Lawsuit challenging BHO citizenship status dismissed

“The order and memorandum came down at approximately 6:15 p.m. on Friday. Philip Berg’s lawsuit challenging Illinois Sen. Barack Obama’s constitutional eligibility to serve as president of the United States had been dismissed by the Hon. R. Barclay Surrick on grounds that the Philadelphia attorney and former Deputy Attorney General for the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania lacked standing.”

“So, who does have standing? According to the Hon. R. Barclay Surrick, that’s completely up to Congress to decide.”

If, through the political process, Congress determines that citizens, voters, or party members should police the Constitution’s eligibility requirements for the Presidency, then it is free to pass laws conferring standing on individuals like Plaintiff. Until that time, voters do not have standing to bring the sort of challenge that Plaintiff attempts to bring in the Amended Complaint.

Berg, nonetheless, is disappointed by Surrick’s decision and will issue a press release today detailing his plans to appeal to the Third Circuit Court of Appeals and then to the United States Supreme Court.

“This is a question of who has standing to stand up for our Constitution,” Berg said. “If I don’t have standing, if you don’t have standing, if your neighbor doesn’t have standing to ask whether or not the likely next president of the United States–the most powerful man in the entire world–is eligible to be in that office in the first place, then who does?”

    Berg is absolutely right! We are not in a communist country yet. We are supposed to have rights. We have the right, as human beings, to know who we are going to elect as U.S. President and to demand that whoever wants to be elected President abides by the U.S. Constitution .

    Obama has a birth certificate from Hawaii, making him a U.S. citizen. It has been verified as authentic ( He’s over 35 years old.

    Therefore, he is eligible for U.S President.

    You know what is interesting Thnikkaman? The Hawaiian birth certificate is computer generated (and they didn’t have computers in 1961), plus it bears no signatures, baby foot print etc., as one would expect on an original document, not to mention the lack of a seal. Not conclusive, just suspicious. Plus, wasn’t Obama originally born Barry? Also, you have Berg’s claim Obama’s mother made him an Indonesian citizen. And then you have another researcher insisting Obama’s grandmother claims Barack was born in Kenya. Obama could clear all this up in a heart beat with an original birth certificate proving his Hawaiian birth, but so far, for some reason, he has refused to do so. Why would he leave this loose end hanging and risk a Constitutional crisis after the election if he wins? Too many redlights on the dashboard if you ask me.
