When SueK posted a link in a comment to at 10:09A today, I went and scanned the news that Philip J. Berg, a Lafayette Hill, PA attorney, had filed a restraining order to prohibit Barack Obama from running for President. Since I was on the fly for work, I set aside indepth reading until later.

Then, at 2:53P, 2:56P and 2:57P, AdrianS followed up with the same link, on not one, but three different threads.

Do I sense some urgency here?? LOL Okay, group… got the message to put it somewhere everyone can find easier, right? Here it is… it’s own post. And thank you for the heads up… both of you. (maybe… unless it shows up as an urban legend! heh)

First of all, the ObamaCrimes site they linked to is the gold mine of data because it contains PDFs of the filed briefs. Haven’t had a chance to read them yet. And since this hasn’t hit the MSM that I’ve seen yet, I thought I’d find out more about the attorney.

He’s definitely an activist. And not likely to be conservative in leanings. His bio, per the 911forthetruth blog, show that Berg’s dabbled in such low profile cases such as challenging the 2000 election, called for the voluntary disbarment of three Supremes via letter in Dec 2001, and branched out also representing PAWS to protect the rights of performing elephants. (yes, Virginia… there *is* sarcasm in this paragraph)

Berg apparently has (or had?) a blog at the 911forthetruth site, but it’s out of date. The last entry was May 30th, 2005, posted from Madrid.

Well look out Obama… Mr. Berg has set his sights on you in a way your campaign cannot ignore…. the US courts.

Berg vs. Obama, Civil Action No. 08-cv-4083, seeking a Declaratory Judgment and an Injunction that Obama does not meet the qualifications to be President of the United States. Berg filed this suit for the best interests of the Democratic Party and the citizens of the United States.
Philip J. Berg, Esquire stated in his lawsuit that Senator Obama:

1. Is not a naturalized citizen; and/or

2. Lost his citizenship when he was adopted in Indonesia; and/or

3. Has dual loyalties because of his citizenship with Kenya and Indonesia.

Berg stated: “I filed this action at this time to avoid the obvious problems that will occur when the Republican Party raises these issues after Obama is nominated.

What immediately leaps to mind is that he is a Hillary supporter. Indeed, this is what The Digital Journal: The Power of Citizen Journalism opined in their headline on their post today. James I. Nienhuis from Dancing from Genesis also has this posted at his blog, also with the same suggestion that perhaps the Hillary campaign has “pulled the trigger”. Nienhuis is a Dartmouth grad with a B of Sc. Somehow I’d like to believe he doesn’t get pulled into hoaxes easily…

The Hillary Clinton Forum is calling it a hoax… but I’m not so sure. Certainly the legal briefs carry a signature, but there is no filing date stamped on these copies. So it could, or could not be a hoax. It’s not impossible for one to do this, and if Berg’s history is indeed historically correct, it sure is his style and issue.

UPDATE: One Hillary Forum poster named Lynfreedom posted the below:

just called the PA courts. Berg did indeed file the lawsuit yesterday. This is not a rumor. it was done. When I ask her if it could be looked up on line, she said you need name, case number, etc. and when I told her what it was she said oh that was just filed yesterday. And, I will say her tone went from serious to gleeful.

BTW, ignore the later post by “thebword” that says BHO and Berg went to Harvard together. She was using a Philip C. Berg, not Philip J. Berg.


As far as a Hillary supporter? Possible. There is no donations on record for a Philip Berg from PA to suggest that is true. It’s unlikely he’s a McCain supporter, so again… not impossible.

Anyway… breaking rumor, or breaking news… one or the other. Just passing it along with a louder voice than Adrian and SueK had. But rumors/stories like this can’t be kept down. Someone will be able to wander in the PA federal courts and verify if the briefs have been filed or not. The rest of us? We’ll be waiting….
