ATTORNEY PHILIP J. BERG: THIS IS THE BIGGEST HOAX IN AMERICAN HISTORY
by Sharon Rondeau
(Oct. 21, 2010) — Philadelphia attorney Philip J. Berg will be holding a “Birth Certificate/Eligibility/Obamacare” rally on the West Front of the U.S. Capitol in Washington, DC this Saturday, October 23, 2010 from noon to 4:00 p.m. with the purpose of heightening public awareness of Obama’s questionable eligibility to hold the office of President of the United States.
On August 21, 2008, Attorney Berg filed a lawsuit against Barack Hussein Obama and Howard Dean, Chairman of the Democrat National Committee, claiming that Obama did not meet the definition of “natural born Citizen” as outlined in Article II, Section 1, clause 5 of the U.S. Constitution. According to his website, Berg was “the first Attorney who filed suit against Barack H. Obama challenging Obama’s lack of ‘qualifications’ to serve as President of the United States.”
The Post & Email was able to speak with Mr. Berg this morning by telephone regarding the rally and what he hopes to accomplish from it.
MRS. RONDEAU: Thank you for speaking with me on short notice, Attorney Berg. When did you first conceive of the idea of a “birth certificate rally” in Washington?
ATTY. BERG: Earlier this year. The reason for a rally is to hopefully have enough people there to push the issue forward, as the courts have denied us the right to get to the truth of the matter. The courts in our country have no guts, just as the national media has no guts. So we have to proceed around them.
MRS. RONDEAU: How many people do you expect will attend?
ATTY. BERG: I have no idea; it could be anywhere from ten people to 1,000,000.
MRS. RONDEAU: So there wasn’t anything such as a registration which would give you an idea of how many people planned to be there?
ATTY. BERG: No.
MRS. RONDEAU: I know you obtained a permit for the U.S. Capitol, West Front. Do you know if Obama will be in Washington that day? Does he know about your plans?
ATTY. BERG: I’m sure they know about everything. I’m sure they monitor us as well as other groups. I understand he’s going to be on the National Mall that day because there’s a national science fair or something like that going on that day.
MRS. RONDEAU: Did you have any problem obtaining a permit?
ATTY. BERG: None whatsoever.
MRS. RONDEAU: Do you happen to know if media will be there?
ATTY. BERG: I know the foreign media is going to be there because they have contacted me. The national media? Probably not. But I’m hoping the secondary media will be, and one of the foreign media is coming to broadcast it to about 20 countries. If we don’t get it from the front door, we’ll get it from the back door.
MRS. RONDEAU: What does that say when foreign journalists are coming here, or sending their people who are already in the United States, but our own media will not be there to cover it?
ATTY. BERG: I think it’s a disgrace. I was interviewed about a year ago by The New York Times, and I raised the issue that I wish I could sue the national media, including The New York Times (they even printed that part), because I think it’s a disgrace what they haven’t done. If the national media did 10% to Obama what they did to Sarah Palin, Obama never would have been nominated, let alone elected.
MRS. RONDEAU: Do you think the national media was involved in a conspiracy to keep Obama’s history from the American people? Did they know he wasn’t eligible?
ATTY. BERG: I think so. I think it’s pressure from the top. The national media in our country is really owned by about three or four corporations which are controlled by individuals, and I believe that these individuals have put pressure on them. There was an investigation done that there is actually an office in the White House which is keeping pressure on the national media not to cover the story.
MRS. RONDEAU: Do you think Fox News is included in that?
ATTY. BERG: I think they’re included to a degree. Glenn Beck is a prime example. He makes no sense. Ninety percent of his effort is against Obama. Everything’s bad about Obama. However, he won’t touch the birth certificate issue, which makes no sense whatsoever. So I think it’s pressure from on top; discuss anything about Obama, but not his birth certificate. I think (Rupert) Murdoch is exerting the pressure. It’s a disgrace.
MRS. RONDEAU: A lot of our readers are really angry with Glenn Beck for that reason. If he is so ardent an admirer of the U.S. Constitution, one would wonder why he leaves out any discussion of Article II, Section 1, clause 5 when there’s this tremendous issue out in front of the American people?
ATTY. BERG: I was even honored by Beck, I guess you would say, because he had my picture up on his blackboard for three days one week. I “made” his blackboard, so I think I’m an “instigator.”
MRS. RONDEAU: Did he refer to you as a “birther,” or just an “instigator”?
ATTY. BERG: Oh, no, I’m a birther. I don’t know if he said it. I’m the father of this thing!
MRS. RONDEAU: Yours was the first case that was filed back in August 2008, correct?
ATTY. BERG: Yes. August 21, 2008 was when I filed the first lawsuit, which was significant because it was before the Democratic National Convention, and we served Obama and Howard Dean. At that point, I said that Howard Dean violated his duty and responsibility as head of the Democratic National Committee by not pulling Obama in and saying, “The allegations here are that you’re not “natural born; show me you are, or you’re not getting nominated no matter what you’ve planned here in Denver.” It’s a disgrace, because Howard Dean should have called him in at that point, and obviously, it shows that Dean was in cahoots with Obama.
When all is said and done, I think that Obama, Michelle Obama, Howard Dean, senior officials of the Obama campaign and senior officials of the Obama administration who are all aware of this should be subjected to our criminal justice system in this country, tried, and those convicted should go to jail. As far as I’m concerned, Obama should be tried, convicted, and go to jail until he’s deported. People are saying, “Oh, if the truth came out and Obama’s out of office, there would be riots in the street.” I’m saying, “When the truth comes out – it’s not if – When the truth comes out, and hopefully while Obama is still in office and we force him out of office, I’m going to hold a massive news conference with all the political and religious leaders in this country and say, “Stop. You’re going to go riot in the streets? You’re going to injure and kill people? You’re going to destroy property? For what? For this phony, this fraud, this impostor who knew from the beginning what he was doing?” I think it’s the biggest hoax against the United States of America in our history in 234 years, and all those people should be held accountable.
MRS. RONDEAU: Will you hold a press conference during the rally?
ATTY. BERG: It depends on which press is there. The foreign press has requested interview time, and I had said I will grant the press complete access.
I am urging people to attend, because as I said in my press release, I believe that we are the umbrella for everyone. That’s significant because no matter what your issue is with Obama, whether it’s taxation, health care, social security, anti-war, you’re not going to move forward, but you can move forward under our issue. My issue is the umbrella; my issue is that he’s not constitutionally eligible to be president; therefore, he can’t be impeached. We can force him out of office, and once he’s out of office, everything he’s done becomes void. Everything is voidable because he’s a phony.
MRS. RONDEAU: I think a lot of people have wondered about that: if some things would be voided or if it would be everything. Is it true that you have proof that Obama was born in Kenya or another foreign country?
ATTY. BERG: The best proof we have is a tape on our website of Sarah Obama, who is Obama’s step-grandmother, in which she states that she was in the hospital when he was born in Kenya on August 4, 1961. It’s pretty hard to refute that. We’re trying to get one of the ministers there this weekend – I’m not sure if he’s coming – who was one of the translators of her remarks in Swahili. These ministers have known her for several years before all of this broke. That’s the best evidence. The other thing is, what has Obama shown? He has shown only that Certification of Live Birth which does not have the weight of the baby, length of the baby, the hospital name, the doctor’s name, and the doctor’s signature (Editor’s Note: Comment #1181). That’s what’s on a long-form birth certificate. In one of his two autobiographies, Obama states that he found his birth certificate. So where is it? He was interviewed by Brian Williams a month or so ago, and he said, “I can’t walk around with my birth certificate plastered to my forehead.” Well, we don’t want it plastered to his forehead; we want to see it.
MRS. RONDEAU: No one has asked that he walk around with it plastered to his forehead.
ATTY. BERG: And he has already spent over $1.6 million – it’s probably over $2,000,000 now – fighting my three lawsuits and the 50-100 other lawsuits out there. You don’t spend that kind of money unless you’re hiding something.
The other thing is that Congressman Posey from Florida introduced legislation that as of 2012, anyone running for president must prove he or she is constitutionally eligible. Several Republicans cosponsored the proposal, but not one Democrat. Now why didn’t the Democrats join in? Because the Democrats who have committed or are, in my opinion, on the verge of treason, have not signed on because they know that Obama is a fraud and a phony.
MRS. RONDEAU: It makes one wonder, if he is not removed from office before 2011 when the campaign will begin, how he thinks he’s going to get his name on the ballots of all 50 states.
ATTY. BERG: I think he’s committed fraud by doing that. I believe that even more important than where he was born, and I keep trying to stress this to people, is the fact that he was adopted or acknowledged in Indonesia, because otherwise, he couldn’t have gone to school. We have his school record there which says that his name is “Barry Soetoro,” his nationality is “Indonesian,” and his religion is “Muslim.” Now if he hasn’t legally changed his name since that time, you can use an alias, but not for fraudulent purposes. And he’s doing it for fraudulent purposes. So if he hasn’t legally changed his name in court, and there’s no evidence that he has, he committed fraud every time he signed his name in each of the 50 states to run for office, and he continues the fraud by using that name at this point.
MRS. RONDEAU: The Post & Email had run a story in which a person fluent in Indonesian had translated the school registration form completely, so we’re quite sure that that is what it says. That begs the question of how could he have been eligible to run for President of the United States as a “natural born Citizen”?
ATTY. BERG: I had an argument with an immigration attorney in Washington, DC at the CPAC Convention back in February. He wasn’t buying the Obama argument, and I said, “OK, you don’t buy the Obama argument. Let’s switch it; let’s talk about the children from Haiti.” He said, “OK.” I said, “Well, the children from Haiti are cutting off their relationship with their families in Haiti and they’re being adopted here and taking on the nationality of the United States and the family name of the adoptive family.” He said, “Absolutely.” Then I said, “Well, why doesn’t that apply in the reverse to Obama?” “It doesn’t.” Well, it does. In Obama’s other autobiography, he wrote of the fact that his parents divorced, his mother remarried; he mentioned “My stepfather returned to Indonesia before my mother and me.” So he acknowledges him as his stepfather; then he said, “When I went to Indonesia, I immediately went to school.”
In the 1960s, Indonesia was at war, so the only ones who could go to school were those considered “natural born.” He wasn’t born there, but you were considered “natural born” if you were adopted or acknowledged by your stepfather, which is on the school record. So at that point, his name was “Barry Soetoro.”
I have one lawsuit pending in the U.S. Court of Appeals in DC, which just ruled against me, so we’re appealing it to the U.S. Supreme Court. Well, I think that case is the key to the whole thing, because I’m alleging there that he not only is not natural born, but he’s not naturalized, either. Therefore, he’s an illegal alien and he not only cannot be president, but his term as a U.S. Senator from Illinois was fraudulent. That, to me, is significant. The interesting thing on that case, if you’ve followed it, is that under the “Qui Tam” or “False Claims Act,” “standing” has already been granted by the U.S. Supreme Court to the person bringing that action. That person is called a “relator,” and I am the relator in that case. So the standing issue is there, and the court didn’t buy the fact of conflict of interest. If there’s no conflict of interest in that case, there’s no such thing as conflict of interest for this reason: Eric Holder is the attorney general. When you file a False Claims Act case, the attorney general’s office makes a decision along with the U.S. attorney’s office and the Justice Department, both of which come under the attorney general’s office.
Eric Holder was a senior member of Obama’s campaign staff, and he was one of three individuals selected to sit on the committee to choose the vice president, and he was nominated and confirmed as attorney general, which is the highest law enforcement officer in the country and reports to the president. So if that’s not a conflict of interest…I asked that I be allowed to pursue the case and a special prosecutor be appointed, and they ruled against us, and that’s where we’re going to be able to appeal to the Supreme Court.
MRS. RONDEAU: It doesn’t make sense that the court ruled against you when you’re citing many reasons why the case should be heard. Is there something horribly wrong with every court in this country? What has gone wrong with the judiciary that they will not hear these cases?
ATTY. BERG: There are not guts. No guts, and hopefully the Supreme Court will act on the last case. But that’s why we’re proceeding as we are. As the Constitution starts: “We the People.” So I need as many of “We the People” coming this weekend as possible.
