Obama Campaign Ends: Federal Judge Orders DNC To Remove Obama From All Ballots October 23, 2008

Posted by Daniel Downs in Barak Obama, Constitution, Democrats, law, news, politics, presidential election, truth, U.S. District Court.

After reviewing evidence presented by Attorney Philip Berg, US District Court Judge Honorable R. Barry Surrick has ruled that Barak Hussein Obama was not a “natural born” or “naturalized” citizen and is ineligible to run for and/or serve as President of the United States.

Judge Surrick then ordered the Democratic National Committee to cease all campaign activity on behalf of their candidate for President. He further ordered Obama be removed from all election ballots.

Before jumping to conclusions, the civil action brief of Attorney Berg begins by identifying himself as a life-long Democrat who is proud of his party. It cannot be said that Berg is a right-wing zealot grasping at any accusation to prevent the oppositional party from being elected. No, Berg is here fulfilling his oath to uphold the Constitution.

In addition to his defense of Constitutional integrity, Berg also says his purpose is to defend the integrity of his Party. Many people have given of their money and time in support of Party goals, which include “to restore accountability, honesty, and openness at all levels of government”, to “restore the Constitution and protect the civil rights and liberties of all Americans,” and to “uphold the Constitution.” Berg continues, “[t]o uphold the Constitution includes making sure that the candidate is eligible to serve as President pursuant to Article II, Section 1 of our United States Constitution and that such candidate runs a fair and legitimate campaign.”

As for the evidence, Berg investigation discovered Obama was born in Kenya. His father was a citizen of Kenya. His mother was 18 years old at the time. Even though a child born to a U.S. citizen could acquire natural born citizenship, his then 18-year-old mother did not meet U.S. law governing citizenship. Obama became a citizen of Kenya. He was schooled there under the name of Barry Hussein Soetoro, the name of his father Lolo Soetoro. His citizenship in Kenya was confirmed from school records.

Attorney Berg and Judge Surrick have proven that Constitutional Democracy in our Republic of states still works as intended by this nation’s Founders. Thank God.

I see nothing on the news wires about this will this actually stop him?

2. Nick - October 25, 2008

I wish that ruling is what happened, but what appears on the court documents at http://news.justia.com/cases/featured/pennsylvania/paedce/2:2008cv04083/281573/ is just a customary part of a filing written by Berg as to what he WANTS the judge to do. Unless the judge actually signs off on it, nothing happens. The judge has not actually ruled yet. Watch http://www.americasright.com/ for updates on the case.

How come the Philly says the suit has been thrown out?

Dear Mr. Downs,

You have cited an UNSIGNED motion, NOT a ruling from the judge as the basis for your recent article and blog entry.
FYI,an attorney’s motion is something different than a judges ruling.

Just thought you should know of your error.

Iain Hall, that is why you have not heard about it elsewhere – Mr Downs is mistaken. Here is an article about the judges actual ruling (as opposed to Mr Berg’s motion):

I am sure that Mr. Downs will offer a retraction shortly.

Thank you for your time.

It is reported elsewhere that the suit was thrown out?


I am tilting from cognitive dissonance. (As if Obama himself didnt supply enough dissonance. Hope that doesnt mean I need to be reeducated.)

6. Daniel Downs - October 25, 2008

This post was an unintentional mistake and not a right-wing ploy against Obama. Obviously, it would have failed anyway. As pointed out by Simon Woon, the above was taken from the case records. The documents I quoted and thought was the judge’s decision turned out to be a procedural standard. The actual decision is still not included in the public record at Justia. Yes, this type of error rightly raises questions concerning my credibility. Though I cannot promise I will never make another huge blunder, I can concerning US District Court information. I apologize to all who were upset by this post.

So far I’ve heard several things about this stuff with Obama. How hard is it really for the Government to check records and see if he was born in America or not. Or in any case maybe even a lack of records.

9. Topper - October 25, 2008

Mr. Downs, You have NO credibility whatsoever. To make a “blunder” the size of this, at a time like this, is of unfathomable enormity.
You cannot under ANY circumstances blow this off as a blunder.
And believe me, I am beyond “upset”.
You made me the fool with all of the people who I emailed your piece of crap to.
I suggest you look into another line of work.
You failed miserably at news reporting!

10. Mooser - October 25, 2008

Are you saying Barack Obama was born when he was 18, or that he was 18 when he was born. That could be the key to the entire case. Somebody, of clear mind and sound body, with impeccable credentials and incredible peccaries, should find out! Oh, they should be a virgin, too. You just can’t get good information from some one who has “done it” . They’re biased. Sometimes they’re just bi.

11. Ryan McQuary - October 25, 2008

I’ve gotta say. There are a lot of idiots out there who can’t accept when people make an honest mistake. Until people find the “TRUE” facts, (and remember the word true because we don’t get truth that much) they should lay off on this guy. Mr. Downs I must at least ask you to ignore it when people tell you that you are a crummy reporter. Some people make mistakes. Other people should just SHUT UP. Americans need to come together not divide themselves. Hot headed idiots are why the country is in the state that it’s in.

[…] stupid, conflates a lawyer’s wish list motion with a judge’s actual ruling and trumpets to the world that the judge has ruled that Obama’s name be removed from all ballots in the United States.   A more apt reader points out to Downs his massive error […]

I heard that they found a unicorn yesterday, too. A leprechaun that was riding it offered the world the cure for cancer and a 200mpg car engine. Tomorrow it will be teaching pigs to fly.

you really are pathetic.

someone who has captured the hearts and minds of a population, and because you dont like him, you want him shipped away.

Disgusting sir, absolutely disgusting.

Typical Conservative, right-wing trash. If you can’t win the election the traditional way, you begin to make up stuff to suppress the vote or disqualify the opponent.

Real classy. Glad you haven’t missed a step since I’ve been gone for a few months.

At least this place doesn’t remind me of a klan rally as some other comment-based blog sites do. So, I do have to give you kudos for that.

Still disgusting :P

First of all… Barack Hussein Obama is a natural born citizen of the United States of America. He was born in Honolulu, Hawaii 47 years ago. He moved back here to the mainland with his mother but then moved back to Hawaii to continue his education in high school. Secondly, Obama is not muslim. He is a protestant CHRISTIAN. His father was muslim but he is not. Thirdly, don’t be scared of his name. His name actually blessed man/true man. Its just a name. He didn’t pick it! If you want to be a true citizen, find out TRUE information first before assuming things. Its not that hard. Im fifteen and still in high school. I have a journalism class and we’ve covered EVERYTHING about this election. So before you go posting things on the internet find out the truth first. Otherwise, in my opinion, you’re just spreading rumors, and thats what happens in highschool. You’re in the real life now so get over it. You should know better by now.
I’m not picking sides, because frankly, I don’t even know who I would vote for, and today is election day. Just get your facts straight.
