Is Hillary Doing Unto Obama What Obama Did To Alice Palmer?

I Hate to Say I Told You So But....

HILLARY and Alice Palmer May Be Getting Revenge!

Have you read those propaganda statements that Obama became a Illinois State Senator unopposed?

Do you know why he was unopposed?

The wildly popular Illinois State Senator Alice Palmer was going places, she was moving up and she invited Obama to run for her seat.

BUT things change and Alice Palmer decided to run for re-election instead. She asked Obama to back out of the race and support her.

But Obama refused and decided to run even though everyone said he didn't have a chance against Ms. Palmer.

SO... Obama got her application and found loopholes! Based on these loopholes he had her disqualified! His Harvard Law degree came in handy for something!

THEN he kept looking and found loopholes and minor errors in all the other candidates applications too and had every other candidate thrown out of the race!!

Surprise! Obama won unopposed!!!!

This is how Obama began his political career!

Dirty tricks!

NOW its Hillary and Alice's turn!

Alice Palmer is a key figure in Hillary's campaign!

Their Dirty Trick for Revenge:

Remember all those posts a while back claiming that Obama was not born in the US (because he was born before Hawaii became a state)?

A loophole...

McCain wasn't born in the US either technically, he was born in Panama

A loophole...

Most of us shrugged these stories off...

But not Hillary and Alice!! They were waiting for the best timing... Five days before the DNC... AND right after Obama announced that Hillary would not be his VP. It would have much easier for the Clinton's to have just killed Obama had she been his pick. But this may work just as well...

Hillary's friend Philip Berg has filed suit in Philadelphia five days prior to the Democratic Convention claiming that Obama's birth certificate clearly disqualifies him!

IF Obama can't be president the Democrats would vote Hillary!

IF Obama is disqualified over this loophole and Hillary become the nominee the US is almost certain going to explode with riots!

Enter martial law...
And the Bush/Clinton Dynasty stays in power one way or the other!

Check this out!!!


Editor's Note

Is this legal filing on Obama's birth certificate part of a carefully prepared ploy to trigger a crisis at the Democratic Convention? The suit was filed in Philadelphia five days prior to the Democratic Convention.

Philip Berg is close to Hillary Clinton. Is this action being launched because Hillary Clinton was not chosen as Obama's running mate for the office of the Vice President?

Will the law suit be allowed to proceed?

Are the Republicans supportive of this initiative? Will the lawsuit be used by the McCain campaign?

The mainstream media has not covered the issue. There is barely mention of the lawsuit in America's main news sources. The text of the Press Release is contained in Annex. Links to the main legal documents are also provided.

A prominent Philadelphia attorney and Hillary Clinton supporter filed suit this afternoon in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania against Illinois Sen. Barack Obama, the Democratic National Committee and the Federal Election Commission. The action seeks an injunction preventing the senator from continuing his candidacy and a court order enjoining the DNC from nominating him next week, all on grounds that Sen. Obama is constitutionally ineligible to run for and hold the office of President of the United States.

Philip Berg, the filing attorney, is a former gubernatorial and senatorial candidate, former chair of the Democratic Party in Montgomery (PA) County, former member of the Democratic State Committee, and former Deputy Attorney General of Pennsylvania. According to Berg, he filed the suit--just days before the DNC is to hold its nominating convention in Denver--for the health of the Democratic Party.

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

Berg cited a number of unanswered questions regarding the Illinois senator's background, and in today's lawsuit maintained that Sen. Obama is not a natural born U.S. citizen or that, if he ever was, he lost his citizenship when he was adopted in Indonesia. Berg also cites what he calls "dual loyalties" due to his citizenship and ties with Kenya and Indonesia.

Even if Sen. Obama can prove his U.S. citizenship, Berg stated, citing the senator's use of a birth certificate from the state of Hawaii verified as a forgery by three independent document forensic experts, the issue of "multi-citizenship with responsibilities owed to and allegiance to other countries" remains on the table.

In the lawsuit, Berg states that Sen. Obama was born in Kenya, and not in Hawaii as the senator maintains. Before giving birth, according to the lawsuit, Obama's mother traveled to Kenya with his father but was prevented from flying back to Hawaii because of the late stage of her pregnancy, "apparently a normal restriction to avoid births during a flight." As Sen. Obama's own paternal grandmother, half-brother and half-sister have also claimed, Berg maintains that Stanley Ann Dunham--Obama's mother--gave birth to little Barack in Kenya and subsequently flew to Hawaii to register the birth.

Berg cites inconsistent accounts of Sen. Obama's birth, including reports that he was born at two separate hospitals--Kapiolani Hospital and Queens Hospital--in Honolulu, as well a profound lack of birthing records for Stanley Ann Dunham, though simple "registry of birth" records for Barack Obama are available in a Hawaiian public records office.

Should Sen. Obama truly have been born in Kenya, Berg writes, the laws on the books at the time of his birth hold that U.S. citizenship may only pass to a child born overseas to a U.S. citizen parent and non-citizen parent if the former was at least 19 years of age. Sen. Obama's mother was only 18 at the time. Therefore, because U.S. citizenship could not legally be passed on to him, Obama could not be registered as a "natural born" citizen and would therefore be ineligible to seek the presidency pursuant to Article II, Section 1 of the United States Constitution.

Moreover, even if Sen. Obama could have somehow been deemed "natural born," that citizenship was lost in or around 1967 when he and his mother took up residency in Indonesia, where Stanley Ann Dunham married Lolo Soetoro, an Indonesian citizen. Berg also states that he possesses copies of Sen. Obama's registration to Fransiskus Assisi School In Jakarta, Indonesia which clearly show that he was registered under the name "Barry Soetoro" and his citizenship listed as Indonesian.

The Hawaiian birth certificate, Berg says, is a forgery. In the suit, the attorney states that the birth certificate on record is a forgery, has been identified as such by three independent document forensic experts, and actually belonged to Maya Kasandra Soetoro, Sen. Obama's half-sister.

"Voters donated money, goods and services to elect a nominee and were defrauded by Sen. Obama's lies and obfuscations," Berg stated. "If the DNC officers ... had performed one ounce of due diligence we would not find ourselves in this emergency predicament, one week away from making a person the nominee who has lost their citizenship as a child and failed to even perform the basic steps of regaining citizenship as prescribed by constitutional laws."

"It is unfair to the country," he continued, "for candidates of either party to become the nominee when there is any question of the ability to serve if elected."


Chicago Sun-Times—A close examination of Obama’s first campaign clouds the image he has cultivated throughout his political career: Obama, who runs on a message of giving a voice to the voiceless, first entered public office not by leveling the playing field, but by clearing it. Alice Palmer, friend and mentor to Obama, served the district in the Illinois Senate for much of the 1990s. Decades earlier, she was a community organizer in the area when Obama was growing up in Hawaii. She risked her safe seat to run for Congress and touted Obama as a suitable successor. But when Palmer lost the congressional race, her supporters asked Obama to fold his campaign so she could easily retain her state Senate seat. Obama not only refused to step aside for the woman who was his friend and had recommended him for the seat, he filed challenges that nullified Palmer’s hastily gathered nominating petitions, forcing her to withdraw.

Black Activist Alice Palmer Trusted Barack Obama

In 1995, Alice Palmer was a longtime Black activist, a “beloved elder stateswoman” in the Illinois state senate. She had a long record of community organizing and had earned a ’safe seat’ — ie, no one even tried to run against her. She was doing excellent work for the Black activist community, and holding that seat securely for them, so they could spend their resources elsewhere.

Barack Obama had never run for office. He was a 32-year-old wannabee hanging around the Chicago political machine, hoping for someone to give him a boost.

Palmer had a chance to run in a special election for a higher office. Obama was young, with an inspiring manner and an innocent grin. Palmer trusted him.

She introduced him to party elders and donors as her probable successor, and helped him gather signatures to get on the ballot. She didn’t get any agreement with him in writing. She trusted him.

Then Palmer’s higher race went poorly. To get on the ballot for her old seat, she also gathered signatures, all under the 1995 list of registered voters — hastily, collecting only the minimum number of signatures needed. When she and party elders asked Obama to withdraw, offering him help in getting an additional post elsewhere, Obama refused. So Palmer prepared to let the voters decide between them.

But instead of letting the voters decide, Obama got Palmer (as well as the rest of his opponents) knocked off the ballot for her own seat. As soon as a 1996 list of registered voters was completed which purged over 15,000 voters from the registered list, he challenged all his opponents' signatures against the purged list. Since some voters had moved or died, not enough matches could be found. (Obama’s own signatures were never put to the same test.)

So Obama charged Palmer with ‘fraud’, had her disgraced and knocked out of politics — rather than run a fair campaign against her.

Running as the only name on the ballot, Obama took Palmer’s safe seat. Soon he abandoned it for an unsuccessful higher office run himself. So instead of Palmer in her safe seat and Obama in another seat, their party had lost them both.

Palmer made some mistakes, but she is not running for President of the US on a claim of judgement and unity and courtesy, as Obama claims to be. Palmer’s mistakes came from innocent optimism — and trusting Barack Obama.
