Berg postpones march on DC, needs $50,000

Philip Berg

First my humble apologies to any of you who were planning to attend Phil Berg’s “Obama birth certificate / eligibility / Obamacare march on Washington” this weekend, for being a day late late with this news.

In an email message to his supporters yesterday, Berg said that “scheduling conflicts” required that the march be postponed until a date to be determined sometime in August / September. Berg also noted that he needed to raise $50,000 to finance advertising for the rescheduled march.

We’re doing our part here at Obama Conspiracy Theories to publicize the event.

Philip J .Berg, fairly called the “father of the birthers”,  believes Barack Obama was born in Kenya, and then adopted by his stepfather, Lolo Soetoro, thereby becoming Indonesian national and losing US Citizenship.

    Being adopted by a foreign national does not change your nationality. If you are an American citizen, it cannot be changed until you have reached adulthood. Expats who have children born and raised in another country, need only to visit the US by their 18th birthday to retain American citizenship. Besides, Obama was born in my hometown of Honolulu, not Kenya.

    I think Berg is just trying to stretch out the pay-pal con longer.

    Also, his desire to move things to near the Labor Day time-frame seems like a cheap attempt to hope to attach himself to and grift onto some other Glen Beck or Tea Party type national event they are trying to hold around that time and place, to help puff up his numbers.

    “… then adopted by his stepfather, Lolo Soetoro, thereby becoming Indonesian national and losing US Citizenship.”

    A certified copy of Soetoro’s CLN is on file with the DoS, IRS, FBI and DHS. When a true and correct copy of BO’s COLB sees the light of day, then it will be identified as “Amended” due to the nullification of the Soetoro Adoption.

    And yes, I have proof!

    Which event will end up having drawn more participants – Phil Berg’s march or Rev. Manning’s trial?

    Hold on, just hold on everyone. Oh. My. God. I never noticed it before, but the placement of this post, juxtaposing as it does the face of Mr. Berg with the profile of Dr. C. has revealed an important and remarkable discovery. Can anyone deny the remarkable similarity between the father of the birther movement and the father of the anti-birther movement! Has Dr. C.– a.k.a. Phil Berg — been playing us all for fools? Who is the mysterious Dr. C. anyway and why do we never see him in the same room as Phil Berg? Why do they both disparage Orly Taitz? Why does Dr. C.know so much about birth certificates? Why was he selected to be on the cover of TIMES? What is the “real” origin of this blog, and why was it so recently “redesigned”?

    Am I wrong, or wasn’t “Dr.” C. spotted in a KFC with the AG in GA? Homeland Security??? As of this posting, I’m unplugging from the matrix and assuming deep cover. Now longer “Arthur” but . . “Auteur.”

    Make no mistake, We’ve got a real conspiracy on our hands, and it’s going to take the combined efforts of John, and Scott Brown, and Mario, and all those patriotic “We the People” types to unravel it. To quote Winston Churchill, founder of the Olive Garden movement, this thing is a mystery, wrapped in bacon, stuffed inside an enigma, and covered with red sauce. And it just might lead to the Commander ‘n Thief!

    Ok, listen up: If I suddenly stop posting then you’ll know I got too close and the Illuminati decided to . . . . hey, someone’s trying to force his way into my house! Damn it all, why did I let Obama take away my guns! Good by everybody!!! Oh, wait, it’s just Domino’s. Guess my pizza’s here.

    If my mother were here, aleha ha sholem, she’d have this whole thing figured out. I’m so embarrassed that I fell for it.

    You’re right: they are the same person. Do you think they’re collecting names and locations, for FEMA camps? Michelle Bachmann thinks so.

    True story: BP has an Alternative Technology Response Form, asking the public for ideas.

    Wow, that was a sad & disturbing article. I think that once the US finally gets serious about addressing comprehensive immigration reform and enforcing rules on all employers, this type of abuse will be mostly stopped. I think that will also help to reduce some of other illegal industries & abuses (drug trade, & crime, sex-slavery) that happen here too.

    Have your provided this “proof” to Taitz, Berg, or Manning? Probably as solid as the truth that Obama did not attend Columbia U.

    So do you have proof of the adoption (which is of no significance whatsoever even if it happened) or proof that President Obama got Indonesian citizenship thereby (which couldn’t have happened by Indonesian law and wouldn’t have effected his US citizenship even if it did by US law)? We should start a pool on what your proof is – I think that all you’ve got is the Indonesian school records (which if taken at face value are proof of President Obama’s natural born citizenship).

    Just words …

    Obama denies he was ever Barry Soetoro or ever adopted. Why would you or your minion care if Barry Soetoro was issued a Certificate of Loss of Nationality? And why does Obama insist Barry Soetoro’s records are not subject to FOIA requests? If he’s not Soetoro and never has been, why would he care?

    .
    unbelievable! Birther reasoning is a non-existing phenomenon. His prove is that Obama is blocking records of the non existing Barry Soetoro and hypes a non exitsing CLN. Maybe big foot ate this proof. If Dr. C allowed it we would call you S_______!

    “a person under the age of eighteen must convince a U.S. diplomatic or consular officer that he/she fully understands the nature and consequences of the oath of renunciation, is not subject to duress or undue influence, and is voluntarily seeking to renounce his/her U.S. citizenship.”

    that’s one hell of a convincing six year old.

    I would argue that Birthers are endothermic. They react, but never release actual energy (in the form of meaningful results).

    If you apply heat by demanding proof of their assertions, they melt like ice cubes or evaporate into gas.
