Caros Amigos, Leitores, Correspondentes,
Este final de ano não foi nada fácil para mim, principalmente para o exercício de minhas atividades profissionais. Como vocês já devem saber, tivemos problemas por causa de ataques de vírus nos computadores e também em nosso site. O site IMORTAIS GUERREIROS e os blogs (são 5) já estã sanados, porém ainda faltam muitas atualizações. Ficaremos devendo algumas importantes matérias que deveriam ter sido divulgadas este ano. Tamanho trabalho com a recuperação destes espaços cibernéticos tirou o tempo para escrever bons artigos e para configurar outros tantos de tanta gente boa para publicar. Já os computadores ainda não estão funcionando completamente bem e ainda sofrem ataques diários que precisam ser combatidos. Isso sempre ocasiona alguma perda de tempo e, é lógico, desconcentração.
É desanimador a gente trabalhar com tanto sacrifício, gosto e afinco para levar às pessoas a verdade e informações diversificadas da 'mesmolândia' que infesta nossa mídia de massas, e se ver impedido de realizar esse trabalho por causa de nada democráticos e covardes ataques de gente má, desonesta e amante da escravidão ideológica. É triste a gente se ver obrigado a gastar o que não tem para levar um sonho, um ideal, à frente, diante de tantos percalços provocados por inimigos covardes. Eu acredito no meu trabalho, acredito que é importante levar informações verídicas e/ou, ao menos, não estigmatizadas, para o maior número de pessoas possível.
Além desses problemas técnicos QUE JÁ DEIXARAM O SITE E OS BLOGS COM PROBLEMAS DE ATUALIZAÇÃO POR QUASE DOIS MESES, eu sou mãe e esposa. Portanto, nessa época de final do ano, está toda a 'tropa' em casa, exigindo mais atenção ainda do que durante o ano. E, não sei se vocês sabem, eu sinto que devo ser, ainda neste momento de desenvolvimento de meus filhos, primeiro a mãe e, depois, a profissional. Sei que há quem não concorde com isso, mas, paciência, é assim que eu sinto que deva ser, pelo menos no meu caso.
Por tudo isso, e por ainda não ter aprendido a fazer a mágica de prolongar o tempo, bem como a de fabricar dinheiro, termino esse ano devendo algumas coisas para todos vocês - principalmente boas e esclarecedoras matérias.
Eu sei, por exemplo, que o STF praticamente já decretou a falência do Estado de Roraima, entregando boa parte de seu território nordeste a quem nunca pertenceu, desprezando todos os alertas que foram dados, em todos os meios de comunicação, principalmente através da internet. Oito dos ministros foram nomeados pelo governo Lula. Portanto, não é preciso ser gênio para entender o por quê de seus votos terem sido favoráveis à demarcação contínua das terras da reserva Raposa - Serra do Sol e à retirada dos chamados não-índios daquela região.
Sei disso, e não pude, ainda, escrever artigo sobre esse lastimpavel último espisódio. Digo, somente e por hora, entretanto, que nenhum brasileiro elegeu um único ministro sequer do STF. Quem deveria, assim, decidir sobre essa grave questão, já que o Executivo, em sua maioria, age contra os interesses da nação, seria o povo brasileiro, em plebiscito, através de votos, ainda que eltrônicos, porém, necessariamente impressos - para possível conferência - e sob propaganda rigorosamente controlada em termos de paridade de tempo (e com rigorosa proibição de 'merchandising' em novelas e programas televisivos, como aconteceu, aliás, e em favor do SIM, no caso da campanha pelo desarmamento da população, antes do inútil plebiscito - já que a vontade popular acabou não sendo respeitada, uma vez que o acesso do cidadão comum e honesto às armas e à munição é cada vez mais difícil, para não dizer impossível, por causa do Estaturo do Desarmamento em si, cujo teor não foi o objeto consultado).
Esse é apenas um dos exemplos de como tem sido conduzida a nossa falsificada democracia. Primeiro, o Executivo governa à base de canetadas, compõe com o chamado Congresso, e aprova leis absurdas, principalmente sob o ponto de vista prático e cultural da maioria dos brasileiros. Depois, vêm as contestações judiciais que, como se estivéssemos em plena vigência da independência dos Poderes, vão à julgamento pelos tribunais superiores. Então, estes, por sua vez, aprovam aquilo que o Executivo sempre quis que fosse aprovado. Uma farsa de processo democrático engana trouxa.
Assim tem sido e, dessa forma, aprova-se, a despeito da vontade da maioria dos brasileiros, por exemplo, considerar um embrião como ser, ou não-ser, desprovido de direito à vida; a lei seca radical (que já provocou a demissão de centenas de milhares de pessoas); a entrega de terras e mais terras particulares a sem-terras, quilombolas e indígenas; a prorrogação infidável do julgamento dos envolvidos no escândalo do mensalão (bem como o de tantos envolvidos em vários outros escândalos - uma quantidade infinita deles); a divisão racial dos brasileiros e tantas outras coisas.
Sei, também, e sobre isso já tive oportunidade de falar em outras ocasiões, que a imprensa insiste em mostrar os brasileiros comprando e comprando neste Natal. Mostra o que? Mostra os centros de comércio popular. Há dez anos, mostrava os shoppings e as lojas de rua tradicionais. Ou seja, o comércio de produtos brasileiros, de produtos de qualidade se reduz a cada dia, a cada ano, e a imprensa continua a dizer que está tudo normal e maravilhoso, quando milhões de brasileiros vão às ruas comprar quinquilharias 'made in países que escravizam mão-de-obra'.
O que dizem? Dizem que as vendas crescem a cada ano. E crescem mesmo. Mas, crescem como? Crescem porque as pessoas, não podendo mais comprar uma boa camisa, por exemplo, feita por indústrias sérias e comprometidas com os direitos dos trabalhadores (e que gerariam renda e mais empregos bons para mais brasileiros, e mais produtividade - o que baratearia os preços), passam a ter que comprar 10 quinquilharias vagabundas importadas de indústrias de países sem compromisso nenhum com os direitos trabalhistas, por preços inacreditavelmente baratos, para compensarem o bom produto que não puderam comprar. Assim, em termos quantitativos, é claro que as vendas cresceram. Mas, e o resto?
E tantos outros assuntos que estou devendo...
Continuarei a publicar uma ou outra coisa, até o começo de janeiro, quando novamente me mudarei de cidade, deixando a bela Brasília. Voltarei, se tudo der certo, no princípio do mês de Fevereiro. Voltaremos com novidades e com novos projetos, prontos para mais um ano de lutas. A inutilidade e a mediocridade são motivos reais, no meu ponto de vista, para que se desista de um objetivo. Mas, as dificuldades, não – essas servem de estímulo.
Sei que devo ainda respostas as mais diversas a muitos que me têm escrito. Desculpem. Espero que essas respostas cheguem a cada um de vocês, ainda que aos poucos, ao longo do mês de janeiro e de fevereiro. Peço paciência e compreensão a todos. Durante o período de mudança, o e-mail ficará com resposta automática, esclarecendo os motivos da pausa e o dia de nossa volta.
Obrigada a todos vocês, pelos comentários, pela participação, pelas críticas, pelo apoio e pela amizade - muitas delas as quais, inclusive já tendo deixado de estar apenas no plano virtual. Fiz amigos muito especiais nesses já quase 5 anos de trabalho na ‘rede’.
Desejo a todos aqueles que me acompanharam um Natal com muita paz e um 2009 de renovação de forças.
Um grande abraço a todos,

(c) A Certified copy of Obama’s Oath of Allegiance.
At the time Plaintiff’s Complaint was filed, Plaintiff was requesting protections
from the Court in order to stop Obama from being nominated by the DNC as the Democratic Presidential Nominee as Obama is not eligible to serve as President of the United States. However, Obama was nominated by the DNC as the Democratic Presidential Nominee. For this reason, Plaintiff must amend his Complaint and will be Requesting this Court leave to file a First Amended Complaint.
A. OVERVIEW OF PLAINTIFF’S COMPLAINT
Plaintiff is a life long Democrat who had always been proud of his Party. Plaintiff is a licensed attorney in good standing and has taken an oath to uphold the United States Constitution. Plaintiff has donated money and billable hours to Democratic Presidential candidates as well as to the Democratic National Committee. Plaintiff has relied on the DNC’s promises to uphold our Constitution, which includes properly Vetting our Presidential Nominee and ensuring our Party’s Nominee is eligible to serve as President of the United States pursuant to Article II, Section 1 of our United States Constitution.
In addition, Plaintiff has trusted the Federal Election Committee (“FEC”) that they would ensure our Presidential and Congress candidates were eligible for the Positions which they were seeking and running a fair and legitimate campaign process. Plaintiff has relied on the FEC, DNC and all our Elected Office Holders to uphold our Constitution and to ensure an illegal alien and/or a naturalized citizen would not be able To secure the position of President of the
The DNC has pledged and promised Plaintiff and all Democratic individuals they Believe that our Constitution, our courts, our institutions and our traditions are proper and Work. The DNC pledged and promised Plaintiff and all Democratic individuals they will ensure our Constitution is not a nuisance and have assured Plaintiff and democratic Individuals the United States Constitution is the foundation of our democracy. It makes Freedom and self-governance possible, and helps to protect our security. The Democratic Party has pledged and promised Plaintiff and other Democratic individuals they will maintain and restore our Constitution to its proper place in our government and return Our Nation to the best traditions, including their commitment to government by law.
Based on the DNC’s promises and assurances, Plaintiff and other democratic individuals have donated money in good faith to the DNC and other Democratic Presidential Nominees. Money donated to the DNC is used to plan the Party's quadrennial presidential nominating convention; promote the election of eligible Party candidates, pursuant to the United States Constitution, Article II, Section I, with both technical and financial support; and works with national, state and local party Organizations, elected officials, candidates and constituencies to respond to the needs and Views of the Democratic electorate and the nation.
In vetting the Presidential candidate, among other things, the DNC and FEC are required to ensure the eligibility requirements pursuant to our Constitution are met and the Presidential nominee, if elected, is qualified and eligible to serve pursuant to our United States Constitution.
In order to be eligible and qualified to run for the Office of the President of the

Lolo Soetoro, an Indonesian State citizen, could not have enrolled Obama in school unless Lolo Soetoro signed an acknowledgement acknowledging Obama as his Son, which had to be filed with the Government.

by Obama’s illegal campaign and will continue to be violated if Obama is allowed to
continue his campaign and if elected, assume the position of President of the United
States. The DNC and FEC have allowed Obama to continue his campaigning, knowing
These issues have arisen and have failed to take and/or instigate the proper investigation
Into said matters to protect Plaintiff and other registered voters. Therefore, the only
Option Plaintiff had to secure and protect his civil rights was to bring action before this
Honorable Court. Moreover, our laws which protect Plaintiff, a legal registered voter,
And other registered voters from fraudulent campaign schemes have been violated by the
Defendants, 2 U.S.C. §437c, 2 U.S.C §437(g). Plaintiff has standing to bring suit

Plaintiff filed the within action on or about August 21, 2008 against Defendants
Seeking Declaratory and Injunctive Relief, declaring Obama an illegal alien and/or only a
“naturalized” citizen ineligible to serve as President of the United States and enjoining
the DNC and FEC from placing Obama’s name on the ballot and prohibiting Obama
From further campaigning to be elected as President of the
Ineligible to hold.
Plaintiff faxed a copy of the complaint to Obama, the DNC and FEC on August
22, 2008 prior to the hearing on the TRO before this Honorable Court. Defendants were
Further served by personal service on September 4, 2008. Neither the DNC nor Obama
Have supplied any type of proof of Obama’s citizenship status and/or eligibility to serve
As President of the
Motion to Dismiss.
Plaintiff has asked for a simple resolution. Plaintiff has asked that Obama supply
a genuine certified copy of his original long version “vault” Birth Certificate and a
certified copy of his Oath of Allegiance and/or Certificate of Citizenship. If in fact
Obama can prove his “natural born” citizenship status, which he cannot, then he has not
Been prejudiced in anyway, but instead Plaintiff has been protected and his civil rights
Secured. However, if Obama is unable to supply said documentation, then he needs to
Withdrawal his candidacy, again which will eliminate Plaintiff’s deprivations and instill
Plaintiff’s constitutionally protected safeguards and rights.
There is absolutely no other way for Plaintiff to ensure his constitutionally
Protected rights. The only option Plaintiff had was to bring this action. This is the first
Time in American History a “naturalized” citizen and/or illegal alien have been allowed to
Campaign for the Office of President of the
to establish or determine the legal status of our Presidential Candidates, whether
Republican and/or Democratic. The FEC and DNC have refused to verify and furnish
Plaintiff with Obama’s eligibility or lack thereof. Plaintiff has standing to challenge any
Person citizenship and/or nationality status pursuant to statute, 8
The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) does not perform background checks
And/or verify their eligibility on our Candidates to hold Office. According to the FBI,
once a candidate is voted into Office of Congress, they are members of Congress and
Therefore they are given a Secret Clearance, again, without any type of background check
And/or verification processes performed.
Plaintiff, as well as other Democratic voters have and are suffering the total loss
of confidence in the DNC primary process because of the massive cheating and
Skewering of rules to make an illegitimate ineligible candidate the nominee in violation
Of DNC rules and the Constitution, robbing voters of their voices and votes. Plaintiff and
millions of other Democratic voters have lost all trust in the integrity of the FEC and
Democratic Party leaders by the total failure of the DNC to perform the most basic of
Functions by insisting any candidates produce basic documents in vetting their eligibility,
especially after there were repeated requests demanding Obama's eligibility be proven
With certified legitimate documents which had not been forged. This failure to perform
Even the most basic of due diligence has shattered Plaintiff's faith, along with millions of
Democratic voters, in the Democratic system.
Plaintiff has been damaged financially for all monies donated, billable hours
spent supporting the Democratic candidates, taxes paid by Plaintiff which went to the
Secret Service for their protection of Obama for the past twenty (20) months and for the
financial costs and time expended of this litigation, when Defendants could have very
easily investigated, verified and obtained proof of Obama's eligibility to serve as
President of the
Plaintiff has suffered damage to his reputation and discrimination as a result of
Attempting to protect his rights and verify the eligibility of Obama to serve as President
For bringing forward this lawsuit against Obama. Plaintiff is not a racist and is a paid
Life Member of the NAACP. Obama himself stated to a crowd of his supporters, “I
Need you to go out and talk to your friends and talk to your neighbors. I want you to
Talk to them whether they are independent or whether they are Republican. I want you
To argue with them and get in their face", see the newspaper article published in the San
Francisco Gate, by Kathleen Hennessey, Associated Press Writer, on September 17,
2008, attached as EXHIBIT "5". Obama is promoting attacks on non-supporters,
Which is creating racial tension and violence in our communities?
Plaintiff has attempted to obtain the verification and proof requested herein by
Way of requests, filing this action, Admissions and Request for Production of Documents
served upon Defendants September 15, 2008 and by Subpoenas served upon agencies
who could supply the documentation to prove Obama’s citizenship status. To date,
Plaintiff has not received anything. Plaintiff has received two (2) letters from agencies
that were served with subpoenas claiming they need Obama’s signatures to comply
and/or the confidentiality of the documents were protected from disclosure to third
Parties under 5
B. THIS HONORABLE COURT HAS SUBJECT MATTER
JURISDICTION AS PLAINTIFF HAS STANDING TO BRING THE WITHIN
The DNC and Obama have filed a Motion to Dismiss based on Federal Rules of
Civil Procedure, Rule 12(b)(1), claiming this Court does not have subject matter
Jurisdiction as Plaintiff lacks standing. This claim is inaccurate, as this Court does have
Subject matter jurisdiction and has the inherent power to hear this case.
However, Plaintiff requests the opportunity to amend his Complaint.
This case is easily distinguishable from Hollander v. McCain, 2008 U.S. Dist.
LEXIS 56729 (D.N.H. 2008), where the Court held that the Plaintiff did not have
Standing based on the alleged harm he would suffer should McCain be elected President
Despite his alleged lack of eligibility under the natural born citizenship clause, Art. II, §
1, cl. 4.
The factors used in the Court's decision were that: (1) McCain's candidacy for the
Presidency, whatever his eligibility, was "hardly a restriction on voters' rights" because it
In no way prevented them from voting for somebody else in the primary election; and (2)
The harm claimed "standing alone, would adversely affect only the generalized interest of
All citizens in constitutional governance” (the Court citing Schlesinger v. Reservists
Committee to Stop the War, 418
Personal injury fairly traceable to the Defendant's allegedly unlawful conduct" (the Court
Cited Allen v. Wright, 468 U.S. 737(1984) at 751; and (4) McCain was "unquestionably
An American citizen."
In this case, (1) Obama's candidacy for the presidency in the general election as
Opposed to the primary elections prevents citizens from voting for Hillary Clinton despite
her immense popularity; (2) the harm Plaintiff suffered is particular to him because he
has been denied the constitutional right to vote for an eligible candidate; (3) Plaintiff's
claims are traceable to the Defendants' unlawful behavior in failing to disclose
Information to which voters are entitled; and (4) Defendants have failed to show that Mr.
Obama is "unquestionably an American citizen."
Therefore, the factors used in Hollander v. McCain clearly favor Plaintiff’s
1. Plaintiff has Standing pursuant to 5
Plaintiff has attempted to obtain the appropriate documents to prove Obama’s
Citizenship status or lack thereof. The DNC and the FEC have completely ignored the
Complaints and requests. In addition, Plaintiff has attempted to secure documents from
other locations, which are required to turn the documents over pursuant to FOIA,
However, once again has been refused. The DNC and FEC have failed to act in their
Official position and take the steps necessary to turn over the documents and institute a
Proper investigation to protect Plaintiff.
“A person suffering legal wrong because of agency action, or adversely affected
or aggrieved by agency action within the meaning of a relevant statute, is entitled to
Judicial review thereof. An action in a court of the
money damages and stating a claim that an agency or an officer or employee thereof
Acted or failed to act in an official capacity or under color of legal authority shall not be
Dismissed nor relief therein be denied on the ground that it is against the
Defendant in any such action, and a judgment or decree may be entered against the United
States: Provided, that any mandatory or injunctive decree shall specify the Federal officer
Or officers (by name or by title), and their successors in office, personally responsible for
Compliance. Nothing herein
(1) “affects other limitations on judicial review or the power or duty of the
Court to dismiss any action or deny relief on any other appropriate legal or
Equitable ground; or
(2) Confers authority to grant relief if any other statute that grants consent to
Suit expressly or impliedly forbids the relief which is sought.”
The FEC and the DNC have failed to take any action into the investigation of
Obama, his fraudulent campaigning scheme which he has obtained over $400 Million
Dollars, knowing he is not a U.S. Citizen.
2. Plaintiff has Standing pursuant to FEC v. Akins, 524
Plaintiff has attempted to obtain the appropriate documents to prove Obama’s
citizenship status, or lack there of and has requested investigation into the eligibility
Status of Obama. The DNC and the FEC have completely ignored the complaints and
(b) Administration, enforcement, and formulation of policy; exclusive
Jurisdiction of civil enforcement; Congressional authorities or functions
With respect to elections for Federal office
(1) The Commission shall administer, seek to obtain compliance
With, and formulate policy with respect to, this Act and chapter
95 and chapter 96 of title 26. The Commission shall have
Exclusive jurisdiction with respect to the civil enforcement of
(2) Nothing in this Act shall be construed to limit, restrict, or
Diminish any investigatory, informational, oversight,
Supervisory, or disciplinary authority or function of the
Congress or any committee of the Congress with respect to
Elections for Federal office.
2 United States Code § 437d. Powers of Commission states in pertinent part:
(a) Specific authorities
The Commission has the power—
(1) To require by special or general orders, any person to submit, under oath,
Such written reports and answers to questions as the Commission may
(3) To require by subpoena, signed by the chairman or the vice chairman, the
attendance and testimony of witnesses and the production of all
Documentary evidence relating to the execution of its duties;
(4) In any proceeding or investigation, to order testimony to be taken by

Testimony and the production of evidence in the same manner as

(9) To conduct investigations and hearings expeditiously, to encourage
Voluntary compliance, and to report apparent violations to the appropriate
Law enforcement authorities.
Plaintiff is a registered voter who has standing to seek Declaratory and Injunctive
Relief against the FEC, DNC and Obama pursuant to 5 U.S.C. §702. Plaintiff has a right,
Which is secured to him by our laws and the United States Constitution, for verification?
Of our Presidential Nominee’s eligibility to serve as President of the
To the elections. Plaintiff as well as other Democratic individuals submitted complaints
to the DNC and the FEC, requesting verification of Obama’s citizenship status and
Eligibility to serve as President of the
Investigate Obama’s citizenship status, the fact Obama has refused to prove his eligibility
And obtained in excess of Four Hundred ($400) Million Dollars in Campaign Funds, is
Based on a fraudulent scheme if Obama is unable to prove his “natural born” citizenship
Status, 2 U.S.C. §437(g). The FEC is responsible for the administration, enforcement;
Exclusive jurisdiction of civil enforcement; Congressional authorities or functions with
Respect to elections for Federal office, 2 U.S.C. §437c (b). (Emphasis added)
Defendants’ refusals to perform said inquiry and provide proof of our Democratic
Presidential candidate’s eligibility to serve as President of the United States is in
violation of the very laws stated for Plaintiff and other’s citizens of the United States.
Obama, knowing he is not an eligible candidate to serve as President of the
Began campaigning for the Presidential seat. Obama’s campaign has brought in over
Four Hundred ($400) Million Dollars in donations based on a fraudulent campaign,
which has been allowed by the Defendants, the FEC and DNC. Plaintiff and other
democratic citizens brought the issues to the attention of the DNC and the (FEC) who
Have refused to take any action to protect Plaintiff and/or all other democratic citizens,
Which is in violation of the United States Laws outlined above? Plaintiff has demanded
Proof of Obama’s eligibility, however to no avail. The DNC and the FEC have a duty to
Investigate the issue and disclose the information ensuring Obama is eligible to campaign
and serve as President of the United States, to Plaintiff and the public, who are being
harmed by the fraudulent conduct of Obama, a Presidential Candidate and the DNC’s
When Congress confers standing on litigants, the generalized grievance
Constriction does not apply. Congress confers standing on any individual who has been
aggrieved by the denial of information required to be furnished pursuant to Statute. It
Matters not that most people are or will be entitled and suffer a “generalized grievance”,
The statutory entitlement is sufficient. FEC v. Akins, 524
FEC v. Akins, 524 U.S. 11 (1998), held, in pertinent part:
“1. Respondents, as voters seeking information to which they believe FECA
entitles them, have standing to challenge the FEC’s decision not to bring an
Enforcement action. Pp. 6-14………
(b) Respondents also satisfy constitutional standing requirements. Their
Inability to obtain information that, they claim, FECA requires AIPAC to make
public meets the genuine "injury in fact" requirement that helps assure that the
Court will adjudicate "[a] concrete, living contest between adversaries." Coleman
v. Miller, 307
shared does not deprive Congress of constitutional power to authorize its
Vindication in the federal courts where the harm is concrete. See Public Citizen V.
Department of Justice, 491
directly related to voting, the most basic of political rights, is sufficiently
Concrete. Respondents have also satisfied the remaining two constitutional
standing requirements: The harm asserted is "fairly traceable" to the FEC's
decision not to issue its complaint and the courts in this case can "redress" that
Injury. Pp. 8-14.
FEC v. Akins, 524 U.S. 11 (1998), (Opinion. at p. 14) the Court stated:
“As commonly understood, the Federal Election Campaign Act seeks to remedy
Any actual or perceived corruption of the political process in several important ways.”
FEC v. Akins, 524 U.S. 11 (1998), (Opinion. at p. 20) the Court stated:
“Given the language of the statute and the nature of the injury, we conclude that
Congress, intending to protect voters such as respondents from suffering the kind of
injury here at issue, intended to authorize this kind of suit. Consequently, respondents
Satisfy "prudential" standing requirements. Cf. Raines v. Byrd, 521
FEC v. Akins, 524 U.S. 11 (1998), (Opinion at p.21) the Court stated:
“Indeed, this Court has previously held that a plaintiff suffers an "injury in fact"
When the plaintiff fails to obtain information which must be publicly disclosed pursuant
To a statute. Public Citizen v. Department of Justice, 491

"constitutes a sufficiently distinct injury to provide standing to sue"). See also Havens

Plaintiff has suffered an informational injury as a voter and member of the public;
The lack of information on Mr. Obama's citizenship, caused by the FEC's action, limited
the information available to him as a voter and impaired his ability to influence and
Inform the public and policymakers. If a party is denied information that will help it in
Making a voting decision that party is obviously injured in fact. In Akins, the court noted
that: "[a] voter deprived of useful information at the time he or she votes suffers a
particularized injury in some respects unique to him or herself just as a government
Contractor, allegedly wrongfully deprived of information to be made available at the time
Bids are due, would suffer a particularized injury even if all other bidders also suffered an

President, suffered the same injury that does not take away from the individual injury that

Plaintiff has the right to secure equitable relief under 28 U.S.C. 1343(a) (3) and

Congress has conferred upon federal courts jurisdiction to decide federal

Central Bank of
The issues presented in Plaintiff’s complaint clearly arise under the Constitution
And Laws of the
There are no laws which specifically delegate whose responsibility it is to carry
the burden of verifying the eligibility of a President. The question is who has the
Constitutional authority to resolve disputes regarding presidential candidates’ eligibility?
Our Constitution and laws are in fact, silent on how questions of presidential candidates’
Eligibility is resolved. The Constitution or our laws do not contain provisions on who is
to make determinations of the compliance of the presidential candidate with Article II,
much less that they have exclusive ability to do so. The closest we have is 2 U.S.C.
§437c, if in fact illegal or fraudulent campaigning is involved.
Moreover, there are absolutely no statutes or laws which dictates how a person,
such as Plaintiff, are to demand proof of our Presidential candidates eligibility in order
For Plaintiff to be able to form a proper decision on who to cast his vote for. Each entity
contacted, whether Governmental or State has refused such duties, including the DNC
And FEC. Again, the closest we have is 2 U.S.C. §437c, if in fact illegal or fraudulent
Campaigning is involved.
This is the first time in History these Federal questions have been presented.
There is not any statutory reference or case law pertaining to such questions.
The Constitution guarantees forms of redress through our Court systems. This
Very Court has the inherent power to hear and resolve the Federal questions presented.
The Constitution of the
States. It provides the framework for the organization of the United States Government.
For the aforementioned reasons, Plaintiff respectfully requests this Honorable
Court to deny Defendants Motion to Dismiss, Order immediate discovery, including but
not limited to: 1) A certified copy of Obama’s “vault” (original long version) Birth
Certificate; and (2) A certified copy of Obama’s Certificate of Citizenship; and (3) A
certified copy of the Oath of Allegiance taken by Obama after attaining the age of
Majority and allow Plaintiff to amend his Complaint.
C. PLAINTIFF HAS PLED CAUSES OF ACTION WHERE RELIEF
CAN BE GRANTED.
Defendants claim Plaintiff has failed to state claim in which federal relief can be
Granted. Plaintiff’s Complaint under Counts 1, 2 and 3 which clearly assert Obama was
born in Mombasa, Kenya and his mother was not old enough and did not meet the
Residency requirements pursuant to The Nationality Act of 1940, revised June 1952 and
§301(a) (7) of the INA states the
Order to give Obama “natural born” citizenship status in the
In order to determine Obama’s citizenship status, the Court must look to the
applicable law in effect at the time of Obama’s birth. Runnett v. Shultz,

Additionally, Obama’s mother relocated Obama in or about 1967, when Obama

Indonesian Citizen. At that time,

Plaintiff is informed, believes and thereon alleges Obama was adopted by his
Indonesian stepfather. Obama was registered in a public school
in Jakarta, Indonesia under the name of Barry Soetoro, showing his citizenship as
Indonesian. The school registration is attached as EXHIBIT “

school obtained verification from the Government of the child’s name and citizenship

Indonesia Constitution, Article 2 states: “on the condition of ratification of the
Adoption by the District Court: “The law stipulates that children of mixed couples
Automatically assume their father’s citizenship, and a divorced wife cannot take custody
Of her children because they have different citizenship.”
Since Obama’s birth was legally acknowledged by Lolo Soetoro, an Indonesian
Citizen, and/or Obama was adopted by Lolo Soetoro, which the evidence attached hereto
Supports, Obama became an Indonesian citizen and bear the status as an

The Indonesian citizenship law was designed to prevent apatride (stateless) or bipatride

Neither apatride nor bipatride citizenship.

American parent are relevant, the Indonesian Law takes precedence under The Master
Nationality Rule of Article 4 of the Hague Convention of 1930. The

Conventions are applied by the United States and this has been in effect since before
1930. (Memorandum on Nationality, including Statelessness: Document A/CN.4/67,
prepared by Ivan S Kerno, International Law Commission, United Nations General
Assembly, 6th April 1953.) Thus, Obama is not a “natural born” citizen and my not even

The Federal Rules of Civil Procedure require notice pleading, not fact pleading,
So to withstand a Rule 12(b) (6) motion, the Plaintiff “need only make out a claim upon
Which relief can be granted? If more facts are necessary to resolve or clarify the disputed
issues, the parties may avail themselves of the civil discovery mechanisms under the
Federal Rules”. Alston v. Parker,

As this Court is aware, in deciding a Motion to Dismiss pursuant to Federal Rules
Of Civil Procedure 12(b) (6), the Court accepts the factual allegations of the Complaint as
true and draws all reasonable inferences therefore in favor of the Plaintiff. Armstrong

Cir. 1999), Morse v.
In making a determination, the Court must construe the pleading in the light most
Favorable to the non-moving party. Budinsky v.
Plaintiff brought this action prior to the Democratic National Committee in
attempts to have Obama removed from the ballot if he was found to be ineligible.
Unfortunately, Obama was nominated as the Democratic Nominee to run and serve for

the United States as he is not a “natural born” citizen pursuant to the United States
Constitution, Article II, Section I and Injunctive Relief removing Obama from the ballot
And stopping all of his campaign efforts to secure the Office of the Presidency.
For the aforementioned reasons, Plaintiff respectfully requests this Honorable
Court to deny Defendants Motion to Dismiss, order immediate discovery, including but
not limited to: 1) a certified copy of Obama’s “vault” (original long version) Birth
Certificate; and (2) a certified copy of Obama’s Certificate of Citizenship; and (3) a
Certified copy of the Oath of Allegiance taken by Obama taken at the age of majority and
Allow Plaintiff to amend his Complaint.
Plaintiff served discovery in way of Admissions and Request for Production of
Documents, on Defendants on September 15, 2008 and has attempted to obtain
Verification of Obama’s eligibility through Subpoenas to the Government entities and the
The Defendants and two (2) of the locations, which subpoenas were served upon, refused
To honor the subpoena.
For the above aforementioned reasons, Plaintiff respectfully request Defendants

including but not limited to: 1) a certified copy of Obama’s “vault” (original long
