The nutty nobot blog, Repubx.com, reports an odd story. It says that Phil Berg has subpoenaed the Kenyan Ambassador for Obama’s birth certificate. Repubx even has pictures of the HANDWRITTEN subpoena. (What’s wrong Phil, you have to hock your typewriter?)
I’m not a lawyer (I did finally learn that there is no “u” in attorney), but I thought Berg’s cases were filed in Pennsylvania. So why is this subpoena coming out of California? Did the Third Circuit run out of blank subpoena forms? Given that Berg knows more lawyering than certain other nobot lawyers, maybe this is actually right.
But Phil, Phil, Phil. You can’t subpoena a foreign ambassador! It is just not done. Why didn’t you subpoena the North Koreans for their nuclear plans — get something USEFUL. It won’t work. You need one of those rogatory thingies.
So what’s going to happen (pick one)?
- The ambassador will ignore the subpoena (most likely)
- The ambassador’s legal counsel will ask the court to quash the subpoena (which they will)
- The ambassador will reply to the subpoena that President Obama was not born in Kenya and that there is no birth certificate, which will convince the birthers that Obama was born in Kenya–as evidenced by the coverup.
I wonder if this isn’t a hoax. It’s too nutty to be true. And who is this “Private Attorney General” clown Paul Mitchell?
