Is the U.S. now ruled by Military Dictatorship?

WHAT AUTHORITY DO THE ARMY COMMANDERS TRULY HAVE OVER TERRY LAKIN?

by Sharon Rondeau

Is this book, published in 1949, a "novel" or "the truth?"

(Dec. 15, 2010) — In a move reminiscent of George Orwell’s 1984, Lt. Col. Terrence Lakin has pleaded guilty to “four specifications of refusing to obey lawful orders” during a hearing held on December 14 at Ft. Meade, MD.

On March 30, 2010, Lakin had announced his refusal to obey orders on the grounds that Obama might not be a “natural born Citizen” as required by the U.S. Constitution to serve as President and Commander-in-Chief of the military.  However, in an apparent contradiction, Lakin or his surrogates have referred to Obama as the “President.”

In its original press release, the Safeguard Our Constitution website supporting Lakin had announced that “Mr. Obama’s continuing refusal to release his original 1961 birth certificate has brought Lt. Col. Lakin to the point where he feels his orders are unlawful, and thus MUST be disobeyed.”  The foundation prominently asked, and is still asking, for donations to support Lt. Col. Lakin’s cause.

An earlier statement on the website reads:

At the very least, the administration has wasted a huge amount of the nation’s time. At worst, Obama is in fact not eligible to be President. Would that be uncomfortable? Would it be inconvenient? Would it be problematic? Of course. But this nation has survived many traumatic events in its past and would survive this. The Constitution is the supreme law of the land- and it must be upheld.

Every single avenue of redress:  the courts, the legislative branch, and the executive branch – and by extension, the U.S. military – have been closed to We the People.  What does that mean for the U.S. Constitution?

Do we now have a pure dictatorship?

If Obama, who appears at the top of the military chain of command along with Defense Secretary Robert Gates, is not eligible to occupy the position of commander-in-chief, then how is it that Lakin today “stood before Judge Lind and over and over told her that he was wrong to have disobeyed his orders, which were lawful”?

Does two plus two make five?  Are there any “hard facts” anymore, or are facts constantly being altered to protect Big Brother?

Does “The Truth Matters” now mean that War is Peace, Freedom is Slavery, and Ignorance is Strength?

Smith!’ screamed the shrewish voice from the telescreen. ‘6079 Smith W.! Yes, you! Bend lower, please! You can do better than that. You’re not trying. Lower, please! That’s better, comrade. Now stand at ease, the whole squad, and watch me.’

A sudden hot sweat had broken out all over Winston’s body. His face remained completely inscrutable. Never show dismay! Never show resentment! A single flicker of the eyes could give you away. He stood watching while the instructress raised her arms above her head and—one could not say gracefully, but with remarkable neatness and efficiency—bent over and tucked the first joint of her fingers under her toes.

There, comrades! That’s how I want to see you doing it. Watch me again. I’m thirty-nine and I’ve had four children. Now look.’ She bent over again. ‘You see my knees aren’t bent. You can all do it if you want to,’ she added as she straightened herself up. ‘Anyone under forty-five is perfectly capable of touching his toes. We don’t all have the privilege of fighting in the front line, but at least we can all keep fit. Remember our boys on the Malabar front! And the sailors in the Floating Fortresses! Just think what they have to put up with. Now try again. That’s better, comrade, that’s much better,’ she added encouragingly as Winston, with a violent lunge, succeeded in touching his toes with knees unbent, for the first time in several years.

Is history being rewritten in front of our eyes?

What kind of threat did Col. Denise Lind pose to Lt. Col. Terrence Lakin?  If Obama is a fraud, which the military must know, why did Lakin plead guilty?  Of what is he guilty if Obama is a fraud?  How could he be guilty?

Was there any authority to hold a court-martial without a legitimate commander-in-chief?  Why did Attorney Neal Puckett apparently fail to bring that up at the hearing?  If there was no authority, why did it even commence?

What changed between March 30, 2010 and December 14, 2010?  How much does anyone “need” attorneys like these?  Are they all about advising their clients to take plea deals rather than uncovering the truth?  What do they know of the U.S. Constitution and its provisions for a legitimate commander-in-chief?  Was Puckett’s defense of Lakin based on constitutional principles or something else, like money?

Almost unconsciously he traced with his finger in the dust on the table:

2 + 2 = 5

‘They can’t get inside you,’ she had said. But they could get inside you. ‘What happens to you here is for ever,’ O’Brien had said. That was a true word. There were things, your own acts, from which you could never recover. Something was killed in your breast: burnt out, cauterized out.

At what point did Lakin decide that he was guilty for asking a question about the alleged commander-in-chief’s qualifications?  What about “The ‘superior officer‘ must be one authorized to give the order; else indeed his command would not be a lawful one”?

And why is Lakin now reduced to “pleading for mercy?”

He accepted everything. The past was alterable. The past never had been altered. Oceania was at war with Eastasia. Oceania had always been at war with Eastasia. Jones, Aaronson, and Rutherford were guilty of the crimes they were charged with. He had never seen the photograph that disproved their guilt. It had never existed, he had invented it. He remembered remembering contrary things, but those were false memories, products of selfdeception. How easy it all was! Only surrender, and everything else followed. It was like swimming against a current that swept you backwards however hard you struggled, and then suddenly deciding to turn round and go with the current instead of opposing it. Nothing had changed except your own attitude: the predestined thing happened in any case. He hardly knew why he had ever rebelled. Everything was easy, except——!

Have “collusion, conspiracy and cover-up” perpetrated by military officers been maintained as the truth, particularly today?

Was the verdict already decided in Lakin’s case?

The President has the authority to maintain the Uniform Code of Military Justice over the U.S. military, including the process of courts-martial.  Even civilians working with the Armed Forces are subject to the UCMJ.

But what if there is no lawful president to command the Armed Forces?

Now that we have no Constitution, is this what is coming?

There were times when his nerve so forsook him that he began shouting for mercy even before the beating began, when the mere sight of a fist drawn back for a blow was enough to make him pour forth a confession of real and imaginary crimes.

Or is it happening already?

Are we mindless, spineless, useless idiots who have been brainwashed into being afraid of our government and letting it run roughshod over us? Or do we stand up to tyranny and physical abuse, even while falsely imprisoned?

Is the Constitution nothing but a cast-off relic which our entire government has decided is obsolete so that it can control our every movement?

He gazed up at the enormous face. Forty years it had taken him to learn what kind of smile was hidden beneath the dark moustache. O cruel, needless misunderstanding! O stubborn, self-willed exile from the loving breast! Two gin-scented tears trickled down the sides of his nose. But it was all right, everything was all right, the struggle was finished. He had won the victory over himself. He loved Big Brother.

    > You do not have a science background do you Dan, nor a very good grasp on reality?

    JP, I do have a master’s degree in maths, so you’re barking up the wrong tree if you’re trying to “educate” me on mathematics.

    > There are no merits to your “arguments” that are worth addressing

    You mean, my arguments why, contrary to what you claim, capitalization in the Constitution does not mean what you want it to mean? You’re “evading the issue” because it “could prove embarrassing” to you? Hm, doesn’t that sound familiar?

    Your pseudo-scientific ramblings do not withstand real scientific scrutiny, that is why you are unable and unwilling to properly defend them.

    Please, once again, what special meaning does the capitalization of “thing”, “year” or “seventeenth” have in the Constitution? Until you can answer that, all your bla-bla about the alleged difference between “citizen” and “Citizen” are simply delusional.

    (As an aside, I find it funny you address me by name a whooping 14 times in your short diatribe. This reminds me of the rhetoric device some shady salesmen apply when trying to lull in or lecture their victims. Patronizing doesn’t work for me. If that is your “scientific” approach, I may just as well doubt you have any scientific degree whatsoever.)

    > if as some suggest that obama gives him some kind of pardon

    Would Lakin accept a pardon from a usurper in the White House who cannot legally pardon him?

  3. Jedi Pauly   Thursday, December 16, 2010 at 5:51 PM

    To Dan the Doubter of Natural Reality;

    “You are mixing up things again. “2+2=4″ is only correct because man (not Nature or God) defined what “2″, “4″, “+” and “=” are supposed to mean. Had mankind chosen another symbol for the number four, e.g. “5″, then “2+2=5″ would be correct.”

    Wrong Dan. It is you that are severely and seriously “mixed up”. You sure are in need of education in mathematics and on how to perceive reality. Man only defined the symbols, not the natural principles that are already defined by nature and natural laws alone, that the symbols are meant to convey. Man just invents the symbols and then assigns them to the natural principles that already exist. You do not have a science background do you Dan, nor a very good grasp on reality?

    For example Dan, the concept that things can be combined is a function of natural reality that mankind just discovers and not invents. Then man just invents a symbol like “+” to communicate the idea of the natural combination of items. The fact that distinct things can be combined into groupings already is a natural reality that exists in nature and is just waiting for man to discover. You have a very strange warped view of reality in my view, Dan. The choice of the symbol does not affect the reality that the symbol is meant to relate, Dan. The reality must be assigned to the symbols chosen or else the concepts being conveyed are meaningless gibberish, Dan, kind of like everything you say.

    I would suggest you leave the math education to those of us with science degrees Dan.

    There are no merits to your “arguments” that are worth addressing, Dan. Just like your incoherent and wrong ramblings regarding mathematics your “arguments” are baseless figments of your imagination and ego that don’t amount to anything that is valid or rational. That is why you can not see the self evident truth of nature that Sovereign Political Rights are Natural Rights that were discovered to exist in Nature and declared in the Declaration of Independence to belong to all human beings and that these Natural Political Rights to claim a Sovereign political status is inherited from a Sovereign citizen father. These are not invented concepts of mankind Dan, they are declared to be natural reality that exists in nature as a function of Natural Laws that man just discovered to be true (“we hold these truths to be self-evident”) that man just then invents words to describe. Just like the math example of yours that I have corrected you on, Dan.

    I would suggest that you go to school and get some education in science and math Dan, and also take a law course and learn about Natural Law. Better yet Dan, why don’t you just search the term Natural Law and research how it is defined to be a SCIENCE based on objective observations of Nature, Dan.

    Troy. It would seem that you fail to realize the total ramifications of the fact that we now live under tyranny and there is no rule of law, just cowardly acts of treason by all those who’s responsibility it is to uphold the Law.

    You have not considered the possibility that Col. Lakin can be right on the one hand, but he went about it all wrong and is in fact guilty of the charges because he screwed up in his conduct with how he failed to use the proper channels and rules of the military and law to conduct his resistance to unlawful actions by his superiors.

    We all know that the fix was in and the court was a bogus sham without lawful process and now Col. Lakin is throwing himself on the mercy of the court to help lesson the severity of the punishment. What else is there for a slave to do but beg his master for leniency?

    Lakin should have obeyed his orders, in my opinion, and just informed his superiors that he was being injured by them as a result because the military was voiding the terms of his contract with the government which was originally that Col. Lakin would enter into voluntary servitude to the government and now his officers who were giving him orders were forcing Lakin into Involuntary Servitude which is a federal crime due to Obama not meeting Article II requirements. He could then level charges on his superiors and they could be the ones facing a court marshal instead of Lakin. I think he still could do this. Also, Lakin would have civil recourse through the courts to sue the government for breach of contract and his commission as an officer of the U.S. military.

    Lakin does not have the personal authority to just take it on himself to disobey a direct order from a superior officer who is a lawful member of government in any circumstance just because O is not legit. For example, if an officer ordered Lakin to his office to discuss his orders that come from the President, then he must report to the office to discuss it. That would be the time to inform the superior officer what he was engaged in was criminal and a breach of Lakin’s Constitutional Rights and contractual rights and that if Lakin were forced to obey he would as to not be guilty of disobeying orders, but he will have to level criminal charges and Treason charges against his superiors and seek redress for injury in a military and or civilian court. He could then apologize and say that this is Obama’s fault, nothing personal, and then Col. Lakin would not be doing anything that he can be court marshaled for. He failed to use the system against itself as is his right and is the proper avenue of resistance that is lawfully provided for to him that he just did not avail himself of. I think he was not getting good advise on how to conduct himself in this matter.

    Exactly Durus. I am glad you are helping me with this good example of yours. I am glad to see that others are able of perceiving the obvious and I am not the only one left in the world who understands the concept of natural sovereign political rights that are inherited from our sovereign citizen fathers as is stated in the Declaration of Independence and is just an objective observed fact of nature not my opinion.

    “And if all others accepted the lie which the Party imposed- if all records told the same tale- then the lie passed into history and became truth. ‘Who controls the past’ ran the Party slogan, ‘controls the future: who controls the present controls the past”.
    1984-Book 1, Chapt. 3
    “The truth will set you free. But first it will make you miserable”.- James A. Garfield-
    Thanks for telling the truth, Sharon. We can’t judge Terry Lakin without asking how we would fare under the same circumstances. This situation didn’t happen overnight and it won’t change as quickly either. We need to keep speaking what we know to be true and support each other with kindness and compassion and, whatever you do…. DON”T LET THE B******* GET YOU DOWN!!

  7. TZ   Wednesday, December 15, 2010 at 10:06 PM

    Lt Col Lakin got shafted by the higher up’s in the military command… With Judge Lind NOT allowing him to defend himself is injustice & plain wrong… now IF they try to make an example out of him… If he goes to prison… “Once he gets out he should run for office as a congressman or senator… he is a true hero”. You heard it here first…. It will also help him to get a lost pension should they also take that from him… talk about being above the law… NO ONE should not even the President of the USA…

    Lastly, if as some suggest that obama gives him some kind of pardon or just a slap on the wrist… then it will prove obama’s guilt beyond a shadow of a doubt. One day the truth will come out & those responsible MUST pay with stiff prison time.

  8. Carlyle   Wednesday, December 15, 2010 at 9:10 PM

    I agree. Early this AM I made a prediction over at Citizen Wells that:

    1. He would be found guilty of all or most charges.

    2. He would get the lightest sentence possible – maybe even a slap on the wrist and let him walk. Reinstate and go back to work. The b-stards on high DO NOT want a martyr. They want him gone out of their hair.

    Brilliant insight Mr. ED: The presidential pardon may be the best way to go. EVERYBODY comes out smelling like roses. They are quite evil enough to think like that!.

  9. rick   Wednesday, December 15, 2010 at 9:03 PM

    though lt. col. lakin is the ONLY american to heed the oath he swore to, i never liked how he approached his defense or his legal team. that said, our military leadership is our enemy! they meekly & passively accept an illegal alien as their commander in chief, knowingly. the magnitude of this crime is overwhelming but, the conga line at the gallows will be something to see. our national “thats it!” moment is fast approaching, so i say, the sooner, the better.

  10. tuxkabin   Wednesday, December 15, 2010 at 8:31 PM

    I believe Lakin would have been better off kicking his commanders a**, before they shot him. Now he has nothing but bad luck. You really have to ask yourself where are these brave men, where the hell did they all go off to? It was not a war, so it must have been to the bank; no, maybe they all just went and put on a few more panties as panty weights have always done. My property is posted; is yours? The old Indian once said, “Every day is a good day to die; it only matters how you die that really matters.” Will it be bed pans as so many do or will it be with honor? Lincoln did this to America and the Yankees have kept up the fight all these years. Hope you enjoy it now, see what you have done by breaking the South, how does it feel to also now lose it all? Don’t you ever let history forget who put Obama in office; it was not the South. The truth can always hurt a bit. Lakin is history and he gave at the end. What did you expect, another hero?
    Tuxkabin has spoken.

  11. Outraged   Wednesday, December 15, 2010 at 7:12 PM

    I don’t know how much to believe that commie Col. Sullivan, but according to him, Lakin did speak during sentencing. He said if he had it to do over again, he’d deploy, and would deploy tomorrow if he could. He supposedly was in tears. I can’t believe any Col. in the US Army would cry in public to save his own hide. That’s just despicable. Walt Fitzpatrick didn’t cry at his trial, or EVER. He’s rotting in the Monroe County Dungeon and he’s not crying.

  12. TheGoodRevDr   Wednesday, December 15, 2010 at 7:06 PM

    Surrendering to the trial is always a bad idea.

  13. Dan Cutulla   Wednesday, December 15, 2010 at 6:57 PM

    > 2+2=4 is a natural fact of reality

    You are mixing up things again. “2+2=4” is only correct because man (not Nature or God) defined what “2”, “4”, “+” and “=” are supposed to mean. Had mankind chosen another symbol for the number four, e.g. “5”, then “2+2=5” would be correct.
    So just like your so-called “natural law” as applied by you to the NBC definition, this is not a “natural” fact but a scientific fact following by deduction from the (man-made) definitions.

    It is appalling that you can’t even get that one right, yet insist your incoherent ramblings have anything remotely to do with science.

    It is also telling that you keep repeating the same nonsense on any thread here, without even going to the merits of my counter-arguments, e.g. with regard to your narrow-minded interpretation of capitalization.

  14. Eddie Diamond   Wednesday, December 15, 2010 at 6:55 PM

    This is a huge set-up. I have some buds down in Pendleton- big swarthy Marines- that have heard that Oblama-rama is going to swoop down and pardon Lakin. Yeah, let him walk. He may even show Lakin his BC personally or a good forgery to try to quiet this great American….should be interesting to see how it plays out. I don’t know if Obama will also get Manning off the hook. What did he use, a false ID to get into the hearing? E.D.

  15. Jedi Pauly   Wednesday, December 15, 2010 at 6:24 PM

    Well said. That is what I keep telling people. 2+2=4 is a natural fact of reality. Just like the natural fact of reality that you must have a citizen father so you will inherit a natural sovereign political authority to be President because we don’t inherit the recognition of natural sovereign political rights from soil or our mothers. It was recognized and declared in the Declaration of Independence that Sovereign Political Rights are Natural Rights that are naturally inherited and insured by males (father). This is just a fact of nature. It is also a fact of nature that Article II requires one to repatriate himself and live in the U.S. for 14 years as a U.S. citizen so that you will not have any foreign loyalties and you will reestablish your allegiance and loyalty to the U.S. This is why, as a function of natural reality and natural law and logic and fact, that a mother’s citizenship and your place of birth are irrelevant for Article II purposes.

  16. Jedi Pauly   Wednesday, December 15, 2010 at 5:26 PM

    Sorry Troy but you are way wrong and way off base. You are the only one espousing opinions because It is only your opinion that I am espousing an opinion. In fact, I am just describing a factual objective observation of nature that was also realized and discovered in 1776 and written into the Declaration of Independence that Sovereign Political Rights are Natural Rights that are inherited from males. This is an observable natural reality that is dictated by the males natural superiority in strength and aggression that I am just describing. Sorry if you cannot perceive reality the way it is.

    It is a fundamental principle of nature, independent of man’s beliefs or opinions, that males and females are not “equal” under the Positive Law jurisdiction when it comes to POLITICAL RIGHTS that are in fact recognized for thousands of years in hundreds of countries to be inherited and insured by the males who are naturally physically stronger than the females. It is only a modern occurrence in the last 90 years that females have even had any recognition of their natural political rights recognized and protected, incidentally by MALES who created and consented to the protections (19th Amendment). That fact alone, that it is males who created and extended the recognition and protection to females, that they may enjoy their natural political rights that are inherited equal to the males, aught to clue you in to the natural order of reality. Why do you think Vat says:

    “§215. Children of citizens, born in a foreign country. It is asked, whether the children born of citizens in a foreign country are citizens? The laws have decided this question in several countries, and their regulations must be followed. By the law of nature alone, children follow the condition of their fathers, and enter into all their rights (§212); the place of birth produces no change in this particular, and cannot of itself furnish any reason for taking from a child what nature has given him;” [Emphasis added]

    and

    “As the society cannot exist and perpetuate itself otherwise than by the children of the citizens, those children naturally follow the condition of their fathers, and succeed to all their rights [means that both male and female children gets their citizenship and natural political rights from their fathers]. The society is supposed to desire this, in consequence of what it owes to its own preservation; and it is presumed, as matter of course, that each citizen, on entering into society [now it is implied that Mr. Vattel is only talking about the male citizens who enter into society], reserves to his children the right of becoming members of it. The country of the fathers is therefore that of the children;…” [Emphasis added]

    The children naturally follow and succeed to their father’s rights (not mother’s) as declared by Vattel who is only reporting an observation of nature (“by the law of nature alone”) not stating an opinion. It is obvious that you do not understand Natural Law or Vattel. And, you say that I am making this up as my opinion? I don’t think so or else Vattel would not be saying the same thing that I have been trying to teach you. Children naturally follow the political rights of their fathers because a mother can not physically prevent it but a father can physically insure it against a mother or anyone else.

    I am sorry Troy but your ability to perceive natural reality is what is at issue here not my stated facts of Nature and Law that I am just describing and not inventing. I stand by my writings and do not accept your arguments which I find to be baseless when they are critically examined by observing natural reality and nature.

    I know when I am asserting an opinion or just describing a natural fact and that is all I have ever done is describe natural reality. You fail to take into account the physical differences between males and females that is a natural fact of nature that has influenced the Positive Law jurisdiction to recognize that both males and females must secure recognition of their equal natural political rights away from other males who would deny those natural rights. That is the way Nature and History and Law is whether or not you accept it.

    If Sovereign citizen mothers can pass on equal sovereign political authority to their children, the same as the sovereign citizen father can, then I guess Obama would have to qualify under Article II and be a legitimate President because he would inherit a sovereign political authority as a U.S. citizen from his U.S. citizen mom, no matter what the statutes say or how old she was, and his foreign dad would not matter because one recognized sovereign jurisdiction (foreign dad) cannot trump another (U.S, mom) and the 14 year residency rule of Article II would sever any political loyalties due to his foreign dad.

    I cannot even begin to address your incapacity to perceive reality (cognitive dissonance) and the natural logic of the situation (probably because you refuse to give up your wrong notion that it requires BOTH parents to be citizens and born on the soil of the U.S.) but I would suggest you give it some more thought as it is clear by Natural Law scientific principles, and by natural reason alone, that a mother’s citizenship and place of birth are irrelevant for Article II purposes but a father is essential and required.

    Natural Law is an objective science based on observed facts of nature and natural physical principles. Why do you think that Vattel is described as the foremost authority in his time on Natural Law THEORY? The term THEORY means a scientific THEORY not supposition according to mankind’s opinions. You clearly do not understand the Natural Law jurisdiction, Sovereignty, the Constitution, Declaration of Independence, Article II, Science, etc. I would suggest abandoning your wrong headed insistence that it requires both parents to be citizens which is causing you a psychological dissonance that is preventing you from accepting reality and causing you to falsely accuse me of inventing opinions, that you must believe is the case, in order to obtain emotional placation in your self induced confused mind caused by your false belief in the correctness of your position.

    I’m still hopeful of Lakin knowing what he is doing. He still has a chance to speak out for himself at the sentencing phase. I also wonder whether he is pinning his hopes on having others vindicate him later on as well as gladly playing the sacrificial lamb for now so that an outrage will ensue. I’ll wait a bit longer to see what shakes out before casting a final judgment on Lakin.

  22. Troy   Wednesday, December 15, 2010 at 2:52 PM

    Dear Jedi Pauly,

    We both agree that BHO is ineligible and I admire your determination to keep the issue front and center, but I’ve read your wrongly thought out premise one too many times and I’m finally going to have to clear some things up for you.

    Your entire “father passing birthright” via Natural Law was wrong the first time you introduced it here and it’s still wrong to this day.

    You seem to be real big on Natural Law as the foundation for your premise and that’s a good thing….That is exactly where you should be looking, but I think somewhere along the way you have lost sight of exactly what Natural Law is and where it comes from….You have developed a premise for your argument and then allowed yourself to become entrapped in a tunnel vision, not able to see the simple facts outside of that argument…You can’t see the forest because the trees have blocked your view.

    In your writings you often use the terms:
    “Natural Law” and
    “Natural Right” – this is the one that has led you astray

    Where does Natural Law come from?

    Natural Law comes from definitive NATURAL FACTS that are agreed upon by all, no matter what a person’s ideologies or beliefs are.

    Natural Facts are the ones that often are never given a second thought because they are simply irrefutable and cannot be denied or legitimately argued against by anyone, ever!

    Natural Facts are supplied by God / Nature and become what is known as Natural Law.

    Any law that is derived from the whims of mankind’s beliefs or ideologies are not Natural Laws, but are instead the laws of man / mankind.

    Here are some examples irrefutable Natural Facts = Natural Law

    1. Fire is hot.
    2. Ice is cold.
    3. All healthy human beings bleed the same color blood.
    4. The sun emits warmth / heat.
    5. If a human being ceases to eat and drink, that human will eventually die.
    6. The world’s oceans are salty.

    The above are all Natural Facts.

    Here are a few more Natural Facts: = supplied through Nature / God
    7. Two male human beings cannot procreate between themselves and produce offspring.
    8. Two female human beings cannot procreate between themselves to produce offspring.
    9. Without the presense both male and female human beings the human race would eventually cease to exist.
    10. Male and female human beings are EQUALLY important and necessary for the continued survival of the human race.

    Under God’s / Nature’s Law, males and females ARE EQUAL!

    Your premise of the Natural Rights of a child being dependent upon the father’s status is built upon the whims of the ideologies and beliefs of MAN / MANKIND (Laws of Man) and NOT the laws of GOD / NATURE (Natural Law).

    Natural Fact / Undisputable = my mother and father were both United States citizens when I was born.

    Natural Fact / Undisputable = I was born in the year 1960 in Houston, Texas and was therefore born on American soil.

    Natural Law = I am a “natural born citizen” of the United States of America.

    NOBODY has a “Natural Right” to be president of the United States.

    Natural born U.S. citizens DO have a MAN MADE / STATUTORY right to run for election to seek the office of President of the United States because they meet the requirement of being a “natural born citizen” as stipulated within the U.S. Constitution.

    So, there you have it….It really is that simple.- keep MANKIND’S OPINIONS out of the thought process and stick solely to NATURAL FACTS.

    Those trees – well, they are the forest.

    What planet have you people been on? This trial was “game over” many weeks ago when the judge ruled that “orders come from the pentagon and not from the president”, and when she refused Lakin any witnesses or documents. He now has NO CHOICE – nada, zip, zilch. Puckett is doing exactly the right thing – trying to limit the damage. That is the only thing left to do.

    We are indeed now under a tyrannical dictatorship. We seem to have passed beyond any peaceful remedy. We either learn to live with it or rebel. I fear we have been reduced to this simple choice.

    So just citing an example…

    Only a Sovereign citizen father can create Sovereign U.S. citizens at birth and it does not require a statute from Congress or a Judge to recognize this fact of nature.

    John McCain was created by a Sovereign citizen father, as a Sovereign U.S. citizen at birth, albeit at Coco Solo “family hospital” at Coco Solo Naval Air Station, Panama.

    Barack Obama was created by a subject of Great Britain, as a citizen of Kenya and subject of Great Britain, at birth, albeit, while the place of his is debatable.

    Only one of these men possess the Sovereign Political Right to obtain the office of the President.

    These men had better be careful.

    President Manning will see them in prison when he rightfully takes up his office.

    This issue is so simple to understand yet it eludes everyone even the so called “legal experts”, you know, those creatures know as “attorneys”. Listen up people. America is supposed to be a SOVEREIGN REPUBLIC made up of SOVEREIGN CITIZENS. The office of President is supposed to be a SOVEREIGN POLITICAL RIGHT. Sovereign Political Rights are NATURAL RIGHTS (Declaration of Independence) that are endowed (means INHERITED) via the Laws of Nature and they are unalienable (means cannot be transferred). Soil jurisdictions cannot create you to be a Sovereign citizen at birth because we only inherit our Sovereign Political Rights from other human beings (sovereign citizen father). Since Natural Political Rights are unalienable, they can not be bestowed by Congress or Judges via statutes that refer to soil or your mother because Congress and a Judge are not God or the Laws of Nature or the source of Natural Political Rights and so they cannot transfer unalienable rights to other human beings. They can call a citizenship “natural born citizen” via soil or your mother as defined in a statute or by a judge but that does not mean that you are born inheriting a Sovereign Political Right to be President at birth.

    Article II uses the Proper Noun “Citizen” to indicate one of the Sovereign citizens of the country so that the Sovereign citizens will be represented by one of their own. What other type of citizen could possibly be indicated? A citizen that is not born as a Sovereign U.S. citizen? I don’t think so.

    Only a Sovereign citizen father can create Sovereign U.S. citizens at birth and it does not require a statute from Congress or a Judge to recognize this fact of nature. A Sovereign citizen father takes his natural law jurisdiction with him wherever he goes and can create Sovereign U.S. citizens at birth no matter where in the world he is or what the citizenship of your mother is. Any conflict in loyalties due to foreign soil or a foreign mother are taken care of by the 14 year residency requirement of Article II. That is why you must have a citizen father who creates you to meet Article II requirements and your place of birth and mother are irrelevant. It just does not get any simpler than this. WAKE UP PEOPLE!!!!!

    Puckett is completely dishonorable if he persuaded Lakin to plea guilty to disobeying “lawful orders” via a backroom deal….There is no other explanation for yesterday’s 360 degree turn of events.

    Lakin’s ONLY chance of ever restoring what’s left of his military career was to stick to his guns.

    Whatever “plea deal” was conjured up between Puckett and military brass will NOT be honored….They are going to throw him in prison and dishonorably discharge him….He is going to lose absolutely everything because he listened to a piece of s**t excuse for an attorney.

    Pleading guilty to ANYTHING was the biggest mistake he could have ever made!

    He’s now without any means of recourse.

    Lakin is a smart guy and I’ll never be able to figure out what could have possibly made him hang himself in court….Did they threaten to kill his family?…WTF???

  28. jtx   Wednesday, December 15, 2010 at 11:30 AM

    I guess you’ve not recognized it, but the “pension” that Col. Lakin has to look forward to is more like $0 dollars than $2 million. Also any time he might spend with his family will be delayed from 2 to 4 years while he has an idyllic vacation in Leavenworth Prison.

    The fact that the Oligarchs are now running the country should be obvious when the United States Supreme Court chooses secretly to commit “Treason to the Constitution” in the words of Chief Justice John Marshall of 1821 by ignoring the Kerchner et al case and even refusing to have the two Obama-appointed Justices recuse themselves. If you’ve studied the case that much should be crystal clear to you.

    Expecting Col. Lakin to get any sort of “break” from the lower military court(s) is merely pipe-dreaming. If SCOTUS can pretend there is no need to follow the clear statement of the law on eligibility, why should a military court bother when it can disallow all such evidence and testimony and pretend merely that Obama is eligible because they pretend so???

    We no longer have a Constitutional Republic, you see!!

    i agree with outraged. what a coward to try to stand up to the usurper and then decide that his own comfortable life and security of his family is more important. i hope the time he is in jail he realizes that he has made us very sad by taking this plea. he should have stood up and taken his chances. he could learn a lot from walter fitzpatrick

    This is some outrageous news, that commie Dwight Sullivan of ACLU fame is reporting that Reverend Manning was escorted out of the courtroom by three armed MPs this morning, and never returned! The coup is entering the phase of imprisoning all dissidents now! Mrs. Rondeau, please be careful. I can see these thugs following you and saying one of your tail lights was out as an excuse to silence you next, as you are a voice of truth against this dictatorship!

    “2+2=4”

    Years ago I happened to work in Poland when Solidarity was on the upsurge but when Poland was still a Russian satellite. Along many of the city walls was graffiti saying “2+2=4”. Later I discovered what that meant. It was a reminder to the population that reality is reality. The population had become completely saturated and accustomed to governmental lies and distortions of the communist era. They needed a motto for the rising forces of reality and freedom. “2+2=4” was the motto of that movement.

    Now, it is we who are in need of that motto, here, for us, for the same reason. Mrs. Rondeau’s use of “2+2=5” to portray the current corrupted era is the perfect counterpoint. The current administration runs on a “2+2=5” basis, and the answer is that our survival requires us to reinstitute a “2+2=4” government.

    Graffiti Artists, arise and get to work!!!

    I think that Lt Col Terry Lakin is a great hero no matter what happens. No one can or should blame him as he tried to do all he could… it is the crooks like obama, Judge Lind, etc who should get the blame. The Judge didn’t allow him to even defend his case… how can this be?

    When he pled guilty to the one charge… the media had a field day… making sure the world knew this. But they won’t cover the story in a fair way. The facts are that NO one in the media has actually seen obama’s REAL Birth Certificate(long form)… if any claim they did they are ALL LIARS… the best thing that people can do right now is get behind Lt Col Lakin. Another is to drop any subscriptions to their media companies, news papers, etc…. SO who says that certain people are NOT above the LAW!! Yeah right…
    tell me another one…

  33. Mifouf   Wednesday, December 15, 2010 at 10:18 AM

    In the morning prayers today, several passages seem to be directed specifically toward the protection of Col Lakin. One prayer on particular: “Bring us not to trial or disgrace. Keep us far from wicked people and corrupt companions. Protect me this day from insolence in others, save me from vicious people, from evil neighbors, and from corrupt companions. Preserve me from misfortune and from the powers of destruction. Save me from harsh judgments; spare me from ruthless opponents.”

    I echo what m02 said, and pray for Col Lakin and his family. We can only imagine the intensity of the coercions and manipulations he must be facing. Other actions will undoubtedly also be required of us all if our nation is to survive, but our prayers are central to our efforts.

    Orly Taitz was there yesterday. Why did she not insist on being heard? Why do they never let her finish?

  35. A pen   Wednesday, December 15, 2010 at 8:56 AM

    YES! All that remains is the broadcast from the leader that we are no longer to refer to the old constitution as doing so only complicates governing.

    This article is one of the best I have read related to LTC Lakin.

    This is exactly what I feared when Mr. “I’m a retired Army Big Shot” Vallely stuck his nose under the tent and convinced Lakin to dump Hemenway and go with that fevered metro-sexual Southern Poverty Law Center look-a-like Puckett.

    Lakin has probably been isolated and under unrelenting pressure to change his stance from one of principle to one of plea bargaining for months. As soon as he did that he was lost. The only viable outcome of this farce of a trial was for him to stand convicted, go to prison, and then not only appeal but become the focus of Congressional hearings. By pressuring Lakin into pleading guilty on any charge Mr. Valley and Puckett achieved their aim of neutralizing all of his efforts.

    It is not that difficult to confuse and mis-lead honest people in areas where they have little or no expertise; nor is it that difficult to make an offer most honest men with families and friends can not refuse. Even Ross Perot blinked when they attacked his daughter during his campaign for the presidency. The world is an ugly place and it takes luck and exceptional fortitude – or just plain cussedness, to survive in such a maelstrom.

    My best wishes for Col. Lakin, and God bless the United States, we are going to need it.

    I think something was set up during the court-martial trial yesterd between Attorney Neal Puckett and the government’s judges who forced Lakin to plead guilty. Lakin selected a wrong Attorney Neal Puckett who seems to make him surrender to the trial!

  40. Outraged   Wednesday, December 15, 2010 at 2:47 AM

    Mrs. Rondeau,

    I know how you feel! Perhaps Col. Lakin figured he needed his $2 million pension and time with his young children more than we needed someone to stand up against the Usurper? Are there no heroes left? Where have you gone, Joe DiMaggio, a nation turns its lonely eyes to you!
