Welcome Back!

General James E. Cartwright, Vice Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff

Several active duty and retired military members last year initiated lawsuits challenging Barack Obama’s Constitutional eligibility to serve as President and their Commander-in-Chief. They got nowhere. As previously reported, we have two more warriors, and our heroes, who are putting it all out there for the sake of truth and the oath they took to support and defend the Constitution. This is the same oath all commissioned officers take:

I, _____ , having been appointed an officer in the (Service) of the United States, as indicated above in the grade of _____ do solemnly swear that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign or domestic, that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservations or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office upon which I am about to enter; So help me God. (DA Form 71, 1 August 1959, for officers.)

As reported on both WorldNetDaily and The Post & Email, one of the two officers to publicly defend his oath and the Constitution is Lt. Col. Terrence Lakin, a decorated Army physician, who takes his oath seriously. Lakin serves as the flight surgeon for 3rd Squadron, 4th Cavalry Regiment and has orders to deploy to Afghanistan for his second tour of duty there. He has reservations about Obama’s legitimacy to serve as president and commander-in-chief because of mounting evidence that Obama was born overseas. In defense of the constitutional requirement that a president must be a “natural born citizen,” and in staying true to the oath he took, Lakin is demanding Obama present proof that he is a natural born citizen and qualified to be his Commander-in-Chief. Until then, Lakin refuses to obey what he believes to be illegal orders. Now the Pentagon has seized his computer, read him his Miranda rights, and informed him that he will soon be charged with serious crimes.

It is beyond hypocrisy that the Army required Lakin to bring copies of his birth certificate upon reporting for duty to Afghanistan but they give a pass to their purported Commander-in-Chief in establishing his own identity. Lakin has remained steadfast to refuse to report for duty until Obama proves he is eligible to serve and thus has de jure authority to issue orders.

It is astounding that an officer with Lt. Col. Lakin’s credentials who is standing tall behind his oath to support and defend the Constitution and to protect it against all enemies, “foreign or domestic,” instead of being treated with support and respect for upholding his oath, is being threatened by his superiors. Lakin has been issued a “counseling form” from Lt. Col. William D. Judd, warning that his deployment orders are valid:

On 30 March 2010, this command became aware of your intentions to refuse to follow deployment orders. Your stated reason for refusal was your belief that the election of the President of the United States is invalid because you believe he is not ‘native born’ [sic]. This counseling is to inform you that your deployment orders are presumed to be valid and lawful orders issued by competent military authority.”

Interestingly, Lt. Col. Judd addresses Obama’s status as “native born,” not “natural born.” This had to have been stated either out of ignorance or a deliberate attempt to “spin” the issue. Judd further states that Lakin’s orders are “presumed to be valid and lawful orders issued by competent military authority.” That begs the question as to why Judd only “presumes” that the orders are valid and apparently has not performed due diligence to ascertain that Lakin’s orders are valid and lawful? Perhaps it is because Judd doesn’t know, doesn’t care, or is just following orders, lawful or not.

When pressed about the issue of Obama’s eligibility, the Army responded with “No Comment.”  The Army brass is circling their wagons to protect an impostor and is pillorying one of their best who is simply doing what they themselves should be doing. How can Americans have any respect for those at the highest chain of command when they engage in a cover-up that will likely go down as the biggest deception to be perpetrated on U.S. citizens? Those military officers who are participating in this huge and immensely shameful cover-up are despicable examples of the integrity, honor and bravery we have come to expect of our military.

Whether Lakin actually gets a trial or not remains to be seen. However, no trial would withstand the scrutiny of the American public unless Lt. Col. Lakin is allowed full discovery in order to defend himself. All of America is waiting for that.

Lakin is within his rights to disobey an illegal order. The onus is on Barack Obama to prove his eligibility to be President and Commander-in-Chief. The military brass are making complete fools of themselves by prosecuting Lakin.  It not only makes Lakin look like the hero America has been waiting for to put it all on the line for the sake of honor, fidelity and the Constitution, but it also casts Lakin’s commanders all the way up the chain of command as unfit to serve and dishonoring the uniform. Instead of those officers upholding their own oath to support and defend the Constitution, they protect and support a man who has provided no proof that he is eligible to be at the top of their chain of command.

It appears the military leadership has bought into the perversion of political correctness. Don’t touch Barack Obama: After all, he is our first black president. Perverted PC has done great damage to America’s finest officers and to the stability and security of this nation. The world watches this Kabuki performance and snicker up their sleeves at the naivete’ of America and her erstwhile military leaders.

The military are not alone in this miscarriage of justice. Just because no Democrat party official, no legislative body, and no judicial action has yet to put Obama’s feet to the fire in support of the Constitution, it relieves none of them from the responsibility to do so. America is still waiting.

The other military officer is Lt. Commander Walter Fitzpatrick III (Ret.). As was reported last week,  Fitzpatrick has been released from jail and is scheduled for a hearing in the Monroe County Courthouse in Madisonville, TN on April 20. Patriots are being called to attend the hearing en masse. This case, too, makes a mockery of justice, and we pray that the rule of law prevails for both Lt. Col. Lakin and Lt. Commander Fitzpatrick. They are our heroes, and America will continue to stand behind our brave active and retired military who swore to support and defend the Constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic, and are doing so at great risk to their careers and personal freedom. As far as the military brass and others go who are behind the witch hunts, they deserve nothing but derision and disrespect for refusing to support and defend the Constitution and its brave defenders. Instead, they file serious charges against those officers. The military “can do” motto isn’t what it used to be. And the esprit de corps? Only if you see no PC evil, hear no PC evil and speak no PC evil.

  1. I have really been angry that none of the high ranking officers in any of our military have also come forward about this fraud and usurper in the White House. It is a total disgrace and they are traitors and cowards and will go down in history as such.

    For any of you officers reading this site shame on you. The blood of this country will be on the hands of each and every one of you who did nothing to protect and defend our Constitution, America and all Americans.

    Shame on you and every time you take a check, yet keep silent may you somehow wake up to see what you are doing to this country. You bunch of sissys and cowards and traitors.

  2. Obama and our corrupt government and also the upper levels of the military, have a “put up or shut up moment” SOON!! Lt. Col. Lakin is a TRUE HERO, who is doing the work of ALL AMERICANS, in finding out that we have been LIED to with an illegal alien as the President!! I don’t see the him getting court- marshaled, because the defense will ask in discovery, for Obama’s real birth certificate and ALL HIS RECORDS FROM ALL THE SCHOOLS HE HAS attended. Stay tuned, because this is going to get interesting. We will see that the democrats,republicans , congress and senate, have commited TREASON, by not vetting Obama!! Every law he has signed is illegal!!

  3. RE: “However, no trial would withstand the scrutiny of the American public unless Lt. Col. Lakin is allowed full discovery in order to defend himself.”

    Is anyone familiar enough with military law to know whether Lt. Col. Lakin can be court marshalled without the right of discovery?

    If that is his right, and he is never brought to trial, that would be very interesting, indeed.

  4. I remember when Liz Cheney said last year that she believes Obama is ineligible. Knowing she is Dick’s daughter, did she hear something from her dad or was this just a hunch on Liz’s part? I believe they all know he’s ineligible. What I can’t figure out is why they are covering for him. Riots? Covering for some other person(s) pulling the puppet strings who may have ahold of the purse strings as well? Threats of: Martial Law? Nuclear or Chemical War? Or are they all in with this NWO and doing their part to make it happen? We know that this has been in the works for a very, very long time. George Bush, Sr. was very much for NWO, & so is his son. Just some thoughts of mine.

  5. The Nazis on trial at Nuremberg “presumed” that their orders were legitimate, too. Did that argument pass muster with the international tribunal?

  6. The eligibility question is lost on no one. Everyone from the media, to the politicians, to the military is aiding and abetting this fraud. Does anyone actually believe that Obama was not VETTED before running for President, let alone Senator? Does it seem comprehensible that the FBI and CIA would not have known everything about this guy given his radical past? Are we to believe that George Bush, Dick Cheney and Condie Rice would not have been alerted, especially since 9/11, about the mysterious background of this man? And yet he was allowed to take office any way. Very strange or very deliberate?

  7. “Interestingly, Lt. Col. Judd addresses Obama’s status as “native born,” not “natural born.””

    Good point Kathleen =).

    From the USCIS website,
    “Right to run for elected office.
    U.S. citizenship is required for many elected offices in this country.
    Naturalized U.S. citizens can run for any elected office they choose with
    the exception of President and Vice President of the United States, which
    require candidates to be native-born citizens.”

    When did the Constitutional requirement change from Natural Born Citizens to Native Born Citizens?
    I don’t recall any Amendment being passed changing the wording.

    1. Hammer,

      I reviewed the same U.S. CIS website and pdf file you listed here over 3 weeks ago and sent an email to them asking for the 1960 thru 1980 Citizens Almanac hand book and all its revisions. If you note, this current Almanac was revised in July of 08 shortly prior to the elections. I have not had a response back from USCIS as of yet.

      1. I’m sure I will likely get no answer, but I plan on calling U.S. CIS tomorrow during regular hours and asking why their website requirement for citizenship for the president and vice-president differs from the requirement of the U.S. Constitution.

        We need to stick with this…

    2. They also qualified the statement with the word”presumed”. If they are so sure of the orders are valid why qualify, someone is covering their ***. He should write back and demand a court martial and see how they react.

  8. Lt. Col. Lakin is a member of an Army Chief of Staffs medical team’s flight unit. Pentagon clearance, etc., way on up the beanstalk. These men never, ever disobey an order, period. He is following orders, no doubt about it. From his comments, this has been in the works from the get-go. Lt. Col. Lakin had gone through the proper channels with his superiors, etc.. The top brass knew and have known what they are up against in this. They’ve got the goods on Barry now; it took some time to break it down is all.

  9. Lt. Col Judd has “native-born” and “natural born” confused, and maybe on purpose. Our Founding Fathers rejected “native-born” and chose “natural born” for the qualifications of President.

    In June 1787 Hamilton proposed that the President “be born a Citizen of the United States”. Native-born means “of a specified place by birth”. In Hamilton’s proposal, “place” is the US. Hamilton’s draft was rejected.

    Five weeks later, John Jay wrote a letter to George Washington suggesting that the Commander In Chief be a “natural born Citizen”. John Jay’s term is what appears in Article II Section 1 Clause 5. Our Founding Fathers understood that being born in the US was not enough, but that the President must also be born of US citizen parents.

  10. This is making me sick. It is so incredibly obvious that Obama is not eligible to be POTUS, in at least three different ways. Yet the military and the media continue to treat anyone who points out the obvious as if they have gone crazy.

    This issue in and of itself is tearing America apart.

    1. Bob said: This issue in and of itself is tearing America apart.

      Bob, I believe that has been the intent from the very beginning. Nothing else makes sense.
