Benedict Arnold betrayed the Continental Army by secretly plotting to aid the British and then formally changing sides. He was promoted to Major General before his defection. Should Maj. Gen. Hawley-Bowland bear the same label as Arnold did?

(Aug. 13, 2010) — General…

I, Carla Hawley-Bowland, having been appointed a  Major General in the U.S. Army under the conditions indicated in this document, do accept such appointment and do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic, that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter, so help me God.

Bring back memories?  Or have you forgotten…?

Are we to believe you swore this oath in good faith?  In honesty? In Truth?

Do you have the strength of character, the courage, the morality, the integrity and the ethics necessary to uphold this oath?


You realize, General, the Army is on trial here; not Lt. Col. Lakin.  From my personal point of view, General, I do not like what I am seeing!  So please tell me, General Hawley-Bowland, what exactly should we believe?

Should we believe the content in the following links as the media division of the Army would like:



or the real Army represented below as JAG (they cannot both be true)?

However, the following day, outside the courtroom, Brodsky went far beyond interference with Lakin’s commanders. While Lakin was waiting near the courtroom, Brodsky and COL Melanie Craig (Lakin’s “escort”) stood around the corner in the main hallway and in voices easily audible to LTC Lakin, spoke about the need to prevent Lakin after the hearing from speaking to the media, “signing autographs or kissing babies”. Brodsky then said to Craig “just taser him and throw him in the van.”

Lakin says of the incident: “LTC Brodsky meant for me to hear those words, no question. When COL Craig returned to where I was, she said to me ‘you probably heard all that, didn’t you?’ I replied it would have been hard not to. After the hearing, my lawyers asked COL Craig for permission for me to speak to the press, since both CNN and NBC had sent camera crews, but she rudely refused, and she ordered me back into her vehicle to be transported back to Walter Reed.” Lakin concluded his remarks today with: “DON’T TASE ME ‘BRO’!”

I must tell you, General, of my great disappointment in the manner in which I see the Army conducting itself in this matter!  This is totally unacceptable.  This conduct in no way represents the American system of values by anyone’s standards. We treat our enemies with more respect!

You too have the same doubt as Col. Lakin; however, he has the strength of character and the moral conviction to pursue his beliefs, a quality you obviously lack.  No wonder you loathe him so much:  by comparison he shows you up for what you really are.

Let’s face it, General, a three-ringed Barnum & Bailey circus has more credibility than this charade you want us to believe is a legitimate court martial.

Let me ask you a very serious question, General:  I am led to believe you are considered the convening authority in this matter. That being the case, from where do you derive this authority? Is it not from the Commander-in-Chief?  Would not that be Mr. Obama, our domestic enemy?  Surprise? Come on, General, you and every other officer up to and including the Joint Chiefs of Staff are well aware of the subversion of our government by unlawful and unconstitutional means. You are also well aware that this turn of events constitutes a direct attack on our Constitution, the very same Constitution to which you and every other military officer swore an oath (top of the page) to protect and defend; yet you choose to do nothing.

Let’s face it:  without proof of Mr. Obama’s eligibility, you know nothing more than anyone else.

How do you explain this, General?  Dare I describe this behavior as treason?

United States Code at 18 U.S.C. § 2381 states “whoever, owing allegiance to the United States, levies war against them or adheres to their enemies, giving them aid and comfort within the United States or elsewhere, is guilty of treason and shall suffer death, or shall be imprisoned not less than five years and fined under this title but not less than $10,000; and shall be incapable of holding any office under the United States.” That might be exactly the case.

Since you have been aware of this crime for some time now and still continue to ignore your responsibilities to the people of the United States, this makes you guilty of the crime of misprision of felony.

So please explain to this dumb citizen, General, just how do you even have the nerve to carry on this facade of a legitimate organized section of what was once a great military institution?  How do you face yourself in the mirror?

  1. Having taken a couple of mental days off from the ‘Net, I’m still trying to wrap my mind around the threatening of LTC Lakin. If he were to speak to the press after being ordered not to, so what? If they know Lakin’s wrong and Oilbama is eligible, then additional punishment would be tacked on for not following the orders to stay quiet. Plus, if he’s in the wrong, then whatever he might say would only make him look even more the fool in the long run.

    The only reason I can come up with that they’re so determined that he not speak to the press – so determined that they’d threaten to taser him – is that they fear what he might say. Either he’s currently being mistreated and/or he’s in the right. Following that, I can only believe that this court martial is nothing but a formality, a military version of a kangaroo court, that they know Lakin is right but they’ve already unjustly deemed him guilty and may even be punishing him now, as the case is being heard.

    Wow. Just wow. I just can’t get my mind wrapped around US military officers treating one of their own so poorly. I thought they stuck together, right or wrong, and reserved hostility for the enemy and for traitors (like the Wikileaks traitor). This is like a scene from a movie; I expect any moment to hear Nicholson to shout, “You can’t handle the truth!”

    PS: Arnie, have you received responses to any of the letters P&E News has posted? Just curious about how your directness is received.

  2. “There was Treason then among the military, and there is Treason now” &
    “Dear Commanding General – MG Carla Hawley-Bowland:”
    Sent a copy of these article to 1-202-782-0940.
    Hope you don’t mind.
    Mrs. Rondeau replies: Not at all.


    Obama defends Ground Zero mosque

    “Ground Zero is, indeed, hallowed ground,” Obama said at a White House dinner celebrating the Muslim holiday of Ramadan. “But let me be clear: as a citizen and as president, I believe that Muslims have the same right to practice their religion as anyone else in this country. That includes the right to build a place of worship and a community center on private property in lower Manhattan, in accordance with local laws and ordinances.”

  4. Maj. Gen. Hawley-Bowland must insist that Lt Col Brodsky is removed, immediately, from his position as a ‘Judge Advocate’. He should never again be allowed to prosecute anyone.
    Furthermore, Maj. Gen. Hawley-Bowland should refer, directly to The Joint Chiefs of Staff, the matter of Obama’s ineligibility to be Commander in Chief.
    In the meantime, at the very least, Maj. Gen. Hawley-Bowland should formally request The Court to make a formal application to The Supreme Court of The United States, asking for a Declaration on the meaning of ‘natural born Citizen’, within the context of Section II, Article 1, Clause 5 of The Constitution.
    The application to SCOTUS, should also ask for a Declaration, stating the lawful options for the various ranks within the armed forces to challenge an order, based on genuinely held doubts as to the lawfulness of any orders, coming down the chain of command from a Commander in Chief, who refuses to provide proof of his Constitutional eligibility to issue any orders whatsoever.
    Furthermore, Lt Col Lakin’s Counsel should make this application to SCOTUS on behalf of his client and in the interests of justice.
    Any of the participants in this Court Martial have ‘standing’ to make such an application to SCOTUS. Whoever does so, will be writing a monumental chapter in the history of this Nation.

    1. Joe the Blogger: WND.com yesterday (13th) carried a piece saying that LTC Lakin’s attorney said on the G. Gordon Liddy show he was submitting a demand for discovery today. Sure hope he did !!

  5. Fine letter, Arnie – and right on the money!!

    Not only the General you addressed, but NONE of the military actually has the luxury of ASSUMING that B. H. Obama is validly the President and, therefore, that any orders/directive he issues are at all legal considering the massive amount of evidence of ineligibility to the contrary (and little if any showing him to be eligible).

    I’ve also written the General much along the lines you delineate. After all, those who were tried in the Nuremberg Trials assumed and claimed they were carrying out legal orders but they found out quite differently when quite a number of them were hanged (or, in Goring’s case, poisoned himself to obviate the hanging). Some things don’t seem to change and assuming the orders were legal then is no different than assuming a man who has never shown himself to be eligible to hold the office he now occupies is giving legal orders.

    Unless he can prove his definitive eligibility under law, he is not eligible to hold the office and everything he does is void ab initio. Not only the American citizenry but also the American military had better wake up!!!

    The Roman Senator Cicero said it best in 42 BC:

    “A nation can survive its’ fools, and
    even the ambitious. But it cannot
    survive treason from within.

    An enemy at the gates is less
    formidable, for he is known and he
    carries his banners openly. But the
    traitor moves among those within
    the gate freely, his sly whispers
    rustling through all the galleys,
    heard in the very hall of
    government itself.

    For the traitor appears not a
    traitor–He speaks in the accents
    familiar to his victims, and wears
    their face and their garment, and
    he appeals to the baseness that
    lies deep in the hearts of all men.
    He rots the soul of a nation–he
    works secretly and unknown in the
    night to undermine the pillars of a
    city–he infects the body politic so
    that it can no longer resist. A
    murderer is less to be feared.”

  6. The military is still not polarized enough to tell exacly who is on what side. The public now knows who among politicians and other servants are there fraudulently and how to tell but the military needs that same test so the rank and file may look at their chain of command and see beyond the rank and into the heart. There will come a time these allegiances will become validated by action. They must if there is to be any respect at all granted superiors. Traitors above can be removed and the military should know why.

  7. Thanks, Arnie, I appreciate the way you tell it like it is.

    I have noticed my members of Congress do not reply to my communications to them anymore with “Obama’s COLB is on the Internet”, now they just ignore anything concerning ineligibility.

    I believe the change may be do to the recent widespread use of the term “misprision of treason” which so accurately describes what they are doing when they try to defend the indefensible concerning Obama’s eligibility.

    I would like to encourage everyone to use “misprision of treason” in any correspondence with Congress, the media, or anyone else who is/has been complicit in the cover-up of Obama’s ineligibility. It’s having a noticeable effect and maybe the fear of the penalty for misprision of treason will outweigh their fear of the Obama regime.
