PRESS RELEASE
THREE-STAR GENERAL FILES SWORN AFFIDAVIT SUPPORTING LTC LAKIN’S CASE
______________________________________

JUDGE TO RULE THURSDAY ON DEFENSE REQUEST FOR  OF HAWAIIAN OFFICIALS AND FOR WRITTEN DISCOVERY OF ALL OF PRESIDENT’S SCHOOL AND COLLEGE RECORDS
__________________________________

Hearing set for Sept 2 at 1100 at Fort Meade, Maryland

A hearing for Lt. Col. Terrence Lakin's court martial is scheduled for September 2l

(Aug. 31, 2010) — Washington, D.C. — Retired Air Force Lieutenant General Thomas McInerney has supplied an affidavit in support of Army Lieutenant Colonel Terrence Lakin, who faces trial on October 13-15. The retired Air Force three-star is the highest ranking officer yet to lend public support to LTC Lakin. His affidavit acknowledges widespread concerns over the President’s Constitutional eligibility and demands the President release his birth records or the court authorize discovery.

McInerney’s sworn affidavit was filed in Court-Martial in support of Lakin’s motions for subpoenas for all of the president’s school records, and for a deposition of the custodian of Obama’s birth records in the possession of the State of Hawaii. The Judge has set a hearing in the Court Martial on these motions for this coming Thursday, September 2nd at 11:00 at Ft. Meade, Maryland. All court proceedings are open to the public. The courthouse is located within Ft. Meade at 4432 Llewellyn Avenue, which is on the corner of Llewellyn and Ernie Pyle Road. At the first intersection after the Reece Road gate, you should turn left on to Ernie Pyle Road. The courthouse is approximately 1 mile south of the intersection of Reece Road and Ernie Pyle Road.

LTC Lakin is a physician and is in his 18th year of service in the Army. He is Board Certified in Family Medicine and Occupational and Environmental Medicine. He has been recognized for his outstanding service as a flight surgeon for year-long tours in Honduras, Bosnia and Afghanistan. He was also awarded the Bronze Star for his service in Afghanistan and recognized in 2005 as one of the Army Medical Department’s outstanding flight surgeons. In March of this year, he announced in a video posted on YouTube that he would refuse to obey orders until receiving proof of the President’s eligibility. So far, more than 225,000 people have viewed that video.

McInerney’s affidavit can be viewed at www.safeguardourconstitution.com.

The following are extracts:

The President of the United States, as the Commander in Chief, is the source of all military authority. The Constitution requires the President to be a natural born citizen in order to be eligible to hold office. If he is ineligible under the Constitution to serve in that office that creates a break in the chain of command of such magnitude that its significance can scarcely be imagined.

As a practical example from my background I recall commanding forces that were equipped with nuclear weapons. In my command capacity I was responsible that personnel with access to these weapons had an unwavering and absolute confidence in the unified chain of command, because such confidence was absolutely essential– vital– in the event the use of those weapons was authorized. I cannot overstate how imperative it is to train such personnel to have confidence in the unified chain of command. Today, because of the widespread and legitimate concerns that the President is constitutionally ineligible to hold office, I fear what would happen should such a crisis occur today.

In refusing to obey orders because of his doubts as to their legality, LTC Lakin has acted exactly as proper training dictates. That training mandates that he determine in his own conscience that an order is legal before obeying it…Indeed, he has publicly stated that he “invites” his own court martial, and were I the Convening Authority, I would have acceded to his wishes in that regard. But thus stepping up the bar, LTC Lakin is demonstrating the courage of his convictions and his bravery. That said, it is equally essential that he be allowed access to the evidence that will prove whether he made the correct decision.

For the foregoing reasons, it is my opinion that LTC Lakin’s request for discovery relating to the President’s birth records in Hawaii is absolutely essential to determining not merely his guilt or innocence but to reassuring all military personnel once and for all for this President whether his service as Commander in Chief is Constitutionally proper. He is the one single person in the Chain of Command that the Constitution demands proof of natural born citizenship. This determination is fundamental to our Republic, where civilian control over the military is the rule. According to our Constitution, the Commander in Chief must now, in the face of serious– and widely held– concerns that he is ineligible, either voluntarily establish his eligibility by authorizing release of his birth records or this court must authorize their discovery. The invasion of his privacy in these records is utterly trivial compared to the issues at stake here. Our military MUST have confidence their Commander in Chief lawfully holds this office and absent which confidence grievous consequences may ensue.

Lakin is represented by military counsel and by Paul Rolf Jensen, a civilian attorney from California who has been provided to him by the American Patriot Foundation, a non-profit group incorporated in 2003 to foster appreciation and respect for the U.S. Constitution, which has established a fund for Lakin’s legal defense.

  1. I HAD a dream………

    Last night i dreamt that Bobby Jindal AND his parents announced
    that they all had recently applied for Hawaiian Birth Certificates

    WOW!!! Still LMAO

    1. Dear Tom,
      That is the sad thing about all these legal demands for Obama’s records….they are not necessary! In fact they are inferior to the real issue of Obama’s eligibility which is the Natural Born Citizen aspect by which the Founding Fathers wanted presidents to be from mothers and fathers who both were U.S. Citizens. There are many examples on the U.S. historical record that supports both parents being U.S. citizens and yet that aspect is not being pursued and the American People have a right to know why!

  2. What did I tell you guys?

    Someone needs to produce something, anything, to put the pressure on. The courts won’t do it. Hate to say it, but

    “I told you so.”

    They’ll let him walk, figuratively. Lakin will come out of this OK, but nothing will come of it. It’s obvious — Lind already spelled it out for us.

    YAWN

  3. Volokh Conspiracy, a well-known Law website used one of my Jonathan Turley blog comments from May as a Blogpost on Monday. It generated over 300 comments, most the usual Obfuscators for Obama with the same 14th Amendment, Title 8 Native born = Natural Born nonsense. The viciousness of their attacks and the way they swarm on me like a pack of dogs is telling. Obama has a web brigade that seeks out opposition and then practices their Alinsky tactics. Anyway, I have tried to get the issue discussed on more mainstream websites like this, and this one is fairly high profile. Mission Accomplished in the education process. Have a look, and feel free to leave a comment.

    UPDATE: Today, professor Kerr has a post about the response he got on the Blogpost about my Blog Comment, which now has over 500 Responses.

    1. You are absolutely right Mick. The comments at Volokh are nauseating. That so many of of these lawyers can’t even distinguish the difference between “citizen” and “natural born” citizen is truly pathetic. A lawyer’s expertise is dealing with the importance of the words which make up a law. It is utterly disgusting how many lawyers favor their fellow lawyers – judges with their judge-made law, rather than the supreme law of the land, the Constitution.

      Many lawyers and judges are automatons of the leftist Democrat-supporting ABA. Don’t expect to be getting truth and justice from them, they’re too busy playing a game of “fraud.”

  4. On which planet is it not “big news” for an American General (active or retired) to formally question the legal validity and legitimacy of the “sitting” U.S. President? How shocking it has been to discover there are tens of millions involved with/in what amounts to criminality of the highest order. All those that have directly or indirectly enabled the usurper to continue “in power” to this date are equally responsible and should too be criminally convicted.

    1. I e-mailed Rush, Lou Dobbs, Fox News, and all the Fox News talking heads and sent them a copy ot the 3-Star General’s affidavit in support of LTC Lakin.

      I’m sure they will be all over this big news right away………..NOT!!

    2. I like to use the “shark bite” analogy. You have seen or have heard it. Whenever some idiot goes swimming or surfing in the ocean and lets a shark bite them on the butt ….IT BECOMES NATIONAL NEWS! The MSM is compelled to tell me and you about it. I personally don’t want to hear about the it! But if there is a genuine valid and legitimate lingering unanswered question about the this usurper who is illegally occupying the peoples White House and we know that the MSM is aware that that unanswered question about this usurper it still alive and well, what do we get? this extremely well organized national and even worldwide …CODE OF SILENCE from the MSM and just about all of government whether it is local, state or federal! And if someone by chance does get a minute of attention that person is immediately labeled by the MSM…a BIRTHER! The insinuation is …HOW DARE YOU QUESTION THIS PRESIDENT’S VALIDITY! There is something very, very, very wrong going on in America and it cannot go ignored by those of us who are aware of it! It is our duty to get to the very bottom of this phenomena and to expose it to the world!

  5. This guy should be strongly considered for sec of defense in the next conservative admin.

    Do we want anybody in gov who has defended the unproven nbc status of hussien?

  6. Has anyone approached Lieutenant General Stanley McChrystal on this? He is an American hero and is now free to speak out against the usurper Obama.
    —————-
    Mrs. Rondeau replies: I had read that someone from Patriots for America had tried to contact McChrystal. I’m not sure if they were able to or not.

  7. Can I please remind people that this is much more than ARTICLE 2, SECTION 1 of the U.S. Constitution! Folks! You must realize that this is a well-organized suppression of historical facts! Somebody from somewhere has quashed this subject at every venue and at every turned corner! WHO HAS THE ABILITY TO ORCHESTRATE THIS SUPPRESSION AND OPPRESSION OF A MUCH WORTHY CONSTITUTIONAL QUESTION THAT WE WANT ANSWERED AT A NATIONAL AND EVEN WORLDWIDE LEVEL? Yes we need to know Obama’s secret past and have A2S1 addressed, but even more, we, as in WE THE PEOPLE, must know who is behind this and why are they subjecting the American people to this!

    1. Behind the suppression of the truth about Barry? The so-called U.S. “Justice” Department, the willingly, (and in some cases very intimidated) media, and the U.S. Congress. People like Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi must undoubtedly be hard at work on keeping the truth suppressed from the American people because of her involvement in the total fraud that IS Barry Soetoro/Barack Obama.

      1. Thank You, but I am aware of that, but this is much more. This is to well organized! 100% of the MSM! A few politicians made casual mention about the birth certificate (which I think is a decoy) but never ever said anything about ARTICLE2 SECTION 1 and what the Founding Fathers meant by Natural Born Citizen! Glenn Beck despite his very successful rally over the weekend won’t touch it! Hannity and O’Reilly won’t either. Where’s Rush? We know with certainty that this A2S1 is a valid and legitimate Constitutional question that needs to be brought before the people for debate and discussion, but someone out there has the power to put up a wall! That wall should be more inspiration to learn the truth as to who is behind this than the A2S1 question itself!

      1. Chance,

        Several things he’s done already are an “admission of guilt” (to us). You need NEW information or evidence.

        Why would SCOTUS say he must show something NOW?

        Yes, I think a procedure would take place to depose him. I was high on this happening in the past, but when the courts nor SCOTUS want to do anything about it, it’s pretty clear; they only think elections at this point are the way of proper correction. Sad, but true.

      2. The Supreme Court has received numerous Presentments against the usurper delivered to each one of them personally and they have probably been deep sixed. Also all the court cases brought against him was personally blocked by elena kagan, the new Supreme Court Judge, surprise surprise!

  8. Their are several factors to observe in this development. One, Lt. Gen. McInerney is taking a moral stand. The total lack of any supporting evidence of barry soetero even being a citizen is in question. Two, the facts of dual citizenship (British/Kenyan father, American mother) are problematic in fulfilling the Constitutional qualifications of “natural born” status which is the wording (with intentional reasons, i.e.Vattel) of our founding document.

    Therefore, the continued obfuscation and reluctance of barry soetero to release any records of his past raises the bar of speculation to heights by his own doing. Now, as he personally engages (photo op) with soldiers coming from Iraq (another false flag item to discuss later) they cannot look him in the eye or salute with honor the putative CIC without suspecting his fraudulent election. In addition, if barry soetero does allow the court martial of Lt.Col.Lakin because of covering his own undocumented past, that confirms his total ineligibility to command even a boy scout troop (which he didn’t support either). Every military branch will agree, “we have your back” in the loyalty to each other. When the commander throws a Lt.Col. under the bus to cover his Marxist’s agenda you know he is unfit for office and hiding huge secrets.

    1. What I see in the general’s affadavit is validation for the entire so-called ‘birther’ movement. The faithers have been playing birtherism as a sign of extremism, ignorance, stupidity, racism, etc., and this affadavit completely undermines that tactic.

  9. I saw the article mentioned on the safeguardourconstitution.com earlier tonight along with the aforementioned affidavit. I left the site for about 2 minutes and when I tried to return, it was blocked by some sort of “web management” page.. As if right now, 9:55 pm, it still is blocked.

  10. Thank goodness for Gen. McInerney’s support of Col. Lakin’s search for the truth about Obama’s eligibility. However, I disagree with the part of the general’s affidavit that suggests information from Hawaii could ever “[reassure] all military personnel once and for all for this President whether his service as Commander in Chief is Constitutionally proper.”

    No, unless Hawaii has proof that Barack Jr. is not the son of Barack Sr., the very most the Hawaii info could establish is that Barack Jr. is possibly a U.S. plain vanilla citizen as well as a born subject of Great Britain. And a child with foreign citizenship at birth is sure as heck NOT a natural born U.S. citizen.

    Regardless of where the child of a foreign father may be born, that child does not naturally, automatically, indisputably become a citizen of this country and of no other country. Barry Soetero/Barack Obama belonged to Britain at his birth–if his father was the man he has claimed as his father.

    I would hope that Col. Lakin does not ignore the considerable body of evidence indicating that Obama Jr. was actually born in Kenya, according to which he is not even a plain vanilla U.S. citizen, much less a natural born one.

    1. From the SS.gov site directly copied -Q18: Is there any significance to the numbers assigned in the Social Security Number?

      A: Yes. The first three digits are assigned by the geographical region in which the person was residing at the time he/she obtained a number. Generally, numbers were assigned beginning in the northeast and moving westward. So people on the east coast have the lowest numbers and those on the west coast have the highest numbers. The remaining six digits in the number are more or less randomly assigned and were organized to facilitate the early manual bookkeeping operations associated with the creation of Social Security in the 1930s.
      Q20: Are Social Security numbers reused after a person dies?

      A: No. We do not reassign a Social Security number (SSN) after the number holder’s death. Even though we have issued over 415 million SSNs so far, and we assign about 5 and one-half million new numbers a year, the current numbering system will provide us with enough new numbers for several generations into the future with no changes in the numbering system.

      So, he is fraudulent from the the very start. We need to press this issue as much as the birth/citizenship issue. He is one big lie. An empty suit. An impostor. A planted puppet with high stakes agenda. Why the slow of heart to believe in his usurping election from areas of leadership in various branches of our gov remains to be seen. The KoolAid must be pretty toxic to not see this deception.

    2. Gram…”they” have. It was part of Orly’s case that got tossed in CA.

      If you or I had used a phony SSN, however, we’d be writing from the jailhouse now.

  11. In a speech today at Fort Bliss, Obama said:

    It also means that as we transition in Iraq, that the one thing I will insist upon for however long I remain president of the United States is that we serve you and your families as well as you served us.

    I could understand: “As long as I am President…,” but “…for however long I remain president…”???

      1. Actually America isn’t good enough for him, as soon as he gets us into third world status he plans on being “KING of the World.

    1. Perhaps he feels pressure from somewhere(s)/someone(s) to resign or else. I, for one, hope he chooses “or else” to make sure we get full reversal of all he has done to us, politically and (il)legally. Tried, convicted, jailed, or more…….

  12. Oh my gosh, thank you Lt. Gen. McInerney!!! Watching and reading continuously on this eligibility issue since the 2008 campaign, it seemed that nothing was going to force Obama to prove he is eligible to be POTUS. Seeing many retired military being dismissed for lack of ‘standing’ (WHAT!?!) in court for honoring their oaths to the constitution just confused, frustrated, and then infuriated me, as it did millions of others. Call me silly, but the tears just flowed as I read this article. Thank you for standing up for Lt. Col. Lakin when it seems very few others (those in higher gvmt/judicial positions, I mean) are willing to do so. God bless you, sir, and God bless Lt. Col. Lakin.

  13. I always thought that the SCOTUS has never applied the term “natural born citizen” to any category. This is really interesting it would be great to see one of those rulings so that I could use it as defense against those who claim citizen parents are not required.

    $1

  14. Finally!! A real man steps forward. Where are all the other officers who could have done the same thing months ago. Hopefully, the judge in this case will DEMAND the release of the liar-in-chiefs records.

    God Bless America!

  15. My take on this natural-born citizen issue,

    If there has ever been a SCOTUS ruling that “there can be no question that having two US parents, and born on US soil defines who is a natural born citizen”, then there can be no other condition that would also define you as a natural born citizen. After all, there are very finite birth conditions. And doubtless, a child born to two US citizen parents on US soil is absolutely a natural-born citizen. There is no question – but there would be a question about any other type of birth circumstance, which in and of itself, demonstrates the fact that only one type of birth circumstance qualifies to be “natural-born”.

    To define a term is to indicate the category or class of things which it signifies. In this sense, the Supreme Court of the United States has never applied the term “natural born citizen” to any other category than “those born in the country of parents who are citizens thereof”.

  16. With all due respect to the Lt. Gen., there is NO invasion of privacy issue here! He was required to show proof of Natural Born Citizenship prior to running for office!

    For God and Country!

    1. And who was going to require it? piglosi signed off on his eligibility papers, what does that tell you? Then Cheney signed off on them too, that isn’t all that surprising either since he is a member in good standing of the CFR and attends the bilderberger meetings.
