THREE LAWMAKERS RECEIVE VISITS FROM SUPPORTERS OF LT. COL. TERRY LAKIN, WHO HAS ASKED THAT OBAMA PROVE HIS ELIGIBILITY TO ACT AS COMMANDER-IN-CHIEF
by Jeff Lichter
(Dec. 6, 2010) — Three rallies were held in the state of Arizona today in support of Army flight surgeon Lt. Col. Terrence Lakin, who is scheduled to be court-martialed in a court of no authority on December 14, 2010 for refusing to follow orders from his chain of command.
On March 30, 2010, Lakin announced in a video that he could no longer comply with any orders issued from his military superiors, as his question regarding the eligibility of the putative commander-in-chief had gone unanswered for more than a year.
Lakin’s decision was based on the fact that no conclusive proof that Obama was born in Hawaii, as he claims, has ever been presented. Rather, evidence exists which points to a birth in Kenya as claimed by Atty. Philip Berg in a lawsuit filed in Pennsylvania which eventually reached the U.S. Supreme Court but was dismissed.
There have been several reports in African newspapers that Obama was born in Kenya or Tanzania, and his wife Michelle has also described Kenya as Obama’s “home country.” How, then, can he be considered a “natural born Citizen” in keeping with the U.S. Constitution’s requirement for President and Commander-in-Chief?
Some arguments state that since Obama’s father was never a U.S. citizen, that alone disqualifies him from “natural born” status. Others have asked if Obama, having been born of a British citizen father and presumably an American mother, can be eligible based on his dual citizenship, which Obama has freely admitted to having.
There is also the issue of his possible Indonesian citizenship and whether or not that expired or was forfeited by Obama when he reached the age of majority.
The American Patriot Foundation, which has lent its support to Lt. Col. Lakin’s case, states that “only citizens who are “natural born” Americans are eligible for election to the presidency…if Barack Obama was born outside of the United States, he cannot constitutionally hold the office to which he was elected in 2008. This status is only established at birth, and can never be won or gained.”
The website continues:
The Obama campaign posted an online, computer-generated document, a Certification of Live Birth (COLB), which it offered as a birth record. The truth is, this document could have been created recently by submission of sworn statements, even if no document from 1961 existed. This COLB is not a standard birth certificate. It lacks common, standard identifiers such as a hospital name and an attending physician signature.
Adding to the confusion, the Obama campaign provided two different hospital names at one time- Queen’s and Kapiolani. NO ONE has ever vouched for the fact that Obama was born in Hawaii in August 1961. No doctor, nurse, hospital administrator, friends, or neighbors. However, since the beginning of 2009 there seems to have been a change from Queen’s Hospital to Kapiolani as the place of birth. The Washingon Post and Wikipedia (presumably at the suggestion or with the approval of people associated with Barack Obama) now claim that he was born in Kapiolani Hospital, even though Kapiolani Hospital refuses to confirm or deny the truth of this statement or to provide a copy of a hospital birth certificate or record.
As The Post & Email contends that, because the chain of command is apparently broken due to an illegitimate commander-in-chief, there is no one to authorize that charges be brought or a court-martial be held against anyone in the military at the present time. There is no authorization in the U.S. Constitution for the Pentagon or any other military body to hold a court-martial without the approval of the commander-in-chief of the military. It therefore appears that the military is abusing its authority by acting outside of its constitutional boundaries, something which LCDR Walter Francis Fitzpatrick, III claims it has been doing “for decades.”
There is also an unanswered criminal complaint of treason against Obama filed by LCDR Walter Fitzpatrick with the U.S. attorney for the Eastern District of Tennessee. Members of the American Grand Jury also filed the complaint with courts, judges, district attorneys and governors across the country, and several states convened their own citizens’ grand juries, issuing presentments which charged Obama with fraud and treason.
The following is a report of the times, locations and events which occurred at each rallying point.
10:30 – 11:45 AM – McCain
30 Supporters gathered at John McCain’s office on 16th Street in Phoenix. Except for a group of about six that entered the office for about a 10 minute period, all marched and held signs (some photos attached) and American flags on both sides of the street for the entire time. Many drivers honked in agreement as they drove by. The group that entered the office were greeted by McCain staffer Barb Donaldson, who listened to those of us who spoke and promised to report the rally and relay the comments made to her to the Senator. THE BEST ITEM TO NOTE ABOUT THIS ENCOUNTER IS THAT IT WAS VIDEO RECORDED BY A YOU TUBE VIDEOGRAPHER named Ed Vallejo and that video will be circulated as soon as we see it posted. We were all surprised that Ms. Donaldson allowed him to film.
12 – 1:00 PM – Kyl
The same 30 supporters made the short trip over to Jon Kyl’s office on Camelback Road in Phoenix and again displayed the signs and flags on both sides of the street for the entire period. Camelback Road is one of the most heavily travelled streets in Phoenix and again the sound of many horns signified driver support. This time, a larger sub-group of about ten entered the office itself and were allowed to comment for 25-30 minutes to staffers Andrew Wilder and Adam Bean, who took notes to relay to Kyl. Of course, most of the comments directly addressed LTC Lakin’s situation including the prohibition on his staging of his own defense, the ridiculous explanations for that by Judge Lind and the responsibility of someone like Jon Kyl to speak out for justice and for Lakin. Natural born citizenship was also addressed. THE VIDEOGRAPHER WAS NOT ALLOWED IN TO THIS MEETING. (Still photos attached – more to come)
2:00 – 3:00 PM – Franks
Perhaps the best meeting of the day occured in the office of Congressman Trent Franks which lasted for some 20 minutes. We were met by the District Office Manager Daniel Hay and Liaison to Franks named Shari Farrington. In response to our comments, which were very similar to those made at the other two sites, we were told that efforts were already underway by staff at their DC office in Washington to “try to stop the court-martial.” Furthermore, when we pressed them that efforts on behalf of LTC Lakin should be made by the Congressman himself speaking out on the issue, we were told that we might be seeing a press release on the subject soon. Dan Hay then took it upon his own initiative to come down from the 2nd floor office and personally greet the rest of the supporters who were marching with the signs and talk to them, which he did for some 15-20 minutes more.
Editor’s Note: Is there one congressman or senator who will uphold his oath to the U.S. Constitution and stand up for Dr. Lakin’s right to know whether or not the man sending men and women into battle is legitimate? Wouldn’t the members of Congress want to know this for themselves? Is everything which Obama has signed over the last two years null and void? Why has no one in elected office made an effort to answer the question and allow Lt. Col. Lakin to be punished when he has done nothing wrong?
What has happened to the checks and balances which were built into our form of government? Is everyone in all three branches corrupt? And what about the fourth branch of government, We the People? Can we do more to stop the kangaroo court from moving against Lakin?
