Petition Launched Asking Congress to Return Dr. Terry Lakin to the Army

DECORATED 17-YEAR VETERAN DISHONORABLY DISCHARGED AFTER QUESTIONING OBAMA’S ELIGIBILITY

by Sharon Rondeau

(Jan. 21, 2017) — One day after the inauguration of President Donald J. Trump and the launch of a new administration, a petition has been posted at whitehouse.gov asking Congress to restore rank, pay and standing to a former Army flight surgeon who was dishonorably discharged for having questioned the constitutional eligibility of Barack Hussein Obama.

In July 2010, Dr. Terrence Lakin, then Lt. Col. Lakin, refused to deploy to Afghanistan for a second tour as a result of unanswered questions he harbored as to whether or not Obama was a “natural born Citizen,” as the U.S. Constitution requires of the president and commander-in-chief.

Lakin had served for 17 years and received a number of commendations when he publicly asked Obama to release his original birth certificate to quell doubts that he was not born in the U.S. or otherwise did not qualify to serve as commander-in-chief.

Before Obama sought the presidency, various narratives of his life were published on the web and in print stating that he was born in Kenya or Indonesia, some of which were later changed to say that he was “born in Hawaii.”  It is well-known that birthplace is at least one factor in determining citizenship, particularly “natural born” status.

Prior to taking his stand, Lakin had contacted his congressman, U.S. senators, military chain of command, and Obama himself to ask for proof of Obama’s identity and eligibility.  At one point, Lakin said that members of Congress with whom he met admitted that they “did not know” who Obama really was.

Lakin ultimately received no response to any of his queries, which did not ease misgivings that as an active-duty Army officer, he could be following illegal orders.

Presiding officer Col. Denise Lind denied Lakin access to Obama’s records because of her contention that releasing them could prove “embarrassing” for Obama.

Interestingly, in 2013, Lind sentenced then-Sgt. Bradley Manning to 35 years in prison for releasing tens of thousands of classified documents to WikiLeaks, which later published them.  Three days before leaving office on Tuesday, Obama commuted Manning’s sentence, which is now scheduled to end in May, citing that it was “excessive,” and, according to The Washington Post, “nuts.”

In December 2010, Lakin was court-martialed and convicted of “missing movement” and “disobeying a direct order,” stripped of all future pay and benefits, and sentenced to six months at Ft. Leavenworth.  He was released one month early for good behavior and proceeded to open a private practice with his considerable medical and osteopathic training as a foundation.

As Lakin was completing his prison sentence, the White House released what it said was a scan of a certified copy of Obama’s long-form birth certificate following months of urging by then-businessman and now-President Donald Trump.  Within 24 hours the image was declared a forgery by several experts.

Later in 2011, a criminal investigation of the image by the Maricopa County Cold Case Posse was launched which concluded six months later that the long-form birth certificate image is a “computer-generated forgery,” a contention later confirmed to have been supported by two forensic analysts in different parts of the world.

Early in the five-year probe, investigators also declared Obama’s Selective Service registration form fraudulent.

In 2013, some members of Congress appeared to be responsive to investigators’ findings of fraud and forgery, but none ultimately took action.

Whitehouse.gov petitions require 100,000 citizen signatures in order for Congress to take action.

    As a former member of American Grand Jury that unanimously, found the USA with the ultimate Manchurian candidate, who could not pass e-verify, Lt. Col Lakin should be restored to his place of honor for questioning BHO. BHO was never legitimate.

  2. MICHAEL W. PHILLIPS   Sunday, January 29, 2017 at 9:41 PM

    OBAMA IS/WAS NOT A FOOL. HE KNEW EXACTLY WHAT HE WAS DOING. EVERYTHING IN HIS POWER TO DESTROY THE USA.
    REINSTATE THE DOCTOR,PROMOTE HIM TO NEXT HIGHEST RANK.

    I had previously written a letter to President Trump asking for this, so I am now glad to also sign the petition.

    Do the right thing

  5. Laura Ryan   Saturday, January 28, 2017 at 3:42 PM

    It is my privilege to sign this petition. I have followed Dr. Larkins case ever since it first appeared on Quinn’s webpage.

  6. Austin Rattigan   Saturday, January 28, 2017 at 1:53 PM

    Reinstate Terry Lakin.

  7. John K   Saturday, January 28, 2017 at 10:14 AM

    Obama sold his soul, and his legacy crowns him Liar In Chief.

  8. Nicholas Gallo   Thursday, January 26, 2017 at 3:12 PM

    I have seen both certificates and the accompanying information that leads me to believe that the Hawaiian certificate is a forgery. I am at least very suspicious.
    One thing we all know for sure is that one of our Nations worse traitors, Sgt. Bradley Manning had his 35 year sentence commuted after only seven years by President Obama ___ a sentence, in my opinion that should have been life without possibility of parole.
    I gladly sign this petition to reinstate Dr. Lakin to the U.S. Army and commend him for his courage.

  9. Mannon and Sandy Lukehart   Wednesday, January 25, 2017 at 3:04 PM

    Totally Agree! He should be re-instated, with full pay.

    LTCOL Terry Larkin should be reinstated. Hopefully President Trump will act swiftly on this shameful act done to a great military officer.

  14. Diana M Wallace   Monday, January 23, 2017 at 6:01 PM

  20. Jeannine Brogan   Monday, January 23, 2017 at 11:00 AM

    Obama the despicable…not really a surprise. Give this man back what was stolen from him!

  21. Roger Malick   Monday, January 23, 2017 at 10:45 AM

    The Obama Administration was such a farce!!!! He did so many things against the American people. This should never have happened and if Congress & Senate had done their jobs, he wouldn’t have been able to get away with all these injustices. God bless Dr. Terry Lakin. I’m signing the petition.

  22. tim cozzens   Monday, January 23, 2017 at 10:10 AM

    Of course he should be reinstated to he former rank if not promoted to full bird. and given all back pays and allowances. He should have never been released in the first place,and especially under DD, that was a terrible call.

  23. Dennis Kitzan   Monday, January 23, 2017 at 9:20 AM

    Mr. President i think you should bring LT. COL. Lakin back and Obama’s Birth cert. should be investigated further.

  24. Sharon Rondeau   Monday, January 23, 2017 at 7:25 AM

    I know all whitehouse.gov petitions send a confirmation link once a person has signed, and that must be opened to register the signature. Maybe you’re correct about the 150 signatures.

  25. Jack Blalock   Monday, January 23, 2017 at 4:15 AM

    Dr. Larkin may have lost his military career over this ‘birther’ issue, but Loretta Fuddy, the author of that fraudulent ‘long form’ Obama birth ‘document’ actually lost her life under the most inexplicable circumstances on 12/10/13 when she became the ONLY fatality following the successful emergency water landing of a local commuter airliner only ONE mile off Molokai. Apparently she had ‘served her purpose’, at that point, to the Obama administration, and had thus become a ‘liability’ to their continued corrupt criminal enterprise. Much like their documented destruction of Lois Lerner’s government computer, and tons of other public records subpoenaed by Congress, she herself was ‘destroyed’ to obfuscate any further evidence of their criminal activities. This singular incident needs to be THOROUGHLY probed by our new Administration as the ‘smoking gun’ which will lead to well-earned criminal indictments of all the shady members of the ‘Obama Family’, a very powerful world-wide Organized Crime operation which, like that of Al Capone, festered and grew out of the corrupt morass that was and is Chicago politics.

    THIS MAN SHOULD NOT HAVE TO PAY FOR obamas IGNORANCE‼️ HE QUESTIONED A VALID POINT….HE DID NOT BETRAY OUR NATION AS obama AND OTHERS DID‼️‼️⚖⚖⚖⚖⚖⚖

  28. Rhonda   Monday, January 23, 2017 at 1:01 AM

    Thank you for your service. I am so sad that you were treated so poorly. You deserve to have your military career back with back pay and all benefits restored. I applaud you for your conviction. Many blessings to you.

  29. Terry l Weaver   Monday, January 23, 2017 at 12:26 AM

    He got cheated but Hillary still walks without reprimand. How much money did she pay off the congress, senate, judges and the list goes on, for her get-out-of-jail-free card? She needs to do time for the crime of leaking classified emails, taking funds from foreign government for her fake charity foundation and lying like a Persian rug. She is so evil, it makes me sick to my stomach. Criminal acts deserve criminal justice, not the more money you have the less time you serve.

  30. BobbiAlyce Dennis   Monday, January 23, 2017 at 12:24 AM

    Bring this Hero back!!!

  31. Linda   Sunday, January 22, 2017 at 11:33 PM

    This should never have happened and Terry Lakin should have all charges dropped and rank and pay re-established.

  32. Ed   Sunday, January 22, 2017 at 11:08 PM

    Mr. Trump please reinstate Dr. Lakin and have Trey Gowdy really look into Obamas records.

  33. Lorraine Woolridge   Sunday, January 22, 2017 at 11:02 PM

    I admire your courage Terry Lakin, I pray that President Trump will be able to exonerate him!!

  34. ELmo   Sunday, January 22, 2017 at 11:00 PM

    Dear Sharon, I neglected to affirm and attest that I signed the petition also and urge all who read this article to “Reinstate Lt. Col. Terry Lakin into the U.S. Army with full rank, pay, benefits and pension immediately”.

  35. ELmo   Sunday, January 22, 2017 at 10:55 PM

    Thank You Sharon,

    I have read the “terms and conditions” and as I understand it the signatures are not viewable (or appear on the counter?) until 150 have been received? Is it possible that under 150 people have signed (or maybe more have signed – but there is an e-mail confirmation requirement before a signature is counted also).
    Thanks again for making this petition available to your readers and the supporters of
    Lt.Colonel Terry Lakin –
    A true American Hero who stood up for America and was severely punished for his patriotism.
    ELmo

  36. Phil Cerciello   Sunday, January 22, 2017 at 10:51 PM

  37. PATRICIA ATKINS   Sunday, January 22, 2017 at 10:44 PM

    I THINK HE DESERVES TO BE REINSTATED

  38. Patrick Malone   Sunday, January 22, 2017 at 10:43 PM

    We need more people like Terry Lakin that stand for what is right even at very high personal and monetary loss GOD BLESS HIM FOR WHAT HE AND HIS FAMILY HAVE BEEN PUT THRU – I’M SURE ONCE PRESIDENT TRUMP IS AWARE OF TERRY’S SITUATION HE WILL REINSTATE HIM WITH FULL PAY AND BENEFITS TERRY IS A TRUE PATRIOT AND THESE ARE THE TYPE OF PEOPLE WE NEED IN THE MILITARY !!

  39. robert ford   Sunday, January 22, 2017 at 10:41 PM

    Return Dr. Terry Lakin!

  40. Michelle chambard   Sunday, January 22, 2017 at 10:18 PM

    Please

  41. Jill Jacobs   Sunday, January 22, 2017 at 10:16 PM

    We the people want Dr Lakin returned to the U.S. Army!!

  42. Patricia Diane Lamb   Sunday, January 22, 2017 at 10:07 PM

    He should NEVER have been relieved of duty. He was probably right, anyway!

  43. Lynn Harris   Sunday, January 22, 2017 at 10:02 PM

    way to go for standing up to obama now come back so you can actually stand for a cause we want you back

  44. Zuleide Leonardo   Sunday, January 22, 2017 at 9:53 PM

    With all the evidences that many good soldiers , high rank military personnel , patriotic were mistreated by the former administration , these type of error can be easily fixed by the present leader ! Small tiny actions as granting this petition will set the high tone for more support !
    This one can be executed now !

  45. Dale   Sunday, January 22, 2017 at 8:51 PM

    I hope Trump can somehow reverse Terry’s dishonorable discharge. https://youtu.be/CtipZ83DaVc

  47. thinkwell   Sunday, January 22, 2017 at 7:08 PM

    Gary,

    Thanks for creating this petition. Dr. Lakin is a true patriot who sacrificed much for us and I am happy to have signed the petition for his reinstatement and have already posted a call for others to do so elsewhere. However, it is possible that the White House petition function (which I believe aka obama started) may not be supported by the Trump administration, either temporarily until they get a handle on it or permanently. I suppose we will just have wait a few days to see if the count updates.

  48. Gary Wilmott   Sunday, January 22, 2017 at 6:21 PM

    Once Terry is exonerated…we the people will ask/demand that our new president award Terry the appropriate honors for his principled sacrifice and leadership to uphold his oath and stand up for the Constitution and the freedom and liberty of all Americans. If the foreign born usurper can get distinguished awards and Joe Biden too then it is a no-brainer that Terry must be honored also. That will be the next step!

  49. Gary Wilmott   Sunday, January 22, 2017 at 6:16 PM

    The only appropriate option I had in creating the petition was to ask for Congressional action. Obviously we will be putting pressure on President Trump to exonerate Terry hopefully with the stroke of a pen.

  50. Jeffrey Harrison   Sunday, January 22, 2017 at 5:01 PM

    ALSO, HERE IS THE EMAIL COTACT ADDRESS TO THE TRUMP’S WHITE HOUSE

    Indeed, why not also us it for Terry Lakin and other issues?

  51. CDR Charles Kerchner (Ret)   Sunday, January 22, 2017 at 3:50 PM

    All: Re. The counter on the Petition drive. The count on the site shows only 1 signer at this moment. That is obviously wrong. I know personally of dozens who have signed it and have tweeted and emailed to me that the did. I assume that the count number has not been updated and will be (maybe on a batch basis) tomorrow by the White House server. I have seen the counter get stuck at a low initial starting number for YouTube video and not show the correct count for at least 24 hours. I’m hoping that is a similar situation with Terry’s petition page … and not something more sinister being perpetrated. We’ll certainly know in a day or two. If the counter stays stuck at one signer, then calls to the White House are in order. JMHO. CDR Kerchner (Ret), http://www.ProtectOurLiberty.org

  52. CDR Charles Kerchner (Ret)   Sunday, January 22, 2017 at 3:42 PM

    I have signed it and will be recommending my followers of my blog, tweets, and facebook page to do likewise. See this links for my words on the subject: https://cdrkerchner.wordpress.com/2017/01/21/a-petition-for-a-full-pardon-re-instatement-and-restitution-for-former-lt-col-terry-lakin/

    I just signed the petition, received the confirmation email, clicked the confirmation link and then received a message that my vote had been counted. However, when I went back to the petition page, the count was still at just one vote. Apparently the count is not updated in real time.

  54. Sidesaddle   Sunday, January 22, 2017 at 1:39 PM

    Thank you Sharon.

    I signed the petition, and forwarded it on to family & friends.

    May our sovereign Almighty God, who is the Righteous Judge of all the earth, answer our prayer.

  55. Bobbi   Sunday, January 22, 2017 at 11:45 AM

    Why not just ask Pres Trump to restore him?

  56. JONATHAN DAVID MOOERS   Sunday, January 22, 2017 at 9:30 AM

    I just signed this petition. THANK YOU, SHARON, FOR THIS POSTING.

    http://www.thepostemail.com/2017/01/17/open-letter-to-president-trump/

    Now that Donald Trump has returned Washington’s power back to We the People, will President Trump give Terry Lakin a Medal of Honor for Terry’s mettle of honor in 2010?

    The Courts Martial of Terry Lakin was a shameful chapter in this country’s history and Obama’s
    eligibility ought to be pursued if for no other reason than to correct the wrongs that were perpetrated by that cold hearted fraud. The press is still silent on the people he wrongly jailed including Lakin and the Muslim Video maker that took the fall for Hillary on Benghazi. A disgusting display by a tyrannical unfeeling administration bent on satisfying Obama’s agenda and ego.
    The msm was a willing conspirator in the whole thing – there has never been anything like it in US History and the US Public (mostly) sat closed mouth and let it happen.
    We have become lazy (as a nation) and forgotten the sacrifices that bought our freedom.
    I hope Trump is not too late to save our Country from the enemy within.
    ELmo
