(Feb. 10, 2017) — On Friday evening, a petition asking for a presidential pardon for a former Army lieutenant colonel shows more than 1,000 additional signatures since this morning at approximately 9:35 a.m. EST.

From Thursday to Friday morning, the petition showed 316 additional signers.

Former Lt. Col. Terry Lakin was dishonorably discharged from the Army in 2011 after spending five months at Ft. Leavenworth prison for “missing movement,” a decision he made when his chain of command, Congress and the White House would not verify that Barack Hussein Obama was eligible to serve as president and commander-in-chief.

As Lakin completed the last weeks of his confinement, the White House released an image said to be a scan of a certified copy of Obama’s long-form birth certificate, the exact document Lakin had asked Obama to produce to show that he is a “natural born Citizen,” as required by Article II of the Constitution for the nation’s chief executive.

On Thursday night, Lakin was a guest on the WOBC radio show hosted by founder Mike Volin to recap his reasons for seeking proof that Obama was constitutionally qualified to serve.  Following his release and discharge, Lakin authored a book, “Officer’s Oath,” which more fully tells his story as well as providing autobiographical information.

The long-form birth certificate image was denounced as fraudulent almost immediately, and a subsequent criminal probe spanning more than five years confirmed the finding.

Also declared fraudulent was Obama’s Selective Service registration form, a matter the Selective Service System refused to address.

At 4:00 p.m. PST, the petition’s author, Gary Wilmott, reported that 3,007 signatures were registered, and at 4:50 PST/7:50 p.m. EST, the number has grown to 3,075.

In order to garner a response from the White House, a petition must show 100,000 signatures within 30 days.  The deadline for the Lakin petition is February 20.

  1. Brothers and Sisters in the faith, let’s continue to be in prayer for Lakin’s Petition. Our rich American history is full of times that prayer made the difference.

    Many of us have also signed the petition, others that haven’t, indeed sign it, and pass Lakin’s
    story on to others for their support.

    As a friend, neighbor, or family member, and as a fellow American, I am asking your considered action in signing a petition to Congress and/or the President to pardon and reinstate Lt Col Terry Lakin, who, upon receiving orders to deploy, acted in full faith to fulfill his oath of office in questioning the legality of the occupant of the White House at the time as his commander-in-chief, a man whose posted birth certificate and Selective Service application have since been shown by forensic experts to be forgeries.
