An MSNBC report suggests that the ‘birther’ debate may finally be coming to a head, as the Army will pursue a court martial of an officer who has refused to take orders from the Commander In Chief:
U.S. military officials tell NBC News that the U.S. Army will court martial a lieutenant colonel who refuses to deploy to Afghanistan because he considers orders from President Obama to be “illegal.”
Army doctor Lt. Col. Terry Lakin believes Obama does not meet the constitutional requirements to be president and commander-in-chief, because he believes (incorrectly) that Obama wasn’t born in the United States.
*Note: It is clear that MSNBC’s reporters are not objective in this regard, as they have already judged Lt. Col. Lakin to be guilty because he “incorrectly” believes that President Obama was not born in the USA. No evidence has been submitted at this point that proves, beyond a shadow of a doubt, that the President was not born in Kenya.
Lt. Col. Terry Lakin gives us his reasoning in a video posted below:
Past challenges to President Obama’s natural born citizenship have failed to yield any results other than to be thrown out of federal courts around the country.
But this time is a little different, as the previous cases were brought on by citizens who, according to some courts, did not have authority under the Constitution to challenge the President’s legal standing under Article 2, Clause 5.
In Lt. Col. Lakin’s case, it is he who is being challenged by a military court for committing a crime, and thus the tables may have turned. The case cannot simply be dismissed as frivolous or without merit, as happened to Maj. Stefan Cook, who took legal action in civilian court. This time, the government will have to see the case to completion, which means that Lt. Col. Lakin should be allowed full discovery in this case. Though we are not completely clear on military law in this regard, it would stand to reason that if Lt. Col. Lakin is in the wrong, it can only be proven via a certified birth certificate (see below).
We suggest to our readers that there are some inconsistencies regarding President Obama’s eligibility, and the only way to silence critics and unbelievers is to prove that he is legally serving as President of the United States.
Some key points which we have found to be curious regarding this issue:
1. MICHELLE OBAMA SUGGESTS THE PRESIDENT IS FROM KENYA
A recently available video from August 2008 shows First Lady Michelle Obama at the LGBT Delegate Luncheon, suggesting that Kenya is Barrack Obama’s “home country.”
2. THE PRESIDENT’S GRANDMOTHER SUGGESTS HE IS FROM KENYA
Sarah Hussein Obama, grandmother of President Obama, is quoted as saying, “Yes, I was present when Obama was born,” specifically to referring to being born in Kenya (Watch the video below at approx. 4:40).
3. THE PRESIDENT HAS FAILED TO PRODUCE AN ORIGINAL BIRTH CERTIFICATE
Though a Certification of Live Birth has been made available to the public by numerous sources including this link at the LA Times, there is a dispute as to whether or not this document proves that the President was born in the USA. The question regarding the document is not in its legitimacy, it is in the fact that in 1961, anyone, regardless of where they were born, could obtain such a certificate in Hawaii if they were a resident and requested a certification from the Hawaii Medical Examiner’s office. The document does not necessarily prove his birth in Hawaii, because it does not include a hospital or the name of the doctor who delivered him, which from our understanding, is a requirement on Birth Certificate, as opposed to a Certification of Live Birth.
4. THE PRESIDENT HAS REPORTEDLY SPENT MILLIONS IN LEGAL FEES TO KEEP COURT CHALLENGES FROM FORCING HIM TO SHOW HIS BIRTH CERTIFICATE
The obvious question is: If President Obama has nothing to hide, then why not show the America public his actual Birth CERTIFICATE, as opposed to a certification? Instead, the President has reportedly spent millions of dollars in legal fees keeping any court challenges from forcing him to publish this evidence. There have been no less than 20 court challenges to date.
Of course, Mr. Obama may simply be sick and tired of the challenges and may be acting out of personal principles and not actually hiding something.
There are, of course, numerous other inconsistencies and hard facts here, as there are with any conspiracy fact or conspiracy theory, and they can be viewed in more detail at the Safeguard Our Constitution web site.
We believe that Lt. Col. Lakin has a legitimate case, as the President has not yet proven his eligibility to serve as President of the United States and Commander-in-Chief of our armed forces. Senator McCain had to prove eligibility and Senate Resolution 511 (April 2008) cleared him for the go ahead. But why was no resolution required for Mr. Obama, even in the face of serious dispute by many citizens of the United States?
This is a constitutional requirement and it is alarming that all challenges under Article 2 have been dismissed and/or thrown out of court as frivolous. However, it is clear thus far, the President Obama, though a constitution professor, does not necessarily believe in the document he has sworn to uphold.
The evidence suggests that President Obama may have been born in Kenya and that he may be hiding something, and there are millions of Americans that dispute his eligibility. The so-called “birther” movement, although marginalized by the media, is not some fringe group of right wing extremists. The inelgibility sentiment is shared across the entire country by millions of Americans who have essentially kept silent.
Why not clear this up beyond a shadow of a doubt?
