LTC Lakin prison letter, December 21, 2010, Terry Lakin Action Fund, Leavenworth

LTC Lakin prison letter, December 21, 2010, Terry Lakin Action Fund, Leavenworth

“Why has Obama, for over 2 years, employed numerous private and government attorneys to avoid presenting a legitimate birth certificate and college records?”…Citizen Wells and millions of concerned Americans

LTC Terry Lakin first letter from prison, December 21, 2010.

“Hope all is well. Don’t know how to start a letter or what to say. I hope I made a difference in a very important matter. It cost me a lot. But I now have to believe it turned out okay. There certainly are no do-overs. The important thing is for the work to carry-on so we never have this situation again.

Today is my fourth day at Leavenworth and my first day with supplies to write and send letters and hoping for a phone call today. Another soldier and I arrived Saturday AM shortly after midnight. We are considered in ‘reception’ status until we complete about a week of briefings and assessments. But they have a holiday schedule until after New Year’s Day. Although they are making some efforts we likely will remain in ‘reception’ status until into January.

Reception status is mostly lock down in my cell. We now get two hours of ‘rec time’ in the morning and afternoon. Rec time is cell door open to a common pod area with a four-seat table, an exercise bike that does not work, a flat-screen TV that we cannot watch, and two showers. Activity is playing cards or a few board games, working out in my cell between meals, reading the rulebook, Bible, and now writing letters. Looks like the routine for the next several weeks. We have limited stamps, envelopes, and I am writing with a small, soft plastic (almost rubber pen) that is not to comfortable.

After getting more integrated in January (hopefully minimum security) we may have more privileges. There will not be much use of a computer, limited phone, news, or TV. We have to order our own health and comfort supplies from a small provided list. We are allowed one order request per month and not more than $35 per month. I’m hoping they will honor my first order on credit- we have not been able to get money into our account yet – not having any communication with Pili yet. I’m hoping to get a small radio with ear buds so I can get some news radio. Had to work hard to decide about how many batteries I could get by with vs how many rolls of toilet paper to buy.

The trial seems long ago now. What a feeling of helplessness going through the process. I likely got the best outcome I could have- but it was painful.

After the trial I overhead someone say, “Well, he’s no hero now!” Sorry, I was not in it to be a hero. Just thought I was doing the right thing. I spent enough of myself and my family’s future for now. Others are going to have to continue.

Got to go now. Moving cells quickly. Phones don’t look good today. They brought a phone in but no one knows how we can call out collect. Sigh…

Terry”

Keith Ellison, Borders irrelevant, No security policy position can be premised on military might

“Why has Obama, for over 2 years, employed numerous private and government attorneys to avoid presenting a legitimate birth certificate and college records?”…Citizen Wells and millions of concerned Americans

We need a war on illegal aliens and compromise of our borders, especially with idiots like Minnesota Representative Keith Ellison making the following remarks.

From TheBlaze.com, December 22, 2010.

http://www.theblaze.com/stories/progressive-vision-borderless-us-rep-keith-ellison-%e2%80%9cgod-willing%e2%80%9d-%e2%80%9cborder-will-become-an-irrelevancy%e2%80%9d/

From World Net Daily December 22, 2010.

“U.S. congressman declares: Borders will be ‘irrelevant’
Stunning statement from same lawmaker sworn in with hand on Quran, not Bible”

“A so-called spiritual conference at which Rep. Keith Ellison, D-Minn., called for the U.S. border to become an “irrelevancy” was led by a slew of extremists, including a Marxist who reportedly compared the tea-party movement to Hitler.

Conference speakers include radicals with deep ties to President Obama.

Yesterday, TheBlaze.com, founded by Fox News host Glenn Beck, posted a video from a conference led by the Network of Spiritual Progressives, or NSP, in which Ellison, the first Muslim member of Congress, declared to about 400 attendees that “God willing,” the U.S. border will become irrelevant.

Stated Ellison: “No security policy position can be premised on military might. …The way it works is we are a country guided by ideals of equity, generosity and engagement in our relations with other nations and those philosophical ideals create safe borders … and, God willing, one day the border will become an irrelevancy.”

Ellison continued, “And you know, the fact is, it’s time for us to answer a critical question, and that is how are we going to shape a progressive foreign policy agenda that provides a platform for the U.S. government in the 21st century.”

WND has learned the conference was led by a slew of extremists who have had close relationships with Obama.
One of the main speakers was avowed Marxist Michael Lerner, editor of the pro-Palestinian Tikkun Magazine. Lerner been accused of using the magazine to justify Palestinian terror and has written articles in which he suggested the 9/11 attacks were a response to U.S. policies.

According to an account of the conference by Baltimore Sun columnist Marta Mossburg, who attended the two-day event, Lerner compared tea party activists to Hitler at least five times.

Mossburg wrote that Lerner used the conference to bolster support for Obama.

“We’re here to support Obama. …We’re here to help him to be the Obama Americans thought they elected,” she quoted Lerner as saying.”

From CDR Charles Kerchner

“LTC Terry Lakin stood up for us all in his effort to support and defend the Constitution.  The Congress has failed him when he wrote letters as a soldier to Congress people asking for a Congressional Inquiry into Obama’s exact legal identity like that same Congress investigated John McCain.  The Congress did nothing. The legal system in the USA both civilian and domestic failed him.  He has now paid the price for his courage.  As I write this he is imprisoned in Ft. Leavenworth in Kansas starting a sentence of six months.  His wife was a stay at home mom raising their three young children. As part of his punishment he has lost all pay and benefits and any future retirement opportunities. Upon release from prison he will be dismissed from the Army. We must now stand up and financially support Terry Lakin and his family in his moment of need.  Please visit this website and make a financial contribution large or small to this specialized fund dedicated to supporting Terry and his family while he is imprisoned.  I have.

I agree with and support CDR Kerchner’s efforts.

I want to take this further.

I am going to push for a reversal of this kangaroo court’s findings.

I am going to push for LTC Terry Lakin to be reinststed with rank and privileges and then to receive a promotion.

I am going to insist that Congress step up and do the job they should have done at the latest in January of 2009.

LTC Terry Lakin conviction triggers congressional investigation, Lt. General Thomas McInerney, Judge Lind unfair, Citizen Wells open thread, December 11, 2010

LTC Terry Lakin conviction triggers congressional investigation, Lt. General Thomas McInerney, Judge Lind unfair

“Why has Obama, for over 2 years, employed numerous private and government attorneys to avoid presenting a legitimate birth certificate and college records?”…Citizen Wells and millions of concerned Americans

From World Net Daily December 10, 2010.

“Retired Air Force Lt. Gen. Thomas McInerney predicts the incoming Republican-controlled House of Representatives will launch an investigation if Lt. Col. Terrence Lakin is convicted in next week’s court martial.

Lakin is on trial for refusing to obey orders to deploy to Afghanistan. He challenged the orders because he questions President Barack Obama’s eligibility to serve as commander-in-chief of the armed forces. His court martial is scheduled to begin Dec. 14.

“It looks like he’s not being treated fairly,” said McInerney in an interview Friday on Denver talk radio station KHOW.

“It’s important that he gets a fair trial, which means discovery. Since the Army will not allow that I believe in the final analysis that this will be overturned, but he may have to go to the slammer in Ft. Leavenworth.”

Lakin had hoped through the discovery process to force Obama to produce documentary evidence demonstrating his birth and citizenship status so that Obama’s authority to give orders as commander-in-chief would be demonstrated or disproven.

Note: A legal-defense fund has been set up for LTC Terry Lakin. Click for information.

As reported earlier by WND, court martial judge Col. Denise Lind, however, simply declared the orders received by Lakin were valid. Lind refused to allow Lakin to address the underlying eligibility issues and limited the scope of the trial to whether Lakin had knowingly disobeyed orders.

McInerney called on Congress to “do its job” and determine whether Obama is constitutionally eligible to serve as president.

“[Lakin] really had a very important point. He is not a birther, he is a constitutionalist,” said McInerney. “Now it shouldn’t be the job of a lieutenant colonel and flight surgeon in the U.S. Army to be the constitutionalist. It’s the job of the Congress and the executive agency to do that. But we’ve had 44 presidents of the United States and only one, the current president, has not shown a valid birth certificate.”

McInerney suggested Lakin is certain to be convicted if the court martial proceeds.”

“”The judge in this particular case said I do not know enough about the Army to be able to understand the Army’s position on the Uniform Code of Military Justice,” said McInerney, who added he once commanded an army division in Alaska as part of a joint Army-Air Force command.

“I am intimately familiar with the Uniform Code of Military Justice,” said McInerney. “But you get a judge … who says that I as a three-star general who had general court martial authority do not know enough about the Uniform Code of Military Justice. Dr. Terry Lakin is not going to get a fair trial in this particular proceeding.””

William Cellini trial date set, Cellini Blagojevich Rezko Levine Obama, All searches lead back to Obama, Citizen Wells open thread, December 10, 2010

William Cellini trial date set, Cellini Blagojevich Rezko Levine Obama, All searches lead back to Obama

(Highlighting done by Citizen Wells)

From the Chicago Tribune December 2, 2010.

“A date has finally been set for the long-delayed trial of a Springfield businessman charged with illegally plotting to raise campaign funds for former Gov. Rod Blagojevich.

At a status hearing Thursday, a federal judge in Chicago scheduled William Cellini‘s trial for Aug. 22.

Cellini is a longtime fundraiser and behind-the-scenes power broker in Illinois politics.”
http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/local/sns-ap-il–cellinitrial,0,6721744.story

All searches lead back to Obama and Rezko

From Citizen Wells November 1, 2010.

“I was following up on news on Obama corruption cronies in Chicago and Illinois and the Blagojevich trial saga and came across an article that was probably much unnoticed.”

“From the Chicago Tribune November 16, 2008 reported on Citizen Wells April 29, 2010.

“Connections could touch every somebody”

“To fully appreciate our politics you’ve got to look at the connections. Sadly, this task is beyond the national press and some locals besotted with our renowned vintage, Combine Kool Aid.”

Cellini is accused of helping shake down a Hollywood producer and politically connected Chicago investor Thomas Rosenberg for $1.5 million in campaign cash for Gov. Rod Blagojevich. Cellini also is accused as a point man in a plot to remove U.S. Atty. Patrick Fitzgerald as federal prosecutor.”

Cellini really began to pile up the cash when then-Gov. Thompson gave him a state gaming license. Webb and Zagel were young prosecutors under then-U.S. Atty. Thompson. Later, Zagel was director of the state’s Department of Revenue under Thompson. Webb ran the State Police.
Everybody knows somebody. So, no, Illinois politics isn’t a Robert Ludlum novel.
Illinois is Six Degrees of Bill Cellini.”

“The Combine wants Fitzgerald promoted out of town. But President-elect Barack Obama has promised newspaper editorial boards he would keep Fitzgerald in Chicago to fight political corruption.

That’s the same President-elect Obama with Mayor Daley’s guy Rahm Emanuel as his chief of staff, and another Daley guy, David Axelrod, as Obama’s chief strategist. The mayor’s brother Billy is one of Obama’s chief economic advisers. Whew!

Some political analysts become quite upset when “Daley machine” and “Obama” are mentioned in my column. They feel compelled to give me a vigorous corrective. But this same Flat Earth society denied the existence of a Combine for years, then shut up for a while when Obama’s real estate fairy Tony Rezko was convicted in the federal government’s Operation Board Games probe.”

Obama was chairman of the Senate Health & Human Services Committee in January 2003. A few articles in the media have mentioned that Obama sat on a committee that reviewed matters related to the Planning Board in conjunction with the Governor’s staff but none have discussed his integral part in getting the bill passed.

A review of senate records from January 2003 to August 2003, shows Obama played a major role as chairman of that committee, in pushing through Senate Bill 1332, that led to the “Illinois Health Facilities Planning Act,” which reduced the number of members on the Board from 15 to 9, making the votes much easier to rig.”

“The bill was filed with the senate secretary on February 20, 2003, and assigned to Human Services Committee for review on February 27. Less than a month later, as chairman, Obama sent word that the bill should be passed on March 13, 2003.

On May 31, 2003, the House and Senate passed the bill and the only senator listed in the “yes” votes mentioned in the Board Games indictments is Obama.

Blagojevich made the effective date June 27, 2003, and the co-schemers already had the people lined up to stack the Board and rig the votes with full approval from Obama.”

“During the trial, Stuart Levine testified that when he sought reappointment to the Planning Board, he told Republican co-schemer, Bill Cellini, to tell the Blagojevich administration he would vote however they wanted when approving projects.”

“A June 2003 email exchange produced in the trial shows Obama was one of eight officials who received the names of the nominees for the new Board ahead of time, from the office of David Wilhelm, who headed Blagojevich’s 2002 campaign for governor.”

“Corrupt appointees fund Obama and Blagojevich campaigns”

“A few weeks later, Beck said, Rezko called to say he would be reappointed along with a Republican holdover Levine. Beck also testified that Rezko told him Blagojevich was set to appoint Rezko’s three doctor friends to complete the rigged voting bloc. He said he met the doctors in August 2003, at the first meeting of the new Board.

Dr Michel Malek gave Obama $10,000 a little over a month before the first meeting on June 30, 2003. He also donated $25,000 to Blagojevich three weeks later on July 25, 2003, and gave Obama another $500 in September 2003. Malek was an investor in Riverside Park.

Dr Fortunee Massuda donated $25,000 to Blagojevich on July 25, 2003, and gave a total of $2,000 to Obama on different dates. Massuda’s husband, Charles Hannon, is a co-schemer in the pension fund case and testified against Rezko in the trial.

Dr Imad Almanaseer contributed a total of $3,000 to Obama after he landed the appointment. On March 13, 2008, Almanaseer testified against Rezko and told the jury he was an investor in Rezko’s fast-food businesses.”

“This responds to your November 20, 2009, memorandum to General George Casey, Chief of Staff, U.S. Army, subject: Complaint of Wrongs Under Article 138 (AR 27-10).”
Army Regulation 27-10, paragraphs 20-4b and 20-4e define the terms “commanding officer” and “wrong,” respectfully. A “commanding officer” is “[a]n officer in the complainant’s chain of command, up to and including the first officer exercising general court-martial jurisdiction over the complainant, authorized to impose nonjudicial punishment (Article 15, UCMJ) on the complainant.” General Casey does not meet the definition of “commanding officer” because he is not a member of your chain of command and he does not have the authority to impose nonjudicial punishment on you.”

“Which part of “Chain of Command” do they not understand?

Obama, if he were eligible to be president, would be in this chain of command. Since he is not eligible, he should immediately be arrested. If you are in the military, including, but not limited to General Casey, and you are not involved in removing or at least challenging the usurper in the White House, you should be court martialed, not LTC Lakin. If you are involved in preventing LTC Lakin from challenging the usurper, Obama, from doing his sworn duty as a military officer, you should be shot.”

Major General Paul Vallely, retired, asked for Obama to resign earlier tbhis year. He has spoken out on the LTC Terry Lakin court martial.

From Birther Report December 8, 2010.

“Army Major General(Ret) Paul Vallely appeared on the Peter Boyles radio show on 12/7 where he discussed numerous topics including LTC Lakin’s upcoming court-martial. During the interview MGEN Vallely stated that if Colonel Judge Lind allows this court-martial to go forward that Judge Lind and the General above her needs to be relieved and they need to face court-martials themselves for allowing the corruptness to exist within the court-martial system. He also stated Obama and Holder should be hauled off in handcuffs.”

Please explain to me why those in the military, those who were given notice and information about Obama’s eligibility issues and particularly those who are trying to prevent LTC Terry Lakin from performing his duties as a military officer to defend the US Constitution, should not be subject to arrest and prosecution for one or more of the following US code violations.

“TITLE 18 > PART I > CHAPTER 115 > § 2382
Misprision of treason
Whoever, owing allegiance to the United States and having knowledge of the commission of any treason against them, conceals and does not, as soon as may be, disclose and make known the same to the President or to some judge of the United States, or to the governor or to some judge or justice of a particular State, is guilty of misprision of treason and shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than seven years, or both.”
