Lakin court martial, Terrorists Have More Rights than Lakin

I was listening to coverage of the terrorist trial taking place in civilian court recently and came to the same obvious conclusion as Dr. Kate.

“Terrorists Have More Rights than Army LTC Lakin”

“In Obama’s siege of America, terrorists get trials, and decorated Army officers go to jail.  In other words, treason is the rule: Obama provides aid and comfort to the enemy, and through sedition, rules of engagement, deployments, and malicious prosecution,  attacks the armed forces of the United States.

The Terrorists with Rights

Obama’s  so-called “justice department”, led by terrorist-sympathizer Eric Holdup brings terrorists to New York for a civilian trial based on the U.S. legal system, where great care is taken to protect the terrorist by excluding evidence obtained by torture.”

“Defendant Ahmed Khalfan Ghailani denies helping al-Qaeda kill 224 people in the 1998 US embassy bombings in Africa. The judge ruled the witness could not testify as he had been named by Mr Ghailani while he was “under duress”. A BBC correspondent says the move complicates plans to try Guantanamo detainees in civilian courts.  The Obama administration is hoping to hold such trials for a number of high-profile inmates, including alleged 9/11 mastermind Khalid Sheikh Mohammed. New York Judge Lewis Kaplan postponed Mr Ghailani’s trial, which had been due to begin on Wednesday. The decision was a blow to U.S. prosecutors.”

“The Birth Certificate, or Jail for a Decorated Officer?
Decorated Army officer LTC Terrence Lakin,  in court-martial proceedings for following proper procedure in ensuring his orders are lawful, is denied his right to obtain evidence–not even by torture–and told to ‘get another defense’ because the credentials of the Commander in Chief who gave the orders are embarrassing.”

“In refusing to obey orders because of his doubts as to their legality, LTC Lakin has acted exactly as proper training dictates. That training mandates that he determine in his own conscience that an order is legal before obeying it…Indeed, he has publicly stated that he “invites” his own court martial, and were I the Convening Authority, I would have acceded to his wishes in that regard. But thus stepping up the bar, LTC Lakin is demonstrating the courage of his convictions and his bravery. That said, it is equally essential that he be allowed access to the evidence that will prove whether he made the correct decision.”

Lakin court martial, Where is the military, Answer from retired military officer, Citizen Wells open thread, September 23, 2010

Lakin court martial, Where is the military, Answer from retired military officer

From Carmen Reynolds, Lt Col (Ret), USAF, September 23, 2010.

“Answer on WHERE is the military?
 
Many are asking why the military is doing nothing on the Lt Col Terry Lakin court-martial case.
 
Many do not understand that the military doesn’t say “Boo” unless directed by their Civilian Masters.  The Joint Chiefs of Staff, who direct the Services, derive their orders from Civilian Authorities above, emanating from the Commander-in-Chief.
 
Many now get to their general ranks by being “yes men” rather than independent thinkers. So in order to keep their jobs, they are onboard with the current trends and flavor of the ruling administration. Gen Bostwick has recently come out calling military personnel “bigots” if they will not psychologically accept gays, and that they should get out.  Lady Gaga is trying her best to socially engineer our society into believing it’s OK too and proceeds to denigrate our troops by shouting, “Get out! Get out! Get out!” (that is if they don’t/can’t accept gays.)
All active-duty military members are subject to reprisals for any involvement in these matters. They are prohibited from making public comments regarding vital issues. For example, in the 90’s, we were told NOT to make any more Clinton jokes as military members. I put my retirement papers in shortly afterward.
 
A nation that forgets its soldiers is soon forgotten. In the absence of any assistance from the above, The U.S. Patriots Union has created two White Papers, outlining a proper defense for Lakin and has ensured he receives this. They have attorneys standing by and are raising funds for this effort.
 
USPU also created a Veterans Council, headed by Gen. Vallely in an effort to mount large numbers of Patriots concerned about our country to include: military, retired military and family members.
 
USPU has identified six areas of emphasis so Patriots can concentrate in one area to effect change. As the tea parties are being infiltrated and infighting is occurring, membership will have differing levels of security.
If you really want to know where our soldiers are, they are in the Veterans Council at the U.S. Patriots Union, and they are focused on returning this nation to greatness.
 
Don’t ask where our soldiers are… They are at Patriots Union!

Lakin court martial, Orwellian lies from media, Citizen Wells challenge, Open thread, September 19, 2010

 Lakin court martial, Orwellian lies from media, Citizen Wells challenge

“And if all others accepted the lie which the Party imposed
–if all records told the same tale–then the lie passed into
history and became truth. “Who controls the past,” ran the
Party slogan, “controls the future: who controls the present
controls the past.”…George Orwell, “1984″

***  Update Below ***

There is one theme that I have referred to constantly since early  2008. That is the scary analogy to the world of “1984” that we have been experiencing. It was clear then as now that the mainstream media of the US was doing the bidding of the Obama camp to spread lies and  misinformation. Recently Pravda, “The Truth”, began covering the LTC Terry Lakin court martial and Obama eligibility issues. What a strange world that we live in.

Part of the reason that this blog has succeeded, part of the reason that I have worked so hard was to counteract the mainstream media lies on such topics as Obama eligibility, Obama’s connection to Rezko and Chicago corruption, the real truth about Blagojevich and the US Justice Dept. protecting Obama and now the court martial of LTC Terry Lakin.

I spend much time searching the internet and subsequently I discover which of the Orwellian deceivers are getting first page on Google and other search engines. I knew months ago that The Huffington Post, a paid mouthpiece of the Obama camp, had gotten number one on Google for the following search:

Lakin court martial.

I did not forget this fact and was compelled once again to fight the smears coming from the Orwellian Obama camp.

We have watched in horror as internet scrubbing and revisionist history has taken place on the internet. Search engines have also been tweaked. Much money has been in play. My article on CitizenWells.com is intended to counteract misinformation and lies and to support LTC Terry Lakin, an American hero and patriot.

From CitizenWells.com, September 19, 2010.

A “Lakin court martial” search on the internet yielded the following results.

Lakin court martial story at Huffington Post, Orwellian Lie.
 
Lakin court martial story at NBC,  Orwellian Lie.

Lakin court martial story at CBS, Orwellian Lie.

The Huffington Post, a mouthpiece and recipient of money from the Obama camp, came in first in the search  and reported the following:

 
“NBC News reports that the Army will court martial Lt. Col. Terry Lakin because of his refusal to deploy to Afghanistan. Lakin is part of the discredited “birther” movement, and as such believes that orders from President Obama are “illegal.”””

“The Citizen Wells challenge to The Huffington Post, NBC, CBS other media as well as Glenn Beck is to answer the following question:

“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

I challenge the above media and anyone else to a debate. If you have legitimate proof that Obama was born in Hawaii, present it. Otherwise correct your stories and shut the hell up. I challenge any of the above. If anything that I have written is incorrect, prove it.

This is amazing. I have been searching on Lakin Court Martial for several months on Google. Last night The Huffington Post was still first on the search. I just looked again, after posting both articles, and the Huffington Post does not even show up on the first page. CBS is number three.

“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

The Lakin court martial and Obama birth certificate issues continue to be misrepresented by the media. The usual suspects are involved, The Huffington Post, NBC News, CBS News. The list of Orwellian wordsmiths goes on and on. I am ready to challenge these journalistic prostitutes to a debate or simply get them to answer the question above. An article is forthcoming.

I will not abandon LTC Terry Lakin and I support him 100%.

Here is a Barry Farber interview of LTC Terry Lakin from September 3, 2010.

Lakin Court Martial, Obama eligibility, Military support, Six degrees of separation
“Six degrees of separation is the theory that anyone on the planet can be connected to any other person on the planet through a chain of acquaintances that has no more than five intermediaries. ”

Lt. Col. Terry Lakin believes in the US Constitution as the supreme law of the land. He takes his oath to defend the Constitution seriously. He is facing an unjust court martial as a result of his convictions and patriotism. We must give him our full support.

Many people are still unaware of Terry Lakin and his predicament. Aside from posting articles on this blog, I share information with those around me, those in my sphere of influence. My brother was in town a few days ago and I mentioned Lakin. My brother was not familiar with the case, even though he tries to keep up with the real news. He is just too busy. Now my brother knows and he will tell others.

On October 29, 2009, I wrote the following before the NJ Governor’s race.

“Six degrees of separation.

“Six degrees of separation is the theory that anyone on the planet can be connected to any other person on the planet through a chain of acquaintances that has no more than five intermediaries. ”

This is a simple strategy that is at the heart of grassroots efforts.

Contact as many people as possible and have them do the same. If you have a blog or website, put up article(s) about what is going on in New Jersey. Quote this site, borrow info from this site or create your own article. I am not looking for credit, just results.”

If you haven’t been spreading the word, do so now. And keep letting people like Glenn Beck know that they have a duty to report this.

Lakin court martial, Commander in Chief, Chain of command

“I, [name], do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and
defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies,
foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to
the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental
reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully
discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter.

Officers in the service of the United States are
bound by this oath to disobey any order that
violates the Constitution of the United States.

From Citizen Wells August 5, 2010.

As you read the following, be aware of another important point, there is no time restriction on the president being found to be ineligible.

“Notice the emphasis placed on eligibility in the presidential line of succession.
 US Code
TITLE 3 > CHAPTER 1 > § 19
§ 19. Vacancy in offices of both President and Vice President; officers eligible to act
(a)
(1) If, by reason of death, resignation, removal from office, inability, or failure to qualify, there is neither a President nor Vice President to discharge the powers and duties of the office of President, then the Speaker of the House of Representatives shall, upon his resignation as Speaker and as Representative in Congress, act as President.
(2) The same rule shall apply in the case of the death, resignation, removal from office, or inability of an individual acting as President under this subsection.
(b) If, at the time when under subsection (a) of this section a Speaker is to begin the discharge of the powers and duties of the office of President, there is no Speaker, or the Speaker fails to qualify as Acting President, then the President pro tempore of the Senate shall, upon his resignation as President pro tempore and as Senator, act as President.
(c) An individual acting as President under subsection (a) or subsection (b) of this section shall continue to act until the expiration of the then current Presidential term, except that—
(1) if his discharge of the powers and duties of the office is founded in whole or in part on the failure of both the President-elect and the Vice-President-elect to qualify, then he shall act only until a President or Vice President qualifies; and
(2) if his discharge of the powers and duties of the office is founded in whole or in part on the inability of the President or Vice President, then he shall act only until the removal of the disability of one of such individuals.
(d)
(1) If, by reason of death, resignation, removal from office, inability, or failure to qualify, there is no President pro tempore to act as President under subsection (b) of this section, then the officer of the United States who is highest on the following list, and who is not under disability to discharge the powers and duties of the office of President shall act as President: Secretary of State, Secretary of the Treasury, Secretary of Defense, Attorney General, Secretary of the Interior, Secretary of Agriculture, Secretary of Commerce, Secretary of Labor, Secretary of Health and Human Services, Secretary of Housing and Urban Development, Secretary of Transportation, Secretary of Energy, Secretary of Education, Secretary of Veterans Affairs, Secretary of Homeland Security.
(2) An individual acting as President under this subsection shall continue so to do until the expiration of the then current Presidential term, but not after a qualified and prior-entitled individual is able to act, except that the removal of the disability of an individual higher on the list contained in paragraph (1) of this subsection or the ability to qualify on the part of an individual higher on such list shall not terminate his service.
(3) The taking of the oath of office by an individual specified in the list in paragraph (1) of this subsection shall be held to constitute his resignation from the office by virtue of the holding of which he qualifies to act as President.
(e) Subsections (a), (b), and (d) of this section shall apply only to such officers as are eligible to the office of President under the Constitution. Subsection (d) of this section shall apply only to officers appointed, by and with the advice and consent of the Senate, prior to the time of the death, resignation, removal from office, inability, or failure to qualify, of the President pro tempore, and only to officers not under impeachment by the House of Representatives at the time the powers and duties of the office of President devolve upon them.
(f) During the period that any individual acts as President under this section, his compensation shall be at the rate then provided by law in the case of the President.”

Much has been said orders being tied to the Commander in Chief and the chain of command. Here is what a US Army soldier must understand about the chain of command.

Lakin court martial, Obey orders, Disobey orders, Oath of office, US Constitution

Several days ago we learned.

“PRESS RELEASE
Army Refers Charges Against Lakin To Court Martial
Military Judge Appointed
Arraignment Set for Hearing on August 6, 2010
Washington, D.C., August 2, 2010.  The Army has now referred charges against LTC Terrence Lakin for a General Court Martial.  This action triggered the appointment of a Military Judge to preside over the trial, which will likely be scheduled before October, and held in Washington, D.C. at Ft. McNair.
 
On August 6, 2010 at Ft. McNair in Washington, D.C., the court will convene for the purpose of Judge Lind taking Lakin’s plea to the charges which consist of “missing movement” and of refusing to obey orders.”

The military officers oath of office.
“I, _________, do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter. So help me God.”

Under the Uniform Code of Military Justice, UCMJ, it is a crime to disobey a lawful order. Ultimately all orders flow from the commander in chief, the office of the president of the US. Here is an example of an order that should be challenged. Let’s suppose that a coup was taking place in the US. Let’s suppose that a rogue Speaker of the House was keeping the the president and vice president captive in a secret place and announced that they had been killed. Let’s further suppose that the Speaker gets sworn in rapidly and then begins issuing orders to the military. Let’s further suppose that an order is issued for an invasion of a country. Should military officers blindly follow this order?

The answer is obvious. The orders and the Speaker taking the presidency should be questioned, more information obtained.

We have a very similar situation now with Barack Obama illegally occupying the White House with no proof whatsoever that he is eligible. Terry Lakin has every right and duty to question this. Obama continues to use government attorneys to avoid presenting a legitimate birth certificate and other records. We have a usurper in the White House and thus every military order is subject to question.

LTC Lakin has a duty to defend the US Constitution and disobey illegal orders. It is Lakin’s superiors who should be court martialed.

Notice the emphasis placed on eligibility in the presidential line of succession.
