The audio from Lt. Gen. Thomas McInerney radio interview is available at:
Two words to you, Windflier: well done.
In the audio, Lt. Gen. Thomas McInerney, stated that there is only one person in America that is required to be born in America in accordance with our Constitution. Only one person and that’s the President of the United States.
Small correction there.
The relevant portion of Article 2, Section 1, Clause 5 of the Constitution, which applies to the Office of the President, requires that:
No person except a natural born Citizen ... shall be eligible to the Office of President only office
However the 12th Amendment also requires that:
But no person constitutionally ineligible to the office of President shall be eligible to that of Vice-President of the United States.
So there are only two offices in our government, the office of President and the office Vice President, which are required to be filled by persons who are “natural born citizens” of the United States, in accordance with our Constitution.
Pr 17:28 Even a fool, when he holdeth his peace, is counted wise: and he that shutteth his lips is esteemed a man of understanding.
Thanks, Vox. I knew that one wasn’t right in the head from the very first post. I mean, only a nutjob would demand that we support their cause, “or else”.
Proverbs 26:5 - “Answer a fool according to his folly, or he will be wise in his own eyes.”
Mt 5:22 But I say unto you, That whosoever is angry with his brother without a cause shall be in danger of the judgment: and whosoever shall say to his brother, Raca, shall be in danger of the council: but whosoever shall say, Thou fool, shall be in danger of hell fire.
Raca: that is Vain fellow or a nut job.
I mean after all, it would not be unreasonable to think that all the freedom loving conservatives at FreeRepublic, who respects the service that Lt. Col. Lakin has given to America, would be compassionate enough to want to stand up in support of Lt. Col. Lakin, who may be going to prison for nothing but “questioning with boldness” whether the current person serving in the office of President is eligible to hold that office in accordance with the Constitution, with the conviction that Lt. Col. Lakin obviously holds dearly for his own oath of enlistment, where in he solemnly swore (or affirmed) that he would support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign or domestic, that he would bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that he takes this obligation freely, without any mental reservations or purpose of evasion; and that he would well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office upon which he was about to enter; So help him God.
How many soldiers in our Armed Forces have given their lives for that same conviction, which Lt. Col. Lakin is so heroically demonstrating?
That's not the point. The poster came into this forum demanding that the Tea Party leadership support LtCol Lakin, "or else".
Of course, the majority of members here support LtCol Lakin's effort to determine whether he is serving under a legitimate CIC, but only a lunatic would use threats and flagrant bullying to elicit support for that cause.
Sorry, but Free Republic doesn't suffer nutbags of any stripe.
Yes... but the previous verse states:
Pr 26:4 ¶ Answer not a fool according to his folly, lest thou also be like unto him.
Col 4:6 Let your speech be alway with grace, seasoned with salt, that ye may know how ye ought to answer every man.
You are the one who started this by griping about my stupid typo up there, when you could have been esteemed as a man of understanding, right?
What do you really know about the man, which enables you to so quickly judge him as a nutbag, nut job, Raca or what ever else you want to call him?
"Pr 26:4 ¶ Answer not a fool according to his folly, lest thou also be like unto him."
I am not like you as you imagine. I answered you according to your folly lest you be wise in your own eyes.
Proverbs 26:7 - "Like the useless legs of one who is lame is a proverb in the mouth of a fool."
"You are the one who started this by griping about my stupid typo up there, when you could have been esteemed as a man of understanding, right?"
I didn't start anything. I wasn't griping and there was no insult. I didn't know where you got your quote. I assumed it was from a written statement and I didn't assume that you had transcribed it. I also said 'Please'. It is your pride which convicts you.
Proverbs 14:3 - A fools mouth lashes out with pride, but the lips of the wise protect them."
His threat!...or else..No way to gain support of a cause that so many sympathize with before he ever showed up..
No way to win over ANYONE who is unfamiliar with Col. Lakin’s case.
He was rude and obnoxious. I quote:
“AND do not give me that bullshit that this is not the purpose of the Tea Party either. I hear all of you frauds speak about the U.S. Constitution as you all sweep this issue under the rug? This is hypocrisy and cowardice.”
Good grief. Start at the top of this thread. Read the title. It says, "Message to Tea Party Leaders: Defend Lt Col Lakin or Be Ready for Operation ZOT!"
If you speak English as your first language, you cannot translate that as anything but a threat.
Now, read through the posts, one by one, and note this guy's overall nasty, bullying demeanor.
I don't have to know who this guy is, or what he's ever done, to judge his behavior on this thread. He was insulting, boorish, and hostile to nearly everyone who challenged his threatening post in the slightest.
It's only coincidental that he strongly supports the mission of a man who many Freepers also support. That doesn't give the fool license to spit in our faces and call us names.
If you don't have the basic moral grounding to see that he got exactly what he deserved here, then you're headed for the same fate.
As I said before, this forum doesn't suffer nutbags of ANY stripe.
I miss all the best zot parties.
LtGen McInerney called Lakin a “...brilliant young officer and nicest person in the world...” I don’t think that equates to him being labeled a hero.
He continues to follow other orders. If he has such conviction he shouldn’t be following any orders as they are all “trickle down” from the top.
Nope, not a “great American hero” in my book.
Has the SCOTUS definitively ruled on what defines a natural born citizen?
I came.... I spoke ....I wuz zot
Shucks, in after the zot. The mods are quick lately.
My standard IB4TZ (and IATZ) post
Sung to the tune of Oh! Susanna, dont you cry for me.
.... Oh, no Bama, please dont lie to me... for Im off to Free Republic with a laptop on my knee.
I come from Minnesota with my laptop on my knee; | Im goin to Free Republic my true love for to see. | It rained all night the day you left, | the weather it was dry; | The sun so hot you froze to death, | Obama dont you lie. | | Oh! No Bama, dont you lie to me; | I come from Minnesota, with my laptop on my knee.
I had a dream the other night, | When everything was still; | I thought I saw Obama dear, | A-coming for The Hill. | The smearing lie was in Duluth, | The croc tear in his eye, | Said I, Im coming for the truth | Obama dont you lie. | | Oh! No Bama, dont you lie to me; | Im off to Free Republic, | with my laptop on my knee.
I fight in my pajamas, | Its plain for all to see. | I aim to be the next Buckhead; | The media all hate me. | I fell in love with Sarah | When my sister bit a moose. | The Guvnors family ate it up | And then they set it loose. | | Oh! No Bama, dont you lie to me; | Im off to Free Republic, | with my laptop on my knee.
She loves her sons, she likes her guns, | and Triggernometry. | The media will jump the shark | When she makes history. | Well, JimRob knows shell pave the trolls | So controversially, | And Berg will knock Obama down | With friends of Hillary. | | Oh! No Bama, dont you lie to me; | Im off to Free Republic with a laptop on my knee.
I soon will be in Hawaii, | And then Ill look all round, | And when I find his birth record, | Ill fall upon the ground. | But if I do not find it, | This Freeperll surely die, | And when Im dead and buried, | Obama dont you lie. | | Oh! No Bama, dont you cry for me; | Im off to Free Republic with a laptop on my knee.
