U.S. Army Maj. Stefan Frederick Cook, set to deploy to Afghanistan, says he shouldnt have to go. His reason? Barack Obama was never eligible to be president because he wasnt born in the United States. Actually, Obama was born in Hawaii in 1961, two years after it became a state. Cooks lawyer, Orly Taitz, who has also challenged the legitimacy of Obamas presidency in other courts, filed a request last week in federal court seeking a temporary restraining order and status as a conscientious objector for his client. In the 20-page document filed July 8 with the U.S. District Court for the Middle District of Georgia the California-based Taitz asks the court to consider granting his clients request based upon Cooks belief that Obama is not a natural-born citizen of the United States and is therefore ineligible to serve as commander-in-chief of the U.S. Armed Forces. Cook further states he would be acting in violation of international law by engaging in military actions outside the United States under this Presidents command. ... simultaneously subjecting himself to possible prosecution as a war criminal by the faithful execution of these duties. Cook, a reservist, received the orders mobilizing him to active duty on June 9. According to this document, which accompanies Cooks July 8 application for a temporary restraining order, he has been ordered to report to MacDill Air Force Base in Tampa, Fla., on Wednesday. From there, the Florida resident would go to Fort Benning before deploying overseas. A hearing to discuss Cooks requests will take place in federal court here Thursday at 9:30 a.m.
But Maj. Stefan Frederick Cook knows better.
While I understand his point he probably would have been called to active duty if Bush was still in office.
This isn’t the right time or place for such a protest and reflects poorly on him and his unit.
I like how the author just flat out states that Orly Taitz is a “he.” Clueless!
so for democrats it’s okay to challenge the existence of GOD himself, but you cannot challenge the existence of the obama Birth Certificate.
Seems we have a NEW Michael New.
What happens to this case if Orly isn’t accepted to practice in GA since it is already filed?
Diogenes can finally give up his watch.
"Where's the poof?"
One of our own!
I don’t think he says he knows better. He is challenging Obama’s status as a natural born citizen. Since Obama has spent a million dollars trying to hide his status, among other documents he is hiding, this is a fair challenge.
Obama could simply put these issues to rest by providing his BC.
“What happens to this case if Orly isnt accepted to practice in GA since it is already filed?”
I am surprised that the pleading was accepted for filing, though it may be that the Plaintiff signed it himself pro se in which case it would be accepted. If Taitz is later admitted, she can enter an appearance or perhaps some member of the bar of the Middle District of Georgia will make a motion for her to be admitted pro hac vice.
I think the case is filed in CA....Not GA.
This is the Cook case. It is GA. But what happens to a case, when it is filed and there is no admitted attorney?
I wonder how far he would get if he was just an E-2 or E-3?
It is signed by Orly with a pending hac vice. As of yesterday, the clerk was still reviewing it. What happens to the Cook case if she isn’t admitted?
Stealing it from the safe where it is hidden, taken to someone’s house, scanned and uploaded onto the ‘Net would be enough.
Don’t know...I was confused...thought it was the case we stayed up for all hours waiting for the LA times article. That is CA ...Judge ruling on merits not procedure.
