The Department of Defense has compelled a private employer to fire a U.S. Army Reserve major from his civilian job after he had his military deployment orders revoked for arguing he should not be required to serve under a president who has not proven his eligibility for office.
According to the CEO of Simtech Inc., a private company contracted by the Defense Security Services, an agency of the Department of Defense, the federal government has compelled the termination of Maj. Stefan Frederick Cook.
Cook's attorney, Orly Taitz, wrote in her blog that Simtech CEO Larry Grice said he would try to find another position within the company for Cook, but nothing is currently available.

Looks like Obama might be painted into a corner, forced to either show his credentials as a natural born citizen or create a national crisis that could have some seriously ugly repercussions.
Look to the military for the flashpoint.
TONIGHT on THE ANDREA SHEA KING SHOW
@ 9 pm ET
with guest COL. HARRY RILEY, USA, Ret.
From World Net Daily
A U.S. Army Reserve major from Florida scheduled to report for deployment to Afghanistan within days has had his military orders revoked after he argued that he should not be required to serve under a president who has not proven his legitimacy for office.
His attorney, Orly Taitz, confirmed to WND the military has rescinded his impending deployment orders.
"We won! We won before we even arrived," she said with excitement. "It means that the military has nothing to show for Obama. It means that the military has directly responded by saying Obama is illegitimate and they cannot fight it. Therefore, they are revoking the order!"
COL. HARRY RILEY'S reaction:
As you will recall I sent a notice a day or so ago regarding Army MAJ Cook who was pressing for an injunction in civil court to challenge the legality of his orders to Afghanistan.
His position was rather straight forward... he was more than willing to comply with orders but not convinced Mr. Obama is a legitimate commander in chief and simply requested confirmation if Obama meets requirements specified in Article 2, Section 1 of the US Constitution.
Apparently the US Army has developed wobbly knees and a squishy backbone, as they seemed to have gone into full retreat. According to Dr. Taitz, attorney, MAJ Cook's orders have been abruptly cancelled. (Read below)
Is this the end of the story? I don't know but on the surface it looks like the Army would rather quit than fight...are they protecting Obama...rhetorical question? Will MAJ Cook feel reprecussions? Will other military members now take a similar action as MAJ Cook and question the legality of orders??
We have a usurper in the White House that has put America in debt for generations under false pretenses, has laced the US government with men and women of questionable character, preaches "transparency" but fights it tooth and nail when it pertains to him personally, now has the military challenging orders, and forcing a socialist, fascist policy on America that some are predicting will result in a violent uprising.
The search for truth will eventually win the day...it may be in the California court...Obama will not be able to carry out his destructive agenda as America will not allow it...there is a point that even the spineless politicians in Washington will come to their senses and reject Obama for what he is...a narcissist, an empty suit, a threat to United States freedom and liberty.
Harry Riley, COL, USA, Ret.
JOIN US TONIGHT AT 9 for a closer look at the ramifications of this turn of events.
Uh, how do ya figure that? Cook is finished in his civilian life, and soon to be his military life.
Orly speaking on Lou Dobbs right now.
Give that man a job!!!!!!!
So now they’ve made a mountain out of the “proverbial molehill”.....and propelled an issue they didn’t want to deal with ...out into the glaring public eye.
Missed it. What did she say?
We need to flood out Rush, Sean, Beck and Drudge with requests to cover this!!!
Beckwith, our own FReeper and author of the fantastic The Obama File http://www.theobamafile.com/

Well, I guess since Barry got away with firing corporate executives, he has the power to fire anyone. Look up “tortious interference”.....
Dobbs in commercial now but will go back to Orly. She is just getting started - giving the background of Hawaii’s live birth certificates of foreigners and several military and others who have signed on with her.
Just the regular, not the extended version.
Thanks — CNN Headline News?
I assume his clearance was pulled. I'm interested to know how many of obama's coven of Czars (30+ and counting) are eligible for security clearances....My guess is very few.
Forgot - Orly also spoke about no documents for Hussein when he was sworn in as Ill. Senator.
What concerns me is that someone with barry’s power and contacts has the means to produce a forged document of sufficient quality to shut down this investigation.
Agreed! Trying to keep this quiet only propelled it to the surface.
“Give that man a job!!!!!!!”
Nobody has been lining up to hire vets, not for as long as I can remember (mid-1950s).
Ok, if it is, how can he be fired? He is still military and they are breaking the law. He could sue???
“My guess is very few.”
My guess is that there’s no single member of his misadministration who could get a security clearance based on a bona fide background investigation.
Unfortunately, you’re probably dead on. No one will be able to dig out the truth for a decade, if then.
especially the obfuscator in chief.
Dissent won’t be tolerated ping.
“Ok, if it is, how can he be fired?”
1. He’s not on active duty. That’s what the squabble was about.
2. Two words - security risk.
Like the old Evil Empire, the SSR of America will increasingly use a “diagnosis” of mental instability to neutralize and bullyrag dissenters.
Many others have the same concern. So, why hasn't he? He's had plenty of time but something is holding that up. Could be there's far too many records that need to be scrubbed - Hawaii Health Dept., Kenyan government and local entities, Hawaiian hospital, school records, early medical records in the US and abroad, adoption records, passports, college scholarships and college papers, driver's license, or any number of files around the world.
Defendant Col. Wanda Good filed a motion to dismiss the plaintiff's action for a temporary restraining order "for lack of jurisdiction" today.
"This case no longer presents a live case or controversy, nor does Major Cook have standing to pursue his claim," it states, "therefore, the Court lacks subject matter jurisdiction over his claims and they should be dismissed."
It continued, "The Commanding General of SOCCENT has determined that he does not want the services of Major Cook, and has revoked his deployment orders. .. Without mobilization orders, Major Cook lacks standing to pursue his claims."
I am not a lawyer but somehow this really stinks. It seems to me that there has to be a raft of military regs against such behavior as well as other laws.
As soon as all of the forgers (beetling away round the clock for months now) have finished their work, the Lawn Jockey will fling the whole kit and caboodle in our faces.
Just in on Fox-—shots fired in Senate Office Bldg.
This stinks to high heaven. As I’m monitoring your comments I;m also watching Glenn Beck and he’s about to have a stroke — explaining how Goldman Sachs and AIG own our country — Ron Paul on with him next after the break.
Beck has a blood pressure cuff with him on the set.
The carousel we’re on is spinning faster and faster.
Please tune in tonight — I’ve got the outspoken Col. Harry Riley (USA Ret) and Bill Gheen of Alipac coming on to talk about all of this.
9 p ET - details in first post above.
That is a concern. But I am bucked up with the thought that something similar to that scene in the movie "The Verdict" where the nurse pulls out a copy of the original document (unredacted) and the defense goes bonkers. It was a great scene. So, keep the faith, the truth will prevail, eventually.
I just got in from a going-away party for a friend....say whaaaaat???
Cook may have a great career as a politician in the future. If Obama gets dethroned because of Cook’s action, he may become a national hero.
The Governor of Hawaii still has the Obami original under lock and key. The only thing that I and the rest of the world will believe is the copy that SHE releases.
Then why hasn't he done so prior tho this?
I believe Rathergate made forged documents a bit of a challenge.
Not in Senate building — about 4 blocks away
Why is he finished in civilian life? Because he got fired? I doubt it.
>>We need to flood out Rush, Sean, Beck and Drudge with requests to cover this!!!<<
It’s doubtful that anything will happen — that foursome does like their three square meals a day.
I stopped listening to them last year simply because I do not want to be reminded on a daily basis that my country is going to hell in a handbasket. They talk, but offer no solutions.
I would think he can file a wrongful termination, and try to force Obama to present his bona fides during discovery.
Major Cook is a very brave man. No matter what happens to him, he’s going to be fine.
Major Cook has painted himself in a corner. Obama is firmly in the White House with the media and lefty loons doing a fine job of guarding the gates.
APPLICATION FOR PRELIMINARY INJUNCTION
Plaintiff Major Stefan Frederick Cook previously received from the Defendants in this cause what appear to be facially valid orders from Colonel Wanda L. Good mobilizing him to active duty with the United States Army in Afghanistan on July 15-18, 2009 (Exhibit A). Plaintiff filed his Original Application for TRO on Friday July 10, 2009, and on Tuesday, July 14, 2009 his deployment to Afghanistan was revoked by order of Colonel Louis B. Wingate, apparently Col. Goods successor at Army Human Resources Command in St. Louis (Exhibit B). This unexpected action does not in any way, shape or form, moot the application for TRO, which is here amended and resubmitted as an Application for Preliminary Injunction, covering both the possibility of future orders and to prevent negative collateral consequences such as retaliation against Major Stefan Frederick Cook (which have already begun) including possible violations of the general Federal and specific military whistleblower acts, as well as the First and Ninth Amendment civil rights of Major Stefan Frederick Cook to challenge the chain of command in the U.S military. It is obvious that this case has the potential to be converted into a class action on behalf of all military servicemen and women who require the means of establishing the legality of their orders with certainty. This Court has the authority to hear cases which might otherwise be moot so long as they present: 1) an unsettled legal issues of public interest and importance and 2) an issue of a recurring nature that will escape review unless the Court exercises its discretionary jurisdiction. Major General Carol Dean Childers retired but subject to lifetime recall, and Lt. Col David Earl Graeff Medical Surgeon in US Airforce Active Reserves, subject to recall any day, join in this Application for Preliminary Injunction because it is a matter of unparalleled public interest and importance and because it is clearly a matter arising from issues of a recurring nature that will escape review unless the Court exercises its discretionary jurisdiction.
“They do in some industry sectors.”
Then they hide it very well. Unless you’re talking about the “revolving door” hires of officers not because they are vets, but because it is hoped they will have influence when a contract is let.
What would you call Rush's Op-Ed in the WSJ earlier this year proposing a true alternative to the bailout?
