(Application for Admission Pro Hac Vice

U.S.D.C. Western District of Texas

Submitted August 28, 2009)

UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT

Western district of Texas

CPT Connie Rhodes MD,
Plaintiff,

v.

Dr ROBERT GATES, UNITED
STATES SECRETARY OF DEFENSE,
BARACK HUSSEIN OBAMA, de facto
PRESIDENT of the UNITED STATES,
Defendants.

APPLICATION FOR TEMPORARY RESTRAINING ORDER

Plaintiff Captain Dr. Connie Rhodes has received what appear to be facially valid orders mobilizing her to active duty with the United States Army in Iraq on September 5th, 2009 (Exhibit A). Captain Rhodes is both a US army officer and a medical doctor, a flight surgeon. On May 15th of this year 501 brigade out of Fort Campbell, KY, currently stationed in Iraq, has requested a support of medical personal in Iraq. Two days ago, August the 23rd, an order was given through the chain of command via e-mail for Captain Rhodes to arrive in San Antonio TX, Fort Sam Houston for Tactical Combat Medical Care Course (TCMC) to be held from August 30th till September 4t and next day, on September the 5th to arrive in Fort Benning in Columbus GA for immediate deployment to Iraq for a period of one year and twelve days from September 5th, 2009 until September 17th 2010. Captain Dr. Connie Rhodes wants to serve her country and fulfill her tour of duty, however as a US army officer and a medical doctor she has severe reservations regarding legitimacy of Barack Obama as the Commander in Chief and repercussions of her service under his orders, particularly in light of mounting evidence of him having allegiance to other Nations and citizenship of Kenya, Indonesia and Great Britain.

“Very rarely have I met a more impressive person than Tammy Duckworth,” said Sen. Barack Obama, D-Ill., in an article the day before she announced her candidacy Dec. 18. “She just has the poise and exudes the type of character that I think would make her an astounding public servant.”

Duckworth is happy to point out that she and Hawai’i-raised Punahou graduate Obama have “a kama’aina connection.”

Both were born outside the country — Obama in Indonesia, Duckworth in Thailand — and graduated from high school in Honolulu — Punahou and McKinley, respectively.

“The big thing for me is that I’m a McKinley High grad,” said Duckworth. “That gives you a lot of street creds. I wasn’t a rich kid.”

Where's this going?

Under UCMJ, he's up for an Article 32 for intentions of missing movement and insubordination, maybe more. But this is one of another challages before civilian courts questioning legitamacy of the Chain of Command....to the top.

I wish him well.

Thanks for the Ping. The DoD will rescind his orders, like in the pasts. Once that is done, he will have no standing. Don’t worry, the orders will be gone before it goes to court.

No doubt, Dr. Rhodes is courageous beyond measure for stepping up like this, but I really did mean to give those kudos to Orly Taitz.

No one else, and I do me NO ONE else in this country has so fearlessly, and relentlessly challenged the Marxist usurper on the eligibility issue like Orly Taitz has.

Last time the officer volunteered for deployment, then filed suit after orders issued....not so here, as far as I can tell from the pleadings.

Because Dr. Taitz has "lived the adventure" in Soviet Russia and doesn't want to see a repeat of it here.

Got a link or at least a citation for that quote?

Very interesting. Besides:

Both were born outside the country — Obama in Indonesia, Duckworth in Thailand — and graduated from high school in Honolulu — Punahou and McKinley, respectively.

There is

“The big thing for me is that I’m a McKinley High grad,” said Duckworth. “That gives you a lot of street creds. I wasn’t a rich kid.”

Which implies that the Punahou kids were "rich kids", although we know Obama's mother didn't believe in money and his grandparents were a furniture salesman and a bank paper pusher.

Last time the officer volunteered for deployment, filed his suit after he was was ordered to go, then the DoD simply rescinded the orders......here, at least from the pleadings, it doesn’t appear the officer volunteered for deployment.

Yes, I see your point. However, He being on active duty was still given deployment orders. I have a feeling that those new orders will be rescinded. I still think that his orders can change in a moments notice.

Yeah, I knew about this coming down the pike a few days ago. Over time, each filing will start chipping away until it becomes an avalanche. And if DA revokes her orders like they did to me, then it’s REALLY open season - if you know what I mean.

On the long Uh Oh thread there was once a picture from a yearbook or local news article that named the persons in the photo.

“Barry Obama from Africa”

I have searched and searched, but cannot find it now.

True, but a lot of eyes will be watching. And Obama won’t like being challenged again, and particularly by a female officer.

Right Michelle?

"Where's this going?"

There's a few facts not in evidence. But, it doesn't look good as it would appear that this is an active reserve officer being mobilized for active duty. It's not entirely clear that she's an obligated reserve officer. My instinct tells me, that as an O-3, the chances are fairly good that she is indeed an obligated reserve officer as many physicians will use the Army to pay for medical school, and of course there's an obligation associated with that. It's a guess, and I certainly could be wrong. If I'm right, then this will be unlike the prior case concerning the Florida National Guard officer, this isn't going away with a revocation of orders.

She's not in any real jeopardy until the exact moment that her orders are directing her to report. Orly's not entirely clear here, but it's either Aug. 30, or Sept. 5, at the latest. At 0800 on one of those days, the Captain turns into the proverbial pumpkin.

There's NO CHANCE that any district judge is going to issue a TRO. It's just not going to happen. Maybe an appellate court would, but I still think it would be highly unlikely. If the Army blinks, and revokes the orders, then I would bet my retirement that the directive to do so came from someplace higher than HQDA - much higher.

Assuming she actually doesn't report, or refuses the deployment even after reporting, my prediction as to what will happen next - not what SHOULD happen, to be clear - is after a brief Article 32 investigation, this young officer will be subjected to trial by general court-martial, for violations of a host of UCMJ offenses probably to include, but not limited to - 86, 87, 92, 133,134 and maybe even 88. In short, we're talking about some real time, and if convicted the Doctor would no longer be able to practice medicine (as a convicted felon) in any state in which I'm familiar. Very high stakes.

She needs to IMMEDIATELY seek out the advice and counsel of a qualified and competent military litigator - of course, one will be provided for her to shepherd her through the Article 32 investigation and beyond, but that JAG won't help - in any way - for the civil action filed in Federal Court.
