So, are you in contact with Capt Rhodes? Maybe the Doc is a Freeper also.
Pardon me for not remembering the last one(Cook)? He made the news and was swept under the rug. I hope she starts a chain reaction when it will be impossible to ignore! God Bless them all!!
But I shall soon be.
Absolutely amazing. Written in 2006.
May it come back to bite him in the a$$
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.
You have FReep mail.
Obama blinked the last time because he is chicken of discovery.
Wayta go Captain Connie!
You can always ask him (Major Cook), he’s a Freeper
Which is what happened last time.
They won’t go for court martial - under UCMJ she will have the right to discovery.
Discovery to Obama is like sunlight to a vampire.
Right. And that would be everything Obama is hiding. Every nook and crannies from all sources one could think of. Obama would be laid bare.
Another AMERICAN hero steps forward. Thank you Captain!
Will she be granted a discovery motion for Barack Obama's birth records? Not a chance. "My President isn't really my president" isn't an affirmative defense that any presiding officer is going to entertain, let alone grant discovery motion for.
Don’t mess with TEXAS! Is the good doctor captain a gal from Texas? Thank you very much Captain!
I was in the airport today and there were Army youngsters in BDU cammo. I felt so sorry for them. Hussein is a Islamist and any military action in an Islamic country now is folly. HUssein’s Hamas and Muslim Brotherhood moles in the white hut will be leaking intel to our enemies to kill our soldiers.
Sadly the RINOs and many Repubs are cowards and the Dems are far worse. McCain is the biggest disgrace! He sold out POWs and is selling out our military now.
The question is if Obama is Constitutionally legal to give orders to the military? If that’s the essence of the matter to why she refused her orders until verification, You can bet your butt the judge will grant discovery.
Enough question exists to question his ability to hold office.
Obama has the responsibility to prove he is eligible to hold the office. It is a requirement of the Constitution that a any person who becomes POTUS must meet certain criteria, one being NBC. The Document also provides the means in which a person who does not qualify is handled. The proof is on Obama, not the other way - as so many want to contend.
We can hope.
