Highly Decorated Army Surgeon Wants Obama To Prove Citizenship
Press Release ^ | 3/30/1020 | American Patriot Foundation

Posted on 03/31/2010 9:00:21 AM PDT by americanpatriotfoundation

DECORATED ARMY PHYSICIAN REFUSES ALL MILITARY ORDERS BECAUSE PRESIDENT REFUSES TO DOCUMENT HIS CONSTITUTIONAL ELIGIBILITY

Court Martial Likely, Legal Defense Fund Established

Washington, D.C., March 30, 2010. “I am today compelled to make the distasteful choice to invite my own court martial, in pursuit of the truth about the president’s eligibility under the constitution to hold office”, said active duty Army Lt. Col. Terrence Lakin. The American Patriot Foundation, a non-profit group incorporated in 2003 to foster appreciation and respect for the U.S. Constitution, immediately announced it has set up a legal defense fund and will provide Lt. Col. Lakin with a top-flight defense team. Details are available on the foundation’s website, www.safeguardourconstitution.com.

Article II, sec. 1 of the U. S. Constitution explicitly provides that only “natural born” citizens can serve as president and commander-in-chief. Mr. Obama’s continuing refusal to release his original 1961 birth certificate has brought Lt. Col. Lakin to the point where he feels his orders are unlawful, and thus MUST be disobeyed.

Lakin has today informed his superiors that he cannot understand how his oath of office to “preserve, protect and defend the Constitution” does not permit military officers to pursue proof of eligibility from his commander-in-chief. Lt. Col. Lakin’s efforts to seek affirmation of the president’s eligibility have been rebuffed with legal evasions. Given the Obama Administration’s “transparency” initiative, many U.S. citizens are also demanding release of the original birth certificate.

Lakin serves as Chief of Primary Care and Flight Surgeon for the DiLorenzo TRICARE Health Clinic and is lead Flight Surgeon charged with caring for Army Chief of Staff General Casey’s pilots and air crew. His numerous awards and decorations include the Army Flight Surgeon’s Badge, Combat Medical Badge, the Bronze Star Medal, the Meritorious Service Medal, the Army Commendation Medal with three Oak Leaf Clusters, the Army Achievement Medal with two Oak Leaf Clusters, the National Defense Service Medal with Bronze Service Star, the Armed Forced Expedition Medal, the Army Reserve Component Achievement Medal, the Army Service Ribbon, the Overseas Service Ribbon and the NATO service medal.

I have no idea as to why, not be a lawyer nor do I watch them on TV, but Americans have no Constitutional/legal standing to see the POTUS’ birth documents regardless of how the actions of the POTUS effect us. Doesn’t matter anyway. The Constitution is not a living breathing document. It’s dead, Jim.

Hi Non-Seq.

He’s got about 12 months to show his BC before people in his own Party start demanding it because they want an eligible candidate for 2012.

That will be another Historic moment for our Kenyan Chief.

The point about Foreign Student Aid, is that you can't just walk into the Financial Aid Office at your college and say, “Hi, I'm a foreign student. Please give me a small pile of money.” They're going to respond, “Not so fast. What proof do you have that you're actually a foreign student?”

Consider this: I'm an American, living in Thailand; I have a Thai driver's license. Obviously, not just any proof would be acceptable. Obama would have had to produce adoption papers from his Indonesian step-father, or a Kenyan birth certificate, or a Kenyan, British, or Indonesian passport, in order to qualify. Of course, being dutiful little bureaucrats, the Financial Aid office would have made copies of all of his documents, which should still exist today.

"Your views, ODH?"

I don't know either. Any competent counsel, irrespective of hourly rate, would tell him the same thing - that this will only end with his dismissal (a best case scenario), or his conviction at General Court-Martial (a worst case scenario). There are no other legally possible outcomes.

There are civilian implications as well. If he's is found guilty at a General Court-Martial (should one be convened), that conviction is the civilian equivalent of a felony conviction. He would be placing his license to practice medicine in jeopardy, as well. He certainly would no longer be able to prescribe schedule III drugs, and whatever state holds his license might move to revoke it. I'm not completely familiar with the medical licensing standards, but I do believe you cannot hold a medical license if you're convicted of a felony, at least no in the US.

My argument makes perfect sense to those claiming Obama was born in the US but of a british father so he acquired dual citizenship.

That’s the problem with “birthers” there are just so many arguments about why he isn’t qualified. Some make sense others don’t. If he was born in Kenya and we can prove it then yes he is ineligible. But if he’s born in the US but another country decided to give him citizenship (whether at birth or later in life) then it shouldn’t matter unless he took advantage of that citizenship (like applying for foreign student aid or travling on a visa from that country).

Whats on the Horizon :

Somewhere, in the year 2011 or 2012, a politician will make a public announcement in front of a court house that he is providing all Birth documents in accordance with state law to qualify (in that state) for a run for president.

At that moment, he will announce that Obama has refused to release the same documents to comply with the qualification requirements. He will then demand that Obama be omitted from the process because he is not above the law.

The Kenyan/British/Indonesian crap hits the fan within 24 months.

"If you were his counsel, would you run him through a psych eval? "

There wouldn't be much point. Despite what you might see on television, the threshold one must meet to effectively employ an affirmative defense based on mental defect, is VERY high. The likelihood of the Dr. prevailing at trial with such a defense is zero. And, let's face it, such a defense would undercut the very political point he's apparently willing to forfeit his career and his profession to make.

Like I said, it's an awful lot to throw away, to receive nothing in return.

What I was suggesting, in a non eloquent manner, was a possible methodology for this to transition from a judicial proceeding to an administrative proceeding. Of course, this is purely academic because this is such a high profile case.

Biden would be neutered as well as the entire Dem leadership, and many might face jail time.

After the dust settled, the standing of the US internationally would be higher among allies, and of course enemies would hate us no matter what.

Riots? So rioting idiots and thugs should rule what happens as to whether we have a legitimate or illegitimate president? I don’t think the Constiution has a clause or amendment authorizing that. What is it - America follows the “rule of riots” or the “rule of law”?

It would be EXPENSIVE to nullify the shitpile 0kaka has signed?

IMHO, about the only shot "birthers" (and I use that in a descriptive, not a derogatory manner) have is for the 2012 elections, where candidates will *NEED* to provide the long form BC by law in various states.

Please name a state that requires a "long form" birth certificate.

I've caught a number of threads here on FR about states that are working on legislation for it. AZ comes immediately to mind, but don't trust me on that. Hopefully the regs will be in place by 2012.

Don't get me wrong, I'd love to see it happen nationwide. If, for no other reason that we avoid a mess like this again.

But - As close as the elections have been of late, regs like this would only need to be enacted by a couple of states. I don't think candidates could "skip" one, and if they did, it would be an even bigger red flag, IMHO.

However....I should add that really, do you think that it makes a difference at this point?

If BO produced a long-form BC, in triplicate, notarized, and signed in blood by 12 upstanding Conservative Republican Witnesses as "Certified Authentic".....how long would it take people here on FR to say "Looks fake to me." and start questioning the motives of whoever released/signed/notarized it?

The time to get the BC issue resolved has passed- at least for the 2008 elections, and likely BO as well - that horse has long since gotten out of the barn.

IMHO, not that you asked....I think that birthers are asking the wrong question. "Where's the BC?" ain't it.

I talked to my Dad a bit about this. Per dad (and any freepers who've got 1st hand knowledge, feel free to chime in.....) back in the mid 60's, air travel was much simpler. If you had a ticket, you just got on a plane - no security, no questions asked, etc etc etc.

Problem was that flights were fewer and farther between, and jet travel - especially international jet travel - was prohibitively expensive. So I ask, how does BO's Mom, an unwed, pregnant, 17-year-old girl, get to jet-set all over the country, to Canada, to Cuba, to Kenya, to Hawaii? Where'd the money come from? Was she just a high-priced callgirl with an affinity for Marxist revolutionaries? Who was backing her?

We might not ever be able to get our hands on a honest-to-goodness, authentic, long-form BC. But, if those questions can be answered, I think that it's possible to figure out what's on it.

Just my $0.02. Taking the tinfoil hat off now....

Yes, there are a few states that have proposed legislation demanding a birth certificate, but none have been explicit in demanding  a "long form," for the simple reason that such a demand would be shot down by the courts, since the "short form" is now regularly issued by many states, and is recognized as legal proof of birth by Federal agencies, including the SSA and the DOS.

Since this precise tactic has already been tried (Captain Connie Rhodes, MD - also a doctor) and failed (she ended up reporting for for deployment and shipped out to Iraq. Orly Taitz garnered a $20,000 fine), what can he possibly hope to gain?

Am I missing something? Is there any difference between this case and Captain Rhodes’ case which could change the outcome?

Natural born means that you are the child of parents who were born citizens of the USA and you were also born in the USA, or its territories.

Not so. A parent, or parents, could have been naturalized. They do not have to be "native born." The requirement is that they are citizens at the time of birth.

I think you could also be born to US citizens who were serving overseas in the employ of the US government.

Also incorrect. A child of two American citizens, overseas, whether in the military of not, would become citizens via the naturalization process. Thousands upon thousands of military dependants born in germany, for example, have dual citizenship.

McCain, who was born in the Republic of Panama, has his very own statute in the US Code:

Sec. 303. [8 U.S.C. 1403] Persons born in the Canal Zone or the Republic of Panama on or after February 26, 1904

(b) Any person born in the Republic of Panama on or after February 26, 1904, and whether before or after the effective date of this Act, whose father or mother or both at the time of the birth of such person was or is a citizen of the United States employed by the Government of the United States or by the Panama Railroad Company, or its successor in title, is declared to be a citizen of the United States.

The easiest way to understand "natural born" citizen is this, if your citizenship depends on a statute, you are a citizen, but not a "natural born" citizen.

Some info about the UCMJ, Article 138 that Larkin used and cited in his complaint.

"The UCMJ, Article 138, is another provision for protecting individual rights. Members of the Armed Forces who believe they are wronged by their commanding officer may request redress under the provisions of Article 138.

A member may use Article 138 when a discretionary act or failure to act by a commander adversely affects the member personally. Examples include acts that violate law or regulation; those that exceed the legitimate authority of the commander; ones that are arbitrarily, capricious, or an abuse of discretion; or those that clearly apply administrative standards unfairly...."

Do you have a link to such a FOIA request, including the information that was allegedly released.

It is highly unlikely (to the point of legally impossible) to secure the documents of a private citizen, a private university and a private scholarship fund with a FOIA request. FOIA is a government transparency statute, inapplicable to private enterprise or organizations.

Moreover, even if the scholarship fund was a government fund, or if Occidental was a public university, it would also be highly unlikely that FOIA coul successfully employed to acquire such materials, as they (admissions materials) would clearly be protected by the Privacy Act of 1974. FOIA requests cannot - by statute - break the protections of the 1974 Privacy Act.

Not to sure why you aren’t getting it. I’ll make it simple.

Mommy and Daddy must BOTH be born in the USA in order for Baby to be considered a natural born citizen of the USA.
The reason is so there is NO allegiance to any other country for a presidential candidate.

See how smart our forefathers were and how evil are those who turned a blind eye for Barry. They deliberately went against Our Constitution and we get an impostor with NO allegiance to the USA.

"Mommy and Daddy must BOTH be born in the USA in order for Baby to be considered a natural born citizen of the USA."

In your opinion, your crazy, crazy opinion, as no court has ever held such a statement to be true, nor is there a definition of "natural born citizen" found in the US Constitution.

As for your explicit definition, there's not a law school in the country, nor a state bar exam that adopts your definition. Perkins v. Elg and Schneider v. Rusk both use the terms "natural born citizen" and "native born citizen" interchangeably. In Perkins, the court affirms a lower court decision that a young woman who was born in this country to two parents who clearly were not born in this country, as a "natural born citizen".

The court below, properly recognizing the existence of an actual controversy with the defendants (Aetna Life Ins. Co. v. Haworth, 300 U. S. 227), declared Miss Elg "to be a natural born citizen of the United States," and we think that the decree should include the Secretary of State as well as the other defendants.
It seems as if your opinion isn't validated by any court decision. How about that.

"However, mommy and daddy where US citizens at the time Ms. Elg’s birth in the United States."

Yes, they were. But, that's not what he said. He said...

"Mommy and Daddy must BOTH be born in the USA in order for Baby to be considered a natural born citizen of the USA"

Which is patently absurd, and easily refuted with just a elementary understanding of American Constitutional Law.
