Skip to comments.Radio host Boyles: Birther Lakin no punk; O’Reilly a liar
Posted on 04/14/2010 9:44:32 AM PDT by pissant
Denver talk-radio host Peter Boyles interviewed Lietenant Colonel Terrence Lakins spokesperson Margaret Hemenway Tuesday, the second day in a row as the birther showdown unfolds in Washington. Boyles has admitted he is fascinated by the story of Greeley native Lakin, a decorated 18-year Army medic who refuses to deploy for the second time to Afghanistan because he doesnt fully believe Pres. Obama is a natural born citizen of the United States. Lakin is the latest and highest ranking of a handful of soldiers who have subscribed to the mostly right-wing theory that Obama has hidden or falsified the usual documents that would prove his citizenship and that he has spent hundreds of thousands of dollars lawyering up to protect their secrecy. Boyles, at the very least a semi-believer in the conspiracy himself, clearly admires the man the media is now calling Colonel Birther.
Lakin is risking everything this guy, hes hardly a punk, hes done his [tours of duty] in the past and now hes willing to call [the president] out on it. He throws it all away. He loses all his benefits and retirement pay and goes to prison for hard labor. Its not a punk thing by any stretch.
According to reports, the Army is considering charging Lakin with a host of crimes, including missing movement, for not appearing in Fort Campbell Monday as ordered to deploy overseas, and conduct unbecoming an officer. It is highly likely, given the precedent established in related trials, that Lakin will be stripped of his rank and hauled off to the militarys Leavenworth high security prison in Kansas, where he could be sentenced to hard labor for years.
Some see Lakin not as hero or martyr but as a tragic victim of the poisoned partisan

This issue will continue to grow. At some point it will reach a critical mass. The socialist media will no longer be able to suppress it at that point.
O’Reilly has never served a single day in the military as far as I can tell. Before he can call a soldier who’s willing to throw away his life rather than obey an illegal order a “punk”, maybe he should stop to think that he’s never seen fit to take the time to obey a single order of any kind.
Hey! O’reilly said that he investigated, and that it’s bogus!
Who the hell are we to question Bill O?
I mean, come on...
Following the orders of someone usurping the office of President is contrary to that oath. These orders are illegal, and there is precedent - My Lai - where it was clearly established that officers have the duty to disobey illegal orders.
If 0bama qualifies under the natural born provision of The Constitution, then he must present proof, or drop all charges.
There’s a punk in this article and it’s not Lt. Col. Laken.
BOR hasn’t investigated sh*t
Boyles, whoever he is, apparently has more balls than most of the so called conservative gum flappers.
O’Reilly should be ashamed of himself!
BOR is a big disappointment. Methinks he was bought off by a large entity, maybe the Saudis. that is the only way I can make sense of his epic shift. He was always a bit of a tool (Anyone who says to outlaw the death penaly in favor of letting convicts battle to the death in Alaska is a tool), but now he is a major toolbox. He has dissapointed me for the last time; I give him no traction.
He’s also risking the live of our troops over there that have need of an experienced doctor. Why didn’t he do this as soon as he knew of Obama or after his tour? I think it’s wrong and unfair to our servicemen.
> “BOR hasnt investigated sh*t” <
Not to mention that BOR is a bully and a pervert. He had that sexual harrassment case against him settled out of court.
Big $$$ I bet to keep the lady quiet.
I’m done watching that punk BOR.
We’ve got to take a stand, as individuals, it is the only way we can save this Nation.
Where did O'Reilly call him a punk?
“Who the hell are we to question Bill O?”
Better than the socialist scumbag that he is!!!
BOR is a big disappointment.
I gave up on him a long time ago.
I would have loved to see Lt. Col. Lakin’s commanding officer back him up by following suit. THAT would have made a statement!
Oh cut it out. There are other medical personnel available, and one will take his place. Good grief.
He’s fighting a good fight, and he’d doing it on Constitutional grounds.
Bill is notoriously miisinformed and uninformed about a host of issues. Clearly, his research team lacks credibility.
I know Beck dismisses those who pursue the birth certificate...
..but has Beck made comment on Lt Col Lakin????....does anyone know.
Lol, he is a true ignoramus.
I pretty much quit watcing him after he got Obama’s poop all over his nose.
I do occassionally turn the show on to see Megyn Kelly make a fool out of him.
What doesERO’S Handles know about that Punk, William O’Reilly?The Overhyperventilated GASBAG who spends most of his time with his Nose stuck in ZERO’S Disgusting BUTT!
The "O'Reilly a liar" part evidently refers to O'Reilly claiming to have seen the evidence proving Zero's alleged birth in Hawaii. When pressed, BOR admitted that he hadn't seen it, but his staff had. The story deteriorated from there.
Glenn Beck, OTOH, calls birthers "morons". Of course, Beck thinks that Mitt Romney is "the guy who's gonna save America".
Nope, I don’t approve of someone, no matter the rank, shirking his duty to the troops. I think it comes before his principles. Passing his medical responsibilities off to another is not right in my book, it still takes one doctor with good experience out of the pivture. He should have started this as soon as he found out about or had questions about Obama or resigned his commision. Why wait until this March? He could have refused orders to the Pentagon couldn’t he?
Thanks for finding this, Pissant. Heard the show. Boyles is the best locally, here in Denver.
Boyles current page: mayor of Denver, who is running for Senate, called Van Jones, the marsixt, a “rock star”. caught on tape.
Just perhaps,but logically, that is exactly what happened. The Lt.Col. kept seeing all the evidence grow,public info if you prefer, until he finally made a decision for himself that the truth was not being told and he was at a personal point of time of ignoring or serving his conscience and his oath to the Constitution. I see nothing that he has been or even now is a dishonorable soldier. That there are not plenty of other MD’s to service our troops is a facetious argument.
Oreilly is an ruthless enemy to the conservative movement. Did you ever hear oreilly’s hateful tirade against conservatives on talk radio?
Go to youtube.com and enter “mark levin rips o’reilly” into the search bar to hear oreilly refer to us all as “a bunch of right wing kool aid drinking idiots and liars.”
Levin’s response to oreilly is on the same video clip and it is awesome.
I don’t think so, I think it’s wrong to make others do those things you were trained, commisioned and paid to do.
LTC Lakin’s CO is a COL who earned the CMH. Too bad that Lakin’s CO is more of a careerist and obamanista than hero these days.
Where is the patriotism to stand up for what is right?
Guess that went out the window the instant Lakin’s CO put his colonel rank on. Lakin’s CO would rather cover his ass than listen to Lakin.
Not one of these fools can produce any evidence of what hospital Barack was born in!!! Hussein's own press secretary lied before a national audience when questioned as to why Barack will not release his long form birth certificate. Robert Gibbels was told by a reporter in a White House presser that 400,000 plus people signed a petition for the release of the birth record... Gibbels stated the "birth certificate" was released (a flat out lie) and laughed at the reporter and walked off. Not one other reporter in the room had the stones to call Gibbels a liar. The media is a partner in the lie!
Where did you see that he was awarded the Medal of Honor?
Never mind, I found it.
in a previously posted article on this website.
He has never supported a Republican candidate for anything, no matter who the opponent was. He admits it. He is an Obama man, lock, stock, and barrel. Anyone watching his laughingly sychophantic interview of the Prepostor can see that!
BOR himself is a marketing ploy, the purpose of which is to keep white, Catholic men, 35-65, voting Democrat. Perhaps he does it well enough to earn the enormous sums he is paid. "Fair and balanced," is, though, a brilliant marketing trick for BOR, which I am willing to bet is not his idea, because he is extremely ignorant, and perhaps even a bit stupid.
Either way, the man is a Democrat. Ask him. Tim Russert, without the brain.
There is not one officer in a million who would risk everything on principle as this man has done.
History will record those who stood against Obama, the fraud and tyrant, as the brave ones. Those who submitted to this dirt-bag, liar in the White House will always be known as collaborators in tyranny and facilitators in the loss of liberty of the American people.
This isn't about a birth certificate.
This is about a tyrant with no respect for the constitution. He has unconstitutionally asserted powers not granted to the president, the congress or to the federal government by our founding document.
Have you heard Bill bragging about being a teacher when he was younger? Back during Vietnam you'd lose your draft deferment when you finished college. A lot of guys would teach until they were 26 when they were no longer draftable. Bill taught until he got a high lottery number then he got on with his life. When someone of Bill O'Reilly's age talks about being a former teacher that almost always means draft dodger.
The article (like most others) perpetuates the myth that the issue is the province of the “right wing.” It might be now, but it didn’t start out that way. It tracks back to Hillary Clinton supporters during the primaries.
What is the punk Obamao hiding? That’s what O’Reilly should be asking.
No, this is about a commisioned officer that is refusing an order and depriving troops of his experience as a combat doctor.
Yes, one will take his place. Some other flight surgeon who just did a 15-18 month tour will be told to pack his bags. Or some other flight surgeon who's anxiously waiting to get back to his family will be told he's gotta stick around a while. And whoever is "voluntold" to step up and fill Lakin's spot is a true patriot.
Lakin is weaseling out of his deployment. He's no different than those service members who squirmed away from their commitments due to "Bush's illegal war" and he deserves nothing but contempt and disgust.
For those that would like to listen to Boyles' in the morning, he is usually on the documentgate every morning (mountain time) 5 to 9.
Officers swear an oath to protect and defend the Constitution but not to obey the orders of the president. The enlisted oath contains the Constitution provision plus obey the orders of the president and officers over them. Lt. Col Lakin consideres any orders from obama to be illegal, which I would also agree
Col United States Army (ret)
