Radio host Boyles: Birther Lakin no punk; O’Reilly a liar
Colorado Independent ^ | 4/14/10 | John Thomasic

Posted on 04/14/2010 9:44:32 AM PDT by pissant

Denver talk-radio host Peter Boyles interviewed Lietenant Colonel Terrence Lakin’s 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 doesn’t 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, he’s hardly a punk, he’s done his [tours of duty] in the past and now he’s 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. It’s 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 military’s 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

“The birth certificate is only one of so many documents. It’s a series of documents, a series of certifications that have been blocked, hidden… medical records, baptism, college and school records, passports, adoption papers– these are all hidden away,” said Boyles.

Amen brother!

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.

Lt Col Lakin may face serious charges, but if his lawyer is any good at all, he will say that Lt Col Lakin's oath REQUIRES him to support and defend The Constitution.

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.

Boyles is not a conservative talker, although these days it's tough to put him in any category. He does have a nose for a good talk story, so it's really interesting he's on this one.

It warms my heart to se an officer of such high rank make a stand. The inertia is increasing, and it looks like there will be a critical mass soon, with the MSM forced to come out guns ablazin' with a disinfo campaign designed to malign the officer (and indeed ALL Oath Keepers).

Another thought:

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.

The bottom line to obama is...

MTHERE IS NO REASON NOT TO SHOW IT.


Of course, he has nothing to lose, but he presidency, and his freedom...obama's I mean.

But I don't think Lakin will go to prison, or there will even be a trial...for then "discover" would kick in and the obama people don't what that. They'll just quietly discharge him and send him home...the precedent has already been set for that.

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.

Evidently he didn't, which is a good thing. He has no moral justification to say anything to an honorably serving active duty member of the U.S. military except, "Thank you sir (or ma'am)".

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?

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.

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.

O’Reilly lied. He said he had seen the evidence.

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!

BOR, is of course, a Democrat operative.

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.

Actually, resigning his commission would be a surrender to the usurper-in-chief. The officer can assert a defense of supporting and defending the constitution at trial which he would never have the chance to assert otherwise.

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.

"O’Reilly has never served a single day in the military.."

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.

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.

Thanks for the ping DC and thanks for posting pissant. Boyles is one of the few out there that has the guts to keep this thing alive. I missed Hemenway this morning, but have heard her on another occasion on Boyles' program. She doesn't sound like a punk either. I'll keep my fingers crossed that eventually something comes to light. I would love all the talk show hosts that referred to people that are suspicious of Obama's missing documents as nutters have to eat crow.

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
