Second General Backs Lakin Says President Should Produce Birth Certificate
The Greeley Gazette ^ | 8/9/10 | Jack Minor

Posted on 08/10/2010 1:15:44 PM PDT by jamese777

A second General has come out in support of former Greeley resident Lieutenant Colonel Terry Lakin, who is challenging in court President Obama’s eligibility to be President, saying a good leader would gladly produce the documentation and put this issue to rest.

This past Friday, Lt. Col Lakin attended a military hearing to face several charges including missing a movement. Following the hearing, Lakin was ordered not to speak to the press and was immediately taken by military escort back to Walter Reed Medical Center without even being permitted to speak to his lawyer.

Lakin is being represented by both military and civilian counsel. Margaret Hemenway, spokeswoman for Lt. Col. Lakin said one of his attorneys Paul Rolf Jensen is considering filing a complaint over the manner his client was treated following the hearing.

Army Major General (Ret) Jerry Curry a decorated combat veteran has issued statement saying he agrees with Lakin that the President should provide proof of eligibility. Curry served as Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense for the Carter Administration, as Press Secretary to the Secretary of Defense for the Reagan Administration, and has worked in international relations, public affairs, management, aviation, and research and development.

General Curry lamented that members of the military were having to raise the issue “It shouldn’t be the Lieutenant Colonels, Sergeants and Generals in the Army it should be the Congressman and Senators on both sides of the issue asking this man to step up to the plate” and provide the proof to the American people. Curry expressed concern for Lakin telling the Gazette “the administration will do its best to destroy him personally.”

I bet there won’t be many active generals saying that.

saying a good leader ...

And here we see the misconception in this line of reasoning.

I’m all for pursuing the BC, but nothing’s gonna remove Baraq before Jan 2013.

Even if we get a Republican congress this fall, they won’t have the guts to pitch him out.

To the extent that it keeps the Baraqqis off balance, it’s fun to watch.

Producing ID is nothing new. Getting onto base, when cops pull you over, getting on an airplane, etc

Expecting that our political leaders adhere to the Constitution is a given.

As for the drive-by media trying to destroy the colonel... Never happen. He’ll always have a place to stay... He’ll, I’d put him up if he needed it

“And here we see the misconception in this line of reasoning.”

But it’s an excellent rhetorical point, for who can dispute it? So long as Obama fails to product the long form BC, people are quite justified in questioning whether he is a good leader in general or how much he cares about the military in particular.

No Democrat can advance a coherent argument about why withholding the long form BC is a good idea or justifiable. If there’s truly something so embarrassing that the president would rather a decorated military officer go to jail for 4 years than reveal it, then that makes him susceptible to all sorts of blackmail from our enemies. It also makes him look like a weenie to world leaders.

He was elected to arguably the toughest job in America: he ought to man up and accept some of the consequences that come from holding such an important office and its attendant responsibilities, as he and his wife surely have amply benefited from its perks.

This doesn’t surprise me. Larry Johnson of NoQuarter, who has inside contacts because of his former CIA work, wrote an article several months ago in which he says that top military officials are requiring Obama to personally sign off on their orders.

We can’t post NoQuarter articles at FR, otherwise I’d post it. Whatever the reason, the fact that military official are requiring Obama’s signature on orders speaks volumes (to me) about this administration. If the military doesn’t trust him, he can’t be trusted.

Now you’re Yoda!!

Did you know that Obama has a bolt hole?

He gave $23Million to Kenya so they could produce a new national constitution.

This document has received a publicity state-side due to allowing legal abortion for the first time in that nation’s history. Something ignored by U.S.A. journalists and pundits alike is that this constitution changed the eligibility requirements for Kenya’s presidency so that now Barak Hussein Obama II can run for president there!

I wonder how many billions he has drawn off of stimulus and TARP funds, channeling that cash into numbered bank accounts around the world for his later use.

So, master Yoda, what think you?

I think you underestimate his narcasism by a very high degree. Obama gets a sense of delight by denying the people his birth certificate, and would do so - even if it meant that a life could be saved.

Yes, he thinks he is THAT important. It’s all about HIM, it’s always been about him, and it will always be about him.

The BEST hope for America is to prove this bastard is an illegitimate President.

It would call into question the legality of his appointments and any laws he has enacted, in addition to removing his Marxist Muslim Butt from the Oval Office in disgrace.

If he knowingly CONCEALED the status of his lack of qualifiction, he may be subject to criminal or civil penalties.

Curry said as a leader the President should “look the American people in the eye” and say “I am under a cloud because there are some folks that think I am illegitimate. If you will tell me what you think I need to provide to cause you to throw this mess out the window, and to understand that I am legitimate then I will provide what you folks want because the most important thing is this country and carrying out the constitution.”

An honorable man and a real leader would have put this to rest a long time ago.

Obama can’t.

You are absolutely right! If he could he would, if for no other reason than to embarrass those who doubt, but he can't because he is not a natural born citizen and he and all his handlers know it.

I suspect the reason the military whisked Lakin straight to Walter Reed was to put him in the psych ward and claim he is crazy. Sad to say but that is not uncommon in the military and may be coming to a city near you under Obamacare.

If he is not a US Citizen, then we have a serious problem. We have Felony charges for every one who helped commit the fraud, and we have “The Chosen One” humiliated and unceremoniously thrown out of office.

I for one, question whether a fraud of this magnitude could be perpetrated.

However, the ONLY reason to withhold it is narcisism.

For two retired Generals, yes.

“If Tea Party groups are to maximize their influence on policy, they must now begin the difficult task of disassociating themselves from cranks and conspiracy nuts. This includes 9/11 deniers, ‘birthers’ who insist Barack Obama was not born in the U.S., and militia supporters espousing something vaguely close to armed rebellion.”

All that have access can aid transparency by posting all of Obamas records on line.

I worry that the birth certificate flap is being used by Obama to distract us from other issues, such as his citizenship, passports, and college loans.

Our soldiers are the ones at risk if he is not a legitimate commander in chief, and other governments decide to charge our military with “war crimes”.

Please tell me I am just a worry-wort, and that this could never happen!

Lots of things, in fact. What about the payments to black farmers from the Dept. of Ag? I read that there were way more claims than there were black farmers, and that Sherrod and Obama were instrumental in doling out the money. Is that ever going to be investigated?
