Posted on 08/31/2010 9:48:24 PM PDT by Man50D
Retired Air Force Lieutenant General Thomas McInerney has supplied an affidavit in support of Army Lieutenant Colonel Terrence Lakin, who faces trial on October 13-15. The retired Air Force three-star is the highest ranking officer yet to lend public support to LTC Lakin. His affidavit acknowledges widespread concerns over the President's Constitutional eligibility and demands the President release his birth records or the court authorize discovery.
McInerneys sworn affidavit was filed in Court-Martial in support of Lakins motions for subpoenas for all of the presidents school records, and for a deposition of the custodian of Obamas birth records in the possession of the State of Hawaii. The Judge has set a hearing in the Court Martial on these motions for this coming Thursday, September 2nd at 11:00 at Ft. Meade, Maryland. All court proceedings are open to the public. The courthouse is located within Ft. Meade at 4432 Llewellyn Avenue, which is on the corner of Llewellyn and Ernie Pyle Road. At the first intersection after the Reece Road gate, you should turn left on to Ernie Pyle Road. The courthouse is approximately 1 mile south of the intersection of Reece Road and Ernie Pyle Road.
LTC Lakin is a physician, and is in his 18th year of service in the Army. He is Board Certified in Family Medicine and Occupational and Environmental Medicine. He has been recognized for his outstanding service as a flight surgeon for year-long tours in Honduras, Bosnia and Afghanistan. He was also awarded the Bronze Star for his service in Afghanistan and recognized in 2005 as one of the Army Medical Departments outstanding flight surgeons. In March of this year, he announced in a video posted on YouTube that he would refuse to obey orders until receiving proof of the Presidents eligibility.

God bless him. No matter of national security is more urgent than getting rid of the faux CIC.
In a sane world, is LTC Lakin really asking for all that much?
These three support Lt. Col. Lakin:
Lt. Gen. Thomas G. McInerney - A retired lieutenant general from the U.S. Air Force
Army Major General (Ret) Jerry Curry - 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.
Maj. Gen. Paul E. Vallely, who served in Vietnam and retired in 1991 from the U.S. Army as deputy commanding general for the Pacific.
This will probably spell the end of those two as military analysts for Foxnews.
If the day ever comes when a court orders 0bongo to show his BC I hope the ruling says "By order of the court Mr. 0bama must plaster his long form birth certificate on his forehead for all the world to see."
IIRC, the Judges originally denied access to the BC based on the fact that those requesting it were not ‘suffering’.
LTC Lakin is, in even the strictest legal sense, suffering, and the heart of the issue is the BC and the testimony of those who handle those documents.
Ergo, there should be only one conclusion.
Can we hope that more military officers will step up to save Our Republic?
Is there any way that civilians can urge more military officers to step up to the plate?
Just asking. I believe I have a need to know.
Seems to me that being the Commander in Chief to US Armed forces requires proper vetting of said Commander in Chief, and if politicians won’t do it, the Military can.
I expect some real surprises from a military court dedicated to “Duty, Honor, Country.”
May God Bless America.
May God Bless America. "
Are you optimistic, or merely hopeful?
God help America.
Does anyone else see this issue coming to a head?I sure as hell hope so.
In this world, this nation, this presidency, all Lakin is asking is what should have been supplied before Obama was nominated to run for the presidency but was apparently never asked, nor supplied.
That judges appointed to see to it that Constitutional law specifically worded to cover candidates for the presidency of this nation repeatedly refuse to proceed with demand for production of proof of eligibility to resolve the issue once and for all is also, in and of itself, highly questionable.
I LOVE Gen. McInerney .. FNC regular!!
The truth will come out. One patriot will eventually come forward with the truth and then it will be impeachment time and exposure of all those who plotted this sham against the American people.
Yeah, it is plastered on BO's forehead.
Get enough 3 and 4 stars in there or a state that wants to see his BC in 2012 and Barry might punch the eject button.

Here is a link to the S.O.C. press release announcing that LTC Lakins motions for deposition of various Hawaiian officials will be heard of Sep 2 at Ft. Meade.
It also provides excerpts for a declaration for a Retired Air ForceAir Force, not ArmyLieutenant General supporting LTC Lakins request for President Obamas birth records.
Some of the declaration is reprinted on the website, but here is the gist:
If [Pres. Obama] is ineligible under the Constitution to serve in that office that creates a break in the chain of command of such magnitude that its significance can scarcely be imagined.
As a practical example from my background I recall commanding forces that were equipped with nuclear weapons. In my command capacity I was responsible that personnel with access to these weapons had an unwavering and absolute confidence in the unified chain of command, because such confidence was absolutely essentialvital in the event the use of those weapons was authorized.
I cannot overstate how imperative it is to train such personnel to have confidence in the unified chain of command.
I couldnt agree more. As to relevance . . .
He and Col. David Hunt are two of my favorites. Haven’t seen LTC McInerney on Fox in a long time.
Yes, Starwise, may God bless him for stepping up.
LTC Lakin update
August 31, 2010
safeguardourconsititution (APF) has an affidavit from LTG T. McInerney in support of LTC Lakins discovery request.
Lawyers interested in the legal merits of the issue will likely find themselves dissatisfied with the affidavit. It is a combination of justification for LTC Lakins contumacy and reasons why the discovery should be granted.
There is no comment on the general failure of most of the rest of the officer corps in continuing to obey unlawful orders. They have not posted the request or motion in support of any request. Once again failing to give full disclosure.
The affidavit appears to also justify the discovery request as a need for public disclosure.
This would be IMHO an abuse of process. The purpose of discovery in a criminal proceeding is to aid the defense, not to aid public disclosure for disclosures sake.
The affidavit states that the military MUST have confidence in the Commander in Chief. There is however no evidence to suggest the military doesnt, merely some individual members.
Paragraph 4., indicates the affiants understanding of why LTC Lakin is wrong.
I have requested the PAO make copies of the motions available on the 2d to those wishing to review or have a copy. That request is pending is the best I can say.
In regard to the affiant:
Retired Air Force General Suggests Strip Searching All Young Muslim Men
We have to use profiling. And I mean be very serious and harsh about the profiling, said retired Lt. General Tom McInerney of the U.S. Air Force, suggesting that the United States adopt the profiling guidelines of Israel in order to protect ourselves from an airline attack.
If you are an 18 to 28-year-old Muslim man then you should be strip searched, he said. If we dont do that, were going to lose an airliner, he explained.
The Pentagons military analyst program
In April 2008 documents obtained by New York Times reporter David Barstow revealed that McInerney had been recruited as one of over 75 retired military officers involved in the Pentagon military analyst program.
Participants appeared on television and radio news shows as military analysts, and/or penned newspaper op/ed columns. The program was launched in early 2002 by then-Assistant Secretary of Defense for Public Affairs Victoria Clarke. The idea was to recruit “key influentials” to help sell a wary public on “a possible Iraq invasion.”
Interesting .. military justice blog providing oppo research on a retired patriot general. Sounds like a Chrissy Matthews or Overthehillmann routine.
Would Obama live up to the code of conduct of the cadets at West Point? Reasonable people without standing want to know.
I’m gonna go with the Ontario BC.
LOL Could I see something in a Latvian BC?
I know you are on top of this - I understand them wanting the BC but, since his father wasn’t born in the USA, Barry is not a natural born citizen.
Did Lukin’s attorney address that?
I agree with him. But we have an administration that won't even call a "terrorist" a TERRORIST! I don't think the General will be invited to the White House.
Nothing but misdirection from that Mil blog.
Oh yes the General has commented as shown below. Because the rest of the officer corps are not following suit does not make the orders that come from Obama as Constitutional and therefore lawful orders. Some people have more courage than others in this matter of conscious. At least two other officers were challenged by their conscious to determine whether Obama was legally the commander-in-chief. LTC Lakin is the one who stepped up to challenge Obama's orders that he believes are unconstitutional and this mil blog argument is a non sequitur.
From McInerneys affidavit - "LTC Lakin has acted exactly as proper training dictates. That training mandates that he determine in his own conscience that an order is legal before obeying it."
They have not posted the request or motion in support of any request. Once again failing to give full disclosure.
A motion for discovery for Obama records? I'm sure it is coming.
Call me and we'll discuss it.
While BHO was bloviating on TV this evening I was playing the recording of Glenn Beck’s program which I had made while the missus and I went out to dinner. But when I would fast-forward through the commercials BHO would come on the screen. There were several instances when I really thought the expression on his face showed angst of some sort; almost as though he was ready to push the Eject button right then. I think the only reason for his speech in the first place was an attempt to change the subject from his BC, and Beck’s Rally on 8-28, etc., etc.
Let’s buy a newspaper add with BO’s picture and multiple paper on his head...
Title: IT”S NOT JUST THE BC MR PRESIDENT!
and then list all of the other documents he has hidden.
If you question any of these you too are a “BIRTHER”!
True, until this evening. The excerpts of the speech that were played in the 11:00 P.M. news had Dear Leader actually saying the T word. I think he is DESPERATE to convince people that he is not a muslim; to take our minds off his BC, to get our minds off the shellacking some of his cohorts have taken in recent Primaries, and that are looming in November; etc., etc..
Only reason for the speach is tha MO wanted to show off the new decor.
Two officers who really love their country. True patriots.
Yippee Ki Yay, nobama!!!!
i MOSTLY agree rather firmly and sternly with you.
However, these traitorous ‘leaders’ for the last 110+ years will likely have worse waiting in the wings unless God prevents such:
I still pray that God removes the puppet thug from the WhiteHouse and the public stage very thoroughly, ASAP
I don’t know how much Alan can be trusted to remain faithful to patriotic principles after being elected. If so, fine with me.
I’d much prefer to see Pail win the Presidency.
I was not happy with her support of McChurian. Still wonder about that.
Yet I support her values etc. strongly.
> “January 2011.” <
It’s just a matter of time. The Truth will be revealed.
And I pray that more and more of the retired “Flag Officers (General/Admiral)” come out in support of LTC Lakin.
And one more question. Can we not possibly think that LtGen MacInerney, MajGen Curry and MajGen Vallely are comparing notes on this issue and not calling other retired Flag Officers to help support LTC Lakin?
The retired Flag Officer community is a small and close knit clic.
The Investigating Officer has already ruled that information pertaining to Obama's eligibility are not relevant to the charged Lakin is facing and turned down defense requests for access to them.
How do you live with yourself defending the fraud Obama? I look forward to the day when the usurper is removed from office and you are thrown-off FreeRepublic.
