  • Movie About Lt. Col. Terry Lakin's Battle To Get Obama's Birth Certificate Released In The Works

    For Immediate Release 2/13/2013 There is substantial interest in creating a film adaptation of the Terry Lakin Story, "OFFICER'S OATH." This is a poignant, heroic story that must not be forgotten, or falsely relegated to the "conspiracy theory" chapter in the annals of our national history. Terry knowingly sacrificed his military career, endured a court-martial, and ultimately spent nearly half a year in Leavenworth Prison simply for standing up for the Constitution he pledged to uphold and defend. His story is detailed in the book "An Officer's Oath," which is recommended reading for anybody who reveres this country and the...

    The examples of disregard for the Constitution, the rule of law, and the authority of the legislative and judicial branches of the federal government from Barack Obama (or whatever his name is) and his administration are staggering in number, and one example of his lawlessness has been on display since before the election. I understand that the fix is entirely in on Obama’s lack of proof of his eligibility to hold the office of President. Before the election, there were people demanding that he prove he is a natural born citizen. He never has, and I know he never will.The...

Terrence Lakin, who was court-martialed in December 2010 and spent five months in prison for disobeying orders due to Obama’s questionable eligibility, was released from Ft. Leavenworth today and appeared on Sandy Springs Radio from 7:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. EDT. The U.S. Army had ruled that the military was “no place for Barack Obama’s presidential eligibility to be evaluated” and had refused Lakin discovery as to whether or not Obama was eligible to serve as president and commander-in-chief. Lakin’s request for clemency was denied last month, but he was released one month short...

The request was for information that each member of the public is asked to produce every day for various purposes. Following a USA Today poll, showing that only 38% of the American people believe he was definitely born in the US, Obama felt he had no choice.

His ice-cold indifference to the tragic fate of Lt. Colonel Terry Lakin, now rotting in prison because Obama refuses to release his birth certificate. Lt.

    A retired military officer who pursued all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court a legal challenge to Barack Obama's occupancy of the Oval Office says the conviction and sentencing of an active duty officer who raised similar questions signals the end of the "rule of law" in the United States. Cmdr. Charles Kerchner's legal case, handled by attorney Mario Apuzzo, alleged that Congress failed its constitutional duty to examine the legitimacy of a successful candidate during the Electoral College vetting process on Capitol Hill. The Supreme Court ultimately decided not to hear arguments, leaving standing a lower court's dismissal.

    If his sentence is approved by the convening authority, Lakin’s case, because it includes dismissal, will be sent for automatic review by the Army Court of Criminal Appeals (ACCA), which has the authority to overturn his convictions. Maj. Gen. Karl Horst, Lakin's commanding general, could also grant Lakin clemency. If the ACCA upholds Lakin’s convictions, he can appeal to the Court of Appeals for the Armed Forces (CAAF). If the CAAF agrees to hear Lakin’s appeal but denies it, Lakin can appeal to the U.S. Supreme Court, which rarely grants review for appeals of military justice system decisions.

    Army physician Terrence Lakin pleaded guilty Tuesday in a sad mess that shows how some extreme conservatives are repelled by America's first black president. Lt. Col. Lakin acknowledged in a military court-martial that he refused to obey orders to deploy to Afghanistan because he thinks President Obama's Hawaii birth certificate is a fake, thus Obama fails to meet the U.S. Constitution's requirement that each president must be "a natural born citizen." Politics is bizarre. Millions of Americans don't bother to vote, while others care strongly about national leadership -- and a few become so fervent they enter the Twilight Zone....

    An Army doctor who disobeyed orders to deploy to Afghanistan because he questioned President Barack Obama's eligibility for office told a jury he was wrong to do so and would now deploy if he could. Lt. Col. Terrence Lakin of Greeley, Colo., was speaking during a court martial hearing Wednesday. Earlier, the jury convicted Lakin of missing a flight that would have gotten him to Fort Campbell, Ky., for his eventual deployment, and Lakin has already pleaded guilty to another charge against him. Lakin gave his statement to the jury before the members decide his eventual punishment.

    At the very least, the administration has wasted a huge amount of the nation’s time. At worst, Obama is in fact not eligible to be President. Would that be uncomfortable? Would it be inconvenient? Would it be problematic? Of course. But this nation has survived many traumatic events in its past and would survive this. The Constitution is the supreme law of the land- and it must be upheld.

    When Lt. Col. Terry Lakin, MD walks out of the chamber where he has faced a court-martial this week, he will emerge -- regardless of the verdict -- a towering American hero. Nothing like the stupendous display which he has mounted -- of principled, sustained self-sacrifice and fearless defiance -- has been seen in decades on the American political stage. Together with the peril of actual battlefield engagement, it ranks alongside the greatest courageous stances even of the American Revolution itself. Patrick Henry, Nathan Hale: those kinds of stances.

    He can’t handle the truth. At least not while he’s facing the brig. Lt. Col. Terry Lakin of the Army had a motley crew of frustrated Birthers at his court-martial here on Tuesday. The decorated Pentagon doctor from Colorado became the movement’s hero when he went on YouTube in March to brazenly urge President Obama to show “honesty and integrity” by releasing his “original signed birth certificate, if you have one.” He vowed to disobey what he called “illegal orders” to deploy to Afghanistan because he did not regard Obama as a legitimate commander in chief.

    His new lawyer -- who has not been working with us -- convinced Terry that by changing his strategy and abandoning any argument about Obama's eligibility, he would be able to plead for mercy tomorrow when he is sentenced. Terry was able today, and will be able tomorrow, to explain that he was motivated by his concerns about eligibility, but of course by pleading guilty he abandons any opportunity to appeal, and thus any chance that the appellate courts would reverse Judge Lind's rulings. The Lakin case will now never provide an answer to the questions the nation has as...

    The Army lieutenant colonel who refused to deploy to Afghanistan because he won't accept orders from President Obama, whom he considers unqualified to be commander in chief, has pleaded guilty to one charge against him. Lt. Col. Terrence Lakin pleaded guilty Tuesday to not reporting to Fort Campbell, Ky., for his required deployment to Afghanistan, NBC News reported. Lakin, a doctor and 17-year soldier, believes Obama wasn't born in the United States, and therefore does not meet the constitutional requirements to be president.

    FORT MEADE, Md. — Even if Lt. Col. Terrance Lakin can prove that the president isn’t an American citizen, the 17-year soldier will still be going to jail. Lakin, an Army physician who refused deployment to Afghanistan earlier this year because he believes Barack Obama cannot legally be president, will face up to 18 months in prison and dismissal from the service after pleading guilty Tuesday to charges of refusing his immediate commanders’ orders during his protest of the president.
