Soldier from Greeley won't go to Afghanistan until Obama produces birth certificate (Family O-bots)
The Tribune ^ | April 3, 2010 | Colin Lindenmayer

Posted on 04/03/2010 5:00:30 AM PDT by Smokeyblue

A Greeley native and U.S. Army official has vowed to disobey orders to deploy to Afghanistan until President Barack Obama produces proof he was born in the United States.

Lt. Col. Terry Lakin, who was born in Greeley and graduated from University High School, is asking Obama on an Internet video posted this week to furnish a birth certificate.

“For the first time in all my years of service to our great nation, and at great peril to my career and future, I am choosing to disobey what I believe are illegal orders, including an order to deploy to Afghanistan for my second tour of duty there,” Lakin says in the video.

He later adds, “President Obama, I ask you to respect and uphold the Constitution. Be transparent, and show your honesty and integrity. Release your original signed birth certificate, if you have one, thus proving your birth on American soil, and thus assure the American people you are lawfully eligible to hold the office of the presidency and serve as commander in chief of the armed forces.”

He does not accuse Obama of illegally obtaining office in the video.

Lakin is in his 18th year of active uniform service, according to the video.

Lakin's father, Frank Lakin of Greeley, said he didn't know enough about the situation to comment Thursday afternoon, but he did say his son's video wasn't representative of the family.

“This does not reflect the opinions or the attitude of the family by any means,” Frank Lakin said. “We're Obama supporters.”

hardly a request that is ‘out of order’, some 4 star Generals should have done this on Inauguration Day.

God Bless Lt.Col. Lakin.
He should put his life on the line while Obama doesn’t have to show his true Birth Certificate??
Brave Guy.

Apparently LTC Laken has fallen for the commicRATs defining down of "Natural Born Citizen" to simply being born here.

Thru two wars and most of my adult life in uniform, the one thing I could ALWAYS count was my family’s support. Even when they didn’t especially agree with me they would never have done anything like that. If this is an accurate quote this is one of the saddest things I have ever heard.

The first guy is Major Cook who is a Freeper.

He was an army reservist. They revoked his “voluntary” deployment order then pressured his employer to fire him.

Do a search for Major Cook of Free Republic. It’s all there.

There is a video of Michelle Obama stating that she and Obama visited his home country in Kenya - she was speaking to a group during the Democratic Convention in Denver in 2008 when she made the revelation.Video link: She tells about their visit to her husband's home country at 42 seconds into the video.

Michelle Obama said:June 27, 2008......@ ~42 seconds...
Especially now that we have her saying the following:
 
"Barack has led by example, when we took our trip to Africa and visited his home country in, Kenya."
 
......@ ~42 seconds...

Michelle also told us Obama’s mama was very single when she had him, which calls his parents’ marriage into question as well as his paternity.

I am choosing to disobey what I believe are illegal orders, including an order to deploy to Afghanistan for my second tour of duty there,”

Can someone clarify for me? What constitutes an illegal order? I had thought it was an order that was illegal in content, like "shoot those civilians." I'm no lawyer - is there a different definition of an illegal order?

Lakin is calling his deployment order illegal because he does not believe that Obama is constitutionally eligible to be president. As such, all orders from Obama as CIC are illegal.

“Didnt they retire him so that he couldnt get standing?”

No, he was Army Reserve so they just revoked his orders to deploy (he technically voluntered) so he had no standing for a lawsuit. I just checked and MAJ Stefan Cook is still listed on the Army’s website as being in the Reserve. I am afraid he might have been passed over for promotion though....that would be a shame and not unexpected. IF he was, they will force he to go to the retired reserve when he has 24 years of commissioned service...unless a later board selects him for promotion to Lieutenant Colonel. I hope they do.

I will be curious how they squelch this latest officer from getting a trial where discovery would be granted. I have read posts that suggests they are trying to paint him as nuts.

Frank Lakin - shame on you!!! You can’t even support your son and go as far as to publicly proclaim your loyalty to a man(?) not fit to shine your son’s boots.

Would you go to war and risk your life because a Kenyan citizen told you to? No, you wouldn't. The Kenyan citizens loyalties would be to Kenya first. That's why an American president has to be a natural born citizen. Neither can he have a duo citizenship, because his loyalties are split.
A Kenyan citizen cannot order our troops to do anything.

If the result forces Obama to reveal his BC, then I'm all for it. But I agree with your statement.

No, I wouldn't want to. But my question isn't about that. It's not about what we think military should say, it's about what military law actually says right now about what constitutes an "illegal order." And I don't know the answer - do you have a citation or link?

His family should be ashamed . now WE must be his family and show him as much support as we Freepers can.
He has more integrity in his pinkie toenail than the POS odumbo could ever hope to have
I wish there was also a site to show emotional support beyond sending money

Of course we know how it will turn out. Grrrr I hate that though

I condemned Watada for his actions in refusing to go to Iraq. Praising this soldier would be hypocritical.

It seems a legal order must:
1. be made by an appropriate military superior/authority
2. relate to military duty (i.e. must have something to do with the current operation)
3. not contravene the Constitution or any existing laws (and treaties)

Thanks. Does this mean Lt Col Lakin won’t get hung out to dry, even though the order is not directly from 0bama?
