Army Surgeon Goes Birther: ‘I Will Disobey’ Obama’s ‘Illegal Orders’

April 1, 2010

(ChattahBox)—-It’s hard to believe this isn’t an April Fool’s joke. But alas, it seems legit. A group named the American Patriot Foundation, owner of the birther conspiracy Web site Safeguard Our Constitution, is promoting an all out, insane birther blitz. The birther campaign is fronted by Lt. Col. Terry Lakin, an active-duty Army surgeon, who made a video with the perplexing announcement that he intends to disobey all orders from his commanders, until President Obama produces a birth certificate proving he is a U.S. citizen.

Terry Lakin is described on the Web site, as Chief of Primary Care and Flight Surgeon for the DiLorenzo TRICARE Health Clinic and the site displays a long list of awards and decorations. Why would a decorated officer, who served in the Army for 18-years suddenly, join a group of deranged birther conspiracists risking everything? The answer isn’t clear, but his deployment orders to Afghanistan in February may have precipitated his bizarre behavior.

According to the Web site:

“For well over a year, LTC Lakin has asked through his chain of command and his Congressional delegation for proof that President Obama is Constitutionally eligible to serve as his Commander-in-Chief. He has explained to his superiors that he cannot understand how his Oath of Office to protect and defend the Constitution does not allow military officers to pursue this proof of eligibility.”

In his three-minute video, which directs viewers to the site Safeguard Our Constitution, which is seeking donations for Lakin’s legal defense, Lakin questions Obama’s constitutional legitimacy to be President and demands that he produce his birth certificate proving he was born in the U.S., “if you have one,” clarifies Lakin:

“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.

Lakin continues with his dramatic declaration that he would willingly risk a court martial, so as not to be made to follow the “illegal orders” of President Obama:

“I have no choice, but the distasteful one, of inviting my own court martial. For the first times in all my years of service to our great nation and at great peril to my career and future, I am choosing to disobey of what I believe are illegal orders, including an order to deploy to Afghanistan for my second tour of duty.”

The American Patriot Foundation/ Safeguard Our Constitution, is seeking $50,000 “to assemble a top-flight legal defense team” for Lakin. Perhaps birther queen Orly Taitz, DDS, Esq., is available. And Lakin can get his teeth cleaned to boot.

    If I’m Obama this is the point where I finally succumb and show the world the proof (provided I really have it). Then I immediately court-martial this guy for gross incompetence.

    At least that is what would make sense. Chances are that won’t happen, since the stuff that makes sense NEVER seems to happen. Ever.

    This whole argument is inane. If you or your parents lose your original birth certificate, then you write to the state government and ask for an official copy. States do not send out the original long-form copies. They send Certificates of Live Birth, which verifies the individuals name, the PLACE of birth, the parents and date of birth. There is an official seal and it is signed by the head of the state health department. President Obama has released this exact document, which has been verified by both health officials in Hawaii and the Governor of that state. In addition, TWO notices in the paper list him being born there. What do you think they did? Expect their black son was going go grow up and be president in 40 years, so they planted these entries? The whole idea is inane that there would be such a conspiracy.

    What a douche bag, he questions the legitimacy of Obama’s birth certificate because the President is BLACK that’s all. But would he had questioned John McCain birth certificate and right to be President( born in Panama). I don’t think so, since McCain is white no one would have questioned his right to be President or his “Patriotism”. Those Truthers, Birthers or Tea Partier I’ve got one word for all of you. You are all a bunch of “HATERS”. Get a life and move on.

    Conspiracy theorist are nuts. There is nothing new about this guy, and this demonstrates conspiracy theorist can be well educated. There are two types, the strong believers and the true believers. This army general is a strong believers. Those who pretend to ask real questions or fake being reasonable are true believers. Don’t let either of them trick you. There is no mystery about Obama’s birth, absolutely none. He was born in Hawaii, and that is the end of inquiries about. Anyone, who asks questions just refuses to accept the truth or is trying to play ignorant. this includes the truthers and others conspiracy theorists.

    Komax King: Are you a flipping idiot? First of all he isn’t “black”. He is a mullado (which, incase your moronic brain is not informed enough due to the clear over use of meth) means he is half white and half black. He didn’t have to challenge McCain’s birth certificate because: (1) McCain is not our president and (2) the Senate had hearings about McCain’s birth certificate before the election and found it to be legit. No Senate hearings were held for Obama’s birth certificate. Catch up you racist!

    LTC Terry Lakin is a true hero for taking our place in front of the firing squad.

    As much as I am for Lakin, now matter what he does, he will never see a birth certificate. Lets take a legal look. As ex decorated military myself, I received many orders. They were never signed by the President, but by some general officer. Lakinn is wrong in refusing, because his orders were not issued by Obamination, but by the Army. Although Obama is supposedly the supreme commander, Lakin did not receive his deployment orders from Obamination. He may file a motion for discovery of the birth certificate in his court martial trial, and it will be denied, because it is not relevant. Denied because it is not relevant to the fact that Obama did not sign the orders and did not issue them. Some general did and :Lakin is liable for disobeying them. Moreover, theArmy by now I am sure will turn this into a star chamber proceeding, because Obama will not be brought down. He is the banksters number one puppet. Another thing that you need to realize, Obama is not president of the united States of America the country, nor has any president been since 1933. He is president of THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, INC., the corporation that manages the bankruptcy of the country, united States of America since the Internal Revenue Act and Federal reserve Acts of 1933. This is when Roosevelt sold all of us down the river, and took the power to coin out money from the congress and gave it to the Federal Reserve, which is the Corporation, UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, INC. Do you not understand that Obama, by fraud, smoke and mirriors is not president of the country the united States of America, but of the management corporation, THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA. You do not have to be a U.S. Citizen to be president of a corporation. Wake up sheeple, while you were sleeping, the bankers and politicians stole this country right out from under you and never fired a shot. Getting rid of Obama will not fix it. Getting rid of the Federal Reserve will. My prayers go out to Col. Lakin, but God be with him for he knows not what he does, or the peril he faces, and all for nothing.
