LTC Terry Lakin may be last line of defense to Constitution
SCOTUS denies Kerchner petition for writ of certiorari
PHOENIX – The American Patriot Foundation has called on citizens to support LTC Terrence “Terry” Lakin during the countdown to his court martial.
As of this edition, there are only 12 days before Lakin goes to trial.
A group has organized a “Support Terry Lakin Day” series of rallies on Monday, Dec. 6, beginning at 10:30 a.m. in front of Sen. John McCain’s Office, 5353 N. 16th Street, Phoenix, AZ 85016.
The next rally will begin at 12 noon in front of Sen. Jon Kyl’s office, 2200 E. Camelback, Phoenix, Arizona 85016, with the final rally at 2 p.m. in front of Rep. Trent Frank’s office, 7121 W. Bell Road, Glendale, AZ 85308.
Jeff Lichter, who is organizing the rallies, said they will consist of standing outside each official’s office with signs urging their support of Lakin while some participants will enter the offices to speak with staff about Lakin’s situation.
Lakin, a highly decorated Army doctor with over 18 years of service, was told to bring his birth certificate when ordered to deploy to Afghanistan. Lakin was perfectly willing to provide a copy of his birth certificate if President Obama would release a copy of his.
As an officer, Lakin took an oath to “support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign or domestic, that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservations or purpose of evasion; and that I will faithfully discharge the duties of the office upon which I am about to enter; So help me God.”
Unlike the enlisted soldier’s oath, which includes a clause to “obey the orders of the President of the United States and the orders of the officers appointed over me …” there is no such provision in the oath for commissioned officers.
Additionally, Lakin is bound by his oath and the Uniform Code of Military Justice to obey lawful orders and to disobey any order that violates the Constitution.
If Obama is a usurper to the presidency, which his own published memoires indicate he is by his admission to being born a British subject, then he cannot be a natural born citizen as required by the Constitution.
Some question whether he was actually born in Hawaii as he claims, as no hospital has claimed being his birthplace and both Obama and his sister Maya have provided conflicting information as to which hospital in Honolulu was allegedly the place of his birth.
Other information Obama has been unable to keep hidden is the fact that his Selective Service System registration was falsely created, after the fact in 2008, and his use of a Connecticut-issued Social Security number, which is associated with another individual who was born in 1890.
Men who do not register with the Selective Service by the time they reach 26 years of age, are forever precluded from holding a job in the executive branch of the federal government.
There is plenty of documentation available tipping in favor of those who question Obama’s legitimacy.
However, the Constitution was delivered another blow on Monday when the Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS) denied the petition for a writ of certiorari in Charles Kerchner, et al. v. Obama, President of the United States, et al.
Although other cases will come before the SCOTUS to request citizens be granted standing to defend Article II Section I of the United States and settle the definition of natural born citizen, Lakin has placed his military career on the line to defend the Constitution against an enemy who is either foreign or domestic.
