Army “Birther” To Be Court-Martialed

By Wyatt Earp | April 15, 2010

Good. Personally, I have little time for “birthers.” There are plenty of things you can criticize President Obama about other than his place of birth. Substantial things, like the struggling economy, ObamaCare, and his unbridled arrogance to name a few.

Disobeying an order because you think the president was born outside the United States? Not so much.

U.S. military officials tell NBC News that the U.S. Army will court martial a lieutenant colonel who refuses to deploy to Afghanistan because he considers orders from President Obama to be “illegal.”

Army doctor Lt. Col. Terry Lakin believes Obama does not meet the constitutional requirements to be president and commander-in-chief, because he believes that Obama wasn’t born in the United States. Lakin refused this week to report to Fort Campbell, KY for deployment to Afghanistan, but instead showed up at the Pentagon, where he was confronted by his brigade Commander Col. Gordon Roberts, a Vietnam Medal of Honor recipient.

Lakin was informed by Roberts that he would face court martial, and his Pentagon building pass and government laptop computer were seized.

This tool needs to spend more time worrying about his oath and less time worrying about moonbat conspiracy theories. He may not like the fact that Barack Obama is president, and he may believe that Obama was not born in the United States. Tough. Barack Obama is the president, and if you choose to not follow his orders, you should be disciplined for that choice.

    I’m with you, Wyatt. If you can’t handle following orders from people you don’t like, you should stay out of the military. And this guy is definitely old/experienced enough to know better.

    No doubt, besides if there really was proof that he was born in Kenya don’t you think Hillary Clinton would have played that card during the primary.

    Yup, you hit it on the head!!

    I don’t like Obama’s policies either, but he is MY President.
    I had many officers I would have liked to have told to screw off, but rank has it’s privileges.

    There are consequences to conscious choices. No sympathy to be found here. He should know enough to pick his battles.

    John D – I don’t like some of my supervisors. I still follow their orders. It’s called being a professional.

    Ingineer66 – Of course she would.

    Jon – Personally, I think this putz just doesn’t want to go to the ‘Stan.

    Danny – Exactly. He is the president, and his orders are to be followed. End of story.

    MeToo – He picked the wrong one, and he lost. Too bad.

    They should just give him the same treatment Watada got. Seems fair.

    Personally I think the book should be thrown (and hard) at any officer who pulls these types of shenanigans. It’s sickening, but luckily these jackasses are VERY few and far between.

  8. Wyatt Earp Says:

    Sally Anne – Well said. It is telling that the same MSM who applauded the tools who wouldn’t go to “Bush’s War in Iraq” are now decrying this other tool who doesn’t recognize Obama.

    Officers unlike enlisted men can resign their commision. If he feels this way, resignation would be the most honourable choice as opposed to a GCM. He loses his bennies either way.

  10. Wyatt Earp Says:
    April 15th, 2010 at 9:40 pm

    Jon – That would be the honorable thing – which is why he won’t do it.

    Resigning his commission is not the honorable thing to do.
    It’s not a matter of following the orders of someone he doesn’t like.
    Obama is most assuredly not the king.
    I could go on, but I’ll just ask that you look at this stuff with an open mind….
    That would be the honorable thing.

    I don’t know if I tagged the links properly for your site, but will provide anything you can’t get to w/ what’s here.

    There’s lots of stuff out there.
    Don’t dismiss it so readily, you’re doing nobody a favor.

    Wait a minute, you’re telling me that Obama wasn’t born in the U.S.? Nolan, why didn’t you let us know BEFORE the election?

    You could have prevented so much pain and suffering of the American people.

    Shame on you nolan for keeping this to yourself for so long.

    oh, and Lt. Col. Lakin looks like a penis with ears.

    He may well have another motive. Remember the civilian side of the ‘birthers’ lawsuit isn’t getting much traction in Federal Court. Perhaps at his CM they will petition the government to produce some of these items that has been stonewalled in the past (i.e. transcripts, bar application etc.).

    Randall, you’re not clever enough by half.
    This was all out there, look at the dates. Not my fault you’re not payin’ attention.
    Does the single, simple fact that he has never released his COLB indicate anything to you?

  15. Wyatt Earp Says:
    April 16th, 2010 at 12:17 pm

    Nolan – You lost me when you quoted Pam Geller. I DESPISE that woman. Truly despise her. We had a run-in before. Terrible woman.

    Randal – He reminds me of Smerconish. And Smerconish is the biggest douche in town.

    Al – They may, or they may just ignore that and stick to the real issue – that Lakin refused an order.

  16. Randal Graves Says:

    Oh, I’m clever enough; but there’s beating a dead horse and then there’s beating a horse that’s dead, chopped up, sent to the glue factory and then used in a bottle of Elmer’s.

    randal, you’re not clever enough by half.
    And the ad hom attack on the guy has what to do with anything? A solid display of your debating skills.

  18. nolan Says:

    Wyatt, did you read the article or dismiss it out of hand because of the messenger?
    She didn’t write the analysis. She posted it on her blog.
    Did you read any of the links?
    And the issue of refusing the order will directly lead the legality of that order.
    And do you think ad hom is a worth-while approach? Does it make you feel superior? Is it all you got?
    Randal, no, not clever.

  19. Wyatt Earp Says:
    April 16th, 2010 at 4:41 pm

    Nolan – Actually, I did read the links while I was at work. It was a slow night last night. That being said, I have never felt superior to anyone. People who read this blog know that well enough. But questions like those get you no play here.

    What does knocking somebody’s appearances do?
    But back to the info.
    Just not buying it?
    I never made much of the whole thing until I started looking a little bit. Then some more.
    Some of the stuff can be debated, certainly, but the irrefutable fact is that the COLB was never released.

    I agree with you.

    Hear! Hear! You and me both.

    nolan, I make fun of everyone’s appearance. My guess is that you’re probably a little weird looking as you sit in your parent’s basement.

    Fine, I’ll play along with your antics. If “techdude’s” analysis is correct and he’s such a master of his profession, then how in the world is Obama President, especially since the Atlas Shrugs post/article/blog was written 2-1/2 months before he was elected? Oh, that’s right, it’s all a big conspiracy, correct?

    How about you do something? Instead of wasting everyone’s time trying to prove that Obama wasn’t born in the U.S., why don’t you just prove that he WAS born in Kenya. That should be easy enough; just go get his Kenyan birth certificate. I’ll assume your reply will be along the lines of: “but the Kenyan gubment is in on this part of the conspiracy too.”
