UPDATE on Lt.Col TERRY LARKIN

BORN IN THE USA?






'Important question about Constitution'



Army officer challenging Obama eligibility takes to airwaves
to discuss legal fight

An attorney for an officer refusing all Army orders until Barack
Obama's eligibility to be commander in chief is documented says his
client formally has been "flagged" by the military and the formal filing
of charges is expected within days.

Attorney Paul Jensen today was on the radio show of G. Gordon Liddy
with his client, Lt. Col. Terry Lakin, who has told Obama in a letter
that it's up to him to provide the proof.

The Constitution, Article 2, Section 1, states, "No Person except
a natural born Citizen, or a Citizen of the United States, at the time
of the Adoption of this Constitution, shall be eligible to the Office of
President."

Some of the various challenges and lawsuits allege Obama was not
born in Hawaii as he has claimed and that the framers of the
Constitution specifically excluded dual citizens – Obama's father was a
subject of the British crown at Obama's birth – from being eligible for
the office.

The issue has prompted a number of state legislatures to work on
proposals that would require presidential candidates to submit proof of
their eligibility. A
similar proposal
has been introduced in Congress by Rep. Bill Posey, R-Fla.

Lakin and his private counsel told Liddy today they are
addressing this "important question about the Constitution."

"I've been flagged for missing movement and my intent to disobey
all orders. That flagging means there can be no favorable actions taken
for me," Lakin said.

He explained that he already had been picked
for promotion to full colonel, "which would take place in a little over
a year. That's in jeopardy now."

Jensen said his client was given "written notice" Monday of the
"flagging."

"How tragic it is his promotion is being stopped," Jensen said.

The attorney said the next steps will be for the government to
file charges and for an investigation to be commenced.

"It's by far the most difficult thing I've ever done," Lakin
said. "The Lord blessed me with a great family, wife and good
upbringing. I've tried to uphold the principles espoused by my parents
and do the right thing and not take the easy way out. I just seek the
truth."

"My motivation stems from my oath of office to defend and uphold
the Constitution," Lakin said. "It's the Constitution. That needs to be
upheld."

"We look forward to defending his case as events arise," Jensen
said.

He suggested that the president's continuing efforts to withhold
documentation that could resolve the question is, in itself, suggestive
of a lack of evidence.

He also said that the failings of many of the cases that have
been brought – standing or the issue of political question – "do not
come into play in any way in Lt. Col. Lakin's defense."

Jensen also expressed confidence that discovery will be possible.

"Every criminal defendant has to be allowed the benefit of doubt to
discover information relevant or which may even lead to the discovery of
relevant information that could support his case," he said.

"It would shocking to me that a defendant in a dock would not be
permitted to discover information that would lend itself to proving his
[case]," he said.

Lakin told Liddy he tried to resolve the questions through formal
channels.

"I did seek out … friends and my chain of command in how to
address this issue and hopefully get answers. … Really there was no
forthcoming help from legal resources in the military and I did what I
could on my own – essentially researching and finding out about a UCMJ
Article 138 complaint I attempted to file over a year ago."

But he said he was told his complaint didn't have to be
addressed.

Jensen said the military's Article 138 procedure wasn't really
mean to solve a problem like this.

WND founder and CEO Joseph Farah and WND senior investigative
reporter Jerome Corsi also appeared on the program to offer questions to
Lakin, with Farah pointing out a new CBS-New York Times poll revealed
only 58 percent of Americans even "think" Obama was born in America.

WND reported last week when the Army confirmed Lakin would be
assigned to Walter Reed Army Hospital during an investigation.







Lt. Col. Terry
Lakin is the highest-ranking and first active-duty officer to refuse to
obey orders based on President Obama's eligibility.


Army spokesman Chuck Dasey told WND Lakin is only "under
investigation" at this point.

"Lakin reported to the commander, Medical Center Brigade, Walter
Reed Army Medical Center, on Monday, 12 April, after failing to report
for duty at Fort Campbell, Ky.," a statement sent by Dasey to WND said.

"Lakin will be assigned to duty at Walter Reed pending
investigation."

A spokeswoman for Lakin, Margaret Calhoun Hemenway, told WND that
whatever the "assignment" amounts to, Lakin's access privileges were
revoked, his computer was confiscated and he "is not permitted to
support his Hippocratic oath … and take care of the troops as a doctor
and a surgeon."

On the day he was supposed to have reported for deployment, Lakin
was read his rights by Col. Gordon Roberts, his brigade commander, who
discussed the situation with him and told him he had the "right to
remain silent" because he was about to be charged with "serious crimes."

Hemenway said the message was that "he will shortly be
court-martialed for crimes (specifically, missing movement and conduct
unbecoming an officer) that for others has led to lengthy imprisonment
at hard labor."

Lakin is not the first officer to raise questions. Others have included Army
doctor Capt. Connie Rhodes
and Army
reservist Maj. Stefan Cook
. But Lakin is the highest-ranking officer
to raise the question.

The comments followed the case of Cook, the reservist who challenged
his deployment orders over questions about their legality under Obama.

"Rather than contesting the suit," Day wrote, "the Army took the
highly peculiar step of revoking the major's deployment order,
suggesting that the Pentagon generals are not entirely confident that
they can demonstrate the legitimacy of their purported commander in
chief.

"The Pentagon's decision to back down rather than risk exposing
Obama's birth records to the public means that every single American
soldier, sailor, pilot and Marine now holds a 'get out of war free'
card."

Obama's actual response to those who question his eligibility to
be president under the Constitution's requirement that the U.S.
president be a "natural born citizen" has been to dispatch both private
and tax-funded attorneys to prevent anyone from gaining access to his
documentation.

Besides Obama's actual birth documentation, the
still-concealed documentation for him includes
kindergarten records,
Punahou school records, Occidental College records, Columbia University
records, Columbia thesis, Harvard Law School records, Harvard Law
Review articles, scholarly articles from the University of Chicago,
passport, medical records, his files from his years as an Illinois state
senator, his Illinois State Bar Association records, any baptism
records, and his adoption records.

    Did any of you bother to look at what the Constitution actually says? Assuming that "Natural Born Citizen" means born in the United States is a poor assumption.

    Age and Citizenship requirements - US Constitution, Article II, Section 1

    No person except a natural born citizen, or a citizen of the United States, at the time of the adoption of this Constitution, shall be eligible to the office of President; neither shall any person be eligible to that office who shall not have attained to the age of thirty-five years, and been fourteen years a resident within the United States.

    Natural-born citizen
    The Constitution authorizes the Congress to do create clarifying legislation in Section 5 of the 14th Amendment; the Constitution, in Article 1, Section 8, Clause 4, also allows the Congress to create law regarding naturalization, which includes citizenship.

    Title 8 of the U.S. Code fills in the gaps left by the Constitution. Section 1401 defines the following as people who are "citizens of the United States at birth:"

    Anyone born inside the United States *
    Any Indian or Eskimo born in the United States, provided being a citizen of the U.S. does not impair the person's status as a citizen of the tribe
    Any one born outside the United States, both of whose parents are citizens of ...

    Any one born outside the United States, both of whose parents are citizens of the U.S., as long as one parent has lived in the U.S.
    Any one born outside the United States, if one parent is a citizen and lived in the U.S. for at least one year and the other parent is a U.S. national
    Any one born in a U.S. possession, if one parent is a citizen and lived in the U.S. for at least one year
    Any one found in the U.S. under the age of five, whose parentage cannot be determined, as long as proof of non-citizenship is not provided by age 21
    Any one born outside the United States, if one parent is an alien and as long as the other parent is a citizen of the U.S. who lived in the U.S. for at least five years (with military and diplomatic service included in this time)
    A final, historical condition: a person born before 5/24/1934 of an alien father and a U.S. citizen mother who has lived in the U.S.

    Your reading of Article II of the Constitution is very creative, to say the least. There is nothing in Clause 5 of the article to deny citizenship to anyone whose parents were either born in another country or hold citizenship in another country. All that is required is that the person in question is born in the U.S.

    The documents to prove Obama's live birth in 1961 are on file with the Hawaii Dept of Health in Honolulu. Col. Larkin will end up in the brig, a few grades lower, for his efforts.

    Nice try. You didn't get either of those from the Hawaii site. The second one was dredged up by Oily Taint as part of her discredited effort. It is an obvious forgery. The other one doesn't deserve comment.

    I would ask when we are going to get serious about this, but it is time to move on from the birther thing. We have more important issues to deal with.

    LMAO---YOU finally figured that out!! Even if he is found NOT to be a citizen---BY getting rid of him,CHARGING him with various counts--all criminal--AND treason---that would cause a HUGE problem i our country!!

    OK, now we're not being serious. None of that is going to happen. He is a natural-born citizen, and even Beck and O'Reilly are satisfied.

    Now, about regulating those banks....

    I'm not sure what itch that will scratch. It will have no effect on the big banks with their derivatives, hedge funds and credit default swaps which, along with their subprime schemes, almost brought the U.S. economy to a complete halt. We need to get them re-regulated before we worry about the Fed.

    OK, what is the problem with the Fed? You do realize it is not a part of the government. It is an independent agency, much like the Supreme Court. Presidents and the Senate appoint the members to both, but then they have no practical control over them.

    They don't have the power to trash Congressional acts, no matter how much they wish they could. The president could veto it, but a 96-0 Senate vote indicates they could easily override it, so he will sign.
