The U.S. Army is – unofficially – suggesting a brain scan and medical evaluation for an officer who announced he would refuse to follow further orders until and unless President Obama documents his constitutional eligibility to be commander in chief.
A spokeswoman for the developing case of Lt. Col. Terry Lakin, a flight surgeon with 18 years in the service, said the recommendation came to Lakin today from an officer whose name was not being used who implied that those higher up the chain of command thought it was a good idea.
The suggestion was described to WND by spokeswoman Margaret Calhoun Hemenway, a veteran Washington appointee and now volunteer spokeswoman, as being presented in a “solicitous” manner.
Officially, the U.S. Army says it has no plans for formal action at this point against the officer. But the controversy also raises the prospect that the government may be unwilling to pursue a prosecution because of the possible ramifications – including a defense demand for a court-ordered discovery process that would target Obama’s historical documentation.
As WND reported, Lakin is an active-duty flight surgeon charged with caring for Army Chief of Staff Gen. George Casey’s pilots and air crew.
The top-ranking, highly decorated officer says he’s refusing all orders until Obama releases his long-form, hospital-generated birth certificate to prove his eligibility to serve as commander in chief.
“I feel I have no choice but the distasteful one of inviting my own court martial,” Lakin said in a statement. “The Constitution matters. The truth matters.” …Continue Reading

Today, World Net Daily published my commentary, entitled “Why Obama is ineligible – regardless of his birthplace”. WND has been stepping up their coverage of Obama’s dual nationality at birth issue, and I’ve been more and more impressed with that coverage so I offered to write an essay summarizing the relevant Supreme Court decisions and law review articles. They took me up on the offer and published it verbatim. You may read the article at the link provided above.
In the WND article, I also direct readers to a brilliantly comprehensive etymological deconstruction of the term “natural born Citizen,” “What Is A Natural Born Citizen Of The United States?” by John Greschak. Please read that as well. You might start with the summary before taking on the entire analysis. I was very impressed by the author’s effort.
I must also thank Linda from Constitutionally Speaking for discovering the Alexander Porter Morse essay entitled, “NATURAL-BORN CITIZEN OF THE UNITED STATES: ELIGIBILITY FOR THE OFFICE OF PRESIDENT” (Albany Law Journal Vol. 66 (1904-1905)):
On a side note, the Chrysler appeal is moving along in the Southern District of New York. I will continue to update this blog as developments occur.
Obama’s Faithyness –
Happy Easter! It seems Obama can’t seem to find a church! I hear he’s decided to start his own church.
From American Thinker:

Mr. Obama said he would not select a church while living in the White House. “What we have decided for now is not to join a single church, and the reason is because Michelle and I have realized we are very disruptive to services,” he said.
Instead, he said he would from time to time visit St. John’s Church, across Lafayette Square from the White House, where many presidents have worshiped. He also said the family prefers to worship in the privacy of the presidential retreat when it spends the weekend there. “We love the chapel at Camp David ,” he said.
And he noted that he is sent a daily devotional on his BlackBerry…Continue Reading
