Natural Born Citizen –
I was thinking about the courageous actions of Lt. Col. Lakin this morning, my service in the Navy in the 70’s, and today’s brave men and women serving in the United States Military. I have many questions regarding Obama’s refusal to voluntarily provide sufficient documentation to establish his eligibility to serve as President and Commander-In Chief. Regardless of what I was thinking or believe today, the main reason Obama should rush to provide every document, timeline, explanation, birth certificate, etc., whatever is needed – is for the possible damage to the memory of those bravely serving today! No one wants an asterisk attached to today’s military volunteers DD-214!
Did you hear about this possibility?
Because of the existence of a strong likelihood that Obama is not eligible to serve as President, there’s a new suggestion for inclusion in the military’s DD-214 manual being circulated.
The Character of Service for all DD-214 forms issued for service from January 19, 2009 to January 19, 2013 will only read:
- Honorable But* – This Particular Military Personnel served while Obama occupied the position of Commander-In-Chief. This period of service is tarnished because there is a strong and reasonable suspicion that said Obama is/was not eligible to serve in that position – but the Joint Chiefs, Flag Officers, Junior Officers, Senior Enlisted Personnel, and the Judge Advocate Generals Corps did nothing to insure the honor of America’s military.
- Under Honorable Conditions But* – See Honorable But*
- Under Other than Honorable Conditions But* – See Honorable But*
- Bad Conduct But* – See Honorable But*
- Dishonorable But* – See Honorable But*
- Uncharacterized But* – This particular Military Personnel served while Obama occupied the position of Commander-In-Chief. This period of service is tarnished because there is a strong and reasonable suspicion that said Obama is/was not eligible to serve in that position – but the Joint Chiefs, Flag Officers, Junior Officers, Senior Enlisted Personnel, and the Judge Advocate Generals Corps did nothing to insure the honor of America’s military. (Note: This designation is appropriate if the person completing the DD-214 feels terms such as Honorable, Bad Conduct, Dishonorable don’t apply because of the likelihood of that all military were following ‘unlawful orders’.)
Additionally, I am reposting my recent addition + one to the Public Policy Polling questions.
The following recent poll is from Public Policy Polling:
PPP surveyed 400 Republican primary voters nationwide from February 11th to 13th. The
Survey’s margin of error is +/-4.9%.
Q11 Do you think Barack Obama was born in the
No …………………………………………………………. 51%
Not sure …………………………………………………. 21%
Q14 Would you describe yourself as very liberal,
somewhat liberal, moderate, somewhat
conservative, or very conservative?
Very liberal ……………………………………………… 1%
Somewhat liberal …………………………………….. 5%
Somewhat conservative……………………………. 41%
Very conservative ……………………………………. 39%
That means that 72% of Republicans are not sure if Obama was born in America. How will the Republican candidates handle these results without alienating their supporters? How will Glenn Beck handle this result while continuing to urge America to be true to the Constitution?
In a recent American Thinker article, the perfect Republican response was provided.
…“For Huckabee going forward — if he still has a political career — and for all Republicans, if asked about the citizenship issue, please answer as follows:
“George/ David/ Chris etc–if there is ignorance” abroad, as you suggest, it is because of your collective failure to investigate the background of Barack Obama. The truth is we know more about George Washington’s early years than Obama’s…
I would like to see PPP, Rasmussen, Gallop, etc., conduct another poll with the following questions asked.
Do you have a son, daughter or spouse serving in the United States Military?
I would suspect that if this question were asked of Democrats as well – the percentage of Republicans with sons, daughters, or spouses serving in the military would be somewhat higher.
I would suspect that if this question were asked of all liberals, moderates and conservatives as well – the percentage of liberals with sons, daughter, or spouses serving in the military would be extremely low.
If you have a son, daughter or spouse in the military, how would you describe yourself?
a) Very liberal
e) Very Conservative

Mr. Sinclair is busy with his defense in a lawsuit brought against him. As a former criminal defense attorney and member of the ACLU, I was/am very interested in Larry’s recent post. The ACLU used to be an organization I believed in. However today, they are nothing more than partisan hacks.
In support of Lt. Col. Lakin’s courage in seeking the ‘Truth’ (and as a former In-Flight Tech in the Navy), I urge all who have served or have friends/family in the military to ask the following question of those currently serving.
Brothers and Sisters in the Military, when are you going to demand Obama establish that he is a Natural Born Citizen, eligible to serve as Commander In Chief?
The military is the only government organization that I continue to have respect for and it pains me criticize those serving. And I understand the consequences of challenging Obama’s eligibility directly, but the continuing attacks against our Constitution by the left cannot be allowed to pass without objection in some form or another. Acquiescence is not the only option.
Consider this please. What if every serviceman or woman went to his or her Chaplin, stated their concerns and provided the basic evidence (direct and circumstantial, links, former statements by NPR etc. indicating a Kenyan birth, etc., etc.) that would cause most reasonable persons to have legitimate questions about Obama’s lack of eligibility to serve and issue lawful orders? What if requests were made to each Chaplin instructing them to pass these concerns up the Chain of Command? Would there come a point, a number of requests that would cause the leadership to demand proof of eligibility?
Maybe military leadership could utilize the following provision?
§ 935. Art. 135. Courts of inquiry
(a) Courts of inquiry to investigate any matter may be convened by any person authorized to convene a general court-martial or by any other person designated by the Secretary concerned for that purpose, whether or not the persons involved have requested such an inquiry.
If the Oath to protect the Constitution is not important today, why don’t we just change the oath of allegiance to reflect our current level of commitment?
I, _______, do solemnly swear to protect ME and I will try to defend the Constitution as long as it doesn’t adversely impact the aforementioned ‘ME’.
Whoever is careless with the truth in small matters cannot be trusted with important matters.
Official Disclosure – Just to be clear, my graphics depict almost all members of the BOPAC Administration as being full of crap. They do not actually look like turds – one needs special ‘full of crap’ glasses to be able to see the core of those who continually feed America BS. I treat everyone equally – when Glenn Beck goes off on those who reasonably question Obama’s eligibility, he gets a half-full of crap depiction.
