Natural Born Citizen -
There are several items that those in the military need to consider over the weekend related to Obama’s lack of eligibility to serve as Commander In Chief and lack of authority to issue lawful orders.

Retired Army Major General Jerry Ralph Curry appeared on the Talk to Solomon Show and was questioned about Obama eligibility challenger LTC Terry Lakin and Obama’s eligibility. During this exchange MGEN Curry says that LTC Lakin is a very brave man but they will try to destroy him personally. He goes on to say we shouldn’t play games with Obama. The MGEN then says the House and Senate need to serve notice on Obama to clear up his eligibility or resign. Video of the exchange embedded below.

And also from General Vallely:
And finally, the 3rd District Court of Appeals backed off their attempt to intimidate Mario Apuzzo, Esq. by forcing him to show cause why he should not be sanctioned for filing a frivolous lawsuit in the case of Kerchner et al v. Obama/Congress et. al.
What does the 3rd District’s action mean?
It means the court did not want to open up any possibility of discovery to Mario Apuzzo that would attract attention. They realized the screwed up and could not go forward without opening up the possibility of evidence of Obama’s ineligibility coming before the court.
The other possibility is that they wanted to punt and clear the way for Mario Apuzz to appeal Kerchner to the Supreme Court of the United States so they would take the heat for upholding the Constitution and finding Obama ineligible to serve as President.
The Supreme Court has a few possible avenues and each has consequences.
1 – The Court could do as they have been all doing and deny Cert. without comment. The consequence of this course of action (inaction) is that the millions of Americans who recognize that the issue of who is a natural born citizen is an vital Constitutional issue and who clearly see that the Court has been trying to avoid the issue (as has admitted to by Justice Thomas) will continue losing faith in the Courts and the Rule of Law. This course says that Justice is not blind – it really does matter who is involved. There is no Justice. This act of cowardice would in effect corner the American people and force them to consider other options.
2 – The Court could actually hear the case and make a ruling only on the standing issue. If they decide that the lower court erred, they would likely remand the case for further proceedings. The Court would necessarily give more guidance/explanation for the lower courts regarding the issue of standing in challenging future elections and the election process. The really brave action would be for the Supreme Court to also actually define the term “natural born citizen” for guidance to the lower court and for election officials at the state levels so this would never come up again. I’m sure there will be many in 2012 filing suits against Obama & Jindal if they have ‘standing’.
3 – Another option might be for the Court to affirm the lower Court’s determination regarding lack of standing but focus on giving guidance regarding the term ‘natural born citizen’. The Court could address the definitional issue because it is an issue of great public importance and is likely to be repeated/confronted in the future, referencing the possibility of Gov. Jindal running for President in 2012. (I believe Gov. Jindal was born in the United States but his parents were not.) This course of action would leave a bad taste for millions of Americans but would arm the States the necessary definition to ensure that the Constitution is enforced in the future. (For Justices appointed by Obama – recusal would be in order.) It would make the remainder of Obama’s term a nightmare – and if the Democrats in Congress did not investigate to ensure Obama’s eligibility they would be voted out of power for decades to come. This would be the Supreme Court punting the political issue to Congress. I wonder if the media truth assassins would cover it?

On July 2, 2010, the U.S. Third Circuit Court of Appeals issued its decision affirming the New Jersey Federal District Court’s dismissal of the Kerchner et al v. Obama/Congress et al case for lack of Article III standing. The Court ordered that I show cause in 14 days why the Court should not find me liable for just damages and costs suffered by the defendants, not in having to defend against the merits of plaintiffs’ underlying claims that Putative President Obama is not an Article II “natural born Citizen,” that he has yet to conclusively prove that he was born in Hawaii, that Congress failed to exercise its constitutional duty to properly vet and investigate Obama’s “natural born Citizen” status, and that former Vice President and President of the Senate, Dick Cheney, and current Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi, were complicit in that Congressional failure, but rather in having to defendant against what the court considers to be a frivolous appeal of the District Court’s dismissal of their claims on the ground of Article III standing. On Monday, July 19, 2010, I filed my response. This afternoon, on July 22, 2010, the Third Circuit Court of Appeals issued its decision on whether it should impose the damages and costs upon me. The Court has decided not to impose any damages and costs upon me and has discharged its order to show cause. This means that the matter of damages and costs is closed. Here is the Court’s decision:
“ORDER (SLOVITER, BARRY and HARDIMAN, Circuit Judges) On July 2, 2010, this Court filed an Order to Show Cause directing Appellants’ counsel to show cause in writing why he should not be subject to an Order pursuant to F.R.A.P. 38 for pursuing a frivolous appeal. In response, Mario Apuzzo filed a 95-page statement that contains, inter alia, numerous statements directed to the merits of this Court’s opinion, which the Court finds unpersuasive. His request that the Court reconsider its opinion is denied, as the appropriate procedure for that issue is through a Petition for Rehearing. However, based on Mr. Apuzzo’s explanation of his efforts to research the applicable law on standing, we hereby discharge the Order to Show Cause, filed. Sloviter, Authoring Judge. (PDB).”
I want to thank everyone who supported and encouraged me in this battle. This includes everyone who expressed their feelings on this matter through blog posts, articles, comments, and emails.
Mario Apuzzo, Esq.

Journolist Truth Assassins –
I hope the military will also consider how much of the information regarding the ‘natural born citizen’ issue has been manipulated, emphasized, de-emphasized, vilified, ridiculed, and lied about by those in the sphere of influence of the ‘Journolist’ Truth Assassins!
Posted by Jim Hoft on Thursday, July 22, 2010, 11:09 PM
The “Journolist” is a listserv comprised of several hundred top liberal journalists from influential American and British media outlets, as well as like-minded professors, union reps and activists. Leftist media hack and WaPo journalist Ezra Klein founded Journolist with far left crank Joe Klein from TIME magazine in February of 2007. Klein admitted that Journolist was an “insulated space where the lure of a smart, ongoing conversation would encourage journalists, policy experts and assorted other observers to share their insights with one another.” But, you had to be a leftist to join this group. It was an exclusive club. And, it grew to include 400 of the most prominent leftist American journalists who shared ideas and helped spin the far left narrative in the state-run media. This is where far left cranks colluded to spit out the DNC’s talking points and to defend President Barack Obama’s radical past and socialist agenda. Ezra Klein reportedly shut down Journolist on June 28, 2010 after leaks were reported. Andrew Breitbart announced recently that he would reward $100,000 to anyone who could provide the full “JournoList” archive, source fully protected.
Now we find out that one of Barack Obama’s top advisers was a member and participated on Journolist.
Jared Bernstein was an Obama economic adviser and member of Journolist.
The Volokh Conspiracy reported:
Jared Bernstein, chief economist for Vice President Joseph Biden, served in 2008 as an economic adviser to the Obama campaign. At the same time, he was a member of JournoList, the controversial progressive email list.
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.
