Natural Born Citizen Issue –
It’s great to see the American Thinker touching this critical issue!
In the American Thinker this morning:
April 08, 2010
Last week, I entered Walter Reed Army Hospital to notify the Department of Defense that I would refuse to obey any orders from my commanding officers — including President Obama — until the president produces his original birth certificate. After nearly eighteen years of wearing the military uniform of the country I have proudly served, including overseas assignments in imminent danger/combat areas in Bosnia and Afghanistan, I felt compelled to take this step.
I made this decision from much deliberation, after lengthy consultations with many friends, family members, and colleagues, and I firmly believe that all servicemen and women, and the American public, have the right to know the truth about President Obama’s constitutional eligibility to serve as Commander-in-Chief.
As military officers, we all take a solemn oath upon commissioning into the Uniformed Services. In this oath, we swear to support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic. Upholding the law is an essential part of our role as citizens; in the military, we are the ultimate protectors of that law. The Constitution is our social compact, which safeguards all of us and ensures the “equal rights” that we are entitled to as American citizens.
Since Nuremberg, My Lai, and even Abu Ghraib more recently, the military has been taught the hard lessons of following illegal orders. Any reasonable person looking critically at the information and evidence currently in the public domain about Obama’s birthplace would have questions about President Obama’s claim to be a natural born citizen. I made the decision to disobey all military orders, including my deployment order to Afghanistan, in pursuit of the truth of whether President Obama can legally occupy the high post that he holds today and which entitles him to send servicemembers into harm’s way. … Continue Reading

The following comments from Greenspan vindicate everything many of us have been saying for years. The current fiscal situation is the fault of Congress meddling with business risk!
Wed Apr 7, 2010 10:42am EDT
WASHINGTON, April 7 (Reuters) – Former Federal Reserve Chairman Alan Greenspan chastised critics on Wednesday by pointing out that Congress pushed the U.S. central bank to make sure lending to poorer Americans kept rising in the 2000s.
“If the Fed as a regulator had tried to thwart what everyone perceived as a fairly broad consensus that the trend was in the right direction, homeownership was rising and that was an unmitigated good, then Congress would have clamped down on us,” he told a questioner at a congressionally appointed commission investigating the financial crisis.
“There’s a presumption that the Federal Reserve’s an independent agency, and it is up to a point, but we are a creature of the Congress and if … we had said we’re running into a bubble and we need to retrench, the Congress would say ‘we haven’t a clue what you’re talking about’,” Greenspan said.

Consider this one of those moments that are inadvertently revealing … or maybe not all that inadvertent. Chris Matthews and his panel put their finger on why Democrats seem to be so unpopular these days. Could it be because they insisted on passing a huge, expensive precursor to a government takeover of a sixth of the American economy, one which has been deeply unpopular for months? No, that can’t be it. Matthews and David Corn decide that the real problem is that the Democrats haven’t explained all of the wonders of the “social state” to benighted voters….Continue Reading

America’s tea-party movement is set to explode in less than one week with taxpayer rallies in an estimated 800 U.S. cities and a massive march on the White House.
The movement is now putting President Obama himself on notice with a Tax Day tea party at the White House Ellipse on April 15, 2010, from 6 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. FreedomWorks is partnering with the American Liberty Alliance and several other groups to launch the Washington event.
“This April 15 will be the largest network of events across the country that I believe we’ve seen in a long time,” FreedomWorks President Matt Kibbe said in a conference call. “As far as we can tell, we count somewhere between 800 and 900 tea parties across the country. We expect millions of people to show up across the country protesting a government that is out of control, a government that does not listen to the American people. We want to take our country back.”…Continue Reading
Whoever is careless with the truth in small matters cannot be trusted with important matters.
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? Support Lieutenant Colonel Terry Lakin, Commander Kerchner and Lt. Commander Walter Fitzpatrick, III.
If not, why don’t we just change the military 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’.
If the oath of allegiance is changed, maybe the members of our military won’t have to deal with their consciences for following the ‘unlawful orders’ of Mr. Obama.
