Run it up a Flagpole –
Major Cook and Dr. Orly Taitz’s class-action lawsuit seeking certainty as to the eligibility to serve as President and Commander in Chief of the Armed Forces is in court this morning in Georgia. No matter who wins, the other side will be singing ‘It’s a rainy night in Georgia’ because the issues involve such intense emotion.
The issue of Obama’s eligibility to serve a Commander in Chief MUST be answered definitively because it not acceptable that Obama is putting sailors and soldiers round the world in jeopardy. Doubts in soldiers’ minds on battlefields (or in support of those in battle) can get them killed.
Questions such as: Will I be considered a war criminal if I take part in killing others on foreign soil under the orders of an illegitimate President?
The military round the world is paying attention, the government is retaliating by getting the Major fired from his civilian employment and the numbers of soldiers asking questions is growing.
I pray the Judge will see this a critical question that MUST be addressed definitively – one that can unravel the very fabric of the U.S. Military’s Chain of Command!

The attorney representing an Army major fighting deployment to Afghanistan because he believes Barack Obama is not legally his commander-in-chief is declaring victory after the Soldier’s orders were revoked yesterday.
California lawyer Orly Taitz says any service member may now refuse any order by questioning Obama’s legitimacy.
“Do you know what this means?” Taitz asked in a telephone interview with Military.com Tuesday, about an hour after hearing from Maj. Stefan Cook, the officer fighting his deployment to Afghanistan. “It means the Obama administration has blinked. They have no cards to play with. The moment I filed a lawsuit, they didn’t even fight!”
“Can you imagine what are the consequences? This is disastrous” for the administration, she said. “We’ll have no military. Because anytime any Soldier, any Sailor, any Airman does not want to follow any orders, all he has to do is call an attorney and say ‘I don’t want to follow this order because I question the legitimacy of the commander in chief.’ ”
U.S. Army Maj. Stefan Frederick Cook, the reserve soldier who says he shouldn’t have to go to Afghanistan because he believes Barack Obama was never eligible to be president, has had his deployment orders revoked, Army officials said….Continue Reading
Dr. Orly Taitz is forced to amend their complaint to include charges of retaliation against a whistleblower.
Moreover, however, retaliation has occurred or begun against Plaintiff Stefan Frederick Cook for the exercise of his First Amendment right to petition for redress of grievances and Plaintiff Cook accordingly here seeks an injunction against the continuance or full implementation of this official governmental retaliation or in the alternative for a writ of mandamus, order to show cause, or rule nisi be issued to the Department of Defense commanding it to cease, cure, or remedy all retaliation against Plaintiff Cook. The circumstances are as follows:
Late on Tuesday afternoon, July 14, 2009, at around about 4:30 pm, Plaintiff Stefan Frederick Cook returned a call to an unknown telephone call from (813) 828-5884 and was told that his services were no longer required in Afghanistan and that he need not report for duty. In addition Plaintiff an e-mail with the revocation order attached from Master Sargent Miguel Matos (Exhibit C). Upon receipt of the revocation, Plaintiff Major Cook called his civilian boss, the CEO of Simtech, Inc., a closely held corporation that does DOD contracting in the general field of information technology/systems integration, at which Plaintiff Major was employed until taking a Military Leave of Absence on Friday July 10, 2009, a senior systems engineer and architect, in preparation for his deployment to Afghanistan. (Plaintiff has five Cisco Systems certifications in information technology dating from 2000 and just recertified in June 2009 for the Cisco Certified Design Expert qualification exam.)
The CEO of Simtech, Inc., Larry Grice, explained to Plaintiff over a series of four conversations within the next two hours, that he had been terminated. Grice told the Plaintiff that he would no longer be welcome in his former position at SOCOM but that Grice wanted to see whether he could find something within the company (Simtech, Inc.) for Cook. The upshot was that at this time Grice did not have anything for Plaintiff to do. Grice told Plaintiff, in essence, that the situation had become “nutty and crazy”, and that Plaintiff would no longer be able to work at his old position.
Grice explained that he had been in touch with Defense Security Services (an agency of the Department of Defense, with regional offices located in SOCOM Headquarters at McDill Airforce Base in Tampa, Florida), and that DSS had not yet made a determination whether Plaintiff Major Cook’s clearances would be pulled, but Grice made clear to Cook that it was DSS who had compelled Cook’s termination. Essentially, because of the “nutty and crazy” situation and the communications received from DSS was no longer employable by him at all. So he was not optimistic about getting me another job at the company. Grice also reported to Plaintiff that there was some gossip that “people were disappointed in” the Plaintiff because they thought he was manipulating his deployment orders to create a platform for political purposes. Grice then discussed Plaintiff’s expectation of receiving final paychecks (including accrued leave pay) already owed, without any severance pay, and wished the Plaintiff well.
A federal agency (such as the Department of Defense, acting through the Defense Security Services Agency) clearly violates the Whistleblower Protection Act if it takes or fails to take (or threatens to take or fail to take) a personnel action with respect to any employee or applicant because of any disclosure of information by the employee or applicant that he or she reasonably believes evidences a violation of a law, rule or regulation; gross mismanagement; gross waste of funds; an abuse of authority; or a substantial and specific danger to public health or safety. What has happened in the present case of Stefan Frederick Cook is that a federal agency appears to have taken action against Stefan Frederick Cook’s private employer, Simtech, Inc., which is a closely held corporation owned and operated by members of a single family, who are as much victims of the Department of Defense’ heavy-handed interference with Plaintiff Cook’s private-sector employment as is Plaintiff Cook himself…..Continue Reading
Dr. Orly Taitz represents around 170 military people that I know of and I suspect their numbers are growing!

A controversial suit brought by a U.S. Army reservist has been joined by a retired Army two-star general and an active reserve Air Force lieutenant colonel.
Maj. Stefan Frederick Cook filed the suit July 8 in federal court here asking for conscientious objector status and a preliminary injunction based upon his belief that Barack Obama is not a natural-born citizen of the United States and is therefore ineligible to serve as commander-in-chief of the U.S. Armed Forces.
But before the issue got to court, Cook’s orders to deploy to Afghanistan were revoked. Lt. Col. Maria Quon, U.S. Army Public Affairs Officer, U.S. Army Human Resources Command-St. Louis, said Tuesday that Cook was no longer expected to report Wednesday to MacDill Air Force Base in Florida for mobilization to active duty. Cook, who claims he is now the victim of retaliation due to his suit, received his mobilization orders to report for active duty at MacDill on July 15. From there he was to go to Fort Benning, on July 18, for deployment to Afghanistan.
Cook is an Individual Mobilization Augmentee (IMA). This means he’s a reserve soldier assigned to an active component unit consisting of active duty soldiers instead of a reserve unit, which is composed entirely of reserve soldiers. He is assigned to the U.S. Army Element of U.S. Southern Command.
Last week Cook filed a request in federal court seeking a temporary restraining order and status as a conscientious objector represented by California attorney Orly Taitz.
The government, in its response to the suit, claims that Cook’s suit is “moot” in that he has already been told he doesn’t have to go to Afghanistan, so the relief he is seeking has already been granted.
“The Commanding General of SOCCENT (U.S. Special Operations Central Command) has determined that he does not want the services of Major Cook, and has revoked his deployment orders,” the response states.
Taitz argues in a pleading revised following the revocation of Cook’s orders, that the application for preliminary injunction is not moot and that retired Maj. Gen. Carol Dean Childers and U.S. Air Force Active Reservist Lt. Col. David Earl Graeff have joined the suit “because it is a matter of unparalleled public interest and importance and because it is clearly a matter arising from issues of a recurring nature that will escape review unless the Court exercises its discretionary jurisdiction.”…Continue Reading
Whatever Obama touchs (Chain of Command, Economy, Healthcare, Inspector’s General, the Census, the CONSTITUTION) turns to Sh$t. Where are the Representative of Americans? AWOL marching under the Pelosi flag of politics?
Michelle Malkin is looking for the Blues Dogs to help protect America.

“Centrist” Democrats in the House say they oppose the government health care takeover plans of their leaders and their president.
They’re barking loudly, demanding major amendments to protect small businesses and taxpayers.
But do the Blue Dogs have any bite? Or will they be bought off like many of them were on cap-and-trade and Porkulus One?
The Hill reports:
Centrist Democrats are threatening to oppose their party’s healthcare legislation unless House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) accepts changes that make the bill more to their liking….Continue Reading
Larry Sinclair’s Road –
Another book review for your consideration!
Wednesday, July 15, 2009
The below was sent to me with permission to post it here. The errors referred to were caught and were corrected prior to any further books being printed with them. I have decided to also send a copy to Oprah!
On 30 Nov 2008 I made a $34 prepayment for Larry Sinclair’s future book. Sinclair’s book would discuss his homosexual and cocaine sharing experiences with then Illinois State Senator Barack Obama in November 1999 and the events that followed after Sinclair’s public disclosure of these events on YouTube in January 2008.
I had been following Sinclair’s story on the Internet since February 2008. Having been a Press Officer in the US Army and an Internal Auditor, I was familiar with what can happen when the media turns against you and more importantly the patterns of people who tell the truth and those who don’t. What impressed me most over the following nine months was Sinclair’s story stayed the same, that on multiple occasions efforts were made to silence him on the Internet, and yet he persisted in the face of threats of murder to him and harm to members of his own family.
Yesterday, 14 July 2009, I received copy Number 81 of Sinclair’s book, “Barack Obama & Larry Sinclair Cocaine, Sex, Lies & Murder?”
This books reeks of the truth and the words and style of Larry Sinclair. It is not “ghost-written”. It is not a literary masterpiece and there are several typographical and grammatical mistakes. Most importantly it tells the true story of a man committed to exposing the truth. Sinclair pulls no punches and does not hide behind any equivocations about his past or his many flaws. He does provide very specific details about the dangerous journey he has taken to get the truth published, to speak truth to power. While parts of the book were previously published on his websites, he adds much more detail about what happened at the Democratic National Committee meeting in May 2008, the storm trooper tactics by the DC Metro Police after his appearance at the National Press Club in June 2008, the false charges initiated by Joe Biden’s son, Attorney General Beau Biden in Delaware, the continued failure of the Chicago Police to investigate the murder of Donald Young in December 2007, the openly gay choir master of Obama’s Trinity United Church of Christ, and of course the very specific details about President Obama’s private parts.
It is shameful that the various mainstream media have refused to follow up on Sinclair’s story, to challenge him on the facts, to challenge Joe and Beau Biden and the DC Metro Police on their false charges and imprisonment of Larry Sinclair in June 2008. Just imagine if they and the powerful interests they represent can do this to relatively unknown Larry Sinclair, what can they do to you?
“Barack Obama & Larry Sinclair Cocaine, Sex, Lies & Murder?” is a book worth reading for all those who seek the truth, an example of what a little, flawed man with incredible courage and persistence can achieve in speaking truth to power. Job well done.
All tyranny needs to gain a foothold is for people of good conscience to remain silent.
