Lt. Col. Lakin’s Journey –
At the end of every post, I include commentary directed to those in the military. It’s encouraging to hear that is a place where those in the military can go.
The following post is from Citizenwells site:
Lakin court martial, Where is the military, Answer from retired military officer
From Carmen Reynolds, Lt Col (Ret), USAF, September 23, 2010.
“Answer on WHERE is the military?
Many are asking why the military is doing nothing on the Lt Col Terry Lakin court-martial case.
Many do not understand that the military doesn’t say “Boo” unless directed by their Civilian Masters. The Joint Chiefs of Staff, who direct the Services, derive their orders from Civilian Authorities above, emanating from the Commander-in-Chief.
Many now get to their general ranks by being “yes men” rather than independent thinkers. So in order to keep their jobs, they are onboard with the current trends and flavor of the ruling administration. Gen Bostwick has recently come out calling military personnel “bigots” if they will not psychologically accept gays, and that they should get out. Lady Gaga is trying her best to socially engineer our society into believing it’s OK too and proceeds to denigrate our troops by shouting, “Get out! Get out! Get out!” (that is if they don’t/can’t accept gays.)
All active-duty military members are subject to reprisals for any involvement in these matters. They are prohibited from making public comments regarding vital issues. For example, in the 90’s, we were told NOT to make any more Clinton jokes as military members. I put my retirement papers in shortly afterward.
A nation that forgets its soldiers is soon forgotten. In the absence of any assistance from the above, The U.S. Patriots Union has created two White Papers, outlining a proper defense for Lakin and has ensured he receives this. They have attorneys standing by and are raising funds for this effort.
USPU also created a Veterans Council, headed by Gen. Vallely in an effort to mount large numbers of Patriots concerned about our country to include: military, retired military and family members.
USPU has identified six areas of emphasis so Patriots can concentrate in one area to effect change. As the tea parties are being infiltrated and infighting is occurring, membership will have differing levels of security.
If you really want to know where our soldiers are, they are in the Veterans Council at the U.S. Patriots Union, and they are focused on returning this nation to greatness.
Don’t ask where our soldiers are… They are at Patriots Union!

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.
