Bronze Star medal recipient Lt. Col. Terry Lakin was interviewed on G. Gordon Liddy’s radio show the morning of April 20. Lakin is the army surgeon who is risking court martial by challenging Obama’s authority because of his dubious birth eligibility as President and Commander-in-Chief. (For my previous post on Lakin, CLICK HERE.)
Lakin’s is the latest of numerous challenges and lawsuits maintaining Obama does not meet the Constitution’s citizenship criteria for the presidency either because he was not born in the United States (Hawaii) as he claims, or that the framers of the Constitution specifically excluded dual citizens from being eligible for the office. While Obama’s mother was a U. S. citizen, his Kenyan father was a subject of the British crown at Obama’s birth, Kenya being a British colony at the time, which made Obama a dual citizen and therefore not a “natural born citizen.”
The Constitution, Article 2, Section 1, states, “No Person except a natural born Citizen, or a Citizen of the United States, at the time of the Adoption of this Constitution, shall be eligible to the Office of President.”
According to Bob Unruh of WorldNetDaily, Dr. Lakin was accompanied by his attorney, Paul Jensen, on radio. Lakin said:
“It’s by far the most difficult thing I’ve ever done. The Lord blessed me with a great family, wife and good upbringing. I’ve tried to uphold the principles espoused by my parents and do the right thing and not take the easy way out. I just seek the truth. My motivation stems from my oath of office to defend and uphold the Constitution. It’s the Constitution. That needs to be upheld.”
Lakin also said, “I’ve been flagged for missing movement and my intent to disobey all orders. That flagging means there can be no favorable actions taken for me.” He explained that he already had been picked for promotion to full colonel, “which would take place in a little over a year. That’s in jeopardy now.”
His attorney, Jensen, said Lakin was given “written notice” Monday of the “flagging.” The next steps will be for the government to file charges and for an investigation to begin. “We look forward to defending his case as events arise,” Jensen said. He said that Obama’s continuing efforts to withhold documentation that could resolve the question is, in itself, suggestive of a lack of evidence. Jensen also said that the failings of many of the other eligibility cases that have been brought – standing or the issue of political question – “do not come into play in any way in Lt. Col. Lakin’s defense.”
Jensen expressed confidence that discovery will be possible because “Every criminal defendant has to be allowed the benefit of doubt to discover information relevant or which may even lead to the discovery of relevant information that could support his case. It would shocking to me that a defendant in a dock would not be permitted to discover information that would lend itself to proving his [case].”
WND founder and CEO Joseph Farah and WND senior investigative reporter Jerome Corsi also appeared on the program to offer questions to Lakin, with Farah pointing out a new CBS-New York Times poll revealed only 58% of Americans believe Obama was born in America.
