McCain Lawyer Deleted Wiki's Terry Lakin Entry

Rate this post

Remember my post of November 15, 2010, about Wikipedia pulling its entry on U.S. Army surgeon Lt. Col. Terry Lakin? The Bronze-Star decorated surgeon is being court martialed for challenging Obama’s constitutional eligibility to be President and Commander-in-Chief.
It turns out a lawyer for RINO John McCain’s ’08 presidential campaign, Theodore Frank, is instrumental in Wiki’s deletion. Looks like our suspicions are right: The Obama eligibility conspiracy is bipartisan.
Below are excerpts from Margaret Hemmenway’s article for, “McCain 2008 lawyer is the culprit in Wikipedia Lakin deletion,” Dec 3, 2010:

Columnist Diana West (Washington Examiner/November 24) exposed the warp speed deletion of an entry about Army LTC Terry Lakin, in the online encyclopedia, Wikipedia. This is a link to LTC Lakin entry before it disappeared down what West described aptly as the memory hole:

LTC Lakin defied military orders eight months ago in an attempt to seek the truth about whether Barack Obama is Constitutionally eligible to serve as Commander-in-Chief of the U.S. Armed Forces under requirements of Article II, Section 1, as a “natural born citizen.” LTC Lakin, with six overseas tours, including year long tours to Honduras, Bosnia and Afghanistan, was to deploy to Afghanistan again under Obama’s pronounced “surge” policy, and faces court-martial at Fort Meade, Maryland on December 14.
The Wiki entry on LTC Lakin was removed in record time- an hour and 11 minutes after being flagged for deletion. The culprit in the Wiki deletion was ID’d by a Wiki user as Washington, D.C. lawyer, Theodore Frank, who worked on the McCain campaign in 2008. The Wiki deletion was recommended for extirpation by someone with user name, THF…. THF is the initials of Theodore “Ted” Frank– founder and president of the Center for Class Action Fairness. It’s already been claimed on many websites that activists in the Wiki community believe Wiki user THF was Ted Frank….
Frank was one of three lawyers who vetted Governor Palin before she was selected to run for Vice President on the McCain ticket. Did he have other vetting responsibilities on the McCain campaign? In particular, who on the campaign legal staff was responsible for vetting the online Certification of Live Birth that the Obama camp provided to Daily Kos and which falsely proclaimed it to be a birth certificate (and notably this online Certification of Live Birth was missing any Hawiian hospital name or attending physician’s signature)? A laser-printed, computer-generated document is clearly NOT an original birth record, but the McCain campaign seemed confused over this key point. As McCain General Counsel Trevor Pottter publicly stated about Obama’s birth rumors:
“To the extent that we could, we looked into the substantive side of these allegations,” said Potter. “We never saw any evidence that then-Senator Obama had been born outside of the United States. We saw rumors, but nothing that could be sourced to evidence. There were no statements and no documents that suggested he was born somewhere else. On the other side, there was proof that he was born in Hawaii. There was a certificate issued by the state’s Department of Health, and the responsible official in the state saying that he had personally seen the original certificate. There was a birth announcement in the Honolulu Advertiser, which would be very difficult to invent or plant 47 years in advance.” (— David Weigel 7/24/09- “McCain Campaign investigated, dismissed Obama citizenship rumors”)
When I questioned Frank about the Wiki deletion, he volunteered that he participated in a discussion about the second recreation of the article. He explained further that the rule of thumb is that Wikipedia doesn’t have articles about living people just because they’re in the news for one event. A second rule of thumb is that if there is consensus that an article should be deleted, the recreation of the article should also be deleted. He claims that he merely stated his agreement with those two rules in application to that particular case and that “the result would have been the same no matter what I said; I wasn’t the one who flagged the article.” But then he commented further, “As for Lakin himself, there’s lot to complain about when it comes to Obama–why waste resources counterproductively rehashing a discredited theory about constitutional eligibility?” And this is the rub (aside from the fact that a Wiki blogger claims THF is the user who actually deleted and redirected the entry 71 mins after another user had nominated it for deletion)- given paternal step-grandmother Sarah Obama declaring Obama was born in Kenya- and in March, a Kenyan Cabinet Minister affirming Obama’s birth in Kenya- shouldn’t Frank and others be aware that the “born in Kenya” premise is gaining traction and that their earlier comments were appallingly ill-informed?
Who advised Potter falsely that there is proof that Obama was born in Hawaii? Besides confusing terms (Certification v. certificate) Potter doesn’t appear to understand that the two birth announcements (he mentions only one) were automatically prompted by the filing of the 1961 Obama birth record- which remains CONCEALED– at Obama’s directive. Hawaii Governor Lingle never examined that original filing herself– relying entirely upon Health Director Chiyome Fukino whose initial comments on the Obama birth record were bureaucratically obtuse and guarded. Given Hawaiian standards, the Obama 1961 birth filing may be something as non-substantive and non-probative as one parental statement– missing a hospital name or doctor’s signature. Did Potter not know that two different Hawaiian hospital names were released to the press?- but neither will claim to be Obama’s birthplace? Who on the McCain campaign made these sophomoric mistakes?
How was it that McCain unfairly became the subject of a Senate hearing, was hounded by the media (the original “birthers”) and felt compelled to produce his original birth certificate to prove he was “natural born”– but never asked his rival to do the same? Did Frank and others miss what may prove to be the greatest political scandal in American history? With a decorated Army officer imminently facing jail at Fort Leavenworth- and denied the right to evidence to defend himself by the Army– it’s past time that key operatives during the 2008 presidential campaign were forced to explain their actions and at all costs, to avoid being accused of being part of the cover-up.

H/t beloved fellows Tina & Steve.

  1. OK, got it! Many thanks for the “Heads up!”
    Lord but this Obamamama is a slimey mess, from the minute he was dropped on his head. Never recovered, just Peter Principled ever higher into the feral gubbmint.
    Be assured it’s on its way to patriots and veterans who will act ASAP as fully as possible.

  2. They don’t call him John McCanus for nothing.
    I am really starting not to like that a_hole even a little bit.

  3. Hmmm!! Yes, your suspicions were correct (thank you very much!)
    Often, I wonder where is the outrage any more towards our politicians who say one thing & then sneak around doing this. McCain was never my choice in 2008.
    I guess things really haven’t changed since the November elections. I’ll be giving this new book out this holiday (all I can afford) cause it’s a thriller about Americans who take a stand. It’s a surprise ending. I recommend it.
    This is the first website that has mentioned Wikipedia article being removed. Thanks!! Good article.

  4. Thank you for this revelation. I held my nose and voted for McCain — only because I felt he “might” be the lesser of two evils. I just feel like each president we’ve had during my lifetime has been gradually turning the heat up on the American people. So, now the water is boiling on us and our “rulers” still play the game of divide and conquer. There is no difference between R and D — they’ve all been bought. What further evidence of this do we need other than stories like this one demonstrating complicity to cover the truth about a usurper president? By the way, did anyone see a reference out there recently to Sarah Palin going camping with Kate Gosselin? Hard to take her as any more than a joke anymore either. Is all this the best the American people can hope for in their leadership? They’re all trash.

  5. new to commenting here… absolutely recommend downloading this pdf from worldnetdaily The Obama Eligibility Primer and sending to your friends and family. The primer details every fact you need to know. The COLB is a “frankenstein” document. It is an absolute fraud. This must be incessantly pounded home to everyone you know and then some. Someone should print and shove it under every American’s front door. Please follow link and download free report

    • Thanks, Charles!
      Just so you know: I’ve been posting on Obama’s eligibility for the last year (and for even longer on another blog). We regulars of the Fellowship of Minds are knowledgeable about the deception. You can see my previous posts on this on The Obama Chronicles page.

    Thank you everyone for the welcome. I check in to this site, sometimes twice a day. I feel strongly that Obama is a dangerous man and must be removed from office before he can begin ruling by Executive Order. I have made it my mission to inform my family and friends about his ineligibility and the hiding of his past. I have downloaded the Free PDF file from WorldNetDaily and it is a comphrehensive detailed account of the facts from the COLB to his SSN to the Lakin Courtmarshal. I would like to know if anyone else has downloaded,read it and forwarded it to friends and family. I think it is an excellent tool to bring the facts to more people. Thanks again and here is the link.

    Steve ! Actually you don’t have download with this link. Please post on your sight MUST SEE!

  8. Update-from has either resigned or been fired!!

  9. Did I miss it ? McCain (who thinks Obama is a nice man) had his chance in the Senate Judicial Committee in 08 and blew it big time, when he (not Obama, or whatever his name is) was questioned regarding eligibility to be POTUS. As reflected in the minutes of the Committee meeting, in a discussion between Chairman Leahy and Sec. Chertoff , whereby in response to a question from Leahy, regarding a definition of a Natural Born Citizen, Chertoff reply’s, ‘a citizen born of citizen parents’ (note parents is plural) and Leahy reply’s, ‘that’s my understanding as well’. WELL THERE YOU HAVE IT! They had a clear understanding that a NBC was born of two citizen parents, contrary to all the fog and disinformation they pass out to anyone questioning it now. AND THEY ALL KNEW OBAMA WAS NOT BORN OF TWO CITIZEN PARENTS, IF ONE IS TO BELIEVE WHAT OBAMA SAYS HIMSELF, respecting the fact that Obama, Jr. is known to lie profusely. Will minutes of the meeting, ref. Resolution 511, just disappear as well? Will all politicians pay for this treachery, knowing full well that Obama, Jr. is a FAKE PRESIDENT (in my humble opinion)? Will a new President require the truth be published or will all this information continue to be hidden for the alleged ‘common good’?
