President Trump: About Terry Lakin

By Jim O’Neill

We the people of the United States, in order to form a more perfect union, establish justice, insure domestic tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general welfare, and secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.

Preamble to the United States Constitution

As military officers, we owe our ultimate loyalty not to superior officers or even to the president, but rather, to the Constitution.”

Lt. Gen. Thomas G. McInerney  (USAF Ret.)

“I think many in the military – and many out of the military – question the natural-birth status of Barack Obama.”  

Major General Paul E. Vallely (US Army Ret.)

First off – will Congress and/or SCOTUS please get off their collective butts and clearly, emphatically, and unequivocally define exactly what is meant by “Natural Born” from Article II, Section 1, Clause 5 of the US Constitution? 

Good God, it is unbelievable that such a vitally important term has not been legally and clearly defined so that there is no question what it means.  I realize that the wheels of government move slowly, and I don’t mean to sound impatient, but hey, it’s been over 200 years.  Just saying.

Depending on how “Natural Born” is defined (and you can take your pick from several differing interpretations) then Obama was, or was not, legally POTUS – and Ted Cruz, Marco Rubio, and Bobby Jindal (to mention a few) can, or cannot, legally become President of the United States.  So, this is a very important point, a very big deal.

Personally, I believe that the term “Natural Born” refers to a person born in the United States (or a territory under US jurisdiction) to parents who are both US citizens at the time of the “Natural Born” citizen’s birth.  But legal precedents aside (e.g. “Minor v. Happersett” and “United States v. Wong Kim Ark”) the definition of “Natural Born” remains murky – at least in the minds of many.  So, Congress, SCOTUS — earn your pay, do your job (finally).

This article is about Terry Lakin, and defining the term “Natural Born” may seem an unwarranted distraction in that context…but Obama’s eligibility to be POTUS is a big part of Terry’s story, so the importance of officially defining “Natural Born” is an apropos issue to discuss.  In any event, time to get into the meat of this article.

Although Terry’s story was front page news several years ago, many of our attention spans are less than optimal (mine included), so perhaps a brief refresher on his case is in order.  What follows is a short synopsis of what made him so newsworthy.

In 2010 Terry Lakin was a Lieutenant Colonel (LTC) in the US Army when he was sent orders for redeployment to Afghanistan.  To make a long story short, LTC Lakin refused to go to Afghanistan because he had serious doubts regarding Obama’s qualifications to be Commander in Chief (sometimes abbreviated as CINC — pronounced “sink”) of the US military.

“My motivation stems from my oath of office to defend and uphold the Constitution, it’s the constitution that needs to be upheld.”

LTC Terry Lakin

[Sidebar: LTC Lakin’s medals and decorations include the Army Flight Surgeon Badge, Combat Medical Badge, the Bronze Star Medal, the Meritorious Service Medal, the Army Commendation Medal with two Oak Leaf Clusters, the Army Achievement Medal with one Oak Leaf Cluster, the National Defense Service Medal with Bronze Service Star, the Armed Forces Expedition Medal, the Army Reserve Component Achievement Medal, the Army Service Ribbon, the Overseas Service Ribbon sixth award and the NATO service medal.  End of Sidebar]

You may recall that on his first full day as CINC Obama enacted Executive Order 13489, which in essence sealed his past history from public scrutiny.  The President of the United States does not want “we the people” to know who he is?  WTF?  At least that was my reaction – and I was hardly alone.  Shortly afterwards the so called “birther movement” grew legs and took off running.

Among the many records the Obama camp has refused to release are the marriage license of his father (Barack Sr.) and mother (Stanley Ann Dunham), name-change records (Barry Soetero to Barack Hussein Obama), adoption records, records of his and his mother’s repatriation as U.S. citizens from Indonesia, baptism records, Noelani Elementary School (Hawaii) records, Punahou School financial aid or school records, Occidental College financial aid records, Harvard Law School records, Columbia senior thesis, Columbia College records, record with Illinois State Bar Association, files from his terms as an Illinois state senator, his law client list, medical records and passport records.

Bob Urah “Sheriff’s probe finds Obama birth certificate ‘fake’

The reaction of the MSM globalist propaganda machine to the birther movement was immediate, vociferous, and massive.  Ridicule (rule #5 of Alinsky’s “Rules for Radicals) and smoke ‘n’ mirrors obfuscation were employed in a firehose stream of denial and derision.  I wrote about it at the time:

Let’s pretend for a moment that we’re not all being treated like mentally challenged six-year-olds, and that it’s out on the table that the current POTUS has been blatantly hiding his past from the American electorate. Let’s also pretend that neither the media, nor our judicial system, find it laughably funny when “we the people” insist on knowing the REAL history of the person running America’s economy, military, and domestic/foreign policies.  If we pretend all those things, then it makes perfect sense to question Obama’s eligibility to be POTUS….

Adding to LTC Lakin’s concerns was the fact that according to the official narrative, Obama’s father was a Kenyan who was never a US citizen, let alone at the time of the CINC’s birth – which according to the definition of “Natural Born” mentioned above, made Obama constitutionally ineligible to be POTUS.  It is also of note that Obama’s long form birth certificate was not released (digital copy only) until after LTC Lakin was court-martialed, found guilty, and sent to prison.

[Sidebar: In order to silence critics of the digital representation of his short form birth certificate, on April 27, 2011 Obama released a digital version of his long form birth certificate.  The years long Arpaio/Zullo investigation strongly suggests that Obama’s online long form birth certificate is a forgery.  End of Sidebar]

Before going any further, let me state that this article is not about taking sides on the question of Obama’s eligibility to be POTUS, or the particulars of his birth.  It is concerned with the grave injustice done to LTC Lakin.  I have simply been laying out the historical background surrounding Terry Lakin’s trial and imprisonment in order to provide context.

I am basically pounding two drums (and only two) in this article: (1) that the term “Natural Born” be clearly defined by Congress or the SCOTUS, and (2) that Terry Lakin is an American hero who deserves the “Medal of Freedom” or “Congressional Gold Medal” for his valorous defense of the US Constitution.

LTC Lakin took the stand that he did because of the sort of man that he was, and is – a stalwart American patriot whose love of country, honesty, honor, and belief in the US Constitution should make him an exemplar to every man and woman in uniform.  Heck, to every American patriot.

In late 2010 he was found guilty of failing to obey orders and stripped of his rank and benefits.  He was sent to the military prison at Fort Leavenworth, Kansas.  He served his time and has been a free man since May of 2011.

Recently a petition was started to “Reinstate Lt. Col. Terry Lakin into the U.S. Army with full rank, pay, benefits and pension immediately.”  I received an email from Terry a couple of days ago – the excerpt below should give you a glimpse of the man’s character.

Gary [Wilmott] started the petition.  It got out there.  I’m not holding my breath that much will come of it.  My friend Marco, Charles Kerchner, Erik Rush, Peter Boyles and others have all jumped in to help.  

 Personally, I’m patient.  I think Trump has a lot to do.  …I have been blessed by the Lord and am providing for my family and others.  I cannot forget that there are so many others still in Leavenworth [whose cases are more urgent].

Given his hitherto unblemished record, undeniable professionalism, unquestioned patriotism, and respect for the US Constitution, LTC Lakin could have, and should have, received much better treatment at the hands of the US Army.  The Army’s railroading of LTC Lakin was disgraceful and a stain on their honor.  The whole thing stinks of the political intrigues surrounding “The Dreyfus Affair.”

As Terry notes, President Trump no doubt has bigger fish to fry at the moment (and for some time to come one suspects), but, when he finds the time, I believe that an official Presidential pardon for LTC Terry Lakin is in order.  I have full faith that President Trump will do the right thing when time allows.

Dog’s Purpose Movie Thrives Despite PETA’s Attacks–Review

by Rev. Austin Miles

dogspurposebookcover

BOISE, 1/28/17–Do not–repeat, DO NOT MISS THE BEAUTIFUL MOVIE, A Dog’s Purpose, no matter what the bogus animal protection group, PETA, claims in order to keep you from attending. Those hippie types have organized boycott petitions for this movie with 68,000 signatures while using their own fake news press releases to dissuade patrons from buying tickets to the most meaningful film that one could ever see.

Don’t fall for this. Go and see this movie without delay. It is a totally satisfying and fulfilling movie. And if you love animals, such as this columnist, you will be greatly moved. Indeed, when you go home, you will want to give extra hugs to your own pets with the feeling that you know them better after seeing this expertly crafted film that truly captures the personality and inner feelings of a dog.

It is to be noted that all of PETA’s efforts to sabotage this movie, part of their shakedown for profit, is based upon lies.They LIED about an incident they claimed took place during the filming of this wonderful movie. They falsely claimed that a “terrified” German Shepherd was thrown into the rapids, and once in the water, went under, with personnel rushing in to “rescue” it.

That dog was in no danger. The “rapids” were created in a huge water tank constructed on set. The dog had rehearsed the dramatic scene several times where he rescues a kidnapped little girl who had been thrown into the rapids by her abductor. Being at the time a K-9 police dog, he jumped in to rescue her, going under water to pull her to the top, then to the shore.

The dog had rehearsed the scene, at another location at the tank, and balked at having to do this in a location he was not familiar with. PETA profited by selling a video of this supposed event to TV networks and sent releases to print newspapers, milking it for all it was worth to raise money for their organization and to shake down producers. They are an extortion racket under the guise of being an animal protection agency, which they are not.

That video they claimed was so urgent, was taped over NINE MONTHS AGO. So if PETA reps were on set, and videotaped this, why didn’t they jump in and put a stop to the production and get the dog to safety if this had really happened? They had no interest in the animal.They actually kill more animals than they “save.”  While I support several animal rescue organizations I would not give PETA one penny.

It was all a ploy to gain them publicity at the opening of a movie based on an all time best-selling book. They virtually hijacked the advance publicity and anticipation in order to bring all that attention to themselves. Publicity is their motivation. How many remember when these nutty PETA woman stripped totally nude in a very public area of San Francisco to protest the wearing of fur. This alone shows what they are all about.

Plus, the carefully examined video was shown to be heavily edited to make it appear to be an event that was not. Again, PETA LIED to make a case to bring them publicity and stimulate donations at the expense of the movie company and movie goers who would be deprived of seeing an excellent film.

And it is to be added, that PETA executes animals in their shelters, not even keeping them in there for the required time mandated by law so that their owners have time to come and claim them. They even kidnap dogs and euthanize them in the van taking the innocent animal away. They should never present themselves as an animal protective organization.

But wait, don’t they do some good? They do. But remember, even a stopped clock is right twice a day.

The nation wide-release of the film had good attendance for the first two days of their opening weekend. even though the PETA protests did result in lower ticket sales. Fortunately, the pickets could not be at the theater I attended with my family, since it was in a shopping center on private property. It was good that they could not perform their feigned concern there. If they had tried to block me they would have quickly learned that the laws of gravity are still intact.

Then there are those ‘reviewers’ who snickered at the film with words like, “fluff, syrupy, tear-jerker, overly sentimental, schmaltzy ” and they even criticized the words the dog audibly thought, for instance, when he expressed love for Ethan’s girl friend by thinking, “I like her. She smells like cheese.” This is probably how a dog would think. Yet this misguided critic took issue with the animal’s thought.

These “reviewers” have a problem with expressing love, emotion or deep feelings. They believe in showing no emotion no matter what happens. They are hard-hearted and unfeeling. They are the kind of parents who will not say the words, “I love you,” to their wives and children. As a chaplain I constantly deal with the wives and offspring of those sorry individuals. They are incapable of having deep feelings. So their “reviews” are not worth even reading. There is no honesty in them.

THE MOVIE: This film traces a dog’s life, through several lives. When he dies, he becomes another dog, but with the same knowledge and deep feelings for certain people. From the beginning the dog named Bailey is wondering what his purpose is in life. We hear his thoughts and feelings with a wonderful voice job by Josh Gad

His purpose becomes clearer and clearer with each life he lives. The film ends with the most touching and wonderful conclusion one could ever hope for as everything in his life comes together in a most remarkable way.

The cast is great, believable and handle their roles so realistically that the audience feels they are witnessing a real event. Ethan is a main character who comes in the story as a very young boy played by Bryce Gheisar.  K.J. Apa plays him as a teenager.  We see him age, played by Dennis Quaid, with a powerful final scene when he realizes the spirit of the dog he had loved and grown up with was in another dog’s body that Bailey now inhabited.

The touching ending could not be better. What great writing by the author of the book, W. Bruce Cameron. The movie was true to the book with only a couple of minor exceptions but this did not distract or alter the content of the book.

Do support this film with your attendance. The animals were NOT mistreated in the slightest. They are all absolutely charming and you can’t help but fall in love with all of them. This film gets four stars from this reviewer. PETA gets four enemas.

Texans Preparing and To Take On Local Radical Muslims

Muslim Immigrant Rape Invasion Now In Texas

Swedish Police Overwhelmed by Muslim Violence

Muslims taking over Sweden

The letter followed reports that potential witnesses in the murder of a 16-year-old Iraqi boy, Ahmed Obaid, murdered in the city’s Rosengard district on January 14, were reluctant to provide any accounts after racist threats directed at his former schoolmates were posted under the photo of his dead body.

“They are scared. They are terrified and are wondering who’s going to be shot next,” the school’s headmaster told Swedish Sydsvenskan newspaper, as cited by the Local.

“People lie and tell untruths to [mis]direct us. It is a problem for us”, former investigator JB Cederholm told Sydsvenskan.

Rosengard, which has received media attention as the “most notorious refugee ghetto” of Sweden, has an over 80 percent migrant population, predominantly of Middle Eastern, African and Eastern European origin. It has repeatedly been a scene of gang and multi-ethnic violence and is prone to social unrest, with less than 40 percent of its residents having a job.

The teenager was living in Sweden since early childhood after his family sought asylum there. He was shot while standing next to bus stop and later died of his wounds. Police reported that several witnesses were present at the scene at the time of the shooting.

“We fled war and misery to find a safe place. And then this happens,” the father of the boy told Sydsvenskan.

In his open letter, Sinteus specifically mentioned Obaid’s murder and an attempted murder of another teenager on Saturday, pledging to deploy all necessary means to push forward both investigations.

To help Malmö police to tackle what Sinteus described as “an upward spiral [of violence] of large dimensions,” reinforcements from the National Operations Department (NOA) were sent to Malmo last week and the extra police officers are expected to reach the city next week, he wrote. A total of 130 police staff are currently working exclusively on investigation of serious offenses.

“Malmö police are currently investigating 11 murders and 80 attempted murders. Add to that other crimes of violence, beatings, rapes, thefts and frauds,” Senteus said, admitting his department is “extremely strained” by a lack of staff.

It is not the first time that Malmö, the third largest city in Sweden and home to a large migrant population, has raised the alarm about the increasing wave of violence. In July last year, a spate of shootings, blasts and arsons that followed the sentencing of three men for complicity in the Christmas Eve bombing in Rosengard prompted the local police force to appeal to their colleagues at a national level for “shared expertise.”

At the time, Lars Förstell, a spokesperson for the city’s police told RT that some 30 to 40 people with criminal backgrounds have been involved in gang-related and ethnic crimes linked to drug trafficking and other illegal operations.

“It’s more of a business-like conflict,” he said.

In September, four people were injured in shooting and a car chase.

The already uneasy situation with crime, believed to be aggravated by an inflow of undocumented asylum seekers, prompted Swedish authorities to introduce so-called no-go zones, the number of which rose to 55 in September.

In case of Obaid, however, the police do not consider his death to be a result of gang violence, as the boy did not have any criminal record and was unknown to police.

Obstructing The Trump Agenda?

Why Cartel-Funded Nieto Opposes Trump’s Wall

Congress already granted Trump ability to build wall

It’s no secret that a vast amount of illegal drugs, trafficked humans, criminals and potential terrorists have poured over the southern border of the U.S. from Mexico in recent years, leading to an increase in violent crimes that has put a burden on U.S. authorities.

Now, with the swoop of a pen, President Donald J. Trump has set forth to secure the border once and for all.

By using provisions allowed in the Immigration and Nationality Act, the Secure Fence Act of 2006, and the Illegal Immigration Reform and Immigrant Responsibility Act of 1996 as well as other U.S. laws, the president signed an executive order on Jan. 25 titled “Border Security and Immigration Improvements” to help make America great again.

“Border security is critically important to the national security of the United States,” the executive order explains. “Aliens who illegally enter the United States without inspection or admission present a significant threat to national security and public safety. […] The purpose of this order is to direct executive departments and agencies (agencies) to deploy all lawful means to secure the Nation’s southern border, to prevent further illegal immigration into the United States, and to repatriate illegal aliens swiftly, consistently, and humanely.”

This new measure will be the first step in – once and for all – securing the southern U.S. border “through the immediate construction of a physical wall.”

Furthermore, a provision will allow for U.S. authorities to actually take action and “detain individuals apprehended on suspicion of violating Federal or State law,” which has been an issue and a struggle in the past as outlined by Sherrif Joe Arpaio on many occasions.

Additionally, “individuals whose legal claims to remain in the United States have been lawfully rejected, after any appropriate civil or criminal sanctions have been imposed” may also be removed, which will ultimately clean up the mess previously left by unfit bureaucrats in Washington.

To top it all off, the job market will also be bolstered.

This will be done by intensifying security around the free zone and the Commissioner of U.S. Customs and Border Protection has been instructed to “take all appropriate action to hire 5,000 additional Border Patrol agents,” making it a win-win situation for Americans.

Just think, the construction of the wall will likely include the need for engineers, foremans, construction workers, heavy equipment operators, masons, surveyors, general laborers and much more. The massive infrastructure project will lead to many new American jobs, which is a good thing.

However, the construction of the wall has caused quite the controversy with several Mexican figureheads, like the current President of Mexico Enrique Peña Nieto and former Mexican president Vicente Fox.

During a recent interview on MSNBC, Fox recently compared President Donald Trump to “Hitler” and the GOP to the “Nazi Party” and said that the current president has no intentions of paying for the wall as detailed by Trump on many occasions.

And on Friday, following a series of tweets by President Trump, Mexico’s president Nieto announced that he will not be meeting with Trump anytime soon and talk about Mexico not supplying the U.S. with much needed agricultural products, such as corn and other vegetables, has surfaced in the media.

Trump tweeted:

Donald J. Trump

@realDonaldTrump

The U.S. has a 60 billion dollar trade deficit with Mexico. It has been a one-sided deal from the beginning of NAFTA with massive numbers…

But Trump likely will not waver on the issue and made it clear on Twitter Friday that “Mexico has taken advantage of the U.S. for long enough” and sent a stern message to the Mexican president that things must change.

Donald J. Trump

@realDonaldTrump

Mexico has taken advantage of the U.S. for long enough. Massive trade deficits & little help on the very weak border must change, NOW!

But maybe that’s because the Mexican President was funded by the Juarez Cartel and that’s why he is against the Trump border plan.

Intellihub’s Alex Thomas reported Thursday:

In March 2016, the independent news outlet Aristegui Noticias released a highly detailed in-depth investigation into the dealings between top Juarez Cartel officials and Mexico’s Revolutionary Institutional Party (PRI) during the 2012 political campaign that resulted in the victory of Enrique Pena Nieto.

The bombshell revelations came in a three-part series that revealed that high-level members of the Juarez Cartel, using a company called Monex, financed thousand of cash cards that were in turn handed out by the PRI during the campaign.

[…]

It is also important to note that the reality of the current situation in Mexico, with the blessing of Nieto, includes the shocking fact that “paramilitary narco-cartels” literally control entire Mexican states.

Sadly, this information has been ignored throughout the corporate media coverage of the dust up between Trump and the Mexican president as if it just isn’t important enough for the American people to actually know.

Sanctuary Sheriff Faces Removal From Office For Aiding Criminal Illegals

Sheriff Hernandez blocking feds from rounding up felon illegals

“As local law enforcement officers, we will not interrogate or arrest someone over an unrelated federal immigration matter if they are trying to report a crime,” she said.

Hernandez is contending that state law enforcement cannot constitutionally be drafted into service by federal agencies, which is true – but it appears to be a straw man argument.

Judging by the letter, Abbott seems more interested in allowing ICE to remove illegals from the streets who were already arrested by Texas officials for committing – not simply reporting – serious crimes.

“For one, these sheriff offices receive grants from the governor’s office and we’re cutting off those grants to any sanctuary city in the State of Texas,” he said on Fox & Friends. “But, however, we are in a legislative session and we’re working on laws that will #1 ban sanctuary cities and #2 remove from office any office holder who promotes sanctuary cities while also imposing criminal penalties as well as financial penalties.”
