An Open Letter to Commander Charles Kerchner and Lt. Col. Terrence Lakin

CDR Charles Kerchner

As we stand on the eve of one of the most important moments in our Nation’s history,  I want to thank you for your courage, commitment, and honor in standing up for  the Constitution for the United States of America.

You both have put the safety and security of our Nation above any interest of self, fortune,  or career… something I have felt and feel personally.  I humbly acknowledge the gift you are giving our Nation…a courage so profound that the only other place it is seen is on the battlefield.

LTC Terrence Lakin

History will write of this time that there were those who stood– unabashedly and with great intellect, fundamental knowledge of our foundation and roots as Americans, and courage–against the tyranny of the usurpation of the White House by a foreign agent aided by enemies within. Your names will be among those who are the true Constitutional heroes.

Standing on Constitutional grounds, you have laid bare the deception, and carved a way to correct it and move forward.  Just the way our Founders intended.

And we, the undersigned, pledge that we have your backs no matter what happens…at this grave hour, tirelessly we too will defend our Constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic,  so help me God.

Thank you,  Sirs

    I’ve been walking this around in my head for some time:

    Clearly (1) the Kerchner case is of more than substantial national importance, (2) the political process — Congress counting/certifying Electoral votes — has been completed making the case ripe (and now not a political question), and (3) constitutional infringements of Plaintiffs have been alleged; therefore, ON WHAT BASIS CAN THE SUPREME COURT NOT FIND STANDING?

    I realize that the Court is not required to issue an opinion should it deny certiorari, but I’d be curious WHAT argument(s) COULD be made for denying cert?

    I’d be more than curious to see any — because, if cert were denied (and I pray it is granted for the sake of the Republic), it will be the subject of more than long-lasting debate and analysis.

    • 3 drkate November 28, 2010 at 2:57 pm

      Me too, Ted. Pacing. It is ripe, legal, has proven standing..the only silver lining in a denial to grant the writ is that the corruption/takeover is that deep, the republic needs to be re-formed.

  3. 4 Ted November 28, 2010 at 3:03 pm

    Dr. Kate:

    Dittos; I would propose that Attorney Appuzzo’s law office and Commander Kerchner’s residence be enshrined as national historic sites (and I’m NOT kidding) — perhaps Atty Appuzzo’s physical computer (with its contents removed) can be enshrined in the Smithsoneon.

    Depending on what comes, I would not doubt there’d be some movement for these occurrences — events are THAT important to our history.


    • 5 drkate November 28, 2010 at 3:07 pm

      Agreed, historic documents, all, and these two stand as great as the Founders, imho, as ‘re-founders’…

  4. 6 Ted November 28, 2010 at 3:05 pm

    sorry for the misspelling, Mario — “Apuzzo”

  5. 7 Jan November 28, 2010 at 3:06 pm

    I thank God every day for these two brave men and the people who have stood with them all this time.

    I pray that God will touch the hearts of the Supreme Justices and that they will do what is right for these two men and for our Country.

    I pray the case will come out of committe and go to the full court, minus the two not elligible, and they will put conscience and speed behind their decision to find our Constitution the Law of the Land.

    It is with humility that I thank CDR Charles Kerschner and LTC Terrance Lakin for their courage and their service to our Country.

    May God Bless You and keep you safe.

  6. 9 Rich T November 28, 2010 at 3:53 pm

    I to pray that this will be resolved through the courts.

    These two Patriots are true heros that rank there with Washington, Jefferson and our other Founding Fathers.

    Alas I fear that as a nation we are on the water slide at the amuesment park. Down the slide we rocket. The turns slow us a little, but in the end we gather speed for the big splash at the end. a end I fear will be splashed with the blood of Americans.

  7. 10 Dee November 28, 2010 at 4:53 pm

    Dr. Kate, I do not comment very often but I want you to know that I have been following this case via your website. I appreciate all you have done to keep us updated on what is happening and I hope that the truth will prevail. Thank you once again.

    yo barky, ever seen anything like this in your miraculous life?

    … didn’t think so. no one has.

  9. 12 True Patriot November 28, 2010 at 5:58 pm

    I have been devoting countless hours to these brave men, along with Lt. Col. Fitzpatrick who is wrongly in jail for asking Obama to produce his birth certificate. The thugs in Monroe County, Tennessee have wrongly jailed Fitzpatrick, & it is so bad the FBI may even get involved this case is so bad.

    This bunch of criminal thugs in D.C. must be brought to justice, & I do not mean the Dept. of Injustice.

    Ok my fellow Patriots enough is enough. Call the high ranking Generals and Joint Chiefs. Time for action .

    Semper Fi

  10. 13 denialator November 28, 2010 at 6:03 pm

    I join you drkate, and everyone who supports the efforts and courage of these truly great American patriots. There are many others who remain unnamed, for which we should all be thankful.

    The litany of betrayals and conspiracies designed to subjugate us and relegate our great nation to 3rd world status for the special interests of progressives, globalists, elitists and other miscreants is too vast to comprehend. Like most other noble, worthwhile endeavors, it has become a full-time job!

    Thank you for your faithfulness.

    CDR Kerchner on possible outcomes tomorrow:

    Let us pray to God that the Supreme Court Justices made the correct decision which is to support and defend the Constitution per their oath and to pursue the search for the truth about the exact citizenship status of Obama and grant us an Order of Certiorari and take up the case, or Order the Lower Court to take up the case, or at least issue an Order to the DOJ ordering them to respond to the Petition, which would indicate that the necessary number of Justices are considering granting Cert but just wish to give the Obama side and the DOJ another crack at them to say why they should not grant us Cert.

    We’ll know shortly after 10 a.m. tomorrow. We’ll know then if we still are a nation of laws of which the U.S. Constitution is the fundamental and foundational written law of our land. Pray they voted to defend the Constitution and grant Cert.

  12. 17 drkate November 28, 2010 at 8:39 pm

    An example of the dedication of CDR Kerchner are all the advertorials placed in the newspaper since may 2009. Each one of these cost $3,800…

    MUST READ: The CRS Memo

    Jack Maskell, a CRS Legislative Attorney drew the “short straw” and was assigned to provide members of Congress with legal cover. Maskell’s recently-discovered memorandum, dated April 3, 2009 and distributed to all members of Congress, contains the following words:

    “Many of the inquiries have questioned why then-Senator, and now President, Obama has not had to produce an original, so-called ‘long’ version of a ‘birth certificate’ from the State of Hawaii, how federal candidates are ‘vetted’ for qualifications generally, and have asked for an assessment of the various allegations and claims of non-eligibility status…

    “Concerning the production or release of an original birth certificate, it should be noted that there is no federal law, regulation, rule, guideline, or requirement that a candidate for federal office produce his or her original birth certificate, or a certified copy of the record of live birth, to any official of the United States government; nor is there a requirement for federal candidates to publicly release such personal record or documentation. Furthermore, there is no specific federal agency or office that ‘vets’ candidates for federal office as to qualifications or eligibility prior to return.”

    Clearly, Mr. Maskell overlooked the words of the 20th Amendment, which reads in part, “If a president shall not have been chosen before the time fixed for the beginning of his term, or if the President elect shall have failed to qualify, then the Vice President elect shall act as President until a President shall have qualified…”

    When members of Congress swear that they will “support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic,” and that they will “bear true faith and allegiance to the same… so help me God,” they take upon themselves, by direct implication, the obligation to rule on the qualifications of those who emerge from the Electoral College as President and Vice President-elect… in spite of what Jack Maskell’s opinion might be.

  14. 20 drkate November 28, 2010 at 9:50 pm

    More responsible press:

    The thing that makes this case unqiue is that so far, out of all similar petitions concerning the Supreme Court’s conferring on the merits of Presidential eligibility, this is the only one that focuses on the so-called ‘Vattel Theory,’ which maintains that when the Framers used the term ‘natural born citizen’ in the Constitution to define Presidential eligibility, they were referring to a person born in the United States to parents who were both U.S. citizens at the time of the birth.

    The context in which the Constitution was written appears to support such an assertion.

      I want to say some other things, but I know blogs are being monitored and what I want to say would bring federal agents to my door.

      I think we all know what will ultimately have to be done to take back control of our country…It won’t be pleasant.

      • 26 heather November 29, 2010 at 12:42 pm

        Oh Dr kate—I am standing in line with you and I also ask God for their ultimate punishment.

        This is how much they hate all American citizens!–They have proven time and again, none of them are law abiding citizens and because they sit on that bench with black robes they think they are above the law. It is time we the people show them the law and how it reads.

  18. 27 Troy November 29, 2010 at 9:42 am

    Denied without comment!…Just like I predicted…Their only choice, without indicting themselves for treason, was to deny it and they simply CAN’T comment because there is NOTHING they can say that would legally justify their denial…Basically, anything that they could say, at this point, would indict them.

    I hope that the upper military brass will finally step in and and seize control of the government or else there will have to be an awful lot of innocent patriotic blood shedding to correct the wrongs.

  19. 28 tiger 7 November 29, 2010 at 9:45 am

    Unfortunately, it is indeed no surprise. What, if anything, does the granting of amicus curiae mean ???

    I’m sure glad I live in Texas— session looks better all the time!!

  20. 30 Troy November 29, 2010 at 9:53 am

    Now, Apuzzo/Kerchner will file an appeal to reconsider which will go to only one justice (probably Kagan) at which time it will be tossed into the SCOTUS trash bin…Sorry to sound so negative, but that is what is going to happen.

    Any illusions of a democratic republic for the people and by the people must now also be tossed into the trash bin.

    Just waitin’ for the first shot to be fired.

  21. 31 madeleine7 November 29, 2010 at 10:09 am

    May Almighty God take note of this terrible injustice to Lt. Col. Larkin and company . May His justice be swift and full.

  22. 32 Rosemary Woodhouse November 29, 2010 at 10:09 am

    Sorry, my friends- I was going to post something yesterday, but the tone here was so earnestly hopeful that I didn’t want to “rain on your parade”. But honestly, did you *really* expect a different outcome?

    You still want people to play by the rules because you do. I get it. I am one of you. But the harsh realization must set in at some point that the rules have changed. Honor, chivalry and civility are up to We, the People to restore. This will only happen if there are, in fact, enough of us (ponder that for a moment, please!) and we make a concerted effort to genuinely- not haphazardly(!!) – organize before the net is heavily censored -which I sense is the reason behind this Wikileaks “Reichtag” event for the virtual age.

    I hate to be a bucket of ice water, but somebody has to do it. With respect and great regard for all of you, RW

    • 33 True Patriot November 29, 2010 at 10:14 am

      You are correct Margaret. As for Wikileaks you are correct again.

      The Russians are controlling Wikileaks and are now empowered as they have their illegal communist muslim usurping fraud infiltrating our White House, and that vile, mean , evil, nasty Moochele aka Mrs. Darth Vader.

      So sorry Darth Vader, did not mean to highly offend you.

      You do not deserve to be tied to this evil demon.

    • 34 Troy November 29, 2010 at 10:15 am

      I couldn’t agree with you more!

    • 35 drkate November 29, 2010 at 1:00 pm

      Rosemary, I think we were all prepared for this…but it still doesn’t ease the hurt, anger…which must come as we have to get through this to figure it out.

      As I wrote this post we are commenting in, I cried. It was my sign last night.

      This had to happen so we would be disavowed of all our faith in the current people in all three branches of government. The Republic’s ideas are still valid, and worth fighting for.

      And that’s the turning point. We have exhausted nearly all of our legal remedies, save massive civil disobedience. The Continental Congress put out the Articles of Freedom. We have warned them.

      They bring this fate on themselves.

    We have got to get the little communist usrping bastard out of the White House…We’re running out of time.

    Report warns Obama about ‘new’ Dark Ages
    ‘Airplanes would fall from sky, cars would stop, networks fail’
    Posted: November 28, 2010
    6:09 pm Eastern

    By Bob Unruh

    Two national-security experts have issued a report through the Heritage Foundation that warns Obama administration officials to start working now to prevent – and mitigate the damage from – an electromagnetic pulse attack on the United States because of the potential for “unimaginable devastation.”

    “Not even a global humanitarian effort would be enough to keep hundreds of millions of Americans from death by starvation, exposure, or lack of medicine. Nor would the catastrophe stop at U.S. borders. Most of Canada would be devastated, too, as its infrastructure is integrated with the U.S. power grid. Much of the world’s intellectual brain power (half of it is in the United States) would be lost as well. Earth would most likely recede into the ‘new’ Dark Ages,” states the report by James J. Carafano, the deputy director of the Kathryn and Shelby Cullom Davis Institute for International Studies and director of the Douglas and Sarah Allison Center for Foreign Policy Studies, and Richard Weitz, senior fellow and director of the Center for Politial-Military Analysis at the Hudson Institute.

    The report, which is described by the Heritage Foundation as a “backgrounder,” is titled “EMP Attacks – What the U.S. Must Do Now” and was released just days ago, says what is needed right now is for the government to “prevent the threat,” by pursuing “an aggressive protect-and-defend strategy, including comprehensive missile defense; modernizing the U.S. nuclear deterrent; and adopting proactive nonproliferation and counterproliferation measures.”

    Do you want to keep up on the EMP threat? Subscribe to the publication that broke the story in 2004 – Joseph Farah’s G2 Bulletin.

    Further, measures are needed to add to the “resilience” of the electrical grid and telecommunications systems, including duplicating some essential functions, and “robust” pre-disaster planning should be going on now for “federal, state, local private-sector, non-government organizations and international support,” the report said.

    Justices kagan and sotomayor were bound by traditional rules of conduct to recuse themselves, but they did not. That means to grant Certiorari, four Justices would have had to concur (perhaps with the proper recusals only three would have been required — don’t know for sure).

    Along with kagan and sotomayor, Jutices Ginsburg, Breyer and Kennedy would have likely voted to deny. If any Justices would have voted to grant Certiorari, it would have be been the three most conservative ones, Justices Scalia, Thomas and Alito.

    That means Chief Justice Robberts must have voted to deny. Should these details be part of the public record?

    It is astounding that kagan and sotomayor did not recuse themselves. It is so blatantly improper.

    • 38 heather November 29, 2010 at 1:11 pm

      This entire government state and federal are all in cohoots together–Oklahoma’s state question to ban sharia law from our courts has just added a temporary injuction in FAVOR of the muslim man who appealed OUR LAW!

      OMG—I would say, our time has run out. The people have no voice, no representation, no constitution to stand for us.

  25. 39 Troy November 29, 2010 at 10:25 am

    More dots to connect…Have a look at this…You will need to spend a little time with this.

  26. 40 True Patriot November 29, 2010 at 10:38 am

    This Camelot Productions propaganda is just that. I stayed on the 9-11 stories after loosing 2 of my best friends on that day, not to mention many other great Americans who died.

    This is the trash the Soviets have put out, and this 9-11 inside job crap is just that crap.

    I all most believed it, but after much research to seek the truth, this is a Communist infiltrated myth.

    9-11 was not an inside job, but the Russians are hiding behind the violent, evil savage muslims, to distract from overthrowing our government.

    One only has to look at Putin and dig deep to find out, Putin and his evil rogue thugs, have planted this into American Society to distract and destroy.

    Then once you connect those dots, they lead us back to our now illegal communist muslim usurping fraud and Jihadist Obamamow Se Tung. His grandparents, and mother were devout Communist, his father was a devout Communist, and everyone this usurping “Hell Spawn” has hung out with are Communist, and Communist overthrow governments. This is what the Soviets do best.

    Just when you thought we were fighting cave men!

    Go to and go into the tons of articles on the Communism and Marxism in America.

    Also read the truth about the 9-11 propaganda. It was not an inside job, but the Russians want you to believe it was to further distract from this overthrow of our government we are seeing unfold right before our eyes.

    • 41 Troy November 29, 2010 at 10:53 am

      The interview wasn’t put out by Project Camelot…It was simply passed on by them and also by several others.

      The info in the interview doesn’t suggest an “inside job” on 9/11…Quite the contrary…It suggests a foreign attack – just not the one that has been sold to the public.

      I haven’t formed an opinion on the info as of yet…Still digging.

  27. 42 Troy November 29, 2010 at 10:57 am

    Also read the truth about the 9-11 propaganda. It was not an inside job, but the Russians want you to believe it was to further distract from this overthrow of our government we are seeing unfold right before our eyes.

    Interesting analysis, because that is exactly what the interview is alluding to – a Russian operation.

  28. 43 Paula November 29, 2010 at 11:07 am

    I’m losing hope for peaceful resolution to this crisis. We cannot operate under a government of lawlessness! I had regained some hope that, perhaps, with this case, we might have justice upheld, but my hope has fallen flat, and I’m back to my original concerns that we the people will have to be the ones to hold these evildoers accountable or live under tyranny…in my estimation and limited understanding, it is just that black and white. Is it not time for military intervention…but do they know who they serve, anymore? Are they even aware of the magnitude of the situation in this country? I just don’t know.

    What is left?

    I didn’t expect Sotomayor or Kagan to be recused; blatant disrespect for the rule of law and total conflict of interest! I’m disgusted. Where are the men and women with authority who have good character and will do what is right in this nation?

  29. 44 Troy November 29, 2010 at 11:13 am

    True Patriot,

    I went back to the Camelot link that I posted and it seems that you read Kerry Cassidy’s opinon that 9/11 was an inside job and then possibly quit reading…Her “opinion” has absolutely nothing to do with the interview further down the page.

  30. 45 Troy November 29, 2010 at 11:15 am

    I’m curious…Is there anyone that doubts that our government and military and now the supreme court have been infiltrated at the highest levels by communists/marxists?

  31. 47 Troy November 29, 2010 at 11:26 am

    If a government is rife with communists at it’s highest levels and the country of which that government rules is then stricken with a communist backed attack on it’s mainland, has there been an “inside job” conducted?…Would aiding and abetting be considered an inside job?

  32. 48 Troy November 29, 2010 at 11:32 am

    Question: What is the Alinsky communist/marxist plan for the United States?

    Answer: To overwhelm the capitalist system. To totally destroy capitalism from within by ANY and ALL means.

  33. 49 Ginger November 29, 2010 at 11:39 am

    If I had the money or lived close to the Supreme Court I would have my blow horn and sign and would not leave until I was dragged off!

    Troy I know they are all corrupt. I have so much info. coming in it is like trying to catch bullets at this point.

    They in the Supreme Court, and all our judicial and political systems are completely corrupt.

    I am in a TRUST NO ONE MODE when it comes to anything to do with this bunch of thugs that has overthrown our government, but there is plenty of accurate info that the Russians were involved in the 9-11 inside job propaganda.

    No I don’t doubt it for one minute. They are all corrupt and can not be trusted. They are all now the enemy.

    Make no mistake about it.

    • 54 heather November 29, 2010 at 1:25 pm

      And if this is the case I need to include GWB in this coup! As much respect and admiration I once had for him is gone—he knew. Now take notice to his interviews that he is now doing about his book. Watch his actions and facial expressions and know that he was aware–if he wasn’t he sure would be coming out against this coup and he is NOT!

      He refuses to say a word–other than to defend his actions of sending the troops and starting this war. Seems odd-that he would stand down when he pretends to stand with out country.

  36. 55 terminu November 29, 2010 at 1:20 pm

  37. 56 True Patriot November 29, 2010 at 1:31 pm

    The only thing I can say is if our forefathers had not bravely fought for liberty and freedoms, we would never have been able to enjoy America. I would rather fight then switch, and I feel there are millions of us out here, if they will just speak up.

    And to all traitors of the U.S., get out now. You do not deserve to be here.
