Courage and Betrayal

©2010 drkate

As reported here,  the government’s own witness–Lt. Christine Edwards, kicked open the eligibility door when she testified before the Military Panel that she knew that LTC Lakin’s reason for refusing to deploy was the question of Obama’s eligibility.  While that could have opened the door to further questioning on this issue in a normal fair proceeding, recall that Judge Lind struck down any part of Lakin’s defense that would require proof of Obama’s eligibility.  Further, during Judge Lind’s questioning of Lt. Col. Lakin on his previous guilty pleas, she reminded him that his conscience was not a reason to disobey an order.

The prosecution, upon that little ‘slip’, immediately shut down that part of her testimony and re-focused her attention on the ” Roberts-directed order” to Lt. Col. Lakin to get on a specific plane flight. Conveniently, Col. Roberts–the Medal of Honor winner–was recalled to  “remember” that he had told Lt. Campbell to tell Lakin to get on ‘that’ plane.

How interesting that the defense did not pick up on, challenge or pursue that discrepancy in testimony. This was one of many small signals that a script was in play.

The Defense Rests

On Wednesday,  the defense rested its case without calling any witnesses.  :eek:

While this was a surprise to most in the courtroom “gallery” except the family and certain individuals, it was a choice based on the work of the day before…and based on the fact that LTC Lakin had been denied the opportunity to present a full defense.

While we were picking up our jaws from off the floor, the Panel was given jury instructions by Judge Lind, which had been agreed to in advance by both prosecution and defense counsel.  The Panel left the court room.

Guarded optimism that the military jurors understood the essence of Puckett’s argument was quickly dashed when the panel sent back a question to the Court as to the meaning of the word “require”.  :roll:  If high ranking officers on a jury are asking that kind of question, it seemed that the fate of LTC Lakin was sealed.

The Script Emerges

It appeared scripted strange that the defense objected to one of the questions  whose answer would have been helpful to Lakin.  That was an inquiry as to when LTC Lakin’s replacement was in place at Ft. Campbell, and was presumably aimed at the ‘missing movement’ charge which Puckett had earlier argued was the  Army’s ‘piling on’ of charges to get more jail time.  Counsel disclosed that Lakin’s replacement was at Ft. Campbell on April 26, only 14 days after Lakin refused to deploy. The prosecution focused on the inconvenience to the replacement and his wife, and indirectly implied that the death of one of the men in Afghanistan and his replacement’s additional responsibility was the fault of Lt. Col. Lakin’s failure to follow orders. That statement went unchallenged as would have been a ‘fact not in evidence’ nor relevant to the inquiry.

The military had been adamant that Lakin’s actions were disruptive and caused the Army to scramble, but it looks like the replacement was found immediately….so…why wouldn’t the defense want the jurors to hear that?

Less than a half hour after those questions were presented,  the jury returned with a verdict of ‘guilty’ on the single count of “missing movement,” the charge carrying the most jail time–36 months.

There were other signs…the statements and demeanor of some of the family members, and indeed, their collaboration with the obvious, unpatriotic obots in the room.   The pressure on Lakin from all sides is more than most of us can imagine or would be able to bear.

The roughing up of Pastor Manning the day before; being locked into the courtroom for quite a while–known only to the smokers–with many police cars surrounding the area, the ‘dropped’ rumor that violence and disruption was expected from us…those also were  signs.

Time stood still in that rarefied moment of courage and breathtaking betrayal.

    A new thread. What a relief.
    drkate..your blog may have a high risk virus.
    I caught at least 5 serious viruses from wordpress and here.
    You may need to update to a newer version of WP.
    The above is only one of the viruses…

    On another note I suspect LT COL Lakin’s family was threatened..such is the reason for the about face in the court.

I used a virus kill. I have not been able to get on here until now. When the “enemy” attacks so ferociously as they were attacking us and drkate somebody is hitting a very raw nerve. Keep it up drkate. One way to disinfect is to keep plugging away at the nerve and truth. Keep GNAWING. Go for the jugular of this slime.

    The DHS report was the Obama regime’s declaration of war against the American civilian. This travesty was their declaration of war against our military.

    For all those who can’t believe LTC Lakin actually confessed to committing crimes, remember those brave and pathetic souls imprisoned at the Hanoi Hilton also confessed to crimes they didn’t commit. This man was tortured and broken. They crushed him, humiliated him and most likely threatened him and his family. I still have the utmost respect for this hero and patriot. God bless you, sir, I am eternally grateful for your sacrifices. You will always be a hero in my book.

    One day, about ten years ago, I awoke and was compelled to write a poem about these times; times I could never have imagined in my worst nightmare. This poem is for LTC Lakin, CDR Kerchner, Mario Apuzzo, Orly Taitz, Walt Fitzpatrick and all the other patriots who are disheartened by the evil manifest in the White House; an evil that appears untouchable:

    The Destination (A Poem for the Wicked)

    He sees the beauty seen by few,
    that gold and silver thread;
    that winds about the precious jewel,
    that scorners mock instead.

    Their eyes are covered with deceit,
    their hearts as cold as stone;
    their love is dead, their mercy bleak,
    no marrow to their bone.

    They mock, they cry, they threaten forth,
    their hate like bitter wine;
    their poison spills into the street,
    on righteous blood they dine.

    But come what may in days ahead,
    what clouds may darken sky;
    their destination always known,
    a righteous Judge to try.

    In the end, the Judge of judges presides. And in his court there will be no collusion, no undue command influence, no deceit, no treason, and no shadows to scurry and hide in. There is only truth and righteousness and His divine, eternal ruling. The Godless left thinks they are safe in their treachery, but the eye that scans the heart of man sees what they have done and has made note. Foolish are they who stand proud in their treachery. And arrogant are they who don’t understand that one day they too will die and stand before the great Judge. I can only pray to be a witness as THEY grovel and beg for mercy before Him.

    Wonderful poem bd!

    Dr.Kate; I will agree with your assessment of the verdict and sentence. I too wondered about the queer questions by the ‘jury’. When the unabridged Webster’s Dictionary was brought to the deliberation room, I had guessed they were curious about Atty. Pukett’s focus on the difference between the use of the term ‘ by design’ versus his argument and evidence of Terry’s unplanned last minute decision to miss the flight, which gave me a glimmer of hope re: the verdict.

    Too, the plethora of information both from the prosecution (the YouTube video) and the defense on the extenuating circumstances and lack of direction from higher military and congressional authority that LTC Terry Lakin was presented with was communicated to the ‘jury’, but with no apparent sway.

    P.S. It was a pleasure meeting many of you under the difficult conditions, both legal and weather, in which we found ourselves.

    This is completely off topic…

    just to give a glimpse of how powerful a president is and how deeply entrenched this power is and how things change incrementally, as you work to pay the government its fair share:

    and this list is yet to be completed:

    “. . .and another one bites the dust.”

    Has any one seen O’Slyly this evening. Did you you notice how condescendingly he handled the mention of LTC Lakin’s case with the support of the bimbo. The PINHEAD ONCE again revealed his ignorance LOUD AND CLEAR.

    I believe LTC should have never pleaded guilty to any thing. I can only imagine the tremendous pressure that must have been placed upon him to do so. His atttorney “Puke-it” betrayed him as far as I am concerned.

    Well–maybe now we can’t nominate him for president but let us continue to tell his story. Let us not let the Obama pigs get away with shelving this story and forgetting it. It still ain’t over until the fat lady sings!

    Maybe the new battle cry is “Remember LTC Lakin!”

    Supremes facing eligibility challenge to Obama, again
    Taitz’s case distributed for conference among justices on Jan. 7
    Posted: December 18, 2010

    It just doesn’t appear to be going away.

    The idea that Barack Obama’s eligibility to occupy to Oval Office, and do chores such as appointing Supreme Court justices, needs to be explored and documented is headed back to the highest court in the land.

    According to the Supreme Court’s own website, there is scheduled to be a conference Jan. 7, 2011, on a case submitted by Orly Taitz.

    This particular case has had a long proceeding; it began as a challenge to the legality of the military orders under Obama, whose eligibility to hold the office of president never has been documented to date. While that officer, Capt. Connie Rhodes, ultimately followed her orders, the attorney was fined $20,000 in the case, and it continued its path through the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals and now is pending in Washington.

    Whether it will fall by the wayside as have other cases on the same issue that have been submitted to the court remains to be seen. But even if this case falls, it doesn’t appear the issue itself will fade.

    Read the full report on Obama’s eligibility yourself.


    More than a year ago, polls revealed that a bare half of the people in the United States even knew there was an issue over Obama’s eligibility but recent polls have indicated up to 58 percent of Americans now have doubts over that issue.

    Fining attorneys, even jailing defendants, as happened in this week’s high-profile case against Lt. Col. Terry Lakin at Ft. Meade, Md., hasn’t caused the issue to disappear.

    A billboard campaign that simply asks “Where’s the Birth Certificate” has appeared in many dozens of locations, and one billboard company that a year ago concluded it was more or less a settled issue now has asked to be allowed to participate in the campaign.

    Various officials have “verified” Obama’s eligibility but have declined to document their statements.

    Extensive examinations of the available record suggest Obama likely is, in fact, ineligible.

    There remains a multitude of lawsuits still making their way toward Supreme Court review:

    In Congress, a pending proposal would require all candidates for the office of president to document their eligibility under the Constitution’s requirement that they be a “natural born citizen.”

    Similar plans are moving even more quickly at the state legislature level.

    And there even are predictions that Congress will take up the dispute.

    Retired Cmdr. Charles Kerchner, whose legal challenge to Obama’s eligibility recently was turned back by the Supreme Court on a vote that included two members of the bench appointed by Obama and therefore holding an apparent conflict of interest, said the problems will just get bigger the longer the issue remains unresolved.

    Such sorrow. This is all too strange. The change in attorneys…who is this Mr. Puckett who railroaded his own client?

    Cowards at the top of our military! Disgusting…for the love of money is the root of all evil; love for their fellow man and comrade is conspicuously absent, for sure.

    What perilous times! Their judgement will come!

  8. 16 Papoose December 18, 2010 at 8:55 am

    Just a simple question now that the Military has shown us where they stand at this juncture of Terry Lakin’s Court Martial and sentencing as the appeal process/ outcome has yet to be determined:

    In the future, will they bow and scrape to a POTUS if commanded to do so and will they follow the laws enacted by turban/hajib wearing Supreme Court Justices?

    I am not intimating that bogus potus is a traditional Eastern muslim, as it is obvious he is a member/supporter of the Weather Underground and is a disciple of the Nation of Islam.

    I am specifically asking a question as respects the future and a person who has been duly elected by any nefarious means, inaugurated as POTUS who was born to an American teen-aged mother, alluding to being born somewhere in the States, is at least 35 years of age and lived in the USA for 14 consecutive years;


    a person born to one American parent, born on US soil, is 35 and lived in America for 14 years, was elected and certified by the sitting VP, inaugurated on the 20th of January 20xx and is subjected to follow/obey Sharia by the Nature of being born a muslim.

    I ‘presume’ they will as they must follow any order ‘presumed’ to be lawful.

    Should they be commanded by the current duly elected, twice sworn POTUS to scrape and bow effective January 20th 2012, will they do comply?

    Again, I am not saying what’s his name is a muslim as I do not know that. I am asking a theoretical question based on the power of Executive Orders should the sitting potus decide to “convert” as a New Years resolution.

    Ridiculous question; but this is not, on June 6th 2010:

  9. 19 no-nonsense-nancy December 18, 2010 at 9:17 am

    Having sat through the ordeal that LTC Lakin was put through I am even more convinced that we are living under a dictatorship in a banana republic. To harass Pastor Manning the way they did, because he had conducted a trial to uncover evidence of BO’s ineligibility to serve in our Oval Office, was indicative of such a system. Terry Lakin was set up from the very beginning. This entire proceeding was probably established the minute he missed the meetings with Roberts and failed to get on the flight or hopped on his pogo stick (H/T to Papoose) to get to Fort Campbell on time.

    Watching the process of picking the Panel of Members(jury) didn’t sit well with me. Virtually every one of them had heard of the case to some degree. I thought that was not allowed on a jury. Cases in civil courts have even been taken to other areas to avoid that very thing. Those people had been hand picked before to give the verdict they gave. They may even have been threatened. They probably picked officers who were against Terry’s actions in the first place. I’m sure there are officers in the army who agree with his actions but I suspect they made sure no one with that opinion was selected.

    As far as the inconvenience of finding a replacement for Lakin, that is so lame. Many things can, and probably do, cause that to happen occasionally with military deployment. Illness and even death may happen at times to prevent someone from deploying. They obviously found a replacement MD very fast. They even had he AND his wife (also a military person in uniform) on the witness stand. He even stated that he had been informed by the army that he may be deployed again in the near future. It seemed an inconvenience to the couple because she had just returned from a deployment and she hinted that they thought they might want to try to expand their family at that time. So we can continue to have a usurper and tyrant in the White House so she can have a baby? Military couples have to expect disruptions in their domestic lives. After all, this is a totally volunteer military

    Observing this kangaroo court was a very good learning experience for me. They probably did this despicable thing to Terry to set an example so that no other active military person will do what he has done. See what you get if you go against big brother army and challenge the legitimacy of this government? If it is ever done again it will have to be en mass and not by one or two individuals.

    You guys can read what that creep Col. whatever his name is, writes if you wish but I sat next to him or very near him for 3 days and can tell you he is a TOTAL jerk. He argued with anyone who challenged his ideas and he gets very angry, too. He absolutely does not know what natural born even means. And neither does his buddy who was with him the whole time, a person from another country who stated that his eldest son is not natural born but his younger one is, when clearly neither son is. And how was it that after the sentencing we all had to leave the room immediately and we never saw those two leaving? Suspicious to me.

    Thank you, Dr. Kate, for this very good analysis of the “trial”. I’m sure you are exhausted.

    I think the best way we can help Terry is to come up with some strategy to get Obama exposed and out of there as soon as possible.

    • 20 Papoose December 18, 2010 at 10:08 am

      Nancy, short of an acting General confronting the issue, there is nothing We The People can do, I truly believe this.

      The Army has spoken and their Members, our Troops are forbidden to broach the subject. And, further, The 8 Members of the Panel were also warned in public and commanded by the Court Martial judge, Col. Denise Lind, that they will never in their lives be able to discuss the reasons for their decision to any person on the planet ever. They are permitted to discuss their observations as participants, but they have been ordered to never utter a word as to

      Insofar as Terry is concerned, I hope he is pardoned/ exonerated by the Organization that he clearly loves with all his heart and soul. I am sure he will have to make a statement under oath that he will never associate with any person or entity that has anything to do with Constitutionalists. I am ready to stand with him in further support by never bringing his name up again. I know what I know. He witnessed a promise made to him personally, kept despite the hardship and aggravations in attending and witnessing the Court Martial. I feel he knows that some of us who were there are not birthers, but friends. I will always hold him in the highest esteem and carry him in my grateful heart for all my life. I will never venture into his New Day, but will keep him in my prayers with hope that his prayers are answered.

      God Bless the son and brother of the Lakin Family and protect his Wife and Children from further useless worries and anxiety for all their days. Terry Lakin is an honorable and heroic man with a heart of gold and a fervent love for his Country that cannot be measured. Case closed.

        Papoose — beautifully written–thank you and I will also pray to our Lord to prevail against these criminals holding all of us hostage.

        Dr. Kate–thank you for taking time from your daily life to be there for all of us here and for LTC Lakin.

        Just a note–my husband was in VV as an army special forces, and they at that time we made to sign statements that they could NEVER discuss or TELL anything about VV for 20 yrs.
        Well those yrs have come and gone and his memory of that war are still vivid in his mind and he is one that will never forget what they did and were made to do.

        This govt is evil, and far be it from me to annouce this as I came from a military family of 32 yrs and was always so proud of that as was my youngest son who served in the Navy–Now I know what truly dangerous men these people are.
        Greed, power and money is all they are after.

        We now have no constitution left.

      • 22 tfb December 18, 2010 at 2:30 pm

        I blogged to his brother months ago that Lakin’s defense was weak and wrongminded and on the wrong path, so much that I even posited whether or not he was a deliberate fall guy…you just cannot know these days. There was an irrational resistance and avoidance about describing the true ineligibility issue when I saw them interviewed on MSNBC. It did not make sense, not that it would have possibly helped Lakin in the trial phase but he squandered media opp. after media opp. and that left me being suspicious of the whole thing.

    My course is clear. From now on, I will discourage any of my nieces or nephews, or those of friends of mine from entering the military until we get a legitimate Commander in Chief.

  11. 27 tiger 7 December 18, 2010 at 9:47 am

    There are a number of items for which we can be thankful—Dr. Lakin now has “standing”, Orly Taitz has “standing”, Lt. Campbell has entered “ineligibility” into the court record, the extreme left control of the Congress has been broken, there is dischord within the DNC, and a general increased awareness of thinking (about 50%) Americans.

    No, I do not look for any real pro-action by the new Congress, but the previous obamacare, totally illegal conduct of the Pilosi/Read era has been over ruled by the 2 Nov. outcome. At least, now the issue can be raised without certainty that it would be squelched “officialy”.

    Yes, it does appear that the Court Martial was Scripted. That and the completely unjust manner inwhich Judge Lind conducted the trials leaves the door open for effective appeal—when a more receptive Congress is in power.

  12. 38 JW December 18, 2010 at 11:35 am

    A question for Dr. kate:

    I’m new to your blog and I like what you have written. I’ve followed this a closely as I can. As the change in attorney and legal strategy came after the judge disallowed any relevant evidence and testimony around the eligibility issue, didn’t the attorney have the obligation to serve the client’s interests – to get Dr. Col. Dr. Lakin the best deal he could under the circumstances? And to minimize prison time?? It would seem to me the longer T. Lakin is in jail the more he and his family suffers. and my bet/guess is he was very focused on the impact on his family. Lawyers acting like lawyers in a screwy adversarial system.

    I’m not a lawyer. I’m disappointed and distressed by the outcome. the truth about Obama has to come out.

    Also Dr. Kate, I’d like to know a bit about your professional and educational background – I could not find any bio info on you.

    • 39 drkate December 18, 2010 at 3:30 pm

      I am implying here that it was scripted, the ‘client’s best interests’ be damned. As Papoose also noted, the unethical behavior of Neal Puckett in blaming the Lakin’s previous counsel needs scrutiny and is another way we know that no one is on our side.

      Read the ‘about’ section.

        # 18 of Clause I

        and most importantly,

        #100 of Clause IX

        and there other items within these cited clauses that imply and infer the same thing.

        Even the “accused” prefaced his sentiments under duress, nonetheless, concerning Jenkins by saying: He always proposed a disclaimer that he cannot recommend me to break the law when fed lines Dr. Houdini during the unsworn statement phase.
        it took the attorney at least 5 times to get the accused to belittle his former attorney. The Oncologist, Esq. finally had to design as statement — make that 2 — in order to receive a one word affirmative as a response.

        Its on the record. Even up against the wall blindfolded facing the friendly firing squad, the “accused” would not stray from the truth. He wasn’t even under oath.

      • 45 JW December 18, 2010 at 5:38 pm

        Perhaps I’m being naive, but it would seem to me if Col Lakin and his attorney knew there was no hope, they would certainly need to cut a deal – a plea bargain – the attorney has been saying for weeks (?) Lakin would be convicted as the judge excluded evidence. perhaps the ‘script” was written, as you said, but perhaps with Lakin’s state of mind and his family situation taken into consideration. I imagine these long months of difficulty have been a terrible stress on him and his family. I would think any good attorney would put his client’s psychological/emotional readiness into consideration.
        also i read the “about” section – I was asking for more info. You are very articulate and committed, clearly. Just wanted to know more.

  13. 47 Bridgette December 18, 2010 at 12:24 pm

    Thanks to all of the patriots who attended the Kangaroo Court. We are grateful to get inside information of what really happened and your analysis and reactions. Our hearts were deeply saddened at the news of his confinement, dismissal from the army and loss of his pension. I can’t imagine how this will affect his ability to open his own medical office or if being convicted affects his medical license in any way. Do you know? There is also confusion as to whether he could appeal or not.

    While your were attending the Court Martial, you missed the MSM’s coverage. For the year of entire silence, all of a sudden this case was on fire. I watched the articles jump from 3 to 45 after the first day. I pulled up and read most of them to see how they were handling the information and what lies were being told. If for no other reason, for a historical perspective of the cover-up, and collusion within the media. There might be a few sentences that were honest, but then their misguided,or should I say guided, talking points were inserted.

    You might want to read through these articles I posted to see how the eligibility issue was covered by MSM and major newspapers. Maureen Dowd, NY Times, did a hit piece that was despicable. The ACLU lawyer, Col. Sullivan, did his best bashing of the proceedings. The obots were out in full force at all blogs and media blogs, and infested this blog also. It appears they were hired to do so. It would be interesting to see if anyone received a call to action through Obama’s website or emails.

    NBC said in their article that they got information about the trial directly from the army…that was interesting to see that they had an “in.”

    Thanks again to those in attendance. We were praying for LTC Lakin and for your safety as well.

    Who was filming this? I assume you couldn’t have tape recorders etc.

    • 48 Papoose December 18, 2010 at 3:29 pm

      Thank you Bridgette. I recognized Maureen Dowd in the court room and went to Dr Kate as Mo approached her. I spoke to her in great detail along with Kate. That evening her brat boy called me 3 times for further information. I advised it was going to be a hit job as Dowdy pretended to be uninformed of the situation and was “groping” for facts. We are very grateful that she used us as a beard for the libtard media to slam barky. Her headline says it all. The only lies she spouted was about “birthers” per se as we told her emphatically that we did not care in the least about the BC as he apparently and that he could have been born in the Lincoln Bedroom. I even told her it was his the documents that concerned his C.V.. i.e., his scholastic records and the declaration that transformed his name back to BHO II that appears on the folded and unfolded version of his “COLB”.

      She looked me straight in the eye when I mentioned the fact that we do not have anything to substantiate the name change as if she was struck with lightning. Bridgette, I actually saw the light bulb above her head…

      We are very grateful to her for her smash up smear job. It is a great pleasure to have help her undermine bogus potus whilst she used us to do it. Again, Kudos! Maureen. Great Job! Thank you so much for clearly stating our concerns in the New York Times.

      I had the opportunity to also tell her cordially that it was a pleasant surprise to see her in the Court Room on Day One as it is proof that the lamestream media is well aware of the conundrum and has chosen to black it out. She served us well and she put barky on notice. She only lied a tad. The “accused” did not shed a tear during the proceedings. She apparently had no idea that he is painfully shy by nature and is soft spoken regardless of the topic.

      Thanks again…. ——-> WTPOTUS rocks and is a treasure trove of investigative, researched and valid information. We are indebted.

    There is a growing awakening in America and to further that I offer this Piece of the puzzle…

    Lakin is no less important than anyone of our founders. A Patriotic rebel.
    His name will be repeated in the words and writings of this era as one who gave his all for you, you, and me.
    Thank you Lt. Col. Lakin. You will be among the first to be freed.

    Do these two “high courts” – the Supreme Court and the UCMJ – expect the American people to buy into these two recent actions by them on the eligibility matter?? Are these liberal elitists so highly-educated that they really believe all other citizens are fools who will idly sit on their hands and not grasp the sham that has been perpetrated??


    When Chief Justice John Marshall in his 1821 opinion in Cohens v Virginia said:

    “It is most true that this Court will not take jurisdiction if it should not; but it is equally true that it must take jurisdiction if it should. The judiciary cannot, as the legislature may, avoid a measure because it approaches the confines of the Constitution. We cannot pass it by because it is doubtful. With whatever doubts, with whatever difficulties, a case may be attended, we must decide it if it be brought before us. We have no more right to decline the exercise of
    jurisdiction which is given than to usurp that which is not given. The one or the other would be treason to the Constitution. Questions may occur which we would gladly avoid, but we cannot avoid them. All we can do is to exercise our best judgment and conscientiously to perform our duty. In
    doing this on the present occasion, we find this tribunal invested with appellate jurisdiction in all cases arising under the Constitution and laws of the United States. We find no exception to this grant, and we cannot insert one.”

    Both of these Courts have seen fit to “… avoid a measure because it approaches the confines of the Constitution.” – the civilian court by declining to hear the case which it obviously should do (with the 2 Obama justices recused) and the military court making the implicit determination that the man who has never shown himself to be eligible under the Constitution was eligible to do so and therefore issued lawful orders. No other interpretation exists without bending the prism of realism so far that one claims that only the military instigates, generates, and determines their own orders rather that the CIC and without his approval or involvement.


    Thin military court has done doubly “Treazon to the Constitution” which they had sworn to uphold, but aren’t, but they also do the very tihng that Marshall in the above quote also mentions when he said:

    “… this Court will not take jurisdiction if it should not …” wich is EXACTLY what the military court has done with their ruling that can only be valid if they find the CIC to be eligible to hold the office. Sorry, soldats!! That is WAY above you pay grade and you are not allowed to controvert the Constitution no matter how much you enjoy it.

    Funny that, no one except the lunatic, cancerous birthers, a.k.a. retired Veterans were aware of the code of protocol in the presence of a living Medal Of Honor Recipient… guess Col. Lind and others decided to altered the order to suit their current and particular needs whatever they may be as they remained on their butts in the presence of Colonel Gordon Bird Dog Roberts when he came and went to testify against the “accused”. The Panel of Members and MPs guarding the proceedings and babysitting the concerned “observers” never even budged. I guess they were given dispensation of the record as they are educated Officers.

    # How do you know who or what to salute? Lets take a look at some general guidelines:

    * The # 1 rule of thumb is: If it out ranks you, salute it, If you aren’t sure, salute it.
    * You should always salute a Medal of Honor recipient no matter what the rank. They wear, regardless of Military Branch, this ribbon: Medal of Honor (See saluting for picture of the ribbon comprising the set of tributes/c

    Per the Department of Homeland Security (alert: elevated, btw)

    It is on video as the trial was filmed for the benefit of “others” via closed circuit TV…

    No one but the warped Constitutionalists in that room paid public respect to the Medal of Honor Recipient.

    May I read aloud?


    It’s the Constitution!

    Welcome! The photograph in the header is the reflection of a part of the Grand Teton Mountain range in Jackson Lake Reservoir, Wyoming. I chose this photo, one of my own, because it shows what I feel–that it is time for the collective reflection of who we are, as Americans and as a Nation. One can always see the beauty in the rawness and imperfections. We are only limited by our own imagination.

    This blog is about the Constitution of the United States and its Amendments. We offer a historical perspective, an analysis of what aspects of our Constitution have been and continue to be violated, and practical tools through which we the people can restore our Constitutional Republic.

    A major premise of this blog is that the United States is currently in constitutional crisis, primarily based on the following:

    * An Executive who refuses to prove his loyalty to the United States, strongly suspected of having multiple allegiances and ineligible for the office;
    * A Congress that is rushing the United States toward socialism and bankruptcy through it, and the Executive’s, passage of laws which seize the banking, medical, and auto industries using tax-payer funds;
    * A “Federal Reserve” that is neither “federal” nor has a “reserve” that is crushing the American economy;
    * A systematic attack on the fundamental rights of Americans including free speech, freedom of assembly, the right to redress; the right to bear arms; the right to prevent the government from seizing our homes and communities;
    * Foreign policy, rules of engagement, and strategic homeland defense being compromised by the Executive’s words, policies, economic, and defense strategies

    With this in mind, I would also like to focus this blog on how acts of Congress, the President, and the Courts are either consistent with or attempt to change the Constitution, most principally the relationship between the government and the people. To this end, I will research far and wide and invite readers to find and link constitutional resources for all of our benefit.

    As is well known, it is difficult to produce a high-quality, well researched article on the Constitution every day, unless one is blessed with time and the resources to do so. Like all of you, I also have a full-time job. Thus while nearly all of the articles in this blog will invoke serious topics and propose serious discussion, I will also intersperse these ‘think pieces’ with sometimes totally off topic and light-hearted subjects which I hope you will enjoy.

    In a way, by contributing to this blog, we will continue to build the knowledge base, strategies, historical perspective, and tools for the preservation of a Constitutional Republic, so that people today can use them, and generations to come will know the principles that founded, and that will save, this great nation.

    My hopes for this blog are to really be a resource, as follows:

    * A resource on the history and development of the Constitution, with links to the historical documents, analysis, words and works of our Founding Fathers. Importantly, what do these words, actions and strategies mean for us today?
    * A discussion board for application of these tools to the current constitutional crisis;
    * A resource for understanding how each provision of any Congressional bill, or any executive action, supports or violates the constitution
    * A place to network

    So, please join me and others in respectful conversation and exchange of ideas. Any suggestions are welcome.

    This is a labor of love for my Country.


    God Bless America.

    I pledge allegiance. I am blessed to live in these times.

  18. 55 tfb December 18, 2010 at 5:33 pm

    See, a constitutionalist has to be a sheriff first, then they can run a grand jury:
    In theory and according to the common law, before any Sovereign can be arrested for one of these crimes, a complaint must be filed with the elected Sheriff. The Sheriff, by his own authority, assembles (a common law jury) of the accused Sovereign’s immediate neighbors, called a Grand Jury. The neighbors hear the complaint and evidence presented to them by the complainant. They are permitted to ask questions of any witness and can subpoena anyone else who can shed light on the allegations. A majority must then decide if the accused Sovereign is to be tried by a court. All of this is done without [a judge or prosecutor in attendance]! This is a real Grand Jury proceeding, which is far removed from the joke perpetrated by our corporate government and courts today!

    What happened to our Grand Jury rights of old? The Bar Association has successfully stolen that right away from the Sovereign people, little by little, through rewrites of the Judiciary Act, so that now the American public believes that the Grand Jury is an instrument subject to the jurisdiction, right and whim of the prosecuting attorney! The prosecuting attorney controls the entire proceeding and decides what evidence is presented and who testifies. The judge then tells the jury what the law is and the members of the panel are always denied the opportunity to view the written law!

    Just in–

    Lakin was taken immediately to Leavenworth without having a chance to see his wife and children, who were not notified of the sentencing and were not on the base.

    • 57 drkate December 18, 2010 at 11:51 pm

      Updated: my apologies, a rumor… Lakin left Friday evening for Ft Leavenworth.

    • 58 Papoose December 18, 2010 at 6:11 pm


      So they were not on Base at 1400 hours and he was not detained long enough for their farewell.


      CAAFlogme must be thrilled and laughing and jumping for joy.
      They would love it as he is not in Gitmo.

      Where’s PETA?

    • 60 Sterngard Friegen December 18, 2010 at 7:55 pm

      Why wasn’t Mrs. Lakin at the trial? Did her in laws not tell her that because her husband had pleaded guilty two days earlier there was a chance he was going directly to the detention barracks? Did she support him or are they estranged?

      Do you mean by your post that special dispensation should have been given to Dr. Lakin before he was taken away? Some kind of leave similar to the leave he took before missing movement?

      Please explain.

      • 61 drkate December 18, 2010 at 8:07 pm

        No idea about that, sorry.

      • 62 Papoose December 18, 2010 at 8:44 pm

        Eat me. I’m a hoagie.

        Go home and ask Dwight. He’s the expert on everything.

        bad bye.

        PS: do tell your master that I said hello and despite differences in opinions as deep as the grand canyon, I found him to be interesting, sharp as a tack and very smart. I just wish he had a heart, it would be really nice to relate to him as an American. His joyous cruelty borders on sadism. And as for you freak, did you torture your pets when you were a child?

        MoveOn strapper and take your rubber panties with you. We don’t entertain masochists here. mmmmmmkay.

    • 63 heather December 18, 2010 at 8:02 pm

      OMG— my heart aches for him and his family. What a true American Hero—taking such a chance to free Americans of this tyrannt.

      barry is sitting in the oval office with his feet and shoes on the desk of the POTUS laughing his ass off as one of the greatest heros head to prison for doing the right thing. Does he think he is untouchable? The old saying goes, the bigger you are the harder you fall.

      Next? Can we the people even win?

  20. 64 tfb December 18, 2010 at 6:34 pm

    Obama DID change the oath to require obeying HIM and the Constitution, but what if the two are in conflict as in an unconstitutional potus usurper?

    Here is the original military oath:

    “I do solemnly swear…
    that I will support and defend
    the constitution
    of the United States of America…
    against all enemies,
    foreign and domestic.
    That I will bear true faith
    and allegiance to the same.
    That I take this
    obligation freely…
    without any mental reservation
    or purpose of evasion.
    That I will well
    and faithfully discharge…
    the duties of office
    I am about to enter.
    So help me God.”

    New Oath

    I, (NAME), do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; and that I will obey the orders of the President of the United States and the orders of the officers appointed over me, according to regulations and the Uniform Code of Military Justice. So help me God.

    • 65 tfb December 18, 2010 at 8:31 pm

      OK this is the officer’s oath (top) and enlisted’s (bottom)

      so what we have here is that the top oath means that officers are supposed to refuse unconstitutional orders
      which Lakin did
      and got punished for

      and enlisteds are supposed to say “oogabooga yessir whatever” because they’er mindnumbed grunts

      So because even officers cannot refuse unconstitutional orders…and because enlisteds say “grunt grunt”…I have zero doubt they would shoot at civilians

  21. 66 misstickly December 18, 2010 at 7:11 pm

    I am so glad to see you calling them out, Dr. Kate…

  22. 67 heather December 18, 2010 at 7:56 pm

    I was just watching the History channel and that show was about–the US govt ordering special living quarters under the ground in DC. These so called buildings are shaped like a clam and can be converted to condos with everything one needs to exist. The company building these stated that they have been contracted by the US govt the build these for nuke wars.

    Everyone knows that there are bunkers and living quarters under all the surrounding states, so why these new quarters?

    What do they know that we aren’t being told? The general population gets fema camps and these greedy criminals get to continue life underground safe and sound?

    I would add that after Ltc Lakins sentence that our military would never stand with us.

  23. 68 no-nonsense-nancy December 18, 2010 at 8:20 pm

    I am not really surprised that they took him off without seeing his wife and children. They presented themselves as vindictive b******* durig the entire kangaroo proceedings.
    I still am at a loss as to why his wife wasn’t present in the court room throughout the “trial”. It didn’t make any sense to me. I guess they had their reasons for it.

    They must have had a plane ready to fly him to Leavenworth immediately, which tells me it was all rigged.

    • 69 heather December 18, 2010 at 9:30 pm

      NNN–of course we all know that this was a rigged circus–how about a miracle behind those steel and iron bars—are there any true patriots there? Will any of those guards stand with Lakin—-could this just be a farce for us?

  24. 70 no-nonsense-nancy December 18, 2010 at 8:23 pm

    I just hope they are treating him OK. That is something we most likely will not have any knowledge of.

  25. 71 tfb December 18, 2010 at 8:32 pm

    Is there any way to communicate with Lakin?

  26. 72 heather December 18, 2010 at 8:34 pm

    barry = words, just words………..

    • 73 Papoose December 18, 2010 at 9:10 pm

      Orellian Newspeak Words.

      convolution and circuitous because he’s speaking directly to Bill Ayres and Louis Farrakhan. He thinks he’s made in the shade with the libtards-at-large, but he ain’t as they are totally confused at this point.

      He wants their $5. donation, vote and discipleship. He forgot one lousy detail, at Heart, they too, are Americans and love their Country. When push comes to shove he’s going to fall flat on those purple flapping stitched up lips.

      Plus, we heard it all the first time when Deval Patrick was running for Governor of Massachusetts.

      Big ears, funny name, no curriculum vitae, a ventriloquist’s dream. He needs a pair of TelOprompters to tell you the time of day. I swear to Sterngard, its true.

  27. 74 Jan December 18, 2010 at 10:21 pm

    Hi Dr. Kate,
    Thank you so much for attending the trial and the others on this blog that joined you there.
    My heart and prayers were there.
    I’m speechless. Jan. 7th will probably end no better but we can always hope for the best.

    I don’t know why the powers that be think there would be rioting if obat was arrested.

    There would be rejoicing in the streets!!
    People would at first be shocked, then angry that such an evil stunt was pulled on them, and then I think they would start singing.

    I pray there will be enough in the new Congress to stand up for the Constitution. The new Tea Party Caucus will hold Constitution classes, will anyone have the ba**s to question the Supreme Court Judge (I think it is Alito?) during the class about Citizenship? Maybe those are the ones we should start working on.

    Pray without ceasing. God is in charge and He may not come when we want Him, but He is never late.

  28. 75 Papoose December 18, 2010 at 10:46 pm

    Pastor Manning details his detention at Fort Meade

  29. 76 eddie h. December 19, 2010 at 12:02 am

    issa has announced that he will not subpoena obamas birth certificate. once again we cannot depend on the next congress. issa is bailing out with the wrong committee excuse.

  30. 77 kiltie December 19, 2010 at 12:34 am

    I also wonder how Lt Col Lakin was treated when in some sort of detention prior to the trial. I read somewhere he was kept at a military medical facility, was he working there or being “treated” there, given medications?. Remember they wanted him to submit to a mental exam early on, which he rightly indignantly refused stating if he was competent enough to deploy to Afghanistan as a military Doctor, he was competent enough. They had plenty of time pre trial to attempt to break down this man’s morale. I find it hard to comprehend what is happening to my America and my fellow Americans.

  31. 78 Paula December 19, 2010 at 7:13 am

    CALL TO ACTION…Found this over at Give Us Liberty:

    PLEASE CALL: Major General Horst —- 202-685-2808

    I had called Major General Horst early Friday morning to implore him to grant clemency to LTC Lakin. His secretary (I believe her name is “Rose Brown”) answered. She took my phone number, listened to what I had to say, and then mentioned that I was the “third” call she had received that day in response to the Lakin sentencing. I thought that was kind of a weak response for General Horst to have received only three calls given the gravity of the subject matter. I told her that I was surprised that her phone hadn’t been ringing off the hook. She said that she was bracing for just that as the day was still young.
    I thought you might have wanted some feedback on what was coming out of Horst’s office.
    Vince Anselmo
    Riders USA

    CALL MAJOR GENERAL HORST, 202-685-2808 who has the power to change Terry Lakin’s sentence. Terry has already been sent to Ft. Leavenworth to begin serving his 6 month sentence. Let me encourage you to do this. When you make the call you should mention that Lakin had his due process rights to present the defense that orders from Obama were “UNLAWFUL orders” removed from him by the presiding judge before the trial even began and that Lakin had the support of high ranking retired military who said that the Military Code permits officers to question unlawful orders. These included CMDR CHARLES KERCHNER, Major General Paul Vallely, and General Thomas McInerney. These witnesses wanted to testify for Lakin but WERE NOT PERMITTED TO DO SO. Former Presidential candidate Alan Keyes also supported Lakin and was not permitted to testify.

  32. 79 eddie h. December 19, 2010 at 8:10 am

    we all need to be asking issa which committee is the one to investigate obamas eligibility. also we need to remind him that the constitution is the law of the land. a natural born citizen is required to be potus and cic. issa is aware that the gop is colplicit in this fraud and treason and he wants to avoid the problem. we cannot let him and the gop get away with this cowardly act. somehow it must be impressed upon them that we mean business and will not stand for this. i had predicted all along that the republicans would run from the eligibility issue of obama. they do not want to be exposed. we must expose them anyway.

  33. 81 bill December 19, 2010 at 9:15 am

    I must dissent to anyone who wants “clemency” for Lt.Col. Lakin.
    Clemency for WHAT !?!? Lt.Col.Lakin was following the “book” and asking what millions of American citizens have been asking for over two years.Apparently the military brass has gone completely “wormy”
    and I believe they haven’t a clue what damage they have done to the
    military and to their own integrity.Well gentlemen and ladies,you may lie to yourself but lying to GOD and the American people is a non starter.

  34. 82 tiger 7 December 19, 2010 at 10:19 am

    Do you think there’s some irony in the fact that the lunar eclipse and the winter solstice occur simultaneously—the last time that happened was 1554 AD. The Winter Solstice was thought to represent the rebirth of the Sun and better times to come. The lunar eclipse also meant the awakening and emergence from darkness.
    Wow, how appropriate is that timing!!!

    • 83 Quantum Leap December 19, 2010 at 4:15 pm

      Yes tiger. It’s an important event for sure BUT as always a lunar eclispse is volatile so Patriots relax. Don’t get caught up into other people’s “stuff”. Stay calm.
      I do think things will be better. Ron Paul overseeing the financial and wanting transparency of the fed reserve along with Elizabeth Warren in there (but no peep from her at all).
      Did they pass the omnibus bill?,/b>
      They didn’t before they did or something?
      Harry reid needs to be arrested for election theft and treason.

      • 84 heather December 19, 2010 at 11:03 pm

        QL–they all need to be arrested for the destruction of our country. Each one. Include the military brass–as they committed treason–they are traitors to our own country for what they allowed to happen to Lakin. Clean out the entire WH and all top brass. Bring back Lakin.
