The Court Martial proceedings , held in the Magistrate’s Court at the Army’s Ft. Meade, were accompanied by significant military and local police presence inside and outside the Courtroom. It was patently designed to intimidate Lakin’s family and supporters and was perfectly in line with the military and Homeland Security masters’ intent to demonize patriotic Americans, particularly on the issue of Obama’s eligibility. This military presence was complete with tasers, batons, hand guns, handcuffs, and emergency vehicles, as well as the usual round of rumors that ‘violence’ was expected from the public.
Yet the only violence exhibited was by an Obot Colonel against an Article II Constitutionalist, aka, ‘birther’, Commander Charles Kerchner (Ret.). This is a first hand account, supplemented by CDR Charles Kerchner’s recount of the interaction.
Courtroom Break Showdown
Col. Sullivan, of the blog CAAFlog and a Marine Reserve officer, sat in the courtroom with his citizenship manual and dishonestly argued that the 14th amendment allowed Obama to be a ‘natural born citizen’. I am sure many of you have seen his derogatory posts ridiculing Lakin, the Article II Constitutionalists, and the entire question of Hussein’s ineligibility. It was quite something to sit next to him as he and his partner Phil Cave
guffawed at the entire proceedings, especially when it came to attacking Lakin.
As he pointlessly argued his case for a 14th amendment citizen being a natural born citizen, Commander (Ret.) Charles Kerchner leaned over and suggested he was being intellectually dishonest. Suddenly, Sullivan lost his cool, climbed over me and others sitting next to him, yelling at Kerchner, “SIR. SIR.” His aggressive behavior would have trampled anyone in his way.
Sullivan confronted Kerchner toe to toe, and face to face, pointing and yelling about the accusation of his ‘honesty’ and ‘intellect’ being questioned. Fingers flying, red faces, and the Commander did not back down. Instead, in a delicious exchange where Kerchner cited fact after fact–of course based on his extensive research–to the red faced obot Sullivan…
Several military members in the court room moved over to the confrontation, eying the aggressive Sullivan.
…and when the question was asked by Kerchner in a forceful Naval Commanders voice two times in a row, “Do you or do you not believe he [Obama] is a natural born citizen?”, literally, Sullivan’s knees collapsed, his shoulders slumped, and he turned, rushed away without answering the question and ran back to his seat. He was visibly shaking, his pen uncontrollable, and was muttering something about ‘being so embarrassed’…
To which I and my compatriot, sitting next to him, thoroughly agreed that ‘this kind of intellectual dishonesty is endangering the Nation’, tsk tsk. 😛
Perhaps he learned his lesson to NEVER go up against a Navy Commander with the experience of Charles Kerchner!!!
Col Sullivan proved only one thing: he can’t handle the truth.
