A Right to Lawful Command
By JB Williams
Members of the United States Military have sworn an oath to uphold and defend the Constitution and protect the American people from all enemies, both foreign and domestic. Soldiers, Airmen, Sailors and Marines have voluntarily accepted the duty to follow all lawful commands and whether Barack Obama & Co. likes it or not, lawful command begins with a lawful Commander-in-Chief. The US Constitution defines what a lawful Commander-in-Chief is, in Article II – Section I – Clause V.
More than 400 civil and criminal suits have been filed in countless courts across the country raising a myriad of challenges to Barack Obama’s legitimacy for the office of president, or Commander-in-Chief.
So far, every court has declined to hear any evidence against Barack Obama. Name one time in history when you could find not one court willing to ask the most obvious questions on a matter as pressing as who the president of the nation really is?
An Unlawful Commander
Under an unlawful commander, every order is an unlawful order. This means that above all other citizens, members of the military have a unique stake in the matter of who is issuing military orders, and as a result, a very real right to get an answer to that question.
It has been well established that no matter who Barack Obama’s real father might be, or where on earth he might have been born, he is NOT a ”natural born citizen” of the United States and he is therefore, ineligible for the office he currently holds.
Most of what Obama has stated we already know to be a lie. He has refused to release any records to document any part of his life, his birth, his education, his travel, his adoption in Indonesia or his association with a laundry list of anti-American evil-doers. Beyond the fact that most of the public propaganda on the man is not true, we know literally nothing about this person.
Members of the US Military are not obligated to take orders from such an individual. Commanding our troops is an honor and a privilege. The honor is reserved for only one individual at a time, and that individual must meet certain specific requirements or the honor is not theirs.
Members of the military not only have a right to question the lawfulness of their orders, they have a responsibility and an obligation to do so. If they act on unlawful orders, they have lost the protection offered by their uniform.
Another Attainder Courts Martial
Army Flight Surgeon Lt. Col. Terrence Lakin will stand before the military’s probable cause hearing commonly referred to as the “Article 32” hearing on June 11th. On June 3rd, Lt. Col. Lakin received word that his defense team will not be allowed to present or pursue any evidence concerning the lawful standing of his Commander-in-Chief.
As reported by Bob Unruh at WorldNet Daily, an Army Investigator named Daniel J. Driscoll issued an opinion stating the following;
“In my view our constitutional jurisprudence allows Congress alone, and not a military judicial body, to put the president’s credentials on trial,” – “It is my opinion the discovery items pertaining to the president’s credentials are not relevant to the proof of any element of the charges and specifications set forth in the charge sheet,” he continued. “Consequently I will not examine the documents or witnesses pertinent to the president or his credentials to hold office.”
“While Driscoll cited “Rule for Courts-Martial 405” which allows “the production of witnesses ‘whose testimony would be relevant…'” he said questions about Obama’s eligibility – [which could certainly bear on the validity of military orders] – will be ignored.” – WND
Driscoll said those who have custody of Obama’s records – several Hawaii and various school officials – also will not be allowed to testify. Driscoll declined to respond to a WND request to comment on his ruling. – WND
It must be noted that without having delivered an official birth certificate, Driscoll himself could not put on a military uniform and could have no opinion in this matter at all. An allegedly forged COLB, such as that presented by FactCheck and Daily KOS on behalf of Barack Obama, would not be accepted by the US Military as an official “birth certificate.”
Further, the UCMJ (Uniform Code of Military Justice) is a punishment system based upon the antiquities of Roman martial law the British later adopted and sophisticated. Revolutionary war leaders–primarily John Adams–adopted the British Articles of War as a matter of urgent necessity. Both the colonial Revolutionaries and the British fought under the same rules for discipline. America’s Articles of War (since renamed the Uniform Code of Military Justice) have never been reconciled with the United States Constitution. Hence the birth of the attainder court-martial (no juries allowed).
In fact, Winthrop cites in quotation on page 49, Volume I of his treatise on Military Law and Precedents;
The UCMJ – “Not belonging to the judicial branch of the Government, it follows that courts-martial must pertain to the executive department; and they are in fact simply instrumentalities of the executive power, provided by Congress for the President as Commander-in-chief, to aid him in properly commanding the army and navy and enforcing discipline therein, and utilized under his orders or those of his authorized military representatives.”
This means that Lakin’s accused is also his accuser, the head of the Executive Branch, the Commander-in-Chief. It also means that Driscoll’s refusal to allow any evidence concerning Obama is both incorrect and highly suspect.
In a June 3rd press release from Margaret Hemenway, Lakin’s press representative issued the following statement;
“Army refuses Lakin’s request to have president Obama testify and refuses to allow any witness or evidence from Hawaii or elsewhere on eligibility question – hearing to proceed on June 11th.” – “LTC Lakin faces lengthy prison term for refusing to deploy to Afghanistan” – Obama Administration unleashes Army lawyers instead of releasing birth certificate…”
In essence, Lt. Col. Lakin is being denied any real defense. Without being able to present evidence supporting his claims that he has been issued unlawful orders, by an unlawful Command, he has no defense. Yet every member of the military is sworn to follow only “lawful orders.” The penalty for following unlawful orders can be extreme. The issue of “lawful orders” is clearly of utmost importance to every American in uniform.
A Failed Grand Jury Effort
At the same time, across the country in Monroe County Tennessee, another decorated career officer awaits his fate, in the hands of a corrupt Grand Jury which has also declined to accept evidence against Barack Obama for more than a year now.
LCDR Walter Fitzpatrick III began his search for truth and justice more than a year ago, when he attempted to enter evidence against Barack Obama’s legitimacy to hold office, into his local Grand Jury in Monroe County Tennessee.
Fitzpatrick was repeatedly blocked from entering that evidence into court by way of the citizens Grand Jury, which Tennessee code allegedly allows to be entered by any citizen presenting evidence or wrong doing by any elected or appointed official. The Grand Jury is supposed to be the checkpoint between the people and their government, wherein any citizen can present evidence against corrupt government officials.
After months of blocks from local law enforcement officers and court officials, Fitzpatrick filed a criminal complaint against local officials for obstruction of justice and was shortly thereafter arrested on April 1, 2010 – while trying to affect a citizen’s arrest upon members of the local system. Tennessee has some of the strongest citizen arrest laws in the country. But when it comes to Obama, no law seems to be in effect, anywhere in the country.
Fitzpatrick was incarcerated for days without food or water, while denied visitors, and stands charged with “committing actual RIOT”” – based upon the four supporters present to video document events on April 1, “resisting arrest” for actually resisting police officers unlawful physical assault, while being frog marched off public property by the local Sheriff’s Department, “interrupting a meeting” by trying to affect a citizen’s arrest upon people in that meeting and “disorderly conduct” by trying to expose corruption and obstruction of justice in his local community.
On May 26, 2010, Fitzpatrick filed a challenge asserting that the Grand Jury he had already named in a criminal complaint was not eligible to hear his case, for obvious reasons. His accusers stand accused.
10th District Senior Public Defender Richard Hughes notified Fitzpatrick by phone at 3:10PM on June 2nd that a “new” Grand Jury had been formed for the purpose of hearing Fitzpatrick’s testimony on the morning of June 3rd.
That turned out to be a false statement, as when Fitzpatrick arrived for his hearing, the same Grand Jury members had been assembled to hear testimony, absent Jury Foreman Gary Pettway, replaced by Foreman Angela Davis. Fitzpatrick was to testify before a jury he had already challenged and the outcome was no surprise.
Further, one witness to the events of April 1 showed up to testify and separately, his father showed up on Fitzpatrick’s behalf. Monroe County Sheriffs’ Deputies questioned both individuals and turned them out of the Courthouse. The son – denied his right to offer first hand testimony supportive of Fitzpatrick.
Today, Fitzpatrick filed new criminal charges in Monroe County Tennessee, not that there is any evidence of justice in the justice system in Monroe Country Tennessee, which might in part explain why Tennessee was recently ranked #1 – as the most corrupt state in the country.
Hundreds of challenges to Obama’s eligibility have been filed in both civil and criminal courts and ALL of them have been dismissed on “lack of standing” before any evidence could be presented. In short, civil and criminal courts have repeatedly stated the following two points;
- Obama’s eligibility is not our responsibility
- No American has “proper standing” to question Obama’s constitutional standing
Now Military Courts are telling soldiers the same thing. It is not their responsibility and no member of the military has the right to ask any questions about their highly secretive Commander-in-Chief.
The Monroe County Grand Jury, allegedly established as the entry point for citizens to present evidence of wrong doing against officials, is essentially telling Fitzpatrick the same thing. It’s not their department and it’s none of his business.
Justice is officially beyond the reach of average citizens and even decorated military officers.
Not a “Natural Born Citizen”
In a series of columns, I delve into the meaning of the words “natural born citizen” – a special requirement for the offices of president and vice president. I also accept Obama’s own statements as fact, for the purpose of argument, even though I believe Obama to be a career liar.
In this series, we find that there is NO WAY for Barack Hussein Obama Jr. to qualify as a “natural born citizen” of the United States, and therefore, he is an unlawful occupant of the White House.
Here’s that series –
The Bottom Line
Based upon all available research and evidence, I am very confident in stating that Barack Hussein Obama is ineligible for the office of Commander-in-Chief. This means that every order given under his command is an “unlawful order.” Every bill signed by Obama or executive order issued by Obama is also unlawful and unconstitutional. It also means that every individual questioning Obama’s authority has a reasonable purpose for doing so.
But it should be clear to every American at this point – that no court in this land is going to uphold and defend the rule of law or the US Constitution when it pertains to Barack Hussein Obama. Members of the military are going to be jailed for questioning the lawfulness of their orders. Any citizen who dares to question Obama’s authority will be treated as a “crackpot” at best, a “potential domestic terrorist” at worst.
The entire justice system has been eliminated as a peaceful option for redress concerning Barack Hussein Obama. No court in this land will allow any American citizen, civilian or soldier, to question the legitimacy and authority of this particular president.
Our justice system has failed. It has failed at the highest level, to uphold the US Constitution and protect the people from all enemies, foreign or domestic.
Far more troubling than the truth about Obama himself, is the truth about our broken legal system. Without a right to peaceful redress in the courts, what remedies remain?
