Lt. Col. Lakin, I salute you!

Terrence Lakin, Greg Lakin

Freedom Outpost


Lt. Col. Terry Lakin is the author of Officer’s Oath: Why my Vow to Defend the Constitution Demanded that I Sacrifice my Career, a tell all first hand account of his faith and patriotism which ended up resulting in a court-martial, imprisonment and the stripping of all military rank and privileges, including his Army pension all because he challenged Barack Obama’s eligibility. In reading this one has to ask the question, why would Barack Obama allow a fine military man like this to go to jail, when he could have simply provided the documentation and that soldier would have done his duty.

Lakin refused to obey deployment orders, arguing that Obama had not documented his eligibility for the presidency under Article 2, Section 1 of the U.S. Constitution.

“What I do not understand and still don’t,” he writes, “is why Obama did not just come forward with his key documents and be done with it. Instead, he ordered all of his important records to be kept under seal.”

He also pointed out that the documents released by the White House were digital scans and not official documents that would be acceptable as evidence in a court proceeding.

“So tell me: Who has something to hide?” Lakin asks. “It would seem to be President Obama, and sooner or later the voters of this country are going to make it clear that his stonewalling cannot continue.”

WND reports,

Lakin has explained that he was compelled by his officer’s oath to uphold and defend the Constitution when he was ordered to deploy to Afghanistan. Along with questions about the authenticity of the Obama birth documents, some constitutional scholars argue Obama is not a natural born citizen because his father was not an American citizen.

Ironically, Lakin’s deployment orders required him to bring five copies of his birth certificate.

“I had read the orders several times and had glossed over a detail that had previously seemed routine, but this time I felt like Wile E. Coyote getting smacked by an anvil,” he writes. “I needed a birth certificate to deploy, but the president did not need one to order my deployment. This was nuts.”

Lakin’s day of decision was April 12, 2010.

Though he was ready to be deployed, even taking a photo of himself at the Pentagon with his bags, should Obama validate his eligibility, Lakin could not bring himself to follow the orders without validation.

Thus he was court-martialed. He writes of the event of being there in the court-martial as he stared at the portraits of men who have gone before him:

As fate would have it, these were portraits of various Founding Fathers, and I wondered what they would be thinking. I strongly suspected they would be seeking the truth, about Obama’s citizenship status, about his Connecticut Social Security number (there is no reason why Obama would have a Connecticut number), about the multitude of unanswered questions surrounding this man. Here, however, to emphasize the real issues would likely have resulted in a reprimand from the judge and a harsher sentence from the jury. How, I wondered, had our country descended to this level of apathy?

Some will laugh and mock him for trying to take a stand and say he should have just followed orders. Yet many of those same people would berate soldiers of Nazi Germany for obeying orders. One must do what is right without and not violate their conscience. Martin Luther is one that comes to mind in this regard as he stood at the Diet of Worms upon his belief that faith alone in Jesus Christ alone is what justified sinners before God and declared:

“I cannot and will not recant anything, for to go against conscience is neither right nor safe. Here I stand, I can do no other, so help me God. Amen.”

Jack Cashill writes of his arrival at Ft. Leavenworth’s Joint Regional Correctional Facility:

Now, Lakin was on his way to Fort Leavenworth’s Joint Regional Correctional Facility. Of all his hardship deployments, Bosnia included, this would be the hardest. After he bid a tearful farewell to his wife and three young children, his military minders chained his hands together and attached those chains to a band around his waist. They chained his legs and attached those, too. They then loaded him into a van and drove him to Reagan National.

There, Lakin endured his ultimate humiliation: a seemingly endless perp walk — a shuffle really — through a concourse filled with flags and patriotic bunting and the happy sight of returning soldiers. None of the display had lost its appeal, but Lakin could not overlook the irony of his being chained and bound amidst it all.

The civilian psychologist who did intake assessments at Fort Leavenworth claimed to know why the soft-spoken doctor refused deployment, or at least he thought he did. As he put it, Lakin did not believe Obama to have been born in the United States or to be constitutionally eligible to be president.

Lakin corrected him. As he explained, he did not know where the president was born or whether the president was eligible. The problem was that no one did. As Lakin saw it, the oath that he took as an officer in the U.S. Army — “I, Terrence Lee Lakin, do solemnly swear that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic” — all but dictated that he seek the truth.

Lakin, ironically was bound and incarcerated all for seeking the truth remembering his oath, “I, Terrence Lee Lakin, do solemnly swear that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic.”

May there be others in position of leadership that will count the cost and stand up as Lt. Col. Terry Lakin did.

Lt. Col. Lakin, I salute you!

Tarboro anglers fare well in King Mackerel tournament

Congrats are in order for Tarboro’s Patrick Overstreet, Ray Whitehurst, and Beth Skipper for a strong 2nd place showing in the recent Raleigh Saltwater Sportfishing Club’s 28th King Mackerel Tournament in Morehead City. Howard Patton of Littleton, NC rounded out the winning crew of four.

The team and boat name is “Service Call,” which is very appropriate because Patrick works for the family owned business, Overstreet Heating and Air Conditioning. Service Call is a sleek 32-foot Yellowfin, with twin 350 Yamaha 4-stroke engines.

Sixty-eight boats competed for over $100,000 in cash and prizes. Service Call caught 3 fish, and the largest qualifying fish measured 49-inches, and weighed-in at 42.54-pounds for Second Place Open Division prize money of $5,389. First Place fish was 43-pounds even, so Service Call was less than a half-pound off from the tournament winner. Beth Skipper added to Service Call’s winnings with her $300 First Place Lady Angler Prize.

The wind was blowing 15-20 knots out of the southwest with 4-6 foot seas.

In light of several recent high-profile mass shootings, should America's gun laws be changed?

Vote half way down on right side.

“Enemies Foreign and Domestic” are no longer prophesies.

The Law By Frederic Bastiat

"Ah, you miserable creatures! You who think that you are so great! You who judge humanity to be so small! You who wish to reform everything! Why don’t you reform yourselves? That task would be sufficient enough.”

“See if the law takes from some persons what belongs to them, and gives it to other persons to whom it does not belong. See if the law benefits one citizen at the expense of another by doing what the citizen himself cannot do without committing a crime.”

What Is Law?

"What, then, is law? It is the collective organization of the individual right to lawful defense.

Each of us has a natural right — from God — to defend his person, his liberty, and his property.

Comment on Bracken’s Deleted Comment From The Washington Times/SWJ Editorial @ WRSA.

It is no surprise, Mr, Bracken’s comments have been deleted. After all his novels “Enemies Foreign and Domestic” are no longer prophesies.
That in itself say’s everything.

“In a time of universal deceit, telling the truth is a revolutionary act.”-Sarah Palin

Remember, Hitler said it best:

“It is convenient to have a system of laws where everyone is a criminal.”

And as the greatest, so far, mass murderer in all of history, a megalomaniac who’s face adorned a Christmas ornament on the obama’s white house Christmas tree in 2008, put is so succinctly:

“Every Communist must grasp the truth, “Political power grows out of the barrel of a gun.” “Our principle is that the Party commands the gun, and the gun must never be allowed to command the Party.”
– Mao Tse-tung
November 6, 1938

Is there any doubt what this comment implies? In Obama’s speech in Colorado back in 2008 he said this:

“We cannot continue to rely on our military in order to achieve the national security objectives that we’ve set. We’ve got to have a civilian national security force that’s just as powerful, just as strong, just as well-funded.”

Lets not beat around the fucking bush here. For the “elites”,(who are anything but), this All comes down ultimately to guns. Everything these ruling class scumbags do revolves ultimately about guns. Why? Because simply, it is guns that give these pieces of human garbage their power. It is guns, in the hands of those that they fear will rise up against them, that they fear is a threat like nothing else. And they are correct. It is guns that if they are to take over our country, must control in order to rule with an iron fist. It is guns that they must take from the populous in order obtain that absolute power. It is guns they understand like none other are the real power behind anything. Especially Liberty! Guns are, in the greatest profound concept imaginable, the teeth of Liberty, the great equalizer.

See, their plans have not gone too well American’s have resisted their soothing lies at every turn, these psychopaths are getting worried, they are almost out of time, they have had to resort to revealing their true evil intent. You see it every day, in the desperate finger pointing, the false flag events, the desperate ploys of the state media complex to taint everything with a slant to fooling just enough people. So for all the bullshit rhetoric about old fashioned outdated concepts of the founding of this here Republic of rule of law by long dead white guys who clung to their traditions, their bibles, their guns, the elites know the existential threat to their power, their very lives is embodied in the right to keep and bear those exact same guns.

In no uncertain terms, it is, guns, force of arms our system of government now lives by. In a civil society, in a society based on the virtue and principles of reason, the government has no use for arms against us of the citizenry. A citizenry that for almost 2 centuries regulates itself through natural order of natural law, liberty, and the creation of prosperity. Funny double standard here, tyranny, the imposition of it, requires guns, lots of guns, mmmmn? Tyranny, as you and I and those imposing know full well, grates on ones life prosperity and liberty like an abscessed tooth.

Ultimately, it is these very same guns they desire to take from the rest of us, that are behind that tyrannical power. Where the threat of escalation in establishment and continuation of that power gained through violation of the rule of law, are guns that they use to enforce everything if you refuse to submit.

So it is guns in the hands of We The People that they fear most. Something that which our founders understood from 1st hand experience. It was, it is, guns that are the ultimate bulwark against tyranny, and the only teeth contained in our natural order of the rule of law of our civil society of our Constitution. The legal, lawful power to abolish government, government not of our choosing or making, the one created by these same “elites”, who strive never ending through decades and decades to take those guns from us all, a government that has now become destructive of the very ends it was designed to support.

Any thing else is a cheap side show.

"It can't be killed"

Matt Bracken

Thanks everybody who commented here. I actually thought about posting it on the original SWJ comment thread, but decided not to do so. It can’t be killed. Like my essay “Gangster Government and Sakharov’s Immunity,” and my novels: they can’t be called back or erased. They exist. No matter what happens to us as individuals, the history will show that some did resist, and would not be cowed into silence and submission to the PC totalitarians currently gaining power in what is coming to look like the USSA. They can only take total power if nobody will stand and point the accusing finger. When we can’t do so, we’ll know that the contract has been broken, and it’s time to insist on a new contract, if they will not obey the current two century old version. Until then, it’s all enemies, foreign AND DOMESTIC. Those founding fathers sure had some long range vision, didn’t they?
