Army Major refusing deployment over Obama’s ineligibility to serve as Commander

Claims Obama is foreign born and not a legal Citizen of the United States

Co-posted by Eric Dondero at the Libertarian Republican:

Breaking news item… Major Stefan Frederick Cook, US Army, is scheduled to deploy to Afghanistan. But he is refusing, citing Barack Hussein Obama’s ineligibility to serve as Commander in Chief. Cook believes that Obama is foreign born, and thus excluded from serving in the office of the Presidency.

From the Ft. Benning, Georgia Ledger-Bulletin, July 14:

Cook’s lawyer, Orly Taitz, who has also challenged the legitimacy of Obama’s presidency in other courts, filed a request last week in federal court seeking a temporary restraining order and status as a conscientious objector for her client.

In the 20-page document — filed July 8 with the U.S. District Court for the Middle District of Georgia — the California-based Taitz asks the court to consider granting his client’s request based upon Cook’s belief that Obama is not a natural-born citizen of the United States and is therefore ineligible to serve as commander-in-chief of the U.S. Armed Forces.

Cook further states he “would be acting in violation of international law by engaging in military actions outside the United States under this President’s command. … simultaneously subjecting himself to possible prosecution as a war criminal by the faithful execution of these duties.”

The Libertarian Republican Reports on New Efforts By Congress to Get To The Bottom Of Obama’s Eligibility

From the Libertarian Republican:

Blackburn, Campbell & Culberson now co-sponsors

by Eric Dondero

While it may be too late to revoke Barack Hussein Obama’s hold on the Presidency, it is not too late to make the issue of his birth outside of the United States, most likely in Kenya, an issue for Campaign 2012.

With that in mind, a coalition of conservatives and libertarians around the Nation are pushing for the enactment of HR 1503, introduced by freshman Republican Congressman of Florida Bill Posey. The legislation would require proof of birth in the United States of America or its Territories to run for the office of the Presidency. This shall take the form of a valid hospital-issued birth certificate, and not just a receipt for such a certificate as Obama has released.

The legislation got off to a slow start. It was introduced back in March of this year. And only Rep. Bill Goodlatte (R) of Virginia, agreed to sign on as a co-sponsor. Then a few weeks ago, Randy Neugebauer, R-Texas, came on board. Within the last two weeks, 5 Republican Congressmen have signed on. Besides the 3 mentioned, co-sponsors include: Reps. Marsha Blackburn (TN), John Carter (TX), John Culberson (TX), Ted Poe (TX), and Dan Burton (IN). Notably, Burton and Blackburn are considered leaders of the GOP House Caucus.

Of note, on the Senate side, the Hon. Tom Coburn of Oklahoma has gone on record in support of such legislation in that body.

There are some notable Representatives who have yet to sign on, including some libertarian Republicans. It would also be nice to have a principled and honest Democrat or two as co-sponsors.

Please take a moment to contact your Representatives by email, phone or letter to urge them to support HR 1503. Just tell them it’s the “Posey Bill” requiring a birth certificate for Presidential eligibility.

It may be too late to do anything about Obama’s 2008 election, but not too late to make this an issue for 2012.

Contact your Congressman website.
