From Worldnet Daily:

The U.S. Army is – unofficially – suggesting a brain scan and medical evaluation for an officer who announced he would refuse to follow further orders until and unless President Obama documents his constitutional eligibility to be commander in chief.

Lt. Col. Terry Lakin is the highest-ranking and first active-duty officer to refuse to obey orders based on President Obama’s eligibility.

A spokeswoman for the developing case of Lt. Col. Terry Lakin, a flight surgeon with 18 years in the service, said the recommendation came to Lakin today from an officer whose name was not being used who implied that those higher up the chain of command thought it was a good idea.

Continues..

The top-ranking, highly decorated officer says he’s refusing all orders until Obama releases his long-form, hospital-generated birth certificate to prove his eligibility to serve as commander in chief.

“I feel I have no choice but the distasteful one of inviting my own court martial,” Lakin said in a statement. “The Constitution matters. The truth matters.”

This is rich. We’ve finally gotten to the point where if you disagree with Obamessiah, you must be mentally ill. This is so like socialism. How many people were condemned to mental institutions in communist countries for going against the government? And those were the ones that got off easy and didn’t end up as fertilizer for the jungle or the pigs. This is the first step in moving towards re-education camps or facilities, if that is more palatable. What bothers me more is that there is anyone in the military that wouldn’t at least secretly give credence to what he Lakin says and it hurts that one of his own would suggest such a thing. Such is the purview for politically motivated officers that are no better than politicians. God help us or we’ll be dosing Soma in no time.

Thank you for reading this blog.
