JAG HUNTER here with Sergeant of Marines Timothy Joseph Harrington:

Major General Carla G. Hawley Bowland and Colonel Denise R. Lind are behind a ruling in the Lakin attainder Court-martial handed down last Thursday (2 September).

Bowland and Lind–both staff corps officers–report to us that the United States military doesn’t need a civilian president as commander in chief in the exercise of military force.

Boiled down to its essential aspect Hawley-Bowland and  Lind are prepared to act on their own authority to incarcerate Lieutenant Colonel Terrence Lakin, if for no other reason, so as not to embarrass the thug, punk criminal occupying the White House.

This represents a counter-argument to the Hawley-Bowland/Lind writing.

~~~~~~~~~~

Infiltrator Soetoro-Obama’s Treason against the United States Constitution manifests a clear and present danger.

Soetoro-Obama’s armed opposition to the Constitution works at installing a competing, rival and totalitarian regime. Soetoro-Obama’s decapitation of a civilian commander in chief represents a constitutional emergency.

SOBama’s war on the Constitution, his open rebellion against the United States–his Treason threatens our American way of life.

Soetoro-Obama was in residence in the White House only forty-nine days when SOBama issued “palpably” illegal orders deploying 23 U.S. Army military policemen  into the small Alabama town of Samson (click here).

SObama’s Alabama adventure issuing illegal orders actively “pervaded the activities of civilian law enforcement officials” and “subjected [American Citizens] to the exercise of military power that was regulatory, proscriptive and compulsory in nature.”

Under SOBama’s orders Army troops forcibly restricted “the freedom of movement of civilian persons.”

SOBama hourly commits Treasonous acts against the United States enjoying extraordinary success in the destruction of our American way of life.

Last September SOBama the infiltrator assumed the title and duties of the principal officer of a principal “organ” of the United Nations (click here).

In discussions with Marine Sergeant Timothy Joseph Harrington, Tim pointed out that SOBama’s accepting a foreign government position under the United Nations flag perfectly demonstrates an act of TREASON.

A legitimate president of the United States can not during term of office collaterally hold any other government position under the constitution of a foreign sovereign state.

SObama can not be at the same time president of the United Nations Security Council and president as commander in chief of the United States of America.

SOBama’s September 2009 swearing in as president of the U.N. Security Council set an international precedent. SObama proclaimed the United States chief executive and commander in chief can be a citizen of any county. In this act of Treason SObama reduced America (and its armed forces) to state status under the U.N. secretary general and U.N. constitution (its charter).

THE GRAVITY OF OUR SITUATION CANNOT BE MADE MORE CLEAR!

SOBama and his treasonous partners are subjecting Americans and the United States Constitution to death by a thousand cuts.

SOBama and his treasonous partners are all about the wholesale extermination of United States Sovereignty.

There are military governors in SOBams’s wild bunch–COMMAND RACKETEERS–like Army Major-General Carla G. Hawley-Bowland and Colonel Denise Lind who are no more obedient to the United States Constitution than the Traitor-Infiltrator SOBama.

Lieutenant Colonel Lakin’s Defense More Completely Constructed

You must comprehend, as it stands, we citizens of the United States must know SOBama is a Treasonous foreign-born Domestic Enemy.

No one can credibly claim ignorance.

Our silence as an American people–manifested in our impotence to oust SOBama as a treasonous infiltrator–is our agreement before the international community that the United States Constitution is formally abandoned.

In was in the environment of SOBama’s war against the Constitution described above that U.S. Army Doctor Terrence Lakin stood up and spoke out.

Last week Convening Authority Major-General Carla G. Hawley-Bowland and military hearing officer Denise R. Lind acted together in aiding and abetting SOBama in his treasonous war on America.

In ruling upon Colonel Lakin’s defense Lind and Bowland betrayed Doctor Lakin, they betrayed themselves, they betrayed us, they betrayed the Constitution, and they betrayed our Country.

We shall here more completely construct Colonel Lakin’s defense (his defense of America) while exploiting an opportunity to eviscerate the Bowland-Lind’s ruling.

Doctor Lakin challenged SOBama at a point in time when SOBama was a confirmed and self-confessed Traitor.

The magnitude of SoBama’s Treason had become legendary.

Colonel Lakin enjoys the protection of criminal complaints filed by other commissioned officers of the United States armed forces signed under oath  naming SOBama a Traitor.

Military officers holding standing acted against SOBama naming the infiltrator a Traitor before Colonel Lakin acted.

SObama’s silent admission taken together with SOBama’s written confession in Treason protects Colonel Lakin in further naming SOBama an illegitimate commander in chief.

Said differently: SOBama’s near total silence regarding questions going to his legitimate command of the Unites States Armed forces invited, maybe even emboldened Colonel Lakin to act.

It was in any event Colonel Lakin’s duty!

SOBama’s intransigence has certainly emboldened others to do their duty.

It remains a basic military duty, designed in part for the benefit of subordinates, to challenge the authority of superior officers when that authority is in question.

The “superior officer” must be one authorized to give the order; else indeed his command would not be a lawful one. (Winthrop’s Military Law and Precedents, p. 577)

It is of no consequence that Colonel Lakin advances a different theory in charging SOBama criminally than those criminal charges naming SOBama advanced by other commissioned officers.

Timely and uncounted challenges to the constitutional validity of the SOBama’s standing as commander in chief were in place fully a year before Colonel Lakin’s.

Most challenges go unanswered. But one criminal charge of Treason is conceded (unlawful deployment of Army troops into Samson, Alabama – click here).

Many criminal complaints naming SOBama, no matter their status, pre-date Colonel Lakin’s actions.

De facto commander in chief?

Lind’s and Bowland’s assertion that SOBama is a de facto commander in chief is  unsustainable and deadly.

Bowland and Lind report to us that the United States military doesn’t need a civilian president as commander in chief in the exercise of military force!

But for the soldier, sailor or Marine there can be no question, no doubt whatsoever regarding the legitimacy of the commander in chief.

All the duties of his life (the soldier’s) are according to the theory of military obedience, absorbed in that one duty of obeying the command of the officer set over him…” (Winthrop and others p. 571).

Lind and Bowland’s dangerous assertion–trotting out the government position that SOBama may be in fact an illegitimate commander in chief–only works to excite the full fury and focus of military subordinates.

Lind and Bowland dig deeper as they opine it is “impossible” for Lakin’s court-martial assembly to “undertake independent resolution of whether [SOBama]…is qualified under the Constitution” to command American forces.

In fact, resolving SOBama’s Treason stands as Bowland’s and Lind’s first duty.

An “order” is an Executive mandate. (Winthrop, p. 576)

“…All military authority and discipline are derived from one source—the Sovereign, so in our army every superior, in giving a lawful command, acts for and represents the President as the Commander-in-chief and Executive power of the Nation, and the source from which [the senior officers’] appointment and authority proceed. Hence the dignity and significance of a formal military order and hence the gravity of the obligation which it imposes upon the inferior to whom it is addressed.” (Winthrop on page 572)

An illegal order emanating from the president can confer no authority. A command not lawful may be disobeyed, no matter from what source it proceeds. (Winthrop, p.  575)

And with that “there is nothing better settled, as well by the civil and military laws, that neither officers nor soldiers are bound to obey any illegal order of their superior officers, but on the contrary it is their bounden duty to disobey them”…no illegal act can be justified, no matter how high the source from which it emanates, by an order from a superior authority. The soldier is still a citizen, and as such is always amenable to the civil authority. (Winthrop with others, p. 575)

Bowland and Lind admit even they don’t know whether SOBama is legitimate! But they’re going to Court-martial Colonel Lakin anyway.

Huh? How can this be?

Courts-martial are creatures of orders! (Winthrop, pg. 49)

Bowland and Lind don’t know for themselves whether SOBama’s orders are legal in a situation where both officers are duty-bound to KNOW from where their authority flows.

Bowland and Lind treasonously evade their duty by describing the dilemma on the table as a “political” or “policy” question when–in reality–the question regarding the source and nature of orders is supremely military in concept and concern!

No other obligation must be put in competition with obedience to orders; neither parental authority, nor religious scruples, nor personal safety, nor pecuniary advantages from other services. All the duties of his life (the soldier’s) are according to the theory of military obedience, absorbed in that one duty of obeying the command of the officer set over him…” (Winthrop and others p. 571).

Bowland and Lind’s opinion regarding the chain of command is irreconcilable with that of Colonel Winthrop’s.

Colonel Winthrop clearly and repeatedly asserts the authority of military officers to issue orders and the concomitant duty of military service members to obey such lawful orders depends directly upon whether the president as commander in chief is qualified under the Constitution to command.

Lind and Bowland sail a reverse course by claiming officers subordinate to the commander in chief enjoy an  “independent authority” to issue “lawful” orders.

Lind and Bowland manifest their belief in an “independent authority” to issue “lawful” orders by proceeding independently in the Court-martial of Lieutenant Colonel Terrence Lakin based solely upon their own authority

Ruling on Motions – LTC Lakin (click here – save to file – then open from your computer)

Lieutenant Colonel Scott Weil wasn’t acting on his own authority as he led his military policemen into Samson, Alabama back in March 2009.

Lind and Bowland repeatedly claim in their ruling that they themselves are allowed to issue orders on their own authority “whether or not SOBama is a natural born citizen or is qualified under the Constitution” to command U.S. forces.

Bowland and Lind report to us that the United States military doesn’t need a civilian president as commander in chief in the exercise of military force!

As unsettling as their view regarding the American military’s chain of command Lind and Bowland continue to incite even greater fear.

Lind and Bowman tell us we’re not even allowed to explore the question about SOBama’s outlawry in the face of “an unusual need for unquestioning adherence to a political policy decision already made.”

Lind and Bowland explain that the “potential for embarrassment” to the infiltrator SOBama triumphs over very real concerns and questions regarding the outrageously illicit criminal conduct of Barack Obama and SOBama’s criminal assistants.

Recall that in the late 1930’s and into the early 1940’s officers of the German army embraced “an unusual need for unquestioning adherence to a political policy already made.”

Boiled down to its essential aspect Major General Carla G. Hawley Bowland and Colonel Lind are prepared to act on their own authority to incarcerate Lieutenant Colonel Terrence Lakin, if for no other reason, so as not to embarrass the thug, punk criminal occupying the White House

We as an American people must not let Colonel Lakin be led to a military prison.

We, just as much as Doctor Lakin, are duty bound to resolve the question regarding Barack Hussein Obama’s TREASON now before us.

Here endth the lesson!

“Written by William Winthrop (1831 – 1899), Colonel, United States Army, this second edition (1895) is the revision and enlargement of the work. This comprehensive treatise details early military law [and martial law], written and unwritten, and explains the intricacies of the courts martial process. It remains the most important historical reference source for military justice practitioners. It is still frequently cited by military appellate courts. It has been called ‘a masterpiece of painstaking scholarship, brilliant erudition, and lucid prose.”
