Let the distension begin

Source: The Huffington Post
Maj. Stefan Frederick Cook (U.S. Army) refuses to allow himself to be deployed to Afghanistan!

“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. ”

Maj. Cook also sites that: “[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.”

Whether or not you believe that the Major is right or not, and a lot of people are calling for him to be sent for a court-martial, his purposed case does have some merit.

Suppose for a minute, just for a second, that Obama, was really born in Kenya, and neither one of his parents were natural born to the united states, (I know, I know. He was born in Hawai’i, or wait, he was born in Kenya to a woman who was a citizen…never mind the logistics.) that would make him anything BUT the president of the United States.

Let’s look at the Oath of Enlistment:

“I, _____, do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; and that I will obey the orders of the President of the United States and the orders of the officers appointed over me, according to regulations and the Uniform Code of Military Justice. So help me God.” (Title 10, US Code; Act of 5 May 1960 replacing the wording first adopted in 1789, with amendment effective 5 October 1962).

“TO DEFEND THE CONSTITUTION”

IF the orders given to ANY member, of our armed forces are unconstitutional, from ANY officer or the President, it’s the right…no, the DUTY of the members of our military to tell that person to go fuck themselves, and I would hope to God that they would find the balls they need, like Maj. Cook is doing, to do so.

Of course, when you continually try to circumvent the Constitution, you make the Constitution irrelevant. It’s nice to know that our military still have standards that they strive to live up to!

But what if Maj. Cook is wrong? Should we string him up by his testicles? Demote him? Dishonourable Discharge? Maybe we can stone him like they do in Afghanistan? I believe in quite the contrary. We should give that man a medal for doing what’s in this country’s best interest! He is upholding his Oath, two of them in fact, to “support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign or domestic”
