Michael Behenna’s Appellate Arguments Finally Scheduled!


DEFENDMICHAEL.COM

Tue, Oct 26, 2010 6:07 am

To the thousands of Michael Behenna supporters,

Michael’s long awaited Appellate Argument has finally been scheduled.  It will take place on December 9, 2010 at 10am before the Army Court of Appeals in Washington DC.  We eagerly await for Michael’s case to be reviewed by this higher court and are anxious to hear what we believe will be a reversal of the injustice that was done to Michael. If you are in the Washington DC area on this day you are welcome to attend.

The appellate court will review:

1)      The failure of the Prosecution to provide critical evidence of the Prosecution’s forensic witness to Michael’s defense counsel;

2)      The Military Prosecutor’s reversible error of making false assertions of fact and interjecting her personal opinion in closing arguments;

3)      The military judge’s improper instruction limiting Michael’s right to self-defense;

4)      The evidence presented of pre-meditated murder was not factually sufficient to support a conviction;

5)      The military judge’s failure to instruct the jury on a lesser included offense of murder.

The Army Court of Appeals can overturn Michael’s conviction on any single one of these errors.  After the hearing on December 9th a ruling should be handed down in early 2011 and our hopes and prayers are that Michael’s conviction will thrown out.

In addition to the appeals process Michael also has his annual clemency hearing coming up, possibly around the same time as the appellate argument hearing.  Michael is not allowed to attend his clemency hearing so we will again represent him and hope the Clemency Board takes further action to reduce his sentence or release him to come home.  We request that everyone send letters of support to the Clemency Board.  You are certainly welcome to draft a short letter advising the Clemency Board of your opinion, or use the sample letter at the bottom of this email, or a combination thereof.  (The sample letter will also be placed on www.defendmichael.com).  We also encourage you to send a copy of your letter to your Senators and Representatives. There is a perfect storm forming to bring Michael home, but now more than ever we need your help.  Please take a minute and write to the Deputy Secretary of the Army and your Congressional Delegations to let them know that this young man must be set free.

We are extremely grateful for those who continue to send letters and cards to Michael.  This upcoming holiday season will be Michael’s second behind bars and he will no doubt struggle with the loneliness that comes with his situation.  You can’t imagine the impact a kind word of support can have upon our son.  Your letters have always lifted his spirits and sustained him as he fights to regain the freedom that was taken away from him.  With the incredible support of thousands of voices just like yours from across this great country hopefully this will be the last holiday Michael has to spend behind prison walls.

Bless you all,

Scott & Vicki Behenna

Remember When a Safety Record Meant Something… Like Saving Lives!

Remember When An Achievement was Touted and Displayed Proudly

Things you learned in primary school:

Stars Charts and Chore Charts Reward Children for Good Behavior, Learning New Skills, Meeting Goals was an ‘atta’ boy or ‘atta’ girl for daily and long-term self-assessments or for when Mom and Dad viewed on Parent/Teacher Night.

*Clearly similar to daily performance on the job with occasional interaction with superiors*

Then I thought I’d look for an example of a report card. However, I found myself at the National Assessment of Educational Progress The Nation’s Report Card Learner Outcomes (I personally prefer the term students or pupils, consider me old-fashioned, and achievements or scores). I am horrified to see even just this “one report card” that literally has no real stats. Who just threw a bunch of numbers out to see if they would stick? (This example must be for Hard-Core Liberals as it is meaningless)
Case of Adults performing badly!

*Report cards are clearly similar to an overall performance evaluation indicative of a raise or promotion to advance within the employer’s facility*

Kids in school know consequences for bending the rules.

Adults do not seem to have a clue what may result for bending the rules:

Safeguard Our Constitution Press Release: Lakin Appeals Army’s Fitness Report

PRESS RELEASE

DECORATED ARMY PHYSICIAN APPEALS ARMY’S DISPARAGING FITNESS REPORT

Court Martial Process Proceeding

Washington, D.C., July 16, 2010. Army Lt. Col. Terrence Lakin, who is being court-martialled for his principled stance in refusing to obey what he feels are illegal orders because they are given by a chain of command headed by a President who may be ineligible under the United States Constitution, has today released his appeal of the Army’s version of a “fitness report” which disparages him unjustly. The “Officer Evaluation Report,” or “OER,” as it was originally drafted praised LTC Lakin as one of the top 10% of all Army medical department officers and recommended him both for promotion to full Colonel and for medical clinic command. A few days later it was redrafted and said he was unfit for continued military service. Only one event had intervened.

On March 30, 2010, the American Patriot Foundation posted on YouTube a video (which has now been viewed more than 200,000 times) of LTC Lakin stating: “I am today compelled to make the distasteful choice to invite my own court martial, in pursuit of the truth about the president’s eligibility under the Constitution to hold office.” LTC Lakin then refused to deploy to Afghanistan as he had been ordered, until the issue of the President’s eligibility has been resolved.

The revised OER failed to note Lakin’s reasons for his position and failed to indicate that all soldiers are trained that they must disobey illegal orders. Lakin has appealed the Army’s pejorative and unfair OER that now recommends he in effect be thrown out of the Army, as the Army could do even if the Court Martial proceeding were dropped. Images of the draft OER, the final OER and the appeal can be found on the website of the American Patriot Foundation, www.safeguardourconstitution.com.

The American Patriot Foundation, a non-profit group incorporated in 2003 to foster appreciation and respect for the U.S. Constitution, has received more than a thousand donations to the legal defense fund it set up for LTC Lakin.

Art. II, sec. 1 of the U. S. Constitution explicitly provides that only “natural born” citizens can serve as president and commander-in-chief. Mr. Obama’s continuing refusal to release his original 1961 birth certificate has brought Lt. Col. Lakin to the point where he feels his orders are unlawful, and thus MUST be disobeyed.

Senator LeMieux Confirms We Have An Inept, Out of Touch, Moronic Administration

Senator LeMieux on BP spill.wmv

Thesharktank1 — June 21, 2010

I wonder if the administration will once again, try to say – a Senator’s conversation with Obama didn’t happen the way it is has been relayed by the sitting Senator? Case in point ~ The “Obamanation” Continues the Lying Discourse Regarding Immigration, Arizona, and John Kyl.

Senator George Lemieux you make me smile :) You are a Hero, Patriot and Statesman!

Senator George Lemieux validates his points in the video with the daily accounting on his website:

SKIMMER WATCH:

25

Twenty is the number of verified oil skimmers off the coast of Florida as of June 21, 2010. As of June 22, the State of Florida has independently hired FIVE additional skimmers due to federal inaction, bringing the new total for oil skimmers off the coast of Florida to 25.

PRESS RELEASE

DECORATED ARMY DOCTOR LTC TERRY LAKIN WAIVES PRELIMINARY HEARING AND ANNOUNCES NEW

YOUTUBE VIDEO

____________________________

CASE TO NOW PROCEED DIRECTLY TO GENERAL COURT MARTIAL

_____________________________________

HEARING WILL NOT PROCEED ON JUNE 11, 2010

Washington, D.C., June 9, 2010.  Saying that the Army has made it “impossible for me to present a defense”
at the Article 32 “preliminary hearing” previously scheduled for June 11, 2010,  Lt. Colonel Terrence Lakin has officially waived -cancelled-that proceeding.  Therefore, the case will move inexorably on to a General Court Martial.  The punishment for the charges filed against LTC Lakin carry a maximum term of four years in the penitentiary.  Lakin expects the trial to be held in the early fall, but this has yet to be determined.  The next step will be the formal referral of the charges by Lakin’s Commanding General, Major General Carla Hawley-Bowland, followed by his arraignment before a Military Judge, both of which are expected before the end of June.

Lakin, through his legal defense team, requested the testimony of Dr. Chiyome Fukino of the Hawaii Dept. of Health, and all of that agency’s records that exist concerning the president’s birth.  Lakin had also requested the testimony of the custodians of records of, and the records relating to Obama’s admission and financial aid that exist, of the Punahou School, Occidental College, Columbia University and Harvard Law School.  All these requests were also summarily denied, leaving Lakin without any ability to mount a defense at the hearing.  However, in that this hearing was preliminary in nature in the first place, Lakin will renew his requests to the Military Judge at the appropriate time.

Lakin also released a new 5-minute video on Youtube explaining why he believes there are reasonable arguments that President Obama is Constitutionally ineligible to serve as Commander-in-Chief. The video can be viewed at http://www.safeguardourconstitution.com/video2.html.

The video is being released under the auspices of the American Patriot Foundation, a non-profit group incorporated in 2003 to foster appreciation and respect for the U.S. Constitution, in the one month since establishing a fund to provide a legal defense to LTC Lakin, has received generous donations from more than 1,200 separate individuals. Further details are available on the Foundation’s website, www.safeguardourconstitution.com.
