Patriots Are You Ready to Roll with THE American Drive In?

THE American Drive In (website link) is getting ready to roll into Washington, DC on January 5th, 2011. THE American Drive In (facebook link) has over 2500 faceBook fans, and is increasing daily, as it endeavors to create another monumental Conservative Patriot well attended event with purpose. A press release is due out this Friday, December the 17, 2010 but many details can be found directly on the website and in this facebook invitation:

Time
Wednesday, January 5, 2011 · 6:00am – 9:00am

Location Constitution Ave, Washington, DC

What is the purpose of THE American Drive-In?

1. Produce a rolling slowdown protest in DC on the day(s) marking the beginning of the next session of Congress. The level of traffic DC already deals with will, combined with our efforts, likely bring traffic to a standstill. The 112th congress is scheduled to begin on Weds, Jan 5, 2011. The precise response we receive pre-event will help us to determine whether the effort should …be one day or as many as three. 10,000 would have great effect; 50,000 might bring the city to a standstill.

2. We do not ask that anybody violate any traffic law or any other law for that matter as part of this effort. We also do not ask for permission to peacefully assemble and petition for a redress of grievances.

3. Anytime compromise is on the horizon, we will be prepared to repeat this effort.

Why is there a need for American Drive-In?

We insist that House Republicans force the total repeal of ObamaCare. We do not accept any excuses about what the President or Harry “Man Up” Reid will or will not allow. The House has the power and the right to stop all other legislation until this has been accomplished. Hypocrisy can afford to be magnificent in its promises, for never intending to go beyond promise, it costs nothing. We expect them to exercise that power even if it means a government shutdown of whatever duration.

We specifically exempt defense and border control spending, Social Security and a permanent extension of ALL of the Bush Tax Cuts from this requirement provided they are passed in “clean” bills that reduce or maintain current funding levels and add no new taxes or regulations.

When will this event be held?

Wednesday, Jan 5 2011
Constitution Ave, Washington, DC

THE American Drive In was started by conservatives who remember what happened during the last Republican Revolution in 1994. Not much happened.

What little did happen was erased within a few years and the Republicans continued to spend like drunken sailors until the Democrats tossed them out in 2006 and 2008.

How sad for America that Republican excess only came to a halt by electing the party of excess, Democrats.

If the last 50 years have taught us anything, it is that politicians are like irresponsible children that must be managed by responsible parents.

THE American Drive In is how we take the keys back.

Glenn Beck’s Upcoming Trek to Wilmington Ohio

Positive Attitude, Faith, and Each Other:  Wilmington’s Biggest Assets as Glenn Beck Set to Visit

Blogger:  Come and visit our home; you may not want to leave.

Wilmington, OH, December 13, 2010.  On December 15, radio and TV host Glenn Beck plans to visit small town America—Wilmington, Ohio, population fewer than 13,000.  The town is known to many as “ground zero” because thousands lost their jobs in early 2009 when its largest employer, a shipping company, closed up shop.  It was a brutal blow.  USA Today, CBS’s 60 Minutes, and even the president of the United States have visited and reported on the hard economic situation; and yet they chose to ignore the forward-looking, affirmative steps Wilmingtonians are taking to revive their community.

Despite the high unemployment numbers that still exist, Wilmington and Clinton County residents want people to know their focus isn’t on the negative—it’s on the positive, their faith, and each other.

For example, Julieann Martin, who’s lived in Wilmington with her husband for eight years, knows of an 84-year-old man who “grew four times as many tomatoes as he needed.  When they were ripe, he gathered them in his basket and handed them out to his neighbors.”  She said, “Another neighbor saw this and grew cucumbers to hand out.  Another did the same with peppers.  People had fresh food and the community was able to help feed each other.”

There are other ways Clinton County is self-renewing.  Locals are maintaining houses that are up for sale by mowing the lawns, picking up trash, and otherwise keeping the houses looking presentable to potential buyers.  Locals are also stepping up to take care of and keep an eye on empty buildings.  “We don’t have depressed-looking areas,” said Julieann.  “The general thought is that if we work hard together as a community, the reward is achieved by all.  The common goal is saving the community, which we are all a part of.”

Area nonprofit organizations are ever hopeful they will meet their goals to help low-income, at-risk members of the community because residents are volunteering and contributing in so many ways.  Folks are still giving, no matter how small the gift and despite their own hardships.

Wilmington residents are grateful for the recent publicity and are hoping visitors will acknowledge the nonprofits that still need help:

John Boehner Press Release – VIDEO: From Party Mantra To National Rallying Cry, “Where Are The Jobs?”

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE CONTACT: Michael Steel, Kevin Smith

VIDEO: From Party Mantra To National Rallying Cry, “Where Are The Jobs?”
GOP Leader’s New Web Video Kicks Off Weeklong Effort To Highlight Dems’ Job-Killing Policies, Press For Immediate Enactment Of Pledge To America
WASHINGTON, D.C. — House Republican Leader John Boehner (R-OH) today released a new web video that highlights the evolution of “where are the jobs?” from party mantra to “the single most important question” Americans are concerned about. 

http://gopleader.gov/UploadedFiles/watjvideo.jpg

It has now been 20 months since President Obama signed the ‘stimulus’ into law amid promises it would create jobs ‘immediately’ and keep unemployment below eight percent.  Since then, millions more Americans have lost their jobs and unemployment has topped 9.5 percent for 14 months in a row, the longest such stretch since the Great Depression.   This video shows how Republicans have successfully made ‘where are the jobs?’ part of the national lexicon and turned it into a potent weapon against out-of-touch Washington Democrats on the most important issue Americans are concerned about.

Boehner said upon the video’s release: “The American people are asking ‘where are the jobs?,’ and as this video shows, Washington Democrats still have no answers.  With the Pledge to America, Republicans are offering a new and better way to address the people’s priorities, starting with a plan to create jobs and end economic uncertainty.”

The video kicks off a weeklong effort by Republicans to ask the question Americans are asking – where are the jobs? – and further highlight Washington Democrats’ job-killing policies.  Republicans will also continue to press for immediate enactment of the Pledge to America, a governing agenda that offers a new and better way to address the people’s priorities, starting with a clear plan to create jobs and end economic uncertainty.

SCRIPT: “WHERE ARE THE JOBS?,” FROM PARTY MANTRA TO NATIONAL RALLYING CRY

GRAPHIC: “Americans have a question for President Obama…”

NBC’S CHUCK TODD: “Dr. Romer, let me ask this simple question that a lot of people are asking, ‘where are the jobs?’”

GRAPHIC: “95,000 jobs lost in September”

FOX’S NEIL CAVUTO: “…Where are the jobs?”

GRAPHIC: “Unemployment: 9.6 percent”

CBS’ KATIE COURIC: “…unemployment still so high, where are the jobs?”

GRAPHIC: “14.8 million Americans unemployed”

NBC’S DAVID GREGORY: “But where are the jobs?”

GRAPHIC: “2.5 million jobs lost since the ‘stimulus’ was signed into law.”

NBC’S MATT LAUER: “Do you get any question more often than, ‘where are the jobs?’”

CNBC’S MARIA BARTIROMO: “No.  That is the single most important question right now.”

GRAPHIC: “14 straight months of 9.5+ percent unemployment.”

HOUSE REPUBLICAN LEADER JOHN BOEHNER (R-OH): “The American people are still asking the question, ‘where are the jobs?’”

GRAPHIC: “Find better solutions in the GOP’s Pledge to America.  Facebook.com/PledgeToAmerica.”

BACKGROUND: REPUBLICANS MAKE “WHERE ARE THE JOBS?” PART OF THE NATIONAL LEXICON

June 2009: “GOP: ‘Where are the jobs?’ on big fed spending.  Republicans concerned about the Obama administration’s big spending on economic stimulus, energy and health care are asking, ‘Where are the jobs?’” (Associated Press, 6/27/09)

July 2009: “In rapid-fire speeches on the House floor Tuesday morning, congressional Republicans attacked the stimulus and sought to tie the jobless rate to the question of Obama’s political judgment, repeating the refrain: ‘Where are the jobs?’” (The Denver Post, 7/22/09)

October 2009: “Whatever the fate of health care legislation, persistently high unemployment has made ‘Where are the jobs?’ the most potent Republican campaign argument as next year’s midterm elections come into view.” (The New York Times, 10/4/09)

February 2010: “Republicans, meanwhile, taunted Obama with a familiar refrain: Where are the jobs the president promised in exchange for the billions of dollars already spent?” (Associated Press, 2/6/10)

May 2010: “Yet the varied focus has left Democrats open to criticism from Republicans, who have adopted ‘where are the jobs?’ as a rallying cry.” (The Hill, 5/5/10)

July 2010: “With Republicans demanding to know ‘where are the jobs?’ — the refrain adopted by the House Republican leader, Representative John A. Boehner of Ohio…” (The New York Times, 7/8/10)

August 2010: “Republicans have made “where are the jobs?” their mantra…” (AFP, 8/7/10)

September 2010: “Economically, the GOP’s Pledge to America, released Thursday, is aimed at small businesses… ‘Where are the jobs?’ – a theme in GOP campaign stump speeches – is the subtext of the new governing agenda.” (The Christian Science Monitor, 9/23/10)

October 2010: “And Boehner has worked relentlessly to keep angry US voters focused on the sour US economy and unemployment, demanding to know ‘where are the jobs?’ and urging cuts in government spending to rein in galloping US debt.” (AFP, 10/14/10)

PRESS RELEASE

  • Army Refers Charges Against Lakin To Court Martial
  • Military Judge Appointed
  • Arraignment Set for Hearing on August 6, 2010
Washington, D.C., August 2, 2010. The Army has now referred charges against LTC Terrence Lakin for a General Court Martial.  This action triggered the appointment of a Military Judge to preside over the trial, which will likely be scheduled before October, and held in Washington, D.C. at Ft. McNair.
On August 6, 2010 at Ft. McNair in Washington, D.C., the court will convene for the purpose of Judge Lind taking Lakin’s plea to the charges which consist of “missing movement” and of refusing to obey orders.
Today Lakin stated: “I am not guilty of these charges, and will plead ‘not guilty’ to them because of my conviction that our Commander-in-Chief may be ineligible under the United States Constitution to serve in that highest of all offices.  The truth matters. The Constitution matters. If President Obama is a natural born citizen then the American people deserve to see proof, and if he is not, then I believe the orders in this case were illegal.”
If convicted, Lakin faces up to four years at hard labor in a federal penitentiary.
LTC Lakin is a doctor and is in his 18th  year of service in the Army. He is Board Certified in Family Medicine and Occupational and Environmental Medicine.  He has been recognized for his outstanding service as a flight surgeon for year-long tours in Honduras, Bosnia and Afghanistan.  He was also awarded the Bronze Star for his service in Afghanistan and recognized in 2005 as one of the Army Medical Department’s outstanding flight surgeons.
In March of this year, he announced in a video posted on YouTube that he would refuse to obey orders until receiving proof of the President’s eligibility. So far, more than 200,000 people have viewed that video.
Army Col. Denise R. Lind will preside over the trial.  Before becoming a judge, she served tours of duty both prosecuting and defending soldiers in court martial proceedings. She is a 1982 magna cum laude graduate of Siena College, and earned her law degree from Albany Law School in 1985.  As Military Judge, she will decide all matters of law, including requests from the defense for discovery, and a motion the prosecution has said it will make to determine the lawfulness of the orders LTC Lakin is charged with refusing to obey.  A “jury” comprised of Army officers will decide based on the facts whether Lakin is guilty or not guilty of the various felony-equivalent charges pending against him.
In standing up for his convictions and in keeping with his training that illegal orders must be disobeyed, LTC Lakin has been widely praised for upholding the rule of law and the paramount supremacy in our society of the United States Constitution.
Lakin is represented by military counsel, and by Paul Jensen, a civilian attorney from California who has been provided to him by the American Patriot Foundation, a non-profit group incorporated in 2003 to foster appreciation and respect for the U.S. Constitution, which has established a fund for Lakin’s legal defense.

LTC TERRY LAKIN MAKES FORMAL REQUEST TO COMMANDING GENERAL FOR DEPOSITION

PRESS RELEASE

* Lakin Makes Formal Request of Hawaii Deposition
* DECORATED ARMY DOCTOR LTC TERRY LAKIN MAKES FORMAL REQUEST TO COMMANDING GENERAL FOR DEPOSITION OF HAWAII STATE DEPT OF HEALTH
* Testimony Sought of “Custodian of Records” AND Production of all records relating to President
* Decision to be made by Army Major General

Washington, D.C., July 29, 2010. The Army doctor who is facing a court martial for refusing to obey orders, including a deployment order for his second tour of duty in Afghanistan, has formally requested his Commanding General approve a deposition in Hawaii of the records-keeper of the State Department of Health-and the production of all of their records concerning Barack Obama.

The records Lakin seeks have been the subject of intense interest ever since the closing days of the 2008 presidential campaign when a document appeared on the internet purporting to be a certification that Hawaii’s Dept. of Health had records showing he had been born in Honolulu. Since then, Dr. Chiyome Fukino the head of that agency has made public statements on the subject, but has refused all requests for copies of the actual records in the Department’s custody. Recently, a former Hawaii elections clerk has come forward saying that he was told that the Department’s records showed Obama was NOT born in Hawaii.

The United States Constitution requires that a person be a “natural born citizen” to be elected to the presidency. If Mr. Obama was not born in Honolulu as he has claimed, then he is unlikely to be a “natural born citizen”. An examination of the records kept by the Hawaii Dept. of Health are an essential first step in ascertaining Mr. Obama’s constitutional eligibility to hold the office to which he was elected in 2008.

While no civil litigant has obtained discovery of these records, and all the civil lawsuits seeking those records have been dismissed on procedural grounds, Lakin’s case is different because he is the subject of criminal prosecution, and upon conviction stands in jeopardy of being sentenced to years at hard labor in the penitentiary.

Lakin’s request was submitted by his counsel to the Commanding General of the Military District of Washington, Major General Karl R. Horst, under Rule 702(b) of the Rules for Courts-Martial, which provides that “A convening authority who has the charges for disposition or, after referral, the convening authority or the military judge may order that a deposition be taken on request of a party.”

Lakin’s civilian attorney has been provided to him by the American Patriot Foundation, a non-profit group incorporated in 2003 to foster appreciation and respect for the U.S. Constitution, which has established a fund for Lakin’s legal defense. Further details are available on the Foundation’s website, http://www.safeguardourconstitution.com.

Did Marshall University Research Corporation Make a Stimulus Quote Mistake?

I just can’t seem to tear myself away from stimuluswatch.org as there never appears to be any progress. Case in point ~ Marshall University Research Corporation:

University Communications – Press Release

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Thursday, September 03, 2009
Contact: Ginny Painter, Communications Director, Marshall University Research Corporation 304-746-1964


Marshall research community to benefit from $2.6 million federal stimulus award to state

HUNTINGTON, W.Va. – Marshall University researchers and students will benefit from a $2.6 million National Science Foundation grant to the West Virginia Higher Education Policy Commission.

The cyberinfrastructure award, which was announced earlier this week by U.S. Sen. Jay Rockefeller and West Virginia Gov. Joe Manchin, will assist with scientific discovery by building capacity and promoting the use of high-performance computing cluster resources at Marshall University, West Virginia University and West Virginia State University.

More than $1 million of the grant funds will be used at Marshall over the next three years to help upgrade computing networks and enhance immersive visualization capabilities.

Dr. Tony Szwilski, professor of engineering and director of the university’s Center for Environmental, Geotechnical and Applied Sciences, will coordinate the project on Marshall’s campus. Other members of the Marshall community who are involved include Dr. Jan Fox, senior vice president for information technology and chief information officer; Joseph Fuller, associate professor of  computer science; Dr. Venkat Gudivada, professor of  computer science; and Dr. Jack Smith, visualization manager.

According to Dr. John Maher, vice president for research and executive director of the Marshall University Research Corporation, the grant will be used to establish advanced high-performance computing and visualization resources at Marshall and to assist with connection to other high-performance computing systems and resources around the world, allowing faculty researchers – and their students – to collaborate in real time without geographic limitations.

“Engineering and scientific research today require computing infrastructure that will allow faculty to work with very large data sets and complex computational systems. This project will give our researchers tools to make them more competitive for outside funding, and will allow them to work with colleagues across the country and around the world,” said Maher. “We are pleased to be part of this collaborative.”

Fox added that the computerized visualization capabilities provided through the grant will help faculty communicate and explore both abstract and concrete ideas in health care and scientific and engineering research.

By providing computing power that was, until recently, available only to the most prestigious research institutions, this project will assist Marshall’s growing research community in its quest to address problems that require the minds and resources of a global, collaborative community,” she said. “From the development of approaches to real-time, image-guided surgery to the provision of a platform for management of communities, emergencies and other complex processes, the capabilities provided by this funding will have a long-term, positive impact on our community, state and nation.”

In addition to the research equipment that will be provided through the grant, the project will help develop a work force that can create and sustain cyber-based systems, tools and services. A network of faculty and information technology professional staff will be developed at Marshall to help researchers expand the use of high-performance computing and advanced visualization in their work, as well as to provide expertise on the operational and technical aspects of using supercomputing resources.

“Cyberinfrastructure includes computational systems, data and information management, visualization environments and people – all linked together by collaborative software and advanced networks,” said Szwilski. “These significant resources will be a catalyst at Marshall for technology innovation and economic development.”

He added that complementary outreach activities will be undertaken at the high school, undergraduate and graduate levels to help teach students computational science and visualization skills, also with the goal of developing a high-tech work force.

The award was funded under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009. For more information, contact Szwilski at szwilski@marshall.edu.

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.

Liberty and Justice for All? But not for Michael Behenna Still! Army Court of Appeals Sits on its Hands!

To the thousands of Michael Behenna supporters:

The New York Times recently reported (see link below) that the US military has initiated a policy to “reintegrate” imprisoned Taliban fighters to their Afghan communities. These Taliban fighters were caught with evidence that they had killed our soldiers, but are released to their families in an active war zone with merely a ‘pledge’ that they will not return to the Taliban.  This appears to be the latest attempt to win the hearts and minds of our enemies and taking the ‘catch and release policy’ to a whole new level.

This brings us to Michael’s case.  Michael has been incarcerated by the Army for over a year now.    We have asked at every level that Michael’s constitutional right to a fair trial be granted so that all the evidence is disclosed to the jury.  Doesn’t seem too much to ask for an American citizen who fought for his country does it? Yet Michael’s request for a new trial has been stranded.  The Army seems to be in no hurry to have Michael’s case in front of the Army Court of Appeals as they have yet to file their response to Michael’s brief which was filed back in December 2009.

There is a double standard in play here where enemy combatants are given mercy, but our soldiers/Marines are denied mercy. For example, Marine SGT Larry Hutchins whose conviction was overturned several weeks by the Navy Appellate Court is STILL IN CUSTODY while the Navy appeals the decision to the next appellate level.

During the past year we have come to know the families of the other soldiers/Marines who have been charged and convicted of ‘murder’ of Al-Qaeda or insurgents while in a combat zone.  We have watched as these soldiers/Marines and their families prepare for clemency hearings before the military clemency boards. (The Armed Forces have a procedure, independent of the appellate process, where an incarcerated soldier/Marine can appear before a clemency board and ask for a reduction of his sentence, or if the individual has served at least 1/3 of his sentence they may request parole.) We have heard the hopelessness in the voices of the families when they learn that their son or husband will not receive ANY reduction in their sentence.  It is difficult for these military families to know that based on a ‘solemn’ pledge Taliban fighters are released by the SAME US military leadership and allowed to return home to their families. What message does the US military send when we punish our own soldiers more harshly then we punish the combatants who have killed our brave men and women on the front lines of this war on terrorism?

Many of the soldiers/Marines I am speaking of, including our son, would never find themselves involved in the criminal justice system but for their combat experience.  These soldiers/Marines do not have previous criminal histories, and their military records are replete with honorable service including purple hearts, bronze stars, and multiple deployments in defense of our country.  Some of these soldiers fell victim to the military’s ‘catch and release’ policy that returns enemy combatants to the battlefield where they return to fight our soldiers time and time again.   Yet others were protecting themselves or their men in a combat zone. Even if they made mistakes in judgment during war, should they be sentenced to 10-40 years while the enemy is totally forgiven?  Why shouldn’t the SAME military leadership afford our combat soldiers/Marines a second chance!

If the US military will release Taliban fighters simply on a pledge by their families that they will not rejoin the Taliban then we ask the same for our troops.  These soldiers/Marines are not a threat to our society and deserve to be home with their families.  We ask that you the American public stand with us.  Our request is that each of you vouch for these soldiers/Marines and demand that our military extend the same mercy to them as they did to the enemy combatants who are trying to kill our soldiers every day.

Please write a letter to your Senator, Congressman, and the Secretary of Defense and advise them that this double-standard will not be tolerated.

Bless you for your continued support,

Scott and Vicki Behenna

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.

LTC Terry Lakin has tried in vain to get the same verification from our President that he has been asked to provide countless times in his career, for many jobs, and to obtain a security clearance for the trusted positions he has held within the U.S. Armed Forces.
