Lt. Col. Lakin is one such man, that is a man with courage. This gentle man did what no other currently serving officer or enlisted man or woman has done to date, that is, he stood alone before God and Country honorably fulfilling his sworn Oath –
“I, (state your name), having been appointed a (rank) in the United States (branch of service), do solemnly swear (or affirm) thatI 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; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the office upon which I am about to enter. So help me God.”
The Lt. Colonel stood his ground by defying an order handed down by the US Commander In Chief, Barack H. Obama. He defied this order on the grounds that the CIC is serving in direct violation of Article II of the United States Constitution. Rather than the CIC providing records to substantiate his non violation, he chose to make an example of Lt. Colonel Lakin by employing a full military court martial.
You tell me, what honorable man would deny a career military officer discovery, and instead use the full weight of his office to court martial him? None! That’s who.
For crying out loud all American’s have a paper trail documenting our vaccinations, our church activities, our educations, our sports activities, our employment, our purchases and more yet, somehow people have rationalized that it’s okay that this President doesn’t have to show us anything. What RUBBISH! Hell, a kid can’t even play Wiffle ball without providing a birth certificate yet this guy not only tells us that he is a dual citizen, US & Kenyan parents, but goes onto tell us he’s a tri-citizen, US/Kenyan parents and then adopted Indonesian father! Helllllllooooo, illegal, ineligible, usurper!!!
Oh, but I digress.
Lt. Colonel Lakin was court martialled and served out his sentence at Ft. Leavenworth in a medium security military prison. He was released over the weekend and embraced his family on Sunday night.
Prior to returning home, he and his brother, Dr. Greg Lakin, were interviewed by Marco Ciavolino of Radio Sandy Springs The Lt. Colonel shared with the listeners how he made the most of the last six months in confinement and what may lay ahead in his future. For now though, all he seems to want is to return to his family and hang out with his kids.
We know whatever direction the Lt. Colonel chooses to take it will be met with great success, and we know our military has lost not only a great physician but an honorable, decent and humble Officer.
Welcome home, Lt. Colonel Lakin. Welcome home.
