Military Excuses Soldier Who Challenged Obama’s Citizenship

By Susan Brinkmann, OCDS Staff Writer The soldier who refused to report for deployment to Afghanistan because it would require him to serve under a president who never proved his eligibility for office, has had his orders revoked. World Net Daily (WND) is reporting that the U.S. military has revoked the orders of deployment for Major Stefan Frederick Cook, a member of the U.S. Army Reserves. The decision was handed down even before the hearing, which was scheduled to take place today at 9:30 a.m. Major Cook refused to accept his deployment, saying he believed the orders were illegal because President Obama never proved his citizenship. “ . . . (I)f President Obama is found not to be a ‘natural-born citizen,’ he is not eligible to be commander-in-chief,” Cook told WND hours after the case was filed. “[Then] any order coming out of the presidency or his chain of command is illegal. Should I deploy, I would essentially be following an illegal [order]. If I happened to be captured by the enemy in a foreign land, I would not be privy to the Geneva Convention protections.” According to Cook’s attorney, Orly Taitz, the order was simply revoked without explanation. “They just said, ‘order revoked.’ No explanation. No reasons – just revoked,” she said. Cook’s allegations involve the continuing controversy surrounding the President’s birth and his refusal to produce a valid birth certificate proving he was born in the U.S. Dozens of lawsuits have already been filed demanding proof that the president was born in Hawaii, as he insists. However, if he was born out of the country, in Kenya, as his paternal grandmother claims, even though his mother was American she was too young to confer American citizenship to her son under the law at the time. Other challenges raise the issue of Obama’s dual citizenship through his father, who was a Kenyan subject to jurisdiction in the United Kingdom at the time of his birth, thus making him a dual citizen. As some of the cases contend, the framers of the Constitution exclude dual citizens from qualifying as natural born. To date, the president has refused to produce a birth certificate which would put all of these questions to rest. In fact, WND reports that he has spent hundreds of thousands of dollars to avoid being forced to produce the document. As a consequence, the controversy rages on, and has become even more pronounced since the president took office. Only two days after his inauguration, the president sent a letter on what appears to be White House stationary to the Kapi’olani Medical Center in Hawaii on the occasion of its centennial celebration. In the letter, he refers to the Center as “the place of my birth.” The letter was posted on the Center’s website for nearly six months until WND revealed that it was never an actual “paper” letter but mere HTML coding. Shortly thereafter, the hospital removed the letter from its site and the White House now refuses to confirm if it even exists. This is just one of a growing number of documents the president is refusing to release to the public. Others include school records such as his Columbia University thesis and his Harvard Law Review articles, scholarly articles from the University of Chicago, his passport, medical records and baptismal certificate. This secrecy has resulted in raising numerous questions about the president that just aren’t going away. According to Ms. Taitz, more members of the military have joined the cause of refusing to serve someone who may not be an American citizen. She says the issue “must be resolved immediately.” “We’re going to be asking the judge to issue an order for Obama to provide his vital records to show he is legitimately president,” she told WND. “If he is legitimate, then his vital records will prove it. If he is illegitimate, then he should not have been there in the first place.” © All Rights Reserved, Living His Life Abundantly®/Women of Grace®
