Another idiot thinks Obama isn't our President...

...and is trying to use it to get out of military service? W.T.F.?


US Reservist Stefan Frederick Cook received his active duty orders on June 9th, and by July 8th he filed suit under lawyer Orly Taitz, the slime lawyer heading up the class action lawsuit against Obama, challenging his Presidency. This is ridiculous. Cook wanted "conscientious objector" status, because he didn't want to go to Afghanistan if the President isn't a Republican. Oops, I mean because he believes that the President isn't the President. What? This turncoat should be court-marshalled for this. Isn't there some kind of military code against bringing frivilous lawsuits against your Commander-in-Chief?

Good thing the judge had some sense. US District Judge Clay Land dismissed the lawsuit today because the soldier had already received a reprieve from the military, rendering the lawsuit moot. But the Judge had some good stuff to say about this stupid lawsuit:

..."[The Founding Fathers] concluded that the Judicial Branch, the unelected branch, should not inject itself into purely ‘political disputes,’ and that it should not entangle itself in hypothetical debates which had not ripened to an actual legal dispute.”

But here's the clincher: Cook believes this crap.

"...[Cook] fears that if he executed Obama’s orders, he could be prosecuted as a war criminal
for following the orders of an illegitimate commander-in-chief."

But here's where he could, and should be, prosecuted in a court-marshall:

Land asked Taitz whether Cook requested to simply have his orders rescinded, instead of filing a lawsuit.

Taitz said she filed an Article 138 complaint with the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Adm. Michael Mullen. An Article 138 complaint gives members of the armed forces under the Uniform Code of Military Justice the right to request redress if they believe they had been wronged by their commanding officer.

According to Ausprung, an Article 138 complaint has to go through the soldier’s chain of command. Cook did not go through his chain of command, Ausprung said.

Anyone who believes this garbage is an idiot. But using it to get out of military service? Wow. "Coward" isn't a strong enough word.

To be a coward is one thing, but to be one and then blame it on not being able to tolerate losing the last election and wasting the court's time and money with his ridiculousnes is another.

About this Cook cuckoo, if I were to go bonkers over every “voices in the head” nutcase taken away in a paddy wagon, sooner or later I’d go cuckoo myself and end up in a paddy wagon. One irony is that Cook’s cuckoo lawsuit cost him his job. Serves him right. But this concerns me more:

According to this Media Matter Report, Lou Dobbs repeatedly said on his radio show that President Obama needs to "produce a birth certificate" and that Obama's birth certificate posted online has "some issues" -- claims that have been dismissed and even ridiculed by his CNN colleagues.”

Dobbs is far more dangerous, in my opinion, because of his media exposure and his ability to reach millions of listeners, he has it within his power to create a real case of mass hysteria. This is no longer journalism. Time to write CNN and demand his removal.

It just goes to show you that there are stupid people all over this country. People that will believe and sue over just about anything and everything.

No so simple!!
Hawaii statute 338-17.8 permits the issuance of a Hawaii birth certificate ot persons born outside of the U.S. Check it here:

This is the text:
[§338-17.8] Certificates for children born out of State. (a) Upon application of an adult or the legal parents of a minor child, the director of health shall issue a birth certificate for such adult or minor, provided that proof has been submitted to the director of health that the legal parents of such individual while living without the Territory or State of Hawaii had declared the Territory or State of Hawaii as their legal residence for at least one year immediately preceding the birth or adoption of such child.

(b) Proof of legal residency shall be submitted to the director of health in any manner that the director shall deem appropriate. The director of health may also adopt any rules pursuant to chapter 91 that he or she may deem necessary or proper to prevent fraudulent applications for birth certificates and to require any further information or proof of events necessary for completion of a birth certificate.

(c) The fee for each application for registration shall be established by rule adopted pursuant to chapter 91. [L 1982, c 182, §1]

But it would say where the original birthplace was, anon.

And Hawaii has confirmed that Obama was born in Honolulu.

You can see the birth certificate here:

As I stated, anyone believing that he was born outside the US is an idiot.

I was hoping a blogger I read would go to town on this.

This guy deserves the worst sort of contempt.

I also remember the guys during the Bush Administration who joined up for the Army, and then deserted because they fought in Iraq. Those guys are contemptibly stupid too.

Anon: OK, assuming that you are right and Obama really isn't President. Well, between this stupid deserter and the Commander in Chief is an entire chain of command (col, major, general, etc). This coward is flipping the bird at everyone above him in the chain of command. This is pretty massive insubordination against everyone above him. Not just Obama.

Octopus: Dobbs is pretty dangerous as it is. Almost nightly on his show, he bashed immigrants. Just managing to carefully avoid racist language.

James' Muse said...

Exactly. This guy is a deserter trying to cover it with a partisan lawsuit. I think anyone believing this is on par with other government conspiracists, UFO coverups, X-Files BS.

Most of it is just partisan sore loosing, just like Gore/Lieberman in 2000. Its ridiculous.

Hey Lynne, Get a life!
I'm getting sick of seeing your dumb comments all over these boards.

Well I for one can't wait till we get rid of him...the sooner the better for me.

Call me an idiot if you will, but I think HE'S the Idiot.

James' Muse said...

Get rid of who? I don't think you're an idiot if you disagree with Obama. But if you believe this trash about him being some communist manchurian candidate who really isn't a citizen, than you are either an idiot or sadly paranoid.

But this soldier is more than any of those: he is a coward and a turncoat.

TRUTH 101 said...

The guy is a dupe for a cabal of right wingers that think they are doing some great task by playing this ignorant non citizen card.

I'll leave the branding of the deserter as a coward or whatever to those that served in combat.

I think JKOW was refering to the deserter James. He thinks the guy is an idiot and wants to be rid of him.

James' Muse said...

I hope he was referring to the deserter, Truth. But I doubt it.

He is really insane in trying to say that Obama is not the President of the United States of America. I say insane because that is an electoral verdict of the people of this nation and even the courts cannot turn over this.
