Nirther Puts Barry in Check


A US soldier challenging the legitimacy of orders issued under President Obama has had his deployment to Afghanistan rescinded two days before his case was to be heard in Federal Court:

[Major Stefan] Cook said without a legitimate president as commander-in-chief, members of the U.S. military in overseas actions could be determined to be "war criminals and subject to prosecution." He said the vast array of information about Obama that is not available to the public confirms to him "something is amiss."

"That and the fact the individual who is occupying the White House has not been entirely truthful with anybody," he said. "Every time anyone has made an inquiry, it has been either cast aside, it has been maligned, it has been laughed at or just dismissed summarily without further investigation. "You know what. It would be so simple to solve. Just produce the long-form document, certificate of live birth," he said.

It is certainly possible that Cook’s deployment was rescinded for some routine or operational reason. It is also possible that withdrawing the order—done without offering explanation or comment—is a legal maneuver to deny Cook standing to challenge the President’s qualifications.

If Cook is not deployed, his argument about becoming a war criminal would not apply, and his suit could be dismissed. If he were deployed and the suit advanced, Cook could use the court to compel Obama and/or the State of Hawai’i to produce Barry’s birth certificate.

This is a victory for the so-called Nirthers, who dispute Obama’s qualification as a natural-born citizen. Barry will have to show his papers, as Vox Day explains:

Of course, this also means that every soldier who doesn't wish to serve in Afghanistan or Iraq was just handed a get-out-of-war free card. If Obama/Soetoro does not come clean and release his documentation now to settle the matter, this will be an implicit confession that he is not, in fact, eligible to be president. How can he or his defenders possibly justify hiding all of the relevant documents when it means giving every soldier in the U.S. military a veto on accepting orders?

We’re heading toward either a withdrawal of all overseas troops, or to a President Biden.
