Oath Keepers

It’s really interesting, to see the things people hypnotize themselves into believing. This guy is the poster child of the Oath Keepers, the organization of police and military who “refuse to follow unlawful orders.”

You can see where this is going, right?

Washington, D.C., April 5, 2010. Army Lt. Col. Terrence Lakin has officially received a written warning from his brigade commander that he is about to be court-martialled for his principled stance in refusing to obey what he feels are illegal orders. “Failure to follow your … orders may result in … court martial…Specifically, [for] … the offenses of AWOL (Article 86, UCMJ), Missing Movement (Article 87, UCMJ), Willfully Disobeying a Lawful Order (Article 90, UCMJ) and/or Contempt Towards Officials (Article 88, UCMJ),” an official Army communication to Lakin warned. The document went on to threaten: “If found guilty at a court-martial, you could be sentenced to … confinement for … years in a military prison.” A copy of the full statement as given to LTC Lakin can be viewed at

Undaunted, Lt. Col. Lakin has not changed his position. On March 30, 2010, the American Patriot Foundation posted on Youtube a video of LTC Lakin explaining his position: “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”, he states in the video, which has now been viewed more than 80,000 times in less than a week.
