    Dr. Orly Taitz


    A U.S. Army Reserve major from Florida scheduled to report for deployment to Afghanistan within days has had his military orders revoked after arguing he should not be required to serve under a president who has not proven his eligibility for office.

    His attorney, Orly Taitz, confirmed to WND the military has rescinded his impending deployment orders.

    "We won! We won before we even arrived," she said with excitement. "It means that the military has nothing to show for Obama. It means that the military has directly responded by saying Obama is illegitimate – and they cannot fight it. Therefore, they are revoking the order!"

    She continued, "They just said, 'Order revoked.' No explanation. No reasons – just revoked."

    A hearing on the questions raised by Maj. Stefan Frederick Cook, an engineer who told WND he wants to serve his country in Afghanistan, was scheduled for July 16 at 9:30 a.m.

    Join the petition campaign to make President Obama reveal his long-form, hospital-generated birth certificate!

    "As an officer in the armed forces of the United States, it is [my] duty to gain clarification on any order we may believe illegal. With that said, if President Obama is found not to be a 'natural-born citizen,' he is not eligible to be commander-in-chief," he told WND only hours after the case was filed.

    (Story continues below)




    "[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," he said.

    The order for the hearing in the federal court for the Middle District of Georgia from U.S. District Judge Clay D. Land said the hearing on the request for a temporary restraining order would be held Thursday.

    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.

    Cook said he was scheduled to report for duty tomorrow, on July 15, to deploy to Afghanistan as part of President Obama's plan to increase pressure of insurgent forces there.

    He told WND he would be prepared for a backlash against him as a military officer, since members of the military swear to uphold and follow their orders. However, he noted that following an illegal order would be just as bad as failing to follow a legal order.

    Before news of the orders being revoked were reported, MSNBC anchor Keith Olbermann tonight called Cook a "jackass" and Taitz a "conwoman," as he labeled both of them the "worst persons in the world." He flayed the soldier as "an embarrassment to all those who have served without cowardice."

    Named as defendants in the case are Col. Wanda Good, Col. Thomas Macdonald, Secretary of Defense Robert Gates and Obama, described as "de facto president of the United States."


    According to the court filing, Cook affirmed when he joined the military, he took the following oath: "I, Stefan Frederick Cook, do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I 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; and that I will obey the orders of the president of the United States and the orders of the officers appointed over me, according to the regulations and the Uniform Code of Military Justice. So help me God."

    According to the claim, "Plaintiff submits that it is implicit though not expressly stated that an officer is and should be subject to court-martial, because he will be derelict in the performance of his duties, if he does not inquire as to the lawfulness, the legality, the legitimacy of the orders which he has received, whether those orders are specific or general."

    The military courts offer no option for raising the question, so he turned to civilian courts to consider "a question of paramount constitutional and legal importance: the validity of the chain of command under a president whose election, eligibility, and constitutional status appear open to serious question."

    "Barack Hussein Obama, in order to prove his constitutional eligibility to serve as president, basically needs only produce a single unique historical document for the Plaintiff’s inspection and authentication: namely, the 'long-form' birth certificate which will confirm whether Barack Hussein Obama was in fact born to parents who were both citizens of the United States in Honolulu, Hawaii, in or about 1961," explains the complaint.

    Taitz said she will attend the hearing to amend the temporary restraining order to an injunction because more members of the military have joined the cause.

    "We are going to be asking for release of Obama's records because now this completely undermines the military. It revoked this order, but it can come up with another order tomorrow. It can come up with orders for other people," she said. "Am I going to be flying around the country 1,000 times and paying the fees every time they issue an order?"

    Taitz said the issue "must be resolved immediately," and she will continue working to ensure Obama proves he is eligible for office.

    "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 said. "We're going to say, we have orders every day, and we'll have revocations every day. This issue has to be decided."

    She said there cannot be any harm to the president if he is legitimately holding office.

    "If he is legitimate, then his vital records will prove it," Taitz said. "If he is illegitimate, then he should not have been there in the first place."

    Asked what this decision means for every other serviceman who objects to deployment under a president who has not proven he is eligible for office, Taitz responded:

    "Now, we can have each and every member of the military – each and every enlistee and officer – file something similar saying 'I will not take orders until Obama is legitimately vetted.'"

    Multiple questions have been raised about what that would mean to the 2008 election, to the orders and laws Obama has signed and other issues, including whether he then is a valid commander-in-chief of the military.


    Press Secretary Robert Gibbs refused to confirm the authenticity of the alleged Jan. 24, 2009, letter from President Obama to his purported place of birth, Kapi'olani Medical Center. His remarks begin at the 55:27 mark of the press briefing. (Click photo to view)


    Obama has maintained he was born in Hawaii, and at least one hospital, Honolulu's Kapi'olani Medical Center for Women and Children, claims it received a letter from the president declaring his birth there.

    As WND reported, White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs refused to confirm that the letter which was used by the hospital to solicit donations is, in fact, a real correspondence.

    When WND exposed doubts about the authenticity of the letter because it was created with HTML computer code and had no presidential or White House seal, the hospital which for nearly six months proudly declared Obama was born at its facility commenced an active cover-up, hiding that White House letter from its original webpage and refusing to confirm such a letter actually exists.

    WND also reported that just within the last week, at least two reports have cited Obama's birth in Kenya. Wikipedia also was found to have been reporting on Obama's birth in Kenya, before a series of scrubs placed his birth in Honolulu.

    And that came on the heels of several online information sites changing the president's supposed birthplace from one hospital in Hawaii to another, after WND broke the news of the letter said to be from the White House.

    It means the military doesn't want to fly his butt back here for his court martial. That's all.
    - enfield

    Free men do not ask permission to bear arms.

    Something tells me there's a lot more to this story that's not being told. Refusal to "obey the orders of those appointed above you", in this case the Army Reserve Command, is a Courts Martial offense. Maybe they are going to grant "conscientious objector" status to him. Then again maybe they're planning to discharge him under "less than honorable" conditions. Either way to let him get away with this would cause more problems than it would be worth. How many others would use this excuse as a way of getting out of deploying? I guess we'll see what happens.

    Exclamation The article says the order was revoked

    If they were going to go after this guy fangs out they would need the order to stand just to be able to swat him with the UCMJ.

    He would be charged with the following

    Failure to go.
    Failure to follow a posted or written order.
    and finally
    Failure to follow the orders of the President and those appointed over him.

    The fact that his order was revoked...speaks volumes for the hot topic this is within the military community.

    I still find it strange CNN and Fox didn't report any of this. I understand the rest of the administration supporting flock but not those two. I'm still going to wait for the rest of the story.

    Lots of ?????? few answers, but one thing for certain this will get very interesting.....
    If they take it to the court martial level, then he gets a lawyer, and they get to bring up the legitimacy issue, you cannot be forced to serve as a conscious objector and that may be grounds for his refusal, but then I'm no lawyer.....

    I agree, the complete lack of media coverage of this story is as interesting as the story itself - as I know there are others within the ranks that hold this same challenge against the Kenyan... but aren't putting their necks on the block with the challenge like this guy. So why no coverage?

    I don't see this as an issue about not wanting to deploy nearly as much as a stage to bring light to a topic locked away in some DC bunker somewhere. I support this guy completely, as it takes big brass ones to put one's career as an Army officer on the line.
