'We no longer have republic subservient to Constitution'

'We no longer have republic subservient to Constitution' A retired military officer who pursued all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court a legal challenge to Barack Obama's occupancy of the Oval Office says the conviction and sentencing of an active duty officer who raised similar questions signals the end of the "rule of law" in the United States.

Cmdr. Charles Kerchner’s legal case, handled by attorney Mario Apuzzo, alleged that Congress failed its constitutional duty to examine the legitimacy of a successful candidate during the Electoral College vetting process on Capitol Hill. The Supreme Court ultimately decided not to hear arguments, leaving standing a lower court’s dismissal.

Sign a petition to state elections officials demanding they remove the constitutional cloud over the presidency by requiring documentation of candidates’ eligibility.

Now Kerchner has attended, and is analyzing, the military’s court-martial of now-former Lt. Col. Terrence Lakin, who refused to deploy to Afghanistan because of concerns that Obama consistently refused to document his eligibility to serve as commander in chief. 

His comments came in an interview with Sharon Rondeau of The Post & Email.

The judge in Lakin’s case, Col. Denise Lind, ordered that Lakin could not raise the issue of Obama’s eligibility, could not seek through the discovery process evidence that would support him, could not bring in evidence to the trial and could not bring in the witnesses he sought.

The conviction, then, was assured before the panel of officers ever deliberated the question.

That means, warned Kerchner, “we no longer have a rule of law and a constitutional republic subservient to the fundamental law of the land, the U.S. Constitution.”
