U.S. Army Maj. Stefan Frederick Cook was given orders to deploy to Afghanistan. But he said he shouldn’t have to go because Obama is not a U.S. citizen and therefore not legally President and Commander in Chief. What happened next is amazing.... the military revoked the orders with no reason given - and speculation is that the government would rather not see this thing go to court before a judge!

There are many many lawsuits and claims that Barack Obama was never eligible to be president because he wasn’t born in the United States. And there is credible evidence that suggests he is not legally eligible to serve as President of the US. (see more here)
Like it or not, the questions still remain, and Obama refuses to respond to these claims other than to block lawsuits and refuse to produce documents. His Press Secretary Gibbs and other members of his administration laugh it off and ridicule folks bringing up the questions - but so far we have seen NO proof. The authenticity of the short form Certificate of Live Birth which was released on the Internet last year has been brought into question as well. People want to see the official long form birth certificate ... the one signed by the doctors and the hospital administrators, and his parents, the one Obama is tenaciously keeping from view from the American public. Interestingly enough, average Americans must routinely produce this document to obtain various other documents. So why doesn't Obama?
According to this report:
Cook’s lawyer, Orly Taitz, who has also challenged the legitimacy of Obama’s presidency in other courts, filed a request last week in federal court seeking a temporary restraining order and status as a conscientious objector for his client.It looked like this case might be heard, where others have been stonewalled and blocked from proceeding forward on a flimsy "lack of standing" basis.
In the 20-page document — filed July 8 with the U.S. District Court for the Middle District of Georgia — the California-based Taitz asks the court to consider granting his client’s request based upon Cook’s belief that Obama is not a natural-born citizen of the United States and is therefore ineligible to serve as commander-in-chief of the U.S. Armed Forces.
Cook further states he “would be acting in violation of international law by engaging in military actions outside the United States under this President’s command. ... simultaneously subjecting himself to possible prosecution as a war criminal by the faithful execution of these duties.”
Cook, a reservist, received the orders mobilizing him to active duty on June 9.
According to this document, which accompanies Cook’s July 8 application for a temporary restraining order, he has been ordered to report to MacDill Air Force Base in Tampa, Fla., on Wednesday. From there, the Florida resident would go to Fort Benning before deploying overseas.
Then, all of a sudden the military orders were revoked after Cook argued that he should not be required to serve under a president who has not proven his legitimacy for office. People may argue that the revocation of his orders to deploy may or may not have anything to do with his refusal to obey his orders and take the eligibility issue to court, but it sure looks suspiciously like it might...
We won! We won before we even arrived,” said Orly Taitz, his attorney. “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!”Imagine that!
She continued, “They just said, ‘Order revoked.’ No explanation. No reasons – just revoked.”
In a related story - when Obama visited Ghana last week, this report was filed by Modern Ghana news (also reprinted here) :
"For Ghana, Obama's visit will be a celebration of another milestone in African history as it hosts the first-ever African-American President on this presidential visit to the continent of his birth."
The controversy is NOT over. And whatever is being said or not said - the bigger point is that nobody can seem to get to the facts concerning Mr. Obama’s birthplace, much less his background documentation. If WE The People are bound to produce birth documents for some employment, licenses and so on, then why is the President exempt? He is not an ordinary person, he is the President and therefore we must know what his documents say to make fully certain that he is eligible to serve as elected. If he is in truth not natural born as our Constitution requires then he must step down. If he is illegitimate as president then every document he signs is null and void. We have on our hands a Constitutional crisis.
No hospital is claiming he was born there. No American doctor is claiming that (s)he delivered him. You would think with this president's popularity that people wopuld be coming out of the woodwork saying that they were there at his birth - or some plaque would be placed at the hospital of his birth. We have heard of people claiming to be present at his birth in Kenya though. At that time his mother would have been too young to confer citizenship and his father was a British citizen.
We have not seen these:
• A certified copy of Obama's original, signed “vault” birth certificate.
• Certified copies of Obama's reissued and sealed birth certificates in the names Barack Hussein Obama, Barry Soetoro, Barry Obama, Barack Dunham and Barry Dunham.
• A certified copy of Obama's Certification of Citizenship.
• Certified copies of Obama's admission forms for Occidental College,Columbia University and Harvard Law School.
• Certified copies of any legal documents changing his name.
Where is the long form birth certificate? The one with the doctor's signature and other pertinent information regarding his birth?
How long will judges stonewall this and keep the evidence from the courts? Will Sotomayor protect the president if this gets to the Supreme Court? That's a question not likely to be asked during her hearings this week.
Until then, we will keep seeing ads like this:

Look at the evidence and the questions being raised.
Hey - we just want the truth.
Obama - needs to produce his records or step down, or admit that he has total disregard for the US Constitution and that his oath of office means nothing to him.
