Posted on 12/14/2010 11:48:35 PM PST by Smokeyblue
When Lt. Col. Terry Lakin, MD walks out of the chamber where he has faced a court-martial this week, he will emerge -- regardless of the verdict -- a towering American hero.
Nothing like the stupendous display which he has mounted -- of principled, sustained self-sacrifice and fearless defiance -- has been seen in decades on the American political stage. Together with the peril of actual battlefield engagement, it ranks alongside the greatest courageous stances even of the American Revolution itself. Patrick Henry, Nathan Hale: those kinds of stances.
This case is of shatteringly great significance, and if you don't know about it, well, you can thank the cowards, commies, and crooks at your favorite mainstream media Bureau of Disinformation, National Desk. Lt. Col. Lakin has been abandoned by the establishment press, dastards and lackeys almost to a one. In a just post-Obama world, there is hope that, one day, there will come the destruction of a thousand shameful careers in what was once journalism -- via abdication by the press of its vital role as Fourth Estate; desertion of its watch as the protector of American liberty; and its own knife-wielding, unforced, alacritous auto-castration.

Lt. Col. Lakin is a hero.
And it took an Army MD. Unreal. Where are the Infantry types with balls?
Military members (Lakin) should have NEVER been put in this position.
But I understand you sentiment.
Congress and the courts have failed miserably.
Hitler hid his past as Obama has.
I am most disgusted with the conservative yappers who failed to do their job. Gee! I already knew the Marxist media was traitorous.
I have essentially stopped listening to talk radio. Some things are deal breakers. I will never trust them again. I can't even stand to hear their voices. I now depend solely on Free Republic to get an overview of the news.
The conservative media ( especially Fox and talk radio) have played their hand. I now know that if and when tyranny comes, the yappers will sell their talents to the fascist oligarchy. They will spit shine the jack boots crushing our necks.
This is the kind of courage -- after the crawling, burrowing, light-averse invertebrates of the political landscape have long since slithered away and vanished -- that gets statues of a man built in public squares.
Slicker than snot...**ALL**...of them!
Very true, Not a single one of us knows much about Obama. Do you think our president should be a damn secret?
Thanks for posting this. He truly is a hero.
We must all do our part to support him.
We cannot let him do it alone.
The battlefield is not the only place where an American hero defends the Free Republic.
This old retired soldier gives you the hand salute, Colonel!
Deployed in Southwest Asia.
This man should be granted a Medal Of Honor. I do think one day he´ll be awarded one.
At the same time, a LIFE SENTENCE FOR HIGH TREASON should be granted for Barry Soetoro, Harry Reed, Nancy Pellosy and all at the democrat party, this very pit of snakes that are betraying USA.
How much has Obama spent to keep his Birth, Collge and other misc. records sealed?
Lt Col. Terry lakin is my hero. He has the bravest heart and bless him. I hope one day, he is proven correct and Obama is impeached.
