Lakin Defense Options !!!


The Stand Up America BlogSTAND UP AMERICA EXCLUSIVE – Lakin Defense OptionsPublished on 09/03/10

Editor’s Note: The following report is solely the product of the authors and is posted here for the public to view, and discern for themselves. It is a scholarly work and may clear up many questions readers may have.

Courts Martial Defense For LTC Terrence LakinBy J.B. Williams and Timothy Harrington

World Net Daily, which has been following the Lakin trial step-by-step from the beginning, is reporting:

FT. MEADE, Md. – A career officer in the U.S. Army [Col. Denise R. Lind] acting as a judge in the prosecution of Lt. Col. Terrence Lakin today ruled that the military is no place for Barak Obama’s presidential eligibility to be evaluated.
According to the WND report, presiding authority Col. Denise R. Lind used the following arguments to deny LTC Lakin proper access to a defense, summarized in the following three paragraphs taken from the 40 minute long reading of her decision Army Col. Denise R. Lind today ruled in a hearing regarding the evidence to be allowed in the scheduled October court-martial of Lakin that he will be denied access to any of Obama’s records as well as any testimony from those who may have access to the records.

With her decision, Lind mirrored a number of federal judges who have ruled on civil lawsuits over Obama’s eligibility. They have without exception denied the plaintiffs’ access to any requested documentation regarding the president’s eligibility.
Lind ruled that it was “not relevant” for the military to be considering such claims, that the laws allegedly violated by Lakin were legitimate on their face and that the chain of command led up to the Pentagon, and that should have been sufficient for Lakin.

We find foundational flaws in Col. Lind’s decision, which Lakin’s defense team must seize upon in order to alter the current course of this trial.

1 – Lind’s authority is derived from the same place as LTC Lakin’s and all other members of the United States Military – from the supreme command of the office of Commander-in-Chief, the President of the United States.

2 – Lind is attempting to use her authority under her Commander-in-Chief to break the military chain of command, isolating the Commander-in-Chief of the US Military specifically, exempting the President from his position of authority in the chain of command, without which, Lind herself has no authority to convene the Courts Martial.

3 – Lind then reaches outside of the US Military Justice system to the Civil Court, relying upon civil court precedent to deny Lakin any access to discovery and thereby, a proper defense guaranteed him by the US Constitution and UCMJ, Uniform Code of Military Justice. Civil Court precedent has no legal standing in a UCMJ criminal proceeding. In fact, the UCMJ is based upon the Articles of War (aka War Articles) and is a “penal system” unlike the US Justice System – as explained by Col. William Winthrop in Military Law and Precedents. As a result, precedents set in courts outside of the UCMJ are without legal standing in any UCMJ proceeding.

4 – Not even in the UCMJ can the United States government deny the accused his/her right to a trial, complete with discovery of related evidence. Yet Lind attempts to do so, under the authority derived from her Commander-in-Chief. If the chain of command is broken, then Lind herself has no authority.

5 – Lind’s statement that the legality of the Commander-in-Chief is “not relevant” in matters of military command is false on its face. As stated in a sworn affidavit filed by LTG Thomas G. McInerney executed on August 20, 2010 – “In refusing to obey orders because of his doubts as to their legality, LTC Lakin has acted exactly as proper training dictates. – By thus stepping up to the bar, LTC Lakin is demonstrating the courage of his convictions and his bravery. – That said, it is equally essential that he be allowed access to the evidence that will prove whether he made the correct decision.”

6 – Lind attempts to break the chain of command at The Pentagon level, which she claims has no issue with the current Commander-in-Chief and that this should be good enough for Lakin. Yet she cannot break this chain of command without eliminating her own authority, and Lakin’s oath requires that he decide for himself whether or not his orders are legal, as affirmed in LTG McInerney’s sworn affidavit.

7 – At issue is not whether or not LTC Lakin refused orders, but rather whether or not he “unlawfully” refused orders. If his orders were not “lawful,” including but not limited to, emanating from a “lawful” chain of command which begins with a lawful Commander-in-Chief, then Lakin must be found NOT GUILTY of “unlawfully” refusing orders.
At the heart of the matter is whether or not his orders to deploy were “lawful.” LTC Lakin has questioned whether or not his deployment orders were “lawful” on the basis that he believes that the Commander-in-Chief from which those orders are issued, may not be “lawful,” therefore making any orders from the top of military command “unlawful.”
To determine whether or not Lakin is correct in his decision to refuse orders, it is paramount to discover with certainty whether or not his orders were issued by a “lawful” command.
As we know, Article II – Section I requires that only a “natural born citizen” of the United States can hold the office of President, Commander-in-Chief. In this regard, a fatal misstep in the Lakin defense has opened the door for the illegitimate statements now being made by Col. Denise R. Lind.

LTC Lakin failed to directly assert that Barack Hussein Obama is NOT legal in his command on the basis that we know with certainty that he is not a “natural born citizen,” – and that LTC Lakin is “lawfully” refusing to follow orders on this basis. Instead, LTC Lakin only asked the “birth place” question and tied that question to whether or not Mr. Obama could and would present an official “birth certificate” proving once and for all that he was indeed born in Hawaii, making the wrong assumption that if he could and would provide proof of said birth via an official birth certificate, which has never been released to date.

The fatal error revolves around the reality that Obama’s birth place is of no consequence in the matter of his status as a “natural born citizen” eligible for high Command of the US Military under Article II – Section I of the Constitution. Although there is no shortage of opinions on the subject of what the term “natural born citizen” means, there is no honest debate on the matter either.

Every Supreme Court Justice knows exactly what the term “natural born citizen” means, where it came from, why it exists in Article II requirements for the office of President and that Barack Hussein Obama is NOT a “natural born citizen,” indeed ineligible for the office he currently holds.

They know that LTC Lakin is right to “lawfully” refuse orders from an illegal Command.

We know this on the basis of the following critical facts:

1 – The term “natural born citizen” is derived from the Law of Nations. An international treaty establishing a set of rules used to establish a “nation,” the issue of nation and citizen sovereignty, and internationally recognized definitions of universal terms, including the term “natural born citizen.”

2 – The Law of Nations is specifically mentioned in the US Constitution as an enumerated power of Congress under Article I – Section VIII – Item X – “To define and punish offenses against the Law of Nations;” (Note that in the original Constitution, Law of Nations is capitalized, referring specifically to THE Law of Nations.)

3 – From Emerich de Vattel’s 1758 book on The Law of Nations, Chapter 19 § 212. – Of the citizens and natives – Vattel establishes – “in order to be of the country, it is necessary that a person be born of a father who is a citizen; for, if he is born there of a foreigner, it will be only the place of his birth, and not his country.”

4 – In a letter from Founder John Jay to then President of the Constitutional Convention George Washington, Jay stated – “Permit me to hint whether it would not be wise and seasonable to provide a strong check to the admission of foreigners into the administration of our national government; and to declare expressly that the command in chief of the American army shall not be given to, nor devolve on any but a natural born citizen.”

5 – It was later learned that President George Washington had actually taken out Vattel’s book on the Law of Nations from the local library in order to study proper implementation of law in our newly formed nation, and never returned that book. On the basis of known history and facts behind the Constitutional term “natural born citizen” which is based upon “natural law” explained in the Law of Nations as stated referred to in the US Constitution, the proper assertion is not at all related to the actual “birth place” of Barack Hussein Obama, II. The ongoing search for a Hawaiian birth certificate has no bearing on the subject of “natural born citizen” status for Barack Hussein Obama, II.

The only relative question is:

Was Barack Hussein Obama’s birth father a legal citizen of the United States of America at the time of his birth, no matter where in the world he may have been born? Without a birth father who was a legal citizen of the United States at the time of his birth, Barack Hussein Obama, II cannot be a “natural born citizen” of the United States of America, he is not without divided national loyalties, and cannot serve as President of the United States or Commander-in-Chief of the United States Military as a result, creating a national security and a full blown Constitutional crisis.

According to the two autobiographical books by Barack Hussein Obama, II – his birth father is Barack Hussein Obama, a British subject at the time and a legal citizen of Kenya. According to public family history, Barack Hussein Obama was at no time in his life a legal citizen of the United States.

On this basis alone, LTC Lakin is right (and lawful) in refusing to accept orders from an illegal command. The US Constitution and the Law of Nations, upon which our sovereign nation was formed, are very clear on the matter.

As a result, the need for LTC Lakin to gain access to the Hawaiian birth records for Barack Hussein Obama, II is eliminated.

LTC Lakin need only assert the following:

On the basis of Article II – Section I of the US Constitution, supported by Article I – Section VIII – Item X concerning the Law of Nations and the term “natural born citizen,” – I hereby refuse any and all illegal orders issued by the illegal Commander-in-Chief of the United States Military, President Barack Hussein Obama, on the basis that he does not meet Constitutional requirements for the office he currently holds and must further hereby demand that he be removed from office and immediately relieved of Command of the United States Military. I further assert that due to the illegal status of existing Military high Command that this Court Martial has no authority under which to proceed.

Under this assertion, there is no need for access to the birth records of Barack Hussein Obama, II, unless Mr. Obama chooses to respond by stating that Barack Hussein Obama is not his real birth father, in which case Mr. Obama is admitting to fraud during his pursuit of the Oval Office.
In the event that the UCMJ chooses to challenge the historically accurate definition of the term “natural born citizen” described herein, the US Supreme Court is the only court in the land with proper authority to rule on the true meaning of the term “natural born citizen” – as stated by the Constitutional protections that LTC Lakin has sworn a lifetime to protect and defend.

With this assertion is place, LTC Lakin does not have to prove that his assertions are true and accurate. As Commander-in-Chief, Barack Hussein Obama must prove that Lakin’s assertion is false in order to proceed with the government prosecution of LTC Lakin on the grounds that he has “unlawfully” refused orders.

In short, Mr. Obama must prove that his orders are in fact “lawful.” If Obama is either unable or unwilling to do so, then LTC Lakin is in fact NOT GUILTY of “unlawfully” refusing orders.

This particular case is not about one soldier refusing deployment orders. It is about a nation allowing a precedent to stand which makes it possible for any individual with any foreign allegiance to hold the highest office in this land, with no obligation whatsoever to demonstrate or prove national loyalties before holding the office of President of the United States and Commander-in-Chief.

This case is about whether or not the US Constitution stands as the official Law of this land.

NOTE: Past challenges on the term “natural born citizen” have been improperly argued upon cases revolving around the Fourteenth Amendment. The Fourteenth Amendment relates to “immigration” and “naturalization” laws, not “natural law” used to establish “natural born citizenship” status of an individual. Therefore, any and all cases pertaining to Fourteenth Amendment arguments are moot on the matter of “natural born citizen” claims.

Thank You, President Bush
Joan Swirsky
January 8, 2009

As I type this article, I think of the figurative-millions of both mundane and serious things I’ve done over the past seven-and-a-half years with absolute confidence in America’s safety. That confidence was inspired by the steadfast leadership and unblinking courage of President George W. Bush, as he faced our country’s most deadly enemies and succeeded in preventing another ghastly attack on American soil after September 11th.

I know, I know. Let me count the ways that Republicans and conservatives have railed against our 43rd president’s deficit spending, his refusal to pardon the American border-guard heroes Ignacio Ramos and Jose Compean, his “going socialist” with multiple bailouts, and his departure from any other number of bedrock conservative principles.

And let’s not forget the hysterical leftwing-media and their minions who did everything in their power to undermine the president – during wartime –by writing revisionist-history books and articles, compromising national intelligence (and therefore security), waging bogus lawsuits, and engaging non-stop in their typically childish temper tantrums.

Yet in spite of all their sound and fury, President Bush kept a steady course, delivering on his promise to keep America safe

“All this time,” writes law professor Thane Rosenbaum in the Wall St. Journal, “Americans have been safe from suicide bombers, biological warfare and collapsing skyscrapers, while the rest of the world has been on red alert.”

Yes, by transforming the intelligence services and other institutions charged with our security and preparing the United States military to meet the challenges of the 21st century, the president allowed all of his critics to be secure in their own homes.

If he had done nothing else, that would have been more than enough for me. Because without safety, a country – just like a family, just like a patient in a hospital – is as good as dead. Today, over 300-million Americans can thank President Bush for keeping them safe while they, themselves, enjoyed seven-and-a-half years of doing a figurative-million things without worrying about the next terrorist attack on our shores.

How did he do it? In the face of savage pummeling, plunging poll numbers, a treacherous Fifth Column, and worldwide threats from not one but multiple terrorist regimes – all intent on “humbling” big bad America – he let our enemies know that any threat to our safety would be met with a draconian response.

Did he promise to bomb Mecca and Medina, unleash our nuclear weapons on threatening nuclear countries like North Korea, or tell Iran’s madman and his puppet thugs in Hamas and Hezbollah that he would defend a democratic Israel come hell or high water? We’ll never know the answers to the first two questions, but the president has been the best friend that our staunch ally in the Middle East ever had, even while the Arabists in the Pentagon and the State Department tried mightily to undermine his support of Israel.

Thank you, President Bush, for keeping all of us safe!

Speak Softly...Carry a Big Stick
Just how did President Bush go about striking fear into the hearts of our Islamic-fascist enemies? He never used – as they routinely do – menacing language or outright threats. Not once did he lose his temper or pound his bully pulpit. He tried on multiple occasions to appeal to their “sensitivities” and “humanity,” but clearly these qualities were non-existent.

What did he say that so clearly resonated in the ossified hearts of those who celebrated 9/11 by dancing in the streets and who gleefully held up as gruesome trophies the heads of Americans they had cut off at the neck?

When President Bush said, “bring it on,” our enemies believed him! They watched:

▪ Our Commander-in-Chief topples the murderous tyrant, Saddam Hussein, and frees 25-million people to vote – for the first time in their lives – in free elections.

▪ America’s heroic fighting forces topple the tyrannical Taliban and allow 25-million people in Afghanistan to vote – for the first time in their lives – in free elections.

▪ Their fellow terrorists bomb Bali, Spain, Jerusalem, Tel Aviv, London, Madrid, Glasgow Denmark, Istanbul, Algeria, India, the list goes on – but not dare bomb America!

▪ The Patriot Act being enacted in 2001 by an overwhelming majority in Congress, and they knew that its conditions – allowing law-enforcement agencies to monitor communications of suspected terrorists within the U.S. – would severely compromise their nefarious plots.

▪ Our president defying the “opinions” of the so-called experts and armchair generals who urged him to hoist the white flag of surrender in Iraq, but instead sanctioning the Surge which effectively won the war!

▪ The typically anti-American citizens of France, Germany and Italy – having seen non-stop anti-Bush coverage for the better part of a decade – vote for conservative, America-admiring leaders and ardent supporters of President Bush.

▪ The powerful liberal media try to destroy the president, while he turned a deaf ear to their incessant blather, and instead focused his laser-like attention on defending our country.

▪ And waited as the “lame duck” president exhibited as much energy and determination to defend our country in his waning days in office as he had on September 11, 2001.

▪ Our Islamic-fascist enemies within and outside of our country – both jealous of and reviling the American way of life – prove to be the cowards they really are, literally scared to death to mess with our take-no-prisoners president.

Thank you, President Bush, for your belief in the power of freedom, for your undying support of our troops, and for always putting the interests of America light years ahead of fickle polls and feckless critics.

The Left's Myths v. Hard Reality
The president’s enemies on the left have always been fueled by unquenchable envy at his power, which they lust for above all other things – even national security! Spurred on by irrational hate-based emotion – their signature attribute – they entertain the utopian dreams of pre-adolescent children everywhere, who want peace and love and everyone getting along.

Aided and abetted by a leftist media and their bosses – most of them holdovers from the angry “peace and love” 1960s – they rely on a largely uninformed public that prefers glitzy images to historical facts, as well as corrupt organizations like ACORN, which is being investigated in several states and has been indicted in many others for voter fraud.

As the president’s former advisor, Ed Gillespie, has written, the myths the left subscribes to can be exploded by simple – pardon the word – facts!

Did the president’s “go it alone” policy, as the left erroneously insists, ruin America’s standing in the world? Not even close! In fact, the U.S. acted with a multilateral coalition of nations to remove Saddam Hussein from power; had approximately 40 countries supporting us in Afghanistan as well as every NATO ally; was joined by more than 90 nations in sharing terrorist-network information; and succeeded in expanding NATO membership, strengthening ties to China, Japan, South Korea, India, Georgia, Ukraine, Kosovo, Brazil, Mexico and Central America.

“When the President took office, America had trade agreements with only three countries, versus 14 today,” Gillespie says, “with three additional agreements awaiting Congressional approval.”

Did the president’s tax cuts benefit only the wealthy, at the cost of investment in healthcare, education, and the (bogus) issue of global warming? (I added the “bogus”).The Bush tax cuts, Gillespie adds:

▪ Afforded our country its longest run – ever – of uninterrupted job growth, 52 straight months.

▪ The creation of 8.3 million jobs.

▪ Six consecutive years of economic growth [when] real Gross Domestic Product (GDP) grew by more than 17 percent, a gain of nearly 2.1 trillion dollars.

This is no small feat, given that President Bush inherited a recession from his predecessor and that, according to a study by the International Monetary Fund, “9/11 cost the U.S. economy about $75 billion in lost GDP — not counting property losses of well over $100 billion. The U.S. also incurred future yearly costs of roughly 0.75 percent of GDP to pay for greater security, another big hit.”

Keith Marsden, former adviser at the World Bank and a senior economist in the International Labor Organization, writes further of the president’s extraordinary economic record, saying that in comparison to other advanced economies over the past eight years:

▪ U.S. output expanded faster since 2000 than did most advanced economies.

▪ The average per-capita consumption of the U.S. population…was second only to Luxembourg's.

▪ 84.7% of the population was covered by health insurance in 2007, an increase of 3.6 million people over 2006.

▪ Life expectancy rose to 78 years in 2006.

▪ The U.S. employment rate…has remained high by international standards.

▪ The unemployment rate averaged 4.7% from 2001-2007, in comparison with a 5.2% average rate during the Clinton years.

▪ The cost of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan has been largely absorbed in a relatively small increase in the defense budget (to 4.1 percent of GDP in 2006 from 3.8 percent in 1995). A much higher proportion of U.S. income was devoted to the military during World War II and the Korean War.

All this in spite of the fact that the immigrant population of the U.S. grew by nearly 10 million from 1995 to 2005, reaching a total of 38.5 million, according to the World Bank.

Is the president and his administration’s deregulation policy responsible for our current economic crisis? Sorry, but it was the president himself who, way back in 2001, warned in his first budget that the size of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac were a "potential problem" that "could cause strong repercussions in financial markets, affecting federally insured entities and economic activity." In early 2003, he warned that F&F posed a “systemic risk” and called for a new regulator of these corrupt entities. In the fall of 2003, he called for a new federal agency to monitor F&F, and in 2005, Alan Greenspan, Chairman of the Federal Reserve – under Reagan, Bush I, Clinton, and Bush II (until January 2006) – also issued a stern warning about F&F.

Columnist Wesley Pruden reminds us that, “Sen. Charles Schumer, a Democrat of New York, and Rep. Barney Frank, a Democrat of Massachusetts, did more than any other 10 men to insulate Fannie Mae from nosy regulators and effective federal supervision. Fannie and her senior executives…grew rich on taxpayer largesse while blowing on the kindling of the fire that melted the subprime housing market.”

Pruden left out Democrats Chris Dodd, Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid and legions of others who, like Schumer and Frank, consistently rejected the president’s calls for oversight and accountability. And look what’s happened since they took power in 2006!

▪ Consumer confidence has plummeted.

▪ Gasoline prices have gone up and then down and are now escalating again.

▪ Unemployment has increased dramatically.

▪ Home equity has dropped by multi-trillions of dollars, and millions of homes in foreclosure.

▪ The Dow has plunged precipitously, with Americans losing trillions in their stocks, bonds, and Mutual Funds investment portfolios.

Thank you, President Bush, for the six years in which you presided over our booming economy and low unemployment rate, and for your continued support of free markets and entrepreneurism.

*** The No Child Left Behind Act – your brainchild, Mr. President – championed the first-time-ever accountability for both teachers and students by empirically measuring the skills of the former and the test results of the latter. This resulted in fourth-grade students achieving their highest reading and math scores on record, eighth-grade students achieving their highest math scores on record, and also a halving of the achievement gap between black and white students. And let’s not forget that under your watch, Mr. President, federal spending on education increased by nearly 40 percent and Pell Grant funding – to help more than 5.5-million students attend college –nearly doubled.

Your interest and in and concern for young people was also demonstrated, Mr. President, by some cold hard statistics. During your tenure, teenage drug use declined by 25 percent, and the abortion rate was at its lowest since 1974.

***Presciently, Mr. President, you proposed a plan to “fix” the Social Security system, which you knew was due to go bankrupt by 2017, just eight years from now. The opposition, predictably, didn’t like your plan. But you knew, as radio co-hosts Perry Atkinson and Bob Just have described, that “the Ponzi scheme known as Social Security [is simply] a government “slush fund.”

Again addressing the concerns of our aging population, Mr. President, you initiated the market-based Medicare Prescription Drug Benefit program, affording over 40-million Americans better access to prescription drugs and a savings (over the next five years) of approximately $240 billion. That is not to omit that your children’s S-CHIP health insurance program resulted in a decrease of 800,000 uninsured children from 2001 to 2007.

***The Patriot Act – under your watch, Mr. President – finally allowed the FBI and CIA to share information and wiretap terrorists’ phone calls, both forbidden by the politically-correct sages of the former administration. Thanks to this Act – and with the help of our military – nearly 5,000 terrorist plots have been thwarted (many which targeted our country) and untold numbers of America’s enemies have been arrested, imprisoned, or deported, and worldwide terror attacks have decreased by 40 percent since 2001.

***Compassionately, Mr. President, you addressed the problem of homelessness more aggressively than did any of your predecessors by initiating the “Housing First” program. As a result, there has been a 30-percent decline in chronically homeless people; their numbers declining from 176,000 to 12,400 people, according to one quite-persuasive census.

***Again, compassionately, Mr. President, you were solely responsible for initiating the most magnanimous HIV/AIDS (and malaria and tuberculosis) treatment program in history for the African continent. In 2003, only 50,000 Africans were taking antiretroviral drugs, but today that number has reached 1.3 million! As PajamasMedia.com reports, ”The President created the $30-billion Emergency Plan for Aids Relief, and extended it this year with $48 billion to train 140,000 healthcare workers who specialize in HIV prevention and treatment. The rock star and activist Bob Geldorf openly acknowledged that the president `has done more than any other president’ for Africa.” Not incidentally, trade with Africa has doubled during President Bush's tenure

But your keen interest in human health didn’t stop in Africa, Mr. President. In our country, you increased the budget for the National Institutes of Health by 38 percent – from $17.1 billion to $23.7 billion, and you increased funding for t\he National Science Foundation budget from $4.4 billion in 2001 to $6.0 billion in 2008.

***To protect the sanctity of the United States Constitution, Mr. President, you appointed the esteemed jurists John Roberts and Samuel Alito to the Supreme Court, both of them intellectual scholars who will continue – I trust – to uphold their oaths to “defend and protect” this most cherished document of our Founding Fathers.

***Protecting our environment did not escape your attention, Mr. President. During your terms in office, air pollution decreased dramatically, both wind and solar energy production nearly doubled, and nearly $18 billion was devoted to the research and development of alternative energy technologies. And all credit, Mr. President, for protecting more than 27-million acres of Federal forest and grasslands and wetlands.

Thank you, President Bush, for your prescience, compassion and wisdom in addressing the most urgent issues in America and around the world.

Character, Decency, Moral Clarity & Class
Jim Towey, president of Saint Vincent College in PA and the president’s director of the White House Office of Faith-Based and Community Initiatives from 2002-2006, writes that in spite of the calumny the president has endured, he “kept his head up and soldiered on. He took the criticism in stride… reading a daily devotional …signing letters to the families of the fallen”…”

Towey continues: “Mother Teresa was asked at the end of her life whether she was discouraged because after decades of caring for the dying and destitute in Calcutta little seemed to have changed. She replied, `No. God doesn't call me to be successful. God calls me to be faithful.’ George W. Bush was faithful. He had a charge to keep and he kept it.”

It is now known, as Towey mentions, that for many years, President Bush and First Lady Laura Bush privately visited thousands of injured veterans, and met, again privately, with many hundreds of families whose relatives had been lost in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Why did this information emerge only in the waning days of the Bush presidency? Because like all of the facts cited above of the president’s extraordinary accomplishments, the virulent leftwing media – the public’s main source of information – purposefully withheld this information because members of the Fourth Estate take their goose-stepping marching orders from the leftist honchos who still believe – empirical evidence to the contrary - that big bad America is the root cause of the world’s problems. Good news about America is anathema to them, and anyone with President Bush’s unabashed love for our country and moral clarity is especially loathsome.

Writer Arnold Ahlert says that, “Unfortunately, recognizing the difference between good and evil has become Western culture’s greatest liability. Nowadays it has become necessary to bring the `reasoning’ of moral relativity, multiculturalism, and non-judgmentalism to every equation. The result? Moral paralysis Virtually every American politician in both parties talked about the necessity of removing Saddam Hussein. George W. Bush did it! Why? Because he dared to defy the moral paralysis that deems talking about wrongness – as opposed to acting against it – is sufficient.”

When the president addressed the Israeli Parliament (the Knesset) in June on the occasion of Israel’s 60th anniversary, he recalled how 11 minutes after Israel was declared a state, America – on the order of President Harry Truman – was the first nation to recognize Israel's independence.

“What Bush didn't say,” writes political science professor and author Paul Kengor, “was that not only was America alone then, but so was its president – who recognized Israel in defiance of his staff, from Secretary of State George Marshall to Secretary of Defense James Forrestal…”

Of course, the American public never learned about this speech because the media cannot tolerate the similarities between Truman and Bush, or the distinct possibility that their bĂȘte noire will achieve the same exalted status and sterling legacy as the man from Independence has.

“History will say that we misunderestimated George W. Bush,” writes Andrew Roberts. “I am writing, of course, about Harry S Truman, generally regarded today as one of the greatest of all the 43 presidents, and the man who set the United States on the course that ended decades later in the defeat of Communism. If the West wins the modern counterpart of that struggle, the War Against Terror, historians will look back in amazement at the present unpopularity of George W Bush, and marvel at it quite as much as we now marvel at the 67 per cent disapproval rates for Truman throughout 1952.”

Commenting on the president’s “internal fortitude” and “equanimity,” columnist Charles Krauthammer writes: “Bush is much like Truman, who developed the sinews of war for a new era (the Department of Defense, the CIA, the NSA), expanded the powers of the presidency, established a new doctrine for active intervention abroad, and ultimately engaged in a war (Korea) -- also absent an attack on the U.S. -- that proved highly unpopular. So unpopular that Truman left office disparaged and highly out of favor. History has revised that verdict. I have little doubt that Bush will be the subject of a similar reconsideration.”

Throughout the Bush presidency, Americans have seen a man with unfailing modesty, character, decency, moral clarity and class. He was as consistently gracious to his critics as they were consistently rude and rabid. He never wavered in distinguishing good from evil and freedom from tyranny, or, as he explained in his second inaugural, “the moral choice between oppression, which is always wrong, and freedom, which is eternally right.”

On January 1, 2009, President Bush, speaking from his ranch in Texas, said: “As my time in office comes to a close, I thank the American people for trusting me with the honor of serving our great country. It has been a tremendous privilege…”

Thank you, President Bush!
