The noble-sounding but mysterious organization Safeguard Our Constitution has sent out a noble-sounding press release today launching a fund-raising effort for a defense fund for Lt. Col. Terrence Lakin. Evidently Lt. Col. Lakin is having difficulty living with his oath to uphold the Constitution because he claims President Obama has not sufficiently proven that he is a natural-born citizen.
Safeguard Our Constitution claims to be part of the American Patriot Foundation, a non-profit organization established in 2003. Other than the initial return, no other official filings have been made.
From the press release:
"I am today compelled to make the distasteful choice to invite my own court martial, in pursuit of the truth about the president's eligibility under the constitution to hold office", said active duty Army Lt. Col. Terrence Lakin. The American Patriot Foundation, a non-profit group incorporated in 2003 to foster appreciation and respect for the U.S. Constitution, immediately announced it has set up a legal defense fund and will provide Lt. Col. Lakin with a top-flight defense team.
I'm not going to address the birther aspects of this nonsense again. It's nothing more than an effort to de-legitimize the President and keep the ignorant masses stirred in frothy stupors. Nothing I say or show would convince a dedicated birther otherwise, or even an Oath Keeper.
