Update July 15, 2009: Soldier challenges orders to report to Afghanistan claiming Obama is not legally the President of the United States, here.
A U.S. Army Reserve major from Florida scheduled to report for deployment to Afghanistan within days has had his military orders revoked after arguing he should not be required to serve under a president who has not proven his eligibility for office.
His attorney, Orly Taitz, confirmed to WND the military has rescinded his impending deployment orders.
“We won! We won before we even arrived,” she said with excitement. “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!”
Update Jan. lst, 2009: It is not over yet, two US Supreme Ct. conferences remain, new cases filed, here.

Update Dec. 4th: Atlas Shrugs has a very thorough summary of where this issue stands today.
Off topic I suppose, but maybe not so far off because I have grave doubts about whether an Obama administration would ever even think to begin reforming the Refugee Resettlement program. I will even bet they quickly lift the suspension of the P-3 family reunification program that primarily effects African immigration to the US.
Gates of Vienna yesterday has a very interesting article about the birth certificate controversy with a whole new angle. Read it here. For more detail be sure to follow the link back to Atlas Shrugs—the blog that did the groundbreaking work on the subject.
Then also be sure to listen to the MSNBC commentary on the topic.
The US Supreme Court has scheduled a conference on the issue for Dec. 5th. I gotta say it is really creepy and wierd that the mainstream media isn’t talking about this—the silence is deafening.
And that reminds me. Atlas Shrugs has a post yesterday about Fox News going over to the “dark side,” that as a long-time Fox News viewer I was disheartened to read. But, lo and behold, one day recently I just flipped over to MSNBC and couldn’t believe my ears, they were harder on Obama then Fox has been recently. Maybe it was a one time deal, but it might be worth some revisits to confirm.
