Our full-page Open
Letter to Mr. Obama will be published in the
Chicago Tribune on both Monday, December 1, 2008
and Wednesday, December 3, 2008. It
will appear in the main news section.

Chicago is Mr. Obama’s hometown. His transition team
is operating out of the
Building in downtown Chicago. He is known to be a
regular reader of the Tribune, Chicago’s
principal newspaper, with a daily circulation of
over a half-million readers.
The Open Letter to Mr. Obama is a formal
Petition for a Redress (Remedy) for the alleged
violation of the “natural born citizen” clause of
the Constitution of the United States of America.
Mr. Obama is respectfully requested to direct the
Hawaiian officials to provide access to his
original birth certificate on December 5-7 by
our team of forensic scientists, and to provide
additional documentary evidence establishing his
citizenship status prior to our Washington, D.C.
press conference on December 8.
A First Amendment Petition to any official
of the Government for Redress of a violation of the
Constitution is substantially different from the
garden-variety political petitions frequently
received by government officials. This Petition
demands it be given the highest priority for an
expedited review and official Response by Mr. Obama.
As a formal “Notice of a Constitutional Violation,”
the Petition naturally includes the People’s
inherent Right to an official Response. As a
time-sensitive, election related Petition involving
the Office of the President, failure to Respond as
requested would constitute an egregious breach of
the public trust and confirm the certainty of a
For the D.C. press conference the WTP
Foundation has reserved the Edward R. Murrow Room at
the National Press Club from 1-4 pm on Monday,
December 8, 2008. We are hopeful that C-SPAN may
cover what could be a pivotal, historic event.
The Petition for Redress/Open Letter to Mr.
Obama is also expected to have a significant impact
on the deliberations of the Electoral College as it
proceeds toward selection of the U.S. President as
provided for by the Constitution.
Many, many thanks to the many individuals
who donated the money needed to cover the costs of
publishing the Open Letter and conducting the
Washington press conference.
We are now in the process of selecting the
forensic scientists who would travel to Hawaii to
examine Mr. Obama’s original birth certificate
(assuming he responds to the Petition for Redress by
directing the Hawaiian officials to provide access
to the birth certificate). The budget for this task
is currently estimated at $20,000. We need to raise
the money quickly. Unfortunately, we are starting
from zero and we have but one week before the
scientists would need to be in Hawaii.
Annual Fund Raiser
2009 Freedom Calendars Now
November is the month when we traditionally
launch our Annual Fund Drive to help the
Foundation meet its project and administrative
costs. We do so again, now, with this Update,
only this year there is a special urgency – the
likelihood that we will need to send two or
three forensic scientists to Hawaii at the end
of next week.
Once again, our year-end
2009 Annual Fund Drive
features the very popular Freedom Calendar
published for us by Daniel Pilla, Sr.
(More details below).
We appeal to our members and supporters to
please respond with much haste and generosity.
Together, we have again succeeded in advancing an
intelligent, rational and professional defense of
our Constitution and Liberty – striking a balance
between civic education and civic action. Next
week, many more Americans will not only learn about
Article II, Section 1, Clause 4 of the Constitution
(the natural born citizen clause), they will also
learn about the provision of the Constitution that
guarantees the People’s Right to hold each and every
government official accountable to the Constitution
– the Right of Redress, embodied in the last ten
words of the First Amendment.
With your continued support we can do so
Now more than ever, WTP needs your support.
Over the past year both our Republic and our
organization have weathered much. Our Government has
escalated its attacks on our beloved Constitution
and We The People has, with the means available,
responded in the defense of Liberty.
We have taken the tyrants to courts of the
Judiciary. We have taken the tyrants to the court of
public opinion. We have laid the groundwork for the
coming battles for Freedom by establishing an
historic record of Government’s steadfast refusal to
abide by our Constitution and its refusal to justify
We have fought and we have stood resolute in the
face of those that would seize our Liberty. And
although the war may not yet have been won, it has,
by the vigilant hand of the Heavens, not yet been
To this day, this organization stands
virtually alone in its unyielding commitment to
confront the despots that aggrieve us, to demand
accountability to the Law, and to secure the vision
of human Rights conferred upon us by our Founders.
As the year draws to a close, WTP remains
the leading, if not only, organization directly
confronting tyranny. Beyond words, We The People
has undertaken a mission of action.
But missions, like wars, consume resources –
many resources, and Righteous wars, if they
are to be won, cannot be waged without them. Our
operation requires professional services such as
Accounting, Information Technology, etc. We also
have significant overhead costs to bear (utilities,
Internet resources, office equipment,
technology/software maintenance, support vendors,
licensing fees, etc. We also incur substantial
direct project expenses whenever we engage a new
battlefront (e.g., legal research database costs,
court filing fees, travel, etc.) or stage a public
Right-to-Petition event (venue costs, video/audio
services, web-casting costs, etc.)
We can only fight with what we have. Our mission
cannot proceed without your support. As we have
shown with our Obama citizenship challenge, with
your commitment, we can accomplish much.
Today We The People renews its call for your
commitment to both our cause and our organization.
Although we cannot guarantee our victory, we can
guarantee those that support us nothing less than
our full devotion to the defense of Liberty.
Please join our cause and help garner the
resources that will enable us to escalate our
resistance against those that would deprive us of
To that end, we make our year-end appeal for
your donations. We are now offering the
Freedom Calendar packages.
As we did last year, the Freedom Calendar donation
packages have been configured to give you, our
supporters -- the heart of our organization, the
means to share our message of defense of the
Constitution and to expose your friends and
neighbors to the WTP organization.
To that end, we have configured the (3)
three donation packages below. Each of the packages
includes the 2009 Freedom Calendar. It contains a
multitude of Liberty related facts and inspirational
messages. Each of the packages also contains the
historic 2008 Congressional Petitions disc submitted
to every member of Congress on June 30th
as well as the WTP 3-color “Give Me Liberty or Die”
Larger donations not only receive multiple
Calendars, they contain enhancements including the
Right-to-Petition Educational Materials disc which
contains copies of the academic research regarding
the Right of Petition as well as copies of the
historic legal briefs. This is a previously
unreleased, professionally produced WTP educational
product. The third donation package also makes
available the WTP C-SPAN DVD disc covering the
historic July 2004 Right-to-Petition lawsuit event
at the National Press Club in Washington. (The
C-SPAN DVD is currently offered alone for a $100
donation on the Foundation’s online store).
Many Thanks in advance for your continued support of
WTP your faith in our shared mission of securing
