In our article posted here on December 5, 2008, we asked, “What must a free people do, and what is the appropriate next step, if Mr. Obama refuses to respond to our Open Letter and the Supreme Court refuses to hear the Petitions by attorneys Donofrio, Berg and Taitz challenging Obama’s citizenship status?”

A violation of the “natural born citizen” clause of the Constitution by Mr. Obama is so egregious and blatant in its nature that it marks the overt and wholesale abandonment of the Constitution by the Government, making this our “capstone grievance,” capping even the other abusive Constitutional violations this Foundation has sought to correct. 

Since 1995, we have repeatedly and respectfully Petitioned the Government for Redress of its violations. We have established an overwhelming and irrefutable historic record of numerous, continuing violations by the Government and its steadfast refusal to justify its behavior or be held accountable in any way. For instance:

In light of the war powers clauses of the Constitution we have an individual Right to a government that does not apply the armed forces of the United States in hostilities overseas without a declaration of war; the invasion of Iraq was unconstitutional.

In light of the money clauses of the constitution the Federal Reserve System is unconstitutional.

We, the people have not authorized the government to give or lend public money or credit to private corporations for definitively private purposes. The Treasury and Fed bailouts are unconstitutional.

We, the people have not authorized the government to create a North American union that would, for all intents and purposes, erase our northern and southern borders. The development of a North American Union is unconstitutional.

In light of the privacy clauses of the constitution, the USA PATRIOT ACT is unconstitutional,

and the developing police state is unconstitutional.  

In light of the tax clauses of the constitution, the direct, un-apportioned tax on labor is unconstitutional.

In light of the Second Amendment, federal gun control laws are unconstitutional.

In light of the Second Amendment, the absence of well-regulated state militias is unconstitutional.

In light of the “faithfully execute” clause of the Constitution, the President’s failure to faithfully execute the immigration and naturalization laws is unconstitutional.

In light of the “natural born citizen” clause of the Constitution, it is unconstitutional for Mr. Obama to assume the office of President of the United States, no matter the number of people who voted for him.

In light of the spirit and intent of the Constitution, it is unconstitutional for the Government to conduct elections that do not rely on paper ballots that are hand-marked and hand-counted with results announced and posted at each polling place.

In light of the First Amendment, Government officials are obligated to respond to the People’s Petitions for Redress of Grievances/violations of the Constitution.

When a long train of abuses, usurpations and refusals to respond to Petitions for Redress of violations of the Constitution evinces a conspiracy to transition our Constitutional Republic to a pure democracy, or to otherwise strip us of our Liberties and reduce us to serfdom under absolute despotism, it is the right of the People to alter the Government, pro-actively, non-violently and with critical mass.

Since 1995, we have repeatedly and respectfully Petitioned the Government for Redress of these violations of the Constitution. Our Petitions for Redress have been answered only by a conspiracy of silence and repeated injuries. The Government has refused to justify its behavior or be held accountable.

The record is so clear and unambiguous that it leaves no room for questioning it or grasping the full import of its consequences: The servants have taken over the house that our Creator built.

What must a Free People do? What must be deemed the appropriate next step?

[Ed. note: As of Feb. 1, 2009 the original venue in Philadelphia was made unavailable.  A new venue will be announced soon.  Additionally, the CC2009 event schedule has been reset for June/July 2009.  Please note that Bob Schulz will also initiate a second series of regional meetings across the nation which begin in mid-February. Please see our home page at for the latest CC2009 news & details.]



Arrangements are now underway for a National Congress to be held in Philadelphia in February.

The purpose of the Congress is to assemble representatives of the People of every state to discuss and debate not only the litany of violations the Constitution now being endured by the People, but to develop and commit to a practicable course of action to set straight our errant public servants, restore the Rule of Law and reclaim the Blessings of Liberty once more for our Republic and our children.

Here are the highlights as we see them:

1.       Three delegates from each state will assemble to discuss our constitutional problems and to agree on a course of action to cure the problem.

2.       We are asking the people in each State to nominate and then choose up to three individuals to represent the People from their state at the National We The People Congress.

3.       The Delegates will assemble for up to one month, or until they agree on a course of action, whichever occurs first.

4.       The nominees must have a proven passion for the Constitution as authors, scholars, or activists. They should be of established respectable character if not “pillars of the community.”

5.       The nominees must be without felony convictions and preferably be clear of problems with the IRS (we cannot afford to make it easy for people to paint the delegates with any kind of brush, such as “tax-protestors”).

6.       The nominees should be able to cover their expenses associated with the undertaking, either on their own account or with the assistance of the people from their state.

7.       Most importantly, the Delegates must understand that the Delegation’s primary objective will be settling on a course of action to cure the problems we have with our rogue Government. That course of action may well be a written demand of the Government that they respond to each of the several Petitions for Redress of violations of the Constitution, or they (the Delegates), along with hundreds of thousands if not millions of their fellow countrymen back home (who by then will have committed to stand in support of the agreed upon course of action), will withdraw their allegiance and support from the federal Government until their Grievances are Redressed.

8.       We expect the Delegates will assemble in Philadelphia at the Constitution Center across from Independence Hall. See

9.       Stenographers will prepare a digital transcript of the entire event for purposes of the historic record, recording all that is said.

10.   The Delegates from each state will be responsible for populating their State-level Congress web page (see e.g., the MA state page) with daily communications and updates from the National We The People Congress proceedings so the People from their State can be kept abreast as events unfold. Online discussion boards will be also available to facilitate communications for each state.

11.   The entire event will be webcast live from Philadelphia.

12.   Space will be provided in the meeting hall for members of the press, government and public, who will be able to observe the discussions, deliberations and debates, but not participate in or film them. 


Four regional meetings are being considered to promote and answer questions about this new National We The People Congress initiative.

These meetings will be held in January in the North, South, East and West. We are currently evaluating possible locations in Minneapolis, Dallas, Washington DC and San Francisco.


Regarding Mr. Obama’s eligibility, he has steadfastly refused to respond to any of the Petitions requesting he provide documentary evidence about his place of birth or other information needed to conclusively establish his citizenship status. He has ignored our Petition for Redress of the Grievance, published in the Chicago Tribune as an Open Letter. He has hired law firms to fight the lawsuits seeking evidence of his eligibility, rather than simply provide the evidence, strongly suggesting he has no such evidence and as such, is ineligible to hold the Office of President.

The Federal Election Commission, the State officials responsible for placing names of candidates on the ballot, the Democrat National Committee, the Courts, the members of the Electoral College in the 50 states, and members of the United States Congress have all uniformly claimed it is not their responsibility to determine Mr. Obama’s citizenship status, as if they never took the oath of office.  By failing to take up consideration of several citizenship legal challenges, not even the U.S. Supreme Court has dared to ask Obama to prove his citizenship status.

Their collective mantra appears to be, “The voters have spoken and we do not want to overrule the will of the People,” obviously preferring a democracy over a continuation of our constitutional Republic with its strict limitations on governmental power.

Despite the Supreme Court’s refusal to issue a temporary injunction, WTP’s constitutional challenge to the AIG and $700 Billion bailouts continues to progress through the courts. We have filed our Brief with the U.S. Court of Appeals. The Government’s brief is due by January 9th.

Also progressing through the courts is the constitutional challenge to Rep. Ike Skelton’s retaliation against Ray and Elaine Herron for serving him on June 30, 2008 with the Petitions for Redress of seven separate violations of the Constitution. On December 18, 2008, the Herrons filed their response to Skelton’s motion to dismiss.

Regarding WPT’s N-CEL, “National Clean Elections” lawsuit, which is a constitutional challenge to federal elections that do not rely on paper ballots that are hand marked and hand- counted, but instead use computers or machines to count the votes (obviously counted in secret), we are preparing for discovery, having survived a motion to dismiss the NY defendants and NY plaintiffs.
