Articles of Freedom: Gearing Up
Dear Patriots and Friends,
Thank you so much for the support you have shown since the last update went out. The donations you have sent, along with the many emails expressing your support and encouragement mean everything to us. We are so grateful for you.
Because of $17,000 of your contributions, we have been able to reduce the Foundation’s remaining debt incurred as part of the historic Continental Congress 2009 initiative to approximately $65,000. (Bob Schulz’s American Express balance is now down to about $10K while the other webcast debt has been reduced to approximately $56K.) Every dollar coming, with the exception of travel and administrative expenses for important meetings and court activities taking place now, is going to the payment of this debt. There is so much to be done now and in the future, that we want to clear the slate!
only exist to do this work because you support us. May
your Creator return to you and your world – amplified
many times over -- all that you give, whether it be time
devoted to the Cause of Liberty,
or otherwise. Again - many, many, thanks.
AIG-TARP Bailouts: U.S. Court of Appeals Hears Schulz Argue the Issues of Standing and the Unconstitutional Bailouts
arguments took place on Thursday, March 11, 2010 at the
Second Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals in Manhattan. A
press release went out to over 1000 talk
show radio programs in America, plus key NYC broadcast
and print media, Facebook, twitter and numerous other
select outlets. The court room was filled with the usual
law clerks, attorneys and others involved with the cases
that were scheduled, but was brightened by the handful
of WTP supporters who came from Pennsylvania, New
Jersey, NY City and Long Island to show their support.
Following the arguments, Bob did an interview with the French version of TIME Magazine, L’Express, and then a broadcast interview with the national organization “We Are Change.”
are also underway to secure the key witnesses who will
play a major role in the case. Through research, WTP
has learned that by far, most other countries around the
world, including Canada, UK, Norway, Sweden, Italy,
Germany and many, many more rely exclusively on
hand-counted paper ballots for their elections. Bob
hopes to include international examples and participants
from Canada and Germany if the right persons can be
identified and agree to participate. WTP has also
connected with an international organization in Sweden
who has compiled information from many countries
pertaining to their approach to recording and counting
votes which will strengthen the case.
IRS – Next Steps
With so much taking place, it is truly unfortunate that this situation comes now. Perhaps that is exactly what was planned. Whatever the case, we are ready to see it through. We are especially grateful for our WTPC members across America and those who participated in CC2009, who continue on with tireless energy and efforts, even as we deal with these issues here. The Creator works in wonderful ways.
notified the IRS that we will be asking the US District
Court to overturn IRS’s revocation of WTPF and WTPC’s
exempt status and the conversion of our Form 990 tax
returns to Form 1120 tax returns. We need to identify an
attorney to represent the organizations, as Bob is not
permitted to do so.
Articles of Freedom: Going Out….and Out…. and Out to America!
Stories are coming back now, from CC2009 Delegates from Maryland and New Hampshire and Iowa, to name a few, from what is taking place when the Articles of Freedom are delivered to elected officials in the states. In some instances, language has been pulled directly from the AOF and is being used as part of pending legislation. The Articles are being read by more and more groups and organizations and awareness is spreading.
Plans are still underway, in states where we have CC2009 Delegates, State Coordinators and/or other enthused volunteers to step up and oversee the event, to meet at the state capitols on April 19 and officially present the Articles to elected officials.
If YOU feel to help, please send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org with the town, state where you live and we will connect you with the contact person there! If there is no one handling the event at this time in your state and you are willing to step up, please let us know! We are hoping every state will have an AOF event that day!
For some, it has made sense to “piggyback” onto other liberty events which were planned in advance of ours, mostly on April 15. While any showing is positive, this is not our ultimate goal
remind that the delivery of the Articles of Freedom in
every state, to elected officials, is part of a
step-by-step PROCESS that has been underway for 15
years, and our united showing on April 19, in every
state, will make an important RECORD for Liberty in
America, with a definite impact and effect.
Upcoming WTP National Events:
(PLEASE NOTE: MANY of the states have events taking place which are the result of great efforts being made by the WTP State Coordinators, CC2009 Delegates and other volunteers there. We have only listed those that are being coordinated with our national office.)
