The Landmark Right to Petition Lawsuit:
We The People v
October 24, 2007, we reported that we had filed the Petition
for Writ of Certiorari to the Supreme Court of the United
States. As had been the case with all of our filings in the
case, both at the District Court and at the Court of
Appeals, our filing was submitted under the signature of
both Mark Lane (attorney for all 1450 Plaintiffs except Bob
Schulz) and Bob Schulz (pro-se). RIGHT-Click here to
Petition and its
We delivered the required forty copies of the Petition,
together with the $300 filing fee, expecting the Court to
assign a Docket Number, and expecting to receive the
Government’s response Brief by the end of November.
Instead, the Court kept one copy of the Petition, and our
check, and returned the other 39 copies. The Court wrote
that under its rules only one name can be on each Petition.
We were informed that we had the choice of either submitting
forty copies of each of two Petitions, one from Mark Lane
and one from Bob Schulz (together with an additional filing
fee), or forty copies of one new Petition from Mark Lane (as
attorney for all Plaintiffs, including Bob Schulz).
November 13, 2007, we filed forty copies of a Petition from Bob Schulz
and forty copies of a Petition from
The two Petitions are identical, except for the cover and
the signature page.
By early next week the Court is expected to assign a Docket
Number to the Petition. The Government will have thirty days
Within a week or two following the Government's response,
and holidays permitting, the Court will decide if it will
hear the case of We The People v United States and
declare, for the first time in history, the Rights of
the People and the obligations of the Government under the
last ten words of the First Amendment.
The “6700” Lawsuit:
United States v.
We The People
October 24, 2007 we reported that the United States Court of
Appeals had granted our requests for a stay of enforcement
pending appeal and an order expediting the appeal from Judge
McAvoy’s August 9 Summary Judgment ruling that our “Blue
Folder” on the subject of wage withholding was not protected
by the First Amendment’s Petition and Speech clauses, and
that the Folder was a prohibited “tax shelter.”
We reported that we had filed our Brief on the merits with
the Second Circuit Court of Appeals, that the Government was
required to file its response on or before November 19, and
that the Court directed that the matter be set to be argued
during the week of December 31.
We expect to receive the Government’s Response Brief early
next week. We will have a week to file our Reply Brief.

The NCEL National Clean Election Lawsuit:
Full-Page Ad in
November 4, 2007, we reported that WTP was spearheading a
lawsuit against all 50 states to block machine and
computerized vote counting in the 2008 primaries and general
election and beyond, and to require paper ballots, hand
marked and hand counted.
The states have been summoned by the United States District
Court for the Northern District of New York to respond to
the Complaint that was filed on November 1 by three
registered voters from each state.
Thus far, three states have responded. As expected, they have
filed motions to dismiss for “lack of jurisdiction.” We
expect other states to do the same.
Before the early 1900’s there were no Political Party
Primaries. Before 2000, the Party Primaries did not begin
before the month of March. By 2004 the Party Primaries were
getting underway in February. This year, in conjunction with
the Political Parties, the states are scheduling the Party
Primaries and Party Caucuses to begin in the first week of
here for the latest calendar of Primaries and
It is common knowledge that unless a candidate for President
of the United States of America finishes among the top three
or four in the early primaries and caucuses, that candidate
will have a very difficult time raising any more money to
pay to get his or her message out to the People in the
remaining states, especially in all of those states that
Primary on “super Tuesday.”
The Political Parties appear to be moving up the dates of the
early Primaries in order to impede the opportunity for early
success by candidates who are not among the Party favorites,
especially any “upstart” with an appealing message whose
campaign is gaining momentum and money.
For this reason, the NCEL Plaintiffs are planning to file a
motion asking the Court to expedite the proceedings and to
delay the presidential Primaries pending resolution of the
critical constitutional issues raised in the lawsuit..
