U.S. Supreme Court Dockets
Landmark Right to Petition Case
Two days ago, the U.S. Supreme Court docketed two Petitions
for Writ of Certiorari arising from the same decision by the
United States Court of Appeals in the case titled, We The
People v. United States. The Supreme Court will consider
the two Petitions together.
One Petition for Writ of Certiorari, submitted by WTP
Chairman Robert Schulz, was assigned Docket Number 07-681.
The second Petition for Writ of Certiorari, filed by
who is representing the remaining Plaintiffs, was assigned
Docket Number 07-680.

By the end of the year we will know whether the nation's
Highest Court will take upon itself the burden of
considering -- for the first time in the Republic's
history -- the constitutional meaning of the last ten
words of the First Amendment, i.e., the People's Right to
Petition the Government for a Redress of Grievances.
The burden is breathtaking in the scope of its implications.
Our case rests on a virtually irrefutable historical record
establishing the true political purpose behind the
Constitution’s Petition Clause, or what we have come to call
the “Accountability Clause.” The record is so unambiguous
that it leaves no room for its interpretation: If the People
have evidence the Government is violating the Constitution
the People may Petition for Redress of the Grievance, and if
the Government does not respond to the Petition, the People
may retain their money until their Grievances are Redressed.
On the other hand, there is absolutely nothing in American
history or jurisprudence that contradicts the historical
record or our assertions regarding the power of this
Obviously, there is a great deal at stake for both sides in
this controversy -- the People and the Government.
Three and one-half years ago, nearly two thousand Americans
sued the government of the
States for failing to respond to repeated Petitions for
Redress of Grievances that cited numerous constitutional
torts against the People. These Petitions have required
answers to specific questions regarding violations of the
Constitution's War Powers clauses, Money clauses, Privacy
clauses and the Government's enforcement of direct,
un-apportioned taxes upon on the labor of ordinary American
citizens in violation of the Constitution's Tax clauses.
After this week's docketing of the appeal, the Government now
has thirty days to either file a response brief, arguing why
the Court need not hear the case, or inform the Court that
the Government is waiving its right to file a response.
Following either of these two events, the appeal will be
distributed to the nine Justices and scheduled for one of
the Court’s weekly conferences, which could happen by the
end of the year or in January of 2008.
At that conference, the nine Justices will discuss this case
and controversy and vote on whether to hear the appeal.
Should the Court decide to take the case, it will issue a
briefing schedule and will hear oral arguments.
The WTP Foundation extends a warm and most sincere “thank
you” to our friends and supporters who have stood strong for
so many years now in defense of the Constitution and
in reliance upon the Creator and Original Intent.
Over this period we have methodically erected a solid
foundation that will endure time -- an irrefutable
documentary record of repeated, respectful acts of
Petitioning the Executive and Legislative Branches for
Redress of the most serious of constitutional torts.
Our efforts will one day enable those that may come to pass
judgment upon our nation’s future to know that the People
peacefully, and with great love of the Republic and the Rule
of Law, sought justice, protection and the sanction of the
Highest Court in claiming and exercising the unalienable and
constitutionally guaranteed Right of the People to peaceably
hold the Government accountable to the Constitution, all for
the purpose of securing for further enjoyment the Light of
Freedom is so fragile, so easy to slip away. Unfortunately,
it remains in the natural order of things for governments,
and the men that run them, to seek encroachments upon the
Liberty of the People. It is for this reason our
Constitution was created.
all that stands between the People and total tyranny and
despotism is the Constitution. However, the Constitution can
not defend itself. That’s our job. It remains the burden of
each generation to honor and defend it, and in doing so,
pass on to their heirs and assigns the meaning and
significance of the essential values and principles embodied
by our founding documents. All it takes is the negligence or
neglect of one generation to break the “chain of custody”
and Freedom is lost forever.
