“Bowling For Freedom”

Schedule Revisions

Ed. note
: This update regards the upcoming historic Continental Congress 2009 event to be held in Philadelphia directly across from Independence Hall.  As part of CC 2009, delegates selected by the People from each of the fifty states will convene to discuss the Government’s ongoing violations of the Constitution and strategies the People can employ to peaceably curtail the abuse.  Although these violations have been widely debated for years, it is the Government’s patent refusal to respond to any and all First Amendment Petitions for Redress that now compel the People to justly and actively resist the tyranny.

We strongly encourage our readers to review each of our
latest updates.  At a minimum, please be sure to read our “Summit Call and “Line in the Sand” web articles
which provide a good overview of the constitutional crisis and CC 2009 initiative.


WTP Congress coordinator Fred Smart has provided a resounding example of local activism in support of the Continental Congress 2009 initiative.  This Sunday, in Wheaton, Illinois, Smart has crafted a local Chicago-area event dubbed, “Bowling for Freedom.”

Smart arranged for the banquet room at a local bowling alley to be reserved for the entire afternoon at the Wheaton Bowl, 2031 N. Gary Avenue, in Wheaton, IL (630) 668-4102. The doors will open at 12:30 pm and Bob Schulz’s presentation will begin promptly at 1 pm.

To augment the “Bowling for Freedom” event, Smart also created an engaging Internet blog page which integrates language from previous WTP web updates about the CC 2009 project along with  other elements (graphics, videos, etc.) to bolster the message.  Quoting in part from the “Bowling” blog: 

On Christmas Day 2008 Bob Schulz published this message which said, in part, the following:

The People Draw the Line in the Sand

On this Christmas day, and faced with our daunting cause, we are reminded of scripture. In Paul’s letter to the Romans he wrote:

“….There is no authority except that which God has established. The authorities that exist have been established by God. For rulers are not a terror to good works, but to evil. For he is God’s servant to do you good.

“….For he is God’s minister, an avenger to execute God’s wrath on him who practices evil, so be afraid…for he does not bear the sword in vain. For because of this you also pay taxes, for the authorities are God’s ministers attending continually to this very thing…” Romans 13:1-6

And from Jefferson we have:

"God who gave us life gave us liberty. And can the liberties of a nation be thought secure when we have removed their only firm basis, a conviction in the minds of the people that these liberties are a gift from God? That they are not to be violated but with His wrath? Indeed I tremble for my country when I reflect that God is just, and that His justice cannot sleep forever." (excerpts are inscribed on the walls of the Jefferson Memorial in the nations capital) [Source: Merrill . D. Peterson, ed., Jefferson Writings, (New York: Literary Classics of the United States, Inc., 1984), Vol. IV, p. 289. From Jefferson's Notes on the State of Virginia, Query XVIII, 1781.]

Jefferson wasn’t the only Founder moved by such reasoning. They all knew the evils associated with a reliance on the whims of men, elected or otherwise, for individual Liberties and Freedoms.

Unanimously, in signing the Declaration, they all recognized that individual Liberties are endowed by “Nature’s God” and the “Creator,” and they all relied on the protection of “divine Providence” as they set forth to end Government’s violations of those Liberties, pledging to each other “our Lives, our Fortunes and our sacred Honor.” Click here to access the rest of this update.

On the day before Christmas Bob and his wife, Judy, got in their van to begin a nationwide tour that will bring them in front of concerned citizens all across America. The purpose of this tour is to announce plans for a "Continental Congress" that will represent an historic gathering of individuals who will dedicate themselves to returning our great country back to the foundational roots of our Republic.

Bob Schulz explains his plan for a Continental Congress in Philadelphia among representatives from all of the states to discuss action plans for dealing with violations of the Constitution.

Smart has also arranged for representatives of numerous other Freedom groups to participate in the WTP gathering and distribute word of the event through their various organizations. 

Smart concludes his blog article with this thought, “Bring your kids. Buy them some popcorn and a slice of pizza.  Encourage them to bowl one or two games while we continue to network, share our visions and ideas to save and defend our great country at this very important time in history.” 

Schulz gives a big “hat tip” to Fred for showing everyone how they can quickly score a few “strikes” for Liberty in their little corner of the Republic.

South Bend, IN Meeting Canceled
KC Special Meeting

Due to unforeseen scheduling and travel problems, Bob Schulz has reluctantly been forced to cancel his planned meeting in South Bend, Indiana this coming Sunday night, (January 18th).

Schulz offers his apologies to the WTP supporters in the South Bend area that had arranged for the meeting and to those who had planned to attend.

Please note that additional schedule details continue to updated on the meeting schedule page most every day.  Please check the schedule page for information about meetings in your area. 

This week, Schulz will hold meetings in Salt Lake City (Tuesday), Denver (Wednesday), Kansas City/Lenexa (Thursday), Des Moines (Friday), Minneapolis (Saturday) and Chicago (Sunday).

A special meeting without Bob Schulz has also been arranged in the Kansas City area for this coming Wednesday evening (January 14th) where the CC 2009 initiative will be presented by a panel of qualified local activists.  Schulz will personally speak the following evening (Thursday, Jan. 15th) in Lenexa, KS, a suburb of Kansas City. See the
schedule for updated details.

We urge everyone to bring a friend or two and get to these regional meetings which are building the foundation for the historical Continental Congress 2009 assembly to be held later this winter in Philadelphia.
