This update regards the
upcoming historic Continental Congress 2009 event
to be held later this year. 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

Today WTP released a new printable color “tri-fold” brochure
focusing on our escalating constitutional crisis and
our call to support the Continental Congress 2009
initiative to achieve the restoration of

CC2009 tri-fold brochure.
The tri-fold is designed to enable supporters and WTP
coordinators to engage in public outreach regarding
CC2009 generally, and to provide advance notice of
specific meetings such as the 56-city meeting tour
started this past weekend by Bob Schulz.
The reverse side of the brochure has space designated for
specific meeting details (time, date, location,
etc.) Supporters should simply print out the
brochure, enter or “tape in” the local meeting
information (we suggest inserting printed text to
keep a “professional” appearance), take it to your
local copy center, and then “hit the streets” for
The tri-fold is just the first in a set comprehensive
communications and technology resources being
deployed in the coming weeks in support of the
WTP will soon be providing WTP Congress coordinators with
additional instructions regarding outreach using the
tri-fold. Supporters should stay creative about
places they might distribute the tri-fold in their
local community. Let’s get America on board with
Meeting Help Needed
We still need significant help arranging for many of
the meeting venues for Bob’s 56-city CC2009 meeting
Key to our success in drawing people to the meetings is our
ability to provide adequate advance public and media
notice, as well as lead time for people to arrange
their personal affairs so they can attend.
Please review Bob’s full
meeting schedule and consider investing a couple of hours to help locate an
appropriate meeting location in your area. Although
we desire help with the entire schedule, your help
is most critically needed right now in arranging
those meetings scheduled during the next two to
This week Bob is in Florida before traveling to
Alabama and Tennessee, then south through Arkansas
and Mississippi before additional Texas meetings.
A few helpful hints:
The venue should be in or near the listed city and
not too distant from a major highway.
Because of the relatively tight schedule,
significant changes to the location or schedule will
be considered, but will likely not be possible.
Venues that worked well on Tour #1 are public
libraries, community rooms, restaurant meeting
rooms, VFW and other banquet halls and hotel
all cases we prefer the attendees be able to sit at
a table (it’s known as “classroom style”). We should
plan for 35 people at weekday meetings and 100
people at weekend meetings. NOTE: There have been
exceptions where our coordinators have managed to
attract hundreds of concerned Americans to their
meeting, in which cases the coordinators had a good
idea of the turnout and prepared accordingly.
weekday meetings the room should be available from
7-10 pm. Some venues may close at 9, in which case
the meeting would need to begin at 6 pm. For weekend
meetings the room should be available from 1-4 pm.
all cases we need a projection screen, a small table
for the LCD projector and a 3-prong extension cord
and power strip. Except in cases where more than 75
people are expected to attend or in venues with poor
acoustics, Bob will not need a microphone.
Potential venues should hold at least 75-100 people
for moderately sized population centers and be near
at least one moderately priced hotel property.
Venues can be located anywhere in the general
suburban vicinity of the target city scheduled.
Bob will finalize any paperwork needed to secure a
