U.S. Supreme Court Dockets AIG/TARP Bailout
U.S. Supreme Court has acknowledged placement of
WTP's appeal of its constitutional challenge to the
AIG/TARP bailouts on the Court docket. The Solicitor General
United States has until November 29th to
respond. See the
notice from the Court.
original lawsuit was initiated within days of the
September 2008 Federal Reserve and Treasury taxpayer
funded bailouts of the privately-owned
AIG corporation and numerous other Wall Street financial firms.
The lower courts denied the WTP lawsuit by
incorrectly asserting that plaintiff Schulz lacked
legal standing based on a general judicial
"doctrine" which requires that injuries must be "unique" and
"particularized". In essence, the lower courts
dismissed the constitutional challenge (erroneously)
reasoning that if all citizens are damaged equally,
no citizen has standing.
WTP's Petition for Writ of Certiorari argues that
because the lawsuit is in fact, a
First Amendment Petition for Redress directed to the
Judiciary, the denial of the Writ based on the
judicially-invented "standing doctrine" is an
unconstitutional denial of the First Amendment Right
The Petition also notes that legal authorization to
bring constitutional challenges to the 2008 EESA
bailout legislation is expressly included within the
EESA legislation itself.

Liberty Walk for the Constitution:
58 Towns, 30 States
Patriots from 58 cities and towns in 30 states
participated in the first Liberty Walk for the
Constitution on Sunday, October 24, 2010 at 1pm in
all time zones. Coverage of the events is coming in
and will be posted on the
www.LibertyWalk.us website and is also
showing on individual and group pages on Facebook.
In Glens Falls, New York, the temperature was 41
degrees and it was raining. 50 hearty people joined
Bob for the one mile Walk from City Park to Crandall
Park for a Ceremony to honor America and the
Constitution. The Walk was given a very much
appreciated police escort in front and back. A 2 x
8 foot banner “OBEY THE CONSTITUTION” was held by
young people at the front of the line, followed by
WTPC member Creg Mahoney carrying a large U.S.
flag. Behind Creg were three other walkers holding
the NY State, Betsy Ross and “Don’t Tread on Me”
flags. Some of the Walkers spontaneously sang
patriotic songs along the route where local
residents had put out their flags. It felt GOOD to
be Walking in Honor of our Constitution (and
“singing in the rain”)!
At Crandall Park, a special ceremony was held which
included a “Constitution Message” from Bob. An
unexpected highlight of the Ceremony came when rain
caused Bob to invite the attendees to step into the
park bandshell under cover. Each person was asked to
take one of 50 state flags that had been brought
there to symbolize a return to the Constitution in
all the states, and hold the People of that State in
mind, while “Decrees” were given for America which
ended with “Let Freedom Ring!” and a freedom bell
Two area television stations and several newspapers
were on hand to cover the story.
In other towns
where efforts to contact local media were made, the
response was very positive. Many of the organizers
felt they greatly increased awareness in their
communities about the need to honor and protect the

The organizers resource page on the site provides
all the information needed to plan and promote a
Liberty Walk. The Walk will again include a special
program at the end to Honor the Constitution,
including “Constitution Message #2” by Bob.
We hope you can organize or be part of a Walk near
to your home or community. The Walks will continue
with the hope of millions standing up together
peacefully to show the way for America to get back
Plans include a Freedom Keeper’s Event in
auditoriums across America in January (a walkers
reprieve before February) and then a Liberty Walk in
February, around Washington’s Birthday, in memory of
what took place in Valley Forge at the low point of
the revolution. At that time when they arrived at
what are now some of America’s most sacred and
beautiful grounds, the full brunt of winter was upon
all, with soldiers barefoot, bleeding, starving,
freezing and many had given up hope. It was here
that Washington kneeled and prayed in the thicket,
asking for Assistance and the turning point came.
We need a turning point in America now too and every
person’s decision and action is important at this
No frivolous Christmas gifts here.
