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
At a minimum, please be sure to read our “Summit
in the Sand” web
which provide a good overview of the
constitutional crisis and CC 2009
Last update, we announced Bob Schulz’s latest CC2009 meeting
schedule to hold 56 additional regional meetings
over the next two months in preparation for the
Continental Congress 2009 assembly starting later
As he did with his previous regional meetings, Schulz is
asking supporters to step forward and help make
arrangements for meeting venues for the locations
detailed on the updated
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 conference rooms.
In 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.
For 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.
In all cases we need a projection screen, a small table for
the LCD projector and a 3-prong extension cord with
a 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.
E-mail Bob (Bob@givemeliberty.org)
the following information for each venue, preferably
in the following format: Local event coordinator:
(name, email address, phone number). Venue: (name of
facility, complete address including zip code, phone
number and website if available).
After February 25, Bob will be available by email. For
emergencies only, Bob will be available on his
cell phone (518-361-8153).
Bob will finalize any paperwork needed to secure a meeting

WTP needs to know how the upcoming Continental Congress can
better serve all of the organizations and
credentialed “sole practitioners” devoted to the
defense of one or more of the provisions of the
Constitution of the United States of America.
Therefore, on March 17 in Austin, Texas, WTP will host a
private, “closed door” conference meeting for all
organizational leaders across the spectrum of
If any organizational leader or influential individual wishes
to attend but is financially strapped, he or she
should contact WTP (asap) by email at
Bob will soon send an invitation to such leaders. While he
has the contact information for some, he does not
want to inadvertently leave anyone off the
invitation list. Therefore, please forward the
personal contact information of any organizational
leader(s) you know to
email@example.com. Please include leader’s
name, organization, complete street address, email
address and phone and fax numbers if available to
you. Please do not phone Bob or the
WTP office with this information – again, emails
Dean Haskins (Patriot, master videographer and musician) has
crafted a stirring 4-minute video promoting the
historic CC 2009 initiative. Everyone should watch
it and help send it along a “viral” journey. Here
is the YouTube link:
We bring your attention again to the work of WTP California
coordinator Nancy Craighill who edited this
10 minute video on YouTube containing edited
highlights of Bob Schulz’s CC2009 January
presentation in San Francisco, California.
In our previous update we featured a link to North
Carolina Patriot Bernard Carman. Bernard prepared a
well edited .mp3 audio recording of Bob’s
presentation in Asheville, NC. It is available for
here.Bernard had copied us on an email he sent to
his family, friends and associates regarding CC 2009
which we published
As a follow-up, we thought that you might
enjoy this independent “Home Town” endorsement of
Bernard’s commitment as a Patriot. The following is
