Why is the Supreme Court failing to uphold the Constitution?

CITIZEN POINTEDLY ASKS THE COURT WHY THEY HAVE ABROGATED THEIR OATHS OF OFFICE

Dear Editor:

The nine members of the U.S. Supreme Court

The following is an open letter to the Supreme Court which has been mailed today:

April 6, 2010

Supreme Court of the United States
US Supreme Court Building
One First Street, NE
Washington, DC 20543

Dear Honorable Chief Justice Roberts:

Forgive my imposition; I know you have many important issues with which to deal. I respect that the responsibilities of your office are great and your time is limited. And yet, I am hopeful that perhaps you could set aside a few minutes to provide me with some wise counsel, counsel that would appear to be available only at your level of understanding and appreciation of the legal system that is central to the American Republic.

In trying to provide some intelligent answers about our system of government to my grandchildren, I have run into several unresolved issues that defy explanation. I have inquired of attorneys, police officials, city officials, county officials, state officials, and even my representative to Congress, but to no avail. I am amazed that so far, no one to whom I have posed these questions seems to have any appropriate answers.

For at least the last 50 of my 73 years, it was my understanding that the Constitution of the United States was the supreme law of the land, yet fairly recent personal observations would seem to indicate otherwise.

Earlier today, while driving on a freeway, I noticed a sign that indicated a fine of $342 would be imposed for violation of the laws governing the carpool lane. I thought to myself, “How curious; here we have laws that, when violated by a normal citizen, are aggressively enforced.”

Expressing my opinion here, we are made aware that almost on a daily basis, members of government violate much more important laws. However, under an internal review process, the offenders are often afforded a special brand of justice, one apparently reserved for members of government. Regardless of the outcome, the published results appear to be suspiciously skewed, a reminder to we the people that there is a difference between justice administered to a common citizen and a member of government. Forgive me here…I am confused. Isn’t it the 14th amendment which guarantees equal justice under the law?

I find it increasingly difficult to understand how members of government can routinely violate our laws and in some cases completely ignore provisions of the Constitution whenever it seems to be politically expedient. In reviewing this matter in more detail, this questionable behavior did not start with the current administrative body, but I will not dwell on those details here.

Examining the way the 111th Congress has conducted affairs of state reveals that something must be wrong, for what accounts for members of our government routinely ignoring the rule of law and openly violating the Constitution?

Dear Justice Roberts, even though I am not educated in the law, the situation seems to indicate to me that we are suffering from a constitutional conflict of gigantic proportions,  a complete meltdown of the basic principles established by the Founding Fathers.

Let us explore the basis of my conclusion:

Somehow, to me, all of these issues are related to the abuses of the Constitution. Just in case you are still with me on this, please permit me to cite a few additional examples. First, here are a few assumptions:

Every level of government swears an oath upon taking office:

“The Senators and Representatives before mentioned, and the Members of the several State Legislatures, and all executive and judicial Officers, both of the United States and of the several States, shall be bound by Oath or Affirmation, to support this Constitution; but no religious Test shall ever be required as a Qualification to any Office or public Trust under the United States.”

The above constitutional specification seems to be very inclusive. But, what exactly does the phrase, “shall be bound by Oath or Affirmation, to support this Constitution,” mean? By whom is compliance of this constitutional requirement governed, supervised and enforced?

As a matter of government archives, the following members of the Supreme Court took their respective oath of office as notated (Justices take two different oaths or a combined one. One oath is regarding the Constitution, and the other has to do with the judicial responsibility.  In some cases, only the Constitutional oath was notated. However, both oaths had been administered).

  • John G. Roberts, Jr.– Took both oaths on September 29, 2005
  • John Paul Stevens – Took both oaths on December 19, 1975
  • Antonin Scalia – Took the Constitutional Oath on September 26, 1986
  • Anthony M. Kennedy – Took both Oaths on February 18, 1988
  • Clarence Thomas – Took the Constitutional Oath on October 18, 1991
  • Ruth Bader Ginsburg – Took the Constitutional Oath on August 10, 1993
  • Stephen G. Breyer – Took both oaths on Wednesday, August 3, 1994
  • Samuel A. Alito, Jr. – Took both oaths on Tuesday, January 31, 2006
  • Sonia Sotomayor – taking both oaths on Saturday, August 8, 2009

The Supreme Court did not have a permanent place to convene until 1932, when Charles Evans Hughes was Chief Justice

Practically speaking, everyone currently serving in government has taken the prescribed oath of office. That being the case, what exactly is meant by the phrase, “I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same” in simple lay person’s language?

Are these simply words?

Are these simply moral and ethical issues?

Is there no force of law behind executing the responsibilities as enumerated in the Oath?

So who exactly is responsible to We The People to insure the Constitution is followed?

Of the three branches of government, who is looking out for the people?

  • Executive branch failed
  • Legislative branch failed
  • Judicial branch – jury still out – deliberating? Out to lunch?

Will you just stand by and permit the country to implode on your watch?

Some immediate questions come to mind:

  1. Precisely how is the Constitution protected, by whom and from what?
  2. Those who routinely violate the Constitution are generally members of Congress. By what stretch of ethics do they take the oath of office and then by what authority proceed to deliberately violate that oath and the Constitution?
  3. Who then is responsible to insure members of government are in compliance with the Constitution?
  4. Exactly what are the consequences that result from violating provisions of the Constitution?

Let us move on to more specific items that have caused me to become conflicted:

  • The 16th amendment has never been properly ratified, yet it appears to have been illegally enacted into law and is vigorously enforced. It has been reported that people have been denied due process in dealing with this issue. A citizen named Benson, charged with criminal conduct, was placed in jail under dubious conditions surrounding the denial of his right to submit evidence to prove his innocence.
  • Congress has delegated the management of the monetary system to a private banking cartel in direct violation of the Constitution.
  • The adoption of the Federal Reserve System by our government was not authorized by the Constitution, yet it has been in place since at least 1913.
  • The Constitution does not authorize issuing paper money as U.S. Government currency, yet Congress authorizes the Federal Reserve to issue paper currency at what appears to be an unrestricted rate.
  • The issue of the natural born Citizen requirement has been ignored as it applies to Mr. Obama’s eligibility.  This is an issue which appears to be critical in that it involves placing our national security and defense in the hands of a subject with unknown credentials, a person with unknown national loyalties. To my way of thinking, the consensus of the people, regardless of how compelling, does not take precedence over Constitutional law.
  • The Constitution clearly does not provide authorization for Congress to mandate issues like health care,  yet Congress continues to consume a large portion of the Congressional law-making resources at public expense. In the end, the entire process may prove to be unconstitutional and end up as just another waste of public funds.
  • Members of Congress routinely violate other provisions of the Constitution. For example, deliberately misconstruing provisions of the interstate commerce clause has been improperly interpreted and seen by members of Congress to empower them to regulate human behavior. This is clearly a violation of the Constitution.
  • Based upon results obtained from public records, the impact of unrestrained financial contributions by lobbying groups appears to be the source of the single largest source of government corruption.
  • Even after the purported basis for the Cap and Trade legislation has proven to be fraudulent, members of Congress continue to attempt to force such legislation. This type of taxation is clearly not authorized by the Constitution.
  • Mr. Obama fired an inspector general improperly in violation of a law he co-authored. So far, no action has been taken against Mr. Obama. Is he above the law? His own? I asked Mr. Holder about the status of this in a letter sent on August 9, 2009 which was never answered. I also copied my congressman and state senators, all totally ignored.

We the people are frequently told that our representatives in government, indeed all three branches, work for us. This includes the Supreme Court as well. But based on my personal experience I have never seen this attitude displayed at any level within the current government.

In fact, we have publicly witnessed multiple occasions where the various branches of government have totally ignored the outrage of the people. They have repeatedly violated the people’s First Amendment rights. This letter may be better received and responded to differently; hopefully in a constructive manner.

The lack of proper recognition of the average citizen’s grievances causes me to raise questions that have led me to the Declaration of Independence. It states, “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. That to secure these rights, governments are instituted among men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed.”

At this point, dear Justices, I see nothing in place today within our government which remotely resembles the above passage. In fact, in my opinion, had things been as they should have been, perhaps Mr. Stack would still be with us today.

Faced with an impossible situation where many of us see we are in danger of being deprived of and denied our unalienable rights and can no longer easily secure our rights of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness, we again turn to the Declaration of Independence, which then states, “That whenever any form of government becomes destructive to these ends, it is the right of the people to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their safety and happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shown that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such government, and to provide new guards for their future security.”

So here we are, dear Justices. I fear many of us loyal citizens are beginning to reach the point described above. We have been patient; we have been persistent.

In return, we have been denied proper access to redress our concerns. We have been denied our First Amendment rights as freedom of the press has been compromised.  Government domination over the television networks has also marginalized our free access to news and information, and we are routinely subjected to propagandized influence biased by both government and foreign interests.

As citizens, we have been subjected to a manner of character assassination, personally delivered by high-ranking members of Congress.  For example, Nancy Pelosi, Speaker of the House, presented in the form of public criticism, ridiculing and vilification, right out of the Saul Alinsky book “Rules for Radicals.”

Homeland Security has issued the following: WASHINGTON – A newly unclassified Department of Homeland Security report warns against the possibility of violence by unnamed “right-wing extremists” concerned about illegal immigration, increasing federal power, restrictions on firearms, abortion and the loss of U.S. sovereignty and singles out returning war veterans as particular threats.

I take exception to this condemnation from people who purportedly work for the citizens of this great nation. Is this indeed the proof that the inmates at Homeland Security are running the asylum? Wouldn’t any reasonable person be concerned about the issues raised in this notice? Is this to be taken as a declaration of war upon any citizen who dissents against the current government policies? Is this Constitutional? Oh, excuse me, dear justices…I must have missed something on this, too.

Isn’t this another attack on everyday concerned citizens? Isn’t this simply a continuation of an earlier effort to vilify anyone seeking to restore the Constitution and the rule of law? Is this part of a preconditioning strategy to brainwash citizens to accept an ever-increasing threat of martial law by a government bent on replacing our free society with socialism?

How much are we citizens expected to endure at the hands of this oppressive government? How many of these abuses to our Constitution are considered reasonable?

It does not seem to get better. Our Tea Party citizens have been described as Nazis; our returning veterans have been classed as possible terrorists; those who staunchly support the Second Amendment have also been branded and vilified as right-wing fringe elements. Those demanding the eligibility issue be resolved are ridiculed. There are many more examples of legitimately concerned citizens being denied rightful recognition of their respective grievances.

Concurrently, along with other quietly-executed administrative activities, clandestine executive orders issued in the dead of night dramatically affect the sovereignty and security of this nation. International agencies are provided excessive access to U.S. interests and immunity from U.S. authority. This has produced a dire set of circumstances, presenting the specter of international police elements potentially exercising controlling authority over American citizens.

The creation of special administrative organizations has provided sweeping new collective authority to the office of the president, a position currently occupied by an individual with unknown credentials and possibly conflicting loyalties. This poses a clear and present danger to the vested interests of this country.

Under the guise of forming protective units against terrorism, Homeland Security has extended its authority to encompass the coordination of local and state police authority. Many see that a danger exists for potentially planned government incursions to violate the Posse Comitatus Act of 1878.

Add to all of the above, we have so many folks out of work, the economy is rapidly failing, the stability of our currency is under attack and the daily revelation of gross government corruption make for a very unstable view of our prospects.

Under these potentially explosive conditions, it is hard to imagine just how much more tolerant our loyal American citizens will remain.

Meanwhile, dear Justices, I still have no answers for my family, but in researching all of these concerns, it appears that things are far worse than I had ever anticipated:

  • In summary, we have three branches of government that all swear oaths to faithfully execute their responsibilities, but don’t.
  • We have three branches of government that take an oath and swear to protect the Constitution, but don’t.
  • We have a case where we the people are ignored and denied due process by a judicial system that also fails to honor its oath of office and to deliver equal justice under the law.

Excuse me, dear Justices, please tell me…am I out of line?

Granted, I know little about the legal status of the above issues, but even as a simple unsophisticated citizen, I find the very existence of these conflicts to be very disturbing. Tell me, your honors, how do you sleep at night?

To attempt to tie all of this together, it appears to me that collectively, as a group of like-minded citizens, we create a government that follows the tenets of the Constitution and the founding documents. As part of this process, we empower our representatives to provide a system of administration by which to guide our daily lives.

We voluntarily agree to obey the reasonable rules and laws created for us by our servants in the government. However, if those empowered to make the laws and maintain the system of justice do not abide by the very same laws, then by what manner of hypocrisy can those to be governed be expected to continue to agree to obey laws of such a corrupt system? What incentive is there to continue to live by laws that pertain only to those who are governed but not to those empowered by the governed?

Given today’s circumstances, it would seem very clear to me that once the question of responsibility to insure compliance to the Constitution was answered, then we could begin ferreting out the violations and the violators and begin to apply the principles of the rule of law.

This would seem to offer a path by which to restore the values and ideas of the original Constitution,  values and concepts that would encourage a stable and vibrant nation with an equally enthusiastic financial and economic outlook, a nation capable of regaining its former glory to again take its rightful position as America, the home of the free, the home of the brave; the leader of the free world.

As I see it, the burden of proof is on Obama to prove his eligibility, not the responsibility of the people to prove he is not eligible. Why have the courts ignored this critical part of the legislative process? This is a matter of law, not politics.

As I see it, the Supreme Court is responsible for resolving this crisis. Every citizen is involved; therefore, the issue of standing has been made.

So, dear Justices, the question begging to be answered is, simply, “When do the members of the Supreme Court do the job for which they are being paid?” If not the Supreme Court, who is in charge of protecting the sanctity of the Constitution?

Sincerely,

Arnie Rosner

    Rod Class brings up the fact the the military flag is in every court room within the United States. It looks just like a regular flag but has a gold fringe around it. We have been under martial law since the Civil War. It has never been lifted. The constitution is suspended.

  2. reasonmclucus   Friday, April 9, 2010 at 1:05 AM

    The courts continue to ignore the fact that if it is subsequently discovered that Barack Obama is not qualified to serve as president and the courts have done nothing about the situation, the courts will be totally discredited as guardians of the Constitution.

    I have the book “The Obama Timeline”….It ended at 100 days into the fake presidents term…time to write an addendum.

  4. Colony14Author   Thursday, April 8, 2010 at 6:18 PM

    Copies of my book, The Obama Timeline, have been sent to each of the nine Justices. It is impossible for anyone to read the book and not question Obama’s eligibility to serve as president. We shall see if the Justices have the courage to rule in accordance with the U.S. Constitution when Kerchner v. Obama reaches the Supreme Court, or the various cases questioning the constitutionality of ObamaCare. If the Court ignores the Constitution in those cases, the United States of America will have effectively ceased to exist.

    Gee…here is something I ran across. Seems to have a nice ring….but taken out of context.

    “it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it”

    But put into context does impart a certain cause of action that might be appropriate. Do you too agree?

    We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that
    they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that
    among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.ó That to
    secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their
    just powers from the consent of the governed, ó That whenever any Form
    of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the
    People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its
    foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to
    them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.

    Everything in this thoughtful letter is accurate and demonstrates clearly the current difficulties in which we as a country find ourselves.

    We can do a great deal to alleviate some of the abuses to which we are subjected by exercising our right to vote for those candidates whom we beleive will represent us not dictate to us.

    The Supreme Court is in a different situation in that it cannot originate legal actions. It is the arbitrator of actions brought before it.

    The problem we have is that our Judicial System has failed at the lower levels, from which actions can be moved to the Supreme Court, because in every case filed to establish Obama’s eligibility, so far, courts have ruled that we, The American People, do not have ’standing’ to raise the issue and the cases are dismissed without ever being heard on the merits.

    If we, The American People, do not have ’standing’ to question Obama and try to uphold the U. S. Constitution, who does?????

    Important:

    Very well-written and heart-felt letter, expressing very clearly and calmly what so many of us feel but have been less able to clearly articulate.

    My fear is what may potentially ensue if this query, echoed in many other places and forms, goes quietly ignored and unanswered…

  8. UP4Liberty   Wednesday, April 7, 2010 at 11:49 PM

    @ KIngskid,
    Thanks for your feedback. I have heard the interview of Rod Class on Patriot’s Heart Radio where he described the exact scenario you referenced. I agree with you that we are living out our lives under a treasonous governance structure. Further, I believe it to be a certainty that the vast majority of Americans – I’d say at least 250 million American citizens – are completely out of touch with this reality. It is quite sad, because it is not really that difficult to educate oneself about these issues. Best of luck to you and thanks again for reaching out – cheers!

    “What if Chief Justice Roberts and all of the Associate Justices were to receive either petitions from 400,000 or more citizens requesting response to Mr. Rosner’s letter or if all Supreme Court Justices were to receive the same letter but co-signed by 400,000 or more citizens requesting response??”

    They would continue to thumb their noses at We the People and continue to ignore us as they have for the past two years; since they are “bought and paid for” by Obama. This is obvious to the most casual observer?!?!?!

  10. M. Menke   Wednesday, April 7, 2010 at 5:42 PM

    Mr. Rosner’s letter is awesome! While I was reading his letter, I had a thought that I’d like to share with you.

    What if Chief Justice Roberts and all of the Associate Justices were to receive either petitions from 400,000 or more citizens requesting response to Mr. Rosner’s letter or if all Supreme Court Justices were to receive the same letter but co-signed by 400,000 or more citizens requesting response??

    My sole point is that I wish to let the Supreme Court Justices know that there are probably millions of citizens whose views precisely match those of Mr. Rosner. Judging by other comments here, that is probably true. I am just not sure of a workable method for informing the general populace or for provoking a response from Justice Roberts or any of the other Justices.

    “Wish Drudge would put it up, but I bet he won’t”.

    The Drudge Report today is not the same place that broke the “stained blue dress” story about Monica and Bill. Nothing about Obama’s ineligibility will be posted on Drudge.

    I think they have had fear put into them.

  12. Bob1943   Wednesday, April 7, 2010 at 4:06 PM

    Interesting, but I’m, not sure what the effect will be. If only one state insist on seeing real proof of Obama’s eligibility, he won’t be running again in 2012. The problem is, leaving a known ineligible president in office until then, especially Obama, can do tremendous damage to America. There is no reason why this issue can’t be used to remove him from office long before 2012.

  13. Peter Courtenay Stephens   Wednesday, April 7, 2010 at 2:59 PM

    The United States is in a Cold Civil War. The government and Congress have been operating outside the Constitution for a very long time. This has given us a government in Anarchy. This anarchy and abrogation of the Constitution means we have a Constitutional Crisis. It is unrecognised as such in the media but, A Constitutional Crisis we have none the less.
    Death to Tyrants.

    To UP4Liberty,

    Legal researcher, Rod Class, et al have tried to do this very thing in the DC Superior Court, which has jurisdiction over the D of C. In his radio archives, Rod details the trail of crumbs that led him to the Superior Court (by someone at the Federal Court, who told Rod that he could not sue the federal “gov’t”, but when he explained he wasn’t suing the government, but suing the USA corporation, the employee said for him to go out a particular door, cross the alley and go to the Superior Court). Rod is still fighting to be heard, but is being played with by the courts. He has a broadcast on talkshoe.com, ID no 48361. BTW, Rod and a few others involved in the same investigation carry with them at all times Letters of Marque and Reprisal because of the danger involved in what they are doing.

    After 100 years or more, depending on when this fraud actually started, the truth is leaking out. What we need to do is what the bought media will not, and that is to publish the truth far and wide. As the momentum builds, people will first be absolutely in shock, then horrified, then mad as hell. There will be so much righteous anger that all the perpetrators had better be prepared. We need to bring back the gallows, along with the bonafide rule of law. I mean, this is treasonous what happened to our country.

  16. HonestAmerican   Wednesday, April 7, 2010 at 12:30 PM

    Nice letter. Heartfelt.
    SCOTUS will do nothing.
    There is no more Rule of Law in the USA.

  17. Kyle   Wednesday, April 7, 2010 at 10:54 AM

    My response to this letter is “wow.” Now will the powers answer, “Let them eat cake”? Or will they take such serious allegations with the proper measure of aplomb and begin to redress the grievances of the citizenry? Who are these people who seem to have no compunction against allowing the nation to devolve into chaos, if not civil disorder? The political class needs to step back from the intoxication of power and begin approaching their office with more sobriety and a sense of civic responsibility. There is no adoration of the masses that will ensue from the oppression that is in their designs; only misery, heartbreak, and broken dreams. The paternalistic politicians in both parties need to begin rethinking their roles in this government from one of social engineers to stewards of the ship of state. The captains too, go down with the ship.

    A general dissolution of the principles and manners will more surely overthrow the liberties of America than the whole force of the common enemy…. While the people are virtuous they cannot be subdued; but once they lose their virtue, they will be ready to surrender their liberties to the first external or internal invader…. If virtue and knowledge are diffused among the people, they will never be enslaved. This will be their great security.
    Samuel Adams

    These courts do nothing but aid in the destruction of both knowlege and virtue. It is part of the same corruption throughout government and it must be put to rest that an oath is a promise that once broken is indeed a “high crime or misdemeanor” . That this act has been left without enforcement so long it is evident that the entire system is guilty of a crime. It is time to clean house, start over and set about repairing the damages done by those who have destroyed the education system. There is a right to free speech but it does not cover teaching sedition at the expense of our nation security.

  19. Kingskid   Wednesday, April 7, 2010 at 10:00 AM

    This is the most powerful statement I have ever read on the mess in this country and in our three branches of government. Thank you so much for articulating the current situation so accurately, Arnie. May it be circulated far and wide to build up awareness and resolve among the people to start throwing all the miscreants out. The Democrat Party is toast, the Republican Party is on a greased downhill slide. We the people need to coalesce around candidates who have the same heart and understanding as Arnie. Maybe it is time for a viable, powerful, constitutional third party. That will mean, however, that those like-minded individuals who are still in the R or D party need to break free from all the doubts and fears about a third party. It also would mean that the various libertarian and constitutional groups will need to muster forces and come together as one. What other choice is there? In order to defeat the usurpation of our constitutional republic, something drastic, something powerful which millions of Americans can get behind in a massive way, needs to be done ASAP. Time is of the essence. It is time for a third party. Indeed, such a party of, by and for the people would likely be relegated to the position of “first” party.

    Such a powerful and descriptive letter of the ills confronting our beloved country today. Even the prescription for some of what ails us is included therein. Surely there is a rallying cry for unity somewhere in this heartfelt letter from a man who has seen his country go down the tubes in his seventy years as a proud American. There are multitudes of Americans who feel the same way as he; we are Tea Partiers, American Patriots, Reclaim America Now, Campaign For Liberty, Smart Girl Politics, Granny Warriors, Patriots for Liberty and so on and so on. We all need to find a way to unite in the same common cause we are fighting for so vehemently. We need to speak with one voice, in unison so that we may be heard above the din of the opposition trying and succeeding in drowning out each one of us alone. United We Stand…Divided We Fall. It is a lesson we all learned as small schoolchildren and it is as true today and it was that day in history class. THEY are united AGAINST us. We MUST unite against them and we MUST win THIS battle, this war, or our BELOVED United States of AMERICA will be no more. There will be no more Shining Beacon on a Hill, no more Bastion of Hope nor Refuge from Oppression, because WE SHALL BE THE OPPRESSED! And there will be NO ONE, NO NATION, NO PEOPLES that can come to our defense. WE ARE THE LAST HOPE OF ALL NATIONS. Can one liar in chief and a couple of worn out nags for leaders of their houses, coupled with shadow czars ACTUALLY BRING DOWN this GREAT country WITHOUT A HELL OF A FIGHT? I SAY NO! I will never lie down in defeat or back down in fear. I have read the handwriting on the wall BEFORE my back was against it. The Battle cry used to be, “The South will rise again.” Well, my friend, It is time to say, “NEITHER THE SOUTH NOR THE NORTH WILL EVER FALL!”

  21. Judy Parsons   Wednesday, April 7, 2010 at 12:02 AM

    This letter needs to be posted on every news and/or political site possible. I have said since the 2008 presidential campaign that Obama’s citizenship is clearly in question. How did he get past the qualification process??? Who is responsible for verifying his birth certificate? How did we let a racist become president of what once was the greatest country in the world? I cry for all of us – and pray that we can stop the madness before it’s too late. It will take all of us shouting loud and clear in the ballot boxes – in all the primaries and all the general elections. Mr. Rosner, I hope you receive a response from Chief Justice Roberts, but I won’t hold my breath. You put in words so eloquently what the majority of us are feeling. I hope someone in our Supreme Court has the integrity to do the job they are paid (very well, I might add) to do. The Constitution was written for a good reason. To destroy it is to destroy this Republic. God help us all.

    If and when you hear from an attorney who is prepared to take this case, sign me on as a taxpayer.

  23. Pajamas   Tuesday, April 6, 2010 at 10:17 PM

    I agree. I’d be willing to donate to do this. How do we get this idea of yours to really go?

    Great letter!

    no right; it imposes no duties; affords no protection; .’ it creates no office; it is in legal contemplation, as inoperative as though it had never been passed.”

    Arnie,

    Awesome letter. I share your sentiments and thank you for expressing so well many Americans’ concern. A congressional act passed in the 1800’s may shed light on our dilemma. It is my understanding of history – because of the aftermath after the Civil War – the United States government was left bankrupt, and needed loans in order to rebuild the nation. The Act of 1871 was passed – and this act created the 10 square mile area surrounding our nation’s capitol as a corporation known as “THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, Inc.” (All Caps). The corporation did indeed have share holders – many of whom were European Central Banking interests – who held the ultimate financial interest in the corporation. It is my belief that this corporate entity exists in its’ corporate form to this day. If I am not mistaken, all of the departments of the US Federal Government are smaller subsidiary corporations of “USA Inc.”.

    The point I am trying to make – and please forgive my lack of legal education if I am incorrect – is that most, if not all, American citizens truly think and live out our lives with the sincere belief that the Constitution reigns supreme over our federal government, but because the federal government is actually a CORPORATION – we are being subject to what is basically CORPORATE LAW – not Natural Law – as our founding fathers intended.

    If there are any lawyers on this blog, can you please let me know if I am on the right path with this line of logic?

    If so, should we not simply file a massive class action lawsuit against the CORPORATION known as “USA, Inc.” in order to initiate a redress of our grievances?

    Maybe we could ask Kerchner to raise money to put the add in the Washington Post. It could be a special donation drive.

  29. GMiller   Tuesday, April 6, 2010 at 8:26 PM

    Mr. Rosner levels a number of very grave charges. Whether or not these charges are true, most should have been heard by courts, but were denied standing or jurisdiction on flimsy grounds, or never filed, outraging the people, leaving the matters unresolved and creating a wider gulf beween the People and the de facto ruling class. This does not bode well for what remains of our “republic.” It would behoove you to act upon these matters, including the infamous case allegedly “lost” by a Supreme Court Clerk, but never reinstated to the docket.

    Not only did the courts not act, but the states and federal legislature and numerous other offices failed, as well.

    Totally absurd. History may judge you very harshly. The people may judge you even more harshly.

    This is such an excellent letter. I think this should be mailed to other places that may put it up like WND, just other places. Think that maybe some justices may actually read those places just occasionally. Wish Drudge would put it up, but I bet he won’t.

    Now I’m leaving to share this link. Glad that you guys have it on here.

  33. mganzi   Tuesday, April 6, 2010 at 5:41 PM

    Suter it is! The same ‘Billy’ Suter who kept Leo Donofrio’s filings in limbo before and right after the 2008 election.

  34. thistle   Tuesday, April 6, 2010 at 3:44 PM

    Great letter!!! He covered all the questions I have had, and then some.

  35. Krist   Tuesday, April 6, 2010 at 3:15 PM

    Wonderful! Thank you!
    However, the US Supreme has a “Clerk” named William Suter. This man intercepts ALL the mail to the Justices. And he keeps certain writs people file so the Justice NEVER read them to see if they can be accepted. I wonder how much money Mr. Suter has accepted to deny some writs and accepts others. Mr. Suter serves as the Chief Justice not John Roberts. AS such Justice has been shut down for about a decade at this highest Court of the Land.
    So again, if you want them to see this message; again you will have to put it in a billboard beside their office. William Suter needs fired and John Roberts needs to act like it is he would is in charge or move aside and let someone who can.

    We need to find a way to reduce this issue to a short, easily understood, rallying cry which will both encourage enlightened candidates, AND SERVE NOTICE TO CURRENT OFFICE HOLDERS THAT WE ARE COMMITTED TO THROWING THEM OUT OF OFFICE, AND WHY.

  37. btw   Tuesday, April 6, 2010 at 2:47 PM

    Sorry for my cynicism but of 2 impossible things
    1) a success of this outstanding open letter,
    2) a success from a widest dissemination of the flyer “To Fellow American Citizen!”
    http://www.thepostemail.com/2010/04/03/faux-first-lady-admits-obama-born-in-kenya/comment-page-2/#comment-7270

    I’m betting more on #2 (remember that Orly Taitz did submit the stuff to the Chief Justice?).

    But maybe (?) a power campaign in direction of #2 will eventually force
    #1???

  38. btw   Tuesday, April 6, 2010 at 2:04 PM

    Dear friends,

    Let me invite you to an analysis in “The ultimate proof of Obama’s Ineligibility to be President Of The United States (POTUS) according to Constitution” (and a related stuff too) made by an old buddy, Common Sense, who despite premature rumors (remember Mark Twain?) about
    OBITUARIES
    http://www.resistnet.com/profiles/blogs/obituary-3?xg_source=activity

    found a way to appeal (address) “To Fellow American Citizen!”:

    Amazing letter. Tells it like it is. Hopefully someone will bring this nation to a
    screeching halt, and will not start it again until all questions are answered
    concerning the eligibility of those in power. Remember “LETS ROLL”
    Thank you Arnie….

  40. Pete   Tuesday, April 6, 2010 at 1:09 PM

    Arnie,

    Great letter. I am absolutely certain that none of them are listening anymore. I already know where the bus stops next, and so do you. I was hoping that I would never witness it in my lifetime. The sadness in my heart for those whom have given so much, given everything, for a document that the government no longer feels compelled to support.

  41. Sallyven   Tuesday, April 6, 2010 at 12:30 PM

    This is a wonderful letter. It needs to be published far and wide.

    Mr. Rosner, you have very eloquently expressed the situation that now faces America.

    As I have said before, we can argue the constitutionality of the various legislation proposed and passed by this administration, but the very legitimacy of our Commander-in-Chief, who has sworn to uphold and defend the Constitution, is arguably the most important issue, as it is the most symbolic of all. The buck stops at the President’s desk. Either his power is granted, and thereby limited, under the Constitution—or he is placed, or places himself, over and above it and the law.

    Presidential eligibility is one of the Constitution’s most straightforward provisions, unlike the more subjective “general welfare” or commerce clauses or the Tenth Amendment, which are the basis of the lawsuits against Obamacare. The framers penned our Constitution in only 4 pages—not 3,000. One can imagine that every single word they included was considered to be of utmost importance.

    If the “will of the people” is considered a “political question”—(even when this “will” is arguably unconstitutional)— a matter that should never be adjudicated by the Supreme Court, then the third branch of government is rendered powerless and the Constitution itself, meaningless. Because, simply put, that is exactly one of the reasons the Supreme Court is appointed—to judge whether actions of the other two branches are in fact Constitutional.

    Supreme Court justices, when they donned their robes, swore to uphold the Constitution, not to rule along predictable ideological lines. There is a prescribed process to be followed when society desires to amend the Constitution. Sixty million votes in a popular election do not overrule eligibility law.

    Our wise founding fathers clearly understood the fickleness of society and created a form of government supported by laws and checks and balances. Simple majority opinion, especially when it is uninformed, uneducated, and purchased with handouts, does not trump the law.

    The outright rejection of our laws results in a loss of liberty and ultimately in tyranny. The only defense is to be bound by the Constitution–not a weakened version, perforated by political correctness, marred by the whims of society, or trampled by a hell-bent “progressive” Congress and ideological President.

  42. jtx   Tuesday, April 6, 2010 at 11:57 AM

    An excellent letter by Mr. Rosner and one that hopefully everyone (including the 9 persons it was directed to) will read.

    I only have one question … who is the Mr. Stack referred to in the letter? (Well, two questions, actually … will SCOTUS take the comments to heart and do their Constitutionally-mandated job???)

  43. live oak   Tuesday, April 6, 2010 at 11:50 AM

    Excellent letter.
    I bet Roberts will ignore you and then have you investigated!!! They won’t do a thing!!!

    As clear and concise an indictment of our current three branches of government as I’ve ever read. Thank you Arnie

  46. RJ   Tuesday, April 6, 2010 at 11:05 AM

    Everything in this thoughtful letter is accurate and demonstrates clearly the current difficulties in which we as a country find ourselves.

    We can do a great deal to alleviate some of the abuses to which we are subjected by exercising our right to vote for those candidates whom we beleive will represent us not dictate to us.

    The Supreme Court is in a different situation in that it cannot originate legal actions. It is the arbitrator of actions brought before it.

    The problem we have is that our Judicial System has failed at the lower levels, from which actions can be moved to the Supreme Court, because in every case filed to establish Obama’s eligibility, so far, courts have ruled that we, The American People, do not have ‘standing’ to raise the issue and the cases are dismissed without ever being heard on the merits.

    If we, The American People, do not have ‘standing’ to question Obama and try to uphold the U. S. Constitution, who does?????
