U.S. Supreme Court Clerk: Letters to Justices have been “thrown away”

“SO AS NOT TO INFLUENCE THE COURT”

August 19, 2010

Dear Editor:

U.S. Supreme Court Associate Justice Antonin Scalia was appointed by President Ronald Reagan in 1986. He was the valedictorian of his graduating class from Georgetown University.

The following letter was sent to Supreme Court Associate Justice Antonin Scalia on July 8, 2010.

Although I had written my Congressional delegation, the Republican (so called) “leadership” and every member of the Supreme Court over the last two years concerning Barack Obama/Barry Soetoro not being eligible for the Presidency of the United States, I had failed to get any satisfaction. The person answering the phone at the Supreme Court actually told me that letters were thrown away so as not to “influence the Court”! I thought this rather arrogant as they work for US. I learned, back when I studied Civics in high school some 65 years ago, that the Founding Fathers left the power with the People in this country, or at least they thought they had.

Anyway, on July 8th I thought I’d try Justice Antonin Scalia again, as I have been impressed with him since his appointment to the Court; only this time I sent it certified with a return receipt requested. The Post Office told me that it could take up to three weeks for delivery because of the post-9/11 security measures. After hearing nothing, I phoned the Post Office again yesterday and was informed the letter had been signed for by a “Lucy Johnson” at the Supreme Court on July 13th! but I have yet to get that return receipt. I am chagrined to realize that I will probably not get any reply from this effort either. It hurts to see how far our once great nation has fallen.

As it appears that I will not get a response from Justice Scalia, I have submitted my letter to you for publication. I even wrote to my local paper asking why they fail to cover this issue, but they refused to print the letter and gave me a mumbo-jumbo “run-around” but neglected to tell me to whom I SHOULD address it.

8 July 2010

The Honorable Antonin Scalia,
The United States Supreme Court
1 First St., N.E.
Washington, D.C. 20543
Certified Mail: 7010 0780 0000 9461 8957

Dear Justice Scalia;

I am writing to you (again) in hopes of getting some information.  I have been impressed with you since your appointment by President Reagan to the Supreme Court and your appearances on that “jury show” on PBS with Fred Friendly (?) As the moderator.  You are often referred to as having a fine legal mind.  I am an 80 year old with no legal training but remember well my High School Civics class of some 65 years ago when we were taught that the Constitution required that the President of the United States had to be a natural born citizen, which, among other factors, required that the person had to be born on United States territory and with both parents being U.S. citizens; although one or both could be naturalized.

Mr. Barack Obama fails to meet that standard and yet no one in “government” seems to care! With no responses whatever, I have contacted the members of “my” Congressional delegation (with no results until I “cornered” Frank D. Lucas, “my” Representative after a town hall meeting where he gave me a far-fetched “answer”.  He told me that because “neither McCain nor Clinton contested Obama’s filing [for presidential candidacy] within 72 hours of that filing, it was a moot point”.  When I asked him where that was in the Constitution, his aides whisked him out of the building.), the Chairman of the RNC (where a staffer told me the Chairman would not “embarrass” himself by addressing the issue), the Republican “leadership” of both houses of Congress and every Member of the Supreme Court, except Justice Sotomayor, some more than once.  I realize fully well that legal ethics may preclude your providing me with any answers and I regret that.   Therefore I am asking if you would be so kind as to provide me with a reliable contact who could explain this conundrum to me.

When I donned our country’s uniform some 60 years ago, I also swore an oath to our Nation and Constitution.  As I never revoked that oath, I feel it as valid 24/7 today as it was then.  I consider that I swore the oath, not the “uniform”.  I see nothing in the Constitution that would give the Supreme Court, in toto, original jurisdiction, but does that prevent the individual Justices from defending our Constitution from this assault as individuals?  I have a similar question for all the 535 Members of Congress; but have failed to get a reply from any one of the many I have queried.  I have contacted countless candidates seeking offices across the land and have received but one positive response saying she would take up this issue if elected.

As you are well aware, the First Amendment to the Constitution states, “Congress shall make no law… abridging the right of the people… to petition the Government for a redress of grievances”; yet lawyers such as Mr. Apuzzo, Mr. Berg and Dr. Taitz who represent a multitude of plaintiffs have all had their cases thrown out for the reason the plaintiffs “do not have standing”.  Isn’t this at cross purposes with the right to petition?  Shouldn’t that “petition” at least be heard in entirety?  How does a citizen not have “standing” when the actions by this person and his regime  are having such an adverse effect on our economy, our security and the very survival of our Nation and the Constitution which has served us so well in the Past?

Justice Scalia, I am frustrated, confused and lost.  Granted I flunked out of my first year at Case School of Applied Sciences in Cleveland, Ohio, in my youth; but I later became a licenced commercial, instrument rated pilot with multiple ratings so I do not consider myself stupid and I do not think that senility has yet taken over; so could you please steer me in a direction to an answer as to why our government seems so content to suffer this daily and constant shredding of our Constitution by this imposter and his regime of thugs?  Did our Founding Fathers leave us so at the mercy of someone whose goal is the destruction of all that so many have fought and died for?

I will truly value any information you may give me.  I would greatly appreciate a reply, even if it is only to say that you are unable to be of any assistance.

Thank you kindly, sir.

Sincerely,

Richard H. Irish

    I am clueless about the legal system, but I would think that you could go to any federal court, which I would assume are set up for geographic and distance reasons, too far for everybody to go to Washington, and send information through them for return signature from Supreme Court. Or go to your state attorney general office and ask them to handle a correspondence needing signature. I would think the governor or high state offices could access federal offices in a way that the post office may not. Or a state senator. There is also the local law enforcement in the area of the Supreme Court. Send a package via the Sheriff office, and ask that they get it to the Supreme Court. But since mail is handled for safety, I would think a Federal court in the state could coordinate getting signed receipts.

    It also sounds like a class action suit against the law clerks of the Supreme Court is in order. And a request for all internal e-mails regarding certain lawsuits and the process they have gone through with signatures, as the documents were reviewed and passed hands. Also anybody who sent a letter should join the lawsuit for obstruction of justice by the law clerks of the Supreme Court, and support of felonious behavior.

    We should have teams of volunteer investigators look into the lives and careers of these Supreme Court Clerks until they feel the full pressure of WE THE PEOPLE and resign in shame. Publish their names on the internet and get any and all acquaintances to come forward with details. Wouldn’t be bad to do the same with Eric Holder and Nancy Pelosi and their whole families also. Time to take the gloves off and get angry and serious about what all these jerks are doing to us and our families.

  3. J.Landsdowne   Friday, August 20, 2010 at 7:19 PM

    Considering the MANY factions involved in hiding the truth about O’kenya, I am not surprised that our (so called) Justices do not respond. This is wrong. They are wrong. By them ignoring this colossal Constitutional concern, I find it a sign of cowardice & treason. Very disheartening.

    I went to a local townhall meeting recently, this meeting was held in a fairly conservative area & there were many seniors in the crowd. Just about everyone who had a chance to speak, talked about how “good it was” during the Bush years and that the Republicans did a better job than the current administration & Dems. Only one woman stood up & said she recently read an article on the internet about the “ruling class” controlling this country & changing everything, she said it scared her. She asked our Congressman if he knew anything about this, he said he didn’t (next question please…). We live amongst sheeple who only believe there are 2 parties, Republican & Democrat and if they hear/see it on CNN or FOX, it ain’t real. Last year’s townhall meeting people were pissed – mostly about Obamacare. There were signs, pro & con OBama and there was a larger turn out. This time, no signs, quiet group, mostly old people wringing their hands about healthcare & theri retirement funds. Lots of police though (incase any grannies were gonna go postal). If we want our elected officials, including the Justices to respond to our questions (about the usurper’s eligibility) then the American people must descend on them like a TSUNAMI!

  4. A pen   Friday, August 20, 2010 at 6:14 PM

    Does anyone at the address of the court read any mail? Maybe one of the clerks might inform the justices they are being treated like mushrooms. You know, kept in the dark and fed crap.

  5. jan   Friday, August 20, 2010 at 12:27 PM

    Thank you Mr. Irish for your fine letter. I also wrote via certified, registered mail and did not receive a reply or the green card either. I wrote at the time that Leo Donofrio’s eligibility case was before the SCOTUS to decide if they would take the case (early December 2008). It was my understanding that four justices would have to agree to hear the case and since they wouldn’t hear it, that means there were three or less Justices who would agree to hear it. They are a big disappointment and in my opinion, complicit in this crime as well. At that time, the only explanation that seemed plausible is that they feared race riots since BO’s political capitol was so high right after the election.
    However, that said, perseverance is always the solution to problems.
    We must “keep on keeping on”!

  6. Tom the veteran   Friday, August 20, 2010 at 10:21 AM

    Just as the original intent of our Founding Fathers has been turned on its head, so has the separation of powers! The three branches of government are no longer checks and balances on one another, but have melded into one dictatorial form of government where We the People no longer fit into the equation of what we want our government to provide for us! The government now believes that there nothing outside their jurisdiction! Cradle to grave! Womb to tomb!

  7. Brigitte de Maubec   Friday, August 20, 2010 at 9:38 AM

    Scotus does not want to hear the issue, because they know we are right. Plain and simple. They know what is a natural born citizen and they know that O is not one.

    Reading these comments I must say I had no idea that so many people had written the Justices. Throwing away a letter is one thing, but throwing away a bunch of registered letters is another. It does not bode well for the future of that recourse.

    The clerks have to be very secure in their belief the issue will never see the light of day to behave so fraudulently.

    The power and solution rest squarely on the shoulders of the People. There is no help to expect from our institutions. They are corrupted to the core.

    We can only continue to do what we have done. Educate our families, our neighbors on the issue and prepare for a bleak but probably cleansing future.

    Remember the revolution was fought by only 20% of the American settlers.

    I took this matter up with all (9) Justices by writing a letter to each respective Justice and addressing the individually addressed envelopes, to same.I then inserted all nine letters into one envelope and addressed that one envelope to the Clerk of the Court. I sent the documents by Certified US Mail,Return Receipt Requested. I received the receipt a few days later.

    In those envelopes were “Presentments” of the American Grand Jury. The nine SCOTUS Justices have been legally served,according to law. Throwing away these envelopes would amout to obstruction of due process.
    In light of the ruling in Marbury v. Madison,SCOTUS,(1803),in that any law,rule or policy that is repugnant to the Constitution is null and void,the continued acceptance by congress and the judiciary of a POTUS who is constitutionally disqualified is patently illegal.
    ———————
    Mrs. Rondeau replies: I had mailed something to one of the Supreme Court justices many months ago by certified mail and never received the green card back at all.

    Those SCOTUS Justices,like Thomas who admitted to congress that SCOTUS is evading this issue,are therefore misprisioners of treason and fraud and are subject to impeachment themselves.

    Maybe it is time we deliver our letters to the justices in person. Say about a million of us all on the same day (or two). Your own letters plus 20 or 30 from friends and relatives – hmmm, that would be a lot of letters on their desk. Let’s see those arrogant pee-on clerks confiscate that much mail, and let’s see them try to stop that many people.

    Congress doesn’t care. Obama doesn’t care. It’s time to see if the courts care. Let’s hope they do because that is all we have left. But letters aren’t going to get the job done.

  14. Betty Merry   Friday, August 20, 2010 at 12:38 AM

    The republicans are just as guilty as the demoncrats. That is why neither party will ever approach the subject of O’s eligibility. The SAD thing is they are both just as CORRUPT as the other….they all KNOW he’s ineligible.
    Our only hope is to vote INDEPENDENT and cast away the republicans and democrats….that is IF the vote means anything anymore in America…Who own’s the voting machines? Who’s counting the votes of the people?

  15. Citizen Concerned   Friday, August 20, 2010 at 12:22 AM

    I recommend future mailings resume in October when the Court reconvenes and that they be sent via registered mail with restricted delivery and returned signature confirmation. Restricted delivery requires the signature of the person it is addressed to or their authorized agent.

    If the USPS fails to deliver it to the person it is addressed to or an authorized agent and fails to obtain a signature and return the signed green card to the sender, it should be taken to court for dereliction of duty if there is such a thing for a civil servants. If a law clerk is an authorized agent, same goes for them if they fail to give it to the Justice it is addressed to.

    Is there any legal code that allows law clerks to screen letters addressed to a specific Justice and determine which ones to forward and which ones not to forward? This just stinks of a civil rights violation under the Equal Protection Clause and the equivalent of racial profiling based on one’s political leanings.
    ——————-
    Mrs. Rondeau replies: Unfortunately, even restricted delivery is no guarantee that the intended recipient will sign for it. I had sent something via certified mail, restricted delivery to my state’s attorney general and it was signed for by someone else. When I received the green card back with the signature, I called the post office to inquire as to why the attorney general’s signature was not there. They said that in state offices, there are certain people designated to sign for special deliveries and there actually can be no guarantee that the intended person will sign. I then asked for a refund of the restricted delivery charge and got it.

  16. Citizen Concerned   Thursday, August 19, 2010 at 11:40 PM

    I am disgusted that the SCOTUS Justices will not take up this issue and settle the NBC interpretation once and for all. I think it is a slam dunk for a least three Justices, Alito and Kennedy are my only question marks in regard to which way they will lean.

    On the other hand, pray nothing happens to Scalia, Thomas, Alito, Roberts, and even Kennedy. God help us if O gets to make another SCOTUS appointment before he is thrown out of office or during his remaining 833 days, whichever comes first. God, that sound like a long time…..

    If he is thrown out on his arse for his unconstitutional usurpation and tried and convicted of treason, does that invalidate the spectacularly stupid appointments he has made so far? I suppose only one could hope and that a real Constitutionalist gets appoint their replacements.

    That was a good idea to try to contact Ms. Thomas. She has a website at Liberty Central where they rattle on about the Constitution but strangely have never ventured into any discussion that I am aware of about Art II. I have left several notes there without any response. I would think that if the outcry and contacts became numerous enough that she would be compelled to respond.

    The Communist coup has us by the short hairs! But so what! We only become sharp when you put us in the fire. We are now today in the fire of lies being tempered daily by their propaganda, plunge yourself in the cool oil of reality and hone yourself on the stone of truth. Then cut off the head of all that is Evil. Only then will we get our country back. We knew this 223 years ago, it’s just time for a refresher course. Are YOU ready to take the final exam? If not we shall all surely fail.

    “Philo-Publius | August 18, 2010 at 2:27 pm |

    American Legal System Is Corrupt Beyond Recognition, Judge Tells Harvard Law School.

    The American legal system has been corrupted almost beyond recognition, Judge Edith Jones of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit, told the Federalist Society of Harvard Law School on February 28.

    She said that the question of what is morally right is routinely sacrificed to what is politically expedient. The change has come because legal philosophy has descended to nihilism.”

    Hi Sharon, I am almost 80 years old and have all the concerns that Mr. Irish does! But I have a question about the “Act of 1871”. As inferred at this site http://www.serendipity.li/jsmill/us_corporation.htm is the Constitution as “We the People” think of it, just a hoax? The Government is certainly acting like it is! Your work is greatly needed!

    Virginia “Ginni” Thomas, wife of Supreme Court Clarence Thomas, is a consultant at the Heritage Foundation and I believe heads her own political action group. How about getting your letter to her and ask that she pass it along to Clarence who could get it into the hands of Scalia? Hey, whatever works!

  28. b fuller   Thursday, August 19, 2010 at 3:28 PM

    Mr. Irish,
    I have had the same frustrations. I have followed the same procedure and received the green card back from the post office with a name that was not the justice that the letter was addressed to. When I called the post office for an explanation, I was told that they accepted the signature of whomever was taking the mail and did not have the time to locate the actual individual. Last summer, I took a trip to DC to be able to say that I actually walked into the justices’ offices and tried to “talk” to someone. The reaction that I got from the office personnel, you would have thought I had leprosy. The arrogance and indifference was the same in each of the four offices that I visited. Being a true Reagan conservative, I didn’t even attempt to talk to one of the four idiot progressive justices. My impression is that the justices may say that they are “conservative” but their staffs, including EVERY clerk that I did meet, are anything but of that ilk. I went home totally disgusted with the whole adventure. I now have a new belief about where we should drop the next nuke. Omaha would be a good site for our new capitol. I have not lost faith in America but I truly believe everyone inside the beltway should be lobotomized and stuck on a very isolated island. Keep the faith. Truth and Liberty will ultimately prevail. November cannot come soon enough. Lock and Load.

  29. Chance   Thursday, August 19, 2010 at 3:24 PM

    Thank you Mr. Irish for a wonderful but sad letter and Post for printing it.

    I too have written to all nine justices and have never received a reply. I also wrote to my AG Blumenthal. All return receipt.

    No replies from justices and one reply from Blumenthal who said he represented someone against a person who contested. It probably was Byzeiwitz the SOS. The SOS won the case b/c the anonymous lacked standing. Anyway some lame excuse. I’ll to re read the letter again to get the exact wording.

    Little did I know at the time, what we were up against. I probably was just laughed at.

    Justice Scalia is my favorite. I watched a program on book tv where he lectures high school students on the history and importance of the Constitution and Federalist Papers. He spoke with reverence, conviction and love. I was very impressed with him.That is when I read the Federalist Papers.

    He must be crying every day now.

    Thank you Justice Scalia for educating our children. I dare say, I hope you are able to continue.

  30. Jim Delaney   Thursday, August 19, 2010 at 3:19 PM

    And you won’t hear from Scalia either. This is a red-hot potato which no one in the political/judicial arena has the courage, leadership, character or integrity to deal with. This unsettling truth does not bode well for a peaceful return to republicanism. If Obama is somehow re-elected by the socialist gimme hoards in 2012, I have scant doubt but that the country will come apart at the seams. And given the deep, irreconcilable ideological divide which already separates us, if we are to restore constitutional governance, liberty and free enterprise, perhaps we should start embracing and preparing for this eventuality rathering than fearing it. Frankly, I no longer believe our dissolution as a united republic of 50 states is properly consigned to the realm of theory. It’s deadly serious business now, and the powers to be know it all too well. In their heroic attempt to prevent the inevitable, they are desperately trying to keep the lid on it for as long as possible. However, their feverishly ignoring the Obama eligibility issue and the ideological/cultural divide will be for naught. And I honestly believe they know it. Am I exaggerating? Nope. Not from my “we the people” vantage point.

    God bless you Richard H. Irish, and thank you for your service (and ongoing service) to our country.

    I recently received this in email and would like to share it with the posters here:

    Evening Prayer

    Someone has said that if Christians really understood the full extent of the power we have available through prayer, we might be speechless.

    Did you know that during WWII there was an adviser to Churchill who organized a group of people who dropped what they were doing everyday at a prescribed hour for one minute to collectively pray for the safety of England , its people and peace?

    There is now a group of people organizing the same thing here in America. If you would like to participate: Every evening at 9:00 PM Eastern Time (8:00 PM Central) (7:00 PM Mountain) (6:00 PM Pacific), stop whatever you are doing and spend one minute praying for the safety of the United States, our troops, our citizens, and for a return to a Godly nation.

    If you know anyone else who would like to participate, please pass this along. Our prayers are the most powerful asset we have. Please forward this to your praying friends.

  32. Marie   Thursday, August 19, 2010 at 2:45 PM

    I wrote them, too. Gee, it’s nice to find out my letters became garbage. Wrong is right, and right is wrong. I’m so tired of this.
