Mr. Obama: Don’t Miss Next Week’s Chicago Tribune

D.C. National Press Club Event: Dec 8th

Our full-page Open Letter to Mr. Obama will be published in the Chicago Tribune on both Monday, December 1, 2008 and Wednesday, December 3, 2008. It will appear in the main news section. Click here to view a copy of the final ad.

Chicago is Mr. Obama’s hometown. His transition team is operating out of the Kluczynski Federal Building in downtown Chicago. He is known to be a regular reader of the Tribune, Chicago’s principal newspaper, with a daily circulation of over a half-million readers.

The Open Letter to Mr. Obama is a formal Petition for a Redress (Remedy) for the alleged violation of the “natural born citizen” clause of the Constitution of the United States of America.

Mr. Obama is respectfully requested to direct the Hawaiian officials to provide access to his original birth certificate on December 5-7 by our team of forensic scientists, and to provide additional documentary evidence establishing his citizenship status prior to our Washington, D.C. press conference on December 8.

A First Amendment Petition to any official of the Government for Redress of a violation of the Constitution is substantially different from the garden-variety political petitions frequently received by government officials. This Petition demands it be given the highest priority for an expedited review and official Response by Mr. Obama.

As a formal “Notice of a Constitutional Violation,” the Petition naturally includes the People’s inherent Right to an official Response. As a time-sensitive, election related Petition involving the Office of the President, failure to Respond as requested would constitute an egregious breach of the public trust and confirm the certainty of a Constitutional crisis.

For the D.C. press conference the WTP Foundation has reserved the Edward R. Murrow Room at the National Press Club from 1-4 pm on Monday, December 8, 2008. We are hopeful that C-SPAN may cover what could be a pivotal, historic event.

The Petition for Redress/Open Letter to Mr. Obama is also expected to have a significant impact on the deliberations of the Electoral College as it proceeds toward selection of the U.S. President as provided for by the Constitution.

Many, many thanks to the many individuals who donated the money needed to cover the costs of publishing the Open Letter and conducting the Washington press conference.

We are now in the process of selecting the forensic scientists who would travel to Hawaii to examine Mr. Obama’s original birth certificate (assuming he responds to the Petition for Redress by directing the Hawaiian officials to provide access to the birth certificate). The budget for this task is currently estimated at $20,000. We need to raise the money quickly. Unfortunately, we are starting from zero and we have but one week before the scientists would need to be in Hawaii.

Abduction Alert adopted by the EU.


The European Union Justice Ministers, meeting yesterday in Brussels, analysed and adopted the conclusions from the simulation exercises organised by France with other member States.

The document, prepared by French Presidency of the EU, invites the member States to set up and develop national systems for alerting the public in cases of criminal abduction of children, according to the tested model, which is based on the experience of the Parisian authorities who have obtained convincing results.

According to the conclusions of the "Abduction Alert," exercises, the member States are once again called upon to describe methods for implementation, allowing the cross-border launching of national operations. For the setting up of and the development of these operations, the member States must draw inspiration from good practice established by the European Commission.

The Portuguese "Abduction Alert" system follows the French model.

In Portugal, according to the Justice Minister, Alberto Costa, the "Abduction Alert" system - following the French example - will be put in place before the end of the year. The Portuguese version of the rapid child abduction alert system provides for close collaboration with the neighbouring Spanish authorities .

If the creation of a European alert sytem had already been a work in progress for European institutions for several years, during the Portuguese Presidency, from January to July 2008, the matter became one of the Portuguese government's priorities, which the French Presidency, with Rachida Dati took forward.

According to the Portuguese minister, Alberto Costa, the Portuguese abduction alert system brings about better collaboration between the Public Minister, the PJ, every sort of media and other instruments of mass communication.

The Portuguese rapid alert system against child kidnapping, whose setting up has been allocated to the Deputy National Director of the PJ, Pedro du Carmo, will be a system which in having internal application, will be compatible with other systems already existing, or to be available, in the EU.

"The McCann couple did a public relations exercise in trying to appropriate an already ongoing initiative. (Of the Parliament.)"

The accusation was made by the deputy, Carlos Coelho, a member of the Christian Democrats group at the European Parliament and party colleague of President Barroso. The Eurodeputy knows what he's talking about, because he was amongst the 54 deputies who had adopted, in committee, the European strategy on the subject of childrens rights, a document approved in January 2008 after several years of work.

(Video of Carlos Coelho, speaking on this subject, is available on the SOS Madeleine McCann web site.)
