For those not familiar with the “National We The People Congress 2009”, it is a Congress comprised of citizens from the 50 states. The upcoming “historic Continental Congress 2009 event was to be held in Philadelphia directly across from Independence Hall. As part of CC 2009, delegates selected by the People from each of the fifty states were to 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.”
See National We The People Congress to be held in Philadelphia, PA in February, 2009 for more information.

The February, 2009 Congress was to be held at the National Constitution Center in Philadelphia, PA. The deal had been negotiated and agreed to. However, before signing the contract,


After repeated contacts between NCC and WTP’s Bob Schulz, it was clear that NCC (acting as proxy for the federal government) had changed their minds about the CC 2009 engagement and was attempting to quietly scuttle the negotiated arrangement by introducing new and unacceptable terms and conditions that would have made it impossible to execute the CC 2009 event.

Despite our continuing success in launching the Continental Congress 2009 initiative, or more likely, because of such success, the management company contracted to run the Government’s National Constitutional Center (NCC) directly across from Independence Hall in Philadelphia decided to effectively withdraw their contract offer to make available the facility for the CC 2009 event.

From the National Constitution Center website,


The National Constitution Center is an independent, non-partisan, and non-profit organization dedicated to increasing public understanding of, and appreciation for, the Constitution, its history, and its contemporary relevance, through an interactive, interpretive facility within Independence National Historic Park and a program of national outreach, so that "We the People" may better secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity…. Here, we tell the story of the Constitution’s past and explain the principles of its present to show how “We, the People” can shape the story of its future.


Sounds good doesn't it? Well, actions speak louder than words...The NCC’s website is a product of the Annenberg Center for Education & Outreach therefore leading me to believe that the facility itself is at least partially funded by the Annenberg foundation. The Chairman of the Board of the NCC is President George H.W. Bush.


Following the NCC’s change of heart WTP has begun the process of evaluating alternative venues across the nation capable of hosting the CC 2009 event. WTP supporters are urged to submit their recommendations to bob@GiveMeLiberty.org. Please bear in mind that potential venues need to have adequate seating capacity, technology resources and a good number of available hotel rooms in the area.

It is also likely the CC 2009 schedule will be delayed by several weeks to late March. Details as to venue and schedule changes will be made public as they are available.

So, I guess… the beat goes on…

I forgot to put this in the original post:


Despite the existence of a firm offer from NCC, good through April 2, 2009, including price and conditions, needing only a CC 2009 start date, representatives of NCC this week rebuffed WTP’s efforts to fix the start date and to obtain bank wire transfer instructions to submit the required $14,000 down payment.
