Subject: URGENT ACTION NEEDED - 2 States Away from Constitutional Convention


The Ohio state legislature is possibly going to vote this afternoon on a resolution calling for a national constitutional convention. Only two more states are needed. We do NOT want to have a constitutional convention – they could scrap our entire U.S. Constitution with the Bill of Rights and start over!! There is more detailed explanation below from Tom DeWeese at the American Policy Center , but I am asking everyone to make two phone calls:


We need only stop the House bill, HJR8, sponsored by Representative Louis Blessing, chairman of the Ohio House Judiciary Committee (there is a Senate bill too).

1. Call Chairman Blessing's office and tell his staff you oppose a Constitutional Convention and you want this process stopped.

Tell them this is the most dangerous time ever to call for such a convention.

Tell them no one can control the debate or outcome of a Con Con.

Representative Louis Blessing
Phone: (614) 466-9091
Fax: (614) 719-3583

2. Call Representative Bill Batchelder. He is a very good man. I've known him for years. But he has been misled on this issue. The word is he is wavering. Your calls can convince him to withdraw his support. That can kill this bill.

Representative Bill Batchelder
Phone: (614) 466-8140
Fax: (614) 719-3969

Thanks for making these phone calls! Also, please send this email to everyone you know – in every state. This vote affects everyone in the country, so you have a vested interest in the outcome. If you can’t get through on the phone, keep trying and send an email while you’re waiting! J

Extremely Urgent Action Alert!

U.S. Two States Away from Constitutional Convention

This is the most urgent, most important action alert the American Policy Center has ever issued! The Ohio state legislature is expected to vote today, Wednesday, Dec. 10th, to call for a Constitutional Convention (Con Con). If Ohio calls for a Con Con only one more state need do so and Congress will have no choice but to convene a Convention, throwing our U.S. Constitution and Bill of Rights up for grabs. Ohio 's vote today poses a grave threat to the U.S. Constitution. Please immediately call the Ohio lawmakers listed below. ACT FAST - time is of the essence!

I apologize! This malignancy most foul remained undetected by our radar until a good friend brought it to our attention yesterday. The hour is late, but WE MUST TAKE IMMEDIATE ACTION!

It does not matter where you live. Ohio's vote today endangers everyone in every sta te in the Union, so we must pressure Ohio lawmakers to discard this disastrous legislative effort.

Thirty-two (32) other states have already called for a Con Con (allegedly to add a Balanced Budget Amendment to the Constitution). 34 states are all that is required, and then Congress MUST convene a Convention.

The U.S. Constitution places no restriction on the purposes for which the states can call for a Convention. If Ohio votes to call a Con Con, for whatever purpose, the United States will be only one state away from total destruction. And it's a safe bet that those who hate this nation, and all She stands for, are waiting to pounce upon this opportunity to re-write our Constitution. We dare slumber no longer; we must take immediate action to preserve this nation!

Certainly all loyal Americans want government constrained by a balanced budget. But calling a Con Con risks a revolutionary change in our form of government. The ultimate outcome will likely be a new constitution; one that would possibly eliminate the Article 1 restriction to the coinage of real money or even eliminate gun or property rights. So what may look like a good idea to the legislators driving this effort - all Republicans - will certainly make them prey to the law of unintended consequences - at the very least insuring the U.S. will never have a balanced budget - while destroying what vestiges of liberty the government still allows.

You may have heard that some of those 32 states have voted to rescind their calls. This is true. However, under Article V of the Constitution, Congress must call a Constitutional Convention whenever 2/3 (or 34) of the states apply. The Constitution makes no provision for rescission. We've been told advocates of the convention are waiting to capture just two more states - Ohio , and one other. They can then challenge the other states' res cissions in the courts while going ahead with the Convention. Congress alone then decides whether state legislatures or state conventions ratify proposed amendments.

You may have heard the states can control the subject of any convention. In truth no restrictive language from any state can legally limit the scope or outcome of a Convention! Once a Convention is called Congress determines how the delegates to the Convention are chosen. Once chosen, those Convention delegates possess more power than the U.S. Congress itself; if it were not so they would not be able to change the U.S. Constitution!

We have not had a Constitutional Convention since 1787. That Convention was called to make small changes in the Articles of Confederation. As a point of fact, several states first passed resolutions requiring their delegates discuss amendments to the Articles ONLY, forbidding even discussion of foundational changes . However, following the delegates' first agreement that their meetings be in secret, their second act was to agree to debate those state restrictions and to declare the Articles of Confederation NULL AND VOID! They also changed the ratification process, reducing the required states' approval from 100% to 75%. There is no reason to believe a contemporary Con Con wouldn't further "modify" Article V restrictions to suit its purpose.

As former Chief Justice Warren Burger said in a letter written to Phyllis Schlafly , President of Eagle Forum :
"...there is no effective way to limit or muzzle the actions of a Constitutional Convention. The convention could make its own rules and set its own agenda. Congress might try to limit the convention to one amendment or to one issue, but there is no way to assure that the convention would obey. After a convention is convened, it will be too late to stop the convention if we don't like its agenda. The meeting in 1787 ignored the limit placed by the confederation Congress..." (emphasis mine)

We were blessed in 1787; the Con Con delegates were the leaders of a freedom movement that had just cleansed this land of tyranny.

Today's corrupt politicians and judges would like nothing better than the ability to legally ignore the Constitution - to modify its "problematic" provisions to reflect the philosophical and socials mores of our contemporary society.

The majority of U.S. voters just elected a dedicated leftist as President. Republicans are at their weakest right now! This is a horrible time to try such a crazy scheme. We cannot control the debate right now! Don't for one second doubt that delegates to a Con Con wouldn't revise the 1st Amendment into a government-controlled privilege, replace the 2nd Amendment with a "collective" right to self-defense, and abolish the 4th, 5th, and 10th Amendments, and the rest of the Bill of R ights. Additions could include the non-existent Separation of Church and State, the "right" to abortion and euthanasia, and much, much more.

Our uniquely and purely American concept of individual rights, endowed by our Creator, would be quickly set aside as an anachronistic relic of a bygone era; replaced by new "collective" rights, awarded and enforced by government for the "common good".

The problems our nation faces are not a result of deficiencies in our Constitution; rather, they are the direct result of our disregard for that divinely-inspired document of liberty.

There is no challenge faced by this nation that cannot be solved either by enforcing existing law, or in limited cases, by writing new law. We do not need, AND MUST NOT RISK THE LIBERTY OF THE UNITED STATES with, a Constitutional Convention!

Ohio must not vote for a Con Con! We cannot control the debate! And state #34 is likely sitting silently in the wings, ready to act with lightning speed, sealing the fate of our once great nation before we can prevent it.

Stop the Ohio bill and we can stop the Constitutional Convention.


We need only stop the House bill, HJR8, sponsored by Representative Louis Blessing, chairman of the House Judiciary Committee (there is a Senate bill too).

1. Call Chairman Blessing's office and tell his staff you oppose a Constitutional Convention and you want this process stopped.

Tell them this is the most dangerous time ever to call for such a convention.

Tell them no one can control the debate or outcome of a Con Con.

3. It is URGENT that you make your calls right now. The bill could be voted on as early as this afternoon (Wednesday).

I'm so sorry for this late notice. We just found out about this last night.

Please get this message out far and wide. This task requires our very best effort! E-mail and call your friends, family and neighbors. Network anywhere and everywhere possible. If you know someone who never takes action, encourage them to break that habit this one time. Our Constitution is under assault!

Forbes Magazine: "Time to devalue the US Dollar"

Wednesday, December 10, 2008 9:22 PM
To: undisclosed-recipients
In an absolutely stunning article, a writer in Forbes Magazine is suggests an
"overnight currency devaluation" to help right the economy. The writer says that
devaluing the US dollar by THIRTY PERCENT (30%) would do the trick.

Dollar Devaluation To Fix The Great Recession

Adviser Soapbox

Frank Beck, 12.09.08

A quick dollar devaluation would work wonders for submerged borrowers. Don't kid
yourself: It could happen.

What began as government social tinkering--with implied threats to banks and
mortgage companies to extend home loans to even the most marginal of
borrowers--led to a greed-blinded mortgage banking business and the meltdown we
are experiencing today. Now we are asked by the same congressional leadership to
go along with taxpayer-funded bailouts of the very banksters who, while making
millions, created the mess.

Despite the trillions of dollars already expended recapitalizing banks, there is
very little, if any, progress to show. Will a few trillion more do the trick?
That seems to be the consensus among Congress and the banks. "They are simply
too big to let fail," or are they really just too big to save? We can go back to
"Plan A" and buy the toxic assets. If so, at what price? What if a few trillion
does not remove enough toxic waste from the system or doesn't get credit flowing
again and the economy bustling?

Some argue that it is time to help Main Street, not Wall Street. So, we should
"forgive" some of the mortgages for those who are 90 days or more behind on
their payments. Have you quit paying yet?

If we are to save bankers, shouldn't we at least distinguish between those who
possess the intelligence to renegotiate their loans to workable terms? If we are
to save homeowners, should not we first define the term "homeowner?" Perhaps it
is not only someone who agreed to and signed a mortgage and is living in a
house. Just perhaps, it should also include the stipulation that this individual
paid some amount of a down payment: 20%, 5%, a dollar. I can tell you who is not
a homeowner. It is not someone who paid zero down and ridiculously low payments
for two years; that, my friend, is a renter.

The Birth Certificate Blues

Letter Received from the Republican Party:

Now that the Supreme Court has taken a pass on the issue, the action filed by United States Justice Foundation (USJF) is our best hope when it comes to compelling President-elect Obama to respect the Constitution and provide the American people viable substantiation that he is Constitutionally qualified to be President of the United States.

Some of what you are about to read may shock you. Some of what you read may cause you to tremble. In fact... Reading this letter may be the one of the most important things you do in your life! The sad and unfortunate truth is that your life... the liberties and freedoms we all sometimes take for granted... your future and the future of your children and grandchild actually hinges on what actions you choose to take after reading this letter.

1. What would happen if you woke up one morning and found out that the President of the United States was a USURPER... a FRAUD... a PHONY? Think about that question for a while before you answer. Mull it over.
2. What would happen if the leader of the free world was Constitutionally ineligible to be President of the United States but - in direct and undisputable violation of the letter of the Constitution - decided to take and hold office anyway?
3. What would happen if a politician actually got away with such a thing?
4. Do you believe ANY of our God-given rights would remain secure?
5. Would any bill this Usurper signed into law be valid?
6. Would this Usurper's Supreme Court appointments be valid?
7. Would the military recognize this Usurper as Commander-in-Chief and what actions would those within our military take?
8. What would our enemies around the world do?
9. What would happen to the economy... your job... your home... your assets or what you've put away for retirement?
10. Would our society destabilize uncontrollably and would we actually start down the road to anarchy?

Here's a scarier proposition. For years, liberal activist judges have tried to legislate from the bench and erode the Constitution, but in doing so, they have always been nuanced and careful in their approach. They found "penumbras" in the Constitution or claimed the Constitution was a "living, breathing and evolving document" so they could make a pretext of honoring the Constitution as they changed its actual meaning and slowly and almost imperceptibly eradicated the rights of the people.

Would a flagrant, callous and outright disregard of the Constitution send a clear message to liberal activist judges and legislators that a nuanced approach was no longer necessary... that they could literally strip our rights, liberties and freedoms with tyrannical impunity... that the Constitution of the United States is effectively a WORTHLESS PIECE OF PAPER?

Could the will of the people become merely something that could be ignored by those who tyrannically hold the reins of political power at the moment? If JUST ONE SECTION of our Constitution can beflagrantly and callously ignored, IS ANY PART OF THE CONSTITUTION VALID ANYMORE?

If you think I exaggerate, ponder those points for a moment and understand why President-elect Barack Obama MUST be compelled to verify that he is a "natural born citizen!" If President-elect Obama is NOT compelled to verify that he is Constitutionally eligible to be President of the United States, the consequences could be dire for you... for your children... for your grandchildren... and for our nation!

The people of the United States do NOT directly elect the President. The people choose Electors from their respective states who, in turn, elect the President and Vice-President of the United States. THESE ELECTORS MEET ON DECEMBER 15!

Americans in each state are being asked to please contact their state Attorney Generals to demand that they take necessary steps to ensure that the Electors from their respective states properly fulfill and execute the duties of their office and verify that President-elect Obama is a "natural born citizen" prior to casting their votes on December 15. These Electors have an obligation to uphold the Constitution. It's an obligation that supersedes their pledge to vote for a particular candidate. And moreover each of the Attorney Generals of the 50 States has an obligation as well to see to it that the Electors properly execute the duties of their office.

For the Record, we are not saying that President-elect Obama is NOT Constitutionally eligible to be President of the United States. The problem is we simply do not know! When reports surfaced that President-elect Obama's maternal grandmother was claiming that she was was present at Obama's birth in Mombasa in what is now Kenya, some people dismissed the statement as unsubstanciated. But then, a birth certificate that turned out to be a forgery made its way onto Obama's website. Why produce a forged birth certificate?

Then there were the ambiguous statements from officials in Hawaii who claimed that a "Certificate of Live Birth" exists for President-elect Obama in Hawaii. However the laws of Hawaii allow for a child to be furnished a "Certificate of Live Birth" even if the child was NOT born in Hawaii. Specifically, the statute reads: " Certificates for children born out of State. (a) Upon application of an adult or the legal parents of a minor child, the director of health shall issue a birth certificate for such adult or minor, provided that proof has been submitted to the director of health thatthe legal parents of such individual while living without the Territory or State of Hawaii had declared the Territory or State of Hawaii as their legal residence for at least one year immediately preceding the birth or adoption of such child."

Dr. Chiyome Fukino with Hawaii's Department of Health stated: "Therefore, I as Director of Health for the State of Hawaii, along with the Registrar of Vital Statistics who has statutory authority to oversee and maintain these type of vital records, have personally seen and verified that the Hawaii State Department of Health has Sen. Obama's original birth certificate on record in accordance with state policies and procedures." But officials in Hawaii got mysteriously silent when asked; if the "Birth Certificate" listed Obama's actual place of birth. Why?

Then there was the issue of college records that Obama refuses to release. Why? Could those records indicate that he received financial aid as a foreign student?

Recently Dr. Jerome Corsi traveled to Kenya to see if he could find a birth certificate for President-elect Obama but was etained by Kenyan officials. Again... Why?

Janet Porter, writing for, raises even more questions: According to Porter: "In Hawaii, a Certification of Live Birth is issued within a year of a child's birth to those who register a birth abroad or one that takes place outside a hospital,' she said.""'There's the matter that Obama traveled to Indonesia, Pakistan, Southern India and Kenya in 1981. He said he went to Indonesia to see his mother. This seemed plausible, except for the fact that his mother returned to Hawaii in August of 1980 to file for a divorce from her second husband, Lolo Soetoro. Unless she went back to pal around with the man she divorced, she wasn't there at the time of Obama's visit," Porter wrote.

There's another problem. No record of Obama holding an American passport prior to the one he received once becoming a U.S.senator has been found. If he traveled to Pakistan with an American passport, he wouldn't have been allowed in -- since Pakistan was in turmoil in 1981 and under martial law. It was also on the State Department's travel ban list for U.S. citizens,' she wrote. "'If he couldn't get into Pakistan with a U.S. passport, perhaps he went there with an Indonesian passport. But the only way you can get one of those is if you are an Indonesian citizen.'"

And finally, one can not shake President-elect Obama's unwillingness to release an authentic copy of his birth certificate, nor can it be ignored that President-elect Obama has hired teams of attorneys (not individual attorneys but teams of attorneys) to thwart attempts by third parties to compel him to produce a birth certificate.

The question as to whether President-elect Obama is a "natural born citizen" - as REQUIRED (NOT SUGGESTED) by the Constitution - is not just significant... it's now downright compelling. And it's a question that MUST be answered! The people of the United States do NOT directly elect the President. The people choose Electors from their respective states who, in turn, elect the President and Vice-President of the United States. THESE ELECTORS MEET ON DECEMBER 15! These electors will vote in a matter of days. Time is short and under such circumstances, working your way upthe food chain quickly is a PRIORITY!

Some people have contacted the Electors in their states. Lynn Stuter, writing for the Internet website, recounts what happened when she e-mailed an elector in her state. Stuter pointsout: "Electors are sworn to uphold it (the Constitution) with their vote on December 15th in the Electoral College. But they must first know for sure tha the candidates meet the Constitutional requirements for the office of President beginning with being a natural born citizen." Then, Stuter gets to the meat of the matter: "I am requesting that you examine closely the information provided below before you vote on December 15, 2008. If, after being elected president, Barack Hussein Obama is found to be, in fact, ineligible, the constitutional crisis will be far reaching." "The first duty of every Elector is to the Constitution.

"The next morning, I received the following response from one of the Electors: "'I have put you on my spam service. I will NO longer accept mail from you. I have signed an affadavit (sic) that I will vote for my parties (sic) candidate. You are asking me to go against this affadavit (sic) which not only would cause a large monetary fine but would go against the promise I made in Person (sic) to well over 1000 people.' "'In asking me to go against my written pledge which our state requires you are (sic) encourage me to do an illegal thing.' "'Most of all, I think that President-elect Obama is one of the best things to ever happen to our country. As a life long Democrat and (sic) a bi racial (sic) son who was killed in action as a soldier; it is my HONOR to cast my electoral vote for him.'"

Incidentally, while we're on the subject of Electors, we recently located what appears to be a glaring irregularity in California. In Los Angeles County, Ilene Huber is listed as the presidential elector designated in the 28th Congressional district. However, the registrar-recorder/county clerk of the county of Los Angeles, state of California, has no record of an Ilene Huber listed as a registered voter in the County of Los Angeles. Furthermore, a statewide search of public records has revealed only one Ilene Huber in the state of California, and she is deceased. Other than a dead Elector there may be even more irregularities.

According to "... [A]ccording to Chris Myers, director of research for the California Democratic Party, who submitted the list of presidential electors for the Democratic Party to the office of the California secretary of state, there are additional, undisclosed, 'errors' in the list of electors. This admission was made in a telephone conversation with a representative of the American Independent Party on or about November 20, 2008."

Simply stated, if the Electoral College actually allowed an unqualified person to be elected President of the United States, or allowed a person to be elected without verifying that that he or she is qualified, our entire form of government could be compromised!I don't make that statement lightly. It's not an exaggeration. Liberty and freedom are not the rule in this world. They're exceptions. In the United States, we take freedom for granted. It's a given. To us it's like breathing or walking. And that's no accident.

Our Founding Fathers established a government under the basic premise that men "are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights." .. rights that could not be taken away because they come from a Power greater than any one of us. They believed the primary purpose of government was to secure and safeguard those rights and they enumerated those rights in the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. Stated in greater detail..."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, That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it...."

When the most powerful among us are no longer bound by those founding documents - and, more importantly, when we refuse to hold them accountable - there can be no freedom... no liberty... only unrest...violence... oppression... tyranny... perhaps not tomorrow, but very soon! Our Founding Fathers knew that all too well. The action you take now may very well determine the future you leave to your children and grandchildren.

We have indeed crossed the Rubicon. If we do nothing... we sign the death warrant for our nation.

Constitution in hands of Electoral College

FedEx Members of
The Electoral College

Last chance to lobby for
constitutional eligibility standard

Despite receiving more than 60,000 of our letters last week, the U.S. Supreme Court announced on Monday that it had refused to review one of the cases challenging the President-elect' s eligibility to hold that office.

"That leaves it up to the Electoral College," says WND Editor Joseph Farah. "If you want to do everything you can, like I do, to see that the letter and spirit of the Constitution are upheld in this election year,
this may be your last chance to weigh in before Inauguration Day. I urge you to work with us in sending letters to members of the Electoral College."

Here's Our Next Move:

Following up the campaign last week to FedEx the U.S. Supreme Court, WND today announces a historic first in its quest to establish Barack Obama's eligibility for office -
a similar FedEx letter drive directed at individual Electoral College members.

Through Thursday at noon Eastern, WND is providing an opportunity to Americans who would like to contact electors of the next president before they vote Monday to send Obama to the White House.

WND has obtained addresses for more than 87 percent of the 538-member Electoral College. The letters will be sent FedEx to the 470 members for whom addresses are available. They will all be delivered Friday morning, giving each elector the weekend to consider the constitutional issues raised by Obama's presidency.

With the new "FedEx the Electoral College" program, you can reach all 470 with a one-page pre-written letter, with your name and address attached, delivered overnight for less than it would cost you to FedEx one member - if you had the address.

"The idea was to make this very easy and inexpensive for Americans to make their voices heard," explained Farah. "We encourage other creative ways to prevail upon the consciences of the Electoral College members, but these are not high-profile, public figures. They are ordinary Americans who are little known to the public and who lead private lives. It is not easy to find their names, let alone addresses. While we do not feel comfortable making those addresses public, we believe this campaign will allow Americans to offer their opinions and concerns in a controlled way, without violating the privacy of individual members."

Farah personally drafted the letter that will be sent to the Electoral College members above the name and address of all those participating in the program. The letters sent in the
"FedEx the Electoral College" campaign will read:

Electoral College Member
123 Main Street
Anytown, PA 12345

Dear member of the Electoral College:

Before you cast your vote Monday to make Barack Hussein Obama Jr. the next president of the United States, please seriously consider the following:

Right now, a dozen lawsuits are pending all over the United States - including one brought by a former presidential candidate and U.N. ambassador, and another suit brought by a former deputy attorney general of Pennsylvania, plus there are many others - all attempting to bring clarity to an issue that will haunt an Obama presidency if it isn't dealt with now.

That issue, as you surely know, is the fact that the U.S. Constitution says clearly and unambiguously in Article 2, Section 1 that presidents must be natural born citizens. But, as is evident not only from lawsuits, but from news stories and the actions of millions of Americans signing petitions, this constitutional issue has not yet been addressed, even at this late hour.

Unfortunately, there isn't enough time for our slow-moving legal process to deal with this before the Electoral College meets next week. Only you, our Electors, have the power and responsibility - and the obligation under the Constitution - to use your authority to establish, beyond any shadow of a doubt, that Barack Hussein Obama Jr. qualifies for the office under that standard.

There is grave and widespread concern throughout the American public that this constitutional requirement is being overlooked and enforcement neglected by state and federal election authorities. There should be no doubt whatsoever that America's next president was truly born in the United States.

Remember, if the Constitution doesn't mean precisely what it says, then America is no longer a nation under the rule of law. And a nation no longer under the rule of law is, by definition, under the rule of men.

Therefore I urge you to honor the Constitution in this matter and uphold the public trust - even if doing so may prove awkward or inconvenient.

All Americans should have confidence their president is eligible to serve. In this unique and historic case, you may prove to be the Constitution' s last line of defense.


The name and address of every participant in the "FedEx the Electoral College" campaign will be displayed for the 470 Electoral College members who receive the letters.

This is an historic opportunity to speak directly to the Electoral College at a critical time in American history.

Sign me up! I want to send my FedEx message to the Electoral College right now for only $10.95.

P.S. Remember, the Electoral College convenes Monday, Dec. 15, to determine who the next president will be. After that, nothing stands in the way of a Barack Obama presidency -- and another nail in the coffin of literal interpretation of our Constitution.
So act now!

Attachment 1 – Excerpts of Congressional Record of Vol. 92 Pt. 2 and Vol. 92 Pt.. 5 of 1946.

Attachment 2 – Excerpt of 28 U.S.C. § 1254 with commentary from Westlaw and some case cites.


Does the Supreme Court of the United States Declare the Law Today?

The Truth about the Writ of Certiorari.

Is Barack Hussein Obama’s Natural Born Citizen Status Secret Safe?

If the Supreme Court of the United States does not declare the Law arising under the Federal Constitution on the mandatory issue of natural born citizen for a President of the United States in Article II Section 1 Clause 5 concerning Barack Hussein Obama, then who does? Shockingly the answer is no one! So the next question should be how can that happen?

“The object of the constitution was to establish three great departments of government; the legislative, the executive, and the judicial department.. The first was to pass laws, the second to approve and execute them, and the third to expound and enforce the them.” [1]

It is well settled law that only the judicial department declares the law as held and pronounced in adjudged decision of the Supreme Court of the United States in Marbury v. Madison, 1 Cranch 137, 177 (1803) “[I]t is emphatically the province and duty of the judicial department to say what the law is.” See also United States v. Morrison, 529 U.S. 598, 607 (2000); Plaut v. Spendthrift Farm, Inc, 514 U.S. 211, 211 (1995); Harper v. Virginia Dept. of Taxation, 509 U.S. 86, 107 (1993).

The tripartite constitutional Republic established in the Federal Constitution, which consisted only of the legislative, executive and judicial departments is no longer used “[W]ith the advent and triumph of the administrative state” [2]. This knowledge is only posited in some Federal and State Agency personnel, the Congress, the President, federal judges, some state legislators and state judges precluding the people of these United States the their secured rights of a tripartite government. This “Administrative State” triumph and the demise of the tripartite government isn’t being taught in the schools and colleges in America; or, disclosed in media; or, disclosed on talk shows or, disclosed by the people that understand the overthrow of the Republic.

So what happened to the tripartite constitutional Republic where the judicial Branch declares the Law?

From the Congressional Record of 1946 Senator McCarran who was the chairman of the judicial committee reporting to the Senate on the Administrative Procedure Act of 1946 prior to it being passed in 1946 stated that Congress setup a fourth branch in the Congressional Record [3] to wit:

We have set up a fourth order in the tripartite plan of Government which was initiated by the founding fathers of our democracy. They set up the executive, the legislative, and the judicial branches; but since that time we have set up a fourth dimension, if I may so term it, which is popularly known as administrative in nature. So we have the legislative, the executive, the judicial, and the administrative”

The 1937 President’s Committee on Administrative Management of Franklin Delano Roosevelt issued in its report with the excerpt evidenced in the Congressional Record of 1946 Volume 92 Pt. 2 Cong. Rec. Sen. page 2149 the “headless” fourth branch [3] and this was also acknowledged by Franklin Delano Roosevelt, to wit:

The executive branch of the Government of the United States has * * * grown up without plan or design * * * To look at it now, no one would ever recognize the structure which the founding fathers erected a century and a half ago. * * * Commissions have been the result of legislative groping rather than the pursuit of consistent policy * * * They are in reality miniature independent governments set up to deal with the railroad problem, the banking problem, or the radio problem. They constitution a headless fourth branch” of the Government, a haphazard deposit of irresponsible agencies and uncoordinated powers. * * * There is a conflict of principle involved in their make-up and functions. * * * They are vested with duties of administration * * * and at the same time they are given important judicial work. * * * The evils resulting from this confusion of principles are insidious and far reaching * * * Pressures and influences properly enough directed toward officers responsible for formulating and administering policy constitute an unwholesome atmosphere in which to adjudicate private rights. But the mixed duties of commissions render escape from these subversive influences impossible. Furthermore, the same men are obligated to serve both as prosecutors and as judges. This not only undermines judicial fairness; it weakens public confidence in that fairness. Commissioner decisions affecting private rights and conduct lie under the suspicion of being rationalizations of the preliminary findings which the Commission, in the role of prosecutor, presented to itself.
Mr. President, I have been quoting from the report of the President’s Committee on Administrative Management, issued in 1937. In transmitting that report to Congress, President Roosevelt added a comment of his own from which I also wish to quote. He said: I have examined this report carefully and thoughtfully, and am convinced that it is a great document of permanent importance. * * * The practice of creating independent regulatory commissions, who perform administrative work in addition to judicial work, threatens to develop a “fourth branch” of the Government for which there is no sanction in the Constitution. [Emphasis added]

Congress continued with what can only be termed Treason by usurping the executive Power of the United States by Senator McCarran explaining in Congressional Record of 1946 Volume 92 Pt. 2 Cong. Rec. Sen. page 2149 that Congress wanted to administer the laws “We found that the legislative branch, although it might enact law, could not very well administer it.” [3]

Congress’s Administrative scheme circumvents Article VI of enacting Laws of the United States that have application directly upon the people. To fool the people into the idea of the tripartite Republic, Congress uses “agencies” mandating that they publish in the Federal Register and only then does Congress’s Code apply to the individual citizen as explained by Representative Gwynne of Iowa in the Congressional Record Volume 92 Pt. 5. Rec. Rep. page 5656 [3], to wit:

“After a law has been passed by the Congress, before it applies to the individual citizen there are about three steps that must be taken. First, the bureau having charge of enforcement must write rules and regulations to amplify, interpret, or expand the statute that we passed; rule making, we call it. * * * Then it requires that these rules or regulations which have the effect of law must be published in the Federal Register and go into effect at some future date.”

This is easily verified that rules and regulations must be published in the Federal Register first to have any application to individual citizens and then have a comment period mandated under 5 U.S.C. § 553 to have the force and effect of law being identified as “substantive regulations.” See holding in Chrysler v. Brown, 441 U.S. 281 (1979). Very few people are informed of Congress’s Administrative scheme and want to use the U.S.C. taught that the “law” resides therein, but is doesn’t.

With the triumph of the “fourth branch” of government not sanctioned by the Federal Constitution there was no need for the constitutional Courts of the United States secured in Article III. The “District Court of the United States” was quietly posited in the closet in 1948 and a new court was established being the “United States District Court” (“USDC”) in 1948 in Title 28 U.S.C. § 132. The USDC does not exercise “The judicial Power [“of the United States” – Article III Section 1 Clause 1] shall extend to all Cases, in Law and Equity, arising under the Constitution . . . “ of Article III Section 2 Clause 2. Under the Administrative State in the Administrative Procedure Act of 1946 [4] we find in the Congressional Record excerpt [5] of Senator McCarran disclosing the court system that will be used in the newly created fourth branch, i.e. Administrative State, to wit:

“Similarly, conservative common law judges and lawyers have fought the development of equity and most every other judicial reform.
Subsection (g) provides that judgments of original courts of review shall be appealable in accordance with equity law and in the absence thereof, by the Supreme Court upon writs of certiorari.”

In the current Administrative State there is no requirement for a Court of Law (constitutional court) as this is only required in a tripartite constitutional Republic and the current Equity court is sufficient today.

Having no access to the Law side of Court of the United States today, but only to the Equity side, the Supreme Court of the United States is no longer mandated to declare the law pronounced in Marbury, supra.

In 1988 the only constitutional Courts left in the Republic was the Supreme Court of the United States and of the Court of International Trade (“CIT”). The CIT exercised a very small part of the judicial Power of the United States arising under Article III having nothing to do private rights of the people, which is constitutional as the judicial Power of the United States can be posited in several courts as required. The CIT still exists today.

The access to the Supreme Court of the United States had been closed by Public Law 100-352 by eliminating the mandatory jurisdiction of the Supreme Court and eliminated the appeal process. This is found in the commentary in Westlaw by David D. Siegel excerpt of 28 U.S.C. § 1254 [6], to wit:

“The section governs the routing of cases from the federal courts of appeals to the U.S. Supreme Court. Its amendment was a key part of the 1988 bill, whose purpose was to eliminate the mandatory jurisdiction of the U.S. Supreme Court and let the Court decide for itself just what cases it will or won't hear. The repealed subdivision (2), authorizing "appeal" to the Court in certain instances, mandated that the Court determine the case on its merits regardless of its importance in national context. The certiorari procedure under subdivision (1), on the other hand, enables the Court to determine for itself whether it will hear a case, a lighter task than deciding the case on the merits.
In recognition of the burdens that the mandatory jurisdiction was imposing on the Court, and in fulfillment of the Court's long-standing request, Congress eliminated the appeal procedure. Everything it would have embraced then shifted over to subdivision (1) and needs a grant of certiorari to get up.”

The decision of the Supreme Court of the United States on the Writ of Certiorari is totally discretionary today and the denial of the Writ of Certiorari has absolutely nothing to do with either the merits or the standing of the parties. So the denial by the Supreme Court of the United States of the Certiorari concerning Obama has absolutely no meaning as to whether he is or isn’t a natural born native.

And a denial of the Writ of Certiorari does not affirm or deny any veracity to the decision of the lower courts and has no precedential value but only affirms the Supreme Court of the United States chose not to grant the Writ of Certiorari. [[6] for cases cites..]

A denial of the Writ of Certiorari by the Supreme Court of the United States is seldom disclosed but only means there were not four members of nine members that wished to hear the case, i.e. known as the “Four Justice Rule.” [[6] for cases cites.]

Few understand the closure of all appeal access to the Supreme Court of the United States to declare the law with the attorneys religiously citing cases with the “certiorari denied” in their pleadings that is absolutely worthless unknown to American citizens that rely upon their expertise.

The Writs of Error designed to declare the law were abolished in 1928 at 45 Stat. 54. So here find ourselves with no mandatory Judicial Branch by the Federal Constitution to declare the Law. The Writ of Habeas Corpus has been restricted by Congress mandating the filing of a 2255 Motion prior to the Habeas Corpus to the Federal Courts. To even entertain a real Habeas Corpus Congress has restricted the writ so narrowly rending it almost totally ineffective.

There are real solutions but they will not be easily attained..

December 10, 2008 (A Special Report)

Since Gary Webb’s suicide four years ago, I have written annual retrospectives about the late journalist’s important contribution to the historical record -- he forced devastating admissions from the CIA about drug trafficking by the Nicaraguan contra rebels under the protection of the Reagan administration in the 1980s.

And each time I’ve written one of those stories, I have received e-mails attacking my acceptance of the fact that Webb committed suicide on the night of Dec. 9, 2004. Some people want to believe that he was really assassinated by the CIA or some other government agency.

But the evidence of his carefully planned suicide – as he suffered deep pain as a pariah in his profession who could no longer earn a living – actually points to something possibly even more tragic: Webb ended his life because people who should have supported his work simply couldn’t be bothered.

Though Gary Webb was horribly betrayed by his colleagues in the news business – and especially his editors at the San Jose Mercury News – he also was taken advantage of by people in the progressive movement, who sometimes exploited his celebrity by having him speak at their events for little or no money.

There is a deeply troubling attitude within the American progressive movement that it bears next to no responsibility for people who speak truth to power and suffer terrible consequences, as Webb did. While sometimes progressives cheer the heroism, they rarely back it up with anything sustainable.

More often than not, after the celebrity fades, the person is left to fend for him or herself as an outcast from a profession that pays a salary and lets a person support a family. Indeed, what happened to Gary Webb – and to other mainstream journalists who took chances in the name of truth – is a powerful object lesson to those left behind, to play it safe.

Progressives often denounce mainstream journalists as sell-outs who are too timid to challenge the powerful or to take on the tough stories. But – by refusing to invest significantly in a media infrastructure – the progressives are partly responsible for the problem.

I must take some of the blame for Webb’s death, too.

Report suggests radical personnel changes

By Rick Maze - Staff writer
Posted : Tuesday Dec 9, 2008 9:25:15 EST

A bipartisan think tank takes controversial positions involving military personnel in a new report about national security strategy.

To deal with recruiting and retention problems, the Center for National Policy recommends lifting the military’s ban on open service by gays, barring the services from using stop-loss orders to keep people on active duty beyond their separation dates, and requiring every American youth to serve the nation in mandatory national service ­ with military duties as one option.

Called “Agility Across the Spectrum: A Future Force Blueprint,” the report, released today, also recommends phasing out the use of civilian contractors as private security guards by 2014, which would require an increase of 92,000 active-duty personnel.

The Perfect Law of Liberty--the Solution

Wednesday, December 10, 2008 6:25 PM

To: undisclosed-recipients

There is a solution to increasing government power and control. There is
a solution to the destruction of families, culture, borders, and freedom.

This solution was implemented by Abraham, Moses, and Jesus. It was the
only solution that could set men free from tyranny and keep them free.
In the Old Testament it was called the Perfect Law of Liberty. The
Apostle Paul called it the Higher Liberty. It was the plan for
government laid out by God and implemented by His Prophets.

That solution is men living under the Perfect Law of Liberty by
following the pattern of grassroots social and economic organization
laid down by God and proclaimed the Prophets and by the Messiah.

God's model for bottom-up self-government has been in our faces in the
Bible. Yet today few see it and reject it for top-down government that
gradually eats out all wealth and oppresses all men.

Many are exposing corruption but there is very little mention of any
workable solution.

According to God's Word as contained in the Holy Bible, men are to solve
the problem of centralized power by organizing themselves into
autonomous orders to take care of each other and render the need for
government benefits and government commerce obsolete. While most modern
churches teach that the gospel is to claim Jesus as your saviour and
meet on Sundays to sing hymns, we find that the ancient Christians and
Israelites had a far different view and practice of the gospel. It was
and remains about self-government and selfless service.

His Holy Church is one church that has been publishing this workable
solution for years. All the information needed for patriots to be free
is contained in several free publications offered by the church. [ ]

All that is needed is for this information to reach the masses and for a
small minority of people to begin implementing it.

When organized and prepared, without a central authority to undermine
the society, a free people under God can and will weather the tough
times ahead.

That solution is so obvious, so simple, that it is not obvious or simple
to men blinded by fear, selfishness, greed, and sloth. But the diligent
and those who love their neighbor can see the way and begin to implement
the building up of a free society under Christ even in the wake of a
burgeoning police state.

Fed considers issuing its own debt: WSJ

By Simon Kennedy
Last update: 6:16 a.m. EST Dec. 10, 2008
LONDON (MarketWatch) -- The Federal Reserve is mulling issuing its own debt for the first time in a move that would give it more flexibility to stabilize financial markets, The Wall Street Journal reported Wednesday, citing a person familiar with the matter. Government debt issuance is largely the job of the Treasury Department, but Fed officials are looking for new tools as the crisis drags on and have approached Congress about the idea, the Journal reported. It added the concept could include issuing bills or some other form of debt, but it isn't known whether the preliminary discussions will result in a formal proposal or Fed action. The Journal said one roadblock is that the Federal Reserve Act doesn't explicitly permit the Fed to issue notes beyond currency

The CONTRA'S of 1871..
Historical Outline

Martial Law is declared by President Lincoln on April 24th, 1863, with General Orders No. 100; under martial law authority, Congress and President Lincoln institute continuous martial law by ordering the states (people) either conscribe troops and or provide money in support of the North or be recognized as enemies of the nation; this martial law Act of Congress is still in effect today. This martial law authority gives the President (with or without Congress) the dictatorial authority to do anything that can be done by government in accord with the Constitution of the United States of America. This conscription act remains in effect to this very day and is the foundation of Presidential Executive Orders authority; it was magnified in 1917 with The Trading with the Enemy Act (Public Law 65-91, 65th Congress, Session I, Chapters 105, 106, October 6, 1917). and again in 1933 with the Emergency War Powers Act, which is ratified and enhanced almost every year to this date by Congress. Today these Acts address the people of the United States themselves as their enemy.


THE "CONTRA" TROJAN INTENTIONS OF BEGGAR-THY-NEIGHBOU R CURRENCY DEVALUATIONS appears to have hit a 'snag' going up river on its way to GLOBAL BANKING, FINANCING AND ECONOMICS "HOSTAGE" TAKING. All the little rich boys pushed the envelope too far, the CONTRA TROJAN backfired on all of them.. Instead of the Global International Community of Banking "making a financial killing" from this Global Ponzi Scheme they discovered they had 'bit on the poisoned baith' of THE AL QAEDA more specifically identified as THE CONTRA'S who, if you look the word CONTRA up.. you will find these individuals are "against, confronting, opposite to; on the other hand; on the contrary" to and against 'established, long standing laws of Civilized Governments. ' As fine example of a "CONTRA" that can be found, can be found in Franklin D. Roosevelt's "CONTRA" "Emergency Powers" established in 1933 to co-respond to Adolph Hitlers "Emergency Powers" of 1933.. within days of each other.. or shortly after the Duke and Duchess of Windsor who were 'friends of both Adolph and the Roosevelts' delivered 'messages' as they were guests in the HYDE PARK home of the President and his wife.

Roosevelt's next "CONTRA" move came in the form "REFORM OF THE FEDERAL JUDICIARY" [U.S. 75th Cong. 1st Sess. Sen. Report 711 ] which I have written previously about "VK DURHAM:SECOND ATTEMPT TO "REFORM THE JUDICIARY ACT" cgi?read= 72104 and "ROOSEVELT AND CHURCHILL A COMMUNISTS BEST FRIENDS" at 72224 .

Honduran President Manuel Zelaya. (AP Images)
With the global financial slowdown dragging on Central American economies, eight heads of state came together in Honduras Friday to discuss how to head off the effects of the credit crisis. Presidents and vice presidents of the seven Central American countries plus the Dominican Republic for the annual Central American Integration System (SICA) leaders summit in San Pedro Sula, Honduras. The leaders hammered out a 41-point economic agreement of “urgent measures,”including proposals to step up integration, food security, and investment. The countries also pitched the idea of creating a common currency. El Salvador and Panama use the U.S. dollar while the remaining countries currently have their own currencies.

The global credit crisis has delivered a wallop to SICA nations, which were already hit hard by a food crisis that struck earlier in 2008 and a slowdown in remittance flows. Analysts predict a deceleration in Central American growth next year, from 4.3 percent in 2008 to 2.8 percent in 2009. Moreover, many SICA countries command the highest poverty rates in the Americas. For example, although a new report published by the Economic Commission for Latin America and the Caribbean found that Honduras saw one of the regions sharpest drops in poverty (by 3.7 percent) in 2007, it continued to have the highest poverty rate of any of the countries surveyed, running at nearly 70 percent.

"The architecture of the economy needs changes; we have to achieve financial, trade, and food independence within the region," said the Honduran President Manuel Zelaya. With these goals in mind, leaders of Belize, Guatemala, El Salvador, Honduras, Nicaragua, Costa Rica, Panama, and the Dominican Republic agreed to create a credit fund and stimulus packages for various sectors to counter the possibility of slowing foreign investment and slowing remittance flows.

The details of how such credit fund would be created have yet to be worked out. So do plans for a common currency and passport as well as a plan to "standardize laws" in the immigration, education, and security sectors "that will give greater cohesion to Central American integration and that ensure citizens the benefits of that integration. " As the Latin Americanist blog points out, should SICA pursue such plans, the region will undoubtedly draw comparisons to the European Union. The SICA proposal comes at a time when the Central American countries continue to negotiate with the EU for an association agreement designed to deepen political dialogue, cooperation, and establish a free trade zone between the two regions. Negotiations are expected to conclude next year.

The SICA meeting coincided with a handover of the organization’ s six-month presidency from Honduras’ Zelaya to Nicaraguan leader Daniel Ortega. On the day before Friday’s summit, Honduran Central Bank President Edwin Araque reported that his country does not plan to follow IMF recommendations to devaluate the lempira. In August, Honduras joined the Bolivarian Alternative for the Americas (ALBA) whose other members consist of Bolivia, Cuba, Dominica, Honduras, Venezuela, and new SICA host country Nicaragua. rest of article: .

Putin Suggests Russia, China Ditch Dollar in Trade Deals
RIA Novosti reports that Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin proposed on Tuesday that Russia and China gradually switch over to national currency payments in bilateral trade, expected to total $50 billion in 2008.

"We should consider improving the payment system for bilateral trade, including by gradually adopting a broader use of national currencies," Putin told a bilateral economic forum.

He admitted the task would be tough, but said it was necessary amid the current problems with the dollar-based global economy. rest of article at

In law enforcement lingo-jargon these are called “AKAs”. The Inter-American Investment Corporation, aka: Contra Money Laundering, aka: U.S. Government’s Inter-American Investment Corporation, aka: U.S. Central Intelligence Agency operating under the U.S. Department of State and U.S. Department of Agriculture.

The Mexico connection of Inter-American Investment Corporation was Banco de Londres y Mexico, also known as the Bank of London in Mexico, called the Banco Serfin. This Banco or “Bank” tied in with ALL European Banks and banks of the United States. Mr. Greenspan, Mr. Bush, Mr. North, Mr. Baker,

Mr. Wright, Mr. Bentsen and all presidents since the Kennedy administration, have been and are, allegedly, involved, as is Operation TROJAN.

It is beyond comprehension that the U.S. Government would “loan” buy-in moneys to these Contra nations for capital shares in this Inter-American Investment Corporation and then keep on lending the Contra nations money while they put U.S. dollars “loaned” to them into Swiss accounts, or into accounts in Liechtenstein.

This Inter-American Investment Corporation and then keep on lending the Contra's and underwriting the AL QAEDA alleged to be a WASHINGTON, D.C. IN HOUSE OPERATION.

This brings about the GIGA or CIGA GRAND CAYMAN ACCOUNTS


THE PAPER TRAILS have been systematically destroyed while bankers involved have been systematically murdered to "COVER UP THE CONTRAS ACTIVITIES" around the world..

As the "fed" considers to sell it's own DEBTS


"CORRUPTION" you can believe in!

Obama off to Clintonesque` start.











Green Machinations?

For one young Brit, exploring the world is no fun if you can't save it, too. On an 8,000-mile sail across the Pacific in a boat made of bottles, he will prove that one man's trash is another's pleasure. By Hudson Morgan

David de Rothschild

Some years ago, the 29-year-old British explorer David de Rothschild endured that universal male ritual of telling his father what he wanted to do with his life.

It could have been potentially awkward because 1) his father is Sir Evelyn de Rothschild, former captain of the British branch of the fabled family banking empire, and 2) David wanted to save the world rather than buy and sell it. "I started in natural medicine and for a while my dad was like, 'You're a naturist?'" de Rothschild recalls. "And I'm like, 'No, no, I'm a naturopath. Naturists get naked and run around the woods. I'm sure that's kind of fun, but, um, no.'"

Sure, with his shoulder-length hair, trustafarian beard, and faded Converse sneakers, de Rothschild could be mistaken for one of those patchouli-scented dudes praying for a Phish reunion tour. But as he explains his grand designs over breakfast at San Francisco's Clift Hotel, it's clear that exploring the globe is only the first step in his quest to improve it. Not content to simply brave the Arctic Ocean, be the youngest Brit to reach both poles, and set a speed record for traversing the Greenland ice cap, de Rothschild has added a green twist: He started Adventure Ecology, an organization that shares his expeditions with kids and tweens on the Web to spread environmental activism. The idea is that they'll tell their friends, teachers, and parents. Call it trickle-up eco-nomics.

"The stumbling block of the whole green movement is that there has been this slightly exclusive, sanctimonious air about it," de Rothschild says. "You feel intimidated. It's like, 'What are you doing?' It makes you feel guilty." His other peeve is the braver-than- thou genre of modern exploration, which he feels is counterproductive to tree-huggery. "If you're watching a documentary, " he says, "and some guy is sitting in a tent and going" — he switches to a mountain-man burr — " 'I'm barely surviving here, and it's miserable,' you think: 'That looks miserable. Why the hell would I want to protect that place?'"

De Rothschild's next Adventure Ecology mission, in December, is his most ambitious yet: a four-month, 8,000-mile voyage from San Francisco to Australia in a 60-foot sailboat made of post-consumer plastic bottles. Dubbed the Plastiki (à la Thor Heyerdahl — get it?), the trip will spotlight the desecration of the oceans by trash, oil, and other unsavory man-mades. "What people don't know is that a lot of Western countries send their waste to Asia to be sorted out," de Rothschild says. "That's how trash ends up in our oceans. There are now practically more floating containers in our oceans than there are whales."

A few perils await the six-man crew, including treacherous weather, currents, and, of course, the possibility that the boat could split apart and become its own environmental disaster. I ask if de Rothschild is avoiding films like The Perfect Storm and Dead Calm. "When I was in Antarctica, somebody was like, 'You really must watch Touching the Void,'" he says, laughing. "I'm like, 'Why would I want to do that?' I guess it's the same with this." At least he won't have to worry about pirates on the high seas: "I think they'll take one look at our vessel and go, 'They're fucking crazy.'"

De Rothschild's taste for the untamed is born of his upbringing on the family's country estate an hour north of London, where he rode horses with his Olympic equestrian uncle and generally ran amok. "I have my teachers to thank because they often got so pissed off at me that they'd send me out of the classroom, to where I wanted to be — outside." After getting a graduate degree in natural medicine, he decamped to an organic farm in New Zealand for a bit of the examined life. These days his home base is a modest house outside of London, where he lives with his "two girls," a Staffordshire bull terrier named Smudge and a little schnauzer named Nesta.

As to whether there's an actual human girl in the equation, de Rothschild errs on the side of caginess. Even though he was once rumored to knock Birkenstocks with Cameron Diaz and Tatler ranked him ahead of Prince Harry on its eligible bachelor list, de Rothschild still seems bewildered by the tabloid glare. "It's frustrating because it cheapens what you do," he says. "People want to know who I'm dating rather than what expedition I'm doing. If you position yourself anywhere near the public eye, people will feel like they have a sense of ownership over you, and want to know every detail." He pauses, and as if channeling Ricky Gervais, continues: "What did you have for breakfast?" "Cold porridge." "What color are your boxer shorts?" "White."

De Rothschild is savvy enough to know that his gilded pedigree — and the Sasquatch-size carbon footprint from frequent flying around the world to promote his cause — exposes him to charges of insincerity. "People will snipe," he says. "I'm not perfect by any means. My CO2 output is more than most because of the lifestyle I lead, but it's less than it could be. But what would you rather I do? Just sit back and consume? I want to maximize my social impact and make a difference, and that's why I do what I do." He smiles. "I could very easily not."

After breakfast, de Rothschild and I take a cab to the Port Commission for a sit-down with a city official (How many entrepreneurs do you know who show up at a business meeting wearing a North Face backpack?) and then walk along the Embarcadero to the Plastiki build site. "He was frosty at first," de Rothschild says of the guy's perhaps understandable reluctance to lease waterfront property to a recycled ark. "And then the mayor, Gavin Newsom, came along and said this is a good thing." De Rothschild is well aware that on a day-to-day basis he's less like Sir Edmund Hillary and more like, well, Senator Hillary. "I like to moisturize, I like fluffy pillows, and I can't do a one-armed push-up," he admits. "I'm the first person to say I'm not a hero." Plus, being close to his BlackBerry allows him to stay in the loop on his upcoming projects: a sail through the South China Sea, an expedition to Africa in '09, and an "edutainment" pilot for NBC.
We reach Pier 31, a hangar-like enclosure with high wood rafters and industrial bay doors opening onto the shipyard. The location is quintessential San Francisco: The Bay Bridge hangs to the east, the Transamerica Pyramid just to the south, and the ferry to Alcatraz — de Rothschild swam the hazardous route a few years ago — is next door. (The Plastiki's construction will become its own attraction for disposable-camera tourists flocking to Fisherman's Wharf.) He may even shack up in an Airstream on the premises whenever he's in town supervising the project, and he plans to throw a launch party here come December. Will there be a nautical costume theme? "I'm not sure we'd want to do a maritime theme in San Francisco," de Rothschild replies. "We might end up with lots of, um, sailor boys. Might be the wrong kind of party. But at least it'd be interesting. "
