Dear friend of liberty,
During the last two months while Congress was on their
we made several important changes.
1. New Name: Liberty Study Committee is now The
Liberty Committee. We
dropped "Study" from our name because many people
perceived our purpose
to be research instead of action. To make our purpose
even clearer, we
adopted a new motto: "Political action from
principle." We're in the
process of having our name, logo and motto trademarked.
2. New Web Site: Our new Web site address is
http://www.thelibertycommittee.org. We've implemented
many of your
suggestions and will be implementing more of your
suggestions in the
3. On September 7th during the United Nations
Millennium Summit, we
participated in a successful news conference with Rep. Ron
Paul and Rep.
Helen Chenoweth-Hage and representatives from American
Sovereignty International and America's Survival. We
petitions calling for the U.S. to withdraw from the United
those of the other organizations present. Over 300,000
delivered to Speaker Dennis Hastert's office. We made
brilliant, 17-page analysis of H.R. 1146 written by Herbert
W. Titus our
senior legal advisor. Mr. Titus states, "The
Charter of the United
Nations is neither politically nor legally binding upon the
States of America or the American people." Mr.
Titus' analysis can be
read on our new Web site. The news conference was
broadcast twice by C-SPAN. C-SPAN advertised the
program as "Discussion
on U.S. Withdrawal from the United Nations."
4. On September 9th, I presented "Constitutional
Threats from Executive
Orders" to the Eagle Forum's Annual Leadership
Conference. Many of the
participants pledged to help pass H.R. 2655-The Separation
Restoration Act and S. 1795-The Executive Orders Limitation
We have two important events planned for the next two weeks
as well as
several action items to be accomplished between now and the
election. Updates will be sent to explain.
Please go to our new Web site
take advantage of the changes we've made. We've set up
a new database
system that will automatically sort our list of activists by
congressional district. We can now send specialized
alerts to specific
districts so that we can more productively target our

The next two months will be very busy. We've worked
the last two months
to be prepared for it.
