From retired criminal Magistrate Steven Neuenschwander to judge Land

The Honorable Judge Clay Land

120 12th Street

PO Box 124

Columbus, Georgia



Dear Honorable Judge Land,


I have been an officer of the courts for over thirty years.  In that time I have never seen a total disregard to our constitutional laws and a blatant disrespect for the robe you wear as I have seen in your actions in the recent case of Capt Rhodes.


As a justice of the federal courts, you of all persons, should by now recognize the importance of the solemn oath you have taken to protect not only the constitution but the citizenry of which it serves.  You want to threaten and intimidate a counsel for the plaintiff that has spent thousands of tireless hours representing her clients pro bono to include Captain Rhodes with sanctions and fines, while you display a total disregard to the rule of law.  You sir are a disgrace to your office, the privileged robe you wear as a symbol of that office and to the citizens of the United States who by delegation of their sacred vote have allowed your appointment to that court. 


You have not only a legal, moral, and ethical responsibility to uphold the office of your appointment but to the Constitution as well as the origin of its existence.  Any layman can read Article 1 of the Constitution and quickly ascertain the relevance and intent of the founders of that treasured document.  An intent so adamantly addressed to ensure that this republic can stand regardless of the tyranny it may face in the future.  Based on your actions I am left with only two logical conclusions.


Perhaps your political will is so far left and off stream of the intent and will of the Constitution you simply are not able to effectively administer the position of your appointment.  If that be the case, then you have a moral and legal obligation to remove yourself and let the citizens delegate appointment to a more worthy candidate.


Perhaps you are under political duress by threats or intimidation upon yourself or your family.  If that be the case, while we sympathize with your dilemma, it is time to stand up and be counted.


Captain Rhodes and tens of thousands other Americans stand in arms way as they serve to protect and defend this country against all enemies foreign and domestic.  They sacrifice with little regard to their own personal safety so that others, like you, may continue to enjoy the protection granted by the Constitution.  You sir, if you are unable to stand up against those that threaten you are simply a coward.  A person, when called by both God and Country has decided to hide behind an artificial symbol, your robe, and desecrate the flag, the Constitution and the public you serve.


I know not which scenario you apply.  However, regardless, you are directed by your oath of office to adjudicate, provide due process and ensure right of grievance as protected rights under the provisions of the Constitution of the United States of America.


I await, your honor, for you to stand tall and brave and have the “right stuff” and dismiss your show cause against Attorney Taitz and permit her plaintiff the due process and right to address grievance as provided under American law.

    How wonderfully you write what all of us are thinking about this judge. All that comes to mind is, “Why could not Dr. Orly have had you be the Judge instead of coward Judge Land?” God Bless you for writing to this judge and for taking up for our Constitution, Our Republic and Dr. Orly. You, sir, are a truly great Patriot!

    The facts are that the incompetent judge probably wants a seat on the supreme court, wouldn’t one believe? He is not with no doubt kissing the rat’s ass in hope of obtaining a seat on SCOTUS.

    Why else would a LAZY worthless judge not want to review case history to learn how acts taken to protect the system have had the unintended consequences occur; where the consequences are that the People’s will have been set aside to accommodate the SCREWED UP BUREAUCRACY.

    I like this letter, and clearly, it applies to more than just Judge Land. It’s time all American’s, stand up and be counted, regardless of political party, it’s God and the Constitution that unites us as a nation, without them, we are lost and doomed.

    Dr. Taitz,
    At the risk of becoming a “spoiler of sorts”, please clear one thing up for me. I am willing and able to accept the letter as “Gospel”, but I just did a search on the name Steven K. Neuenschwander, Magistrate, but came up with a similar name , MSGT. Steven Kay Neuenschwander, one of the Plaintiffs on one of your lawsuits…..interesting, to say the least… Please advise, and thanks for all your work,

    Judge Neuenschwander’s rebuke to Judge Land for Land’s judicial misconduct in Orly’s Rhodes case–his abdication of responsibility and his abuse of office–is eloquent testimony that it is Land. not Orly Taitz, who has erred here.

    Neuenschwander’s last paragraph is especially powerful when he cites “the due process and right to address grievance” that have been denied to the American people by judicial cowardice and imbalance.

    Speaking of imbalance, the fact that Obama has stood back and let public discord and confusion over his birth status persist so long is prima facie evidence of his mental incompetence. A reasonable and prudent person would have long ago produced a certified birth certificate to responsible government officials for inspection. If Obama were sane, he would either prove he is a natural born citizen or resign. Otherwise, he should be removed as mentally unfit for office.

    National Archives Certificate of Ascertainment where Obama is said to be CONSTITUTIONALLY qualified to be POTUS it’s a LIE


    2008 HAWAII Certificate of Ascertainment in the National Archives.
    saying Constitutionally Qualified candidates.

    ALSO 2004 False Claim a FEDERAL CRIME>.

    2004 Hawaii Electoral College Certificate of Ascertainment…
    It has the statement saying Constitutional Qualified. I suppose one can view the Certificates of VOTE at this website.
    The SOS are mandated to provide these certificates PRIOR to the electoral vote counting so that there won’t be any nefarious activities to change the votes.

    The letters being sent to him are wonderful. I sent one out to him, with some very troubling articles on Mr. Obama, so he could perhaps educate himself on the horrible risk this man poses to this country. I have a brother who served along with Captain Scott Speicher in the Gulf War. His remains were found in early August after 18 years. I’ve also like many of you, had other family members who proudly served this Nation so people like Judge Land can continue to live a free, peaceful, life, without fear of other 9/11’s happening again. He betrayed the position he holds, the Constitution, and Captain Rhodes. He has betrayed this country. History, will not speak well of him.

    I am sending you what Donofrio says about discovery with your case– Barnett v. Obama: Important Discovery Is Available Now According To Judge Carter’s Order of Sept. 17, 2009.
    Posted in Uncategorized on September 17, 2009 by naturalborncitizen

    [UPDATED: 9:45 AM. Upates in strikeout and red ink.]

    Today, Judge Carter issued a limited discovery order pertaining to the case of Barnett v. Obama. Judge Carter’s order stated:

    All discovery herein shall be stayed pending resolution of Defendants’ Motion to Dismiss, except for any discovery as to which Plaintiffs can demonstrate, to the satisfaction of Magistrate Judge Nakazato, is necessary for the purpose of opposing the Motion to Dismiss.

    Regarding that order, one of my astute readers (Joe The Blogger) asked the following question which led me to write this post:


    What do you think about taking advantage of Judge Carter’s Order for limited discovery…Surely there is SOME scope here for forcing SOME information out of the DOJ?

    While reading Judge Carter’s limited discovery order, the following passage caught my eye:

    In this case, Defendants have alleged that the Court lacks subject matter jurisdiction for various reasons, including that the case presents a non-justiciable political question that is properly addressed by the legislative branch of government, not the judicial branch. Defendants’ Motion to Dismiss at 11.

    As you know, Judge Carter agreed to stay discovery until the motion to dismiss was resolved regarding whether the district court has subject matter jurisdiction.

    With Judge Carter’s reasoning guiding my analysis, I carefully examined the DOJ motion to dismiss paying special attention to the arguments made starting on page 11. When I got to page 13, I found something interesting:

    Under 3 U.S.C. § 15, Congress is directed to be in session on the appropriate date to count the electoral votes for President, with the President of the Senate presiding. The statute further directs that the electoral votes be counted, and then the results be presented to the President of the Senate, who shall then “announce the state of the vote.” The statute then provides a mechanism for objections to be registered and resolved in the following language:

    “[e]very objection shall be made in writing,and shall state clearly and concisely, and without argument, the ground thereof, and shall be signed by at least one Senator and one Member of the House of Representatives before the same shall be received. When all objections so made . . . shall have been received and read, the Senate shall thereupon withdraw, and such objections shall be submitted to the Senate for its decision; and the Speaker of the House of Representatives shall, in like manner, submit such objections to the House of Representatives for its decision.”

    That’s an interesting quote… interesting for what the DOJ left out.

    They conveniently cut the statute off when they bring it into the brief. The uncensored passage from 3 U.S.C. § 15 states:

    Upon such reading of any such certificate or paper, the President of the Senate shall call for objections, if any. Every objection shall be made in writing, and shall state clearly and concisely, and without argument, the ground thereof…

    The DOJ clipped the statute so as to leave out the part which places a burden on the Vice President, acting in his role as President of the Senate, to call for objections after the count of votes.

    Vice President Cheney failed to call for objections as the statute requires.

    (See the You Tube video of the 2009 electoral vote count at about the 27:00 minute mark.)

    The DOJ motion to dismiss relies upon separation of powers and the political question doctrine alleging the district court has no authority to entertain the case. In doing so, the DOJ cites specifically 3 U.S.C. § 15 as proof that challenges to the President’s eligibility are provided for by Congress.

    This is true, but those provisions were not properly followed on January 8, 2009 when the votes for Obama were counted. And the district court therefore does have jurisdiction to review a failure of the Government to follow the laws enacted to protect the integrity of the electoral process.

    There are, as usual, many opinions as to why the specific letter of the law was not carried out and a call for objections made. But I see no official explanation available to the public.

    Therefore, since the issue was specifically raised by the DOJ motion to dismiss in a quotation which fails to provide the court with the full context of the law cited, I see no reason why the court should deny the plaintiffs discovery on this particular issue.

    Since the DOJ raised the statute and relied upon it for the motion to dismiss, and since Judge Carter has allowed immediate discovery necessary for purposes of opposing the motion to dismiss, Orly should demand discovery of the following:

    1. Since no call for objections was made, each member of Congress and the Senate should be served with interrogatories requesting deposed as to whether they would object on the basis of Obama’s eligibility.


    Got that? Make it broad, not specific.

    – Some may have objections to his admission of British birth.

    – Some may have objections regarding his place of birth.

    Don’t limit the interrogatories deposition to any specific objection. Just ask each Representative or Senator whether they would object to Obama’s eligibility.

    The Constitution does not require a birth certificate be offered. The Constitution does require that the President be a natural born citizen. The interrogatories should be simple. For example:

    Dear Congressman Ron Paul – Had Vice President Cheney called for objections after the counting of electoral votes as is required by 3 U.S.C. § 15, would you have objected?

    That’s sufficient as written. Send that to each Senator and Representative.

    Usually depositions are limited to a certain amount, but the court may order depositions as well if the court is convinced they are necessary. In this case, the deposititons would be very short, just a few minutes each.

    2. Interrogatories should be issued which question Cheney should be deposed as to why he didn’t call for objections as was required by the statute.

    Depending on the answers in those interrogatories depostions, the court might order the Senate and Representatives to meet for the purpose of hearing a call for objections.

    After all, if the Government is going to cite 3 U.S.C. § 15 as evidence that the process of approving the President’s eligibility belongs to Congress, then the plaintiffs ought to be entitled to the protection of the statute by an enforcement of the duties specifically prescribed therein.

    District courts do have the power to issue a writ of mandamus to compel a ministerial duty owed. Calling for objections was a ministerial duty owed – that was not performed.

    In my opinion, this is the best chance of getting any meaningful discovery approved.

    I emailed it to you, but you said you get 80K emails.

    The only thing wrong with this letter is that its author is retired!

    We need more judges like Neuenschwander.

    But his letter points out a problem that is glaringly obvious in all parts of the country, the loss of the sense of honor.

    All these folks attacking whatever lawyer does something to challenge the Usurper, are egomanics who want the spotlight and cannot stand success in others hands..

    I am sad to admit that there are many such cooks in the “birther movement”…

    But many follow them, because they have no sense of honor themselves, and cannot see integrity in a person like Dr. Taitz, which is glaringly evident…

    I commend you for your restraint in your letter to Judge Land. While I previously noted that his conduct may have paved the way for Dr. Taitz to pursue discovery, it doesn’t lessen the obscene nature of his ruling in the face of the most serious assault our Constitutional Republic has had to face since the War Between The States.

    What an exciting letter, Orly, from a criminal magistrate no less! I am so glad to see all your supporters writing Judge Land. I am sure it will make a big difference to Judge Land when you tell him hwere he can stuff it on October 2, 2009. We are all waiting for your response, Orly. Be sure to tell the judge where to stuff it and that you want RULE 11 DISCOVERY to show your claims were all valid!

    By the way, is this criminal magistrate also the Master Sergeant who is a plaintiff in the Barnett case?

    With all of his experience, Orly why don’t you allow the criminal magistrate to represent you in Judge Land’s court on the order to show cause. That way you won’t have to sully yourself by appearing before Judge Land again. I think the criminal magistrate can say it all for your case based on how and what he writes.

    God Blress Lady Liberty, the amazing Orly taitz!

    Why can’t we have more judges like Magistrate Neuenschwander? He didn’t even go to law school and still he can run rings around that traitor Land!

    Civis, Judges are appointed for life. He may be “retired” but is so only in that he chooses not to take any cases at this time. Judge Neuenschwanger can,at any time,take a case or sevral cases,as he sees fit. Justice Sandra day O’Connor,”retired” from SCOTUS but now serves on the Second Circuit hearing cases.

    Am.First, I like that “Flip this House” phrase. Can I use it in the same context?

    To who will read this! I want to know, how is it that this Self loving non US citizen, Marxist, Muslim, terrorist, narcissist, want to be dictator got to the highest Office in the United States of America! Are not there departments in our government that are supposed to have checked out all candidates before he got to this point. Obviously not! This mess up leaves use in a hell of a position! If we do nothing to remove this usurper, I fear that because he is not legally capable of holding the Office of President, that we then will have a dictator, that is no longer responsible to the people, but will have the power to take use, and rule use right into some new world order of his and his administrations liking. With his and his administrations last less than 12 months in illegally usurped time in office, with the appointment of czar’s, the ACORN debacle, having total power to fire CEO’s of any company they chose! I think after watching all his speeches on the international apology tour’s that he has been on, that they are setting up there administration and use to become the cash cow for the rest of the world! Well I hope that the rest of you can see this headlong dash to get this administrations goals accomplished before every one catches on, or we can recover our wonderful United States of America! I say these Marxist, Communist, Modern Progressives need to be stopped in their tracks, before we wake up and find that we have been totally taken over by our enemies from the United Nations, and this administration including the white house! I hope that before you close your eyes every night that you as I do say a little prayer to stave off the evil ones that want to see us destroyed!
