Gordon Epperly v. Allen Weinstein



Case filed on June 11th 2007

Petitioner, Gordon Warren Epperly, petitions the Court for an Order in the Nature of Mandamus to be served upon Allen Weinstein as Archivist of the United States.



On December 27, 2007, Judge John W. Sedwick altered the purpose and intent of Petitioner’s “Petition for an Order in the Nature of Mandamus” and then dismissed his version of the Petition with “prejudice” for being “frivolous” and for being barred under the doctrine of “res judicata.”  The Petitioner, Gordon Warren Epperly, submitted a “Motion for Reconsideration” showing that this case is different than any other case brought before the Federal Courts and it is not frivolous.  At this time, the Judge has not ruled upon the Motion.

Judge John W. Sedwick took great pains to remind everyone that the U.S. Court of Appeals, Ninth Circuit sanctioned the Petitioner in the amount of $2,500.00 for questioning the ratification of the U.S. Constitution, 14th Amendment.  Since the time that I received Judge Sedwick’s Court Order to Dismiss, I have been informed that a sanction by the U.S. Court of Appeals in an amount of $10,000.00 or more may be expected if I appealed Judge Sedwick’s Court Order.  As I do not have the funds to pay the filing fee of $450.00 to file a “Notice of Appeal” nor am I in a position to pay monetary sanctions to Federal Judges, I will not be appealing the Court Order of John W. Sedwick.  It is an absurdity in law that fees and sanctions must be paid to any Public Official to give an answer as to why they are doing business outside the constraints of the U.S. Constitution.

It appears that Judge John W. Sedwick likes to play games.  He has full knowledge that he can stall the proceedings by having the case dragged through the Appellate Courts knowing that by the time the Appeal has been resolved, Allen Weinstein will no longer be Archivist of the United States.  If Allen Weinstein is no longer Archivist of the United States,  Judge Sedwick may dismiss the Petition for being “moot.”

What does this Court Order of Judge John W. Sedwick mean to you?   First, is  the pretended authority of Congress that was acquired from the enactment of the Reconstruction Acts of 1867 to declare that: (1) the Congress not only has the authority to propose Amendments to the U.S. Constitution, but the Congress also has the authority to compel each and every State of the Union to ratify those Amendments, and (2) the Congress has authority to authorize unlawful governments to cast votes of ratification on proposed Amendments, and (3) the Congress has authority to authorize non‑citizens of a State to hold Public Offices of a State and cast votes of ratification on proposed Amendments.

Second, is the Archivist of the United States now has the authority to count votes that are notOfficial” votes of a State that were cast upon proposed Amendments to the U.S. Constitution.  The Archivist of the United States also has the authority to pick and choose what votes will be counted and thus he may pick and choose what proposed Amendments will be Amendments to the U.S. Constitution.

This Court Order of John W. Sedwick has destroyed the U.S. Constitution.  The U.S. Constitution is now nothing more than a roll of toilet paper to wipe your ass with for it protects no one.  The  People are no longer allowed to Petition the Congress of the United States nor the Federal Courts for a redress of grievance when it comes to questioning Amendments to the U.S. Constitution.

Where does that leave the People?  It is obvious that the U.S. Constitution is no longer the property of the People, it is now the property of the BAR Associations and their Judges.  It is common knowledge that Pro Se litigants (as Plaintiffs in a Civil Action) have no standing in  Federal and State Courts unless they have paid a Tribute to the BAR Associations.  Can you now see why Pro Se litigants are dismissed from the Courts with the word: “frivolous.”

The argument presented in Exhibit “A” of this “Petition for an Order in the Nature of Mandamus” is sound and has not been disputed.  I can only hope that the Legislatures of the States of the Union will take a stand and demand that all the “Official” votes that were cast upon the   14th   Amendment to the U.S.  Constitution are to be counted and recorded.  I have done my best to expose the U.S. Constitution, 14th Amendment for what it is and there is nothing more that I can do.  The future of our Nation is now in your hands.
