Gary Kreep, US Justice Foundation
Gary Kreep is one of the top lawyers in Birtherstan.
- Kreep and Taitz together actually filed one of the first Birther lawsuits (Filed on January 20, 2009 -- Barnet/Keyes v Obama). Kreep RECRUITED Taitz. This case in scheduled for the US Supreme Court's cert conference on June, 2012. Taitz and Kreep had a huge falling out, with Kreep taking several of the "major" plaintiffs with him. (Including Baptist Minister Wyley Drake, who had publicly prayed for the death of President Obama, and Alan Keyes.)
- In 2009, Kreep was featured in the “Birthermercial” — a television infomercial hosted by televangelist Bill Keller — which asked: “Where was President Obama born?”
- Kreep is mentioned in the 2009 April Fool's spoof from the nonexistent organization "Americans for Freedom of Information" chain letter. This may be the origin of the meme that Obama spent millions of dollars hiding his records.
- Kreep was sanctioned for filing a frivolous lawsuit against Planned Parenthood in 2003.
- Kreep served a "demand letter" on Occidental College for them to release President Obama's records, a moved that was quashed by Obama's lawyer.
- Kreep defended Taitz's boyfriend when he sued Orly and her husband. (The boyfriend was Charles E/ Lincoln II, disbarred attorney who was writing briefs for Taitz while "examining her briefs" on the side.)
- Kreep claims to have initiated the first "Teabag" campaign.
- More on Kreep:
Back in the mid 1970s, Gary Kreep spearheaded a national tea bag-based movement to protest the Ford Administration’s tax policies, he confirmed to TPMmuckraker today.
“To protest unreasonably high taxes, people stapled tea bags to their tax returns,” explains Kreep, now director of the United States Justice Foundation, but then a law student and an officer in the California chapter of the Reaganite Young Americans for Freedom...

Right Wing Watch: Right-wing activist and former California legislator Steve Baldwin has organized an open letter to “Conservative, Catholic and Evangelical Leaders” asking them to refuse support for Mitt Romney’s campaign for president. Already a number of activists including failed US Senate candidate and Tea Party hero Joe Miller; Rick Scarborough of Vision America; Brian Camenker of MassResistance; Linda Harvey of Mission America; Michael Farris of the Home School Legal Defense Association; Ted Beahr of WND and Movieguide; Gary Glenn of American Family Association-Michigan, Kelly Shackleford of the Liberty Institute; Gary Kreep of the United States Justice Foundation; Floyd Brown of WND; Dick and Richard Bott of Bott Family Radio, and the leaders of a number of anti-choice groups have signed the letter.
The letter says that “a Romney candidacy would be disastrous for the conservative movement and for the country,” writing that he is insincere in his conservative beliefs and “continues to support many aspects of the homosexual agenda even today.” The activists claim that “the flatly illegal charade of ‘gay’ marriage exists solely in Massachusetts due to Governor Romney’s illegal actions,” and lists numerous other issues including abortion rights and health care reform where Romney has reversed himself: “Romney has also been both in favor and against minimum wage legislation, capital gains taxes, gun control, amnesty for illegal aliens, campaign finance reform, the Kyoto agreement, gambling, gun control, and many other issues.”
They conclude by warning that nominating Romney “would be a disastrous mistake”...

We already knew that Vision America's Rick Scarborough, who recently spoke at the How To Take Back America Conference, was a Birther. But we were not aware of the fact that the organization was also actively involved in the various lawsuits, but it looks like that is the case since they just used their email list to send out this fundraising pitch from Gary Kreep and the United States Justice Foundation:
"Thanks to you and patriots like you, like David versus Goliath, we, working with others, have been able to make a national issue over whether or not Barack Obama is a natural born U.S. citizen.
Yes, we have been smeared as “birthers” and “right-wing nuts.” But the fact is, thanks to our efforts, and those of our allies in this fight, more and more Americans are asking themselves the same questions we’ve been asking for months.
And those questions are: 1)“Why won’t Barack Obama produce his birth certificate?”; 2)“What is he afraid of?”; and 3)“What is he hiding?”
But, while we’ve been successful in educating millions of Americans on the serious questions swirling around Mr. Obama’s eligibility to be President, we’ve also earned the full wrath of the Obama machine.
And, while we have thus far been able to fend off the lies and the smears, we are now facing a do-or-die moment.
That moment will come at 8:30 AM on Monday, October 5 .
That is the time that the United States District Court for the Central District of California, Southern Division, will hear a Department of Justice (DOJ) motion to dismiss a lawsuit that we’ve recently become a part of, demanding Barack Obama release records that could prove –- or disprove -– his U.S. citizenship...
I believe that we have a responsibility -- no, A DUTY -- to verify whether the man occupying the White House is eligible to serve as President!
I have thus dedicated this organization, and all of its resources, to do just that, both in the court of law and in the court of public opinion.
FAX BLAST ASKING STATES TO INVESTIGATE ELIGIBILITY
Just as Barack Obama’s Aug. 4 birthday is approaching, a law firm handling one of the legal challenges to his eligibility to be president is arranging for a fax blast to attorneys general in all 50 states pointing out their obligation to investigate possible perjury during the 2008 election.
The campaign is being run by Gary Kreep and the United States Justice Foundation, which is handling a lawsuit against Obama on behalf of former Ambassador Alan Keyes.
The fax messages cite evidence that suggests Obama may have been born in what now is Kenya.
But the United States Constitution clearly says only a ‘natural born citizen’ may be elected president,” the message states. “I hope and pray that you will do your duty by fully investigating whether Barack Obama committed perjury, or violated another state law by falsely claiming that he was constitutionally eligible to serve as president of the United States!”
The message to attorneys general says:"It is critical that your office fully investigate whether Barack Obama was born in Hawaii or not, for the answer to this question is the crux of the matter, and is of the utmost importance for the resolution of this extremely important constitutional issue.
“Your duty as state attorney general requires you to fully and faithfully enforce the laws of [your state]. If Barack Obama did indeed falsify his nomination papers, as appears likely, he must be brought to account.
The organization said in its promotion that according to published reports, “Barack Obama’s legal team has been paid over one million dollars, so far, to stop anyone from seeing any of his actual identification documents, or many other documents.”
Its case, which is pending on appeal, originally sought to obtain Obama’s records from California’s Occidental College.
“The issue of the Occidental College records is especially pertinent. The United States Justice Foundation served officials at Occidental College with a subpoena to produce records concerning Barack Obama’s attendance there during the 1980’s, because those records could document whether he was attending as a foreign national,” the report said.
“You see, Mr. Obama attended the school on a scholarship; and there are questions as to whether the financial aid he received was reserved for foreign students. The Obama attorneys have bent over backward to block us. He doesn’t want anyone to see those records. He’s still trying to hide them; those financial records still have not been released.”
The United States Justice Foundation (USJF) is funding this project, and USJF Executive Director Gary Kreep will be co-counsel in this case.
Birthermercial: Where was Barack Obama Really Born?
A new birther infomercial running on a CBS affiliate in Texas and elsewhere around the country tells viewers a “got a birth certificate?” bumper sticker can be theirs for the low price of $30.
The 28-minute program — quite possibly the first ever birthermercial — features community access production values, heavy use of foreboding strings soundtrack, and standard-issue Birther ideology.
For a $30 contribution, viewers also get a fax sent in their name to the 50 state attorneys general and Attorney General Eric Holder demanding that President Obama produce his real birth certificate.
One of the men behind the infomercial is attorney Gary Kreep, executive director of the Ramona, CA-based Birther group United States Justice Foundation.
