In a 2011 fundraising letter for USJF, Kreep suggested that the president is a ‘stealth jihadist,’ Marxist, and ‘strident enemy of America,’ who ‘is working to destroy our sovereign republic.’
Gary Kreep, a longtime antigovernment activist, ‘birther’ and hate group leader who uses anti-Obama rhetoric as a proxy for anti-Muslim hate, has emerged victorious in a tight race for a seat on San Diego’s Superior Court, the San Diego Union-Tribune reports.
Kreep, who received the San Diego County Bar Association’s lowest rating of ‘lacking qualifications,’ beat opponent Garland Peed, a deputy district attorney of 27 years who received the county bar association’s highest rating and who was supported by local police unions and sitting judges.
The San Diego Superior Court is part of the state’s trial court system, which handles a wide variety of cases, including civil lawsuits and felony criminal cases. Kreep will serve a six-year term and earn an annual salary of $178,789.

It appears Gary Kreep is about to make history.
Just weeks after the U.S. Supreme Court denied him a hearing on his birth certificate case against President Obama, it looks like the conservative constitutional attorney will land a seat on the Superior Court bench in San Diego county.
Voters countywide have given him a lead of 1,569 votes over highly endorsed longtime Deputy District Attorney Garland Peed, with 1,000 ballots countywide still to be counted. His lead is less than 1 percent.
Peed was endorsed by many the Superior Court judges and had been given a high qualification ranking by the San Diego County Bar Association. The Bar Association gave Kreep a low ranking, noting that his opinions were swayed too much by his religious beliefs.
Kreep heads up the U.S. Justice Foundation, a conservative political group based in Ramona, which has nationwide support.

From Source Watch: Gary Kreep on “Political Assassinations”:
Political Assassinations ‘OK’
In October 2001 the conservative online news service WorldNetDaily reported on a paper written by Gary Kreep, the executive director of the group, and Richard D. Ackerman, the then litigation counsel for the organization supporting the lifting of the executive orders 11905 and 12333, signed by President Gerald Ford in 1976, that banned political assassinations.
The report cited an article - not available online - which argued that “the use of violence in defense of the United States should be a right of the leaders of our nation. The right to assassinate a foreign leader is qualified by certain critical factors, including, but not limited to, reasonableness of the force or threat, the interests sought to be protected by the use of violence, and the personal morality of our leaders.
The revival of an ability to defend our nation by assassination of rogue leaders is more than justified given the present threats of biological, chemical and nuclear violence against the United States by foreign states.”
