The Revival of the Common Law Grand Jury

“A PANEL OF ORDINARY CITIZENS” TO STAND AGAINST GOVERNMENT TYRANNY

April 1, 2014

Dear Editor,

There is a misperception in the United States about who this country belongs to. Our government servants operate as though they are the owners. But they are incorrect.

Think about our Revolutionary War and who the victors were. Not the sovereign King of England and his British troops. It was We The People of this country who declared our independence and replaced the King of England. Thus We The People became the sovereigns of the United States.  We are the ones who own it, not government servants. Our government was created by an act of The People; therefore, the creation cannot trump the creator.

Another misperception is that there are three branches of government:  the Executive, the Legislative, and the Judicial. That, too, is incorrect. In actuality, there are four branches, with We The People forming the fourth branch.

Writing for the Majority in a 6 to 3 decision, Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia confirmed that the Citizen’s grand jury (common law grand jury) is neither part of the judicial, executive, nor legislative branches of government, but instead belongs to the people. It is a buffer between The People and their government. It is, in effect, a fourth branch of government “governed” and administered to directly by and on behalf of the American people, and its authority emanates from the Bill of Rights, particularly the Fifth Amendment. See Supreme Court case United States -v- Williams, 1992.

Coming very soon to your county is the Common Law Grand Jury, a panel of ordinary citizens. Not a panel of persons hand-picked by the government
and BAR members (lawyers, the District Attorney or judges), but a panel of your neighbors, also known as your peers. This is a panel by which the citizens’ voices may be heard. It is the place in which the citizens consent to be governed on their terms, not those dictated to them by government servants. Ours is, after all, a government of, by, and for The People.

In order for common law grand juries to be a successful undertaking, we first must seek the blessings from “the Governor of the Universe” and build our endeavor upon Him and His principles:  (1) Honor, (2) Justice, and (3) Mercy, and they are guided by two common law maxims:  1) without a victim, there is no crime and 2) for every injury there must be a remedy. This is the only sure foundation. Any other will succumb to tyrants. It is His principles, descended from the Bible to the Magna Carta down to the Bill of Rights, that will lead us to a society more likely to be devoid of corruption and a society more likely to benefit the entire population.

Justice James Wilson, in 1790, said; “The (Common Law) Jury is an important instrument of government, a great conduit of communication between those who make and administer the laws and the People. All the operations of government and all its officers come before the scrutiny of Juries, thereby giving them an unrivaled ability to advocate public improvements and expose corruption in government.”

A wise person said, “The silence of good people is all that is required for evil to succeed.” Or, as Martin Luther King, Jr. said, “He who accepts evil without protesting against it is really cooperating with it.” The silence needs to end. Only The People Can Save America! Will You?
