(Jul. 2, 2017) — The Deep State finds its spawn in Tennessee. It was in the Volunteer State where the first planting and harvest occurred. Tennessee is one place where laws go to die.
In an act of arrogant, purposeful discrimination, Tennessee criminal court judges unconstitutionally “handpick” the thirteenth member of Tennessee county grand juries. Then, judges unlawfully “anoint” the special member as the “foreman” of the assembled group.
Citizens possessed of the temerity to force introductions of outlaw government actors to their criminal consequences are instead arrested by agents of the rogue government.
In an act of supremacy obedient to their foreign government, agents willfully compliant, exercising their treasonous system, arrest citizens attempting to defend our recognized state and federal Constitutions.
The treasonous government authorities then illegally prosecute and lock up those defenders of our American way of life.
Meanwhile, absent the protection of a grand jury, innocents are being wrongfully prosecuted, convicted and incarcerated in service to a prisoner-for-profit business model which is being increasingly privatized.
Absent the scope and operation of a constitutionally-formed and operating grand jury, tyrants are free in their treasonous administration of U.S. government arrogantly confident no force exists strong enough to stop them.
Present-day legal controlling authority: Three federal courts have ruled handpicking the grand jury foremen in Tennessee is discriminatory.[i]
The United States Supreme Court ruled on this date in 1979: The ritual whereupon Tennessee criminal court judges engage in, with a particular purpose in mind, to carefully single out particular persons to fill the position of county grand jury foreman, is unconstitutional and impermissible.[ii]
In each review federal jurists concluded, respecting the method used in appointing Tennessee grand jury foremen, the opportunity for discrimination was to be inherent in the selection process.
Federal judges ordered and otherwise allowed Tennessee officials to explain their atrocious activity. But there was no response. In this moment, there remains no Tennessee answer to the federal courts.
It is therefore a settled matter: dispositive. State and federal authorities are in full agreement with each other on this point: Grand jury foreman shopping and appointment is unconstitutional and outlawed.
No room is left to polemic.
Still, the cherry-picking of Tennessee county grand jury foremen continues in full force. I explain why below.
Discrimination in the judges’ personal selection of county grand jury foremen in Tennessee is the operation of a government competing with both state and federal Constitutions.
Stacking Tennessee county grand juries is an act of treason.
In Tennessee, we find the rule of man operating in fact (de facto), having successfully replaced the rule of law (de jure).
Federal government officials are complicit and compromised in Tennessee’s grand jury racket. Tennessee is where the Deep State’s roots run deepest.
Witness-tampering, witness-influencing, evidence-tampering, misprision of felony offenses, intimidation, harassment, extortion, exercise of undue influence, abuse of power, in part, populate a list of criminal activities which can be charged against those responsible for the ongoing grand jury criminal adventure.
In practical terms, as I’m about to show, this renders void every indictment and presentment issued by an outlawed Tennessee grand jury where it can be demonstrated a Tennessee criminal court judge personally and selectively chose and then installed the grand jury foreman.
Not voidable. They are void!
