People! People!

WHY have “We The People” let things get this far???

Take the case of the Hammonds in Oregon.1 If the jury had known (been informed of) their historical rights and DUTIES we would not now be witnessing this abuse of process, law, and authority, or this standoff.

So people of the JURY (of every jury): Get this into your consciousness: YOU are the chief vertical check and balance in the U.S. Constitution and the mainstay of preserving freedoms other people died to give you. It is your solemn DUTY to rule, not just on facts, but on law. YOU decide if the law is justly applicable to the case before you. If it is, then you rule on the facts. If it is not, YOU kick that law to the gutter. Your verdict of guilt or innocence is to be JUST. If the law works an injustice in the case before you, then YOU reject the application of that law to that case. It is called “Jury Nullification.”2

Furthermore, YOU do not take guff, haughtiness, superiority, refusal, denial, or abuse of any kind from any judge. He is the employee of “We The People.” He is there to help YOU, You are not there to help him. And because We The People have hired him for his skills (and we pray, integrity), he is derelict to refuse information relevant to YOUR duties and the consequences that might flow from any and all decisions you, the jury, make.

When you look upon any judge, do not be intimidated. She is YOUR employee. She answers to YOU. You ask her something, she is to answer fully, competently, and honestly, hiding nothing. Expect nothing less. Accept nothing less. Be as aggressive as you need to get answers to questions. Do not tolerate any judicial impatience.

If you see a judge favoring one side’s presentation, or granting inequitable favors, confront him in private. Let him know YOU have noticed. Tell him it is unacceptable. Tell him, if the trial is manifestly unfair and inequitable, the jury will make a statement to that effect as part of its ruling. Make complaints to judicial oversight bodies, if need be. If all else fails: Go Public.

YOU are the guardians of justice. YOU are the last stand in what has become in recent years, a “game of thrones”—a merry-go-round of power, fame, and gain which has caught most of the “elites” in webs of compromise, deceit, mutual favors, intrigue, and fear. (Oh, déjà vu!3)

If you don’t, then at least read this:

Jury Nullification is a principle often suppressed and denied by the legal profession but one with a long and splendid history. It says that We The People have the power to judge not only questions of guilt and innocence but the law itself. We The People, sitting as a jury, are competent to nullify laws we consider unjust or unconstitutional.4

[T]he long history of Jury Nullification is mirrored by the long history of judges denying or hiding the right and power of juries to nullify.5

Intense pressure by corporations and their high-powered lawyerly clients moved the Supreme Court to declare in 1895 that judges and courts no longer had to inform juries of their rights of nullification. So naturally they did not and Jury Nullification slipped quietly into the mists of forgotten history. / In the 20th century, it became more and more the norm for judges to incorrectly instruct juries that they must consider only the facts of the case and whether the defendant was guilty of breaking a law – not judge the law itself.6

PS: And remember:

» Every electee and every government appointee is OUR employee.
» Every civil (and uncivil) servant is OUR employee.
» We The People are the last stand against a standing army of unconstitutional actors and actions.

Awake and Arise!

“The common understanding and common language of the Enlightenment political philosophers who established the American system was this: juries were to judge both law and fact. / We will see in subsequent volumes how Jury Nullification, so important in establishing freedom in both England and America, would continue to protect rights even when the law did not.” [Ledbetter, (Kindle Locations: 5035-5040)].

Book of Mormon | Alma 10:25-27 ~ But Amulek stretched forth his hand, and cried the mightier unto them, saying: O ye wicked and perverse generation, why hath Satan got such great hold upon your hearts? Why will ye yield yourselves unto him that he may have power over you, to blind your eyes, that ye will not understand the words which are spoken, according to their truth? For behold, have I testified against your law? Ye do not understand; ye say that I have spoken against your law; but I have not, but I have spoken in favor of your law, to your condemnation. And now behold, I say unto you, that the foundation of the destruction of this people is beginning to be laid by the unrighteousness of your lawyers and your judges.
