As we enter the second decade of a new century millions of Americans are waking up from a very long nap, in fact they’ve slept longer than the fictional character Rumplestiltskin’s hundred year siesta. The awakening started slowly as rights and liberties began to be openly traded for security with the first Bush administration and began to accelerate on the downhill slide with Bush Jr. The real roller coaster ride entered maximum velocity with the election of Obama. Suddenly rights and liberties became consumable commodities by the most blatantly corrupt and power hungry presidential administration in the history of the United States.
With the passage of the outrageous instrument of mass destruction to freedom and liberty known as Obama Care millions of Americans were shaken awake like they had been hit my a massive earthquake. Hidden in the bill were death panels, redistribution of personal assets, expansion of socialist anti-constitutional agendas, illegal mandates and even totally unrelated power grabs like student loans. For the first time in history a United States president had appointed himself king and gotten away with it.
The single largest generation in this country is known as the “baby boomers”, born in the decade and a half after WWII. We are the last generation in this country to receive even a partially accurate education in American and World history. We are the grand and great grandparents of the nation. We are shocked and amazed to see our children, full grown adults now, willfully relinquishing their freedom and liberty not because they believe the government’s ridiculous claims of terrorist threats but because they are too busy watching the electronic mind control machine known as television and blindly accepting what spews from it as truth. World shaking issues like who will be the final American Idol or Super Bowl winner overshadow all other levels of reality while they blissfully ignore the stripping of their unalienable rights. They listen to mainstream media for news if they pay attention to news at all. When they do notice something wrong with what is happening in government the same old tired rhetoric escapes their lips, “they should do something” and off they go to re-engage in addictive irrelevancy.
I can’t speak for all the other grandparents out there in “Dumbedownland” but I can tell you it is devastating to me to realize how clueless my own children are even after growing up with a mother who insisted on teaching them true history, enforced rules and certainly did not spare the rod. When I see how they are raising their own children I want to scream and not stop until they finally hear me. It’s a bitter pill to swallow to know that all I would gain by screaming is Laryngitis. As my eight year old grandson virtually rules the adults and every aspect of family life in his house and his mother allows him to eat only McDonald’s food day after day resulting in major health problems she treats with medications he shouldn’t need or use until maybe the last third of his life I find myself thinking; Toto, we are definitely not in Kansas anymore!
What happened? Well at least for me the answer is public school, television and the fact that both parents had to work to keep the family’s bellies full and their bodies sheltered. With the grandchildren, add to those things video games and junk food and you have a nation of perfect little robots for the upcoming Utopian Ultra Dependency Culture better known as New World Order. The masses rushing toward it like mindless Lemmings have not stopped to engage in a single rational thought as to where the road leads and who will be the only humans to benefit. All they see is “free”, “healthcare and housing and jobs, oh my”.
Guess what kids, you will get out of bed in the morning and join the hundreds of others in your living structure at the community tables in the community kitchen and have a nice bowl of community oatmeal (gruel), followed by ten minutes of community exercise. After that you will march single file to your community job in the community factory so conveniently located on the ground floor of your community living structure and you will work until community lunch then back to the community cafeteria. After lunch it’s back to work until community dinner followed by community sleep until the community alarm clock goes off and you do it all over again in the morning. Tonight’s forecast? Dark! Continued mostly dark until another enlightened age comes around in, oh say a couple hundred years.
What about your children you say; huh? What children, you mean those you gave birth to or fathered? Silly rabbit, children are for the elite, you know that. You gave those children to the state remember? Sure you did, when you signed that birth certificate and that Social Security form. Have you forgotten what Comrade Hilary taught you? It takes a village to raise a child, parents are stupid animals and they can’t be trusted with such an overwhelming responsibility like raising and nurturing children. Besides parental interference might prove detrimental to indoctrination and that could lead to dissatisfaction and God forbid, independent thought. Oops, don’t tell anyone I used that word. The “G” word will get me five to ten in the Obama Future Crimes Detention Center.
Doesn’t sound so hot when you look at it that way does it? Why not? It’s what you have asked for. You are getting exactly what you voted for no matter which party you voted for and who was running. You asked for it when you failed to speak up when each one of your unalienable rights were stripped by a runaway, invasive and corrupt system of national government. You asked for it when you looked the other way while a foreign corporation stole your sweat equity and hundreds of elected officials pocketed massive amounts of public funds to satisfy personal greed or dodged the oppressive taxation you are subject to. You said not a word as your congress voted them selves special privileges, exorbitant raises and passed legislation granting those who will not work the right to claim the fruits of your labor. You sat on your couch in a squawk box daze while pinheaded pundits and Hollywood morons aka stars whined about social justice, defended pedophiles, illegal immigrants and called you a racist if you dared to slip out of your stupor.
If the community living, working, eating and sleeping structure described above does not appeal it is time to get off your butt and use that mouth God (there I go again baiting the speech police), gave you to voice your objections and the feet he endowed you with to stand, strong and immovable; time to show the enemy within the gates the door. There are more than 300 million individuals in this country and even though 67 million of them are addicted to the government teat that leaves a majority of working people who are the real power. That means you. You are the highest authority in the land! You Are The Answer!
If you have forgotten what the true structure of government is in this country or were never taught the fact that we do not live under a Democracy but a Republic, it’s time to hit the books, if you can’t read or don’t like to there are thousands of related videos on you tube or audio books available in your local library. Turn off that television set except maybe to watch the educational shows Beck is now doing on Fox network. You cannot fight an enemy you don’t know and understand. You cannot defend that which you are not aware you are losing or ever had in the first place.
Many movements and organizations have sprouted up across the country as the people begin to shake the sleep from their heads and virtually all of them have a piece of the puzzle but none have the whole picture. They are lacking the ability to unite the nation because quite frankly the nation is ignorant by design. There is however one basic piece of the puzzle which defines the solution. It’s simple and easy to understand and once the knowledge of it is spread throughout the population we can easily take our country back.
The problem we must solve is the existence of admiralty law in place of common law and the fact that our court system from local to supreme has become nothing more than a tool to levy fines and incarcerate individuals into a corrupt prison system for the purpose of providing bonds for the bankers to leverage into massive wealth for themselves and the politicians, bar attorneys and judges who contract with them.
At the heart of the problem are the juries made up of every day citizens age 18 and older who are called to serve on cases every day. The men and women who make up a jury are all that stand between corruption and justice but they are subject to instruction by the judge. If they are not aware of the law, their duty under it or their right to judge it as well as the evidence how are they to serve justice? Enter, Jury Nullification; the power of the jury to nullify a law they deem unjust, unconstitutional or in some way inapplicable to the defendant. Since most judges today are committed to either separate the defendant from his money, his freedom or both they do not instruct the jury of their right to nullification. Many judges will remove a juror from the panel if they are told that person is holding up a verdict based on nullification. The judges have no right to do that under common law which is the law of this land but since the other jurors do not know or understand the concept or the power it places in their hands they say nothing. If the jury has no power to judge the law as well as the evidence and charges how then do we maintain justice and the adherence to our Constitution by our three branches of government most specifically the judicial?
Men do not make laws. They do but discover them. Laws must be justified by something more than the will of the majority. They must rest on the eternal foundation of righteousness. That state is most fortunate in its form of government which has the aptest instruments for the discovery of law.

It is this issue alone that has resulted in literally thousands of individuals incarcerated in this country for violation of unjust laws, unreasonable regulations and corrupt political policies. Jury nullification means a jury can find a defendant innocent because the law itself is unjust or the application of it in a particular instance is not just; relative to the situation.
It is common today for judges to tell prospective jurors that they must apply the law as he gives it to them and that their business is simply to determine whether the defendant has broken the law or not. But that is not what was intended by the right to trial by jury in the Bill or Rights. Thomas Jefferson said in 1782 (Notes on Virginia):
...it is usual for the jurors to decide the fact, and to refer the law arising on it to the decision of the judges. But this division of the subject lies with their discretion only. And if the question relate to any point of public liberty, or if it be one of those in which the judges may be suspected of bias, the jury undertake to decide both law and fact.
Then, recommending trial by jury to the French in 1789, Jefferson wrote to Tom Paine, "I consider...[trial by jury] as the only anchor ever yet imagined by man, by which a government can be held to the principles of its constitution...."
One may say that Jefferson is not talking about nullification, but just about a jury taking the interpretation of the law into its own hands -- though that is already well beyond what a jury is allowed to do now, especially if a jury undertook to apply its own interpretation of the Bill of Rights. On the other hand, we have the District of Columbia Circuit Court of Appeals, in Unites States v. Dougherty, 1972, saying:
[The jury has an] unreviewable and irreversible power...to acquit in disregard of the instructions on the law given by the trial judge...The pages of history shine on instances of the jury's exercise of its prerogative to disregard uncontradicted evidence and instructions of the judge; for example, acquittals under the fugitive slave law. http://www.friesian.com/nullif.htm
Jury nullification is the very power which can stop a person from being jailed for violation of a law which the government has no right to pass in the first place under our Constitution such as laws regulating “controlled substances”. How many cancer or Aids patients have been jailed for using Marijuana in order to control pain or be able to eat or keep medications down? Was it justice or commerce that put them there? There have been many well known and historical cases in which jury nullification was used to thwart unjust application of law but I would place a heavy bet on the fact that the average American could not cite one.
If every American is made aware of this simple concept corrupt judges and courts will no longer run roughshod over the country, her people and her founding principles. If you have a family member or a friend who is called to jury service, do your duty and make sure they are educated on the true power they hold as jurors. Judges cannot get away with misdirection and deliberate violation of a juries rights, powers and duty if the men and women impaneled are armed with truth.
It is true that jury nullification alone will not return us to our rightful de jure form of Republican system of government. We must also re-instate our county juries and common law court justices but while we are working on that we can make a profound difference in this country by refusing to deliver guilty verdicts against people accused of the violation of unjust and or unconstitutional laws. Knowledge is power that is why they don’t want us to have it.

It looks like the banks are getting crafty as rampant mortgage fraud is uncovered and homeowners are finding there is no promissory note so they actually own their homes outright.
A few days ago a close friend received a letter from his mortgage holder, J P Morgan Chase. The letter was sent next day by Fed Ex. My friend had never been late on or delinquent on a payment however his credit rating had taken a beating over this past year. Imagine his surprise when he received the letter offering a refinance on his house at a much lower interest rate than he currently pays.
With the economy being what it is and most people unable to get a mortgage anywhere he was more than a little suspicious of the lenders motives. Later that day the lender called him on the telephone and was really pushing him to accept the deal before today and he declined. He called me and asked what I thought. I agreed that it was more than a little odd they would do such a thing and cautioned him. I told him it probably meant they knew they could not produce a promissory note and with the huge numbers of people across the country obtaining the deeds on their homes for that reason, they just want to “hook” him into another contract, this time one he can’t get out of.
He thought the matter was closed, he had said no thank you but today he received the following by email;
Good Afternoon XXX and XXX,
I have been trying to reach you with regards to a rate reduction offer we sent you via FedEx.
Please give me a call back by tomorrow end of business.
Thank you !

If you are a homeowner be cautious of unsolicited offers from your mortgage company especially when they are so overly anxious to “give you something” you haven’t asked for. Instead, look into the existence of your promissory note.
