*What if every elected official, government agency, and even the unelected nameless faceless bureaucrats working for the Statutory and Regulatory Industrial Complex feared YOU?
*What if every single move they made would be under the watchful eye of We The People, with real tangible and immediate consequences?
*Instead of burning up their phone lines, email inboxes and fax machines with empty threats of “if you vote for that, we might not vote for you in 2 years!”, what if they would actually tremble when you called because they knew their power, positions and personal assets would be on the line?
*Instead of the empty threats of just losing the next election for breaking their oath of office to protect and defend the Constitution, what if their indiscretions meant actual prison time?
*What if you have the power to subpoena records and require elected officials to testify under oath before a panel of We The People?
*What if this isn’t some new-fangled idea, but rather existing power available to We The People since the inception of America?
The fact is, We The People, already have this power!
The common law grand jury system, in fact, had already been around for over 650 years by the time of our founding as it was first discussed in the Magna Carta in 1215 . It is the very tool the founders gave us to hold our government accountable on a daily basis.
We The People retained the power to create and control the grand jury system by never delegating that power to the government.
In the 1992 case, U.S vs. Williams, the U.S. Supreme Court said, “In fact the whole theory of its function is that it belongs to no branch of the institutional government, serving as a kind of buffer or referee between the Government and the people.”
They also said, “Because the grand jury is an institution separate from the courts, over whose functioning the courts do not preside, we think it clear that, as a general matter at least, no such “supervisory” judicial authority exists.”
In addition, they said, “…we have insisted that the grand jury remain free to pursue its investigations unhindered by external influence or supervision so long as it does not trench upon the legitimate rights of any witness called before it.”
The 5th Amendment of the Constitution states that “No person shall be held to answer for a capital or otherwise infamous crime unless by presentment or indictment of a grand jury.” –
The purpose of the Constitution was to create the government and give it certain enumerated powers. The 10th Amendment essentially says that if the authority is not listed in the Constitution, the power is reserved to the states or to the people.
With that said, the federal government has no power to create or control a grand jury as the Constitution has not granted them that power.
**Common Law vs. Statutory puppet grand juries
Today’s “statutory puppet grand juries” didn’t come from the Constitution. They were created by statute (not law), as a look-a-like, meant to deceive the people. Jurists are hand-picked puppets by the government, given very specific rules and restrictions, and misled toward pre-determined outcomes.
“Every generation must make a choice as to what type of country we’ll be. Only an informed and courageous electorate will choose liberty and self-government. We must make the right choices today, and work tirelessly to prepare the next generation.”
