Constitutional Sheriff Tony DeMeo

by Cassandra Anderson
July 30, 2010

In this 3-part video interview with Tony DeMeo, Sheriff of Nye County, Nevada, he explains that he is a Constitutional Sheriff and that authority for public office holders is derived from the people. He tells the story about how he used the Constitution as his foundation in the saga of Nye County rancher Wayne Hage's disputes over encroachments by the federal government. While Wayne Hage's case centered around property rights in federally managed lands, Sheriff Tony DeMeo's example is relevant for everyone to understand the power of local government, the importance of following the Constitution and upholding the Tenth Amendment (states' rights and sovereignty).

Wayne Hage, the author of "Storm Over Rangelands, Private Rights in Federal Lands" owned the Pine Creek cattle ranch in Nye County. Wayne Hage wrote his book after suffering illegal cattle seizures by armed federal agents and chronicled the history of how the robber baron bankers and railroad magnates monopolized the western states over 100 years ago. Hage wrote that the northern core financiers were aware that there are two ways to monopolize any resource, "One, get all of it for yourself that you can; two, keep anybody else from getting what you can't." Public Lands and National Forests were created along with restrictive regulations, using environmental protection as the excuse. FULL STORY

MERS: Named in Class Action Racketeering Suit

This is extremely important, especially for those people who are facing foreclosure. A large majority of foreclosures are initiated by MERS. There are at least 3 state appellate court rulings now that have established that MERS is not an interested party to a foreclosure, and it has been subsequently barred from intiating foreclosures in those states. Now it appears that this Complaint is accusing MERS of being nothing more than a conspiracy amongst the large banks, which has resulted in nothing more than a way to fraudulently convey title. I will not be at all surprised if this ends up being the case. Full Story

Schiff Locks Up Forbes Endorsement

MILFORD, CT - Steve Forbes, a staunch defender of the free-market and one-time Presidential candidate, today endorsed Peter Schiff's bid for U.S. Senate in Connecticut.

"I have known Peter Schiff for several years. He has a deep knowledge of finance and economics," said Steve Forbes. "He had long warned of the troubles we now face. As your citizen-Senator he will be a fierce fighter for cutting spending, cutting taxes and repealing Obamacare."

Mr. Forbes has only endorsed three other candidates for U.S. Senate running in the 2010 election cycle: John McCain, Marco Rubio and Rand Paul.

"Steve Forbes understands the massive strains the American economy is under, and to have his backing and trust means a great deal to me," said Peter Schiff. "We need to restore free-market principles, get government out of the way and put people back to work. Steve's understanding of my vision, coupled with his backing, will help me get to Washington to make sure we grow the economy, not the government." FULL STORY

A message to all members of Tea Party of West Michigan

Were you lied to by the fake tea party?

Did they name Tea Party of West Michigan when you asked who was paying for the petition drive? Did they have our t-shirts on? Did they name another tea party group or person from a group in the state? If so we want an affidavit stating that fact and notarized. We want a stack of them to show that this whole thing was a fraud perpetrated on the Michigan electorate. Let us know if you are willing to sign such an affidavit and if you went last week to testify and had an affidavit and didn't get a chance to present your case we still want it.

Mysterious "Tea Party" Party of Democrats

Democratic Party Political Director Linked to 
Mysterious Tea Party Political Party

By TOM GANTERT | July 28, 2010

A tea party organizer says he has found the smoking gun that links the Democratic Party to the controversial "Tea Party" that is running candidates and seeking official ballot status in Michigan.
A "Jason Bauer" is listed on recent federal election documents and state campaign donation documents as the "political director" of the Oakland County Democratic Party. A "Jason H. Bauer" signed the affidavits as the notary on nine of the mysterious Tea Party Political candidates' paperwork turned in to the state of Michigan.
A "Jason H. Bauer" has registered twice to run for office in Oakland County, once as a Democrat in May of this year. Both times, the Auburn Hills home address given by "Jason H. Bauer" is the same as the "Jason Bauer" who is identified as the Oakland County Democratic Party political director on the state and federal campaign documents.
The Michigan Democratic Party has denied being involved.
Chetly Zarko, who recently passed away, uncovered the petition drive necessary to create the Tea Party and discovered it was being done by Progressive Campaigns Inc. out of California. Their website has a client list that includes a campaign issue supported by George Soros, a well known supporter of Democrat causes. PCI also was involved with the Reform Michigan Government Now petition that was supported by Democrats and opposed by Republicans. FULL STORY

“America’s Toughest Sheriff” Joe Arpaio endorses Bouchard

For Immediate Release: July 26, 2010
America’s Toughest Sheriff” Joe Arpaio endorses 
Mike Bouchard for Governor
Oakland County - Mike Bouchard, Republican candidate for governor, today has gained the endorsement of “America’s Toughest Sheriff” Joe Arpaio of Maricopa County in Arizona. Bouchard’s latest endorsement adds to the tremendous list of supporters including the Michigan Fraternal Order of Police, Police Officers Association of Michigan and 42 Sheriffs in Michigan. FULL RELEASE
Sheriff Mack endorses Mike Bouchard for Governor
“It gives me great pleasure to support Sheriff Mike Bouchard for the office of Governor for the great state of Michigan,” Mack said. “I honestly feel he is the man for the job at this most crucial time in our nation’s history. He knows the law, he knows the economy, and most importantly, he knows and understands the principles of freedom. Mike Bouchard knows Michigan and has the leadership skills to move Michigan forward. Yes, I am from Arizona, but when Mike Bouchard is elected Michigan’s next Governor, I’m moving to Michigan!” FULL RELEASE

FedUpUSA Endorses Sheriff Michael Bouchard for Governor of Michigan

The field for the Republican nomination for governor is pretty crowded, but after careful consideration, FedUpUSA is proud to endorse Sheriff Michael Bouchard for Governor of Michigan.

We believe that Mr. Bouchard stands apart from the rest of the candidates for the simple reason that he consistently stands on the side of freedom.

His bold move to assertively propose that Michigan follow the lead of the most prosperous states in the union by becoming a Right to Work state is just the kind of aggressive action we need to turn Michigan around.

His firm stance in opposition to all the taxpayer-funded bailouts of insolvent institutions is one of the pillars upon which FedUpUSA was built.

In addition, Mr. Bouchard’s belief in the 10th Amendment of the US Constitution and his willingness to assert it to protect the citizens of Michigan against an overreaching federal government in the matters of health care and Cap & Trade is of the utmost importance to freedom-loving Michiganders.

We must have a leader willing to put the needs of the people of Michigan above all else. Mr. Bouchard is not more big Washington DC government (Hoekstra); he’s not more ineffective state government (Cox) and he’s not a small businessman with very liberal ideas claiming to be a conservative (Snyder). FedUpUSA believes Michael Bouchard is the right man for Michigan.

Los Zetas drug cartel seizes 2 U.S. ranches in Texas

It was brought to my attention by several resources that this story about Cartel seizes 2 US ranches is a hoax.

Invasion: Gangs, gun battles at Tex-Mex border;

Individuals who have flooded the switchboards of the Laredo Police Department and the Webb Sheriff’s Department have been asking one question: is there a problem down along the border? They have received the same response just as I received when I asked the same question, “Yes, there is a problem down here and it’s serious,” said one law enforcement source. When asked if there is any truth to the rumors of a Texas Rancher having their property taken over by the Cartel on this side of the border their response was clear, “Hell no and I’d know, I’m a 9-11 operator.”

As you can see it’s all about how you ask the question in order to receive the correct answer when inquiring into such a seriously volatile situations. When you call any police department along the border and ask if there is a problem down their way, of course they will say there is for sure. They deal with border issues every day and yes, there is a serious problem down their way. Therefore, please be sure to ask the right questions before posting out to the masses about this issue. I for one am guilty today of doing the same as all of you, which is why I made the phone calls and asked the right questions to quell this situation once and for all.. FULL STORY

$3.5 Billion Roundtrip Back to Square One

God our Father, walk through my house and take away all my worries and illnesses and please watch over and heal my family in Jesus name, Amen.

by Martin D. Weiss, Ph.D.

Join me on my time machine for a short trip to the past … and then into the future.

We begin two and a half years ago, in early 2008 …

We see the U.S. economy beginning to hit the skids. The housing market is plunging — the worst declines in home sales and the most foreclosures of all time.

Consumer confidence and retail sales are cratering; manufacturing, biting the dust.

Despite sharp intermediate rallies, the stock market begins to sink.

Next, we return to July 25, 2010, and take a quick look around …

Once again, the economy is hitting the skids, the housing market in trouble. Home sales are falling, foreclosures mounting. Consumer confidence and retail sales are cratering. And despite mini-rallies, the stock market is wobbly, more vulnerable to a decline than at any time since the debt crisis.

There is, however, one significant difference between today and 2008: Thanks to President Bush’s massive bank bailouts (at least $700 billion), President Obama’s giant stimulus program (nearly $800 billion) and the Fed’s money printing (about $2 trillion), we are now trillions of dollars deeper in debt!

All told, this bailout-stimulus-money-printing enterprise has cost America an outrageously expensive $3.5 trillion … and all we’ve bought is a roundtrip back to square one!

Last, we fast-forward to the future to consider this scenario …

The economy is back down to where it was in March of 2009, before the latest so-called recovery.

The stock market is also near its March 2009 levels.

The credit markets are freezing up again, just like they were during that period.

Our entire nation is again teetering at the edge of the same cliff as it was back then.

In this situation, will the U.S. government try to do the very same crazy things it did last time, while expecting different results? Yes.

Two massive forces — forces that dwarf Washington in terms of sheer economic power — tie our leaders’ hands well before they have the chance to blow another $3.5 trillion in another doomed attempt to fight this crisis.
The first force is THE PEOPLE. The power of the popular rebellion in the United States — from virtually all parties and movements — is a phenomenon unparalleled in recent history. No seat in Congress is safe. No incumbent in either party is immune from voter anger over Washington’s gross mismanagement of the economy.
The second force is GLOBAL INVESTORS. They are fed up with Washington’s massive borrowings to fund its deficits. They are even more fed up with Bernanke, who has already flooded the world with new paper dollars to buy government bonds, government agency bonds and even mortgage bonds. FULL STORY

$.4.4 billion in questionable spending Community health department audit finds

Catherine Jun / The Detroit News

Lansing -- A nonpartisan state audit uncovered as much as $.4.4 billion in questionable spending within the Michigan Department of Community Health in the last two years, including payments for services to people who had died, according to a release Thursday by the state House of Representatives.
The findings were made by the Michigan Auditor General, who issued a 275-page report late last month.
House Republicans will ask department Director Janet Olszewski to testify before lawmakers on the audit's findings.

From The Detroit News:

$4.4 Billion in questionable spending is not a small issue. And it's not only the Department of Community Health than needs to be looked into. People need to know exactly how their tax dollars are being spent and on whom they are being spent. I would recommend that everyone download the AUDIT REPORT HERE and start reading. When you finish, maybe, just maybe you will be better educated to vote in the August 3rd Primary and this November.

State Police begin investigation of Muskegon probation officers

Both officers were involved in Muskegon County’s Sobriety Court, which recently won a two-year, $500,000 federal stimulus grant to expand the jail-diversion program.

That program involves intensive, court-supervised probation and oversight of participating criminal defendants, mostly people charged with driving while intoxicated. Malone, the county staffer who has overseen it since it was launched in 2006, has been described as the court’s main organizer and “architect.”

Meanwhile, the Muskegon County Sheriff’s Office has completed its criminal investigation of another fired county official, former Deputy Treasurer Dan Joslyn. It is seeking an arrest warrant, according to an assistant prosecutor

This is a combination of federal grant money and Michigan Department of Community Health.

Not only does the Federal government love to pat themselves on the back for taking our money, but you can see how our non-elected employees put it to such good use.

And now a little tidbit from the Michigan Department of Human Services or DHS. I just received this this morning. It seems that DHS is now in charge of Voter Registration. It's printed right on their forms.

Gerald Celente: Washington Is Paid Off, Only Ron Paul Has Credibility

We all know that Ron Paul has tried to pass legislation to Audit the Federal Reserve only to have that bill blocked. We know that the Federal Reserve is a PRIVATE Bank and not Part of our government.

Do the Republicans really believe that we are going to be so fooled as to put one of the Federal Reserves OWN in the White House?

In addition to serving as the former president and CEO of Godfather's Pizza for 10 years, Cain, 64, is also former president and CEO of the National Restaurant Association and former chairman of the Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City.

The 1961 Speech That Got JFK Killed?

It was hard to miss the veiled reference to The Illuminati (House of Rothschild), Bilderbergers, CFR and the other secret societies that rule the world from behind the scenes.

“Things do not happen. Things are made to happen” JFK

[Excerpt from "Bones" in the Money Pit about The Powers That Be (TPTB)]

Our consumer society didn’t just happen; it was planned. Not in 1910, or 1954, but in the year 1832, the year William Huntington Russell and fellow classmate Alphonso Taft founded the Skull and Bones society at Yale University, a branch of the Bavarian Illuminati.

Members, known as “Bonesmen,” include Rockefeller, Kuhn, Loeb and Morgan all connected to the House of Rothschild’s global financial empire. They are founders of the Federal Reserve, the Bank of England, France, and Germany or, for that matter, any central bank anywhere in the world. In theory, the Federal Reserve Act of 1913, one of the most important domestic acts in the nation’s history, took the power to create money from the people and gave it to the Bonesmen for profit.

Competing currency being accepted across Mid-Michigan

by Dan Armstrong

New types of money are popping up across Mid-Michigan and supporters say, it's not counterfeit, but rather a competing currency.

Right now, you can buy a meal or visit a chiropractor without using actual U.S. legal tender.

They sound like real money and look like real money. But you can't take them to the bank because they're not made at a government mint. They're made at private mints.

"I sell three or four every single day and then I get one or two back a week," said Dave Gillie, owner of Gillies Coney Island Restaurant in Genesee Township.

Gillie also accepts silver, gold, copper and other precious metals to pay for food.

He says, if he wanted to, he could accept marbles.

"Do people have to accept dollars or money? No, they don't," Gillie said. "They can accept anything they want or they can refuse to accept anything."

He's absolutely right. FULL STORY PART 1 VIDEO PART 2 VIDEO

Idaho GOP reshaped by tea party outrage

Joined by tea party members, Ron Paul disciples and old-guard conservatives, Beck strode into the three-day confab in Idaho Falls amid a swelling national tide of frustration with Washington, D.C., magnified by Idaho's already rightist tilt. When it was over, a majority of the 500 delegates had transformed their platform with a spasm of anti-fed outrage — and anger at Republicans who Beck thinks have strayed from the fold.

Over three days, they crafted a platform that urges Idaho to seize federal land, recommends ending popular elections of U.S. senators and sings the praises of gold and silver — an inflation hedge to U.S. Federal Reserve-issued greenbacks.

Even some hard-core tea party members from elsewhere were shocked at how far Idaho Republicans went.

"I don't want to say extreme, but let's just say you guys are more excited," said David Kirkham, a founder of Utah's tea party. In May, he joined Republicans to oust GOP U.S. Sen. Bob Bennett — for not being fiscally conservative enough.

Some see Idaho's convention, where delegates came just shy of backing an unregulated state militia, as evidence of a movement to reset the U.S. Constitution's clock. FULL STORY

Would this have happened if neighbors were friendlier with one another. It's easy to ignore a screaming child, but on the other hand, a knock on the door of your neighbor could also save a child's life.

4 year old, Dominick Calhoun, of Argentine Michigan was brutally beaten and tortured by his mothers boyfriend of the course of 4 days. This captivated the small town it took place in, as well as the small surrounding communities. This is not a high crime area, and the absolute last thing we would've expected. But it goes to show that child abuse can happen right under your nose. Never turn a blind eye (or ear). Dominicks death was 100% preventable. A simple phone call by one person was the difference between life and death for Dominick, but the call was never made. If you have a suspicion, make a call!

FBI: Man admits running sexual delivery service

"They come here because they want a better Life"

Agency says workers mostly female illegal immigrants

A 36-year-old Knoxville man arrested early this week has admitted to the FBI that he employed up to 400 female escorts who performed sex acts for cash in Knox and surrounding counties, court records show.

Selvin Salvador Perdomo, a Honduran national who is in the United States legally on a visa, ran the sexual delivery service out of a house he rented at 5101 Papermill Drive and almost exclusively employed female illegal immigrants of Hispanic descent, according to the FBI.

Perdomo took appointments through his cell phone and then drove the women to clients' homes in his red Ford Escort, records allege. In return for his services, the FBI alleges, Perdomo took half of the women's earnings. FULL STORY

Lost in Taxation The IRS's vast new ObamaCare powers.


If it seems as if the tax code was conceived by graphic artist M.C. Escher, wait until you meet the new and not improved Internal Revenue Service created by ObamaCare. What, you're not already on a first-name basis with your local IRS agent?

National Taxpayer Advocate Nina Olson, who operates inside the IRS, highlighted the agency's new mission in her annual report to Congress last week. Look out below. She notes that the IRS is already "greatly taxed"—pun intended?—"by the additional role it is playing in delivering social benefits and programs to the American public," like tax credits for first-time homebuyers or purchasing electric cars. Yet with ObamaCare, the agency is now responsible for "the most extensive social benefit program the IRS has been asked to implement in recent history." And without "sufficient funding" it won't be able to discharge these new duties.

Well, well. Republicans argued during the health debate that the IRS would have to hire hundreds of new agents and staff to enforce ObamaCare. They were brushed off by Democrats and the press corps as if they believed the President was born on the moon. The IRS says it hasn't figured out how much extra money and manpower it will need but admits that both numbers are greater than zero.

Ms. Olson also exposed a damaging provision that she estimates will hit some 30 million sole proprietorships and subchapter S corporations, two million farms and one million charities and other tax-exempt organizations. Prior to ObamaCare, businesses only had to tell the IRS the value of services they purchase. But starting in 2013 they will also have to report the value of goods they buy from a single vendor that total more than $600 annually—including office supplies and the like. FULL STORY

Glenn Beck’s Lincoln Contradictions

By Thomas Dilorenzo

When I debated one of the gurus of neocon Lincoln idolatry – Harry Jaffa – shortly after The Real Lincoln was published in 2002, he bellowed at one point that "9/11 proves more than ever that we need a strong central government." (In reality, it proved the failure and incapability of "the central government" to protect even its own D.C. headquarters from a few nuts armed with box cutters.) "We need big, totalitarian government to fight all the new Hitlers and potential Hitlers in the world" is the neocon mantra, in a nutshell.

To neocons, Lincoln is the poster boy of militaristic big government that runs roughshod over civil liberties while bankrupting the country with taxes and debt and murdering thousands of innocent foreigners (not that Southerners during the 1861–1865 war were foreigners; they were fellow American citizens). Doesn’t this sound like the Republican Party of today, as embodied in the recently dethroned Bush administration? FULL STORY

When Obama claims to be just like Lincoln, well, here's a sample of what Obama means.

"Lincoln's intentions, as well as those of many Northern politicians, were summarized by Stephen Duglas during the senatorial debates. Douglas accused Lincoln of wanting to "impose on the nation a uniformity of local laws and institutions and a moral homogeneity dictated by the central government" that would "place at defiance the intentions of the republic's founders." Douglas was right, and Lincoln's vision for our nation has now been accomplished beyond anything he could have possibly dreamed."

The Right To Nullify This Government

by Thomas E. Woods, Jr.

These principles were used for honorable purposes throughout antebellum American history. Virginia and Kentucky used them on behalf of free speech. The New England states employed them against unconstitutional searches and seizures. Numerous northern states used them against fugitive slave laws, provisions of which they considered unconstitutional notwithstanding the Constitution’s fugitive-slave clause. More than six decades after Jefferson penned the immortal words of the Kentucky Resolutions, the legislature of Wisconsin quoted them word for word in defense of its defiance of such laws.

Do American schoolchildren read about any of this? The question answers itself. They are about as likely to read that I, Tom Woods, am the king of England. FULL STORY

NAACP Targets Racism in the Tea Party; Conservatives Fire Back

Barney Frank (D-Mass.) was accosted with anti-gay slurs.

94 Charged in Medicare Scams Totaling $251M

This article should send up red flags for anyone who reads it, as to why we do not want the Federal Government involved in our health care. Medicare is a government run insurance which is Un-Constitutional to begin with. But this article should tell the reader just how incompetent our federal employees are.

Now because the Feds need to fund the new health care, there going to stop the raping that has been going on for ages? It isn't that they didn't know about it, it's that they didn't care, because at the time, it served it's purpose. Congress could have stopped this long ago if they had really cared. Instead, they now claim Obama's Affordable Care Act is the Political Hero.

Feds launch largest Medicare fraud bust, charging 94 in 5 states for $251 million scams
By KELLI KENNEDY and TOM HAYS Associated Press 

Elderly Russian immigrants lined up to take kickbacks from the backroom of a Brooklyn clinic. Claims flooded in from Miami for HIV treatments that never occurred. One professional patient was named in nearly 4,000 false Medicare claims.

Authorities said busts carried out this week in Miami, New York City, Detroit, Houston and Baton Rouge, La., were the largest Medicare fraud takedown in history — part of a massive overhaul in the way federal officials are preventing and prosecuting the crimes.

In all, 94 people — including several doctors and nurses — were charged Friday in scams totaling $251 million. Federal authorities, while touting the operation, cautioned the cases represent only a fraction of the estimated $60 billion to $90 billion in Medicare fraud absorbed by taxpayers each year.

For the first time federal officials have the power to overhaul the system under Obama's Affordable Care Act, which gives them authority to stop paying a provider they suspect is fraudulent. Critics have complained the current process did nothing more than rubber-stamp payments to fraudulent providers.

Violent criminals and mobsters are also tapping into the scams, seeing Medicare fraud as more lucrative than dealing drugs and having less severe criminal penalties, officials said.

For decades, Medicare operated under a system that paid providers first and investigated later. That pay and chase method was a boon for crooks, giving them 90 days lag time to milk the system and flee with millions before authorities were aware a crime had been committed. FULL STORY

Two Types of NULLIFICATION - Tom Woods Interview 07/14/10

This is a great interview with Historian/Author Tom Woods on the 10th Amendment and States Rights of Nullification.

Our Founders put into place checks and balances because they knew how easy it would be for power hungry politicians to pervert the Constitution. States Rights of Nullification are only one of the checks put into place which allows the states to void out an Un-Constitutional law passed by the U. S. Congress. But what about Un-Constitutional State Laws? Watch the interview and then read below for the answer.

This is one of the best papers I have read on the subject of a Jury's Power of Nullification.


by Justice William Goodloe, Washington State Supreme Court, retired
with gratitude for the research of Professors Alan Scheflin, Jon Van Dyke, and Mark Howe, and for the citation verification by Tom Stahl

The case commemorated is Bushell's Case, 6 Howell's State Trials 999 (1670). This case is a good beginning for tracing the roots of a legal doctrine known as jury nullification.

The year was 1670 and the case Bushell sat on was that of William Penn and William Mead, both Quakers, who were on trial for preaching an unlawful religion to an unlawful assembly in violation of the Conventicle Act. This was an elaborate act which made the Church of England the only legal church. The facts clearly showed that the defendants had violated the Act by preaching a Quaker sermon. And yet the jury acquitted them against the judge's instruction. The Conventicle Act was nullified by the jury's not guilty verdict and the infuriated judge fined the jurors and jailed them until such time as their fines should be paid.

Edward Bushell and three others refused to pay the fines. As a consequence they were imprisoned for nine weeks and Bushell filed a writ of habeas corpus. He and the other recalcitrant jurors prevailed in the Court of Common Pleas, and the practice of punishing juries for verdicts unacceptable to the courts was abolished. Thus was re-established the right of jury nullification, an ancient right expressed in Magna Carta and dating from Greek and Roman times. And the jury's nullification verdict in this case, the trial of William Penn, established freedom of religion, freedom of speech, and the right to peacefully assemble. These rights became part of the English Bill of Rights, and later, part of the First Amendment to the United States Constitution. The man whom the courageous jurors had saved, William Penn, later founded Pennsylvania and the city of Philadelphia in which the Declaration of Independence and the United States Constitution were written.


According to the doctrine of jury nullification, jurors have the inherent right to set aside the instructions of the judge and to reach a verdict of acquittal based upon their own consciences. As abolitionist lawyer Lysander Spooner explained the doctrine in Trial By Jury in 1852, page one:

"For more than six hundred years - that is, since Magna Carta, in 1215 - there has been no clearer principle of English or American constitutional law, than that, in criminal cases, it is not only the right and duty of juries to judge what are the facts, what is the law, and what was the moral intent of the accused; but that it is also their right, and their primary and paramount duty, to judge of the justice of the law, and to hold all laws invalid, that are, in their opinion, unjust or oppressive, and all persons guiltless in violating, or resisting the execution of, such laws."


Sparf and Hansen is not the Supreme Court's last word on the jury's role. In 1968 the Court ruled in Duncan v. Louisiana, 391 U.S. 145, that the Constitution requires states to provide jury trials for all defendants facing a possible punishment of two years or more, and the Court strongly implied that it would later extend the jury trial right in state trials to all defendants facing a possible punishment of six months or more. Justice White, writing for the majority, gives some of the fundamental reasons why trial by jury is essential to liberty.
"A right to jury trial is granted to criminal defendants in order to prevent oppression by the Government ... Providing an accused with the right to be tried by a jury of his peers gave him an inestimable safeguard against the corrupt or overzealous prosecutor and against the
compliant, biased or eccentric judge ... Fear of unchecked power, so typical of our State and Federal Government in other respects, found expression in the criminal law in this insistence upon community participation in the determination of guilt or innocence."

Duncan, 391 U.S. at 155-156

The community can hardly make an effective participation in the determination of guilt or innocence if the jury is told that it must disregard its conscience and follow the law as dictated by a judge. The very word "guilt" requires the finding of a guilty mind, mens rea, the evil intent to do harm, and the jury can not determine this without consulting its own sense of right and wrong.


Modern Day Authority for Jury Nullification

Jury nullification remains the law of the land in every American jurisdiction. The ruling of Chief Justice Vaughan in Bushell's Case that the jury can not be punished for its verdict stands today in every jurisdiction, state and federal. This, coupled with the rule that verdicts of acquittal are final, is the substance of the power of jury nullification. Unless either or both of these two pillars of freedom are eroded away, the power of jury nullification is and will always be the law of the land. If the original intent of the Founders is our guide to the Constitution, then there is no doubt that jury nullification is a Constitutional right of both the defendant and of the jurors themselves, an unalienable part of the jurors' identity as sovereign citizens with the power to judge laws.

As the court has stated in U.S. v. Moylan, 417 F.2d 1002, 1006 (4th Circuit Court of Appeals, 1969):

"We recognize, as appellants urge, the undisputed power of the jury to acquit, even if its verdict is contrary to the law as given by the judge and contrary to the evidence ... If the jury feels that the law under which the defendant is accused is unjust, or that exigent circumstances justified the actions of the accused, or for any reason which appeals to their logic or passion, the jury has the power to acquit, and the courts must abide by that decision."


Some common objections to informing the jury about its power of nullification are that chaos and anarchy will result from inconsistent jury verdicts, that the jury will unjustly convict, and that it is the function of the legislature, and not the jury, to repeal laws. All of these objections are unfounded.

Jury nullification has not produced anarchy or social disintegration in history, but rather, it has given us our most important rights. Obviously, juries which are representative of the community will not want to render verdicts which will cause anarchy and chaos in the very communities in which the jurors reside.

Hung juries and inconsistent jury verdicts arising because of jury nullification are actually performing a service for society. They are sending messages to lawmakers in a peaceful, routine and institutionalized way that it is time for changes in the law. Jury nullification is an antidote for the kind of anarchy caused by the victimless crime laws. America now leads the world in the percentage of its population behind bars largely because of victimless crime laws and the ancillary crime that such laws generate. A long series of jury refusals to apply such laws will advise legislatures to repeal or modify them. As Scheflin and Van Dyke have noted: "Because of the high acquittal rate in prohibition cases during the 1920s and early 1930s, prohibition laws could not be enforced. The repeal of these laws is traceable to the refusal of juries to convict those accused of alcohol traffic."

Nullification: Individual and Collective Uses

Iloilo Marguerite Jones, Executive Director

Fully Informed Jury Association

In Wood's new and excellent book on Nullification, much is written about the use of nullification at the state level of government against the federal level of government, but less attention is given nullification by the individual juror. Yet, the essence of justice is that human rights and conscience exist and can be exercised only at an individual level. There is no “collective right” just as there is no “collective conscience.”

While the perceived collective political community may embark on collective political posturing for myriad reasons, it is only at the individual level that the elegance of the independent juror, capable of raising a standard of justice in anticipation of the coming tides in the affairs of men, that we observe the prescient nature of the individual human conscience in steering the ship of state through troubled waters.

Throughout human history, we have moved from slavery toward the recognition of the unique rights and self-ownership of each individual human. With this journey has come the recognition of the evils of collectivist thinking at all levels of consideration. When we finally accept––as a cultural necessity––the inherent value and rights of each individual human, and when there are free markets and voluntary associations, we will still have need of juries to consider, to weigh, and to decide, what is justice and what is not.

In fact, one can readily thumb through history and find instances of brilliant juror nullification: cases in which the jurors anticipated later-recognized human rights; cases in which jurors raised the standard of justice to new heights. A recent review carefully points up shifting sentiment toward nullification. At almost every instance within this excellent article, one could substitute the concept of the individual juror for the concept of the collective state government, and in that substitution, find the essence of the concept of the jury of 12 jurors: of self-determination on an individual level, as each juror accepts the authority to judge the law as well as the fact, based on individual sense of conscience, justice, and compassion.

Investigation of instances of failure of the jury can be attributed more to government employees’ political jury stacking than to jury malfunction. In many instances, racism, sexism, or other factors kept juries from being truly representative of all those connected to the case.

(The economic implications are clear: re-open justice to the vote of the free market: let the people, as should be represented by the jury in every criminal case, determine those laws considered economically viable for enforcement. We might soon see only one law: no initiation of force or fraud for any reason whatsoever.)

Let the jurors act on individual motivation, and let bad laws fall before the conscientious, informed jurors who understand that they have the authority to judge the law as well as the facts, and that it must be their personal sense of justice which compels their individual verdict. Let there be no distinction of the right to nullify bad laws, whether at the state level or at the individual level, where one juror, acting independently in good conscience, has the same right to nullify as any government body.

The jury is one of the smallest, and therefore most significant, of duly constituted bodies involved in the application of laws and the mechanisms of justice. The elegance of 12 jurors has been examined from a mathematical perspective, found as Appendix I in Vin Suprynowicz's brilliant SEND IN THE WACO KILLERS, which I imagine you have all read. Read the Appendix I again. You will be enlightened about the role of the individual juror in serving as an essential and mathematically significant check on government employees’ tyranny and attempted usurpation of human rights.

“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,” a Virginia lawyer wrote ... His name was Thomas Jefferson.

Jefferson clearly understood that while self-serving government employees at every level would exceed their authority given any opportunity, they could be denied that opportunity by the people who would comprise the jury, who would refuse to enforce usurpations of individual human rights. Jefferson also understood the "anchor" metaphor, and chose it above the "cannon" metaphor, because the jury is a peaceful, necessary restraint to keep the ship of state steady and safe in serving its purpose: the protection of individual human rights. Jurors hold the authority and the ability to enforce the limits of the Constitution by refusing to enforce government employees’ attempts to violate Constitutional boundaries.

Find out more by visiting the Fully Informed Jury Association. You will want to stay for a bit and read up on one of the least-known rights in our Common Law country. It is a right, that when known, effectively can save us––through peaceful means––from the war the government has declared and is making against its own people, not so different from those wars against the people that inspired the Magna Carta.

It is the independent, secular, non-partisan juror who stands as the Fourth Branch of Government, capable of placing a veto on bad laws by refusing to enforce them at the behest of self-interested government employees, whether at the federal, state, or local level. After all, conscientious nullification resides, in the final analysis, in the independent mind of the thinking individual.

Where is the Tea Part Strongest?

There are some states that take the Constitution and Bill of Right to heart and then there are states where the people have no idea what they are all about. This video shows how divided this country has become. It's so sad that we have lost track of our identity defined by our self evident inalienable rights that we are born with. They aren't granted to us by government, they can't be given away, taken away, voted away or legislated away.

They belong to each and every one of us individually. Yet, we are a country divided by those who believe that some have more rights than others, that some have the right to expect that others pay their way in life, that the unknown entity called government has the right to take from you and give to another.

The Tea Party people will succeed only when they all come together on the one issue. We all have the inalienable right to live our life as we see fit, as long as we don't infringe on another. We have the right to succeed or fail and suffer the consequences of either without government interference.

inalienable |inˈālēənəbəl|adjective
unable to be taken away from or given away by the possessor freedom of religion, the most inalienable of all human rights.

Senate-seeker wants Obama birth-certificate treatment

Mexican-born candidate: 'If I didn't prove citizenship, I'd be removed from the ballot'

By Chelsea Schilling
© 2010 WorldNetDaily

A Mexican-born candidate for U.S. Senate said he is considering a lawsuit against the Missouri secretary of state for discrimination because her office forced him to produce a birth certificate but "didn't make Obama show proof of citizenship" to appear on the ballot.

Hector Maldonado, 38, a self-described "Lincolnian Republican conservative," is seeking the Republican nomination for U.S. Senate in Missouri. He was born one of 10 children in Durango, Mexico. His father is a migrant field worker who owns a small hog ranch in Perris, Calif.

Maldonado continued, "But it's not that simple. I didn't get away with it. I got a certified letter from Ms. Robin Carnahan's office saying that if I did not prove that I was a U.S. citizen, then I would be removed from the ballot."

He claims Carnahan's office gave him a deadline of May 12.

"I got all my documents together: my birth certificate, which is a Mexican birth certificate; my naturalization certificate; my orders sending me to Iraq and Afghanistan; my bronze-star citations and a couple of officer evaluations that say I'm a pretty good and effective leader," he said. "So I brought all this documentation, and they were only interested in the naturalization certificate. They made a photocopy of it."

Maldonado said he asked Carnahan's office if his citizenship documentation would be public record and available to anyone who wants a copy.

"They said, oh yes, absolutely, anyone that wants proof, we have it," he explained. "I said, OK, can you do me a favor then? I'm sure Ms. Carnahan requested the same of Barack Obama when he petitioned to get on the Missouri ballot to become president."

He added, "They had no response. They had nothing."

During the following July 5 interview with Karen Berka of Branson Radio Live posted on YouTube, Maldonado explains why he thinks his rights were violated when the secretary of state's office asked for proof of U.S. citizenship when he filed to run for the Senate: FULL STORY

In an earlier interview on the subject, Maldonado said he spoke with other candidates running for the same office and asked if they had to show proof of citizenship or prove that they were citizens.

"They said no. I was the only one," he said. "... I just don't know, if I were running as a Democrat, would I have to prove the same thing? Or is there a more stringent process for the Republican candidates?"

The following is a YouTube posting with audio from that interview:

GLOBE BOMBSHELL - Is Presidency Illegal? This Question Will Not Go Away.

A story that first appeared on June 10, 2010 in World Net Daily is now the cover story this week in the GLOBE.

Guess who's covering sensational claim on Obama's birth ...
The Hawaiian elections official who claims the White House is lying about Barack Obama being born in Hawaii and that no long-form, hospital-generated birth certificate even exists for the president in the state is now featured in a cover story in Globe Magazine, repeating the allegations originally revealed by WND.
Read the latest now on

It seems that the once considered RAG Magazines are starting to gain credibility while the Main Stream Media looses their credibility and trust of the American People.

It was The Enquirer that broke the Clinton/Lewinski scandal.

It was the GLOBE that broke the scandal of John Edwards.

Now we have the on line news source, World Net Daily, and in print, The GLOBE, reporting what even Glenn Beck won't touch.

I don't know if anyone noticed yesterday, but there was no NEWS. Every major news cable station ran clips from last week. Imagine, a whole day where nothing happened in this country to report on. This is the first time that I have seen anything like this happen.

State Pension Woes Only Worsening …

by Nilus Mattive 07-06-10

I know some investors right now who are making major mistakes when it comes to retirement planning …

First, they have been consistently underestimating how much money they’ll need down the line. In essence they are pretending that inflation doesn’t exist …

Second, despite the major losses they actually experienced in their portfolios, they are acting as if those losses haven’t completely happened yet. Instead, they are basically just figuring that things will turn around if they wait long enough …

The scariest part: I’m not talking about careless individual investors, but rather the politicians and trustees running state pension plans … the collective retirements for hundreds of thousands of Americans!

State Pension Plans: Where Promises Meet Poor Planning

Solid retirement benefits have always been one of the big draws of getting a state government job.

After all, while state employees sometimes earn less than what they would receive in comparable private sector positions, they have continued to get guaranteed future retirement income even as major corporations have done away with their defined benefit pension plans.

But now, even state retirement funds are imploding, and promises are likely to get bent if not completely broken. FULL STORY

Market Manipulation On Display

It's unlawful to enter an order into a securities market for the purpose of attempting to manipulate the price - that is, to express other than a genuine intent to buy or sell.

It happens every day. But tonight, it's especially blatant, so I captured it and present it here for you.

Calif. state workers brace for minimum wage

On Friday, the Schwarzenegger administration won an appellate court ruling saying it has the authority to impose the federal minimum wage of $7.25 an hour on more than 200,000 state workers as California wrestles with its latest budget crisis. It was not immediately clear if the state controller, who cuts state paychecks on a decades-old payroll system, will comply. The office says its computers are unable to make the change until an upgrade is completed in two years.

The effect, however, was chilling for state government workers, many of whom say they have to prepare as if the pay cut will happen.

The loss of wages - even temporarily - for such a large work force would deal an especially harsh blow to the capital region, where one out of 10 workers is a state government employee. According to the state Employment Development Department, there were 84,600 state workers out of 819,100 people employed in the Sacramento region in May. The number is higher when counting colleges and universities.

A cut to a minimum wage would mean state workers would make the equivalent of $15,000 a year. The average state worker makes $65,000 annually, according to the state Department of Personnel Administration.

Schwarzenegger's minimum wage order will not affect all of California's government employees. The 37,000 state workers represented by unions that recently negotiated new contracts with the administration will continue to receive their full pay because they agreed to pay cuts and pension reforms.

Salaried managers who are not paid on an hourly basis would see their pay cut to $455 a week. FULL STORY
