The Battle Lines are Drawn: J.A.I.L. versus The Foreign Power
A Power Foreign to Our Constitution
Statement JNJ Library
By Susan Kennedy - flamingfury@...
Truly, it can
be said that Susan Kennedy was the
very first single-handed “editing committee” of “J.A.I.L.”
when she asked me if she could make some needed grammatical and clerical corrections.
I said, ‘Sure.”
The ink on the
“J.A.I.L.” paper had not even dried when Susan first contributed to
what has become the foundation of the National J.A.I.L. Movement. Susan has
been a life-long legal secretary, (Ret.), having worked for many law firms.

I'd like to
chime in on the 8th Circuit (which borders the 5th Cir at Texarkana) and general uselessness of the
laws in place---because no one enforces them---with respect to judicial
accountability and vetting of candidates.
It's been six
years, so I can't give specific citations, but here's what happened:
In early 2003
I attended a seminar on the law. In the course of the day, the presenter
informed us that there were two brothers sitting on the 8th Circuit Court of
Appeals in direct violation of federal law. I learned that the 8th Circuit
panel did indeed have on it Richard Sheppard Arnold and Morris Sheppard Arnold,
both born in Texarkana.
Richard was appointed by Carter and Morris by GHW Bush (41).
It just so
happens that my congressional district is "served" by one totally
useless turd named Howard Berman, who just happens to warm a seat (currently
the Vice Chair) on the House Judiciary Committee. What better person to
ask how federal judges are vetted for legibility and how this could
I wrote a
letter dated April, 2003. This was a polite request to Berman asking basically
how judges are vetted and stating that my curiosity was piqued by my discovery
of the two brothers sitting on the 8th Circuit bench. I cited the specific
federal statute forbidding consanguinity on a federal bench.
It is now six
years later, and I haven't even received the customary form letter that
"our office is looking into it" or "our office referred it to
the appropriate department"! Of course, Howard Berman has his own
conflict-of-interest issues. After the census of 2000, in preparation for
the constitutionally mandated redistricting that follows, Berman managed to get
an appointment for one Michael Berman --- his brother --- to the commission
that draws the district boundary lines.
As of result
of Berman's nepotism, his district is so safe the Republicans couldn't even
find one candidate to run against Berman in the 2008 primary. Unless some
drastic changes are made after the 2010 census, we'll be stuck with this
useless piece of crud until he dies in office.
As for the 8th
CA, that problem was solved in 2004 when Richard Arnold died - as reported in
the LA Daily Journal of the day. His brother, however, is still a senior
circuit judge on the 8th Circuit bench.
If this is
typical of the way judges (and candidates --- right up to the White House) are
vetted for eligibility, then it is clear that those tasked to do so are not
doing their jobs. And if virtually anonymous clerks are allowed to
dispose of cases, particularly impeachment cases, then any hope for
accountability is lost . . . .
Unless we can
anger enough people that we can overcome an equal level of corruption in vote
counting and pass some measure that puts accountability back into the hands of
the people, such as JAIL4Judges!
J.A.I.L. (Judicial Accountability Initiative Law) www.jail4judges.org, has been in
existence since 1995, and is in all 50 states and foreign countries.
