Judge Gives Plug For
Approximately a month ago on June
15th we reported on an incident involving a Nick Jesson under the title of,
"What's Going On Here." This article generated very much interest. Today, the
editor of the J.A.I.L. News Journal decided to take a hundred and twenty mile
round trip to attend the court proceedings initiated by Mr.
Jesson challenging this unwarranted action of government. The results
As a foundation, we are reprinting a
small portion of the article as reported by us last month.
What's Going On Here?
Nick Jesson, No Time Delay Electronics
Subject: California Franchise Tax Board [F.T.B.]
Thursday, June 14, 2001
On May 2, 2001, 25 F.T.B.
Agents came into my office. They did not
knock, or announce who they
were. They STORMED though our office
doors with GUNS pointed at
each of the 18 workers there, YELLING, "move away from your desk, and you
will not get HURT"!!! Three Agents broke though my wife's office, and
all three held guns to her head. My wife is 4'10' and 95 pounds, yet
the F.T.B. felt that it took three of them with guns drawn, to make sure
she didn't hurt any of those poor weak F.T.B. Agents.
Even with guns
pointed at her head, and having her life in danger, she still had the
courage to ask who they were. Their answer was they didn't need to tell
her! Also, she asked if they had a search warrant, once again she was
told they didn't need to give her a search warrant. This started at 8:45 a.m.
and lasted until 10:55 p.m.
As of JUNE 9th, 2001 no charges have yet to be filed, nor
has the search
warrant been filed. Each time we have been in Court we
were told that because I was not a defendant, that my 4th Amendment rights
had no bearing. Well if the JUDGE would read the 4th Amendment, he would
see that nowhere does it state that our 4th Amendment doesn't apply unless
you are charged first! If this were the case, then that would mean
government could come into every Citizens home, at any time, without
search warrant, steal your belongings and keep them forever, or
until they file some sort of charges! [How does
this differ from a home robbery?]

Today, July 13th at 1:30 pm. the author of
J.A.I.L. attended the court proceeding in Fullerton, CA. of Nick Jesson, who
happens to also be running for Governor of California on the GOP Ticket.
The judge presiding in Department N-17 was James P. Marion, a man whom
we have never met nor seen before, nor have known anything
The nature of the proceeding was Mr. Jesson's challenge
of the validity of the search warrant involving the above raid, since no crime
was ever charged against him. Naturally, true to the nature of the judicial
system in protecting the government, Judge Marion dismissed his challenge. No
surprise to us.
At the conclusion of the proceeding, out of the clear
blue, Judge Marion said he wanted to state on the record that he noted "quite a
few in the courtroom wearing a certain type of t-shirt that said www dot and
something about putting judges in jail dot com." He said to let it be noted for
the record that "this judge will not be influenced by those t-shirts." He said
"There are thousands of emails from all over the country about this matter
but I don't read any of them." He stated to counsel representing Mr.
Jesson that he didn't know what connection he has with that organization, but to
just realize it isn't going to affect the case one way or the other. He again
emphasized that he wanted to note this on the record, and then got up and left
The fact is that there were only four of us wearing
J.A.I.L. t-shirts, and all of us sat in back rows behind others in the audience.
Nothing whatsoever drew attention to the t-shirts during the proceeding, and we
were all caught by surprise at the judge's remarks. If J.A.I.L. gets this kind
of reaction by a judge where only four people in one courtroom were wearing
J.A.I.L. t-shirts, what would happen if there were 15 to 20 t-shirt wearers
in several courtrooms as is contemplated in the future?
In the hall outside the courtroom, Mr. Branson walked
up to one of the people of the Jesson group and laid his right hand on his
shoulder and said to the gentleman "I'm not afraid of you, I'm really not!" to
which another man responded "Then why are you bringing it up?" Mr. Branson then
stated "I am NOT a crook." This exchange generated a hearty laugh among the
group, and Mr. Branson said, "That judge gave J.A.I.L. quite a plug, and if he
thinks there are thousands of emails going out around the country, he's going to
find one more with his name on it." Mr. Branson also noted that if this
unknown judge knows about the thousands of emails going around the
country, doubtless so do the judges in the other departments in the
This judge's comments at the conclusion of the
proceeding made the 120 mile round-trip worth while. It is becoming
apparent that the judges across this nation, although silent, know J.A.I.L. is
out there, and is causing them to think! (Oh, the power of four people wearing
t-shirts in a courtroom.)
