The Problem With Commissions
By Ron Branson

All throughout America People are facing hopeless despair. They just do not know what to do. Well spoken are the words of Hosea the Prophet in Hosea 4:6, "My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee..."
In hopes they may find a remedy, People create commissions. We have commissions for everything, panels of people seated for the purpose of investigating those within their jurisdiction. But one fact appears universal, and that is, because of the sin nature of all mankind, these created commissions always cover for the evil done by the object of their commission.
This very day, March 19, 2012, I picked up the mail, and therein I found a book whose price listed was $18 entitled, "Trapped In The Lawyers' Den With Bloodsuckers," sent to me unsolicited. In the the mailing package was a letter from the author seeking to gain my interest. I read the letter which she received in response to her grievance complaint of attorney misconduct to the North Carolina State Bar. Its words inspired me to write this piece which I have entitled, "The Problem With Commissions."
It contained a letter addressed to a Ms. McKay: which says, "This is to advise that your grievance complaint filed against the above-named attorney has been investigated by the Office of The North Carolina State Bar. The investigation and your grievance affidavit were presented to the Grievance Committee.
After due consideration the Committee was of the opinion that the conduct of which you complained did not justify a finding of probable cause indicating that the above named attorney violated the Code of Professional Responsibility of The North Carolina State Bar.
Therefore, at the meeting of the Grievance Committee held on January 16, ... the complaint filed by you was dismissed, and your are hereby notified accordingly."
I found these words to be so typical of all the letters which I have ever seen from "investigating commissions." Essentially, every response from the State Judicial Commissions contain near verbatim words. The letters contain no identity of the person who is complained about, and no particulars, merely "an investigation was conducted as to the person you complained about, and it was found at our meeting of whatever date, that there was no probable cause indicating that the named person within your grievance complaint has violated whatever authority of which that commission considers to be its authority."
Government Commissions invariably cover for government corruption, the Security and Exchange Commission covers for financial corruption, the Medical Commissions cover for Medical Doctors, the State Bar Associations cover for attorneys, and Judicial Commissions invariable cover for all judicial corruption, no matter what the corruption may be. So what is the problem? It is the sinful nature of mankind that started in the Garden of Eden with Adam. If you want corruption to flourish, create a commission over it, and you will be assured that corruption will abound.
The People of the City of Los Angeles created an Ethics Commission because of ethic corruption in city government. I went and sat before it. When I heard what was taking place, I asked the commission for recognition. When I got it, I piped up and said, "From what I see going on here, it will not be long before this Ethics Commission will be facing complaints from the public of Ethics violations. The chairman of the commission responded immediately, "They already are!" Question: Are we then supposed to create a Super Ethics Commission to investigate the Ethics Commission?
It is true that our Founding Fathers experienced in England the overriding influence of King George, the III over the entire judiciary. To counter this, our Founding Fathers determined to cover this flaw for all federal judges by giving them lifetime tenure, and protected lifetime salaries that could not be diminished. Their intent was well-meaning, as they wanted federal judges to be a liberty to rule righteously without fear of intimidation. But, what really happened? It in fact gave the all federal judges the confidence that they could do evil with both hands diligently. The Lord was familiar with this very principle of which I here discuss, and He placed a warning with our Bibles, which we have disregarded. "The good man is perished out of the earth: and there is none upright among men: they all lie in wait for blood; they hunt every man his brother with a net. That they may do evil with both hands earnestly, the prince asketh, and the judge asketh for a reward; and the great man, he uttereth his mischievous desire: so they wrap it up. The best of them is as a brier: the most upright is sharper than a thorn hedge:" Micah 7:2-4.
Now that we have discussed that commissions, whatever purpose they be created for, just do not work, is there any answer? Yes, there is! But here too we must be absolutely be guarded as it depends upon discouraging dishonesty. It is the Independent Special Grand Jury created by the Judicial Accountability Initiative Law (J.A.I.L.). Now you say, what makes J.A.I.L. so different, it is still People tempted to be dishonest? It is because, unlike commissions, it rotates two Grand Jurors off the Grand Jury every month, and replaces them with new Jurors. The theory is, we just cannot give these Grand Jurors the time to enjoy becoming corrupt, or should that happen, they may be corrupt only for a very short time. In this manner we get a cross-section of all society with its common denominator of its propensity to be corrupt. This is the best we can do until we can get some perfect, sinless men in there to sit in judgment with absolute no ulterior motives.
Within J.A.I.L. we preclude most every profession sitting on these Special Grand Juries which will likely have a conflict of interest, and give we give them no possibility of a retirement therein. Therefore, we exclude all judges, all judicial personnel, all lawyers, all prosecutors, all law enforcement, and all law enforcement personnel right up front. Because the pool is made up solely of volunteers with no possibility of retirement benefits, only those of the lower level will volunteer to serve thereon. It is obvious that no corporate CEO will choose to serve, or no one unwilling to give up one year of their profession from an ideal or prosperous job. Only the down and outers, and especially the homeless and unfortunate will find this position to be an opportunity of a lifetime.
The ones who should have ultimate temporary and unreviewable power over the mightiest of all judges on within this country on the issue of ethics should be the most unconnected, the downtrodden, those not owning a home, a bank or a savings account, a car, or a job, etc. "Set them to judge who are least esteemed..." as thus saith the Lord, I Corinthians 6:4. These downtrodden will be paid at the same rate as the judges over whom they in judgment, who decide whether a judge has willfully violated his Oath of Office or any laws that govern their conduct.
Commissions will never work, so we must have temporary, rotating common simple people who look not to be rich and wealthy, or who have negative aspirations to be re-elected to office, or who look to security, and a lifetime tenure. It is to these downtrodden who must ultimately decide our ultimate ethic issues. "Hearken, my beloved brethern, Hath not God chosen the poor of this world ... Do not rich men oppress you, and draw you before the judgment seats?" James 2:5 & 6.
If we ever expect America to recover and become prosperous again, harken to what I say. There is no other way. Only through justice within our judiciary can prosperity for the common People ever happen, for "Righteousness exalteth a nation:" Proverbs 14:34. Judicial Immunity is absolutely inconsistent with a future prosperous America! We shall otherwise pay the price for ignoring this advice!
