I certainly relate to her frustration. What was going through
the minds of those on the senatorial panel was, "Oh, brother,
here we have to listen to another one of our disgruntled
constituents who does not appreciate our services we are
providing them. We have to give up ten minutes of our valuable
time appearing to care. We can hardly wait until her time is
up so we can say, 'Thank you, Ms. Capogrosso, we will follow
up on this.' "
The problem, Bill, and I speak from
experience, she, as well as many of us, is seeking redress
from the very ones interested in keeping things just the way
they are. One of the last things they want is judicial
accountability, because once the judges are accountable, then
they will have to be accountable. Hear this. The judges are
but the protective alligators swimming around in the mot
surrounding their Legislative and Executive Castle. They are
in this tyranny all together. No one in any branch of
government wants to see accountability brought to bear, for
accountability would derail their gravy train for them all and
embarrass all those in government. They are in a competitive
contest with one another to get the bootee before some other
public official feeding at the same troff gets theirs.
Consider the city manager of a small town "earning" $800,000 a
year to hold the title of city manager.
What I now state, I state to you all. We have to wake up and
realize you are addressing a self-interested body who is does
not care about your plight. Their only concern is that
hopefully these frustrated People will not rise up and take
matters into their own hands and that they loose their cushie
job with all its perks and benefits. This is all they are
When will we learn that if there is to come about real change
on behalf of the People, it must come directly from the
People, and from nowhere else. We must be the Alpha and the
Omega, the first and the last when it comes to public
accountability. We must dictate the specific terms and
conditions without consulting them on the wisdom of our ways.
This is why our Founding Fathers provided within our
Constitution a Grand Jury system. However, we gave ear to
these self-interest servants, and we let them dictate to us
the When, Where, and circumstances in which have access to our
Grand Juries. In affect, we allowed them to steal away, "with
our permission mind you," our most powerful weapon, the
Grand Jury system. It is the Grand Jury power that must be
restored to us at any cost!
This is precisely what JAIL4Judges will accomplish, nothing
more, and nothing less. The problem is, the People are too
ignorant to recognize what they have done, must less, how to
fix the problem. The "fix" has already been provided for them
within JAIL4judges, but the People still are ignorant as to
what they have done.
To accomplish restoring our freedom, the People must exercise
our power within the Constitutional Initiative Process as
provided us in Article II, Sec. 1 of the California
Constitution, "All political power is inherent in the people.
Government is instituted for their protection, security, and
benefit, and they have the right to alter or reform it when
the public good may require." Other states have similar
If I may give the Branson expanded version, it is, "All
political power is absolutely inherent in the People
exclusively, and in no other. Their public servants, to whom
they have lent conditional consent, have only the limited and
temporary power granted to them to defend our rights.
Notwithstanding this, the People retain the absolute right and
power to alter and/or reform everything respecting their
future affairs at any time they so choose."
This directive is also permanently scribed in our Declaration
of Independence, to wit; "That to secure these rights,
governments are instituted among men, deriving their just
powers from the consent of the governed..."
Governments have no permanent or enduring power whatsoever.
Rather, we retain the power even to dismiss our servants at
will. To help you understand what I am saying, I suggest
everyone read the homepage of http://www.sd-jail4judges.org.
Ron... a copy of my
post to Bob Grundstein... he is an attorney who is fighting
the WA State Bar... here is my reply to him.... please
consider the last paragraph.
Mr. Grundstein, all that you say here I have found to be true
through my own experience with the WSBA. And I have learned, by
searching the Web, that what happens in WA State is happening all
over this country. For example NY... just listen to Eleanor
Capogrosso, ESQ., in her testimony before the NY Senate Judiciary
Committee BACK in 2009 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vJ38bwjpSuA
Nothing, in NY, was done! Why? I can only guess that the "power
players" ...are in firm control of this corrupt system.... and it
reaches deep and wide into our judicial, legislative and executive
branches. IT IS A PROBLEM OF BEING TOO BIG TO FAIL (to fix).
Consider this .... as government gets bigger so does it liability
insurance. Said another way as government get bigger so will the
number of lawsuits filed against the government for which it must
defend. Who is on the hook to pay for these lawsuits? Insurance
companies, taxpayers. How does government protect its own
liability exposure and the coast on taxpayers.... it rigs the
system -- likely with the help of insurance companies.
Arnie, there are two standards at play here. One is the
correct and legal process, and the other is reality, i.e.,
the way things are. The bottom line is that when there is
a conflict between these two wills, People vs. government,
it is the will of the People that must prevails This is
precisely what JAIL4judges assures when the People decide
they want to take actually charge over their future
affairs and not just; march on Washington, grandstand,
make platitudes and speeches of high-sounding words, sable
rattle, have meetings of Meet, Greet, Eat, Retreat, and
Repeat, huff and puff to blow their enemies houses down,
etc, et al.
Now, let me talk practical (reality) about your below
prescribed "remedy," on the truth of the matter and how it
really is. You are correct that the judges and politicians
are "bound" by their Oaths of Office, but who is going to
enforce it? We would like to think that it is enforceable
by the courts and by the sheriffs. We hope that another
judge will recognize our plight and pass down a judgment
against the offender of their sacred duty. But we have to
I have brought suit against the offender's bonds. So what
happened? Reality was, the bondholders was dismissed from
the lawsuit on the first court appearance, and that issue
was preserved for later on appeal.
So everyone believes against reality that the Appellate
Court will hear the argument on appeal. But, again, we
have to face reality, a hearing for justice on reality is
not going to happen.
Oh sure you can take this petition on up further on
appeal, but reality is, they are definitely not
interested. Just how do you think we got in this mess
anyway in the first place? It was not by the courts,
Appellate Courts, and even the U.S. Supreme Court,
listening to our petitions.
From thereon, we can wish for justice until we get
frustrated and decide to take matters into our own hands.
JAIL4judges came about by this very means, i.e., someone
(I think his name was Ron Branson) got frustrated and
decided that we have to take matters into our own hands.
This man developed a remedy, but what this man, Ron
Branson, found out the People were not ready to exercise a
remedy. Ron Branson found out that that it was not the
judges that was the real problem, but dumb People. This
cycle shall continue to go around in circles in
frustration seeking a "legal" way out of their dilemma
until they ultimately get more frustrated and decide to go
This is the reality of where we are now, searching for a
remedy that does not involve the principles set forth
within JAIL4Judges. So we now have this guy, Ron Branson,
sitting by watching People get frustrated in looking for a
remedy. This cycle shall continue going around and around
without a remedy until the People actually go to arms, not
just talk about it, for lack of a remedy. But arms is not
really a remedy, but the evidence of the lack of a remedy.
But the reality is, we are not without an actual remedy,
it is just that the People hope against hope that a
revolution will be cheaper, faster, and more successful
than the actual remedy proposed by this guy, Ron Branson.
The following quote is credited to Pogo, "We have met the
enemy and he is us." The remedy is, we must defeat this
evil enemy spoken of by Pogo who stands in the way of
victory. Until we do, we shall be like a jack ass pursuing
a carrot dangling from a string, and continue to go around
and around and around and ....."
