Included below is
a writing by Dan Meador, well known researcher and expert in tax matters. While
I have greatly admired his many articles and teachings about tax law and how to
apply it, I had often wished that Dan could direct his great efforts and wisdom
toward the CAUSE of the problem rather than hack away at one of the many
effects of it. Now, I am happy to say that he
has done so. He has well identified the problem, and now we, the people, must
get on with the solution which I discuss below.
I have included only the
portions between Dan Meador and Larry Becraft,
followed by JAIL's comments. Our thanks to Jack Aiken Lancaster for sending JAIL
this powerful information.

To provide context for my comments,
I'm attaching the Declaration of Intergovernmental Dependence signed by state
and local government delegates on January [22, 1937].

The Declaration of Intergovernmental
Dependence is an historical fact.
And since state and local representatives
endorsed this and other compacts in the 1930s, the Federalism scheme has
engulfed our nation.
Federalism, also known as Cooperative
Federalism, is an existent man-made system.
The Declaration of Intergovernmental
Dependence articulates root ideology.
As a system, Federalism has substance and
the mechanics of operation.
It is purposeful. It has an end objective.
It relies on institutionalized accommodation. (It's called Matrix.)
In general, I believe most people in the
patriot community would agree with these minimum statements concerning
However, I am convinced that those who have
invested lifetimes in the existent system via profession or employment have more
difficulty coming to terms with Federalism as the vehicle for usurpation of
power and general despotism than those who are directly victimized by
I think attorneys find it more
difficult to come to terms with core system corruption than most.
I have a 1927 constitutional commentary that
probes at least part of the reason. It was written by the commissioner of the
Department of Education. In his opinion, there probably weren't any more than
ten people in the nation who truly understood the Constitution.
The foreword also mentions a report given to
the American Bar Association national conference held in Denver. The report
alleged that American law schools were turning out Constitutionally illiterate
If that was the case in the 1920s, the
situation is considerably worse today. It has to be.
In July 1995, one of the best defense
attorneys in Northern Oklahoma told me I know more about Constitutional Law than
any attorney in our country.
If that was the case then, I must know more
about Constitutional Law than all the attorneys in the country put together by
now (not to mention the judges!)
In 1990, I considered attending Law
When I went through the curriculum, I found
that only one constitutional course was required to earn a juris
I don't know for certain, but I've heard the
requirement has since been dropped!
I think this is the greatest disability
there is to the law profession.
Attorneys go through three years of law
school brainwashing, then they spend their professional lives genuflecting to
black robed bandits.
If they don't yield, and practice proper
decorum, they are banished from practice and are apt to get thrown in the
To step back far enough to conclude the
whole damn mess is a charade and accommodates usurpation of power and despotism
has to be extremely traumatic.
It's traumatic for anyone, but those who
operate within the system throughout their professional lives are even more
Larry serves as a primary example. He has

Revenue Service or the Federal Bureau of Investigation, and he knows that if it

conspicuous usurpation of power.
He recites case law that accommodates IRS,
FBI, DEA, et al, as though the decisions are legitimate.
My objective isn't to be overly critical of
Larry does a hell of a lot more for the
constitutionalist cause than most attorneys.
And among his contributions is the
occasional caution like the one above.
Remember the Texas group responsible for
Credit Money Orders? They and others who promoted similar devices are in prison.
Remember the Comptroller Warrant?
And how about the farm claim
Was there any doubt that government
would target the commercial Redemption program "Sight Draft"?
I get a giggle out of some of Larry's

English language sufficiently that his briefs are impossible to
But I learned something important from Dave:
The least common denominator.
And even though Right Way L.a.w. may not
have what is presently an effective defense, the "Straw man" (JOHN DOE) juristic
entity is a legitimate issue.
But the current commercial "Redemption"
rage, whether concerning the juristic JOHN DOE or the Treasury Account used to
"charge-back" presentments "accepted for value" will fall through the cracks
when the powers-that-be settle on strategy.
Why? Because the constitutionalist community
doesn't carry a big enough enforcement stick.
If the crook doesn't fear the cops, he has
no incentive to quit stealing.
Likewise, if the moral reprobate dressed in
black (robe) has no fear of legal reprisal, he doesn't give two hoots in hell
what paperwork someone puts in his court.
So long as he can send a county sheriff or
U.S. Marshal to nab whomever he wants, that's what he will do.
And he will continue to do it until someone
slaps his butt in jail.
Entrenched powers operate on what my mother
calls the Golden Rule: He who has the Gold makes the Rules! And they're darned
sure going to pull out the stops when people go meddling with their fiat credit
and monetary monopolies.
I don't know that I can emphasize this
enough: Those responsible for the binary system implemented here in the United
States via the Uniform Commercial Code are responsible for 40% of the world's
population going to be hungry.
They could care less about ten-thousand or
several hundred thousand patriots turned out on the street, thrown in prison, or

are doing, they will.

the credit system to the detriment of the people-- where they remain "property"
of the state as well as "what" they think they own!]
Consequently, there must be more focused
strategy that engages the contest in judicial and political forums in such
fashion as to force general disclosure.
We aren't going to secure reliable
individual remedies until we secure general remedies.
But, even before that, we're going to have
to come to grips with what we're dealing with, and the mechanics of how it

Today, we are dealing with the end product--
the product is institutionalized despotism. In order for the scheme to succeed,
it has relied on moral reprobates in virtually all decision-making positions,
particularly our court systems.
And I would suggest that since the
first quarter of the century, there hasn't been a published court decision that
isn't tainted by the underlying Federalism scheme.
This, I believe, is the great gulf that
divides Larry and me: Larry hasn't come to terms with the reality and
implications of Federalism.
I laud his research-- The two memoranda
cited earlier don't scratch the surface of his contributions, but he is
conceptually encumbered because he has yet to accept that government
institutions, particularly what passes for courts of law, are corrupt to the

In 1995 or 1996, Walker Todd, former general
counsel for the Cleveland Federal Reserve Bank, testified at one of the CMO
trials in Dallas. Todd told the jury the privately issued CMO is [as] legitimate
as those issued by banks. Banks issue the fool things every day!
But the defendants went to prison in spite
of Todd's testimony.
[Gee, I wonder what percentage of the jury
were federal employees... 75%?]

Larry knows that as well as I do, and as
well as most other patriots know. Consequently, there is common ground that even
Larry shares if he considers what he knows in that context: Our court systems
are completely reprobate, [and] they are lawless.
But on the other end of the spectrum, where
patriots will quickly agree that our courts are without even the semblance of
integrity, there is a lack of cognitive understanding.
The lack of understanding pivots on our
inability to execute and enforce lawful remedies.
Coming to terms with the
institutional Golden Rule might help understand the perils of screwing with the
current de facto credit and monetary schemes.

Dependence agreement. Then if you don't know it, read the Declaration of
Let the former soak in. Until you come to
intellectual and emotional terms with what each document means, you probably
aren't going to be able to grasp how deeply rooted this scheme is.
We are dealing with a highly organized
scheme that is entrenched throughout institutional America. So long as we pursue
individual remedies, without deploying strategy to effect general remedies, the
patriot community will continue to provide fodder for the grist

When in the course of human events it
becomes necessary for a nation to repair the fabric which unites its many
agencies of government, and to restore the solidarity which is vital to orderly
growth, it is the duty of responsible officials to define the need and to find a
way to meet it.
A way does not come of itself.
The maintenance of just and efficient
government is as intricate, as arduous, and as imperative as any human
One hundred and fifty years ago - a
government dedicated to the preservation of every man's endowment of life,
liberty and happiness.
Inevitable changes have come.
The fundamental patter of states united for
the benefits of all the people remains the same as it was when the founding
fathers wove it.
But the far flung tapestry of our many
governments has stretched so taut that the fabric has weakened.
The essential thread of cooperation too
often is lacking.
Now, for the first time since the memorable
day when the form of our Constitution was determined, official delegates of the
States are gathered together, seeking to revive the original purpose-- "to form
a more perfect union."
It was meant that the States, while creating
a nation, should yet preserve their own sovereignties and a maximum of

transportation, nor any remote communication, except by the revolutionized, by
the advent of transportation as swift as the wind and of communication more

How have our governments met their mutual
problems by this modern era?

Through established agencies of cooperation,
through uniform and reciprocal laws and regulations, through compacts under the
Constitution, through informal collaboration, and through all other means
possible, our nation, our states, and our localities must fuse their activities
with a new fervor of national unity.
We, therefore, representatives of the
officers of government here assembled, do solemnly pledge our loyal efforts to
the accomplishments of such purpose.
As our forefathers by the Declaration of
Independence affirmed their purpose to improve government for us, so do we by
this Declaration of Interdependence affirm our purpose to improve governments
for our contemporaries and for our posterity.
Note: Well, here we have
representatives of "officers" (agents/ employees)
pledging efforts and compacts for themselves and NOT FOR THE SOVEREIGN PEOPLE
whom they are servants of.
But, as to "improve" government is a bit
ludicrous, when we have more socialist/communistic
government today in America, than at any other time in our country's
Ron Branson of J.A.I.L. now writes:
Mr. Meador identifies the core problem as
follows: "Today, we are dealing with the end product-- the product is
institutionalized despotism. In order for the scheme to succeed, it has relied
on moral reprobates, in virtually all decision-making positions,
particularly our court systems." (emphasis added).
He goes on to say that lawyers who operate
within the court system throughout their professional lives are "conceptually encumbered because [they do not] accept that
government institutions, particularly what passes for courts of law, are
corrupt to the core!" (emphasis added).
I call people who constantly make
excuses for the judiciary "apologists for the
courts." We receive so many on our email saying that the court is acting
properly because-- and the list goes on: we are
slaves; we have no rights, only privileges; we're under marshal law; the
Constitution has been suspended; the country is bankrupt; the courts operate
under commerce; and many more excuses. Most of these people consider themselves
"patriots" and yet they buy into these schemes.
When I tell them that we have no forum for
redress and that it's the judiciary that are responsible for the ruination of our lives, I am told "The judges aren't
to blame. They're only doing what the system allows them to do. Judges are
making the right decisions according to the codes they are operating
under." Those "patriots" closest to me and who've known
me personally for many years, who
know what I stand for, who know about the years
I've sought redress of grievances in the courts-- including fourteen
petitions to the U.S. Supreme Court over the years involving several cases-- are lukewarm, at best, to the cause I am promoting.
At an annual patriots' picnic, one of my
patriot friends told me "We don't need judicial accountability. We have our own
common law courts." She has since fled the state and I haven't heard from
her since. But there are others here who belong to the "Jural Society" who
believe the same way.
Many of my friends in the
patriot community today
are heavily involved in the "current commercial 'Redemption' rage" as Dan calls it.
He says that that program "will fall through the cracks when the powers-that-be
settle on strategy."
I cringe when I hear
redemptionists tell me "We're winning in
court with the strawman strategy. Judges are speechless when we approach them
using this program. We've got 'em cold! They have no alternative but to rule in
our favor, as long as you file the proper paperwork, and say the right thing,
using the proper wording." (This is the general gist of what they tell
I say to myself "It's just a
matter of time for these dear, sincere folks." As Dan says, "[T]hey're
[the tyrants] darned sure going to pull
out the stops when people go meddling with their fiat credit and monetary
monopolies." One dedicated redemptionist was unable to receive her
teacher's retirement for some time, but now
she is receiving it in full by using the program. She's convinced that she has
found the right method. As the saying goes, "The proof is in the pudding."
Dan says that this "silver bullet" isn't
going to last. "Why? Because the constitutionalist community doesn't carry a big
enough stick. If the crook doesn't fear the cops, he has no incentive to quit
stealing. Likewise, if the moral reprobate dressed in black (robe) has no fear
of legal reprisal, he doesn't give two hoots in hell what paperwork someone puts
in his court. So long as he can send a county sheriff or U.S. Marshal to nab
whomever he wants, that's what he will do. And he will continue to do it until
someone slaps his butt in jail."
Dan states that "there must be more
focused strategy that engages the contest in judicial and political forums in
such a fashion as to force general disclosure. We aren't going to secure
reliable individual remedies until we secure general remedies."
In other words, I believe what Dan is saying
here is that before any of us, as individuals, can expect to get redress in our
courts, we have to develop a system of the people, separate and independent of
the powers-that-be, that will hold the "moral reprobates dressed in black robes"
to account for their tyrannical actions, i.e., "force general disclosure."
That is exactly the objective of the Judicial Accountability Initiative
Law. (JAIL). For the non-initiative states, and for federal
accountability, it's called the Judicial Accountability & Integrity
Legislation (JAIL) which has the same objective.
We can see that the government has
usurped its power over the people, not only by reading the "Declaration of Interdependence of the Governments" but in
everyday life by observing and experiencing
the fact that the people are blocked, by lawless judicial tyrants (moral
reprobates), from receiving judicial redress of grievances in our courts.
Furthermore, this blockage is sealed
and secured by the judge-made doctrine of
"judicial immunity" which allows these tyrants to do as they please with
impunity. To exacerbate this problem, these moral reprobates have consistently
abused the doctrine to the point where we, the people, MUST rise up to our duty
to halt this abuse as a matter of our survival
as a free people in this nation under the
precepts of our Constitution.
The Preamble of the JAIL Initiative in
California states: "We, the People of California, find that the doctrine of
judicial immunity has been greatly abused; and when judges abuse their power,
the people are obliged - it is their duty - to correct that injury, for the
benefit of themselves and their posterity. In order to ensure judicial
accountability and domestic tranquility, we hereby amend Article I of our
Constitution with these provisions, which shall be known as "The
Judicial Accountability Amendment."
This California initiative is
authorized by Article II, Section 1, of the California Constitution, which
states: "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." [Former Section 26 of Article
I, as renumbered June 8, 1976.]
Other initiative states, I believe
there are 26, have similar provision. In California the provision was renumbered
in June of 1976. The Declaration of Interdependence of Governments was signed in
1937. According to the above California provision, the 1937 document doesn't
serve the purpose for which government was instituted which is for the
"protection, security, and benefit" of the people.
Dan himself notes at the end of the article
that under the 1937 document, we have representatives employed by government
pledging "protection, security, and benefit" for THEMSELVES, and not the sovereign people for whom they are to provide those
Clearly, government is NOT providing
"protection, security, and benefit" to the people. A judiciary accountable to
the people is necessary for "their protection, security, and benefit" and the
people have the basic right to ensure the effectiveness of those attributes to
themselves BY the government, as well as to ensure the enforcement of all the
several basic rights of the people delineated under Article I, by means of "The
Judicial Accountability Amendment" to Article I of the California Constitution.
The same principle applies to other states.
The Declaration of Independence
provides: "... That to secure these
[unalienable] rights, governments are instituted among men, deriving their just
powers from the consent of the governed, that whenever any form of government
becomes destructive of these ends, it is the right of the people to alter or to
abolish it, and to institute new government, laying its foundation on such
principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most
likely to effect their safety and happiness. ..."
The JAIL Initiative is the power of
the people to enforce judicial accountability only when the existing judicial
system fails. JAIL is about the power of the people in the first instance. JAIL
is not intended to be a government function, nor can it be if it is to serve the
purpose for which it is written. The JAIL provision must remain separate and
independent of any function of government.
It is imperative to distinguish between the
power of the people and the function of government in serving the people. JAIL
provides a means by which the people, not the government, can hold judges to
account when the government, i.e., the judiciary (the moral reprobates), fails
to function according to the Constitution and compatible law.
The people have found that the government
has failed to achieve its purpose, and more particularly the judicial branch, by
the abusive use of the judge-made, self-serving doctrine of judicial immunity.
Insofar as the enforcement of judicial immunity precludes or prevents the
protection, security, and benefit of the people, such doctrine must be set aside
in order for government to carry out its purpose.
The people have the basic right to challenge
the function of government by redress of grievances to the judiciary which right
must remain open and available to the people for that purpose without government
(judicial) interference. Today, the basic right of redress by the people to
their government is being blocked by the government with the abusive enforcement
of judicial immunity.
"...But when a long train of abuses and
usurpations, pursuing invariably the same object evinces a design to reduce them
under absolute despotism, it is their right, it is their duty,
(emphasis added) to throw off such government, and to provide new guards for
their future security. ..." (Declaration of Independence, July 4,
Folks, the time has come, and is long
overdue, for JAIL-- the only answer to this "institutionalized despotism."
