Is That "Light"Dear Ron,
When I managed the law office my employer once took an interest in some of the groups I was monitoring and he was interested in possibly speaking at one of these gatherings so he asked me to research who and what may be presented in public forums, gatherings and meetings.
If I recall, there was this March on Washington D.C being planned, and something V.O.C.A.L. was doing in Las Vegas, and I was able to provide him with some other events that might be of interest to his inquiries.
The first words out of his mouth was how foolish these people were who thought that they could compete for attention in Washington D.C. where there is news happening on a moments notice.This strategy is definitely appropriate! When everyone is planting corn, you want to plant wheat. When everyone is planting peas, you want to plant potatoes. When everyone is buying, it is generallygood advice to sell.
Prior to the existence of J.A.I.L., all eyes everywhere were fixed upon looking solely to elected officials within the legislative system for a cure. Then came along J.A.I.L. which has hammered away at another entirely different route, that of not looking to the system, but to looking to themselves to act with an exclusive focus upon the judiciary.
We have come a long way since J.A.I.L. first started in which we are witnessing the sharp rise of judicial reform fronts in the last five years. I could name a number of people and organizations that have sprouted up due to the existence of J.A.I.L.'s focused message.
He soon enough lost interest and I asked him what he thought would work better and he told me that everyone in Michigan should focus on one county, picket that courthouse and get that judge investigated and removed and then move on to the next county.
As we know, J.A.I.L. operates upon several fronts. One nationally, the other within the states, and the final within each county. From my perspective here at headquarters, I primarily deal with general J.A.I.L. policies, internal media, and keeping single focus nationally. The only "national" front we have beside this is the Federal J.A.I.L. Bill directed squarely at Congress. Even there, we place this effort on very low priority in favor of a specific unique target state to start the domino process. We are ready to go and chomping at the bit, but lack one important ingredient, "financing." When our target state becomes obvious, and we have the resources to potentially carry this off, then I will instruct all other 49 states to focus on assisting in whatever way they can. But this state must be able to proceed with "True" J.A.I.L. as it is written to set our precedent.
In the meantime, all states are instructed, through their Wardens and counties, to recruit more and more JAILers through their activities. These activities would include targeting, exposing and seeking to remove a particular judge, and when we have done so, our own internal "media," if not the establishment media, will make the best of it.
Obviously the entire nation of JAILers, or an entire state, could not physically attend a protest at a courthouse in a single county some place, and we want to discourage mere observers. We want JAILers to be active participants. Our "targeting" practically must be done on the county level by the Warden, or multi-county level as organized by an Associate JAILer-In-Chief. This would be their primary duty.
Within National J.A.I.L., there are several fronts going on at the same time just as an overseer of an orange grove would be unwise to assign his entire crew to stripping just one tree in the orchard.
He mentioned that there would be no need to issue press releases because sooner, or later, the press is going to come snooping around and ask questions. All you have to do is pick a county where you will not have to compete with other news and half of the battle is won right there.
Small victories are worthwhile successes to build upon and by the time you start on the next judge there will be a larger following and the job becomes easier.
A steady presence is more effective than few and infrequent appearances, even if the steady presence starts out small. It is the long periods of silence that can kill most efforts because lack of communication creates confusion and saying "a little something" when there is nothing much to say is better than saying nothing at all because there is not "wonderful news" to offer.
I agree with this policy as it pertains to Wardens. It is always our hope that the Wardens will direct their counties with persistence and diligence.
I can remember a time when I thought my case and my cause was going to change the entire legal system and expose the injustices that I have suffered. I have since learned how much my own attorney encouraged this "misguided thinking" and led me to consider how sorry the other side was going to be when they found out who my attorney was.
What a farce and what a show, just for my benefit, until the bill came due and the court order entered.
I believe everyone goes through this "shock" of learning just how uniformly corrupt the entire judiciary is. I remember thinking that I had gotten hold of a uniquely corrupt judge, and the appellate court would swallow their Adam's apple and strongly rebuke this judge when they viewed my case. What I learned in due time was that the entire judicial system was corrupt, and that the higher up one goes, the more corrupt it gets. This is why to this very day I receive emails from those who have "found a corrupt judge," and think J.A.I.L. should consider making a "poster-boy" example of their judge. As recent as yesterday we received information of a judge in the writer's case that should be made a "prime example" by National J.A.I.L.
Now I often see the same fire in many other eyes who have taken on a cause, but there is a lot of work to do, and too many people expect someone else to do it.
A small victory and a small accomplishment does wonders for the soul, the cause, and the followers.
Perhaps Douglas John Fitzgerald has at least made an offer worth trying, because it just might work after all, and that cannot be bad, nor cause any major setbacks I can see. Even a small State like Rhode Island, or Vermont, could be the straw that breaks the camel's back, or makes the first domino fall.
At least as far as I read, this Douglas John Fitzgerald was not really speaking policy as much as he was offering strategy. It may be more worthwhile to include this strategy when and where it would offer the best results.
Terry: This is Barbie. The statement you made above hit me especially because I must admit that I was under the impression that Fitzgerald was suggesting that J.A.I.L. change its mission (policy). That's why I responded by saying: "The main reason your suggestion is not conducive to the J.A.I.L. agenda and mission is that your idea must be implemented within the existing judicial system." Having read what you said and Ron's comments here, I now understand that Fitzgerald's idea might be a strategy that could be used at the local (county) level as a means of promoting J.A.I.L., but not changing J.A.I.L.'s national policy. That is similar to the distinction of the Oath of Office issue and J.A.I.L.'s national policy. While pursuing the Oath issue may be a strategy at the local level, it is not national policy. That may clear up a lot of misunderstanding that many of us have had. While J.A.I.L.'s policy is very narrow, and must be, there are several strategies that may be pursued in promoting J.A.I.L. However, the strategies themselves are not the J.A.I.L. agenda. There is a distinction. Thanks Terry for bringing this to "light" (no pun intended). I apologize for my misunderstanding-- I feel better now. So far the feedback has been about 50-50 pro and con on that JNJ, but no one else has pointed out that distinction. I think this is material enough to warrant sending this out as a follow-up JNJ.
Many lawyers have told me: "Of course the courts are corrupt but the public doesn't know it, or seem to care, and besides there is an easier way to deal with these things!" It would be accurate to say that many attorneys who have become frustrated with the legal system have concluded:
"It is useless to try to change these things, for it is so much simpler to conduct yourself in a manner so that these things don't affect you."
It may be true that the problems many face are the ones they have accepted when there certainly are alternatives to consider.
I myself, for one, am committed to seeing these changes come about, and if something works towards my own goals and will only make my task easier, then it is worth it in the long run, especially if it does not require that I stop what I am doing as a condition that it may work.
I never saw my support of J.A.I.L. as a threat to what I was doing before I ever heard of J.A.I.L.
In fact, I cannot think of any other groups, or advocacy issues, I could publicly endorse since I have been active in legal reform.! J.A.I.L. has been the one and only exception in this matter. Supporting J.A.I.L. has only required that I add to what I want to accomplish and has not demanded that I make any compromises for what I was doing before I became aware of J.A.I.L.
J.A.I.L is another tool I could use, yet I do not have to, but I want this tool. J.A.I.L. has passed my own personal test a long time ago:
Terry, I know I need not tell you this, but J.A.I.L. is the cause of all causes, the unifier of all agendas, the organization of all organizations, the coalition of all coalitions, and the summation of all right thinking. Without it, there can be no lasting freedom and liberty, nor can there be any positive future for this country.
If what is decided to be right for Social Workers, Expert Witnesses, Courts, Prosecutors, Judges and the Parents, is wrong for the child, then it was not right to begin with!
Even the mighty oak had to start out as a little nut.
My Best Regards,
Terry L. Fesler

J.A.I.L. Is That "Light"Our thanks to Douglas John, Fitzgerald, a recent subscriber to the JNJ list, for showing his interest in J.A.I.L. by making his suggestion on how to improve our methods of promoting J.A.I.L. We appreciate his taking the time to do so. Below his original message is Barbie's response to Doug which is self-explanatory. It is true, as Doug says, that we are to bring light of judicial corruption to public scrutiny. J.A.I.L. is that light.Any comments to Doug may be sent to him at fellowship2u@... * * *----- Original Message -----From: DougTo: VictoryUSA@...Sent: Saturday, August 09, 2003 9:41 PMDear Ron, As one who has spent his entire business career motivating and promoting causes, I am qualified to tell you that what you are attempting to do is a fabulously complicated goal requiring supreme organizational skills which are severely lacking in the fact you are recruiting common folks and directing others to folks who are lost as to how to effectively organize an area. This is not a critical message.... simply a professional observation. My qualifications include a lifetime of buying and using electronic media to both inform and motivate the public to react. You need to redirect your efforts from attempting to create another political faction in the already fractured political landscape. Instead I recommend that you focus all your attention on selectively focusing on a corrupt judge and removing him. Advertise the fact of the removal and ask for examples of judicial corruption from those experiencing the wrath of the corruption. Bringing light on the subject (judge) and his corruption to the scrutiny of the general public will result in publicity that you will have for free that you never could afford to purchase. Your effect will be greater, your voice will be louder, and the results will be guaranteed. Bringing light - lots of light to the situation will bring the desired result. Use your resources to do super sleuthing on the intended target and you'll become a much more effective force. Publicity will be free bringing light to the table... Good luckDouglas John, FitzGeraldfellowship2u@...
