The People Are NOT a Branch of Government
- J.A.I.L. News Journal
Los Angeles, California May 17, 2004The People are NOTa Branch of GovernmentThe following is a response to our JNJ "Who Will Judge the Judges." Ron stated in that JNJ: "However, it is also clear that the judiciary cannot be trusted either, and must, of necessity, have a body outside of themselves to which they are accountable. The answer certainly is not found in Judicial Commissions because of political influence and control. So, what is the answer? It is, and can only be J.A.I.L." No, Ron didn't leave out the "fourth branch of government" because government doesn't have a fourth branch. That "body outside of [the judiciary] to which [the judiciary] are accountable" is the People.Randy Gaumond, Sui Juris, gaumond3@... writes:An interesting article, except for the fact that the most important branch of our government, the fourth one, was left out. What is the fourth branch? It's US, We the People, that's who!! It's because of the dumbing down of the American populace via the public fool system and bankster controlled press that very few people ever get the slightest inkling that they actually are supposed to have any say in what goes on. Our government has run amok and now fancies itself as our master instead of the other way around.This is the precise reason that juries are supposed to be the final say on what's right or wrong, and NOT some little tyrant in a black robe sitting on his throne. Juries are supposed to made up of a person's peers, meaning his/her friends, acquaintances and neighbors, for who is better to judge him/her than the ones who know them? If someone is a scalawag or worse, or is a saint amongst men, who would know that besides those who have regular contact with them? That is when real justice is meted out.Randy Gaumond, Sui Juris
Dear Randy:Thank you for your comments to a recent J.A.I.L. News Journal. One thing that is important to realize is that the People are NOT part of government whatsoever. As the Declaration of Independence points out, the People institute government to secure their unalienable rights. The People are "the governed" and government derives its just powers from the consent of the governed, i.e., the People.The California Constitution states (italics are my comments): "All political power is inherent in the people. [not in any branch of government] Government is instituted [by the people] for their [the People's] protection, security, and benefit, and they [the People] have the right to alter or reform it [the government] when the public good may require." (Art.II, sec.1)That is the authority upon which J.A.I.L. is predicated-- the right of the People to alter or reform government. Other state constitutions have the same or similar provision, particularly the initiative states such as California. If the People were merely a branch of government, they wouldn't have that right. The People are separate from government-- indeed, superior to government. That is the truth of the relationship, no matter how it appears to be in practice.It is unfortunate that no provision was made in the Constitution for the People to be able to enforce the terms of the Constitution upon government, which provision would have been the duty and responsibility of the People in order to maintain the purpose for which government was created (instituted) by the People in the first place. It is because of the omission of such provision that "all hell broke loose in this country."Power, to be just, cannot be placed in a government made up of mortals (men/women) without a means of control by the governed (the People). But, alas, that's what happened! Power instituted in mankind (as government) becomes very quickly out of control and becomes a monster (like a wildfire) that cannot be tamed by itself. Unless it is controlled at its inception, that unleashed power grows to the point of destroying its own creator (the People)-- and we can see evidence of that happening more clearly every day! It doesn't matter how it happened-- all that matters is that it did happen. Now, only the People (with God's help of course), can do anything about it, and it must be done from outside and independently of the monster (government), not from within it.The People existed before governments existed, and it is only by the People that government exists at all! The People are the government's "creator." How can it be said that the People are part (a branch) of their own creation?The only means left for the People is J.A.I.L. J.A.I.L. will operate on a jury system, as the Initiative shows. The J.A.I.L. Special Grand Jury will determine whether a judge, complained of, should be stripped of immunity and held to answer at a jury trial at which the petit jury will have power to judge on both fact and law. Yes, the jury is an integral part of government of, by, and for the People; but it's going to take J.A.I.L. to implement the proper role of the jury system, operating autonomously and independently from government-- not as part of it.Thank you for writing.-Barbie- ACIC, J.A.I.L.
