Jo commented on The Civil Judge Advocates Council by Judge Anna von Reitz

The Civil Judge Advocates Council was formed when researchers discovered a startling fact— although the Alaska Legislature …

Thank you, Anna.

Your article does give a peek at what happened to our common law grand juries here in America. I have done a lot of reading and there are two articles that pertain to your subject and may genrally and/or specifically tells how all this took place. I am sure there are mountains of articles out there as well, but these two I read about a year ago and they really get into some of the reasons…and you can be rest assured it was done on purpose.

We know the current Federal and Federal STATE courts are running on chancery and equity, and as you put it in your “proverbial “missing piece” statement, these judicial systems are depending on presuming we are United States citizens.

This, I believe, is done on purpose and does not excuse the people from waking up and fixing it when it was happening. It sure would’ve been a lot easier to untangle when it was happening then instead of many years now down the road.

I am working with the National Liberty Alliance and there are two articles that come to my mind regarding your article and how and when this happened here in America. These two articles are:

1.) The Federal Grand Jury is the 4th Branch of Government by Leo C. Donofrio, J.D., January 22, 2009. Here is the link: http://www.freedom-school.com/law/federal-grand-jury.html

2.) “Grand Jury Under Attack” by Richard D. Younger, 1955, (published in the Journal of Criminal Law and Criminology, Vol 46, Issue 1, Article 4)

and Part III

http://scholarlycommons.law.northwestern.edu/cgi/viewcontent.cgi?article=4367&context=jclc

With respect to article number 1 above, this is most probably why the Judicial System when adopting their Federal Rules of Criminal Procedure (FRCP) in 1946 removed the word ‘presentments’ on purpose…The committee that drafted the Federal Rules of Criminal Procedure provided no outlet for any document other than a prosecutor-signed indictment. Rule 7 of the FRCP which states,

“An offense which may be punished by death shall be prosecuted by indictment.  An offense which may be punished by imprisonment for a term exceeding one year or at hard labor shall be prosecuted by indictment…”  

No mention of ‘presentments’ can be found in Rule 7.  But they are mentioned in Note 4 of the Advisory Committee Notes on the Rules, as follows: 

“4.  Presentment is not included as an additional type of formal accusation, since presentments as a method of instituting prosecutions are obsolete, at least as concerns the Federal courts.”  

Did you get that ?   “Obsolete” – this is bypassing/ignoring/violating the Fifth Amendment.  I prefer the word “violating” in the previous sentence.   

In addition, it is interesting that you pointed out the time period that the CLGJ there in Alaska became vacated…around 1959 (or before)…and that it most probably happened at the same time in all the states.  I believe you are correct. 

The second article listed above details how in historical context the common law grand juries were constantly under attack beginning way back when the states were joining the union and writing their constitutions.

I am very interested to know when the Civil Judge Advocates Council in Alaska was formed and when they discovered this…and who are the people who formed this council…are they ‘government’ people or are they we the people people. Please advise…and thanks for the article, Anna. Your articles are always very enlightening and educational.
