Jury Duty

Dennis Joyce

Justice is not administered from the Bench, only the judgment. You, as the Juror, are solely responsible for the judgment and justice.

Thomas Jefferson said, in a letter to Thomas Paine in 1789: "I consider trial by jury as the only anchor yet devised by man, by which a government can be held to the principles of its constitution."

America's second President, John Adams, said in 1771: "It is not only [the juror's] right, but his find the verdict according to his own best understanding, judgment, and conscience, though in direct opposition to the direction of the court."

John Jay, the first Chief Justice of the U.S. Supreme Court, said: "The jury has a right to judge both the law as well as the fact in controversy." Georgia v. Brailsford, 1794.

Judges have become so corrupt they refuse to tell you of your rights and powers as a Juror. It’s a lead pipe cinch you weren’t told this in the government schools since 1865. Judges are egotist and usurp rights at the drop of a hat to enhance their position.

However, it is you, the Juror, that are, in fact, the Judge. You represent the people. The Judge, and everyone else, represents the state, including the Defense Attorney because they are Officers of the Court. You, the Juror, are the wild card in the deck, a deck that is stacked against you and any defendant before the bar.

The Judge may harrumph and bang his gavel in an attempt to intimidate you and give you all sorts of instructions. For once, in your adult life, act like a teenager and let it whistle in one ear and out the other. He is attempting to demand a directed verdict, and that is illegal.

It is your responsibility and duty to judge the law and the fact in every case that comes before you. If the law is not just, or unconstitutional in your opinion, you are under no obligation to uphold it.

Think about it! At that moment, in your life, you hold the power of VETO (Nullification) over any law passed by any legislative body in the land. Nullification (VETO) sends a powerful message back to the legislative body. That message is, “We don’t want this law on the books!”

We continuously hear or “citizens” prattle on about our wonderful democracy. Spare me! We live in a constitutional republic, or at least we did before the “citizens” shirked their duty by avoiding Jury duty. They have committed treason by putting the government on auto-pilot. Governmental auto-pilot only has one setting and that is usurpation with the ultimate destination being tyranny, subjugation and slavery.

Never let the statement, “There ought to be a law.” ever pass your lips. It will reach a legislative body faster than an earnest prayer can reach God’s ear. Now, go forth and do your duty as a citizen and let us start to regain control of this mess and put the right people in prison.
