"Righteousness Exalteth A Nation" Prov. 14:34
(By Ron Branson, J.A.I.L Author/Founder)
It is no secret that various channels are being put into effect by J.A.I.L. to obtain a personal audience with Governor Schwarzenegger in an attempt to assist him in his endeavor to help restore California. I have pointed out that his goal is impossible to achieve without our help, and that he needs us much more that we need him. As a result of our publication of this fact, we received the following from Boston, Mass., "I'm not sure I understand how J.A.I.L. is going to help the governor, can you please clarify? Have a great day. God Bless you, Denise"
This is a reasonable inquiry that I wish to address for our readers. Does anyone care to debate the issue that California is in a heap of trouble due to its corruption, fraud, and oppression in every way thinkable? We have the highest paid bureaucrats in the nation, the highest retirement benefits to the same, the largest boondoggle of a public school system, the highest taxes and unemployment, the worst worker's compensation program, the highest accumulation of lawyers on earth, the largest prison industry, and so on and so forth.
Of all the litigation coming before the U.S. Supreme Court, most arise out of the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals, which covers eleven states. Of all these eleven states, most litigation originates from California. (And as a side bar, the vast majority of these cases arise out of the Second Appellate District, i.e., Los Angeles.) I have had the sad experience of receiving my legal "education" right here in the heart of the beast where judicial influence, bribery and scams abound.
Governor Schwarzenegger, while shocked at what he has already discovered, has not seen the half of what he is faced with. He has said that if he has to, he will go directly to the people with citizen's initiatives, and that is just exactly what he will have to do, but his current Proposition 57 & 58 initiative now on the ballot to borrow an additional $15 Billion, plus interest to be saddled on our children and grand-children for years to come, is not the answer. It will only enhance California's problems in the long run.
I have quoted a basic truth that is true of every era, every nation, all societies, and in all circumstances. This truth cannot be averted, and that is that "Righteousness exalteth a nation." Webster's dictionary defines exalt as, to raise high, to elevate in character, praise, estimation, glory, and to induce exaltation.
By antithesis, corruption, fraud and oppression always destroy a nation. This same principle applies to states as well as to a nation. Without righteousness, no state can achieve exaltation. Thus, it is certain that Schwarzenegger can never "raise high," or "elevate" California without a real and workable direct system of accountability to the People that has teeth.
I am asked how J.A.I.L. will help the governor. If that question is asked from the perspective of how he will fare with the existent government and legislature, it won't help him because they will be vehemently opposed to what he absolutely must do. He must return power directly back into the hands of the People if he expects to elevate California.
Now, what will J.A.I.L. do for California, or for this nation, for that matter? I have been very careful on this point because I have not wished to awaken a self-confident arrogant sleeping giant who fears no harm. As far as the powerful are concerned, I would rather they perceive us as just a chit-chat group of disgruntled slaves that expresses only grandeurs of hope, while posing no actual or real threat to their future security. On the other hand, I am offering hope to the hopeless. So I walk this thin line of offering people hope, while "posing no threat" to the status quo.
The plan is to come upon our enemies as sudden as an instant heart attack, leaving them to wonder what happened. (Ever notice how I say very little on the subject of the New World Order and one other unmentionable subject?) Am I sly? Do I know more than I put on? Do I have effective long-range plans? I will leave you to formulate your own opinions.
Basically, J.A.I.L., apart from advanced technology, will wind back the clock to when the Constitution governed our nation, judges obeyed their oaths to uphold and defend the Constitution against all enemies, and when laws were few and respected and had a genuine purpose rather than generating revenue and imposing oppression upon the people. People were then respected by those whom we elected.
We have ventured so far off base from the Constitution for so many years that most people have no idea of what a constitutionally limited government is, and would fear the radical change. For instance, can you imagine receiving a jury trial in every case in which the government came after you, and had to justify its aggression before an unfettered jury? The Constitution says, "...the accused shall enjoy the right to a speedy and public trial, by an impartial jury..." When's the last time you received a jury trial in a traffic court? family court? bankruptcy court? so-called "administrative courts," etc. They are non-existent. The courts have arbitrarily determined you are not entitled to a jury trial.
Our Founding Fathers were aggrieved with these very things when they unanimously signed the Declaration of Independence on July 4, 1776. Let us revisit a few of their grievances. "He has obstructed the administration of justice .... He has erected a multitude of new offices, and sent hither swarms of officers to harass our people, and eat out their substance. ... He has kept among us, in times of peace, standing armies [Homeland Security] .... He has combined with others to subject us to a jurisdiction foreign to our Constitution [administrative laws] .... For protecting them [troops], by a mock trial, from punishment.... For imposing taxes on us without our consent .... For depriving us in many cases, of the benefits of trial by jury.... abolishing our most valuable laws, and altering fundamentally the forms of our governments .... and waging war against us.
Once a young man asked me something like this. How would we keep our government going if we operated like you are suggesting? I responded, that's a good point. How would we survive if we did not have all this government breathing down our back everywhere, telling us what we can and can not do, licenses and taxing us every step of the way, fining us if we do not obey, and punishing us if we detest them?
He responded, I didn't think of it in that light.
Imagine living in an atmosphere where you could think and act for yourself, being responsible for your own actions; where you could actually defend yourself and your property per Article I of the California Constitution, "All people are by nature free and independent and have inalienable rights. Among these are enjoying and defending life and liberty, acquiring, possessing and protecting property, and pursuing and obtaining safety, happiness, and privacy."
This sounds too frightening, doesn't it? "Gee, you mean I have to make decisions for myself and be responsible for my own actions? I don't think I can handle this. It does not fit my way of thinking. I want the government to think for me, to protect me, and to be responsible for my actions. I just would not know what to do with this kind of Liberty. Yes, and I wouldn't get my Social Security check, Food Stamps, etc."
Honestly, I think if I were to inform most people on the reality of the extent J.A.I.L. would benefit California and Gov. Scharzenegger, they would be beside themselves, and so I just as soon let them experience it, and not hear the fullness thereof.
Our greatest problem in California is ignorance, "My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee." Hosea 4: 6.
I intend to move this nation through the accountability that J.A.I.L. will bring towards integrity, truth, and godly principles, apart from party politics, and without pressuring anyone in the way of religion.
Truly J.A.I.L will bring about the fulfillment of Prov. 28: 28, and 29: 2, "When the wicked rise, men hide themselves: but when they perish, the righteous increase." "When the righteous are in authority, the people rejoice: but when the wicked beareth rule, the people mourn." If we care for California / America, and want to increase godly men in it, then it's time to turn toward the goodness J.A.I.L. offers. "Righteousness exalteth a nation." -Ron Branson
