Verbicide: The Death of Definitions
When Words Have Lost Their Meaning
By Ron Branson - National J.A.I.L. Commander-In-Chief
What is the definition of “definitions”?
That all depends on what the definition of “IS” is!
There is nothing so important in society as is the principle of definitions, i.e., that words have understood meanings, and that those understood meanings govern our society. Without adherence to sound words and distinct definitions, everything falters in uncertainty, and society crumbles into anarchy.
For example, take something as basic as baseball. Everybody knows what baseball is because it has rules, and those rules are commonly understood by everyone. What is an umpire? An umpire is the person who exercises his discretion in calling the various plays in the games. But how do we know that? We know that because the rules tell us so. But then, what are “rules.” If we question what “rules” are, then there is no way anyone can play baseball - or for that matter, football, tennis, foot racing, or monopoly? How does one score? Who wins? How do we know who wins? And even more basic, does anyone we care who wins? Can anyone show me a card game that has no rules?
So, likewise, no society can possibly function without rules. We call these rules “laws.” But what are “laws” if they are not adhered to or respected? God emphasizes the seriousness of words when He speaks about jots and tittles, (dotting of “I”s and the crossing of “t”s), “Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled.” Matt. 5:18.
Recently, (November 7, 2006) there was held an “election” in South Dakota on whether the voters of South Dakota should adopt judicial accountability, designated on the ballot as “Amendment E.” I say “election” with quotation marks around it because it was not really an election. Elections have rules. Those rules in the South Dakota Constitution specifically state, “Elections shall be free and equal, and no power, civil or military, shall at any time interfere to prevent the free exercise of the right of suffrage [the right to vote].” Art. VII, Sec. 1. However, those rules were not followed. Rather, they were deliberately and willfully subverted and violated by the very ones whose duty it was to see that everyone plays by the rules. They employed the uses of taxpayer dollars to condemn and castigate this ballot measure to twist it in the minds of South Dakotans because they fear the truth of the J.A.I.L. Initiative so much.
And to whom is it I address this statement? I speak of all one-hundred and five state legislators, and foremost of State Attorney General Larry Long, Chief Defense Counsel for the judges of South Dakota, who perverted the definition of the measure on the ballot by redefining the term “Judge” to mean every government official in the state, because government officials make “decisions,” to include “jurors” as “judges.” Hence, he provided for an argument that was prolifically propagated in the “election” that Amendment E was about letting felons out of prison to go after the jurist jurors who made “decisions” to place them in there. He completely convoluted the reality that these Special Grand Jurors, created by the Amendment, whom he originally redefined as “volunteers,” were charged with determining whether judges willfully violated the law and should forfeit their judge-created doctrine of judicial immunity in favor of judicial accountability. (See "Understanding The Term "Judge" and “Parable”.)
Further, every legislator in South Dakota willfully violated the rules [laws] that govern their conduct, and every one of them should be removed from public office for the sake of preserving the integrity of our country. (See South Dakota Codified Law 12-13-16 .)
Remember, when there are no rules [laws], there can exist no orderly society. Toleration for violations of laws will certainly permeate all of society. “For whosoever shall keep the whole law, and yet offend in one point, he is guilty of all.” James 2:10.
From the lips of no less that a United States Supreme Court Justice, we hear the words of Justice Brandeis in Olmstead v. United States, 277 U.S. 438, “In a government of laws, existence of the government will be imperiled if it fails to observe the law scrupulously. Our Government is the potent, the omnipresent teacher. For good or for ill, it teaches the whole people by its example. Crime is contagious. If the Government becomes a law-breaker, it breeds contempt for law; it invites every man to become a law unto himself; it invites anarchy. To declare that in the administration of the criminal law the end justifies the means — to declare that the Government may commit crimes in order to secure the conviction of a private criminal — would bring terrible retribution. Against that pernicious doctrine this Court should resolutely set its face.”
South Dakota's deliberate contamination of the election process by its entire government; judicial, executive, and legislative, will, if not curbed, contaminate the election processes of all elections everywhere nationwide.
In other words, unless another issue beats South Dakota to the punch, South Dakota shall, over JAIL4Judges, be the ruination of this entire nation. As the people of South Dakota discover that their “public servants” contaminated their election process, they will, as Justice Brandeis says, gradually disrespect all “laws” passed by their legislature, because their rules mean nothing. They are made to be ignored. The will say, “If my public servants, who swear by an oath to uphold the Constitution, can deliberately violate their oaths, then why should I keep any of their laws?”
A very reasonable question by South Dakotans. So, unless a force outside and beyond the power of the state of South Dakota moves in to remedy the situation (the powers of South Dakota are unable to remedy their own demise any more than a leopard can change his spots), rest assured that the contamination of the “election” process in South Dakota shall spread everywhere nationwide, wherein no one can trust anything anywhere.
So, what is the definition of “definitions”?
That all depends on what the definition of “IS” is!
Verbicide is the death of a nation!
Public Integrity Section
The Public Integrity Section oversees the federal effort to combat corruption through the prosecution of elected and appointed public officials at all levels of government. The Section has exclusive jurisdiction over allegations of criminal misconduct on the part of federal judges and also monitors the investigation and prosecution of election and conflict of interest crimes. Section attorneys prosecute selected cases against federal, state, and local officials, and are available as a source of advice and expertise to other prosecutors and investigators. Since 1978, the Section has supervised the administration of the Independent Counsel provisions of the Ethics in Government Act.

This notice is being published to literally thousands of media outlets throughout the country and the world. We intend to place the pressure upon the public officials of South Dakota until they correct their evil ways or leave office. J.A.I.L. should be ordered back on the ballot of South Dakota in a special election.
