The Battle Lines are Drawn: J.A.I.L. versus The Foreign Power
A Power Foreign to Our Constitution
A Justice System Gone Mad!
(By Ron Branson - National J.A.I.L. CIC)
Years ago I owned a cat that just loved to catch flies. He would lock his eyes onto a fly and lunge out into thin air from a high footing such as the top of the wall furnace and slam into the wall or wham his head on the table corner. Absolutely nothing mattered to him except catching flies in flight.
Such is the attempt of the foreign power in South Dakota operating under color of government with respect to JAIL4Judges. These renegades have become so insanely dedicated to the cause of seeking the destruction of J.A.I.L. that they will do any insane act in their all-out effort to accomplish their goal. There is, of course, a great deal of difference between a dumb cat and an entire state regime.
On our www.sd-jail4judges.org website is manifest the following:
One might logically expect the espousal of hate speech to flow freely out of the mouth of hate-mongers and racist people, but from their government officials? Moved by hatred for the truth, we find the following words of libel from an official newspaper, to wit, The Aberdeen News, dated February 15, 2006:
"Supporters of the ballot measure argue it is needed to hold judges accountable for intentionally violating people's rights. But Sen. Lee Schoenbeck, R-Watertown, said the proposed constitutional amendment is backed by the same kind of people who killed a U.S. marshal in North Dakota years ago because they hate the American system of government. …
Schoenbeck said Branson and other supporters of the ballot measure apparently want to destroy the American system of government set up by Thomas Jefferson, John Adams and the nation's other founders. 'The reality is Mr. Branson and his people from Hollywood do not like America.' Schoenbeck said." ….
"Schoenbeck said in remarks directed toward Branson, 'We don't need your trash here,' "State Sen. Lee Schoenbeck, R-Watertown, called the proponents a 'posse comitatus nut group' during a speech in the Senate State Affairs Committee." Argus Leader, 2/21/06. ….
Senator Garry Moore says in the February 13, 2006 Yankton Daily Press, "…I am deeply troubled by the plot being brought forward by this totally unresponsive, out-of-state group. This group does not like government of any type. What they want is anarchy…" …. Senator Moore continues to express his hatred in his words, "tell them to go to hell…" Associated Press, February 15, 2006, "I want Amendment E killed," February 23, 2006, Press & Dakotan.
So we have now documented two powerful influential senators showing apparent evidence of having gone mad! So now let us move on to document the rest of the entire state "government" gone mad over J.A.I.L.
By clicking on the official S.D. website of www.sdjudicial.com/downloads/soj/y2007soj.ram you will see the official video presentation of the State of the Judiciary message presented by S.D. Chief Justice David Gilbertson. For the first eight minutes he takes up the subject of slamming J.A.I.L. stating that J.A.I.L. is based upon a lie that judges are shielded by judicial immunity. He praised former U.S. Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O'Connor for traveling the country propagating her statement that the object of J.A.I.L. is not justice, but "judicial intimidation."
He then turns to praising all 105 legislators before him for sticking together in opposing J.A.I.L, and honors them for passing their resolution condemning this ballot measure. He then praises the South Dakota Bar Director Thomas Barnett for his great work in defeating the S.D. J.A.I.L. ballot measure.
From my perspective, this "State of the Judiciary" message is like a drunken celebration party of everyone patting each other's back for the great work they have all accomplished working in union together to defeat the J.A.I.L. ballot measure. What Justice Gilbertson fails to acknowledge here is his unlawful appearance and speech at the original anti-J.A.I.L. fundrasing rally that included the South Dakota Bar Association, which action clearly violates four, if not five of South Dakota's judicial canons of ethics.
But who's concerned? Certainly not the South Dakota Legislature that openly violated, and despised the South Dakota Constitution, Art. VII, §1, "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 (to vote.)" Nor are they concerned about violating their own criminal statute 12-13-16 that states, "Any person knowingly printing, publishing, or delivering to any voter of this state a document containing any purported constitutional amendment, question, law, or measure to be submitted to the voters at any election, in which such constitutional amendment, question, law, or measure is misstated, erroneously printed, or by which false or misleading information is given to the voters, is guilty of a Class 2 misdemeanor."
No, no, no, these officials are the "government," and they are certainly not going to let the law get in their way in their madness to defeat the J.A.I.L. ballot measure. Absolutely nothing else is important. J.A.I.L. MUST be defeated at all costs! And this is true even if the state has to go to Hell!
You would think I have spoken my mind and am through. But no, I am not! I have yet to make my strongest point of the insanity and madness of the "government" of South Dakota. Here it is!
Would you believe that specifically because of J.A.I.L. appearing on the South Dakota ballot, the Legislature, in its madness, is now proposing HB1156 to dismantle the current initiative process to avoid a future threat of J.A.I.L. appearing on the ballot?
Bill would create law on collecting signatures

PIERRE - People hired to get signatures on petitions for
political campaigns in South Dakota may not get paid per name in the
Legislation sent Tuesday to the floor of the state House would make it illegal to pay by the signature. Petition carriers could be paid by the hour or get a set wage, and they could not be required to obtain a certain number of signatures or face getting fired. The bill, HB1156, also would require petition carriers to be South Dakota residents.
Since the Legislature of South Dakota is proposing the defeat of the initiative process, it behooves me to point out that HB1156 is unconstitutional in the following manner. As the U.S. Supreme Court has pointed out, collection of initiative signatures is a First Amendment right of Redress of Grievances available to all U.S. citizens, and no state can forbid the exercise of such right, regardless of the state in which they live.
Furthermore, the U.S. Constitution sets forth, "No state shall…make any…law impairing the obligation of contracts…" Art. I, §10, clause 1. For the State of South Dakota to pass a law stating that its citizenry cannot enter into a contract to collect signatures is a clear violation of the U.S. Constitution barring such legislation. But what does the Legislature, the Supreme Court, or the Chief Executive care? They have a greater priority: J.A.I.L. MUST be defeated!
