Victory America
 
I feel the need to share with all, that as a former United States Combat Marine I, as well as many othersfought for those ever so precious words of Rights and Freedom for all Americans. So that "We The People" for all time, could enjoy that which our founding fathers envisioned for its peopleto Stand up and fight the corruption which now seeks to destroy from within. Our greatest battle is not outside our Country but within and on the very soil  which so many have given of their life to defend. It is up to us, the Peopleto carry the ball....It is time to Stand up and defeat the enemy with Truth and Justice for all.....    JAIL4JudgesPolk County, Florida.

From the July 2004 Idaho Observer:
“The people's ignorance”

SPOKANE, Wash. -- At a press conference before an event sponsored by the Constitution Party of Washington June 26, Judge Roy Moore stated in three words exactly why Americans are experiencing judicial anarchy.

Former Alabama Supreme Court Justice Moore, who has gained a lot of notoriety in recent years for his refusal to remove the Ten Commandments from his courthouse, was at Shadle Park High School with Constitution Party presidential candidate Mike Peroutka. Judge Moore had been explaining how judges' common practice of changing the meaning of words in their courtrooms is legislating from the bench. He described how this flagrant violation of the separation of powers clause in the Constitution has been institutionalized in the courts of the nation and explains how judges are able to justify unjust rulings.

Idaho Observer editor Don Harkins asked, “What is the power behind all this?”

“The people's ignorance,” said Judge Moore.

There is nothing more frightful than ignorance in action. Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
Half the world is composed of idiots, the other half of people clever enough to take indecent advantage of them. --Walter Kerr
Quotation World - http://www.s-2000.com/quoteworld/ignorance.html

Why are we concerned about the ignorance of the People?  

 It is because that is what the evil forces (the Foreign Power) in control feed upon and what gives it its power, a counterfeit power. As long as the People allow, through ignorance, the Foreign Power to hold them in its grip by usurpation, it will not only continue to do so, but it will become even more oppressive as long as it remains in power.

Edmund Burke said "The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing." Why do good men do nothing? One writer expressed the reason thusly:

I believe that many people place too much responsibility for the human predicament upon the evil designs of cunning and crafty men and women. I suggest that they are abetted in their designs by good people who do not know how to express the goodness they feel within themselves. So they do nothing.
Of Ignorance and Action by Richard D. Poll, Signature Books; Salt Lake City, Utah
http://www.signaturebookslibrary.org/history/chapter5.htm#action

The People, by and large, don't know how to counteract the evil forces. We saw "ignorance in action" on Election Day 2006 in South Dakota. The voters were not informed by a Voters' Guide of the issues on which they were to cast their vote, and so ignorance of the voters was allowed to control their vote. The South Dakota Foreign Power (SDFP) wasted no time in taking full advantage of that ignorance, by enhancing it with endless propaganda consisting of one lie after another about the J.A.I.L. Amendment (called "Amendment E" on the SD ballot). The SDFP knew that it must feed that ignorance and keep it alive for its own survival. The SDFP knew that the moment the ignorance turned into knowledge of the voter, it would spell its demise; and so it couldn't let that happen!

About the frightful condition of "ignorance in action" expressed by von Goethe, supra, Mr. Poll went on to state:

I suspect that the human predicament is as much a product of ignorance about the nature and goals of life, or stupidity in pursuing them, as it is of cunning, conspiratorial craftiness. Of Ignorance and Action, supra.

Yes, we saw ignorance in action by design in South Dakota. The J.A.I.L. Amendment made it to the South Dakota ballot in 2006 by an overwhelming number of signatures on the petition. J.A.I.L. carried a 3-to-1 favorable rating throughout the campaign. We believed that would be enough for victory for J.A.I.L. on the mistaken presumption that the voters knew what J.A.I.L. was truly about. However, we didn't anticipate the extent of propaganda, crime and corruption to which the opposition would go to deceive the voters into "defeating" J.A.I.L. But we found out and we maintain the evidence to prove it. See the South Dakota website, www.sd-jail4judges.org As Mr. Poll says, the "predicament is as much the product of ignorance about the nature and goals of life" which the J.A.I.L. Amendment would have provided the People of South Dakota, "as it is of [the] cunning, conspiratorial craftiness" of the SDFP.

The SDFP has survived this round and it is carrying on a self-congratulatory post-election "success" story. But it knows its "success" will be short lived. Because of that election disaster in South Dakota, the People's ignorance is already turning into knowledge all across this nation. The "loss" in South Dakota will turn out to have been a blessing in disguise, for it is serving as a valuable lesson to the American People who will have gained sufficient knowledge to make an informed vote in the future. They will be sure to read the J.A.I.L. Amendment before voting on it next time. They will never, never trust the "explanation" or "summary" of any official regarding J.A.I.L. whether it be attorney general, secretary of state, governor, or otherwise. And, certainly, they will not believe anything put out by the Bar Association regarding J.A.I.L., for they will realize that the Bar is actually an integral division of the state Supreme Court, and its members serve as the judicial sentry.

James Madison said "Knowledge will forever govern ignorance..."  and since Ignorance of the People is the life-blood of the evil forces in power, the People must turn their ignorance into knowledge. That admonishment applies to any subject matter, however for purposes of this writing, it applies to J.A.I.L. The People must learn for themselves the particulars of the J.A.I.L. Amendment so they aren't fooled into believing the lies of the Foreign Power any more, in whatever form it takes. Once burned, shame on them; twice burned, shame on us.

How is that knowledge of J.A.I.L. gained?

1.  The first place to start is read the J.A.I.L. Amendment. The Amendment has been revised this year to clarify definitions and  to counter misinterpretations, so be sure you are reading the 2007 revision. If you don't yet have the 2007 revision, go to our main website at www.jail4judges.org and click on the California J.A.I.L. Initiative at the top of the Home Page as a guide. All state initiatives/legislation are patterned after the California Initiative. If there's anything in the J.A.I.L. Amendment you don't understand, please ASK US to explain it.

2. The second step, after you are well informed about the Amendment, go to our South Dakota website at www.sd-jail4judges.org to learn explicit details, complete with documentation, about the fraud committed by the SDFP. With all the links and references on that site, you'll have plenty to read and learn. See especially the link in the left-hand column to "Confronting Head-On the No-on-E Club" for specific lies and propaganda spewed out by the opposition, with our responses thereto. That alone will be quite an education. Mr. Barnett, executive-director of the SD Bar Association who led the campaign against J.A.I.L. has already begun traveling to other states, teaching the Bar Association members of those states "how to do it."  See The Foreign Power Planting Seeds of Deception  http://www.jail4judges.org/JNJ_Library/2007/2007-01-19B.html 

Following those two steps above will certainly turn your ignorance about J.A.I.L. into knowledge of the measure. But simple knowledge is not enough to completely   
overcome ignorance. It must be developed into wisdom which is attained by gaining sufficient amounts of the proper and relevant knowledge to become enlightened about the subject at hand, to the point where you could teach others about it. This is important to understand. There are more college-educated derelicts roaming the streets of society than we care to realize. Make sure the subject matter in which you're knowledgeable is relevant to a meaningful purpose in life. And to be meaningful, it must be basic and universal in application, not esoteric. No matter how much one knows about nuclear physics, does that knowledge alone determine the survival of our country? of our life, liberty, and property or do we need a more basic knowledge leading to the wisdom required to understand the source and meaning of those inherent qualities?  
 
To realize how important the passage of J.A.I.L. is, after you have studied the measure, the best source of the basic knowledge described above is the Declaration of Independence, which is the foundation —the fountainhead— of J.A.I.L. That Great Charter of this Nation is even more meaningful today than when it was written, because indeed we are now, more than ever, seeing and experiencing "ignorance in action" by the People, a frightful human predicament which has brought about a Foreign Power active in South Dakota and probably in every state of the Union. 
 
The Declaration is built upon the bedrock of the Laws of Nature which Laws are not 
legislated nor penned by man —they pre-exist mankind, let alone government. The Declaration teaches us the embryonic beginnings of this country, the point from which we all must start in learning about the inherent qualities that we hold dear, existing even before mankind, by Nature. Just contemplate that thought, putting out of your mind —at least for a moment— all the terrible conditions under which we live. If you dwell at this point on what's happening in society today, it will rob you of the important and indeed precious things to be learned in the first place, before going further in your development of knowledge. The People need this rudimentary foundation before building upon it. How did we get to the terrible stage of life we are in today? The People must learn the answer to that question by gaining knowledge gradually and meticulously through each principle taught by the Declaration in order to know how to counteract the evil forces and be able to do something, rather than nothing, to annihilate the "triumph of evil" —and in doing something, that it not be "ignorance in action."
 
Why is this important, you ask?  
 
(a) The Foreign Power in South Dakota would have been annihilated by the People had J.A.I.L. passed in the 2006 election, and
(b) J.A.I.L. would have passed the election had there not been "ignorance in action."  And, further,
(c) "Ignorance in action" would not have existed had the People gained the knowledge necessary to cast an intelligent vote for the J.A.I.L. Amendment.

We're not talking about learning a hobby or skill, or a game— we're talking about the People abolishing the forces of evil running this country in order to save it from complete destruction— and the People along with it. And the door of opportunity is about to shut forever!

The first principle taught by the Declaration is that, under the Laws of Nature pre-existing mankind, "all men" (i.e., the People) are created by their Creator and endowed with certain inherent qualities that pre-existed even his own existence. Those inherent qualities, called "rights" in the Declaration, include, but are not limited to, life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness, the latter of which was denominated "property" by John Locke, the mentor of Thomas Jefferson in authoring the Declaration. Certainly, owning property is a "pursuit of happiness."  (Remember, don't think about what we're forced to live under today while studying these initial principles. Just know that the Declaration states that these are self-evident truths.)
 
That initial truth establishes the fact that mankind (the People) are sovereign beings under the Laws of Nature, possessing as part of their being inherent rights that existed prior to mankind and prior to government. Never lose sight of that fact. The People cannot "dispossess" themselves of those rights nor of their sovereignty —they are part of their being. The best that can be said is that mankind can relinquish, by his choice, the exercise of those rights and his sovereign status, as long as it is done knowingly (knowing what he is giving up), intelligently (understanding the consequences of giving them up), and voluntarily (without threat, coercion, or duress). The terms of such relinquishment (length of time, for what purpose, etc.) is up to each individual and cannot be done by society as a whole. Society isn't created all at once, but by each human being individually —another point to keep in mind. These are self-evident truths.
 
Once mankind appeared "on the scene" and grew into a community or society, John Locke points out that the People needed a government —which, according to Frederic Bastiat, is a "collective force," i.e., "only the organized combination of the individual forces" (http://www.econlib.org/library/Bastiat/basEss2a.html)— to protect their individual rights which they could not do individually. The Declaration teaches us that governments are instituted among men to secure their inherent (unalienable) rights. Since only mankind, as a society, existed before government, it stands to reason that government was "instituted" by mankind, "among men" to secure their individual rights. Whatever the government function entailed, it could be for only one purpose: to protect the People's individual rights. Government was to do for the People what they could not do for themselves individually.
 
The Declaration then teaches us another self-evident truth, that government derives its just powers from the consent of the "governed," being the People. We later learn that the means by which the People give this consent to government is the U.S. Constitution, the written By-Laws for government to follow —the Supreme Law of the Land. See The Consent of the Governed is the U.S. Constitution http://www.jail4judges.org/JNJ_Library/2007/2007-01-30B.html in which this subject is fully discussed. As stated by Dr. Ronald J. Pestritto:
 
America's government institutions derive their "just powers" from the Constitution, and the Constitution derives its authority from the consent of the people who have ordained and established it. Because consent is the only legitimate source of political power, government must rule according to the rule of law.
http://www.claremont.org/publications/precepts/id.123/precept_detail.asp                                                     
 
The Declaration next teaches us that whenever government becomes destructive of the purpose for which it was instituted by the People, i.e., it fails to protect the People's individual inherent rights, it is the right of the People to alter or abolish that form of "government" and institute a new government that will serve their safety and happiness. The Declaration advises us, however, that such change should not be hasty or done for "light and transient" reasons, and that the People are likely to avoid any such change as long as the "evils are sufferable." This is also taught as self-evident truth.
 
At this point, the question arises, "For how long are the evils sufferable?"  
 
The Declaration does not indicate a length of time; however it does acknowledge that there does come a point in time when they are no longer sufferable and instructs us thusly:
 
But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such government, and to provide new guards for their future security.
 
We have given this admonishment over and over in hopes that the People would wake up to the fact that it is self-evident truth that it's time -past time- to make some changes in our form of government. Contemplate how long would that "train of abuses and usurpations" have to be before change is necessary? Is 220 years long enough? or even 90+ years (since that notable year of 1913)? Ask yourselves, have we yet reached the point when the evils are NO LONGER SUFFERABLE in this country? Think about it-- how much thought does it take?
 
The People of South Dakota believed it was time to alter or reform their form of government, and they signed petitions to place J.A.I.L. on their 2006 ballot for that very purpose, a right acknowledged by the South Dakota Constitution, Article VI 26. We now know the fiasco that took place in South Dakota over the proposed J.A.I.L. Amendment on the 2006 ballot. Not only did the People of South Dakota believe that the evils were no longer sufferable in their state, and that the time was ripe to amend their "government," and accordingly followed the steps required to place the measure on the SD ballot, but they now know, as do the People nationally, that the evils in South Dakota are SO BAD and insufferable that the People's right to cast an informed vote on Amendment E (the J.A.I.L. Amendment) was thwarted by the evil power running South Dakota, by keeping the voters ignorant of the truth of Amendment E, causing the frightful human predicament of "ignorance in action" described herein.
 
That evil force in South Dakota rammed through at least two SD Constitutional provisions, plus several SD state criminal statutes, and conducted a horrendous propaganda campaign to the voters against the truth of Amendment E. One of the many repeated injuries and usurpations suffered by the People, causing them to declare their independence from the tyranny of England, is:
 
He (the King) has combined with others to subject us to a jurisdiction foreign to our constitution, and unacknowledged by our laws; giving his assent to their acts of pretended legislation.
 
As a result of the South Dakota 2006 election fiasco, the South Dakotans have been subjected to a jurisdiction foreign to their Constitution and unacknowledged by their laws, the court giving its assent to their nefarious acts. For instance, click on "Fraud in South Dakota" at the top of the Home Page of our site, href="../../State_Chapters/dc/DC_initiative.doc">www.jail4judges.org, then click on "SD Court Order Permitting Election Fraud..." and then go to 53 of the Order:
[53.]    The attorney general could have said with a straight face that the real purpose and effect of the proposed JAIL amendment is to destroy justice in South Dakota by harassment of public decisions makers with lawsuits...
That was the decision of Presiding Judge, Max A. Gors of the Circuit Court of South Dakota
 
Accordingly, it is "clear and simple" that this evil power is a foreign power in South Dakota --a power foreign to the Constitution of South Dakota. It is also "clear and simple" that the People must convert their ignorance into knowledge sufficient to annihilate the foreign power, operating under color of "government" wherever it exists in this country. The survival of our Constitutional Republic is at stake! 
 
J.A.I.L. will annihilate the Foreign Power.
