Breaking News About the Constitution
My most burning question about the Constitution has finally been answered.
The answer, shared below, has huge implications for the movement to restore
the American republic, and I believe it starkly clarifies what the Founders
intended, when they spoke of the sovereignty of the people and the consent of
THIS IS MY QUESTION:
Part 1: Is the sovereignty of the people real? If it is real, and if the Founders truly
intended the Constitution to protect our God-given unalienable rights from the
natural tendency of governments to become too large and powerful, then it must
also be true that the people possess real power with which to discharge our
unique responsibility to protect the Constitution and its republic.
Part 2: But where, in the Constitution, is the mechanism by which we, the
people, can wield our power, as real sovereigns? Where is the tool we can use
to defend the Constitution, by physically reining in a corrupt, overreaching
government? I cannot believe the Founders would have given us such a central,
such a crucial task, without also providing the most effective means possible to
THIS IS THE ANSWER: YES.
IT DOES EXIST IN THE CONSTITUTION. ALTHOUGH IT HAS BEEN
SIDELINED BY PROGRESSIVES IN BOTH PARTIES, IT IS STILL OURS TO RE-ESTABLISH
The powerful mechanism that IS present in the Constitution is the Common Law
Grand Jury, which the Founders created as utterly and completely independent.
No judge—not even a Supreme Court justice—has authority over the Common
Law Grand Jury. Its most central duty is to discover, investigate, expose, and
end all political and judicial fraud and corruption. No wonder, then, that this body requires, and is given, absolute and complete freedom of action.
JURISDICTION OVER ALL
Regarding the jurisdictions of the Common Law Grand Jury, I quote (in italics) from the website National Liberty Alliance (NLA).
JURISDICTION OF THE COMMON LAW GRAND JURY*
Any government transgression against anyone in any respect
Any government breaking of articles of peace or security
Any dispute regarding anyone who has been unconstitutionally detained or
removed by the government without a legal sentence of his peers, from his
lands, castles, liberties, or lawful rights.
No decision of a [common law] grand jury is reviewable in any court of the
government It is the duty of the grand jury, if anyone’s unalienable rights have
been violated, or removed, without a legal sentence of their peers, from their
lands, home, liberties or lawful rights, we (the twenty-five) shall straightaway
restore them. And if a dispute shall arise concerning this matter it shall be
settled according to the judgment of the twenty-five Grand Jurors, the sureties of the peace.
*Much, if not all, of this material on the NLA website contains quotations from
U.S. Supreme Court decisions.
THE FOUNDERS SECURED THE PEOPLE’S PLACE ABOVE ALL
BRANCHES OF GOVERNMENT IN EFFECT, THE PEOPLE ARE THE ONES WHO CHECK AND BALANCE ALL THE OTHER BRANCHES
The Common Law Grand Jury is the tool, provided by the Founders, with which the people can bring the full power of their sovereign authority to bear directly on any government entity that exceeds its delegated powers. Most noteworthy is
that the authority of the Common Law Grand Jury is written into the Bill of
Rights–not the body of the Constitution–in order to reinforce the fact that it
cannot be taken from us, because it comes from God, not government. The
jury’s authority must be administered directly by the American people, and on
their own behalf, hence the need for its absolute independence.
THE PROBLEM: NO COMMON LAW JURIES FUNCTIONED IN AMERICA THROUGH THE ENTIRE 20 TH CENTURY!* NOR DO THEY FUNCTION, TODAY!
Progressive movement, in both parties, was the Common Law Grand Jury. By
careful steps, they blurred, then covered over its true nature. In 1941, laws were
passed that pushed the Common Law Grand Jury entirely into obscurity. Grand
juries, today, are NOT common law juries, but puppets of the court, called into
session by decision of the court, and operated under the auspices of a judge
and prosecutor. *With the exception of one that was briefly seated, during the
Prohibition Era. BUT THE COMMON LAW GRAND JURY’S CONSTITUTIONAL BASIS REMAINS IN FULL FORCE!!
The Progressives were unable to remove the jury’s authority from the Constitution—thanks to the requirements the Founders stipulated for such an
action . That authority remains intact, today, and is lawfully available to the
people. No governmental or judicial power can prevent the formation of a
Common Law Grand Jury. The Constitution is explicit on this subject, and
decades of judicial decisions acknowledge the supremacy of the Common Law
Grand Jury, including a recent one by the Supreme Court, in which Justice
Scalia wrote the majority opinion. See that opinion on the NLA website at this

BREAKING NEWS: COMMON LAW GRAND JURIES ARE NOW BEING
RE-ESTABLISHED –IN ALL 50 STATES
The National Liberty Alliance, which formed about 10 months ago, already has groups forming to re-establish the Common Law Grand Jury in all 50 states. Several have already made initial filings with county court clerks, demanding that facilities be provided where Common Law Grand Juries can operate.
Like other liberty movements, this is an utterly grassroots group—with a substantial difference: Once seated, the Common Law Grand Jury will bring the
teeth of the Constitution to bear directly on government malfeasance, thus
bringing tremendous traction to the whole effort to save this country. In the words of NLA founder John Darash, the Common Law Grand Jury “binds [the
government and the judiciary] with the chains of the Constitution.”
Now, aren’t those precisely the missing chains whose absence has hampered
the liberty movement, from day 1? Isn’t it exactly the goal of the liberty movement to replace those chains? I am not writing to you to suggest that you stop any other patriotic effort you are involved in. Every effort we make is highly valuable.
What I am suggesting, as forcefully as I can, is that every person who is committed to the Constitution, immediately incorporate the Common Law Grand Jury into your efforts, in whichever of the following ways are possible for you, personally:
- Join Grand Jury Groups in Your State. We need Juries in Every County in
America: For those most moved by the potential of this movement, of course,
DO get involved as state coordinators. Use this link to contact existing
coordinators in your county and/or state, and get started:
- Be A Common Law Grand Juror: If leading is not right for you , become a
member of the juror pool: By registering on the NLA site, you automatically
become a member of that pool. To register, click on “Register” on the home
page at NationalLibertyAlliance.org
- To find your state and county grand jury
group, see this link: State and County grand jury group,
- Attend Your Group’s Local Meetings When Possible: Although this
is mainly necessary for the group leaders, there will be meetings called for jury
elections, and also statewide meetings, during the re-establishment phase. If
you can attend some, or all of this kind of meeting, and even bring someone
new, along, all the better. NOTE: Our statewide convention and seminar takes
place in Phoenix, on Saturday, February 15, 2014. TIME: 9:00am to 6:00pm.
LOCATION: Brand New Church, 1827 W. Grovers, Phoenix, AZ. SE corner of

- Learn the True Meaning of Your Constitutional Freedoms.From my own personal experience, I can tell you that the revelations you will experience, while reading the material gathered on NLA’s website will quite often leave you breathless: It is mind boggling to understand, for the first time in your life, how completely the intentions of the Founders have been disfigured and transformed into their opposites. For me, it has been a “through-the-looking-glass” experience, but also a tremendously empowering one, for I now grasp much more clearly the constitutional ground on which we do still stand.
By studying the treasure trove of documents, videos, and class material that John Darash has assembled for us on the NLA website, you can bring yourself back into realistic touch with the Constitution. This is core information that will teach you about the real civic authority you have, as an American—authority that exceeds what you have imagined as belonging to an individual. Just to begin grasping this, in full, takes some time, because we have been brainwashed so well to see ourselves as passive captives of the state. We are NOT captives. We are the sovereigns of the state. In the most essential meaning of the words, the state has no power over us, unless we consent to it. And it’s past time that we relearn the proper order of things, so that we can act like sovereigns, once again.
