    The Montana Republic: Trial By Jury & Jury Nullification

    in Politics

    US Constitution,  Article III Section 2 Clause 3:
    "The Trial of all Crimes, except in Cases of Impeachment, shall be by Jury; and such Trial shall be held in the State where the said Crimes shall have been committed;..."
    In today's courts, judges think they are the final word on juries. They are not.
    Join me (and possible a guest or two) in discussing how to get the word out and where to turn for information.  Jury Nullification has been around since before the Constitution.   http://www.constitution.org/jury/pj/fija_history.htm
     
    Don't let those black robed Gestapo agents destroy your life. Get used to hearing that, because that's what they are.

    It's said there are 3 boxes you can count on to control government.....
    1: the soap box
    2: the ballot box 
    3: the ammo box.  
     
    Well there is a 4th box  and our founders knew we needed it before we exercised the 3rd. Are you ready for a fight?!


    Time we take back this county.
    Join me and be part of the discussion.

    JUDICIAL TYRANNY AND JURY NULLIFICATION

    in Politics

    jury Nullification or by another name “The Fully Informed Jury" is one of the greatest controls on tyranny available to us.


    Jury nullification has a long history in the United States. Our forefathers referenced it as a remedy to judicial tyranny and bad law. It is time we excercised that right again.


    Joining us is Dr. Rodger Roots.


    Dr. Roots is a nationally recognized criminologist, legal scholar and civil liberties activist.  He is active in libertarian politics, and in the promotion of a freer, fairer and more just world.  He is the author of more than two dozen noteworthy scholarly articles, and some of his research has been relied on by federal courts.   He is an advocate for the rights of the disenfranchised, the downtrodden and the politically estranged.


    His work and advocacy on three areas: the fully informed jury movement, the reestablishment of Fourth Amendment protections and the establishment of a fair and equal court system for all participants.


    Dr.Roots has published an important article on the lopsided procedural rules of the federal court system, “Unfair Rules of Procedure: Why Does the Government Get More Time?,” which appeared in The American Journal of Trial Advocacy in 2010.


    He is a Founding Member of the Wall of Tolerance, co-founded by Rosa Parks, whose courageous stand against authoritarian government in 1955 showed millions of others how to resist government by simply saying no.


    There is much more but there is limited space for tis description!


    Suffice to say he is very qualified to discuss the subject of Jury Nullification and Judicial Tyranny. We will talk about many thing so join us.

    WHERE ARE THE JUDGES ON JURY TAMPERING?

    in News

    Judge Scott Steffen bails on DA jury tampering


    According to jurors in the A.J. bail bonds case, Dist. Atty. Dave Harris and DA investigator Steve Jacobson interviewed them outside the courtroom before they went into deliberations.


    Judge Scott Steffen stated that he was obligated to do something about the corruption of his jury but was seeking “legal advice” on what should be done.


    On Friday, February 27, a hearing was scheduled to hear the complaint against the Dist. Atty. and what course of action had been decided by Steffen.


    Dist. Atty. Dave Harris was represented by County Counsel, but the judge had already decided that he was removing himself from the case.


    Steffen sent the case to Judge Silviera, who then sent the case to Judge McFadden.


    Back room decisions have been made. Perhaps the legal advice that was being sought by Judge Steffen was to remove  himself  from the case. Who is advising the other judges on what to do about the misconduct in the District Attorney’s Office.


    All this was done without any paperwork and leaves the judicial system with an obligation to inform attorney Frank Carson about what is going to be done about his revelation of the jury tampering .


    At the very least,  Judge Steffen should reveal what legal advice he has received other than he might be a witness.


    Judge Steffens jury had not been released to go into deliberations when jury members reported to the court bailiff the actions of the District Attorney’s Office and in particular those of investigator Steve Jacobson.


    Nine days after the jury’s decision to completely exonerate AJ Pontillo the courtroom bailiff  was fired by Sheriff Adam Christianson, she had served the County for 16 years.


    Christianson was a witness at the trial, On the way out he paused and saluted the bailiff that he fired after the trial.

    A Just Cause Coast 2 Coast - Deception Of The Grand Jury

    in US Government

    Sam Thurman, Cliff Stewart and Lisa Stewart of the Colorado exoneration firm A Just Cause, discuss what happens when the wheels of justice trample unbridled over the rights of innocent Americans.  


    Although the American system of justice is the most-respected worldwide, it is still a system designed, and operated, by humans, which means it's not perfect. Sam, Cliff, and Lisa will highlight ongoing struggles against "the system" to free wrongfully imprisoned people, and what happens when justice miscarries against an actually innocent person.
