This is a proposal?
Go for it!!! It is definitely needed.
As reported late last night via DecaLogosIntl.org, Stephen Pidgeon, attorney for Broe v. Reed, has officially announced that he has issued a declaration (audio at link) for a national grand jury:
Here is the link
The requirements are even stricter than that required of the President!
That said, I could easily qualify for about 99% of them. (I do have a tendency to let a well vocalized “swear word” pass my lips when the occasion calls for it-that might disqualify me.)
Where do you sign up??!! ; )
Requirements to Become a Grand Juror
National Grand Juror candidates must meet all of the following qualifications:
* Be a natural born citizen of the United States (born in one of the fifty states of the United States to parents both of whom were U.S Citizens and resident in the United States at that time).
* Be at least 18 years old.
* Be a resident of the state that the Juror represents for at least one year immediately prior to selection.
* Exhibit intelligence, sound judgment, and good character.
* Cannot have been convicted of malfeasance in office, any felony or other high crime.
* Cannot be serving as a public official.
Grand Jury Selection Process
There shall be 50 members of the Grand Jury with 50 alternates. Candidates are to be selected from a pool of nominees who shall submit their nomination to the nominating committee. Nominees will be appointed by the affirmative vote of the nominating committee, who shall base their nomination on the following criteria expressed in priority:
* First - an affidavit of qualification where the nominee asserts that the nominee:
* is a natural born citizen of the United States, setting forth the place of birth, the date of birth, the place of birth of the nominees father, the place of birth of the nominees mother, and the residency of the parents at the time of birth;
* is at least 18 years of age;
* is and has been a resident of the state the nominee seeks to represent for at least one year prior to the application;
* is intelligent (demonstrating the ability to read and to write), uses sound judgment (exhibits ability to reason) and is a person of good character (does not engage in misconduct, interpersonal attacks, foul language or disruptive behavior);
* is not serving as a public official.
* Second the ability to serve as a Juror, where the nominee asserts that the nominee
* Can and will attend each meeting of the National Grand Jury without absence
* Can and will render decisions according to the rule of law without prejudice or bias
* Can and will prepare decisions and recommendations in writing
* Can and will use electronic technology such as email, blog posting, text messaging, teleconferencing and so on.
* Third order in which the application is received
Potential grand jurors will be given information about National Grand Jury duties and the time commitment required.
The committee shall interview each candidate, usually twice, to reduce the number to 100, two from each of the several states. The final selection is made by the affirmative vote of the majority of the nominating committee.
This is either a very cool idea, or someone is feeling extremely self-important. Sounds like quasi-government/within-yet-outside-government/cum posse commitatus/extralegal quixotic windmill tilting, and will be perceived as such (if it ever reaches any appreciable levels of public perception at all).
But then, I could be wrong. Hope so.
Mr. Pidgeon states that an application will be posted at the DecaLogosIntl.org web site for those who would be interested in applying. At first, all applicants will have the opportunity to sign up confidentially, though actual names will have to be revealed should a report be issued by the jury (assuming a finding is produced).
...of the fifty several states and of the United States of America
Keep us posted!
True. That could be the downside. In the wrong hands it could easily turn into a “people’s tribunal” kinda thing. That would be my only reservation about it.
I think it's about time for one.
Well, you know what I mean- in the really evil nasty Stalin kinda way. ; )
Of course, we’ll be contending with that here soon enough, I fear, look what they are trying to get rolling with the “Truth Commission”.
That just chills me.
“Exhibit intelligence, sound judgment, and good character.”
That excludes all lawyers.
Bless you...I consider myself somewhat well versed but that escaped me.
“First - an affidavit of qualification where the nominee asserts that the nominee:
* is a natural born citizen....”
The problem with our current system of presidential elections is that no one is required to make sure the person is eligible - they’re allowed to sign an affidavit that they’re qualified. Now, here, they’re going to use the same non-substatntiated method to “vet” potential grand jury members.
I think requiring them to be NBC is in part making a point. But I think it would have made a greater point if they were going to use a system which verified the jurors’ NBC status, just as we need to institute this system for presidential candidates.
The video at the link only had music. Perhaps I did not find the right video.
