Title: Film: Local Self-Government: Brentwood, NH April 1 Monday
Post by: Luck on October 08, 2012, 05:39:43 pm
(Most recent post is at end of thread.)


(I plan to post Community Rights article links here starting next week I guess. It's now Jan. 2017. CELDF is about changing local ordinances or laws to protect communities from big corporations etc, so DIY law is applicable. The thread for Gen X,Y,Z is an activist thread similar to this one. Let's get educated to end major corruption by all means.)
A conscientious Florida lawyer, Fred Graves, has a law course at http://jurisdictionary.com . He says in the course that one of several things that can be done to end abuse of power is to use injunctions.

Injunctions
"(I)njunctions are able to command high officials to answer your questions and concerns about what they're doing with your children, your tax dollars, and the future of your country. There are no limitations on injunctions. You can file a complaint seeking an injunction to require a local school board to tell you why children are being taught non-traditional values. You can file for an injunction to stop chemical dumping, or to fill in dangerous holes left by abandoned excavations. You can even bring an action to enjoin leaders to explain why government doesn't teach its public even the simplest points of how to win in court. ... If you're one of the good guys, you're supposed to use your power to make the world better for all of us. Force government and giant businesses to answer you on the public record (or [they] go to jail). ... Demand justice! Learn your fundamental right to be heard by the court. Move the court. Enforce the official rules in your jurisdiction. Make everyone obey -- the American way."

Mr. Graves explains that everyone has the duty not to harm others and that causes of action for injunctions and law suits are any acts or negligence that can be shown to have caused undue harm. That includes harm done by public servants by direct action or by negligence.

Suggested Causes of Action
I think some of the greatest abuses that we should prosecute are the following:
- Racketeering in and out of government, with major media as accomplices;
- Lawmaking that violates human rights, including unjust war;
- IRS fraud, such as claims that all citizens and residents are liable for income and employment taxes, and thus prosecuting fraudulently;
- Prisoner abuse; prosecution of victimless crimes; promoting criminal recidivism;
- ABA licensing of incompetent lawyers (who fail to properly represent clients' interests);
- NEA, ATA, School Boards abuse and miseducation of students;
- CFS unnecessary forced separation of parents and their children;
- FDA, AMA, ADA, APA et al approval of unsafe health products and biased health science;
- NSF, AAAS et al support for biased science.

I phoned Mr. Graves today to see if he might help our efforts to end major corruption in NH etc.

He asked if we have a plan. I didn't mention that the FSP plan is to get 20,000 people to move to NH, but I mentioned that the NHLA has a plan to elect Free Staters to public office, esp. the state house. I didn't have time to mention that they also draft legislative proposals for our Reps to submit for legislation.

It's been a few months since I read the latest legislative NHLA proposals, but I haven't been particularly impressed with most of them.

I think court actions are likely to be more effective for our cause, though it's surely good to get better representation as well. But court actions should help get better representation too.

I think the duties of all public officials are clearly stated in the law and I think it's not hard to show that many are negligent of their duties and do harm to the public, instead of serving our interests. I plan to find out where those duties are explained and to consider which officials to make claims against. Does anyone already have info on this to share here?

I propose that some Free Staters learn the law and collaborate to take cheap legal action to end major corruption. I'm learning myself. I'm open to suggestions for what sort of plan to develop for doing this. It seems that the federal government is the worst abuser, but will be somewhat harder to clean up, so I suppose it'll be best to start at the state level. Am I right?

  Luck, Why don,t you start right at the 3 branch of govt corruption. It starts at the Legislature by passing Bill of Attainers, and demanding the executive branch carry out laws while packing a gun and stopping everyones right to pass. Then the Judicial branch threatens citizens by extortion, imprisonment and lost of travel rights and pains and penalties all for a stop sign. Thats 3 branches of govt in one, and stops most travel violations, shuts down the court system for victimless crimes,  may also cover dog  license, zoning violations penalties, smoking cig without filter violations, fishing lic violations, protest without permit, etc.. Allows law enforcement to investagate crimes vs revenue enforcement, lowers man power and local taxes, allows more freedom for the citizens, redirects states funds for more vital purposes.

* Who's David Johnson? Does he have any legal experience? He claims to be taking on corrupt NH courts and govt. But his statements don't sound very authoritative. See below, which is a quote first of the blogger, then apparently of David Johnson, from this site: http://unmasker4maine.wordpress.com/2012/10/12/

N.H. Judicial Watch Takes On Judicial And Government Corruption

I received the following e-mail message from NHJudicialWatch@gmail.com . David must also include Obstruction of Justice and Hindering Prosecution.

... As a man, a living, breathing man, born on and of the land, of sound mind and body, not a PERSON, not a CORPORATION, not an INDIVIDUAL, not a “14th Amendment-U.S. CITIZEN, but an American, I COMMAND all public servants, government PERSONS and EMPLOYEES, to cease and desist from perpetrating these crimes against the people. We are not your underlings. We are not your subjects. We are not your slaves. We are not going to serve YOU. We are not going to be levied and burdened by you! We are not your EMPLOYEES. We are not wards of the court or the STATE. We are not in agreement with any contract, concealed contract, or unlawful ruling of the administrators of any bankruptcy. We do not consent to your jurisdiction over people. We do not consent to the fraud you perpetrate via your gross misperception of any alleged presumption of consent on our part, especially since you do this under the cloak of deceit. We are not beneath any CORPORATION. We SHALL NOT any longer tolerate the actions of those who usurp our law and constitutions, most especially the organic constitution. We are not going to tolerate YOU.

The New Hampshire Supreme Judicial Court operates outside law, and it routinely violates the rights of the people as it maintains a criminal enterprise, which is harming the people. It has no credible standing other that the support of its fellow usurpers. It makes the abusive rules which they claim we are suppose to appeal to them. They operate in camera and concealment. They claim their Judicial Conduct Committee can keep their receipts of complaints in camera. This cannot be done by a government agency unless they are acting as a private CORPORATION. We the people have the right to know. We the people have the right to know whenever our government acts to harm the people. We have no confidence in them.

After a history of abuses, there has been countless complaints, acts of violations, including but not limited to the murder of a jurist and the self immolation of a victim of said abuses. None of which has stopped the criminal activity routinely conducted in the Judicial Branch of New Hampshire Government. We have been insulted with the lies told in the General Court by Edwin Kelly and Howard Zibel. In pain language, the New Hampshire Supreme Judicial Court is NOT a Court of the people. As a man who abides by God’s law, I must act to prevent more of such crimes before they occur. The New Hampshire Supreme Judicial Court acts so as to incite unrest as they endanger our society and the safety of the people. THEY and only THEY are responsible for backing peaceful people into the corner, which precipitates such violent, blow-back reactions from their victims of rampant abuses. The New Hampshire Supreme Judicial Court is the most disgraceful band of common criminals I’ve ever witnessed in my entire existence on this Earth.

To further their insult and harm to the people, these criminals unlawfully require the people’s constitutionally elected County Attorneys to be members of the New Hampshire BAR Association, which allows them to facilitate statutory control over the grand juries of the people, which is a violation of the Taft Hartley Act, the constitutions, and their oaths of office. Title I Chapter 7 in the New Hampshire Statutes demonstrates the compilation of such usurpations: Attorneys General, Director of Charitable Trusts, and County Attorneys. Any high ranking Justice knows exactly which usurpation of the constitutions is being perpetrated in this travesty. Anyone responsible for these crimes is the most serious of felons and traitors. Through their control of the New Hampshire BAR Association, the County Attorneys cannot act in the best interest of the people who elected them, but instead they act in the best interest of the criminal enterprise run by the usurpers in the New Hampshire Supreme Judicial Court. Statutes have NO position over the constitutions. Nothing in the organic constitution or the 10th amendment leaves authority to STATE CORPORATIONS to override the God given rights of the people.

In the interest of justice, and for the well being of the people of the New Hampshire Republic, I am personally taking the initiative to form a Common Law Grand Jury to investigate, organize, and prosecute those who commit these crimes against the people they have sworn an oath to serve. We are living under the reign of terror by those with titles of honor and nobility. We have been violated and harmed by those who believe they are above Natural Law, Common Law, Constitutional Law, and those of which believe that Common Law is supposed to be replaced by Statute, which is intended to run government, not over the people. These criminals have perpetrated fraud and an undercurrent of dissent against the people with the assistance of clever wordsmiths acting as their agents in the General Court. I seriously recommend anyone who does not wish to be included in these prosecutions to abandon the joint effort of the conspirators who have already proven themselves to be traitors and felons.

Please forward all complaints of felony and treason and complaints you’ve forwarded to the Judicial Conduct Committee to me at NHJudicialWatch@gmail.com so I may review your credibility and documented proof of these crimes. I will hold all your information in confidence. I will accept these complaints from public servants in confidence. Anyone who works in or around the courts and their administrations may expect my full cooperation. I shall be traveling around New Hampshire to spread this message. We must stop those who have wrested control from the people. I encourage court workers, attorneys, security personnel, Sheriffs and their deputies, State Representatives, victims of court abuse, or witnesses of such crimes, to contact me. We have waited long enough. We are tired of witnessing the attacks of those who intend to destroy the House Redress of Grievances Committee, which they do in violation of their fiduciary duty to protect the people. Those who wish to destroy that Committee act in defiance to their oaths of office to uphold the constitutions, specifically Articles 31 & 32, First Part of the New Hampshire Constitution. These are the ones I intend to target with the highest priority along with the criminals in the Judicial Branch. These PERSONS are attempting to undermine the General Court, the court of the people. Their goal is to make the General Court irrelevant.

... PASS CACR 26! Vote to amend the constitution. The Court is under the people. We are not under the court. The courts have precipitated this issue because of their chronic abuses and cries. They ARE NOT to be trusted to make rules. THEY have proven that beyond the shadow of doubt. They do NOT serve you!”

NHJudicialWatch@gmail.com

Your servant,

David Johnson

* Someone tells me that Johnson is the best and goes straight for the jugular and adds, if anyone wants his help, "to provide Johnson with cases, witnesses, traffic tickets, pot violations, protest arrest, etc. Write to him, see if he can go against tax liens and forclousures."
* Since his email address is in the message I posted earlier, I guess I can write to him okay. I'll see if he'll answer.

Hmmm. After reading this post, and the one on the NH property tax, I'm beginning to think that New Hampshire is not as "free" as it used to be, or as people say it is.

We should not have to waste so much time and energy with all those legal actions, legislative proposals and trying to find "good" candidates to run for public offices. We have a right to just live our lives and not trespass onto others' property uninvited, and not use aggression or coercion against others.

If government criminals use aggression into out lives, well, many years ago there were people who believed that the 2nd Amendment was written to address that very concern.

What is really needed is mass passive resistance, or "civil disobedience," if you want to call it that.

  Freedom isn,t free. It takes a lot of hard work.      The Foundation of Authority , is based on the Consent of the People..   I like the idea of an year-round RV park. Leave me a message, I was looking for a spot to park my RV.  I understand that if you line poly under perimeter of unit and stack straw bales to under body it will warm the entire unit. Many permanent or folks looking to camp for winter do this and also frame a floor and a 12*12 room with door and window and place a wood stove there.

* The U.S. succeeded in gaining independence from Britain by not repeating the mistakes of the Greek city-states in antiquity, who were conquered because they didn't unite. Probably not everyone needs to take legal actions against govt criminals, but someone should, since it's probably the best chance for ridding ourselves of govt criminals. Since govt criminals have access to more guns that the rest of us do, our 2nd Amendment rights aren't going to have much effect, esp. if we're not unified. Oathkeepers seems to be trying to re-establish state militias to replace DHS and maybe the military.

It's not the "move to NH because NH is already perfect" project.

The goal is to move to NH because it's one of the freest places, and because the culture and legal system here is such that real change in the direction of more freedom is possible.

If you want to move someplace where there is already absolute liberty... good luck.  If you want to move someplace where you can enjoy a high degree of liberty, and stand a real chance of enjoying more and more liberty as the years go on, then NH is the place to be.

31 Questions and Answers about the Internal Revenue Service
certified by Paul Andrew Mitchell, B.A., M.S. [a private attorney general]
http://www.supremelaw.org/sls/31answers.htm
[See the link for many more details.]

1. … The IRS is not an organization within the United States Department of the Treasury [which] was organized by statutes now codified in Title 31…, abbreviated “31 U.S.C.” At footnote 23 in the case of Chrysler Corp. v. Brown, 441 U.S. 281 (1979), the U.S. Supreme Court admitted that no organic Act for the IRS could be found, after they searched for such an Act all the way back to the Civil War…. [So the] IRS is not a lawful organization.

2. When all the evidence is examined objectively, IRS appears to be a money laundry, extortion racket, and conspiracy…, … an organized crime syndicate operating under false and fraudulent pretenses….

3. … [T]here is no known Act of Congress, nor any Executive Order, giving IRS lawful jurisdiction to operate within any of the 50 States of the Union. Their presence [there] appears to stem from certain Agreements on Coordination of Tax Administration (“ACTA”), which … are demonstrably fraudulent, for example, by expressly defining “IRS” as a lawful bureau within the U.S. Department of the Treasury….

4. … Every piece of U.S. Mail sent from IRS with “Department of the Treasury” in the return address, is one count of mail fraud. See also 31 U.S.C. 333.

5. Although the U.S. Department of Justice (“DOJ”) does have power of attorney to represent federal agencies before federal courts, the IRS is not an “agency” as that term is legally defined…. The governments of all federal Territories are expressly excluded from the definition of federal “agency” by Act of Congress. See 5 U.S.C. 551(1)(C). Since IRS is domiciled in Puerto Rico…, it is thereby excluded from the definition of federal agencies which can be represented by the DOJ.

6. [T]he so-called 14th and 16th amendments [were not] properly ratified…. The so called 16th amendment has now been correctly identified as a major fraud upon the American People and the United States. … Similarly, the so-called 14th amendment was never properly ratified either. In the case of Dyett v. Turner, 439 P.2d 266, 270 (1968), the Utah Supreme Court recited numerous historical facts proving, beyond any shadow of a doubt, that the so called 14th amendment was likewise a major fraud upon the American People. … The Supreme Law Library has a collection of references detailing this major fraud. … The phrase “subject to the jurisdiction of the United States” [in the so called 14th amendment] is properly understood to mean “subject to the municipal jurisdiction of Congress.” …

7. … Section 1 of the Internal Revenue Code (“IRC”) contains no provisions creating a specific liability for taxes imposed by subtitle A. … A separate liability statute for “employment” taxes imposed by subtitle C is found at IRC section 3403. If the worker opts instead [of completing form W4] to complete a Withholding Exemption Certificate, consistent with IRC section 3402(n), … there is absolutely no liability for the worker or for the payroll officer….

8. … The Executive Branch of the federal government has no legislative power whatsoever. … If an Act of Congress fails to create a specific liability for any tax imposed by that Act, then there is no liability for that tax. …

9. The federal regulations create [no] income tax liability for any specific classes of people….

10. … There are two (2) classes of citizens: State Citizens and federal citizens. … Many … cases can be cited to confirm the existence of two classes of citizens under American Law. These cases are thoroughly documented in the book entitled “The Federal Zone: Cracking the Code of Internal Revenue” by Paul Andrew Mitchell …, also in the Supreme Law Library.

11. [One can] be a State Citizen, without also being a federal citizen…. The 1866 Civil Rights Act was municipal law, confined to the District of Columbia and other limited areas ... now identified as “the federal zone.” … Several courts have already recognized our Right to be State Citizens without also becoming federal citizens. … State Citizens are under no legal obligation to join or pledge any allegiance to [the federal zone].

13. … The term “Withholding agent” is legally defined at IRC section 7701(a)(16). … In plain English, a “withholding agent” is a person who is responsible for withholding taxes from a worker’s paycheck, and then paying those taxes into the Treasury of the United States, typically on a quarterly basis. See IRC section 7809. One cannot become a withholding agent unless workers first authorize taxes to be withheld from their paychecks … [on] a valid W 4 [form]….

http://www.supremelaw.org/sls/31answers.htm

14. … A “Withholding Exemption Certificate” is an alternative to Form W 4, authorized by IRC section 3402(n) and executed in lieu of Form W 4. … In the absence of an official IRS form, workers can use the language of section 3402(n) to create their own Certificates. … Many public and private institutions have created their own form for the Withholding Exemption Certificate, e.g. California Franchise Tax Board, and Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, Maryland….

15. … For purposes of the IRC, the term “employer” refers only to federal government agencies, and an “employee” is a person who works for such an “employer”.

17. ... The term "United States" may be used in any one of several senses. [1] It may be merely the name of a sovereign occupying the position analogous to that of other sovereigns in the family of nations. [2] It may designate the territory over which the sovereignty of the United States extends [the federal zone, not the states], or [3] it may be the collective name of the States which are united by and under the Constitution. … The second of these three meanings refers to the federal zone and to Congress only when it is legislating in its municipal capacity. For example, Congress is legislating in its municipal capacity whenever it creates a federal corporation, like the United States Postal Service….

18. … The Eighth Circuit Court of Appeals has already ruled that … “The general term ‘income’ is not defined in the Internal Revenue Code.” U.S. v. Ballard, 535 F.2d 400, 404 (8th Circuit, 1976). Moreover, in Mark Eisner v. Myrtle H. Macomber, 252 U.S. 189 (1920), the high Court told Congress it could not legislate any definition of “income”…. In Merchant's Loan & Trust Co. v. Smietanka, 255 U.S. 509 (1921), the high Court defined “income” to mean the profit or gain derived from corporate activities….

19. ... The IRC’s income tax provisions are municipal law. Municipal law is law that is enacted to govern the internal affairs of a sovereign State…. In fact, American legal encyclopedias define “municipal” to mean “internal”, and for this reason alone, the Internal Revenue Code is really a Municipal Revenue Code [internal to] the Federal Zone….

20. … If a power is not enumerated in the U.S. Constitution, then Congress does not have any authority to exercise that power. … If [a state] is not mentioned in any of the federal income tax statutes, then those statutes have no force or effect within that State. … The many different definitions of the term “State” that are found in federal laws are intentionally written to appear as if they include the 50 States PLUS the other places mentioned. As the legal experts in Congress have now confirmed, this is NOT the correct way to interpret, or to construct, these statutes….

21. … There are numerous other ways in which the IRC is deliberately vague. … Whether the vagueness is deliberate or not, any statute is unconstitutionally void if it is vague. If a statute is void for vagueness, the situation is the same as if it had never been enacted at all, and for this reason it can be ignored entirely.

22. … Title 26 of the United States Code (“U.S.C.”) … has never been enacted into positive law, as such. … Accordingly, the provisions of subtitle F have never taken effect. … This subtitle contains all of the enforcement statutes of the IRC…. In other words, the IRC … can impose no legal obligations upon anyone….

23. … [T]he federal criminal Code at Title 18, U.S.C., does grant general authority to the District Courts of the United States (“DCUS”) to prosecute violations of the statutes found in that Code. See 18 U.S.C. 3231. It is very important to appreciate the fact that these courts are not the same as the United States District Courts (“USDC”). The DCUS are constitutional courts that originate in Article III of the U.S. Constitution. The USDC are territorial tribunals, or legislative courts, that originate in Article IV, Section 3, Clause 2 of the U.S. Constitution, also known as the Territory Clause. … The USDC, as such, appear to lack any lawful authorities to prosecute income tax crimes….

25. … Federal grand juries cannot issue valid indictments against illegal tax protesters. … [T]he term “illegal” cannot modify the noun “protesters” because to do so would constitute a violation of the First Amendment…. [T]he term “illegal” must modify the noun “tax”.

26. … IRS agents routinely tamper with federal grand juries, most often by misrepresenting themselves, under oath, as lawful employees and “Special Agents” of the federal government, and by misrepresenting the provisions of subtitle F as having any legal force or effect. … They tamper with grand juries by acting as if “income” is everything that “comes in”, … by presenting documentary evidence which they had no authority to acquire, in the first instance, such as bank records, … by creating and maintaining the false and fraudulent pretenses that the IRC is not vague, or that the income tax provisions have any legal force or effect inside the 50 States of the Union, … [and by bribing] U.S. Attorneys, federal judges, and even the Office of the President with huge kickbacks, every time a criminal indictment is issued by a federal grand jury against an “illegal tax” protester, [which] range from $25,000 to $35,000 in CASH! … As a trust domiciled in Puerto Rico, the IRS is, without a doubt, a federal government subcontractor [which cannot lawfully pay such kickbacks]….

28. … [T]he IRS [cannot] levy bank accounts without a valid court order…. The Fifth Amendment prohibits all deprivations of life, liberty, or property without due process of law…, [which] requires Notice and Hearing before any property can be seized by any federal government employees, agents, departments or agencies.

29. … The final report of the Grace Commission, convened under President Ronald Reagan, quietly admitted that none of the funds [IRS agents] collect from federal income taxes goes to pay for any federal government services, [but] were being used to pay for interest on the federal debt, and income transfer payments to beneficiaries of entitlement programs like federal pension plans.

The Bureau of Internal Revenue (IRS) is a bureau within the Department of Treasury.
And there is no such thing as a State citizen.

Not to mention ignoring 3401, is simply either willful ignorance.

     Luck, you proved your point almost completely. Thanks for the info, I was wondering where you were. John, tell about 3401, so we can be enlightened. If irs is under bureau of the dept. of treasury, then why is Geithner in charge of the irs, and Secretary of the treasury? The Treasurer of the United States has its own dept head. Why is their 2 TWO treasury depts in the United States????????? Its right on all your dollar bills, and they are different depts..                                        The other thing to look at here is Congresses, Paper Reduction Act. they passed this years ago. The act identifies all ALL federal govt forms and paper work with bar codes and 16 digit numerals within bar code. So now lets look at irs forms and letters to see where the bar code with the 16 digits are. Especially irs letters and bills, or demands??     Domiliced Trust in PR, very interesting. Maybe like federal reserve incorporated in Delaware?

3401 has the definitions for wages... and I've already posted a link to it.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Treasurer_of_the_United_States
Is that what your asking about?

They aren't in different Departments.
We could look to see the 16 digit bar code, but I don't get all the forms.
And is every regional bank incorporated in Delaware? Or just one/some?

  Treasury Dept and Secy of the Treasury are 2 different departments right on the treasury dept web site you gave me..  I don,t know what banks are incorporated in Delaware, the state tries to be secret about it. But, the Federal Reserve admitted they are Incorporated out of Delaware. IRS letters are missing the proper numerical Bar Codes. Only US Govt agencies can use those codes.

14. … A “Withholding Exemption Certificate” is an alternative to Form W 4, authorized by IRC section 3402(n) and executed in lieu of Form W 4. … In the absence of an official IRS form, workers can use the language of section 3402(n) to create their own Certificates. … Many public and private institutions have created their own form for the Withholding Exemption Certificate, e.g. California Franchise Tax Board, and Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, Maryland….

15. … For purposes of the IRC, the term “employer” refers only to federal government agencies, and an “employee” is a person who works for such an “employer”.

17. ... The term "United States" may be used in any one of several senses. [1] It may be merely the name of a sovereign occupying the position analogous to that of other sovereigns in the family of nations. [2] It may designate the territory over which the sovereignty of the United States extends [the federal zone, not the states], or [3] it may be the collective name of the States which are united by and under the Constitution. … The second of these three meanings refers to the federal zone and to Congress only when it is legislating in its municipal capacity. For example, Congress is legislating in its municipal capacity whenever it creates a federal corporation, like the United States Postal Service….

18. … The Eighth Circuit Court of Appeals has already ruled that … “The general term ‘income’ is not defined in the Internal Revenue Code.” U.S. v. Ballard, 535 F.2d 400, 404 (8th Circuit, 1976). Moreover, in Mark Eisner v. Myrtle H. Macomber, 252 U.S. 189 (1920), the high Court told Congress it could not legislate any definition of “income”…. In Merchant's Loan & Trust Co. v. Smietanka, 255 U.S. 509 (1921), the high Court defined “income” to mean the profit or gain derived from corporate activities….

19. ... The IRC’s income tax provisions are municipal law. Municipal law is law that is enacted to govern the internal affairs of a sovereign State…. In fact, American legal encyclopedias define “municipal” to mean “internal”, and for this reason alone, the Internal Revenue Code is really a Municipal Revenue Code [internal to] the Federal Zone….





  Number 18 tells us Income, is a corporate profit or gain., and Congress and codes can,t define Income. Duality also doesn,t change the english langage," Congress  can only delegate authorty overs its 10 square miles, or terrirtories.  W4 forms of Exemptions are available for citizens who earn wages vs income. Next above we have federal zones, number 17. maybe this is why the States have their own Legislature because Congress have no Authority in the 50 except where expressly written.

Could you complete that quotation for us?  Maybe you could tell us a bit about the facts of the case?  You've read it, right?  I mean, you're not just telling us, "this is a fact," without having actually examined the evidence, yourself, right?

Moreover, in Mark Eisner v. Myrtle H. Macomber, 252 U.S. 189 (1920), the high Court told Congress it could not legislate any definition of “income”

No, it said that Congress could not legislate a definition that was contrary to the Constitution, and that the meaning given to "income" should be "the ordinary sense of the word."  Far from supporting your position, Esiner v. Macomber actually contradicts your hypothesis.

In Merchant's Loan & Trust Co. v. Smietanka, 255 U.S. 509 (1921), the high Court defined “income” to mean the profit or gain derived from corporate activities….

No, it does not say that.  It says that corporate income is defined in the Corporation Excise Tax Act of 1909, and that they will be using that definition in their ruling, since it was a case relating to corporate profits.  Just prior to that, the Court says that, "Income may be defined as a gain derived from capital, from labor, or from both combined..." [emphasis added].

You keep bringing up cases that disprove your point.  I'm really thinking that you've never actually read these cases that you keep citing, and I think that, in the spirit of honest discourse, you should probably refrain from posting things which you have not examined for yourself.  We're all capable of using the Internet to find various citations of varying quality, so it adds nothing to this discussion if you are not presenting something that you, yourself, have examined and believe to be true based upon your own personal knowledge of the subject.

Hopely we don,t rely on judicial rulings to make laws of the land.

As John noted, you're relying on such rulings.

And yes, I would rely upon government courts to rule on what government laws say.

Taxation isn't unacceptable because someone mis-interpreted the law.  The law could specifically state, "each individual must pay $1000 to the government, each year," with no ambiguity at all, and taxation would still be unacceptable, because robbing others is immoral, no matter what the law says.

Federal law says that individuals owe taxes upon their income, which yes, does include wages.  That's what it says.  The mafia says, "if you live in this town, you owe us protection money."  Neither one has any more legitimacy than the other; not because they don't say the things that they say, or because it's somehow being mis-interpreted, but because robbery and extortion are wrong.

Lawsuit Self-Help ... Step-by-Step Tips & Tactics

WARNING! These are Just Tips! ... You Need to Know Much More to Win in Court!
www.Jurisdictionary.com - Call Toll Free: 866-LAW-EASY ... ( 866-529-3279 )

Ignorance of the Law is NO EXCUSE!
 
If "ignorance of the law is no excuse" then knowing how to find official law that will decide the outcome of your case is critical to winning! Fortunately, the "law of your case" is much simpler than you might imagine and easy to find! Most cases are won or lost on very few "laws", perhaps a single statute and 3-4 appellate court decisions interpreting how that statute applies to the facts.

If you had to go to court 30 years ago, before personal computers and the internet, you'd have to dig through the dismally dry and boring stacks of thousands of look-alike books in a law library (if you could find one nearby). Back then, winning a lawsuit required litigants to spend hour-upon-hour turning dusty pages, pulling down piles of books to spread on the library table next to their yellow pad in what was often a fruitless search for the legal support their arguments needed. All that has changed, thanks to the internet and competition between legal research sites that is driving the price down to a reasonable level where pretty much anyone who needs to do on-line legal research can afford it.

But, will you know how? My course materials on legal research include videos showing actual screen-shots of on-line searches so an average 8th grader with reasonable computer skills will be able to find constitutional provisions, statutes, code, and appellate court opinions to support pretty much any legal argument you can think of. These days it's sooo easy to do legal research on-line ... an average 8th grader can do it!

Instead of digging through thousands of books differing only by the numbers printed on their impressively formidable spines, you can log-on any of the growing number of competent legal databases and, with the flick of a few keyboard fingers find thousands of cases that deal with the issues of your case in seconds!Learn from Jurisdictionary step-by-step. Google® can get you started ... for free! But, don't rely on Google® as the final authority. Google® will provide a good start in most cases, but before you go to court to argue how the appellate opinion you found is the final say-so, you need to dig deeper.

My affordable, official, 24-hour step-by-step Jurisdictionary "How to Win in Court" self-help course explains legal research with examples you can try out for yourself. Once you finish the course you'll know how to find appellate decisions that favor your cause ... and you'll know how to cite them to the court in proper format. You’ll know how to tell the judge why you should win by citing authorities the judge is required by law to obey: court rules, cases, constitutional provisions, statutes and codes.
Clever argument is not enough. You cannot win without finding and citing the legal authorities that control judges. Those who don’t know how to find and cite legal authority cannot control judges nor win on appeal so they lose -- needlessly! In the heat of your lawsuit battles, you can be certain the other side will cite legal authorities favoring his case. It’s essential to winning! You must do the same thing -- if you want to win.

How to Control those who Control YOU!


The Wild Wild West was won by a very small number of folks clever enough to bring the following essential with them to establish "Law & Order" in the unsettled plains and mountains west of the Mississippi:
    Thoroughly-read Bible,
    Loaded Colt revolver and Winchester rifle,
    Good horse and well-provisioned wagon, and
    A sturdy copy of Blackstone's Commentaries on the Laws of England

England, did you say?
Yup! In that single book (you can get a Kindle or Nook version for free) written before our Declaration of Independence, they found enough common-sense law to settle towns, bring railroads, jail bandits, and hang rustlers.

Contrary to what you've seen on TV and in the movies, it wasn't faster guns and bigger fists that settled lawless cowtowns like Tombstone and Dodge City. It was the support of local townsfolk who wanted law and believed in the principles of Justice found in those two books: the Bible and Blackstone.

We each face the threat of similar lawlessness. Yes, today! Perhaps especially today! It may be a bank using fraud to foreclose. It may be a corrupt business partner, ex-spouse, or next-door neighbor out-of-control. For many it's the threat of government officials refusing to follow the law - tax collectors, police officers, and corrupt judges who break the law to allow fraud a free rein in their courts as lawyers rape the people who do not know what my affordable, official, 24-hour step-by-step Jurisdictionary "How to Win in Court" self-help course makes so easy to understand.

When "the law" is an outlaw, there's only one remedy. The Rules! Did you know the Rules of Evidence that control all civil and criminal proceedings in our state and federal courts comprise less than 30 pages in the official rule books? Did you know the Rules of Procedure that control all civil and criminal proceedings in our state and federal courts comprise not many more than 60 pages in the official rule books? Learn from Jurisdictionary step-by-step. These are the rules YOU can use to control every judge, every lawyer, every bank, every giant corporation, or even your next-door neighbor or business partner, and every state and federal agency trying to pull the wool over your eyes.

Why be needlessly robbed of your rights by not knowing this handful of rules or how to use them to stop the rich and powerful from running your world? Your legal problems today can be solved the same way western settlers brought lawlessness to its knees in the prairies and remote Rocky Mountain regions more than a century ago, as did those who settled our Eastern cities and towns more than two centuries ago.

The Rules control lawlessness! Once YOU know the rules and how to use them to control corrupt judges and crooked lawyers, Justice is Yours! The Rules of Evidence and Rules of Procedure protect you and your children from lawless legal officials, crooked lawyers, corrupt judges, scheming bankers, incompetent doctors, rival siblings, and everyone else who does you harm or seeks to do so. The Rules and how to use them are easy to learn with my popular, affordable, 24-hour Jurisdictionary step-by-step self-help course!

You have a remedy at law ... once you know … the rules. If a fraudulent lender, bill collector, tax man, corrupt judge, crooked lawyer, or anyone else uses unlawful force to deprive you or your family of your rights, you have a powerful remedy! THE RULES OF COURT! The Rules of Evidence and Procedure RULE the courts! This is true only for those who know how to use them!

The Rules of Court are the People's power to control our government and command our leaders to protect us and address our grievances with court orders that can command even those in the highest offices, the richest of the rich, the biggest of the big. The Rules are what the 4th of July is all about! The Rules don't just give us "rights". The Rules give "power to enforce our rights"! That's how the West was won! Knowing how to use the Rules is how you win!

Finding Evidence - Part One ...
http://Jurisdictionary.com

Evidence is the "stuff" you need to prove your case. But, how do you find it? That's the fun part! In this Tips & Tactics I give you a few ideas on how to use interrogatories to find evidence. You'll learn much more with my affordable, official, step-by-step 24-hour Jurisdictionary "How to Win in Court" self-help course everyone is talking about!

Interrogatories! Sounds complicated, doesn't it? Actually, interrogatories are nothing more than written questions that must be answered in writing and under oath! That's all they are. You'll find forms for them in my course. The main thing to remember is you are limited to a certain number. Jurisdictions differ on the total number of written questions you can serve. Once you've used your limit for a particular respondent, you may not be allowed to use any more for that same respondent. You may move the court for an order granting you permission to use more, however there is no certainty you'll get such an order. So, use them wisely and sparingly.

Rule 33 Federal Rules of Civil Procedure states, "Unless otherwise stipulated or ordered by the court, a party may serve on any other party no more than 25 written interrogatories, including all discrete subparts." Individual state rules may allow more or less, but most courts put a fixed limit on the number of interrogatories you can use without obtaining a special court order that is difficult to get except in very special circumstances..

The first interrogatory I serve on opponents reads, "Identify all persons having first-hand knowledge of any material fact alleged in the pleadings of this case and, with regard to each such person, state what they know about each such fact and how they came to know it."

The other side will have a fit! Learn from Jurisdictionary step-by-step. They will frequently respond, "Objection, overbroad, unduly burdensome, not calculated to lead to admissible evidence, seeks to inquire into attorney-client privilege," etc., etc., etc. If you get one of these boiler-plate responses, immediately file a "Motion for Better Answers to Interrogatories" and set your motion for hearing!

You are entitled to evidence disclosure! In fact, Rule 26 Federal Rules of Civil Procedure requires such disclosure, as do the rules of every state court. Don't be hoodwinked by your lack of knowledge about rules and what they require of your opponents. And, don't be fooled by the all-too-common objection, "The facts sought are not admissible at trial." Facts sought during discovery (i.e., before trial) do not have to be admissible at trial. Rules of evidence for discovery requests like interrogatories are different from rules that control evidence at trial. Don't ever forget this. Lawyers may try to trick you by claiming what you seek is inadmissible. Doesn't matter! If it is "reasonably calculated to lead to the discovery of admissible evidence" it is fair game!

Rule 26(b) Federal Rules of Civil Procedure provides, "Parties may obtain discovery regarding any nonprivileged matter that is relevant to any party's claim or defense” including the existence, description, nature, custody, condition, and location of any documents or other tangible things and the identity and location of persons who know of any discoverable matter. For good cause, the court may order discovery of any matter relevant to the subject matter involved in the action. Relevant information need not be admissible at the trial if the discovery appears reasonably calculated to lead to the discovery of admissible evidence." State rules generally follow the federal rule. Don't be left holding an empty evidence bag!

How to use interrogatories (and your other powerful evidence-finding discovery tools) is explained in my case-winning, affordable, amazingly popular, 4-CD, step-by-step, 24-hour official Jurisdictionary "How to Win in Court" self-help course everyone is talking about. Don't let lawyers trick you! You have an unchallengeable right to find the evidence you need to prove your case. Evidence + Legal Authority = Victory in Court!

In NH, all requests for discovery material should state that the request is made pursuant to the rules of evidence and RSA91-A (NH's equivalent of the Freedom Of Information Act).

Evidence which is not subject to discovery requests may still be subject to a 91-A request.  There's a sample discovery letter here (http://nhunderground.com/forum/index.php?topic=22604.msg335138#msg335138).  Note that it was for a specific (drug-related) case, so not all of the portions are applicable.  However, the last time I heard of someone using a derivation from that, the prosecutor showed up for trial, admitted he had not provided the requested evidence, and the judge simply said, "let's make this easy, then... case dismissed."

However, again, note that it's an example, not something to copy&paste.  If you don't have the legal knowledge to write something that actually matches your needs, find someone who does.

When "the law" is an outlaw, there's only one remedy. The Rules!



                         The book starts with the Bible, it is the only rule book for the people. The judges are called "your Honor" meaning he is the most honorable possible man in your County, he is above corruption, he is moral to the bone, he raised his right hand and swore to the Lord with his hand on the Bible that he will protect all people before him, Their Constitutional Rights and their Natural Rights. Blackstone which is a college course in its own right, teaches its readers that you can,t have two Masters. Now, and before, there are two laws, natural law from your Creator, and man-made laws. The person has to decide which Laws rule your life and family and future. If you have to go into an unjust court, they have no jurisdiction over your life or rights, unless you deem them just under their Oath of Office. You can,t make a plea to a court that is against Natural law, then and only then through your weakness you will have surrendered your jurisdiction over to them. You have the right to object to rulings and orders, not the court ordering them, they serve you. I repeat, you can,t have two Masters. You may have to have to serve 72 hours of free food and thats all they can hold you for. They can,t hold a trial in their legal sense until you make a plea. Once your assigned a case # without your plea, then total motion the case thru indictments of the entire system from legislature to the Governor who passed the unlawful laws to the State Attorney and the illegal Judicial. It starts with Gods Natural Law and the Bible, written in Blackstone and followed by countries around the Globe. Called Common Law for common men and women.

Finding Evidence - Part Two ...
www.Jurisdictionary.com [This is mostly advertising, but I think it's worthwhile because it's also educational. - Luck]

Perhaps your most powerful tool for finding evidence is the Request for Admissions. It's as simple as it sounds. A request for admissions is simply a list of facts or the application of law to facts that you serve on your opponent and which he is required to answer on the public record within a set amount of time or have all those things treated as if they were admitted!

There's a lot more to it than I can tell in a single Tips & Tactics, of course, so order my amazingly popular, case-winning, 4-CD, affordable, step-by-step, 24-hour official Jurisdictionary "How to Win in Court" course everyone is talking about and start winning today!

Requests for Admissions are POWERFUL! If you know how to use them properly, that is. Both plaintiffs and defendants can use them to force their opponent to ADMIT the truth of facts stated in the request or the genuineness of documents attached to the request. If your opponent fails to respond to your requests for admissions before the deadline, you can move the court for an order deeming everything admitted for all purposes!

Sample forms are in my official "How to Win in Court" self-help course.Learn from Jurisdictionary step-by-step. WARNING: If you receive a request for admissions, do not fail to respond before the deadline! Failure to respond on time can result in the court treating all requested admissions as "admitted for all purposes".

Another good thing about requests for admissions is that they are like leading questions! For example, (Sample forms are in my course.) you can force opponents to admit they don't have the original signed promissory note or mortgage, for example, and they have a certain period of time to respond or face the prospect of having the court enter an order deeming such facts admitted for all purposes.

You can force opponents to admit they lack first-hand knowledge of specific facts alleged in their pleadings. If they admit, you can use a Motion to Strike (sample forms in the course) to knock those allegations out of the case. You can force opponents to admit documents you attach to your request as Exhibits are essentially accurate copies of documents that might be difficult to get into evidence without using your opponents' admissions. (sample forms for this also in the course).

My affordable, official, step-by-step, 24-hour Jurisdictionary "How to Win in Court" self-help course explains so simply people tell us an average 8th grader can do it. That's why the course is so very amazingly popular! Since in federal and many state jurisdictions, the total number of requests for admissions you may use for any particular respondent is limited, use them to find essential evidence.

In many jurisdictions, boiler-plate objections to requests for admissions are not allowed. Your opponents cannot respond, "Objection, overbroad, burdensome, not calculated to lead to admissible evidence, seeks to inquire into attorney-client privilege," etc., etc., etc. They must admit or deny before the deadline! If they fail to respond before the deadline, or if they file some objection, immediately file a "Motion for an Order Deeming Admissions Admitted" and set your motion for hearing!

You are entitled to evidence disclosure! In fact, Rule 26 Federal Rules of Civil Procedure requires such disclosure, as do the state courts. So, don't be hoodwinked by your own lack of knowledge about rules and what they require of opponents. Get my official Jurisdictionary "How to Win in Court" self-help course now, if you don't already have its case-winning power.

And, don't be fooled by the all-too-common objection, "The facts sought are not admissible at trial." They don't have to be admissible at trial! Rules of evidence discovery are different from rules that control at trial.

Rule 26(b) Federal Rules of Civil Procedure provides, "Parties may obtain discovery regarding any nonprivileged matter that is relevant to any party's claim or defense — including the existence, description, nature, custody, condition, and location of any documents or other tangible things and the identity and location of persons who know of any discoverable matter. For good cause, the court may order discovery of any matter relevant to the subject matter involved in the action. Relevant information need not be admissible at the trial if the discovery appears reasonably calculated to lead to the discovery of admissible evidence." State rules generally follow the federal rule.

What you seek with all five (5) of your discovery tools (explained fully in my affordable Jurisdictionary course with sample forms) is evidence in support of the "ultimate facts" that tend to prove the allegations of your position and disprove those of your opponent ... nothing more, please!

Don't let lawyers trick you! You have an unquestioned right to find evidence that tends to prove the facts you alleged in your pleadings and disprove the facts alleged in your opponent's pleadings. Everything else is a waste of time! Evidence + Legal Authority = Victory in Court! If you can't find evidence, you lose!

Finding Evidence - Part Three ...
In the past two Tips & Tactics I touched on how to use "Interrogatories" and "Requests for Admissions" to get evidence into the court's record. In this Tips & Tactics I give you a few preliminary tips on how to use another of your 5 discovery tools - Requests for Production. Of course you'll find sample forms and more in-depth how-to in my affordable, official 24-hour step-by-step Jurisdictionary "How to Win in Court" self-help course everyone is talking about.

Requests for Production are just what the name says. They are documents commanding your opponent to produce documents and tangible things for your inspection and copying! Finding evidence was never easier! If you know how to use requests for production wisely to get around your opponents' objections. Both plaintiffs and defendants can use requests for production at any time after the plaintiff's initial Complaint is served.

Even though they are called "requests", you can to force your opponent to produce all documents and things "reasonably calculated to lead to discovery of admissible evidence". The documents and things themselves need not be "admissible evidence".

This is a key point you must understand about using your 5 discovery tools to find evidence. Unlike the rules at trial, during the pre-trial discovery phase of a lawsuit, facts sought need not be admissible at trial so long as they are reasonably likely to lead to the discovery of evidence that will be admissible at trial. Lawyers will try to "hide the ball". Don't let them. Learn how to use the rules with my affordable, official 24-hour step-by-step Jurisdictionary "How to Win in Court" self-help course. Protect yourself from the crooked, deceitful games many lawyers play!

The most common use of requests for production is to force opponents to let you examine documents, but if the facts of your case are such that you need to examine your opponent's toothbrush, and that examination is "reasonably calculated to lead to the discovery of admissible evidence", you can require your opponent to let you examine his toothbrush ... or an airplane engine or the medical instruments used to perform surgery on your knee!

Most commonly what you seek to examine are documents:
    Mortgage,
    Promissory Note,
    Credit card charge slips signed by you,
    Accounting statements,
    Cancelled checks,
    Phone records,
    Etcetera

Lawyers will put up every roadblock they can think of to keep you from "discovering" documents and things that will give you victory in your case. They'll object. They'll drag their feet. They'll put everything you want in one big bankers box and leave you to sort through it all to find what you need. They'll claim you shouldn't be allowed to see certain things on the ground they are "trade secrets" or protected by attorney-client privilege. Since 1986 when I started practice as an attorney licensed in state and federal courts, I've seen such objections time and time again in all their nasty, deceitful, and treacherously creative forms.

Time and time again I got what I wanted from the other side! You can, too, when you know what my course makes so easy "An 8th grader can do it!"Learn from Jurisdictionary step-by-step For example, if you serve your opponent with a request for production of their banking records, and they respond with their standard baloney ("objection, overbroad, unduly burdensome, not likely to lead to admissible evidence"), it is 100% certain there's a reason why they don't want you to see those records.

My course shows you how to draft your requests in an effective way (with sample forms), how to draft and file a Motion to Compel Production (with sample forms) if they don't produce, and how to force the judge to order them to produce! If you don't yet know how to do these things, you might as well give up the fight now.

You cannot win until you know how to use your 5 pre-trial discovery tools! My my affordable, official 24-hour step-by-step Jurisdictionary "How to Win in Court" self-help course makes it so easy "An 8th grader can do it".

Finding Evidence - Part 4
Depositions


Jurisdictionary.com
Today I give you a few tips how to use Depositions from the complete tutorials in my increasingly popular and affordable, official 24-hour, step-by-step Jurisdictionary "How to Win in Court" self-help course. Sample forms are included in the course.

Another imposing word "depositions", however it means nothing more than to strip someone of their official immunity (if they have any), place them under a solemn oath that exposes them to criminal penalties for perjury, and ask them questions in the presence of an official recording stenographer so there may be an official written transcript of what the witness has to say before you run the risk of expecting them to say a certain something at trial!

Depositions are your opportunity to put your opponent and every necessary witness under oath before trial and get answers to questions that go beyond the tight restrictions of the rules of evidence that control at trial! The facts you seek to get by asking questions at a deposition need not be admissible at trial so long as they are "reasonably calculated to lead to the discovery of admissible evidence". Most often you'll schedule some time at a court reporter's office. If you are pro se you may be expected to pay for the court reporter's time in advance, since you cannot be disbarred for failure to pay your financial obligations.

If a witness is unable to attend, the court reporter may travel to take the deposition at a hospital, for example, or at the witness's home or business. If the witness is at a great distance, you may hire an official court reporter where the witness lives and take the deposition by telephone. I had some difficult witnesses a while back for whom it was necessary to take their deposition in front of a judge with a handful of armed bailiffs in the courtroom to keep everyone under control, but that's rare!

However it's done, taking depositions is simply one of putting a witness under oath in the presence of a court reporter (who administers the oath and records all that's asked and answered) and in the presence of your opponent (and his counsel, if he has a lawyer) who may also ask questions of the witness. Learn from Jurisdictionary step-by-step

A witness at a depostion is called the "deponent". Everything said at a deposition goes in "the record". If your opponent or his lawyer gets out of control, simply state, "Let the record reflect that opposing counsel is screaming at my witness." That will put a stop to the games!

If you subpoena a witness or notice your opponent for "deposition duces tecum", you can require the witness or your opponent to bring certain documents or things listed in the subpoena or notice. The complicated term "duces tecum" simply means "bring it with you". Sample forms in the course. Then question them about the listed documents and things.

Knowing how and when to take depositions gives you an advantage over your opponent. Many lawyers take depositions too early! They go on a "fishing expedition" in search of evidence, wasting valuable time asking questions about irrelevant facts that cannot possibly help prove the "elements" of their case or disprove the "elements" of their opponent's case. Of course, they make more money wasting everyone's time. You cannot afford to waste time or money! I tell you in the course how to put a stop to this.

Depositions can be the most effective tool to devastate your opponent and win in court with critical evidence you cannot get any other way before trial, but if you don't yet understand how to use depositions effectively, they hurt your chances for winning, instead of helping you.

Never take depositions until you've made a list of all the essential "ultimate fact elements" supporting each and every "cause of action" alleged in the pleadings. (Explained in the course.) Remember: Lawyers get paid for their time. The more time they can spend on a case, the more money they make. Using hours of billable time taking depositions is a good thing for lawyers. It is not a good thing for you! Depositions should be a "go in, ask questions to get only the facts that prove or disprove the elements, and quit".

Case-Winning Paperwork - Part 1

Want to drive your opponents nuts? Tie them down with word-power!

I've been a lawyer since 1986, and what I tell you here (and with more details in my "How to Win in Court" step-by-step self-help course) will empower you to stuff your opponents in a neatly-packaged word-box and win your case hands-down! Many lawyers never understand this ... so they lose, needlessly. Most pro se people never understand this, either ... so they lose, needlessly.

The key is nothing harder than writing simple sentences. Short sentences. Powerful sentences. Sentences with ONE VERB. Sentences with ONE SUBJECT. Sentences that EACH HAVE THEIR OWN PARAGRAPH NUMBER! That's right. Every sentence gets its own paragraph, and each of those paragraphs has a separate number. (The course gives sample forms to show you how.) One sentence per numbered paragraph. One subject. One verb. And only the absolutely necessary adjectives and adverbs.

If it's important to note that your opponent's nose was gigantic, say so. Otherwise, leave it out! Too many adjectives and adverbs just complicate your case unnecessarily, give the other side more things to argue about ... things that ultimately have nothing to do with what it takes to win!

A sentence is a complete thought. Mrs. Edgerton taught me that in Second Grade. It's helped me win countless court battles. Every simple sentence starts with a capital letter, ends with a period, and contains just one verb, and just one subject. No commas or semi-colons unless absolutely, positively necessary and for a purpose that promotes your cause!

Learn from Jurisdictionary step-by-step
Consider these two sets of numbered paragraphs:
1.    Defendant was very forceful and convincing when he said he would spray my strawberry plants every week during the four months I was away on business in Europe shopping for priceless art treasures for my adorable wife, however he did not at any time while I was gone spray my strawberries, because he was off playing poker in Las Vegas and losing his shirt, so I lost most of my strawberry crop this year to tiny green bugs that ate the beautiful white strawberry blossoms before my plants could bear their luscious fruit.
2.    I paid defendant $2,000 before leaving for Europe, and he didn't ask for any more money, so I assumed he would do what he said he would do, but he didn't, so I lost a great deal of money.
3.    This is why I have sued him.

- - - - - - -

1.    Plaintiff and defendant entered a written agreement.
2.    Copy of agreement attached as Exhibit A.
3.    Defendant promised to spray plaintiff's strawberries with insecticide from 5 December 2009 through 15 April 2010.
4.    Defendant agreed to do the job for $2,000.
5.    Plaintiff paid Defendant $2,000 on 1 December 2009.
6.    Defendant failed to spray plaintiff's strawberries.
7.    Plaintiff suffered money damages exceeding $15,000.

- Each sentence has it's own paragraph number.
- Each sentence has one verb, one subject.
- Each sentence has minimal adjectives or adverbs.
- Each sentence is a complete thought.
- There can be no doubt what your words mean!
- Winning in court is all about effective communication.
- Communicate effectively with simple sentences.

Case-Winning Paperwork - Part 2

What is the goal of legal writing? I urge you to think about this question ... really, really hard and long! What is your goal? Impress the judge? Confuse the opponent? Or, win the case?

Everything we do in life has in one sense or another a particular goal. Some things we do are automatic, like breathing, yet there is always a goal. In business, the goal is to provide a benefit to others that they will want to pay for. In sports, the goal is to perform to the highest of our athletic ability. In law, the goal is to achieve certain well defined benchmarks!

Here is where most lawyers and nearly all pro se people miss the boat ... they get sidetracked! Every word, spoken in the courtroom or written on paper filed with the clerk and served on the other side, must aim toward a specific goal.

Any words not aimed at the goal must go! Since 1997, when I started Jurisdictionary, I've received hundreds of documents to review. In all but a few I could strike out 90% of the words to improve the
    punch,
    power, and
    persuasive effect!

Most of what I've seen from pro se people (and quite a bit from the dozens of lawyers I had to deal with since 1986 when I first started off as a licensed attorney) read more like a writer trying to tell a long-winded story. Legal writing is NOT "story-telling"!

I rebuilt a few car engines in my youth. I removed bolts and nuts and gaskets and pins. I placed all these parts on a sheet of cardboard on garage floor. Everything was arranged neatly and in order. When the time came to put the engine back together, each part had its place, and that's where I put each part ... in its place! A place for every part. Every part in its place. I didn't add any parts. I didn't leave any parts out. I wanted the engine to run properly when re-assembled!

That's good legal writing, too! Every word has a purpose. Any word that can do nothing substantial to achieve the goal (which is winning, by the way) must go.

Years before law school, I worked as a newspaper reporter. The city editor was kind to me personally but ruthless with my writing. I learned from him. To this day I apply what he taught. "Say what needs saying and stop!"

Learn from Jurisdictionary step-by-step
What's true for good newspaper writing is doubly true for legal writing. Say what needs saying and stop! There is no room for embellishment or poetic verse in legal documents. There's no room to impress judges with florid style or complex vocabulary. Stick to the point.

A sharp wit and controlled sense of humor has its place in legal writing, however. Write as if the judge were human, and make the judge laugh (if laughter will bring you closer to your goal).

Use italics. Occasionally boldface here and there (do not over-use). Occasionally call attention to an idea with exclamation marks! But, keep it simple! Aim every word at your goal. Focus your sentences. Write like you were "speaking" to an 8th grader.

You don't need a "novelist's eye" or a "bartender's ear", like Jimmy Buffett. You aren't telling a story or writing a song!
You're assembling the parts of a powerful engine.

Get Your Evidence Admitted!!!
- Don't end up like this poor fellow! Here he is in the heat of trial. He has documents he's been counting on to win his case. He's trying to present them to the court for the first time on the day of the trial. Big mistake!
- His documents need to be admitted as evidence. But, the other side objected to the documents. And, the judge sustained the objection based on the rules of evidence this fellow does not know. His documents are inadmissible! Documents he's been counting on. The keys to winning are not coming in! He will lose ... needlessly!
- He could have avoided last-minute objections if he'd done just a few things before trial ... things any average 8th grader can learn how to do. But, he thought he'd be tricky and surprise his opponents. So, he hid his "evidence", waiting till the last minute, intending to "spring it" on his opponent at trial, when he expected it would be too late for his opponent to come up with counter-evidence. Bad idea!
- Ambush rarely works at trial ... no matter what we've seen on TV or at the movies. If you aren't careful you'll find yourself in this poor fellow's shoes, trying to convince a judge to allow critical documents to be admitted as evidence at the last minute!
- You may have documents, photographs, audio recordings, video tape, or any number of things you may assume are certain to win your case for you ... but, if you don't get your evidence in before trial, you likely will not get them in at all. Then you will lose ... needlessly! It happens waaaay too often!
- Why not be fully prepared before trial? You only get one bite at the trial apple. Never wait till trial day to test evidence for admissibility. Never trust what a witness promises she will say at trial. Never [trust] that any document will be admitted ... even if it's sealed with royal wax imprinted by a king's ring and draped with lovely silk ribbons.
- If you assume you have "evidence" to spring on your opponent at trial, you are playing a dangerous game, risking everything for no real advantage whatever. If you wait to reveal "secret evidence" at trial, you're betting on the wrong horse! Why not authenticate your evidence before trial the way my official "How to Win in Court" step-by-step self-help course explains? Force the other side to admit the authenticity of your evidence before trial and prevent last minute surprises and disappointments.
- I frequently hear people proudly proclaim, "I already have all the evidence I need!" They plan to wait till trial to present a photograph, survey map, letter, memorandum, email, or some other "evidence" they have ... confident their "secret evidence" will give them the victory. The problem is that the "evidence" they plan to present at trial isn't "admissible". Evidence that isn't admissible isn't evidence!
- It's not difficult to authenticate evidence before trial. My course shows you how. I've won several cases using timely objections to prevent opponents from offering evidence they planned to offer at the last moment - evidence they could have easily authenticated before trial if they'd known what my course explains. I won. They lost.

How to Read Legal Statutes
- Know What the Law Actually Says! One of the biggest case-losing mistakes is mis-reading statutes (and other legal documents). If you don't know what the law actually says, you'll have a devilishly hard time getting a judge to agree with you!
- Understanding the "rules of statutory interpretation" is essential. Statutory language must be interpreted according to well-established "rules of statutory interpretation". The rules of statutory interpretation are vital to your case ... if you want to win! You need to know how courts interpret what Congress or your state legislature meant when they wrote the law!
- Too many otherwise clever people "assume" they know what a statute says, when the only opinion that counts is what the controlling appellate courts say the statute says. Appellate courts apply the rules of statutory interpretation. You must also! Learn these rules ... if you want to win!
- For example, the primary rule of statutory interpretation statutes is the "Plain Meaning Rule". This rule requires judges to give words in the law their "plain meaning" - what an ordinary reasonable person would believe a word means in the context of the statute where it's found. Judges should never be allowed to play games with lawmakers' words.
- If a reasonable person would read "bicycle" to mean a two-wheeled engine-less vehicle powered only by legs and feet, no judge should allow a party to stretch the meaning to include mopeds or motorcycles. Judges should be compelled to agree that a law says "plainly" what it means and mean nothing more. But, sometimes judges and lawyers will twist the words to reach an outcome they desire. YOU must know how to handle these situations and put a stop to it before it causes you to lose your case!
- Judges should always interpret words in the law according to the plain meaning rule ... but, sometimes the "plain meaning" to one person is not the "plain meaning" to another. Therefore, you must always do your legal research to determine how the controlling appellate courts read the the laws that affect your case. (How to do legal research is explained in my official 24-hour, step-by-step Jurisdictionary "How to Win in Court" course.
- So? What if the meaning is plain but the context is confusing? Other rules (taught in my course) will help.
- For example, according to the rule of "ejusdem generis" (simply Latin for "of the same type"), judges are required to interpret general terms at the end of specific lists as including only things of the same type as those specifically mentioned in the list. If a statute (or contract or any legal document of any kind) lists "oranges, grapefruit, lemons, and other fruit", the doctrine of ejusdem generis limits the phrase "other fruit" to mean other citrus fruit. Apples and pears are not included. The courts may assume lawmakers intended by "other fruit" all the many types of citrus: kumquats, limes, tangelos, etc. When lawmakers list items of similar kind, then say "and other" (or similar words), the doctrine of ejusdem generis limits the word "other" to include only items of the same type.

Offers of Proof in Court
- If you start to offer evidence and, before you can get it before the court, the other side objects and the judge sustains your opponent's objection, you must move the court to allow you to make clear on the record what your evidence was and what it would tend to prove! This is called making an offer of proof. Your opponent may do this, too, so read on to learn how it works ... or risk losing needlessly!
- Offers of proof may be made at a trial or at any hearing when your opposing party objects to your "evidence" and the judge sustains your opponent's objection. An offer of proof shows the court on the record:
    What the offered evidence is and
    What the evidence tends to prove
- Failure to get your evidence admitted will destroy your chances of winning! If you don't get your evidence admitted and don't make an offer of proof, you'll have nothing to appeal if you lose!
- You must keep the judge aware that you are prepared to reverse him on appeal, if he foolishly chooses to make appeal necessary by ruling against you!
- If you don't make an offer of proof, the record will not show what the evidence would have been, and there'll be nothing in the record for the appellate court to review! If the appellate court has no way of knowing what evidence the judge excluded, you cannot win on appeal. Appellate courts will not examine evidence that wasn't made part of the record at the trial level.
- You can't introduce evidence for the first time on appeal. Like the baseball umpire says, "Them's the rules!" When your attempt to get evidence into the record is prevented by the court's sustaining the other side's objection, do what my course teaches and tender an offer of proof.
- Show the court on the record:
    what the offered evidence is and
    what the offered evidence would tend to prove if admitted.
- It's not enough to show what your evidence is. You must also explain on the record what the evidence would tend to prove if admitted. In this way, you show the judge what the appellate court will review if the judge rules against you. And, if the judge knows your evidence should be admitted, he may decide to let it come in rather than risk being reversed on appeal.
- Get your evidence in ... or else you have no "evidence". If you can't get your evidence in, you lose! www.Jurisdictionary.com

How to Win the Game of Law
- There are two (2) kinds of law! If you want to win, you must know this. Too many good folks lose believing "the law" is on their side, but have no idea there are two (2) kinds of law! Even if one kind is on your side", you lose if you don't know both kinds and how to use them tactically!
- Most losers never know why they lost. They blame the judge. They blame the justice system. They blame the party on the other side. They seldom blame themselves for assuming they knew all they needed to win. They could have won, if they knew BOTH kinds of law and how to use them tactically!
- Take foreclosure, for example. You may give a lender all those required federal notices without receiving a single reply as required by law. You think your case is golden. The "law" is on your side ... but do you know the other kind of law and how to use it tactically?
- You may fight over taxes, breach of contract, lost wages, child custody, or something else, and you know "the law is on your side" ... but do you know the other kind of law and how to use it tactically?
- There are two (2) kinds of law! The first we call "substantive law". This determines the outcome of a case based on admissible evidence. The second kind we call "the rules of court". The rules determine what admissible evidence will be considered, who gets to talk, what issues will be heard, etc.
- The Rules of Court are, simply:
    The Rules of Procedure
    The Rules of Evidence
- And, they're easy to learn! Too many good people foolishly rush into court demanding the judge enforce substantive law in their favor without knowing the first thing about the rules of court or how to use them tactically). They're like someone sitting down to play a game of cards and being dealt a winning hand, without knowing the first thing about the rules of the game or how to use the rules tactically to win.
- It doesn't matter if you have the winning hand (i.e., substantive law) if you don't know the rules of court and how to use them tactically to win. Those who know how to use the rules tactically do win consistently! Those who don't lose ... consistently!
- Do you know how to draft proper pleadings, file effective motions, set hearings, make objections that stick, force the judge to do what's right, ... ? Do you know how to find your evidence, get your evidence admitted, keep your opponent's evidence excluded, cross-examine witnesses, ... ? Don't assume you'll win because "the law is on your side".
- Imagine three chess players:
    Player #1 doesn't yet know the rules
    Player #2 knows how to move the pieces but doesn't know how to move them tactically
    Player #3 has been playing chess 26 years and not only knows how the pieces move but also how to move them tactically to checkmate his opponents
- Which are you? Are you like Player #1 who doesn't yet know the rules? If so, you cannot hope to win! Are you like Player #2 who knows the rules but doesn't know how to use them tactically? Would you like to be like Player #3 with 26 years of case-winning experience? Your choice. Win ... or lose?
- Just having "the law on your side" is not enough! If you don't know how to use the rules tactically to win, you lose! The people you're up against probably know the rules, but even they may not have 26 years of case-winning experience to master the tactics that you can learn in a single weekend.
- Take advantage of my experience and learn how to use the rules tactically to win!

- Know When, Why, What, and How ... Slay your opponent with depositions! But! Like other tools in your "Lawyer's Little Red Toolbox", depositions are best used:
    At the right time,
    For the right reason,
    In the right way!
- A deposition is not a friendly coffee-klatch! It's not a "social event". Beware of sneaky lawyers, who'll try to turn the serious fact-finding business of deposition into a friendly "conversation". Do not allow it. When you see it coming, stop it immediately!
- Depositions are designed so you can go after facts, any facts, that might lead to the discovery of "admissible evidence". The rules are fairly loose. You can ask questions and get answers that you could not get later at trial, where the rules of evidence are more strictly enforced.
- But, some lawyers try to lull deposition witnesses into a false sense of security by being "friendly", asking questions about Aunt Suzy's recipe for butterscotch cookies or where Uncle Bill spent his vacation last year. This is done not to get at relevant facts but to trick the witness into "chatting", getting you and the witness off-guard so improper questions can be "popped" while you day-dream about how many quarters you put in the parking meter outside.
- "I understand you're quite a golfer, Mr. Witness." Red flag! The lawyer is setting things up to go beyond the scope of allowable questioning. The next thing you know, the witness will complain about the exorbitant country club dues he pays. Or, he may brag about his success on the links in Las Vegas last summer. Answers that may give your opponent power to defeat you!
- Don't be duped. Your opponent's lawyer doesn't care a thing about the witness' golfing. He's on a fishing expedition. He's after something else.
- Here's the rule that constrains depositions to facts (explained fully in the official Jurisdictionary course):
- The scope of discovery (requests for admissions, requests for production, interrogatories, depositions, and subpoenas) is limited by the rules to finding facts that are "reasonably calculated to lead to discovery of admissible evidence"!
- A golfer's handicap has nothing to do with his mortgage or child support or where he was last summer! "Objection! Goes beyond the scope of discovery!"
- If the other side continues to abuse the rule, you have the right to terminate the deposition and file a motion with the court for an order directing the lawyer to keep within the rule.
- On one occasion in my 26 years as a case-winning attorney, the lawyer on the other side was so devious and his insurance company client so evasive, I forced the judge to appoint a special master to sit in on the depositions and rule on my objections then-and-there. I got the evidence I wanted out of that evasive executive, and the insurance company settled with my client the day before trial!
- In another case the opposing lawyer was so ridiculous, I required the judge to order the lawyer to bring his client to the courtroom and answer questions under oath in front of the judge. That was the end of his sneaky tricks.
- There's much more you need to know to successfully use depositions in your case. It's all in the course. If you don't already have the official Jurisdictionary course, now's the time to ORDER and start learning before you end up kicking yourself!
- You will learn:
    When (waiting until you know more about the case),
    Why (getting witnesses under oath before trial),
    What (knowing which facts you need to get)
    How (handling the deposition with tact and tactics)
- Know how to use the rules! Far too many good people lose in court because they don't know how to control the lawyer on the other side or the black-robed judge on the bench. They may have the "law on their side", but they will lose if they don't know how to control a deposition (for example) or when to proceed to deposition or how to draft a proper motion or why it's important to make courtroom objections, etc.
- Is winning your case worth $249? My law school education cost me tens of thousands and three years of diligent study. The practical experience I gained defeating crooked lawyers and controlling corrupt judges for 25-years is priceless! My education and experience can be yours!

Finding Favor with Judges
- Getting your way the Right Way! Face it. Whether it's right or wrong, having a judge rule against you because he doesn't "like" you, isn't a good thing for you! Why not have the judge "on your side"? It helps ... a lot!
- But! There's only ONE WAY to get a judge's favor. Currying favor with flattery doesn't work. Judges get the "sweet treatment" every day. Trying to butter up a judge with flowery words will work against you. The judge won't respect you. The judge will wonder what you're hiding. "Flattery will get you everywhere" doesn't work in court. Few judges are fools. They see through attempts to fan their ego. They see it as dishonesty.
- Challenging the judge's "oath of office" (as some claim is a great idea) won't win points, either. It's far more likely to get you a hard bunk in a steel and concrete room for a few days. It certainly won't make things easier for you! Nor will arguing over flag etiquette, as many insist is a valid challenge to court jurisdiction. Flags do not create jurisdiction in a court any more than painting my car red makes it a fire-engine! Court power is conferred by law that has nothing to do with the courtroom flag ... fringe or no fringe!
- So, what works? Simple. Know what you're doing and do it well! Order the 24-hour Jurisdictionary step-by-step self-help course and learn how other pro se litigants are earning judges' respect and winning!
- Don't waste the court's time. Obey the rules:
    Rules of Procedure
    Rules of Evidence.
- Imagine sitting on a courtroom bench 10 or 20 years. You've seen it all. You have a full schedule every day. Already this morning you sat through a bitter divorce where neither parent wanted the children. After that you listened to business partners arguing over a dispute they could have avoided by just talking to each other like grown men. On and on for years and years, trying to resolve disputes peacefully according to law and the rules.
- One side always claiming injury. The other side always whining they aren't responsible. Real people with real problems you must endure day-in and day-out. Only one side is right. The other side is lying right there in front of you and trying to get away with it!
- You must sort out their differences and try to reach a decision that's fair and just in the eyes of God. Then, just after lunch when you wish to take a nap, in struts a pro se litigant with no idea what the rules are or how to use them! You listen patiently as they rant on about how the bank that's suing them didn't "loan any money". Or, they insist they aren't who they are because their NAME IS IN ALL CAPITAL LETTERS ON THE COURT PAPERS. Or, they insist you can't call them by name because they "copyrighted" their name so no one else can use it.
- The next case coming up involves a young boy whose mother abandoned him, or a little girl with ugly burn scars on her once-pretty face because of an uncle who thinks it's fun to put out cigars on her cheeks! And here is a pro se litigant ranting about stuff he or she doesn't remotely understand and has made no genuine effort to learn.
- Want to find favor with judges? Easy! Learn how to work within the system, instead of trying to make end-runs around the rules with silly games that the judges are quite familiar with already. Learn how to state your position clearly in writing using properly-drafted pleadings, motions, and memoranda.
- Learn why, how, and when to object in court properly with solid grounds for objections the court cannot ignore. Learn how to examine your own witnesses, using direct examination when you cannot use leading questions. Learn how to cross-examine your opponent's witnesses in a way that gets answers you need, instead of alienating witnesses with leading questions that pry unnecessarily.
- Show the court that you made an effort to learn how to use the rules correctly, instead of wasting everyone's time and patience! Learn how to use the rules and earn the judge's respect! www.Jurisdictionary.com

Remove the Blindfold!!! Your #1 Right!
- We all talk about our "rights". Many complain how our "rights" are being taken away. A few are ready to fight-and-die to protect our "rights". But few know what is their #1 Right!
- In fact, the main reason we're losing so many of our rights these days is precisely because so few know their #1 Right! That's right! (No pun intended.) Ask yourself this, "What good are "rights" that can't be enforced?"
- Your #1 Right is the right to know how to enforce your rights! Yet, government isn't telling you! Your tax-supported schools aren't teaching your children. Lawyers certainly aren't leaking their money-making secrets to the public.
- An old adage says, "Ignorance of the law is no excuse," yet neither government nor the legal profession has at any time in the history of the world made any genuine effort to teach the public how justice is secured in courts. Nothing about the rules of evidence. Nothing about the rules of procedure. Nothing about how to use the rules to get Justice! Nothing!
- Without your #1 Right (or tens of thousands of dollars to pay lawyers to secure your rights for you) what good are government's empty promises? Indeed, if you don't know how to enforce your rights, do you really have any? Do you really? Think carefully! Rights without knowledge to enforce them are just empty promises, like carrots on a stick to get us to work hard and keep the economy going for the well-to-do who can afford lawyers to fight for them!
- You and your children have been lied to long enough! The legal profession cannot hide your #1 Right any longer! Your blindfold is coming off! Your #1 Right is easy-to-learn! Your #1 Right is the right to know how to enforce your rights! It's easy to learn how to enforce your rights in court ... without a lawyer!
- You can learn in a single weekend what it takes to obtain court orders that command sheriffs and federal marshals to protect and enforce your rights! Read Luke 11:52 in your Bible to discover how long the wool has been pulled over the public's eyes by lawyers who've been running the world far too long by purposely keeping you in the dark so lawyers can get rich at your expense!

Post by: Luck on January 02, 2013, 11:50:59 am
You CAN Control Judges!

You dare not hope to win until you learn what this Tips & Tactics newsletter teaches about controlling trial level judges.

You must learn how to force the judge to see that the appellate courts that can reverse his decisions will reverse his decisions on appeal if he doesn't rule in your favor. Otherwise, the judge will rule as he pleases, confident you don't know how to get his decisions reversed on appeal.

Unless you follow the step-by-step Jurisdictionary method and force the judge to see he will be reversed on appeal if he doesn't rule in your favor, justice will be whatever the judge wants it to be. Your objective is always to: force the judge to see that the appellate courts that can reverse his decisions will reverse his decisions on appeal if he doesn't rule in your favor.

Losers miss this point ... and lose! Trial judges are not legal authority! Appellate courts are! The U.S. Constitution is not controlling law. What appellate courts say the U.S. Constitution means is controlling law. Statutes are not controlling law. What appellate courts say statutes mean is controlling law. Only controlling law controls judges.

Appellate court opinions are the legal authority that controls trial level judges! You may disagree with this. Many do and lose needlessly. I want you to win, but truth is unaffected by what you believe. Only truth is true. Nothing else is. Appellate court opinons are controlling law in this nation and every nation that follows our English system of justice.

Trial judges fear being reversed on appeal. That's what keeps them straight. That's why it's essential to learn how to force the judge in your case to see that the appellate courts that can reverse his decisions will reverse his decisions on appeal if he doesn't rule in your favor. No trial judge wants an appellate court to publish an official written opinion telling the world he was wrong!

Knowing how to control judges is the secret to winning and is explained step-by-step in my popular 24-hour self-help Jurisdictionary course. What you believe is controlling law means nothing. Don't believe me? Ok. Tell a judge your personal opinions about the law and how he should apply it and rule in your favor. See how far it gets you!

The only opinions that count in court are the published opinions of appellate court justices who stand in judgment of trial level judges and have power to reverse lower court decisions. This nation (and all others that follow our English justice system) is run by lawyers who sit as justices on appellate courts! The buck stops in court, not at the Whitehouse, Congress, or state legislature. If you believe otherwise, you are mistaken.

Your legal opinions (no matter how clever or persuasive and no matter how many tens of thousands agree with you in emails or on the internet) count for nothing in court. Controlling judges is what wins lawsuits, and judges are controlled only by appellate court opinions!

Use Courts to Stop Major Corruption

Sure, we have problems. BIG PROBLEMS. It's impossible not to see how our American Way of Life is threatened with New Speak, New Thought, and the threat of a New World Order. Traditional American values of self-reliance, hard work, honesty in business, and genuine patriotism that works to promote liberty by working for justice are still the only protection we have for ourselves and our children. Individual rights will continue to disappear ... if we do nothing. That is, ONLY IF WE DO NOTHING.

You don't need more paranoid warnings or insane legal theories that don't work! You need to learn how to FIX what's wrong. You need to learn how to FORCE your leaders to do what's right. You need to learn how to RESTORE the American Dream for yourself, your children, and future generations. There is hope for those willing to FIGHT SMART!

Complaining about a fox in the henhouse doesn't do a thing for the poor defenseless chickens. Yet, day-after-day I receive dozens of emails from well-meaning people who think pointing their fingers at the problems and urging their friends to recognize the problems will somehow magically make the problems go away. My in-box is flooded every day (and more of late) by folks I call pseudo patriots who insist the end is near. They may be well-meaning, and the points they make are often valid, but they aren't offering any practical solutions!

If you want the foxes out of the henhouse, and voting at the polls now-and-then doesn't seem to be having much effect, then it's time to start putting ink on paper! Ooops! Did you expect me to suggest violence? Not a chance. That's not what America is all about. We are a people (or, at least, we once were) dedicated to order, due process, and a peaceful resolution to our difficulties. That means ink on paper!

Complaining gets us nowhere, unless we complain with a "Complaint" filed at the local courthouse - 'cause that does wonders when it's done properly. If you don't believe me, look at the world around you and see for yourself how much of what we have today (good and bad) resulted from the decisions of courts. The pseudo patriots have only bad news and wacky ideas about how to fix our problems ... ideas that are putting quite a few people behind bars, I might add.

I have good news! We live in an age of opportunity such as the world has never seen before. When I entered the practice of law nearly a quarter-century ago, we didn't have computers to do on-line legal research. If we had a legal problem, there was only one solution: hire a lawyer. And, if you are like I was 30 years ago, you don't have tens of thousands of dollars to pay some lawyer who may end up dropping the ball or screwing your life up because of his or her stupid incompetence, laziness, or fear of the judge. Back then, it was either pay through the nose ... or lose! That was before Jurisdictionary.

Our very way of life is on trial. If "We the People" do not learn how to put ink on paper and take advantage of the power of our courts, we may soon be looking back at the "good old days" and wishing we'd done what we could while there was time to do it right.

Meanwhile, instead of encouraging you to learn the rules of court and how to use them to Restore the Republic the "right way" (abiding by the principles of our democratic republic) the pseudo patriots are leading many of you down a path to certain destruction. They are so busy finding fault while teaching their idiotic ideas about how greedy people can escape justice by claiming nonsense defenses, that good people like you are confused about where to turn for the "right way" to get justice.

We are a nation of laws! True patriots work with wisdom to control corrupt judges and legislators to change bad laws, instead of trying to find novel ways to get around the law for their own advantage. True patriots seek justice according to the rules!

Today's pseudo patriots have lost their way. Don't let them turn you from the "right way" with their proclamations of doom or confuse you into trying to win in court by saying you are not WHO YOU ARE if your name is in all capital letters, or any of the similar nonsense they sell.

We can turn this nation around if we work together! We can force judges to follow the rules. We can turn crooked lawyers out-on-their-ear! We can overcome even the most powerful opponent the "right way", peaceably, according to law and order - instead of being "outlaws" trying to wiggle out of our troubles with stupid tricks. The pseudo patriots are so obsessed with the admittedly serious problems we face at this hour they do not see that the solution is already in our own hands: The Law!

If it weren't so easy to learn the official rules there'd be no hope for us. But, it IS EASY to learn the rules and how to use them to force people in powerful positions to do what's right! We can put the law to work the "right way", using the "official rules" that overcome corrupt judges and defeat crooked lawyers and make justice possible for anyone of average intelligence willing to make an effort to learn how the legal game is played to win!

We must all stop staring at the darkness and lift the lamp of liberty and justice while there is yet time! Pseudo patriots find fault with America and her system of law and order, but that's all they do. The only answer pseudo patriots offer is to "spread the word", as if telling everyone what's wrong will magically make things right once again! It is madness! They say they are "patriots", but they don't tell you how to save your nation. They're too busy telling you what's wrong, who's at fault, and how ugly things will be when their terrible predictions come true. Their message is all negative! And, when they do offer their theories about what it takes to get justice, their theories are nothing short of lunacy!
    Fringe on the courtroom flag
    Name in all caps isn't them
    Copyrighting their own name
    Even disavowing their citizenship!
The list is nearly endless ... and totally insane!

The power to control corrupt government officials, crooked banks, and anyone else who violates the law contrary to our American Principles IS IN THE COURTS! This is YOUR POWER! Learn how to use it! Order my "How to Win in Court" self-help for non-lawyers ... step-by-step!

Use Judicial Notice Motions!

Why bother struggling to prove obvious facts? Every court (state or federal) provides a method for getting around the necessity of proving obvious facts. This method is called "Judicial Notice". The process is covered completely in my affordable step-by-step 24-hour Jurisdictionary self-help course, but I'll tell you a little bit in this Tips & Tactics! The process is simple. You should always use it when you can!

You can make opponents' legal bullets bounce off your chest once the court takes judicial notice of an obvious fact, because the court's order settles the issue ... PERIOD! Obvious facts don't have to be "proven", if you can get the court to enter an order taking judicial notice of them.

You can move the court to enter an order taking judicial notice in writing or you can move the court by voice in the courtrooom. Vocal motions are called ore tenus motions.

Written motions are always best (because they become part of the written record of the case without paying a court reporter to provide a transcript) but if you're caught at a hearing and need to do so, make an ore tenus motion (i.e., a spoken motion) and be prepared to back it up by showing that the fact you want noticed is "obvious".

I'll explain by telling a true story, but to learn the rest of the story you'll need to order my affordable step-by-step 24-hour Jurisdictionary self-help course!

If was nearly 26 years ago when I was just beginning my career as a licensed attorney. My client was suing her former landlord to recover her security deposit. The mean old landlord claimed she damaged his property by cutting down a tree in the backyard.

The tree was a Brazilian Pepper tree, a nuisance plant here in Florida. The tree is related to poison ivy, poison oak, poison sumac. It's really more of a bush than a tree, though they grow quite large here in the Sunshine State. The University of Florida reports some people express respiratory problems associated with the bloom period of the tree, while others suffer from dermatitis after contact. The State of Florida has even developed a detailed management plan for the pest plant, including creation of a Brazilian Pepper Task Force!

So, here I was arguing for my client at a hearing to get her deposit back from her stupid, greedy landlord looking to make a fast buck by playing on the ignorance of others.

Of course I had a court reporter with me, taking down every word said by me, my client, the landlord, and the judge. That's why I won more often than others. Making a record is essential to victory (even though it does cost a bit to pay the court reporter to attend).

My client and I came to the hearing with photographs of the inside of the house she'd been renting to show how she had re-painted, cleaned the oven, scrubbed the floors, and left the place immaculate. That's what we thought the landlord's defense was: that she'd left the place a mess. When I saw her photographs (and the fact that her friend had taken the pictures, a friend we brought with us to testify to the accuracy of the pictures, if necessary) it seemed obvious to me we would win hands down.

Then the landlord starts whining about his lovely tree in the backyard and how my client had so rudely and without his permission cut it to the ground and dragged the branches out to the street for the city trash collectors to take them away.

By some stroke of God's Grace I'd recently read of the Brazilian Pepper and health problems it was causing, so I simply said, "Your honor, I move the court for an order taking judicial notice that the Brazilian Pepper has been adjudged a nuisance plant in Florida and therefore has no commercial value to justify the landlord's witholding my client's security deposit."

What happened next was wonderful. The judge smiled, evidently pleased at the opportunity I presented for him to tell us what he knew of this pesky bush. He leaned back in his giant leather-backed chair and actually put his hands behind his head as if he were going to tell a long story to his grandchildren. And, what a story it was. He went on for at least 10 minutes about the problems he and his family had and the concern officials have with the invasion of this plant from Argentina where it was seen as an attractive ornamental. He talked about rashes on his own hands received from whacking away at the menace in his own backyard. Then, suddenly, he leaned forward in his chair, turned toward the landlord with a menacing leer and pronounced, "Motion granted. Judgment for the plaintiff."

So, my client got her deposit money, and I learned a valuable lesson you would do well to learn for yourself. If a fact is commonly known, you can move the court to enter an order taking judicial notice of the fact - and then you need not struggle to prove the fact. It is a fact for all purposes throughout the remainder of the case!

Of course, like all other motions, the best way to make them is to write them on paper, file the original with the clerk, serve a copy on the opposing party, prepare a proposed order granting your motion, and set a hearing to argue your motion and get your proposed order signed.

Rules of Court and Law of the Case

Whether you're being sued or suing someone else, you must understand these two simple things - or risk losing! Winning is very simple! Every lawsuit turns on these two (2) simple things:
#1 ... the law of the case and
#2 ... the rules of court (evidence and procedure)
That's all there is to this game we call court!

If you've been duped by amateurs into seeing lawsuits any other way, or if you're so scared and confused it's all a muddy puddle of mind-boggling complications, rejoice! Winning is EASY once you see this simple truth! Don't let anyone intimidate you into thinking this is too complicated for average folks to grasp nor let them deceive you into thinking lawyers are smarter than the rest of the human race ... 'cause it ain't so! Anyone can learn what it takes to win! Absolutely anyone!

You simply need a clear view of the field of play, the object of the game, and the rules that control the players ... including judges and lawyers! You'll learn all this and more with my affordable, official step-by-step Jurisdictionary "How to Win in Court" self-help course.

#1 - THE LAW OF THE CASE
The law of the case is usually very simple! No matter what kind of case yours is, if you'll trust me for just a moment (and check me on this) you'll find that every lawsuit turns on what we lawyers call "the law of the case". Every last one of them. Every single one!

I've been an attorney since 1986. (Please don't hold that against me.) These past years I've dedicated to helping people just like you to pierce the mystery my profession has woven to hide the simple truths and tactics I teach in my affordable 24-hour course. My course unveils the amazing simplicity my profession doesn't want you to know so you can win in court ... without a lawyer! It's really simple once you see what I teach ... as tens of thousands have already learned!

For example, every foreclosure case turns (win or lose) on a very few legal principles that control the outcome of foreclosure - the rights of the lender versus the rights of the borrower. We attorneys call these principles "the law of the case" of foreclosure. It doesn't matter how big the bank or lender is. It doesn't matter how little the borrower is. The law of the case is the law of the case PERIOD! The law of the case controls the outcome for those who know how to use the rules of court (evidence and procedure) to prove what the law requires.

Automobile negligence, contract disputes, malpractice, slander, false imprisonment ... whatever a case is about, you'll find "the law of the case" is simple and usually easy to find. My course even shows you how to use online legal research to find the law of your case!

You don't need to know every law there is to win a simple contract dispute. The law of the case in a contract dispute is usually no more than a few appellate court opinions and perhaps a statute or two at most. Once you know how to find and can cite the official authorities that state the law of the case of contracts, you're halfway home!

The rest of the business of winning is simply using the rules to (1) allege what the law of the case requires, and (2) prove what you've alleged ... whether you're a plaintiff bringing the case or a defendant trying to avoid the line of fire!

#2 - THE RULES OF EVIDENCE AND PROCEDURE
Now assume you've found the law of the case that fits the facts of your lawsuit. You have the official citations that command victory for you IF you allege and prove what the law of the case requires. This is where the rules of evidence and procedure come into play ... and these are incredibly easy to learn!

Let's say plaintiff is coming after you to foreclose on your home. The first thing you do is find the law of the case that will control the outcome in your state. You now know what must be alleged by the plaintiff and proven by the plaintiff in order for the plaintiff to win. You also now know what you must allege in affirmative defenses and what you need to do with discovery and motions to prove the plaintiff cannot meet the burden of the law.

This stuff is really easy once you see how the separate parts fit together! You have tremendous power ... once you know how the game is played to win! Since 1997, when we started Jurisdictionary on the web, I've found the most debilitating factor that infects good people with hopelessness is fear that comes solely from lack of knowing how the game of litigation is played to win! Not knowing creates fear. Knowledge displaces fear with the confidence you need to overcome your opponent!

Take any apparently complicated thing apart to examine its component parts and you quickly see how they fit together. When you first begin, it seems impossible. But! If someone shows you how each separate part works with each of the other parts, even the most complicated things are suddenly easy-to-understand. The mystery my profession has woven disappears!

#1 - All lawsuits turn on the law of the case.
#2 - All lawsuits are won (or lost) by clever (or clumsy) use of the rules of court to cite the law of the case and prove the facts.
That's all there is to lawsuits - every one of them!

Sadly, too many good people never discover the power to win that's theirs. Therefore, evil people who know how to find the law of the case and use the rules of court take advantage of them!

Jurisdictionary wants to turn the tables on crooked lawyers and biased judges and protect the "little guys and gals" that are being taken advantage of simply because no one before has ever offered a course like my "How to Win in Court" self-help course. No one ever made it this easy-to-understand! www.Jurisdictionary.com

Beware of Legal Myths ... They're DANGEROUS!

Beware of Legal Mythology! Many today are angry at our justice system. Many have good cause to be angry! Some, however, are too angry! Their anger will hurt you! They are blinded by their anger! You'll recognize them by the anger. They are not your friend! Their "legal theories" fail. They are blinded by rage. Believe them at your peril.

#1 An angry fellow called to scream obscenities at me because I refused to agree with him that our birth certificates are some kind of "contract". The fundamental truth about contracts is that they cannot bind anyone who doesn't understand the agreement. Besides, we certainly didn't sign the thing! We can't be bound by a contract we don't understand and didn't sign. Yet, this man screamed at me for refusing to help him fight his dragons!

#2 Another angry person called insisting she had "copyrighted" her name so the courts couldn't use her name on official papers. To think one can prevent others from using one's name by "copyrighting" it is utter nonsense. Anger twists the mind in strange ways!

#3 Some are convinced our courts are "admiralty courts" and cannot rule in common law or statute, all because there is a yellow fringe on the courtroom flag. This lie has been promoted for years by angry people that don't know (or don't want to make any effort to know) the truth.

#4 Many have made a "religion" out of believing such lies. Some claim to be "patriots", yet do all they can to evade the Rule of Law and refuse to do anything toward learning the principles of due process so many gave their lives to protect in past and present wars!

#5 Thousands share emails and hover around the radio to hear commentators tell them how horrible things are and how much worse they soon will be, yet only a handful talk about how to make things better by exercising your "law power" in court!

I know people are hurting. We've helped tens of thousands of hurting people to get justice in the courts since 1997 when we launched Jurisdictionary on the web. Do you want to know how to get justice in our courts and honor the sacrifices of millions who died so you would have the "law power" you need to overcome corruption? Are you ready to begin? www.Jurisdictionary.com

Liberty, Justice, & The Rule of Law

I have a T-shirt that says "Freedom is not Free!" Patrick Henry said, "Give me Liberty or give me death!" Liberty is what we seek.
    Liberty to own a home.
    Liberty to run a business.
    Liberty to enjoy life.
    Liberty to walk the streets unharmed by hoodlums and assassins.
    Liberty to enjoy our God-given rights!

But, there's a crack in the Liberty Bell to warn us! The physical crack is real. We've seen the Bell and its physical crack up close. The Bell hangs in a Philadelphia museum. From a window near the Bell you see Independence Hall across the lawn, where the Declaration of Independence was signed, proclaiming a promise as yet not quite filled. The promise was "Justice for ALL". The crack in the Bell symbolizes our failure to secure Justice for ALL.

Too long "We the People" have let others run the "justice business" and, as a consequence, have failed to secure for ourselves and our posterity the blessings of liberty too many have died for ... far too many! Liberty without Justice is impossible! War and public protests alone can never secure Justice for ALL.

We the People must learn how Justice works and take the "justice business" away from the lawyers once and for all! We CAN ! The People are missing their opportunity to control my profession by learning the lawyer game and what it takes to win!

All those wonderful, brave, dedicated boys and girls putting their lives in danger and dying for the cause of Liberty ... while We the People allow Justice to be stolen from us by a profession that has made it a private business with closely-held trade secrets they refuse to share with the public!

Justice is not a business! Justice is a sacred right! Justice should be treated as a holy enterprise where truth alone is sought and the Rule of Law is secured for each and every one of us through strict enforcement of due process rules blind to money, blind to power, blind to political influence, and resistant to corruption of any kind!

Let THIS be the generation that secures Justice for ALL!
Let THIS be the generation that learns the rules of Justice.
Let THIS be the generation that teaches its children how to use the tools and processes that make Justice possible!
Let THIS be the generation that demands that Justice and its rules be taught to our children in our tax-supported schools!
Let THIS be the generation future leaders look back to and praise for giving the world Justice for ALL!
Let THIS be the generation that honors those who gave their lives for Liberty by learning how to secure the Justice that makes Liberty possible.

Know How to Control Judges!
How to Control the Judge!
Q. Can you win without controlling the judge?
A. You cannot! Doubt me at your peril!

I fought and won in court for more than a quarter-century by applying this simple secret: Control the judge or lose! There's no other way! How's it done? What's the big secret? Actually, it's no secret at all. It's very simple, really! So simple, in fact, it's uncanny! Laws, rules, testimony, and evidence count for nothing if you can't control the judge!

I received my law degree from an excellent law school in 1985, but law schools don't teach this simple secret to winning in court! Surprise you? It surprises me, too! I faithfully attended 3 years of classes and read every page of a stack of lawbooks 20-feet high, but we were never told this simple secret of: How to Win in Court.

You must control the judge! This is your #1 job... if you want to win! And, there's only ONE WAY to control the judge. Threaten appeal!

Use empty threats, quote internet legal mythology, demand to see his oath of office, challenge jurisdiction based on the color of the fringe on the courtroom flag, and you'll get absolutely nowhere!

The process is simple, and YOU can do it: Cite controlling appellate court opinions that agree with you and what you want the judge to do ... and threaten appeal if the judge doesn't agree with the appellate court opinions!

If you have a lawyer, he may be unwilling to stand up to the judge. He may be afraid to do it. But, if you want to win, someone must threaten the judge with appeal!

It's stupid to march into court demanding one's "Constitutional Rights", expecting the judge to admit your evidence, to deny evidence and tricks presented by the other side, and award judgment in your favor. It just doesn't work that way!

The key to winning in court is making a winning record for appeal (in case the judge rules against you) at all times by citing controlling appellate court opinions that agree with you and what you want the judge to do. You must make it clear to the judge that you will win on appeal if the judge chooses to rule against you!

It all comes down to this: "Judges fear being reversed on appeal." Too simple? I thought so, too ... at first.

It took a couple of years of law practice before I saw the light. Law school led me to believe judges were a higher life-form that only did right and always followed the law. Some judges I dealt with this past quarter-century were good people who tried their best. Others were arrogant egotists who thought the courtroom belonged to them instead of to the People and the courageous young men and women who gave their all so we could demand justice from such tyrants and get it!

Learn how to control judges so YOU can win! www.Jurisdictionary.com

What You Must Do To Win!
The following is a list of things YOU must do to win. All of these (and many more) are covered in the official 24-hour step-by-step Jurisdictionary "How to Win in Court" lawsuit self-help course:
    Draft proper pleadings with all fact elements
    Obtain all necessary evidence before trial
    Make effective oral motions
    Draft effective written motions
    Use online legal research
    Draft compelling memoranda
    Insure a written record of all proceedings
    Object promptly to all errors of opponent
    Object promptly to all errors of judge
    Renew objections to all un-cured errors of judge
    Keep your opponent's evidence out
    Get your evidence in
    Stop opponent from proposing false orders
    Offer to draft all orders
    Stop opponent's lawyer from testifying
    ... and more ... !
If you don't know how to do these simple tasks, you run the risk of losing.

Lawsuits are an axe fight. This course is your axe. Jurisdictionary has helped tens of thousands get justice in court since 1997 when the website was first launched. Now, learning what you must do to win is up to you! Many years ago I saw a bumper sticker saying, "If you want Peace, work for Justice!" Being angry doesn't help you or anyone else! Believing internet legal myths is stupid. The only thing that can help you is to learn and teach others how to use the official rules of due process that make Justice possible.

Learn the rules that control the courts, rules that stop corruption, rules that require judges to grant justice, rules that were paid for by far too much innocent blood already. Someone once said, "The truth will set you free!" If YOU believe that, learn the truth about Justice! Don't let anyone scare you into thinking it's too complicated for you to understand or deceive you into thinking lawyers are smarter than the rest of the human race ... 'cause it ain't so! Anyone can learn what it takes to win! Anyone means YOU!

Start with a clear view of the field of play, the object of the game, and the rules that control the players ... including the judges and lawyers! It's simple with the "How to Win in Court" lawsuit self-help course ... as many thousands have already learned!

Jurisdictionary wants to turn the tables on crooked lawyers and biased judges to protect the "little guys and gals" being taken advantage of because no one ever came out with a course like this before. No one ever cared enough to tell you the truth. No one ever made it this easy-to-understand! You will know what you must do to win in court!

Due Process and Constitutional Rights - How Constitutional Rights Are Enforced

Click HERE or on the chart image to view full-size flowchart how you can enforce your Constitutional right to "redress grievances" ... i.e., how your Constitutional Power works! No charge! This chart will help you win in court! It's simple enough, but critically important to study and understand.

Regrettably, many today are angry at the very system of Law & Order that is the only power they have to protect themselves from villainy at the hands of their fellow man and from the tyranny of despotic political power. This chart shows that YOU HAVE POWER!

Be careful whom you trust to teach you the law. There is a "movement" in our nation that has lost faith in America and our system of Law & Order. The leaders of this "movement" see only evil and none of the good. You can detect them by their anger and the "nifty tricks" they promise will win your way in court by "getting around" the rules. Why not learn the rules instead of rushing to court with silver-bullet promises and losing?

The Rules Rule! Those who refuse to learn the rules and uphold our American principles of Law & Order are no "patriots". Nor are they people you can trust to advise you how to get justice in our courts. The Constitution so many claim to believe in is itself a set of "rules". Without rules we are a lawless nation headed for disaster. Only when the People learn the rules can we hope to control those who use the rules to control us!

Most of you have taken a sacred oath before Almighty God to uphold the Constitution of the United States, yet most of you have no idea how to enforce the rights our Constitution guarantees!

There are far more "rights" guaranteed by our statutory and common law than the relatively few enumerated in our Constitution. Do you really know what "common law" is? Do you know how to "interpret" statutes correctly?

Are you facing one of these battles?
    Foreclosure
    Custody
    Child Support
    Taxation Issues
    Property Rights
    Criminal Charges
    Contract Disputes
    Slander
    Landlord-Tenant Problems Etcetera

Short of grabbing your squirrel gun and a box of ammo, the only way you can get your "redress of grievances" is through using our court system wisely. But! Notice the word, "wisely". So, click HERE and study the flowchart now.

Many people "assume" they know what it takes to win in court. Most of them lose! They think, "The facts and law are on my side. I should win!"

That's not how our courts work! Facts and Law are not enough! You must PROVE your case using the Rules.

Some people just get angry ... and lose! Others think they can use one of the internet's legal mythology silver bullets ... and lose!

A fact may be certain, yet not be "admissible evidence"! Those who march into court with their "facts", without knowing how to get those facts into the court's record as "admissible evidence" lose! Only "admissible evidence" wins in court. Learn how to get your evidence admitted at How to Win in Court

Help for Pro Se Litigants

Know What the Law Says! Too many pro se litigants mis-read the law. How can you hope to win If you don't know what the law "says". Reading law can be confusing, especially statutes and code.

Judges rely on how appellate courts interpret what lawmakers meant when they wrote the law. You dare not "assume" you are reading the law correctly. Learn how to read the law.

The only interpretation that can control the judge in your case is the interpretation given by the appellate courts. Do you know how to read appellate cases correctly? Learn how to read the law at How to Win in Court

Here's a link for an important law fact: http://www.constitution.org/uslaw/16amjur2nd.htm
This appears to be actual U.S. law, which informs public servants of their duty to arrest any other public servant who commits an unlawful act, such as violating anyone's rights.

Legal responsibility to violations against corrupt legislators.

    Posted by Brian M Cox on December 7, 2011 at 1:34am in LEGISLATION & POLITICS

Unconstitutional Official Acts

16 Am Jur 2d, Sec 177 late 2d, Sec 256:

The general misconception is that any statute passed by legislators bearing the appearance of law constitutes the law of the land. The U.S. Constitution is the supreme law of the land, and any statute, to be valid, must be In agreement. It is impossible for both the Constitution and a law violating it to be valid; one must prevail. This is succinctly stated as follows:

The General rule is that an unconstitutional statute, though having the form and name of law is in reality no law, but is wholly void, and ineffective for any purpose; since unconstitutionality dates from the time of it's enactment and not merely from the date of the decision so branding it. An unconstitutional law, in legal contemplation, is as inoperative as if it had never been passed. Such a statute leaves the question that it purports to settle just as it would be had the statute not been enacted.

Since an unconstitutional law is void, the general principles follow that it imposes no duties, confers no rights, creates no office, bestows no power or authority on anyone, affords no protection, and justifies no acts performed under it.....

A void act cannot be legally consistent with a valid one. An unconstitutional law cannot operate to supersede any existing valid law. Indeed, insofar as a statute runs counter to the fundamental law of the lend, it is superseded thereby.

No one Is bound to obey an unconstitutional law and no courts are bound to enforce it.

Jon Roland:

Strictly speaking, an unconstitutional statute is not a "law", and should not be called a "law", even if it is sustained by a court, for a finding that a statute or other official act is constitutional does not make it so, or confer any authority to anyone to enforce it.

All citizens and legal residents of the United States, by their presence on the territory of the United States, are subject to the militia duty, the duty of the social compact that creates the society, which requires that each, alone and in concert with others, not only obey the Constitution and constitutional official acts, but help enforce them, if necessary, at the risk of one's life.

Any unconstitutional act of an official will at least be a violation of the oath of that official to execute the duties of his office, and therefore grounds for his removal from office. No official immunity or privileges of rank or position survive the commission of unlawful acts. If it violates the rights of individuals, it is also likely to be a crime, and the militia duty obligates anyone aware of such a violation to investigate it, gather evidence for a prosecution, make an arrest, and if necessary, seek an indictment from a grand jury, and if one is obtained, prosecute the offender in a court of law.

My question is does this still apply today and if so how do we unify to make this a reality?

Permalink Reply by Brian M Cox on December 7, 2011 at 3:28am

    I am pasting my response from the other discussion thread here because of its relevance.

    I stumbled upon this information while investigating S 1867 and it's sister bill passed by the House HR 1540 in May. I can think of 322 members of Congress and 93 Senators that should be arrested for their violation of their oath of office.

    I have been scampering like mad to get this information into social groups online who are active in activism, social networking, and the information war. I have been pleading my case to these people for quite some time that these groups need to accept the values of our Constitutional Militia and fellow Patriots.

    It does absolutely nothing to sit around online all day sharing links and or protesting without a legal approach and list of demands. We have the evidence to take legal action and if we don't, the premise of divide and conquer will prevail as the ultimate distraction to keep us unaware of how to remove these criminals from office, including at the executive level.

    This information needs to be examined by every Constitutional Militia in our Republic. How do we as Patriots put this into motion? I believe that an exorcise of our obligation is absolutely paramount to the survival of this once great nation. If we can present this case unto independent media as well as the masses, we may very well obtain the support of people as a whole to put this into action.

    I have been screaming online to the members of various groups that we must unite as a people to do this. It is disheartening to see so many who want change but can't even open their minds to the reality we face. The usurpation of our Government is the reality at hand. They have desecrated Our Republic and these so called elected officials are guilty of treason!

    Why is it that so many people are screaming and ranting about themselves being the 99% when none of them understand they will actually achieve nothing? Protesting Wall Street is an act in vein when insider trading is rampant in Congress. You can't get corruption out of politics when technocrats of the banking elite have the monopoly over the system.

    There is only one solution and granted that solution will lead to war. However, at least it would then become a war against foreign forces controlled by the Oligarchy itself and not with our own brothers and sisters, sons and daughters, mothers and fathers.

    We have to cut the strings of the puppet masters. The puppets need to be "confiscated" and convicted for their crimes. It is time to find out who are allies are within Government and within the system itself. If we can do that, we can change the course of history. But we don't have much time.

    God help us all, and God Save the Republic!

Every case is won or lost on only two (2) things!
    The Admissible Evidence and
    The Law of the Case
You don't need to know "every law" ever written!
You just need to know "the law of the case" ... your case!

Consider the fellow piling things in the balance shown here. Imagine he is "building his case". He doesn't have a great number of things on his side. He has a wee bit more than the other side, and that's all it takes to win!
    Admissible Evidence
    The Law of the Case

You may ask, "How can a pro se litigant win against someone with a lawyer?"
The answer is simple!
You don't need to know everything lawyers know!
You only need to know:
    The law of your case and
    How to use the rules to force the court to admit your evidence and enter the orders you seek.

The only "law" you need to know is the law that affects your case!
The law of the case is almost always extremely simple and straightforward. You don't need to know everything we lawyers were taught in law school.

It sounds simple because IT IS SIMPLE!
What I tell you IS ABSOLUTELY TRUE!
The law of your case can be understood in a single afternoon of online legal research.

Once you know what the law of your case is, the rest is simply convincing the court that:
    The law of the case is what you say it is, and
    You have more admissible evidence of the facts that "fit" the law.

Your goal better be: make a winning record!

Too many pro se litigants miss this point. All words not aimed at making a winning record must go! Know how to write with punch, power, and persuasive effect.

Legal writing is NOT story-telling! Any fact not "relevant" and any law not "controlling" must be eliminated. The purpose for every word must be to make your winning record. Say what needs to be said and stop!

Protect Yourself From Lawyers
How to Win in Court 866-LAW-EASY ( 866-529-3279 )

Do you know what it takes to win a lawsuit?
If not, you probably plan on hiring a lawyer to go to court for you.

But, then, you probably don't have a clue what your lawyer should be doing. You probably don't know you can save thousands in lawyer fees by doing at least some of the work yourself to cut down on the lawyer's billable hours!

People who hire lawyers without knowing "what must be done to win" often end up bankrupt. The lawyers they hire bail out or wimp out before trial. The innocent lose ... and never know why! And, of course, if you can't afford a lawyer, you're required to fight in the dark with both hands tied behind your back!

There IS another way! There's no substitute for knowing "what it takes to win".

If you must hire a lawyer:

The Pro Se Problem
Why Pro Se Litigants Have a Hard Time.

Whether it's the high cost of lawyers' fees or growing distrust of lawyers in general, there is a mounting trend these days for more people to fight without a lawyer. Those who know "How to Win in Court" are winning. Those who don't are losing.

The American Bar Association (ABA) reports
    60% of the public can't afford a lawyer.
    20% simply don't want to spend the money.
    50% just don't trust lawyers!

Yet ½ of all court proceedings involve at least one pro se party. Too many pro se people are losing ... needlessly!

Ever wonder why you were never taught anything about court procedure or the rules of evidence in your tax-supported schools? Who benefits from your legal ignorance? You guessed it. Lawyers!

    Most pro se people know nothing about the official Rules of Evidence and the official Rules of Procedure that control the judge and all parties and their lawyers.
    Most pro se people have no idea what "due process" really is.
    " can't recognize the opposing lawyer's dirty tricks.
    " assume what "admissible evidence" is and don't know what stuff isn't.
    " draft their pleadings and motions incorrectly - usually with far too many words!
    " don't know why it's vital to write proposed orders for the judge to sign.
    " don't know why, when, or how to make effective objections in court.
    " don't understand what facts are critical to winning a case and what facts are of no consequence.
    " muddy the legal waters with court-confusing insignificant statements.
    " don't know how to find and cite controlling appellate opinions in support of their motions.
    " don't arrange in advance of every proceeding to have a court stenographer present, so they can control the judge.
    " waste valuable court time with non-essentials, fail to appreciate the needs of others who have other problems to bring before the court and, as a consequence, tend to make judges dread pro se cases and hate pro se people.

How to Read the Law
Know What the Law Actually Says and Means!

One of the biggest case-losing mistakes is mis-reading the law.
    Constitutions
    Rules
    Statutes
    Codes
    Court Rulings
    Other Legal Documents

If you don't know what a law actually says, you'll have a devilishly hard time getting a judge to agree with you! Understanding the "rules of language interpretation" is essential ... not only to winning lawsuits but to obtain success in other pursuits of life as well.

Legal language must be interpreted according to the "rules of language interpretation". Understanding the rules of language interpretation are vital to winning your case. You DO want to win, don't you?

Too many otherwise clever people "assume" they know what a law says, when the only opinion that counts in court is what appellate justices say the law says. Appellate justices apply the rules of language interpretation. You must also! Learn the rules ... if you want to win!

For example, one of the principles rules is the "Plain Meaning Rule". This rule requires judges to give words their "plain meaning", i.e., what an ordinary reasonable person would believe a word means in the context where it's found.

You must never let a judge or opposing party or his lawyer play games with words. Knowing these rules (more completely explained in my course) gives you the knowledge/power you need to put a stop to the word games!

If a reasonable person would read "bicycle" to mean a two-wheeled vehicle powered only by legs and feet, no judge or lawyer should be allowed to stretch the meaning to include mopeds or motorcycles. Judges and lawyers should be compelled to agree that a law says "plainly" what it says and that it means it.

Sometimes judges and lawyers twist words to reach an outcome they desire. YOU must know these rules so you can put a stop to it before it causes you to lose your case!

So? What if the meaning is plain but the context is confusing? Other rules (explained in my course) give clear direction. For example, according to the rule of "ejusdem generis" (simply Latin for "of the same type"), general terms at the end of specific lists include only things of the same type as those specifically mentioned in the list. If a provision lists "oranges, grapefruit, lemons, and other fruit", the doctrine of ejusdem generis limits the phrase "other fruit" to mean other citrus fruit. Apples and pears are not included. One may assume the provision includes other citrus, e.g., kumquats, limes, tangelos, etc. However, strawberries and grapes are not included. The term ejusdem generis means, in essence, of the same type.

How to Argue with Judges!

How to Win in Court
866-LAW-EASY ( 866-529-3279 )

Arguing with judges is like arguing with baseball umpires.
You better know the rules AND HOW TO USE THEM!
Here are a few rules from the Official Major League Baseball Rulebook:
A player is not permitted to step or go into a dugout to make a catch.
A player is permitted to reach into a dugout to make a catch.
If a player makes a catch outside the dugout and his momentum carries him into the dugout, the catch is allowed as long as the player does not fall in the dugout.

Simple enough? But! What if one team's players and coaches don't know the rules? Will it do any good to argue with the umpire? Probably not! And %#$@&$#*% will only get you thrown out of the park!

To argue with a baseball umpire or judge in a courtroom, you must know the Rules of Court ... and how to use them. Learn the official rules and how to use them ... or lose! End of story!


Win Without Risking Trial!

Do you know how to win before trial? Lawyers drag out cases so they can bill for more time. Many refuse to do things "the right way" so they can avoid trial, because they make more money if they can take their clients' cases all-the-way to the bitter, knock-down, drag-out bitter end at trial.

Do you hold winning cards (law and facts)? Then you can win before trial!
There is no evidence you cannot get in before trial.
There are no witnesses you cannot question under oath before trial.
There are no documents or things you cannot get in before trial.
There are no legal arguments you cannot make before trial.
There is nothing going to happen at trial that cannot be made to happen before trial. The "trying" of your case begins with the first pleading and continues with discovery and motions before trial.

Common reasons cases go to trial are:
Lazy lawyer who didn't do the pre-trial work he could have done.
Stupid lawyer who didn't know how to do the pre-trial work he could have done.
Greedy lawyer who didn't want to do the pre-trial work he could have done.
No lawyer and no idea how to do the pre-trial work that could have been done.

Don't wait for trial to win! A few reasons why are:
Trial is uncertain, especially with unpredictable juries and corrupt judges.
Trial is "think on your feet" with opponent trying to throw you off with objections.
Trial is a nasty battle against lawyers' willing to cheat if they can.
Trial is a last bite at the apple, with no take backs and no retreats.

Win before trial! There are no questions you can ask at a trial that you cannot ask before trial using interrogatories, requests for admissions, depositions, and subpoenas.

There are no documents or things you can bring to trial that you cannot get into the trial record before trial using requests for production, subpoenas, and depositions duce tecum.

There are no legal arguments you can make at trial that you cannot make more effectively and more powerfully before trial using the online legal research and carefully drafted memoranda.

Lawsuit Anatomy

Learn lawsuit anatomy by spelling: CAT. 3 stages in every case:
Complaint
Answer
Trial
Of course, there's much more to winning, but it's all easy if you start with basic anatomy: CAT.

The case begins when the plaintiff or prosecutor complains.
The defendant then has an opportunity to answer.
And, after the intervening battle to discover evidence, the matter goes to trial.

The real fight is in the discovery process ... not at trial as TV leads you to believe! Every winnable case can be won before trial. Learn how to win before trial at How to Win in Court


How to Dodge a Lawsuit

Do you wan to dodge a lawsuit? Whether you're a plaintiff or defendant, you must know what smart defendants do to dodge lawsuits. If a defendant is served with a complaint, he may dodge the lawsuit by filing motions to avoid filing an Answer! This is called a "flurry of motions".

Once a defendant files an Answer, he's locked in and misses this chance to dodge the lawsuit altogether. Don't file an Answer if you can dodge the lawsuit with a "flurry of motions".

Inexperienced lawyers and pro se people make the avoidable mistake of filing an Answer to plaintiff's Complaint ... instead of using the flurry of motions.

    Motion to Dismiss
    Motion to Strike
    Motion for More Definite Statement
Each of these motions postpones the necessity of filing an Answer to the Complaint ... and gains you valuable time and evidence-gathering opportunities!In some cases it puts an end to the case. Period!

Failure to use the Flurry of Motions weakens your case. Learn how to use the Flurry of Motions at How to Win in Court.

Legal Research

Ignorance of the Law is NO EXCUSE! Do you know how to find the official law that will decides who wins your case? Do you know how to find and read appellate case reports? Do you know how to find and read statutes, code, and ordinances?

It's easier than you might imagine! If you went to court before personal computers and the internet, you'd be digging through dismally dry and boring stacks of look-alike books in a law library (if you could find one nearby).

Back then, winning required hundreds of hours turning dusty pages, pulling piles of books from the stacks, spreading them on a library table, and taking notes on a yellow pad in search of support. All that has changed. Thanks to the internet and price competition, online legal research is now within the reach of most pocketbooks.

Learn how to find the law. Learn how to cite the law in your pleadings, motions, memoranda, and briefs. Clever argument is not enough. You cannot win without finding and citing official legal authorities that control judges.

Be assured your opponent will cite legal authorities favoring his case. You must do the same … if you want to win. Learn how to find and cite the law at How to Win in Court

Using On-Line Legal Research
How to Win in Court - 866-LAW-EASY ( 866-529-3279 )

Find the Law that Controls the Judge! Otherwise, you cannot hope to win! You cannot win without citing "legal authority". You cannot cite "legal authority" if you don't know how to find it.

The judge is not "legal authority". Judges are required to obey "legal authority". Go tell a judge your personal opinions about the law and how you think he should rule, and see how far it gets you! The only opinions that count in court are written opinions of appellate court justices. Your opinions count for nothing in court.

Control the judge with "legal authority" by researching and citing appellate court opinions. Controlling judges is what wins cases! Your opponent will cite legal authorities. You must do the same ... if you want to win.

When "The Law" Breaks the Law!

Control those who Control YOU! The Wild Wild West was won by a few folks clever enough to establish "Law & Order" in the unsettled wilds west of the Mississippi by bringing along:
    A thoroughly-read Bible,
    A Colt revolver and Winchester rifle,
    A good horse and well-provisioned wagon, and
    A sturdy copy of Blackstone's Commentaries on the Laws of England

England, did you say? Yup! In that single book (you can get a Kindle or Nook version for free) written before our Declaration of Independence, those early settlers found enough common-sense law to jail bandits, hang rustlers, and open the way for railroads and booming towns and cities ... impossible without law and order.

Contrary to what you see on TV, it wasn't faster guns or bigger fists that settled lawless towns like Tombstone and Dodge City. It was the support of local townsfolk who wanted law and order. People who believed in the principles of Justice found in those two books: the Bible and Blackstone. People with courage to put an end to lawlessness.

Yet today we face a new threat [of] lawlessness! It may be a bank using fraud to foreclose. It may be a corrupt business partner, ex-spouse, or next-door neighbor out-of-control. For many it's the threat of government officials refusing to follow the law - tax collectors, police officers, and corrupt judges who break the law to allow fraud to reign free in their courts as lawyers rape people who do not know "How to Win in Court".

When "the law" becomes outlaw, there's only one remedy. People who know how to use the Rules! The Rules of Evidence that control all civil and criminal proceedings in state and federal courts comprise less than 30 pages in the official rule books? The Rules of Procedure that control all civil and criminal proceedings in state and federal courts comprise less than 60 pages in the official rule books?

You can use those rules to control every judge, every lawyer, every bank, every giant corporation, your next door neighbor, a business partner, and every state and federal agency trying to pull the wool over your eyes. Solve your legal problems today the same way western settlers brought lawlessness to its knees in the Wild West more than a century ago ... learn the Rules!

Justice is Yours for the Taking! Protect yourself [and] children from lawless legal officials, scheming bankers, incompetent doctors, rival siblings, and anyone else who seeks to do you harm. If a fraudulent lender, bill collector, tax man, corrupt judge, crooked lawyer, or anyone else uses unlawful force to deprive you or your family of your rights, teach them a lesson!

That's how the West was won! Learn now at How to Win in Court

Preparing for Hearings or Trial

Preparation is everything! Whether you're training for the Olympics or trying to win a case in court, winners know they must exercise, prepare themselves, and be ready for competition. Most court cases can be won before trial.

All you need to know is how to use a handful of tools effectively.
    Proper pleadings.
    Evidence discovery tools.
    Motions and memoranda.
    Courtroom objections.

Pleadings frame the case and tell the court what the fight is about. Evidence proves the facts alleged. Motions "move" the court to act. Courtroom objections put the judge on notice he will be appealed if he rules against you!

Finding Evidence - Part One
Intgerrogatories
http://HowtoWininCourt.com 866-LAW-EASY (866-529-3279)

Evidence is the "stuff" that wins cases. Do you know how to find it? One way is with interrogatories. Interrogatories are just written questions that must be answered under oath ... or someone goes to jail!

For example, one interrogatory I serve on my clients' opponents reads, "Identify all persons having first-hand knowledge of any material fact alleged in the pleadings of this case and, with regard to each such person, state what they know about each such fact and how they came to know it." The other side will have a fit!

You are entitled to find the evidence you need ... no matter who has it. No matter who is trying to hide it! Rule 26(b) Federal Rules of Civil Procedure provides, "Parties may obtain discovery regarding any nonprivileged matter that is relevant to any party's claim or defense, including the existence, description, nature, custody, condition, and location of any documents or other tangible things and the identity and location of persons who know of any discoverable matter. For good cause, the court may order discovery of any matter relevant to the subject matter involved in the action."

Don't be left holding an empty evidence bag! Learn how to use interrogatories and see the sample forms at How to Win in Court.

Part Two
Request for Admissions


Requests for Admissions find evidence. And how! A request for admissions is simply a list of facts you serve on your opponent that he is required to answer within a set amount of time or have those things treated as admitted!

Requests for Admissions are POWERFUL! If you know how to use them tactically. Requests for admissions are like leading questions! They can find evidence your opponent is trying to hide. They can turn your opponent inside-out!

Don't be hoodwinked by lack of legal knowledge. None of what you need to win is rocket science! Don't let lawyers trick you! You have a God-given right to find the evidence you need to win. Learn how to use Requests for Admissions and see the sample forms at How to Win in Court

Part Three
Requests for Production


You can get your opponent's toothbrush or bank records, if they will help you win your case ... and either your opponent turns them over or you can send your opponent to jail!

The discovery tool is called a Request for Production. You can use it to get documents or things ... of all descriptions. Requests for Production are simply papers requiring your opponent to produce documents and tangible things you list in your request ... so you can inspect them and copy them for your own use.

Finding evidence was never easier! Even though they're called "requests", they force your opponent to produce ... or go to jail.

Protect yourself from the crooked, deceitful hide-the-ball game lawyers play! Learn how to use Requests for Production and see the sample forms at How to Win in Court

Part Four
Depositions


Depositions are simply a chance to show people things and ask them questions while they are under oath ... and with an official court reporter making a written record. The deponent (person being deposed) is exposed to criminal penalties for perjury.

Depositions are your opportunity to put your opponent and every necessary witness under oath before trial and get answers to questions that go beyond the tight restrictions of the rules of evidence that control at trial!

The facts you seek at a deposition need not be admissible at trial so long as they are "reasonably calculated to lead to discovery of admissible evidence".

However it's done, taking depositions is simply one of putting a witness under oath in the presence of a court reporter (who administers the oath and records all that's asked and answered) and in the presence of your opponent (and his counsel, if he has a lawyer) who may also ask questions of the witness.

Knowing how and when to take depositions gives you a major advantage over your opponent. Learn how to use Depositions at How to Win in Court

Um, no, they don't automatically have to answer any question you ask, or produce any evidence you request, or whatever.

They can quite easily refuse.

Then you have to file a motion to ask the judge to compel them to do so.  They have an opportunity to respond to your motion.  And if the judge rules in your favor, they can file a motion to reconsider.

And if you are trying to get a judge to compel someone in producing something frivolous, like their toothbrush or something, you may very well end up in jail for contempt of court.

Pretty much nothing in that post is actually honest.

I was posting Fred Graves' info. He's a lawyer with 25 or more years experience and he helps people learn to win in court with or without a lawyer and he advises winning and getting the opposition to settle before trial, before or after a hearing. All of this effort to get evidence is meant to occur before trial and possibly even before a hearing. So there would be no contempt of court, if it's not occurring in court.

Your info might be helpful if you would state it clearly. As is, it's not very clear and I can't tell if your knowledge is any better than Fred's.

All of this effort to get evidence is meant to occur before trial and possibly even before a hearing. So there would be no contempt of court, if it's not occurring in court.

All of the things listed in that post are things that occur during the legal process, not before it.  You can certainly request answers to questions but, as I noted, you can't require them other than by requesting that the judge compel the other party to respond.  The only way you can do that is by submitting a motion to have that done, either by mail or at a hearing.  Unless it's something that obviously relates, the judge is going to ask you what purpose the given evidence or question serves.  In either case, you can be charged with contempt if the motion is frivolous.

For example, "I need his phone records from 8:15PM to 9:45PM on the night of the 28th of April to prove that he called me and spent approximately 50 minutes on the phone with me, which demonstrates that he initiated the contact and didn't just hang up as soon as I pitched this offer to him, supporting my claim that we did, in fact, discuss it at length and reached a verbal agreement" would be a realistic and reasonable request.

"I need his phone records for the past three months, just because" is not.  The courts tend to take a dim view of using the system for harassment.  Following Graves' advice would put someone at a substantial risk of spending some time behind bars, being fined, or both.

Your info might be helpful if you would state it clearly. As is, it's not very clear and I can't tell if your knowledge is any better than Fred's.

Please let me know what you found unclear.  The law is often hard to explain, but I do my best to make my posts accessible.

- Is Fred wrong in saying that someone goes to jail if they don't answer an interrogatory in a case?

Yes.  Failure to answer an interrogatory is not grounds for imprisonment, or even a fine.  Anyone can ask anyone any question, anywhere.  That's all an interrogatory is.  I can walk up to you on the street and ask you a question; you don't go to jail for refusing to answer me.

- Who does and who doesn't go to jail for refusing to answer?
- Fred said you're entitled to the evidence you need. So, if a judge agrees that the evidence you request in an interrogatory is needed, is Fred right then that failure to answer can result in going to jail?

No one goes to jail for refusing to answer.  Someone might go to jail for contempt of court if that individual was ordered to answer, and did not do so.  BUt the cause would be the refusal to abide by the judge's order, not the refusal to answer.  A judge can order you to take off your hat, and throw you in jail if you refuse, for that matter.

- Or are some people privileged and don't have to answer, even if the judge agrees that the evidence is needed?

I've never met anyone who was jailed pursuant to refusal to answer an interrogatory.  I'm sure it happens that someone is ordered to do so, and does not, and gets jailed for contempt, but it's rare.  If nothing else, the individual can always exercise his Fifth Amendment right to stand silent.  Few judges have any interest in getting involved in a Constitutional dispute, so they usually won't pursue that for some minor civil case.

- Do you contend that Fred's example of an interrogatory that he said he uses is a bad example that would often result in contempt?

I can't imagine any judge actually enforcing an interrogatory like that.  It's ridiculously over-broad.  You don't get to demand that the other party hand you a case, wrapped with a bow.  You can ask specific questions, but something that basically says, "prove my case for me" is going to get tossed.

And, by the way, how about telling us your background in law? Do you provide people law info for a fee or free?

Charging for legal advice is generally illegal, unless you're a licensed lawyer.  I've been studying law for around three decades, both on my own and by paying to take courses at law schools.

(My own background involves having had a 1,000 dollar fine for driving in my home state of Illinois in 2003 without insurance and with a suspended license and for a few minor problems; then buying $400 worth of books by James B Woods III and learning enough law from that and from the Tips and Tricks yahoogroup to get out of the fine at the hearing, but only doing 20 hours of community service at a charity of my choice. I felt it wasn't worth the trouble to go to trial, but I would have if they had insisted on a sizable fine, say 100 or more.)

I prefer it when the judge turns to the prosecutor and says, "why don't I make it easy - case dismissed," personally.  That resulted from a failure of the prosecutor to provide proper discovery, so the evidentiary motions can definitely be useful, but they have to be properly-done.  If the judge had been annoyed at me for pushing a bunch of nonsense, he might have let it ride the way it was, and forced me to prove, item-by-item, that any given piece of discovery which had not been provided was actually something that would prejudice my case.  Instead, he tossed it within two minutes.  There are ways to use the rules to win, but annoying the court with frivolous nonsense is not among them.

M.S., thanks for your comments. Now I'd like to have your comments on the opening post of this thread, which I'm copying below.

Quote
Injunctions
"(I)njunctions are able to command high officials to answer your questions and concerns about what they're doing with your children, your tax dollars, and the future of your country. There are no limitations on injunctions. You can file a complaint seeking an injunction to require a local school board to tell you why children are being taught non-traditional values. You can file for an injunction to stop chemical dumping, or to fill in dangerous holes left by abandoned excavations. You can even bring an action to enjoin leaders to explain why government doesn't teach its public even the simplest points of how to win in court. ... If you're one of the good guys, you're supposed to use your power to make the world better for all of us. Force government and giant businesses to answer you on the public record (or [they] go to jail). ... Demand justice! Learn your fundamental right to be heard by the court. Move the court. Enforce the official rules in your jurisdiction. Make everyone obey -- the American way."
Quote
Mr. Graves explains that everyone has the duty not to harm others and that causes of action for injunctions and law suits are any acts or negligence that can be shown to have caused undue harm. That includes harm done by public servants by direct action or by negligence.

Suggested Causes of Action
I think some of the greatest abuses that we should prosecute are the following:
- Racketeering in and out of government, with major media as accomplices;
- Lawmaking that violates human rights, including unjust war;
- IRS fraud, such as claims that all citizens and residents are liable for income and employment taxes, and thus prosecuting fraudulently;
- Prisoner abuse; prosecution of victimless crimes; promoting criminal recidivism;
- ABA licensing of incompetent lawyers (who fail to properly represent clients' interests);
- NEA, ATA, School Boards abuse and miseducation of students;
- CFS unnecessary forced separation of parents and their children;
- FDA, AMA, ADA, APA et al approval of unsafe health products and biased health science;
- NSF, AAAS et al support for biased science.
Do you know much about injunctions? Fred made it sound like people could help end a lot of govt corruption by using injunctions. Do you know if he's right? If you think he's not right, can you say why? And do you have ideas about how to end major corruption via the legal system etc?

The same issues of contempt apply.  Additionally, if you were to file a frivolous injunction, the other party could recover damages from you for your action.  If you are being sued, you have a lot more leeway in what you can do - once you are the initiating party, then you're the plaintiff, and the defendant can recover quite a bit in damages if your injunction was frivolous or fraudulent.

You also need to convince a judge to rule in your favor.  So the ability to use an injunction to fight against corrupt government is pretty limited... since you are asking the government to rule that the government is corrupt.

Another item worth note is a writ of mandamus, which is a court order to some body who has a legal authority to perform some action (or fail to perform some action), ordering that body to carry out its duty.  So, if some town planning board was giving someone trouble by refusing to act on his request to subdivide a property, he could file for a writ of mandamus to get the court to order the board to make a decision.  Then, if the board refused him, he could file against them if their decision was biased or somesuch.  If they could just sit on it, he would have no decision to appeal, and would be stuck, so mandamus works to prevent that.

Flat out, trying to use the government to fight the government is a losing proposition.  The judge will look at the signature on his paycheck.  Separation of Powers -- Legislative, Executive and Judicial -- it's three mouths on one tax-paying tit.

Of course, nobody will ever accuse me of "Respect of Court" unless I'm in free market arbitration.

Ward, how would you persuade anyone to use free market arbitration? Would you threaten to sue if they don't arbitrate?

Anyway, the people of the U.S. are the govt, you know; the public office holders aren't the govt, regardless of what they think or how they act.

I don't enter a contract without an arbitration agreement.  If somebody defaults, I publish the fact.

Sorry, _I'm_ not part of the government.  I haven't been represented by any elected official in my lifetime, and especially during these two decades in New Jersey.  Seems I always voted for losers.  And if "We, the People" are the real government, I prefer to stay an anarchist.  Democracy is just gang warfare writ large:  "we outnumber you, we can beat you up, so you better do what we want".  Not that elected officials pay any attention to the campaign promises, anyway.

Ward, have you published any defaults on contracts? If so, could you describe some of them or copy them for us? Why would such publication have any effect?

I don't accept majority rule either. Unanimous rule is the only appropriate form of rule by those of sound mind. Authoritarians are not of sound mind. Self-defense is not authoritarian. Authoritarians like anarchists, because the latter don't unify to defend themselves from authoritarians.

By the way, prejudice against political words, like "government", is irrational. Collaborative self-government is reasonable and responsible.

I would, but mostly I've been lucky in who I contracted with.  My late wife was not so stringent, which is why it took me five months to use the New Jersey legal system to evict the guy renting our first floor after he stopped renting and started squatting.  Apparently the judge in Jersey City accepted his claim that alcoholism was a disability under the current legal structure protecting "disabled" people.

Case-Winning Paperwork - Part 1

How to Win in Court
866-LAW-EASY ( 866-529-3279 )

Want to drive your opponents nuts? Tie them down with word-power! What you'll learn will empower you to stuff your opponents in a word-box and win your case hands-down!

Most pro se people never understand this ... so they lose, needlessly. Many lawyers never understand this ... so they also lose, needlessly ... and take their client's money anyway!

Short sentences. Powerful sentences. Sentences with ONE VERB. Sentences with ONE SUBJECT. One subject. One verb. And only the absolutely necessary adjectives and adverbs. If it's important to say your opponent's nose was gigantic, say so. Otherwise, leave it out! Each sentence is a complete thought.

Mrs. Edgerton taught me that in Second Grade, and it's helped me win countless court battles. Winning in court is all about effective communication. The "How to Win in Court" course will show you how!

Case-Winning Paperwork - Part 2

What is the goal of legal writing? Think about this question ... think really, really hard and long! What is your goal? Impress the judge? Confuse the opponent? Or, win the case?

Everything we do in life has in one sense or another a particular goal. Some things we do are automatic, like breathing, yet there is always a goal.

In business, the goal is to provide a benefit to others that they will want to pay for. In sports, the goal is to perform to the highest of our athletic ability. In law, the goal is to achieve certain well defined benchmarks!

Here is where most lawyers and nearly all pro se people miss the boat ... they get sidetracked! Every word, spoken in the courtroom or written on paper filed with the clerk and served on the other side, must aim toward a specific goal. Any words not aimed at the goal must go!

Most of what I've seen from pro se people (and quite a bit from the dozens of lawyers I had to deal with since 1986 when I first started as a licensed attorney) read more like a long-winded story.

Legal writing is NOT "story-telling"! Every word has a purpose. Any word that can do nothing substantial to achieve the goal (which is winning, by the way) must go. Say what needs saying and stop! Aim every word at your goal.

You don't need a "novelist's eye" or a "bartender's ear", like Jimmy Buffett. You're assembling the parts of a powerful engine.

Get Your Evidence Admitted ! ! !
How to Win in Court
866-LAW-EASY (866-529-3279)

Don't end up like this poor fellow! Here he is in the heat of trial. He's trying to offer documents he's been counting on to win his case. He's trying to present them for the first time on the day of the trial. Big mistake!

His documents can do nothing unless and until they are admitted as "admissible evidence". He will lose ... needlessly! He thought he'd be tricky and surprise his opponents. He hid his "evidence", waiting till the last minute to "spring it" on his opponent at trial, hoping it would be too late for his opponent to respond effectively.

Bad idea! Ambush rarely works at trial ... no matter what you see on TV or in the movies. If you don't get your evidence in before trial, you'll likely not get it in at all. Then you will lose ... needlessly!

Why not be prepared? You only get one bite at the trial apple. Why wait till trial to test evidence for admissibility. Never trust what a witness promises she will say. Never trust that a document will be admitted ... even if it's sealed with royal wax imprinted by a king's ring and draped with silk ribbons.

If you assume you have "evidence" to spring on your opponent at trial, you are playing a dangerous game, risking everything for no advantage whatever. If you wait to present "secret evidence" at trial, you're betting on the wrong horse!

Evidence that isn't admitted isn't evidence! Authenticate before trial. Learn how at How to Win in Court

Offers of Proof in Court
If you start to offer evidence and, before you can get it before the court, the other side objects and the judge sustains your opponent's objection, you must move the court to allow you to make clear on the record what your evidence was going to be and what it would tend to prove! This is making an offer of proof. Expect your opponent to try to stop you. Be prepared to make an offer of proof immediately ... or risk losing needlessly! An offer of proof shows the court on the record: What the offered evidence is and What the evidence tends to prove Failure to get evidence admitted is fatal! If you don't get your evidence admitted and don't make an offer of proof, you'll have nothing to appeal if you lose! If you don't make an offer of proof, the record will not show the appellate court what the evidence would have been. There'll be nothing in the record for the appellate court to review! Appellate courts will not examine evidence that wasn't made part of the record at the trial level. You can't introduce evidence for the first time on appeal. Like baseball umpire say, "Them's the rules!" Evidence that doesn't get in is no evidence at all. Learn how to make offers of proof at How to Win in Court

The Burden of Proof ... Who Must Do What and Why!
You must understand who has the burden of proof ... and why it matters! If you're being sued, the other side has the burden of proof. If the other side files a motion, they have the burden of proof. But, sometimes the burden shifts back-and-forth. Knowing who has the burden is critical. Don't be victimized by lawyers tricking you into thinking the burden is yours, making you struggle to "disprove" a fact or the application of law ... when the burden is not on you! The burden is always on the party asserting a fact or law to prove what he asserts. It's never your job to disprove what he asserts! In more than 27 years as a case-winning lawyer, I've won many cases simply by forcing the court to require my opponent to "put up or shut up". Think how this can be applied to foreclosure or credit card cases! A credit lender asserts his alleged debtor owes, and far too often the alleged debtor spins his wheels trying prove he doesn't owe ... instead of forcing the creditor to prove what he claims or be dismissed! Knowing how to shift the burden is power to win! Why be tricked by other members of my profession? Learn more about the burden and more at How to Win in Court

Use Judicial Notice Motions!
How to Win in Court 866-LAW-EASY ( 866-529-3279 ) Why struggle to prove obvious facts? Enter to Win!Every court (state or federal) provides an easy way to prove obvious facts. The method is called "Judicial Notice". Like everything else about "How to Win in Court", it's easy to do! And, you should do it whenever you can. Make your opponents' legal bullets bounce harmlessly off your educated chest by moving the court to take judicial notice of obvious facts. Don't spend valuable court energy trying to prove what the court must admit when you move it to do so. Once the court takes judicial notice of a fact, the court's order settles the issue for all purposes. Here's a true story from one of my early cases:   My client hired me to recover a security deposit from her former landlord, who claimed she owed him for cutting down a tree.   The tree was a Brazilian Pepper tree, a nuisance plant here in Florida, related to poison ivy, poison oak, and poison sumac.   I didn't spin my wheels trying to prove that tree was worthless.   I said, "Your honor, I move the court for an order taking judicial notice that Brazilian Pepper trees have been deemed a nuisance plant in Florida and therefore have no commercial value to justify this landlord's witholding my client's security deposit."   The judge smiled, pleased at the opportunity to tell us what he knew of this pesky bush. He leaned back in his leather-backed chair and put his hands behind his head as if he were going to tell a story to his grandchildren. He talked about those nasty trees for at least 10 minutes, detailing problems he and his family had and reciting concern officials have with the invasion of this plant from Argentina where it was seen as an attractive ornamental. He talked about rashes he received on his own hands after whacking away at one of the menace trees in his own backyard.   Suddenly, he leaned forward, turned toward the landlord, pronounced, "Motion granted. Judgment for the plaintiff." My client got her deposit money. If a fact is commonly known, move the court to take judicial notice. Learn how at How to Win in Court

Why Pro Se Litigants Have a Hard Time.
Whether it's the high cost of lawyers' fees or growing distrust of lawyers in general, there is a mounting trend these days for more people to fight without a lawyer. The American Bar Association (ABA) reports
    60% of the public can't afford a lawyer.
    20% simply don't want to spend the money.
    50% just don't trust lawyers!
Yet ½ of all court proceedings involve at least one pro se party. Too many pro se people lose ... needlessly! Ever wonder why you were never taught anything about court procedure or the rules of evidence in your tax-supported schools?

Who benefits from your legal ignorance? You guessed it. Lawyers!
    Most pro se people know nothing about the official Rules of Evidence that control the judge and all parties and their lawyers.
    Most pro se people know nothing about the official Rules of Procedure that control the judge and all parties and their lawyers.
    Most pro se people have no idea what "due process" really is.
    Most pro se people can't recognize the opposing lawyer's dirty tricks.
    Most pro se people assume what "admissible evidence" is and don't know what stuff isn't.
    Most pro se people draft their pleadings and motions incorrectly - usually with far too many words!
    Most pro se people don't know why it's vital to write proposed orders for the judge to sign.
    Most pro se people don't know why, when, or how to make effective objections in court.
    Most pro se people don't understand what facts are critical to winning a case and what facts are of no consequence.
    Most pro se people muddy the legal waters with court-confusing insignificance.
    Most pro se people don't know how to find and cite controlling appellate opinions in support of their motions.
    Most pro se people don't arrange in advance of every proceeding to have a court stenographer present, so they can control the judge.
    Most pro se people waste valuable court time with non-essentials, fail to appreciate the needs of others who have other problems to bring before the court and, as a consequence, tend to make judges dread pro se cases and hate pro se people.

How to Dodge a Lawsuit
http://HowToWinInCourt.com
866-LAW-EASY (866-529-3279)

Need to dodge a lawsuit? Whether you're a plaintiff or defendant, you must know what smart defendants do to dodge lawsuits.

If a defendant is served with a complaint, he may dodge the lawsuit by filing motions to avoid filing an Answer! This is called the "flurry of motions". Once a defendant files an Answer, he's locked in and misses this chance to dodge the lawsuit altogether. Don't file an Answer if you can dodge the lawsuit with a "flurry of motions".

Inexperienced lawyers and pro se people make the avoidable mistake of filing an Answer to plaintiff's Complaint ... instead of using the flurry of motions.
    Motion to Dismiss
    Motion to Strike
    Motion for More Definite Statement

Each of these motions postpones the necessity of filing an Answer to the Complaint ... and gains you valuable time and evidence-gathering opportunities! In some cases it puts an end to the case. Period!

Failure to use the Flurry of Motions weakens your case. Know how to use the Flurry of Motions.

(503) 381-1755
_MERCERSBURG, PA:  Today, the United States District Court for the Western District of Pennsylvania issued an order imposing sanctions on two attorneys defending a Community Bill of Rights Ordinance adopted by Grant Township, Pennsylvania.  The Township has spent years fighting to stop frack wastewater injection wells from being sited in the community with assistance from the Community Environmental Legal Defense Fund (CELDF).
_Injection wells – which involve the high pressure underground dumping of millions of gallons of frack wastewater, which contains toxins, carcinogens, and other chemicals – cause earthquakes, can contaminate drinking water, and bring other environmental and public health impacts.
_Today’s ruling comes as part of a lawsuit in which Pennsylvania General Energy, LLC (PGE) is suing Grant Township to overturn the Township’s ban on frack wastewater injection wells.  (Pennsylvania General Energy Company, LLC v. Grant Township)
_Not satisfied with suing the community and questioning its authority to protect the people and environment of Grant Township from injection wells, the company decided to punish its lawyers by seeking monetary sanctions against them.
“At a time when Americans more and more are looking to the courts for reason and justice, today we find neither, as corporate forces once again have been able to wield our institutions of government to punish those working to elevate the rights of communities over fossil fuel corporations,” stated CELDF’s Associate Director Mari Margil.
_Magistrate Judge Susan Baxter earlier found that the Township’s prohibition on injection wells violated the corporation’s constitutional rights.  The case is scheduled for a jury trial in May, at which PGE will seek hundreds of thousands of dollars from the Township, claiming that it suffered harm because the company has been prevented from dumping frack waste in a residential area next to the Township’s sole source of drinking water.

what’s happening?
Brentwood, NH, residents are hosting a film screening of We the People 2.0. The film shares stories from communities across the country who are facing harmful corporate activities. To protect themselves, they are confronting our legal structure, which elevates the rights of corporations over the rights of people, communities, and nature.

Brentwood residents face the same kinds of harms and the same legal structure as that of communities in the film. Threatened with the Granite Bridge Pipeline project, they are organizing to safeguard the air, water, and soil of their community.

CELDF’s New Hampshire community organizer, Michelle Sanborn, will be part of the discussion following the screening. With Sanborn, Brentwood residents will learn how New Hampshire communities are partnering with CELDF around water rights, sustainable energy, and freedom from chemical trespass, in addition to social justice rights.

Together, they are working to secure their rights locally and at the state level with a state constitutional amendment securing the right to local self-government.

If you think local self-government isn't better than state government, there's something wrong with you, don't you know? Do you want the state to be able to tell local people how to govern themselves? You've heard of the Free Town Project idea I'm sure. That's what local self-government is, is it not? Should not towns have the right to decide if they want to get rid of zoning or taxation etc? Instead of taxes, I think towns should have their own banks and use interest on loans in place of taxes.
