David Clarke is the sheriff of Milwaukee County Court and is a huge constitutionalist. I want to Respond with a counter Claim to have a trial by jury under Common Law and I need your support 720 403 1665. The NLA says that they want in the courts and I have the map of how to get there.

You need a crash course on sovereignty, what is a court, jurisdiction, and what is a court of record. is where you can find these, if you don't understand the information, it will not be helpful. The counter claim needs to be based on questioning the jurisdiction for the summons. If the case is in regards to another party being injured, then the injured party has jurisdiction, (a right to call you into court to answer for the injury). If I were you, I would start there. As for the trial by jury, that part is easy, simply say in the answer that is what you want, having common law is more difficult, next to impossible as a defendant. There really is so much that a simply blog reply can not cover it all. Start at and read EVERYTHING, and listen to the lectures, once again, if you don't understand the information it will not be helpful. You have mad the first step by being here looking for the answers.

Yes. I Gary, not Jerry, did indeed remove posts relating to the Fake Judge Anna Von Reitz. While you are free to follow her, you may do so on your own and not add her confusion to this group. This is an NLA site and shall remain so.

As I travel across the internet for the truth about our our world and society I simply can't believe that so much in world events over the past centuries have left us in the uncertainty of a continued existence here on earth. Is it possible that we are an experiment induced by God or an alien culture? Is it possible that we are failing some sort of an experiment? I simply can't wrap my head around the fact that so many of the people I have known over the last seventy years are for the most part really good people just trying to stay good people. Yet it seems that we have a lesser number of people that will lie, cheat, kill, steal, etc. and we travel further down the road to what seems to be a dead end or possibly a failed experiment. How can we even consider a continued human existence when we have governments that on one hand destroy millions upon millions of people yet others spend billions upon billions of dollars to extend the lives of others? I just don't understand how this is supposed to work. Oh! It seems as though we have an exploding world population also. If this is by design it sure looks like a lousy program to me. I guess I will consider sitting back for a while because I simply do not have any answers.

Not failed. There is a Creator who gave an inspired account that we may know them (God is singular plural). Proof of Godship is the telling of the future before it happens. The Proof is called the Bible the original writing is correct translation washes out the full force of what was said and we don't live in the culture it was written in. But there is enough there and scholars to help to learn and understand. All the prophesies upto this time have come true there are more to be fullfilled. Sincerely Radman

It is said earth is a master study class for the soul !
We all partitioned heaven to be here and are the lucky ones that got a ticket here !
Our souls will learn lessons about love not found anywhere else !
It is said the heavens watch us in aw! Be proud to be here we are spiritual beings having a human experience .... Not human beings occasionally having spiritual experiences ... With love to all ...

Pat Anderson comment
Common Law Grand Jury does not make a decision, it investigates and presents an information or an indictment. The petit jury makes the decision. Free Civics and Constitution courses on John Darash never fired any Grand Jury. He spoke to the leaders of Florida and Colorado and they came to an impasse. I think you should all get the facts straight.

If common law has no place in America, then explain this...

Amendment VII

In suits at common law, where the value in controversy shall exceed twenty dollars, the right of trial by jury shall be preserved, and no fact tried by a jury, shall be otherwise reexamined in any court of the United States, than according to the rules of the common law.

Well it has been a long time coming, but all along there have been discussions behind closed doors (never in public) that the Administrative Law Courts established with the New Deal were totally unfounded and unconstitutional. With the anniversary of Magna Carta and the right to a jury trial coming up on June 15 after 800 years, the era of Roosevelt’s big government is quietly unraveling.

A federal judge’s ruling against the Securities and Exchange Commission for using its own Administrative Law judges in an insider trading case is perhaps the beginning of the end of an alternative system of justice that took root in the New Deal. Constitutionally, the socialists tore everything about the idea of a Democracy apart. It was more than taxing one party to the cheers of another in denial of equal protection. It was about creating administrative agencies (1) delegating them to create rules with the force of law as if passed by Congress sanctioned by the people; (2) the creation of administrative courts that defeated the Tripartite government structure usurping all power into the hand of the executive branch, as if this were a dictatorship run by the great hoard of unelected officials.

Not discussed in the coverage of this story is that the Administrative Law Courts are a fiefdom, to put it mildly. They have long been corrupt and traditionally rule in favor of their agencies, making it very costly for anyone to even try to defend themselves. If someone were to attempt this feat, first they have to wear the costs of an Administration proceeding and appeal to an Article III court judge, then they must appeal to the Court of Appeals, and finally plea to the Supreme Court. The cost of such adventures is well into the millions, and good luck on actually getting justice.

Furthermore, Administrative Law Courts cannot sentence you to prison, but they can fine you into bankruptcy. So the lack of a criminal prosecution meant the judges did not have to be lawyers. They could be anyone’s brother-in-law looking for a job where he just rules in favor of the agency not to be bothered with law. Unless the victim has a pile of money, there is no real chance that he or she can afford to defend themselves. This is why the agencies cut deals with the big houses and prosecute the small upstarts who lack the funds to defend themselves.

In a 45-page ruling, U.S. District Judge Leigh Martin May in Atlanta issued an injunction halting Administrative Law proceedings against Charles Hill, a businessman who the SEC accused of reaping an illegal $744,000 profit trading in Radian Systems stock. This is typical. The legal fees involved will exceed the amount of money he is alleged to have made, the typical result is to just pay the fine and they go away, it is cheaper.

The judge ruled that the SEC agency violated the Appointments Clause of the Constitution by subjecting Hill to proceedings before an Administrative Law judge, who isn’t directly accountable to the president, officials in charge of the SEC, or the courts under Article III. The ruling is 81 years overdue. The entire structure of administrative agencies blackmailing people has been outrageous. Then you take the banks who just entered a plea of CRIMINALLY guilty to manipulating markets. They are now formally FELONS who engaged in violating SEC rules and thus under the SEC rules, they are no longer eligible for a banking license. The banks are “too big to jail” and the SEC has waived their own rules, of course, to exempt the banks. So they can engage in fraud and manipulation, get caught, pay billions in fines, and the SEC exempts them from losing their licenses. This is how corrupt the administrative agencies really are.

This new decision calling the Administrative Law Courts what they really are is reminiscent of the notorious extrajudicial proceedings of the Star Chamber operated by King James I. The court of Chancery set up outside of the King’s Bench, so there were no trials by jury. It had the same purpose, to circumvent the law. This is where our Fifth Amendment privilege came into being. That came about following the trial of John Lilburne (1615-1657) for handing out a pamphlet the government did not like.

The Miranda v Arizona 384 U.S. 436 (1966) decision of the Supreme Court came only after decades of abuse by American police against citizens, not unlike what we are watching today. The Miranda decision is hated by police, prosecutors, right-wing judges, politicians, and citizens. The decision is based upon the history of the right not to be coerced that began with the famous trial of John Lilburn before the English court of the Star Chamber in 1637 where he stood tall and objected to the King’s torture. Lilburn’s crime was handing out pamphlets against the king. John Lilburne (1615–1657) was a leader in the Leveller Movement of the 1640s and was a prolific pamphleteer who defended religious and individual liberty of the people. He was imprisoned many times for his views and was active in the army of the New Parliament rising to the rank of Lieutenant Colonel. In October 1649, he was arrested and tried for High Treason for printing and circulating books and pamphlets critical of the government but was acquitted of all charges by a jury of his peers.

Ignorant smear campaign against the People is archived here:

It looks like most of the cases dealt with all parties being totally or somewhat ignorant of the law and legal definitions of many used words. It may be impossible to find any of it that holds water against any of the People acting as Plaintiff(s) in a Court of Record. :)

That this is the ADL is quite telling. I keep looking but fail to see anything that contradicts the idea that "our government" is controlled by these evil filth. I don't think anything constructive is going to happen until these folks are made to take their lies elsewhere. That's why getting our access back into OUR courts will enable us to allow prosecution of all who are destroying our country. The filth will NEVER simply back off and go's just too lucrative and seductive for them.

I don't believe that the ADL is ignorant AT ALL. It's all a part of the whole effort to own everything; lock, stock, barrel and human.

Googling for case laws can be a huge waste of time. Are there some law sites that have easier search methods to double-check/verify case laws? What do the courts use online for this?
