Most people believe that they only have one vote in our system of government, and that is when they go to the voting booth to elect people to office. There is another vote you have that carries tremendous power. It's called your Grand Jury vote.
To see a one page primer on what the Grand Jury is and what it's powers are read this from the Fully Informed Jury Website. Click Here
You have several votes that you don't know about. You have your vote in the ballot box, yes, but how do you feel when you come out? Do you feel helpless? Yes, me too.
But you have never been taught about this in the government schools have you?
One of your other votes in our system is your Grand Jury Vote, but have you ever been called to be a juror on a Grand Jury? In Montana the powers that be conned the people into approving a new state Constitution in 1972 or so, and in that Constitution there is a clause that mandates that only a state district court judge can call a Grand Jury. There is great evidence to support the idea that a common law Grand Jury needs NO agent of government, which is what a judge is, to call a COMMON LAW GRAND JURY regardless of what the Montana state Constitution says. Read the links below and you will be pleasantly surprised about the power and duties of a Grand Jury to reign in those very agents of government that want you to believe that only THEY can use the Grand Jury for their own ends.

The very first thing we need to discuss are the objections that the powers that be will come with to stop the Common Law Standing Grand Jury. When you find out what the objections are you will understand why they are in absolute "shaking in their boots" panic ridden fear of a citizen operated common law Grand Jury. Here is a document that will shed some light on that subject. http://www.lincolncountywatch.org/grandjury/nolegalauthority.pdf
The next part of this subject involves some real filings and writs that outline the function and ability of a Grand Jury to command the agents of government to perform their duty according to their Oath of Office sworn before God Almighty to uphold the US Constitution.
Here is a document issued by a Common Law Grand Jury in the state of New York which covers 18 counties in that state, written to one of the judges of the Supreme Court commanding him to do his duty. This document will give you the background of the Grand Jury as the Supreme Court in Common Law. It quotes all the decisions of various courts including the US Supreme Court that show the Grand Jury is completely INDEPENDENT of government, and does not fall under the control of any court.
When an agent of government refuses to do their duty according to the oath they took to follow the Constitution there are serious consequences. One might be an indictment with charges of "official misconduct" which might carrry a fine and jail penalty, and other various charges might follow. But first the Grand Jury can simply command that agent of government to do their duty.
Here is a Writ of Mandamus from that same New York Grand Jury commanding the Chief Clerk of their Supreme Court to do her duty and file the documents. It seems that most of these people around the country fail to have an oath of office on file as they are required to do for the office to be filled. If there is no oath, the office is vacant.
One of the most revealing US Supreme Court cases was a 6 to 3 decision in 1992 where Judge Antonin Scalia outlines the basis for the Grand Jury and says that the Grand Jury IS NOT part of the government, but belongs completely to We the People. http://www.paulstramer.net/2013/12/the-grand-jury-answer-for-corruption-in.html"
If you have read this far you should understand that any so called "law" that abrogates the Constitution for the United States is NULL and VOID. Here is a link to supporting arguments:
The real question is this. Since the US Supreme court majority opinion in the Williams case confirms that the Grand Jury does not belong to either the legislative, executive, or judicial branches of government, and since Montana accepted the US Consititution as it is and was at the time Montana became a State, how can then a new clause in a new Montana Constitution put in place in 1972 put the Grand Jury under the control of a state district court judge without abrogating the compact with the United States that Montana signed when it bacame a State? Additionally, how can Montana put the Grand Jury owned by We The People under a State district court judge without violating the Bill of Rights of the US Constitution, namely the 5th and 7th Amendments, where the jury rights are reserved?
The big question then is this. IS MONTANA STILL A STATE? What is good for the goose is good for the gander. A few years back Gov. Schweitzer told the Federal government to back off on gun control because it would abrogate the compact of Montana with the United States. Doesn't that same prinicple work for this issue? How can Montana unilaterally change the Bill of Rights in the US Constitution, or ignore that compact by placing our common law Grand Jury under the control of a Judge in the Judicial Branch of the Montana government, when the US Supreme Court has reminded us all that the Grand Jury is NOT part of the government in ANY of the 3 branches, but is wholly owned by We The People, who are the sovereign in this issue under common law just as the King was the sovereign at the King's bench in England under common law. That is our tradition and history with so many precidents in law that it's difficult to list them all. Yet we continue to put up with this. How long will we let this usurpation of power and the corruption go on. Will this be solved in a peaceful manner, or will this end up going to a war? Is this still the State of Montana, or is this now the Country of Montana?http://www.paulstramer.net/2014/01/which-do-you-prefer-civil-war-or-world.html
We have stated many times that the way our country has been changed into a corporation and is being forced into admiralty and civil jurisdictions rather than the Constitutionally mandated common law, has all been done by fraud, deception, threat, duress, coercion, and intimidation, and is therefore null and void. The Writ of Mandamus is one of the solutions to this horrible situation of judicial corruption as is being exercised above. Read the writs to the judge and clerk above and then the answer to their No Legal Authority argument in the pdf files. Here are the links again.
These steps are totally lawful and are what is commanded by the 5th and 7th amendments to the US Constitution.
No person shall be held to answer for a capital, or otherwise infamous crime, unless on a presentment or indictment of a Grand Jury, except in cases arising in the land or naval forces, or in the Militia, when in actual service in time of War or public danger; nor shall any person be subject for the same offense to be twice put in jeopardy of life or limb; nor shall be compelled in any criminal case to be a witness against himself, nor be deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor shall private property be taken for public use, without just compensation.
"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 re-examined in any Court of the United States, than according to the rules of the common law."
It seems there are some very severe penalties for public officials who refuse to follow the proper procedure in dealing with presetments of a Grand Jury. You might want to review these cites from title 18 United States Code:http://www.lincolncountywatch.org/grandjury/grandjuryenforcement.pdf
