on Grand Juries
The late Governor Evan Mecham frequently said “the Constitution says what it means, means what it says and isn’t difficult to interpret when viewed in the light of its purpose.” He was right! Unfortunately, our organic Constitution has been intentionally misinterpreted and systematically destroyed by corrupt officials in all branches of government in an effort to ‘condition’ America for its role in the global prison known as the New World Order. It is time to put a stop to this unlawful activity and to restore our Republic. No group of people is in a better position to help do so than America’s Sheriffs. They only need to honor their oath by enforcing the Law. Friends of Liberty United and its affiliates prays each of them will do so and act to support this position paper.
America is suffering because of a lack of obedience to the law, both temporal and spiritual. It is only if we again choose to obey both sets of law upon which our nation was founded that we can have hope for our Republic’s survival.
Friends of Liberty United suggests everyone adopt the following Resolution as their position.
********** begin resolution **********
WHEREAS the Declaration of Independence identifies government’s purpose as being to secure for Americans their unalienable Rights to Life, Liberty, and an opportunity to pursue Happiness, and
WHEREAS any Act by government that has diminished or destroyed a person’s ability to enjoy an unalienable Right is an illegal Act and those responsible for it and its perpetuation are criminals guilty of crimes found in Title 18 of the U.S. Criminal Code, and
WHEREAS Friends of Liberty United accepts this fact as a litmus test for its interpretation of the Constitution and in determining the legitimacy of government acts, and
WHEREAS the Bill of Rights was quickly appended to the Constitution by the framers to clarify what they considered unalienable Rights not to be infringed upon by the government, and
WHEREAS a highly important Right is the use of grand juries which Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia wrote about saying “the whole theory of a grand jury’s function is that it belongs to no branch of the institutional Government, serving as a kind of buffer or referee between the Government and the people”, and
WHEREAS the use of grand juries to serve their intended purpose must include those initiated by ‘we the people’, and
WHEREAS Friends of Liberty United finds the current practice of the judicial system ignoring the product of such grand juries to be repugnant to the Constitution and that those who made this decision had no legitimate power to do so, and
WHEREAS the U.S. Supreme Court ruled in Miranda vs Arizona that “Where rights secured by the Constitution are involved, there can be no rule making of legislation which would abrogate them” and in Marbury vs Madison that “All laws repugnant to the Constitution are null and void”, and
WHEREAS in American Communications Association vs Douds the Supreme Court said “It is not the function of our government to keep the citizen from falling into error; it is the function of the citizen to keep the gov’t from falling into error”, and
WHEREAS the County Sheriffs in forty nine of the fifty states (Alaska excluded as it has no elected county Sheriffs) are the only directly elected Constitutional law enforcement officer responsible for keeping the peace and enforcing the Law within their jurisdiction, and
WHEREAS six states of the fifty States (Kansas, Nebraska, Nevada, New Mexico, North Dakota, and Oklahoma) have provisions within their existing laws that provide for the summoning of Citizen Grand Juries, and
WHEREAS Clause 1 of the Fourteenth Amendment to the Constitution of the United States guarantees “equal protection under the laws” of all persons it follows that even absent particular laws within the other forty-four States the people of every State to have the ability to summon Peoples Grand Juries, and
WHEREAS Rule 6 of the Federal Rules of Criminal Procedure concerning grand juries as amended to December 1, 2019 obviously applies to the Federal Courts and not to other levels of Courts thereby leaving open the option for Peoples Grand Juries, and
WHEREAS the right of the People to use the tool of Grand Juries has existed since June 15, 1215 in Articles 52 and 61 of the Magna Carta, therefore
BE IT RESOLVED the position of Friends of Liberty United and associated organizations is that America’s Sheriffs should: 1. urge their constituents to use grand juries to hold elected and appointed officials, including judges, accountable with the knowledge the law will be upheld within their jurisdiction, 2. ask that every able bodied person in their jurisdiction who is proficient in the use of a weapon volunteer to be available to be deputized should the need arise to uphold the law within their jurisdiction, 3. tell their constituents of the need for unity on many actions required to restore the Republic and the rule of law throughout America and that Friends of Liberty United is the only entity known that has a current COMPREHENSIVE plan to create a force of UNIFIED groups working together on common goals while assuring that all groups and individuals have the freedom to pursue their own issues.

“Today we need a nation of minute men; citizens who are not only prepared to take up arms, but citizens who regard the preservation of freedom as a basic purpose of their daily life and who are willing to consciously work and sacrifice for that freedom.” – President JFK, 1963
Patriot’a Declaration of Demands
The cliché that ‘one must stand for something to avoid falling for anything‘ is true. Though most Americans agree “Federal action has exceeded the clear bounds of its jurisdiction under the Constitution and thus violated rights guaranteed the people”, as 30 governors alleged on 11/22/94, and on the need “to restore to the states and the people the prerogatives and freedoms guaranteed them under the Constitution”, as they pledged to do, this goal remains elusive. Could it be because they failed to be specific in what they want and/or the lack of an organized resistance?
On 10/25/10 Glen Beck said the Washington Post referred to the ‘Tea Party’ as “a movement without a compass”. Is it really a “movement” or some sincere Americans who understand America is headed in the wrong direction and in need of a course change but have no viable plan for changing it?
When the British Captain of the Serapis suggested Admiral John Paul Jones surrender Admrial Jones replied “I have not yet begun to fight!“. So it is with America’s patriots. We have no recognized leadership or plan; a recipe for disaster. Perhaps POGO said it best; “we have met the enemy and he is us.”
Historically, Americans have gathered around special interests such as gun control, abortion, monetary and fiscal policy, immigration, etc. Though important issues, they are SYMPTOMS of our problem and SYMPTOMS can’t be solved! This has stifled development of a “collective effort by a large number of people to try to achieve something” (a movement). Perhaps if ’Tea Partiers’ ‘occupiers’, truckers, ‘oathkeepers’, Constitutionalists, motorcyclists, Sheriffs, veterans, and others trying to get government’s attention would adopt a “Declaration of Demands” identifying specific demands they want satisfied a movement would evolve. Such a Declaration could help people avoid squandering their time and money on addressing symptoms and would provide a ‘yardstick’ for judging political candidates. It is the position of Friends of Liberty United that the following demands are to be pursued:
1. Government officials must accept that:
a. Government was created for the purpose of securing people’s unalienable Rights to Life, Liberty and an opportunity to pursue happiness.
b. no government official(s) has – or has ever had – lawful authority to alter this purpose and any any Act by government that has diminished or destroyed anyone’s ability to enjoy a Right is unlawful and those responsible for its passage and perpetuation are guilty of one or more crimes cited in Title 18 of the US Criminal Code.!
c. the evidence showing Federal action has exceeded its delegated authority is clear and abundant leaving two possibilities; 1. the Constitution has been illegally replaced as the Supreme Law or 2. those responsible for the unlawful “action” are guilty of usurping their delegated authority and are criminals.
d. President Kennedy was right when he said in 1962 that: “Those who make peaceful resolution impossible will make violent revolution inevitable.”
e. the Constitution’s 10th Amendment saying “the powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution …. are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people” is incontestable evidence that the only lawful powers of the Federal Government are those specifically enumerated in the Constitution.
f. the U. S. Supreme Court was correct in saying: “This Court has regularly and uniformly recognized the supremacy of the Constitution over a treaty” and “it would be manifestly contrary to the objectives of those who created the Constitution, let alone alien to our Constitutional history and tradition to construe Article 6 as permitting the United States to exercise power under an international agreement without observing Constitutional prohibitions.” (Reid vs Covert); “a law repugnant to the Constitution is void.” (Marbury vs Madison); and “Where rights secured by the Constitution are involved, there can be no rule making legislation which would abrogate them.” (Miranda vs Arizona).
g. States, as the Principals to the Constitution and under the Law of Agency, hold the ultimate responsibility and authority for assuring its proper interpretation and implementation.
2. To Make America Great Again America must be in control of its own destiny. Americans have a right to govern themselves; a right destroyed through illegal ‘Federal action’. To correct the actions we demand:
a. The U.N.’s mission be revised or America’s U.N. membership terminated! It’s essential the U.N. be but a forum for discussing issues of international concern and that the U.N. Charter and sovereignty destroying treaties and organizations it has spawned be nullified or repealed.
b. The Federal Reserve System’s policy of monetizing debt must be replaced with one meeting constitutional intent as it’s impossible to be sovereign while indebted to others. To restore a sound economy, we demand a National Economic Recovery Program be instituted that will:
* amend, alter, or repeal the Federal Reserve Act as authorized under SECTON 31 of the Act and return America to a non interest bearing, non repayable medium of exchange meeting the spirit of the Constitution’s Art. 1, Sec. 8:5.
* abolish some and restructure the remaining un payable debt of over $100 trillion resulting from our current unconstitutional and un Godly monetary policy.
* resurrect the American System of Economic Independence.
* develop and implement a tax system meeting constitutional intent.
* institute a program leading to America’s energy independence.
* provide a “soft landing” for those dependent on today’s socialist system.
* downsize government to where it operates within its powers authorized by the Constitution.
3. We demand States support our goal by:
a. assuring they aren’t eliminated through a Constitutional Convention or being declared bankrupt.
b. Recognizing they aren’t satrapies of the Federal government and as Principals to the Constitution, States are responsible for its proper interpretation and implementation and that they have a fiduciary responsibility to do so.
c. appointing an ad-hoc committee to identify federal actions “exceeding the clear bounds of its jurisdiction under the Constitution” and assuring those responsible for all such actions are held accountable under the law.
d. recognizing the fraudulent nature of the17th amendment, that fraud has no statute of limitations, that all federal actions taken since the illegal adoption of the 17th Amendment are – in law – null and void and that states should act to assure federal senators again represent the state.
e. removing the Federal government from the state’s educational process, establishing a curriculum providing students true American history, and providing students handouts to not only educate them but also their parents and neighbors.
f. assuring the Emergency Powers Act of 3/9/33 that made Americans the official enemies of the Federal government and gave it reason to declare a perpetual state of war and authority to operate under Emergency Powers permitting the President to function as a dictator via Executive Orders, Presidential Decision Directives, etc. be nullified.
g. passing legislation that will assure votes are counted as cast.
h. assuring Constitutionalists have access to public broadcasting facilities within their state so there can be open and honest debate on significant issues.
i. passing a law requiring a true bill issued by a Grand Juries authorized in the Bill of Rights be litigated by a trial jury having full powers of subpoena and unrestricted access to evidence of its choosing when supported by a petition signed by 5,000 voters,
j. assuring every government official is constitutionally qualified for her/his office.
k. assuring an honest and thorough investigation into the events surrounding 9/11.
l. using their powers of intercession and nullification to reject unlawful Federal acts resulting from a deliberate and erroneous interpretation of the Constitution.
4. We respectfully demand our law enforcement personnel – both civilian and military – recognize and honor their oath of office requiring them to uphold the Constitution of 1787.
Conclusions – Whether the violations to our organic Constitution government are premeditated criminal acts, an erroneous interpretation of the Constitution’s “commerce” and “general welfare” clauses, the application of the adopted though never properly ratified 14th Amendment , the emergency Presidential power rooted in the intentional bankruptcy of America or some other nefarious activity the facts are:
1. fulfilling the Republican governor’s pledge requires the intent of the Constitution’s authors be enforced.
2. enforcing Constitutional intent will require efficient and effective action by millions of people working as a team (movement) which can best – and perhaps only – be realized through a plan providing unity, not in body, but on significant actions of mutual interest while assuring everyone involved retains their freedom to pursue their special interests.
3. these demands or a similar set could serve as a catalyst around which people will rally and as a basis for unity on actions having the potential “to restore to the states and the people the prerogatives and freedoms guaranteed them under the Constitution.”
4. America’s foremost problem is people’s failure to understand the importance of, and to honor James 4:17 saying “to him that knoweth to do good, and doeth it not, to him it is sin.”
5. Though the United States was established as a Christian nation over 99% of our so called ‘churches’ are not first amendment churches but incorporated businesses in violation of the first commandment. It is doubtful God will again ‘bless America’ so long as this violation continues. To again enjoy God’s blessing we must have a national repentance and elect God fearing people having the knowledge, courage, and integrity needed to return America to its biblically based foundation.
Above all, Americans must unite in spirit and meaningful action for as Medori Severi said: “until we abandon our manifold private agendas and unite, we will merely be hapless observers standing at the bottom of a dark, deep pit, wistfully hoping to save the world, but really doing little more than breaking the fall of compatriots who are pushed in on top of us. Only by uniting in a common effort devoid of subjective paradigms will we be able to mold the human spirit upon which we may ascend to freedom…..”
Americans must rally around a set of demands and improve their efficiency and effectiveness by “teaming up” as described for the benefit of all mankind. If organized as a team, we the concerned could easily bypass the controlled media, recall wayward officials, assure compliance with the rule of law, and more.
America’s greatest needs are people willing to do whatever it takes to restore our Republic and who are armed with a viable plan and the tools to implement it.
It is highly suggested every American visit www.friendsoflibertyunited.com, study the organizational structure to find where their time and talent can best be applied, join the FOLU team and get to work.
A RESOLUTION by FRIENDS of LIBERTY UNITED (FOLU)
A Position Paper/Resolution regarding application of the Supreme Law
Whereas, America’s Supreme Law consists of the policies and procedures cited in the Declaration of Independence, Constitution of 1787, and Bill of Rights, and
Whereas “We the People” including America’s law enforcement personnel slept while enemies of our Constitution in government were at work unlawfully undermining our Supreme Law, and
Whereas this treasonous activity has resulted in Americans now being governed by the principals and procedures found in the ten planks of the Communist Manifesto, and
Whereas the Declaration of Independence says “Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, –That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it……….”, and
Whereas the Federal government, via the Emergency Banking Act of March 9, 1933 (PL 73-1, 48 Stat. 1) applied the Trading with the Enemy Act enacted on October 6, 1917 to “We the People” and declared us to be its official enemy in defiance of its “just powers”, and
Whereas the Federal government then began transforming our Republic into a nation-state of a New World Order (NWO) defined as “a world that has a supranational authority to regulate world commerce and industry, an international organization that would control the production and consumption of oil; an international currency that would replace the dollar; a world development fund that would make funds available to free and communist nations alike; and an international police force to enforce the edicts of the New World Order;” through a series of systematic and unlawful actions, and
Whereas this NWO, by definition, is a global prison whose ’warden’ is an Imperial Oligarchy that has led America to the brink of a rightful civil war pitting “We the People” against the elected and appointed officials pretending to represent us but who, in reality, have represented the financial/industrial cartel who they sold out to, and
Whereas a peaceful restoration of our Republic rests in meaningful actions; some of which must be taken by America’s Sheriffs who are under oath to uphold the Constitution; not some unconstitutional legislative act, statute or judicial decree and who have a fiduciary responsibility to assure “We the People” are able to enjoy our unalienable Rights, and
Whereas it’s self-evident Americans must unite, collectively determine for themselves the legality of a government Act, statute or judicial decree by determining if it diminished or destroyed anyone’s ability to enjoy an unalienable Right (a litmus test), and insisting their Sheriffs join them in saying the unlawfulness in government has gone to far and in doing whatever is required to hold those responsible for an unlawful Act and its perpetuation accountable by applying the laws cited in Title 18 of the U.S. Criminal Code. This is needed to reset our Republic on its lawful foundation, and
Whereas it is essential these actions be taken to prevent America’s demise and to reestablish it as a nation of laws Friends of Liberty United has taken these positions:
- FOLU must provide Americans a plan through which they can enjoy the blessings of unity on actions of mutual concern while assuring everyone involved retains their freedom to pursue their special concerns and the tools and leadership needed to implement the plan.
- In cooperation with their Sheriffs, united Americans must identify the most important unlawful actions by which government has transformed their Republic into an ungodly and lawless nation.
- United Americans must exercise civil obedience to the Supreme Law, take whatever action is required to assure it is adhered to, and begin holding those responsible for dismantling our lawful government accountable;
Therefore, to prepare for the enforcement of our Supreme Law it is FOLU’s position that every Sheriff should:
- Notify their constituents of the need for civil obedience to the Supreme Law which means civil disobedience to the unlawful laws they are now being ruled by; that this obedience might precipitate violence by the criminals pretending to represent us, and that in order to prepare to counter this violence they need to assure every able bodied person in their county that has a weapon and is proficient in its use be on standby to be deputized to help enforce the Supreme Law.
- Give the criminals pretending to be representing “We the People” a notice of demand to initiate action needed to restore lawful government and a time line for doing so to avoid being arrested. Several of the needed actions can be found in https://friendsoflibertyunited.com/?page_id=332.
- Inform the members of the judicial system that if they try to circumvent the Supreme Law they will be treated as an enemy of our Constitution, arrested, and tried under the common law authorized by the Bill of Rights.
FOLU prays this letter helps inspire the reader to act for the time has come when law abiding God fearing Americans must exercise their Rights. We must respectfully disobey unlawful Acts and do whatever it takes to restore our Republic. The alternative is to relegate it to a page in history.
Should you (the reader) need additional information regarding our Republic’s restoration please visit www.friendsoflibertyunited.com. FOLU requests that any Sheriff lacking the courage and integrity needed to honor their oath resign for there have been few times in history when the need to do what is right has been greater.
Following are two pertinent quotes by President John F. Kennedy.
“There are risks and costs to a program of action. But they are far less than the long-range risks and costs of comfortable inaction….”
“Those who make peaceful resolution impossible will make violent revolution inevitable.”
A Friends of Liberty United Position/Action Paper regarding Affidavits
BACKGROUND – Jack and Margy Flynn, founders of http://citizensoftheamericanconstitution.net briefed the Friends of Liberty United (FOLU) National Leadership Team (NLT) on 10-14-20 regarding the power of Affidavits.
By definition, an Affidavit/Declaration of Truth is a written statement of true charges, claims, averments and accusations confirmed by oath of affirmation for use as evidence in court. In signing an affidavit, its proponent, the Affiant, is declaring what she or he has concluded to be one or more undeniable truths based on truth, facts, valid law, and evidence. If the affidavit is directed at making an accusation against an individual or business (hereafter called respondent), then, pursuant to the lawful notification contained in the affidavit, the respondent must rebut the charges and claims set forth in the Affiant’s Affidavit/Declaration of Truth, which charges are supported by truth, fact, valid law and evidence.
It is usually impossible for the respondent to rebut the Affiant’s charges, in kind, and specifically, by means of the respondent’s own sworn, notarized affidavit, within a specified period of time, with respondent’s rebuttals supported by truth, fact, valid law and evidence. An unrebutted affidavit stands as fact and truth before any court and any public body. Since the respondent was provided the opportunity to rebut but failed to so, the respondent is tacitly admitting to all of the charges and claims contained in Affiant’s Affidavit/Declaration of Truth, fully binding upon respondent in any court, without his protest or objection and that of those who represent him, and is accepted as such.
The proponent (Affiant) of the affidavit must then file an affidavit of complaint with the original affidavit attached thereto. The affidavit of complaint is then submitted to a Sheriff for action.
In light of the success the use of affidavits has enjoyed, FOLU hereby adopts the position that FOLU chapters at all levels should use them as deemed necessary and appropriate in helping to advance the restoration of law and order in America. Help in preparing affidavits is available from FOLU’s Lawful Initiative Team.
A FOLU Position Paper on Election Integrity
The FOLU position on Election Integrity is quite simple – Honesty and Transparency are the two pillars necessary for the election process to be trusted. FOLU believes that any action which diminishes the full effectiveness of either of these pillars is worthy of the full impact of the justice department prosecuting to the fullest extent of the law. It does not matter who, or which political party, is involved in the fraud or other harmful action.
FOLU will develop some action plan items that can be employed by our local teams that will keep the light of exposure on the perpetrators, and the strategy is to KEEP the action plans going until there is some remedy in the cases!
Circumstances have necessitated the need to develop such plans NOW… The “True the Vote” effort will be developed and implemented AS SOON AS POSSIBLE! Look under ‘Tools’ – ‘Other Helpful Tools’- for ‘True the Vote’ button.
