2,000 researchers observed the Rod Class Washington, DC Gun Case determined to answer this question:
What Foundational Law underpins the current Judicial System in the United States?
The case was heard in the UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA. UNITED STATES OF AMERICA was the Plaintiff. RODNEY CLASS was the Defendant. Case Number Criminal Action 13 – 253.
The first question the scholars wanted to know is how UNITED STATES OF AMERICA could bring a criminal charge against a civilian. There is no Constitutional mandate of any kind to allow any Court to charge a civilian with a criminal offense. Who is the injured party, and why is he being charged on a DC city ordinance that was already ruled unconstitutional? A criminal charge, according to the rules, has to be heard before a “Jury of his peers.”
By what authority did UNITED STATES OF AMERICA presume any jurisdiction over a civilian? Further, WHICH ENTITY was bringing the charge?
Most people miss the significance of this study. Let me explain. The researchers were legal and law scholars. They knew the rules and regulations under which the Judiciary are mandated to act, according to the Constitution, according to American Jurisprudence, and according to their own Fiduciary duties as defined by their Job Description in various legislative acts, congressional records, and Statutory Law. Many were well-versed in Contract Law, UCC Law, Trust and Equity Law, Common Law, Natural Law, even Ecclesiastical and Canon Law. Most had a working understanding of the Rules of Probate. Many were well-versed in the Laws of War, the Leiber Code, the War Powers Act, and more. Most understood the difference between Admiralty Law, Roman Civil Law, Jurisprudence, and Common Law.
None of the researchers were lawyers. They were not under Oath to the British Accreditation Registry (BAR Association). They were impartial observers intent on understanding what form of law was in operation in the DC Court room, whether or not the Court Officers followed their own Rules, and what Jurisdiction and Venue they claimed as their authority over a civilian population.
There were some major surprises. The conclusions were devastating to the American people. It explains why the prison population of America has exploded. It explains why there is no remedy and no relief, and why Pro Se litigants only win 3% of the time. It explains the explosion in foreclosure cases where many have lost their homes while the banks and their cronies create millions off of the paperwork. It explains why Child Support Enforcement often ends in Debtor’s Prison for those unable to make their payments. It explains why a simple traffic violation can land people in prison, or result in exorbitant fines, or support a rather large outgrowth of “supported services” like probation officers, for-profit prisons, ankle bracelets, DUI schools, and more.
BRIEF SUMMARY OF THE CASE
Rod Class is a teacher who can quote Statutory Law, Constitutional Law, Military Law, Common Law and more, with precise definitions and full understanding of any paperwork a Prosecutor could put before him. He was arrested on a routine visit to the capital to visit his Congressional Representative. He parked in his usual spot, and when he returned to his jeep he found it surrounded by numerous law enforcement personnel who informed him that the spot had been posted offlimits parking since his last visit. Rod Class has a Concealed Carry permit from the State of North Carolina. He has a Congressional appointment as a Private Attorney General, and is a designated Constitutional Bounty Hunter whose main duty is to hold Public Officials accountable. He had no weapon of any kind on his person. They were in a gun locker in his jeep. Yet he was charged with two violations of a DC City Ordinance that has been ruled unconstitutional by the Supreme Court. The charge was serious, carrying a 10-year prison sentence and a possible fine of $250,000.
The bizarre case that unfolded is typical of current-day courtroom behavior in the USA. Except for one thing: a trained group of observers could document exactly how and in what manner the various Court Officers violated the rules of conduct that laid out their duties and responsibilities, and the Rules of the Court. Class filed the evidence of their errors into the Court record. The Judge found ways to deny the filing, even though this is a violation of due process and makes any court official who has participated in such attempts at evidence suppression guilty of numerous crimes.
The most significant point is that Rod Class acted as his own counsel, but as a Third Party Intervenor. Class, the Civilian, represented the GOVERNMENT COPYRIGHT TRADEMARK NAME RODNEY DALE CLASS. Some people refer to this entity as “The Strawman.” It is the corporate fiction created by the birth event recorded by the Department of Health/Vital Statistics and transferred to the Administrative Agents who supervise the Bankruptcy under the Emergency Banking Act of 1933.
HOW the birth registration creates the methods used by the various Administrative Agencies to “harvest the resources” of the “human capital” under their management is at issue in this case.
This was a detailed study carried out over a two-year period.
Class is best known for his North Carolina Ruling in 2010-2011 that got two Judges to admit on the public record that the Agents working for the STATE OF NORTH CAROLINA were NOT Public Officials but were in fact, private entities, Corporations. Even the elected Governor was not under the Executive Branch, and therefore not classified as a Public Official answerable to the people of the State
I was one of those Researchers. Here’s what we learned:
1. When Judge Kessler warned Rod Class he had to know their rules and their laws in order to represent himself in her courtroom, Rod challenged her to reveal what law was in operation in the courtroom. He filed the Constitution, the complete annotated book of Federal Rules of Criminal Procedure, and the local rules of the court into the case record. He also brought up American Jurisprudence.
2. Judge Kessler was removed from the case, the second Judge to fall under the relentless onslaught of Class’s efforts to hold them accountable to their own rules. Two prosecutors had already left the case
3. The buck stopped with the arrival of Chief Judge Roberts. So did any semblance that any Rule of Law would be followed in the DC Gun Case. Stunned observers were left with one irrefutable conclusion:
a. Chief Judge Roberts was presiding over a War Crimes Tribunal. USC 50- War and National Defense – Chapter 3, Section 23 carries the only Judicial reference that would allow a Judge to continue to prosecute a gun charge that the Supreme court had already ruled on more than one occasion was unconstitutional.
b. The ONLY EXPLANATION for a vehicle violation to turn into a criminal felony charge with such severe penalties was a BREACH OF THE PEACE DURING A TIME OF WAR.
c. It slowly dawned on the observers that ALL TRAFFIC VIOLATIONS, ALL HOME FORECLOSURE CASES, ALL CHILD SUPPORT ENFORCEMENT CHARGES, ANY CIVIL CASE THAT CARRIES A CRIMINAL PENALTY falls under the Laws of War.
d. The population of America was “captured” in 1933, converted to Enemies of the State by the Amendatory Act of 1933 (Trading with the Enemy/War Powers Act), all their property had been “conscripted for the War Effort” and they were no longer treated as civilians of an occupied territory. They were enemies of the Corporations posing as governments and they were being tricked into jail.
e. The SOURCE DOCUMENTS put all this into perspective as the case unfolded. HOW the American people have been pirated and plundered by the Courts and put in jail so that for-profit prisons can proliferate was more than the Researchers could handle at times.
f. Under the War Powers Act, during a National Emergency, anyone deemed a “war criminal” was subject-to the Jurisdiction of a Martial Military Procedure with no rights nor remedies available to anyone so charged. It appears that anyone who claims to be a “US CITIZEN” as the court defines that term is a WAR CRIMINAL subject to their jurisdiction.
4. The observers were horrified as this mild-mannered Southern Gentleman was literally kidnapped from the VA hospital, shackled, and thrown in jail for 21 days for a “contempt of court” charge that could not then be explained.
5. The observers were surprised that Karen Hudes appeared at the Court hearing, and visited Rod Class in jail. He was told by Hudes that “the people could not expect the criminal justice system to reform 100%. They would be lucky if it reached a 70% level of fairness.” In other words, Class standing up to “The System” would result in more harassment for him and his followers.
6. Prior to his last appearance, all the paperwork from the active case was sealed, and a new case by the same number, but adding the initials of the Judge, was introduced, hoping that Class would not notice that the case had been “superseded” and a substitution made.
a. Hint: 2000 observers downloading both sides of all the paperwork now know the truth – with such devastating evidence of prosecutors tampering with definitions, tampering with the Grand Jury, and Judges nullifying the right to Trial By Jury. Not to mention proof that Class was being treated as a WAR CRIMINAL.
7. Class noticed the new case number, clarified that a change had been made, but was forced to accept a “plea agreement” if he was to ever get out of jail.
8. The observers watched an out-of-control system use force, fear and fraud as their only “authority.”
There was not even an attempt to follow the Rule of Law. Instead, the Judges and Prosecutors acted like war profiteers drunk on their own power.
NOW THAT WE KNOW THE UNVARNISHED TRUTH, WHAT CAN WE DO ABOUT IT?
1. 45 Court Observers filed in SF-95 Criminal complaints to document the procedural and due-process violations in the DC Court Case. The problem is, of course, that the same people in charge of the Court System oversee the complaints. Some will be heard, some have already been denied, one has been set for a hearing. It is a convoluted process not for the faint of heart.
2. Our Research Teams have started a massive educational campaign to fully expose the Criminal Nature of the System of Corporations posing as Governments who hold our courts hostage.
a. This includes documenting THE SOURCE DOCUMENTS that Rod Class references in his court filings and in his teaching. Link to Steve’s report
b. Financial Corruption is endemic in court actions, and is well-documented as other Researchers have joined the effort.
c. Judicial corruption is so widespread that the Judges believe they are above the Rule of Law. They are not held accountable because there is nobody with the power to challenge them. See Dr. Richard Cordero’s Report on Judicial Corruption. (link to report)
3. The International Tribunal for Natural Justice is a natural outgrowth of the Court Watcher Project. Researchers, Judicial Reform advocates, and others came together to look for solutions and concluded that it is not possible to fix a system that is so fundamentally corrupt. It must be replaced with Natural Justice and a peaceful means to live together without the use of force and violence to impose wicked games upon the people.
4. This Court is international in scope. The foundation has been laid to open an office in the USA, one in London, UK, one in Australia and Norfolk Island, and one in South Africa.
5. We have cases coming in from around the world as the people learn there is an independent body willing to hold the agents who do the bidding of their criminal masters without conscience accountable for the harm done.
6. Exposing the methods used by the Courts to claim authority over the people is the first step. These rogue agents have no more authority than a Security Guard at Wal-Mart. When the people fully understand the mind game that has been played upon them, they will be so shocked that they will do whatever it takes to create a truly fair and equitable justice system. That system does not currently exist within the Courts run by the Rogue Corporations who have taken over through use of extreme violence and force.
WHAT WILL IT TAKE TO GET THIS INTERNATIONAL TRIBUNAL FULLY OPERATIONAL?
It will take the people getting behind this effort. We need your support in numerous ways.
1. SEND US YOUR CASES. The procedures are on the ITNJ site that tell you how to apply to bring a case before the Tribunal.
2. Sign the ITNJ Treaty. The more who sign, the more clout we have to be a force for good within the International Community.
3. BE ONE OF THE FIRST DONORS TO FUND THIS OPERATION! If just 10,000 people would pledge $25.00 a month for one year, that would give us the working capital to seat a full office in the USA, in London, UK, in Australia and Norfolk Island, and open a branch in South Africa.
4. Your immediate donation will allow us to hold the Inaugural Ceremony simultaneously in the United States and in London, UK, on June 15, 2015, the day the Magna Carta was signed 800 years ago at Runnymede.
5. We need more volunteers. The volunteers have put in many, many hours to get this project so that the foundational structures are in place to move forward with all due speed.
a. We need Judges with integrity in all countries willing to serve,
b. wordpress experts to help us man the five websites that this project has already spawned, and
c. people willing to donate or participate in the various trainings that will help them prepare for more civic responsibility.
6. Become educated in the workings of the Law.
a. When we turned our courts over to the Lawyers, we lost many generations of civic-minded individuals who knew the law and who could act as a safeguard to protect our liberty.
b. It is not that difficult to learn Natural Law, and
c. to get a foundation in the history of government, and
d. to learn why massive change is needed.
It will take the people willing to fund this project with a monthly donation to take it to the next step. We have the foundation in place. We have the proof needed to make it easy for you to understand the mind-game that has been played upon the people. The next step is up to you.
