It is nothing new; Englishmen used most of this power in their
revolution of 1640; Americans used a large fraction of it in
their Revolution of 1776.
In the meantime, Americans have lost knowledge of almost all the
power available thru the right of petition.
main attribute of this right that Americans have forgotten is
that we have a right to take back power delegated to officials
when they abuse that power. I document numerous examples, in my
book The Lost Right, of how Englishmen and
Americans took back such power and made corrupt office holders
accountable for their crimes.
In other words, I show that the right of petition – by its
full power – is a historically-proven method by which to
redress grievances, to make governments accountable and, thus,
to secure rights.
But enough of this; the history, legal principals and technology
of the right of petition are available in my book.
If you want to secure your rights – and simultaneously make
governments accountable – you have to establish constitutional
assemblies. Our history books have amply demonstrated that
nothing else provides these results. Assemblies are bodies of
private men organized for the purpose of redressing every
kind of grievance: in England, such assemblies were known as
parliaments; in America, as town meetings, county meetings, and
continental congresses. A grievance is any obstacle to a
peaceful and just society that requires the concerted effort of
that society to remove that obstacle. A grievance could be the
lack of a road between point A and point B; prison abuses;
protection of borders; corruption in public offices; pollution
of rivers and lakes; the failure to investigate events of 9/11;
or a hundred others.
You may think that it would be a massive job to organize an
assembly. Yes and no.
The easy part: there are already thousands of assemblies in
existence. You see, there are probably fifty million to seventy
million people in this country right now that have some kind of
grievance against government; there are probably twenty to fifty
thousand groups that are seeking some kind of redress. All of
these groups – in fact and law – are constitutional assemblies.
There are two problems here: these groups do not know they are
assemblies, and they might be using one twentieth of the power
available to them thru the right of petition.
For example, if a group is only telling people about a
grievance – and suggests nothing beyond this, it is using only a
very small, but essential, part of the right of petition – the
right, or power, of expression. If the group suggests
time-proven futile means of redress, it is actively sabotaging
any effort for redress – regardless of intention.
The most difficult part about establishing assemblies is the
almost total lack of knowledge and experience related to the
procedures of petition. It took the English more than four
hundred years between the first public declaration of this right
(in the Magna Carta) and the first reasonable application
of it (their revolution of 1640). Relative to this knowledge,
Americans are in the pre-Magna-Carta era.
So, if you are affiliated with any group that has a grievance
against government, you are a member of a constitutional
assembly. The information in my book,
The Lost Right,
the history, law, and technology that have been erased from our
history and law books. The information in it can save you three
hundred to four hundred years of trial and error.
In other words, while some people will want to organize a new
assembly, the vast majority of people will only have to
re-organize their groups. For either case, I suggest my book as
a study guide; and that regular meetings be scheduled to discuss
or debate various chapters of it. What happens next will be a
continuation of the experiment begun in 1765.
The information in

explosive. I have uncovered three or four major treasons with
clear and well-grounded evidence – you can show my books to your
lawyer. The dandies and bandits who have captured American
governments regard my information as so dangerous that they
perpetrated a classic inquisition against me in an attempt to
silence me. They fabricated entirely groundless charges against
me (alleging that I helped organize “illegal tax shelters”);
jailed me for five months (because I refused to turn over
records of my customers); confiscated my company; fabricated
astronomically ridiculous taxes, approaching eighty millions,
against me (using customers’ property as a basis); seized my
phone number, mail address and website; erased eleven pages from
my website (as books are burned); and more.
All this was done despite the facts that there was no crime; no
evidence; no witnesses; no opportunity to examine evidence or
accuser; no trial, no jury. It was a
I like to sum up this experience by observing that, if I had
violated a law – or if my arguments were wishy-washy, or
groundless, the government would have been delighted to take
this case to trial and make a three-ring circus of it – and make
a damn fool of me. It didn’t happen; my facts and arguments are
so dangerous, the government could not allow me near a jury.
The government is trying to tell you something: I have clearly
exposed several of their major treasons – and recovered from
darkness the knowledge of redress.
