NEW YORK IS “GROUND ZERO” – Major grassroots movement in 48 States, Constituting Common Law Grand Juries. In a
stunning six to three, 1992 Decision that went unnoticed, until now, Justice Antonin Scalia writing for the majority said:
In the Supreme Court case of United States v. Williams, 112 S.Ct. 1735, 504 U.S. 36, 118 L.Ed.2d 352 (1992), Justice
Antonin Scalia, writing for the majority, confirmed that the American grand jury is neither part of the judicial, executive
nor legislative branches of government, but instead belongs to the people. It is in effect a fourth branch of government
“governed” and administered to directly by and on behalf of the American people, and its authority emanates from the
Bill of Rights, the acts of the Grand Jury is the consent of the people.
“The grand jury is mentioned in the Bill of Rights, but not in the body of the Constitution. It has not been textually
assigned, therefore, to any of the branches described in the first three Articles. It ” ‘is a constitutional fixture in its own
right. In fact the whole theory of its 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”. — Justice Antonin Scalia
“Thus, citizens have the unbridled right to empanel their own grand juries and present “True Bills” of indictment to a
court, which is then required to commence a criminal proceeding. Our Founding Fathers presciently thereby created a
“buffer” the people may rely upon for justice, when public officials, including judges, criminally violate the law.” —
Justice Antonin Scalia
“The grand jury is an institution separate from the courts, over whose functioning the courts do not preside, we think it
clear that, as a general matter at least, no such “supervisory” judicial authority exists. The “common law” of the Fifth
Amendment demands a traditional functioning grand jury.” — Justice Antonin Scalia
“Although the grand jury normally operates, of course, in the courthouse and under judicial auspices, its institutional
relationship with the judicial branch has traditionally been, so to speak, at arm’s length. Judges’ direct involvement in
the functioning of the grand jury has generally been confined to the constitutive one of calling the grand jurors together
and administering their oaths of office. The grand jury’s functional independence from the judicial branch is evident
both in the scope of its power to investigate criminal wrongdoing, and in the manner in which that power is exercised.”
— Justice Antonin Scalia
“The grand jury ‘can investigate merely on suspicion that the law is being violated, or even because it wants assurance
that it is not.’ It need not identify the offender it suspects, or even “the precise nature of the offense” it is investigating.
The grand jury requires no authorization from its constituting court to initiate an investigation, nor does the prosecutor
require leave of court to seek a grand jury indictment. And in its day-to-day functioning, the grand jury generally
operates without the interference of a presiding judge. It swears in its own witnesses and deliberates in total secrecy.” –
– Justice Antonin Scalia
“Recognizing this tradition of independence, we have said the 5th Amendment’s constitutional guarantee presupposes
an investigative body ‘acting independently of either prosecuting attorney or judge” — Justice Antonin Scalia
“Given the grand jury’s operational separateness from its constituting court, it should come as no surprise that we have
been reluctant to invoke the judicial supervisory power as a basis for prescribing modes of grand jury procedure. Over
the years, we have received many requests to exercise supervision over the grand jury’s evidence-taking process, but we
have refused them all. “it would run counter to the whole history of the grand jury institution” to permit an indictment
to be challenged “on the ground that there was incompetent or inadequate evidence before the grand jury.” — Justice
Antonin Scalia

    The one thing that i remember the most clearly over the past 40 years of my school days at Brandeis University in 1970’s are my student adviser’s words that when he was growing up that his grand parents and parents used the term “‘goyishe kup,’” meaning that the “Non-Jews are Stupid”
    Later in life I learned that the exact translation of “GOYISHE KUP” means that the “Cattle are STUPID”..
    I remember him recalling what his father told him when he was growing up in Eastern Europe. One of them being that when his father was in high school he and a group of friends would skip school early on Fridays and go over to his friend’s father’s butcher shop. That they would buy at cost any cows , that had not been butchered by the end of the day on Friday before the start of Shabat . They would take the cow home and wash it and then the boys would procede to “beat the udders of the cows so that they would swell up and turn pink” so as to sell them to the “GOYISHE KUP” as milk producing cows.
    The part that I remember him asking me if the East Europeans are so “naive, so gullible and so stupid” to buy an old “non milk producing cows” from a bunch of young Jewish Boys.
    So re-thinking of it now I agree with the Jewish saying that the “GOYISHE KUP” are indeed” Stupid” as they believe that a Bunch of Arab Moslem Kids who were not able to Fly a Cessna Airplane took it upon themselves to FLY a Jumbo 747 and outwitted the US Military and Civilian authorities. The “Jewish Lightning Insurance Scam” of the 1960’s is still alive and well has been put to good use by Larry Silverstein in putting 15 million down and getting 7 billion dollars for buildings that no one wanted to buy because it would have cost a billion dollars to remove the asbestos from. Then on top of that the people in America actually believe that they actually decide who is elected President or for that that actual VOTE is really counted and makes a difference in deciding who represents them in the White House and congress.

    Oy Veh, I agree that the American Non-Jews are indeed “GOYISHE KUP” or “STUPID CATTLE”!
