Public Election For Reinstating the Allegheny County Common Law Grand Jury


We the People will be holding an election for the reinstating of the Common Law Grand Jury here in Allegheny County at Penn Hills Library, Community Room B, 1037 Stotler Road, Penn Hills, PA 15235 on Tuesday, September 10, 2013 at 7:00pm.

There will be a 35 minute presentation starting at 7:00 PM and a vote by showing of hands  at 7:35 PM. All participants will then be invited to register for the Common Law Grand Jury.

Duty of the Grand Jury – If anyone’s unalienable rights have been violated, or removed, without a legal sentence of their peers, from their lands, home, liberties or lawful right, we [the twenty-five] shall straightway restore them. And if a dispute shall arise concerning this matter it shall be settled according to the judgment of the twenty-five Grand Jurors, the sureties of the peace. [MAGNA CARTA, JUNE 15, A.D. 1215, 52.]

Through its powers of “presentments” and “indictments” or “non-indictments,” the Grand Jury provides the most fundamental balance of power: the Power of the People to judge all three branches of government. The Grand Jury is not a branch of government. It stands on its own.
1. “Rooted in long centuries of Anglo-American history, Hannah v. Larche, 363 US 420, 490 (1960) (Frankfurter, J., concurring in result), 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 three 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 Scalia delivering the opinion of the Court, United States vs. Williams (504US36)
