Stephanie Strong Speaks. And, again, I don’t think it’s going to end well.

“Constitutional scholar” Stephanie Strong popped up in the comment section tonight to offer her two cents on my post about her calling a Citizens Grand Jury:

Stephanie Strong

Well the uneducated usually post inadequate conclusions. I believe that I have said this before that Harvard opened its doors September 8 1636. Our Founding Fathers were so far more educated than our college graduates today. I believe they were probably called anarchists, as they opposed the Crown. It seems, as you watch politics today, instead of subtenant argument, we have slander and demonization. The only ignorant people out there are the ones that don’t agree with the People that are slandering other People. All ignorant people aside, do a little research on how this country was founded and why you can actually speak out.

Read that here.

Blah, blah, blah. Anyway, what got my attention was the website she was highlighting under her name, the “”  And boy, is it a doozy:

There are 3141 counties in the United States of America. Our goal is to educate and organize an election in your county to reinstate and initiate the Common Law Grand Jury. It only takes one person to organize the election at which all that attend are invited to join the pool. Each county should eventually find four people (administrators) who will work full time (paid positions) to administrate and orient the jurist. These four people should partnership with the four in each county throughout your state.


DUTY OF THE “COMMON LAW” 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.]

It is the duty of all the People to share in the governing of themselves and to secure their government by participating as a Jurist:

THINK ABOUT THIS! If we the people can reinstate Justice and demand that elected officials and bureaucrats obey the law or be indicted, we would have then succeeded in reinstating the Constitution!

Read that here.

“….demand that elected officials and bureaucrats obey the law or be indicted”   And in obey the law, they’re referring to nutty interpretations of the Magna Carta, etc. Nice!

And in case you were wondering who the state organizers for this Common Law Grand Jury are in South Dakota, they have a list.  Yup! You can find it right here:

What was that law I was citing before?

22-40-17.   Impersonating a judicial official–Misdemeanor. Any person who, without authority under the U.S. Constitution, federal law, or the constitution or laws of this state, acts as a supreme court justice, a circuit court judge, a magistrate judge, a lay magistrate, a clerk of court or deputy, a juror, or other official holding authority to determine a controversy or adjudicate the rights or interests of any other person, or signs a document in such capacity, is guilty of a Class 1 misdemeanor. It is no defense to a prosecution under this section that the judicial office that the person pretended to hold did not exist.

Read that here.

Stephanie, Good luck with your Common Law Grand Jury at Piedmont City Hall at 9:30 AM on Saturday. I have the feeling that you may need it. (Or you may at least need a defense attorney).

    This will not have a happy ending…

    Ummmm, Stephanie, the American Revolution and the Constitution are direct reactions and rejection of the combination of common law AND the monarchy system. Instead, we chose to memorialize our system in a Constitution, statutes and an independent judiciary. Very few common law principles remain and when they do they are directly or indirectly codified in law.

    It is crazy to say we are going to restore the Constitution by abrogating the constitution.

    Is it just me or does Stephanie have trouble communicating? I’m just curious if this might be one of her problems as a candidate. I usually don’t have any problem understanding the written word, but right now, not so much.

    Her inability to construct a cohesive sentence is an eye opener to say the least. What is more troubling is her sense of history. She seems to be driven by the lack of power that the GOP has when it comes to senatorial control.

    She seems to be pretty fond of this article so I’m going to copy and past a couple of things.

    “For decades now the Modern Progressive movement, spurred by the Fabian-Socialist believers, has tried to deconstruct the very fabric of that constitutional republic. The passage of the 17th amendment, electing Senators by popular vote, was one of their largest victories.”

    Really Stephanie constitutional amendments don’t just happen they are voted on for a reason. The 17th gave the voting power back to the people in the form of one man one vote, instead of those that ran the state governments.

    “Senators were supposed to represent the will of the individual State. Senators were supposed to be appointed by the leaders of each state to represent their interests.”

    “The Senate was constructed to specifically insure that when laws came from the House of Representatives they would be filtered, modified, or eliminated, by people who would look out for the best interests of individual states.”

    Now let me address what this movement is really about. Control, pure and simple control. To see their reasoning here is more from the above article.

    “Currently there are 30 Republican Governors. 19 Democrats, and one Independent.”

    “Looking at the Senatorial construct given the basis of original intent there would be 60 conservative leaning Senators, 38 Democrat Senators, and two independent Senators.”

    “That is the current political and ideological perspective that “should” exist – if we were following the construct of our Constitutional Republic. Alas, the bastardization of the Senate by the Progressive Movement’s 17th amendment – has created the very dysfunction the progs now rail against. Now Senators are bound to party ideology and not the protection of states rights as outlined in the 10th amendment.”

    “In addition, there are only 16 states where Democrats control the State Legislature:”

    “Progs do not want you to understand foundational principles, that is why they expend infinite levels of effort to indoctrinate the electorate into clouded understanding of our founding.”

    “The failure of gun control legislation was merely a reflection of the factually accurate current outlook by the majority. Progs don’t want you to know, and be armed with, that factual aspect.”

    Well there you have it. The only way they can return to the country that they loved so much is to take the power of the vote away from the very people that they want to represent.

    Now I’m not sure but I believe that would be called communism.

    Stephanie, you may be an intellegent woman. It’s to bad that it doesn’t show in your writing skills. You seem to be more of a follower then a true leader. Here’s your question for today. Who are you following?

    So much for my incoherent thoughts for today.

    The Blindman

      Talk about incoherent thoughts, you really outdid yourself. The 17th Amendment was one of the most destructive forces on our system of Federalism. As a result, it was without question the single biggest attack on states rights.

      Not only has the 17th Amendment caused a serious erosion of states rights, but it is a major contributor to what we know as pork barrel spending. Until the 17th Amendment there was a system of checks and balances that would have prevented the representatives of the people voting for pork barrel projects in the hope of re-election.

      The senate was chosen differently and represented a different constituency who would not benefit from these pet spending projects. As a result, they would have never made it past the senate. However, the 17th Amendment ensured that the senators would be elected in the SAME manner and therefore would ALSO personally and politically benefit from “pork” returned to the same voters that elected the representatives.

      The 17th Amendment did not restore the voting power to the people, it ripped the representation states enjoyed under our system of government away from them. Your comment clearly illustrates just how little our electorate understand these days. Our educational system has failed us.

    Reading these posts, I cannot believe, with no history, these are the arguments ,must have went to a public school. Wow! You should be lucky that you live in the United States of America where ignorance is tolerated. I will pray for you and I will continue to fight for your Feedom as you are about to lose it. I will do everything in my power to make sure you have your Freedom because I struggle with your ignorance.

      Reading these posts, I cannot believe, with no history, these are the arguments ,must have went to a public school.

      Is there something wrong with public schools? Are those who went to public schools some how inferior to you, Mrs Strong? You are asking for our support in this little venture of yours, then you turn around and insult the very ones you are asking support from. You dare call the American people ignorant through your arrogance.

      …I will continue to fight for your Feedom as you are about to lose it.

      Then claim you, and only you, can save us our freedom.

      I will do everything in my power to make sure you have your Freedom because I struggle with your ignorance.

      Are you sure about that?

      The only people that save American’s freedom is Americans. The people, wield the ultimate power of the ballot box. Our government has ingenious system of checks and balance, that so far has seems to work. While far from being perfect, it is a good system, that has stood the test of time.

      If Mrs. Strong wants to win support for her cause, maybe she should consider educating the people she is trying to win support from. Help them understand what they are fighting for. Not belittle them.

      Some of these TEA party types totally amazes me. First Lora Hubbel calls a press conference, then complains how the press treats her; Then Stephanie Strong comes here and tells us how ignorant we are for not supporting her.

      1. Jammer

        I know, it is like former Governor Rounds calling TEA Party conservatives “professional dissenters” and then doing an interview with the TEA Party Express asking TEA Party members to vote for him. It really is amazing.
