Chris Wallace discredits, discounts, disowns Ron Paul

Fox News Pundit Chris Wallace told Fox news Pundit Neil Cavuto that if Ron Paul wins the Iowa caucuses it would discredit the Iowa caucuses.

"Well, the Ron Paul people are not going to like my saying this," Fox News Pundit Chris Wallace said on Fox News Pundit Neil Cavuto's show, "Your World with Neil Cavuto," and then said anyway, "but to a certain degree it will discredit the Iowa caucuses because rightly or wrongly, I think most of the Republican establishment thinks he is not going to end up as the nominee, so therefore Iowa won't count."

Forget witch hunt, Obama approves American Terrorist Hunt

Herr Obama signed a bill (NDAAFY2012) that declares American soil to be part of the worldwide battlefield in the War on Terror and any American citizen merely suspected or accused of some form of "complicity" with terrorists will be treated on that battlefield not as a citizen with rights but as an enemy combatant with no rights whatsoever.

Will 'eternal publicity' mean justice for jury rights advocate?

New Jersey Libertarian Party candidate and jury nullification advocate Julian Heicklen is fond of saying, "The price of freedom is eternal vigilance. The price of justice is eternal publicity."

Heicklen, whose Monday court appearance for "jury tampering" (the act of handing FIJA pamphlets to people in public) has been indefinitely postponed, is generating plenty of publicity.

Julian Assange and Julian Heicklen under attack

"The US government really wants Wikileaks founder Julian Assange. They’re mad at him for releasing video of the military’s murder of civilians in Iraq and more recently a list of sensitive diplomatic cables too long to get into here. A grand jury has been empaneled in Alexandria, VA to consider criminal charges against Assange. He may never be extradited to the US for trial, but what if he is?"

Statist Christian lawyer rejects Jury Rights in Ft. Worth

Local jury rights advocates encountered what they called "a total apologist for government aggression and discrimination" during their most recent outreach event on Monday.

In the Dallas/Ft. Worth area, members of Ron Paul's Campaign for Liberty - Tarrant County Meetup Group frequently take up position outside the Tarrant County Justice Center to hand out Fully Informed Jury Association (FIJA) brochures to prospective jurors.

They were about to leave after a successful day of passing out "close to 400 trifolds" when the encounter with the self-described Christian and licensed attorney began.

Jury Rights Day ~ September 5

On September 5 of this year, Fully Informed Jury Association (FIJA) activists across the nation will once again celebrate the right of jurors to render a verdict based on conscience by handing out literature, writing letters to the editor, appearing on interviews, and speaking to groups. For more information, go to www.fija.org.

September 5th marks the 338th anniversary of the trial of William Penn – a trial that laid the foundation of our First Amendment Constitutional Rights of Freedom of Religion, Freedom of Speech, and Freedom of Peaceable Public Assembly. Many Governors have signed Proclamations in recognition of Jury Rights Day.
