Judicial Review is the power to examine and invalidate actions of the legislative and executive branches. It's important to remember that The Supreme Court granted itself this power. It is NOT found within the Constitution and it allows the Court to MAKE Laws (only Congress can make laws). In other words, It is UNCONSTITUTIONAL (Is the fox guarding the henhouse?) Every power not allowed in the Constitution is reserved to the States (Amendment X)
The federal government routinely violates constitutionally protected rights - of both its citizens and the states making up the union. Click above for a full explaniation. The problem can be remedied. But, first we must first understand how we got into this mess in the first place.

The Supreme Court can only try APPEALS and decide on individual, specific cases. NOWHERE in our Constitution, or anywhere else, has the Supreme Court been given the Power to MAKE LAW, nor to NULLIFY any law, It ILLEGALLY gave ITSELF that Power!
The Grand Jury is an essential part of our Government. It stands APART from the other 3 Branches and Separate from the Courts! The COMMON LAW Grand Jury was the original, but our "laws & lawyers" essentially REMOVED it over time, but Now, it is comming back. Here is a "letter", by Carl Swensson, that describes it in detail, along with a Response by Judge Paul Nally that further clarifies it. Grand Jury (Common Law) Handbook for Sheriffs, Bailiffs & Justices Common Law Handbook (also for Sheriffs etc.)
Juror's Handbook This is small, 8 pages (3-1/2"x 7"), extracted from my Citizen's Guide-Book, which has a separate page on this site. It explains the origins, duties and RIGHTS of a Jury and the Jurors, including Grand Juries. Most importantly it explains what Judges almost NEVER explain: No JUROR can ever be punished for voting “Not Guilty!” Any juror can, with impunity, choose to disregard the instructions of any judge or attorney in rendering his vote.
Why Government Destroyed Jury Powers and How to Restore Them 1-page by Bob Hurt of FL. He believes that both FL and the U.S. Government have re-written their Constitutions over the years to TAKE AWAY powers from Juries - and that at least Part of the Reasons were because our Citizens are no longer smart enough or well enough informed to make Proper Decisions. Here are HIS Ideas (with MY comments) on how to Restore Confidence in our Citizens and therefore be able to Restore the Juries' Powers.
