Promoting The Bill of Rights One Client  At A Time 

Lord Chief Justice of England, Baron Lane, wrote at the end of the 20th Century

      Loss of freedom seldom happens overnight …   Oppression  doesn’t stand on the doorstep with a  toothbrush, mustache  and swastika armband-it creeps up insidiously   “Step by step, and all of a sudden the unfortunate citizen realizes that it is gone”
liberty-bell_1_md

Civil Rights & Civil Liberty  A Primer

Political and social concepts referring to guarantees of freedom, justice, and equality that a state may make to its citizens. Although the terms have no precise meaning in law and are sometimes used interchangeably, distinctions may be made. “Civil rights” is used to imply that the state has a positive role in ensuring all citizens equal protection under law and equal opportunity to exercise the privileges of citizenship and otherwise to participate fully in national life, regardless of race, religion, sex, or other characteristics unrelated to the worth of the individual. “Civil Liberties” is used to refer to guarantees of freedom of speech, press, or religion; to due process of law; and to other limitations on the power of the state to restrain or dictate the actions of individuals. The two concepts of equality and liberty are overlapping and interacting; equality implies the ordering of liberty within society so that the freedom of one person does not infringe on the rights of others, just as liberty implies the right to act in ways permitted to others.

Succinctly A History

The concept that human beings have inalienable rights and liberties that cannot justly be violated by others or by the state is linked to the history of democracy.  It was first expressed by the philosophers of ancient Greece. Socrates, for example, chose to die rather than renounce the right to speak his mind in the search for wisdom. Somewhat later the Stoic philosophers formulated explicitly the doctrine of the rights of the individual. Traces of libertarian doctrine appear in the Bible and in the writings of the Roman statesman Marcus Cicero and the Greek essayist Plutarch. Such ideas, however, did not gain a permanent place in the political structure of the Roman Empire and all but disappeared during medieval times.

 

Early Development

    Individual freedom can survive only under a system of law by which both the sovereign and the governed are bound. Such a system of fundamental laws, whether written or embodied in tradition, is known as a constitution. The idea of government limited by law received effective expression for the first time in the Magna Carta (Year 1215), which checked the power of the English king. The Magna Carta did not stem from democratic or egalitarian beliefs; rather, it was a treaty between king and nobility that defined their relationship and laid the basis for the concept that the ruler was subject to the law rather than above it. The development of constitutional government was slowed by the persistence of the ideas of absolutism, the belief that all political power should be in the hands of one individual, and divine right, which held that kings derived their power from and were accountable only to God. These beliefs were widely held throughout Europe until the 18th century. The notion that the people have the right to be asked to consent to acts of government did not arrive without a protracted struggle. The reigns of the Tudor and Stuart monarchs in England were marked by fierce conflicts between the Crown and Parliament.
    On the European continent the struggle between authoritarian and libertarian principles developed around religious rather than secular issues. During the Reformation, freedom of religious belief and practice was a primary concern. Tolerance was rare; as late as year 1612, for instance, members of the Unitarian sect were burned as heretics in England. Not until the end of the 18th century did the ideals of religious toleration become firmly established in Western civilization.

 

Civil Rights – Human Rights

Civil Liberties In The United States

What We Strive For

 

     The civil rights and liberties of United States citizens are largely embodied in the Bill of Rights (“the first ten amendments to the Constitution”) and in similar provisions in state constitutions. The First Amendment guarantees freedom of speech, press, assembly, and religious exercise as well as separation of church and state, freedom of the press, freedom of religion. The Fourth Amendment protects the privacy and security of the home and personal effects and prohibits unreasonable searches and seizures. The Fifth through Eighth Amendments protect persons accused of crime; they guarantee, for example, the right to trial by jury, the right to confront hostile witnesses and to have legal counsel, and the privilege of not testifying against oneself. The Fifth Amendment also contains the general guarantee that no one shall be deprived of life, liberty, or property without due process of law. Originally these amendments were binding only on the federal government. However, decisions by the Supreme Court of the United States have established that the Due Process Clause of the 14th Amendment (ratified in 1868) applies many of the guarantees in the Bill of Rights to actions by state and local governments.

Some Notes on Free Access to Courts (Work in Progress)

COURTS ARE FREE

     Take Mandatory Judicial Notice and Cognizance ( Federal Rules of Evidence 201 (d) that “plaintiff” ie Libellant has a lawful right to proceed without cost, based upon the following law:
      The US Supreme Court has ruled that a natural individual entitled to relief is “entitled to free access to its judicial tribunals and public offices in every State of the Union  ( 2 Black 620,  see also Crandell v Nevada, 6 Wall 35].   Plaintiff (libellant) should not be charged fees… or costs for the lawful and Constitutional Right to petition this court in this matter in which he/she is entitled to relief, as it appears that the filing fee rule was originally implemented for fictions and subjects of the State and should not be applied to the Plaintiff who is a natural individual and entitled to relief ( Hale v Hinkel, 201 US 43,  NAACP v Button, 371 US 415 );  United Mineworkers v Gibbs, 383 US 715;  and Johnson v Avery, 89 S.Ct. 747 (1969).  Members of groups who are competent non- lawyers, can assist other members of the group, achieve the goals of the group in court without being charged with “unauthorized practice of law.”
Petitioner (libellant) cannot be charged a fee as no charge can be placed upon a citizen as a condition precedent to exercise his/her Constitutional Rights, his/her rights secured by the Constitution.  A fee is a charge “fixed by law for services fixed by public officers or for use of a privilege under control of government.”  Fort Smith Gas Co. v Wisemen” 189 Ark.675 74 SW.2d 789,790, from Black’s Law Dictionary 5th Ed
Whereas, since the close of the last war, the British parliament, claiming a power, of right, to bind the people of America by statutes in all cases whatsoever, hath, in some acts, expressly imposed taxes on them, and in others, under various presences, but in fact for the purpose of raising a reven…

    (ONLY COMMON LAW MAY BE APPLIED TO THE PEOPLE per the constitution).

    Proof #1: There is a separation of powers. Judicial courts cannot enforce statutes. Only legislative courts enforce statutes. “Courts enforcing statutes do not act judicially” Thompson v. Smith, 154 SE 579; FRC v. GE, 281 US 464; Keller v. PE, 261 US 428.
    U.S. Supreme Court (Miller v. United States, 78 U.S. 11 Wall. 268 268) (1870). Where one inalienable rights are concerned there can be no rule making and exercising ones inalienable rights cannot be turned into a crime.)

    Supreme courts ruled “Without Corpus delicti there can be no crime”“In every prosecution for crime it is necessary to establish the “corpus delecti”, i.e., the body or elements of the crime.” People v. Lopez, 62 Ca.Rptr. 47, 254 C.A.2d 185.

    “In every criminal trial, the prosecution must prove the corpus delecti, or the body of the crime itself-i.e., the fact of injury, loss or harm, and the existence of a criminal agency as its cause. ” People v. Sapp, 73 P.3d 433, 467 (Cal. 2003) [quoting People v. Alvarez, (2002) 27 Cal.4th 1161, 1168-1169, 119 Cal.Rptr.2d 903, 46 P.3d 372.]

    Preamble to the US and NY Constitutions – We the people … do ordain and establish this Constitution…;…at the Revolution, the sovereignty devolved on the people; and they are truly the sovereigns of the country, but they are sovereigns without subjects…with none to govern but themselves… [CHISHOLM v. GEORGIA (US) 2 Dall 419, 454, 1 L Ed 440, 455, 2 DALL (1793) pp471-472]:
