but Common Law is not just Case law. That is why we call them by two different names because they have discreet meanings. Logically case law is subset of common law. Not all case law is common law either. If all cases are considered "law" then this logically means that we would not have any case law "repugnant" to our laws. Even statutes strictly construct that only Common Law not "repugnant" to our laws is lawful.
Common Law is exactly what it says. It is the law of commoners or those not under regulated capacity. It is the lawful procedures for non-violent dispute resolutions between Men (Law is always written in the masculine form and means both men and women). Those procedures require all simultaneous elements of a valid cause of action claiming some form of breach of peace or breach of duty for a jury to have subject matter jurisdiction to be seated for a trial. The jury will weigh the facts of the case and then determine the facts and law. This is the process of common law. The law Universities teach that Common Law is case law as a form of subversion to American Organic Laws. The universities also teaches Locke's interpretation of the social contract as another subversion to our form of law.
"There is not a separate system of laws that mean whatever you want them to mean"
It is not about me. The Jury decides both the law and the facts and is the supreme authority in American form of law.
This is not about "...the sovereign internet kiddy in the basement faux legal mumbo jumbo" as you put it, either. You don't need to attack me with hollow threats of kidnapping. All I ask is that you point out to me where there exists in law any more supreme power than a Jury? Supreme authority is Sovereign.
Here is my proof:
US Constitution Article 3 section 2 clause 3
"The Trial of all Crimes, except in Cases of Impeachment, shall be by Jury; and such Trial shall be held in the State where the said Crimes shall have been committed; but when not committed within any State, the Trial shall be at such Place or Places as the Congress may by Law have directed."
Amendment 7 Bill of Rights
"In suits at common law, where the value in controversy shall exceed twenty dollars, the right of trial by jury shall be preserved, and no fact tried by a jury, shall be otherwise reexamined in any court of the United States, than according to the rules of the common law."
"In the United States the People are sovereign and the government cannot sever its relationship to the People by taking away their citizenship."
Afroyim v. Rusk, 387 U.S. 253 (1967).
The Jury is explicitly made of the People not the Government. Their is really deep reasons for this but it is mostly about impartiality for fairness in trails and secondly about total authority over interpretation of law.
The power of the Jury cannot be superseded by any body except upon another jury according to the rules of the common law which means things like new evidence coming to light that would change the outcome, or anything found to have a valid cause of action for redress.
Yes these things are documented in Case Law but the long and winding road that was to taken to get to through the cases became standard procedures in Common Law that were very organic in nature and had certain bounds of applicability related to Breach of Peace or Breach of Duty between Men. Contracts between Men are under Common Law.
We the People have a contract with other men who chose to be bound to duties and prohibitions under the capacity of a regulated Citizen. We the People are men under Common Law and Citizens are a constitutionally created capacity bound to procedures of first and foremost the supreme law of their Constitutional contract and to the statutory code procedures and regulations placed onto the capacity. Laws have an inherent hierarchy logical congruency and applicability. Common Law is what is before and higher in supremacy than strictly constructed Organic Laws.
The hierarchy of the laws of Man is this:
Each level has applicability to those who have voluntarily gone into its jurisdictional capacity. All law also has a logical congruency inherent to its form in order to distinguish real law from color of law. This logical congruency I state as Real law is when no laws are broken in the act of enforcing the law. Their does exists a lawful logical procedural path to do this but We the People do not realize this.
The case law you are referring to actually has precedent for forms of law from Common Law to Regulatory Law. So Common Law is not just case law. It is much more than that. Common Law also includes maxims of law.
The fact that America lost the history and knowledge of common law and the hierarchy of law is exactly why we are so screwed. Now we have a system where most are ignorant chuckleheads who have no business being on jury but are called and serve. Lying politicians saying that they get to make all the "laws" without presentment from their constituents for representation, Corrupt Judges saying the only law we need to refer to is other recent case law by other corrupt judges. This is why America is going the tubes. It is not because of them it is because of our own individual disconnection from law.
Oh and as far my arrest. I have won in court every time since learning the real law with the exception of one kangaroo farm I went to a while back but once they looked into the facts I presented they realized I destroyed their logic and altered some of their procedures. As soon as we wake up to the real law then we can actually bring justice to men who harm others without just cause.
So are you saying we cannot bring justice to those who harm others as long as they were told to do their harmful acts under color of law? Or maybe as long as a judge says its ok to harm people as long as they were enforcing a statute?
The most powerful Law of Nature is Time. It is finite and we all will run out of it. Use this Law to your advantage, for it offers you infinite possibilities...
