BILL BENSON'S FIRST AMENDMENT CASE UPDATE
© 2006 - NewsWithViews.com
On Judicial Despotism from Thomas Jefferson to Edward Livingston, 1825. ME 16:114: "This member of the Government was at first considered as the most harmless and helpless of all its organs. But it has proved that the power of declaring what the law is, ad libitum, by sapping and mining slyly and without alarm the foundations of the Constitution, can do what open force would not dare to attempt."
This is on going coverage of Bill Benson's legal war with a corrupt U.S. Department of Justice. If you are unfamiliar with Bill Benson and his work, please see here and here for the history of this case. It is most unfortunate that media giants like the "fair and balanced" FOX, owned by anti-American globalist Rupert Murdoch, have no interest in even mentioning Bill's important case. However, as someone who has been in the trenches since 1991, I long ago learned who owns and controls the media. The only free press in this country today is the Internet and a few great print publications like The Idaho Observer.
As I have said in many past columns, federal judges have been dumping on the U.S. Constitution for decades. The counterfeit U.S. Senate has done NOTHING to remedy this cancer: impeach these justices and federal judges. In his great wisdom, Thomas Jefferson said: Congress can issue a warning (protestation), but if these black robed miscreants continue destroying the God-given rights of we the people, private property ownership, violating existing federal law by unconstitutionally giving YOUR money to illegal aliens, and on and on and on, then by God, you "set the whole adrift." This means you boot them off the bench via impeachment. The government won't come to an end if the process is handled efficiently and without a bunch of partisan BS.
Despite some of the most horrible decisions ever to come out of the U.S. Supreme Court, i.e., the Kelo disaster, the 100 counterfeit U.S. Senators sitting in office right now don't the guts to do what must be done in order to save this republic. All they did after Kelo is moan and groan on friendly talk shows and did nothing to execute the solution; their priority is protecting their own $pecial interest$ above the law of the land. What I wouldn't give for just a handful of real statesmen and orators with the courage of Patrick Henry and Andy Jackson.
Bill's legal team of Jeff Dickstein and Robert Bernhoff are exceptional Americans and highly qualified legal experts. I received permission from Bill to reprint Jeff's comments regarding the latest by the court on his case:
"Status of Bill Benson's 16th Amendment Case, August 18, 2006 From the desk of Jeffrey A. Dickstein
"As of my last report, the government had moved for summary judgment. In response, we submitted several facts to support our defenses that: 1) case law of the Seventh and other Circuits are not entitled to stare decisis on the grounds that the underlying facts supporting those cases were erroneous, and 2) Bill was not falsely telling people the Sixteenth Amendment was not ratified; he was telling the truth because less than the constitutionally required number of states failed to vote for its ratification. The government refused to admit to the facts, and instead argued the facts were immaterial, impertinent and scandalous. We filed a motion to strike those allegations and a motion to have our facts deemed admitted. There the case sat for the past nine months.
"The district court, in a lengthy memo, denied both of our motions, essentially holding that the issue of the ratification of the Sixteenth Amendment is beyond review per the Seventh and other Circuit court cases. The significance of this ruling cannot be overstated. One can only reflect back to the time of Galileo when the official position of the state was that the sun revolved around the earth, and proffering the incontrovertible facts establishing the truth of the contrary position was it self a high crime. Indeed history repeats itself, but who in their wildest imaginations would believe such a denial of due process of law could exist in the United States. Let him who has ears hear.
"The next step will be for the court to decide the summary judgment issue. As noted in the court's opinion, it will either be with or without an evidentiary hearing. I anticipate the court will move quickly.

Bill Benson's case isn't just a run of the mill streak through the federal courts. It is of monumental importance, more so than most people realize. I say this from following Bill's case from the beginning and from having the honor of knowing him for more than a decade and watched his tireless fight to expose two of the biggest lies ever shoved down the throats of the American people: the fraudulent ratification of both the Sixteenth and Seventeenth Amendments. Many people don't know that Bill did both the amendments at the same time. I have been hammering on the Seventeenth for a decade, its importance and why the people of the Several States of the Union must demand their state legislatures force a show down; see here.
Dickstein and Bernhoff also represented Joseph Banister which resulted in a successful acquittal. Because of the enormous cost of fighting off the government dragoons who care nothing about the law any longer, only their civil service paychecks, these two attorneys ended up not being able to bill a ton of hours. They represented Joseph because his case was so important and the same situation applies to Bill Benson's case. Bill is 79 years old. This man has suffered more than most people can even imagine in his fight to bring the truth to the American people and force the hand of the federal government.
Today I had a phone conversation with a wonderful gentleman about purchasing gold. He offered to make a donation to my project, which I declined because I would ask those financially blessed, if you can, please help with these astronomical legal costs. So much is at stake and if necessary, this case will go to the U.S. Supreme Court. Please send cash or money orders to the defense fund at: Bill Benson, Box 550, South Holland, Illinois 60473. I also encourage folks to visit his website here.
It is beyond reprehensible that honest, decent Americans are forced to spend what little money they have trying to defend themselves against a corrupt government. There are more victims of state and federal governments than there are advocates and it will continue to get worse. However, we must fight and we must continue to educate our fellow Americans at every opportunity - especially about fully informed juries and jury nullification.
