I know that I keep harping to some extent on an old theme, but it is one I cannot emphasize too much! Ever since I conceived of and founded Judicial Watch almost 24 years ago, I have been preaching about the need for a private Justice Department, free from the deceit, duplicity and rank corruption of the governmental one. Indeed, Judicial Watch was formed to be the "People's Justice Department," and that is why as then-chairman and general counsel I brought scores of hard-hitting nonpartisan litigation against not just President Bill and first lady Hillary Clinton, but also President George W. Bush and his "Vice" Dick Cheney, as well as a myriad of other corrupt politicians, judges and lawyers. In so doing, I became the only lawyer in American history to ever have a court of law rule that a sitting president, "Slick Willey," had committed a crime in releasing the Privacy Act-protected file of a woman he had sexually harassed in the Oval Office, one Kathleen Willey.
Today at Freedom Watch, which I founded after having run for the U.S. Senate in Florida in 2004, we do what Judicial Watch used to do: filing hard-hitting lawsuits and other legal actions that seek to bring about justice. While the current directors of Judicial Watch focus mainly on getting documents – perhaps because its head is not a lawyer – this is not enough! With our government comprised of the "court jesters" in Congress, coupled with our compromised and do-nothing attorney general, Jeff Sessions, at my once proud alma mater, the U.S. Department of Justice, now is not the time to do what is easy for appearance purposes in the media to get one's face on Fox News. In this regard, let's take just a few examples of the dysfunction if not continuing charade in the capital of corruption.
First, there is the newly minted scandal concerning Maxine Waters, whom the president has rightly called the dumbest person in Congress, who has in effect dangerously called for a fatwah against conservatives, libertarians, people of faith and those who are of a "different color," or, for that matter, anyone she and her leftist socialist Dems do not agree with. In response to this outrage, calculated to cause even physical harm or death to persons she considers to be "non-believers" or infidels – myself included, just one of many – Congress sits idly by and fails to take action against her. Nor does our Justice Department take action.

To add insult to injury, my former group, Judicial Watch, writes a meaningless letter it tries to characterize as a complaint to the House Ethics Committee, demanding that discipline be leveled against her. Does anyone believe at this point that the House Ethics Committee would recommend Maxine Waters' expulsion from Congress, or any other remedy for that matter?! The political hacks of both political parties in the end will always protect themselves, as there but by the grace of God go thee, assuming they even believe in God.
No one – and I repeat, no one – who comprises the establishment echelons of the cozy bipartisan "Washington, D.C., Club" has been held to legal account for their crimes in the last three decades at least. Even President Nixon skated on Aug. 9, 1974, by simply resigning from office, and he ironically was a saint compared to those who followed him, from the Clintons, to the Bushes and, of course, to top it all off, our anti-Semitic and anti-Christian Muslim in chief, Barack Hussein Obama.
That is why, given the complete breakdown in our justice system, I have proposed that our only peaceful solution, short of dishing it back in the streets to violent hordes of Maxine Waters' vigilante leftist allies such as antifa, Black Lives Matter, the New Black Panthers Party, Farrakhan's Nation of Islam (which was responsible for the Dallas police massacre a few years back and for which I have pending lawsuits for wrongful death), is to go with so-called citizens grand juries.
We the People have the absolute right to mete out justice when our government has gone "AWOL." Citizens grand juries, citizens indictments, citizens trials, citizen court convictions, citizens sentencing and, yes, even citizens arrests, are legal. This is the way it was done in our nation before we had a Justice Department, and it's the way it must now be done. Writing letters to the House Ethics Committee may get your face on Fox News, since the network routinely sells titillating false hope to lure viewers and increase its ratings, but it will not put Maxine Waters, the Clintons, the Obamas, the Muellers, Comeys, Peter Strzoks and Lisa Pages, not to mention Obama's criminally minded intelligence agency heads, former director of the CIA John Brennan and former director of National Intelligence James Clapper, in the slammer – where they belong!

It is ironic that President Trump is rumored to be ready to select a former clerk of deceased Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia, the Honorable Amy Coney Barrett, as the justice to fill the seat of retiring Justice Anthony Kennedy. It was Justice Scalia himself who created precedent over and effectively sanctioned the use of citizens grand juries to mete out justice. In a case styled United States v. Williams, 504 U.S. 36 (1992), the judicial icon held that the grand jury belongs to the people and not the three branches of government.
With this in mind, "Freedom Watch's Justice League," with you as its superheroes, will be empaneling citizens grand juries in the next weeks and will mete out the equal justice under our laws, and in particular our beloved Constitution, that the populace so craves!
We look to your participation and support of this necessary and noble cause. Now is the time to take real action – not just file document requests and write meaningless letters to Congress or anywhere else – before our country goes down for the final count. Go to www.freedomwatchusa.org to enlist in "Freedom Watch's Justice League" and strongly support and participate in our citizens grand juries.
