Thanks for you comments. 
In Minnesota it goes even deeper. The Grand Jury was in the original state constitution. Our current constitution makes no mention of the Grand Jury, so I chased down when this "amendment" happened.
Around 1900 there was massive political corruption and the Grand Jury was called upon in Minneapolis to clean up the mess. They became a "runaway" Grand Jury, fired the county prosecutor, told the judge to be silent and within days had indicted several top political officials. (Who were then tried and convicted.)
Our Secretary of State reports that the People voted to remove the Grand Jury and the "amendment" to our constitution was implemented in 1905.  I asked for the ballot that the Secretary of State produced and sent to the People. They did not have it.
I asked for any and all ballots produced by the Secretary of State that concerns amendments to the state constitution.  I was told they only had the "last two".  ALL previous ballots that the Secretary of State created concerning amendments to our state constitution have disappeared. 
I also discovered that the ballots have never contained the actual amendment(s) to the state constitution, but only a "short title" of 6 to 8 words.
So I went to the Minnesota Historical society and researched the legislative intent behind this purported amendment that removed the Grand Jury from our constitution. From the late 1890s to 1923...ALL LEGISLATIVE HISTORY is missing. The only record is the printed books of the bills that were introduced.
So I traced back the "amendment" to the bill that was passed and then voted on by the People (found in the books).  The bill contained the "short title" that was placed on the ballot.  The SHORT TITLE says NOTHING about removing the Grand Jury from the constitution.  The BILL says NOTHING about removing the Grand Jury from the constitution.
But the Secretary of State publishes that this bill that was voted on by the People removed the Grand Jury from our state constitution.
The Grand Jury was then "transferred" into a statutory entity (instead of constitutional) and codefied on the Minnesota statutes.
Then the Minnesota Legislature enacted statutes that say the "court rules" supercede the statutes, and the "court opinions" supercede the statutes. The Legislature also created the Board on Judicial Standards and "gave them" the power to discipline the judges (a power we gave the Legislature in our constitution).
At the same time the Minnesota Judiciary created their own "court rules" concerning the Grand Jury.
This is the reason we in Minnesota are not allowed access to our Grand Juries.
We have been scammed. The Grand Jury was never removed by the People from our constitution. The Grand Jury was "modified" into a statutory entity, and then the Legislature gave the Judiciary power to supercede and control anything that is created by statute.
So the judges now think they have the "power" to control our Grand Juries.
But the fraud that was perpetrated on the People has been discovered and we want our Grand Juries.
We will not stand down.

Ron Branson responds:
Nancy Lazaryan, here is what is Constitutionally wanting in relation to the issues you have pointed out above. First off, every state's Constitution must set forth the supremacy of the U.S. Constitution, no if, ands, or buts. If it were otherwise, such "state" would not be a state among the fifty states consisting of the United States of America. The wording in each state's Constitution must be similar to that we have here in California, "The State of California is an inseparable part of the United States of America, and the United States Constitution is the supreme law of the land." Art. III, Sec. 1.
There are only two classes of crimes recognized in the Constitution, and that is "high crimes and misdemeanors." One can only be charged criminally with either a high crime or a misdemeanor, never infractions. There is no such thing as infractions. Infractions are but the figment of one's imagination, and were it so that any of the fifty states instituted such a thing as infractions, it would have to found to be Constitutionally infirm because it denies federally protected due process rights such as the right to Probable Cause, Assistance of Counsel, and to a Jury Trial.
If indeed it were so that either the judiciary, or the legislature obliterated the Grand Jury powers, they would thereby deprived themselves of any possibility to prosecute anyone of high crimes (felonies). "No person shall be held to answer for a capital, or otherwise infamous crime (felony) unless on a presentment or indictment of a grand jury..." Such persons charged with a felony must be presented by the prosecution to a Grand Jury for an indictment, and without such indictment, the accused charged with a felony cannot even be held to answer, much less be tried and found guilty. 
If the charge is one of a high crime, then a Grand Jury exclusively must determine Probable Cause. If it be for a misdemeanor, then a magistrate may determine Probable Cause. Hence, show me a state in which they have done away with the safe-guard of the Grand Jury, and I will show you a state that has no possible way of prosecuting for a felony. This means one could become a mass murder, and no one could touch them even if the evidence was irrefutable with ten witnesses to the same act. Not even Machine Gun Kelly could be placed on trial for the felonies committed by him. You see, destruction of the Grand Jury system IS the destruction of the basic Constitutional safe-gurads in this country! Our country would collapse! Obviously, the People of Minnesota could not "vote" to abolish the Grand Jury system, let alone the legislature, or the judiciary.
Now pursuant to your testimony, here is how J.A.I.L. would cure the problem you face in Minnesota. If any judge made a "decision" that their word superseded statute, the Constitution, or the People in the form of Grand Jury, they would be answerable to the Special Grand Jury on the question of whether they willfully violated Constitutional principles. According to your testimony, they are openly and willfully violating statute and Constitutional principles. If only thirteen of the twenty-five citizens found thusly as you have declared, they would lose their cloak of judicial immunity and could be tried on the merits of their crime and/or offenses. Not only would they have to perform restitution, but face possible prison time, and/ or lose their judgeship alone with half their retirement.
It would only take a couple incidents of judges' heads rolling after which the judges would recognize that indeed the People have all their rights protected by the Constitution. All governments would have to recognize that the Grand Juries are the People, and they would be forced to tuck their tails between their legs and high tail it. 
Finnally, let me say, you are appropriately barking up the right tree when you beat at the door of the Grand Jury. You just lack the key to open that door. In complimenting you, I wish to commend you for pursuing the right path. Every other patriot cause no matter what, who are beating at the door of freedom in a way that does not involve the Grand Jury system, is spinning their wheels, and shall never see their effort come to fruition.
The fact is, never will this country be restored to its founding principles without the key to the Grand Jury system of JAIL4Judges! Not Minnesota, not any other state, nor this country. The fact is that God has raised me up for the purpose of writing J.A.I.L. and leading this nation, but not through election to office. Who elected Noah? Abraham? Moses? David? John the Baptist? Apostle Paul? John the Revelator? No one! "So then it is not of him that willeth, nor of him that runneth, but of God that sheweth mercy." Romans 9:16.
God bless you.

                      Why Access to Grand Juries
Are Being Blocked
By Ron Branson - J.A.I.L. CIC
Nancy Lazaryan, I have read of your below frustration, and I need to bring something to your attention regarding Grand Juries. Back in 1960 the State of California created what has now become known as the Commission on Judicial Performance (CJP). This commissions have spread throughout the other 49 states as a "means" of discipling wayward judges.
In creating the CJP the "work" of the Grand Juries was "transferred" to the CJP. Prior to the creation of the CJP Grand Juries had the power to investigate all  political figures. However, since then, the one and only governmental entity that cannot now be investigated by the Grand Jury is the judiciary.
I filed an affidavit for criminal conduct of a certain judge with the Los Angeles County Grand Jury. I thereafter received a letter from the Grand Jury stating that they did not have jurisdiction over the matter, and that I would have to go to the Commission on Judicial Performance.
Indeed I did go personally to San Francisco, and was told that they are not a prosecuting agency, but deal only with ethical matters, and that I would have to go to the State Attorney General's Office. I drove from S.F. to the State Attorney General's Office in Sacramento where I was told they I would have to go to S.F. to the CJP.  I told them that I just came from them and they sent me here.
Eventually they allowed me to see a Virgil Chapman, their P.R. man, who photocopied my evidence and told me that this evidence needs to be acted upon post haste.
After a passage of time hearing nothing, I called to follow up. They made unmistaken acts to block my calls and told me they could no do anything.
Here is what I found out. The State Attorney General is defense counsel for the California judges, and could not prosecute. Bottom line, there exists no forum in which the People may file a criminal affidavit against a judge which may be investigated.
This is why you cannot gain access to the Grand Jury. It is also why I wrote into the J.A.I.L. Initiative that the Special Grand Jury created by the Initiative shall not be subject to the laws imposed upon Grand Juries. J.A.I.L. returns the power back into the hands of the People in the form of a Special Grand Jury.

Subject: NEWS RELEASE--Full Page Ad demands access to Grand Jury

The following News Release was just sent to various media sources (newspaper, internet, TV and radio).
Feel free to post on your own website and/or send around to your contacts...
Minnesota Citizens demand access
In a FULL PAGE ad in the Sunday May 25, 2008 St. Paul Pioneer Press the Citizens of the state of Minnesota demanded access to the Grand Jury´┐Ż.


St. Paul, Minnesota
May 25, 2008
The Citizens of Minnesota, frustrated by their attempts to bring evidence of the corruption of certain judicial officers to their Grand Juries, placed a full-page ad in the St. Paul Pioneer Press on Sunday, May 25, 2008.
The Grand Jury is composed of Citizens and is required to investigate evidence of corruption of political officials.  But in Minnesota, the Judicial Branch has taken over the Grand Juries and has refused to allow the Grand Juries to hear the evidence that would indict their fellow judges of crimes.
The cover-up is deep and wide.
In the summer of 2007 Citizens demanded to the Chief Judge of the Ramsey County district court (Gregg Johnson), access to the Grand Jury to bring evidence of corruption of public officials.  The judge refused. 
In November of 2007 an indictment came down from the Grand Jury of Ramsey County on a murder investigation.  The indictment was signed by the foreperson of the Grand Jury.  A criminal complaint (and evidence) of only one, of over 40 cases was sent to the Grand Jury foreperson.  The foreperson, confused, sent the information to Chuck Balck of the Ramsey County attorney's office. Balck gave the information to Chief Judge Gregg Johnson.  Johnson buried it.
Undaunted, numerous Citizens petitioned the Governor (Tim Pawlenty) and the Minnesota Attorney General (Lori Swanson) seeking a special Grand Jury to be convened.  Pawlenty and Swanson ignored the Citizens.
The Citizens arrived at the state capital with TV cameras and asked to speak with Pawlenty and Swanson concerning their petition for a Grand Jury to be convened. Instead of responding to the Citizens, the state police were called and threatened the Citizens with arrest, and the police grabbed the equipment of the reporters.

Part 2
The Citizens also petitioned both the Minnesota Court of Appeals and the Minnesota Supreme Court seeking a writ of mandamus to compel access to the Grand Juries. No response.
Now, a private Citizen has funded a full-page ad in the St. Paul Pioneer Press. This man is not wealthy, yet he dug into his own pockets to bring the message to the People of the state of Minnesota. "We want out GRAND JURY to investigate the evidence of corruption in the judicial branch."
When will the People understand that it is OUR responsibility to correct OUR government? The Grand Jury is charged with the duty to investigate ALL evidence of corruption of public officials, including the judges.
The Citizens of the state of Minnesota will not stand down. They will be heard, and they will require that ALL public officials are made accountable to the People.
It is the right of the People to bring evidence of corruption directly to the Grand Jury. We demand our rightful access to the Grand Jury.
