As we are ever-increasingly bombarded with assertions overt and implied that we as free citizens may not be sufficiently intelligent or able to determine our own destinies, and those of our fellows, perhaps we should return to the well and examine the thinking of one who went before. Controversial even in his day, Essayist Lysander Spooner examined eloquently and in detail why free persons, to remain free, must demand, retain and exercise their full powers as jurors. In this essay he examines in detail the interplay of relative powers of judges and common law jurors. An Essay on the Trial by Jury, Lysander Spooner

Military-Industrial Complex Speech, Dwight D. Eisenhower, 1961
In this farewell speech President Eisenhower issued warning  concerning the peril to our freedoms which arises from our need for an expanding military and industrial might: 

“This conjunction of an immense military establishment and a large arms industry is new in the American experience. The total influence -- economic, political, even spiritual -- is felt in every city, every State house, every office of the Federal government. We recognize the imperative need for this development. Yet we must not fail to comprehend its grave implications. Our toil, resources and livelihood are all involved; so is the very structure of our society.”

“Contact with Indians and their ways of ordering life left a definite imprint on Franklin and others who were seeking, during the pre-Revolutionary period, alternatives to a European order against which revolution would be made. To Jefferson, as well as Franklin, the Indians had what the colonists wanted: societies free of oppression and class stratification “
 
Forgotten Founders,   Bruce E. Johansen

SOMETHING TO PONDER...
Judges Elected? Thirty-one states elect their judges. The rest “appoint” them, including Iowa.  In a 2002 U.S. Supreme Court decision (Republican Party of Minnesota v. White), the Court ruled that Minnesota (an election state) could not limit certain speech by a judicial candidate. Some Justices imply that the manner of selection is a matter of state choice and that Minnesota could change this by amending its Constitution. How would that correlate with Section 2 of the Fourteenth Amendment, not under consideration in that case? Doesn’t Section 2 require that for a state to have continued representation in the Congress that the right to vote at any election for its judicial officers shall not be denied? Ponder: Is Iowa, along with 18 other states, at serious risk of losing representation in Congress in the manner in which their state judges are seated on the bench? 

THE FOUNDERS’ CONSTITUTION. Hailed as "the Oxford English Dictionary of American constitutional history," the print edition of The Founders' Constitution has proved since its publication in 1986 to be an invaluable aid to all those seeking a deeper understanding of one of our nation's most important legal documents.

FAMOUS TRIALS  (UMKC School of Law - Prof. Douglas Linder) contains accounts, maps, photos, transcript excerpts and other materials relating to over 44 famous trials, from Socrates, Jesus, Scopes,  Aaron Burr, Leonard Peltier -- to OJ. It’s worth a visit!

THE COOK’S THESAURUS. Whoever heard of a Bintje (ben jee) potato? Is that the best potato for making French Fries? Can you get Bintje potatoes locally? Yes, you can, you just need to know what they are commonly called. What are definitions of meat cuts? What do morel mushrooms look like? Did you know that aluminum, copper, and iron cookware can react with acids in foods and alter their flavor and color? Is Imitation Vanilla Extract as good as the real thing? The Cook’s Thesaurus is much like a cooking encyclopedia. Definitions of food or utensils are accompanied by pictures and explanations. Wouldn’t it be handy to see a picture for each item?

IOWA ATHLETES

Bob Feller, Van Meter, Iowa.   Member of the BASEBALL HALL OF FAME who set MAJOR LEAGUE RECORDS while a PITCHER for the CLEVELAND INDIANS.     

Dan Gable, Waterloo, Iowa. Sometimes called the “BABE RUTH” of wrestling.

Frank Gotch, Humbolt, Iowa.  Wrestled the WORLD CHAMPION WRESTLER,  the “RUSSIAN LION”, George Hackenschmidt in 1908 to win the WRESTLING WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP. Until his death in 1918, Gotch NEVER LOST A FALL, much less a match. He toured the United States and Canada meeting all comers, agreeing to throw them inside of 15 minutes or forfeit $100.00.  Few, if any, collected.

SHAWN JOHNSON, West Des Moines, ably competed in the 2008 Beijing Summer Olympics, winning one Gold and three Silver Medals in Women’s Gymnastics, and capturing the hearts of people all over the world with her winning smile and determination.

LOLO JONES, a graduate of Roosevelt High School in Des Moines, (born 5 August 1982) is an American track and field athlete. She won three NCAA titles and garnered 11 All-American honors while at LSU. She won indoor national titles in 2007 and 2008 in the 60m hurdles, and won her first world championship in 2008 in the same event. At the 2008 Beijing Olympics, Lolo was favored to win the 100 meter hurdles. In the final, she was pulling away from the pack when she clipped the 9th hurdle (of 10) and stumbled, breaking stride to drop her back to a disappointing 7th-place finish. The mistake has been compared numerous times to Gail Devers' famous fall in the same event at the 1992 Barcelona Olympics. What is noteworthy about Lolo are the obstacles she cleared to get to the 2008 Olympics were a lot more formidable than one 33-inch barriers she clipped. http://www.letsrun.com/forum/flat_read.php?board=1&id=2623382&thread=2623382 . See also her bio on Wickipedia http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lolo_Jones  to discover that Lolo is really “one class act” when you scroll down to her charitable contributions made to Iowans and her other accomplishments in life.

JESSI WINCHESTER, Webster City, author of “From Bordello to Ballot Box”, A First-hand Account of Legal Prostitution and Political Corruption. Jessi wrote the book not as an expose', but rather to inspire others who feel trapped by society's judgment to be all they can be despite the obstacles they must overcome - and to show it can be done. Jessi finished second in the primary election for U.S. House of Representatives, and placed third in a field of nine for Lieutenant Governor of Nevada. She is a prolific writer voicing thoughtful, meaningful commentary on corruption in government, published nationally. On September 28, 2001, immediately after the 9/11 terrorist attacks, Jessi wrote a column and in it she relates the dangers our liberty faces with passage of portions of the Patriot Act. Jessi does not claim to be a “seer” or “prophet” but she forecasted what the news would be in the future if that legislation was passed, and she relied on history to make her intuitive and insightful points. The threats to American liberty that Jessi anticipated in 2001 to result from the Patriot Act became daily national and international news from then and right through 2005. Go to: Freedom’s Worst Nightmare That and other of her columns are archived in her website. As a political columnist Jessi travels the lecture circuit, and appears frequently on radio and TV. Her most current TV program is A&E's 'City Confidential' on Virginia City.

JESSI WINCHESTER, Webster City, featured columnist for “Liberty for All” a free online news magazine.

Steve is a published author, having written “WITHOUT A VISION THE PEOPLE PERISH”, and the title says it all. Steve donates his book royalties to Hope Missions in Des Moines. Information on the book may be found on Steve’s web page.

JESSI WINCHESTER, Webster City,  “With our Constitution we should have a perfectly-run government, but sadly we do not”, is Jessi Winchester’s message in her writings and her speaking on the lecture circuit, on talk radio and TV. Jessi is an educator, teaching the history of our Nation, pointing out that those in our government that fail to take lessons from history are leading the country down the wrong path, and how the “wrong path” affects you. In January 2006 Jessi published “Ignoring History”, articulating what went on in the Great Depression -- a rebellion in the Heartland of America -- in Iowa and Illinois, and what may be reasonably expected to come to fruition soon unless those in power act properly today to correct America’s imbalance of too much power in the hands of a few that do not seem to care a whit except for their personal ambitions tied in with the ambitions or of those that bought them their offices. Chaos reigned then during the Depression. History should not repeat itself. Visit Jessi Winchester’s website and read her archived writings.

 HISTORY OF IOWA

The Burlington Zephyr run from Denver to the Chicago World's Fair -
The Independent 
"A train unlike anything ever seen on rails pulled out of Denver's Union Station at dawn on May 26, 1934, and raced eastward . . . .
The goal was to make the longest and swiftest land run in history -- destination Chicago by nightfall. To achieve that goal, the train would have to cover 1,015 miles in less than 15 hours, requiring an average speed of nearly 70 miles per hour. But the first leg of the trip would require a breaking-in period that would hold the speed to 50 mph. Time would have to be made up on the remainder of the route."

Museum of Science and Industry.
"Passenger traffic along the entire route was sidetracked. Freight trains also were tied up. Switches were spiked to prevent tampering. At each station, where crowds were gathered to see the silver king of transportation speed through, the track was guarded by local law officers, posts of the American Legion and Boy Scouts."

Taylor County, Blockton, Iowa. Stories of Early History. From Mrs. Ledgerwood’s Story, “In the early days they did not have matches – just flint rock and tow to make a fire. In April one year the fire went out so mother sent my sister and I to a neighbor’s to get some fire. My sister fell and spilled the fire in the dry grass and then we had to do some running…. The fire we set was terrible as everything was dry and the grass was four or five feet high, and a high wind was blowing.” (about 1853).

Mormons in Iowa

Along the Mormon Trail  In 1846 the PITT BRASS BAND was traveling with the Brigham Young Party and was invited to play for the locals in Keosauqua when they stopped.  They played concerts by the Van Buren County Courthouse, which is still in use today. 15,000 people passed through in one year.  It was required that they have certain supplies. See the list.

The most famous of all Latter-day hymns, “Come, Come, Ye Saints”, was written by William Clayton on the banks of Locust Creek near what is now Corydon, April 15, 1846. Brigham Young succeeded Joseph Smith as leader in Council Bluffs in 1847.

Chief Black Hawk Autobiography

 “In passing through Georgia I had determined to visit the once obscure little village that in 1864 suddenly acquired a notoriety that will live—associated with all that is most horrible in the world's records of ‘man's inhumanity to man’—as long as time lasts”. Iowa and Anderson Ville, Hon. B.F. Gue, Iowa State Register.  Annals of Iowa, July, 1884.  Iowa State Historical Society. 
   Iowa-born author McKinley Kantor was awarded the Pulitzer Prize for his
novel  Andersonville.

Who was this man, Chief Keokuk?  Judge J.M. Casey wrote of him: "While Keokuk was not a Lee County man, I have often seen him here. He was an individual of distinguished mark; once seen would always be remembered. It was not necessary to be told that he was a chief, you would at once recognize him as such, and stop to admire his deportment….  But it is a conceded fact, by all the early settlers who know him, that Keokuk possessed, in a prominent degree, the elements of greatness"”

   Dragoon Trace (trail) in Ringgold County.  Down this road on September 10, 1845 Chief Keokuk led his people on their exodus from Iowa.

   Map of the Western Military Frontier, June, 1845, through the River des Moines.  In 1836, commissioners including Col. Zachary Taylor, were authorized to lay out boundaries dividing the Indians and Settlers.

“Sometime during the night of June 9, 1912 a killer or killers unknown, entered the home of Josiah B. Moore. Bludgeoned to death were Joe, his wife Sara, their four children and two neighbor girls, Lena and Ina Stillinger, who were visiting overnight. Known ever since as the Villisca axe murders, this is easily the most notorious crime in Iowa history.  .  . .”  Coroner’s Inquest. Read the testimony of witnesses called right after the event.
