... is the guest speaker scheduled for the 126th meeting of the Karl Hess Club, to convene on December 20, 2004.


    Ron Branson on "J.A.I.L. for Judges"

This month we will see the program originally planned for March. Ron very graciously agreed to reschedule his appearance to accommodate our need to stage the special memorial meeting for Sam.

Ron's program will center on the activities of the J.A.I.L. organization brought about by the need to reform the judiciary of this country. "J4J" is a nationwide organization with chapters in 49 states and the District of Columbia. J.A.I.L. stands for Judicial Accountability Initiative Law. Its purpose is to "end the rampant and pervasive judicial corruption in the legal system of the United States. J.A.I.L. recognizes this can only be achieved through making the Judicial Branch of government answerable and accountable to an entity other than itself."

Ron will explain how amending state constitutions to provide for Special Grand Juries will effect greater accountability of the judiciary. J.A.I.L. for Judges has written model initiatives for each state and Washington, D.C. and coordinates efforts at the grass roots level throughout the nation. Ron will be covering plans on getting J.A.I.L. passed in South Dakota on the 2006 ballot.

We are very pleased to have as our speaker this meeting the founder and national "" who will share the concepts, history and up to the minute current successes of this important freedom movement.


    About Ron Branson


Born in 1946, Ronald Branson joined the U.S. Military in 1963. He had a very strict and straight-laced view of "just doing his job." Part of his military time was spent as a Prison Chaser over prisoners at Fort Belvoir. VA.  He presided over work details and regularly strip-searched the prisoners. He quickly gained the respect of his superiors, and took on the reputation as the strictest Prison Chaser within the prison compound, having disciplined more prisoners than all other Prison Chasers collectively.

After his honorable discharge from the military, Ron entered Washington Bible College, and later graduated from two Bible Institutes, one in Wisconsin and the other in Los Angeles. In 1974 he became the author and publisher of the Alert Sheet Publications, a documentary which exposed cults and other religious organizations. He was ordained into the ministry in 1977 and pastored several churches. He began to realize that the biggest cult and threat to the churches was government, after which he began the Alert Sheet Informant, a publication which exposed government corruption. 

In 1980 Mr. Branson was called upon to travel with and meet appointments by the late A. J. Porth, the patriarch of the modern-day patriot movement, as his right-hand man. In 1992, Ron became co-founder of the Granada Forum, which held it meetings in Tarzana, California. During those years he invited the top expert speakers in their field from all over the country to come and address the attendees of the Granada Forum weekly, with each speaker audio and video recorded. The Granada Forum soon became nationally known among the Who’s Who of America.

Ron's legal pursuits within the courts began in 1982 when he engaged the County of Los Angeles over their refusal to give a mandatory civil service hearing to a sixteen year employee of the county holding civil service protection. Armed with the law and facts on his side, he took on the County of Los Angeles in the courts only to find that the law and the facts were irrelevant in the judicial system, and that despite mandatory duty, politics ruled the courts, not the law. He found that not only were the courts out-and-out contemptuous of the law, but also riddled with absolute facial conflicts, such as the counsel for the county being also counsel for the judges hearing the cases against the county.

Highly motivated to create a remedy for the availability of redress of grievance, Ron, in 1995 wrote, in two days, the original initiative then called "The Judicial Reform Act of 1996." In 1997 it was renamed "The Judicial Accountability Initiative Law", J.A.I.L., in which a website was drawn out

With a goal of "Liberty and Justice for All" Ron's objective is to make J.A.I.L. a nationwide cause among all people that will restore the Constitution and the laws to this country as our Founding Fathers had envisioned it. People across the country are now clamoring for the hope that JAIL offers. There is no doubt in Ron's mind that JAIL will one day become the hottest, largest, and most controversial political hot potato that this nation has recently faced. 

Mr. Branson's chief characteristics is truth, ethics, and principle. He detests politics. 

Starting in 1996, Mr. Branson was three times elected to a two-year term as representative in the 38th Assembly District, L.A.R.C.C.C. By the year 2002 his duties within J.A.I.L. had become so demanding so as to require his full time, in which he now serves at its Five-Star National J.A.I.L. Commander-In-Chief, with a national following that currently includes 49 states and three foreign nations.
