I thought it would be useful to pass this on.

It is a bit long-winded, but does pretty much explain The Common Law, insofar as what it is, and how it has taken such a battering ... and what we would need to do to restore it.

It is exactly what I, myself, have come to recognise as the situation ... but 99% of that recognition has been through completely independent thinking. (So, it's interesting to see that the Writer, and many historical figures agree with me!)

The Writer is Kenn d'Oudney, whose website is called (my problem is "What has 'democracy' got to do with the Common Law? Democracy is just another word for 'Mob Rule'. However ... Kenn seems to have all the right ideas closely to hand, so ...)

Kenn was answering a question from two people called Jim MacLeod and Damian Ellwod ... who had asked for his opinion on the's claimed, by idiot Dr. Kevin Annett, that they had had the Pope & Brenda 'found guilty' in Brussels, via a Court of the Common Law, and that Ratzinger had been 'arrested'.

Well ... in answer to Jim & Damien, Kenn goes into a rant ... but the rant is VERY worthwhile reading if you want to understand what is actually happening today, and how you (and your forbears) have been so brainwashed.

If you understand Kenn's rant - from top to bottom ... you'd never need to ask another question ... because every answer is therein.

PS Kenn has inserted [NON-] in his response to Jim & Damian, in order to make the point.

Subject: Fw: Final Verdict is Rendered in First [NON-] Common Law Court Case

Final Verdict is Rendered in First
[NON-] Common Law Court Case against the Vatican and Canada for Genocide
Pope, Queen and Canadian Prime Minister found Guilty of Crimes against Humanity and Sentenced to Twenty Five Year Prison Terms - Court Orders them to Surrender by March 4 or face Citizens' Arrests
Brussels: Pope Benedict will go to jail for twenty five years for his role in Crimes against Humanity, and Vatican wealth and property is to be seized, according to today's historic verdict of the International [NON-] Common Law Court of Justice. 


RESPONSE to Jim MacLeod and Damian Ellwod.

Dear Jim,


We keep receiving enquiries about this... Following injustices for the most part inflicted in a rather remote past, even generations ago, bear in mind that those folks nowadays are after money and more money; more "compensation." To be sure, we hold no brief for the Vatican regarding this issue, but today, as the protestant and therefore biased, Reverend Kevin Annett, chief adviser to the Prosecutor's Office, should know, and every educated lawyer does know very well, there is nothing remotely resembling an authentic legem terræ Common Law Court of Trial by Jury in Brussels or anywhere else in Europe, including the U.K.! (Hence, the Restoration Campaign... [Veronica's Note: Kenn's Campaign])


People who want to restore the genuine ways of true justice must first learn the straightforward Facts about what Common Law is, and then they will be able to recognise for themselves the modern mendacious ruse that deliberately mis-educates people into the despicable deceit that "the rulings of judges are 'common law'." Not so, indeed!


This so-called Brussels 'trial' nonsense does not come close to, let alone adhere to, the Principles of honest, impartial due process governed by genuine Common Law. Indeed, this approach flouts Common Law and brings it into disrepute. 


To begin with, remember, Jurors must be randomly selected from the adult population local to the alleged crime; and then vetted (by plaintiff, defendant and decided by fellow jurors) to exclude partial individuals. "Volunteer jurors" are generally not disinterested, and are utterly excluded by Common Law. Such "volunteers" are comparable to a lynch-mob. (See full explanations in TRIAL BY JURY ISBN 9781902848723)





The genuine common law must be differentiated from that which modern government has corrupted by legislation; a counterfeit which is "common law" in name only.


Common law does not include any statutes made by government or decisions made by judges.


Common law is emphatically neither "government-made" nor "judge-made." Quite the contrary: it is exclusively the product of the sense of fairness, natural law and justice of the ordinary people. Modern usurpation notwithstanding, common law does not consist of case precedents (stare decisis), for juries decide the law, which includes the sentence, in each individual case. Nor is it comprised of judicial rulings, decisions or interpretations of statutes.


Common law does not ever or in any way come from government judges. Indeed, common law is the antithesis (the ‘opposite’) of judge-made law, and it is supposed to free all the people equally from the shackles of arbitrary government and their bidden employees.


Common law is the law of all the people: it forms the Supreme Law which binds government and legally controls the personnel of government’s modus operandi. In recognition of this latter fact, the Common Law Trial by Jury is inserted into the Constitution as the sole justice system for all crimes (infractions of laws and regulations), civil, criminal and fiscal



Here are some references confirming the common law is legem terræ and vice versa.


Sir Matthew Hale: "The common law is sometimes called, by way of eminence, lex terræ, as in the statute of Magna Carta, chap. 29, where certainly the common law is principally intended by those words, aut per legem terræ; as appears by the exposition thereof in several subsequent statutes; and particularly in the statute of 28 Edward III, chap. 3, which is but an exposition and explanation of that statute. Sometimes it is called lex Angliæ, as in the statute of Merton, cap. 9, Nolumus leges Angliæ mutari,' etc. (We will that the laws of England be not changed.) Sometimes it is called lex et consuetudo regni (the law and custom of the kingdom); as in all commissions of oyer and terminer; and in the statutes of 18 Edward I, and de quo warranto, and divers others. But most commonly it is called the Common Law, or the Common Law of England; as in the statute Articuli super Chartas, chap. 15, in the statute 25 Edward III, chap. 5 (4) and infinite more records and statutes."

1 Hale’s History of the Common Law, p. 128.

[Veronica’s Note: Sir Matthew Hale didn’t know what the Common Law ACTUALLY WAS … he only knew what it had been called within Statutes! It was after reading Hale’s shit, that John Harris originally threw up his arms in despair (I seem to recall)! Actually, there’s a certain amount of DOUBLE-THINK that’s going on in all of these quotes .. they are generally making no distinction between the Magna Carta TREATY 1215, and the subsequent Magna Carta (irrelevant) STATUTE 1297]


Crabbe: "It is admitted, on all hands, that it (Magna Carta) contains nothing but what was confirmatory of the common law, and the ancient usages of the realm, and is, properly speaking, only an enlargement of the charter of Henry I, and his successors."

Crabbe’s History of the English Law, p. 127.


Blackstone: "It is agreed by all our historians that the Great Charter of King John was, for the most part, compiled from the ancient customs of the realm, or the laws of Edward the Confessor; by which they mean the old common law, which was established under our Saxon princes."

Blackstone’s Introduction to the (Great) Charters; Blackstone’s Law Tracts, p. 289.


Coke (a High Court judge): "The common law is the most general and ancient law of the realm. The common law appeareth in the statute of Magna Carta, and other ancient statutes (which for the most part are affirmations of the common law) in the original writs, in judicial records, and in our books of terms and years."

1 Coke’s Institutes, p. 115.


Coke: "It (Magna Carta) was for the most part declaratory of the principal grounds of the fundamental laws of England. They (Magna Carta and Carta de Foresta) were, for the most part, but declarations of the ancient common laws of England, to the observation and keeping whereof the king (the government) was bound and sworn."

Preface to 2 Coke’s Institutes, p. 3.


Nota Bene: To judge the law, i.e., its fairness, validity, applicability, and legal meaning (interpretation), the Jurors are the sole legal judges prescribed by constitution and common law.

For example, see the following from Gilbert: "This position" (that the matter of law was decided by the justices [judges], but the matter of fact by the pares [peers, i.e., jurors]) "is wholly incompatible with the common law, for the Jurata [jury] were the sole judges both of the law and the fact."

Gilbert’s History of the Common Pleas, note, p. 70; and


"The Annotist says, that this [i.e., whether jurors reflect upon the question of law] is indeed a maxim in the Civil-Law Jurisprudence, but it does not bind an English jury, for by the common law of the land the jury are judges as well as the matter of law, as of the fact, with this difference only, that the judge on the bench is to give them no assistance in determining the matter of fact, but if they have any doubt among themselves relating to matter of law, they may then request him to explain it to them, which when he hath done, and they are thus become well informed, they, and they only, become competent judges of the matter of law. And this is the province of the judge on the bench, namely, to show, or teach the law, but not to take upon him the trial of the delinquent, either in matter of fact or in matter of law."

Gilbert’s History of the Common Pleas, p. 57.


Having established what common law is, one must note the extent to which the term common law has been abused. It is an opprobrium to misinform people that "common law" is a product of judges, stare decisis, and government courts.


Worse though: it is utterly wrong to allow government to rob the people of their true common law and its power of emancipation.


It is unconstitutional to amend in effect The Constitution’s installation of the common law Trial by Jury Justice System by co-opting the common law by legislation into a body of law legislated by congress or parliament, or made by judges. For this has been the illegal means of burying common law and the authentic Trial by Jury, to enable government to obliterate the People’s ability (peacefully) to protect their liberties for themselves. It moreover supplants the model justice system of Trial by Jury with the flawed, one-sided, inherently illegal despotic system of trial-by-judge.


Whereas statutes may express some of the common law, this latter itself contains no statutes of governments, nor rulings of judges. Legem terræ common law became the pan-European, and subsequently pan-Occidental phenomenon which prescribes and defines Trial by Jury as its central tenet and sole justice system.

And the constitutional, historical and law texts of Blackstone, Crabbe, Palgrave, Kelham, Mackintosh, Millar, Coke, Gilbert, Hume, Turner, Hallam, Stewart, Hale, et al.




The authentic Common Law recognises and provides for the fact that the people have a perpetual obligation to enforce common law and protect themselves from lawlessness and injustices inflicted by criminals who acquire positions of power or government. Hence, common law (expressed as Articles 24, 39, 40 and 61 of Magna Carta [Veronica’s Note: That’s the 1215 Treaty], etc.), installs the People as the legal force to police, indict, punish and otherwise obtain redress.


It has been the perjurious ploy of dishonest statist politicians, lawyers and judiciaries to try to miseducate the Western people en masse into the wrong idea that ‘law’ derived from judicial precedents is ‘common law’; and that their so-called ‘common law’ is ‘made’ by government judges.


As explained, common law does not come from judges. To say it does, is a lie which the enemies of equal justice, rights and liberty repeat and want the people to believe, in order to give politicians arbitrary power to rule over the population; and to deprive the people of genuine common law rights and protections.


Only feloniously-inclined (or in some cases ignorant) people ‘deny’ that legem terræ is the genuine constitutional common law which reigns supreme over written laws, governments, all men and women, including those who legislate.


Such a denial by state personnel is itself a criminal contravention of the Common Law and the Constitutional Supreme Law, and must always be suspected of being a premeditated judicable act of mens rea.


Definition. judicable, that which may be tried by jury in a court of law.


Because the legislature can pass legislation which reverses or overrules those (non-common law) judge-made precedents and decisions which the governments perjuriously misname "common law," in a further act of criminal mendacity, by employing their premeditated abuse of the term ‘common law’ the statists come up with the warped speciosity that as government statutes can overrule their judges' counterfeit ‘common law’, that therefore, ‘parliament/congress is sovereign !’


This criminal ruse and intended mind-manipulation (‘brain-washing’) serves the purpose of those malicious villains in government who want to make people feel helpless and completely inundated by the tide of government regulation, insidious misinformation and arbitrary control. It is only effective amongst those people who, for career, pay and self-interested motives, judicably collude and particpate in the Illegality of the Status Quo, and with those who are duped into ignorance of what common law actually is.


Government does not ‘grant’ or ‘bestow’ the right and power to do justice: upholding justice is the inherent duty of every citizen.


Government does not even have a right ‘to do justice’ for that is exclusively the Trial by Jury power, right, duty and procedure of the randomly selected Jurors.


The rôle of government (executive, legislature, and judiciary) in the justice system is executive, not judicial: that is, government carries out the judgements, sentences and decisions of the Jury. [Veronica’s Note: The role of the Government is also to PROTECT the true Common Law, the ensure that it stays pure to the fundamental principles. The fact that Politicians have done THE EXACT OPPOSITE of this … for centuries … is why we are in SO MUCH SHIT]


Only that government is legitimate which upholds the authentic Common Law and its Constitutional Trial by Jury Justice System.


Yours sincerely,




Kenn d'Oudney.
