STATE OF THE UNION

New York was burning, smoldering. I remember flying over and circling above the Statue of Liberty, looking down on it. I could read the book in her left hand. Instead of the numerals on the real statue, the word “union” was inscribed on the tablet.

WITH LIBERTY AND JUSTICE FOR ALL
Editor’s Note: To date, the 9/11 Citizens’ Grand Juries are models. However, communities in the U.S. and in the 82 nations, which lost citizens on 9/11, can establish their own Town Hall meetings and elect their own Citizens’ Grand Juries. PDJ also encourages readers to listen to their dreams and consider the legal remedies they might reveal. PDJ encourages readers to listen to their dreams and consider their guidance about using your special gifts to create a more peaceful world. Let us know; we support viable peace efforts.
When Lynn Pentz dreamt this tableau, she linked it to her “hot and heavy” romantic relationship. The dream, she believed, signaled “it was time for me to move out of New York, out of the relationship.”
Lynn, life change consultant and producer of transformational entertainment events including Live Aid, Hands Across America, and the Bicentennial Celebration of the U.S. Constitution, moved to Los Angeles. There, in the aftermath of 9/11, she co-founded Los Angeles 9/11 Truth and guided it to prominence in the global 9/11 grassroots movement. A cornerstone was Lynn’s resurrecting the constitutionally guaranteed People’s Grand Jury and applying it to redress the U.S. government’s involvement in the crimes of 9/11.
Without realizing the political significance of her dream, Lynn initiated action, this time toward preserving a union, this time, the union of the United States of America.
As evidence mounted of government complicity in 9/11 and a government/media cover up with no justice for the perpetrators, Lynn and 911TruthLA.us, convened a “Citizens’ Grand Jury on the Crimes of 9/11” in 2004 and 2005.
“It is necessary to reestablish the citizens’ grand jury if the great American experiment is to survive,” Lynn believes.
At Town Hall meetings at Patriotic Hall in Los Angeles on October 23, 2004 and on August 27, 2005, experts and elected jurors formally rejected the legitimacy and conclusions of the Kean-Hamilton 9/11 Commission and declared the Official Story “physically impossible, contradictory, implausible and fraudulent.” In both cases, the jurors found “probable cause to indict” at least 20 individuals “at the highest level of the US government, military, and private enterprise.”
“I’ve always been steeped in U.S. history and spiritual, but never thought of my role as political,” said Lynn, a descendent of the legislator who cast the deciding vote for Virginia’s adoption of the Bill of Rights,
The Statue of Liberty is a gift from France to the U.S., commemorating the centennial anniversary of the signing of the Declaration of Independence. Modeled after Libertatus, the Roman goddess of freedom, the classically robed woman holds a lit flame in her right hand and a tablet, symbolizing knowledge, engraved with the Roman numerals for July 4, 1776, in her left hand,
One of the most famous icons in the world, the statue rising from the New York Harbor testifies to freedom from tyrannical governments.
Lynn wrote of the Citizen’s Grand Jury: it was “the Framers’ intention that We the People are the Fourth Branch of Government assured in our First Amendment right to Petition our government for Grievances and our Fifth Amendment assurance of independent Grand Jury Presentments - designed for investigations of governmental wrong doing separate from interference from federal prosecutors. ”
Supreme Court Justice Powell stated in 1974, “The institution of the grand jury is deeply rooted in Anglo-American history. In England, the grand jury served for centuries both as a body of accusers sworn to discover and present, for trial, persons suspected of criminal wrongdoing and as a protector of citizens against arbitrary and oppressive governmental action.”
In theory, the grand jury is a body of independent citizens with the power to investigate any crime or government misdeed brought to its attention. The Grand Jury can make its own presentment — a formal statement of the grand jury’s independent assumptions, fact-findings, and conclusions.
Lynn’s Statue of Liberty dream with the word “union” inscribed on the icon’s tablet embodies not only the historic founding of the Union, but also her spiritual definition of union, her logo — UNIR1 — the unification of consciousness — You and I are One.
