June 5, 2014

TO CONGRESS,  
We, The People of the United States, in order to form a
more perfect Union, ESTABLISH JUSTICE, ensure
domestic tranquillity, provide for the common Defence,
promote the general welfare, and secure 
the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity,
do hereby ordain and re-affirm 
the Constitution of the United States, through
these presents as follows; 
which are also a proposed ACT OF CONGRESS*,
and 
which may  at any time also be unilaterally effected 
by the President of the United States or at his
specific direction:

WHEREAS there exists today in the United States 
in terms of the Executive granting of Reprieves* and pardons,
a backlog which has built up over many years; and is
unfairly and egregiously injurious to the
rights and lives of hundreds of thousands of
Americans and many others; 
.
(* The capitalization is not in error. It is verbatim
from the original text of the Constitution.  The same is
true of the 18th century spellings above: "tranquillity",
"Defence", and of course the word "Offences" in the
Article Two, Section Two "Reprieves and pardons"
clause.)
.
WHEREAS the Constitution, in all of its most newly
written Amendments, contains this phrase which is
in agreement with the spirit and the letter of the
Law of the Land, "The Congress shall have power
to enforce this article by appropriate legislation.";
.
WHEREAS the power to grant Reprieves and Pardons 
was bestowed and bequeathed upon the President 
and upon the Executive branches of the several States
by the Founding Fathers, with the Original Intent
that this power be USED, and not made to lay fallow;
.
WHEREAS there is a Constitutional imperative
for the granting of a Reprieve and pardon by the
President or by the Governors of States and Territories
whenever a conviction, judgment or sentence is 
anathema to the Constitution;
.
WHEREAS the Supreme Court of the United States
has ruled consistently that the powers of the President
to grant Reprieves and pardons are absolute, and 
therefore the power to interpret the Constitutional clause
with respect to these powers may be left to the
President to define, if not to Congress or the Judiciary;
.
WHEREAS victims of harmful injustices, and their families, 
loved ones and friends, cannot afford to be "put on hold" forever, 
told to wait for justice, and told by Congressional offices that 
"we don't handle legal matters", despite the fact that
Congress is sworn under Oath to protect those same rights:
rights which are now and presently violated with impunity
by officials acting under color of authority;
.
WHEREAS conditions of prosecution and Government error
have in recent years become far more complex;
.
WHEREAS it was never the intent of the Founding Fathers to 
form a Fascist government incapable of comprehending the 
meaning of liberty or any of the blessings thereof, or to establish 
prosecutorial immunity, to ensure affirmation of the actions of kangaroo courts,
to provide for a private prison-for-profit system across the United States, 
or to promote a human factory-farming of rubber-stamp prosecution in any of 
our Nation's courts: thereby securing the general curse of an expectation of 
unfairness, injustice and tyranny; 

WHEREAS those American heroes who sacrificed beyond our ability to repay, 
did not give their lives and expose themselves to danger on the battlefields 
of our Nation's defense perimeters, so that their sacrifice on behalf of the 
defense of our Nation and our Constitution could be made light of
by people who abuse positions of power in our Government, or so that 
the abusers of authority can deprive Americans of their rights in a way 
which tarnishes the good name and fame of the liberties which our heroes 
have fought for and cherished valiantly unto death: 
.
1) BE IT RESOLVED that an Act of Congress establish
the following DEFINITIONS which the President shall
be required to maintain and uphold as part of the
Oath of Office, with respect to the following portion
of the Constitution of the United States:

Article Two, Section Two, Paragraph One, US Constitution:

"The President shall....have power to grant 
Reprieves
 and pardons for offences against the 
United States,
 except in cases of impeachment." 

A) "The President shall....have power to grant Reprieves and pardons" 
shall indicate that the power of the President to grant Reprieves and pardons 
shall not be questioned in any other legal venue in the United States, except
for the First Amendment venue of discussion among the people at large; 
no particular pardon or pardons which shall have been granted by the President 
shall be open to judicial review, or questioned by any official in any position of public trust throughout the United States or any place subject to their jurisdiction.
.
i) The power to grant "Reprieves and pardons" shall indicate 
either a Reprieve, or a Pardon, or both forms of Executive clemency.
.
ii) The granting of a Reprieve and Pardon creates a tabula rasa, or  clean slate, 
in the official record of the individual on whose behalf the Reprieve and pardon
shall have been granted.  If the Reprieve and pardon is granted in the context 
of a criminal conviction or prosecution, the Reprieve and Pardon removes the
criminal conviction or stays the prosecution as though the conviction or prosecution
never existed; according to law.
A Reprieve and pardon must be both sufficient, and true to its own purpose,
and must not fall short of its purpose at the time the granting of the pardon
shall have taken effect.  Any pardon granted should be restorative of all 
ante misericordiam rights - that is, all the rights which were legitimately 
enjoyed under the Constitution, or all privileges exercised lawfully by the 
pardonee, prior to the first appearance of the adversities leading to
the request for a Reprieve and pardon.
A pardon should not go only part of the way toward restoring justice. 
Rather, a pardon should eliminate and reverse all malevolent effects 
and stigma of all conditions which it is the valid, fitting and proper object 
of the pardon to address.  A pardon, as a Good Samaritan act of the President
or any Governor, must not merely tell the victim of injustice that he or she
is absolved from having been knocked down: the pardon must provide 
Government enablement to allow victims of injustice to get back on their feet.
.
iii) The forms which a Reprieve and Pardon may take, include but are not
limited to the following listed here, either singly or in any combination:
a) pardon; b) remission of fine; c) restoration of
credit; d) arrangements to reinstate bank
accounts and pension arrangements to a
status equivalent to or better than the status
ante misericordiam, as well as the 
reinstatement of vehicle and homeowners'
insurance policies ante misericordiam
unto a point in time two years from
the date the pardon is granted; e) restoration 
of driving privileges; f) sealing of evidence;
g) expungement of records; h) exoneration;
i) restoration of employability by removal
of computer flags; j) changing of military
discharge status to honorable designation;
k) staying of foreclosure or eviction or any other 
Sheriff's action which has been taken
against the pardonee who is a homeowner
or prior lawful occupant of a home; 
l) reinstatement of utility accounts without
penalty, m) Provision for financial grant
of emergency disaster relief for man-made
disasters caused by Government, n) quashing
of bail requirements and return of all bail
monies to the indemnifier; o) Letters of 
Declaration of Actual Innocence; p) orders
to end surveillance; q) political rehabilitation
(meaning restoration of eligibility to hold
any office of public trust under the 
jurisdiction of the United States); 
r) social rehabilitation, including the reversal
or voiding of any loss of US citizenship status,
the reversal of any curtailment of rights or
lawful status as a US citizen, US national or lawful
resident of the United States, and including removal
from infamous proscriptive lists and 
restoration of public entitlement benefits
whenever such benefits shall have been
jeopardized, reduced or ended as a
result of conditions which the granting of
the Reprieve and pardon is to alleviate;
s) restoration of professional licenses
or certifications; t) physical restoration
of personal effects, papers, tools,
impounded vehicles, and small
business or corporate filing statuses
without charge to the pardonee, and
repair or replacement at equal or 
greater value whenever damage or
disuse during the time of impoundment
or other taking has arisen therefrom;
u) apologies for civil rights violations 
which have averrably been committed,
aided, abetted, furthered or unjustly tolerated
by Government employees or contractors
who have been assignable to or 
contracted by Government
functions or by any agency of the
press or the electronic media
including broadcasting media which
has repeated Government verbiage
in the context (without prejudice: e.g.,
without necessarily indicting or
naming those responsible for
the violations; such indictments or
namings shall not in any case be
made a necessary precondition of
restoration of the dignity of those
whose rights have been harmfully 
violated); v) acknowledgement
of Government negligence and/or 
malicious prosecution as stated in
writing, restoration of lost income;
w) income tax forgiveness for all
past arrearages and filing requirements
at all levels of Government; x) income tax 
abatement at all levels of Government
extending up until seven years 
after the date of the pardon;
y) repatriation in a former residence,
domicile, dormitory, shared space or storage unit
(up to three residences per individual)
from which the pardonee - either as
an owner, renter, lessee, party to any
kind of contract, or lawful or documented caretaker) 
has been ousted due to any act or acts of eviction,
foreclosure, condemnation, force, displacement,
dispute, Sheriff's sale or bank repossession; and
z) reversal of Bills of Attainder and 
other Constitutional infractions. 

iv) To the truth of the purpose for which it
is intended to be granted, any Reprieve
and pardon may take the following forms of
instant quashing, reversal and commutation 
of incarcerative conditions.  Incarcerative
conditions may be defined as a) imprisonment; 
b) detainment under color of authority; 
c) uncompensated former episodes of
imprisonment or detainment under
color of authority (and compensation
therefor to be included in the granting
of Reprieve and Pardon, in a way which
is not an insult to justice); d) parole and/or
probation requirements which are lapsed or  
current; e) a record of imprisonment 
which is unfair and harmfully damaging;
f) a record of parole and/or probation
which is unfair and harmfully damaging;
g) loss of employment or business as
a result of imprisonment or other
incarcerative condition; h) loss of income
as a result of incarceration or any 
incarcerative condition or any act of
prosecution which is tinged with any
unconstitutional aspect; i) loss of home 
and/or utility services to the pardonee
or next of kin as a result of unfair
incarceration of the pardonee; j) seizure
or towing of pleasure or business 
vehicles; k) loss of bank accounts or
other business accounts; l)  loss of 
utility services; m) loss of diplomatic status; 
n) unfair loss of credibility; 
o) press libel or defamation of character
which is in the context of malicious
prosecution; p) forced entry into the home
or vehicle of the pardonee, by or at the 
behest of individuals acting under color 
of authority in the context of the 
violation of any Constitutional right
regardless of any local ordinances or court 
orders which may be unconstitutional in the 
context of actions against the pardonee;
q) return of all resources and monies taken
from the individual who lost these resources
or was deprived of such monies, even if 
that individual is not the pardonee,
as a result of the imposition of requirements
of bail, defense from malicious prosecution,
wrongful conviction, cruel and unusual sentence,
excessive or inordinate fines, and requirements
of parole and probation unfairly imposed;
r) any other egregiously harmful or financially
ruinous collateral damage imposed on
next of kin of the individual who is to be 
granted a Reprieve and pardon;  
s) deprivation of witness protection which
has proved or may prove harmful; 
t) any unfair treatment of a witness as 
described in 18 U.S. Code § 1512;
u) loss of higher education or continuing
education privileges of attendance, enrollment
or the option to graduate;
v) Forced medication (and/or court-ordered
psychiatric, psychological or medical testing
or evaluation, especially when the person 
ordered to undergo such testing is also 
ordered to pay for it) which is not substantially
needed for any legitimate medicinal purpose;
or is forced on someone as an ancillary to a
malicious prosecution;
w) Any forced separation of parents from 
children, which is brought about on the
basis of financial motives, rather than
on the basis of any actual need to 
protect the well-being of a child;
x) Any restraining order or warning of arrest 
which is motivated financially, or stems from
a narcissistic motive, rather than actually
arising from any actual substantial need 
for protection from abuse or harm; 
y) any unreasonable or unfounded designation 
of any individual as a security risk; and
z) any other process or action or declaration
which may be considered or designated
as an incarcerative condition, either by
law or at the pleasure of the President.  

v) Whereas human rights which are described in
the Constitution of the United States are
individual rights, there is no Presidential
or other Executive power to grant pardons to benefit groups. 
Reprieves and pardons can be granted to
more than one individual at the same time
in the process of a single act granting a 
multiple, or linked, Reprieve and pardon. 

vi) Reprieves and pardons cannot be granted 
on behalf of deceased victims of injustice to their
actual or purported descendants; however Reprieves
and pardons may be granted posthumously
to individuals whose Constitutional rights were 
violated in a sense which can be most fittingly
acknowledged by a grant of Reprieve and pardon.
Pardons are for the living
.
vii) No Executive grant of Reprieve and pardon
shall ever be employed for any malicious purpose.
.
viii) Reprieves and pardons may be employed
to nullify injustices without actually indicting anyone.  
The purpose of a grant of Reprieve and Pardon is to provide
speedy and timely relief to victims of injustice(s)
or Government error(s), whose well-being and
equal status with respect to restoration of rights
is directly dependent upon hastening such relief whenever
it can be reasonably averred that there is a
Constitutional imperative to provide such relief
unlikely to presently become available through
any other means.
.
ix) The President or any other Chief Executive
official in the United States who is empowered to
grant Reprieves and pardons, must act within the context
of inherent adherence to all Constitutional mandates
including First Amendment requirements.  
However, the President and other Executive officials,
in the context of any such granting of Reprieve
and pardon may, within the range of inherent adherence,
request the withdrawal and retraction of any report 
and to state the reasons for the request; or comment
upon a report which is the object of any such request.
.
B) "The President shall....have power to grant Reprieves and pardons"
shall also be construed to mean that any Act of Congress
or any other legal arrangement providing for a United States Pardon Attorney,
or any similar office; shall grant this power primarily to the President alone: 
or to the Vice President whenever the Vice President shall become Acting President. 
The responsibility of the US Pardon Attorney or any similarly constituted office,
shall be limited to the scope of recommending to the President
the advisability of whichever pardons any such office shall recommend; 
moreover, the President's powers cannot be curtailed by the
Office of the Pardon Attorney or any other similar office of public trust.

i) No individual appointed as US Pardon Attorney
or as the highest ranking member of any such
office or any other office similarly constituted
(such as any US Board of Pardons), nor any
such individual appointed to any State or
Territorial Board of Pardons, may serve for
longer than 150 days into the term of
any successive Administration.
.
ii) Due to the press of business and the
requirements of orderliness; the outgoing
US Pardon Attorney (or highest ranking member
of any Board of Pardons of any State or
Territory) or any similar official, may 
remain in office actively for up to 
three hundred and thirty (330) calendar days
after a successor is appointed and shall
have taken office, so that petitions for
justice shall not fall through or be dropped
through any inadvertent error.
.
iii) In that the power of the President to grant
Reprieves and pardons is absolute, so shall
the power of the President to appoint whomever
the President deems fit for the office, 
according to a schedule and timing 
determined by the President, be absolute.
Even in the event that Congress holds any 
confirmation hearing or vote, the person nominated
by the President to take office as US Pardon Attorney
may execute the office without delay or any preventive
objection from Congress.
.
iv) Whenever the Vice President shall take office
as Acting President, the Vice President shall have
power to accept the resignation of the US Pardon
Attorney or any similar official, summarily and
forthwith; and to appoint the successor thereof
to the same office.   
.
v) The President shall have the authority, solely,
to abolish the Office of the Pardon Attorney at 
any time; and to replace that office with a
US Board of Pardons or any other similarly 
dedicated professional entity; or to appoint a
Special Assistant to the President for Reprieves and Pardons
and to create an Office of the Special Assistant to the
President for Reprieves and Pardons.
.
vi) The purpose of the Office of the Pardon Attorney
or the US Board of Pardons or any similar office, is to
recommend to the President that certain pardons
should be granted; and to expedite this task and
to ease the workload of the President, while at the
same time refraining from obstructing the pardoning
process in any way.   The same is true of any similar
entity at the State or Territorial level of Government
with respect to recommendations made to Governors.

C) Pursuant to Article Four, Section Four,
Republican Form guarantees inter alia; and 
pursuant to Article Six, paragraphs two
and three; and pursuant to these binding
Oaths of Office required in Article Six,
paragraph three, of the Constitution of
the United States of America; any individual
in any position of public trust within any branch
of the Federal Government, any Member of 
Congress, and any individual in any 
position of trust within the Judicial Branch
of the United States including any Clerk
of Court, and any member of the Legislature
of any State or Territory in the United States
shall have power equal to that of the US
Pardon Attorney or other similar office,
to recommend to the Governor of any
State or Territory and to the President
any request for any Executive Reprieve
and Pardon, the granting of which is
necessary in order to affirm and restore
the Constitution of the United States. 

D) It shall be an offense against the laws 
of the United States for any individual working
under the authority of any Office in any
legislative branch of Government in the
United States, including the States and
Territories thereof as well as Congress;
to refuse to handle the request of any
citizen of the United States which invokes
the need to affirm and restore the Constitution
of the United States, whenever any such 
request is parlayed in a peaceable manner
as well as in an intelligibly reasonable form or
or construction; and no refusal of any such 
request can lawfully proceed on the basis  
of any policy which rejects the handling of 
so-called legal matters by Congress or any 
other legislative body, or on the basis of
separation of powers, or on the basis that
the citizen of the United States is not a citizen 
of the State or Territory, or a resident
of the Congressional District, for that Office. 

E) It shall be an offense against the laws of
the United States for any individual working
under the authority of any Office in any legislative 
branch of Government in the
United States, including the States and
Territories thereof as well as Congress;
to willfully delete, destroy or disregard,
or to otherwise obstruct in any deliberate manner
any communication from any citizen of the
United States which reasonably invokes the need 
to affirm and restore the Constitution
of the United States, whenever such request
is in a reasonable and peaceable 
form or construction. 
.
F) The word "offences", which is synonymous
with the modernized word "offenses", shall be
construed to mean "violations of law" which 
are either established by the Judicial Branch
of Government in any place under the jurisdiction
of the United States; or established by any
affidavit or petition for redress of grievances
which reasonably invokes the Constitution
of the United States to the point of cogently
mandating action to the point of redress
by any official sworn to an Oath to preserve,
protect, or defend the Constitution of the
United States.  
.
i) The use of the term "offence"
or "offense" in the Constitution to describe the 
range of the power of the President to
grant Reprieves and pardons, shall not imply or 
require that the individual on whose behalf
a pardon may be granted shall either have
been convicted in a court of law, or shall
have exhausted all options for further 
appeals, prior to the granting of a pardon
or the consideration of the pardon request
or application.
.
G) The first order of offense in the United States
is any violation of the Constitution by any
individual or combination of individuals in any
position of public trust in any place under the 
jurisdiction of the United States, or in any
office of the Federal Government, or by any
individuals or corporations authorized to act
on behalf of the Government, or acting effectively
on behalf of the Government even without authorization.  
.
H) The first priority in the granting of Reprieves
and Pardons shall be to provide redress of any
and all reasonable grievances on behalf of any
innocent or relatively innocent citizen or lawful 
resident of the United States
(at the time of the issue at hand) who is reasonably
and verifiably affirmed or sworn by legal affidavit
to have been a victim of any violation of the
Constitution of the United States, whenever
such violation has been substantially harmful
to that individual in question and to the public good
or has been reasonably established by Oath
or affirmation to cause clear and present 
danger to any Constitutional right or to any
other right or appurtenance which is substantially
dependent upon the wholeness of the Constitution,
according to the same standards.   
.
i) The Attorneys General of all States and Territories
in the United States and under the jurisdiction 
thereof, shall have the same power as the US
Pardon Attorney has, to recommend pardons 
to the President for favorable consideration.   
There is no need to require that all such requests be
handled by or through the Office of the US Pardon
Attorney, or any similar office or official.  The existence
of any pardoning clearinghouse does not rule out
or prevent pardon requests from making their way
to the President (or concomitantly to Governors)
through an alternate route.
.
ii) In any instance whenever any Attorney General
of any State will, under Oath or affirmation, cite
any conflict of interest with regard to the possibility
that the US Pardon Attorney (or US Board of Pardons
or any similar office) might recommend favorably
to the President, that any certain individual be 
granted a Reprieve and Pardon; it shall be mandatory
that the US Pardon Attorney, or the office thereof,
or the US Board of Pardons or any similarly purposed
office, be bypassed: and that such a request be
forwarded from any State Attorney General directly
to the President, in order to eliminate any such
conflict of interest.
.
iii) In the event the President or anyone under the
authority of the President, finds a conflict of interest
with regard to the possibility that the President may
grant any particular Reprieve and Pardon, no such 
suspected conflict of interest shall obstruct all possibility
that the possible pardonee shall be granted a Reprieve
and Pardon; but the matter shall be referred to the 
Office of the Vice President, and the Vice President 
shall be prepared to grant such requests as are so
listed, upon the next occasion of the Vice President
having taken responsibility as Acting President.
It would be suggested that the custom of the 
President pardoning turkeys at Thanksgiving be
given a holiday, and the substitute therefor should
be that the President, at noon Washington time 
on Thanksgiving Day, 
after having granted a certain number of pardons,
should ceremonially and temporarily resign for the
next twelve hours, in order that the Vice President
shall become Acting President for the next twenty-one
hours, until at least the end of the Thanksgiving holiday 
throughout the entire United States, in order that all
requests for the President to grant Reprieves and
pardons which may fall within the scope of conflict
of interest, may be forthwith addressed.

I) It shall be an offense against the laws of the
United States for any individual in any position
of public trust under the jurisdiction of the United States 
to utilize official records and journalistic or petty reports: 
whenever such records or reports or the context of
these records or reports may have created a
false or misleading record of the supposed guilt 
of the petitioner or potential recipient of a Reprieve 
and pardon, or which may likely act to unreasonably
and unfairly discredit the reputation, actions, motives 
whereabouts or chronology of the person on whose behalf 
a pardon may be granted; in any way which may 
lead to the unjust obstruction of any request 
for any reprieve and pardon by using such records
or reports as a basis for excluding and terminating
any reasonable doubt, or as a basis for continued
manufacturing of condemnatory libelousness.
.  
i) The purpose of any Government handling of
any petition for the grant of any Reprieve and pardon
is to handle the request in a manner which is respectful
toward the cause of justice, in that there may be two
sides to any issue presented at the behest of officials
or other reporters: and to identify and quash libelousness;
rather than to automatically and unthinkingly reaffirm
and reinforce libelous reports and defamatory records.
.
ii) To be sure, any such report or official
record - whether libelous and misleading or not,
may be forwarded to the President, 
or to the Pardon Attorney or US Board of 
Pardons as that official record stands; 
however the petitioner for a pardon
shall be accorded a reasonable, clear
and timely opportunity to respond to 
any and all damaging, defamatory or 
discrediting wording in any official 
record so cited, as described above
inter alia: and the President or any 
other Executive official who has power
to grant Reprieves and pardons may
regard libelous and misleading reports
as exculpatory evidence regarding the
prospective pardonee, in citing the fact
that officials or reporters sensed the need
to resort to such tactics in order to deprive
some innocent or relatively innocent individual
of rights guaranteed under the Constitution,
in a case in which fact and reason knowingly were
insufficient to have brought about such deprivation 
of rights, or conviction, or punishment, or other
unfair and egregiously harmful deprivations. 

J) It is not necessary that the person or
people on whose behalf a Reprieve and Pardon 
shall be granted shall have actually
committed an offense or have even been
accused of any violation of law.  It is merely
necessary that an offense have been 
committed in the context to which the
request to grant the pardon pertains.
.
i) In order to affirm the spirit of the law within the
context of the equal protection clause of 
the Fourteenth Amendment, individuals who 
are innocent and who have never been
accused of wrongoing, are no less entitled 
to the benefits of the granting of a Reprieve and 
Pardon on their behalf, than are any individuals
who are actually guilty of an offense, or 
deemed by law to be guilty.

ii) The chief Constitutional precondition
for the granting of any type of
Reprieve and Pardon is that an offense
shall have or has been committed in the
context of the granting of any Reprieve
and Pardon.   The Constitution does not
require that the person on whose behalf
a Reprieve and pardon shall be granted
shall actually be guilty of anything.
.
iii) The individual who is granted a Reprieve
and Pardon by the President or by any 
Governor in any State or Territory, may
have been the victim of the offense in
question, and may never have been
identified as guilty in any sense
whatsoever.
.
iv) The primary purpose of any Presidential
granting of any Reprieves and Pardons
to individuals, whether innocent in the eyes
of the law beforehand or not, is to maintain the 
integrity of the Constitution of the 
United States. 
A secondary purpose of the granting of any
Executive Reprieve and Pardon is to ensure
that a greater purpose of justice shall not
be overridden or overrun by a lesser purpose
of justice, or by any truly petty consideration
or one-sided evaluation; or to ensure that a
principle or motive which is primarily constituted
of kindness shall not be overrun by a purpose
of meanness.
A tertiary purpose of the granting of any Reprieve
and Pardon by the President, or by any Governor
under the jurisdiction of the United States, must
be to ensure that Government under the Flag
of the United States shall always have the quality
of mercy about it; in order to ensure smooth
operation of Republican form, in order to forgive
trespasses which have some character of innocence
or non-harmfulness or both, or an aspect of
unintentionality of harm or Good Samaritan
aspects about them; in order to remove from
the contentiousness of criminal venues 
such things as misunderstandings, or
good intentions gone awry by accident, 
or disputes which might better have been
the subject of adult agreement or arbitration
outside the courts, and in order to generally
ensure domestic tranquility and to
give peace a chance to prevail.

v) Although there may be forms provided by
Government, so that applicants for Reprieves
and Pardons may fill these forms out and
submit these forms to the Office of the US
Pardon Attorney or a concomitant office in
any State or Territory, there is no Constitutional
requirement or law which mandates the proper
form in which a request for a Reprieve and
pardon shall be presented or constructed,
nor is there a law stipulating that such 
requests be presented in writing to any
certain office or official.  Accordingly,
requests for Reprieves and Pardons may
be presented in any form whatsoever to
any individual sworn to an Oath to 
uphold the Constitution; and a spoken
request is equally as valid as a written
request or a form which is filled out.

vi) Whenever a pardon request is rejected
by the Office of the Pardon Attorney or any
similar office, the office must do the following
a) Convey the fact that the pardon has been
rejected, within 30 days of the rejection.
b) Cite the reasons for the rejection of the
request.
c) Convey to the individual whose request for
a pardon has been rejected, the fact that he or she
is eligible to immediately file a new request for
a Reprieve and pardon; according to a form to be
provided by the Office of the Pardon Attorney or
by some equally suitable alternative legal process;
and there will be no waiting period imposed or
announced in that context.
d) Convey to the individual whose request for
a pardon has been rejected, that if certain conditions
or questions or facts are addressed in any future
request, that there might be a better chance of the
granting of a Reprieve and pardon in response to
the subsequent request(s).
.
vii) A third party request for a Reprieve
and Pardon, or a request for such
presented directly or rhetorically on
social media, is also equally as valid as
a request for a Reprieve and Pardon
directed to any particular official, by
the person seeking the pardon 
himself or herself. 

viii) The President may exceed the range
of relief requested in the context of any
granting of any request for any 
Reprieve and pardon;
the same is concomitantly true of any 
Governor of any State or Territory.
.
K) The granting of any Reprieve and Pardon
cannot lawfully or in any non-defamatory
sense be deemed or considered to be
an acknowledgement of guilt on behalf
of the individual on whose behalf a
pardon shall have been granted.
.
L) The word "for", in the Reprieves and Pardons
clause, shall mean "in the context of"
or "in relation to", "on account of", 
"arising from", "due to", "because of",
"in association with", "in spite of", or
"for the purpose of addressing".

M) The President, or any Governor, has the
authority to interpret the word "for", in the
Reprieves and Pardons clause, to include
and have this meaning, and to specifically
state such in the wording of the pardon:
"in order to Constitutionally resolve, to the
mutual satisfaction of the grantee and the 
Government of the United States, all issues
which may be or may have been raised in the
matter of alleged
".   
This meaning and definition of the word "for"
may indicate that there is much more which
could have been done to make the pardonee
whole; however the ability of the Government
to provide further redress is limited by
time, and by budgetary and other constraints.
Thus the meaning of the Reprieves and Pardons 
clause, whenever the President or
the Governors of the several States and 
Territories choose to cite or implicitly apply  
this particular definition of the word "for",
shall be fairly construed as the following: 
"The President shall....have power to grant 
Reprieves
 and pardons in order to Constitutionally resolve,
to the mutual satisfaction of the grantee and the
Government of the United States, all issues
which may be or may have been raised in the
matter of alleged offenses against the 
United States."

.
N) The preceding definition of the word "for",
in the Reprieves and Pardons clause, utilizes this
meaning of the word "for" in order to settle issues
which, if not resolved by the process of the granting
of a Reprieve and Pardon, and if not resolved 
according to this particular interpretation and
definition, would be particularly ruinous; either
ultimately to the interests of taxpayers, or 
indelibly to the reputation and international 
legal standing, of the United States, as well as  
the full Faith and Credit of the United States. 
.
O) The President, therefore, in granting any
Reprieve and Pardon to any individual,  
also thereby pardons the offense itself;
and whenever the offense in the context 
of any Reprieve and pardon has been an
offense against the Constitution itself which
has been committed by any public official,
this pardoning of the offense may also be
an expungement of any national guilt:
in the sense conveyed in Zechariah 3:9,
"I will remove the guilt of the land in a 
single day
."  The same is true of any
Governor of any of the several States 
and Territories under the jurisdiction of
the United States. 

P) For the purpose of the definition of the
term "Territory of the United States", in 
this Actthe Armed Forces of the United 
States
, and all of their bases either within
the limits of the territory of the United States
or in other countries and all of the vessels
of the United States in transit or in passage
or embarking or disembarking, or in any other 
use, shall be considered to be a
Territory of the United States
; and individuals
serving in or with the Armed Forces of the
United States shall be eligible to be granted
Reprieves and Pardons by the President,
in a way which is compatible with military
discipline and morale, as well as the duties
of the Armed Forces of the United States
to protect the Constitution.  Accordingly,
the highest ranking Officers in each Branch
of Service shall have power to grant Reprieves
and Pardons to individuals in the Armed 
Forces of the United States, or to individuals
in the custody of the Armed Forces of the
United States, whenever the granting of
such pardons and reprieves is merited on
the basis of the security of the United States
or of the Armed Forces of the United States.
In that the highest ranking Officers in each
Branch of Service to the United States
are subordinate to the Secretary of Defense
as well as to the President; and in view of the 
fact that the military is not to be rendered
independent of and superior to the civilian
power, by the first Declaration of the 
government of the United States, the
following three conditions shall also be a
part of this Act of Congress: 
i) that any Cabinet official in the line of 
succession to the Presidency shall also 
have official capacity equivalent to the US
Pardon Attorney, to recommend pardons
to the President;
ii) that the Secretary of State shall 
co-ordinate, with the US Pardon Attorney
on a regular basis, to establish a basis 
and expediting of process for linkages
of reprieves and pardons internationally,
by treaty or by other arrangements, in
the context of agreements or treaties 
between nations to grant pardons of
a reciprocal or linked nature in a way
which is respectful of the sovereignty
of both or all nations involved in any
such particular agreement;
iii) That any State or Territorial official
under the jurisdiction of the United States
shall also have concomitant power to
recommend Reprieves and Pardons;
both to the President, and to any other
Executive official who has the power
to grant or to directly act on requests
to grant Reprieves and Pardons, 
in the context of the constitutions
or laws of any State or Territorial 
government under the jurisdiction
of the United States.  
iv) No military official or officer who is in
or associated with the military, may obstruct
in any way, any request for any Reprieve
and pardon, by or on behalf of any person
serving in the Armed Forces of the United States.
.
Q) The President shall have power to grant
Reprieves and Pardons to victims of actions
or declarations by States, which are in clear
violation of the Constitution, and have been
averred under penalty of perjury by attorneys
of law in any legal document or affidavit, to
be contrary to the Constitution in any way.
This aspect of the power of the President to 
grant Reprieves and Pardons resolves issues
which potentially breach the prohibition of
State nullification of the Constitution.

R) It shall never be held to be a precondition 
of the granting of any Reprieve and Pardon in the
context of any Government violation of the rights
of any individual, as described in the Constitution,
that the person or people in any positions of trust 
who are averred to have committed these violations, 
or any other person who shall have been averred to
have been an official or unofficial eminence grise
in the context of such Constitutional violations,
shall first have been named, indicted, prosecuted 
or arrested for these violations.  It is sufficient to
the Constitutional need for the granting of a
Reprieve and pardon, to show that a violation of the 
Constitution of the United States, or of any
State Constitution, has taken place. The granting of 
any Reprieve and Pardon to persons in distress 
should not be delayed until such issues can be
resolved or even initiated in any prosecutorial
phase of legal action.   The President's powers
to grant Reprieves and Pardons may and should
be exercised in a way which takes the lead in
resolving legal issues of justice, and shall never be
confined to the status of a legal afterthought,
which would relegate the President's power to
grant Reprieves and pardons to the level of
a power of powerlessness. 

S) A Reprieve and Pardon may be granted
without prejudice.
.
i) A Reprieve and Pardon may be tailored
or modified to speak to the specific needs
of justice; whether initially addressed in the
direct request therefor, or subsequently 
discovered by diligent auditing in the 
Office of the Pardon Attorney or any similar
official capacity.
.
ii) Any granting of Reprieve and pardon may
be subject to subsequent or further modification
in order to address harmfully deficient lapses
in the fulfillment of all requirements of justice;
and whenever such further modification is also
granted, such modification will imperatively
be in favor of a greater range, scope, 
intensity, magnitude or amount of clemency
on behalf of the pardonee.
.
iii) Even when a grant of Reprieve and pardon
shall have been subsequently found to have been
granted in error or on a mistaken basis, 
no such grant is rescindable, and all such
grantings of Reprieve and pardon are 
irrevocable, in the form in which they 
have been granted.
.
iv) Except for absolution of income tax filing and payment requirements to a point
in the future hence, and except for the scheduling of amortized payments of
compensation and emergency disaster assistance by the Government, no granting
of any Reprieve and pardon may forgive or provide clemency in the context of future
events which have not yet originated. 
.
v) The purpose of any grant of Reprieve and pardon, in any chronological sense 
or aspect, is to forgive the past and to expunge past offenses, and to reverse harm
which has already been inflicted, as well as to prevent the furtherance of ongoing 
harm arising from the possible spiraling permutations and combinations which
have resulted from, or may likely result from past acts of harm or Government
negligence which have been inflicted uponindividuals in the past and concurrently 
with the date of the granting of Reprieve and pardon.
Pardons may not forgive actions which originate after the granting of a 
Reprieve and pardon, or subsequent offenses.
No granting of any Reprieve and pardon may be construed in such a way as to 
serve implicit notice upon the pardonee, to the effect that he or she has any
permission or grant to break the law henceforth, in any way, with any impunity.
The pardonee has the responsibility to lead a completely law-abiding life 
after having received a grant of Reprieve and pardon from the
President of the United States, or from any Governor of any 
State or Territory under the jurisdiction of the United States.
.
vi) Standard "waiting periods" and Procrustean
prioritization of requests to grant Reprieves
and pardons are hereby abolished; and 
instead of assembly-line handling of requests
in the order in which they are received, the
most urgent requests
; especially in questions
of alleviating or commuting scheduled executions
of capital punishment cases and any other instances
where human life is imminently at stake; as well as 
scheduled destructive act against, or confiscations of,
property which is averrably irreplaceable and
precious (such as cultural artifacts which are
unique works of art or non-duplicated copyrighted works
and unpublished musical sketches), shall move directly 
to the head of the line
 for expeditious relief; and 
Members of Congress may, under the doctrine
of inherent adherence to their Oaths of Office,
notify the US Pardon Attorney or any official in
any similar Federal or State or Territorial capacity,
of the initiation of a direct oversight role by
their own Congressional office.  Any Member of
Congress may initiate and maintain any such
oversight role for any citizen or lawful resident
of the United States; without delimitation as to
the State or Congressional District of the 
prospective pardonee.

T) The President, or the Governors of any of the several States and Territories, may 
act to consider, expedite, or grant any pardon, or move any pardon in process
ahead of schedule, in order to alleviate human suffering, in order to prevent 
violation of the human rights of any citizen or lawful resident of the United
States, or to prevent Constitutionally-transgressant harm including damage
to life, liberty, peace of mind, property or reputation, or to preserve life, or to
provide rescue in any issue which hangs in the balance, or wherein the prospect
of inaction would reasonably and clearly increase the risk of clear and present 
danger, or risk irreversible damage to a substantial interest which the United States
Government has a compelling interest in preserving, such as evidence or
copyrightable manuscripts or cultural artifacts which is of irreplaceable nature.
.
U) Neither the President, nor any of the Governors of any of the 
several States and Territories, shall be empowered by law to
go back on their word of honor once a pardon has been granted.
.  
i) Neither the President of the United States, nor any of the Governors 
or High Commissioners of any of the several States and Territories
shall be permitted to use any Reprieve and Pardon to entrap, 
or as a ruse to convince or cajole an appellant or petitioner to 
withdraw any claim; especially a claim of innocence.
.
ii) Furthermore, the Governor of any State or Territory of the United States, 
upon discovering that an individual in another State or Territory is the victim 
of any violation of the Constitution of the United States which is not sufficiently
addressed within the context of the State or Territory of which that 
individual victim of Constitutional violations is a citizen or resident, 
may act to offer sanctuary to any individual so described; and
to provide safe passage, the interstate version of political asylum, and the 
financial and domicilary means for any individual so described, to live in dignity
and to benefit from the restoration of rights so granted.  There should never
be any necessity for any citizen or lawful resident of the United States to
escape to freedom in another country, due to abuse under color of authority
of the full Faith and Credit requirement of the Constitution of the United States.  

iii) There is no Full Faith and Credit requirement to uphold violations of the
Constitution of the United States, on the part of any State or Territory of the 
United States of America. 

V) Any individual on whose behalf any Reprieve and Pardon shall have been
granted, has the inherent right to refuse such a granting of any Reprieve and 
Pardon on his or her behalf, and to send the granting of a Presidential or
Gubernatorial Reprieve and Pardon back to the President or Governor, 
with objections or recommendations for reservations, revisions or 
amendments thereto.  
.
i) Nevertheless, and notwithstanding the above; certain types or subsections of grantings
of any Reprieve and Pardon which shall have been refused by the pardonee, may still 
be valid, notwithstanding any objections by the pardonee, to that grant of pardon
in whole or in part.  In this sense, a granting of Reprieve and pardon by the President
constitutes an order by the President to override or veto the issuance of an order
or other act or action which has the effect of an order,  which is or may have been 
created by or initiated at the behest of a lower authority in Government, or a contractor
therfor, to impose a punishment.
.
ii) The precedent which enables the refusal of an Executive pardon by the pardonee
still stands from old times; however it is best interpreted in our own time as conferring
a power upon the pardonee to protest the granting of a Reprieve and pardon; but not 
to refuse it in a way which overturns the absolute power of the President or any
other Executive authority to grant it. The power of the President or any other
Executive to grant a Reprieve and pardon is not conditional upon the acceptance
thereof by the pardonee; unless the pardon is in the form of a contract which requires
the element of fair consideration.
.
iii) No agent or assign for, and no person having power of attorney respecting any
prospective or present or actual pardonee, has any power by law to refuse a pardon 
on behalf of the pardonee, except in certain contractual conditions; and even in such
cases this power to speak on behalf of the pardonee shall apply only to those 
conditions to be subject to such modification or relevant to any such question 
of contractual negotiation.

W) It shall be a violation of Federal law, by these presents:
for any request for any granting of any Reprieve and Pardon to be held to an
arbitrary timetable or fixed waiting period; and processes shall be maintained by
the Office of the Pardon Attorney of the United States, to prioritize requests
for Reprieves and Pardons in order of urgency; in terms of the interest of the 
applicant, and in terms of the national interest of the United States as well. 

X) The purpose of the Founding Fathers and all ratifying legislatures; in their
creation and ratification of the Reprieves and Pardons clause of the Constitution
of the United States, was and is to give the power of Constitutional affirmation 
to the President, in the first instance; so that whenever any Court or any arm
of law enforcement shall trample upon the Constitution, or deprive any citizen
or lawful resident of the United States of any Constitutional right, the President
and the Governors of the several States and Territories shall have power to 
repair the breach in the Constitution of the  United States, so that the Constitution
can be maintained as the Law of the Land; 
and so that the President, as described in the Article and paragraph directly 
proceeding the part of the Constitution which includes the clause on Reprieves
and Pardons, may "faithfully execute the Office of President of the United States,
and will, to the best of (his or her) ability,  preserve, protect and defend the 
Constitution of the United States."
.
Y) Pursuant to 18 U.S. Code § 5 - 
"United States" defined Current through 
Pub. L. 113-103:  
For the purpose of defining "United States" within the context of the 
Reprieves and pardons clause of the Constitution of the United States, 
in Article Two, Section Two, Paragraph One: 
The term “United States” 
shall include  all places and waters,  continental or insular, 
subject to the jurisdiction  of the United States, except the Canal Zone.
These places and waters shall include all States and all county, parish and 
municipal Governments in the United States; and all Territorial governments 
of any kind, and all jurisdictional subdivisions of all States and Territories 
of the United States; including private subdivisions with a governning
charter such as all homeowners' associations or any other associations which
effectively act as a de facto Government or wield any governing powers. 


Thus the Constitution shall be construed, by these presents, 
to empower the President to grant Reprieves and Pardons in the context 
of both Federal and State legal matters, both directly and through 
the agency of his good offices such as the Office of the Pardon Attorney.

i) Whenever a Governor of any State or Territory; or any other person
who is in a position of egregious influence over any Governorship
of any State or Territory, shall have previously prosecuted a
criminal conviction or possibly influenced a sentencing or other 
punishment against any individual seeking a pardon in the context
of a State-related question of clemency or law, 
no official in any branch of the Federal Government may lawfully
remand the question of an Executive pardon to the State or Territory
wherein any such conflict of interest in the context of any request
for a pardon shall be seen plainly to exist; but any such pardon
request shall imperatively be handled at the level of the good offices
of the President, including the Office of the Pardon Attorney of the
United States, without delay.


Z) The phrase "except in cases of impeachment"
will preclude and forbid any exercise of Presidential or Gubernatorial
power to be exercised to the benefit of any individual who is charged
with an impeachable offense, in the context of any impeachment 
proceeding which has already formally begun. 
The President shall not be precluded from pardoning individuals who 
are affected by the results appurtenant to a context of impeachment, 
but who are not directly named as the individual to be impeached.
There is nothing in the Constitution which forbids the President from 
granting a pardon to an individual who is not at the time of
the granting of a Reprieve and pardon the individual named in an 
impeachment case, but who could likely be in the future, the
individual named in any case or indictment of impeachment.  
However, once any case of impeachment begins, the power of the
President or any Governor to quash the case immediately and
for all time ceases, 
because the honor of the law must be upheld.
