Olddog is going to have surgery this morning on his right index finger (Trigger Finger). And being a competitive Steel Challenge Pistol Shooter, this is a great concern for him. Wish Him Luck! He may not be on line for a while as His left hand is only usable for giving politicians the, you know what!
According to the original intent of our Constitution, Ted Cruz & Marco Rubio are not eligible to be President because their fathers weren’t US citizens at the times they were born. So they are not “natural born citizens”. So! How is this handled? Who calls it? Who makes the ruling? Do we “file a lawsuit” and let federal judges decide? “Slap your hands!”, our Framers would say. They would say, “READ THE CONSTITUTION AND SEE WHAT IS SUPPOSED TO HAPPEN!” [Our lives would be so much simpler – and our Country so much better off – if we read & supported our Constitution.]
Read the 12th Amendment. That sets forth the procedures for election of President and VP. Note that ELECTORS are supposed to be the ones making the selection – NOT THE PEOPLE. [There is a reason for that.] For an illustration of how this works, go HERE and read the subheadings, “Electors” Appointed by States Were To Choose The President! and The 12th Amendment Establishes Procedures For Voting By Electors. So! Assume we followed the Constitution on this issue and we get to the part where Congress is counting the votes as provided by 12th Amendment. And Lo! Congress discovers that the person who got the most votes for President is NOT QUALIFIED by reason of age, or not being a natural born citizen, or not having been for at least 14 years a Resident within the United States.
Obviously, it’s Congress’ job to make the ruling – to make the call – on whether the President and VP – selected by the ELECTORS – are qualified under Art. II, Sec. 1, clause 5.
So what happens if Congress finds that the person with the most votes for President is not qualified? We look to Sec. 3 of the 20th Amendment. It tells us what happens. If the President elect has failed to qualify, then the VP elect shall act as President… Now, read the rest of that Section. We would also need to see whether Congress has made any of the authorized laws providing for such contingencies.
So, under the Constitution as written, it is Congress’ job to make the call as to whether the President elect and the VP elect are qualified.
THIS IS NOT AN ISSUE FOR THE FEDERAL COURTS TO DECIDE. That is because this is a “political question” – not a “legal question”. The power to make the ruling as to whether the president elect or the VP elect are qualified has been delegated to CONGRESS. Traditionally, federal courts have “abstained” from deciding “political questions”. We study this in our first year constitutional law class, when we study judicial “abstention” from certain kinds of cases including cases which involve “political questions” or the exercise of powers delegated to the Legislative or Executive branches. When a power is delegated to one of the “political branches” (Legislative or Executive), the federal courts (the “legal branch”) have traditionally declined to interfere and substitute their judgment for that of the “political branch” to which the Power was delegated. And what if Congress gives an ineligible person a pass – as they did with obama? WELL THEN, SHAME ON US –
BECAUSE WE ARE THE ONES WHO ELECTED THOSE IGNORANT COWARDS TO OFFICE!
I Sure would love to lock Publius Huldah and Judge Anna Maria Riezinger in the same room and find out what they believed when they were let out. Most certainly they are both highly intelligent scholars, but they obviously have some different opinions on American governance. My preference would be for them both to unite on Anna’s research. Maybe then the ignorant sheeple would understand they have been beguiled from the cradle and are not qualified to be American’s. AMERICA HAS BEEN UNDER THE RULE OF THE INTERNATIONAL BANKING CARTEL FROM THE GET GO, AND IT IS “NOT A DEMOCRACY”! IT’S A CORPORATION! THE ORIGINAL CONSTITUTION IS ONLY USED TO KEEP US CONFUSED WHEN IT SUITS THEM. THE CORPORATE BY-LAWS ARE THE CORPORATIONS CONSTITUTION.
December 17, 2015-TPATH- Regardless of which presidential candidate you support, it is highly unlikely that any one of them will be able to turn back the pages of time to when America was a shining city on a hill. Many believe that our plummet from nobility is multi-faceted and cannot be laid squarely at any one person’s feet or attributed to any one cause. That opinion may not be accurate.
Our Founding Fathers created a form of government that would guide us through a myriad of challenges. They did not do so lightly. They researched. They argued. They debated and they agonized over every aspect of our Constitution, fully understanding the final draft’s attributes and loopholes. For more than a century and a half, the system worked – even through the Civil War and the immoral challenges of slavery. The ability of the Constitution to be amended was significant and our humble Founders understood that significance. They also understood that this significant attribute could also lead to our national demise. Had they been prophets, they would have also foreseen the damage progressive thinking would have on our way of life and the liberties we hold so dear. Prophecy aside, they did understand that the survival of these United States was dependant on a moral and religious people.
In October of 1798 in an address to General Walker, John Adams is quoted as saying: “…Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.” Adams knew what he said and why he said it. It is unfortunate that only this segment of his speech is quoted. Its entirety speaks volumes to the primary cause responsible for our impending national doom.
Therefore, as we ponder how to “Make America Great Again,” perhaps we should be looking to the wisdom of one of our most passionate founders and not to any modern day political figure. Adams not only stated clearly that morality and religion were foundational principles of our Constitution, he also stated why. Below are segments of that speech that apply directly to us today.
…But should the people of America once become capable of that deep simulation towards one another, and towards foreign nations, which assumes the language of justice and moderation while it is practising (sic) iniquity and extravagance…in the most captivating manner the charming pictures of candor, frankness, and sincerity, while it is rioting in rapine and insolence, this country will be the most miserable habitation in the New World; because we have no government armed with power capable of contending with human passions unbridled by morality and religion. Avarice, ambition, revenge, or gallantry, would break the strongest cords of our Constitution as a whale goes through a net. Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other… (Emphasis added)
Adams may not have known Obama, or One World Order people, or our feckless representatives personally, but he certainly knew about the character traits they imbue. He understood that a government that sought to protect personal liberty could not do that if its citizens were not capable of governing themselves on a personal basis. No, Adams was not a prophet. However, his understanding of human nature and its effects on government can be considered prophetic.
As intuitive as Adams may have been, even he did not foresee a movement that would initialize a stronghold on the very notion of Providence and its God – a movement that would be A-religious and consequently A-moral. Arguably, Charles Darwin was as influential as Christ Himself on succeeding cultures and governments. Darwinism clearly gives license to those wishing to become their own gods, since the real God and His precepts and principles are removed from their belief system. The American Progressive/Regressive Movement is the best example of a philosophy based on Darwinism that is changing our country.
And like its predecessor millennia ago in the Garden of Eden, these modern day Adams and Eves that embrace evolution believe they can create their own morality and consequently their own version of truth. It’s really the same old apple. In reality, their logic is not flawed. If God isn’t the creator, either He is a liar or He doesn’t exist. If the latter is true, then the progressive/regressives would be correct. Absolute truth would not exist, and therefore subjective truth reigns. They fail to realize that if truth is not absolute, it is not truth at all but merely opinion. In addition to just being plain wrong, the problem is that their subjective application has filled our prisons, destroyed our system of government, and perverted our children. It has perverted the very principle of freedom of religion into freedom from religion and in so doing has slowly been corrupting our moral foundation. As the Bible states: “If the foundations be destroyed, what can the righteous do?” Psalm 11:3.
Barack Obama, our present day progressive/regressive icon, was not the first narcissist to embrace racism. Hitler, Stalin and Mao beat him to the punch – all evolutionists that believed they could set their own standards based on their subjective truths. We know these names and the horrors they committed unbridled by absolute truth or righteousness that respects life; however, there were still others before them. All were charismatic and passionate speakers. These tyrants capitalized on a misinformed and misguided populace that had no standard to judge their rhetoric by. And there is no absolute standard except for the Word of God, which is systematically being removed from the public conscience under the guise of freedom of religion. Under these conditions, it should be no surprise that we, as a nation, have fallen with such force and such speed. Adams’ statement that our government was made for a moral and religious people should be echoing throughout our collective national soul. Banishing God has not led to a Utopian way of life. It never has and it never will. So whether our national demise is multi-faceted or not, its cause is singular: we are fast becoming a Godless nation – unfortunately proving Adams correct.
So while we debate which political party is better or which presidential candidate can restore America to greatness, the wise among us will be standing on their knees and waiving the banner of truth and truth’s one and only God. If America repents, and if America turns from legalizing immorality and justifying infanticide among other things, then and only then does America have a chance of restoring its greatness. And to be sure, greatness cannot be restored to us by any man except the man Jesus Christ. While Christ may not be running for the presidency, let’s once again elect Him as our one and only king, as they did at the time of the Revolutionary War. If you are so inclined, I encourage you to join with me in coining a new, but old cry:
No King but Jesus; No Sovereign but God.
Simple words but they carry the greatest hope for a dying nation.
I am not a legal counsel for the General (Dunford). We are all working on reclaiming American assets for Americans. For right now, it’s improper to call what we are doing a “New Republic”— that will require a public education process, each one making their political status (citizenship, etc.) choices, the election of Fiduciary Deputies from each State to attend a Continental Congress to either amend or abolish the existing actual Constitution.
For now, we have saved The Constitution for the united States of America. The rats sought to “vacate” the contract by entering the UNITED STATES, INC. into bankruptcy without naming a successor to contract. That left the “federal” side of the contract vacant and flapping in the wind. We formed an agreement with the American Native Nations — the Athabasca and Lakota– to fulfill the federal side. We issued two sets of Sovereign Letters Patent, one to reaffirm the united States of America, and one to establish a new arrangement with the Native people to bring them out of their POW status and incarceration in the Jurisdiction of the Sea and put them back on the land as free, sovereign, and independent people. We then sealed this arrangement with a Declaration of Joint Sovereignty, spelling out the intent of our actions.
These actions were sent by Registered Mail to the Pope, the Queen, the UN Security Council, the United Nations Secretary General and others.
For the first time since the original Constitution was adopted, the federal side of the contract is now in the hands of Americans devoted to America— not British (Federal Reserve) or French (IMF) interlopers. For the first time, the Federal Agents have a vested interest in truly and honestly protecting America and Americans, because if they hurt or plunder us, they hurt and plunder themselves.
And now we are all going after the assets that are owed to Americans which have been purloined by international banks and the “governmental services corporations” they have run as storefronts —under conditions of gross fraud and deceit.
Please note there is no “statute of limitation” on the crime of fraud, much less malicious fraud tort claims.
I have heard it often said that there is no one right way to accomplish a goal. I agree. However, I would add that while there is no such thing as “one right way” to achieve an objective, this does not mean there aren’t numerous WRONG ways to achieve an objective.
Doing “something” is not always better than doing nothing if that “something” is based on terrible strategy. Unfortunately, there are people out there with otherwise good intentions, even in the liberty movement, that seem to think that taking action without planning is preferable to patience. They do not understand that there is such a thing as negative returns. The reality is that action is easy. Patience and planning are difficult. Emotional reaction is simple. Quiet professionalism is complicated.
This is the dynamic that is plaguing the liberty movement today; the battle between our emotional drive to jump headlong into conflict with our progressively corrupt establishment, and the absolute necessity for intelligent strategy and proper timing. The issue here is not “fighting.” Most of us know and accept the fact that a fight is coming whether we like it or not. I say by all means, let’s fight, but fighting is not enough. If we fight, we must fight TO WIN, and this requires fighting smart.
On the other side of the coin, the weak handed and weak hearted will argue that fighting in any respect is “useless” or “immoral” and will result in failure. This is the pacifist camp, which never produces much in the way of practical solutions. There are very useful and peaceful methods for non-participation and nullification, most of which I am happy to promote. That said, non-participation is only part of the battle. If you are dealing with a psychopathic adversary (which we are), ultimately that adversary will use overt violence to stop you from nullifying their authority. If you are not willing to use active self defense against true evil based on some deluded Gandhi complex, then you and the historical memory of you will be erased. It is perfectly possible for a person to fight in self defense while maintaining his core principles.
If you fight, then there is a chance. If you do not fight, then failure is guaranteed. The “odds” are irrelevant. How you fight (fighting smart) is the only matter of importance.
Recently I have seen a growing contingent of people within the movement that seek a fight but question the concept of planning or waiting. They’ll argue that planning is somehow impractical, or that there will never be a perfect time for action. This way of thinking has only been inflated by the latest events in Burns, Oregon.
The Oregon standoff is a stunning example of how emotional action leads to failure and tragedy. Many will argue over the circumstances surrounding the death of Lavoy Finicum — did he reach into his jacket, or was he reacting to being shot? Were the police officers involved in fear for their lives, or were they out for blood? The majority of liberty activists will undoubtedly assume malicious intent on the part of the government due to their track record of murder and lies. I don’t blame them. That said, I would point out that while Finicum may be dead because of ill intent on the part of trigger happy cops, he was put in that position in the first place due to inadequate planning and leadership.
The argument that the FBI should have never been in Burns in the first place overlooks the fact that Bundy and team, strategically speaking, should not have been there either. They could have been in a far better position if only they had thought their conundrum through.
Oregon and the death of Finicum are not failures on the part of the liberty movement. They are failures on the part of Bundy and team, who refused to listen to scores of people with far more experience and knowledge in such situations; the same people who tried to help the occupiers adjust their tactics and offer them safer ground and safer footing. The failure in Oregon is what happens when amateurs, not just in training but in tactical philosophy, undertake a rebellion.
Some will argue that experienced tacticians within the movement (and there are many) refused to show up for the fight, and thus sentenced the occupiers to defeat. I would argue that the Oregon standoff was FUBAR from the very beginning. From its inception it was doomed. Half the movement saw it plain as day. For me, the end result was obvious.
A team of well-meaning but unorganized and untrained activists thrust themselves into a situation beyond their capabilities and under the potential influence of agents provocateur. There was no vetting for random strangers seeking to join their ranks; no direct goals and no clearly defined strategy, only vague demands and notions. No thought of planning one or two steps ahead, let alone five steps ahead. A circus atmosphere inspiring public ridicule rather than public respect. A complete lack of understanding of the gravity of the situation leading to a false sense of safety and comfort, or in some cases even hubris.
This is why most liberty tacticians had no interest in showing up to the Oregon standoff; not because they were fearful, not because they are “sunshine patriots,” not because they are waiting for a “perfect” moment that will never come to kick off a revolution.
They did not show up because it was a scenario that could not be salvaged. It was a carnival. Period.
To compare events to the first American Revolution, I do not see the standoff and the shooting of Finicum as a Lexington Green moment (though it hasn’t fully ended yet). Rather, I see it as a Boston Massacre moment. The Boston Massacre was an absolute tragedy, but also not a cut-and-dried affair. John Adams, acting as legal defense for the British soldiers accused of initiating bloodshed, realized that the Sons Of Liberty were desperate to use the event politically to rally support for direct revolution, but also understood that the timing and the circumstances were utterly wrong. The Sons of Liberty wanted to hold up the Boston
Massacre as a symbol of ALL the oppression the colonials suffered under the crown. Adams, though an avid champion of the cause, correctly treated it as a singular tragedy and not an opportunity for exploitation.
The colonials would eventually enter into revolution at Lexington and Concord; clearly defined defensive scenarios in which the militia obstructed the path of British soldiers sent to arrest leaders of the Sons of Liberty (Samuel Adams and John Hancock), as well as to confiscate firearms and black powder caches. The militia had a direct goal (to impede the British from reaching Adams and Hancock) and the British used clear and overt force against them, resulting in an immediate and violent justified response by other militias. This is one right way to start a rebellion. So if Oregon represents an example of the wrong way to do things, what is a better way? I described alternative methods with a much greater chance of success in my article “Real Strategies For Removing Federal Presence From Western Lands,” but I would like to explore beyond specific tactics and discuss mindset — the overall philosophy behind a winning rebellion in our modern era.
Divided We Win, United We Fall
This might sound counter-intuitive; I’ll explain.
A movement should be united in its stance and its values in order to succeed and I believe the liberty movement is indeed united for the most part on these terms. However, when it comes to concrete action the more centralized our efforts the less we will achieve and the more likely we are to fail.
I find it interesting that whenever a call goes out to the movement to take action it usually involves concentrating large masses of us into a small area with no outlined plan or directives. With the exception of Bundy Ranch, which I believe was entirely organic in how it came about, most of these calls to arms are initiated by questionable personalities or people possibly under the influence of provocateurs who seek to march us all into a box, whether it be a bridge in Washington, D.C. or a scrub brush refuge in Oregon. In the face of a vastly superior opponent in terms of arms and technology, it seems to me that the establishment would prefer us all to be hyper-focused on only one battle space at one time, putting all our eggs in one basket and leaving us vulnerable.
Instead, a rebellion in this day and age must be asymmetric in nature; meaning smaller groups acting covertly on their own initiative everywhere rather than in only one place. Amassing in one small region might be useful under very specific conditions, but if you want to pose an actual threat to a large criminal system, you need hundreds of events, all of them far better planned than Oregon. Organization Through Localism
If you cannot even secure your own family or your own neighborhood from potential threats, then why would you expect to be successful in projecting out to a whole other state and community and securing it instead? Local organization is more important than national organization or grand posturing on the national stage. If you can strengthen your own community while others do the same across the country, then the effects will be felt nationally by default. Far more can be accomplished through localism than by rolling the dice on mass theatricality and Alamo-style tactics. Communications Networking
Unity does not come best through concentrated action but through solid communications. The fact that most of the liberty movement has no coms networks outside of the mainstream grid is a sad state of affairs that will lead to our downfall. As far as my information shows, the Oregon occupiers had no ham radio communications and relied primarily on cell phones. This is a disaster waiting to happen.
When there is a national network of ham operators providing communications to the liberty movement, then and only then can we claim to have the means to organize effectively outside of our own communities. Do not assume for a second that you will have access to mainstream grid communications when you need them.
Prepare To Aid People Outside The Movement
The establishment would like nothing more than for the liberty movement to completely isolate itself from the general public. The more we refuse to interact with our communities the easier it will be to paint us as dangerous outsiders. The more we offer valuable services and training to a community, such as classes on emergency medical response, personal defense against active shooters, food storage and preparedness, etc., the more likely we will be seen as valuable assets to that community in the wake of a crisis. I have been undertaking such efforts in my own community for the past couple of years and have met many excellent people who are of like mind but not necessarily “activists” in the traditional sense. If you discount efforts to improve your local situation and to build bridges, you do so at your own peril.
Focus On The True Culprits
Eventually, someone is going to have to bring the international banking elites to justice for their direct influence over government corruption and destructive economic policy. Making stands against the Bureau of Land Management and other questionable federal agencies might be a necessary part of this fight, but the fight will never end until the original perpetrators are removed at the root. Beware of any group or “leader” who calls you to action but ignores the money-elite; they are probably more interested in exploiting you than helping you.
Perhaps most important of all is the need for liberty activists to adopt an attitude of quiet professionalism. This means analyzing situations objectively. This means having one’s heart in the right place without being driven emotionally. This means attaining personal excellence in any field of knowledge that might help you to gain victory.
Winning this fight will require the extraordinary dedication of extraordinary individuals; anything less will result in disaster. Giving our all does not mean simply being willing to sacrifice our lives. That may be what happens, but this cannot be our only trump card.
If you are not striving every day to master your own skills and initiative then you are not giving your all. If you are not organizing effectively at the local level because you assume no one will listen to you, then learn to communicate better and try again. If your only plan is to go out guns blazing, then you might as well stay home because you will do more harm for the movement than good.
Become a local pillar rather than a mere complainer. Seek to produce results rather than demanding others do it for you. When you act, act intelligently. Be steady in your resolve and do not let anger or panic rule your thinking. Be fair in your assessments, and above all, once again, if you fight, fight to win. Fighting merely in the name of fighting is a fool’s game. If the movement had 10,000 individuals of this caliber victory would be assured against any odds.

Spending just five minutes onhttp://www.annavonreitz.com/ should convince you that America can still be saved, IF you will get off your ass and get involved by spreading her work to everyone you can. Consider what we could do if one hundred million Americans were involved in promoting her work. Now, what’s your excuse?
(I don’t have time!) DUH! I’ve heard that so many times I could puke! Do you honestly believe that our lives’ are not as chaotic as yours? I would love to go down to my pistol range and spend the whole day there, every day! Besides shooting a thousand rounds; there are hundreds of target configurations I would love to try out, which means real hard labor moving steel plate stands around. BUT I DON’T! Because if I sit on my fanny or play all day I will not have fulfilled my obligation to destroy tyranny where-ever I find it.
Remember, our children are going to pay for our laziness.
(I would lose all my friends!) Hea, if they get mad tell them to go piss up a rope. They are not Americans. They are useless eaters. They sponge off the labor of Patriots who are involved in preserving freedom.
(I’m afraid of the federal cops throwing me in jail and stealing my children.) What the hell do you think we are doing this for? Taking your children is not half as bad as Big Uncle making socialist out of them.
Let me make a suggestion. Pick up a copy of this book; PUTIN’S KLEPTOCRACY by Karen Dawisha……..READ IT, and consider what it’s like to live in Russia, then consider how stupid it is to allow our government to be like theirs. If that doesn’t get your attention and make you resolve to help spread the word, then nothing can save you from it.
If you refuse to take any advice from me, below is a warning from a much more qualified man you might want to read.
Even before his coronation in 1626, King Charles I of England was heavily in debt.
His predecessors King James and Queen Elizabeth had run the royal treasury down to almost nothing.
Costly war and military folly had taken its toll. The crown had simply wasted far too much money, and taken in too little.
To make matters worse, King Charles was constantly at odds with parliament.
The English government was completely dysfunctional, with constant bickering, personal attacks, and very little sound decision-making.
Parliament refused to pass the taxes that Charles needed to make ends meet. But at the same time, the King was legally unable to levy his own taxes without parliamentary approval.
So, faced with financial desperation, he began to look for alternative ways to raise revenue.
One way was relying on practically ancient, obscure laws that still existed on the books.
The Distraint of Knighthood, for example, was based on an act from 1278, roughly three and a half centuries before Charles’ coronation.
The Act gave him the legal authority to fine all men with a minimum level of income who did not present themselves in person at his coronation.
Charles also commandeered vast amounts of land, restoring the boundaries of the royal forests to where they had been during the time of King Edward I in the 13th century.
He then fined anyone who encroached on the land, and resold much of it to industries that were supportive of his reign.
King Charles even resorted to begging; in July 1626, he requested that his subjects “lovingly, freely, and voluntarily” give him money.
When that didn’t work, the King levied a Forced Loan in September of that year, effectively confiscating people’s funds under the guise of ‘borrowing’ it.
He raised about £250,000, the equivalent of about $7.5 billion today. Emboldened by his success, Charles eventually began to seize assets directly, including all the gold on deposit being held at the Royal Mint– money that belonged to the merchants and goldsmiths of England.
At one point Charles even forced the East India Company to ‘loan’ him their pepper and spice inventory for £63,283. He subsequently sold everything in the market at a steep loss.
If any of this sounds familiar, it should. Today there is no shortage of nations that are facing fiscal desperation. Most of Europe. Japan, & The United States.
In the Land of the Free, the government has spent years… decades… engaged in the most wasteful folly, from multi-trillion dollar wars to a multi-billion dollar website that doesn’t work.
US debt just hit $19 trillion a few days ago. And it’s only going higher. We can already see the depths of the government’s financial desperation. Over the years, the government has effectively levied a ‘forced loan’ totaling more than $2.6 trillion on the Social Security Trust Fund, whose ultimate beneficiaries are the taxpayers of the United States.
Last year the government stole more from Americans through ‘Civil Asset Forfeiture’ than all the thieves in the United States combined.
On December 31, 2015, the US government confiscated $19.3 billion in capital from the Federal Reserve, which, by the way, was already very thinly capitalized.
The government published over 80,000 pages of laws, bills, rules, regulations, and executive orders last year. Just this morning they published another 308 pages.
It’s impossible for anyone to keep up with all of these rules. And yet each of these can carry civil, criminal, and monetary penalties, including a fine now for not having health insurance.
As Mark Twain used to say, history may not repeat, but it certainly rhymes.
Financially insolvent governments of major superpowers do not simply go gentle into that good night.
They don’t suddenly turn over a new leaf and start embracing economic freedom.
No. They get worse. More desperate. More destructive.
Should we honestly believe that the government can continue to indebt itself indefinitely without consequence, as if the largest accumulation of debt that has ever existed in the history of the world is somehow consequence-free?
At some point, fiscal reality always catches up. Maybe not at $19 trillion. Maybe not even at $20 trillion.
Maybe it takes 3 months. Or 3 years. But somewhere out there is a straw that can break the camel’s back.
Never forget that if something is predictable, then it’s also preventable.
And facing such obvious trends, it makes all the sense in the world to take some simple, rational steps to put together your own Plan B.

Big Brother does not watch us, by his choice. We watch him, by ours. There is no need for wardens or gates or Ministries of Truth. When a population becomes distracted by trivia, when cultural life is redefined as a perpetual round of entertainments, when serious public conversation becomes a form of baby-talk, when, in short, a people become an audience and their public business a vaudeville act, then a nation finds itself at risk; a culture-death is a clear possibility. — Professor Neil Postman
If there are two spectacles that are almost guaranteed to render Americans passive viewers, incapable of doing little more than cheering on their respective teams, it’s football and politics—specifically, the Super Bowl and the quadrennial presidential election. Both football and politics encourage zealous devotion among their followers, both create manufactured divisions that alienate one group of devotees from another, and both result in a strange sort of tunnel vision that leaves the viewer oblivious to anything else going on around them apart from the “big game.”
Both football and politics are televised, big-money, advertising-driven exercises in how to cultivate a nation of armchair enthusiasts who are content to sit, watch and be entertained, all the while convincing themselves that they are active contributors to the outcome. Even the season schedules are similar in football and politics: the weekly playoffs, the blow-by-blow recaps, the betting pools and speculation, the conferences, and then the final big championship game.
In the same way, both championship events are costly entertainment extravaganzas that feed the nation’s appetite for competition, consumerism and carnivalesque stunts. In both scenarios, cities bid for the privilege of hosting key athletic and political events. For example, San Francisco had to raise close to $50 million just to host the 50th Super Bowl, with its deluxe stadium, Super Bowl City, free fan village, interactive theme park, and free Alicia Keys concert, not including the additional $5 million cost to taxpayers for additional security. Likewise, it costs cities more than $60 million to host the national presidential nominating conventions for the Republicans and Democrats.
Don’t get me wrong. I’m not suggesting that there is anything wrong with enjoying the entertainment that is football or politics. However, where we go wrong as a society is when we become armchair quarterbacks, so completely immersed in the Big Game or the Big Campaign that we are easily controlled by the powers-that-be—the megacorporations who run both shows—and oblivious to what is really going on around us.
For instance, while mainstream America has been fixated on the contenders for the Vince Lombardi Trophy and the White House, the militarized, warring surveillance state has been moving steadily forward. Armed drones, increased government surveillance and spying, SWAT team raids, police shootings of unarmed citizens, and the like continue to plague the country. None of these dangers have dissipated. They have merely disappeared from our televised news streams. In this way, television is a “dream come true” for an authoritarian society.
Television isolates people so they are not joining together to govern themselves. As clinical psychologist Bruce Levine notes, viewing television puts one in a brain state that makes it difficult to think critically, and it quiets and subdues a population. And spending one’s free time isolated and watching TV interferes with our ability to translate our outrage over governmental injustice into activism, and thus makes it easier to accept an authority’s version of society and life.
Supposedly the reason why television—and increasingly movies—are so effective in subduing and pacifying us is that viewers are mesmerized by what TV-insiders call “technical events.” These, according to Levine, are “quick cuts, zoom-ins, zoom-outs, rolls, pans, animation, music, graphics, and voice-overs, all of which lure viewers to continue watching even though they have no interest in the content.” Such technical events, which many action films now incorporate, spellbind people to continue watching. Televised entertainment, no matter what is being broadcast, has become the nation’s new drug high. Researchers found that “almost immediately after turning on the TV, subjects reported feeling more relaxed, and because this occurs so quickly and the tension returns so rapidly after the TV is turned off, people are conditioned to associate TV viewing with a lack of tension.”
Not surprisingly, the United States is one of the highest TV-viewing nations in the world. Indeed, a Nielsen study reports that American screen viewing is at an all-time high. For example, the average American watches approximately 151 hours of television per month. That does not include the larger demographic of screen-watchers who watch their entertainment via their laptops, personal computers, cell phones, tablets and so on.
Historically, television has been used by those in authority to quiet citizen unrest and pacify disruptive people. In fact, television-viewing has also been a proven tactic for ensuring compliance in prisons. “Faced with severe overcrowding and limited budgets for rehabilitation and counseling, more and more prison officials are using TV to keep inmates quiet,” according to Newsweek. Joe Corpier, a convicted murderer, when interviewed said, “If there’s a good movie, it’s usually pretty quiet through the whole institution.”
In other words, television and other screen viewing not only helps to subdue people but, as Levine concludes, it also zombifies and pacifies us and subverts democracy.
Television viewing, no matter what we’re collectively watching—whether it’s American Idol, the presidential debates or the Super Bowl—is a group activity that immobilizes us and mesmerizes us with collective programming. In fact, research also shows that regardless of the programming, viewers’ brain waves slow down, thus transforming them into a more passive, nonresistant state.
As such, television watching today results in passive group compliance in much the same way that marching was used by past regimes to create group indoctrination. Political advisor Bertram Gross documents how Adolf Hitler employed marching as a technique to mobilize people in groups by immobilizing them. Hitler and his regime leaders discovered that when people gather in groups and do the same thing—such as marching or cheering at an entertainment or sporting event—they became passive, non-thinking non-individuals.
By replacing “marching” with electronic screen devices, we have the equivalent of Hitler’s method of population control. Gross writes: As a technique of immobilizing people, marching requires organization and, apart from the outlay costs involved, organized groups are a potential danger. They might march to a different drum or in the wrong direction….TV is more effective. It captures many more people than would ever fill the streets by marching—and without interfering with automobile traffic.
Equally disturbing is a university study which indicates that we become less aware of our individual selves and moral identity in a group. The study’s findings strongly suggest that when we act in groups, we tend to consider our moral behavior less while moving in lockstep with the group. Thus, what the group believes or does, be it violence or inhumanity, does not seem to lessen the need to be a part of a group, whether it be a mob or political gathering.
So what does this have to do with the Super Bowl and the upcoming presidential election? If fear-based TV programming—or programming that encourages rivalries and factions—makes people more afraid and distrustful of one another, then our current television lineup is exactly what is needed by an authoritarian society that depends on a “divide and conquer” strategy.
Moreover, according to Levine, authoritarian-based programming is more technically interesting to viewers than democracy-based programming. War and violence, for example, may be rather unpleasant in real life. However, peace and cooperation make for “boring television.”
What this means is that Super Bowl matches and presidential contests are merely more palatable, less bloody, manifestations of war suitable for television viewing audiences.
This also explains why television has become the medium of choice for charismatic politicians with a strong screen presence. They are essentially television performers—actors, if you will. Indeed, any successful candidate for political office—especially the President—must come off well on TV. Television has the lure of involvement. A politically adept president can actually make you believe you are involved in the office of the presidency.
The effective president, then, is essentially a television performer. As the renowned media analyst Marshall McLuhan recognized concerning television: “Potentially, it can transform the presidency into a monarchist dynasty.” If what we see and what we are told through the entertainment industrial complex—which includes so-called “news” shows—is what those in power deem to be in their best interests, then endless screen viewing is not a great thing for a citizenry who believe they possess choice and freedom. Mind you, the majority of what Americans watch on television is provided through channels controlled by a corporate elite of six mega corporations with the ability to foster a particular viewpoint or pacify its viewers on a large scale.
Unfortunately for us, the direction of the future, then, may be towards a Brave New World scenario where the populace is constantly distracted by entertainment, hooked on prescription drugs and controlled by a technological elite.
Freedom, as I make clear in my book Battlefield America: The War on the American People, is an action word. It means turning off your screen devices—or at least greatly reducing your viewing time—and getting active to take to stave off the emerging authoritarian government.
Aldous Huxley, George Orwell, and the countless science fiction writers and commentators have warned that we are in a race between getting actively involved in the world around us or facing disaster. If we’re watching, we’re not doing.
As television journalist Edward R. Murrow warned in a 1958 speech: We have currently a built-in allergy to unpleasant or disturbing information. Our mass media reflect this. But unless we get up off our fat surpluses and recognize that television in the main is being used to distract, delude, amuse, and insulate us, then television and those who finance it, those who look at it, and those who work at it, may see a totally different picture too late.
We lost Dottie Seese on Dec.11th – She saw far ahead of the time she wrote this piece. How many times does history have to be repeated before the People wake up and push the ENEMY WITHIN back into its’ hole?
American heritage has been demeaned, despised and desecrated. It has also been revised by revisionists who have graduated from universities that inculcate principles of the cultural revolutionaries. The South was uniquely regional in its character, belief system, social behavior and pride. A new “reconstruction” is mopping up where new, lesser and quieter “Shermans” have come and taken over its cities, media, schools and political arenas. The South will one day find its biscuits and gravy have been banned by the World Health Organization as nothing but flour and grease, and replaced by baked broccoli omelettes with sliced tomatoes. No Southerner will be permitted to refer to the Stars and Stripes as the “Union flag” and all displays of the Confederate battle flag will be banned under penalty of law. Free speech emanates from free thinking, and to control freedom of speech is eventually to change the direction and tenor of free thought.
The South has always been unique in character, something that the cultural revolution cannot permit in any area of the country. Arizonans were once rugged individualists. That situation has been corrected by cultural revolutionaries quietly moving over from California and occupying the major cities and some of the pricier small towns. In each case the newcomers took command by vocal minorities (or majorities) and initiating activism for liberal agendas. The only way the Arizona state seal escaped being altered for having the motto “Ditat Deus” (God provides) is that no one speaks Latin. There is no need to make an issue out of things the general public doesn’t comprehend, the objective is to make issues out of what the public understands all too well, and to do it for great causes like “the children” or “the environment” or, that greatest of all masques, “the future of our country.”
The Revolution is over, and Americans are desensitized to the point where nothing short of an attack on New York, Washington, or San Francisco will get their attention, a larger attack than Nine-Eleven. Cases of outrage are few. The government ran some tests as to the outrage threshold of Americans and found it was peculiarly dense, satisfactory to the cultural commandants, when free Americans shrugged their shoulders at:
The killing of Vicky Weaver at Ruby Ridge by an FBI sniper;
The incinerating of women and children at the Branch Davidian compound near Waco, Texas;
The institution of martial law in Georgia twice, once in 1996 for the Olympics and again in June 2004 for the G8 Summit meeting on Sea Island.
The outsourcing of American border security to Accenture, a Bermuda-based corporation (formerly Arthur Andersen and Co. of the Enron scandal infamy), to pay offshore crooks up to $10 billion to “defend” the American borders, but no one has said which way the guns will be facing. We do know that the U.S. Marines, when questioned as to whether they would fire on fellow Americans, said “no.” Outsourcing to mercenaries is the only answer to a military that is loyal to its countrymen until they can be replaced by those whose mindset is not to protect the people but only the state and the powers that run it.
Whoever controls the firepower controls the state, which is why the insistence of the various UN and liberal American globalists that average citizens surrender their guns. Los Angeles is out of control with gangs and a police force that is not controlling them. Murder rates in both Los Angeles, California and Phoenix, Arizona are staggering.
It will become necessary, of course, to have some sort of martial law to provide for the safety of our citizens, and the citizens will cry for protection at any price. After that, the success of The Second Revolution can be announced, but then it will be so obvious it will need no announcement, like daybreak. Or nightfall.
The Constitution is worth no more than the integrity of the judiciary that interprets it, so it can stand as the “living” framework for our nation as long as no one uses it to limit governmental authority over subjugated citizens.
Education has degenerated to little more than federal indoctrination, carried out through university level, for the purpose of instilling in young minds the worthlessness of the American heritage and the future of the new order to come. Heritage, ancestry, tradition, morality, religion, family lines and any other allegiances are worthless to statists and will be educated out of the newer generations just as they are being despised publicly and anyone who dares to speak to the contrary is expelled or otherwise disciplined for egregious behavior. Students are the tools of the order to come, to carry on where the mortal leaders of this generation leave off.
The shot that signaled the onset of the Second Revolution was the shot that killed the late president John F. Kennedy. The year 1963 saw prayers banned in schools, and the Christians didn’t oppose it, although something over 80% of this nation declares that they are “Christian.” That probably means they do not belong to any other religion, grandma was a Christian, or they go to church twice a year. JFK was about to do away with the Federal Reserve, which is neither part of the federal government nor a true reserve, it is a cartel of US and foreign bankers. They control the money supply of the United States, and they took the hard currency upon which our monetary system was based. When Kennedy announced his intentions, he did not live long.
The Second Revolution continued with the Vietnam war protests. Regardless of the benefit or uselessness of the war, the hippie movement, the flower children and flag burners were tolerated by Americans who shrugged as long as nothing was happening on their block. It was just something on the news. But it brought immorality into vogue, made way for the feminist bra-burning protests, and eventually the gay rights movement. Then came the drug dealers and cartels from around the world. Those were followed by an open border policy to the south, so that millions of illegal invaders could dilute the remnant of American culture by their sheer numbers and their general lawlessness. The sex trade became part of America’s corporate structure and philosophy, as was exposed during the war in Kosovo, then disappeared from journalistic sight.
Every bit of the above and more is available through the internet and breaking news wires. Such sources often yield interesting stories that are “timed out” and never picked up by major media. People have asked how I get my information. Via the internet, from village chat out in diners and markets, wherever I can pick up American thought and global information. The only work left to do for a writer is to connect the stories and conversations and make a coherent picture out of it, then type. The times, trends and events are out there for all to see, but most folks are too busy to look.
Many well-meaning Americans are waiting for the right time to fight the takeover of America by the New World Order. They are expecting a revolution. But … the revolution came, in fact it began over forty years ago. They were waiting for gunfire and got professors. They were waiting for tanks in the streets before it was time, so they got gay rights parades instead. They turned to homeschooling after the government had anticipated a small rebellion and instead merely got rules and requirements for homeschool curricula. The list could go on, but everything the honest American patriots were waiting for had been anticipated and circumvented by a different type of revolution.
The globalists are evil, but they are not stupid. Their planning has been better than anyone gave them credit for being able to accomplish.
It was time to “shoot the bastards” four decades ago but no one saw the handwriting on the wall. Now the wall is encircling us and everything we should like to see done to restore America. That will take a third revolution, because the second succeeded in taking our liberties and twisting our values, our mindsets and abolishing our cultural heritage. It was right out in plain sight, and no one saw. Now the internet writers are corresponding with each other while major media, a mind-control system straight from Stalin’s old Pravda, keeps spewing the doctrine of the new order in politically correct language and with slanted stories that the majority of Americans believe.
Written in June, 2004, from Occupied America.
Dottie, you are sorely missed, but your words will live forever in the minds of free people who accept no authority but Jesus Christ. Man made laws will never last the test of time. They will fade away like the after affects of a hurricane are forgotten.
Russia’s air defense missiles, the S-400 have been moved into position in defense of Russian ICBM’s which is being readied for World War III. Russia’s TASS Agency,as reported by Next News Network, is reporting that 10 missile regiments of Russia’s Strategic Missile Force are combat ready and are now positioned at the highest level of alert. In a press release, the Strategic Missile Force’s press office stated that Seven regiments armed with Topol, Topol-M and Yars mobile missile systems will advance for combat patrols in the Ivanovo, Novosibirsk, Sverdlovsk, Kirov and Irkutsk Regions, the Altai Territory and the Republic of Mary E. The press office further stated that, “The strategic missile forces will practice moving missile systems to field positions, performing marches with the change of field positions, carrying out measures for organization of the ground, camouflaging, protecting and defending military hardware and field positions.” If this is not a provocative action by the Russians in preparation for World War III, I don’t know what constitute such an action.
If you chase a rabbit into his hole, he will stay there and starve to death if you keep making threats at the mouth of the hole. Is this what the Bankers Media Moguls are up to, or are they preparing to get rid of us worthless eaters?
Ever since the IMF doing business as the “UNITED STATES” together with its “STATE OF” franchises took over the governmental services contract owed to the organic states of the Union, members of Congress past and present have been racking up debt on our credit and claims against our property assets for purposes we never approved of and which do not benefit us.
You have also continued to charge us and receive credit for these “services” while failing to actually pay the debt and balance the accounts—effectively triple-dipping: taxing us on one side and forcing us to also provide our private credit as a second payment on the other and then leaving the original debt unpaid for us to pick up at the end of the day.
This is called “odious debt” and we have repudiated it and the entire system of fraud and racketeering giving rise to it.
The Federal Reserve System began over a hundred years ago, but fraud has no statute of limitations.
It is thought worldwide that you are representing the people and the organic states of the Union and that is what the people here thought, too. That’s why we trusted you. We honestly thought that you were occupying public offices and working for us, but instead, it turns out that you are occupying similarly named private corporate offices and whoever and whatever you have been working for, it isn’t us and it isn’t our states of the Union.
You’ve all been involved, knowingly or unknowingly, in a giant fraud scheme.
The aim of that fraud scheme has been to occupy what appear to be public offices and use them for private gain—mostly by manipulation of the currency and commodity markets, secondarily by outright theft and insider trading of natural resources, and last but not least, by identity theft, credit and securities fraud, and racketeering carried out by members of the American Bar Association and the Internal Revenue Service.
As of March 2015 the UNITED STATES has been insolvent. The parent corporations, the IMF and the UN Corp, have moved to take over the derelict shell and act as Successors to Contract. That means that you would all be working for Jacob Rothschild and we would all be on the meat hook to pay your debts for you as “presumed Sureties”—- the same exact scam introduced by FDR in the 1930’s.
It goes like this: create a bunch of bogus corporate franchises named after living Americans and the organic American states, name them as Sureties (Co-Signers) for your debts, seize upon their assets as collateral, run their credit into the stratosphere, claim bankruptcy protection for yourselves, and leave the victims to pay the “National Debt”—your debt—-without ever telling the poor, dumb people a word about what you’ve done while “representing” them.
Right on time, Barack Hussein Obama created a whole new raft of public transmitting utilities named after living Americans this past spring. He used nicknames styled like this: JOHN W. DOE. Was that JOHN WADE DOE or JOHN WILLIAM DOE or JOHN WOODWARD DOE? Nobody knows for sure, but millions of trusting Americans getting bills addressed to these bogus entities have been paying their bills for them.
This is a crime called personage— misrepresenting a living man as a corporate persona. It is closely allied with another crime called barratry — knowingly bringing claims in court or otherwise against such persons. This is what is happening in every courtroom in America.
At the same time that the Federal Reserve and your predecessors in office were putting this system into place they cut themselves another unbelievably good deal— a fixed “dollar for dollar” exchange rate for their own private bank script against our lawful money, the United States Dollar defined as one ounce of fine silver.
This meant that they could exchange their worthless Federal Reserve Notes — which are Promissory Notes or I.O.U.’s — for our silver. By the time Richard M. Nixon hit office the banks had not only cleaned the gold out of Fort Knox, they had heisted the silver, too, via this process.
This was all done at no cost to themselves, except the price of printing their filthy private script, which they charged back to the American People, plus interest.
The object of FDR’s confiscation of privately held gold and the draining of all the precious metals out of America was to amass all the precious metals on Earth in the control of the perpetrators of this scheme and to force everyone to use the private paper script as money in the meantime. Inevitably, the fiat script would devalue, allowing the perpetrators to benefit astronomically.
It cost about $30 for an ounce of gold in 1930. It now costs $1300 an ounce and could go a lot higher. The difference between $30 and $1300 or however much higher — is what the bankers are after. That’s their profit for this scheme. They intend to sell the gold and silver back to the grandsons of the people they stole it from for over a hundred times what it was worth in 1930.
And it’s all pure profit for the banks, because they never actually paid for any of it. It was either confiscated for them by the crooked politicians or it was “exchanged” for promises to pay that the Federal Reserve never made good on, because of course, they bankrupted the whole Federal Reserve System leaving the hapless American People and the organic states of the Union to “assume” their debt for them.
And you, members of Congress and Governors, are all up to your necks in this steaming manure pile of fraud, graft, theft, racketeering, and other repugnant criminality, caught with your pants down in front of the entire world.
Blame the banks.
They are the ones that planned all this out and executed their plan. They are the ones who ran these “governmental services corporations” behind the scenes and set them up to be look-alike, sound-alike false storefronts mimicking the actual government the American People are owed. They are the ones that incorporated everything in sight so as to remove both the assets and people of the land to the international jurisdiction of the sea, where we could all be plundered at will by them and their henchmen and employees, the members of the Bar Associations and the Internal Revenue Service.
It really is all the fault of the banks and the bankers, so why not just stand aside?
It’s either them or you. You get to choose.
You all desperately need to start doing your actual jobs—the jobs you were elected in good faith to do by the trusting American People.
You need to back our reclamation of our assets being held by the World Bank, IBRD, BIS, IMF, FEDERAL RESERVE and other banks.
You need to spearhead a worldwide drive to prosecute these criminal banks and bankers. Bernie Sanders is right. He only has the tip of the iceberg in view, but he’s right.
The ancient parasitic scourge has now taken refuge among the Chinese. It’s not their fault. They need to be warned like people exposed to a deadly flu virus.
A special note to “Governor” Brown of Oregon: you have no public office, no valid Oath of Office, and no bond worth toilet paper: you are working for a “self-insured” bankrupt corporate franchise. All attempts to use the FBI as armed commercial mercenaries on American soil are bound for failure. Everyone in the whole world knows what is going on here. You aren’t going to be able to hand the Clinton’s their uranium deal. Wash your hands and run. Fast.

We have seen some very heinous events over the past years of the Obama administration’s rule. We have seen the hollowing out of our military command structure (everyone is familiar with the list of field-grade and general staff-level commanders purged by Obama). We witnessed the “mothballing” of TARS (the balloon system complementing NORAD). We watch, as this administration shuts down production of the Tomahawk cruise missile, gets rid of the A-10 “Warthog” fleet that destroys tanks, and retires a dozen cruisers of the U.S. Navy, along with the aircraft carrier George Washington.
We watched one of the greatest examples of complicit treason and traitorous behavior as Obama sat on a well-lit stage in the 2012 Seoul Nuclear Summit, leaned over toward Dmitri Medvedev, and said, “Tell Vladimir, I will have more flexibility after the next election.” This statement concerned the stationing of U.S. missile defenses in eastern Europe and the reduction of ICBM’s (the United States’ missiles).
We watch as Obama has used his cabinet and the power-base he enjoyed when he had control of the U.S. Senate to lower the standards of the U.S. military, weakening it and turning it into an institution where his fundamental transformation agenda takes precedence over battle readiness and effectiveness. Unit cohesion is being undermined and destroyed, and the strength of our armed forces is on the wane.
We watched on as Obama handed the Chinese and Russians our response matrices and battle plans under the auspices of “Partnership Readiness and Joint Training Exercises.” This refers specifically to operations with the participation and direction of FEMA with joint drills between U.S. and Chinese forces in Hawaii November 12-14, 2013. These drills were conducted for “disaster management,” specifically for “humanitarian purposes,” and on U.S. soil. One of the administration’s “Yes-men,” American Admiral Sam Locklear stated: “These types of exercises give us a good place to start and to get into the kind of rhythm of understanding and trusting each other.”
This came from the mouth of a U.S. Admiral, the commander of US Pacific Command. It is a shame that he isn’t being quoted right now with the standoff that is currently taking place between China and the U.S. just outside of Chinese territorial waters. What would his opinion be of the new hypersonic missile that China has developed to take out an entire carrier group with just ¼ megaton warhead?
Just this past weekend we witnessed more weakness and obfuscation regarding the missile launched off of the coast of California in the evening of 11/7/15, witnessed by thousands of people. Dave Hodges posted a comment from a gentleman who worked on Trident missiles who believed the launch (by the U.S. Navy) was to gauge response time and effectiveness in dealing with an SLBM (Submarine-Launched Ballistic Missile). Remember, the THAD system has proven itself several times under rigidly controlled conditions in Hawaii to be an abysmal failure regarding missile intercepts.
Matching the level of the (purposeful, administration-designed) U.S. complacency, the Russian military has been matchless in terms of tactical acumen and performance. Vladimir Putin’s brilliance is visible in the Russian offer in the form of a request for the U.S. to join it in the fight against ISIL/ISIS… a war against the very entity created and sponsored by the Obama administration. By not accepting the Russian offer, the U.S. appears not to be helping its “fellow partner and actor” on the world-stage of affairs. If it does accept, then the U.S. fights against its own creation.
The Russians are quietly and patiently on the move. We witnessed the annexation (the conquest) of Ukraine. Now a bitter semi-stalemate exists between ethnic Russian separatists with Ukrainian citizenship and the Ukrainian military, the former also “augmented” with Spetsnaz units. Those selfsame units have rotated into the Syrian theater of operations. We are watching the ongoing actions in Syria with the continuous Russian bombing of ISIS and the gradual movement of ground troops into the country.
Russia has been on the move, now, incrementally and patiently. In December 2013, Russian Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin said that Russia would respond with nuclear weapons. The Yars (SS-29) ICBM has been developed that can penetrate all current U.S. missile defenses. For those who may think this piece to be “slanted” towards current U.S. policy, please think again: The U.S. has been in the process (for decades) of destabilizing former Soviet-bloc, eastern European nations with the infusion of capital from the IMF and with the insertion of American bases, military personnel, and war materials.
The Varshavyanka-class submarines (diesel, improved Kilo-class subs), also known as Project 636, with stealth technology and improved range in combat, are capable of striking targets on the land, under water, and on the surface. A 45-day range without refueling, and an arsenal of 18 torpedoes and 8 SAM’s (surface to air missiles) make these subs very formidable. They also can be fitted with cruise missiles capable of delivering a 250 kiloton warhead. They have been labeled the “black holes” of the ocean by the U.S. navy. One of these bad boys cruising up the Chesapeake Bay and into the Potomac…could pop out a cruise missile and fry DC in under three minutes.
A federal police officer reported on Steve Quayle’s website that Russia has been moving her subs into the Pacific, prepositioning its assets to conduct an attack on the West Coast of the U.S. and/or an EMP-device attack. The U.S. has been pushing things in Syria. Remember on March 24, 2014, that Andrei Kozyrev, former Russian Foreign Minister said that the Ukraine crisis was “in the 11th hour” to avoid a nuclear war. The U.S. was pushing things then in Europe, and this was the reason for the declaration of willingness to use nukes. On March 22, just two days earlier, the U.S. had sent 12 F-16 fighter planes and 300 troops to Poland. The main point is that the U.S. and the NATO countries are now facing nations that are not backing down and if anything are taking a superior position regarding a potential attack posture. With the U.S. economy in a shambles and our military capabilities seriously compromised, the fall is visible on the horizon and steadily approaching. The situation changes on a daily basis, but one can see the two sides are on a collision course, one way or another.

22kth, 2015, Alaska State Judge Anna von Reitz (Anna Maria Riezinger) addressed an open letter to all federal agents, including the FBI and US Marshals to arrest Congress, the President and the Secretary of the Treasury. She goes into incredible detail on the fraud that has been committed. Anyone who reads this is sure to learn at least something. Below is the text and you can open the original pdf here. This has been encouraged to be shared widely.
Anna Maria Riezinger (Anna Von Reitz)
November 28, 2015 Big Lake, Alaska
Dear Federal Agents:
I am addressing this letter in this way, because it is my understanding that it will be read by members of both the FBI and the US Marshals Service. It is also my understanding that you have available for examination a wet-ink signed copy of the illustrated affidavit of probable cause entitled “You Know Something Is Wrong When…..An American Affidavit of Probable Cause” as back-up reference and evidence.
Since the publication of the affidavit a plethora of new supporting documentation and evidence has come to light. We found, for example, that on June 30, 1864, the members of Congress acting as the Board of Directors of a private, mostly foreign-owned corporation doing business as “The United States of America, Incorporated” changed the meaning of “state”, “State” and “United States” to mean “District of Columbia Municipal Corporation”. Like the 1862 change of the meaning of the word “person” to mean “corporation” cited in our affidavit, these special coded meanings of words render a drastically different picture of the world around us.
It turns out that your “personal bank account” is actually a “corporate bank account”. The “Colorado State Court” is actually the “Colorado District of Columbia Municipal Corporation Court”. If you are shocked to learn these facts, you are not alone. So are millions of other Americans. These changes were made 150 years ago and tucked away in reams of boring meeting minutes and legalistic gobbledygook meant to be applied only to the internal workings of a private governmental services corporation and its employees.
There was no public announcement, just as there was no public announcement or explanation when Congress created “municipal citizenship” known as “US citizenship” in 1868. Properly, technically, even to this day, this form of “citizenship” applies only to those born in the District of Columbia, Guam, Puerto Rico, and other Insular States, so there was no real reason to educate the general public about the topic. As Congress was secretively using the labor and the private property assets of these “citizens” as collateral backing the corporate debts of “The United States of America, Inc.” there was plenty of reason to obscure this development.
At the end of the Civil War it would have been very unpopular to reveal that they were simply changing gears from private sector slave ownership to public sector slave ownership. You may be surprised to learn that slavery was not abolished by the Thirteenth or any other Amendment to any constitution then or now. Instead, slavery was redefined as the punishment meted out to criminals. Look it up and read it for yourselves. It remains perfectly legal to enslave criminals, and it was left to Congress to define who the criminals were, because Congress was given plenary power over the District of Columbia and its citizenry by the original Constitution of the Republic and could do whatever it liked within the District and the Washington, DC Municipalities.
A child picking dandelions on the sidewalk could be arbitrarily defined as a criminal and enslaved for life by the renegade Congress functioning as the government of the District of Columbia and as the Board of Directors for the District of Columbia Municipal Corporation, but for starters, Congress simply defined “US citizens” as debt slaves under the 14th Amendment of their corporation’s articles and by-laws—-which they deceptively named the “Constitution of the United States of America”.
The actual Constitution was and still is called “The Constitution for the united States of America”, but most people untrained in the Law and trusting what they believed to be their government didn’t notice the difference between “The Constitution for the united States of America” and the “Constitution of the United States of America”. Are you beginning to see a pattern of deliberate deceit and self-interest and double-speak and double-dealing? And are you also beginning to catch the drift—the motivation—behind it? Let’s discuss the concept of “hypothecation of debt”.
This little gem was developed by the bankers who actually owned and ran the governmental services corporations doing business as “The United States of America, Inc.” and as the “United States, Incorporated”. When you hypothecate debt against someone or against some asset belonging to someone else, you simply claim that they agreed to stand as surety for your debt — similar to cosigning a car loan — and as long as you make your payments, nobody is any the wiser. Normally, it’s not possible for us to just arbitrarily claim that someone is our surety for debt without proof of consent, but that is exactly what Franklin Delano Roosevelt and the Conference of Governors did in March of 1933.
They named all of us and all our property as surety standing good for the debts of their own bankrupt governmental services corporation during bankruptcy reorganization—-and got away with it by claiming that they were our “representatives” and that we had delegated our authority to them to do this “for” us. The exact date and occasion when this happened and where it is recorded, is given in our affidavit. In order to pull this off, however, they had to allege that we were all “US citizens”, and therefore, all subject to the plenary power of Congress acting as an oligarchy ruling over the District of Columbia and the Federal Territories.
They did this by abusing the public trust and creating and registering millions of foreign situs trusts named after each of us. Under their own diversity of citizenship rules, corporations are considered to be “US citizens”. So they created all these foreign situs trusts as franchises of their own bankrupt corporation, used our names styled like this: John Quincy Adams—-and placed commercial liens against our names as chattel owned by their corporation and standing as surety for its debts. A group of thugs elected to political office grossly transgressed against the American people and the American states and committed the crime of personage against each and every one of us without us ever being aware of it.
They couldn’t enslave us, but they could enslave a foreign situs trust named after us— that we conveniently didn’t know existed— and by deliberately confusing this “thing” with us via the misuse of our given names, they could bring charges against what appeared to be us and our private property in their very own corporate tribunals. And so the fleecing of America began in earnest. The hirelings had our credit cards, had stolen our identities, and were ready to begin a crime spree unheralded in human history.
They claimed that we all knew about this arrangement and consented to it, because we “voluntarily” gave up our gold when FDR sent his henchmen around to collect it—-when as millions of Americans can attest, people gave up their gold in preference to being shot or having to kill federal agents. They chose life for everyone concerned over some pieces of metal, and for that, they are to be honored; unfortunately, their decision gave the rats responsible an excuse to claim that Americans wanted to leave the gold standard and wanted the “benefits” of this New Deal in “equitable exchange” for their gold, their identities, the abuse of their good names as bankrupts and debtors, the loss of allodial title to their land and homes, and their subjection as slaves to the whims of Congress.
According to them—that is, those who benefited from this gross betrayal of the public trust— we all voluntarily left the Republic and the guarantees of the actual Constitution behind, willingly subjected ourselves to Congressional rule, donated all our assets including our labor and property to the Public Charitable Trust (set up after the Civil War as a welfare trust for displaced plantation slaves), and agreed to live as slaves owned by the District of Columbia Municipal Corporation in exchange for what? Welfare that we paid for ourselves. Social Security that we paid for ourselves.
The criminality of the “US Congress” and the “Presidents” acting since 1933 is jawdroppingly shocking. Their abuse of the trust of the American people is even worse. They have portrayed this circumstance as a political choice instead of an institutionalized fraud scheme, and they have “presumed” that we all went along with it and agreed to it without complaint. Thus, they have been merrily and secretively having us declared “civilly dead” as American State Citizens the day we are born, and entering a false registration claiming that we are “US Citizens” instead. We are told, when we wake up enough to ask, that we are free to choose our political status.
We don’t have to serve as debt slaves. We can go back and reclaim our guaranteed Republican form of government and our birthright status if we want to—- but that requires a secret process in front of the probate court and expatriation from the Federal United States to the Continental United States and all sorts of voo-doo in backrooms that can only be pursued by the few and the knowledgeable and the blessed. Everyone else has to remain as a debt slave and chattel serving whatever corporation bought the latest version of corporate “persona” named after us.
So let me ask you, as members of the FBI and as US Marshals—- does this sound like something you want to be involved with enforcing on innocent people, or does it sound like something you want to end as expeditiously as possible? The frauds that took root in the wake of the Civil War and which blossomed in the 1930’s have come to their final fruition.
Employees of the “District of Columbia Municipal Corporation” and its United Nations successors are being used as jack-booted thugs to throw Americans into privately owned “federal correctional facilities” when those who need correction—- the members of the American Bar Association and the euphemistically named and privately owned and operated “DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICE”—continue to ignore the fact that Americans DO have a choice and that by the millions we are demanding our freedom from all these pathetic false commercial claims and presumptions.
We are standing up before the whole world and telling these privately owned “governmental services corporations” to go bankrupt like any other corporation that doesn’t do its job and mind its budget. These entities deserve to go bankrupt and worse. They have spent money and credit that was never theirs to spend. They have defrauded millions if not billions of innocent people and they have prevented Americans from claiming their birthrights for far too long.
These people— the members of Congress and the various “Presidents” of the numerous “United States” corporations — have acted as criminals. They deserve to be recognized as such. The members of the American Bar Association have attempted to wash their hands while profiting from the situation and obstructing justice. They stand around shrugging and saying, “Well, it’s a political choice. We don’t have anything to say about that.”—–yet at the same time, they refuse to correct the probate records to reflect our chosen change of political status when we plainly identify ourselves and enunciate our Will for them.
They, too, deserve to be recognized as self-interested criminals and accomplices to identity theft, credit fraud, and worse— which is why we have recently issued a $279 trillion dollar commercial obligation lien against the American Bar Association, the International Bar Association, and the DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICE. All our assets— our bodies, homes, businesses, lands, and labor—have been signed over into the “Public Charitable Trust” by con men merely claiming to represent us. Then, when we object to their lies and entrapment, they use the same fraud against us as their excuse for bringing more false claims against us and throwing us in jail. Enough is enough.
The British Monarch and the Lords of the Admiralty have promoted this fraud against us at the same time they have claimed to be our trustees, allies and friends in perpetuity. It’s time to clear the way for us to politely and peaceably exit from any presumption that we are or ever were “US citizens”, willing participants in the “Public Charitable Trust”, or willing “sureties” for the debts of any private bank-run governmental services corporation merely calling itself the United States of Something or Other.
We repudiate any presumption of private municipal citizenship or obligation to the District of Columbia Municipal Corporation or any successor thereof, and demand an immediate and permanent correction of the civil record to reflect our birthright status as American State Citizens, nunc pro tunc.
As for you, as “Federal Agents”, you have a lot to think about. For starters— who really pays your paycheck? Is it the goons in Washington, DC? Or does it all come from the American people you are supposed to be serving? Do you believe for one moment that anyone just lined up and gave their gold to FDR voluntarily? Do you believe that anyone gave away all their property and the guarantees of the actual Constitution for the “privilege” of paying for Social Security? No? Wake up and smell the java and start doing your real jobs. If anyone complains—arrest him.
We are reopening the American Common Law Courts expressly for the purpose of settling disputes related to living people and their property assets in excess of $20 as mandated by the Seventh Amendment. We, the American people, are the ones holding absolute civil authority upon the land of the Continental United States, and we give you permission to arrest the members of Congress, the President, the Secretary of the Treasury, and any other politician or appointee pretending to speak for us so as to enslave us and bring false claims against us via this institutionalized fraud scheme.
We want it recognized for what it is and dismantled and repudiated tout de suite. Any court that is caught arresting and prosecuting Americans under the presumptions just described to you— such as bringing charges against foreign situs trusts with names styled like this: John Quincy Adams, or Cestui Que Vie trusts styled like this: JOHN QUINCY ADAMS, or Puerto Rican public transmitting utilities styled like this: JOHN Q. ADAMS—-it is your responsibility to make sure that any individuals being addressed by these courts were actually born in the District of Columbia, Guam, Puerto Rico, or one of the other Insular States and that they are not ignorant American State Citizens being falsely registered and railroaded.
Do you understand? Is it now completely clear who the criminals are? Your actual employers and benefactors are being attacked and defrauded by criminals pretending to act as their elected representatives and accomplices in black robes who are serving as enforcers of this fraud for profit. This has been happening right under your noses. This whole circumstance has escaped broad scale public understanding because it was being pursued by private governmental services corporations owned and operated by international banking cartels who claimed that these “private arrangements” were none of the public’s business, despite the grotesque and far-ranging impact these cozy understandings have had upon the people of this and many other countries.
Let it be perfectly clear to you that the business of these private corporations has become our business because they have operated in violation of their charters, in violation of the treaties allowing their existence, and in violation of the National Trust. The American Bar Association and the Internal Revenue Service have both been owned and operated as private foreign bill collectors and trust administrators by Northern Trust, Inc., in violent conflict of interest. They are not professional associations, non-profits, nor units of government. They are con artists and privateers whose licenses expired as of September 1, 2013.
The United States Marshals Service is enabled to act in the capacity of constitutionally – sworn Federal Marshals and we invoke their office and service as such; failure to accept the public office means rejection of all authority related to us. The same may be said of the FBI. Either you do your jobs as constitutionally sworn public officers, or you act as private mall cops in behalf of the offending corporations and under color of law when you pretend to have any public authority or function.
This is the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth.
In a shocking development, the FBI has brought in over 200 vehicles to Burns, Oregon. To those that know their history, it appears that Burns, Oregon will soon become the next Waco. If I had family (i.e. women, children and the elderly), I would have them leave the Burns, Oregon area as there is ready to be a good old fashion military battleground. ……
I forwarded that to Judge Anna hoping she would write something, and this is what she has sent back with instructions to make sure this goes viral and very quickly before these agents get violent.
Notice to Pope Francis, the UN Security Council, Congress, and The World— Round Seven: Karen Hudes/World Bank/IBRD/IMF: There Is No “Interregnum” 23 January 2016
Everyone needs understand that our government is not in any “interregnum” as the result of a governmental services corporation going bankrupt.
That is a problem for the owners and operators of that corporation. It is not a problem for the lawful sovereigns of this country. We are able and willing to appoint new federal entities to act as our agents in the international venue and we have done so.
This is the equivalent of dropping the employment contract of a criminal housekeeper and hiring someone new to do the job. The IMF owned and operated UNITED STATES is insolvent. It presumed upon us, stole our identities, racked up our credit accounts to the moon — and we have repudiated the entire circumstance and the associated odious debts.
Everyone on Earth can plainly see that the sovereignty of this country is fully vested in the unincorporated people and organic states and has never been vested in any incorporated legal fiction entity at all. Ms. Hudes’ presumption that this country is in any kind of “interregnum” is the height of self-interested wishful thinking.
The “federal government” with respect to us is a provider of government services under contract, an association of states that has never been a sovereign government with respect to us or our assets to begin with.
If any form of “United States” is in interregnum, it is the euphemistically named United States of America, Minor—- composed of the seven (7) Insular states and the District of Columbia.
It isn’t the Continental United States and any confusion with us will be summarily dealt with—most likely at the end of a rope for those promoting it.
The sovereignty of our country has always been with the people and the organic states on the land, not with any incorporated vessel in commerce.
Our country has never been bankrupt, hasn’t been at war in 150 years, and we are not obligated to explain our actions or inactions.
Suffice it to say that we have returned home to find that our hired help has acted in Breach of Trust, has misrepresented us and grossly abused our property and good name with criminal intent to defraud us of our inheritance and to institutionalize a multi-generational fraud scheme perpetuated by a joint collusion between the Federal Reserve Banks and the International Monetary Fund/World Bank/IBRD —all of which are in receipt of stolen goods belonging to us and our progeny.
As of the sixth of November 2015 we concluded Treaty negotiations with leaders of two of the largest American Indigenous Nations, the Lakota Sioux and the Athabasca. As a result of our Declaration of Joint Sovereignty all the Native Americans have regained their status as free sovereign people on the land, and as a further result, we have placed our international agency with these nations whose fate and future are allied most closely with our own.
After a National Plebiscite allowing people to express their true political status under conditions of full-disclosure and clearing away five generations-worth of fraud, semantic deceit, and abusive criminality by a succession of bank-run governmental services corporations – we may indeed call for a Continental Congress of the organic states of the Union, in which knowledgeable Fiduciary Deputies acting under full commercial liability take up the issues posed by the present circumstance and 150 years of bad housekeepers and dishonest stable boys.
For now let it be observed by the Holy See and the entire World that the British Monarch has acted in unrepentant Breach of Trust, that Dishonor of our National Trust is entirely the fault of a succession of such Monarchs since 1845, that all debts ever accrued by the organic states of the Union are limited to those services actually received and contracted for under the provisions of the Original Equity Contract known as The Constitution for the united States of America and that all other debts are not and never were our responsibility.
Let it also stand that as a result of this fundamental Breach of Trust by the British Monarchs we have been mischaracterized and defrauded and press-ganged and subjected to enslavement and peonage, that false titles have been imposed upon our assets and many false and infamous claims have been made against us and our property. We have also been misrepresented as criminals and war-mongers and immoral libertines to the rest of the world.
All this has happened despite British assurances of perpetual friendship and amity, despite the many signatures and seals of British Monarchs and British Crown officials on Treaties, United Nations Declarations, Geneva and Hague Conventions, Trade Agreements, Pacts, and Alliances. These perpetrators of fraud and criminality have betrayed and enslaved their own people since the 1867 Enfranchisement Act. They have betrayed their Allies in both War and Peace.
The IMF-run governmental services corporation in America has amassed a huge commercial mercenary army on our shores, disguised as government agencies –BATF, FEMA, DHS, IRS, FBI, CIA, and so on– when in fact these are all nothing but private, for-profit corporations lacking any public office or authority at all. These are bands of armed thugs who are being instructed to bully and rob us by criminals pretending to hold public offices and by bankers who are running governmental services corporations “as if” they were actual governments.
Imagine that you pay ABC Housekeeping Services, Inc. to do your laundry, vacuum your carpet, clean the kitchen, empty the trash, and scrub down the bathroom once a week. They subcontract the work out and hire DEF, Inc. to do the laundry; GHI, Inc. to do the vacuuming and so on.
Then imagine that ABC Housekeeping Services, Inc. directs all these subcontractors to boot up, ambush you, rob you, beat you, and bring false charges against you—and also pretends that you asked for this “service”.
That’s what we have going on in America and we have reason to believe the same thing is going on all over the world.
We would like to ask Pope Francis how much longer he expects people to put up with this before they take massive violent direct action against the clergy, the bankers, the lawyers, and the politicians responsible for this? We’ve seen the French Revolution. We’ve seen the Russian Revolution. We’ve seen the Chinese Revolution. We’ve seen two World Wars and countless police actions, and at the end of the day—- it is all because of this hideous fraud.
This Babylonian Slave System has been instituted to the tune of Yankee Doodle Dandy and Rule Britannia and the Marseilles— and all these evils perpetuated from 1845 until now have been finessed by the British Government despite the fact that slavery has been outlawed worldwide since 1926 and despite the fact that war has been outlawed since the Kellogg-Briand Pact of 1928. They just call it by a different name, put on a new uniform, create a new office for themselves and pretend that it’s all right.
All the purloined and borrowed assets owed to the American people and the organic states of the Union must be returned to us, the lawful Entitlement Holders, First Copyright Holders, Heirs, and Beneficiaries and released to our control, free and clear, with interest— with no further obfuscation or delay. That is our counter-offer to Ms. Hudes and the banks she works for.
Any Waco-style attacks against Americans will be instantly recognized as criminal acts by those corporations and corporate officers responsible. Not only the immediate field staff but the entirety of the corporate chain of command will be held individually and commercially 100% liable. Those responsible for any such acts will be prosecuted to the full extent of the Public Law, up to and including Public Execution. Their corporations will also incur an immediate and published lien of two (2) billion ounces of fine silver per American murdered by any “federal” employee or agent — one billion to be paid to actual government of this country and one billion to be paid to the victim’s family, plus any Bounty Hunter fees, court fees, or other expenses.
We will happily bankrupt every corporation and liquidate every agency that promotes violence or criminality of any kind. We will happily prosecute every banker, every attorney, and every politician responsible. We do not recognize this as any kind of “war” but merely high level garden variety crime that has not been recognized for what it is and properly addressed.
We presented our complaints to Pope Benedict XVI in 2008 in his Extraordinary and Secular Role as Trustee of the Global Estate. We have continued to press for a peaceful settlement in which the American assets are returned to the American people and their organic states for the past eight years. This is not rocket science and we have not hindered any reasonable solution or refused any equitable settlement.
We have appointed Athabasca Chief Michael Young to act as our Agent and have appointed General Joseph F. Dunford, Jr. in his capacity as a Commanding General of the American Armed Forces to act as our Fiduciary Deputy to collect our gold and all other material assets which were illegally confiscated, mortgaged, and otherwise improperly entangled in the bankruptcy of the United States of America, Inc. by the Franklin Delano Roosevelt Administration and which have been received as stolen goods by the Global Debt Facility, World Bank, IBRD, IMF, FEDERAL RESERVE, BIS, etc.
The banks and trustees responsible have been notified and there is no excuse for continued attempts to avoid the truth and misrepresent the circumstance. We remark with Mark Twain that rumors of our death have been greatly exaggerated. The lawful unincorporated government of this country is alive and well; the free, sovereign and independent people of the United States are here to rebut any claim that our sovereignty has faltered much less entered any interregnum.
As we have repudiated the odious debts compiled by the IMF dba UNITED STATES and refused any claim by the World Bank to act as Successor to Contract it should also be clear that we do not recognize any actions by Barack Hussein Obama creating bankrupt Puerto Rican public transmitting utilities named after us or any other American living or dead and styled like this: JACOB J. LEW.
We do not recognize any franchises created by False Usufructs in our names and employed by the same False Usufructs under conditions of fraud and deceit to enrich themselves and the corporations they have employed as a means of theft and violence. Any and all such legal “persons” and all debts or charges associated with them are the responsibility of the corporations that created them and nobody else on Earth—least of all the victims whose names have been seized upon and copyrighted by criminals.
Since 1860 a succession of imposters have presented themselves as public office holders while in fact occupying similarly-named private corporate offices instead. This fraud and deceit has allowed them to abuse what appears to be public office for private gain and to coercively and abusively impose upon the people of the United States.
The American Bar Association and the Internal Revenue Service have both been owned and operated under false pretenses and clandestine fraud by Northern Trust, Inc. and have functioned as Undeclared Foreign Agents on our soil for decades. They have been employed to act as private bill collectors and privateers while posing as lawful judicial officers and employees of our government while in fact being employed by bank-run governmental services corporations and used to promote racketeering and armed extortion under Color of Law.
Fraud begun during the Administration of Abraham Lincoln has led to 150 years of war, misery, and enslavement of hundreds of millions of innocent people worldwide— the American people among them. Deluded victims of misplaced confidence we supported the perpetrators of these crimes and acted as their unwitting accomplices.
May Our Father in Heaven and all the people we have harmed forgive us as we deal with this outrageous criminality in our midst.
Judge Anna Maria Riezinger _____
Translation of Karen Hudes’ Correspondence to Members of the “Development Committee” dated December 28, 2015
Concerning the Global Currency Reset from the assets in the Global Debt Facility, as described inhttps://s3.amazonaws.com/khudes/Twitter18.104.22.168.pdf
Karen Hudes: This is a draft of the fifth and eighth action items in the Letter of Intent. It was agreed with twenty delegations during the Annual Meetings in Lima, and subsequently cleared by email with the New York Missions and Tokyo Embassies, that any country which disagreed with my proposals would go on record in writing. The purpose of these measures is to frustrate the efforts of the Network of Global Corporate Control identified by Vitali, Glattfelder, and Battiston of ETH Zurich to bring on another Dark Ages through quantitative easing.
Anna’s Translation: We got the boys together and figured out that quantitative easing would bring on the Mother of All Depressions and because of our unlucky Derivatives positions and other misdeeds, we would not be able to benefit from that. So we have to find some way to steal the assets owed to the Americans, use their assets to pay our debts, claim that their government is in “interregnum” because our own governmental services corporation went bankrupt, and use the American’s own assets to reboot another round of fraud and plunder against them.
Karen Hudes: Successive measures in the Global Currency Reset will be agreed transparently and peacefully in due course. In addition to discussions in the Development Committee, the United States will join the Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank, and a means of converting the excess liquidity of Federal Reserve Notes that were acquired through economic transactions (and not through black operations) will include allocating shares of the publicly traded companies that are in receivership in the Global Debt Facility.
Anna’s Translation: The “United States” being referred to is the UNITED STATES, INC., an insolvent governmental services corporation operated by the IMF. This corporation — once it is purchased by the World Bank using American credit and assets— will sop up all the “Federal Reserve Notes” issued after the Federal Reserve System was already bankrupted. And on top of using our assets to do this after we, the Heirs, have specifically told them NO, they propose to seize upon American corporations—like the bogus public transmitting utilities recently created by Obama “in our names”— that have been improperly included in the bankruptcy of the UNITED STATES to siphon off more profit for the perpetrators
Karen Hudes: The Global Currency Reset is not deflating or contracting the amount of currency required for economic activities; Federal Reserve Notes will continue to circulate alongside Treasury Dollars and local currencies; excess Federal Reserve Notes will be retired in due course. Legal tender laws are no longer in effect; parties will decide which currency to use.
Anna’s Translation: The perpetrators will buy back their pal’s I.O.U.s called “Federal Reserve Notes” and issue new I.O.U.’s called “United States Dollars” printed up by the so-called “Global Debt Facility” all based on our credit and assets— not their own—and continue to bill us and blame us for this criminal chicanery and abuse.
Karen Hudes: The initial procedure for exchanging Federal Reserve Notes for uncut United States Dollars held in the Global Debt Facility will be as follows: residents of the United States will mail a notice to the Development Committee on a form to be published, the amount of Federal Reserve Notes that they propose to exchange (up to $1 million per resident), and the address to which the Development Committee’s certification for the exchange is to be mailed. In order to exchange Federal Reserve Notes for Treasury Dollars, certification will be required.
Anna’s Translation: Government insiders and Federal United States Citizens (Congressmen, etc.) who stand to get burned by all this can write a note to the Development Committee and exchange their utterly worthless “Federal Reserve Notes” in quantities of up to a million digits for the new worthless I.O.U.’s, provided they ask nicely and get permission—a “certification”—look up the legal meaning of “certification”, folks— from the “Development Committee”.
Karen Hudes: Although initially demand deposits, savings deposits, money market mutual funds and other time deposits can include Federal Reserve Notes, eventually these will have to be disaggregated since only Treasury Dollars will be eligible for exchange into aurum. The design and denominations of the aurum will be determined by the US Mint pursuant to the Monetary Agreement that will be entered into in due course.
Anna’s Translation: only those people who get permission from the “Development Committee” to exchange their Federal Reserve Note I.O.U’s will be able to get the new “Treasury Dollar” I.O.U’s and then be able to convert those into “aurum”— gold or gold-backed certificates. All the “little people” will be out of luck, forced to deal in more “federal funny money” and have to pay for all this fraud as a result. Same scam, different day, new names for the same old crappola.
Karen Hudes: Because of the corruption in the international financial system arising from the Network of Global Corporate Control, additional certifications for the exchange of Federal Reserve Notes will need to be determined after the United States has ended its interregnum pursuant to Article V of the Constitution of 1789. The amount of United States currency will be equivalent to its gross national product, and will also include local currencies in the villages, towns, and other local areas.
Anna’s Translation: Because they all got caught making nasty they have to come up with something to blame so Karen hit upon the “Network of Global Corporate Control” as a name for the scapegoat Bogey Man. Nobody will notice that they are the Bogey Man if they point fingers at another Bogey Man, right? So after they have pretended that the American Government has collapsed along with their criminally mis-managed governmental services corporation and that the sovereign people of the United States all just “disappeared” and/or “volunteered” to act as slaves for them, they will try to hold a bogus “Continental Congress” and pass it off as the real thing, just as they have pretended to hold public offices. Using incorporated entities to merely “represent” the people they propose to re-instate their corporation as the de facto government, and then say that they will issue I.O.U.’s equal to a year’s worth of the GNP to float enough fake “money” to keep things moving.
These infamous scoundrels have claimed that we, the people, are “dead” because their nasty, criminal, incompetent, coercive “governmental services corporation” went insolvent and now the parent corporation of all this evil—- the UN Corporation, the IMF, and the UNITED STATES, INC. are having to come in and buy up the debts and spin off a new round of the same old fraud and they are proposing to keep our assets and use our credit to do all this in our names.
FINAL TRANSLATION: Karen Hudes is trying to steal your country. She proposes to use your own assets and credit to pay for bailing out her Bosses and the rats at the Federal Reserve who colluded with them to steal you blind ever since 1913. She is pretending — in her own self-interest – that the lawful government of this country is gone and lacking sovereignty because an IMF-owned governmental services corporation doing business as the UNITED STATES is insolvent or because the so-called “United States of America, Minor” is bankrupt, either.
Just more Shinola, in other words. More attempts to confuse us with them.
The actual sovereignty of our country resides in the unincorporated organic states and the people as it always has and never had anything to do with those merely “representing” us. Now that we have stood up and are presenting ourselves, Ms. Hudes and her ilk must stand down and admit that we are still very much alive and that we have named other Parties to represent us in the international venue and have refused Jacob Rothschild’s offer to buy out the bankrupt UNITED STATES and run it as a Successor to Contract to initiate another round of the same old fraud.
The banks now owe us—the American People— the return of all our assets as we have detailed in our Sixth Round Reply to Ms. Hudes— free and clear, with interest. No liens, no debts, no attachments, no retention of claims upon us or our lands, nor our resources, homes, copyrights, businesses, livestock, or anything else. These banks either pay up peacefully or reveal to the whole world that they are nothing but crime syndicates subject to immediate liquidation.
By now, many of you know I am just a very pissed off, grumpy, foul mouthed, un-educated, seventy five year old man who could not rest until I found out why America is such a shit hole of crooked, authoritarian politicians, when all we were ever taught growing up was How Wonderful America is.
As if that was not enough, it really gripes my ass that all the people who are much better educated don’t have a damned clue what was done to all of us, and most of them don’t even seem to recognize anything is wrong.
They are so engrossed in their struggle to be happy and care-free; they can’t smell the stench of corruption that is suffocating all of us.
NOW, THERE ARE NO MORE EXCUSES FOR THEIR COMPLACENCY!
All they have to do is sit on their ass and do a little reading, and learn how they and I ate the biggest worm ever to exist, And smacked our stupid lips.
You are about to learn how millions of intelligent people who are much better educated than I wound up being slaves without ever knowing something was wrong, and more importantly what we all can do to straighten out this cluster fuck we call AMERICA, and actually become the darlings of humanity we thought we were.
First, you must understand that most of those who misinformed us were just as fooled as we are, and if they are still alive it’s a good idea to help them understand the great lie they taught was all part of the program to gain absolute control of every dollar they possibly could. Including theirs!
After just two hours of undisturbed reading you are going to be a new person, and will no longer be willing to waste your life watching football or dancing with the stars, when all you have to do in order to change history is educate as many people as you possibly can, and I will show you an easy way to do that, because all of us are going to suffer unimaginably if we don’t work together and piss off a hundred million people real quick. And I do mean quick, because we are about to go belly up and drown in our own vomit of fear and tragedy, and the only way out is to have millions of people ready to die for their god given rights to be returned. You can learn until hell freezes over, but gain nothing without sharing what you have learned.
READ THIS FIRST BUT DON’T STOP UNTIL YOU HAVE READ IT ALL.

Please note that there are four states technically organized as Commonwealths— Pennsylvania, Kentucky, Virginia, and Massachusetts. They have to operate their land jurisdiction courts under the correct name, as in, Pennsylvania Commonwealth Superior Court. This especially needs to be put under the noses of everyone involved in the Bundy Ranch scenario.
Rest assured that we are moving forward and that all this crappola is coming home to roost in international and military venues as we speak. The rats in Washington have 177 nations arrayed against what they have done, plus the people of the Continental United States.
The only way that they can hope to survive is by placating the civilian populace and earning back our trust by deeds commensurate. This “fills out” the picture in back of the Timeline and Public Order. I hope that some of you who have felt alarmed by the severity of my action in correction will now fully grasp the circumstance and the fact that we are in the driver’s seat, responsible for defending our own prerogatives and operating the land jurisdiction of the Continental United States. In acting as a Judge of the Alaska State Superior Court I have operated the Court for the benefit of the land and the people. I have this capacity, as does anyone who is competent to read and understand the Public Law and Constitution, and who is NOT a member of the Bar Association. The reasons will be made more explicit in the attached Notice.
Issued to Law Enforcement,
Elected Officials, etc.
Take Notice: The Roman Curia created the concept of legal fictions– trusts, foundations, and other corporations for good reasons– however, legal fictions can be misused. By Maxim of Law, those who create are responsible for their creations. It follows that the Roman Curia is responsible for the proper functioning of all corporations worldwide. As of September 1, 2013, Pope Francis declared all corporations and corporate officers fully liable for their errors and omissions.
This means you.
Also by Maxim of Law, there is no statute of limitation on fraud. Privately owned governmental services corporations have been fraudulently passing themselves off as the “government of the United States” since 1862. The longevity of this fraud in no way imbues it with authority. As an employee of these corporations you have no public office and no public bond and no foreign state immunity.
Federal Law Enforcement Personnel— except U.S. Marshals: Your status is that of a Mall Cop acting outside the Mall. You have no authority on the land jurisdiction of the Continental United States. You are acting under color of law when addressing Citizens of the Continental United States “as if” they were Citizens of the Federal United States. If you threaten any living inhabitant of the Continental United States with a gun, taser or other weapon, you can be hung as an inland pirate. If you remove any livestock you can be hung as a cattle rustler
If you cause any harm, you can be sued without limit. If you wear any uniform or display any badge or use any name or office designed to deceive or project authority you do not have, you can be arrested for impersonating an officer.
You are acting in a purely private capacity and have only equal Civil Rights that may be withdrawn at any time. You are also acting under Martial Law and may face extreme punishment for infractions against the civilian populace. Acts of plunder, mortal violence, and mis-characterization of civilians as combatants are all death penalty offenses.
U.S. Marshals are allowed full egress within the Continental United States so long as they are sworn and acting as officers sworn to uphold the actual Constitution, are not acting deceptively nor acting outside their international jurisdiction while in pursuit of their duty protecting the U.S. Mail.
Lawyers, Judges, Court Clerks— When you address birthright Citizens of the Continental United States in the foreign jurisdiction of the Federal United States or that of a Federal State, and deliberately confuse living people with corporate franchises merely named after them, you commit personage.
This results in press-ganging land assets into the international jurisdiction of the sea, a crime outlawed worldwide for 200 years. It is a recognized act of inland piracy and it carries the death penalty.
Mis-characterizing the identity or citizenship status of a birthright Citizen of the Continental United States is also a crime under the Geneva Protocols of 1949, Volume II, Article 3. It also carries the Death Penalty.
Finally, no member of the Bar Association may sit upon the bench of any public court nor occupy any public office of the Continental United States including Congress. The involvement of any Bar Member automatically voids all proceedings pretending subject matter jurisdiction related to the actual land or its assets—including the people of the Continental United States. The Titles of Nobility Amendment adopted and ratified prior to the American Civil War has not been repealed.
The Federal United States and the Municipality of Washington, DC all operate under the auspices of the United Nations and are signatories of the Universal Right of Self-Declaration.
Anyone claiming to be a Citizen of the Continental United States having a valid Birth Certificate must be treated as such.
Any debts or charges whatsoever related to vessels in commerce operated under his or her name by the Federal United States, any Federal State, the Washington DC Municipality or the UNITED NATIONS must be discharged according to Maxim of Law already cited: you are responsible for what you create.
The Federal United States and its Federal States have created numerous vessels in commerce merely named after living Citizens of the Continental United States and styled in the form: John Quincy Adams. The Washington DC Municipality has similarly indulged in this practice and created franchises for itself named after living Citizens of the Continental United States styled in the form: JOHN QUINCY ADAMS. Most recently the UNITED NATIONS has created public utilities and is operating them under names styled as: JOHN Q. ADAMS.
The organizations that have created these franchises are completely, 100% liable for their debts and obligations without exception and without recourse to claim upon the living people these franchises are named after.
You may not presume that the living people have consensually agreed to be subjected to statutory law.
You may not presume that they consensually agreed to be obligated for the debts of any legal fiction personas which have been created and named after them by Third Parties secretively operating in a private capacity and merely claiming to represent the victims of this fraud.
This is your Due Notice that the living people inhabiting the Continental United States are presenting themselves and may not be addressed as if they belong to, are responsible foror indebted in behalf of any legal fiction personas operated under their given names by any international corporation.
Any continuance of any such claims and repugnant practices will be deemed immediate cause to liquidate the American Bar Association as a criminal syndicate and to deport its members from our shores. International action is underway to secure the assets and credit owed to the victims.
Please read, research, and do your own due diligence. You are fully responsible for obeying the Public Law of the Continental United States including Revised Statute 2561 and The Constitution.
Please respect the established jurisdictions of air, land, and sea— and be aware that you may be arrested and fined or worse for failure to do so.
Issued this fifth day of April 2015, Judge Anna Maria Riezinger, Alaska State Superior Court
Cover Lettter From: Judge Anna von Reitz, Alaska
I have confirmed some very important information this past week and taken action as a result.
Please find enclosed a six page summary of the situation we are in and how we got here. If you can’t read six pages of actual documented -not-my-opinion-history to save your country, then we are all about to be blown to hell.
And we will deserve it, for being so incredibly clueless, lazy, and stupid. We are in control of the public jurisdiction of the Continental United States. Attached as part of the history is a Declaration of Law that is executable as a Court Order by anyone who (1) understands the content of the document, (2) was born on the land of one of the fifty Continental States, (3) is NOT a member of the Bar Association.
Follow the instructions— use red ink to designate that it is being exercised on the land jurisdiction and in behalf of the State Superior Court as in “landed (E)state”.
Put away your sabers and get out your red ink pens and you U.S. Mail Certified receipts, Return Receipt Requested—– and do what Thomas Jefferson said we must—chain them down with the Constitution—- the actual Constitution, in action.
Stop worrying about imagined enemies. The only enemies out there are on our payroll, trying to scam up another war-for-profit. Don’t be stupid and allow the cretins to start one here!!! Keep the peace, guard your words, and DO NOT CONTRIBUTE ONE SYLLABLE of nonsense such as is being expressed in so many quarters.
Understand that war is what these corporations are good at. That and lying are their stock in trade. We have hired them to protect us. They would like nothing better than to “protect us against ourselves” —- use our own unrest as an excuse for killing us, and then send the bill to our families.
They could do a tremendous amount of damage and cost millions of American lives and PROFIT from doing it, but they can NEVER win in international court and they can never win any kind of moral victory.
So hold their feet to the fire using your brains instead of your brawn, all you Bubbas out there.
That is what is required now. If you really want to help — read, sign, and send the attachment to all those who need to see it.
NEWS FROM OLDDOG We are presently having about one inch per hour of snow accumulation here in the NC Mountains, so don’t be surprised if we are off line for a while. The weather goons are predicting eighteen inches here, and the trees will soon be falling. Have a good day!
If you don’t conform to the crowd now, you’re a ‘radical’
That’s me in the middle!

In 2014, the Journal of Neuroscience published the results of a unique study that probed deep into human emotion.
Two Dutch scientists had conducted an experiment in which they exposed test subjects to a wide range of scenarios to evoke some of the most primal human emotions– joy, anger, etc.
Subjects were hooked up to an electro-encephalogram (EEG) in order to quantitatively measure their brains’ cognitive response to powerful emotions.
And the results were pretty conclusive: the most powerful emotional experience, as measured by the sheer volume of human brain activity and neurological reaction, was humiliation.
This really explains a lot when you think about it.
Deep down we human beings are social creatures. We seek acceptance from the group.
It’s why conformity is so much easier than standing apart from the crowd, even when the crowd makes absolutely no sense.
And those who don’t conform and think independently are labeled radicals.
Our financial system is a great example of this.
They’ve spiked the punch bowl with so many lies. Home prices always go up. The debt doesn’t matter because we owe it to ourselves. We can always print more money.
None of this nonsense is true. But the financial establishment tells us so. Big media repeats it over and over again. Eventually hundreds of millions of people believe it.
And anyone who dares question the sanctity of this system is labeled a radical.
(This goes for just about everything now. Eerily, governments are now branding people who disagree with the state as radicals.)
This is total BS.
You’re not a radical because the federal government’s own balance sheet shows that they are hopelessly insolvent to the tune of negative $17.7 trillion.
You’re not a radical because the US Federal Reserve’s balance sheet shows that, on a mark to market basis, they too are insolvent.
You’re not a radical because the balance sheet of the FDIC shows that they don’t maintain the minimum amount of capital as required by law to adequately insure the banking system.
You’re not a radical because the financial statements of some of the largest banks in the country show that they only keep a tiny percentage of your savings on reserve, and park the rest of your money in some foolish investment fad, or loan it to a bankrupt government.
You’re not a radical because the annual reports of the largest trust funds in the US retirement system show that they are either pitifully underfunded, or entirely out of cash.
You’re not a radical because you think that, maybe just maybe, there might be negative consequences at some point down the road from all of this insanity…
… that, maybe just maybe, when nearly every major component of the financial system is either highly illiquid or completely insolvent, that there could possibly be trouble down the road.
Most of all, you’re not a radical because you have a Plan B.
It hardly seems outlandish to look at objective, publicly available data and think “wow, this entire banking system is built on a house of cards…” and then to actually do something about it.
There are so many options.
You might look abroad to hold a portion of your savings where the banks are extremely liquid and well capitalized, located in a jurisdiction with minimal debt.
Or you might simply consider holding some physical cash, or a mix between physical cash and precious metals.
These aren’t radical ideas. It’s sensible to take astute, rational steps to protect yourself from the consequences of such obvious risks.
Have a nice weekend,

What good thing can be said for a nation so stupid they continue supporting the very system that is destroying them? Talk about humiliation! Just wait till the shit really hits the fan in America. Most of the city folks are already incapable of wiping their ass, and soon they will be steeling your eye glasses to barter with, and, or your shoes and socks. If you’re not capable and ready to blow their head off, they will sooner or later become cannibals’ and eat you alive. GOOD LUCK SUCKERS!
It seems everywhere we look that the Second Amendment is under attack. Just last month the New Jersey Assembly Law & Public Safety Committee was considering legislation that would ban ammunition under the auspices of protecting police. Now it would appear from a brief reading of the proposal that the ammunition spoken of would be “armor piercing ammunition”, but the language also encompasses any ammo that is deemed to “pose a threat to the safety and well being of law enforcement.” Can anyone say “all” ammunition?
Let’s keep in mind that most law enforcement wear Level II-A protective vests that stop 9mm and .40 bullets. So that means that if strictly taken for armor piercing all other ammunition would be banned. This means you would be unable to get ammo for your AR-15, many hunting rifles and even some handguns, such as your trusty .45.
We are not even talking just common bullets. In addition, Ammoland.com states, “Common hunting, target, and self-defense ammunition would be subject to ban, along with BB’s, airgun pellets, and non-metallic ammunition like plastic airsoft pellets, if the Attorney General decides that they pose a threat to the safety and well being of law enforcement. “ The NRA also agrees with Ammoland’s assessment stating,
“Although the bill only mentions handgun ammunition, it is in fact not limited to handgun ammunition, and would apply to all rifle ammunition for which a handgun is ever made. As an increasing number of gun manufacturers make handgun models that shoot rifle caliber ammunition, the line between “handgun” vs. “rifle” ammunition has become blurred, and the New Jersey State Police have already begun treating rifle ammunition in this category as if it were handgun ammunition for regulatory purposes. As long as a handgun exists that shoots a particular caliber of rifle ammunition, New Jersey treats that ammunition as if it were handgun ammunition. “
The bills (Assembly Bill A588 & A1013) went even further and stated, “This bill makes using a defaced or stolen firearm in causing serious bodily injury or bodily injury to a law enforcement officer a crime.” So if you purchased a firearm from someone, paid a price and had a bill of sale (and the firearm was either stolen or had the serial number removed) and cops broke down your door and you defended yourself with the weapon and injured or killed the officer, you could be charged with a crime! It is outrageous that these law makers do not respect their constituents enough to come head on after the guns people use. They have to manipulate and blow things out of proportion in order to get their agendas accomplished. However, in this instance they are doing a sneak attack and basically saying, “It’s OK for you to have weapons, you just can’t have ammunition.” I have to say this is a brilliant strategy but that is not to pat them on the back. I’m betting that most people see this and know they better obtain their ammo now, because once the ban is passed, it won’t be available in Jersey. In fact, if you are caught with it, it will probably be grounds for fines and jail time.
No doubt everyone has heard of the cries last year demanding federal legislation to ban high capacity ammunition clips after congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords was shot.
Our own President is even undertaking efforts for more gun legislation, albeit “under the radar”, which many commentators connected to the Fast & Furious scandal. On top of that the New UN Small Arms Treaty is an international agreement which is seeking to disarm Americans. Some say it is an end around the 2nd Amendment. Others say no the Constitution would prevail over it. Let’s always keep at the forefront of our minds that the UN does not have our best interest at heart. Sadly, neither does the current occupant of the White House. This treaty would be up for ratification this year by the Senate.
How is it possible that a nation founded upon Christian principles and values, one which had become the greatest and most successful experiment in government this world has ever known, could become such a willing participant in forsaking everything that made it great? What made it possible for that nation to deny, not only the American way of life, but to deny Christianity and Jesus Christ Himself? Although this did not happen overnight, there was only one way the forces of evil could have gained the foothold necessary to convert America into a Satanic State. As suggested in the book of The Revelation, there would have to be a catalyst in the form of some “authority figure” to bring all of the pieces together. That catalyst was found and put into place as a result of the election of 2008, in the person of Barack Hussein Obama.
Obama immediately went to work persuading his mesmerized flock of weak-minded individuals that there was more to life than what they had been taught. For those who loosely held onto the basic truth of Christianity, that one’s salvation and eternity in heaven could only be achieved by repenting of their sins and receiving Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior, Obama quickly put them at ease by declaring that now there were several ways to make it into heaven, and these obedient and robotic minions were not about to question an official proclamation of their self-anointed “Messiah”!
Obama convinced them that there would be no need for them to die to make it into heaven, because he would create their heaven right here on Earth! If they didn’t want to work, all they had to do was sign up for perpetual unemployment benefits. And if that wasn’t enough, Obama would give them “free” health care, free cell phones, free education, free mortgages (which they couldn’t afford), food stamps, rent subsidies and even jobs for those who had not yet figured out that there was no longer any need to work for a living.
Wow, Utopia was here at last! Was Obama good, or what! He proclaimed that any government worth its salt would provide for a “cradle to the grave” existence for each and every one of the parasitical masses. Now it just couldn’t get any better than that! Obama knew that once this “free ride” mentality had been accepted, the rest would be easy. And for those who couldn’t be convinced through trickery and deceit, there was always the presumed guilt over slavery that would tie the hands and silence the voice of common sense and reason among those who had allowed this guilt to consume their every thought.
Under Obama, there would be no rules, except those, which he would create through his legislative procedure of choice, the Executive Order. He did make it very clear however, that in order for people to continue to enjoy this free and easy lifestyle, they must keep re-electing his disciples to office, those who would continue to provide this “free ride” existence. But then, who in their right mind would not vote for those people.
Responsibility and common sense were abandoned! Abortion would no longer be considered murder, but just another method of birth control. Same-sex marriage was no longer an immoral lifestyle and an abomination to God, but simply one’s right to co-habitat with whomever or whatever they choose.
Rules and responsibility were only for those who didn’t know how to enjoy the good life, and from now on, Christianity, the Constitution, ambition and all other obsolete principles and values relied upon to establish that old American nation would become but a distant reminder of an old-fashioned and square way of life. Once Obama had rid the military leadership of those who might challenge his new world order form of government, and personal weapons had been removed from the hands of those who erroneously believed in a citizen’s right to keep and bear arms, the
“Obumanization” of America would then be complete.
From being the nation that the rest of this misguided and crazy world once depended upon to bring some sense of civility to life itself, we have become a disgrace to our ancestors and the laughing stock of a world gone totally mad. Congratulations Barack: Mission accomplished!
In spite of his excellent blast of Obuma, Mr. Hubbard is still pouring out the same surreptitious garbage that makes uninformed people think that the election process really works. Heads up folks, the election process is the number one tool of the PTB to keep you ignorant of who runs the government. His denigration of the liberal parasites is a set up to get your sympathetic support. The entire Federal Government and all who work for it are either fools or covert back stabbers. Do not participate in the system that enslaves us. Demand the installment of Citizen Grand Juries and appoint Common Law Judges. We can rebuild America around the original Constitution with Common Law by the people and for the people. The existing political system is for Corporations.
by LAWRENCE SELLIN, PHD This article is a statement of the facts, taken from the Constitution, the Fourteenth Amendment and several Supreme Court decisions and is not meant to, or intended to, be interpreted as a political endorsement, or lack thereof, of any political candidate. Family Security Matters takes no political point of view whatsoever and discusses only matters of major import to the security and defense of the United States.
Article 1 Section 8 of the Constitution states that Congress shall have the power to establish a uniform rule of naturalization. Section 1 of the Fourteenth Amendment to the Constitution states: “All persons born or naturalized in the United States and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside.”
First of all, Ted Cruz was born in Canada and not subject to the jurisdiction of the United States. Furthermore, the manner in which Ted Cruz acquired US citizenship bears comparison to the Supreme Court case, Rogers v. Belle (1971). Aldo Mario Bellei was born in Italy of an Italian father and a US citizen mother.
According to Rogers v. Belle (1971), inserting “Cruz” within the text of the majority opinion: “He [Cruz] was not born in the United States. He [Cruz] was not naturalized in the United States. And he [Cruz] has not been subject to the jurisdiction of the United States. All this being so, it seems indisputable that the first sentence of the Fourteenth Amendment has no application to plaintiff Bellei [Cruz]. He [Cruz] simply is not a “Fourteenth Amendment first sentence” citizen. Even in the dissenting opinion of Rogers v. Belle (1971), Justices Brennan and Douglas acknowledge: “Concededly, petitioner [Cruz] was a citizen at birth (emphasis added), not by constitutional right, but only through operation of a federal statute.”
According to United States v. Wong Kim Ark (1898):
“But it [the first sentence of the Fourteenth Amendment] has not touched the acquisition of citizenship by being born abroad of American parents; and has left that subject to be regulated, as it had always been, by Congress, in the exercise of the power conferred by the Constitution to establish an uniform rule of naturalization.”
Again, Rogers v. Belle (1971), referring to United States v. Wong Kim Ark (1898):
“Thus, at long last, there emerged an express constitutional definition of citizenship. But it was one restricted to the combination of three factors, each and all significant: birth in the United States, naturalization in the United States, and subjection to the jurisdiction of the United States. The definition obviously did not apply to any acquisition of citizenship by being born abroad of an American parent. That type, and any other not covered by the Fourteenth Amendment, was necessarily left to proper congressional action.” Further clarifying (emphasis added) the distinction of citizen by birth and naturalization, even at birth by Act of Congress, Rogers v. Bellei (1971) states:
“However, the clearest expression of the idea that Bellei and others [Cruz] similarly situated should for constitutional purposes be considered as naturalized citizens is to be found in United States v. Wong Kim Ark, 169 U. S. 649 (1898): ‘The Fourteenth Amendment of the Constitution . . . contemplates two sources of citizenship, and two only: birth and naturalization. Citizenship by naturalization can only be acquired by naturalization under the authority and in the forms of law. But citizenship by birth is established by the mere fact of birth under the circumstances defined in the Constitution. Every person born in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof becomes at once a citizen of the United States, and needs no naturalization. A person born out of the jurisdiction of the United States can only become a citizen by being naturalized, either by treaty, as in the case of the annexation of foreign territory; or by authority of Congress, exercised either by declaring certain classes of persons to be citizens, as in the enactments conferring citizenship upon foreign-born children of citizens, or by enabling foreigners individually to become citizens by proceedings in the judicial tribunals, as in the ordinary provisions of the naturalization acts.’
‘The Court in Wong Kim Ark thus stated a broad and comprehensive definition of naturalization. As shown in Wong Kim Ark, naturalization, when used in its constitutional sense, is a generic term describing and including within its meaning all those modes of acquiring American citizenship other than birth in this country. All means of obtaining American citizenship which are dependent upon a congressional enactment are forms of naturalization. This inclusive definition has been adopted in several opinions of this Court besides United States v. Wong Kim Ark, supra. Thus, in Minor v. Happersett, 21 Wall. 162, 88 U. S. 167 (1875), the Court said:’
‘Additions might always be made to the citizenship of the United States in two ways: first, by birth, and second, by naturalization. . . . [N]ew citizens may be born, or they may be created by naturalization.’ ‘And in Elk v. Wilkins, 112 U. S. 94 (1884), the Court took the position that the Fourteenth Amendment contemplates two sources of citizenship, and two sources only: birth and naturalization. . . . Persons not . . . subject to the jurisdiction of the United States at the time of birth cannot become so afterwards, except by being naturalized, either individually, as by proceedings under the naturalization acts, or collectively, as by the force of a treaty by which foreign territory is acquired.'” There is a distinction between obtaining citizenship by birth, that is, being born in the US; and becoming a citizen at birth through an Act of Congress, that is, naturalization.
Based on the Constitution, the Fourteenth Amendment and numerous Supreme Court decisions, Ted Cruz is arguably a naturalized US citizen and ineligible for the Presidency.
The issue over the idea of natural born citizen is being touted quite a bit leading up to the GOP debate this week and in its wake, too many people are confused and have not looked at what the Constitution says, nor have they taken the time to go back and see how the founders understood the term. They regurgitate what conservative talking heads and such spew out about Supreme Court rulings and cite laws that do not deal with the term natural born citizen. However, the elephant in the room (or the Constitution) that is never addressed is the differences of how there are the apparent differences of citizens in the Constitution itself.
I have alluded to this previously when pointing out that the Constitution specifically addresses in the very qualifications that there are natural born citizens and citizens.
Article II, Section 1, Clause 5 of the US Constitution reads: No Person except a natural born Citizen, or a Citizen of the United States, at the time of the Adoption of this Constitution, shall be eligible to the Office of President; neither shall any Person be eligible to that Office who shall not have attained to the Age of thirty-five Years, and been fourteen Years a Resident within the United States. (Emphasis mine) Now, there is no question that men like Ted Cruz, Marco Rubio and Bobby Jindal all meet the criteria of being at least 35 years old and have been residents in the States. There is also no question that these men are citizens. The question is, are they natural born citizens.
The other night in the debate, Ted Cruz mixed up natural born citizen and citizen just like he has in the past. However, he’s not the only one that does that. There are lots of people who claim you are either a citizen or a naturalized citizen and there is nothing else that can be added to another kind of citizen, but that’s not what the framers had in mind and it isn’t even what the Constitution presents to us.
First, as has been very eloquently presented by Publius Huldah, the founders had at least three copies of Vattel’s Law of Nations in their possession during the first Constitutional Convention and they made use of it. In that book, it is the first place that we read about a natural born citizen. Vattel writes concerning citizens and natives:
The citizens are the members of the civil society; bound to this society by certain duties, and subject to its authority, they equally participate in its advantages. The natives, or natural-born citizens, are those born in the country, of parents who are citizens. As the society cannot exist and perpetuate itself otherwise than by the children of the citizens, those children naturally follow the condition of their fathers, and succeed to all their rights. The society is supposed to desire this, in consequence of what it owes to its own preservation; and it is presumed, as matter of course, that each citizen, on entering into society, reserves to his children the right of becoming members of it. The country of the fathers is therefore that of the children; and these become true citizens merely by their tacit consent. We shall soon see whether, on their coming to the years of discretion, they may renounce their right, and what they owe to the society in which they were born. I say, that, in order to be of the country, it is necessary that a person be born of a father who is a citizen; for, if he is born there of a foreigner, it will be only the place of his birth, and not his country. (Emphasis mine)
Clearly, Vattel, in defining natural born citizen, would have deemed Obama, Cruz, Jindal and Rubio as those who are not natural born citizens. I really don’t think there is any argument against Vattel on that. However, the question is, does the Constitution follow that thinking? Lo, and behold, it does.
As cited above, there is a clear distinction between a natural born citizen and the citizens in the grandfather clause. While many of those in America would be considered citizens at the time of the founding, they would never be natural born citizens and so this was the need for the grandfather clause.
But consider in addition to Article II, Section 1 that deals with the requirement to be a natural born citizen for the President, that there are other requirements for representatives and senators and notice the language:
Article I, Section 2 states: “No Person shall be a Representative who shall not have attained to the Age of twenty five Years, and been seven Years a Citizen of the United States, and who shall not, when elected, be an Inhabitant of that State in which he shall be chosen.”
Article I, Section 3 states: “No Person shall be a Senator who shall not have attained to the Age of thirty Years, and been nine Years a Citizen of the United States, and who shall not, when elected, be an Inhabitant of that State for which he shall be chosen.” Do you notice something that is obviously missing from a requirement of these offices that is in the requirement for President? That’s right, there is no requirement for representatives and senators to be natural born citizens. Rather, the framers simply used the term citizen, as they did in Article II, Section 1. We can also see that they emphasized a length of time one had to be a citizen to hold that office (7 years for a representative and 9 years for a senator).
So, what is the issue, you ask? Clearly, the framers saw, for lack of a better term, “different classes of citizens.” This has nothing to do with diminishing the rights of any citizen, but distinguished who would have the privilege of serving in these offices and who could not.
The real difference here is this: natural born citizen is a fact and citizen is a legal status.
And lest you think I’m straining at gnats here, understand that the “devil is always in the details,” or in this case, the distinction of natural born citizen and citizen. The framers have even written in such a way to make that distinction. Every other place in the Constitution, only the term citizen is used and I believe it was a clear indication of protecting an office that only one man holds and they wanted to ensure that his loyalties were not divided with dual citizenship allegiances.
My contention in this matter is not about personalities. I have addressed the issue with Obama and now I’m addressing it with those who claim to be on my side. The issue is one of principle. To mix and match citizen with natural born citizen is to undermine the very wording of the Constitution and distinction of those terms for the purpose of holding office.
This article is far longer than I desired it to be already, but I hope that it sets a foundation of understanding that the Constitution presents the two citizens as distinct. I will continue my thoughts on this in a future installment. Stay tuned.
