It’s true that there is another 13th Amendment”, but it’s not missing and the circumstance is not exactly as people are interpreting it. They think that there is one Constitution and that the so-called “original 13th Amendment” was ratified and then mysteriously disappeared.
In fact, there are two different constitutions involved. The Titles of Nobility Amendment was ratified by the original land jurisdiction states in 1819 and became part of The Constitution for the united States of America.
It was not included in the look-alike, sound-alike Federal (Territorial) Constitution published in 1868 as the Constitution of the United States of America. Instead, the 13th Amendment to that document was the one consenting to the abolition of slavery everyone is familiar with.
In addition, there is also a Federal (Municipal) Constitution called the Constitution of the United States. This is the “Constitution” that YOUR Congressmen and Senators are taking their oaths to—-hence the reason that they are not concerned about honoring the other constitutions, are not responsive to your needs, and don’t represent you.
The lawyers, the Popes, the British Crown, and the British Monarch all pushed and supported the Federal Territorial Constitution, because under its provisions the Pope’s bill collectors and the British Monarch’s “maritime fleet” could continue to be here and work without being prohibited from holding office or facing other penalties resulting from the conflict of interest that is part of their membership in the BAR Associations and loyalties to the British Monarch.
If you go back to The Definitive Treaty of Peace, Paris, 1783 which ended the Revolutionary War, you will see that there are two populations present—- the “free, sovereign, and independent people of the United States” and the “inhabitants”—British soldiers, bureaucrats, and Tories loyal to the King, who are left here after the war to provide “essential government services”. The same language is then echoed in the actual Constitution in Article IV.
Thus there have always been two groups — the American people living in their fifty separate states collectively known as “the people of the united States of America” and the “United States Citizens” who merely reside among us in order to provide the nineteen services delegated to them under the original equity contract —- The Constitution for the united States of America.
The patriots and the Tories have lived together cheek and jowl ever since.
The illegal mercenary conflict known euphemistically as the “American Civil War” was actually a fight between these two opposing groups and the various European banks that had dogs in the fight. At the end of this illegal “war-in-name-only” the Southern States lay in ruins and the Northern States were bankrupt and under receivership of bank-appointed Trustees.
The United States of America would not re-emerge from bankruptcy until 1907. Note the capital “t” on The United States of America. Meanwhile, a federal corporation named “the United States of America” would operate as its doppelganger.
While the Carpetbaggers ravaged the South, bank Trustees operating as members of “Congress” raped and pillaged the North, too. They have continued this “cozy”—–and totally illegal —- arrangement to the current day. Ask the Congressional Research Service. The operative parts of the Reconstruction Acts have never been repealed and are still in use.
It was also during this time immediately following the end of the Civil War that the venal court system got a toe-hold (May 1865) the Rump Congress established ten military districts throughout the eleven vanquished Southern States. The military commanders in charge of these districts were allowed to appoint civilians loyal to the union cause to serve as magistrates and judges in these “district” courts—- and so, “United States” District Courts came into being, as opposed to Postal District Courts, which the people are owed, and the international jurisdiction of the sea (martial law) was imposed instead of the Common Law.
Using these foreign law forms, the perpetrators were able to summarily deprive people of their rights and their property, just as they are doing today.
All of this was accomplished under color of law, by constructive fraud, by similar names deceit, and unlawful conversion of property interests beginning in 1865. The perps have tried to justify this by claiming that they and their government are in a constant state of “war” of some kind or other, and claiming “war powers” that were never granted to them, etc., etc., but in fact what started as fraud ends as fraud, as fraud taints everything it touches and nullifies all resulting actions.
We are here today, 150 years later, cleaning up the results of the so-called Civil War.
It is high time we all knew and faced the facts.
President Trump, as Commander-in-Chief, can shut down all the United States District Courts and “federated” State of State Courts which also operate under color of law on American soil. He can lawfully do away with the problems he has encountered with the Circuit Courts bucking him. And there is already US Supreme Court precedent deciding the issues: Milligan Ex Parte, very clearly states, that when American Common Law courts are present, the military courts must disappear.
And so they did largely disappear for a period of years, from approximately 1880 to 1965, we had Federal (Postal District) Courts operating and Federal Marshals protecting the undelegated powers of the states and the people.
But the rats were hard at it, trying to get in the grain again….. and they came up with “Federal Revenue Sharing” and “Block Grants” as the bait to fully re-institute their “Reconstruction” scenario and give full power to pillage and plunder to their bogus maritime courts.
State of State franchises had first been established under the auspices of the United States of America, Inc. that was bankrupted by Roosevelt in 1933. These were operated under names like “State of Wisconsin” and “State of Minnesota” and also under names like “Elizabeth Emily Jacobsen” and “Frederick William Sloane”. When the parent corporation was declared bankrupt, the “State of State” franchises were offered as sureties for the debt. (Conference of Governors, March 6, 1933). Those State of State organizations had placed undisclosed liens against our names and our private property assets and had hypothecated debt against them, so, the “US Trustees”—Federal Reserve, IBRD and World Bank appointees— came in and seized title to literally everything in sight. For the next 66 years, Americans would be forced to pay off the debts of a mostly foreign, privately owned governmental services corporation and never be told a word about what they supposedly agreed to or how their participation in this scheme was secured via various adhesion contracts that were misrepresented and non-disclosed and forced upon them as “government mandates”—- social security, driver licenses, marriage licenses, and registration of births.
But, the government services still had to be provided, didn’t they? So FDR signed over the interest in the United States of America, Inc., and its sureties to the IMF at Bretton Woods, and two years later, the IMF took over as the UNITED STATES, INC. and fronted its very own franchises — like the STATE OF WASHINGTON and the COMMONWEALTH OF MASSACHUSETTS. And they followed in the footsteps of FDR to set up franchises named after living Americans— a vast crime of personage and unlawful conversion and enslavement. This is where the all capital names — which are actually not names, but alphabetical account ledgers— appeared. Thus we have “MARTIN ALLAN SHEHAN” and “LUCY MAE SCHELLING” magically added to the tax rolls and all interest in their property is rolled over and “donated” to the IMF as abandoned property and the actual living people of the same name are deemed to be “Account Holders” liable to pay the debts of these concocted legal fiction entities.
Add a crooked “double accrual accounting” bookkeeping system, whereby the debts of “MARTIN ALLEN SHEHAN” are assiduously pursued by the IRS as debts owed to the UNITED STATES and STATE OF CALIFORNIA, and the credits owed to “MARTIN ALLEN SHEHAN” are just as promptly collected and maintained by The Internal Revenue Service as a credit ledger that the UNITED STATES and STATE OF CALIFORNIA can borrow against, and you have the rest of the fraud in hand.
None of the people thus victimized were ever told a word about any of this. They never knowingly, willingly and with fully disclosed consent agreed to any of it. It was all foisted off on them by crooked lawyers, crooked bankers, and crooked politicians, enforced by crooked and/or unknowing police forces, and shoved down to the tune of Yankee Doodle Dandy.
So now here we are, the whistle has been blown, the non-existent “National Debt” has been repudiated as an obvious fraud and odious debt. The American people have finally stood up and said, “WTF is going on here?” and President Donald J. Trump needs answers.
Our Living Law Firm has plenty of answers. We are inviting President Trump and his advisors to Philadelphia to see what we can all do to finally straighten this 150 year-old mess out, regain control of our country, restructure our international relationships, and fix the broken world economy.

Illinois lies in the Midwest on the Great Lakes and is politically dominated by the massive Chicago urban center, yet for all the numbers of people in the City of Chicago and Cook County in particular, Cook County remains a county like any other, limited by its own geographic parameters.
This is part of the genius of the American Way. Cook County may have far more people in it than other counties in Illinois. It may be wealthier by far. It may have different problems and different options for solving its problems. At the end of the day, it’s still a county circumscribed and limited by its own borders.
Like every other county in America, it may choose to conduct its day to day business using an incorporated franchise of the United States, Inc. — or not.
The county becomes eligible for federal corporation kickbacks known as “federal revenue sharing” when it “enfranchises” itself, but it also becomes liable for federal taxation and federal regulation, becoming a virtual rubber stamp for whatever policies the privately owned and operated foreign corporation doing business as the “United States” decrees.
Like every other county in America, Cook County is ultimately and actually owned by the people living in Cook County. They get to decide whether or not to operate their county government as a federal franchise or not. This unincorporated body politic gets to assemble itself whenever an American state national living in Cook County gives a 30 day Notice and announces a public meeting of the Land Jurisdiction Cook County Assembly.
This is not the corporate version of “Cook County Assembly”.
This is the actual Body Politic as opposed to a “representational” body.
Instead of handing their proxies to an agent elected to act in their stead as a member of the Board of Directors of Cook County, Inc. calling himself an “Assemblyman”, the people have the absolute retained right to conduct their own business and to bypass the use of any agent to do their business. It’s the difference between sending your servant to town to conduct your business for you, and doing it yourself.
Whereas anyone can be elected to serve as an “Assemblyman” for Cook County, Inc., including lawyers and US CITIZENS, not just anyone can be a member of the actual Cook County Assembly.
The actual unincorporated Cook County Assembly is composed of American state nationals and Illinois State Citizens living in Cook County, Illinois. They have to be either natural born or naturalized Illinoisans and they have to be claiming that political status in order to be members of the actual, unincorporated Cook County Assembly.
The people properly claiming their birth right political status are then enabled to crack the whip and tell the members of the Cook County Assembly, Inc. what to do and how to do it, and can even tell the “Assemblymen” elected to serve on the board of Cook County, Inc. to dissolve Cook County, Inc. and resume operations as an unincorporated county.
This means an end to federal corporation kickbacks, but it also means an end to federal taxation and federal debt obligations, federal regulation and corruption in general.
As in all other counties, Cook County is defined by its geographic borders. It is a recognizable land mass. The American people living within its borders make up its Assembly. There is only one Assembly per county in America, by definition.
A county may have townships or, in the Deep South, it may have parishes; these are smaller political subunits within the county that often have their own Town Halls or Parish Centers and these may be organized to locally select delegates to the County Assembly, or not. It just depends on how the local government within the county structures itself and how Assemblymen are chosen.
All the same circumstances apply to organized townships and parishes. The people living in those townships and parishes can choose to run their township or parish as an incorporated franchise of the private, mostly foreign-owned United States, Inc. and let anyone serve as their “Assemblymen”— or they can assemble themselves, foreswear federal kickbacks in favor of freedom from federal taxes, debts, and regulations, and run their own local government at both the township/parish level and the county level.
These American people are not “United States Citizens” nor are they “citizens of the United States”. They are native born or naturalized Americans living in their geographically defined state of the Union. They are known as Illinoisans, Texans, Wisconsinites, and so on. They are the actual owners of everything in sight, the sovereigns of the land jurisdiction states.
And it is long past due for them to return home to the land they are heir to.
Okay, so now we have Cook County, Illinois, back on the map. The actual people have given the necessary public notice of a meeting of the Land Jurisdiction Cook County Assembly.
The people attending this meeting must provide proof of their declared political status. This proof includes a Witnessed and recorded Act of Expatriation, renouncing any United States or other citizenship, and claiming back their political status as Illinoisans. It also includes proof that they have surrendered any US PERSON(S) issued to them via Birth Certificates, by returning and endorsing these Birth Certificates back to the Secretary of the Treasury, crediting the United States of America, U.S. Treasury, without recourse.
They are now free of any presumption of voluntarily acting as United States Citizens or as citizens of the United States. They emerge as the Priority Creditors and Underwriters of the United States, Inc. and all its Territorial States of States and all its Municipal franchises.
They are free men and women, attending to the business of their own county, acting through a lawful County Assembly and there is only one each such Assembly owed to every county in America.
This County Assembly is enabled to elect its own Sheriff to serve the land jurisdiction county, to uphold the public and organic law of Illinois and the United States of America. He is then the top peacekeeping officer in Cook County. He outranks – by far – all the hired police, all the detectives, all the commissioners on the incorporated “Cook County, Inc.” payroll.
The actual Cook County Assembly can also elect its own justices (Justices of the Peace) and its own Court Clerks and its own Bailiffs, Coroners, and other court officers.
There isn’t a corporation anywhere, inside or outside of the borders of Cook County, who has a right or a word to say otherwise, because within the borders of Cook County, the actual Cook County Assembly holds the absolute power of self-determination for that county and the people living in it. They can purge and pitch any law or statute put in place by “Cook County, Inc.” and they can choose to dissolve Cook County, Inc. and put an unincorporated business that is under their direct control in its place.
It should now be clear just how vital your participation in your own local government is, and how that participation or lack thereof impacts every aspect of your daily life.
It also makes clear how important your political status is. As a United States Citizen you are “presumed” to be a federal corporation employee. As a “citizen of the United States” you are presumed to be a slave owned by the federal corporation doing business as the “United States”.
Unless you are actually employed by the federal government as a military or federal civilian employee, why would you ever claim to be a United States Citizen, subject to federal Territorial law? Unless you were truly desperate for political asylum or other aid of some kind, why would you ever agree to be considered a slave and chattel owned by the United States, Inc.? Nobody in their right mind would knowingly and willingly choose that fate, instead of being a free man.
In the last several days I have been in communication with several assemblies beginning or having begun their meetings and organization efforts in Illinois. Many questions have surfaced about how to create an assembly, how to establish correct political status for its members, how to give public notices, hold elections, and in general—-how is everything supposed to work?
Does the Assembly have the power to unseat a Grand Jury member or administrator? — And so on.
[Grand Juries are totally independent of Assembly action once they are created and functioning on their own. They direct their own affairs, hire and fire their own administrators, etc. The County Assembly can impeach a whole Grand Jury that proves ineffective or unwilling to perform and can replace it with a new Grand Jury, just as a Trial Jury can be replaced from the jury pool for cause— but an Assembly is not allowed to meddle in the internal affairs of a sitting Grand Jury. Any other arrangement would quickly render the Grand Jury a political tool instead of an instrument of justice.
These and many, many other questions have already been answered by the longest-running Post-Civil War American State Jural Assembly—the Michigan General Jural Assembly. They have written the book on the subject that everyone needs to know more about. They host a National Assembly Training Call every week on Thursday nights: 1-712-770-4170, Access Number 226823#, and they can be reached via email at http://1stmichiganassembly.info.
As you reorganize your county assemblies and state assemblies and take back control of your counties, your states, and your lives— make use of the knowledge, experience, and resources of the Michigan General Jural Assembly.
A new handbook about the Grand Jury as an institution is on the way.

By Anna Von Reitz
We are Third Party Beneficiaries with respect to the National Trust created in the Preamble and are indemnified in the British system under two Royal Sovereign Seals— the seal of King George the III with respect to the delegated powers, and the seal of William Belcher with respect to the undelegated powers, otherwise known as the Great Seal of the United States. William Belcher inherited his sovereignty as a result of the Norman Conquest of Britain and Wales. Thus, the Definitive Treaty of Peace, Paris, 1783, calls George III the “prince of the United States” and does not mention who the actual Head of State—the “king” of the United States— was. Later generations simply presumed it was the British Monarch, with results disastrous to them and to us.
This split of delegated and undelegated powers held by two sovereigns in international jurisdiction ultimately resulted in the situation we have today, where the delegated powers are held by the British-backed United States and the undelegated powers are held by the “states and people” under the Belcher Seal and operated by the United States of America by default.
The misunderstanding about our states (and also, therefore, our state offices) comes about because people don’t grasp the difference between the international jurisdiction of the sea and the national jurisdiction of the land. Everything discussed above, including the National Trust established by the Preamble, exists only in the international jurisdiction of the sea and has nothing to do with our sovereignty on the land.
We have all been taught to focus on the Constitution but that is substantially a red herring in that it discusses only our position with respect to the foreign international jurisdiction and says nothing about our own sovereign domain. This can be excused in that our land jurisdiction was never the subject of The Constitution, so why would the Founders talk about that? We were expected to know the basis of our own sovereignty on the land, just as we were expected to know the history and protect our own Common Law Courts from British meddling.
Two centuries later, the situation speaks for itself.
As to our sovereignty on the land which vests itself in our nations called “states” for international purposes, that sovereignty derives from entirely different authorities and specifically begins with a land grant and settlement made by the King of Spain in 1778 via (yet another) Treaty of Paris.
The situation was that the British King was financing both sides of the Revolution to hedge his bets— he emerged the victor to a greater or lesser extent, either way. The King of France was intermediary funneling funds to the Americans. The King of Spain, however, had grudges against both the King of Britain and the King of France —- and he was in charge of the land jurisdiction worldwide, thanks to the claims of the Holy See and its “dispensations” under the Unam Sanctum Trust.
So while the Americans were concluding their treaty with France to secure what most of them believed was French support for the American Revolution, the King of Spain quietly granted the entire continent (absent Spain’s holdings of course) to the rebels via the “other” Treaty of Paris, 1778. If they could win the war, the land was already vouchsafed to them— and as of 1778, it was available to them to use as collateral to borrow against internationally.
This is how the Americans financed their loans from the French King who was actually acting as a pass-through agent for King George III. They wagered their claim to the land given to them by the Spanish King and used it as collateral. If George III had won the ground war, he would have won the whole shooting match; as it was, he emerged with a tidy debt owed by the Americans and a great deal of leverage, which he used to secure the delegated powers granted to him and his proxy government in DC.
The land claim passed from the Spanish King to the colonies, which in the years immediately following the end of open hostilities with Britain (1783-1789) undertook a number of inter-colony initiatives to settle the land jurisdiction claims. This all focused on settling the national borders of the separate nation-states, establishing trade relationships, currencies, treaties with respect to international commercial issues, taxation, interstate travel, security of the international Post Roads and Post Offices, and similar concerns. As for the basic grant of land jurisdiction, they issued another trust known as The Supreme Republican Declaration of the United Colonies, grandfathering in the original thirteen colonies as a union of land jurisdiction states, and claiming all the rest of the land jurisdiction for themselves and their progeny subject to later arrangements and acquisitions.
The later arrangements were solidified by the Northwest Ordinance which provided for the orderly creation and inclusion of territories and from the territories the creation of new nation-states which would be enabled to enter the union under the Equal Footing Doctrine. The inclusion of “other acquisitions” such as the Louisiana Purchase and the Republic of Texas and the Spanish Settlement followed the same basic pattern of establishing a form of territorial government and later, upon enrollment in the original union, a separate state government.
Throughout this discussion we are talking about geographically defined nations and their body politics simply called, “California” or “Wisconsin” or “Ohio”. References in law books to these states always use the style “states”—– no capitalization whatsoever. These are the sovereign states from which our sovereignty on the land of this continent derives. These states are nations in the fullest sense of the word, just like Britain or France.
They are completely different and separate from any “State of __________”, and in fact, the word “of” means “separate from, apart from, or belonging to”, so “State of Delaware” is talking about what? The international corporation used by the actual state known as Delaware and its people to operate in international commerce.
In trade, Delaware needs no “State of _________” to conduct business within its own borders or with other unincorporated sovereign states and nations. It is only when it wishes to engage in incorporated business transactions with the other nation-states, like the State of California, or with other countries like France, that it needs to use an incorporated “State of ___________”.
And therein lies the rub.
Each state retains its right to conduct trade within its borders and also retains the right to trade with other sovereign nations; it uses a “State of _________” corporation to operate in international commerce outside its borders— and the proxy “Federal Government” run by the British Monarch has delegated control of international commerce. This control is exercised by operating all incorporated businesses in all states as franchises of the United States, Inc.
So now you know the difference between the actual land jurisdiction sovereign state and the fact that each one is in fact a separate nation, an entire country unto itself, plus you know what the “State of _________” entity is and what it is used for and who controls it and why.
None of the states operated in international commerce until after the Civil War. At that time, The United States of America, Inc. was formed, and the original states were forced to write new “state constitutions”. Under these new constitutions (all constitutions are debt agreements) the corporation used by the actual sovereign state was obliged to operate under names styled like this: California State, Wyoming State, Florida State. Meanwhile, the name “State of California” and “State of Wyoming”, etc. was “adopted” by totally different entities under new ownership.
This switch and the use of the same old names applied to different corporate entities led up to the greatest fraud in human history. The “State of Illinois” prior to the Civil War was an entirely different beastie and under completely different ownership than the “State of Illinois” after the Civil War and the same pattern applies across the whole country. There is a state constitution prior to the Civil War and a new state constitution after the Civil War.
Fast forward again to the 1930’s. FDR is working as liaison for the United States, Inc. at the Geneva Conventions, May, 1930. As a business ploy, the G-5 nations agree by private treaty to bankrupt their “international corporations” and discharge all debts left over from the First World War.
Three years later, Roosevelt, now elected President of the United States, carries through and by sleight of hand and deceptive wordsmithing, sets up a constructive fraud by which the California State, Illinois State and other land jurisdiction corporations are “assumed” to be sureties standing good for the debts of the United States, Inc. even though they are owned and operated by the United States of America, Inc.
This isn’t a corporate take-over. It’s just plain old commercial fraud in which false claims are made against the assets of a Third Party and false assumptions then lead to that innocent victim being charged for the debt via a process of commercial liens and titles and hypothecation of debt.
The American states and people were raped, pillaged, and plundered by the United States, Inc. and the British Crown from 1930 to 1999, when all debts of the bankruptcy of the United States of America were discharged and settled and our “States” doing business as “California State” and “Wisconsin State” were left derelict and adrift, mere shells —- and in exactly the same condition as a man recovering from bankruptcy.
All this was accomplished in Breach of Trust and Commercial Contract by the British Monarch and the British Government operating under color of law on our land, pretending to be our friends, allies, and protectors.
As a result of their vicious fraud our State corporations were left in financial ruin, but like a man recovering from bankruptcy, not dead.
The vermin responsible for palming off their odious debts on us have tried by every means to “finish us off” in the intervening years, without success.
All this history is necessary for you to know before I can answer your “simple” question about the oaths of office owed to our actual States.
The “vacated offices” that we are occupying belong to the land jurisdiction state and are operated as offices of the formerly bankrupted “Alaska State”, “California State” and so on. These offices were “vacated” during the long bankruptcy and so far as the vermin responsible for this circumstance are concerned, it was never anticipated that they would be re-occupied by the states and the people they belong to.
During the bankruptcy these States were operated by “State of State Legislatures” functioning as Bankruptcy Trustees—- corporate con artists overseeing the rape and the pillaging, but nonetheless “representing” the state in the position of Trustees. These legislatures operating in that capacity continued to pass “Session Laws” to administer the affairs of the victims. Thus, for example we have Session Laws that establish the “California State” under a new “state constitution” in 1879, and we have Session Laws established for the bankrupt entity throughout the bankruptcy.
It is via the circa 1870’s “constitutions” creating the Wisconsin State, Louisiana State and so on, that we maintain a chain of title and succession of contract back to the original Constitution and are enabled to enforce it. It is via the Session Laws related to the “second” state constitutions that we obtain the offices and the oaths.
All land jurisdiction offices are exercised under red ink. Business signatures are in script in Upper and Lower Case. All land jurisdiction transactions are understood to be in trade, not commerce, and are not under the control of the United States. Our business as State officials and State Citizens is all conducted under unincorporated business structures locally (hence the need for all state and county assemblies to operate as unincorporated businesses) and under undelegated powers internationally —note the red Post Marks.
All commerce is exercised in blue ink. Commercial signatures of “Account Holders” are in script in Upper and Lower Case. All sea jurisdiction transactions entered into by US PERSONS are understood to be in commerce. You are considered to be acting as a US PERSON if you retain such a PERSON. You surrender these PERSONS via surrendering the BC to the Secretary of the Treasury and appoint him your Fiduciary and credit the United States of America, U.S. Treasury, without recourse.
That settles the issue of whether you are operating as a State Citizen or a US Citizen.
This entire history from the Civil War to date is nothing but a nasty scam designed by the British to bilk their Creditors and palm off their debts on innocent Third Parties, but once you have the history and the names nailed down, it gets easier to comprehend.

Ten Important Facts for Americans
By Anna Von Reitz
Fact One: The states each retained the right to keep their own “well-regulated militia” as part of the constitutional agreement.
Fact Two: There is no provision for any state to operate multi-state armed forces of any kind under state authority.
Fact Three: The United States of America operates the undelegated powers of the states and people in international jurisdiction—that is, the union of states operates those powers and offices, not any one state.
Fact Four: The Continental Marshals operate in behalf of the United States of America (the whole union of states) to enforce their retained undelegated powers in international jurisdiction.
Fact Five: Public offices belong to the public, not to the office holder.
Fact Six: Office holders are not free to define or redefine their offices.
Fact Seven: The only people owed the public offices of the States of America, united or otherwise, are Americans born in one of the states of the union who claim their birthright political status as Texans, Minnesotans, Californians, and so on.
Fact Eight: No United States Citizen or citizen of the United States can hold a state office. None of the states allow dual citizenship.
Fact Nine: Those who fill vacated state offices must take the specific oaths of office for their state and follow the organic and Public Law to the best of their ability.
Fact Ten: Those who fill vacated state offices and who have not surrendered their federal “PERSONS” to the Secretary of the Treasury prior to assuming office are acting in Breach of Trust. This must be corrected or they must be impeached or recalled.
Be not like dumb, driven cattle.
Those who work to restore the lawful government must act lawfully, with clarity, logic, due diligence, and honor.

“And remember, where you have a concentration of power in a few hands, all too frequently men with the mentality of gangsters get control. History has proven that” ~ Lord Acton
I am absolutely sure there are millions within this country who believe to achieve constitutional government all that would be required to gain that wonderful pinnacle would be to have a super majority of Republicans in control of the lawmaking body. Unfortunately, the people of Arkansas are beginning to realize the deadly fallacy of that belief.
In November of 2016, the people of Arkansas elected a super majority of self-proclaimed “conservatives,” whatever that word means now in the political lexicon of this era.
Not since the days of Reconstruction have the people of Arkansas witnessed first hand such a full frontal assault on their constitutional rights and Liberty itself. Just name any one of the amendments in the Bill of Rights with the possible exception of the 3rd Amendment and you may rest assured the present legislature in the state of Arkansas has proposed or passed legislation designed to obliterate the rights of the people listed in said amendment.
Selected for special attacks by the army of “conservatives” has been the Second, Fifth, Seventh, Ninth and Tenth amendments. The legislature has, in its attacks on the 2A, demanded that the citizens of Arkansas pay for the right to have the means to defend themselves on the college campuses of the state. In addition, they placed an age restriction which fails to protect any student under the age of 25. You may be old enough to join the military and fight in your country’s wars, risking life and limb along the way, but, according to the “conservatives” of Arkansas, you must have attained the age of 25 before you have the right and means to protect yourself on a college campus in the “Natural State.”
Members of the Arkansas State Police, while testifying against what has been referred to as “Constitutional Carry,” which has been adopted by several other states, stated that allowing the people of Arkansas to be able to openly exercise their 2A rights, which are very plainly stated in Article 2 Section 5 of the state’s Declaration of Rights would deprive said state police of a revenue stream which would require them [state police] having to make their vehicles last longer and that some of the useless bureaucrats (my words) in the state police might actually lose their jobs.
Very early in the legislative term in Little Rock, the right to Trial by Jury—the very cornerstone of Liberty—came under attack. Just as in the Reconstruction era the Republican-dominated legislature sought to combine all three branches of government and place them under the command of one branch and eliminate the people’s ability to address malfeasance and protect the lives of the innocent. The special interest backed proposal would have limited the damages any number of these special interests, such as nursing homes or medical facilities might face, if, through negligence or malpractice, a person under their care was irreparably harmed or died. The legislature did not hide the fact they launched their attack on the Seventh amendment to protect business interests in the state, openly stating large settlements granted by juries to victims of negligence and malpractice was allegedly keeping businesses from coming to Arkansas. What desirable business comes to a state to avoid responsibility? Again, in the hands of the “conservative” super-majority, special interests come before the interest of the individual citizen.
Nowhere to be found in the oaths of office taken by the members of the legislature before they began their session was any oath to uphold and defend the interests of big business over the rights of the individual. Perhaps, along with the oath, the legislators should have been reminded of the dictum found in the Declaration of Independence that the primary duty of government is to protect the rights of the individual, not those of big business and special interests.
The “conservative” legislature also launched attacks on the very idea of transparency in government. Multiple bills were introduced which would allow the members of government and special interests to operate in secret and outside the purview of the people.
On Tuesday at the state capital, in a private one-on-one conversation with a Republican state senator who shall remain nameless, I asked this person of integrity, awash in the sea of attacks on the rights of the citizens, how he felt about his party’s super-majority and if he thought that helped or hindered the interests of the people of Arkansas. This senator candidly stated he found the super-majority to be a hindrance. He said when he took a stance on an issue based on integrity and principles, he was accosted both by fellow lawmakers and some constituents wanting to know why he was opposing the goals of the party and the so-called “conservative” governor. Here can be found concrete evidence that support of political party trumps (no pun intended) principles and the rights of the people.
As previously stated, there has not been seen since the days of the Reconstruction government in the State of Arkansas such a blatant attack on individual rights by those who allegedly represent the people. And the current elected governor is operating with the same frame of mind as the military commander of the state, Powell Clayton did during Reconstruction. With all of the religious zeal of a born-again Scalawag, the current Arkansas governor has, in an alleged effort to “unify the state,” decided to replace the birthday of the greatest Southern Icon, Robert E. Lee, a man with impeccable moral and Christian character, with instead the birthday celebration of a womanizing, serial plagiarist with heavy socialist leanings and connections.
All in all, the majority of legislative actions by the Republican super-majority in Arkansas has devolved into a socialist holiday with all thoughts of the oath to uphold and defend the American Bill of Rights and the Arkansas Declaration of Rights a very faint memory.
The great Southern minister of the 19th Century, Robert L. Dabney, provided us with ample warning of where such “conservatives” would lead us. Dabney was for a time Chief of Staff for Thomas J. (Stonewall) Jackson. Here is his prediction about conservatives come now to full bloom in the State of Arkansas.
“American conservatism is merely the shadow that follows Radicalism as it moves forward towards perdition. It remains behind it, but never retards it, and always advances near its leader. The pretended salt hath utterly lost its savor: wherewith shall it be salted? Its impotency is not hard, indeed, to explain. It is worthless because it is the conservatism of expediency only, and not of sturdy principle. It intends to risk nothing for the sake of truth, and has no idea of being guilty of the folly of martyrdom. It always—when about to enter a protest—very blandly informs the wild beast whose path it essays to stop, that its ‘bark is worse than its bite,’ and that it only means to save its manners by enacting its decent role of resistance.” (Emphasis added)
Be careful what you wish for—and more importantly—what you vote for. “All that glitters is not gold.”
IN RIGHTFUL REBEL LIBERTY
I admit I am confused and do not understand how intelligent people can still vote with all the proof we have that it is a rigged system. Ladies and gentlemen, you must be stricken with cognitive dissonance and unable to believe anything you do not want to believe. There is no such thing as freedom in America, or honest politicians!

The latest WikiLeaks revelations tell us the answer is yes
by Justin Raimondo,
WikiLeaks and Julian Assange would have gone down in history as the greatest enemies of government oppression of all kinds in any case, but their latest release – a comprehensive exposé of the US intelligence community’s cyberwar tools and techniques – is truly the capstone of their career. And given that this release – dubbed “Vault 7” – amounts to just one percent of the documents they intend to publish, one can only look forward to the coming days with a mixture of joyful anticipation and ominous fear.
Fear because the power of the Deep State is even more forbidding – and seemingly invincible – than anyone knew. Joyful anticipation because, for the first time, it is dawning on the most unlikely people that we are, for all intents and purposes, living in a police state. I was struck by this while watching Sean Hannity’s show last [Wednesday] night – yes, Fox is my go-to news channel – and listening to both Hannity and his guests, including the ultra-conservative Laura Ingraham, inveigh against the “Deep State.” For people like Hannity, Ingraham, and Newt Gingrich (of all people!) to be talking about the Surveillance State with fear – and outrage – in their voices says two things about our current predicament: 1) Due to the heroic efforts of Julian Assange in exposing the power and ruthlessness of the Deep State, the political landscape in this country is undergoing a major realignment, with conservatives returning to their historic role as the greatest defenders of civil liberties, and 2) American “liberalism” – which now champions the Deep State as the savior of the country – has become a toxic brew that is fundamentally totalitarian.
On the first point: yes, there are more than a few holdouts, like Bill O’Reilly and the neocons, but the latter are increasingly isolated, and the former is increasingly irrelevant. What we are seeing, as the role of the “intelligence community” in basically leading a seditious conspiracy against a sitting President is revealed, is a complete switch in the political polarities in this country: what passes for the “left” has become the biggest advocate of the Surveillance State, and the rising populist right is coming to the hard-won conclusion that we are rapidly becoming a police state.
Ah, but wait! That’s not the whole story: bear with me for a while.
The material in “Vault 7” is extensive: it ranges from examining the ways in which a Samsung television set that is seemingly turned off can be– and no doubt has been – used to spy on the conversations and activities of a room’s occupants, to the various ways in which our spooks infiltrate and subvert common electronic devices, such as the I-Phone, in order to gather information. “Infected phones,” we are told in the introduction to the material, “can be instructed to send the CIA the user’s geolocation, audio and text communications as well as covertly activate the phone’s camera and microphone.” The CIA is even working on remotely controlling the electronic steering systems installed in cars – a perfect route to pulling off an assassination that looks like an “accident.” Not that the intelligence services of the “leader of the Free World” would ever consider such an act.
The massive infection of commonly used software and electronic devices leads to a major problem: proliferation. As these viruses and other invasive programs are unleashed on an unsuspecting public, they fall into the hands of a variety of bad actors: foreign governments, criminals, and teenagers on a lark (not necessarily in descending order of malevolence). This plague is being spread over the Internet by a veritable army of CIA hackers: “By the end of 2016,” WikiLeaks tells us, “the CIA’s hacking division, which formally falls under the agency’s Center for Cyber Intelligence (CCI), had over 5000 registered users and had produced more than a thousand hacking systems, trojans, viruses, and other ‘weaponized’ malware.” The inevitable end result: a world infected with so much malware that computers become almost useless – and this parlous condition is paid for by you, the American taxpayer.
This is, in effect, the cybernetic equivalent of the Iraq war – an invasion that led to such unintended consequences as the rise of ISIS, the devastation of Syria, and the empowerment of Iran. In short, a war that made us less safe.
One aspect of the Vault 7 data dump that’s drawing particular attention is the CIA’s Remote Devices Branch’s “Umbrage group,” which, we are told, “collects and maintains a substantial library of attack techniques ‘stolen’ from malware produced in other states including the Russian Federation.” The idea is to mask the Agency’s cyberwar operations by attempting to hide the unique forensic attributes of its techniques. The process of attribution, WikiLeaks explains, is “analogous to finding the same distinctive knife wound on multiple separate murder victims. The unique wounding style creates suspicion that a single murderer is responsible. As soon one murder in the set is solved then the other murders also find likely attribution.”
So how does the CIA hide its “fingerprints”?
It simply draws on computer code used by its adversaries – and not only Russia – and inserts it into its own handcrafted malware and other invasive programs, thus leaving Russian (or Chinese, or North Korean) fingerprints on the handiwork of CIA hackers.
Now you’ll recall that the attribution of the DNC/Podesta email hacks was “proved” by the DNC’s hired hands on the basis of the supposedly unique characteristics of the programs used by the supposed Russian hackers. One of these alleged Russians even left behind the name of Felix Dzerzhinsky – founder of the Soviet KGB – embedded in the code, hardly the height of subtlety. So now we learn that the CIA has perfected the art of imitating its rivals, mimicking the Russians – or whomever – in a perfect setup for a “false flag” scenario.
After months of the nonstop campaign to demonize the Russians as “subverting our democracy” and supposedly throwing the election to Donald Trump by hacking the DNC and Podesta, a new possibility begins to emerge. I say “possibility” because, despite the craziness that is fast becoming the norm, there has got to be a limit to it – or does there?
No, I’m not suggesting the CIA hacked the DNC and poor hapless John Podesta. Yet others are suggesting something even more explosive.
In an appearance on Sean Hannity’s Fox News television program, retired Lt. Col. Tony Shaffer, a former senior intelligence officer, told the audience that he had heard from his intelligence contacts that retired NSA officials were responsible for hacking the DNC and Podesta, and then releasing the materials to WikiLeaks His co-guest, William Binney, a former NSA insider who was among the first to expose the extent of that agency’s surveillance of American citizens, agreed.
This is nothing new: Judge Andrew Napolitano said the same thing months ago. The alleged motivation was animus toward Mrs. Clinton.
Although “the Russians did it” is now the accepted conventional wisdom, which hardly anyone bothers to question anymore, the level of evidence proffered to support this conclusion has been laughably inadequate. And you’ll note that, although the CIA and the FBI, along with other intelligence agencies, advanced this hypothesis with “high confidence,” the NSA demurred, awarding it with only “moderate” confidence.
And one more thing: I found it extremely odd that, when the hacking of the DNC and John Podesta’s email was discovered, party officials refused to let the FBI and other law enforcement agencies examine either their server or Podesta’s devices. Instead, they gave it over to CrowdStrike, a private firm that regularly does business with the DNC. CrowdStrike then came out with the now-accepted analysis that it was a Russian job.
Could it be that the “explanation” for the hacking was determined in advance?
I don’t know the answer to that question. Nor do I necessarily buy Col. Shaffer’s thesis. What I’m saying is that it’s entirely possible – indeed, it is just as likely, given what we know now, as pinning the blame on Vladimir Putin.
So what is the lesson of all this?
We have created a monster, a Deep State with such unchecked power, armed with such Orwellian technology, that it represents a clear and present danger to our constitutional republic. This threat is underscored not only by the latest WikiLeaks revelations, but also by the intelligence community’s intervention in our domestic politics, which has been documented in the headlines of the nation’s newspapers for the past few months.
This cancer has been allowed to grow, undiagnosed and unopposed, within the vitals of our government in the name of “national security.” Accelerated by our foreign policy of perpetual war, the national security bureaucracy has accumulated immense power, and our elected leaders have neglected to provide any oversight. Indeed, they are at its mercy.
The latest WikiLeaks revelations should be a wake-up call for all of us who want to preserve what’s left of our constitutionally-guaranteed liberties. Either we slay the monster or it will enslave us.
A Special Note: Amazingly, we have come to the end of our fundraising campaign, having reached our goal a few days earlier than last time around. I want to thank everyone who made this possible: no matter how much you gave, your tax-deductible donation is a vote of confidence in the work we have been doing for the past twenty-plus years – and will continue to do, thanks to you. I always panic when fundraising time comes around – what if they don’t give, I think to myself. What if they’re as broke as I am? What if …? My fears have been allayed, at least for the moment, and I can get a good night’s sleep – so thank you for that.
Speaking of a good night’s rest: I normally get up around 4 in the morning and start working on my column. And I’m up at all hours, researching – not to mention tweeting! – until I drop. Now that I’ve reached the ripe old age of 65 – ugh! – this is taking a toll on me, physically. And so I’ve decided to give myself a break, albeit a short one. I’m taking most of next week off, but I’ll be back on Friday – and maybe before, if Something Big occurs.
At any rate, watch this space, and I’ll see you on Friday. And once again: thanks to all who gave. I can’t even begin to thank you enough.

That Neither Economists nor Laypeople Know…
Private Banks – Not the Government or Central Banks – Create 97 Percent of All Money
Who creates money?
Most people assume that money is created by governments … or perhaps central banks.
In reality – as noted by the Bank of England, Britain’s central bank – 97% of all money in circulation is created by private banks.
Bank Loans = Creating Money Out of Thin Air
But how do private banks create money?
We’ve all been taught that banks first take in deposits, and then they loan out those deposits to folks who want to borrow.
But this is a myth …
The Bank of England the German central bank have explained that loans are extended before deposits exist … and that the loans create deposits:
The above is from an official video released by the Bank of England.
The Bank of England explains:
Whenever a bank makes a loan, it simultaneously creates a matching deposit in the borrower’s bank account, thereby creating new money.
The reality of how money is created today differs from the description found in some economics textbooks:
- Rather than banks receivingdeposits when households save and then lending them out, bank lending creates
One common misconception is that banks act simply as intermediaries, lending out the deposits that savers place with them. In this view deposits are typically ‘created’ by the saving decisions of households, and banks then ‘lend out’ those existing deposits to borrowers, for example to companies looking to finance investment or individuals wanting to purchase houses.
In reality in the modern economy, commercial banks are the creators of deposit money …. Rather than banks lending out deposits that are placed with them, the act of lending creates deposits — the reverse of the sequence typically described in textbooks.
Commercial banks create money, in the form of bank deposits, by making new loans. When a bank makes a loan, for example to someone taking out a mortgage to buy a house, it does not typically do so by giving them thousands of pounds worth of banknotes. Instead, it credits their bank account with a bank deposit of the size of the mortgage. At that moment, new money is created. For this reason, some economists have referred to bank deposits as ‘fountain pen money’, created at the stroke of bankers’ pens when they approve loans.
This description of money creation contrasts with the notion that banks can only lend out pre-existing money, outlined in the previous section. Bank deposits are simply a record of how much the bank itself owes its customers. So they are a liability of the bank, not an asset that could be lent out.
Similarly, the Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago published a booklet called “Modern Money Mechanics” in the 1960s stating:
[Banks] do not really pay out loans from the money they receive as deposits. If they did this, no additional money would be created. What they do when they make loans is to accept promissory notes in exchange for credits to the borrowers’ transaction accounts.
Monetary expert and economics professor Randall Wray explained to Washington’s Blog that:
Bank deposits are bank IOUs.
Economics professor Richard Werner – who obtained his PhD in economics from Oxford, was the first Shimomura Fellow at the Research Institute for Capital Formation at the Development Bank of Japan, Visiting Researcher at the Institute for Monetary and Economic Studies at the Bank of Japan, Visiting Scholar at the Institute for Monetary and Fiscal Studies at the Ministry of Finance, and chief economist of Jardine Fleming – was granted access to study a bank’s books, and confirmed that private banks create money when they simply create fictitious deposits into a borrower’s account.
What banks do is to simply reclassify their accounts payable items arising from the act of lending as ‘customer deposits’, and the general public, when receiving payment in the form of a transfer of bank deposits, believes that a form of money had been paid into the bank.
No balance is drawn down to make a payment to the borrower.
The bank does not actually make any money available to the borrower: No transfer of funds from anywhere to the customer or indeed the customer’s account takes place. There is no equal reduction in the balance of another account to defray the borrower. Instead, the bank simply re-classified its liabilities, changing the ‘accounts payable’ obligation arising from the bank loan contract to another liability category called ‘customer deposits’.
While the borrower is given the impression that the bank had transferred money from its capital, reserves or other accounts to the borrower’s account (as indeed major theories of banking, the financial intermediation and fractional reserve theories, erroneously claim), in reality this is not the case. Neither the bank nor the customer deposited any money, nor were any funds from anywhere outside the bank utilised to make the deposit in the borrower’s account. Indeed, there was no depositing of any funds.
The bank’s liability is simply re-named a ‘bank deposit’.
Banks create money when they grant a loan: they invent a fictitious customer deposit, which the central bank and all users of our monetary system, consider to be ‘money’, indistinguishable from ‘real’ deposits not newly invented by the banks. Thus banks do not just grant credit, they create credit, and simultaneously they create money.
Instead of discharging their liability to pay out loans, the banks merely reclassify their liabilities originating from loan contracts from what should be an ‘accounts payable’ item to ‘customer deposit’ ….
How Can Banks DO This?
Professor Werner explains the reason that banks – but no one else – can create money out of thin air is that they are the only institution exempted from normal accounting rules.
Specifically, every other company would be busted for fraudulent accounting if they conjured new money out of thin air by reclassifying a liability (i.e. an accounts payable) as an asset (i.e. a deposit).
But the banks have pushed through exemptions so that they don’t have to follow normal accounting rules:
What enables banks to create credit and hence money is their exemption from the Client Money Rules. Thanks to this exemption they are allowed to keep customer deposits on their own balance sheet. This means that depositors who deposit their money with a bank are no longer the legal owners of this money. Instead, they are just one of the general creditors of the bank whom it owes money to. It also means that the bank is able to access the records of the customer deposits held with it and invent a new ‘customer deposit’ that had not actually been paid in, but instead is a re-classified accounts payable liability of the bank arising from a loan contract.
What makes banks unique and explains the combination of lending and deposit-taking under one roof is the more fundamental fact that they do not have to segregate client accounts, and thus are able to engage in an exercise of ‘re-labelling’ and mixing different liabilities, specifically by re-assigning their accounts payable liabilities incurred when entering into loan agreements, to another category of liability called ‘customer deposits’.
What distinguishes banks from non-banks is their ability to create credit and money through lending, which is accomplished by booking what actually are accounts payable liabilities as imaginary customer deposits, and this is in turn made possible by a particular regulation that renders banks unique: their exemption from the Client Money Rules. [Werner gives a concrete example on British law for banking and non-banking institutions.]
Sound fraudulent? Professor Werner thinks so, also:
But he also makes some more important points …
What Does It All Mean? The Implications of Money Creation By Private Banks
Mainstream economists believe that private debt doesn’t even “exist“ as a force that acts on the economy. For example, Ben Bernanke and Paul Krugman assume that huge levels of household debt don’t hurt the economy because more debt among households just means that savers have loaned them money … i.e. that it is a net wash to the economy. To make this assumption, they rely on the myth debunked above … that banks can only loan as much money out as they have in deposits. In reality, 143 years of history shows that excessive private debt – in and of itself – can cause depressions.
Moreover, Professor Werner points out that attempts to shore up the banking system with capital requirements (such as the Basel accords) are doomed to failure, since they don’t recognize that banks create money at will:
Basel rules were doomed to failure, since they consider banks as financial intermediaries, when in actual fact they are the creators of the money supply. Since banks invent money as fictitious deposits, it can be readily shown that capital adequacy based bank regulation does not have to restrict bank activity: banks can create money and hence can arrange for money to be made available to purchase newly issued shares that increase their bank capital. In other words, banks could simply invent the money that is then used to increase their capital. This is what Barclays Bank did in 2008, in order to avoid the use of tax money to shore up the bank’s capital: Barclays ‘raised’ £5.8 bn in new equity from Gulf sovereign wealth investors — by, it has transpired, lending them the money! As is explained in Werner (2014a), Barclays implemented a standard loan operation, thus inventing the £5.8 bn deposit ‘lent’ to the investor. This deposit was then used to ‘purchase’ the newly issued Barclays shares. Thus in this case the bank liability originating from the bank loan to the Gulf investor transmuted from (1) an accounts payable liability to (2) a customer deposit liability, to finally end up as (3) equity — another category on the liability side of the bank’s balance sheet. Effectively, Barclays invented its own capital. This certainly was cheaper for the UK tax payer than using tax money. As publicly listed companies in general are not allowed to lend money to firms for the purpose of buying their stocks, it was not in conformity with the Companies Act 2006 (Section 678, Prohibition of assistance for acquisition of shares in public company). But regulators were willing to overlook this. As Werner (2014b) argues, using central bank or bank credit creation is in principle the most cost-effective way to clean up the banking system and ensure that bank credit growth recovers quickly. The Barclays case is however evidence that stricter capital requirements do not necessary prevent banks from expanding credit and money creation, since their creation of deposits generates more purchasing power with which increased bank capital can also be funded.
Moreover, Werner points out that banks create the boom-bust cycle by lending too much for speculative, non-productive purposes:
By failing to take into account the fact that banks create money, economists and governments are sowing the seeds for future crashes.
But the economics field is very resistant to change …
Economics professor Steve Keen notes in Forbes:
In any genuine science, empirical data like this would have forced the orthodoxy to rethink its position. But in economics, the profession has sailed on, blithely unaware of how their model of “banks as intermediaries between savers and investors” is seriously wrong, and now blinds them to the remedy for the crisis as it previously blinded them to the possibility of a crisis occurring.
A wit once defined an economist as someone who, when shown that something works in practice, replies “Ah! But does it work in theory?”
And a 2016 IMF paper notes:
Around [the 1960s] banks began to completely disappear from most macroeconomic models of how the economy works.
This helps explain why, when faced with the Great Recession in 2008, macroeconomics was initially unprepared to contribute much to the analysis of the interaction of banks with the macro economy. Today there is a sizable body of research on this topic, but the literature still has many difficulties.
Virtually all recent mainstream neoclassical economic research is based on the highly misleading “intermediation of loanable funds” description of banking …
In modern neoclassical intermediation of loanable funds theories, banks are seen as intermediating real savings. Lending, in this narrative, starts with banks collecting deposits of previously saved real resources (perishable consumer goods, consumer durables, machines and equipment, etc.) from savers and ends with the lending of those same real resources to borrowers. But such institutions simply do not exist in the real world. There are no loanable funds of real resources that bankers can collect and then lend out. Banks do of course collect checks or similar financial instruments, but because such instruments—to have any value—must be drawn on funds from elsewhere in the financial system, they cannot be deposits of new funds from outside the financial system. New funds are produced only with new bank loans (or when banks purchase additional financial or real assets), through book entries made by keystrokes on the banker’s keyboard at the time of disbursement. This means that the funds do not exist before the loan and that they are in the form of electronic entries—or, historically, paper ledger entries—rather than real resources.
This “financing through money creation” function of banks has been repeatedly described in publications of the world’s leading central banks—see McLeay, Radia, and Thomas (2014a, 2014b) for excellent summaries. What has been much more challenging, however, is the incorporation of these insights into macroeconomic models [how true].
What’s the Solution?
We’ve seen the problems created by failing to take into account the fact that private banks create money.
But there are solutions …
Initially, Professor Werner notes that preventing banks from creating new money to loan for speculation and mere personal consumption would prevent booms and busts:
Werner says that the “Asian Miracle” happened for exactly this reason:
Additionally, allowing small community banks to grow would cause the real economy to flourish … since small banks loan to small businesses (which create most of the jobs), while big banks only loan to giant companies and speculators:
Indeed, big banks are virtually out of the business of traditional lending … and small banks are the only ones funding Main Street.
Werner says this is the secret of Germany’s economic success:
Postscript: Due to their unique money-printing powers, banks now literally own the world … including the entire political system.
There’s a war raging in connection with banking. Remember that the giant banks tried to kill off community banking through the Trans Pacific Partnership. And as Professor Werner points out, the European Central Bank is currently in a war to destroy community banks:
One of key battles for prosperity and democracy today is decentralization of the banking system.
I have said this a hundred times: The whole world is under the thumb of these monsters, and nothing but misery is ahead unless some militaries take these bastards out. Ours is obviously under their control!

by James Belcher
Everyone needs to remember that the “United States” is a foreign entity. It’s only relationship to the united States of America is as a subcontractor obligated to provide certain enumerated government services for the states in common.
With respect to the united States of America, the United States only exercises delegated power and has no power of its own.
Yet, it does have its own bits of land used to complete its duties and it does have its own citizens— those born in Washington, DC., members of the military, the federal civil service, those born in Territorial and Insular states, and so on.
The District of Columbia is what is known as an “enclave” of this foreign United States government on American shores and Washington, DC is operated as a separate international municipal city-state by this foreign government.
The American states control all of the air jurisdiction, all of the land jurisdiction, and all un-delegated powers in the international jurisdiction of the sea owed to the united States of America, but in recent years, the United States has usurped upon and sought the overthrow of its employers and benefactors and by fraud and other surreptitious means the servants have attempted to become the masters.
The United States and the members of Congress controlling the United States as Trustees and as the Board of Directors of its corporate enterprises did this by the use of deceptively similar names, identity theft, unlawful conversion of assets, false claims in commerce, bankruptcy fraud and similar ruses and deceits, and they have attempted to substitute their own territorial and municipal “states of states” for the land jurisdiction states that the American people are owed.
Set against this backdrop and common understanding, the time has come to speak of many things, and most especially, the nature of sovereignty among men.
My ancestors came to England with William the Conqueror. Upon his death, they were among those who became “free sovereigns by their own right”. This is known as The Settlement of the Norman Conquest. Less than a hundred years later, they were among those who created and enforced the Magna Carta.
A few centuries after that, we ventured to the New World and helped to found the brave city of Boston. In 1776, we heard the call and once again, fought and beat the British Monarch.
When the United States created its “Ship of State” to sail upon international waters, it had to sail under the seal of a free sovereign. As anyone can see, the Great Seal of the United States is the Belcher seal, not King George’s. For the United States to claim that I am its citizen is a situation akin to my dog claiming that I am its pup.
In 1861, the British Monarch and the Pope tried to overcome us once again by force of arms, and failed.
What they could not win by force of arms they have tried to win by fraud and deceit and breach of trust enforced by commercial mercenaries disguised as judges and lawful government agents, all operating under color of law.
I am here to remind the progeny of the brave men who stood at Bunker Hill and White Plains and Ticonderoga of who and what you are and what you won from King George.
Just as the Belchers are free sovereigns by their own right with respect to the British Kings ever since 1087, you are “free sovereigns in your own right” owed the entirety of the united States of America.
We became free sovereigns as a result of the Norman Conquest and you became free sovereigns as a result of the Revolutionary War. Now I stand here fully acquitted on all accounts, a free sovereign in Britain and a free sovereign American as well.
When I say I am owed my free sovereignty and the Magna Carta, that’s not just whistling in the dark. That is literal, verifiable fact. Likewise, when I say I am owed the Declaration of Independence, that is also literal, verifiable fact.
When any President of the United States looks up and sees whose seal he is sailing under, he has cause to know better than to claim that I am his citizen. Very clearly, he is my citizen under international law and every word I say to him or to the British Monarch concerning their operations on this continent has the force of law and sovereign power.
I here record my Sovereign Mandate regarding all these false commercial claims advanced by the United States against the American states and people via a secretive and non-consensual process of hypothecation and declare the “National Debt” null and void, the fruit of fraud and dishonor.
The Sovereign Letters Patent and Declaration of Joint Sovereignty with the Native American nations issued in November 2016 stand alone and together as a reclamation of the land in my capacity as a free sovereign American and Son of the Revolution. They also stand as remedy for grievous errors made by administrators of the United States, extended in my capacity as a free sovereign of Britain having authority apart from and above the Queen, and as the lawful owner of the Great Seal of the United States.
My sovereign claim to own and control the United States outranks that of any British Monarch and predates any such claim by over two hundred years. Mr. Rothschild will do well to take notice that I have not accepted his offer on anything but a temporary month-by-month basis until final settlement of the bogus National Debt and the set aside of all other odious debt issues is completed. Queen Bess and Donald Trump do not have the final say.
All employees, elected officials, and inhabitants of the United States, its territories, and municipalities, are to obey the organic and Public Law of the United States [of America] without exception. No Federal Code, Public Policy, or federated State of State statute can be enforced upon a natural born American absent a true consensual obligation evidenced by conformance with the first Naturalization Law and no Federal Law may be enforced usurping beyond the delegated authorities.
All territorial and municipal Sheriffs, all law enforcement personnel and court personnel are to cease and desist their activities under color of law and are to resume their lawful offices and duties owed to the American states and people. False arrests, enforcement of victimless crime statutes against Americans who have been mischaracterized as United States Citizens or citizens of the United States, and overall failure to honor their exemptions and their extradition from federal custody must cease.
Members of the Bar Associations are to be considered undeclared Foreign Agents and their activities plundering penal bonds and individual public trusts are to be audited, corrected, and enforced as crimes by the Internal Revenue Service and local law enforcement agencies. Embezzlement by the court system via the CRIS accounts held by Federal Reserve Banks in every federal district is to be shut down immediately. Human trafficking promoted by The Bank of New York Mellon and its affiliates must similarly be shut down.
All property and titles to property rightfully belonging to Americans including the copyrights and trademarks associated with the given names is to be returned to them and the legal presumption of any form of United States citizenship pertaining to them is to be dropped from all their records including the census and in all cases at law. The repugnant practice of press-ganging Americans and suppressing their natural political status and the issuance of CUSIP Bonds in their names must cease and all indebtedness related to this practice and merely presumed to exist must be erased.
All birth records of Americans are to be returned to the land jurisdiction states as public recordings and not held as registrations. Likewise all vehicle registrations, marriage licenses, limited liability insurances, mortgages and similar contracts that Americans are naturally exempt from are to be returned to the land jurisdiction counties and converted to simple public recordings.
The Social Security obligations incurred as part of the Great Fraud are to be paid faithfully and without presumption of any kind against the vested recipients.
The United States State Department is to immediately resume issuance of American State National and American State Citizen passports and is to expedite the free flow of American travel here and abroad.
All United States agency subcontractors including the FBI, BLM, DHS, FEMA, BATF, IRS, US MARSHALS, etc., are under Notice that your role on American soil is strictly limited to the policing of actual US corporations and actual US citizens. All federated State of State organizations and County of County organizations are similarly circumscribed. This does not allow for any presumption against living Americans, nor any attachment of their private or public property based on fraudulently procured information, undisclosed or unilateral agreements, mistaken registrations, false licensing, or any other coerced adhesion contract, corporate Public Policy or improper commercial claim including hypothecation of debt.
The cost of these and all such other corrections and remedies owed by the United States to the American states and people are to be assessed against the Federal Reserve banks, the World Bank, IBRD, Bank for International Settlements, Vatican Bank, the Holy See and its affiliates and charged to the Universal Payment Bond and Bill of Lading established under my Agency as AMRI00003 recorded and presented to Cardinal Mamberti in his capacity and office as Prefect and head of the Vatican Chancery Court.
Mr. Rothschild, ELIZABETH II, FRANCISCUS, and President Donald Trump are under Sovereign Decree to correct their operations with respect to the United States as outlined above, so as to provide lasting remedy to the American states and people for all the wrongs and the violence which has been perpetuated against them by their usurping servants and foreign powers acting in Breach of Trust.

About Your Political Status:
- Your political status is your own decision. Nobody including the courts can dictate anything about it. In fact, I have it on very good and agreeable authority of the United States Supreme Court that judges in their system can’t even speak to the issue of your political status. It’s your call and nobody else’s.
- Being that your political status is your own business and nobody else’s and that it is your choice, then you are held responsible for your choice.
- Millions of Americans have been arbitrarily identified as “United States Citizens” and/or “citizens of the United States” and assigned “births” as “commercial vessels” in the British Crown’s Merchant Marine Service. This results in the establishment of an ACCOUNT dba your FIRST MIDDLE LAST name and more recently your FIRST M.I. LAST name and the presumption that you, the living man or woman, are the Account Holder responsible for administering these ACCOUNTS as good and faithful Warrant Officers of Her Majesty.
- These PERSONS are debtors and criminals by definition. See the 14th Amendment of the Federal Constitution published as The Constitution of the United States of America, 1868.
- If it is not your intention to embrace this political status, you need to inform the Secretary of the Treasury, make him your Fiduciary, sign over the PERSON’s BIRTH CERTIFICATE to the credit of the United States of America, U.S. Treasury, without recourse, by endorsing the back of the BC. You also issue an indemnity bond which is basically your agreement to operate under 100% commercial liability.
- You need to take these actions as proof that you are loyal to the United States of America and also to settle the affairs of your separate estate–but this is a private matter between you, the Secretary of the Treasury, and God.
- The employees of the Queen and the British Crown have no right to presume anything about your political status and may not even speak to you, if you deny them the consent to do so. Simply observing this fact may be sufficient to warn them off—but it is obviously better to not be bluffing and to have the paperwork proving your political status on file and your indemnity bond ready to present.
- This is especially true for those asserting their natural born political status and occupying offices in the lawful government of the United States of America. Those claiming to be State Justices and Continental Marshals need to have their paperwork in order. They also need to have proof of their lawful oath.
- The office of the State Justices is a land jurisdiction office and it operates only in the state being served. A State Justice for Alaska has no such authority in California.
- Each state has established the proper Oath for its justices and judges in its Public Session Laws. If you are a State Justice for Nevada, you have to take the Nevada Oath as required by the Nevada Session Laws.
- If you are occupying a land jurisdiction office, the oath of office is administered with your hand on the Bible, in token that you are agreeing to operate under the Law of Moses, which is known as “The Law of the Land”, and obey the Ten Commandments.
- For this same reason, all land jurisdiction Justices (that is, Justices of the Peace) carry a Bible with them into the courtroom. This is also the reason that Court Clerks require people to “All rise!” when the justice walks in— not out of respect for him or her, but out of respect for the Bible.
- To be properly seated as a State Justice, you have to have renounced all forms of United States citizenship, have surrendered the US PERSONS associated with your given name, have established your bond with the Treasury, and taken the proper Oath required by your state of the United States of America.
- Now, strictly speaking, it isn’t your employee’s business, but they have a reasonable excuse for wanting to be sure that you are not a United States Citizen trying to occupy an office of the United States of America and if they catch a United States Citizen pretending to occupy an office in the United States of America they have every right to throw the book at them and they will.
- Continental Marshals are employees of the United States of America, not the United States. They work for the states and the people, but they work in the international jurisdiction under the un-delegated powers retained by the states and people. This causes a lot of confusion.
- The United States of America delegated nineteen (19) specific powers to the United States to administer in its behalf. All other powers in international jurisdiction are retained. The job of the Continental Marshals is to exercise and enforce these retained powers in behalf of the states and people.
- As a practical matter, this means that Continental Marshals are engaged in international law enforcement and operate within the Postal Districts of the United States of America. They are federal-level law enforcement officers, but they operate apart from the United States Marshals for obvious reasons.
- Just in case it is not obvious to some— United States Marshals work for the United States and exercise and enforce the delegated powers. Continental Marshals work for the states and the people to exercise and enforce the un-delegated powers.
- The jurisdiction of the Continental Marshals is therefore “whatever is NOT directly delegated” under the constitutional agreement to the United States and the United States Marshals.
- As employees of the United States of America, Continental Marshals need to be functioning as State Citizens, howbeit, in international jurisdiction. As American State Citizens in international jurisdiction, they are protected under the actual Constitution, the national trust, and the Treaties of Westminster pertaining to Americans at sea.
- Continental Marshals take their Oaths under the authority of the United States of America Post Master and work as part of the United States of America Postal District Courts.
- Continental Marshals are acting under the authority of the United States of America and are not under the authority of any one state and they are certainly not under the direction of any State Justices.
- Any other “interpretation” of these offices is incorrect and not borne out by the public records associated with them and won’t be honored by the US Government, sometimes called the De Facto Government, nor by the United States of America, sometimes called the De Jure Government.
- As regards Chief Marshal Haywood’s current dilemma: Thanks to Blue Blood Elitists known as Southern Democrats, all the freed plantation slaves were seized upon as public property following the illegal mercenary action known as the American Civil War.
- All people of color were surreptitiously claimed as property belonging the United States and a second class brand of “US citizenship” was presumed against them — “citizen of the United States” as found in the Federal Constitution’s 14th Amendment. Most Americans have since suffered the same false presumptions and commercial claims.
- The Southern Democrats representing the United States of America allowed and promoted this evil in our midst by denying the natural born state national status of black Americans and for many years they had no rights or protections at all, existing as stateless “federal citizens”.
- It took a hundred years — 1868 to 1968 — for American Negroes and other people of color to secure “Equal Civil Rights”. Equal to what? The natural and unalienable rights of the people of the United States of America.
- Chief Marshal Haywood of the Continental Marshals Service is a woman of color and she has been arrested by federal franchise employees of the “State of Georgia” under the presumption that she is not owed any natural born state national status and cannot therefore serve as an American State Citizen.
- However, in November, 2015, new Sovereign Letters Patent were issued for the United States of America and a new Declaration of Joint Sovereignty, too,
too, which allows all people of color including American Indians and African Americans to reclaim their natural born political status.
- This was done because The Emancipation Proclamation — which is a public commercial contract of the United States — was not honored by the United States of America as a result of fraud by Southern Democrats, resulting in unlawful conversion, press-ganging and enslavement of living people under the pretense of voluntary indentured servitude. The new Sovereign Letters Patent and the Declaration of Joint Sovereignty settles the issues resulting from failure to honor The Emancipation Proclamation.
- As a result, Chief Marshal Tresa Haywood, is indeed an American state national of the Georgia State and is eligible to serve as a State Citizen and as a Continental Marshal. Those unlucky State of Georgia employees who have assumed otherwise and who think they can bring charges of impersonating a public officer are in for a number of big surprises.
- The first big surprise is that a woman of color can serve as head of the Continental Marshals Service.
- The second big surprise is that she is operating under a universal indemnity bond.
- The third big surprise is that the President of the United States, Abraham Lincoln, issued The Emancipation Proclamation; there is absolutely no question that every United States Citizen and every employee of every federated State of Georgia franchise, every municipal STATE OF GEORGIA agency, and every federated County in Georgia is legally and commercially bound by it.
- The fourth big surprise is that they have been making profoundly wrong assumptions and presumptions that will cost them in precisely the same way that they have brought charges against others, committed false arrest, and accused Ms. Haywood of IM-PERSONATING a public officer.
- All the IM-PERSONATING has been done by the State of Georgia, the STATE OF GEORGIA and the federated, incorporated Counties of Georgia— all federal corporate franchises that have violated their own commercial contracts and committed personage against the American states and people.
37.Those members of the Bar Associations responsible for this are about to get a great big boot up their butts. And its long overdue.

By Anna Von Reitz
I am tired of arguing with ill-informed, well-intentioned Americans who have been lied to and deliberately confused for so many years they don’t know which end is up and can’t even read well. So I have boiled the Big Picture down to little couplets and sound bites.
Each one of these is critical to grasping both who we are and where we are in the current time.
So let’s begin:
The United States is a paid foreign subcontractor of the United States of America and always has been.
The United States provides nineteen enumerated “essential government services” for the United States of America.
United States Citizens and citizens of the United States are your employees and they are foreign employees.
The word “people” means “militia”.
The only “people” being referenced as “We, the People” in the Preamble of the Constitution are members of the victorious state militias that won the Revolutionary War. ___________________________________________________
You are born as a State National — a Virginian, Wisconsinite, New Yorker, etc. – with the option to serve as a State Citizen by accepting your duty to serve and support the county and state jural assemblies and the state militia or to serve in a public land jurisdiction office.
We, the People—State Citizens— are citizens of the United States of America. Notice the “of America” part of the name?
“We, the People” are NOT and have never been “United States Citizens” nor “citizens of the United States”.
United States Citizens are citizens of the United States, not the United States of America.
United States Citizens are not owed any of the guarantees of the Constitution. They are foreigners on our shores merely “residing” among us to provide “essential government services”, so they are not heirs of our land or our resources.
Only United States Citizens or citizens of the United States may vote in US elections.
You have been fooled into thinking that their elections are all your elections. They aren’t.
All the offices being filled and occupied —apart from those vacant public offices that are now being filled by returning American State Citizens— are private corporate offices, not public offices at all.
Your natural birthright standing as a State National was unlawfully converted when you were just a baby via a process of undisclosed and fraudulent contract with your Mother.
She was confused and induced to agree that you were a “United States Citizen”.
This created a legal presumption was then used to create a false claim against your name and estate.
To overcome this presumption you have to rebut and repudiate it in the public record via an Act of Expatriation and other appropriate paperwork extricating yourself from the clutches of the United States.
Most importantly, you must “surrender” the US PERSON by signing over an authenticated Birth Certificate to the Secretary of the Treasury, appointing him your Fiduciary using an IRS Form 56, and directing him to convert the US ACCOUNT to the United States of America U.S. Treasury, without recourse.
That action proves beyond any doubt that you are not consenting and not desiring to act as a United States Citizen nor as a citizen of the United States. At the same time, you must establish a Private Registered Indemnity Bond, which you issue to cover your rump from any claims— past, present, or future— related to this ACCOUNT.
Recent reaction against this crime and fraud against the people of the United States of America has resulted in rallying international outrage against the United States, and much effort in the international jurisdiction to bring an end to the practices that have been used by the United States to press-gang and enslave Americans via undisclosed and purposefully deceitful adhesion contracts.
These are international crimes being carried out by employees against their employers.
The perpetrators of these crimes have been at it since 1860.
They have tried to claim that they are engaged in a perpetual war against the United States of America and therefore justified in practicing genocide on paper.
Recent research has revealed that the American Civil War was not a war, but an illegal mercenary action carried out on our shores. There is no Declaration of War by a land jurisdiction Congress. There is no actual Peace Treaty ending any such “war”.
Additional research has shown that the United States has attempted to overthrow the United States of America via the deliberate use of fraudulent grammar, deceptively similar names, and purposefully deceptive bookkeeping practices.
By literally using two sets of books and not disclosing large income streams by segregating them as “non-budgeted funds” and other improper bookkeeping conventions, the United States has amassed huge fortunes in public employee pension funds which are then used to invest in and control major sectors of the economy.
They have also accumulated a bogus “National Debt” of over $20 trillion dollars.
They have accumulated this debt in preparation for declaring the United States bankrupt.
They have named their United States Citizens and citizens of the United States and their State of State franchises as the sureties for the parent corporation’s debts—- intending to saddle the mischaracterized and misidentified American people with their own odious debts now, just as they did in the 1930’s.
Only this time, we caught them and have openly repudiated the odious debt.
This past week the US State Department and Department of Commerce were informed of certain mathematically inescapable facts. They and other departments and agency subcontractors have to account for the National Credit that is “missing” and which has not been applied to the so-called National Debt.
Oddly enough, and counter-intuitively, the Internal Revenue Service is our best friend.
The vermin responsible for this circumstance, primarily members of the American Bar Association, have sucked up trillions of dollars-worth of our National Credit and assets owed to Americans and have not paid a dime in income tax.
Everyone who has lost a home through foreclosure, everyone who has been victimized by court cases brought against US PERSONS, needs to claim the mortgage accounts and the case numbers via issuance of an IRS Form 1099A and report the courts, the judges, and the attorneys involved to the Internal Revenue Service Criminal Investigations Division.
They will gladly extract the taxes from the criminals and boot them off the bench.
The states that are members of the United States of America union are all land jurisdiction states with actual land and actual borders. They operate under names like this: Wisconsin State, California State, and Nebraska State.
The “States of States”, such as the State of Wisconsin and State of California and State of Nebraska are all run by the United States as “Territorial States” that are franchises of the United States of America (Minor)—a union of 57 inchoate “states” including the fifty franchises, the insular states, and the State of New Columbia— aka, District of Columbia.
The “STATES OF STATES” such as the STATE OF WISCONSIN and STATE OF CALIFORNIA and STATE OF NEBRASKA are all run as “Municipal States” that are franchises of the DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA MUNICIPAL CORPORATION.
The State and State of States Legislatures typically wear two hats.
When these elected bodies enact legislation pertaining to the actual land jurisdiction states, the results are Session Laws. These are Public Laws. They are not copyrighted. They appear with names like, “Louisiana State Session Laws”.
When these bodies switch hats, they enact legislation pertaining to the inchoate “State of State” and its employees, and the results are State Statutes. These are Private Laws. They are copyrighted and appear with names like “State of Alaska Statutes”.
This is possible because the United States allows for Dual Citizenship and lets its citizens hold both United States Citizenship and their native State Citizenship at the same time.
However, the actual States do not allow Dual Citizenship. You must choose and clearly declare your political status as a State Citizen in order to claim any valid granted authority related to the actual states and the United States of America.
This leads to the fact that there are a few actual State Citizens elected to serve in the various State of State Legislatures and in the Congress, too, who are the only ones able to elect, vote, enact, enroll, or appropriate funds in behalf of the actual states and the United States of America—-but they have been elected by United States Citizens.
No members of the Bar can participate in this elite mini-State Legislature and mini-Congress, whose members are often only a dozen or so in the House of Representatives, and less than that in the United States Senate.
It is upon the votes and honor of these very few men and women that the validity of the Session Laws and the Enrolled Acts of the States in Congress Assembled depend.
Because there are so few of them, it is impossible to conduct business that requires a majority of the states to participate.
They cannot even establish the quorum necessary to recall and reseat a land jurisdiction Continental Congress. Thus the actual Congress we are owed remains adjourned.
The character of the “laws” being passed, either public or private, and the outcome of all the legislation depends on the undisclosed political status of those being elected to office.
If you elect “United States Citizens” the bulk of what gets done favors the United States and results in statutory law.
If you elect State Citizens, the bulk of what gets done favors the United States of America and results in Public Law.
Since we are kept studiously ignorant and the political status of the candidates is not advertised, we cannot make a valid choice.
This silence is self-interested on both sides.
The United States is benefited by having United States Citizens elected to office, because they then appropriate funds and take other actions beneficial for the United States.
The United States of America consolidates power in just a few individuals and is therefore enabled to more readily control them.
Since United States Citizens can only produce statutory law and State Citizens can only produce Public Law, both activities go on in tandem within the halls of what appears to be one “State” Legislature and one “United States” Congress.
By presuming that all Americans are Dual Citizens the United States ups its portion of the legislatures and the Congress, because this legal presumption requires determined action and rebuttal by individuals who know who they are and know what their proper political status is.
You have to actively reclaim your birth right political status. You have to knowingly choose to create and participate in your county and state jural assemblies and to join your state militia.
This leads to only the “cream of the crop” of knowledgeable and studious Americans wielding the real power of the United States of America and enjoying the wealth of our nation.
It also leads to the situation so aptly described by the Prophet Amos, “My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge.”
Between the Blue-Blood Elitists who have betrayed the overall Public Good to feather their own nests and increase their own power, and the Renegade Employees on the other, the American people have been driven pillar to post, rightfully confused, dimly aware that something awful is going on and not able to account for it, not able to identify rank and file American State Citizens to elect to office and not even aware that there is a need to do so.
The land jurisdiction states still exist. The American People still exist. But our state offices are largely standing vacant because of the ignorance that pervades every corner of our nation. Our state militias have been stupidly given over to the control of State of State franchise Governors who are employees of the foreign United States, and who are predominately United States Citizens instead of State Citizens.
This ignorance and apathy and lack of open declaration of political status must end.
Though considered a private matter, political status is the ultimate determining factor in our elections, the quality of our representation, the honoring of our contracts, the protection of our rights, and the recognition of our standing in our own courts.
If you want to take America back, you have to start by reclaiming your own political status as an American State National—-firmly rebutting and expatriating from and surrendering the US PERSON(S) that identify you as a “United States Citizen”.
Then you have to take the next step, and become an American State Citizen by serving as a member of your county and state jural assemblies and either creating or joining the actual state militia operated by American State Citizens—- the People at last.
In this way, or by serving in an elected or appointed public State office, you can finally restore your political status and become one of “We, the People”.
- Get your own affairs in order and repudiate any claim that you are a “United States Citizen”. Record your objection in public forums and records.
- Next, join the National Assembly Training Call, Thursday Evenings, at nine p.m. Eastern Standard Time, 1-712-770-4170, Access Code 226823#.
- Set up your own county jural assembly.
- Establish a protocol for people to renounce “United States Citizen” status and a County Recorder’s Office to record their Acts of Expatriation and surrender of US PERSONS.
- Conduct and run your own elections to fill the vacant public offices including the members of your unincorporated Common Law County Court: land jurisdiction Sheriff, Justices of the Peace, Clerks, Bailiff, Coroners, Recorders.
- Set up means to identify the State Citizens.
- Organize your states.
- Organize your state militias.
- Give Notice to the United States — and to the rest of the world. Let everyone know that the Americans are home again.

THE TIM COMMENTS
Snarky sarcasm aside, one of the most concise articles I have read by Anna. I especially appreciated the notification regarding the weekly National Assembly Training call and wonder why I haven’t come across this before. I may not be the brightest kid on the block, but I have been aware that there was something very wrong for a very long time and have tried my best to sort it out. The trouble is that I rely too heavily on the internet, rather than finding the actual documents and reading them. I think this is what catches most people up, as any google search will reveal, the majority of sites are firmly planted contrary to these ideas and theories and do a fair job of convincing others that those of us who are trying to get to the bottom of this are somehow off our rockers. It doesn’t help that many of us have been abused and/or mistreated to such a degree that our manners of speaking to them often sound rather brash and even rude. It is hard not to become frustrated after spending 20 minutes trying to explain the story to someone and at the end they still don’t seem to grasp it. I had one person say, “Well, if we are all in the same boat, then what difference does it make anyway?” and I just stared back in amazement. What the hell has happened to the minds of my countrymen? We must clear the cobwebs of generational apathy and ignorance, but I have no real notion as to how this is best done, and I fear that until 51% of the country has roused from their apathy, stirred into action, and inspired to a greatness most have come to believe belongs only to fable and lore, the rest of us will be peddling like hell to get this thing to the top of the hill, all the while being subverted by globalist patsies.

Author’s note: below are several questions that must be answered logically if we are to survive as a free country. These questions will not lead you to a comfort zone. If you want to attack the messenger and discard the message, your mind is neither rational nor logical, but is most likely driven by emotional attachment to a deity called government.
- If the US military, over the past 15 years, has truly been fighting for our freedoms, expending large amounts of blood and treasure, why do we now have far fewer individual freedoms than when we began these “perpetual wars for peace?”
- Trillions of dollars have been spent, allegedly to protect our freedoms, yet we have fewer freedoms than before. Who has profited monetarily from what must be called an effort in futility?
- If it is true that “we must fight them over there so we don’t have to fight them over here,” why are our borders left unprotected and we are allowing hundreds of thousands of military-aged men from the countries where our military is or has been engaged to “immigrate” into our country?
- If you knew a man who left his home and family to travels thousands of miles from that home to engage an enemy but left the doors to his home unlocked, his family unarmed, and unfettered access to his loved ones by those who sought to harm or kill them, on what level would you rate his intelligence?
- If you found this man’s logic and reasoning to be flawed, why would you praise and support a government that did the same thing?
- Very few of our members of legislatures, both state and federal, vote constitutionally more than half the time. Therefore, many of the laws we live under are unconstitutional. Why then would you call members of the government entity that enforces these unconstitutional laws, “heroes?”
- Why, also, would you ask these same legislators to repeal and replace an unconstitutional law with another unconstitutional law? (ACA comes immediately to mind.)
- When, not if, an unconstitutional law is passed banning the ownership and possession of the means to protect ourselves and our families, who will come to enforce those unlawful, tyrannical edicts? Will you call them heroes, then?
- Who enforces those unconstitutional, anti-Second Amendment laws where they presently exist in our country?
- Will it be any different where you live?
- Where in the Second Amendment can be found the provision that one must participate in government mandated training to exercise that Creator granted right?
- Where in the Second Amendment can be found the provision that one must pay a fee to the government in order to exercise that Creator granted right?
- Why is there a large marble monument in this country’s capital which honors a man who destroyed the tenets of the “consent of the governed” provision in our Declaration of Independence, killed hundreds of thousands to create a strong central government, destroyed state’s rights, established the first income tax and created the Internal Revenue Service which are all destructive of our Creator granted rights?
- If churches in this country are subject to the payment of taxes, can there ever be a true separation of church and state?
- Could this (payment of taxes) be the reason so many churches today preach loyalty to Caesar above loyalty to, and observance of, our inalienable rights?
- If the powers within our government used “Operation Paperclip” to staff the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) with former Nazi SS leaders at its beginning in 1947, should we be surprised today that the CIA is acting just like the Gestapo did in Germany in the 1930’s and 1940’s?
- The Standards Committee of the Confederate Congress said this when designating the St. Andrew’s Cross as the Confederate Battle Flag, “This flag should be a token of the humble acknowledgment of God and be a public testimony to the world that our trust is in the Lord our God.” Is the banning of this flag by many in this country an attack on alleged “racism” or a surreptitious attack on Christianity?
- Are there any other attacks on the Christian faith that have occurred during the past 50 years by those who oppose our Creator granted inalienable rights?
- When it comes to the health, safety, and welfare of all American citizens, which should be considered most important; the people themselves, regardless of age or the ability to secure those rights or the monetary bottom line of the businesses who claim to supply them?
- What is more important to you, the individual, inalienable rights of your children and grandchildren or the worship of the deity called government in regards to all of that government’s rules, regulations and laws which are in direct conflict with our Creator granted rights?
IN RIGHTFUL REBEL LIBERTY
No one writes satire like the king of curmudgeons! If I had Mike’s mind the internet would burn down from my sarcasm. But that would only be a smidgeon of what the people you call your representatives deserve. And for you unfortunate masses who worship your masters, get a life!
