NOTE:  The reader may wonder why we continue to focus on the IRS.  The following open letter to Treasury Secretary Mnuchin provides a detailed explanation.  Due to a total and frustrating lack of interest, we have abandoned our attempts to work towards abolishing the IRS.  We have decided instead to help people fight the IRS with powerful tools that we have successfully used to defeat them.  (See the last paragraph.)

 June 19, 2017
Mr. Steven Mnuchin, Secretary
Department of the Treasury
1500 Pennsylvania Ave., NW
Washington, DC  20220

 Dear Secretary Mnuchin:

We are in receipt of a recent letter from the IRS regarding our taxes for Calendar-Year 2017, wherein your IRS agent, one Rodney D. Lewis of the Kansas City, MO IRS office, says we owe just shy of $1,000 for 2017.  We find that quite interesting in that the taxes for Calendar-Year 2017 would not be due to be reported and paid until April 15, 2018, eleven months from now.  We responded in writing to IRS Agent Lewis, stating that there was no way we could owe taxes for said uncompleted calendar year and admonished him for his gross negligence and stupidity and accused him of intentional harassment.  We also asked for a sincere apology.  We doubt seriously if we will ever hear from Agent Lewis again, since the IRS hardly ever responds to our lawful communications.

TAX FRAUD

We further stated to Agent Lewis that: The IRS is grossly incompetent and frankly, we grow weary and irritated by the constant barrage of 45-day, 60-day and 90-day letters from the IRS, from multiple IRS Offices, that are never answered and letters stating that taxes are due when they are not due.  As a testament to that incompetence, a few months ago we received an IRS Demand Notice for over $12,000 that the IRS says we owe for Calendar-Year 2015, except that the Demand Notice was addressed to a person in California, not us.  Nevertheless, the IRS letter said we owed it.  It is a criminal act for the IRS to send us a Notice for another taxpayer, containing their name, address and social security number.  If we were dishonest we could use that information for unlawful purposes.  In fact, the IRS Agent that sent that Demand Notice to us, violated 26 USC Section 6103 for releasing confidential taxpayer information to an unauthorized third party.  Such a violation of Section 6103 is a felony and is punishable by a fine up to $5,000 and imprisonment of not more than five (5) years, or both.  (26 USC Section 7213)  Will this IRS Agent be punished for her crime …..  probably not?  But if we did it, we could end up in jail.

Yesterday, we received a letter from IRS Austin, TX.  They stated that they received our letter of March 29, 2017 and had forwarded it to IRS Ogden for disposition.  (We have never written to IRS Austin.  How they received our March 29th correspondence is a mystery.)  One day later we received another letter from IRS Austin where they said they had received our letter of March 29th but needed another 60 days to do research before they responded. The subject matter of both letters was the same, but the responses were diametrically opposed to each other. That’s nuts!

We have also received a demand for payment from the IRS for an amount that had already been collected. That’s fraud!

In addition to the IRS harassment we have described above, we have a claim filed with the Secretary of the Treasury for over $10,000 that was illegally seized from us by the IRS.  Our legal arguments for such illegal seizure are unimpeachable. Being that the IRS never gives up any money it has seized illegally, we’ll probably never see a dime of it, or the IRS will force us to go to court to collect it.

And these are just a few examples of the BS, we and millions of other Americans are forced to endure at the hands of the IRS. This is insane Secretary Mnuchin. Lawful Americans shouldn’t have to put up with this crap.

Yes, we have defeated the IRS at least five times but at great time and expense on our part.  Unfortunately, that any American would receive letters from the IRS requesting taxes for a year that has not even ended yet, or for another person, or for an IRS mistake, is not news. It happens every day by the tens of thousands of events. The tax amounts demanded can be significant, but the millions of mistakes represent just how inept and corrupt the IRS has become. That such intimidating mistaken letters are sent to free, sovereign American citizens in the first place is a testament to the collapse of Constitutional liberties. 

The American tax code of over 73,000 of pages and tens of thousands of rules and regulations is an abomination and only a tyrannical government could come up with such a system.  It is not only designed to intimidate, harass and entrap the taxpayer, it is designed to enslave the taxpayer as well.

Intimidation and entrapment come in the form of the complicated, complex and often-conflicting tax regulations and forms that the IRS changes every year, while expecting the average American taxpayer to accurately comply.  Harassment comes in the form of a barrage of letters demanding something, or accusing the taxpayer of some nebulous violation of the tax code and threatening seizure of private assets when no violations occurred.  Enslavement comes in the form of forcing the taxpayer to consult high-paid tax experts to fill out the damn forms, or face penalties, fines and even imprisonment if they don’t get it right.  And what is even worse, if you ask three IRS agents a tax question, you will get three different answers and it is quite possible that all three IRS answers will be wrong.

You, or any other IRS agent, tax preparer, accountant, CPA, or tax attorney, much less the IRS Commissioner, cannot provide the answer to one simple question:

Provide proof on how the taxpayer can file an income tax return and by some stroke of blind luck not commit perjury when the taxpayer does not understand all the tens of thousands of tax laws and has no way to know if the taxpayer’s tax return is true or correct, even if a tax professional prepared it for the taxpayer.  Therefore, the taxpayer would be committing perjury to sign the tax return perjury statement when the taxpayer does not understand all of the constantly changing tax laws contained in the IRS Tax Code, nor could the taxpayer ever understand them in the taxpayer’s lifetime.

The tax code is a shameless, unconstitutional, racketeering tax scheme perpetrated on the American people by the U. S. Government, to manipulate the masses for social and environmental engineering and to re-distribute the wealth of this country.  It represents government’s insidious, never-ending, unconstitutional attempts to buy votes from the less fortunate among us, or protected classes, on the backs of the producers and achievers in America.  It has nothing to do with fairness or equity.  The taxing system is all about POWER, CONTROL and the BUYING OF VOTES to remain in perpetual power, as the Democrats have done for the last 100 years!  2016 and Trump are an anomaly and will be undone by the Democrats and the Deep State.  It was the Democrats that gave us the 16th Amendment, the Federal Reserve and the IRS and they cheated to get it ratified.

We are not so naïve as to believe that you care one whit about what we have to say, nor do we expect you to do anything about the tax code, or what it costs tens of millions of taxpayers in time, money, anger and frustration.  Nor do we expect you to intervene with the IRS on our behalf.

You have the American people exactly where you want them; scared, compliant, obedient and shivering and trembling like little puppies.  We can attest to this by the fact that the response to our attempts to abolish the IRS with a new website fell on deaf ears, in a nation where the average citizen lives in abject fear of the IRS. 

But please understand, you can only squeeze a tomato so hard, before it suddenly squishes out between your fingers.  This admonition is not to be construed as a threat to you personally, or the government in general.  It is only a prediction of things to come in America if the government continues on the path it now treads.  Millions of Americans still actually believe in freedom and liberty and the pursuit of happiness, without government interference and we reject enslavement of any kind, even tax code enslavement.

It is very unlikely that you care?  But then why should you?  The previous Secretary of the Treasury, Jack Lew, manipulated the tax law so that he would owe no taxes after receiving huge salaries and bonuses.  Former Senator Tom Daschle didn’t pay his taxes and get caught when he was nominated for HUD secretary and had to withdraw his name.  It has been reported that tens of thousands of federal employees, including IRS employees, owe as much as $3.5 Billion in back taxes to the IRS and are given a pass, while the IRS’s foot is on the throats of lawful Americans demanding absolute compliance ….. or else!  The IRS loses billions to fraud every year that it never catches.  That’s our money you are wasting Treasury Secretary Mnuchin and the buck stops on your desk.  Why haven’t you stopped it?

Good God, where’s the outrage?  One hundred years ago this tyrannical overreach by government would have caused a revolution.

The government and the IRS are hopelessly out of control and you and your predecessors are co-conspirators.  The IRS tax code, which you oversee, is just another chain around the necks of once-free Americans who now must capitulate to the ever-tightening noose of dictatorial control by a corrupt government with an insatiable appetite for our money.

But then I doubt seriously if you will ever see this letter.  You must have more important things to do than responding to a disgruntled taxpayer, you know, like writing more tax code, or bailing out your friends at Goldman Sachs, or the Federal Reserve, or covering up for your corrupt friends in the government.

What a poor excuse for a free nation America has become.  We might just as well be another banana republic, run by an anachronism of an elite, rich-old-men, oligarchy.  You are but an integral, willing partner in that oligarchy.  It means nothing that you are a Republican.

Olddogs Comments!

Dear Ron,

Anna Von Reitz has all the information you need to put the IRS to bed PERMANENTLY, but you are too stubborn to spend the time needed to learn how. The fact that the majority of Americans are scared to death of these thieving tyrants should tell you there is no sympathy among the people because they are too stupid to understand the difference between tyranny and justice, and too chicken-shit to complain. That is not the case with you! You have the balls and the brains to put these bastards to bed if you would stop playing ball with their bat. Use Anna’s years of research and tell those thieving bastards to go straight to hell.

Best to ya friend!

Peak Economic Delusion Signals Coming Crisis

June 20th, 2017 by

http://www.alt-market.com/articles/3210-peak-economic-delusion-signals-coming-crisis

Economic DelusionBy Brandon Smith

In my article ‘The Trump Collapse Scapegoat Narrative Has Now Been Launched‘, I discussed the ongoing and highly obvious plan by globalists and international financiers to pull the plug on their fiat support for stock markets and portions of the general economy while blaming the Trump Administration (and the conservative ideal) for the subsequent crash. Numerous economic shocks and negative data which had been simmering for years before the 2016 elections are rising to the surface of the normally oblivious mainstream. This recently culminated in a surprise stock dive that stunned investors; investors that have grown used to the Dow moving perpetually upward, while the economic media immediately began connecting the entire event to Trump and the “Comey memos”, which likely do not exist.

My position according to Trump’s behavior and cabinet selection is that he is aware of this agenda and is playing along. That said, there is another important issue to consider – the participation of the ignorant in helping the Ponzi con-game continue.

There is a famous investor’s anecdote from Joe Kennedy, the father of John F. Kennedy, about the onset of the Great Depression – he relates that one day, just before the crash of 1929, a shoe shine boy tried to give him stock tips. He realized at that moment that when the shoe shiner is offering market tips the market is too popular for its own good. He cashed out of the market and avoided the crash that many people now wrongly assume was the “cause” of the Great Depression.

I don’t know that this story is true, but if it is, it is an interesting example of peak economic delusion. We do not have quite the same investment environment as existed in those days. Today, algorithmic computers dominate the functions of the stock market, chasing headlines and each other, but this does not and will not save the economy from another depression. In fact, all they have done along with substantial aid from central banks is artificially elevate equities while every other fiscal indicator implodes.

But this farce in stocks could not succeed for so many years without help. I would say the real “shoe shine boys” of our era are actually the dullards in the mainstream financial media, stabbing in the dark and desperate to believe that the astonishing “recovery” since 2009 is real.

This attitude is evident in a recent article published by Bloomberg titled ‘Prophets Of Doom With Too Much Gloom’. The piece focuses not on alternative analysts like myself which are usually targeted with the mentally lazy “doom and gloom” label by the MSM. Rather, the targets are “big names” in the investment world who now finally agree with what alternative analysts have been saying for some time. Names like Bill Gross and Paul Singer.

Bloomberg laments the sudden tide of negative predictions for their beloved Dow Jones and other exchanges from people who have the ear of the larger mainstream. Instead of considering their warnings and looking at the available evidence, Bloomberg instead decides to craft a conspiracy theory in which bond traders and hedge fund managers like Gross and Singer feel jilted by the unnatural rise in stocks and now scheme to lure investors away from the infinite fountain of wealth. Yes, that’s right, Bloomberg accuses Gross and Singer of “stock envy”.

I say, Bloomberg is a modern day shoe shine boy.

Some might argue that Bloomberg is perfectly cognizant of the fact that the economy is in severe decline and that they are helping their central banker buddies keep the public in the dark through misinformation. While this may be true for Bloomberg himself and media elites like him, I think the average analyst at Bloomberg news is just as ignorant of the fiscal situation as most people. I think they are legitimately biased and will conjure whatever story they need to help them and others believe that the system is in ascendance rather than decline.

For those of us who were analysts before the derivatives crash of 2008, this mindset is nothing new. I remember the complete arrogance present in the mainstream just before the implosion; the sneering and attacks that were used in an attempt to silence anyone with the guts to openly suggest the fundamentals and the data did not support the investment exuberance. I remember many people asserting that that the economy’s progress was unstoppable, that another crash like 1929 was impossible, that the real estate market was an invincible engine. They were all wrong, yet, they were so confident. Most of these same people still work in the financial press to this day. Imagine that…

I would prefer to point to the hard data on hand than mere mainstream opinion. Maybe I’m a little paranoid, but I’ve already seen mainstream analysts fail on numerous occasions.

First, consider the fact that the Federal Reserve, the key component along with other central banks around the world in the rise of stock markets, is now cutting off the flow of easy money through continued interest rate hikes. I predicted this move back in 2015 when almost everyone said the Fed would go to negative rates instead. Without no-cost Fed money to feed the machine, stock markets have essentially stalled, and now, there is talk of a “tech dump” on the horizon.  With the vast majority of gains in equities the past year attributed to only five major companies, all of them tech oriented, this would be a disaster for stocks.

This is a considerable shift away from the last few years, in which it was expected by many that markets would expand exponentially for the foreseeable future. Now that the Fed’s quantitative easing and near-zero interest rates have been removed as fuel, the true economic picture is becoming clear, even to the mainstream.

According to the Atlanta Fed, US GDP in the first quarter of 2017 has declined to 0.7% , going back to lows touched on in 2014 after the Fed reduced QE.

The US has lost 5 million manufacturing jobs since the year 2000, and this trend has accelerated in recent years. Manufacturing in the US only accounts for 8.48% of all jobs according to May statistics.

102 million working age Americans do not currently have a job. This includes the 95 million Americans not counted by the Bureau of Labor because they assume these people have been unemployed so long they “do not want to work”.

Thousands of retail outlet stores, the primary engine of the American economy, are set to close in 2017.  Sweeping bankruptcies and downsizing are ravaging the retail sector, and internet retailers are not taking up the slack despite highly publicized growth.  In 2016, online retail sales only accounted for 8.1% of all retail sales.

Oil inventories continue to amass as US energy demand declines. Declining energy demand is a sure sign of overall economic decline. OPEC and other entities continue to argue that “too much supply” is the issue; an attempt to distract away from the reality of lower consumption and the falling wealth of consumers.

Corporate earnings expectations continue their dismal path, suggesting that stock markets have been supported by central bank stimulus and blind investor faith in central bank intervention. The stimulus is now being cut off. How long before investor faith is finally lost?

Economic Delusion

These are only a few of the MANY data points that paint a very ugly picture for the US economy. The rest of the world is just as tenuous if not worse.

This is why when I hear the phrase “doom and gloom” I have to laugh and think of the shoe shine boys. These are people with limited experience in tracking the economy, or very short memories, or both. This is also the product of a vast misconception about economic crisis or collapse – the assumption that crisis and collapse are “events”, that they happen suddenly and without warning. If the nation does not look like a television zombie drama tomorrow, there must not be a collapse. In truth, economic collapse NEVER happens without warning, because as I have said ten thousand times and will say ten thousand times more, collapse is a process, not an event. The data points above show an economy that is in severe deterioration, not recovery. Stock markets are next, not that stock markets matter much in the grand scheme of things.

It is unfortunate that so many people only track stocks when accounting for economic health. They have crippled themselves and their own observations, and actually condescend when confronted with counter-observations and data. They help globalists and international financiers by perpetuating false narratives; sometimes knowingly but often unconsciously. And, when the system does destabilize to the point that they actually realize it, they will blame all the wrong culprits for their pain and suffering.

The question is not “when” we will enter collapse; we are already in the midst of an economic collapse. The real question is, when will the uneducated and the biased finally notice? I suspect the only thing that will shock them out of their stupor will be a swift stock market drop, since this is the only factor they seem to pay attention to. This will happen soon enough. In the meantime, anyone who discusses legitimate data and warns of the dangers to come is a “doom and gloomer”. Mark my words, one day this label will be considered a badge of honor.

After 8 long years of ultra-loose monetary policy from the Federal Reserve, it’s no secret that inflation is primed to soar. If your IRA or 401(k) is exposed to this threat, it’s critical to act now!

The thing that breaks my heart, is knowing how many millions of my fellow working class Americans have no nest egg, or any plan of action to make it through what is sure to happen soon. True, it is partly their own fault, but given the faith they have had in their so called leaders, I fear that many will make the wrong decision out of sheer panic and give the uncaring police and military  the excuse to mow them down like dogs. Ladies and gentlemen there is going to be wailing and gashing of teeth in America as the Bankers destroy each nations survival instinct and gather the rest into herds like the sheep they are. They have always known the only way to gain absolute control of Mother Earth is to totally destroy our willingness and ability to fight back. The coming complete destruction of freedom will make black slavery look like heaven on earth.  The great depression was a picnic compared to what is coming.

Title, Lien, and Bond

By Anna Von Reitz

Go to my website, www.annavonreitz.com, #560, #607, #620 and those three articles lay out the entire process both for your personal redemption and your land protection.

Please note that anyone can do the Corrected Deed process.

Anyone can claim protection for their land under the Private Registered Indemnity Bond for their state of the union.

The Corrected Deed process can be done right now, whether or not you have completed the process to free yourself from citizenship presumptions, because the indemnity is for your state of the union.

Later, when you get your own political status cleaned up and you are officially “back on the land” you can use the Private Registered Indemnity Bond as I described for Lucretia.

For people who are actually federal civilian employees, people of color, political asylum seekers, federal welfare benefit recipients— things are not so clear— but it appears to me that you can exercise the same protections via claim upon “Equal Civil Rights” provisions if you are challenged.

This same process is now engaged in other countries and I am getting desperate calls and emails from people who are facing similar claims and demands worldwide. Obviously, the Private Registered Indemnity Bond established for the states does not apply worldwide, but the Payment Bond presented to the Holy See via the Vatican Chancery Court (Bank) does.

Anyone who is willing to live under the Law of Heaven — keep the peace, treat others as you would be treated, and respect the free will of others so long as they don’t harm anyone or anything else—-can claim the protection of the Payment Bond, AMRI00003 RA393427653US on file with the Vatican Chancery Court.

Please note that there is a “Declaration of Law” involved in making a claim under the Universal Payment Bond. In declaring yourself subject to these three Laws of Heaven you are committing yourself to obey them and setting yourself free from all other obligations. The Law of Heaven is universal, applicable globally, in all places, at all times.

So, if you are a violent gangster pursuing a life of crime and are only repenting in order to get your tail out of a bind, think twice. If you are not pure in your intention, your action will be counted against you—- and as there are no secrets, your intentions will be known.

There is help available to all on Earth, but only those who submit to the Law of Heaven can access it in good conscience and without a good conscience and good will to fulfill the Universal Law, the benefit received will still weigh against you.

It is essential that everyone learn the importance of regaining your title, making your lien, and accessing your bond.

The “title” to you, is YOUR Birth Certificate. This is where they split the title to the entity they created as an ESTATE trust and named after you, leaving the STATE OF_________ as the “presumed” equitable title holder, and you as the legal title holder. When you bring YOUR BC and turn it back to the Secretary of the Treasury, you are announcing your “return” to living status so far as the Municipal United States and its bankruptcy trustees are concerned, and making him your Fiduciary obligates him to settle the accounts. That title is then complete, both halves united and returned.

The “lien” is accomplished using a UCC-1 Financing Statement to file a Non-UCC Claim (Box 6) against the NAMES and the organizations spun off the names. For example, the debtors “JOHN MICHAEL DOE, BANKRUPT CITIZENSHIP ORGANIZATION” and “JOHN M. DOE, BANKRUPT PUBLIC TRANSMITTING UTILITY ORGANIZATION” are subject to lien by Doe, John Michael.

The bond has been set up for your individual state of the union where you were born and you can claim protection under the existing Private Registered Indemnity Bond for your state or you can set up a bond of your own.

You now have actually completed title, lien, and bond to control your life estate. The final step is to record your actions in the land jurisdiction. You do this via a simple Deed of Reconveyance removing your Name and NAMES and all variations thereof to the land and soil of your birth — for example, North Carolina. Your Name can then no longer be “presumed” to be a Foreign Situs Trust and none of your NAMES (or property attached to those names) can be attached as property belonging to any municipal franchise.

This Year Is Going To Be The Worst Retail Apocalypse In U S History

June 17th, 2017 by

http://alt-market.com/articles/3209-2017-is-going-to-be-the-worst-retail-apocalypse-in-us-history

RETAIL COLLASPEThis article was written by Michael Snyder and originally published at The Economic Collapse

Not even during the worst parts of the last recession did things ever get this bad for the U.S. retail industry.  As you will see in this article, more than 300 retailers have already filed for bankruptcy in 2017, and it is being projected that a staggering 8,640 stores will close in America by the end of this calendar year.  That would shatter the old record by more than 20 percent.  Sadly, our ongoing retail apocalypse appears to only be in the early chapters.  One report recently estimated that up to 25 percent of all shopping malls in the country could shut down by 2022 due to the current woes of the retail industry.  And if the new financial crisis that is already hitting Europe starts spreading over here, the numbers that I just shared with you could ultimately turn out to be a whole lot worse.

I knew that a lot of retailers were filing for bankruptcy, but I had no idea that the grand total for this year was already in the hundreds.  According to CNN, the number of retail bankruptcies is now up 31 percent compared to the same time period last year…

Bankruptcies continue to pile up in the retail industry.

More than 300 retailers have filed for bankruptcy so far this year, according to data from BankruptcyData.com. That’s up 31% from the same time last year. Most of those filings were for small companies — the proverbial Mom & Pop store with a single location. But there are also plenty of household names on the list.

Yes, the growth of online retailers such as Amazon is fueling some of this, but the Internet has been around for several decades now.

So why are retail store closings and retail bankruptcies surging so dramatically all of a sudden?

Just a few days ago, another major victim of the retail apocalypse made headlines all over the nation when it filed for bankruptcy.  At one time Gymboree was absolutely thriving, but now it is in a desperate fight to survive

Children’s clothing chain Gymboree has filed for bankruptcy protection, aiming to slash its debts and close hundreds of stores amid crushing pressure on retailers.

Gymboree said it plans to remain in business but will close 375 to 450 of its 1,281 stores in filing for a Chapter 11 bankruptcy reorganization. Gymboree employs more than 11,000 people, including 10,500 hourly workers.

And in recent weeks other major retailers that were once very prosperous have also been forced to close stores and lay off staff

This hemorrhaging of retail jobs comes on the heels of last week’s mass layoffs at Hudson Bay Company, where employees from Saks Fifth Avenue and Lord & Taylor were among the 2,000 people laid off. The news of HBC layoffs came on the same day that Ascena, the parent company of brands like Ann Taylor, Lane Bryant, and Dress Barn, told investors it will be closing up to 650 stores (although it did not specify which brands will be affected just yet). Only two weeks ago, affordable luxury brand Michael Kors announced it too would close 125 stores to combat brand overexposure and plummeting sales.

In a lot of ways this reminds me of 2007.  The stock market was still performing very well, but the real economy was starting to come apart at the seams.

And without a doubt, the real economy is really hurting right now.  According to Business Insider, Moody’s is warning that 22 more major retailers may be forced to declare bankruptcy in the very near future…

Twenty-two retailers in Moody’s portfolio are in serious financial trouble that could lead to bankruptcy, according to a Moody’s note published on Wednesday. That’s 16% of the 148 companies in the financial firm’s retail group — eclipsing the level of seriously distressed retail companies that Moody’s reported during the Great Recession.

You can find the full list right here.  If this many major retailers are “distressed” now, what are things going to look like once the financial markets start crashing?

As thousands of stores close down all across the United States, this is going to put an incredible amount of stress on shopping mall owners.  In order to meet their financial obligations, those mall owners need tenants, but now the number of potential tenants is shrinking rapidly.

I have talked about dead malls before, but apparently what we have seen so far is nothing compared to what is coming.  The following comes from CNN

Store closings and even dead malls are nothing new, but things might be about to get a whole lot worse.

Between 20% and 25% of American malls will close within five years, according to a new report out this week from Credit Suisse. That kind of plunge would be unprecedented in the nation’s history.

I can’t even imagine what this country is going to look like if a quarter of our shopping malls shut down within the next five years.  Already, there are some parts of the U.S. that look like a third world nation.

And what is this going to do to employment?  Today, the retail industry employs millions upon millions of Americans, and those jobs could start disappearing very rapidly

The retail sales associate is one of the most popular jobs in the country, with roughly 4.5 million Americans filling the occupation. In May, the US Bureau of Labor Statistics released data that found that 7.5 million retail jobs might be replaced by technology. The World Economic Forum predicts 30 to 50 percent of retail jobs will be gone once struggling companies like Gymboree fully hop on the digital train. MarketWatch found that over the last year, the department store space bled 29,900 jobs, while general merchandising stores cut 15,700 positions. At this rate, one Florida columnist put it soberingly, “Half of all US retail jobs could vanish. Just as ATMs replaced many bank tellers, automated check-out stations are supplanting retail clerks.”

At this moment, the number of working age Americans that do not have a job is hovering near a record high.  So being able to at least get a job in the retail industry has been a real lifeline for many Americans, and now that lifeline may be in grave danger.

For those running our big corporations, losing these kinds of jobs is not a big deal.  In fact, many corporate executives would be quite happy to replace all of their U.S. employees with technology or with foreign workers.

But if the middle class is going to survive, we need an economy that produces good paying jobs.  Unfortunately, even poor paying retail jobs are starting to disappear now, and the future of the middle class is looking bleaker than it ever has before.

HOW TO DESTROY AMERICA

June 16th, 2017 by

This speech was in 2003 but applies even more so today.

This is very frightening but you can see it coming.  I especially believe the 1984 excerpt is exactly where we are.  We probably should read 1984 again.

A very interesting and frightening read.

DESTROY AMERICA

We know Dick Lamm as Governor of Colorado. In that context his thoughts are particularly poignant. Last week there was an immigration overpopulation conference in Washington, DC, filled to capacity by many of America’s finest minds and leaders. A brilliant college professor by the name of Victor Hansen Davis talked about his latest book, ‘Mexifornia,’ explaining how immigration – both legal and illegal was destroying the entire state of California. He said it would march across the country until it destroyed all vestiges of The American Dream.

Moments later, former Colorado Governor Richard D. Lamm stood up and gave a stunning speech on how to destroy America.

The audience sat spellbound as he described eight methods for the destruction of the United States . He said, ‘If you believe that America is too smug, too self-satisfied, too rich, then let’s destroy America. It is not that hard to do. No nation in history has survived the ravages of time. Arnold Toynbee observed that all great civilizations rise and fall and that ‘An autopsy of history would show that all great nations commit suicide.”

‘Here is how they do it,’ Lamm said:

‘First, to destroy America, turn America into a bilingual or multi-lingual and bicultural country…  History shows that no nation can survive the tension, conflict, and antagonism of two or more competing languages and cultures. It is a blessing for an individual to be bilingual; however, it is a curse for a society to be bilingual. The historical scholar, Seymour Lipset, put it this way: ‘The histories of bilingual and bicultural societies that do not assimilate are histories of turmoil, tension, and tragedy.’ Canada, Belgium, Malaysia, and Lebanon all face crises of national existence in which minorities press for autonomy , if not independence. Pakistan and Cyprus have divided. Nigeria suppressed an ethnic rebellion. France faces difficulties with Basques, Bretons, Corsicans and Muslims.’

Lamm went on:

‘Second, to destroy America, invent ‘multiculturalism’ and encourage immigrants to maintain their culture. Make it an article of belief that all cultures are equal; that there are no cultural differences. Make it an article of faith that the Black and Hispanic dropout rates are due solely to prejudice and discrimination by the majority. Every other explanation is out of bounds.

‘Third, we could make the United States an ‘Hispanic Quebec ‘ without much effort. The key is to celebrate diversity rather than unity. As Benjamin Schwarz said in the Atlantic Monthly recently: ‘The apparent success of our own multi-ethnic and multicultural experiment might have been achieved not by tolerance but by hegemony. Without the dominance that once dictated ethnocentric and what it meant to be an American, we are left with only tolerance and pluralism to hold us together.’ Lamm said, ‘I would encourage all immigrants to keep their own language and culture. I would replace the melting pot metaphor with the salad bowl metaphor. It is important to ensure that we have various cultural subgroups living in America enforcing their differences rather than as Americans, emphasizing their similarities.’

‘Fourth, I would make our fastest growing demographic group the least educated I would add a second underclass, unassimilated, undereducated, and antagonistic to our population. I would have this second underclass have a 50% dropout rate from high school.’

‘My fifth point for destroying America would be to get big foundations and business to give these efforts lots of money. I would invest in ethnic identity, and I would establish the cult of ‘Victimology.’ I would get all minorities to think that their lack of success was the fault of the majority. I would start a grievance industry blaming all minority failure on the majority.’

‘My sixth plan for America’s downfall would include dual citizenship, and promote divided loyalties. I would celebrate diversity over unity. I would stress differences rather than similarities. Diverse people worldwide are mostly engaged in hating each other – that is, when they are not killing each other. A diverse, peaceful, or stable society is against most historical precept. People undervalue the unity it takes to keep a nation together. Look at the ancient Greeks. The Greeks believed that they belonged to the same race; they possessed a common language and literature; and they worshipped the same gods. All Greece took part in the Olympic games. A common enemy, Persia , threatened their liberty. Yet all these bonds were not strong enough to overcome two factors: local patriotism and geographical conditions that nurtured political divisions. Greece fell. ‘E. Pluribus Unum’ — From many, one. In that historical reality, if we put the emphasis on the ‘pluribus’ instead of the ‘Unum,’ we will ‘Balkanize’  America as surely as Kosovo.’

‘Next to last, I would place all subjects off limits. Make it taboo to talk about anything against the cult of ‘diversity.’ I would find a word similar to ‘heretic’ in the 16th century – that stopped discussion and paralyzed thinking. Words like ‘racist’ or ‘xenophobe’ halt discussion and debate. Having made America a bilingual/bicultural country, having established   multiculcurism, having the large foundations fund the doctrine of ‘Victimology,’ I would next make it impossible to enforce our immigration laws. I would develop a mantra: That because immigration has been good for America, it must always be good. I would make every individual immigrant symmetric and ignore the cumulative impact of millions of them.’

In the last minute of his speech, Governor Lamm wiped his brow. Profound silence followed. Finally he said, ‘Lastly, I would censor Victor Hanson Davis’s book ‘Mexifornia.’ His book is dangerous. It exposes the plan to destroy America. If you feel America deserves to be destroyed, don’t read that book.’

There was no applause. A chilling fear quietly rose like an ominous cloud above every attendee at the conference. Every American in that room knew that everything Lamm enumerated was proceeding methodically, quietly, darkly, yet pervasively across the United States today. Discussion is being suppressed. Over 100 languages are ripping the foundation of our educational system and national cohesiveness. Even barbaric cultures that practice female genital mutilation are growing as we celebrate ‘diversity.’ American jobs are vanishing into the Third World as corporations create a Third World in America Take note of California and other states. To date, ten million illegal aliens and growing fast. It is reminiscent of George Orwell’s book ‘1984.’ In that story, three slogans are engraved in the Ministry of Truth building: ‘War is peace,’ ‘Freedom is slavery,’ and ‘Ignorance is strength.’

Governor Lamm walked back to his seat. It dawned on everyone at the conference that our nation and the future of this great democracy is deeply in trouble and worsening fast. If we don’t get this immigration monster stopped within three years, it will rage like a California wildfire and destroy everything in its path, especially The American Dream.

If you care for and love our country as much as I do, take the time to pass this on just as I did for you!

NOTHING is going to happen if you don’t!

Except your friends will not have had the chance to pass it on for more to read it!

DESTROY AMERICA

Paul Harvey and the Reign of Heavens

June 15th, 2017 by

http://www.paulstramer.net/search?q=Paul+Harvey+and+the+Reign+of+Heavens

From Judge Anna Von Reitz

This is a reply to the article published by the “Reign of Heaven” group (see below)– first my response to their queries and suppositions, then “The Rest of the Story” from the immortal Paul Harvey, and then the article from the Reign of Heavens Society, so you can see what Paul and I are replying to and why this is a sad state of affairs:

My Reply:

The unincorporated entity known as The United States of America and the incorporated entity also calling itself “The United States of America” are NOT THE SAME entities just because they appear to have the same name.  They are fundamentally different in nature, jurisdiction, and law.  Trying to obfuscate this in any way just slows down any solution to the problem this country faces.

It will also be seen that the quasi-military offices such as “Postmaster General” were NEVER  part of the lawful government of the actual United States and have instead existed in the Territorial United States and Municipal United States — that is, in international jurisdiction of the sea prior to the Civil War and afterward usurped upon the land as part of the Territorial United States’ administration.

But if you don’t know that there are three versions of “United States”— our version, the Territorial United States and the Municipal United States (both of which routinely just refer to themselves as “the United States” also) — it’s nigh on unto impossible for people to wrap their heads around which entity and which offices of which entity you are talking about.  

This is just another example of “similar names deceits” being used by lawyers to create deliberate confusions and wrong assumptions and keep us all at each other’s throats and unable to square off and deal with the actual problem.

It leaves people like the Reign of Heavens spinning their wheels in actual fact, contributing all their effort to a hopeless cause and ranting and accusing those of us who DO see the whole deceit of “telling lies”.  But then, they are confused and not rightly understanding or replying to what I actually said, and maybe they have a right to be confused, because after all, they have been misled by professionals. Read on for another apt and timely history lesson:

The Rest of the Story from Paul Harvey:

If there is a stain on the record of our forefathers, one dark hour in the earliest history of the American colonies, it would be the hanging of the so-called “witches” at Salem.

But that was a pinpoint in place and time, a brief lapse into hysteria.

For the most part, our seventeenth century colonists were scrupulously fair, even in fear.

There was one group of people they feared with reason – a society,  you might say, whose often insidious craft had claimed a multitude of victims, ever since the Middle Ages in Europe.

One group of people, hated and feared from Massachusetts Bay to Virginia.

The magistrates would not burn them at the stake, although surely a great many of the colonists might have recommended such a solution.

Our forefathers were baffled by them.

In the first place, where did they come from?

Of all who sailed from England to Plymouth in 1620, not one of those two-legged vermin was aboard.

“Vermin.”

That’s what the colonists called them.

Parasites who fed on human misery, spreading sorrow and confusion wherever they went.

“Destructive,” they were called.

And still they were permitted co-existence with the colonists.

For a while anyway.

Of course, there were colonial laws prohibiting the practice of their infamous craft. Somehow a way was always found around those laws.

In 1641, Massachusetts Bay colony took a novel approach to the problem. The governors attempted to starve those “devils” out of existence through economic exclusion. They were denied wages, and

thereby it was hoped that they would perish.

Four years later Virginia followed the example of Massachusetts Bay, and for a while it seemed that the dilemma had been resolved.

It had not.

Somehow the parasites managed to survive, and the mere nearness of them made the colonists’ skin crawl.

In 1658 in Virginia the final solution:

Banishment. Exile.

The “treacherous ones” were cast out of the colony.

At last, after decades of enduring the psychological gloom, the sun came out and birds sang and all was right with the world. And the elation continued for a generation.

I’m not sure why the Virginians eventually allowed the outcasts to return, but they did.

In 1680, after twenty-two years, the despised ones were readmitted to the colony on the condition that they be subjected to the strictest surveillance.

How soon we forget.

For indeed, over the next half-century or so, the imposed restrictions were slowly, quietly swept away. And those whose treachery had been feared since the Middle Ages ultimately took their place in society.

You see, the “vermin” that once infested colonial America, the parasites who preyed on the misfortune of their neighbors until finally they were officially banished from Virginia, those dreaded, despised and inevitably outcast masters of confusion were – LAWYERS!

And now you know THE REST OF THE STORY.

 

Below is the Reign of Heavens article. 

You can see for yourselves how they are confused and why:

International Public Notice

Claim in red, rebuttal in blue

This particular document was posted on the Anna Von Reitz website called ” Let’s Settle This Hash……”: LINK  on 04-26-2017
Wherein it states the following:

“The de jure government of this country is called The United States of America (Unincorporated). It has to be unincorporated to serve as a sovereign government, because if it held a corporate charter granted by some other government, it would be subservient to that government. Okay? Everyone got that?”

We can agree upon that statement because The United States of America and the Government of The United States of America is not incorporated. Embassy: LINK

“During the so-called American Civil War the rats in Congress created a doppelganger entity incorporated in Britain called “The United States of America, Inc.”. This is called “The United States of America” but it is not your de jure government. It is just a corporation granted a charter like any other British corporation.”

Where is the evidence of this claim? There are no links or documents, nothing….. This is the first time that the Government of The United States of America has ever heard of such a claim or the subject matter.

“Now we have Keith Livingway running around claiming that he basically went to a bankruptcy trustee sale and “bought” the office of “Postmaster General” out of a claim on abandonment. He is telling everyone that this abandoned office is the land jurisdiction trustee office once held by Benjamin Franklin and that it is the land jurisdiction de jure government that he is representing.”

Keith Livingway never claimed that he attended a bankruptcy trustee sale, nor did he ever claim to have bought the office of Postmaster General. Where is the evidence? Where is a publication of the claim? There isn’t any because it is a complete lie. The whole scenario was completely made up by Anna Von Reitz and Paul Stramer.

“But here’s the kicker—- Franklin held the office of Post Master (land) not Postmaster (sea) —- and on top of that, none of these quasi-military offices like “Lieutenant Governor” and “Attorney General” and “Postmaster General” even existed prior to the Civil War.”
Here is an image of the original ledger of Doctor Benjamin Franklin, and a LINK to the whole ledger now in PDF. (page nine)

Paul Harvey

Everyone can see that “Postmaster General” did in fact exist before the civil war, and here is the link to the successor of Ebeneezer Hazard:LINK The Postmaster General credentials are towards the bottom of the page.  The National assembly did create a department of the General Post Office to operate as a Government agency, however that was done to protect the original General Post Office of 1775 from foreign powers when doing business with them. The National assembly has that right and power to create such agencies when doing business with foreign powers. Further, everyone can see that Benjamin Franklin did in fact hold the office of Postmaster General and not this made up difference in spelling and land/sea jurisdiction garbage. All surveys require both, metes and bounds and seaward boundaries in order to be legitimate.  No one can land lock a country.

“Therefore— is Keith Livingway filling Franklin’s vacated office? No. He is claiming to own an office in a defunct British corporation that was bankrupted in 1907—- The United States of America, Inc. He is not occupying Franklin’s [land] office which was as a “Post Master” –two words, notice? And not a “Postmaster” and not a “General” anything. The de jure government of this country has never been incorporated and never can be incorporated. Period.”

True, the dejure Government of The United States of America cannot be incorporated in another country and it isn’t incorporated anywhere. As a matter of fact, corporations are required to be registered with the Government of The United States of America when doing business within its metes and bounds and seaward boundaries. Benjamin Franklin never vacated his office, it was succeeded as written in the Declaration of Chain of Title:

“Declaration of Chain of Title

IT IS DECLARED THAT; the office of the Postmaster General of the Confederacy of The United States of America of 1775, first held by Doctor

Benjamin Franklin on 26th of July 1775, was succeeded by Richard Bache on November 7th, 1776, succeeded by Ebenezer Hazard on the 28th

day of January, 1782, and died in the year of 1817 without naming a successor. The office of the Postmaster General of the Confederacy of

The United States of America of 1775 was vacant from the year 1817 until the year 2010.” as published April 2nd, 2012 at the link above. 

Keith Livingway is not and has never claimed to personally own any office, however he was appointed successor of Ebeneezer Hazard as stated in the Declaration of Chain of Title here: LINK  by the National assembly to the office of the Postmaster General and or Post Master General of the General Post Office of the original Confederacy of 1781 back to 1775 and now the Government of The United States of America. The appointment is for life or until succeeded to keep chain of title to the country known as The United States of America.

These facts as stated in blue may be a source of distress, jealousy, embarrassment or otherwise to Anna Von Reitz and Paul Stramer.  Those emotions do not give them the right to print lies, deceive people, or slander people. Neither of them have the right to attack people personally with lies and deceit. Neither of them called to verify the facts of their documents, ever…That is called libel and others that are parroting these lies and twisting the facts are also libel. All of this back and forth really needs to end because it is beginning to have the look and feel of high school all over again.

The office of the Postmaster General of the Government of The United States of America will never be vacated or released into the hands of proprietors seeking to use Patriot tricks to gain control of the country on behalf of foreign powers. Upon the death of the current aforesaid office holder, the chain of title reverts back to the National assembly to appoint a new successor and further there exists other protections of said office that is privileged information. Further, it is a vary serous crime to attack the General Post Office of the country.

THE T-ROH SHOW will broadcast and cover the real story and facts about how all of this came about when it pertains to the General Post Office and the original Government when more important issues are already covered.

The Underhanded Skullduggery To Pass The 14th Amendment

June 14th, 2017 by

https://newswithviews.com/the-underhanded-skullduggery-to-pass-the-14th-amendment/

Every now and then we pick up bits and pieces of reliable information from individuals that respond to our articles.  Such was the case when one of our readers gave us an “education” on how the 14th Amendment was passed, as described in a Utah State Supreme Court Case filed in March 1968, almost exactly 100 years after the passage of the Amendment.   At this point, we must stipulate that we believe the description contained in this case is accurate and true to the best of the Supreme Court judge’s knowledge of history.   Nevertheless, it cannot be ignored that, in war, “to the victor goes the spoils.”

SkullduggeryUnderstand that we are not making or taking a moral position in what transpired.  Nor are we taking sides in the conflict.  We are only describing the events that led up to the passage of the 14th Amendment, to demonstrate to what links government will go to get what they want.

The animosity between the inhabitants of the north and south did not soften after the civil war ended.  In fact, they still simmer to this day, especially with the current push to remove southern civil war icons, statues and monuments.   But the undercurrent of animosity that exists today was nothing compared to the anger that existed during the passage of the 14th Amendment in April of 1868 and the negative impact the Amendment had on state’s rights and later, illegal immigration.  The battlefield went silent, but not in the hearts and minds of the now disarmed combatants.  Yes, amnesty was granted to both sides and the 11 southern states assumed their lawful position in the now un-dissolvable United States.  But there was a catch that we will describe shortly.

President Lincoln had implemented the Emancipation Proclamation in 1863 during the war, as an executive order to free the slaves.  After the war it was necessary to codify the Executive Order into legislation, which resulted in the 13th Amendment.  It took 27 of the 36 existing states to ratify the Amendment.  10 of the Southern states agreed to ratification.

From the Utah Supreme Court Case in a dirty trick and act of duress number one:

“When the 39th Congress assembled on December 5, 1865, the senators and representatives from the 25 northern states voted to deny seats in both houses of Congress to anyone elected from the 11 southern states.  The full complement of senators from the 36 states of the Union was 72, and the full membership in the House was 240.  Since it requires only a majority vote (Article I, Section 5, Constitution of the United States) to refuse a seat in Congress, only the 50 senators and 182 congressmen from the North were seated.  All of the 22 senators and 58 representatives from the southern states were denied seats.”

The 13th Amendment was ratified by political trickery, but then along came the 14th Amendment on the heels of the 13th Amendment, to better clarify the citizenship of the now freed black slaves.  Even more than that, the 14th Amendment was purposely designed to deny any Southern government official, either elected or appointed, from being able to hold public office in the re-united government if they have or had “engaged in insurrection or rebellion against the Northern Government, or given aid or comfort to the enemies thereof.”  Of course, any existing public official from the 11 Southern States at the time, elected or appointed, obviously engaged in insurrection or rebellion during the war, from the perspective of the North and thus disqualified them from holding public office in the new government.

So the Northern states jockeyed the numbers to get the required two thirds vote to ratify the 14th Amendment.  But the Northern States did more than that to get the Southern States to capitulate to ratification.

From the Utah Supreme Court Case in a dirty trick and act of duress number two:

“Despite the fact that the southern states had been functioning peacefully for two years and had been counted to secure ratification of the Thirteenth Amendment, Congress passed the Reconstruction Act, which provided for the military occupation of 10 of the 11 southern states.  It excluded Tennessee from military occupation, and one must suspect it was because Tennessee had ratified the Fourteenth Amendment on July 7, 1866.  The Act further disfranchised practically all white voters and provided that no senator or congressman from the occupied states could be seated in Congress until a new constitution was adopted by each state which would be approved by Congress, and further provided that each of the 10 states must ratify the proposed Fourteenth Amendment, and the Fourteenth Amendment must become a part of the Constitution of the United States before the military occupancy would cease and the states be allowed seats in Congress.”

“By the time the Reconstruction Act had been declared to be the law, three more states had ratified the proposed Fourteenth Amendment, and two – Louisiana and Delaware – had rejected it.  Then Maryland withdrew its prior ratification and rejected the proposed Fourteenth Amendment. Ohio followed suit and withdrew its prior ratification, as also did New Jersey. California, which earlier had voted not to pass upon the proposal, now voted to reject the amendment. Thus 16 of the 37 states had rejected the proposed amendment.”

“By spurious, non representative governments, seven of the southern states, which had theretofore rejected the proposed amendment under the duress of military occupation and of being denied representation in Congress, did attempt to ratify the proposed Fourteenth Amendment.  The Secretary of State on July 20, 1868, issued his proclamation wherein he stated that it was his duty under the law to cause amendments to be published and certified as a part of the Constitution when he received official notice that they had been adopted pursuant to the Constitution.”

Obviously, to the more attentive reader, it was clear that the 14th Amendment was ratified under intense duress by the Northern States.  In effect, the 14th Amendment was ratified by political skullduggery and at the point of a gun, which is not unheard of in politics ….. or war.

In contract law, any contract signed under duress, especially under the threat of force or violence, can be declared null and void.   So the question is, is a treaty, constitutional amendment, or a contract, entered into under the threat of force or violence, enforceable?

Which leads us to the ratification of the 16th Amendment, codifying into law the Federal Reserve and the federal income tax.

Even though the U. S. Supreme Court twice adjudicated the issue of whether the 16th Amendment was legally ratified, the debate on that ratification rages on in some circles with alleged evidence to back up their arguments.

There were 48 states at the time, thus requiring 36 states to ratify any constitutional amendment.  When reviewing the ratification of the 16th Amendment, state by state, certain irregularities appear.  Tennessee, Kentucky and Oklahoma were three states where the irregularities were readily apparent.

In the Tennessee ratification procedure, the state law required that the vote for ratification could not take place until the next election of state legislators, giving sufficient time to debate the amendment.  Tennessee voted for ratification in violation of that state law.

In Oklahoma, the legislature changed the wording of the Amendment such that the meaning was the opposite of what Congress intended.

In Kentucky, the words of the amendment, which the legislators were to vote upon, omitted the words from the Congressional Amendment “on income.”

If all three states were omitted from the states that ratified the Amendment, the 16th Amendment would have failed ratification.

The Central Bankers and many wealthy industrialists wanted the 16th Amendment to pass because an income tax provided security for all of the loans they would make to government by indenturing every American citizen to the debt.  The law forced all present and future Americans to pledge the taxes of their lifetime earnings to secure that debt.  Finally, in the 1930’s each American’s social security number became their loan number for all central bank loans to government.

Was there duress, intimidation and or favors, in one form or another, placed upon the legislators of the individual states to ratify the Amendment?   Was that duress illegal?  It cannot be construed otherwise.

Consequently, by skullduggery, duress and the threat of force and violence, Americans were forced to accept as law, the 14th and 16th Amendments to the U. S. Constitution, wherein the benefits of the Amendments favored a special few, while creating a form of indentured servitude and slavery on the rest of us.

Remember!  The 14th Amendment led to “anchor babies” which created a giant magnet for illegal aliens to invade the United States, due to an unconscionable perversion of the Amendment by the U. S. Supreme Court.  The invasion and the cost of that invasion, continues to grow and magnify, especially with sanctuary jurisdictions defying federal immigration laws and adding to the magnets.  Each producing American is paying for that invasion in the billions of dollars.  But the 14th Amendment also seriously diluted state’s rights under the Constitution, which the Utah Supreme Court Justices railed against.

Remember!  The 16th Amendment has led to an income tax code of almost 75,000 pages of laws and regulations that no one, not even the IRS or your favorite tax preparer, CPA, or tax attorney, can interpret the same way, leading normal, reasonable and prudent American citizens to perjure themselves each time they sign Form 1040, or any other income tax form.

Former Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld sends a letter to the IRS each year stating, and we paraphrase:  “I have absolutely no idea whether my tax returns and my payments are accurate, even though I am a college graduate.  The tax code is so complex and the forms are so complicated that I don’t know whether or not my tax returns are accurate and I am sure most Americans feel the same way.  I have spent way too much money on tax firms to prepare my return.

Sadly, the American people go on about their daily lives oblivious to the fact that they are quite likely being governed by laws and constitutional amendments that were passed in violation of that constitution.  No!  Not “quite likely.”  Absolutely!

We have not taken on the 14th Amendment even though we strongly believe the “anchor baby” provision of the Amendment should be repealed.  However, we are taking on the 16th Amendment with our website entitled “Save the USA” where we are calling for the IRS to be abolished and the 16th Amendment to be modified by eliminating the income tax provision.  In addition to the website, we have created two, 3-to-4 minute Youtube videos.  One is entitled, “The IRS Blows My Mind” and the second is entitled “The IRS Took My Car Away.”  These videos are poetic takeoffs on IRS injustices, set to very familiar music.  The videos are entertaining, emotionally appealing and convey the frustration of millions of Americans with the IRS.  You may even see yourself in one or both of the videos.

Congress is not going to fix or abolish the IRS in the short or long term because it would take away the power of the Congress to control every aspect of our lives.  The question is, will enough Americans get together to abolish the IRS by putting intense pressure on the Congress?  We’ve started the ball rolling.  The rest is up to the American people who have been conned, hoodwinked and lied to by their government since the civil war.  While the American people dither, the government gets stronger and stronger.

LAND GRAB

By Anna Von Reitz

Apparently a lot of people didn’t notice or didn’t pay attention or didn’t know what it meant when I told everyone that I had established a Private Indemnity Bond at the U.S. Treasury covering every state of the Union—- but that is critical information to have branded on your foreheads in the days to come.

The UNITED STATES, INC. is in liquidation. The Bankruptcy Trustees are going to try to liquidate, sell, tax, or otherwise raise funds off of all the franchises of the UNITED STATES, INC. This includes the STATE OF MINNESOTA and CRAWFORD COUNTY, MINNESOTA, and JOHN MICHAEL DOE, too.

When your land deeds and car titles and mortgages are all in the NAME OF a UNITED STATES franchise, what do you think is going to happen? You are going to be “assumed to be a surety” and “collateral” for the debts of all these fictitious entities, and the secondary creditors—- banks and foreign investors— are going to be howling for your blood and for the auctioning off of your assets to pay the bills of the UNITED STATES.

Get it? This is a repeat of what FDR did back in the 1930’s only worse. This time the rotten bastards want it all. They want the copyright to your name, they want your DNA, they want your body, your house, your business, your land—- anything that is “assumed” to belong to the JOHN MICHAEL DOE version of your NAME. See “Power to Sell — The Latest Land Grab“.

If you are like most people, you had no idea that any such secretive claim against you or your assets existed and unless you have been reading the news posted here, this is going to catch you blind-sided. You are not going to know what to do and you are not going to have anything in place to defend yourself— UNLESS— you remember that you and your property are indemnified against loss.

How, why, by whom? By me and by my team because we were awake and got things in place for you. Just as neighbors, we did all the work so that at this crucial moment in history, you could remember in which state you were born and write the following:

“Held under Private Indemnity Bond AMRI00001 RA393427640US Montana” —-or the same numbers and whatever your birth state is, on your land deeds, vehicle titles, or any other property assets they come after and try to seize.

AMRI00001 RA393427640US Alaska
AMRI00001 RA393427640US Alabama
AMRI00001 RA393427640US Arkansas…..

This is your “Home Free” Card, your indemnity policy, your means to rebut all and any claims that come addressed against actual assets held in the ALL CAPITAL LETTERS NAMES.

Please do all that you can to help and inform your friends and neighbors and countrymen. I have given specific instructions for those facing sudden huge “tax” bills, and “Notices of Power to Sell” and similar demands being made against their homes and land holdings in the article called: “Power to Sell” — The Latest Land Grab.

P.S. — Use the Private Indemnity Bond to Protect Your Bank Accounts and IRA’s and 401K’s, too. Inform the banks and IRA / 401K managers via Registered Mail that your accounts are private accounts and are held under Private Registered Indemnity Bond AMRI00001 RA393427640US – Your Home State.

AN OLD WOMAN WALKED UP AND TIED HER OLD MULE TO THE HITCHING POST.

AS SHE STOOD THERE, BRUSHING SOME OF THE DUST FROM HER FACE AND CLOTHES, A YOUNG GUNSLINGER STEPPED OUT OF THE SALOON WITH A GUN IN ONE HAND AND A BOTTLE OF WHISKEY IN THE OTHER. THE YOUNG GUNSLINGER LOOKED AT THE OLD WOMAN AND LAUGHED, “HEY OLD WOMAN, HAVE YOU EVER DANCED?”

THE OLD WOMAN LOOKED UP AT THE GUNSLINGER AND SAID, “NO,… I NEVER DID DANCE… NEVER REALLY WANTED TO.”

A CROWD HAD GATHERED AS THE GUNSLINGER GRINNED AND SAID “WELL, YOU OLD BAG, YOU’RE GONNA DANCE NOW,” AND STARTED SHOOTING AT THE OLD WOMAN’S FEET.

THE OLD WOMAN PROSPECTOR — NOT WANTING TO GET HER TOE BLOWN OFF –STARTED HOPPING AROUND.

EVERYBODY WAS LAUGHING. WHEN HIS LAST BULLET HAD BEEN FIRED, THE YOUNG GUNSLINGER, STILL LAUGHING, HOLSTERED HIS GUN AND TURNED AROUND TO GO BACK INTO THE SALOON.

THE OLD WOMAN TURNED TO HER PACK MULE, PULLED OUT A DOUBLE-BARRELED SHOTGUN, AND COCKED BOTH HAMMERS.

 

THE LOUD CLICKS CARRIED CLEARLY THROUGH THE DESERT AIR, AND THE CROWD STOPPED LAUGHING IMMEDIATELY.

THE YOUNG GUNSLINGER HEARD THE SOUNDS, TOO, AND HE TURNED AROUND VERY SLOWLY. THE SILENCE WAS ALMOST DEAFENING. THE CROWD WATCHED AS THE YOUNG GUNMAN STARED AT THE OLD WOMAN AND THE LARGE GAPING HOLES OF THOSE TWIN BARRELS.

THE BARRELS OF THE SHOTGUN NEVER WAVERED IN THE OLD WOMAN’S HANDS, AS SHE QUIETLY SAID, “SON, HAVE YOU EVER KISSED A MULE’S ASS?”

THE GUNSLINGER SWALLOWED HARD AND SAID, “NO M’AM… BUT I’VE ALWAYS WANTED TO.

THERE ARE FIVE LESSONS HERE FOR ALL OF US:

1 – Never be arrogant.

 

2 – Don’t waste ammunition.

 

3 – Whiskey makes you think you’re smarter than you are.

 

4 – Always make sure you know who has the power.

 

5 – Don’t mess with old people; they didn’t get old by being stupid.

Revised Bolshevikism Within America Part 1

Jun 10, 2017 Read More Articles by Joe Kress

For way too long, America and its people have been lulled into what can only be described as avoidance of reality. We have permitted greed, complacency and utopia to flourish gratis a succession of self-serving federal autocrats and foreign influences to grasp power and controls of our currency that permitted special interests to bribe our congress.  We the public are complicit because we agreed to go along with a system that promises free booty at no cost since the time of the creation of the Federal Reserve Act of 1913.  It authorized a machine to print out unsecured interest-bearing notes. It authorized a corrupted banking clique within congress, who formulated the idea that the Federal Treasury would issue bonds to guarantee the notes, and permitted congress the ability to pass bills so that the U.S. treasury picks up the tab. Today, the Ponzi game has accumulated a deficit of $20 trillion dollars that will take centuries to reimburse all those bond-holders and their governments throughout the world both finances, principal and accumulated interest.

Worse than even these figures, the Trump Administration wishes to use the age old pump priming con adding more than three to seven additional trillions of dollars to support cleaning out the swamp, building a fence on our southern border, lower taxes, increase wages and eventually repaying the debt. Trumps vision was meant to entice American business located overseas to move their production and construct new facilities here in the United States.  The Trump dream is utopian at best and so he is now back-tracking and modifying his plan as fast as possible.  President Trump places his trust in his Goldman Sachs cabinet and his dream plan will land up in the hands of the international banking industry dedicated to a cashless society where ATMs don’t issue cash but credits or debit transfers to a cashless, computerized, digitized account.  The result is the central bankers are to be totally in control of the money system both here in the USA as well as throughout the Western World.   The power of the money changers will be enhanced when the money system is incorporated under the new world order centered at The Hague.   Lord Rothschild, in the 18th Century loaned money to the kings to pay for their wars.  He made the loans to both sides of the conflicts.  He stated that “He who controls the king’s purse controls the king.” The poison leaves the fangs of the snake once it bites – the entire body politic dies a slow agonizing death, first within the Washington establishment then the states then the counties and on to cities simultaneously encouraged within the blinded general public.

The contemporary American citizens signed on to real problems as the U.S entangled itself within Europe’s factions, the Orient, the Middle East, the Far East followed by disastrous mistakes; horrendous blunders in leadership which weakened the U.S. on a precipitous route never intended by our forefathers.  One could state with confidence that with very few exceptions the leadership capitulated to a confederacy of dunces and brigands that began shortly after the ink dried on the inspired, brilliant legacy of the U.S. Constitution.  It was endorsed by highly-educated, knowledgeable, brave men who desired to lift the yoke of taxation and forced subjugation of the colonies by the King of England.  They fought and died along with their families and lost homes and wealth in the battles.

When a true genius appears in the world can he be recognized and once suspected, we may know by the confederacy against him or her.   Was Washington a genius or was it Hamilton, Madison, Jefferson, Al Gore or is it Donald Trump; was Napoleon a genius, Hitler, Stalin, Lord Rothschild or not any of them?  Some of them were so smart that they should have been executed but saved by luck.  A few are revered in history books, but most were disasters to the world.  Helen Keller, the blind deaf and dumb woman who overcame her disabilities is recognized for her intellect and may be the true genius.

Today, Americans tired of two world wars and by a string of non-declared wars and unwarranted losses; wars never meant to be won. Few within the general public’s psyche were aware that our nation is governed by an elite class, within the two-party system… loyal only to themselves. The final folly is when our nation became subservient to a tiny country located in the Middle East.  George Washington, in his final farewell speech, warned against favorites and counseled to treat all nations with equanimity.

All but two-percent of the major media and financial systems are either owned or wed to an ancient heritage, a tribe of people of Turk-Finish race who migrated to Russia’s Ukraine about 100 years after the death of Christ. Much later, a leader by the name of Bulan, an early chieftain emerged between 700 AD and 1000 AD.  He converted 4,000 men from his entire tribe to rudimentary Talmudic Judaism to avoid the Pope’s Eastern Catholic and Greek Orthodox religious beliefs and the early Tsarists’ influence and Mohammed’s emerging Muslim laws and their Caliphate that would impose Islam on his followers.  He decided that all males in the tribe be circumcised and acknowledge Judaism.  A successor to Bulan, bore the Hebrew name Obadiah. He was first to cause serious efforts to further the Jewish Talmudic religion.  He invited Jewish rabbis of high intellect to settle into his dominions; rewarded them royally and founded synagogues and schools.  After Obadiah, a long line of Jewish “Chagan” began the legacy of what were called the Khazars.

The fundamental law of their state was decreed where only Jewish rulers were permitted to ascend the throne. The Great Khazar Kingdom lasted about 500 years.  Toward the end of the 14th century, the Khazars were Defeated in battle by Varangins (Russians).

The Khazars’ tribe once defeated, finally settled near Kiev in the Crimea.  It was never a pleasant association because Russians were exposed to the now conquered Khazars known for unethical behavior, financial and commercial cheating.  They were rebellious refusing to be assimilated as a part of the Russian populace.  They, of course, should not be confused with accepted Biblical Hebrews, who traditionally following Mosaic Law and who staunchly believe in the Torah, the first five books of the Pentateuch in the Bible.

The historical lineages of the Khazars called Ashkenazi are in the 21st century acknowledged as the major, most powerful segment of American and Israel’s Jewry.  Israel’s leadership is mainly secular within the Knesset led by its present Ashkenazi Prime Minister Netanyahu.

As mentioned above, the Khazars were rebellious because of their unfavorable traditions under Tsarist rule and were finally settled in Russia’s eastern border.   Peter the Great in the midst of the 17th century exposed Russia to western European progress and opened the door to European inventions. He created then rudimentary Russian modernism, followed on by Catherine the Great who found the mainly isolationist Khazars as unacceptable within the emerging European influence of developing Russia.  She imposed the Pale of Settlements which confined the Khazars, known as Ashkenazi Jews to limited areas within Russia’s Crimea near Kiev.

In the waning years of the nineteenth century, 1881, Tsar Alexander II, opened the door for Russia’s Khazars, to the modern world and eliminated serfdom. Alexander II’s son, Nicholas II, permitted the Ashkenazi Jews to settle anywhere in all of Russia, then in Europe and America. He allowed them to hold positions in Russia’s government.  Benjamin Disraeli, Prime Minister of England, referred to Tsar Alexander 2nd, who was assassinated in 1881, as the most benevolent prince that ever ruled over Russia.”

It is doubtful that the British Prime Minister within Victoria’s reign envisioned within a few short years, in the first decades of the 20th century, that the Russian Monarchy, Russian farmers in the Ukraine and millions of Christian citizens, (named the goyium meaning cattle), would be slaughtered, imprisoned and controlled through a revolution where Bolsheviks, Mensheviks and Stalin controlled Russia as a Communist state and at every level the leadership was of Khazar ancestry.  Disraeli, no doubt at the time, because of his position and geopolitical knowledge of Russian politics was even then aware of the Russian Khazars’ singular purpose that was bent on eventually overthrowing the hated Royalty of the Russian empire.

Conversion of France to a Godless Society and the launching of the French Revolution

 Before 1777 , Adam Weishaupt a professor of Cannon Law at a Jesuit university in Ingolstadt Bavaria, formulated and executed his concept composed of what he named Illuminism or enlightenment. His first followers were student Illumines claiming to be enlightened and superior to others. Weishaupt’s movement was centered under the rule of King Fredrick the Great of Prussia who later expelled the Illumines and Illuminism which threatened his regency.  Subsequently, they found a home within French Masonry of France and from there motivated the Jacobins to foster the most radical part of the revolution headed by Robespierre’s madness to overthrow the French monarchy and launch the key revolutionary factor of the reign of terror within the French Revolution. At the Congress of Willhelmsbad, in 1782, the Illuminati merged with the Masons in nothing less than a metamorphosis of Masonry’s traditional role as tradesmen to the role of sophisticates with a different agenda than the old constructive arts of the craft.  The Lodge of the Grand Orient, a product of the French Revolution, still celebrates the glorious decapitation of the royal couple and the slaughter that followed.

At the pinnacle of the revolution the Illumines, Weishaupt’s well indoctrinated surrogates demonstrated the evil of its founder.  The anti-religious, violent, ruthless, savage, bestial transformation of the French populace took hold and France was consumed in terror.  Weishaupt’s “Dictionary of Secret Oaths, incantations, and recruiting methods of surveillance, intimidation found in Illuminism were not coincidently adopted later by the Mensheviks, Bolsheviks and the Communist Party. Atheism verses enlightened secularism became a euphemism for elimination of religions and God; made abortion as not criminal; marriage no longer a sacrament; atheism became the religion of the state itself, a substitute for ethics convulsed into the KGB-like enforcement of injustice; gulags; legal murder became emblems of autocratic rule

 OLDDOGS LETTERS

Good morning fellow prisoners

Olddog is taking a few days off as I complete the construction of my new pistol – rifle range located just 1 mile from home on seventy acres of pasture and woods. As some of you already know, I have been trying to comprehend how Americans have become so unaware of their imprisonment for over ten years and still it amazes’ me that so few give a damn as long as they have their sources of entertainment.

In the beginning of my presence on the internet I started two different sites named

In Pursuit of Freedom and OLDDOGS LETTERS ,

but never attempted to create a following as my lack of credentials have always intimidated me into accepting lesser methods of accomplishing my goals. The one thing that has always confused me is, how is it possible that so many millions of intelligent people cannot see what the Government is doing to them? Confounded by that seemingly impossible tragedy I started A Nation Beguiled.Com and proceeded to distribute the works of some of the best authors who had the credentials and skills I do not have. So, I am republishing the info on those two sites to have yet another source of exposure to information that may help someone understand what happened to their freedom. May you all become enraged at what was done to you, and pass this info to everyone you know.

Real Satire

After profound analysis I’ve decided that our retired Republican Socialist actually want a police state; to gain protection from the working class Democrats that want five hundred channels of [PROFESSIONAL ? ] wrestling and NASCAR on the cable, beer, porn, easy sex and two weeks a year at Disney World. They don’t read much, largely because of honest inability, and count on their fingers, up to maybe six. They’d be perfectly happy to have storm troopers on every corner, as Uzis and flack jackets lend drama to lives that don’t have any intellectual pursuits.

This deplorable situation is the result of a government controlled education that brain drains our citizens before they reach puberty, and destroys interest in any higher thoughts than self gratification, and media addiction.

If any of you can still remember 300 word letters to the Editor; I was infuriated when they cut them to 200, as it is a severe handicap for a government educated person to express a proposition without using body language or audible grunts. The dull and ignorant have rights too, and deserve to be heard (from)! However, the word YUHNO they invented has never been assigned a correct spelling, so, I guess it’s immaterial.

Intellectual capitulation

Those who believe the U.S. Constitution is still the supreme law of the land are just as delusional as those who believe America has free and honest markets.

The Constitution is selectively enforced by government corporations, acting in obedience to the international bankers, just as our founding fathers predicted.

Our present concern is for getting arrested for not obeying all the un-constitutional laws being passed by a rogue Congress, preserving the ability to earn a living, and stopping the transformation to a Global Electronic Currency, and Global Government.

American’s are totally beguiled by THE UNITED STATES CORPORATION, which is a Washington D.C. Corporation acting as elected politicians, with the sole objective of draining America of its natural resources, devaluing its currency through the excessive accumulation of national, and personal debt, and indoctrinating each generation into a dependency on the government to solve their problems, and take care of them.

As each generation of indoctrinated children mature, and each generation of self reliant individuals die off, America becomes a nation of intellectual cowards who obediently accept economic slavery.

Communitarianism then becomes America’s GOD, technology will no longer be needed to update character databases, and personal freedom will no longer be desired.

Notice to Congress The Days of Legalizing Theft Are Over

June 7th, 2017 by

http://www.paulstramer.net/search?q=Notice+to+Congress%E2%80%94The+Days+of+Legalizing+Theft+Are+Over

CONGRESSFrom the writings of Anna von Reitz. Big Lake Alaska  September 2014

The most recent round of fraud began on March 28, 1861.  That was the day the Congress of the united States of America adjourned for lack of quorum and never reconvened.  Ever since, “Congress” has functioned in one of three roles—(1) as a corporate Board of Directors for private, mostly foreign-owned and deceptively named governmental services corporations operated by banking cartels (the Federal Reserve running the “United States of America, Inc.” and the IMF running the “UNITED STATES”) or (2) the government of a legislative democracy calling itself the United States of America (Minor)—American “states” more often thought of as federal territories and possessions—Guam, Puerto Rico, etc., or (3) operating as a plenary oligarchy ruling the Washington DC Municipal Government.

All this time that you thought the members of Congress were representing you and your interests, they’ve been representing other interests entirely.  That explains a lot, doesn’t it? 

On March 6, 1933 the “President” of the “United States of America, Inc.” Franklin Delano Roosevelt attended a Conference of Governors meeting.  These “Governors” were all “State” franchise managers of the United States of America, Inc., exactly like local franchise owners of Burger King or Sears.  They got together and pledged the assets of their customers—their employers—the American states and people——as “sureties” for their private corporate debts.  And then they bankrupted the “United States of America” and all the “State” franchises.

The “federal” States that were created by the 14th Amendment of their private for-profit corporation’s look-alike, sound-alike “constitution” published as the “Constitution of the United States of America” are not the same as the actual States of the Union, nor are their “State” citizens the same as American State Citizens, nor are their “US citizens” the same as Citizens of the united States, but they pretended that they were and the banks gleefully agreed. To secure the debt owed by the “United States of America, Inc.” the banks established maritime salvage liens against every parcel of land, every business, every man, woman, and child in America, and continued to operate their doppelganger corporation under Chapter 11 Reorganization. They laid claim to your “good faith and credit” —stole your credit cards— and your identity as an American State Citizen, and they never bothered to tell the victim.  

They also had you declared legally dead and probated your estate and issued bonds based on the value of your labor and private property. Just look at “your” Birth Certificate—signed by the County Registrar, an officer of the probate court, issued in the NAME of a “dead person”—you, numbered as a bond and issued on bond paper.  At the same time, they converted all your private bank accounts to the ownership of the ESTATE trust they created “in your name” and moved the ESTATE offshore to Puerto Rico where you and your assets supposedly came under the foreign maritime jurisdiction of the United States of America (Minor).  Look at the NAME on “your” bank account checks.  Look at the signature line under a high powered magnifier.  The IMF claims that it owns all your bank accounts.  It claims that your ESTATE was “abandoned”, and now all the spoils belong to the bank.  They are pressing “Congress” to pass “laws” to allow them to seize all American bank accounts—your savings, your retirement accounts, your checking accounts, everything.  We’ve seen Dodd-Frank.  Now we are seeing “bail-in” proposals. The Big Banks want “Congress” to front for their greed and criminality—again.

This is all fiduciary trust fraud and fiduciary trust fraud has no statute of limitations. 1862 or 1933 or 2014—it makes no difference.  We suggest that members of Congress assume their public offices acting under full 100% individual commercial liability —or be ousted and tried as criminals. Next, we suggest that they honor their contract with America and issue debt-free public money— real American Dollars. Next, liquidate all the “too big to fail” banks, tear up the corporate charters these entities have violated, seize back our purloined assets, and shut them all down. Meanwhile, the market for financial services will open up for banks operated under actual state charters.

This thing you have thought of as your government is nothing but a multi-national conglomerate run criminally amok. The real government of this country is vested in each of you. You all hold more civil authority on the land than the entire federal government.  Deal with the “FEDERAL RESERVE” and “IMF” and “CONGRESS” the same way you would deal with “TARGET” or “WALMART” or “ARBY’S” if they grossly endangered, cheated, enslaved, and defrauded you.   Keep calm and get even.  You all know what to do. 

You have the guaranteed Universal Right of Self-Declaration provided by United Nations Conventions, plus the protections of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.  You have the Geneva Conventions and the Lieber Code.  You have the preserved right to Common Law, guaranteed by Uniform Commercial Code 1-308 and recourse guaranteed by 1-103.6, which includes the right not to be bound by any contract that is unilateral, inequitable, involuntary, undisclosed, tainted by fraud, not in-kind, entered in your behalf by others merely claiming to represent you, or deemed to exist as the result of receiving a compelled benefit or fruit of monopoly inducement.  You have the absolute right to Expatriate from their maritime jurisdiction.

Do so.

When 400 million Americans stand up and clean house, the world will listen and hear the roar.

U. S. Trade Rep. Wants Your Input About NAFTA Negotiations

June 6th, 2017 by

https://www.jbs.org/jbs-news/news/item/19017-u-s-trade-rep-wants-

your-input-about-nafta-negotiations

TRADE

By  Chris Stevens

You have until June 12th to post your online comments to the U.S. Trade Representative on the NAFTA negotiations.

Millions of Americans voted for Trump to “rip up those trade deals.” He said NAFTA is “the worst trade deal maybe ever signed anywhere, but certainly ever signed in this country.”

But U.S. Trade Representative (USTR) Robert Lighthizer, a member of the globalist Council on Foreign Relations (CFR), along with other globalists in and out of the administration, have convinced Trump to renegotiate instead of withdraw. They are making a mad dash to stampede America into expanding NAFTA.

If you think NAFTA is bad now, it’s going to get a whole lot worse if we don’t stop the globalists from turning it into a North American Union!

In USTR Lighthizer’s May 18th letter to Congress triggering a 90-consultation between the administration, Congress and the American people, he said, “[O]ur aim is that NAFTA be modernized to include new provisions…. Moreover, establishing effective implementation and aggressive enforcement … should be improved….” [Emphasis added.] In his letter he outlined goals for a supersized NAFTA that sound very similar to the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP), the European Union (EU), and the North American Union (NAU).

What would result from his stated goals?

  • Further suppressed wages and leveling of Mexican, Canadian, and U.S. economies
  • Unelected foreign bureaucrats regulating businesses and entrepreneurs
  • Expanded and “aggressive enforcement” of bureaucratic environmental and business regulations
  • Merger of police and military for North America

For additional details and background information, read The New American online article,

U.S. Trade Representative Seeks to Expand and Empower NAFTA,” along with the related articles beneath it.

Long-term goals of the globalists, as outlined by the Council on Foreign Relations, include amnesty for illegal aliens and open borders between Mexico, the U.S., and Canada. They want to repeal and replace our Declaration of Independence, Constitution, and Bill of Rights with an unelected, unaccountable supranational bureaucracy.

The same piecemeal approach is how they have been building the EU into a socialist super-state. The UK rejected this destructive agenda and voted last year to get out.

Negotiations with Mexico and Canada can begin as early as August. They are looking forward to the further redistribution of American wealth that will result from expanding NAFTA.

We must alert the American people in order to create a tsunami of public pressure to stop the North American Union by getting US out of NAFTA. You can help by forwarding this action alert to your email list.

The USTR has published in the Federal Register the obligatory request for public comments about his NAFTA negotiation plans. He’s only giving the public until June 12th to comment and he makes it clear he intends to modernize and expand NAFTA. He frames the issue, not by asking whether or not America thinks NAFTA should be expanded, but only how it should be expanded over numerous areas of policy.

This is unacceptable, unconstitutional and it is destructive to the U.S. economy to continue merging us with Mexico and Canada. If asked, how many Americans would want to surrender U.S. sovereignty to a supranational bureaucracy?

Please tell the USTR what you think of his NAFTA negotiations.

You can do so online by clicking this link until June 12th. Tips for effective comments can be

found here. Comments will be open to public inspection. As always, please be respectful, professional, and factual.

A public hearing will be held on June 27th in Washington, DC. Persons wishing to testify orally at the hearing must provide written notification of their intention by June 12th. More details can be found here.

Don’t stop there! Trump should fire the globalists in his administration who are pushing him to ignore his constituents and betray his campaign promises. Then he should work with Congress to Get US Out! of NAFTA and disentangle us from all of its tentacles.

Call on Congress & President Trump to Get US Out! of NAFTA

SPRINGBy Anna Von Reitz

When you look outside your window at the magnificent Creation beyond, what do you see?

Just one kind of flower?

Just one kind of tree?

One species of insect?

How many kinds of fish in the sea?

Our Creator loves diversity. He loves all the differences.

Isn’t it silly to suppose that He values a violet less than a rose?

What is this craziness that people have, when they think and apparently believe, that one man is less than another because his skin is black?

Or think that a woman is less than man?

Or that the old are not as good as the young?

Sometimes I look at my garden with all its different living plants, all their flowers and fruits and forms, and I see my Father’s hand in them and know how He must delight in creating all these different variations.

I think about how they serve so many different purposes, too: to feed us, to delight our senses, to heal us from our ills, to fill our world with color and texture and fresh clean air.

If God were stingy or stodgy or lacking in imagination, why not just plug in a single big grey and black air conditioner and call it good?

Even the common grass beneath your feet is a miracle.

And even the grass you cannot create.

Love the Creator. Learn what He teaches. If you have eyes and ears and heart, then open them up.

Take joy in all your kinds and all your nations, in your rich palette of colors and forms, in your multiplicity of gifts and talents, in your own special, one-of-a-kind self, a creation both like and unlike any other.

Let gratitude and wonder overwhelm your soul and think: there are billions upon billions of stars in the sky and not one of them the same as any other….

Olddogs Comments!

I remember when most people lived and believed under a supreme creator and those who did not were shunned by the majority. Jesus Christ was always there to comfort the sick and needy and no one ever heard of Allah. Now we have Gods for every brain fart and every brain fart is protected by our government. You do not have to be a genius to figure out governments are the inventors of diversity and that dear reader is how America became an apostate country. Gods are as common as weeds and flowers.

ChristiansBy Anna Von Reitz

I have received a lot of backlash from my article explaining that “Christian” Kings hired Jews to practice usury against Christians to make a buck.  Even faced with the present government and its activities, there are some  who want to argue the point and can’t believe that their kings and queens would do any such nasty, dishonorable, small-minded, money-grubbing thing—-even though these are the ancestors of the same people who have stolen your identity, transformed “you” into a commodity to be traded like pounds of butter, and taken the profit of it for themselves.

Anyone who looks into the history of usury for the past thousand years will have no trouble unearthing the unsavory facts about both the Church and the State gleefully employing and yes, coercing Jews, to commit usury against Christians for profit.

There have also been numerous people on my website and sending me emails making hate-filled statements against Muslims and the Koran. 

I have friends who are linguists.  My own Aunt was a linguist who spoke seven languages fluently and wrote five of them just as fluently.  The linguists among us long ago noted a very curious thing.  The same thing that went on with the Roman Catholic Church and the use of Latin so that average people couldn’t read the Bible for themselves, has gone on with the language of the Prophet and the Koran. 

Most Muslims are not able to read what the Prophet actually wrote because they are not taught to read, and among those who do read a very, very few can actually read the language of the Prophet. Thus, they rely on hearsay from their Holy Men, most of whom can’t read the actual words of the Prophet, either.  So the blind lead the blind.

Instead, everyone relies on word-of-mouth translations learned by rote.  Anyone who has ever played the game “Telephone” knows what to expect, even when people try their best to remember everything and keep it exact.  Their own thoughts, ignorance, emotion, and assumptions color their transmission.  

It turns out that when the Prophet’s words are read in his language, they often say something different or even the exact opposite, of what is being taught in the mosques.  HIs actual words have been corrupted.  Profaned.  Betrayed.  Misunderstood.  Lied about.  Politicized. And the people — even the religious teachers — are kept so ignorant they don’t know and can’t correct their errors.

Is this beginning to sound familiar? 

The Satanists have done the same thing to the Muslims as they did to the Christians, and have given us all another oxymoron—- holy war— to contemplate.

Hello?  You think this is coincidence? 

The actual words of the Prophet are gentle and kind, not at all the hate-filled rantings you hear coming out of the mouths of those who claim to “represent” him. 

So there’s another clue for you as to what is going on here and who is behind it.

Where else have you seen this kind of substitution go on?  Substitution of “things”— corporate franchises— for living men?  Substitution for actual shareholders by “undeclared foreign agents” claiming to “represent” them?   Substitution of “civil rights”  or “human rights” for “natural and unalienable rights”?  Substitution of State Citizenship for State of Citizenship?   

Even the word “trust” is a twisted abomination, meaning one thing in popular English vernacular, and having a completely different meaning in the original language.  The root word “trucido” in Latin means to kill, to slaughter mercilessly, murder. 

The Muslims are being tricked with half-truths and sly, politically motivated interpretations of the Prophet’s words the same way that we Christians have been duped and kept ignorant and led around by our noses and deceived by people we trusted. 

The Satanic Perps are even doing it the same way, using the same tools, the same old time-worn methods—- dumb the victims down and keep them ignorant, divide them according to race or religion or any other difference, feed them all sorts of lies and scare them silly, weigh them down with superstitions and rules that God never gave to Man….  

It’s all the same old crap. 

The Muslims are just a little bit behind the curve and are going through what we have already experienced.  That being true, we should be able to recognize it when someone else is being manipulated the same way we were.  And we shouldn’t blame the victims.  We should blame the Satanists that have infiltrated Islam just as they have infiltrated Christianity and Judaism, to the same vile ends, for the same ugly purposes, and even using the same means, the same lies, and the same fears.  

We, the living people, are in a spiritual war. Our battle commander is the Holy Spirit.  Our weapons in this “war” are discernment, courage, humility, gratitude, generosity, mercy, love, faith, truth, justice, and peace.  It is only with these weapons that any of us can win.

Christians should know this, should teach it, and should be prepared for the assault — but on all sides I hear professing Christians spewing hate and flooding the airwaves with fear.  Did Yeshuah allow hate and fear to overcome Him?  Is that what He taught us?  Really?  Just roll over and wallow in it? 

Do you all think that the command to “love your enemy” was a typographical error?

I began my life as a mathematician.  Here is a simple little set of equations I want you to observe, knowing that they are part of the fabric and foundation of the Universe we are all part of and live in:

This means that if you add negative things to negative things all you get are bigger more dangerous and uglier negative things.

This means that if you add positive things to negative things in equal measure, they cancel each other out and there is no net change.

This means that if you add positive things to positive things you build up a whole full measure of positive things that yield more positive results.

Okay, folks?  You won’t believe Yeshuah?  You won’t believe me?  How about you believe the simple mathematics in front of your face?

When you return evil for evil, all you do is create a bigger mound of evil.

When you return good for evil, you cancel it out.

When you return good for good, you create Heaven on Earth.

If we want to win the spiritual war that threatens all Mankind, we must defeat evil by eradicating it from our own hearts and minds and replacing it with good. Yes, as a very practical matter, we have to return good for evil and encourage others to do the same by our example.

This is especially important for those who call themselves “Christians”.  

Much has been given to you and for you, and much is expected of you in return. You can’t claim ignorance. You know the math.

Every time I hear a “Christian” blaming and whining and gossiping and being petty and ignorant and fearful and talking hatefully about other people, I cringe.

I am not some namby-pamby Ivory Tower kind of woman.  I shoveled cow manure as a child.  I know what hard physical work is. I know what poverty is, and sickness, and misery and loss. I guess you can tell that I have a temper and can get angry enough to speak my mind. 

So it isn’t because I am so sensitive and delicate that I can’t bear to hear a swear word or so nice that I have unrealistic expectations—but when you call yourself a “Christian” you owe a debt to someone very special. So either try your best to live up to it, please, or admit that you are not a Christian.  You just say you are.

How the Powers That Be Maintain the Deep State – An Interview With Mike Lofgren

June 2nd, 2017 by

http://www.truth-out.org/progressivepicks/item/34912-illicit-surveillance-and-the-deep-state-an-interview-with-mike-lofgren

Deep StateBy Leslie Thatcher,

Retired congressional staffer Mike Lofgren illuminates the shadowy influencers behind US politics in his incriminating new book, The Deep State. Explore in detail the involvement of Wall Street, Silicon Valley and the military-industrial complex in the decisions that will shape the future of the United States. Get a copy of this book by making a donation to Truthout today!

In The Deep State, author Mike Lofgren, whose 2011 commentary, “Goodbye to All That: Reflections of a GOP Operative Who Left the Cult,” remains the most-read article at Truthout.org, connects the dots between apparently disparate aspects of our current dystopia. “The deep state,” argues Lofgren is “the red thread” linking the “ideological syndrome” of McMansions; DC’s culture of careerist strivers; the financialization, deindustrialization and ultimate mutation of the US economy into “a casino with a tilted wheel”; the burgeoning of government secrecy even as individual privacy has been demolished; the consistency and persistence of unpopular policies regardless of which party wins elections; militarized foreign policy, “defense” and “security” establishments that thrive on failure and enjoy essentially unlimited funding whatever nostrums about the national debt and the necessity for austerity are being peddled for every other function of government; the prevalence of incompetence and ineptitude in government response to crises; unequal justice, including impunity for the wealthy and corporations, a corrupt Supreme Court and a strikingly punitive criminal legal system for ordinary people; legislative gridlock; perpetual war; political extremism and other ruinous epiphenomena.

Lofgren agreed to speak with retired Truthout editor Leslie Thatcher about his new book on January 27. The following interview has been edited for length and clarity.

Leslie Thatcher: Thanks so much, Mike, for talking with Truthout. First off, what do you want readers to know about your new book? Why should they read it?

Mike Lofgren: I think they should read it because we get a lot of pseudo-information from corporate media that focuses very intently on the horse race between the two parties to the exclusion of more fundamental issues. Meanwhile, regardless of who is elected, government policy regarding issues like economic regulation or national security doesn’t change very much. I wasn’t totally satisfied that my first book, The Party Is Over: How Republicans Went Crazy, Democrats Became Useless, and the Middle Class Got Shafted, answered the question, “What is it that happened to the US in the last 30 to 40 years such that both parties seem to enact the same policies on big things like militarism, Wall Street, or trade?” While there are considerable differences between the parties on cultural and identity issues, there is very little difference in the big money issues, which is what a certain class of people who run the country are really interested in and that is what I try to explain.

You describe the “deep state” as the iceberg beneath the visible tip of the official US government “that is theoretically controllable via elections.” How does it function and what are its main components?

It’s a hybrid association of elements of government and parts of top-level finance and industry effectively able to govern the US without reference to the consent of the governed. Its nodes are the national security agencies of government, Treasury, the FISA [Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act] court (whose dealings are so mysterious not even most members of Congress know what the court is doing).

Deep StateMike Lofgren. (Photo: Alisa Lofgren)Most congress-people just vote according to what their party leadership tells them. Membership in the deep state in Congress boils down to the leadership and a handful of Defense and Intelligence Committee members. The private part of the deep state is the military-industrial complex Eisenhower warned about in 1961. There is also Wall Street and its symbiotic relationship with the Treasury and its regulatory agencies, like the SEC [Security and Exchange Commission]. People like Hank Paulson, who worked for [George W.] Bush, or Tim Geithner, who worked for Obama, are essentially interchangeable: Their worldview is much the same despite being of different political parties.

And then, of course, you have Silicon Valley – necessary for the technology which totally enables the NSA [National Security Agency] (which informants have told me couldn’t do its job without that technology). Silicon Valley is also significant as an enormous center of new wealth. You also see their self-glorifying statements about being innovative disruptors. They certainly are disrupting the economy. There is little evidence that technology will do anything in a macroeconomic sense other than concentrating wealth even further so that we’re left with CEOs on top and everyone else in the gig economy, like contractors for Uber.

How did you personally become aware of the deep state and what is the explanatory power of its existence for understanding current affairs?

I became aware that there were forces at work in the period between 9/11 and the invasion of Iraq that were bigger than the government and were operating on their own compass heading. We have a supposedly free press, but when you saw people like Phil Donahue and Ashley Banfield fired or demoted for being critical of invasion, you have to wonder. I’m pretty sure nobody in the White House picked up the phone and asked somebody at NBC to fire those folks, but the NBC executives were sufficiently conditioned to perform a service to the government by firing those folks and creating the propaganda for the war.

In the correspondence leading up to this interview, you mentioned “developments in the past six months that have surprised even me, and not in a good way.” Can you briefly outline what these are and their pertinence to The Deep State‘s premise?

I should correct that: They’ve surprised me in a mixed way. Certainly, six months ago I would not have imagined Donald Trump had as much staying power as he’s demonstrated. Trump in many ways represents the culmination of the deep state. He’s a plutocrat who’s used the laws, such as business bankruptcy procedures, for his own gain and yet in a way he is frightening people in the deep state because he is so far out, that he’s upsetting their business model. The standard model is for billionaires to dictate the candidates’ positions on free trade, austerity etc. On the upside: He is scaring the daylights out of members of the deep state. On the downside: He’s moving away from the current model of corporate oligarchy with a façade of free elections. Instead, he’s using all the populist themes developed by the Republican Party in the past to keep their base happy, but he’s actually making promises to act on them and moving towards out-and-out fascism.

On the other hand, you have the [Bernie] Sanders campaign also scaring the daylights out of Democrats. He doesn’t have to go to David Geffen’s house or to Wall Street with his hat in his hand or fundraise among the glitterati. The last time I looked, his average donation was reported as less than $30. That upsets the whole notion of fundraising described by a New York Times report that half of all political donations came from just 158 families. Unfortunately, that’s the business model we’ve got post Citizens United. The Democrat pooh-bahs are clearly upset and Michael Bloomberg has said he would jump into the race only if Sanders won in the Democratic primaries: that tells me who his friend is and who his enemy is.

Obama appeared to have a similar fundraising model, but it was clear he was bought off in summer 2008 when he voted in favor of the FISA Amendments Act [a bill to indemnify the telecommunications companies over participation in illegal surveillance] that he previously had said he would filibuster. By then he had already taken on John Brennan as a foreign policy adviser. The extraordinary loyalty and indulgence Obama has shown Brennan was demonstrated in his waiting until it was politically possible to get Brennan appointed CIA director, after which he then promptly embarrassed Obama with the scandal of spying on the Senate Intelligence Committee as they were writing a report on CIA torture. Although he made all kinds of bombastic statements about expecting an apology from the committee chair, Sen. Dianne Feinstein, Brennan ended up apologizing instead to Senator Feinstein. Yet Obama sticks by him.

You trace the transformation of Washington, DC, and the explosion of the deep state to the 1970s, the Powell Memo and the explosion of tax-exempt foundations and its origins to the secret development of the A-bomb. A recent National Review article uses the term, “Government of, by, and for Special Interests,” and ascribes that to progressive politics and the New Deal. Are these views reconcilable?

Well, their view is certainly not my view. Enough people know that something is wrong, even if they can’t put their finger on exactly what it is or how it works, so the editors at the National Review have had to craft a counternarrative to muddy the waters; that’s all it is. For crying out loud, William Buckley Jr. came out of the CIA; I wouldn’t be surprised if he were part of Operation Mockingbird. Time-Life and other media outlets were on the payroll of the CIA during the 1950s. Their role was to reflect the CIA’s point of view. Buckley, after graduating from Yale, a favorite recruitment center for CIA, went into the CIA, but only for two years. Why? [CIA director Allen] Dulles would have gravitated to him because he was a Yale man and because his father was rich. It seems very possible that Dulles, or some other CIA executive, told Buckley he could do more for the cause by creating a conservative front group to push the CIA’s Cold War line and to denigrate the isolationist posture of conservatives like Sen. Robert Taft.

One of the inflection points you mention in the development of the deep state was the fall of the Berlin Wall. How did “the end of history” connect to the present dystopia?

Instinctively, you would have thought the end of the Cold War meant we could demobilize and become a normal country again, but apparently the Cold War had gone on so long and created so many institutions and so much infrastructure with no other purpose than the creation of new threats. The powers that be essentially directed the same Cold War state into the post-Cold War world. What I saw from my perch in Congress was that defense procurement continued exactly as before. They continued to buy expensive weapon systems designed to fight the Soviet Union.

I also think there was a psychological angle: Once we had defeated the Soviet Union and there was no alternative system to compete with, we could unleash unencumbered laissez-faire policies, what Naomi Klein calls the shock doctrine.

And you’ve seen where that’s led in Hungary. People deprived of any reasonable alternative have opted for fascism, just as they did in the 1930s.

I think you saw the same thing to an even greater extent in Russia. After the 1990s orgy of asset stripping, the Russian people were so disgusted they accepted a strongman like Putin who could at least keep the oligarchs from challenging the state.

In your book and elsewhere, you refer to the historical precedents similar to the conjuncture in the United States you describe in The Deep State – the French Third Republic, the ancient régime, the Hapsburgs, the Romanovs, ancient Rome, the USSR. You have emphasized that it is most important to consider how the United States arrived at its specific present circumstances, but is there one particular historical instance you would consider most salient?

Not really: History does not repeat itself. These are simply analogies. But a good analogy that is also relatively recent and deals with another state with an overdeveloped military-industrial complex is that of the USSR. There, in spite of all the propaganda organs, people simply gave up believing in the system. The development of US demographics – and particularly the new study of excess middle-aged white mortality – primarily due to alcoholism, drug abuse and suicide – which heightens the USSR analogy.

How does the deep state survive and even thrive in spite of its obvious failures from the war on drugs to the “war on terror,” from economic to political and social justice?

Well, although it doesn’t do much to help the res publica or the economy as a whole, it does help certain people. This circumstance creates a kind of perverse Darwinism in the short and medium term, so that harmful traits are the ones that are selected for. And most people simply don’t look at the long-term results of their actions, but mirror the typical corporate executive whose timeline is the next quarter’s results and how they will impact the price of the stocks he owns.

What is the position of finance in the deep state? What does it mean to “fight for an open economic system?”

A macro explanation of the trade deals of the last 25 years – NAFTA, CAFTA etc. and now the TPP [Trans-Pacific Partnership] – is to forget about tariff schedules and what textiles cost. These agreements are a bargain between the United States and other countries whereby the US gives privileged access to US markets in exchange for submission on foreign and economic policy. The powers that be are perfectly happy to destroy the economic seed corn in the USA in exchange for temporary dominance abroad. They’re willing to sacrifice Detroit for the UAE [United Arab Emirates].

As a congressional staffer, I presume you interacted regularly with people you would now consider operatives of the deep state. What can you tell us about them as people? What motivates them? What immunizes them so thoroughly from democratic concerns?

I think it’s hard to improve on Upton Sinclair’s dictum, “It is difficult to get a man to understand something, when his salary depends on his not understanding it.” I think they’re all about the logic that if it pays for their kids’ cornflakes and their scholarship fund, they will do it without their conscience bothering them too much.

So you don’t see them as malevolent?

Oh no, it’s much more banal than that.

Like Hannah Arendt on Eichmann?

Exactly, the banality of evil.

You mention the outsourcing of congressional staffing to ALEC [American Legislative Exchange Council] post-Gingrich in the book. Let’s take one concrete instance of US legislation – the 342-page USA Patriot Act of 2001, initially introduced by the Bush administration less than a week after September 11. Can you explain a little how the deep state would have been involved in its drafting and enactment and how it continues to serve the deep state’s – rather than Americans’ – interests? Also, what were your own thoughts at that time?

We can assume that all those provisions that didn’t quite get into all the crime and intelligence bills introduced earlier just sat on a shelf somewhere in the Justice Department and were dusted off. The Patriot Act was drafted by the government in an executive agency. Now what we have 15 years later is pretty much ALEC-template bills in statehouses – and even on Capitol Hill, legislative drafts originate with the tech industry or K Street so congressional staffers don’t have to worry their pretty little heads about drafting legislation.

You have elsewhere described the inequality of the US criminal legal system and the flat-out “corruption” of the Roberts court. Would your proposals to abolish corporate personhood and get money out of politics be adequate to remedy these abuses?

No single nostrum will be a miraculous panacea. But getting money out of politics is the precondition for anything else, including abolishing corporate personhood, enforcing anti-trust law and reforming health care. You have to align politicians’ incentives with the public interest rather than the interests of political donors.

Your second recommendation for downsizing or dismantling the deep state is to “sensibly redeploy and downsize the military and intelligence complex.” Andrew Bacevich – whom you cite extensively in your book – recently argued that there is no effective civilian control of the Pentagon. How then can we mobilize its downsizing, let alone the reallocation of resources to domestic infrastructure?

Congress doesn’t really attempt to exercise control. Getting money out of politics is also the first step in exercising civilian control of the military, because otherwise the donor base in the military-industrial complex has too much influence on policy.

With the deep state in control, have our elected government organs become purely ceremonial or do elections still make a difference?

There is a symbiotic relationship between the deep state and surface democracy. And the type of person who holds office does matter on the margins. Individual decisions do make a difference. The incentive structures for all concerned tend to be shared in a certain fashion because of careerist best interests. I’m not pointing to some massive conspiracy. All of this is going on in the light of day. Everyone knows who the Koch brothers are, General Dynamics etc. It’s just that most people do not see how it all works as a system and how we’ve been conditioned to look at it.

You advocate reform of US immigration policy …

This is impossible to effect at present … I’m a little different from most people I know in that I am appalled by what Trump says, but I also do not agree with unlimited immigration. Corporations love H-1B visas. Importing temporary labor is analogous to hiring strikebreakers during the coal strikes 100 years ago. Unlimited supply of labor undermines unions and wages. This is not to condemn the people seeking the jobs, just as the strikebreakers 100 years ago were desperate to support their families, but the H-1B visa system has become perverse – a form of corporate-sponsored human trafficking.

But when the US has, by Washington Consensus programs and trade treaties, destroyed livelihoods in neighboring countries or, by its militarized foreign policy and/or support for rapacious dictatorships, destroyed physical security for populations in targeted countries, don’t we have some responsibility toward those so displaced?

Oh, it’s our fault to a significant degree. Ever since 1954 and the overthrow of Arbenz in Guatemala, we’ve been destabilizing Latin America. Of course, their population wants to come here. I argue for a different foreign policy, but we are where we are and the problem started decades ago. You can’t ask a worker in Toledo or Detroit or Flint to make sacrifices for the greater good of humanity when people in Palo Alto and Wall Street are not willing to give up anything.

With – as you note – the United States living off its principal and saddled with a deeply entrenched, incompetent and unaccountable management, how can we respond to a true existential crisis such as anthropogenic climate disruption?

It’s difficult to do anything that matters, especially with respect to a perceived longer-term problem, because we’ve adopted the corporate model for government as [Gov.] Rick Snyder did in Michigan. People are paid to look to the short term. Campaigns that are financed by rich donors tend to condition politicians to think short term.

You’ve been very careful to distinguish the deep state from an active, conscious conspiracy, but is it possible or likely in your view that some of its operatives have been involved in, for lack of a better word, plots to dismantle democracy?

They wouldn’t put it that way. They think they’re legitimately working on political issues. But how it impacts the public is another matter. What the governor of Michigan did was a conspiracy against democracy. He needed to appoint emergency managers with autocratic powers because he needed to undo municipal government and carry out his pro-corporate agenda. His emergency manager plan was rejected in a public referendum, so the Republican-controlled legislature attached the proposal as a rider to an appropriations bill. Therefore it was no longer subject to referendum. Rick Snyder and his cronies are hamstringing the ability of local governments to respond to democratic concerns and consciously doing so in order to pay for the tax cuts they gave to corporations. It was a conscious effort to undo democracy in Michigan, and it ended up poisoning children. What happened was nothing more than racketeering, in my judgment.

You periodically excoriate the US public in the book for failures of good citizenship, but you finish by suggesting that if we “disenthrall ourselves,” our ability to live sensibly and peacefully in the world as it is will ensue. How do you suggest those already disenthralled – in which I would include most Truthout readers – proceed?

Most Truthout readers are not the majority in this country. It’s partly a media problem. Forty years ago, commercial media was dominated by 50 to 60 companies. Now it’s half a dozen. There’s been this tremendous concentration in corporate media and those companies left are not interested in telling the public long, complex stories about where taxpayer money goes. What they do give the public is Kim Kardashian. It’s not that the American people aren’t bright enough to understand, but many of them don’t have the time to consult alternative media and they’ve been subject to a powerful conditioning program the last few decades. There have been cases in the past when uneducated people – farmers, coal miners in the early 1900s – clearly understood the essential economic relationships at work in the country, and significant reforms like wage and hour laws, prohibitions of child labor and collective bargaining resulted. We did it before and we can do it again. That gives me hope for the future.

Key Information! Everyone Read This

InformationBy Anna Von Reitz

Lately, the alternative news world has been awash with talk about “Human Rights” and “Natural Law” and quite a number of people have been misled about this and are parroting it as the Next Great Thing.  In fact, it is old as the hills and nothing you want to be involved in, much less subjected to.  Let me explain…..and bear with me. 

Bankers and lawyers don’t like the Ten Commandments, the Bible, or the Land Law that goes with it.  They may individually subscribe to Christianity, Judaism, or Islam — all of which are supposed to function under the Law of Moses — but for very practical reasons they want to waffle and weasel around the requirements of Land Law when it comes to business dealings.

Land Law doesn’t allow binding contracts.  It respects the Law of Free Will.  It forbids usury and insurance.  And it is frustratingly local and subjective in nature.

That, in a nutshell, is what has driven the wholesale shift into Admiralty/Maritime Law.

The bankers and lawyers and their servants, the politicians, want binding contracts that can be insured and guaranteed, they want profit on whatever risk is left, they don’t give a crap about free will and they want something that is “standardized” to work with as a form of law so that they don’t have to cope with any irritating local laws or restrictions when it comes to administering the courts—-and shoving all this down your throat.

And so, that is what has come to be in this country, despite the fact that virtually all the men responsible for this travesty know full-well that the American people are owed not only Land Law but the Law of the Land, and even though at least 90% of them confess belief in Christianity, Judaism, or Islam. 

It appears that our hypocrisy knows no end.

Land Law functions on covenants, like marriage, and good faith agreements—neither of which are contracts. 

Covenants are of a sacred nature, because they are entered into with God as a Witness and Party to the agreement.  It becomes a sacred matter as a result and no man may change or abrogate or interfere with it as a result.  Covenants are binding for that reason, but they are not contracts.

Good faith agreements are exactly as they say— agreements made between men, either verbally or most often in writing, which may bear an appearance similar to contracts, but they are only subject to “good faith performance”.

Jeremiah as in “Book of Jeremiah” is very instructive on this point in two respects. As the prophet laments, it is not given to man to know or control even one step.  We don’t know and can’t guarantee what happens to us or around us for the next ten minutes, much less the next thirty years, so it is apparent that we cannot reliably make contracts promising future repayments or performance of service, either. 

Jeremiah, the prophet, also does something peculiar that sheds more light on the topic.  He buys a plot of land that he has good cause to think that he will never be able to enjoy in his lifetime. This is instructive, too, because it highlights the “faith” part of “good faith agreements”. 

Good faith agreements rely upon our will and good intent to carry through and do whatever it is we agree to do, perform whatever service we agree to perform, and to do so without fail to the extent that we are able.  It also implies our faith that God will allow us to carry through on our good intentions, subject to His Will.  That in turn implies that we can’t make Good Faith Agreements to do things that are immoral or unlawful or just plain bad.

These “moral entanglements” are bad enough, but it is the “to the extent that we are able” portion of Good Faith Agreements that hangs up the bankers and lawyers to a point of apoplexy.  

They don’t want to accept the limits of human abilities and the unknowns and variables of all our lives, even though they know full-well that these are the conditions we actually live under.  They most certainly don’t want to rely on the honesty and good faith of their customers and neighbors and they don’t want to admit that we all need the support of what our Forefathers called “Divine Providence” to make good on our agreements.  That makes things too uncertain.  Too variable.  Too….well, dependent on luck, faith, good weather, God, and other things that lawyers and bankers and politicians can’t control.

Worst of all, in this shifting, changeable, stubbornly willful world of external realities, Land Law doesn’t allow usury or insurance.

Usury is the profit made off of lending. Jews are forbidden from making profit from lending to another Jew, but not from lending to Christians, Buddhists, and so on. The same basic kinds of considerations extend in Sharia Law. You can cheat an infidel if you want to, but not another Muslim.  Actual, sincere, observing Christians can’t practice usury at all against anyone.  We are not only called upon to lend freely and without profit to ourselves for doing so, but to give freely with no thought of return.

So that is why certain “Christian” kings during the Dark Ages and Middle Ages forced Jews into the banking business, to do the dirty-work of usury for them against their own Christian subjects.  Got that?  “Christian” kings can’t profit from lending money to other Christians or anyone else, but Jews can lend the King’s money to anyone but another Jew and profit from the transaction and divvy up the proceeds with the King. No problem.

The Jews didn’t get into the banking business because they wanted to practice usury.  They got into the banking business because the so-called “Christian” Monarchs of feudal Europe wanted to profit from usury and needed agents to do their dirty work.  These Kings and Queens didn’t want their only hands dirtied with usury — though they wanted the profits— and they didn’t want to be besmirched with the gambling aspects of insurance schemes, but they wanted to be insured….

So all these people running around blaming Jewish and Muslim bankers for the situation need to look deeper and higher, and realize that it is their own “Christian” leaders and politicians who have failed them.  If the so-called Christian Monarchs and politicians were actually acting as Christians and according to the standards established by Jesus, none of these evils would exist. 

All Christian banks would function as non-profit institutions and Good Faith Agreements would be the only rule.  Insurance wouldn’t even be necessary. 

When disaster struck, the worldwide Christian community would pull together to repair the damage and make good the losses for free.  And because there would be no usury allowed, only service fees, banks would be capitalized by governments and by donations from philanthropists who were willing to accept the risks of lending in good faith with no profit to themselves.

This change, in turn, would bring back morality and nobility to Mankind, and a sense of community and “joint venture” — where each man and each woman would feel the desire to succeed, to hold their head up high and contribute to the best of their ability — and when they were defeated in that effort by time or fate, would equally feel no shame about turning to everyone else and saying, “Please help me!  My daughter is sick…. I need a car so I can join a car pool to get to work…..an early frost wiped out my crops in the field…..a wildfire burned down my home…..”

And as for the Jews and the Muslims? 

If Christians actually lived up to being Christians, the Jews and Muslims would quickly observe the health and love of the Christian community, the good service and kindness given to everyone—including Jews and Muslims—–and they would think: well, I can practice usury against people of other faiths, but there isn’t much market for it and I don’t feel good about it. It’s dirty somehow.  Not worthy of my soul’s highest calling…. I want to be free and big enough in my soul to lend without profit and give without taking back…..

Land Law is an attempt to bring these three great faith communities together under a common standard that all can use and thrive under.  Land Law is the only truly fair, truthful, and realistic form of Law that there is, other than the Law of Heaven.  Yet, for six generations, our governments have avoided and weaseled around using Land Law.

How have they done that?  By impersonation.

The corporations providing us with government services have arbitrarily given us a “PERSON” so that we can operate in commerce (business conducted between incorporated entities) as their very own franchises and share our profits with them as taxes and mortgages and licenses and fees in exchange for the “privilege” of being able to borrow money at interest, obtain insurance policies to cover our risks, and secure bankruptcy protection under their limited liability provisions.  Also in “exchange”— though we are never told any of this — we become subject to them and obligated to obey their every law and statute. 

Which points up the tip of the iceberg.

Maritime and Admiralty Law deals exclusively with unincorporated businesses known as “Persons” operating in international trade and with “PERSONS” which are incorporated businesses operating in international commerce.  There isn’t a single provision anywhere in Maritime or Admiralty Law for any judge in that entire system to address a living man or woman.  That’s why the perpetrators and proponents of Maritime and Admiralty Law have to distribute all these “Persons” and “PERSONS” named after us, and get us to accept them and assume that they are our responsibility.

They literally cannot address a living man or woman as a living man or woman, because living people don’t exist in their court system.  That’s why they get so testy when you show up claiming to be a living man or woman and talking about the “Constitution” which has nothing to do with them.  What they call —when forced to do so— “private natural persons” — are not subject to their jurisdiction and, what really frosts their cake, neither are the assets of private, natural persons. 

The Territorial United States shanghaied the lawful Trade Names of Americans and arbitrarily redefined them all as Territorial Foreign Situs Trusts.  This happened under FDR in the single biggest act of treason, unlawful conversion, Breach of Trust, and brute criminality in human history. 

In a twinkling, with nobody’s understanding or consent, the Trade Name of “John Henry Markham” a farmer from Purdy, Ohio, was magically redefined as a “vessel” in the Queen’s Merchant Marine Service also, by coincidence of course, named “John Henry Markham” — and what happened to the living man? 

He was also redefined as an unpaid volunteer Warrant Officer known as a “Withholding Agent” responsible for paying all the upkeep on “John Henry Markham” and collecting taxes from “John Henry Markham”. 

Besides giving the rats a claim on all of the “John Henry Markham” assets, including his name, body, copyrights, home, and land, this action by FDR subjected “John Henry Markham” to the statutory law of the Territorial United States.

FDR had absolutely no authority to do any of this, granted or otherwise; apologists have tried to excuse him and the Democratic Party and the King of England by pleading “emergency powers”—- but in fact there are no provisions for the existence of any emergency powers then or now, and it just comes down to Breach of Trust, embezzlement, betrayal, and treason.

A few years later, the Territorial United States allowed the Municipal United States to similarly impersonate the living people and states of the union, to create “Municipal franchises” operating as “JOHN HENRY MARKHAM” and now, most recently, “JOHN H. MARKHAM”.  These various incorporated entities can represent almost anything— Cestui Que Vie trusts, construction trusts, cooperatives, LLC’s, or Mr. Obama’s favorite, public transmitting utilities. 

The important take home point is that these “NAMES” are all being used to impersonate you.  They are reducing you to a Territorial “Person” or a Municipal “PERSON” both of which are subject to foreign statutory law and which operate in international jurisdiction and neither of which are owed any protected status or constitutional guarantees at all.  These “persons” are all operated under the Law of the Sea, not the Law of the Land. 

Not being alive, these “persons” are not subject to the uncertainties of life. Known as “legal fictions” they only exist by a form of mutual consent akin to the suspension of belief required by Walt Disney animations. Also unlike you, these “persons” can enter into binding contracts, unilateral contracts, implied contracts, commercial contracts, maritime contracts, admiralty contracts galore— which is what the lawyers like, because contracts generate controversies like cats generate kittens.  There is far more work and finagling available under Maritime and Admiralty Law and less risk of hanging, so attorneys love it.

Unlike you “artificial persons” can be guaranteed and insured and licensed and bonded— which is what the bankers and risk managers like.  They can also be subjected to usury and taxation, which both the bankers and the politicians want. Such persons can be murdered, raped, robbed, defrauded, keel-hauled, kidnapped, press-ganged, and tortured without mercy—-and all without accountability—and they routinely are subjected to such gross mistreatment.

Last but not least, the laws governing such “persons” can be standardized and made into a Uniform Code, so that the corporate tribunals responsible for administering such persons don’t have to know any actual law at all.  The vermin responsible can hire executive managers, teach them their own statutory law and code, and live totally outside the Public Law in a virtual kingdom created of pirates, for pirates and by pirates.  This all enables a “judge” in their system to move from one state or county or even country to another, stealing homes and picking pockets as he goes, without the bother of learning a whole new system of local law.

Obviously, for many reasons having to do mainly with robbing you senseless and doing it safely and conveniently, criminally inclined interests have removed you from your native birthright political standing as an American owed the Law of the Land, and by force, fraud, and deceit they have entrapped you into “accepting” their gifts of “PERSONS” and have subjected you to their foreign Territorial and Municipal “law”.

They use the process of impersonation to mischaracterize who and what you really are and also use it to hide behind themselves. Behind the mask of “personhood” the perpetrators can seek bankruptcy protection when they get caught poisoning the apple fritters for profit. 

No honest man having good intent and being in his right mind would ever freely choose to operate under the Law of the Sea and that’s why our Forefathers stipulated that we and our states all function under Land Law, and specifically American Common Law. 

This is also why when employees of the foreign Territorial and Municipal governments “come ashore” they are required to observe what they call “The Law of the Land”—- that is, The Constitution, with respect to us and our property interests. 

It is far more convenient and far more profitable for them to “mistake” us as either Territorial “Persons” or Municipal “PERSONS” than it is for them to deal with their obligations owed to the living, breathing people.  So they put on their blinders every day and mount the Bench and act as criminals against us and they pretend that we agreed to this. 

We’ve been trusting and gullible enough to let them get away with all this impersonation Shinola— especially since they have operated under Color of Law, and have pretended to be or to “represent” our lawful government— and have, thus disguised, been able to impose and presume upon us and also to liberally engage in extortionate racketeering against our states and people.

So— bringing it all full circle with regard to “Human Rights” and “Natural Law”….

Look up the legal definition of “human”. 

There you will see that a “human” in legal terminology is not a man or a woman, but an animal or a “monster”. 

So if you allow the vermin to call you a “human” you are admitting to being far less than a man, and owed only such consideration as the King in his Mercy might grant a farmyard animal and such law as the SPCA might lobby for. 

As for “Natural Law” that is another name for “Law of the Jungle” wherein the strong are allowed to mercilessly prey upon the weak and the only the tooth and the claw prevail and only the very fleet-footed escape. 

Gee, we object to being impersonated and treated as incorporated legal fiction entities, so now they offer us the status of animals and monsters as remedy?  We object to the despicable Law of the Sea, so now they offer us “Natural Law” instead?

I have a counter-offer for them: 

We are living people, men and women, and we are owed the American Common Law. 

Please take your Territorial and Municipal “law” along with your “human” rights and your “Natural Law” and shove all these up your butt, sideways, like an insurmountably large suppository. 

Thank you, very much.

Dear Lucretia Mortgage Relief and The Rest of the Story

Mortgage Relief

 By Anna Von Reitz

Dear Lucretia, 

The federal government has claimed that you were a federal government employee throughout your working life, but once you retire, you retire—-and you are owed your pension and your freedom from any further presumption of federal obligation or employment.  

You simply send a letter to the State Secretary of State and inform him or her that you have retired and have returned to your birth right political status as an American state national.  They owe you your retirement just like any other big corporation owes its employee pensions. 

If you are like my Mother and offended that she was ever considered to be—or tricked into serving as—- a federal citizen at all, you can express your ire, too. It’s time these “public servants” got a wake up call.  

If you have children, this is a good time to repent of the mistakes that so many of us where misled or forced to make when we misidentified our children as “US citizens” and unwittingly “enrolled” them as such at the hospital when they were born.  My Mother provided a sworn testament that she recorded in the public record, stating that she had been confused by the similar jargon and that the only “United States” we ever were part of was the fifty states of the Union.  I recommend that all Mothers do this for their children.  I have done it for my son.

If you actually worked for the federal government the portion of your pension that is based on federal employment is taxable, but if like so many of us, you never actually worked for the federal government or only served in the military for a couple years, etc., so that the amount of pension money from actual federal employment is negligible, you are eligible to claim your exemption from federal income taxes.  You send a Letter of Revocation of Election to the Commissioners of both the IRS and the Internal Revenue Service and tell them that you revoke your election to pay federal income taxes beginning with October the first of last year or any prior year you choose.  

Internal Revenue

Office of the Commissioner

Room 3000

1111 Constitution Avenue NW

Washington, DC 20204- 0002

Commissioner of the Internal Revenue Service

Department of the Treasury

P.O. Box 480 

Holtsville, New York 11742-0480

If you follow the process I set out for everyone last month in the article called “How to Correct Your Political Status and Why” you are also eligible to claim your exemption from the mortgage that has been placed on your home.  I know this will be hard to grasp, but you the living woman, have never had a mortgage in your life. You have never owed any property taxes, either.  Why? Because you are, as a natural born American, the actual landlord.  

The mortgage is owed by a Municipal United States STATE franchise corporation that is merely named after you or your husband or both.  You have been tricked into paying off ITS mortgage.  If you are now elderly and unable to pay the mortgage because your income is fixed and hasn’t kept pace with inflation, or because of medical bills or other issues, you can force those responsible for entrapping you and misinforming you to pay for both the mortgage and the court case costs. 

Now I want you to follow along very carefully.  You are going to send your IRS Form 56 appointing Mr. Mnuchin your Fiduciary and the copy of your Birth Certificate properly endorsed and “surrendered” to the U.S. Treasury and a letter to Mr. Mnuchin telling him that you are waiving any benefit of the Public Charitable Trust or Limited Liability insurance  and that you are instead operating under Private Indemnity Bond AMRI00001 for your state of the union.  You are going to send this to him via Registered Mail. All this is covered in the article “How to Correct Your Political Status and Why” published April 2017 on my website, www.annavonreitz.com

Go to the Post Office and get a red and white Registered Mail Label and the white service receipt and the instructions you will need to send a letter using Registered Mail.  

Each red and white Registered Mail Label has a unique nine digit number associated with it.  Typically, the whole number will read something like this:  RA 123 456 789 US.   You are going to tell Mr. Mnuchin that you need him to do two things: (1) discharge and settle all debts related to  Social Security Masterfile Account #123-45-6789 (whatever SSN you have) and (2) set up a new Treasury Account using the number of your Registered Mail packet as the account number.  

Now go to a print shop and order yourself a self-inking red ink stamp. 

That stamp needs to read like this: 

ACCEPTED FOR VALUE EXEMPT FROM LEVY

by:_____________________________________

     all rights reserved, Without Recourse

Exemption ID: [ fill in your SSN without dashes]

Deposit to US Treasury Charge the same to

YOUR NAME [ written FIRST MIDDLE LAST] and YOUR SSN with dashes

Private Indemnity Bond # AMRI00001 (your birth state like Colorado)

Registered Treasury Acct. #  (your Registered Mail Number)

In the end, it’s going to look like this, only with you own numbers and information filled in: 

ACCEPTED FOR VALUE EXEMPT FROM LEVY

by:_____________________________________

     all rights reserved, Without Recourse

Exemption ID: 123456789

Deposit to US Treasury Charge the same to

JOHN MICHAEL DOE 123-45-6789

Private Indemnity Bond # AMRI00001 Idaho

Registered Treasury Acct. # RE 123 453 673 US

You put this stamp on the front and the back of a copy of the docket sheet — the first sheet of every pleading in your foreclosure case that shows the name of the court and the PLAINTIFF and the DEFENDANT and the Court Case Number.  Just put it right in the middle of a copy of the first filing you received. 

Now you are going to sign this stamp block by: Last Name, First Name Middle Name.   Like this: Doe, John Michael on the line above the words “all rights reserved, Without Recourse”. 

Do it both front and back of that first page and send that page back to the Clerk of Court Registered Mail.  

This gives that Clerk all the information that he or she needs to discharge the Bid Bond in that Foreclosure Case and return the property to you and release the case.  Request re-conveyance of the property in a letter addressed to the Clerk at the same time.  They should reply with a one-page Deed of Re-Conveyance that you then take to the Land Recording Office and record. In most cases you will need to wait 30 days and then file a Corrected Deed on the Deed of Re-Conveyance changing the NAME to your Upper and Lower Case Name and making the address an “in care of” address or changing it to a different mailing address entirely.  This will complete the change over of the records. 

If you are African American they may try to challenge this, but you hang tight and claim your Equal Civil Rights guaranteed under Title 42 and the Brother’s Keeper Clause of Title 18 USC 241 and 242 if they do.  

If they continue to give you any trouble, you are going to go to the IRS website at www.irs.gov/forms and you are going to order a Form 1096 and a Form 1099A and a Form 1040 V. 

Form 1096 is a cover letter that just tells the IRS what kind(s) of other forms you are enclosing with it. 

Form 1099A is a triplicate form with three copies each of three little coupon-like forms all attached together. 

Form 1040 V is a single Voucher form and again, it is just a little slip of paper about the size of a check that comes printed on the bottom of its instruction sheet.  You have to cut it free with a pair of scissors. 

Okay, you check off the kinds of forms you are sending on the 1096 cover letter:  1096, 1099, 1040V. 

The 1099A is called “Acquisition or Abandonment of Secured Property”. 

Now the first piece of property you want to claim is your own trust account. 

The first box on the 1099A asks the LENDER’s name and address.  The LENDER is YOUR NAME, sent in care of your normal mailing address.  LENDER’s ID number is YOUR SSN without dashes.  The BORROWER’s NAME is the Department of the Treasury, 1500 Pennsylvania Avenue NW, Washington, DC 20220.  The Account Number box is going to be your SSN Without Dashes/Your Registered Treasury Account Number (the Registered Mail Number you used).  Box Number 1 is going to be the File Date (not your actual birthday) found on your Birth Certificate.  The Balance and Fair Market Value are going to be “Unknown”.  Box 5 you leave blank.  Box 6 you write: Assumed Names Related to Trust Account at 31 USC 1321, being claimed per 31 USC 1322 by Beneficiary.   

The second Form 1099A on that sheet of three is where you claim your house back. 

At the top of the form it asks for the name of the LENDER and their address.  The LENDER is YOUR NAME sent in care of your normal mailing address.  LENDER’s ID number is YOUR SSN without dashes.  The BORROWER’s NAME is the name of the bank or mortgage servicing company that is foreclosing on you and their business address.  Under that you will see an “Account Number— write YOUR SSN without any dashes/Your new Registered Treasury Account : RE 123 345 598 US (whatever it turns out to be) and the Borrower’s Account Number— whatever they use to mark the mortgage account in their system when they send bills to you. 

The date of the lender’s acquisition will be the first year of the mortgage.  The balance of principal outstanding will be: “unknown” and so will the “fair market value” .  You will leave Item 5 blank because you don’t know the arrangements made in YOUR behalf.  Item 6 will be the description of the property you are claiming— Lot and Block or Street address, however it appears in the mortgage and foreclosure paperwork.  

 

You can use the third 1099 A on that sheet to claim back any other property you have a valid interest in.  I’d suggest that you claim the Court Case — again, the LENDER is YOUR NAME, the BORROWER is the Court name and address, the “account” is the Court Case Number, the year is whenever the foreclosure started, the balance and fair market value are unknown, and the description is: “Foreclosure of Property Case and Bid Bond”. 

Basically, any bill that gets sent to LUCRETIA is a bill that you are exempt from having to pay. 

Any bill that you get addressed to LUCRETIA can be discharged using your little stamp and signing it  Last Name, First Middle,—- once you get things straight with the Treasury and reclaim your birthright. 

Now, the IRS is your friend.  They are going to do all the work of researching everything for you and collecting on all that is owed to you.  You are going to pay them for all this service by issuing a 1040 V.  This is the little coupon-like voucher you have to cut off the bottom of the instruction page that comes with it.  It is pretty self-explanatory.  You just use your red stamp on the back of the 1040V and you write: ” Use my pass through account to pay any taxes or charges and to  research claims and perform

 collections” above the stamp information and you sign it as you always do for your stamp, Last Name, First Middle.  

You leave the amount blank because neither you nor the IRS has any idea how much this investigation/prosecution/tax payment is going to cost— and yes, this is like giving them a blank check; however, they are sworn to serve you and your trust and have to account to the Treasury for their charges, so all things considered it is the most expeditious way for everyone to operate right now and in time to save your house if the Court Clerk is either too stubborn or ignorant to do the right thing. 

You fold up your 1096, your three (or more) 1099A Forms, your stamped 1040V, and you send the whole thing in Registered Mail to:  Internal Revenue Service CID  at Post Office Box 192, Covington, Kentucky 41050. 

Now I know it is shocking to think of the IRS as your friend and ally, but that’s the way it is.  And I know this LOOKS like a lot of work and complexity, but it really isn’t.  The forms are simple and worst part is waiting for the IRS to send them.  It takes a week or two sometimes. 

This process and information — both that contained in “How to Correct Your Political Status and Why” and this information that is the follow-up of it, will profoundly change your relationship with the “federal government” and your life.  Some people go hog wild and try to do crazy things that are not allowed and they get into trouble as a result.  I want to caution you against doing anything extravagant or unreasonable or vindictive. 

This is information provided to do justice and nothing else.  It is provided to you as an elderly woman who has been loyal to this country and worked hard all your life to protect you and to save you from losing your home.  This information and the power to discharge debts addressed to YOUR NAME has to be used in Good Faith or you will end up in federal jail.

So what do I mean by Good Faith?  The way you would want to be treated.  Let me give you some examples. 

It is fair for you to discharge a mortgage on your principle dwelling when you need to do so: you are elderly and can’t keep up, you are sick and can’t afford it, your business has failed, you went through an unpleasant divorce…..there are all sorts of valid reasons that you might need to do this, but, you wouldn’t do it just for a lark or go out and buy up ten luxury vacation properties and plead necessity for discharging all of them.  That’s not reasonable or prudent or fair.  That is not “Good Faith”. That is a purposeful manipulation that isn’t allowed and you will get in trouble for it. 

It is fair for you to discharge utility bills that you cannot afford.  Again, you are elderly or sick or just starting out and struggling really hard and for whatever good, decent, actual reason need to “let go of the rope” — use your stamp.  You’ve been a Good Joe and done your part for 79 years.  Nobody has any right to complain if you kick back now and discharge all your utility bills so long as they are public utilities.  In most places that means electrical, water, waste management, and gas.  

Same thing with your car payments, college debts, medical bills, property taxes.  It doesn’t mean that you should run out and buy a Lexus and two Hummers and charge them off against the U.S. Treasury, but if it’s hard for you to pay for your 2015 Chevy that you need to get to work, or too much for your family to pay tuition, or you got hit with a medical bill you just can’t cope with— then by all means, six generations of Americans have suffered so that you could not have to worry about that, so that you could get back on your feet after an illness, a divorce, a business failure, or so many other things that can happen. 

We did not suffer and “loan” our resources so that 79 year old women could be kicked out of their homes by foreign banks and attacked by out of control government agencies.  There’s a line— a fine line—- between what is good and what is bad, what is fair and what is unjust.  Somewhere in our own hearts and minds we know where that line is. Pay attention to it and you will find that friendship and decency still abide, that you are free and you are safe, and that the foreclosures and tax debts and so many other things that have been oppressive weights and worries for you, can go away. 

At your age there are often maintenance issues with a house or car that you need to fix, but you are kept so burdened down with light bills and heat bills and mortgages and whatever else, that you can’t keep your home safe and in repair.  Use your Treasury Account to pay the things that can be paid with that, and use your private money to take care of the rest.  I know seniors who are facing a choice between paying the mortgage or eating.  Charge back the mortgage and buy that organic grapefruit, Lucretia. 

You and your husband and your parents and grandparents all earned it.  There is no reason to feel bad or ashamed or like you are getting an unearned handout.  You are just flipping a switch and learning to operate your own business in a different way and accessing resources you didn’t know you had.

Everyone needs to know that there are those who do have to pay federal taxes and can’t — at this point in their lives — claim their exemption.  Actual federal employees both civilian and military have to pay income taxes, for example.  Black Americans never received their actual state national political status, so their route to freedom and access to their resources is a bit different. Certain other categories of people can’t do this — foreigners seeking political asylum, actual wards of the government such as people who have been permanently hospitalized for mental illness, and other such actual dependents.  

But for most of us, the time has come to become aware of the history and those reliefs and remedies that are available at this time, while we work toward a systemic end to all mortgages worldwide.

Government Financial Tactics, very important thing to comprehend

May 30th, 2017 by

CAFR1 NATIONAL POST

by Walter Burien – CAFR1.com 

Governments who were building up massive cash stashes in the 70’s, 80’s, and 90’s, they needed parking zones for that cash. What governments created to allow for these “Parking zones” was to turn cash stashes into liability zones for self investment. (well set in place, come the 2000’s)

TWO PRIMARY EXAMPLES ARE:

 

  1. SELF INSURANCE. Create a fund where cash is transferred into a fund designated to pay insurance claims. The traditional coverage was the annual cost for a liability coverage policy from an insurance company. The self-funding fund account now gave the ability for the local government to stash much cash where the “return” from the fund was designated to meet “projected” liability claims to be paid. So if the local government projects liability claims to be paid at say $250,000, then at a projected return of say 5% is used, that means they justify a balance in the fund of $5,000,000.00 (5-million). Now if they use a “projected” return of 2.5%, then a fund balance of $10,000,000.00 (10-million). If they projected claim payments to be $500,000 and return at 2.5%, then a fund balance of $20,000,000.00 or a $20,000,000.00 “Parking Zone” for the cash is created now designated as a liability.

 

  1. BOND ISSUES. The impression given to the public: Is our local governments stupid taking on more debt? Well, that can be as far from the truth as it gets. If cash is building in that local government, that local government may create a liability for a: Road Project; Recycling Plant; Pension liability, Sports Facility, Parking Building, Water Plant, etc., etc., etc. Well, you have to ask yourself: Who is “Funding” that Bond issue?

If the local government moves the cash from here to there (could be a bank; brokerage; Federal Investment; mutual fund; other enterprise operation owned by that local government or a combination of several) and then uses (directs) that cash to “Fund” their own bond issue, then the “cash” is transformed into a “liability” (repayment of the Bond issue) or a “Parking Zone” for the cash “with interest” building on it.

The public not knowing this technique just looks at their local government as being irresponsible spending fanatics sticking them as taxpayers with more debt when in reality that local government is sticking the taxpayer with paying interest on the “cash” that local government already collected.

Keep in mind the cash disappears from that local government’s operating budget balance sheets and reappears as a debt liability. If the local government moved $80,000,000 (80-million) to fund $80,000,000 (80-million) of their own debt, and in doing so it left their operating budget $25,000,000 (25-million) short, they now come back on the taxpayer saying: “We are $25,000,000 short on our operating budget and need to raise taxes to make up the difference”. In doing so, they are now “sticking” the taxpayer TWICE!

Local governments that do this make the following quote all so true:

TREASON: “Treason doth never prosper; what’s the reason? For if it prosper, none dare call it treason.” Sir John Harrington, 1561-1612

Olddogs Comments!

If America was suddenly overtaken with intelligence, Walter Burien would be our President, Marilyn Barnewall would be our Secretary of State, and Anna Von Reitz would be our Attorney General. Unfortunately, they would probably be murdered within a week because the Banking Cartel would panic. America, as a nation you are the dumbest bunch of self centered idiots ever conceived! One only needs to research the last one hundred years of our import export statics to know how it happened. People who allow the formation of governments to control their lives are stupid, stupid, stupid! If you do not posses the basics instincts to survive and love your family, and be a responsible human being, what good are you?

Templar Treaties

May 29th, 2017 by

http://www.paulstramer.net/

The Templars

By Anna Von Reitz

The Templars have had a “perpetual” treaty of “peace” and “friendship” and “amity” with us since 1794.  Let’s see…..that’s 223 years.  Are we being unreasonable in our expectation that everyone in your organization should know about this?  And act accordingly?

We have a copy.  The Holy See has a copy.  Her Royal Majesty has a copy.  The Doge of Venice has a copy.  The Grimaldi Family has a copy.  The Prince of Monaco has a copy.  The Liechtensteiners have a copy….. the list goes on.

Yet, despite this, members of the Temple have been rampaging around attacking us and pretending that we are someone — or to be more exact — some “thing” other than ourselves, and they have been using this preposterous presumption as an excuse to attack Treaty Partners to whom they owe perpetual amity and peace. 

Go figure. 

Now, some parties who assume they are being referenced in my note “To the Perpetrators” are bumping around claiming that the Queen is in danger.  What kind of nonsense is that?   

The Templars have not been honoring their treaty obligations in this country and have caused a lot of trouble instead.  The Bad Faith of members toward the American people has resulted in the Queen being in Breach of Trust.

Put bluntly, you are the problem, not us.

If you have ever seen a man trapped by a Chinese Knot, you know that the harder he struggles, the tighter it binds.  The more lies you tell, the harsher the condemnation.  The longer you refuse to abide by your treaty obligations, the worse your punishment will be. 

These Truths are part of the Universal Law set forth by our Creator and are no “laws” of men, therefore they are not subject to amendment or repeal, cannot be changed or reinterpreted or avoided.  And nobody judges you by giving Voice to the Universal Law, because in truth, you have condemned yourselves by what you have done in America on one hand, and by what you have failed to do on the other.

If the Queen is in trouble, it’s because she is in gross Breach of Trust, and if she is in gross Breach of Trust, it is because the members of the Temple Bar have violated their treaty obligations owed to the Americans and have run amok and behaved as lawless brigands on our shores.  

The misrepresentations of those who have owed us Good Faith service have resulted in our states and people being repeatedly victimized as purported sureties in fraudulently created international bankruptcies. These frauds upon the states, the people, and also upon the probate and bankruptcy courts have not been created by the victims of these schemes who clearly did not benefit from them.

All of this has been done by members of the Temple Bar and Inns of Court who have abused their positions of trust and violated the obligations of their long-standing treaties with us.

When the Truth comes, what is false must pass away.  So it is written and so it must be. 

We are not causing any trouble by claiming the land and the labor that is ours by natural right, nor by refusing to be victimized again by those we depended on as Treaty Partners owing us “perpetual friendship”. 

Rather, the trouble is the result of Shysters writing tickets on our credit without our knowledge or permission, and Trustees who have fallen so far down on the job that they must be halfway to China and somewhere near the center of the Earth by now.

There is no excuse for remaining ignorant about the American government coop when all you have to do is read Anna’s site. Start from the beginning and read every article, then tell everyone you know how their government has been hijacked. You do not owe this scumbag corporation anything, period! But you do have to arm yourself with knowledge, otherwise it’s who has the most firepower

The Templars
