I’M SORRY I BROUGHT IT UP

North Korean Humor…

STUPID

Kim Jung Un had NO military experience whatsoever before Daddy made him a four-star general.

This snot-nosed twerp had never accomplished anything in his life that would even come close to military leadership.

He hadn’t even so much as led a Cub Scout troop, coached a sports team, or commanded a military platoon.

So he is made the “Beloved Leader” Of North Korea.

 Terrific!


THEN,

STUPID

We took an arrogant phony community organizer, who had never worn a uniform, never ran so much as an ice-cream stand, and made him Commander-in-Chief.

A guy, who had never had a real job, worked on a budget, or led anything more than an ACORN demonstration, and we made him “Beloved Leader” of the United States – Twice!

 

So, if you think North Koreans

are stupid…

I’m sorry I brought this up…

never mind!

AMERICAN MATRIX: HOW WE LOST OUR CONSTITUTION PART 1

May 5th, 2017 by

NewsWithViews.com

Do you want your Constitutional Republic back? If so, this article provides you with information that will help you achieve that objective. It won’t come through Constitutional Conventions, Conventions of the States, or memorizing the Constitution and going to court with constitutional arguments in a court system the jurisdiction for which functions under the Uniform Commercial Code (UCC) and Maritime Law.

Your Constitutions (national and state) have been put in hibernation and are brought out like the good silver… only when needed to make an impression or to be used in self defense for crimes committed against the people by those in government who are supposed to serve us.
Some questions for you:

  1. Are you aware that the United States is incorporated? No, this article isn’t about Strawmen or your name being in CAPITAL letters on all legal documents like your birth certificate, driver’s license, Social Security Card, Passport, etc. There is the United States of America and there is the United States of America, Inc. There is a good reason for what happened and it does not involve the bankruptcy of this nation.
  2. Are you aware that the state in which you live is incorporated? All 50 states are incorporated. Read on and I’ll provide you with absolute evidence… not opinion, but evidence.
  3. Are you aware that your county is incorporated?
  4. Are you aware that your city (or township) is incorporated? (Most of us are aware of city incorporations.)
  5. Are you aware that most departments within your city and county are incorporated? Yes, I mean the Sheriff’s Department, the Police Department, the City and County and State Courts (even your State Supreme Court), the Public Library, the Public Works Department, the Department of Education and the County Clerk? Almost every department in your city and county is incorporated. I must admit, this disclosure surprised me more than the others. Even more interesting, most people who staff these departments – including county commissioners, sheriffs, librarians, police chiefs, and other department heads – appear, as I was, unaware of the corporate status of their “departments.”

Here’s a link to my County Sheriff’s office. Notice that it is registered as a “privately held company.” The name listed, Stan Hilkey, was the Sheriff of Mesa County at the time I downloaded the information a couple of months ago. Look your own county Sheriff up on Manta.com and see if your law enforcement is incorporated. My county courts are also incorporated. Are yours? To prove it’s not just a Colorado thing, here’s a link to Alabama’s courts as listed at Manta.com. Look yours up… my bet is that they are also incorporated.

6. Are you aware that corporations are run under the jurisdiction of Statutory Law, not Constitutional or Common Law? Are you aware that Articles of Incorporation based on the policies and regulations in place in all 50 States are governed by the Uniform Commercial Code and/or Maritime Law which are the basis of Statutory Law?

In other words, when wearing their corporate hats (which is whenever it is to their advantage to do so), our federal, state, county, and city governments and the departments contained within them must comply with the policies of the Uniform Commercial Code, not with the Constitution of the United States or your State Constitution. The courts, too, are incorporated. No wonder we see so little Constitutional or Common Law in our courts! No wonder administrative law judges can make the law up as a trial proceeds (or so it appears to those thinking the jurisdiction under which courts function is Constitutional or Common Law)!

This information should answer the questions of many Americans who wander around shaking their heads trying to figure out why our courts are making the insane, unconstitutional decisions that spew out of them like the Devil’s bad breath. The Courts are incorporated and comply with the requirements of Statutory Law based on the policies and procedures dictated by the Uniform Commercial Code or Maritime Law, not the United States Constitution or your State’s Constitution.

People look at their small town police departments being equipped as if they are General Patton in the 1940’s powering his way through Germany and wonder why Humvees and SWAT teams are needed to protect them. Who – or what – are they really protecting?

And it goes beyond our police departments and sheriffs’ offices to our courts and schools and property taxes… and everything else.

You need to know whether what I’m saying is true or false. Go to Manta.com and look up your own state, county and city. Especially look at the departments within your city and county… your fire, sheriff and police departments, your county clerk, the State and County Courts, etc.

Why is this information critical if we are to understand why America is in many cases functioning in a way designed to destroy Her? Why is it “dangerous” information?

The answer is direct and simple: CORPORATIONS (INCLUDING GOVERNMENT CORPORATIONS) DO NOT FUNCTION UNDER A CONSTITUTION. THEY FUNCTION UNDER ARTICLES OF INCORPORATION WHICH ARE SUBJECT TO BUSINESS LAWS OF THE UNIFORM COMMERCIAL CODE AND MARITIME LAW, NOT CONSTITUTIONAL LAW. EVEN MORE IMPORTANT, CORPORATIONS CAN BE DISSOLVED! THAT IS THE BIGGEST DANGER OF THE PEOPLE BECOMING AWARE OF THIS INFORMATION. THE CORPORATE STRUCTURE THEY HAVE BUILT TO REMOVE OUR ACCESS TO CONSTITUTIONAL AND COMMON LAW IN OUR COURTS CAN, LIKE ANY CORPORATION, BE DISSOLVED. IT IS, PERHAPS, THEIR ACHILLES HEEL – their greatest weakness! We, the People, CAN DISSOLVE THEM!

The corporations cannot be dissolved by the government employees who work for them; they must be dissolved by the people. How? County by county. These corporations were imposed from the top down and the only way to disassemble them is from the bottom up. Carry a petition. Get the required number of signatures and get it on your county ballot next election. The initiative should say something like “No government entity in _____ County shall incorporate or be incorporated. All government agencies, divisions and departments must function under the legal jurisdiction of the Constitution of the State of _____ and be subject to the limits imposed on government by the Constitution of the United States and the State of _______.” I’m not a lawyer and I’m sure you can get a stronger statement from an attorney experienced at writing ballot initiatives.

As I will point out in Part II of this article, liberty is not free and if you want your constitutional rights restored, it will require some long-term planning and changes in the way county costs are defined and financed… but it can be done! If you would rather our cost of liberty and constitutional rights be paid via budgeting and taxation instead of young men and women being unnecessarily killed and maimed in unlawful, unconstitutional wars, you will help dissolve the government corporations that help make such tragedies possible.

I must admit, I am surprised this material has been around as long as it has and none of the many lawyers who have been exposed to it had a light go off in their heads saying “Corporations do not function under Constitutional Law which is why Americans are being abused by their courts — and corporations can be dissolved, SO LET’S DISSOLVE THEM!.”

You can logically assume that if your city/township, county, state, and federal governments are incorporated, they do not function under the aegis (protection) of a Constitution of any kind. They function under the rules and regulations of the Uniform Commercial Code. The law and how we lost the jurisdictional protection of Common and Constitutional law is the topic of Part II of this article.

Do you now understand why your courts and law enforcement officials do not act in accordance with the limits placed on government by the United States Constitution – or, even more important, your State’s Constitution?

In the past month, I’ve been to two meetings about jurisdictional law given by experts on Constitutional law. Both were very good… both speakers were quick to point out the rights God grants each of us and the limits on government guaranteed under the Constitution. Neither realized that the constitutional rights of the people are being badly abused because of the corporate status of federal, state, county, city governments and most of the departments that function under those entities and thus do not answer to Federal and State Constitutions. Neither speaker realized that corporations are under the jurisdiction of Statutory or business law – the Uniform Commercial Code/Maritime Law. It raises a difficult question for constitutional experts: If the various governments, including our courts, function under the jurisdiction of the Uniform Commercial Code rather than the Constitution, how important is a Constitution that has been hi-jacked?

Before moving on to Part II of this article which will explain the kinds of jurisdictional law being practiced in American courts, I want to provide you what I promised. Evidence.

It’s time to stop speculating about issues, wondering (what a waste of time) if this crisis or that one is a false flag. “They” rely on chaos to keep you off balance because only by keeping you off balance can they take their next unlawful step designed to eliminate the asset singly responsible for preventing socialism or communism in America’s capitalist economy: The middle class. They throw one issue after another at you… from amnesty to police brutality; from shopping center shootings to elementary school shootings to shootings of police officers sitting innocently in their car. They take you from one false flag to another. They throw one war after another at you… or threaten a new war. As the manipulation of gold was used to cause the Great Depression of the early 1900’s, they use the new gold – oil – to manipulate this even Greater Depression.

They can call it a recession all they want, but the only reason people are not standing in food lines as they did in the 1930s is food stamps. They called the job creation programs of the Great Depression the Work(s) Progress Administration (WPA). In the 30s, cities all over the country got new parks and recreation facilities, bridges were built as were schools and highways… the work of the WPA. It provided jobs for the unemployed. For this current Greater Depression it is called “shovel ready jobs.”

When they hire a new government employee, it depletes the tax base rather than adding to it, so new government hires cannot be categorized as “new jobs” produced by the economy. But the Obama Administration needs to look like it is doing SOMETHING right, so they “create” new jobs by funding them via private sector contractor work projects. Then they can be counted as new jobs… just as Franklin Delano Roosevelt did with WPA jobs – but government, not a thriving free marketplace, is paying for these “new jobs.” Regardless of stock market ups and downs, the marketplace is not thriving. It is being manipulated.

I believe the core problem centers on the incorporation of every federal, state, and county and all of the departments within each and the resulting system that had to be built to support itself. Logic tells me that if we get rid of the corporations, we remove their ability to manipulate our courts and all government offices with no personal accountability. I believe if we take action while we still can, we can retrieve our nation from what the international central banking system has thrown in the trash bin of history without first ensuring the corpse is dead.

If I’m correct, this is not only the most important article I’ve ever written for any news publication, it is also one of the most important articles you will ever read. It’s also the most dangerous… for me, at least – and for Paul Walter, the publisher of NewsWithViews.com.

Why is it dangerous? Because it offers a solution to the conundrum (unsolvable puzzle) “they” have created. Over a long period of time (it began in the late 1800s), “they” created the conundrum to give them sufficient time to globally enslave all but the elitists. The same techniques if not the same programs are being used around the world. The objective? Global government composed of oligarchies (an elite class and a labor class – no middle class) worldwide.

Manta.com is a Web site that provides corporate information. It costs a few hundred dollars to be a member of Dunn & Bradstreet – and when I owned my own company, I was a member. I no longer am. So, I use Manta.com because it’s free. Manta provides the names of about 40 million for-profit private companies – including government.

Here is a Manta.com copy of a listing for the State of Colorado.

MATRIX

If you look at the bottom of the Manta form, you’ll see that Democrat Governor Hickenlooper is referenced as Colorado’s CEO rather than the State’s Governor. Why? Just as corporations do not run on Constitutional law, neither do corporations have Governors. They have Chief Executive Officers. Or, they have Managers… check out California’s Governor, Jerry Brown. Manta.com lists him as California’s “Manager” and California is “A privately held company in Sacramento, CA.”

Here’s more evidence of the incorporation of America’s sovereign states and their cities and counties.

Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker is, like Hickenlooper, listed as that state’s Chief Executive Officer. On the Walker link to Wisconsin’s Washington, D.C. Executive Office (why do Governors need offices in D.C.? – because their state is incorporated there and a corporation needs an office in the location of incorporation), scroll down and look at the Washington, D.C. Executive Office for the State of New York. Wisconsin and New York are on the same page. This particular link tells you that the State of New York is incorporated in the District of Columbia and that Derek Douglas is the Manager of the Washington, D.C. office, not the Governor. I researched Douglas, wondering why he is listed as the Washington, D.C.-based New York Governor’s Office Manager. I found a Press Release from the White House stating that Derek Douglas was an urban affairs special assistant to the President of the United States.

Maryland’s Executive Office D.C. listing shows its State of Incorporation as the District of Columbia. Does it surprise you to learn that Governors have Executive Offices located in the District of Columbia? New York is just one example. Go here to find the D.C. Executive Offices for Pennsylvania, Iowa, Florida, Wisconsin, Maryland, North Carolina, South Carolina, Idaho, California, Delaware, and Oregon. This article provides too little space to list all 50, but they are there. Here’s the link for the Commonwealth of Massachusetts.

I said our cities and counties have been incorporated. Here is the Manta.com listing for the City of Birmingham, Alabama. State of Incorporation is Alabama… the city IS incorporated. Most of us know that cities are incorporated. Most of us did not know that our counties are incorporated and that almost every department and division within our incorporated cities and counties are incorporated, too.

For many years, people have talked about government Comprehensive Annual Financial Reports (CAFRs) and have tried to find where the CAFR funds are hidden. Where in the world could “they” be hiding them? The federal, state, county and city corporations would be a good guess. No one knows about them.

Did I mention that each of these entities has two identities? There is, for example, the State of Colorado – and there is the State of Colorado, Inc. There is a County of Denver – and there is a Denver County, Inc., etc. They cannot drop the Constitutional identity because if they do, they lose “We, the People…” who didn’t volunteer to be part of their corporation. Thus, it appears every government, no matter how large or how small, in the country has dual identities, one incorporated and one unincorporated.

Here are some Manta.com links you can use to start doing your own research. When you find your Sheriff’s Department is incorporated, when you find your local Courts are incorporated, you might just want to start carrying a petition to get signatures demanding a vote of the people to dissolve all government corporations within your county and demand that they function under your State Constitution rather than under Statutory Jurisdiction which offers citizens no Constitutional protections from government usurpation of the power of individual citizens. It will surprise only a few to learn in Part II of this article that it all began with the Federal Reserve System.

Or you can contact any of the 374 veterans organizations listed as companies by the Federal Government. Now we know how they could withhold medical benefits from our veterans. We know why no one who participated in withholding the medical services from dying men and women entitled to those services was terminated from government payrolls: They were wearing their corporate hats.

Here are links to some Manta.com veterans’ listings (you usually have to scroll to the bottom of the page to get what you want… not all listings about veterans involve government agencies like the Veterans Administration; Manta lists private companies that deal with veterans, too).

Dunn & Bradstreet is the official organization that registers and keeps track of American business credit ratings. They assign DUNS code numbers so corporate credit ratings can be found by lenders or other creditors when companies apply for credit. Below, you will find the DUNS code number for your state and its largest city.

Below are the Dunn & Bradstreet numbers assigned to some federal government offices. After the federal government listings, every state and its largest population center DUNS data is provided. The DUNS numbers are not the result of my own research — the Manta.com material is data I have been personally researching since last summer. The DUNS numbers have been listed on the Internet since February 2013, but I have been unable to find the person who did all of this work. I will say the Louisiana and Tennessee numbers appear incorrect (all have 9 numbers assigned except these two). As a non Dunn & Bradstreet member, I have no way to go to the D&B site and verify them but hope they will be helpful to you.

MATRIX

This list creates a lot of interesting questions. For example, why does the U.S. Internal Revenue Service need a DUNs number – unless it is incorporated? Looking at the above list of departments within the U.S. Government, does it give you any insight to how “they” get away with the VA scandal, Fast and Furious guns across the border, Benghazi, the IRS discrimination against conservative groups applying for tax exempt status? Relative to the law, corporations are governed by the Uniform Commercial Code (or the Law of the Seas – sometimes called Maritime Law). They have no obligation to protect anyone’s Constitutional rights when functioning under their corporate hats – and they keep the Constitutional hat available in case they get caught and need to declare their Constitutional rights to certain protections – like Lois Lerner’s use of the Fifth Amendment when she testified before Congress. Perhaps that explains the smirk on her face during that proceeding?

Remember the controversy about Lerner’s appearance before the Senate Committee before which she testified? “She can’t make a statement pronouncing her innocence and then declare her Fifth Amendment rights to avoid answering questions about her possible guilt! That’s against the law!” That’s what every constitutional law expert said… and had she been functioning under the Constitution, they would have been correct.

When she made her statement, she was wearing her corporate hat. When she declared her rights under the Constitution, she was wearing her constitutional hat. It is the best possible example I can give you about why they need to maintain their rights under BOTH the Constitution and the Corporations for which they work. The Constitution gives them protections from personal liability they would not otherwise have.

Here is the Dunn & Bradstreet listing of numbers assigned to cities and states:

Part II of this article will explain how America’s laws morphed from Constitutional to Statutory law. It involves debt (and explains why Congress is so adamantly tied to ever increasing and ongoing debt). [The book: The Coming Battle, published in 1899, documents how the politicians of that period didn’t want the debt to be paid off. They wanted the debt to be rolled over from generation to generation. It continues to this day. It’s a must read.] GO HERE FOR PART 2 http://wp.me/p1jN4X-1RU

To Ignore Principles Is To Invite Chaos

PRINCIPLESHuman newborns, no matter what culture or geographical location, are very much like computers with empty hard drives.  You can fill the hard drive with truths, (say a well-written program that can be an excellent tool) or you can dump garbage into it and have it produce gibberish.  Babies are also like sponges and they absorb everything that their five senses ingest, either good or evil.  Babies are not pre-programmed for good.  They can be molded into any type of human their handlers want them to be.  If babies are left to their own resources, should they survive to adulthood, they become the sum of all of their inherited characteristics and all of their experiences and how their mind processes those experiences.  We have previously described this process in our “Little Black Box” Theory.

But babies are not responsible for whom or what they become, their parents and their teachers are.  That is a huge responsibility that way too many folk take lightly.

So we as parents and teachers have a choice.  We can instill solid “principles” of right and wrong, self-reliance, discipline, compassion and responsibility in our charges, or we can instill incarnate evil, dependence on government and everything in between.  Or, we can allow them to be brainwashed, as is happening in our public schools and colleges today.  But if we do nothing, the outcome of our children and what they will become is unpredictable, as they will be subject to random influences.  Under random influences, a child has the possibility of becoming a Hitler, a George Washington, or a derelict, depending upon the principles, or lack thereof, that have been recorded on their “hard drives”.  But whatever we do, or don’t do, for or against our children, can have a profound effect on history and future generations.

A couple of thousand years ago, a set of moral “principles” were handed down to the peoples of the time.  “Principles” that have stood the test of time and that have been the bedrock of at least two major religions whose heartbeat started in and near Jerusalem in what is now Israel.  Those principles have been the fabric and foundation that have kept these religions alive and going strong, for well over 2,000 years.  Splinter religions that strayed from, or significantly altered the “principles”, fell by the wayside and disappeared from view, or became ineffectual fringe elements, or outcasts, or cults.

Countries and cultures are a great deal like the minds of young babies.  They can either establish a set of strong principles to govern them selves, or allow them selves to be subject to random influences, or worse, in their apathy and indifference, allow their governors to usurp unlimited powers.

There is an inviolate law of nature that was set down by scientists of the 19th century as the second law of thermo-dynamics.  It is called the law of entropy.  In simple terms the law states that any entity, any living body, has only one path from present to future and that path is from order to disorder.  A body with heat, in time, loses that heat.  A cell or cells in an organism eventually wear out and die.  The orbits of planets and moons ultimately decay and they sometimes crash into their suns, or their host planets.  Suns, like our own, use up their energy and in time, burn out, expand into red giants and then collapse into very dense white dwarfs.  Even our Universe may be headed for what scientists call heat death, where all heat is dissipated to nothingness and only deep cold is left.

But like many laws, there are some exceptions.  It seems that there is another mysterious force at work in our Universe, wherein order emerges from chaos and instead we get the opposite of entropy.  Massive supernova explosions of giant stars spew out elements, billions of miles into the surrounding void, elements that are manufactured in the bowels of the dying star from nuclear fusion.  Over time those elements coalesce into huge clouds of gas and the gas clouds then begin to collapse under gravity and form new stars that heat emerging planets, upon which on some, life is born.  Thus, from the death of a star, from order to disorder under the law of entropy, comes order in the form of new suns, planets and life, and in some cases intelligent life.  All life and inanimate matter on earth is made up of the elements that were manufactured in massive star supernovas.  And by some operation of principle, or law, those elements assemble themselves into objects with form and purpose, like stars, planets, rocks, water, plant and animal life.

On Earth, at least, a plant rises up out of the moist, rich soil from a tiny seed no bigger than a few grains of sand.  Its journey through life is preordained.  It cannot sway from the goal set for it by its genetics, chemistry and biology.  Those limits are its “principles”.  Somewhere along the way a bud forms on the end of a stalk or tendril of the plant and in but a few days, erupts into a splendor of color and a soft, enticing shape; each plant having its own unique form.  Deep inside the flower, which it has now become, lies the makings for its offspring and with a little help from other creatures, the chemical means to allow it to reproduce.  Soon it is visited by a host of flying insects and birds and from that embrace and the ultimate distribution of the contents of its interior, the seeds are sown for a new generation of the species.

In contrast, human beings of Earth are far different than the plant, even though they too come from a seed.  Humans possess what all plants and most, if not all animals, do not possess.  Humans have pre-programmed into them volition, free choice, an ego, an id, a will to determine their own direction, their own future.  But humans, without adherence to sound principles, invite chaos and can wander aimlessly, without purpose, or create havoc among the rest of the population, like Hitler, Stalin, or Mao.  Many of these hapless souls become easy pray for governments looking for votes ….. or slaves.

As we go about the business of work and play in America, as we sit at the dinner table with each member paying more attention to the electronic device in their hand than to the people at that table, as we seek mindless television entertainment, as we indulge in destructive behavior or mind altering drugs, as we ignore what is happening in the world around us, or holding accountable those that govern us, we are ignoring the principles of our freedom and we are allowing this generation to descend into the chaos of slavery, which then impacts all future generations.  How can the people act against tyranny if they are unaware of, or choose to ignore, a clear and present danger, from foreign or domestic enemies, especially domestic enemies?

It is written that eleven score and twenty-one years ago, ‘our founding fathers brought forth on this continent a new nation, conceived in liberty’, in which the unalienable rights, granted to us by our creator, were codified into a set of “principles” under our Constitution.  ‘And to secure these unalienable rights, governments were instituted among men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed.’  (How many of you feel you are giving consent to the government?)

‘Now we are engaged in a time’ of contentious conflict, confusion, turmoil and division, amongst our own people, severely ‘testing whether that nation, or any nation so conceived and so dedicated, can long endure.’  But without adherence to and the defense of the “principles” upon which this great nation was founded, the law of entropy will surely lead us from order into chaos and we shall crumble and decay into socialism, despotism, or a dictatorship, as have all past nations who toyed with freedom throughout the history of man and lost it.   The future of freedom is in our hands, but only if we fiercely adhere to the principles handed down to us by the brave and courageous men and women who forged America, in a time of turmoil, conflict and confusion.

Author Don Porter recently wrote:  The United States was established as a society of individuals who were free, by and large, to engage in any occupation or economic enterprise without the government interference of regulation.  A society where people through their own efforts could accumulate wealth in amounts unlimited by government interference.  They could do with that wealth as they pleased, spend, invest, save, donate it, or throw it in the river if desired.   It was the Founder’s belief that America could do more for the rest of the world by giving them an example of how a nation could prosper through a society of individuals free from government interference in their lives, living free and governing themselves, a way of life in which the government had very little power to tax, regulate, or take care of them except protection from foreign intervention.

My plea to every American all over this great nation of Individual Freedom, is to educate and enlighten ourselves to what is happening to America by the direction the people of this Socialist movement is taking us.  We must awaken ourselves and recognize the ominous signs of the sinister and threatening danger, which these people and their backers are attempting to implement upon the people of this Free Republic.  The real danger is ignoring the Constitution and becoming a nation of people whose lives are regulated by them through our Federal Government.

To Ignore the Principles” contained in the U. S. Constitution and the intent of the framers “Is To Invite Chaos” into our lives.  We assembled some of those basic principles in our “18 Principles For Freedom” document. 

But as we have said before, these are just meaningless words if no one believes in them, or are unwilling to act in their preservation and defense.

Who among you will “Preserve and Defend” these principles?

How to Correct Your Political Status and Why

April 25th, 2017 by

http://www.paulstramer.net/2017/04/how-to-correct-your-political-status.html

Political StatusBy Anna Von Reitz

Chances are you aren’t obligated to be considered any form of federal Municipal CITIZEN nor as a federal Territorial Citizen, but you have been entrapped in a profit-making scheme that pretends that you have knowingly and willingly agreed to act as a volunteer federal employee— specifically, as a “Withholding Agent” — a Warrant Officer in the Merchant Marine Service, and that you have purposefully and knowingly enrolled in the Social Security program which is only available to federal employees in order to receive benefits from the Public Charitable Trust (PCT) which was organized in the wake of the Civil War for welfare relief of former plantation slaves.

What? You never worked a day for the federal government? You were never told that “Social Security” is only for federal employees and dependents? You aren’t a former plantation slave? You never got any benefits?

Well, then, you have to stop calling yourself any kind of “US citizen” — because citizens all work for the government. They have a duty and obligation to obey every statute, code, and whim of the government as a result, and they are also liable to pay federal income taxes. You also have to stop voting in any “US elections” including “State of State” elections, because the States of States are just local franchises of the federal corporation(s) defined at 28 USC 3002 (15).

So, Step One— withdraw and rescind any and all applications and enrollments as a “registered voter”. You have no natural interest in the elections of a foreign corporation that you don’t work for, right?

If you don’t get a paycheck direct from the federal government and you don’t want to function as a for-free Withholding Agent and aren’t interested in any “benefits” that you pay for yourself and don’t want to be held subject to the whims of a foreign entity that is supposed to be providing you with Good Faith Service instead– then read on.

You have been mis-characterized and defrauded and you have prima facie evidence of that readily available. You think of it as your Birth Certificate, but it isn’t. It is a “certification” that a federal MUNICIPAL “PERSON” was created and named after you and that at one point in your life you were a real American. You were born on your birthday, but the MUNICIPAL PERSON has a birth date which is several days or weeks later—the filing date shown on the certificate.

Please note that the “Birth Certificate” is printed on bond paper. It is a security instrument. Please also note that it has been signed by the Registrar — an officer of the probate court. This is prima facie evidence that your earthly estate was probated when you were only a few days or weeks old and that it was seized upon by the State of ___________ or STATE OF_________ and operated for its benefit from that time on.

So, Step Two—- ditch the federal MUNICIPAL PERSON and the responsibilities and obligations associated with it.

You need to get the Birth Certificate authenticated if that is still possible in your state, or certified, if not, and then you need to endorse it and “surrender” it to the U.S. Secretary of the Treasury

(Please note the two dots between the “U” and the “S”—– the U.S. Treasury.) and make Steven T. Mnuchin the Fiduciary responsible for IT.

The endorsement is simple but exact. The authenticated or certified Birth Certificate that the birth State Secretary of State sends back to you will have a cover page riveted or hard stapled and firmly attached to the front of the BC. You leave that cover page attached and on the front of the BC itself in the upper left hand corner and in red ink you write: “Accepted by Drawee” and sign it by: Your Upper Lower Case Signature, and date it.

Then turn the BC over and on the back anywhere write: Pay to the Order of the United States of America, U.S. Treasury. Without Recourse. And again, write— by: Your Upper and Lower Case Signature, and date it.

Next comes the Form 56, which is the IRS Form called “Notice of Fiduciary Relationship”. This is your Notice to Mr. Mnuchin that you are making him and his office responsible for the PERSON named after you.

The Form 56 is very simple — the name of the PERSON is the NAME on the BC which you are returning to the Treasury.

The name of the Fiduciary is Steven T. Mnuchin, Secretary of the Treasury. You can look up the address online. I believe it is 1500 Pennsylvania Avenue NW, Washington, DC 20220.

Section A (f) — “Other” — Public Commercial Trust Administration

Section B(4) — Check (a) (b) and (h) “Other” and just say, “All forms that may be necessary”.

On the back, Part II, 7 (C) “Other” — Surrender of federal “PERSON” to U.S. Treasury

On the back, Part III “Court and Administrative Proceedings” — enter the name and address of the agency issuing the BC. The “date proceeding initiated” will be the File Date which is never your birthday, but a few days or weeks later. The “docket number” will be the State File Number on the BC. The time will be the time you were actually born, and the place of “other” proceedings will be “usa”.

On the back, Part IV, “Signature” —- you write the word “by” like a by-line to a newspaper story—- by: Your Name (Upper and Lower Case), Authorized Representative, and the date.

Underneath the Signature is a blank space. It is appropriate to say that you wish to be indemnified against claims or losses under the sovereign usa Private Registered Indemnity Bond AMRI00001 RA393427640US.

This is basically a bond posted in behalf of all the actual states of the Union and all the people living in those states insuring them against any further claims related to the MUNICIPAL PERSON(S) they have surrendered back to Mr. Mnuchin.

And that is that. You have now surrendered the MUNICIPAL “CITIZEN” back whence it came and you have insured yourself against any further claims or losses or charges brought against that PERSON.

Along with the Form 56 you should include a brief letter stating that it is your instruction to operate exclusively under 100% commercial liability and without benefit of any limited liability or other benefit of the Public Charitable Trust (PCT).

You are going to send this package of documents via Registered Mail to the Treasury. Each red and white Registered Mail label (available with instructions at all Post Offices) is unique and has an alpha-numeric identifier to track it. This includes a nine-digit number that is compatible with the federal system. As part of your assignment letter, instruct Mr. Mnuchin to open a Treasury Direct Account with that number and to please inform you when it is open for business. Also ask him to settle all debts and charges related to YOUR NAME and deposit the remainder and all other credits owed into the new Treasury Direct Account.

Thank him for his time and attention.

Well, that was a Royal Pain and you shouldn’t have ever been entrapped and obligated by your employees in the first place, but now you have taken action to sever the presumption that you are volunteering to act as a federal MUNICIPAL CITIZEN, and nobody can say otherwise. From now on, “IT” is Mr. Mnuchin’s problem and you are indemnified against any further claims or complaints related to “IT”.

Step 3…. Notify both the Commissioner of the Internal Revenue Service at Department of the Treasury, Internal Revenue Service, P.O. Box 480, Holtsville, New York, 11742-0480 and the Internal Revenue Office of the Commissioner, Room 3000, 1111 Constitution Avenue NW, Washington, DC 20204-0002, that you have retired from all presumed federal service and you are revoking your election to pay federal income taxes effective October 1 of 2016. Send these Notices via Registered Mail, too. Save a copy and the mailing receipts and the Green Card Return Receipt Requested for your Eternally Done and Over File.

No more Voter Registration, no more obligation to file Federal Income Taxes and no Municipal United States PERSON for the US DISTRICT COURT — that is, DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA MUNICIPAL CORPORATION DISTRICT COURT to address.

That much is done and over.

But there’s more.

You also have to rebut and return the allegation of Territorial United States Citizenship. You do this by recording an Act of Expatriation.

This is as simple as saying that your allegiance is to the soil of your native birth state, say, Louisiana, and that you act only as a private American state trading vessel and birthright member of the unincorporated private trade association doing business as The United States of America.

Now, no matter what kind of word-smithing and duplicitous redefining of terms that goes on forever afterward, no incorporated entity or franchise of any incorporated entity can claim that you are operating as a Foreign Situs Trust belonging to them or abandoned for their benefit—- which was FDR’s fraudulent claim against Americans in 1933.

You have declared that at home you are living on the land and at sea your Name is an American vessel engaged in international trade— not subject to federal regulation of commerce and owed all the protections of the actual Constitution and treaties backing it.

So now they have no grounds to “presume” that you are a Territorial United States Citizen, either.

X and X.

Finally, the rats have created “International Organizations” and run them “in your name”. You need to seize upon these organizations and file liens against them. You do this using a UCC-1 Financing Statement Form. The organizations doing business as your FIRST MIDDLE LAST and FIRST M.I. LAST are the DEBTORS and your non-Territorial Lawful Trade Name (aka Christian Name– First Middle Last) is the Secured Party. This is not a Notice of your interest, because you have already given plenty of public notice. You can lien these organizations directly by checking the “Non-UCC” claim in Box 6.

When filling out the UCC-1 Form be sure to write the names in the proper style. Everything related to the DEBTORS including USA should be in all capital letters. Everything related to the Secured Party should be Upper and Lower Case, except that for the Secured Party it should be “usa” — the actual organic states.

And now, finally, you have provided your employees with a fistful of paperwork refuting all their lies and presumptions about you. They can no longer presume anything about your political status, except that it is private and that you are operating lawfully and without any obligation to them or their organization. Quite the opposite— they are in fact your employees and obligated to you.

Your final stop should be the State Secretary of State’s Office to present him with another copy of “your” authenticated/certified BC.

I want you to stare that man or woman right in the eye and say: “This is prima facie evidence of a Public Trust…..”

If necessary, continue on—– “and also prima facie evidence of intent to defraud.”

“I have reclaimed my birthright political status and I want the proper passport I am owed. If you aren’t authorized to issue it, get on the phone and find out who is.”

If they attempt to drag you into one of their courts ask them where they will find the authority to address you? And where will they find a jury of your peers?

The Great Fraud is over.

The international trustees responsible for this Mess know that it is. You know that it is. It is just a matter of time before the whole world wakes up and goes—- WT…..?

Bankruptcy

By Anna Von Reitz

Americans—– another Territorial United States “National” bankruptcy FRAUD is in progress and coming at you!

On May 1, 2017, an international day of Communist celebrations and also a Satanic festival, it is the stated intention of the “THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA” (INC.) to declare bankruptcy and turn over its Puerto Rican Electrical Utility to international bankruptcy courts and bank-appointed trustees.  There is just one little problem.  Mr. Obummer created and named millions of public transmitting utility franchises of this bankrupt Puerto Rican Electrical Utility to stand as sureties for its debts.  And they are all named, nominally, after living Americans. 

Remember how the vermin mischaracterized your estates as ESTATES named after you, so that “John Allen Dunn” became “JOHN ALLEN DUNN”?  

Well, now the limey cretins are trying another trick.  They are trying to redefine and rename JOHN ALLEN DUNN as JOHN A. DUNN — a purported franchise standing as surety for their bankrupt Puerto Rican Transmitting Utility. 

Please note that “JOHN A. DUNN” isn’t even a legal name.  It is no name at all for lack of specificity.  Is that “JOHN ALLEN DUNN”?  Or “JOHN AMBROSE DUNN”? Or “JOHN ALLISON DUNN”?  Or, or, or…..?

I am bringing judgment to the World Court concerning this blatant attempt to defraud Americans and I am writing to Attorney General Jeff Sessions to protest this fraud upon the bankruptcy court. 

What I want all of you to do as your part of the effort— those who can afford to do so — immediately put advertisements in the “legal section” of your local newspapers as shown below and upon publication, send a copy of the ad along with the name and address of the newspaper and the publication date to me at:  Judge Anna Maria Riezinger, c/o 1336 Staubbach Circle, Anchorage, Alaska 99652.

*****  NOTICE OF NON-ASSUMPSIT*****

What appear to be names in the form JOHN A. DOE are not names, but Puerto Rican ACCOUNTS belonging to franchises of a bankrupt Puerto Rican Electrical Utility operated by THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA (INC.).   All such ACCOUNTS are pre- paid in full by Payment Bond AMRI00003 RA 493427653 US on file with the Vatican Chancery Court. 

All re-flagged American Trading Vessels dba under lawful names in the form John Adam Doe operated by the United States of America and its land jurisdiction states operating in undelegated international jurisdiction are now under the beneficial ownership of the united States of America  and are indemnified under sovereign private registered indemnity bond AMRI00001 RA 393427640 US on file with the U.S. Treasury. 

Any billing statements issued to names in the form John A. Doe or JOHN A. DOE are illegal and unlawful and are in violation of United States Public Law and are an illegal conveyance of grammar.  No payment, credit, or debit issued in response to such an improper 

solicitation may be considered an assumption of that debt nor that identity and no legal or punitive action may be taken against anyone for failure to pay or perform any action is response to such solicitation. 

The COMMONWEALTH OF PUERTO RICO and Commonwealth of Puerto Rico and the UNITED STATES (INC.) and United States (Inc.) are hereby given NOTICE/Notice of these facts and are  prohibited from seeking bankruptcy protection under false pretenses, hypothecating debt against American state nationals, making false claims of surety-ship related to American Trading Vessels, or otherwise promoting fraud and racketeering on our shores.   

Notice Posted by: The American States and People

                              c/o 1336 Staubbach Circle

                              Anchorage, Alaska 99562  *****

This, and writing letters to the US Attorney General and President Trump, are the most effective actions you can take to prevent and forestall another attempted “national” bankruptcy fraud scheme of the Territorial United States aimed at the American states and people.

 Letter to the Hague Prosecutors Office

http://www.paulstramer.net/2017/04/letter-to-hague-prosecutors-office.html

By Anna Von Reitz

18th of April

Information and Evidence Unit

Office of the Prosecutor

P.O. Box 19519

2500 CM The Hague

The Netherlands

Dear Sirs:

We are facing a crisis in the long process to restore lawful government to the actual United States and continue to suffer false claims and insupportable, outlawed practices which the so-called Territorial United States and Municipal United States corporations have been attempting to foist off on the actual states and people. 

On May 1, 2017, they propose to set up a deliberate fraud scheme to attack and defraud millions upon millions of innocent people utilizing the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico as a base of operations.   This has been done before as part of the fraudulent 1930’s bankruptcy of the United States of America, Inc., and is apparently being done in preparation for a similar fraud scheme related to the bankruptcy of the UNITED STATES, INC.  The scheme has been prepared for by the Obama Administration and is apparently being carried through by the Trump Administration. 

The Commonwealth of Puerto Rico, a member of the Territorial United States organization, is bankrupting its primary electrical utility corporation.  This in itself is hardly worthy of mention on a global scale and would occasion little comment or concern, except that Mr. Obama created millions of purported “franchises” which are supposedly stand as sureties for this particular Puerto Rican public utility. 

These “franchises” are all identified using alphabetic ACCOUNT designators that appear to be the names of living Americans— for example, Alfred T. Krebs or ALFRED T. KREBS.  It isn’t certain yet whether they will attempt to use Glossa against our Judicial Notice of Fraud and Violation issued last May or not, but their intention has been clearly stated in the press.   A copy of the Judicial Notice of Fraud and Violation has been included in a letter (copy also attached) to U.S. Attorney General Jeffrey Sessions.

When unsuspecting Americans receive bills addressed to these foreign public transmitting utilities, they pay them under the false assumption that these bills are legitimately addressed to them.  The actual bills are already being paid out of the U.S. Treasury, so the perpetrators pocket the difference and say that these additional payments are “donations” and “gifts”—-but are really the fruits of unjust enrichment, extortion, racketeering, and fraud committed by employees against their trusting employers.

It is international mail fraud, international identity theft, and involuntary conscription amounting to international slavery and racketeering being implemented via similar names deceits and the illegal and prohibited use of Glossas and false names.   Please note that these Accounts/ACCOUNTS which use middle initials are not even legal names for lack of specificity.

This is also constructive fraud on a massive scale which has been prepared with malice aforethought by foreign governmental services corporations operating as crime syndicates on our shores.  The essence of the crime is clearly established.  They kidnap, press-gang, and coerce Americans to sign up for programs that only US Territorial or US Municipal employees are eligible for, then falsely claim that these people are “voluntarily” functioning as either Territorial or Municipal “citizens” and are then subject to their private corporation statutes, regulations, and codes. 

Mr. Jeffrey Sessions, functioning as the U.S. Attorney General, has been given full warning with regard these deliberate anticipated crimes on our shores as well as a copy of our Judicial Notice of Fraud and Violation which was also sent to you last May.

Sincerely,

Judge Anna Maria Riezinger

 Business Letter to U. S. Attorney Jeffrey Session’s

http://www.paulstramer.net/2017/04/business-letter-to-us-attorney-jeffrey.html

 

By Anna Von Reitz

April 18, 2017

 

Mr. Jeffrey Sessions, U.S. Attorney General

U.S. Department of Justice
 950 Pennsylvania Avenue NW
 Washington, DC 20530-0001

Dear Mr. Sessions:

I am writing this afternoon —the 242nd  Anniversary of the “Shot heard round the world”—regarding three areas of immediate and urgent concern: (1) the continued forced, fraudulent and inadequately disclosed enrollment of American state nationals in Social Security programs intended exclusively for Territorial United States and Municipal United States citizens and (2) failure of the Territorial and Municipal United States to come to an agreement with the actual land jurisdiction United States regarding proper identification of American state nationals and American State Citizens v. United States Citizens v. citizens of the United States on passports and other international and interstate IDs and (3) the pending bankruptcy of the Puerto Rican Electrical Utility and the fraudulent creation of millions of purported “franchise” public transmitting utilities operated under ACCOUNTS that are deceptively similar in appearance to the names of Americans.

The pretense that people are knowingly volunteering to serve as Withholding Agents, that is, Warrant Officers in the Merchant Marine Service, to help win WWII ran out of steam in September 1945.

The continued international racketeering aimed at deliberately misinformed Americans and their enrollment in “Social Security” under these patently false presumptions of federal employment and Territorial and/or Municipal citizenship have to end immediately.  The Territorial and Municipal Government organizations have been under Notice for going on two years.  The longer you wait to admit the circumstance and release the adhesion contracts the worse it gets— and the more people are harmed. 

Ditto the situation with passports.  The American people are owed competent passport service, but they are being routinely misidentified as United States Citizens and/or citizens of the United States as a result of having been improperly and unconscionably enrolled and conscripted under conditions of fraud as U.S. Territorial and/or U.S. Municipal citizens. 

As you are aware, it is illegal to use “legal names”.  As you should also be aware, it was never the intention of American states nationals to operate in commerce.  Instead, another false presumption was foisted off on us by the Franklin Delano Roosevelt Administration which sought to “redefine” our lawful American Trade Names as U.S. Foreign Situs Trusts so as to palm off the debts of the private, mostly foreign owned “United States of America” Inc. onto the American states and people by an undisclosed process of hypothecation, fraud, and assumption of debt we never owed. 

That boondoggle ended in 1999.  Trillions of dollars-worth of labor and assets were siphoned out of this country as a result.  Let me suggest to you that there isn’t going to be a re-run of it. 

We aren’t putting up with any more “government” racketeering or fraud.

Tell your Boss.  Tell the members of the feckless, treasonous, disgusting Congress. 

They need to drop the whole plan of bankrupting all those purported public transmitting utilities NAMED after JOE Q. PUBLIC Americans and stop hypothecating debt against all those illegal, unlawful, non-specific, but deceptively similar ACCOUNTS that appear to be our names, and stop sending fraudulent bills through the U.S. Mail.  

Tell Mr. Trump— “NON-ASSUMPSIT” in very large letters.  Tell the COMMONWEALTH OF PUERTO RICO its electrical utility will have to go bankrupt like any other mismanaged corporation on Earth. 

While you are at it, get ready for all the homebound Americans who are now wise to the scam, returning to the land jurisdiction and surrendering all those millions of bogus U.S. PERSONS that were created by the UNITED STATES, INC. back to the Secretary of the Treasury. 

Also be aware that we seized upon the derelict United States of America, Inc. that we bailed out of bankruptcy and paid off and which is ours and when we did so, we also took all 50 American land jurisdiction States with it and rolled the whole enchilada back into our actual land jurisdiction state trading companies.  Look at the extractions on file and made part of the public record. 

All the States of __________ and STATES OF ___________ belong to the  ____________States and the __________States belong to the united States of America which belongs to the States which belong to the actual states and people of this country.  

It’s over, Mr. Sessions.  The Great Fraud that began with the so-called “American Civil War” is over.  The Territorial and Municipal “United States Congress” members need to get their paws out of our pockets and start paying attention to those nineteen enumerated services we are owed, including the national trust indenture owed as the Preamble of that old, musty, dusty original equity contract called The Constitution for the united States of America.  

Beyond that, if Mr. Trump needs money to continue operations, he doesn’t need to borrow any debt from the Israelis and he doesn’t need to borrow credit from the Rothschilds.  He just has to realize where the actual money and credit has gone and assist us in our efforts to recover the assets that are owed to us. He will have all that he needs to operate the governmental services corporations.   Free and clear.

Sincerely,

Judge Anna Maria Riezinger

No Great Mystery of Judicial Tyranny” + FBI Informers, the Bundys, and Watering Horses

SAVING FREEDOM

By Anna Von Reitz

There is no “great mystery of judicial tyranny”.  There is only a great deal of fustian ignorance and assumption abounding.

The Constitution exists to set up the Federal Government and the Federal Government is responsible for nineteen delegated “powers” — duties to perform services in common for the subscribing states of the union—- all of which, with the limited exception of the Interstate Commerce Clause— take place in the international jurisdiction of the sea.  

As a result the only courts created under The Constitution are Admiralty, Maritime, and Administrative Courts related to the Federal Government and its duties. 

Those courts were never meant to say a single word to us, the actual people.  They were pressed into service when the United States of America, Inc. was fraudulently bankrupted in 1933.  Suddenly, there was no funding for our long-established Common Law Courts. 

So the rats got around this by committing a vast crime of personage and “redefining” us and naming Foreign Situs Trusts and Cestui Que Vie Trusts after us.  These were then incorporated entities that they could address in Admiralty/Maritime and Administrative courts.

[The crime of personage amounts to a form of identity theft and involves deliberately confusing a living man with an incorporated entity named after him.]

They bankrupted the Foreign Situs Trusts as presumed sureties of the United States of America, Inc. at the same time that they started charging off current services provided by the UNITED STATES, INC. against the Cestui Que Vie Trusts. 

Thus their Trustees had their hands in the pockets of “John Michael Doe” Foreign Situs Trust at the same time as the current service provider had their paws in the pockets of “JOHN MICHAEL DOE” —— neither name any longer representing the actual living man

This is a commercial crime of staggering proportions, but it is not a political issue.  It is, as I keep telling you, a commercial crime with political consequences. 

Wake up and smell the java.

FBI Informers, the Bundys, and Watering Horses

http://www.paulstramer.net/2017/04/fbi-informers-bundys-and-watering-horses.html

SAVING FREEDOM

By Anna Von Reitz

Ask yourself this question: if there are any “FBI Informants” operating in the take-down of the Colorado Grand Juries and State Justices— where are they?

Chances are they are in jail with the rest of the folks, so that they can continue to spy on and manipulate them from a position of trust.

They are certainly not standing here as I have been for yea, so many weeks, giving warning and instruction to people so that they might correct their ways and avoid arrest.

I hear that my name and that of Bella Haywood have been taken in vain and certain parties who are in fact to blame for this debacle have been accusing us of being traitors and informers and so on.

The plain fact is that if these people had followed our advice or even just paid attention to the Public Law they wouldn’t be arrested. There would be no big controversy.

I’ve also been getting a lot of mail about the Bundys. Save the Bundys! Save the Bundys!
The Bundys have had the benefit of my advice and the facts since Day One of their arrest. I explained it to them and I will explain it to all of you again.

United States Citizens and “citizens of the United States” have no constitutional rights. At most, they have “equal civil rights”– but those rights are at the discretion of the Congress and the courts. This is why that federal judge felt that she could afford to laugh in their faces and threaten them with contempt of court for mentioning The Constitution.

They are being tried under false presumptions in a court that is totally foreign to them. They are being tried as “US citizens” and with the possible exception of Ryan Bundy, they have done absolutely nothing to rebut that presumption.

They could get an authenticated copy of their Birth Certificate,  accept it as “Drawee” on the front of the document and then endorse it over on the back to the United States of America, U.S. Treasury Without Recourse— and make Steven T. Mnuchin the Fiduciary responsible for AMMON BUNDY, for example.
That would very neatly separate them from the PERSON that is on trial.

They could also post a very hefty Private Registered Indemnity Bond with the Treasury and use that to insure (indemnify) themselves against any charges brought against AMMON BUNDY—- which is just a ledger ACCOUNT that the rats in Nevada are bent on pillaging.

They could ask to see the Bid and Performance Bond related to their case. If they did this in open court the clerk would poop green goo, but have no choice but to produce the incriminating evidence.

They could then accept those Bid and Performance Bonds for Value, charge them off against their Indemnity Bond, and return it to the same laughing Judge and make her laugh out of the other side of her ugly face.
And if no Bid and Performance Bonds were forthcoming, the Prosecutor would have to pay for the whole proceedings out of his pocket and the Judge would have to dismiss.

There have to be two dozen things that they could do to walk out of that court as free men, but no, they won’t listen.

Just like Bruce Doucette wouldn’t listen. And Michael R. Hamilton won’t listen. And Randy Drew wouldn’t listen. And Terry Trussell wouldn’t listen. And Tim Turner wouldn’t listen. And so many, many, many others.
They all insist on calling themselves some kind of United States citizens. They all insist on answering to names. They all insist that they have constitutional rights when United States citizens have never had constitutional rights in over two hundred years…. They all have to try to snow the court under with fancy common law documents that don’t apply and reams of case law that don’t apply.

They just can’t connect to the fact that they are being dragged through a commercial court in international jurisdiction.

And when I try to tell them this, they pause, stare blankly at me, and then go right on with whatever they were doing anyway. It’s like the information hits a “bumper” in their brain and they just reject it like a pinball being tossed aside.

So, please, everyone, this is what I have had to deal with. It isn’t that I haven’t tried or failed my duty to share information or anything else. I have talked and shared until I am blue in the face—- to no avail.

You can lead a horse to water, but….. if the “horse” wants to go to jail, then at a certain point, you just step aside and let him.

Article 1, Section 8, Clause 17 – – Reply to Arnie Rosner

CONFUSSION

By Anna Von Reitz

Stop putting words in my mouth!  I never said there was no Constitution.  The original one is still in effect—so long as there are any actual American nationals and State Citizens willing to hold the rats accountable. 

Read Article I, Section 8, Clause 17.    It grants Congress the plenary government of the District of Columbia.  So they created the Territorial Government of the United States, and following the Insular Tariff Cases of 1900-1904, they created the Territorial States of States. 

Within the District of Columbia also exists the Municipality of Washington, DC—- which the Congress also enjoys plenary control of.  So they created the Municipal Government of the United States, too. 

And each of these has “citizens”—- Territorial Citizens and Municipal citizens. 

We are not naturally citizens of anything.  “Citizens” as I have too often tried to explain to you serve the government.  “Nationals” are the people the government is obliged to serve. 

But you all stupidly claim to be “citizens” and are proud of it, too.  Well, so long as you claim to be “citizens” you have no Constitutional rights and never did have in the entirety of the existence of this country.

So far as it goes, everything that they have done, they are allowed to do by Article 1, Section 8, Clause 17.  That’s what you and the rest of the flatheads down on the farm don’t get.  And that’s how you get in trouble.  You constantly mistake their territorial and municipal governments for the republican form of state government that we are owed, and which no longer operates because we are deluded and confused and have been defrauded into not operating our own government.

Though it is our right and duty to do so. 

I am so frustrated with you and with them that I could slap you all silly.  You are like drunks staggering around raging and butting your heads against the wall and talking nonsense.

 The Fifty States Claim Update

http://www.paulstramer.net/2017/04/the-fifty-states-claim-update.html

By Anna Von Reitz

It has come to my attention that there are still a lot of people left out in the dark regarding the Fifty States Claim and even some who woke up in alarm and thought that we’d missed the boat.
When all the crappola of the Civil War came down, there were people in America who were aware of the fraud and who objected to it.

In order to make their own actions “legal” but not “lawful” the renegade Rump Congress agreed to “grandfather in” those who were already in this country, if they expatriated back to their original native state jurisdiction. Anyone who didn’t would be presumed to be a “citizen of the United States”.
That’s how it came down in July of 1868 and that’s the way it remains to this day.

So as the vermin were busy liquidating their most recent fabricated government services corporation and bankrupting others in 2015, the American states (together with the people living in those states) were presented as sureties backing all this nonsense and the actual states— our land jurisdiction states— were up for grabs. Unless the Priority Creditors showed up and claimed the states back, the Secondary Creditors would be allowed to come in and seize everything in sight.

The banks and various other nations were slavering at the thought.
So I put out the call for white males above the age of 21 (the requirement back during the Civil War Era) who could prove that their ancestors were here back then. I asked them to execute Acts of Expatriation— which they did. Volunteers from the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints (Mormons) researched the family genealogies and we invoked the Grandfather Clause and the Expatriation Act to reclaim every sand particle of the fifty organic states of the union for the actual American states and people.

All that got done and done successfully. We made the international claim. We posted the Notices. We posted the Liens. We went back and recorded everything. We posted the sovereign bonds for each one of the fifty actual states and for all the people living in the states.

We also turned our attention to asset recovery, because there were billions upon billions of dollars worth of fungible assets belonging to the actual states that were also in limbo and under threat of being lost. So we alerted the military (which is responsible for safeguarding our money) and they jerked awake.
Since then, the military’s Asset Recovery Team has been responsible for repatriating billions of dollars worth of gold and silver to this country. It is estimated that it will take another six to nine months to collect our stuff back from all over the globe and from offshore accounts.

Someone had to deal with the international and commercial issues and someone had to make the effort to get the counties and states organized and the people educated enough to run their own government again.
Why do you think they had all those FEMA Camps set up, folks?

They were getting ready to open the doors and let their Creditors come in and seize your homes and land and businesses and everything else in sight as payment for their corporate debts.
We saved the land and its assets. We reclaimed the actual states. That much is done.

What remains is to educate and organize the American people and get them back in condition to run their actual government— first at the county level, then at the state level, and finally at the national level.
I have had to rely on volunteers to do this and they have not always known the right thing or done the right thing. It is also likely that to some extent the effort has been undermined by paid agents seeking to keep us all from regrouping and successfully reinstating our lawful government.

Be that as it may, we stand on the cusp of a new era.

Please pray throughout this week in whatever way you can for the well-being of the land and the people of this nation and of all nations.

ACTION

By Anna Von Reitz

Everyone –every American– needs to stop a moment and focus on this one true thought: that thing that you have thought of all your life as your government, isn’t your government.  

Say it over and over and over.  Write it down if you need to.  Really, truly, think about this fact and what it means: its not your government.  

Your government has been dormant, left on a shelf for 150 years. 

Repeat as many times as necessary.    

This circumstance was accomplished via fraud and deceit and illegal usurpation; as a result, you have a chance to restore your lawful and actual government. 

Repeat as many times as necessary.  

To restore your lawful government you have to decide to function as an American state national, for example, a Texan or a Wisconsinite,  not as a “United States citizen”.  

You need to inform the federal authorities of your decision and retire from any presumption of federal service. The exact means to do this quickly and cleanly is being refined and will be made available. 

The next step is to form your local unincorporated jural assemblies.  

The jural assemblies then restore your local unincorporated land jurisdiction government, including your county courts.  

The counties then form your lawful land jurisdiction state.  

The states then send delegates to a Continental Congress, and whatever changes need to be made, get made.  

This is the mission.  All other missions are subordinate to and depend on this one. 

This is a lot of work, but it isn’t insurmountable.  In the process of doing this work you will rediscover your history, restore your courts, fill your vacated public offices, and resume operation of your own lawful government.  

Because every county and state is unique and has its own history, this isn’t a cookie-cutter proposition.  

The good news is that other counties have broken the trail for you and they stand ready to help you. 

The Michigan General Jural Assembly hosts a nationwide conference call every Thursday night beginning at 9 p.m. Eastern Standard Time.  The call-in number is: 1-712-770-4160, Access Code: 226823#.  [Please note the change from “4170” to “4160”. I had the wrong number posted in a couple places—typo.]

They also host a website at: http://1stmichiganassembly.info

And from 2 p.m. to 7 p.m. Eastern Standard Time, Monday through Thursday, they have established a Hotline: 1-989-450-5522.   

 

Thanks to the Michigan General Jural Assembly, you won’t have to recreate the wheel and won’t have to face this daunting task alone.

Blood Oath Fulfilled

April 3rd, 2017 by

http://www.paulstramer.net/2017/04/blood-oath-fulfilled.html

BLOOD OATH

By Anna Von Reitz

Yes, I have a blood oath standing on the altar of the Universal Catholic Church.  Please note that the Universal Catholic Church is not the Roman Catholic Church, but the far, far greater Church at large.  

My Blood Oath clearly states to you— as it did to Cardinal George of Chicago (see the actual letter addressed to him that is part of my archive at www.annavonreitz.com)— that I was putting my life and soul at risk to bring forward the Great Fraud against the American states and people for remedy.

In fact, under ecclesiastical court rules, nobody who isn’t prepared to hazard their own life and soul against me in this matter is allowed to offer rebuttal.  And nobody has. 

Not a peep in rebuttal or denial of what I have said about the cheating and defrauding and press-ganging and breach of trust against the American states and people has ever been heard in the years since I placed my Blood Oath before the Vatican Chancery Court and the Holy See and I am sure that no such denial or rebuttal will ever be made, because what I have said is true and verifiable.

Anyone who tried to come against me would lose not only the argument, but would burn in eternal Hell according to Catholic Doctrine for placing my life and soul at risk for the sake of a self-interested lie.

It’s like playing poker.  When the bid is insurmountably high, nobody takes it.  And I placed the bid insurmountably high for the sake of the truth and my country and my countrymen and my True Lord, Jesus, who is not dead and not a dead body, either.

The Bible teaches that the soul is in the blood. 

So when you seal testimony in blood, it is sealing the truth of it with your soul. 

Most of you have been deposed or given statements before Notary Publics or vows before clergymen— promises that you have made to the best of your ability, oaths to tell the truth under penalty of perjury in admiralty courts, affirmations of truth in civil courts, and all of this is accepted as normal due process that people should be held accountable for telling the truth and should give some sign of consent to be punished if they are found to be willfully prevaricating. 

When you seal testimony in blood before the highest ecclesiastical and equity court in the world—-and you are bringing charges against the Roman Pontiffs and British Monarchs for fraud, theft, and breach of trust and commercial contract for the last 150 years– you had better believe that you have to post a bond backing your testimony in the most absolute and unequivocal terms possible: a blood oath. 

I knowingly, willingly hazarded my life and eternal soul as punishment for any willful lie— but I also called the Cardinals, Pontiffs, and Monarchs on the carpet under the same risk. 

The fact that not one of them offered as much as a whisper—ever—in rebuttal tells you that what I have said is true and that my judgment in the matter stands as The Law binding upon the court, the Holy See, and their property managers at the Vatican and also upon their vassal lords.  They quite literally have nothing to say and therefore have to accept my decisions and pay whatever remedy I demand. 

My decision was to redeem the Kingdom of God they created in the name of the Kingdom of Heaven, which is my Lord’s and founded on His Love, His Blood, His Soul, His Rule of Peace, His Law of Love, and His Father’s Law of Free Will. 

The world is so utterly messed up, so violent, so confused, so deluded, so full of excrement and idolatry and vengeance and stupidity and lies of every kind that it must be remade in a different form. 

The old paradigm of the Holy See was pagan in origin and based on the Doctrine of Scarcity, a cruel yoke which presumes that everyone is guilty and that there is never enough of any good thing.  As a result, all commercial economies were reduced to being run on a premise of eternal debt and indebtedness.  One could only pay one’s debts with more debts, sins with more sins, conflicts with more conflicts, until physical death released us from this Hell Hole that Satan and his servants made of it. 

Thus they had determined to live and force everyone else to live until such time as a physical manifestation of Jesus appeared and released the prisoners and redeemed the kingdom.  That has now been done.  Against all odds, I have appeared as His Fiduciary, fulfilled The Law and the Prophets, bound Satan, and My Lord has put him under my feet according to His Word. 

The new paradigm of the Holy See is to be made wholly in the image of Jesus and based on the Doctrine of Abundance, wherein every being is deemed innocent and there is enough of all things for men to live in peace and in the enjoyment of their own homes and where there is no such thing as debt held against us.  Instead, there will be credit afforded us, more than enough to fulfill the needs of every man, woman, and child, more than enough to build each community, clean up the environmental damage, and ensure that there is no longer any need for war or hunger or want or disease or death or crying. 

The entire debt-based system is being reversed and henceforth for 1,000 years it shall stand until the Final Test and the Lord of Heaven comes again.   

Your only requirement will be to keep the peace, love yourself and others equally, and respect the free will of others insofar as it hurts nothing. 

I would beg each one of you to make it your business to get up each day and make this world a better place, by whatever means you have, both small and great.

Beyond that, there is no true law, for our Father does not demand that you worship Him, though I say that all those who live and breathe and have their being in Him ought to worship our Father, for in All There Is there is nothing more or else or apart from Him to worship and so, all else is delusion—a matter of worshiping the creation instead of the Creator, or worshiping only a part of Him, as if He could be separated from Himself. 

Please bear in mind that aside from my willingness to serve Him, I have no great merit of my own; it is His Merit that has established the Kingdom of Heaven, His Wisdom that established its Law, and His Credit which pays all debts forevermore.  It is the Most Humble of the Most High who has won the Everlasting Victory and it is in His Name and the Name of His Kingdom that I have come and set my blood upon the cornerstone in defiance of The Lie and the Liars. 

So this is the meaning of my “Blood Oath” and this is why it was required of me and also all the many other years and ways of trial that brought me.

Those who are afraid of my Blood Oath have cause to be afraid, for it stands against their Master and his demons and all those who secretly serve him as the entrance to their grave; those who say that I have acted as an “agent of the Vatican” mistake my role and place, for I have not come to argue with property managers but to contend for the Throne of Grace.  

Surely, you have heard all your lives of Evil in High Places?  Surely, you have wondered how such Evil could be overthrown?   How, but for the Truth, issuing forth from His Mouth, who first named them the Synagogue of Satan?  How, but for the willingness of living flesh to obey Him and contest in the realm of the Spirit against the Princes of the Air? 

I am only a foot soldier of the True Lord; the equivalent of a lowly Lieutenant Colonel.

Try to imagine the glory that comes after?

BLOOD OATH

Continental, Federal, Territorial, and Municipal…..

March 26th, 2017 by

http://www.paulstramer.net/2017/03/continental-federal-territorial-and.html

Continental United States

By Anna Von Reitz

I know this is confusing, but until we all learn this basic information, there will continue to be confusion and chaos and all efforts to organize the lawful government we are owed will be crippled, so please take note and take the time to thoroughly understand the information:

There are actually four versions of “United States” we deal with all the time— we started out with two and that has grown to four over the past two hundred plus years.

The Continental United States consists of fifty geographically defined states, for example, Ohio, Florida, and Maine.  This is the United States belonging to the “free, independent and sovereign people of the United States” described in The Definitive Treaty of Peace, Paris, 1783.  This is why Revolutionary War troops were called “Continental Soldiers”.  These states together define the area over which the Public and Organic Law is exercised by the people (that is, state militias) acting as county and state jural assemblies—when and if they assemble and do their duty to self-govern.   These states defined and created The Constitution for the united States of America and that agreement in turn created both the Federal United States and the Territorial United States by splitting their own international jurisdiction  into “delegated” and “un-delegated” powers (Articles of Amendment X).

The Federal United States operates as fifty unincorporated politically defined States under names like “Ohio State” and “Florida State” and “Maine State” and these states control the undelegated portion of the international jurisdiction owed to the Continental United States.   These are all owed a “republican form of government” and operate under the United States Statutes at Large in international jurisdiction and State Session Laws at the state level.  These States are owed the Constitution of the United States of America

The Territorial United States operates as 57 entities— 50 “inchoate” incorporated States of States like the “State of California” and 7 Insular States (Guam, Puerto Rico, et alia)– that in turn administer the delegated “powers” in international jurisdiction.  These are all operated as franchises of the United States, Inc., and under the plenary power of Congress granted at Article I, Section 8, Clause 17, they are operated as democracies. They operate under State of State Statutes and Federal Code.  These states also operate under the Constitution of the United States of America.

The Municipal United States has also grown out of Article I, Section 8, Clause 17— this is a network of approximate 10,000 municipal city-state governments organized as municipalities and boroughs and STATES OF STATES  like the STATE OF LOUISIANA and incorporated counties like JACKSON COUNTY all organized under the Municipal Law of Washington, DC, which is an independent international city-state akin to the Vatican or the Inner City of London, and again, under the plenary power granted to Congress, these are run as oligarchies subject to whatever whim Congress may have. They operate under Public Policies and Martial Common Law.  These various municipal entities operate under the Constitution of the United States, and although this is a document we seldom see, it is the “constitution” that all the members of the Congress take their oaths to.

It is up to each one of us to know our correct political status and declare it.

Are we state nationals (not employed by any government in any capacity) or State Citizens (acting in some official capacity for our states) of the Continental United States?

Are we Federal Citizens?  (that is, employees, public officials, or dependents of the United States of America?)

Are we Territorial Citizens? (that is, employees, public officials, or dependents if the United States, Inc.?)

Are we Municipal Citizens?  (that is, employees, public officials or dependents of the UNITED STATES, INC.?)

You have a right to be confused.  And if you are reading this, you will shortly have cause to be outraged, too.

It is up to you to exercise dominion over the Continental United States by actively participating in your local county and state jural assemblies and acting as deputies in support of your locally elected land jurisdiction Sheriff and also joining your state militia. Most of us have been blissfully unaware of the necessity of doing this and our state republics have languished in a condition of zombie-like disuse for three generations, largely unoccupied and disserved.

The Federal United States has struggled along, but with fewer and fewer state nationals and State Citizens acting in support of the effort of maintaining our international presence as states and people of the Union, it has gradually dimmed away, unable to operate effectively for lack of funds.

Instead, the foreign Territorial United States and the Municipal United States run as profit-making commercial corporation enterprises have coerced their forms of “citizenship” on you and have seized upon your assets and have hypothecated debt against your labor, your businesses, your land, and your children’s children’s children.

As a result of similar names deceit and coercive action, you have applied for and the perpetrators have issued franchises in your NAME—- JOHN MICHAEL DOE and most recently, JOHN M. DOE—- and until you return the BIRTH CERTIFICATES related to these entities to the Secretary of the Treasury and appoint him your Fiduciary and tell him to return this (re-venue) these to the United States of America, U.S. Treasury, without recourse—- you continue to be “presumed” either a “United States Citizen” (Territorial) Corporation or a “citizen of the United States” (Municipal) Corporation.

And all your assets are held in thrall as collateral backing these foreign corporations, instead of supporting your actual lawful government.

Please bear in mind that there are no laws against raping, pillaging, murdering, press-ganging, pirating, or committing genocide against corporations.

Please bear in mind that mischaracterizing a living man as a corporation is a crime known as “personage”.

Please also bear in mind that the act of bringing charges against such a “PERSON” is also a crime known as “barratry”—-most infamously practiced by the Bar Associations.

This treason began in 1861 with the onset of the illegal commercial mercenary conflict mis-named “The American Civil War” and has been carried on ever since by the rogue members of Congress and the various corporate CEOs heading up both the USA, Inc. and the US, Inc.

It’s time to put an end to it, and that can only be done by informing, educating, motivating, and properly organizing literally millions of Americans.

Continental United States

Our mission is to restore the lawful government that is owed to us.

March 25th, 2017 by

http://www.paulstramer.net/2017/03/our-mission-is-to-restore-lawful.html

Lawful Government

By Anna Von Reitz

Our lawful government, sometimes called the “de jure” government, is called the United States of America.  The United States of America has been undermined from within by a commercial corporation calling itself the United States, which is under contract to our states to provide “essential government services”.  (See the Definitive Treaty of Peace, Paris, 1783 and Article IV.)

The United States is controlled by the Pope and the British Monarch and operated by a Board of Trustees calling itself the United States Congress.

The United States went rogue during and after the so-called American Civil War and just neglected to tell anyone.

Ever since, the United States has been in one kind of “war” after another— the war on poverty and the war on drugs and the war on terrorism— as well as endless nasty political and police actions for profit.

Yet the Civil War wasn’t really a war at all.  It was an illegal commercial mercenary action carried out on our shores.  It was never declared by the Congress.  It was never ended by a peace treaty.

President Andrew Johnson declared peace in public three times, and created a contract for peace, but that’s not the same thing as a peace treaty.

Obviously, the Popes and the British Monarchs and the people we so trustingly sent to Congress to represent us have failed to do the job. They have acted in Breach of Trust and commercial contract for 150 years right under our noses.

They have used us as “muscle” to carry on endless wars for profit and illegal police actions throughout the world.  They’ve neglected our country’s needs and stolen it blind while at the same time killing millions of innocent people and they have blamed us for it all.

Now they are targeting the people of China to take our place as the Bully Boys of the world.  They have sent their bankers and lawyers and tons of our gold to China, intending to set up shop again and pull the same old crap over there.

We’ve been stupid, folks, for a very long time.

None of us remember a legitimate and fully functioning American government. All we know is the slow parasitic rot imposed on us by the British Monarchs and the Pope and the politicians in control of the United States.

It’s no wonder that millions of Americans detest what they think of as their government, but what everyone worldwide needs to understand is that that thing in Washington, DC, isn’t our government.

The United States, Inc., is a foreign corporation in the business of providing governmental services—hence the reason it is called a “de facto” government.

It is really just an adjunct to our lawful government, like a catering service or housekeeping service, that our ancestors subscribed to.

Given all this, it is apparent that America has been tragically deceived and defrauded and off track for a very long time.

People around the world have grown to hate Americans and we have been blamed for the actions of the United States, which is nothing but a gigantic multi-national commercial corporation gone wild.

It should surprise no one that the United States has used crooked bookkeeping to embezzle trillions of dollars out of our economy, and then, on top of it, has claimed that we didn’t pay them and that they are trillions of dollars in debt, and are seeking bankruptcy protection because of it.

This is the complete and utter mess that Donald J. Trump has inherited, and it is all directly attributable to the Popes, the British Monarchs, the treasonous members of Congress and the puppet Presidents who have run this country into the ground and worked to enslave the American people for the last 150 years.

The “frog” is now well and truly boiled, but still alive.  And the “frog” is angry. That’s understood.  It is painful and scary to wake up and realize that the men and institutions you placed your faith in all your life have grossly betrayed you.

Bear in mind that the men and institutions guilty of these horrific crimes against us and against the entire rest of the world, have no friends left.

They are trapped with the Americans on one side and the rest of the world on the other.  The British people have been just as shamelessly abused as we have, quite possibly more.

From both within and without, then, these hateful monsters have carried out their war against Mankind and have used the churches and what appeared to be lawful governments as storefronts for their parasitic activities.

At the end of the day, who is responsible?

As a short list– the Popes, the British Monarchs, the Lord Mayors of London, the Lords of the Admiralty, the British Parliament, the US Congress, the government corporations of the European nations, Japan, Canada, Australia—-are all in the frying pan.

The entire Earth is overdue for a political housecleaning, and Donald J. Trump has landed himself in one helluva position to be in.

We, Americans, like the rest of the world have every reason to despise the renegade United States.  We have every reason to rise up and murder the members of Congress and desecrate Washington, DC, yes, every reason to raze it to the ground and piss on the graves of those who would defend it.

We have cause to do that, but we would be supremely stupid to do that.

Instead, we need to keep calm and get even.

The entire world now knows what has gone on here.  They know who the guilty parties are.  They are looking to us for leadership to find the way forward and they won’t be disappointed.

We’ve looked back to our roots to find ourselves again.  All across the country county and state jural assemblies are gathering.  Day by day, Americans are waking up and returning the false gift of “US PERSONS” that have been foisted off on us.

Those who have defrauded and abused us are being recognized as international criminals.  Their foreign duplicitous Satanic religion is being recognized for what it is— a reprise of Ancient Babylon brought forward like a cancer concealed in the Roman Catholic Church.

Even the members of the US Congress are beginning to wake up.  Trey Gowdy and Rand Paul aren’t the only ones speaking our language anymore.

Quietly, with great resolve, America — the real America—-is on the move.

Our goal isn’t to destroy the United States, but to take back our rightful control of it and get to the bottom of the criminality infesting it.  As we go, we are learning our own history and filling the vacated offices that our lawful government is owed.

We are going to completely restore our lawful Common Law court system, which is owed to the people of this country.  We are going to sort out the crooked government bookkeeping and dispose of the “National Debt”.  We are going to bust the foreign media cartels.  We are going to secure our borders, mind our business, and let the chips fall as they may.

In the midst of this humongous endeavor, it is imperative for everyone to stay grounded and think things through.  None of this is rocket science, but it took 150 years for this situation to develop. We can expect the clean up to last more than a decade.  Meantime, the sky is not falling.  We are not broke.  We have the power to change things peacefully using Due Process and our own Public Law.

What could go wrong?

We could trust the wrong people again.

That is the chief danger we face. There are among us paid provocateurs and an equally common breed of opportunists eager to seize power for power’s sake.

These Bad Actors always show their colors eventually, so pay close attention to both words and deeds.

We now have among us men who are preaching a False Gospel.  They are saying, “Hey, we are the people!  We can do anything we want!”

The same thing can be said of any gang of outlaws— until the rest of us catch up with them.

Men who have been oppressed by a commercial corporation masquerading as their own government have a right to be angry, but our power and our just cause lies in restoring our rightful and lawful government, complete with its system of checks and balances intact, so that nobody and nothing can oppress any of us again.  Otherwise, we merely jump from one oppression to another.

Our very greatest danger is that some demagogue like Hitler will arise from our disillusionment and discontent and like the Pied Piper, lead the world down the road to senseless war again.

We’ve heard that tune and followed it too many times before.

The greatness of America does not lie in our force of arms, but in our generosity of heart.  Our future does not lie in the mind of any one man, but in the hopes and dreams of us all.

I have done my level best to clue you in and teach you right from wrong. I have been a faithful guide and defender of the innocent, a proponent of peaceful and orderly and lawful change.

God willing, I will be here a while longer to help guide the work, but in the meantime it is imperative for every American to study their own history, learn the structure of their own government, and stop being gullible.

Turn your Shinola Sensors on “High”.

And like the song says, “Don’t get fooled again!”

Mayhem and Misunderstanding in Illinois

March 21st, 2017 by

http://www.paulstramer.net/2017/03/mayhem-and-misunderstanding-in-illinois.html

MayhemBy Anna Von Reitz

Illinois lies in the Midwest on the Great Lakes and is politically dominated by the massive Chicago urban center, yet for all the numbers of people in the City of Chicago and Cook County in particular, Cook County remains a county like any other, limited by its own geographic parameters.

This is part of the genius of the American Way.  Cook County may have far more people in it than other counties in Illinois.  It may be wealthier by far.  It may have different problems and different options for solving its problems. At the end of the day, it’s still a county circumscribed and limited by its own borders.

Like every other county in America, it may choose to conduct its day to day business using an incorporated franchise of the United States, Inc. — or not.  

The county becomes eligible for federal corporation kickbacks known as “federal revenue sharing” when it “enfranchises” itself,  but it also becomes liable for federal taxation and federal regulation, becoming a virtual rubber stamp for whatever policies the privately owned and operated foreign corporation doing business as the “United States” decrees.

Like every other county in America, Cook County is ultimately and actually owned by the people living in Cook County.  They get to decide whether or not to operate their county government as a federal franchise or not.  This unincorporated body politic gets to assemble itself whenever an American state national living in Cook County gives a 30 day Notice and announces a public meeting of the Land Jurisdiction Cook County Assembly. 

This is not the corporate version of “Cook County Assembly”. 

This is the actual Body Politic as opposed to a “representational” body. 

Instead of handing their proxies to an agent elected to act in their stead as a member of the Board of Directors of Cook County, Inc. calling himself an “Assemblyman”, the people have the absolute retained right to conduct their own business and to bypass the use of any agent to do their business.  It’s the difference between sending your servant to town to conduct your business for you, and doing it yourself.

Whereas anyone can be elected to serve as an “Assemblyman” for Cook County, Inc., including lawyers and US CITIZENS, not just anyone can be a member of the actual Cook County Assembly. 

The actual unincorporated Cook County Assembly is composed of American state nationals and Illinois State Citizens living in Cook County, Illinois.  They have to be either natural born or naturalized Illinoisans and they have to be claiming that political status in order to be members of the actual, unincorporated Cook County Assembly.

The people properly claiming their birth right political status are then enabled to crack the whip and tell the members of the Cook County Assembly, Inc. what to do and how to do it, and can even tell the “Assemblymen” elected to serve on the board of Cook County, Inc. to dissolve Cook County, Inc. and resume operations as an unincorporated county.

This means an end to federal corporation kickbacks, but it also means an end to federal taxation and federal debt obligations, federal regulation and corruption in general.

As in all other counties, Cook County is defined by its geographic borders.  It is a recognizable land mass. The American people living within its borders make up its Assembly.  There is only one Assembly per county in America, by definition. 

A county may have townships or, in the Deep South, it may have parishes; these are smaller political subunits within the county that often have their own Town Halls or Parish Centers and these may be organized to locally select delegates to the County Assembly, or not.  It just depends on how the local government within the county structures itself and how Assemblymen are chosen. 

All the same circumstances apply to organized townships and parishes.  The people living in those townships and parishes can choose to run their township or parish as an incorporated franchise of the private, mostly foreign-owned United States, Inc. and let anyone serve as their “Assemblymen”— or they can assemble themselves, foreswear federal kickbacks in favor of freedom from federal taxes, debts, and regulations, and run their own local government at both the township/parish level and the county level.

These American people are not “United States Citizens” nor are they “citizens of the United States”.  They are native born or naturalized Americans living in their geographically defined state of the Union. They are known as Illinoisans, Texans, Wisconsinites, and so on.  They are the actual owners of everything in sight, the sovereigns of the land jurisdiction states. 

And it is long past due for them to return home to the land they are heir to.

Okay, so now we have Cook County, Illinois, back on the map.  The actual people have given the necessary public notice of a meeting of the Land Jurisdiction Cook County Assembly. 

The people attending this meeting must provide proof of their declared political status. This proof includes a Witnessed and recorded Act of Expatriation, renouncing any United States or other citizenship, and claiming back their political status as Illinoisans.  It also includes proof that they have surrendered any US PERSON(S) issued to them via Birth Certificates, by returning and endorsing these Birth Certificates back to the Secretary of the Treasury, crediting the United States of America, U.S. Treasury, without recourse.

They are now free of any presumption of voluntarily acting as United States Citizens or as citizens of the United States.  They emerge as the Priority Creditors and Underwriters of the United States, Inc. and all its Territorial States of States and all its Municipal franchises.

They are free men and women, attending to the business of their own county, acting through a lawful County Assembly and there is only one each such Assembly owed to every county in America.

This County Assembly is enabled to elect its own Sheriff to serve the land jurisdiction county, to uphold the public and organic law of Illinois and the United States of America.  He is then the top peacekeeping officer in Cook County.  He outranks – by far – all the hired police, all the detectives, all the commissioners on the incorporated “Cook County, Inc.” payroll.

The actual Cook County Assembly can also elect its own justices (Justices of the Peace) and its own Court Clerks and its own Bailiffs, Coroners, and other court officers. 

There isn’t a corporation anywhere, inside or outside of the borders of Cook County, who has a right or a word to say otherwise, because within the borders of Cook County, the actual Cook County Assembly holds the absolute power of self-determination for that county and the people living in it. They can purge and pitch any law or statute put in place by “Cook County, Inc.” and they can choose to dissolve Cook County, Inc. and put an unincorporated business that is under their direct control in its place.

It should now be clear just how vital your participation in your own local government is, and how that participation or lack thereof impacts every aspect of your daily life. 

It also makes clear how important your political status is.  As a United States Citizen you are “presumed” to be a federal corporation employee.  As a “citizen of the United States” you are presumed to be a slave owned by the federal corporation doing business as the “United States”. 

Unless you are actually employed by the federal government as a military or federal civilian employee, why would you ever claim to be a United States Citizen, subject to federal Territorial law?   Unless you were truly desperate for political asylum or other aid of some kind, why would you ever agree to be considered a slave and chattel owned by the United States, Inc.?  Nobody in their right mind would knowingly and willingly choose that fate, instead of being a free man.

In the last several days I have been in communication with several assemblies beginning or having begun their meetings and organization efforts in Illinois.  Many questions have surfaced about how to create an assembly, how to establish correct political status for its members, how to give public notices, hold elections, and in general—-how is everything supposed to work? 

Does the Assembly have the power to unseat a Grand Jury member or administrator?  — And so on.

[Grand Juries are totally independent of Assembly action once they are created and functioning on their own. They direct their own affairs, hire and fire their own administrators, etc. The County Assembly can impeach a whole Grand Jury that proves ineffective or unwilling to perform and can replace it with a new Grand Jury, just as a Trial Jury can be replaced from the jury pool for cause— but an Assembly is not allowed to meddle in the internal affairs of a sitting Grand Jury.  Any other arrangement would quickly render the Grand Jury a political tool instead of an instrument of justice.

These and many, many other questions have already been answered by the longest-running Post-Civil War American State Jural Assembly—the Michigan General Jural Assembly.  They have written the book on the subject that everyone needs to know more about.  They host a National Assembly Training Call every week on Thursday nights: 1-712-770-4170, Access Number 226823#, and they can be reached via email at http://1stmichiganassembly.info

As you reorganize your county assemblies and state assemblies and take back control of your counties, your states, and your lives— make use of the knowledge, experience, and resources of the Michigan General Jural Assembly.  

A new handbook about the Grand Jury as an institution is on the way.

The Banking Secret, Which Makes the Fatcats Richer, While Destroying the Real Economy

March 16th, 2017 by

That Neither Economists nor Laypeople Know…

Washington’s Blog

Private Banks – Not the Government or Central Banks – Create 97 Percent of All Money

Who creates money?

Most people assume that money is created by governments … or perhaps central banks.

In reality – as noted by the Bank of England, Britain’s central bank – 97% of all money in circulation is created by private banks.

Bank Loans = Creating Money Out of Thin Air

But how do private banks create money?

We’ve all been taught that banks first take in deposits, and then they loan out those deposits to folks who want to borrow.

But this is a myth …

The Bank of England the German central bank have explained that loans are extended before deposits exist … and that the loans create deposits:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CvRAqR2pAgw

The above is from an official video released by the Bank of England.

The Bank of England explains:

Whenever a bank makes a loan, it simultaneously creates a matching deposit in the borrower’s bank account, thereby creating new money.

The reality of how money is created today differs from the description found in some economics textbooks:

  • Rather than banks receivingdeposits when households save and then lending them out, bank lending creates

***

One common misconception is that banks act simply as intermediaries, lending out the deposits that savers place with them. In this view deposits are typically ‘created’ by the saving decisions of households, and banks then ‘lend out’ those existing deposits to borrowers, for example to companies looking to finance investment or individuals wanting to purchase houses.

***

In reality in the modern economy, commercial banks are the creators of deposit money …. Rather than banks lending out deposits that are placed with them, the act of lending creates deposits — the reverse of the sequence typically described in textbooks.

***

Commercial banks create money, in the form of bank deposits, by making new loans. When a bank makes a loan, for example to someone taking out a mortgage to buy a house, it does not typically do so by giving them thousands of pounds worth of banknotes. Instead, it credits their bank account with a bank deposit of the size of the mortgage. At that moment, new money is created. For this reason, some economists have referred to bank deposits as ‘fountain pen money’, created at the stroke of bankers’ pens when they approve loans.

***

This description of money creation contrasts with the notion that banks can only lend out pre-existing money, outlined in the previous section. Bank deposits are simply a record of how much the bank itself owes its customers. So they are a liability of the bank, not an asset that could be lent out.

Similarly, the Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago published a booklet called “Modern Money Mechanics” in the 1960s stating:

[Banks] do not really pay out loans from the money they receive as deposits. If they did this, no additional money would be created. What they do when they make loans is to accept promissory notes in exchange for credits to the borrowers’ transaction accounts.

Monetary expert and economics professor Randall Wray explained to Washington’s Blog that:

Bank deposits are bank IOUs.

Economics professor Richard Werner – who obtained his PhD in economics from Oxford, was the first Shimomura Fellow at the Research Institute for Capital Formation at the Development Bank of Japan, Visiting Researcher at the Institute for Monetary and Economic Studies at the Bank of Japan, Visiting Scholar at the Institute for Monetary and Fiscal Studies at the Ministry of Finance, and chief economist of Jardine Fleming – was granted access to study a bank’s books, and confirmed that private banks create money when they simply create fictitious deposits into a borrower’s account.

Werner explains:

What banks do is to simply reclassify their accounts payable items arising from the act of lending as ‘customer deposits’, and the general public, when receiving payment in the form of a transfer of bank deposits, believes that a form of money had been paid into the bank.

***

No balance is drawn down to make a payment to the borrower.

***

The bank does not actually make any money available to the borrower: No transfer of funds from anywhere to the customer or indeed the customer’s account takes place. There is no equal reduction in the balance of another account to defray the borrower. Instead, the bank simply re-classified its liabilities, changing the ‘accounts payable’ obligation arising from the bank loan contract to another liability category called ‘customer deposits’.

While the borrower is given the impression that the bank had transferred money from its capital, reserves or other accounts to the borrower’s account (as indeed major theories of banking, the financial intermediation and fractional reserve theories, erroneously claim), in reality this is not the case. Neither the bank nor the customer deposited any money, nor were any funds from anywhere outside the bank utilised to make the deposit in the borrower’s account. Indeed, there was no depositing of any funds.

***

The bank’s liability is simply re-named a ‘bank deposit’.

***

Banks create money when they grant a loan: they invent a fictitious customer deposit, which the central bank and all users of our monetary system, consider to be ‘money’, indistinguishable from ‘real’ deposits not newly invented by the banks. Thus banks do not just grant credit, they create credit, and simultaneously they create money.

***

Instead of discharging their liability to pay out loans, the banks merely reclassify their liabilities originating from loan contracts from what should be an ‘accounts payable’ item to ‘customer deposit’ ….

How Can Banks DO This?

Professor Werner explains the reason that banks – but no one else – can create money out of thin air is that they are the only institution exempted from normal accounting rules.

Specifically, every other company would be busted for fraudulent accounting if they conjured new money out of thin air by reclassifying a liability (i.e. an accounts payable) as an asset (i.e. a deposit).

But the banks have pushed through exemptions so that they don’t have to follow normal accounting rules:

What enables banks to create credit and hence money is their exemption from the Client Money Rules. Thanks to this exemption they are allowed to keep customer deposits on their own balance sheet. This means that depositors who deposit their money with a bank are no longer the legal owners of this money. Instead, they are just one of the general creditors of the bank whom it owes money to. It also means that the bank is able to access the records of the customer deposits held with it and invent a new ‘customer deposit’ that had not actually been paid in, but instead is a re-classified accounts payable liability of the bank arising from a loan contract.

***

What makes banks unique and explains the combination of lending and deposit-taking under one roof is the more fundamental fact that they do not have to segregate client accounts, and thus are able to engage in an exercise of ‘re-labelling’ and mixing different liabilities, specifically by re-assigning their accounts payable liabilities incurred when entering into loan agreements, to another category of liability called ‘customer deposits’.

What distinguishes banks from non-banks is their ability to create credit and money through lending, which is accomplished by booking what actually are accounts payable liabilities as imaginary customer deposits, and this is in turn made possible by a particular regulation that renders banks unique: their exemption from the Client Money Rules. [Werner gives a concrete example on British law for banking and non-banking institutions.]

Sound fraudulent? Professor Werner thinks so, also:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MechH0ebs_c

But he also makes some more important points …

What Does It All Mean?  The Implications of Money Creation By Private Banks

Mainstream economists believe that private debt doesn’t even “exist as a force that acts on the economy.  For example, Ben Bernanke and Paul Krugman assume that huge levels of household debt don’t hurt the economy because more debt among households just means that savers have loaned them money … i.e. that it is a net wash to the economy.  To make this assumption, they rely on the myth debunked above … that banks can only loan as much money out as they have in deposits.  In reality, 143 years of history shows that excessive private debt – in and of itself  – can cause depressions.

Moreover, Professor Werner points out that attempts to shore up the banking system with capital requirements (such as the Basel accords) are doomed to failure, since they don’t recognize that banks create money at will:

Basel rules were doomed to failure, since they consider banks as financial intermediaries, when in actual fact they are the creators of the money supply. Since banks invent money as fictitious deposits, it can be readily shown that capital adequacy based bank regulation does not have to restrict bank activity: banks can create money and hence can arrange for money to be made available to purchase newly issued shares that increase their bank capital. In other words, banks could simply invent the money that is then used to increase their capital. This is what Barclays Bank did in 2008, in order to avoid the use of tax money to shore up the bank’s capital: Barclays ‘raised’ £5.8 bn in new equity from Gulf sovereign wealth investors — by, it has transpired, lending them the money! As is explained in Werner (2014a), Barclays implemented a standard loan operation, thus inventing the £5.8 bn deposit ‘lent’ to the investor. This deposit was then used to ‘purchase’ the newly issued Barclays shares. Thus in this case the bank liability originating from the bank loan to the Gulf investor transmuted from (1) an accounts payable liability to (2) a customer deposit liability, to finally end up as (3) equity — another category on the liability side of the bank’s balance sheet. Effectively, Barclays invented its own capital. This certainly was cheaper for the UK tax payer than using tax money. As publicly listed companies in general are not allowed to lend money to firms for the purpose of buying their stocks, it was not in conformity with the Companies Act 2006 (Section 678, Prohibition of assistance for acquisition of shares in public company). But regulators were willing to overlook this. As Werner (2014b) argues, using central bank or bank credit creation is in principle the most cost-effective way to clean up the banking system and ensure that bank credit growth recovers quickly. The Barclays case is however evidence that stricter capital requirements do not necessary prevent banks from expanding credit and money creation, since their creation of deposits generates more purchasing power with which increased bank capital can also be funded.

Moreover, Werner points out that banks create the boom-bust cycle by lending too much for speculative, non-productive purposes:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MechH0ebs_c

By failing to take into account the fact that banks create money, economists and governments are sowing the seeds for future crashes.

But the economics field is very resistant to change …

Economics professor Steve Keen notes in Forbes:

In any genuine science, empirical data like this would have forced the orthodoxy to rethink its position. But in economics, the profession has sailed on, blithely unaware of how their model of “banks as intermediaries between savers and investors” is seriously wrong, and now blinds them to the remedy for the crisis as it previously blinded them to the possibility of a crisis occurring.

A wit once defined an economist as someone who, when shown that something works in practice, replies “Ah! But does it work in theory?”

And a 2016 IMF paper notes:

Around [the 1960s] banks began to completely disappear from most macroeconomic models of how the economy works.­

This helps explain why, when faced with the Great Recession in 2008, macroeconomics was initially unprepared to contribute much to the analysis of the interaction of banks with the macro economy. Today there is a sizable body of research on this topic, but the literature still has many difficulties.­

***

Virtually all recent mainstream neoclassical economic research is based on the highly misleading “intermediation of loanable funds” description of banking …

***

In modern neoclassical intermediation of loanable funds theories, banks are seen as intermediating real savings. Lending, in this narrative, starts with banks collecting deposits of previously saved real resources (perishable consumer goods, consumer durables, machines and equipment, etc.) from savers and ends with the lending of those same real resources to borrowers. But such institutions simply do not exist in the real world. There are no loanable funds of real resources that bankers can collect and then lend out. Banks do of course collect checks or similar financial instruments, but because such instruments—to have any value—must be drawn on funds from elsewhere in the financial system, they cannot be deposits of new funds from outside the financial system. New funds are produced only with new bank loans (or when banks purchase additional financial or real assets), through book entries made by keystrokes on the banker’s keyboard at the time of disbursement. This means that the funds do not exist before the loan and that they are in the form of electronic entries—or, historically, paper ledger entries—rather than real resources.­

***

This “financing through money creation” function of banks has been repeatedly described in publications of the world’s leading central banks—see McLeay, Radia, and Thomas (2014a, 2014b) for excellent summaries. What has been much more challenging, however, is the incorporation of these insights into macroeconomic models [how true].

What’s the Solution?

We’ve seen the problems created by failing to take into account the fact that private banks create money.

But there are solutions …

Initially, Professor Werner notes that preventing banks from creating new money to loan for speculation and mere personal consumption would prevent booms and busts:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MechH0ebs_c

Werner says that the “Asian Miracle” happened for exactly this reason:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MechH0ebs_c

Additionally, allowing small community banks to grow would cause the real economy to flourish … since small banks loan to small businesses (which create most of the jobs), while big banks only loan to giant companies and speculators:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MechH0ebs_c

Indeed, big banks are virtually out of the business of traditional lending … and small banks are the only ones funding Main Street.

Werner says this is the secret of Germany’s economic success:

Postscript: Due to their unique money-printing powers, banks now literally own the world … including the entire political system.

There’s a war raging in connection with banking.  Remember that the giant banks tried to kill off community banking through the Trans Pacific Partnership. And as Professor Werner points out, the European Central Bank is currently in a war to destroy community banks:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MechH0ebs_c

One of key battles for prosperity and democracy today is decentralization of the banking system.

What We Know About YOU”

March 8th, 2017 by

http://www.paulstramer.net/2017/03/what-we-know-about-you.html

The IRSBy Anna Von Reitz

Here is what we know so far— the “UNITED STATES” subrogated our NAMES under an insurance policy.  This was required because they are still operating under the Reconstruction Acts and trying to pretend that we are “unknown” babies “found” on a “battlefield” by the UNITED STATES DEPARTMENT OF DEFENSE which is obligated then to issue an insurance indemnity receipt under the provisions of the Lieber Code.  The Birth Certificate is an insurance indemnity receipt and it identifies YOU as being a ward of the UNITED STATES DEPARTMENT OF DEFENSE, in their custody. 

But what is “YOU”— ?  

It’s an ACCOUNT, as in bank ACCOUNT set up in your name….. first of all.  And from that meager beginning they have spun off an array of “associated” names and accounts—- until in 1976 they had redefined “YOU” as an “International Organization”.  That same year, they passed the International Organizations Act granting “YOU” immunity. 

Okay, so your NAME is an ACCOUNT belonging to an International Organization which is immune from prosecution…..and all this is news to you, right? 

Well, howsoever that may be, this explains two things that have long been a matter of curiosity and debate.

When you look up the federal government “Masterfile” associated with your NAME you find that “YOU” are always without exception involved in some kind of nefarious occupation having to do with Alcohol, Tobacco, or Firearms.   When I tunneled through the red tape and the “Special Code Book” that deciphers all the numerical codes found in “YOUR” Masterfile, it turned out that “I” was running a rum distillery on the island of Barbados……and my husband was an arms dealer in South America!     

This was big— and at the time—-baffling news to us.

Obviously, neither one of us had ever done any such thing, but that is what the Masterfile attached to our NAMES said.

Please note that Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms are all federally controlled substances—-they can tax these for revenue and control transportation of these products and license people engaged in these industries. 

So now you can understand why the Masterfiles associated with our NAMES were involved in producing alcohol and selling firearms —- to bring our NAMES under US Government control and subject “US” to their codes, regulations, controls. 

So if our NAMES are international organizations that are supposed to have immunity from prosecution— how is it that these NAMES are being prosecuted as DEFENDANTS in all these courts?

Remember that these things that appear to be NAMES aren’t.  They are ACCOUNT designators.  Just like you can arbitrarily create an account designator using numbers — for example, bank routing numbers — you can use letters, too.  And that is what these unspeakable vermin did.  They used the letters of your name to create an ACCOUNT.   They could just as well have used “SSRDAEGR” as your account designation or “1442351-BA445” or anything else in the wide world, but instead they infringed upon your given name and used those letters in that particular sequence as the account designator for the express purpose of confusing you (and nearly everyone else) and defrauding you. 

So, thinking of “YOUR NAME” as an ACCOUNT designation instead of as your name, what immediately appears? 

Ah, so….. an ACCOUNT has a plus side and a minus side.   Assets come in one side as additions to the ACCOUNT and debts come in the other side of the ACCOUNT as subtractions to the ACCOUNT.  When you subtract the debts from the assets you “balance” the account and can see how much you have left after paying off the debts and you will either have a positive remaining balance or you will be overdrawn. 

So what did the rotten vermin do?  They set your ACCOUNT up as two separate linked ACCOUNTS. 

All the debts are posted against the ACCOUNT that appears to be your name, for example, JOHN MARK BROWN and placed under a numbered sub-account that you will recognize as “YOUR” Social Security or Taxpayer Identification Number: 123-45-6789. 

All the assets are posted to the ACCOUNT that appears to be your name, for example, BROWN, JOHN MARK and placed under a numbered sub-account that is the same as “YOUR” Social Security or Taxpayer Identification Number in this form: 123456789.   Same number, just without the dashes. 

Then to make the fraud scheme complete, you create two different agencies to do the bookkeeping.

You make the IRS responsible for tracking and collecting the debt side account.  And you make THE INTERNAL REVENUE SERVICE responsible for tracking the asset side of the account.  Two completely different agencies, different addresses, different offices, different job assignments —both working under deceptively similar names—-and for the most part unaware of the other’s activities, and then heavily compartmentalized within each agency so that one hand really doesn’t know what the other is doing for the most part—–and you make sure that the accounts never get balanced

The debts just keep accruing until the Account Holder pays them out of his own pocket, and the assets never get applied.  And since the “Account Holder” — the real man named John Mark Brown doesn’t know a thing about any of this, he never gets to use or enjoy any of the assets being socked away in slush funds under his NAME. 

Only one “side” of the ACCOUNT is immune—- the asset side.  It has to be that way, because remember that the DEPARTMENT OF DEFENSE is on the hook guaranteeing that YOU come to no harm. 

The debt side of the ACCOUNT is totally open to attack.

So the vermin bring their claim as a debt addressed against the debt side account, JOHN MARK BROWN, and drag “HIM” and the Account Holder into court demanding payment.  And good ole clueless Account Holder John Mark Brown pays it out of his own pocket, because they force him to do so.  He either pays it, or they turn off HIS lights stop picking up HIS garbage and send armed robbers acting under color of law to evict HIM from HIS house. 

The IRS does the same thing— they address their claims of tax indebtedness to HIM and unless the Account Holder pays, “HE” gets hauled into court and accused of all sorts of crimes and assessed all sorts of fines and late fees and if these aren’t paid up and settled, the Account Holder gets thrown in jail. 

Are you all following along here and grasping how this has been done to you and how you have been endlessly fleeced, coerced, defrauded, cheated, bilked, and extorted by this “System”? 

Oh, it’s a “System” all right—- in true gangland terminology, it’s a “System” that would make the Mafia blush. 

And it has been here operating full tilt on your soil without a valid excuse in the world for being here since 1934.

It has been cranking away with the full knowledge of the Roman Pontiff, the Holy See, the Vatican, the British Crown, the Lord Mayor of London, the Queen, and the various “US Presidents” who are all fully responsible for defrauding the American states and people.

How have they gotten away with it?  By coercive abuse of power — extortion, racketeering, kidnapping, identity theft, copyright infringement—- and all under the false pretense of still being at “war” ever since the so-called American Civil War and having “War Powers”.

As long as we are on the subject of fraud— which has no statute of limitations at all — the so-called “American Civil War” was not a war.  It was an illegal and unlawful mercenary conflict carried out on our shores.   How do we know this?

In order to be a true war and to fall under the international Laws of War, it would have to have a formal Declaration of War made by the national body competent to make such a declaration.  No such declaration exists.  Oh, Abraham Lincoln made “a” declaration beginning the hostilities, but he wasn’t authorized to actually declare war —- and he didn’t.  Likewise, there is no actual Peace Treaty ending any such war.  And there is absolutely no provision for any special “War Powers” or “Emergency Powers” granted by the actual states and people to the United States Congress, either. 

So how have they been cooking all this crap up?  That is the subject of our book, “You Know Something is Wrong When…..An American Affidavit of Probable Cause” available on amazon.com.

Olddogs Comments!

I have been cussed out, belittled and threatened for what the idiots call a lack of patriotism, but it is insanity to love your enemy, so please consider I can love my country without worshipping the vermin running it. I have paid for the privilege of being an American many times over, so stick your insults where the sun don’t shine, and continue bowing down to your masters since you are so patriotic. OR, you can do a little reading and rub a couple brain cells together to stimulate some common sense and send these bastards to hell, where they came from.

THE CONSTITUTION

March 2nd, 2017 by

This article is posted on both sites today due to its importance, as some of you read only what you are interested in.

http://annavonreitz.com/theconstitution.pdf

CONSTITUTIONBy Anna Von Reitz

There are a number of questions that must be asked— and answered— by each one of us.  Before asking the first and most fundamental question and not inviting anyone to blurt out any answers at this point, I want to make my own position clear.

I do not now and have never advocated any act of violence, insurrection, or treason against the Constitution.

I view the actual Constitution as a flawed contract, but a contract that provides us with protections and guarantees we would not have otherwise.  Those protections and guarantees are supremely valuable once we place ourselves in a position wherein we can exercise them.

So let’s begin with what the actual Constitution is— and let’s make it clear that when I say “The” Constitution or use the singular form of the word, I am talking about the real American deal —and when I use the plural form of the word, I am talking about constitutions in general as a class of legal instruments.  

All constitutions, then, are debt agreements— and so is ours.

These debt agreements are generally divided into two classes— equity constitutions and service constitutions, and in some cases, like ours—-both equity and service are involved in the contract itself.

The equity is in the nineteen rights known as “powers” which the states delegated to the federal government.  The debt is owed to the federal government for performing the stipulated services and accepting the associated liabilities of the states, which would otherwise have to provide these services.

The parties to this odd agreement are not our actual land jurisdiction states, but corporations they set up to act for them in the international jurisdiction of the sea. These are known as “states of states”, such as the State of Vermont; thus you will see that the “States of America” are mutually and collectively a party to The Constitution for the united States of America, and the word “united” is merely an adjective describing the fact that they are acting in common. 

So the states “united” acting through commercial companies known as “states of states” made an agreement with another entity, whose identity is purposefully obscured: the newly created “United States”.   Unknown to the public then and to most Americans still, this was the United States Trading Company, which was formed from the old British colonial investment companies— the Virginia Company, the New England Company, and others. 

Our fledgling union of states contracted away nineteen of their duties —and the related rights— to a British-owned and operated commercial company.  They could hardly tell the rest of the people that after eight long years of war, they were getting back into bed with the British king and giving up a large portion of all that they had won including control of American commerce, American treaty-making, American trade policy, American defense capability, and much more.

Our states were thus effectively controlled by the British king and emasculated, indeed, castrated in international jurisdiction, even while our country was being born.  By controlling our international defense forces, our foreign policy, our commerce, our currency, and our trade policies, the British king could do exactly what subsequent Monarchs have done—- use and abuse our resources, use our men and boys as gun fodder in wars for profit, use our women as factory and agricultural slaves, devalue our currency, and control our votes in every international assembly. 

From the Founding Fathers’ side of it, their deal probably saved more than half the loaf and forestalled yet another war with England.  The crux of the matter was that the Americans had no Navy to protect shipment of their cotton, tobacco, ore, timber, wheat and other raw materials to Europe and the British stood at the dawn of the Industrial Revolution, starving for those commodities.  Our lack of a navy to protect our commercial shipping and Britain’s lack of raw materials were the driving forces behind the adoption of The Constitution.

It was a gross sacrifice of power, autonomy, and wealth on our part and a liability laced with rich benefits for the British king and the colonial investment groups— which included Americans, like George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Ben Franklin, and others you might know—on the other.

That said, and the motives of the Constitutional Convention fully exposed, the participants did manage to save the entire land jurisdiction and also a very substantial portion of undelegated powers in the international jurisdiction of the sea for future generations. They chained the British king to an extent by setting limits on what we have fallaciously called the “federal government”, and by securing guarantees and obligations, including the obligation of the British Monarch to act as the international trustee of Americans on the High Seas and Navigable Inland Waterways.  

The Constitution was executed by a group of Americans calling themselves “We, the People”.  To grasp what this implies requires us to go back over two hundred years and learn some things we are never taught in school. 

The word “people” means “militia” in Hebrew. 

When Joshua conquered Canaan he led his “people” in battle—-he was leading his “militia”.   Our Forefathers knew this, and so, when they said, “We, the People” they knew that it meant “We, the Militia”—an important point that tends to be lost on us today.

Unlike an army, a militia has civilian officers.  Also unlike an army, membership in a militia is a birthright.  

You are born as a member of a state militia.  

You will also notice that the word “People” in “We, the People” is capitalized.

In contract law, capitalizing a word indicates a position of servitude or inferior political status. 

The men signing the Constitution were functioning as Fiduciary Deputies acting in behalf of their states, and thus were both “people”— that is, members of their respective state militias, and, at the same time, public servants.  That’s why in referring to themselves they used the capital “P” on “People”.  Yes, they were members of the American Militia, but they were acting in a servile capacity while conducting the public’s business.

So what “We, the People” communicates is really quite different from what everyone assumes.  Unless you are claiming to be a member of a state militia serving as a business agent or fiduciary, you really shouldn’t be ramming around using “We, the People” to describe yourselves.

All that said, all the lies and self-interest and double-dealing and double-speak revealed, if we sort ourselves out and assert our proper political status, The Constitution offers us a bulwark against tyranny even today and we would be foolish to cast it aside or undermine it in any way.

Without the Constitution, we would be facing a most ruthless, powerful, and immoral adversary: a desperate rogue international commercial conglomerate which is highly motivated to murder its Priority Creditors—-us, in other words.  

If we give the Federal Government an excuse to kill us by operating outside The Constitution they will profit five different ways:

  1. First, they won’t have to pay us back what they already owe us—-which is many, many trillions of dollars.   
  2. Second, they will collect on million dollar – often multi-million dollar life insurance policies– they’ve placed on each one of us, naming their own precious corporation as the beneficiary.
  3. Third, they will seize and profit from all the “abandoned property” that would result from a Civil War.
  4. Fourth, they will avoid paying the retirement benefits they owe to millions of Baby Boomers.
  5. Fifth, they will charge the survivors for the “service” of killing us.

They’ve been trying for several years to get some kind of conflict going.  They’ve tried race hatred, religious hatred, sovereign citizen phobias and false flags— all without success.  They would like nothing better than to have us start something for them.

The one thing standing in their way is the Constitution.

That is why any reckless talk against the Constitution or actions undermining the Constitution plays into the hands of those who have defrauded and misused us for so long and who in fact owe us so much. 

In my opinion, whatever fault there may be in the Constitution, it is subject to far gentler and more intelligent and certain means of reform than that provided by any sort of insurrection.

The first question then, that each of us must answer is—-do we support and defend the Constitution, and proceed within its established framework to restore a fully functioning American government, or do we, as some have suggested— throw the Constitution out with the bathwater and tread the same bloody road our forefathers were forced to endure for eight long years?

My vote is to support and defend the Constitution, while seeking its full enforcement and eventual reform, but there are voices raised among us who would have us abandon the necessities of obeying The Constitution.  These voices appeal to our egos and our anger.  They preach their own new gospel and they say that the people can do anything they wish to do, change anything they want to change, simply by taking a vote and a show of hands—- even such a sloppy ad hoc show of hands as you can get on a teleconference call.  This, we are told, is sufficient to set new national frameworks in place. 

I must ask of which nation, because it certainly isn’t mine.

No need, they tell us, to build an actual functioning restored government for the organic states.  No need to consider the tens of millions of Americans who have no inkling of what we are discussing, who are not participating, and who have just as much right to know and to take action in the own behalf as we do.  No responsibility to conduct honest elections.  No need to honor anything from the past. No need for Due Process.  No need to respect the requirements of The Constitution.  No need for the Rule of Law.  Everything, they say, is just whatever we say it is. 

No doubt that these same people believe that we have rights without responsibilities, and protections without duties, and can rule without obligation to anything or anyone but ourselves.  They are, mostly without knowing it, preaching anarchy and insurrection and the destruction of the union of states— not restoration and empowerment of the actual counties and states, not the resumption of effective Checks and Balances.

To me, the American Government is like a magnificent V8 engine that is presently running on only two cylinders.  I view it as our job to restore it and get it running right.  It requires us to be good mechanics, know our job, and use the right tools.  And we have inherited all the necessary tools.

Just as it would be foolhardy to try to fix a gas engine without understanding its parts and how it works, we cannot restore our rightful government without understanding its parts and how it works, yet the Pied Pipers among us want us to believe that no such hard work on our parts is required. 

I have the unenviable and unpopular duty of telling everyone that a lot of hard work, soul-searching, and education is necessary, that you can’t just hand-wave your way to a fully functioning American Republic after 150 years of fraud and neglect.  It’s going to take a lot of effort by a lot of people to restore America, and if we don’t do it right, there is the very real danger that our remaining two cylinders will blow up in our faces.

The American Government — as opposed to the US Government — is set in a much larger framework than just the structures and provisions established by The Constitution.  Remember that The Constitution deals only with the set up and running of the United States—- a corporation responsible for providing nineteen delegated services.  Important as that chunk out of our loaf is, it says nothing about our land jurisdiction and says nothing much about our retained non-delegated powers in the international jurisdiction of the sea, beyond the bald statement provided by Article X.

The Constitution tells us how the delegated services are to be provided and organized and monitored and paid for and how the “Federal Government” is to be limited and all that it is obligated to be and do— and says nary a word about our own state and county governments ruling the land jurisdiction, nary a word about the exercise of the non-delegated powers retained in the international jurisdiction of the sea by our union of states.  

Why is that?  It’s because those topics are simply not the subject matter of The Constitution. 

The Constitution is all about our deal with King George and who gets the juicy government services contracts pertaining to that agreement and who controls what aspects of international affairs, what the states are owed, and what they pay in return.

Why, then, would The Constitution talk about our own national state governments operating the land jurisdiction of this country?  Or even about the undelegated powers in international jurisdiction retained by the people and the states under Article X? 

It wouldn’t and it didn’t. 

Generations of Americans have scoured The Constitution looking for answers how to fix our broken government, but that is like reading a book about Barn Building, when what we really need to know is How to Raise Cows.  The subjects are somewhat related, but only obliquely. Instructions for building hay mows and stanchions and waste gutters give information by inference, but don’t directly instruct us in what we need to know.

So in Article IV, The Constitution defines the evils of Bills of Attainder and forbids them, and in Amendment VII makes it clear that the American people are owed Common Law Courts, and in Article X it mentions that the states retained undelegated powers not granted to the new United States government, but doesn’t tell us how to object to Bills of Attainder, or which kind of “Common Law” Americans are owed, or give us a list of the powers that the states and people retained.

So far as the writers of The Constitution were concerned it was assumed and we were expected to know all that for ourselves—but somewhere in the mass confusion, deceit, and fraud of the Civil War and the Reconstruction Acts—- we forgot.  

We forgot who we are, what our states are, what their jurisdiction is, how their powers are exercised, how they are meant to operate, and how to exercise the power of checks and balances.  And it’s the same way with our counties.  We forgot that the counties are the domain of the people and that the counties in turn control the states. 

Instead, the self-interested vermin in DC contrived to turn everything around and upside down, to usurp upon our lawful counties and states and replace them via fraud and deceit with corporate franchises willing to do anything and everything their parent corporations in the District of Columbia demand.  They even contrived to mischaracterize us and our political status, to demean and defraud us by the use and abuse of unilateral and undisclosed contracts to entrap, ensnare, and enclose upon the very people these monsters are hired and paid to protect.

So here we are in 2017, finally dispensing with the fog and corruption and destruction of the Civil War, finally getting rid of the carpetbaggers, and working to see our rightful government restored. 

Let it be noted that the Missing Pieces are all on our side. 

The US Government created by The Constitution is corrupt and arrogant and lawless after 150 years of running wild, but it is still kicking.  It’s the American Government that is MIA. 

It’s the actual American states that no longer answer roll call and act to prevent federal usurpation of their power.  It’s the actual American counties that no longer lawfully assemble and do the job of directing the states.  It’s our government that is on the ropes, firing on only two cylinders—-and it’s because our counties and states have been enfranchised and unlawfully converted by the so-called “federal government” into mere franchises of their own commercial corporations that Checks and Balances no longer work to prevent federal overreach, usurpation, and oppression. 

It is because we have ignorantly allowed ourselves to be called “citizens of the United States” and allowed our political status to be misrepresented and mischaracterized, too, that we are oppressed and abused and presumed upon by these foreign interlopers.

If we are to restore our rightful government and learn to use the power of The Constitution we are owed, we must first restore and hone the American Government— the lawful, unincorporated counties and states of the land jurisdiction, and restore ourselves as the people of our respective fifty nation-states. 

The key is in our hands.  It is up to us to turn it in the lock.

Not having the intellect of someone like Anna, I cannot imagine the amount of reeducation that has to be done in the entire country, before a delegation of learned people can assemble a group of teachers and spread them throughout the America States. Mind you this is for sure step number one because as it stands, there are millions of egotistical empty headed wordsmiths that think they know everything. Keeping these scumbags out of the united assembly of instructors is going to be a bloody mess. But, this must be done to stay on the straight and narrow objective of creating a majority of reeducated Americans. Don’t be insulted folks, but the truth is we have all been dumbed down to kindergarten level concerning the advantages of a Republic over a spastic corporate democracy.

MANY GUN OWNERS POLITICIANS AND MEDIA AGREE

February 28th, 2017 by

http://www.rebelmadman.com/?p=629

By Michael Gaddy

(Author’s note: I originally wrote this article some 7 1/2 years ago, thus the reference to Obama. I have made a few modifications to the original article for clarification purposes and removed broken links. Many states legislatures are still proposing more and more restrictions on our inalienable right to have the necessary tools to defend ourselves and our loved ones. Many times they offer to the uninformed partial rights based on age or the ability to pay for the privilege. For this reason, I believe the tenets of this message to still be most relevant. Our rights are inalienable because they were granted by our creator. Why do we continue to beg and pay government to exercise the rights we already have? 

As a government grows more and more intrusive on individual liberties, that government’s fear of the armed citizen increases exponentially, just as an armed robber fears a well-armed potential victim. Here, in America, in the last seventy plus years, our government and their stooges in the media have sought to relegate the right of a free people to keep and bear arms into a privilege, subject to government approval, rather than an inalienable right. Sadly, many gun owners have agreed to participate in this madness.

I have been consistent in my objections to asking permission and paying for the privilege to carry a weapon on my person, if, and when, I chose to do so. Yet, the majority of objections I receive to my position come from people who currently own guns and have jumped at the opportunity for government approval to do what they already have an inalienable right to do. Is this not an open acknowledgement to those in power the Second Amendment, and the remainder of the Bill of Rights, mean nothing and are subject to the whim of some elected criminal, bureaucrat, or an agenda wearing a black robe?

When I decided to write this article, I did not contact the government, submit to a background check, submit fingerprints, take a government endorsed writing class and pay for permission. What is the difference in the exercise of my inalienable right to free speech and my inalienable right to keep and bear arms? The difference is: the state currently fears my ability to resist tyranny with a firearm more than with words, but as we can see from the reaction of the government and its media lackeys to the spoken objections to the tyranny of socialized medicine, that is about to change.

In today’s political climate, if one dares to speak out about the intrusion of the state into every crevice of liberty and freedom, they are compared by the socialist mouth organ to Nazis, Hamas, ISIS and Hezbollah.

If the First Amendment rights follow the pattern of the Second Amendment, only those who have been vetted by the state will be allowed to speak or write publicly, and then only after passing the prerequisite courses, state scrutiny, and of course, pay the required amount for the privilege.

I can see the stooges proudly proclaiming their newly paid-for right to speak and write, just as they do now with their permits to carry a concealed weapon. Then, many will lobby for reciprocity from other states the right to speak or publish, or perhaps even campaign for a national permit to exercise their First Amendment rights.

An American, exercising his inalienable right to keep and bear arms, recently (2009) became the focus of the state and the media in New Hampshire near where Obama was to appear. Chris Matthews and other members of the propaganda ministry were apoplectic. How dare anyone other than a government bottom feeder be allowed near the Messiah with a firearm? What would have happened had this man decided to exercise his First Amendment rights at the same time he was exercising his Second?

What did the state and the media fear most about this man with a gun? Was it the man, the gun, the spirit of the man, or perhaps it might have been his ethnicity? After all, according to the media, if he were there to object to the socialist plans of Obama that would reveal his latent racism. We all know, white people concerned about government taking over their health care want to shoot anyone who is only half white.

What a masterstroke it was for the government to get Ignoramus Americanus to admit the only rights he has are those subject to the “reasonable” restrictions of his masters and his/her ability to pay the required fee. The precedent has been set and we have agreed; you must submit yourself before the god called government, pass their background checks, take their approved qualification course, submit the required monies and wait for your ID card certifying you have permission from the state to exercise at least one of your former inalienable rights!

If you, and/or a member of your family, are assaulted by a madman with a weapon while in a restaurant, on a school campus, in church, at the mall, in a bank, in the parking lot where you shop or work, in a carjacking or a mugging, or visiting Obama’s home town, you must remember, the only people allowed to defend their lives and those of their loved ones are those who have been sanctioned by the state to do so. That is freedom in America today, granted by the government, bought and paid for.

Through our inactions and apathy we have acknowledged the state to be the masters of our lives; perhaps we can apply for the privilege of having our own health care, the right not to be forcibly injected by some vaccine whose side effects are worse than the disease or the right not to be imprisoned in a FEMA camp. Remember, we traded our rights for security. It is turning out to be one heck of a bad bargain.

Resistance, anyone?

IN RIGHTFUL REBEL LIBERTY

Olddogs Comments!

LET’S FACE THE FACTS FOLKS! The truth is, according to the corporate government, we are not protected by any rights period. I will let Anna von Reitz say it better than I can.

 You are “gifted” with the PERSON, for example, JOHN MICHAEL DOE, to enable you to operate in commerce and thereby become subjected to federal regulation and federal taxation.  Oh, jolly!  We all wanted that, right?  We were just never told anything about it and forced into it when we were still babes in our cradles and didn’t have a clue what was going on.  Our Mothers were never told, either, so they couldn’t tell us.

 Our identities and our property were stolen literally “like candy from a baby” and the bastards got away with misrepresenting our political status, too.

 That’s how little John Michael Doe became a ward of the UNITED STATES and became identified as a US CITIZEN operating the commercial “vessel” JOHN MICHAEL DOE.

 That’s how we were press ganged and enslaved by the Queen of England and the Roman Pontiff, even though they are both supposed to be acting as our International Trustees.

Really folks, you simply must read and understand that we are (according to the corporation we think is an elected government) nothing but an instrument. They have used every kind of non applicable laws to design a secret system of artificial debts to replace living soul people. Yes, it is complicated, but you either study and learn what you are in the corporation’s eyes or you remain a slave to their system of repulsive laws. There is no way to regain your status as a living soul that is protected by the original Constitution for the United States until you understand the process and file the forms. And even then the ignorant people who rely on the corporation for their livelihood will constantly harass you. BUT, with study you can sidestep their illegal authority. The bottom line is we do not have any GOD given rights in the eyes of the corporate government. So yes, you are a slave!!!  You can remain a slave to this unspeakable travesty, or you can become a free human soul as God intended. Your choice! For those with courage start here.

Here are some real facts you are unaware of.

 The United States is still under the authority of the Queen Of England and the Pope.

 We are not recognized as human beings, but fictional corporate documents that are traded for profit.

GUN CONTROL

Four Agencies to Abolish along with the Dept of Education

February 24th, 2017 by

https://mises.org/blog/four-agencies-abolish-along-dept-education

by Ryan McMaken

In the wake of the Senate’s confirmation of the appointment of Betsy DeVos, the protests from the left prompted Republican Congressman Thomas Massie to offer them a way to get rid of DeVos: eliminate the Department of Education

According to Massie, he’d been planning to introduce the bill for more than a year, and the controversy over DeVos appeared to be as good a time as any. 

There’s no harm in Massie introducing the bill, of course, although as I’ve noted here, the odds of Republicans offering much help to Massie in passing the bill are pretty low. 

But as long as we’re identifying cabinet-level agencies for the chopping block, why stop with the Department of Education

There are plenty of other Departments which oversee activities that could easily be done by state and local agencies, or which should just be reduced to their former less-exalted positions in the federal ecosystem. 

For starters, we’ll just address some of the low-hanging fruit. Here are agencies that can be eliminated with relative ease, either because they are recently-created, redundant, or utterly unnecessary. 

One: The Department of Homeland Security, $51 Billion

Somehow, the United States managed to get along for more than 225 years before this Department was created by Congress and the Bush Administration in 2002. 

The Department Quickly became a way for the federal government to spread federal taxpayer dollars to state and local law enforcement agencies, thus gaining greater control at the local level. The DHS administers a number of grant programs that have helped to purchase a variety of new toys for law enforcement groups including new weapons, and new technologies. Also included in this is the infamous military surplus program which is supplies tanks and other military equipment to police forces everywhere from big cities to small rural towns. The crime-free town of Keene, New Hampshire made sure its police received a tank through this program as have many larger cities. 

When the Orlando gunman opened fire in the Pulse nightclub in 2016, the police eventually rolled up in a tank — which did nothing to stem the bloodshed inside the club. 

Police claim they need these half-million-dollar vehicles from the DHS to deal with civil unrest. Never mind, of course, that every state already has a National Guard force specifically for that purpose. 

While the Department was created in response to the 9/11 attacks, the Department does nothing to address anything like a 9/11-style attack, and all the agencies that were supposed to provide intelligence on such attacks — the FBI for instance — already exist in other departments and continue to enjoy huge budgets. 

DHS also includes agencies that already existed in other departments before, such as the Federal Emergency Management Agency, and the agencies that handle immigration and customs. Those agencies should either be returned to the departments they came from or be abolished. 

And, few would miss the Transportation Security Administration — an agency that has never caught a single terrorist, but has smuggled at least $100 million worth of cocaine. 

Two: The EPA, $8.3 billion. 

It seems at least one member of Congress already beat me to this one, and a bill to “terminate the Environmental Protection Agency” was introduced on February 3. 

Created under Nixon in 1970, this agency largely exists today to push around small-time business owners, entrepreneurs, and mom-and-pop organizations that run afoul or some obscure federal regulation. More recently, The EPA dumped three million gallons of toxic sludge into a Colorado river, poisoning the Navajo Nation’s watershed. Meanwhile, the agency is suing a city in Colorado because the city’s storm drains aren’t exactly right.  

Local property owners and local governments already have a large incentive to avoid the destruction of rivers and air used by local communities. In the modern era of nature-based recreation, destroying a mountain river — as the EPA has done — is an easy way to destroy the local economy. 

Moreover, most of the environmental cleanup we attribute to federal regulation today was simply the result of growing wealth in the US. As Americans became wealthier, they began to value clean air and water more than the jobs associated with the “dirty” industries. Does anyone seriously believe that the Cuyahoga River would start catching on fire again without an EPA? It’s not going to happen.

Three: Department of the Interior, $14 billion

The most notorious agency within the Department of the Interior is the Bureau of Indian affairs. The BIA controls 55 million acres of land which is — to use the darkly euphemistic term employed by the Feds — “held in trust” by the US government. That means the Indian tribes can’t control their own land unless a bureaucrat at the Department of the Interior says so. 

Given that the tribes should be totally independent of federal regulation, the BIA should be abolished immediately. Any relations between the tribes and US government should be handled by the State Department, which is the appropriate place to deal with organizations that are supposed to be governed primarily by treaties with the United States. 

The other main purpose of the Interior is the control of immense amounts of “public lands” including national parks. The Department is unnecessary here as well, given that public land should be administered by the communities that are economically dependent on those lands. Moreover, whether we like the idea of public lands or not, the chances of public lands being privatized — if made into state lands — is approximately zero. State parks, national forests, and national parks are very popular with voters and moving them from federal control to state control won’t change this.[1]  

Four: The Department of Agriculture, $153 billion

This is the most expensive of the Departments funded here — primarily because the USDA oversees the Food Stamp program — now known as SNAP — which costs more than $70 billion. The reason the SNAP program is in the USDA is that SNAP has always largely been a subsidy program for farmers. One of its original selling points was that it would get people to buy more food. SNAP could be rolled into the Department of Health and Human Services this afternoon, and virtually no one would notice or care. the USDA bureaucracy simply adds more cost. 

That wouldn’t do anything to eliminate that $70 billion food stamp spending, of course. But it would make it much easier, politically speaking, to get rid of the remaining 80 billion of the USDA’s budget. 

The rest of the USDA is composed of pork projects for farmers, researchers, and other corporate interests that continually receive the taxpayer’s largesse. 

The USDA also administers its own affordable housing programs, even though several major programs for affordable housing already exist in the Department of Housing and Urban Development.  

The Problem with Cabinet Level Agencies 

A lot of what we’ve discussed here falls short of totally abolishing the government spending associated with these Departments. These are all extremely mild reforms and mere baby steps toward a more human-sized federal government. 

But ending cabinet level status for many of these agencies is a crucial first step in cutting these agencies down to size. It is likely not a coincidence that no cabinet-level agency, with the exception of the Postal Service, has ever lost its cabinet-level status, and certainly none have ever been abolished. 

When a government agency is lifted to the cabinet level, it gains political prestige, permanence, and direct access to the President. In other words, it makes that agency more easily able to lobby Congress, the White house, and to fight budget cuts. The fact that abolishing the Department of Education — without even abolishing all its programs — is now seen as some sort of wildly radical position — illustrates the power of the cabinet-level agency.

ONLY FOOLS TRUST GOVERNMENT ACADEMIA AND THE MEDIA

GOVERNMENTBy Ron Ewart
February 22, 2017
NewsWithViews.com

The crack of FBI sharpshooter Lon Horiuchi’s sniper rifle echoed across the forest as it tore through Kevin Harris and then passed through Vicki Weaver’s head, as Kevin dove through the door of the Idaho cabin in August of 1992. The FBI sniper had already wounded Randy Weaver. Vicki was cradling her infant daughter in one hand and holding the door in the other. Her older daughter was standing next to Vicki and as the bullet ripped through Vicki’s brain, pieces of her hair, scalp, skull, skin and blood splattered the older daughter standing next to her.

Because of an earlier event where a U. S. Marshal was killed by Randy Weaver’s 14-year old son, and the son was killed by the other U. S. Marshals, an FBI “kill order” went out to all FBI agents that had descended on the scene. The Weavers were to be killed on sight. The wholly preventable tragic episode lasted 11 days. Retired Lieutenant Colonel Bo Gritz was successful in negotiating an end to the standoff. The event stemmed from Randy Weaver trying to sell two sawed off shotguns to an ATF informant and then not showing up for his court hearing, leading to U. S. Marshals showing up at the cabin.

Rumors that the FBI had engaged in a cover-up regarding the Ruby Ridge operation were verified when E. Michael Kahoe, former chief of the FBI’s violent crimes section, pleaded guilty to obstruction of justice in 1996. Kahoe, who had destroyed an official bureau critique of the standoff, was sentenced to 18 months in prison. Weaver and Harris won a $3.1 Million dollar settlement from the government.

The well-known government siege that occurred at the Branch Davidian compound in Waco, Texas between February 28th and April 19th in 1993 was a similar event of out-of-control government power. It resulted in the death of 76 people, including young children living in the compound, burned to death by the ensuing fire. The memory of that event is burned into the minds of conservatives all over America.

Also burned into the memory of millions of Americans, especially Japanese Americans, was FDR’s February 19, 1942 Executive Order 9066, which interned (jailed) upwards of 120,000 Americans of Japanese ancestry in military camps on the West Coast. The government used the military to round up these Americans and don’t think for one minute the government wouldn’t do it again. Now do you still trust government?

Never forget that government is force and it is power. Thomas Jefferson warned us that: “Experience hath shewn, that even under the best forms of government, those entrusted with power have, in time, and by slow operations, perverted it into tyranny.” Has the U. S. Government become tyrannical? You decide.

But this government over-reach and abuse of power doesn’t stop there. In a much more recent case, FBI agents and Oregon County Sheriffs and State Patrol Troopers staged an ambush on a desolate, snowy stretch of Oregon highway to apprehend Ammon Bundy and the others that occupied the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge to protest the incarceration of ranchers Dwight and Steven Hammond. The ambush led to the assassination by the officers of Lavoy Finicum, one of the occupiers of the wildlife refuge. A jury would later acquit the surviving occupiers, to the dismay and disappointment of the government prosecutors.

We wrote about the event in a recent article: “Over the last several decades, small, local skirmishes, sometimes violent, started erupting in different parts of the West, in response to the government and environmental land grab, which led to the Sagebrush Rebellion in the 1970’s. The skirmishes started to grow in size, which culminated in the Bundy Ranch standoff in 2014 at Bunkerville, NV between 200 heavily armed BLM agents and several hundred private citizens carrying guns. A shooting war where private citizens would start dying in the desert for all to see at the hands of federal agents, wouldn’t play well with public opinion. The event was widely covered by the news media and the government wisely stood down.”

As Americans push back against rising government abuse, harassment, interference and growing regulations, government responds with overwhelming force, totally out of proportion to the event, in an overt act of tyranny, as they did in Ruby Ridge, Idaho; Waco, Texas; Bunkerville, Nevada and Burns, Oregon.

But it’s not just government that Americans can’t trust. The lack of trust also extends to the news media and even academia. Both lie extensively, distort events to fit their agenda and infuse events and even science with a rabid Progressive mindset, man-caused global warming being a glaring example.

A few days ago the Associated Press reported a bogus story that the President was going to use the National Guard to round up illegal aliens and deport them, whether criminals or not. The story was an outright fabrication, in other words, fake news.

In a recent article by Thomas Friedman in the New York Times, he wrote: “Ladies and gentlemen, we were attacked on Dec. 7, 1941, we were attacked on Sept. 11, 2001, and we were attacked on Nov. 8, 2016. That most recent attack didn’t involve a horrible loss of lives, but it was devastating in its own way.”

Devastating Mr. Friedman? How? Devastating to Progressives maybe. Friedman purposely fails to recognize and attacks the 63,000,000 Americans in the 30 states that voted for Donald Trump in the 2016 presidential election. They voted for a candidate that was going to shake up the status quo and rattle the timbers of the establishment elite. They voted for Trump because they had grown tired and angry over decades of failed Progressive policies. Trump, as flawed as he may be, was and is the flag bearer of that shake up and Friedman, the New York Times, academia and the rest of the national Progressive crowd are crying like a hungry baby with a dirty diaper because they didn’t get their way.

How can you trust columnists, reporters and news outlets that purposely distort the news, make up the news ….. or lie?

But let’s not forget those liberal colleges that pretend to teach your college-age children. These liberal professors are so brainwashed into thinking that liberalism and Progressivism are sacrosanct, they do everything in their power to silence any other avenue of thought. No, not every college professor is a rabid liberal carrier of the Progressive disease, but unfortunately, most of them are. We’ve selected a few quotes from college professors that illustrate the institutionalized liberal and often radical bias that exists in almost every college in America.

“Simply put: Thanksgiving is the day when the dominant white culture (and, sadly, most of the rest of the non-white but non-indigenous population) celebrates the beginning of a genocide that was, in fact, blessed by the men we hold up as our heroic founding fathers. …How does a country deal with the fact that some of its most revered historical figures had certain moral values and political views virtually identical to Nazis?” — Robert Jensen, University of Texas at Austin

“On September 11, 2001, nineteen Arab hijackers too demonstrated their willingness to die — and to kill — for their dream. They died so that their people might live, free and in dignity.” — Shahid Alam, Northeastern University

“I live to harass white folks.” — Derrick Bell, Harvard

“The blood is on the hands of the NRA. Next time, let it be YOUR sons and daughters. Shame on you. May God d*mn you.” — David Guth, University of Kansas

“Real freedom will come when [U.S.] soldiers in Iraq turn their guns on their superiors.” — John Daly, Warren County Community College

“The only true heroes are those who find ways that help defeat the U.S. military…I personally would like to see a million Mogadishus.” — Nicholas De Genova, Columbia University

“Kill all the rich people. Break up their cars and apartments. Bring the revolution home, Kill your parents.” — Bill Ayers, University of Illinois at Chicago

“As to those in the World Trade Center…Let’s get a grip here, shall we? True enough, they were civilians of a sort. But innocent? Gimme a break. …If there was a better, more effective, or in fact any other way of visiting some penalty befitting their participation upon the little Eichmanns inhabiting the sterile sanctuary of the twin towers, I’d really be interested in hearing about it.” — Ward Churchill, University of Colorado at Boulder

The foregoing is just a sample of what liberal professors actually think. We found many more comments just as egregious.

But our educational institutions don’t begin and end with liberal indoctrination in America’s colleges. It goes all the way back to Kindergarten and through 12th grade public education that has now been infected with Common Core State Standards (CCSS). We described CCSS in our August 7, 2013 article entitled: Common Core Standards – Suspicions Confirmed.” Common Core State Standards are riddled with United Nations internationally defined social justice and radical environmentalism. One of the standards includes this all-illuminating phrase: “CCSS must respond to equity as a meaningful process to address the social justice issues of race, language, gender and class bias.” This statement was in a math class directive. A math class!?

The other words and phrases that caught our eye in CCSS were “social interactionist theories”, “social and cultural theories”, “social contexts” and “equity.” The words “social” and “equity” are recurrent themes in everything we read about Common Core State Standards. These words come right out of United Nations socialist policies, parroted by liberals and you won’t find them in the U. S. Constitution.

Social justice and social equity have now become more important and have greater priority in the public school curriculum than Reading, ‘Riting and ‘Rithmetic.

The point of all this discussion is, how can you trust the utterances of academia, or even teachers in K-12, when a huge majority of the professors and teachers are steeped in only one ideological, philosophical and political point of view that vehemently rejects any other point of view?

How can you trust government when it abuses its power so readily, so often and with deadly force against its own citizens? How can you trust the news media when it creates false news and outright lies to their viewing, reading and listening audiences?

If the people cannot trust their government, or the news media, or academia, or public education, then these entities have become the enemy of the people and must be resisted by any and all means.

Finally, there is a president who will bring that resistance to the front doors of these entities in open and notorious defiance. If he succeeds, that could be the turning point that conservatives have been waiting and praying for, ever since the days of President Woodrow Wilson and the 16th Amendment.

Sadly, ladies and gentlemen, after over 100 years, Progressivism is so embedded in our institutions and the mindset of the people, it may be that only a revolution will break the strangle hold it has on our culture, our economics and our freedom. At this time, there simply is no organized and well-financed resistance to unravel Progressivism and like all Republics before us, the people will wait until it is too late to mount an effective challenge. All the words and utterances in all the conservative venues won’t change anything. In contrast, The Other Side is well organized and well funded. Hopefully, some day, the people will come to realize that Progressivism is as much a danger to freedom as the atomic bomb is a danger to the entire human race.

OPINIONSBy Michael Gaddy

When James Madison left New York for Philadelphia on May 2nd, 1787 he carried with him not the proposed amendments to the Articles of Confederation which was the mandate of the convention but an entirely new idea for a constitution that would make the “National” government supreme with the states nothing but subdivisions of the central government structure. His proposal would grant the national government veto power over all state laws. Madison’s plan was totally contrary to the results of the recent war with England which gave primary power to the states with the central government only allowed the powers the states saw fit to provide. Madison’s plan called for a consolidated union that would virtually annihilate the states. The states would only be maintained as long as they could be “subordinately useful.”

In opposition to this proposed form of government, New York delegate John Lansing would most astutely observe that the states would never have consented to select delegates to attend a convention that would lead to their destruction.

So, why is this of any importance? Simply because the Nationalist form of government which would allow a strong central government to act directly on the people, ironically what our government of today has become, was completely rejected by the delegates to the Constitutional Convention of 1787.

Unfortunately for Liberty, the form of government rejected at the convention is now seen as supreme by the overwhelming majority of people in office; people running for office; all judges regardless of position in government; all of the bureaucrats and a huge majority of people in this country.

So-called “conservative” elected officials have been heard to state “no law is unconstitutional until the Supreme Court says it is.” A “conservative” candidate for US Senate was recently heard to remark that whatever the US Supreme Court rules must be considered as gospel. This is a complete repudiation of the rights of states to determine what is best for their own citizens and therefore a repudiation of the principles of Jefferson and an advocacy of the principles found in Hitler’s Mein Kampf which revolved around destruction of the individual states.

On the subject of the Supreme Court being the final arbiter of what is and what is not constitutional, Jefferson stated the following:

“…(T)he opinion which gives to the judges the right to decide what laws are constitutional and what not, not only for themselves in their own sphere of action but for the Legislature and Executive also in their spheres, would make the Judiciary a despotic branch.”

Giving the Supreme Court the power to judge what is and what is not constitutional, not only the federal level but also on the state level, destroys the very intent of the 9th and 10th Amendments. In other words, the Supreme Court Justices and other lesser federal judges have set about to amend our Constitution by judicial fiat.

On this subject George Mason would state the following at the Virginia State Ratifying Convention:

“If the laws and constitution of the general government, as expressly said, be paramount to those of any state, are not those rights with which we were afraid to trust our own citizens annulled and given up to the general government? . . . If they are not given up, where are they secured?

I do not believe the subject can be any clearer that when the “national” government supersedes those of the states, Liberty soon becomes first endangered and finally extinct.

So, how is this connected to Adolf Hitler you ask? The answer can be found on page 572 of Hitler’s magnum opus, Mein Kampf.  While lamenting that Bismarck had not gone far enough in destroying state’s rights in Germany, Hitler said:

“And so today this state, for the sake of its own existence, is obliged to curtail the sovereign rights of the individual provinces more and more, not only out of general material considerations but from ideal considerations as well…basic for us National Socialists is derived: A powerful national Reich . . .”

Are you beginning to see a pattern here? James Madison, Alexander Hamilton, John Jay and the other nationalists among our founders believed that to have an omnipotent central government, the power of the individual states must be eliminated. Accomplishing this would lead to the destruction of the Declaration of Independence concept of “consent of the governed,” a concept vital to the existence of Liberty and Natural Rights.

Abraham Lincoln initiated a war to destroy the concepts of State’s Rights and consent of the governed, killing over 800,000 Americans and replacing the government based on consent with a strong central government ruled by a cabal unrestrained with the limits of a constitution.

Lincoln was praised by Karl Marx for his accomplishments and Adolf Hitler used Lincoln’s premise for an omnipotent central government to establish his National Socialist empire that led to the deaths of millions; some in furnaces and by firing squad to millions more on the battlefields of WWII.

The candidates, politicians and all members of the species Ignoramus Americanus who claim that decrees of the Supreme Court are infallible and constitute immutable law adhere to the beliefs of some of the most evil, murderous tyrants in history and should be treated as the enemies to Liberty that they are.

Contrast please the diametrically opposed concepts of Adolf Hitler and Thomas Jefferson.

“National Socialism as a matter of principle, must lay claim to the right to force its principles on the whole German nation without consideration of previous federated state boundaries, and to educate in its ideas and conceptions. Just as the churches do not feel bound and limited by political boundaries, no more does the National Socialist idea feel limited by the individual state territories of our fatherland. The National Socialist doctrine is not the servant of individual federated states, but shall some day become the master of the German nation. It must determine and reorder the life of a people, and must, therefore, imperiously claim the right to pass over [state] boundaries drawn by a development we have rejected.” ~Adolph Hitler, Mein Kampf, p. 578

“That the several States composing, the United States of America, are not united on the principle of unlimited submission to their general government; but that, by a compact under the style and title of a Constitution for the United States, and of amendments thereto, they constituted a general government for special purposes—delegated to that government certain definite powers, reserving, each State to itself, the residuary mass of right to their own self-government; and that whensoever the general government assumes undelegated powers, its acts are unauthoritative, void, and of no force: that to this compact each State acceded as a State, and is an integral part, its co-States forming, as to itself, the other party: that the government created by this compact was not made the exclusive or final judge of the extent of the powers delegated to itself; since that would have made its discretion, and not the Constitution, the measure of its powers; but that, as in all other cases of compact among powers having no common judge, each party has an equal right to judge for itself, as well of infractions as of the mode and measure of redress.” ~Thomas Jefferson, Kentucky Resolution, 10 November 1798

As you read the two above quotes you must ask yourself: “Which of the two most closely resembles the government we h

Who do you choose; Jefferson or Hitler?

I would like to add my two cents to this great article, and that is how utterly stupid, traitorous lovers of democracy are! How can anyone be so stupid to not see the damage caused by practicing democracy in a country where every idiot believes their opinions are sacred rights? When has anyone witnessed an army win a war where every John Dick and Harry in uniform had an equal right to enforce his action plan? History is nothing more than absolute proof that strong absolute leadership must be enforced to win wars, but it is just the opposite in the administration of Nations, where men of high intellect band together in solidarity to manage the economy, and hundreds of other important decisions, ALL UNDER THE GUIDE LINES IN THE CONSTITUTION. Give me a Republic, or give me death! Those of you reading this that firmly believe your OPINION must be law need to tie a rope around a tree and the other end around you worthless neck and jump off the cliff. Your type of scumbags is the reason Christianity has no solidarity. Every Preacher now believes he is the only one preaching truth. Every Church you go to preaches a different philosophy, because the preachers are theologically ignorant. Such is the power of divisive multiculturalism.

If our God given RIGHTS to life, liberty, freedom and Pursuit of happiness, which were the foundation upon which this nation was created do not exist, and liberty and freedom is only an illusion under which the American’s,  suffer then let the government of this nation come forward and tell the people. But…..if we are judged free, then we should not have to plead or beg before our elected public servants to be treated as such. If, in truth we are not free, then perhaps it is our duty to address this issue forthright and forthwith with the power of the pen and pray the people will waken from their fear and slumber induced by greed. “From the Redemption Manual”

CHAOSBy John W. Whitehead
February 13, 2017

“Our current and past strategies can no longer hold. We are facing environments that the masters of war never foresaw. We are facing a threat that requires us to redefine doctrine and the force in radically new and different ways. The future army will confront a highly sophisticated urban-centric threat that will require that urban operations become the core requirement for the future land-force. The threat is clear. Our direction remains to be defined. The future is urban.”— “Megacities: Urban Future, the Emerging Complexity,” a Pentagon training video created by the Army for U.S. Special Operations Command

The U.S. military plans to take over America by 2030.

No, this is not another conspiracy theory. Although it easily could be.

Nor is it a Hollywood political thriller in the vein of John Frankenheimer’s 1964 political thriller Seven Days in May about a military coup d’etat.

Although it certainly has all the makings of a good thriller.

No, this is the real deal, coming at us straight from the horse’s mouth.

According to “Megacities: Urban Future, the Emerging Complexity,” a Pentagon training video created by the Army for U.S. Special Operations Command, the U.S. military plans to use armed forces to solve future domestic political and social problems.

What they’re really talking about is martial law, packaged as a well-meaning and overriding concern for the nation’s security.

The chilling five-minute training video, obtained by The Intercept through a FOIA request and made available online, paints an ominous picture of the future—a future the military is preparing for—bedeviled by “criminal networks,” “substandard infrastructure,” “religious and ethnic tensions,” “impoverishment, slums,” “open landfills, over-burdened sewers,” a “growing mass of unemployed,” and an urban landscape in which the prosperous economic elite must be protected from the impoverishment of the have nots.

And then comes the kicker.

Three-and-a-half minutes into the Pentagon’s dystopian vision of “a world of Robert Kaplan-esque urban hellscapes — brutal and anarchic supercities filled with gangs of youth-gone-wild, a restive underclass, criminal syndicates, and bands of malicious hackers,” the ominous voice of the narrator speaks of a need to “drain the swamps.”

Drain the swamps.

Surely, we’ve heard that phrase before?

Ah yes.

Emblazoned on t-shirts and signs, shouted at rallies, and used as a rallying cry among Trump supporters, “drain the swamp” became one of Donald Trump’s most-used campaign slogans, along with “build the wall” and “lock her up.”

Funny how quickly the tides can shift and the tables can turn.

Whereas Trump promised to drain the politically corrupt swamps of Washington DC of lobbyists and special interest groups, the U.S. military is plotting to drain the swamps of futuristic urban American cities of “noncombatants and engage the remaining adversaries in high intensity conflict within.”

And who are these noncombatants, a military term that refers to civilians who are not engaged in fighting?

They are, according to the Pentagon, “adversaries.”

They are “threats.”

They are the “enemy.”

They are people who don’t support the government, people who live in fast-growing urban communities, people who may be less well-off economically than the government and corporate elite, people who engage in protests, people who are unemployed, people who engage in crime (in keeping with the government’s fast-growing, overly broad definition of what constitutes a crime).

In other words, in the eyes of the U.S. military, noncombatants are American citizens a.k.a. domestic extremists a.k.a. enemy combatants who must be identified, targeted, detained, contained and, if necessary, eliminated.

Welcome to Battlefield America.

In the future imagined by the Pentagon, any walls and prisons that are built will be used to protect the societal elite—the haves—from the have-nots.

We are the have-nots.

Suddenly it all begins to make sense.

The events of recent years: the invasive surveillance, the extremism reports, the civil unrest, the protests, the shootings, the bombings, the military exercises and active shooter drills, the color-coded alerts and threat assessments, the fusion centers, the transformation of local police into extensions of the military, the distribution of military equipment and weapons to local police forces, the government databases containing the names of dissidents and potential troublemakers.

This is how you prepare a populace to accept a police state willingly, even gratefully.

You don’t scare them by making dramatic changes. Rather, you acclimate them slowly to their prison walls. Persuade the citizenry that their prison walls are merely intended to keep them safe and danger out.

Desensitize them to violence, acclimate them to a military presence in their communities and persuade them that there is nothing they can do to alter the seemingly hopeless trajectory of the nation.

Before long, no one will even notice the floundering economy, the blowback arising from military occupations abroad, the police shootings, the nation’s deteriorating infrastructure and all of the other mounting concerns.

It’s happening already.

The sight of police clad in body armor and gas masks, wielding semiautomatic rifles and escorting an armored vehicle through a crowded street, a scene likened to “a military patrol through a hostile city,” no longer causes alarm among the general populace.

Few seem to care about the government’s endless wars abroad that leave communities shattered, families devastated and our national security at greater risk of blowback. Indeed, there were no protests in the streets after U.S. military forces raided a compound in Yemen, killing “at least eight women and seven children, ages 3 to 13.”

Their tactics are working.

We’ve allowed ourselves to be acclimated to the occasional lockdown of government buildings, Jade Helm military drills in small towns so that special operations forces can get “realistic military training” in “hostile” territory, and  Live Active Shooter Drill training exercises, carried out at schools, in shopping malls, and on public transit, which can and do fool law enforcement officials, students, teachers and bystanders into thinking it’s a real crisis.

Still, you can’t say we weren’t warned.

Back in 2008, an Army War College report revealed that “widespread civil violence inside the United States would force the defense establishment to reorient priorities in extremis to defend basic domestic order and human security.” The 44-page report went on to warn that potential causes for such civil unrest could include another terrorist attack, “unforeseen economic collapse, loss of functioning political and legal order, purposeful domestic resistance or insurgency, pervasive public health emergencies, and catastrophic natural and human disasters.”

In 2009, reports by the Department of Homeland Security surfaced that labelled right-wing and left-wing activists and military veterans as extremists (a.k.a. terrorists) and called on the government to subject such targeted individuals to full-fledged pre-crime surveillance. Almost a decade later, after spending billions to fight terrorism, the DHS concluded that the greater threat is not ISIS but domestic right-wing extremism.

Meanwhile, the government has been amassing an arsenal of military weapons for use domestically and equipping and training their “troops” for war. Even government agencies with largely administrative functions such as the Food and Drug Administration, Department of Veterans Affairs, and the Smithsonian have been acquiring body armor, riot helmets and shields, cannon launchers and police firearms and ammunition. In fact, there are now at least 120,000 armed federal agents carrying such weapons who possess the power to arrest.

Rounding out this profit-driven campaign to turn American citizens into enemy combatants (and America into a battlefield) is a technology sector that has been colluding with the government to create a Big Brother that is all-knowing, all-seeing and inescapable. It’s not just the drones, fusion centers, license plate readers, stingray devices and the NSA that you have to worry about. You’re also being tracked by the black boxes in your cars, your cell phone, smart devices in your home, grocery loyalty cards, social media accounts, credit cards, streaming services such as Netflix, Amazon, and e-book reader accounts.

All of this has taken place right under our noses, funded with our taxpayer dollars and carried out in broad daylight without so much as a general outcry from the citizenry.

It’s astounding how convenient we’ve made it for the government to lock down the nation.

So what exactly is the government preparing for?

Mind you, by “government,” I’m not referring to the highly partisan, two-party bureaucracy of the Republicans and Democrats.

I’m referring to “government” with a capital “G,” the entrenched Deep State that is unaffected by elections, unaltered by populist movements, and has set itself beyond the reach of the law.

I’m referring to the corporatized, militarized, entrenched bureaucracy that is fully operational and staffed by unelected officials who are, in essence, running the country and calling the shots in Washington DC, no matter who sits in the White House.

This is the hidden face of a government that has no respect for the freedom of its citizenry.

What is the government preparing for? You tell me.

Better yet, take a look at the Pentagon’s training video.

It’s only five minutes long, but it says a lot about the government’s mindset, the way its views the citizenry, and the so-called “problems” that the military must be prepared to address in the near future. Even more troubling, however, is what this military video doesn’t say about the Constitution, about the rights of the citizenry, and about the dangers of using the military to address political and social problems.

The future is here.

We’re already witnessing a breakdown of society on virtually every front.

By waging endless wars abroad, by bringing the instruments of war home, by transforming police into extensions of the military, by turning a free society into a suspect society, by treating American citizens like enemy combatants, by discouraging and criminalizing a free exchange of ideas, by making violence its calling card through SWAT team raids and militarized police, by fomenting division and strife among the citizenry, by acclimating the citizenry to the sights and sounds of war, and by generally making peaceful revolution all but impossible, the government has engineered an environment in which domestic violence has become almost inevitable.

Be warned: in the future envisioned by the military, we will not be viewed as Republicans or Democrats. Rather, “we the people” will be enemies of the state.

As I make clear in my book, Battlefield America: The War on the American People, we’re already enemies of the state.

For years, the government has been warning against the dangers of domestic terrorism, erecting surveillance systems to monitor its own citizens, creating classification systems to label any viewpoints that challenge the status quo as extremist, and training law enforcement agencies to equate anyone possessing anti-government views as a domestic terrorist. What the government failed to explain was that the domestic terrorists would be of the government’s own making, whether intentional or not.

“We the people” have become enemy #1.
