Generation Snowflake: Percentage Of Young Adults Living With Their Parents Hasn’t Been This High Since 1940

 By Michael Snyder

Have we failed this generation of young adults by not equipping them to be able to handle the harsh realities of the real world?  According to the Wall Street Journal, the percentage of Americans in the 18 to 34-year-old age bracket that are currently living with their parents hasn’t been this high in 75 years.  At this point nearly 40 percent of our young adults in that age range are living at home, and many are concerned that this could have some alarming implications for the future of our nation.

In the United States today, more than 60 million people live in multi-generational households, and it is a good thing to have a tight family.  But at some point young adults need to learn how to live their own independent lives, and in millions of cases this independence is being delayed or is never happening at all.

There are many factors involved in this trend.  First of all, there is truly a lack of good jobs despite what we are being told about an “economic recovery”.  Millions of young adults are graduating from college only to discover that there is a very limited number of good jobs available for our college graduates.  So some college graduates are able to secure the types of jobs that they were hoping for, but millions of others are not.

Normally when a recession ends, the percentage of young adults living with their parents starts to go back down.  But this has not happened this time around.  Instead, the percentage of young adults that live at home has just continued to rise

The trend runs counter to that of previous economic cycles, when after a recession-related spike, the number of younger Americans living with relatives declined as the economy improved.

The result is that there is far less demand for housing than would be expected for the millennial generation, now the largest in U.S. history. The number of adults under age 30 has increased by 5 million over the last decade, but the number of households for that age group grew by just 200,000 over the same period, according to the Harvard Joint Center for Housing Studies.

Another major factor in all of this is the fact that Americans are getting married later in life than ever before and they are having fewer kids than previous generations.

In the old days, people got married young and they set up their own households even if they were dirt poor.  But these days we have hordes of single young adults that are perfectly content to sit at home and sponge off of Mommy and Daddy.

There seems to be a real lack of toughness to this generation of young adults, and many that have perceived this lack of toughness have resorted to referring to them as “Generation Snowflake”.  Over the past 12 months this term has become so common that the Guardian has dubbed it “the defining insult of 2016″…

Until very recently, to call someone a snowflake would have involved the word “generation”, too, as it was typically used to describe, or insult, a person in their late teens or early 20s. At the start of November, the Collins English Dictionary added “snowflake generation” to its words of the year list, where it sits alongside other vogue-ish new additions such as “Brexit” and “hygge”. The Collins definition is as follows: “The young adults of the 2010s, viewed as being less resilient and more prone to taking offence than previous generations”. Depending on what you read, being part of the “snowflake generation” may be as benign as taking selfies or talking about feelings too much, or it may infer a sense of entitlement, an untamed narcissism, or a form of identity politics that is resistant to free speech.

The phrase came to prominence in the UK at the beginning of 2016, after Claire Fox, director of the think-tank Institute of Ideas, used it in her book I Find That Offensive to address a generation of young people whom she calls “easily offended and thin-skinned”.

Of course there are exceptions.  I have some close friends that are young adults in this age range, and they are extraordinary people.

But overall, we seem to have dramatically failed this generation.  Maybe it is because we tend to baby our children from a very early age, and we want to protect them from danger so much that we never allow them to be exposed to the challenges that they need to face in order to toughen up and mature.

And it certainly doesn’t help that many of our young adults enter “the real world” already drowning in tens of thousands of dollars of debt.  According to CNN, about 70 percent of all college graduates in the U.S. will leave school with student loan debt, and the average loan balance for those college graduates is approximately $28,950.  Paying off student loan debt can be extremely painful, and it can be financially crippling for young people that are just trying to start their new lives.

When our high school kids are looking toward the future, we very much encourage them to go to the very best schools that they can possibly get into, and we tell them to not even worry about the cost.  We promise them that there will be plenty of good jobs once they graduate, and we push them into these loans without even warning them to consider the future implications.

According to a stunning article in the Wall Street Journal, many Baby Boomers are actually having money taken out of their Social Security checks because of unpaid student loans.  So when you go into student loan debt, it can literally haunt you for the rest of your life…

The government has collected about $1.1 billion from Social Security recipients of all ages to go toward unpaid student loans since 2001, including $171 million last year, the Government Accountability Office said Tuesday. Most affected recipients in fiscal year 2015—114,000—were age 50 or older and receiving disability benefits, with the typical borrower losing about $140 a month. About 38,000 were above age 64.

The report highlights the sharp growth in baby boomers entering retirement with student debt, most of it borrowed years ago to cover their own educations but some used to pay for their children’s schooling. Overall, about seven million Americans age 50 and older owed about $205 billion in federal student debt last year. About 1 in 3 were in default, raising the likelihood that garnishments will increase as more boomers retire.

What we are doing is clearly not working, but I am not particularly optimistic that this system will be fixed any time soon.

If you are a young person, you need to have a solid plan before pursuing an expensive college education.  Many young people just major in anything that they want without even considering if it will lead to a good career.  And instead of working hard to graduate in four years, many decide that they want to stretch the “college experience” out for five or six years so that they can party as much as possible before entering the real world.

The real world is a cold, cruel place, and if you start your new life drowning in debt that is just going to make things even more difficult for you.

On a personal note, I want to thank everyone that has supported the growth of The Most Important News.  It is a central news hub where you can find all of my articles, posts by incredible guest authors and many of the key news stories from all over the globe all gathered in one place.  Some technical issues have forced the site to be down for extended periods of time lately, but now it is being migrated to a much more powerful server.  I will not be updating it during the migration, but I should resume a normal posting schedule again very soon.

And I would like to thank all of my readers for making 2016 an absolutely amazing year.  I love you all, and I wish you all the very best as we head into what should prove to be a very “interesting” 2017.

OLDDOGS COMMENTS!

Personally I look forward to 2017 being just like the last fifty years, because there are fewer and fewer young people with enough intelligence to know how to come in from the rain. Let alone how to provide for a family. There is no doubt in my mind that America is going to be destroyed as far as there being any jobs for the working class. Trump is a ego manic billionaire, so do not put your bets on him doing anything for working class people.

The True History of the Income Tax and IRS Again

December 16th, 2016 by

http://www.paulstramer.net/2016/12/the-true-history-of-income-tax-and-irs.html

12-16-2016-11-04-54-amBy Anna Von Reitz

The first income tax was called “Peter’s Pence” and it was collected along with a Confession of Sins on April 15 every year in both England and France beginning in the early 1100’s as an extra mandatory “offering” to pay for the cost of the Crusades.

Sound familiar?  A tax on income….. a confession (filing)….due on April 15….to support the cost of a war? 

Fast forward to the “American Civil War” — a tax on income fails the constitutional test, but is imposed on all “territorial citizens”, that is, federal civilian and military employees and those born in the “territories and possessions” of the United States.

American state nationals are protected under the provisions of the Constitution(s) but federal citizens are not. Federal citizens can be taxed to the moon and back, and imposed upon and even killed by the whim of Congress acting as a plenary oligarchy operating a foreign municipal city state government.

Look at Article I, Section 8, Clause 17 and read Justice Harlan’s dissenting opinion in Downes v. Bidwell and the rest of the Insular Tariff cases.  You will see what has gone on here, how and why.  You won’t like it a bit, but you will catch on.

The first modern “Internal Revenue Service”—then as now– was operated entirely in international jurisdiction by privateers running first out of Barbados and later removed to Puerto Rico.  The personnel responsible for collecting the tax are Merchant Marine Warrant Officers called “Withholding Agents”. The personnel responsible for oversight of all these Merchant Mariners and federal corporation operators are Internal Revenue Agents.

Abraham Lincoln fundraised for the war effort by selling “1040 Bonds”—- so called because these bonds mature in either 10 or 40 years.  The revenue realized by the sale is used to pay off war debt.

Today, the funds from the yearly collection of “1040 Forms” results in the issuance of more bonds based on the labor and assets of the people, but with the federal government and its “federated state” franchises being the beneficiaries.

Up to World War II, most Americans were not subject to the “federal income tax” at all—- only federal civilian employees, military personnel, African Americans, people born in Puerto Rico, Guam, etc., federal welfare recipients and federal dependents (wards of state such as political asylum seekers), and actual corporations that held their charters under United States auspices were required to file as a condition of their employment or else their receipt of “benefits” from the Public Charitable Trust set up for the relief of poor black plantation slaves who were displaced by the Civil War or the “privilege” of a public charter to do “indemnified” business.

Then, as we entered WWII, Congress passed The Victory Tax—- allowing non-citizens, that is, people who were not federal employees, not political asylum seekers, not African American, etc., to “voluntarily” pay the federal income tax as a patriotic gesture in support of the war effort.

Millions of patriotic American state nationals signed up and gave an average of two bucks extra a month to the government via direct contribution at their workplace, collected by their employers.

There was no specific end date attached to The Victory Tax, because there was no specific known date for the end of the war, so the tax was supposed to end with the “end of hostilities”——meaning in real life, it should have no longer been collected from American state nationals as of August, 1945. 

Instead, the Federales kept right on collecting—-and enforcing the collection— of federal income taxes from people who were never federal citizens and who never knowingly or voluntarily received any charter to operate as federal corporations, and who should have been released from any obligation upon the Japanese surrender.

This is why generations of Internal Revenue Commissioners and other IRS higher-up employees have stood in front of the TV cameras and described this as a “voluntary tax”.  

You were misinformed about the nature of the tax and you were misinformed and told that it applied to you, when in fact it never did. 

The word “income” itself by definition is a corporate accrual.  Your wages, salaries, tips, and other earnings are private property.

So what’s going on here? 

A gigantic, vicious, self-interested  fraud.

The fact is that by far the vast majority of Americans are naturally exempt from the federal income tax, and if you are, you can “revoke your election to pay”.

If you are an average American state national who is self-employed or employed in the private sector, you never really owed the federal income tax in the first place— that is, if you were born on the land of one of the sovereign states and are not voluntarily choosing to operate as a federal corporation named after YOUR NAME, not a federal employee (United States Citizen), not a federal dependent (citizen of the United States), not African American, not born in Puerto Rico, etc. — you are paying a tax you don’t owe, one that never applied to you, and one that can’t be forced upon you if you correctly object. 

As you can see, there are people and there are organizations (actual corporations) that do owe the federal income tax, but there are also millions upon millions of people and organizations who do not and who never did owe any federal income tax who are being coerced and extorted out of large portions of the value of their labor under false pretenses and criminally self-interested legal presumptions.

The last time I looked, the “revocation” clause was located at Section 6013 of the Internal Revenue Code, Title 26.   It gets moved around a bit, thanks to shuffling of pages and sections, but it remains as it has to remain as remedy for the crime being perpetuated against the people of this country.

You are free to send Notice to the Commissioner(s) of Revenue declaring your decision to “revoke my election to pay federal income taxes” at any time, and once you do this, you can NEVER pay federal income taxes again—by law.

This will, I know, be a great disappointment to many…..

However, there are a couple of caveats yet to be observed.

Your letter of revocation must be proven to be received, so you have to  keep your mailing receipt and a copy of your letter and a return receipt, if at all possible, to prove that you sent your correspondence and that it was received by the (now three) IRS, Internal Revenue Service, and INTERNAL REVENUE SERVICE Commissioners.

You have to remember that the federal fiscal year ends June 30 and begins July 1 of each year and that “tax years” lag behind normal calendar years.  Thus, if you wish to stop paying taxes effective with the federal tax year of 2012, you would make your revocation of election effective July 1, 2011—-the prior year.

And you should be at some pains to explain that you “made a mistake” and that you were never actually a volunteer Warrant Officer in the Merchant Marine Service and were confused about what a “Withholding Agent” was when you signed your prior 1040 forms. 

Now that you know, you won’t be confused again….

The submission of a 1040, 1065, or any other “federal” tax form creates the presumption that you are either a “United States Citizen” (employee) or “citizen of the United States” (slave) or operator of a federal corporation (YOUR NAME) or an actual business corporation with a federal charter.  This presumption can be rebutted with a “revocation of election to pay” or simply never filing any federal tax forms to begin with and standing your ground as a private American state national—so long as you are not naturally a member of one of those groups who are actually required to pay federal income taxes.

If you have already made the mistake of filing paperwork as a “Withholding Agent”, the act of doing so creates a “novation contract” which is a repetition of performance contract—–another legal presumption that you are in fact a volunteer Warrant Officer in the Merchant Marines and that you will be filing tax forms again the next year.

This is what gives rise to “Failure to File” charges. 

However, now that you have admitted your mistake and that you know what a Withholding Agent is —and know that you are not a Withholding Agent—it would be illegal inducement to perjure yourself to require you to file anything saying that you were voluntarily acting in that capacity, wouldn’t it?

Yes, indeed.  It would.

One of the most curious facts is that if you file a 1040 or other form and you make any mistakes at all—- on purpose or not — you can be held accountable for a felony and up to five years in prison and all sorts of fines.  But if you never file anything at all, the most you can be charged with is a misdemeanor and up to a year in jail.

This is because when you claim under penalty of perjury to be a federal officer —- a Withholding Agent— and fail to perform your duty, it is a serious crime under martial law.  But when you claim no such official capacity and are merely presumed to be a “federal citizen” in the first place, the court has nothing but a legal presumption backing its actions against you and no actual evidence provided by your wet-ink signature on a 1040 or other filing.

So bust their presumptions. If you aren’t naturally subject to federal territorial or municipal jurisdiction, nor overjoyed with the “service” you are receiving from the “federal government” corporation and its federated “states of states”—– claim your exemption. Revoke your election to pay federal income taxes.  Stop paying the Beast that is offering to eat you.

It is your right and at some point, your responsibility, to see to it that your money is funding the actual government that is owed to you and not a fly-by-night foreign subcontractor making false claims against you and fleecing you blind.

It has become clear to me after numerous conversations with people I was trying to help, the average person is so intimidated by the I.R.S. they will not even consider standing up to them. Ditto, with just about any branch of the corporate government, and look at what the E.P.A. is doing to millions of property owners. Americans simply do not have the courage to defend their self, or their family. What a bunch of pussies! Will the real Americans please stand up!

Don’t Worry About The ‘National Debt’

October 12th, 2016 by

http://alt-market.com/articles/3033-dont-worry-about-the-national-debt

10-12-2016-11-40-33-am

This article was written by Bob Livingston and originally published at Personal Liberty Digest

There’s been some talk on the campaign trail about the “national debt,” which the government and media tell us stands at more than $19 trillion. During the vice presidential debate last week, Mike Pence stated that the national debt has doubled under President Barack Obama.

But what does the “national debt” really mean? Would you be shocked to know that we have in America the identical monetary system that Hitler had and that Russia had and has? We also have a propaganda machine that would have made Hitler blush.

Since U.S. “money” (and the money of the whole world) is bank credit and since bank credit is created by government and commercial banks, then the “national debt” represents bank credit passed or “loaned” upon an unsuspecting public for their real assets and labor.

Translated: Modern money (bank credit) expropriates wealth. In truth then, the huge reported “national debt” is how much wealth the government has stolen from the American people — not how much the government owes.

The “national debt” propaganda covers the fraud that our real assets and real wealth are flowing to the government for exchange of government-created credit. Just try to get it back!

Yes, indeed, this is witchcraft that reverses our thought processes. And yes, the national debt is an asset to the government, not a liability. Real assets stolen with bank credit are assets to the government, not debt.

Proof: When the local commercial bank “loans” you money (credit) that they create with a bookkeeping entry, this transaction appears on their books as an asset (a deposit) to the bank and a liability (debt) to the borrower who pledged real assets as collateral. Yes, your debt is the bank’s asset. This same system works with the U.S. monetary system.

Fractional reserve banking is a government-approved Ponzi scheme. Banks hold only a fraction of your money in an account, and they do not have reserves on hand to cover all the debt owed them by their customers and the savings customers have deposited. In other words, all banks are bankrupt except for their ability to “create” money.

How do they do this? Based on a formula created by the Fed, a new bank can open with a small amount of invested capital, have zero net transaction accounts (no money on deposit) and immediately “lend” up to $9.3 million by simply creating new money on a computer.

So let’s say that you borrow $200,000 at 5 percent interest on a 25-year note from the bank mentioned above (the one with no money on deposit) to buy a house. You make a monthly payment of $1,169.18 to the bank in the form of your mortgage payment. By the time you have paid off your loan, you have paid the bank a total of $350,754.02. In other words, the bank has now profited to the tune of $350,000 from you on money that never existed. And should you have defaulted on your loan, not only would you have lost whatever money you had paid prior to the default, the bank would own your home outright through a repossession.

The Federal Reserve (which is neither a federal agency nor does it hold any reserves) works this way, by “lending” money to other banks, through either a mark on a ledger sheet or by computer transfer. Real money never changes hands.

Do you think that the government and the politicians want to keep this a secret? For some reason, the Federal Reserve spilled the beans in its publication “Keeping Our Money Healthy,” published by the Federal Reserve Bank of New York in which it said, “our system works only with credit.” All we have to know then is who creates credit, and how is it used?

Fact: Wealth always flows to the creators of credit. Government and banks create money (credit) for one purpose and that is to expropriate wealth. The expropriation of wealth is stealing with no payment intended.

Not only has the government stolen the national wealth and called it the national debt, they have the people believing that they still owe a national debt. Economic writers and pundits will often tell you that each American owes $61,000 (or some similar number) to pay off the national debt.

In other words, after being robbed with credit, the “national debt” implies that we owe the amount stolen from us. An entity which creates credit out of nothing and “pays” it for real assets and production is not assuming a debt by any definition. It is stealing and calling the theft debt. The creation and control of all credit in the hands of a central bank (government) is the fifth plank of the Communist Manifesto. Look honestly at the American monetary system and you are looking tyranny and slavery in the face.

In a booklet entitled “The National Debt,” published by the Philadelphia Federal Reserve Bank, we get this quote:

“The Federal Reserve, in cooperation with the Federal Government, has the inherent power to create money (credit) — almost any amount of it. This power makes bankruptcy out of the question.”

What the crowd believes is wrong and always has been. The crowd believes that there is a “national debt.” They believe this for good reason. There is a whole industry of deception in America which is promoting the national debt myth.

You have heard of vested interest. Well, this national debt propaganda is U.S. government vested interest. This is a mind-twisting myth covered by hard propaganda that nobody will even question. The reason that this is so is simply the existence of widespread ignorance of the nature of modern money (bank credit) and just how bank credit or government credit transfers real resources to the banks and the Federal Government without payment of any kind. Can you guess why nobody wants you to understand that modern money is bank credit that is created out of nothing and “loaned” or “paid” into circulation in exchange for real resources? This is why we say that modern money expropriates wealth.

Think now for a moment. The reported “national debt” has gone into the stratosphere with and since the massive creation of credit. The “national debt” drama did not blast off until all gold and silver as money were removed from circulation by government force. The federal government, with credit money, has in this generation replaced hard currency and hard money with hard propaganda. Under this mirage, they have stolen the wealth and production of the American people and impoverished them. They have stolen the national wealth and there is only one big pool left to steal. The “trillions” in pension funds Americans now hold.

Under pretense and charade from the politicians there is a great threat hanging over this reservoir of credit in private hands. Everybody who has savings or a pension fund needs to understand that nobody owns and controls credit but the federal government — an immoral federal government. If you think that you own your “money,” you need to take a sober moment and try to understand our bank credit money system. Every “penny” that we have left is at risk.

The good news is that it can be reversed if only we will stop believing government propaganda and its army of puppeteers about the “national debt.” The mystique about bank credit (money) fades once we look at the facts and revelations published by none other than the Federal Reserve bank itself.

There is a small cadre of hard core monetary realists in America who have discovered and uncovered the monolithic fraud and deception of theft with bank credit. But this deception is enshrouded with all the force of the system and there will be few who will inquire. It is only our lives, our substance, and posterity at stake. Every thought that we have, every financial decision that we make, every plan that we have for our future and our children’s future depends on our information, based on facts and reality, not “conventional wisdom.”

Moral decay, economic crisis, and all wars are created with bank credit. Needless to say, the hour is late, but not too late if only we are willing. The truth can be known.

Considering the enormity of government abuse we have been subjected to, is it not stupid of us to vote for the next round of murderous thieves the media pukes entertain us with?

Proper Wording for the Necessary Actions and Documents Part One

August 8th, 2016 by

http://www.paulstramer.net/2016/08/proper-wording-for-necessary-actions.html

12-21-2015 3-19-06 PMBy Anna Von Reitz
Proper Wording for the Necessary Actions and Documents Part One

Each state is different when it comes to Adult Name Changes. Most states post a simple form on the web if you search for the information using a query like “Adult Name Change California”.

This form asks very basic questions. No, you are not a “United States Citizen” — you are an “Other”, if the form for your state asks, and that means you are a Hawaiian, Texan, Floridian, Wisconsinite, etc. in case anyone asks.

The most important question is— your reason for the name change?
Reply that you wish to adopt the proper English Grammar and your correct Christian appellation.

Nobody can argue with that, especially since the all UPPER CASE style is a “Glossa” and known to be a corruption of Latin that reduces to gibberish and is in a sign language incompatible with English.

You fill out the form, you pay a fee from between $50 and $150, using a Money Order made out to the proper court, and you wait while the court gives public notice. Then you attend a Hearing in person. This takes all of about two minutes. The Judge asks if you are doing this to avoid debt or engage in any illegal purpose. You aren’t, so you answer— no. You wait again, for a final public notice period. The court issues a decree officially changing your name back to the Upper and Lower Case form.

In most states you get a certified copy of the actual Court Order. This will have wet-ink signatures and a blue wet-ink stamp on it. If you don’t receive this in the mail, you will have to go to the Court Clerk and request (and pay for) a certified copy of the Court Order.

Now, you have been made an offer of a new name by the court, and you are going to accept it.
You are going to draft a very simple “Deed of Acknowledgement, Acceptance, and Re-conveyance Without Consideration”. You are going to attach this document on top of the certified copy of the court order decreeing the name change—-and you are going to record this package with the local Land Recording Office as a Miscellaneous Land Deed.

Here is an example of what this document needs to say:
“On this 18th day of July in the year 2016 I have received and do accept my own Trade Name doing business as Anna Maria Riezinger and do re-convey it to Lawful Jurisdiction and its native domicile on the soil and the land of the wisconsin state and do place this Deed upon the Alaska State Court of Record, Third Postal District, in token of my action.”

In the example, the 18th of July was the first full effective day of the name change decree–that is, the day AFTER the day set by the court as the “effective date” of the change, which was July 17, 2016. Doing it the day after means that there is no possible question of whether the decree was in effect or not.
Stipulating that the Name received is your own Trade Name prevents any further shimmy-shally claim that it is a Foreign Situs Trust or other incorporated franchise name.

Re-conveying to “Lawful Jurisdiction” spells out that you are operating under the actual Constitution and Common Law and placing the Name back in its “native domicile on the soil and land” makes it absolutely clear that it is not naturally subject to international jurisdiction. “Soil” is the actual “dust” from which we are formed and “land” is the mixture of “soil and water” standing upright which our bodies are.

Please note that it is the “soil and land” of the “wisconsin state”—I was born and raised in Wisconsin, so whatever soil and water made me came from wisconsin, the actual, factual organic state. Use the name of your birth state written in all small letters to express this fact: nevada, north carolina, florida, texas, etc.
Please note that the Deed is being placed on the “Alaska State Court of Record” —- not any “State of Alaska Court”—because I am now living in Alaska and filing a Land Asset Deed through the Alaska Recorder’s Office. It goes in the Miscellaneous file, because there are no metes and bounds or other geographic description of “Anna Maria Riezinger”— even though I am made of “land” and am considered a land asset.

Thanks to chicanery that went on after the Civil War, the land jurisdiction “State” was separated from the sea jurisdiction “State”, and the difference was designated by referring to either the “Florida State” (land) or the “State of Florida” (sea) for example. In the same way the courts are all separated:
The Alaska State Superior Court operates on the land jurisdiction, whereas the “State of Alaska” Courts operate in one of two other capacities—-either as (1) private, in-house corporate tribunals of the local “State of” franchise, or (2) as maritime/admiralty courts in the international jurisdiction of the sea.

The same applies at the “district” level—- the United States District Court, Third Postal District is a land court, but the United States District Court, Third Judicial District is a sea court.

As you are land and belong to the land all actions regarding your Trade Name must be addressed to the land jurisdiction State, land jurisdiction Court of Record, land jurisdiction district, etc. using the name conventions like this: Iowa State, Iowa State Court, Iowa State Assembly, Iowa State……and any action you bring before a district court must be brought in the “Postal District” not the “Judicial District”.

Okay, so now that you know all the background behind this simple little “Deed”, you take it to the Land Recording Office and record it. If you live in a state where the Recorder’s Office also collects taxes, you ask them to apply the $9 RHSP stamp to your deed, and you place a $1 Global Postage Stamp on the face of the Deed to be recorded.

This fulfills a $10 “stamp tax” that was imposed in 1802 for the cost of “reconveying” an asset from the sea jurisdiction to the land jurisdiction.

If you live in a state where the Recorder’s Office is separate from the tax collection agency, you will have to take a certified copy of your recorded “Deed” to the taxing agency and have them apply the RHSP stamp, put the $1 Global Postage Stamp on the face of your certified copy, and then re-record this completed “stamped and certified” Deed back through the Recorder’s Office again.

These Rotters don’t make it easy. They only charge $9 for the stamp leaving you a “dollar short and a day late”—-unless you give them the additional “good and equitable service” of the postage stamp applied to the front of the document.

No matter what, you now have all the information you need to dance through their maze and get to your goal— a “Deed” to your own Trade Name properly stamped and paid for, recorded, and if necessary, re-recorded.

Finally, you are ready to serve Notice on the Court of your return action. For this you draft up another simple little form of your own making.

In the upper right hand corner in small print you write your name and mailing address and telephone number. You title this document the same way the name change decree is titled— for example, “IN THE SUPERIOR COURT FOR THE STATE OF IDAHO AT BOISE”.

You identify your Upper and Lower Case Name as the “Plaintiff” and the all UPPER CASE NAME as the “Defendant” and you reference the Case Number of the Name Change action.

Then write another title, such as “Notice of Deed”, and a brief statement to the effect and for example: “I, Elizabeth Ann Crowley, hereby give notice of my acknowledgement and acceptance and re-conveyance of my Trade Name Elizabeth Ann Crowley to the land jurisdiction of the idaho state. I am attaching a certified copy of the recorded Deed to be annexed to the court file. Notice to agents is notice to principals, notice to principals is notice to agents.”

Sign it and date it and certify it —- meaning, at the bottom of the page write:
“I certify that on ______________a true, complete, and correct copy of this Notice and supporting documents attached was hand-delivered to the Clerk of the above named COURT.” —and sign and date that again.

Make two copies of this Notice of Deed, one attached to the certified copy of the recorded Deed of Acknowledgement, Acceptance, and Re-Conveyance Without Consideration, and one in your hand to be date stamped as received by the Clerk of the COURT for your records.

If you are as paranoid as I am, you may want to trot right on over to the Recorder’s Office and have your date-stamped Notice of Deed recorded and annexed to the already recorded Deed of Acknowledgement, Acceptance, and Re-Conveyance.

Congratulations! You are back where you started, standing on Terra Firma as an American State National in control of your Trade Name and with the bit between your teeth! You will still have to take additional steps to regain control of the ALL CAPS “person”, but that is coming soon.

Obuma’s support of radical Islam and the rise of ISIS

June 21st, 2016 by

http://www.familysecuritymatters.org/publications/detail/obamas-support-of-radical-islam-and-the-rise-of-isis?f=must_reads

6-21-2016 8-22-18 AMBy LAWRENCE SELLIN, PHD June 18, 2016

The foreign policy for dealing with radical Islam pursued by Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton can best be described as the intersection of ideology and incompetence.

Obama’s “amore” for radical Islam began in 2009, soon after his inauguration, when he ordered his administration not to support the Iranian Green Revolution after thousands of brave Iranian democracy protesters rose up against the brutal Khamenei regime.

According to the Wall Street Journal: “Obama administration officials at the time were working behind the scenes with the Sultan of Oman to open a channel to Tehran. The potential for talks with Iran-and with Mr. Khamenei as the ultimate arbiter of any nuclear agreement,” one that would prove to be a national security disaster for the US. As it turned out, Obama’s Iran nuclear agreement only strengthen the hard-liners; since completion of the agreement, Tehran has stepped up arrests of political opponents.

In 2010, Obama ordered his advisors to produce a secret report, later known as Presidential Study Directive-11 (PSD-11), which concluded that the United States should shift from its longstanding policy of supporting stable but authoritarian regimes in the Middle East and North Africa to one backing, what Obama Administration officials considered groups such as the Muslim Brotherhood and the Turkish AK Party, now led by President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, as a so-called “moderate” alternative to more violent Islamist groups like al Qaeda and the Islamic State.

The Muslim Brotherhood was founded in Egypt in 1928 as a Sunni Islamist religious, political and social movement, whose fundamental goal remains Islam’s global domination and the implementation of Sharia. Although the Muslim Brotherhood uses political instruments more than violence, its radical goals are no different from al-Qaeda and ISIS.

It has long been suspected that Obama, not only supports the Muslim Brotherhood, but that his administration is infiltrated by the Brotherhood, including Hillary Clinton’s long-serving assistant, Huma Abedin, who has enjoyed an intensely close relationship with the Islamist organization for decades.

Therein rests the motivation for the policies formulated and actions taken by Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton in Egypt, Libya and Syria, all of which led to the growth of radical Islam in North Africa and the Middle East.

The Tunisian revolution in December 2010 and the rise of the Islamist Ennahda Movement in that country was quickly followed by the Cairo protests that began on January 25, 2011 under the direction of Egypt’s largest opposition group, the Muslim Brotherhood. The protests and associated violence led to the resignation on February 11, 2011 of long-time US ally, Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak. There are now a number of reports indicating the US cooperated with and attempted to sustain the influence of the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt, including an alleged Brotherhood agent inside the US Embassy in Cairo.

Violent regime change in support of radical Islam began in earnest on February 15, 2011, when a rebellion broke out in Benghazi, Libya against the authoritarian regime of Muammar Qaddafi. Toppling Qaddafi had long been a goal of Islamic militant groups, including al-Qaeda and the local Libyan al-Qaeda affiliate, the Libyan Islamic Fighting Group (LIFG), a key player in the anti-Qaddafi rebellion.

Within a few weeks of the outbreak of fighting in eastern Libya, Obama has signed a secret order authorizing a covert CIA operation to support Islamist rebel forces seeking to oust Libyan leader Muammar Qaddafi. Both inside and outside the Obama administration, then Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was among the most vocal early proponents of using U.S. military force to unseat Qaddafi. Seven months and thousands of more unnecessary deaths later, in October 2011, after an extended military campaign with sustained Western support, Islamist rebel forces conquered the country and shot Qaddafi dead. Many will recall Hillary Clinton, on October 20, 2011, cackling to a TV news reporter over the death of Qaddafi: “We came, we saw, he died.”

Since then, Libya has been in a constant state of chaos, with factional infighting, no uniting leader and has provided a haven for ISIS and other Islamic terrorists; culminating in the September 11, 2012 attack on the US Consulate in Benghazi and the death of four Americans.

In released, but redacted emails, Hillary Clinton expressed interest in arming Libyan opposition groups using private security contractors. In an April 8, 2011 email to her then-deputy chief of staff, Jake Sullivan, Clinton wrote: “FYI. The idea of using private security experts to arm the opposition should be considered.” It now appears probable that, in 2011, at Clinton’s urging, Obama secretly approved the arming of rebels in Libya and, later Syria by the same method, via a third party, likely Qatar, who had brokered the sale of more than $100 million in crude oil from rebel-held areas.

The rise of ISIS can be directly linked to the power vacuum left after the premature withdrawal of US forces from Iraq in December 2011 and fueled by American abdication of a foreign policy in Syria, where we sub-contracted our interests to Saudi Arabia, Qatar, and Turkey. Not surprisingly, those countries pursued their own interests; the Saudis supporting radical Islamic Salafists, while the Turks and Qataris backed the Muslim Brotherhood.

By the summer of 2012, Turkey, together with Saudi Arabia and Qatar, had constructed a fully operational secret command and control center to facilitate communications and the movement of weapons to the Syrian rebel groups. The center in Adana, a city in southern Turkey about 100 km (60 miles) from the Syrian border, was set up after Saudi Deputy Foreign Minister Prince Abdulaziz bin Abdullah al-Saud visited Turkey and requested it. Adana is home to Incirlik, a large Turkish/U.S. air force base which Washington has used in the past for reconnaissance and military logistics operations. Adana is in close proximity to the Turkish port of Iskenderun, a major transit point for arms destined for the Syrian rebels.

It is important to note that Obama’s friend, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, is a Sunni Islamist, a vehement opponent of Syrian President Bashar al Assad and a fervent supporter of the Sunni Muslim Brotherhood.

Assad has placed emphasis on controlling northwest Syria, which safeguards his Shia-Alawite home region and his base of support, as well as securing the strategically critical coastal area containing the Latakia airbase used by Russian forces and the important port of Tartus – a situation that has largely left eastern Syria along the Iraq border open for Islamist exploitation.

Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) report sent to Hillary Clinton and other administration officials in August 2012 and declassified in May 2015, stated that “the Salafist, the Muslim Brotherhood, and AQI (Al- Qaeda in Iraq, which became ISIS) are the major forces driving the insurgency in Syria,” and being supported by “the West, Gulf countries and Turkey.”

The report goes into detail about how the West was actively helping those opposition groups control the eastern border of Syria near the Iraqi province of Anbar and the strategic city of Mosul, both of which eventually came under control of ISIS.

The stupidity of Obama’s ideological and Muslim Brotherhood-centric policy in dealing with radical Islam is only exceeded by the galactic incompetence in which it was carried out, and has left us living in a more dangerous world.

The MOST Dangerous Man In America

April 15th, 2016 by

4-15-2016 11-38-11 AM4-15-2016 11-42-42 AM

The most dangerous man in America knows — without any doubt whatsoever — that the U.S. Federal Government executed the false flag terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001.  They know that this highly calculated and synthetic form of terrorism was perpetrated to terrorize the American people into supporting a fake War on Terror.  They know that 9/11 was a multi-decade conspiracy (based on Operation Northwoods) that was perpetrated by the NWO ruling cabal as a means to foist a One World Government upon the world community of nations. They actually know this and much more about what truly happened in New York City and Washington, D.C. on that fateful day of profound betrayal and deceit.

9/11: Russia Presents Evidence Against US, UK And Israel Co-Conspirators

The most dangerous man in America knows — with absolute certainty — that John F. Kennedy was executed by the CIA which was acting on behalf of the International Banking Cartel and Military-Industrial Complex.  They know that Kennedy, at the time, was actually the most dangerous man in America and had to be eliminated if the New World Order (NWO) agenda was to proceed forthwith.  They also know that every U.S. president since JFK has been handpicked by the World Shadow Government and not elected by the American people.

CIA & Company: The Real Plotters Behind JFK’s Assassination

The most dangerous man in America knows that the U.S. electoral process is nothing but a sham whereby the ruling elites choose in advance both candidates every four years.  They know that these pre-selected pawns have been fastidiously vetted so as to be sufficiently assured that the selected ones will never leave the NWO reservation.  They know that both main party candidates will always be considered the lesser of the two evils by their respective constituencies.  In this way the electorate forever experiences the pendulum of presidential politics being swung to greater extremes with each successive election cycle.

Circus Politics: Will Our Freedoms Survive Another Presidential Election?

The most dangerous man in America knows — without a shadow of a doubt — that the Oklahoma City Bombing was a government-coordinated false flag bombing that was designed to greatly diminish the patriot movement that was growing in the wake of the President Bush-sponsored Savings and Loan scandal.  They know that such ‘homegrown’ terrorism in OK City was manufactured by the Clinton Administration in order to reverse the fast-growing trend toward militia formation around the country.  They also know that the anger was clearly brewing then and that the banking elites were determined to quell in advance any threats to their safety.

Oklahoma City Bombing: All Evidence Point To The U.S. Federal Government

The most dangerous man in America knows — with complete assurance — that the 1993 WACO massacre of innocents was also carried out to tar and feather gun owners everywhere so that all firearm-carrying citizens would be looked at as radicals.  They also know that such a conflagration would be forever associated with any type of religious practice that was not patently mainstream.  They know that all forms of unorthodox spiritual pursuit were purposefully linked to the Branch Davidian sect at Waco just as they were to the Jonestown massacre and the Heaven’s Gate cult mass suicide (read slaughter).

WACO: WHAT REALLY HAPPENED

The most dangerous man in America knows that the United States of America was socially engineered, with meticulous deliberation, into the “Military Arm of the New World Order” .  They know that every major government initiative that has occurred in the USA over the past 100 years has transformed the political class into a war-mongering gang of jackals.  They know that the steady brainwashing known as American Exceptionalism has imprinted the body politic with an acceptance of the perpetual war economy.

The USA: Military Arm Of The New World Order

The most dangerous man in America knows that the mainstream media (MSM) is nothing but a propaganda organ of the CIA, DIA, NSA, DARPA and other alphabet soup agencies of the rogue U.S. Federal Government.  They know that all the major news- reporting companies are completely controlled by the CIA.  They know that all book publishing, music production, motion picture production and TV programming must be explicitly approved by the CIA.  They also know that not a single movie ever gets released without direct involvement of the extremely secret military office which is oversees National Security issues.

Who REALLY Controls The Mainstream Media?

The most dangerous man in America knows — with unshakable belief — that the Federal Reserve System (FED) was established by an international crime syndicate in order to fleece the American people.  They know that a Federal Reserve Note is neither federal, nor held in reserve.  They know that a “Note” is a debt instrument, not a hard asset like an ounce of gold or silver.  They also know that the Federal Reserve Bank is an unlawful banking entity that was established by the unlawful Federal Reserve Act and that it is utterly bankrupt.  They know the FED has usurped the constitutional power of the U.S. Treasury to the great detriment of the American people.

Who Owns The Federal Reserve?

The most dangerous man in America knows — beyond any doubt — that the Internal Revenue Service is nothing but a glorified collection agency that enforces the unlawful IRS tax code with violent tactics and thuggery.  They know that the IRS Commissioners have been unable to point to a single law that permits them to properly collect income tax.  They also know that the IRS is guilty of functioning as a multi-decade protection racket operating in violation of RICO and therefore subject to prosecution under the applicable federal statutes.

The most dangerous man in America knows — with total confidence — that the stock market is nothing but the largest gambling casino on Earth.  They know that all the markets have morphed into a global confidence game where the con men always win the day.  Like Vegas, they know that the house has had the whole game rigged since day one in favor of the ‘smart money’.  They also know that every market — equity and bond, currency and commodity, real estate and insurance, derivative and carbon — are all grossly over-inflated and poised for a bubble burst.

THE BIGGEST BUBBLE EVER IS BURSTING—BIG TIME!

The most dangerous man in America knows — with certitude — that the current stock market frenzy is nothing but a Sucker’s Rally, and perhaps a set up for what may become the greatest sucker’s rally of all time.  They know that the current economic indicators and financial data reflect a coming economic Armageddon and financial Apocalypse.  They also know that it’s NOT going to be pretty for anyone who is still in the game.  Are you?

The BIGGEST Sucker’s Rally of the Millennium

The most dangerous man in America knows — with increasing awareness — that the global chemical geoengineering regime is directly responsible for global climate change. They know that all the fraudulent CO2 data has been fabricated in order to create a new bogeyman with which to scare and stampede the world community of nation into a pen of compliance with U.N. Agenda 21 and obedience toward the dictates of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.  They also know that chemtrail aerosols have many chemical compounds and weaponized biologicals which are extremely harmful to Earth’s biota, and are bioengineered to be especially injurious to human life.

U.S. Government Spraying Tons Of Toxic Coal Fly Ash Into Atmosphere Via Chemtrails

The most dangerous man in America knows that the global warming scam was started in the post World War II years after the entire Solar System showed signs of systemic transmutation.  They know that this natural occurrence was the result of forces far outside of the province of mankind.  They also know that the geoengineering regime was then formulated in order to exacerbate the warming trends so that a new Global CO2 Management Regime and Carbon Control Matrix could be imposed on the world community of nations as a precursor to a One World Government.

NWO Cabal Pursues Total Dominion Over The Earth’s Weather And Natural Resources

The most dangerous man in America knows that the nation’s water supplies have been fluoridated for many decades in order to slowly poison the American people.  They know that the specific form of fluoride used is highly toxic and used in rat poison.  They know that repeated exposure to fluoride will calcify the pineal gland and produce many other adverse health conditions and serious medical ailments.  They also know that the consistent ingestion of fluoride will predispose the human brain to a whole host of subliminal programming techniques, particularly those of the TV programming variety.

A Fluoride-Free Pineal Gland Is More Important Than Ever

The most dangerous man in America knows that the extraordinary push to thoroughly “GMO” the world’s food supply is part of a sinister agenda working toward transhumanism.  They know that the real health consequences of GMO foods are many and diverse, as well as incalculable and unknown in many cases.  They know that corporations such as Monsanto were established to manufacture poisonous agents like Agent Orange in order to test them on unsuspecting populations around the globe.

Respected Analyst Says GMOs Could Destroy Life on the Planet

The most dangerous man in America knows that the current super-vaccination agenda is the single greatest threat to the health of the children of the world.  They know that injecting infants and young children with dangerous chemical and biological agents will short-circuit the normal immune response as well as negatively affect immune system development.  They know that vaccines have been used for the deliberate infection of children and have provided a primary vector of spreading certain diseases across the planet. They also know that vaccination programs are routinely chipping children with unknown bioengineered technologies in order to produce specific outcomes.

THE VACCINE CONSPIRACY: U.S. Government Colludes With BIG Pharma To Poison The America People

The most dangerous man in America knows that the world food supply which is being produced by Agribusiness adheres strictly to the chemical agriculture paradigm. They know that untold numbers and amounts of pesticides, fungicides, herbicides, insecticides, chemical fertilizers, antibiotics, bovine growth hormones, etc. are systematically utilized throughout every phase of farming and animal husbandry.  They also know that much food production is taking place in areas which are exposed to nuclear power plant radioactivity, industrial chemical pollution and microwave frequencies.

The most dangerous man in America knows that the whole planet is now swirling in a veritable soup of electro-pollution and microwave frequencies and ionizing radiation. They know that microwave ovens have been destroying cooked foods for decades and that microwave towers are disseminating dangerous frequencies wherever they exist.  They know that every nuclear power plant is in the state of its own type of accelerating technospheric breakdown and that society is now exposed to many vectors of radioactivity which are inexorably causing a mutation of the human species.  They especially know that smart and cell phone mania are slowly destroying the brains of the users.

Microwave Ovens: Remove Them From Your Kitchens … NOW!

The most dangerous man in America knows that the entire world has been owned and operated by Corporate America, a division of Anglo-American Corporate, Inc. which is in turn a subsidiary of the Vatican, INC.  They know that the Global Economic and Financial System provides the superstructure by which the masses of the world are held in a debt prison.  They also know that the banking and investment banking companies are tasked with the administration of an oppressive system of usury and debt slavery which keeps countless residents of the planet in the state of lifelong servitude.

The Government-Corporate Complex Takes Complete Control Of The USA

The most dangerous man in America knows that the national security state (NSS) that has been painstakingly established since the U.S.  Government-sponsored  9/11 terror attacks was not conceived to protect Americans from its enemies.  They know that the NSS was implemented with all deliberate speed to protect the plutocratic ruling elites and kleptocratic political class from the citizenry.  The NWO cabal knew that, sooner or later, the American people would become aware that all terror is synthesized for the purpose of controlling them, the populace.  They also knew that, when that day of reckoning occurred, all hell would break loose French Revolution-style.

SERCO: Foreign Outsourcing Giant Takes Over the US National Security State

The most dangerous man in America knows that the current U.S. President and Vice President were fraudulently elected as were the previous Republican POTUS and VPOTUS.  They know full well that Barack Obama is an imposter who possesses no legitimate birth certificate. They also know that the present administration was installed to restart the Cold War with Russia, take over the Middle East via the engineered Arab Spring and ISIS terrorism, as well as incite the Ukraine civil war. They also know that Obama was handpicked to establish Obamacare and, most importantly, to remove the Second Amendment from the Bill of Rights.  They are especially aware that Obama has effectively dissolved U.S. sovereignty by way of the advancement of the TPP and TPIP via his prior approval of TPA.

The Obamanation: How One President Irreparably Destroyed The USA

The most dangerous man in America knows that the current war refugee crisis in the Middle East and European economic migrant calamity were engineered in the capitals of the Anglo-American Axis*.  They know that the American immigration crisis and border collapse was manufactured in Washington, D.C. as well as in corporate boardrooms across the USA.  They know that these and other other social engineering cataclysms are specifically designed to destroy national boundaries worldwide.  They also know that the rampant false flag terrorism is perpetrated everywhere in order to greatly increase global security concerns so that a New World Order may be imposed and then administered by a One World Government.

STRATFOR Chief Reveals Zio-Anglo-American Plot For World Domination

The most dangerous man in America knows that vast majority of human beings are hopelessly addicted to deception. They know that this is the primary reason for the bleak state of the world.  They are acutely aware that the addiction to deception is, in fact, the primordial deception invariably found at the roots of all the other addictions. They know that, as long as the masses are slaves to this particular addiction and therefore to the many other well-known addictions which plague humankind, the challenge of transforming the planetary civilization into an enlightened and peaceful one remains exceedingly elusive and quite daunting.

Are The Markets HOPELESSLY Addicted to Deception?

Now YOU know why YOU are “The most dangerous man or woman in America”.

The upshot of this discussion is that when the American people really do wake up, the “military arm of the NWO” will collapse in a day and a night.  Then, there is no one nation or other entity to enforce the global tyranny that has relentlessly terrorized the planet for so many centuries, and even over millennia.

This is why YOU are “The most dangerous man or woman in America”!

Let’s get busy … … … creating many other “dangerous men and women in America”.

FOR THOSE WHO DOUBT THE UNITED STATES IS INCORPORATED HERE IT IS RIGHT IN ITS OWN LAWS:

March 23rd, 2016 by

By Marilyn Barnewall

(15) “United States” means—

(A) a Federal corporation;

(B) an agency, department, commission, board, or other entity of the United States; or

(C) an instrumentality of the United States.

HERE’S THE LAW IN QUESTION:

Under title 28 U.S. Code § 3002 subsections 15 and 15(A), “United States” means — (A) a Federal corporation.” It is right in their laws!

HERE’S THE LINK TO TITLE 28 US CODE 3002 (SCROLL DOWN TO#15):

https://www.law.cornell.edu/uscode/text/28/3002

Most of us over the age of 10 remember our car trips cross-country; when you entered a city, it was clearly identified as being Incorporated by a sign at the city limits.  Cities are incorporated, the federal government is incorporated, each State is incorporated, and each County is incorporated, too.  Each Department within cities and counties is also incorporated… your courts, your libraries, your clerk and recorder, parks and recreation – all of them.  If they were not incorporated, it would be impossible for money to be transferred to any of them by the federally-incorporated United States, Inc.  This is not difficult to understand – I realize it is very difficult to believe. 

Anyone who understands Business 101 knows that corporations function from By-Laws, not from a Constitution with a Bill of Rights.  This is why we have unlawful Administrative Courts… Common Law cannot function and has no jurisdiction in the world of corporate law… and corporations are governed by the Uniform Commercial Code (UCC) which is a reflection of Maritime Law (which is why you see all of the flags in our courtrooms with gold trim on them… the American flag has no gold trim – even Dwight Eisenhower commented on this).

I hope you find this helpful.  MB 

OLDDOGS COMMENTS!

I can forgive anyone for not taking my word on this subject, but you have to be completely brain dead not to take Marilyn’s word for it.

Ode to Sheriff Mack How To Get Enforcement of the Actual Law of the Land?

People all over this country are complaining about “lack of enforcement” of the basic Organic and Public Laws. I hate to break it to you, but you all have to take action in your own behalf to provide enforcement. You are “self-governing”— remember?
The rats— for profit governmental services corporations run by banks– have usurped upon your lawful jurisdiction and set up incorporated “Counties” and incorporated “States”. As soon as you incorporate anything, it is removed from the jurisdiction of the land and taken out from under the Law of the Land (including the Constitution) and moved to the international jurisdiction of the sea and the Law of the Sea.

As a result, you no longer have Sheriffs operating under the Law of the Land and you no longer have enforcement of the Organic and Public Laws. What you have are men in “similarly named” private corporate offices—Mall Cops and commercial mercenaries– who are charged with enforcement of “codes, regulations, and statutes” that apply only to the franchises and employees and officers of their respective (and often different) corporations.

Throughout much of America, nobody is being paid to mind the store or provide enforcement of the Organic and Public Laws anymore. So, now does it make sense why you have no access to the guarantees of The Constitution and no enforcement for the indictments of Common Law Grand Juries?

To get action and enforcement you have to have a Common Law Sheriff operating the land jurisdiction of your county, and you also need an entire Common Law Court backing him up.

There are basically three possibilities—

1. Cause enough ruckus so your county votes to dissolve the “County” corporation and operate in its correct jurisdiction—- this is unlikely because they will want to cling to the “federal funding” — i.e., kick-backs from the fraud.

2. Convince the “Sheriff” of Your County as in “Sheriff of Jackson County” to also accept the duty of Jackson County Sheriff (the Sheriff on the Land position) and also enforce the Organic and Public Laws —- wear both the “incorporated” and the “unincorporated” hats. That has been done and it has been proven to be correct by the Mack/Printz v. USA case in the US Supreme Court. It used to be taken for granted that the Sheriff occupied both the private corporate “law enforcement” office and the Public Office, but nowadays they are too bedraggled and dumbed-down to know the difference, and since the incorporated “Counties” want a free wheel to plunder and do what they like, far too many “Sheriffs” have gone along and taken orders and failed to serve the Public Office or enforce the Organic and Public Law.

Sheriff Richard Mack and Joe Arpaio are examples of men who have honorably worn both hats.

3. Do an end-run around the incorporated County. Just write them off as foreign “code enforcers” who are there to police foreign corporations and Federal United States Citizens and make sure that is all they do, too. Meantime, marshal up the living people of your county via a Public Notice of a Public Meeting to form an unincorporated body politic—- a free association of landowners—- sign and witness your Declaration of Political Status reclaiming your birthright estate and political status established on the land jurisdiction of your native state— and begin educating people. Explain that our hired help— the “federal corporation” and its employees— defrauded us back in 1933 and that a second such corporation is now attempting to do the same thing. Explain that as a result of this chicanery their political status as been changed to that of a British Crown Subject and that the Public Offices their county is owed have all been converted to private corporate offices instead—- leaving the Public Offices vacated since 1976. As a result we have no real Sheriff operating the land jurisdiction of the County and enforcing the Organic and Public Laws— The Declaration of Independence, The Articles of Incorporation, The Constitution for the united States of America, The Northwest Ordinance, and United States Statutes-at-Large. They have to elect from among themselves a whole different slate of candidates to fill the actual Public Offices. Once those people are elected, bonded, and sworn in, your Sheriff will have a complete American Common Law Court to back him up and he will have the sweeping enforcement powers he is owed as the top peacekeeping officer of the land. He will be able to deputize as many men as he needs to enforce the Organic and Public Law— just like John Wayne in the old movies.

Deny the crooks jurisdiction over you, and destroy their power.

December 31st, 2015 by

http://www.paulstramer.net/2015/12/deny-crooks-jurisdiction-over-you-and.html?showComment=1451567012713#c6689684517931805263

12-21-2015 3-19-06 PM

By Anna Von Reitz

I get dozens and sometimes hundreds of letters, messages, emails, etc. from people wanting help with court problems– all in foreign courts that have no natural jurisdiction and no right to be here applying their “law” to our people. 

The Root Problem is that thanks to fraud and falsification of public records, our people have been registered as their people without anyone’s knowledge or consent. This self-interested fraud on the part of governmental services corporations needs to be recognized for what it is and forthrightly rebutted. 

Deny them jurisdiction over you and you deny them any ability to proceed — regardless of the issue be it foreclosure or child custody or driving without a license. 

You were born on the land of one of the American states.  You are by birthright “one of the free sovereign and independent people of the United States” and NOT an “inhabitant” — a British Crown Subject merely “residing” here.  Both these political statuses are clearly defined in The Definitive Treaty of Peace known as the Treaty of Paris 1783 ending the Revolutionary War, Article 3. 

But… Within hours of your birth you were defrauded of your birthright when your Mother was coerced into unknowingly registering your “birth” as a British Crown Subject instead of “one of the free sovereign and independent people of the United States”. 

This in turn creates the “presumption” that like all British Crown Subjects you are merely here to provide “essential governmental services” (Constitution of 1789, Article IV, Section 3, Clause 2) and are obligated to obey their corporate statutory “law”. 

And that is how and why they presume against you and tax you and carry out all their crimes against you. 

How do you rebut this? 

You identify yourself as the living man or woman appearing in the flesh, one of the free sovereign and independent people of the United States and not an inhabitant as defined by the Definitive Treaty of Peace 1783, one of those owed “essential governmental services” under Article IV, Section 3, Clause 2 of the 1789 Constitution, guaranteed your right of expatriation by the Expatriation Act of 1868, the retention of your native political status by the Geneva Convention Protocols of 1949, Laws of War, Volume II, Article 3, and the right of Self-Declaration guaranteed by the United Nations Universal Right of Self-Declaration. 

Then further inform the court that the essential government services you are owed do not include defrauding you, miss-administering your estate, or mischaracterizing you as an inhabitant of the District of Columbia or any “federal Territory” whatsoever. 

Then clearly state that you are the only one having any first hand knowledge of your nature, intentions, motivations, will or any other matter of fact concerning you and that every word dropping from you lips is to be understood by the court as a Matter of Fact and all else that anyone may say is only immaterial hearsay and presumption. 

Then proceed to ream them brand new paper bung holes about whatever it is they are bothering you about–

Taxes? 

You are exempt and any vessels in commerce operated in your name are tax pre-paid.  You are a Priority Creditor of the court, the banks and the corporations they employ, having the absolute right to offset any thing you may owe them against all that they already owe you and properly demanding the benefit of your exemption. 

Child custody? 

Your biological children are your creation, accepted and supported by you, belonging only to you, and are not entrusted to anyone or any thing else by you; and that is a Matter of Fact not subject to any fictitious claim or interpretation by the court. 

Foreclosure? 

You received no “loan” and retain all security interest provided contingent on the receipt of a loan; you require the return of the Promissory Note and Incomplete Mortgage Agreement paperwork. If anyone asks, reply that the Promissory Note is more than nine months old, the transaction was never completed, no loan was received by you and the whole process is void for fraud, including any presumption of a valid security interest.  Any check received from the bank was merely a transfer of your own credit and the bank cannot show any other source of funds for the transaction. 

Driving without a license? 

You were traveling for private purposes and who can say otherwise? 

You are stating Matters of Fact known to you on a firsthand basis. All else is hearsay and presumption. 

And to all the above and more you may add that the court’s presumption of jurisdiction over you and your property are in violation of both the Public Law and The Constitution and will not be respected as anything but attempted personage and fraud against one of their Priority Creditors and Benefactors. 

Get your backs up. Tell it like it is. Let the facts be plainly stated. Remember who you are and tell the “court” off.  Be polite– but ice cold and determined. What they are doing is a rude and unconscionable affront to you and a false claim being made against you and your property? Be appropriately outraged and hold your head high. Peer down at your miscreant employee sitting on that bench and demand to know who he thinks he is and what he thinks he is doing?

OLDDOGS COMMENTS!

 

I assume that sooner or later I will have a confrontation with what is euphemistically called law enforcement, and will most likely be murdered for lack of memory recall, as I have no intention of letting them arrest me. Most all of the uniformed tyrants would much rather kill someone rather than be humiliated back at the station for letting someone convince them they have no jurisdiction over me. Such as this is the real state of the union. Even if I could recall the exact words to use in my defense, can you imagine the average cop being intelligent enough to understand and accept he has been miss-informed for his entire life or a bailiff who refuses to obey a judge? Stay armed and capable everywhere you go. If the worst they can do is murder me, I consider that a gift because living under their tyranny is hell on earth.

If We Dont Change the Way Money Is Created and Distributed We Change Nothing

December 26th, 2015 by

http://www.washingtonsblog.com/2015/12/dont-change-way-money-created-distributed-change-nothing.html

By Charles Hugh Smith

Many well-intended people want to reform the status quo for all sorts of worthy reasons: to reduce wealth inequality, restore democracy, create good-paying jobs, and so on.
All these goals are laudable, but if we don’t change the way money is created and distributed, nothing really changes: wealth inequality will keep rising, governance will remain a bidding process of the wealthy, wages will continue stagnating, etc.

If the money creation/distribution system isn’t transformed, “reform” is nothing more than ineffectual policy tweaks that offer do-gooders the illusion of progress.

Mike Swanson of Wall Street Window and I discuss the The Future of Currencies and CHS’s New Book A Radically Beneficial World (33:21)

Few are willing to admit that the way we create and distribute money at the top of the wealth pyramid necessarily generates increasing wealth inequality because once we admit this, we realize 1) the money system itself is the source of inequality and 2) we have to change the money system if we want to stave off the inevitable rise of wealth inequality to the point that it generates social disorder.

In the current system, money is created by central and private banks at the top of the wealth/power pyramid, and distributed within the top of the wealth pyramid. The only possible output of this system is rising wealth inequality and debt-serfdom for three reasons:

1. Those with first access to nearly free money can outbid savers and serfs who must borrow at much higher rates of interest to snap up income-producing assets. In effect, borrowing unlimited sums at near-zero rates guarantees that those with this privilege have a built-in advantage in buying income-producing assets. The only possible output of this system is the rich get richer as they buy up all the most profitable and lowest-risk income-producing assets.

2. Those who can borrow virtually unlimited sums at less than 1% interest skim vast wealth by loaning the money out to everyone below the top of the pyramid at 4% (mortgages), 8% (other loans), and 18% (credit cards). This funnels much of the national income stream to those who can borrow cheap and lend the money at much higher rates.

3. Since the wealthy already own most of the income-producing assets, the easiest way to boost their wealth is to bid up those assets with cheaply borrowed money. For example, borrowing $100 million and using it for stock buybacks leverages the value of the shares by far more than $100 million.

Three different perspectives of the wealth pyramid illustrate how our money system generates wealth inequality as the only possible output of the system:

The system of central banks, private banks and fractional reserve lending is global. The net result is that globally, the vast majority of wealth is owned and controlled by those at the very apex of the wealth/power pyramid: the top 8% own 85% of global wealth.

12-26-2015 11-06-42 AMIn the U.S., the wealth-income pyramid can be represented by an inverted pyramid: the bulk of wealth and income are in the hands of the top 5%. The bottom 80% own an essentially trivial percentage of the national wealth.

12-26-2015 11-07-18 AMThis pyramid illustrates how the money creation and distribution pyramid works:

12-26-2015 11-09-07 AM

There are a number of proposed alternatives to this the rich can only get richer and the rest of us can only get poorer system. The only real solution in my view is to create and distribute money at the base of the pyramid, to those generating useful goods and services in the community economy, rather than to those in the top of the pyramid. This money isn’t borrowed into existence, so there is no interest to be skimmed by its creation.

I explain how this works in my new book A Radically Beneficial World: Automation, Technology and Creating Jobs for All.

Criminals On Our Shores — Banking, the Global Reset, A Sidebar Rumination!

December 22nd, 2015 by

http://annavonreitz.com/criminalsonourshores.pdf

12-21-2015 3-19-06 PM

For those just now waking up—- the Federal Reserve is not and has never been any part of our government.  It is a mostly-foreign private association of banks operating as a criminal cartel on our shores. The Fed was invited here by other criminals impersonating our lawful Congress of the United States more than a century ago.  The details of how this happened are presented in our sworn and published affidavit of probable cause, “You Know Something Is Wrong When….An American Affidavit of Probable Cause” and The Creature from Jekyll Island. 

Second, at the end of the Second World War the Allies set up the “Global Debt Facility” as a depository with the intention — at least on paper — of using this international collateral for the benefit of Mankind.  

So much for good intentions and public relations. Of course, much more sinister and self-interested agendas were in play—one of which was the rape and pillaging of America and the dispossession of its people via fraud, misrepresentation, and deceit.

Attached you will find nine (9) important documents that establish at least one (1) of the several versions of the Minesfield Crossover Agreements alleged to exist and referenced by Ms. Hudes, and also a couple pages from the Secret Book of Redemption.   This extraordinary work explains how the Federal Reserve self-sabotaged its fiduciary responsibilities by introducing deliberate errors in the issuance of bonds and other documents so as to provide a predetermined excuse for not paying legitimate debts when they came due. 

The Federal Reserve has also been instrumental in the Federal Reserve Note Scam and the enslavement of Americans mischaracterized as British Crown subjects.  

A “Federal Reserve Note” like any “note” is a Promise to Pay—-like a bond is also a promise to pay at a later date.  This particular “note” was given a very special, very beneficial backing— members of Congress acting in treasonous self-interest established a fixed “dollar for dollar” exchange rate between the “Federal Reserve Note” and our actual United States Dollar. 

As a result, the Federal Reserve Banks were enabled to pawn off paper I.O.U.s in exchange for our actual gold and silver—-and also for our unpaid labor and other resources.   

To avoid paying these I.O.U.s  they simply collapsed the old “Federal Reserve System, Inc.” and entered it into bankruptcy.  All our gold and silver was stolen and transported overseas in “equitable exchange” for worthless paper, and then even the debt represented by those I.O.U.s was discharged in bankruptcy—which should have never been allowed.  

That answers the question of where all the gold in Fort Knox went.  

Bill Clinton had the last of our reserves shipped out during his final years in office.  He also pretended to have the authority to sell off our homes, businesses, roads, bridges, and other public infrastructure to foreign investors.  Literally billions of people globally plus 390 million Americans have been victimized and defrauded. Governments all over the world are looking to us to make good on all the private Federal Reserve Notes and all the bogus sales of our property that these con men pretending to represent us have sold to investors in our names.  Literally.  

That is who and what the Federal Reserve is—- an international crime syndicate brought here and allowed to run rampant by the British Monarch who is supposed to be our Trustee on the Highs Seas and Inland Waterways, expedited by our own employees and by other people obligated to serve us in Good Faith by every treaty, Constitution, Public Law and trust obligation there is.

The primary beneficiaries of all this criminality are in order of importance:  the Pope, the Queen, Jacob Rothschild, and several corporations including SERCO.  

The Pope agreed to forgive all “debts” arising from these false claims and agreed to return all American assets to the Americans they belong to. He has also taken other very important steps toward remedy. 

The Queen is not eager to give up her ill-gotten gains and neither is Jacob Rothschild, who is still smirking and bobbing, confident that he and his criminal empire will escape the wrath of the world’s people and trick them yet again.    

There’s only one big stumbling block. They can pay off any country on Earth except one. They can’t possibly pay back the Americans, who have been the biggest victims.  

It simply can’t be done. 

There isn’t enough gold or silver to pay back what they owe us already.  

That’s why from their perspective, they have to do one of two things—- (1) work a final fraud scheme to gain immunity from prosecution and release from their debt to us; or, (2) kill off the Americans to reduce the amount of debt they owe and collect on the million dollar life insurance policies they’ve placed on each one of us. WW3 anyone?

But now they have just realized something rather crucial.  

As long as there is one American left alive anywhere on the planet, that American can claim back absolutely everything owed to all Americans since this fraud scheme began— and tracking down and murdering every American worldwide doesn’t seem like a viable option.   

They have always counted on their control of the “US Congress” as their final playing card.  They haven’t counted on us pointing out that the “US Congress” isn’t our Congress. 

Karen Hudes thought she had everything nicely done up in time for Christmas.  She had cronies all lined up to accept our share of the gold from the Global Debt Facility.  Once they accepted the gold— “in our behalf”—and accepted all the immunities and guarantees and releases hidden in the fine print, her bosses would be off the hook, free and clear, able to claim immunity and keep all our assets, too.    

Luckily for the “free sovereign and independent people of the United States” the federal toadies don’t represent us in this matter and have no basis to claim that they do. 

As a Trustee, Karen Hudes and the other 188 Trustees of the Global Debt Facility are in a bind. The Americans are owed their share of the gold in the Global Debt Facility.  The Federal toadies have no basis to accept it for us.  It isn’t in our interest to accept any fine print that gives the Queen and Rothschild and their cronies a “Home Free and Keep Our Assets” card. 

And we are in no mood for Trojan Horses.

Those who have been listening to the exchanges between Karen Hudes and I have repeatedly heard her warnings about “World War III” — any such thing would be precipitated by the efforts of the criminals to assert false claims against us and our assets and their refusal to pay their own debts.  

By now the entire world knows that the Americans have been the innocent victims of fiduciary trust fraud on an unimaginable scale, and millions of Americans know it, too.  The Russians and Chinese know who to blame.  If the Russians and Chinese want gold, they aren’t coming after us. Our pockets have been picked clean. Nobody is going to blame us for the lies of the Federal United States.  It’s all too apparent who the criminals have been and it is also too apparent that the American people have suffered along with the rest of the world. 

Ms. Hudes would have the world believe that I am working for some Evil Network of Global Control and am single-handedly holding up the Global Reset and preventing poor people all over the world from receiving their fair share of the Global Debt Facility gold.  I say that Ms. Hudes is accusing me of what she is doing herself.  She is trying to gain immunity for her bosses—some way that they can wash their hands and avoid being responsible for their insurmountable debts to us and the rest of humanity.  It is their refusal to come clean that is holding up distribution of Global Debt Facility assets. 

They, not we, are keeping the gold hostage, trying to use it as leverage for themselves, and trying to trick us all into accepting a bowl of porridge for our birthright. 

Under their current plan the same corrupt politicians retain control and all the benefit of the gold goes to prop up national currencies which are nothing but a breeding ground for manipulation, fraud, and profit for the usual suspects.   

The only benefit to the people Ms. Hudes can suggest is that they will no longer have to pay interest to the banks on the money their governments mint or print. It will mean the end of usury she says. 

Pray tell, why should anyone have to pay interest to the banks in the first place? 

Nobody’s currency has been backed by the banks.  It has all been backed by the labor of the people and the value of their country’s land, commodity, and product assets. The interest we’ve all paid to the Federal Reserve –for example– was nothing but another gratuitous fraud scheme, a charge for a non-existent service. 

So we just mindlessly donate the gold from the Global Debt Facility to the same criminals who have enslaved and defrauded us and in exchange we get what?  The cessation of yet another fraudulent claim?

How does that benefit any poor people?  Instead, it benefits the banks.  They realize that we are looking at them and questioning their existence and examining their records and their operations and it is just a matter of time before someone says, “Why are we paying interest for a non-existent service?”

Another recurring theme in the dialogue is that I and by implication, “the Americans”, are being selfish and unreasonable, and that’s why everything is held up.  The inference is that I am keeping all this gold from benefiting the poor people of the world and standing in the way of President Marco’s Prayer— but the poor people aren’t slated to get any benefit anyway.  The banks are just colluding to pay the banks again and making sure that everyone has new poker chips to play in another round of  “Global Economy” still completely controlled and manipulated by the same Corrupt Old Bastards Club that brought us to this end. 

How about a totally different result?  Something that actually helps all the people of the world and permanently solves the problem of idolatry and dishonesty being enshrined at the heart of our economic system?

To the extent that we need a planetary-wide currency system to facilitate trade, this can be accomplished by a simple numeric accounting system.  No banks are required. None at all. Just a user friendly accounting system similar to an ATM that accepts deposits, transfers, and withdrawals, a multi-tier computer system similar to the internet devoted to financial transactions, and geeks to troubleshoot. 

To the extent that we need to provide for the basic needs of all people this can be accomplished by the same numeric system by providing basic living stipends sufficient to pay for food, water, housing, sanitation, transportation, education, and health care deposited into each individual account. Mankind can finally be set free from want and fear of want. No more starving children.  No more charity drives. No more slavery. No more anxiety. No more reason for war and conflict. 

Why is this possible?  Because money is a symbol standing for the value of our labor and the Earth’s natural resources that we are all heir to. Labor–which includes our creativity and inventiveness–and natural resources, are the only sources of wealth on this planet. There is already more than enough value vested in our energy and the Earth’s resources to back every possible legitimate need anyone could ever have. There has never been any reason for people to suffer and go without basic needs. 

To the extent that we need to provide for new investments, this can be accomplished by giving everyone their own investment account with an additional amount credited to it each year—and let people loan their investment money without interest to any worthy lawful endeavor they support. 

We know that this is a difficult concept for people who have been trained to “work for money” to grasp, but money is an arbitrary product whether it is made from gold or plastic or glass, whether it is in the form of a coin or an accounting ledger.  In the past we’ve made money of different kinds and let these compete like different varieties of chocolate bars— the Dollar versus the Ruble versus the Yen— it is time to move beyond that.  

People have been wrongly taught to put their faith in money and its external forms, to idolize it as a false god, when in fact, in an honest monetary system, its a hum-drum daily tool. 

Those who control the production of money and who determine its accounting are all —-as the present circumstance proves and as 8000 years of history provides—- universally and inexorably corrupted by it and reduced to being dishonest profit-mongering white collar thieves. 

Has the lesson been learned yet?   Have we all suffered long enough?  Senselessly enough?  Is it time to do away with banking— and go to an Open Account System?  

There is no reason for any child growing up in any place on this planet to go without food, water, shelter, and anything else that they need.  Nor is there any reason for any retiree to go without a solid level of security, comfort, and enjoyment in their old age.  The senseless greed of small-minded and smaller-hearted men has perpetuated the Myth of Scarcity in the midst of plenty–and it is nothing but a self-serving blasphemy against Nature and God.  

There is also no reason for our money to be outside our local control. No reason for gleaming bank towers overwhelming the skylines of our cities.  No reason for the Christine LaGardes of this world waving their hands and blankly discussing how they are going to seize the retirement accounts of senior citizens.  No reason for Paul Ryan mindlessly grinning like a Halloween pumpkin as he discusses all the “necessary cuts” to Medicare and other services that people have already paid for umpteen times over. There is no “National Debt”.   It’s all hokum, Smoke and mirrors promoted by thieves.  We have only believed in “money” because we have been kept ignorant and deprived of this critical tool by force, and we now fully realize that this Ultimate Fraud has been served to us at the hands of vicious self-serving criminals who profit by it. 

There must be a great cleansing of our minds and our hearts, a sucking in of new vision like a rush of air to our lungs.  Any hope that the bankers and politicians have had that this would be business as usual —just a wrap up song and dance to finalize the Greatest Fraud in History— will be sadly disappointed. The Americans are awake— fully awake.  The doors have been opened that no man can shut. 

We are going to demand our share of the Global Debt Facility gold free and clear of any strings.   We are going to liquidate the corporations that have acted as crime syndicates on our shores.  We are going to lead a profound and permanent reform of the world monetary system. We will be cleaning out vacated public offices from sea to shining sea. We will be reforming and replacing the courts. We will be amending and updating The Constitution and putting an end to any outdated and prejudicial association with Great Britain allowing it to meddle in our affairs. If we get any offer of violence whatsoever from those responsible for these crimes committed against us and the other innocent people of the world, we will join with the Chinese and the Russians and everyone else who has been defrauded by these thugs and we will make sure that the promoters of these crimes never have the opportunity to harm anyone again. 

Let that be a promise heard round the world and especially in Washington, DC.  

Documents mentioned will be added to this article later tonight.

Notice to Congress The Days of Legalizing Theft Are Over

December 16th, 2015 by

http://annavonreitz.com

By Judge Anna

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

Guam, Puerto Rico, etc., or (3) operating as a plenary oligarchy ruling the Washington DC Municipal Government.

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

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

The “federal” States that were created by the 14th Amendment of their private for-profit corporation’s look-alike, sound-alike “constitution” published as the “Constitution of the United States of America” are not the same as the actual States of the Union, nor are their “State” citizens the same as American State Citizens, nor are their “US citizens” the same as Citizens of the united States, but they pretended that they were and the banks gleefully agreed.

To secure the debt owed by the “United States of America, Inc.” the banks established maritime salvage liens against every parcel of land, every business, every man, woman, and child in America, and continued to operate their doppelganger corporation under Chapter 11 Reorganization. They laid claim to your “good faith and credit” —stole your credit cards— and your identity as an American State Citizen, and they never bothered to tell the victim.

They also had you declared legally dead and probated your estate and issued bonds based on the value of your labor and private property. Just look at “your” Birth Certificate—signed by the County Registrar, an officer of the probate court, issued in the NAME of a “dead person”—you, numbered as a bond and issued on bond paper. At the same time, they converted all your private bank accounts to the ownership of the ESTATE trust they created “in your name” and moved the ESTATE offshore to Puerto Rico where you and your assets supposedly came under the foreign

maritime jurisdiction of the United States of America (Minor). Look at the NAME on “your” bank account checks.

Look at the signature line under a high powered magnifier. The IMF claims that it owns all your bank accounts. It claims that your ESTATE was “abandoned”, and now all the spoils belong to the bank. They are pressing “Congress”to pass “laws” to allow them to seize all American bank accounts—your savings, your retirement accounts, your checking accounts, everything. We’ve seen Dodd-Frank. Now we are seeing “bail-in” proposals. The Big Banks want “Congress” to front for their greed and criminality—again.

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

Meanwhile, the market for financial services will open up for banks operated under actual state charters.

This thing you have thought of as your government is nothing but a multi-national conglomerate run criminally amok.

The real government of this country is vested in each of you. You all hold more civil authority on the land than the entire federal government. Deal with the “FEDERAL RESERVE” and “IMF” and “CONGRESS” the same way you would deal with “TARGET” or “WALMART” or “ARBY’S” if they grossly endangered, cheated, enslaved, and defrauded you. Keep calm and get even. You all know what to do.

You have the guaranteed Universal Right of Self-Declaration provided by United Nations Conventions, plus the protections of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. You have the Geneva Conventions and the Lieber Code.

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

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

The Wealth Waters that flow to all corners of the Globe.

CAFR –

By Walter Burien

11-14-2015 10-09-24 AM

Here is a VERY important point for you and everyone else in your community per any tax increase proposed by your local government(s). The new accounting changes for all government operations over the last few years is designed to make the operation “look” cash poor by requiring them to have funding for their “liabilities” up to 35-years out. (parking zone for the cash)

Now that might up front look like a prudent thing to do BUT, what they do is project their liabilities out 35-years cross-matched with their income of 1-year out. ** If you, I, or Bill Gates did the same thing we all would look like we are on death’s financial door.

They are moving on a tax increase not because they are short on cash today, they are doing it because they are pulling income and standing balances off their operating funds into “advanced liability accounts” creating the shortfall on their operating budget to justify the increase.

What is “ESSENTIAL” for you and all others in any local government venue to do is: Based on their “gross income, not net” last year (and go five years back) and then project their income based on projecting out 35-years to cross match with what they say their liabilities are…!

If that was done I have a feeling that viewing projected income 35-years out without ANY tax increase, they would be in the black by a BIG margin and NOT short of funds.

All local governments across the land are saying they are short of funds today because they are doing the same thing of projecting out liabilities 35-years cross-matched with projections of income out 1-year. So the same applies for every City, County, School District, University, Enterprise Operation across the land…

Detroit in declaring bankruptcy did the same thing right under the local public’s and nations view by promoting the liabilities out (one side of the coin) 35-years and not the income (the other side of the coin) for the same and got away with it. Detroit was sitting on 18-billion in liquid investment assets at the time when they did this. But they said their liabilities were 27-billion (projected out 35-years) claiming to be 9-billion short today…

Please share this communication with other activists in your state and ask them to do the same.. Want to light a big fire under the corruption? Then make sure everyone Statewide sees this detailed outline communication As Soon As Possible. (A.S.A.P)

Here is another tip for you per population control that I learned the hard way over an over again.

Government on all levels will go far out of their way to monitor every one. They specifically want to keep a handle on their opposition. Let’s call government on all levels the Fox.

For the Fox to control all opposition, the Fox will covertly start operations (the names I made up) such as: “Taxpayers for Fair Government”, “The News Site that publishes everything government does not want you to know”, “National Militia for the Abolishment of Government”, “Destroy government corruption, and restore people’s rights”, “Legal Fund for the indictment of corrupt judges”, “Town of X Breakfast Club to Restore Taxpayer/Property owner/Citizens Rights”

The Fox now can watch and draw in most of their opposition to identify them, here their strategy is to; see what is coming out that may be a threat to the Fox, this all being done so the Fox can stay 5-steps ahead of their opposition for corrective action to be taken by the Fox. Additionally, it allows the Fox to school all in a direction or with so called damning information or actions that in reality are fictional having no impact on the Fox what-so-ever but expels the energy and resources of the individual participants.

Tens of millions of people are sucked into these types of intentionally laid out Fox Flypaper operations. Additionally, if there is a truly independent group to the Fox that grows into several hundred thousand + members that “actually are a threat to the Fox, the Fox will go out of its way to take the group over from the inside or if the Fox can, cause financial duress on the group and buy it out for take-over. This is done especially with independent publications or news media groups.

You would be amazed to find out how few “genuine” independent groups there are left out there. Anything involved or tied in with the syndicated media, forget about it.

EXAMPLE: For 15-years tens of thousands of people tried to get their local syndicated media outlet or national outlet to simply mention the CAFR to their listeners or viewers. No one was successful per the mass viewed syndicated TV News outlets excluding myself back in 1995. The anchor from ABC News out of Phoenix. On the 10 PM nightly News she showed a full camera shot of the AZ 1994 State CAFR and made comment. ( I told her in advance she could not mention it to her producer or he would cut mention ) Well, the 10 PM News usually airs verbatim at 7 AM the following morning. The following morning her segment mention of the CAFR was cut out and she was pulled from that day forward as being the Anchor.

Since 1998, only the independent news outlets did front page feature stories on the CAFR. The ones with the biggest circulation to the public were then targeted by the Fox and were shut down, bought out, or even worse for the smaller ones, the editor / owner died unexpectedly.

The population is masterfully “entertained” off into La-La land by the Fox within an annual repetitious “loop” created that gives the imprecision of advancement, but in “reality” maintains the population in a very controllable and in an exact spoon-fed programmed mindset as the Fox takes over everything.

I put up an article about California’s largest “Taxpayer Association” the Howard Jarvis Group. It can be viewed it by clicking the link towards the top of my home page having the subject line of: “To any remaining California members of the Howard Jarvis Taxpayer Association” it is a falsely “Destroy the Messenger” example to avoid the issue: http://CAFR1.com/HJTA.html

You may also want to read my BIO in which I mention some of those “independent” news groups and what happened to them when they featured CAFR disclosure. http://CAFR1.com/BIO.html

The Fox is now controlling and operating within a 10-trillion dollar + a year collective take-over machine that has amassed somewhere between 140 to 170 trillion dollars of liquid investment assets held both domestic and internationally. At the same time 95% to 98% of the populace is being maintained clueless by the Fox and its cooperatives about this reality DUE TO THE MONEY / CONTROL INVOLVED.

** You may want to take a look at the example CAFR listing I put up a few months ago. 4500 CAFRs categorized. (long page). Then you yourself can bypass the void intentionally created by the Fox and share that page with many. http://CAFR1.com/listings/Listings.html

That should give many a big wake-up call as to the scope and size of it all. Also it will qualify the aspect of not a peep or mention by the Fox or its cooperatives for 70-years of their Holy Grail of over-all accounting, the CAFR.

Please share / publish this communication with all that you know.

I continue to work diligently on bringing forth the TRFA (Tax Retirement Fund Association)

An organization that will and can transition every local government to operate on the “Fiduciary Trust” principle to meet its operating budgets “without” taxation of any kind. One income source for the Fox, taxation is replaced with another source of income, Fiduciary Trust return. It is there to happen and I am working on it! A treat for everyone else!

Also, with this being done, the Fox and our economy “in all reality” does better too..

“Please, please, please understand and share the following:

If you were married to a Super Model who was gorgeous, and everyone kept telling you she (or he) was fat and ugly, after a while would you doubt yourself to think that she (or he) is fat and ugly?

Per that debt constantly promoted to us all, the following three points apply:

Enron promoted their profit and hid their debt. Government does the exact opposite: they promote debt and hide profit.
With the changes in government accounting over the last 15 years, now they project out “liabilities” 35 years cross-matched with 1 year of income. If Bill Gates, you, or I did the same, we all would look like we are on death’s financial door.
Government back during the 70’s, 80’s, and 90’s had so much cash coming in the door they did not know what to do with it all. So, the scheme went into effect of promoting debt, and then funding that debt with their own cash: turning cash into debt as an investment for them, and as a “parking zone” for that cash. Well, today if you start cross-matching that local and federal government debt with the investor of that debt, after connecting the dots, you will find that 65% + of that debt is “self-funded” or cross-matched with other local or federal investment funds. You may have the county funding the city debt, and the same city funding the county debt. The enterprise operation owned by the city may be funding the city debt, a local government may have 500 million invested with a bank, brokerage, or insurance company, and that institution is now funding 500 million of that same local government’s debt. A state may have massive investment capital in China, and now the same state will have the investment manager of their account in China fund the state’s new bond issue which makes the funding “look” like it is coming from China, and so on, and so on, and so on.

The public was played as useful idiots per this scheme with the one side of the coin promoted of the debt. The public is now convinced that their gorgeous model spouse is fat and ugly, when in fact she or he is just as gorgeous as ever and even more so. If government debt was cross-matched with government investments, and then offset against each other, you may just have 80% of that “government debt” evaporate with the stroke of a pen. Please don’t get caught into promoting the useful idiot line of government debt…

Please share my comments with anyone you know who is currently “promoting” the one-sided view of the coin per government debt, and share with whomever else you think needs to know the points brought forward above.

NOTE:

GASB.org (Government Accounting Standards Board) determines accounting changes for the CAFR and AFR accounting for government. FASB.org has a hand in it also.

When they make a change in accounting standards they do it by sending out a “Transmittal Letter” to all under the title of “Statement No. XX”

When I broke the ice in 1998 nationally and many started to look, they issued Statement No. 32 starting the changes in the CAFR accounting. I think they are up to Statement 170 now. Go to GASB and ask where to view online or where to get a copy of the Statements starting with 32 up to the current last statement put out by them.

The key points from 1998 forward were:

1. They changed from a showing of gross to a showing of net.

2. Then they shifted in that the local governments had to account for all future liabilities and do so “at the present” over actuarial projections to meet liabilities over time. That was the big mod that brings forward the comments in my article.

3. One small change they did back in the early 2000’s was to change in the statistical section the showing of “Top 10 Employers” in the state. Well, when I brought to the public’s attention that in most state CAFRs the Top 10 employers was government itself (AZ was 8 out of the 10) they changed to: The Top 10 “private” Employers in the state. That allowed for the exclusion of government. The impact that required the change was when the public caught government was the top majority employer in the state, the up front reaction was: “What, are we Russia?

Get those Statements and see the progression of changes to see how they pulled it off on the things they are doing today. I not that they always say: We are just following GAP standards. (Generally Accepted Accounting Procedures). What they forget to mention is those GAP standards they created themselves through the private associations they created to network with each other as a whole. Also that GAP they refer to is for exclusively Government. Private sector accounting is for the private sector and government accounting is for government.. If a Fortune 500 company were to use Government GAP accounting, they would be indicted by the SEC (attempting to hide assets via non-disclosure to its shareholders through the “projected” liability scam)

Yes. The U.S. government Really Is Bankrupt Here’s Proof…

October 28th, 2015 by

http://www.alt-market.com/articles/2719-yes-the-us-government-really-is-bankrupt-heres-proof

10-28-2015 8-45-06 AM

This article was written by Simon Black originally publishes at Sovereign Man

I’ve long-stated that the government of the United States is completely insolvent.
And that is 100% true statement.

The government’s own numbers show that official liabilities, including debt held by the public and federal retirement benefits, total $20.7 trillion.

Yet the government’s assets, including the value of the entire federal highway system, the national parks, cash balances, etc. totals just over $3 trillion.

In total, their ‘net worth’ is NEGATIVE $17.7 TRILLION… a level that completely dwarfs the housing crisis.
If you include the government’s own estimates of the Social Security shortfall, this number declines to NEGATIVE $60 TRILLION.
And it gets worse every year.

Now, is this balance sheet an accurate reflection of reality? Do we really trust the bean counters to tell us what the United States of America is really worth?

Surely there must be significant intrinsic value to the United States military, for example.
Or the US government’s ability to collect taxes.
Or what about the value of all the natural resources underground?
These must all be HUGELY positive and would swing the government’s net worth back in the right direction.
Guess again.

The US military is certainly one of the best-trained and most effective forces in history.
But it’s difficult to place a substantial value on it when the government can no longer afford to use it.
And even when they do use it, the overall cost of doing so is negative.

The wars in Iraq and Afghanistan have cost the taxpayers $4 trillion. But where’s the financial benefit?
Aside from a few defense contractors profiting handsomely, the Chinese got most of the oil.
ISIS ended up with much of Iraq. And Iran made out like a bandit, with the US government taking out its most threatening neighbors free of charge.
Mission accomplished.

Bottom line, even the best asset in the world can end up being a big liability if it’s used improperly.
So what about the tax authority of the US government? If Uncle Sam can collect $3 trillion in tax revenue each year, surely that must count as a huge asset.
And it absolutely is. If you conduct a Present Value calculation of the future tax revenue of the US government discounted by the official 2% rate of inflation, the US government’s ability to tax its citizens is ‘worth’ $150 TRILLION.
But… if you’re going to count the government’s tax authority as an asset, you have to be intellectually honest and consider the expenses as liabilities.

Think about it: yes, the government brings in tax revenue every single year. But for nearly every year over the last seventy years, they’ve spent far more money to deliver on the promises they’ve made to their citizens.
Those promises are liabilities. And given the government’s spending history since the end of World War II, the liabilities far exceed the tax authority asset.

More importantly, though, isn’t it a little bit scary to consider that the government’s #1 asset is its ability to steal money from you?
Or that the only way the government can make its liabilities go away is by defaulting on the promises it has made to its citizens?
That’s their only way out: steal from you, and default on you.

Madness Coming To Gold Market: “There Are Thirty to Fifty Owners For Each Ounce of Gold That’s Out There”

March 28th, 2015 by

http://www.activistpost.com/2015/03/madness-coming-to-gold-market-there-are.html

10-26-2014 6-21-28 PM

Mac Slavo
Activist Post

Though the price of gold has seen a significant drop over the last two years from its alltime highs of about $1900 per ounce, many experts and analysts believe that Western central banks and their colleagues at major financial institutions have been manipulating the price.

The rampant manipulation is believed to stem, in part, from the formerly Rothschild-owned London Gold Fix, an organization made up of five large banks that make a daily determination of what the price of gold should be.

It is this unilateral control by Western banks that recently prompted the Chinese to create their own Shanghai Gold Exchange. What separates the two is that the Chinese will be using their currency, the Yuan, as the reserve rather than the U.S. Dollar. Moreover, unlike their European counterparts, the Chinese will be trading in actual physical dollars.

The Daily Coin explains:

The product is gold. When gold is bought or sold [on the Shanghai Gold Exchange] a person actually takes delivery of the gold.

That is not the case in London. In London the price is based two factors:  1) the “futures” market in New York. This is where people buy a contract for future gold. Gold that may or may not exist today but they are willing to purchase today and take “delivery” in the future. 2) The other factor is a very small group of banksters sitting around and determining what the price should be. You know, good-ole-boys club.

 

It is this process by central banks in the West that will ultimately lead to the destruction of the paper gold market as it exists today.

The banks operating in these paper markets do so with gold that they don’t own. They trade in paper receipts. The reason that’s a problem is that there are anywhere from thirty to fifty “owners” for every ounce of gold out there.

Craig Hemke of the TF Metals Report discusses the Western gold scheme in a recent interview withThe Daily Coin and says that when the music finally stops there are going to be a lot of people who think they own a certain amount of gold but all they’ll really be holding is a worthless paper ticket:

There’s a lot of central bank gold…and even privately held gold… that has been leased through these bullion banks. These bullion, they say ‘we’ll pay you one percent because your gold is just sitting there collecting dust but we’ll pay you interest if you lease it to us.’

And then they go and they dump it, they move it physically in the market in the hopes that they’ll be able to, when that lease comes due, they’ll get the gold back and then repay it back to whoever loaned it to them in the first place. And they try to match all those up.

And the hole that they’re digging just keeps getting deeper and deeper.

There was news last week that now after about a year and a half after Venezuela repatriated their 80 or 90 tons of gold that now Goldman Sachs and Credit Suisse are down there trying to talk them into leasing it back out. Boy, they’d be crazy if they did.
That’s all part of the process.

‘Hey, give us that and we promise we’ll give it back to you a year or two from now, no problem at all… we can manage this’

[…]

You know, the first rule when you’re in a hole is to stop digging. Right? That’s not what they’re doing. They’re digging away frantically trying to maintain the status quo.

I firmly believe there are multiple… thirty maybe fifty beneficial owners for each ounce of gold that’s out there… Thirty or fifty folks that think they own that ounce and they’re all going to show up when the music stops thinking that they’re going to take delivery or lay claim to that ounce.

And that’s when the madness really starts.

When will that be? Probably not tomorrow. But as any confidence scheme eventually unravels, and this one will unravel too. It’s just a matter of time.

The problem is easy to see. Should just two people show up claiming the same ounce of gold one of them is coming home empty handed. What Craig Hemke describes is a scenario where as many as fifty different people are going to claim ownership for the same ounce of gold. The same is likely true for the silver market.

And now that the Chinese are dealing directly with physical gold it is only a matter of time before the entire scheme collapses. In fact, the Chinese and Russians know it’s coming and that’s why they’ve been furiously purchasing gold on the open market.

The solution should be obvious: If you invest in gold make sure you hold the physical asset in your hand.

FINANCIAL REPRESSION TIMELINE – NEAR TERM

February 25th, 2015 by

A Joint Initiative of GordonTLong.com and CliffKule.com

CURRENT FINANCIAL REPRESSION INITIATIVES

 

(MONEY MARKET FUND GATES (SEC REGULATIONS)

  • **FRA POST: Central-Planners Herd Money Market Funds Into Government Financing
  • **FRA POST: Fund managers now have the Legal Right to ‘suspend redemptions’ by the you on your Money Market Funds
  • “Redemption Gates” for Money Market Funds Acting Man —“The adoption of ‘redemption gates’ effectively means that money market fund boards will be able to suspend the property rights of their customers. Once again, this creates a big disadvantage for the money market fund industry in favor of banks, since demand deposits will continue to lack such ‘redemption gates’, in spite of the fact that banks are de facto unable to actually pay out all demand deposits, or even a large portion of them, ‘on demand’. It is an interesting detail that retail customers are to be exempt from this regulation based on the idea that they are basically too addled to react to crisis conditions. Why are such regulations held to be required at all? Are regulators implying that the system has not been ‘made safe’ by adopting several telephone book-sized tomes of additional regulations?”
  • SEC Votes Through Money Market Exit Gates Zero Hedge — the SEC has adopted the news rules designed to curb the risk of money market investor runs .. “Among the changes, funds will have to switch to a floating share price instead of the current $1/share (hence the term breaking the buck). But the key part: ‘The SEC’s rule will require prime money market funds to move from a stable $1 per share net asset value, to a floating NAV. It also will let fund boards lower redemption ‘gates’ and fees in times of market stress.” .. suggests this may send money market investor rushing out & into other asset classes – the SEC, the Federal Reserve & the U.S. Treasury hope that asset class is stocks to keep the stock market rising .. “Clearly, everyone understand that the only purpose behind implementing ‘gates’ is to redirect the herd. And with some $2.6 trillion in assets, money markets can serve as a convenient source of ‘forced buying’ now that QE is tapering if only for the time being. The only question is whether the herd will agree to this latest massive behavioral experiment by the Fed, and allocate their funds to a stock market which is now trading at a higher P/E multiple than during the last market peak.”
  • ALERT: Pull Your Money From Money Markets Now! Economic Policy Journal
  • U.S. SEC poised to adopt reforms for money market funds Reuters
  • Fund managers on alert over money market shake-up FT –The SEC is looking to drive money market funds to only government securities, especially institutional money market funds – this means money market funds will be helping to pay for the government debt ..  The SEC is also planning to allow fees and restrictions on redemptions in times of stress, but it is not clear how widely these will be applied across the money markets – FT: “Any restrictions on redemptions may not be severe at first, but the regulations will only become more restrictive over time. Don’t waste time thinking you are going to monitor the situation and get out later. Get out now, when the getting is easy.”

BAIL-IN (GLOBAL – G20 LEGISLATION)

  • Australia: ‘Bail in’ Rules May Be Inevitable In Australia – August 22, 2014 Bail in’ rules may be inevitable, says David Murray of the Financial Systems Inquiry Chair in Australia .. “It appears there’s a wide consensus that bail-in would considerably expand the buffer, would further assist in the mechanisms for the protection of depositors, and importantly would create a system where it is less likely that the government would be dragged into a crisis.” .. Australia may have little choice but to adopt “bail-in” rules that expose bank creditors to losses, due to our dependence on foreign capital .. more financial repression.
  • Canada: Department Of Finance Releases Proposal For Canadian Bail-In Regime Canada’s government is looking to implement a bail-in regime to limit exposure to a government bailout – the idea is for troubled banks to shaft bank depositors of their bank deposits first .. “The G-20, including Canada, endorsed the Financial Stability Board’s Key Attributes of Effective Resolution Regimes for Financial Institutions in 2011, a set of best practices for the resolution of financial institutions which contemplates the establishment of a bail-in regime.”

PENSION CONTROLS

**FRA POST: Federal Reserve & Congress Talk “ENHANCED PRUDENTIAL STANDARDS”

CAPITAL CONTROLS (CASEY RESEARCH ON COMING CAPITAL CONTROLS)

**FRA POST: Indebted Governments Will Resort To Capital Controls

.

1: IMF Endorses Capital Controls

Bloomberg reported in December 2012 that the “IMF has endorsed the use of capital controls in certain circumstances.“ This is particularly important because the IMF, arguably an even more prominent institution since the global financial crisis started, has always had an official stance against capital controls. “In a reversal of its historic support for unrestricted flows of money across borders, the IMF said controls can be useful…” Will individual governments jump on this bandwagon? “It will be tacitly endorsed by a lot of central banks,”says Boston University professor Kevin Gallagher. If so, it could be more than just your home government that will clamp down on storing assets elsewhere.

2: There Is Academic Support for Capital Controls

Many mainstream economists support capital controls. For example, famed Harvard Economists Carmen Reinhart and Ken Rogoff wrote the following earlier this year:

Governments should consider taking a more eclectic range of economic measures than have been the norm over the past generation or two. The policies put in place so far, such as budgetary austerity, are little match for the size of the problem, and may make things worse. Instead, governments should take stronger action, much as rich economies did in past crises.

Aside from the dangerously foolish idea that reining in excessive government spending is a bad thing, Reinhart and Rogoff are saying that even more massive government intervention should be pursued. This opens the door to all kinds of dubious actions on the part of politicians, including—to my point today—capital controls.

“Ms. Reinhart and Mr. Rogoff suggest debt write-downs and ‘financial repression’, meaning the use of a combination of moderate inflation and constraints on the flow of capital to reduce debt burdens.” The Reinhart and Rogoff report basically signals to politicians that it’s not only acceptable but desirable to reduce their debts by restricting the flow of capital across borders. Such action would keep funds locked inside countries where said politicians can plunder them as they see fit.

3: Confiscation of Savings on the Rise

“So, what’s the big deal?” Some might think. “I live here, work here, shop here, spend here, and invest here. I don’t really need funds outside my country anyway!” Well, it’s self-evident that putting all of one’s eggs in any single basket, no matter how safe and sound that basket may seem, is risky—extremely risky in today’s financial climate. In addition, when it comes to capital controls, storing a little gold outside one’s home jurisdiction can help avoid one major calamity, a danger that is growing virtually everywhere in the world: the outright confiscation of people’s savings.

The IMF, in a report entitled “Taxing Times,” published in October of 2013, on page 49, states: “The sharp deterioration of the public finances in many countries has revived interest in a capital levy—a one-off tax on private wealth—as an exceptional measure to restore debt sustainability.”

The problem is debt. And now countries with higher debt levels are seeking to justify a tax on the wealth of private citizens. So, to skeptics regarding the value of international diversification, I would ask: Does the country you live in have a lot of debt? Is it unsustainable? If debt levels are dangerously high, the IMF says your politicians could repay it by taking some of your wealth.

The following quote sent shivers down my spine…

The appeal is that such a task, if implemented before avoidance is possible and there is a belief that is will never be repeated, does not distort behavior, and may be seen by some as fair. The conditions for success are strong, but also need to be weighed against the risks of the alternatives, which include repudiating public debt or inflating it away.

The IMF has made it clear that invoking a levy on your assets would have to be done before you have time to make other arrangements. There will be no advance notice. It will be fast, cold, and cruel. Notice also that one option is to simply inflate debt away. Given the amount of indebtedness in much of the world, inflation will certainly be part of the “solution,” with or without outright confiscation of your savings. (So make sure you own enough gold, and avoid government bonds like the plague.)

Further, the IMF has already studied how much the tax would have to be: The tax rates needed to bring down public debt to pre-crisis levels are sizable: reducing debt ratios to 2007 levels would require, for a sample of 15 euro area countries, a tax rate of about 10% on households with a positive net worth. Note that the criterion is not billionaire status, nor millionaire, nor even “comfortably well off.” The tax would apply to anyone with a positive net worth. And the 10% wealth-grab would, of course, be on top of regular income taxes, sales taxes, property taxes, etc.

4: We Like Pension Funds

Unfortunately, it’s not just savings. Carmen Reinhart (again) and M. Belén Sbrancia made the following suggestions in a 2011 paper:

Historically, periods of high indebtedness have been associated with a rising incidence of default or restructuring of public and private debts. A subtle type of debt restructuring takes the form of ‘financial repression.’ Financial repression includes directed lending to government by captive domestic audiences (such as pension funds), explicit or implicit caps on interest rates, regulation of cross-border capital movements, and (generally) a tighter connection between government and banks.

Yes, your retirement account is now a “captive domestic audience.” Are you ready to “lend” it to the government? “Directed” means “compulsory” in the above statement, and you may not have a choice if “regulation of cross-border capital movements”—capital controls—are instituted.

5: The Eurozone Sanctions Money-Grabs

Germany’s Bundesbank weighed in on this subject last January:

“Countries about to go bankrupt should draw on the private wealth of their citizens through a one-off capital levy before asking other states for help.”

The context here is that of Germans not wanting to have to pay for the mistakes of Italians, Greeks, Cypriots, or whatnot. Fair enough, but the “capital levy” prescription is still a confiscation of funds from individuals’ banks or brokerage accounts.

Here’s another statement that sent shivers down my spine:

A capital levy corresponds to the principle of national responsibility, according to which tax payers are responsible for their government’s obligations before solidarity of other states is required.

The central bank of the strongest economy in the European Union has explicitly stated that you are responsible for your country’s fiscal obligations—and would be even if you voted against them! No matter how financially reckless politicians have been, it is your duty to meet your country’s financial needs.

This view effectively nullifies all objections. It’s a clear warning.

And it’s not just the Germans. On February 12, 2014, Reuters reported on an EU commission document that states:

The savings of the European Union’s 500 million citizens could be used to fund long-term investments to boost the economy and help plug the gap left by banks since the financial crisis.

Reuters reported that the Commission plans to request a draft law, “to mobilize more personal pension savings for long-term financing.”

EU officials are explicitly telling us that the pensions and savings of its citizens are fair game to meet the union’s financial needs. If you live in Europe, the writing is on the wall.

Actually, it’s already under way… Reuters recently reported that Spain has

…introduced a blanket taxation rate of .03% on all bank account deposits, in a move aimed at… generating revenues for the country’s cash-strapped autonomous communities.

The regulation, which could bring around 400 million euros ($546 million) to the state coffers based on total deposits worth 1.4 trillion euros, had been tipped as a possible sweetener for the regions days after tough deficit limits for this year and next were set by the central government.

Some may counter that since Spain has relatively low tax rates and the bail-in rate is small, this development is no big deal. I disagree: it establishes the principle, sets the precedent, and opens the door for other countries to pursue similar policies.

6: Canada Jumps on the Confiscation Bandwagon

You may recall this text from last year’s budget in Canada:

“The Government proposes to implement a bail-in regime for systemically important banks.”

A bail-in is what they call it when a government takes depositors’ money to plug a bank’s financial holes—just as was done in Cyprus last year.

This regime will be designed to ensure that, in the unlikely event a systemically important bank depletes its capital, the bank can be recapitalized and returned to viability through the very rapid conversion of certain bank liabilities into regulatory capital.

What’s a “bank liability”? Your deposits. How quickly could they do such a thing? They just told us: fast enough that you won’t have time to react.

By the way, the Canadian bail-in was approved on a national level just one week after the final decision was made for the Cyprus bail-in.

7: FATCA

Have you considered why the Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act was passed into law? It was supposed to crack down on tax evaders and collect unpaid tax revenue. However, it’s estimated that it will only generate $8.7 billion over 10 years, which equates to 0.18% of the current budget deficit. And that’s based on rosy government projections.

FATCA was snuck into the HIRE Act of 2010, with little notice or discussion. Since the law will raise negligible revenue, I think something else must be going on here. If you ask me, it’s about control.

In my opinion, the goal of FATCA is to keep US savers trapped in US banks and in the US dollar, in case the US wants to implement a Cyprus-like bail-in. Given the debt load in the US and given statements made by government officials, this seems like a reasonable conclusion to draw.

This is why I think that the institution of capital controls is a “when” question, not an “if” one. The momentum is clearly gaining steam for some form of capital controls being instituted in the near future. If you don’t internationalize, you must accept the risk that your assets will be confiscated, taxed, regulated, and/or inflated away.

What to Expect Going Forward

  • First, any announcement will probably not use the words “capital controls.”It will be couched positively, for the “greater good,” and words like “patriotic duty” will likely feature prominently in mainstream press and government press releases. If you try to transfer assets outside your country, you could be branded as a traitor or an enemy of the state, even among some in your own social circles.
  • Controls will likely occur suddenly and with no warning. When did Cyprus implement their bail-in scheme? On a Friday night after banks were closed. By the way, prior to the bail-in, citizens were told the Cypriot banks had “government guarantees” and were “well-regulated.” Those assurances were nothing but a cruel joke when lightning-fast confiscation was enacted.
  • Restrictions could last a long time. While many capital controls have been lifted in Cyprus, money transfers outside the country still require approval from the Central Bank—over a year after the bail-in.
  • They’ll probably be retroactive.Actually, remove the word “probably.” Plenty of laws in response to prior financial crises have been enacted retroactively. Any new fiscal or monetary emergency would provide easy justification to do so again. If capital controls or savings confiscations were instituted later this year, for example, they would likely be retroactive to January 1. For those who have not yet taken action, it could already be too late.
  • Social environment will be chaotic.If capital controls are instituted, it will be because we’re in some kind of economic crisis, which implies the social atmosphere will be rocky and perhaps even dangerous. We shouldn’t be surprised to see riots, as there would be great uncertainty and fear. That’s dangerous in its own right, but it’s also not the kind of environment in which to begin making arrangements.
  • Ban vs. levy. Imposing capital controls is a risky move for a government to make; even the most reckless politicians understand this. That won’t stop them, but it could make them act more subtly. For instance, they might not impose actual bans on moving money across borders, but instead place a levy on doing so. Say, a 50% levy? That would “encourage” funds to remain inside a given country. Why not 100%? You could be permitted to transfer $10,000 outside the country—but if the fee for doing so is $10,000, few will do it. Such verbal games allow politicians to claim they have not enacted capital controls and yet achieve the same effect. There are plenty of historical examples of countries doing this very thin

Keep in mind: Who will you complain to? If the government takes a portion of your assets, legally, who will you sue? You will have no recourse. And don’t expect anyone below your tax bracket to feel sorry for you.

POLICY CONTROLS (Monetary, Fiscal, Public & Tax Policy)

  • January 2015 Financial Repression – New IMF Paper on The Liquidation of Government Debt New IMF paper by Carmen Reinhart & M. Belen Sbrancia .. presents how public debt is often reduced through the use of financial repression – a tax on bondholders & savers via negative or below market real interest rates .. from abstract:High public debt often produces the drama of default and restructuring. But debt is also reduced through financial repression, a tax on bondholders and savers via negative or below-market real interest rates. After WWII, capital controls and regulatory restrictions created a captive audience for government debt .. Financial repression is most successful in liquidating debt when accompanied by inflation. For the advanced economies, real interest rates were ne gative ½ of the time during 1945–1980. Average annual interest expense savings for a 12—country sample range from about 1 to 5% of GDP for the full 1945–1980 period. We suggest that, once again, financial repression may be part of the toolkit deployed to cope with the most recent surge in public debt in advanced economies.”
  • October 2014 – Financial Repression is Very Low Interest Rates for a Very Long Time The 16th annual Geneva Report by the International Centre for Monetary and Banking Studies & written by senior economists including 3 former senior central bankers, predicts interest rates across the world will have to stay low for a “very, very long” time to enable households, companies, & governments to service their debts and avoid another crash .. The report’s authors expect interest rates to stay lower than market expectations because the rise in debt means that borrowers would be unable to withstand faster rate rises .. “Global debt-to-GDP is still growing, breaking new highs .. At the same time, in a poisonous combination, world growth and inflation are also lower than previously expected, also – though not only – as a legacy of the past crisis. Deleveraging and slower nominal growth are in many cases interacting in a vicious loop, with the latter making the deleveraging process harder and the former exacerbating the economic slowdown. Moreover, the global capacity to take on debt has been reduced through the combination of slower expansion in real output and lower inflation.” 
  • October 2014 – Financial Repression is the likely approach for Governments to pay down debt Great insightful article on financial repression by Daniel Amerman .. questions how the U.S. federal government can pay down its enormous debt .. sees 4 primary options that the government can take: 1) Decades of austerity with higher taxes and lower government spending. 2) Defaulting on government debts. 3) Inflating away the value of the debt through rapidly slashing the value of the currency. 4) Using “Financial Repression”, a process that is complex enough that the average voter never understands how it works, thus allowing governments to use this potent but subtle method of taking vast sums of private wealth, year after year, decade after decade, with almost no political consequences. The essay reminds readers the 4th option is the likely approach, points out the world took this approach in the 1940s through the 1970s to pay down government debt .. “Because of the sheer size of the problem – most of the population must be made to participate, year after year. Financial Repression therefore uses an assortment of carrots and sticks to ensure that investors have little choice but to participate – on a playing field that has been rigged against them as a matter of design – even if they are among the small minority who are aware of what is being done to them.”The essay covers 4 areas of financial repression: 1) Inflation (Shearing #1)  2) Negative Real Interest Rates (Shearing #2) 3) Funding By Financial Institutions (Fence #1). 4) Capital Controls (Fence #2). 
  • September 2014 – Governments Implementing Financial Repression International Man article on how western world indebted governments need money, how they will protect the big banks at the expense of the citizens with financial repression ..  The International Monetary Fund (IMF) published a horrifying paper, called The Fund’s Lending Framework and Sovereign Debt. That paper in turn was based on one from December 2013, called Financial and Sovereign Debt Crises: Some Lessons Learned and Those Forgotten .. The December 2013 document, right at the start, says that financial repression is necessary: “The claim is that advanced countries do not need to resort to the standard toolkit of emerging markets, including debt restructurings and conversions, higher inflation, capital controls and other forms of financial repression .. As we document, this claim is at odds with the historical track record of most advanced economies, where debt restructuring or conversions, financial repression, and a tolerance for higher inflation, or a combination of these were an integral part of the resolution of significant past debt overhangs.” .. The IMF report goes on to say: “Governments can stuff debt into local pension funds and insurance companies, forcing them through regulation to accept far lower rates of return than they might otherwise demand .. Domestic defaults, restructurings, or conversions are particularly difficult to document and can sometimes be disguised as ‘voluntary’ .. The Fund would be able to provide exceptional access on the basis of a debt operation that involves an extension of maturities .. That means that 30-day notes can be instantly turned into 30-year bonds.” – this last sentence means the ability to change 30-day notes into 30-year bonds, effectively holding the money captive for a much longer period of time
  • Monetary Policy & Financial Repression in Britain, 1951 – 59 New book coming out by William Allen on Monetary Policy and Financial Repression in Britain, 1951 – 59 .. this book explores the politics of formulating monetary policy in the 1950s, the tools implementing it & discusses the parallels between the present monetary policy & that of 1951 .. “Drawing on official archives, this study describes how monetary policy was decided on, implemented and communicated at a time when the government was struggling with massive post-war debts while maintaining welfare and military spending and cutting taxes. It discusses the roles of the Governor of the Bank of England, Cameron Cobbold, and of successive Chancellors R.A. Butler, Harold Macmillan, Peter Thorneycroft and Derick Heathcoat Amory, and Macmillan’s continued dominance of monetary policy after he became Prime Minister. It explains the intimate relationships between monetary policy, government debt management and fiscal policy, and the use of ‘financial repression’.”
  • Low Interest Rates & Inflation To Address Financial Repression Article points out the worse things get on the European financial/economic crisis, the more pressure there is on the European Central Bank (ECB) to print money – stocks will likely go up as this happens on the anticipation that the ECB will given in & start money printing .. “The ECB would print money and use it to buy eurozone government bonds, in order to prop up the region’s banking sector, and to encourage more risk-taking by lenders and investors. Of course, any hint of more money-printing always cheers the market, and European stocks reacted well to the news.” .. the article points to how U.S. & UK stocks have similarly reacted positively on all the money printing .. whether all this money is good for the economy or whether it even benefits the economy in any positive way is another question .. the article emphasizes the approach of financial repression taken by the U.S. & UK in keeping interest rates down & allowing inflation to rise in order to pay off some government debt via inflation, rather than by defaulting or cutting back spending .. most western world governments are in this bind, so that “we could see interest rates staying lower than markets expect for some time. And in the longer run, we could see a lot more inflation than we’ve been used to as well” .. in terms of investing, the article suggests sticking with countries that are looking to do more money printing & that have relatively inexpensive stock markets, such as Europe or Japan.
  • This Is Going To Destabilize The Entire World Financial System Ronald-Peter Stoferle, Incrementum AG “Bond prices in practically all industrialized nations are near all-time highs. Never before have interest rates been this low on a global basis. If one examines these events more closely, it becomes clear that the underlying problems cannot be solved by global zero interest rate policy, but that the natural selection process of the market is instead being undermined .. Interest rates are the heart, soul and life of the free enterprise system .. This truth is however veiled and distorted at the moment. Governments, financial institutions, entrepreneurs and consumers that are acting in an uneconomic manner are thus kept artificially afloat. As a result, instead of them being punished for their errors, these errors are perpetuated. Protraction of this process of selection leads to a structural weakening of the economy, and a concomitant increase in the system’s fragility .. Declining interest rate levels make a gradual increase in public indebtedness possible, while the interest burden (as a share of government spending) does not grow .. Without negative real interest rates, the steadily growing mountains of debt would long ago have ceased to be sustainable. Central banks are increasingly prisoners of the policy of over-indebtedness .. Central banks and governments are currently trying to create an increase in prosperity out of nothing. Such a monetary perpetuum mobile would be quite desirable for humankind, however, historically such attempts have at best led to a brief sugar high followed by a major hangover.
  • Alasdair Macleod On The Markets: Keep Calm & Carry On “Investment is now all about the trend and little else. You never have to value anything properly any more: just measure confidence. This approach to investing resonates with post-Keynesian economics and government planning. The expectations of the crowd, or its animal spirits, are now there to be managed. No longer is there the seemingly irrational behaviour of unfettered markets dominated by independent thinkers. Forward guidance is just the latest manifestation of this policy. It represents the triumph of economic management over the markets .. Doubtless there is a growing band of central bankers who believe that with this control they have finally discovered Keynes’s Holy Grail: the euthanasia of the rentier and his replacement by the state as the primary source of business capital. This being the case, last month’s dip in the markets will turn out to be just that, because intervention will simply continue and if necessary be ramped up .. But in the process, all market risk is being transferred from bonds, equities and all other financial assets into currencies themselves; and it is the outcome of their purchasing power that will prove to be the final judgement in the debate of markets versus economic planning.”
  • The Fed’s Financial Repression At Work: How Big Blue Was Turned Into A Wall Street Slush Fund David Stockman — “IBM is a poster child for the ill-effects of the Fed’s financial repression. In effect, the Fed’s zero interest rate policies are telling big companies to issue truckloads of debt and use the proceeds to buyback shares hand-over-fist. That way fast money speculators on Wall Street are appeased by the resulting share price lift, and top executives collect bigger winnings on their stock options.”

  • BoJ To Engage In ‘Financial Repression’; We Stay Long USD/JPY – BNPP 07-11-14 eFX News “Japan now has one of the highest inflation rates in the G10. Our economists expect the BoJ to engage in ‘financial repression’ to restrain the rise in JGB yields that results from Japan’s fiscal dynamics,” BNPP says as a rationale behind this view. “A larger overshoot in Japan’s inflation rate would also see the yen weaken. If inflation gets out of hand, we could, our economists suggest, see an ‘operation twist’ policy in Japan – similar to that witnessed in the US. This would entail aggressive purchases of JGBs coupled with interest rate hikes to stave off inflation. The resultant inversion in the yield curve, along with the upside shock to inflation, is a risk scenario for Japan and the ensuing adverse growth-inflation paradigm would necessarily entail a weaker yen,” BNPP argues. “In addition, a re-allocation in the government pension investment fund (GPIF) and a likely pick-up in Japanese outflows will mean JPY weakens,” BNPP adds.

THE EMBEDDED AND INSTITUTIONALIZED CORRUPTION AT THE IRS

“Democracy must be built through open societies that share information. When there is information, there is enlightenment. When there is debate, there are solutions. When there is no sharing of power, no rule of law, no accountability, there is abuse, corruption, subjugation and indignation.” —Atifete Jahjaga, President of Kosovo

As we continue our articles on corruption it has become readily apparent that there is almost nowhere to stop, in that waste, fraud, abuse and corruption are not ancillary to government, they are part and parcel of it. Most of the federal bureaucracies have not only grown into powers unto themselves with littleoversight, they embody this culture of waste, fraud, abuse and corruption. This is the peril that each new nation faces as it ages, especially if the citizenry is wholly apathetic, as most Americans are today.

None in the list of the ever-growing federal bureaucracies epitomizes this waste, fraud, abuse and corruption more than the Internal Revenue Service (IRS). Its power to collect or to incarcerate, by virtually any means is almost absolute. As many Americans have found out the hard way, challenges to IRS power are met with silence, or the intransigence, arrogance and corruption of America’s judicial system that have become pitch hitters and enablers of IRS corruption, overreach and abuse. We wrote about this judicial corruption in our last article entitled:

“Corruption, Collusion and Cronyism, America’s Judicial System”

The history of the IRS is checkered at best and much of the blame of what the IRS has become can be laid directly at the feet of the U. S. Congress. Since its creation out of the 16th Amendment in 1913, the IRS Act was reconstituted every two years by Congressional legislation. Then in 1939, the Internal Revenue Code (IRC) was codified into statute under 26 USC. Several machinations and revisions to the code took place in the 50’s, then again in the 80’s and once more in the 90’s. Congress has toyed with it, manipulated it, revised it and bastardized it at almost every Congressional session with new laws to placate some special interest group, advance some social goal, or enhance some business interest.

The Treasury Department and the IRS itself have added to this congressional injustice by piling rule on top of rule in the IRC with no attempt to remove the conflicts or the ambiguities. With Obama Care now being tied to it, the IRC has virtually made slaves of every single American that believes they must comply with its twisted, mangled, distorted, confusing and conflicting regulations.

The controversy surrounding the IRS and its underhanded tactics to collect the revenue needed to operate the government is never ending. Worse than that, the IRS is being used as a political weapon by this and past administrations. It’s not just the Lois Lerner’s in the IRS. It’s an embedded culture of corrupted power throughout the agency.

Attempts to get to the bottom of its corruption by Congressional oversight are stonewalled by the IRS, the Treasury Department, the Justice Department and the White House, thereby allowing the IRS to continue its illegal and abusive tactics unimpeded. No one is fined, fired, or sent to jail. As the IRS stonewalls, the questions surrounding the legality of the Internal Revenue Code rage on.

One of the big questions is, are you, an American citizen, a “taxpayer?” If, in the IRC, there is a specific and legal definition of a “taxpayer” and you do not fit that legal definition, then why are you obligated to pay “income” taxes? If, in the IRC, there is a legal, clear and concise definition of what is to be construed as “income” and your income does not meet that legal definition, why then should you pay any IRS taxes at all? If we are not a government of laws where those laws have unambiguous meanings, then we are a government and a people in chaos where those with the guns can make up the laws. That is not a Constitutional Republic ladies and gentlemen, that is a dictatorship.

Regarding the legal definition of “taxpayer” from the IRC: Only “taxpayers” made “liable” for the tax by statute are required by the IRC to be subject to the “income” tax. This fact has been clearly stated through the years in many court decisions including Long v. Rasmussen, 281 F.Supp. 236 (1922), Stuart v. Chinese Chamber of Commerce of Phoenix, 168 F.2d 712 (1948), First National Bank of Emlenton, Pa. v. US, 161 F.Supp. 847 (1956), Botta v. Scanlon, 288 F.2d 509 (1961), and Economy Plumbing v. US, 470 F.2d 589 (1972).

“Taxpayer” is a legal term defined in 26USC7701(a)(14) which states, “The term ‘taxpayer’ means any person subject to an internal revenue tax.’” For a person to be subject to a tax there must be a provision in the law stating clearly that his or her activity makes him or her “liable” for the tax. There are only two things that create the presumption of “taxpayer” status and those are the signing of a W4 “withholding allowance” certificate, or voluntarily, with full knowledge and willful consent, executing an Income Tax Return Form 1040. Without the W4, or voluntarily filing a Form 1040, the IRS has no legal authority to demand that Americans pay taxes. To our knowledge there has been no determination by a court of competent jurisdiction declaring under oath or affirmation and under penalty of perjury that an American citizen is a legal term “taxpayer” without the citizen being clearly identified in the statutes, or having first volunteered into compliance.

Try to get the IRS to disclose the law which compels such a man or woman to voluntarily submit himself to the Code when the Code itself only compels “withholding agents” to pay the tax withheld from those made liable under Code sections 1441, 1442 and 1443 (See Exhibit 1, “Who is Liable…”). This conclusion is derived from the term “taxable year” defined in 26USC7701(a)(23) to mean “the calendar year . . . of which the taxable income is computed under subtitle A.”

So, who is included “under subtitle A.” This is disclosed in the term definition of “withholding agent”. This is the ONLY definition of “withholding agent” in Title 26. In unambiguous statutes of the United States, codified in 26USC7701(a)(16), “Withholding agent. — The term ‘withholding agent’ means any person required to deduct and withhold any tax under the provisions of sections 1441, 1442, 1443, or 1461.” The limiting term definition of “withholding agent” “means any person required to deduct and withhold any tax” is conclusive and includes only “any [all] persons required to deduct and withhold” from any [all] tax, with no exceptions.

Thus, the ONLY parties “under Subtitle A” are listed in 7701(a)(16). These specific parties are identified in Subtitle A, i.e. section 1441 (non-resident aliens), section 1442 (foreign corporations) and section 1443 (foreign organizations) with the hold harmless clause for Subtitle A being section 1461. Only these Subtitle A parties can have money forcibly deducted and sent to the IRS. Therefore, it follows that only those parties mentioned in Subtitle A’s definition of “withholding agent” can be legally liable to file and pay income taxes, under Subtitle A.

It is clear that IRS has nearly everyone convinced that they are “required” to “voluntarily self-assess” their tax liability at least annually and pay to the IRS the amount they themselves have deemed they owe. This, despite the fact that the IRC only makes “Withholding Agents” liable for filing an Income Tax Return (Form 1040), or for paying a tax.

The income tax law (IRC), however, is the only instance where there is no clear liability provision defining just who is liable for the tax. Although partners are called “liable” for taxes on partnerships, that “liability” is only in their “individual capacity”, and there is no provision in the IRC making them liable in their “individual capacity”. That of course, is ambiguous. The only clear liability provision is section 1461, which specifically assigns liability for the tax to those required to withhold taxes on nonresident aliens and foreign corporations. While 26USC3403 does require employers to withhold income tax from employees, there is no law that makes the employees liable for the tax in the first place. Thus, there is no law making the typical American liable for any income tax, unless he voluntarily agrees to be assessed by singing a W4 statement, or filing a Form 1040 and signing it under penalty of perjury.

Further, the fact is that the “income” tax is an indirect tax on franchised or privileged activities, not on everyone’s “income”. The “income” is merely a measure for the tax. The Congressional Record, Volume 89, Part 2, on Page 2580 for March 27, 1943, states:

“The income tax is, therefore, not a tax on income as such. It is an excise tax with respect to certain activities and privileges which is measured by relevance to the income which they produce. The income is not the subject of the tax; it is the basis for determining the amount of the tax. The U.S. Supreme Court in the case of Flint v. Stone Tracy Co., 220 US 107, in discussing income tax as an excise tax, stated on page 165, ‘It is therefore well settled by the decisions of this Court that, when the sovereign authority has exercised the right to tax the legitimate subject of taxation, as an exercise of franchise or privilege, it is no objection if the foundation of the taxation is found in the income.’”

If any of the above statements are true, and there are many who believe they are, then the entire Income Tax Code is a fraud, irrespective of the fact that the IRS is hopelessly corrupt. But woe be to the person who acts on the alleged strength of these statements. The full force of the IRS, the Treasury Department and the Justice Department will come down on the fool who relies on the law, as legally codified in the IRC, to argue that he or she does not owe income taxes.

But remember, if the IRS is attempting to enforce laws (the IRC) on American citizens that do not exist, or are not authorized by statute, the IRS is acting under the “color of law”. Acting under the “color of law” is not only illegal, it amounts to corruption, collusion and conspiracy, if not open tyranny. The only remedy for the citizen is to sue the government for violation of his or her civil rights under 42 USC Sections 1983 and 1985 in the corrupt judicial system. Good luck with that.

The U. S. Supreme Court made it clear in United States v. Lee, 106 US 196 (1882):

“It seems to be opposed to all the principles upon which the rights of the citizen, when brought in collision with the acts of the government, [106 U.S. 196, 219] must be determined. In such cases there is no safety for the citizen, except in the protection of the judicial tribunals, for rights which have been invaded by the officers of the government, professing to act in its name. There remains to him or her the alternative of resistance, which may amount to crime.”

But if judicial tribunals (our Kangaroo courts) are also corrupt, as we wrote in the above referenced article, what recourse does that citizen have to defend against a government bureaucracy that is corrupt and has the power to confiscate or incarcerate …. or perhaps even make you disappear?

If Americans cannot root out this systemic corruption in our institutions of government, whether local, state, or federal, the jaws of the vice of unconstitutional legislation, rules, regulations and ordinances will close upon all of us until we will not be able to move in any direction without the permission of that same corrupt government. Make no mistake that permission will be issued at the point of a gun.

Those who do not have the vision to see this outcome as our only future without intervention by the people are doomed to one day find themselves in chains. Corruption is the internal enemy of a free nation. Who dare rise to expose it? We do! Our recent articles on corruption in government, we have written and continue to write, are our first attempt to do just that. We intend to build on these articles with specific actions.
