20 QUESTIONS FOR THE RATIONAL MIND

March 11th, 2017 by

http://www.rebelmadman.com/?p=633

By Michael Gaddy

Author’s note: below are several questions that must be answered logically if we are to survive as a free country. These questions will not lead you to a comfort zone. If you want to attack the messenger and discard the message, your mind is neither rational nor logical, but is most likely driven by emotional attachment to a deity called government.

  1. If the US military, over the past 15 years, has truly been fighting for our freedoms, expending large amounts of blood and treasure, why do we now have far fewer individual freedoms than when we began these “perpetual wars for peace?”
  2. Trillions of dollars have been spent, allegedly to protect our freedoms, yet we have fewer freedoms than before. Who has profited monetarily from what must be called an effort in futility?
  3. If it is true that “we must fight them over there so we don’t have to fight them over here,” why are our borders left unprotected and we are allowing hundreds of thousands of military-aged men from the countries where our military is or has been engaged to “immigrate” into our country?
  4. If you knew a man who left his home and family to travels thousands of miles from that home to engage an enemy but left the doors to his home unlocked, his family unarmed, and unfettered access to his loved ones by those who sought to harm or kill them, on what level would you rate his intelligence?
  5. If you found this man’s logic and reasoning to be flawed, why would you praise and support a government that did the same thing?
  6. Very few of our members of legislatures, both state and federal, vote constitutionally more than half the time. Therefore, many of the laws we live under are unconstitutional. Why then would you call members of the government entity that enforces these unconstitutional laws, “heroes?”
  7. Why, also, would you ask these same legislators to repeal and replace an unconstitutional law with another unconstitutional law? (ACA comes immediately to mind.)
  8. When, not if, an unconstitutional law is passed banning the ownership and possession of the means to protect ourselves and our families, who will come to enforce those unlawful, tyrannical edicts? Will you call them heroes, then?
  9. Who enforces those unconstitutional, anti-Second Amendment laws where they presently exist in our country?
  10. Will it be any different where you live?
  11. Where in the Second Amendment can be found the provision that one must participate in government mandated training to exercise that Creator granted right?
  12. Where in the Second Amendment can be found the provision that one must pay a fee to the government in order to exercise that Creator granted right?
  13. Why is there a large marble monument in this country’s capital which honors a man who destroyed the tenets of the “consent of the governed” provision in our Declaration of Independence, killed hundreds of thousands to create a strong central government, destroyed state’s rights, established the first income tax and created the Internal Revenue Service which are all destructive of our Creator granted rights?
  14. If churches in this country are subject to the payment of taxes, can there ever be a true separation of church and state?
  15. Could this (payment of taxes) be the reason so many churches today preach loyalty to Caesar above loyalty to, and observance of, our inalienable rights?
  16. If the powers within our government used “Operation Paperclip” to staff the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) with former Nazi SS leaders at its beginning in 1947, should we be surprised today that the CIA is acting just like the Gestapo did in Germany in the 1930’s and 1940’s?
  17. The Standards Committee of the Confederate Congress said this when designating the St. Andrew’s Cross as the Confederate Battle Flag, “This flag should be a token of the humble acknowledgment of God and be a public testimony to the world that our trust is in the Lord our God.” Is the banning of this flag by many in this country an attack on alleged “racism” or a surreptitious attack on Christianity?
  18. Are there any other attacks on the Christian faith that have occurred during the past 50 years by those who oppose our Creator granted inalienable rights?
  19. When it comes to the health, safety, and welfare of all American citizens, which should be considered most important; the people themselves, regardless of age or the ability to secure those rights or the monetary bottom line of the businesses who claim to supply them?
  20. What is more important to you, the individual, inalienable rights of your children and grandchildren or the worship of the deity called government in regards to all of that government’s rules, regulations and laws which are in direct conflict with our Creator granted rights?

No! The Supreme Court is NOT the Final Arbiter of what is Constitutional or Unconstitutional

March 10th, 2017 by

ConstitutionMatthew Trewhella

A false belief that almost all Americans hold to in our day is the idea that the U.S. Supreme Court is the final arbiter of what is constitutional or unconstitutional. The adherents of this belief – and there is a sea of lawyers in this country who have a vested interest in furthering this odious fiction – actually have the hubris to point to the Constitution itself and say that the Constitution declares the judiciary to be the final arbiter.

They proffer Article 6, paragraph 2 of the U.S. Constitution – the ‘supremacy clause’ – for their notion of judicial supremacy. But when you read Article 6, paragraph 2, you realize that the Supreme Court isn’t even mentioned, nor are federal courts of any kind mentioned. Article 6, paragraph 2 – known as the supremacy clause actually gives supremacy to the Constitution!

Wholly opposite of this view of ‘judicial supremacy’ was the view held by America’s founders. They viewed the judiciary as being the weakest branch of the government.

In a letter penned in 1823, Thomas Jefferson stated: “At the establishment of our constitutions, the judiciary bodies were supposed to be the most helpless and harmless members of the government. Experience, however, soon showed in what way they were to become the most dangerous.”

Alexander Hamilton who was the most favorable to the judiciary – wanting to allay the fears that other of the founders had of the judiciary – stated: “The judiciary, from the nature of its functions, will always be the least dangerous to the political rights of the Constitution; because it will be least in the capacity to annoy or injure them.”

James Madison – known as the architect of the Constitution – stated: “The Judiciary is beyond comparison the weakest of the three departments of power.” He said, “In republican government, the legislative authority necessarily predominates.”  The legislature does not bow down to the judiciary – rather it predominates.

The judiciary is not the strongest – it does not write laws – it is not the final arbiter. Rather, as the founders stated – they are supposed to be the most helpless, the most harmless, the weakest, and the least dangerous to the Constitution. All that has been turned on its head. Now all other branches bow down to the judiciary – as though they can do no other than obey. America has replaced a monarchy with an oligarchy.

We now have social transformation without representation.

Jefferson warned of this 200 years ago. He wrote in a letter in 1820 to an early judicial supremacist: “You seem . . . to consider the judges as the ultimate arbiters of all constitutional questions; a very dangerous doctrine indeed, and one which would place us under the despotism of an oligarchy.” He went on to write: “The Constitution has erected no such single tribunal, knowing that to whatever hands confided, with the corruptions of time and party, its members would become despots.”

And that is what the Supreme Court is in our day – despots.

And they are not the final arbiters – as Jefferson states, “The Constitution has erected no such single tribunal.”

Jefferson stated in another letter in 1821 – a year later: “The germ of dissolution of our federal government is in the constitution of the federal Judiciary; an irresponsible body (for impeachment is scarcely a scare-crow) working like gravity by night and by day, gaining a little today and a little tomorrow, and advancing its noiseless step like a thief, over the field of jurisdiction, until all shall be usurped.”

And the judiciary has been doing exactly that for 200 years now. Rewriting the Constitution – giving themselves powers never granted them in the Constitution. Usurping all other government jurisdictions.

Men will forbear and so we should – but there comes a point where forbearance becomes sin. There comes a point where forbearance becomes cowardice. There comes a point when men realize they no longer have the convenience of acting indifferent towards the unjust and immoral actions of their government. And I submit to you that the lawlessness of the judiciary should not be forborne.

I submit to you that the murder of the preborn should not be forborne. The perverting of marriage, the rewriting of the First Amendment, and a host of other evils by the federal judiciary should not be forborne.

Senator Oliver Ellsworth, the primary drafter of Article 3 of the Constitution which delineates the function of the judiciary, promised the people of his state before the Constitution was ratified that the judiciary was “not to intermeddle with your internal policy.”

Now every governor in America bows down and bends over to the judiciary. They accommodate murder – they accommodate perversion of marriage – they’ll accommodate boys in the girl’s shower rooms too.

Alexander Hamilton – the founding father with the biggest love affair with the judiciary while trying to calm concerns of other founders stated that the judiciary “must ultimately depend upon the aid of the executive arm even for the efficacy of its judgments.”

In other words, Hamilton expected the executive branch to check the judiciary if they made immoral/unjust or constitutionally-repugnant rulings. But now, the judiciary not only has the compliance of the President (not to mention Congress), but they also have the compliance of every governor in America. None interpose.

Their duty is not to accommodate or bow down – but to interpose.

The judiciary is the tyrant. They are lawless. We are under the despotism of an oligarchy. And this lawless authoritarianism of the federal courts must be broken – it will only be broken by the interposition of the lesser magistrates.

No where does the Constitution bind us to a suicide pact with SCOTUS.

As legal historian Alpheus Thomas Mason wrote not too long ago: “Implicit in the system of government the Framers designed is the basic premise that unchecked power in any hands whatsoever is intolerable.” The Supreme Court must be checked – and it must be checked by the state magistrates. Congress is not going to do it – Congress is a weakling. The state magistrates need to do their God-given duty and check the lawlessness of the judiciary.

Olddogs Comments!

I started my study of the problems of America just over ten years ago, and the Constitution turned out to be the foundation of all the lies Americans have been assaulted with. Not only have few people in comparison to our population read it, even fewer would understand it! So where is all the freedom everyone is so proud of? Are you free to say what you want to a police officer? Not unless you want your ass whipped, or tasered and arrested! Are you free to complain to your representatives and receive a timely letter or call back, with an answer or plausible reason your complaint exists? I could go on forever with other reasons America has turned into a tyrannical monster, but few would read and agree because they like authoritarianism, or are so meek they are not even aware of the problem. And THAT is where the roots of tyranny exist. If you have been awakened by some event or tragedy, the shortest and most thorough way to understand our problem and how it happened is to buy this book.

The Government Is Still the Enemy of Freedom

By John W. Whitehead

“Rights aren’t rights if someone can take them away. They’re privileges. That’s all we’ve ever had in this country, is a bill of temporary privileges. And if you read the news even badly, you know that every year the list gets shorter and shorter. Sooner or later, the people in this country are gonna realize the government … doesn’t care about you, or your children, or your rights, or your welfare or your safety… It’s interested in its own power. That’s the only thing. Keeping it and expanding it wherever possible.”— George Carlin

My friends, we’re being played for fools.

On paper, we may be technically free.

In reality, however, we are only as free as a government official may allow.

We only think we live in a constitutional republic, governed by just laws created for our benefit.

Truth be told, we live in a dictatorship disguised as a democracy where all that we own, all that we earn, all that we say and do—our very lives—depends on the benevolence of government agents and corporate shareholders for whom profit and power will always trump principle. And now the government is litigating and legislating its way into a new framework where the dictates of petty bureaucrats carry greater weight than the inalienable rights of the citizenry.

We’re in trouble, folks.

Freedom no longer means what it once did. Battlefield America: T… John W. Whitehead Best Price: $13.48 Buy New $14.94

This holds true whether you’re talking about the right to criticize the government in word or deed, the right to be free from government surveillance, the right to not have your person or your property subjected to warrantless searches by government agents, the right to due process, the right to be safe from soldiers invading your home, the right to be innocent until proven guilty and every other right that once reinforced the founders’ belief that this would be “a government of the people, by the people and for the people.”

Not only do we no longer have dominion over our bodies, our families, our property and our lives, but the government continues to chip away at what few rights we still have to speak freely and think for ourselves.

If the government can control speech, it can control thought and, in turn, it can control the minds of the citizenry.

The unspoken freedom enshrined in the First Amendment is the right to think freely and openly debate issues without being muzzled or treated like a criminal.

In other words, if we no longer have the right to tell a Census Worker to get off our property, if we no longer have the right to tell a police officer to get a search warrant before they dare to walk through our door, if we no longer have the right to stand in front of the Supreme Court wearing a protest sign or approach an elected representative to share our views, if we no longer have the right to protest unjust laws by voicing our opinions in public or on our clothing or before a legislative body—no matter how misogynistic, hateful, prejudiced, intolerant, misguided or politically incorrect they might be—then we do not have free speech.

What we have instead is regulated, controlled speech, and that’s a whole other ballgame.

Protest laws, free speech zones, bubble zones, trespass zones, anti-bullying legislation, zero tolerance policies, hate crime laws and a host of other legalistic maladies dreamed up by politicians and prosecutors are conspiring to corrode our core freedoms purportedly for our own good.

For instance, the protest laws being introduced across the country—in 18 states so far—are supposedly in the name of “public safety and limiting economic damage.”

Don’t fall for it.

No matter how you package these laws, no matter how well-meaning they may sound, no matter how much you may disagree with the protesters or sympathize with the objects of the protest, these proposed laws are aimed at one thing only: discouraging dissent.

In Arizona, police would be permitted to seize the assets of anyone involved in a protest that at some point becomes violent.

In Minnesota, protesters would be forced to pay for the cost of having police on hand to “police” demonstrations.

Oregon lawmakers want to “require public community colleges and universities to expel any student convicted of participating in a violent riot.”

A proposed North Dakota law would give drivers the green light to “accidentally” run over protesters who are blocking a public roadway. Florida and Tennessee are entertaining similar laws.

Pushing back against what it refers to as “economic terrorism,” Washington wants to increase penalties for protesters who block access to highways and railways.

Anticipating protests over the Keystone Pipeline, South Dakota wants to apply the governor’s emergency response authority to potentially destructive protests, create new trespassing penalties and make it a crime to obstruct highways.

In Iowa, protesters who block highways with speeds posted above 55 mph could spend five years in prison, plus a fine of up to $7,500. Obstruct traffic in Mississippi and you could be facing a $10,000 fine and a five-year prison sentence.

A North Carolina law would make it a crime to heckle state officials. Under this law, shouting at a former governor would constitute a crime.

Indiana lawmakers wanted to authorize police to use “any means necessary” to breakup mass gatherings that block traffic. That legislation has since been amended to merely empower police to issue fines for such behavior.

Georgia is proposing harsh penalties and mandatory sentencing laws for those who obstruct public passages or throw bodily fluids on “public safety officers.”

Virginia wants to subject protesters who engage in an “unlawful assembly” after “having been lawfully warned to disperse” with up to a year of jail time and a fine of up to $2,500.

Missouri wants to make it illegal for anyone participating in an “unlawful assembly” to intentionally conceal “his or her identity by the means of a robe, mask, or other disguise.”

Colorado wants to lock up protesters for up to 18 months who obstruct or tamper with oil and gas equipment and charge them with up to $100,000 in fines.

Oklahoma wants to create a sliding scale for protesters whose actions impact or impede critical infrastructure. The penalties would range from $1,000 and six months in a county jail to $100,000 and up to 10 years in prison. And if you’re part of an organization, that fine goes as high as $1,000,000.

Michigan hopes to make it easier for courts to shut down “mass picketing” demonstrations and fine protesters who block entrances to businesses, private residences or roadways up to $1,000 a day. That fine jumps to $10,000 a day for unions or other organizing groups.

Ask yourself: if there are already laws on the books in all of the states that address criminal or illegal behavior such as blocking public roadways or trespassing on private property—because such laws are already on the books—then why does the government need to pass laws criminalizing activities that are already outlawed?

What’s really going on here?

No matter what the politicians might say, the government doesn’t care about our rights, our welfare or our safety.

How many times will we keep falling for the same tricks?

Every despotic measure used to control us and make us cower and fear and comply with the government’s dictates has been packaged as being for our benefit, while in truth benefiting only those who stand to profit, financially or otherwise, from the government’s transformation of the citizenry into a criminal class.

Remember, the Patriot Act didn’t make us safer. It simply turned American citizens into suspects and, in the process, gave rise to an entire industry—private and governmental—whose profit depends on its ability to undermine our Fourth Amendment rights.

Placing TSA agents in our nation’s airports didn’t make us safer. It simply subjected Americans to invasive groping, ogling and bodily searches by government agents. Now the TSA plans to subject travelers to even more “comprehensive” patdowns.

So, too, these protest laws are not about protecting the economy or private property or public roads. Rather, they are intended to muzzle discontent and discourage anyone from challenging government authority.

These laws are the shot across the bow.

They’re intended to send a strong message that in the American police state, you’re either a patriot who marches in lockstep with the government’s dictates or you’re a pariah, a suspect, a criminal, a troublemaker, a terrorist, a radical, a revolutionary.

Yet by muzzling the citizenry, by removing the constitutional steam valves that allow people to speak their minds, air their grievances and contribute to a larger dialogue that hopefully results in a more just world, the government is deliberately stirring the pot, creating a climate in which violence becomes inevitable.

When there is no steam valve—when there is no one to hear what the people have to say, because government representatives have removed themselves so far from their constituents—then frustration builds, anger grows and people become more volatile and desperate to force a conversation.

Then again, perhaps that was the government’s plan all along.

As John F. Kennedy warned in March 1962, “Those who make peaceful revolution impossible will make violent revolution inevitable.”

The government is making violent revolution inevitable.

How do you lock down a nation?

You sow discontent and fear among the populace. You terrorize the people into believing that radicalized foreigners are preparing to invade. You teach them to be non-thinkers who passively accept whatever is told them, whether it’s delivered by way of the corporate media or a government handler. You brainwash them into believing that everything the government does is for their good and anyone who opposes the government is an enemy. You acclimate them to a state of martial law, carried out by soldiers disguised as police officers but bearing the weapons of war. You polarize them so that they can never unite and stand united against the government. You create a climate in which silence is golden and those who speak up are shouted down. You spread propaganda and lies. You package the police state in the rhetoric of politicians.

And then, when and if the people finally wake up to the fact that the government is not and has never been their friend, when it’s too late for peaceful protests and violence is all that remains to them as a recourse against tyranny, you use all of the tools you’ve been so carefully amassing—the criminal databases and surveillance and identification systems and private prisons and protest laws—and you shut them down for good.

As I make clear in my book Battlefield America: The War on the American People, once a government assumes power—unconstitutional or not—it does not relinquish it. The militarized police are not going to stand down. The NSA will continue to collect electronic files on everything we do. More and more Americans are going to face jail time for offenses that prior generations did not concern themselves with.

The government—at all levels—could crack down on virtually anyone at any time.

Martin Luther King saw it coming: both the “spontaneous explosion of anger by various citizen groups” and the ensuing crackdown by the government.

“Police, national guard and other armed bodies are feverously preparing for repression,” King wrote shortly before he was assassinated. “They can be curbed not by unorganized resort to force…but only by a massive wave of militant nonviolence….It also may be the instrument of our national salvation.”

Militant nonviolent resistance.

“A nationwide nonviolent movement is very important,” King wrote. “We know from past experience that Congress and the President won’t do anything until you develop a movement around which people of goodwill can find a way to put pressure on them… This means making the movement powerful enough, dramatic enough, morally appealing enough, so that people of goodwill, the churches, laborers, liberals, intellectuals, students, poor people themselves begin to put pressure on congressmen to the point that they can no longer elude our demands.

“It must be militant, massive nonviolence,” King emphasized.

In other words, besides marches and protests, there would have to be civil disobedience. Civil disobedience forces the government to expend energy in many directions, especially if it is nonviolent, organized and is conducted on a massive scale. This is, as King knew, the only way to move the beast. It is the way to effect change without resorting to violence. And it is exactly what these protest laws are attempting to discourage We are coming to a crossroads. Either we gather together now and attempt to restore freedom or all will be lost. As King cautioned, “everywhere, ‘time is winding up,’ in the words of one of our spirituals, corruption in the land, people take your stand; time is winding up.”

What We Know About YOU”

March 8th, 2017 by

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

The IRSBy Anna Von Reitz

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

But what is “YOU”— ?  

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Olddogs Comments!

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

The Illusion of Freedom: The Police State Is Alive and Well!

POLICE STATEWe’re in a national state of denial!

“What happened here was the gradual habituation of the people, little by little, to being governed by surprise; to receiving decisions deliberated in secret; to believing that the situation was so complicated that the government had to act on information which the people could not understand, or so dangerous that, even if the people could understand it, it could not be released because of national security… This separation of government from people, this widening of the gap, took place so gradually and so insensibly, each step disguised (perhaps not even intentionally) as a temporary emergency measure or associated with true patriotic allegiance or with real social purposes. And all the crises and reforms (real reforms, too) so occupied the people that they did not see the slow motion underneath, of the whole process of government growing remoter and remoter.”—Historian Milton Mayer, They Thought They Were Free: The Germans, 1933-45

Brace yourself.

There is something being concocted in the dens of power, far beyond the public eye, and it doesn’t bode well for the future of this country.

Anytime you have an entire nation so mesmerized by the antics of the political ruling class that they are oblivious to all else, you’d better beware. Anytime you have a government that operates in the shadows, speaks in a language of force, and rules by fiat, you’d better beware. And anytime you have a government so far removed from its people as to ensure that they are never seen, heard or heeded by those elected to represent them, you’d better beware.

The world has been down this road before.

As historian Milton Mayer recounts in his seminal book on Hitler’s rise to power, They Thought They Were Free, “Most of us did not want to think about fundamental things and never had. There was no need to. Nazism gave us some dreadful, fundamental things to think about—we were decent people‑—and kept us so busy with continuous changes and ‘crises’ and so fascinated, yes, fascinated, by the machinations of the ‘national enemies’, without and within, that we had no time to think about these dreadful things that were growing, little by little, all around us.”

We are at our most vulnerable right now.

The gravest threat facing us as a nation is not extremism—delivered by way of sovereign citizens or radicalized Muslims—but despotism, exercised by a ruling class whose only allegiance is to power and money.

Nero fiddled while Rome burned.

America is burning, and all most Americans can do is switch the channel, tune out what they don’t want to hear, and tune into their own personal echo chambers.

We’re in a national state of denial.

Yet no amount of escapism can shield us from the harsh reality that the danger in our midst is posed by an entrenched government bureaucracy that has no regard for the Constitution, Congress, the courts or the citizenry.

If the team colors have changed from blue to red, that’s just cosmetic.

The playbook remains the same. The leopard has not changed its spots.

Scrape off the surface layers and you will find that the American police state is alive and well and continuing to wreak havoc on the rights of the American people.

“We the people” are no longer living the American Dream.

We’re living the American Lie.

Indeed, Americans have been lied to so sincerely, so incessantly, and for so long by politicians of all stripes—who lie compulsively and without any seeming remorse—that they’ve almost come to prefer the lies trotted out by those in government over less-palatable truths.

The American people have become compulsive believers.

As Nick Cohen writes for The Guardian, “Compulsive liars shouldn’t frighten you. They can harm no one, if no one listens to them. Compulsive believers, on the other hand: they should terrify you. Believers are the liars’ enablers. Their votes give the demagogue his power. Their trust turns the charlatan into the president. Their credulity ensures that the propaganda of half-calculating and half-mad fanatics has the power to change the world.”

While telling the truth “in a time of universal deceit is,” as George Orwell concluded, “a revolutionary act,” believing the truth—and being able to distinguish the truth from a lie—is also a revolutionary act.

Here’s a truth few Americans want to acknowledge: nothing has changed (at least, not for the better) since Barack Obama passed the reins of the police state to Donald Trump.

The police state is still winning. We the people are still losing.

In fact, the American police state has continued to advance at the same costly, intrusive, privacy-sapping, Constitution-defying, relentless pace under President Trump as it did under President Obama.

Police haven’t stopped disregarding the rights of citizens. Having been given the green light to probe, poke, pinch, taser, search, seize, strip, shoot and generally manhandle anyone they see fit in almost any circumstance, all with the general blessing of the courts, America’s law enforcement officials are no longer mere servants of the people entrusted with keeping the peace. Indeed, they continue to keep the masses corralled, under control, and treated like suspects and enemies rather than citizens.

SWAT teams haven’t stopped crashing through doors and terrorizing families. Nationwide, SWAT teams continue to be employed to address an astonishingly trivial array of criminal activities or mere community nuisances including angry dogs, domestic disputes, improper paperwork filed by an orchid farmer, and misdemeanor marijuana possession. With more than 80,000 SWAT team raids carried out every year on unsuspecting Americans for relatively routine police matters and federal agencies laying claim to their own law enforcement divisions, the incidence of botched raids and related casualties continue to rise.

The Pentagon and the Department of Homeland Security haven’t stopped militarizing and federalizing local police. Police forces continue to be transformed into heavily armed extensions of the military, complete with jackboots, helmets, shields, batons, pepper-spray, stun guns, assault rifles, body armor, miniature tanks and weaponized drones. In training police to look and act like the military and use the weapons and tactics of war against American citizens, the government continues to turn the United States into a battlefield.

Schools haven’t stopped treating young people like hard-core prisoners. School districts continue to team up with law enforcement to create a “schoolhouse to jailhouse track” by imposing a “double dose” of punishment for childish infractions: suspension or expulsion from school, accompanied by an arrest by the police and a trip to juvenile court. In this way, the paradigm of abject compliance to the state continues to be taught by example in the schools, through school lockdowns where police and drug-sniffing dogs enter the classroom, and zero tolerance policies that punish all offenses equally and result in young people being expelled for childish behavior.

For-profit private prisons haven’t stopped locking up Americans and immigrants alike at taxpayer expense.States continue to outsource prison management to private corporations out to make a profit at taxpayer expense. And how do you make a profit in the prison industry? Have the legislatures pass laws that impose harsh penalties for the slightest noncompliance in order keep the prison cells full and corporate investors happy.

Censorship hasn’t stopped. First Amendment activities continue to be pummeled, punched, kicked, choked, chained and generally gagged all across the country. The reasons for such censorship vary widely from political correctness, safety concerns and bullying to national security and hate crimes but the end result remained the same: the complete eradication of what Benjamin Franklin referred to as the “principal pillar of a free government.”

The courts haven’t stopped marching in lockstep with the police state. The courts continue to be dominated by technicians and statists who are deferential to authority, whether government or business. Indeed, the Supreme Court’s decisions in recent years have most often been characterized by an abject deference to government authority, military and corporate interests. They have run the gamut from suppressing free speech activities and justifying suspicionless strip searches to warrantless home invasions and conferring constitutional rights on corporations, while denying them to citizens.

Government bureaucrats haven’t stopped turning American citizens into criminals. The average American now unknowingly commits three felonies a day, thanks to an overabundance of vague laws that render otherwise innocent activity illegal, while reinforcing the power of the police state and its corporate allies.

The surveillance state hasn’t stopped spying on Americans’ communications, transactions or movements. On any given day, whether you’re walking through a store, driving your car, checking email, or talking to friends and family on the phone, you can be sure that some government agency, whether it’s your local police, a fusion center, the National Security Agency or one of the government’s many corporate partners, is still monitoring and tracking you.

The TSA hasn’t stopped groping or ogling travelers. Under the pretext of protecting the nation’s infrastructure (roads, mass transit systems, water and power supplies, telecommunications systems and so on) against criminal or terrorist attacks, TSA task forces (comprised of federal air marshals, surface transportation security inspectors, transportation security officers, behavior detection officers and explosive detection canine teams) continue to do random security sweeps of nexuses of transportation, including ports, railway and bus stations, airports, ferries and subways, as well as political conventions, baseball games and music concerts. Sweep tactics include the use of x-ray technology, pat-downs and drug-sniffing dogs, among other things.

Congress hasn’t stopped enacting draconian laws such as the USA Patriot Act and the NDAA. These laws—which completely circumvent the rule of law and the constitutional rights of American citizens, continue to re-orient our legal landscape in such a way as to ensure that martial law, rather than the rule of law, our U.S. Constitution, becomes the map by which we navigate life in the United States.

The Department of Homeland Security hasn’t stopped being a “wasteful, growing, fear-mongering beast.” Is the DHS capable of plotting and planning to turn the national guard into a federalized, immigration police force? No doubt about it. Remember, this is the agency that is notorious for militarizing the police and SWAT teams; spying on activists, dissidents and veterans; stockpiling ammunition; distributing license plate readers; contracting to build detention camps; tracking cell-phones with Stingray devices; carrying out military drills and lockdowns in American cities; using the TSA as an advance guard; conducting virtual strip searches with full-body scanners; carrying out soft target checkpoints; directing government workers to spy on Americans; conducting widespread spying networks using fusion centers; carrying out Constitution-free border control searches; funding city-wide surveillance cameras; and utilizing drones and other spybots.

The military industrial complex hasn’t stopped profiting from endless wars abroad. America’s expanding military empire continues to bleed the country dry at a rate of more than $15 billion a month (or $20 million an hour). The Pentagon spends more on war than all 50 states combined spend on health, education, welfare, and safety. Yet what most Americans fail to recognize is that these ongoing wars have little to do with keeping the country safe and everything to do with enriching the military industrial complex at taxpayer expense.

The Deep State’s shadow government hasn’t stopped calling the shots behind the scenes. Comprised of unelected government bureaucrats, corporations, contractors, paper-pushers, and button-pushers who are actually calling the shots behind the scenes, this government within a government continues to be the real reason “we the people” have no real control over our so-called representatives. It’s every facet of a government that is no longer friendly to freedom and is working overtime to trample the Constitution underfoot and render the citizenry powerless in the face of the government’s power grabs, corruption and abusive tactics.

And the American people haven’t stopped acting like gullible sheep. In fact, many Americans have been so carried away by their blind rank-and-file partisan devotion to their respective political gods that they have lost sight of the one thing that has remained constant in recent years: our freedoms are steadily declining.

Here’s the problem as I see it: “we the people” have become so trusting, so gullible, so easily distracted, so out-of-touch and so sure that our government will always do the right thing by us that we have ignored the warning signs all around us.

In so doing, we have failed to recognize such warning signs as potential red flags to use as opportunities to ask questions, demand answers, and hold our government officials accountable to respecting our rights and abiding by the rule of law.

Unfortunately, once a free people allows the government to make inroads into their freedoms, or uses those same freedoms as bargaining chips for security, it quickly becomes a slippery slope to outright tyranny. And it doesn’t really matter whether it’s a Democrat or a Republican at the helm, because the bureaucratic mindset on both sides of the aisle now seems to embody the same philosophy of authoritarian government.

As I make clear in my book Battlefield America: The War on the American People, this is what happens when you ignore the warning signs.

This is what happens when you fail to take alarm at the first experiment on your liberties.

This is what happens when you fail to challenge injustice and government overreach until the prison doors clang shut behind you.

In the American police state that now surrounds us, there are no longer such things as innocence, due process, or justice—at least, not in the way we once knew them. We are all potentially guilty, all potential criminals, all suspects waiting to be accused of a crime.

So you can try to persuade yourself that you are free, that you still live in a country that values freedom, and that it is not too late to make America great again, but to anyone who has been paying attention to America’s decline over the past 50 years, it will be just another lie.

The German people chose to ignore the truth and believe the lie.

They were not oblivious to the horrors taking place around them. As historian Robert Gellately points out, “[A]nyone in Nazi Germany who wanted to find out about the Gestapo, the concentration camps, and the campaigns of discrimination and persecutions need only read the newspapers.”

The warning signs were definitely there, blinking incessantly like large neon signs.

“Still,” Gellately writes, “the vast majority voted in favor of Nazism, and in spite of what they could read in the press and hear by word of mouth about the secret police, the concentration camps, official anti-Semitism, and so on. . . . [T]here is no getting away from the fact that at that moment, ‘the vast majority of the German people backed him.’”

Half a century later, the wife of a prominent German historian, neither of whom were members of the Nazi party, opined: “[O]n the whole, everyone felt well. . . . And there were certainly eighty percent who lived productively and positively throughout the time. . . . We also had good years. We had wonderful years.”

In other words, as long as their creature comforts remained undiminished, as long as their bank accounts remained flush, as long as they weren’t being discriminated against, persecuted, starved, beaten, shot, stripped, jailed and turned into slave labor, life was good.

This is how tyranny rises and freedom falls.

As Primo Levi, a Holocaust survivor observed, “Monsters exist, but they are too few in number to be truly dangerous. More dangerous are the common men, the functionaries ready to believe and to act without asking questions.”

Freedom demands responsibility.

Freedom demands that people stop sleep-walking through life, stop cocooning themselves in political fantasies, and stop distracting themselves with escapist entertainment.

Freedom demands that we stop thinking as Democrats and Republicans and start thinking like human beings, or at the very least, Americans.

Freedom demands that we not remain silent in the face of evil or wrongdoing but actively stand against injustice.

Freedom demands that we treat others as we would have them treat us. That is the law of reciprocity, also referred to as the Golden Rule, and it is found in nearly every world religion, including Judaism and Christianity.

In other words, if you don’t want to be locked up in a prison cell or a detention camp—if you don’t want to be discriminated against because of the color of your race, religion, politics or anything else that sets you apart from the rest—if you don’t want your loved ones shot at, strip searched, tasered, beaten and treated like slaves—if you don’t want to have to be constantly on guard against government eyes watching what you do, where you go and what you say—if you don’t want to be tortured, waterboarded or forced to perform degrading acts—if you don’t want your children to grow up in a world without freedom—then don’t allow these evils to be inflicted on anyone else, no matter how tempting the reason or how fervently you believe in your cause.

As German theologian and anti-Nazi dissident Dietrich Bonhoeffer observed, “We are not to simply bandage the wounds of victims beneath the wheels of injustice, we are to drive a spoke into the wheel itself.”

The Federal Reserve Cartel: The Eight Families

March 6th, 2017 by

Global Research, http://www.globalresearch.ca/index.php?context=va&aid=25080

by Dean Henderson

(Part one of a four-part series)

The Four Horsemen of Banking (Bank of America, JP Morgan Chase, Citigroup and Wells Fargo) own the Four Horsemen of Oil (Exxon Mobil, Royal Dutch/Shell, BP and Chevron Texaco); in tandem with Deutsche Bank, BNP, Barclays and other European old money behemoths. But their monopoly over the global economy does not end at the edge of the oil patch.

According to company 10K filings to the SEC, the Four Horsemen of Banking are among the top ten stock holders of virtually every Fortune 500 corporation.[1]

So who then are the stockholders in these money center banks?

This information is guarded much more closely. My queries to bank regulatory agencies regarding stock ownership in the top 25 US bank holding companies were given Freedom of Information Act status, before being denied on “national security” grounds. This is rather ironic, since many of the bank’s stockholders reside in Europe.

One important repository for the wealth of the global oligarchy that owns these bank holding companies is US Trust Corporation – founded in 1853 and now owned by Bank of America. A recent US Trust Corporate Director and Honorary Trustee was Walter Rothschild. Other directors included Daniel Davison of JP Morgan Chase, Richard Tucker of Exxon Mobil, Daniel Roberts of Citigroup and Marshall Schwartz of Morgan Stanley. [2]

  1. W. McCallister, an oil industry insider with House of Saud connections, wrote in The Grim Reaper that information he acquired from Saudi bankers cited 80% ownership of the New York Federal Reserve Bank- by far the most powerful Fed branch- by just eight families, four of which reside in the US. They are the Goldman Sachs, Rockefellers, Lehmans and Kuhn Loebs of New York; the Rothschilds of Paris and London; the Warburgs of Hamburg; the Lazards of Paris; and the Israel Moses Seifs of Rome.

CPA Thomas D. Schauf corroborates McCallister’s claims, adding that ten banks control all twelve Federal Reserve Bank branches. He names N.M. Rothschild of London, Rothschild Bank of Berlin, Warburg Bank of Hamburg, Warburg Bank of Amsterdam, Lehman Brothers of New York, Lazard Brothers of Paris, Kuhn Loeb Bank of New York, Israel Moses Seif Bank of Italy, Goldman Sachs of New York and JP Morgan Chase Bank of New York. Schauf lists William Rockefeller, Paul Warburg, Jacob Schiff and James Stillman as individuals who own large shares of the Fed. [3] The Schiffs are insiders at Kuhn Loeb. The Stillmans are Citigroup insiders, who married into the Rockefeller clan at the turn of the century.

Eustace Mullins came to the same conclusions in his book The Secrets of the Federal Reserve, in which he displays charts connecting the Fed and its member banks to the families of Rothschild, Warburg, Rockefeller and the others. [4]

The control that these banking families exert over the global economy cannot be overstated and is quite intentionally shrouded in secrecy. Their corporate media arm is quick to discredit any information exposing this private central banking cartel as “conspiracy theory”. Yet the facts remain.

The House of Morgan

The Federal Reserve Bank was born in 1913, the same year US banking scion J. Pierpont Morgan died and the Rockefeller Foundation was formed. The House of Morgan presided over American finance from the corner of Wall Street and Broad, acting as quasi-US central bank since 1838, when George Peabody founded it in London.

Peabody was a business associate of the Rothschilds. In 1952 Fed researcher Eustace Mullins put forth the supposition that the Morgans were nothing more than Rothschild agents. Mullins wrote that the Rothschilds, “…preferred to operate anonymously in the US behind the facade of J.P. Morgan & Company”. [5]

Author Gabriel Kolko stated, “Morgan’s activities in 1895-1896 in selling US gold bonds in Europe were based on an alliance with the House of Rothschild.” [6]

The Morgan financial octopus wrapped its tentacles quickly around the globe. Morgan Grenfell operated in London. Morgan et Ce ruled Paris. The Rothschild’s Lambert cousins set up Drexel & Company in Philadelphia.

The House of Morgan catered to the Astors, DuPonts, Guggenheims, Vanderbilts and Rockefellers. It financed the launch of AT&T, General Motors, General Electric and DuPont. Like the London-based Rothschild and Barings banks, Morgan became part of the power structure in many countries.

By 1890 the House of Morgan was lending to Egypt’s central bank, financing Russian railroads, floating Brazilian provincial government bonds and funding Argentine public works projects. A recession in 1893 enhanced Morgan’s power. That year Morgan saved the US government from a bank panic, forming a syndicate to prop up government reserves with a shipment of $62 million worth of Rothschild gold. [7]

Morgan was the driving force behind Western expansion in the US, financing and controlling West-bound railroads through voting trusts. In 1879 Cornelius Vanderbilt’s Morgan-financed New York Central Railroad gave preferential shipping rates to John D. Rockefeller’s budding Standard Oil monopoly, cementing the Rockefeller/Morgan relationship.

The House of Morgan now fell under Rothschild and Rockefeller family control. A New York Herald headline read, “Railroad Kings Form Gigantic Trust”. J. Pierpont Morgan, who once stated, “Competition is a sin”, now opined gleefully, “Think of it. All competing railroad traffic west of St. Louis placed in the control of about thirty men.”[8]

Morgan and Edward Harriman’s banker Kuhn Loeb held a monopoly over the railroads, while banking dynasties Lehman, Goldman Sachs and Lazard joined the Rockefellers in controlling the US industrial base. [9]

In 1903 Banker’s Trust was set up by the Eight Families. Benjamin Strong of Banker’s Trust was the first Governor of the New York Federal Reserve Bank. The 1913 creation of the Fed fused the power of the Eight Families to the military and diplomatic might of the US government. If their overseas loans went unpaid, the oligarchs could now deploy US Marines to collect the debts. Morgan, Chase and Citibank formed an international lending syndicate.

The House of Morgan was cozy with the British House of Windsor and the Italian House of Savoy. The Kuhn Loebs, Warburgs, Lehmans, Lazards, Israel Moses Seifs and Goldman Sachs also had close ties to European royalty. By 1895 Morgan controlled the flow of gold in and out of the US. The first American wave of mergers was in its infancy and was being promoted by the bankers. In 1897 there were sixty-nine industrial mergers. By 1899 there were twelve-hundred. In 1904 John Moody – founder of Moody’s Investor Services – said it was impossible to talk of Rockefeller and Morgan interests as separate. [10]

Public distrust of the combine spread. Many considered them traitors working for European old money. Rockefeller’s Standard Oil, Andrew Carnegie’s US Steel and Edward Harriman’s railroads were all financed by banker Jacob Schiff at Kuhn Loeb, who worked closely with the European Rothschilds.

Several Western states banned the bankers. Populist preacher William Jennings Bryan was thrice the Democratic nominee for President from 1896 -1908. The central theme of his anti-imperialist campaign was that America was falling into a trap of “financial servitude to British capital”. Teddy Roosevelt defeated Bryan in 1908, but was forced by this spreading populist wildfire to enact the Sherman Anti-Trust Act. He then went after the Standard Oil Trust.

In 1912 the Pujo hearings were held, addressing concentration of power on Wall Street. That same year Mrs. Edward Harriman sold her substantial shares in New York’s Guaranty Trust Bank to J.P. Morgan, creating Morgan Guaranty Trust. Judge Louis Brandeis convinced President Woodrow Wilson to call for an end to interlocking board directorates. In 1914 the Clayton Anti-Trust Act was passed.

Jack Morgan – J. Pierpont’s son and successor – responded by calling on Morgan clients Remington and Winchester to increase arms production. He argued that the US needed to enter WWI. Goaded by the Carnegie Foundation and other oligarchy fronts, Wilson accommodated. As Charles Tansill wrote in America Goes to War, “Even before the clash of arms, the French firm of Rothschild Freres cabled to Morgan & Company in New York suggesting the flotation of a loan of $100 million, a substantial part of which was to be left in the US to pay for French purchases of American goods.”

The House of Morgan financed half the US war effort, while receiving commissions for lining up contractors like GE, Du Pont, US Steel, Kennecott and ASARCO. All were Morgan clients. Morgan also financed the British Boer War in South Africa and the Franco-Prussian War. The 1919 Paris Peace Conference was presided over by Morgan, which led both German and Allied reconstruction efforts. [11]

In the 1930’s populism resurfaced in America after Goldman Sachs, Lehman Bank and others profited from the Crash of 1929. [12] House Banking Committee Chairman Louis McFadden (D-NY) said of the Great Depression, “It was no accident. It was a carefully contrived occurrence…The international bankers sought to bring about a condition of despair here so they might emerge as rulers of us all”.

Sen. Gerald Nye (D-ND) chaired a munitions investigation in 1936. Nye concluded that the House of Morgan had plunged the US into WWI to protect loans and create a booming arms industry. Nye later produced a document titled The Next War, which cynically referred to “the old goddess of democracy trick”, through which Japan could be used to lure the US into WWII.

In 1937 Interior Secretary Harold Ickes warned of the influence of “America’s 60 Families”. Historian Ferdinand Lundberg later penned a book of the exact same title. Supreme Court Justice William O. Douglas decried, “Morgan influence…the most pernicious one in industry and finance today.”

Jack Morgan responded by nudging the US towards WWII. Morgan had close relations with the Iwasaki and Dan families – Japan’s two wealthiest clans – who have owned Mitsubishi and Mitsui, respectively, since the companies emerged from 17th Century shogunates. When Japan invaded Manchuria, slaughtering Chinese peasants at Nanking, Morgan downplayed the incident. Morgan also had close relations with Italian fascist Benito Mussolini, while German Nazi Dr. Hjalmer Schacht was a Morgan Bank liaison during WWII. After the war Morgan representatives met with Schacht at the Bank of International Settlements (BIS) in Basel, Switzerland. [13]

The House of Rockefeller

BIS is the most powerful bank in the world, a global central bank for the Eight Families who control the private central banks of almost all Western and developing nations. The first President of BIS was Rockefeller banker Gates McGarrah- an official at Chase Manhattan and the Federal Reserve. McGarrah was the grandfather of former CIA director Richard Helms. The Rockefellers- like the Morgans- had close ties to London. David Icke writes in Children of the Matrix, that the Rockefellers and Morgans were just “gofers” for the European Rothschilds. [14]

BIS is owned by the Federal Reserve, Bank of England, Bank of Italy, Bank of Canada, Swiss National Bank, Nederlandsche Bank, Bundesbank and Bank of France.

Historian Carroll Quigley wrote in his epic book Tragedy and Hope that BIS was part of a plan, “to create a world system of financial control in private hands able to dominate the political system of each country and the economy of the world as a whole…to be controlled in a feudalistic fashion by the central banks of the world acting in concert by secret agreements.”

The US government had a historical distrust of BIS, lobbying unsuccessfully for its demise at the 1944 post-WWII Bretton Woods Conference. Instead the Eight Families’ power was exacerbated, with the Bretton Woods creation of the IMF and the World Bank. The US Federal Reserve only took shares in BIS in September 1994. [15]

BIS holds at least 10% of monetary reserves for at least 80 of the world’s central banks, the IMF and other multilateral institutions. It serves as financial agent for international agreements, collects information on the global economy and serves as lender of last resort to prevent global financial collapse.

BIS promotes an agenda of monopoly capitalist fascism. It gave a bridge loan to Hungary in the 1990’s to ensure privatization of that country’s economy. It served as conduit for Eight Families funding of Adolf Hitler- led by the Warburg’s J. Henry Schroeder and Mendelsohn Bank of Amsterdam. Many researchers assert that BIS is at the nadir of global drug money laundering. [16]

It is no coincidence that BIS is headquartered in Switzerland, favorite hiding place for the wealth of the global aristocracy and headquarters for the P-2 Italian Freemason’s Alpina Lodge and Nazi International. Other institutions which the Eight Families control include the World Economic Forum, the International Monetary Conference and the World Trade Organization.

Bretton Woods was a boon to the Eight Families. The IMF and World Bank were central to this “new world order”. In 1944 the first World Bank bonds were floated by Morgan Stanley and First Boston. The French Lazard family became more involved in House of Morgan interests. Lazard Freres- France’s biggest investment bank- is owned by the Lazard and David-Weill families- old Genoese banking scions represented by Michelle Davive. A recent Chairman and CEO of Citigroup was Sanford Weill.

In 1968 Morgan Guaranty launched Euro-Clear, a Brussels-based bank clearing system for Eurodollar securities. It was the first such automated endeavor. Some took to calling Euro-Clear “The Beast”. Brussels serves as headquarters for the new European Central Bank and for NATO. In 1973 Morgan officials met secretly in Bermuda to illegally resurrect the old House of Morgan, twenty years before Glass Steagal Act was repealed. Morgan and the Rockefellers provided the financial backing for Merrill Lynch, boosting it into the Big 5 of US investment banking. Merrill is now part of Bank of America.

John D. Rockefeller used his oil wealth to acquire Equitable Trust, which had gobbled up several large banks and corporations by the 1920’s. The Great Depression helped consolidate Rockefeller’s power. His Chase Bank merged with Kuhn Loeb’s Manhattan Bank to form Chase Manhattan, cementing a long-time family relationship. The Kuhn-Loeb’s had financed – along with Rothschilds – Rockefeller’s quest to become king of the oil patch. National City Bank of Cleveland provided John D. with the money needed to embark upon his monopolization of the US oil industry. The bank was identified in Congressional hearings as being one of three Rothschild-owned banks in the US during the 1870’s, when Rockefeller first incorporated as Standard Oil of Ohio. [17]

One Rockefeller Standard Oil partner was Edward Harkness, whose family came to control Chemical Bank. Another was James Stillman, whose family controlled Manufacturers Hanover Trust. Both banks have merged under the JP Morgan Chase umbrella. Two of James Stillman’s daughters married two of William Rockefeller’s sons. The two families control a big chunk of Citigroup as well. [18]

In the insurance business, the Rockefellers control Metropolitan Life, Equitable Life, Prudential and New York Life. Rockefeller banks control 25% of all assets of the 50 largest US commercial banks and 30% of all assets of the 50 largest insurance companies. [19] Insurance companies- the first in the US was launched by Freemasons through their Woodman’s of America- play a key role in the Bermuda drug money shuffle.

Companies under Rockefeller control include Exxon Mobil, Chevron Texaco, BP Amoco, Marathon Oil, Freeport McMoran, Quaker Oats, ASARCO, United, Delta, Northwest, ITT, International Harvester, Xerox, Boeing, Westinghouse, Hewlett-Packard, Honeywell, International Paper, Pfizer, Motorola, Monsanto, Union Carbide and General Foods.

The Rockefeller Foundation has close financial ties to both Ford and Carnegie Foundations. Other family philanthropic endeavors include Rockefeller Brothers Fund, Rockefeller Institute for Medical Research, General Education Board, Rockefeller University and the University of Chicago- which churns out a steady stream of far right economists as apologists for international capital, including Milton Friedman.

The family owns 30 Rockefeller Plaza, where the national Christmas tree is lighted every year, and Rockefeller Center. David Rockefeller was instrumental in the construction of the World Trade Center towers. The main Rockefeller family home is a hulking complex in upstate New York known as Pocantico Hills. They also own a 32-room 5th Avenue duplex in Manhattan, a mansion in Washington, DC, Monte Sacro Ranch in Venezuela, coffee plantations in Ecuador, several farms in Brazil, an estate at Seal Harbor, Maine and resorts in the Caribbean, Hawaii and Puerto Rico. [20]

The Dulles and Rockefeller families are cousins. Allen Dulles created the CIA, assisted the Nazis, covered up the Kennedy hit from his Warren Commission perch and struck a deal with the Muslim Brotherhood to create mind-controlled assassins. [21]

Brother John Foster Dulles presided over the phony Goldman Sachs trusts before the 1929 stock market crash and helped his brother overthrow governments in Iran and Guatemala. Both were Skull & Bones, Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) insiders and 33rd Degree Masons. [22]

The Rockefellers were instrumental in forming the depopulation-oriented Club of Rome at their family estate in Bellagio, Italy. Their Pocantico Hills estate gave birth to the Trilateral Commission. The family is a major funder of the eugenics movement which spawned Hitler, human cloning and the current DNA obsession in US scientific circles.

John Rockefeller Jr. headed the Population Council until his death. [23] His namesake son is a Senator from West Virginia. Brother Winthrop Rockefeller was Lieutenant Governor of Arkansas and remains the most powerful man in that state. In an October 1975 interview with Playboy magazine, Vice-President Nelson Rockefeller- who was also Governor of New York- articulated his family’s patronizing worldview, “I am a great believer in planning- economic, social, political, military, total world planning.”

But of all the Rockefeller brothers, it is Trilateral Commission (TC) founder and Chase Manhattan Chairman David who has spearheaded the family’s fascist agenda on a global scale. He defended the Shah of Iran, the South African apartheid regime and the Chilean Pinochet junta. He was the biggest financier of the CFR, the TC and (during the Vietnam War) the Committee for an Effective and Durable Peace in Asia- a contract bonanza for those who made their living off the conflict.

Nixon asked him to be Secretary of Treasury, but Rockefeller declined the job, knowing his power was much greater at the helm of the Chase. Author Gary Allen writes in The Rockefeller File that in 1973, “David Rockefeller met with twenty-seven heads of state, including the rulers of Russia and Red China.”

Following the 1975 Nugan Hand Bank/CIA coup against Australian Prime Minister Gough Whitlam, his British Crown-appointed successor Malcolm Fraser sped to the US, where he met with President Gerald Ford after conferring with David Rockefeller. [24]

In Reply to Fears About the “National Debt”

March 3rd, 2017 by

http://www.paulstramer.net/2017/03/trump-card-will-be-played-this-month-or.html

National DebtBy Anna Von Reitz

What people are missing — and Mr. Stockman, too — is that the “National Debt” is in fact falling, not rising anymore. 

How is that possible? 

Simple.  The “National Credit” is being applied to pay down the “National Debt“.

Last month, Winston Shrout applied $400 billion directly against the National Debt.  And that is just one man properly applying the remainder of a commercial claim against the so-called “National Debt”. 

As I have tried and tried to get through to people, there actually is no “National Debt”.  There is only a criminally mismanaged bookkeeping system.

In a monetary system based on Promissory Notes (I.O.U.’s aka “Federal Reserve Notes”) there is only one transaction possible and it is known as “passing the buck”.  When someone pays you with a debt (an I.O.U.) and you accept that debt as payment, a credit is created for him and a debt is accrued for you. 

You never get paid for anything until you “pass the buck”—and use that debt instrument as a means to receive something real in return.

Think about it in another way— every time a debt is created, so is an answering credit of equal amount.

The debts and credits naturally cancel each other out.  There cannot be a $20 Trillion dollar “National Debt” created without the existence of an answering and equal $20 Trillion “National Credit” being created.  

So what is all this horse-hooey about? 

The “United States Government” — as opposed to the American Government — has been very profligate.  It has borrowed and borrowed and avoided paying its debts and squandered money like a drunken sailor for decades, and in the process it has accrued a $20 Trillion dollar National Debt for itself. 

The American Government as a whole, meanwhile, has been very circumspect and diligent and has accrued no commensurate debts so that a $20 Trillion dollar National Credit (and a great deal more) has accrued on our side of the ledger. 

It’s time for the Internal Revenue Service to do the bookkeeping and zero out the “National Debt”.   It should be a routine process akin to balancing a check book, but instead it has been made into an excuse for fraud and theft on an unimaginable scale.

It’s also time for the vast majority of the members of the U.S. Congress to be sacked, thrown out on their ears, given a pink slip, sent home in dishonor, and held feet first to the fire for their gross lack of accountability, honesty, and competence.  

After having spent considerable time talking to members of the “U.S. Congress” I am convinced that most of them (1) have no idea how the government of the United States is supposed to work or fit within the framework of the American Government as a whole, (2) have no clear knowledge of how the government bookkeeping and accounting system is supposed to work, (3) and aside from knowing how to “appropriate” money for every unauthorized and questionable purpose in the western world, have no idea where the so-called money comes from, how it created, or anything else about it. 

A more brainless, irresponsible, unfocused, unaccountable, indecisive, self-absorbed, egotistical, crooked, and abominable assemblage of human flotsam than the “U.S. Congress” has seldom been collected on the face of the Earth.  One can only assume that Washington, District of Columbia, is the drain-hole of the world, and that the dregs of society have been dressed up in $2500 suits and trotted out as a joke.

Clearly, when the actual land jurisdiction states convene a Continental Congress and examine the topic of credentials and requirements for Congressmen and US Senators, having a brain and an I.Q. above 60 should be first on the list, followed by a solid understanding of how the American Government functions, followed by an equally solid grasp of basic economics, bookkeeping, and accounting.  Congress, after all, has the singular task of holding the purse-strings, and they have also very apparently failed to do so.

As for the political parties supporting such appallingly unqualified candidates for office, they should be universally despised as significantly worse than useless and self-interested. 

The whole idea of “political parties” was imported here by European immigrants cast out of their own countries for their participation in the 1848 Communist Worker’s Rebellion.  It is a foreign concept and practice being promoted by a foreign “government” services corporation that is under contract to us and our states to provide stipulated services.  None of the familiar political party frou-frou-rah  has anything to do with our actual and lawful government, except that the “United States” Incorporated has been criminally mismanaged and allowed to run rampant over the people and states that it is hired to serve and polarized by different political party platforms which serve special-interest agendas instead of seeking the Public Good..

As part of the much-needed overhaul and reform of the “Federal Government” as its functions pertain to our states of the union,  I believe that political parties should either be outlawed as seditious special interests or all political elections should be publically funded or both.  Continuing to allow the “end results” of two rival gangs’ selection process to control corporate offices that have such important duties to perform is nothing short of madness.  Elections for actual Public Offices must be resumed within the broader framework of the American Government and new restrictions and requirements must be imposed upon those offices and processes of the United States Government which affect us and our states.

Anyway, folks, next time someone starts prattling about the “National Debt”, be sure to cock an eyebrow and inquire— “What National Debt?”

THE CONSTITUTION

March 2nd, 2017 by

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

http://annavonreitz.com/theconstitution.pdf

CONSTITUTIONBy Anna Von Reitz

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

You are born as a member of a state militia.  

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

The one thing standing in their way is the Constitution.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

It wouldn’t and it didn’t. 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Olddogs Comments!

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

Ihre Papiere, Bitte! (Your Papers, Please): Are We Being Set Up for a National ID System?

 National ID

By John W. Whitehead
March 01, 2017

“The triumph of the S.S. demands that the tortured victim allow himself to be led to the noose without protesting, that he renounce and abandon himself to the point of ceasing to affirm his identity. And it is not for nothing. It is not gratuitously, out of sheer sadism, that the S.S. men desire his defeat. They know that the system which succeeds in destroying its victim before he mounts the scaffold . . . is incomparably the best for keeping a whole people in slavery.”—Hannah Arendt reporting on the trial of Adolf Eichmann

You can’t have it both ways.

You can’t live in a constitutional republic if you allow the government to act like a police state.

You can’t claim to value freedom if you allow the government to operate like a dictatorship.

You can’t expect to have your rights respected if you allow the government to treat whomever it pleases with disrespect and an utter disregard for the rule of law.

If you’re inclined to advance this double standard because you believe you have done nothing wrong and have nothing to hide, beware: there’s always a boomerang effect.

Whatever dangerous practices you allow the government to carry out now—whether it’s in the name of national security or protecting America’s borders or making America great again—rest assured, these same practices can and will be used against you when the government decides to set its sights on you.

Nothing is ever as simple as the government claims it is.

The war on drugs turned out to be a war on the American people, waged with SWAT teams and militarized police.

The war on terror turned out to be a war on the American people, waged with warrantless surveillance and indefinite detention.

The war on immigration will be yet another war on the American people, waged with roving government agents demanding “papers, please.”

So you see, when you talk about empowering government agents to demand identification from anyone they suspect might be an illegal immigrant—the current scheme being entertained by the Trump administration to ferret out and cleanse the country of illegal immigrants—what you’re really talking about is creating a society in which you are required to identify yourself to any government worker who demands it.

Just recently, in fact, passengers arriving in New York’s JFK Airport on a domestic flight from San Francisco were ordered to show their “documents” to border patrol agents in order to get off the plane.

This is how you pave the way for a national identification system.

Americans have always resisted adopting a national ID card for good reason: it gives the government and its agents the ultimate power to target, track and terrorize the populace according to the government’s own nefarious purposes.

National ID card systems have been used before, by other oppressive governments, in the name of national security, invariably with horrifying results.

For instance, in Germany, the Nazis required all Jews to carry special stamped ID cards for travel within the country. A prelude to the yellow Star of David badges, these stamped cards were instrumental in identifying Jews for deportation to death camps in Poland.

Author Raul Hilberg summarizes the impact that such a system had on the Jews:

The whole identification system, with its personal documents, specially assigned names, and conspicuous tagging in public, was a powerful weapon in the hands of the police. First, the system was an auxiliary device that facilitated the enforcement of residence and movement restrictions. Second, it was an independent control measure in that it enabled the police to pick up any Jew, anywhere, anytime. Third, and perhaps most important, identification had a paralyzing effect on its victims.

In South Africa during apartheid, pass books were used to regulate the movement of black citizens and segregate the population. The Pass Laws Act of 1952 stipulated where, when and for how long a black African could remain in certain areas. Any government employee could strike out entries, which cancelled the permission to remain in an area. A pass book that did not have a valid entry resulted in the arrest and imprisonment of the bearer.

Identity cards played a crucial role in the genocide of the Tutsis in the central African country of Rwanda. The assault, carried out by extremist Hutu militia groups, lasted around 100 days and resulted in close to a million deaths. While the ID cards were not a precondition to the genocide, they were a facilitating factor. Once the genocide began, the production of an identity card with the designation “Tutsi” spelled a death sentence at any roadblock.

Identity cards have also helped oppressive regimes carry out eliminationist policies such as mass expulsion, forced relocation and group denationalization. Through the use of identity cards, Ethiopian authorities were able to identify people with Eritrean affiliation during the mass expulsion of 1998. The Vietnamese government was able to locate ethnic Chinese more easily during their 1978-79 expulsion. The USSR used identity cards to force the relocation of ethnic Koreans (1937), Volga Germans (1941), Kamyks and Karachai (1943), Crimean Tartars, Meshkhetian Turks, Chechens, Ingush and Balkars (1944) and ethnic Greeks (1949). And ethnic Vietnamese were identified for group denationalization through identity cards in Cambodia in 1993, as were the Kurds in Syria in 1962.

And in the United States, post-9/11, more than 750 Muslim men were rounded up on the basis of their religion and ethnicity and detained for up to eight months. Their experiences echo those of 120,000 Japanese-Americans who were similarly detained 75 years ago following the attack on Pearl Harbor.

Despite a belated apology and monetary issuance by the U.S. government, the U.S. Supreme Court has yet to declare such a practice illegal. Moreover, laws such as the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) empower the government to arrest and detain indefinitely anyone they “suspect” of being an enemy of the state.

Fast forward to the Trump administration’s war on illegal immigration, and you have the perfect storm necessary for the adoption of a national ID card, the ultimate human tracking device, which would make the police state’s task of monitoring, tracking and singling out individual suspects—citizen and noncitizen alike—far simpler.

Granted, in the absence of a national ID card, “we the people” are already tracked in a myriad of ways: through our state driver’s licenses, Social Security numbers, bank accounts, purchases and electronic transactions; by way of our correspondence and communication devices—email, phone calls and mobile phones; through chips implanted in our vehicles, identification documents, even our clothing.

Add to this the fact that businesses, schools and other facilities are relying more and more on fingerprints and facial recognition to identify us. All the while, data companies such as Acxiom are capturing vast caches of personal information to help airports, retailers, police and other government authorities instantly determine whether someone is the person he or she claims to be.

This informational glut—used to great advantage by both the government and corporate sectors—is converging into a mandate for “an internal passport,” a.k.a., a national ID card that would store information as basic as a person’s name, birth date and place of birth, as well as private information, including a Social Security number, fingerprint, retina scan and personal, criminal and financial records.

The Real ID Act, which imposes federal standards on identity documents such as state drivers’ licenses, is the prelude to this national identification system. Individuals from states that fail to comply with the Real ID Act (there are nine states still not in compliance) will be unable to use their drivers’ licenses as forms of identification in airports starting in January 2018).

A federalized, computerized, cross-referenced, databased system of identification policed by government agents would be the final nail in the coffin for privacy (not to mention a logistical security nightmare that would leave Americans even more vulnerable to every hacker in the cybersphere).

So what is privacy?

In its purest sense, privacy means the right to walk down a street without fear of being accosted by a government agent demanding to know who you are, where you’re going and what you’re doing in that particular place at that particular moment in time.

Privacy means you have the right to tell any government agent who pokes his nose too far into your business to butt out.

Privacy means the right to remain anonymous, if you so choose.

Unfortunately, in an age of constant surveillance, in which we are constantly watched and our movements monitored and tracked—by our technology, by the government, by the corporations, and through our own obsession with social media and smart devices—the case for privacy is no longer quite so clear-cut.

Likewise, the penalty for telling the government to stick it (or mind its own business) is growing more severe with every passing day.

Noncompliance with a direct government order—whether that order is to show your papers, step out of a car, exit your house with your hands up, or bend over and submit to being searched, fondled or frisked—can now result in missed flights, broken bones and dead bodies.

Remember, the police state does not discriminate.

At some point, it will not matter whether your skin is black or yellow or brown or white. It will not matter whether you’re an immigrant or a citizen. It will not matter whether you’re rich or poor. It won’t even matter whether you’re driving, flying or walking.

After all, government-issued bullets will kill you just as easily whether you’re a law-abiding citizen or a hardened criminal. Government jails will hold you just as easily whether you’ve obeyed every law or broken a dozen. And whether or not you’ve done anything wrong, government agents will treat you like a suspect simply because they have been trained to view and treat everyone like potential criminals.

Eventually, when the police state has turned that final screw and slammed that final door, all that will matter is whether some government agent—poorly trained, utterly ignorant of the Constitution, way too hyped up on the power of their badges, and authorized to detain, search, interrogate, threaten and generally harass anyone they see fit—chooses to single you out for special treatment.

You see, it’s a short hop, skip and a jump from allowing government agents to stop and demand identification from someone suspected of being an illegal immigrant to empowering government agents to subject anyone—citizen and noncitizen alike—to increasingly intrusive demands that they prove not only that they are legally in the country, but that they are also lawful, in compliance with every statute and regulation on the books, and not suspected of having committed some crime or other.

It’s no longer a matter of if, but when.

You may be innocent of wrongdoing now, but when the standard for innocence is set by the government, no one is safe. Everyone is a suspect. And anyone can be a criminal when it’s the government determining what is a crime.

We’ve been having this same debate about the perils of government overreach for the past 50-plus years, and still we don’t seem to learn, or if we learn, we learn too late.

All of the excessive, abusive tactics employed by the government today—warrantless surveillance, stop and frisk searches, SWAT team raids, roadside strip searches, asset forfeiture schemes, private prisons, torture, indefinite detention, militarized police, etc.—started out as a seemingly well-meaning plan to address some problem in society that needed a little extra help.

Be careful what you wish for: you will get more than you bargained for, especially when the government’s involved.

In the case of a national identification system, it might start off as a means of curtailing illegal immigration, but it will end up as a means of controlling the American people.

Taking a prophetic cue from George Orwell’s 1984, a 2013 video game Papers, Please “puts players in control of an unnamed border agent in the fictional Eastern Bloc totalitarian state of Arstotzka in 1982.”

As journalist Jason Concepcion explains, “The rules are simple: Decide who can enter the country. This is accomplished by checking each traveler’s documents — passports, visas, work permits — for authenticity and cross-referencing with various guidelines handed down by the state. The state’s instructions are initially simple. Those holding Arstotzkan passports — assuming the information contained therein matches the person at the window — are considered citizens and may cross the border. Take out your green ACCEPTED stamp, mark the appropriate box on the entry visa, hand the owner back his or her documents, and call the next person in line.”

Where things start to get dicey is when the stakes get higher, when there’s money to be made, when there are lives on the line.

Concepcion continues:

As the game progresses, the restrictions on immigration become more complex. A trade war with a neighboring country causes the Ministry of Admission to ban travelers from the nation. Rumors of insurgent groups with forged documents mean every seal and stamp in an entry visa must be double-checked against those in your handbook. If a traveler is heavier than the weight indicated in their passport, then they must be questioned and X-rayed for contraband. Faces are checked against the state’s most-wanted list. Perhaps a prospective immigrant doesn’t resemble the photograph in their documents, in which case fingerprints must be taken and processed. With each passing day, there are more details to check. Some travelers don’t have the correct work visa, or have papers that would have been valid yesterday. These must be scrutinized closely.

Around day two or three on the job, one of the soldiers who guards the checkpoint steps to your window. He tells you he gets a bonus for each person processed for detention. He offers to cut you in. Criminals — sometimes even terrorists — attempt to pass through the Grestin checkpoint. But this is rare. Immigrants who haven’t kept abreast of the constant changes in state policy are much more common. Every now and again, a traveler comes to your booth with a heartrending story — a dying loved one, children they’ve never seen — but the wrong documentation. You could, easily and legally, hand a few of these people over to the guards and make a few bucks on the side.

This is what the banality of evil looks like, as described by historian Hannah Arendt.

Arendt explains: “The essence of totalitarian government, and perhaps the nature of every bureaucracy, is to make functionaries and mere cogs in the administrative machinery out of men, and thus to dehumanize them.”

How do you persuade people to just follow orders and carry out the dictates of a police state?

You turn them into mindless robots. You teach them to obey unquestioningly. You brainwash them into believing that compliance and patriotism go hand in hand.

As Concepcion concludes, “Papers, Please gives players a window into how fascism manifests itself in bureaucracy. The brilliance of the game’s paperwork gameplay is that it makes the player complicit in the projection of state power… ‘What I found making this game,’ [designer Lucas Pope explained], ‘is that this communist setting or this dystopian, fascist setting works nicely for game mechanics because you can tell the player, ‘you have to do this.’ There’s not a whole lot of questioning of, ‘why?’ ‘You have to do it because that’s how we … run things here, we tell you how to do it and you do it.’ That works perfectly well with the setting of some kind of communist government or some kind of bureaucracy where the rules just come down from the top and boom, that’s your job.’”

Boom. That’s your job.

That about sums things up, doesn’t it?

Yet as I make clear in my book Battlefield America: The War on the American People, it’s not just the border patrol agents or the police or the prison guards who are marching in lockstep with the regime. It’s also the populace that obeys every order, that fails to question or resist or push back against government dictates that are unjust or unconstitutional or immoral.

We have been down this road before.

Reporting on the trial of Nazi bureaucrat Adolf Eichmann for the New Yorker in 1963, Hannah Arendt describes the “submissive meekness with which Jews went to their death”:

arriving on time at the transportation points, walking under their own power to the places of execution, digging their own graves, undressing and making neat piles of their clothing, and lying down side by side to be shot—seemed a telling point, and the prosecutor, asking witness after witness, “Why did you not protest?,” “Why did you board the train?,” “Fifteen thousand people were standing there and hundreds of guards facing you—why didn’t you revolt and charge and attack these guards?,” harped on it for all it was worth. But the sad truth of the matter is that the point was ill taken, for no non-Jewish group or non-Jewish people had behaved differently.

The lessons of history are clear: chained, shackled and imprisoned in a detention camp, there is little chance of resistance. The time to act is now, before it’s too late. Indeed, there is power in numbers, but if those numbers will not unite and rise up against their oppressors, there can be no resistance.

As Arendt concludes, “under conditions of terror most people will comply but some people will not, just as the lesson of the countries to which the Final Solution was proposed is that ‘it could happen’ in most places but it did not happen everywhere.”

It does not have to happen here.

We do not have to condemn ourselves to life under an oppressive, authoritarian regime.

We do not have to become our own jailers.

We do not have to dig our own graves.

We do not have to submit.

The Final End of the Fraud – Hail, the Emperor’s New Clothes

February 27th, 2017 by

http://www.paulstramer.net/2017/02/the-final-end-of-fraud-hail-emperors.html

FRAUD

By Anna Von Reitz

The problem as I see it, is not lack of action— but lack of effective action— and also lack of understanding of how the fraud has been accomplished.

We now have it completely dissected, the entire mechanism scraped down to the bone for everyone to see.

What it amounts to is commercial fraud resulting in inland piracy and unlawful conversion of assets, all based on copyright and trademark infringement and identity theft.

The vexing question has always been, how to put an end to it?  How to deliver an answer simple and inexpensive enough for the poorest and most ignorant people to benefit—- for if we leave anyone behind, we leave open the door for our own eventual re-enslavement. 

Remedy has to be simple, cheap, easily understood, and easy to access.  What is it?

For Americans I believe it is as simple as “surrendering the PERSON” provided by the UNITED STATES, INC., thereby releasing oneself from any presumption of voluntary participation in the scam.

But to whom?  That is always the rub….. When one revokes an election to pay federal income taxes, one must notify the Commissioner of the Internal Revenue Service and the Commissioner of the IRS and now also the Commissioner of THE INTERNAL REVENUE SERVICE, past, present and future…..

Who do you notify when giving back the odious “gift” of a PERSON?  

The absolute source of the PERSON(S) is the DEPARTMENT OF COMMERCE, so it makes sense to notify the SECRETARY OF COMMERCE— but would you “surrender” a dangerous securitized PERSON to the SECRETARY OF COMMERCE?   Isn’t that a bit like handing Charles Manson over to Porky Pig? 

No, a notice to the SECRETARY OF COMMERCE who creates these noxious fictions and a notice to the SECRETARY OF AGRICULTURE who holds the liens against them—- that makes practical sense as a “due notice” but they cannot logically be the official responsible for cashiering the PERSON.

The answer is in the 1934 Emergency Banking Act—- the Secretary of the Treasury, used to be Jacob Lew and now, Mr. Mnuchin.

So that is the official responsible for “depositing” the PERSONS and we are the Bounty Hunters responsible for collecting and surrendering them as in “surrendering” a criminal or prisoner or in some cases, a coupon, voucher, or certificate……ah, a certificate, an insurance indemnity receipt……

This all goes back to whether you want to operate in commerce or in trade. 

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

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

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

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

The filthy vermin. 

This is how we were forced to operate in commerce and fraudulently subjected to the foreign federal government under delegated powers.  We granted them control of our commerce— not our trade— and this is how they contrived to beat us and rob us. 

The absolute bottom-of-the-barrel criminals operating as ELIZABETH II and FRANCISCUS are still profiting from this, and we can prove it beyond a shadow of a doubt.  They used their undeclared Foreign Agents, members of the Bar Associations, to implement this vile fraud against Americans and then also to collect the resulting unjust enrichment—- and we can prove that in spades, too. 

They funneled their ill-gotten gains through the Bank of New York Mellon, laundered it through the Vatican Bank, and then after the Pope got his cut, sent it back via the Bank of Canada so the Queen got her bit of the heist, and left the remainder for the politicians in DC to cut up and parcel out bribes and kick-backs to the Territorial “states” and “counties” as “federal revenue sharing”. 

Are you angry yet?  Title to your home and land and businesses has all been stolen by these vipers, even your DNA and your name has been stolen and copyrighted by these vicious prigs for their own benefit. 

But there IS a remedy.  You get an authenticated STATE OF WHATEVER copy of “YOUR” BIRTH CERTIFICATE and shove it up their rear by writing a few things in red ink on it and sending Mr. Mnuchin a Notice of Fiduciary Relationship otherwise known as IRS Form 56.

And that is the end of JOHN MICHAEL DOE and all “HIS” bogus debts, which you have been forced to pay off all your life.  You have returned him whence he came and there can no longer be any presumption that you are knowingly, willingly, “voluntarily” playing this game in which you give them everything and receive nothing but their debts in return.

When “JOHN MICHAEL DOE” goes down the tubes, so does the JOHN M. DOE (bankrupt) Public Transmitting Utility set up by Mr. Obummer.  Be sure and tell Mr. Mnuchin that you want the entire “US CITIZENSHIP ORGANIZATION” liquidated and credited to The United States of America account without recourse. 

And what is the Red Writing that you need to apply to the authenticated BIRTH CERTIFICATE? 

Without disturbing the rivets connecting the BC with the fancy authentication certificate from the Territorial “State of” Secretary of State, you need to take a red ink pen and on the upper left hand corner of the BC print: Accepted by Drawee— by: Your Signature and the date. 

Then on the back print: Pay to the Order of the United States of America, U.S. Treasury. Without Recourse. by: Your Signature and the date.

Send a cover letter along with the IRS Form 56 “Notice of Fiduciary Relationship” to Mr. Mnuchin and instruct him to open your credit account using the Registered Mail Number used to send him your packet containing the Form 56 and the Authenticated BC as the account number. 

This credit is what is owed to you and your ancestors who were bilked.  When you do this, the so-called “National Debt” is offset by the actual National Credit.

The Internal Revenue Service is the agency responsible for returning your credit and titles to your land and all your other property and is also responsible for prosecuting the rats who promulgated the unlawful seizure of your private assets to pay their public debts.

Tell Mr. Mnuchin that your claim is indemnified under subrogation by Private Registered Indemnity Bond  AMRI00001 and Payment Bond AMRI00003 RA393427653US.

Send it all to Mr. Mnuchin via Registered Mail, keeping a copy and all receipts for your records.

An effort needs to be mounted to force the immediate issuance of credit cards related to these accounts to the people who have been defrauded and abused all these years so as to expedite their timely receipt of credit due and put a stop to any further false claims and inconvenience resulting from the continued billing of utility and other bills to JOHN MICHAEL DOE and JOHN M. DOE and whatever other fictions they can dream up and offer as voo-doo doll DEBTORS.

Mr. Trump and the members of the “Congress” need to be truly lit up with the news that this fraud is at an end.

As for all the rest, report it to the Internal Revenue Service.

In Foreclosure?  Facing criminal “charges”? 

These vermin have been double-dipping and robbing you and not reporting the “extra” income.  They’ve been making false claims on abandonment and seizing hidden escrow bond accounts held in your NAME.  They’ve been “securitizing” you as a slave, right down to your DNA and your name and selling “YOU” on the open market.

If you aren’t ready to spit, you surely ought to be.

The Roman Pontiff’s private Bill Collectors duded up and impersonating judges so as to provide “an appearance of justice” under “Federal Rules of Civil Procedure”—har, har, har!—-have been eating out your substance like moths for decades and not paying their taxes. 

Imagine that?

Sounds like the Internal Revenue Service ought to be notified.

The New Wave Of Violent Protests Is Exactly What The Elite – Want Here’s Why

February 23rd, 2017 by

http://www.alt-market.com/articles/3131-the-new-wave-of-violent-protests-is-exactly-what-the-elite-want-heres-why

WARThis article was written by Chase Rachels and originally published at The Free Thought Project

Over the past 18 months, there has been a significant increase in the frequency and severity of riots conducted by the extreme left.  Their ranks are comprised of self-described anti-fascists,  anarcho-communists, radical 3rd wave feminists, Black Lives Matter (BLM), and other social justice warriors (SJWs).  They have attained great notoriety through their willingness to employ violence/intimidation, vandalize/loot private property, and engage in the very same behavior they accuse their ideological opponents of perpetrating.  Tragically, innocent and non-interested bystanders often get caught in the cross hairs whilst they throw their violent temper tantrums.  To add further cause for concern, these otherwise marginal groups are coalescing under the banner of “intersectionality” thereby effecting a swelling of their ranks, temerity, and menace.

However, as Professor Matthew Feinberg of the University of Toronto recently published a study confirming “extreme protest tactics reduce popular support for social movements.” Violent and destructive protests render peaceful protestors inept and guilty by association. The following summarizes the results of the study in greater detail:

“Social movements are critical agents of change that vary greatly in both tactics and popular support. Prior work shows that extreme protest tactics – actions that are highly counter-normative, disruptive, or harmful to others, including inflammatory rhetoric, blocking traffic, and damaging property – are effective for gaining publicity. However, we find across three experiments that extreme protest tactics decreased popular support for a given cause because they reduced feelings of identification with the movement. Though this effect obtained in tests of popular responses to extreme tactics used by animal rights, Black Lives Matter, and anti-Trump protests (Studies 1-3), we found that self-identified political activists were willing to use extreme tactics because they believed them to be effective for recruiting popular support (Studies 4a & 4b). The activist’s dilemma – wherein tactics that raise awareness also tend to reduce popular support – highlights a key challenge faced by social movements struggling to affect progressive change.”

To further illustrate the nature of such protests/riots a brief outline and analysis of the more notable examples will be provided in the following sections.

Berkeley Students Racist Barricade

In late October of 2016, a number of angry Berkeley SJWs barricaded a key bridge on campus to physically bar any white people from crossing.   The objective of the protest was to secure more segregated spaces for people of color a.k.a. “spaces of color”.  Any white person who attempted to breach the barricade was violently denied.  The group also saw fit to post faux eviction notices on a private bookstore with the threat that “community action will continue to escalate” lest they cede the location to the student protesters for the purpose of transforming it into a “space of color.”  Though obvious, it is worth explicitly recognizing the utter hypocrisy of this allegedly “anti-racist” group employing violence and threats against others based merely on the color of their skin for the sake of securing racially segregated spaces.

Berkeley Anti-Milo Riot

Riots erupted on February 1st, 2017 at the University of California at Berkeley over the arrival of the conservative celebrity and self-described “dangerous faggot” Milo Yiannopoulos. So-called anti-fascists and other SJWs were inciting mass violence, vandalism, and hysteria in order to prevent the gay interracial loving Jewish foreigner from peacefully expressing a political opinion that differs from their own. They firebombed the location where Milo’s event was to take place, pepper sprayed a female while being interviewed (and who was ironically offering words of respect to the non-violent protestors who showed up), burned Milo effigies, beat Milo supporters unconscious, and even violated neutral yet curious bystanders. It has repeatedly been made clear that as soon as a person of color, queer, woman, or Muslim expresses non-leftist/non-egalitarian views, the left will treat him/her with the same or even greater level of disdain and prejudice they accuse “right leaning” bogeymen of.

Yes, Yiannopoulos is a troll and says things to rile up the masses, but meeting free speech with violence only serves to empower your opposition.

Free speech was stomped on by the radical left at the birthplace of the free speech movement. The poorly named “anti-fascists” (a.k.a antifas) were the ones leading the violent charge to silence and censor the gay Jew. If the irony weren’t thick enough, the topic of Milo’s discussion was a critical examination of “cultural appropriation,” yet it seems the antifas took no issue with culturally appropriating the tactics of fascists and Nazis.

Presidential Inauguration Riots

On January 20, 2017, in Washington D.C. several hundred antifas, anarcho-communists, and other radical leftists came together to protest the presidential inauguration of Donald Trump.  To the dismay of peaceful protestors and Trump supporters alike, the radical leftist rioters quickly resorted to tactics of violence and vandalism.  Many were caught throwing bricks and blocks of concrete, breaking the windows of private businesses, violently clashing with and intimidating Trump supporters, setting cars on fire, and harassing defenseless trash cans. Before the day was done, over 200 rioters would be arrested.  One may rest assured that engaging in such public, juvenile, and violent behavior is the surest way to secure a second term for the controversial commander in chief.

Black Lives Matter (BLM) Riots

While most Black Lives Matter protests across the country remain entirely peaceful the majority of the time, some of them, often with the help of outside instigators devolve into utter chaos. Examples of this chaos happened in August and September of 2016, when violent BLM protests devolved and riots broke out in Milwaukee, WI and Charlotte, NC respectively. In Milwaukee, BLM rioters set fires to gas stations, auto parts stores, banks, and several other businesses.  There were also reports of rioters firing off guns, hurling bricks, and looting local grocery stores.

In Charlotte, BLM chaos erupted after a black police officer shot a black man. Rioters responded by shutting down an interstate and setting it ablaze, looting several private businesses, throwing rocks at random motorists, and even targeting white people for beat downs simply for being white. It’s fairly safe to say that if your cause is to diminish the ill effects that racism has on society and your community, then it’s probably best not to burn down local productive enterprises, hinder your community’s ability to travel safely, and beat down any white person you can find with extreme prejudice.

Women’s March

On January 21st, 2017 more than 2.5 million protestors participated in the worldwide “Women’s March” whose aim was to promote human, civil, and reproductive rights.  Unlike the other examples, this protest was largely absent the more injurious elements of violence and intimidation. However, many of the same themes were promoted and other off-putting tactics used thus a brief examination is warranted.

Perhaps the most paradoxical feature of the protest was the ubiquitous presence of both vagina attire (ranging from subtle vagina shaped/colored headwear to ostentatious full bodied vagina costumes) and anti-“islamophobia” themes.

It’s amusing to consider how the average Muslim, in his capacity as a Muslim, would be absolutely mortified upon encountering a woman dressed as a giant pubic hair infested vagina.  Such a costume must be the antithesis of the hijab.

Beyond this, of course, the majority of the march’s themes were anti-libertarian as they included support for anti-discrimination laws, tax-funded healthcare, and the subsidization of both contraceptives and abortion.  It should go without saying that all such measures entail both theft and private property violations.  Thus, to say this was a march for liberty would be a gross misnomer.  It was instead a march for entitlements funded at liberty’s expense.

Conclusion

If one is sincerely opposed to racism, sexism, and fascism then it may be best for him to refrain from engaging in racist, sexist, and fascist means to support his cause.  The fact these radical leftist factions utilize such means indicates a more sinister and subtle objective than the purported one of “social justice.” And unfortunately, any legitimate peaceful protests to stop injustice will be deemed illegitimate and the cause ignored as it will be immediately associated with violence. Aside from the societal damage created by such violence and intolerance, this divisive and obstinate environment plays right into the hands of those who want to keep you under control.

When objectively assessed, these violent protests are revealed as being among the most bigoted, hateful, and dangerous threats to the cause of liberty.

Stupid self centered fools looking for attention
written by Olddog , February 22, 2017

At 76 years of age I conclude that it is way past time for the breakup of the nation that was never supposed to exist. Americans have been hoodwinked from the get go as the global powers that be have from before the beginning colluded to gain total control of natural resources and our money. They have empowered themselves to claim ownership of all Americans just like the days of slavery. All that has changed is Americans do not know that they were supposed to be sovereign State Nations. The good life that good jobs created was thought to be eternal and no preparations were made to guarantee a life of plenty. All this resulted in a massive intellectual decline as the good life led us into complacency. Now the Banking Cartels have us by the short hairs through promoting divisive civil theology and will soon create another civil war to further bankrupt everyone. It takes big money to give birth to a new form of governance and a universal comprehension of the only way to remain freemen. Let the scumbags riot all they want because the bankers will not reward them. They are just stupid self centered fools looking for attention. While digging they’re own graves.

ONLY FOOLS TRUST GOVERNMENT ACADEMIA AND THE MEDIA

GOVERNMENTBy Ron Ewart
February 22, 2017
NewsWithViews.com

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

What Are Unalienable Rights?

February 21st, 2017 by

https://dumpdc.wordpress.com/2011/10/30/what-are-unalienable-rights/

by Russell D. Longcore
Owner and Editor, DumpDC.com

I don’t think I’ve ever seen an expansive article about unalienable rights. We all seem to just refer to the Declaration of Independence and what Jefferson wrote, and then defer to it. But natural law and unalienable rights are where it all starts.

Thomas Jefferson wrote: “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, and are endowed by their Creator with certain Unalienable Rights… Self-Evident. Obvious. Perhaps it was self-evident to the 18th Century common man, but I submit to you that the common 21st Century mind is not equally equipped. Much of the wisdom of the ages has been withheld from the modern man by the government schools. And why not? If you were a government, both tasked by The People to educate them and controlled by the same People, why teach generation after generation how to control you? Why not teach those generations how to be controlled? Self-evident truths bow to governmental self-preservation when The People aren’t watching vigilantly.

Building a tower requires building a firm foundation FIRST…or your tower goes over when the winds blow hard. Gentle readers, we’re in a CAT 5 hurricane right now that’s going to take down our American tower. If you do not have a working understanding of unalienable rights, you’ll likely fall for the next iteration of oppressive, tyrannical government foisted upon an uneducated populace who move their lips when they read. And if you don’t truly understand this philosophy, you cannot possibly teach it to your young.

Unalienable rights are also known as Natural Law or Absolute Rights. In this article these terms will be interchangeable. Also, the use of a male pronoun or the word “man” means all humans.

We begin with a definition of “Unalienable:”

“Unalienable: incapable of being alienated, that is, sold and transferred.” Black’s Law Dictionary, Sixth Edition, page 1523. One cannot sell, transfer or surrender unalienable rights. The Creator bestowed them on every individual. All human beings possess unalienable rights. Unalienable rights cannot be taken nor surrendered but they can be simply ignored. This is a little like the story Jesus told about the prodigal son. A recalcitrant son learns through tough lessons that he cannot escape his father’s love nor his rights as his father’s son.

But can we find natural human rights without a recognition of a Creator? Yes, without a doubt. What you’ll learn here about Natural Law dwells in the heart of every human being simply because he exists. The concept of Unalienable Rights is life-affirming whether or not you believe in a Higher Power, since the concept showcases the uniqueness of the human being in this world. Unalienable Rights are the highest form of humanness while at the same time the most elementary of man’s characteristics.

Unalienable or Inalienable?

There is a very serious error made throughout America as related to Unalienable Rights. That is, that many people use the term “Inalienable Rights” and think that the terms are interchangeable. But they are as different as night and day.

Inalienable Rights: Rights which are not capable of being surrendered or transferred without the consent of the one possessing such rights. Morrison v. State, Mo. App., 252 S.W.2d 97, 101.

Inalienable rights can be transferred, sold or surrendered if you give your consent. Inalienable rights are not bestowed by the Creator or inherent in humans. ”Persons” have inalienable rights, and the word “Person” is a legal term¹. Inalienable rights can be bestowed to persons by government, and can be likewise removed from persons by government. At times, government itself can be considered a “Person” in a legal sense. Most state constitutions recognize only inalienable rights.

Therefore, because we possess Unalienable Rights, endowed by our Creator, to secure these rights(not grant or create them), “Governments are instituted among men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed.”² And the rights we bestow upon government are the Inalienable Rights that we all possess that can be transferred to other persons.

We’re going to build this like a pyramid, much like the Hierarchy of Needs developed by Professor Abraham Maslow, Ph.D. He placed the bedrock human needs as the base of the pyramid, these being the most fundamental needs upon which all others are built. Physiological needs are first, simple survival of the human body. Next up comes Safety, then Love, Esteem, then Self-actualization as the headstone.

FREEDOM

Maslow’s Hierarchy Of Needs

I don’t have a cool graphic for Unalienable Rights, so you’ll just have to look at Maslow’s pyramid and use your imagination. It won’t be all that hard.

The Right of Life

When Thomas Jefferson wrote of “certain Unalienable Rights,” he placed them in the proper order, with Life being the first and most basic of all. This is the right to simply exist as a sentient being…one able to perceive sensations, a consciousness. Unalienable rights come into being at the moment that a human becomes a human. I do not mean when the individual becomes a viable human, capable of life outside the womb. Both sides of the abortion issue agree that a zygote…a human female egg fertilized by a male sperm…is human, and that every day after it becomes an embryo for about 270 days it is human. Our right to life means our right to express our humanness and to simply be alive. The opposite is the death of a human being. The right to life gets very complicated, since none of us were able to leave the womb and live without assistance, sustenance and support. An argument about embryonic viability here entirely misses the point, since even post-birth humans need daily care until at least age 5 (or 10) or they will likely die. So along with our own innate right to life, we acknowledge our responsibility to assist other human life to exist and express itself. Maslow pointed to the need of breathing, food, water, sleep, sex, homeostasis and excretion…all part of maintaining life, and without any one of those needs, life would eventually stop. Note here that the right of life is seldom exercised individually, but is inextricably tied to the lives of others.

Right of Personal Security

The next step up the Unalienable Rights pyramid is the right to protect one’s very life and bodily existence. And by acknowledging the duties we have to others to whom we give life…our progeny…we extend the right to protect their lives also. Personal security first means that our bodies are safe from harm. That security encompasses both protection by others while we are unable to secure our own safety and protecting ourselves and our loved ones after we become capable of assuring our own safety. Note here that the right of personal security is seldom exercised individually, but is inextricably tied to the safety of others. The Second Amendment has its foundation in this unalienable human right, relying upon it to secure a free state through the use of a militia. The Second Amendment is not the “right” to keep and bear arms. It is the restriction on Congress to violate the Unalienable Right of Personal Security. Both the 4th, 5th and 14th Amendments were supposed to secure this Right.

The Right of Labor

The first manifestation of the greater Right of Property is found in the Right of Labor. Every human being owns the work of his own mind and hands, and any hindrance to his employing his mental and physical ability in whatever method he thinks proper, without causing injury to another individual, would be a violation of the Right of Labor. This right will be found in Maslow’s Safety block.

Right to Acquire and Enjoy Property

“Without property rights, no other rights are possible. Since man has to sustain his life by his own effort, the man who has no right to the product of his effort has no means to sustain his life. The man who produces while others dispose of his product is a slave.” Ayn Rand, The Virtue of Selfishness

This Right touches all of the other Unalienable Rights. First, a human fully possesses his own body, and may do with it what he pleases, as long as his choices do not violate the property rights of another human. Next, man owns his labor and may use his labor for his own subsistence. He may use his labor as an expression of value or a medium of exchange, and may freely exchange that value to acquire property. Then he may have quiet enjoyment of his property according to any manner that best reflects his happiness. Property may take the form of physical assets, but may also be less tangible assets like intellectual property. Property rights mean ownership and control, which includes the right to use an asset as well as the right to prohibit others from using the asset. Property rights also allow the owner to determine the value of an asset, and to even destroy an asset if he so chooses. The only restriction on the Unalienable Right of Property is that it does not infringe upon the Unalienable Rights of others.

As John Locke stated in The Second Treatise on Government (1690) “The great and chief end therefore of men uniting into commonwealths, and putting themselves under government, is the preservation of property.” What man would willingly join a society that did not protect his enjoyment of the fruits of his own labor?

In The Wealth of Nations (1776), Adam Smith states that “private property created a role for government in defending property (rights), and the existence of government created the security to stimulate the creation of new property.” Many today wonder why the economies of the nations are in such dreadful shape. But most governments around the world are undermining property rights, the very reason for their existence. When there is no predictability in the marketplace, and individuals are preyed upon by governments, the incentive for creating new property is diminished or altogether extinguished. Those still seeking to create new property will migrate to the governments that best protect property rights. That’s why capital is leaving America for foreign locations and will continue to do so.

Right to Contract

This Unalienable Right gives all individuals the liberty to voluntarily enter into contract with any other individual or group of individuals, so long as there is agreement as to the terms of the contract by all parties involved, and so long as the contractual agreement does not violate another individual’s Unalienable Rights. Therefore, in light of property rights, individuals may sell their labor to an employer at mutually agreeable terms. Individuals may profit from the disposition of other property by mutual agreement.

All Unalienable Rights preceded the establishment of governments. However, governments chafe mightily under this Right. In America, the years 1897 to 1937 were a 40-year period in which the US Supreme Court vigorously protected the Right to Contract. This period of time is called the “Lochner years,” referring to Lochner v. New York (1905). In Lochner, the High Court struck down a New York statute that set maximum working hours. Justice Rufus Peckham, writing for the majority, stated that the Due Process Clauses found in the 5th and 14th Amendments were stout enough to protect the Unalienable Right to Contract, and that the State of New York had no business restricting the hours that an employee and employer may agree to. After 1937, the Court has relentlessly attacked the Right to Contract, supporting laws like the minimum wage and child labor statutes. Most of the burdensome Federal regulations are attacks on the Right to Contract, since they require parties to contracts to perform acts that they would likely not agree to if given a choice.

Right of Free Speech

This is the freedom to speak freely, provided that your speech does not violate the free speech of other individuals. The Right of Free Speech is an absolute right, subject to no other restrictions than another individual’s Unalienable Rights. Naturally, your liberty to speak does not allow for libel, slander, fraud or falsehood. This is another Unalienable Right which governments despise, and most governments do not allow untrammeled free speech. And free speech may take many forms, such as spoken, written, printed and performed.

Right of Beliefs or Conscience

Individuals have an Unalienable Right to believe what they wish, to worship as their conscience dictates, or as a negative right, to not believe or not worship as their conscience dictates.

Right of Personal Liberty

The classical liberal (the good kind) concept of personal liberty is as a moral principle in which an individual is free to govern himself, his life and his property without outside compulsion, force or fraud, provided that his personal governance does not intrude upon or violate the liberty of another individual.

Right to the Pursuit of Happiness

“Striving to find meaning in one’s life is the primary motivational force in man.” ~ Dr. Viktor Frankl, 1992

The Pursuit of Happiness provides the vehicle through which man can find life’s meaning.

The Pursuit of Happiness would be found on Maslow’s pyramid at the very top as a Self-Actualization need. But this Right encapsulates all the other Rights and cannot be accomplished until the other Unalienable Rights are in place and utilized. Your pursuit of happiness would be short-circuited if you do not enjoy the Rights to Life, Labor, Property, Contract, Belief and Liberty.

To understand how this phrase “the pursuit of happiness” found its way into the Declaration of Independence, you must know some background about Thomas Jefferson. He was strongly influenced by the Greek philosopher Epicurus, even referring to himself as an Epicurean. The teacher’s philosophy was simple: if you cultivated close personal relationships, limited your desires to the necessities of life, and found joy in the moment, you would find happiness. Everything in moderation.

Conclusion

Think about a Being that creates humans, then endows them with Unalienable Rights simply because they are human, and the pinnacle of their Rights being the Right to the Pursuit of Happiness! Not its attainment, but the pursuit. The Creator is no cosmic Joker, playing a cynical game by creating a desire in the breast of each human being for happiness, but having no available tools to meet the desire. We are endowed with the desire, the ability and the Unalienable Rights necessary to live a life of purpose and meaning, and to pass on those purposes and those meanings to subsequent generations, all seeking the same outcomes.

Share this article with those you love. Then discuss it. Teach your children these lessons so they understand how the Creator meant for them to live. Understanding your Unalienable Rights will give you a reason to live, a gratefulness to your Creator, and true self-esteem based in reality.

¹The Declaration of Independence by Thomas Jefferson, 1776.

²PERSON. This word is applied to men, women and children, who are called natural persons. In law, man and person are not exactly synonymous terms. Any human being is a man, whether he be a member of society or not, whatever may be the rank he holds, or whatever may be his age, sex, &c. A person is a man considered according to the rank he holds in society, with all the rights to which the place he holds entitles him, and the duties which it imposes. 1 Bouv. Inst. n. 137.
2. It is also used to denote a corporation which is an artificial person. 1 Bl. Com. 123; 4 Bing. 669; C. 33 Eng. C. L R. 488; Woodes. Lect. 116; Bac. Us. 57; 1 Mod. 164.
3. But when the word “Persons” is spoken of in legislative acts, natural persons will be intended, unless something appear in the context to show that it applies to artificial persons. 1 Scam. R. 178.
4. Natural persons are divided into males, or men; and females or women. Men are capable of all kinds of engagements and functions, unless by reasons applying to particular individuals. Women cannot be appointed to any public office, nor perform any civil functions, except those which the law specially declares them capable of exercising. Civ. Code of Louis. art. 25.
5. They are also sometimes divided into free persons and slaves. Freemen are those who have preserved their natural liberty, that is to say, who have the right of doing what is not forbidden by the law. A slave is one who is in the power of a master to whom he belongs. Slaves are sometimes ranked not with persons but things. But sometimes they are considered as persons for example, a negro is in contemplation of law a person, so as to be capable of committing a riot in conjunction with white men. 1 Bay, 358. Vide Man.
6. Persons are also divided into citizens, (q.v.) and aliens, (q.v.) when viewed with regard to their political rights. When they are considered in relation to their civil rights, they are living or civilly dead; vide Civil Death; outlaws; and infamous persons.
7. Persons are divided into legitimates and bastards, when examined as to their rights by birth.
8. When viewed in their domestic relations, they are divided into parents and children; husbands and wives; guardians and wards; and masters and servants son, as it is understood in law, see 1 Toull. n. 168; 1 Bouv. Inst. n. 1890, note.

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

The Globalists Strike Back With A Major Push Toward A Cashless Society

February 18th, 2017 by

http://theeconomiccollapseblog.com/archives/the-globalists-strike-back-with-a-major-push-toward-a-cashless-society

Cashless SocietyBy Michael Snyder

Their agenda may be on the rocks in the United States at the moment, but that doesn’t mean that the globalists are giving up.  In fact, a major push toward a cashless society is being made in the European Union right now.  Last May we learned that the 500 euro note is being completely eliminated, and just a few weeks ago the European Commission released a new “Action Plan” which instructs member states to explore “potential upper limits to cash payments”.  In the name of “fighting terrorism”, this “Action Plan” discusses the benefits of “prohibitions for cash payments above a specific threshold” and it says that those prohibitions should include “virtual currencies (such as BitCoin) and prepaid instruments (such as pre-paid credit cards) when they are used anonymously.”

This new document does not mention what an appropriate threshold would be for member states, but we do know that Spain already bans certain cash transactions above 2,500 euros, and Italy and France already ban cash transactions above 1,000 euros.

This is a perfect way to transition to a cashless society without creating too much of an uproar.  By setting a maximum legal level for cash transactions and slowly lowering it, in effect you can slowly but surely phase cash out without people understanding what is happening.

And there are many places in Europe where it is very difficult to even use cash at this point.  In Sweden, many banks no longer take or give out cash, and approximately 95 percent of all retail transactions are entirely cashless.  So even though Sweden has not officially banned cash, using cash is no longer practical in most situations.  In fact, many tourists are shocked to find out that they cannot even pay bus fare with cash.

So most of Europe is already moving in this direction, and now this new Action Plan is intended to accelerate the transition toward a cashless society.  The public is being told that these measures are being taken to fight money laundering and terrorism, but of course that is only a small part of the truth.  The following comes from the Anti-Media

The European Action Plan doesn’t mention a specific dollar amount for restrictions, but as expected, their reasoning for the move is to thwart money laundering and the financing of terrorism. Border checks between countries have already been bolstered to help implement these new standards on hard assets. Although these end goals are plausible, there are other clear motivations for governments to target paper money that aren’t as noble.

In a truly cashless society, governments would be able to track where everybody is and what everybody is doing all the time.  And in order to have access to the cashless system, people would have to comply with whatever requirements governments wanted to impose on their helpless populations.  The potential for tyranny that this would create would be off the charts, but very few people seem greatly alarmed by the move toward a cashless system all over the globe.

Even in the United States there are calls for a cashless system.  For example, the former chief economist for the IMF wrote an article for the Wall Street Journal not too long ago in which he recommended the elimination of the $100 bill

“There is little debate among law-enforcement agencies that paper currency, especially large notes such as the U.S. $100 bill, facilitates crime: racketeering, extortion, money laundering, drug and human trafficking, the corruption of public officials, not to mention terrorism. There are substitutes for cash—cryptocurrencies, uncut diamonds, gold coins, prepaid cards—but for many kinds of criminal transactions, cash is still king. It delivers absolute anonymity, portability, liquidity and near-universal acceptance.”

Over in Asia restrictions are being put on cash as well.  Legendary investor Jim Rogers commented on what is currently happening in India during one recent podcast

The time will come when you won’t be able to buy a cup of coffee without being traced, warns investment guru Jim Rogers. To control people, governments will increasingly seek to hunt down cash spending, he adds.

“Governments are always looking out for themselves first, and it’s the same old thing that has been going on for hundreds of years. The Indians recently did the same thing. They withdrew 86 percent of the currency in circulation, and they have now made it illegal to spend more than, I think it’s about $4,000 in any cash transaction. In France you cannot use more than, I think it’s a €1,000,” said Rogers in an interview with MacroVoices Podcast.

The reason why this is taking place all over the planet is because this is a global agenda.

The globalists ultimately plan to completely eliminate cash, and this will give them an unprecedented level of control over humanity.

One thing that many fear may someday be implemented is some form of microchip identification system.  In order to access the cashless grid, you would need your “ID chip” so that the system could positively identify you, but of course there are millions of people around the world that do not intend to get chipped under any circumstances.

In the old days, you would be labeled a “conspiracy theorist” just for suggesting that they may try to chip all of us one day, but in 2017 things have completely changed.

Just look at what is happening in Nevada.  A bill has been introduced in the state senate that would outlaw the “forced microchipping of people”

State Sen. Becky Harris said a bill to prohibit forced microchipping of people is not as far-fetched as it might seem, because it happens in some places around the world.

Senate Bill 109 would make it a Class C felony to require someone to be implanted with a radio frequency identifier, such as microchips placed in pets.

The idea for the bill came from a constituent, the Las Vegas Republican said.

If that sounds very strange to you, then you may not know that companies all around the globe are already starting to explore this type of technology.  For instance, a company in Belgium called NewFusion has actually begun to microchip their employees

In a move that could be lifted straight from science fiction, workers at a Belgian marketing firm are being offered the chance to have microchips implanted in their bodies.

The chips contain personal information and provide access to the company’s IT systems and headquarters, replacing existing ID cards.

The controversial devices raise questions about personal security and safety, including whether they may allow the movements of people with implants to be tracked.

Technology like this often starts off being “voluntary”, but then after enough people willingly accept it the transition to “mandatory” is not too difficult.

We live at one of the most critical moments in all of human history, and the globalists are certainly not going to lay down and die just because Donald Trump won the election.

The U.S. represents less than five percent of the population of the planet, and in most of the world the agenda of the globalists is on track and is rapidly advancing.

The globalists want a unified one world economy, a unified one world religion and a unified one world government.  The election of Donald Trump was a blow to the globalists, but it has also made them more dangerous, more ruthless and more determined than ever before.

And in case you think that using the term “globalists” is a bit strange, the truth is that even the New York Times is using it to describe the global elite and their global agenda.

We are in a life or death battle for the future of our society, and the globalists are never going to give up until they get what they want.  So now is not a time for complacency, because the very future of our country is at stake.

Olddogs Comments!

There is no doubt in my mind that humanity has already been surreptitiously adjusted to accept annihilation. How else can one explain the nearly total lack of outrage? The apparent lack of interest in what the globalist intend to do to the whole planet is mind numbing. By any sense of concern for their future, humanity as a whole should be clamoring for their heads. Trump should be assembling a military strike on every globalist wherever they are. It’s not like there is no proof what they have done and their goals, so why is the whole damn world sitting on their ass?

Mother of all Deceptions The Concept of Modern Day Slavery:

February 17th, 2017 by

http://www.paulstramer.net/2017/02/justinian-deception-hidden-foreign-text.html

JUSTINIAN DECEPTION HIDDEN FOREIGN TEXT KNOWN AS DOG LATIN)

GLOSSA
Introduction by Anna Von Reitz:

Many years ago I started wondering about the all capital letters names employed by the military.  I noticed that all names in the military were written in all capitals: LIEUTENANT RODNEY KNOX, for example, as were all the stenciled words plastered on packing crates and vehicles belonging to the US ARMY.  I even tasked my poor Father about it, and he mumbled, “When you are in the military, you are a slave, and all that you have as property does not belong to you.”

This cryptic reply made no particular sense to me, nor did the idea that those putting their lives at risk to defend us would suffer the status of slaves?  He was busy and the sun was hot and the road before us was dusty from the wheels of the endless military convoy passing by on the old US HIGHWAY 12.  I noted the answer and let it slip into the category of “things you will understand when you are older”—where it remained until my twenties, when I began seeing my name written in all capital letters on Federal Student Loan paperwork. 

I eventually tracked this odd style of name back to Ancient Rome and Roman Civil Law.  I even wrote a studious Memorandum of Law about the use of peculiar naming conventions in the Roman Civil Law going back to 200 B.C.

I discovered that noble Romans used names written in all small case letters: flavius gallus aurelius, while indentured servants used names in Upper and Lower Case: Flavius Gallus Aurelius—-and just as my Father said, slaves used names in all capitals: FLAVIUS GALLUS AURELIUS.

This did not bode well for whatever poor creature might be named ANNA MARIA RIEZINGER nor did it adequately explain how or why or by whom my given name would be so abused on government paperwork.  I never volunteered to join the Army.

I knew that names written in all capital letters were “slave names” and that it was not proper Latin, but as to what it was?  Well, I combed dutifully through dictionaries and style guides and the Government Printing Office publications but the entire net of this effort was to define what the NAME was not—– not proper English, not used officially, not proper Latin, not, not, not…. but precious little came forward to enlighten me any further on the topic of what it was being used for, or who or what was mandating its use?

The answer— that it was being used by private mostly foreign-owned governmental services corporations for the purpose of defrauding and mischaracterizing me for their own profit — is not the kind of thing that these organizations nor their employees would trumpet from the rooftops, is it? 

The Secret of Glossa–the use of Dog Latin embedded in English documents– has finally come to full and glorious light thanks to the efforts of a team of Australian researchers who have delved into this vicious fraud and breach of trust that has been perpetuated against humanity for many generations. 

Please read the information carefully and grasp the immensity and longevity of the enslavement and abuse that has been exercised against innocent people, Catholic and non-Catholic alike, by the Roman Pontiffs and their bill collectors, the members of the Bar Associations worldwide.

A name written in Dog Latin, for example, JOHN MARK DOE,  is the equivalent of a siphon used by vampires to quietly, sneakily, with little risk to themselves—-suck away your life’s blood and energy for their own benefit. 

In itself, the mischaracterized name is a tool, lifeless and inert— like a siphon, a door handle, a rope, or a poppet— harmless until and unless it is used for the purpose of committing personage against you and providing access to your assets, including the value of your labor, your land, your businesses, and your very bodies.

The use of these false foreign names, embedded in any document written in English, is prima facie evidence of a crime.

This fundamental crime of personage must finally come to a halt, must be recognized for what it is and brought to an ignominious end.  The fruit of many years of research has now come into your hands, for you to use in your own defense and the defense of others— all thanks to men who live half a world away, but whose dream and need for freedom is the same as that that lives in every human breast. 

 

I understand that there will be a complete set of DVD’s available in the near future detailing the full extent of the research and the experience and thoughts of the researchers.  Both to support their work and to undergird your own knowledge, I heartily recommend that everyone secure a copy for their own families and communities and share the information as widely as possible.

What Will Trump Do About the Central Banking Cartel?

February 16th, 2017 by

https://mises.org/blog/what-will-trump-do-about-central-bank-cartel

by Thorsten Polleit

The US is by far the biggest economy in the world. Its financial markets — be it equity, bonds or derivatives markets — are the largest and most liquid. The Greenback is the most important transaction currency. Many currencies in the world — be it the euro, the Chinese renminbi, the British pound or the Swiss franc — have actually been built upon the US dollar.

The world is effectively on a US-dollar-standard, and the US Federal Reserve (Fed) has risen to the unofficial status of the world’s central bank. The rise of the Greenback has to a large extent been propelled by international banking, which has basically “dollarized” in terms of its lending and issuing activities.

The Fed Sets Global Policy

The Fed’s policy not only determines credit and liquidity conditions in the US, but does so in many financial markets around the world as well. For instance, movements of long-term US interest rates regularly have effects on credit and equity markets in, say, Europe and Asia. The Fed’s actions are the blueprint for monetary policymaking in many countries around the world.

The graph shows the Fed’s supply of newly created US dollar liquidity sent to other central banks around the world. It also shows the so-called “euro cross currency basis swap,” which can be interpreted as a “stress indicator”: If it drops into negative territory, it means that euro banks find it increasingly difficult to obtain US dollar credit in the free market place. The Fed’s injection of new US dollar balances into the financial system has helped to reduce the euro currency basis swap. Since late 2016, however, it has started to venture again into negative territory — potentially signaling that euro banks are again heading for trouble.

CENTRAL BANKING

The financial and economic crisis 2008/2009 has increased further the dependency of the world’s financial system on the US dollar. As early as December 2008, the Fed provided so called “liquidity swap agreements.” Under the latter the Fed is prepared to lend newly created US dollars to other central banks around the globe.

For instance, the European Central Bank (ECB) can obtain US dollars from the Fed and lend the funds on to shaky domestic banks in need for US dollar funding. In other words: Liquidity swap agreements can easily replace foreign currency funding in the market place by foreign currency credit provided by central banks.

Meanwhile, all major central banks around the world — the European Central Bank, the Bank of Japan, the Chinese central bank, the Bank of England, and the Swiss National Bank — have joined the liquidity swap agreement club. They also have agreed to provide their own currencies to all other central banks — in actually unlimited amounts if needed.

It is no wonder, therefore, that credit default concerns in financial markets have declined substantially. Investors feel assured that big banks won’t default on their foreign currency liabilities — as such a credit event is considered politically undesirable, and central banks can simply avoid it by printing up new money.

Moving Toward a Worldwide Central Bank

The close cooperation and coordination among central banks under the Fed’s tutelage amounts to an international cartelization of central banking — paving the way toward a single world monetary policy run by a yet to be determined single world central bank. Such a development is, or course, in the very interest of those in favor of establishing a single world government.

How will President Donald J. Trump and his administration deal with the cartelization in central banking? Mr. Trump doesn’t seem to be an “internationalist,” seeking to build a new world order by political and military means. If that is so, he will sooner or later have to come to grips with the Fed’s policies — most notably with its liquidity swap agreements.

The Fed’s policy has made the world’s financial system addicted to ever greater amounts of US dollars, easily accessible and provided at fairly low interest rates. From this the US banks benefit greatly, while average Americans bear the brunt: they pay the price in terms of, for instance, boom and bust and an erosion of the purchasing power of the US dollar.

What Trump Should Do 

If the Trump administration really wishes to live up to its campaign promise “Make America great again,” there is no way of getting around addressing Fed policy. A first step in that direction is the idea to subject the US central bank to public scrutiny (“Audit the Fed”), bringing to public attention the scope of the Fed’s interventions into the world’s banking system.

Of course, the liquidity swap agreements in particular can be expected to be heavily defended by central bankers, bank representatives, big business lobbyists, and mainstream economists as being indispensable for financial system stability. And for sure, a sudden withdrawal from this practice would almost certainly deal a heavy blow to financial markets.

If push comes to shove, it could even make the worldwide credit pyramid, built on fiat money, come crashing down. However, the really important argument in this context is that the continuation of the practice of central bank cartelization will eventually result in a despotic regime: and that is a single world fiat currency regime.

Of course, change for the better doesn’t come from politics. It comes from better ideas. For it is ideas that determine human action. Whatever these ideas are and wherever they come from: They make humans act. For this reason the great Austrian economist Ludwig von Mises (1881 – 1973) advocates the idea of the “sound money principle”:

The sound-money principle has two aspects. It is affirmative in approving the market’s choice of a commonly used medium of exchange. It is negative in obstructing the government’s propensity to meddle with the currency system.[1]

Mises also explains convincingly the importance of the sound money principle for each and every one of us:

It is impossible to grasp the meaning of the idea of sound money if one does not realize that it was devised as an instrument for the protection of civil liberties against despotic inroads on the part of governments. Ideologically it belongs in the same class with political constitutions and bills of right.

Mises’s sound money principle calls for ending central banking once and for all and opening up a free market in money. Having brought to a halt political globalism for now, the new US administration has now also a once in a lifetime chance to make the world great again — simply by ending the state’s monopoly of money production.

If the US would move in that direction — ending legal tender laws and giving the freedom to the American people to use, say, gold, silver, or bitcoin as their preferred media of exchange — the rest of the world would most likely have to follow the example. That said, Mr. Trump could really make a real change, simply by embracing Mises’s sound money principle.

And banks feel that they currently have TOO MUCH capital…

CENTRAL BANKING

By Simon Black

In a scathing editorial published in the Wall Street Journal today, the president of the Federal Reserve Bank of Minneapolis, Neel Kashkari, blasted US banks, saying that they still lacked sufficient capital to withstand a major crisis.

Kashkari makes a great analogy.

When you’re applying for a mortgage or business loan, sensible banks are supposed to demand a 20% down payment from their borrowers.

If you want to buy a $500,000 home, a conservative bank will loan creditworthy borrowers $400,000. The borrower must be able to scratch together a $100,000 down payment.

But when banks make investments and buy assets, they aren’t required to do the same thing.

Remember that when you deposit money at a bank, you’re essentially loaning them your savings.

As a bank depositor, you’re the lender. The bank is the borrower.

Banks pool together their deposits and make various loans and investments.

They buy government bonds, financial commercial trade, and fund real estate purchases.

Some of their investment decisions make sense. Others are completely idiotic, as we saw in the 2008 financial meltdown.

But the larger point is that banks don’t use their own money to make these investments. They use other people’s money. Your money.

A bank’s investment portfolio is almost entirely funded with its customers’ savings. Very little of the bank’s own money is at risk.

You can see the stark contrast here.

If you as an individual want to borrow money to invest in something, you’re obliged to put down 20%, perhaps even much more depending on the asset.

Your down payment provides a substantial cushion for the bank; if you stop paying the loan, the value of the property could decline 20% before the bank loses any money.

But if a bank wants to make an investment, they typically don’t have to put down a single penny.

The bank’s lenders, i.e. its depositors, put up all the money for the investment.

If the investment does well, the bank keeps all the profits.

But if the investment does poorly, the bank hasn’t risked any of its own money.

The bank’s lenders (i.e. the depositors) are taking on all the risk.

This seems pretty one-sided, especially considering that in exchange for assuming all the risk of a bank’s investment decisions, you are rewarded with a miniscule interest rate that fails to keep up with inflation.

(After which the government taxes you on the interest that you receive.)

It hardly seems worth it.

Back in 2008-2009, the entire financial system was on the brink of collapse because banks had been making wild bets without having sufficient capital.

In other words, the banks hadn’t made a sufficient “down payment” on the toxic investments they had purchased.

All those assets and idiotic loans were made almost exclusively with their customers’ savings.

Lehman Brothers, a now-defunct investment bank, infamously had about 3% capital at the time of its collapse, meaning that Lehman used just 3% of its own money to buy toxic assets.

Eventually the values of those toxic assets collapsed.

And not only was the bank wiped out, but investors who had loaned the bank money took a giant loss.

This happened across the entire financial system because banks had made idiotic investment decisions and failed to maintain sufficient capital to absorb the losses.

Nearly a decade later, Kashkari says that banks still aren’t sufficiently capitalized.

(He also points out that banks today are obsessed with pointless documentation and  seem “unable to exercise judgment or use common sense.”)

The banks themselves obviously don’t agree.

As Kashkari states, banks feel that they currently have TOO MUCH capital.

Bizarre. They’re basically saying that they want to be LESS safe, like a stunt pilot complaining that his helmet is too sturdy.

I’ve written about this many times– the decision for where to hold your savings matters. It’s important.

In addition to solvency and liquidity concerns, there are a multitude of other issues, like routine violations of the public trust, collusion to fix interest and exchange rates, manipulation of asset prices, and all-out fraud.

(I personally got so fed up with our deceitful financial system that I started my own bank in 2015 to handle my companies’ financial transactions. More on that another time…)

Yet despite these obvious risks, most people simply assume away the safety of their bank.

They’ll spend more time thinking about what to watch on Netflix than which bank is the most responsible custodian of their life’s savings.

There are countless ways to figure this out, but here’s a short-cut: much much “capital” or “equity” does the bank have as a percentage of its total assets?

These are easy numbers to find. Just Google “XYZ bank balance sheet”.

Look at the bottom where it says “capital” or “equity”. That’s your numerator.

Then look above that number to find total assets. That’s your denominator.

Divide the two. The higher the percentage, the safer the bank.

Kashkari thinks the answer should be at least 20%, especially among mega-banks in the US.  

Until tomorrow,

Globalists Want To Destroy Conservative Principles But They Need Our Help

CIVIL WAR

By Brandon Smith

For months now, long before the 2016 election, I have been warning about a specific social dynamic which is likely to lead to a form of civil war within the U.S.; namely, the reality that people on the left side of the political spectrum would become despondent at the inevitable loss of their candidate, Hillary Clinton, and that they would react by becoming far more militant. In my article ‘Order Out Of Chaos: The Defeat Of The Left Comes With A Cost’, published November post-election, I stated:

“When I mentioned in my last article the crippling of social justice, I did not mention that this could have some negative reverberations. With Trump and conservatives taking near-total power after the Left had assumed they would never lose again, their reaction has been to transform. They are stepping away from the normal activities and mindset of cultural Marxism and evolving into full blown communists. Instead of admitting that their ideology is a failure in every respect, they are doubling down.

When this evolution is complete, the Left WILL resort to direct violent action on a larger scale, and they will do so with a clear conscience because, in their minds, they are fighting fascism.”

I believed at that time that the social-justice cult would lose mainstream influence but that the existing minority would resort to even more insidious tactics and greater violence to get what they want; and, the so-called “moderate left” would cheer them on.  As it turns out, I have been proven right so far.

Not that extreme Leftists have been averse to violence over the past year, but I think it is safe to say that the volume on the cultural Marxist machine has been turned up a notch. The riot at UC Berkeley over a scheduled speech by gay, conservative speaker Milo Yiannopoulos is a perfect example:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l2TkEqnp-2w

Then, there was the raid by SJWs at NYU on a speech by conservative journalist and comedian Gavin McInnes, in which they shouted down all discussion with mindless chants until the event had to be canceled. This was, of course, after they had already physically attacked people outside the building, including McInnes:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iwA_0FKR9f4

The social justice mantra is changing. At first, it was predominately about forming mobs to “shame” target political opponents into silence. Now, it is about forming mobs to do what they call “punching Nazis.” Leftists are now often seen regurgitating the claim — “This is only the beginning…”

I agree, this IS only the beginning. The Left is driven not only by the ideology of cultural Marxism, but also a very specific activist strategy outlined in Saul Alinsky’s ‘Rules For Radicals’. The very core of Alinsky’s method revolves around one important rule in particular: the ends justify the means.

This is the key ingredient of moral relativism, and when a movement is motivated by moral relativism, there is no limit to the depths they will sink to get their way. Activists adopting the “ends justify the means” mentality are not interested in being “right,” or wise, or rational or logical or factual; they ONLY care about “winning.” This is their goal, and they will do anything to achieve it.

It is important to note, however, that all of these protests and the increase in violence is not taking place in a vacuum. As many liberty analysts have noted, Trump has hardly had time to do anything yet that would warrant national protests. Is Trump really the only catalyst? Not quite. The mainstream media and globalists like George Soros have been very effective in agitating or outright paying protesters and provocateurs to generate zombie mobs of gullible Leftists to use as a billy club for harassing conservatives.

That said, I want liberty activists and analysts to ponder on this for a moment — to what end is this being done? Why is Soros so interested in fomenting leftist rage? Is it designed to overthrow Trump? To initiate mob action and frighten conservatives into silence? Or do the globalists have a greater and more important goal in mind?

I have been writing often on the idea of 4th Generation Warfare the past month, and I think my readers are now well versed in the concept of the “three-steps-ahead” style of tactics, as well as the concept of manipulating an opponent to destroy himself, rather than fighting him directly. These are not new methods, the globalists have merely taken them to the next level.

But how do 4th Gen warfare tactics apply to the current Right vs. Left scenario in the U.S.? Well, everything is not as obvious as it seems.

As I outlined in-depth in my article Clinton Versus Trump And The Co-Option Of The Liberty Movement, globalists and the leftist media have been, in a strange way, quietly cheering for Trump, but only as a tool for absorbing the liberty movement (what they still call the “Tea Party”). This glee is made rather evident in an article published by Bloomberg in August titled The Tea Party Meets Its Maker.

There is a point I have been trying to make for most of the year that I think has been consistently missed by many in the liberty movement. That point being that the greatest danger to conservatives is NOT militant Leftists, but how we RESPOND to militant Leftists. That is to say, I believe the globalists are using the Left as a cattle prod to enrage conservatives and lure us into abandoning our principles in the name of defeating Marxists.

Consider this; the argument among most liberty analysts has been that the numerous anti-Constitutional programs put in place by the Obama administration in the past eights years would eventually be used by the political Left and the globalists as weapons to subdue and destroy conservatives and patriot groups. While Obama certainly tested the waters of tyranny over and over again, up to and including using executive orders to assassinate American citizens without trial, it is clear that those extensive powers afforded to the White House are no longer in the hands of the left; they are in the hands of Trump.

Obama even signed the “Countering Disinformation And Propaganda Act” into law AFTER Trump had already won the White House. Trump has now inherited this power as well, which seems to give government the authority to harass or even silence news sources they deem “fake news.” While many liberty activists cried foul and warned of a “coup” designed to shut down alternative news sites and thwart Trump’s inauguration, I warned that there was a much more dangerous scenario in play.

What will conservatives do in the face of the leftist mob funded by globalists and growing ever more vicious? Well, what do the globalists expect us to do? I think they expect us to look at all the government powers we once admonished as unConstitutional and say “hey, maybe these laws and executive orders are not so bad after all…”

I think the globalists are handing us the incredible temptation of far reaching bureaucratic power, and they expect us to abuse that power, as almost anyone would.

As an alternative analyst I am privy to trends in the liberty movement and in conservative circles that might not be immediately obvious to casual readers. Already, I am witnessing calls among conservatives to abuse government power to defeat the Left. I have seen comments such as:

“Trump should use the NDAA to imprison these leftists indefinitely…”

“The only solution is to throw the leftists into FEMA camps…”

“Trump needs to shut down the leftist media…”

“Sometimes it is okay to bend the rules of the constitution if you have the right president…”

And comments like this are popping up everywhere in liberty media boards. Now, I recognize that some of this talk is being posted by paid disinformation agents and provocateurs, but, I have heard regular conservatives and patriots, people who are long time proponents of the Constitution, echo similar sentiments.

I often use the analogy of the “One Ring” from The Lord Of The Rings to describe big government power. I really can’t find a better fictional symbol. Anyone who comes into possession of the “one ring” is eventually corrupted by it. Many good people believe that its darker energy can be contained and directed for good purposes, but they, too, are ultimately undone by it. The only answer, the only solution, is to abandon the ring, or to destroy it.

Overt government power is very much the same; it corrupts any person or group that comes in contact with it. Every group thinks that if only THEY were in possession of government that they would do things differently. This is a delusion. No person or group is benevolent enough to handle this responsibility, and this includes conservatives. Many groups would commit egregious and heinous crimes to take government for themselves, or keep it for themselves, all the while so many Saurons (globalists) laugh and smack their lips as the masses battle over numerous rings of power.

As I have noted time and time again for the past several months, Trump is the perfect tool for scapegoating conservative movements for the economic crisis the elites have already engineered. But, this is only one part of the agenda. In the midst of chaos generated by financial calamity, the morals of an entire society can become “malleable”.  The most important target of the globalists is not only conservatives, but the conservative philosophy. They don’t just want to annihilate conservatives today, they want to annihilate conservatives for all time.

The globalists cannot accomplish this task without our help. They NEED us to adopt an attitude of moral relativism, much like the Left. They need us to turn into totalitarians. They need us to become the monster we claim we want to defeat. Only then can conservative principles be demonized for all time. Only then will history look back on us as a stain on the human record.

This is the globalist’s long game.

While Leftists are being encouraged to mutate into wild frothing packs of rabid dogs, conservatives will be encouraged either through temptation or manipulation to respond in kind. The Left’s propaganda train asserts that we are “fascists.” Obviously, we are the furthest thing from this. But, with enough violence and aggressive censorship on their part, we might end up saying “Okay, you want to see fascism, we’ll show you fascism!”

The social justice cult has no idea what they are being led into. The globalists are going to throw them to the wolves, and WE are the wolves.

It is important to note that the Left is also not the only instigator for conservatives to turn totalitarian. Islamic terrorism is always a perfect rationale for increased government intrusion in the name of safety. The worst part is, the threats from the Left and the threats from Islamic extremism are in most cases quite legitimate, and they seem to be working hand-in-hand more each day.

The progressive interference with steps towards more rational immigration policies and their steady defense of Sharia Law leads many conservatives to see them as one in the same enemy.  No foreigner is entitled to citizenship in the U.S., but leftists live in a fantasy world of open borders.  The left’s refusal to entertain reasonable and selective immigration will eventually push conservatives towards more drastic measures, which is the ultimate point.

Very few Americans like Communists, and very few Americans like Muslim zealotry; the justification for totalitarian measures to disrupt such threats is relatively easy for many people.

This is why I am going to make my next prediction of a major geopolitical event to close out this article — I believe there will be a large scale terrorist attack within the next three months, beyond the mob actions of the Left already in progress.

It will either be similar in scope to 9/11, or, it will be a succession of many smaller attacks occurring over the course of a few days to a couple of weeks. I believe that the current dispute over border controls and immigration denial will come immediately into play. Trump will blame Leftists for obstructing his efforts for secure immigration. Leftists and the media will blame Trump for “radicalizing” Muslims with his immigration policies, or perhaps even accuse him of staging the attacks himself. Trump will begin taking extraordinary measures beyond the Constitution to ensure immigration denial and the thwarting of the Left, and conservatives will applaud him for it.

Again, conservatives are being led by globalists into the temptations of power. The only way for us to fight back is to maintain our principles and refuse to support ANY government measure that is unConstitutional, even if it is to be used against our enemies. The only way that the heritage of liberty can be defeated is if the proponents and champions of liberty forsake it. We beat the globalists in the long run by standing by our ideals and fighting back within the bounds of the principles we hold dear. Dominance through government is never the answer.

The Power and Authority of the County Sheriff

February 9th, 2017 by

https://www.nationallibertyalliance.org/countysheriff

 

The purpose of this page is to empower the County Sheriff and U.S. Marshal through knowledge of the Supreme Law of the Land and history; in order that they may serve the People and save/preserve America. There is no elected or appointed official that can remove the Sheriff or Marshal from office. The Sheriff is elected by the People of their county and the Marshal is appointed by the President who was vested with that power by We the People through the United States Constitution. In the case Marbury v Madison in 1803 the Court made it clear that the Constitution gave the power to the president to appoint but not the power to remove, that is reserved to the People alone through indictment for bad behavior.

 

There are only two Law Enforcement officers in America; The County Sheriff and the US Marshal. The sheriff is the only elected law enforcer whose duty it is to protect the unalienable rights of the People both in the court room and within the county. While the U.S. Marshal is responsible for protecting the unalienable rights of the People in the Federal Court room.

The Sheriff is the only person able to call for the posse comitatus (Latin, Power of the county) Referred at Common Law to all males over the age of fifteen on whom a sheriff could call for assistance in preventing any type of civil disorder. Today, under a national emergency the Sheriff is both the first and last line of defense should our government go rouge; since congress has been derelict of duty in the providing for the militia.

U.S. Constitution Article I Section 8 clauses 15 and 16: The Congress shall have power to provide for calling forth the militia to execute the laws of the union, suppress insurrections and repel invasionsTo provide for organizing, arming, and disciplining, the militia, and for governing such part of them as may be employed in the service of the United States, reserving to the states respectively, the appointment of the officers, and the authority of training the militia according to the discipline prescribed by Congress;”

The Bill of Rights makes clear two (2) things (1) A well regulated militia is an unalienable right and (2) a well regulated militia is necessary to our security.

Amendment II “A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.”

Today all seats of government have unlawfully incorporated and therefore all police forces (city, town, village, state, etc.) work for corporations and owe their allegiance to the corporation, therein “code enforcement officers”; whereas Sheriffs and Marshals are “constitutional officers” owing allegiance to the People. There exists no Constitutional authority for police forces.

U.S. Constitution Article VI clause 2: “This Constitution, and the laws of the United States which shall be made in pursuance thereof; and all treaties made, or which shall be made, under the authority of the United States, shall be the supreme law of the land; and the judges in every state shall be bound thereby, anything in the Constitution or laws of any State to the contrary notwithstanding.”

The Declaration of Independence, U.S. Constitution and the Bill of Rights are founded under common law, a/k/a the Supreme Law of the Land. ALL CASES AT LAW: Black’s Law 4th, “within constitutional guaranty of jury trial, refers to common law actions as distinguished from causes in equity and certain other proceedings.” Breimhorst v. Beck-man, 227 Minn. 409, 35 N.W.2d 719, 734.

The Sheriff and the U.S. Marshal just like We the People have lost their way. We have forgotten who we are and by what authority we act upon and therefore our servants rule over us. The purpose of this site is to help us find our way back to the Liberties our founding fathers discovered and pledged their lives, their fortunes and their sacred honor to establish for themselves and their posterity. It is now our turn, our duty, to re-discover our roots for ourselves and our posterity. There are forces within our government that are doing everything they can to prevent that from happening. These people are called progressives and over the years they have taken control of both major parties and thereby methodically removed civics, God and constitutional studies from our education and through the media, entertainment and education have demoralized us.

What We the People and our Sheriffs need to know is that:

We the people of the United States, in order to form a more perfect union, establish justice, insure domestic tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general welfare, and secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.” Preamble to the U.S. Constitution.

When we the People ordained Common Law, U.S. Constitution Article VI, the Supreme Law of the Land We the People took control of all decision making within the courts through Grand and Trial Juries and the Common Law Sheriff became the only Law Enforcer of the court and the county. The common law court is well established and defined in history, Blacks Law and Bouviers Law.

“The Sheriff is the “Chief Executive and Administrative Officer” of a county chosen by popular election. His principal duties are in aid of the criminal and civil courts of record [common law courts]; such as serving process, summoning juries, executing judgments, holding judicial sales and the like. He is also the chief conservator of the peace within his territorial jurisdiction.” Harston v. Langston, Tex.Civ. App., 292 S.W. 648, 650.

The word “Sheriff” is a contraction of the term “shire reeve”, meaning a royal official responsible for keeping the peace throughout a shire or county on behalf of the king(s). We the People “Ordained” the Constitution for the United States of America which puts the People as the said kings above the Constitution and our elected servants under the Constitution, therein the great American experiment. Our servants have no more power than that which We the People gave them and any law they write to the contrary is null and void as if it has never been passed; as we read:

“All laws, rules and practices which are repugnant to the Constitution are null and void.” Marbury v. Madison, 5th US (2 Cranch) 137, 180

“Where rights secured by the Constitution are involved, there can be no rule making or legislation which would abrogate them.” Miranda v. Arizona, 384 U.S. 436, 491

SHERIFFS TERM OF OFFICE AND
REMOVAL FROM OFFICE

State Constitutions require the election of the Sheriff for a two or four year term. His full authority is defined in common law history and cannot be altered. The Sheriff can only be removed from power at the ballot box or by the People for bad behaviour through indictment. Not upholding his oath would be bad behavior.

GOOD BEHAVIOR: “The term ‘good behavior’ means conduct that is authorized by law, and ‘bad behavior’ means conduct such as the law will punish.” State v. Hardin, 183 N.C. 815, 112 S.E. 593, 594. “Orderly and lawful conduct;” Huyser v. Com., 25 Ky.L. Rep. 608, 76 S.W. 175; In re Spenser, 22 Fed.Cas. 921. “‘Good behavior,’ means merely conduct conformable to law, or to the particular law theretofore breached.” Ex parte Hamm, 24 N.M. 33, 172 P. 190, 191, L.R. A.1918D, 694; Baker v. Commonwealth, 181 Ky. 437, 205 S.W. 399, 401.

SHERIFF AND THE JURY

Although many states write statutes on how the state, usually through the prosecutor, calls the Grand Jury; such statutes have no control over the Sheriff or the People. History recalls that the Sheriff is usually the one who calls for the Grand Jury after or before he makes an arrest and the state calls for the Grand Jury if the state wants to accuse someone of a crime.

In all cases it is the People through the Grand Jury who will decide if a crime was committed or not by indictment. The administration for the Grand Jury also known as the investigative body for the Grand Jury is made up of four People who are “not” elected or appointed but rise out from among the People. We find this process has been established since at least 1215AD and is described in the Magna Carta. Most states have statutory Commissioner of Jurors that are political appointments and therefore are an abomination to common law.

THE POWER OF THE PEOPLE

In the 1992 court case United States v Williams Justice Antonin Scalia, writing for the majority, confirmed that the American grand jury is neither part of the judicial, executive nor legislative branches of government, but instead belongs to the people. It is in effect a fourth branch of government “governed” and administered to directly by and on behalf of the American people, and its authority emanates from the Bill of Rights. Thus, citizens have the unbridled right to empanel their own grand juries and present “True Bills” of indictment to a court, which is then required to commence a criminal proceeding. Our Founding Fathers presciently thereby created a “buffer” the people may rely upon for justice, when public officials, including judges, criminally violate the law.

We the people have been providentially provided legal recourse to address the criminal conduct of persons themselves entrusted to dispense justice. In the Supreme Court case of United States v. Williams, 112 S.Ct. 1735, 504 U.S. 36, 118 L.Ed.2d 352 (1992), whereas the Court said:Because the grand jury is an institution separate from the courts, over whose functioning the courts do not preside, we think it clear that, as a general matter at least, no such “supervisory” judicial authority exists, “[R]ooted in long centuries of Anglo-American history,” Hannah v. Larche, 363 U.S. 420, 490, 80 S.Ct. 1502, 1544, 4 L.Ed.2d 1307 (1960) (Frankfurter, J., concurring in result),the grand jury is mentioned in the Bill of Rights, but not in the body of the Constitution. It has not been textually assigned, therefore, to any of the branches described in the first three Articles. It ” ‘is a constitutional fixture in its own right.'” United States v. Chanen, 549 F.2d 1306, 1312 (CA9 1977) (quoting Nixon v. Sirica, 159 U.S.App.D.C. 58, 70, n. 54, 487 F.2d 700, 712, n. 54 (1973)), cert. denied, 434 U.S. 825, 98 S.Ct. 72, 54 L.Ed.2d 83 (1977). “In fact the whole theory of its function is that it belongs to no branch of the institutional government, serving as a kind of buffer or referee between the Government and the people.” Stirone v. United States, 361 U.S. 212, 218, 80 S.Ct. 270, 273, 4 L.Ed.2d 252 (1960); Hale v. Henkel, 201 U.S. 43, 61, 26 S.Ct. 370, 373, 50 L.Ed. 652 (1906); G. Edwards, The Grand Jury 28-32 (1906). “Although the grand jury normally operates, of course, in the courthouse and under judicial auspices, its institutional relationship with the judicial branch has traditionally been, so to speak, at arm’s length. Judges’ direct involvement in the functioning of the grand jury has generally been confined to the  constitutive one of calling the grand jurors together and administering their oaths of office.” United States v. Calandra, 414 U.S. 338, 343, 94 S.Ct. 613, 617, 38 L.Ed.2d 561 (1974); Fed.Rule Crim.Proc. 6(a).

“The grand jury’s functional independence from the judicial branch is evident both in the scope of its power to investigate criminal wrongdoing, and in the manner in which that power is exercised. “Unlike [a] [c]ourt, whose jurisdiction is predicated upon a specific case or controversy, the grand jury ‘can investigate merely on suspicion that the law is being violated, or even because it wants assurance that it is not.'” United States v. R. Enterprises, 498 U.S. —-, —- , 111 S.Ct. 722, 726, 112 L.Ed.2d 795 (1991) (quoting United States v. Morton Salt Co., 338 U.S. 632, 642-643, 70 S.Ct. 357, 364, 94 L.Ed. 401 (1950)). “It need not identify the offender it suspects, or even “the precise nature of the offense” it is investigating. Blair v. United States, 250 U.S. 273, 282, 39 S.Ct. 468, 471, 63 L.Ed. 979 (1919). “The grand jury requires no authorization from its constituting court to initiate an investigation,” see Hale, supra, 201 U.S., at 59-60, 65, 26 S.Ct., at 373, 375, “nor does the prosecutor require leave of court to seek a grand jury indictment. And in its day-to-day functioning, the grand jury generally operates without the interference of a presiding judge.” See Calandra, supra, 414 U.S., at 343, 94 S.Ct., at 617. “It swears in its own witnesses, Fed.Rule Crim.Proc. 6(c), and deliberates in total secrecy,” see United States v. Sells Engineering, Inc., 463 U.S., at 424-425, 103 S.Ct., at 3138. “we have insisted that the grand jury remain “free to pursue its investigations unhindered by external influence or supervision so long as it does not trench upon the legitimate rights of any witness called before it.” United States v. Dionisio, 410 U.S. 1, 17-18, 93 S.Ct. 764, 773, 35 L.Ed.2d 67 (1973). “Recognizing this tradition of independence, we have said that the Fifth Amendment’s “constitutional guarantee presupposes an investigative body ‘acting independently of either prosecuting attorney or judge ‘. . . . Id., at 16, 93 S.Ct., at 773 (emphasis added) (quoting Stirone, supra, 361 U.S., at 218, 80 S.Ct., at 273).

“Given the grand jury’s operational separateness from its constituting court, it should come as no surprise that we have been reluctant to invoke the judicial supervisory power as a basis for prescribing modes of grand jury procedure. Over the years, we have received many requests to exercise supervision over the grand jury’s evidence-taking process, but we have refused them all, including some more appealing than the one presented today. In Calandra v. United States, supra, a grand jury witness faced questions that were allegedly based upon physical evidence the Government had obtained through a violation of the Fourth Amendment; we rejected the proposal that the exclusionary rule be extended to grand jury proceedings, because of “the potential injury to the historic role and functions of the grand jury.” 414 U.S., at 349, 94 S.Ct., at 620. Costello v. United States, 350 U.S. 359, 76 S.Ct. 406, 100 L.Ed. 397 (1956), “we declined to enforce the hearsay rule in grand jury proceedings, since that “would run counter to the whole history of the grand jury institution, in which laymen conduct their inquiries unfettered by technical rules.” Id., at 364, 76 S.Ct., at 409.

JUDGES AND PROSECUTORS
ACT ABOVE THE LAW

A common complaint from Sheriffs is, “I cannot arrest a judge without first getting the prosecutor to agree otherwise the prosecutor may refuse to prosecute.” The question that begs answering is where did the prosecutor get such power? Certainly We the People did not give it to them in the Constitution and certainly congress can make no Law that we did not give them the power to make. We the People did not ordain the prosecutor “Chief Law Enforcer”, but the Sheriff! Solution: if the prosecutor refuses to prosecute they should be arrested for “felony rescue”.

The Sheriff is not to go begging the prosecutor for an indictment, he shouldn’t even be going to the prosecutor at all, but to the Grand Jury directly and ask them for an indictment. The problem is that the Judge and the prosecutor deny Sheriffs and the People access to the Grand Jury. After six years of practicing law without a BAR degree we found out that many judges and prosecutors have something to hide so they protect each other by blocking access to the Grand Jury, they fear what you may ask of the Grand Jury.

So, if the Sheriff needs to ask permission, he’s not the Chief and he passes his duties to others, and any Sheriff that does that is in “Bad Behavior”. If the Sheriff cannot get access to the Jury Administrators (a/k/a Commissioners of Jurors) directly he has the power and authority to summons 25 People, out of any pool (phone book, etc.) to the courthouse jury room and ask for an indictment.

We the People did not give prosecutors power to negotiate deals with People under indictment. Prosecutors may propose the deal to the Grand Jury for decision; but the arrangement must offer a plan for restitution acceptable to the injured party or due process, trial by jury, must run its course.

GUN CONTROL

Alaska, Arizona, Vermont and Wyoming have no law requiring pistol owners to have a permit to carry. Colorado, Iowa, Georgia, Kentucky, Maine, New Hampshire, Ohio, Oklahoma, Rhode Island, South Carolina, South Dakota and Virginia, according to the NRA are considering bills in current legislative sessions to end permit requirements. The United States Supreme Court quoting the rules of criminal and civil procedure said: “The carrying of arms in a quiet, peaceable, and orderly manner, concealed on or about the person, is not a breach of the peace. Nor does such an act of itself, lead to a breach of the peace.” Wharton’s Criminal and Civil Procedure, 12th Ed., Vol.2: Judy v. Lashley, 5 W. Va. 628, 41 S.E. 197

The Bill of Rights Amendment II states “A well-regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.” This Amendment protects two unalienable rights, both of which articulate the right of self-defense, one personal, the right to protect your-self from another individual shall not be infringed and the other to protect our-self from a rouge government, shall not be infringed. Some may say the right to keep and bear Arms is for the militia; this makes no sense because We the People are the militia, nor are We the People willing to give up an unalienable right.

Conclusion: if the Sheriff does not protect the right of the People to keep and bear arms he is in violation of his oath and thereby in bad behavior and subject to removal from office by the People through indictment. The real test of the Sheriffs Constitutional fortitude in states that require permits is; is he going to protect the People from rogue statutes and bureaucrats or compromise the Law?

ARREST OR SEIZURE WARRANTS

All arrest or seizure warrants must have a wet ink signature of a Federal or State Judge (not city, town or village) supported by an affidavit.

IRS seizure requires a wet ink signature of a Federal Judge and two form affidavits they are (1) IRS Form 56 Fiduciary relationship and (2) IRS Form 4490 Proof of claim; both must be signed under notary/magistrate.

Bill of Rights Amendment IV: The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.

Sheriffs must refuse warrant execution without signatures and affidavits, to proceed without would be a vilation of their oath and therefore in bad behavior.

SWAT: Any time any police force including federal agents uses SWAT and raid attacks, usually in the middle of the night, against one of the People because they “allegedly” owe money is an assault upon Liberty and the Sheriff is obligated by oath to stop it and make arrests if necessary.

RIGHT TO TRAVEL

The right to travel canot be licensed “The right of the citizen to travel upon the public highways and to transport his property thereon, either by carriage or by automobile, is not a mere privilege which a city may prohibit or permit at will, but a common right which he has under the right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.” Thompson v Smith, 154 SE 579.

“Even the legislature has no power to deny to a citizen the right to travel upon the highway and transport his property in the ordinary course of his business or pleasure, though this right may be regulated in accordance with the public interest and convenience “Regulated” here means stop lights, signs, etc. NOT a privilege that requires permission or unconstitutional taxation; i.e. – licensing, mandatory insurance, vehicle registration, etc., requiring financial consideration, which are more illegal taxes.” Chicago Motor Coach v Chicago, 169 NE 22

Blacks 2nd, “License: In the law of contracts, is a permission, accorded by a competent authority, conferring the right to do some act which without such authorization would be illegal, or would be a trespass or tort.”

RIGHTS

The claim and exercise of a constitution right cannot be converted into a crime4. Miller v. U.S.,

INALIENABLE (Blacks 4th) Not subject to alienation (separation); the characteristic of those things which cannot be bought or sold or transferred from one person to another, such as rivers and public highways, and certain personal rights; e. g., liberty. Inalienable; incapable of being aliened, that is, sold and transferred.

RIGHT (Blacks 4th) “Rights” are defined generally as “powers of free action.” And the primal rights pertaining to men are undoubtedly enjoyed by human beings purely as such, being grounded in personality, and existing antecedently to their recognition by positive law. FREE. Not subject to legal constraint of another. Unconstrained; having power to follow the dictates of his own will. Not subject to the dominion of another. Not compelled to involuntary servitude. Used in this sense as opposed to “slave.”

Rights are not a crime We the People have right to exercise rights, right to practice law, right to proceed in courts without cost, right to travel, right of privacy, right to be let alone and right to defend just to name a few. In conclusion I have a right to do anything I please as long as I do not injure another or currupt the morals of a minor.

DUE PROCESS

Bill of Rights Amendment V: “No person shall be held to answer for a capital, or otherwise infamous crime, unless on a presentment or indictment of a Grand Jury, except in cases arising in the land or naval forces, or in the Militia, when in actual service in time of War or public danger; nor shall any person be subject for the same offence to be twice put in jeopardy of life or limb; nor shall be compelled in any criminal case to be a witness against himself, nor be deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor shall private property be taken for public use, without just compensation.”

The question is what is an Infamous crime: Blacks Law 4th states: “A crime which entails infamy (state of dishonor) upon one who has committed it. Butler v. Wentworth, 84 Me. 25, 24 A. 456, 17 L.R.A. 764. The term “infamous” e., without fame or good report—was applied at common law to certain crimes, upon the conviction of which a person became incompetent to testify as a witness. A crime punishable by imprisonment.”

Conclusion: Anybody that is facing jail time “MUST” be indcited and tried in a Court of Law, a summons or a police report is not sufficient. Additionally there is a common law maxim that states “in order for there to be a crime there must be a sworn affidavit by an injured party and the state cannot be that injured party.”

Any Sheriffs finding that he inherited the housing of prisoners in the County Jail that did not get due process, is housing political prisoners and would be guilty of conspiracy if he did not do the right thing as soon as he awakened and realized it.

Any court that does not necessitate due process, would not be a Court of Law; city courts, town courts and village courts do not necessitate due process but statutes. So, what is the solution? The answer is to petition the Grand Jury in a Federal Court for a Habeas Corpus and the court will demand proof of due process and if they fail to prove due process the Court will order their release. If you cannot find a Common Law Grand Jury in your Federal District we already have jury pools nation-wide in all ninety-four (94) Federal Districts in America and our Administrators can help initiate the paper work and court process.

JURISDICTION

Only Courts of Record, a/k/a Common Law Courts have jurisdiction over the People. All courts of record proceed with a tribunal a/k/a Jury under the rules of Common Law. All city, town, criminal, and village courts are not courts of record because they proceed according to the rules of chancery and not law and therefore have no jurisdiction over the People. If a Judge refuses to answer the accused by what authority they act then they do not have jurisdiction. The only answer is “Common Law”, U.S. Constitution article VI.

“Trial court acts without jurisdiction when it acts without inherent or common law authority, …” State v. Rodriguez, 725 A.2d 635, 125 Md.App 428, cert den 731 A.2d 971,354 Md. 573 (1999)

Any court that proceeds with summary judgments are not common law courts and have no jurisdiction over the People.

Summary proceeding: Blacks 4th “Any proceeding by which a controversy is settled, case disposed of, or trial conducted, in a prompt and simple manner, without the aid of a jury, without presentment or indictment, or in other respects out of the regular course of the common law. In procedure, proceedings are said to be summary ‘when they are short and simple in comparison with regular proceedings; ie., in comparison with the proceedings which alone would have been applicable, either in the same or analogous cases, if summary proceedings had not been available.” Sweet. See Phillips v. Phillips, 8 N.J.L. 122.

“As to the construction, with reference to Common Law, an important cannon of construction is that constitutions must be construed to reference to the Common Law. The Common Law, so permitted destruction of the abatement of nuisances by summary proceedings1 and is was never supposed that a constitutional provision was intended to interfere with this established principle and although there is no common law of the United States in a sense of a national customary law as distinguished from the common law of England, adopted in the several states. In interpreting the Federal Constitution, recourse may still be had to the aid of the Common Law of England. It has been said that without reference to the common law, the language of the Federal Constitution could not be understood.” – 16American Jurisprudence 2d., Sec. 114:

“If there is no sworn affidavit by an injured party there is no crime, there can be no case: No more than an affidavit is necessary to make the prima facie case.”  United States v. Kis, 658 F.2d 526, 536 (7th Cir. 1981); Cert. Denied, 50 U.S. L. W. 2169; S. Ct. March 22, 1982

Allegations in an affidavit in support of a motion (action) must be considered as true in absence of counter-affidavit.” Group v Finletter, Group v Finletter, 108 F. Supp. 327

“Silence can only be equated with fraud where there is a legal or moral duty to speak, or where an inquiry left unanswered would be intentionally misleading.” U.S. v. Tweel, 550 F.2d 297, 299. See also U.S. v. Prudden, 424 F.2d 1021, 1032; Carmine v. Bowen, 64 A. 932.

“The appropriate party to attest to the facts is the plaintiff himself, not the plaintiff’s attorney, an attorney’s affidavit that is not based upon personal knowledge is without value and is insufficient as an affidavit.” Romel v. Reale, 155 A.D.2d 747, 547 N.Y.S.2d 691 (3d Dep’t 1989)

Any court that proceed against the People with statutes and not the law of the land are not common law courts and have no jurisdiction over the People.

“All codes, rules, and regulations are for government authorities only, not human/Creators in accordance with God’s laws. All codes, rules, and regulations are unconstitutional and lacking due process…” Rodriques v. Ray Donavan (U.S. Department of Labor) 769 F. 2d 1344, 1348 (1985).

“All laws, rules and practices which are repugnant to the Constitution are null and void” Marbury v. Madison, 5th US (2 Cranch) 137, 180

“For a crime to exist, there must be an injured party. There can be no sanction or penalty imposed upon one because of this exercise of Constitutional rights.”– Sherar v. Cullen, 481 F. 945.

“The general rule is that an unconstitutional statute, though having the form and name of law, is in reality no law, but is wholly void and ineffective for any purpose, since its unconstitutionality dates from the time of its enactment… In legal contemplation, it is as inoperative as if it had never been passed… Since an unconstitutional law is void, the general principles follow that it imposes no duties, confers no right, creates no office, bestows no power or authority on anyone, affords no protection and justifies no acts performed under it… A void act cannot be legally consistent with a valid one. An unconstitutional law cannot operate to supersede any existing law. Indeed insofar as a statute runs counter to the fundamental law of the land, (the Constitution) it is superseded thereby. No one is bound to obey an unconstitutional law and no courts are bound to enforce it.” [Bonnett v. Vallier, 116 N.W. 885, 136 Wis. 193 (1908); NORTON v. SHELBY COUNTY, 118 U.S. 425 (1886)]

“There, every man is independent of all laws, except those prescribed by nature. He is not bound by any institutions formed by his fellowman without his consent.” [Cruden v. Neale, 2 N.C. 338 (1796) 2 S.E.]

“Under our system of government upon the individuality and intelligence of the citizen, the state does not claim to control him/her, except as his/her conduct to others, leaving him/her the sole judge as to all that affects himself/herself.” Mugler v. Kansas 123 U.S. 623, 659-60.

Sheriffs are not to carry out the decisions of courts not of record and have a duty to arrest judges and prosecutors who continue to precede under the color of law to prosecute We the People.

THE COMMON LAW COURT STRUCTURE

  1. “The Tribunal (grand or trial jury) A judicial tribunal  having attributes and exercising functions independently of the person of the magistrate designated generally to hold it.” Jones v. Jones, 188 Mo.App. 220, 175 S.W. 227, 229; Ex parte Gladhill, 8 Metc. Mass., 171, per Shaw, C.J. See, also, Ledwith v. Rosalsky, 244 N.Y. 406, 155 N.E. 688, 689][Black’s Law Dictionary, 4th Ed., 425, 426
  2. Magistrate (maintains order has no power to judge)
  3. Coroner (usually in murder cases and can perform the duties of a magistrate)
  4. Prosecutor (district attorney or U.S. attorney)
  5. Bailiff (Sheriffs’ or Marshalls’ Deputies) without a Sheriff or a Marshal there can be no common law court because there would be no one to enforce the law (Constitution). The Sheriff and the Marshal has a duty to arrest any elected or appointed court officer if they violate the Peoples unalienable rights and this includes the Magistrate (Judge) and the prosecutor.

LAW v STATUTES

Laws are created by God (common law) and written in the hearts of all men thou shall not kill, thou shall not steal and simply put thou shall do no harm. Statutes are written by men to control society. Lawful statutes that become law are governed by two documents the U.S. Constitution and the Bill of Rights. Constitutions are written and initiated by the People to give government limited but necessary powers. U.S. legislative power is limited to eighteen (18) powers see U.S. Constitution Article I Section 8, and Quo Warranto from We the People, filed in all 94 Federal District Courts, served upon all State and U.S. Governments reminding them of their limited powers. All state constitutions are restricted by the U.S. Constitution.

U.S. Constitution Article VI “This Constitution, and the laws of the United States which shall be made in pursuance thereof; and all treaties made, or which shall be made, under the authority of the United States, shall be the supreme law of the land; and the judges in every state shall be bound thereby, anything in the Constitution or laws of any State to the contrary notwithstanding.”

“Rights” are defined generally as “powers of free action.” And the primal rights pertaining to men are undoubtedly enjoyed by human beings purely as such, being grounded in personality and existing antecedently to their recognition by positive law. Being free is to be not subject to legal constraint of another. Being unconstrained is having power to follow the dictates of one’s own will; not subject to the dominion of another; not compelled to involuntary servitude as opposed to “slave.” [Black’s Law 4th edition]

“Rights are not a crime; the claim and exercise of a constitution right cannot be converted into a crime.” [Miller v. U.S. 230 F 486 at 489].

There can be no sanction or penalty imposed upon one because of his exercise of Constitution rights.” [Sherar vs. Cullen 481 F 2D 946, (1973)].

We find it intolerable that one constitutional right should have to be surrendered in order to assert another.” [Simmons vs. U.S. 390, U.S. 389(1968)].

The claim and exercise of a constitution right cannot be converted into a crime.” [Miller v. U.S. 230 F 486 at 489].

“Where rights secured by the Constitution are involved, there can be no rule making or legislation which would abrogate them” [Miranda v. Arizona, 384 U.S. 436, 491]

Governments use statutes to control the will of society and the individuals. This kind of statutory control dates back to Babylon and as a government ratchets down the control of the People, they become more and more authoritarian, whereas egotistical power hungry people fill the positions, that lord over the People to the point that just challenging these People will find them in jail, whether they are guilty of a crime or not. A Society will be as just as its courts. The American People do not need government to control their will and punish ttheir every action, thats what totalitarian governments do.

Under common law We the People are responsible for our own actions, this is written in the hearts of men and if we injure another just courts require restitution not punishment, whereas crimes often require both restitution and punishment that actually restores people back into society. Clearly our out of control judiciary does not, will not and cannot accomplish this goal because they rule by status quo, statutes and vindictiveness and not just laws. The following videos prove the point.

Constitution for the United States of America

“The tax which will be paid for education is not more than the thousandth part of what will be paid to kings, priests andnobleswhowillriseupifweleavethepeopletoignorance.”– Thomas Jefferson

“I know no safe depositary of the ultimate powers of the society but the people themselves; and, if we think them not enlightened enough to exercise their control with a wholesome discretion, the remedy is not to take it from them, but to inform their discretion by education. This is the true corrective of abuses of constitutional power.” –  Thomas Jefferson

AUTHORITY

FIRST PRINCIPLES DUE PROCESS

The County Sheriff and the U.S. Marshal are not in office to serve government servants they are there to serve the People by guarding against government abuse. They are to make sure that the accused receive Due Process. If the County Sheriff and the U.S. Marshal do not understand Due Process they are to forthwith learn or resign.

The County Sheriff and the U.S. Marshal are to make sure that no warrant is executed without a sworn affidavit and a wet ink signature of a judge without which it is no warrant and cannot be executed. The County Sheriff and the U.S. Marshal are to receive no prisoners that have not been indicted by a Common Law Grand Jury.

Amendment V No person shall be held to answer for a capital, or otherwise infamous crime, unless on a presentment or indictment of a Grand Jury

The County Sheriff and the U.S. Marshal are to make sure that Habeas Corpus is obeyed and if the court and or witnesses fail to respond it is the duty of the County Sheriff and or the U.S. Marshal to release the prisoner(s) immediately.

U.S. Constitution Article I Section 9 Clause 2 The privilege of the writ of habeas corpus shall not be suspended

Due course of law, this phrase is synonymous with due process of law or law of the land and means law in its regular course of administration through courts of justice.” – Kansas Pac. Ry. Co. v. Dunmeyer 19 KAN 542

Amendment V of the Constitution of the United States provides: No person shall—be deprived of life, liberty, or property without due process of law. A similar provision exists in all the state constitutions; the phrases due course of law, and the law of the land are sometimes used; but all three of these phrases have the same meaning and that applies conformity with the ancient and customary laws of the English people or laws indicated by parliament.Davidson V. New Orleans 96 U.S. 97, 24, L Ed 616

The Due Process Clause has its origin in Magna Carta. As originally drafted, the Great Charter provided that “[n]o freeman shall be taken, or imprisoned, or be disseised of his freehold, or liberties, or free customs, or be outlawed, or exiled, or any otherwise destroyed; nor will we not pass upon him, nor condemn him, but by lawful judgment of his peers, or by the law of the land.” MagnaCarta, ch. 29, in 1 E. Coke, The Second Part of the Institutes of the Laws of England 45 (1797)KERRY v. DIN Decided June 15, 2015


The Simplicity of Law

Statutes that control men places men under the rule of other men and thereby enslave them. Common Law places men under the rule of the Governor of the Universe, who thereby rules over them. And the Governor of the Universe established His bench which is the Jury who is to judge under his principles.

Men must be governed by God or they will be ruled by tyrants.William Penn

 

There are two Common Law principles (maxims) which state that (1) for there to be a crime there must be a victim (corpus delecti). In the absence of a victim there can be no crime, and (2) there must be a remedy for every injury.

… In the third volume of his Commentaries, page 23, Blackstone states two cases in which a remedy is afforded by mere operation of law. “In all other cases,” he says, it is a general and indisputable rule that where there is a legal right, there is also a legal remedy by suit or action at law whenever that right is invaded. And afterwards, page 109 of the same volume, he says, I am next to consider such injuries as are cognizable by the Courts of common law. And herein I shall for the present only remark that all possible injuries whatsoever that did not fall within the exclusive cognizance of either the ecclesiastical, military, or maritime tribunals are, for that very reason, within the cognizance of the common law courts of justice, for it is a settled and invariable principle in the laws of England that every right, when withheld, must have a remedy, and every injury its proper redress…” 5 U.S. 137,

Marbury v. Madison

 

Corpus delicti. The body of a crime. The body (material substance) upon which a crime has been committed, e. g., the corpse of a murdered man, the charred remains of a house burned down. In a derivative sense, the substance or foundation of a crime; the substantial fact that a crime has been committed.People v. Dick, 37 Cal. 281

For a crime to exist there must be an injured party. There can be no sanction or penalty imposed  upon one because of this exercise of Constitutional rights.” Sherar v. Cullen, 481 F. 945

COMMON LAW IS THE LAW OF THE LAND

America was built upon God’s Law which is called “Natural Law” or “Common Law”. AT LAW, Blacks 4th: This phrase is used to point out that a thing is to be done according to the course of the common law; it is distinguished from a proceeding in equity.

 

THE LAWS OF NATURE AND OF NATURES GOD When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them … We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. Declaration of Independence

U.S. Constitution Article III Section 2: The judicial power shall extend to all cases, in law

 

The common law is the real law, the Supreme Law of the land, the code, rules, regulations, policy and statutes are “not the law.” Self v. Rhay, 61 Wn (2d) 261

Common law as distinguished from law created by the enactment of legislatures, the common law comprises the body of those principles and rules of action, relating to the government and security of persons and property, which derive their authority solely from usages and customs of immemorial antiquity, or from the judgments and decrees of the courts recognizing, affirming, and enforcing such usages and customs; and, in this sense, particularly the ancient unwritten law of England.” 1 Kent, Comm. 492 Western Union Tel. Co. v. Call Pub. Co., 21 S.Ct. 561, 181 U.S. 92, 45 L.Ed. 765; Barry

  1. Port Jervis, 72 N.Y.S. 104, 64 App. Div. 268; U. S. v. Miller, D.C.Wash., 236 F. 798, 800.

 

As to the construction, with reference to Common Law, an important cannon of construction is that constitutions must be construed to reference to the Common Law.” The Common Law, so permitted destruction of the abatement of nuisances by summary proceedings and it was never supposed that a constitutional provision was intended to interfere with this established principle and although there is no common law of the United States in a sense of a national customary law as distinguished from the common law of England, adopted in the several states. In interpreting the Federal Constitution, recourse may still be had to the aid of the Common Law of England. It has been said that without reference to the common law, the language of the Federal Constitution could not be understood.” 16Am Jur 2d., Sec. 114

  • Constitution Article VI Clause 2: This Constitution, and the laws of the United States which shall be made in pursuance thereof; and all treaties made, or which shall be made, under the authority of the United States, shall be the supreme law of the land; and the judges in every state shall be bound thereby, anything in the Constitution or laws of any State to the contrary

THE FOUNDATION OF GODS LAW is found in Mathew 22:35-40– “Then one of them, which was a lawyer, asked him a question, tempting him, and saying, Master, which is the great commandment in the law? Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.

 

We the People empowered the Legislative Branch to write codes and statutes to control money, commerce, naturalization, bankruptcies, counterfeiting, law of the sea, etc. U.S. Constitution Article I Section 6 and 9. We the People did “NOT” give Congress power to write codes and statutes to  control the behavior of We the People. We the People are the master Congress are our servants. To legislate We the Peoples’ behavior is to rule over the People, servants do not rule over the People.

The BAR teaches lawyers that the Common Law has been abrogated and lawyers advise all elected servants that the Common Law has been abrogated and that is advocating the overthrow the “Law of the Land” which is the overthrow of the United States of America in violation of 18 USC §2385 Advocating overthrow of Government: Whoever knowingly or willfully advocates, abets, advises,  or teaches the duty, necessity, desirability, or propriety of overthrowing or destroying the government of the United States or the government of any State, Territory, District or Possession thereof

 

THE COUNTY SHERIFF

 

COUNTY SHERIFF conservator of the peace — The County Sheriff is a Constitutional Officer; elected by the People; and, bound by oath as guardian of the Peoples’ unalienable rights secured by the

 

Constitution. The Constitution for the United States of America and its capstone Bill of Rights is the “Law of the Land”; and, all statutes and state constitutions repugnant to the Constitution for the United States of America are null and void. If the Sheriff lacks a full understanding of the Constitution which is “Common Law”, it  would stand to reason that he is vulnerable to violation of his oath in that he may not recognize and comprehend when judges and politicians   violate   the   Common   Law;   thus,   making     himself

technically guilty of treason.

 

THE DUTIES, RESPONSIBILITIES AND AUTHORITIES OF THE SHERIFF CANNOT BE DIMINISHED by those

in the legislature and courts; nor can it be diminished by any state constitution. When it comes to enforcing the Law, which is to say enforcing the Constitution for the United States of America, the Sheriff, being the “Chief Law Enforcement Officer”, answers to We the People; no one else, not even the Governor; like any other elected official, the Sheriff cannot be removed from office by another elected official. He can only be removed by the People at the ballot box; or, by recall; or, by indictment by the Grand Jury.

The United States Supreme Court said: “The Sheriff is the ‘Chief Executive  and  Administrative Officer’ of a county, chosen by popular election. His principal duties are in aid of the criminal and civil courts of record [Common Law Courts] such as serving process, summoning juries, executing judgments, holding judicial sales and the like. He is also the ‘Chief Conservator of the Peace’ within his territorial jurisdiction.”

The Sheriff, being the Chief Law Enforcement Officer and the highest Peace Officer of the entire County in which he was elected, is under the obligation to secure the peace; he answers to the People alone – unlike the State Police, who are code enforcement officers, serving the state and answering to the governor; and, unlike city, town or village police, who are also code enforcement officers serving the corporate municipalities, answering to commissioners or mayors. All these officers have a conflict of interest because they have no constitutional authority or concerns; they serve the system of codes and statutes instead of upholding the Constitution and serving the People; whereas, the Sheriff reports directly to the People, not the corporate municipalities; the duties, responsibilities and authorities of the County Sheriff, as a Constitutional Officer, are, at a minimum, the same as they were when the State Constitutions were originally written.

When a Sheriff or a U.S. Marshall consults a BAR judge, a BAR attorney or a bureaucrat to ask whether the judge, attorney or bureaucrat is acting outside of his authority, the Sheriff is doing something no different than consulting the fox as to whether the fox is raiding the hen house. If the Sheriff cannot ascertain whether a judge, or any other government servant, is abusing his powers, thereby violating the unalienable rights of the People, without asking that servant whether he is doing so, how can the Sheriff perform his duty? If a politician, judge or prosecutor violates the Constitution, it is the duty of the Sheriff and the U.S. Marshall to call the Grand Jury and ask the People for an Indictment. This is the Sheriff’s responsibility. Were the Sheriff to seek “permission” of a prosecutor  or judge for an arrest of a politician, judge or prosecutor whom the Sheriff finds in violation of the Constitution, the Sheriff would be disempowering his own authority; he would be functioning as a tool to the very ones violating the Constitution; he would, thereby, be violating his own oath. Obviously then, no politician can come between the Sheriff and the People. Regardless of what they have been taught, it is the duty of the Sheriff to seek an indictment, not the prosecutor. Prosecutors call the Grand Jury when the state has an issue; but, the Peoples’ business is the Sheriff’s business; and, it is the Sheriff’s duty to protect the People from those who would encroach upon their rights. Likewise, the courts were designed to exist for the purpose of serving and protecting the People from criminals and tyrants.

What the Sheriff needs to realize is that all states, cities, towns, and villages in America have been moving towards corporatism; that is to say they have corporate charters; and, that the police forces, such as State Police, City Police, Town Police and Village Police work for the corporation, not the People; they are hired by the corporate municipality to uphold codes, not the Constitution; they are code enforcement officers, not law enforcement officers; and, it is the duty of the Sheriff to know  when the People within his county are suffering violation of their unalienable rights by code enforcement officers; and, if he fails that duty, then that County is Lawless and the Sheriff is to blame.

The Sheriff works for and answers to the People alone. His sole duty is to protect the unalienable rights of the People within his County and within the courts against police brutality, tyrannical judges and abusive government agencies. Sheriffs rarely perform the duties that they were actually elected to exercise, because they are, unfortunately, constitutionally ignorant.

The Sheriff is to make sure that “Due Process of Law” is met before any arrest or seizure by police enforcement within his County; and, before any executions of judgments. Even a U.S. Marshal or other Federal Agent cannot execute a Warrant of any sort within a county without first notifying the Sheriff; and, it is the duty of the Sheriff to make sure “Due Process of Law” is met before allowing a Code Enforcement Officer, a U.S. Marshal or other Federal Agent to proceed. He is also duty bound to prevent SWAT team raids against, innocent under the law, code violators.

DUE PROCESS

Amendment V No person shall be held to answer for a capital, or otherwise infamous crime, unless on a presentment or indictment of a Grand Jury, … nor be deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law;

 

ALL ARREST WARRANTS MUST:

1.)  have a “wet-ink signature of a judge”; and,

2.) have a “Sworn Affidavit” attached by a “witness” or “injured party”. If there is no injured party, there is no crime. The State can never be the injured party.

 

Few Internal Revenue Service Liens are lawful; and, yet, County Clerks, on a daily basis, file “Notices of Lien” in counties without proof of “Due Process”; and, Sheriffs execute them, becoming complicit in conspiracy under the “Color of Law” – a crime. In order for an IRS Lien to be lawful the following documents “must” be served:

  • There must be a warrant with a wet ink signature of a Judge, not a
  • An Affidavit of Proof of Claim, i.e., an IRS Form 4490;
  • An Affidavit of Proof of Fiduciary Relationship, i.e., an IRS Form 56

 

All of the above “must” accompany the “Notice of Lien” before the Clerk can file the Lien; and,  before the Sheriff can act upon such Lien.

All Federal or State Warrants “MUST” have the following:

 

  • Warrant must have a wet ink signature of a Judge, not a
  • There must be a sworn Affidavit by an accusing party accompanying the

 

Sheriffs “MUST” prevent the execution of any warrants served upon person or property by Federal, State, County, City, Town or Village code enforcement officers that do not meet the two requirements above. If there is no indictment the Sheriff can only hold the person for 48 hours after which they must be released. If the arrest with or without an indictment is challenged with a Habeas Corpus and the Party holding the person does not answer within three days the Sheriff “MUST” release the person. THIS IS DUE PROCESS. Rarely should a person be arrested for a crime before receiving an indictment, Sheriffs should use their common sense before permitting Federal and State arrests in his County without an indictment. All code violation arrests must show constitutional authority for the legislation of such codes. Any code violation that violates the unalienable right(s) of a person is null and void.

Amendment IV The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.

There can be no sanction or penalty imposed upon one because of his exercise of constitutional rights.” Sherar v. Cullen, 481 F. 2d 946 (1973)

The claim and exercise of a Constitution right cannot be converted into a crime”… “a denial of them would be a denial of due process of law“. Simmons v. United States, 390 U.S. 377 (1968)

If the state does convert your right into a privilege and issue a license and a fee for it, you can ignore the license and a fee and engage the right with impunity.”  Shuttlesworth

v. Birmingham AI. 373 US 262:(1962)

 

All town, city and village courts are administrative courts; they are not adhering to the “Law of the Land”, i.e., the Constitution; and, therefore, they have “no power” to fine or incarcerate; therefore,

 

every time a County Sheriff receives a prisoner from these courts, the Sheriff becomes complicit in conspiracy under the “Color of Law” – a crime.

When a judge violates the right of a People to Due Process in court; and, the Sheriff does nothing, the Sheriff becomes complicit in conspiracy under the “Color of Law” – a crime.

When the Sheriff seeks the consent of a prosecutor before arresting a judge, the Sheriff transfers his duty to the prosecutor; the Sheriff violates his oath – a crime. When the Sheriff witnesses, or receives a Sworn Affidavit that a judge is violating the unalienable rights of a People, the Sheriff is required by his oath to arrest the judge; and, if a prosecutor tries to commit “Felony Rescue” by dismissing the case, the Sheriff is required by his oath to arrest the prosecutor as well. The Sheriff is well served by first calling forth a “Grand Jury” to seek an “Indictment”; should the Grand Jury then issue an Indictment the Sheriff is required by his oath to arrest the judge. History recalls that the Grand Jury  was normally called by the Sheriff or Coroner; rarely by the prosecutor. The Sheriff can call the Grand Jury at will; and, as often as he wills; and, he should in order to secure an indictment upon which to base an arrest. Since legislative provisions were made for the prosecutor to call for the Grand Jury overtime the State monopolized on the calling of the Grand Jury and overtime the State morphed into the “injured party” in the name of the People, resulting today in the absence of restitution to the real “injured party”; and thereby removing the common law maxim “there must be a remedy for every injury”.

The Sheriff can arrest any Federal Agent or Police officer whom he finds violating the unalienable rights of a People. The Sheriff can arrest the Governor or any elected or appointed official whom he finds violating the unalienable rights of a People. If the Sheriff feels more comfortable seeking an indictment before an arrest, he should do so.

The Sheriff’s “Rule of Thumb” when it comes to knowing the authority of a Judge, should be “American Jurisprudence”; any Judge acting outside of jurisprudence should be arrested for violating the unalienable rights of their victim.

CONSTITUTIONAL OFFICER V. CODE ENFORCEMENT OFFICER: The principal challenge for the Sheriff is embodied in code enforcement officers. Codes and statutes that attempt to control the behavior of People are repugnant to the Constitution; and, are, therefore, null and void. Of course We the People, through our Constitution, vested our Legislatures, at both the Federal and State level, to write statutes; but, not statutes that violate our unalienable rights. Our Constitution never vested County, City, Township or Village Legislatures with statute-writing powers. The Sheriff has a duty to uphold the Constitution. The dilemma of the Sheriff, then, in order to obey the United States Supreme Court rulings, and the United States Constitution to uphold his oath; is that he must first understand the Constitution; and, that is the purpose of this course.

Does the Sheriff have the fortitude to keep his oath to uphold the Common Law? Will he betray his oath; and, therefore, the People who have entrusted him as their Constitutional law enforcer? Will he uphold the Common Law above the will of BAR-driven legislators, judges, prosecutors and their code enforcement officers, i.e. those who truly believe that statutes are above the Constitution?   Treasonous

 

BAR schools have been teaching codes and statutes as law for more than fifty (50) years. If we fail now to correct this error, America will be lost.

WE HAVE A REPUBLICAN FORM OF GOVERNMENT: A form of government guaranteed by The Constitution for the United States of America at Article IV, Section 4; which means we have a government that in mandated by our Constitution to obey the Rule of Law, which, in our case, is Common Law.

“The United States shall guarantee to every state in this union a republican form of government; and, shall protect each of them against invasion.” – U.S. Constitution Article IV Section 4

When an organization like the BAR advocates the overthrow of the Constitution, that is to say, the overthrow of Common Law, such organization is advocating the overthrow of our Government in violation of 18 USC §2385.

ADVOCATING OVERTHROW OF GOVERNMENT: “Whoever knowingly or willfully advocates, abets, advises or teaches the duty, necessity, desirability or propriety of overthrowing or destroying the government of the United States, or the government of any State, Territory, District or Possession thereof, or the government of any political subdivision therein, by force or violence, or by the assassination of any officer of any such government; or Whoever, with intent to cause the overthrow or destruction of any such government; prints, publishes, edits, issues, circulates, sells, distributes or publicly displays any written or printed matter advocating, advising or teaching the duty, necessity, desirability or propriety of overthrowing or destroying any government in the United States by force or violence; or attempts to do so…” – 18 USC §2385

WHEN A JUDGE VIOLATES THE CONSTITUTION; were the Sheriff to seek permission from a prosecutor to seek an indictment; were the prosecutor to fail to call forth a Grand Jury to seek such an indictment; and, were the Sheriff to acquiesce to this; the Sheriff would be disempowering his own authority; submitting to the will of the prosecutor; breaking his oath; becoming part of the conspiracy to cover up a crime; guilty of felony rescue – a crime. When a judge breaks the law, it is the duty of the sheriff to arrest the judge; and, go directly to the Grand Jury for an Indictment. It has only been recently, in the last fifty (50) years or so, that the Sheriff has been unlawfully told that he must first filter the crime through the BARtaught prosecutors who work for the state, not the People; and, who, almost always, refuse to bring a crime before the Grand Jury when a state official is involved. This is “exactly why” America is in a Constitutional crisis. Only by educating the Sheriff can We the People, working with the Sheriff, save America.

Another obstacle, a two-fold obstacle, that the Sheriff must recognize is the puppet Grand Jury and the puppet Trial jury. Because these juries are controlled by the foxes; which is to say they are controlled by judges and prosecutors; the jurors are given their guidelines upon which to deliberate by the all- controlling  BAR  prosecutor.  The Jurors  are instructed  in  the statutes;  told  they must  follow these

 

statutes as law; the BAR prosecutor in this way is trumping Common Law; which, of course, is “jury tampering” – a crime.

The ultimate dilemma for the Sheriff is: “What am I to do?” The solution is simple: take the case to the Common Law Grand Jury. Clearly, the Sheriff cannot take a case involving a judge, a prosecutor or a corporate pay-rolled official to the unlawful puppet jury; a jury controlled by the foxes. Lysander Spooner said:

Any government that is its own judge of; and, determines authoritatively for the people what are its own powers over the people; is an absolute government, of course. It has  all the powers that it chooses to exercise. There is no other; or, at least, no more accurate definition of despotism, than this. On the other hand, any people, that judge of, and determine authoritatively for the government, what are their own liberties against the government, of course, retain all the liberties they wish to enjoy. And this  is freedom. At least, it is freedom to them; because, although it may be theoretically imperfect, it, nevertheless, corresponds to their highest notions of freedom.” – Trial by Jury, 1852

We the People, across America, in every state of the union, are doing exactly that which we should have been doing all along. We were helped to discover these truths through a United States Supreme Court decision in which Justice Antonin Scalia, writing for the majority, made clear the Law of the Land when he said:

Because the Grand Jury is an institution separate from the courts, over whose functioning the courts do not preside, we think it clear that, as a general matter at   least, no such supervisory judicial authority exists; and, that the Disclosure Rule applied here exceeded the Tenth Circuit’s authority. [R]ooted in long centuries of Anglo-American history, the Grand Jury is mentioned in the Bill of Rights; but, not in the body of the Constitution. It has not been textually assigned, therefore, to any of the branches described in the first three Articles. It is a constitutional fixture in its own right. In fact, the whole theory of its function is that it belongs to no branch of the institutional government, serving as a kind of buffer or referee between the Government and the people. Although the Grand Jury normally operates, of course, in the courthouse and under judicial auspices, its institutional relationship with the judicial branch has traditionally been, so to speak, at arm’s length. Judges’ direct involvement in the functioning of the Grand Jury has generally been confined to the constitutive one of calling the grand jurors together and administering their oaths of office.” – U.S. v. Williams, 112 S.Ct. 1735 504 U.S. 36 118 L.Ed.2d 352, 1992

 

This is the authority by which We the People act; and, by which we come with a determination to put that fox back in its cage and save America. Now the Sheriff knows and the question before him is: “Are you going to continue feeding that fox; thereby participate in his treasonous acts against the People of  the  United  States  of  America; or,  will  you  develop  a  constitutional  back-bone through


education; and, join the People to bring law and order back into our courts; and, thereby back into  our government; and, save America?”

Clearly it takes fortitude for a People to step up, take control and do that which is right for God, country and posterity. This is the Sheriff’s duty. This is the moment in time and history that will define integrity or lack thereof. We the People under the Unified United States Common Law Grand Jury have tolerated the inaction of our Sheriffs because we understand, having once been without understanding of the Constitution ourselves. We have awakened to the hard reality; we have decided to do that which is just for ourselves and for our posterity. Now our Sheriffs know! The choices are: 1.) step up and enforce the law of the land; 2.) resign; or, 3.) prepare to face the Grand Jury for treason. The due time is upon us.

The Constitution for the United States of America is a Common Law document which demands obedience to the Common Law.

This Constitution and the laws of the United States which shall be made in pursuance thereof; and, all treaties made, or which shall be made, under the authority of the United States, shall be the supreme Law of the Land; and, the judges in every state shall be bound thereby, anything in the Constitution or laws of any State to the contrary notwithstanding.” – U.S. Constitution Article VI Clause 2

Therefore, when there is a conflict between the Law of the Land and the statutes of the corporate charters, the Constitution must prevail. Only those statutes, for which We the People have given our consent for legislators to write, are law; law consistent with the Constitution. Our Sheriffs have now embarked upon the Constitutional Course of “Law 101”; yet, it does not get any more difficult than this.

A sheriff well trained in constitutional (law) enforcement can uphold the Constitution. The Sheriff and his deputies have been trained in the law of statute and code enforcement, in technique and self- defense. Now it is the sheriff’s responsibility to make sure that he and his deputies are well trained in the Constitution for the United States of America so they can serve the People. Were any of his deputies to violate the Constitution, even unknowingly, the sheriff would bear the guilt and the responsibility complicit with his deputies.

The sheriff is responsible for his entire county, including the court and the jail. Wherever legislators, past or present, have removed the Duties of the Constitutional Sheriff; claiming to have entrusted them to code enforcement officers; the People can be sure that the Common Law of our Constitution is not being applied in our courts, in our jails or in our counties; for the very nature of the system of code enforcement serves the corporate government charters, not the People.

THE DUTY OF THE SHERIFF IN THE COURTS: Bailiffs “must be deputies of the sheriff”; trained to understand their duties. They must be approachable by the People in order that the People may report constitutional violations within the court. Bailiffs must have the fortitude to remove a judge from the bench were the judge to violate the unalienable right of a People. Unalienable rights are God-

 

given; cannot be trumped by legislators. Where there is a conflict between a statute of a legislature and the Common Law, the Constitutional Common Law must prevail. A few of the many United States Supreme Court rulings that follow are offered here for the empowerment of the Sheriff; that the Sheriff may enforce the law; that in thus honoring his oath to the Constitution, the People and the Law of the Land, the Common Law Grand Juries will rise up in full support of him.

Law of the Land”, “Due Course of Law” and “Due Process of Law” are synonymous.

All laws, rules and practices, which are repugnant to the Constitution, are null and void– Marbury v. Madison, 5th U.S. (2 Cranch) 137, 180

The general rule is that an unconstitutional statute, though having the form and name of law, is in reality no law; but, is wholly void and ineffective for any purpose, since its unconstitutionality dates from the time of its enactment… In legal contemplation, it is as inoperative as if it had never been passed… Since an unconstitutional law is void, the general principles follow that it imposes no duties, confers no right, creates no office, bestows no power or authority on anyone, affords no protection and justifies no acts performed under it… A void act cannot be legally consistent with a valid one. An unconstitutional law cannot operate to supersede any existing law. Indeed, insofar as a statute runs counter to the fundamental law of the land, (the Constitution), it is superseded thereby. No one is bound to obey an unconstitutional law; and, no courts  are bound to enforce it.” – Bonnett v. Vallier, 116 N.W. 885, 136 Wis. 193 (1908);

JURISDICTION OF THE COURTS: Courts today are de facto, operating contrary to Common Law; under the rules of chancery, not common law. Bailiffs, being deputies of the sheriff, trained to understand their duties, must ensure that courts operate according to law.

 

There are only two (2) courts that We the People have ordained to operate within America under the Constitution; called law and equity; as we read:

“The judicial power shall extend to all cases, in law and equity, arising under this Constitution, the laws of the United States, and treaties made, or which shall be made, under their authority; U.S. Constitution Article III Section 2

COURTS OF EQUITY: Have Jurisdiction where Judges hear and decide commercial/contract cases and other disputes; where there exists one jurist called the judge who is bound by the Article VI Law of the Land. Cases ruled upon in Equity Courts can be appealed to higher courts.

COURTS OF LAW: Have Jurisdiction where juries, i.e., a tribunal, hears and decides “all” criminal cases, commercial/contract cases and other disputes; all Criminal Courts are called Courts of Record; they are to proceed under Common Law. In a trial by jury, the judge is to act as administrator and can make “no Rulings”; were he to make a ruling, he would be acting under the “Color of Law” – a crime. The Constitution calls this “bad behavior” (not adhering to the Constitution); such a judge should be immediately removed from the Bench by the Bailiff; and, brought before the Grand Jury for Indictment.

“In suits at Common Law, where the value in controversy shall exceed twenty dollars

$20.00, the right of trial by jury shall be preserved; and, no fact tried by a jury shall be otherwise reexamined in any Court of the United States than according to the rules of the Common Law.– Bill of Rights Amendment VII

“The judges, both of the supreme and inferior courts, shall hold their offices during good behavior” – U.S. Constitution Article III Section 1

The requirements for a criminal case to proceed are as follows:

 

  • THERE MUST BE AN INJURED PARTY: Corpus delecti; The body of a crime; The body (material substance) upon which a crime has been committed, e. g., the corpse of a murdered man; the charred remains of a house burned down. In a derivative sense, the substance or foundation of a crime; the substantial fact that a crime has been committed.” – People v. Dick, 37 281

“For a crime to exist, there must be an injured party. There can be no sanction or penalty imposed upon one because of this exercise of Constitutional rights.” –    Sherar

v. Cullen, 481 F. 945

 

  • THERE MUST BE AN INDICTMENT BY AN “UNFETTERED” GRAND JURY: This means a Grand Jury that is not controlled by a judge or a prosecutor. If there is no indictment, a person cannot be “held” to answer:

 

“No person shall be held to answer for a capital, or otherwise infamous crime, [a crime that requires a prison sentence] unless on a presentment or indictment of a Grand Jury.

– U.S. Constitution Amendment V

 

  • ALL DECISIONS IN A COURT OF RECORD ARE BY THE JURY ALONE: Called a tribunal, without any interference from a judge. The definition of a court of record is: “A judicial tribunal having attributes and exercising functions independently of the person of the magistrate [judge] designated generally to hold it; proceeding according to the course of Common Law; its acts and judicial proceedings are enrolled, or recorded, for a perpetual memory and testimony; has power to fine or imprison for contempt; generally possesses a seal.” – Jones v. Jones, 188 Mo.App. 220, 175 S.W. 227, 229; Ex parte Gladhill, 8 Metc. , 171, per Shaw, C.J. See, also, Ledwith v.

Rosalsky, 244 N.Y. 406, 155 N.E. 688, 689; Black’s Law Dictionary, 4th Ed., 425, 426.

JUDICIAL PROCESS – WARRANTS – THE BILL OF RIGHTS: Amendment V provides that no person shall be deprived of life, liberty or property without due process of law as supported by the following U.S. Supreme Court rulings:

“…no man shall be deprived of his property without being heard in his own defense.”  

Kinney V. Beverly, 2 Hen. & M (VA) 381, 336

 

Amendment V of the Constitution for the United States provides that no person  shall

… be deprived of life, liberty or property without due process of law. A similar provision exists in all the state constitutions; the phrases ‘due course of law’, and ‘the law of the land’ are sometimes used; but, all three of these phrases have the same meaning; and, that applies conformity with the ancient and customary laws of the English people or laws indicated by parliament.” – Davidson V. New Orleans 96 U.S. 97, 24, L Ed 616

Therefore, no Warrant is to be executed by a Sheriff without a wet-ink signature of a judge; a rubber stamp or a clerk’s signature is not sufficient. No legal instrument has executional powers without a signature; and, must be accompanied with a Sworn Affidavit; this includes Federal Liens and IRS Liens. A Notice of Lien or Notice of Levy is not due process according to the Bill of Rights.

“The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers and effects  against unreasonable searches and seizures shall not be violated; and, no Warrants shall issue but upon probable cause supported by Oath or affirmation; and, particularly describing the place to be searched and the persons or things to be seized.

– Amendment IV

 

HABEAS CORPUS – “THE GREAT WRIT OF LIBERTY”: In the early days, Habeas Corpus was not connected with the idea of Liberty. It was a useful device in the struggle for control between Common Law and Equity Courts. By the middle of the fifteenth century, the issue of Habeas Corpus, together with privilege, was a wellestablished way to remove a cause from an inferior court where the defendant could show some special connection with one of the central courts which entitled him to  have his case tried there. In the early seventeenth century The Five Knights’ Case involved the clash

 

between the Stuart claims of prerogative and the Common Law; and, was, in the words of one of the judges: “the greatest cause that I ever knew in this court.” Over the centuries the Writ became a viable bulwark between the powers of government and the rights of the people in both England and the United States.

 

In the United States Habeas Corpus exists in two forms: Common Law and statutory. The Constitution for the United States of America acknowledges the right of the Peoples to the Common Law of England as it was in 1789. What is that Common Law? It does not consist of absolute, fixed and inflexible rules; but, broad and comprehensive principles based on justice, reason and common sense… The Constitution for the United States of America mandates that “The judicial Power shall extend to all Cases, in Law and Equity, arising under this Constitution, the Laws of the United States, and Treaties made, or which shall be made, under their Authority…” Habeas Corpus is a case in law, i.e., proceeding according to the Common Law in a Court of Record; therefore, it is the Grand Jury as arbiter that shall be enforcer of the law; the first Grand Jury of twenty-five (25) free men, summoned itself and wrote the following:

 

“If any of our civil servants shall have transgressed against any of the people in any respect; and, they shall ask us to cause that error to be amended without delay; or, shall have broken some one of the articles of peace or security; and, their transgression shall have been shown to four (4) Jurors of the aforesaid twenty five (25); and, if those four

  • Jurors are unable to settle the transgression, they shall come to the twenty-five (25), showing to the Grand Jury the error which shall be enforced by the law of the land.– Magna Charta, June 15, A.D. 1215, 61

 

THE   CONSTITUTION   GUARANTEES   A   REPUBLICAN   FORM   OF   GOVERNMENT:   Protecting   such

Republic against all violence, foreign and domestic violence. Thus, were a judge to enforce anything outside of his authority under the color of law, “Judicial Immunity” would be lost; it would be nothing less than lawless violence. Likewise, legislative jurisdiction not authorized by the United  States Constitution is as inoperative as though it had never been passed; and a judge that would  proceed without jurisdiction, would be indictable for treason; judges are expected to know the law. – The Constitution for the United States of America Article IV Section 4:

COLOR OF LAW: “The appearance or semblance, without the substance, of  legal right.” Black’s Law 4th; State v. Brechler, 185 Wis. 599, 202 N.W. 144, 148

“Misuse of power; possessed by virtue of state law; and, made possible only because  the wrongdoer is clothed with authority of state; is action taken under the ‘color of state law’.” – Atkins v. Lanning, 415 F. Supp. 186, 188

“When a judge knows that he lacks jurisdiction; or, acts in the face of clearly valid statutes expressly depriving him of jurisdiction; judicial immunity is lost.” –Rankin v. Howard, (1980) 633 F.2d 844, cert. den. Zeller v. Rankin, 101 S.Ct. 2020, 451   U.S.

939, 68 L.Ed 2d 326


“No judicial process, whatever form it may assume, can have any lawful authority outside of the limits of the jurisdiction of the court or judge by whom it is issued; and, an attempt to enforce it beyond these boundaries, is nothing less than lawless violence.”

– Ableman v. Booth, 21 Howard 506 (1859)

 

“An unconstitutional act is not law; it confers no right; it imposes no duties; affords no protection; it creates no office; it is in legal contemplation as inoperative as though it had never been passed.” – Norton v. Shelby County 118 US 425 p. 442

“We (judges) have no more right to decline the exercise of jurisdiction which is given, than to usurp that which is not given. The one or the other would be treason to the Constitution.” – Cohen v. Virginia, (1821), 6 Wheat. 264; U.S. v. Will, 449 U.S. 200

No State can deprive any person of life, liberty or property without due process of law; nor, deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws. Any court that ignores due process is not a Common Law Court; such an action proves a court unlawful; and, consequently, has no legal authority over the petitioner without his consent.

CONFIRMATIO CARTARUM: “Sovereign People shall not be taken or imprisoned or disseised or outlawed or exiled or anywise destroyed … but by lawful judgment of his peers or by the law of the land.” – Magna Charta Chapter 39.

“No person shall be… deprived of life, liberty or property without due process of law.”

 

DUE COURSE OF LAW: “This phrase is synonymous with ‘Due Process of Law’ or ‘Law of the Land’; and, means law in its regular course of administration through courts of justice.” [Court of Record] – Kansas Pac. Ry. Co. v. Dunmeyer 19 KAN 542.

“Law in its regular course of administration through courts of justice [Court of Record]

is due process.” – Leeper v. Texas, 139, U.S. 462, II SUP CT. 577, 35 L ED 225

 

Some have argued that the People have relinquished sovereignty through various contractual devices in which rights were not expressly reserved. However, that cannot hold because rights are unalienable. The People retain all rights of sovereignty at all times. The exercise of sovereignty by the People is further clarified when one considers that the Constitutional government agencies have no genuine sovereign power of their own; but, must rely upon such authority as is granted by the People.

In the 1930s in New York, the Judiciary and the BAR pressed for a Constitutional Convention endeavoring to eliminate the unalienable right of Habeas Corpus, among other issues. The People were so concerned about the attack on their liberties that instead of abolishing Habeas Corpus, the people submitted in writing their overwhelmingly approval.

“The privilege of a Writ or Order of Habeas Corpus shall not be suspended.” §4 Amended by Constitutional Convention of 1938; and, approved by vote of the people November 8, 1938.

 

When our founders debated the Constitution, they included Habeas Corpus as a remedy against evil: “The trial by jury in criminal cases, aided by the Habeas-Corpus Act, seems, therefore, to be alone concerned in the question. And, both of these are provided for, in the most ample manner, in the plan  of the convention.”… The creation of crimes after the commission of the fact, or, in other words, the subjecting of men to punishment for things which, when they were done, were breaches of no law, and, the practice of arbitrary imprisonments, have been, in all ages, the favorite and most formidable instruments of tyranny. The observations of the judicious Blackstone, in reference to the latter, are well worthy of recital: ‘To bereave a man of life,’ says he, ‘or, by violence to confiscate his estate without accusation or trial, would be so gross and notorious an act of despotism as must at once convey the alarm of tyranny throughout the whole nation; but, confinement of the person, by secretly hurrying him to jail, where his sufferings are unknown or forgotten, is a less public, a less striking, and, therefore, a more dangerous engine of arbitrary government.’ And, as a remedy for this fatal evil he is everywhere peculiarly emphatical in his encomiums on the Habeas-Corpus Act, which, in one place, he calls ‘the bulwark of the British Constitution.’” – Federalist Papers Nos. 83, 84, Hamilton to the People of the State of New York

“The privilege of the Writ of Habeas Corpus shall not be suspended.– U.S. Constitution Article 1 Section 9 Clause 2

THE UNITED STATES CODE TITLE 28: acknowledges that it is not the responsibility of the petitioner to know by what claim or authority the state acts; but, that the petitioner may inquire as to the cause of the restraint by Habeas Corpus. “A court, justice or judge [tribunal] entertaining an application for a Writ of Habeas Corpus shall forthwith award the Writ or issue an Order directing the respondents to Show Cause why the Writ should not be granted.” – 28 USC §2243

 

“Application for a Writ of Habeas Corpus … shall allege the facts concerning the applicant’s commitment or detention; the name of the person who has custody over him; and, by virtue of what claim or authority, if known.” – 28 USC §2242

 

When the persons holding the prisoner neglect to answer said Habeas Corpus, the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure activate; and, the prisoner must be released under the entry of Default. “When a party, against whom a judgment for affirmative relief is sought, has failed to plead or otherwise defend, as provided by these rules; and, that fact is made to appear by Affidavit or otherwise [under seal], the clerk shall enter the party’s Default.” – Federal Rules of Civil Procedure, Rule 55

  • “Whoever willfully and unlawfully removes or conceals a proceeding filed or deposited with any clerk or officer of any court of the United States; or, in any public office; or, with any judicial or public officer of the United States, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than three (3) years, or ”
  • “Whoever, having the custody of any such proceeding, willfully and unlawfully conceals, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than three (3) years, or both; and, shall forfeit his office; and, be disqualified from holding any office under the United States.” – 18 USC 2071


Habeas Corpus is a judicial process, not open for debate. If the prisoner were not released, the party that continued to restrain the prisoner would become guilty of false imprisonment and kidnaping. The arrest of said perpetrators would be the appropriate action by the Sheriff; and, the said perpetrators would need to be brought before the Grand Jury for indictment.

COURT FILING: If a clerk were to refuse to file any legal document, the clerk would be committing a crime.

“Whoever, being a clerk of a District Court of the United States, willfully refuses or neglects to make or forward any report, certificate, statement or document as required by law, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than one (1) year, or both.

– 18 USC §2076

 

If a clerk, judge or anyone were to conceal, remove or mutilate any document filed within the Court that person would be committing a crime; and, the Sheriff would be duty-bound to arrest him.

CONCEALMENT – REMOVAL – MUTILATION GENERALLY:

  • “Whoever willfully and unlawfully conceals, removes, mutilates, obliterates or destroys; or, attempts to do so; or, with intent to do so, takes and carries away any record, proceeding, map, book, paper, document or other thing; filed or “deposited” with any clerk or officer of any court of the United States; or, in any public office; or, with any judicial or public officer of the United States; shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than three (3) years, or ”
  • “Whoever, having the custody of any such record, proceeding, map, book, document, paper or other thing; willfully and unlawfully conceals, removes, mutilates, obliterates, falsifies or destroys the same; shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than three (3) years, or both; and, shall forfeit his office; and, be disqualified from holding any office under the United States. As used in this subsection, the term ‘office’ does not include the office held by any person as a retired officer of the Armed Forces of the United States.– 18 USC 2071

RIGHT TO COUNCIL BY NON-BAR MEMBERS: Often, in criminal courts, when people desire to speak for themselves; or, have “assistance of counsel” that are not BAR members; judges reject and resist any move in that direction. Judges continue to force BAR lawyers that are taught in their BAR schools to never bring Common Law into the courts. If they were to do so, the BAR judge and/or the BAR prosecutor would report them; and, they would lose their BAR license; and, be barred from the court. If the victim were to continue to resist, the judge might incarcerate the victim for “contempt”; or, order a “Competency Test”; and, then, the judge might force a BAR attorney on the victim; were the Sheriff and his deputies to fail to realize that the judge was violating the unalienable right of the victim, which right is protected by   the

6th Amendment; and, if the Sheriff were then to do nothing; the Sheriff would be complicit to

conspiracy – a crime.

 

“Right to have the Assistance of Counsel…” – Bill of Rights Amendment VI


“The practice of law cannot be licensed by any state.” – Schware v. Board of Examiners, United State Reports 353 U.S. pages 238, 239

“The practice of law is an occupation of common right.” – Sims v. Aherns, 271 SW 720 (1925)

“Litigants can be assisted by unlicensed laymen during judicial proceedings.” – Brotherhood of Trainmen v. Virginia ex rel. Virginia State Bar, 377; U.S. v. Wainwright, 372 U.S. 335; Argersinger v. Sheriff Hamlin 407 U.S. 425

AMERICA RUNS ON FICTION OF LAW: All attorneys and judges are BAR taught. Courts today operate under the rules of chancery; not the rules of Common Law. Our founding fathers rejected chancery; did not include it in the Constitution; it is in direct conflict with Common Law.

“The judicial power shall extend to all cases, in law and equity, arising under this Constitution.– U.S. Constitution Article III Section 2

Therefore most of our courts are running on fiction; not on law.

 

FICTION OF LAW: Something known to be false is assumed to be true.” – Ryan v.

Motor Credit Co., 130 N.J. Eq. 531, 23 A.2d 607, 621

 

“…that statutes which would deprive a citizen of the rights of person or property without a regular trial according to the course and usage of common law, would not be the law of the land.” – Hoke v. Henderson, 15, N.C.15, 25 AM Dec 677

Our elected servants are out of control. America is operating under fiction of law. It is the duty of the Sheriff, working with the People if necessary, to protect the unalienable rights of the People by simply enforcing the laws as enumerated herein. Only then will America run on the Law again.

“If a nation expects to be ignorant and free in a state of civilization, it expects what never was and never will be.” – Thomas Jefferson

The Sheriff took an oath to uphold and defend the Constitution; but, to fulfill his oath; to uphold and defend the Constitution; the Sheriff must know the Constitution. The Sheriff needs to learn the Common Law; and, he needs to teach the Common Law to his deputies. Any Sheriff that would fail to do so, would be required to resign his position.

ONLY THE PEOPLE CAN SAVE AMERICA: AND, it is the Sheriff’s duty to lawfully protect and serve the People. Were the People to rise up together; were the People to stand against tyrants in our government; only then would the People be able to return to our former state under Common Law. Were the People to accomplish that noble feat, the whole mass of the People would first need to become well informed and well educated in the Law; for, the People have already, nearly lost America to fascism.

 

“Educate and inform the whole mass of the people… They are the only sure reliance for the preservation of our liberty.” – Thomas Jefferson

“I know no safe depositary of the ultimate powers of the society but the people themselves; and, if we think them not enlightened enough to exercise their control with  a wholesome discretion, the remedy is not to take it from them; but, to inform their discretion by education. This is the true corrective of abuses of constitutional power.”

Thomas Jefferson

 

“An enlightened citizenry is indispensable for the proper functioning of a republic. Self- government is not possible unless the citizens are educated sufficiently to enable them  to exercise oversight. It is therefore imperative that the nation see to it that a suitable education be provided for all its citizens.” – Thomas Jefferson

THE DUTY OF THE SHERIFF IN THE JAIL: The sheriff is responsible for the lawful implementation of the county correctional facility; and is, therefore, liable for any unlawful detention. Simply stated, an unlawful detention would be anyone held without a presentment or indictment by a grand jury; unless he were detained for a violent act; being held for indictment of a grand jury; and,

then, brought before a court of law to answer; this is the unalienable right of the Peoples; a right protected by the 5th Amendment.

“Law, in its regular course of administration through courts of justice, is due process.”

– Leeper v. Texas, 139, U.S. 462, II SUP CT. 577, 35 L ED 225

 

“By the Law of the Land is more clearly intended the general law; a law which hears before it condemns; which proceeds upon inquiry and renders judgment only after trial.” – Dartmouth College Case, 4Wheat, U.S. 518, 4 ED 629

“No person shall be held to answer for a … crime, unless on a presentment or indictment of a Grand Jury… nor be deprived of life, liberty or property without ‘Due Process of Law’.” – Bill of Rights Amendment V

 

‘DUE COURSE OF LAW’: “this phrase is synonymous with ‘Due Process of Law’ or ‘Law of the Land’; and, means law in its regular course of administration through Courts of Justice.” – Kansas Pac. Ry. Co. v. Dunmeyer 19 KAN 542

All Federal and State Courts are to be Courts of Record. When declared by a State Constitution to be a Court of Record, a County Court, as well, would be a Court of Record; and, proceed according to the Common Law. All city, town and village courts are NOT courts of record; they proceed according to

statutes; not the Constitution; therefore, they violate due process; and, thus they have NO power to fine or incarcerate. There are a few exceptions: Whereas New York City courts, under the New York State Constitution, are Courts of Record; they, therefore, are to proceed according to the Common Law.

 

COURTS OF RECORD AND COURTS NOT OF RECORD: “The former, being those whose acts and judicial proceedings are enrolled or recorded for a perpetual memory and testimony; and, which have power to fine or imprison for contempt; Error lies to their judgments; and, they generally possess a seal. Courts NOT of record are those of

inferior dignity; which have NO power to fine or imprison; and, in which the proceedings are not enrolled or recorded.” – 3 Bl. Comm. 24; 3 Steph. Comm. 383; The Thomas Fletcher, C.C.Ga., 24 F. 481; Ex parte Thistleton, 52 Cal 225; Erwin v. U.S., D.C.Ga., 37 F. 488, 2 L.R.A. 229; Heininger v. Davis, 96 Ohio St. 205, 117

N.E. 229, 231

 

“The decisions of a Superior Court may only be challenged in a Court of Appeal. The decisions of an Inferior Court are subject to collateral attack. In other words, in a Superior Court, one may sue an Inferior Court directly, rather than resort to Appeal to an Appellate Court. A Decision of a Court of Record may not be appealed. It is  binding

on ALL other courts. However, no Statutory or Constitutional Court – whether it be an Appellate or a Supreme Court – can second guess the Judgment of a Court of Record … The judgment of a Court of Record, whose jurisdiction is final, is as conclusive on all the world as the Judgment of this court would be. It is as conclusive on this court as it is on other courts. It puts an end to inquiry concerning the fact, by deciding it.” Schneckloth v. Bustamonte, 412 U.S. 218, 255 (1973)

It is imperative that the Sheriff know the difference between a Court of record and a Court not of Record because a Court not of Record CANNOT incarcerate; THEREFORE, were a Sheriff to incarcerate someone held or tried in a Court not of Record, that Sheriff would be participating in the

violation the unalienable right of that person to the due process of law protected by the 4th  and 5th

Amendments – a crime.

 

“The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers and effects  against unreasonable searches and seizures shall NOT be violated; and, NO Warrants shall issue but upon probable cause supported by Oath or Affirmation; and,  particularly describing the place to be searched; and, the persons or things to be seized.

– Bill of Rights Amendment IV

 

“No person shall be held to answer for a capital or otherwise infamous crime unless on a presentment or indictment of a Grand Jury.– Bill of Rights Amendment V

We realize this is a major problem, considering that county jails are filled with people tried in Courts NOT of Record. Some of these people may be guilty of a crime; which is something We the People will have to ascertain; and, We the People, through grand juries and trial juries, WILL endeavor to solve this HUGE  problem as soon as we are able to access the courts. Nevertheless, the Sheriff

CANNOT continue to receive prisoners who were tried in Courts NOT of Record. Were the Sheriff to hold the belief that one of the accused was in fact guilty of a crime, he would need to bring the issue to

 

a Grand Jury for indictment; and, then, to be tried in a Court of Record. The U.S. Supreme Court rulings, which we now offer to more thoroughly education the Sheriff, were based on Common Law; and, thereby authenticate and substantiate this most important point.

RIGHT TO TRAVEL: “The right of the citizen to travel upon the public highways; and,  to transport his property thereon; either by carriage or by automobile; is not a mere privilege which a city may prohibit or permit at will; but, [is] a common right which he has under the right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.– Thompson v. Smith, 154 SE 579

“Undoubtedly the right of locomotion; the right to remove from one place to another according to inclination; is an attribute of personal liberty; and, the right, ordinarily, of free transit from or through the territory of any State is a right secured by the l4th Amendment; and, by other provisions of the Constitution.” – Schactman v. Dulles,   96

App D.C. 287, 293

 

“The claim and exercise of a constitutional right CANNOT be converted into a  crime.”

– Miller v. U.S. 230 F 486 at 489

“We find it intolerable that one constitutional right should have to be surrendered in order to assert another.” – Simmons v. U.S. 390, U.S. 389 (1968)

 

“Where rights secured by the Constitution are involved, there can be NO rule-making  or legislation which would abrogate them.” – Miranda v. Arizona, 384 U.S. 436, 491

RIGHT TO KEEP AND BEAR ARMS: “The right of the people to keep and bear Arms shall not be infringed. – Bill of Rights Amendment II

“The general rule is that an unconstitutional statute, though having the form and name of law, is in reality no law; but, is wholly void and ineffective for any purpose, since its unconstitutionality dates from the time of its enactment… In legal contemplation, it is as inoperative as if it had never been passed… Since an unconstitutional law is void, the

general principles follow that it imposes NO duties, confers NO right, creates NO office, bestows NO power or authority on anyone, affords NO protection and justifies NO acts performed under it… A void act cannot be legally consistent with a valid one. An

unconstitutional law cannot operate to supersede any existing law. Indeed insofar as   a

statute runs counter to the fundamental law of the land, (the Constitution) it is superseded thereby. No one is bound to obey an unconstitutional law; and, NO courts are bound to enforce it.” – Bonnett v. Vallier, 116 N.W. 885, 136 Wis. 193 (1908);

Norton v. Shelby County, 118 U.S. 425 (1886)


“…every man is independent of all laws except those prescribed by nature. He is NOT bound by any institutions formed by his fellowman without his consent.” – Cruden v. Neale, 2 N.C. 338 (1796) 2 S.E.

“Under our system of government, upon the individuality and intelligence of the citizen, the state does NOT claim to control him/her except as his/her conduct to others; leaving him/her the sole judge as to all that affects himself/herself.” – Mugler v. Kansas 123 U.S. 623, 659-60

“Statutes that violate the plain and obvious principles of common right and common reason are null and void.” – Bennett v. Boggs, 1 Baldw 60

“The State CANNOT diminish rights of the people.” – Hertado v. California, 110 U.S. 516

 

“There can be NO sanction or penalty imposed upon one because of his exercise of Constitutional Rights.” – Sherar v. Cullen, 481 F. 2d 946 (1973)

those things which are considered as inalienable rights, which all citizens possess, cannot be licensed since those acts are NOT held to be a privilege.” – City of Chicago v. Collins, 51 N.E. 907, 910

“Constitutional ‘rights’ would be of little value if they could be indirectly denied.” – Gomillion v. Lightfoot, 364 U.S. 155 (1966), cited also in Smith v. Allwright, 321 U.S. 649.644

“We find it intolerable that one constitutional right should have to be surrendered in order to assert another.” – Simmons v. U.S. 390, U.S. 389 (1968)

“If the state converts a liberty into a privilege, the citizen can engage in the right with impunity.” – Shuttlesworth v. Birmingham, 373 USs 262

 

“Sovereignty itself is, of course, NOT subject to law, for it is the author and source of law; but, in our system, while sovereign powers are delegated to the agencies of government, sovereignty itself remains with the people by whom and for whom all government exists and acts; and, the law is the definition and limitation of power …


For, the very idea that man may be compelled to hold his life, or the means of living, or any material right essential to the enjoyment of life, at the mere will of another, seems  to be intolerable in any country where freedom prevails; as being the essence of slavery itself.” – Yick Wo v. Hopkins, 118 US 356, 370

THE DUTY OF THE SHERIFF IN THE COUNTY: The Sheriff, being Chief Executive and Administrative Officer; the Chief Law Enforcement Officer (CLEO) and Highest Peace Officer of the entire County in which he was elected, has the absolute authority to arrest even the Governor or a Judge; and, then to call the Grand Jury directly for an Indictment; a Sheriff need not get permission from the District Attorney.

The Sheriff also has the authority and duty to secure liberty and peace within his county; and, if necessary, call the Posse Comitatus to assist. The challenge of the Sheriff today is from forces within our federal government that are unlawfully moving toward Martial Law in an effort to disarm the American People; the only motive of Martial Law is control of a captured population. We the   People

have NOT given authority to the three (3) branches of Government to declare Martial Law; for, to have done so, would be self-destruction. Any attempt by Congress or the Executive to use military forces, foreign or domestic, against the People to bring them under Martial Law is an act of treason; war against the People; and, We the People will be dependent upon the Sheriff within each county to secure the peace by any means necessary; seeing that congress has been negligent in providing for the Militia.

Therefore, in times of emergency, the “only” Constitutional Authority to keep the peace during an invasion is the Posse Comitatus.

Whereas: the Sheriff is to call upon We the People of the county to secure the peace. Federal Agents and Foreign Troops on State Soil would be repugnant to our Constitution; an act of “war”. – II Amendment

POSSE COMITATUS: “The power or force of the county; the entire population of a county above the age of fifteen (15); which a Sheriff may summon to his assistance in certain cases; as to aid him in keeping the peace, in pursuing and arresting felons, etc.”

“A well-regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a Free State, shall not be infringed.” – The Bill of Rights Amendment II

“To provide for organizing, arming and disciplining the militia; and, for governing  such part of them as may be employed in the service of the United States; reserving to the states respectively the appointment of the officers and the authority of training the militia according to the discipline prescribed by Congress.” – U.S. Constitution Section 8 paragraph 16


UNITED STATES MARSHAL: The power, authority and duty of a U.S. Marshal is similar to that of the County Sheriff in that he is a constitutional officer having the power and authority to arrest any judge who might violate the unalienable rights of the People. One (1) Marshal is appointed by the President for each of the ninety-four (94) Federal Districts. The powers of the Marshal are defined, by constitutional authority, under the Judiciary act of 1789. The Marshal serves for a term of four (4) years; takes an oath of office; has the power to appoint deputies; and, shall produce a bond.

The duties of the U.S. Marshal, similar to those of the Sheriff, are to attend the District and Circuit Courts; execute throughout the District those lawful precepts directed to him; deliver Writs; Summon jurors; secure an impartial Trial; execute Warrants; and fulfill the responsibility of retaining, delivering and transporting prisoners in his custody as directed by the Courts.

Once a Marshal is appointed, he can be removed from office only by the People in Grand Jury by an Indictment for bad behavior.

“The power of appointing the person nominated, are [is a] political power[s], to be exercised by the President according to his own discretion. When he has made an appointment, he has exercised his whole power; and, his discretion has been completely applied to the case… the appointment cannot be annihilated; and, consequently, if the officer is by law not removable at the will of the President, the rights he has acquired are protected by the law...Marbury v. Madison 5 U.S. 137 (1803); 5 U.S. 137 (Cranch) 1803

 

Marshals take an oath of office swearing to faithfully execute all “lawful precepts”; thereby remaining in “good behavior”, the Marshal is required to execute all the “lawful orders” of the Court. Marshals are Constitutional Judicial Officers; and, therefore, like the Sheriff, are required to execute the “Law of the Land1 and protect the “Due Process” of the People;2 were the Marshal to fail to do all that is required of him; without acting outside of those powers to which the People consent, he would put

himself in bad behavior; and, would then be subject to removal from office by the People by  Indictment from the Grand Jury.

When Federal SWAT Teams knock down doors in the middle of the night; terrify families; kill people; execute a violence so grave as to sometimes result even in the death of children and pets; all in the name of enforcing a Federal Lien; or; in retaliation of liberty group members whose noble interest is to restore the Constitution for the United States of America; but, in doing so pose a serious, even extinguishing threat to those Federal agencies and/or their agents that would violate the Law of the Land; it is the duty of the Marshal to prevent tyrannical abuse of power. Were the Marshal to allow this abuse he would be guilty of “felony rescue”; and, the Sheriff then would become dutybound to  arrest

 

 

1 U.S. Constitution Article VI. This Constitution and the laws of the United States which shall be made in pursuance thereof and all treaties made or which shall be made under the authority of the United States shall be the supreme law of the land; and, the judges in every state shall be bound thereby, anything in the Constitution or laws of any State to the contrary notwithstanding.

2 Law of the Land”, “Due Course of Law” and “Due Process of Law” are synonymous. People v. Skinner, Cal., 110 P.2d 41, 45; State v. Rossi, 71 R.I. 284, 43 A.2d 323, 326; Direct Plumbing Supply Co. v. City of Dayton, 138 Ohio St. 540, 38 N.E.2d 70, 72, 137 A.L.R. 1058; Stoner v. Higginson, 316

Pa. 481, 175 A. 527, 531.

 

all parties complicit in the event. The Common Law Grand Jury is on highalert concerning such  abuse; and, will be seeking indictments across the nation.

The Marshal, like the Sheriff, is the guardian of the Constitution, thereby duty bound to protect the due process of anyone standing before the court; as much as duty bound to execute all the lawful orders of the Court. Due process requires a presentment or indictment of an impartial Grand Jury for all criminal cases.

“No person shall be held to answer for a capital or otherwise infamous crime unless on a presentment or indictment of a Grand Jury except in cases arising in the land or naval forces or in the Militia when in actual service in time of War or public danger; nor, shall any person be subject for the same offense to be twice put in jeopardy of life or limb; nor, shall be compelled in any criminal case to be a witness against himself; nor, be deprived of life, liberty or property without due process of law; nor, shall private property be taken for public use without just compensation. – Amendment V

From the Bill of Rights and its Amendments, it is abundantly clear that the right to trial by a jury of one’s peers includes the fact that the jury would decide whether the Law upon which a People is brought to trial is itself a just Law and/or whether said Law should be applied in the case at hand; any interference with the prerogative of the jury in this most important aspect of due process would constitute “tampering with the jury”; and, would thereby constitute “denial of due process”. Were a judge or a prosecutor to address a jury in such manner as to persuade in the Law, the jury would no longer stand impartial; that judge and/or that prosecutor would be guilty of jury tampering – a crime.

“The constitutions of most of our states assert that all power is inherent in the people; that they may exercise it by themselves in all cases to which they think themselves competent; (as in electing their functionaries, executive and legislative; and, deciding, by a jury of themselves, both fact and law in all judiciary cases in which any fact is involved) or, they [the People] may ask [that the power of the People be exercised] by representatives, freely and equally chosen; that it is their right and duty to be, at all times, armed; [that the People have the right] to freedom of person; freedom of religion; freedom of property; and, freedom of the press.” – Thomas Jefferson, letter to John Cartwright; June 5, 1824

NULLIFICATION OF LAW: A series of resolutions prepared by Jefferson and adopted by the legislature of Kentucky in 1799; protested against the “Alien and Sedition Acts”, declared the laws within those Acts illegal; announced the strict constructionist theory of the Federal government; and, declared “nullification” to be “the rightful remedy”. – Kentucky Resolutions

 

THE LAWFUL PATH: The Sheriff is the last line of defense for the People. American Sheriffs must educate themselves with respect to all the duties enumerated in this course; all those duties enumerated in the Law of the Land; Sheriffs must work with People who are awakening all across America; Sheriffs must receive and ask for Indictments; they must enforce the Law; and, execute arrests. Only then can We save America from the tyrants that would destroy our American way of life; that would

 

replace our just, honorable and merciful Common Law, natural law, God’s law with despotic, tyrannical, abusive fiction. Whenever the Sheriff encounters dilemma or feels unsure with respect to the understanding or enforcement of his duties, We the People stand ready; the Sheriff can call upon the Jury Administrators who are yearning, laboring and praying to soon be seated in the Courts; and, until that glorious, victorious and liberating day, the Sheriff is invited to fax any and all concerns to the Unified United States Common Law Grand Jury at (888) 891-8977; We the People will always endeavor to answer concerns with the necessary and appropriate Constitutional Common  Law that  will empower both the Sheriff and the People; additionally, the Sheriff may, at any time deemed necessary or prudent, call together twenty five (25) people in his own county to serve as a Grand Jury; should the Sheriff feel adequate to the orientation of the Jury he may certainly accomplish that; should the Sheriff desire assistance, We the People stand ready to provide either the orientation itself or sufficient materials to help the Sheriff accomplish a successful orientation of the jurors. The fate of America literally rests upon the oath of the Sheriff; upon the fulfillment of that oath; and thereby upon the Sheriff doing the just thing, the honorable thing and the merciful thing.

 

 

THE SURETIES OF THE PEACE

In a stunning 6 to 3 decision, Justice Antonin Scalia, writing for the majority in the 1992 case United

States v. Williams, confirmed that:

 

“the American grand jury is neither part of the Judicial, Executive nor Legislative branch of government; but, instead belongs to the People; it is, in effect, a fourth  branch  of  government  ‘governed’  and  administered     to

directly by, and on behalf of, the American People; and, its authority emanates from the Bill of Rights.”

Justice Antonin Scalia, drawing from history and many Supreme Court rulings, went on to say:

 

“The grand jury is mentioned in the Bill of Rights but not in the body of the Constitution. It has not been textually assigned, therefore, to any of the branches described in the first three Articles. It is a constitutional fixture in its own right. In fact, the whole theory of its function is that it belongs to no branch of the institutional government, serving as a kind of buffer or referee between the Government and the people. The common law of the Fifth Amendment demands a traditional, functioning grand jury… It is in effect a fourth branch of government governed and administered to directly by, and on behalf of, the American people; and, its authority emanates from the Bill of Rights. The grand jury requires no authorization from its constituting court to initiate an investigation; and, in its day-to-day functioning, the grand jury generally operates without the interference of a presiding judge; and, deliberates in total secrecy. We have insisted that the grand jury remain ‘free to pursue its investigations  unhindered by external influence or supervision so long as it does not trench upon the


legitimate rights of any witness called before it.’ Recognizing this tradition of independence, we have said that the Fifth Amendment’s ‘constitutional guarantee presupposes an investigative body acting independently of either prosecuting attorney  or judge’.– United States v. Williams

The first grand jury of twenty-five (25) free men summoned itself and wrote the following:

 

“If any of our civil servants shall have transgressed against any of the people in any respect; and, they shall ask us to cause that error to be amended without delay; or, shall have broken some one of the articles of peace or security; and, their transgression shall have been shown to four ( 4) Jurors of the aforesaid twenty five (25); and, if those four

(4) Jurors are unable to settle the transgression they shall come to the twenty-five (25), showing to the Grand Jury the error which shall be enforced by the law of the land.” – Magna Charta, June 15, AD. 1215

 

 

 

And, it is under our own authority as sovereign People and therefore co-authors of the Magna Charta, connected in spirit and in fact, to remind our tyrannical servants that We the People, being the sureties of   the  peace,   authored   the  Declaration   of   Independence,   the  U.S. Constitution and the Bill of Rights that these tyrants hold in contempt; and, we intend to bring to remembrance the Preamble to the Declaration  of Independence that when government becomes destructive, We the People act correctively, whereas we read:

“That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter it… laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.” – Preamble

 

The governments of the United States belong to We the People, not these tyrants that fleece us daily  in our own courts over which they have seized control. Therefore, We the People have reconstituted the Common Law Grand Juries in all 3,134 Counties of the United States. We have organized all  Fifty

(50) States of our Union; and, have taken extraordinary steps to unify every State; and, We the People, presently many thousands strong in every State, have come together as the Unified United States Common Law Grand Jury to liberate America from the tyrants that have seized control of the reigns of our government; and, to bring them to justice.

Once we restore Justice in our courts, thereby restoring our union through law enforcement, the blessings of liberty will be secured once again. Meanwhile, we are educating the People through this Constitutional Course and our Civics Course as we form administrations composed of four (4) of the People in each County of the United States in order to provide for the orientation of juries, bring civics and constitutional studies back into our schools, perform as a conduit between the People and sitting Grand Juries; and, to act as the investigative body of the Grand Juries.

“I consider trial by jury as the only anchor yet devised by man, by which a government can be held to the principles of its constitution.” – Thomas Jefferson

AUTHORITY

John F. Kennedy 26th  President of the United States from 1961-1963 The President and the  Press

Before the American Newspaper Publishers’ Association in New York City on April 27, 1961.

 

Mr. Chairman, ladies and gentlemen:

 

I appreciate very much your generous invitation to be here tonight.

 

You bear heavy responsibilities these days; and, an article I read some time ago reminded me of how particularly heavily the burdens of present day events bear upon your profession.

 

You may remember that in 1851, the New York Herald Tribune, under the sponsorship and publishing of Horace Greeley, employed, as its London correspondent, an obscure journalist by the name of Karl Marx.

 

We are told that foreign correspondent Marx, stone broke; and, with a family ill and undernourished; constantly appealed to Greeley and Managing Editor Charles Dana for an increase in his munificent salary of $5.00 per installment; a salary which he and Engels ungratefully labeled as the “lousiest petty Bourgeois cheating”.

 

But, when all his financial appeals were refused, Marx looked around for other means of livelihood  and fame, eventually terminating his relationship with the Tribune and devoting his talents full time to the cause that would bequeath to the world the seeds of Leninism, Stalinism, revolution and the cold war.

 

If only this capitalistic New York newspaper had treated him more kindly; if only Marx had remained a foreign correspondent; history might have been different. And, I hope all publishers will bear this

 

lesson in mind the next time they receive a poverty-stricken appeal for a small increase in the expense account from an obscure newspaper.

 

I have selected as the title of my remarks tonight “The President and the Press”. Some may suggest  that this would be more naturally worded “The President Versus the Press”. But, those are not my sentiments tonight.

 

It is true, however, that when a well-known diplomat from another country demanded recently that our State Department repudiate certain newspaper attacks on his colleague, it was unnecessary for us to reply that this Administration was not responsible for the press, for the press had already made it clear that it was not responsible for this Administration.

 

Nevertheless, my purpose here tonight is not to deliver the usual assault on the so-called one-party press. On the contrary, in recent months I have rarely heard any complaints about political bias in the press except from a few Republicans. Nor is it my purpose tonight to discuss or defend the televising  of Presidential press conferences. I think it is highly beneficial to have some 20,000,000 Americans regularly sit in on these conferences to observe, if I may say so, the incisive, the intelligent and the courteous qualities displayed by your Washington correspondents.

 

Nor, finally, are these remarks intended to examine the proper degree of privacy which the press  should allow to any President and his family.

 

If in the last few months your White House reporters and photographers have been attending church services with regularity, that has surely done them no harm.

 

On the other hand, I realize that your staff and wire service photographers may be complaining that they do not enjoy the same green privileges at the local golf courses which they once did.

 

It is true that my predecessor did not object as I do to pictures of one’s golfing skill in action. But, neither, on the other hand, had he ever been a Secret Service man. My topic tonight is a more sober  one of concern to publishers as well as editors.

 

I want to talk about our common responsibilities in the face of a common danger. The events of recent weeks may have helped to illuminate that challenge for some: [Bay of Pigs – was a military attack on Cuba, without Administrative knowledge, until a request by CIA operative George Bush to the President for military air support, which JFK refused] but, the dimensions of its threat have loomed large on the horizon for many years. Whatever our hopes may be for the future for reducing this threat; or, for living with it there is no escaping either the gravity or the totality of its challenge to our survival; and, to our security – a challenge that confronts us in unaccustomed ways in every sphere of human activity.

 

This deadly challenge imposes upon our society two requirements of direct concern, both to the press and to the President two requirements that may seem almost contradictory in tone; but, which must be reconciled and fulfilled if we are to meet this national peril. I refer, first, to the need for far greater public information; and, second, to the need for far greater official secrecy.

 

The very word “secrecy” is repugnant in a free and open society; and, we are as a people inherently and historically opposed to secret societies, to secret oaths and to secret proceedings. We   decided

 

long ago that the dangers of excessive and unwarranted concealment of pertinent facts far outweighed the dangers which are cited to justify it. Even today, there is little value in opposing the threat of a closed society by imitating its arbitrary restrictions. Even today, there is little value in ensuring the survival of our nation if our traditions do not survive with it. And, there is very grave danger  that an announced need for increased security will be seized upon by those anxious to expand its meaning to the very limits of official censorship and concealment. That, I do not intend to permit to the extent that it is in my control. And, no official of my Administration, whether his rank is high or low, civilian or military, should interpret my words here tonight as an excuse to censor the news, to stifle dissent, to cover up our mistakes or to withhold from the press and the public the facts they deserve to know.

 

But, I do ask every publisher, every editor and every newsman in the nation to reexamine his  own standards; and, to recognize the nature of our country’s peril. In time of war, the government and the press have customarily joined in an effort, based largely on self-discipline, to prevent unauthorized disclosures to the enemy. In time of “clear and present danger”, the courts have held that even the privileged rights of the First Amendment must yield to the public’s need for national security.

 

Today no war has been declared; and, however fierce the struggle may be, it may never be declared in the traditional fashion. Our way of life is under attack. Those who make themselves our enemy are advancing around the globe. The survival of our friends is in danger. And, yet, no war has been declared, no borders have been crossed by marching troops, no missiles have been fired.

 

If the press is awaiting a declaration of war before it imposes the self-discipline of combat conditions, then I can only say that no war ever posed a greater threat to our security. If you are awaiting a finding of “clear and present danger”, then I can only say that the danger has never been more clear; and, its presence has never been more imminent.

 

It requires a change in outlook, a change in tactics, a change in missions; by the government, by the people, by every businessman or labor leader and by every newspaper. For we are opposed around the world by a monolithic and ruthless conspiracy that relies primarily on covert means for expanding its sphere of influence; on infiltration instead of invasion; on subversion instead of elections; on intimidation instead of free choice; on guerrillas by night instead of armies by day. It is a system which has conscripted vast human and material resources into the building of a tightly knit, highly efficient machine that combines military, diplomatic, intelligence, economic,  scientific and political operations.

 

Its preparations are concealed, not published; its mistakes are buried, not headlined; its dissenters are silenced, not praised. No expenditure is questioned; no rumor is printed; no secret is revealed. It conducts the Cold War, in short, with a war-time discipline no democracy would ever hope or wish to match.

 

Nevertheless, every democracy recognizes the necessary restraints of national security; and, the question remains whether those restraints need to be more strictly observed if we are to oppose this kind of attack as well as outright invasion.

 

For the facts of the matter are that this nation’s foes have openly boasted of acquiring, through our newspapers, information they would otherwise hire agents to acquire through theft, bribery or espionage; that details of this nation’s covert preparations to counter the enemy’s covert operations

 

have been available to every newspaper reader, friend and foe alike; that the size, the strength, the location and the nature of our forces and weapons; and, our plans and strategy for their use, have all been pinpointed in the press and other news media to a degree sufficient to satisfy any foreign power; and, that, in at least one case, the publication of details concerning a secret mechanism whereby satellites were followed required its alteration at the expense of considerable time and money.

 

The newspapers which printed these stories were loyal, patriotic, responsible and well-meaning. Had we been engaged in open warfare, they undoubtedly would not have published such items. But, in the absence of open warfare, they recognized only the tests of journalism and not the tests of national security. And, my question tonight is whether additional tests should not now be adopted.

 

That question is for you alone to answer. No public official should answer it for you. No governmental plan should impose its restraints against your will. But, I would be failing in my duty to the Nation, in considering all of the responsibilities that we now bear; and, all of the means at hand to meet those responsibilities; if I did not commend this problem to your attention; and, urge its thoughtful consideration.

 

On many earlier occasions, I have said; and, your newspapers have constantly said; that these are times that appeal to every citizen’s sense of sacrifice and self-discipline. They call out to every citizen to weigh his rights and comforts against his obligations to the common good. I cannot now believe that those citizens who serve in the newspaper business consider themselves exempt from that appeal.

 

I have no intention of establishing a new Office of War Information to govern the flow of news. I am not suggesting any new forms of censorship or new types of security classifications. I have no easy answer to the dilemma that I have posed; and, would not seek to impose it if I had one. But, I am  asking the members of the newspaper profession; and, the industry in this country; to reexamine their own responsibilities; to consider the degree and the nature of the present danger; and, to heed the duty of self-restraint which that danger imposes upon us all.

 

Every newspaper now asks itself, with respect to every story: “Is it news?” All I suggest is that you add the question: “Is it in the interest of the national security?” And, I hope that every group in America unions and businessmen and public officials at every level will ask the same question of their endeavors; and, subject their actions to this same exacting test.

 

And, should the press of America consider and recommend the voluntary assumption of specific new steps or machinery, I can assure you that we will cooperate whole-heartedly with those recommendations.

 

Perhaps there will be no recommendations. Perhaps there is no answer to the dilemma faced by a free and open society in a cold and secret war. In times of peace, any discussion of this subject, and any action that results, are both painful and without precedent. But, this is a time of peace and peril which knows no precedent in history.

 

It is the unprecedented nature of this challenge that also gives rise to your second obligation an obligation which I share. And, that is our obligation to inform and alert the American people; to make certain that they possess all the facts that they need; and, understand them as well – the perils, the prospects, the purposes of our program; and, the choices that we face.

 

No President should fear public scrutiny of his program. For, from that scrutiny, comes understanding; and, from that understanding, comes support or opposition. And, both are necessary. I am not asking your newspapers to support the Administration; but, I am asking your help in the tremendous task  of informing and alerting the American people. For I have complete confidence in the response and dedication of our citizens whenever they are fully informed.

 

I not only could not stifle controversy among your readers I welcome it. This Administration intends to be candid about its errors; for, as a wise man once said: “An error doesn’t become a mistake until you refuse to correct it.” We intend to accept full responsibility for our errors; and, we expect you to point them out when we miss them.

 

Without debate, without criticism, no Administration and no country can succeed; and, no republic can survive. That is why the Athenian law-maker Solon decreed it a crime for any citizen to shrink from controversy. And, that is why our press was protected by the First Amendment – the only business in America specifically protected by the Constitution – not primarily to amuse and entertain, not to emphasize the trivial and the sentimental, not to simply “give the public what it wants”; but, to inform, to arouse, to reflect, to state our dangers and our opportunities, to indicate our crises and our choices, to lead, mold, educate; and, sometimes, even anger public opinion.

 

This means greater coverage and analysis of international news for it is no longer far away and foreign; but, close at hand and local. It means greater attention to improved understanding of the news, as well as improved transmission. And, it means, finally, that government at all levels, must meet its obligation to provide you with the fullest possible information outside the narrowest limits of national security; and, we intend to do that.

 

It was early in the Seventeenth Century that Francis Bacon remarked on three (3) recent inventions already transforming the world: the compass, gunpowder and the printing    press.

Now the links between the Nations first forged by the compass have made us all citizens of the World; the hopes and threats of one becoming the hopes and threats of us all. In that one World’s efforts to live together, the evolution of gunpowder to its ultimate limit has warned mankind of the terrible consequences of failure.

 

And,   so,   it   is   to   the   printing   press   –   to   the   recorder   of   man’s   deeds,   the     keeper   of   his   conscience,   the   courier   of   his   news   –   that   we   look   for   strength    and assistance, confident that with your help, man will be what he was born to be – free and independent.

AUTHORITY

RETURN TO SELF-GOVERNANCE

WE HAVE LOST OUR WAY – We have forgotten our place in history; that beacon upon the top of a mountain as an ensign on a hill. Our strength has become our shame because we put our trust in the shadow  of  cunning,  ambitious  and  unprincipled  men  who   have

trodden down the Law and shackled us with statutes of men. We have become a land of trouble and anguish; deaf to the Law of the Land; a place of oppression and perverseness; we have become the potters’ broken vessel. [Isaiah 30]

How did America succumb to such a state of being? Unknown forces covertly altered our course without our consent by seizing the reigns of our government. Questions that beg asking are:

  • Why is our education void of classes on “Civics”; void of classes on “The Constitution”; void of classes on “Common Law”?
  • Why have we been told that we need lawyers to interpret the very subjects that define who we are as a People and our control of our own destiny?
  • Why have we been told that America was “not” founded on Common Law?
  • Why have we been told that People who claim that they are “Sovereign” or demand their “Constitutional Rights” are “Terrorists”?
  • And, the most disturbing question: Why do we believe them?
  • How could we have been so blind to all these things when our Founding Documents have been right there for us to see all along; and, why have we been so late in looking!
  • Just exactly who is it that has been whispering these things into our ears? Has it been the Lawyers? The Politicians? The Political parties? Those who Disdain liberty? The Press? The Schools? Entertainment? Or, could it have been “all” of the above?

 

The answer to the question of “who” is the nefarious “Powers that Be”; Discover the struggle of America against this hidden power in our Free Civics Course right here at www.NationalLibertyAlliance.org. If you have not already taken the course, please add it to your curriculum now; it is critical to understanding and recognizing the “Enemy of Liberty”.

LIBERTY RISING Only the People, working together with our Sheriffs and Marshals, can save America; and, they can do so simply by enforcing the law and re-establishing Justice in our courts.  This we can accomplish only with informed Common Law Juries and informed Constitutional  Officers.

NATIONAL LIBERTY ALLIANCE IS A FACILITATOR of education, organization, communication and principles with the sole objective of empowering People in the re-founding of America; and,  instructing those who respond in how to do so. We are thousands of People poised in every State  across America, approaching the intersection of terminal velocity and critical mass which we trust will be met in 2016 by the juncture of the will of God with that of his People.

 

OUR PLAN, founded in the Magna C[h]arta, Paragraph 61; and, being propelled into fruition, is to build Civil Administrations in every county that will serve as a conduit between the People and the Grand Jury; and, an investigative body for the Grand Jury. This Administrative Body will provide orientation, guidance and administration for the trial and grand juries. Grand Juries are seated for short periods of time; maybe a week; or, maybe five (5) or six (6) days out of a month, depending upon the county  court case workload. It would be a wrong-doing to seat a Grand Jury indefinitely.

After filing press releases in every county across America which called for an assemblage of the People to re-constitute the Common Law Grand Jury in each of the 3,143 counties, we established a Unified State Common Law Grand Jury in each of the fifty (50) States; then, we assembled across the Nation to form the Unified United States Common Law Grand Jury; an extraordinary act necessary to secure our Nation.

THE SOLE PURPOSE OF THIS GRAND JURY is to meet head-on those subverts of the United States of America who are warring against the Constitution; and, thereby, warring against We the People. This Unified United States Common Law Grand Jury, as is customary to juries, will remain seated until it achieves its goal of securing Liberty and reinstating self-government at the grass-roots level, i.e., the county level, by reinstating justice in our courts.

SELF-GOVERNMENT requires self-rule and a liberated mind; a mind uncontrolled by Uncle Sam. The political process is one thing; politics is another. Because we desire liberty, we must exercise the former and exorcize the latter. The idea that we can elect lawyers and politicians to solve our woes is absurd. We have been indoctrinated by the powers that be to think in the following opposing terms which are in reality “two sides of the same coin”. To think in opposing terms would leave us divided, never able to come to solidarity of truth.

  • As long as We the People are pitted by right verses left, we will never find the center, which is where liberty
  • A liberal mind requires conservative thinking, which is where liberty is
  • A republican government requires a democratic selection of our representatives which is where liberty is

Unalienable rights can only be had by those who have found and live under a Common Law Constitution. George Washington said: “Government is not reason, it is not eloquence; it is force! Like fire, it is a dangerous servant and a fearful master; never for a moment should it be left to  irresponsible action.” And yet, we have been indoctrinated into believing we can control that fire with politics, which is the epitome of irresponsible actions. George Washington, in his farewell address, left us the following warning: “However [political parties] may now and then answer popular ends, they are likely, in the course of time and things, to become potent engines, by which cunning, ambitious and unprincipled men will be enabled to subvert the power of the people; and, to usurp for themselves the reins of government, destroying afterwards the very engines which have lifted them to unjust dominion.” And, it was Thomas Jefferson who pulled back the curtain, unveiling the power behind that fire when he said: “If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation, then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around


them will deprive the people of all property until their children wake up homeless on the continent  their Fathers conquered.”

Presently the BAR Association, created and controlled by banksters, control our judicial system. They have corporatized our government at every level; from the most menial village to Washington. They control our legislators; they control our financial system; they robbed our gold and silver; they destroyed our manufacturing base; they taxed us into submission; they drove us into a debt from which it is impossible to recover; they keep us in perpetual war; they stole our press; they control our entertainment and media; and, through those means, they have demoralized us; they control our education; they rewrote our history; they spy on us; they track us; they licensed our liberties; they have taken control of our families; they send swarms of “child protective service workers” to interfere with the rearing of our children; they have incorporated our churches; they rob our elderly in probate courts; they steal our children in family court; they send swarms of code enforcement officers to control our every move; they incarcerate anyone who challenges their authority and claims their God-given right  as a sovereign; they have bankrupted our nation; and, they are auctioning off our resources to foreign countries. They have done and continue to do all this because they control our courts; and, thereby, our government. This is the work of the veiled “powers that be”. By taking back our courts, we will take back everything; we will reset the clock to 1789; and, we will then introduce the corrupt “powers that be” to the righteous power of Justice.

CAMPAIGN FOR JUSTICE 2016 — Now that you have an understanding of what America was meant to be, which is “FREE” and “INDEPENDENT”, you have a duty to yourself and your posterity to act upon this new-found knowledge by sounding the alarm; and, thereby, joining We the People peacefully save America in We the Peoples’ Campaign for Justice.

Through this paper Sheriffs and Marshal are being reminded that an oath to defend the Constitution for the United States of America was taken by each; therefore, each has a duty to act. When a Sheriff or Marshal remains silent or inactive he becomes a co-conspirator in the subversion.

By John W. Whitehead
“After five years of Hitler’s dictatorship, the Nazi police had won the FBI’s seal of approval.”— Historian Robert Gellately

Adolf Hitler is alive and well in the United States, and he is fast rising to power.”—Paul Craig Roberts, former Assistant Secretary of the Treasury, on the danger posed by the FBI to our civil liberties

Lately, there’s been a lot of rhetoric comparing Donald Trump to Adolf Hitler. The concern is that a Nazi-type regime may be rising in America.

That process, however, began a long time ago.

In fact, following the second World War, the U.S. government recruited Hitler’s employees, adopted his protocols, embraced his mindset about law and order, implemented his tactics in incremental steps, and began to lay the foundations for the rise of the Fourth Reich.

Sounds far-fetched? Read on. It’s all documented.

As historian Robert Gellately recounts, the Nazi police state was initially so admired for its efficiency and order by the world powers of the day that J. Edgar Hoover, then-head of the FBI, actually sent one of his right-hand men, Edmund Patrick Coffey, to Berlin in January 1938 at the invitation of Germany’s secret police—the Gestapo.

The FBI was so impressed with the Nazi regime that, according to the New York Times, in the decades after World War II, the FBI, along with other government agencies, aggressively recruited at least a thousand Nazis, including some of Hitler’s highest henchmen.

All told, thousands of Nazi collaborators—including the head of a Nazi concentration camp, among others—were given secret visas and brought to America by way of Project Paperclip. Subsequently, they were hired on as spies and informants, and then camouflaged to ensure that their true identities and ties to Hitler’s holocaust machine would remain unknown. All the while, thousands of Jewish refugees were refused entry visas to the U.S. on the grounds that it could threaten national security.

Adding further insult to injury, American taxpayers have been paying to keep these ex-Nazis on the U.S. government’s payroll ever since. And in true Gestapo fashion, anyone who has dared to blow the whistle on the FBI’s illicit Nazi ties has found himself spied upon, intimidated, harassed and labeled a threat to national security.

As if the government’s covert, taxpayer-funded employment of Nazis after World War II wasn’t bad enough, U.S. government agencies—the FBI, CIA and the military—have fully embraced many of the Nazi’s well-honed policing tactics, and have used them repeatedly against American citizens.

Indeed, with every passing day, the United States government borrows yet another leaf from Nazi Germany’s playbook: Secret police. Secret courts. Secret government agencies. Surveillance. Censorship. Intimidation. Harassment. Torture. Brutality. Widespread corruption. Entrapment. Indoctrination. Indefinite detention.

These are not tactics used by constitutional republics, where the rule of law and the rights of the citizenry reign supreme. Rather, they are the hallmarks of authoritarian regimes, where the only law that counts comes in the form of heavy-handed, unilateral dictates from a supreme ruler who uses a secret police to control the populace.

That danger is now posed by the FBI, whose laundry list of crimes against the American people includes surveillance, disinformation, blackmail, entrapment, intimidation tactics, harassment and indoctrination, governmental overreach, abuse, misconduct, trespassing, enabling criminal activity, and damaging private property, and that’s just based on what we know.

Whether the FBI is planting undercover agents in churches, synagogues and mosques; issuing fake emergency letters to gain access to Americans’ phone records; using intimidation tactics to silence Americans who are critical of the government; recruiting high school students to spy on and report fellow students who show signs of being future terrorists; or persuading impressionable individuals to plot acts of terror and then entrapping them, the overall impression of the nation’s secret police force is that of a well-dressed thug, flexing its muscles and doing the boss’ dirty work of ensuring compliance, keeping tabs on potential dissidents, and punishing those who dare to challenge the status quo.

Whatever minimal restrictions initially kept the FBI’s surveillance activities within the bounds of the law have all but disappeared post-9/11. Since then, the FBI has been transformed into a mammoth federal policing and surveillance agency that largely operates as a power unto itself, beyond the reach of established laws, court rulings and legislative mandates.

Consider the FBI’s far-reaching powers to surveil, detain, interrogate, investigate, prosecute, punish, police and generally act as a law unto themselves—much like their Nazi cousins, the Gestapo—and then try to convince yourself that the United States is still a constitutional republic.

Just like the Gestapo, the FBI has vast resources, vast investigatory powers, and vast discretion to determine who is an enemy of the state.

Today, the FBI employs more than 35,000 individuals and operates more than 56 field offices in major cities across the U.S., as well as 400 resident agencies in smaller towns, and more than 50 international offices. In addition to their “data campus,” which houses more than 96 million sets of fingerprints from across the United States and elsewhere, the FBI has also built a vast repository of “profiles of tens of thousands of Americans and legal residents who are not accused of any crime. What they have done is appear to be acting suspiciously to a town sheriff, a traffic cop or even a neighbor.” The FBI’s burgeoning databases on Americans are not only being added to and used by local police agencies, but are also being made available to employers for real-time background checks.

All of this is made possible by the agency’s nearly unlimited resources (its minimum budget alone in fiscal year 2015 was $8.3 billion), the government’s vast arsenal of technology, the interconnectedness of government intelligence agencies, and information sharing through fusion centers—data collecting intelligence agencies spread throughout the country that constantly monitor communications (including those of American citizens), everything from internet activity and web searches to text messages, phone calls and emails.

Much like the Gestapo spied on mail and phone calls, FBI agents have carte blanche access to the citizenry’s most personal information.

Working through the U.S. Post Office, the FBI has access to every piece of mail that passes through the postal system: more than 160 billion pieces are scanned and recorded annually. Moreover, the agency’s National Security Letters, one of the many illicit powers authorized by the USA Patriot Act, allows the FBI to secretly demand that banks, phone companies, and other businesses provide them with customer information and not disclose those demands to the customer. An internal audit of the agency found that the FBI practice of issuing tens of thousands of NSLs every year for sensitive information such as phone and financial records, often in non-emergency cases, is riddled with widespread constitutional violations.

Much like the Gestapo’s sophisticated surveillance programs, the FBI’s spying capabilities can delve into Americans’ most intimate details (and allow local police to do so, as well).

In addition to technology (which is shared with police agencies) that allows them to listen in on phone calls, read emails and text messages, and monitor web activities, the FBI’s surveillance boasts an invasive collection of spy tools ranging from Stingray devices that can track the location of cell phones to Triggerfish devices which allow agents to eavesdrop on phone calls.  In one case, the FBI actually managed to remotely reprogram a “suspect’s” wireless internet card so that it would send “real-time cell-site location data to Verizon, which forwarded the data to the FBI.” Law enforcement agencies are also using social media tracking software to monitor Facebook, Twitter and Instagram posts. Moreover, secret FBI rules also allow agents to spy on journalists without significant judicial oversight.

Much like the Gestapo’s ability to profile based on race and religion, and its assumption of guilt by association, the FBI’s approach to pre-crime allows it to profile Americans based on a broad range of characteristics including race and religion.

The agency’s biometric database has grown to massive proportions, the largest in the world, encompassing everything from fingerprints, palm, face and iris scans to DNA, and is being increasingly shared between federal, state and local law enforcement agencies in an effort to target potential criminals long before they ever commit a crime. This is what’s known as pre-crime. Yet it’s not just your actions that will get you in trouble. In many cases, it’s also who you know—even minimally—and where your sympathies lie that could land you on a government watch list. Moreover, as the Intercept reports, despite anti-profiling prohibitions, the bureau “claims considerable latitude to use race, ethnicity, nationality, and religion in deciding which people and communities to investigate.”

Much like the Gestapo’s power to render anyone an enemy of the state, the FBI has the power to label anyone a domestic terrorist.

As part of the government’s so-called ongoing war on terror, the nation’s de facto secret police force has begun using the terms “anti-government,” “extremist” and “terrorist” interchangeably. Moreover, the government continues to add to its growing list of characteristics that can be used to identify an individual (especially anyone who disagrees with the government) as a potential domestic terrorist. For instance, you might be a domestic terrorist in the eyes of the FBI (and its network of snitches) if you:

  • express libertarian philosophies (statements, bumper stickers)
  • exhibit Second Amendment-oriented views (NRA or gun club membership)
  • read survivalist literature, including apocalyptic fictional books
  • show signs of self-sufficiency (stockpiling food, ammo, hand tools, medical supplies)
  • fear an economic collapse
  • buy gold and barter items
  • subscribe to religious views concerning the book of Revelation
  • voice fears about Big Brother or big government
  • expound about constitutional rights and civil liberties
  • believe in a New World Order conspiracy

Much like the Gestapo infiltrated communities in order to spy on the German citizenry, the FBI routinely infiltrates political and religious groups, as well as businesses.

As Cora Currier writes for the Intercept: “Using loopholes it has kept secret for years, the FBI can in certain circumstances bypass its own rules in order to send undercover agents or informants into political and religious organizations, as well as schools, clubs, and businesses…” The FBI has even been paying Geek Squad technicians at Best Buy to spy on customers’ computers without a warrant.

Just as the Gestapo united and militarized Germany’s police forces into a national police force, America’s police forces have largely been federalized and turned into a national police force.

In addition to government programs that provide the nation’s police forces with military equipment and training, the FBI also operates a National Academy that trains thousands of police chiefs every year and indoctrinates them into an agency mindset that advocates the use of surveillance technology and information sharing between local, state, federal, and international agencies.

Just as the Gestapo’s secret files on political leaders were used to intimidate and coerce, the FBI’s files on anyone suspected of “anti-government” sentiment have been similarly abused.

As countless documents make clear, the FBI has no qualms about using its extensive powers in order to blackmail politicians, spy on celebrities and high-ranking government officials, and intimidate and attempt to discredit dissidents of all stripes. For example, not only did the FBI follow Martin Luther King Jr. and bug his phones and hotel rooms, but agents also sent him anonymous letters urging him to commit suicide and pressured a Massachusetts college into dropping King as its commencement speaker.

Just as the Gestapo carried out entrapment operations, the FBI has become a master in the art of entrapment.

In the wake of the 9/11 terrorist attacks the FBI has not only targeted vulnerable individuals but has also lured or blackmailed them into fake terror plots while actually equipping them with the organization, money, weapons and motivation to carry out the plots—entrapment—and then jailing or deporting them for their so-called terrorist plotting. This is what the FBI characterizes as “forward leaning—preventative—prosecutions.” In addition to creating certain crimes in order to then “solve” them, the FBI also gives certain informants permission to break the law, “including everything from buying and selling illegal drugs to bribing government officials and plotting robberies,” in exchange for their cooperation on other fronts. USA Today estimates that agents have authorized criminals to engage in as many as 15 crimes a day. Some of these informants are getting paid astronomical sums: one particularly unsavory fellow, later arrested for attempting to run over a police officer, was actually paid $85,000 for his help laying the trap for an entrapment scheme.

When and if a true history of the FBI is ever written, it will not only track the rise of the American police state but it will also chart the decline of freedom in America, in much the same way that the empowerment of Germany’s secret police tracked with the rise of the Nazi regime.

How did the Gestapo become the terror of the Third Reich?

It did so by creating a sophisticated surveillance and law enforcement system that relied for its success on the cooperation of the military, the police, the intelligence community, neighborhood watchdogs, government workers for the post office and railroads, ordinary civil servants, and a nation of snitches inclined to report “rumors, deviant behavior, or even just loose talk.”

In other words, ordinary citizens working with government agents helped create the monster that became Nazi Germany. Writing for the New York Times, Barry Ewen paints a particularly chilling portrait of how an entire nation becomes complicit in its own downfall by looking the other way:

In what may be his most provocative statement, [author Eric A.] Johnson says that ‘‘most Germans may not even have realized until very late in the war, if ever, that they were living in a vile dictatorship.’’ This is not to say that they were unaware of the Holocaust; Johnson demonstrates that millions of Germans must have known at least some of the truth. But, he concludes, ‘‘a tacit Faustian bargain was struck between the regime and the citizenry.’’ The government looked the other way when petty crimes were being committed. Ordinary Germans looked the other way when Jews were being rounded up and murdered; they abetted one of the greatest crimes of the 20th century not through active collaboration but through passivity, denial and indifference.

Much like the German people, “we the people” have become passive, polarized, gullible, easily manipulated, and lacking in critical thinking skills.  Distracted by entertainment spectacles, politics and screen devices, we too are complicit, silent partners in creating a police state similar to the terror practiced by former regimes.

Can the Fourth Reich happen here?

As I point out in my book Battlefield America: The War on the American People, it’s already happening right under our noses.
