The Real Reasons Why Trump Has Flipped On His Campaign Promises

May 6th, 2017 by

http://alt-market.com/articles/3182-the-real-reasons-why-trump-has-flipped-on-his-campaign-promises

By Brandon Smith

Back in December of 2016 I wrote an article titled ‘Trump Is Exactly Where The Elites Want Him’, which I think was very difficult for a large part of the liberty movement to read and accept. In that article I outlined the future of the Trump presidency; a future dominated by Washington insiders, Goldman Sachs internationalists and Neo-Con warmongers. Trump, at the very onset of his administration, broke one of his most important campaign promises — to “drain the swamp.” Instead, he filled his cabinet with all of the same swamp creatures he originally attacked; the same swamp creatures Hillary Clinton was notorious for serving.

I also warned in numerous articles that because of this initial broken promise, conservatives should not expect that Trump would fulfill most if any of his original plans. In the BEST CASE SCENARIO, Trump is surrounded by enemies dictating policy from every corner and corridor of the White House.

This article, of course, triggered quite a bit of wrath from hardcore Trump supporters. And, of course, time has so far proven I was right yet again.

The only argument at this point in defense of Trump is that it is still very early in his first year and that no president should be expected to accomplish much in just a few months. Okay, I’ll entertain that notion, but let’s be realistic here and look at the current circumstances.

As I write this, Congress is on the brink of forging a spending bill which essentially removes ALL backing for Trump’s original projects, including the southern border wall. Now, given, the bill only provides funding for government until the end of September, but we have witnessed very little resistance from the Trump administration so far. Are we about to see the Republicans roll over yet again in the name of avoiding a government shutdown? I would say yes, for now.

This is one area where Trump could light a firestorm. By forcing a government shutdown, a real fight for conservative national projects and spending cuts could take place. Yet, we are still struggling with the broken monstrosity of Obamacare, we have yet to see any plan for defunding Planned Parenthood, the border wall looks to be a distant dream and military spending is slated to increase by $54 billion. At this point Trump supporters are left wondering where their limited government pit bull negotiator disappeared to?

While Trump recently indicated that a shutdown in September may be a good thing for the U.S., I’m just not buying it.

On the foreign front, Trump has been backing off of his threats against NAFTA. In an interview with The Wall Street Journal, Trump explained his decision by saying that he is “a nationalist and a globalist.” Yikes.

Trump has now also refused to label China a currency manipulator, which was an action many originally thought he would pursue. This decision, in my view, is likely in preparation for a strike on North Korea; a war no one asked for and which America cannot possibly afford at this time. China’s move to step back from its protective stance with North Korea supports my longstanding argument that Eastern nations are completely tied to globalist geopolitics; meaning, they do what they are told. If China remains hands-off, a conflict with North Korea is nearly a certainty.

This kind of saber rattling would be contrary to Trump’s position on Iraq during his campaign, which was, to summarize his many remarks, a quagmire, a mess of a war that made little sense and gained America nothing. If Iraq was a mess, then what will North Korea be with its far better armed military and more ideologically dedicated soldiers? A war in North Korea would take twice as much time and capital to complete, but maybe that is the point…

So, the question is, why has Trump flipped so completely and so quickly on is political positions since November of last year? I believe there are at least two identifiable reasons.

First, it is important to note that Trump was placed in office as a means to scapegoat all conservatives and the principles of sovereignty and limited government for the disasters that will inevitably follow. This is the premise that I used to successfully predict Trump’s election win, and it is the premise that I used to successfully predict Trump’s behavior and policy shifts up to this point. Trump is in office for one reason — to destroy the name of conservatism for all time.

That said, Trump’s support from many conservatives has not been as blind and faithful as the globalists might have hoped. We remain rather critical, and thankfully, ever watchful. We are not a zombie mob that can be easily exploited by some fearless leader on a white horse; unlike Obama’s sycophantic army of liberal followers, we still retain our principles.

This does not necessarily save us from being scapegoated by internationalist propaganda in the years to come. I have heard many argue that Trump’s sudden flip-flop negates the idea that Trump is a conservative scapegoat because “he is not acting like a conservative.” These people are oblivious to human psychology.

The fact is, Trump ran on a conservative nationalist platform, and his rhetoric continues to fuel his nationalist image, even if his actions do not. The globalists will paint him as a conservative and the majority of people around the world will continue to accept this narrative because rhetoric is often more powerful in people’s minds than tangible results. Liberals in particular will never let go of the idea that Trump is a conservative because they desperately long for vindication that conservative principles are “evil.” Every mistake Trump makes, though not conservative at all in nature, will be blamed on conservatism and nationalism as a whole. From what I have seen so far, the only people that are rationally critical of Trump as a conservative are actual liberty minded conservatives.

Yes, we despise the crazed cultural Marxists of the social justice cult, and we are rightly concerned about the liberal population’s shift towards full bore communism. Plus, we do not like Islamic extremism and won’t tolerate it within our borders. But we also are not too keen on the idea of being puppets for a fake conservative government, either.

This is one reason I believe Trump has suddenly flipped; the globalist scheme to co-opt the liberty movement and constitutional conservatives has failed.  It is a scheme I warned about months before the election in my article ‘Clinton vs. Trump And The Co-Option Of The Liberty Movement’. At this time, there is no point in Trump continuing to play his role as a stalwart of sovereignty. We have not been won over in a way that makes us easy to manipulate, which means we might not support certain globalist initiatives like martial law in the wake of a crisis, a national federalized ID card in the name of immigration control, regime changes in Syria or North Korea, etc. We may even organize in opposition to such measures.

This leads to the next reason why I believe Trump has so swiftly reversed his positions: Perhaps he and his establishment handlers no longer need to maintain the conservative sovereignty facade because a full spectrum crisis is about to take place; a crisis so consuming that the public will be completely distracted while the elites push their agenda forward and blame conservatives at the same time.

The move against North Korea may be part of this event. By itself, North Korea would be a very cumbersome regional war that could bankrupt the U.S. (officially bankrupt as opposed to technically bankrupt). The level of determination to increase tensions with North Korea is truly astounding. I have not seen such senseless rhetoric from the White House since the Iraq War.  Obama was a war crazed lunatic, but with Trump and North Korea, there doesn’t even seem to be much of an attempt at an explanation as to why a war is suddenly necessary.  It just seems to be scheduled to happen.

However, I continue to believe that a greater crisis is brewing that is economic and global in nature. With numerous financial bubbles artificially inflated over at least eight years of central bank stimulus, the question is not “if” but WHEN the system will enter the final stages of its ongoing collapse.

The behavior of the Trump administration may be nothing more than poor timing or poor planning on the part of the globalist establishment. Perhaps they just didn’t play this part of the long game in an expert manner. But, I tend towards caution rather than naive hope and unicorns.

The record setting flip-flop by Trump should not be taken lightly or simply treated as aimless schizophrenia on the part of the White House.  While the Obama administration flipped on numerous campaign promises, they did so subtly while maintaining their lies in a strategic way for two full terms. This is not what is happening today. Trump’s dramatic change, in my view, should be taken as a signal that a much greater game is afoot, with far higher stakes. It should also be treated as a sign that if a crisis is on the verge of being engineered, then it will be happening rather soon, perhaps before 2017 is over.

There will be ongoing arguments as to whether the Trump White House has been hijacked or if it was a controlled element all along. I lean more towards the position that it was controlled all along. I have seen little to no resistance on the part of Trump against the establishment, only rhetoric. And, as I have said so many times, rhetoric is meaningless, only actions matter.

It is exceedingly positive in a way that Trump’s reversal has been so fast and so complete. It shows that conservatives and liberty champions have not been subsumed into the so called “alt-right” (a made up term designed to pigeonhole and demonize all true conservatives); that the elites miserably bungled their plans to co-opt us. That said, for every success there are consequences. It may be that our refusal to “buy into” the Trump momentum and cast off our skepticism has caused the establishment to adjust their timetable. And, when the elites do not get what they want, they tend to fall back on their tried and true tool kit of violence and disaster.

  1. TAXATION – As a Texan National you will not be subject to comply with any tax of the State of Texas or parts of the States of Oklahoma, Kansas, New Mexico, Colorado, and Wyoming, or the United States.

America today will remain viable if one prefers it as what has come to be considered “traditional” medicine.

 

  1. BANKING – The Republic of Texas will not charter banks that would profit from the use of fractional reserve banking or by charging interest (usury).

Justice will be achieved through common law through a jury of one’s peers, and any statutes written by the Texan National Government shall be kept to a minimum and written in plain English so that all can read and understand them.

 

  1. GOVERNMENT – The Republic of Texas believes that the best government is the Texan people’s local government. Government in the Republic of Texas shall be limited with the greatest authority being given to Texan National’s local municipalities and Counties rather than the National government.

  1. POLITICS – In the Republic of Texas there will be no political parties. Those who run for political office do so based on their own merits and record. Strict term limits exist for all politicians to avoid corruption.

 

  1. Future examples without compliance to the Corporatist Socialism Tyrannical Governments of present enforcers: airports without the Transportation Security Administration; gun sales without the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives; lands protected by peace officers without the military style color of law enforcers: land development without the Endangered Species Act, EPA, Climate

Control; new congressional districts without the Voting Rights Act; and a new guest worker program without ICE and Washington gridlock over immigration reform. The new norm is with a much leaner government that bears little resemblance to the enforcers’ full service nation it left behind. Texan Republic Common Law: 1 Let it be written, Our word is our bond and we will not intentionally harm another living soul and will respect and bring no harm to anyone’s private property (ies).

To Ignore Principles Is To Invite Chaos

May 3rd, 2017 by

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

What Kind of People Callously Celebrate Unprovoked War?

NO THOUGHT BEYOND THE DOLLAR

WAR

By Joe McCutchen

Times Record editorial Sunday, April 30, 2017

Title: Report shows how vital military is to the area.

“Everyone knows just how important the military is.” “ (If you don’t, you should.)”

Equating dollar income with death, destruction & torture is the depth of depravity and debauchery. Building an economy through force of war and celebrating it is tragically deranged.

The editor’s celebration of the now ongoing 16 years of preemptive, unprovoked 7 wars, now Syria, replete with a U.S. military presence in 160 countries, naval armadas in the Yellow, Mediterranean, So. China & Sea of Japan, along with the Persian Gulf, attest to the fact insanity prevails as shown by this editor that celebrates war as a source of revenue is indeed as demented as the occupants of the D.C. Swamp, no exception. I failed to note the numbers of American troops strewn across these 160 sovereign nations in their pursuit of Armageddon. Do you get the picture?

Huge numbers of American troops are on the Latvian & Estonian borders complimented by F-35 overflights, contiguous with Russia (certainly not an enemy) and huge concentrations in Poland are a sure sign that peace initiatives are never to be implemented. Unfortunately American citizens have assumed the role of passivity through ignorance, laziness, fear, indoctrinations, conditioning & other maladies, while the madmen in DC—Boozman, Cotton, Womack, & all the others, mostly Republican neocons, busily weave their web for in all likelihood a nuclear conflagration resulting from their quest for global hegemony. 

Editor, you and the millions of American enablers enjoy your billions of taxpayer dollars built on murder, torture, destruction, poverty, and all the other inhumane products resulting from in this case 8 unprovoked wars, and more to come.

Much of our nation is behaving like a collection of uncivilized banshees celebrating, cheering, flag waving at the sight of any military contingent. The military’s only proper job is to defend our sovereighty & secure our national borders & nothing else.

Twice decorated, Medal of Honor winner Marine Corps Major General Smedley Butler said it best, “War is a Racket”.  The real heroes of this decade are Julian Assange, Edward Snowden, & Bradley Manning, who have in all likelihood surrendered their lives to make Americans aware of the government police state surveillance of every citizen around the Globe by the FBI, CIA, NSA, & a host of others.

Enjoy your sordid blood money!

Reply to Bundy Stand Off: – – A Century of Abuse

May 1st, 2017 by

http://www.paulstramer.net/2017/04/reply-to-bundy-stand-off-century-of.html

COMMON LAWBy Anna Von Reitz

Doctor Coffman  forgot or doesn’t know one particularly vitally important fact:  Andrew Jackson paid off the debt that western state land originally secured back in 1804.  

There has been no valid debt against our land since 1804 in the western states or any other state.  This is an unforeseen affect of the fraud.  Though the perps have tried their best to harm us and palm off their debts, they can’t have it both ways at the same time.  

Can George down the street make you liable for his debts?  For example, can he go to the garage and have his car repaired in your name?  No? 

So why is everyone standing around “accepting the debts” of the Territorial and Municipal United States “as if” the debts of these foreign entities were yours? 

Wake up!  Here are the magic words:  “Non-Assumpsit”. 

Stop assuming that you owe the debts of the foreign Territorial United States and equally, stop assuming that you owe the debts of the foreign Municipal United States.  

These entities which claim to “represent” you — don’t.  

They have pretended to be your agents.  They’ve told you that.  They’ve told other people that all around the world the same lie.  

But the fact is that they haven’t been your representatives since the passage of their very own corporate XVIIIIth Amendment.  They have had no Fiduciary relationship to you or your states at all for a hundred and fifty years!  

And without a Fiduciary capacity, they have no ability to sign contracts, no ability to obligate you in any manner whatsoever.  Neither do the municipalities formed under their territorial government auspices. 

They got around this fact by deceit—- fraud, in other words.  

Here’s an example:  “Congress” passes an act changing the meaning of “state, States and United States” to mean “the territories and District of Columbia”.  (13 Stat. 223, 306, ch. 173, sec. 182, June 30, 1864.     Bear in mind that at this point in history “Congress” wasn’t acting as any Congress related to you or your states of the Union.  It was acting as the governing body of the “territories and District of Columbia”. 

A second similar “redefinition” makes “United States” equivalent to “District of Columbia Municipal Corporation”—– much to the dismay of certain parties in the Philippines who thought they had a contract with the “United States” when in fact all they had was a contract with a defunct corporation. 

Don’t you all think its time you heard the birds sing again? 

Whatever these yahoos have done and whatever they are claiming, they are wrong.  They have no jurisdiction related to the Bundys.  They have no ability to claim the lands of the western states.   All the “western states” have to do is organize their actual land jurisdiction government and accept the federal lands they are owed.  So do it.  

Follow the steps I have given you.  Surrender the “FEDERAL PERSON” named after you, expatriate back to your actual birth right political status, form your county jural assemblies, then your state assembly—– and claim your land back to your own ownership. 

It is past time for all of you to get up on your hind legs and learn your own history and operate your own government.   Thanks to the Fifty States Claim you still have a  home state to go “home” to and a government to operate it.   

Dr. Coffman has shed light on the history of the abuse of the western states and their land holdings by the federal government and its agencies— entities that have at best a proprietorship—- but the whole truth of the matter is that we have allowed this abuse by our failure to operate our own actual state governments.  

Most people have forgotten or never known the essentials facts.  

Our states are our nations.  We are born as Wisconsinites, Minnesotans, Texans, Floridians, and so on.  That’s why state banks are national banks.  That’s why we are a union of fifty nation-states, not a nation of fifty-seven “states of states”.  

We have let the “hired help” run rampant for so long that they have assumed that they are in charge and are the actual beneficial owners.  Time to inform them — and the rest of the world — otherwise. 

The Bundys have begun that noble effort— and maybe they did it without all the facts firmly in view, including all the lies that have been told about them and about us and about our states — but in truth.  

And the truth shall set you—and the Bundys—- free.

COMMON LAW

Let’s Settle This Hash……

April 29th, 2017 by

http://www.paulstramer.net/2017/04/lets-settle-this-hash.html

de jure governmentBy Anna Von Reitz

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

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

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

But here’s the kicker—- Franklin held the office of Post Master (land) not Postmaster (sea) —- and on top of that, none of these quasi-military offices like “Lieutenant Governor” and “Attorney General” and “Postmaster General” even existed prior to the Civil War.

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

Trojan HorseBy Anna Von Reitz

Trojan Horse
Everybody— listen up! You need to back out of this General Post Office giddy up and do not support their “Continental Army” — it is a Trojan Horse operation.

The claims made by Keith Livingway that he bought the office of the United States Postmaster General — basically at an estate sale— should make you roll your eyes. That would be like me claiming to be a German Princess a hundred years after the German Monarchy died. Offices have no meaning and neither do titles once the organizations giving rise to them are defunct.
The “office” he claims to hold was created by The United States of America, (Incorporated) which went bankrupt in 1907.
Get a clue, here, gentlemen—- no incorporated entity is enabled to function as a sovereign government.

That “thing” was no more your government than the “thing” sitting in Washington, DC now.
They are both nothing but private, mostly foreign-owned, for-profit “governmental services corporations” that have used deceptively similar names to promote fraud.

So when Keith says he is the “Postmaster General of the United States” and he refers to “The United States of America” you now know that it is a bogus claim and that that is not The United States of America referenced in our founding documents.
The United States of America referenced in our founding documents was and is an unincorporated business entity owned and operated by the states and ultimately by the people of this country. Got that? Unincorporated.
The actual office of the United States Post Master (land jurisdiction) is a completely different office from any “Postmaster” (sea jurisdiction). See the difference? Post Master — two separate words in Upper and Lower case versus “Postmaster” — one word run together?

Here’s another clue that Keith is bogus.

No office of “Postmaster General” existed anywhere at all until after the Civil War when all this fraud began. Neither did we have any “Attorney Generals” or “Lieutenant Governors” or any of the other quasi-military offices and lingo.
That is all part of the fraud.

Now the same two crime syndicates that brought us the so-called “American Civil War”—- which was never declared and never ended with a peace treaty, and which is therefore revealed to be nothing but a stinking illegal private commercial mercenary fight on our shores—- think that they will cause trouble here again.

They got us to fight each other once for their benefit and they think they will do it again. Are we dumb enough for that?
They want a war because it profits them.

They have taken out million and multi-million dollar life insurance policies on every American. They get to collect on those for every one of us killed. And they are hard up for cash.
Hello?

Just like a guy who takes out a life insurance policy on his wife, kills her, gets the money, and runs off with his mistress. Same crappola.

Not only that, but they get to avoid paying their debts to their Priority Creditors once they are dead— and guess who their Priority Creditors are? That’s right. You and me.

They did the same thing to the Jews in Germany. The Jews were the Priority Creditors of Hitler’s government.
And then, once we are dead, they get to come in and confiscate all our property— our homes, businesses, all our personal effects— as “abandoned property”. That is their favorite excuse for their larceny.

That’s what they tried to pass off in the Philippines— that the actual unincorporated government of the actual United States (not the Territorial United States, not the Municipal United States, not the corporations) no longer exists, and that all the land and gold and other assets belonging to the American states and people are up for grabs.
Finally, the whipped cream on top of the shit pile— they get to charge everyone who is left alive for the “service” of killing us.
Have you all got the picture now?

The way to “fight” these vermin is by exposing them and their aims, not by going along with their plan and giving them an excuse to start any armed fight on our soil.
This is a bunch of criminals and it is a criminal matter— not a political one.
Spread the word. Let everyone that you know in active duty military or retired military know what is going on here— and otherwise give them no excuse to use violence. None.
Wise as serpents. Gentle as doves.

This Lawsuit Could Shatter ALL Federal Gun Control Laws

April 26th, 2017 by

https://www.lewrockwell.com/2017/04/no_author/end-federal-gun-control-laws/

By Bob Owens
Bearing Arms

The federal trial of a Kansas man for manufacturing and selling  firearms and silencers without a federal license could very well turn out to be the pivotal case that not only challenges the constitutionality of the National Firearms Act of 1934, but also every federal firearms law ever passed in a battle that will determine whether it is the states or the federal government that has the constitutional right to pass gun laws.

Put bluntly, this could be huge.

When Shane Cox began selling his homemade firearms and silencers out of his military surplus store, he stamped “Made in Kansas” on them to assure buyers that a Kansas law would prevent federal prosecution of anyone owning firearms made, sold and kept in the state.

The 45-year-old Chanute resident also handed out copies to customers of the Second Amendment Protection Act passed in 2013 by the Kansas Legislature and signed by Gov. Sam Brownback, and even collected sales taxes. His biggest selling item was unregistered gun silencers that were flying out of the shop as fast as Cox could make them, prosecutors said later. One of those customers – 28-year-old Jeremy Kettler of Chanute – was so enthusiastic about the silencer that he posted a video on Facebook.

Current Prices on popular forms of Silver Bullion

But last week a jury found Cox guilty of violating federal law for the manufacture, sale and possession of unregistered firearms and silencers. Kettler was found guilty on one count for possessing the unregistered silencer.

Thank God I Had a Gun:… Chris Bird

The case could reverberate across the country because it cites the Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, pitting the federal government’s right to regulate firearms against the rights of states. The judge overseeing the case expects it ultimately to end up before the U.S. Supreme Court.

At trial, defense attorneys contended their clients believed the Kansas law made their activities legal, arguing they are “caught in the crossfire” of the struggle between the state and the federal government over gun control.

Cox and Kettler were convicted under the National Firearms Act, which is a part of the Internal Revenue code enacted under Congress’ power to levy taxes. The case raises the question of whether that taxing authority can be used to regulate firearms that stay within state borders. Advocates for state’s rights also contend such guns do not fall under Congress’ power to regulate interstate commerce.

After a decades-long wait, we finally appear to have a case that is likely to see the United States Supreme Court have to directly examine whether the Founding Fathers meant what they said when they wrote amendments to a federal Constitution that was designed to tightly bind and constrict the reach of the federal government.

What most 21st Century Americans simply do not grasp is that the Constitution and Bill of Rights were not written to to give rights to the citizens of our then-new nation, but was instead written to tightly constrain the federal government.

Deadly Force – Underst… Massad Ayoob

The Founders had just won a long and brutal war against a far-away foreign government, and the Federalists and Anti-Federalists were locked in a power struggle on just how much power the federal government in a swamp on the Potomac River would be allowed to have. The Federalists were concerned that the federal government would be anemic and far too weak to be of any use at all, while the Anti-Federalists wanted the power to remain where they felt it belonged, with the states, so that the people in each state could determine what is best for that state’s citizens.

The Bill of Rights was added to the Constitution to placate the concerns of the Anti-Federalists, and was mean to be ten strong chains binding down the then-puny federal leviathan to prevent future abuses.

The Second Amendment of the Bill of Rights was written by Founding Fathers who understood the right to bear arms as a natural human right that the Creator bestowed upon each and every human being. How can there be any other right, if the right to defend your life is not the most paramount right of them all?

They almost felt it silly to have to codify a natural right that was so obviously self-evident to them, but knowing that a federal government unchained is a federal government tyrannical, they ratified the basic human right to bear arms within the Second Amendment.

“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.”

OLDDOGS COMMENTS!

Get it through your heads demorats, governments do not give us preexisting rights, they only try to take them away.

How to Correct Your Political Status and Why

April 25th, 2017 by

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

Political StatusBy Anna Von Reitz

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Thank him for his time and attention.

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

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

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

That much is done and over.

But there’s more.

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

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

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

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

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

X and X.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

The Great Fraud is over.

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

The post-war Jefferson Davis: The famous trial that never was

April 24th, 2017 by

http://southernheritage411.com/truehistory.php?th=065

 

By Bill Ward

When the War Between the States ended, the victorious Northerners viewed Jefferson Davis, as the former President of the Confederate States of America, much differently than others who had served the Confederacy.

For example, when Robert E. Lee surrendered to U.S. Grant at Appomattox Court House, the meeting between the two generals was amicable. Lee was received and treated with courtesy as a senior officer. The terms were so apparently lenient, with Grant conceding to Lee’s requests on behalf of his soldiers, the surrender was referred to as “a gentleman’s agreement.”

However, even after signing a loyalty oath, Lee and other former Confederate Army officers and members of the CSA government were later disenfranchised and treated as second-class citizens. But in the eyes of the northern public, Jefferson Davis was set apart for still a different kind of treatment.

On May 10, 1865, about a mile from the town of Irwinville, Georgia, Federal troops captured Davis. With his arrest on that spring morning, his government ceased to exist. His wife, Varina, and their children were sent to Savannah, where she was kept under virtual house arrest and forbidden to leave the city. Because the soldiers, carpetbaggers and Union supporters treated the Davis children so badly, Varina arranged for them to go to Canada along with her mother.

Davis had been taken back to Virginia and imprisoned in Fort Monroe, where he would stay for the next two years. At first, he was bound in leg irons. Guards watched him around the clock but were not permitted to speak to him. He was allowed no visitors; a light burned in his cell day and night; and his only reading material was a Bible. His treatment was a clear violation of the Bill of Rights.

Many Northern Congressmen and newspapers were nothing short of vicious in their public attacks of Davis. They wanted to see him tried for treason and hanged. In one article, and in one very long sentence, the New York Times referred to Davis by every insulting comment and offensive name that was fit to print. Rhetoric far outran legal reasoning.

But if Davis was in an unusual legal predicament, so was the United States government. The dilemma faced by Washington was how to handle the Davis case. The government under Lincoln had created its own major obstacles by spending four years proclaiming that secessionists were “traitors and conspirators.” The U.S. military had silenced opposition to the administration by closing down newspapers that dared challenge the party line or to make the slightest suggestion that secession might be legal. Thousands of Northerners had been jailed for exercising their First Amendment rights, and those thousands had friends with long memories in the Northern bar.

Northern lawyers were angry for having their clients locked in prison with no civil rights as guaranteed by the Constitution; having civilians tried by military courts for non-existent crimes; having a government that ignored the Supreme Court, setting itself above the constitutional plan of checks and balances. They didn’t like having to beg the president for justice for clients convicted by phony courts-martial or locked up for long periods without any trial. Under Lincoln, the U.S. government had become tyrannical, and certainly anything but a free and constitutional society.

The best lawyers of the day were willing to volunteer to defend Jefferson Davis, because they were angry at the way Lincoln’s government had trampled the Bill of Rights and the Constitution for four years. Even those who didn’t believe in secession were repulsed by the conduct of the Republican administration and the U.S. military.

Charles O’Connor of New York, one of the most famous trial lawyers of the era and a man of great stature in the legal profession, volunteered to be Davis’s counsel. Salmon P. Chase, Chief Justice of the Supreme Court, would be the trial judge.

But interesting things began to happen, and the government’s dilemma became even worse. University of Virginia Law Professor, Albert Bledsoe, published a book, “Is Davis a Traitor?” Bledsoe methodically took apart the case against secession, delivering a solid blow to the prosecutors and dampening their zeal to try Davis. Prosecutors actually began to look for a way to avoid trying him without vindicating the South.

Then another method was decided on for prosecution. The attorney general would bring in outside, independent counsel, as we have seen in modern times, such as in Watergate or the Clinton scandals. The government needed someone of great standing in the legal community to be the lead prosecutor. It chose John J. Clifford. But after reviewing the case, Clifford withdrew citing “grave doubts” about the validity of the case. The government could “end up having fought a successful war, only to have it declared unlawful by a Virginia jury,” where Davis’s “crime” was alleged to have been committed.

President Johnson, Lincoln’s successor, thought the easiest way out would be to pardon Davis, as he had pardoned many other Confederates. But Davis refused, saying, “To ask for a pardon would be a confession of guilt.” He wanted a trial to have the issue of secession decided by a court of law — where it should have been decided to begin with — instead of on battlefields. Most Southerners wanted the same.

Northerners either forgot or were unaware of a great secessionist tradition in America. Southerners were not alone in their view that each state had the right to determine its own destiny in the Union. The procedure for joining the Union also applied to withdrawing from the Union.

That thought harkens back to an editorial by the Cincinnati (Ohio) Daily Inquirer, in the summer of 1861, after the “traitor” label was let loose by the North: “The Republican papers are great on treason. . . . It is treason to circulate petitions for a compromise or peaceful readjustment of our national troubles . . . to question the constitutional powers of the President to increase the standing army without authority of law . . . to object to squads of military visiting private houses, and to make search and seizures. . . to question the infallibility of the President, and treason not to concur with him. . . It is treason to talk of hard times; to say that the war might have been avoided. It is treason to be truthful and faithful to the Constitution.”

A year after John Clifford withdrew, the government appointed another special counsel, Richard Dana of Boston, who had written the novel, “Two Years Before the Mast.” But after reviewing the evidence, he agreed with Clifford; the case was a loser. Dana argued that “a conviction will settle nothing in law or national practice not now settled…as a rule of law by war.” Dana observed that the right to secede from the Union had not been settled by civilized means but by military power and the destruction of much life and property in the South. The North should accept its uncivilized victory, however dirty its hands might be, and not expose the fruits of its carnage to scrutiny by a peaceful court of law.

Now, over two years after Davis’s imprisonment and grand jury indictments for treason, the stage was set for the great public trial of the century. Davis had been released from prison on a $100,000 bond, supported by none other than Horace Greeley, the leading abolitionist writer in the North and a former Lincoln supporter. Greeley and a host of others were outraged at the treatment Davis had received, being locked up in a dungeon for more than two years with no speedy trial.

Since two famous special counsels had told the government its case was a loser, finally, none other than the Chief Justice, in a quirk of Constitutional manipulation, devised an idea to avoid a trial without vindicating the South. His amazing solution was little short of genius.

The Fourteenth Amendment had been adopted, which provided that anyone who had engaged in insurrection against the United States and had at one time taken an oath of allegiance (which Davis had done as a U.S. Senator) could not hold public office. The Bill of Rights prevents double jeopardy, so Davis, who had already been punished once by the Fourteenth Amendment in not being permitted to hold public office, couldn’t be tried and punished again for treason.

Chief Justice Salmon P. Chase secretly passed along his clever argument to Davis’s counsel, Charles O’Connor, who then made the motion to dismiss. The Court took the motion under consideration, passing the matter on to the Supreme Court for determination.

In late December 1867 while the motion was pending, President Johnson granted amnesty to everyone in the South, including Davis. But the Davis case was still on the docket. In February 1868, at a dinner party attended by the Chief Justice and a government attorney, they agreed that on the following day a motion for non-prosecution would be made that would dismiss the case. A guest overheard the conversation and reported what was on the minds of most Southerners: “I did not consider that he [Davis] was any more guilty of treason than I was, and that a trial should be insisted upon, which could properly only result in a complete vindication of our cause, and of the action of the many thousands who had fought and of the many thousands who had died for what they felt to be right.”

And so, the case of United States versus Jefferson Davis came to its end — a case that was to be the trial of the century, a great state trial, perhaps the most significant trial in the history of the nation — that never was.

Olddogs Comments!

So much for honest lawyers and politicians! When will you folks understand that people seeking office, power, or money cannot be trusted because they don’t work for us. They work for the International Investment Banking Cartel who claims to own the world. Everything you think you own really belongs to them and your taxes really amount to rent.

The Importance of County Sheriffs

The Importance of County Sheriffs

SHERIFFS

by Anna von Reitz

Like everything else, the office of the county sheriff has been under assault by the rats. All “counties” like all “states” are now operating as commercial corporations. This is indicated by the use of the word “of” in all states that have adopted the Uniform Commercial Code—- thus you have the “State of Utah” and the “County of Maricopa”. Anytime you see the word “of” you know you are dealing with a commercial corporation no different in nature than Sears or Burger King, Inc. These are all “states of states” under the UCC and though they claim to “represent” your government and provide governmental services, you have to always be aware and keep in mind that these corporations are NOT your lawful government. They are just corporations fulfilling “government functions” under contract.

In the same way you and your county sheriff have to be aware that his actual elected office is owed to the land jurisdiction of the Continental United States and to the people who live in his county on the land, NOT to some corporation making a buck providing “public services” and operating in the international jurisdiction of the sea— which is foreign to us.

The actual Constitution and the rights it guarantees are owed to the land jurisdiction of the Continental United States. The Constitution is not being respected by the Federal United States and its “agencies” operating in the international jurisdiction of the sea because these agencies are subcontractors—- privately owned corporations in the business of providing public services, not your true government providing public services.

The upshot of it is that the men employed as “County Sheriffs” are receiving their paychecks funded off your estates and tax dollars from middlemen who are employees of privately owned corporations acting as subcontractors providing “government services”. Those middlemen, including the politicians, don’t think that they actually work for you. They think that they work for the corporation doing business as the “State of Ohio” or the “County of Jackson”.

This creates a gross conflict of interest. Time to straighten this all out.

The place where the pedal hits the metal is the office of the county sheriff.

There are 3100 counties in America. Below are listed the 242 sheriffs who know their actual jobs as sheriffs operating the land jurisdiction of the Continental United States and who honoring the Law of the Land, the actual Constitution.

All the rest of the county sheriffs in America and that is: 3100 – 242 = 2858, have to be educated. They don’t even know who they work for and what their job is and where their authority lies.

It would cost me about $5000 to provide each one of these 242 men with a free copy of our affidavit of probable cause — “You Know Something Is Wrong When….An American Affidavit of Probable Cause” — which explains the history and documents the facts of how we got into this mess.

It’s information these men desperately need, but I am just one old woman and I don’t have the money to print 242 copies of the affidavit for free and the postage and the packaging and the time needed to get book to them and those 2858 other sheriffs who are bumbling around not knowing what their job is or what their obligations to the people are.

Thankfully, there are 390 million other Americans with just as much or more at risk than me—- and there are very few of them who can’t afford $20 to enlighten their own county sheriff. Give these brave men the “ammo” they need to stand up and competently defend their authority and their jurisdiction on the land, and God willing, they will act to defend you and your rights.

As for the rest of them, the 2, 858 “county sheriffs” who think they work for the corporation and not for the people, who are functioning as corporate “law enforcement officers” — that is, commercial mercenaries— instead of peacekeepers acting to enforce the actual Public Law—- they need the information even more desperately and the people living in all those 2,858 counties have a clear, urgent need to make sure their “sheriffs” do understand who they work for and what their job actually is.

Stop a moment— if you read this list and see your County Sheriff is taking a stand to uphold the actual Constitution in your behalf, support him! Get behind him! Help him any way you can! Give him a copy of “You Know Something Is Wrong When….An American Affidavit of Probable Cause” so that he has the specific information he needs to defend what he is doing against the corporate bosses who are misdirecting and misinforming your employees.

If you don’t see your county sheriff listed here, the need to get him up to speed and doing his constitutionally mandated job and exercising the jurisdiction of your county on the land is even MORE urgent.

Hemp is the ultimate cash crop, producing more fiber food and oil than any other plant on the planet

April 20th, 2017 by

 

http://www.fibrealternatives.com/hemp%20is%20the%20ultimate%20cash%20crop_byWmConde.pdf

 

by Wm. Conde

According to the Notre Dame University publication, The Midlands Naturalist, from a 1975 article called, “Feral Hemp in Southern Illinois,” about the wild hemp fields that annual efforts from law enforcement eradication teams cannot wipe out, an acre of hemp produces:

1.

8,000 pounds of hemp seed per acre. When cold-pressed, the 8,000 pounds of hemp seed yield over 300 gallons of hemp seed oil and a byproduct of 6,000 pounds of high protein hemp flour.

Seed oils are both a food and a biodiesel fuel. Currently, the most productive seed oil crops are soybeans, sunflower seeds and rape seed or canola. Each of these three seed oil crops produce between 100 to 120 gallons of oil per acre. Hemp seed produces three times more oil per acre than the next most productive seed oil crops, over 300 gallons per acre, with a byproduct of 3 tons of food per acre. Hemp seed oil is also far more nutritious and beneficial to our health than any other seed oil crop.

In addition to the food and oil produced, there are several other byproducts and benefits to the cultivation of hemp.

2.

Six to ten tons per acre of hemp bast fiber. Bast fiber makes canvas, rope, lace, linen, and ultra-thin specialty papers like cigarette and bible papers.

3.

Twenty-five tons of hemp hurd fiber. Hemp hurd fiber makes all grades of paper, composite building materials, animal bedding and a material for the absorption of liquids and oils.

4.

The deep tap root draws up sub-soil nutrients and then, when the leaves fall from the plant to the ground, they return these nutrients to the top soil for the next crop rotation.

5.

The residual flowers, after the seeds are extracted, produce valuable medicines. Our farmers need this valuable crop returned as an option for commercial agriculture.

As long as marijuana is forbidden, industrial hemp costs will be economically prohibitive due to the artificial regulatory burdens imposed by the prohibition of marijuana. When marijuana and hemp are legally regulated, industrial hemp will return to its rightful

place in our agricultural economy.

Hemp may be the plant that started humans down the road toward civilization with the invention of agriculture. All archaeologists agree that cannabis was among the first crops purposely cultivated by human beings at least over 6,000 years ago, and perhaps

more than 12,000 years ago.

Restoring industrial hemp to its rightful place in agriculture will return much control to our farmers, and move away from dependence on the multinational corporations that dominate our political process and destroy our environment. These capital-intensive, non-sustainable, and environmentally destructive industries have usurped our economic

resources, clear-cut huge tracts of the world’s forests, given us massive oil spills, wars, toxic waste, massive worldwide pollution, global warming and the destruction of entire ecosystems.

Prohibiting the cultivation of this ancient plant, the most productive source of fiber, oil and protein on our planet, is evil. In its place we have industries that give us processes and products that have led to unprecedented ecological crisis and worldwide destruction of the biological heritage that we should bequeath to our children, grandchildren and future generations.

 What Is An Acre Of Hemp Worth Wholesale

 

Do The Math

 

8,000 # of hemp seed gives you oil

 

300 gal at $150.00US per 5 Gal bucket

 

60–5 Gal at $150.00 ea,=$9,000.US

 

6,000 # flour whole sale $2.00 #

 

6000 at $2.00=$12,000. $21,00

 

Just From The Seed

 

31 Tons Of Fiber

 

31 tons raw stalk inbales 31 at $75.00=$2,300.

 

First Value Added Fiber Separation

 

6 tons bast fiber at $1,000+ =$6,000 25 tons of hurds at $300.=$7,500

 Olddogs Comments!

Now ask yourself why America is not already the planets leading producer of Hemp Products. Canada has already opened that door and left us sucking hind tit again. Could it be that the blood suckers in D.C. have lost their minds?

THE BIRTH OF THE DEMOCRATIC

PARTY

The king wanted to go fishing, so he called on the royal weather forecaster and inquired as to the weather forecast for the next few hours. The weatherman assured him that there was no chance of rain in the coming days, so the king went fishing with his wife, the queen.  On the way he met a farmer on his donkey. Upon seeing the king the farmer said, “Your Majesty, you should return to the palace!  In just a short time I expect a huge amount of rain to fall in this area”. The king was polite and considerate, he replied: “I hold the palace meteorologist in high regard.  He is an extensively educated and experienced professional.  And besides, I pay him very high wages.  He gave me a very different forecast. I trust him.” So the king continued on his way.  However, a short time later a torrential rain fell from the sky.  The King and Queen were totally soaked and their entourage chuckled upon seeing them in such a shameful condition. Furious, the king returned to the palace and gave the order to fire the professional.  Then he summoned the farmer and offered him the prestigious and high-paying role of royal forecaster. The farmer said, “Your Majesty, I do not know anything about forecasting.  I obtain my information from my donkey.  If I see my donkey’s ears drooping, it means with certainty that it will rain.” 

So the king hired the donkey. And thus began the practice of hiring dumb asses to work in the government and occupy its highest and most influential positions. The practice is unbroken to this date and thus, the democrat symbol was born!

The Richest Man In All Of Asia Is Aggressively Preparing For Collapse:

April 18th, 2017 by

http://www.shtfplan.com/headline-news/the-richest-man-in-all-of-asia-is-aggressively-preparing-for-collapse-direct-exposure-to-gold-as-super-wealthy-focus-on-wealth-preservation_04162017

“Direct Exposure To Gold As Super Wealthy Focus On Wealth Preservation”

GOLD

By Mac Slavo

The world is awash in crisis with wars looming, economies crashing and revolutions brewing. Doomsday bunkers sales are soaring and individuals from coast to coast are getting ready for whatever tomorrow may bring. Moreover, even governments like China and Russia are preparing, having gone so far as to create their own exchange mechanism to trade directly with gold in the event of a global currency crisis or financial meltdown.

But it’s not just governments who have taken notice of the problems facing the globe. According to Gold Mining Chairman Amir Adnani and Sprott U.S. Holdings CEO Rick Rule, some of the biggest billionaire investors on the planet are actively seeking out precious metals like gold as wealth protection insurance amid the uncertainty of the current geo-political climate.

In a recent interview with SGT Report, Adnani explains that several super wealthy individuals with whom he works very closely, including mainland China’s biggest billionaire investor and the richest man in all of Asia Li Ka-shing, have a renewed and urgent interest in diversifying their assets into both, gold mining firms and the physical asset itself:

This individual’s net worth is about $35 billion… For the first time in a number of years of working with his team when it comes to investments in commodities that they believe were important to the strategic growth of China… for the first time they are looking for gold related investments.

The comment from the person heading this initiative for Li Ka-shing is very interesting… His right had man said to me ‘He’s not just looking for investing in gold mines… he literally wants to find more ways to take physical gold back to Hong Kong and have that exposure.’

This is the largest individual investor in mainland China and I tell you over the last few years of having worked with him on the energy side, this is the first time I have seen him so aggressively looking for gold related opportunities.

In the full interview, insiders Amir Adnani and Rick Rule share their experiences working with others large investors, current strategies and expectations of what’s to come:

(Watch at Youtube)

The reason for why these high net worth individuals are rapidly moving into gold related assets, notes Adnani, is that they are not necessarily all that concerned with the current price and how high it may go in the future, but rather, because precious metals are backed with thousands of years of evidence that they are the asset of last resort during crisis:

That’s one… the second one… we’re very fortunate at Gold Mining… one of the board members of our company who has been a founder of the company since day one is a Brazilian billionaire by the name of Mario Garnero…

When I look at the level of interest that his organization has in terms of wanting that direct exposure to gold… I talked to them about why they are looking at this…

They’re focused on one factor that we seldom think about… We’re so fixated on price of gold… what they’re focused on… what the super wealthy are focused on… what the billionaires are focused on… is the fact that gold plays that hedge in your portfolio… that’s it’s the insurance in the portfolio…

It may not necessarily be as critical to think whether it’s $1200 an ounce or $1300… we fixate so much on the price… and we forget that irrespective of what it’s trading at on any given day it’s meant to be an insurance policy… it’s meant to be protection of wealth and preservation of wealth…

It’s a great reminder when you look at the first trading day after Brexit… I remember looking at my own portoflio.. and looking at the market… and everything is red… the Dow is down over 500 points… the only thing up are gold stocks…

But while insurance and wealth preservation are the key motivating factor for the super wealthy, another billionaire, Sprott U.S. Holdings CEO Rick Rule, says that even a tiny boost in investor demand could drive prices to new highs from here as investors stampede into hard asset stocks and physical holdings as the current bull market gains steam:

Let me give you a startling statistic that tells you what an awakening might do… physical precious metals, certificated precious metals, and precious metals equities occupy about one-third of one percent of the savings and investment assets of the United States.

The corresponding number at the top of the last bull market.. real bull market in 1981… was 8%…

One third of 1% now… 8% at the top.

I’m not suggesting to you that gold and precious metals related investments will ever get back to 8% but I would suggest to you that they will, in this bull market, approach the three decade median, which was 1.5%.

If that occurred, you would see a more than four-fold increase in demand for precious metals and precious metals related equities… I think that could be reasonably dramatic.

I am not one of these doom and gloom guys who says that gold is going win the war against the U.S. dollar.

But if gold lost the war a little less badly… in other words, if gold and gold equities market shares got up to 1.5% of the investment savings matrix of the United States, that would represent a four-fold increase in demand.

The world is primed for a serious, potentially devastating collapse of life as we know it. That may come with war, economic collapse, or both simultaneously. What we know from history is that those who prepared ahead of time and understood the ramifications of such events were positioned to not only survive, but thrive.

The high net worth individuals who are moving into gold related assets see the writing on the wall, and they are positioning themselves now to ensure their wealth will be preserved.

We strongly encourage you to do the same.

TORT REFORM AND THE HEGELIAN DIALECTIC

April 17th, 2017 by

www.rebelmadman.com/?p=638

 There are a number of people who have tried for years to make the public understand this political trap/attack…how many listened & learned?

Here is another excellent chance to become informed and NOT give your inalienable rights away…again!!!

TORT REFORM AND THE HEGELIAN DIALECTIC

CHAPTER ONE

By Michael Gaddy

The synthetic solution to these conflicts can’t be introduced unless those being manipulated take a side which will advance the predetermined agenda.” Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel

Last Thursday evening as I watched and listened to a public forum in which five elected representatives of the people offered their views on the recently adjourned session of the legislature in the state of Arkansas, it dawned on me, especially in one particular instance, what I was indeed witnessing was a perfect example of the Hegelian Dialectic in full blossom when the subject of the meeting rolled around to Tort Reform.

Obviously, the legislature, in particular, the Senate, has determined that there is a problem that only the legislature could fix by proposing an amendment to the Constitution of the state of Arkansas. The question that must be answered is this: does this problem in fact exist or is it a synthetic problem as mentioned by Hegel above? In other words, where is the outcry from the people themselves that demands from the legislature a remedy to cure the alleged political disease?

While not one person in the assembly that night mentioned any specific reality that would require the amending of the Constitution, an Arkansas state Senator stated, “books have been written about this problem” although he too could not cite any specific case in which to support his allegation. One would think if there are so many instances of the problem existing that books have been written about it, he could have quoted at least one.

Absent any real public demand for a solution to the alleged problem there must be another motivating factor which is driving this particular legislation that, if approved, will diminish the individual and constitutional rights of the people themselves. If the people are not the driving force behind any issue, then, the only inescapable answer would be the issue is being driven by special interests and their money. One does not have to be a brain surgeon or a rocket scientist to comprehend the fact politicians profit in many ways when they promote the agenda of special interests instead of the rights of the people. The examples are prolific in number.

According to Hegel, the synthetic solution to an issue advocated by special interests and their political puppets cannot be advanced until the targeted group (individual voters) are convinced there is a problem that exists which requires the forfeiture of inalienable individual rights and the only way it can be solved is with further government intervention into the affairs of the people.

The preferred language of the special interest-inspired and motivated politician when it comes to the issue of Tort Reform is “frivolous lawsuit.” Yet, when challenged to produce just one such case, this proponent of an attack on the guarantees provided in the US Bill of Rights and the Arkansas Declaration of Rights could not produce an example. But, this legislator did become agitated when pressed to provide such an example and began to talk down to his constituent who posed the question. When a legislator, at any level, cannot provide a single example of a wrong which he/she claims exists and must be dealt with by surrendering constitutional rights, should we not all question if there is, in fact, a real problem?

Many in the past have pointed to the case of the elderly lady who spilled McDonald’s hot coffee on her lap and subsequently sued McDonalds when they refused requests to pay her medical bills. To coin an old phrase, anyone who is critical of this settlement and has become a victim of the propaganda and deceit of the media and assorted politicians really needs to hear the “rest of the story.” This can be found in the video presentation called “Hot Coffee.” The free trailer to this must watch video can be found here. The complete video will cost you $2.99. If you feel your inalienable rights are not worth 3 dollars and an hour of your time, you should not be voting.

As stated above the inflammatory keyword which political proponents of the relinquishing of our rights demanded by our founders and expressly declared in our Bills and Declaration of Rights is, “frivolous lawsuits.” They propose a synthetic solution to a problem of their own creation in which the power of the people, operating in their sovereign duty as a member of a jury, is to be relinquished to the legislative and judicial branches of government. What they dare not tell you is that solution already exists within the judicial branch of Arkansas known as “Rule 11,” which is stated thusly:

“(b) The Supreme Court or the Court of Appeals shall impose a sanction upon a party or attorney or both for

(l) taking or continuing a frivolous appeal or initiating a frivolous proceeding, …” (Emphasis added) Notice please the wording, “shall impose” not can or will. This indicates sanctions against those who file a frivolous lawsuit are mandatory and not subject to discretion.

So, if there already exists a legal remedy for the filing of a frivolous lawsuit, why then are legislators, lobbyists and special interests advocating for an amendment to the Constitution and Declaration of Rights which would limit the rights of the people? I am sure the answer to this is money, for nothing else makes any sense at all. The money lost would be by the people while the money gained would go to the big businesses (special interests) in the state. This would certainly explain why a synthetic problem has been presented to the people in order that a synthetic solution can be obtained which requires the masses be duped into voting away their inalienable rights.

Also at this public gathering on April 13 was a member of the Arkansas House who stated the following: “Tort Reform was passed previously by the legislature but it has been incrementally struck down by the Supreme Court.” So, to take his statement to the lowest level of understanding: Tort Reform was passed in previous legislation but was declared unconstitutional by the Supreme Court so we are bypassing the courts and trying again to convince the people to vote away their rights themselves, believing by doing so they are fixing a problem that doesn’t actually exist. Hegel lives!!

Both Thomas Jefferson and James Madison stated the people themselves are the final arbiters of what is and what is not constitutional and they are to exercise that power through their sovereign duty as jurors. What Tort Reform (SJR8) proposes in Arkansas is to take this sovereign duty away from the people and place it in the hands of the government. Never, ever, in the history of this world has the relinquishing of individual rights to the powers of government ever promoted the cause of Liberty and the sacred rights of man.

Again, to break this issue down to the most basic level and to understand how the Hegelian Dialectic is busy at work in Arkansas is relatively easy: Big business and their lobbyists seeking to avoid financial responsibility to those who depend on them for their health, safety and welfare, and pay dearly for it, having been duly reprimanded by previous jurors for their negligence in the care of others have sought a political remedy by promoting legislation which limits their financial liabilities in each case. To accomplish this goal, the people must be convinced that there is a problem (synthetic) which does not really exist. In fact, there is a remedy already in place for this completely concocted boogeyman. (Rule 11)

In this endeavor, the legislators who support this intrusion on the rights of the people they are elected to represent, must, by default, place the desires of big business and special interests above the rights of the people. They believe they can salve their collective conscience if they convince the people to do it to themselves. Such politicians will never truly pursue the interests of the people over the rights of special interests and should be treated accordingly come election day.

“All the worth which the human beings possesses, all the spiritual reality, he possesses only through the state…” ~ Hegel

Just When You Thought It Couldn’t Get Any Worse!

April 14th, 2017 by

http://www.paulstramer.net/2017/04/just-when-you-thought-it-couldnt-get.html

BlasphemyBy Anna Von Reitz

Did you get baptized in an incorporated church?

If so, you received a Baptismal Certificate — just like you received a Birth Certificate,

And just like the Birth Certificate, your Baptismal Certificate was monetized and sold to investors.

Read that as: your new soul— which was created the moment you rose up from the water of your baptism— is being bought and sold by the “church” corporation that baptized you and interpreted your baptism as a commercial contract,

Obviously, they had a different “Father, Son, and Holy Ghost” in mind than you did. Theirs was the Marduk, Satan, and Lucifer trinity.  They just didn’t bother to tell you that.  

So, here we are, it’s 2017 and your soul is literally being bought and sold by the bastards responsible for this.  And who are they?  

First and foremost, the Roman Curia of the Holy See and the Roman Pontiff. 

Secondly, all the dumb cluck church organizations that agreed to incorporate themselves as franchises of the United States in order to avoid taxes they never owed in the first place.  

It’s like having thieves and demons at both elbows, ready to catch crumbs and attach adhesion contracts every moment of every day, so that they can feed off your life energy more efficiently— and then justify their evil works by misrepresenting you and your intentions. 

Catholics—- your money and political strength is going to support the buying and selling of souls?  Really?  Are you aware of this profoundly dirty business going on under your noses?  

Lutherans— you, too?  You think that this is the reasonable cost of doing business, that you should profit from selling souls?  Fleecing the flock, instead of caring for it? 

Methodists?  Church of Christ?  Jehovah’s Witnesses?  Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints?  Pentecostals?  Baptists?  Episcopalians?  Anglicans?  ALL of you that incorporated your churches as franchises of the UNITED STATES and fell into the practice of issuing baptismal “certificates”?   

Can you imagine a greater betrayal of trust than this?  

I can’t. 

Folks, if you are not flabbergasted, you ought to be.  If nothing else wakes you up to the evil in our midst, this must.  Get on your feet and start marching. Start talking, too.   It’s not just your bodies and your homes and your businesses at risk, your immortal soul has been trespassed upon by these vermin, sold for profit and declared “dead”.  

We must destroy these corporations and the nest of vipers giving rise to them without further ado and without apology, by all means political and practical. There can be no tolerance for this abomination, now or ever.  

Tell your priests and ministers and pastors to pull the plug and cancel all applications and articles of incorporation related to your churches.  Cease these repugnant practices or hear the giant sucking sound of millions of betrayed and defrauded Christians shaking the dust off their sandals and finding a new and honest and unincorporated church to attend.

Exactly Why the Trump Administration Needs to Cooperate

Foreign Corporations

By Anna Von Reitz

Frankly, everyone hates the United States. A lot of people claim to hate “America” but what they are talking about is always the United States, instead. This is a misunderstanding that needs to be cleared up.
“America” and the “United States” are two completely different things.
They are foreign with respect to each other and always have been. America is the fifty republican states of the Union: Oregon, Idaho, Florida…. The United States/UNITED STATES is fifty-seven “States of States”— corporate franchises of foreign Territorial and Municipal corporations: State of Idaho and STATE OF IDAHO, for instance.

It’s the United States/UNITED STATES that has raped and burned and pillaged and polluted and rampaged all over the Earth. The clueless Americans have been duped into believing these foreign corporations were their own dear lawful government.

Now that they know that the thing is Washington, DC, is just a “government for hire” operation, and they perceive that they have been duped and used and abused and cheated and plundered and imposed upon by the same corporations that have been doing it to the rest of the world, the Americans have cause to hate the United States, too.

With the Americans on one side and the outraged rest of the world on the other, what’s the United States to do?

The perps have tried to move their base of operations to China, but that isn’t working out so well for them. Nobody who wants to gain weight eats a tapeworm.

These so-called “Federal Corporations” still have a lot of power, but it is all power they either stole or borrowed or defrauded from the American states and people that they have claimed to represent and serve. Without the Americans backing them, they dwindle down to nothing but wind. Even Puerto Rico won’t try to find the best part of them.

This, politically, and a hopelessly corrupt government bookkeeping system, is what President Donald J. Trump is faced with.

Anyone looking to him to help them drain their local swamps will be sadly disappointed. Instead, he needs our help to drain his swamp in Washington, DC.

And that is why he needs to cooperate fully with the restoration of the American land jurisdiction states and expedite the return of Americans to their native political status and encourage the restoration of the American Common Law courts and accept the use of our asset-backed monetary system— because without our help and support, the so-called Federal Government doesn’t have a prayer.

The Fifty States Claim Update + FBI Informers, the Bundys, and Watering Horses

April 11th, 2017 by

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

POLITICAL IGNORANCEBy Anna Von Reitz

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

FBI Informers, the Bundys, and Watering Horses

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

POLITICAL IGNORANCE

By Anna Von Reitz

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

April 10th, 2017 by

http://www.paulstramer.net/2017/04/article-1-section-8-clause-17-reply-to.html

CONFUSSION

By Anna Von Reitz

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Though it is our right and duty to do so. 

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

ACTION

By Anna Von Reitz

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

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

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

Repeat as many times as necessary.    

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

Repeat as many times as necessary.  

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

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

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

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

The counties then form your lawful land jurisdiction state.  

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

 

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

Why Hasn’t Citigroups Banking Charter Been Yanked?

April 8th, 2017 by

http://www.wallstreetonparade.com./

BANKING CORRUPTIONBy Pam and Russ Martens:

Citigroup was back in the news again last Tuesday when the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) reported that its banking unit, Citibank, was among the three banks with the highest average monthly complaints filed against it alleging credit card abuses. (The other two banks were Capital One and JPMorgan Chase.)

This is the tip of the iceberg when it comes to Citigroup and its haloed Citibank.

On May 20, 2015, Citigroup’s banking division pleaded guilty to a criminal felony charge for foreign currency rigging following a decade of serial charges against the global behemoth. (See rap sheet below.) Instead of putting this incorrigible recidivist out of business, the Federal government has continued to allow its shady proclivities to be perpetuated against an unsuspecting public.

The U.S. central bank, the Federal Reserve, which incompetently oversees Citigroup as it takes on massive derivative risk and continues to fleece the public, saw fit to secretly funnel $2 trillion of loans into Citigroup’s collapsing carcass from 2007 to at least 2010 at almost zero interest rates. During that period, Citigroup was allowed to continue to charge double-digit interest rates on its credit cards and put struggling homeowners out on the street from its tricked-up mortgages. The $2 trillion in secret loans came on top of the publicly announced $45 billion in equity infusions and more than $300 billion in asset guarantees by the Federal government to keep this ethically-challenged institution alive.

Why would the Federal government want to bail out such a recidivist lawbreaker instead of simply putting it out of business? Citigroup is one of those too-big-to-fail, too-big-to-jail and too-interconnected-to-fathom financial goblins that continue to threaten the U.S. financial landscape today.

The CFPB’s report last week brought to mind a Harper’s article by Andrew Cockburn in April 2015. Cockburn had traced the history of how Sandy Weill had parlayed Commercial Credit through a series of mergers that, thanks to the repeal of the Glass-Steagall Act by President Clinton & Company in 1999, had culminated in the too-big-to-fail Citigroup.

With the blessing of its regulators, including the Federal Reserve, Citigroup was allowed to replicate the precise banking model which had brought on the 1929 crash and Great Depression: it was allowed to hold savings deposits while making wild speculations on Wall Street and selling bogus stocks to the hapless public.

While today Bill Dudley, President of the Federal Reserve Bank of New York, incessantly fingers his worry beads and ponders what it will take to change the jaded culture of Wall Street mega banks, Cockburn quickly drilled down to the problem: Citigroup grew out of a loan sharking operation that permeates its culture.

Cockburn writes:

“Weill had recently been eased out from Shearson Lehman/American Express [in 1985], a financial conglomerate he had helped to build. Eager to get back in the game, he bought a Baltimore firm called Commercial Credit. In the view of Weill and his protégé, Jamie Dimon [now CEO at JPMorgan Chase], their new acquisition was in the beneficent business of supplying ‘consumer finance’ to ‘Main Street America.’ Their office receptionist, Alison Falls, thought otherwise. Overhearing their conversation at work one day, she called out, ‘Hey, guys, this is the loan-sharking business. Consumer finance is just a nice way to describe it.’

“Falls had it right. Commercial Credit made loans to poor people at predatory interest rates. Strapped to pay off their loans, borrowers were encouraged to refinance, with added fees each time. Gail Kubiniec, who was then an assistant sales manager at the company’s branch office in Tonawanda, New York, remembers that the basic aim was to lend money to ‘people uneducated about credit. You could take a five-hundred-dollar loan and pack it with extra items like life insurance—that was very lucrative. Then you could roll it over with more extra items, then reroll the new loan, and the borrower would go on paying and paying and paying.’ ”

Cockburn includes an excerpt from an affidavit that Kubiniec had filed with the Federal Trade Commission in 2001 about the practices of Commercial Credit, which had changed its name to CitiFinancial:

“I and other employees would often determine how much insurance could be sold to a borrower based on the borrower’s occupation, race, age, and education level. If someone appeared uneducated, inarticulate, was a minority, or was particularly old or young, I would try to include all the coverages CitiFinancial offered. The more gullible the consumer appeared, the more coverages I would try to include in the loan.”

Wall Street On Parade took a look at the CFPB’s consumer complaint database to peruse the tens of thousands of complaints that have been filed against Citigroup and its banking unit, Citibank, since the CFPB began operations in 2011. The complaints range from debt collection practices to credit card abuses to student loan gouging to mortgage and foreclosure abuse.

Given the serial charges and settlements by Citigroup as listed below, one has to seriously wonder if fraud has not only become a business model at Wall Street banks (as Senator Bernie Sanders of Vermont has stated) but an accepted business model by Wall Street’s regulators and the U.S. Justice Department.

————-

The following is just a sampling of charges brought against Citigroup and/or its various units since December 2008:

December 11, 2008: SEC forces Citigroup and UBS to buy back $30 billion in auction rate securities that were improperly sold to investors through misleading information.

February 11, 2009: Citigroup agrees to settle lawsuit brought by WorldCom investors for $2.65 billion.

July 29, 2010: SEC settles with Citigroup for $75 million over its misleading statements to investors that it had reduced its exposure to subprime mortgages to $13 billion when in fact the exposure was over $50 billion.

October 19, 2011: SEC agrees to settle with Citigroup for $285 million over claims it misled investors in a $1 billion financial product.  Citigroup had selected approximately half the assets and was betting they would decline in value.

February 9, 2012: Citigroup agrees to pay $2.2 billion as its portion of the nationwide settlement of bank foreclosure fraud.

August 29, 2012: Citigroup agrees to settle a class action lawsuit for $590 million over claims it withheld from shareholders’ knowledge that it had far greater exposure to subprime debt than it was reporting.

July 1, 2013: Citigroup agrees to pay Fannie Mae $968 million for selling it toxic mortgage loans.

September 25, 2013: Citigroup agrees to pay Freddie Mac $395 million to settle claims it sold it toxic mortgages.

December 4, 2013: Citigroup admits to participating in the Yen Libor financial derivatives cartel to the European Commission and accepts a fine of $95 million.

July 14, 2014: The U.S. Department of Justice announces a $7 billion settlement with Citigroup for selling toxic mortgages to investors. Attorney General Eric Holder called the bank’s conduct “egregious,” adding, “As a result of their assurances that toxic financial products were sound, Citigroup was able to expand its market share and increase profits.”

November 2014: Citigroup pays more than $1 billion to settle civil allegations with regulators that it manipulated foreign currency markets. Other global banks settled at the same time.

May 20, 2015: Citicorp, a unit of Citigroup becomes an admitted felon by pleading guilty to a felony charge in the matter of rigging foreign currency trading, paying a fine of $925 million to the Justice Department and $342 million to the Federal Reserve for a total of $1.267 billion. The prior November it paid U.S. and U.K. regulators an additional $1.02 billion.

May 25, 2016: Citigroup agrees to pay $425 million to resolve claims brought by the Commodity Futures Trading Commission that it had rigged interest-rate benchmarks, including ISDAfix, from 2007 to 2012.

July 12, 2016: The Securities and Exchange Commission fined Citigroup Global Markets Inc. $7 million for failure to provide accurate trading records over a period of 15 years. According to the SEC: “CGMI failed to produce records for 26,810 securities transactions comprising over 291 million shares of stock and options in response to 2,382 EBS requests made by Commission staff, between May 1999 and April 2014, due to an error in the computer code for CGMI’s EBS response software. Despite discovering the error in late April 2014, CGMI did not report the issue to Commission staff or take steps to produce the omitted data until nine months later on January 27, 2015. CGMI’s failure to discover the coding error and to produce the missing data for many years potentially impacted numerous Commission investigations.”

Richard Bowen Is Skeptical of Citigroup’s Culture Makeover: Here’s Why

BANKING CORRUPTION

Richard Bowen, Testifying Before the Financial Crisis Inquiry Commission

Editor’s Note: Richard Bowen is the former Citigroup Senior Vice President who repeatedly alerted his superiors in writing that potential mortgage fraud was taking place in his division. At one point, Bowen emailed a detailed description of the problem to top senior management, including Robert Rubin, the former U.S. Treasury Secretary and then Chairman of the Executive Committee at Citigroup. Bowen’s reward for elevating serious ethical issues up the chain of command was to be relieved of most of his duties and told not to come to the office. Bowen testified before the Financial Crisis Inquiry Commission in 2010. In 2011, Bowen had the courage to pull back the curtain on Citigroup’s moral code on the CBS program 60 Minutes. Bowen is today a Professor of Accounting at the University of Texas at Dallas and speaks widely on the ethical breakdowns that led to the 2008 Wall Street financial collapse. Professor Bowen’s analysis of Citigroup’s latest foray into changing its ethical culture appears below.

Who’s Trying Now to Save Citigroup’s Soul? 

By Richard Bowen: March 27, 2017 

The headline in last Saturday’s Wall Street Journal captured my immediate attention. The Banker-Turned-Seminarian Trying to Save Citigroup’s Soul… What??

Supposedly Citigroup is taking a “new” approach to the cultural and other issues they have had for years and have hired Dr. David Miller, a Princeton University professor, theologian and former banker to be their “on call ethicist.”  Dr.  Miller heads the University’s Faith & Work Initiative and has worked with Citi intermittently over the last three years. He says, “You need banking, just like you need pharmaceuticals.”

His role, to provide “advice and input to senior management.” This includes CEO Michael Corbat who recently raised an idea that came from Dr. Miller. Mr. Corbat said, when faced with an uncertain situation, “ask the four M’s: What would your mother, your mentor, the media and—if you’re inclined—your maker think?” The problem, he adds, isn’t the bad apples. Rather, it is how easy it is for good employees to justify bad decisions when they face gray-zone questions.

And Citi has had more than its share of gray zone areas.  Citigroup has had numerous issues and has earned a reputation for ethical problems before and after the financial crisis. Dr. Miller was brought in by Mr. Corbat who was surprised when the company’s employee surveys showed some workers weren’t comfortable escalating concerns about possible wrongdoing.

He was also disturbed by the banking industry’s image problem overall. “If you look today at what the poll numbers say, what the general population says, there is distrust of banks,” Mr. Corbat said in an interview.

The article goes on to say, “Citigroup is embracing Dr. Miller’s idea (influenced by Plato and Aristotle) of three lenses to apply in ethical decision-making, an approach: Is it right, good and fitting? Citigroup executives have added:  Is it in our clients’ interest, does it create economic value, and is it systemically responsible?”

The bank is sharing these ideas with employees worldwide, working them into its ethics and training manuals and mission statement and posting it on the wall of its Manhattan headquarters lobby.

But wait! This is not a “new” idea.

I was at Citi, when in 2003 they were fined $1.5 billion for “false and misleading research reports;” and in 2004 when they were hit with $5 billion in fines and settlements associated with Enron and WorldCom. These and other scandals in Japan Private Banking and the European bond market led to the Federal Reserve (in 2005) to publicly announce that they would not approve any major Citigroup mergers and acquisitions, until the company resolved their issues.

As a result of all this and more, Citi vowed that these issues would not happen again. And in March 2005, then CEO Chuck Prince announced his strategy to transform the financial giant and to provide a new direction for the future, called the “Five Point Ethics Plan” to: improve training, enhance focus on talent and development, balance performance appraisals and compensation, improve communications, and strengthen controls. A comprehensive ethics policy was implemented requiring annual training by all employees. Employees could be fired if they did not follow the new ethics plan.

And Mr. Prince announced, with great fanfare, the hiring of Lewis B. Kaden, a former professor and director of Columbia University’s Center for Law and Economic Studies and moderator of PBS’s popular Ethics in America TV series, which earned a Peabody Award. Mr. Kaden was named Vice Chairman and was over ethics and other areas. In the trenches we called him the Ethics Czar.

Well despite desperation, a new ethics policy, training and fear, the Five Point Ethics Plan didn’t work. By now you know by heart of their subsequent mortgage fraud and what led to my and Sherry Hunt’s blowing the whistle on Citi. And following that there were the LIBOR and FOREX trading scandals.

To this day, Citi still has ethics issues as witness one of the latest, their being investigated for hiring practices  that could violate foreign bribery laws.

We can “talk” culture all day long, mandate it, instill fear  re firing,  but if leadership is not an example and role model for ethical behavior… well it’s not going to happen! If a company wants to promote and assure ethical standards are followed then transparency, trust and developing an ethical culture based on guiding principles are critical.

In a previous post I quoted Ms.Yves Smith, commenting on an article “Can Philosophy Stop Bankers From Stealing?” by Lynn Parramore, a senior research analyst at the Institute for New Economic Thinking.  Ms. Parramore states, “Pernicious cultural norms inside American banks and regulatory agencies have crowded out fundamental moral principles…”

Ms. Parramore quotes Ed Kane, Professor of Finance at Brown College, “Ed Kane believes it’s vital to discuss moral questions, in plain English, without abstractions. Following his own advice, he is blunt in characterizing some of the behavior in the banking industry in recent years: “Theft is a forced taking of other people’s resources,” he says. ‘That’s what’s going on here.” Kane urges a deep inquiry into our culture to understand why bankers so commonly get away with crimes in the United States.”

Evidence shows Citi did not change its culture. It did not follow its own ethics plan. It may presently have a 60 page ethics policy, however, that has proved to not be enough. Posting it does not change behavior.

Who knows, perhaps this time around it may work. Dr. Miller believes banks can change. “To make the assumption that an organization cannot be more ethical than it was is to give up before you start… It is not naive. It is a realistic and necessary goal.”

Am I skeptical? Heck yes.  Let’s see if Citigroup has the moral fortitude to indeed finally make good culture changes happen. For the sake of our country, I wish Dr. Miller much success.

We’re All Minorities Now

By Pam Martens and Russ Martens: March 21, 2017

The one percent now effectively owns Washington: the making of our laws, the writing of Executive Orders, the running of Federal agencies with the power to put crooks among the one percent in prison – or not, and they are now the overseers of gutting Federal programs that benefit the 99 percent.

One thought comes to mind about this state of affairs. The abolitionist and writer, Frederick Douglass, once said:

“Where justice is denied, where poverty is enforced, where ignorance prevails, and where any one class is made to feel that society is an organized conspiracy to oppress, rob and degrade them, neither persons nor property will be safe.”

The majority of Americans, whether they are yet aware or not, now walks in the shoes of Frederick Douglass. We’re all minorities now. The billionaires and their lackeys rule.

How did a society that fought a brutal and bloody revolution to throw off the yoke of one percent rule end up where we find ourselves today?

After a decade of thinking and researching and writing about little else, we believe the major causes are as follows: a highly consolidated corporate media that failed to tackle these issues with regularity and force; a timid Internal Revenue Service that was afraid to take on the billionaire class for setting up faux citizen front groups that drowned out the voice and views of real citizens; and, of course, an abjectly corrupt system of billionaire financing of political campaigns.

Below is a small sampling of articles from our archives which should have warned us that we were rapidly devolving as a democracy and that a full scale plutocracy was in our future.
