Their agenda may be on the rocks in the United States at the moment, but that doesn’t mean that the globalists are giving up. In fact, a major push toward a cashless society is being made in the European Union right now. Last May we learned that the 500 euro note is being completely eliminated, and just a few weeks ago the European Commission released a new “Action Plan” which instructs member states to explore “potential upper limits to cash payments”. In the name of “fighting terrorism”, this “Action Plan” discusses the benefits of “prohibitions for cash payments above a specific threshold” and it says that those prohibitions should include “virtual currencies (such as BitCoin) and prepaid instruments (such as pre-paid credit cards) when they are used anonymously.”
This new document does not mention what an appropriate threshold would be for member states, but we do know that Spain already bans certain cash transactions above 2,500 euros, and Italy and France already ban cash transactions above 1,000 euros.
This is a perfect way to transition to a cashless society without creating too much of an uproar. By setting a maximum legal level for cash transactions and slowly lowering it, in effect you can slowly but surely phase cash out without people understanding what is happening.
And there are many places in Europe where it is very difficult to even use cash at this point. In Sweden, many banks no longer take or give out cash, and approximately 95 percent of all retail transactions are entirely cashless. So even though Sweden has not officially banned cash, using cash is no longer practical in most situations. In fact, many tourists are shocked to find out that they cannot even pay bus fare with cash.
So most of Europe is already moving in this direction, and now this new Action Plan is intended to accelerate the transition toward a cashless society. The public is being told that these measures are being taken to fight money laundering and terrorism, but of course that is only a small part of the truth. The following comes from the Anti-Media…
The European Action Plan doesn’t mention a specific dollar amount for restrictions, but as expected, their reasoning for the move is to thwart money laundering and the financing of terrorism. Border checks between countries have already been bolstered to help implement these new standards on hard assets. Although these end goals are plausible, there are other clear motivations for governments to target paper money that aren’t as noble.
In a truly cashless society, governments would be able to track where everybody is and what everybody is doing all the time. And in order to have access to the cashless system, people would have to comply with whatever requirements governments wanted to impose on their helpless populations. The potential for tyranny that this would create would be off the charts, but very few people seem greatly alarmed by the move toward a cashless system all over the globe.
Even in the United States there are calls for a cashless system. For example, the former chief economist for the IMF wrote an article for the Wall Street Journal not too long ago in which he recommended the elimination of the $100 bill…
“There is little debate among law-enforcement agencies that paper currency, especially large notes such as the U.S. $100 bill, facilitates crime: racketeering, extortion, money laundering, drug and human trafficking, the corruption of public officials, not to mention terrorism. There are substitutes for cash—cryptocurrencies, uncut diamonds, gold coins, prepaid cards—but for many kinds of criminal transactions, cash is still king. It delivers absolute anonymity, portability, liquidity and near-universal acceptance.”
Over in Asia restrictions are being put on cash as well. Legendary investor Jim Rogers commented on what is currently happening in India during one recent podcast…
The time will come when you won’t be able to buy a cup of coffee without being traced, warns investment guru Jim Rogers. To control people, governments will increasingly seek to hunt down cash spending, he adds.
“Governments are always looking out for themselves first, and it’s the same old thing that has been going on for hundreds of years. The Indians recently did the same thing. They withdrew 86 percent of the currency in circulation, and they have now made it illegal to spend more than, I think it’s about $4,000 in any cash transaction. In France you cannot use more than, I think it’s a €1,000,” said Rogers in an interview with MacroVoices Podcast.
The reason why this is taking place all over the planet is because this is a global agenda.
The globalists ultimately plan to completely eliminate cash, and this will give them an unprecedented level of control over humanity.
One thing that many fear may someday be implemented is some form of microchip identification system. In order to access the cashless grid, you would need your “ID chip” so that the system could positively identify you, but of course there are millions of people around the world that do not intend to get chipped under any circumstances.
In the old days, you would be labeled a “conspiracy theorist” just for suggesting that they may try to chip all of us one day, but in 2017 things have completely changed.
Just look at what is happening in Nevada. A bill has been introduced in the state senate that would outlaw the “forced microchipping of people”…
State Sen. Becky Harris said a bill to prohibit forced microchipping of people is not as far-fetched as it might seem, because it happens in some places around the world.
Senate Bill 109 would make it a Class C felony to require someone to be implanted with a radio frequency identifier, such as microchips placed in pets.
The idea for the bill came from a constituent, the Las Vegas Republican said.
If that sounds very strange to you, then you may not know that companies all around the globe are already starting to explore this type of technology. For instance, a company in Belgium called NewFusion has actually begun to microchip their employees…
In a move that could be lifted straight from science fiction, workers at a Belgian marketing firm are being offered the chance to have microchips implanted in their bodies.
The chips contain personal information and provide access to the company’s IT systems and headquarters, replacing existing ID cards.
The controversial devices raise questions about personal security and safety, including whether they may allow the movements of people with implants to be tracked.
Technology like this often starts off being “voluntary”, but then after enough people willingly accept it the transition to “mandatory” is not too difficult.
We live at one of the most critical moments in all of human history, and the globalists are certainly not going to lay down and die just because Donald Trump won the election.
The U.S. represents less than five percent of the population of the planet, and in most of the world the agenda of the globalists is on track and is rapidly advancing.
The globalists want a unified one world economy, a unified one world religion and a unified one world government. The election of Donald Trump was a blow to the globalists, but it has also made them more dangerous, more ruthless and more determined than ever before.
And in case you think that using the term “globalists” is a bit strange, the truth is that even the New York Times is using it to describe the global elite and their global agenda.
We are in a life or death battle for the future of our society, and the globalists are never going to give up until they get what they want. So now is not a time for complacency, because the very future of our country is at stake.
There is no doubt in my mind that humanity has already been surreptitiously adjusted to accept annihilation. How else can one explain the nearly total lack of outrage? The apparent lack of interest in what the globalist intend to do to the whole planet is mind numbing. By any sense of concern for their future, humanity as a whole should be clamoring for their heads. Trump should be assembling a military strike on every globalist wherever they are. It’s not like there is no proof what they have done and their goals, so why is the whole damn world sitting on their ass?

JUSTINIAN DECEPTION HIDDEN FOREIGN TEXT KNOWN AS DOG LATIN)
Introduction by Anna Von Reitz:
Many years ago I started wondering about the all capital letters names employed by the military. I noticed that all names in the military were written in all capitals: LIEUTENANT RODNEY KNOX, for example, as were all the stenciled words plastered on packing crates and vehicles belonging to the US ARMY. I even tasked my poor Father about it, and he mumbled, “When you are in the military, you are a slave, and all that you have as property does not belong to you.”
This cryptic reply made no particular sense to me, nor did the idea that those putting their lives at risk to defend us would suffer the status of slaves? He was busy and the sun was hot and the road before us was dusty from the wheels of the endless military convoy passing by on the old US HIGHWAY 12. I noted the answer and let it slip into the category of “things you will understand when you are older”—where it remained until my twenties, when I began seeing my name written in all capital letters on Federal Student Loan paperwork.
I eventually tracked this odd style of name back to Ancient Rome and Roman Civil Law. I even wrote a studious Memorandum of Law about the use of peculiar naming conventions in the Roman Civil Law going back to 200 B.C.
I discovered that noble Romans used names written in all small case letters: flavius gallus aurelius, while indentured servants used names in Upper and Lower Case: Flavius Gallus Aurelius—-and just as my Father said, slaves used names in all capitals: FLAVIUS GALLUS AURELIUS.
This did not bode well for whatever poor creature might be named ANNA MARIA RIEZINGER nor did it adequately explain how or why or by whom my given name would be so abused on government paperwork. I never volunteered to join the Army.
I knew that names written in all capital letters were “slave names” and that it was not proper Latin, but as to what it was? Well, I combed dutifully through dictionaries and style guides and the Government Printing Office publications but the entire net of this effort was to define what the NAME was not—– not proper English, not used officially, not proper Latin, not, not, not…. but precious little came forward to enlighten me any further on the topic of what it was being used for, or who or what was mandating its use?
The answer— that it was being used by private mostly foreign-owned governmental services corporations for the purpose of defrauding and mischaracterizing me for their own profit — is not the kind of thing that these organizations nor their employees would trumpet from the rooftops, is it?
The Secret of Glossa–the use of Dog Latin embedded in English documents– has finally come to full and glorious light thanks to the efforts of a team of Australian researchers who have delved into this vicious fraud and breach of trust that has been perpetuated against humanity for many generations.
Please read the information carefully and grasp the immensity and longevity of the enslavement and abuse that has been exercised against innocent people, Catholic and non-Catholic alike, by the Roman Pontiffs and their bill collectors, the members of the Bar Associations worldwide.
A name written in Dog Latin, for example, JOHN MARK DOE, is the equivalent of a siphon used by vampires to quietly, sneakily, with little risk to themselves—-suck away your life’s blood and energy for their own benefit.
In itself, the mischaracterized name is a tool, lifeless and inert— like a siphon, a door handle, a rope, or a poppet— harmless until and unless it is used for the purpose of committing personage against you and providing access to your assets, including the value of your labor, your land, your businesses, and your very bodies.
The use of these false foreign names, embedded in any document written in English, is prima facie evidence of a crime.
This fundamental crime of personage must finally come to a halt, must be recognized for what it is and brought to an ignominious end. The fruit of many years of research has now come into your hands, for you to use in your own defense and the defense of others— all thanks to men who live half a world away, but whose dream and need for freedom is the same as that that lives in every human breast.
I understand that there will be a complete set of DVD’s available in the near future detailing the full extent of the research and the experience and thoughts of the researchers. Both to support their work and to undergird your own knowledge, I heartily recommend that everyone secure a copy for their own families and communities and share the information as widely as possible.
JUSTINIAN-DECEPTION: (HIDDEN-FOREIGN-TEXT-KNOWN-AS-DOG-LATIN) The Mother of all Deceptions: The Concept of Modern Day Slavery:
By: Romley Stewart.
I don’t believe I have ever read anything as powerful as this, and pledge my future to understanding it as much as my intellect will allow. I grieve thinking of how few will read this entire article, and continue stumbling in the darkness of tyranny. Please wake up folks and give our creator a chance to heal your soul.
And do not forget to pray for this gifted author and his family.
Mr. Romley Stewart.

The US is by far the biggest economy in the world. Its financial markets — be it equity, bonds or derivatives markets — are the largest and most liquid. The Greenback is the most important transaction currency. Many currencies in the world — be it the euro, the Chinese renminbi, the British pound or the Swiss franc — have actually been built upon the US dollar.
The world is effectively on a US-dollar-standard, and the US Federal Reserve (Fed) has risen to the unofficial status of the world’s central bank. The rise of the Greenback has to a large extent been propelled by international banking, which has basically “dollarized” in terms of its lending and issuing activities.
The Fed Sets Global Policy
The Fed’s policy not only determines credit and liquidity conditions in the US, but does so in many financial markets around the world as well. For instance, movements of long-term US interest rates regularly have effects on credit and equity markets in, say, Europe and Asia. The Fed’s actions are the blueprint for monetary policymaking in many countries around the world.
The graph shows the Fed’s supply of newly created US dollar liquidity sent to other central banks around the world. It also shows the so-called “euro cross currency basis swap,” which can be interpreted as a “stress indicator”: If it drops into negative territory, it means that euro banks find it increasingly difficult to obtain US dollar credit in the free market place. The Fed’s injection of new US dollar balances into the financial system has helped to reduce the euro currency basis swap. Since late 2016, however, it has started to venture again into negative territory — potentially signaling that euro banks are again heading for trouble.
The financial and economic crisis 2008/2009 has increased further the dependency of the world’s financial system on the US dollar. As early as December 2008, the Fed provided so called “liquidity swap agreements.” Under the latter the Fed is prepared to lend newly created US dollars to other central banks around the globe.
For instance, the European Central Bank (ECB) can obtain US dollars from the Fed and lend the funds on to shaky domestic banks in need for US dollar funding. In other words: Liquidity swap agreements can easily replace foreign currency funding in the market place by foreign currency credit provided by central banks.
Meanwhile, all major central banks around the world — the European Central Bank, the Bank of Japan, the Chinese central bank, the Bank of England, and the Swiss National Bank — have joined the liquidity swap agreement club. They also have agreed to provide their own currencies to all other central banks — in actually unlimited amounts if needed.
It is no wonder, therefore, that credit default concerns in financial markets have declined substantially. Investors feel assured that big banks won’t default on their foreign currency liabilities — as such a credit event is considered politically undesirable, and central banks can simply avoid it by printing up new money.
Moving Toward a Worldwide Central Bank
The close cooperation and coordination among central banks under the Fed’s tutelage amounts to an international cartelization of central banking — paving the way toward a single world monetary policy run by a yet to be determined single world central bank. Such a development is, or course, in the very interest of those in favor of establishing a single world government.
How will President Donald J. Trump and his administration deal with the cartelization in central banking? Mr. Trump doesn’t seem to be an “internationalist,” seeking to build a new world order by political and military means. If that is so, he will sooner or later have to come to grips with the Fed’s policies — most notably with its liquidity swap agreements.
The Fed’s policy has made the world’s financial system addicted to ever greater amounts of US dollars, easily accessible and provided at fairly low interest rates. From this the US banks benefit greatly, while average Americans bear the brunt: they pay the price in terms of, for instance, boom and bust and an erosion of the purchasing power of the US dollar.
What Trump Should Do
If the Trump administration really wishes to live up to its campaign promise “Make America great again,” there is no way of getting around addressing Fed policy. A first step in that direction is the idea to subject the US central bank to public scrutiny (“Audit the Fed”), bringing to public attention the scope of the Fed’s interventions into the world’s banking system.
Of course, the liquidity swap agreements in particular can be expected to be heavily defended by central bankers, bank representatives, big business lobbyists, and mainstream economists as being indispensable for financial system stability. And for sure, a sudden withdrawal from this practice would almost certainly deal a heavy blow to financial markets.
If push comes to shove, it could even make the worldwide credit pyramid, built on fiat money, come crashing down. However, the really important argument in this context is that the continuation of the practice of central bank cartelization will eventually result in a despotic regime: and that is a single world fiat currency regime.
Of course, change for the better doesn’t come from politics. It comes from better ideas. For it is ideas that determine human action. Whatever these ideas are and wherever they come from: They make humans act. For this reason the great Austrian economist Ludwig von Mises (1881 – 1973) advocates the idea of the “sound money principle”:
The sound-money principle has two aspects. It is affirmative in approving the market’s choice of a commonly used medium of exchange. It is negative in obstructing the government’s propensity to meddle with the currency system.
Mises also explains convincingly the importance of the sound money principle for each and every one of us:
It is impossible to grasp the meaning of the idea of sound money if one does not realize that it was devised as an instrument for the protection of civil liberties against despotic inroads on the part of governments. Ideologically it belongs in the same class with political constitutions and bills of right.
Mises’s sound money principle calls for ending central banking once and for all and opening up a free market in money. Having brought to a halt political globalism for now, the new US administration has now also a once in a lifetime chance to make the world great again — simply by ending the state’s monopoly of money production.
If the US would move in that direction — ending legal tender laws and giving the freedom to the American people to use, say, gold, silver, or bitcoin as their preferred media of exchange — the rest of the world would most likely have to follow the example. That said, Mr. Trump could really make a real change, simply by embracing Mises’s sound money principle.

And banks feel that they currently have TOO MUCH capital…
By Simon Black
In a scathing editorial published in the Wall Street Journal today, the president of the Federal Reserve Bank of Minneapolis, Neel Kashkari, blasted US banks, saying that they still lacked sufficient capital to withstand a major crisis.
Kashkari makes a great analogy.
When you’re applying for a mortgage or business loan, sensible banks are supposed to demand a 20% down payment from their borrowers.
If you want to buy a $500,000 home, a conservative bank will loan creditworthy borrowers $400,000. The borrower must be able to scratch together a $100,000 down payment.
But when banks make investments and buy assets, they aren’t required to do the same thing.
Remember that when you deposit money at a bank, you’re essentially loaning them your savings.
As a bank depositor, you’re the lender. The bank is the borrower.
Banks pool together their deposits and make various loans and investments.
They buy government bonds, financial commercial trade, and fund real estate purchases.
Some of their investment decisions make sense. Others are completely idiotic, as we saw in the 2008 financial meltdown.
But the larger point is that banks don’t use their own money to make these investments. They use other people’s money. Your money.
A bank’s investment portfolio is almost entirely funded with its customers’ savings. Very little of the bank’s own money is at risk.
You can see the stark contrast here.
If you as an individual want to borrow money to invest in something, you’re obliged to put down 20%, perhaps even much more depending on the asset.
Your down payment provides a substantial cushion for the bank; if you stop paying the loan, the value of the property could decline 20% before the bank loses any money.
But if a bank wants to make an investment, they typically don’t have to put down a single penny.
The bank’s lenders, i.e. its depositors, put up all the money for the investment.
If the investment does well, the bank keeps all the profits.
But if the investment does poorly, the bank hasn’t risked any of its own money.
The bank’s lenders (i.e. the depositors) are taking on all the risk.
This seems pretty one-sided, especially considering that in exchange for assuming all the risk of a bank’s investment decisions, you are rewarded with a miniscule interest rate that fails to keep up with inflation.
(After which the government taxes you on the interest that you receive.)
It hardly seems worth it.
Back in 2008-2009, the entire financial system was on the brink of collapse because banks had been making wild bets without having sufficient capital.
In other words, the banks hadn’t made a sufficient “down payment” on the toxic investments they had purchased.
All those assets and idiotic loans were made almost exclusively with their customers’ savings.
Lehman Brothers, a now-defunct investment bank, infamously had about 3% capital at the time of its collapse, meaning that Lehman used just 3% of its own money to buy toxic assets.
Eventually the values of those toxic assets collapsed.
And not only was the bank wiped out, but investors who had loaned the bank money took a giant loss.
This happened across the entire financial system because banks had made idiotic investment decisions and failed to maintain sufficient capital to absorb the losses.
Nearly a decade later, Kashkari says that banks still aren’t sufficiently capitalized.
(He also points out that banks today are obsessed with pointless documentation and seem “unable to exercise judgment or use common sense.”)
The banks themselves obviously don’t agree.
As Kashkari states, banks feel that they currently have TOO MUCH capital.
Bizarre. They’re basically saying that they want to be LESS safe, like a stunt pilot complaining that his helmet is too sturdy.
I’ve written about this many times– the decision for where to hold your savings matters. It’s important.
In addition to solvency and liquidity concerns, there are a multitude of other issues, like routine violations of the public trust, collusion to fix interest and exchange rates, manipulation of asset prices, and all-out fraud.
(I personally got so fed up with our deceitful financial system that I started my own bank in 2015 to handle my companies’ financial transactions. More on that another time…)
Yet despite these obvious risks, most people simply assume away the safety of their bank.
They’ll spend more time thinking about what to watch on Netflix than which bank is the most responsible custodian of their life’s savings.
There are countless ways to figure this out, but here’s a short-cut: much much “capital” or “equity” does the bank have as a percentage of its total assets?
These are easy numbers to find. Just Google “XYZ bank balance sheet”.
Look at the bottom where it says “capital” or “equity”. That’s your numerator.
Then look above that number to find total assets. That’s your denominator.
Divide the two. The higher the percentage, the safer the bank.
Kashkari thinks the answer should be at least 20%, especially among mega-banks in the US.

Regarding the proper role of education, the following Ayn Rand quote explains:
“The only purpose of education is to teach a student how to live his life—by developing his mind and equipping him to deal with reality. The training he needs is theoretical, i.e., conceptual. He has to be taught to think, to understand, to integrate, to prove. He has to be taught the essentials of the knowledge discovered in the past—and he has to be equipped to acquire further knowledge by his own effort.”
That means the child must start from the building blocks of logic which dictate the learning of any subject must require starting from the essential basic conceptual building blocks, then connecting them in logical order to build the pyramid of understanding that subject matter, e.g. mathematics, science, history, geography, reading, etc.
The “education” of today is anything but that, it is designed specifically to destroy the student’s ability to live his life rationally. The Cultural Marxists (Communists) of the 1920s-30s devised an imminently successful plan to destroy Western Civilization when they realized it couldn’t be done by bloody revolution (the Russian Revolution in particular) they attacked the mind/philosophy. It was to be achieved by their “march through the institutions”…infiltrating every important influential aspect of Western cultures. Names, dates, places are easily researched. (They were precluded by John Dewey at the turn of the century with his emphasis on emotion rather than rationality, which made their goals easier to achieve.)
Elements of their philosophy included “Critical Theory”, i.e. criticize, relentlessly attack all aspects of western values…the family unit, the father figure, the use of reason, civility, etiquette, manners, knowledge of true history, merit, earned pride/self-esteem, high expectations, achievement, rugged individualism. Also, one was to be discriminating in their choice of friends, activities, values—meaning divesting oneself of any negative influences. Today we are taught the opposite, that discrimination is deplorable & to be vilified.
The principal tool used to accomplish their success is “Political Correctness”, i.e. feminism, sexism, racism, affirmative action, quotas, homophobia, group reliance, “takes a village to raise a child”, diversity, ad infinitum. Collectivism good, individualism bad.
Some of the first subjects to be banished were logic, ancient history, Latin, philosophy, epistemology, literary classics, poetry, challenging/higher mathematics & sciences…anything requiring excellence, effort, merit was deemed bad, whereas the emphasis more & more became the group, ease in subject matter, approximations instead of hard true facts(2+2 can = 5), feelings became more important than subject matter, history (& other subjects) were revised to suit the collectivist controllers. Children were no longer to be challenged because their “feelings” might be hurt, expectations were lowered, false self-esteem instilled (everyone gets a trophy), their subject matter education was delayed and watered down. Discipline became a no no, it too might hurt “feelings”, therefore standards were badly diminished.
Rugged individualism, upon which this country was founded and grew to preeminence, was now verboten because that was the principal enemy of Collectivism where “each was given according to his need”, forced redistribution was not only expected but enforced. The ruling elites were just more equal than all the others (Animal Farm). Rugged individuals not only don’t fit in, they fight back.
Outcome: “Snowflakes” who wither in the light of day, slithering cowards seeking “safe places”, dysfunctional families, citizens who not only do not understand the proper role of government but do not seek that knowledge (willing slaves), children who’ve been conditioned not only to be arrogantly ignorant but even to doubt their own gender or that of others. Sheer insanity from which only the strongest of minds can escape.
But, as always, the blame falls on the taxpayers for not giving up more of their earnings to malevolent education/propaganda/conditioning institutions. There are mega-bucks attached to failure, so the beat goes on & on. Funding follows failure. Today the parents & teachers are victims of the same mind-bending and have no idea what is wrong—but many know SOMETHING is wrong, but unequipped to think, use logic to discover what.
Outcome: Ignorant, propagandized students march in protest of things they do not comprehend, thugs & savages are in the streets, rioting, destroying, even killing without accountability because being held accountable was erased in our major institutions……education, justice system, politics, media, etc. Eternal wars are waged against phantom enemies invented by the industrial/military/media complex for untold riches, while the patriotically conditioned youth (watch the military worship preceding public events) is used as mere cannon fodder.
The Collectivists knew the key to Western & Caucasian destruction was the elimination of true education and they have succeeded beyond their wildest dreams. Chaos, tribalism, & loss of individual freedoms are their results, along with ultimate power and $Trillions of unearned, bloody money. The “Camp of the Saints” is in full bloom, along with the end of civilization. Only the fabulously wealthy globalists will not pay the terrible price—they hope.
Abolish the Dept. of Education
End the ED, Support H.R. 899 to Abolish the Dept. of Education
On February 7, 2017, Congressman Thomas Massie (R-Ky.) introduced H.R. 899, a bill to abolish the unconstitutional Department of Education (also known as the ED), which was originally organized by President Jimmy Carter when he signed the Department of Education Organization Act on October 17, 1979. Rep. Massie’s bill, which is only one sentence long, states, “The Department of Education shall terminate on December 31, 2018.”
On the same day as President Trump’s nominee for Secretary of Education, Betsy DeVos, was confirmed by the Senate in a rare tie-breaking vote by Vice President Mike Pence, Massie accurately pointed out, “Neither Congress nor the President, through his appointees, has the constitutional authority to dictate how and what our children must learn.” Massie further stated:
Unelected bureaucrats in Washington, D.C. should not be in charge of our children’s intellectual and moral development. States and local communities are best positioned to shape curricula that meet the needs of their students. Schools should be accountable. Parents have the right to choose the most appropriate educational opportunity for their children, including home school, public school, or private school.
Among the bill’s original cosponsors, Congressman Walter Jones (R-N.C.) said of the bill, “For years, I have advocated returning education policy to where it belongs – the state and local level.” Jones added, “D.C. bureaucrats cannot begin to understand the needs of schools and its students on an individual basis. It is time that we get the feds out of the classroom, and terminate the Department of Education.”
In addition to Jones, the other original cosponsors of Massie’s bill include Congressmen Justin Amash (R-Mich.), Andy Biggs (R-Ariz.), Jason Chaffetz (R-Utah), Matt Gaetz (R-Fla.), Jody Hice (R-Ga.), Walter Jones (R-N.C.), and Raúl Labrador (R-Idaho).
Also in support of the bill, former Congressman Ron Paul (R-Texas) stated on Facebook, “I’ve long supported getting rid of the unconstitutional Department of Education. Republicans going back to Ronald Reagan have talked about abolishing it, but it never amounted to anything more than talk.”
Both as a candidate and early on in his presidency, Reagan advocated for abolishing the Department of Education. On September 24, 1981 in his Address to the Nation on the Program for Economic Recovery, President Reagan proposed getting rid of the Department of Education. “By eliminating the Department of Education less than 2 years after it was created, we cannot only reduce the budget but ensure that local needs and preferences, rather than the wishes of Washington, determine the education of our children,” Reagan said.
However, by the time he left office after two-full presidential terms on January 20, 1989, the Department of Education had grown even larger and continued to expand under subsequent purportedly “conservative” Republican presidents, most notably President George W. Bush and his disastrous “No Child Left Behind” program.
Of Massie’s bill, Paul further stated on Facebook, “We desperately need to release the creative energy of teachers at the local level.”
Although Massie’s bill does not specifically address what would happen to the many unconstitutional federal laws related to education, federal student loans, and other various federal aid programs to public schools that have been passed either prior to or since the Department of Education was created, the bill is certainly an encouraging first step in the right direction toward removing the federal government from education.
If passed and signed by President Trump, Massie’s bill would accomplish what President Reagan originally promised, and more importantly it would begin returning control of education back to parents and local communities.
Please send a prewritten, editable message to your representative and senators and ask your representative to cosponsor H.R. 899, a bill to abolish the unconstitutional Department of Education, in the House and ask your senators to introduce and cosponsor a companion bill in the Senate. Let them know that you want to remove the federal government from education and return control of education back to parents and local communities by abolishing the unconstitutional Department of Education.

For months now, long before the 2016 election, I have been warning about a specific social dynamic which is likely to lead to a form of civil war within the U.S.; namely, the reality that people on the left side of the political spectrum would become despondent at the inevitable loss of their candidate, Hillary Clinton, and that they would react by becoming far more militant. In my article ‘Order Out Of Chaos: The Defeat Of The Left Comes With A Cost’, published November post-election, I stated:
“When I mentioned in my last article the crippling of social justice, I did not mention that this could have some negative reverberations. With Trump and conservatives taking near-total power after the Left had assumed they would never lose again, their reaction has been to transform. They are stepping away from the normal activities and mindset of cultural Marxism and evolving into full blown communists. Instead of admitting that their ideology is a failure in every respect, they are doubling down.
When this evolution is complete, the Left WILL resort to direct violent action on a larger scale, and they will do so with a clear conscience because, in their minds, they are fighting fascism.”
I believed at that time that the social-justice cult would lose mainstream influence but that the existing minority would resort to even more insidious tactics and greater violence to get what they want; and, the so-called “moderate left” would cheer them on. As it turns out, I have been proven right so far.
Not that extreme Leftists have been averse to violence over the past year, but I think it is safe to say that the volume on the cultural Marxist machine has been turned up a notch. The riot at UC Berkeley over a scheduled speech by gay, conservative speaker Milo Yiannopoulos is a perfect example:
Then, there was the raid by SJWs at NYU on a speech by conservative journalist and comedian Gavin McInnes, in which they shouted down all discussion with mindless chants until the event had to be canceled. This was, of course, after they had already physically attacked people outside the building, including McInnes:
The social justice mantra is changing. At first, it was predominately about forming mobs to “shame” target political opponents into silence. Now, it is about forming mobs to do what they call “punching Nazis.” Leftists are now often seen regurgitating the claim — “This is only the beginning…”
I agree, this IS only the beginning. The Left is driven not only by the ideology of cultural Marxism, but also a very specific activist strategy outlined in Saul Alinsky’s ‘Rules For Radicals’. The very core of Alinsky’s method revolves around one important rule in particular: the ends justify the means.
This is the key ingredient of moral relativism, and when a movement is motivated by moral relativism, there is no limit to the depths they will sink to get their way. Activists adopting the “ends justify the means” mentality are not interested in being “right,” or wise, or rational or logical or factual; they ONLY care about “winning.” This is their goal, and they will do anything to achieve it.
It is important to note, however, that all of these protests and the increase in violence is not taking place in a vacuum. As many liberty analysts have noted, Trump has hardly had time to do anything yet that would warrant national protests. Is Trump really the only catalyst? Not quite. The mainstream media and globalists like George Soros have been very effective in agitating or outright paying protesters and provocateurs to generate zombie mobs of gullible Leftists to use as a billy club for harassing conservatives.
That said, I want liberty activists and analysts to ponder on this for a moment — to what end is this being done? Why is Soros so interested in fomenting leftist rage? Is it designed to overthrow Trump? To initiate mob action and frighten conservatives into silence? Or do the globalists have a greater and more important goal in mind?
I have been writing often on the idea of 4th Generation Warfare the past month, and I think my readers are now well versed in the concept of the “three-steps-ahead” style of tactics, as well as the concept of manipulating an opponent to destroy himself, rather than fighting him directly. These are not new methods, the globalists have merely taken them to the next level.
But how do 4th Gen warfare tactics apply to the current Right vs. Left scenario in the U.S.? Well, everything is not as obvious as it seems.
As I outlined in-depth in my article Clinton Versus Trump And The Co-Option Of The Liberty Movement, globalists and the leftist media have been, in a strange way, quietly cheering for Trump, but only as a tool for absorbing the liberty movement (what they still call the “Tea Party”). This glee is made rather evident in an article published by Bloomberg in August titled The Tea Party Meets Its Maker.
There is a point I have been trying to make for most of the year that I think has been consistently missed by many in the liberty movement. That point being that the greatest danger to conservatives is NOT militant Leftists, but how we RESPOND to militant Leftists. That is to say, I believe the globalists are using the Left as a cattle prod to enrage conservatives and lure us into abandoning our principles in the name of defeating Marxists.
Consider this; the argument among most liberty analysts has been that the numerous anti-Constitutional programs put in place by the Obama administration in the past eights years would eventually be used by the political Left and the globalists as weapons to subdue and destroy conservatives and patriot groups. While Obama certainly tested the waters of tyranny over and over again, up to and including using executive orders to assassinate American citizens without trial, it is clear that those extensive powers afforded to the White House are no longer in the hands of the left; they are in the hands of Trump.
Obama even signed the “Countering Disinformation And Propaganda Act” into law AFTER Trump had already won the White House. Trump has now inherited this power as well, which seems to give government the authority to harass or even silence news sources they deem “fake news.” While many liberty activists cried foul and warned of a “coup” designed to shut down alternative news sites and thwart Trump’s inauguration, I warned that there was a much more dangerous scenario in play.
What will conservatives do in the face of the leftist mob funded by globalists and growing ever more vicious? Well, what do the globalists expect us to do? I think they expect us to look at all the government powers we once admonished as unConstitutional and say “hey, maybe these laws and executive orders are not so bad after all…”
I think the globalists are handing us the incredible temptation of far reaching bureaucratic power, and they expect us to abuse that power, as almost anyone would.
As an alternative analyst I am privy to trends in the liberty movement and in conservative circles that might not be immediately obvious to casual readers. Already, I am witnessing calls among conservatives to abuse government power to defeat the Left. I have seen comments such as:
“Trump should use the NDAA to imprison these leftists indefinitely…”
“The only solution is to throw the leftists into FEMA camps…”
“Trump needs to shut down the leftist media…”
“Sometimes it is okay to bend the rules of the constitution if you have the right president…”
And comments like this are popping up everywhere in liberty media boards. Now, I recognize that some of this talk is being posted by paid disinformation agents and provocateurs, but, I have heard regular conservatives and patriots, people who are long time proponents of the Constitution, echo similar sentiments.
I often use the analogy of the “One Ring” from The Lord Of The Rings to describe big government power. I really can’t find a better fictional symbol. Anyone who comes into possession of the “one ring” is eventually corrupted by it. Many good people believe that its darker energy can be contained and directed for good purposes, but they, too, are ultimately undone by it. The only answer, the only solution, is to abandon the ring, or to destroy it.
Overt government power is very much the same; it corrupts any person or group that comes in contact with it. Every group thinks that if only THEY were in possession of government that they would do things differently. This is a delusion. No person or group is benevolent enough to handle this responsibility, and this includes conservatives. Many groups would commit egregious and heinous crimes to take government for themselves, or keep it for themselves, all the while so many Saurons (globalists) laugh and smack their lips as the masses battle over numerous rings of power.
As I have noted time and time again for the past several months, Trump is the perfect tool for scapegoating conservative movements for the economic crisis the elites have already engineered. But, this is only one part of the agenda. In the midst of chaos generated by financial calamity, the morals of an entire society can become “malleable”. The most important target of the globalists is not only conservatives, but the conservative philosophy. They don’t just want to annihilate conservatives today, they want to annihilate conservatives for all time.
The globalists cannot accomplish this task without our help. They NEED us to adopt an attitude of moral relativism, much like the Left. They need us to turn into totalitarians. They need us to become the monster we claim we want to defeat. Only then can conservative principles be demonized for all time. Only then will history look back on us as a stain on the human record.
This is the globalist’s long game.
While Leftists are being encouraged to mutate into wild frothing packs of rabid dogs, conservatives will be encouraged either through temptation or manipulation to respond in kind. The Left’s propaganda train asserts that we are “fascists.” Obviously, we are the furthest thing from this. But, with enough violence and aggressive censorship on their part, we might end up saying “Okay, you want to see fascism, we’ll show you fascism!”
The social justice cult has no idea what they are being led into. The globalists are going to throw them to the wolves, and WE are the wolves.
It is important to note that the Left is also not the only instigator for conservatives to turn totalitarian. Islamic terrorism is always a perfect rationale for increased government intrusion in the name of safety. The worst part is, the threats from the Left and the threats from Islamic extremism are in most cases quite legitimate, and they seem to be working hand-in-hand more each day.
The progressive interference with steps towards more rational immigration policies and their steady defense of Sharia Law leads many conservatives to see them as one in the same enemy. No foreigner is entitled to citizenship in the U.S., but leftists live in a fantasy world of open borders. The left’s refusal to entertain reasonable and selective immigration will eventually push conservatives towards more drastic measures, which is the ultimate point.
Very few Americans like Communists, and very few Americans like Muslim zealotry; the justification for totalitarian measures to disrupt such threats is relatively easy for many people.
This is why I am going to make my next prediction of a major geopolitical event to close out this article — I believe there will be a large scale terrorist attack within the next three months, beyond the mob actions of the Left already in progress.
It will either be similar in scope to 9/11, or, it will be a succession of many smaller attacks occurring over the course of a few days to a couple of weeks. I believe that the current dispute over border controls and immigration denial will come immediately into play. Trump will blame Leftists for obstructing his efforts for secure immigration. Leftists and the media will blame Trump for “radicalizing” Muslims with his immigration policies, or perhaps even accuse him of staging the attacks himself. Trump will begin taking extraordinary measures beyond the Constitution to ensure immigration denial and the thwarting of the Left, and conservatives will applaud him for it.
Again, conservatives are being led by globalists into the temptations of power. The only way for us to fight back is to maintain our principles and refuse to support ANY government measure that is unConstitutional, even if it is to be used against our enemies. The only way that the heritage of liberty can be defeated is if the proponents and champions of liberty forsake it. We beat the globalists in the long run by standing by our ideals and fighting back within the bounds of the principles we hold dear. Dominance through government is never the answer.

By John W. Whitehead
“After five years of Hitler’s dictatorship, the Nazi police had won the FBI’s seal of approval.”— Historian Robert Gellately
“Adolf Hitler is alive and well in the United States, and he is fast rising to power.”—Paul Craig Roberts, former Assistant Secretary of the Treasury, on the danger posed by the FBI to our civil liberties
Lately, there’s been a lot of rhetoric comparing Donald Trump to Adolf Hitler. The concern is that a Nazi-type regime may be rising in America.
That process, however, began a long time ago.
In fact, following the second World War, the U.S. government recruited Hitler’s employees, adopted his protocols, embraced his mindset about law and order, implemented his tactics in incremental steps, and began to lay the foundations for the rise of the Fourth Reich.
Sounds far-fetched? Read on. It’s all documented.
As historian Robert Gellately recounts, the Nazi police state was initially so admired for its efficiency and order by the world powers of the day that J. Edgar Hoover, then-head of the FBI, actually sent one of his right-hand men, Edmund Patrick Coffey, to Berlin in January 1938 at the invitation of Germany’s secret police—the Gestapo.
The FBI was so impressed with the Nazi regime that, according to the New York Times, in the decades after World War II, the FBI, along with other government agencies, aggressively recruited at least a thousand Nazis, including some of Hitler’s highest henchmen.
All told, thousands of Nazi collaborators—including the head of a Nazi concentration camp, among others—were given secret visas and brought to America by way of Project Paperclip. Subsequently, they were hired on as spies and informants, and then camouflaged to ensure that their true identities and ties to Hitler’s holocaust machine would remain unknown. All the while, thousands of Jewish refugees were refused entry visas to the U.S. on the grounds that it could threaten national security.
Adding further insult to injury, American taxpayers have been paying to keep these ex-Nazis on the U.S. government’s payroll ever since. And in true Gestapo fashion, anyone who has dared to blow the whistle on the FBI’s illicit Nazi ties has found himself spied upon, intimidated, harassed and labeled a threat to national security.
As if the government’s covert, taxpayer-funded employment of Nazis after World War II wasn’t bad enough, U.S. government agencies—the FBI, CIA and the military—have fully embraced many of the Nazi’s well-honed policing tactics, and have used them repeatedly against American citizens.
Indeed, with every passing day, the United States government borrows yet another leaf from Nazi Germany’s playbook: Secret police. Secret courts. Secret government agencies. Surveillance. Censorship. Intimidation. Harassment. Torture. Brutality. Widespread corruption. Entrapment. Indoctrination. Indefinite detention.
These are not tactics used by constitutional republics, where the rule of law and the rights of the citizenry reign supreme. Rather, they are the hallmarks of authoritarian regimes, where the only law that counts comes in the form of heavy-handed, unilateral dictates from a supreme ruler who uses a secret police to control the populace.
That danger is now posed by the FBI, whose laundry list of crimes against the American people includes surveillance, disinformation, blackmail, entrapment, intimidation tactics, harassment and indoctrination, governmental overreach, abuse, misconduct, trespassing, enabling criminal activity, and damaging private property, and that’s just based on what we know.
Whether the FBI is planting undercover agents in churches, synagogues and mosques; issuing fake emergency letters to gain access to Americans’ phone records; using intimidation tactics to silence Americans who are critical of the government; recruiting high school students to spy on and report fellow students who show signs of being future terrorists; or persuading impressionable individuals to plot acts of terror and then entrapping them, the overall impression of the nation’s secret police force is that of a well-dressed thug, flexing its muscles and doing the boss’ dirty work of ensuring compliance, keeping tabs on potential dissidents, and punishing those who dare to challenge the status quo.
Whatever minimal restrictions initially kept the FBI’s surveillance activities within the bounds of the law have all but disappeared post-9/11. Since then, the FBI has been transformed into a mammoth federal policing and surveillance agency that largely operates as a power unto itself, beyond the reach of established laws, court rulings and legislative mandates.
Consider the FBI’s far-reaching powers to surveil, detain, interrogate, investigate, prosecute, punish, police and generally act as a law unto themselves—much like their Nazi cousins, the Gestapo—and then try to convince yourself that the United States is still a constitutional republic.
Just like the Gestapo, the FBI has vast resources, vast investigatory powers, and vast discretion to determine who is an enemy of the state.
Today, the FBI employs more than 35,000 individuals and operates more than 56 field offices in major cities across the U.S., as well as 400 resident agencies in smaller towns, and more than 50 international offices. In addition to their “data campus,” which houses more than 96 million sets of fingerprints from across the United States and elsewhere, the FBI has also built a vast repository of “profiles of tens of thousands of Americans and legal residents who are not accused of any crime. What they have done is appear to be acting suspiciously to a town sheriff, a traffic cop or even a neighbor.” The FBI’s burgeoning databases on Americans are not only being added to and used by local police agencies, but are also being made available to employers for real-time background checks.
All of this is made possible by the agency’s nearly unlimited resources (its minimum budget alone in fiscal year 2015 was $8.3 billion), the government’s vast arsenal of technology, the interconnectedness of government intelligence agencies, and information sharing through fusion centers—data collecting intelligence agencies spread throughout the country that constantly monitor communications (including those of American citizens), everything from internet activity and web searches to text messages, phone calls and emails.
Much like the Gestapo spied on mail and phone calls, FBI agents have carte blanche access to the citizenry’s most personal information.
Working through the U.S. Post Office, the FBI has access to every piece of mail that passes through the postal system: more than 160 billion pieces are scanned and recorded annually. Moreover, the agency’s National Security Letters, one of the many illicit powers authorized by the USA Patriot Act, allows the FBI to secretly demand that banks, phone companies, and other businesses provide them with customer information and not disclose those demands to the customer. An internal audit of the agency found that the FBI practice of issuing tens of thousands of NSLs every year for sensitive information such as phone and financial records, often in non-emergency cases, is riddled with widespread constitutional violations.
Much like the Gestapo’s sophisticated surveillance programs, the FBI’s spying capabilities can delve into Americans’ most intimate details (and allow local police to do so, as well).
In addition to technology (which is shared with police agencies) that allows them to listen in on phone calls, read emails and text messages, and monitor web activities, the FBI’s surveillance boasts an invasive collection of spy tools ranging from Stingray devices that can track the location of cell phones to Triggerfish devices which allow agents to eavesdrop on phone calls. In one case, the FBI actually managed to remotely reprogram a “suspect’s” wireless internet card so that it would send “real-time cell-site location data to Verizon, which forwarded the data to the FBI.” Law enforcement agencies are also using social media tracking software to monitor Facebook, Twitter and Instagram posts. Moreover, secret FBI rules also allow agents to spy on journalists without significant judicial oversight.
Much like the Gestapo’s ability to profile based on race and religion, and its assumption of guilt by association, the FBI’s approach to pre-crime allows it to profile Americans based on a broad range of characteristics including race and religion.
The agency’s biometric database has grown to massive proportions, the largest in the world, encompassing everything from fingerprints, palm, face and iris scans to DNA, and is being increasingly shared between federal, state and local law enforcement agencies in an effort to target potential criminals long before they ever commit a crime. This is what’s known as pre-crime. Yet it’s not just your actions that will get you in trouble. In many cases, it’s also who you know—even minimally—and where your sympathies lie that could land you on a government watch list. Moreover, as the Intercept reports, despite anti-profiling prohibitions, the bureau “claims considerable latitude to use race, ethnicity, nationality, and religion in deciding which people and communities to investigate.”
Much like the Gestapo’s power to render anyone an enemy of the state, the FBI has the power to label anyone a domestic terrorist.
As part of the government’s so-called ongoing war on terror, the nation’s de facto secret police force has begun using the terms “anti-government,” “extremist” and “terrorist” interchangeably. Moreover, the government continues to add to its growing list of characteristics that can be used to identify an individual (especially anyone who disagrees with the government) as a potential domestic terrorist. For instance, you might be a domestic terrorist in the eyes of the FBI (and its network of snitches) if you:
- express libertarian philosophies (statements, bumper stickers)
- exhibit Second Amendment-oriented views (NRA or gun club membership)
- read survivalist literature, including apocalyptic fictional books
- show signs of self-sufficiency (stockpiling food, ammo, hand tools, medical supplies)
- fear an economic collapse
- buy gold and barter items
- subscribe to religious views concerning the book of Revelation
- voice fears about Big Brother or big government
- expound about constitutional rights and civil liberties
- believe in a New World Order conspiracy
Much like the Gestapo infiltrated communities in order to spy on the German citizenry, the FBI routinely infiltrates political and religious groups, as well as businesses.
As Cora Currier writes for the Intercept: “Using loopholes it has kept secret for years, the FBI can in certain circumstances bypass its own rules in order to send undercover agents or informants into political and religious organizations, as well as schools, clubs, and businesses…” The FBI has even been paying Geek Squad technicians at Best Buy to spy on customers’ computers without a warrant.
Just as the Gestapo united and militarized Germany’s police forces into a national police force, America’s police forces have largely been federalized and turned into a national police force.
In addition to government programs that provide the nation’s police forces with military equipment and training, the FBI also operates a National Academy that trains thousands of police chiefs every year and indoctrinates them into an agency mindset that advocates the use of surveillance technology and information sharing between local, state, federal, and international agencies.
Just as the Gestapo’s secret files on political leaders were used to intimidate and coerce, the FBI’s files on anyone suspected of “anti-government” sentiment have been similarly abused.
As countless documents make clear, the FBI has no qualms about using its extensive powers in order to blackmail politicians, spy on celebrities and high-ranking government officials, and intimidate and attempt to discredit dissidents of all stripes. For example, not only did the FBI follow Martin Luther King Jr. and bug his phones and hotel rooms, but agents also sent him anonymous letters urging him to commit suicide and pressured a Massachusetts college into dropping King as its commencement speaker.
Just as the Gestapo carried out entrapment operations, the FBI has become a master in the art of entrapment.
In the wake of the 9/11 terrorist attacks the FBI has not only targeted vulnerable individuals but has also lured or blackmailed them into fake terror plots while actually equipping them with the organization, money, weapons and motivation to carry out the plots—entrapment—and then jailing or deporting them for their so-called terrorist plotting. This is what the FBI characterizes as “forward leaning—preventative—prosecutions.” In addition to creating certain crimes in order to then “solve” them, the FBI also gives certain informants permission to break the law, “including everything from buying and selling illegal drugs to bribing government officials and plotting robberies,” in exchange for their cooperation on other fronts. USA Today estimates that agents have authorized criminals to engage in as many as 15 crimes a day. Some of these informants are getting paid astronomical sums: one particularly unsavory fellow, later arrested for attempting to run over a police officer, was actually paid $85,000 for his help laying the trap for an entrapment scheme.
When and if a true history of the FBI is ever written, it will not only track the rise of the American police state but it will also chart the decline of freedom in America, in much the same way that the empowerment of Germany’s secret police tracked with the rise of the Nazi regime.
How did the Gestapo become the terror of the Third Reich?
It did so by creating a sophisticated surveillance and law enforcement system that relied for its success on the cooperation of the military, the police, the intelligence community, neighborhood watchdogs, government workers for the post office and railroads, ordinary civil servants, and a nation of snitches inclined to report “rumors, deviant behavior, or even just loose talk.”
In other words, ordinary citizens working with government agents helped create the monster that became Nazi Germany. Writing for the New York Times, Barry Ewen paints a particularly chilling portrait of how an entire nation becomes complicit in its own downfall by looking the other way:
In what may be his most provocative statement, [author Eric A.] Johnson says that ‘‘most Germans may not even have realized until very late in the war, if ever, that they were living in a vile dictatorship.’’ This is not to say that they were unaware of the Holocaust; Johnson demonstrates that millions of Germans must have known at least some of the truth. But, he concludes, ‘‘a tacit Faustian bargain was struck between the regime and the citizenry.’’ The government looked the other way when petty crimes were being committed. Ordinary Germans looked the other way when Jews were being rounded up and murdered; they abetted one of the greatest crimes of the 20th century not through active collaboration but through passivity, denial and indifference.
Much like the German people, “we the people” have become passive, polarized, gullible, easily manipulated, and lacking in critical thinking skills. Distracted by entertainment spectacles, politics and screen devices, we too are complicit, silent partners in creating a police state similar to the terror practiced by former regimes.
Can the Fourth Reich happen here?
As I point out in my book Battlefield America: The War on the American People, it’s already happening right under our noses.

OLDDOGS MUST READ LIST
I have heard it said “A man is what he reads”, so what is he if he does not read? Well like so many Americans these days, I would say he is NOT MUCH. He is probably an air-head TV junkie at best and intellectually defiant, only taking what he can, and uninterested in anything requiring though or labor.
Hopefully that is not you; the reader of this rant.
My opinion of this book is that every human being in this woebegone land should be forced to read it, so his/her brain could be exposed to some oxygen that is produced by cognitive activity in the tissue occupying the frontal cortex.
Amazing true story about American heroes who dared to challenge tyranny at every level. (Adventure, Philosophy, Intelligence)
Ordinary citizens had the government running scared!
With a background in International Business, Rex Freeman was recruited heavily by the C.I.A. to do work overseas under ‘private cover’. He endured a gruelling screening process which spanned nearly 8 months. When he was finally invited to the Langley headquarters to make the final step, he declined the offer. Being a man of strong principles he knew he wouldn’t fit in any situation in which he’d have to sell his soul for nefarious black ops.
It wasn’t long before he had a run in with the I.R.S. which didn’t suit him much. He uncovered fraud in the process and this led him to start studying the law. The more he studied, the more fraud, deception and misapplication of the law he uncovered and it wasn’t long before he became a citizen advocate for natural rights and lawful government. Instead of working ‘for’ the government as he nearly did, he was now attacking it head on and trying to put overzealous tyrants back in their proper place as servants to their masters, the people.
Rex became very public with weekly seminars and public training exposing the corruption and then offering solutions on what people can do about it to protect themselves and hold tyrants accountable. This led to a radio show and that ‘did it’. He became a threat to ‘business as usual’ by the ‘status quo’. The game was on and he became a target for persecution. The more government tried to silence him, the more he discovered and he became even more effective in countering the their attacks and suppression tactics.
They threw him in jail, and he broadcast his radio show from the phone in his cell pod interviewing the inmates about abuses they had suffered. They couldn’t shut him up. He wouldn’t back down. The more they threatened him, the more he pushed back and he exposed their iniquity for all to see.
Rex and others like him took on;
Errant Public Officials
and even The Fed and the U.S. Treasury.
They proved that the Government Goliath could be humbled by their Citizen Masters!
We all know that ‘Knowledge is Power’. Rex and others like him had acquired the knowledge and the power to defend themselves and challenge ‘the machine’ which so many of us feel so helpless to stand up against. This is a story of hope. It is a gripping adventure. It’s entertaining and funny! Yet it is as serious as a heart attack. You will be enlightened when you learn some of the amazing discoveries that were made and you will see the key issues that have bound you over to servitude in our current system of law.
Lessons and Discoveries for all Americans & Freedom Lovers Worldwide.
The issues raised in this book are critical to understand as it comes down to pure operation of law and how your rights are converted into privileges and regulated by the government. Which do you prefer; the status quo where temporary government granted privileges can be suspended on a whim? Or immutable Natural, God Given rights, which nobody can infringe upon? The choice is yours.
Reclaim those natural rights. Understand the issues.
Read this book to advance your knowledge (while being entertained at the same time)

5.0 out of 5 starsA Revelation of Compassionate Service
ByPouvre Toveson May 28, 2015
Format: Kindle Edition
This book is unmistakably, an autobiography, set in the most recent time-frame and applicable to all Americans who love liberty and long for the freedoms we have lost.
It unveils a chronology of historical details few could know by direct experience.
It exposes a cesspool of corruption and reflects upon the evil at the core of our cultural demise. This IS a record of the global cabal masquerading behind a veil of darkness even when illuminated by the light of truth. And it is intimate with our sorrow as a Fallen Nation – not unlike how the Native Americans were beaten into submission not so long ago.
Our Founding Fathers admonished us to keep vigilant to defend our GREAT REPUBLIC against the forces they knew all too well would work to undermine, corrupt and usurp our freedoms. We did not listen.
This book shows how we have become slaves – how the terms of our capture are dictated and how we are granted permission to live and work for ‘them.’
One Freeman’s War is our war – though few choose to stand up and fight or have the guts to take a stand for what is ethical, compassionate and liberating. How often we choose to fight against each other than join together to reclaim what is ours – granted only by God.
In this book you will read about the way some freedom fighters broke through the walls of this great deception and walked into the illusion and stood for a time in that other world of sheer greed and power. They saw the puppeteers behind that shroud and engaged them. They were emboldened by what they learned and entered their castle keep to reclaim what had been stolen – from us all.
Using their discoveries we now have a map we can all study to follow – a map that leads to a new land of liberty for all as Freemen.

Format: Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is a must read for those who still have their heads buried in the sand as to how crooked our judicial system is and how they will lie, cheat and steal to take away anybody’s freedom if they aren’t one of the sheeple and marching to the beat of the drum. I only wish I were as versed on the law of the land as well as the author. He gives very good information regarding the legal processes he used to defend himself against the system, which could be useful in helping anyone who chooses to live life as a free man, as God intended. I admire the author for writing this book in hopes that it will become a best seller, whereas awakening the masses to the fact that even though freedom is a God given right, if we don’t fight for it, it will be lost forever. Good work, Mark!!!

5.0 out of 5 starsA story of a modern Don Quixote
Bysquireon June 9, 2015
This is the story of a modern Don Quixote with all of the adventure and humor, but with a great deal of sadness since it is not based upon the imagination of a writer, but mostly upon the real life drama that Americans suffer through every day. Yes, suffer through, even if most Americans are too blind and indifferent to see the reality of their own situation. The story of Rex Freeman is a story of the desire to live free. Not everyone will agree with his methods, or even his direction, but who cannot desire to be free? There are many paths for many people, and the adventure is figuring out which one is for you. Or you can just sit at home on your couch watching Reality TV while Reality quietly slips past you, and you are bound by the soft cords of modern tyranny.

4.0 out of 5 starsA BRILLIANT LESSON TO PROTECT FROM TYRANNY.
ByPierre Herberton May 29, 2015
Format: Paperback|Verified Purchase
Within less than 350 pages, you learn, if you did not know it before, that honest people need to protect themselves against tyranny:
If people do not know how they can be manipulated, they will be controlled. our God given rights are “legislated away” and speculators, money powers, other potential and powerful tyrants will govern you, already own you thru the bank system and the public servants modus operandi.
Nowadays, God’s law has been hijacked by man’s law and, if ignorant, we boast about it like we boast about man’s technological progress which is about to destroy our planet and ourselves.
Would we be able to teach every one what it is all about, oppression would have to vanish and honest people would have another chance to live free.
Mark Emery is trying here to give us the first lesson to adapt and find solutions. The book is brilliantly written and evident power games are well documented. I find it very entertaining.

As I outlined in my article ‘The False Economic Narrative Will Die In 2017’, the mainstream media has been carefully crafting the propaganda meme that the Trump administration is inheriting a global economy in “ascension,” when in fact, the opposite is true. Trump enters office at a time of longstanding decline and will likely witness severe and accelerated decline over the course of the next year. The signs are already present, and this fits exactly with the basis for my prediction of the Trump election win — conservative movements are indeed being set up as scapegoats for a global economic crisis that international financiers actually created.
Plus, it doesn’t help that Trump keeps boasting about the farcical Dow hitting record highs after his entry into the White House. Talk about the perfect setup…
With the speed at which Trump is issuing executive orders, my concern is that people’s heads will be spinning so fast they will start to assume an appearance of economic progress. Here is the issue — some problems simply cannot be fixed, at least not in a top down fashion. Some disasters cannot be prevented. Sometimes, a crisis has to run its course before a nation or society or economy can return to stability. This is invariably true of the underlying crisis within the U.S. economy.
It is imperative that liberty activists and conservatives avoid false hope in fiscal recovery and remain vigilant and prepared for a breakdown within the system. Despite the sudden political sea change with Trump and the Republican party in majority control of the D.C. apparatus, there is nothing that can be done through government to ease fiscal tensions at this time. Here are some of the primary reasons why:
Government Does Not Create Wealth
Government is a wealth-devouring machine. The bigger the government, the more adept it is at snatching capital and misallocating it. Such a system is inherently unequipped to repair an economy in a stagflationary spiral.
I’m hearing a whole lot of talk lately on all the jobs that will be created through Trump’s infrastructure spending plans, which reminds me of the desperation at the onset of the Great Depression and the efforts by Herbert Hoover to reignite the U.S. economy through a series of public works programs. Reality does not support a successful outcome for this endeavor.
First off, Trump’s ideas for infrastructure spending to kick start a U.S. recovery are not new. The Obama administration and Congress passed the largest transportation spending bill in more than a decade in 2015 and pushed for a similar strategy to what is now being suggested by Trump. I should point out though that like Herbert Hoover, Obama’s efforts in this area were essentially fruitless. Obama was the first president since Hoover to see “official” annual U.S. GDP growth drop below 3 percent for the entirety of his presidency, with GDP in 2016 dropping to a dismal 1.6 percent.
Though projects like the Hoover Dam were epic in scope and electrifying to the public imagination during the Depression, they did little to fuel the overall long-term prospects of the American economy. This is because government is incapable of creating wealth; it can only steal wealth from the citizenry through taxation to pay debts conjured out of thin air, or, it can strike a devil’s bargain with central banks to print its way to fake prosperity.
Some might argue that Trump is more likely to redirect funds from poorly conceived Obama-era programs instead of increasing taxes or printing, but this does not change the bigger picture. Redirected funds are still taxpayer funds, and those funds would be far better spent if they were returned to taxpayers rather than wasted in a vain effort to increase GDP by a percentage point. Beyond this, the number of jobs generated through the process will be a drop in the bucket compared to the 100 million plus people no longer employed within the U.S. at this time.
Bottom line? Though new roads and a wall on the southern border are winners for many conservatives, infrastructure spending is a non-solution in preventing a long-term fiscal disaster.
Interdependency Is Hard To Break
Another prospect for raising funds to pay for job generating public works projects is the use of tariffs on foreign imports. Specifically, imports of goods from countries which have maintained unfair trade advantages through global agreements like NAFTA, CAFTA or the China Trade Bill. This is obviously a practical concept and it was always the intention of the founding father post-revolution for government to generate most of its funding through taxation of foreign imports and interstate commerce, rather than taxation of the hard earned incomes of the citizenry. However, the idea is not without consequences.
Unfortunately, globalists have spent the better part of a half-century ensuring that individual nations are completely financially dependent on one another. The U.S. is at the very CENTER of this interdependency with our currency as the world reserve standard. In order to change the nature of the inderdependent system, we have to change the nature of our participation within that system. This means, in order to assert large tariffs on countries like China (which Trump has suggested), America would have to be willing to sacrifice the main advantage it enjoys within the interdependent model — we would have to sacrifice the dollar’s world reserve status.
Keep in mind, this is likely to be done for us in an aggressive manner by nations like China. China’s considerable dollar and treasury bond holds can be liquidated, and despite claims by mainstream shills, this WILL in fact have destructive effects on the U.S. economy.
Also keep in mind that with higher tariffs come higher prices on the shelf. The majority of goods consumed by Americans come from outside the country. Higher tariffs only work to our advantage when we have a manufacturing base capable of producing the goods we need at prices we can afford. The American manufacturing base within our own nation is essentially nonexistent compared to the Great Depression. In order to levy tariffs we would need a level of production support we simply do not have.
The point is, an unprecedented change in America’s production dynamic would have to happen so that we do not face heavy fiscal consequences for the use of tariffs as an economic weapon.
Manufacturing Takes Time To Rebuild
Much excitement has been garnered by reports that certain U.S. corporations will be bringing some manufacturing back within our borders over the course of Trump’s first term as president. And certainly this is something that needs to happen. We should have never outsourced our manufacturing capability in the first place. But, is this too little too late? I believe so.
I remember back in 2008/2009 mainstream economists were applauding the Federal Reserve’s bailout efforts and the call for quantitative easing, because, they argued, this would diminish the dollar’s value on the global market, which would make American goods less expensive, and by extension inspire a manufacturing renaissance. Of course, this never happened, which only adds to the mountain of evidence proving that most mainstream economists are intellectual idiots.
It is important that we do not fall into the same false-hope trap in 2017. While Trump may or may not handle matters more aggressively, there is only so much that can be accomplished through politics. Rebuilding a manufacturing base after decades of outsourcing takes time. Many years, in fact. Factories have to be commissioned, money has to change many hands, wages have to be scouted for the best possible labor per-dollar spent and people have to be trained from the very ground up in how to produce goods again. In many cases, the skill sets required to maintain functioning factories in the U.S. (from engineers to machinists to assembly line labor to the people who know how to manage it all) just don’t exist anymore. All we have left are millions of retail and food service workers forming mobs to demand $15 an hour, which is simply not going to encourage a return to manufacturing.
Beyond this, at least in the short term, America will have a much stronger dollar on the global market, rather than a weaker dollar, due to the fact that the Federal Reserve has initiated a renewed series of interest rate increases just as Trump entered office. While the mainstream theorizes that the Fed will turn “dovish” and back away from rate hikes, I think this is a rather naive notion. It serves the elites far better to create a battle between Trump and the Fed – therefore, I see no reason for the Fed to back away from its rate hike process. Trump will demand a weaker dollar, the Fed won’t give it to him, and ultimately, the global economy will start to see the dollar as a risky venture and dump it as the world reserve; which is what the globalist have wanted all along so that they can introduce the SDR as a bridge to a new world currency.
With a “strong” dollar (relative to other indexes) there is even LESS incentive for foreign nations to buy our goods now than there was after the credit crisis in 2008. If the dollar loses world reserve status (as I believe it will during Trump’s first term), then at that point we will have a swiftly falling currency — but too swift to fuel a manufacturing reboot.
Is there even enough internal wealth to support the rise of manufacturing within the U.S. for a period of time necessary for our economy to rebalance? If there is I’m not seeing it. We are a nation mired in debt. So much so that even selling off our natural resources would not erase the problem.
Ultimately, the shift away from being tied to a globalized system towards a self-contained producer nation with a citizenry wealthy enough to sustain that production in light of limited exports to foreign buyers is a shift that requires incredible foresight, precision and ample time. It is not something that can be ramrodded into existence through force or by government decree. In fact, the act of trying to force the change haphazardly will only agitate an economy already on the verge of calamity.
Solutions Start With The Citizenry, Not Washington
I understand that conservatives in particular want to “make America great again,” and I fully agree with that goal. But, someone has to point out the inconsistencies in the current strategy and recognize that the situation is beyond repair. To make America great again would require decentralized efforts to maximize production and self reliance at a local level, not centralized federal tinkering with the economy. The globalists have been far too thorough in their programs of interdependency. The only way out now is for the system to crash and for the right people to be in place to rebuild.
Sadly, not only will a crash result in great tragedy for many Americans, but it is also an outcome the globalists prefer. They believe that THEY will be the men in the right place at the right time to rebuild the system in an even more centralized fashion. They hope to sacrifice the old world order to inspire the social desperation needed to convince the masses of the need for a “new world order.” Again, this crash cannot be avoided, it can only be mitigated. We can prepare and become self sufficient. We can fight to ensure that the globalists are not in a position to rebuild the system in their image once the dust settles. But, we should not place too much expectation that the Trump administration will be able to solve any of our economic problems, if that is even their intent. The solution remains in our hands, not in the hands of the White House.

This morning I looked in my email inbox and saw 50,410 unanswered emails blinking at me. There is no way on Earth that I can answer all or even a small fraction of these. It just isn’t possible. If I had a full-time staff devoted to answering emails for me, they might keep up. As it is, it would take 50 people working over 1,000 emails each today.
Realizing— and finally admitting—- that I am never, ever going to be able to get through all those emails, I just had to hit the “delete” button and hope that the ultimate answers to the mysteries of government and life were not part of the overload.
I also had a heartbreaking question forwarded to me by my Webmaster — a friend who has been sending $10 a month since September and never got a thank you from me. Did it arrive? Did it make a difference? I burst into tears.
We could never come so far, so fast, without the good wishes and help and prayers and $10 donations. This has been a very, very hard winter for everyone on my team, including me. There have been deaths, accidents, illnesses, injuries— you name it, we’ve had it. It’s as if Satan himself took an interest in making our lives miserable the past four months, and with all those setbacks, we wouldn’t have survived it without all of you coming forward and sending us money for gas and copy service and stamps.
I had to sit back and shake my head. I can’t even keep up with thanking all the people all over this country who are and who have been loyally supporting the research and the efforts of our Living Law Firm team. Again, it just isn’t possible. I would have to spend all day every day on nothing but correspondence —- and then I wouldn’t get the actual work done that you want me to do.
So, yes, your PayPal donations to firstname.lastname@example.org do matter, and so do all the checks and money orders and other gifts sent to me in care of Post Office Box 520994, Big Lake, Alaska 99652. You have all helped lift the burden and make it bearable and though I admit to many sins, ingratitude is not one of them! I do get the mail eventually and I bless you all and thank you from the bottom of my heart!
Here is today’s strange but true tidbit that we all need to know: your SURNAME is that of a Warrant Officer in the Merchant Marines known as a Withholding Agent; HE is under a services contract which makes HIM responsible for paying the DEBTS of the government.
Isn’t that cute? All these years they had you convinced that you were paying debts that you owed, but in fact, you are merely a faceless military services subcontractor tasked with paying off the debts of the UNITED STATES and its franchises. As long as you retain a SURNAME, you are presumed to be operating in their foreign system and to be obligated in this way.
So one of the key points to make and prove is that you are no longer in any form of military, quasi-military, or civil service employment. And if they think you are, then they need to produce the contract and the dates and the amounts you have been paid and the name of your supervisor and your job description and all the rest of it.
Once again we find that this entire system is built on nothing more than deceit and self-interested lies. Pure bunko.
So the work excavating the manure pile goes on, and this is what occupies my time and the time of many others every day. We are now at a point where we can begin pulling together the actual pleadings to bring suit against the rats in international courts. Stay tuned for more to come.

Central banking has truly taken over the entire planet. At this point, the only major nation on the globe that does not have a central bank is North Korea. Yes, there are some small island countries such as the Federated States of Micronesia that do not have a central bank, but even if you count them, more than 99.9% of the population of the world still lives in a country that has a central bank. So how has this happened? How have we gotten the entire planet to agree that central banking is the best system? Did the people of the world willingly choose this? Of course not. To my knowledge, there has never been a single vote where the people of a nation have willingly chosen to establish a central bank. Instead, what has happened is that central banks have been imposed on all of us. All over the world, people have been told that monetary issues are “too important” to be subject to politics, and that the only solution is to have a group of unelected, unaccountable bankers control those things for us.
So precisely what does a central bank do?
You would be surprised at how few people can actually answer that question accurately. The following is how Wikipedia describes what a central bank does…
A central bank, reserve bank, or monetary authority is an institution that manages a state’s currency, money supply, and interest rates. Central banks also usually oversee the commercial banking system of their respective countries. In contrast to a commercial bank, a central bank possesses a monopoly on increasing the monetary base in the state, and usually also prints the national currency, which usually serves as the state’s legal tender. Examples include the European Central Bank (ECB), the Bank of England, the Federal Reserve of the United States and the People’s Bank of China.
In the United States, we are told that we have a free market system. But in a true free market system, market forces would determine what interest rates are. We wouldn’t need anyone to “set interest rates” for us.
And why have we given a private banking cartel (the Federal Reserve) the authority to create and manage our money supply? The U.S. Constitution specifically delegates that authority to Congress.
It is not as if we actually need the Federal Reserve. In fact, the greatest period of economic growth in U.S. history happened during the decades before the Federal Reserve was created.
Unfortunately, a little over 100 years ago our leaders decided that it would be best to turn over our financial future to a newly created private banking cartel that was designed by very powerful Wall Street interests. Since that time, the value of our currency has diminished by more than 96 percent and our national debt has gotten more than 5000 times larger.
But despite all of the problems, the vast majority of Democrats and the vast majority of Republicans are not even willing to consider slightly curtailing the immense power of the Federal Reserve. And the idea of getting rid of the Fed altogether is tantamount to blasphemy to most of our politicians.
Of course the same thing is true all over the planet. Central banks are truly “the untouchables” of the modern world. Even though everybody can see what they are doing, there has not been a single successful political movement anywhere on the globe (that I know about) to shut a central bank down.
Instead, in recent years we have just seen the reach of central banking just continue to expand.
For example, just look at what has happened to some of the countries that were not considered to be “integrated” into the “global community”…
-In 2001, the United States invaded Afghanistan. In 2003, Da Afghanistan Bank (who picked that name?) was established by presidential decree. You can find the official website of the bank right here. Now Afghanistan has a modern central bank just like the rest of us.
-In 2003, the United States invaded Iraq. In early 2004, the Central Bank of Iraq was established to manage the Iraqi currency and integrate Iraq into the global financial system. The following comes from the official website of the Central Bank of Iraq…
Following the deposition of Saddam Hussein in the 2003 invasion of Iraq, the Iraqi Governing Council and the Office for Reconstruction and Humanitarian Assistance began printing more Saddam dinar notes as a stopgap measure to maintain the money supply until new currency could be introduced.
The Banking Law was issued September 19, 2003. The law brings Iraq’s legal framework for banking in line with international standards, and seeks to promote confidence in the banking system by establishing a safe, sound, competitive and accessible banking system.
Between October 15, 2003 and January 15, 2004, the Coalition Provisional Authority issued new Iraqi dinar coins and notes, with the notes printed using modern anti-forgery techniques, to “create a single unified currency that is used throughout all of Iraq and will also make money more convenient to use in people’s everyday lives. Old banknotes were exchanged for new at a one-to-one rate, except for the Swiss dinars, which were exchanged at a rate of 150 new dinars for one Swiss dinar.
The Central Bank of Iraq (Arabic: البنك المركزي العراقي) was established as Iraq’s independent central bank by the Central Bank of Iraq Law of March 6, 2004
-In 2011, the United States bombed the living daylights out of Libya. Before Muammar Gaddafi was even overthrown, the U.S. helped the rebels establish a new Central Bank of Libya and form a new national oil company.
Central banks are specifically designed to trap nations in debt spirals from which they can never possibly escape. Today, the debt to GDP ratio for the entire planet is up to an all-time high record of 286 percent. Humanity is being enslaved by a perpetual debt machine, but most people are not even aware that it is happening.
It is time for an awakening. We need to educate as many people as possible about why we need to get rid of the central banks. For those living in the United States, my previous article entitled “On The 100th Anniversary Of The Federal Reserve Here Are 100 Reasons To Shut It Down Forever” is a good place to start. In other countries, we need people to write similar articles about their own central banks in their own languages.
The global elite dominate us because we allow them to dominate us. Their debt-based system greatly enriches them while it enslaves the remainder of the planet. We need to expose their evil system and the dark agenda behind it while we still have time.

What we call “the federal government” isn’t a government. It is not and it never has been. It is a governmental services corporation, which is a different matter entirely.
Please take this outrageous but true statement into your mind and let it rattle around a bit. Savor the fact. Consider the consequences.
The so-called “United States Government” is not a sovereign government of any kind. It is at best an association of sovereign states entered into a mutual services contract with the United States (Trading Company) and its Successors by default.
From the very beginning, the states have been the sovereign units of government. Any power of the “federal government” has been delegated to it by the states, not the other way around.
Nineteen very important powers including production of our money, control of our commerce and trade policies, control of our armed forces (except the militia) and control of our foreign policy were delegated to the British Monarch and the United States (Trading Company) in a quid pro quo in which the British Monarch agreed to act as our Trustee and protector on the High Seas and Navigable Inland Waterways in exchange for these concessions.
That agreement was initially brokered and conceptualized as The Definitive Treaty of Peace, Paris, 1783, and particularized as The Constitution for the united States of America several years later.
So from the start, there was the “united States of America”— an association of states subscribing to the service to be provided by the United States (Trading Company) and there was the British Servicer doing business as the United States. This has been the cause of a great deal of mostly deliberate confusion.
When the states “assembled” in “Congress” it meant that they elected fiduciary deputies accountable to the states —- people known as “Senators” and “Congressmen” — and sent them to a meeting called a “Congress” of the states to discuss and decide matters of mutual interest and establish a body of law applicable in all states known as the “United States Statutes at Large”.
Things went along well enough for several decades, but the British Monarch and the Pope conspired in secret Breach of Trust to undermine the American Government via the Treaty of Verona (1822).
What then commenced can only be called a gigantic fraud scheme.
The Constitution agreed to by the states has always prohibited anyone holding a foreign title of nobility from holding public elected office in the government at any level. In 1819, this provision was strengthened and ratified by the states as the Titles of Nobility Amendment. As a result no member of the Bar Association bearing the title “Esquire” could serve in the American government in any public elected office.
When Abraham Lincoln, a Bar Member, was elected President of the United States in 1860, he was not eligible to serve as President of the United States of America — the association of sovereign states participating in the Congress.
Do you see the trick now?
It was then and is now permitted for members of the Bar to hold any private corporate office, even elected corporate offices, of the United States (Trading Company) or any other such governmental services corporation that followed.
They were only prohibited from holding public elected office in our government.
Lincoln used his private corporate office, President of the United States, to overthrow the public elected government of the United States of America, and he did it by fraud and similar names deceits.
The so-called “federal government” has operated under conditions of Breach of Trust, fraud, deceit, non-disclosure, and inland piracy ever since, shamelessly substituting its private corporate offices for the public offices we are owed.
Each President since Lincoln has functioned as “President of the United States” and the vast majority of them have been Bar Members ineligible to function as “President of the United States of America” even if they had been properly elected and empowered.
As a result of this egregious and carefully concealed fraud upon the American people, there has been no lawfully elected government since 1860—- merely what appears to be one. Even the great conflict giving rise to this circumstance has been misrepresented as “The American Civil War” when in fact no such “war” can be shown to exist: there was never a valid declaration of war and never a peace treaty ending it. It is simply an illegal mercenary conflict that the perpetrators of all this rot have kept simmering on our shores for 150 years.
Lincoln, like Barack Obama, was a British Crown agent and an attorney who did not meet the requirements to be President of the united States of America, nor even President of the United States of America—-but who was eligible to serve as President of the United States, and in that foreign, private, corporate office— they have wrecked havoc and misery upon the innocent American people.
It is well past the hour in which we must wake up and realize that our supposed friends and allies have been closer to fiends and allegories. The so-called “federal government” is merely a storefront for competing international banking cartels.
The so-called FEDERAL RESERVE cartel claims to have purchased the name and copyrights and trademarks to THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA and the IMF cartel claims the same about THE UNITED STATES. They are both commercial crime syndicates that deserve nothing but a prompt liquidation of assets and claims and the return of all property to their Priority Creditors, the American states and people.
It’s time that we all rose up with one voice and accused the Roman Pontiff and the British Monarch of the crimes of their predecessors and addressed the Gross Breach of Trust that their predecessors have been guilty of and the equally Gross Fraud that has been practiced against us, together with the crimes of identity theft, press-ganging, inland piracy, unlawful conversion of assets, enslavement and kidnapping that have been the daily fare of their regimes for the past 150 years.
The good names of the States of America and United States of America belong to us as the lawful heirs and Holders in Due Course without respect to any claims made by the banks of the FEDERAL RESERVE. THE UNITED STATES deserves nothing but a swift kick to the curb.
All these fraudulent claims and operations must be exposed and these conditions must be completely reformed. We must work hard to fully restore our lawful government on the land, call together our jural assemblies to operate our actual counties and states, and regain our senses.
For a hundred and fifty years Americans have been asleep at the wheel, being deliberately misled to believe that a governmental services corporation is the same thing as their own lawful government. That gullibility has cost us millions of lives, trillions of dollars, and sullied our name throughout the world as we have been blamed for the lawlessness, treachery, bigotry, and immorality of the pirates that have claimed to represent us and done terrible and oppressive things in our names.
The Bad News is that we have been clueless and trusting enough to allow this. The Good News is that we don’t have to allow it anymore.
If you love your country and value your lives, it is time to sit —hard— on the Archbishops and Cardinals of the Roman Catholic Church worldwide. Make them all fully aware of the absolutely immoral and duplicitous actions of generations of Popes with regard to this country—-Popes who have waved olive branches and preached love out of one side of their mouths and then, as the Roman Pontiffs, have secretly pursued war and profit and committed all manner of crimes under cover of the Church’s skirts.
If FRANCISCUS thinks he is going to continue these practices unobserved, let’s give him a good salvo and inform him that no, he is not. Let him know that the entire world is watching and that the Church is not going to be able to play duplicitous games in Breach of Trust without paying the full and awful price for its hypocrisy and criminality and double-mindedness. It is, indeed, time for confession and the making of amends, and if not, it is time for the Roman Cult to be recognized as a Satanic festering cancerous sore in the Body of the Church— a disease that needs to be eradicated both from within and without, or it will most certainly kill its host.
The same basic message needs to be carried to the Lords of the Admiralty, the Lord Mayor of London, and the British Monarch. They have not escaped detection. Their hideous mismanagement of their American concession in Washington, DC, has been duly noted by the Americans as well as the rest of the world—which places them squarely between a rock and a very hard place. All these years that they have been wheedling and cheating and dealing in fraud and pretending to “represent” us —they have misused and abused American Servicemen and women who now know the truth of the matter—-that they have been slaughtered and become unwitting murderers in wars for profit, lied to, and then left abandoned as human flotsam, without jobs, without health care, without educations, without a future.
Our veterans have little to lose and good reason to hate everything that the Admiralty, the Lord Mayor, the Queen, and the Bar Associations have stood for.
The rest of the world that has suffered — seemingly at the hands of the Americans —now knows who the actual culprits are.
And it is high time that we told the Federales where to get off our soil and our backs.

A bunch of ” conspiracy Theories” right?
On 911, 2001, the entire U.S. financial system was going to be replaced with the National Economic and Reformation Act which would kill the corrupt cabal money system. Look up N.E.S.A.R.A. It was the Khazarian Mafia Zionists and their Mossad agents stationed in Fort Lee New Jersey who pulled off this attack to steal gold under the buildings and keep their phony dollar system going.
Trump, who now runs the restored republic, has banned 7 countries from immigrating to America because the cabal has given them Dinar and Zim to exchange for higher prices here.
Trump appointed certain individuals to positions of power to test their loyalty. Those who faltered were exposed and fired.
Special operations troops are in the last phase of arrests which number in the thousands of corrupted officials.
Further arrests by the FBI, and the setting up of trials in March continues for all in the world to see.
It is security that has prevented the roll out of the revaluation and exchanges of currencies as test after test is conducted to deny the old regimes any access to wealth.
Our nation has been a cash cow for these thieves whose illegal IRS sends payments to the Queen and Federal Reserve members and does nothing for the nation.
Everything is changing folks and what you were “mind controlled” to perceive as good was actually rotten to the core. The free stuff was designed to make you compliant and dependent as the secret operation to exterminate minorities would reduce the population to only those individuals who contribute something to the system will be left.
Fema Camps, Rail Cars with handcuffs and guillotines, large coffins, chemtrails, Gwen Towers, GMO’s, Non cancer cures, Mercury in fillings and fluoride in drinking water were contributors to their plan.
The information that you have been denied will be forthcoming soon. Some won’t believe it and some will end their lives rather that face this transition from the dark to the light.

FROM THE REDEMPTION MANUAL
In 1921, the federal Sheppart-Towner Maternity Act created the birth “registration” or what we now know as the “Birth Certificate”. It was known as the “Maternity Act” and was sold to the American people as a law that would reduce maternal and infant mortality, protect the health of mothers and infants, and for “other purposes”. One of those other purposes provided for state agencies in overseeing of it’s operations and expenditures. What it really did was create a federal “birth registry’ which exists today, creating “FEDERAL CHILDREN” . This government of “Parents Patriae”, now legislates for American children as if they are owned by the federal government. Through the public school enrollment process and continuing license requirements for most aspects of daily life, these children grow up to be adults indoctrinated into those things necessary to carry our activities that exist in what is call a “free country”.
Before 1921, the records of births and names of children were entered into the family bibles, as were the records of marriages and deaths. These records were readily accepted by both the family and the law as “official records”. Since 1921, the American people have been registering the births and names of their children with the government of the state in which they are born, even though there is no federal law requiring it. The state tells you that registering your child’s birth through the birth certificate serves proof that he/she was born in the united States, thereby making him/her a United States Citizen. For the past several years a social security number has been mandated by the federal government to be issued at birth. The social security number is one of those “other purposes“. It serves as a means of lifelong tracking of the one whose name is on the birth certificate.
In 1933, the united States of America (Corporate Government) was declared bankrupt by President Roosevelt. The governors of the then 48 States pledged the “full faith and credit” of each of their States, including the
CITIZENRY AS COLLATERAL, for loans of credit from the Federal Reserve System.
To wit; “FULL FAITH AND CREDIT” the clause of the U.S. Constitution (Article IV, Section 1) which provides that the various states must recognize legislative acts, public records, and judicial decisions of the other states within the united States. It requires that foreign judgment be given such faith and credit as it had by law or usage of state of it’s origin. That foreign statutes are to have force and effect to which they are entitled in home state. And that a judgment of record shall have the same FAITH, CREDIT CONCLUSIVE EFFECT, and obligatory force in other states as it has by law or usage in the state from whence taken. Black’s Law Dictionary, Fourth Edition, and Sixth Edition (page 672), cites omitted.
After receiving the information of live birth and other particulars for the birth certificate accompanied by the assigned social security number, the state claims an interest in every child within it’s jurisdiction. The state will, if it deems it necessary, nullify your parental rights and appoint a guardian (trustee) over your children. The subject of every birth certificate is a child. The child is a valuable asset which, if properly trained, can contribute valuable assets provided by it’s labor for many years. It is presumed by those who have researched this issue, that
the child itself is the asset of the trust established by the birth certificate
and the social security number is the numbering registration of the trust, allowing for the trust’s assets to be tracked. If this information is true (and we believe it is), our children are owned by the state. Each one of us, including our children, are considered assets of “bankrupt” united States Corporation. We are now designated by this government as
“HUMAN RESOURCES” born in a DELIVERY room, delivered to the state of birth by way of the
BIRTH CERTIFICATE for which our INFORMER (our Mother) provides the requested information including the
NAME and SOCIAL SECURITY (or tracking) NUMBER wherewith this bankrupt government is supplied with new
crop of COLLATERAL born each year.
The act is invalid because it imposes on each State an illegal option either to yield a part of its powers reserved by the Tenth Amendment or to give up its share of appropriations under the act. A statute attempting, by imposing conditions upon a general privilege, to exact a waiver of a constitutional right, is null and void.
Harrison vs. St. Louis & San Francisco R.R. Co., 232 U.S. 318; Terral vs. Burke
Construction Co., 257 U.S. 529.
The act is invalid because it sets up a system of government by cooperation between the Federal Government (a Corporation) and certain of the States, not provided by the Constitution. Congress cannot make laws for the States, and it cannot delegate to the States the power to make laws for the United States. In re: Rabrer, 140 U.S. 545; Knickerbocker Ice Co. vs. Stewart, 253 U.S. 149;
Opinion of the Justices, 239 Mass. 606.
The MATERNITY ACT was eventually repealed, but parts of it have been found in other legislative acts. What this
ACT attempted to do was to set up government by appointment, run by bureaucrats with re- delegated authority to tax, which is in itself unconstitutional.
What was once declared unconstitutional by the Supreme Court of this nation in the past should be upheld in a court challenge today. The constitution has not changed. What has changed is the way this government views human life. Today we are defined as HUMAN RESOURCES, believed to be owned by the government. The government now wants us, as individuals, to be tagged and tracked. Government mandated or legislated National I.D., which is unconstitutional. Federal jurisdiction to legislate for the several states does not exist and could never survive a court challenge as shown above. Writing letters to
elected public servants will not save us when we all know their agenda does not include serving those who placed them in power (servitude).
Perhaps the 10th Amendment of the federal constitution guaranteeing states rights will, if challenged, when making it known that we as individuals of the several states will not be treated as chattel of the U.S. government. If the federal government believes that they own us, and as such have the right to demand national I.D. cards, and health I.D. cards, which will in truth tag us as we tag our animals, then let them bring forth the documents to prove their authority.
If our God given RIGHTS to life, liberty, freedom and Pursuit of happiness, which were
the foundation upon which this nation was created do not exist, and liberty and freedom
is only an illusion under which the American People
suffer then let the government of this nation come forward and tell the people. But…..if we are judged free, then we should not have to plead or beg before our elected public servants to be treated as such. If, in truth we are not free, then perhaps it is our duty to address this issue forthright and forthwith with the power of the pen and pray the people will waken from their fear and slumber induced by greed.
In 1923, a suit was brought against “federal officials” (corporation) charged with the administration of the Maternity Act, who were citizens of another state, to enjoin them from enforcing it, wherein the plaintiff averred that the act was unconstitutional, and that it’s purpose was to induce the States to yield sovereign rights reserved by them through the federal Constitution’s 10th amendment and not granted to the federal government, and that the burden of the appropriations falls unequally upon the several States held that, as the statute does not require the plaintiff to do or yield anything and no burden is imposed by it other than that of taxation, which falls not on the State but on it’s inhabitants, who are within the federal as well as the state taxing power, the complaint resolves down to the naked contention that Congress has usurped reserved powers of the States by the mere enactment of the statute, though nothing has been, or is to be, done under it without their consent. (Commonwealth of Massachusetts vs. Melton, Secretary of the
Treasury, et.al; Frothingham vs. Mellon, Secretary of the Treasury, et.al.). Mr. Alexander Lincoln,
Assistant Attorney General, argued for the Commonwealth Massachusetts. To wit;
The act is unconstitutional. It purports to vest in agencies of the Federal Government (a Corporation) powers which are almost wholly undefined, in matters relating to maternity and infancy, and to authorize appropriations of federal funds for the purpose of the act.
Many examples may be given and were stated in the debates on the bill in Congress of regulations which
maybe imposed under the act; THE FORCED REGISTRATION OF PREGNANCY, GOVERNMENT
PRENATAL EXAMINATION OF EXPECTANT MOTHERS, RESTRICTIONS OF THE RIGHT OF
A WOMAN TO SECURE THE SERVICES OF A MIDWIFE OR PHYSICIAN OF HER OWN
SELECTION, all are measures to which the people of those States which accept its provisions may be subjected.
There is nothing, which prohibits the payment of subsidies out of Federal appropriations.
INSURANCE OF MOTHERS MAY BE MADE COMPULSORY. THE TEACHING OF BIRTH
CONTROL AND PHYSICAL INSPECTION OF PERSONS ABOUT TO MARRY MAYBE
REQUIRED by Section 4 of the act, the Children’s Bureau is given all necessary powers to cooperate
with the state agencies in the administration of the act. Hence it is given the power of assist in the
plans submitted may provide. As to what those plans shall provide, the final arbiters are the Bureau and the
Board. The FACT THAT IT WAS CONSIDERED NECESSARY IN EXPLICIT TERMS TO PRESERVE FROM
INVASION BY FEDERAL OFFICIALS THE RIGHT OF THE PARENT TO THE CUSTODY AND CARE OF HIS
CHILD AND THE SANCTITY OF HIS HOME SHOWS HOW FAR REACHING ARE THE POWERS WHICH
WERE INTENDED TO BE GRANTED BY T.HE ACT
The act is invalid because it assumes powers not Granted to Congress and Usurps the local police power.
McCulloch vs. Maryland, 4 Wheat. 316, 405; United States vs. Cruickshank, 92 U.S. 542,
In more recent cases, however, the Court has shown that there are limits to the power of Congress to pass legislation purporting to be based on one of the powers expressly granted to Congress which in fact usurps the reserved powers of the States, and that laws showing on their face detailed regulations of matter wholly within the Police power of the States will be held to be unconstitutional although they purport to be passed in the exercise of some constitutional power, Hammer vs. Dagenhart, 247,259 U.S … 44. The act is not made valid by the circumstances that federal powers are to be exercised only with respect to those States which accept the act, for Congress cannot assume, and state legislatures cannot yield, the powers reserved to the States by the Constitution.

By Anna Von Retiz
How many times have you heard references to “the Pope”? All your life there has been a Pope, right? And right along beside that, how many times have you heard references to the Pope as “the Roman Pontiff”—-?
I think I was five when I crawled up on my long-suffering Father’s lap and asked, “What are they talking about when they say the Pope is the Pontiff?”
He rolled his eyes heavenward with an aggrieved expression on his face. I am not sure if it was the result of his reflections about the Pope and the Pontiff or the ongoing ordeal of having to answer my questions every day.
“The Pope,” he explained, “is the leader of the Catholic Church. He tells people what to believe about God and Jesus and the meaning of the Bible. But he has another job, too. As the Pontiff, he decides who owns what and how people do business.”
Good old Dad. That’s what the Pope does, that’s what the Pontiff does. Make what you like of it.
Nothing much has changed in 1200 years.
For those who bother to poke into such things, it is no news that the entire concept of corporations was invented by the Roman Curia, the juridical body serving the Roman Pontiff.
The Curia invented all the different kinds of corporations you are familiar with: trusts, C-corps, S-corps, non-profit corporations, cooperatives, foundations, LLPs and LLC’s and every other permutation of “business structure” you can think of except partnerships and sole proprietorships.
None of these corporations we take for granted actually exist. They are all figments of the imagination and always have been, no matter how solid Exxon and the USA, Inc. and GE may appear.
Just like Bridge and Pinochle and Hearts and Poker are all card games, trusts and C-Corps and cooperatives and foundations are all corporations. Just as the card games are defined by their cards and playing pieces and the “rules of play”, so corporations are similarly defined by their structures (like Boards of Directors and Chief Executive Officers) and their rules of play.
The Roman Curia, under the leadership of the Roman Pontiff, creates and defines and sets up the rules of play for all corporations worldwide. That’s why the Pontiff retains the right to amend or repeal the “laws” of any corporation. It’s his game, under his copyright, and he can do what he likes with it.
Governments in the modern world are all corporations, too. So guess what?
That’s right. The Roman Pontiff gets to repeal or amend any law made by any incorporated government or business.
This has nothing to do with the Pope’s role as the head of the Catholic Church. It’s a separate office and a separate roster of functions and it always has been.
Of course we all expect this one single man to be fair and do what is right by everyone, but past history has shown that expectation to be unfounded. Many Roman Pontiffs have been greedy and self-interested and venal and many corporate government CEO’s have ignored the direction of the Pontiff even though he literally owns the game they are playing.
This results in constant wars and economic hardships and vicious market manipulations and the Pontiff stands there, as Francis is doing now, looking very stiff and stern and tight-lipped.
It’s his game, after all. If we want to play his game and use his corporate structures to define our governments, then we should live by his rules, right? And if not by his rules, then whose?
Americans like to think of ourselves as special and Independent and so on, but our government from its infancy was dependent on the “greater government” of the world beyond our shores. There were certain things — nineteen of them to be exact— that we were ill-prepared to do for ourselves. So our states contracted with the Roman Pontiff and the British King to provide those services for us.
That is how we wound up with a Constitution that allows the foreign federal government corporation the delegated authority to control our money, our trade policies, our relations with the rest of the world, our commercial operations, and our military.
We might as well have included the key to our bathrooms.
And that is the way it is and the way it has been from the time the ink dried on the actual Constitution. It was a flagrant give-away of much of the power and responsibility that is naturally ours in exchange for peace and “good faith” service from the Game Masters.
I leave it to you to figure out to what extent their responsibilities have been honored and disregarded, and also to discern the motives behind the great veneration given to the Constitution. So long as we mindlessly cling to it without insisting on the terms of it being honored by the Federales and their Handlers in Britain and Rome, we enslave ourselves very neatly.
As long as we allow ourselves to be mischaracterized as “citizens” of any stripe and allow our states to be “represented” by incorporated “States of States” like the “State of California”, they have free reign over us without the need to honor the actual Constitution at all.
Remember that the Roman Pontiff and his vassal Monarchs control everything that is incorporated. To be free of them and free of their system of things requires operating your own government as an unincorporated Body Politic–and that is precisely what we are meant to do in this country.
Given this dose of reality, it should not be any mystery why I and other Americans dissatisfied with the “service” we have received, would go to Rome to visit the Roman Pontiff. Upon being presented with the evidence of multiple betrayals, gross Breaches of Trust, and overall mis-administration of the “federal government” it is no wonder that Pope Benedict XVI was overwhelmed and little wonder that Pope Francis is dissatisfied.
What remains to us, as Americans, is to wise up and bring forward our claims against the Federales in no uncertain terms and before the entire world—while restoring our rightful unincorporated government at the county and state levels.
The world that the Roman Pontiff and the British Monarch create and control is a world of lies and half-truths that only Satan could inspire, but it is also a world that depends utterly upon rules and contracts for its existence.
The Roman Pontiff(s) and the British Monarch(s) have, over time, been caught red-handed, pants down around their ankles, operating in gross Breach of Trust, neglect, and dishonesty with regard to the only contract they have with us. Their duplicity, deceit, profit-mongering, and dishonor has turned the entire world into a slave market and been the cause of two World Wars. It’s time for it to stop.
All Americans are called upon to demand that the Roman Pontiff and the British Monarch and their Successors at the UN and in FRANCE, honor our agreement known as The Constitution for the united States of America and withdraw their interference against us and our lawful government –permanently– and cease and desist false claims against our people and our assets.
All people worldwide, most especially the Catholics, are called upon to stand with us and exert the necessary pressure to bring about an end to the sale of bonds based on the assets and labor of living people. This secretive form of enslavement being practiced by the Roman Pontiff and the incorporated governments that serve at his pleasure is a gross affront to decency and Law.
The worldwide prohibition against slavery stands and adding to one’s sins by practicing personage against the innocent and pretending that enslavement of PERSONS is allowable when it results in the enslavement of living men and women, is nothing more than the sophistry with which Satan’s kingdom abounds.
These and similar matters are the content of my communications with Benedict XVI and with Pope Francis alike. To the extent that they accept the necessity of reform and do in good faith, in spirit and in truth, honor their obligations to America and the rest of the world from now on, I shall be their willing servant; to the extent that they continue to avoid the moral and contractual obligations that go with their authority, I shall not lift voice or finger in their support.
Those of you who think that you can avoid dealing with the Roman Pontiff in his role as the ruler of the incorporated world, or persist in the childish idea that the Pope has authority only in the Catholic Church, need to wake up and smell the java. Pope Francis holds two offices which together serve to define the circumstances of our lives—whether we are at peace or at war, live in plenty or in poverty, are enslaved or set free. That being so, it behooves all of us to pay strict attention to everything the Pope/Pontiff says and does—and yes, to hold him accountable.
It also behooves us to hold our incorporated governments’ feet first to the fire and to — in the case of America — operate our own unincorporated government in a responsible fashion.
Here’s another quote from Dad— “Rights go with responsibilities. You can’t have one without the other.”

A step-By-Step Guide to Reclaiming your Personal… FREEDOM!
For Years, they have attempted to Hide from us our Nation’s Godly Law…
Lesson 1: Understanding Contracts / Corporations
My new motto is just say, “KNOW MORE!” (Catch the double meaning?) It’s time to understand what is really going on, open our eyes and take back our country. The best way to do this is to hit “them” where it hurts. Their financial statements! What is the most effective way to make others change? Change your behavior toward them. If you want a child to stop being mean, you simply tell that child that until he plays nicely, you won’t play with him anymore. If that child needs you – he will quickly change his ways. So, we tell the police departments, county sheriff offices, states and the feds that they aren’t playing by the rules of full disclosure and tell them we won’t play with them any more! Now, when they change toward us, we still won’t play with them because they are not cute, little children. They are giant corporations that have nothing to do with lawful government. Read that again: They are GIANT CORPORATIONS that have NOTHING to do with LAWFUL government. And that is the point.
America hasn’t been a sovereign nation with lawful government in more than a century. Some even argue that there never have been lawful governments as “every man is independent of all laws, except those prescribed by nature. He is not bound by any institutions formed by, his fellowman without his consent.” [CRUDEN v. NEALE, 2 N.C. 338 (1796) 2 S.E. 70.] And the key phrase there is WITHOUT HIS CONSENT. You must voluntarily give your consent to enter into contracts with these corporations.
Remember what Nietzsche wrote, “Everything the state says is a lie.” The “state” declares they are a “state” and this is true, but what is a “state?” The STATE OF TEXAS is a sub-corporation of the UNITED STATES which is a corporation operating in commerce for a profit. Now some may ask, “What’s the difference if they operate as a corporation?” Well, if they operated as a not for profit corporation and the stockholders were we the people, then that might be okay. But the fact is that every municipality, school district, public works, state, federal agency and the UNITED STATES operate in commerce for a profit and you and I are NOT the stockholders. These corporations are privately held companies! Think about that for a minute. The entity we call government is actually a corporation: a corporation that is not owned by the American people. Who makes the corporations responsible to the people? Do they watch themselves and never harm anyone? No, we have to go sue XYZ Company because they knew their tires were causing hundreds of deaths, but XYZ Company didn’t want to take responsibility because the “bottom line” was more important to them than human life. Once the system went into corporate status, it ceased to be government.
Before becoming a corporation, no one ever had to register to vote. Now they say that everyone must be registered. This is not true. Try it sometime. Go down to vote in a local election in which you are an inhabitant of that area, but are not registered to vote. Tell them that it is your right to vote and that you don’t have to be registered. Most likely you will be allowed to vote, but they won’t be very fond of you. You may be asking: “Doesn’t ‘registered’ simply mean, ‘signed up’?” Not quite.
When you “register” yourself, you “record formally and exactly … in a list or the like.” Sounds innocent enough. Now, whom do you register with? The registrar. A “registrar” is “an officer who has the custody and charge of keeping of a registry or register.” Some examples of registries are registries of copyrights, deeds, wills, motor vehicles and patents. These all have to do with property, not people. Other registries such as registries of births, deaths, marriages, voter registrations, college registrations and the like all have to do with registering natural people. Now we are going to take a leap. What really is a “registry?” “Generally, a ‘registry’ applies to vessels in foreign commerce, whereas ‘enrollment’ refers to coastwise navigation.” When we register ourselves, we are saying that we are vessels in foreign commerce! Sounds ridiculous doesn’t it? But that is why our names magically become capitalized on all of the various registrations: military, voting, birth certificates, death certificates, credit cards, etc. (This essay presumes that you have an understanding of the all capitalized, fictional name vs. proper names that only have the first letter capitalized.) All vessels/ships have capitalized names.
After registering, we are no longer dealt with as natural living souls, but as vessels operating in foreign commerce. What is the “foreign commerce” in which we are operating?” Corporate commerce. Corporations cannot do business with natural beings, so we enter their jurisdiction to do business with corporations when we become a vessel because a vessel is not a natural being. A vessel is a fiction just as a corporation is a fiction and now the two fictions are capable of transacting business. This all ties in with the flag law we’ve been studying. Many people for years now have said that we are under maritime law and had us study maritime/admiralty law for court. After all, the flag flown in all of the courts is a military flag and therefore the law they are advertising by that flag is admiralty. So we are viewed as vessels because we registered as such. We are all vessels in a sea of commerce and all courts are commercial courts for commercial fictions, not lawful Common Law courts for real people.
Okay, now we are a vessel. A vessel enters contracts with other vessels under law of the flag. If we don’t like the laws their flag represents, then we do not contract with that other vessel. The flag is your warning, of what laws will have control of the contract. When you submit a contract (which is itself a vessel) where is your flag? If your contract does not display a flag, then you are tacitly submitting to the laws of their flag. But you say there is no flag displayed on their contract. Right, and wrong. There is no flag on the face of the contract, but there is a flag somewhere in their building or in front of their building. Every bank displays a UNITED STATES flag (not an American flag), most large corporations have the corporate UNITED STATES flag, the corporate STATE flag and their companies own corporate flag flying in front of their buildings. Haven’t you ever wondered why big corporations have their own flags? These represent the codes, rules and regulations that govern their contracts. My kid’s college is a good example – all three flags fly right in front of the Bible building for goodness sake! It is astounding how they disclose their intentions and we haven’t a clue as to what is really going on.
Again, some one will most likely ask, “What is wrong with these flags?” Good question, BIG answer. These flags are for corporations that abide by rules, codes and regulations – NOT LAWS. Allow me an analogy. What corporate name pops into your head when I tell you to think of a L A R G E corporation? Okay, keep that big 500-club name in mind during the following analogy.
ANALOGY: After four grueling interviews with multiple tests, you finally land that job at the BIG Company. The boss sends you down to Human Resources to fill out paper work. One of the forms you must sign is an acknowledgement form for an Employee Handbook that states you have received, understand and will abide by the rules, codes and regulations of the corporation. Some of those rules will deal with dress code, tobacco usage, protocols, harassment, sick time, vacation pay and even disciplinary actions. Excitedly, you sign the acknowledgement (contract) and start work bright and early Monday morning. You are in your finest suit with shoes polished and it’s a real good hair day. I, your best friend, show up to take you out for a celebration lunch. I work for myself though doing landscaping and I’m in my usual attire: overalls, t-shirt and work boots. This outfit doesn’t meet the standards of the company’s dress code and your coworkers look at me kind of funny, but I do NOT work for this company, nor did I agree to abide by its dress code, so they can not tell me how to dress because they have no jurisdiction – no contract with me.
Now, what you must understand is that the “government” is no more than a private corporation. They have corporate codes, rules and regulations for their corporate employees just as that big 500 Company did in our analogy. Since these codes are not laws, why does everyone follow them as if they were law? Why does the corporate “government” think you must follow their codes, rules and regulations? The reason is because you say you are an employee. You state that you are an employee of the UNITED STATES every time you file a Form 1040 with the IRS as that form is only for employees. The IRS takes you at your word and treats you as an employee. The same is true for STATE taxation forms. You also assert that you are a UNITED STATES corporate employee every time you answer yes to the question, “Are you a United States citizen?” How many times have we done that, maybe 20 or more? Think of all of the forms you have signed that ask that very question: W-4s, I-9s, passports, drivers licenses, job applications, school registrations, credit card applications, Brady Bill forms … the list is endless. United States (corporate) citizens are subject to all of the codes, rules and regulations of the company. If you claim national citizenship, please remember that America or your state is the nation to claim-NOT the UNITED STATES corporation!
Personally, I am an inhabitant of Texas and my citizenship is in Heaven.
The bottom line is that when we are dealing with corporations, we are dealing with contracts [Erie Railroad vs. Thompkins]. Just as I did not have a contract with the big 500 Company and did not have to adhere to its dress code, I don’t have a contract with the UNITED STATES corporation so I don’t have to adhere to their employee codes. Everything is by contract. Even the courts are corporations and operate by contract. Everything offered to you either verbally or in writing is a new offer of contract. Think, about these examples and start noticing how many times each day you get offers of contracts: a traffic ticket, a parking ticket, a code enforcement violation for your yard not being mowed, a building permit, a jury duty notice, a notice or bill for property taxes, a bill to re-register you car, a notice or bill for state or federal taxes, a notice from your bank or credit card company that there will be higher charges for late payments, etc., the list is eternal because everything between you and a corporation is an offer of contract.
The good news is that all contracts can be accepted or REJECTED. Within a 72-hour period under the Truth in Lending Act, you can reject an offer of contract. This includes rescinding contracts that you accepted and for whatever reason have changed your mind about accepting. What happens when a police officer pulls you over and gives you a ticket? Do you have a choice as to whether or not you are going to sign that ticket? Of course not! Do you even have the choice as to how you are going to sign the ticket? Not anymore. My brother Steve was stopped last week and he called me to ask how he should sign the ticket. Steve was ready when the police officer returned and handed him the ticket, but the officer told Steve to sign his name and only his name. Wow! Forced contracts under threat, duress and coercion. Is this the land of the free?
It’s decision time. If we start rejecting all offers of contract that demand “money” out of our pockets, we will hit them were it hurts. Eventually they will have no choice but to shut their doors as would any business whose sales have dropped off. The only difference between the corporate “government” and your local five and dime is that you actually get something in return for your “money” at the local five and dime.
For those of you that still believe we have to support our “government” through taxation, I simply point you to Ronald Reagan’s Grace Commission Report of 1984:
100% of what is collected is absorbed solely by interest on the Federal Debt and by Federal transfer payments. In other words, all individual income tax revenues are gone before one nickel is spent on the services taxpayers expect from government.
This country operates today on the same sources of revenue as it did prior to the income tax -“duties” or “imposts” on imported goods and “excise” taxes on domestic goods that are nonessential items. This is all the revenue required to run the “government.”
The next standard objection is a book in itself and requires a good deal of research to understand, but I want to try to briefly answer one more objection that most people of good moral character will raise in regard to the Federal debt. That objection/question is: “Don’t we have to pay our debts?” If this were an honest debt, that you or I incurred and agreed to pay, then by all means the answer would be an overwhelming YES. However, that is not the case with the Federal debt. The Federal is the UNITED STATES corporation, again, a privately held company that artificially created this outrageous debt and then made you and I believe we were responsible to pay their debts for them. The debt is what the corporate owners created and lent back to their sub-corporations. It’s not even a real debt
– it’s FRAUD (which coincidentally stands for Federal Reserve Accounting Unit Denominations). If that big 500 corporation from our analogy came to you and said, “Hey, we need your help in getting rid of our debt,” you may feel a modicum of sympathy for the corporation, but would you pay their debts for them? NO WAY. Then why are you paying this private company’s artificial and fraudulent debt simply because they titled their corporation “UNITED STATES?”
The corporate “government” is nothing more than a pyramid scam leaching off of the hard working productive sector. Back to my new motto – just say “KNOW MORE!”
All definitions are from [BLACKS LAW DICTIONARY Sixth Edition].
The following accounts should help you understand the point of this essay – everything is about contracts!
Contract Story #1: In February of 2000, 1 was on my way to visit my mom in New Mexico. She just had emergency surgery and needed someone to look after her. The doctors explained that there were heart complications, so I rushed to her side. I, unfortunately, am the queen of tickets, so now “rushing” to me equates to 5 miles over the posted limit. The last thing I wanted was to prolong the trip by having a police officer pull me over. But a lesson was in the making and sure enough a Texas Highway Patrol had nothing better to do than harass me. He badgered me into telling him why I was in a hurry, he proceeded to verify my story by calling my mother AT THE HOSPITAL (as if she didn’t have enough to worry about – she almost lost her life the day before) and then he still writes me a ticket and not for five miles over, but ten!
So I write the judge a letter explaining why we don’t have joinder and I ask him to answer a few questions. Without knowing it, I had rejected his offer of contract. I don’t show up by the date allowed, so the nice judge writes me a letter of extension and gives me two more weeks to appear. I call him and ask him what law he is using to prosecute the case. He doesn’t even understand the question, so I say, “Is it Admiralty, Maritime, Common, Statutory, UCC, what?” To which he replies, “it’s anything I want it to be.” Well that narrows things down, doesn’t it? I then ask him if this is a civil or criminal matter and he says it’s both. So now I don’t have a clue what law to study in order to fight this, nor do I really understand what I’m being charged under. During this phone conversation the judge tells me he isn’t going to have time to go over all of this in person when I come down. I tell him that I am coming down to fight this and that he may want to have the county attorney help him look over the questions in my letter. He didn’t take too kindly to that suggestion. He also said that he didn’t even have a flag in his chambers, so not to worry about jurisdiction.
The day comes to appear in the judge’s chambers to “talk” about the ticket. Wouldn’t you know it; there is a tiny flag in the penholder on the judge’s desk. Well I’ll be, no flag, huh?” There is also a county attorney that has to be present before the judge will allow my husband and I into his chambers. I begin by holding my flag, handing the judge a 4-page letter and telling, him that this is a “Special, not General, Appearance.” The letter explains why the Court and I don’t have joinder. The next twenty minutes is a jurisdictional tug-o-war in which the judge and county attorney, try in earnest to let me to plea including, the judge telling me that he is going to enter a plea for me, to which I responded with, “Judge, you can’t practice law from the bench.” The county attorney finally knows I’m not going to give in, so he asks, “Young lady, do you have a drivers license?” I said, “Yes sir, unfortunately I do.” He then turns to the judge and says, “Judge, she has appeared before you today and she has a drivers license, so she has waived her rights.” I waived my rights????
You know that light bulb that goes off over the heads of the cartoon characters when they get a great idea? At that very moment, that same light bulb appeared over my head. I realized that it was ALL ABOUT CONTRACTS! Thinking quickly, I turned to the judge and asked him to remind the county attorney that I had reserved my rights on the face of the ticket and that I had made a “special appearance” under threat of imprisonment which in no way waives my rights.
The county attorney then asked the judge to grant a continuance so that he could review my 4-page letter. The judge did so and told me to return a month later. I got home and recounted the story for a friend of mine. The friend said, oh Ann, you just gave them jurisdiction, sit down right now and write that judge and tell him you didn’t agree to that continuance. I did just that and told the judge that I wasn’t coming back on that date or any other date. This letter was a bit different. Instead of asking him to dismiss the ticket, which sounds as if I am granting jurisdiction, I demanded him to immediately cease and desist the proceedings under the color-of-law against the Sovereign.
Well, it has been two years and no warrants were ever issued for my arrest. Not only did I have two “insider” friends check to see if warrants were put out on me, but I was arrested (most of the best people are!!!) in December of 2001 on a contempt charge and no outstanding, warrants were on my record. The contempt charge is what I got for trying to help a friend in court. Don’t go into their court if you can help it! I know that sometimes it’s unavoidable and even necessary. You are granting jurisdiction just by being there if you don’t know exactly how to challenge it. Please don’t play their game on their field. They have the home court advantage and the guns to back it up when they feel like it.
Contract Story #2: In 1999, 1 was attempting to help the same friend in story #1. The city animal control division informed him that he couldn’t have all of the animals he was feeding and housing. We, being the good, law abiding people we are, wrote a letter to the judge inquiring as to how the city’s codes could violate the Constitution. There was no response to the letter, so after about a month, we began to inquire as to when a response would be forthcoming. As it turned out, the judge had given the letter to the city attorney and we wound up in her office discussing the matter.
My friend asked questions, while I tape-recorded the conversation and one of his witnesses testified to the city attorney that animal control had actually gone into my friend’s yard and taken some of the animals. The conversation eventually came to the Constitution and flag law. My friend asked what laws the city went by since we believed their codes were in direct violation of the Constitution, at which point the city attorney became visibly upset and practically yelled at my friend. She said, “Mr. Darlak, we go by the CITY OF ABILENE laws, the STATE OF TEXAS laws and the UNITED STATES laws.”
As you would assume, we left that meeting in a very confused state. It took more than a year for us to understand what the city attorney had meant by her statement. She said that the city abides by CORPORATE codes. Since corporate codes are all about contract and we all have the right to contract, the city codes do not abrogate the Constitution, but she couldn’t/wouldn’t disclose that to us.
That is their game, they get you to contract and then you’re stuck, unless you know how to reject their offers of contract. Please retrain your thought processes!!! What you and I were taught was government is nothing more than a privately held corporation! And what you and I were taught were laws are nothing more than corporate codes, rules and regulations that have nothing to do with living souls unless you work as an employee for that company.

It’s fair to ask who’s pulling the strings here, and if President Trump will cut them.
“Don’t Be a Puppet: Pull Back the Curtain on Violent Extremism,” the
Federal Bureau of Investigation advises visitors to its website designed to counter radicalization and recruitment of young people by enemies foreign and domestic.
“It’s the FBI’s primary responsibility—working with its many partners—to protect the nation from attacks by violent extremists,” the website overview explains. “One important way to do that is to keep young people—the future of our country—from embracing violent extremist ideologies in the first place. This website is designed to help do just that. Built by the FBI in consultation with community leaders and other partners, it uses a series of interactive materials to educate teens on the destructive nature of violent extremism and to encourage them to think critically about its messages and goals.”
The home page links to six different categories. One is germane to the purpose of this report, “What are Known Violent Extremist Groups?” subdivided into two categories: International and Domestic.
That last one is what I want to focus on. That’s because it’s of special interest to Constitution advocates who have seen their efforts and character tarred in past “
fusion center” efforts relying on smears from Southern Poverty Law Center and other totalitarianism-promoting groups. We’ve further seen, for years,
SPLC characterizing Oath Keepers as a “hate” group.
So the FBI further breaks down domestic extremist “threats” as: Sovereign citizen extremists; Abortion extremists; Animal rights and environmental extremists; Militia extremists; Anarchist extremists; and White supremacy extremists.
Curious. Absent from the radar are communists and domestic Islamist groups. And evidently, George Soros-affiliated “Women’s March” partners, along with #DisruptJ20 radicals and black separatist and reconquista agitators are also of no concern.
So let’s cut to the chase and see who really bears special scrutiny, in the eyes of the FBI, “militia extremists”:
What They Believe: A militia is a group of citizens who come together to protect the country, usually during an emergency. Some militia extremists, however, seek to violently attack or overthrow the U.S. government. Often calling themselves “patriots,” they believe the government has become corrupt, has overstepped its constitutional limits, or has not been able to protect the country against global dangers.
As far as the first and third sentences, what is there to disagree with, or that’s “extreme”? So the FBI need to elaborate on the second sentence about “violent attacks”:
Who or What They Target: Violent militia extremists mainly target those they believe could violate their constitutional rights, such as police officers and judges. In one 2010 case, a Michigan militia group planned to kill a police officer and later attack the parade of cars in the funeral, hoping to start a large battle. The FBI and its partners stopped them from carrying out their plan.
What they’re referring to is the Hutaree case. That’s the one where the federal judge dismissed all the terror charges against seven defendants, and accepted guilty pleas with sentences for time served for three defendants charged with machine gun possession. That means the FBI is wrong to represent the allegations as fact.
That’s it? That’s what’s being singled out to illustrate the “militia extremist” threat?
Let’s hope the Trump administration soon gets a handle on this kind of taxpayer-funded nonsense. Let’s hope it cuts the strings of bureaucratic puppets still engaged in a propaganda agenda to portray patriots as threats.

“Most Germans, so far as I could see, did not seem to mind that their personal freedom had been taken away, that so much of their splendid culture was being destroyed and replaced with a mindless barbarism, or that their life and work were being regimented to a degree never before experienced even by a people accustomed for generations to a great deal of regimentation … On the whole, people did not seem to feel that they were being cowed and held down by an unscrupulous tyranny. On the contrary, they appeared to support it with genuine enthusiasm.” ― William L. Shirer, The Nightmare Years 1930-40
For too long now, the American people have allowed themselves to be persuaded that the government’s job is to take care of us: to feed us, clothe us, house us, educate us, raise our children, heal our infirmities, manage our finances, protect us from our enemies, guard us against all dangers (real and imaginary), and provide for our every need.
Where Americans go wrong is in failing to recognize that there’s always a catch to such devil’s bargains purportedly carried out for the good of all society.
You want free education for your children? The government can take care of it. In exchange for free public schools, however, your children will be molded and indoctrinated into compliant, obedient citizens who reflect the government’s values rather than your own.
You want free health care? The government can take care of that, too. In exchange, your medical decisions—how you live and die—will ultimately be determined by corporations to whom you are little more than a line item impacting their profit and loss margins.
You want to be insulated from all things that might cause offense? That’s not a problem for the government. Its thought police will use hate crime laws to criminalize speech, thought and actions that may be politically incorrect.
You want a guarantee of safety? Sure, but your local police will also have to be militarized and trained in battlefield tactics, your communities and communications will be subjected to round-the-clock surveillance, and you—the citizenry—will be treated as suspects and enemy combatants.
You want to root out domestic extremism and terrorism? That’s just fine. But in the process of identifying and targeting terrorists, the government will have the power to label anyone who disagrees with its policies as an extremist/terrorist and subject them to indefinite detentions.
Are you starting to get the picture?
This is the terrible price—the loss of our freedoms and the enslavement of future generations—that must eventually be paid for the goods and services rendered by a government whose priorities are the acquisition of ever-more power, control and money.
As the old adage warns: “A government big enough to give you everything you want is a government big enough to take away everything that you have.”
Unfortunately, we’ve been on the receiving end of the government’s taxpayer-funded handouts—and its deceptively well-intended dictates—for so long that many Americans have forgotten what it is to think for themselves, provide for themselves, and govern themselves.
Indeed, this age of entitlement is a far cry from the kind of constitutional republic America’s founders envisioned.
Gone is the proud, independent-minded, pioneering spirit of early Americans like my parents who rejected what they called “hand-outs,” worked hard for whatever they had, protected their homes and families, and believed the government’s job was to govern based on the consent of the governed and not dictate.
Contrast those fiercely-independent, early Americans who took to heart James Madison’s admonition to distrust all those in power with today’s citizens who not only expect the government to care for their needs but have blindly entrusted the government with vast, growing powers.
By giving the government the green light to act in loco parentis and treat the citizenry as children in need of caretakers, “we the people” have allowed ourselves to be demoted and infantilized, reduced from knowledgeable, independent-minded, capable masters of a republic to wayward, undisciplined, dependent, vulnerable children incapable of caring for ourselves.
It’s time to grow up.
Incredibly, despite the fact that we allowed the government to become all-knowing, all-powerful and all-mighty in the mistaken belief that it would make our lives safer, easier and more affluent, we’re still shocked when that power and might is used against us.
It’s time to stop being so gullible and so trusting.
Even when the headlines blare out the news about SWAT team raids gone awry, police shootings of unarmed citizens, roadside cavity searches of young women, children being shackled and tasered, and Americans jailed for profit in private prisons, we still somehow maintain our state of denial until suddenly we’re the ones in the firing line being treated like suspects and criminals, having our skulls cracked, our doors smashed, our pets shot, our children terrorized, and our loved ones jailed for non-offenses.
It’s time to remove those rose-colored, partisan-tinted glasses and wake up to the fact that our nation of sheep has given rise to a government of wolves.
Even though, deep down, we have suspected that the system is run by an elite who views the citizenry as little more than cattle destined for the slaughterhouse, we’re still shocked to find ourselves treated like slaves and economic units.
How could we not have seen it coming?
How long has the writing been on the wall?
How could we have been so blind, deaf and dumb to the warnings all around us?
Unfortunately, it happens this way in every age, in every place where freedom falls and tyranny flourishes.
As Aldous Huxley recognized in his foreword to Brave New World: “A really efficient totalitarian state would be one in which the all-powerful executive of political bosses and their army of managers control a population of slaves who do not have to coerced, because they love their servitude. To make them love it is the task assigned, in present-day totalitarian states, to ministries of propaganda, newspaper editors and schoolteachers.”
This is how the seeds of authoritarianism are planted and watered and cultivated into aggressive, invasive growths that can quickly dominate an environment.
Remember, tyrants don’t always come to power in a show of force. Often, they sweet-talk their way to absolute power, buoyed along by a wave of populist demand for someone to save the country from economic, military and political crises.
As historian Jim Powell writes for Forbes:
Hitler didn’t take over a small government with an effective separation of enumerated, delegated and limited powers. He took over a large welfare state… He dealt with unemployment by introducing forced labor for both men and women. Government control of the economy made it virtually impossible for anyone to seriously threaten his regime. Hitler added secret police, death camps and another war machine. The German educational system, which had inspired so many American progressives, played a major role in all this… the government gained complete control of schools and universities, and their top priority was teaching obedience. The professorial elite promoted collectivism. The highest calling was working for the government.
It can easily happen here.
In fact, the early signs of this downshift are all around us if you only know where to look.
You can smell it in the air: there’s danger coming. A recent New Yorker article reveals the lengths some of the wealthiest in America are going to in order to survive an apocalyptic breakdown of society: isolated refuges, bunkers, gas masks, generators, solar panels, ammunition, etc.
You can see it in the changes taking place all around you: the government is preparing for something ominous. For example, the Pentagon is using a dystopian training video to prepare special forces to deal with the urban challenges of megacities: criminal networks, illicit economies, decentralized syndicates of crime, substandard infrastructure, religious and ethnic tensions, impoverishment, economic inequality, protesters, slums, open landfills, over-burdened sewers, and a “growing mass of unemployed.”
You can hear it in the news coming out of the independent media: the Executive, Legislative and Judicial Branches have already weakened our long-established bulwarks against tyranny by their constant undermining of the Constitution and the president’s amassing of imperial power.
We are no longer a constitutional republic.
The American dream is turning into a living nightmare.
We are fast moving towards full-blown fascism.
So what’s the answer?
The powers that be can—and will—continue to distract us with electronic gadgets and entertainment news, they can seduce us with promises they have no intention of keeping, they can drug us with politics packaged to resemble religion, and they can use the schools to breed a populace of compliant slaves.
In the end, however, the choice of whether to keep drinking the Kool-Aid or reject the false prophets and promises of the police state—a.k.a. fascism or totalitarianism or tyranny—rests with “we the people.”
After all, as I make clear in my book Battlefield America: The War on the American People, it was “we the people” who struck this devil’s bargain in the first place, trading our liberties for dubious promises of prosperity, security and advancement.
Through our inaction, our apathy and our unwillingness to do the hard work of holding the government accountable, perhaps “we the people” have been the greatest menace to freedom.
Perhaps all of this is our fault.
My parents’ advice was that if you made a mess, you had to clean it up.
No one else is going to clean this mess up for us, certainly not anyone on the government’s payroll.
As Jim Powell rightly concludes: “Ultimately, liberty can be protected only if people care enough to fight for it, because everywhere governments push for more power, and they never give it up willingly.”
So let’s stop buying into the fairytale that politicians are saviors, capable of fixing what’s wrong with our communities and our lives.
Let’s stop expecting the government to solve all our problems.
Stop playing the partisan game that paints anyone not of your political persuasion as evil.
Stop defending the insanity of an immoral system of government that sees nothing wrong with bombing innocent civilians, jailing innocent citizens, and treating human beings as little more than cattle.
Stop validating a system of laws, tactics and policies that are illegitimate, egregious or blatantly unconstitutional.
While you’re at it, start taking responsibility for your lives—and your freedoms—again. And maybe, just maybe, there will be some hope for tomorrow.

It’s the Banks!
January 24th, 2017 by olddog
PLEASE READ OLDDOGS COMMENTS FOLLOWING THIS ARTICLE
By Anna Von Reitz
The banks control the governments, not the other way around. It has been this way for 150 years in Britain, the Commonwealth countries, the US, Germany, most of Europe, most of Asia, most of Africa…. and when a government tries to assert itself and make its own decisions and adopt its own currency for the benefit of its own people, as Libya’s government did and as Iran’s government has, it is promptly attacked by all the other governments. Why? Because the banks run the governments as storefront governmental services corporations, and the banks like it that way.
It gives them a free hand and world dominance. They get to use the resources of the entire planet any way they please. They get to regulate and de-regulate themselves in whatever way is most advantageous to them. Forget the good of the people or the country they are supposed to be representing.
Just look at what FDR did to THE VIRGINIA COLONY CORPORATION when he shut it down and opened THE UNITED STATES, INC.? And when he bankrupted the UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, INC.? These were predatory corporate take-overs and mergers—- and we all paid for them.
Look at what the Federal Reserve Banks did to the American states and people during the Depression? The suffering and losses that the American states and people endured were enjoyed as benefits and bargains by the perpetrators of the artificial Boom of the 1920’s and the same self-interested men glutted even more profit from the Bust of the Great Depression.
Those responsible, including FDR, should have been tried as criminals, not lauded as heroes; the people were not sophisticated enough to recognize what the banks and their willing drones, the politicians, had foisted off on them. Then as now, they slumbered on, secure in the comforting but false assumption that this was their government and their government wouldn’t harm them.
Let’s not forget the sanctimonious role of the members of the Bar Associations colluding with the banks and their sub rosa employees, the politicians— papering everything over and reassuring the public that it was all “legal” and proper.
Perhaps that was the death-knell of sanity in America, when the members of the Bar started calling everything “legal” and not enough voices objected.
It signaled that the American people no longer remembered the difference between “lawful” — the Law of the Land — and “legal” — the Law of the Sea.
Another death knell came when people started being confused between the “people of the United States” and “citizens of the United States”, and millions in a Zombie-like trance, beguiled and trusting what they believed to be their own dear government, agreed and said, yes, we are citizens….
At each juncture the perpetrators eased in and raped the sleeping Body Politic.
The banks and their buddies have run rampant for a century and a half and despite all the miseries and expense of constant wars, despite the loss of millions of our sons and daughters, despite the malaise of our economy, the burgeoning welfare class, the press-ganging of our Mothers and daughters to work as second wage earners merely to scrape by, the merciless inflation of the only currency available for use, the increasingly reckless, arrogant, coercive, and abusive attitude of the quote-unquote “government”—- we all managed to stagger along, just barely, kept in constant fear of the Internal Revenue Service on one hand, and predatory law suits on the other.
Here, in the richest country on Earth, supposedly living the good life in the victorious bastion of Freedom— we have been enslaved and swindled by our employees, bankers, and lawyers on a crime spree that would make Ramses of Egypt blush.
Quadrillions of dollars-worth of actual hard assets, gold and silver, jewels and art work, artifacts and precious documents, are on deposit with these same banks. These riches belong to people who are the beneficiaries of the “Historic Trusts”. These trust deposits are supposed to be managed by Trustees, who are appointed to their role or who inherit the positions, sometimes for many generations.
Instead of honoring their obligation to the Depositors, the banks are holding onto the assets of the Historic Trusts and refusing to allow the lawful Trustees to access these assets and use them as the Donors stipulated. The banks are acting as self-interested robbers—again—pure and simple.
The oldest Historic Trusts were founded in late Antiquity, at the time of the Roman collapse. Through the Dark Ages and well into the Renaissance, Historic Trusts were used to collect, protect, and transfer the wealth of men and organizations. By far the most common and among the richest Historic Trusts are those founded by Spanish Conquistadors and by the Spanish Monarchs through the early 1800’s.
These vast depositories of actual asset wealth were, for the most part, passed on by the original owners for the benefit of places and people, including their own families, home towns, favorite places, charities, churches, and even their professions…. and are today ear-marked by the current Trustees and Beneficiaries for the benefit of all Mankind.
The bankers have two-blocked all effort to secure the release of these vast stores of assets. They have pitilessly seen the photos of starving children in Africa and called them, “Monkeys”. They have swathed themselves in silk suits and fur and lived in the finest homes and considered themselves very wise and superior to the Common Man, who they have referred to as, “Livestock”.
They have self-righteously donated dribs and drabs to charity and special causes, most of them calculated to benefit the banks and their pet projects, or used to promote their own government storefronts, or to pay off politicians, or to reward their faithful servants in the Bar Associations. They’ve made themselves out to be great philanthropists– using money they stole or coerced or gained by enslaving and making the lives of others miserable. And via the spilled blood of the innocent slaughtered in wars for profit.
This is how we have the spectacle of the World Bank, IBRD, and others caught red-handed with gold and other assets confiscated from our grandparents and great-grandparents —– pretending that this gold just appeared out of nowhere in their coffers and also pretending that they don’t know where it came from.
We know where it came from. For starters, it came from my Grandmother’s wedding ring, twisted off of her finger by foreign commercial mercenaries employed by FDR.
Observe how the World Bank and IBRD tried to wash their guilty hands by offering to give our gold away to the rest of the world?
And that is just $387 billion-worth. That’s chump change.
The failure of the World Bank/IBRD to return our confiscated gold to us is a tiny, almost trivial bit of the dishonesty that the banks, politicians, and lawyers have nurtured into a festering epidemic– an epidemic of institutionalized corruption that is overwhelming and poisoning the whole planet.
So now they’ve got themselves in a spot. And the propaganda machines just aren’t working anymore. Let’s cover some of the high points.
The US Dollar isn’t worthless paper. It is in fact asset-backed by oil, both crude and refined oil products. That’s why it is called the “Petrodollar”. So let’s get that myth dismissed right now.
The US Dollar also isn’t the American Dollar. Let’s get that nasty confusion cleared up, too. Our Dollar is a unit of exceedingly pure silver. Always has been.
And let’s pop the Gold Bubble, too.
The sudden insist-on-gold mentality among Chinese investors is based on fear encouraged by self-interested sellers of gold—and equally unprincipled Chinese hucksters hoping to make a fortune by running up the worldwide price of gold.
The grandsons of the same men who set up the scam on Jekyll Island have moved their operations to China. Why? — to spring a trap fourteen decades in the making, but simple enough in design:
Collect, confiscate, impound, steal, import, control by hook or by crook all the gold in the world, and then force the grandsons and granddaughters of the people you stole the gold from to buy it back from you at wildly inflated prices. Lie and pretend that the world’s gold reserves are much smaller and therefore more precious than they really are.
Which brings me back to the issue of the Historic Trusts and the quadrillions of dollars-worth of hard assets cashiered away for hundreds of years, all being held captive by the banks that have no right of any kind to hold those assets against the Will of the Depositors, the rights of the Trustees, and the welfare of the Beneficiaries.
There is right now in the Central Bank of Mexico a huge deposit of Spanish gold that belongs to the indigenous peoples, the sons of Spanish pioneers and the daughters of American cowboys now living in the Western United States. It was placed on deposit there are as a humanitarian bequest by the King of Spain, who intended that it be spent on infrastructure and educational programs, hospitals, and all the other things that people throughout this region needed in 1834.
The gold was never delivered because other interests set up new, untrustworthy government storefronts that were not committed to spending the money according to the King’s wishes, so there it sits— more than 150 years later, gathering interest and value every year. It has grown into a very substantial trust, able to support new infrastructure, new industries, new social services, new means of transportation, medical research, cultural preservation, and vast, vast humanitarian relief to some of the poorest of the poor in America— no more photos of Navajo Elders squatting in front of a five gallon pail turned into a dangerous fuming charcoal stove trying to keep warm.
The banks are two-blocking the use of these and similar funds throughout the world because a few insanely greedy individuals refuse to come to an accommodation with the Trustees of the Historic Trusts. They aren’t content to make 2 or 3 or even 10 times profit on the gold they have stolen, confiscated, and impounded. No, they want profits in the neighborhood of 100 times what they have invested. They think they will just sit on the Historic Trusts and outright steal them and nobody will have the resources to bring them to Justice. They think they can discount the actual Trustees, the Beneficiaries— and the Law, by handing off the management responsibility to a Third Party, who they also propose to control and boss around.
Why not? They literally employ — in your name, of course — all the politicians you send to Washington and all the legislators sitting in “State of State” legislatures throughout the country.
All these people you think of as your representatives are literally bought and paid for corporate franchise employees of the banks running the governmental services corporations you have also mistaken to be your lawful government. Their only actual obligation is to make profit for the local “State of State” franchise.
This is their job and they can’t do anything else, because a commercial corporation is a psychopathic entity by definition. The fiduciary deputies of such an organization are allowed to worship only one god—–profit at any cost. That’s the way commercial corporations operate and unknown to you that is what nearly all the county, state, and federal government operations have become: self-interested commercial corporations.
That’s also why banks are the horrible institutions they are. If their Boards of Directors spent one penny that wasn’t aimed at making more profit for the shareholders and investors of the banks, they would not only lose their jobs, they would be sued and hounded and disgraced.
When you talk to the men in charge of the major banks and commercial corporations, they are compulsively fixated on making profit —and too many of them are willing to tear down and ruin the Earth and kill the people on it, all in pursuit of profit—for some numbers on a screen.
If you are sickened by this, and you should be, you will now know for sure that banks, governments, and courts are all in desperate need of reform and the entire concept of the commercial corporation must be revisited. Mankind is profoundly endangered by continuing to shelter psychopathic organizations in our midst. We can no longer turn a blind eye to the social and environmental and human cost of commercial corporations run amok.
Everyone reading this is the heir to a vast fortune, yes, even the entire Earth, is yours and subject to your dominion. Vast stockpiles of gold and riches are set aside for you, because one way or another, everyone on this planet is a beneficiary of one or another of the Historic Trusts.
These are the storehouses of the Lord, set aside for this time. In 2008, Pope Benedict XVI ordered them to be opened. As of 2017, here we still sit, waiting on Francis and the Curia and the Vatican Chancery Court.
There was a final sacrifice in Canaan 2000 years ago. A young man put aside his life for the sake of his friends and his love of the Earth and all Mankind. He paid it as the ransom for all people of all races and all religions forevermore. He paid it for the sheep and for the goats alike. Even the profit-mad bankers. He paid the price of all our debts in all jurisdictions forever. And when I say all debts and all jurisdictions— I mean exactly that: all debts.
Let that sink in.
Not just for Christians. Not just for Hebrews. This was done for all Mankind. Everywhere. Regardless of belief. Regardless of faith. And then, one more extraordinary thing—- having purchased us, he set us free and honored the Law of Heaven.
He set us free from all debts for all time, but to fulfill what is written and to make all things correct, I have presented the Payment Bond and made it effective for one thousand years beginning January 6, 2017 through January 6, 3017. This is for the redemption of the Kingdom of God, and all those NAMED as part of it. This ax fell on the Vatican Chancery Court on the Day of the Three Kings, the traditional day when the kings of the Earth bring their gifts to the King of Heaven.
So now the die is cast, and Pope Francis and his entire organization is held to account for allowing the imposition of debt where none exists, for failure to release the Historic Trusts for the relief of Mankind, for the creation of commercial corporations by the Roman Curia and for allowing these diabolical inventions of the mind to run rampant upon the Earth.
The Indemnity Bond posted for the people of Earth is without limit. The first Set-Off Bond is for $100 billion dollars in silver, renewable as needed. And the Payment Bond, AMRI00003, is good for a thousand years— after which we will have our final Visitation and all will be fulfilled.
I am sorry for all my own sins and apologize to those people I have offended by entitling this series of essays with the tag line: Or, Stop Being Stupid. I think that it is obvious that we and many generations before us have been stupid, dull, slow, gullible, complacent, unwary, and the list goes on. How else have we been so deceived?
I think it is also obvious that, yes, we do have a choice in the matter. We can go on believing the lies and the fairytales— and go on being enslaved in the Land of the Free—- or we can face the facts and jerk awake and ask the questions we need to ask— and foremost among them, how is this even possible?
How have the people of the whole world been deceived, defrauded, and misled for thousands of years? It stands firmly on the record that we have been.
People often say to me, “This has the ring of truth!”
There’s a reason for that. It sounds true because it is true. Once you step back and really think about it, it’s obvious. It’s right in front of our faces. It is written in our history, revealed in our holy books, repeated in our Laws, blazoned across the heavens, and resonating in our DNA. We know the Truth. We just have to admit it to ourselves and then declare it and share it.
Billions of people on this planet are suffering and going without the basics of life for no good reason. Other lives are rendered truncated and miserable, crippled by artificially manufactured scarcity—- lacks deliberately created by banks, governments, and other commercial corporations via unlawful monopolization and manipulation of commodity markets and natural resources.
This is being done to the Heirs of Creation, the Children of the True God, the living people who are owed the benefits of the Historic Trusts regardless of their race, religion, or nation.
It’s time that the banks are brought to “an accommodation” with respect to their activities interfering in the operation of our lawful government and withholding access to the benefit of our trusts both public and private, and the release of the hegemonies they have established to control our lives, our labor and our use of our own natural resources.
It’s time to examine the purposes of banks and other commercial corporations and to question any necessity for their continued existence in their present forms.
We must remember that the Roman Curia created the entire concept of corporations. It is their responsibility to control them and to redefine them as necessary to ensure their proper functioning. When a dream turns into a nightmare and the pet becomes rabid, it’s time for the owners to wake up and either find the cure or put the creature down.
The banks and their government storefronts and the other commercial corporations pillaging the people and raping the planet must be fundamentally and permanently reformed. The Curia is the international body responsible for doing this and the Roman Pontiff is the official responsible for implementing it.
I have waited nine long years for the Curia to address the obvious and pungent problem. I have marked the days since the order was given by Benedict XVI to open the Lord’s storehouses and provide relief to the people of this planet. And now I have presented the Payment Bond to the Vatican Chancery Court.
In all these ways and for all these reasons, Pope Francis and the Roman Curia and the Vatican Chancery Court stand at the epicenter of this essential conflict between the commercial corporations and the beneficiaries of the Divine Trust. As with any trust, the Will of the Donor and the good of the Beneficiaries must be honored by the Trustees.
Otherwise, they must be recognized as False Trustees and ousted for cause.
In the nine years since Benedict gave the order to open the Lord’s storehouses, the people of this planet have continued to suffer in every corner. The Historic Trusts remain in lock-down imposed by the banks, which also refuse to release credit on the interest owed. The Curia shimmy-shuffles back and forth and takes no action to rein in, much less redefine, the limits and objectives of the banks and other commercial corporations. The Vatican Chancery Court likewise hovers in interminable call-waiting status long after the facts have been established and the issues ripened for decision.
As of January 6, the books have been balanced. They must stay balanced for 1,000 years no matter what else anyone may do.

Anna has risked her life for you for years, so don’t you think it’s time you made sure everyone you know gets a copy of this? If ANYONE you send it to gets pissed off at you, simply shut them out of your life, because you will not have one much longer without a hundred million people standing up and getting rid of these psychopaths.

By Michael Gaddy
“The alternate domination of one faction over another, sharpened by the spirit of revenge, natural to party dissension, which in different ages and countries has perpetrated the most horrid enormities, is itself a frightful despotism. But this leads at length to a more formal and permanent despotism. The disorders and miseries which result gradually incline the minds of men to seek security and repose in the absolute power of an individual; and sooner or later the chief of some prevailing faction, more able or more fortunate than his competitors, turns this disposition to the purposes of his own elevation, on the ruins of public liberty.” ~Excerpt from the Farewell Address of George Washington, 1796.
There exists among people two distinct philosophy’s; on one hand, there is the very small minority whose main desire in life is to be left alone to their own devices. They ask not for help or hindrance; they simply wish to be able to succeed or fail on their own abilities, not depending on others for help nor having to defend themselves from those who seek power over them. If they choose to help others along the way they want that idea to arise from their own motives and abilities and not coercion. A very generous attribution would be approximately 8% of the citizens of this country fall into this category.
The other approximately 92% of citizens, whether they find themselves politically on the right or on the left, many times see our Constitution and Bill of Rights as an impediment to their ability to use the coercive force of government to impose their ideas; their values; and their morality on others.
The political left seeks to implement and control a government which will serve as a god-like entity which can be used to forcibly take from those who produce to give to those who don’t. They view this as some divine attribute conferred on them because they have been anointed by some mystical power to confer social justice on the masses. As this purely Marxist belief began to take hold in our country before WWII, basically on the shoulders of the New Deal agenda, even those on the political right saw the attraction to this agenda by the masses and therefore sought to adopt at least part of these socialist policies, not because it fit their political agenda, but because they knew the key to power was the ability to offer more free stuff than the guy in the other party, for to gain the power and coercive forces of government one must convince more of Boobus Americanus to vote for them than vote for their political opponent.
The political right seeks to implement their policies under the guise of national fervor. Perpetual war for perpetual peace provides the platform to grow government exponentially for the purpose of defense—after all—there is a boogie man behind every door—-especially if your beloved government has given that demon tyrant millions of taxpayer dollars to make himself more scary. Since there are demons everywhere, freedoms must be forcibly taken by government just in case somewhere down the road Ignoramus Americanus catches on to the ruse and like our Founders decides a drastic change is needed in the way government is being conducted and decides to exercise the rights to “throw off” such a government as is listed in the Declaration of Independence and replace it with one more attuned to Liberty.
Those on the right also see themselves as the anointed ones, many times referring to their religious beliefs as just cause to dictate to others what they can and cannot do with their own persons and property. The religious beliefs most rejected in history have been those which have been forced on those who do not know what is best for them in the eyes of their elected betters.
Many in our own county cannot see the inconsistency in their belief that government does not have the right to take their private property or close roads to public lands but believe that same government has the right to forcibly dictate what others can or cannot put into their own bodies. Of course most of these folks frequently exercise their right to consume adult beverages, but would use government to force their political/religious beliefs onto others. To paraphrase Thomas Jefferson, if you can’t own yourself, you can never be truly free.
Damn that Constitution and Bill of Rights when it gets in the way of what those righteous folks know is best for the guy down the street. There ought to be a law that ignores the unalienable rights of others, they exclaim, when their beliefs or wishes to impose their values on others is challenged. Meanwhile they weep, wail and gnash their teeth because their political base deteriorates, all the while failing to look their own hypocrisy in the eye.
Bottom line is neither party wants our Constitution and Bill of Rights to be strictly enforced because it would limit the powers of their chosen political party or newly elected candidate and their subsequent ability to force their belief system on those they see as somehow inferior.
If you believe I am incorrect in this assertion, just check out social media and read what those who support Donald Trump want him to do once he is in office. The fact the great majority of actions they want Trump to take are not listed in the powers of the executive means nothing to them. Constitution—- “we don’t need no stinkin’ Constitution, we have the Donald.”
Robert Lefevre offered great insight into this wonderful left-right paradigm.
“There is no other way of explaining the phenomenon. Good men do find their way into government. But having gotten there, they must either perform their function or resign. If they perform their function, they use the government, an agency of compulsively gathered coercive force, to accomplish that function. Inevitably, they hurt someone. This is undoubtedly the reason such a furore is maintained over the necessity for a two-party system. Nothing is said in the Constitution or the Bill of Rights about the necessity of a two-party system. Yet most Americans hold that two parties are necessary.
The reason is obvious. The party in power inevitably employs its friends and well-wishers, and passes laws and enforces proceedings against others not of the same political conviction.
Over a period of time these laws and enforcements build up a body of resistance. The oppression mounts. It may become a public scandal. Finally, the “ins” are ousted and the other party assumes power.
Immediately the process repeats but with alternate emphasis. Those who are “ins” become “outs.” And the newly hired “ins” go to work to cut their friends free from oppression and to visit their vengeance upon those who subscribed to the beliefs of the former “ins.” Then the same iniquities come to pass all over again. Those persecuted change places with the persecutors. And around and around goes the political wheel of chance, with the voting public spinning the wheel.”
As long as the left can blame the problems of the country on the Bush’s, Graham’s and Romney’s of the Republican Party and the right can do the same with the Obama’s, Clinton’s and the Democrats, our Constitution and Bill of Rights will continue to disappear into the sinkhole of history, because freedom and liberty must always take a back seat to two-party politics in the eyes of the two-party power structure.
The problems we face in this country are because we are not following our founding principles, not because a right-wing tyrant or a left-wing tyrant is nesting in the White House or the halls of Congress. Both political parties see a strict adherence to our Constitution as a reduction to their power and ability to coerce. Supporting either party is a death-blow delivered against a small, constitutional, limited government.
IN RIGHTFUL REBEL LIBERTY
This article needs to be read every day until the concept is memorized. However it will never produce results until the people have been educated on the history of governments and their downfalls. That is what it takes to make freedom from tyranny sink in, and empress on their minds that their own tyranny is their self-centeredness. Most people only care about their own problems and ignore their neighbors. There will be no improvement in government until the people, one and all, recognize the importance of protecting everyone’s freedom, and the only way to do that is by having been raised in a godly family that really cares about their neighbors.
Once that feeling of responsibility is removed from society, then it’s every man for his-self. And that is when evil men come in to pillage whole Nations. The first thing evil men do is get control of the Nations currency, then the education of children, then the media industry to hold their control over everyone. Next is the military and law enforcement become their tools for holding their power. And all this time the corporations and politicians have been getting richer and richer, until every man women and child is expected to conform to government rule and not make demands.
It matters not who gets elected because every politician arrives under the power of the real governors of the land; the Investment bankers, Queen of England, and the Pope. These tyrants claim ownership of nearly everything on earth and not until they are eliminated will we be able to re-construct society and heal our land. If you have not been able to realize the presence of an all powerful God, whose objective is to make His Power Know, then all the money and power you may obtain will only weigh you down.
