New Mini-Book in PDF – A Visit at Grandma’s House
I just finished a new mini-book just in time for holiday sharing. People can print it off at home. It’s only 22 pages single-sided, 11 double-sided, large print.
It presents all the most basic and urgent need-to-know information about the overall history and situation in the form of an imaginary visit to Grandma’s House and a sit down conversation with me talking to a young person — a grandson or granddaughter, and explaining it like I do with my own mid-teen to adult grandchildren.
This might be just the ticket for various audiences and needs — like if you need to explain things to your own children or grandchildren.
The information is still dense to pack into 22 pages, but it covers the basics and it is somehow easier to swallow in this format.

A Visit at Grandma’s House
By: Anna Maria Riezinger © All Rights Reserved
10 December 2019 A Visit at Grandma’s House Pretend that you are going over to Grandma’s House this afternoon. You find her wrapped up in an afghan in her favorite chair, sipping a cup of tea. The late afternoon sunshine is making the whole room the color of honey and the peace of her house feels rooted in the peace of Nature itself. She looks up and smiles at you, and she says,
“I need to tell you something, before I forget. Grab a cup and have a sit….” And so you do, and she begins…. “During The War of Independence, three different instruments of government came to exist. They were:
Page 2 of 22 The Union of Colonies. People called it different names. The United Colonies, The United Colonies of America, the United States, and so on, but it was, and is, a Union of families and communities throughout this country. The Union took form via the adoption of The Unanimous Declaration of Independence published on July 4, 1776. Next, came the Federation of States known as The United States of America on September 9, 1776. And finally, came the Confederation of States of States known as the States of America on March 1, 1781. Everything developed from these three (3) unincorporated business structures that were —all three— created by the Second Continental Congress. Much of the history we learn in school concerns only one of these three structures – the States of America. That’s because the Federal Government developed mainly out of the States of America.” She stops and reaches over and hands you a little card with the Official History printed on it, and then resumes. Official History: First Continental Congress met September 5-October 26, 1774, following calls for a general congress from Rhode Island (May 17), Pennsylvania (May 21), New York (May 23), and Massachusetts (June 17). Second Continental Congress met May 10, 1775, by resolution of the First Continental Congress, October 22, 1774; became the Confederation Congress (“United States in Congress Assembled”), March 2, 1781, following ratification of the Articles of Confederation, March 1, 1781. Confederation Congress superseded by the Federal Government, March 4, 1789. “That’s the “flow chart” of what happened to the States of America.
Page 3 of 22 The Union took over the soil jurisdiction—that is, the national jurisdiction of these United States. The United States of America took charge of the international jurisdiction. And the States of America took charge of commercial affairs. However…. The Union and The United States of America didn’t disappear. They operate in separate jurisdictions, and except for a little overlap, they are not within the sphere of the Federal Government at all. The Union and The United States of America are our special concern, and they exist outside the Federal Government construct. That’s what most people don’t understand. Three parts – a Union, a Federation, and a Confederation. The Union and the Federation are naturally separated from the Confederation. Why? Because of the nature of their membership. The Union is made of farm families and communities that have life and breath and substance, soil and crops, docks and parks. It’s physical and unincorporated and sovereign. The Union is populated by living people. The Federation is made of States that have defined, physical borders that are agreed upon, a population of living people called “State Nationals” and a population of people who serve the State Government. They are called “State Citizens”. When they are on duty, performing their tasks, they are operating in the capacity of “Lawful Persons” and as one of the “People” of that State.
Page 4 of 22 The Confederation was made up of business organizations called “States of States” –incorporated entities that exist only on paper, and that conduct commercial business for our States. These States of States and the people working for them, are all conducting business as Legal Persons. So you can see that both the Union and The United States of America – the Federation – deal with actual physical life, communities filled with people, States that have physical borders, while the Confederation is concerned with business transactions and relationships, Legal Persons, and things that exist only on paper—various kinds of corporations. When a Continental Congress is convened, as may be during your lifetime, each State will send a Delegation of State Deputies who are Fiduciary Officers for that State of the Union. They will be required to act according to The Prudent Man Standard while making financial and other decisions for their State and taken together, for the country as a whole. The Continental Congress is the most powerful instrument of the American Government and it is composed entirely of Lawful Persons, known as “People”, doing business for you, the living, breathing population of each state. But as I showed you in that little snippet of Official History, there are other kinds of Congresses, too. There was the Confederation Congress that became the Federal Congress, and the Federation Congress known as The United States of
Page 5 of 22 America in Congress Assembled, and the Union Congress known as The United States Congress, and so on. You have to write everything out, always, to keep it clear, but this much you can be sure of: the Continental Congress is your Congress. It’s the Congress directly serving the people of this country. It last convened March 1, 1781. The United States of America in Congress Assembled conducts business for your States of the Union, and it has met sporadically, most recently in 1965. All the other “Congresses” you can name or that you see referenced in print are spin-offs of the Federal Congress— which is a different bird entirely. Please notice that the various “Congresses” that are in constant session in Washington, DC, don’t serve you and I doubt that they even serve the States of the Union in any legitimate respect. They’ve forgotten who they work for and exist only to make money for themselves. The Federal Congress represents States of States, that is, business organizations, and in today’s world, these are corporations that have been incorporated by foreign governments. They aren’t even our own States of States. These organizations are Legal Persons and they are run by Legal Persons – meaning that they are created on paper, by charters, and articles of incorporation and patents. They have no other physical basis for existence — no borders, no trees, no people, no faces, no feelings, no accountability, either. That’s why they are called “inchoate states” or, properly, “Confederate States”. All this confusion (yes, and deliberate deceit) based on similar names, has developed over the course of two centuries, and it only got worse with the adoption of the Constitutions in 1787, 1789, and 1790.”
Page 6 of 22 Grandma leans back in her chair, looking vaguely relieved to have all that off her chest, but her tea is cold and she stirs herself, blinks, and says, “Come on downstairs. We’ll sit by the fire. I’ll feed you some nachos— how’s that?” She folds up her afghan, heaves a sigh, and trundles toward the stairway. So you follow her downstairs and she stirs up the embers in the grate of her fireplace and you sit in a chair waiting for her to come back out of the kitchen. You already feel like your head is going to explode. She soon appears again with your favorite plate of nachos and a couple cold drinks, and gets comfortable again, staring into the fire for a few moments before she turns her head, and looks straight at you. “This isn’t easy to hear or to understand, I know, but you’ve got to know it and I am counting on you. This is your county. Yours, and while I live, mine. So you have to learn.” She turns back to the fire and you can see her profile edged in the firelight. The nachos help. You begin to feel like you can think again, just as she begins to speak. The States of America Confederation “So, we’ve got three separate things, a Union, a Federation and a Confederation called the States of America, which was one of the three original “instrumentalities” of government established by the Second Continental Congress. And we are going to focus on that last one, the Confederation, because that is where all the problems started.
Page 7 of 22 Each State chartered a “state of state” commercial corporation that was a member of the States of America Confederation. For example, Georgia chartered The State of Georgia, which then functioned as a separate entity and as a member of the States of America Confederation doing commercial business for Georgia. See how that works? You have your State that conducts international trade, and your State then also creates a “State of State” that conducts commercial business. Commerce is business conducted between two incorporated entities. Your State of the Union is not “incorporated”, so it had to charter a State of State to conduct this kind of business. Please Note: [The original States of States that belong to Americans and to our States of the Union all include “the” as part of their Proper Names: The State of Georgia, The State of Massachusetts…. This fact will become important to know later on, so remember it. There are British Territorial Dopplegangers doing business as “the” State of Georgia and Papal-Roman Municipal Dopplegangers doing business as “the” STATE OF GEORGIA to deal with.] “The States of America Confederation was accorded specific duties and functioned in the global realm of commerce It was supposed to function for the benefit of all the State of State members. However…. As a result of the Constitutional Convention, some of the original duties and powers of the States of America Confederation and of The United States of America Federation, both, were soon shared out with King George and the Pope.
Page 8 of 22 The Constitutional Convention Nineteen specific and enumerated “Powers” were “delegated” in total. The delegating was done by the People of the United States – meaning the State Citizens of the respective States of the Union acting by and through The United States of America. The member States chartered all the States of States that were members of the Confederation, so the States had to do the delegating of the “Powers”—some of their own Powers and some of the Powers that were originally assigned to the States of America, too, were delegated away in the process. A grab bag of Powers originally vouchsafed to both the Federation and the Confederation were re-sorted by these new Power-sharing agreements called “Constitutions”. Constitutions are debt agreements, stipulating who does what, and who pays whom for which services, and in this case, they represent the implementation of international treaties as well as service contracts.” Grandma pauses to wet her whistle and push back in her recliner, chews thoughtfully on a corn chip dripping with cheese, gives an ironic smile and shakes her head at you. “It’s amazing,” she says, “what they have gotten away with not teaching you— For example, there were three (3) Constitutions established, one for each of the Subcontractors of The United States of America:
Page 9 of 22 (1) Coming out of the Constitutional Convention, the States of America was to continue to operate and do the lion’s share of the work under the provisions of The Constitution for the united States of America . (2) The British were to operate our Territorial Government under another variation of our name – “the” United States of America – so their Constitution is called: The Constitution of the United States of America . (3) The Pope’s Municipal Government was to operate under another variation of our name “the” United States, so their Constitution is called: The Constitution of the United States . Thus, the “Federal Government” was made up of three Subcontractors, one, two foreign, all owing duty and allegiance to The United States of America — our unincorporated Federation of States.
Page 10 of 22 The United States of America Federation of States __________________________ Federal Government Subcontractors: States of America Confederation [American] United States of America [British] United States [Papal – Roman Municipal] Those are the three branches of the Federal Government, not this horse hooey they feed you in school about “executive, legislative, and judicial branches’—those aren’t branches of anything. Those are functions that all these Subcontractors had. So we had, for example, Federal Courts, operated by the States of America. We had Territorial Courts, operated by the British Territorial Government. We had Municipal Courts, operated by the Papist-Roman Municipal Government. The Civil War And now things get interesting — the States of America Confederation continued to function as one “branch” of the new Federal Government from 1787 to 1860, when it broke in half — North and South. The former members of the South formed the Confederate States of America. A bitter commercial mercenary conflict styled as a “civil war” broke out, with the remaining States of America Confederation members (North) going head to head with the Confederate States of America (South). The British Subcontractors sided with the Northern Confederation, and the Papist-Roman Subcontractors sided with the South. Please Note: None of this directly involved The United States of America nor The United States, as the Union was then called, except that we and our States suffered a lot of damage as a result of the bad decisions and behavior of these Subcontractors.
Page 11 of 22 We should have fired them all and required the other Principals subject to the Constitutions onto the carpet, but in the gross confusion and mass death caused by the American Civil War, the Grand Army of the Republic (GAR) came to power…. and morphed into the United States Army…. We have lived under a mixed military protectorate, awaiting “Reconstruction” of the States of America ever since. The situation, briefly, was this: At the end of hostilities, the Southern was “ruined” and the Northern Confederation was bankrupt– and had been bankrupt since 1863—thus in receivership to foreign creditors. President Lincoln, operating as Commander-in-Chief, turned to the Union Generals and issued the first Executive Order — ever; that action implemented the Lieber Code, General Order 100, which has since morphed into the Hague Conventions. Every President since then has functioned in the same Office, in the same way, by-passing any civilian government, as well as the Municipal Civil Government. Average Americans were never told the business side of things and there was nobody both competent and honest enough left in Washington, DC to tell them. President Lincoln was dead. President Andrew Johnson tried to honor his duty to The United States of America by three times declaring the peace in public, leaving no doubt that our States and People were to be held harmless.
Page 12 of 22 The Army Generals left in power, men like General Grant and General Sherman, had no background in politics or big business or even the history and structure of our government. The leftover members of Congress and newbies issued “Reconstruction Acts” designed to punish the South — which remain in full force and effect and have never been repealed. The foreign subcontractors kept mum. Purportedly, everyone has been waiting for us to get off our rumps and finish the Reconstruction of the States of America, but then, nobody told us that it wasn’t already done, and finished, 150 years ago. This illusion –that the “Reconstruction” was done and over a long time ago, was made possible by the substituting their Territorial States of States for our American States of States, using a simple similar names deceit: they replaced “The State of Georgia” with “the” State of Georgia, and so, the trusting American People thought everything was back to normal and the Reconstruction complete, but no, in fact, the British Monarch had acted in Gross Breach of Trust.” Grandma is a tough old woman, but you can see from small changes in her posture that she is mad – under control, but mad just the same. She leans way forward and pushes another log on the fire, jabbing at it with an iron poker as if she had Queen Victoria’s butt in mind. And maybe Benjamin D’Israeli’s rear end, too. “Too bad they are dead and gone beyond where any earthly harm can touch them,” she finally says, in confirmation of what you were thinking, too. “But, I have faith….yes, I have faith that they will reap all that they have sown, and the good people of the Earth will get their reward, too.”
Page 13 of 22 Stirred up like the fire by the injustice of it all, she stomps off to the kitchen for another plate of nachos. The crookedness of it all is beginning to make sense to you, but you half-dread her coming back and telling you anything more. Strangely, though you are young and hearty compared to her, you feel scared to know what she’s telling you. The enormity and the long term nature of the fraud and betrayal is beginning to open up in your mind and you don’t want it to, but there it is. My Lord, you think, this has been going on for a century and a half? Right in front of us all? Yet, this is Grandma telling you this. Her tongue would snap off if she tried to lie. She comes back too soon, nachos and more drinks on a tray. “This will have to count for supper, I guess,” she says, apologetically. “Except for dessert, of course.” You are already digging in and the chips are loaded down with all your favorite goodies, so it’s not like you are complaining. With a little twinge you notice that she’s not as young as she used to be, a little more wrinkled and faded than you’d like her to be, and not so eager to spend all day in the kitchen. You think, just in passing, that maybe she is telling you all this now for a reason, but she smiles and reaches for her glass and settles back into her corner spot beside the fireplace, having stirred up the fire and poked “Queen Victoria” again. Her voice is beginning to sound tired as she begins.
Page 14 of 22 The Federal Congress “The Congress, still appearing to operate as the Federal Congress, albeit on only two foreign cylinders, also usurped into the vacuum left by the “missing” States of America. From then on, ours has been a story of self-interested deceit on the part of our foreign Subcontractors, betrayal by elected officials, and alternating periods of time when Queen and the Pope have either colluded together to fleece us, or been at odds and scrapped with each other over turf— turf that actually and factually all belongs to us, the States and People doing business as The United States of America—the unincorporated version of The United States of America, that is. The Bounders have named all sorts of corporations after us and our States and our country in their efforts to access and abuse our credit and our Good Names. The Queen’s British Territorial Government which was originally limited to operating our Navy and Commercial Shipping under Trusteeship on the High Seas and Navigable Inland Waterways, and with the care of the Insular States, Possessions, and Territories, insinuated itself into the rest of our military operations and our currency, trade, copyrights, banking and foreign policy. They racketeer money and assets out of Americans through tithes, fees, duties, imposts, improper registration processes, tariffs, excise taxes, hypothecation of debt, claiming that we are co-signers without our knowledge or consent, mortgaging our land, homes, and businesses also without our knowledge or consent, manipulation of our banking and currency, bonding American babies under the False Pretense that they are British Territorial Citizens, and let’s not forget their Internal
Page 15 of 22 Revenue Service and their specious pretension that we all “volunteered” to act as “Withholding Agents” — that is, as Warrant Officers in the British Merchant Marine Service. They also bilk us through bad trade policies and pay offs to their trading partners that hurt us and benefit them. They gain control of our actual natural resources by substituting their Territorial “States of States” (for example, “the” State of Wisconsin for the American States of States (The State of Wisconsin) we are owed. They have illegally conscripted and press-ganged our young men via Selective Service in multiple wars that no competent and authorized “Congress” ever declared. The Pope’s Municipal Government, also called the Civil Government, usurped into operating our postal service, customs houses, patent office, trademarks, securities, stocks, bonds, and what we think of as the Federal Civil Service and Federal Agencies. They use many of the same schemes as the Brits to cheat and abuse Americans and American assets and have their very own “IRS” that pretends that all our “donations” are “gifts” and tithes. They also have their own Municipal STATES OF STATES, doing business as, for example, “the” STATE OF IDAHO, written in all capital letters. Right. Gifts and estate taxes. That’s how they process Municipal Income Taxes. Well, now you know what is “really” going on in Washington, DC — we finally woke up, just in the nick of time, as these freebooters were
Page 16 of 22 about to stage another Civil War on our shores and use it as an excuse to kill as many of us as possible. We, the innocent, if gullible, American States and People, are their Priority Creditors. They thought it would be easier to kills us by the busloads than pay us. Thankfully, the Military, despite many sins, has remained loyal – and with many other nations waking up to find the same ugly circumstance, the United Nations is in no shape to argue. The Governments of the Queen and the Pope are exposed to the entire world as crime syndicates; both have preyed upon the trusting and faithful people of this country. Both the British Monarchs and the Popes have betrayed and breached the sacred trust placed in them and in their governments, and they have done so for six generations. And now…. What to do about it?” There is a long, long pause, while Grandma sits staring into the fire. You hope she has an answer, because you don’t. You are staring, too, but straight out into nowhere and you look overwhelmed when she glances at you. “Don’t worry too much,” Grandma says. “They make their money by keeping up a good reputation. The last thing they want is for the entire rest of the world to discover all this, and see how they’ve mistreated their friends and allies, the gullible Americans. Seeing what they’ve done to us will be a lesson to the entire rest of the world. Nobody will ever respect or trust them or want to do business with them again. If they do anything but make amends, they will be outcasts, and they’ll deserve it.”
Page 17 of 22 She’s tired. You can tell, but she’s still so feisty. So gently mad. She’s bubbling away like a little teapot ready to boil over. She dismisses the thought of them with a small wave of her hand, sniffs, and begins once more. The Restoration “The actual States have not assembled to do business since the Civil War. Obviously, we have to assemble our States in order to reconstruct our States of States and restore the States of America to full function. Accordingly, we have entered into our historical and inherited offices, and sent out the call to the States to assemble and more than forty have answered so far. However, there is a slight hitch…. The Great Fraud and Breach of Trust The Perpetrators responsible for this Deplorable Mess have done their best to “paper us over” and pretend that we don’t exist; they have orchestrated an immoral and illegal campaign forbidden by both the Geneva and Hague Conventions, to convert our population and our assets by misidentifying and mis-characterizing our natural political status and affiliations as Americans. This “genocide on paper” begins almost at birth, with the improper “registration” of American babies as property assets and as “persons” operating as “United States Citizens”. This is followed by bonding and selling the labor contracts of these fictional “United States Citizens” to the Pope and the proliferation at the hands of his Municipal Government of many corporations operating in our names as debt receivers.
Page 18 of 22 Thus both the British Territorial and the Papal Municipal Government have conspired to deliberately steal the identities and assets of millions of Americans, and to falsify records of their actual political status as Americans. And no surprise there, as the Queen acts as the Pope’s Overseer of Commonwealth property, and the British Territorial United States is a Commonwealth. They are literally colluding. In other words, the Pope is responsible both directly and indirectly. He controls the Municipal Government Subcontractor directly, and the Territorial Government Subcontractor indirectly, through the Queen. It all comes back and lays down on his lap like a wet dog, and even though he might try to pretend that this is all now the business of the United Nations, he owns all the member “governmental services corporations” as the majority shareholder in the UN Corporation. So – his fault again. If he tries to stage a Civil War here, he is fighting against himself. This Great Fraud and Breach of Trust against each one of us individually, this deliberate and self-interested misrepresentation of our political status from babyhood onward, has to be addressed as an additional obstacle. It means that we have to individually declare our political status and record it — before we can act in our proper capacity as American State Nationals, and before we can accept our responsibility as American State Citizens. As State Citizens, we occupy the same political status and have the same standing as our ancestors. We can act as “We, the People” again, and we can operate our State Assemblies and re-charter our State of State business organizations.
Page 19 of 22 We can complete the Reconstruction and restore our rightful government. We can restore the lawful government in short order, but only if we wake up and make the effort required to self-govern. We have to educate ourselves and our children and the rest of the world. No more sitting on the sidelines being entertained and dumbed-down. Time to get up and get involved—worldwide; this same evil has impacted virtually every country on Earth and undermined every national government. We have to clean the crooks out of our governments, our churches, and all our institutions and corporations, especially the banks and the securities brokerages without further delay. So—you need to (1) declare and record your proper political status as an American State National; (2) serve Notice on the US Secretary of State; (3) join your State Assembly; (4) begin the process of selfgoverning and exercising your guarantees and rights. And that’s what we all need to do. Assemble our States of the Union, and expose these criminals for what they are. We need to show these dishonest subcontractors what we are made of, once we all understand the game, they’ve played us and how they’ve abused us, while we mistook them as friends and Allies and fought their wars for them and spilled our blood for them.” Grandma falls silent and she’s hunched over like a fist. Then, without another word she snatches up the dishes and stalks into the kitchen, head held high. She has that way, sometimes, of looking like she has a ramrod up her back. Her ancient Yellow Labrador Retriever started the evening lying flat on the floor next to her, but it got too hot for him. Now, hopeful of treats,
Page 20 of 22 he rouses himself and follows her into the warm light filling the kitchen doorway. It’s all so familiar. Grandma’s voice, the burly old dog, the dusky golden darkness of her living room at night, the smell of good food, the clatter of cups and spoons. You know she’s making hot chocolate the old fashioned way, stirring it up in a pot on the stove. You sure didn’t expect all this late breaking news, but you feel oddly happy, as if at last some jagged pieces fit. It’s like getting the diagnosis of a disease. There’s a name for it. And a cure for it. And no Statute of Limitations on Fraud. The dog, having gotten his treats, wanders back out to the living room to collect his pets from you, and you sit there together comfortable and silent, waiting for her to come bustling out of the kitchen, cups of hot chocolate in hand. But when she does appear, it’s not just hot chocolate. She has slabs of your favorite Chocolate Swirl Pound Cake. Did she know you were coming? Was she lying in wait, ready to spring a Pound Cake on you? You sigh. You give Grandma a calculating look. After all, you have some of her blood in your veins. And you weren’t born yesterday. Seems like an unlikely coincidence, dropping by to visit and boom! Chocolate Swirl Pound Cake. Life is tough. “You’re pale,” she says. “Eat up. Lord knows I didn’t give you much for dinner….” “Did you know I was coming to visit today?” “No.” “Did you know you were going to tell me all this today?” “Nope.”
Page 21 of 22 “Is there some reason? I mean, why now? I lived my whole life without knowing any of this….” “Eat your Pound Cake,” she clucks; having inflicted the damage, she administers the cure. Various kinds of bandages, Duck Tape, and cold cream, will, on average, fix almost anything. The rest succumbs to hot chocolate and Pound Cake. Your head is spinning slowly. Declare political status. Record it. Notify US Secretary of State. Notify the world, more like it. Tell the Pope. Tell Queen Victoria. Tell her Great-Great-Granddaughter, too. Start putting Sticky Notes on lockers at work. You are about to start asking questions about the How To and all the rest of it, when you see how tired she looks and that she already knows all the questions beginning to pop up in your mind. “There’s a website and a whole organization forming,” she says. “We have our ducks in order and we are playing to win.” She shoves a business card toward you. It carries the Great Seal of The United States of America and directly under that, a website address: http://www.TheAmericanStatesAssembly.net “We are assembling our States of the Union and taking the Hired Help to task. First the States, then the States of States. We are going to finish that long-delayed Reconstruction, and neither the Pope nor the Queen have a thing to say about it.” As you stagger out her front door and into the night, you wonder about Grandma and you think about the book, The Last Unicorn. Love can drive you to do a lot of things. And even perform miracles.
