04 25 19 For All the Jural Assemblies 52 Committees of Safety



 By Anna Von Reitz

Prior to the start of the Revolutionary War, colonists formed local “committees of safety” to prepare themselves “if trouble comes”, which at that point was brewing.  So they set up networks of Minutemen and pass words and secret storage facilities.

It was in fact the object of the British troops marching on Concord and Lexington to find and secure such a storage of arms and gunpowder and to arrest those presumed responsible for its existence.

There are some people who haven’t noticed the passage of over 200 years and they still think that forming such committees and making such preparations is a sensible and viable response today as it was then.

Let’s be very clear — pitting the might of the US Armed Forces against farmers armed with deer rifles is not a desirable or reasonable option.

Ironically, what sparked the onset of the Revolutionary War was a committee supposedly promoting “safety”.  What landed Schaeffer Cox in jail for 26 years was a “contingency plan” based on a “what if” scenario that never happened.

People who get involved in your Assemblies and who start preaching violence need to be treated to a Bevins Declaration on the spot, and if they persist, you must throw them out on their ears, draw a line, and disassociate yourselves from them. It’s hard, but it’s necessary.

Such people are far more dangerous than the dangers they fear.  Why?  Because they can knowingly or unknowingly provide the open door — the means and excuse — for exactly what they are afraid of.

Those who are so angry and fearful that they sneak around looking over their shoulders and stockpiling weapons need help, but not the kind of help a State Assembly can give them.

In this day and age, we have a different kind of war to fight, a war of Evil in High Places, of middlemen (bankers and politicians and military personnel) usurping the power of lawful national governments, of false information, of deceit, of propaganda, or commodity rigging, of bankruptcy fraud, of judicial corruption, of counterfeiting of currencies, of odious debt…..the list goes on.

The real essence of “war”, even political genocide, takes place on paper now, in board rooms, and in bars and men’s clubs where the low-life scum sit comfortably and discuss their latest plan to squeeze the last drops out of the working classes and how best to mischaracterize the “enemy” — that is, all the honest working people they prey upon —  in the morning paper.

Today’s Committee of Safety consists of those who know the actual law — not the “rule of law” — and keep it.

Today’s Committee of Safety consists of honest alternative journalists who work hard to expose the men behind the curtains.

Today’s heroes are those who are competent to go into courts and slay paper dragons.

Today’s heroes are the military personnel who know the truth and who won’t follow illegal and immoral orders.

Today’s heroes are those who educate themselves and shine up their Shinola Sensors and share the necessary information by word of mouth.

There’s nothing wrong with setting aside extra supplies for your family. There’s no reason you should give up your deer rifles.  There is no harm in considering the public safety of your communities, water supplies, use of public buildings in emergencies, food banks, and similar efforts are all fine.

As State Assemblies we have every reason and right to promote true Public Safety. As anyone who has been through an actual disaster can tell you, FEMA is not about Public Safety nor any direct and effective relief, so there is a role for State Assemblies to play in terms of community preparedness, but not with the intention of warring against a government that we have ourselves created.

This is our own Bug-A-Boo and it is up to us to take up the means of control which we already have, to make it perform as it should.

Think about it. Our States of the Union have been at peace since 1814.  It’s best for everyone concerned if we stay at peace and simply lawfully,

take  up the task of minding our own store.

We need to seize upon and exercise our lawful rights and we all need to learn how to enforce those rights and guarantees that are already ours.

In that lies the true safety of everyone concerned, including our sons and daughters in the US military services and our neighbors working to perform other government services.

The unique structure of the American Government places us in the crucial position of upholding the rights of everyone else — including those of us who are currently serving in the capacity of ‘US Citizens”.

Without us knot heads exercising our “natural and unalienable rights” on the land and soil of the American States, those natural and unalienable rights disappear for everyone concerned and all that is left is “civil rights” given by oligarchs and taken away by oligarchs.

Is that what our service members have fought and died to defend, the petty interests of petty despots in Washington, DC?

Or is it about preserving something far better, far nobler, and far greater than that current sideshow of self-interest and politics?

Once all the US Citizens wake up and realize that we are actually the ones covering their backs and preserving their right to come home and enjoy freedom, and we wake up and realize that they are also doing the same for us, then this idiocy of shadow boxing can disappear.

We can step back, and from the larger perspective, see how foreign governments acting in Breach of Trust and in violation of commercial contracts, treaties, and obligations, have occupied middleman positions and worked both sides against the middle to benefit themselves– and all at our expense.

We can identify our actual enemies and the enemies of all Mankind and we can then take appropriate action to eradicate these banal evils; we can do so lawfully, peacefully, and with impunity, using the tools that we already have.

This is, as we have always said, a matter of criminals and criminality, not a matter of politics at all.  Our lawful national government has been overtaken and “substituted for” by our own employees run amok.  There are cures for that, that does not involve guns or “Committees of Safety”.

When we empower ourselves and apply the actual Law instead of getting mired down in the “Rule of Law” — which is nothing but the policies and procedures of courts — we win.  We win peacefully, decisively, and forever.

Let the simple truth be our armor and let the Divine Providence that established our many sovereign republican states be with us, and may we all realize that we give each other the only safety there is, by sharing and by caring and by taking right action every day that we live.

04 25 19 Bombshell Indeed + John Bogles Bombshell Gift to Americans



 By Anna Von Reitz

Just today I was talking with a friend about her concerns about her employer-based credit union and I explained that all banks and credit unions are obligated to “denominate” the digits representing funds in our accounts as “lawful money” if and when we request this.

In real terms this means that your digits have to be interpreted as United States Notes instead of Federal Reserve Notes.  It may seem like a small thing, but it’s not.  Every penny that gets redefined as lawful money reduces the US National Debt by the same amount.

The same thing happens when we endorse every check or other financial instrument with a “limited endorsement” that says, “Redeemed in lawful money — 12 USC 411”.  It makes no difference to you or your creditors or vendors, but it reduces the US National Debt by the full face value of the check or other instrument.

If every American Senior did this same thing religiously and converted all their retirement accounts and checking and savings and insurance and mortgage accounts and started “redeeming” them all in lawful money, the US National Debt would plummet like a rock, and the Seniors would enjoy the added security of knowing that their funds were no longer subject to seizure by the banks. Lawful money is a material asset, not a credit.  The bank has to carry lawful money as a material liability.

It couldn’t happen to a nicer bunch of crooked scumbags.

And for all you youngsters just starting out in the world and thinking two thoughts about retirement and Mutual Funds — here’s a bit of mathematics and insight from one of the Fathers of the Mutual Fund industry:

04 25 19 John Bogle’s Bombshell Gift to Americans


John Bogle, Founder of the Vanguard Group

 By Pam Martens: January 17, 2019 ~

The legendary John Bogle passed away yesterday in Bryn Mawr, Pennsylvania. He was 89. Bogle was the founder of Vanguard Group. In announcing his death, Vanguard said that Bogle “introduced the first index mutual fund for investors and, in the face of skeptics, stood behind the concept until it gained widespread acceptance; and he drove down costs across the mutual fund industry by ceaselessly campaigning in the interests of investors.”

We’ll always remember Bogle for the courage he demonstrated on April 23, 2013 when he appeared on the PBS program Frontline. Bogle dropped the bombshell that Wall Street has attempted to hide for half a century: If you work for 50 years and receive the typical long-term return of 7 percent on your 401(k) plan and your fees are 2 percent, almost two-thirds of your account will go to Wall Street.

Bogle explained the math to Frontline’s Martin Smith:

Bogle: What happens in the fund business is the magic of compound returns is overwhelmed by the tyranny of compounding costs. It’s a mathematical fact. There’s no getting around it. The fact that we don’t look at it— too bad for us.

Smith: What I have a hard time understanding is that 2 percent fee that I might pay to an actively managed mutual fund is going to really have a great impact on my future retirement savings.

Bogle: Well, you have to rely on somebody to get out a compound interest table and look at the impact over an investment lifetime. Do you really want to invest in a system where you put up 100 percent of the capital, you the mutual fund shareholder, you take 100 percent of the risk and you get 30 percent of the return?

You can check the math yourself. Access a compounding calculator on line. Input an account with a $100,000 balance and compound it at 7 percent for 50 years. That gives you a balance of $3,278,041.36. Now change the calculation to a 5 percent return (reduced by the 2 percent annual fee) for the same $100,000 over the same 50 years. That delivers a return of $1,211,938.32. That’s a difference of $2,066,103.04 – the same 63 percent reduction in value that Smith’s example showed.

If you don’t know the amount of fees that you’re paying on the mutual funds in your 401(k) plan, 403(b) plan, IRA or other retirement vehicle, you may be putting your ability to retire with adequate income and dignity at risk.

04 25 19 Guilt by Association



By Anna Von Reitz

Remember the movie “Lonesome Dove”?  Remember how Gus and Woodrow wound up hanging their friend Jake Spoon?

Jake was an affable man, not a bad man at all, just weak and shiftless.  He fell in with a gang of murdering horse thieves and cattle rustlers on the trail, and by the time he realized what company he was in, it was too late.  Though he didn’t participate and didn’t kill anyone, he was guilty by association.

Now people are in uproar and accusing me of bad leadership and unkindness and lack of good judgment because I have drawn hard lines between The American States Assembly effort and all the other organizations out there that claim they are doing the same thing.  Why?

Guilt by association.

Maybe it hasn’t really hit rock bottom yet, but US Citizens can’t organize an actual State of the Union and its a crime for them to be involved in any such thing.  It’s not a small crime, either.  It’s a whopper.

Even if they mean well, even if they don’t know that jurisdictional boundaries have been crossed, even if they are innocent as the flowers in May.

Bruce Doucette got 38 years under the statutory law — and it would have been worse if he had been tried as a US Citizen under Common Law.  He and the other people with him could have been hung.  Just like Jake Spoon and for the same reason.

That should tell people enough, but unfortunately, it is still not sinking in.

Anyone who hasn’t got their identity nailed down and their political status correction on the public record is presumed to be a US Citizen, and it is a crime for a US Citizen to be a member of anything calling itself a State Assembly.

So. I am not being mean. I am not being arrogant. And I am not being set up with some phony collusion charge and being railroaded, either. Those other groups are doing what they are doing and The American States Assembly is doing what it is doing— and never the twain shall meet.  Why?

I have zero tolerance for guilt by association.

Now, I am willing to whole-heartedly believe that there are lot of good patriotic people involved in all those other groups.  And I agree that a vast fraud has been practiced against us and that it is irritating that we have to respond to it and rebut it, but the fact remains that we do have to rebut it.

Those who don’t do the paperwork, who don’t reclaim their birthright on the record, who don’t rebut the presumption of US Citizenship — are leaving themselves and their Assemblies open to being charged as criminals, and anyone who aids and abets them or associates with them, is open to guilt by association and claims of conspiracy and collusion.

Not me, Bubba.  And not The American States Assembly, either.

There is one other kind of “guilt by association” I want to discuss and this one is, if possible, even more troublesome.  This is the one that confuses me and my team with public servants.

Some people think that I and the other members of The Living Law Firm are public employees, that it is our “job” to straighten this mess out and bring the claims and do all the work for everyone.

And they blame us, because they are sitting on their rumps expecting to be served and expecting to get everything for free and they think somehow that its not their problem — it’s our problem, as if we caused it by discovering it: again, guilt by association.

Here’s the rest of the story, and I am not being arrogant, irresponsible, or mean.  I am telling you the truth.  It is our problem — it’s a problem for every American and every US Citizen.  We have all been set up.  We’ve been defrauded, enslaved, lied to, and the plans are well-underway to steal our inheritance right along with our identities.

Now, identity theft is a crime that everyone in this day and age should understand.  Some hot shot kid with a computer and a bad streak gets hold of your name and some information about you and suddenly, they are into your bank accounts, they clean out your life insurance, they max out your credit cards.

What the British Territorial Government under the Queen and the Municipal United States Government under the Pope did to us, is just a gigantic national level identity theft.  It has the same results for everyone.  If you are an American, you’ve suffered identity theft and institutionalized fraud and robbery.  If you are a US Citizen, you’ve been fingered as a criminal and left holding the bag and the national debt.  Either way, they did this to us while pretending to be our friends, our Allies, and our protectors.

If you want someone to blame, blame yourselves first for being so clueless for so long, then blame the Queen and her lot for all the lies they’ve told about all of us, and then finally blame the Roman Pontiffs and the Roman Curia for their parts in all this rot —- but don’t blame me and don’t blame my team.  We are not associated with the crime and we are not guilty by association, either.

04 24 19 For All the Jural Assemblies 51 NAMES and Debts



By Anna Von Reitz

Immediately following and attendant upon Texas entering the Union, a reshuffling of the Federal Territorial Government began and a change in nomenclature was adopted by the Municipal United States Government. This started in 1845 and culminated in 1851.  Prior to that, the Municipal Government functioned using the nomenclature of Roman Civil Law and the conventions of Latin.

In Latin, the greatest power and respect and political status is indicated by the use of all small letters.  A name written in all small letters indicates the political status of a free patrician in their private capacity: flavius josephus.

Thus, until 1851, the republican states occupying the soil jurisdiction of this country are all referenced and written in Municipal documents using all small letters: texas, wisconsin, florida…. and these states are all known to be represented by business organizations dba texas republic and republic of texas, for example.

This made it easy to literally see what jurisdiction of each republican state was being referenced, and in this case, the soil jurisdiction is being indicated by the use of all small letters.

After 1851, the Municipal United States Government adopted English conventions.  After that, the soil jurisdiction had to be directly referenced in the text, because the soil jurisdiction of Texas looks the same as the land and sea jurisdiction of Texas in English.

It’s all “signed” as “Texas” without any finer distinction available in English text.

This causes confusion for people delving into old documents, but its not really that confusing.  In the earlier “Latinized” documents, “texas” is the national soil jurisdiction of the republican state operated by the “people”, “Texas” is the land jurisdiction State operating the international jurisdiction of the People.

As letters are capitalized in Latin, a loss of political status and power is indicated:

“flavius josephus” is a free man.

“Flavius Josephus” is an indentured servant or Office Holder.

“FLAVIUS JOSEPHUS” is a slave of Rome.

Thus in the old Latinized documents that you run across in your research a reference to “virginia” is talking about the soil jurisdiction of the colony or the republican state, depending on the time frame, while a reference to “Virginia” is talking about the international land or sea jurisdiction of the colony or the republican state, and if — very rarely — you run across a reference to “VIRGINIA” in old pre-1851 papers of the Territorial or Municipal Governments, this indicates the global jurisdiction of the air that is subject to Rome, but nonetheless attached to the ownership of the republican state, virginia.

There was a resurgence of these “Latinized” conventions in this country following the Second World War, when the Romanized Municipal United States Government exerted itself and issued “PERSONS” in the “name of” American State Citizens who were wrongly registered as Territorial United States Citizens.

This is because the Territorial United States [Military] Government was in debt to the Pope and the Holy See.  They had earlier in the 1920’s – 1940’s created Territorial “franchises” for themselves, operating in names identical to our Given Names and appearing to be Proper Names in English, but having been “Registered” as British Foreign Situs Trusts operating in the international jurisdiction of the sea, not recorded as the Given Names of American State Nationals.

The British Territorial United States Government having accomplished this fraudulent “unlawful conversion” and identity theft, then sold these fake franchises as “salvaged property” presumed to belong to the former Confederate States of States to the Roman Pontiff.

The Roman Pontiff then converted these into WARDS of the Municipal United States Government, and various incorporated entities operating under these slave NAMES were created — most especially, a Pauper doing business under a NAME styled as “JOHN DOE”, a Cestui Que Vie Estate Trust doing business under a NAME styled as “JOHN MICHAEL DOE”, and a Public Transmitting Utility doing business under a NAME styled as “JOHN M. DOE”.

As things stand, the British Territorial Government has been briefly subjected to Chapter 11 Bankruptcy and the Municipal United States corporation claiming to own all these various entities as “WARDS” of the various Municipal STATES OF STATES is undergoing liquidation.

At which point, we have stood up and said — ah, wait a minute — there’s been a mistake.

(1) We were never at sea and never knowingly or willingly acting as British Territorial “United States Citizens” despite the unconscionable falsified registrations indicating that we were;

(2) Therefore, we and our assets were not available for the British Territorial United States Government to sell to the Roman Pontiff;

(3) We are here at home, standing on the land and soil jurisdiction of our States, owed every jot of the Constitutions, and also owed the return of our natural birthright estates free and clear of any debt or encumbrance. We are also owed any profit realized from the lease and use and trading upon of our private and public property.

This is why we are owed a lot of money from both the British Government and the Vatican.

Both are under solemn treaties and commercial service contracts and both have acted in Gross Breach of Trust.

Both have taken advantage of and attempted to cheat generations of Americans via the undisclosed and unconscionable contracts provided by phony birth registrations — used to create the legal presumption that we were all choosing to be counted as “United States Citizens” and that we were, moreover, leftover “rebels” and abandoned assets of the defunct Confederate States of States—- instead of being peaceful American State Nationals native to States of the Union that were never involved in the Civil War, never at sea, and never engaged in international commerce at all.

No doubt, after eighty years of silence, they thought they were going to get away with it, and it has been quite a shock to find that we are still awake and still alive and that we contest and rebut their falsified records and presumptions being made against our country, our populace, and our lawful government.

04 24 19 For All the Jural Assemblies 50 Congresses




By Anna Von Reitz

We all think of “the” Congress, but in fact, “Congress” is a very broad word and basically means “meeting” and, to be honest, a “verbally raucous meeting” –as in a “Congress of Crows”.  It has in its original meaning and context none of the dignity accorded to the word today, and a return to the earlier understanding would be healthier and far more realistic for our purposes.

The original Congress that we think of, known as “The First Continental Congress” was exactly such a meeting — raucous and undisciplined and largely unofficial, as it was the equivalent of a Committee of the House of Burgesses meeting off-site in the City of Philadelphia, a jurisdiction foreign to the Colonies being represented. “The Second Continental Congress” was no different or better in terms of being a contentious and largely unofficial meeting of men recognized as deputies (fiscal officers) of their colonies.

A “colony” is itself a “farm family community”— it has no land of its own, because a king or pope or other potentate has assumed ownership of the land, nonetheless, these two Congresses of fiscal deputies sent from thirteen colonies are styled as “Continental Congresses” for a reason.

It is from their actions that The American Revolutionary War derived, was prosecuted, and brought to the successful conclusion in which the colonists gained control of the land and soil of this country and ultimately, this portion of the North American Continent.

The American Revolution was substantially about ownership of soil and land, about the right to expand westward (in contravention of Treaties that the King of England had with the Native Tribal Leaders) as much as it was about freedom and the rights and dignity of mankind.

The colonists, all considered members of their respective farm family communities, whether they lived in towns or not, naturally and immediately gave rise to separate nations– groups of people identifying with a common cultural, historical, political and geographical history.

That is, the people of the colonies gave rise to nations once they declared their interest in the land and soil: the Colonists of Georgia— became in the words of the (eventual) Treaty of Paris (1783) a “free, sovereign and independent people”— Georgians, the Colonists of New York became New Yorkers, and the Colonists of Virginia became Virginians… and so on.

Similarly, having obtained the right to the soil and land and having declared their ownership, the former colonists were suddenly in possession of land jurisdiction states that occupied the same boundaries as the former colonies, more or less, and the people who were now recognized as Georgians, New Yorkers, Virginians and so on, were left to define these new sovereign States, nail down their official borders, and in all other ways decide upon all the issues which would enable them to act as responsible members of the international community of states and nations.

And all of this devolved upon them while they were engaged in fighting the Revolutionary War and throughout the decades following.

Chaos reigned. And England meddled.

Each new State issued its own currency for the purposes of trade. Some of the new States did a better, more responsible job of this than others, and prospered, but some States suffered inflation and other ills of bad monetary policy—- aided by British counterfeiting of the American States’ currencies—all of which served to undermine the stability and economic viability of the new States.

Their first attempt to issue a mutual international currency, the Continental Dollar, was counterfeited and inflated into oblivion.

So another “Congress” was called, and this was a meeting — a congress — of The United States in Congress Assembled.

Please notice the exact words and styles of the words.

Jointly and severally, The United States, meaning those “States” that derived from the original Colonies and their Union of States formed by The Unanimous Declaration of Independence, did what?  Ah, they “Assembled” for a meeting— a Congress, but it was no longer a “Continental Congress”, it was The United States Congress.


Because this body of delegates was meeting to discuss business that concerned a different jurisdiction.  They were next meeting to discuss political (for example, international trade) and financial (currency) issues. Every Congress since then has met to address these sorts of issues.

There has never again been a Continental Congress held to specifically address land and soil issues.

As you page through the history of this country you will find that there have been many different kinds of “Congresses” called to meet, both in Philadelphia, and later in Washington, DC.  The topics that these “Congresses” addressed and the nature and composition of the delegations attending these meetings have changed over time.  This is always indicated by the records kept of these meetings.

Thus we have the Continental Congresses, The United States in Congress Assembled, The United States of America in Congress Assembled, The Congress of the united States of America,  The Congress of the United States, The Congress of the United States of America, and so on and on.

Any idea or impression that there is now or has ever been an entity known as “the” Congress representing this country is just that — an impression, not a truth, not an actuality.  Instead, what has happened over time, is that a practice of electing “Congressional Delegations” has developed, and whatever kind of “Congress” meets, meets.

Washington, DC, itself, is like a hotel or a conference center, where delegations of various kinds and statures can hold “Congresses” — that is, meetings— on neutral turf.  The fact that “a” Congress meets in Washington, DC, grants it no special or pre-determined purpose or identity. Rather, Washington, DC, is like a bird’s nest that can be occupied sequentially by robins, cuckoos, crows, and meadow larks.

For the sake of sanity, only one such Congress can meet in Washington, DC at a time, but there have been occasions in our history when multiple complete Congressional Delegations have met at the same time, one in Philadelphia and another in New York and another in Washington, DC.

All the Delegates of all these Congresses are empowered to speak for their own body politic and to speak to their own particular issues.

Thus, a meeting of “The United States of America in Congress Assembled” is a meeting of Delegates who are elected by land jurisdiction States and by the People of those States who are American State Citizens, and such a Congress is empowered to exercise the full range of “powers” possessed by those States of the Union.

A meeting of “The Congress of the United States of America” by comparison, is a meeting of Delegates elected by “United States Citizens” comprising the Territorial United States “citizenry” and such a Congress is empowered to exercise the limited range of powers and address such issues as “The Constitution of the United States of America” places in their grasp.

You are no doubt beginning to get the true flavor of the situation that our country faces: “the” Congress presently meeting in Washington, DC, is not our Congress of the American States and People.  It’s “a” Congress representing Federal Citizens — not American State Citizens.

It has been a very long time since the People of this country exerted themselves to act in their sovereign capacity and assembled their States of the Union and sent Fiduciary Deputies to a meeting of The United States of America in Congress Assembled, and it is long overdue.

That is why those of you who have the ability to claim your birthright political status as American State Citizens are being called to correct all the falsified Territorial United States Birth Registrations that have been issued in your names without your knowledge or consent, and also part of the reason that you are being called to Assemble your States of the Union.

Your States will, once they are ready, elect their Delegates to attend a meeting of The United States of America in Congress Assembled, and they will then address and define those issues which only the actual States and People of this country can address.

Most likely, this meeting of our Congress will occur in Philadelphia, owing to the fact that the Municipal and Territorial Congresses are almost continually holding court in Washington, DC.

04 21 19 For All The Jural Assemblies 49 Republic or Republican Civil or Civilian


Below is article 49 and all of this series are found on the link below




By Anna Von Reitz

As is now apparent to everyone, confusion and semantic deceits are the stock-and-trade of crooked lawyers.

It should come as no surprise that these same devices which seek to confuse “Citizens of The United States” with “citizens of the United States” and to pass off “the State of Wyoming” for “The State of Wyoming” have been employed to promote other self-interested gambits.

There is right now a concerted effort to confuse “Republics” with “Republican States” and to pass off the “Civil Government” for the “Civilian Government” we are owed.

Most people in America are not well-prepared to recognize this ruse for what it is, because the study of Latin even in the Church has been suppressed since the 1960’s.

However, there are still a few dinosaurs, present company included, who do recognize Latin and do have the ability to properly interpret the full one-third of our Founding Documents which are written in Latin.  So it is up to us to clue the rest of you in to the fine points.

What our Forefathers built and what they envisioned from the start was a “republican” state and a “republican form of government”.  Please note those two letters “an” that are attached to the word “republic”.  In Latin, this converts the word from the male gender to the female gender, and conveys a significantly different meaning than the word, “republic”.

With a “republican form of government” everyone in this country has both rights and responsibilities.  Everyone has the right to own land and other property interests.  Everyone has a duty to uphold the public law.  Everyone has a duty to defend our country. Our nation extends down to the poorest and up to the richest among us.  We are all equal in our political status, all enabled to elect fiduciary deputies to conduct our public business, all equally protected under the Public Law.

In a “republican state” the population is organized similar to the present government of the Swiss Cantons.

The job of American governance begins around the kitchen table, which is the focus of power, because the ultimate source of political power in a republican state is vested in the living people and extends outward from the family to the community to the county to the state to the country as a whole.

The living people occupy the pinnacle of power in a republican state and they are what is known as the civilian government.

By now you have noticed that those two pesky little letters “an” are also attached to the word “civil” to create the word “civilian”.

As in the above example of “republican” versus “republic”, the addition of “an” to the word “civil” converts it to “civilian” and converts the gender of the Latin from male to female, which changes the meaning and flavor of the word.  “Civil” can refer to any function of government that is not military, but “civilian” can only refer to the people as in “civilian population” — themselves.

Thus a “civil action” is not necessarily a “civilian action”, and vice versa.

Now we’ve looked at what a “republican state” and a “republican form of government” implies and also noted the difference between “civil” and “civilian”. It’s time we looked at the male counterparts — “republic” and “civil”.

You may be sure that if our Forefathers had meant to establish “State Republics” instead of “republican states” they had the command of language and thought to do so.  The fact that they did not create “State Republics” and did not choose this as their form of government should raise some red flags in the minds of those who are mistakenly describing our States of the Union as “Republics”.

Americans have never had any “State Republics” much less have we embraced “a” political Republic to represent our Federation of States.  We have never embraced “democracy” either, apart from the concept that everyone’s power at the ballot box is equal.

Those who are spouting off about “a” Republic and “State Republics” are either: (1) ignorant; or (2) undeclared agents of the Municipal Government of Washington, DC. — trying to foist their foreign form of government off onto unwary Americans, using more semantic deceits.

The Municipal United States Government doing business as “the” United States, operates as a separate plenary oligarchy that is structured as an independent international city-state.  It is its own separate little country plopped down in the middle of the District of Columbia, which is run in turn by the Territorial United States Government.  This Municipal city state is run entirely according to the whims of the members of Congress.  See Article 1, Section 8, Clause 17 of the Constitutions to see where this is allowed.

The Municipal Government is “inhabited” exclusively by “persons” — not “populated” by “people”– and these persons are functioning as either: (1) Oligarchs with unrestricted power; or (2) some form of “Citizen of the United States” — a corporate officer or municipal employee or dependent of the Municipal Government; or (3) a SLAVE — a corporation chartered under the auspices of this separate government.

Note that these are decidedly not “republican states” and as separate STATE oligarchies under the plenary control of the members of Congress are not operating as any “republican form of government”, either.

As we saw earlier, the word “civil” can be applied to any function of government that is not military, and that is in fact how the Municipal United States Government is described as the “Civil Government” — please note because this is extremely important —- it is not the civilian government, which is our government,  to which both the Civil Government (Municipal) and the Military Government (Territorial) owe Good Faith Service.

It is the Municipal Government which has styled itself as “a” Roman-style Republic and which has usurped outside its stipulated boundaries and functions to create for itself a shadow government of Municipal STATES OF STATES which are styled as “Republics” and as “State Republics”.

This separate “Civil Government” which is here on our shores providing federal non-military services [think Postal Service, Customs Houses, Tax Collection, etc.] under the provisions of The Constitution of the United States, is the source of the oft-noted symbol of the Roman Fasces — a bundle of sticks — that appears around the Federal Capitol and on various seals and emblems associated with this element of the Federal Government.

Unfortunately, the members of Congress elected by “US Citizens” and “Citizens of the United States” —- have gone into business for themselves, while we, purportedly anyway, have been “absent”.

This False Claim against our Government of the People, for the People, and by the People, has been promoted using the excuse that the original “States of States” serving our States of the Union ceased to function after the Civil War. We can answer this easily enough by saying, “So what?”

Our States of the Union have never ceased to function, and as the source of all the “Delegated Powers” that the Federal Government ever exercised, our States are competent by definition to take over and run any aspect of government that is otherwise unfulfilled — Federal, State, County, or otherwise.

The current attempts by the Municipal Government and its Undeclared Agents to promote their “Republic” as a substitute for our unincorporated United States of America and to promote their “State Republics” —- which are merely foreign commercial corporation franchises—as a substitute for our “republican states” is at best attempted international commercial fraud and at worst open treason against our Lawful Government and against the Constitutions we are owed.

This is especially concerning as regards the issue of citizenship.

Those serving the Federal Government and their Dependents have always been afforded Dual Citizenship with the intention that those Americans providing Federal Services would be able to retain the protections of their American State National status at the same time that they worked as either “United States Citizens” or as “Citizens of the United States”.

Unfortunately, many members of the current Federal Government branches have abused this generous arrangement to adopt totally foreign citizenship obligations.  Some consider themselves Dual Citizens of the Territorial and Municipal Governments.  Others, like many members of Congress, have styled themselves as Municipal Government Citizens and citizens of entirely foreign countries.  Many Democrats and some Republicans function as citizens of their plenary oligarchy and also citizens of Israel, Monaco, England, and so on.

As such, these people are expatriating themselves from any association with our States and our Lawful Government, placing themselves outside of our Constitutions and our Public Law, while still pretending to be our “Representatives” and to have our permission to charge their expenses against our credit.

This allows them, at least superficially, to operate as foreigners immune from prosecution on our shores.  But, please note, this sword cuts both ways.

At the point they violate our Public Law, they are simply foreign criminals on our shores, like illegal immigrants, subject to international arrest warrants and  detainment.  They are owed no protection under the constitutions, and owed no loyalty, as they have betrayed their own country and their countrymen alike.

Also to the point, as their actual political status was not disclosed to those voting in the corporate elections, they need to be deprived of office and have their elections overturned.  Remember that they work under contract, and for a contract to be binding, it must be fully disclosed.

Bottom Line:  educate everyone as to the current effort to confuse our “republican states” with their State Republics doing business as STATES OF STATES —-incorporated “STATES”, and to confuse our civilian government with their own Civil Government, which is a foreign subcontractor on our shores.

They are trying to usurp authority from our missing Federal States of States, and from our actual States of the Union, and once again, they are using semantic deceit to try to accomplish this —- deliberately promoting their foreign “Republics” and their “Civil Government”  as if these were our “republican states” and our “civilian government”.

Refuse to be confused and do not support any of these charlatans in their con game.  Educate all Americans and spread the word.

I wonder how many of Anna’s readers are aware of the average intellect it takes to understand exactly what she is saying in many of her articles. I declare that it is an intellect that 80% of Americans have never obtained because of the surreptitious so called education they received. Ask yourself if you really understand what has happened to America. Is it feasible you and your family are really prepared to comprehend the real situation you are in? Do you fully understand that most people will take offense at an article they do not comprehend? Perhaps you have lived your life unprepared to protect yourself from our present legal system which makes us totally dependent on lawyers who do not have any loyalty to you. It is high time for Americans to lay down their various entertainments and pick up a book. Folks, you will never be free and ignorant because those who would harm you know you are defenseless. The rich and educated have been stealing your freedom for centuries because you do not have the ability to recognize them, or their power over you. If you cannot comprehend what Anna is doing or saying, whose fault is that? And where is your God given instinct?


04 21 19 Apples and Oranges



 By Anna Von Reitz

The job before us is to gather together a crate of apples.

US Citizens equals oranges.  Americans equals apples.

It seems simple enough, doesn’t it?

Today I got an angry message from Tim in Pennsylvania asking what I know about Beacon 37 and the Republic and what they are trying to do?

I know that Beacon 37 and the Republic and yes, the National Assembly, are all welcoming US Citizens as members, and that means that no, they can’t assemble an actual American State — which is what needs to be done.

Back in 2011, I got involved  in RuSA— the “Republic”— under Tim Turner’s leadership.

When I realized they were off track, I went public and told Tim that he was crossing jurisdictions and that we couldn’t do that.

He stomped all over me and would not listen to a word I said; six months later he was in jail serving an 18 year sentence.

Then, in 2015, I met Bruce Doucette.

His heart was in the right place and we became good friends, but within months, he had gotten sidetracked, too, and was doing the same thing as Tim Turner —- crossing jurisdictions.

Again, I warned him.  Like Tim Turner, he wouldn’t listen.  Three months later he was arrested and now he’s in jail serving a 38 year sentence.

This should be enough to prove that I know what I am talking about, but there are still those “experts” out there who won’t draw the line between apples and oranges.

Here’s what I told Tim in Pennsylvania verbatim:

“I know that Beacon 37 and the Republic and RuSA and yes, National Assembly, too— all welcome and include US Citizens.

And so far as what I am advocating, that is all I need to know.

These organizations are not able to assemble the actual States, nor are they able to reconstruct the Federal States of States that Americans are owed.

As a result, they are just competing against the actual effort that needs to be made, drawing off resources, and confusing the issues.

You “can’t get there from here” is their problem and always has been and more importantly–always will be.

I am not kidding either when I point out that the Territorial Government is under obligation to arrest any United States Citizens engaged in “assembling” or claiming to assemble.

This is the same kind of error that put Bruce Doucette in jail for 38 years and it is not happening to me or anyone who follows what I am doing.

So make up your mind and do one or the other– assemble the actual State and act as one of the People, or get out of the way and stop trying to confuse yourself and your other agenda with me or anything I am doing.”

This is the way it is, and the way it has to be.

Otherwise, I would be open to the same kind of attack as what happened to Turner and Doucette — and more importantly, so would the innocent people who are taking action to build actual State Assemblies.

I owe it to myself and my own good sense and to the people who are depending in Good Faith on the knowledge I share with them, not to make this mistake and not to be associated with anyone who does make this mistake.

I am an apple assembling with other apples.  I am staying in my lane and giving nobody cause to claim otherwise.

When and if I see any commingling of my message with these other organizations, I take exception to it and draw the line— both privately and in public.

Last night I gave Jocelyn at PaperUpNow.com the same message I gave Tim Turner and Bruce Doucette.

She has been advertising the Republic as a resource in the same breath as she has been presenting my paperwork — but the Republic as an organization hasn’t ever made correction and is still crossing jurisdictions.

I turned my back on Tim Turner and RuSA though I didn’t want to.  I turned my back on Bruce Doucette and wept bitterly– for him and for all of us.

But an orange is an orange and an apple is an apple, and neither I nor the people struggling to assemble the actual States of the Union can afford these kinds of mistakes.

It’s nobody’s “fault”.  It doesn’t imply any moral judgment. It’s just a terrible and costly mistake that a great many people make.  The way is broad that leads to destruction, but the way to Life is narrow and hard.

The fact remains that if your task is to gather a crate of apples, you have to know what apples are—–and you have to recognize the difference between apples and oranges.

This problem of recognizing, who is right, and who is wrong has its birth place in the natural nature of man-kind. Most highly intelligent men want the lead roll in any venture they are involved in and that is not going away soon. The chauvinistic tendency in men is part of their natural design and will continue to be the rotten fruit in any form of leadership; especially that of government. Needles to say, those who have a burning desire to be the stud duck in any organization will naturally consider them self as superior intellects and refuse to follow anyone, and for that reason alone each and every person who understands Anna’s instructions must follow her instructions to the letter. If your local group of officials want to go a different route and refuse to follow Anna’s obvious intellectual superiority, you will be pooping in your own nest. The scumbags in DC and our own local governments will go for the jugular of anyone who threatens their power, so be sure you are following the right leader. Chauvinism will be the downfall of Americas return to lawful governance.
