You have elected all these jokers in good faith, assuming that you were electing them to public office.  They have occupied similarly named private corporate offices instead, and left the public offices vacant.

Read the Foreign Sovereign Immunity Act (FSIA) and the International Organizations Immunity Act (IOIA) for blatant proof of what they have done.

You thought you elected Fiduciary Deputies to conduct your business in Congress, but no, they redefined their role to be mere “representatives”.  They then “represented” you any way that padded their pockets and boosted corporate profits.

See their Amendment to their phony corporate “Constitution” published in 1868 that changes the accountability of “US Senators” making them only accountable to their peers in Congress.  Being a Senator is as close to being “king” as it gets. They can’t be recalled by the people who elected them. And you have allowed all this crap, because frankly, you and your parents and grandparents have been asleep at the wheel.

You have believed that the “federal government” was your government, but in fact, it has always been a foreign service vendor operated by British Subjects here on our shores to provide “essential governmental services”.  Read Article IV of The Constitution.

Go back and read the actual founding documents — the Definitive Treaty of Peace, Paris, 1783 spells it out.  There are two populations in this country and there always have been: “free, sovereign, and independent people of the United States” and the British Subject “inhabitants” loyal to the King, here on our shores to provide “essential government services”.

The same treaty reveals that King George III remained the acknowledged “prince” and Arch-Treasurer of the United States after the Revolution.

That thing in Washington, District of Columbia, is not your government and it never has been.  It is a foreign, self-interested— and since 1868— incorporated

entity that is in the business of providing governmental services under contract.  Period.

It’s the governmental services equivalent of Exxon.

Your states of the Union were its original customers. They agreed to receive and pay for nineteen strictly enumerated services spelled out in The Constitution—-all of them carried out in the international jurisdiction of the sea.

But, corporations being corporations, they’ve drummed up business however they saw fit, often via extortion (IRS) and racketeering (Social Security, Obamacare, etc.) and theft (BLM).

The agents of the “federal corporation” routinely lie to you and tell you that you have to buy something or pay something or take some action (like signing up for Social Security) because it is a “government mandate” and you are stupid enough to go along with this, so they continue to get away with it.

They routinely criminalize normal activities of common right, like traveling from Point A to Point B or getting married, so that they can charge you for “licenses” and “regulate” your private business as “commerce”.  They consider all “United States Citizens” their slaves and all “citizens of the United States” are defined as criminals.

Read the 13th and 14th Amendments of their bogus corporate “Constitution” more carefully and you will see what has gone on.

In their 13th Amendment they abolished slavery—- except for criminals.  In the 14th Amendment of their filthy look-alike, sound-alike corporate charter document, they made all “citizens of the United States” criminals.  By definition. And then they have contrived to define all of us as “citizens of the United States” by any means fair or foul.

We have played unwitting host to the most vile, venal, oppressive, out of control crime syndicate in the history of the world, and we have mistakenly thought that this THING was our own dear government and paddled along like good little ducks, acting in good faith,  doing whatever we were told.

Imagine that you are a magazine publisher and you can order 390 million people to buy three subscriptions or six subscriptions or a dozen subscriptions each….and the limit of this abuse is only what the victims will tolerate?

That’s what you have going on in Washington, DC, but it is actually much, much worse than that.

These vermin have gotten away with their abusive profit-hunting for so long, that they have promoted violence and piracy and criminality throughout the world.

These people are all British Subjects and they are commandeered as such —literally press-ganged and falsely identified as British Subjects—  the moment they take an oath of office or accept a federal job or are herded like sheep and coerced under false pretenses into accepting a “Social Security Number”.

These British cons have hidden behind our skirts and used us as front men to carry out their dirty work, so that the Americans are being blamed for it all.

This is what comes from allowing foreign governments (both British and since WWII, French) to “share” your country’s international jurisdiction and to dictate your trade policy and issue your money and wipe your butts for you.

There are two main (and many subsidiary) federal corporations providing you and their franchises operated as fake “states of states” with “governmental services”.

The IMF has operated the UNITED STATES, INC. on our shores and that vicious fraud machine has finally been bankrupted and forced into liquidation.  The FEDERAL RESERVE has operated THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, INC., and it has been forced into Chapter 11 bankruptcy.

So now we have Jacob Rothschild here promoting the NEW REPUBLIC, INC., as a replacement for these “governmental services corporations” and the UN Corporation, not the actual United Nations, is shipping in blue-helmeted commercial mercenaries from around the world to keep the peace while these despicable corporations are dismantled and taken down and their assets returned to their creditors.

The Big Problem has been that the Priority Creditors of these vicious crime syndicates have been absent from the table.  Nobody has raised their hand or made a “Peep!” in behalf of the actual American nation-states and the living American people who have been the prime victims of all this chicanery, nor have they spoken up for the equally defrauded people of the UK, CANADA, AUSTRALIA, JAPAN, and so on and on.

Instead, we and our assets have remained on the table as the Feast prepared by the Evil Ones for their Secondary Creditors— the banks and foreign investors they have defrauded in our names without our knowledge or consent— at the same time they have been robbing and defrauding us.

Which is why I and numerous others have labored for many years to bring forward the claims of the American States and people.  We saw the crap the rats pulled during the bankruptcy of the United States of America, Inc. and we haven’t sat on our thumbs for another round of it.  Instead, we have spent twenty-plus years of our lives documenting the debts owed by these corporations to the actual, factual states and people.

Is this going to cause dismay and disruption?  Will it require an armed invasion of Washington, DC?   If so, we should be standing shoulder to shoulder with the “Blue Hats” and helping them flush the sewers of the Beltline, not shooting at them—-but to be honest, we don’t have a dog in this fight.

These corporations are not—repeat, NOT— our government. They never have been. Both the UNITED STATES and THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA are just foreign, corporate vendors of governmental services gone horribly wrong.

Our interests are best served by flying our own peacetime Civil Flag (vertical stripes, blue stars) or a simple white truce flag, and minding our own business while the odious debts accrued against us and other nations are wiped away and the criminals are removed.

And, most importantly, we need to wake the $@$@ up.

There is no reason for Britain or France or any other foreign interest to control such vital functions of our government as the issuance of our money or dictate our international trade policies or command the deployment of our Armed Forces under color of law.

It’s time to renegotiate the contracts, i.e., treaties, to correct this situation and to reorganize our own thinking and assumptions to deal with the truth.

Now that you know the factual and long-standing truth— that the organization operating “as” your government isn’t actually your government and that it is a foreign, self-interested  commercial corporation that has not functioned as it is obligated to function—you can get on with the business of operating the government that you are owed: a government of the people, by the people, and for the people.

Our rights and property, which we hold dear, are not being wrested from us by any foreign invasion.  They can, however, be lost if we fail to step to the plate and do the job of self-governance mandated by our actual Constitution.

For months now, I have been telling people Coast to Coast to organize their local county governments and to operate as unincorporated associations, because the moment you incorporate anything you remove it from the land jurisdiction and place it (and its operations) under the Law of the Sea and in the international jurisdiction of the sea.

Can the land be represented by the sea?

I think not.

All these incorporated counties and “states of states” are operating in a foreign and improper jurisdiction.  They have all been seduced by federal corporation racketeering kickbacks called “federal block grants” and have been taken over by the criminally mis-administered federal corporation(s) and run as franchises, just like Dairy Queen franchises.

The only actual, true, legitimate government standing on the land jurisdiction of this entire country is vested in me and you and the unincorporated organizations that we operate on the land jurisdiction—- the actual county government and the actual state government owed to us is of the people, for the people and by the people, not of the corporation, by the corporation and for the corporation.

So it is imperative that while the international community deals with the bankrupt and criminal corporations that have been operating out of the District of Columbia— and with the British and French governments which are responsible for those corporate miscreants– that we, the American people, do our own dusting and cleaning.

The Colorado State is not the State of Colorado.

The Colorado State is the lawful business agent of the Colorado Nation and its people.  The State of Colorado is a franchise of a bankrupt foreign corporation.

Now that we have all that sorted out — please understand that we don’t have a dog in the fight that is coming to Washington, DC.  Please also be aware that you and your property interests have been properly and faithfully protected.

You need to understand that you are an American state national— one of the peaceful, honest people of America—not a war-mongering British Subject called a “United States Citizen” or “citizen of the United States” bent on piracy and promotion of corporate colonialism.

If what you want is your country back in your control, with all its peace and property intact, all its constitutional guarantees being honored, then it is time to take the following actions: (1) Record your “Expatriation Act” formally stating that you are a peaceful American State National reclaiming your birthright political status; (2) Organize your local Jural Assemblies; (3) Elect your local government officers— judges, sheriffs, assembly men, etc. — to operate the land jurisdiction government owed to you; (4) Pay no attention to what happens to the federal corporation(s) or to the incorporated counties or states of states.

These things aren’t your government.  They are actually none of your concern. They are just foreign corporations like Target here to provide governmental services to your States, and so long as you have sense enough to realize that that is what they are and maintain your identity as an American State National, not a “US citizen” of any stripe, all will be well with you and yours and the country you love.

Jacob Rothschild is making an offer to buy these bankrupt corporate entities and boot up a new organization calling itself the New Republic.  This is calculated to maintain some infrastructure and keep the peace— but now that you know the truth, you will realize that the “New Republic” is just a re-branding and new management for the whole federal corporate apparatus, and is not your actual government at all.  It’s just a new “governmental services corporation” coming on board — and it does not have a contract.  It is just offering its services and temporarily providing them.

As with any consumer contract, you aren’t any under obligation and neither are your States, beyond paying for actual stipulated services received on a month by month basis.

It will be up to you and your properly elected and actual Fiduciary Deputies to determine whether or not the New Republic gets the service contract and it will also be up to you to operate your own land jurisdiction government quite above and separate from their activities undertaken in behalf of actual British Subjects who are legitimately “United States Citizens” and in pursuit of their duties under The Constitution—-the actual one.

It will also be up to you and your actual Fiduciary Deputies whether or not the current oddball arrangement in which foreign corporations get to dictate your foreign policy, your trade policy, issue your national currency, and perform other vital functions that a mature nation should undertake for itself—endures.  It has obviously not worked for us and has caused great damage to other nations, so its continuance is not— in my opinion—desirable for us or anyone else.

We have indeed “spawned a new nation” in the words of Benjamin Franklin. It’s time for us to take our place among the nations as a fully functioning part of the world community, instead of playing the role of the Infant Terrible, being jerked around by foreign interests and used and abused to in turn use and abuse other nations.

The British and since WWII the French Governments have used the American people as bullies and commercial mercenaries and have done so in Breach of Trust. They have plundered our assets and mischaracterized us as British Subjects and hypothecated debt against our assets and made false claims against us. They have undermined our lawful government on the land and used legal chicanery as an excuse not to honor their obligations to us in the international jurisdiction of the sea.

Britain, like Cronos, the Father of the Titans, has attempted to eat all its colonial “children” and France has been seduced by the lure of easy money and power to follow suit.  Their criminal mis-administration of their faithful, if gullible, Allies stands as a grim warning to the entire world regarding the dangers of letting any incorporated profit-motivated entity provide governmental services.

And now we come to the end of this saga.

The New Republic is just the latest re-branding and new management ploy of the same old perpetrators and though it may be better managed than the old federal corporation, it is what it is, and it is NOT your government, not your Republic—-which you are owed.

In order to enjoy the blessing of your Republic, you have to get off your butts —and thanks to British chicanery— reclaim your birthright political status as American State Nationals: Coloradans, Virginians, Texans, etc. Having made that choice very clear, you need to organize your own local Jural Assemblies and elect your own local American Common Law court officers and local county government officials to run the counties owed the land jurisdiction of this country.

The only way to have a government of the people, by the people, and for the people is to accept the responsibility of self-governance. You cannot just “hire” someone to do it for you.

The United Nations and the Vatican Chancery and the Pope and the other governments involved in this fiasco and Jacob Rothschild and the Bank of International Settlements have all been given plenty of Due Process Notice regarding this whole circumstance.

They have Cause to Know that literally billions of innocent people— not only Americans, but Brits and Canadians and Aussies and Japanese and French and Germans and Indians and……have been victimized by this criminality in Breach of Trust and contract.

They have Cause to Know who the actual Priority Creditors of these criminal corporations are.   Competent Fiduciaries and Witnesses have informed the Heads of State and the Central Banks and the Divine Trust officials.

Your claims and the claims of your states of the Union have been properly brought forward and your assets have been re-conveyed to the land jurisdiction where they are owed every jot of the original and actual Constitution—and where they stand under the protection of the Spanish King and are not subject to any self-serving “presumptions” by Queen Bess in international jurisdiction.

Slowly, but surely, the same machinery that was abused to press-gang and defraud the living people to enrich the governmental services corporations is being employed and brought to bear to liquidate the offending corporations. That they are being dismantled and their assets seized and re-distributed to their creditors should be a cause of rejoicing and not any cause for bloodshed, strife, or even unrest.

As the Priority Creditors of all these various corporations the American States and the American People are in the cat-bird seat and have proposed both ways and means to provide for peaceable settlement that puts the power of the purse back where it belongs—- in the hands of individual people and unincorporated government structures operating in the best interests of the Public Good.

So, as far as the Blue Hats are concerned—-don’t be overly alarmed. Some elements of the old governmental services corporations may have to be removed.  There may be mass confusion.  Jacob Rothschild may be tempted to try to usurp position and pull another sleight of hand by pretending that his “New Republic” is your actual lawful government—-but as long as you know the truth and do your part to assemble your unincorporated land jurisdiction government, any action against you and your efforts would be instantly recognized as more corporate fraud.

The Central Bank and Government of France does not want to be accused of willful commercial fraud.  They are already in enough trouble for their failure to maintain oversight on the IMF and its operations on our shores as the UNITED STATES, INC.  Ditto the Central Bank and Government of England and the Central Bank and Government of Westminster.

So, no worries.  Just work to do.  And a better, more clear-eyed vision of the future and the world and your own role and responsibility in it.  If you see UN Troops move into Washington, DC—–yawn and go about your business.  It’s not your concern.  It’s not your government.  The “UNITED STATES” they are liquidating is just a corrupt and evil and bankrupt foreign commercial corporation being liquidated for cause.

It has nothing whatsoever to do with American State Nationals peacefully residing on the land.

Your own government resides within you and among you and in the organizations you create and operate on a local level –your own counties and states owed the land jurisdiction of this country.

Bottom line—- We, the People, have no dog in this fight and don’t be stupid enough to make a fight where there is none.

 

Let Lord Rothschild earn his money and clean up the mess his Government created.  And keep an eye on the crooks so that you don’t ever get defrauded and mischaracterized again.

DEESCALATING THE POLICE

“I have learned over the years that when one’s mind is made up, this diminishes fear; knowing what must be done does away with fear.”  Rosa Parks

Americans face a new crisis; police violence against citizens is escalating, blurring the line between criminal and public servant.

Escalating violence against American citizens by police has reached a bifurcation point, Americans are feeling the heat and are beginning to realize something must be done to deescalate police or soon America will join the ranks of hell holes of police crime and violence like Mexico, Haiti, Russia, Uzbekistan and elsewhere where police are independent gangs; violent and undisciplined and devolving into something closer to pirates – stealing property directly from their victims.

Horror stories of police murdering, beating, raping and plundering citizens are daily news in a cities large and small. One city, Albuquerque, NM is now murdering more people per capita than NYPD during arrests, yet NYC is 14 times more populated.

According to sources [1,2]:

“The APD routinely kills more suspects per capita than the NYPD, which serves a metro area 16 times the size of Albuquerque and has 34,000 officers to the APD’s 1,000. Since 2010, the APD has been involved in 37 shootings in which 23 people died. Between 2010 and March 2012, the APD was involved in 18 fatal shootings to the NYPD’s 22 in the same time period. No officer involved in any of the cases has been prosecuted or even fired, despite a body trail that suggests a department with wildly inappropriate use-of-force.” [1]

Albuquerque may be the top of the list of police murders, but police departments around the country are beginning to exhibit similar behavior and the increasing number of police brutality and violence incidences, all seemingly happening at the same time in unrelated areas of the country, begs the question why?

Recent headlines from sites like policebrutality.info highlight outrageous, egregious escalation of police brutality and violent gang like behavior, here are just a few recent headlines:

Escalating police violence and brutality is being witnessed and suffered by people around the country in towns large and small; the police are now far more dangerous to people than criminals.

There are numerous reasons for this type of police behavior with root causes to be found in a manufactured culture of fear and outsourcing of self responsibility to costumed authority groups with exaggerated legitimate authority.

Police are not arbitrators or representatives of a loving government acting in the capacity of surrogate parents; they are representatives of the state, looking for crimes committed against the state and the fines and fees that will result. Protection of people and their property are low priority, optional functions of police; for further proof see this article: “Justices Rule Police Do Not Have a Constitutional Duty to Protect Someone” [B]

WHATEVER YOU DO DON’T CALL THE POLICE

Family Calls 911 For Help With Special Needs Daughter, Cops Show Up And Shoot Her Dead: Neighbors claim girl was shot in the back

Headlines like the one above are clear indicators American’s are failing intheir duty as self responsible people and are voluntarily abdicating their rights and individualism.

Calling the police to solve family problems or other non life threatening issues is like inviting a Vampire into your home to help with a paper cut.

Americans have been pre-prepared for this abuse of police powers for decades; television and movies glorifying police powers go back into nineteen fifties. The events of 9-11 catapulted the glorification of police and firefighters and other “officers and authorities”, including using military as “homeland” protectors, into the position of a new religion.

TV shows depict people calling the police for all domestic problems; calling police in situations that historically and traditionally have never involved police or government social workers or any other agency of a soulless State.

CONGENITAL INCOMPETENCE

Collectivism is a psychologically damaging idea promoted and indoctrinated by enslavers; the idea we are our brother’s keeper and government or the “authorities” are the Biggest Brother. Collectivist doctrine encourages insinuating the State into the family structure of the organic human family.

Collectivism is a weaponized cultural virus-as-meme introduced by some to control all others. Collectivism is the mesmerizing mantra of a false culture working secretly at transferring individual responsibility and rights to a collection of nameless people for purposes of enslavement.

It is the promulgation of previously and tirelessly repudiated collectivist doctrine via national information channels such as public education, movies, books, magazine articles, news channels and via public drama depicted in reality shows and authority glorifying TV shows that normalizes appealing to a nameless servant of a cold and armed State to solve problems historically and naturally solved by family and friends.

Police and firefighters and military are now promoted as heroes in the news and police dramas airing on cable TV channels. The issue is not whether police and firefighters have dangerous jobs or, from time to time, that they may act heroically, the issue is about presenting police and other so-called “authorities” as a category of heroes. Presenting workers in these professions as heroes and always the good-guy is psychologically dangerous because it sets up a false representation of reality.

Historically government police and military and “officials” of a collectivist culture have been the most brutal and eventually evolve to be populated with the worse kinds of human beings – the opposite of good guys, in fact: the worst of mankind.

Collectivism holds that an individual has no rights, that his life and work belong to the group… and that the group may sacrifice him at its own whim to its own interests. The only way to implement a doctrine of that kind is by brute force — and statism has always been the political corollary of collectivism ” – Ayn Rand [emphasis added]

Police and other uniformed “officials” are public servants voluntarily serving and functioning in a position which has historically screened for certain personality characteristics – characteristics that were once thought to include superior morals, and a motivation to serve and protect others with intelligence levels sufficient to power a strength of will to think and act according to the rule of law and civilized behavior.

In America, the police officer must be aware of and act consistent with the fundamental principals of the U.S. Constitution and the Constitutions in their State of employment.

These are not the qualifications of a hero, rather the qualifications of honest, dedicated, fair, intelligent and morally sound individuals.

With television, the main stream corporate media, movies and the indoctrination of public education presenting the “authority” figure as a super hero with perceived “legitimate dominion” over the lives of the Citizen, it is easy to see how this mentally unhealthy contradiction of reality has empowered and embolden those given such exaggerated importance and authority.

FEDERALIZATION AND MILITARIZATION OF POLICE

It is clear the United States Federal government is encouraging and paying for city police, Sheriffs and State police departments to train more like military soldiers than public safety and peace officers. The federal government is providing training, weapons, and military hardware to police departments in an unprecedented effort to create police departments rivaling the characteristics of military armies.

A recent article on a website highlighting South Carolina news  

“noted Richland County Sheriff’s department receiving extra training as the “U.S. military carry out secretive ” and noisy ” joint exercise” [2]

 The article quoted the Sheriff as saying this joint exercise was

“Due to Sheriff Leon Lott’s longstanding commitment to making sure that deputies are trained and prepared for every event and potential threat and his desire to assist the military to ensure their preparations;” [2]

 Justification for training police in the tactics of the military always defaults to statements like Sheriff Lott’s above, citing a need to be prepared for every event and potential threat. It is important to point out, police are not soldiers and are not paid or required to fight against foreign hostile enemies or in the case of “every possible threat”. Police are civilian peace keepers, law enforcement officers and servants of the community; police are NOT Army, Navy, Air Force or Marines.

Training police to fight and react to civilian threats in a manner consistent with a military response to an opposing enemy can only lead to escalating police violence against Citizens. Military tactics are based on delivering catastrophic blows to a non-citizen enemy, using superior force and fire power while shooting first and asking questions later.

In an article recently published in the “The New American”, an interview in the Wall Street Journal is cited with writer Radley Balko , author of the “Rise of the Warrior Cop”, in which Balko notes “police are really becoming an internal military, freed from the bounds of limited equipment and limited authority the new police have become more like an occupying army, according to Balko”:

Driven by martial rhetoric and the availability of military-style equipment ” from bayonets and M-16 rifles to armored personnel carriers ” American police forces have often adopted a mind-set previously reserved for the battlefield. The war on drugs and, more recently, post-9/11 antiterrorism efforts have created a new figure on the U.S. scene: the warrior cop ” armed to the teeth, ready to deal harshly with targeted wrongdoers, and a growing threat to familiar American liberties.[3]

According to The New American, “Balko rightly connects the menace of the martial police with the decline in liberty and a disintegration of legal boundaries between sheriffs and generals”:

Americans have long been wary of using the military for domestic policing. Concerns about potential abuse date back to the creation of the Constitution, when the founders worried about standing armies and the intimidation of the people at large by an overzealous executive, who might choose to follow the unhappy precedents set by Europe’s emperors and monarchs.[3]

Training police as warriors is like having a standing army with no enemy; an enemy must be invented to continue to funding, training and justifying the army.

WAR IS DECLARED!

When the tyrant has disposed of foreign enemies by conquest or treaty, and there is nothing more to fear from them, then he is always stirring up some war or other, in order that the people may require a leader” Plato

“Of all the enemies to public liberty war is, perhaps, the most to be dreaded, because it comprises and develops the germ of every other. War is the parent of armies; from these proceed debts and taxes; and armies, and debts, and taxes are the known instruments for bringing the many under the domination of the few. In war, too, the discretionary power of the Executive is extended; its influence in dealing out offices, honors, and emoluments is multiplied; and all the means of seducing the minds, are added to those of subduing the force, of the people. . . . [There is also an] inequality of fortunes, and the opportunities of fraud, growing out of a state of war, and . . . degeneracy of manners and of morals. . . . No nation could preserve its freedom in the midst of continual warfare. . .” James Madison

The so-called “War on Drugs” has been a long standing excuse for escalating police violence and escalating military training and tactics of police. The “War On Drugs” was instrumental in building police SWAT teams and for adding military hardware to traditional police equipment, including automatic weapons, tanks and heavily armored vehicles.

The “War On Drugs” was originally packaged and sold to Americans as a way to minimize the use of illegal drugs, punish those selling “illegal” drugs and work against the overall drug supply. However it is clear the “Drug War” objective has not been achieved; drug use has remained the same year after year since 1970, while the cost of the “War” has risen each year – now totaling at least $1.5 trillion dollars and rising drug-war related violence has turned inner cities into war zones. [4]

9-28-2016-12-38-04-pm

The “War on Drugs” continues to consume more than 40 billion dollars per year, while destroying communities, families and lives of children. Children begin receiving drug related indoctrination in most 5th grade curriculums, promoting premature interest in drugs and the drug culture and eventually turning a percentage of those children in addicts and convicts. This indoctrination is to feed the war on drugs and is not an accidental by-product of creating a drug prohibition (Graphic: Stonerdays).

A secondary consequence of the War on Drugs is the world’s largest prison population, according to University of Chicago economist Gary Becker :

The total number of persons incarcerated in state and federal prisons in the U.S. has grown from 330,000 in 1980 to about 1.6 million today. Much of the increase in this population is directly due to the war on drugs and the severe punishment for persons convicted of drug trafficking. About 50% of the inmates in federal prisons and 20% of those in state prisons have been convicted of either selling or using drugs. The many minor drug traffickers and drug users who spend time in jail find fewer opportunities for legal employment after they get out of prison, and they develop better skills at criminal activities.”[5]

It is now clear that the “War on Drugs” is an abject failure and serves only to keep the prices of drugs high, while encouraging distribution and trafficking of narcotics through criminal organizations both in the governments and outside.

The “War On Drugs” is part of a medical monopoly to restrict the selling and distribution of legal and illegal drugs by only members of select group of pharmaceutical and illegal drug cartels; cartels cornering the market for mind altering and medical substances.

The “War On Drugs” serves to grow police forces and is a fuel for corruption and is also the source of funding for opposing gangs; monopoly prices activate market forces escalating tactics required to capture and hold market share. Rising drug profits covers the cost of escalating violence .

The “War On Drugs” is an excuse for escalating violence in cities and near the border with Mexico and is responsible for exploding prison populations in America and a massive growth in the prison industrial complex, including profitable private prisons operated as slave labor camps for inmates.

The wildly successful “War On Drugs”, successful because of the profitability to a select group of insiders, is a fantastic failure in terms of stated goals.

A WAR TO END ALL WARS

Consistent with the Federal government’s ever escalating war on American people, a new war has been launched; a new lifeline feeding the rise of the police state and an ever more brutal and violent attack on Americans: The “War On Terror.”

There are two levers for moving men: Interest and Fear. Napoleon Bonaparte

Fear is the master manipulator; fear is the tool used for creating violent and spiteful police departments like the one in Albuquerque New Mexico. Police departments relying on exaggerated and false predictions of “home grown” terrorism, have been panicked into preparing for some kind of war against America loving, patriotic, traditional values holding Americans.

Eric Holder Announces Task Force To Focus On “Domestic Terrorists”

To help feed this fear, the Federal government, and their pseudo-intellectual and complicit agents such as the Southern Poverty Law Center, are fostering a false narrative pretending traditional Americans will soon attack the government. Headlines, such as one above, chillingly expose the government’s continuing fanning of the flames of false flag fear.

To be “ready” for these “home grown terrorist”, police forces are also hiring former military and former mercenary officers trained in active and live combat to engage the “enemy” in a military fashion. While traditional police officers, seeing their police force transformed into military units and recoiling from the horror of escalating police violence, are quitting police departments, leaving these departments with fewer and fewer traditionally trained and non-war traumatized officers.

According to Dr. Paul Craig Roberts former assistant secretary of the Treasury and past editor of the Wall Street Journal :

The police have been militarized and largely federalized by the Pentagon and the gestapo Homeland Security. The role of the federal government in equipping state and local police with military weapons, including tanks, and training in their use has essentially removed the police from state and local control. No matter how brutal any police officer, it is rare that any suffer more than a few months suspension, usually with full pay, while a report is concocted that clears them of any wrong doing.

In America today, police murder with impunity. All the psychopaths have to say is, “I thought his wallet was a gun,” or “we had to taser the unconscious guy we found lying on the ground, because he wouldn’t obey our commands to get up.” [6]

After the False Flag attack on America during 9-11, fear of terrorism was seeded, grown and promoted – beginning first with a manufactured fear of Arabs and middle Eastern turban wearing men and then transforming into fear of terrorist in the form of white, Christian, Constitutional, limited government advocating, Citizens as Sovereigns – traditional Americans.

Using the hysteria of pretended eminent terrorist attacks, (according to dailyKos the odds of dying as a result of terrorism are 1 in 20 MILLION, you have better odds of dying from a lightning strike or a shark attack or legal execution), the police have been transformed into brutal, unresponsive to citizen safety, wrecking balls – threatening to tear away the line between criminals and police. [7]

 According to Paul Craig Roberts :

The facts seem to support the case that police in the US commit more crimes and acts of violence against the public than do the criminals who do not wear badges. According to the FBI crime Statistics http://www.fbi.gov/about-us/cjis/ucr/crime-in-the-u.s/2010/crime-in-the-u.s.-2010/summary in 2010 there were 1,246,248 violent crimes committed by people without police badges. Keep in mind that the definition of violent crime can be an expansive definition. For example, simply to push someone is considered assault. If two people come to blows in an argument, both have committed assault. However, even with this expansive definition of violent crimes, police assaults are both more numerous and more dangerous, as it is usually a half dozen overweight goon thugs beating and tasering one person.

The police situation in the United States is only going to get worse. The coming deliberate and artificially created banking and financial collapse will bring on exceedingly more difficult times for a large section of the American population. Growing unemployment, made worse by a usurped Federal government’s withdrawal of unemployment benefits and a reduction of food stamp purchasing power will lead to civil unrest and an explosion of unaccountable police violence.

The time is now to take steps to ‘deescalate’ the police and stop the violence and end the military occupation of cities and towns and countrysides.

WE THE PEOPLE DECLARE

That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. -Declaration of Independence

All it takes to push back tyranny is to actually push back. Do this alone or with a group of friends and family. Contact your city, county and state government “officials” demanding they make changes to the governing policies of police departments.

Letters written to civilian elected “officials” with governing powers, such as your local County Commissioners, Sheriffs, city councils and state level representatives is also required, so the “officials” understand you are withdrawing consent for growing abuse and violence of police and other armed agencies of the government.

This is a short list of demands a Citizen can rightfully make of their local police departments:

Reduce antagonizing and aggressive appearance of police forces.

Note: Philipp Zimbardo in his book the “Lucifer Effect” noted “a legitimate-seeming authority figure” donning masks or costumes (uniforms and badges and sunglasses and external symbols of authority) “were significantly more likely to torture, mutilate, and kill their enemies than warriors in cultures that didn’t engage in self-disguise.” [A]

 

  • Police and public servants should not be wearing sunglasses when speaking to a citizen
  • Eliminate muscle cars and tinted windshields
  • No military style black full tactical or full armor outfits
  • Have police fully pull off highways during a traffic stop — reducing danger to the officer and allowing traffic to flow freely around stopped vehicles.
  • Reduce intensity of blue lights so other motorists can see during a night time traffic stop
  • Eliminate potentially disastrous police protocol and behavior
  • Zero tolerance for the high speed chase
  • Limit the number of officers and units responding to routine police calls
  • Eliminate NO KNOCK warrants and forced entry before notification
  • Severely limit SWAT team use to precisely defined situations
  • Make department heads responsible for excessive force
  • Fire officers with history of violence against citizens and offenders

Return or refuse to accept out of place and hyperbolic military hardware

  • No tanks or MRAPs or other former military armored vehicles
  • No automatic weapons of any kind
  • No exotic weapons systems ( sound cannons, microwave weapons etc )

Refuse military training and Federal training and drills with scenarios depicting stereotyped historically honored American groups as “home grown terrorists”

  • No racial group scenarios as drill themes.
  • No drills with scenarios demonizing historically honored American groups including but not limited to :
    • Veterans
    • Gun Owners
    • Constitution Supporters
    • Libertarians
    • Political party affiliation groups such as the Tea Party
    • Christians
    • Other religious groups
  • No school “live action” drills terrorizing school children with blood and blank ammunition — These “drills” are psychologically damaging to children and must be stopped.

Organize citizen Review Boards for police force activity guidance and criticism

  • Create citizen review boards external from police for providing guidance and police policy review
  • Create citizen review boards for examining cases of police brutality and excessive violence

As a citizen it is possible to create public, but external and without public funding, group to monitor police behavior and recommend policy changes when required. In fact, according to Human Rights Watch, “Shielded from Justice: Police Brutality and Accountability in the United States :

“A study of 17 law enforcement agencies found that citizen review boards sustain police brutality complaints at a higher percentage than do the police themselves, suggesting that such boards operate more fairly…” [9]

To force police departments to become accountable, citizens can form county and city Citizen Review Boards to advocate punishment and replacement of leaders in police organization hierarchy when brutality and violence against citizens and offenders becomes egregious.

Citizen review boards are typically met with “considerable opposition from the law enforcement community” [10], but such resistance is like an employee telling the owner how he wants the company run.

Through activism, citizens can insist police departments revamp hiring guidelines to favor non military, non mercenary applicants over those having served in repeated combat missions.

Police are paid by citizens and according to the Constitution and the Declaration of Independence, the powers of government, including the police departments are delegated to the government by the people and FOR the people.

Police and other “authorities” serve the people – they are not surrogate mothers or fathers or masters – they are servants which have become dysfunctional and inconvenient.

Police forces like the one in Albuquerque New Mexico can be brought under control by firing those in current positions of leadership and publicly advertising for replacements meeting the new police standards as described above. Officers with histories of violence against citizens should be removed immediately with failure to do so probable cause for civil law suits against these departments.

Many citizens have learned to fear the law enforcement system as violence and physical assault by police is now a daily occurrence. In addition to the physical violence, there is the economic violence as states, counties and towns now swarm on motorists like ticks seeking blood – using so-called moving violations, victimless crime, as major source of revenue; civil asset forfeiture and the ubiquitous DWI/DUI leading the top 5 ways to plunder during a traffic stop.

Police forces feeding on people is clearly creating rising tensions between the public-as-food and the police-as-predator with ever escalating violence and confrontation as the natural consequence.

It is incumbent on citizens to tell local systems of government using police as a major source of revenue generation will not be tolerated and those holding public office will be removed at the next election unless the predation stops. These same government representatives must also be put on notice: police brutality is a crime and these criminals will be prosecuted and, using the principle of vicarious liability, all those in the chain of command above those directly in charge will also be prosecuted.

42 U.S.C. ” 1983, commonly referred to as “section 1983” provides:

Every person who under color of any statute, ordinance, regulation, custom, or usage, of any State or Territory or the District of Columbia, subjects, or causes to be subjected, any citizen of the United States or other person within the jurisdiction thereof to the deprivation of any rights, privileges, or immunities secured by the Constitution and laws, shall be liable to the party injured in an action at law, Suit in equity, or other proper proceeding for redress, except that in any action brought against a judicial officer for an act or omission taken in such officer’s judicial capacity, injunctive relief shall not be granted unless a declaratory decree was violated or declaratory relief was unavailable.[8]

Bringing charges against police in civil suits for assault and brutality is a way to punish officers outside the internal affairs process of police departments. Many people are brutalized by police which is then justified with resisting arrest charges. Civil suits bringing police videos and witnesses to bear against trumped up “resisting” charges are absolutely necessary to stop this kind of rampant police abuse.

All we have to do to stop the police violence is do something — little efforts by many people have the cumulative force of large efforts by smaller groups. Everyone can DEMAND more accountable and less aggressive police forces.

Finally, it is important for all people to withdraw consent for increasing police intrusion in our lives. Do not call the police unless it is a life threatening situation. Dialing 9-11 involves giving up your self responsibility each time it is dialed. Solve your own problems, ask your family and friends for help — break down the barriers preventing strong family and friend relationships and excommunicate the third party, unrelated, “bigger brother”.

The Antithesis of what our Founding Fathers Designed. +

09/27/2016

www.arkansasfreedom.com

By Joe McCutchen

Ignorance does not have to be permanent, but if cultivated can evolve into stupidity—Observe today’s America. The antithesis of what our Founding Fathers designed.

September 11, 2016

America is too large to govern and the application of a few Band-Aids may slow the wasting process of local, state & federal governments. President Richard Nixon divided the U.S. into 10 Federal Districts—for what purpose?

Americans are suckers for bread & circuses—entertain ‘em, keep their bellies full, & dwell on emotional phony issues.  All is accomplished by the government/media complex by conditioning, propagandizing, indoctrinating, and lies.

A deadly game being played out for Americans by Americans, and in most cases to satisfy  the demands of Jews, duel-citizens & Israelis. Government’s effective political commercial is to “Keep us Safe”. Governmental agencies are directing the circus (by preemptive Wars, etc.) and are now middleclass Americans’ enemy #1 and such is the case with most of the global community.

Who else but the U.S. is destroying whole countries, unprovoked?  Murdering millions with preemptive wars in its quest to achieve global hegemony. And who are some of the major insider/outsider players? Look no further than to establishment Jews.  For starters: Soros, Murdoch, the de Rothchilds, Gaffney, Perle, Bolton, Mercer, Kagans, Krauthammer, Abrams, Wurmser, Feith, Chertoff, J. Goldberg, M. Levine, Kristol, Brooks, Boot, Ladeen, Libby,  Frum, Kissinger, Koch Bros., Podhoretz, Morris Dees (SPLC), Adelson, and the lord of all, Paul Wolfowitz who is the architect of the “Wolfowitz Doctrine”…”We shall have no rivals”—Abram Shulsky (author of “weapons of mass destruction”) was Director of the Office of Special Plans for G. Bush.  To add to the mix throw in a few white boys to carry out the Wolfowitz Doctrine; (neocons all) Bush & Clinton Crime Families, McCain, Graham, Cotton, Boozman, Womack, Crawford, Rove, Cruz, Ryan, Romney, Kasich, Sasse, Bozell III, Whitmans, O’Reilly & Beck, et al…remember, this is just a smattering. The U.S. House & Senate are messenger boys & enablers for Israel.  For more complete information on the subject of Jewish control of America search “America’s Trail of Tears, Are We There Yet” @ www.arkansasfreedom.com

What about “American exceptionalism?” I say American’s exceptionalism segued to murder, destruction, displacement, spying, and creating $20 TRiLLION national debt—now that’s exceptionalism.

The murdering psychopaths in DC that you ignoramuses continue to reelect for decades, based solely on Party affiliation, have now massed troops on the Russian frontier bordering Estonia, Latvia, & Poland, provoking President Putin, who in my judgment is presently the only legitimate global statesman, and is pursuing a lasting peace initiative with the U.S. to no avail.   Citizens, believing the lies of government and the 4th estate, reinforced with indoctrination, conditioning, deception, & emotion, make DC inhabitants smile knowing they can continue to hoodwink Americans while they destroy peace & civility.

Bread & Circuses: America offers a splendid array of B & C’s for government’s conditioning, propagandizing, indoctrinating, military recruitment and their cry for eternal war…all directed at useful citizen idiots, e.g. football, basketball, baseball, soccer, rodeos,  & land grant colleges, and oh yes, public schools, on & on. Note that many of these venues consistently present military adoration—a cancer.

Since 911 there have been 3 outstanding heroes (non-military), 2 American & 1 Aussie….Snowden, Manning, & Assange—who made America aware of the absolute total corruption of the U.S. Government & are paying a dear price for their honesty & courage.

Using NASCAR as a poster child for the Bread & Circuses analogy—upon entering a raceway, first finding your seat, followed by the race car lineup on the track.

At that juncture you see a cadre of military in uniforms of some descript, followed by a uniformed military color guard doing basic ceremonial maneuvers related to the American flag. At some events the flag may be half the size of the state Rhode Island, at which time the military salutes & the singing of the National Anthem, the singer’s own pathetic rendition, mostly by women, commonly off key, punctuated with inappropriate yea, yeas, mispronouncing words and/or omissions…with thunderous applause from ignoramuses in the stands. Then comes the flyover with 2-3 SNJ’s or AT6’s.

At some venues the audience is asked to stand, remove their headdress, hand over heart & cite the Pledge of Allegiance. The pledge is an anti-constitutional, anti-state sovereignty piece written by a retired preacher, a flaming socialist by the name of Francis Bellamy. Simply put, we are not members of an American State, but meant to be a collection of 50 sovereign states that the Founders deemed had every right to engage in nullification & secession without violence. The despot Abraham Lincoln terminated that portion of the Founders intent by pitting Americans against Americans and Republicans stupidly or intentionally call themselves the Party of Lincoln.

Government has again accomplished one of their goals, i.e. military displays at public events will continue to be a substantial part of the conditioning process of useful idiots to believe that the military should be part & parcel of every American experience. Recall the Founders fear & loathing of a standing army.

The point of these military spectacles is simply they are to be used as an emotional recruiting tool, a plea for more war, a plea that we are militarily threatened, and citizens should come to expect what the government claims as a patriotic ceremonial experience accompanied with whoops & hollers.

It’s about the big lie, “To keep us safe”!  The ignoramuses, victims of the public schools haven’t comprehended & won’t, that the Enemy Are Us—the voters!

  1. The major portion of the voting public refuses to analyze what has & is happening to our once preeminent Republic and who has caused it & who is to blame—namely, they are the incumbents they continue to reelect.
  2. DC is an island to itself, & certainly no allegiance to middleclass Americans (as witnessed by the conduct of the Republican Establishment this year), busily selling out our culture, heritage & philosophy that has given way to throngs of 3rd world invaders, legal & illegal. Diversity means No Whites. Why is our government trading down?
  3. A complete & immediate shakeup of the Flag Corp.
  4. Leave no incumbent standing.
  5. Extricate the military from public events, supplant with appropriate state flags, state songs & a peaceful setting.

A simple solution: there is only one individual running for a position in our national government that deserves our vote—Donald J. Trump. Incumbents begin their political careers as paupers or near paupers and become wealthy. SINCE THEY ARE SO GOOD IN THE ART OF ACCOUNTING FOR THEMSELVES, HOW IS IT THEN “WE THE PEOPLE’ OWE A NATIONAL DEBT OF $20 TRILLION & $120 TRILLION IN UNFUNDED MANDATES?

If Hillary Clinton is elected POTUS, then immediate attention must be given to a peaceful means to restore nullification & secession, which was the Founding Fathers’ intent.  Each state from Sec. of Treasury Hamilton through Lincoln was a sovereign entity until 1865. In the year 1800, Vermont specifically, & later all of New England tried for 10 years to secede from the Jefferson government & others, and never was a sword drawn.

We are the proud recipients of secession from England.

 ON THE CUSP OF TOTAL CHAOS

http://www.rebelmadman.com/?p=522

By Michael Gaddy

We are beginning to see in this country an unraveling of the societal fabric. The government’s decades-long efforts at fomenting a race war are coming to fruition. The trillions of dollars spent bombing people into the stone age have brought across our open borders millions of enemies who wish to harm anyone connected to this country. Since these people do not command armies or navies they will use whatever means and weapons are available to them.

I call this chaos. Many I am sure will refer to it as anarchy, but they would be incorrect. Anarchy is defined as “without leaders.” It does not differentiate between good leaders and bad leaders, it just means without leaders. Government and its shills would have you believe that chaos is anarchy because it supports the state’s agenda with their pronouncement that being without government is anarchy.

History shows governments are much more prone to chaos than is anarchy. Our government today is a prime example. Years and years of socialist doctrine and promoting racial divide is now coming home to roost. Riots in the streets, shootings, and murder every hour of every day. Inner cities are a war zone. That, people, is chaos. For decades the government has stated we have problems that only that government can remedy provided they take enough of our freedoms and money. Then, when their programs and wars turn to chaos they remind us they need more of our freedoms and money and then everything will be fine. But it never is. Yet, the faithful keep voting.

Robert Higgs in his book, “Crisis and Leviathan: Critical Episodes in the Growth of American Government” makes a valid point about what governments have done and what anarchy hasn’t.

Anarchists did not try to carry out genocide against the Armenians in Turkey; they did not deliberately starve millions of Ukrainians; they did not create a system of death camps to kill Jews, gypsies, and Slavs in Europe; they did not firebomb scores of large German and Japanese cities and drop nuclear bombs on two of them. They did not carry out a “Great Leap Forward” that killed scores of millions of Chinese; they did not attempt to kill everybody with any appreciable education in Cambodia; they did not launch one aggressive war after another; they did not implement trade sanctions that killed perhaps 500,000 Iraqi children.

In debates between anarchists and statists the burden of proof clearly should rest on those who place their trust in the state. Anarchy’s mayhem is totally conjectural, the state’s mayhem is undeniably, factually horrendous.”

Governments with elected leaders have brought untold death and destruction to our world. In the 20th Century alone government’s murdered over 200 million of their own citizens. Governments and their leaders, especially in our country, frequently operate outside the limits delegated to them by their citizens, yet, those citizens continue to support those unconstitutional governments with votes, blood and money, somehow hoping their government will, by magic, revert to its primary task and cleanse itself of corruption. Gonna take a lot of “hoping” to get that job done.

Americans are a strange lot; they claim they want constitutional government yet continue to support with votes and money political parties and leaders who openly admit they will not honor their sacred oaths to uphold and defend and actually promise to violate that oath many times while campaigning. To counter their obvious insanity and complicity in the corruption of their own government, they appeal to hope for help.

Patrick Henry warned us all 228 years ago: “Guard with jealous attention the public liberty. Suspect everyone who comes near that precious jewel. Unfortunately nothing will protect it but downright force. When you give up that force you are ruined.”

Behold what the Public Fool System and the support for entitlement programs and unconstitutional, tyrannical wars has brought us. Americans, instead of guarding the public liberty, continually vote for politicians who they know will violate their sacred oaths and remove even more of our liberties. Many claim they do so to keep themselves and their families safe. Balderdash–how can anyone keep you safe by killing and bombing people whose relatives and fellow countrymen will eventually find a way to retaliate, especially if you leave your borders unprotected and pay them to immigrate.

Our government’s insanity has been ongoing for years, yet millions continue to support that corrupt government with votes and perverted patriotism. How can you distrust a government completely yet believe that same government’s employees should be honored and their actions deemed heroic? The heroic action for these employees would be to honor one’s oath to uphold and defend against all enemies foreign and DOMESTIC! Ah, several former government employees have attempted to do just that. But the perverted patriots call them traitors. Just ask Edward Snowden, Chelsea (Bradley) Manning, Thomas Drake, John Kiriakou, Jeffrey Sterling and many others. Those who have demonstrated true patriotism are called traitors by a government of criminals while legions of perverted patriots cheer wildly. And we wonder at the chaos we now see in our streets and ignore even more chaos on the horizon. This chaos was not brought to you by anarchists, it was brought to you by the politicians you vote for.

So, as you begin to prepare to listen to tonight’s debate between two candidates who have been thoroughly vetted by the power cabal/deep state/international bankers, please count for me all the times either of those candidates refers to the limits on government established by our founders; all the times they mention Samuel Adams, Thomas Jefferson or Patrick Henry; and what you have to lean on constitutionally with the candidate you choose to vote for.

If you come away from this debate with anything more than “hope” that things will get better instead of worse in this country, please pass that along. But, as a friend sent to me on Sunday, remember, “hope is neither a course of action nor a force multiplier.”

One of the saddest lessons of history is this: If we have been bamboozled long enough, we tend to reject any evidence of the bamboozle. We are no longer interested in finding out the truth. The bamboozle has captured us. It’s simply too painful to acknowledge, even to ourselves, that we have been taken. Once you give a charlatan power over you, you almost never get it back.” ~Carl Sagan

Don’t forget to tune in tonight as millions of the bamboozled take their seat to watch two of the chosen perform their slight of hand and word.

History teaches you cannot regain liberty, power and freedom by voting for evil–regardless if it is the greater or the lesser.

A nation of sheep will beget a government of wolves.” ~Edward R. Murrow

Tune in to national TV tonight and watch as millions of sheep cheer on their favorite wolf.

IN RIGHTFUL REBEL LIBERTY

Who Wants To Be A Carbon Trillionaire?

09/26/2016

https://steemit.com/climate/@corbettreport/who-wants-to-be-a-carbon-trillionaire

9-26-2016-10-33-50-am

by James Corbett
corbettreport.com
September 26, 2016

Eat your heart out, Al Gore. Being a carbon billionaire is so passé now that we’re in the age of the $100 trillion climate swindle. So the real question is who (or at least which corporate front) will be the first carbon trillionaire? Will it be a carbon eugenics promoting Rockefeller or a global government promoting Rothschild, or a carbon divesting Saudi government, or one of the shady hedge funds that are spearheading weather derivatives and other Enron-developed financial instruments to try to cash in on the carbon fraud?

Whatever the answer, one thing is for certain: you won’t see this question asked (let alone answered) in the establishment gatekeeping press. Instead you will see endless iterations of the accusation that anyone who disbelieves in the woo woo pseudoscience of climate catastrophism is funded by the very Big Oil oiligarchs who stand to benefit from the debunked climate scare.

Both mainstream press and pseudo-alternatives religiously trot out hit pieces from attack sites like Desmogblog to smear scientists and avoid actual scientific debate (which, for the record, the alarmists always lose). Conveniently left out of this chapter-and-verse reliance on Desmogblog is the fact that it is a PR front itself whose primary benefactor is a convicted money launderer. More to the point, they can’t even research or accurately report on the most basic facts. I should know; when I started my ClimateGate.tv website with a free WordPress template and about $5/month of GoDaddy hosting they produced a laughable article claiming that the website was a tv station that was being funded by Big Oil.

No, there’s not time at all in the mainstream press to raise even the slightest question about the hundreds of billions that are already being pumped into the carbon scam from government and institutional investors around the world or the tens of trillions that are expected to be spent in the coming decades. Instead, all of the media coverage is focused on the other side of the issue: who funds those who critique this (demonstrably incorrect) “consesnsus” on global warming?

A perfect case in point is the “exposé” that was published in the LA Times and InsideClimate News last year alleging that Exxon had the entire global warming puzzle solved as far back as the 1970s…and then actively worked to cover up that information. Never mind that they didn’t actually withhold any of their research or findings from the public, and never mind their conclusion (namely, that the massive uncertainty surrounding climate variables meant that they had no clear picture of what is actually happening in the climate) was neither well-informed nor cause for panic; the narrative was already set.

A massive “#ExxonKnew” campaign was organized around the reports and New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman’s claim that he would organize a posse of state AGs to investigate and prosecute Exxon for…something. Unsurprisingly, that campaign has disintegrated, not least because “investigators simply don’t know what a climate model is.”

But here’s the kicker: The original report was published by the LA Times and InsideClimate News, but it wasn’t reported by them. It was reported by fellows at the Energy and Environmental Reporting Project at Columbia University’s Graduate School of Journalism, which just happens to receive its funding from…(drum roll please)…”the Energy Foundation, Open Society Foundations, Rockefeller Brothers Fund, Rockefeller Family Fund, Lorana Sullivan Foundation and the Tellus Mater Foundation.”

Oh, and InsideClimate News (ICN)? The director of the Rockefeller Family Fund admitted earlier this year that the Rockefellers are pumping millions of dollars into organizations like ICN to promote their climate agenda. Of course, David Sassoon, ICN’s publisher, was a former Rockefeller Brothers Fund employee, and Michael Northrup, an ICN Board Member, directs the Sustainable Development grantmaking program at RBF. As the New York Times admitted as far back as 2013, ICN is “an outgrowth of Mr. Sassoon’s consulting work for the Rockefeller Brothers Fund, a philanthropic group that emphasizes climate policy.”

I could go on and on and on and on and on about the real sources of climate hysteria funding, and who really stands to benefit from claiming that the world is ending…unless you hand over your money and your rights to the UN, of course.

Of course, every time these topics are raised someone will say (quite correctly) that just because the Rockefellers and Rothschilds and Soros and other globalist scions are promoting the global warming agenda with such ferocity doesn’t mean that the science behind the global warming scare is itself wrong. (Of course, this usually comes from the same people who claim that there is Big Oil (you mean, Rockefeller?) money behind every climate  realist, so take their concern for logical fallacies with a grain of salt.)

OK, fair enough. Let’s discuss the science. Let’s discuss the models that are based on equilibrium sensitivity values that are derived from demonstrably flawed math, and how the IPCC has actively worked to bury that story. Let’s discuss the lack of global warming fingerprint in the satellite record. Let’s discuss the statistical trickery upon which this “consensus science” is based. Let’s talk about how conservation success is being used to dishonestly push global warming narratives. Let’s talk about the fundamental gaps in knowledge of basic climatic systems, like the grudging admission that the Antarctic is actually gaining ice, not losing it as previously claimed. Let’s discsuss the 18 year 8 month long pause in global “warming” (which, after a brief El Nino break, could be back by December). Let’s talk about “treemometers” and the unbelievable cherry picking of data that led to the long-debunked hockey stick. Let’s talk about the fudging of the temperature record to make the past cooler and the present warmer. Let’s talk about scientists actively colluding to keep non-alarmist science out of the literature. Let’s talk about any of the hundreds of scientific issues surrounding this highly problematic and highly uncertain field of study that has done nothing but produce dramatically incorrect predictions about the climate so far.

…Or maybe you’d like to go back to discussing how all skeptical science is secretly funded by Big Oil.

So who are the real deniers? And where are their paychecks coming from? And why on earth should the public put blind faith in the pronouncement of Rockefeller/Rothschild/Soros funded publications on these issues, especially when there are literally trillions of dollars hinging on the science skewing towards alarmism?

The coming election is a side show, part of the circus in a world of bread and circuses, staged to distract America from the real issues of the day; preventing people from contemplating the real decision on the ballot of reality.

THE DIALECTIC

The dialectic is a managed, false, psychologically engineered means to control thought and use manufactured events to create “Reactions” to pre-manufactured “Problems”, followed with an offering of two “solutions.”

The solutions are always the same with only cosmetic differences and the architects of both solutions originate at the same source. For a pure example of the use of the dialectic in the control and ultimate capture and destruction of America see the Federal Reserve Act versus the Senator Aldrich Bill and pay attention to the “Crisis – ‘Bipartisan Commission’ – Solution”

The “2016 campaign trail” was used to create a voting narrative, a simple and sharply bipolar dialectic – focusing American’s attention on just two options for solving the deliberately created problems of the current American political-economic system.

The election dialectic between the radical lawless left as portrayed by Clinton versus the nationalist, “Make America Great Again” right and alt-right of Donald Trump, has been stretched tight like a bubble ready to burst. The dialectic is a deception to create ‘radical’ division between classes of people, and to agitate for a race war between ethnic groups (namely Negroes and Hispanics and Whites.)

The desired solution is not about the candidate, chosen by election, to lead the existing United States, but rather to position for a chaos which will result in a call for a new America creating an opening for ‘radical change’ in government of the United States of America. It’s at this time when European, traditional Americans, will be forced to make real decisions regarding the fate of their country and culture while questioning the nature of life to be, post America.

 RACE, CULTURE, AND NATIONALISM

These real issues will be violently forced into focus because America has been looted, and the White European, Organic America is under attack. The enemy is simultaneously attacking White Western civilizations wherever they are found across the world.

The desired effect will be a worldwide power change, a New World Order arising out of the chaos of destruction.

The immediate decisions facing Americans, requiring a vote of will and courage, are straight forward and can no longer be concealed by bread and circuses and fake dialectics.

Do European Americans have the will to stand and, if necessary, take back what has been stolen from them and their legacy?

Or, will European Americans allow themselves to be dissolved into a slurry of multicultural obscurity, leaving Western Civilization and its incredible creations such as, art, literature, science, buildings, transportation, technology, and the world’s most advanced culture to decay while the lights of civilization go dark?

For an example of a world where the White culture has been forced out, investigate South Africa under the African National Congress or the ruins of Detroit City in Michigan.

The Western financial systems collapse has been deliberately created and pushed to the breaking point; the collapse is coming just like winter.

The enemy forces are seeking to create a fake narrative to explain the financial crisis, while using the crisis to change, forever, the nature of the American government and the racial structure of power and culture in America.

The coming catastrophic collapse of the American financial system will be a stunner, like a Mike Tyson right hook to the body, followed by the finishing uppercut. Americans reeling from the pain will have to think fast and clearly because experts are standing by to turn trouble into demonic destruction.

RACE WARS TO WEAKEN AND DISTRACT

“Anti-racism” is a fabricated, weaponized meme, and the morons enlisted to proselytize, are tools of racial destruction, pitting races against race and empowering white hatred, while claiming the opposite.

Race is an asset at stake in the coming war, a prize or spoil of a war fermenting. The White race has been targeted world wide for genocide; it’s winner take all.

Do Europeans have the will to defend their race and the cultures it created?

RACE IS EVERYTHING

Benjamin Disraeli, the first Jewish Prime Minister of Briton said in the mid 19th century:

“No one may be indifferent to the racial principle, the racial question. It is the key to world history. History is often confusing because it is written by people who did not understand the racial question and the aspects relevant to it… Race is everything, and every race that does not keep its blood from being mixed will perish… Language and religion do not determine a race—blood determines it.”

All races have Natural Law rights to self preservation and can claim moral authority within in their group to fight to survive. Each race is a component of the beauty and expression of the Earth, a true diversity and uniqueness which must fight to prevent their genocide.

However, there are people on Earth, cleverly bundled under the banner and flags of race and religion. A slick well organized group of supremacists who have doubly protected their agenda using weaponized language, systematic falsifying of history and perfected psychological technologies. These supremacists have declared themselves a race-religion; a “chosen” group of elites who are self-ordained to rule the world. This group believes it can rightfully, and morally, asserting the moral doctrine of their religious myth, destroy all Earth’s races (except their own), and like Frankenstein-as-god, blend and create a New World Man, a mono-race, with mono-culture, sculpted in the image of these new gods, and existing only to serve them.

The new man shall be a docile, subservient man, incapable of self-determination and forever unable to organize along true divisions of strength, ingenuity, and productive power. In this “Brave New World”, the fittest will not be allowed to survive; by decree the new world order will be inhabited by the most depraved, intellectually sterile, and the least imaginative. And, it is these people who will envision the future and dominate the planet.

A new world where the most “under” of “under-dog” shall rise to the top of the pack and rule over a monotonous, dull and dumb-downed brown man; ruling as Shepherds controlling their food flock.

“Everybody has a plan until they get punched in the mouth” – Mike Tyson

 DO WE HAVE A PLAN?

The real election for Americans is coming, an honest, by fire, decision (vote) on the issues of white genocide, cultural suicide, and the repeal of universal slavery.

There will be no candidates in this election because there is no remaining legitimate system of government in America; this election will decide whether their will ever be a legitimate system of government again.

In the remaining time it would be prudent to think about your choices in the Real, Honest election and consider history as a guide to the outcomes of this election.

Do White people concede they have no right to continue their race, culture and civilizations on Earth. Do Europeans concede all of their accomplishments, science, art, medicine, technology and tools of self defense to those who will most assuredly use them to destroy White Civilization at large and the entire White race?

Do the other races on Earth agree to the eventual blending away of their uniqueness, giving way to a one-race, one-culture, New World Order, fully embracing a new dark age; and, imagining looking through the glass darkly, most of mankind will be seen forever as a slave to a mentally ill master?

It would only take a small number of, perhaps “6 million”, people in America to wake up and commit to doing what Americans can do better than any others on Earth, reclaim, rebuild and rationally protect itself and Western Civilization from this parasite. Taking back that which is ours, while leaving to all races the respect and right to their own preservation and growth around the world.

“It does not require a majority to prevail, but rather an irate, tireless minority keen to set brush fires in people’s minds.” – Samuel Adams.

A New World Order can emerge, a world built around real diversity and institutionalized vigilance against the violence of “Anti-Racism” – ie., the hatred of all races.

A New World Order must be built which seeks to minimize the incidence of organized mental illness, while noticing institutions structured by pathological narcissism and psychopath personalities and then, making public, through competitive media, information squelching the growth of outbreaks of such cultural malignancies.

It’s time to make a plan.

For the White man it is important to remember “no man is an island” and groups must form. Choose your heritage and following your intuition, motivated people can rightfully and morally claim and defend what is theirs.

“The doom of a nation can be averted only by a storm of flowing passion, but only those who are passionate themselves can arouse passion in others.” – Adolf Hitler

UN’s “New Urban Agenda” to Assault Liberty in a City Near You

09/23/2016

by  Alex Newman

With its “New Urban Agenda” set to be formally adopted by dictators and member governments next month, the United Nations is plotting its latest monumental assault on private property, the free enterprise system, national sovereignty, and human liberty. Taken as a whole, the UN’s radical new plan outlines a vision of an Orwellian world order of centrally planned, “compact” mega-cities run and guided by UN dictates and under total surveillance. Despite all the nice-sounding rhetoric about “equality” and “prosperity,” the text of the document also demands policies that have been repeatedly proven to cause misery, inequality, poverty, and death. Humanity should resist.

The UN’s “New Urban Agenda” seeks to hijack control from local voters and communities over the way cities and “human settlements” are “planned, designed, financed, developed, governed, and managed,” the document explains. The draft UN agreement, set to be “approved” at the UN Habitat III summit in Quito, Ecuador, next month, also purports to lay down “priorities and actions at the global, regional, national, sub-national, and local levels” that should be imposed on humanity. Why the dictator-dominated UN ought to be involved in local or even national policy in the first place is never adequately explained throughout the agenda’s 24 pages.

What is clear, though, is that, if implemented, humanity will be subjected to unprecedented government controls on literally everything. That the UN envisions central economic planning, which has resulted in tens or even hundreds of millions of preventable deaths over the last century, is clear from the document itself. Consider, for example, the UN’s demand that cities, in submission to the global agenda, “change to sustainable consumption and production patterns.” There is only one way for consumption and production patterns to be “changed” to fit the UN agenda, and that is through government control over consumption and production.

For evidence of how well the strategy works (or not), a quick trip to the enslaved nations of Cuba or North Korea that practice government control over consumption and production might be illuminating. The two are among the poorest nations on Earth. The former Soviet Union and other communist states also provide bountiful historical evidence of the brutality, terror, and death that is so often associated with central planning and government control. Yet the UN document gets even more explicit, using overtly Marxist rhetoric in calling on authorities to ensure “equal access for all to economic and productive resources and opportunities.”

In other words, private property rights need to be severely limited, if not quashed entirely. The rest of the document makes that clear, too, as do previous UN Habitat reports that explicitly call for ending private land ownership.

Redistribution is also key. “We will support the development of vertical and horizontal models of distribution of financial resources to decrease inequalities across sub-national territories, within urban centers, and between urban and rural areas,” the document states. Put in simpler-to-understand terms, wealth must be commandeered and redistributed by central planners to level out society. Wealth redistribution at the international level is also called for repeatedly throughout the document, with the UN agenda making repeated reference to UN schemes by billionaires and dictators aimed at allowing the UN to acquire its own taxing power.

The UN document is filled with blabbering about “inequality,” promising to redistribute the wealth of what remains of the Western middle class to the UN and its oftentimes brutal Third World member regimes that have impoverished billions. The word “inclusive” appears dozens of times in the document without definition as well. What the document does not explain is that the mysterious term was concocted and pushed by the wealthiest crony capitalists on the planet — including the Rothschild banking dynasty — who have absolutely no intention of surrendering their billions and trillions in ill-gotten wealth. Instead, it is an amorphous term serving mostly as cover for government control, much like the Orwellian phrase “sustainable development.” More on that later.

Under the UN’s “New Urban Agenda,” every facet of human life even beyond economics will be under the purview of authorities. For example, the document directly calls for governments to ensure that everyone receives “education, food security and nutrition, health and well-being,” areas of human life that in the free world have traditionally been considered primarily the responsibility of individuals, families, and voluntary associations such as churches and charities — and occasionally local communities. Governments are even expected to provide “adequate and affordable housing,” the UN agenda states.

There are already a number of UN member regimes that purport to provide “housing” — Cuba and North Korea again come to mind. Free people, of course, can solve their own housing needs. Cattle, prisoners, and slaves, by contrast, rely on their masters to provide housing for them, along with food, healthcare, and more. Left unsaid in the UN document is the fact that free markets and the free enterprise system have already provided a massive surplus of housing and an abundance of housing choices. Centrally planned economies, by contrast, have produced nothing but grinding and often deadly shortages for everyone except the ruling classes and their minions.

The radical UN “Urban” vision also purports to commit UN member governments and dictatorships to adopting what is known as the “smart city approach.” The document describes it in a rather innocuous way, saying the scheme “makes use of opportunities from digitalization.” “We will strengthen the data and statistical capacities at national, sub-national, and local levels to effectively monitor progress achieved in the implementation of sustainable urban development policies and strategies,” the agenda says. The agreement also vows that governments will “support the role and enhanced capacity of national, sub-national, and local governments in data collection.”

What it does not say is that the “smart city” agenda and the massively expanded data-gathering the UN envisions involve total surveillance of every individual in a way that even George Orwell could never have imagined. Privacy, in short, will become a thing of the past.

Another component of the totalitarian vision involves “sustainable development.” Despite sounding rather harmless, even the definitions of the term given by top UN officials and government bureaucrats reveal the real agenda: less freedom, more government, less prosperity, more control, less people, more centralization of coercive power. The new UN agenda is a “critical step” in imposing the totalitarian “sustainable development” agenda “at global, regional, national, sub-national, and local levels,” the document says.

Everybody must submit. To make sure nobody escapes the emerging UN control grid, the declaration calls for ensuring that the “informal economy” — the economy that exists outside of government regulation, control, and direction — is subject to a “sustainable transition to the formal economy.” Indeed, one of the key “principles” upon which the UN plot is based is described as “leave no one behind,” also a theme of the equally draconian UN Agenda 2030.

Even culture will be guided by the supposedly wise and benevolent overlords who will be taking charge of all other aspects of life under the emerging UN plans for humanity. “We will include culture as a priority component of urban plans and strategies,” the document says. “We will support leveraging cultural heritage for sustainable urban development.” With UN control over education and even “values” of children, who are referred to as “key agents of change” in the New Urban Agenda document and other UN schemes, the future of human life will be easy for the would-be masters to engineer.

The nightmarish vision outlined in the UN document is completely alien to the American system of limited government and federalism. As just one example, the document purports to commit national governments and dictatorships to funneling “financial transfers from national government to sub-national and local governments.” That may work for totalitarian regimes, where local government works to implement the dictators’ decrees. But in places such as the United States, sovereign state governments and independent local governments accountable to their communities are supposed to raise their own resources, rather than become administrative units of a centralized regime with no limits to its power.

Another red flag is that the New Urban Agenda is “grounded in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.” Of course, the UN’s declaration of pseudo-human rights is incompatible with real human rights, granted by our Creator, as enshrined, for instance, in the U.S. Constitution’s Bill of Rights. The UN declaration even explains explicitly that the privileges governments and treaties purport to grant can be revoked under virtually any pretext. In Article 29, the declaration is clear that the UN’s bogus “human rights” may “in no case be exercised contrary to the purposes and principles of the United Nations.” By contrast, God-given rights cannot be legitimately infringed upon by government — period — whether it upsets the UN or not.

The UN outfit behind the latest “agenda” has a long and controversial history of advocating totalitarianism. As Karl Marx and other totalitarians have understood, private land ownership and private property more broadly must give way if collectivist slavery is to succeed. The very first plank of the 10 planks of the Communist Manifesto goes like this: “Abolition of private property in land and application of all rents of land to public purpose.” (Others include government education, progressive incomes taxes, government control of transportation and communication, and more.)

In its very first report on “Human Settlements” coming out of the 1976 UN Habitat I Conference, the dictator-dominated outfit made its agenda perfectly clear. “Land cannot be treated as an ordinary asset, controlled by individuals and subject to the pressures and inefficiencies of the market,” claimed the UN report, a predecessor of the latest agenda. “Private land ownership is also a principal instrument of accumulation and concentration of wealth and therefore contributes to social injustice; if unchecked, it may become a major obstacle in the planning and implementation of development schemes.”

As has become typical in recent years, the mass-murdering communist dictatorship enslaving mainland China is blazing a trail on the totalitarian “urban” agenda. The New American reported in 2013 that the brutal regime is plotting to herd hundreds of millions of rural peasants into centrally planned Orwellian super-cities in the years ahead — at gunpoint if necessary. Similar outrages are regularly promoted to Americans by establishment voices. Obama has only been too eager to join in. In fact, just this week, in violation of every principle upon which the United States was founded, Obama called for surrendering more U.S. sovereignty and “binding ourselves to international rules” crafted by unelected, unaccountable, oftentimes murderous foreign regimes.

Indeed, one illegal Obama program to “diversify” American cities, known as the Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing decree, is perfectly in line with the UN’s “New Urban Agenda.” The Obama program uses federal bribes to break up higher income and ethnically homogeneous communities by encouraging and subsidizing the redistribution of people based on race, income levels, and other factors. So, for example, if your suburb is too wealthy, the federal government might seek to put government housing there to drop welfare recipients into it. The UN document outlines exactly such schemes, vowing, for instance, to “encourage mixed-income development to promote social inclusion and cohesion.”

In fairness to the UN, the economic model promoted in the latest “agenda” is not quite socialist or communist, but rather a hybrid of government-directed fascism and technocratic governance often described as “technocracy” by critics who have studied it. In many ways, it is similar to the horrifying  “governance” (more accurately described as oppression) practiced today by the Chinese Communist Party — an outfit that has murdered more innocent people than any other group in human history, with conservative estimates starting around 60 million victims, not including those slaughtered in forced abortions.

Regardless of labels, though, the UN vision outlined in the “New Urban Agenda,” the Agenda 2030 Sustainable Development Goals, the UN Paris Agreement, and other grandiose plots is deeply totalitarian. It is not compatible with human liberty or dignity. It replaces the choices of individuals with the choices of tyrants. Much of it is flatly unconstitutional when it comes to the United States. For the sake of humanity and prosperity, the UN’s extremist agenda must be defeated. The surest way to do that is with an American exit, or Amexit, from the UN.

About me . . .

John-Henry Hill is a pseudonym I have used recently (since 2008) when submitting essays solely on THIS BLOG, which I refer to as my “Law Blog”, even though it contains a small number of essays on “topics of the day”, plus a “JOKES” page, a LINKS page and so on… So, WHO am I really?

John-Henry Hill, M.D. is a pen-name used by this author, who is, in point of fact, a former physician and medical researcher, having earned a doctor of medicine (M.D.) degree in the early-1970’s. Within a few years I decided to center my career around private-sector clinical-medical-health research, whose clients most often were numerous U.S. government medical-health agencies. By the mid-1980’s, as personal computers and primitive computer networks (“local area networks” or LANs) began to appear, out of necessity and efficiency in terms of my own projects, I studied and took formal courses in database theory and programming; and soon was programming databases, not only for my own research projects, but for other researchers as well. It was actually FUN, so that I changed careers again and a became full-time medical-health research programmer and LAN specialist for private-sector companies and later two federal agencies,

In 1998 some colleagues and I also formed our own privately-owned company, specializing in database programming for medical-health research for major medical centers, U.S. government medical-health agencies, pharmaceutical companies and similar entities both in the U.S. and Europe. (We did the same work type of work that we had been doing, except that we integrated by code several software products into one system.) For over 20 years prior to my early retirement in late 2009, I worked as a software database programmer and LAN specialist. In the early 1990’s I also earned a Ph.D. degree in American history, with a specialization in The Evolution of American Law-Political History from the Colonial Period Through the American Civil War.

There is SO MUCH MORE to learn – for all of us!!! I have just scratched the surface in my years of research and studying; and consequently in all of my essays on this Law Blog. I have been studying this stuff (mostly as a “U.S. history junkie”) for over 55 years; and learned a great deal more when researching for my Ph.D. However, I still do NOT consider myself an “expert” in law, medicine or medical database programming. To me NO ONE is an “expert”; there are simply people who know more about a topic than most other people. None of us can learn everything – not even about our work or profession, our hobbies, or anything else. Life is simply too short. And all people possess knowledge that they never write down, so it is lost to the living and future generations. It is a pity that until about 100 years ago, it was customary for all Americans to keep diaries and write a great deal about what they knew, read, had done that day and so on. Watching sports, radio, films, TV, personal computers, the internet and cells phone have killed off that custom of a daily diary. Those were the people who were the true historians of past generations – and from which most real professional historians (who perform their own original research, as opposed to simply quoting so-called “facts” from books published by other historians) always use such diaries as one of their primary sources of information. It was the ordinary people who wrote such diaries who were the true historians.

My ultimate decision to leave America forever was precipitated by a JOKE I told to a U.S. Customs and Immigration Service (CIS) officer at “Passport Control” at Boston’s Logan Airport upon arriving from Europe in December 2008.  The first two incidents were the most grueling and took place at Boston’s Logan Airport. What transpired and the means by which I sought remedy are described in one of my essays on this blog titled“DONUTS, THE U.S. CUSTOMS-IMMIGRATION SERVICE (CIS) AND COMMERCIAL LIENS” It is FUNNY and SAD at the same time. However these incidents were NOT the root cause for my decision to leave the U.S. forever. Instead these incidents were the proverbial “straw that broke the camel’s back”.

In 2009 I abandoned America forever as my home and have lived with my wife in Europe ever since, taking an early retirement, with homes in Ukraine, , Crimea (now part of the Russian Federation,  with by far the greatest amount of autonomy of any Republic in the Russian Federation, retaining its own independent, the sole Republic with right and power to postpone and in some instances render void within Crimea the application and enforcement of certain Russian Federation laws, while retaining ts own independent legislature and court system) and Switzerland. I have has NO intention of returning to America… ever!  I am a member of NO political party – neither the Democrat or Republican or Libertarian or whatever – since all political parties are simply competing factions within a Mafia-like system of oppression and wealth extraction.

As the old joke says, “How can you tell when a politician is lying?” Answer: ”His lips move.” Another relevant joke regarding the apathy of most Americans goes like this: One man asked another, “What do think about the ignorance and apathy of the average American?” To which the second man replied, “I don’t know and I don’t care!”

All of MY essays were thoroughly researched and written by me; and concern primarily the various types of law from America’s colonial period under British rule, the 3 types of law authorized by the U.S. Constitution (1) the Common Law,  which technically SUPERSEDES all other types of law, except when on waives some of his rights by CONTRACT. In the U.S, Britain and most of the former British colonies; (2) Equity Law (often called “Statutory Law”; and (3) Maritime-Admiralty Law which applied SOLELY to ships at sea; (and NOT even when a ship was anchored in a harbor or a dock), but which in the U.S. since the mid-1950’s has slowly been applied ON LAND primarily due to judge’s rulings at lower and mid-level courts within the U.S.  In addition there is the U.S. version of (4) the Uniform Commercial Code (U.C.C.) which in the late 1950’s began to gradually replaced Equity Law (“Statutory Law”) at the federal and state levels; and finally the oldest form of law called (5) International Commercial Law accepted by all nations engaged in commerce with any other nation and from which ALL 4 of the previously mentioned previous types of law (1-4) listed above wee derived. There are also essays on how the various types of law originated and evolved (or more accurately “devolved” or were “corrupted”) over time in the United States to the present day.

On rare occasions I will post an article or essay written by another man or woman, with extensive citations and documentation included within that essay on law; and whose background, credentials, text of the essay and documentation and citations therein I attempt to verify to the greatest extent possible. Usually such posts are written by people who are recognized experts on the subject of their essay/article.

First, the MOST important piece of information people should know is that, PRIOR the to the 14th Amendment of 1868, there was such NO such entity as a “U.S. CITIZEN”. Any person if asked about his citizenship would either say “American” (to foreigners) OR give the name of the state in which lived. This fact is accurately demonstrated in the film “GETTYSBURG” in which a Confederate general explains to a British officer/observer that “My country is Virginia”.

I am an American, born and raised in Massachusetts; NOT the “Commonwealth of Massachusetts” or the “State of Massachusetts” which for-profit corporations. And a man or woman living in a state of the Union (but NOT a “State”, which a “legal fiction” as a corporation created later) can be a citizen of his state, but NOT a citizen of the United States (or the converse), as the U.S. Supreme Court has ruled on numerous occasions. I do NOT and will NOT ever identify ever myself as a “citizen of the U.S.” (or any variation thereof). I identify myself as an “American”. The reason can be found in the first sentence of Section 1 of the 14th Amendment, which for the FIRST TIME ever defined a “citizen of the United States“All persons born or naturalized in the United States, AND subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are CITIZENS of the United States and of the State wherein they reside.”

First, a “person” is NOT a man or woman, but rather a legal fiction. Second, a “State” in the NOT the same entity as as state of the Union, but rather a sub-corporation of the United States Corporation (also created in 1868 in Edinburgh, Scotland). However, a careful reading of this first sentence shows that, in order to be ” a CITIZEN of the United States”, TWO conditions must be met. The first condition may seem fairly simple: being born or naturalized in the U.S. – until you read the various definitions (below) of the U.S. recognized by the U.S. Supreme Court. Were you born in Washington, D.C., Guam, the U.S. Virgin Islands? Or were you born in one of the various states? The second condition is that is that you must be “subject to the jurisdiction thereof [the United States]”. Unless BOTH these conditions are met, you are NOT a citizen of the United States. And since Washington, D.C., the Territories and insular possessions are under the EXCLUSIVE JURISDICTION of the Congress, the people living in those areas are NOT protected by the Constitution. Only the PEOPLE living in the various states are protected by the Constitution and its Bill of Rights – as the U.S. Supreme Court has ruled hundreds of times. So what do “citizens of the United States” receive in exchange for waiving their rights? The answer is found is the second sentence if Section 1 of the 14th Amendment: “No State [as opposed to a state] shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.” Consequently, by waiving ALL of their inherent, natural rights as guaranteed by the Constitution and its Bill of Rights, “citizens of the United States” fall under the exclusive jurisdiction of Congress, become subject to ALL of its acts (statutes; and the regulations that spring therefrom); and possess only PRIVILEGES granted by Congress, such as “due process” and “equal protection of the laws”. However, any PRIVILEGE granted by Congress can just as easily be taken away. Personally, I would rather possess my inherent, natural RIGHTS as guaranteed by the Bill of Rights than waive ALL those right to a Congress which then grant me PRIVILEGES as it sees fit, unrestrained by the Constitution and its Bill of Rights. Further, I am NOT bound by any acts (statutes) passed by Congress since Congress has NO jurisdiction over the PEOPLE of any state, UNLESS those people, as individual men and women, CONSENT to that particular statute OR enters into a CONTRACT with the United States which binds them to that statute. In short, to the PEOPLE in the various states [NOT States, which are sub-corporations of the United States Corporation] and acts (statutes) passed by Congress are merely “OFFERS TO CONTRACT”, which the people are free to accept [give their CONSENT] or reject.

The problems of the last 100 years in America is that the United States and especially its courts have made the PRESUMPTION in law, without presenting any evidence of a contract containing full disclosure and agreed to by mutual, voluntary consent, that We the People have living in the various states have AGREED to their jurisdiction. And several ancient Maxims of Law state, “He, who does not object, consents.”; “An oath is a contract in law.”; “An unrebutted affidavit stands as the truth in Law.”; “An affidavit must be rebutted point-for-point.” ; “They are perjured, who, preserving the words of an oath, deceive the ears of those who receive it.”; “While the battle continues, he who first leaves the field or refuses to contend loses by default.” (The man who quits first loses; the last-man-standing wins.)

Even the U.S. Supreme Court has acknowledged that there are a MINIMUM of three definitions of the term “United States” and, according to the District of Columbia Incorporation Act of 1871 and subsequent amending acts, the “United States” means either solely Washington, D.C. OR Washington, D.C., U.S. Territories, insular possessions and areas within the various states permanently ceded by that state’s legislature to the U.S. (such as for the erection of forts, etc.). Thus, the various states are NOT part of the “United States”,  but are in fact the creators and “bosses” of the United States”

The root  cause of increasing dissatisfaction with the U.S. government over the last 30 plus years is the result of years of study and simple observation over my lifetime.  The evolution of certain types of law, along with the devolution and essentially the practical elimination of other types of law from our justice system and our society of was once most commonly used type of law in America: the COMMON LAW.

After the ratification of the original (“organic”) “The Constitution for the united States of America”, written in plain English for all to understand, the courts, Congress and people accepted as FACTS OF LAW that the people as individuals were the sovereigns of the Union states, the various states were viewed as separate “foreign countries with respect to each other and with respect the United States”; and most almost all legislated acts (statutes; from which regulations were written) applied ONLY to employees and agents of the U.S. government. The Congress had jurisdiction only over Washington City, as the seat of the federal government, federal Territories, federal forts and and naval stations within a state; and federal buildings within a state, usually federal Post offices. Federal statutes applied to people living in one of the sovereign states ONLY if that individual man CONSENTED to that particular statute. The federal courts existed solely to settle disputes between states; and disputes between people from two different states

..at the Revolution, the sovereignty devolved on the people; and they are truly the sovereigns of the country, but they are sovereigns without subjectswith none to govern but themselves….. [CHISHOLM v. GEORGIA (US) 2 Dall 419, 454, 1 L Ed 440, 455 @DALL (1793) pp471-472.]

“There is no such thing as a power of inherent sovereignty in the government of the United States …. In this country sovereignty resides in the people, and Congress can exercise no power which they have not, by their Constitution entrusted to it: All else is withheld.”Julliard v. Greenman, 110 U.S. 421..

The people of this State, as the successors of its former sovereign, are entitled to all the rights which formerly belonged to the King by his prerogative. [Lansing v. Smith, 4 Wend. 9 (N.Y.) (1829), 21 Am.Dec. 89 10C Const. Law Sec. 298; 18 C Em.Dom. Sec. 3, 228; 37 C Nav.Wat. Sec. 219; Nuls Sec. 167; 48 C Wharves Sec. 3, 7.]

Even Alexander Hamilton (1st Secretary of the Treasury under President George Washington) and one of the most ardent advocates for a strong  central government wrote,Necessity and expediency are NOT legitimate excuses for violating the Constitution you swore to uphold and protect – even during a ‘crisis’“.

“It will be admitted on all hands that with the exception of the powers granted to the states and the federal government, through the Constitutions, the people of the several states are unconditionally sovereign within their respective states. ~ Ohio L. Ins. & T. Co. v. Debolt, 16 How. 416, 14 L.Ed. 997 (1854);

Our government is founded upon compact [contract]. Sovereignty was, and is, in the peopleGlass v. Sloop Betsey, U.S. Supreme Court, 1794.

This last quote reflects the fact as understood by the Founders and the American people at that time that the Constitution was a type of CONTRACT as a legal TRUST (called “The Constitution for the united States of America” among the various independent and sovereign states. This contract was written by and for the people. The American people were the creators of this Trust. The Grantors (or Trustors) were the states; the Trustee was the new federal government called the “United States of America”; and the Beneficiaries were “we, the people and our posterity [descendants]”. The President was the essentially the chief executive or CEO of the trust, the Congress its “board of directors” and the Supreme Court the arbiter for the trust to prevent the employees (federal official officials and employee) from exceeding the powers granted to it by the Trust AND to settle disputes among the Grantors (states). As in any contract in the form of a Trust, the powers and obligations of the Trustee must be explicitly states; and the Trustee may NOT grant itself any new powers. Only the Grantors can alter the Trust contract, and in our system this can be done ONLY by Amendments to the original Trust contract, in this case by the ratification any proposed amendments by a minimum of three-fourths of the Trustors or Grantors (states). All legislated acts (statutes) passed by Congress were essentially “rules” for the agents and employees of the Trustee (the federal government), as well as the residents of what became “Washington, the District of Columbia” (i.e., Washington, D.C.), the Northwest Territories and later territories, federal employees working within the various states (e.g. Post Office employees”), and federal installations on land ceded by state legislatures to the federal government (such as for forts, naval yards). And if a fort or other federal installation was abandoned or went unused by the federal government, that land reverted back to the jurisdiction of the state in which it was located, UNLESS the state legislature ceded permanent ownership and jurisdiction of that piece of land to the federal government. For everyone else living in the various states, all U.S. statutes passed by Congress are merely “OFFERS TO CONTRACT”. As with any contract, if you agree to it, then you must obey the specifications of that contract. But if any state or individual person with any state does NOT agree to it (he or she rejects it; does not sign it), then there is NO such contract applicable to that man or woman. The PROBLEM since the 1860’s is that the U.S. government and the courts ALL make the PRESUMPTION that every man and woman HAS AGREED to every statute (Offer to Contract) and therefore those statutes apply to everyone within America (without the required “full disclosure” necessary for any contract). We have unknowingly agreed by contract to be under the JURISDICTION of the U.S. government). Further, such statutes NEVER become True Law. Instead, like ANY other contract, by our contractual agreement these statutes assume the FORCE OF LAW”.

And as I wrote above: Several ancient Maxims of Law (which are accepted by the courts as absolute truth and need not be proved again in any court) state, He, who does not object, consents.”; “An oath is a contract in law.”; “An unrebutted affidavit stands as the truth in Law.”; “An affidavit must be rebutted point-for-point.” ; “They are perjured, who, preserving the words of an oath, deceive the ears of those who receive it.”(sounds a lot like politicians); as former Soviet Premier Nikita Krushchev wrote, “All politicians are alike; they want to build a bridge where there is no river.”); “While the battle continues, he who first leaves the field or refuses to contend loses by default.” (“The man who quits first loses; the last-man-standing wins.”)

The Constitution was a CONTRACT as a TRUST (COMPACT;) among various sovereign states that ratified it in the form of a Trust called the “organic Constitution” or “The Constitution for the united States of America” – as opposed to a revised version (called the “corporate Constitution”) for the “United States Corporation”  (created in 1868) called the “The Constitution of the United States of America”. And as the Supreme Court has ruled numerous times regarding the organic Constitution, that: (a) the states, NOT the people, were the parties to this contract which created the federal government; (b) it was NOT a contract between the states and the people; (c) it was NOT a contract between the states and the federal government, which was impossible because the federal government  did NOT even exist until AFTER the Constitution was ratified;  and (d) it was NOT a contract between the people and the federal government for same same reason as item c.  It is impossible to create a contract with a man or entity that does NOT yet exist!

In short, legislated acts (statutes) passed by Congress and approved by the President (the CEO  of the Trust) did NOT apply to ordinary men and women living in the various states OR to the various sovereign states. And the ONLY way that this could happen was if that man or woman individually consented, or state through its legislature, And ALL contracts, in order to be valid require full disclosure of the terms, “consideration” (an exchange of things of equal value as determined by both parties, with rights and privileges-benefits exchangeable considered items of value), the mutual CONSENT or agreement of both parties – called a “meeting of the minds” of that particular contract. Therefore, all legislated act (statutes) passed by Congress were applicable and enforceable by the courts ONLY federal employees and agents and to the areas of land noted above under Congress’s exclusive jurisdiction; NOT to ordinary men and women living in the various states. For these people within the various states (as non-employees and non-agents of the federal government) “federal statutes were simply “OFFERS TO CONTRACT’” which each individual one could could accept (consent) or reject.

The most widely used TYPE OF LAW in the Union of these sovereign states until the 1930’s was the unwritten COMMON LAW as adopted from British Law (based on local customs and rules of the local society over the eras), which was simple for all people to understand: In essence, the Common Law can be summed up as, “Only if a man violated another man’s rights or caused injury to that man’s property, was a crime committed.” And the “property” was then defined as all of a man’s possessions, his money, his home, land and even his own physical body.” The shortened version can be stated as, “No injury means no crime committed.”

And the most commonly used COURTS were courts operating under the Common Law within a state (called COURTS OF RECORD).  COURT OF RECORD is defined in Black’s Law Dictionary, 4th Edition (Revised), 1968 as:

  1. A judicial tribunal having attributes and exercising functions independently of the person of the magistrate [judge] designated generally to hold it [Jones v. Jones, 188 Mo.App. 220, 175 S.W. 227, 229; Ex parte Gladhill, 8 Metc. Mass., 171, per Shaw, C.J. See, also, Ledwith v. Rosalsky, 244 N.Y. 406, 155 N.E. 688, 689][Black’s Law Dictionary, 4th Ed., 425, 426] My note: a Tribunal in a true Court of Record is ether the plaintiff or, if requested by the accused/respondent, a jury of 12 local people (the accused or respondent’s “peers”) Only the tribunal (the jury) can issue orders, rule of issues of law and procedure and render verdicts. Indeed, there are numerous Supreme Court ruling which explicitly state that it is “the duty and obligation of the jury to be the sole judge of the both the FACTS and LAW of the case; disregarding all instructions of the judge to the contrary”.  In fact, the administrator (usually a judge) on a Court of Record – a court operating under solely under the Common Law (see item B  below) can issue NO orders, rulings, verdicts, etc. is role is simply as the organizer of the proceeding, whose role to to keep it moving in an orderly and civil manner. An should a judge issue ANY order, ruling verdict, or whatever, he can be found in “contempt of court” by the tribunal (the jury) and even fined or imprisoned
  2. Proceeding according to the course of common law [Jones v. Jones, 188 Mo.App. 220, 175 S.W. 227, 229; Ex parte Gladhill, 8 Metc. Mass., 171, per Shaw, C.J. See, also, Ledwith v. Rosalsky, 244 N.Y. 406, 155 N.E. 688, 689][Black’s Law Dictionary, 4th Ed., 425, 426] (My note: Such a court EXCLUDES legislated acts (statutes) and even attorneys. Both the accused and the accusor must “PRESENT” himself in court as a private individual man or woman; and can NOT be “RE-PRESENTED” to the court by an attorney, which converts that man into legal fictions called a “person” and a “client”. And in any major law dictionary “client” is defined as either a child; or an adult person mentally incapable of defending himself, thereby making that client a “ward of the court”. In other words, by hiring an attorney, you voluntarily declare that mentally incompetent to defend yourself and make yourself a ward of court, which ma then do to you what it wishes for “your benefit”. And even being sentenced to prison is, under law, considered a “benefit”. Prior to the 1930’s the accused often used unlicensed LAWYER, whose role was an “advisor” and “spokesman” for the accused, but all affidavits, claims, etc. had to be issued by sworn affidavits written and signed by the accused – a lawyer could NOT do these things for the accused. Today, a man can sign a contract with an attorney called a “Power of Attorney” in which that attorney can write and sign an agreement or contract with others, as specified with that “Power of Attorney” agreement WITHOUT any further approval or even notification the the client required, even over non-judicial matters such as selling one’s home, conducting his business transactions and investments and just about an other matter.
  3. Its acts and judicial proceedings are enrolled, or recorded, for a perpetual memory and testimony. [3 Bl. Comm. 24; 3 Steph. Comm. 383; The Thomas Fletcher, C.C.Ga., 24 F. 481; Ex parte Thistleton, 52 Cal 225; Erwin v. U.S., D.C.Ga., 37 F. 488, 2 L.R.A. 229; Heininger v. Davis, 96 Ohio St. 205, 117 N.E. 229, 231] (My note: a court TRANSCRIPT is NOT a “an enrolled or recorded written document of the acts and proceeding of a court to be held in perpetuity. Instead a transcript, under law, is merely the notes written and kept by the Court Clerk, which need NOT be preserved after all appeals are exhausted.
  4. D. Has power to fine or imprison for contempt. [3 Bl. Comm. 24; 3 Steph. Comm. 383; The Thomas Fletcher, C.C.Ga., 24 F. 481; Ex parte Thistleton, 52 Cal 225; Erwin v. U.S., D.C.Ga., 37 F. 488, 2 L.R.A. 229; Heininger v. Davis, 96 Ohio St. 205, 117 N.E. 229, 231.][Black’s Law Dictionary, 4th Ed., 425, 426]    (My note: It is the Tribunal – the jury – which has the power to fine or imprison someone for contempt of court; NOT the administrator or judge.)
  5. E. Generally possesses a seal. [3 Bl. Comm. 24; 3 Steph. Comm. 383; The Thomas Fletcher, C.C.Ga., 24 F. 481; Ex parte Thistleton, 52 Cal 225; Erwin v. U.S., D.C.Ga., 37 F. 488, 2 L.R.A. 229; Heininger v. Davis, 96 Ohio St. 205, 117 N.E. 229, 231.][Black’s Law Dictionary, 4th Ed., 425, 426]  (My note: this last item, a SEAL, has been and is still now considered optional. In the far past, some jurors were often illiterate and could not write their signatures on the verdict and rulings issued by the jury. Instead, such jurors would “make their mark” (often a simple “X”) on such documents, witnessed by the other jurors, who then used a SEAL as a sworn attestation that the juror’s “mark” on the document was truly that of a juror, as a substitute a that juror’s signature. In many respects it is similar to the SEAL used my “notary publics” in the U.S. by which any written, signed and dated document by a man or woman is converted into a type of “affidavit of truth” after that individual swears “oath” (itself a contract in law) in the presence of two witnesses and the notary public (all of whom must write their signatures on that date of notarization. Only then does the “notary public apply his SEAL to that document over his on signature. The “notary public” and the two other witnesses, under law, become a Tribunal (“Tri” meaning three; derived from the Latin word “Tribune”: “An officer of ancient Rome elected by the plebeians to protect their rights from arbitrary acts of the patrician magistrates,” In legal disputes in ancient Rome, initially three (3) tribunes could over-turn and void the rulings of patrician magistrates, although that number was later increased to  was later

The relationship between the PEOPLE and the FEDERAL GOVERNMENT has been turned upside down by the Congress and affirmed by the courts over the 20, most especially the U.S. Supreme Court. And ever since the events of “9/11”  September 11, 2001).

From the time American Revolution and later the ratification of the US Constitution until the 1938 Erie Railroad v. Tompkins decision by the U.S. Supreme Court, the Common Law was the primary law in America. This Supreme Court decision reversed hundreds by years of American legal precedent by ruling that federal courts court no longer use a state’s Common Law as the basis of their decisions. Today, virtually no courts in America will recognize the Common Law and will toss you into jail for “contempt of court” should you assert your rights under the Common Law. But as much as the Congress and courts (at all levels) have tried to eliminate the Common Law from the minds of the People – and they have nearly done so in terms of what people know about the Common Law, and even what attorneys and lower court judges know – which is next to nothing, if the people educate themselves, they can reclaim their rights and once again make government the SERVANT of the people; not their master. And even as recently as 1973 the U.S. Supreme Court agreed:

 “The judgment of a court of record [a court operating under the Common Law only; NO statutes allowed] whose jurisdiction is final, is as conclusive on all the world as the judgment of this court [the U.S. Supreme Court] would be. It is as conclusive on this court [the U.S. Supreme Court] as it is on other courts. It puts an end to inquiry concerning the fact, by deciding it.” U.S. Supreme Court decision in Ex parte Watkins, 3 Pet., at 202-203. [cited by SCHNECKLOTH v. BUSTAMONTE, 412 U.S. 218, 255 (1973)]

Definitions of aCOURT OF RECORD” and a “COURT NOT OF RECORD“:

A “COURT OF RECORD” is a judicial tribunal having attributes and exercising functions independently of the person of the magistrate designated generally to hold it, and proceeding according to the course of common law, its acts and proceedings being enrolled for a perpetual memorial.; Jones v. Jones, 188 Mo.App. 220, 175 S.W. 227, 229; Ex parte Gladhill, 8 Metc., Mass., 171, per Shaw, C. J. See, also, Ledwith v. Rosalsky, 244 N.Y. 406, 155 N.E. 688, 689.    Black’s Law Dictionary, 4th Edition (revised), 1968

A “COURT NOT OF RECORD”: Courts not of record are those of inferior dignity, which have no power to fine or imprison, and in which the proceedings are not enrolled or recorded. 3 Bl. Comm. 24; 3 Steph. Comm. 383; The Thomas Fletcher, C.C.Ga., 24 F. 481; Ex parte Thistleton, 52 Cal. 225; Erwin v. U. S., D.C.Ga., 37 F. 488, 2 L.R.A. 229; Heininger v. Davis, 96 Ohio St. 205, 117 N.E. 229, 231.(Note: A court TRANSCRIPT is a collection of notes of a hearing or trial which are the property of the Court Clerk’s Office as notes written a TRANSCRIPT is NOT an enrollment in perpetual memorial of the acts and proceedings of a court trial or hearing.)  Black’s Law Dictionary, 4th Edition (revised), 1968

In summary:

COURT OF RECORD. To be a court of record a court must have four characteristics, and may have a fifth. They are:

  1. A judicial tribunal having attributes and exercising functions independently of the person of the magistrate designated generally to hold it [Jones v. Jones, 188 Mo.App. 220, 175 S.W. 227, 229; Ex parte Gladhill, 8 Metc. Mass., 171, per Shaw, C.J. See, also, Ledwith v. Rosalsky, 244 N.Y. 406, 155 N.E. 688, 689][Black’s Law Dictionary, 4th Ed., 425, 426] (In other words, a judge acts solely as a magistrate and can issue NO ruling, orders, verdicts fines, etc. It is NOT the judge’s court; it is the Plaintiff’s court – and one becomes the Plaintiff by issuing a COUNTER-CLAIM against the judge as a private man in which you challenge his jurisdiction. Only the Plaintiff or a jury of 12 people can act as the Tribunal in a true Court-of-Record. And if the judge, against whom you filed the counter-claim, attempts to issue any ruling, order, decision or whatever, you MUST OBJECT immediately, even if he issues a ruling FAVORABLE to you. Why? Because if you do NOT object, you have just handed him back jurisdiction over you. You or the jury can issue a “writ of error”, voiding his attempt to issue a ruling, then request that the jury issue a similar ruling favorable to you. But NEVER let any ruling or decision issued by a judge in a Court-of-Record (a Common Law court) go unchallenged. If you do, you have just given him jurisdiction over you, which was the basis of your counter-claim over him._

    2. Proceeding according to the course of Common Law [Jones v. Jones, 188 Mo.App. 220, 175 S.W. 227, 229; Ex parte Gladhill, 8 Metc. Mass., 171, per Shaw, C.J. See, also, Ledwith v. Rosalsky, 244 N.Y. 406, 155 N.E. 688, 689][Black’s Law Dictionary, 4th Ed., 425, 426]3. Its acts and judicial proceedings are enrolled, or recorded, for a perpetual memory and testimony. [3 Bl. Comm. 24; 3 Steph. Comm. 383; The Thomas Fletcher, C.C.Ga., 24 F. 481; Ex parte Thistleton, 52 Cal 225; Erwin v. U.S., D.C.Ga., 37 F. 488, 2 L.R.A. 229; Heininger v. Davis, 96 Ohio St. 205, 117 N.E. 229, 231]

[NOTE: A “TRANSCRIPT” is NOT an “enrollment”; a “transcript” is merely the personal record of the Clerk of the Court, whose notes are referred to as “minutes”.]

  1. Has power to fine or imprison for contempt. [3 Bl. Comm. 24; 3 Steph. Comm. 383; The Thomas Fletcher, C.C.Ga., 24 F. 481; Ex parte Thistleton, 52 Cal 225; Erwin v. U.S., D.C.Ga., 37 F. 488, 2 L.R.A. 229; Heininger v. Davis, 96 Ohio St. 205, 117 N.E. 229, 231.][Black’s Law Dictionary, 4th Ed., 425, 426]

    5. Generally possesses a seal. [3 Bl. Comm. 24; 3 Steph. Comm. 383; The Thomas Fletcher, C.C.Ga., 24 F. 481; Ex parte Thistleton, 52 Cal 225; Erwin v. U.S., D.C.Ga., 37 F. 488, 2 L.R.A. 229; Heininger v. Davis, 96 Ohio St. 205, 117 N.E. 229, 231.][Black’s Law Dictionary, 4th Ed., 425, 426]

One of my hobbies (more like a “passion”) since I was a medical student in Washington, D.C. in the early-1970’s has been U.S. Civil Battlefields – specifically battlefield tactics as they evolve during a battle –  especially at sites in in Virginia and Maryland within easy driving distance of my home, in Virginia. The battles in which I specialized were: Lee’s Maryland Campaign of 1862, resulting in the Battle of South Mountain (actually at 3 nearby locations a few miles west of Frederick, Maryland) and three days later the Battle of Antietam Creek at Sharpsburg, Maryland. The other much smaller battle, but of much greater political significance took place on the banks of the Potomac River just outside Leesburg, Virginia. While truly just a skirmish, it was called the Battle of Ball’s Bluff” – President Lincoln’s longtime and closest friend and the very popular U.S. Senator Edward Baker had resigned from the Senate to join the Union Army as a colonel. Despite his lack of any military knowledge or experience, he led this minor reconnaissance expedition (for political reasons), but foolishly chose to set up a line of battle at the edge of the bluff (rather than establishing his lines further inland). Confederate troops were initially NOT there, but Baker waited around until there were plenty! Colonel Edward Baker was killed soon after and his men fled down the bluff to the river. Most who made it to the river drowned, due their heavy packs – since the Confederates has earlier sunk all the Union boats (left unguarded) in which the Union troops originally had used to cross the river. The battle’s outcome changed the conduct of the rest of the Civil War, one example of which was the creation of the “Congressional Committee on the Conduct of the War”. (An open field when I first started studying it, Ball’s Bluff is now over-run by a massive housing development, so that the original battlefield no longer exists. Mr. Ball, who owned the farm on which the “battle” –really a small skirmish – was fought, was a direct descendant of George Washington.)

Battle of Antietam Creek in Sharpsburg, Maryland, September 17, 1862

(Three days earlier was the “Battle of South Mountain” at 3 locations where there are 3 gaps 10 miles west of Frederick, Maryland: Fox’s Gap (extremely steep; leads to Boonsboro, Maryland west of the mountain which is 10 miles from Sharpsburg), Turner’s Gap (steep; just to the south; also leads to near to Boonsboro, Maryland west of the mountain which is 10 miles from Sharpsburg ) and Crampton’s Gap (furthest south and almost flat; leads to Harpers Ferry)

The VERY BEST and most detailed 2 books written on the “Battle of South Mountain” and the “Battle of Antietam Creek” are both by JOHN MICHAEL PRIEST, who happens to live in Boonsboro, Maryland – just west of South Mountain and about 10 miles north of Sharpburg and Antietam Creek. Their titles are:

1.) Before Antietam: The Battle for South Mountain

2.) Antietam: The Soldiers’ Battle

In these books, the authors writes and shows (via hand-drawn maps) where various units were on an hour-by-hour basis – and relied ONLY on ORIGINAL SOURCES. Priest used NOTHING from other, more recent books or articles was used. Only articles, diaries, letters and books written immediately after the battle by the battle’s actual participants – many of which were published in a popular magazine in the 1860’s called “Century Magazine” – were used by Priest. (These articles, written by actual participants (from privates to generals) in various battles for Century Magazine on the Civil War were later published in the 1890’s as a 3-volume set of books, now out-of-print for many years, that took me and friends many years to find all 3 volumes.) Of note: Priest’s books and the 3-volume set of 3 books of Century Magazine articles are INVALUABLE. However, these books are NOT for “beginners” – you should already know a lot about the Maryland Campaign of 1862 and the battles at South Mountain and Antietam Creek in order to appreciate their enormous value, especially if you visit the South Mountain and Antietam battlefields as I did literally hundreds of times, since they were only a 1-hour drive my home in Fairfax County, Virginia during medical school, post-graduate residency and later my medical practice. Even after I changed careers and moved to Massachusetts in the 1990’s, I still visited these battlefields at least twice a year until 2010 when I left the U.S. forever.

Most of the other recently written books on Antietam have major errors, contain the author’s speculations, rely on other recently published works for sources, seldom (if ever) use any original sources, and reach conclusions that are based on hind-sight and are often nonsense. That is why Priest’s books and the 3-volume book set (based on the Century Magazine articles) are so incredibly valuable!

But BAD THINGS happen to us all:

My ENTIRE LIBRARY, which I had contracted to have shipped to Odessa, was “lost” (i.e,, “never picked up”, “misplaced” or STOLEN). Among the thousands of books, journals, articles, etc. were: all my MEDICAL books and journals, PROGRAMMING books and journals, HISTORY books and journals (from Colonial America through the U.S. Civil War), vast collection of U.S. CIVIL WAR books, maps and journals, NOVELS, and assorted other books.

Before I moved to Odessa, Ukraine I had contracted with a company to have sent in a steel container by ship my entire library (over 1000 books on medicine, research methods, statistics, programming, novels, and over 400 books – some out-of print for 100 years, very difficult to find with some old copies found by sheer chance in small bookshops – on the U.S. Civil War, along with many maps, etc. I also had photocopies of diaries and letters form the descendants of locals still living near Sharpsburg; and photocopies of diaries and letters of surviving participants of the Battle of Antietam that were kept by their descendants – the latter items collected over a 40-year period. I also had literally thousands of photographs I had personally taken over the years, as well as copies of photographs retained by the descendants of the battles. The only other goods I shipped to Ukraine were clothes and sporting goods. (Firearms are NOT allowed entry into Ukraine, so I gave them to my brother to store them). However, ALL that I received at my Odessa apartment were about 3/4 of my clothes – presumably the rest “disappeared” into some “black hole” somewhere. And from what I could learn, the books composing my library were never even picked up  by the contracting company. Luckily, I had my two laptops in my baggage on my final plane trip out of the U.S. I sued both the U.S. shipping company (I won) and Port of Odessa (I lost; case dismissed –that is the Ukrainian “justice system), but those items lost were irreplaceableonly the books (some extremely rare) and photocopied materials collected over many years mattered; the money did not.

(Of note, I gave away free as gifts to friends and neighbors my fairly new, flat-screen TV, all my furniture and anything and everything else they wanted in the house and tool shed. I had my attorney donate my car – a fairly new V-6 VW Passat with manual transmission, sunroof, etc.) to charity – NOT because I am a “great guy”, but because Ukraine charges such a HUGE fee on cars imported by INDIVIDUALS into Ukraine; and the donation was tax-deductible. But NOT my books – I was going to keep ALL of them!!!) Therefore, below are maps, etc taken from various web sites. They are a very poor substitute for my collection of maps, some detailing the movements of every company and brigade (with the time and duration of each engagement) for both the Battle of South Mountain and the Battle of Antietam.
