A Brief Report For Those Trying to Understand the New World


To the Student: By James Perry Harvey aka Olddog@morrisbb.net

For whatever reason Judge Ann Von Reitz decided to publish her articles in a PDF format here http://www.annavonreitz.com/which makes it difficult to alter her writing; then fortunately Mr. Paul Stramer at http://www.paulstramer.net/ who had been studying Anna’s work decided to RE-publish her work in MS Word Format making it much easier for his readers to republish and pass on the information to those less sophisticated in computer operation. We all owe these two people much more than can be explained for helping us understand this complex fraud. The reader would do well, regardless of intellect to devote as much of their time to understanding what happened to the people of America and other countries behind their backs as this has been the biggest breach of trust since the beginning of time. Understanding all this is the most important of every human-beings responsibility, if they want to live the free life we all were led to believe we inherited. I have been reading articles about our system of governance for the last twelve years in an effort to make sense of what I was taught in school and the obvious exact opposite of what I witnessed in real life. I make no claims of being smarter than anyone else and in fact have only a G.E.D. as my highest level of education. However, one does not have to be super intelligent to be disgusted with tyrannical politicians and their laws. I offer up this free copy of the above article with the hope of waking up a Nation of people, over burdened with personal responsibilities and loss of hope. American’s may die tired, broke and hungry, but they do not have to live in ignorance and support a system designed to enslave them. Excessive patriotism is an excuse to remain ignorant. We need hundreds of millions of Americans to become educated on the REAL HISTORY OF AMERICA.

Basic Concepts and Discussion

  1. The natural world is organized according to air, land, and sea.
  2. The systems of law and the governments and institutions of men have also been organized according to “jurisdictions” of air, land, and sea.
  3. The jurisdiction of the land is national in nature.
  4. The jurisdiction of the sea is international in nature.
  5. The jurisdiction of the air is global in nature.
  6. All actual assets, gold, silver, land, etc., have their existence on or in the land.
  7. All fictional assets, titles, stocks, bonds, etc. have their existence on or in the sea.
  8. There is a point of interface between land and sea known as international land jurisdiction established by the postal district(s), postal offices, and post roads which interface with sea lanes designated for international trade and travel.
  9. As a result, a “corporate” entity which is private and non-commercial and unincorporated, like a Mom and Pop business, for example, Steve’s Food Store, may interface with and do business with an “incorporated” entity established by a corporate charter, like Food Services of America, Inc.
  10. This sort of business relationship takes place in the realm of International Trade, not Commerce, because Steve’s Food Store is not incorporated.
  11. In order for commerce to occur both entities must be incorporated and functioning under a charter granted by an unincorporated (sovereign) entity.
  12. Unincorporated businesses function under “full commercial liability” and have to “indemnify” themselves.
  13. Incorporated businesses function under “limited commercial liability” and have to “insure” themselves.
  14. As a result, an unincorporated government such as the Shawnee Tribal Council or the United States of America (Unincorporated) can charter an incorporated business, such as Grand Fox, Inc., or the State of Illinois, Inc., but no incorporated entity can create an unincorporated one.
  15. This is because a man can create and name an organization and stipulate a purpose and function for that organization, but such an organization cannot create a man.
  16. In the past, unincorporated governments have created and chartered governmental services corporations in an effort to manage risk. So, the United States of America (unincorporated) or Delaware (unincorporated) could create and charter a commercial incorporated entity called the USA, Inc., or Delaware, Inc. or State of Oregon.
  17. Those incorporated (chartered) entities, such as the State of Oregon were then free to establish relationships with other incorporated entities (that is, conduct commerce) and to spin off municipal franchises like the STATE OF OREGON.
  18. Now that you see how this process works and know that the unincorporated entity (corporate but not incorporated) is really the source of all power in this system, the following pages will make better sense. Examples:

Steve’s Food Store (Unincorporated) can create “Betty’s Market, Inc.” and then Betty’s Market, Inc. can create “municipal franchises” for itself — BETTY’S MARKET NYC, INC.

The United States of America (unincorporated) can create “State of Idaho, Inc.” and then this State of Idaho can create the franchise STATE OF IDAHO or CITY OF BOISE.

Obviously, it is of great importance to know whether a business is incorporated or unincorporated, and if it is incorporated, under what charter and ownership?

Unfortunate History

In the 1860’s the unincorporated government organizations got greedy and not only spawned all the various incorporated governmental services corporations via the process described, but also contrived to make living men subservient to these artificial constructs by “impersonating” and “enfranchising” them, too.

This was done by copyright infringement and Breach of Trust, with the aim of creating “public trusts” which could then be pillaged and plundered under color of law.

Let’s see what happened in England: the unincorporated government operated by Queen Victoria already had an incorporated (chartered) government services corporation, the United Kingdom, so then the United Kingdom, Inc., spun off a franchise operated as the UNITED KINGDOM which then established municipal charters for its own franchises, SCOTLAND, IRELAND, ENGLAND, WALES, NEW CASTLE, EXETER, and so on.

This was going so well and so much new money was being raised from all these new assets (things to tax) created out of thin air, that Benjamin Disraeli promoted opening up the “enfranchisement opportunity” to the working class in England: give them a vote as corporate shareholders in exchange for seizing upon the copyright to their names, their rights, their labor, the value of whatever private assets they might have— basically make them slaves of the government under the guise of voluntary indentured servitude, and issue bonds based on the value of all that formerly private property, too.

Millions of unsuspecting Englishmen clamored to be “enfranchised” and thought that the right to vote was a good thing and that it was giving them a greater voice in their government, instead of surreptitiously stealing everything of value from them and “monetizing” it for the benefit of the government.

A similar process was undertaken in America and throughout the Commonwealth countries at about the same time, with one interesting twist. The unincorporated government of the United States of America wouldn’t go along with it, so their governmental services company known as the United States Trading Company, was bankrupted via an illegal commercial mercenary “war” and its associated expenses.

This left the bankruptcy Trustees a free hand to restructure the “federal government” into a British-style system analogous to what we described above. The perpetrators replaced the unincorporated United States Trading Company with the British-chartered United States of America, Inc., and the municipal United States, Inc., and both these corporations began chartering all their various municipal franchises like rabbits in springtime.

Just as in England, the men were almost immediately enfranchised with the enticement to have a vote in the affairs of the corporations— but, the real deal was never disclosed. Later as the profits from enfranchising all the men dwindled, the pressure was on to enfranchise the women, too, and finally, the perpetrators sank so low as to create an automated system of enfranchising babies in their cradles.

The end result of this system of enfranchisement (as in a McDonald’s franchise) is to enslave people under color of law and make them subservient to foreign corporations. They are themselves then impersonated and press-ganged and conscripted into the service of foreign governments, which has been outlawed for 200 years, and their land and other assets are seized upon and rolled into public trusts which can then be plundered and pillaged at will by the perpetrators.

For example, the natural given Trade Name of a man born on the land jurisdiction of Vermont might be Jonathan Edmund Sykes. Instead of his Common Law Copyright to his own name being recorded as a land jurisdiction Trade Name, it is nowadays registered as a Foreign Situs Trust operating in the international jurisdiction of the sea as a “vessel” of the Territorial United States, which just coincidentally, happens to be doing business as “Jonathan Edmund Sykes”.

This is a fundamental mis-characterization of the nature and political status of the man as a “person”— a fictional entity— which results in genocide on paper and identity theft in fact. His natural identity as a man and his lawful Trade Name is literally killed and considered a “decedent” upon the issuance of a false Birth Certificate in his name.

Then, the Territorial United States corporation spins off “JONATHAN EDMUND SYKES”, a Cestui Que Vie municipal trust, and “JONATHAN E. SYKES” a Public Transmitting Utility, and so on — and all these names and fictional entities are used to put into debt and control the living man as an asset and chattel without his knowledge or consent.

The victim and his family are never told anything about it, and he never receives any actual compensation for all this. He receives whatever benefit everyone else receives from the construction of roads and bridges and ports and so on, and also is expected to pay for that benefit via taxes. The trusts established in his name are never claimed by him, because he doesn’t know that they exist, so the banks and governments claim that these assets are “abandoned” and seize them under false pretenses for their own benefit.

Because the unincorporated government of the United States of America never agreed to any of this, and because it eventually had to be released from bankruptcy, it continues to exist, and is now not only free and clear of any debt, but also by definition is the Paramount Security Interest Holder and Priority Creditor of all the bankrupt foreign corporations and franchises of those corporations which have usurped upon our states and our people for the past 150 years.

The Current Bankruptcies

The UNITED STATES, INC. and all its municipal franchises dba CHINA (INC.), JAPAN (INC.), INDIA (INC.) , STATE OF OREGON (INC.), JOHN MICHAEL SMITH (INC.), CITY OF OMAHA (INC.), UNITED KINGDOM (INC.), FLORIDA (INC.), CANADA (INC.), AUSTRALIA (INC.)…..ad infinitum, is in Chapter 7 Liquidation since 2015.

This then forced the Territorial United States and its corporate franchises [dba China (Inc.), Japan (Inc.), State of Oregon (Inc.), John Michael Smith (Inc.), City of Omaha (Inc.), United Kingdom (Inc.), Florida (Inc.), Canada(Inc.), Australia (Inc.)….ad infinitum], is in Chapter 11 Reorganization as of May 1, 2017—-because they are no longer the beneficiaries of the municipal franchises.

Meantime, the actual, factual United States of America (Unincorporated) has been slogging along since 1868, objecting to this madness and continuing to operate its own silver currency and its own affairs despite the shameful and criminal operations of these foreign corporate interests which have operated in fraud and breach of trust and breach of commercial contract on our shores.

Some people like Karen Hudes have said that our lawful government is in “interregnum” – a state of abeyance, dormant, not functioning– but that is not true. Our lawful government has never ceased operations and the ignorance and uncaring and self-interest of various other nations does not change that fact.

Other people, like Benjamin Fulford, continue to try to confuse both the “United States, Inc.” and “United States of America, Inc.” with the unincorporated government of the United States of America—- which is like confusing a Barbie doll with a woman of the same name.

Still others are intent on pretending that because these foreign territorial and municipal corporations named after us are bankrupt, that we are bankrupt— a process of “assumption” that we have publicly and repeatedly objected to in no uncertain terms. Not only are we not bankrupt, we are the Paramount Security Interest Holders and Priority Creditors.

The reason that all the other nations on Earth have an interest in denying our existence and competence is that they all without exception owe us money, or resources, or settlement of exchange balance sheets—- most of which they can’t pay.

So they have been attempting to claim that our assets are “abandoned” and various parties have tried to seize upon us and our assets via other avenues, too—- all to no avail. We are here, we are alive and well, we know who and what we are, we know what has been done to us, and we know who is responsible.

In 2008…..

There were only a handful of unincorporated lawful governments left in the world: the Holy See, Iran, Iraq, Libya, North Korea, a few Pacific Island Kingdoms, and….. the unincorporated United States of America, though everyone discounted us at the time.

With these exceptions, the Holy See owned and operated through its property management corporation, the VATICAN, all the incorporated governments doing business as governmental services corporations in the world.

The unincorporated government of the Holy See chartered the municipal (city-state) governments and franchises including the UNITED STATES, INC., which chartered all the others as franchises: JAPAN, GERMANY, UNITED KINGDOM….. USA, JOHN MARK OLSON, CITY OF BALTIMORE and so on.

It also held all the Territorial government corporations, secondarily, through Vassals.

All roads literally led to Rome. All these corporations were created literally by the Holy See via the VATICAN, INC. or via the UNITED STATES, INC. or via the United States of America, Inc., and at the very top of the food chain, perched like a cherry on top of everything else, controlling – at least in theory – everything underneath it, was the unincorporated government of the Holy See.

As you can see from history, there are those who wish to have the Holy See in this kind of control, and as you can also see, the Holy See has failed to do the job entrusted to it. We had a solemn and sacred treaty with the Holy See, a Concordat, which a few weasels attempted to “redefine” by impersonating us. To its credit, the Holy See and the Pope immediately took action to correct beginning in 2008.

Nine years later, the unincorporated government of the United States of America — our government — is still standing and is the unquestioned Paramount Security Interest Holder of all American assets, and the Priority Creditor of most of the bankrupt governmental services corporations worldwide.

The Situation

The corporations serving as the “federal government” are in bankruptcy liquidation (municipal) or bankruptcy reorganization (territorial) and are in receivership to bankruptcy Trustees. From our perspective, this is like having your local hair salon forced out of business and your local gas station in reorganization.

It has nothing direct to do with us, except that we needed to find other service providers competent to cut our hair and fill our tanks—- and hopefully do a more honest job of it—who are nonetheless able to operate under the auspices of the original service contract, The Constitution for the united States of America.

If we hadn’t found competent federal partners that exist under their own separate pre-existing charters and treaties, the actual Constitution would have been vacated from the federal side of the agreement— but we did find competent partners and we did issue new Sovereign Letters Patent.

We have partnered with the American Native Nations to fulfill the responsibilities owed by the federal government until such time as the millions of Americans who have slept through this entire debacle can be brought up to speed and made whole and enabled to convene a competent land jurisdiction (continental) Congress.

The Debt

There is no unmet national debt— there is only national credit that has not been applied to the ledger by those seeking to abscond with the payments made by millions of innocent people via bogus claims of abandonment and embezzlement. We have authorized the application of the national credit to the national debt and, as the Priority Creditors of (almost) the entire world, do not need nor do we seek bankruptcy protection.

The Foreclosures

There are no valid foreclosures because these transactions have been voided by fraud and non-disclosure. All “mortgages” resulting from so-called “home loans” are debts owed by the territorial and municipal corporations, not people, and are in fact lease repurchase agreements, neither mortgages nor loans in fact. These governmental services corporations “borrowed” our assets without our knowledge or consent, hypothecated debt based on our assets, and have now gone bankrupt— leaving the world to suppose that we agreed to all this and that we are avoiding payment, when in fact we are objecting to claims of Odious Debt and taking practical action to end this fiasco. To protect the pension funds and investors while holding the people harmless, we have developed a means to hold all foreclosures in abeyance and translate this odious debt into credit— for the actual homeowners.

Securities — The Funny Money

The various fiat currencies and bonds and securities related to them have to be restructured. It is a given that securities will continue to exist and be used in some forms in the future, but it is also a given that the securities now in existence have been compromised by counterfeiting and other issues. We will be wrapping up old US Treasury Bonds and creating new hybrid high security bonds backed by gold, oil, or other actual commodity assets.

The Final Word

The Earth and our labor and the derivatives of our labor — copyrights, trademarks, patents, and so on – are the only sources of value on this planet and there is no exhaustion or limit of the riches and assets we all possess. This is true for all people of every nation.

Banking for Bankers + The Problem and the Solution + The Turning of the Seasons and the Tides


Banking for Bankers


By Anna Von Reitz

More than a year ago, I declared the beginning of the long-promised Thousand Years of Peace.  I delivered the Payment Bond and the Bills of Lading to the Vatican Chancery Court.  A Year and a Day later, on January 7, 2018, the Final Transaction Cured and, not coincidentally, the Age of Aquarius officially began. As a further result, the Draconian Law was set aside and the Aquarian Law of Love and Balance was declared.

Now, to some of you, this sounds very foreign and “airy-fairy” and you must be wondering— “What’s wrong with Grandma?  Has she gone soft in the head? Fallen for all this New Age garbage?”

But it is nothing of the sort and nothing soft-headed about it.  It is material fact. And it’s a good thing for everyone on planet Earth.

All these years everyone has been thinking that the Kingdom of Heaven was something immaterial, something we couldn’t see or touch or feel directly. We have been “seeing through a glass and darkly”, but now, that glory is to be revealed and many things that made no sense will suddenly make perfect sense to everyone.

Right now, I want to just briefly observe some consequences to the bankers of the world, who have profited themselves by keeping everyone (falsely) indebted.

All that debt and all those “debt notes” that the banks have been holding over everyone’s head are in fact negative numbers.

A negative number is by definition less than zero.  And the bigger the negative number, the less than zero it is.

A minus seventy-seven trillion ($77,000,000.000.00) is a LOT less than zero.  That’s how much that debt is really worth.

The only way that such a debt can be converted into credit, is if it is forgiven.

And the only way it can be forgiven, is for the living people and unincorporated governments of the world who are actually owed the debt, to forgive it.

Otherwise, what such a debt represents (besides being worth less than zero) is guilt.  Because the only way that such a debt could be accumulated is by crime.

Let me explain a bit more about that.

Since 1946, we have all been living in a debt-credit system of money and finance.  All transactions taking place in such a system are zero sum or an accumulation of debt. No credit is possible, because of the use of debt notes as currency.

Think about it.  If I give you $5 and you give me a hamburger in exchange, the “value” of one thing has been converted into the “value” of the other. There is no net change.  At least in our minds and in terms of our agreements, the value of the $5 and the value of the hamburger are equal. This is a “zero sum” exchange.

The only other possibility is the receipt of something of more value than we give credit for or to put it another way, the receipt of something of actual value in exchange for something of little or no equitable value.

And that is a crime.

So all those bankers who think that they are so rich because they have placed so much debt on everyone else through the use of debt notes as currency— think again.  A negative number is still a negative number.   And the guilt of whomever is holding such debt notes against others is apparent.

As anti-intuitive as it is for most people on Earth, the only way to convert debt to credit is via forgiveness.  The credit of those who have been cheated has to be brought forward to cover the debts of the guilty, plus reinstate the credit balance of the world.

Those who have been cheated are owed by the guilty parties’ own admission the return of all their property free and clear of debt, plus an amount equal to three times the losses they have endured. Thus, upon our forgiveness of the world debt, the debt goes away, everyone’s property is returned free and clear, and an amount of credit equal to three times the total amount of the old debt becomes available for relief, restitution, reclamation, and reinvestment.

So, bankers, do you want to be trillions of dollars in debt and facing criminal charges, or do you want to forgive all those trillions in debt so that you can in turn be forgiven and receive an equal amount of credit?

That takes one complete zero sum exchange on the ledger.

And leaves three times the credit — free of usury — to rebuild the world. The living people and their sovereign governments are the ones who are owed and the ones who can forgive all these debts and convert them to credits. And this is why it is written to forgive so that you, too, can be forgiven.

The Kingdom of Heaven’s credit and resources are limitless, infinite.  There is no material you can name, that cannot be provided in staggering amounts.  So it now makes sense that such credit is “asset backed” and that we are no longer subject to the Doctrine of Scarcity and the False Values we have been taught.

The rest is up to you.  You can sit there like spiders clinging to debts that are worth –by definition– a great deal less than zero, or you can forgive those debts, zero out your ledgers, and receive asset-backed credits instead.

I am here, The Fiduciary sent to settle these issues and convert the debt system to a credit system. My mission will be accomplished no matter what anyone says or does about it.  You might as well step back, think about it ten minutes, and start feeling both free and happy again.

The Problem and the Solution


By Anna Von Reitz

Today, each baby is born into debt slavery.   This debt is attached to him via undisclosed commercial contracts which convert the living child into a human chattel asset backing the debts of governments.

This system is set up so that the debts accrued can never equal the debts repaid.

That is, even if you pay all that you owe, there will still be interest to be paid on this debt when you die.

This debt will be passed on to the next generation.

This creates a perpetual Debt Ponzi Scheme.

Instead of money, each new participant contributes a share of debt to the pyramid.

With each new generation this odious debt increases and more and more of the world’s wealth is controlled by fewer and fewer people.

These controllers are middlemen.

This is because on the opposite side of the ledger in such a system, the debtors are also the creditors; if it were not for the middlemen, the bankers and fund managers standing in the way, this would be apparent to everyone and we could all have a good laugh.

The Problem turns out to be ignorance and dishonest bookkeeping.

When we use actual commodities as money instead of debt, the debt pyramid is eroded, but other problems rear their heads.

The use of a standard commodity, such as gold or silver, as money, creates a system of idolatry.

No matter how much of the commodity we amass, there is never enough.

Such a system is prone to manipulation by producers and hoarders of the standard commodity.

Inevitably, the producers and warehouse managers (bankers) of the standard commodity gain an unfair advantage over everyone else.

This results in an inelastic, unreal, dishonest system of trade that limits and burdens the many and encourages gluttony by a few.

Conclusion: there is no lasting relief in either the Debt Ponzi Scheme nor in the use of any Standard Commodity as money.

Both systems have been tried and both systems have failed and both systems are prone to manipulation, dishonesty, and limitations that cripple us.

We need a new answer.

We need an honest, incorruptible way to trade with each other that includes and empowers everyone.

The Solution

Without going into a lot of technical detail, we have a simple, seamless, utterly secure, utterly private means of replacing both the current Internet and the current banking systems.

Our system is generations ahead and can’t be hacked.

This provides a means for people to connect safely and privately on a global basis.

It also provides the unobstructed ability to trade, to record transactions, to record property interests, to declare our individual form of law and political status, and to establish unique identification passwords and addresses.

This gives us all the means to trade but not the “what” to trade.

We propose a truly global currency based on the value of all goods, all commodities, and all labor resources currently traded worldwide.

This creates a “Super Commodity Standard” that actually does reflect the value of all goods and services being traded worldwide.

Everyone has value to trade by virtue of their country’s natural resources and their own ability to work, and everyone is a producer when trading in our Super Commodity Currency.

There is no benefit from hoarding or otherwise manipulating such a currency, and no practical limit to its value, which increases when we reinvest in care-taking the Earth and its people, instead of increasing when we destroy each other and pollute the planet.

Both these initiatives are non-violent, non-coercive, and not aimed at harming anyone.

We simply introduce them as new options and let nature take its course.

As soon as people realize all the benefits of having a secure private identity and private banking and internet capability, they will naturally want access to our new banking and internet system.

The common sense benefits of having investments in Super Commodity Currency means they will exchange some of their national currency for global currency and begin trading in it.

Especially resource rich and labor rich countries will benefit from using Super Commodity Currency— meaning that those with the most need will reap the most benefit and freedom from this new system.

Over time the reinvestment in the Earth and in the people will increase the value of the Super Commodity Currency, and people will gradually let go of their old national currencies.

The impulse to compete will no longer be channeled to trade wars and contests like “China versus Japan”– and will be addressed toward maximizing and increasing the health and value of each worker and each plot of land, instead.

This system pays for itself, is self-generating, and has no known limitation or drawback technically or morally. It is de-centralized, self-policing, self-correcting, and can endure indefinitely.

It is competent right now to replace both the Debt Ponzi Scheme and the Standard Commodity Scheme with an honest and beneficial system of private international trade.

 The Turning of the Seasons and the Tides


By Anna Von Reitz

Word is beginning to dribble in from all around the country of court victories and banks giving up and releasing foreclosure claims against Americans. There is still a great deal to be settled, and still some great injustices being perpetrated, but the tides are turning in favor of the “little people” — and I am not talking about Leprechauns— who have taken my advice to heart:

  1. Mandatory FSIA Notice;
  2. Acknowledgement, Acceptance and Re-Conveyance of Deed (which includes claim to your Trade Name and all derivative NAMES and declaration of their permanent domicile on the land and soil of (California, Wisconsin, et alia);
  3. Act of Expatriation making it clear and explicit that you foreswear any Territorial United States or Municipal United States citizenship;

4.Common Law Certificate of Assumed Name

I do not want to be inundated with questions about recovery of homes and farms and businesses that have already been taken illegally and unlawfully just yet, because I don’t know the answers at this point. The bankers and politicians have created an immense backlog of injustice and loss and not all of it can be simply “returned”. There isn’t enough Title Insurance in the world to compensate everyone who has been harmed.

That said, there will be answers and there will be remediation. Just expect that it will take time to work out the details, and realize that The Living Law Firm is working as hard as it possibly can as fast as it possibly can.

We are very much under the gun to do mammoth amounts of work in a short time, understaffed, unfunded, and dependent upon all of you to weigh in and help steer the ship and keep bailing.

As Go the Pulpits, So Goes the Nation


 Complimentary Story By Rob Pue

Another school shooting.  Another call from the so-called “progressives’ for gun control, OR the outright confiscation of guns from law-abiding citizens.  “Remove the guns,” they say, “to keep our children safe!”

Another lie from the lying left.  If the truth be told, the liberal, humanist, socialist “progressives” couldn’t care less about children.  They have an agenda — to disarm Americans in order to institute their UN-sanctioned “one-world government,” and a “new world order.”  In other words, tyranny.  Tyrants in control, enslaving the people.  Game over.

Many will say I am putting forth a conspiracy theory.  But many are ignorant of the wicked devices of our enemy, and many are ignorant of what is REALLY, truly going on in this world.  They’d rather follow and believe the “fake news” of the mainstream media than delve deeper into the real truth of this evil agenda.  And yes, there IS an evil agenda.

Look at our public schools.  No longer do we teach “civics” classes in public schools, because the powers-that-be must make sure our kids remain ignorant of our history and our rule of law.  Kids have no idea about our Constitution or Bill of Rights, the Revolutionary War, our fight for Independence.  That “Greatest Generation” that fought World War 2 to free the world from tyrants is quickly fading into history, no longer able to tell their stories.  And our public schools do not tell their stories anymore either.  In fact, if any American History is taught in public schools AT ALL anymore, it has been “twisted,” “spun,” and “revised,” to make AMERICA the Great Evil of the world.

We send our kids to the public schools — or should I say the “Government Indoctrination Centers” — and after 12 years, they hold the exact opposite views on cultural, social and moral issues that we hold.  And after four more years in government universities, we no longer even recognize our kids at all.  What is wrong with us?  Do we not have eyes to see what is happening right before us?  Tell me we’re smarter than that.

It’s been said that public university professors have two main goals for incoming freshmen:  1). get the kids to reject their Christian faith — if they have any faith left at all.  And 2).  get the kids to question their sexuality, their gender, and encourage them to “experiment.”  No longer is there any such thing as “absolute truth.”  Now, it is “moral relativism.”  “What’s right for you may not be right for me, and that’s ok,” they say — UNLESS of course, “what’s right for ME” happens to be traditional family values, faith in God and a love for the country called “America” that USED to be.  Then, of course, you are a “hateful, racist bigot” and your opinion counts for nothing.  You MUST BE SILENCED!

So now we’re in the midst of yet ANOTHER push for the removal of guns from the hands of Americans.  Every day, I am seeing more and more signs in public places stating these are “Gun Free Zones.”  No guns permitted.  How’s that working for us?  All the mass shootings that have taken place in recent years have happened in “Gun Free Zones.”  Apparently, those bent on wreaking havoc and taking lives don’t read the signs.  These “Gun Free Zones” are nothing more than shooting galleries for the mentally disturbed, the disgruntled, the demonically-possessed.  When you pass laws to ban guns, I assure you, the only ones with the guns will be the tyrannical government, the police and the criminals.  GUNS ARE NOT THE PROBLEM, folks!

Let’s just look for a minute at our public schools.  I graduated from high school in 1983, 35 years ago.  I can tell you, even at my small RURAL school, even way back then; it was a cesspool of immorality.  Bullying was rampant, beyond belief.  Filthy, vulgar, foul language and blasphemy filled the hallways, the lunch room and even the classrooms.  That was 35-40 years ago.  I cannot even IMAGINE what it must be like today.  Because at that time, things like pornography were “hush hush,” even though it existed.  Homosexuality was shameful.  People did not celebrate it with PRIDE — much less jump on the bandwagon at the urging of their teachers and try it out for themselves to see if it might be “right for them.”  In grade school, we still stood and recited the Pledge of Allegiance every morning.  We didn’t indoctrinate and twist young minds into joining “ANTIFA.”  How FAR we have fallen!  Our CHILDREN, my friends, are in GRAVE DANGER in our country today.  Not JUST from rogue shooters — but especially from those we TRUST — the school boards, the teachers, and those pulling the strings behind the scenes.

Today we have “drag queens” leading story time for pre-school-age children in public schools and libraries, and the parents not only ACCEPT this, they EMBRACE it, all in the name of “diversity.”  Today our kids readily accept the idea that abortion is simply a “woman’s right to choose,” and that Planned Parenthood is really all about “women’s healthcare!”  Give me a break!  Today, our kids not only have to deal with all the things WE had to deal with in school… they ALSO have the added burden now of deciding for themselves whether they are male or female  —  any input on this matter from parents is STRICTLY prohibited, as we have seen in recent news stories.  We have lost our collective minds, reaping what we have sowed.

In 1962 the US Supreme Court banned prayer in public schools.  A year later, it banned the reading of the Bible in public schools.  Where were the Christian parents? Why were they not OUTRAGED enough to stand up and fight — for morality, for righteousness, for their children and their Savior?  Christians did nothing.  Imagine if the day after prayer was banned in public schools if every DAD went to every public school principal and in righteous anger declared that this will NOT STAND!  We may have had a chance.  But Christians did nothing.

And so today, we scratch our heads and wonder what can be done about all the killings in the public schools.  God was tossed out on His ear a generation ago;  so  now we only seek Him after another bunch of our kids are shot down in cold blood.  THEN we gather and hold “prayer vigils,” holding candles while we weep.  But many don’t even know what prayer IS.  They stand and hold a candle, but there’s no repentance, no real understanding of what we are so guilty of as a nation.  We are SO very lost.

America is suffering under what the Bible calls “Blood guiltiness.”  In another infamous case where the US Supreme Court was unlawfully allowed to “make a law,” it declared, in 1973 that women were now legally able to have their own children murdered.  And the blood of the innocent little babies, knit together by God Himself in their mothers’ wombs cries out from the ground to Almighty God.  We are guilty of shedding innocent blood.  Ezekiel 22, “You have become guilty by the blood that you have shed, and defiled by the idols that you have made, and you have brought your days near, the appointed time of your years has come.  Therefore, I have made you a reproach to the nations, and a mockery to all the countries.”  These are the words of the Lord.

Need some more?  Pslam 106, “They poured out innocent blood, the blood of their sons and daughters, whom they sacrificed to the idols of Canaan, and the land was polluted with blood.”  Lamentations 4, “How the precious children of Zion, once worth their weight in gold, are now considered as pots of clay, the work of a potter’s hands.”  In other words, common, disposable… garbage.  THESE ARE OUR CHILDREN, people!  THESE ARE OUR BABIES!  Their blood cries out from the ground, as did the blood of Abel, to Almighty God.  And as we have so cavalierly shed the blood of 60 MILLION innocent babies in this nation in the last generation, though we cannot see it, because it is kept behind closed doors, out of sight, a “taboo” subject we are never allowed to discuss, their blood is running like rivers in our streets, and so why are we surprised when we are reaping so much violence and bloodshed elsewhere?  Frankly, I’m surprised we aren’t seeing more.  Frankly, I’m surprised the Lord has not yet poured out His full wrath on this nation and destroyed it as He did Sodom.

Yes, I am ANGRY!  I am ANGRY that you can go to just about ANY Christian church in America today — and you can go there for the next 40 years, and you will NEVER hear any pastor touch these subjects with a ten-foot pole, for fear of offending some in the pews, for fear of talking “politics” from the pulpit.  For fear of being “distasteful.”  For fear of the weekly “take” falling short in the collection plate.   It’s SICK!  And YES, I am angry.  “As go the pulpits, so goes the nation.”  Our Pastors, who refuse to teach, who refuse to preach the WHOLE counsel of God, straining at a gnat while swallowing a camel, neglecting entirely the weightier matters of the law, while instead talking about “how to have a sexy marriage,” “how to be wise stewards,” “why we need to ‘tithe’ in order to be good Christians,” “God’s love for all mankind, how we’re ALL God’s children….”  The list could go on, but I … …just can’t.

Guns are not our problem, folks.  Our problem is the fact that we, as a nation, have rejected God.  You may not realize this if you live in a Christian “bubble” like many do.  But you would be AMAZED at how many people in America today know absolutely NOTHING about God, about His Word, about Holiness and righteousness, and about their need for repentance and the Savior.  Even regular church-goers have been so woefully and poorly taught, they cannot explain the truth of the Gospel, and they CERTAINLY would never have the courage to share it if they ever took the opportunity.  Christianity has become a “spectator sport,” where we are never asked to do ANYTHING, always encouraged to stay away from those “wackos” who fight the murder of innocent babies, who speak out against sodomy and the reprobate minds that have become so warped by the enemy’s deceptions that they cannot even say for sure whether they are male or female.  “Stay away from people like that,” our pastors tell us.  “They are radicals.  They are nuts.  They do not represent what our church believes.”  Indeed.  They do not.

The Bible tells us in Ephesians 5 that we are to have nothing to do with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather, EXPOSE them.  We also read that it is shameful even to mention what the disobedient do in secret — and yet today we have Christian churches not only endorsing baby killing, sodomy and the demonically-twisted lie of “transgenderism,” we even have churches PARTICIPATING in these evils… approving of abortion, FUNDING and PRAYING FOR Planned Parenthood, ordaining sodomite preachers!

Go to Romans 1:  “Although they KNEW God’s righteous decree that those who do such things deserve death, they not only continue to do these very things, but also approve of those who practice them.”  Go to ANY sodomite “pride” parade and you will find literally DOZENS of so-called “Christian” churches PARTICIPATING in the parade with their own vulgar parade floats; while, meanwhile, a mere handful true Christ-followers will be on the sidelines trying their best to minister God’s Word and tell the Truth amidst hundreds of thousands of lost souls, so filled with hatred of God, they would kill every Christian if they could…  and our PASTORS tell their people to stay away from the truth-tellers, the bold, courageous Christians willing to put their lives on the line for the Gospel.

Well, the risen Christ had a different message than these hirelings.  He said the RIGHTEOUS will triumph over the evil one.  How?  “…by the blood of the Lamb, the word of their testimony, and loving NOT their own lives, even unto death.”  Radical?  Yes.  Acceptable in our churches today?  No.  You’d be a wierdo. You’d be a radical.  You would not be welcome.  Pastors would encourage others to stay away from you.  And they do.

As go the pulpits, so goes the nation.  The blood that flows from our public schools is the same blood that flows in our streets — innocent blood of our children, the judgment of God on a nation that has rejected Him — a nation whose every thought seems to be only evil, all the time, only honoring Him with their lips when it becomes convenient, …or necessary to calm the guilty conscience.  Until we repent and turn — corporately —  as a nation, back to our Creator, I don’t believe He listens to our superficial prayers, offered up in vain.  We can stand and hold candles and gather and mourn together EVERY TIME violence erupts in our land, but until we turn BACK to God, He will not take part in any of our sorrowful assemblies.

We are lost.  We are sheep without shepherds, led by cowardly hirelings.  I’m sorry to be so blunt.  I do not wish to impugn ALL pastors.  Certainly there ARE some bold, courageous ones out there, and I know some personally.  But the VAST majority in America today are hirelings.  Jesus was even more emphatic than what I have said here, using words like “Snakes,” “Brood of Vipers,” “Whitewashed tombs.”  And He told those religious leaders they were “of their father, the devil.”

It’s time for some COURAGEOUS CHRISTIANITY in America today.  We have to decide if we’re serious about this, or if we are just going to let the evil one have his way with us while our children and grandchildren die, with twisted minds, broken hearts and lost souls.  If YOU ARE READY to get serious about these issues and if you’re ready to meet like-minded people, I encourage you to join us, March 9th and 10th at the 2018 Wisconsin Christian News Ministry Expo and Conference in Marshfield, Wisconsin.  All these issues and more will be discussed by some of the most notable leaders in the Christian world from around the nation.  You will be educated, informed and equipped to have an IMPACT for Jesus in this lost, sad, sick world.  If you don’t already know about this EXTREMELY VITAL Conference, I encourage you to call me for all the details.  No matter where you live, anywhere in America, if you are serious about your faith, you NEED to be at this Conference.  And you need to bring your children and grandchildren with you as well!  I guarantee it will be life-changing.  And if you actually ACT on what you learn there, God may yet have mercy on us all.  Please don’t miss this opportunity.  We may never get another one.


Fundamentals 3 Your Flags


By Anna Von Reitz

Every country on Earth has both a martial flag, otherwise known as a “war flag” and a civil flag known as a “peace flag”.

They also have a military — armed forces in charge of the war flag, and a civilian service –civilian government employees in charge of the peace flag.

In this country, “Old Glory”, the “Stars and Stripes” is the war flag.  And the United States Civil Flag, the one with vertical stripes, is what it says it is— the peacetime flag of the civil service.

In America, we are served by principle branches of military service: Army, Navy, Air Force, and US Marine Corps, plus other forces, like the National Guard, all of which fly the war flag, the Stars and Stripes, for obvious reasons.

We are also supposed to have a federal civil service and that service is supposed to be flying the United States Civil Flag, a distinctively different version of our flag with vertical stripes—–but isn’t.  Why not?

The United States Civil Flag should be flying over post offices, customs houses, departmental office buildings like the United States Department of Labor, etc., and agencies like the FBI, FAA, BLM, and so on.

Instead, all of these federal entities, whether martial or civil, are flying the Stars and Stripes — the war flag — and have done so as far back as anyone can remember.

There isn’t an American now living who can remember when the Post Offices flew the United States Civil Flag.  It disappeared in the confusion and aftermath of the Civil War, in the so-called “Reconstruction Era” which, it turns out, should have more aptly been called the “Obstruction Era”.

We have very early tin-type photographs from newspapers and drawings and lithographs from before the Civil War showing the United States Civil Flag flying over post offices and courts and other civil office buildings —all with vertical stripes; there are notable letters and official documents and period publications confirming these facts, and we even have photographs documenting the use of the United States Civil Flag at polling places and other public events after the Civil War ended.

The most accessible and easiest proof of the existence and use of the United States Civil Flag is at the very beginning of Nathaniel Hawthorne’s classic novel, The Scarlet Letter, where he describes the United States Civil Flag in detail, flying over a federal custom’s house.  The Scarlet Letter was published in 1850, a few years before the illegal mercenary conflict we have been taught to call The American Civil War.

Our National Government– the federal government we are supposed to have running the delegated federal services— has been secretively mothballed by the foreign British Territorial United States Government ever since the end of the Civil War.  They have usurped upon the American National Government in Breach of Trust and Commercial Contract and substituted themselves as the primary federal service providers, having unlawfully converted the original States of State into Territorial States of States, and otherwise “re-constructed” things to suit their best interests, howbeit, without the knowledge or consent of the American states and people.

Our national level flags — both of them — have their origins during the Revolutionary War.  The Stars and Stripes was (and is) the banner of the Federation of States doing business under The Unanimous Declaration of Independence as The United States of America (Unincorporated) (1776)

The so-called “rebellious flag” with vertical stripes was adopted as the banner of the Confederation of States doing business under The Articles of Confederation as the States of America (1781).

Thus from the infancy of the government of this country, there were two Unions of “States” — a Federation and a Confederation.

The Federation operated under the auspices of The United States of America (Unincorporated) includes the international land jurisdiction States known as Maine, Florida, Wisconsin, Texas, California, et alia.

The Confederation operated under the auspices of the States of America (Unincorporated) included the original State of Maine, State of Florida, State of Wisconsin, State of Texas, State of California, et alia.

The United States of America (Unincorporated) and its States occupy the land jurisdiction of this country and retains the undelegated powers of the combined states in the international jurisdiction of the sea per Amendment X.

The States of America (Unincorporated) and its States of State, such as the original State of Georgia, occupied the international jurisdiction of the sea and exercised the delegated powers vouchsafed to the National Level Federal Government.

The British-backed Territorial United States had a limited Trustee role to play on “the High Seas and Navigable Inland Waterways” and in providing security for the District of Colombia, Puerto Rico, Guam and other “Insular States” but was never intended to serve in any National Level government capacity for us and has no consent to do so.

What should have happened after the so-called American Civil War, which was in reality an illegal mercenary cat-fight among federal government service providers and would-be government service providers, is that the States of America (Unincorporated) should have been allowed to hold new elections and seat new delegates in the National Congress, and life should have gone on peaceably and normally in this country.

Instead, shysters serving “as” the members of Congress during the armed hostilities, decided to make a buck after the fighting stopped. Acting in sheer treason they pretended that the National Level Federal Government owed to the actual states and people of this country was “in abeyance” and they substituted Territorial States of States for the original National States of States, deceptively calling one by the same name as the other.

That is, they substituted a British Territorial State of Florida for the National State of Florida we are owed.  They operated the (Territorial) United States Congress to do this, and rolled all the assets of the original National State of Florida into land trusts which they named Florida State, Wisconsin State, and so forth—-which they also controlled.

On the surface, so far as average Americans could see, everything stayed the same.  There was a State of Florida before the war and a State of Florida after the war.  In fact, a profound fraud and change had taken place.  The original National State of Florida was under the direct control of the actual Florida Legislature, which was in turn elected by the living people.  The Territorial State of Florida was operated as a corporate franchise, dba “State of Florida, Inc.” operated by the British Crown and controlled by British subject shareholders.

In this way, by fraud, deceit, and Breach of Trust, the British contrived to control what appeared to be our National Government and to get their filthy fingers into our pockets and steal our resources, to control our commercial dealings, our trade policies, and our war-making decisions via the substitution of their own (Territorial) United States Government operating as our National United States Government— all the while excusing this to the rest of the world and pretending that our government was “in abeyance”.

It was the Biggest Con Job in human history and they have played it to the hilt.

Bear in mind that all this was accomplished by owning and controlling a relative few Americans who were elected to serve in something calling itself the “United States Congress”.  The perpetrators just neglected to tell us which “United States” this Congress was supposed to be serving — the actual National-Level United States Congress?  The Territorial United States Congress?  The Municipal United States Congress?

Most of this evil was accomplished by such simple omissions and obfuscations and by “deceptively similar names deceits”—and it is all purposeful fraud undertaken in self-interest from 1860 onward.

The (Territorial) United States Congress embarked on a series of copyright infringements and more Breaches of Trust by naming its principal corporate franchise after our legitimate and still-standing unincorporated government. In 1868, they created “The United States of America, Incorporated” which they bankrupted in 1907.  They also created “the United States of America, Incorporated” which they bankrupted in 1933.

They used this similar names deceit to give Americans and the rest of the world the false assumption that we were bankrupt, when in fact, it was only their own territorial and municipal corporations being deliberately bankrupted as a means to promote our assumption of their debts.

The British Crown and the Bank of England and their Buddies have carried on with all of this fraud and duplicity and criminality and have promoted all this treasonous activity in Breach of Trust and violation of their Treaties and Commercial Contracts right under our noses.  They would like for us to interpret this situation as a political issue, but in fact, it is a matter of international crime — theirs.

The Territorial United States can fly the Stars and Stripes in wartime.  They can’t fly the National Level United States Civil Flag, which is the property of the States of America— our mothballed and purportedly  “in abeyance” National-level Government.

Since 1999, they haven’t even been able to fly the official version Title IV Stars and Stripes they adopted.

In that year, the bankruptcy of the “United States of America, Incorporated” which began in 1933, ended.  As part of the settlement, the Territorial United States Government had to abandon the District of Columbia and decamp, leaving behind all the buildings and the flag and other public property rightfully belonging to The United States of America (Unincorporated), the American States and the American People, who were then and who are now their Priority Creditors.

Commander Russell-J:Gould stepped into the gap, rescued the Title IV Stars and Stripes, reopened the Post Offices we are owed, and established the continuance of the evidence of our actual government’s existence–that is, the National-Level unincorporated government and our unincorporated Territorial Government, as well.

The perpetrators of these fraud schemes could not fly the actual Title IV Stars and Stripes during the corporate bankruptcies they engineered as a means of picking us clean, so they flew decorative versions with gold fringe and caps on the flagstaffs as “National Colors” instead.  They hung the Stars and Stripes vertically in the Congressional Chambers as a pretense of civil authority and substitute for the United States Civil Flag. The perpendicular hanging of the Stars and Stripes also “strikes” that version and gives Notice of their international bankruptcy.

Here’s the cheerful news.  The United States of America (Unincorporated) owns it all, absolutely, all across the board.  The unincorporated government is the sovereign government.  All the rest of this is just international crime by foreign governments and foreign corporations– Breach of Trust, Fraud, Unlawful Conversion, False Claims in Commerce, etc., etc., etc.  None of it has any validity and none of it is our fault.

As important as the States of America organization was as our National Level Government exercising our Delegated Powers and as outrageous as it is that our then-elected public servants and international Trustees allowed and committed these frauds against us and our lawful government, we are still in control and the flags are still ours. Both of them.

During the Obama Administration the perpetrators had one last throw at us.

They couldn’t work out a way to force us to void the constitutional agreements, so they contrived to vacate them, instead, by bankrupting both the Territorial United States Government and the Municipal United States Government at the same time.  That would leave all three levels of the Federal Government inoperative and all the constitutional agreements vacated.  We would be at the mercy of every pirate and bounder and international bank in the world.

The mothballed National Government — all those juicy State trusts — and all the “personal” ESTATE TRUSTS the perpetrators established and operated “in our NAMES”, would then be easy pickings for the Secondary Creditors of the bankrupt Territorial and Municipal Government organizations to claim as “abandoned trust property”.  We would be left with nothing, penniless and homeless in our own country.

Instead, we re-issued our Sovereign Letters Patent and concluded agreements with new “Federal” Partners, the American Indian Nations.

This action prevented any “vacating” of the constitutional agreements from the federal side and again gave Notice to the world that our assets are not abandoned.

Just to drive the point home again, the Hereditary Head of State and owner of both The Great Seal of the United States of America and The Great Seal of the United States, issued the Declaration of Flag/Conveyance of the Abeyance/End of Presumed Interregnum and Proclamation in Addendum on October 21, 2017—and placed it in the public records internationally.

Our United States Civil Flag is fully restored and in use again and our Stars and Stripes has never been retired.

Despite all the lies, all the criminality, all the effort to overcome our lawful government by fraud and deceit and Breach of Trust and every other means— we are still standing, and you can be proud of both your flags and your seals.

In celebration of the restoration of your National-Level Government, we advise and invite everyone to fly the United States Civil Flag. Both flags are ours and they are both honorable for our part, but of the two, the United States Civil Flag is most uniquely and recognizably our own.  No foreign territorial or municipal government in the world can fly it, including those that claim to exercise some of our delegated powers.

We continue to press our charges and our claims and to absolutely rebut any presumption by any party anywhere that our actual sovereign government is now or ever has been in any sort of bankruptcy or interregnum. We claim every cubic centimeter of American soil, and all trusts private and public naturally belonging to the American states and people.

Say No to “Hardening” the Schools with Zero Tolerance Policies and Gun-Toting Cops


By John W. Whitehead
March 13, 2018

Just what we don’t need: more gun-toting, taser-wielding cops in government-run schools that bear an uncomfortable resemblance to prisons.

Microcosms of the police state, America’s public schools already contain almost every aspect of the militarized, intolerant, senseless, legalistic, overcriminalized, surveillance-riddled, totalitarian landscape that plagues those of us on the “outside.”

Now the Trump Administration wants to double down on these totalitarian echo chambers.

The Justice Department, headed by Attorney General Jeff Sessions, has announced that it will provide funding for schools that want to hire more resource officers. The White House has also hinted that it may repeal “Rethink School Discipline” policies, heralding a return to zero tolerance policies that treat children like suspects and criminals, especially within the public schools.

As for President Trump, he wants to “harden” the schools.

What exactly does hardening the schools entail?

More strident zero tolerance policies, greater numbers of school cops, and all the trappings of a prison complex (unsurmountable fences, entrapment areas, no windows or trees, etc.).

Just when you thought this administration couldn’t get any more tone-deaf about civil liberties, they prove once again that they have absolutely no regard for the Constitution (especially the Fourth Amendment), no concept of limited government, and no concern for the growing need to protect “we the people” against an overreaching, overbearing police state.

America’s schools today are already about as authoritarian as they come.

Young people in America are now first in line to be searched, surveilled, spied on, threatened, tied up, locked down, treated like criminals for non-criminal behavior, tasered and in some cases shot.

Roped into the government’s profit-driven campaign to keep the nation “safe” from drugs, weapons and terrorism, many schools have transformed themselves into quasi-prisons, complete with surveillance cameras, metal detectors, police patrols, zero tolerance policies, lock downs, drug sniffing dogs, strip searches and active shooter drills.

It used to be that if you talked back to a teacher, or played a prank on a classmate, or just failed to do your homework, you might find yourself in detention or doing an extra writing assignment after school.

That is no longer the case.

Nowadays, students are not only punished for minor transgressions such as playing cops and robbers on the playground, bringing LEGOs to school, or having a food fight, but the punishments have become far more severe, shifting from detention and visits to the principal’s office into misdemeanor tickets, juvenile court, handcuffs, tasers and even prison terms.

These outrageous incidents are exactly what you’ll see more of if the Trump Administration gets its way.

Increasing the number of cops in the schools only adds to the problem.

Indeed, the growing presence of police in the nation’s schools is resulting in greater police “involvement in routine discipline matters that principals and parents used to address without involvement from law enforcement officers.”

Funded by the U.S. Department of Justice, these school resource officers have become de facto wardens in elementary, middle and high schools, doling out their own brand of justice to the so-called “criminals” in their midst with the help of tasers, pepper spray, batons and brute force.

For instance, 16-year-old Alex Stone was directed by his teacher to do a creative writing assignment involving a series of fictional Facebook statuses. Alex wrote, “I killed my neighbor’s pet dinosaur. I bought the gun to take care of the business.”

Despite the fact that dinosaurs are extinct, the status fabricated, and the South Carolina student was merely following orders, his teacher reported him to school administrators, who in turn called the police.

What followed is par for the course in schools today: students were locked down in their classrooms while armed police searched Alex’s locker and bookbag, handcuffed him, charged him with disorderly conduct disturbing the school, arrested him, detained him, and then he was suspended from school.

Not even the younger, elementary school-aged kids are being spared these “hardening” tactics.

Paradoxically, by the time you add in the lockdowns and active shooter drills, instead of making the schools safer, school officials have succeeded in creating an environment in which children are so traumatized that they suffer from post-traumatic stress disorder, nightmares, anxiety, mistrust of adults in authority, as well as feelings of anger, depression, humiliation, despair and delusion.

Instead of raising up a generation of freedom fighters—which one would hope would be the objective of the schools—government officials seem determined to churn out newly minted citizens of the American police state who are being taught the hard way what it means to comply, fear and march in lockstep with the government’s dictates.

So what’s the answer, not only for the here-and-now—the children growing up in these quasi-prisons—but for the future of this country?

How do you convince a child who has been routinely handcuffed, shackled, tied down, locked up, and immobilized by government officials—all before he reaches the age of adulthood—that he has any rights at all, let alone the right to challenge wrongdoing, resist oppression and defend himself against injustice?

Most of all, how do you persuade a fellow American that the government works for him when for most of his young life, he has been incarcerated in an institution that teaches young people to be obedient and compliant citizens who don’t talk back, don’t question and don’t challenge authority?

As we’ve seen with other issues, any significant reforms will have to start locally and trickle upwards.

For starters, parents need to be vocal, visible and organized and demand that school officials 1) adopt a policy of positive reinforcement in dealing with behavior issues; 2) minimize the presence in the schools of police officers and cease involving them in student discipline; and 3) insist that all behavioral issues be addressed first and foremost with a child’s parents, before any other disciplinary tactics are attempted.

As I make clear in my book Battlefield America: The War on the American People, if you want a nation of criminals, treat the citizenry like criminals.

If you want young people who grow up seeing themselves as prisoners, run the schools like prisons.

If, on the other hand, you want to raise up a generation of freedom fighters, who will actually operate with justice, fairness, accountability and equality towards each other and their government, then run the schools like freedom forums.

Remove the metal detectors and surveillance cameras, re-assign the cops elsewhere, and start treating our nation’s young people like citizens of a republic and not inmates in a police state.

Fundamentals 1 Your Ship of State + Letter to President Trump — March 15, 2018


By Anna Von Reitz

I have been amazed and chagrined over the last few days to plumb the depths of ignorance that infest both what serves as our government and the general populace. Those who received the simple text charts that I sent out yesterday should note the line separating the top and bottom half of all three chart pages.  On top of the dividing line in green is the word “LAND” and below the line in blue is the word “SEA”.

Only one (1) entity straddles that line between the LAND and the SEA.  That entity is The United States of America (Unincorporated).  It controls the entire international land jurisdiction owed to this country and it exercises the powers retained by the states and people in the international jurisdiction of the sea, per Amendment X.  And, in the event of the incapacity of one or more of the entities entrusted to exercise our delegated powers in the international jurisdiction of the sea, we retain the right to receive those delegated powers back and to exercise them at our discretion.

The United States of America (Unincorporated) not to be confused with “The United States of America, Incorporated” —-is our Ship of State.  If our Ship of State goes down, so do we.  Everyone else has been concentrating their effort on saving their own names and estates out of the corporate bankruptcy slush pile.  Only we have been concentrating on saving our Ship of State.

The rescue of individual names and estates is akin to launching lifeboats.  It allows a few people who are awake and moving to save their own assets and defend themselves against the banks and foreign creditors who will otherwise seize upon them as chattel backing the debts of the bankrupt federal corporations.

But, ultimately, it is the Ship of State that we all have to save and reclaim from the jaws of the banks.  If we fail, then many millions of trusting, unsuspecting Americans will suffer the misery and horror of a commercial mercenary war carried out under color of law.

They will be ousted from their homes and shops and small businesses and they won’t even know what is happening or why.  The means to do this have already been suggested in Florida, Kentucky, and Pennsylvania, where people suddenly received huge “tax” bills, often over $100,000.00 worth of “extra” property taxes and “extra income tax assessments” issued with a 30 day “pay or be evicted” notice.

We fought them off and shut them down, but if we don’t band together and sail our Ship of State, there will no longer be the means to fend off these insane veiled commercial claims from the secondary creditors of the “UNITED STATES, INC.” and the “USA, Inc.”.

You are all helping by becoming aware of the issues and educating yourselves about the government you are supposed to have, the history, and  the fraud that has been played on us and on our entire country as well as many other countries throughout the world.

You are helping by acknowledging, accepting, and re-conveying your Trade Names and all the derivative NAMES to the land and soil of the actual State you were born on and recording your claim.  You are helping with your prayers and good wishes and sharing of information. Last, but not least, you are helping by sending donations that keep our guys going and keep our postage paid.

That’s all part of it, and a very necessary and valid part, too— but we, the members of our group, are the ones who already have the standing to save our Ship of State.

We are the ones that spent twenty years establishing our standing, giving Due Process, building claims, establishing court records, establishing liens, declaring capacity, re-issuing and posting Notice of our Sovereign Letters Patent to forestall any claim that we, The United States of America (Unincorporated), “no longer exist”, securing representation at the United Nations, forming contractual ties with the Native American Nations to prevent the plot to vacate our National Constitution —and so much more that can’t even be described in a book, much less an article.

Now, we are the Priority Creditors of all the federal territorial and municipal corporations worldwide.  We, the American states and nations, represented by The United States of America (Unincorporated) are the only ones that can forgive the public debts of the Territorial and Municipal United States and the debts of many other nations.

It is important that you all understand the absolutely crucial and pivotal role that I and my husband and these others, members of the Living Law Firm, and the American Indian Nations, play in bringing forward the claims of The United States of America (Unincorporated).  More “crew members” join us every day, but we are the ones who are in place at the ship’s wheel, turning our Ship of State around and claiming back the assets of our states and our people.

It was the intention of the international banks to claim that our entire country was abandoned and that it has no viable government, because the Territorial and Municipal corporations have all bankrupted themselves and our National Level government has supposedly been “kept in trust” by these fraud artists for many years, while our assets have been fraudulently used as collateral backing the private debts of these corporate governmental service providers.

They meant to take it all on a “claim of abandonment”.

Just like they engineered the confiscation of privately held American gold back in the 1930’s, used it as collateral backing their own bankruptcy, and then when the bankruptcy settled, came back in and claimed that all that gold was “abandoned”, —-heirs and owners unknown.

They meant to play that trick against our entire country and all our assets.

They meant to claim that gee, tolks, look at all these abandoned state land trusts and all these unclaimed individual estates, and oh, by the way, all these “PERSONS” that have no owners, guess it’s all free for the Secondary Creditors — the banks — to claim.

THAT is what they have been working at — basically, the foreclosure of our entire country and all our assets public and private, because of the relatively paltry debts of two foreign corporations whose only business here is to provide us with essential government services.

It’s that far bigger claim that we are fighting and denouncing as fraud and odious debt being held against innocent Third Parties who have been deliberately defrauded in Breach of Trust and violation of Commercial Contract.

The United States of America (Unincorporated) is still here, still viable, and is claiming back all of its assets, public and private, every scrap that is owed to the people and the actual states of this country.

Help steer your Ship of State off the reef planned for it— and save yourselves and everyone else in the process.  Once these issues are decided in our favor, we can straighten out the bookkeeping nightmare these vermin have created, and return everyone’s property to them, worldwide.

We can even help Mr. Trump drain the Swamp and get the Territorial and Municipal United States into solvent and properly ordered condition.

The United States of America is the Proper Name of this country, and its proper capacity and sovereign form is as an unincorporated Body Politic, operating as an unincorporated business engaged in peaceful international trade.  So here we are at the eleventh hour, giving proof that our government and our property is not abandoned.

Hopefully you all have some inkling now of the scope and importance of what The Living Law Firm  and the Michigan General Jural Assembly and a couple hundred other local and state government organizations have undertaken and understand, too, why our time is so limited and our resources always strained.  We have taken on nothing less than the Devil himself, the whole Empire of Mystery Babylon, all the scheming banks and crooked bureaucrats in the world.

We have done it all with volunteers, with the sword and light of Truth, with the passion for compassion, with the determination of the green shoots in spring, with the hope that perseveres and the Will that will not yield.  We have done it for you because you were asleep, we have done it because of you, and so many other innocents who have suffered at the hands of these corporate scumbags.

So by all means and with all speed, seize hold of your Trade Names and derivative NAMES and land them safe on the land and soil.  Boot up your local jural assemblies.  Prepare for any stormy weather that might be.  Pray for your grand old Ship of State under her Civil Flag as she sails into the courts and marketplaces of the world and declares— “Hey!  Those are our assets!”—and pray for all those who sail her.

Letter to President Trump — March 15, 2018


From Anna Von Reitz

Dear President Trump:

We are the only ones who can forgive the debts of the Territorial and Municipal United States, and who can restore your good credit and put the government corporations back in the black.

That may come as a shock to you, but it is the Truth.

Not only that, we are the Priority Creditors of all the other Territorial and Municipal Governments and all the corporations that have been formed under the authority of those governments worldwide.

Think about that.

We can simply forgive our debtors by balancing out the debts and the credits owed, and go from there. Return the assets to those they actually belong to, and beat the nukes into plowshares, because there will no longer be any fraud or lack of abundance to fight over anymore.

The bankers are only self-interested middlemen trying to whoop up a “claim on abandonment” to seize our assets by mistaking them for Territorial or Municipal “trust assets”. To prevent that and get your own butt out of the wringer requires making peace with the people and the states and the National Government that your predecessors have treated with contempt and in Gross Breach of Trust and violation of commercial contract.

Make friends with those who might otherwise appear to be enemies. Make peace with your brother on the way to court. Ask us to forgive the sins and debts and be done with it.

The So Called Republic the Living Law Firm and Claims Update + Solving the problem of Individual Freedom and Sovereignty


By Anna Von Reitz

I want to make it official and let everyone know that we, The Living Law Firm, are in dog-paddle mode, trying to keep noses above water and keep making progress.   Those of you who have prepared for “significant social unrest” and who can still afford to help with the financial needs involved, please help.  It costs me an average of $200 per week per law suit simply to keep even and we have all sorts of other reimbursements for travel, copy fees, gas, lodgings, etc.

As I write, I have $142 in my PayPal account and $140 in bills to pay.  That is the way it has gone throughout this whole endeavor, and I take it as a literal sign from God that all our needs are taken care of, literally, almost dollar for dollar every month.

Last week, just before my surgery, I managed to file the claim under Law of Compensation and Law of Restitution, needed for the land jurisdiction states to be reclaimed and for appointment of their care-taking back to the actual original sovereign government doing business as The United States of America (unincorporated) and our corporate (but unincorporated) states doing business as California, Wisconsin, Vermont, et alia.

Everyone needs to understand that there are unincorporated businesses and incorporated businesses.  Both are “corporate” in the sense that they are legal fictions. Both can do business and both can communicate with each other, but one has the capacity to operate as a sovereign entity and the other does not.

Thus, The United States of America (Unincorporated) founded by our forefathers on September 9, 1776, is a sovereign entity created by living men and vouchsafed as an heirloom to their living progeny.

The United States of America, Incorporated, a foreign, privately owned corporation in the business of providing governmental services, first sprang into existence in 1868, was bankrupted in 1907, came out of bankruptcy in 1953, and now, some misguided acolytes are trying to resurrect this shell as “The Republic” and claiming that they have a “General Post Office” related to us, all from their cozy nest in Costa Rica.

Anyone who wants to have a Costa Rican governmental services corporation in here providing us with the services delegated to the Federal Government instead of providing those same services ourselves or contracting them out under our direct supervision— raise your hands….

Like their predecessors, these charlatans will try to convince you that they are your legitimate government, but the Lie is easy to discern. No incorporated entity can be your lawful government.  By definition all sovereign governments are unincorporated.  

Therefore, when a corporation —any corporation— claims to be your government, what is the appropriate response?  Laugh.  

An incorporated entity might have a contract to provide stipulated governmental services, but that is where its authority begins and ends.

They also call themselves “The Republic” when in fact there was never “a” Republic to begin with, but rather fifty “republican” states— fifty republics, not one.  The Federal Government that they pretend to be, is in fact our “missing” National Government— a subcontractor functioning in international jurisdiction as a union of the sovereign (unincorporated) States of America.

The republican states (Latin: Feminine) hold the jurisdiction of the soil owed to this country.  The Republic States (Latin: Masculine) hold the international jurisdiction of the land owed to this country, and together form the National Government owed to us.

The original federation of soil jurisdiction states was formed September 9, 1776 as a union of states called “The United States of America”.  The confederation of States formed under The Articles of Confederation (1781) resulted in a union of Republic States known as “the united States of America”.

Two unions of states/States are involved from the start. Neither one of these unions were incorporated and none of these states are incorporated.

So there you have The Truth.  Your actual government — the government you are owed — has never been incorporated, and God-willing, never will be, because that would mean that you were subject to a some other foreign sovereign “state”  operating through governmental services corporations.

Like Costa Rica operating “The United States of America, Incorporated”.

Those who can and who hear the call— please share whatever you can to help us bear the costs of these court actions and all the research supporting them.  It’s not something any one of us could be expected to bear alone, but which is, if everyone grabs an oar—- something we can do together, as it should be, as a union of sovereign nation-states.

Our PayPal is: avannavon@gmail.com and I can receive checks and money orders via: Anna Maria Riezinger, c/o Post Office 520994, Big Lake, Alaska 99652. 

Final note:  Both parent corporations that we have been dealing with, the UNITED STATES, INC. and the USA, Inc., are now in bankruptcy.  None of the traditional remedies work at this point (since the first week in October 2017), because both of these entities and their franchises are now subject to the Bankruptcy Trustees that have been named by Secondary Creditors.

That doesn’t mean that you should just stop and not make your claims and not transfer your assets— you should do all that you can to establish your claim to your name and estate on the public record.

We are continuing our effort to secure a systemic relief and remedy that will apply to both federal citizens and non-citizen nationals.  We have every hope that there will be peace and a just settlement of all these issues down the road, but meantime urge everyone to take what actions are possible to “stake your claim” and raise the Civil Flag.

Solving the problem of Individual Freedom and Sovereignty


by Anna Von Reitz
To All—

I am doing this with a skeleton staff and a huge amount of work on my table. I wish I could “do it all” and help people with their individual cases, too, but I can’t. There are literally millions of Americans sitting in private for-profit jails who should not be there and trillions of dollars of American assets at risk. I have to keep my eye on the ball and we all have to keep moving forward as best we can. For me, that means pursuing the UN, the rats in DC, the World Bank. For the rest of you, that means educating yourselves, your families, your friends, your neighbors, and yes, the sheriffs and “county” officials and “state” officials and everyone else.

These groups of undeclared commercial mercenaries have “invaded” our country for the purpose of dispossessing us. The only thing that will stop them is a widespread public knowledge of who they are and what they are and an equally public and determined exposure of the facts.

How many “County” Sheriffs really want to prosecute innocent people under color of law? How many want to risk prosecution— real prosecution under Public Law— if they do?

That’s what’s coming, folks.

Any time that you incorporate anything, it falls under the international jurisdiction of the sea and under the Satanic Law of the Sea or the almost-as-bad Law Merchant.

So what do you do to get back to land?

First, foremost, Job One—- you declare yourself one of the “free sovereign and independent people of the United States” described by the Definitive Treaty of Peace called the Treaty of Paris, 1783, Article III and NOT an “inhabitant”— NOT a British Crown subject nor subject of any kind.

Second, make it clear that you are “citizen” of your organic state on the land— oregon, wisconsin, idaho, and so on. They will try to claim that you are “stateless” but you are not. Your “States” are the “States of America” and they are each unincorporated trading companies in their own right, owed the good faith and protection of the British government and the British Monarch.

Third— you all have decisions to make. You elected the “county officials” in good faith to operate the land jurisdiction of your county, but because of either ignorance or fraud, they are operating as local franchises of a bank owned and operated government services corporation instead.

You can’t liquidate such a “county franchise” because it belongs to the bank, but you can liquidate the bank for fraud and criminal activity. Alternatively, you can leave such a “county” in operation so long as it serves and addresses ONLY federal employees and others who are subject to the federal corporation and hold Public Elections to fill all the vacant Public Offices of your own County on the land. Just make the appropriate Public Notices and organize the unincorporated Counties, elect your Public Officials, and go for it. Elect your Common Law Court Judges, Clerks, Bailiffs, Sheriffs— don’t forget the Coroner. And then once your counties are organized, organize your unincorporated States—- which are not “States of Anything”—- they are States, period: Alaska State, Iowa State, Oregon State.

Once properly elected, bonded, and sworn in, your land jurisdiction County Sheriff is the top Law Enforcement Officer in the country. He can deputize as many men from the community as he needs, saddle up, and ride. He is fully empowered to go to the federal officials and demand that they fork over all American state citizens that have been improperly prosecuted under statutory law to his custody. The feds have to turn over all but those accused of murder or assault with a deadly weapon.

The Sheriff can then determine if the victim of this fraud did anything against the Public Law and release them if they did not.

The federales operating their “states” and “counties” as corporate franchises have been making money hand over fist by pretending that we are all “inhabitants” of their jurisdiction and subjects of the British Crown. They then enforce their in-house corporate administrative “codes and regulations” as if these were Public Laws. By creating 80,000,000 “statutory laws” they create infinite opportunity to accuse people of “crimes” and throw them in jail— a “service” that they charge the victims for to the tune of $25,000.00 per misdemeanor and over a million for each felony.

This is Big Business, big syndicated crime. But there are only so many of them, and a lot more of us, and guess what? They have been running rampant all over the rest of the world, too, so that virtually everyone on the planet hates their guts.

If you are Vladimir Putin or the Chinese General Secretary, what makes more sense? Fighting 390 million Americans, or attacking the real cause of the problem?

It’s time for us to clean up our own mess. That observation goes out to the “inhabitants” as well as the “free sovereign and independent people of the United States”. If we don’t, the rest of the world is going to have to come in here and clean it up for us. It’s that simple and it’s that bad.

So, get moving. Know who you are and assert it. Educate, educate, educate—- and take action.

I am obviously fighting the Good Fight on a large scale, doing all that I can to defend our country from continued usurpation and criminality. This situation is being exposed and put under the royal noses and everywhere else it needs to be, but this also means that I don’t have time to get involved in individual cases.

Remember what I said— there are literally MILLIONS of Americans rotting in private, for-profit jails who have committed no crime, who have been kidnapped into the foreign federal jurisdiction, accused under inapplicable statutory law, convicted, and there they sit being used as slave labor while the perpetrators of these crimes charge our treasury for the “public service”.

What would happen if I and the others like me stopped to help Joe and Nell and Jake? Then the real job— ending this whole system of predation and injustice— would get lost in the infinite need of millions of individuals and nothing would get done on the larger scale.

Please understand. If I could, I would walk into every courtroom and stop every travesty. I would seize every bond of every state and bank involved in this, too. But I cannot do it all and I can’t do it alone, and if everyone keeps calling me and emailing me with their individual problems, I can’t get my work done.

Now, I’ve given you all more than enough to do. Declare and record (do NOT “register”) your declaration of Political Status. Realize that “Sovereign Citizen” is an oxymoron— you can’t be both at the same time. You are either a sovereign (as with respect to the United States) or you are a citizen (as with respect to your organic state of colorado). It’s one or the other.

Realize that these “inhabitants” who are subjects of the British Crown are here to provide you and your States of America (unincorporated trading companies) with “essential governmental services”—- Article IV, Section 3, Clause 2—and to defend your national trust — “Preamble” — and have no other legitimate business on our shores. They shouldn’t even be talking to you unless they are spoken to.

And they should not be “misaddressing” any mail to YOUR NAME in any configuration, but especially not any NAME that uses only a middle initial.

Think, people—- get out your Shinola Sensors!


These vermin are charging you under names that aren’t even legal names.

Ask your “County” “Sheriff” and your “State” “Troopers” to explain that one to you?

Once you get girded up, organize your unincorporated county government to operate the land jurisdiction of the United States. And don’t let anyone stop you or tell you that you can’t do it. This is your country. Rise and shine!

If the British Crown and the City State of Westminster want to fight with us after guaranteeing us “perpetual amity” by treaty, we’ll just point out who the real rotters are and join with the rest of the entire world in dealing with the problem.
