Do you want your Constitutional Republic back? If so, this article provides you with information that will help you achieve that objective. It won’t come through Constitutional Conventions, Conventions of the States, or memorizing the Constitution and going to court with constitutional arguments in a court system the jurisdiction for which functions under the Uniform Commercial Code (UCC) and Maritime Law.
Your Constitutions (national and state) have been put in hibernation and are brought out like the good silver… only when needed to make an impression or to be used in self defense for crimes committed against the people by those in government who are supposed to serve us.
Some questions for you:
- Are you aware that the United States is incorporated? No, this article isn’t about Strawmen or your name being in CAPITAL letters on all legal documents like your birth certificate, driver’s license, Social Security Card, Passport, etc. There is the United States of America and there is the United States of America, Inc. There is a good reason for what happened and it does not involve the bankruptcy of this nation.
- Are you aware that the state in which you live is incorporated? All 50 states are incorporated. Read on and I’ll provide you with absolute evidence… not opinion, but evidence.
- Are you aware that your county is incorporated?
- Are you aware that your city (or township) is incorporated? (Most of us are aware of city incorporations.)
- Are you aware that most departments within your city and county are incorporated? Yes, I mean the Sheriff’s Department, the Police Department, the City and County and State Courts (even your State Supreme Court), the Public Library, the Public Works Department, the Department of Education and the County Clerk? Almost every department in your city and county is incorporated. I must admit, this disclosure surprised me more than the others. Even more interesting, most people who staff these departments – including county commissioners, sheriffs, librarians, police chiefs, and other department heads – appear, as I was, unaware of the corporate status of their “departments.”
Here’s a link to my County Sheriff’s office. Notice that it is registered as a “privately held company.” The name listed, Stan Hilkey, was the Sheriff of Mesa County at the time I downloaded the information a couple of months ago. Look your own county Sheriff up on Manta.com and see if your law enforcement is incorporated. My county courts are also incorporated. Are yours? To prove it’s not just a Colorado thing, here’s a link to Alabama’s courts as listed at Manta.com. Look yours up… my bet is that they are also incorporated.
6. Are you aware that corporations are run under the jurisdiction of Statutory Law, not Constitutional or Common Law? Are you aware that Articles of Incorporation based on the policies and regulations in place in all 50 States are governed by the Uniform Commercial Code and/or Maritime Law which are the basis of Statutory Law?
In other words, when wearing their corporate hats (which is whenever it is to their advantage to do so), our federal, state, county, and city governments and the departments contained within them must comply with the policies of the Uniform Commercial Code, not with the Constitution of the United States or your State Constitution. The courts, too, are incorporated. No wonder we see so little Constitutional or Common Law in our courts! No wonder administrative law judges can make the law up as a trial proceeds (or so it appears to those thinking the jurisdiction under which courts function is Constitutional or Common Law)!
This information should answer the questions of many Americans who wander around shaking their heads trying to figure out why our courts are making the insane, unconstitutional decisions that spew out of them like the Devil’s bad breath. The Courts are incorporated and comply with the requirements of Statutory Law based on the policies and procedures dictated by the Uniform Commercial Code or Maritime Law, not the United States Constitution or your State’s Constitution.
People look at their small town police departments being equipped as if they are General Patton in the 1940’s powering his way through Germany and wonder why Humvees and SWAT teams are needed to protect them. Who – or what – are they really protecting?
And it goes beyond our police departments and sheriffs’ offices to our courts and schools and property taxes… and everything else.
You need to know whether what I’m saying is true or false. Go to Manta.com and look up your own state, county and city. Especially look at the departments within your city and county… your fire, sheriff and police departments, your county clerk, the State and County Courts, etc.
Why is this information critical if we are to understand why America is in many cases functioning in a way designed to destroy Her? Why is it “dangerous” information?
The answer is direct and simple: CORPORATIONS (INCLUDING GOVERNMENT CORPORATIONS) DO NOT FUNCTION UNDER A CONSTITUTION. THEY FUNCTION UNDER ARTICLES OF INCORPORATION WHICH ARE SUBJECT TO BUSINESS LAWS OF THE UNIFORM COMMERCIAL CODE AND MARITIME LAW, NOT CONSTITUTIONAL LAW. EVEN MORE IMPORTANT, CORPORATIONS CAN BE DISSOLVED! THAT IS THE BIGGEST DANGER OF THE PEOPLE BECOMING AWARE OF THIS INFORMATION. THE CORPORATE STRUCTURE THEY HAVE BUILT TO REMOVE OUR ACCESS TO CONSTITUTIONAL AND COMMON LAW IN OUR COURTS CAN, LIKE ANY CORPORATION, BE DISSOLVED. IT IS, PERHAPS, THEIR ACHILLES HEEL – their greatest weakness! We, the People, CAN DISSOLVE THEM!
The corporations cannot be dissolved by the government employees who work for them; they must be dissolved by the people. How? County by county. These corporations were imposed from the top down and the only way to disassemble them is from the bottom up. Carry a petition. Get the required number of signatures and get it on your county ballot next election. The initiative should say something like “No government entity in _____ County shall incorporate or be incorporated. All government agencies, divisions and departments must function under the legal jurisdiction of the Constitution of the State of _____ and be subject to the limits imposed on government by the Constitution of the United States and the State of _______.” I’m not a lawyer and I’m sure you can get a stronger statement from an attorney experienced at writing ballot initiatives.
As I will point out in Part II of this article, liberty is not free and if you want your constitutional rights restored, it will require some long-term planning and changes in the way county costs are defined and financed… but it can be done! If you would rather our cost of liberty and constitutional rights be paid via budgeting and taxation instead of young men and women being unnecessarily killed and maimed in unlawful, unconstitutional wars, you will help dissolve the government corporations that help make such tragedies possible.
I must admit, I am surprised this material has been around as long as it has and none of the many lawyers who have been exposed to it had a light go off in their heads saying “Corporations do not function under Constitutional Law which is why Americans are being abused by their courts — and corporations can be dissolved, SO LET’S DISSOLVE THEM!.”
You can logically assume that if your city/township, county, state, and federal governments are incorporated, they do not function under the aegis (protection) of a Constitution of any kind. They function under the rules and regulations of the Uniform Commercial Code. The law and how we lost the jurisdictional protection of Common and Constitutional law is the topic of Part II of this article.
Do you now understand why your courts and law enforcement officials do not act in accordance with the limits placed on government by the United States Constitution – or, even more important, your State’s Constitution?
In the past month, I’ve been to two meetings about jurisdictional law given by experts on Constitutional law. Both were very good… both speakers were quick to point out the rights God grants each of us and the limits on government guaranteed under the Constitution. Neither realized that the constitutional rights of the people are being badly abused because of the corporate status of federal, state, county, city governments and most of the departments that function under those entities and thus do not answer to Federal and State Constitutions. Neither speaker realized that corporations are under the jurisdiction of Statutory or business law – the Uniform Commercial Code/Maritime Law. It raises a difficult question for constitutional experts: If the various governments, including our courts, function under the jurisdiction of the Uniform Commercial Code rather than the Constitution, how important is a Constitution that has been hi-jacked?
Before moving on to Part II of this article which will explain the kinds of jurisdictional law being practiced in American courts, I want to provide you what I promised. Evidence.
It’s time to stop speculating about issues, wondering (what a waste of time) if this crisis or that one is a false flag. “They” rely on chaos to keep you off balance because only by keeping you off balance can they take their next unlawful step designed to eliminate the asset singly responsible for preventing socialism or communism in America’s capitalist economy: The middle class. They throw one issue after another at you… from amnesty to police brutality; from shopping center shootings to elementary school shootings to shootings of police officers sitting innocently in their car. They take you from one false flag to another. They throw one war after another at you… or threaten a new war. As the manipulation of gold was used to cause the Great Depression of the early 1900’s, they use the new gold – oil – to manipulate this even Greater Depression.
They can call it a recession all they want, but the only reason people are not standing in food lines as they did in the 1930s is food stamps. They called the job creation programs of the Great Depression the Work(s) Progress Administration (WPA). In the 30s, cities all over the country got new parks and recreation facilities, bridges were built as were schools and highways… the work of the WPA. It provided jobs for the unemployed. For this current Greater Depression it is called “shovel ready jobs.”
When they hire a new government employee, it depletes the tax base rather than adding to it, so new government hires cannot be categorized as “new jobs” produced by the economy. But the Obama Administration needs to look like it is doing SOMETHING right, so they “create” new jobs by funding them via private sector contractor work projects. Then they can be counted as new jobs… just as Franklin Delano Roosevelt did with WPA jobs – but government, not a thriving free marketplace, is paying for these “new jobs.” Regardless of stock market ups and downs, the marketplace is not thriving. It is being manipulated.
I believe the core problem centers on the incorporation of every federal, state, and county and all of the departments within each and the resulting system that had to be built to support itself. Logic tells me that if we get rid of the corporations, we remove their ability to manipulate our courts and all government offices with no personal accountability. I believe if we take action while we still can, we can retrieve our nation from what the international central banking system has thrown in the trash bin of history without first ensuring the corpse is dead.
If I’m correct, this is not only the most important article I’ve ever written for any news publication, it is also one of the most important articles you will ever read. It’s also the most dangerous… for me, at least – and for Paul Walter, the publisher of NewsWithViews.com.
Why is it dangerous? Because it offers a solution to the conundrum (unsolvable puzzle) “they” have created. Over a long period of time (it began in the late 1800s), “they” created the conundrum to give them sufficient time to globally enslave all but the elitists. The same techniques if not the same programs are being used around the world. The objective? Global government composed of oligarchies (an elite class and a labor class – no middle class) worldwide.
Manta.com is a Web site that provides corporate information. It costs a few hundred dollars to be a member of Dunn & Bradstreet – and when I owned my own company, I was a member. I no longer am. So, I use Manta.com because it’s free. Manta provides the names of about 40 million for-profit private companies – including government.
Here is a Manta.com copy of a listing for the State of Colorado.
If you look at the bottom of the Manta form, you’ll see that Democrat Governor Hickenlooper is referenced as Colorado’s CEO rather than the State’s Governor. Why? Just as corporations do not run on Constitutional law, neither do corporations have Governors. They have Chief Executive Officers. Or, they have Managers… check out California’s Governor, Jerry Brown. Manta.com lists him as California’s “Manager” and California is “A privately held company in Sacramento, CA.”
Here’s more evidence of the incorporation of America’s sovereign states and their cities and counties.
Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker is, like Hickenlooper, listed as that state’s Chief Executive Officer. On the Walker link to Wisconsin’s Washington, D.C. Executive Office (why do Governors need offices in D.C.? – because their state is incorporated there and a corporation needs an office in the location of incorporation), scroll down and look at the Washington, D.C. Executive Office for the State of New York. Wisconsin and New York are on the same page. This particular link tells you that the State of New York is incorporated in the District of Columbia and that Derek Douglas is the Manager of the Washington, D.C. office, not the Governor. I researched Douglas, wondering why he is listed as the Washington, D.C.-based New York Governor’s Office Manager. I found a Press Release from the White House stating that Derek Douglas was an urban affairs special assistant to the President of the United States.
Maryland’s Executive Office D.C. listing shows its State of Incorporation as the District of Columbia. Does it surprise you to learn that Governors have Executive Offices located in the District of Columbia? New York is just one example. Go here to find the D.C. Executive Offices for Pennsylvania, Iowa, Florida, Wisconsin, Maryland, North Carolina, South Carolina, Idaho, California, Delaware, and Oregon. This article provides too little space to list all 50, but they are there. Here’s the link for the Commonwealth of Massachusetts.
I said our cities and counties have been incorporated. Here is the Manta.com listing for the City of Birmingham, Alabama. State of Incorporation is Alabama… the city IS incorporated. Most of us know that cities are incorporated. Most of us did not know that our counties are incorporated and that almost every department and division within our incorporated cities and counties are incorporated, too.
For many years, people have talked about government Comprehensive Annual Financial Reports (CAFRs) and have tried to find where the CAFR funds are hidden. Where in the world could “they” be hiding them? The federal, state, county and city corporations would be a good guess. No one knows about them.
Did I mention that each of these entities has two identities? There is, for example, the State of Colorado – and there is the State of Colorado, Inc. There is a County of Denver – and there is a Denver County, Inc., etc. They cannot drop the Constitutional identity because if they do, they lose “We, the People…” who didn’t volunteer to be part of their corporation. Thus, it appears every government, no matter how large or how small, in the country has dual identities, one incorporated and one unincorporated.
Here are some Manta.com links you can use to start doing your own research. When you find your Sheriff’s Department is incorporated, when you find your local Courts are incorporated, you might just want to start carrying a petition to get signatures demanding a vote of the people to dissolve all government corporations within your county and demand that they function under your State Constitution rather than under Statutory Jurisdiction which offers citizens no Constitutional protections from government usurpation of the power of individual citizens. It will surprise only a few to learn in Part II of this article that it all began with the Federal Reserve System.
- Alabama Courts
•State Courts in Montgomery, AL
• Chief Justice Supreme Court, Alabama
• U.S. Courts, Alabama
• Town of Columbia, Alabama
• Manta lists 39,866 police departments
• Veterans Affairs Colorado
Or you can contact any of the 374 veterans organizations listed as companies by the Federal Government. Now we know how they could withhold medical benefits from our veterans. We know why no one who participated in withholding the medical services from dying men and women entitled to those services was terminated from government payrolls: They were wearing their corporate hats.
Here are links to some Manta.com veterans’ listings (you usually have to scroll to the bottom of the page to get what you want… not all listings about veterans involve government agencies like the Veterans Administration; Manta lists private companies that deal with veterans, too).
• Alaska (4,381)
• Arizona (8,988)
• Arkansas (8,508)
• California (35,095)
• Colorado (9,647)
• Connecticut (7,390)
Dunn & Bradstreet is the official organization that registers and keeps track of American business credit ratings. They assign DUNS code numbers so corporate credit ratings can be found by lenders or other creditors when companies apply for credit. Below, you will find the DUNS code number for your state and its largest city.
Below are the Dunn & Bradstreet numbers assigned to some federal government offices. After the federal government listings, every state and its largest population center DUNS data is provided. The DUNS numbers are not the result of my own research — the Manta.com material is data I have been personally researching since last summer. The DUNS numbers have been listed on the Internet since February 2013, but I have been unable to find the person who did all of this work. I will say the Louisiana and Tennessee numbers appear incorrect (all have 9 numbers assigned except these two). As a non Dunn & Bradstreet member, I have no way to go to the D&B site and verify them but hope they will be helpful to you.
This list creates a lot of interesting questions. For example, why does the U.S. Internal Revenue Service need a DUNs number – unless it is incorporated? Looking at the above list of departments within the U.S. Government, does it give you any insight to how “they” get away with the VA scandal, Fast and Furious guns across the border, Benghazi, the IRS discrimination against conservative groups applying for tax exempt status? Relative to the law, corporations are governed by the Uniform Commercial Code (or the Law of the Seas – sometimes called Maritime Law). They have no obligation to protect anyone’s Constitutional rights when functioning under their corporate hats – and they keep the Constitutional hat available in case they get caught and need to declare their Constitutional rights to certain protections – like Lois Lerner’s use of the Fifth Amendment when she testified before Congress. Perhaps that explains the smirk on her face during that proceeding?
Remember the controversy about Lerner’s appearance before the Senate Committee before which she testified? “She can’t make a statement pronouncing her innocence and then declare her Fifth Amendment rights to avoid answering questions about her possible guilt! That’s against the law!” That’s what every constitutional law expert said… and had she been functioning under the Constitution, they would have been correct.
When she made her statement, she was wearing her corporate hat. When she declared her rights under the Constitution, she was wearing her constitutional hat. It is the best possible example I can give you about why they need to maintain their rights under BOTH the Constitution and the Corporations for which they work. The Constitution gives them protections from personal liability they would not otherwise have.
Here is the Dunn & Bradstreet listing of numbers assigned to cities and states:
Part II of this article will explain how America’s laws morphed from Constitutional to Statutory law. It involves debt (and explains why Congress is so adamantly tied to ever increasing and ongoing debt). [The book: The Coming Battle, published in 1899, documents how the politicians of that period didn’t want the debt paid off. They wanted the debt to be rolled over from generation to generation. It continues to this day. It’s a must read.]
