I have established the American States and Nations Bank— actually three banks—
(1) a repository bank, (2) a sovereign international bank and (3) a state bank
operated under Article X. These serve different purposes, but overall serve the same
end of securing American assets, expediting trade, and promoting the use of lawful
money—- basically all asset-based currencies.
My concern is that over half the world either currently is or will soon be trading in
currencies backed by precious metals. Only 1% of Americans have any gold, which
leaves them unable to trade with all the countries that are or will be using gold. It
also concerns me that the abuse of legal tender may lead to problems that leave
Mom and Pop and the Kids back home unable to purchase simple things at the
I have recommended (not because I am a “Gold Bug” but because I am practical)
that everyone invest in at least a small amount of gold and silver sufficient to pay for
basic needs for 1-6 months, or however much people can set aside. And although
Karatbars is relatively expensive on a per piece basis because of the cost of
packaging small amounts of gold, assaying it, etc., I have recommended it as a good
idea because frankly, if things go South, the price of gold will rise astronomically.
That could lead to a situation where a one ounce gold coin could be valued at $5000
Anyone who has had trouble cashing a $100 bill at a store can appreciate the
problem. Can you imagine the cashiers biting the coin to make sure it is real gold, as
they used to do back in the days of the Gold Rush?— before they will sell you a loaf
of bread and a gallon of milk? Or having the store manager tell you, I am sorry, but
we can’t “break” your $5000 gold coin into some other form of currency?
Crazy making and scary as this proposition is, it is what it is, and Americans have
been told that it is coming for a long time. Silver is also our saving grace and our
traditional lawful money and I advocate everyone getting some silver set aside, too
More Questions and Answers About American States and Nations Bank
By Judge Anna von Reitz
I set up the Articles of Organization for the American States and Nations Bank and helped establish its first business office here in Alaska. I also function as its first Comptroller, a responsibility I will not relinquish until I am sure that the endeavor is properly safeguarded, organized, and in good and honest hands going forward.
These very simple statements— Articles of Organization— condense the nature, purpose, and fundamental organizational structure and accountability of managers within the bank.
There is, of course, a great deal of work and security development behind all of it that is not immediately apparent, but becomes so upon reflection. Each of the principal managers, including the Comptroller, have multiple functions at the start that are too complex, ephemeral, and varied to describe in the Articles as any part of the permanent position within the organization.
I want to stress the fact that the American States and Nations Bank is an International Organization, not an incorporated entity or franchise of any kind; it is organized under Article X of the original and actual Constitution for these United States (land jurisdiction) as part of the reserved powers of the American People and their organic states. It is a “sovereign bank”.
It is necessary for us to act as an International Organization because each one of the Several States are also separate Sovereign Nations, thus all trade between the organic Nations is in fact “international” in nature.
Think of it this way—- both “States” and “Nations” are political entities. “States” operate primarily in the international jurisdiction of the sea through incorporated entities such as the “State of California”. Nations operate their affairs on the land jurisdiction through unincorporated international organizations, for example, the Alaska State or the Wyoming State, both of which can more exactly be termed the Alaska Nation and the Wyoming Nation.
The confusion arises from calling nations “states” and only differentiating among them by slight differences in name: Alaska State = Nation on the Land, State of Alaska = Incorporated Legal Fiction.
In the same way, international banks operate in the international jurisdiction of the sea as incorporated entities, and they operate entirely in the realm of commerce. Commerce is business carried on between CORPORATIONS including “State of” corporations. Thus, you, a living man named something like “George Michael Finkelstein” have a “person” named after you, “GEORGE MICHAEL FINKELSTEIN” which allows you to do business as YOU— a corporation. You simply haven’t been made privy to this cozy arrangement benefiting the banks and “governmental services corporations” that have enfranchised “YOU” as a franchise like a Dairy Queen franchise and used “YOU” for their benefit and forced “YOU” to operate in the realm of international commerce whether you— the living man—knew it or not. The Alaska State has similarly suffered the predations of the State of Alaska and the STATE OF ALASKA.
There is, however, the option to form an international bank that functions as an unincorporated international organization (as opposed to a corporation) operating on the land jurisdiction, and which operates entirely in the realm of trade. Trade is business carried on between people and their Nation States, like the Alaska State and the Florida State. This is what the American States and Nations Bank is. If you are a living man or woman, you will want and need to trade with a bank organized as we are organized. If your organization — Jural Assembly — Township, County, or State Organization represents living people and actual soil, you will want to have an account with American States and Nations Bank.
The advantage of such a bank is that it deals with you as one of the people instead of treating you as a corporate franchisee. It can guarantee your privacy and the security of your funds in ways that no incorporated franchise can. It is also accountable for its actions and subject to the actual Public Law— “bail ins” and “bail outs” and other such criminal nonsense are not possible when you bank with a sovereign, private bank. It also deals in lawful money, which means that you have an option and a place to go where you can exchange actual assets, issue lawful notes and create lawful securities.
As with all things, greater freedom requires greater self-responsibility and greater integrity. The American States and Nations Bank has to function under complete commercial liability. That means that we have to stand behind what we do and put our own — not just the bank’s assets — at risk. There is no corporate veil. We can insure depositor’s assets via private insurance provisions and we can bond certain aspects of our operations, but there is no FDIC here just as there is no obligation to kow-tow to the demands of any corporate bosses.
If you are familiar with and accept the practices and risks of the commercial banks, or you honestly and knowledgeably accept “enfranchisement”, and all the presumptions of “United States Citizenship” which that entails, American States and Nations Bank may not be the answer for you, but for millions of American State Nationals who need and want their birthright political status honored and who are tired of the monopolistic abuses and corrupt practices of both the Federal Reserve and IMF, it’s time to come home.
