The IRS Arbitrary Capricious Arrogant And Corrupt

“Life is a fight, a fight to stay alive and a fight to keep others from taking your life or your liberty from you!” — Ron Ewart

Many of our readers are aware of our difficulties with the IRS and the articles we have written describing those difficulties, along with just how corrupt the IRS has become.  We will cover more on that issue, later in the article.  Hopefully, President Trump’s Tax Cut and Reform Act of 2017 will cut the IRS off at the knees, or at least slow it down.  We’ll see.

Prior to the passage of the 16th Amendment, the federal government managed to exist on revenues from “Duties, Imposts and Excises to pay the Debts and provide for the common Defense and general Welfare of the United States but all Duties, Imposts and Excises shall be uniform throughout the United States.”  (Article I, Section 8, Clause 1 of the U. S. Constitution.)

But alas, the taxes collected in accordance with the Constitution were not enough and the bankers that loaned vast sums of money to the United States government, were uneasy about their investments.  Congress, pressured by the bankers, capitulated to their lobby and the 16th Amendment was born in 1913 that created the Federal Reserve and the Internal Revenue Service under a progressive tax rate system, where higher earners pay a significantly higher tax rate, a direct violation of the equal protection clause of the U. S. Constitution.

We are told that the Federal Reserve was created to smooth out the peaks and valleys of our economic system, as prior to the 16th Amendment bank runs and failures were common.  Perhaps there may be an element of truth to this argument.  However, the real reason for the 16th Amendment was that the bankers needed a steady, determinable source of re-payment to secure their loans and what better way to do it than to tax the income of all Americans and to create an agency that puts the fear of God into those Americans to insure compliance of a so-called voluntary law, even if it violated the Constitution.  This could be called, “security for a loan at the point of a gun where the government holds the gun and your head is where it is pointed.”    That is how the Cosa Nostra does it.   Pay up, or we’ll break your leg.

Since 1913, the government and the IRS have grown exponentially in both enforcement power and manpower.  They have become arbitrary, capricious, arrogant and hopelessly corrupt.  Americans no longer are the master but have reversed the role with government and have become the servant.  To give you a rough idea of government growth, take a look at the following statistics in just the last twenty years.

In 2016, the IRS raised $3.333 Trillion in taxes, spending $11.7 Billion, using 78,000 employees.  The taxes raised in that year equaled $10,288 for every man, woman and child in America.  In contrast, in 1987, (just 20 years before) the taxes raised per person was $3,627, on total taxes of approximately $886.3 Billion.  In just 20 years, taxes to run the government, collected by the IRS, have increased 376 percent.  Taxes per capita have increased 284%.  (Source: IRS)  In the same period the Gross Domestic Product only increased by 100 percent.  Even allowing for inflation, the questions raised by these statistics are numerous.  There can be no doubt.  Government is exploding and the “tax man cometh.”  (This massive increase in spending, in just 20 years, can be laid directly at the feet of the Democrat Party and the financially flawed Progressive ideology that uses the Public Treasury to buy votes to maintain political power.)

To collect all this “dough” from the duped American taxpayers, the IRS just had to get more aggressive.  But the IRS has now gone beyond aggressive and has become arbitrary, capricious, arrogant and corrupt.

The operations of the IRS have spawned thousands of books, essays and articles on just how bad it is and has caused probably hundreds of thousand of court cases since 1913 that have landed thousands of taxpayers in jail and many more unnecessarily paying billions in fines and penalties.  The IRS makes mistakes all the time.  It has been estimated that the IRS sends demand notices, liens and taxes-due errors to at least 10,000,000 taxpayers every single year.

Many books have been written describing why individual Americans don’t owe taxes, in a strict interpretation of the Internal Revenue Code.  If you read their arguments you would tend to believe they are right.  One such author, Pete Hendrickson, wrote a book called “Cracking the Code.”  His method, described in his book, shows how to get back all the money you paid to the IRS.   Apparently, using that method, many so-called non-taxpayers (as Pete calls them) have gotten their money back.  However, Pete’s wife spent 18 months in jail for daring to challenge the IRS.  The story is much more complicated than that, which we won’t go into here, except to say in this case, the IRS used judicial brute force to throw an innocent lady in jail, probably seeking revenge against her husband.

However, many other authors who have told Americans they don’t owe taxes under the code have landed in jail as well.  One Irwin Schiff died in jail for daring to challenge the legality of the tax code as applied to individuals.   Some get away with these legal challenges, others do not.

On the other hand, we have never taken that tack.   It is too dangerous because the IRS is fickle.  It will prosecute some folks, but ignore, or let others go.  The IRS is all-powerful.  Why take the chance?  But that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t challenge them, especially when they are wrong and they are wrong all the time.  We have challenged the IRS numerous times on their errors and have prevailed, except for the following event.

Back in 2013, the IRS started seizing 15% of our Social Security (SS) benefits for an alleged penalty from Calendar-Year 2011.  We challenged the penalty three days after receiving the Notice of the penalty with an Affidavit and followed up with a Notice of Default and Dishonor 30 days later.  We had been successful against the IRS using this method, at least five times before.  In the past, the IRS never responded to our Affidavits, they just issued a NO TAX DUE notice.

But this time, since the C/Y 2011 penalty was significant, the IRS decided to ignore our Affidavit and began seizing the SS benefits.  Before we could again challenge the seizure, we had to wait until the seizure was done.  That took over two and half years.   After the two and one half years past and the total penalty paid, we were required to file a Claim for Refund with the Secretary of the Treasury if we wanted our money back.  We filed one Claim for Refund with the Secretary and then filed a follow-up Claim for Refund two months later.  We never heard from the Secretary of the Treasury about our Claim.  Nevertheless, we still had to wait another six months after filing the claim before we could file suit in U. S. District Court against the IRS to obtain a refund.  These purposely imposed and excessive wait times are designed to inhibit any challenges to the IRS.

So in mid December of 2017, we filed our lawsuit with the U. S. District Court.  A little over a month later we received notice from the court that they were denying the issuance of the summons and dismissed our claim because the court said; “we failed to state a claim for which relief can be granted.”  This is the great cop out by Courts to weed out lawsuits, especially from pro se litigants.

Our legal arguments were based on three court precedents, namely: Group v Finletter, 108 F. Supp. 327, and United States v. Kis, 658 F.2d 526, 536 (7th Cir. 1981) and Morris v National Cash Register, 44 S.W. 2d 433, a very simple one:  TO-WIT: “An un-rebutted affidavit stands as truth in any court or administrative procedure.”

The court either ignored or refused to look at the secondary issue in these cases and denied our argument.  But we weren’t going to lie down and play dead for the court in docile submission.  We filed a Motion in Rebuttal to their denial and dismissal.  You can read our Motion in Rebuttal HERE.  You will find the Motion both educational as well as entertaining.

Now our Motion in Rebuttal probably won’t get the Court to change its mind, but we had a field day in telling the court what they could do with their order.  Upon learning that the specific judge and the Clerk of the Court were negligent in filing the proper paperwork to establish their authority in the past, in the Motion we questioned the judge’s authority and requested, under an FOIA request, that he send us a certified copy of his Oath of Office and Appointment Affidavit, required for every judge.  Sure, we are tickling the tiger’s tail, but we get some perverse pleasure from it.

We might not win THIS battle, but nevertheless we have won five out of six times against the IRS with legal challenges.  We have saved thousands of dollars in taxes by not giving in and questioning every IRS notice we receive.  On the other hand, the IRS has spent thousands of dollars in keeping up with our challenges.

The point we would like to make here is that if people won’t challenge the government, whether it be the IRS or a whole laundry list of alphabet soup federal, state, or local agencies, the people can expect to be used and abused by government.  If you challenge government when they are wrong and you win, you will feel emboldened to challenge them again.  You will feel like you are in control and you are not a slave or a subject of government.  In fact, you may even feel like you are sovereign.  If more people did this, there would be a lot less using and abusing of the people by government.  Sadly, most people would rather capitulate to government than take on Goliath.  There aren’t too many “Davids” in the general population.  But then there never were.

In contrast to the non “Davids”, we are fighters.  As advocates for rural landowners the National Association of Rural Landowners has been fighting government for over 12 year on behalf of American rural landowners, providing advice, tools and other services.  Individually, we have been fighting the government (especially the IRS) whenever they raise their ugly heads and we have been showing others how to do it.  If you don’t fight, you can expect to be run over.  If you like being run over by government, that is your burden to bear.

Most everyone knows that the government, especially the IRS, has become arbitrary, capricious, arrogant and corrupt.  With new revelations coming out every day about FBI and DOJ agents FIXING the Hillary Clinton investigation, the corruption grows ever more apparent.  It will only get worse ….. IF WE DO NOTHING.

You begin your life as “one of the free, sovereign, and independent people of the United States”—- a Virginian, Minnesotan, Texan, etc….

While still a baby in your cradle, “uniformed officers” conscripted into the U.S. Army — who appear to be civilian doctors, improperly seize upon your name and estate and coerce your Mother to sign a False Information to the effect that you are a “US citizen”— the same political status you would have if you were a Puerto Rican, born in Puerto Rico or one of the other Insular Territories, like Guam.

This status as a “Territorial Citizen” obligates you to serve the government and obey its every whim, to be defined as a “taxpayer” and subjected to Selective Service, and to need a license—which is official permission to do something that is otherwise illegal— like getting married or traveling in your car from Point A to Point B. It also subjects you to the foreign British Equity Law and Territorial Court System, which is rigged against you so that British-affiliated Bar Association members can rule against you 97% of the time via the abundant use of their “judicial discretion”.

Throughout your life these vermin misinform you, either deliberately or in ignorance themselves, and tell you that you “have to” have a Social Security Number, you “have to” have a Driver License, you “have to” have a Marriage License, and you obediently do what you are told. Every time you do, you again unwittingly confirm that you are a “US Citizen” and effectively bear False Witness against yourself and against your own interests, just to get along and survive in this ugly horror show world they have created.

Here is the first take home message, campers!  You are NOT a “citizen” of anything.  Citizens serve the government.  Nationals have the government serve them.  So which one are you?  Uh….duh….are you paying them or are they paying you?  And if they are paying you, what is that payment based upon, if not your own hard work and years of paying taxes you never actually owed?

So in effect, you have been kidnapped and trafficked into a United States Territory, and never told about this change in your official political status. You’ve been subjected to the Queen of England and the debts of the British Crown Corporation and if you woke up enough to complain they slammed you into one of their very own rigged courts where they could rape and pillage you and your name and your estate some more.

But how could this be?  How could this happen?  How could nobody know about this?  Well, they never told your Mother, and you were too young to know anything about it when it happened, so why would you have any inkling that this is so?  You couldn’t know.  You couldn’t even complain about it.  And the dirty rotten vermin planned it that way.

So here you are, transported on paper, to Puerto Rico….without a clue and without a paddle to get home, stuck in THEIR foreign political status, subjected to THEIR foreign law, stuck paying THEIR foreign taxes, suffering through THEIR foreign bankruptcies, and living in THEIR “territorial” reality.  And this is all being done to you by what appears to be your government, but it’s not.  It’s THEIR government, which is supposed to be acting under a contract called The Constitution of the United States of America to protect you and your rights…..

So how do they get around their contractual obligation to honor and serve, and instead pillage and plunder?  They just pretend not to know that you are an American from one of the American nation-states.  After all, your Mother said you were a “U.S. Citizen”—- she just didn’t know which “U.S.” they were talking about and wasn’t told, either.  And then you came along like a good little dweeb and signed up for Social Security, and everyone knows—- Title 42 plainly states– that this program is only for federal employees and dependents and political asylum seekers.  Well, then!  You must have sought political asylum, right?  In Puerto Rico, no less.  I hear the climate is nice there.

Who knew?  The Gubmint knew.  The black-hearted, treacherous cheats in Washington, DC—they knew. That’s how they were getting all the gravy. The Joint Chiefs of Staff— they knew.  That’s how they paid for their newest whiz-bang jet fighters and germ warfare programs and everything else.  The Clintons, Billy and Hillary, and Jimmy and Ronnie and both Georges and Mr. Obummer— they all knew.  Everyone on THEIR side of the fence knew and they used to laugh at you poor idiots stumbling around, still thinking that you were living in America.  They called you “sovereign citizens”— a deliberate oxymoron, and thought you were too stupid to ever get the joke.  They called you “livestock” and treated you that way, too.

And if you are NOT mad enough to spit, if you are not angry to the core, if you are NOT ready to get on your feet, then you still aren’t getting the drift of what has been done here.  Go back to the top and read slowly again, remembering that these are people on your payroll doing this to you and your sons and daughters.

But, you say, they are Americans, too.  How could this be?  Surely, they wouldn’t subject themselves to all these things?  They wouldn’t live like slaves at the mercy of their own employees?  Of course, not.  They had to leave themselves an out, didn’t they?  Well, here it is, black and white, the Foreign Sovereigns Immunity Act of 1976.  You, my dears, are all “foreign sovereigns”— from THEIR perspective.  Oh, they admit that you are in fact sovereign.  They can’t avoid that.  They just pretend that you gave it all away and “volunteered” to be treated as a Puerto Rican and a debt slave and whatever else they wanted to say about you—while they privately retained all their own rights and prerogatives as lawful sovereigns on American soil.  You should see Bill Clinton’s claim of copyright to his own name and estate.  He left nothing out.  Not as much as a comma.

So, if you are sovereign on American soil and you are owed the guarantees and protections of The Constitution of the United States of America, how is it that you are still being chased around by THEIR bill collectors?  Thought to be part of THEIR bankruptcy?  Harassed and addressed by THEIR courts?   Well, remember, all this bullshit is military.  Remember the sentry asking for the password?  And if you don’t know the password he can shoot you?  Right?  It’s the same thing. You have to give them MANDATORY NOTICE that you are exempt and immune, a Foreign Sovereign (with respect to them) per the Foreign Sovereigns Immunity Act of 1976.

And then you start taking names and checking dates and you start holding these vermin feet first to the fire.  You start telling them the truth— that they have no right to address you.  You should also form up your lawful County Jural Assemblies and elect your land and soil jurisdiction Sheriffs, set up your Jury Pools, elect your American Common Law Justices of the Peace.  Many of you have been asking— if Hillary broke the law and endangered national security and Obama illegally spied on Donald Trump for political purposes—-why are these crooks still walking around?  It’s because they are claiming to be Foreign Sovereigns on American soil.  These lousy pirates have beat feet back home and sought the protection of the political status they have stolen from others. The only way to bring them to justice is for all of us to wake up and remember who we are.

Now, most Americans are peaceful, even docile, people.  They want to live and let live, mind their own business, work hard and play hard.  Most Americans want and ask nothing much from the government, except to be left alone and maybe some pothole-filling duty. But THEY won’t leave us alone because THEY want to steal from us.  THEY want to continue commandeering our lawful government.  THEY want to call the shots and rule over the rest of us.  THEY have their cozy little fraud machine and their bogus two party political system all set up.  THEY have their “corporate government” and their “corporate military” and THEY would just as soon forget all the old folks back home.

It’s time to jack them up.  Clear to the ceiling.  And all these Bar Association members?  It’s time to tell them where to get off.  Way off.  Who do they think they are?  Who asked for the services of a British Court on American soil?  What country do they think they are in?  Is this really just Greater Puerto Rico?  Or is this about to become America again?  With a big, flat, heavy foot stomped down on the Queen of England and all her busy, little, perfidious minions?

HERE IT IS: MANDATORY NOTICE!!!!  WE ARE AMERICAN FOREIGN SOVEREIGNS RETURNING TO OUR SOIL.  WE NEVER REALLY LEFT IT, SO DEATH AND DAMNATION TO ANYONE WHO CLAIMS OTHERWISE.

Why Equity Law is Evil

01/30/2018

http://www.paulstramer.net/

By Anna Von Reitz

I have been asked, “Why do I attack British Equity Law so vehemently?”

Here’s the short answer— It’s not British and it’s not Equity and it’s not Law.

In the 1750’s a great hue and cry began in England because of the arbitrary and unjust effects of imposing outdated written “one-size fits all” laws without consideration of mitigating circumstances.

For example, the sentence for murder is death.

But what about unintentional, accidental murder?  What we now call “manslaughter”?   And what about murder committed by children by accident?  Or by the mentally incompetent, who couldn’t possibly know what they were doing?  How about murder in self-defense? The young woman being choked by a would-be rapist and thief, who finds a loaded gun and fires?  Or crimes of passion? The betrayed husband who finds his wife in the arms of another man and snaps?

There was a good deal of well-founded discontent with the hoary and Draconian Common Law of England, which had ceased to be determined on a case by case basis as intended, and devolved— especially in large cities, to a reliance on sentences established by the “case law”.  This over-reliance on the pure written law of record in similar cases (and who is to say what is “similar”?) and the gradual replacement of true jury trial by one’s peers to judgment by rule and by whatever jury was summoned (quite often not actual peers of the accused) led to massive controversy about the true nature of justice and the ability of the Common Law to provide it.

Not, I think, coincidental to the times, the BBC is advertising a series called, “Garrow’s Law” which is supposedly based on actual cases tried by William Garrow, a young Barrister who stood on the forefront of this entire movement to bring a more considered and considerate justice into the courts, and the development of a system of law that could see beyond the black and white words on a page clearly stating things like, “the sentence for murder is death by hanging….” (no matter what).

Sounds wonderful, doesn’t it?  A better law…..a more just law….a more considerate law….a more fair law…..

But, unfortunately, just as the pendulum moved in the 1750’s  to create the shades of grey we all now know and agree to be just, such as the provisions for manslaughter and juvenile court, the same forward and redeeming motion carried too far in the other direction, muddying the virtuous and sure, if sometimes dreadful and Puritanical English Common Law with international Admiralty Law, to create British Equity Law.

The primary proponent of this “mocking marriage” of English Common Law with  Admiralty Law was Lord Mansfield, a former Scottish Admiralty Attorney who rose to favor and crafted the basis of British Equity Law in the years immediately before the American Revolution.

The problem with British Equity Law is that is allows the judge to sit in place of the King, which displaces the traditional place and power of the Jury of One’s Peers.

Suddenly, a Barrister is King….  He can use “his discretion” to inflict the harshest sentence available under the written law, or he can soften the sentence as he sees fit, or dismiss the case entirely.  Just like the King of England might.

Of course, this power is entirely seductive to the members of the Bar Association, and, as it turns out, seductive for the King as well: his minions can use their discretion to benefit him and his friends and the ruling class in general, and if by chance they go too far in their toady behavior, he, the King, can emerge as the savior from these abuses, his hands immaculately clean.

So the idealists who sought to create a more perfect justice than the English Common Law provided, wound up creating something that was more varied, more precise, more mutable—more “sophisticated” in the bad sense of that word, but also far more prone to manipulation, abuse, and the currying of favor.

Also, it must be said, that this new Equity Law totally violated another safeguard provided to individual people by the honestly executed Common Law— judgment by one’s own peers.

England then as now is a culture dominated by culture. A man does not have to speak to be known in England.  Who and what he is, his education, his social station is worn like an armband or — famously— a “funny hat”.   So the tradition of trial by jury of one’s peers is a literal reflection of the fact that different strata of society have different standards, different knowledge, and different values.

What is justice to a chimney sweep or a fisherman is not necessarily the same as the justice of a lord—-or, and this is my point entirely—- a barrister.

What one man regards are gross impropriety is commonplace to another.  So those of the same social class and profession and nation are unavoidably the “peers” that can most rightly judge the actions of another of their brethren.

And, ultimately, this tradition of judgment by peers also yields the most accurate judges of the law itself, by testing a law against all social strata, all professions, all religions, all races—- to judge if it is truly fair and right in all their many eyes.

When a jury of one’s true peers is replaced by a judge, the power and purpose of jury nullification is also lost.  The Common Law of England and the Common Law of America both provide(d) for the additional safeguard of jury nullification.  Quite aside from judging the particulars of an individual case, true common law juries can judge the law itself, and if they find it unfair, unreasonable, or unjust— they can throw it out.

The legislature does not rule the people it serves, so long as the people have access to the power of jury nullification.

This safeguard of the Common Law prevents oppressive, insane, arbitrary, or unfair laws from standing on the books and plaguing entire generations of people.

So from the standpoint of preventing abuse of power by judges exercising their “personal discretion” for personal or social gain, and from the standpoint of ensuring that people are judged by their peers and not by someone alien to the realities of their lives, and from the standpoint of truly refining the law itself— the Common Law stands superior in every respect, despite the occasions when Equity Law has provided true equity and justice via the good heart and wisdom of individual judges.

With a clear insight now into the ways and means used by the British Territorial United States of America subsidiary to gain secretive control of American land and labor assets, and to also insinuate British Equity Law on American soil, it is thunderously apparent how “Equity Law” has been used to oppress the people and gild the “kings”—- those in Westminster and in Congress.

If the object of law is justice and order, then Equity Law is the open door to feudalism, class strife, cronyism, and ultimately—though not in every case—- injustice, because by adopting British Equity Law, we adopt coercive power and place it in the hands of one man or woman, operating only according to his or her “discretion” — which ultimately too often means “what I can get away with”.

It also leads to a perverse rewards system, in which those judges who make the most money for the court get the richest pensions and favors, and who are preened and petted for the choicest professional favors.  He who feeds the king—whoever and whatever the “king” may be— gets fed in return, so in such a system, the natural affinities a man might have for justice too often get set aside in favor of his new vacation home, a college education for his grandson, or a new job promotion for his wife.

The justice provided by one man can be bought or sold; it is only a question of — at what price?   Therein lies another potent reason that British Equity Law fails the cause of justice— it’s relatively easy to buy, bully, or kill one man, but the bulwark of a thousand years of Common Law?  That is not so easily swayed!

Also, finally, and this is most telling, too—- without Jury Nullification doing its after-the-fact pruning and proving of the Legislature’s work, laws proliferate like dandelions in spring.

It seems to be a universal plague of nature that men who are elected to the legislature think that it is their business to pass laws for other men to live by, and if at least ten such mandates do not carry their names and approvals each session, they think they aren’t doing their jobs.

I did a random study here in Alaska some years ago and found that the legislature was passing between two and three hundred new laws per year…..3000 new laws, give or take, per decade.

What, ho?  Are we really creating so many brand new point sources of evil and mayhem that it takes 200-300 new laws every year to keep things in order?  And who is going to learn all these new laws?  And who is going to pay for their enforcement?

Without the operation of Jury Nullification operating in the background, these laws just burgeon and accumulate, like a cancer growing in the dark.  This is why at last count, the federal government and its agencies were busy trying to enforce 80 million laws.

Think about it.  Seriously.  Eighty million laws.

This is yet another dangerous and undesirable result of adopting British Equity Law and allowing it to run rampant on our shores.  It denies jury nullification and results in this unbridled growth and proliferation of laws that simply stay on the books and appear to breed ten new volumes every year.

Somebody has to pay for enforcing all those laws, and plainly, it has already reached the point where any attempt at fair, competent, and universal application of such laws is impossible. Nobody has the ability to know and obey 80 million laws, so they are (a) meaningless or (b) arbitrarily and sporadically enforced, which gives rise to more injustice and more police incompetence and other social evils and costs too numerous to contemplate.

I once estimated that if the current Alaska legislature did nothing but review and repeal laws already on the books, it would take them ten years to arrive at a reasonable number of laws that could be provided a reasonable amount of enforcement.  Ten years of legislative sessions, just to clean up the mess that would have been taken care of by jury nullification otherwise?

Prone to corruption and difficult to correct is a recipe for failure no matter what idealistic goals might otherwise be espoused, and all that is quite aside from the fact that the American people are owed the American Common Law.

American Common Law, unlike its British Cousin, didn’t suffer the disadvantages of the British Equity system.  At worst, it was simply elbowed out of the way and left in relative disuse by the quiet, improper proliferation of British courts on our shores.

Wrapping up with my first comment– it’s not British, it’s not Equity, and it’s not Law—

British Equity Law isn’t British in the same way that a mixed breed dog is neither this breed nor that; the English Common Law is what it is, but Admiralty Law comes from the far corners of the Earth, an ancient amalgam that belongs everywhere and nowhere, with roots in the trading practices of Sumeria, Babylon, Egypt, Mycenae, Crete, Africa, India, China…..

It isn’t equitable, either.  What is equitable about men submitting themselves “in trust” to another man who is not impartial, not likely to be their peer, and who has profit motive to sheer them both?

And as for being Law—  Law is based on timeless religious and ethical principles, not the opinions and individual pet peeves and petty concerns of men caught up in the exercise of their own spleens and the commerce of political power.

So, no, it’s not British.  It’s not Equity.  And it most certainly is not Law.

AMERICA: SOME ASSEMBLY REQUIRED

01/29/2018

By Anna Von Reitz

This little monograph was prepared for President Donald J. Trump, and strictly speaking, it is addressed to him. It’s set up in one-page, 30- seconds each page, sound-bite format, so that a busy Executive can quickly read each bit and build up the whole picture like a puzzle.

That being said, it’s not only information needed by Mr. Trump….

The really important points I repeat several times in slightly different ways. Forgive that bit of tedium and be grateful for it.

I have made no effort beyond a cursory naming and dating to give reference citations, except for a few relatively new or unknown cites that don’t appear elsewhere in my writings. All the proof needed is already well-established in the public record and anyone can find it, just as I did, by looking for it.

My dog is senile. He has taken to wandering around aimlessly from room to room, pausing, and giving a single “Woof!” It seems to express all the questions in the world: “Where am I?” “How did I get here?” “Have I been fed yet?”  “Why did I come here?”  “What was I doing— or meaning to do?”

These are the sort of questions this monograph addresses, providing a logical framework showing how our government is supposed to be structured, how it is in fact structured, how it came to be this way, and

—-in a very prosaic way, what needs to be done to fix it.

For most of you who missed Eighth Grade American History, this will be all brand new. For some of you, it will stir vague remembrances. For almost everyone it will be our history as seen from a new viewpoint— that of a businessman looking at the business entities and relationships that have formed the federal government in America.

The Supreme Republican Declaration of the United Colonies of America (1775) declares the republican nature of the colonies and claims right of self-defense for each colony (farm family assembly).

The colonies claimed their air (global), soil and land (national), and sea (international) jurisdictions by natural right in the same way that individual people have the right to self-defense.

The Unanimous Declaration of These United American Colonies published July 4, 1776 declares the nation-states (people plus soil within prescribed boundaries). Each former colony issues its own non- enumerated declaration defining Georgia, Virginia, Maine, etc.

The new nation-states combined forces to fight the Revolutionary War and chose a name: “The United States of America” for their unincorporated union on September 9, 1776.

The United States of America (unincorporated) is fully sovereign; it functions as a Holding Company for the nation-states. The new states had plenary jurisdiction over the soil and via The United States of America, claim to their international and global jurisdictions, too.

Take home messages: (1) our republican nation-states are formed by declarations not by constitutions; (2) The United States of America (unincorporated) is the first and last union formed by our nation- states. (3) The United States of America is the Proper Name of our country in international terms and exercises the sovereign (that is, unincorporated) power of the nation-states. All power flows from the people to the counties to the nation-states to The United States of America (unincorporated) and thence to federal subsidiaries.

The United States of America (unincorporated) subcontracted with several subsidiary organizations to provide specific government services: the States of America (international land jurisdiction); (2) the United States of America (international sea jurisdiction); and (3) the United States (air jurisdiction).

The Constitution for the united States of America resulting from the Treaty of Paris 1778 (Spanish King) is the Original Equity Contract and National Constitution. This governs the delegated international land jurisdiction giving rise to the United States National Government.

The Constitution of the United States of America resulting from the Treaty of Paris 1783 (British King) is the original Territorial Constitution. This governs the delegated international sea jurisdiction giving rise to the Territorial United States Government.

“The Constitution of the United States” resulting from the Jay Treaty is the original Municipal Constitution. This governs delegated global air jurisdiction giving rise to the Municipal United States Government.

Take home messages: (1) the National Government, Territorial Government, and Municipal Government all function in international jurisdictions — land, sea, and air, respectively, and they all function as subsidiaries and subcontractors of The United States of America operating under delegated powers explicitly enumerated in each of their constitutions. (2) It is already easy to see how “United States” became a catch-all term and why it is necessary to define which “United States” and which “United States Government” and which “United States of America” we are talking about at any given time.

By 1791 all (3) three levels of federal government are present in addition to the nation-states governments: National (international land), Territorial (international sea), and Municipal (global air).

The Constitution for the united States of America creates the National Government which then defines the Territorial Government and the Municipal Government (Article I, Section 8, Clause 17).

There is a separate doing-business-name for each federal subsidiary: States of America (land), United States of America (sea), and the United States (air).

There are also four (4) styles of government present: the nation-states have a republican style government, the States are republics, the territories have a democracy, and the municipal government is a plenary oligarchy.

The States of America was an American organization administering our international land jurisdiction. The British-dominated United States of America and the Holy See’s United States organizations were limited to territorial and municipal functions.

Take home messages: (1) all three layers of federal government National, Territorial, and Municipal— are under contract to perform according to their respective constitutions. (2) All three function in either international or global jurisdiction(s) that are foreign with respect to the actual nation-states of this country. (3) The nation- states hold the soil jurisdiction of each state which underlies the land jurisdiction of the country as a whole. (4) The United States of America holds all international and global powers in trust for the nation-states, either to delegate under contract or to reserve as non-delegated powers. It is our National Trust.

All the powers that a government can have are limited to spheres of activity known as jurisdictions. These are described in terms of the location where they operate: soil, land, sea, air. Most recently, the domain of space has been added.

When we speak of “law of the land” we are talking about the law that applies to the land jurisdiction held by a national government, which is different than the law of the sea which is international in nature, or law of the air which is municipal and global.         Jurisdictions can overlap like layers of a cake and the same subject matter can be claimed by more than one jurisdiction, however, he/she/it must be operating in a recognizable capacity within that jurisdiction.

For example: Some American nationals go to work for the British Territorial United States (a federal subsidiary) and are required to adopt Dual Citizenship while employed as a federal civilian or military employee. Acting as Americans they are subject to the Law of the Land. Acting as Federal citizens they are subject to the Law of the Sea.

You can see how certain parties might have an interest in dragging you from one jurisdiction to another, in order to obligate and subject you to their laws (and taxes) instead of your own.

Take home messages: (1) you have to know who you are and in what capacity you are acting. (2) The federal subsidiaries have reasons for wanting you to act as a citizen and become subject to their laws. (3) Most of us are not federal citizens and need to defend against such cross-jurisdictional claims by declaring permanent domicile on the land and soil of our birth nation-state and recording it in the public record so that nobody can just presume that we are acting in the capacity of a federal citizen and voluntarily subjecting ourselves to their foreign jurisdictions, obligations, and laws.

When we talk about our relationship with our federal government service providers we talk in terms of service contracts known as constitutions and in terms of delegated and non-delegated powers.

The various constitutions, national, territorial, and municipal, set aside certain specific powers — all in international or global jurisdictions, to be exercised by our federal subsidiaries doing business as States of America, United States of America, and United States.

There are nineteen and only nineteen enumerated and delegated powers that these federal subsidiaries are hired to exercise for us. The 19th of these powers is the obligation stated in the Preamble of each constitution to honor and protect our rights.

Rights are material possessions. They include copyrights and patents

as well as rights we exercise daily, such as the right of free speech.

Some powers are explicitly delegated to the federal service providers to exercise in our behalf, and other non-delegated powers are reserved by the nation-states and the people.  See Amendment X.

Take home messages: (1) federal power is strictly limited. (2) The federal subsidiaries have only nineteen specific jobs to do. (3) If a power is not delegated in writing, it is reserved. (4) The nation-states and people reserve the right to reform, redefine, or restructure their government, including the federal government, at any time. (5) The living people have reserved all their natural rights whether those rights are enumerated in the Bill of Rights or not.

The United States of America delegates specific functions and powers to the subsidiary organizations doing business as States of America, United States of America, and United States. The United States of America (unincorporated) reserves all powers in international and global jurisdictions which are not explicitly delegated in writing.

As The United States of America (unincorporated) is the “sovereign instrumentality” of the actual states and people of this country, it is the Holder of all the delegated international and global powers owed to the nation-states and the people, who are the Holders in Due Course of all such powers in all jurisdictions.

Take home messages: (1) The United States of America is able to directly exercise the rights of the states and the people that are not delegated to the subsidiaries. (2) The union of nation-states doing business as The United States of America is able to enforce all three constitutions:

(a)  The Constitution for the united States of America (delegated land)

  • The Constitution of the United States of America (delegated sea),
  • The Constitution of the United States (delegated air).

(3) If the delegated duties are not being performed they revert back to The United States of America. (4) If a federal subsidiary fails, its duties and delegated powers return to The United States of America, not some other business entity. (5) The exercise of delegated powers has to be assigned in writing: any change in services or service providers has to be memorialized via an Amendment to the existing constitution or ratification of a new constitution by the nation-states. (6) A constitution is a debt agreement in which one party provides services and another party agrees to pay for them.

The colonies were by definition agricultural communities. The people living in the colonies were tenants of the King living on his soil. They were obligated to pay taxes, tithes, fees, and rents for the privilege of working the soil as sharecroppers for the King.

(E)states are the next step up from colonial status; small estates can be owned by Freedmen as freeholds. Larger estates are owned by a landlord under an allodial title or land patent granted by a King.

Tenants, freemen, and landlords in a feudal system are all subjects of a King, and all are acting in a care-taking or grantee capacity with respect to the soil and its hereditaments. Wastelands were also granted as commonwealth assets belonging to a joint tenancy of paupers.

The Monarch holds the land and soil under Sovereign Letters Patent.

Our nation-states were created by people acting as Independent Sovereigns — meaning that they recognized no King, paid no rents, and possessed the soil as kings in their own right.                                                                                                     They don’t owe it to anyone and are not indebted to anyone for its use.

Take home message: (1) Americans were doing something unusual by standing independent of the King. (2) Tenants (also known as residents), freedmen, and landlords, are all citizens and are all subjects of a King. (3) Commonwealths are granted to paupers who are both subjects and dependents of a King. (4) Under monarchy as under communism, the King acting as the State owns everything; private property doesn’t really exist. (5) Independent sovereigns possess the soil jurisdiction and hold their country in common as joint sovereigns but there is only one other time when this happened: after the death of William the Conqueror in 1087 A.D.

Soil is not the same as land. Soil is the physical dirt, rocks, and sand belonging to a place as part of its natural heritage; land is the description of soil in terms of political subdivisions. Soil is mapped in terms of its topography. Land is mapped in terms of political affiliation.

We will use Georgia of an example: Georgia is one of the nation-states that created The United States of America (unincorporated). Georgia is made of soil and it is populated by living people.

The original Georgia State was called the State of Georgia; it was organized under The Articles of Confederation (1781) and operated under The Constitution for the united States of America. “Georgia State” today operates under a Statehood Compact and is a land trust holding the international land jurisdiction owed to Georgia.

The soil (state republic jurisdiction) of Georgia belongs to the Georgians; the land (international land jurisdiction) is kept in trust by the Georgia State. This jurisdiction includes post offices and public lands. Georgia is a matrilineal republican nation-state, while Georgia State is a patrilineal republic.

Take home messages: (1) Georgia = The United States of America member state, created by declaration, defined as the physical estate and living people within Georgia’s geographic boundaries. (2) Georgia State = now is a foreign franchise organization created by Statehood Compact, controls international land jurisdiction in Georgia and is a Federal District State. (3) Georgia is a physical state complete with alligators and swamps. (4) Georgia State is a political fiction defined as a land trust, run as a lawful business entity that substitutes itself for the original State of Georgia that was operated under The Articles of Confederation (1781).

So, we have the two states, Georgia, holding the nation-state jurisdiction of the actual soil, and we have the Georgia State holding the international jurisdiction of the land.

Georgia is the only sovereign state present. Georgia State is at this time exercising Georgia’s international land jurisdiction without a constitutional delegation of power to do so. The United States of America established a contract with the States of America and the original State of Georgia under the The Constitution for the united States of America.

Red Flag: According to our contracts, States of America is supposed to be operating our National Government—- but isn’t.

Today’s State of Georgia is a territorial franchise of the British Territorial United States of America subsidiary operating under The Constitution of the United States of America.

STATE OF GEORGIA is a municipal franchise of the United States, originally a subsidiary run by the Holy Roman Empire operating under The Constitution of the United States.

Take home messages: (1) Georgia State, State of Georgia, and STATE OF GEORGIA are all federal states operated by federal subsidiaries under contract to The United States of America (unincorporated). (2) The federal states all operate in fictional business and political realms that are foreign with respect to the nation-states. (3) The union of nation-states doing business as The United States of America is fundamentally different in nature from the subsidiary unions of federal states and state-of-state franchises. (4) An unauthorized assumption of delegated power took place when the Georgia State usurped the duties of the original State of Georgia.

Nation-states are operated by County Jural Assemblies, which are composed of people of the land coming together in public meetings, setting up their jury pools, electing their public sheriffs, their justices of the peace, their clerks, their bailiffs, and their coroners in each county. These County Jural Assemblies send their elected deputies to State Conventions to conduct the business of the nation-state. They elect Deputies to serve in the Continental Congress, when one is called to Assemble. The courts created by County Jural Assemblies are administered by Justices of the Peace, and operate under American Common Law established by Juries.

The Federal States, like Georgia State, are formed by County Jural Societies which are composed of civilian non-citizen United States Nationals.      They follow the same basic process, except that the courts they create are administered by County Judges and operate under General Session Law. They elect State Representatives to represent them in the State Legislature and send Delegates to the United States Congress. Members are called constituents.

Take home messages: (1) the soil jurisdiction courts and counties are created by County Jural Assemblies. (2) The land jurisdiction courts and counties are created by County Jural Societies. (3) Assembly Courts act under Public Law, Society Courts act under Private Law. (4) Both the County Jural Assemblies and the County Jural Societies are owed The Law of Peace, United States Department of the Army Pamphlet 1-161-1. (5) None of the living people born in this country are naturally subject to Territorial or Municipal laws and become subject to these foreign federal law systems only by election. (6) Most of us have been elected without our knowledge or consent to act in the capacity of federal citizens.

States of States today are corporate franchises of the British Territorial United States subsidiary presently doing business as the USA, Inc. Their Territorial Courts are formed by appointing or electing Judges from the ranks of the local Bar Associations to serve their State of State Courts and their United States (Military) District Courts which are organized by State of State Attorney Generals and United States Attorneys.

The States of States like the State of Georgia today operate under state franchise constitutions, such as The State of Georgia Constitution, all in compliance with the Territorial contractThe Constitution of the United States of America.

People become members of the State of State Jury Pool by Registering to Vote. This act of Registering to Vote means that you are acting as a British Territorial United States Citizen and are voluntarily subjecting yourself to British Equity Law and Territorial United States Courts, which are foreign international court venues that are only supposed to be serving the needs of federal employees, federal dependents and political asylum seekers, who are living here as temporary residents.

Take home messages: (1) unless you were born in an actual federal territory like Guam, are working as a federal civilian or military employee or are a federal dependent or actually seeking federal political asylum, you have no business Registering to Vote–as spelled out in the 14th Amendment of their Constitution. (2) Residents of the federal State of States are not eligible to own soil in this country and if they aspire to own land, they must first pay off a huge mortgage which the British Territorial United States subsidiary owes. (3) British Equity Law allows the judges in Territorial Courts to use discretionary powers to disregard written law, which in turn leads to petty despotism and abuses of power.

The STATE OF STATES are also foreign with respect to us, and operate under foreign Municipal Law.                                                           These entities like the STATE OF GEORGIA are franchises of the Municipal United States. The Municipal United States Government is limited to operate within the 10 square miles of the District of Columbia— so how is it that we have STATE OF STATE organizations everywhere? Answer: They are acting as appointees of the British Territorial United States subsidiary under the 1951 Appointments Act.

The system of federal racketeering they run is called a Split-Title Scheme in which the British Territorial United States of America subsidiary creates and attaches a copyrighted label known as a title to American assets, then splits the title, keeping the beneficial title, and handing off the legal title to Municipal subcontractors to enforce. The British subsidiary dodges its treaty and trust responsibilities by getting the Municipal subsidiary to do the asset seizures for it.

By 1965, bribes began in the form of Federal Revenue Sharing and Federal Block Grants to County level governments. To receive all this free money the counties had to incorporate as franchises of the British Territorial United States of America subsidiary.

Take home messages: (1) Americans still believe that State of State and National Elections are Public Elections when in fact, these are Private Corporate Elections. (2) As volunteer franchises the victims are liable for all debts of the British Territorial United States of America subsidiary. (3) Just as Territorial States of States function as franchises of the British Territorial United States of America, so do incorporated counties. They are all foreign with respect to us and unknowingly subscribed to be part of this foreign conglomerate when they signed on to receive federal kickbacks.

Olddogs Comments!

You have just read 15 pages of a 60 page document that I converted from PDF to MS Word which may or may not make Anna very unhappy because she has struggled for years with the expenses involved in saving America by informing Americans of the tyranny they have encountered their entire life without once deciding to do something about it.

So, I have made this available as a teaser to the people so they will buy the book!

As I comprehend this travesty we have accepted all our lives it makes me feel like a fool, and that is why I have been increasing exposure to her work.

The excuse of having too many responsibilities and not enough time to read is no longer acceptable if you want to be a free human being.

If anyone reads this that really cannot afford to buy this book, they can contact me at olddog@anationbeguiled.com and I will buy one for you and have it shipped to your address.

America: Some Assembly Required should be on sale soon and should be very affordable.  I will report back as soon as my publisher has it up and rolling. Anna Von Reitz

NOTICE:I have posted this article before but it is of such importance that I intend to re-post it a few times more. The average American who instinctively knows that something is wrong must reread this post several times until the sheer depravity of our government sinks in and they resolve to become involved.

By Anna Von Reitz

For Those Incapable of Connecting the Dots …..We are being “occupied” by our own Army.

The Army we pay for. The Army that we allow our sons and daughters to serve in. The Army that is strictly charged with preserving our freedoms, protecting our money, and supervising the activities of the Bar Association on our shores.

That Army.

How, you might ask, is this possible? It’s possible because the so-called “American Civil War” wasn’t a war. It was and is an illegal commercial mercenary conflict on our shores. It was never actually declared by any Congress. It was never officially ended by any Peace Treaty.

In 1863, during the so-called war, Lincoln bankrupted the original United States (Trading Company) and placed the responsibility for preserving the Union and fulfilling the contractual mandates of the actual Constitution on the Grand Army of the Republic — and the Union Generals.

With respect to the Territorial United States, they have carried on in that role ever since, and grossly expanded upon it. The rules that Lincoln gave them, The Lieber Code, has morphed into The Hague Conventions. The Grand Army of the Republic, also known as the Union Army, has morphed into the US ARMY, the United States Army, and many other permutations. But nothing ever got resolved.

President Andrew Johnson who was Lincoln’s Successor Vice-President declared “peace on the land” in three very public declarations, establishing a public contract. As a result, the people owed the land jurisdiction were recognized as peaceful non-combatants and innocent Third Parties who are all owed The Law of Peace.

Instead of honoring that, successive generations of generals and members of Congress have colluded together to define all of us as “Enemy combatants” and they have directed the falsification of the public records to that end.

Beginning with alteration of Title 37 of the old Federal Code to conscript doctors and dentists and other “uniformed officers” into the Army, and then with the original “Maternity Act” and Sheppard Townsend Act they conspired to register American babies as they were born.

Registration gives up our ownership interest in our own names and estates to the “State of ____________” as our “presumed beneficiary”. So the “State of Wisconsin” organization, for example, would be the presumed beneficiary of my name and estate and would receive the “beneficial title” to the trust ACCOUNT established in my NAME, while the “STATE OF WISCONSIN” organization would receive the “legal title” and be enabled to administer my ESTATE for the benefit of the “State of Wisconsin”.

And as for me, I would get nothing out of the deal whatsoever, except for an “indemnity receipt” from whichever federal corporation seized title to my name and estate, guaranteeing as my “presumed usufruct” that no harm would come to me or my estate as a result of their use of my assets.

This vicious swindle was in effect a species of genocide on paper, unlawfully converting the public records and political status of American state nationals to that of “federal citizens” merely “residing” here temporarily while performing our “presumed” duty to provide “essential government services”.

It also allowed them to subject us to their corporate tribunals being run in lieu of the American Common Law courts we are owed, under the false presumption that we were all federal employees or dependents or political asylum seekers.

They’ve gotten away with this crap for so long that they actually believe their own lies. And all these presumptions which were made about you without your knowledge or consent have not been rebutted because you have been kept in the dark and never told of their existence.

For six generations.

How do you rebut a lie if you don’t know it exists?

But now the game is up, and the Army is looking at the Navy and the Navy is looking at the Army and the Marines are looking at every other branch of service and the Air Force is going, “OMG!” and the plain fact of the matter is that both the Congress and the Armed Forces have been acting in treason against us, their actual employers, and against our Constitution.

These two groups of employees have been attacking us under color of law, under deliberately contrived and known false pretenses, and all behind our backs.

The sheer size and scope of the crime is breath-taking. The complexity and duration of the fraud beyond any simple imagining. And the cost to the American states and people is in the quadrillions of dollars defined as ounces of silver.

It should come as no surprise, then, that our entire “National Credit” — the flip-side of their “National Debt” — has been embezzled from the coffers of the Department of Defense.

How is all this fraud possible? In a debt-credit system, debts are supposed to immediately cancel out via the receipt of equal credit, but the answer is— it’s because they never credited us.

To put it bluntly, the “occupying Army” was double-dipping the whole time, siphoning off the credit owed to us and leaving the debts unpaid, so that they could come in and pretend that they were bankrupt because of our bad behavior and insolvency, and give themselves an excuse to sell off our assets to satisfy their debts as they have done already twice before in 1907 and 1933.

They were using their own cleverly disguised territorial court tribunals to collect on all these supposed debts— which we never owed. Ever.

Why do I say that? Because the debts were racked up by the Municipal United States — which was serving itself, not us—and the debts were being collected by the Territorial United States — which was serving itself, not us.

Remember? We were cut totally out of the picture at birth.

None of this is our debt and none of this criminality is our doing. It’s entirely a federal matter that has nothing to do with us.

Please bear in mind that we are not alone, because the same infectious disease has eaten away at the foundations of lawful government in virtually every country on Earth. The same venal “system” of “federal districts” overlaying the land jurisdiction of every country has imposed the same form of de facto slavery on people from Japan to Belize, from Queensland to Point Barrow, from Manchuria to Moscow and from Moscow to Denmark.

This crime syndicate which has used our country as its home base for 150 years has now moved on to China, where it proposes to set up shop and use its ill-gotten gains to dominate the rest of the world forever.

And what do you all say to that?

Is it time to kick some Generals where it hurts?

Force some actual useless eaters to perform their Oaths and duties?

Tell the Lord Mayor of London exactly where to shove it and how far?

Escort the Popes out of Vatican City to hear the roar?

Bury Buckingham Palace under the enormous pile of manure that they have bequeathed as their legacy to the rest of the world?

How about giving all these bankers new jobs cleaning public toilets?

They can share rooms with members of Congress and the Joint Chiefs of Staff and attend my lectures every morning.

The Mad Are In Charge Of The Swamp

There is a series on Netflix titled GOTHAM, a fictional city that is so corrupted that it flounders in chaos and fear of violence.  The City of Chicago, where murders have become routine, totaling in thousands; other crimes are  equally routine; MS13 Gangs control whole territories throughout the City’s East side; prostitution is rampant; the police are ineffective based on the fear of entering entire areas within the city;  corrupt politicians slide from one administration to another, stemming back a hundred years.  The City of Chicago is bankrupt.  Ward healers amass great wealth by heading political election campaigns using payoffs, arm-twisting and other forms of intimidation that insures that the mobs’ candidates always survive.  Harry Truman was a ward healer before he became president.

GOTHAM is really Chicago, but the corruption has spread to “Sodom” by the Sea in San Francesco, and Hollywood, California.  There are many pockets throughout our country where illegal people have, through the Obama Administration’s blessing, violated Constitutional law and paid government trucking contractors, with taxpayer funding to redistribute illegals far from our boarders in order to settle in villages and towns throughout our nation. The purpose was to transform the population by mongrelizing the citizenry, blending the brown yellow and black races from Africa, China and other foreign locations to create a metamorphic conversion from western ideals into a caliphate or better yet a communist society devoid of qualifications for entry. Most immigrants do not speak, read or write English; most arrive to obtain a better life at the expense of legal citizens and will work for low wages compared to legal citizens.

THE WEAKENING OF THE DEVELOPMENT OF WESTERN LAWS AND WESTERN CIVILIZATION

The traditions, laws and inheritance of Western culture evolved over 802 years and resulted in enormous achievements in science, medicine, literature, poetry and philosophy when, in 1215 A.D., the  Magna Carta set the standards of law we enjoy today; but now, unhappily, we experience a process of decay of  standards ie; morals, religious and loyalty to our flag.  What once was a nation  based on the brilliance of our forefather’s  written Constitution and laws to enforce the bill of rights the system of justice is now slowly being corrupted.

President Obama encouraged millions of illegal aliens to overwhelm our immigration system complicit with Democrat Party support that applauded restricting, even preventing boarder control guards from doing their jobs.

He used every means to spread his propaganda by lecturing and ranting on TV, and other media, before the public assemblies lauding the rights of aliens to enter this country.  He publically condemned the police, labeling them guilty before they were tried by jury; he promoted racism between whites and minorities and helped racist mayors restrict police interference during riots; he praised Islam as peaceful and friendly despite the fact that Islam once controlled, through invasion, all of Spain and the entire Mediterranean to force captives into enslavement and execution all who refused to follow the teachings of Mohammad. The defeat of the Muslim control left remnants behind until those bloody purges during the reign of Ferdinand and Isabella.

Obama recited in Arabic the verses of the Quran and bowed before the Saudi King of Arabia (demonstrating obeisance) while on an official government visit,  what no other president would dare to do… acknowledge superiority of a foreign Muslim potentate.

His blatant “chutzpah” openly abused the privileges of his office by taking with him an entourage that included friends and family members to exotic locations throughout the world, claiming the trips as necessary, legally urgent and obligatory to conduct meetings and conferences.  He even allowed his wife to use the government backup intercontinental aircraft with the affixed presidential seal to travel to separate destinations accompanied by her own entourage of friends and relatives to enjoy luxurious accommodations at taxpayer expense, she stated the trips to be necessary for creating social comity within foreign countries.   In other words she was acting in the capacity of an ambassador. The cost to the U.S. taxpayers was staggering … amounting to millions of dollars per trip.  Added to these costs is the expense of additional aircraft to haul support vehicles, security personnel and the most expensive accommodations within each country visited.

Obama’s legacy, during his eight years in office, was to bring the United States to its knees by creation of debt so enormous that Americas’ currency, the dollar, which was the most respected, universal vehicle of exchange, to lose its status as the world’s medium for currency conversions. Obama, flooded our country, with non-vetted aliens, including devotees of ISIS, a murderous organization with a purpose to install a world-wide 12thcentury caliphate based on terrorism.   He created chain migration whereby whole families could join those who held green cards or became temp citizens with a job.  Almost immediately, these relatives receive benefits because most have no needed low skills and are unneeded by industry.  Those temporary Immigrants who are allowed to work have sent millions of dollars to wherever their families and relatives are located.

Obama ignored the problem and the loss of millions of dollars every month to be spent in foreign countries. So did the media and the entire Democrat Party who voted in lockstep to promote the most radical social welfare laws, such as the Medical Care ACT for the welfare state.  Forty percent of our nation’s citizens and noncitizens alike pay no taxes and received free Medicaid benefits.  The majority of Obama and the Democrat’s Party’s  immigration open door policy provides no incentive for the unemployed to exchange the benefits gained by being employed because the gains in the  welfare provided,  exceeds what they could not earn by working.  As stated previously, the majority of immigrants lack the higher paying skills for the jobs that employers require.

One other outrage by Obama was the agreement he made with the Iranian government regarding limiting nuclear development, where only UN mentorship of Iranian sites where nuclear operations and storage are stipulated Iran’s government, excluding all other suspected areas where nuclear development takes place.

Barrack Obama, arranged the transfer of $100,000,000 dollars in cash to be delivered by aircraft to Iran outside of the original agreement, purportedly responding to the Mullah’s later demand for the release of Iran’s funds that were frozen since the overthrow of the Shaw which was subsequently declared illegal by the World Court which does not impede or have authority within the United States jurisdictional authority.  It violates our nation’s sovereignty.

Class warfare

Obama and the majority within the Democrat Party vilify the very wealthy who create jobs, hire workers and pay salaries. The left adopted the philosophy of Marx and Engle’s. Manufacturers who were competing while located in the United States no longer could afford paying taxes, high wages, pensions and medical care and compete with foreign nations who import products to the United States, tariff free.  Either our manufacturers move their plants where taxation, fees and subsidies make it much easier to compete on the world stage or simply fail to exist if there are no comparative tax benefits that are provided by other countries.  Detroit, the hub of auto manufacturing, turned into a ghost town as did so many other major cities throughout the Middle and Eastern United States. Cotton mills and fabric manufacture left our country to China’s economy as did so many other industries.

The reason why our nation declined is not the Obama administration alone, but all the administrations beginning with Teddy Roosevelt coupling with Woodrow Wilson’s international central bankers and international corporate self-serving opportunists. Prior U.S. administrations now inherit the morals and conflicts of Europe and now as a member within the United Nations that opposes 90% of our nation’s interests.

What has changed is exemplified by the transfiguration of our youth and the freedoms bequeathed on them. Their present heritage goes back to the Age of Aquarius 1960.

THE SINS OF THE FATHER

The sins of father’s who attended the massive gatherings where free love, pot and other mind-bending demonstrations against conventional morals and practice of the past were passed on to their children and the left’s political candidates, namely Government leaders.   Blood sweat and tears of our military pay the price because of the misuse of the present Marxists or even worse the Communists who now are the many citizens of American heritage.

This is not unique, since the sins of Adam and Eve were inherited by their sons, Cain and Able as quoted in the first chapter of Genesis of the Bible.  Cain killed his brother Able and that created a first in the sorry history of good vs evil and is perpetuated through all generations.  One fact, that any thinking person must accept, is that it is too easy to take the wider road, the road that appeals to our bad side. The side where sex, gluttony, sloth, anger, misdeeds which are the antithesis of the commandments given by God to Moses on Mount Sinai.  When governments become so immune to feelings of guilt there are no limits. Crimes of murder, the killing of millions through development of weapons: poison gas that fries skin and inflames lungs and disfigures survivors.  Bombs spray deadly metal particles; missiles capable of flattening entire cities to rubble. Every form of weaponry is impervious to the pain and desolation that causes disfigurement tearing off limbs of both civilians and soldiers alike. War is heartless … pure evil. The arms manufactures sell weapons and ammunition for enormous profits, a prime reason that motivates wars.  Today, the rules of war no longer exist.  Our war making machine is now at its apex dedicated toward total annihilation of enemies.  Are our babies’ enemies in arms?  Is the enemy, the elderly or the very young who never wished for war, or is it the Luciferian leadership that forces death on enemies to justify annihilation?

I fear the condemnation by those who fall victim of propaganda that benignly molds minds to conclude that nuclear annihilation is not a proper solution.  Fools fail to foresee that using the nuclear solution as the only solution means more than likely the enemy will retaliate in kind. Mankind needs Divine Guidance.

Urgent Public Message for President Trump from Judge Anna

01/26/2018

By Anna Von Reitz

Everyone— pay attention.

Last year on January 20, 2017, President Trump took his Oath of Office.

An Office in the Territorial Government is a Public Trust.

Trusts do not become law for a year and a day.

His Office, his Trust, would have become law on January 21st of this year— but that didn’t happen, because Chuck Schummer contrived to shut down the government for three days at precisely the critical time.

This is called “breaking the continuity of the evidence”.

As a result, nothing that President Trump did during his entire first year in Office, all the laws and Executive Orders and Directives he signed—- technically didn’t cure.

Now, either he did this to himself because he wanted to void out mistakes made during the first year of His Presidency, or, far more likely, the Dems saw their opportunity to “win” by technicality and are scheming to invalidate everything he has done and everything he will do this next year and after—-just by sitting back and not telling him that his Office never cured.

These are very devious, very skillful, very evil men he is dealing with, people who have been trained in the black arts and ecclesiastical law.  He truly is contesting with Evil in High Places, so it is important that the “Good Witches” and “White Hats” surround him and educate and warn him and protect him, just as I am doing by writing this memo today.

To counteract this, he has to re-take his Oath of Office, re-do the things he wants to stick— re-sign legislation, re-issue Executive Orders, etc.—and begin the whole timeline over again, being sure that his Office cures and is not interrupted by any more chicanery for a year and a day.

Thereafter, his work will stand and his term will run and there won’t be anything that anyone can say or do against it.

And now you all know why Democrat Chuck Schummer appeared to shut down the government for three days “for no reason”.
