07 31 18 Self-Governing


By Anna Von Reitz

When I was about fifteen and full of beans and would do something a bit rash or get above myself in making comments to adults, my Mother would wag her head and say, “If you don’t govern yourself, someone else will have to do it for you!  And it will be at your cost!”

What she meant by this was not totally, crystal clear to me at the time, but it has become one of those nagging mantras that expands and clarifies its meaning over the rough road of experience and time.

Like all great truths, it’s deceptively simple.  We have to self-discipline ourselves and choose what is right, or we run the risk of having other parties and powers come into our lives to do the job we have avoided doing for ourselves.

For me as a young girl, it had more to do with minding my tongue and being patient.

For many people, failing to self-govern means landing in jail.

For a nation, it is the fundamental requirement of existence.

And for a 150 years, America has not been fully self-governing.

We have faithfully explained and proven step-by-step exactly how the “Federal” part of our Federal Government was usurped in breach of trust by the British-backed Territorial United States, and how as a consequence our Delegated Powers have been exercised  by Britain despite the Revolution, the War of 1812, the outcomes of the Civil War, the Treaty of Peace, Paris, 1783, The Constitution for the united States of America, The Constitution of the United States of America, and The Constitution of the United States—–and every rule of law and trust and decency.

Pure and simple, our States were supposed to operate the Federal States of States.  We were supposed to control our monetary policies, our trade policies, our treaties, our war-making, our patent process, our copyrights and everything else that a nation is responsible for self-determining, but we were lulled into a baby-like trusting dependency and ignorance by the perpetrators benefiting themselves at our expense.

We mistook them for us.  We let them take over and dominate our foreign policy and use our young people for gun fodder in their wars for profit for a hundred and fifty years.  We let them rob and control our natural resources, stifle our industries, take over our schools, and sell us down the drain in trade deals beneficial to their interests.  We let them copyright our names and create franchises named after us.  We let them control our patent office.

We failed to self-govern.

Amazingly, even after years of discussion about all these topics, I am still having to explain to people that what they assumed was their government, is not.

Even more difficult, I have to explain the necessity of getting off their duffs and providing themselves with the government they are owed.


“That thing in your courthouse isn’t your government.  It’s a British-backed colonial outpost.  You have to get organized and restore your own government, and then, you can peaceably oust them.  Not until.”


“Those aren’t your courts.  They aren’t operating under the American Common Law.  They aren’t obeying the Constitution, because they are arbitrarily identifying you as a Territorial Citizen and Territorial Citizens have never been owed any constitutional guarantees.”

“Wha-wha-what’s that you are saying?”

“Am I not speaking plain English?  We’ve been taken over by a bunch of British-backed con men. What you think of as your government isn’t your government. You have to pick yourselves up and get busy, get organized to restore the government you are owed, and self-govern.  If you don’t self-govern, some other power will come in here and do it for you —-at your cost!”

At the cost of your children’s lives.  At the cost of your homes and businesses.  At the cost of your peace and security.  At the cost of your intelligence and spirit.  At the cost of your health.  They will be glad to govern you.

Even now there are various European-backed efforts ongoing trying to take over our government functions by a process of assumpsit.  The only thing preventing them is our discernment of who they are and what they are doing and our polite refusal to accept a contract with them.  We’ve got the Scottish version (again) doing business as THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, LTD.  And we’ve got the French version, The Republic for the United States of America.

What’s missing is the actual, factual American Government.  Wake up!  Halloooo!  We have to finish the “Reconstruction” that has been left hanging since the Civil War!

There is only one unincorporated entity still doing business as The United States of America and you are part of it by birth, because your State of the Federation – Wisconsin, Ohio, Florida, Massachusetts, Maine…. is a member.  You are being called to self-govern.  Your States are being called to assemble – that means that you are being called to assemble.

There’s work to do.  Decisions to be made.  Restoration of the actual American Government to be done.

You have to self-govern, or someone else will be glad to do it for you — at your cost.

If you want a life worth living, a secure future for your children, control of your assets, a health environment, good schools, and a thriving economy — you have to wake up now and get involved.  Pay no attention to what you have hitherto mistaken as “your” government and focus single-mindedly on building up your own local assemblies, both County and State.

Run don’t walk to your State Assembly and get going.  Send an email to: contentmanager1@yahoo.com and start by getting your own political status records corrected by going to my website, www.annavonreitz.com and scrolling down to Article 928, which gives you instructions and templates to help you reclaim your birthright as an American.
