Below this article you will find out how and why America has become the most depressing Nation on earth and why.

May I humbly suggest you pay attention and do your home work if you want to really be a free human being!

For over two hundred years we have been told lie after lie by our usual source of information, like public education controlled by the corporate government, and the news and entertainment industries that profit from the governments directions.

In short it is we the people who have sat on our back sides blissfully being entertained and totally unaware of what was really going on in Washington.

NOW IS THE TIME FOR ALL GOOD MEN AND WOMEN TO LEARN THE TRUTH ABOUT AMERICA AND DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT, WHICH IS ITEMIZED IN A FORMAT ANYONE CAN UNDERSTAND ON THE FOLLOWING WEB SITES.

If you do not have the common sense to understand we are just days away from total subjection to the scum of the earth, you will soon be, and it will be too late to learn how to reverse the process of recovering our freedom.

Every day brings us closer to total submission to the scumbags who claim to own us.

Please, do your homework and see how all it takes is some knowledge of how it was done and how it can be undone.

If you are too lazy to read and learn, you will be more than sorry very soon!

06 29 19 Oregon Is Run By Democrats and Is Not A Constitutional Republic

My volunteering to report on the happenings of the Oregon Statewide Jural Assembly based on the First Amendment and Common Law Grand Jury based on Antonin Scalia’s majority opinion United States v. Williams 504 1992 seems to be even greater than I ever realized.  What started off with Western ranchers being harassed by the Federal Government’s unconstitutional radical environmental agencies unrelenting grip on these ranchers, ended up with two families in a standoff with the federal government at Malheur National Wildlife in 2016, a rural area 30 miles from Burns.  As a result, an Arizona rancher, LaVoy Finicum, who came to stand with these ranchers in protest, was ambushed by Oregon State police. My Hollywood article opened with a quote from Shakespeare, “All the world’s a stage and all the men and women merely players…” and to see how true that is, just look at the political theater on the Hill as we watch the sycophants play out their roles.

HILLARY CLINTON AND THE URANIUM CONNECTION

Western ranchers such as Cliven Bundy were far more knowledgeable about the Constitution but were unaware Nevada’s Majority Leader, Harry Reid, a self-styled socialist was negotiating lucrative solar energy deals with Communist China and calling Bundy a domestic terrorist and a racist. [Link]

And then in December 2018, Hillary Clinton and the 2010 Uranium One Deal with Russia was back in the news.

According to Steve Byas in the June 3, 2019 NEW AMERICAN article: Nuclear Power, the Promise vs. Irrational Fear like presidential candidate Bernie Sanders is spreading who wants nuclear power gone. The whole article is well worth the read and can be ordered by phoning 920-749-3784- press 2- Cost $3.95 plus postage.

But here’s what I found interesting about the whole story: The United States created the Yucca Mountain waste disposal area in Nevada specifically for storing nuclear materials – in a mine hundreds of feet of solid rock above it and hundreds of feet of solid rock below it, so the waste wouldn’t go anywhere even if the near impossibility of a leak were to happen. But the storage site was never put into use because Nevada’s powerful Senator HARRY REID became the majority leader in the Senate and decided to demagogue the issue so as to excite the passions of his constituents. Moreover, used nuclear fuel is not “spent,” rather it has only exhausted a portion of its URANIUM, AND IT COULD BE USED TO MAKE NEW FUEL – if Democrat presidents hadn’t stopped our country from reprocessing the fuel rods to retrieve the valuable uranium.  Need I say more and why the Nevada ranchers are being harassed?

RURAL –VS- URBAN ON FULL DISPLAY

Tom DeWeese has written a book SUSTAINABLE that revolves around the globalist reasons that “sustainability” is promoted around the world, reasons that have nothing to do with protecting environment.  The sustainable development ideologists are not just coming for you, your children and your town – they are already there! As American Policy Center Chief Tom DeWeese explains, if America does not fight back hard, property rights, free markets, and individual liberty will all become a thing of the past in the not-too-distance future.  But instead of being just another book that outlines the problem SUSTAINABLE: The War on Free Enterprise, Private Property and Individuals offers ideas for what every American can do to restore freedom. Whether you are well-versed in the threat of “SUSTAINABILITY” or a novice just starting to learn about it, the book will be well worth your time, says the June 3, 2019 article ENVIRONMENTAL HANDCUFFS  in the NEW AMERICAN by Alex Newman.  (Phone: 920-749-3784, press 2- one copy: $3.95 plus postage)  It will make you more effective in the freedom fight, too. And among the most valuable contributions of the book to the resistance in the ongoing war over private-property rights, which, of course, is right in line with the battle Cliven Bundy and other ranchers have been fighting – Educated Rural –vs- Dumbed down Urban living in high rise apartments that forget it’s the farmers, ranchers, etc. that grow the food that feeds them. Read the Afterthought article below.

DELIBERATE DUMBING DOWN OF AMERICA

Our Founders never felt education should be under any government control but then along came the so-called Christian President Jimmy Carter who created the Department of Education on May 4, 1980 about the same time a federalized army of eco-extremists were seeking to turn vast sections of our great Western states into wilderness areas largely off limits to human use.  The federal government’s control over education in this nation began in earnest during the Eisenhower Administration after the Soviet Union launched Sputnik, the first earth-orbiting satellites on October 4, 1957.

Almost immediately, a frantic horde of government “experts” insisted that the USSR’s achievement demonstrated that the U.S. was falling behind in the arms/space race all because of our deficient education system.  These “experts” demanded immediate and massive federal aid for all levels of schooling and began America’s educational slide downward and directly proportioned to the amount of federal dollars spent.

However, it wasn’t until the Carter Administration that a formal Department of Education was created. And any Civics being taught before 1980 which I believe to be very minimal went out the window. By eliminating Civics in school, students have no Constitutional knowledge or idea about the danger of Communism and all other isms and teachers were forbidden to teach Civics because it violated the Separation of Church and State. [Link]

And recently, the Woodrow Wilson Foundation administered a basic citizenship test to some 40,000 people nationwide, with rather discouraging results. Out of all 50 states, only Vermont managed to have a passing grade: which is to say, 53% of Vermonters passed the test. A score of 60 out of 100 was passing. [Link]

PRESIDENT- BEWARE OF CHOICE

And whoever is advising President Trump should be telling him not to be too hasty in implementing the Trump/DeVos Tax-Credit Scholarship CHOICE plan mirrored in the original Obama Plan.  The $5 billion earmarked in President Trump’s budget appear to step into Obama footprints as he calls for this PLAN FOR DISADVANTAGED CHILDREN.  Who’s kidding who? asks Anita Hoge who says parents and citizens should be screaming and banging their heads and warning the President.

OREGON IS NOT A CONSTITUTIONAL REPUBLIC BUT A DEMOCRATIC DEMOCRACY

After Finicum’s death and his widow filing a Wrongful Death lawsuit, now eighty- year old RON VROOMAN began investigating the unfortunate shooting and discovered the State of Oregon has not been a Constitutional Republic since November 8, 1910 when Article VII Amended our Oregon constitution and was placed into our Constitution without one vote being counted in any county.  This caused the executive, legislative and judicial branches of the lawful government to switch to COLOR OF LAW FROM RULE OF LAW and the fraud seems to be pervasive across the land as illustrated by Marilyn Barnewall below.

Salem can claim they operate our state government but the Secretary of State cannot prove they are the legitimate government. There is only one set of statehood documents in the original for Oregon and that was in the hands of the Founders of Oregon in 1859 so if there is no proof of statehood, we’re still a territory and as VROOMAN said in an earlier article, most likely, state of state franchises simply “moved in” after the Civil war and have operated like cuckoo birds in a robin’s nest ever since.  The ones whose elected cuckoos like Governor Kate Brown, who is being recalled, stands before a microphone with a room full of young children behind her and calls it a “democracy.” Exposing all this corruption may get Hollywood’s attention after all because all this may get really big.

JURAL ASSEMBLY CREATED

Ron later participated in forming the Jural Assembly and began lawfully, not legally, informing the governor and members of the legislature to either “self-correct”  or they will take the initiative to restore our Constitutional Republic (capitalism) from a Democratic Democracy (socialism)  which could mean imprisonment for some who refuse to comply.   With the assistance of four other members of the Action Committee at the Oregon Statewide Jural Assembly they began to confront the 36 county sheriffs who have been operating under false pledges asking them to likewise “self-correct” with an occasional favorable response but some not so favorable. [Link]

COLORADO WOMAN MARILYN BARNEWALL DID HER HOMEWORK

Shortly after my article.I received an email from Marilyn MacGruder Barnewall who said it was interesting to her because she had a similar document about Colorado and said she’d like to compare to see if similar tactics were used in Oregon.  She then sent me her American Matrix: How We Lost Our Constitution (Part 1) which she had published on NewsWithViews way back in January 2015 – four years ago. She certainly did her homework. Unfortunately, she did not have a John Wayne willing to step forward to aid her. Even our “in house expert” Ron Vrooman, to whom I have earlier referred, spokesman for the OREGON Statewide Jural Assembly admits it was well written and way ahead of him who didn’t wake up until 2014.  Marilyn says all 50 states are incorporated and that most departments within our counties are incorporated.  Later Ron learns the State of Washington and West Virginia unable to find their statehood documents either.

SHERIFF ARE THE MOST IMPORTANT ELECTED OFFICIAL

The sheriffs themselves may not know it but they are the most important persons in our Constitutional Republic. The sheriff has more power than the president in their county.  But to most people the Sheriff is an antiquated figure who lives in movies; however, Washington State liberals passed a law attempting to track and control guns (I-1639) but 20 law officers across the state are blocking its use, recognizing that it is unconstitutional and wrong. Police Chief Loren Culp of a small town of Republic was the first law-enforcement leader to take the stand and Sheriff Bob Songer, a 48 year veteran of law enforcement serving his second term as Sheriff Klickitat County describes himself as a ”CONSTITUTIONAL SHERIFF.”  “In a DEMOCRACY,” he says “ he would be obliged to enforce the ‘law’ of I-1639 but Thank God, the United States is a Republic whose Constitution states, In Article IV, ‘The United States shall guarantee to every State in this Union a Republican form of Government.’”

Marilyn says most departments within our city or county are incorporated and most people who staff these departments, including county commissioners, sheriffs, librarians, police chiefs and other department heads- appear, totally unaware of the corporate status of their “departments.”

She has a link to her County Sheriff’s office and noted it as a “Private held company.”  Please google Manta.com and you will find as I have that our sheriff’s departments are also Private held companies. And our City, County and State Courts including the Supreme Court believe they are all powerful but this is simply not true. Too much power has been given to the Judicial Department because coming out of Law school we the unlearned have been trained to believe they are the brightest and we are in fear of them. Look at what has been happening in Washington, D.C. since President Trump’s election; however, our Founders felt no one should become an attorney who may eventually be appointed as Judge because the limits on government guaranteed under the Constitution are rights God grants each of us and limits governments. A small aside, in 1991, Federal judges succeeded in removing the Constitution from their oath.

MIDDLE CLASS AMERICA HAS BEEN UNDER ATTACK BUT ALIVE AND WELL IN OREGON

Marilyn says it is time to stop speculating about issues, wondering (what a waste of time) if this crisis or that one is a false flag. Does the word Multiculturalism, Transgenderism, the initials LGBT,  Political Correctness,  Diversity, and now Tariffs and War with Iran ring a bell?  Just like the two-party political system was designed to cause chaos to keep you off balance while they take the next unlawful step 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.  As an example, during a critical border crisis, the Marxist Democrats passed the largest amnesty in history that would grant protection from deportation to illegal immigrants and give millions a path to permanent citizenship.

AFTERTHOUGHT REGARDING OUR LIBERTIES

The first draft of this article was before the big rally making national news in the Oregon State Capitol on June 27th but here’s what happened when the Middle Class said enough already and jammed Salem streets in Support of Republican Senators who walked away (Story below) The streets in Salem were jammed with tractors, log trucks, hay bailers, etc. that came from all over the State. One person reported I-5 was jammed with log trucks going south while others on I-5 were going north from Klamath Falls which has three saw mills. One gave their employees the entire day off with pay if they’d go to Salem. The Daily Astorian headlines: THOUSANDS PROTEST CLIMATE BILLS AT THE STATE CAPITOL. Long- time folks who hang around the Capitol have never seen anything like it in the last 40 years. Staffers at the Capitol said these folks were much nicer than the usual protesters they experience.  Even Liberal pro-choice women who had come to the Capitol earlier to protest the Vaccination bill came back to support the walk out. Hundreds of log trucks had to park at the State Fairgrounds were unable to get to the Capitol. [Link]

WE THE PEOPLE MUST DISSOLVE THE CORRUPT GOVERNMENT COUNTY BY COUNTY

Even more important says Marilyn, corporations can be dissolved and that is the biggest danger of the people becoming aware of this information. The corporations cannot be dissolved by the government employees who work for them; they must be dissolved by we 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.

This is where Ron and his truth seekers come into the picture in Oregon. Other states will have to find their gallant warriors ready to go to battle and then the people must stand behind them to get the job done by forming Jural Assemblies and put into prison any guilty one who opposes our Constitutional Republican form of government.

AMERICANS ARE ANGRY AND FED UP

Right now in Oregon, our legislature is about to adjourn on June 30th and the Democrat Marxists have had total control. In fact, the Republican Senators are in their second week of a walk out to stop the totalitarian Marxists from a quorum but still lots of big spending bills went through.  Finally, even a couple GOP squishy Senators needed for the quorum and known for being easily bought off finally walked out and left the state so the State Police can’t find and arrest them per the Governor’s orders.   Please pray for their safety.

CAP AND TRADE STALLED

The Democrats don’t have a quorum now to pass their dangerous Cap and Trade legislation that passed in California. Californians have been moving to Oregon and some in Oregon says if it passes here, they are moving to Idaho. Folks have enjoyed too much pleasure rather than keeping a watchful eye on their evil government. Oregon Bushback.com reports on voting records so every Oregon voter should have the numbers on their Speed Dial for their elected officials and ring them often because one phone call is equivalent to thousands who won’t call.  Now their ox is being gored due to their neglect and there have been big protest rallies at the Capitol and tyranny out of necessity always brings out talk about the militia. [Link]  The last minute good news: Oregon Republicans will return to the Senate on Saturday with the promise that Cap and Trade is gone.

Our Oregon Taxpayer Association sent us a Petition to repeal the $2.6 Billion Business Sales Tax for us to gather signatures. My husband, at age 87 took it to the bowling alley and even before everyone got on the lanes to bowl, he had the form all completed and they were asking for more. (503-603-9009) And Oregon Pushback.com has received 160,000 visitors supporting the walk out which suggests we may be winning the Public Relations battle.

HAVE YOU BEEN BLESSED WITH THE FOUNDING FATHER’S DNA?

Each of us can be an influencing factor in the lives of others who have also been deceived about our “democracy” for most of the 20th Century and beyond. (Matt: 10:26-28) Send my articles and especially Marilyn’s to your friends.  Once we can get the approximate 3100+ counties in the U.S. on board, the Liberty bell will ring but without their participation, we are destined for slavery in a One World Government and more patriots like LaVoy Finicum, who never had a traffic ticket, dying for the cause.   Do we have at least 3100+ men and/or women of valor willing to take on the task?  It’s up to you. Ron, Marilyn and I are in our 80s. We may not live long enough to see this happen unless we find others who have been blessed with the Founding Father’s DNA.

06 30 19 Corporate Governance Definition

REVIEWED BY JAMES CHEN

What is Corporate Governance?

Corporate governance is the system of rules, practices, and processes by which a firm is directed and controlled. Corporate governance essentially involves balancing the interests of a company’s many stakeholders, such as shareholders, senior management executives, customers, suppliers, financiers, the government, and the community. Since corporate governance also provides the framework for attaining a company’s objectives, it encompasses practically every sphere of management, from action plans and internal controls to performance measurement and corporate disclosure.

The Basics of Corporate Governance

Governance refers specifically to the set of rules, controls, policies, and resolutions put in place to dictate corporate behavior. Proxy advisors and shareholders are important stakeholders who indirectly affect governance, but these are not examples of governance itself. The board of directors is pivotal in governance, and it can have major ramifications for equity valuation.

Communicating a firm’s corporate governance is a key component of community and investor relations. On Apple Inc.’s investor relations site, for example, the firm outlines its corporate leadership—its executive team, its board of directors—and its corporate governance, including its committee charters and governance documents, such as bylaws, stock ownership guidelines and articles of incorporation.

Most companies strive to have a high level of corporate governance. For many shareholders, it is not enough for a company to merely be profitable; it also needs to demonstrate good corporate citizenshipthrough environmental awareness, ethical behavior, and sound corporate governance practices. Good corporate governance creates a transparent set of rules and controls in which shareholders, directors, and officers have aligned incentives.

KEY TAKEAWAYS

  • Corporate governance is the structure of rules, practices, and processes used to direct and manage a company.
  • A company’s board of directors is the primary force influencing corporate governance.
  • Bad corporate governance can cast doubt on a company’s reliability, integrity, and transparency—all of which can have implications on its financial health.

Corporate Governance and the Board of Directors

The board of directors is the primary direct stakeholder influencing corporate governance. Directors are elected by shareholders or appointed by other board members, and they represent shareholders of the company. The board is tasked with making important decisions, such as corporate officer appointments, executive compensation, and dividend policy. In some instances, board obligations stretch beyond financial optimization, as when shareholder resolutions call for certain social or environmental concerns to be prioritized.

Boards are often made up of inside and independent members. Insiders are major shareholders, founders and executives. Independent directors do not share the ties of the insiders, but they are chosen because of their experience managing or directing other large companies. Independents are considered helpful for governance because they dilute the concentration of power and help align shareholder interest with those of the insiders.

Bad Corporate Governance

Bad corporate governance can cast doubt on a company’s reliability, integrity or obligation to shareholders—all of which can have implications on the firm’s financial health. Tolerance or support of illegal activities can create scandals like the one that rocked Volkswagen AG starting in September 2015. The development of the details of “Dieselgate” (as the affair came to be known) revealed that for years, the automaker had deliberately and systematically rigged engine emission equipment in its cars in order to manipulate pollution test results, in America and Europe. Volkswagen saw its stock shed nearly half its value in the days following the start of the scandal, and its global sales in the first full month following the news fell 4.5%.

Public and government concern about corporate governance tends to wax and wane. Often, however, highly publicized revelations of corporate malfeasance revive interest in the subject. For example, corporate governance became a pressing issue in the United States at the turn of the 21st century, after fraudulent practices bankrupted high-profile companies such as Enron and WorldCom. It resulted in the 2002 passage of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act, which imposed more stringent recordkeeping requirements on companies, along with stiff criminal penalties for violating them and other securities laws. The aim was to restore public confidence in public companies and how they operate.

Other types of bad governance practices include:

  • Companies do not cooperate sufficiently with auditors or do not select auditors with the appropriate scale, resulting in the publication of spurious or noncompliant financial documents.
  • Bad executive compensation packages fail to create an optimal incentive for corporate officers.
  • Poorly structured boards make it too difficult for shareholders to oust ineffective incumbents.

OLDDOGS COMMENTS!

Great Article! 

And now that you have been exposed to Unconstitutional Corporate Government, head on over to http://www.annavonreitz.com/ and read all 1901 articles on how we have been suckered into the hands of criminals and corporate scumbags as our leaders. For every one who has the intelligence to understand all this crap about American superiority you will find out real quick just how ignorant we have all been. Anna is by far the greatest researcher I have ever read. YOU WOULD DO WELL TO LEARN HOW WE WERE BEGUILED AND WHY, PLUS HOW WE CAN GAIN CONTROL OF THEM AND RESTRUCTURE OUR ORIGINAL FORM OF GOVERNANCE.


06 29 19 Operation Wet Back

06/29/2019

http://www.paulstramer.net/2019/06/operation-wet-back.html

 By Anna Von Reitz

Back in the 1950’s, when Americans were not pre-programmed to be politically correct, General Dwight D. Eisenhower and his Staff conducted Operation Wet Back.  They used US Army and Federal Agency personnel to sweep through the Southern and Western States and remove all undocumented aliens back to their countries of origin.  If I recall correctly, more than a million people, mostly South American in origin, were ultimately returned home.

They were returned home and the home country got a stern warning: you are responsible for the care and conduct of your own people within the international community.  We respect your borders.  You respect ours.

End of communique.

And that was that.  No crisis.  No political Flim-Flam.  No Mexican flags flying above the American flag in LA.  No pretense that “treaties” signed by unhinged members of political parties have anything to do with us and our States and our People and our land and soil.  No South American Gang Members being allowed to come here and cause trouble.

Threat to our security.  Boom.  End of that problem.

Eisenhower performed the duty owed by the Territorial United States Government and the U.S. Military and the Commander-in-Chief to protect and defend our land and soil against any kind of invasion— without fanfare, without apology, without political correctness, and without a nod to the Municipal Congress, either.

So now here we are, the actual States of the Union, flexing our muscle and making visitation upon our erstwhile Federal Employees.  Consider it a Surprise Inspection after a 150 years, but here we are.

We find that Donald Trump is attempting to do his duty, but various members of the Joint Chiefs and PENTAGON are having difficulty understanding exactly what their duty is and who is owed Performance under the contracts, treaties, and agreements which allow their own existence as “Persons” and which delegates the empowerment they exercise in our behalf.

So here it is, boys, spelled out in black and white.

Your paychecks come from the States and People represented by The United States of America— not “the” United States of America and not “the” United States, either.   The Queen and the Pope are both just acting as middlemen under our Delegated Power.  Your actual duty to perform is owed to us— the American States and People.  Period.

Anything and anyone that threatens us and our well-being, whether foreign — like the hordes of illegal immigrants — or domestic, like renegade members of Congress – you are under absolute obligation to protect us, our peace, and our well-being.

If that means building a physical wall, so be it.  If it means telling South American Governments to back off, so be it.  If it means rounding up illegal immigrants and arresting Municipal Officers operating unauthorized “Sanctuary Cities” on our shores, so be it.  If it means arresting members of Congress who have violated the Public Trust, so be it. Deport them along with the illegal immigrants. If it means being politically incorrect, so be it.

Do your duty.  Do it no matter what yelling and screaming it provokes.  Do it no matter who snivels and cries in the New York Times.   You don’t owe Performance to U.S. Citizens, but you do owe Performance to us: the American States and People.

So, as you can now see, it is all very simple.  You all do your duty to the Public Law and the States and the People of this country, or—-what good are you? Exactly what do we need you for?

We’ll fire your flat rumps and hire someone else who will do the job we hired them to do.  We’ll suspend your pensions for Dereliction of Duty.  We will Dishonorably Discharge the whole General Staff.  And we won’t blink or be acting guilty or apologizing or being politically correct about it, either.

Better get on board.   The Ship of State is sailing.

06 29 19 The Status and Operations of the United States in 30 Points

06/29/2019

http://www.paulstramer.net/2019/06/the-status-and-operations-of-united.html

 By Anna Von Reitz

This is not rocket science.  We all just have to learn a few things we have never been taught.

  1. The American Civil War was not a war.  It was a Mercenary Conflict fought on our shores between opposing commercial corporations.

 

  1. Both the North and the South were “Confederate States” – meaning incorporated businesses run under the auspices of the States of America confederation which was formed in 1781 under The Articles of Confederation.

 

  1. Confederate States are not States; they are “States of States” — businesses hired to provide governmental services to our actual States and People.   They may be viewed as subcontractors of the States.

 

  1. The Confederate States of States, like The State of Florida and The State of Wisconsin  were supposed to be the primary Federal service providers and to operate under The Constitution for the united States of America.

 

  1. In 1863, Abraham Lincoln bankrupted the Northern States of States.  The only Office he had left that he controlled was that of Commander-in-Chief, so he imposed a form of Martial Law called The Lieber Code and began to rule by Executive Order.

 

  1. The Office of the Commander-in-Chief falls under the auspices of the Territorial United States Government and is responsible for coordinating joint defense for the States between American Land and Air Forces and the US Navy which remains under direct control of the British Monarch.  As such, this Office is under the British Territorial Constitution known as The Constitution of the United States of America.

 

  1. In the years since this began, The Lieber Code has morphed into The Hague Conventions, which apply to Territorial Government activities.   Land jurisdiction governments meanwhile formed The Geneva Conventions.

 

  1. The affairs of the remaining elements of the Federal Government in 1865  entered into an uneasy Trusteeship pending the “reconstruction” of the American States of States and day to day operations were entrusted to the British-backed Territorial United States Government.

 

  1. So what we had for a “Federal Government” coming out of the Civil War was a British Trust Protectorate overseen by an American-elected Commander-in-Chief operating under The Lieber Code (later The Hague Conventions) and ruling via Executive Orders.  That’s what we still have today.

 

  1. Please note that none of this ever involved our actual States.  This is all about the administration and/or mis-administration of the Federal Government and those functions delegated to it via the Constitutions.

 

  1. Meanwhile, the only other surviving part of the original Federal Government structure, the Municipal United States Government entrusted to the members of Congress under Article 1, Section 8, Clause 17, regrouped itself and began a long process by which it, too, has attempted to usurp upon the authority of the actual States and People of this country.

 

  1. By the end of the Spanish American War, the British Trust Protectorate had insinuated itself as the de facto government of this country and acting in its Territorial Capacity, the Congress assumed “War Powers” and “Emergency Powers” for itself that were never granted to it– under Title 50, the Trading With the Enemy Act— which again, does not involve our actual States or People at all, except to exempt us.

 

  1. The Trading With the Enemy Act establishes a gigantic trust and defines “the United States” as any place the U.S. military occupies.   This allows the U.S. military to vastly expand its Territorial operations and acquisitions on a worldwide basis, and that is precisely what it has done and the reason for establishing 950 U.S. military bases all over the globe.

 

  1. Along with this vast expansion and extension of Territorial Government power, the Municipal United States Government has expanded commercial franchises in every corner of the globe, setting up corporate franchises for itself, such as CANADA and NEW SOUTH WALES, to promote and control business operations associated with the Territorial Government expansion.

 

  1. Obviously, all of this is going on under the auspices of the British Government and the Pope’s Municipal Government manipulating the American Protectorate and using and abusing our resources and our people to do it.

 

  1. They have principally endeavored to defraud and dis-inherit the actual States and People of this country via a series of collusive constructive fraud schemes, and sought to ultimately evade the limitations of the Constitutions and International Treaties that have empowered them.

 

  1. This constructive fraud begins when the Territorial Government “seizes” upon American babies born within the borders of one of our States and falsifies information about their identity and political status so as to conscript them and register them as Territorial United States Citizens.

 

  1. This has the effect of kidnapping and transporting Americans from their natural jurisdiction on the land and soil of their actual State, and into the foreign international jurisdiction of the sea: press-ganging, which has been outlawed for two centuries worldwide.

 

  1. Thus misidentified by the Territorial United States Government as Territorial U.S. Citizens and deprived therefore of their property rights and Good Names and lawful identities, the victims are leased as property assets (collateral) to the United States, Inc. run by the Municipal United States Government.

 

  1. The Municipal United States Government seizes upon the Territorial Legal Persons–  which are all defined as Foreign Situs Trusts,  and spins off its own corporate franchises operating under various NAMES – JOHN MARK DOE, for example,  is a Municipal Cestui Que Vie Trust named ultimately after the living American victim.

 

  1. All of this has been done in Gross Breach of Trust, in deliberate conspiracy against the Constitutions, in violation of the Geneva Conventions, and under False Presumptions.

 

  1. The first False Presumption is that our States and People are subject to The Law of Belligerent Occupation as the result of a 150 year-old commercial Mercenary Conflict that we were never engaged in.

 

  1. Our States and People are in fact owed The Law of Peace, as described by United States Army Pamphlet AR 27-161-1 and have suffered Gross Breach of Trust and Gross Mis-Administration of the Protectorate.

 

  1. Any Powers exercised or conferred upon or delegated to either the Territorial Government or the Municipal Government of the United States derives directly from the actual States and People of this country, which they have deliberately mis-identified as Confederate States of States and as British Territorial Citizens.

 

  1. Without us and our continued support, their “Persons” disappear along with the Constitutions allowing and defining their existence.

 

  1. Whereupon we observe that the Municipal United States Corporations have all been bankrupted and we are the Priority Creditors, owed $25 Trillion as our National Credit, plus many other considerations.

 

  1. Whereupon we also note that as bankrupt Subcontractors, all “Powers” vested in any incompetent or insolvent entity, return immediately to the Delegators — to the States and People and their unincorporated Federation of States doing business as The United States of America.

 

  1. The Trustees overseeing the bankruptcy of the United States, Inc.  and also the USA. Inc. franchises are responsible for returning Full Faith and Credit to The United States of America, its member States, and People.

 

  1. By Maxim of Law, possession by pirates does not change ownership of assets, and any Persons seeking to seize upon and exploit the assets of Trust Property arising from any Federal claim at all, are pirates by definition with respect to our land and soil jurisdiction States and People.

 

  1. Those responsible for these atrocities committed against the American States and People –an attempted genocide on paper – have acted in criminal Breach of Trust and they must make prompt correction and amends to avoid being identified as criminals guilty of capital crimes and treason.

06 27 19 WHERE DID OUR FLAG GO? Montana flag that is.

06/29/2019

http://www.paulstramer.net/2019/06/where-did-our-flag-go-montana-flag-that.html

From one of our readers about LGBT flag above our Montana Capitol Building.

 

By Roger Koopman

If you happened past our state capitol last weekend, you would have been in for a surprise.  Looking for our state flag, flying proudly over the capitol building, you wouldn’t have found it.   Our governor ordered it taken down.  Not lowered.  Removed.

In its place, a flag that represents some of us, but certainly not all of us.  A flag that stands for a specific social, moral and political movement that many Montanans find abhorrent, and in direct conflict with their fundamental values, religious and political beliefs.

This past weekend, the standard of the LGBT “Gay Pride” Movement replaced the flag of the sovereign state of Montana.   

Bullock’s flag replacement occasioned Helena’s largest-ever Gay Pride Celebration.  Do I have a problem with that celebration?  Not a bit.  Like most liberty-loving Montanans, I honor and defend the right of others to free expression, and to promoting their personal political, cultural and religious convictions – no matter how strongly I may disagree with them.

But conversely, I draw a very bright line against compelling other individuals to adopt, support or “celebrate” political values and causes to which they are personally opposed, or that violate their sacred consciences.  Symbolically, this is exactly what Governor Bullock has done by substituting our state flag with the rainbow flag – and this is one Montana citizen who is not willing to be Steve Bullock’s political pawn.

Private organizations and corporations may do whatever they please, and indeed, many engage in various social causes and political advocacies.  In their case, the rules of the game are very different.  They operate in a competitive marketplace, where their customers can approve or disapprove of their corporate causes and vote their dollars accordingly.

But in the public realm, political advocacy is prohibited by law.  There is only one governor of a state, who represents all of it’s people, and is the ultimate trustee of the state’s honor, reputation and everything that the flag Bullock pulled down stands for.

We can judge for ourselves, how we feel about the political alignment of a given business, and make our feelings known.  A case in point was my disappointment with my favorite baseball team’s recent celebration of “LGBT Night.”  I wrote, in part:

Let’s be honest enough to recognize the strong political and religious undertones of the LGBT Movement, and the degree to which many traditionally-valued Americans and people of faith are deeply concerned about its effects on today’s culture and tomorrow’s kids… To me, it’s also bizarre that the Dodgers would devote a special night to celebrating people’s private sexual habits.  I mean, really.  I don’t view that as any of my business – especially when settling in with family to simply enjoy a baseball game. 

 Moreover, I do not wish to be politicized at times like that, and neither do most fans, regardless of the issue.  How would they feel if instead, the game was dedicated to the Sanctity of Life, and an abortion survivor threw out the first pitch?”

          Note that I never questioned the team’s right to do this – only its wisdom.  Predictably, I never heard back.  I had just touched the ultimate third rail of political correctness, and they were hesitant to touch that rail themselves.

Perhaps it’s that socially-enforced censorship that I object to most of all.

One purpose of this column is to encourage people to speak up for their values and beliefs, and not allow others to label them bigoted or intolerant for doing so. The self-certified arbiters of “acceptable public discourse” are all around us, enforcing their political correctness on the college campuses and in the public square. Just don’t listen to them.

The politically-related issues and agendas of the LGBT Movement are as fair game as any other. If respectful discourse, disagreement and debate are to return to this country, then those who cry foul and accuse others of intolerance the most, need to learn to live with the diversity they claim to love.

They need to get out of the mouths and the ears of the people, walk in integrity, live in liberty, and acknowledge that freedom is the one thing you cannot possess for yourself unless you are willing to give it away.

In the meantime, if I am labeled a bigot for expressing my beliefs, I will keep on speaking.  If I am trashed as intolerant for expressing my beliefs, I will keep on speaking.  If I am isolated and ostracized for expressing my beliefs, I will keep on speaking.  I will not be intimidated.  I will not be silenced. I will walk the walk and talk the talk of a free man, no matter how much others choose to hate me for it.

Last I heard, freedom of thought and freedom of conscience are still cherished principles in this nation.  And the First Amendment still applies to everyone.

Roger Koopman represents district 3 on the Public Service Commission, and is a former state legislator from Gallatin County.

 

OLDDOGS COMMENTS!

Let’s all be clear on one thing, our personal opinions are guaranteed by our Constitution, and if the gay people we detest don’t like it ………..tough titty!

Personally, this old man would deny them these sacred rights and send them to Africa. They are disgusting freaks of nature.


06 28 19 For Confused Continental Marshals

06/28/2019

http://www.paulstramer.net/2019/06/for-confused-continental-marshals.html

 By Anna Von Reitz

The Continental Marshals Service serves the Land Jurisdiction of The United States of America.

The Land Jurisdiction is an international jurisdiction belonging to The United States, but controlled and operated by The United States of America.  This is where we get “States of the Union” meaning “States belonging to the Union”.

These States are all Federation Compact States — Wisconsin, Florida, Texas, California, Ohio….. not to be confused with “states of states”.

The United States = the Union = republican states = national jurisdiction.

The United States of America = the Federation = States of the Union = international jurisdiction.

These unincorporated business structures are not to be confused with the Territorial United States Government doing business “in our name” as “the” United States of America, nor with the Municipal United States Government doing business in our name as “the” United States.

From the foregoing you can see that Continental Marshals have enforcement authority under direct delegation from the unincorporated government that is in charge of the international jurisdiction owed to the States in general and that government is The United States of America.

They have primary responsibility for enforcing the Law of the Land including the Constitutions, the Un-revised United States Statutes-at-Large, Postal Laws and issues arising under the Reserved Powers of the Tenth Amendment.

As international land jurisdiction Officers they are not under any authority vested in the individual States, are not part of the State Militias; like the sea-going US Marshals their turf is defined by Districts — in the case of Continental Marshals, they work within Postal Districts that may overlap several States.

The structure mandated is that each State has one Chief Marshal and each Postal District has a District Chief Marshal, all organized under a single Chief Marshal of The United States of America.  Deputy Marshals serve under the direction of the Chief Marshal for their State or the District Chief Marshal as the issues and needs may demand.

So long as the Constitutions are honored, the duties of the Continental Marshals are limited to protecting the land jurisdiction of this country as described: Constitutional Issues, Un-Revised US Statutes-at-Large, Reserved Powers (Amendment X) and Postal Laws.

If the Constitutions are vacated, the Continental Marshals become responsible for enforcing all aspects of international law within their Districts.

Continental Marshals serve a unique interface between the County Sheriffs and the Federal Government; when County Sheriffs need assistance to enforce Constitutional guarantees, the Continental Marshals are there to assist; when County Sheriffs fail to uphold the Constitutional guarantees and other Natural and Unalienable Rights of the American People, the Continental Marshals can be called upon.

Some of the men now serving as Continental Marshals are confused because they are being required to Expatriate from “the” United States.  They mistake “the” United States — the foreign Municipal Government created by Article I, Section 8, Clause 17 for the actual United States: The United States.

This confusion has been promoted for many decades by gangs of political lobbyists who have used it to commandeer the wealth and resources of our country.  The Municipal United States Government is operating “in our names” because it exercises some of our Powers which were delegated to it under The Constitution of the United States.

Please look carefully at the names of things — The Constitution of the United States is referring to the Municipal United States Government, not The United States, just as The Constitution of the United States of America is referring to the Territorial United States Government and not The United States of America.

Continental Marshals must be able to identify the Federal Entities and know the constitutional limitations placed on those entities, must be able to tell the difference between an actual State and a State of State,  or STATE OF STATE incorporated franchise.

Expatriating from both  “the” Municipal and Territorial United States leaves Continental Marshals free to stand upon their lawful jurisdiction as Americans and allows them to enter the international land jurisdiction of The United States of America where they work as Lawful Persons engaged in the enforcement of international law.

If they do not expatriate from the foreign Dual Citizenship capacity of US Government Employees, they cannot lawfully enter upon the Land Jurisdiction of this Country and do their jobs.  More importantly, if they are confused with US Marshals, they may be mis-identified as threats or as charlatans impersonating US Marshals.

The only way to guard against this is to have their paperwork in order and properly recorded and a firm grasp on exactly what their duty and source of authority is.

Duty: Enforce the Constitutions, the Un-Revised United States Statutes-at-Large, the Postal Laws, and any issues arising under the Reserved Powers of Amendment X.  Assist county peacekeeping officials and local people to enforce the Public Law owed to this country.

Turf and Authority:  Established Postal Districts and groupings of States within the Postal Districts.  Continental Marshals are Federal Postal District Officers under the original Federal Constitution, The Constitution for the united States of America, and they are working for The United States of America — not the Queen, and not the Pope.

I hope this clears up any misinformation/disinformation coming from Destry Payne and others.  Any Marshal who has questions can contact me directly at avannavon@gmail.com and use “Continental Marshal Question” as the subject.

06 27 19 Barr’s Call to the Scottish Templars

06/27/2019

http://www.paulstramer.net/2019/06/barrs-call-to-scottish-templars.html

By Anna Von Reitz

The Stupid People among us are making jokes about United States Attorney General William Barr’s sudden appearance playing the bagpipes.

What they don’t know is that that is a worldwide signal to the Scottish Templars to go to war and aid him in his duty, whatever that duty is.

The wheels of a massive and ancient Brotherhood are now turning and will turn until God or another Grandmaster cancels “The Calling”.

Whether it’s good or bad, I will leave that to all of you to determine in the days and weeks to come.

Considering that it was a Scottish Templar corporation doing business as “The United States of America, Inc.” that began all this corruption and criminality on our shores, it doesn’t look good that the same basic organization– three generations removed– is now mobilizing.

That, together with the resurgence of US Navy influence in military affairs, indicates a British Empire impetus to do something — but against who and what — is not yet clear.

With the eyes of the entire world now focused upon them— and rather jaundiced eyes, too– they need to be called to righteous action instead of the usual guile that has made Perfidious Albion famous since 1302.
