HOW can WE the People regain control of OUR right to “life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness? WE have delved into what won’t work in order to find what will work.

The List (simplified)

8.   Establish a new service to restore OUR rights to “Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness.”

Today: The Bread on the Bottom of US – a summary

In a sandwich, there are usually two pieces of bread and something in the middle. In OUR republic, the piece of bread on top of US, WE the People are all the causes even though of good intentions, are divisive because, WE are not united. If WE are not united, WE are divided. It’s just that simple. The piece of bread on the bottom US, WE the People is a corrupt, corrupting and corruptible “system.” And in the middle of the sandwich is US, WE the People. What follows is a summary of the piece of bread on bottom of US.

Last time, WE saw that WE are the jam in the middle of the sandwich. WE the People are the only solution. It is US, WE the People that must tear down and rip out the corrupt, corrupting and corruptible “system,” the “legal fiction” that has co-mingled itself within OUR republic. After those brief introductory remarks…   🙂

…the summary of the bottom piece of bread beneath US, WE the People, follows. These are the facts and they are undisputed. The conclusions are yours. The “system” removed or allowed to continue, is dependent upon an overwhelming number of US, WE the People overwhelmingly recognizing and are overwhelmingly recognized that WE are the only solution!

Please Note: Since I was born in the state of Missouri and it is known as the ‘Show Me’ state, you will see the words ‘Show me,’ repeated often below.

  1. In 1861, Congress had adjourned sine die (pronounced sign-e die-e, Latin “without a day”), to reconvene. President Abraham Lincoln summoned them back by presidential order April 15, 1861, invoking the “Extraordinary occasions” clause of the U.S, Constitution Article 2 Section 3. Congress responded as ordered and citing the same clause as the president, re-convened July 4th, 1861. No matter how one looks at this, whether they choose to use the words Martial Law or not, this was not a normal constitutional Congress that re-convened on that day. Therefore, it was an Executive Congress. If you prefer, call this an Extraordinary Occasion Congress. Even though Congress has continued to convene and adjourn since 1861, can anyone Show me the day, time, and record of this being changed since 1861? Draw your own conclusions.
  2. If the Congress was under the jurisdiction or control of the Executive Branch, how did the Judiciary operate? No matter how one looks at this, whether they choose to use the words Martial Law or not, this was not a normal constitutional Judiciary Branch. The president from the proclamation of 1861, called the military into service as the Commander in Chief, to suppress a rebellion, not to declare a war as only Congress could do. The military and/or military justice (rule by force) would replace the courts (rule by law). Therefore, it was an Executive Judiciary. If you prefer, call this an Extraordinary Occasion Judiciary. In Article 1 Section 9 of the Constitution it states in part – “The privilege of the Writ of Habeas Corpus shall not be suspended, unless when in case of Rebellion or Invasion the public Safety may require it…” Even though the Judiciary Branch has continued to operate since 1861 and specifically 1863 under the Conscription Act ever since, can anyone Show me the day, time, and record of this being changed since 1861 or 1863? Draw your own conclusions.
  3. On February 25, 1863, The National Bank Act became federal law. It established a “system” for a national security holding body for the existence of the monetary policy of the state. The Act, together with Abraham Lincoln’s issuance of “greenbacks,” raised money for the federal government in the American Civil War by enticing banks to buy federal bonds and taxing state bank issued currency out of existence. The law was later replaced by the National Bank Act of 1864 and other such laws, including the 16th Amendment to the Constitution (income tax) ever since. Can anyone Show me the day, time, and record of the control over OUR money being changed since 1863? Draw your own conclusions.
  4. In 1863, Congress passed the Conscription Act and it was signed into law by President Lincoln March 3rd, 1863. Not only did this law require people to be drafted into the military, but to enforce the law, it set up “districts” among all the northern states and when under control of the union army, all the southern states as well. While appearing constitutional among the states, in having representation in congress, the true power of enforcement was a provost-marshal of each “district.” No matter how one looks at this, whether they choose to think of or use the words Martial Law or not, this was not a normal constitutional representation of the several states. Therefore, these once sovereign and component states became Executive “district” states. If you prefer, call them Extraordinary Occasion States. Can anyone Show me the day, time, and record of the jurisdiction over “district” states being changed since 1863? Draw your own conclusions.
  5. General Orders No. 100 by President Lincoln, 24 April 1863, effectively put the entire country under Martial Law. It is specifically so named in SECTION I – “Martial LawMilitary jurisdictionMilitary necessityRetaliation.” Even though Martial Law was lifted after the war, southern states re-entered the union and habeas corpus was restored, can anyone Show me the day, time, and record of jurisdiction over “district” states, the Judiciary and Legislative Branch being restored to their original Constitutional authority? Or do all remain under the jurisdiction of the Executive Branch of government? Is our entire nation still an Extraordinary Occasion nation? Draw your own conclusions.
  6. On January 31, 1865, Congress passed the 13th Amendment to the Constitution, making it law that slavery or involuntary servitude “shall not exist.” Was this an Executive Extraordinary Occasion Congress or a Constitutional Congress? Can anyone Show me the day, time, and record of jurisdiction to enforce this law has not and is not still, residing under the jurisdiction of the Federal Government? Draw your own conclusions.
  7. December 6, 1865, the several states ratified the 13th Amendment of the Constitution, thereby making it part of, “the law of the land.” Was this “ratification” made by sovereign and component states or were they Extraordinary Occasion “district states” under the jurisdiction of the Federal Government? Can anyone Show me the day, time, and record that the emphatic words of this amendment, “any place subject to their jurisdiction,” meaning, the United States Federal Government, has ever been changed? Draw your own conclusions.
  8. On June 13, 1866, Congress passed the 14th Amendment to the Constitution. Was this passed by a Constitutional Congress or an Executive Extraordinary Occasion Congress? Can anyone Show me the day, time, and record that the emphatic words of this amendment, “within its jurisdiction,” meaning the United States Federal Government, has ever been changed? Draw your own conclusions.
  9. On July 9th, 1868, the several states ratified the 14th Amendment, making it a part of the “law of the land,” the U.S. Constitution. Were these sovereign and component states or the Extraordinary Occasion “district” states of 1863?  Does this Amendment 14 Section 1, name a new class of citizenship? Can anyone Show me the day, time, and record that the emphatic words of this amendment, “subject to the jurisdiction thereof,” referring to the citizens and their relationship to the jurisdiction of the United States Federal Government, has ever been changed? Draw your own conclusions.
  10. From the ratification February 3, 1870, with the 15th Amendment added to the U.S. Constitution, was this made a part of “the law of the land,” by sovereign and component states or Extraordinary Occasion “district” states? Can anyone Show me the day, time, and record that the emphatic words of this amendment, “citizens of the United States” Amendment 15 Section 1, referring to the citizens and their relationship to the jurisdiction of the United States Federal Government, has ever been changed? Draw your own conclusions.
  11. February 3, 1913, the several states ratified the 16th Amendment which allowed the Federal Government to collect income taxes “from whatever sources derived.” Can anyone Show me the day, time, and record that the necessary ¾ of the states actually ratified this law, as it is written, in the U.S. Constitution? Even if you could, were these states sovereign and component states or Extraordinary Occasion “district states? Draw your own conclusions.
  12. Amendments 17 – 27 from 1913 to 1992, to the U.S. Constitution, were these ratified by sovereign component states or Extraordinary Occasion “district” states? Please understand that I am not advocating the return of slavery or the denial of ‘the vote’ to all eligible citizens regardless of race, color, creed, sex or legal age. The questions are not to the intention of these amendments or even their effectiveness, but the jurisdiction; control over them and were they proposed by a Constitutional Congress or a Extraordinary Occasion Executive Congress, and were they ratified by Constitutional State Legislatures or Extraordinary Occasion, Executive State “district” Legislatures?
  13. Article 1 Section 8. U.S. Constitution in part reads: – “To exercise exclusive Legislation in all Cases whatsoever, over such District (not exceeding ten Miles square) as may, by Cession of particular States, and the Acceptance of Congress, become the Seat of the Government of the United States,…” This is obviously referring to what we know as, Washington D.C. or the “District” of Columbia. In 1871, the Congress passed the Organic Act of 1871. – CHAPTER 62, 1871 16 United States Statutes at Large 419 FORTY FIRST CONGRESS SESSION III . CHAPTER 62, 1871 CHAP. LXII. —“An act to provide a Government for the District of Columbia. Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United States in Congress assembled, That all that part of the territory of the United States included within the limits of the District of Columbia be, and the same is hereby, created into a government by the name of the District of Columbia, by which name it is hereby constituted a body corporate for municipal purposes, and may contract and be contracted with, sue and be sued, plead and be impleaded, have a seal, and exercise all other powers of a municipal corporation not inconsistent with the Constitution and laws of the United States and the provisions of this act.” The original intent of the Constitution is that no state would have an unfair advantage or control of the seat of OUR united central government. Congress was given the exclusive control, to govern this “district,” the District of Columbia. Even as a “body corporate” it was not to be and is, not inconsistent with the Constitution. It is set up as a republic etc. It does have a constitution. Its physical boundaries are confined to 10 square miles. However, can anyone Show me the day, time, and record of items numbering 1 -12 above, have ever been changed since 1861? Therefore, this seat of government, this “District” of Columbia, Washington D.C., incorporates the Extraordinary Occasion “district” citizens, the Extraordinary Occasion “district” states, with exclusive control over both its “district” states and its “district” citizens by the Extraordinary Occasion Congress. The Extraordinary Occasion Congress and the Extraordinary Occasion Judiciary remain under the jurisdiction of the Extraordinary Occasion Executive Branch and ultimately with the president of the United States. This is the “system” of which I have referred to so often as, a corrupt, corrupting and corruptible “system.”  It is “legal fiction.” It is interpretation, legalese, legal speak and a mindset established under “extraordinary Occasions,” since 1861. Since 1861, it has continued to operate to the present-day.  As such, it is not inconsistent with the Constitution as it is set up as republic and a corporate form of government with a constitution. But it has “exclusive” jurisdiction, power and control over the entire country, and its people. OUR republic and OUR constitution, and OUR unalienable rights remain hidden under its veil of secrecy. It is not a person, persons or a party’s secrecy, but the secrecy or hidden self, of itself. This is not a conspiracy in that there is no single person, persons or a party to blame. It is what it is, a corrupt, corrupting and corruptible “system.” Most people under it cannot see this anymore than most people that operate it. All are “useful idiots” until all can see it, know how to tear it down and rip it out of OUR republic and DO IT which is to – RIP IT DOWN AND TEAR IT OUT! Can anyone Show me the day, time, and record of this being changed since 1861? Can anyone Show me that all the laws and even amendments to OUR Constitution since 1861, have ever been amended, rescinded, canceled or overturned since 1861? Can anyone Show me that these are not the facts and that they are not undisputed? Draw your own conclusions.

To those of US, WE the people that have long wondered or felt in OUR ‘gut’ and to those that now wonder or feel in their ‘gut’ that something is seriously wrong in OUR republic, can anyone Show me that it is not this corrupt, corrupting and corruptible “system” which explains it?

The bread on top of US, WE the People with all the almost innumerable causes and multiple directions, can anyone Show me that these do not divide US and even though good intentioned, prevent US from being united?

The bread on the bottom of US, WE the People with all its intricate tentacle like details; exclusive jurisdiction and control over US, WE the people, OUR Country, OUR States, OUR government, OUR republic and thus preventing the normal flow of OUR Constitution, controls it as well, can anyone Show me that it is not a corrupt, corrupting and corruptible “system”?

The jam in the middle of this sandwich is US, WE the People.

This sandwich is eating US, WE the People, you and me, OUR public servants, OUR nation, OUR, republic, OUR Constitution and the future security of OUR liberty; OUR unalienable rights and OUR posterity.

WE are being eaten alive!

The Bread on Top of US

HOW can WE the People regain control of OUR right to “life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness? WE have delved into what won’t work in order to find what will work.

The List (simplified)

1.   Overthrow the government by a military coup or para-military militias?

2.   The 9/12 Project?

3.   ‘The Commerce Clause?’

4.   Convening a Constitutional Congress?

5.   Hope that the present circumstances will change and the will of WEthe People will be implemented?

6.   Hope that the other party will get its act together and produce the necessary changes for WE the People in future elections?

7.   Remain divided and work for self, other causes, parties and candidates.

Today: The Bread on Top of WE – a summary

In a sandwich, there are usually two pieces of bread and something in the middle. In OUR republic, the piece of bread on top of US, WE the People are all the causes even though of good intentions, are divisive because, WE are not united. If WE are not united, WE are divided. It’s just that simple. The piece of bread on the bottom US, WE the People is a corrupt, corrupting and corruptible “system.” And in the middle of the sandwich is US, WE the People. What follows is a summary of the piece of bread on top of US.

  1. Overthrowing the government by the military will not work! OUR military answer to a chain of command and ultimately to the Commander and Chief, the President of the United States. Any attempt to overthrow the government, would be considered an act of treason.
  2. The 9.12 Project will not work! People were mostly bonded together on 9.12.01 through fear. WE need to be united by the common goal of securing our sovereign and unalienable rights. The 9.12 Project purports to be a non-political organization. By its very nature, it is both political and a commercial enterprise with links to Glen Beck, Fox News and Rupert Murdoch. Being associated with these prevents this from being a viable solution, as there are many that do not support them. Therefore, WE the People remain divided.
  3. Challenging The Commerce Clause will not work! The courts generally side with their own opinions and do not appear willing to overturn, over a century of their own decisions. In order to challenge this constitutional clause, the word “commerce” would have to be defined and proven, as to its original intention in 1789. The case must be presented to the U.S. Supreme Court and accepted to be heard. The legalese and statutory must be perfect. The attorneys arguing before the court must have perfect trial records. A majority of the Chief Justices must be willing to overturn their decisions and all those since 1789, with regards to the commerce clause.
  4. Convening a Constitutional Congress (Article V Convention or Convention to propose amendments if you prefer) will not work! It is time consuming. At least ²/³ of the states must all agree to apply to Congress for a convention. Once this occurs, Congress then is supposed to call for a convention. If they have not received the required number of applications and even if they have, Congress apparently believes it is their constitutional authority to accept or reject such applications. But if and when such a convention was to convene, there is no way in our present-day to control the outcome in the proposals chosen or the ratification by ¾ of the state Legislatures. From a practical standpoint alone, it is impossible to amend the 100’s and 1,000’s of laws not in the Constitution, affecting, effecting and infecting OUR republic. And such a convention does not address the principle cause, which is a corrupt, corrupting, and corruptible “system,” which would prevent or not allow it to proceed. Get rid of the “system” surrounding the process and then the process will work.
  5. Hope that the circumstances will change and OUR republic will be restored will not work! Things moving in one direction have the tendency of continuing to move in the same direction. An equal and opposite force would only stop the motion. Therefore, a greater and opposite force is required. Hope is for a future, based solely upon the actions of the past and the present.
  6. Hope that the ‘other’ party will get its act together will not work! Things moving in one direction have the tendency of continuing to move in the same direction. An equal and opposite force would only stop the motion. Therefore, a greater and opposite force is required. Hope is for a future, based solely upon the actions of the past and the present. Fear of voter reprisal may make some temporary changes, but it is not a person, persons or party that are solely responsible, it is a corrupt, corrupting and corruptible “system” that must be torn down and ripped out of OUR republic!
  7. Remaining divided and work for self, other causes, parties and candidates, will not work! While issues, methods and the qualifications of a person, persons or party may be important, if WE the People are divided, WE are divided. Any solution in order for it to be implemented requires an overwhelming majority of WE the People united, in order for OUR will to be recognized.

    How to Seat a Sovereign State Governor

    February 23, 2010

    HOW can WE the People regain control of OUR right to “life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness? WE have delved into what won’t work in order to find what will work.

    Here is where we are so far:

    The List (simplified)

    8.   Establish a new service to restore OUR rights to “Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness” – WE are working on this Now!

    Today: How to Seat a Sovereign State Governor

    Last time WE saw that each one of US, WE the People have sovereign and unalienable rights, rights which cannot be taken or forfeited. This by sheer logic would make OUR states sovereign and our country. These are the facts and they are undisputed. The key to all of this is the recognition of these undisputed facts, first by US, WE the People, and then by the government. The day this occurs, the corrupt, corrupting and corruptible system surrounding OUR republic will begin to be dismantled, then torn down and then, ripped out. It begins with me and thee (you), WE the People recognizing these “self evident truth,” then empowering or re-empowering OUR individual and sovereign states to recognize them and all the way to the president of these states united. This empowerment or re-empowerment begins with seating original jurisdiction governors, in OUR several sovereign states. How do WE the People do this?

    Vote for a sovereign and component state governor,

    in the next election where you are a citizen resident!

    WE already vote (many of US do anyway) for a governor about every four years. So this is not a matter of voting, but HOW WE vote and that OUR votes are recognized.

    What would you think if I was to tell you that according to one organization from their website (last posted to in 12/09), claims that there are about 41 states with original jurisdiction governors that have already been seated?

    How valid are these claims? Some have considered this organization as another promoter of conspiracy theories. Some think they are in existence to make a profit from their subscribers through the sale of newsletters, books, tapes and other items. Unless you know what organization I am referring to here, you probably don’t know what organization I am referring to. This is the point and the point is, RECOGNITION. Repeatedly throughout this blog I have refused to blame any individual, persons or party for the corrupt, corrupting and corruptible system that has woven itself into OUR flag, OUR republic. I am not about to start laying blame.  I don’t care about who, what, where and when this system happened to lay a stranglehold on OUR republic. I just want the system torn down and ripped out!

    WE the People hold all the power.

    WE do not transfer power.

    WE empower the functions of and the servants for our republic. OUR country is a republic and each state in OUR country is a republic. A republic is based on the rule of law. The way OUR Constitutions (state and national) are written, divide the functions of government into three branches – executive, legislative and judiciary. The executive does not make or control law; it is controlled by law to execute law. The legislative branch is controlled by law. It makes law, but it does not execute or judge the law. The judiciary is controlled by law. It does not execute the law or make law. Basic rule of laws here I know, and maybe this is all so elementary to you. I have written these things not because you do not know them, but because you do and as a reminder for all of US, WE the People.

    The head, chief or top (bottom) executive servant in OUR individual and sovereign state is the governor. This office is key position to seating the state’s national representatives, the U.S. senators, the president and vice president of the United States and the U.S. Supreme Court. See:

    The Most Important Person

    What is most important in this process is not necessarily who WE vote for as governor, as it is HOW WE vote and that the governor is recognized as the sovereign state governor of OUR particular state.

    Recognition of the governor is really a matter of numbers. This is the democratic process of OUR republic. Recognition is tied to numbers, a majority of votes cast for the office WE the People are electing to serve US in this capacity.

    According to national election results in 2008, there were approximately 305 million people living in the United State. Of these, about 231 million were of legal age to vote. Roughly 132 million or a little over ½ of the population able to vote, voted in the election. The results were nearly split in half across party lines (52 Democrat – 46 Republican) with other candidates and ‘write-in’ votes receiving about 2% of the vote. This was the largest voter turnout in 40 years or since 1968. Clearly, a larger number of US were energized to exercise OUR power to vote. But what else does this information show?

    WE the People have often heard or read about ‘mandates.’ Mandates are like a messages being sent loud and clear, for the recognition of the will of, WE the People.

    But excuse me, when I was growing up, 52% of anything wasn’t even a passing grade in school. So 50 (something) percent, of the eligible voting population, is hardly a mandate. It is clear that whenever a larger number of people turn out to vote, something or some things, have hit a nerve. That’s a good thing, but what about the rest that could have voted that did not? And the rest by the way, were millions of people, nearly half of the voting population which did not vote. Truly numbers are important.

    I am confident that there were legitimate reasons as to why some did not vote. But no one can even convince me that ½ of OUR eligible voters all had legitimate reasons not to vote! So what about the rest? Did they not care or was it not important enough to them to vote? Did they not believe their votes would matter? I don’t care! What was was. What is, is, and what will be, will be. My concern and yours should be the present and the future of US, WE the People and OUR posterity!

    What could possibly be more important than voting for OUR sovereign and unalienable rights, OUR Liberty? Would it be OUR perceived entitlements? Only you can answer the question for yourself. But for me, even entitlements would cease where liberty is absent!

    “They who can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety.”

    Benjamin Franklin

    Numbers matter and each one of US, WE the People matter! Let US look at some history where numbers mattered.

    In 1776, The Declaration of Independence was signed by unanimous agreement. Each signer as a representative was empowered by the People to sign this document. The purpose, intent and example of US, WE the People, than unanimous consent!

    Now I am not suggesting that WE the People all agree to vote for a certain person, persons or party, but history has shown that if the issues are important enough to US, WE the People could unanimously all agree. I am not suggesting that every single eligible voter will vote, only that it is possible and that certainly, if they knew the stakes and their individual power, a greater number would! WE need to be recognized! Numbers matter. WE the People need to send a message (a mandate) loud and clear, that WE the People are voting for OUR sovereign rights in sovereign states, for sovereign governors in OUR sovereign country!

    Since Declaration of Independence was brought up before, let US look at HOW the signers voted as well as all of those that signed the Constitution of 1789.

    How did all of these individuals that signed the above documents cast their votes? Their votes were their signatures and they were made public. What is a vote? According to the dictionary a vote as a noun is defined as follows:

    1. a formal expression of opinion or choice, either positive or negative, made by an individual or body of individuals.

    2. the means by which such expression is made, as a ballot, ticket, etc.

    Origin: 1425–75; late ME (n.) < L vōtum a vow

    Random House Dictionary, © Random House, Inc. 2010

    So to vote, WE the People make a vow that WE are who WE say WE are and that the vote WE cast is truly OUR will. To vote implies the means of voting which is by ballot, ticket and etc. It is the abbreviated word etcetera, “etc.” I have emphasized and would like to call your attention to. Etcetera is, a number of things or persons unspecified.

    Normally when WE think of voting, an image appears in OUR minds of a booth with a curtain. As we enter, WE notice a large handle. Once this has been moved, the curtain closes for privacy. Inside, there is usually some type of board with names and selections with a little lever near each one. As the levers are moved, OUR selections are made. After double checking to make sure, WE have selected all the choices and made the choices we want, WE move a large handle which punches holes in our ballot and opens the curtain for the next voter. Although there are other methods of casting votes, this method is usually the one that is used in OUR country.

    All of the methods of voting have been designed for the sake of convenience, security and privacy. Privacy, yes, as OUR votes are made in private. With the exception of writing in a candidate which WE can always legally do, the names and issues have been provided for US to vote on. Now let me ask US each two questions. Where is it written in OUR laws that OUR votes must be made private? It does not exist! Have you ever seen a ballot where you can vote for a sovereign anyone or anything? That does not exist either!

    So to have OUR votes recognized for a sovereign state governor, WE the People must do the following:

    1. WE the People must be informed as to exactly what WE are voting for. WE are voting for OUR sovereign and unalienable rights and for OUR choice for OUR sovereign state governor.
    2. WE the People must exercise OUR power, by sending a message loud a clear, a mandate, an overwhelming recognition by the overwhelming majority of US, WE the People, by casting OUR votes.
    3. WE the People must indicate through OUR voting, exactly what and for whom WE the People are voting for.
    4. WE the People must vote in public, for all to see!

    What are WE the People to vote for – OUR sovereign and unalienable rights! HOW

    Vote for a sovereign and component state governor, [in public]

    in the next election where you are a citizen resident!

    So HOW do WE the People vote in public and why should WE?

    The solution has been given! What remains to be seen is HOWWE the People can apply the solution. It too, is really quite simple. It will not take forever or even a lifetime. It will only take a small amount of time and your direct participation. It may be difficult, but WE can do it IF, WE the People so will to do it. Do WE so will?

    What may seem as insurmountable odds in regaining control of our liberties may appear hopeless, but there is an answer! Stay tuned here as we continue with…

    Today: Recognition of OUR Sovereign Rights

    Over and over throughout this blog, we have repeatedly seen the words: “our,” ”us,” and “we,” always CAPITALIZED in italics, in bold and colored red or blue to emphasize  the real power source in this country and that is US, WE the People! WE must each recognize our individual sovereign rights, the sovereign rights of our individual state and both need to be recognized by government.

    The issue of sovereign rights is nothing new. Several states have pushed for or are in process of pushing for sovereign rights. This is one cause which led to the separation of states in the 1860’s. In modern times, sovereign rights have been argued primarily under the ‘Commerce Clause’ of the U.S. Constitution. These efforts have failed and will fail. For reference to this, go back into this blog for the series on:

    ‘Challenging the Commerce Clause’

    Other states have or are in process of pushing for ‘state rights’ or sovereign rights based on the 10th Amendment (part of the ‘Bill of Rights’) from the Constitution.

    U.S. Constitution

    Amendment X

    “The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.”

    U.S. Constitution, Amendment X

    The problem with this argument is from the amendments and other laws, and executive orders which have been added to OUR government since 1865. The courts interpret, the laws circumvent and the amendments though they do appear in the constitution; they appear constitutional, and they appear to have been ratified by a majority of the states, they are not constitutional! This is all legal fiction and part of a corrupt, corruptible and corrupting system.

    I am not about to blame any person, persons or party for this corrupt, corrupting and corruptible system. It just is, what it is! Whether this system in part or in full was put into motion knowingly or unintentionally or with good intentions or otherwise, I DON’T CARE! And I don’t care for two reasons:

    1. This is about re-storing, re-engineering (or whatever you want to call this) OUR republic.
    2. WE already have all the sovereign rights WE will ever need, so this is all about recognition of OUR sovereign rights.

    So HOW do WE do this? Are you ready for the answer; the solution? Will you believe, accept and act on it, even though it is so very simple? Well, here it comes.

    Vote for a sovereign and component state governor,

    in the next election where you are a citizen resident!

    That’s it? That’s the solution? I have said all along that it was really simple. Now before you get mad and write some angry comment as to why it has taken all this time; all these many posts in this blog, just to write that one sentence, remember these two things:

    1. To recognize a fake, WE must first recognize the original, the real deal.
    2. I have said this was simple, not easy. It will take some time and the direct participation on the part of all of US, WE the People.

    WE the people must recognize the original and that is the sovereign rights of both the individual and the several states. WE the People must recognize the power WE each and united together, possess. This is OUR republic; this is the original, and this is the real deal.

    Knowing these unalienable sovereign rights and that, “WE hold these truths to be self evident,” WE the People can recognize the fake, the legal fiction, the corrupt, corrupting and corruptible system. NOW WE the People need to play or contend by the rules of the system, in order to tear it down and rip it out.

    Newton’s 3 Laws of Motion, Baseball, Legal Fiction & WE the People

    1. An object at rest will remain at rest unless acted on by an unbalanced force. An object in motion continues in motion with the same speed and in the same direction unless acted upon by an unbalanced force. This law is often called “the law of inertia.” A baseball lying in the grass just lays there without motion. Legal Fiction just lies over OUR republic as there is little or no resistance to it, as if WE didn’t know WE could roll the baseball.There is a natural tendency of objects (legal fiction and US, WE the People), to keep on doing what they’re doing. All objects resist changes (legal fiction and US, WE the People) in their state of motion. In the absence of an unbalanced force, an object  or objects (legal fiction and US, WE the People) in motion, will maintain this state of motion.
    2. Acceleration is produced when a force acts on a mass. WE roll the ball in the grass, WE recognize legal fiction, a fake, a corrupt system and take action. The grass (legal fiction, the fake, the corrupt system) produces friction (resistance) and stops the motion of the ball. The greater the mass (of the object being accelerated) the greater the amount of force is needed (to accelerate the object). There is no greater force than US, WE the People united!
    3. For every action there is an equal and opposite re-action. This means that for every force there is a reaction force that is equal in size, but opposite in direction. That is to say that whenever an object pushes another object it gets pushed back in the opposite direction equally hard. Legal fiction, the fake and corrupt system picks up the ball and throws it at US. WE the People pick up a bat, and knock the ball out of the park with bases loaded. Grand slam homerun, 9th inning, game over and WE the People win! What was the bat? OUR unalienable and sovereign rights! What was the force so great that the ball was knocked out of the park? The force was and always will be, WE the People, of the sovereign states united!

    Again, the solution (the bat) is to…

    …vote for a sovereign and component state governor,

    in the next election where you are a citizen resident!

    The HOW to seat a sovereign governor is like learning how to swing the bat. It may be difficult and take some time, but the force behind the bat, is the direct participation of, WE the People.

    By the way, the baseball is OUR republic. The playing field is OUR country. The bat belongs to US, WE the People and WE the People make the rules! Guess who will win? But WE have to show up and WE have to play to win.

    The grand slam home run is also like dominoes. Once WE seat OUR sovereign state governors, all will automatically ‘fall’ into place. By default or as a direct result, all OUR national representatives and senators will become a Constitutional Congress. The president and executive branch will become a Constitutional Executive branch. And the judiciary will become a Constitutional Judiciary Branch. The order of OUR republic, OUR sovereign states’ rights and OUR sovereign unalienable rights will be recognized for the first time, since 1861!

    The solution has been given! What remains to be seen is HOW; WE the People can apply the solution. It too, is really quite simple. It will not take forever or even a lifetime. It will only take a small amount of time and your direct participation. It may be difficult, but WE can do it IF, WE the People so will to do it. Do WE so will?

    What may seem as insurmountable odds in regaining control of our liberties may appear hopeless, but there is an answer! Stay tuned here as we continue with…

    How to Restore, WE the People!

    HOW can WE the People regain control of OUR right to “life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness? WE have delved into what won’t work in order to find what will work.

    Here is where we are so far:

    The List (simplified)

    1.   Overthrow the government by a military coup or para-military militias?

    2.   The 9/12 Project?

    3.   ‘The Commerce Clause?

    4.   Convening a Constitutional Congress

    5.   Hope that the present circumstances will change and the will of WE the People will be implemented?

    6.   Hope that the other party will get its act together and produce the necessary changes for WE the People in future elections?

    7.   Remain divided and work for self, other causes, parties and candidates?

    8.   Establish a new service to restore OUR rights to “Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness” – WE are working on this Now!

    Today: How To Restore WE the People

    WE the People in order to form a more perfect union…,” must understand that it is a corrupt, corrupting and corruptible system which has undermined OUR republic, ever since 1861. WE the People must understand that this system started at the Executive Branch of the federal government and worked downward through the Legislative and Judiciary Branches, to the once sovereign states and finally, to WE the People. WE the People must understand that OUR republic began with WE the people, and a corrupt system worked downward to WE the People. WE the People must understand that WE need to work backwards or reverse engineer OUR republic. WE the People must understand that OUR republic still exists. WE the People must understand that OUR republic started with US, WE the People and it can only be restored by US, WE the People!

    How do WE the People restore OUR republic? The answer is so simple and it begins with US, WE the People!

    WE the People with unalienable rights (rights which cannot be taken or forfeited) decided to secure those rights for all of US, WE the people. WE would form a bond, a union. The forefathers and foremothers of US, WE the People of 13 colonies in 1776, decided individually, mutually and together to appoint, designate or vote for certain servants to represent US in the Continental Congress. The separate and individual colonies voluntarily decided and unanimously declared OUR independence.

    One could certainly view the bonds formed were compulsory and out of fear that unless they were united together, they would fall separately. My view is that those decisions were of wisdom knowing that unless they united they would fall. And the decisions to unite were from bonds stronger than fear. For what other reason, than the mutual love of independence and liberty, would they have united against an enemy so formidable that they had little if any chance of defeating? But unite they did and win they did!

    After securing OUR individual and unified independence, WE the People voluntarily formed individual, separate and independent, sovereign states. Once again, WE the People sent representatives to serve OUR will, to the Constitutional Congress. By 1789, WE the people of the several sovereign and independent states voluntarily entered into a union (one by one) of a republic around a Constitution, with limited powers granted to a central government. Each separate, individual and sovereign state had its own voluntary constitution; its own constitutional republic, by the will of its own people.

    “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. — That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, — That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.”

    Excerpt from: The Declaration of Independence

    OUR first Constitution was a confederation. OUR second was a federation. By definition the difference between a confederation and a federation is that the membership of the member states in a confederation is voluntary, while the membership in a federation is not. This definition and this assumption are FALSE within the confines of OUR republic; OUR Constitutional government. The federalists argued with the anti-federalists over this very thing in the 1700’s and it also invariably led to the formation of the Confederation of States, from the so called American Civil War.

    WE do have a federation, a federal republic and OUR Constitution is the supreme law of OUR country. WE do have a democratic republic. A democracy is the rule by majority whereas a republic is the rule by law. So how could these seemingly contradictory elements possibly coexist or be in harmony? The answer is found first in OUR unalienable rights (rights which cannot be taken or forfeited) and government “deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed,” (WE the People.). All of these centers upon one single word ‘confer,’ as opposed to ‘transfer.’

    The individual is sovereign, endowed with certain unalienable rights. Therefore OUR states are sovereign and OUR country is a sovereign nation. Together, WE mutually and voluntarily agreed to form a union among US of the separate and sovereign, component states. WE sent servant representatives to represent US. WE mutually and voluntarily agreed to a Constitution and to form a government with limited powers, and separate branches to secure OUR unalienable rights. To expedite matters, WE voluntarily agreed to settle many of OUR disagreements by the principles of democracy or by a majority. WE have transferred none of OUR individual rights, those rights which cannot be taken or forfeited, to anyone or to any thing! WE have simply conferred certain powers to be executed by the government, by the consent (permission, will etc.) of the governed which is US, WE the People.

    Originally in OUR first Constitution, the Articles of Confederation stated that to change the Constitution, all member states had to unanimously agree. Another distinction was that if the central government needed anything, from the separate, sovereign and component states like taxes etc., the central government would have to ask for it. Yet another distinction between OUR first and second Constitution was the idea of a perpetual union.  There are other differences between the two constitutions, but for now, WE are focusing on these three. But all the distinctions between the two constitutions, proceed from the individual unalienable rights and the consent of the governed which is US, WE the People!

    Imagine a national election. Would WE the People all agree on the same person to become president? Can you imagine that if under invasion by some foreign entity that the sovereign states could unanimously act in time to respond? Could you imagine the government, in order to fund the response to such an invasion, having to wait until the sovereign states all unanimously and voluntarily agreed to provide the funds? Would these things be impossible, No! Is it probable that WE would not all voluntarily agree or act in time, Yes! So here are some practical applications where a democratic republic could continue to function, while still securing OUR individual and sovereign rights.

    In the first Constitution, the government would need to ask US for money and each of the sovereign states by the consent of those sovereign citizen governments would have to voluntarily agree, but they could also voluntarily disagree. In OUR second Constitution, it is more like OUR government just sends a bill, which WE the People have voluntarily and mutually agreed to pay.

    The ideas of a perpetual union were stricken from OUR second Constitution and would logically allow secession among the several states. How can I write these things?

    In the preamble to our Constitution it states clearly the following:

    “…in Order to form a more perfect Union

    The constitution was not considered the document of a perfect union, but “a more perfect union.” If it was not a perfect union, why should it remain a perpetual union? That is neither its intent nor its purpose!

    Read the above excerpt to The Declaration of Independence again. Then read the following, also from the same document.

    “But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.”

    Excerpt from: The Declaration of Independence

    Whose “right” and whose “duty” (responsibility) is it, “to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security?” It is the right and the responsibility of US, WE the people.

    So here WE have the reconciliation of seemingly contradictory words, phrases and concepts as: Confederation, Federation, Republic, Democracy, and Sovereign. All these have proceeded out of the People, by the People and for the People! The rights of the individual are unalienable. They can not be taken, forfeited, transferred or even conferred. WE the People do not transfer or confer rights. Privileges and even some freedoms can be transferred and these are inalienable rights, not unalienable rights.

    What is an inalienable right? For example, years ago Coors beer was only available in Colorado and in Kansas. If you lived in a border state, you had the freedom, the privilege and the inalienable right to buy beer in Colorado or Kansas and take it to your state for consumption, but not for sale. Now one can purchase Coors Beer from wherever it is sold (provided that you are of legal age to purchase it). The only difference is the price difference based on taxes and the law of supply and demand (whatever the market will bear) and what the seller can get for it. By the way, Miller Brewing Company of Milwaukee, Wisconsin now owns Coors, but that’s another story.

    WE the People confer power, limited powers to governments to secure the blessing of liberty to ourselves and our posterity. This is the only thing that may be construed as being perpetual, OUR unalienable rights!

    It has only been through crisis (real or perceived) and interpretation of OUR laws that WE the People have experienced more power being executed by our governments, over the past many years and especially, since 1861. It must be clear, one last time that governments derive their just powers by OUR consent, OUR mutual, voluntary and individual consent. This nation did NOT begin and does NOT continue without US, WE the people! Above all, each of US, WE the People have unalienable rights. Each of US, WE the People are equal and therefore each equally powerful! Do I understand this power? Do you? Do WE, understand this power?

    If you and I and If WE the People understand OUR individual and unified power because of OUR unalienable rights, then the HOW to Restore, WE the People rests upon sovereign rights!

    In a sense, WE do not need to restore US, WE the People. It is more of recognition of what WE already have. What WE already have cannot be restored in the concept of restoring something that is damaged, altered, changed or missing. Sovereign rights, no matter how they are defined, are rights. They are OUR rights! Whether these sovereign rights have come from a monarch, by God, or by default as the rights were just always in existence, they are still rights. They are unalienable and sovereign rights that cannot be taken, forfeited, transferred or conferred, with or without OUR consent! If this were not true, they would not be unalienable rights, they would be inalienable rights which could be taken, forfeited, transferred or conferred. But they are not!

    As this nation of sovereign individuals that mutually and voluntarily agreed to form sovereign states united, to mutually and voluntarily form a sovereign nation constituted, it so continues or can be changed by WE the People, if WE the People so will.

    From 1776, empowerment of, by and for the people went up to government – limited. From 1861, legal fiction empowerment went down from the government to the people with seemingly power unlimited. Where it stands right now is with US, WE the People. It is OUR right and OUR responsibility to send the message of, by, and for the People that governments works for US. WE do not work for the government. This is the recognition of OUR individual and sovereign unalienable rights. And it begins again where it has always been, with each one of US, WE the People. It begins with the recognition of our individual sovereign rights in the sovereign state where WE live and with the governor of OUR sovereign state. This is the solution. It is so very simple. If you recall or look at a previous post, it has already been brought up. See:

    The Most Important Person

    So what is involved in the recognition of OUR sovereign rights? It is nothing different than what WE the People already do and that is, WE vote. But the distinction here is not what particular person or party WE vote for, but what office and how. The office is the governor of OUR particular state. The how is by voting for this governor to be the governor of OUR sovereign, individual and component state. How do WE the People do that? The point here is not necessarily to change the person, persons or party WE the People vote for or when WE vote, but HOW WE vote. The HOW is that our votes are recognized as sovereign citizens for a sovereign governor of OUR separate, sovereign, individual state, among the states voluntarily united in OUR republic.

    For a long time now, I have promised you that what WE can do about all of this and HOW to do it is coming! I have in part, kept my promise in this post of this blog. Is this too simple? WE rarely believe, trust or accept simplicity, in the complex world in which WE live. Are WE ready to believe, trust and accept a simple solution, to re-forming “a more perfect union?”

    The solution has been given! What remains to be seen is HOW; WE the People can apply the solution. It too, is really quite simple. It will not take forever or even a lifetime. It will only take a small amount of time and your direct participation. It may be difficult, but WE can do it IF, WE the People so will to do it. Do WE so will?

    What may seem as insurmountable odds in regaining control of our liberties may appear hopeless, but there is an answer! Stay tuned here as we continue with…

    Re-Forming “a more perfect union”

    HOW can WE the People regain control of OUR right to “life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness? WE have delved into what won’t work in order to find what will work.

    Here is where we are so far:

    The List (simplified)

    1.   Overthrow the government by a military coup or para-military militias?

    2.   The 9/12 Project?

    3.   ‘The Commerce Clause?

    4.   Convening a Constitutional Congress

    5.   Hope that the present circumstances will change and the will of WE the People will be implemented?

    6.   Hope that the other party will get its act together and produce the necessary changes for WE the People in future elections?

    7.   Remain divided and work for self, other causes, parties and candidates?

    8.   Establish a new service to restore OUR rights to “Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness” – WE are working on this Now!

    Today: Re-Forming “a more perfect union”

    All throughout this blog, I have taken great pains and time and perhaps your liberties, in trying to expose a corrupt, corrupting and corruptible system and what has been tried or is being tried, in order to remove it.

    Analogies of this system have been compared with Alice in Wonderland, the virtual world of the Matrix, as a trap, reverse engineering and with such words as fake, false, non-real and even non-constitutional. All of these analogies and words may be understood under the term, ‘Legal Fiction,’ because this is what it is!

    Based on the premise that WE the People sense or feel that something is wrong or amiss in our system of government, this blog has endeavored to show what some have tried or are doing about this system, and why these efforts have failed or will ultimately fail. Here is a summary of these efforts and why they will not work:

    1.  To try and overthrow the government will not work because of the military. The military is under the command of the Commander and Chief, the President of the United States. As WE have seen and according to ‘Legal Fiction’ and non-constitutional laws under the essential acts of Martial Law, there has not been a constitutional president and therefore, no constitutional commander and chief of the military, since 1861.

    2.  The 9.12 Project will not work because even though it has helped to draw attention to problems and have helped to remove corrupt persons and practices, on September 12, 2001, OUR bonds were more formed over fear from what happened to this nation on September 11, 2001. WE the People need to become Un-divided and bond together for principle; OUR republic and not from fear.

    3.  Challenging the ‘Commerce Clause’ in the Constitution won’t work, because the Judiciary Branch of government has for years, interpreted the original intent of this clause, have always sided with their own decisions when challenged and both the Judiciary Branch of government and the “district” states are under the jurisdiction of the federal government, the Executive Branch and ultimately, the president.

    4.  Convening a Constitutional Congress won’t work, because it is not possible from a practical standpoint alone, to amend the 100’s and 1,000’s of other laws not in the Constitution affecting, effecting and infecting OUR republic nor does it address the cause, which is, a corrupt, corrupting and corruptible “system.”

    5.  To just hope that things will change on their own won’t work, because what is in motion generally continues to stay in motion. The whole purpose of change is to change, not to keep things they way they are or to just hope they change.

    6.   To hope that the other party will get its act together won’t work, because knowingly or not, they are part of a corrupt system. It’s the system that must be removed, not necessarily a person, persons or party.

    7.  To remain divided and work for self, other causes, parties and candidates wont work, because anything that keeps US divided, divides US. Besides that, until WE the People can see the problem, WE cannot see the solution?

    8.  Establish a new service to restore OUR rights to “Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness” – WE are working on this Now!

    Each of the above 1-7 items are actually important as to re-forming “a more perfect union.” They are parts of the whole. As parts, each only addresses parts of the problem which is, a corrupt, corrupting and corruptible system. #8 which is where we are now, is the re-forming of “a more perfect union.” I did not write re-forming a perfect union and neither did the Constitution from which these words were written. It was “a more perfect union,” in the original. If they would have meant to form a perfect union, they would have written, a perfect union.

    The words are a figure of speech which gives emphasis to the goal of perfection which all should strive for, even though perfection is not possible by imperfect beings. If these words were literal they would make no sense because, you cannot make something more perfect that is already perfect. It is like another familar figure of speech – “Practice makes perfect.” If that were a literal statement, one would logically have to have, perfect practice.

    But WE the People need to get back to the goal of, the formation or the forming of “a more perfect union.” To do this, WE the People need to re-form “a more perfect union.” To understand this, imagine the following:

    Let’s say its movie night at your house. You decide to have some ice cream only it is rock hard in your freezer. You remove the round quart from the freezer, take the lid off, place it into a pan and leave it for awhile to soften. Next you return to your movie and it’s a really good one. You become engrossed in the story and by the time you remember the ice cream it has totally melted. Unknown to you was a small hole at the bottom of the container. The melted ice cream leaked through the hole. Fortunately you had the foresight to place the container into a pan. As the ice cream leaked from the container it had filled up inside the pan. You pick up the ice cream carton, wipe it off, find and patch the hole. Next, you pour the melted ice cream from the pan back into the carton, replace the lid and stick it back into the freezer to re-freeze – to re-form.

    All the parts of OUR republic remain. WE the People just need to re-form “a more perfect union.” OUR independence started with US, WE the People. Our country, our Constitution began with US, WE the People. The corrupt, corrupting and corruptible system started at the Executive branch of government and worked its way down to US, WE the People. The system will end when WE the People work backwards (reverse engineer) where it started in 1776 and 1789 which is US, WE the People. So HOW do WE the People re-form “a more perfect union?” The answer is so simple it will absolutely amaze you!!!! Simple Yes! Easy, No!

    For a long time now, I have promised you that what WE can do about all of this and HOW to do it is coming! I will keep my promise to you in the very next post. Yes it has taken perhaps, a lot of time to reach this point. My intentions have never been to lead you on or to withhold the solution, though I have known it for some time. WE the People just need to sense that something is wrong in OUR republic and WE need to know exactly what it is. This “it” is, a corrupt, corrupting and corruptible system. Besides all of that, WE rarely believe, trust or accept simplicity, in the complex world in which WE live. Are WE ready to believe, trust and accept a simple solution, to re-forming “a more perfect union?”

    The solution is on the way! It is really quite simple. It will not take forever or even a lifetime. It will only take a small amount of time and the direct participation of WE the People. It may be difficult, but WE can do it IF, WE the People so will to do it. Do WE so will?

    What may seem as insurmountable odds in regaining control of our liberties may appear hopeless, but there is an answer! Stay tuned here as we continue with…

    Today: Freebies & Pay-bees.

    Last time WE saw that IF, WE the People, devote ourselves to working solely for ourselves, other causes, candidates and parties, it is to no profit in restoring OUR Liberty and cannot work, for WE remain divided.

    WE live in; have grown up in – a digital world of cut & paste, drag and drop, right-clicks with a mouse, downloads and uploads and the many products and services, catered to me-myself-and-i. WE are accustomed to, used to and most always expect much, to be FREE.

    Daily, WE are bombarded with vast amounts of information – visually, audibly and textually. OUR interest, the content and the time WE have available, will determine how much WE will give of our resources and OUR time. WE are accustomed to, used to and most always expect much, to be FREE.

    Most of US recognize the following symbols and understand their meaning:

    © ® ™

    These are Copyrights, Registration marks and Trademarks. They are seen almost everywhere and on everything. But they are like locks on doors; only as good as, the occupant’s ability to secure the contents and the honor of those outside the door, to respect the owner’s privacy and property. There is no foolproof lock which can prevent intent to find an opportunity and to exploit some vulnerability! There is no crime committed without intent, opportunity and vulnerability!

    Have you ever seen an ‘honor box,’ a little cardboard box filled with snacks, where you take what you want and place the money to pay for it in a slot?

    These ‘honor boxes’ are often found in places of businesses and institutions as a service to employees, customers and clients, when space and/or costs prohibit the use of a vending machine. I have removed the money from several of these boxes and it has never equaled the amount due, for the items taken. It was always less. Sure, you could accuse me of pocketing some of the money, you would be incorrect, but you have the right to think that I did. I’m sure some people did not have the right amount of money at the time and forgot to come back. I even found fake money that was placed there intentionally or from an honest mistake. Maybe they didn’t know it wasn’t real? There is no doubt in my mind that some people are either just ignorant or stupid, taking whatever they want because they think it’s FREE. And then there are those that have no intention of paying, just taking. But no matter what the reasons for the shortage, someone, usually the employer or provider of the honor box, still had to make up the difference.

    But WE are accustomed to, used to and most always expect much, to be FREE.

    WE see sales and trials and use FREE coupons, 2-for-1’s, BOGO (buy-one-get-one), FREE food, FREE products and services, almost every day and nearly everywhere.

    Advertising, marketing, publicity, promotion or whatever you want to call this stuff, all pretty much do the same thing. They are designed to attract attention to people, products and services.

    A writer writes something – an article, poem, presentation, book etc. A web designer designs a webpage or a blog. An artist produces some kind of artwork. A musician writes a song, a composer composes, a dancer dances and the local burger shop has French fries too. And on and on and so forth…

    …each I of WE the People do whatever it is that WE do and whatever it is that WE do, takes time, some amount of effort and the expenditure of OUR available resources.

    For this, WE expect something in return. This is usually money.

    Money is nothing more than an exchange between parties, for a product or service. Perhaps a long time ago, the house-call-doctor received a chicken for their service. Maybe the local minister was fed by, clothed and housed by their congregation, for spiritual service rendered to the community. WE trade, WE barter, WE exchange time for money or something, for products and services.

    But WE are accustomed to, used to and most always expect much, to be FREE.

    So WE read, watch, look, listen, touch, taste and smell whatever WE are interested in and that is available to US. WE copy, cut, paste, drag and drop, right-click, download and upload whatever is out there. I have long understood that there is no such thing as security on the Internet, anywhere or for anything! It all comes down to the ‘honor box.’ The honor box is the FREE advertising that draws attention to the persons, products and services in the box. The slot is to pay for the stuff, and it is left to the individual, to do the honorable thing.

    There is an exchange between the givers or providers of something and the recipients. This is time. It takes time to provide and give something and it takes OUR time in receiving it. But WE usually do not take or make the time, and WE usually do not pay for something unknown.

    Read an article, watch a movie, listen to something, sample something all for FREE and then what? Are WE done? Has the time WE have spent in taking this stuff equal to the time it took to provide it? Have WE paid for it in full? The answer is often no. So then what? What are WE do, what else is required of US?

    If WE have enjoyed something, if WE have appreciated it; if it has mattered to US in some way, what about a simple thank you, a comment or even a critique without being critical, as to how it could be improved? What about sharing it with others? What about paying for it to help such people providing such things and services, to continue?

    But WE are accustomed to, used to and most always expect much, to be FREE.

    Deep down, each 1 of WE the People know that there is, nothing in life for FREE! Someone or something has paid the price. The Liberty and the freedom we enjoy in this country were and are FREE, but to maintain these gifts, to secure these gifts, it has been paid for, often by blood, sweat, tears and lives.

    WE each came into this world naked; so shall we leave this world. WE enter in and exit out with only the gifts of Life, Liberty, and the right to the Pursuit of Happiness. But when these rights are re-written as privileges, OUR lives, liberties and the pursuits of that which makes us individually happy, are based upon our ability to pay for them and given to US , by the few that control it and allow it.

    What WE freely take without paying for, WE will forfeit in the future. What WE forfeit is taken from US!

    “I remain as free as nature first made man. Ere the base laws of servitude began, when wild in the woods the naked savage ran.”

    for there is nothing in Life for FREE!

    What can each 1 of WE the People; what can WE the People do? What can unite US? How can WE the People, restore our rights to, “Life, Liberty and the Pursuit Happiness?”

    I have promised and will keep my promise. I promise you that what WE can do about all of this and HOW to do it is coming! WE are just one day or one post to this blog, away from the solution! It is really quite simple. It will not take forever or even a lifetime. It will only take a small amount of time and your direct participation. It may be difficult, but WE can do it IF, WE the People so will to do it. Do WE so will?

    What may seem as insurmountable odds in regaining control of OUR liberties may appear hopeless, but there is an answer! Stay tuned here as we continue.

    HOW can WE the People regain control of Our right to “life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness?” WE have been delving into what won’t work in order to find what will work. So far:

    The List (simplified)

    1.   Overthrow the government by a military coup or para-military militias?

    2.   The 9/12 Project?

    3.   Challenge ‘The Commerce Clause’? WE are here

    WE are still dealing with challenging the Commerce Clause. Before the series concludes WE must first understand ten years in OUR history when history was re-written.

    Today – Un-founding the U.S.A., springing the trap (conclusion)

    Springing the Trap

    After the conclusion of the Un-Civil Conflict in 1865 and with Congress back at work screwing over WE the People with amendments 13, 14 and 15 up to 1870, there was a lot of work that needed to be done, to physically reconstruct the country.

    Just in case you think socialism or communism is cool consider this. At the conclusion of this terrible conflict, there was no wealth to distribute to the poor or to them which had not or little. Pretty much no one had anything to distribute to anyone! If I had it, I could have given to you or you could have just taken a chicken, but my hen house was destroyed. I could have had lots of money in the bank, but the bank was burnt to the ground. I could have stuffed a lot of extra money in my mattress, but my house was blown up. Do you get my point?

    Both the North and the South were reeling in great losses of life, property, resources and finances. And this included even the wealthy and those of means. What was needed to re-build was capital – money and a lot of it. Where was it to come from? The simple answer was banks and from those who amassed great fortunes in loaning money to both the North and the South during all the years of the struggle. Some of these banks, bankers and people of wealth were living in this country and loaning money to both sides! So what, it’s just business right? But a lot of money was needed. Where else could it come from? World banks and foreign investors would come to the rescue of the United States, but not without collateral and compounded interest to secure those loans and to ‘sweeten’ the deals for them.

    Behind closed doors, secret deals were made. Ultimately, the “good faith of the United States,” would mean nothing and the interest and the loans would be paid by WE the People. Banks just don’t loan money to anyone. They take calculated risks and those risks are offset by collateral and the means to repay the loan. Just because you have a history of repaying loans and on time, or you are a nice person, or a country, all of that means about nothing to a bank. Banks deal with contracts, agreements and legal documents as the means to re-coup at least the principle amount of the loan, should you default on the loan and with further iron-clad documents, which allow them the future interest payments on the principal, even if you defaulted. They could also go after your heirs.

    A deal is a deal and they are entitled to regain the principal and interest until satisfied. That’s like buying a house for 100 thousand dollars and paying it off in 30 years for 500,000 thousand dollars, SWEET! Sweet to the recipients that is. Most banks never want the loans to EVER be repaid. Why not? INTEREST! And compounded interest, what’s the formula there? Interest is determined by the risks involved in recovering the debt, how much they can get and what is allowed by law. Law, what law? Corporate law of the United States, Inc.

    So, in 1871, the 41st Congress passed a bill which would incorporate the District of Columbia. No big deal right as this area at the time was just about 10 square miles. The founders of OUR country named and chose Washington in the District of Columbia, as the location for the capitol of the United States. And why not, it was a territory and not a state or else it would have been favorable to a certain state over all the others. But in 1871, a loophole was exploited.

    CHAPTER 62, 1871 16 United States Statutes at Large 419 FORTY FIRST CONGRESS SESSION III . CHAPTER 62, 1871 CHAP. LXII. —

    “An act to provide a Government for the District of Columbia .

    Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United States in Congress assembled, That all that part of the territory of the United States included within the limits of the District of Columbia be, and the same is hereby, created into a government by the name of the District of Columbia, by which name it is hereby constituted a body corporate for municipal purposes, and may contract and be contracted with, sue and be sued, plead and be impleaded, have a seal, and exercise all other powers of a municipal corporation not inconsistent with the Constitution and laws of the United States and the provisions of this act.”

    The language of this act provides that the government of the District (the Federal Government) is a corporation, municipal in nature, but still a corporation. Furthermore, District citizens (United States citizens – U. S. citizens) will now be subject to corporation law as well as the laws of the Republic. See, I told you that the districts set up in 1861 and specifically by law in 1863, included all the former and once sovereign and component commonwealth states in the country. Therefore, the District of Columbia, Inc. became the seat of the United States, Inc.

    Corporate law is private law even though the corporation is municipal. Generally we are led to believe that these corporate laws are laws of the people, because they have came from Congress… they are not, they are private laws and can only be applied by contract. That is by our active consent!

    Have you signed or entered into any such contract? Oh, OUR representatives and senators acting on OUR behalf signed the contract for US right? Right and Wrong!! It is true they voted for this and therefore in essence signed the contract, but in order for a contract to be valid, it must be witnessed to and signed by ALL parities contracted by and with.

    Enfranchisement

    Shortly after incorporating, the United States municipal corporation enfranchised its citizens.

    “Enfranchisement. The act of making free (as from slavery); giving a franchise or freedom to; investiture with privileges or capacities of freedom, or municipal or political liberty. Conferring the privilege of voting upon classes of persons who have not previously possessed such. See also Franchise.” – [Blacks Law Dictionary, Sixth Edition]

    Notice that the Enfranchised citizen is granted municipal liberty. Not liberty as it was known and practiced in the Republic, but liberty as defined by the municipal Liberty:

    1. Freedom from an arbitrary or despotic government.
    2. Freedom from external or foreign rule.
    3. Freedom from captivity, confinement, etc.

    – Random House Dictionary-

    At Section 8, the Constitution states that “The Congress shall have power to… exercise exclusive legislation in all cases whatsoever, over such district (not exceeding ten miles square) as may, by cession of particular States, and the acceptance of Congress, become the seat of the Government of the United States…,” creating the District of Columbia, what we know as Washington, District of Columbia.

    How many of US realize this creates a jurisdiction over which Congress has exclusive legislative authority? WE were just told this in the language of the Constitution, but did WE understand it? If not, thank you department of education.

    And furthermore, do WE understand that this jurisdiction is not inclusive, to the Republic of the United States of America, it is EXCLUSIVE.

    This means that the jurisdiction that is the District of Columbia is a FOREIGN jurisdiction to that of the Republic of the United States of America.

    What this was talking about was not a state, but a former territory of the United States, now called a district, the District of Columbia or D.C. Furthermore, its power did not exceed beyond “ten miles square.” So how then does this jurisdiction exceed beyond the ten square miles? Look no further than the redistricting in 1861 and the Conscription Act of 1863, for therein is the answer. To understand this, I am reminded of a Biblical custom.

    According to Judaic law, on the Sabbath day, certain things were prohibited such as, no servile work was to be performed and animals were not to be used in the performance of servile work etc. Sabbath law even addressed travel. This is seen in the Bible as, “A Sabbath’s day’s journey.” This was a specific distance that one was allowed to travel from their property on the Sabbath Day, including their return trip home. Its intent was to allow the people to travel on the Sabbath to attend the synagogue or the temple. To circumvent or get around this law, a loophole was found and used. For example, just throw a bunch of pebbles from your property into a bag. At the boundary of the legal traveling distance on the Sabbath, all you had to do was drop a pebble (your property) and then you could just keep going in this manner, all throughout the Sabbath or until you ran out of pebbles. Of course the return trip was just matter of retracing your steps, from one of your pebbles (your property) to the next until you got back home.  Pretty silly is it not, but technically legal.

    So here, the constitution was not technically changed, it would just now include all the districts of 1861 and 1863. Then it became corporate law in a municipal setting by Congress in 1871.

    So the corporation had jurisdiction over all the states. It just needed to include all the citizens. Ooops, that’s right, I forgot, this was already done prior to 1871 in 1866 and completed in 1868.

    AMENDMENT XIV Passed by Congress June 13, 1866. Ratified July 9, 1868.

    Section 1.

    All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside. No State shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.”

    And there WE have it. Even though I live in a once sovereign and component commonwealth state (New York), and was born in a sovereign component commonwealth state (Missouri) until 1861, 1863 & 1871 specifically, and though the physical boundaries have not changed, I am residing presently according to this act of Congress, in a sub-corporation (New York State, Inc.), under the jurisdiction of the United States, Inc.

    Every single amendment to the Constitution since 1861, have all be UN-constitutional! Talk about treason, what was this act of congress in 1871? It overthrew (fictitiously of course) the government of WE the People and replaced it with an EXCLUSIVE (foreign) corporation.

    Have you ever held or seen either a silver or a gold certificate? Those used to be on all the paper money used in the United States as required in the original constitution. Paper money is a ‘bearer bond’ or instrument used for the exchange of goods and services and for the payment of debt, public or private. Upon demand it could be exchanged for silver or gold. Did you know that during the administration of Franklin Delano Roosevelt, owning gold was illegal? Did you know that was lifted by president Gerald Ford, but decades later? Did you know that silver and gold certificates were replaced with Federal Reserve notes? Can anyone tell me who owns the Federal Reserve Board or the Federal Reserve Banks? Well I can tell you this that a Federal Reserve note is still a bearer bond or instrument. It was thought that if you had some in your pocket, you are saying that you accept the contract of the United States, Inc. BUT a contract is invalid unless all parties are informed of the specifics of said contract and have signed it, knowingly! Did you know? Did you sign the contract or was it your representative? Sorry, but they cannot sign it for you!

    So what am I saying here? This is all legal fiction. It is like someone threw stolen property on your property and the police found it, so you are not only guilty of possessing stolen property, you are guilty of theft. This is like living inside the ‘Matrix’ or falling through the rabbit hole, in Alice’s Wonderland. It is fantasy, fake, bogus, false, not real – it does not exist! Unfortunately, inside this make-believe U.S.A., people get hurt, die, starve, live in fear, have no opportunity and even worse than all of that, just exist having given up the right to question, to think, to try and to care, as long as WE are fed and taken care of, for surely WE are entitled?

    But each 1 of WE have the right, the God-given right; the unalienable right to choose for ourselves. I don’t want anything from the United States, Inc. All that it has is all that it has taken and is taking from WE the People. I want the opportunity to stand up as a man upon my own two feet in my own boots, to fail or to succeed according to my abilities. May God give me the courage to cry aloud like Patrick Henry did, “Give me Liberty or give me death!”

    What may seem as insurmountable odds in regaining control of our liberties may appear hopeless, but there is an answer! Stay tuned here as we continue.

    Today – Un-founding the U.S.A., setting the trap

    Setting the Trap

    Following Lee’s surrender in 1865, functions of the government needed to be restored and to seat or re-seat into Congress, the members of its body from those states once a part of the Confederacy. The appearance of business as usual in Congress supposedly engaged in doing the peoples’ business continued. However, since Congress adjourned without a day and were compelled by the president to reconvene, there has never been since, a legitimate legislative branch of government. One of the first acts of Congress was to amend the Constitution. All amendments from the 13th – 27th have all not only been passed by illegitimate Congresses, ratified by acquiescing non-sovereign and non-component commonwealth states, the have all been wholly unconstitutional, despite their intentions or affects.

    One of these amendments, the first following the conflict of the states was the 13th amendment. This amendment made slavery and involuntary servitude illegal unless as a punishment to individuals convicted of a crime. Cool, slaves are freed right? But there should have never been slaves in the first place as, “all men (and women) are created equal…” But WOW, this really sounds great right? Wrong! Read the amendment!! Here is part of it:

    “[Slavery ect.] shall [not] exist within the United States, or any place subject to their jurisdiction.”

    AMENDMENT XIII Passed by Congress January 31, 1865. Ratified December 6, 1865.

    The key words above in red are: subject to their jurisdictionOn the surface, what appears to be the most important aspect of this amendment is freeing the slaves, but the emphasis is on the jurisdiction of enforcing this amendment.

    More Bait

    According to the original Constitution, citizens of the states were defined as seen in:

    Article IV Section 2.

    “The Citizens of each State shall be entitled to all Privileges and

    Immunities of Citizens in the several States.”

    WE the People were each citizens of our perspective state and given the privileges and immunities of Citizens in the several States. WE were not given liberty, for that is part of what WE the People already had and have, but privileges were extended to each individual among the “several states.” WE the People can visit and move to and reside in any state WE choose. But in 1866, Congress passed and the states ratified in1868, another amendment to the Constitution.

    Section 1.

    All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside. No State shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.”

    AMENDMENT XIV Passed by Congress June 13, 1866. Ratified July 9, 1868.

    WOW, doesn’t this sound great? WE are not just citizens of our individual state, WE are citizens of the United States. We’re really covered and protected now right? Wrong! This amendment defines a new class of citizenship and this citizenship is under the jurisdiction of the United States.

    Even More Bait

    Section 1.

    “The right of citizens of the United States to vote shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or by any State on account of race, color, or previous condition of servitude—“

    AMENDMENT XV

    Passed by Congress February 26, 1869. Ratified February 3, 1870.

    Isn’t this special? Now every race and color or those previously under forced servitude, could vote as citizens of the United States. (see amendment 14 above). Again, the emphasis here is on citizens of the United States!

    Sorry ladies and those 18 years of age, you would have to wait until the 20th century to be considered citizens, persons or people of the United States and get to vote.

    So from 1861-1863 the trap was constructed.

    From 1863-1870, the bait was set. By the way, WE the People were and are the bait, just in case you did not get that already.

    The trap just needed to be sprung.

    If WE the People are the bait, what was this trap constructed for? What is its purpose? What is its intention? What was it constructed for, baited for and designed to capture? The simple answer is power and control. Power and control over what? Everything WE the People have, would ever have and that includes our children’s, children’s children in perpetuity or forever. Who would control this? The United States would control WE the people. Excuse me, isn’t this the exact opposite of what the original Constitution said and meant? Yes! Our inalienable rights among these – Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness make US WE the People that grant limited powers to the government, OF the People, By the People and For the People. Government is OUR servant, WE do NOT serve the government!

    The trap has been constructed and baited. All that remains is, for it to be sprung. It was!

    To those of US that can physically see, do WE prefer to be blind or to see?

    Have you ever peeled an onion? There are lots of layers to an onion correct? So does this subject have many, many layers! Is the first layer too difficult or make you so uncomfortable that you want to stop peeling?

    The contrast between truth and fiction may be clearly seen in the almost cult following of Ernesto Guevara, commonly known as Che Guevara or just Che. His picture is found on everything from T-shirts and tattoos, to all manner of merchandise. The year? 2010!

    “Hollywood, Madison Avenue, and the mainstream media celebrate Che as a saint and a sex symbol – a selfless martyr with a love of humanity second only to Jesus Christ’s.”

    introduction: ‘Exposing the Real Che Guevara: And the Useful Idiots Who Idolize Him’

    by Humberto Fontova

    http://www.hfontova.com/

    The term “useful idiots,” is the name Joseph Stalin gave to foolish Westerners who parroted his lies about communism’s successes. And Stalin is responsible for the murder of even more people in one year, than Adolph Hitler ever thought about or had time for, over the entire course of World War II. But you probably didn’t know that or you probably don’t believe that either right? But until each one of US wake up, WE are all just useful idiots parroting an United States of America that is nothing more than legal fiction!

    Che is considered to be an icon for revolution and change, adored as a role model and honored by Rev. Jesse Jackson, Carlos Santana, Jay Z, Mike Tyson, Madonna, Johnny Depp, Angelina Jolie, the world’s top supermodel, Hollywood, The Cover of Time Magazine and the list goes on. Should Che, be so honored and worthy of  adulation and praise? If you desire, as he did, to destroy New York City with nuclear bombs, to promote book burning, to sign death warrants for authors that disagree with you; if you are a racist, and desire to persecute blacks, homosexuals, rock and roll and religious people; if you love material wealth at the expense of the poor; if you love murder and love to murder people yourself, then I guess Che’s your guy. So if this is really NOT your intention, how does one account for this cultural acceptance of Che? The simple answer is to hide the truth and then rewrite history. You cannot change history. History is what history is. So first, bury it then re-write it!

    From about 1861 -1871 much of OUR history has been buried and rewritten and it still is being rewritten.

    To begin, let US look at brief profile of President Abraham Lincoln.

    For the most part, this is what WE have been taught about the man. He was ‘Honest Abe,’ a simple man from the backwoods, a rail-splitter; a man of great patience, the image on the one-cent penny, the man that freed the slaves and saved the Union. Maybe some even know that he suffered from depression for most of his life, but this in a nutshell, is what WE have been taught. But is this the whole truth or has history been rewritten?

    Politics and religion is so often uninteresting and avoided, because they are divisive as when forced upon US, WE feel powerless to change anything.

    Because of the immensity and detail of these times and for the sake of time, I’ll not dot every ‘i’ or cross every ‘t’ here. I will only document certain events from these time periods. But it is recommended that you research this information for yourself and prove it to yourselves or refute it, if this is your motivation. Either way, it will be found out to be the truth. I caution you however, this information cannot be found in mainstream media or from history books from elementary schools all the way through college. One needs to look to the Library of Congress, perhaps some public and private libraries located in major cities, some libraries of major universities, some very old archives of newspaper articles and even the Internet. Yes the Internet does, contrary to popular belief, contain much factual information.

    Prior to 1861, the states in the Union were all sovereign states. Each was seen as any other foreign country and so was the Federal government. Each citizen was a citizen of their perspective sovereign and component commonwealth state. Each citizen was 1 of WE the People, of the United States of America.

    After the Declaration of Independence was written in 1776, The Articles of Confederation of States was completed in 1781. There were problems and The Constitutional Congress convened later, to finalize the Constitution in 1789. One major provision however, was to continue to allow succession of the individual and separate sovereign states, as The Declaration of Independence defined. Lincoln argued that to separate from the union, all the states had to agree.

    The media center of the day in the 1860’s was New York City, New York. Even then, the New York Times existed. They published many articles in support of the states’ right to secede from the Union. These ideas, plans and actions were in process long before Lincoln was ever nominated or inaugurated as president of the United States. True history will show that southern states rejected the whole idea of slavery before it was accepted. Initially, it was the Northern States that profited the most in the slave market. It was mostly Northern ships that brought slaves and sold them to the southern states. Industry was the dominating force in the North whereas agriculture, was chief among the Southern states. In the north, many types of people worked side by side in industry. The south primarily switched to the single crop, cotton. To compete with automation in the north, cheap labor was required in the south. So these two cultures were different, the several classes of the north and the plantation culture of master-slave in the south.

    For the same reasons the colonists wanted to secede from England in the 1700’s “taxation without representation,” the south felt the same need. The Republican Party and Lincoln were believed to support more federal control over the states as opposed to the states having the right to their own affairs.

    A supporter of the south’s legal right to secede from the Union and sympathetic to their stand for state rights was an Englishman.  John Emerich Edward Dalberg-Acton, was an English historian and moralist. Although many may not know this man or what he did, quite often one of the quotes attributed to him is remembered. In a letter to a Bishop of Rome in 1887, he challenged the new doctrine of papal infallibility of 1870. Part of his ‘Dictum’ read:

    “Power tends to corrupt, and absolute power corrupts absolutely.”

    No other words than these, are more proper and fitting here for this subject.

    WE have been taught that this conflict among the states was called ‘The Civil War.’ There was neither anything ‘civil’ about it nor was it technically a ‘war.’ It was a suppression of a rebellion; not a war, as only Congress can declare war. It sure looked like, smelled like, sounded like, tasted like and felt like a war, especially to those that died, were injured or lost much from it.

    Before Lincoln ever took office, states had already begun to secede. As in any war or conflict, plans must be drawn and implemented to regain control and restore order. The propaganda machine was in full effect. Lincoln knew or should have known that the states’ legal right to secede was without question. The federal government could not through coercion or force, keep the states or get them back into the Union. So the suppression of an unlawful rebellion must be devised and perceived by public opinion.

    Other causes for this revolt must be fabricated, even if there was some element of fact. The conflict was called the Civil War, implying that the South was uncivil and unwilling to work out their differences with the Union. Slavery became another issue and that the Southerners were evil in their ownership and treatment of people as property. This was all happening, even while the White House had slaves and the northern shipping industry protected the slave trade. All Lincoln had to do now was either to wait and see or to somehow manipulate southern aggression and get them to fire first. To be fair, the south wanted the North to fire first too. Either side would be seen as justified in defending itself. This orchestration was principally enacted by Lincoln through a veiled threat against the Maryland Legislature by presidential order and his handling of Fort Sumter.

    Maryland was a strategic location and Lincoln could not risk losing it with Baltimore being so close to Washington, D.C. If it was taken by the south, the entire area would be surrounded by hostile forces. In a presidential order, Lincoln advised the military not to get involved in the affairs of Maryland, even while Union forces were lined up on the border. The legislature was to meet for one reason alone. It was to answer the question as to whether they should secede. Pro-union thinking compelled them to move the session to Fredericksburg, in order for a more fair and honest vote to be taken. It was left undecided, but a day to reconvene was. That never happened and the union forces moved in. Habeas corpus was suspended and Marshall Law went into effect.

    Lincoln believed Fort Sumter was Federal Property and this infuriated the South. Military advisers concluded that Lincoln had two options: let it go or defend it. To hold the fort, 20,000 soldiers were needed inside and outside the areas and shorelines surrounding it. But there were most likely only 16,000 soldiers in the entire Union army at the time. Lincoln saw a third option. He ordered food and provisions to be delivered to the fort. I have no idea what his true motivation was for this, to hunker down and hope that the fort could just wait it out or was it for some other reason? Would you have trusted the North to have not concealed soldiers and arms in that ship? What happened next was that the South with no apparent opposition from the North seized the opportunity and fired upon the fort. The effect was that the South fired first, so the north appeared to be justified, in defense of the union and in putting down the revolt.

    Congress had adjourned sine die (pronounced sign-e die-e, Latin “without a day”), to reconvene. Lincoln summoned them back by presidential order April 15, 1861, which despite references to his constitutional authority to do so, he had no constitutional authority. Congress returned, fearing reprisals from the government if they did not. But at this point, there was no legitimate Congress. To this day, there is no legitimate legislative branch of government as required by the constitution. It just appears to be legitimate. You may think that this is merely a technicality, but our government is based on a constitution and Parliamentary Rules of Order. Only Congress may set their day to convene and to adjourn. It may only be argued that Lincoln’s authority was that of putting down an unlawful rebellion.

    The act of Congress, admitting West Virginia was passed December 31st, 1862. It did not go into effect until June of 1863, bringing the total number of states at the time to 35.

    While the country was focused on conflict, another United States and another 35 states all baring the same names and physical boundaries were created, so apparently no one would notice the change. This is called, legal fiction.

    In the common law tradition, legal fictions are suppositions of fact taken to be true by the courts of law, but which are not necessarily true. They typically are used to evade archaic rules of procedure or to extend the jurisdiction of the courts in ways that were considered useful, but not strictly authorized by the old rule.

    Legal fictions were used by courts prior to the existence of handling offences. In a situation where one person sells stolen property to another person, they can then be accused of handling stolen property. Legal fiction has been used to declare that: as the first person did not have the power to sell the property to the second person, the second person in possession of stolen property was considered to have also stolen the property, and was therefore guilty of theft.

    The term “legal fiction” is not usually used in a pejorative way in spite of the negative connotation of the phrase, and has been characterized as scaffolding around a building under construction. So what was being constructed here, a new government? It just had to be ENFORCED and it was and it is, to this day.

    Lincoln, as Commander and Chief of the military, according to the Constitution, was charged as president of the United States to put-down an unlawful revolt as it was perceived to be. He therefore, had every right and the authority to suspend habeas corpus and declare Marshall Law. But Marshall Law is only intended for a period of time and not indefinitely. Simply put, restore order then return to the Constitution’s original intent of the balance of powers and the rights of the individual states and individuals. Marshall Law was suspended, but Missouri apparently liked Marshall Law and did not want to let it go. Lincoln knew this and plans were made for the military to take back Missouri and restore order. Lincoln was assassinated before this took place, but it was later accomplished after his death. Marshall Law or not, the entire country had been redefined in 1861 with legal fictions employed, to make: (2) separate United States and (2) sets of states with the same names and geographical boundaries. The government had only the need to make it all appear legal and get it into law.

    In 1863, there were two extremely important acts by President Lincoln, important to OUR subject here.

    The first event of 1863 as many people understand, was the Emancipation Proclamation, which supposedly freed the slaves. It actually came in two parts.

    The first part came on September 22nd, 1862 which freed ALL the slaves of the 10 southern states that were not as of that date, under Federal control. This was nothing more than a military tactic, endeavoring to hurt the south by adversely affecting their economy.

    The second part was issued January 1st, 1863. This is no doubt what most of us refer to as, The Emancipation Proclamation. But I challenge anyone to actually read it word for word, as word for word copies are readily available. In so doing, you will come to understand that not all slaves were freed. The slave trade was still being protected by Union forces. There were slaves still un-freed in Lincoln’s own White House, even after he signed it.

    What was the second important act in 1863?

    A large contingency of immigrants had fled their homeland, fraught with famine and disease. They came to the land of Opportunity and Liberty. The first glimpse they had of what would become their new home was not yet she, who would one day stand as a beacon in the harbor, the Statue of Liberty. What they actually saw and found were often worse than what they left in their homeland of Ireland. Housing was deplorable. Disease was rampant. Opportunity was almost non-existent. Exploitation was benefiting those which had, at the expense of those which, had not.

    For a visual idea of these times, rent or watch the movie, ‘Gangs of New York.’ I will caution you however, on two points. This movie depicts extreme violence, BUT IT DOES NOT SHOW HOW MUCH WORSE, IT REALLY WAS!!!!

    The hidden powder keg was packed with explosives by an act of Congress and lit by the signature of President Lincoln, March 3rd, 1863.

    The Enrollment act or Conscription Act of 1863 required every suitable male citizen and those immigrants who had filed for citizenship, between the ages of twenty and forty-five, to enroll for military service. Immigrants filed for citizenship because, they wanted something more! They desired as all people do, to hold the precious rights of Liberty and Opportunity. But many of them barely off the boat, barely existing, and with ink still wet on their filings for citizenship, were now compelled to fight. Fight for what?

    There were compassionate exceptions to the Conscription Act, but two were not and it infuriated the masses. If you could pay $300 or send in a suitable replacement, you could be an exception and not required to serve. But who could afford $300? Who could find a suitable replacement?

    According to the website, http://www.measuringworth.com, there are six ways to determine what $300 in 1863 would have been worth in 2008. Figures range upward from more than $4,000.00 to over $500,000.00.  Here is the same question, who could have afforded this amount in 1863 or the adjusted amount in 2008? The answer is those of means and wealth or those that could lay hands on it.

    Who could you send as a suitable replacement for yourself, not already required to enroll? I’ll leave it you to ponder the possible answers. But it eventually must get to, who could have afforded to send a suitable replacement?

    Shortly after the Conscription Act went into effect; was published and known among the masses, there were revolts with violence across the country. There were none worse than that in New York City. In fact, there had never been before this time or since, a worse riot in the entire history of this country!

    Were there gangs? Of course there were gangs, but it was not the gangs of New York that were solely the source of the riot. Almost the entire city erupted into violence as if some alien and reptilian monster emerged from hiding in the sewers beneath the city. Those associated with or those believed to have money were called ‘$300 men’ or simply, “money men.” The mob was loose and they ran with a single mind to destroy anything and everyone associated with exemption from the draft and the forcing of the rest, to be drafted against their will.

    Many thought this whole thing was about ‘freeing the blacks’ or a conflict to secure power for the few and the privileged at the expense of the masses and the poor.

    The mob looted and lynched blacks and whites. At least one bed containing a sleeping black child was picked up and thrown from an upper floor window of an orphanage. The awakened child screamed in horror as she plunged to her death. Next, it was reported that the mob shouted, “Burn the nigger’s nest!” This orphanage, the enrollment office and other buildings were set on fire.

    General Robert E. Lee was in route to New York City. It was considered to be the financial capital of the day, as it arguably is today. Inefficient resources for insufficient numbers of troops were dispatched (many from N.Y. City), to meet Lee, even though it was believed that they most likely would have been defeated. Suddenly, they were ordered back to N.Y. City and commanded to, “take back the city at all costs.”  Ships in the harbor fired upon the infrastructure and people, destroying much and killing many. Troops fired upon the masses in the streets and in many cases, brothers literally killed their own brothers. After the riot was put down days later, much of the city was destroyed and many were dead and still lying in the streets – new immigrants, black and white, men, women and children. A famous and articulate poet awoke to a city still burning and smoldering. The smoke nearly hid all the light from the sun. He could only write three words to describe the horror he felt and saw, “Black, Black, Black!”

    Had not the inclement weather bogged down Lee’s forces, they may have been able to take N.Y. City, without having to fire a single shot.

    Many people may know some of this history and even know about the Conscription Act of 1863, but not about how it was to be enforced.

    The exact same act sets a structure for filling quotas and for the enforcement of this act as the President deemed necessary; as he required and at his sole discretion. All states (under the control of the north and of the south if and when defeated by union forces), were set under districts. These ‘districts’ would appear to be the congressional districts of each separate state. However, to enforce the Conscription Act, the districts were to be controlled by a military provost, with each district having their jurisdiction controlled by the Federal Government and ultimately by the President of the United States. This is exactly what was drawn up in 1861, referred to as ‘legal fiction,’ and now purported to be legal and enforced by law, by the Conscription Act of 1863.

    WE know that sometime after the Vietnam War and to this day, the military is an all-volunteer service. But it is important to understand, that no president or congress (Democrat, Republican or otherwise), has EVER rescinded, or repealed this order and the Supreme Court has never overturned this order of 1863! So technically, it is still in force. Therefore, anyone, according to the wording in the act can be drafted today, and the jurisdiction of all the states, rests with the Federal government and the president.

    I find it interesting how President Lincoln was assassinated. As we all have most likely been taught, Lincoln was seated in Ford’s Theater to watch a play, April 14, 1865.

    By most reports, John Wilkes Booth was a gifted actor, believed to have performed in 83 plays, just in 1858 alone. Among these plays he appeared in were, ‘William Wallace’ and ‘Brutus.’ The themes of these two plays were the killing or the overthrow of an unjust ruler. Booth said that of all the Shakespearean characters, his favorite role was Brutus – the slayer of a tyrant.

    Early 1863, Booth was arrested in St. Louis, Missouri while on a theatre tour. He was heard saying he, “wished the President and the whole damned government would go to hell.” He was charged with making “treasonous” remarks against the government. He was released, but only after he was compelled to take an oath of allegiance to the Union and pay a substantial fine. Was Booth exercising freedom of speech or were his words treasonous and threatening to the president? I however, do see a cause for this event to be remembered without fondness by Booth.

    On November 25, 1864, Booth performed for the only time with his two brothers, Edwin and Junius, in a single engagement production of Julius Caesar at the Winter Garden Theatre in New York. He played Mark Anthony and his brother Edwin had the larger role of Brutus in a performance acclaimed as “the greatest theatrical event in New York history”

    In his 2005 analysis of Lincoln’s assassination, Thomas Goodrich wrote,

    All the elements in Booth’s nature came together at once – his hatred of tyranny, his love of liberty; his passion for the stage, his sense of drama, and his lifelong quest to become immortal.”

    Booth, after shooting the president jumped from the President’s box to the stage, where he raised his knife and shouted “Sic semper tyrannis” (Latin for “Thus always to tyrants,” attributed to Brutus at Caesar’s assassination and the Virginia state motto which to this day, still appears on the state flag.

    Others have said that Booth added,

    “I have done it, the South is avenged!”

    To be fair, in addition to what may have justifiably been Booth’s true intentions or his rationalizations if you prefer, he was also known to be strongly opposed to the abolition of slavery and Lincoln’s proposal to extend voting rights to recently emancipated slaves. To be fair, the southern states were not totally innocent before, during or after the conflict among the states, even though they had every right to secede. To also be fair, I do not know the heart of Lincoln. I do not know if his love for the entire country was genuine and misguided or whether it was his desire to hold power and secure it in a centralized government.

    But I do know that the redistricting of the states and the formation of a legal fiction United States with legal fiction states in 1861 and the Conscription Act of 1863 were wholly unconstitutional! The effects took control from WE the People and placed it into the jurisdiction of a federal government and ultimately its chief executive, the president.

    This is precisely what our founders were in opposition to, when they declared independence from the tyrant King of England in 1776. Many of the same reasons existed as causes for the southern states to secede from the union and form a confederation of states.

    The Centralization of government (power and control of resources and people), is not new. The history of human kind and at the present time is full of tyrants, kings, Queens, despots and no matter what you want to call the rulers or leaders that control all others. The ends are ultimately always the same, no matter what good intentions there might have been or that might exist today. A populous that has no liberty would not be willing or able to fight for one tyrant against another tyrant wanting to conquer them, just acquiesce or give up for the single purpose of self-preservation of life.

    WE the People here are not so constituted under the control of a few. At least this is what WE think and believe and appears to be evidently so, by OUR choice for party and OUR casting of individual votes.

    For over 200 years, OUR constitution has stood. It cannot be changed. It is written and it is clear. All that can be done is to bury it; then re-write history and illegally amend it until such time that it becomes too late and our constitution is eliminated. WE are nearing this crucial moment in history, right now!

    So if the constitution cannot be changed, only one thing was needed it was thought, to secure this control in perpetuity over WE the People. This is to give the appearance that all has proceeded legally and according to the constitution.

    After the conflict among the states had mostly concluded with Lee’s surrender at the McLean House in the village of Appomattox Court House in Northern Virginia on April 9, 1865, just four days later, Lincoln was shot and died the following day. Conflicts continued for a time and the military later was dispatched to Missouri to lift Marshall Law and restore order. The Union was under re-construction. Legal fiction was the scaffolding!

    The trap has been constructed. All that remains is, for it to be baited and sprung.
