Do Your Ears Hang Low?

Subject: Do Your Ears Hang Low?

How many of you remember the children's song, "Do Your Ears Hang Low?"  --- Remember this line--- "Do your ears hang low?  Do they wobble to and fro?  Can you throw them over your shoulder like a Continental Soldier?....."

This song dates from Revolutionary War times.  Although it sounds silly and children still delight in it, the "ears" the rowdy Colonists were talking about weren't attached to their heads, and the song was regularly sung by those same Continental Soldiers on the march--- similar to the Marines singing "Sound Off!" as they march.

As the song makes very clear, there were soldiers called "Continental Soldiers" -- and it is also clear that they were the American soldiers fighting in the Revolutionary War.  What other "Continental Soldiers" have you ever heard of? 

They were called "Continental Soldiers" and sometimes just "Continentals" because they were landsmen not sailors, and they were protecting their land from British invasion.

Continental Soldier equals "Land Soldier" and Continental United States equals "Land United States".  It was the militias of the land that defeated the British sea-borne attackers. 

Please note these same soldiers were called "Colonial Soldiers" or just "Colonials".  This in turn references the fact that the Revolutionary War was supported by the 13 Colonies.

What do you know--- or should you know--- about the 13 Colonies? 

First, they were all very different, not just in location, but in derivation.  Some of the colonies were established by England--- New England and Virginia, for example--- and were funded in the early days by British investment companies: New England Company, Virginia Company, etc. 

Others were founded by other European Monarchies and their investment companies--- New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and Maryland, for example, were not founded or financed by England.  

Catholic Delaware and Maryland stood cheek and jowl with Protestant Virginia Colony. 

This should give everyone a clue that when the American Colonies stood up together and acted as one accord as Americans, it was not as the popular historians would have you believe a matter of a united America standing against the British.  It was a matter of colonies of various European nations breaking away from the domination of Europe, and in the case of Maryland and Delaware-- breaking away from the control of the Pope. 

Nothing like it had ever been seen in the history of the world.  No colony had ever broken free of the grip of the sponsoring nation.  And here you had thirteen of them, all going for broke, and repudiating the claims of the assorted European Monarchies and the Pope, together, at once. 

As such, the American Revolution was a revolution of thought, a new idea, and that idea was that men have the right of freewill and self-determination given them by their Creator, and no man--- no Monarch, no Pope -- has the right to dictate another's conscience, lay claim to his body or his land or his assets, or otherwise inflict taxes and "injuries" or require payments for services rendered without his consent. 

It wasn't just the King of England being given a send up.  It was the King of France, the King of the Netherlands, the King of Denmark, the King of Spain-----all the European Monarchs and the Pope----being given their walking papers.

So now you have some key information that has been missing, perhaps, from your education on these subjects.  I had Michael R. Hamilton send me an email and accuse me of just making up the name "Continental United States" and "Continental Marshals".

Well, if I made it up, then I would own the copyright to it, correct?  And there would be no need for the flap over who "owns" or doesn't own the Continental Marshals service.

But, regrettably, I didn't think of it.  The Founders did. 

The need for the Continental Marshals arose soon after the adoption of the actual Constitution, and it arose as a result of splitting the international jurisdiction owed to the united Colonies acting as the united "States of America" into delegated and undelegated powers. 

In 1790, George Washington organized the first United States Districts and the first US Marshals service as a part of the fall-out of the federal Judiciary Act.  They were assigned to protect the newly mandated federal maritime and admiralty courts.  They served in the delegated international jurisdiction created by The Constitution. 

In the same year, Benjamin Franklin organized the Continental Marshals to operate within the already established Postal Districts, to protect the Post Offices and Post Roads. Over time, the Continental (Land) Marshals became known as Federal Marshals.  They served the states and the people to maintain and enforce the Public Law governing the undelegated portion of international jurisdiction that was retained by the states and the people.  (Amendment X of the Bill of Rights).

Easily within my lifetime and most of yours, you have heard of both "Federal Marshals" and "US Marshals" but probably never knew the difference. 

Confusion reigns because from the foundations of this country there have always been two (or more) entities calling themselves the "United States". 

To shed more light on this circumstance, I am here reprinting all of one of the immortal Howard Freeman's articles.

Please note that since Howard wrote this some time back in the 1990's or 2000's, the Uniform Commercial Code has been renumbered and the actual Code Section that allows you to retain your constitutional guarantees is no longer UCC 1-207, but is now instead UCC 1-308.  

Also note the confusion that arises at the end of the article when even Howard Freeman used "Federal" as a catch-all term instead of distinguishing between "US" (delegated) and "Federal" (non-delegated) powers. 

It was to avoid this confusion that I suggested resurrecting the original name "Continental Marshals" and using that instead of "Federal Marshals" so that people would more readily grasp the fact that the Continental Marshals work for the land jurisdiction states and the people and be able to set them apart from "United States Marshals" who work for the incorporated UNITED STATES, INC.

Thanks to both ignorance and guile in some quarters, the re-use of the name "Continental Marshals" was used to spawn a new and different confusion--- at least in the minds of some less informed people--- who have attempted to call state militiamen "continental marshals". 

It boils down to this, folks--- the states of the union have the iron-clad guarantee that they can keep their "well-regulated militias" and they need to make use of that guarantee by retaining that name for their state-based armed forces.  There is a fundamental guarantee lost by calling militiamen "marshals".

When we knowingly operate in the international jurisdiction of the sea, we have historical precedent going back to Ben Franklin for using officers called "Continental Marshals" and later "Federal Marshals" to enforce the undelegated international jurisdiction owed to the states and people.

If we want to retain our freedom and restore our lawful government instead of going off the tracks and engaging in an insurrectionist folly, it only makes sense to cut the confusion to the bone and call offices and officers by their historically correct names. 

As you read this article, "The Two United States and the Law" also bear in mind that since Freeman wrote this---and although what he says remains fundamentally true---another sleight of hand has taken place and the original "United States" he correctly refers to as the "continental United States" has dropped completely off the board (unless we resurrect it) and the "Two United States" currently being employed by the rats in Congress are the Territorial United States (what Freeman calls the "Federal United States") and the Municipal United States, so that we are denied access to any of the constitutional guarantees as long as we submit to being counted either "United States Citizens" or "citizens of the United States":

The Two United States and the Law
by Howard Freeman
 

Our forefathers, weary of the oppressive measures that King George III’s government forced upon them, in common declared their independence from England in 1776. They were not expected to be successful in that resistance. The moneyed people had backed England for two major reasons. First, our forefathers wanted a rigid, written Constitution “set in concrete.” They were familiar with the so-called Constitution of England which consisted largely of customs, precedents, traditions, and understandings, often vague and always flexible. They wanted the principle of English common law, that an act done by any official person or law-making body beyond his or its legal competence was simply void. Second, the thirteen little colonies desired to base their union on substance (gold and silver) — real money. They well knew how the despotic governments of Europe were mortgaged to the hilt — lock, stock, and barrel, the land, the people, everything — to certain wealthy men who controlled the banks, the currency, and all credit, who lent credit but did not loan gold and silver!

The United States of America was made up of a union of what is now fifty sovereign States, a three-branch (legislative, executive, and judicial) Republic known as The United States of America, or as termed in this article, the Continental United States. Its citizenry live in one of the fifty States, and its laws are based on the Constitution, which is based on Common Law.

Less than one hundred years after we became a nation, a loophole was discovered in the Constitution by cunning lawyers in league with the international bankers. They realized that a separate nation existed, by the same name, that Congress had created in Article I, Section 8, Clause 17. This “United States” is a Legislative Democracy within the Constitutional Republic, and is known as the Federal United States. It has exclusive, unlimited rule over its citizenry, the residents of the District of Columbia, the territories and enclaves (Guam, Midway Islands, Wake Island, Puerto Rico, etc.), and anyone who is a citizen by way of the 14th Amendment (naturalized citizens).

Both United States have the same Congress that rules in both nations. One “United States,” the Republic of fifty States, has the “stars and stripes” as its flag, but without any fringe on it. The Federal United States’ flag is the stars and stripes with a yellow fringe, seen in all the courts. The abbreviations of the States of the Continental United States are, with or without the zip codes, Ala., Alas., Ariz., Ark., Cal., etc. The abbreviations of the States under the jurisdiction of the Federal United States, the Legislative Democracy, are AL, AK, AZ, AR, CA, etc. (without any periods).

Under the Constitution, based on Common Law, the Republic of the Continental United States provides for legal cases (1) at Law, (2) in Equity, and (3) in Admiralty:

(1) Law is the collective organization of the individual right to lawful defense. It is the will of the majority, the organization of the natural right of lawful defense. It is the substitution of a common force for individual forces, to do only what the individual forces have a natural and lawful right to do: to protect persons, liberties, and properties; to maintain the right of each, and to cause justice to reign over us all. Since an individual cannot lawfully use force against the person, liberty, or property of another individual, then the common force — for the same reason — cannot lawfully be used to destroy the person, liberty, or property of individuals or groups. Law allows you to do anything you want to, as long as you don’t infringe upon the life, liberty or property of anyone else. Law does not compel performance. Today’s so-called laws (ordinances, statutes, acts, regulations, orders, precepts, etc.) are often erroneously perceived as law, but just because something is called a “law” does not necessarily make it a law. [There is a difference between “legal” and “lawful.” Anything the government does is legal, but it may not be lawful.] 

(2) Equity is the jurisdiction of compelled performance (for any contract you are a party to) and is based on what is fair in a particular situation. The term “equity” denotes the spirit and habit of fairness, justness, and right dealing which would regulate the intercourse of men with men. You have no rights other than what is specified in your contract. Equity has no criminal aspects to it.

(3) Admiralty is compelled performance plus a criminal penalty, a civil contract with a criminal penalty.

By 1938 the gradual merger procedurally between law and equity actions (i.e., the same court has jurisdiction over legal, equitable, and admiralty matters) was recognized. The nation was bankrupt and was owned by its creditors (the international bankers) who now owned everything — the Congress, the Executive, the courts, all the States and their legislatures and executives, all the land, and all the people. Everything was mortgaged in the national debt. We had gone from being sovereigns over government to subjects under government, through the use of negotiable instruments to discharge our debts with limited liability, instead of paying our debts at common law with gold or silver coin.

The remainder of this article explains how this happened, where we are today, and what remedy we have to protect ourselves from this system.

Our Present Commercial System of “Law”
and the REMEDY Provided for Our Protection
The present commercial system of “law” has replaced the old and familiar Common Law upon which our nation was founded. The following is the legal thread which brought us from sovereigns over government to subjects under government, through the use of negotiable instruments (Federal Reserve Notes) to discharge our debts with limited liability instead of paying our debts at common law with gold or silver coin.

The change in our system of law from public law to private commercial law was recognized by the Supreme Court of the United States in the Erie Railroad v. Thompkins case of 1938, after which case, in the same year, the procedures of Law were officially blended with the procedures of Equity. Prior to 1938, all U.S. Supreme Court decisions were based upon public law — or that system of law that was controlled by Constitutional limitation. Since 1938, all U.S. Supreme Court decisions are based upon what is termed public policy.

Public policy concerns commercial transactions made under the Negotiable Instrument’s Law, which is a branch of the international Law Merchant. This has been codified into what is now known as the Uniform Commercial Code, which system of law was made uniform throughout the fifty States through the cunning of the Congress of the United States (which “United States” has its origin in Article I, Section 8, Clause 17 of the Constitution, as distinguished from the “United States,” which is the Union of the fifty States).

In offering grants of negotiable paper (Federal Reserve Notes) which the Congress gave to the fifty States of the Union for education, highways, health, and other purposes, Congress bound all the States of the Union into a commercial agreement with the Federal United States (as distinguished from the Continental United States). The fifty States accepted the “benefits” offered by the Federal United States as the consideration of a commercial agreement between the Federal United States and each of the corporate States. The corporate States were then obligated to obey the Congress of the Federal United States and also to assume their portion of the equitable debts of the Federal United States to the international banking houses, for the credit loaned. The credit which each State received, in the form of federal grants, was predicated upon equitable paper.

This system of negotiable paper binds all corporate entities of government together in a vast system of commercial agreements and is what has altered our court system from one under the Common Law to a Legislative Article I Court, or Tribunal, system of commercial law. Those persons brought before this court are held to the letter of every statute of government on the federal, state, county, or municipal levels unless they have exercised the REMEDY provided for them within that system of Commercial Law whereby, when forced to use a so-called “benefit” offered, or available, to them, from government, they may reserve their former right, under the Common Law guarantee of same, not to be bound by any contract, or commercial agreement, that they did not enter knowingly, voluntarily, and intentionally.

This is exactly how the corporate entities of state, county, and municipal governments got entangled with the Legislative Democracy, created by Article I, Section 8, Clause 17 of the Constitution, and called here The Federal United States, to distinguish it from the Continental United States, whose origin was in the Union of the Sovereign States.
The same national Congress rules the Continental United States pursuant to Constitutional limits upon its authority, while it enjoys exclusive rule, with no Constitutional limitations, as it legislates for the Federal United States.

With the above information, we may ask: “How did we, the free Preamble citizenry of the Sovereign States, lose our guaranteed unalienable rights and be forced into acceptance of the equitable debt obligations of the Federal United States, and also become subject to that entity of government, and divorced from our Sovereign States in the Republic, which we call here the Continental United States?” We do not reside, work, or have income from any territory subject to the direct jurisdiction of the Federal United States. These are questions that have troubled sincere, patriotic Americans for many years. Our lack of knowledge concerning the cunning of the legal profession is the cause of that divorce, but a knowledge of the truth concerning the legal thread, which caught us in its net, will restore our former status as a free Preamble citizen of the Republic. The answer follows:

Our national Congress works for two nations foreign to each other, and by legal cunning both are called The United States. One is the Union of Sovereign States, under the Constitution, termed in this article the Continental United States. The other is a Legislative Democracy which has its origin in Article I, Section 8, Clause 17 of the Constitution, here termed the Federal United States. Very few people, when they see some “law” passed by Congress, ask themselves, “Which nation was Congress working for when it passed this or that so-called law?” Or, few ask,
“Does this particular law apply to the Continental citizenry of the Republic, or does this particular law apply only to residents of the District of Columbia and other named enclaves, or territories, of the Democracy called the Federal United States?”


Since these questions are seldom asked by the uninformed citizenry of the Republic, it was an open invitation for “cunning” political leadership to seek more power and authority over the entire citizenry of the Republic through the medium of “legalese.” Congress deliberately failed in its duty to provide a medium of exchange for the citizenry of the Republic, in harmony with its Constitutional mandate. Instead, it created an abundance of commercial credit money for the Legislative Democracy, where it was not bound by Constitutional limitations. Then, after having created an emergency situation, and a tremendous depression in the Republic, Congress used its emergency authority to remove the remaining substance (gold and silver) from the medium of exchange belonging to the Republic, and made the negotiable instrument paper of the Legislative Democracy (Federal United States) a legal tender for Continental United States citizenry to use in the discharge of debts.

At the same time, Congress granted the entire citizenry of the two nations the “benefit” of limited liability in the discharge of all debts by telling the citizenry that the gold and silver coins of the Republic were out of date and cumbersome. The citizens were told that gold and silver (substance) was no longer needed to pay their debts, that they were now “privileged” to discharge debt with this more “convenient” currency, issued by the Federal United States. Consequently, everyone was forced to “go modern,” and to turn in their gold as a patriotic gesture. The entire news media complex went along with the scam and declared it to be a forward step for our democracy, no longer referring to America as a Republic.

From that time on, it was a falling light for the Republic of 1776, and a rising light for Franklin Roosevelt’s New Deal Democracy, which overcame the depression, which was caused by a created shortage of real money. There was created an abundance of debt paper money, so-called, in the form of interest-bearing negotiable instrument paper called Federal Reserve Notes, and other forms of paperwork credit instruments.

Since all contracts since Roosevelt’s time have the colorable consideration of Federal Reserve Notes, instead of a genuine consideration of silver and gold coin, all contracts are colorable contracts, and not genuine contracts. [According to Black’s Law Dictionary (1990), colorable means “That which is in appearance only, and not in reality, what it purports to be, hence counterfeit, feigned, having the appearance of truth.”] 

Consequently, a new colorable jurisdiction, called a statutory jurisdiction, had to be created to enforce the contracts. Soon the term colorable contract was changed to the term commercial agreement to fit circumstances of the new statutory jurisdiction, which is legislative, rather than judicial, in nature. This jurisdiction enforces commercial agreements upon implied consent, rather than full knowledge, as it is with the enforcement of contracts under the Common Law.

All of our courts today sit as legislative Tribunals, and the so-called “statutes” of legislative bodies being enforced in these Legislative Tribunals are not “statutes” passed by the legislative branch of our three-branch Republic, but as “commercial obligations” to the Federal United States for anyone in the Federal United States or in the Continental United States who has used the equitable currency of the Federal United States and who has accepted the “benefit,” or “privilege,” of discharging his debts with the limited liability “benefit” offered to him by the Federal United States … EXCEPT those who availed themselves of the remedy within this commercial system of law, which remedy is today found in Book 1 of the Uniform Commercial Code at Section 207.

When used in conjunction with one’s signature, a stamp stating “Without Prejudice U.C.C. 1-207” is sufficient to indicate to the magistrate of any of our present Legislative Tribunals (called “courts”) that the signer of the document has reserved his Common Law right. He is not to be bound to the statute, or commercial obligation, of any commercial agreement that he did not enter knowingly, voluntarily, and intentionally, as would be the case in any Common Law contract.
Furthermore, pursuant to U.C.C. 1-103, the statute, being enforced as a commercial obligation of a commercial agreement, must now be construed in harmony with the old Common Law of America, where the tribunal/court must rule that the statute does not apply to the individual who is wise enough and informed enough to exercise the remedy provided in this new system of law. He retains his former status in the Republic and fully enjoys his unalienable rights, guaranteed to him by the Constitution of the Republic, while those about him “curse the darkness” of Commercial Law government, lacking the truth needed to free themselves from a slave status under the Federal United States, even while inhabiting territory foreign to its territorial venue.

We The People Have HAD IT! - emailed by a nesaranews reader


We The People Have HAD IT!

Dear Elected, Legislative and Judicial Branches in all 50 states and District of Columbia,

We have been yelling from the rooftops that there is on-going misconduct in our court rooms.  We informed you during Malheur National Wildlife Refuge Trials in September/October of 2016 and again in March of 2017.  We informed you during the first BundyRanch Trial of 2017, currently on break, in Nevada.

We have done our “due diligence” in requesting help, all to fall on deaf ears.  By ALL of our “supposed representatives”.  

Do you all think this is acceptable? WE ARE NOT SHUTTING UP, WE ARE NOT GOING AWAY.

We have notified you in writing.  You have failed to take action, you have failed to even acknowledge the problem, and that is UNACCEPTABLE!  You have the the government committing Brady Violations and Judge Gloria Navarro telling the courtroom “We don’t have to tell you everything”?  What is THAT?  

  • 1)  Under our system of Law, you are required to tell any information that helps the defendant!
  • 2)  Under our system of Law, you are allowed to face your accuser
  • 3)  Under our system of Law, you are allowed BAIL
  • 4)  Under our system of Law, you are allowed a speedy trial

NONE of these have occurred.  Our prisoners are being abused and We The People have had it.

If you all are so busy covering your own asses and corruption, that none of you is willing to take action on these matters, you will have earned what you deserve.

YOU, US Government have a legal agreement (called a Compact) that created you.  Yes, it’s been subverted and perverted, but in any court of law, CONTRACT LAW stands.  

We The People have been complaining about all this garbage for 20+ Years, yet .. no solutions, not one ounce of cooperation or capitulation.  Even the Hagees lost their appeal, and they didn’t deserve that either.

US Attorney General Sessions:  Where are the arrests?  For High Profile People committing Sedition? Subversion?  Treason?   It appears getting convictions for the Bundy Family are more important than any of it.

President Trump:  Where is ANY help for our P3 (Patriot Political Prisoners)?  The list is growing daily!  #FreeTheHammonds  #FreeSamGirod #FreeJoeRobertson WE Are done being polite and respectful.  Pony up and deliver.  That is not a request!

All we can gather by the silence is:  

  • We The People don’t matter
  • We The People are just cream for your RICO Operation
  • We The People do NOT need to follow the law, BECAUSE NONE OF YOU DO!

Anything that now happens as a result of your inaction, will be your own damn fault, and come what may….All I hear by your silence is, we need bigger BundyRanch and Bigger Occupations - don’t forget the guns.. they make QUITE THE STORY!  

Fix this:

We EXPECT ALL DEFENDANTS Released Immediately.  We EXPECT ALL CHARGES against all DEFENDANTS, DISMISSED for BundyRanch and there are **NO OTHER OPTIONS** to be had.   If you want to put me in jail, feel free.. but be warned, I will be asking YOU why you didn’t do your job, and I will be taking notes on your reasons to pass on to others.  You all deserve to be brought up on Civil RICO, and I hope someone does it.  Those of you convicted, deserve the punishment for Treason.

WHAT AISLE IS THE POLISH SAUSAGE IN?


WHAT AISLE IS THE POLISH SAUSAGE IN?

 
Everyone seems to be in such a hurry to scream 'prejudice' these days................

A customer asked, "In what aisle can I find the Polish sausage?"

The clerk asks, "Are you Polish?"

The guy, clearly offended, says, "Yes I am. But let me ask you something.
 
If I had asked for Italian sausage, would you ask me if I was Italian?
 
Or if I had asked for German Bratwurst, would you ask me if I was German?
 
Or if I asked for a kosher hot dog would you ask me if I was Jewish?
 
Or if I had asked for a Taco, would you ask if I was Mexican?
 
Or if I asked for some Whiskey, would you ask if I was Irish?"

The clerk says, "No, I probably wouldn't."

The guy says, "Well then, because I asked for Polish sausage, why did you ask me if I'm Polish?" 

The clerk replied, "Because you're in Ace Hardware."

E X P O S E D
PAUL  RYAN - TRAITOR
HAD  A  SECRET  MEETING  WITH  OBAMA  AN  HOUR  AFTER  HE  KILLED  THE  HEALTHCARE  BILL


Speaker of the House and  TOTAL SELLOUT  Paul Ryan was photographed yesterday rushing to a secret meeting in a residential neighborhood of Washington DC just one hour after announcing to the world that the GOP health care bill was dead in the water. 

A reporter for the Washington Examiner heard on a secured channel that Ryan had broken away from his security detail and managed to follow him and take the above photograph of him exiting the vehicle.

The men he is with aren’t his Secret Service detail. They are the driver and lead agent for former President Barack Obama. 

Examiner reporter Walter Lyons stayed on scene long enough to see Ryan leave approximately an hour later. He told a colleague at the Federalist Papers:

“He was full of smiles. It was as if he had just accomplished a mission that he had been working on for months.”

It would appear that Ryan has been working with Obama’s Deep State shadow government all along.

$10 Trillion Missing from Pentagon and No One — Not Even the DoD — Knows Where It Is

Source: Claire Bernish

Over a mere two decades, the Pentagon lost track of a mind-numbing $10 trillion — that’s trillion, with a fat, taxpayer-funded “T” — and no one, not even the Department of Defense, really knows where it went or on what it was spent.
Even though audits of all federal agencies became mandatory in 1996, the Pentagon has apparently made itself an exception, and — fully 20 years later — stands obstinately orotund in never having complied.

Because, as defense officials insist — summoning their best impudent adolescent — an audit would take too long and, unironically, cost too much.

“Over the last 20 years, the Pentagon has broken every promise to Congress about when an audit would be completed,” Rafael DeGennaro, director of Audit the Pentagon, told the Guardian recently. “Meanwhile, Congress has more than doubled the Pentagon’s budget.”

Worse, President Trump’s newly-proposed budget seeks to toss an additional $54 billion into the evidently bottomless pit that is the U.S. military  — more for interventionist policy, more for resource-plundering, more for proxy fighting, and, of course, more for jets and drones to drop more bombs suspiciously often on civilians.
Maybe.

Because, without the mandated audit, the DoD could be purchasing damned near anything, at any cost, and use, or give, it — to anyone, for any reason.
Officials with the Government Accountability Office and Office of the Inspector General have catalogued egregious financial disparities at the Pentagon for years — yet the Defense Department grouses the cost and energy necessary to perform an audit in compliance with the law makes it untenable.

Astonishingly, the Pentagon’s own watchdog tacitly approves this technically-illegal workaround — and the legally-gray and, yes, literally, on-the-books-corrupt practices in tandem — to what would incontrovertibly be a most unpleasant audit, indeed.

Take the following of myriad examples, called “plugging,” for which Pentagon bookkeepers are not only encouraged to conjure figures from thin air, but, in many cases, they would be physically and administratively incapable of performing the job without doing so — without ever having faced consequences for this brazen cooking of books.

To wit, Reuters reported the results of an investigation into Defense’s magical number-crunching — well over three years ago, on November 18, 2013 — detailing the illicit tasks of 15-year employee, “Linda Woodford [who] spent the last 15 years of her career inserting phony numbers in the U.S. Department of Defense’s accounts.”

Woodford, who has since retired, and others like her, act as individual pieces in the amassing chewed gum only appearing to plug a damning mishandling of funds pilfered from the American people to fund wars overseas for resources in the name of U.S. defense.

“Every month until she retired in 2011,” Scot J. Paltrow wrote for Reuters, “she says, the day came when the Navy would start dumping numbers on the Cleveland, Ohio, office of the Defense Finance and Accounting Service, the Pentagon’s main accounting agency. Using the data they received, Woodford and her fellow DFAS accountants there set about preparing monthly reports to square the Navy’s books with the U.S. Treasury’s – a balancing-the-checkbook maneuver required of all the military services and other Pentagon agencies.
“And every month, they encountered the same problem. Numbers were missing. Numbers were clearly wrong. Numbers came with no explanation of how the money had been spent or which congressional appropriation it came from. ‘A lot of times there were issues of numbers being inaccurate,’ Woodford says. ‘We didn’t have the detail … for a lot of it.’”

Where a number of disparities could be corrected through hurried communications, a great deal — thousands each month, for each person on the task — required fictitious figures. Murkily deemed, “unsubstantiated change actions” — tersely termed, “plugs” — this artificial fix forcing records into an unnatural alignment is common practice at the Pentagon.

Beyond bogus books, the Pentagon likely flushed that $10 trillion in taxes down the toilet of inanity that is unchecked purchasing by inept staff who must be devoid of prior experience in the field of defense.

This tax robbery would eclipse the palatability of blood money — if it weren’t also being wasted on items such as the 7,437 extraneous Humvee front suspensions — purchased in surplus over the inexplicable 14-year supply of 15,000 unnecessary Humvee front suspensions already gathering warehouse-shelf dust.
And there are three items of note on this particular example, of many:
 
One, the U.S. Department of Defense considers inventory surpassing a three-year supply, “excessive.”

Two, the stupefying additional seven-thousand-something front suspensions arrived, as ordered, during a period of demand reduced by half.

Three, scores of additional items — mostly unaccounted for in inventory — sit untouched and aging in storage, growing not only incapable of being used, but too dangerous to be properly disposed of safely.

Worse, contractors greedily sink hands into lucrative contracts — with all the same supply-based waste at every level, from the abject disaster that is the $1 trillion F-35 fighter program, to the $8,123.50 shelled out for Bell Helicopter Textron helicopter gears with a price tag of $445.06, to the DoD settlement with Boeing for overcharges of a whopping $13.7 million.

The latter included a charge to the Pentagon of $2,286 — spent for an aluminium pin ordinarily costing just $10 — the irony of whose 228.6 percent markup cannot be overstated.

Considering all the cooking of numbers apparently fueled with burning money stateside, you would think Defense channeled its efforts into becoming a paragon of economic efficiency when the military defends the United States.
Overseas. From terrorism. And from terrorists. And terrorist-supporting nations.
But this is the Pentagon — and a trickle of telling headlines regularly grace the news, each evincing yet another missing shipment of weapons, unknown allocation of funds, or retrieval of various U.S.-made arms and munitions by some terrorist group deemed politically less acceptable than others by officials naming pawns.

In fact, so many American weapons and supplies lost by the DoD and CIA become the property of actual terrorists — who then use them sadistically against civilians and strategically against our proxies and theirs — it would be negligent not to describe the phenomenon as pattern, whether or not intent exists behind it.

Since practically the moment of nationalist President Donald Trump’s inauguration, the ceaselessly belligerent of the military-industrial machine have been granted a new head cheerleader with a bullhorn so powerful as to render calls to apply the brakes effectively, if not unpatriotically, moot.

Sans any optimistic indication thus far lacking from the Trump administration it would reverse course and move toward, rather than against, transparency, the painstaking audit imperative to DoD accountability remains only a theory — while the Pentagon’s $10 trillion sits as the world’s largest elephant in apathetic America’s living room.

For now, we know generally where our money is going: war. Which aspect of war — compared to the power of your outrage about its callous and reckless execution in your name — matters little.

Wolves in Sheep's Clothing


By Anna Von Reitz

There is no "Chief Justice Michael R. Hamilton"--- there's just a con man wanted in three states, living in Louisiana now, and doing what he does best: misleading people.

In order to have a "Chief Justice" there must be such an office, it must be available, one must eligible for it, one must earn it, and one must be properly elected to fill it.

Michael R. Hamilton's claim to be "Chief Justice" fails on all counts.
Michael R. Hamilton and those supporting him, including Bruce Doucette, haven't taken the steps to take back their birthright political status as American state nationals, so they can't function as American State Citizens.

They are still United States Citizens and/or "citizens of the United States" pretending to be something they are not, and as their actions suggest, they are wolves in sheep's clothing in other ways, too.

There is one Chief Justice of the Maritime Admiralty court system established by the original Constitution and that post belongs to the delegated authority of the United States. It has nothing to do with the United States of America and the Common Law court system the people of this country are owed.

So there is no such office as "Chief Justice" on our side of the fence.

And if there were, Michael R. Hamilton couldn't fill it, because he would have to be claiming his birthright political status.

He would have to be functioning under 100% commercial liability, too, which means posting a bond with the U.S. Treasury.

He hasn't done that, either.

He would also have to be a State Justice first. He claims that he is serving in the capacity of a State Justice for Louisiana--- but no, I'm sorry, not possible. Irish nationals can't serve as officers of Spanish courts, and US citizens can't serve as officers of any American court in Louisiana, in Texas, in Colorado, or any other state.

None of the actual states allow Dual Citizenship. They never have. They still don't. If you don't give up your U.S.citizenship, you can't fill a position as a Justice or Judge of any state of the Union.

If you don't get to first base, you aren't allowed to go to second.
If you aren't really a State Justice, you can't be a Chief Justice---even if there was such an office on the American side--- and there isn't.

Then there is the matter of how and by whom he was supposedly elected to fill this non-existent office. Three other people who are also pretending to be State Justices without meeting the requirements of the office. one of them being Bruce Doucette, elected him while on a (unsuccessful) mission to secure the release of prisoners in New Mexico.

I wasn't there and would have objected to the entire proposition as nonsense, but apparently, they thought that choosing one of them to act as lead on the case and calling him "Chief Justice" would lend more weight to their position, so they just out of the thin air created such an office and the three of them elected Michael R. Hamilton to fill it.

It's so completely loony, so contrary to what is proper, I don't even know what to say about that. If you think that three people have the right to wave their hands and create a new public office and put it on the payroll, you don't need a new government, you need a psychiatrist.

What disturbs me beyond the dishonor and discredit that these actors have brought to those people who are actually doing the work and filling vacated state offices honorably, is the power-mongering and egotism involved.

Being a Public Servant means just that. In the American system of things, you set aside your sovereign status for the good of your country and you fill a public office and expose yourself to the slings and arrows and requirements of it. It's not a "plum" or a mark of social status and whatever powers that office possesses, are exercised with a constant knowledge of their limits.

Here were have an example of people trying to lord it over others and pretending to have special ranks and powers never granted to them, even creating fancy sounding new offices for themselves out of thin air.
And what does that sound like, but more of the same crappola we have been struggling with all these years?

Again, I say to all of you--- come away. Don't participate in what they are doing and don't be associated anymore with Bruce Doucette or Michael R. Hamilton or any of those supporting them and condoning this behavior.

Not Overtaken, Reborn



By Anna Von Reitz


I haven't had an opportunity to review this lengthy psyops report in depth, but it appears to be based on the assumption that because the names have changed and some international forces and new weapons are present, the America we love and know is being lost and overtaken.  In fact, what is being stripped away are the false names and presumptions that were the result of the Great Fraud and illegal occupation beginning in 1861. 

The actual country that we living American people are owed is being returned and the States of America are receiving back all the assets and credit that has been embezzled. Remember that the original constitution is called "The Constitution for the united States of America"----- the name of this country as it pertains to the delegated authority in international jurisdiction was always "States of America".  The "united" was an adjective used to describe "States of America".

This whole situation has become overly complex over time and the lawyers have had a field day confusing everyone and making false claims and practicing personage and barratry.  They've had a really sweet racketeering operation on our shores and they've done it in such a clever way that at the end of the day, they can even attempt to blame it on us and say that they did it all in our best interests. 

I am blowing past all that, as if it doesn't exist, and going to the meat of the matter.  We want our land, we want our homes, we want our money, we want our identities, our copyrights, our trademarks, our patents--- all of it returned.  We want clean, clear, easy means to correct our political status, obtain proper passports, and convert all these "public trusts" back into private bank accounts.  We want remedy on the land, full cure and maintenance on the sea, and redemption in the jurisdiction of the air. 

To do that requires going back to the actual names of things as they were 150 years ago and doing justice to the dead.  Think of all the people who lived and died as slaves since 1861, thinking that they were free men?  Deluded, fooled, defrauded, embezzled, conned by these criminals? 

It's not just a matter of what is due to us, it's what was due to our great-great-grandparents, too. 

There was a plan to kill the Priority Creditors of the con artists, just as they did in Nazi Germany.  We blew that to smithereens in 2014.  There was a plan to declare our Republics "dead", no longer having "international representation" and no longer having a sufficient currency in international circulation.  We blew that sky-high in 2015. At every turn, as the con artists have tried to undermine us, tried to deny our claims, tried to gain the legal edge---- they have been defeated. 

And not just defeated.  Squashed flat.  Exposed.  Like roaches.

There was an attempt by HRM Elizabeth II to claim that she was the Head of State of the United States of America.  Wrong.  The actual Head of State stepped forward.  There was an attempt by FRANCE, that is, Jacob Rothschild, to establish a contract by assumption and succession.  We said, thanks, but no thanks.  In public.  Repeatedly. 

What needs to happen in America and in every other country around the world is a full and honest housecleaning and education of the public so as to enable every man and woman to make decisions---- a sort of planetary Townhall meeting --- where each one except those who really, truly are disabled and unable to act in their own behalf --- gets to exercise their free will and have access to their own credit without middlemen. 

Anyone who is not in a coma, anyone who is say, sixteen or older, anyone who is mentally competent --- should be truthfully told about the issues and choices, and then allowed to choose for themselves.

Those who are with me believe that when a man or woman is given all the facts, all the pros and cons, the vast majority will choose what is right and good for themselves and for their country and for all mankind.   Take away the lies and fears and tell the truth and at the end of the day---- we are grown up enough and rational enough to choose what is good.

I have often told the story of being lost in a blizzard in the back country of Alaska and seeing a tiny little Quonset hut in the distance, struggling my way to the door, and being welcomed by a very elderly Eskimo living very simple life on the very edge of nowhere.  When it comes push to shove, when we become aware of how small we are, when we start discerning the real miracles of life--- then all of a sudden the world drops away and what is real and precious becomes painfully apparent.

Nobody has to tell us what is true or what is good.  We all already know.  

It's right there in front of us.  It's been there all the time.  And when we remember who and what we are, it's so easy to be grateful and to choose life and to share, because we finally realize that we are worthy and we are loved and we are blessed and we are immersed in riches beyond compare in great abundance, with more than enough for our needs and wants and wishes, more than enough for every man to have his home in peace. 

The dark night of the Doctrine of Scarcity and the rule of Satan is finally ending.  The Thousand Years of Peace has been declared, and those who are guilty are scattering and stumbling, afraid of what this means and what will be done to them.  It is the Will of our Father, that not one will be lost.  Not a single goat, not a single sheep.  All will be redeemed.  All will be cared for.  All will be taught.  All will be cherished.  And though their sins are as scarlet, they shall be washed white as wool.
Those who are ruining the Earth will be stopped and a new Paradise will be born and it is happening right now. 

The plans of the Enemy are all torn and run amok.  The power of money is nothing compared to the power of Nature and love.  Rejoice. Have faith. You may feel angry about what has been revealed.  You may be afraid.  Other people may be rushing around in a panic.  Some may try to delude you again.  There's ten pounds of ignorance for every pound of knowledge on the street right now.  But what I am telling you is true, and what all the naysayers and fear-mongers are telling you, is not.

And as we should all know by now, when what is true comes, what is false must pass away.
