Exposing government lies that enslave you


Do not be fooled by hundreds of cunningly arranged lies appearing as truth.

You are under strong delusion

Most people are deceived out of their rights by bullies that impose fake* laws appearing as truth.  Learn their dirty tricks and avoid enslavement.

The lessons presented here will expose lies of “the powers that be” — “the system” — the hidden “they” — that control all branches of government.

Understand the deceptions. Repent — turn around — go back to traditional values. Stand fast in the liberty that was bestowed on America, and be not enslaved again by bondage. But don’t blame the Globalist agenda.

Global Agenda

Globalists have a one-world government.  Their agenda is to destroy all existing governments.  They infiltrate all levels of governments to create chaos and social unrest.  Just look at the facts:

  • The U.S. health care system IS NOT ABOUT health care.
    American’s life expectancy is 31st in the world.
    America’s infant survival rate is 34th in the world (38th on the UN list).  Perhaps there is a reason.
    And Childbirth deaths of American moms have reduced our maternal survival rate to 46th in the world.
    Here are my studies on Health Care:
    Socialized health care,
    Regulations of prescription medications: are they Constitutional?
    Child Vaccinations: Mandatory or Voluntary?
  • The U.S. education system IS NOT ABOUT education.
    In standardized tests of 15 year old’s, the U.S. ranks 17th in reading, 23rd in science and 31st in math. Yet the U.S. spends more per pupil than any other country.
    Average childhood IQ rankings now make America 26th in the world. Perhaps there is a reason.
    Public Education is the tenth plank of The Communist Manifesto. Collectivism cannot recognize individual rights, but this is the culture that your children learn.
    The U.S. Supreme Court keeps ruling over, and over and over again that it is the parents’ duty to educate their children. My essay Public Education of Children  contains fundamentals for all homeschoolers.
  • The court system IS NOT ABOUT justice. Perhaps there is a reason.
    America’s Lost Liberty is my essay is about the injustice of Judicial activism.
  • The U.S. welfare system IS NOT ABOUT welfare. It is administered in a way that weakens the poor.
    The UN Poverty Index lists U.S. poverty at 17th.
    OECD ranks the U.S. poverty rate as the lowest in the developed world. Perhaps there is a reason.
    Here is my essay on Welfare. Here are proofs that the U.S. Constitution does not allow for individual welfare.
    Forced charity is NOT charity. It is socialism.  Socialism cannot recognize individual rights. State violence is the inevitable result of ever increasing tax collection.  Welfare encourages single parent families.
  • The U.S. banking system IS NOT ABOUT banking. It has nothing to do with capitalism. Perhaps there is a reason.
    American private banks disappeared in 1869 after the Supreme Court decision in Veazie Bank v. Fenno, 75 US 533.  This paved the way for the Federal Reserve Bank.  A central bank is the fifth plank of the Communist Manifesto.  Communism cannot recognize individual rights, not even in America.
    Banks are the enemy of Capitalism.
  • The regulated U.S. food industry IS NOT ABOUT providing you with wholesome foods. Perhaps there is a reason.
    The U.S. FDA allows 1,452 food additives and an additional 47 color additives. Not including the USDA additives. While the European Union allows only 12 additives. If you eat the typical American diet, you will die a typical American death. Read my blog about the Food Disparagement Laws.
  • Lawyers ARE NOT ABOUT counseling people who are in trouble, or defending rights.  They are destroying us. The U.S. has four percent of the world’s population and 80% of the world’s lawyers. Prices are outrageous. Inflation eats away our savings in a nation where Congress HAD the duty to regulate the value of money (Article 1, section 8).  Prices of health care, education, food, housing, and even death, are all driven up by regulations.  Consumer costs are out of control because we all share in the cost of litigation. This was a 2012 article — It is much worse now:
  • It was even bad in 1978 when we had a chance to eliminate this plague.  U.S. Supreme Court Chief Justice Warren Burger warned that 50% of American Trial Lawyers are too incompetent to represent anyone. TIME Magazine April 10, 1978 quotes Chief Justice Warren Burger warning us:

We may well be on our way to a society overrun by hordes of lawyers, hungry as locusts, and brigades of judges in numbers never before contemplated.”

The same TIME article also tells us:

Chesterfield Smith, a former president of the American Bar Association, said that he would not trust 20% to 25% of all lawyers”


Here is my article on lawyers; Can you trust your lawyer?

If our decay just doesn’t make sense, find out the reasons why.

There is a reason that this word does not appear in the U.S. Constitution.

The Constitution requires a balanced budget.
This essay explains the forgotten history of direct taxes.

The Constitution does not change.
The U.S. Constitution is not a living document.
Here is my full explanation of why we cannot vote to change a Constitutionally limited government. Because we cannot vote to commit mutiny.

Things government forgot to tell you about the Social Security System. You did not want to take care of your own old age planning. Enslavement is what you asked for.

Liberty and Justice for all who can qualify.
Most people disqualified themselves from both freedom and justice.  They waived their rights.  Find out why. 6 pages.
America will not become the Land Of The Free until we are once again The Home Of the Brave.
Hearty individuals need to restore our ethics to traditional values.   Timid submissive wimps needed not apply.  Find out more about your opportunity to restore your birthright.

CIVICS is no longer taught in public schools. We have been deceived about our civic duties ever since 1787.
Here is a civics course in five pages.  A must-read for homeschoolers near age 18.
After more than two centuries of deception, we now have no concept of our responsibility to control our civil servants. And our duty to avoid deception.

How the Lawyers changed marriage.
The lawyers have destroyed marriage, and now anything goes.
According to the U.S. Supreme Court, marriage is a relation for life .
Adultery was once a felony that was also the greatest of civil damages.  Now it appears as a protected right.
Find out more about the planned destruction of America.

Did you waive your right to earn wages, thereby making your wages taxable?
People are deceived out of their rights by legalities they did not understand.
A forced signature is not a signature.  It is a crime to force a signature.
What did you voluntarily sign, under penalty of perjury, on a permanent irrevocable federal document, that tricked you out of your rights?

How do you know if you have waived your rights?
Rights only come with responsibilities.  If you cannot be responsible enough to manage yourself, then DO NOT seek help from the last resort — government “safety-net”.
If you volunteer into the federal government, by availing yourself of federal benefits, you confess that you are ungrateful for your freedoms.
The courts agree that “A citizen of the United States is a citizen of the federal government”– Kitchens v. Steel, 112 F.Supp 383

Civil Law in the U.S.
Here are maxims of law enforced by every court, to explain why we must be controlled.

The Pledge of Allegiance
When a government is overthrown, the people do not automatically owe allegiance to the over-throwers.
Children at government schools must be slowly indoctrinated to violate their parents’ culture.
Now that everyone was taught to automatically worship an artificial entity, the Real ID laws can demand allegiance. Even though the U.S. Supreme Court once declared that forced allegiance is always abhorrent in the U.S.

Are you an enemy of the State?

The Social Compact Theory of government is the theory that you agreed to submit to government.  It did not exist under the U.S. Constitution.

All your life, you have been taught to resist Truth.

Police Powers of the State

Is there an honest lawyer?
Attorneys must attorn.  If you hire an attorney, you have confessed allegiance to their system.
They cannot help you attack the feudal barbarism that enslaves you.

Why do States exist?

Understand your rights.

  • People are deceived out of their rights** by legalities they did not understand.
  • If you don’t know your rights, you will lose them.  If you don’t know how to defend your rights in their courts, you will lose them.
  • You cannot overcome your slave attitude until you understand your rights.  You cannot set yourself free until you know why you were trapped.

Beware of legal lingo.
Don’t be fooled.   Learn how to read legal statutes. They use language tricks to trap you.  The word must means may. The word shall sometimes means may.  Sometimes may means must. The word or means and.  The definition of regulate keeps changing. The word Required does not mean mandatory.  Laws are merely directory if they try to regulate a right.

Driver’s License: Mandatory or Voluntary?
Is “driving” a right or a government granted privilege?
This is my second most popular essay.
And an essay on how lawyers keep changing the definition of the word license. Here.

Getting a Social Security Number is always voluntary.  (More and More and More ).
And here is my SSN-Not-Required PowerPoint presentation.

Selective Service Registration: Mandatory or Voluntary?

Pet licensing: Mandatory or Voluntary?

Income Tax: Mandatory or Voluntary
Graduated Income Tax is the second plank of the Communist Manifesto. Communism cannot recognize individual rights, not even in America.

Knowledge leads to Wisdom
Learn to recognize government deception. Learn to stand up to government bullies and lawyers.

Water rights.
The official “explanation” why all water belongs to the State.

What is wrong with socialism?: Part one. Two millennia of moral ethics reject socialism.
What is wrong with socialism?: Part two.  Why Social justice hypocrites must deny that we are all created equal.  Even though it is their major premise.

Presumed contracts that ensnare you.

Do not be fooled by the lawyer’s term “persons“.  And understand why corporations are persons.

Something is fishy in the United States.  Environmentalists have destroyed the fishing industry. Special court rules prevent them from redress of grievance.

From whom do the kings of the earth exact tribute?
Understand that direct taxation of citizens throughout history has always been prohibited since Biblical times.  And proof that the IRS is not an agency of the U.S. government.

The consequences of remaining silent.

Persons, people, resident, inhabitant, citizen and denizen
These changing definitions mean different things to different people.
Don’t confess to a legal status that you don’t understand.

An Easter Quiz to introduce you to my free PDF download on the only divine credential of Christ.

We were born free with The three rights of all mankind.

  • Here is the understanding of our rights under the original meaning of the U.S. Constitution.
  • Governments are instituted among men to secure Creator-endowed unalienable rights. You had a God-given right to free-will.  Here is proof that the received-law-of-the-land recognized your right to free-will.
  • It is because you had an unalienable right to free-will that governments would protect you from all known methods of compulsion.

We are all created equal.   Freedom in America

  • No equal would ever salute another equal. One only salutes superiors.  Equals will not consent to be governed.
  • This is a short essay to prove that you waived your rights, even your religious liberty.
  • You were free from federal laws until you volunteered.
  • You volunteered by applying for federal benefits.

Rights only come with responsibilitiesGovernment encourages us to be irresponsible. The civil laws reduce an ungrateful freeman to slavery.  Since you confessed that you are ungrateful for your freedom, the civil law in America has a right to control you.

You lost your rights when you voluntarily confessed, that you are an ungrateful socialist who needs government help to manage your life.  Applying for benefits is a confession that you are too irresponsible to manage your own affairs. You become a permanent ward of the federal government.

 I don’t have an essay on Genetically Modified food, but here is a movie that explains the controversy. Here.

* By the term “fake laws” I am referring to laws that are promulgated ONLY to specific persons who are performing government granted privileges. Yet you are tricked into volunteering out of respect for what appears to be authority.

** Many people think that rights come from government. They have been fooled. Rights do NOT come from government. Government can only take away rights. The Bill of Rights DOES NOT grant any rights. The Bill of Rights adds further restrictions on government. The bill itself (Link) stipulates its purpose:

in order to prevent misconstruction or abuse of its powers, that further declaratory and restrictive clauses should be added”.
