Free Lessons for a free America

If Government controls every aspect of your life:
Learn to recognize the disinformation that enslaves you —
Overcome the obstacles —
Map your plan to escape —

By Steven D. Miller

You can be easily tricked out of your rights. 

Most people are deceived out of their rights by bullies that impose cleverly written laws that appear to apply to everyone* — but which only apply to a few government granted privileges.  Learn their dirty tricks and avoid enslavement.

The US Supreme Court tells us that there are three reasons that you are tricked: “an official command, … has some coercive tendency, either because of ignorance of their rights on the part of those whom it purports to command or their natural respect for what appears to be an official command, or because of their reluctance to test the … validity by litigation.” — We will study these later.

Learn to question counterfeit authority. The chaos around us will vanish just as Thomas Jefferson suggested in 1816:

Enlighten the people generally, and tyranny and oppressions of body and mind will vanish like evil spirits at the dawn of day.”

You are under strong delusion.

The lessons presented here will expose lies of “the powers that be” — “the system” — the hidden “they” — “the shadow government” — the Cabal — The deep State — that have infiltrated and control all branches of government.

Understand the deceptions. (The False Narratives. The Disinformation Propaganda. The Gaslighting.) that have been used by dictators for millennia,  Then Repent — turn around — go back to traditional values.

Traditional moral values are the key to freedom. The Bible assures us that the law is not made for the righteous.  This immunity of righteousness was a foundation of the Declaration of Independence that said the Laws of Nature’s God entitle government to exist.  This immunity of righteousness was repeated in Blackstone’s Commentary on the Law, which stated that “neither can any other law possibly exist… for we are all created equal…”  Stand fast in the liberty that was bestowed on America, and be not enslaved again by bondage. — The truth shall set you free — But don’t blame the Globalist agenda.

Global Agenda

Globalists have a one-world government.  Their first 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.
      U.S. Child Autism rates are skyrocketing. One in 2,500 in 1975. One in 250 by 1995. One in 150 in 2007. One in 40 in 2016.
      — Projected to be one in 5 by 2023.  Spot the trend.
      U.S. Child Asthma rates are skyrocketing since 1975 despite much cleaner air. Perhaps there is a reason.
      FOR CHILDREN UNDER 5 years old: one-in-25 had chronic illness in 1972. This is now one-in-six.
      — FOR CHILDREN 6 TO 15 years old: one-in-32 had chronic illness in 1972. This is now one-in-five. Perhaps there is a reason.
      One in five Americans will die from Obesity symptoms, and it is NOT a crisis. Yet less than 300 deaths a year from assault rifles (which includes police raids and suicides) and this is considered to be a health crisis.

      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.
      Bullies run the schools. The worst bullying occurs in schools with anti-bullying policies.
      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 and encourages violence. It is a main source of the chaos you see around you.
    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. I provide ample proofs that the U.S. Constitution does not allow for individual welfare. The General Welfare clause was only for the government functions listed in the Constitution. Learn how early America relied on a system of faith, hope and charity.
    Forced charity is NOT charity. It is socialism.  Government can only give to you what it takes from others by a system of fear, force and violence. Socialism cannot recognize individual rights. You cannot have a free country while you rely on violence against your neighbors.  State violence is the inevitable result of ever increasing tax collection.  Welfare encourages single parent families, greed, sloth, and state violence, “until they degenerate again into perfect savages and find once more a master and monarch.” — just as we were warned two millennia ago.
  • 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 impaired the obligation of contracts with a 10% tax, in their decision Veazie Bank v. Fenno, 75 US 533.  This paved the way for the Federal Reserve Bank and their debt based money.
    A central bank is the fifth plank of the Communist Manifesto.  Communism cannot recognize individual rights, not even in America.
    Inflation eats away our savings in a nation where Congress HAS the duty to regulate the value of money (Article 1, section 8)  — but the Federal Reserve Bank has NO authority to manipulate the value of money. So why does inflation continue to shrink the value of a dollar ?
    Here is my essay on banking: 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.
  • Government makes your food decisions for you in their Codex Alimentarius.  And now Amish farmers are in jail for selling raw milk to their neighbors.
  • You got what you wanted. Now live with it, if you can. (By the way, the original food law was very simple. Food vendors could sell only wholesome food — it was then up to a jury of the vendor’s peers to decide the facts).
  • I don’t have an essay on Genetically Modified food, but here is a movie that explains the controversy. Here.
  • 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. Lawsuits increase the price of every industry they touch because consumer costs must share in the cost of litigation.  This was a 2012 article — it is much worse now.  Back in 1978 we had a chance to eliminate this plague.  U.S. Supreme Court Chief Justice warned us 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: “a former president of the American Bar Association, said that he would not trust 20% to 25% of all lawyers.”
    And now there is talk about using asset forfeiture laws to seize and sell automobiles for going 5 MPH over the speed limit. Welcome to your Novus Ordo Seclorum New World Order.
    Here is my article on lawyers; Can you trust your lawyer?
  • Consumer Protection laws ARE NOT ABOUT protecting the consumer.  Prices are outrageous. Prices of health care, education, food, housing, and even death, are all driven up by regulations. City Planners are always specifying the best products and best features and latest construction practices for all new buildings.  Price is not a consideration — They made your decision for you.  Same thing with health care — the “standard of care” requires the medical community to order tests for rare conditions or risk being sued by lawyers gone wild.
  • The same globalists that infiltrate all levels of all governments (except for a few like China, Iran, Vatican) also dominate large multi-national corporations (WTO, mainstream media, IMF, Federal Reserve, etc) to prevent sovereign nations from exerting even the meekest attempt to remain independent. Our anti-trust function of the Department of Justice is helpless to control them.

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

Join me in pondering the lies that enslave us.

The Word Definition Deceptions.

Ever since the Garden of Eden, those who play god speak with forked tongue.  But just as Eve was sentenced to death for being deceived, universal laws still apply to us today. It is always your duty to know deception.  In 1770 we were warned that If you don’t wise up you “will fall one by one, an unpitied sacrifice in a contemptible struggle.”

  • You can often avoid enslavement by understanding the government’s meaning of their word “Must
  • Law Dictionary definitions are very different from English Dictionary definitions.  Even legislated terms can be different than law dictionary terms.
  • Do not be fooled by the lawyer’s term “persons“.  And understand why corporations are persons.
  • 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. Starting in ancient law there is a push to change your status to a presumed contract. Here is my essay on Presumed contracts that ensnare you.
  • 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.
  • Democracy. There is a reason that this word does not appear in the U.S. Constitution.
  • And my essay on how lawyers keep changing the definition of the word license. Here.

The Authority Deceptions

Throughout the history of mankind, usurpers of legitimate governments bestow themselves with power. Learn to confront their mutiny.
A counterfeit is a close copy of an original.  Learn to recognize the original if you see it. But don’t fall for counterfeit government, credentials, laws, or judicial process.

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.

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. First, it is because congress cannot vote to commit mutiny. Secondly, all laws repugnant to the Constitution are null and void from their inception.

The Myth of Government Benefits

  • Ever since the Garden of Eden, false authorities offer benefits to seduce those who want to be like gods.
    You still have no right to covet your neighbor’s wealth in order to live more comfortably.
    No one can force you to be free — but anyone can entice you to be a dependent.  The received law of the land in America: “a state of dependence will inevitably oblige the inferior to take the will of him, on whom he depends, …”
    Every Law Dictionary will tell you “The civil laws reduce an ungrateful freedman to his original slavery” — Taking benefits is the same as asking for slavery.
  • 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. You got what you wanted.
  • SSNs: Mandatory or Voluntary?
    Getting a Social Security Number is always voluntary.  (More… and More… and More… ).
    And here is my SSN-Not-Required PowerPoint presentation.
  • My essay on Welfare is linked above.
  • 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.
  • 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.

The Myth of License.

License is for licentiousness.

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 over-throwers do not demand allegiance from the people.  Children at government schools must be indoctrinated to violate their parents’ culture. The next generations will be ignorant of traditional values.
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.

Privacy Issues

  • Big Brother is watching you.  You can run but you cannot hide anymore. More…
  • My book on the Census is linked below.
  • The Privacy Act Statements on government forms usually (almost always) lies to you. This is a theme in many of my essays. Don’t be fooled.
  • And don’t be fooled by Government intrusion into your private life. Here is my essay on Privacy Issues in American History.

  • 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 their feudal barbarism that enslaves you.
    All those lawyer jokes are a warning.  Yet the bar association insists that everyone knows that lawyers cannot lie.
  • 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.

You must understand your rights to recognize Government Overreach. 

  • Bullies in high places don’t care what authority they really have.
  • 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.

Selective Service Registration: 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.

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.

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.  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.
