What does the Firearms Act actually tax?

All gun control laws are derived from The National Firearms Act of 1934, as amended. The National Firearms Act of 1934 is a tax law. But a Constitutionally guaranteed right cannot be taxed — so what does the Firearms Act actually tax? I don’t know the answer. Please help me understand this. I suspect that it is the right to use firearms in regulated Commerce (see the Supreme Court’s Lopez case) but I cannot confirm this. 

“All laws which are repugnant to the Constitution are null and void.” — Marbury v. Madison 


“… the performance of duty by constituted officers must not be thwarted. But these agents, servants of a Government and a society whose existence and strength comes from these constitutional safeguards, are serving law when they respect, not override, these guarantees. The claim and exercise of a constitutional right cannot thus be converted into a crime.”
— US Supreme Court in Miller v. US, 230 F2d 486, 489 (1956).

“… reflect the obvious concern that there be no sanction or penalty imposed upon one because of his exercise of constitutional rights”
— Sherer v. Cullen , 481 F2d 945.

Murdock v. Pennsylvania, 319 U.S. 105 (1943), The Supreme Court ruled that

“The state cannot and does not have the power to license, nor tax, a Right guaranteed to the people,”
and
“a license tax—a flat tax imposed on the exercise of a privilege granted by the Bill of Rights. A state may not impose a charge for the enjoyment of a right granted by the federal constitution. Thus, it may not exact a license tax for the privilege of carrying on interstate commerce (McGoldrick v. Berwind-White Co., 309 U.S. 33, 56—58, 60 S.Ct. 388, 397, 398, 84 L.Ed. 565, 128 A.L.R. 876), although it may tax the property used in, or the income derived from, that commerce, so long as those taxes are not discriminatory. Id., 309 U.S. at page 47, 60 S.Ct. at page 392, 84 L.Ed. 565, 128 A.L.R. 876 and cases cited. A license tax applied to activities guaranteed by the First Amendment would have the same destructive effect. It is true that the First Amendment, like the commerce clause, draws no distinction between license taxes, fixed sum taxes, and other kinds of taxes. But that is no reason why we should shut our eyes to the nature of the tax and its destructive influence. The power to impose a license tax on the exercise of these freedoms is indeed as potent as the power of censorship which this Court has repeatedly struck down. ”

In another 1st Amendment case, Shuttlesworth v. Birmingham 394 U.S. 147 (1969), the Supreme Court ruled similarly, that

“And our decisions have made clear that a person faced with such an unconstitutional licensing law may ignore it and engage with impunity in the exercise of the right of free expression for which the law purports to require a license. ”

So what does the Firearms Act actually tax?

Martial Law takeover of courts

U.S. District Courts were not established by the U.S. Constitution.

The checks and balances between branches of government are established by the Constitution. Legislative powers cannot control judicial courts. Judicial courts are NOT subject to a statute of limitations. U.S. District Courts are not judicial courts.

Federal regional power is authorized by Martial Law. Before martial law existed there were only United States Judicial Districts, which were superior to state courts, and only considered constitutional questions. A good discussion of this is the US Supreme Court decision in Ableman v. Booth 62 US 506 (1858) about the fugitive slave act. The reason they only considered constitutional questions is because there could be no federal laws that apply to state citizens, except for the three crimes mentioned in the Constitution. There is no other authority granted to the federal government that affects state citizens.

After martial law was imposed Federal District Courts (federal regional tribunals) were constituted which are inferior to state courts. Federal regional tribunals cannot possess the judicial power of the United States when hearing statutory regional proceedings. The only authority for the supremacy of federal regional power is under Article II Martial law. These Legislative (not judicial) Tribunals are constituted, not “established”, under Article I, Section 8, clause 9 of the US Constitution.

Do not be fooled that they are called courts.
There is no Act of Congress before 1948 naming any court “The United States District Court”, or “The United States Circuit Court of Appeals”. These two Courts did not exist before 1948. In 1948 Congress enacted Title 28 USC into Positive Law. This title creates courts that do not possess the judicial power of the United States. They can be delegated legislative authority only, because the Constitution did not establish them as judicial courts. They can only possess legislative authority, because the legislature created them. (such as Military jurisdiction — Again, a judicial court is established if the Constitution authorizes it under the Judicial Article). They can possess the Military jurisdiction that the martial law amendments (13, 14, 15, 18, 19, 23, 24, 26) specifically say “shall be enforced by Congress”.
These two courts were created under Title 28 acts of Congress. Before 1948 it was impossible for these two Courts to exist.). Again: Article 1, section 8 authorizes Congress “To constitute Tribunals inferior to the supreme Court”. Legislative tribunals are not judicial courts, but they call themselves courts.

You can be dragged into marital law courts if you have applied for, or received, federal welfare. Such as getting a Social Security Number. Start studying by reading my essay on Things the government forgot to tell you about the Social Security System.

666

Repetitive S sounds SSS, in both in the Biblical Hebrew (Strong’s H8337, H8346) and the Greek Sigma and stigma were historically identified as 666. In addition to being the symbol used for the worship of the Egyptian goddess Isis, the goddess of welfare.

The LORD Himself warned you in First Samuel 8:5-17 that government will tax, tax, tax and tax until you cannot stand it (and back then it was just 10%). You were warned that your elected king would take, take, take until society collectively wants God back into their life, but God will not answer your prayers.

There is a reason that God will not hear your prayers. Forced welfare is not charity. Forced welfare covets your neighbors’ wealth and uses the force and threats of violence to take it. Charity is love of neighbor as you would love yourself. Learn the difference.

Solomon’s perpetual tax, tax, tax (the take, take, take that Samuel wrote of) is also relevant to the 666 of Revelation 13. It is identified with the repetitive S sounds SSS.

ΣΣΣ Worship of Isis

Arabic numerals being a comparatively modern invention were not known to, and could not have been used by, the more ancient nations.

This Greek letter  (called Stigma) is used for the number 6. Why this letter and number … both are intimately connected with the ancient Egyptian “mysteries.” The three letters SSS (in Greek ) were the symbol of Isis, which is thus connected with 666. Indeed, the expression of this number, , consists of the initial and final letters of the word  (Christos), Christ, viz.,  and , with the symbol of the serpent between them, . 

— source: http://philologos.org/__eb-nis/chap03.htm#49 (and notice the mention of three sigma, which is SSS or 666, for the ancient Egyptian symbol for Isis. We will discuss this in detail, later.)

Your 666 tax authorization card and number might be suspicious. Join me in pondering the possibilities.

If John the revelator intended a meaning that 666 would be an identification system, the Social Security Number, or equivalent number in your country (SIN in Canada, Tax File number in Austrailia, Social Insurance in England, etc.), is truly your permanent identification number, the number of man. All your other numbers (address, phone, apartment, credit card, licenses, accounts) do not mark you permanently. Do you have a Number symbolically burnt upon you as a mark of ownership?

The number of mankind. Revelation 13:18 translates the Greek word anthropos into the English word man. But anthropos means all of mankind, which is not the Greek aner that would be used to indicate an individual man.

But some people claim that the number 666 must be one man’s number, and is only the number 666, and since everyone’s Social Security Number is different, they claim that therefore the SSN cannot be the Mark of the Beast.

Those of the implant or tattoo crowd will usually agree that a transponder implant or a tattoo will have a unique identifying number for each person, not just one man’s number. They point out that UPC bar code synchronization bars form the number 666.

CORBAN

Some people insist that 666 refers to the 666th chapter of the Bible, even though the original Bible did not have chapters, which were added to the Bible much later in history. And different faiths canonize different books.

Mainstream teaching misconstrues the forced welfare of Roman times and equates the word corban with voluntary welfare of ancient time.

A bronze figure of Apis, the Egyptian sacred Bull of sacrifice, located at Galilee is inscribed with the word ‘korban’ in 3 languages, Greek, Egyptian hieroglyphs, and Aramaic. Pagan Rome also used the word qorban for their forced contributions, because every conquered society had similar sacrifices. Although it can mean sacrifice, the meaning also includes the idea of ‘dedicated to God’, sacred, separate, a gift, and even taboo.

In the Old Testament ‘korban’ is always used in reference to Yahweh rather than the word Elohim. Leviticus. 1:2; Mark 7.11-13; Matthew. 15:5. In Matthew 27:6 it is translated as treasury.

Pilate even used those funds for public works including an aqueduct. The funds included meat, grain etc sacrificed for God but most of the offering were consumed by the people, specifically the needy.

The Hebrew word Corban comes from a root word meaning to bring closer. The system of voluntary sacrifice was intended to bring us closer to Him. To emulate Christ. To feed His sheep and teach the golden rule.

Paul repeated King David’s warning that government charity would be a snare to trap you. Romans 11:9

But forced welfare contributions (socialism) divide us and separate us from Christ, by encouraging greed and idleness among the less faithful. And nullify the word of God according to Christ himself. And after 100+ years of socialized public education, Christians became a minority in a nation their forefathers established. The lessons of our forefathers were replaced by the lessons of daddy government.

The Egyptian sacred Bull Apis represents the welfare system.

Apis is always depicted with a sun disk between his horns. And Isis, the Egyptian mother goddess is always depicted with a crown of Bull Horns with a sun disk between the horns. As we are about to see, this has a direct connection to 666 worship.

ΣΣΣ

More than 150 years ago Biblical numerologist E. W. Bullinger wrote about this alliterative SSS sound in the Greek and linked it to the symbol used in ancient Egyptian worship of Isis.

He wrote:

“666 was the secret symbol of the ancient pagan mysteries connected with the worship of the Devil. It is to day the secret connecting link between those ancient mysteries and their modern revival in Spiritualism, Theosophy, etc. The efforts of the great enemy are now directed towards uniting all into one great whole. The newspapers, worldly and religious, are full of schemes as to such a union. … and are signs of the coming Apostasy. During this age, “Separation” is God’s word for His people, and is the mark of Christ; while “union” and “re-union” is the mark of Antichrist.”

— Source: http://philologos.org/__eb-nis/13666.htm#666

ISIS is always depicted with a Bull Horn crown with a sun disk.

Ancient Egyptians venerated Isis as the mother goddess. Only she can restore the faith by restoring her dead husband Osiris, the man god. Their mythology has it that she has already found and restored all his dismembered parts except for one piece. She must now retrieve his dismembered phallus from the fish god.

She is always depicted wearing a Bull Horn crown with a sun disk.

— A “Queen of Heaven” that Jeremiah warned about in Jeremiah 7:18-19 and Jeremiah 44:17-25

E W Bullinger also wrote about a 666 as mark of ownership,

“The number 6 was stamped on the old mysteries. The great secret symbol consisted of the three letters SSS, because the letter S in the Greek alphabet was the symbol of the figure 6. … Now the word stigma (stigma), means a mark, but especially a mark made by a brand as burnt upon slaves, cattle, or soldiers, by their owners or masters; or on devotees who thus branded themselves as belonging to their gods. It is from stizw, stizo, to prick, or brand with a hot iron. Hence it came to be used of scars or wound-prints, and it is thus used by Paul of his scars, which he regarded as the tokens of his sufferings, the marks which he bore on his body for the sake of his Lord and Master, and marking him as belonging to the one who had bought him (Gal 6:17). “

— source: http://philologos.org/__eb-nis/chap03.htm#49 (and notice his mention of three sigma, which is SSS or 666, for the ancient Egyptian symbol for Isis in his footnote. Isis is worshiped by socialists as the author of forced welfare contributions)

He wrote this long before the existence of socialist programs, the Federal Reserve Bank, Income Tax or Social Security.

Question: do you have a mark of ownership (a tax authorization number*, if you will) directly related to global tax, tax, tax schemes that seem related to Bullinger’s “The efforts of the great enemy are now directed towards uniting all into one great whole. The newspapers, worldly and religious, are full of schemes as to such a union. … and are signs of the coming Apostasy.” That you were warned about in 1st Samuel 8:18 “And you will cry out in that day because of your king whom you have chosen for yourselves, and the LORD will not hear you in that day.” ?

  • which is also a wage authorization number and a banking — to buy or sell — authorization number.

Your congressman represents you. The choice was yours, you got what you asked your congressmen to provide. Pay up. Those who register to vote agree to abide by the outcome, regardless of how abhorrent.

— And don’t ignore Rehoboam’s forced welfare contributions. Corban, nullifies the word of God . Mark 7:11-13. Powerful words from Christ himself. And Rehoboam’s forced contributions divided a nation that has never recovered.

The eye atop the pyramid on the U.S. Great Seal is the eye of Horus — the once blind son of Osiris — overseeing our endeavors. Egyptian prophecy predicts a resurrected Horus ruling the world.

A funny thing happened on the way to the forum.

Does the United States Government really exist? Or was the Constitutional Convention forum a sham?

New York City has a curious history in the scheme of federal oaths of office.

The Constitution was signed in 1787. It was ratified in 1788. New York City was the capital of the United States in 1789, when the original federal officers were sworn into office. But a funny thing happened on the way to the forum.

According to the very first Journal of the Senate, New York failed to send a senator to the senate until the others had sworn their oaths of office to questionable authorities.

An oath is always taken to a superior. An oath is taken to a foreign authority is mutiny against lawful authority. See my book on Oaths.

New York still had NO Senators in the Senate when, on April 30, 1789, it came time to swear in George Washington as President. The Speaker of the House was informed by the Vice President that the oath would be administered by the Chancellor of the state of New York (even though New York was still not represented in either the House or the Senate.)

What is a Chancellor? Answer: A Chancellor represents a high authority.
But what high authority did the non-New-York Senators swear allegiance to?

  • Was the Chancellor “a Roman Catholic priest heading the office in which diocesan business is transacted and recorded.” Or was the Chancellor a representative of the King of England?
  • According to the Encyclopedia Britannica 11th Edition article on Chancellor, Volume V, page 833: “all petitions addressed to the king passed through his hands.”
  • According to Webster’s Dictionary first edition, “From the Roman Empire, this office passed to the church, and hence every bishop has his chancellor“.

It wasn’t until June 3, 1789 that the Senators were sworn to obey the Constitution, but New York was still absent.

It was not until July 25, 1789 that a New York Senator showed up. The second New York Senator showed up a few days later. Did they ever swear to obey the Constitution?

For the first 176 days of “your” federal government, New York did not participate in the Senate. New York Senators had no federal authority, even though NYC was purportedly the Capital of the United States.

By what authority?

Meanwhile over on the House side, According to the Journal of the House of Representatives:
On April 7, 1789 although New York still had NO congressman represented, the House of Representatives requested a non-federal official, the Chief Justice of the State of New York, administer the Congressmen’s oaths of office.

To administer the oaths, the Chief Justice of New York brings with him a New York City representative and a Continental Congressman. New York state congressmen did not participate. Still NO federal authority.

On April 18 we see the names of three New York congressmen on a list of Congressmen, but none are mentioned as present or as having taken their oath of office. One of these three is mentioned later on May 9 as “appeared and took his seat”.

New York had 6 Congressman according to Article 1, section 2. The other three were also members of the Continental Congress, and are not mentioned as having appeared.

What is the possibility that The Constitutional Convention was convened under the Articles of Confederation in order to reorganize the national debt (the 18 million Lira that we borrowed but could not pay — link: http://avalon.law.yale.edu/18th_century/fr-1782.asphttp://avalon.law.yale.edu/18th_century/fr-1782.asp
— the note that Ben Franklin signed with his British title (ESQ) for the purpose of getting enough taxing authority to satisfy the creditor?

The Constitution was constituted by constitutors. Oh my.

BIRTH REGISTRATION

Speaking of getting enough taxing authority to satisfy the creditor; SSNs for newborn children put them up as collateral for the national debt. They are owned as slaves by our creditors. Communist China is our biggest creditor.

In the next paragraph, I am going to quote a Federal Regulation that deceptively refers to the UN as if it was New York City. To understand the legal definition of the term “New York City” as it used in the Code of Federal Regulations, you must first understand that the UN has its headquarters in New York City, and that UNITED NATIONS LAW SUPERSEDES ANY FEDERAL, STATE OR LOCAL LAW “WITHIN THE HEADQUARTERS DISTRICT”. This is according to a federal law known as Title 22 U.S. Code section 287(d); Section 8. Apparently New York City is on UN soil.

While keeping in mind that New York City, as you know it, is not a State, and is not even the Capital of New York State, notice how federal Social Security regulations refer to New York City (the headquarters of the United Nations) as a State:

Title 20, Code of Federal Regulations, Chapter 111 Subpart B 422.103(b)(2): “(2) Birth registration document. SSA may enter into an agreement with officials of a State, including, for this purpose, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, Guam, the U.S. Virgin Islands, and New York City, to establish, as part of the official birth registration process, a procedure to assist SSA in assigning social security numbers to newborn children.”

Perhaps someone can explain the above quoted law. Tell me if I have this right: Social Security numbers have been assigned for eight decades, but now officials of the UN headquarters district can establish a new procedure to assign Social Security numbers. Hummm.

After you read my notes on birth certificates, return here and study this until you convince yourself that a birth certificate is prima facie evidence that you are, at best, a PERSON without birthrights, and at worst, property of a government. Then reread my notes on the GATT treaty requiring SSNs at birth (section 5 of my article on Social Security System, and also read section 9), originally HR5110. Birth certificates are registered, they are not recorded. Securities are registered.

If you have a welfare number you are a commodity in foreign commerce. Second Peter 2:3 (KJV) “And through covetousness shall they with feigned words make merchandise of you. At the soon fall of Babylon merchants will weep when souls cannot be traded in international commerce. Revelation 18:10-20 (and notice the last item of verse 13).

Conclusions:

You do not have the right to buy or sell. All domestic transactions are illegal (because you are an enemy of the state). The Secretary of the Treasury, who’s allegiance is to foreign powers, is already pre-approved to regulate your transactions according to 12 USC 95(b). Your SSN comes from this same authority. Your ID card is be issued by this same authority. The Catholic church has a legitimate claim on their property. By your own authority (signature), on a permanent irrevocable record you registered yourself into their system. This registration is somehow regulated by UN headquarters. You have a number of this authority. You cannot legally buy or sell without permission of this authority. The GATT treaty (with the EEC) requires SSNs at birth. The EEC was established at the Vatican. The National debt is owed to multinational banking cartels. These cartels were originally established by Catholic crusaders and the Knights Templar (when they were banned they became the Knights of Malta, the only non-country to have their passports recognized by the US government). Your national debt cannot be paid. Your future labor has been hypothecated as collateral for the national debt, and has been seized.

Welcome to your Novus Ordo Seclorum new world order.

Pay up.

How will democracy end in the United States?


Answer: Democracy must end the way democracies always end — in a violent death.

Steven Miller originally answered this question June 1, 2019 as a response to this Brookings Institution article that questioned if America’s democracy was threatened. 

  • Democracies must always fail because democracy cannot recognize individual rights.
  • Throughout history, democracies have never been sustainable.
  • Democracies are “spectacles of turbulence and contention.” They are only for those who would take the risk of loosing their rights in exchange for the chance to dominate others.
  • Those who vote for public benefits will use the force of government to seize an ever increasing amount of their neighbors’ wealth.

In 1770, Alexander Tyler, a Scottish history professor at the University of Edinburgh, in his book Cycles of Democracy, had this comparison with the fall of the Athenian Republic some 2,000 years earlier:

‘A democracy will continue until the voters discover that they can vote themselves largesse from the public treasury. From that moment on, the majority always vote for the candidates who promise the most benefits from the public treasury, with the result that a democracy always collapses over a loose fiscal policy, always followed by a dictatorship.’

Frederic Bastiat in Economic Sophisms, Second Series, Chapter 1, The Physiology of Plunder, 1845:

“When plunder becomes a way of life for a group of men living together in a society, they create for themselves in the course of time, a legal system that authorizes it and a moral code that glorifies it.”


James Madison, 1787, Federalist Paper #10:

Democracy is the most vile form of government … democracies have ever been spectacles of turbulence and contention: have ever been found incompatible with personal security or the rights of property: and have in general been as short in their lives as they have been violent in their deaths. …”


Patrick Henry:

“Show me that age and country where the rights and liberties of the people were placed on the sole chance of their rulers being good men without a consequent loss of liberty! I say that the loss of that dearest privilege has ever followed, with absolute certainty, every such mad attempt.”

John Adams, 1815:

“Democracy … while it lasts is more bloody than either [aristocracy or monarchy]. Remember, democracy never lasts long. It soon wastes, exhausts, and murders itself. There is never a democracy that did not commit suicide.”

Greek Historian Polybius, The Histories Of the Roman Republic 220-146 BC, Book 6, section 9: (link: Polybius on Governments)

“But when a new generation arises and the democracy falls into the hands of the grandchildren of its founders, they have become so accustomed to freedom and equality that they no longer value them, and begin to aim at pre-eminence; and it is chiefly those of ample fortune who fall into this error. So when they begin to lust for power and cannot attain it through themselves or their own good qualities, they ruin their estates, tempting and corrupting the people in every possible way. And hence when by their foolish thirst for reputation they have created among the masses an appetite for gifts and the habit of receiving them, democracy in its turn is abolished and changes into a rule of force and violence. For the people, having grown accustomed to feed at the expense of others and to depend for their livelihood on the property of others, as soon as they find a leader who is enterprising but is excluded from the houses of office by his penury, institute the rule of violence; and now uniting their forces massacre, banish, and plunder, until they degenerate again into perfect savages and find once more a master and monarch.”

Abraham Lincoln, September 11, 1858:

“Familiarize yourself with the chains of bondage and prepare your own limbs to wear them. Accustomed to trampling on the rights of others you have lost the genius of your own independence and become the fit subjects of the first cunning tyrant who rises among you.”

Thomas Jefferson. Notes on the State of Virginia, Query 19, 1787. In the paragraph starting at the bottom of page 290:

“Dependence begets subservience and venality, suffocates the germ of virtue, and prepares fit tools for the designs of ambition. … The mobs of great cities add just so much to the support of pure government, as sores do to the strength of the human body. It is the manners and spirit of a people which preserve a republic in vigour. A degeneracy in these is a canker which soon eats to the heart of its laws and constitution.”

[Venality is the condition of being susceptible to bribery or corruption. The use of a position of trust for dishonest gain. The American Heritage Dictionary]

JEFFERSON WAS RIGHT. THE DEEP STATE GOVERNMENT IS A TUMOR THAT EATS TO THE HEART OF THE CONSTITUTION.

The Constitution never allowed democracy.

John Locke’s Second Treatise of Government paragraph 222:

“When government officers corrupt society, the result is “to cut up the government by the roots, and poison the very fountain of public security…”

In the pure pre-democracy era of American government, the beginnings of what we now call “powers that be” or “the shadow government” or “the deep state” were allowed asylum within our borders. But we were warned to watch them very carefully.

“Our system, however, of religious liberty must afford them an asylum; but if they do not put the purity of our elections to a severe trial, it will be a wonder.”
— John Adams letter to Thomas Jefferson May 5, 1816, The Works of John Adams, Vol 10, Letters 1811-1825

IT IS ALL A LIE — THE ENTIRE U.S. DEMOCRACY SYSTEM IS A SCAM.

THE ONLY WAY TO STOP THE DEEP STATE IS TO NEVER WAIVE YOUR RIGHTS. For more information on how we allowed the U.S. government to trick us out of our rights read my essays at Do Not Be Fooled by Government.

Prepare for the future inquisition. Same as the old inquisition.

Everyone can sense the upcoming chaos, inflation, civil war, forced vaccines, food shortages, jail for refusing to comply with intrusive contact tracing, AND the mandatory proof of immunity that eventually becomes permission to buy or sell.

Did you know also, that perilous times shall come? (Second Timothy 3:1) Christians face persecutions, arrest, prison, appear before authorities for Christ name’s sake.  Delivered up to be afflicted.  Delivered up to counsels.  Testify to authorities. (Luke 21:12-15, Matthew 24:9, Mark 13:9,11).

You are completely dependent on those who control the foundations* that you rely on. This is the very definition of Stockholm Syndrome.  Just like the early Christians, and today’s Amish, you will need to join a like-minded community to provide the foundations of your own making, without reliance on “the powers that be.”
* Jobs, food, healthcare, energy, banking, justice, education, travel. All these are controlled by regulations of the Powers That Be to justify their “requirement” for safety. But safety is not our heritage. 

Ben Franklin quote inscribed on a plaque in the stairwell of the Statute of Liberty:

“Those who would give up essential Liberty, to purchase a little temporary Safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety.”

What can be done to delay the injustice? Answer: learn to stand up to government bullies.

  • Freedom is not Free.
  • It requires action and risk. You must stand up to bullies who will take your liberty. Letters to congressmen and public protests alone can never restore the purpose of government — Liberty and Justice for ALL.
  • It was never the the purpose of government to deny freedom to 80% of Americans who cannot afford a lawyer.

I recommend a law course for those who do not trust lawyers. If you have a lawyer — understand what he should be doing so you can control him, and know when to fire him. If you don’t have a lawyer — understand what YOU should be doing. All the basic lawyer procedures are explained in “How To Win In Court” self-help course. This is a step-by-step guide on how to win in court. It has pro se tactics, and forms for civil cases. Learn how to stand up to tyrants (even judges).
An online law course developed by a lawyer. Learn enough legal procedure to win your case. It has helped me. It might be your get out of jail card.
Liberty is what we seek.
•Liberty to run a business.
•Liberty to enjoy life.
•and even Liberty to take our own risks and suffer the consequences.

Sadly, there is no liberty or justice for ALL. The deep-state lawyers have infiltrated all branches of government so that “ALL” do not get Justice in America.
Liberty without Justice is impossible. Justice is a sacred right. Justice should not be a business.
Take the “justice business” away from lawyers once and for all. Open the courthouse doors to EVERYONE.
If you are an unfortunate victim of government overreach, I recommend this online law course. I used what I’ve learned to stop a $60,000 lawsuit by a lawyer — with a “flurry of paperwork” that exposed his lies.

Why is a centuries old U.S. Constitution still valid when things are clearly a lot different now?

Because it does not change. The U.S. Constitution is still valid because Congressmen cannot commit mutiny against their oath-of-office.

If you want a change, you will have to risk death to overthrow the government, just like Lincoln advised us. In his First Inaugural Address, he told us that whenever citizens “grow weary of the existing government, they can exercise their constitutional right of amending it, or their revolutionary right to dismember or overthrow it.” If you don’t understand why a president would tell citizens they can overthrow government, then you have been blinded. Perhaps you should pay attention.

HERE are reasons why the Constitution CANNOT CHANGE.

Nobody who swears an oath-of-office to uphold it can deny his oath by suggesting a change. Parliamentary procedure does not legalize mutiny.

Thomas Jefferson letter to William Johnson, 12 June 1823, (The Writings of Thomas Jefferson, Volume 7, Cambridge Library Collection, page 296):

“On every question of construction carry ourselves back to the time when the Constitution was adopted, recollect the spirit manifested in the debates, and instead of trying what meaning may be squeezed out of the text or invented against it, conform to the probable one in which it was passed.”

The 1905 U.S. Supreme Court, South Carolina v. U.S., 199 US 437:

“The Constitution is a written instrument. As such, its meaning does not alter. That which it meant when it was adopted, it means now…”

In the 1966 famous case of Miranda v. Arizona the Supreme Court said of our rights

“And in the words of Chief Justice Marshall, they were secured “for ages to come, and . . . designed to approach immortality as nearly as human institutions can approach it,” (quoting Cohens v. Virginia, 6 Wheat. 264, 387 in 1821).

The 1901 Supreme Court in Downes v. Bidwill, 182 U.S. 244, ruled:

“It will be an evil day for American liberty if the theory of a government outside of the supreme law of the land finds lodgment in our constitutional jurisprudence. No higher duty rests upon this court than to exert its full authority to prevent all violation of the principles of the Constitution.”

The Federalist Papers are not just some antiquated editorial opinion, they are, according to the Supreme Court in Cohens v. Virginia, the exact record of the intent of the Constitution.
Cohens v. Virginia 19 U.S. (6 Wheat.) 264 at page 418:

“The opinion of the Federalist has always been considered as of great authority. It is a complete commentary on our constitution; and is appealed to by all parties in the questions to which that instrument has given birth. Its intrinsic merit entitles it to this high rank; and the part two of its authors performed in framing the constitution, put it very much in their power to explain the views with which it was framed. These essays having been published while the constitution was before the nation for adoption or rejection, and having been written in answer to objections founded entirely on the extent of its powers, and on its diminution of State sovereignty, are entitled to the more consideration where they frankly avow that the power objected to is given, and defend it.”

The U.S. Supreme Court, Byars v. U.S., 273 US 28 (1927) repeating their earlier decision in Boyd.

“…and it is the duty of the courts to be watchful for the constitutional rights of the citizen, and against any stealthy encroachments thereon.”

The U.S. Supreme Court, Headliner note to Cohens v. Virginia, 19 U.S. 264

“The Supreme Court will construe provisions of Constitution which appear to be repugnant, so as to preserve the true intent and meaning of the Constitution… “

The U.S. Supreme Court, Boyd v. United States, 116 US 616, Page 635

“illegitimate and unconstitutional practices get their first footing in that way, namely, by silent approaches and slight deviations from legal modes of procedure. It is the duty of courts to be watchful for the constitutional rights of the citizen, and against any stealthy encroachment thereon. “

The U.S. Supreme Court, Norton vs. Shelby County 118 US 425 page 442

“An Unconstitutional Act is not law; it confers no rights: it imposes no duties; affords no protection; it creates no office; it is in legal contemplation, as inoperative as though it had never been passed.”

The U.S. Supreme Court, Miranda vs. Arizona, 384 US 436 page 491

“Where rights secured by the Constitution are involved, there can be no rule making or legislation which would abrogate them.”

The U.S. Supreme Court, Marbury vs. Madison. 5 US 137: All laws which are repugnant to the Constitution are null and void

U.S. Supreme Court in Olmstead v. United States, 277 U.S. 438, 469-471:

“In a government of laws, the existence of the government will be imperiled if it fails to observe the law scrupulously. Our government is the potent, the omnipresent teacher. For good or for ill, it teaches the whole people by its example. Crime is contagious. If the government becomes a lawbreaker, it breeds contempt for law; it invites every man to become a law unto himself; it invites anarchy.”

DO NOT BE FOOLED. The U.S. Constitution is still valid.

Amendments cannot change the Constitution. They can only add to the Constitution. Article 5 allows amendment TO, but never an amendment OF the Constitution.

Do not be fooled by the 21st Amendment cancelling the 18th Amendment.

REAL amendments cannot change. REAL amendments are automatically the Supreme Law of the Land that judges in every state are bound thereby — Article 6, second paragraph.


The 18th Amendment section 2: “The Congress and the several States shall have concurrent power to enforce this article by appropriate legislation”. It was one of those Martial Law Amendments that is forced on States even if it is contrary to State Constitutions.

The eight Martial Law Amendments (13,14,15, 18, 19, 23, 24, 26) all state that the Congress enforces them (even if the states don’t like it). Read more about the Martial Law Amendments Here.

The 18th Amendment was not an amendment that is automatically the Supreme Law of the Land. It was forced on the states after the 17th Amendment abandoned all hope of States controlling the Federal government that they created.

U.S. Constitution is still valid.

John Locke’s Second Treatise of Government.

John Locke’s Second Treatise of Government published in 1690 became the basis for the U.S. Declaration of Independence. If you want to understand the Laws of Nature and the Laws of Nature’s God, then start here.

The law of nature requires us to supervise our civil servants, and if they fail to enforce the divine law of nature, we are restored to the nature that we were in prior to creating government, for we are all equal. See Locke’s Second Treatise paragraphs 135, 149, 171, 209. After all, every law dictionary will tell you Legibus sumptis desinentibus, lege naturae utendum est. When laws imposed by the state fail, we must resort to the laws of nature.

John Locke’s Second Treatise Of Government has as his last chapter, the topic of Dissolution of Government. The suggestion that government would not obey the laws would be “politics inconceivable to human capacity, and inconsistent with human society.”
— If this doesn’t describe your Land of the Free, find out why.

John Locke said in paragraph 57: “for nobody can be under a law, which is not promulgated to him” and later in paragraph 73 when children become 21 years old they can choose which government to place themselves under…
— If this doesn’t describe your Land of the Free, find out why.

By accepting welfare (such as public schooling or even Social Security) you might just be waiving almost all your rights. Locke questioned in his Second Treatise of Government Chapter 15 “For what compact [contract] can be made with a man that is not master of his own life?” It is no wonder a judge wants you to be represented by competent counsel. It is presumed that you are insane if you expect to have rights while also availing yourself of the benefits of being a ward of the state.

John Locke’s Second Treatise of Government:

166 “…it is impossible anybody in the society should ever have a right to do the people harm.”

149: “the community perpetually retains a supreme power of saving themselves from the attempts and designs of anybody, even of their legislators, whenever they be so foolish or so wicked as to lay and carry on designs against the liberties and properties of the subject.”

227: when “legislators act contrary to the end for which they were constituted, those who are guilty are guilty of rebellion. … [by] introducing a power which the people hath not authorised, actually introduce a state of war, which is that of force without authority; … And.. legislators themselves… who were set up for the protections and preservation of the people, their liberties and properties… [put] themselves into a state of war with those who made them the protectors and guardians of their peace, are … with the greatest aggravation, rebellantes, rebels.”

222 “The reason why men enter into society is the preservation of their [lives, liberty and] property …. it can never be supposed to be the will of the society that the legislative should have a power to destroy that which every one designs to secure by entering into society, and for which the people submitted themselves to legislators of their own making; whenever the legislators endeavour to take away and destroy the [lives, liberty and] property of the people,… … they put themselves into a state of war with the people, who are thereupon absolved from any farther obedience, … Whensoever, therefore, the legislative shall transgress this fundamental rule of society, and …grasp …or put into the hands of any other, an absolute power over the lives, liberties, and estates of the people, by this breach of trust they forfeit the power the people had put into their hands for quite contrary ends, and it devolves to the people [to] provide for their own safety and security, which is the end for which they are in society…. [this] holds true also concerning the [executive branch], who having a double trust put in him… acts also contrary to his trust when he employs the force, treasury, and offices of the society to corrupt… cut up the government by the roots, and poison the very fountain of public security… ”

233 “Must the people then always lay themselves open to the cruelty and rage of tyranny? Must they see their cities pillaged, and laid in ashes, their wives and children exposed to the tyrant’s lust and fury, and themselves and families reduced by their king to ruin, and all the miseries of want and oppression, and yet sit still? Must men alone be debarred the common privilege of opposing force with force, which nature allows so freely to all other creatures for their preservation from injury? I answer: Self-defence is a part of the law of nature; nor can it be denied the community, even against the king himself”

The greatest threat to democracy?

Steven Miller ·

The greatest threat to American democracy is the overwhelming truth that it is not sustainable.

Democracy must remain threatened so that America can survive. Democracy cannot recognize individual rights.

Democracy has no place in America. The word Democracy is not in the Constitution.

Actions speak louder than words. Nobody who claims that we are created equal can vote to create a superior master-provider-protector-lord.

Even in the pagan Roman Empire, everyone knew the maxim of law that a democracy is prohibited. Multitudo errantium non parit errori patrociuum “The multitude of those who err furnishes no excuse for error.” This maxim of law has been perpetuated through the millennia to us today, but you ignore it. Ignorance of the law is no excuse. (Maxim of law: Ignorantia juris quod quisque tenetur scire, neminem excusat. Ignorance of a law, which every one is bound to know, excuses no man).

Governments are instituted among men to secure rights. The Constitution secures the blessings of liberty. It guarantees a republic form of government, NOT a democracy. No form of collectivism can respect individual rights.

Collectivists covet their neighbor’s money through taxation and usury. The tenth Commandment prohibits coveting anything that is your neighbor’s. Once the cancer of covetousness metastasizes into a democracy, no society can recover. There is no amount of government regulations that can cure the corruption, greed, avarice, sloth, gluttony, deception and perversion that is spread by democracy. If you insist on participating, you will find yourself dominated by those who refuse to manage their own lives.

We knew what would happen to government that allows the greedy to vote. Voting for welfare is a conflict of interest. John Locke’s Second Treatise of Government, section 222, tells us that when government officers corrupt society, the result is “to cut up the government by the roots, and poison the very fountain of public security…”

Throughout history, The God of the Bible always uses brutal pagans to take his people captive for centuries at a time. America is not going to be any different.

You do NOT want you to be tempted to rule your neighbors, nor be corrupted by the power to rule your neighbors, nor be subservient to your neighbors.

EQUAL NEIGHBORS

Love your neighbor as yourself, there is no greater commandment. This is the essence of being created equal.

Every July Fourth Americans celebrate an anniversary of the signing of a famous document that told the world we had a right to be free and independent because we hold the truth that all men are created equal. The truth that we are created equal is the received law of the land in America.

Democracy denies that we have a right to be free and independent. Instead of equal, a democracy holds the truth that the mob is King.

Christians cannot covet. In order to gain from the gifts, gratuities, and benefits of mob rule, one must be willing to take something from his neighbor. By the phrase “willing to take something from his neighbor” I mean forcibly take from your neighbor if he fails to pay. You hired the tax collector to levy his wages, seize his bank account, and evict him with the force of guns if necessary, and sell his house in order for you to obtain benefits at his expense. Again: Christians cannot covet.

You become dependent on the state benefactors. Your greed, avarice and sloth has created the world you see around you. You now equate freedom with safety and comfort. Your God-given responsibilities are now an intolerable burden.

More information is in my book The Citizen Cannot Complain.

ARE ALL MEN ARE CREATED EQUAL?

The first sentence of the Declaration of Independence says that it is the law of Nature and the law of Nature’s God that entitles the U,S to exist. Back then this was known as the Divine Law of NatureA four volume law textbook Blackstone’s Commentaries On The Law was the preeminent law textbook in the English Colonies. It is considered by the Supreme Court to be part of the “received law of the land”. It explains in the introduction that all natural and legislated laws come from divine law:

“It is binding over all the globe in all countries, and at all times; no human laws are of any validity, if contrary to this: and such of them as are valid derive all their force, and all their authority, mediately or immediately, from this original… Neither could any other law possibly exist; for a law always supposes some superior who is to make it; and in a state of nature we are all equal, without any other superior but him who is the author of our being.”

Merely thinking that a collective can make a choice for you is the opposite of “all men are created equal”

DOMINATION

The LORD gave you a free will. Domination is the opposite.

Quakers warned us that all forms of forced thought control (domination) is “… superstitions, will-worship, and abominable idolatry in the sight of God”. (Quaker Apology # 11). Paul confessed in Acts 26:10 that he executed Christians when he cast his ballot against them. Thomas Jefferson was “against every form of tyranny over the mind of man”. You welcomed tyranny when you were the tyrant, and now you complain. Collectivism in any of its forms cannot recognize individual rights.

The Constitution was written in the Quaker State, and the founding fathers would be well aware of traditional Quaker fundamentals. Quaker Apology #14 by Robert Barclay (1678):

“Concerning the power of the Civil Magistrate, in matters purely religious, and pertaining to the conscience:
Since God hath assumed to himself the power and dominion of the conscience, who alone can rightly instruct and govern it, therefore it is not lawful for any whatsoever, by virtue of any authority or principality they bear in the government of this world, to force the consciences of others; and therefore all killing [executions], banishing, fining, imprisoning, and other such things, which men are afflicted with, for the alone exercise of their conscience, or difference in worship or opinion, proceedeth from the spirit of Cain the murderer, and is contrary to the Truth; provided always, that no man, under the pretence of conscience, prejudice his neighbour in his life or estate; or do anything destructive to, or inconsistent with human society; in which case the law is for the transgressor, and justice to be administered upon all, without respect of persons”

He cited Luke 9:55-56; Matthew 7:12,29; Titus 3:10

Many people are fooled into thinking that the United States is a democracy. The US Constitution, Article 4, section 4 guarantees to every inhabitant a REPUBLICAN form of government.

THE U.S. CONSTITUTION DOES NOT CONTAIN THE WORD DEMOCRACY because democracy has no place in America. You have no right to dominate others. Others have very limited right to dominate you.

In a democracy, a majority votes to force their will on others. But in a nation where everyone is created equal, those who know right from wrong will never covet their neighbors’ goods, will not plunder the innocent, will not exercise dominion over others.

Democracy is two wolves and a lamb voting on what to have for dinner.

Any political party that seeks to dominate others is evil. Don’t send your benefactors out to take money (taxes) from your neighbors. The Constitution controls government, not people. Anyone who participates in an election agrees to the outcome, regardless of how abhorrent. Don’t dominate others. Do unto others, as you would have them do unto you. Using force (the force of law) to bleed your neighbors dry is evil. Using the force of law to regulate your neighbors out of business is evil.

In a republic, everyone has rights. Your Constitution guaranteed you a republican form of government. In a democracy, the misguided mobocracy forces their will on the minority. The word “Republic” comes from the Latin idiom `Libera res publica’, which means “free from things public”.

HISTORY

Bouvier’s 1870 Law Dictionary, Vol 1, page 13: “The term republic, res publica, signifies the state independently of its form of government.”

Frederic Bastiat in Economic Sophisms, Second Series, Chapter 1, The Physiology of Plunder, 1845:

“When plunder becomes a way of life for a group of men living together in a society, they create for themselves in the course of time, a legal system that authorizes it and a moral code that glorifies it.”

Alexander Hamilton:

“We are a Republic. Real Liberty is never found in despotism or in the extremes of Democracy.”

James Madison, 1787, Federalist Paper #10:

“Democracy is the most vile form of government … democracies have ever been spectacles of turbulence and contention: have ever been found incompatible with personal security or the rights of property: and have in general been as short in their lives as they have been violent in their deaths.
Theoretical politicians who have patronized this species of government, have erroneously supposed that by reducing mankind to a perfect equality in their political rights, they would at the same time be perfectly equalized and assimilated in their possessions, their opinions, and their passions”

Of course democracies are “spectacles of turbulence and contention.” They are only for those who would take the risk of loosing their rights in exchange for the chance to dominate others.

Patrick Henry:

“Show me that age and country where the rights and liberties of the people were placed on the sole chance of their rulers being good men without a consequent loss of liberty! I say that the loss of that dearest privilege has ever followed, with absolute certainty, every such mad attempt.”

Fisher Ames, who was the author of the words of the First Amendment, said:

“A democracy is a volcano which conceals the fiery materials of its own destruction. These will produce an eruption and carry desolation in their way.”

John Adams, 1815:

“Democracy … while it lasts is more bloody than either [aristocracy or monarchy]. Remember, democracy never lasts long. It soon wastes, exhausts, and murders itself. There is never a democracy that did not commit suicide.”

John Marshall, Chief Justice of the Supreme Court:

“Between a balanced Republic and a democracy, the difference is like that between order and chaos.”

Supreme Court Justice Learned Hand, Spirit of Liberty

“I often wonder whether we do not rest our hopes too much upon constitutions, upon laws and courts. These are false hopes, believe me; these are false hopes. Liberty lies in the hearts of men and women; when it dies there, no Constitution, no law, no court can save it.”

Ralph Waldo Emerson speech, August 31, 1837:

“He who can alter my state of mind, is my master.”

When we were convinced that it was no longer a sin to desire benefits at the expense of our neighbor “Faith, Hope, and Charity began to flee out of our Church”. [The Twelve Conclusions of the Lollards, The First Conclusion.]

It is this sin of coveting our neighbor’s goods, even a shoelace (Genesis 14:23), that separates us from the order of Melchizedek and the inheritance of the kingdom. Each man becomes a new tyrant to freedom and liberty, rejecting God and cursing our children with debt and teaching them to “receive the reward of unrighteousness… with covetous practices, cursed children”. [2 Peter 2:13-14]

Greek Historian Polybius The Histories Book 6, section 9:
link: http://www.uvm.edu/~bsaylor/classics/polybius6.html
or http://penelope.uchicago.edu/Thayer/E/Roman/Texts/Polybius/6*.html

But when a new generation arises and the democracy falls into the hands of the grandchildren of its founders, they have become so accustomed to freedom and equality that they no longer value them, and begin to aim at pre-eminence; and it is chiefly those of ample fortune who fall into this error. So when they begin to lust for power and cannot attain it through themselves or their own good qualities, they ruin their estates, tempting and corrupting the people in every possible way. And hence when by their foolish thirst for reputation they have created among the masses an appetite for gifts and the habit of receiving them, democracy in its turn is abolished and changes into a rule of force and violence. For the people, having grown accustomed to feed at the expense of others and to depend for their livelihood on the property of others, as soon as they find a leader who is enterprising but is excluded from the houses of office by his penury, institute the rule of violence; and now uniting their forces massacre, banish, and plunder, until they degenerate again into perfect savages and find once more a master and monarch.

“A simple democracy is the devil’s own government.” 1,2 This must have been a popular saying. This quote is often attributed to several American patriots. Most often to Benjamin Rush, or Jedidiah Morse (the “father of American Geography”), but it was actually written by a Presbyterian pastor.

  1. L.H. Butterfield, ed., The Letters of Benjamin Rush, vol. 1 (Princeton: Princeton University Press, 1951), 454, quoting John Joachim Zubly, Presbyterian pastor and delegate to Congress, in a letter to David Ramsay in March or April 1788.
  2. William Elder, Questions of the Day, (Philadelphia: Henry Baird publisher, 1871) page 175, attributes the quote to Thomas Jefferson.

A CANCER SORE WHICH EATS TO THE HEART OF THE CONSTITUTION

Notes on the State of Virginia, Query 19, 1787. Thomas Jefferson. In the paragraph starting at the bottom of page 290:

“Dependence begets subservience and venality, suffocates the germ of virtue, and prepares fit tools for the designs of ambition. … The mobs of great cities add just so much to the support of pure government, as sores do to the strength of the human body. It is the manners and spirit of a people which preserve a republic in vigour. A degeneracy in these is a canker which soon eats to the heart of its laws and constitution.”

[Venality is the condition of being susceptible to bribery or corruption. The use of a position of trust for dishonest gain. The American Heritage Dictionary]

Why would he mention subservience?

SUBSERVIENCE.

Actions speak louder than words. You are a slave to whom you obey. (Romans 6:16). Once you salute your new master you have acknowledged that you are the inferior, no longer equal.

Welcome to your Novus Ordo Seclorum secular new world order. Same as the old world order.

The words ballot and bullet are etymologically the same word. You have no right to dominate others with a ballot, or a bullet. Both are just as evil. We are endowed by our Creator with a free will. You had no respect for the rights of others. By registering to vote, you declare that you want a chance to dominate others. You got what you wanted. You consented to be governed. You wanted a system of domination. By registering to vote, you consented to the outcome. Again: you got what you wanted. You have no right to complain.

YOU GOT WHAT YOU WANTED

Do you have a God-given right to be protected against the consequences of your acts? Do you have a right to be protected against God’s discipline? Which god protects you?

Maxim of Law: Ex dolo malo non oritur actio. He has invited what has come, and he must accept it.

The Supreme Court in U.S. v Cruikshank case, 92 U.S. at 551:

“It is the natural consequence of a citizenship which owes allegiance to two sovereignties, and claims protection from both. The citizen cannot complain, because he has voluntarily submitted himself to such a form of government.”

REGISTERING TO VOTE

Those registered to vote agree to the outcome of the election, no matter how abhorrent.

If there is a bond issue on the ballot, then those who are registered to vote put up their real estate is collateral for the debt. Even after they sell their interest in the property to foreign buyers, the original collaterial is subrogated until the bond is paid.

Those registered to vote are represented. They have entered society. Once represented Procurationem adversus nulla est proæscriptio. There is no prescription for procuration. If you are represented, then you cannot be damaged by your representative. Your submission must be a complete submission with the full understanding that you cannot be damaged by your representative.

UNREASONING MOBS DEMANDING YOUR MONEY?

Democracy killed Christ. “But the chief priests and elders persuaded the multitude that they should ask Barabbaas, and destroy Jesus.” Matthew 27:20. Pilate said publicly that he found no fault in Christ (Luke 23:4 & 14). Pilate publicly washed his hands to show that he had no jurisdiction, “saying, I am innocent of the blood of this just person: se ye to it” (Matthew 27:24) but the democracy executed Christ. Pilate liked Christ Jesus and kept trying to release him (Luke 23:20), but that did not matter; he did not dare act contrary to the will of the vast majority. Voters, by a voice vote, determined that Christ should be executed.

Unreasoning mobs do not have authority.

The sovereign people are independent of the administrating governments in all republics. Freemen are free from civil authority. `Libera res publica’. A Roman officer cannot arrest a Roman citizen. Acts 22:27,29. Freemen are free from civil authority.

In a democracy, which we have had since 1933, you can vote to plunder others and demand benefits. You too can exercise your democratic rights to persecute others. But, you must suffer the consequences.

You have a right to create any kind of political system, But, this time, you delegated to your servants a power to create gods/saviors/benefactors to provide for you, protect you and lord over you. Isn’t this the essence of creating (graven) false images of a god to be worshiped?

Every voter has agreed to abide by the outcome of the election, even if he finds it abhorrent. Governments’ derive their powers from the consent of the governed. You have consented to be governed. So you’ve agreed, by registering to vote, that any misguided majority determines your moral values. Even the Supreme Court (92 US@551) said: “The citizen cannot complain, because he has voluntarily submitted himself to such a form of government.” Registered voters consent to be taxed. Conversely, there would be no taxation without representation. Memorize this legal maxim: “He who consents to an act is not damaged by it.” Did your government school teach this?

The Christian must not be of the worldly society. [a classic argument for Christians to not participate in society is Leo Tolstoy’s What I Believe published in Russia in 1884.]

If you are a registered voter, you have consented to the results of the election. If an election passed a bond issue, then you agreed to have a lien on your property until the bond is paid, even if you didn’t vote.

CONFLICT OF INTEREST

Those with a conflict of interest will insist on dominating their neighbors.

`Conflict of interest’ is legal terminology for those who can influence a government decision to enrich themselves. This is not limited to Elected Officials or civil servants. Welfare partakers are, by voting, also influencing government to receive their check. Anyone who receives a government check, be it a paycheck or an entitlement check has a conflict of interest that prohibits them from voting. Voting becomes, for them, a government granted privilege that can be revoked at any time. On the other hand, Government’s sovereign masters have a right to control their servants. Jura Summi Imperii.

You are no longer in a Republic. Prove it to yourself. Ask yourself some questions: Can a majority of Congressmen, and a judge now conspire to take all your rights from you? Can a city government prohibit you from owning a dog unless you first beg for permission and pay a fee? Can you repair your front porch without begging for permit and paying a fee?

Democracy cannot be considered as a form of government. Although it starts as a form of government, it quickly dissolves into corruption. The moment a politician makes a promise, is the moment democracy ceases to be a form of government. To use a public office to grant favors to those who elect you is corruption. It is the very definition of corruption. Go look it up in a law dictionary. DEMOCRACY IS CORRUPTION. According to John Locke’s Second Treatise of Government section 222 the use of a public office to influence your electors will “cut up the government by the roots, and poison the very fountain of public security…”

In 1770, Alexander Tyler, a Scottish history professor at the University of Edinburgh, in his book Cycles of Democracy, had this comparison with the fall of the Athenian Republic some 2,000 years earlier:

‘A democracy cannot exist as a permanent form of government. A democracy will continue until the voters discover that they can vote themselves largesse from the public treasury. From that moment on, the majority always vote for the candidates who promise the most benefits from the public treasury, with the result that a democracy always collapses over a loose fiscal policy, always followed by a dictatorship.’

Note his warning that democracies are “always followed by a dictatorship”.

The LORD Himself warned you in 1 Samuel 8:5-17 that government will tax, tax and tax until you cannot stand it (and back then it was just 10%). You were warned that your elected king would take, take, take until society collectively wants God back into their life, but God will not answer your prayers (God honored your free-will, you got what you wanted, stop complaining). 1st Samuel 8:18 “And you will cry out in that day because of your king whom you have chosen for yourselves, and the LORD will not hear you in that day.”

Socialist bullies gang up to force their will on you. We called it fascism. They cannot use a Republic.

Government exists to secure the blessings of liberty. Don’t claim to live in a free country if you have never seen liberty.

* Jobs, food, healthcare, energy, banking, justice, education, travel. All these are controlled by regulations of the Powers That Be to justify their “requirement” for safety. But safety is not our heritage. 

Ben Franklin quote inscribed on a plaque in the stairwell of the Statute of Liberty:

“Those who would give up essential Liberty, to purchase a little temporary Safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety.”

What can be done to delay the injustice? Answer: learn to stand up to government bullies.

  • Freedom is not Free.
  • It requires action and risk. You must stand up to bullies who will take your liberty. Letters to congressmen and public protests alone can never restore the purpose of government — Liberty and Justice for ALL.
  • It was never the the purpose of government to deny freedom to 80% of Americans who cannot afford a lawyer.

I recommend a law course for those who do not trust lawyers. If you have a lawyer — understand what he should be doing so you can control him, and know when to fire him. If you don’t have a lawyer — understand what YOU should be doing. All the basic lawyer procedures are explained in “How To Win In Court” self-help course. This is a step-by-step guide on how to win in court. It has pro se tactics, and forms for civil cases. Learn how to stand up to tyrants (even judges).
An online law course developed by a lawyer. Learn enough legal procedure to win your case. It has helped me. It might be your get out of jail card.

Liberty is what we seek.
•Liberty to run a business.
•Liberty to enjoy life.
•and even Liberty to take our own risks and suffer the consequences.

Sadly, there is no liberty or justice for ALL. The deep-state lawyers have infiltrated all branches of government so that “ALL” do not get Justice in America.

Liberty without Justice is impossible. Justice is a sacred right. Justice should not be a business.
Take the “justice business” away from lawyers once and for all. Open the courthouse doors to EVERYONE.

If you are an unfortunate victim of government overreach, I recommend this online law course. I used what I’ve learned to stop a $60,000 lawsuit by a lawyer — with a “flurry of paperwork” that exposed his lies.

Warning to peaceful protestors

Officers are not trained to recognize the difference between pacifism, non-resistance, non-violence, non-cooperation, and conscientious objection. Peaceful protestors beware.

They only recognize force. In their eyes, their might makes right.

Actions speak louder than words. If you obey an unlawful order the legal doctrine of estopple then prohibits you in court from claiming your liberty was damaged. You volunteered.

Even cooperating with fingerprinting or mug shot waives your rights to redress grievance. You volunteered. Maxims of law regarding volunteers:
• “Volenti non fit injuria”
• “That to which a man consents cannot be considered an injury.”
• “He who consents to an act is not damaged by it.”
• “He who consents cannot receive an injury”
• “To him consenting no injury is done.”

Estopple is partially defined in Black’s Law Dictionary as:
“A man’s own act or acceptance stops or closes his mouth to allege or plead the truth”. (partial definition within a page long definition).

Estopple, according to the law dictionary:
–Arises when one is concluded and forbidden by law to speak against his own act or deed.
–An inconsistent position, attitude or course of conduct
–A bar or impediment which precludes allegation or denial of a certain fact or state of facts in consequence of previous allegation or denial or conduct or admission, or in consequence of a final adjudication of the matter in a court of law.

When an officer barks out an illegal order, your duty is to risk death to correct the officer. Peaceful protestors beware.

Second Timothy 2:23 “But avoid foolish and ignorant disputes, knowing that they generate strife.”
But Second Timothy 2 Verses 24 and 25 continue. We are not to quarrel but to correct those who oppose themselves, in the chance that God will grant them repentance so that they may know the truth.

If you fail to correct the officer’s illegal actions, several things happen.

Brookfield Const. Co. v. Stewart, 284 F.Supp 94:
“An officer who acts in violation of the Constitution ceases to represent the government.”
In other words, he is a brutal vicious thug without any authority.

• Plummer v. Indiana, 136 Ind. 306: Citizens may resist unlawful arrest to the point of taking an arresting officer’s life if necessary (not an exact quote)
• Housh v. Illinois, 75 Ill 491: “An arrest without warrant … or that fails to allege a crime is without jurisdiction, and one who is being arrested, may resist arrest and break away. If the arresting officer is killed by one who is so resisting, the killing will be no more than an involuntary manslaughter.”
• W.V. v. Gum, 69 SE 463: “What rights then has a citizen in resisting an unlawful arrest? An arrest without warrant is a trespass, an unlawful assault upon the person, and how far one thus unlawfully assaulted may go in resistance is to be determined, as in other cases of assault…. And the authorities are uniform that where one is about to be unlawfully deprived of his liberty he may resist the aggressions of the offender, whether of a private citizen or a public officer, to the extent of taking the life of the assailant….”
• Washington State v. Rousseau, 40 Wn.2d at 94: “It is the law that a person illegally arrested by an officer may resist that arrest, even to the extent of the taking of life, if his own life or any great bodily harm is threatened.”
• DO NOT CITE ANY OF THE ABOVE CASES, THEY HAVE ALL BEEN MODIFIED BY POLITICIANS.

Try this one:

US Supreme Court’s John Elk v. US, 177 US 529:
“… where the officer is killed in the course of the disorder which naturally accompanies an attempted arrest that is resisted, the law looks with very different eyes upon the transaction, when the officer had the right to make the arrest, from what it does if the officer had no right. … the facts might show that no offense had been committed.”

IF YOU DON’T STAND UP FOR YOUR RIGHTS, YOU WILL LOSE THEM.

VERY SOON we will lose all our rights. Learn how to defend yourself in court.

Judges use a maxim of law “Those who refuse to fight must lose” (Although not Roman, this Shetar law worked itself into our laws).

I recommend an 1884 book by Count Leo Tolstoy, What I Believe. His Christian country was being overthrown by Communist sympathizers. He analyzes all the fuss over might and right.

Protests
Right of peaceably to assemble and petition for redress of grievances.

September 17th is Constitution Day.

Preview(opens in a new tab)

It was 233 years ago today that the Constitution was signed at Philadelphia.

We have fallen far since then. Now 34% of Americans cannot name even one branch of government. And they vote. Do not be discouraged by ignorant voters.

And DO NOT BE FOOLED by wacko politicians who want to play god.

The U.S. government’s authority is delegated only by the U.S. Constitution.

“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.”

Tenth Amendment

The U.S. government has no authority beyond what was delegated to it. No other source can delegate any authority to government. Voters and legislators cannot change the pre-existing authority into something of their own choosing. Legislators swore an oath of office to faithful uphold the Supreme Law. They cannot use parliamentary procedure to agree to commit mutiny.

Can the blessings of Liberty be restored?

It is NOT a natural order of society to live under a centralized government.
It IS the natural order of society to live under the laws of nature and of Nature’s God. Governments are instituted among men to secure these unalienable Creator-endowed natural rights.

  • We did not have a central government for the first ten books of the Bible. We had family (patriarchal) government that ruled by love, not a central government that ruled by force, fear and violence. Electing a King was evil in the eyes of the Lord (First Samuel 12:17).
  • Christ, at the last supper, told his apostles that they were not to rule like the princes who take orders to a top-down organization as benefactors. Not so among you. (Luke 22).

What government was like in a free country.

  • When the first States wrote their Constitutions, Liberty was freedom from all known methods of compulsion. And government was instituted among men to secure these rights. To secure the blessings of liberty. [If this does not describe YOUR government, find out why].
  • In 1799 Vice President Jefferson told the people of Kentucky that they were subject to only three federal laws (the three crimes mentioned in the Constitution) and no other federal crimes whatsoever.
  • 101 years ago, in 1919, we were debating a prohibition amendment. Everyone in America knew that we needed a Constitutional Amendment to ban a substance, right here in a country where Cocoa-Cola had cocaine and you could order Opium from the Sears Catalog.
  • If you need help to imagine what life was like in a free country, read my essay How to Recognize Freedom when You See It.

If the Constitution cannot be changed by liberal wackos, then we can still use the law-of-the-land to secure the blessings of liberty. 

Before we investigate the possibilities, let’s find out why we are now enslaved.

  • Our first mistake was to create a government to manage our responsibilites for us.  The laws of nature and of nature’s God require us to manage our own affairs and protect our neighbors. But we didn’t want these responsibilities, so we created government to manage our affairs and protect our neighbors. Unfortunately, rights only come with responsibilities.
  • Our second mistake was to allow constitutors to constitute governments, thereby becoming surety for their debts. But this did not apply to most people, it applied to State governments. At least until we became part of the federal government. “a citizen of the United States is a citizen of the federal government” – Kitchens v. Steel, 112 F.Supp 383.
  • Our third mistake was to avail ourselves of federal benefits, thereby jumping into their venue and jurisdiction.

Bullies will bully.

Do not be fooled by Liberals who want to play god. They want you to believe that the Constitution can be changed to anything we vote for.

And do not be fooled by the 21st Amendment cancelling the 18th Amendment. The Amendments that say Congress shall enforce the Amendment (13, 14, 15, 18, 19, 23, 24, 26) are enforced by the U.S. Congress even if they are contrary to State Constitutions. They are NOT self-enforced as part of the Supreme Law of the Land which judges in every State are bound thereby (Article 6, second paragraph). [If this does not describe your government, find out why.]

Societies created State governments by writing their Constitutions. They delegate specific duties to their future civil servants for their society’s purposes. — And nobody else. Only those participating in their political society were subject to their laws and protected by their laws. Natives, foreigners, and tourists remain subject to the Laws of Nature. They are outside the venue of government. And criminals, paupers, vagabonds and fugitives lose their political rights, if they had any.

State governments are artificial entities created on paper (often called a compact, charter or constitution) by representatives of society. Then people who want to be inferior to the artificial entity will swear oaths-of-office to perform the delegated (by their constitution) duties of the artificial entity.

U.S. Government authority is ONLY delegated by the Constitution. (the tenth Amendment says so, as does the U.S. Supreme Court, quoted later) It cannot change. Nobody who swears an oath to uphold something can commit mutiny by suggesting that it be changed. Article 5 only allows amendments TO, not OF, the constitution.

  • There is no other authority. Laws that are passed must conform to their oaths-of-office.
  • WE CANNOT VOTE TO CHANGE THE CONSTITUTION.
  • It is a crime to fraudulently induce a legislator to falsify a bill to change something he has no authority to change.

People in the federal territories wrote their constitutions to free themselves from federal jurisdiction. [see quote from Vice President Thomas Jefferson, later]. The Federal Government does not control the people. People in the states have no dealings with the federal government. They are protected by their States from all known methods of compulsion.

YOU are not subject to any federal laws until you volunteer. Don’t volunteer.

The U.S. Government’s sovereignty is from “We The People” who wrote the Constitution. It extends to the furthest limit of the authority delegated by the U.S. Constitution, to the actors who swear oaths-of-office to be the subordinates. And no further. “We The People” delegated to them the 18 things they were allowed to do. These are enumerated in Article 1, section 8.

Sovereignty is not from government.

  • US Supreme Court in Yick Wo v. Hopkins, 118 US 356, page 370: “While sovereign powers are delegated to … the government, sovereignty itself remains with the people..”
  • US Supreme Court in Julliard v. Greenman: 110 US 421: “there is no such thing as a power of inherent sovereignty in the government of the United States. It is a government of delegated powers, supreme within its prescribed sphere, but powerless outside of it. In this country, sovereignty resides in the people, and congress can exercise no power which they have not, by their constitution, intrusted to it; all else is withheld.”
  • Under our Constitution, in 1798, Vice President Thomas Jefferson reassured the people of Kentucky that they were free from all federal laws, except for the three crimes mentioned in the Constitution, “and no other crimes whatever”. He went on to say “(and all other their acts which assume to create, define, or punish crimes other than those enumerated in the Constitution) are altogether void and of no force, and that the power to create, define, and punish such other crimes is reserved, and of right appertains solely and exclusively to the respective States, each within its own Territory.”
  • We are all created equal. Equals have no duty to obey other equals. Equals would never salute another equal. Equals would never swear oaths to other equals. We are all created equal. We remain equal until we swear oaths (under penalty of perjury) to a superior.
  • We are born free. With Creator-endowed unalienable rights. Governments are instituted among men to secure those unalienable rights. We are born with the three rights of all mankind. These rights could never be “required by the laws of society to be sacrificed to public convenience … ” The preservation of these rights, inviolate, secured the preservation of civilized society (according to the introduction to the 1769 book Blackstone’s Commentaries on the Law, Book 4 — this link is to an 1803 revision that includes American law.) READ IT.
  • If you were to actually read what our rights were when the States wrote their constitutions you would notice The purpose of government was to protect your God-given (Creator-endowed) free will from all known methods of compulsion.
  • Abraham Lincoln, in his First Inaugural Address, told us that whenever citizens “grow weary of the existing government, they can exercise their constitutional right of amending it, or their revolutionary right to dismember or overthrow it.” If you don’t understand why a president would tell citizens they need a revolution to overthrow government, then you do not understand sovereignty. You have been blinded by lies.
  • Andrew Jackson survived three duels BEFORE we elected him as President. His campaign slogan was “the common man”. It is a constitutional right for a common man to settle his disputes without government. Government cannot interfere. Yes, the common voter, living in liberty, respects a man who risks death defending his honor. In a free nation, Andrew Jackson earned enough respect to be elected as a defender of everyone’s honor.

If you need further proof from the Supreme Court that the U.S. Constitution cannot change, read my essay.

We the people are the jura summi imperii to which our civil servants owe allegiance. Those who created a government are responsible for controlling what they create. This authority was passed to you, but you didn’t want it. You actively rejected the authority. Your actions speak louder than your words.
