How sovereign are states?

States were once sovereign.

1.They created a federal government and they must be held responsible for controlling what they created. The 17th Amendment now prohibits them from controlling what they created.

2. A court that flies the gold fringed US flag is not a judicial court. It is a federal martial law legislative tribunal. Start with my essay Gold Fringed Flag.

3. State judicial courts must protect their people from the gold fringed flag courts. The citizen who cannot complain is the individual who owes allegiance to two governments. According to The Supreme Court in U.S. v Cruikshank, 92 U.S. 542 at page 551,

4. People in states are subject to only three federal laws. The three crimes mentioned in the US Constitution. “and no other crimes whatever” according to vice-President Jefferson in the Kentucky Resolutions.

5. States can no longer control the creature they created. Example: 1968 Utah Supreme Court decision in Dyett v. Turner, 439 P.2d 266  has a critical examination of the problems of the 14th Amendment. The Utah Supreme Court justices said “We feel like galley slaves chained to our oars by a power from which we cannot free ourselves, but like slaves of old we think we must cry out when we can see the boat heading into the maelstrom directly ahead of us”.

Local judges are not controlled by their State. They are federally controlled. Judges in every State are bound thereby (U.S. Constitution Article 6, second paragraph).

6. IRS definition of citizen in Title 26 Code of Federal Regulations section 1.1-1(c) is that of a 14th Amendment federal citizen, not a state citizen. State citizens are protected from the federal government by the state judicial court, not the federal gold fringed flag courts. See my essay Why we don’t have rights anymore.

Who is a citizen? The IRS uses the same definition of the 14th Amendment.

7. By getting a SSN you disavow any allegiance to a State government. Once a 14th Amendment citizen, always a 14th Amendment citizen — your State citizenship was “finally disavowed” are the words in the Expatriation Act — in other words once you volunteer you cannot expatriate from the federal prison you volunteered into. This explains why US citizens are taxed everywhere in the world they move to. More info is in my essay Why don’t we have rights anymore? In my essay I explain why the expatriation Act was passed the day before they ratified the 14th Amendment. Once you jump the fence into the federal government, you cannot jump back.* This is why the U.S. is one of the two countries on the globe that taxes their citizens wherever they are located.

Do not misread the Expatriation Act. (Link — chapter 249 starts near the bottom of page 223) The Act says: “This claim of foreign allegiance should be promptly and finally disavowed:…”
Once you expatriate from the [foreign] State of the Union by seeking federal benefits, your allegiance to the foreign State of the Union is “promptly and finally disavowed”, They can no longer protect you from the federal government.

* James Madison correctly explained in his 1800 Report on the Virginia Resolutions: the term “states” means the people composing those political societies, in their highest sovereign capacity; because

  • in that sense the Constitution was submitted to the “states;”
  • in that sense the “states” ratified it; and
  • in that sense of the term “states,” they are consequently parties to the compact from which the powers of the federal government result.

So nothing changed with the Constitution, regarding any state’s national sovereignty; i.e. they were still each “a people composing those political societies in their highest sovereign capacity,” i.e. a sovereign nation-state, and were simply parties to an international union on that basis.
