Sovereign Citizens are for consensual government

I met Catherine a couple of years ago and am proud to call her friend. I am also an Oathkeeper, (member #268) and in 2008, I have served my congressman Petitions for Redress of Grievances with Bob Schultz and his We The People Foundation. This video summarizes everything I have been studying the last three years and was put together by CNN of all places!  Love it.

TREASON – A NOTICE TO PUBLIC SERVANTS-

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness. That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed. That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. — Thomas Jefferson, American Declaration of Independence

Tom Paine (Common Sense):

[Government is made] necessary by the inability of moral virtue to govern the world … [and] the design and end of government [is] freedom and security. … [The] articles or charter of government should be formed first, and men delegated to execute them afterwards … As to religion, I hold it to be the indispensable duty of government to protect all conscientious professors thereof, and I know of no other business which government hath to do therewith.

John Stuart Mill (Essay on Liberty):

[T]he sole end for which mankind are warranted, individually or collectively in interfering with the liberty of action of any of their number, is self-protection. … [T]he only purpose for which power can be rightfully exercised over any member of a civilized community, against his will, is to prevent harm to others.

Aldous Huxley: (Brave New World Revisited):

Big Government and Big Business … will try to impose social and cultural uniformity upon adults and their children. To achieve this they will (unless prevented) make use of all the mind-manipulating techniques at their disposal and will not hesitate to reinforce these methods of non-rational persuasion by economic coercion and threats of physical violence. If this kind of tyranny is to be avoided, we must begin without delay to educate ourselves and our children for freedom and self-government. Such an education for freedom should be … first of all in facts and in values — the facts of individual diversity and genetic uniqueness and the values of freedom, tolerance and mutual charity, which are the ethical corollaries of these facts.

TREASON –  A NOTICE TO PUBLIC SERVANTS-

On the night of December 23, 1913 the United States Congress passed the Federal Reserve Act and thereby committed the greatest act of TREASON in history. It surrendered this nation’s sovereignty and sold the American people into slavery to a cabal of arch-charlatan international bankers who proceeded to plunder, bankrupt, and conquer this nation with a money swindle.

The “money” the banks issue is merely bookkeeping entries. It cost them nothing and is not backed by their wealth, efforts, property, or risk. It is not redeemable except in more debt paper. The Federal Reserve Act forced us to pay compound interest on thin air. We now use worthless “notes” backed by our own credit that we cannot own and are made subject to compelled performance for the “privilege”.

From 1913 until 1933, the United States paid the “interest” with more and more gold. The structured inevitability soon transpired: the Treasury was empty, the debt was greater than ever, and the United States declared bankruptcy. In exchange for using notes belonging to bankers who create them out of nothing on our own credit, we are forced to repay in substance (labor, property, land, businesses, resources, life in ever-increasing amounts. This may have been the greatest heist and fraud of all time.

When a government goes bankrupt, it loses its sovereignty. In 1933 the United States declared bankruptcy, as expressed in Roosevelt’s Executive Orders 6073, 6102, 6111, and 6260, House Joint Resolution 192 of June 5, 1933, confirmed in Perry v. United States, (1935) 294 U.S. 330-381, 79 L.Ed 912, as well as 31 USC 5112, 5119, and 12 USC 95A. The bankrupt United States went into receivership, reorganized in favor of 115 creditors and new owners. In 1913, Congress turned over America… lock, stock and barrel to a handful of criminals whose avowed intent from the beginning was to plunder, bankrupt, conquer, and enslave the people of the United States of America and eliminate this nation from the face of the earth. The goal was, and is, to absorb America into a one-world private commercial government, a “New World Order.”

On March 9, 1933 President Roosevelt called for the passing of The WAR POWERS ACT TITLE 12 USC. Section 95 (a) and  95 (b). This act declared all United States Citizens to be the enemy of the United States Government, and placed us under permanent Emergency Rule, bypassing Constitutional constraints on government.

With the Erie R.R. v Tompkins case of 1938, the Supreme Court confirmed their success. We are now in an international private commercial jurisdiction in colorable admiralty-maritime under the Law Merchant. We have been conned and betrayed out of our sovereignty, rights, property, freedom, common law, Article III Courts, and

The Bill of Rights has been statutized into “civil rights” in commerce. You have destroyed the Republic. America has been stolen. We have been made slaves, i.e. permanent debtors, bankrupt, in legal incapacity, rendered commercial “persons,” “residents,” and corporate franchisees known as “citizens of the United States”

Since 1933 what is called the “United States Government” is a privately owned corporation of the Federal Reserve/International Monetary Fund. It is merely an instrument whereby the bankers administer their ongoing subjugation and plunder of what was once considered “the last great hope of human freedom.” All “public servants,” officials, Congressmen, politicians, judges, attorneys, law enforcement officers, States and their various agencies, etc., are the express agents of these foreign principals – see Foreign Agents Registration Act of 1938; 22 USC 286 et seq, 263A, 185G, 267J, 611(C) (ii) & (iii); Treasury Delegation Order #91 – who have stolen the country by clever, intentional, and unrelenting fraud, trickery, treachery, non-disclosure, miss-representation, intrigue, coercion, conspiracy, murder. If there is a greater tragedy in human history it is hard to know what it is.

An insidious aspect of this is that “officials” like you may think you are “public servants,” are upholding the “law,” or other hoaxes. In truth you are conscientiously and assiduously serving the archenemies of yourselves, your own rights, your fellow citizens, continued human rights, life, and freedom in general. YOU are seditiously administering the plunder, bankruptcy, conquest, destruction, dismantling, and elimination of your country. YOU are systematically defrauding, extorting, impoverishing, and injuring human life on the basis of crimes and lies of such magnitude, depth, and proportions as to be beyond human comprehension.

Now you believe you can sell this nation to foreign powers with the stroke of a pen by Executive Order 12803, April 30, 1992.

By so doing, you are committing TREASON and PERFIDY so immense as “to make the angels weep.” If you and your fellow “officials” do not understand the real situation, you are ignorant, naive, deceived, and conned. You are sheer dupes. If you do know and are parties to it, you are guilty of evil and heinous BETRAYAL. You are in such case TRAITORS and CRIMINALS. All of you “in power” are therefore, either fools or knaves, either of which eminently invalidates your “authority” and renders null and void absolutely all-moral obligation to pay allegiance or to obey the TREASONOUS SYSTEM you enforce with such mechanical viciousness.

If, you, “public servants” had any shred left of humanity, awe, heart, clarity, sanity, access to your true being and conscience, you would instantly resign and do everything possible to inform the American people of their plight and help us retrieve our rights and our country. Only by such means can you even begin to atone for your endless crimes against humanity, the lives you so arrogantly and mindlessly butcher with the “meat-grinder of the law.”

What do you think the American people will do as they discover that they have no more country, that they are slaves to mortal enemies, that they have been tricked and betrayed by their “leaders” who sold them out? What do you think they will do when they realize that all their alleged “public servants” are willing or stupidly compliant parties to the plunder, bankruptcy, subjugation, and ruin of their lives and country?

There is no acceptable excuse for what you have done. You cannot engage in bringing harm to life and, like the Nazi’s defense at Nuremberg, presume that because you do so under the “authority” of an imaginary, abstract, unreal legal fiction called “government” you are freed of the consequences of your acts. Moral and natural law are not obviated by ignorance, hubris and self-righteous militancy. Your entire system – from the ground up – is deceit and fraud. It is illicit in essence and ab initio. As Broom’s Maxims 297, 729 put it: “A right of action cannot arise out of fraud.” Honor is earned by honesty and integrity, not under false and fraudulent pretenses. The color of the cloth one wears cannot cover up the usurpations, lies, and treachery. “When black is fraudulently declared to be white, not all will live in darkness.”

More and more  Americans are awakening to the truth. What do you think the American people will do as they discover that they have no more country, that they are slaves to mortal enemies, that they have been tricked and betrayed by their “leaders” who sold them out? What do you think they will do when they realize that all their alleged “public servants” are willing or stupidly compliant parties to the plunder, bankruptcy, subjugation, ruin  and destruction of their lives and country? Thomas Jefferson wrote: “An honest man can feel no pleasure in the exercise of power over his fellow citizens.” Lincoln said: “Just as I would not be a slave, neither would I be a master.”

I will not participate in your corrupt, arrogant, and cruel fraud, either as perpetrator or victim. I will no longer sit here and writhe. The TYRANNY over this nation MUST END! End Emergency Rule. Repeal all laws passed under Emergency Rule. Give us back our substance and our law. Give us back our Republican form of government.

If you continue with this course, you will have natural and moral law and higher powers to answer to, not to mention all those you have wronged under color of law. You will have your own laws turned against you, as you have turned the law against us. To transform the shield of protection into a sword of exploitation, subjugation, and plunder is perfidy. I am an American. My destiny is to live as a freeman on the land my forefathers conquered and that I will fight to keep.

You have now been placed on notice. All further actions on your part will be willful!

Resolutely, from  Americans who demand their country back

Update on my Declaration of Independence

February 7, 2010

Over the course of my life I have been exposed to many points of view.  Only recently have I matured enough to begin to understand what it means to be American.

An American is someone gifted to be living in a country where everyone must be treated equally under the rule of law.  A land where the sovereign people grant government only limited authority over themselves.

On June 20, 2008, along with thousands of other Americans, I submitted a Petition for Redress of Grievances to Congressman Sam Graves at his Liberty office.  This legal document was in regards to seven activities the government is currently engaged in that are so far outside the confines of the Constitution, even I, a mid western chiropractor could figure it out. (i.e. Department of Homeland Security, FISA wire tapping, The Patriot Act part I and II, etc.)

This effort and MANY other phone calls, letters, marches, rallies, town halls, and protests have all been deflected or ignored by the established political elite.

As a man of honor to my country, on December 31, 2008 on my private blog https://harmonyhealth.wordpress.com/ , facebook, in writing and with many local witnesses I declared my Independence from the corrupt de facto government now in power across this land. (see attached)  I set aside the Security Trust named after me without prejudice, and am making every effort to withdraw from the illegal system in power entirely.

Therefore, to maintain my honor and live with dignity I must inform you that with peace in my heart, unless some living man or woman has evidence, of a specific injury to which I am accused and indicted, that I need to address, I do not automatically consent to your authority. I am a sovereign American traveling in peace in my private car as is the current custom.  If you do not need a doctor, I will be on my way.

Like you I have taken an oath to protect the Constitution.  Let us work together to insure our children inherit the individual freedoms our forefathers held so dear.

If you have further questions, please fill in your name, mailing address and phone number then sign below confirming you have read this and all attached documentation.  I am available for private lessons on how to be free for $300.00 per hour, the first hour paid in advance.  (Ask about group discounts)

The America I love

America is not a place, it is an idea. The idea that everyone is born FREE. That means without predetermined obligations or debts. No matter where you took your first breath, if you are human, while your in America, you are innocent until proven guilty.  DrD

You were born FREE. Do not accept your ancestors debts. If you have bound yourself through contract, then there you are. But at the start, you were innocent and FREE. No one can bind a free man without consideration and consent. DrD

Autonomy – (Immunity from arbitrary exercise of authority: political independence) Is necessary to act with honor. DrD

545 vs 300,000,000

Please be patient and read to the end:

545 vs 300,000,000
EVERY  CITIZEN NEEDS TO READ THIS AND THINK ABOUT WHAT THIS JOURNALIST HAS  SCRIPTED IN THIS MESSAGE..  READ IT  AND THEN REALLY THINK ABOUT  OUR CURRENT POLITICAL DEBACLE.

Charley  Reese has been a journalist for 49 years.

545  PEOPLE
By Charlie Reese

Politicians are the only people in the world  who create problems and then campaign against them.

Have you ever  wondered, if both the Democrats and the Republicans are against deficits, WHY do we have deficits?

Have you ever wondered, if  all the politicians are against inflation and high taxes, WHY do we have  inflation and high taxes?

You and I don’t propose a federal budget.  The president does.

You and I don’t have the  Constitutional authority to vote on appropriations. The House of  Representatives does.

You and I don’t write the tax code, Congress  does.

You and I don’t set fiscal policy, Congress does.

You  and I don’t control monetary policy, the Federal Reserve  Bank does.

One hundred senators, 435 congressmen, one  president, and nine Supreme Court justices equates to 545 human  beings out of the 300 million are directly, legally, morally,  and individually responsible for the domestic problems that plague  this country.

I excluded the members of the Federal Reserve  Board because that problem was created by the  Congress.  In 1913, Congress delegated its Constitutional duty  to provide a sound currency to a federally chartered, but private, central  bank.

I excluded all the special interests and lobbyists for a  sound reason.. They have no legal authority.  They have no  ability to coerce a senator, a congressman, or a president to do one  cotton-picking thing.  I don’t care if they offer a politician $1 million dollars in cash.  The  politician has the power to accept or reject it.. No matter what  the lobbyist promises, it is the legislator’s responsibility  to determine  how he votes.

Those 545 human beings spend much of their energy  convincing you that what they did is not their fault.   They cooperate in this common con regardless of party.
What  separates a politician from a normal human being is an  excessive amount of gall.  No normal  human being would have the gall of a  Speaker, who stood up and criticized the President for creating  deficits..  The president can only propose a budget.   He cannot force the Congress to accept  it..

The Constitution, which is the supreme law of the  land, gives sole responsibility to the House of  Representatives for originating and approving appropriations and taxes.  Who is the speaker of the House?   Nancy Pelosi.  She is  the leader of the majority party..  She and  fellow House members, not the president, can approve any budget they want.  If the president vetoes it, they can pass it over his veto if  they agree  to.

It seems inconceivable to me that a nation of 300 million can  not replace 545 people who stand convicted — by present facts — of  incompetence and
irresponsibility. I can’t think of a  single domestic problem  that is not traceable directly to those 545 people.  When you fully  grasp the plain truth that 545 people exercise t he power of the federal  government, then it must follow that what exists is what they want to  exist.

If the tax code is unfair, it’s because they want it  unfair.

If the budget is in the red, it’s because they want it in  the red …..

If the Army &Marines are in   IRAQ ,  it’s because they want them in IRAQ

If they do not  receive social security but are on an elite retirement plan not available  to the people, it’s because they want it that way.

There are no  insoluble government problems.

Do not let these 545 people shift  the blame to bureaucrats, whom they hire and

whose jobs they can  abolish; to lobbyists, whose gifts and advice they can reject;

to  regulators, to whom they give the power to regulate and from whom they can

take this power.  Above all, do not let them con you into  the belief that there

exists disembodied mystical forces like “the  economy,” “inflation,” or “politics”

that prevent them from doing  what they take an oath to do.

Those 545 people, and they  alone, are responsible.


They, and they alone, have the  power.

They, and they alone, should be held accountable by the  people who are their bosses.

Provided the voters have the  gumption to manage their own employees.

We should vote all of  them out of office and clean up their mess!

Charlie Reese is a former columnist of the Orlando Sentinel  Newspaper.

What you do with this article now that you have  read it………. Is up to you.


This might be funny if it weren’t so darned true.
Be sure to read all the way to the end:

Tax his land,
Tax his bed,
Tax the table
At which he’s fed.

Tax his tractor,
Tax his mule,
Teach him taxes
Are the rule.

Tax his work,
Tax his pay,
He works for peanuts
Anyway!
Tax his cow,
Tax his goat,
Tax his pants,
Tax his coat.
Tax his ties,
Tax his shirt,
Tax his work,
Tax his dirt.

Tax his tobacco,
Tax his drink,
Tax him if he
Tries to think.

Tax his cigars,
Tax his beers,
If he cries
Tax his tears.

Tax his car,
Tax his gas,
Find other ways
To tax his ass.

Tax all he has
Then let him know
That you won’t be done
Till he has no dough.

When he screams and hollers;
Then tax him some more,
Tax him till
He’s good and sore.
Then tax his coffin,
Tax his grave,
Tax the sod in
Which he’s laid.

Put these words
Upon his tomb,
Taxes drove me
to my doom…’

When he’s gone,
Do not relax,
Its time to apply
Inheritance tax.

STILL THINK THIS IS FUNNY? Not one of these taxes existed 100 years ago, and our nation was the most prosperous in the world.  We had absolutely no national debt, had the largest middle class in the world, and Mom stayed home to raise the kids.
What in the hell happened? Can you spell ‘politicians?’
And I still have to ‘press 1’ for English!?

I hope this goes around THE USA at least 100 times!!!  YOU can help it get there!!!
GO AHEAD – – – BE AN AMERICAN!!!

Throw ALL incumbants out in 2010

by:

Michael-Edward:

800-625-4250

All I ask is that you consider the suggestion here.

The entire Congress of the United States is corrupt. And I mean both Houses and I mean both major parties..

I realize that a few Members of each House who are trustworthy, but, as a group they are absolutely the most corrupt bunch to ever disgrace our Nation.

In November of 2010 the entire House of Representatives will stand for re-election; all 435 of them. One third of the Senate, a total of 33 of them, will also stand for re-election. Vote every incumbent out.

And I mean every one of them. No matter their Party affiliation. Let’s start all over in the House of Representatives with 435 people who have absolutely no experience in running that body, with no political favors owed to anyone but their own constituents. Let’s make them understand that they work for us. They are answerable to us and they simply have to run that body with some common sense.

Two years later, in 2012, vote the next third of the incumbents in the Senate out.

We can do the same thing in 2014 and, by that time we will have put all new people in that body as well.

We, the People, have got to take this Country back and we HAVE to do it peacefully.  That’s what the Framers of our Constitution envisioned.

I am also suggesting term limits on the new bunch: 8 years for Representatives and 12 years for Senators – no exceptions. The longer they stay in office, the more power they get, and they love it and will do anything to get re-elected.

We have term-limited the President, now let’s term-limit the Legislators.

Please, if you love this Country, send this (as I have done) to absolutely everyone whose email address appears in your address book.

This thing can permeate this Country in no time. Let’s make it happen.

Don’t just delete this -please pass it on and give our Country a fighting chance.

VOTE THE POWER ABUSERS OUT……..LET’S TAKE AMERICA BACK !!!!!!!!!

Martial Law can be declared under new “Food Safety” bill

HR 2749: “Food Safety” Bill Has Martial Law Provisions by Food Freedom

Sun, Jul 5th, 2009 12:00:00 am

Source: Food Freedom HR 2749 is a strange bill in many ways.

While the other “food safety” bills have been around since winter, allowing for much public discussion on the internet, HR 2749 has only suddenly appeared. It is a mutant conglomeration of the worst of the other bills, with the addition of one very original part – martial law. When it was a draft, it was Waxman’s bill. But once given a number, it became Dingel’s who already had a “food safety” bill, HR 759. So Waxman got none and Dingel got two. (Was this because Waxman, being Jewish, was a hideous choice to introduce a bill with Codex in it – designed by the Nazi pharmaceutical companies that funded Hitler, provided the gas for the gas chambers, experimented on prisoners with vaccines – and is expected to kill millions?) *

HR 2749 would give FDA the power to order a quarantine of a geographic area, including “prohibiting or restricting the movement of food or of any vehicle being used or that has been used to transport or hold such food within the geographic area.” [This – “that has been used to transport or hold such food” – would mean all cars that have ever brought groceries home or any pickup someone has eaten take-out in, so this means ALL TRANSPORTATION can be shut down under this. This is using food as a cover for martial law.] Under this provision, farmers markets and local food sources could be shut down, even if they are not the source of the contamination. The agency can halt all movement of all food in a geographic area. [This is also a means of total control over the population under the cover of food, and at any time.]

The bill is unusual, too, because slow as it was to appear. The little bugger of bill has made up for it since. It got a number on June 10, went to committee on June 17, passed instantly, and is headed for a vote on the floor of the House. The first Patriot Act was passed using fear of terrorism. This Patriot Act is more coy, hiding under a cloak of “food safety” and but also using fear – fear of food contamination.

Evidently, Americans are supposed to be so frightened by the slightest possibility of a terrorist or of E-coli, they would trade away all their precious, hard fought freedoms for the promise of safety. Or at least, that is what the trade-off has become. “Terrorism” and “contamination” are great bugaboos used to open doors to an end to the US Constitution. That is exactly what we are left with after those who wrote HR 2749 are done. Who did write these bills? It seems Monsanto had not only a hand, but a “defining” influence.http://farmwars.info/?p=594

This redefining of reality is what seems to be underlying all the loss of freedom. Normal and free are disappearing into the maw of corporate definitions of reality. So, we begin with contaminated food from filthy corporate processors and concentrated animal feeding operations (CAFOs). And what do we end up with after that reality is ground up by corporate legal hands? Changes in the definition of risk so that natural things are treated as dangerous and toxic things are untouched, such that:

• Healthy, normal farms are taken over by government as though they were run by criminals and contaminated corporate slaughterhouses are untouched;

• The necessary freedom of individuals to live and grow food and be left alone are somehow suddenly destroyed, though they were never the source of any food contamination issue; and such that •

The profit and control and power of corporations which were absolutely the source of the increasingly terrible food, is somehow suddenly vastly increased. Thanks to corporate control over reality, our wanting to clean up corporate processors and feedlots and CAFOS and end up with farmers’ markets and local farms and organic food has become the industrialization and potential destruction of every healthy part of the food system and the triumph of the most contaminated and toxic part. And in the non-bargain, we lost all freedoms and they took all control. And “all” is not a hyperbole here, for one need only look at another provision of HR 2749 to feel how insane, how distant from all we ever wanted.

* HR 2749 would empower FDA to regulate how crops are raised and harvested. It puts the federal government right on the farm, dictating to our farmers. [What is missing in pointing out this astounding control, is that it opens the door to CODEX and WTO “good farming practices” will include the elimination of organic farming by eliminating manure, mandating GMO animal feed, imposing animal drugs, and ordering applications of petrochemical fertilizers and pesticides. Farmers, thus, will be locked not only into the industrialization of once normal and organic farms but into the forced purchase of industry’s products. They will be slaves on the land, doing the work they are ordered to do – against their own best wisdom – and paying out to industry against their will.

There will be no way to be frugal, to grow one’s own grain to feed the animals, to raise healthy animals without GMO grains or drugs, to work with nature at all. Grassfed cattle and poultry and hogs will be finished. So, it needs to be made clear where control will take us. And weren’t these the “rumors on the internet” that were dismissed but are clearly the case?]

When we wanted not to get E-coli in processed meat, did we intend to put our farmers into corporate servitude? Did we plan to have our own lives straight-jacketed by a million new controls over our own gardens, our own desire to grow food, our own plans to start small businesses, our own dreams to have a small piece of land and farm ourselves? Who has the audacity to take our needs and grotesquely bastardize them in these ways, while giving the destruction and totalitarian control the sham name of “food safety”?

We wanted good food. We never wanted to trap our farmers into an industrial prison on their own land, afraid moment to moment of not fulfilling some monstrous set of instructions that never end – rules the farmers loathe, rules that have not only nothing to do with real farming but which are antithetical to it. Why have we ended up with HR 2749, an intense corporate nightmare around the most central and necessary aspects of a free country and of free human beings – farming and food?

American farming needs to be relieved of the burdens it has been under, not finished off by its corporate competition. It needs freedom to flourish again. Obviously – and Congress people who would think to vote for such absurdities, take note – the imposition of surveillance, monitoring, warrantless entry, taking of all records, licensing, fees, Codex and NAIS, in addition to massive penalties and prison terms (all without judicial review over even appropriateness and validity), are not how one thanks American farmers for holding together the only working part of our food system.

See Literal Enslavement by Linn Cohen-Cole. HR 2749 is the most vicious and insane bill one could imagine. Who treats our farmers in this way? Who believes that such police measures can provide for the rebirth of farming and the return of healthy food? Who wrote this bill that trashes the freedom of all our lives? HR 2749 was not what we ordered and it should be sent back the bowels of hell it came from. HR 2749 is both insane and cruel. And the deceptiveness of hiding a Patriot Act in it and the brutal rush to slip it through Congress are ANTI-democratic. Go here to tell Congress, “No.” http://www.ftcldf.org/petitions/pnum993.php

The legacy of the American National Debt

MOUNTAIN OF DEBT: Legacy of debt from Founding Fathers not celebrated on Independence Day

* By Tom Raum, Associated Press Writer

* On Friday July 3, 2009, 11:20 am EDT

* Print WASHINGTON (AP) — The Founding Fathers left one legacy not celebrated on Independence Day but which affects us all. It’s the national debt. The country first got into debt to help pay for the Revolutionary War. Growing ever since, the debt stands today at a staggering $11.5 trillion — equivalent to over $37,000 for each and every American. And it’s expanding by over $1 trillion a year. The mountain of debt easily could become the next full-fledged economic crisis without firm action from Washington, economists of all stripes warn. “Unless we demonstrate a strong commitment to fiscal sustainability in the longer term, we will have neither financial stability nor healthy economic growth,” Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke recently told Congress.

Higher taxes, or reduced federal benefits and services — or a combination of both — may be the inevitable consequences. The debt is complicating efforts by President Barack Obama and Congress to cope with the worst recession in decades as stimulus and bailout spending combine with lower tax revenues to widen the gap. Interest payments on the debt alone cost $452 billion last year — the largest federal spending category after Medicare-Medicaid, Social Security and defense. It’s quickly crowding out all other government spending. And the Treasury is finding it harder to find new lenders.

The United States went into the red the first time in 1790 when it assumed $75 million in the war debts of the Continental Congress. Alexander Hamilton, the first treasury secretary, said, “A national debt, if not excessive, will be to us a national blessing.” Some blessing. Since then, the nation has only been free of debt once, in 1834-1835. The national debt has expanded during times of war and usually contracted in times of peace, while staying on a generally upward trajectory. Over the past several decades, it has climbed sharply — except for a respite from 1998 to 2000, when there were annual budget surpluses, reflecting in large part what turned out to be an overheated economy.

The debt soared with the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan and economic stimulus spending under President George W. Bush and now Obama. The odometer-style “debt clock” near Times Square — put in place in 1989 when the debt was a mere $2.7 trillion — ran out of numbers and had to be shut down when the debt surged past $10 trillion in 2008. The clock has since been refurbished so higher numbers fit. There are several debt clocks on Web sites maintained by public interest groups that let you watch hundreds, thousands, millions zip by in a matter of seconds.

The debt gap is “something that keeps me awake at night,” Obama says. He pledged to cut the budget “deficit” roughly in half by the end of his first term. But “deficit” just means the difference between government receipts and spending in a single budget year. This year’s deficit is now estimated at about $1.85 trillion. Deficits don’t reflect holdover indebtedness from previous years. Some spending items — such as emergency appropriations bills and receipts in the Social Security program — aren’t included, either, although they are part of the national debt. The national debt is a broader, and more telling, way to look at the government’s balance sheets than glancing at deficits. According to the Treasury Department, which updates the number “to the penny” every few days, the national debt was $11,518,472,742,288 on Wednesday.

The overall debt is now slightly over 80 percent of the annual output of the entire U.S. economy, as measured by the gross domestic product. By historical standards, it’s not proportionately as high as during World War II, when it briefly rose to 120 percent of GDP. But it’s still a huge liability. Also, the United States is not the only nation struggling under a huge national debt. Among major countries, Japan, Italy, India, France, Germany and Canada have comparable debts as percentages of their GDPs.

Where does the government borrow all this money from? The debt is largely financed by the sale of Treasury bonds and bills. Even today, amid global economic turmoil, those still are seen as one of the world’s safest investments. That’s one of the rare upsides of U.S. government borrowing. Treasury securities are suitable for individual investors and popular with other countries, especially China, Japan and the Persian Gulf oil exporters, the three top foreign holders of U.S. debt. But as the U.S. spends trillions to stabilize the recession-wracked economy, helping to force down the value of the dollar, the securities become less attractive as investments. Some major foreign lenders are already paring back on their purchases of U.S. bonds and other securities. And if major holders of U.S. debt were to flee, it would send shock waves through the global economy — and sharply force up U.S. interest rates.

As time goes by, demographics suggest things will get worse before they get better, even after the recession ends, as more baby boomers retire and begin collecting Social Security and Medicare benefits. While the president remains personally popular, polls show there is rising public concern over his handling of the economy and the government’s mushrooming debt — and what it might mean for future generations. If things can’t be turned around, including establishing a more efficient health care system, “We are on an utterly unsustainable fiscal course,” said the White House budget director, Peter Orszag.

Some budget-restraint activists claim even the debt understates the nation’s true liabilities. The Peter G. Peterson Foundation, established by a former commerce secretary and investment banker, argues that the $11.4 trillion debt figures does not take into account roughly $45 trillion in unlisted liabilities and unfunded retirement and health care commitments. That would put the nation’s full obligations at $56 trillion, or roughly $184,000 per American, according to this calculation.

      Structure of the Birth Certificate

      Did the State Pledge Your Body to a Bank?

      Right:  Some birth and marriage certificates are now "warehouse receipts,"
printed on banknote paper, which may mark you and yours as 'chattel' property
of the banks that our government borrows from every day.

    By:  David Deschesne

      Editor, Fort Fairfield Journal

      A certificate is a "paper establishing an ownership claim." - Barron's
Dictionary of Banking Terms.  Registration of births began in 1915, by the
Bureau of Census, with all states adopting the practice by 1933.

      Birth and marriage certificates are a form of securities called "warehouse
receipts."  The items included on a warehouse receipt, as descried at §7-202
of the Uniform Commercial Code, the law which governs commercial paper and
transactions, which parallel a birth or marriage certificate are:

      -the location of the warehouse where the goods are stored...(residence)

      -the date of issue of the receipt.....("Date issued")

      -the consecutive number of the receipt...(found on back or front of the
certificate, usually in red numbers)

      -a description of the goods or of the packages containing them...(name, sex,
date of birth, etc.)

      -the signature of the warehouseman, which may be made by his authorized
agent...(municipal clerk or state registrar's signature)

      Birth/marriage certificates now appear to at least qualify as "warehouse
receipts" under the Uniform Commercial Code.  Black's Law Dictionary, 7th ed.
defines:

      warehouse receipt. "...A warehouse receipt, which is considered a document of
title, may be a negotiable instrument and is often used for financing with
inventory as security."

      Since the U.S. went bankrupt in 1933, all new money has to be borrowed into
existence.  All states started issuing serial-numbered, certificated
"warehouse receipts" for births and marriages in order to pledge us as
collateral against those loans and municipal bonds taken out with the Federal
Reserve's banks.  The "Full faith and Credit" of the American people is said
to be that which back the nation's debt.  That simply means the American
people's ability to labor and pay back that debt.  In order to catalog its
laborers, the government needed an efficient, methodical system of tracking
its property to that end.  Humans today are looked upon merely as resources -
"human resources," that is.

      Governmental assignment of a dollar value to the heads of citizens began on
July 14, 1862 when President Lincoln offered 6 percent interest bearing-bonds
to states who freed their slaves on a "per head" basis.  This practice of
valuating humans (cattle?) continues today with our current system of
debt-based currency reliant upon a steady stream of fresh new chattels to back
it.

      Additional Birth Certificate Research

      Federal Children

       by Joyce Rosenwald

      In 1921, the federal Sheppard-Towner Maternity Act created the birth
"registration" or what we now know as the "birth certificate." It was known as
the "Maternity Act" and was sold to the American people as a law that would
reduce maternal and infant mortality, protect the health of mothers and
infants, and for "other purposes." One of those other purposes provided for
the establishment of a federal bureau designed to cooperate with state
agencies in the overseeing of its operations and expenditures. What it really
did was create a federal birth registry which exists today, creating "federal
children." This government, under the doctrine of "Parens Patriae," now
legislates for American children as if they are owned by the federal
government. Through the public school enrollment process and continuing
license requirements for most aspects of daily life, these children grow up to
be adults indoctrinated into the process of asking for "permission" from Daddy
government to do all those things necessary to carry out daily activities that
exist in what is called a "free country."

      Before 1921 the records of births and names of children were entered into
family bibles, as were the records of marriages and deaths. These records were
readily accepted by both the family and the law as "official" records. Since
1921 the American people have been registering the births and names of their
children with the government of the state in which they are born, even though
there is no federal law requiring it. The state tells you that registering
your child's birth through the birth certificate serves as proof that he/she
was born in the united States , thereby making him/her a United States
Citizen. For the past several years a social security number has been mandated
by the federal government to be issued at birth.

      In 1933, bankruptcy was declared by President Roosevelt. The governors of the
then 48 States pledged the "full faith and credit" of their states, including
the citizenry, as collateral for loans of credit from the Federal Reserve
system. To wit:"Full faith and credit" clause of Const. U.S. article 4. sec.
1, requires that foreign judgement be given such faith and credit as it had by
law or usage of state of it's origin. That foreign statutes are to have force
and effect to which they are entitled in home state. And that a judgement or
record shall have the same faith, credit, conclusive effect, and obligatory
force in other states as it has by law or usage in the state from whence
taken.
      Black's Law Dictionary, 4th Ed. cites omitted.

      The state claims an interest in every child within it's jurisdiction. The
state will, if it deems it necessary, nullify your parental rights and appoint
a guardian (trustee) over your children. The subject of every birth
certificate is a child. The child is a valuable asset, which if properly
trained, can contribute valuable assets provided by its labor for many years.
It is presumed by those who have researched this issue, that the child itself
is the asset of the trust established by the birth certificate, and the social
security number is the numbering or registration of the trust, allowing for
the assets of the trust to be tracked. If this information is true, your child
is now owned by the state. Each one of us, including our children, are
considered assets of the bankrupt united states. We are now designated by this
government as "HUMAN RESOURCES," with a new crop born every year."

      In 1923, a suit was brought against federal officials charged with the
administration of the maternity act, who were citizens of another state, to
enjoin them from enforcing it, wherein the plaintiff averred that the act was
unconstitutional, and that it's purpose was to induce the States to yield
sovereign rights reserved by them through the federal Constitution's 10th
amendment and not granted to the federal government, and that the burden of
the appropriations falls unequally upon the several States, held, that, as the
statute does not require the plaintiff to do or yield anything, and as no
burden is imposed by it other than that of taxation, which falls, not on the
State but on her inhabitants, who are within the federal as well as the state
taxing power, the complaint resolves down to the naked contention that
Congress has usurped reserved powers of the States by the mere enactment of
the statute, though nothing has been, or is to be, done under it without their
consent (Commonwealth of Massachusetts vs. Mellon, Secretary of the Treasury,
et al.; Frothingham v. Mellon, Secretary of the Treasury et.al..) Mr.
Alexander Lincoln, Assistant Attorney General, argued for the Commonwealth of
Massachusetts . To wit:

      I. The act is unconstitutional. It purports to vest in agencies of the Federal
Government powers which are almost wholly undefined, in matters relating to
maternity and infancy, and to authorize appropriations of federal funds for
the purposes of the act.

      Many examples may be given and were stated in the debates on the bill in
Congress of regulations which may be imposed under the act. THE FORCED
REGISTRATION OF PREGNANCY, GOVERNMENTAL PRENATAL EXAMINATION OF EXPECTANT
MOTHERS, RESTRICTIONS ON THE RIGHT OF A WOMAN TO SECURE THE SERVICES OF A
MIDWIFE OR PHYSICIAN OF HER OWN SELECTION, are measures to which the people of
those States which accept its provisions may be subjected. There is nothing
which prohibits the payment of subsidies out of federal appropriations.
INSURANCE OF MOTHERS MAY BE MADE COMPULSORY. THE TEACHING OF BIRTH CONTROL AND
PHYSICAL INSPECTION OF PERSONS ABOUT TO MARRY MAY BE REQUIRED.

      By section 4 of the act, the Children's Bureau is given all necessary powers
to cooperate with the state agencies in the administration of the act. Hence
it is given the power to assist in the enforcement of the plans submitted to
it, and for that purpose by its agents to go into the several States and to do
those acts for which the plans submitted may provide. As to what those plans
shall provide, the final arbiters are the Bureau and the Board. THE FACT THAT
IT WAS CONSIDERED NECESSARY IN EXPLICIT TERMS TO PRESERVE FROM INVASION BY
FEDERAL OFFICIALS THE RIGHT OF THE PARENT TO THE CUSTODY AND CARE OF HIS CHILD
AND THE SANCTITY OF HIS HOME SHOWS HOW FAR REACHING ARE THE POWERS WHICH WERE
INTENDED TO BE GRANTED BY THE ACT.

      (1) The act is invalid because it assumes powers not granted to Congress and
usurps the local police power. McCulloch v. Maryland , 4 Wheat. 316, 405;
United States v. Cruikshank, 92 U.S. 542, 549-551.

      In more recent cases, however, the Court has shown that there are limits to
the power of Congress to pass legislation purporting to be based on one of the
powers expressly granted to Congress which in fact usurps the reserved powers
of the States, and that laws showing on their face detailed regulation of a
matter wholly within the police power of the States will be held to be
unconstitutional although they purport to be passed in the exercise of some
constitutional power. Hammer v. Dagenhart, 247 U.S.251; Child Labor Tax Case,
259 U.S. 20; Hill v. Wallace, 259 U.S. 44.

      The act is not made valid by the circumstance that federal powers are to be
exercised only with respect to those States which accept the act, for Congress
cannot assume, and state legislatures cannot yield, the powers reserved to the
States by the Constitution. Message of President Monroe, May 4, 1822 ; 4
Elliot's Debates, p. 525; Pollard's Lessee v. Hagan, 3 How. 212; Escanaba Co.
v. Chicago , 107 U.S.678; Coyle v. Oklahoma , 221 U.S. 559; Cincinnati v.
Louisville & Nashville R.R. Co., 223 U.S. 390.

      (2) The act is invalid because it imposes on each State an illegal option
either to yield a part of its powers reserved by the Tenth Amendment or to
give up its share of appropriations under the act. A statute attempting, by
imposing conditions upon a general privilege, to exact a waiver of a
constitutional right, is null and void. Harrison v. St. Louis & San Francisco
R.R. Co., 232 U.S. 318; Terral v. Burke Construction Co., 257 U.S. 529.

      (3) The act is invalid because it sets up a system of government by
cooperation between the Federal Government and certain of the States, not
provided by the Constitution. Congress cannot make laws for the States, and it
cannot delegate to the States the power to make laws for the United States .
In re Rahrer, 140 U.S. 545; Knickerbocker Ice Co. v. Stewart, 253 U.S. 149;
Opinion of the Justices, 239Mass. 606.

      The Maternity Act was eventually repealed, but parts of it have been found in
other legislative acts. What this act attempted to do was set up government by
appointment, run by bureaucrats with re-delegated authority to tax, which is
in itself unconstitutional. What was once declared as unconstitutional by the
Supreme Court of this nation in the past should be upheld in a court challenge
today. The constitution hasn't changed. What has changed is the way this
government views human life. Today we are defined as human resources, believed
to be owned by government. The government now wants us, as individuals, to be
tagged and tracked. Government mandated or legislated National I.D. is
unconstitutional anyway you look at it. Federal jurisdiction to legislate for
the several states does not exist and could never survive a court challenge as
shown above. Writing letters to elected public servants won't save us when we
all know their agenda does not include serving those who placed them in power.
Perhaps the 10th amendment of the federal constitution guaranteeing states
rights will, if challenged, when making it known that we as individuals of the
several states will not be treated as chattel of the U.S. government. If the
federal government believes they own us, and as such have the right to demand
national I.D. cards, and health I.D. cards, which will in truth tag us as we
tag our animals, then let them bring forth the documents to prove their
authority to legislate for it. If our G-D given rights to liberty and freedom,
which were the foundation upon which this nation was created do not exist, and
liberty and freedom is only an illusion under which the American people
suffer, then let the governments of this nation come forward and tell the
people. But...if we are indeed free, then we should not have to plead or beg
before our elected public servants to be treated as such. If, in truth we are
not free, then perhaps it's time to let the final chapter of the Great
American Revolution be written..........
