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 !!!!!!!!!

29 Nov 2009
by State Rep. Matthew Shea (WA-4th)
This summer, legislators from several states met to discuss the steps needed to
restore our Constitutional Republic. The federal government has ignored the many
state sovereignty resolutions from 2009 notifying it to cease and desist its
current and continued overreach. The group decided it was time to actively
counter the tyranny emanating from Washington D.C.
From those discussions it became clear three things needed to happen.
1. State Legislatures need to pass 10 key pieces of legislation “with teeth” to
put the federal government back in its place.
2. The people must pass the legislation through the Initiative process if any
piece of the legislative agenda fails.
3. County Sheriffs must reaffirm and uphold their oaths to protect and defend
the Constitution of the United States.
With the advent of the Tea Party Movement, many people have been asking how
exactly we can make the above reality. What follows is Part I of the outline of
that plan regarding state legislation, the action steps any concerned citizen
can take to see this legislation to fruition, and the brief history and
justifications behind each.
Step 1: Reclaim State Sovereignty through Key Nullification Legislation
Our Constitutional Republic is founded on a system of checks and balances known
as the “separation of powers.” Rarely, however, are the states considered part
of this essential principle.
Enter the “doctrine of nullification.”
Nullification is based on the simple principle that the federal government
cannot be the final arbiter of the extent and boundaries of its own power. This
includes all branches of the federal government. In the law this is known as a
“conflict of interest.”
Additionally, since the states created the federal government the federal
government was an agent of the states; not the other way around. Thus, Thomas
Jefferson believed that, by extension, the states had a natural right to nullify
(render as of no effect) any laws they believed were unconstitutional.
In the Kentucky Resolutions of 1798 he wrote,
“co-States, recurring to their natural right…will concur in declaring these acts
void, and of no force, and will each take measures of its own for providing that
neither these acts, nor any others of the General Government not plainly and
intentionally authorized by the Constitution, shalt be exercised within their
Alexander Hamilton echoed this sentiment in Federalist #85 “We may safely rely
on the disposition of the state legislatures to erect barriers against the
encroachments of the national authority.” 2
It is clear then that State Legislatures can stop the unconstitutional overreach
of the Obama administration through nullification. Here is a list of proposed
nullification legislation to introduce in all 50 States.
1. Nullification of Socialized Health Care [current efforts] [example legislation]
2. Nullification of National Cap and Trade [example legislation]
3. Federal Enumerated Powers Requirement (Blanket Nullification) [details]
4. Establishment of a Federal Tax Escrow Account [example legislation]
If imposed, socialized health care and cap and trade will crush our economy.
These programs are both unconstitutional, creating government powers beyond
those enumerated by the Constitution. If those programs are nullified, it will
give the individual states a fighting chance to detach from a federal budget in
freefall and save the economies of the individual states.
Next, blanket nullification.
The Federal Government, particularly the House of Representatives, needs to
abide by its own rules. In particular, House Rule XIII 3(d) specifically states
“Each report of a committee on a public bill or public joint resolution shall
contain the following: (1) A statement citing the specific powers granted to
Congress in the Constitution to enact the law proposed by the bill or resolution.” 3
Needless to say, this rule is generally ignored. The idea behind blanket
nullification is that if the Congress does not specify the enumerated power it
is using according to its own rules, or the power specified is not one of the
enumerated powers granted to Congress in the United States Constitution, then
the “law” is automatically null and void.
Lastly, the federal government cannot survive without money. I know that seems
obvious but many states are missing the opportunity to use money as an incentive
for the federal government to return to its proper role. Most visibly, states
help collect the federal portion of the gasoline tax. That money should be put
into an escrow account at the state level and held there. The Escrow Account
legislation includes a provision that all consumer, excise, and income taxes
payable to the federal government would go through this account first. This
would do two things. First, it would give states the ability to collect interest
on that money to help offset revenue shortfalls. Second, it would allow states
to hold that money as long as needed as an incentive for the federal government
to return within the enumerated boundaries of its power.
Step 2: Erect an impenetrable wall around the County Sheriff and the 2nd
As recently stated in the famous Heller opinion by the United States Supreme
Court, the right to bear arms “is an individual right protecting against both
public and private violence” and “when the able-bodied men of a nation are
trained in arms and organized they are better able to resist tyranny.” 4
Thus, it is clear that the 2nd Amendment not only protects the right to
self-defense but that right extends to defending oneself against tyranny. As
with any historical attempt to establish a dictatorship weapons must be seized
or severely regulated. 5
Here is a list of legislation to prevent this from happening, some of which has
already been introduced in states around the country:
• Sheriff First [model legislation]
• Extension of the Castle Doctrine (right to protection) [sample legislation]
• Prohibition of Gun and Ammunition Tracking [see above]
• Firearms Freedom Act [current efforts] [model legislation]
The county Sheriff is the senior law enforcement officer both in terms of rank
and legal authority in a county. This comes from a tradition of over 1000 years
of Anglo-Saxon common law. Anglo-Saxon communities were typically organized into
“shires” consisting of approximately 1000 people. 6
The chief law enforcement officer of the shire was the “reeve” or “reef.” Hence,
the modern combination of the two words, as we know them today, “shire reef” or
Consequently, the Sheriff’s pre-eminent legal authority is well established.
This was confirmed in Printz v. United States. 7 Justice Scalia quotes James
Madison who wrote in Federalist 39:
“In the latter, the local or municipal authorities form distinct and independent
portions of the supremacy, no more subject, within their respective spheres, to
the general authority, than the general authority is subject to them, within its
Sheriff 1st legislation would formally declare that all federal agents and
officers must give notice of, and seek permission before, any arrest, search, or
seizure occurs. Thus, federal agents and officers seeking to enforce
unconstitutional laws must go through the county Sheriff first.
Extending the castle doctrine to one’s person would go a long way toward
eliminating the arbitrary “no carry” areas. Like Virginia Tech, it is these
areas where guns for self-defense are most needed.
Many gun and ammunition tracking schemes have been, and are still being,
attempted. The intended purpose of “reducing gun related” crime is never
realized. Instead, law-abiding citizens are punished with regulatory burdens and
fees. Quite simply we need transparency in government not in the people.
Montana started the firearms freedom act to rein in the federal government’s use
of the Commerce Clause to regulate everything within the stream of commerce. The
original intent of the Commerce Clause was to regulate commerce between states
not within states as Professor Rob Natelson points out in his 2007 Montana Law
The Montana FFA simply returns to that original understanding regarding firearms
made, sold, and kept within a state’s borders.
This list is by no means exhaustive. However, it does contain some immediate
steps that can be taken toward freedom and restoring our God honoring
Constitutional Republic. Hitler’s laws of January 30 and February 14, 1934,
should serve as a stark reminder of what happens when state sovereignty is
In the coming few weeks I will publish the next part of the plan.

District. He’s the author of HJM4009 for State Sovereignty. Visit his website.

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
I am forwarding this for your consideration. Please be responsible with your own life as we work through the nightmare that has been handed down to us. I always print hard copies of this type of information in case I need it later.
The court cases that I include below fortify the fact that U.S. citizens are “resident aliens” within their states of the Union that compose the Republic. I am also convinced that a foreign U.S. citizen of D.C. accepts citizenship in the corporate structure that operates within his state of the Union such as the 1857 “State of Iowa” that operates within the borders of the 1846 state called Iowa.
To lawfully achieve total freedom under common law, U.S. citizens have to wake up to the fact that they are citizens of “a sovereign occupying the position analogous to that of other sovereigns in the family of nations” such as Red China and they are definitely not Citizens in the Republic consisting of the United States meaning “the collective name of the states which are united by and under the Constitution”. Under English common law you are a citizen of the country in which you were born for life (in my case Iowa) and you can never ever expatriate from your country in which you were born and you have no choice in the matter. Under the government’s Roman Civil law you can freely expatriate from your country of Michigan and voluntarily choose to become a citizen of any foreign jurisdiction if that jurisdiction will accept you as its citizen. The common law exists in the states while the Supreme Court has stated in Erie Railroad v. Thompkins that there is no federal general common law. The Supreme Court has also opined as follows:
The term “United States” may be used in any one of several senses. It may be merely the name of a sovereign occupying the position analogous to that of other sovereigns in the family of nations. It may designate the territory over which the sovereignty of the United States extends, or it may be the collective name of the states which are united by and under the Constitution. HOOVEN & ALLISON CO. v. EVATT, 324 U.S. 652 (1945) ; and
“The people of the United States resident within any State are subject to two governments: one State, and the other National; . . . . . The citizen cannot complain, because he has voluntarily submitted himself to such a form of government. He owes allegiance to the two departments, so to speak, and within their respective spheres must pay the penalties which each exacts for disobedience to its laws. ” U S v. CRUIKSHANK, 92 U.S. 542
This means the U.S. citizen has “voluntarily submitted himself” into being a foreign U.S. citizen and “subject” to two governments under Roman civil law. The Declaration of Independence says “deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed.” U.S. citizens born in the states voluntarily provide consent for their just powers and don’t even realize their subject status by their citizenship in D.C.
There are two of nearly everything and this really confuses people. The Iowa Supreme Court has stated that there are no common law crimes within “The State of Iowa”. The courts of the corporate “State of Iowa” will give the common law no standing, all while the Iowa Supreme Court has also opined respecting Iowa, to wit:
We have previously acknowledged that although not expressly declared by our statutes or constitution to be part of Iowa law, “the common law has always been . . . in force in Iowa.” Iowa Civil Liberties Union v. Critelli, 244 N.W.2d 564 (Iowa 1976) In the Supreme Court of Iowa No. 125 / 05-0485 (Certified Question of Law)
This opinion was a certified question of law presented to the Iowa Supreme Court by the United States District Court for the Southern District of Iowa.
All of this is why I have formally declared allegiance to my country of Iowa (not the corporate State of Iowa) and I have renounced my U.S. citizenship in the foreign jurisdiction where there are no rights but only privileges the same as if one voluntarily joins the Army.
George Gordon explains that if a person is feeling depressed and goes to the insane asylum and tells the nice lady at the desk about it and checks himself into the institution, and after a couple of weeks on Prozac he’s feeling better, he cannot check himself out without the institution’s permission. Under federal law, the only way a U.S. citizen can remove himself from the insane asylum after checking himself in is by expatriation in accordance with its codified rules and regulations. You can expatriate from the jurisdiction of United States by declaring allegiance to a foreign country. The United States is a foreign corporation with respect to Iowa and Michigan. My formal declaration of allegiance to the country of Iowa, with explicit declaration of expatriation from the admiralty jurisdiction of the United States, falls smack under United States Code Section 1481 (a) (2), as the jurisdiction of the United States is foreign to the common law jurisdiction of Iowa. We were born to U.S. citizens and a birth certificate was obtained for us and we were registered as U.S. citizens. We were then the State’s child and we could be removed from our parents at any time under equitable proceedings for the best interest of the child. We were never taught by State certified teachers that if we wanted to be free as our ancestors we needed to take appropriate action to achieve the status as free men under common law in the Republic when we reached 21 and now 18 years of age. If we had taken appropriate action we would be “non-taxpayers” as Citizens of the state of the Union in which we were born and we would be capital [C] Citizens of the (several) United States as designated in the Constitution and not small [c] citizens.
Fifty dollar bills are legal tender in the jurisdiction of the United States and in its 1857 sub-corporation named “The State of Iowa” with its capitol in Des Moines. Fifty dollar gold coins are lawful money under Article I, Section 10 of the federal Constitution within the common law jurisdiction of the 1846 state called Iowa whose capitol is in Iowa City. The capitol in Iowa City sits empty because basically all the free people in the Republic have expatriated to the jurisdiction of the United States and under the Fourteenth Amendment are citizens of its sub division “State of Iowa” and subject to the jurisdiction of its statutes. As subjects most people elect representatives to pass such things as seat belt laws and driver license statutes for their insurance companies that insure them. Free men practice strict liability under the common law, and don’t affect any public interest whatsoever. When a free man of the Republic is drug into court it will be presumed that he is a subject with a social security number thereby affecting a public interest and needs to be regulated under public policy. This presumption needs to be properly destroyed if we want to be free. I believe that the “state of Iowa” was created with its 1846 Constitution and is the Republic while the 1857 “State of Iowa” is a federal State for passing law on U.S. citizens like Puerto Rico is the proper name of a part of the United States. I’m sure a U.S. citizen and a resident of the “State of Iowa” under the Fourteenth Amendment could just move to Puerto Rico and become a Fourteenth Amendment citizen of Puerto Rico with the same U.S. privileges there, and have the same form 1040 tax obligations there, or vice versa.
U.S. citizens that are residents of the State of Iowa are subject to statutes that are in derogation of the common law while free men in the Republic are not. Statutes in derogation of the common law law are advisory with respect to free men. Iowa Code Section 4.2 states: “The rule of the common law, that statutes in derogation thereof are to be strictly construed, has no application to this Code. Its provisions and all proceedings under it shall be liberally construed with a view to promote its objects and assist the parties in obtaining justice.” This means that an Iowa statute must bend when dealing with a free man if the free man knows how not to consent to be prosecuted under one of these statutes.
There is definitely a dual system between the states united under the Constitution and the United States that is analogous to a mini-United Nations and headquartered in D.C. The U.S. income tax system is a voluntary system and it is voluntary because it is predicated upon “citizenship”.
“The revenue laws are a code or system in regulation of tax assessment and collection. They relate to taxpayers and not to non taxpayers. The latter are without their scope. No procedure is prescribed for non-taxpayers and no attempt is made to annul any of their rights and remedies in due course of law. With them Congress does not assume to deal, and they are neither the subject nor the object of the revenue laws.” Stewart v. Chinese Chamber of Commerce, 168 F.2d 709, 712.
Again, you can see the dual system. U.S. citizens residing in the State of Michigan or State of Iowa are taxpayers. This is why in an interview Harry Reid stated that he did not understand the phraseology when talking about the voluntary income tax system and was then asked if he meant that “taxpayers” don’t have to pay their income taxes. To most ignorant people Harry Reid looked like a blubbering idiot when he did not come right out and specifically let the cat out of the bag. The Supreme Court has opined that the 16th Amendment added no new taxing powers, but I contend that the Fourteenth Amendment did add new taxing powers for those people within the states and wishing to be “subject to the jurisdiction thereof” so they can receive U.S. socialized security or food stamps or “free?” State education for their children.
Being completely free and residing in the Creator who endows men with certain unalienable rights, and not residing in the State for security, is a very scary thing for most people! It wasn’t always so scary when neighbors took care of neighbors in need, but with U.S. citizenship everyone thinks the government should pick up the task. And the problem is you can’t be partially free in the Democracy that the founding fathers never had a good word for, nor put Democracy in the Constitution. Being partially free is like a woman being partially pregnant. Old Ben Franklyn indicated, “He who would give up liberty for a little security deserves neither.
Because people look back at the freedom our ancestors had while still enjoying constitutionally secured rights in their state, and want to also live in freedom but are now “voluntarily” subject to the jurisdiction that was foreign respecting our ancestors, the United States now has 5 1/2 times the prison rate compared to the next closest sovereignty in the family of nations, The Peoples Republic of China.
A foreign U.S. citizen doing any business within a state is deemed to be in interstate commerce and thereby subject to the commerce clause in the Constitution.
I am convinced that to be free we need to first achieve our status as sovereigns in our states, abstain from interstate commerce over which the United States has delegated authority, and then as free men we have to appropriately break that foreign jurisdiction in its court system that is operating here in lieu of exercising jurisdiction at law. This foreign jurisdiction is the antithesis of the common law of the states. Even if we have the status of free men, judges and magistrates will continue to operate upon presumption that we are subject to their statutory law. The judges operate under this law, to wit: “Whenever the Code creates a “presumption” with respect to a fact, or provides that a fact is “presumed,” the trier of fact must find the existence of the fact unless and until evidence is introduced that supports a finding of its nonexistence.”
I believe that we, as sovereign free people, need to vey timely and properly challenge the jurisdiction of these courts without ever pleading into their foreign jurisdiction with a “not guilty” plea, nor ever allowing the judge to plead us into his foreign jurisdiction as if we are his subjects, and we need to properly submit evidence to the trier of fact that shows our status as free men to break the presumption that we are subject to his statutes within the jurisdiction under which he operates.
Howard Freeman used to pose the following question to the judges while equity has no cognizance of criminal matters, “This court has two criminal jurisdictions. One is a common law jurisdiction and the other is a condition of contract under the criminal aspects of an admiraly jurisdiction. Under which jurisdiction is this court planning to try this case?”
A soldier in the Army is in admiralty jurisdiction by his enlistment contract and if he doesn’t peel potatoes when the sarg say so, it is criminal.
The Bible says: “My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge.” I always tell the grandkids, “Ignorance can be cured, but stupidity is forever.” And boy have I overcome a bunch of ignorance in about the last 10 months after spending some time in jail and putting information from George Gordon, Bill Thorton, and others together in my head.
NEW ULM, Minn. » Authorities nationwide were on the lookout Wednesday for a mother and her 13-year-old cancer-stricken son who fled after refusing the chemotherapy that doctors say could save the boy’s life.
Colleen Hauser and her son, Daniel, who has Hodgkin’s lymphoma, apparently left their southern Minnesota home sometime after a doctor’s appointment and court-ordered X-ray on Monday showed his tumor had grown.
Brown County District Judge John Rodenberg, who had ruled last week that Daniel’s parents were medically neglecting him, issued an arrest warrant Tuesday for Colleen Hauser and ruled her in contempt of court. Rodenberg also ordered that Daniel be placed in foster care and immediately evaluated by a cancer specialist for treatment.
The family belongs to a religious group that believes in “natural” healing methods. Daniel has testified he believed chemotherapy would kill him and told the judge that if anyone tried to force him to take it, “I’d fight it. I’d punch them and I’d kick them.”
The boy’s father, Anthony Hauser, testified he didn’t know where his wife and son were but had made no attempt to find them. He testified he last saw his son Monday morning, and he saw his wife only briefly that evening when she said she was leaving “for a time.”
As of Wednesday morning, the mother and son still had not been found, said Carl Rolloff, a sheriff’s dispatcher.
the arrest warrant nationwide. Brown County Sheriff Rich Hoffman said Tuesday that investigators were following some leads locally, but declined to elaborate. A crime alert said the Hausers might be with Susan Daya, also known as Susan Hamwi, a California attorney who accompanied them to a medical appointment Monday, or with a man named Billy Joe Best.It wasn’t immediately clear who Best was. A Brown County deputy said he was unsure of his connection to the case.
“It’s absolutely crazy. It’s very disappointing,” James Olson, the attorney representing Brown County Family Services. “We’re trying to do what’s right for this young man.”
In an interview Wednesday at his family farm in Sleepy Eye, Anthony Hauser said he hadn’t heard from his wife or Daniel since they left. He said he has some ideas where they might have gone, and he’s shared them with authorities.
He said he doesn’t think his wife wants to harm Daniel. He thinks she just got scared when they got the results of the X-ray on Monday, and thought Brown County authorities would use it to try to get custody of Daniel.
“It’s just my opinion, but I think she figured that because of that X-ray she feared they were going to take him,” he said.
He said he doesn’t oppose chemotherapy “if it’s a necessary thing,” but thinks doctors use it too much.
He said he was trying to stay busy so he doesn’t think about his missing wife and sick son, and wonders why Brown County authorities got involved.
“I don’t know why they started this situation in the first place,” he said. “Why does someone believe they have the right over your child?”
Olson, the family services lawyer, had considered asking the judge to hold Anthony Hauser in contempt as well, but he said Wednesday he decided against that.
“I’m thinking that he probably doesn’t know where his wife and child are,” Olson said.
Daniel’s Hodgkin’s lymphoma, diagnosed in January, is considered highly curable with chemotherapy and radiation, but the boy quit chemo after a single treatment.
The judge has said Daniel, who has a learning disability and cannot read, did not understand the risks and benefits of chemotherapy and didn’t believe he was ill.
The Hausers are Roman Catholic and also believe in the “do no harm” philosophy of the Nemenhah Band, a Missouri-based religious group that believes in natural healing methods advocated by some American Indians. Colleen Hauser testified earlier that she had been treating his cancer with herbal supplements, vitamins, ionized water and other natural alternatives.
The founder of Nemenhah, Philip Cloudpiler Landis, said it was a bad idea for Colleen Hauser to flee with her son. “You don’t solve anything by disregarding the order of the judge,” Landis said.
The family’s doctor, James Joyce, testified by telephone that he examined Daniel on Monday, and that an X-ray showed his tumor had grown to the size it was when he was first diagnosed.
“He had basically gotten back all the trouble he had in January,” the doctor said.
Joyce testified that he offered to make appointments for Daniel with oncologists, but the Hausers declined, then left in a rush with lawyer Susan Daya.
“Under Susan Daya’s urging, they indicated they had other places to go,” Joyce said.
Daya did not immediately respond to a call Tuesday from The Associated Press. The court also tried to reach her during the hearing, but got no answer.
Minnesota statutes require parents to provide necessary medical care for a child, Rodenberg wrote. The statutes say alternative and complementary health care methods aren’t enough

U.S. Congressman Ron Paul said: “Under liberty, we built the greatest, freest, most prosperous, most decent country on earth. It’s no coincidence that the monstrous growth of the federal government has been accompanied by a sickening decline in living standards and moral standards. The feds want us to be hamsters on a treadmill–working hard, all day long, to pay high taxes, but otherwise entirely docile and controlled. The huge, expensive, and out-of-control leviathan that we call the federal government wants to run every single aspect of our lives. Well, I’m sorry, but that’s not America. It’s not what the Founders gave us. It’s not the country you believe in. It’s not the country I believe in.”

1776 AND TODAY: IT IS TIME TO REFRESH THE TREE OF LIBERTY
By Greg Evensen March 5, 2009
I have just finished watching two of my favorite motion pictures, “The Patriot” with Mel Gibson and “Red Dawn.” Although produced in liberal Hollywood, they did capture—in our imaginations—at least, the view that some Americans, at the time when their country and countrymen needed them the most, responded courageously to tyranny and evil with personal determination and great sacrifice.
Collectively, we are brutally aware of the death of our once great Republic over the past few decades, slowly at first, and then with a swiftness that takes your breath away. We have seen a vital, productive, and unique culture raped, pillaged, and brutalized by the most traitorous group of government and business officials ever assembled. These blathering idiots have taken the nation from riches, glory, and moral leadership, to the depths of despair, poverty and lawlessness. Our nation has been used to kill and maim on a scale that deserves no justification or excuse. We continue to support evil regimes that keep the Mideast in turmoil and in suffering that knows no end.
After generations of resisting communism, we have allowed a socialist foreign national to become president. We have worshipped this false god in the White House and allowed him and his collaborators to steal our destiny with worthless trillions issued by organized crime banking families at the private Federal Reserve. As a result of Washington’s declaration of economic, political, cultural, and psychological war on the citizens of this nation, we all have to contemplate the words of our original Declaration of Independence, and what may have to be considered as our collective response to this outrageous and wholly unacceptable chain of events in our beloved land.
Let me be more specific. The events of the past six months have necessitated that we plan for immediate action against the maniacs running the government in Washington and a few of the states as well. As I see it, we have been forced to plan for any number of possibilities as a result of this theft of our Republic. The options are limited and fall into two categories of response.
The first is relatively peaceful and has some limited potential for success. It would include the reassertion of solid state sovereignty bills as have been introduced by at least 20 states (at this writing). Such a move would shut out the government’s attempts to force states to sign on to this socialist nonsense in the guise of “change” by comrade Obama. It would also recapture much lost ground in the battle to allow citizens and their respective states to plan for and pursue true Republic ideals. It would build a wall of separation from the power mad traitors in Washington that has not been present or workable since the early days of this nation. Lastly, it could diffuse any attempts by Washington to invade the states (remember 1861?) for daring to chart their own destiny. At that point, the criminal Obama, like the criminal Lincoln, would be facing an armed populace that would not be fighting over a contrived justification (black slavery), but would be in armed rebellion against the global elite’s well underway plan for national slavery. However, I believe that failing the efforts of the several states to “fight the government” through 10th amendment legislation, the second alternative would meet the test of our original Declaration of Independence.
In that regard, I believe that the time to “refresh the tree of liberty with the blood of patriots and tyrants” has arrived. This reality is no longer in doubt. It is not the wild ranting of a few paranoid gun nuts, either. Millions of citizens, police officers and military troops have been converted to the fact that our nation has succumbed to decades of treason and a sell-out to international conspiracies by our own government that has brought us to this moment. The people of the United States of America did not go out looking for trouble. They did not conspire to resist a central government so cold and intimidating as to rival the Third Reich, the Kremlin, Beijing, or Tel Aviv. Quite the contrary, Americans have endured—as our Declaration stated, “a long train of abuses…” that have delivered us to the doorstep of rebellion once again. When you are being victimized, bullied, forced into desperation by the acts of someone else, you are more than justified in resisting with all of your ability and with any weapon at your disposal for as long as it takes to win. Likewise, we must return this government to real benevolence and moral, legal authority under the constitution. It is as simple as that. We have the right, indeed the obligation to THROW OFF this government and to do so with no goal but that of absolute victory and vindication for true patriots who have faithfully stood guard over the founder’s precepts.
Others among us will have to be dealt with. Choices will have to be made by many. Changes will be reinstituted that reflect our nation’s moral absolutes as enacted by Christian men and women who will honor the precepts of a Godly national heritage. We have not been a “nation under God” for many generations. To claim God’s blessings while we scorn His righteous standards is the ultimate hypocrisy. The Pledge and one nation “under God,” or money with “In God we trust,” are all relics of a past we no longer occupy. Until we drastically change our hearts and lives, let’s not further erode our credibility with God, with each other or a watching world.
Read this most carefully. I do NOT advocate armed REBELLION. I DO advocate armed self-defense of our lives, families, homes, properties, assets, and a truly constitutionally lawful nation. I advocate an uncompromising demand of the federal government to relinquish their immoral and unlawful plan to bankrupt, destroy and condemn this nation to living as a P.O.W. of the New World Order. I further advocate complete defiance in the face of usurpers masquerading as legislators, who have stolen and robbed our nation through force, (unread and undisclosed law) by a completely corrupt and dangerous federal bureaucracy.
IF THE GOVERNMENT FAILS TO RESPOND OR DENIES OUR DEMANDS, THEN—-IT IS TIME TO FIGHT!! It is way past time to take our Republic back!! Whether you are part of a state militia, a minuteman type organization, a posse where called by courageous and constitutionally literate county sheriffs, or simply citizen soldiers who heed the call to defend the nation, you must answer the call to duty that has been sounded. Texas may be the first battleground state in this second war for independence. The all-out war that has erupted there pitting the Mexican police, Mexican nationals, and border residents in the states against the most ruthless gang of drug pirates and thugs to ever assemble is underway. The United States government has chosen to abandon its first obligation to the people, that is, the defense of the borders and security for its citizens. It is the chief reason government exists at all.
The ignorant and failed president George W. Bush let our borders languish for eight long years. The sex pervert Bill Clinton did the same for eight more years. CFR insider and CIA stooge George H.W. Bush did no better. They all did it because it was a planned conspiracy by the Globalists to merge our North American nations after destroying them from within. And now we have the savior of the socialist world, Barack (foreign born, one-world advocate, baby killing, terrorist coddling, black radical following, CFR team leader) Obama selling out not only our nation, but our borders as well. Since the lesbian witchcraft queen at the state department sold what was left of the USA to China, we have now been carefully positioned in the middle of the bull’s eye. Really, they have all made it much easier for us. As General Anthony McAuliffe said during WWII when cut off by the Germans. “Surrounded? Now I can fire in all directions at once.”
Who is the enemy? I’ll tell you again precisely who they are. It is any and every last person who advocates for one world rule. It is every last politician who has voted to bankrupt this nation “legally” through bailouts and sellouts across the board. It is also every last person in this country who has signed on to the support of socialism, or has profited from the financial ruin of hardworking citizens. It is the purveyor of drug smuggling, pornography, and the groups who justify lifestyle perversion. It is the thieving business owner and the pharmaceutical killers who have turned many of us into drug addicts. Further, it is the dumbed down public school teacher and corrupted lawyer, as well as the church leader who hasn’t opened a Bible or preached anything worthwhile in a decade. Lastly, it is any of the rest of us who have been too cowardly to do anything except complain, lie to others, and deceive ourselves into believing that the government is the answer for everything. It is time to draw those battle lines deep in the heart and soul of every patriotic American who will answer the call to now end the tyranny that has choked us for decades. So, you don’t like what I have said? Then you should know which side of the line you are on. Are you intellectually capable of understanding that we are in a state of war? Your job, your family, your home, your community, your nation and your ultimate destiny are on the line at this moment. Unless you are willing to change your attitudes, your allegiances, your lifestyle and your heart, you are a future casualty.
You will leave the rest of us, but that will be your choice. To stay behind and expect the rest of us to do your work while you support this criminal regime is the ultimate betrayal of your fellow citizens. To fight along side the Texans or other besieged Americans at the latest version of the Alamo is what it is all about. To take on the Global Elites and their ilk wherever they may be found is the most honorable thing we can do on behalf of our nation, at this appointed time in history. The time is now. The objective is clear. The way is most difficult. The goal is honorable and necessary. The alternative is unthinkable. Are you ready? Then take on the full armor of God. Steady……..FREEDOM!

In the few days since the launch of Sunlight’s Read The Bill campaign, over 2300 people have signed the petition demanding that Congress post bills online 72 hours before they are considered. That’s a lot of people who want to make sure Congress, and the public, have some time to read and consider important legislation. But that is not enough. At the end of the day, most people don’t know that lawmakers don’t read the bills they vote on and that’s where you come in. We need to show people the problem and our proposed solution. We need you to forward this email and help spread the word about the Read The Bill petition: http://readthebill.org/petition Watch this video and see members of Congress discuss how they don’t have enough time to Read The Bill: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9Rh1PJlx0Kk Pass this on to a friend. We need your help. It is ridiculous that members of Congress don’t read the legislation they pass, but with your help, we can tell Congress that we expect it to do its job. It is also a grave concern that laws are rammed through Congress without sufficient notice for public scrutiny and comment. The safeguard of “transparency in governance” is directly attacked by fast-tracking legislation without public notice. http://www.ReadTheBill.org/petition
Thank you for all that you do and helping us spread the word about Read The Bill. Ellen Miller Executive Director, Sunlight Foundation P.S. For more Read The Bill updates, join us on Twitter (http://twitter.com/readthebill) and Facebook (http://www.facebook.com/pages/Washington-DC/Sunlight-Foundation/6921874941). Glenn Beck is unveiling his We Surround Them program this Friday on his TV show on Fox. They are having these parties all over the country…..
The following is today’s post from my friend Dr. Kendrick. The material is controversial, but also important for each of us to consider before we make our personal conclusions on what the hell has been going on around here lately.
Also, I will be in Springfield this Friday, so if you have been holding off on a treatment, make sure you get in Thursday.
Reminder: Liberty Landing Clubhouse movie night this Thursday starting 6:30pm Map here I’m hoping to receive by mail two new videos which should arrive any day. These videos expand on the theme of “Who are the controllers and beguilers?”
We Are Change Minnesota
Mark Dayton and Walter Mondale both gave their support to a new investigation of 9/11 after today’s Hillary Clinton rally at Augsburg College in Minneapolis.
When asked the question, “Do you support a new investigation of 9/11?,” former vice president Walter Mondale replied, “Yeah. Why did it happen? We need that ‘phase two’. They never did it.”—identifying the insufficiency of the official findings and calling for a subsequent phase of investigation.
When asked the same question, Mark Dayton replied, “You know, I’m not a senator anymore, but I would support one.” When asked if he had heard the evidence of a cover-up, he replied, “Uh, nothing I would hear would surprise me.”
His response should be expected in light of his public scrutiny of the nature of the official account of the events of 9/11 while serving as senator. On July, 31st 2004 during Senate hearings on the 9/11 Commission Report, Senator Dayton made a noble effort to point out the discrepancies between the time-line of events on 9/11 supplied by NORAD and the (now thoroughly discredited) 9/11 Commission Report. Dayton said before the Commission:
“NORAD’s public chronology on 9/18/01 and the commission testimony twenty months later covered up those truths. They lied to the American people, they lied to Congress and they lied to your 9/11 commission to create a false impression of competence,
communication, coordination and protection of the American people. And we can set up all the oversight possible at great additional cost to the American taxpayers and it won’t be worth an Enron pension if the people responsible lie to us; if they take the records and doctor them into falsehoods, and if they get away with it.”
How long will the American people have to wait to hear calls for a new investigation from current rather than former elected officials?
Over 20 states have pending legislation which declares sovereignty consistent with Article 10 of the Constitution. What is acting now as our “Federal government” is not the Constitutionally structured government, but a corporation that is “running amuk”, unconstitutionally imposing authority, demands and even economic extortion upon the States and citizens. We do not have the government of our founding fathers. We have a “de facto” government.
There is high importance in seeing the deceptions of this de facto government—especially in the context of how it usurps our Consititution, our God-given liberties and freedoms. There is higher importance in taking this knowledge of the “coup” and ACTING UPON THIS TREASON against our Consitution!
In the State of Missouri, House Committee Resolution 13 is being considered. This must be moved out of committee to the floor of the Missouri House for debate and enactment. Of higher importance is a yet to be conceived Resolution or Act which declares the corporation calling itself “THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA” null and void—restoring the Republic which is rightly called The United States of America!
Declaring the corporation “THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA” null and void also nullifies the unconsititutional laws and agencies such as the Federal Reserve Act of 1913 and the Internal Revenue Service.
The present theft of our future earnings called the “bailout” is an unconstitutional taking. Both Republican and Democratic parties have sold us out to the Zionists, banksters and corporatists.
I want my country back!
Here’s an article regarding massive money market withdrawals Sept. 11, 2008 that nearly collapsed our economy.
The “controllers” are so bold that they flaunt their grip on us by memorializing dates, statues depicting their conquests, and even putting their mark on “our” money (all-seeing eye, pyramid, secret society symbolism). Conducting the “New Pearl Harbor” on 9/11 reinforces psychological linkages to “emergency”, “urgency” and “fear”. A study of the September 11 date shows many significant occurrences and declarations (Bush Senior’s speech using the term “New World Order” and many other “Illuminati/secret society” links to September 11).
We live in a MATRIX. We are manipulated. As the featured actor in NETWORK urged, “Turn off your televisions! Turn them off!” We are given propaganda—manipulated by our emotions to hate this group and urge that new spending program. We are in an Orwellian time when reality is ENFORCED upon us (the official lies of 9/11, Oklahoma City bombing, British 7/7, etc.).
It is time for the upwising. Do what you can and must to alert and educate those you meet and those close to you. Spread the word: The fascists (national socialists) are here!
9/11 was an inside job
Who is spraying the sky? (chemtrails)
Who are receiving the ‘life boats’ first in the orchestrated “economic collapse”?
Who really runs US foreign policy?
Who are the controllers and makers of our currency?
Who are those who really run the world and decide on wars?
When did our Constitution first get trampled—with installation of the de facto government?
When did our State Constitution get revised to conform to the Federal de facto government? (In Missouri the constitution was revised in the mid-1800’s—WITHOUT ratification by the people!)
You are each sovereign sentient human beings.
Stop asking permission to be alive.
Remember this, when you sign that tax form in a few weeks,
you will be voluntarily forfeiting your sovereignty to your slave master the Federal Government.
Please take this short quiz:
Do you want to own your life? YES NO
If you answered NO, stop here, unsubscribe, take the blue pill and go back to sleep.
Do you need to ask permission to be alive? YES NO
If the answer is YES, then from who are you asking?
GOD Government your Mom
If you answered government = (a small group of humans granted the extra right to use force to accomplish their goals, or a violent monopoly)
then you think this violent monopoly (government) knows more about your life than you do. RIGHT WRONG
If you answered RIGHT, then how do you know this violent monopoly won’t be bought out by humans that DO NOT have your wishes in mind when they decide what is best for you?
Have they been honest with you about how they are spending the fruits of your labor so far?
As long as the global elite (lobbyists) believe that the US Federal Government will be able to extort the fruits of our labor for generations to come, we loose.
If we can show the world we are not going to volunteer to support tyranny, then I believe, with all me heart, they will follow us into a new age of freedom for all mankind on this planet.
All Federal Government tax forms are voluntary contracts between you and a private corporation called US Federal Government.
By signing this contract you are agreeing to waive all criminal activity of your employee government and further accept their leadership in the coming year, regardless of their prior transgressions over the Constitution that is suppose to govern them.
What are you going to do about it?
Cower in fear of the violent monopoly and sign the contract to protect what little property you may have been able to acquire during your life as a free range slave?
Make a stand for freedom!
Defend the sovereign rights granted you by God not the government.
Commit to helping your neighbors,
Stop asking for handouts from the big table!
Never enter a plea before a judge until he accepts the constitution as evidence.
If he refuses, refuse to plea, he has no authority over you until you enter into a contractual relationship by pleading not guilty before his court!!
Contact your local chamber of commerce and start a local currency.
Show up to help your fellow man when the violent monopoly comes knocking.
Alone we are doomed, but together we CAN fix this mess!!
Hale :vs: Henkel, 201 U.S. 43 (1906). Corporations are “creatures of the State” and exist at the behest of the State and, therefore owe their allegience to the State. The individual is God created. His rights are such as existed long before the organization of the State and can only be taken away from him via the due process of law.
“Conceding that the witness was an officer of the corporation under investigation, and that he was entitled to assert the rights of corporation with respect to the production of its books and papers, we are of the opinion that there is a clear distinction in this particular between an individual and a corporation, and that the latter has no right to refuse to submit its books and papers for an examination at the suit of the state. The individual may stand upon his constitutional rights as a citizen. He is entitled to carry on his private business in his own way. His power to contract is unlimited. He owes no duty to the state or to his neighbors to divulge his business, or to open his doors to an investigation, so far as it may tend to criminate him. He owes no such duty to the state, since he receives nothing therefrom, beyond the protection of his life and property. His rights are such as existed by the law of the land long antecedent to the organization of the state, and can only be taken from him by due process of law, and in accordance with the Constitution. Among his rights are a refusal to incriminate himself, and the immunity of himself and his property from arrest or seizure except under a warrant of the law. He owes nothing to the public so long as he does not trespass upon their rights.
Upon the other hand, the corporation is a creature of the state. It is presumed to be incorporated for the benefit of the public. It receives certain special privileges and franchises, and holds them subject to the laws of the state and the limitations of its charter. Its powers are limited by law. It can make no contract not authorized by its charter. Its rights to act as a corporation are only preserved to it so long as it obeys the laws of its creation. There is a reserved right in the legislature to investigate its contracts and find out whether it has exceeded its powers. It would be a strange anomaly to hold that a state, having chartered a corporation to make use of certain franchises, could not, in the exercise of its sovereignty, inquire how these franchises had been employed, and whether they had been abused, and demand the production of the corporate books and papers for that purpose. The defense amounts to this: That an officer of a corporation which is charged with a criminal violation of the statute, may plead the criminality of such corporation as a refusal to produce its books. To state this proposition is to answer it. While an individual may lawfully refuse to answer incriminating questions unless protected by an immunity statute, it does not follow that a corporation, vested with special privileges and franchises, may refuse to show its hand when charged with an abuse of such privileges.”
By Neal Ross 4 Aug 2008/In 1975 rock guitarist Ted Nugent recorded a song entitled Stormtroopin. In it he sang, “Where’s the justice and where’s that law. Raise your healthy voice.” That was thirty three years ago, yet the question still arises, just where is the justice, and where is that law.
When one talks about who has the power in this country, I often find that people assume that the power lies with the government. That was not always so. Our very first president, George Washington, once said, “The power under the constitution will always be in the people. It is intrusted for certain defined purposes, and for a certain limited period, to representatives of their own choosing; and, whenever it is executed contrary to their interest, or not agreeable to their wishes, their servants can and undoubtedly will be recalled.”
That is a very powerful statement, yet for the people to hold on to that power they must be willing to exercise it, sometimes at great cost. For them to fear what may befall them should they go against the many agencies of the federal government means that they have willingly given up their rightful power and that the government, instead of being the servant, has become the master.
The federal government only exists because the Constitution for the United States of America grants it the power to govern. Article six of the Constitution states, “This Constitution, and the laws of the United States which shall be made in pursuance thereof; and all treaties made, or which shall be made, under the authority of the United States, shall be the supreme law of the land; and the judges in every state shall be bound thereby, anything in the Constitution or laws of any State to the contrary notwithstanding.”
James Madison, who many consider the author of the Constitution, declared in a speech in the Virginia Ratifying Convention, “[T]he powers of the federal government are enumerated; it can only operate in certain cases; it has legislative powers on defined and limited objects, beyond which it cannot extend its jurisdiction.”
Ten Years later Thomas Jefferson wrote, “Whensoever the General Government assumes undelegated powers, its acts are unauthoritative, void, and of no force.”
Even Alexander Hamilton, who stood for a loose interpretation of the Constitution stated, “No legislative act contrary to the Constitution can be valid.”
People assume that our Constitution grants our legislators whatever powers they deem necessary to govern the people. That is not the case. As Jefferson said, “[The purpose of a written constitution is] to bind up the several branches of government by certain laws, which, when they transgress, their acts shall become nullities; to render unnecessary an appeal to the people, or in other words a rebellion, on every infraction of their rights, on the peril that their acquiescence shall be construed into an intention to surrender those rights.”
Short of open rebellion, what are a people to do when their government wields the ability to imprison them for violating laws that are blatantly unconstitutional? First off people must become familiar with the limitations our Constitution places upon our government. As long as we do not understand the true function of government, then we will remain slaves to it. James Madison once said, “Knowledge will forever govern ignorance; and a people who mean to be their own governors must arm themselves with the power which knowledge gives.”
Yet even knowledge is not enough. People must be willing to stand up for their beliefs and use the law against those who would pervert it. Each of us, according to the Sixth Amendment, shall “…enjoy the right to a speedy and public trial, by an impartial jury…”
Therein lies our true power over an abusive tyrannical government. Thomas Jefferson said of this concept, “I consider trial by jury as the only anchor yet imagined by man by which a government can be held to the principles of its constitution.”
Therefore, if the people become aware of the limitations placed upon the government by the Constitution, and find themselves in a court of law for violating a law that is unconstitutional, there is one thing, which our government does not wish for us to know, which can clear us of all charges, that being jury nullification.
Jury nullification is when the jury finds a person innocent due to the fact that they find the law under which a person is charged null and void. This may sound radical by today’s standards, but consider what John Jay, our very first Chief Justice of the Supreme Court once said, “The jury has the right to judge both the law as well as the fact in controversy.” Therefore, a jury may acquits any defendant due to the fact that the law he is charged with is unconstitutional. You have to remember, as George Washington said, “The power under the constitution will always be in the people.”
If the power under the Constitution lies with the people, and that juries consist of our peers, and that juries are also to “…judge both the law as well as the fact …” then that is a mighty tool we wield to fight against usurpations of power by our government.
Jury nullification is something that was commonly understood by jurors, in fact it was explained to them by the judges themselves. However in the 1800’s the judges began questioning jurors to find if they were prejudiced against the governments position. If found to be biased against the government, they were dismissed.
Then, in 1895, the Supreme Court ruled that courts no longer had to inform juries that they had the power to veto an unjust law. In U.S. v Moylan, the Fourth Circuit Court affirmed the right of jury nullification, yet upheld the courts right to refuse that the jurors be notified of that right. In U.S. v Dougherty 473 F.2d 1113, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia ruled similarly, stating that jury nullification is a de facto power, but they also ruled that a defense attorney may not inform the jury of that right.
Jury nullification is something very few are familiar with. Jurors are now instructed by the judge, as they are in California, ““It becomes my duty as judge to instruct you concerning the law applicable to this case, and it is your duty as jurors to follow the law as I shall state it to you . . . You are to be governed solely by the evidence introduced in this trial as the law as stated to you by me.”
In 1788, during the debates for the ratification of the Constitution, it was argued, “If a juror accepts as the law that which the judge states, then that juror has accepted the exercise of absolute authority of a government employee and has surrendered a power and right that once was the citizens safeguard of liberty.”
John Adams, our second President once said, “…it is not only his right, but his duty – to find the verdict according to his own best understanding, judgment, and conscience, though in direct opposition to the direction of the court.” (Yale Law Journal, 1964:173)
Jury nullification is a powerful tool that can be wielded by the people against their government. Yet it can only be wielded by a people who are informed as to the true functions of their government according to the Constitution.
This is why I repeat, ad naseum, that our apathy is what is allowing this country to sink further towards our own destruction. How can we fight against an overwhelming government if we are not informed?
Jury nullification cannot work when only one person has the courage to stand up and argue against punishing our fellow countrymen for violating laws that are unjust.
As long as we blindly follow political parties who have no desire to uphold the Constitution, we have no hope of reclaiming our freedom. As long as we rely upon the news media to inform and educate us concerning the true function of our government, we will continue existing as servants to an ungrateful master.
As Ted Nugent said, “Where’s the justice and where’s that law. Raise your healthy voice.”
