Most Beloved Francis -- Update September 26, 2016


by Anna Von Reitz

September 26, 2016

Most Beloved Francis,

Last week we forwarded the summation of our Joint Claim of Divine Estate to the Suprema Tribunale.  This is, as you know, the summation of eight (8) years of Due Process, including our acknowledgement and acceptance of The Universal Postal Union Treaty of 2010, issued under The Seal of Saint Peter, all the derivative land claims, and finally, the Non-UCC Liens of the actual American states against the "states of states" and the re-conveyance and acceptance of the land assets back to the jurisdiction of the land. 

We have been in contact with the King of Spain and he is fully advised regarding our return to the land jurisdiction and our claim of protection under all our established treaties. 

We fully recognize our position as Fiduciaries acting in behalf of the Priority Creditors of the entire world.  We have requested a settlement of the accounts, first by a mutual offset credit exchange, and second by universal debt forgiveness---including the forgiveness of odious debts established by merely presumed beneficiaries of our estates.  

There can be no bankruptcies and no confiscations initiated by bankruptcy trustees related to debts that have been forgiven by the Priority Creditors. This includes confiscation of central banks by bankruptcy trustees. 

We have asked for all assets of the Federal Reserve banks, together with their bank charters, to be transferred over to the American States and Nations Bank for auditing, evaluation, and disposal under new management.

A simple plan providing for social and economic justice and providing for new economic drivers worldwide was also made part of our claim to ensure that all people will benefit from our peaceful and equitable resolution.

In the days since our Joint Claim was forwarded tensions have grown and focused around the 120 day default of the FEDERAL RESERVE with rumors of "martial law" being declared in America and other places around the world.

The cause of the social unrest anticipated would self-evidently be the seizure of the Federal Reserve by Bankruptcy Trustees acting in behalf of Secondary Creditors.  However, as we have approved the mutual offset accounting and the forgiveness of any remaining debts no such bankruptcy may be presumed to exist and no claims by Secondary Creditors take precedence over the claims of the Priority Creditors--- the actual American States and living people who are the lawful heirs and beneficiaries.

We note that the "United States"--- a British hegemony--- has been under martial law continuously since 1863 and that any such declaration of martial law would be fraudulent as well as redundant.  

We also note that the vast bulk of the American people have been deliberately and self-interestedly mischaracterized and misidentified as British Subjects, with the result that any such declaration of "martial law" could only logically apply to those relatively few people who actually are "United States Citizens" or "citizens of the United States" and not to those who have been mistreated under Breach of Trust by the British Monarch and the Lord Mayor of London.

We finally note that the perpetrators of these schemes against us and against our lawful government have long prepared to use commercial mercenaries disguised as legitimate government agencies as a means to impose the false claims of Secondary Creditors against our material assets.  Any such deployment of these agents acting under color of law --- FEMA, DHS, BATF, IRS, FBI, BLM and so on---would immediately be recognizable as criminal racketeering.

We pray for your prompt action and support of our worldwide initiative, including global debt forgiveness and the creation of the World Heritage Fund and World Investment Fund as a means to provide prompt and lasting relief to individual people on a one-on-one basis throughout the world.  We stand ready to further discuss the need for infrastructure, new technological development, pollution remediation and control, financial reform, and the host of other urgent issues facing the people and the planet. 

Most respectfully,

Anna Maria

Jacob Rothschild = The New Republic = La Neu Republique


by Anna Von Reitz

Everyone needs to get real sober, real fast.  Especially Jacob Rothschild.

Mr. Rothschild has performed a worthy, albeit, self-interested public service.  He has bought the debts of the International Monetary Fund in sufficient quantity to stave off World War III, but the quid pro quo is that he and his new "governmental services corporation" calling itself "The New Republic" inherit the service contract created by The Constitution for the united States of America and get to provide (and charge us for) the nineteen enumerated federal services.

The problem is and has been (for 150 years) that we are the States of America and we get to choose who provides services for us and we also rule the land jurisdiction of this country, so there is a new contract to be negotiated. And this time it is going to be negotiated by us, not by service providers making deals behind our backs among themselves and then pretending to "represent" us.

We were not impressed by the service provided by earlier Rothschild companies that were bankrupted under false pretenses.  And we liked the service provided by the Rockefellers and their partners in crime even less.

So any idea that we are under any obligation to accept Mr. Rothschild's company doing business as "The New Republic" as our federal service provider is to say the least, premature.  We have accepted some services on an as-needed, temporary basis---- and we thanked Mr. Rothschild for his willingness to provide them, but we have made no commitments and have not allowed him or his corporation to assume anything but a pay-as-we-go position. 

The perps in DC have caused a real problem for us and for the rest of the world. And those perpetrators are NOT Americans.  They are all British Subjects and always have been.  The "United States" they represent is not The United States that belongs to us as a birthright forever.

All the fraud and all the banking and legal chicanery in the world won't change the facts and we have adequately demonstrated the facts and objected to any self-interested interpretation of them before the Suprema Tribunale--- the Vatican Chancery Court.

The official international contact for the American States at this point is the American Native Nations, and the indigenous American delegations that include the Athabascan and Lakota nations at the United Nations,  not the Neu Republique, which is just more European meddling in our business.

We have acted as the Priority Creditors of the Federal Reserve and documented our claims with twenty years of Due Process and Recorded Claims and international Liens in behalf of the living people and the actual American States. 

We are the Priority Creditors of all 185,000 corporations registered in this country including national corporations like "JAPAN" and "AUSTRALIA" and "CANADA" and all the corporations standing under their auspices, too.  

In that capacity we have discharged all our debts and everyone else's, first by mutual offset credit exchange, and second by debt forgiveness.  There is no excuse for any bankruptcy schemes or probate fraud and no excuse either for any Secondary Creditors or Bankruptcy Trustees to show up on our doorsteps claiming that we owe any debts to anyone. 

Such false claims and racketeering will be promptly rebuffed and recognized as commercial war crimes. 

The American States have been officially re-conveyed to the jurisdiction of the land and are under the protection of all the international treaties and guarantees owed to them.  The King of Spain has been duly notified and he has taken up position to make sure that the Queen and Prince William get their paws off our assets and stop usurping against our lawful government. 

Mr. Rothschild's role in all this is not resolved in that he and his organization are welcome to offer their services, but acceptance of those services on any long term or continuing basis has not been agreed to by the Fiduciaries. The New Republic employees are being paid month-to-month. And any attempt to confiscate the assets of the Federal Reserve by The New Republic would certainly be a crime and an act of war recognized by the entire international community.

Our country is finally undergoing the reorganization that should have happened at the end of the American Civil War, 150 years ago.  As part of that reorganization we have a great deal of catching up to do and our people have a lot to learn about their actual history and about the organization of the rest of the world, banking, and a great many other things.  America, in a sense, is finally growing up--- and however difficult and painful a process that has been, we have survived our Mommy, Dearest relationship with Great Britain and emerged on the other side of it.

We entertain Mr. Rothschild's assistance and are grateful for it, but it should not be taken as any long term contractual agreement to receive services.  Our people must be fully informed and any such contract must be fully disclosed and appropriately administered from now on.  Our states must be properly organized and new Fiduciary Deputies trained and sworn in and bonded.  A true Continental Congress must be assembled and many issues must be addressed including who gets the federal contract and if there is to be a federal contract.

Alone among the great nations of the world, America has tolerated "sharing"  its international jurisdiction with foreign nations--both Britain and France.  Our experience with this arrangement has not been good and after more than two hundred years of European chicanery on our shores, many of us feel that America has outgrown it. We are ready and willing to discuss new agreements and to undertake complete responsibility for the conduct of our business and yes, to take our rightful place among the nations of the Earth--no longer playing the part of an immature adjunct of Britain or France.

The Arrogance of Central Planning


by Anna Von Reitz

Central Planning doesn't work. It doesn't matter if it is the Chinese, the Russians or the Americans doing the planning. It just doesn't work. We have had 150 years of strategic and centralized planning in America, brought to us by the Department of War and then by the Department of Defense......and......? It doesn't work.
Are we healthy? No. Are we happy? No. Are we wealthy? Yes, on paper, but..... Are we wise? Well, that remains to be seen.
If nothing else, we should have the self-evident failures and results of central planning firmly in mind. It does not lead to health. It does not lead to meaning, happiness, or fulfillment. It doesn't lead to a cleaner environment. It doesn't lead to contentment, security or peace.
So, what has it led to?
Falling school test scores, de facto enslavement of the work force, neglect of old people and children, wars for profit, environmental pollution, increased real poverty in a larger percentage of the population accompanied by obscene wealth for a few, gross levels of waste and meaningless "consumerism" ---that is, large amounts money spent on things that have no real use or purpose, forty percent of babies born without a father, 3 out of 4 marriages ending in divorce, decayed cities, unemployment, fractured families, drug addiction, diabetes, malnutrition, and the list goes on.
Anyone can see the impacts, so just look. It isn't working. It isn't good.
A few years ago I watched a TED Talk and the guest speaker was a soft-spoken Hispanic man who was a legendary business developer (no, I don't remember his name) and the secret of his success --- which he freely disclosed-- was that he went into dysfunctional places like Inner City Detroit and he asked people about what they wanted and needed and dreamed of.
And they told him.....honestly.
And he made the funds and expertise available to them. And they built it. And it worked.
Who knew?
When a man gets up in the morning and his stomach is growling, do the bureaucrats in Washington, DC, credit him with knowing that he is hungry?
The fact is that we all know what we need and we all have a hierarchy of needs and as one need is satisfied, another arises.
We are always without exception the best judges of where we are in that continuum of needs and also the best judges of what will truly satisfy us.
A bureaucrat sitting in an office 3,000 miles away staring at actuarial tables can't do the job for us. No matter how nice he is or how well-educated or well-intentioned---- people have to wipe their own noses, take their own risks, strive for their own dreams, and seek fulfillment of their own needs.
That's the way it is, and also the way we are. Our answers have to come from within. And they are our own answers-- for us --- they don't necessarily apply to anybody else or any other community in any other place on Earth.
That was the Big Secret of Development Success: ask people what they truly need and want and how they propose to get to that destination, and when they have a reasonable plan, step back, give them the support they need and let them do it.
The word we are searching for all over the world is "decentralization" ---- put the control back in the hands of the individual people and of their local communities and let us have the kinds of discussions that yield good fruit. Let us consider what we need in our own situations, climates, traditions, and circumstances. Let us form our own plans for solving our own problems.
Provide us with the tools we need and the discussion forums to mull things over----and then stand back. Let America and the whole rest of the world move forward to find meaning and joy and to clean up the waste, criminality, and fraud that central planning bequeathed to us.

A New World, Not a New World Order


by Anna Von Reitz

Let's begin with the fact that "the world" is not the earth.  The world is the creation of men.  The earth is the creation of God. 

And let's admit that the world we have is not working.  It is not only infected with fraud, it is based upon it.  More than two-thirds of us live either in acute or chronic need of basic things, and the remaining less-than-one third that have their basic needs fully met are still  often unhappy and feel trapped, bored, and uninspired.

So against that background and in full view of the desperate need to change things, let's answer questions about the Individual Living Stipend (ILS) and the Individual Investment Fund (IIF).  And let's be aware that many of these questions have been factually answered by studies that have actually provided such stipends and investment options to groups of test subjects. 

Question:  Is the ILS/IIF some kind of communism? 

No, it's the logical cost of doing business.  We are all heirs and caretakers of Creation.  We all deserve to have our basic needs met and to have the means to improve our lives.  Money is a tool, like a rake or a shovel, that has been denied to billions of people resulting in poverty, misery, illness, war, and depravity.  Where is the evil or political agenda in giving a man a shovel?

Question:  If everyone has their basic costs of living covered, won't it lead to people just lying around "on the dole"?  A giant welfare state?

It turns out that people get bored doing nothing and that even when they are obliged to do nothing as a result of unemployment or illness, they find things to do.  Giving them the choice and means to do something meaningful with their lives only improves the options they have and the results of their activities.

Question: Won't the ILS/IIF cause inflation?

To some extent, initially.  The immediate impact of increasing the supply of currency in the marketplace is to devalue the existing currency, but the impact of creating new consumers has the opposite affect as more money is spent on raw materials and finished products and services that people have needed and not been able to afford. That expands the economy as a whole and sops up the extra money.

Most people who received ILF/IFF monies went through an adjustment period in which they got medical and dental care issues taken care of, did small business expansions, took vacations, and did maintenance and home improvements and in some cases home or barn or garage building.  After about 18 months of this, things levelled out and people settled in to enjoy their new conditions. This initial spurt of spending moderates against the affects of inflation. 

Question:  Won't the ILS/IIF cause a population explosion?

Only if we fail to educate people and continue to ignore the importance of the most challenging and important of all jobs-----parenthood.

The ILS in effect gives caregiver parents a working wage, both directly from their own stipends, or indirectly from their children's stipends.  More parents will be able to stay home with their children as a result and more of them will do so.

One of the great challenges facing mankind is to get our heads out of our butts regarding the importance of child-rearing and the responsibility involved.   We are churning out High School students who can do algebra but can't boil an egg, people who are tremendously self-centered and competitive---  and who have no competence to be parents.

For lack of parenting skills and lack of respect for the importance of parents and families our whole worldwide society is collapsing around our ears.  It is time to change that.

Question: Won't the ILS/IFF cause workforce destabilization?

To an extent there will be changes as people--- mainly women--- leave the workforce to raise their families and tend their homes.  Tests have shown an overall increase in job changes (about 15%) and also more people choosing to go back to school to improve existing skills or pursue new careers. 

There are also indications that lifelong learning will be the face of education in the future.
Without the pressure to immediately gain skills and enter the workforce in order to simply live, more people will seriously consider and explore their options before launching on a career path.  We can also expect higher job satisfaction and better performance, more arts and crafts education, more vocational school education, more technical school options. Education will also be considerably more hand-tailored in terms of individual development.

Question:  How will ILS/IFF affect seniors?

For seniors who have less than adequate retirement plans it will be an untold blessing in terms of security and meeting basic needs. For those who are already well-provided for, it will be an opportunity to assist younger family members and to address community projects.

One of the most profound affects of an ILS/IFF initiation is the mobilization of community volunteer resources.  When people---old and young alike---have time and money, they build things.  That is the nature of mankind. 

Whether those things will be literal--- new libraries, churches, homes, stores--- or organizational -- new clubs, new schools, new networks --- or cause oriented --- to save the wild horses or clean up polluted streams or care for neglected children --- we can be sure that unleashing our worldwide population to dream and to do better things will result in an outpouring of creative problem-solving.  And in today's world, when a community in Saharan African discovers a way to make the desert bloom, their answer will be echoed in the Australian Outback.

Question:  How will ILS/IFF be delivered in remote places?

There are two hopeful means----one traditional, one developing.  In many parts of the world we have a stable and reliable mail system thanks to the UPU.  It is possible to simply mail checks, vouchers, coupons or whatever means of funds transfer is settled upon to individual people at their mailing addresses in those locations.  We have mail service in Alaska that reliably and regularly reaches Point Barrow, so, obviously, good old UPU is doing its job. 

The other means is a cyber solution based on mobile phone apps that can reach into even the most remote places on earth to offer banking services and allow people to keep their accounts and trade their goods and labor with the rest of the world. This expansion is expected to render many brick and mortar banking institutions obsolete and will also provide the means to trade in a Universal Currency.

Before people get startled and think that the advent of a Universal Currency is a bad thing, let me say that national currencies aren't going away.  Dollars and rubles and yuan will continue to be part of our lives long into the future---- but the advent of a Universal Currency based on the already existing Universal Asset System offers a unique opportunity for Mankind -----and one we all need to understand: the first truly honest monetary system that has ever been conceived, and also, the only monetary system that is immune to hoarding, manipulation, and other evils that have plagued both fiat and asset-backed currency systems for centuries.


That's a good thing, folks--- not something anyone needs to be afraid of.

Are You Ready for Martial Law?



Found here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zxEDsJDXnr0

Sunday Prayers for Patriots 19th Sunday after Pentecost

Rev. Fr. Leonard Goffine's
The Church's Year
Nineteenth Sunday After Pentecost
INTROIT I am the salvation of the people, saith the Lord: in whatever tribulation they shall cry to me, I will hear them: and I will be their Lord for ever. Attend, O my people, to my law: incline your ears to the words of my mouth. (Ps. LXXVII.) Glory etc.
COLLECT Almighty and merciful God, graciously keep us from all things that are hurtful; that we, being set free both in mind and body, may with ready minds accomplish whatever is Thine. Thro'.
EPISTLE (Ephes. IV. 23-28.) Brethren, Be re­newed in the spirit of your mind, and put on the new man, who according to God is created in justice and holiness of truth. Wherefore, putting, away lying, speak ye the truth every man with his neighbor, for we are members one of another. Be angry, and sin not. Let not the sun go clown upon your anger. Give not place to the devil. He that stole, let him now steal no more; but rather let him labor, work­ing with his hands the thing which is good, that he may have something to give to him that suffereth need.
EXPLANATION  St. Paul admonishes the Ephesians to lay aside the- old man, like a worn out garment, and put on the new man, that is, to renew their internal and external life. This renewal according to his teaching takes place, when we by a true repentance put away our vices, shun all lies, anger, injustice, &c., and adorn our soul with virtues, and zealously seek after Christian justice and perfection. We have, perhaps, already sought to change our manner of living, for which a jubilee or some other particular solemnity of the Church gave us occasion, and at that time, perhaps, purified our soul by a general confession, making the firm resolution to live for God, and work out our salvation, we appeared converted, and to have become other men: but how long did this conversion last? Ah, how soon did we fall back into the old, sinful ways. And why? Because we lived in too great, deceitful security. We thought everything accomplished by the general confession; we were satisfied, and omitted to employ the means of remaining in the state of grace. We did not thank God for the grace of conversion; we did not ask Him for the grace of perseverance; we frequented evil company, and did not avoid dangerous occasions; we indulged in idleness and pleasures as before. How can it appear strange, if such a conversion is fruitless? Ah, we should remain in wholesome fear even after the remission of our sins. (Ecclus. V. 5.) Even if we could say that we have done everything, nevertheless we cannot be certain, whether we be worthy of hatred or love. (Ecclus. IX. 1.) We should, therefore, work out our salvation according to the advice of St. Paul (Philipp. II. 12.) in fear and trembling, and thus not fall into the old life of sin, losing the hope of a new conversion.
Tenth Sunday After PentecostGOSPEL (Matt. XXII. 1-14.) At that time, Jesus spoke to the chief priests and the Pharisees in parables, saying: The kingdom of heaven is likened to a king, who made a marriage for his son. And he sent his servants, to call them that were invited to the marriage, and they would not come. Again he sent other servants, saying: Tell them that were invited, Behold I have prepared my dinner; my beeves and fatlings are killed, and all things are ready: come ye to the marriage. But they neglected: and went their, ways, one to his farm, and another to his mer­chandise: and the rest laid hands on his servants, and having treated them contumeliously, put them to death. But when the king had heard, of it; he was angry: and sending his armies, he destroyed those murderers, and burnt their city. Then he saith to his servants: The marriage indeed is ready; but they, that were invited were notworthy. Go ye therefore into the highways, and as many as you shall find, call to the marriage. And his servants going forth into the ways, gathered together, all that they found, both bad and good; and the marriage was filled with guests. And the king went in to fee the guests; and he saw there a man who had not on a wedding garment: and he saith to him: Friend, how camest thou in hither, not having on a wedding garment? But he was silent. Then the king said to the waiters: Bind his hands and feet, and cast him into the exterior darkness: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth. For many are called, but few are chosen.
REMARK Thir parable agrees in many respects with that for the second  Sunday after Pentecost, and has the same meaning. See, therefore, the explanation of that gospel, as also of the feast of SR Catherine, to which Maybe added thefollowing:
EXPLANATION In this parable the king is our Heavenly Father who has espoused His only-begotten Son to the Church, and on this occasion prepares the most sumptuous marriage-feast by giving the evangelical doctrine, the holy Sacraments, and the heavenly joys. The servants sent to invite the guests are the prophets, apostles and disciples of Christ. Those invited are the Jews who despised the honor and grace of the divine King, destined for them, abused and killed His servants, and were, therefore, cast aside and with their city Jerusalem, destroyed by the armies of their enemies, as a just punishment; in their stead the heathens and all those nations were called, who were on the broad road to destruction, and who now occupy the places of the unfortunate Jews at the marriage feast of the Church, and shall also occupy them in heaven. In the Jews to whom Christ addressed this parable, is verified that many of them, nay, all are called, but few chosen, because they would not heed the invitation.
APPLICATION We have the honor not only to be invited to this marriage-feast, but are in reality guests at it, because we are members of the Church of Christ by faith. "But the Christian," says St. Gregory, "who is a member of the Church by faith, but has not charity, is like to a man who comes to the marriage-feast without the wedding garment." With this garment which is charity, Christ was vested, when He came to celebrate the nuptials with His spouse, the Church, and by the bond of charity the Son of God also unites Himself with His elect. He clearly lets us know that charity is the wedding garment which should vest us. Those, therefore, who believe and are in the communion of the Church, but who do not preserve the grace of charity, are indeed in the wedding-chamber, but they are not adorned with the wedding garment. They are dead members of the Church, and shall not be admitted without this garment into the celestial marriage-feast in the triumphant Church, but rather be cast like that unfor­tunate guest into exterior darkness. This guest was silent, when asked by the king, why he had not .the wedding gar­ment. By this we see, that no one can excuse himself to God for not having charity, because every one can have it, if he asks it from God, and, as St. Augustine says, our heart is the workshop of charity, and every one who has a heart can practice it.
PRAYER I thank Thee, O Jesus, that Thou didst call me to the marriage-feast in Thy Church; give me the wedding garment of charity that I may be present at the celestial marriage-feat, and not be cast into exterior darkness.

INSTRUCTION CONCERNING HELL

Cast him into the exterior darkness. (Matt, XXII. 13.)
What is hell?
Hell is that place where the damned must suffer eternal punishment.
Is there a hell?
Yes; reason, holy Scripture and the Church teach us that there is a hell. Reason tells us that there is a just God who will punish sin. It is evident that all sins are not punished in this world; there must, therefore, be a place, where every mortal sin, not atoned for by sorrow and penance, will be punished, and this place is - hell. All nations from the beginning of the world, even those who had not the light of revelation, believed this.
But clearer still is the existence of hell shown by holy Scripture: The pious Job, (X. 22.) speaks of a region of misery and darkness, where the shadows of death and no order, but where eternal terror dwells. The Prophet Isaias (XXX. 33.) says that hell is deep and wide, and that the fire burning in it, is like a stream of sulphur, ignited by the breath of the Lord. Our Saviour expressly says that those who have done evil, shall go to everlasting torment, (Matt.  XXV. 46.) that they shall be tortured by everlasting fire. (Matt. XXV. 41.) He makes mention of hell, and says that an inextinguishable fire burns there, and a worm which never dies, plagues the wicked. (Mark IX. 42. 43; Matt. X. 28.) All the Fathers of the Church teach and testify to the same doctrine. St. Augustine, among many others, says: "The infinite wisdom of God tells us that there is a hell, and the illimitable power of God it is that punishes the dam­ned in a wonderful, but real manner."
Wherein do the pains of hell consist?
Sacred Scripture and the Church teach concerning the pains, of the reprobate in hell, that the damned burn there in an inextinguishable fire. (Mark IX. 45.) The holy doctors of the Church say, that this fire is never extinguished, and its smoke ascends or rises from century to century, “I see this fire," says St. Gregory, "as if it were gifted with reason; it make a distinction between the guilty, and tortures the damned according to the nature of their sins." This fire burns, but never consumes its victims; it commu­nicates, as Cassiodorus says, immortality to the reprobate and lets them suffer pain, which preserves them, like salt which penetrates the flesh and keeps it from corruption, as Jesus says: Every one shall be salted with fire. (Mark IX. q.8.) This fire does not shine, it leaves the reprobate in darkness, (Matt. VIII. 12.) and with this fire a never dying worm continually torments the damned. This worm is not only a bad conscience, say the holy Fathers, but particu­larly the privation of the Beatific Vision. Eternally will the thought torment the damned: I have lost God, the only true and highest Good, I have lost Him through my fault, I have lost Him for a brief pleasure, I have lost Him forever. In hell eternity devours all time; and if after millions and millions of years a damned soul wailingly asks his companion in misery: What time is it? he receives the answer: Eternity.
Who would not fear hell, and avoid sin which incurs eternal punishment, when he reflects upon this! Arid yet there are many, , upon whom the truth of the existence of a hell makes no impression, who even deny that there is such a place, and who say: God is love, He can have no pleasure in the torments of His creatures, He cannot eter­nally punish a sin which was committed in so short a time as is the life of man." But those who speak thus, forget that God is just, that His love and mercy are indeed always ready to forgive the contrite and penitent, but that His justice must also be satisfied, when the sinner continually rejects the merciful love of God; they forget, that every grievous sin which man commits voluntarily and knowingly is an infinite, eternal insult, offered to God, which can only be atoned for by an eternal punishment. For the perverted and malicious will of a man, who dies in mortal sin, remains perverted and malicious forever, therefore he must also be punished eternally.
O my dear Christian, do not listen to such deceivers; for just on account of their sinful life, they fear hell and therefore they endeavor to free themselves from this fear by denying the existence of hell; but they cannot succeed; for Jesus, the Truth, has told us that there is a hell, and His word remains for all eternity. Endeavor rather by a pious life to escape hell, descend there in spirit frequently according to the advice of a saint, contemplate the torments of the damned, and let this reflection urge you to imitate Christ, who has promised the joys of heaven to all His faithful followers.

CONSOLING DOCTRINE ON THE JOYS OF HEAVEN

The kingdom of heaven is likened to a king, who made a marriage for his son. (Matt. XXII. 2.)
Heaven is compared by Christ to a marriage-feast because we will there enjoy all imaginable pleasures in the most perfect union with God. In what these joys consist, fit. Paul could not describe, although he was wrapt into the third heaven and tasted these pleasures; he only said: Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither hath it entered into the heart of man, what things God hath prepared for them that love him. (I Cor. II. 9.) Holy Writ, indeed, gives us many descriptions of the celestial joys, by comparing heaven to a paradise of bliss, sometimes to a precious pearl, or a treasure which neither rust nor moth consumes, nor thieves steal; again it represents heaven under the picture of a kingdom, a throne, a crown, whereby we are raised to the highest honor; at another time to the picture of a city which is built of gold, precious stones and pearls, lighted by the splendor of God, filled with magnificence and glory, and where the inhabitants enjoy undisturbed peace and security. These are only images or similitudes, which are taken from the most beautiful, most precious, and magnificent things of the earth, to teach us that heaven is as beautiful and pleasant a place, as we can wish and represent to ourselves, and that all possible beauty, agreeableness and joy may be found there in the highest and most perfect manner, free from evil, anxiety, disgust and fear of losing them.. In heaven we will possess God Himself, the source of all joy and bliss, and will enjoy His own happiness for all eternity. More is riot needed to give us the highest conception of heaven.
Who would not willingly despise the vain, short and im­perfect pleasures of this earth, whilst contemplating this indescribable bliss? Who would not willingly bear all the misfortunes. and misery of this world, when considering that the more .miserable we have been in this life the happier will we be hereafter. What would it avail us to have enjoyed all the pleasures of this world, if deprived of the pleasures of heaven, in, eternity!
ASPIRATION How lovely are Thy tabernacles, O Lord, of hosts! my soul longeth and fainteth for the courts of the Lord. My heart and my flesh have rejoiced in the living God. (Ps. LXXXIII. 2-3.) How do I loathe the world, when I contemplate heaven.
(St. Ignatius Loyola.)

The Big One - 20 years of work filed in your behalf


by Anna Von Reitz

Yesterday I filed the Big One, the Summation of over twenty (20) years work in behalf of the actual American states owed the land jurisdiction of this country and the living people of the 50 States United. Of course, with something this long in the making, there is a lot of remembering involved and a lot of focus required, so forgive me if I am brief with this announcement. I am very tired.

We, the living American People who claim our birthright political standing as American State Nationals---- Texans, Virginians, Ohioans, Wisconsinites, and so on--- and who have moved back to the land jurisdiction of our native land, are the beneficiaries of our estates.  Those who additionally act as Fiduciaries in behalf of our states on the land are American State Citizens, obligated by oath and honor to act in the best interests of all and to meet The Prudent Man Standard in all those actions we undertake.

For many who have grown up listening to a constant litany of "National Debt" news, it may come as a great surprise to learn that you are, as American State Nationals, not in debt.  You are by far the richest people on Earth.

Ancient Molmutine Laws of Britain


by Anna Von Reitz

Let us lament with King Solomon that there is "nothing new under the sun".  

When we go all the way back to the most distant roots of Law in Britain, we find the Molmutine Laws, which reveal the following tenets:

There are 3 tests of civil liberty:
- Equality of rights
- Equality of taxation
- Freedom to come and go

There are 3 causes which ruin a state
- inordinate privilege
- corruption of justice
- national apathy

Sunday Prayers for Patriots - 18th Sunday After Pentecost

Rev. Fr. Leonard Goffine's
The Church's Year
Eighteenth Sunday After Pentecost
At the Introit of the Mass the Church prays for the peace which God has promised by His prophets:
INTROIT Give peace, O Lord, to them that patiently wait for thee, that thy prophets may be found faithful: hear the prayers of thy servant, and of thy people Israel. (Ecclus. XXXVI. 18.) I rejoiced at the things that were said to me: we shall go into the house of the Lord. (Ps. CXXI. 1.) Glory etc.
COLLECT O Lord, inasmuch as without Thee we are not able to please Thee, let Thy merciful pity rule and direct our hearts, we beseech Thee. Thro'.
EPISTLE (I Cor. I. 4-8.) Brethren, I give thanks to my God always for you, for the grace of God that is given you in Christ Jesus, that in all things you are made rich in him, in all utterance and in all knowledge: as the testimony of Christ was confirmed in you, so that nothing is wanting to you in any grace, waiting for the manifestation of our Lord Jesus Christ who also will confirm you into the end without crime, in the day of the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.
EXPLANATION St. Paul shows in this epistle that he possesses true love for his neighbor, because he rejoices and thanks God that he enriched the Corinthians with different graces and gifts, thus confirming the testimony of Christ in them, so that they could without fear expect His arrival for judgment. - Do thou also rejoice, with St. Paul, for the graces given to thy neighbor, for this is a mark of true charity.

Me and Walter Cronkite


by Anna Von Reitz

We got a real television (not the hopelessly grainy eyeball model) when I was four years old.  This black and white picture was also grainy, but you could see the faces clearly.  One of the first faces I became familiar with as a toddler and young child was Walter Cronkite. 

While other four year-olds were watching Huckleberry Hound and Mighty Mouse with religious devotion, I watched Walter. Every night.  Without fail.  I'd put on my Dale Evans cowgirl hat and red leather cowboy boots and mount my hobby horse sitting in front of the television and watch with morbid fascination.

I remember the Nixon v. Kennedy Debates and there aren't too many people my age who have a clear recollection of that.

Like many Americans, I loved Walter. He had such a comforting voice and his dark, serious, but often gently amused eyes seemed to be looking straight into mine on many important occasions.

Of course, I trusted Walter.  Who didn't?  So it came as a terrible shock to learn that he was lying to me!  Yes, Walter Cronkite was lying about all sorts of things and when I first discovered that, well, it was worse than learning the truth about Santa Claus.  Much worse.

Ammon Bundy Totally Vindicated and Now......


by Anna Von Reitz

The Ninth Circuit Court (15-10-117) just ordered the Federales to prove federal subject matter jurisdiction --- not just assume subject matter jurisdiction-- over property "owned" by the federal government.

Federal ownership of land may be (and usually is) merely proprietary--- meaning that the Federales are acting as property managers--- a role that does not create any exclusive use by the federal government and does not create federal subject matter jurisdiction.

This Ninth Circuit case cited above is not directly tied to the Bundy Cases, but addresses the issue of federal subject matter jurisdiction merely presumed to exist on the basis of federal property ownership.

In truth and in fact claims of Federal subject matter jurisdiction require: (1) a Federal use of the land (that is, a use related to the duties directly delegated to the federal government); (2) specific action by the State ceding jurisdiction. Neither one of these conditions were met with regard to the Oregon Wildlife Refuge.

The portions of the Wildlife Refuge including the buildings which the protestors occupied were purchased by the Federales from private land owners back in the 1930's --- under a Congressional Act that not only allowed, but which invited, adverse possession claims such as the protestors brought forward and which additionally ordered the "liquidation" of such properties back to state or private ownership.

Savvy Served Up Hot Every Thursday Night!


by Anna Von Reitz

You will all remember that our right to "peaceably assemble" is absolutely guaranteed? 

 Although there may be other kinds of "assemblies"---- this one, the Jural Assembly, is the assembly our Forefathers were thinking of and the one that cannot be obstructed or abridged, because it is the foundation of all local land-based government and it is also the fundamental means to restore and empower our American Common Law Courts.

If you are fed up with foreign courts being used to fleece Americans silly it is time to boot up your local Jural Assembly, pitch your tents, and set up your local American Common Law court system to enforce the Law of the Land.

Now you have powerful help available to do just that, brought to you each Thursday evening via the National Assembly Conference Call, hosted by the Michigan General Jural Assembly.  

This is not your average conference call. 

What Happened to Checks and Balances? ---Make the Answer Go Viral


by Anna Von Reitz

I am often asked, mostly by older Americans, "What happened to Checks and Balances?"

For younger readers, let me explain.  We were taught that our government depends on the principle of "checks and balances" to function properly.  The Founders deliberately set up the State Governments as a "check" --- a means to block --- Federal Government overreaches, and keep the whole machinery of government "balanced".

Both the concept of "checks and balances" and the reality of it has faded away and all levels of government ---county, state, and federal---have increasingly become rubber stamps for each other.  Why?

Come Out of Babylon


by Anna Von Reitz

I have tried and tried and tried to get this point across: there are two governments in America, one British, one American.  There are two populaces in America---- one of British Subjects, one of American State nationals. 

This is the way it is and it is the way it has always been.  For all those who want proof in the founding documents go to www.freesovereignandindependent.com and look at what the Definitive Treaty of Peace (1783) which ended the Revolutionary War reveals: two populations. One population known as the "free, sovereign, and independent people of the United States" and the other known as "inhabitants"---- British Subjects left here to provide "essential government services." 

Look at Article IV of the actual Constitution.  There it is again, the provision of essential government services by federal employees.

Prejudice is as Prejudice Does


by Anna Von Reitz

I was six when I came home and blurted, "Marlene Meyer called me a Kraut!"

My Father blew coffee through his nose and sputtered, "Sounds like she's got a bit of "Kraut" in her, too!"

The emotions were passing so fast on his face I couldn't tell which to believe: ---anger? ---amusement? ---sadness?  

Gentle sadness won. He rocked my curly head with the splayed fingers of his enormous hand and said, "Jah, you are my little zowerkraut!  Wear it with pride!"

So I did.

The Secret US Prisons You've Never Heard of Before | Will Potter | TED Talks



Investigative journalist Will Potter is the only reporter who has been inside a Communications Management Unit, or CMU, within a US prison. These units were opened secretly, and radically alter how prisoners are treated — even preventing them from hugging their children. Potter, a TED Fellow, shows us who is imprisoned here, and how the government is trying to keep them hidden. "The message was clear," he says. "Don’t talk about this place."

Judge Reportedly Will Misinform Jurors in Bundy Trial

Judge Will Reportedly Misinform Jurors
in the Trial of Ammon Bundy and Six Others 
Greetings Paul,  

We have quite a bit of jury-related news regarding the trial of Ammon Bundy and six other defendants that has gotten under way this week in Oregon.

News sources are confirming what I heard from an observer from courtroom: the judge in the case is reportedly planning to misinform jurors regarding their right of jury nullification. 

According to The Oregonian,

THIS IS HOW THEY DO THEIR TYRANNY IN THE CORPORATE TRIBUNALS.

Elias Alias: Jury Selection In Bundy Trial Already Rigged

https://www.oathkeepers.org/elias-alias-jury-selection-bundy-trial-already-rigged/

Jury selection/rejection began today, Wednesday, September 07, 2016, in Portland, Oregon, for the Bundy trial. I am not surprised to read accounts of the judge’s bias against jury nullification. The Oregonian/OregonLive website posted an article which quotes a few of judge Anna J. Brown’s opinions about protecting the government’s assumed power to railroad defendants.
http://www.oregonlive.com/oregon-standoff/2016/09/oregon_standoff_trial_for_ammo.html >
A passage from the article:
“Jury selection is something of a misnomer,” said Jeffrey T. Frederick, director of jury research services for the National Legal Research Group. “It really is jury rejection.” That’s because the practice is meant as a filter, to keep unqualified people from sitting in judgment, he said.
Further down the article we read:

My Prince Charming and the Battle of New Ulm


By Anna Von Reitz

When I was a young girl I used to dream and wonder like all young women do--where would I go?  What would I do?  And, of course, would there be anyone to share my life?  Or would I always be alone?

Try as I might, I had a hard time imagining any man who would be right for me.  I was then, as now, a prickly critter, spunky and sharp as a ripe cheese-- as my beleaguered Mother moaned.... "Oh, I had a little girl and she had a little curl, right in the middle of her forehead.....and when she was good, my, she was very, VERY good, but when she was bad.......when she was bad....."

Okay, well, dreaming being what dreaming is worth, I decided that all things being equal, I might as well like whomever I liked for whatever reasons I liked him. And I bobbled about like this for quite a number of years with mixed results that revealed no rhyme or reason and no narrowing down of prospects. 

It turned out that while I had really good taste in men, no two boyfriends were ever anything alike.  There was no discernible pattern. Not for me any simple formula of "tall, dark, and handsome" or "blond, blue-eyed, and strong as an ox".   It got to the point where I even I had to shake my head and my best friend said, "Just picture your Dream Husband."

Ha!

Two new additions to the Anna Von Reitz website ordering system.

From the Desk of Paul Stramer



How would you like to have your very own United States Civil Flag like the one on this website?

Well now you can, and right from the www.annavonreitz.com order page here:

http://www.annavonreitz.com/order.html

We have also added a new DVD disk with the entire website on it.

Just like with the Flash drive you can get 7 DVD disks with the full website burned on the disk, and the DVD's are even less money than the flash drives.

The flags are being drop shipping from the manufacturer, a patriot in New York that we have been in contact with since the beginning of this effort on the Internet, and the flash drives and DVD disks are produced right here in my office.

We have a commercial duplication station that allows us to make the DVD's 7 at a time, so that's the reason for making them available in batches of 7 disks.  We like to keep things simple and easy if we can, because it seems everything else about this effort is so complicated. Each DVD comes in a sheath with a label.

We hope you like these new additions to this project of education, and we are hoping you will see the value of these tools to speed up the process of educating everyone in America to their rightful heritage and prosperity.

Unanswered Letters, 2 of Second Batch---- For Rodger


by Anna Von Reitz

Question: If there was never a Peace Treaty ending the Civil War, and we are still under martial law as a result, what can the counties operating the land jurisdictions do to declare peace?

The land jurisdiction IS at peace and the living people are owed all the guarantees of The Constitution ----it's the international jurisdiction of the sea which has remained at war.  That is what makes all this so unpredictable and unpleasant and confusing.

The "United States" is not "America".  I keep saying this, but nobody really stops and listens.  People stubbornly keep operating on their assumptions instead of facing the facts.  

The United States is a separate entity, a totally foreign independent international city-state, functioning as a corporation headquartered in the District of Columbia.  Everyone needs to read that little one-liner over and over and over until it begins to really sink in.

The federal corporation has 8,500 dependent subsidiaries operating as state, county, and municipal governments all over this country, and 185,000 corporations that it claims to own via their federal registrations.  It is a multi-national conglomerate with no particular loyalty to America.  We and our states have merely been customers of theirs and convenient, trusting, gullible cash cows.

Those 8,500 dependent subsidiaries are supposed to be our states, counties, and municipal governments operated on the land jurisdiction, but they aren't.
