The Church's Year Twenty-Third Sunday After Pentecost

REMARK If from Pentecost until Advent there be only twenty-three Sundays, the following one is omitted, and the Mass of the twenty-fourth is said.
The Introit of the Mass consoles and incites us to confidence in God who is so benevolent towards us, and will not let us pine away in tribulation. The Lord saith: I think thoughts of peace, and not of affliction: you shall call upon me, and I will hear you: and I will bring back your captivity from all places. (Fer. XXIX. 11. 12. 14.) Lord, thou hast blessed thy land: thou hast turned away the captivity of Jacob. (Ps. LXXXIV.) Glory etc.
COLLECT Absolve, we beseech Thee, 0 Lord, Thy people from their offences: that through Thy bountiful goodness we may be freed from the bonds of those sins which through our frailty we have contracted. Thro',
EPISTLE (Philipp. III 17-21.: IV, 1-3.) Brethren, Be followers of me, and observe them who walk so as you have our model. For many walk, of whom I have told you often (and now tell you weeping), that they are enemies of the cross of Christ: whose end is destruction, whose God is their belly, and whose glory is in their shame, who mind earthly things. But our conversation is in heaven: from whence also we look for the Saviour, our Lord Jesus Christ, who will reform the body of our lowness, made like to the body of his glory, according to the operation whereby also he is able to subdue all things unto himself. Therefore, my dearly beloved brethren, and most desired, my joy and my crown: so stand fast in the Lord, my dearly beloved. I beg of Evodia, and I beseech Syntyche, to be of one mind in the Lord. And I entreat thee also, my sincere companion, help those women who have labored with me in the gospel with Clement and the rest of my fellow-laborers, whose names are in the book of life.
EXPLANATION There are unhappily many Christians, who, as St. Paul complains, are, declared enemies of Christ's cross, who do not wish to mortify their senses, who only think of gratifying their lusts, and, as it were, find their only pleasure, even seek their honor, in despising the followers of Jesus and His saints on the narrow path of the cross, of mortification and humiliation. What will be the end of these people? Eternal perdition! For he who does not crucify the flesh, does not belong to Christ. (Gal. V. 24.) He who does not bear the-marks of the mortification of Jesus in his body, in him the life of Christ shall not be manifested. (II Cor. IV. 10.) He who does not walk in heaven during his, life-time, that is, who does not direct his thoughts and desires heavenward, and despise the world and its vanities, will not find admission there after his death.
ASPIRATION Would to God , I could say with St. Paul: The world is crucified to me, and I to the world. (Gal. VI. 14.)
Nineth Sunday After PentecostGOSPEL (Matt. IX. 18-26.) At that time, As Jesus was speaking to the multitudes, behold, a certain ruler came up, and adored him, saying: Lord , my daughter is even now dead: but come, lay thy hand upon her, and she shall live. And Jesus, rising up, followed him, with his disciples. And behold, a woman, who was troubled with an 'issue of blood twelve years, came behind him, and touched the hem of his garment. For she said within herself: If I shall touch only his garment, I shall be healed. But Jesus turning and seeing her, said: Be of good heart, daughter: thy faith hath made thee whole. And the woman was made whole from that hour. And when Jesus was come into the house of the ruler, and saw the. minstrels and the multitude making a tumult, he said: Give place: for the girl is not dead, but sleepeth. And they laughed him to scorn. And when the multitude was put forth, he went in, and took her by the hand. And the maid arose. And the fame hereof went abroad into all that country.
INSTRUCTIONS I. Filial was the faith, unbounded the confidence, profound the humility of this woman, and therefore, she received health also. Learn from this, how pleasing to the Lord is faith, confidence and humility; let your prayer always be penetrated by these three virtues, and you will receive whatever you ask.
II. The devout Louis de Ponte compares the conduct of this woman to our conduct at holy Communion, and says: Christ wished to remain with us in the most holy Eucharist, clothed with the garment of the sacramental species of bread, that he who receives His sacred flesh and blood,  may be freed from evil concupiscence. If you wish to obtain the health of your soul, as did this woman the health of the body, imitate her. Receive the flesh and blood of Jesus with the most profound humility, with the firmest confidence in His power and goodness, and like this woman you too will be made whole.
III. Jesus called three dead persons to life, the twelve year old daughter of Jairus, ruler of the synagogue, of whom there is mention made in this gospel, the young man at Naim, (Luke VII. 14.) and Lazarus. (John. XI- 43.) By these three dead persons three classes of sinners may be understood: the maiden signifies those who sin in their youth through weakness and frailty, but touched by the grace of God, perceive their fall and easily rise again through penance; by the young man at Naim those are to be understood who sin repeatedly and in public, these require greater grace, more labor and severer penance; by Lazarus, the public and obdurate habitual sinners are to be understood who can be raised to spiritual life only by extraordinary graces and severe public penance.
IV. Christ did not raise the maiden, until the minstrels and noisy multitude were removed, by which He wished to teach us that the conversion of a soul cannot be accomplished in the midst of the noise and turmoil of temporal cares, idle pleasures and associations.
And they laughed him to scorn. (Matt IX. 24.)
When Jesus told the minstrels and the crowd that the girl was not dead, but sleeping, they laughed at Him, because they understood not the meaning of His words. Sensual-minded men generally act in the same manner towards the priests and ministers of God, who by their word and example admonish them to despise honors, riches and pleasures, and to embrace the love of poverty, humility and mortification. This is, an unintelligible and hateful language to them which they ridicule and mock just as they do when they hear that death is a sleep, from which we shall one day awake and be obliged to appear before the judgment-seat of God. Woe to such scoffers by whose ridicule so many souls are led from the path "of virtue! What the devil formerly, accomplished by tyrants in estranging men from God and a lively faith in Him and His Church, he seems to wish to accomplish in our days by the mockery, scoffs, and blasphemies of wicked men; for at no period have piety and virtue, holy simplicity and childlike faith, adherence to the holy Roman Church and her laws, reverence for her head, her ministers and priests, been more mocked, derided and blasphemed. Unhappily many permit themselves to be induced by mockery to abandon piety, to omit the public practice of their faith, to conceal their Catholic conviction, and to lead a lukewarm, careless, indeed, sinful life. Woe to the scoffers! they are an abomination to the Lord (Prov. III. 32.) who will one day require from their hands all the souls perverted by them. Do not permit yourself to be led astray by those who ridicule your faith and zeal for virtue; remember the words of Jesus: He that shall deny me before men, I will also deny him before my Father who is in heaven. (Matt. X. 33.) Let Jesus be your consolation, He was scoffed and blasphemed for your sake, and often say within yourself:
I know, my most amiable Jesus, that the servant cannot be more than his master. Since Thou wert so often sneered at, mocked and blasphemed, why should I wonder if I am derided for my faith in Thee and Thy Church, and for the practice of virtue!

The Odious Karen Hudes, Once More Revisited

By Anna Von Reitz

Besides becoming an international laughingstock for her Wolfgang Struck escapades, Karen Hudes has remained an incomparably resolute disinformation agent in general.

For example, she has accused me---- me, the one person who stood up and called the World Bank and IBRD on the carpet for stealing the American gold that FDR confiscated from our grandparents on a false claim of abandonment ----of trying to "steal the world's gold reserves". 

Here for the ignorant is the actual story--- AGAIN.

In 1933 Franklin Delano Roosevelt confiscated privately owned American gold.  He sent revenue agents house to house and made it illegal to own more gold than a wedding ring.

All that confiscated gold was used to secure the debts of the bankrupt United States of America, Inc. --- the governmental services corporation that Roosevelt was elected to serve as "President". 

When the bankruptcy of that entity finally ended in 1999, the collateral --- all that confiscated gold, estimated to be worth $387 billion should have been returned to the heirs of the people it was stolen from---- that is, to you and me.

Instead, nobody told us a word about the settlement of the US bankruptcy, and the World Bank and IBRD came in as Secondary Creditors and claimed that we were "unknown" and that the heirs had  "abandoned" our claim to the gold that was confiscated from our parents and grandparents and great-grandparents.

These rats knew who the Priority Creditors were and are, they and the "US Trustees" just neglected to inform us. 

And who were the faithless "US Trustees" who owed us that duty to inform?  It was the Department of Justice and the members of the American Bar Association who failed to let the rightful heirs know and who expedited the surrender of our property to the World Bank and IBRD.

So I called them on it, and that then spawned the birth of the "Global Debt Facility" Karen claims to manage. 

What is the "Global Debt Facility"?   ---- It's what is called a "Drop Box" in slang gangster terms----- the equivalent of a dumpster where guilty banks can deposit ill-gotten gains and try to wash their hands and not explain how they came to be in possession of stolen property.

And that is all there is to it.  The World Bank and IBRD are in possession of stolen goods--- our stolen goods---- gold that we are heir to because it was originally confiscated from our grandparents.

We are the heirs of around $387 billion worth of the gold in the "Global Debt Facility"--- and while there may indeed be more gold and assets deposited there---assets stolen from other people around the world---that much of it, the gold confiscated from our parents and grandparents, is surely ours and we can prove it.

Ms. Hudes and her employers need to stop pretending to be noble philanthropists and whistleblowers, because it is altogether too obvious what they have tried to pull on the American People.  They are nothing but cheats and charlatans who placed a false claim of abandonment on our assets.

As for me "slinking away" from any fight with Karen or these banks, let me assure everyone that all the slinking that has ever been done has been on Karen's part and on the part of her employers who are intent on escaping culpability for their own greed and dishonesty and seeking immunity for themselves. 

In fact, the only reason that I know of that our money from the "Global Debt Facility" hasn't already been released is that the bankers have continued to try to use it as a bargaining chip to secure their own immunity from prosecution--- the quid pro quo being---- "Here, we'll give you back the gold, if you promise not to prosecute us for stealing it in the first place."

I personally don't promote more punishing and blaming and pain in the world. I think that there has been more than enough of that already.  If we can identify those who made the false claim on abandonment and those Trustees who failed to inform us, then let them spend a couple years in jail thinking about their misdeeds---- and for the rest of us---- let's get on with life. 

The bankers did what bankers do.  My real quarrel is with the "United States Trustees" ----those who used gold that belonged to our parents and grandparents  for their own corporate purposes, and then failed to return it to the heirs of the rightful owners and to the rightful owners themselves.  In 1999 when the US bankruptcy settled, there were still plenty of people who were direct owners of that gold and it was owed to them without any question of heir-ship at all. 

Stop and think what that money could have done to make their end-of-life easier and less stressful and more fun?  

I am getting impatient, Karen Hudes, with your idiotic attempts to avoid the truth. Everyone already knows what you guys did and nobody who knows is happy about it.  So why not just stop the attempts to plea bargain, do the right thing, give back the gold to the living heirs of all those people it was stolen from--- and exit stage left. tail between your legs? 

And stop trying to mischaracterize my simple demand---- that you return to the heirs what is theirs by right--- as trying to "steal the world's gold". 

Last time I looked, my Grandmother's gold was all hers.  Politicians and crooked bankers and even more crooked lawyers took her gold by force, used it as collateral backing their debts, and sixty-plus years later when the bankruptcy settled, your bosses opted to make false claims against the interests of the rightful heirs and Priority Creditors.

You acted as thieves and scum bags and you got called on it.  Now you are scared and trying to avoid any consequences. 

Pay up, Karen.  Just stop the BS and pay up.

More to Know About Your Name

By Anna Von Reitz

Yesterday, we touched on the fact that you are not your name, that it is a "thing" separate from you, akin to a tool, or a conveyance like a bicycle, that you are given and that you hold as a possession. You are its first "Holder in Due Course" and nobody using your name at any time after that can claim a greater claim to it.

But there are some difficulties.....

For example, what if you have a common name like, "John Robert Brown"? There can be real confusion about who is who and even, as we shall see, what is what--- associated with a name.

Let's go back to the Bible where most conundrums appear in literature. God gave Adam the job of naming things and animals. That much is clear and clearly stated in the Book of Genesis, but, although naming people is not forbidden, it is not mandated, either.

Hmm..... that, together with the odd nature of names gives rise to a certain amount of trepidation and even superstition regarding names applied to people and also some long-standing questions about the Mark of the Beast. Obviously, names are a "mark" of beasts, because animals are supposed to be named. 
When we adopt a name, do we necessarily also diminish ourselves to the status of beasts?

And what about "nicknames"? Those names that we give each other like "D-Day" and "Sparky", as well as "assumed names" that we use as "noms de plume" as writers and "noms de guerre" which people sometimes adopt to escape detection or carry on business in wartime? Isn't "Nick" another name for Satan---the Father of All Lies? 
Are names applied to people essentially all lies? -- A sort of "convention of falsehood" that is convenient, but imperfect, and not to be taken seriously?

In America it is common to say, "I'm John Smith from Abilene." --but in Germany and most other European countries and languages, this same information has to be translated as "I am called John Smith from the town called Abilene."
Both the Germanic and Romantic languages make a clear distinction between the man and the thing, the name, by which he is called. They recognize that the man is not the name and vice versa--- a point that Americans need to remember and note along with everyone else on the planet. 
As we have learned thanks to the diligence of friends in Australia and thanks to the Great Researcher, Frank O'Collins, the NAME that the governments use is not a name. It is a sign. A mark like a brand on an animal, in the literal sense. It is called a "dead ledger"---- or an "account" that hails from the Egyptian Book of the Dead and even farther back.

The ACCOUNT is not a name.
It merely appears to be your name written in all capital letters, which is a form of corrupt Ancient Latin. This use of all capital letters has been adopted as "American Sign Language", but is also known as Glossa, and as "the poisonous text", because while it appears to be your name, it isn't, and it is commonly embedded into English text in ways that seem to use it as your name.

See the definition of "GLOSSA" given in Black's Law Dictionary, 4th Edition.

So you have a name that isn't you and you have an ACCOUNT that looks like your name that isn't your name. 

The plot thickens....

Your Name, Please? by Anna Von Reitz

Nothing has happened to me.  I am perfectly okay.  I am traveling and working and meeting with other judges and justices of the peace around the country, and meeting with researchers into topics of law and history..... all the things you can see that I do, sometimes require travel and collaboration and face to face meetings.  For the next three weeks I will be on a short tether so far as time to write articles is concerned, so, please bear with me.

The last few days have focused on the topic of names---- what is a name, what do we use it for, what is a legal name versus a lawful name, etc., etc.

Most people take their name for granted and identify themselves with their name.  They think that they are "Joseph Allen Blount" or "Virginia Marie Casper"---but in fact, their name is a separate and alien thing.  Your name isn't you.  It is instead a tool and a possession, like a shovel or a rake or a lawn mower.  It is yours in the same sense that a bicycle is yours.

So that is the first thing you need to understand about a name. 

The second thing you need to look at is that names are not necessarily unique.  If you have a name like "Anna Maria Wilhelmina Hanna Sophia Riezinger-von Reitzenstein von Lettow-Vorbeck" chances of there being more than one of you are significantly decreased, but it is possible for there to be more than one of any name.  And with some names like "James Robert Brown" it is almost guaranteed that there are multiple people who use that same --- or a very similar ---- name. 

Humans use names primarily for two purposes--- to identify and to categorize.   It's part of our sorting system.  'We have a category we call "Horse" and in the category we have "Feverish Fetlock"---- the name of an individual horse. 

So also we have a category called "Texan" and the category "Hank William Coleson" --- the name of an individual Texan.

Usually our sorting system uses names or terms to identify what something or someone is in our system of thinking about things, and the name to specifically identify one individual.

But what happens when you have two or three "Henry Johnsons" to deal with?

Over the next week or so, we will discuss this topic more---- for now, please sit down and think about your name.  What is it?  How is it used?  By whom?  Why?

Emergency Communications - Time is short to get your comms up and running!

From the Desk of Paul Stramer
Montana Comm Leader for Oathkeepers

With the announcement this week by Stewart Rhodes of a new Patriot Truckers Division named
"Oath Keepers Highway Recon Team" or HRT, I have been asked to help organize some of the systems that will be used to network the truckers and everyone involved in passing information in the Oath Keepers organization.  Here is the announcement on the Oath Keepers website: 

Oath Keepers will be using several systems on the Internet and portable phones, but this article is primarily concerned with Grid Down radio communications.

As many of you know, I am in the communications business full time and have been for over 20 years now. I am also a general class amateur and a volunteer examiner #1524 for ham radio licensing. Here in Eureka Montana we have been adding new ham radio operators at a steady pace for over 8 years now and formed our first ham club in this area almost 20 years ago. We did this because of the looming crisis in the world. In that time we have helped over 300 people get their licenses in the area.

I have always insisted that the FCC rules from the very beginning have been designed for emergency and safety communications, and allow licensed ham radio operators to do things that others can not do. That includes operating out of band, or with otherwise prohibited power when people's lives and property are in danger. 

To back that up I present here a letter from the ARRL (Amateur Radio Relay League) that clarifies this issue per the FCC rules.

Notice that I said "licensed amateurs". There are many reasons for requiring that radio operators be licensed to operate on the ham bands and and other bands in normal times, or in emergencies. 

Ham radio can be either a tremendous asset or it can be a big liability, depending on whether you know what you are doing, or not. By that I mean that a bunch of people who don't know what they are doing can create so much interference with orderly communications protocols that the frequency becomes a hodgepodge of chatter and unusable noise. For evidence of that just tune in the CB band. It can also mean that people can become endangered by the very communications that are supposed to help them save the lives and property of the people they were trying to benefit.

There is no excuse for anyone not getting their ham license. The license is free, the study course costs only about $30, and the test materials cost only $5 - $12 in most places. The test is multiple choice. On the technician class test there are only 35 questions, and you can get 9 wrong and still pass the test. There is no longer any requirement on any ham test to learn morse code. We have given the technicians test to people as young as 8 years with good results.

For great places to study for your ham license examination use the free practice tests at or at

At this point I always get the same questions. Why should I trade in a right for a privilege, and why would I want to let government know who I am? Let me try to answer.

First, radio waves do NOT respect any borders. They go where they will. You can argue that government should not be involved in making rules about radio saying that it's "not in the US constitution". There are a couple of things about that. One is that it IS in the US Constitution that government must protect our borders. That includes invasion. Radio waves can be used to invade also. I believe that it is within the realm of government constitutionally to protect AMERICA'S INVENTION of radio from invasion and incursion by ANY foreign power, and to that end there are treaties with other countries involving the allocation of frequencies and usage of those that are rightly entered into by the FCC, and have been, almost from the beginning of the invention of radio communications.

The second point is this. You don't want to unnecessarily twist the tiger's tail. People do that with the driver's license VS the right to travel, and some end up in jail for a while, when there are much more important issues to fight about. The same applies here. I don't see any licensed hams going to jail because they want to use radio in an emergency, or simply because they have the ham ticket in their pocket. 

The third is about staying under the radar where federal agencies are concerned. Guess what. There are almost one MILLION licensed hams just in North America alone. That, friends is good cover, and cover enough for the purpose of preparedness. What are they going to do? Do you think they could try to make criminals of all those hams with the stoke of a pen, and if they did, do you think they could physically enforce that? On the contrary, they would be way in over their heads, and they know it.

If you want to find any ham radio operator that has a license just do a search here with your zip code.   When you apply for your license use a PO Box, not your physical address.

Go study, and when the interactive software says to schedule your test look up some local hams with the site search link and ask them when the next test will be and where.  You don't have to have the callsign to own the right equipment, or to listen to what is going on out on the ham bands. You do need it when you push the transmit button.

We also recommend you get a GMRS license. GMRS stands for General Mobile Radio Service. You can just BUY a license for about $65 without any test, that is good for 5 years, and can be used for business as well as personal uses. There are 8 channels available with wideband, full modulation on UHF at around 462.000 mHz. The license is good for the whole family, and each license can have their own repeater. We are putting up a GMRS repeater in Eureka soon, in addition to about 9 other repeaters we already have.
See all the ham repeaters in the country here:  These repeaters greatly increase the range of your handheld or mobile radios, sometimes out to 100 or more miles radius from the repeater site.
See all the police, sheriff, and other emergency frequencies here:   

You might want to get a scanner from our radio store at so you can listen to what is happening in your area, especially in any emergency situation. Your life might depend on it some day.

My recommendations to get licensed STANDS notwithstanding all the comments I will get on this article, from our readers, about not wanting to get ANY licenses for ANYTHING because they would be trading in a right for a government privilege.  Just write your comments and I will answer them with some good reasoning on this. The rest of this will deal with what to do after you have your license.

What kind of radio should you buy?
To start with you will need a handheld dual band FM transceiver that covers at least the 2 meter and the 70 CM bands. And it would be best if that radio was also type accepted by the FCC to cover the business bands just above both of those bands. Band refers to a group of frequencies designated by the FCC for certain purposes. 

The 2 meter ham band covers 144 - 148 Mhz (that is megahertz, or million cycles per second) The business band above that is the VHF business band and covers 150 - 174 Mhz.

Correspondingly there are two bands on UHF also. The ham band is 70cm (centimeters) from 430 - 450 Mhz, and the business band above that at 450 - 470 Mhz. All these frequencies (bands of frequencies) can be covered by ONE radio. We recommend and are using the Anytone 3208 U/V which fills all these requirements. Find it here: This radio will also do the GMRS band and comes programmed for your area.
You will be very pleasantly surprised at how well these small radios perform. I have talked up to 10 miles with just a handheld, to another handheld, and much further to a base, mobile, or repeater. 

What is a repeater? It's a radio that is located at a very advantageous location like the top of a mountain, that listens on one frequency, and instantly transmits what it hears on another higher or lower frequency,  in real time. That allows you to extend your range up to the footprint of that particular repeater. Most of our repeaters are either solar powered or have a battery back up system that will allow them to stay on the air for weeks during an emergency. Some of our repeaters have a footprint of up to 150 miles or more.

There are literally THOUSANDS of repeaters in America.

All of these handheld units use FM modulation. Modulation is the method of putting an intelligence on the signal that can be converted back to audio so you can hear what the guy on the other end is saying. FM is frequency modulation, or varying the frequency of the signal a very little bit so a detector in the receiver of the listening radio can re-create sound. FM is very impervious to noise, and to other weaker signals, so it's usually either pretty clear, or it's not there so it can be heard. 

That makes for very quiet radio operation with little interference from things like alternators in a vehicle, or power lines, like you would hear on CB which usually uses AM or amplitude modulation, which varies the "strength" of the signal. 

Groups of hams can monitor several frequencies at the same time by using a feature called SCAN which rotates around several channels (with a different frequency in each channel) and when someone talks on one of the channels being monitored the scan stops and locks on that channel. At that point if you want to continue on that conversation you can press an exit key or touch the transmit button and the radio stays on that channel. When you are done listening you can start up the scan and monitor all again.

Please watch this video about the possibilities of various types of radios that can be used for safety communications. This is published by AmRRon, which stands for The American Redoubt Radio Operators Network.  

I am MTOathkeeper on the AmRRon network, and a General Class Amateur radio operator with a callsign of KC7MEZ.  I am also a volunteer examiner for ham radio with a VE number of 1524.  See my station here:  The page gives a good overview of what we are trying to do with Oath Keepers.
It also shows some of the alternative energy we like to use to power these ham stations.

In the announcement of the Truckers HRT division you will see a map, and after watching the above video it should be easy to see how these communications teams can be structured. We don't give out the specific details for obvious reasons but if you are a member of one of the truckers teams, and have been vetted then there will be further explanations of how we do this on the radio. You can Join the HRT here:

The following video will give you an idea of what the bands will be like in an actual emergency.
Everyone will want to talk at the same time, and it will take some practice to make any real communications traffic out of what we call a pile up.  This operator has a unique situation in that every time he gets on the air he has to deal with a pile up. But this is what it will be like when trying to communicate with radio when we have a "failure of civility" in our country.

To try to ease the pain in a real emergency we have band plans that will help to get the emergency traffic to the most people.  But nothing will prepare you for this except EXPERIENCE and familiarity with your equipment and some emergency communications protocols knowledge. There is no substitute for experience and practice.

Now lets look at EMP protection.

One of the best short articles I have seen on this was written a few years ago by one of our hams in North Idaho.

Protecting your expensive equipment against an EMP attack is not an exact science, since a deliberate EMP attack has never been done so that we have any real time experience of the results, but much testing has been done that does indicate what could happen. The above article is just a small overview but provides some inexpensive solutions on a practical level that can protect spare equipment you already have.

One of the most detailed discussions of this topic I have read is here:

Now a bit of practical information for local people that are NOT ham radio operators.

This video is found on the AmRRon website at this location.

Stations like the one at will be monitoring all these frequencies after civil unrest starts.
If you have a CB, don't throw it out, get an antenna and put it on the air, especially in your vehicles. If you don't get one here:   I recommend the Uniden PRO 510 or 520 for a simple low cost CB because we have used them for over 23 years in logging trucks and contractors pickups with very good results. They are tough, and have a full metal cabinet.
If you are a trucker and need a Single Sideband CB the one I recommend is the Galaxy DX959. This is the one I run on my base station to monitor Ch3.  It's a completely legal CB with 12 watts output on SSB, which gives about a 3 times range boost over a straight AM CB radio with 4 watts output. We will talk more about Single Sideband in a future article.

Suffice it to say that with proper training, and the right equipment, you will be a big asset to your community and the safety and well being of your neighbors as well as your family in any emergency. To that end I hope you will ask lots of questions about Ham radio, and here is the phone number you can call to get personal attention to those questions. 800 889 2839 

Again, The Cardinal Rule of Radio is  "Ask lots of questions".

Report on Anna's automated mailing system growth.

From the desk of Paul Stramer

One year ago today we started the automated email system.

This has always been about communications!

Exactly one year ago today I started up an automated mailing system at for this effort to get the history of the fraud used to enslave America and the world out to the public world wide by spreading the articles written by Anna Von Reitz.

As of today we have had 2128 people come and take a look by subscribing to that list, and 1721 have remained subscribed and continue to get each article Anna writes.

Many of these people around the world have supported this effort of exposing the cabal and their fraud, by spreading the articles from Anna's website at to their own subscriber lists, which are often bigger than ours. I have no idea how many people are getting our information on a regular basis, but it's viral world wide on many blogs and websites that we have no direct connection with other than that the people involved with each site believe in the message.

We have a few people in that list that have donated a few bucks to help spread the word around the world.

We actually have been doing some paid advertising now for about 2 months that is helping find new people using the Expatriation Ad Campaign explained here:

This is just the beginning.

I am playing with a world map that will show everyone that comes to the website where the traffic is coming from and a relative idea of accumulated traffic in the various countries around the world.
Remember this map starts accumulating information from today onward.
If that works out we will leave it on the website and see what it does. But for now take a look at the page load counter at the very bottom of the website here: In one year that front page of Anna's site has been opened on someone's computer somewhere 430728 times, and counting. Yes that is four hundred and thirty thousand, seven hundred and twenty eight times.

This is beginning to gain speed now, and like any internet program it will start out slow and steadily gain speed and become self perpetuating over time. The question is simply, how much time do we have to make this happen?

With that in mind, I want to ask you all to continue to spread the word to new people every chance you get.
Send them the following website addresses.    and

I also am asking you to help us with the Expatriation Ad Campaign, which so far has added around 400 new subscribers in just a few weeks. I think placing these banner ads around the internet is one of our best methods to get new people interested. If you click on one of the ads it will show you how the system works. 

Since time is getting short I also want to direct your attention to emergency communications systems that can be used in a grid down situation where we no longer might have internet access, or maybe even local phone service access.  Take a look at this article I wrote on February 27th, 2015 and please watch the movies from AmRRon, which stands for The American Redoubt Radio Operators Network.

I am MTOathkeeper on the AmRRon network, and a General Class Amateur radio operator with a callsign of KC7MEZ. I am also a volunteer examiner for ham radio with a VE number of 1524.  See my station here:   When the grid goes down how will you communciate with your family?

I have a store on the Internet where we can provide all sorts of radios and related equipment.

We highly recommend you get at least your technician class ham license. You can study here:
That link is the national ham radio callsign database. Just use the drop down search menu and do a name search for your zip code to see all the Amateurs in your area. You might even know some of them. If you call any of them they will tell you where to test to get your license.

We also recommend you get a GMRS license. GMRS stand for General Mobile Radio Service. You can just BUY a license for about $65 without any test, that is good for 5 years, and can be used for business as well as personal uses. There are 8 channels available with wideband, full modulation on UHF at around 462.000 mHz. The license is good for the whole family, and each license can have their own repeater. We are putting up a GMRS repeater in Eureka soon, in addition to about 9 other repeaters we already have.
See all the ham repeaters in the country here:  These repeaters greatly increase the range of your handheld or mobile radios, sometimes out to 150 or more miles radius from the repeater site.
See all the police, sheriff, and other emergency frequencies here:   
You might want to get a scanner from our radio store at so you can listen to what is happening in your area, especially in any emergency situation. Your life might depend on it some day.

My recommendations to get licensed STANDS notwithstanding all the comments I will get on this article, from our readers, about not wanting to get ANY licenses for ANYTHING because they would be trading in a right for a government privilege.  Just write your comments and I will answer them with some good reasoning on this.

In any case, let me assure you we will NOT be without communications. You will start to see how when you study. The CARDINAL RULE of radio is ask lots of questions.   800 889 2839.

Thanks for paying attention to freedom and helping us spread the information.

Housekeeping 101 --- Us and Them by Anna Von Reitz

Good morning, good evening, good wherever and whenever this finds you all.

I will be doing some extra work for the next few weeks and as a result my ability to publish will be somewhat uneven. This doesn't "mean" anything, except that I am in meetings and teleconferences and shuttling around from place to place more than normal----all of which takes time and detracts from communication.

Major funding for the actual government of the people, by the people, and for the people is being discussed and provided for.  As more and more people have awakened and realized the Truth--- that the private, mostly foreign-owned governmental services corporation operating out of District of Columbia is not our government and its local franchises are not our states-- it becomes evident that reforming or even replacing the governmental services corporation with a new one doesn't fix the actual underlying problem. 

Read that---  it doesn't matter if the thing in DC is called the UNITED STATES (INC.) or THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA (INC.) or the NEW REPUBLIC (INC.) or CULPEPPER'S FIVE AND DIME (INC.)  It is still just a corporation in the business of providing government services.

Answer Regarding Confusion

By Anna Von Reitz

In answer to the confusion over the apparent layers of "government" it is easiest to visualize in terms of jurisdictions instead of "territories"----which can mean many things. 

The federal corporation(s) received a delegation of our authority to provide certain (19) services to our states of the Union and they have usurped their delegated jurisdiction over on top of ours in contravention of our agreements with them and they have claimed falsely that we knew about this and agreed to it. 

Each state of the Union is also a nation (national = land jurisdiction = public ) and a state (international = sea jurisdiction = private) as well as having its part of the global jurisdiction of the air.

So, for example the state of new york has air, land, and sea jurisdictions associated with it.

Dear Vladimir: It's Not Us

By Anna Von Reitz

We are going to say some things that you, Mr. President, are already aware of. We say them because the American People are tragically unaware of these facts and they need to know:

American foreign trade and foreign policy have been controlled by Britain for 227 years.

This is one of the results of the original states contracting for "essential government services" from the United States, which is a British-controlled corporation headquartered in the foreign international enclave known as the District of Columbia.

Most Americans have never read the Definitive Treaty of Peace, Paris, 1783, which shows that King George remained the "prince" and "Arch-Treasurer" of the "United States". Most Americans have never read the actual Constitution and grasped the fact that this agreement gave Britain control of American Trade and Foreign Policy.

Postmasters and Post Masters, Who Has the Post Master?

by Anna Von Reitz

I keep returning to the old Gary Moore show, Tell the Truth, an early television game show where three people all claimed to be a particular individual and the contestant had to figure out who was scamming.

For example, the actual man to be identified might be a famous scientist credited with inventing the modern jet engine, and by a process of asking questions of the three men on the panel, the contestant would finally have to make a guess, and the real scientist would be asked to stand up.

"Will the real Felix Stonebrunner please stand up?"

Comment on Fulford Report of October 3, 2016: FED v. IMF

By Anna Von Reitz

I have been inundated with people wanting to know what I think about Fulford's report yesterday on the Federal Reserve.  There seems to be some confusion over what his report means.

It means that the Federal Reserve was involved in a gigantic counterfeiting scheme and that the United States Army is for reasons unknown (but which we can guess) standing around letting the Federal Reserve shred the evidence.

The facts as Fulford presents them are these--- a relatively small gold hoard's actual asset value was grossly inflated and then translated into "dollars" by the Federal Reserve.  This had the affect of counterfeiting 23 trillion dollars based on negligible assets.

Advantages of Just Saying----No! -- and Boycotting the Election

By Anna Von Reitz

In a few weeks Americans will be asked to choose between Hillary and Donald.

This is like being asked to choose between Capone and Gambizi.

No matter what you do, it's wrong.

I stopped voting years ago when I realized that their foreign corporation made it a crime for me (or any other American State National) to vote in their elections as of 1868.  Read the 14th Amendment.  Read it carefully. 

Nine million Americans were disenfranchised at that time, including my Great-Grandparents and Grandparents. 

It's a good thing I wised up and rescinded my "Voter Registration" because it is one of the major adhesion contracts they use to claim that you are a "United States Citizen" or a "citizen of the United States" and subject to every whim and demand they care to make.

If you really want to be free and stand in honor, you can't vote in their elections for the simple reason that it is a foreign corporation.  What business does a Spaniard have electing Irishmen?  None, right?

COLB's, Social Security, RV's, Gold Hoards and Ponzi Schemes

By Anna Von Reitz

Every week I get several inquiries from people wondering how to collect on their own "Certificate of Live Birth Bonds"--- known as COLB's.  They go online and check the amount attached to their NAME and are usually stunned to see sums in the millions of dollars.  They do a little quick math and think, "Hey!  I am a millionaire!" 

That's not what all this implies.

Let's begin with the fact that a bond is a promissory note --- an I.O.U. 

That means that all those millions attached to your NAME represent debt owed by good old JOHN MARK DOE and future generations of his children. Oh, there was money obtained, all right---- by the governmental services corporations using you, your labor, and your private and public property as collateral to back their debts.

They got the money and spent it, not you.  And now they are busily trying to shrug and point at you as their "surety"---- the one responsible for paying their debts off.  Those millions attached to your NAME represent credit extended to them  and debt and interest accrued against YOU.

This is done by "hypothecation"---- a nice name for making fraudulent claims  against another person's property without their knowledge or consent.  Think of it of in terms of being "presumed" to have co-signed a car loan for your irresponsible Cousin Bubba, only in this case, it's Uncle Sam. 

This is the biggest Ponzi Scheme on Earth, and you are the victim of it.

Update: Bank Foreclosures and Mountain Climbing

by Anna Von Reitz

Our focus is the "get to the root" of this evil, both in terms of its process and the mechanics of it.  This Fraud is go vast and has its tentacles into so many areas of our lives that it is like peeling an onion---- layer after layer after layer.

As a young woman I lived in Juneau, Alaska, and I was friends and housemates with some Californians.  They were all very athletic, leggy, tall, Nordic types who were out hiking in the summer and kayaking and fishing and skiing in the winter.  Me, not so much.  I am the more phlegmatic German type.  Squarish in build and practical by nature.  So when they began pestering me to climb a mountain for no reason but to climb a mountain I politely declined.

They it up, however, and after a year of being pestered to climb this stupid mountain for no reason, I grimly said, okay, we'll climb the @$#@@% mountain. 

Another comment adding to A Stern Warning About "Satanic Ritual Abuse"

by Anna Von Reitz

The victims have to stand up for themselves and do whatever works to obtain justice. 

If the police and DAs refuse to do their jobs, or worse, allow themselves to be used as tools to persecute the victims,  I have already told everyone what is necessary.  Organize your communities.  Bring your gripes to every pastor, every politician, every club, every civic organization, the schools, the churches, everyone---- and go after the bosses of the police and the DA's like a swarm of angry bees.  Make sure they lose their jobs.  Make sure their lives are living Hell. Hold public meetings.  Bang your dishes on the floor like angry dogs.  That's what we've had to do in Alaska.

And it works.  It's amazing how fast and efficient this is when you really decide that the line has been crossed and you are going to shove.  You get enough people on the move and your problem is going away. 

Sunday Prayers for Patriots - 20th Sunday after Pentecost

Rev. Fr. Leonard Goffine's
The Church's Year
Twentieth Sunday After Pentecost
The Introit of the Mass is an humble prayer, by which we acknowledge that we are punished for our disobedience:
INTROIT All that thou hast done to us, O. Lord, thou hast done in true, judgment: because we have sinned against thee, and have not obeyed thy commandments: but give glory to thy name, and deal with us according to the multitude of thy mercy. (Dan. III. 28.) Blessed are the undefiled in the way: who walk in the law of the Lord. (Fs. CXVIII.). Glory etc.
COLLECT Grant, we beseech Thee, O Lord, in Thy mercy to Thy faithful pardon and peace; that they may both be cleansed from all their offences, and serve Thee with a quiet mind. Thro'.
EPISTLE (Ephes. V. 15-21.) Brethren, See how you walk circumspectly, not as unwise, but as wise redeeming the time, because the days are evil. Wherefore, become not unwise, but understanding what is the will of God. And be not drunk with wine, wherein is luxury: but be ye filled with the Holy Spirit, speaking to yourselves in psalms and hymns, and spiritual canticles, singing and making melody in your hearts to the Lord: giving thanks always for all things, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, to God and the Father; being subject one to another in the fear of Christ.
How may we redeem time?

New comment on A Stern Warning About "Satanic Ritual Abuse".

by Anna Von Reitz

I am not "unaware" of the problem. Nor am I unaware of the history of these vile practices and venal religions.  

I doubt that it exists to the extent you believe it does, because out of all the many people who have come to me and ranted about this, none of them proved to be victims themselves or to have any first-hand knowledge--- and that indicates a whole lot of gossip and hysteria going on. 

And this is why I have given everyone who is "pushing" this a stern warning.  If you do have any actual, factual, first-hand knowledge of such practices and fail to come forward and properly report these crimes, you are an accomplice to them. 

Even victims can be held accountable as accomplices if they don't report the crime, because their silence permits the continued abuse of others.

I have been told that many victims can't specifically identify their attackers because they were unknown adults or they used masks to hide their identities, however, with the breaking of several child-trafficking and sex slave kidnapping rings  in Britain and in the United States and elsewhere it is becoming possible to compile Rogues Galleries of known perverts.  Those visual files can be used to match these creeps to their deeds---but we cannot prosecute them without injured parties and complaints.

So I repeat--- telling me secondhand gossip all day long doesn't get the job done. Looking at photographs and connecting the dots and filing the sworn affidavits does.

I have been told that many victims are afraid of being murdered if they tell what happened to them.  Aren't they being "murdered" every day by the fear?
