INSTRUCTION ON THE SIXTH SUNDAY AFTER EASTER

Rev. Fr. Leonard Goffine's
The Church's Year

This Sunday and the whole week should serve as a preparation for the festival of Pentecost, that we may be enabled by good works and pious devotional exercises, to receive the gifts of the Holy Ghost. At the Introit the Church sings:
INTROIT
Hear, O Lord, my voice, with which I have cried to thee, alleluia. My heart bath said to thee: I have sought thy face, thy face, O Lord, I will seek: turn not away thy face from me, allel. allel. The Lord is my light and my salvation: whom shall I fear? (Ps. XXVI. 7-9.) Glory be to the Father, etc.
COLLECT  Almighty, everlasting God, grant us ever to have a will devoted to Thee, and to serve Thy majesty with a sincere heart. Through .etc.
EPISTLE (1 Peter IV. 7-11.) Dearly beloved, be prudent, and watch in prayers. But before all things, have a constant mutual charity among yourselves; for charity covereth a multitude of sins. Using hospitality one towards another without murmuring: as every man hath received grace, ministering the same one to another, as good stewards of the manifold grace of God. If any man speak, let him speak as the words of God: if any man minister, let him do it as of the power which God administereth; that in all things God may be honored through Jesus Christ, our Lord.
EXPLANATION The practice of the virtues which St. Peter here prescribes for the faithful, is an excellent preparation for the reception of the Holy Ghost, for nothing renders us more worthy of His visit than true love for our neighbor, the good use of God's gifts; and the faithful discharge of the duties of our state of life. Strive, therefore, to practise these virtues and thus make yourself less unworthy of the gifts of the Holy Ghost. Say daily during the week the following prayer: Come, Holy Spirit, who hast assembled the people of all tongues in unity of faith, fill the hearts of Thy faithful, and kindle in them the fire of Thy divine love.
GOSPEL (John XV. 26-27., to XVI. 1-4.) At that time, Jesus said to his disciples: When the Paraclete cometh, whom I will send you from the Father, the Spirit of truth, who proceedeth from the Father, he shall give testimony of me: and you shall give testimony, because you are with me from the beginning. These things have I spoken to you, that you may not be scandalized. They put you out of the synagogues: yea, the hour cometh, that whomsoever killeth you will think that he doth a service to God. And these things will they do to you, because they have not known the Father, nor me. But these things I have told you, that, when the hour shall come, you may remember that I told you.
Why is the Holy Ghost called the Paraclete?
Through the apostles and disciples whom He made so eloquent and so courageous that they intrepidly professed and preached Christ to be the Son of God, and the true Messiah. This doctrine He confirmed by astounding miracles, and sealed it by their blood which they shed in its defence The Holy Ghost still gives testimony of Christ through the Church, that is, the clergy, through whom He speaks, and who must, therefore, be listened to reverently. We must also give testimony of Christ and profess by our lives, by patience in crosses and afflictions that He is our Teacher, our Lord, and our God; for if we do not thus acknowledge' Him in this world He will deny us before His Father in heaven. (Matt X. 33.)
Did the Jews sin in persecuting and putting to death the apostles?
Undoubtedly; for although they erroneously believed they were doing God a service, their ignorance and error were very sinful and deserving of punishment, because they could easily have known and been instructed in the truth.
Those Christians who neglect all religious instruction hardly know what is necessary for salvation, and make light of many things which are grievous sins; as also those who are in doubt whether they justly or unjustly possess certain goods, and yet through fear of being compelled to make restitution, neglect to settle the doubts such are in culpable ignorance.
What must every Christian know and believe in order to be saved?
That there is but one God, who has created and governs all things; that God is a just judge, who rewards the good and punishes the wicked; that there are in the Deity three persons, the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost; that the Son of God became man for love of us, taught us, and by His death on the cross redeemed us; that the Holy Ghost sanctifies us by His grace, without which we cannot become virtuous or be saved; that man's soul is immortal.
PETITION Send us, O Lord Jesus ! the Paraclete, that He may console and strengthen us in all our afflictions. Enlighten us by Thy Holy Spirit that we may learn and live in accordance with the truths of faith. Amen.

INSTRUCTION ON SCANDAL

These things have I spoken to you, that you may not be scandalized. (John XVI. 1.)
How is scandal given?
By speaking, doing or omitting that which will be, to others an occasion, of sin: Scandal is given in different ways, for instance: if you dress improperly, speak improper words, or sing bad songs; by which you can see, that your neighbor will be tempted to think, desire or act wrongly; or what is worse, if you act sinfully, in the presence of, others, or bring bad books., books against good morals, or against the holy faith, among people; if you incite others to anger, cursing, and vengeance, or if you prevent them from attending church, the sermon, or catechetical instruction, etc. In all these things you become guilty of scandal, as well as of all the sins to which it gives rise.
If at the Last judgment we will be unable to, give an account of our own sins, how, then can we answer for the innumerable sins caused by, the scandal we have given? Therefore Christ pronounces a terrible, woe upon those who give scandal. Woe to that man, He says, by whom the scandal cometh! It were better for him, that a millstone should be hanged about his neck, and that he should be drowned in the depth of the sea. (Matt. XVIII.)
How do parents give scandal?
By giving their children bad example; by excessive anger, cursing and swearing; by avarice, injustice and cheating; by discord and quarrels; by gluttony in eating and drinking; by extravagance and vanity in dress; by sneering at religion, good morals, etc.; by not keeping their children from evil company, but sometimes even bringing them into it; by not punishing and endeavoring to eradicate their children's vices. How much parents sin, through such scandals, cannot be expressed; at the Day of judgment their children will be their accusers!
How do masters give scandal to their servants and those under their care?
In the same way as parents do to their children; by keeping them away from, or not urging them by their own example or command to attend church on Sundays and holy-days; by giving them meat on fast-days; by commanding them to do sinful things, such as stealing, injuring others, etc.

INSTRUCTION ON PREPARATION FOR PENTECOST

1). We should withdraw, after the example of the Blessed Virgin and the apostles, to some solitary place, or at least avoid, intercourse with others, as much as possible; speak but little, and apply ourselves to earnest and persevering prayer; for in solitude God speaks to man.
2). We should purify our conscience by a contrite confession, become reconciled to our neighbor, if we have lived in enmity; for the Holy Ghost, as a spirit of peace and purity, lives only in pure and peaceful souls. (Ps. IXXV. 3.)
3). We should give alms according to our means, for it is said in the Acts of the Apostles (Acts X.) of the Gentile centurion Cornelius, that by prayer and alms-deeds he made himself worthy of the gifts of the Holy Ghost.
4). We should fervently desire to receive the Holy Ghost, and should give expression to this longing by frequent aspirations to God, making use of the prayer: "Come, O Holy Ghost, etc."

More Personal (as in "Private Natural Person") Notes


By Anna Von Reitz

I just want to say thank you to all of those who read these lines and those who stop to pray for our country and those who send money to help our cause and keep gas in the car and ink on the pages. It wouldn't be possible without all of you pulling along beside us from every corner of America. 

William Gilbert B. --- I don't have a way to get hold of you, but I sent you a present that should be waiting for you at General Delivery.  Hope someone there has presence of mind enough to flag you down. 

Victor L. -- I am fine, just working my tail off and suffering my usual seasonal allergies, so not quite as feisty as normal.

Jack and Phyllis -- Old friends are the dearest.  We have come a long way together and continue on, come what may.  Hugs across the miles....

Stanley R. -- California is one of the most beautiful of all our beautiful states, yet it has the very worst political problems. It's people like you who have to lead it home.

Steven L. from Missouri, your state has been instrumental in exposing the Great Fraud.  If it weren't for an octogenarian from Missouri, we wouldn't have half the evidence we need.  Thank you for your steadfast support!

Philip R. --- Your "donation for freedom" touched my heart.  I wept a little bit.  In it's way, your sentiment -- three words on the "Memo" line of a check --  said it all.

Bill S. from Wyoming, I know how much you love your state, and the Big Sky above it.  We are all treading hard roads together. Thank you for your help in these very troubled times.

Diana L. B. from New York, New York--- if you are reading this, please know that the epicenter of this entire evil is right there in your city and your state as much as it is in Washington, DC.  If we are to succeed in saving America, it comes push to shove right there where you live.  Be a beacon to those in darkness.  Share the news however you can.

Ronald E. and Mary L. -- thank you so much!  Are you aware of the brave fight that your New Hampshire Representative Dick Marple is putting up for you and for all Americans?  Once again, your state is standing tall in the fight for freedom, and once again, the people of New Hampshire are heeding the call. It was wonderful to hear from you.

D.L. and J.M. from Palm Springs---- it means a lot to me to hear from Californians like you and to know that in spite of all the clap-trap coming out of some of the universities and too many California politicians, there are still people who think and act and fend for themselves in California.  You made my day!

Terri A. -- You do the Nevada State proud.  God bless!  Let me know if I answered your question well enough.

Robert Lee -- It's a long road to freedom for us all.  So much bad has happened sometimes it is hard to imagine that it can turn out for the good--- but it can, and it will, because of people like you.  If nothing else, we are all too knot-headed to give up.  We will make it count for something in the end.

Peter/Rise -- I will try to get back to you about your suggestion.  It's a good one. I just haven't had the expertise and money to do it yet.

Sandra H. from Michigan, it was good to hear from you. Michigan is one of my favorite states and I hope to visit there this coming fall.  Maybe we could meet?Michigan has preserved knowledge and records that are precious to us all and its people continue to inspire me.   

John G.W. from Illinois -- Did you know that the Plague of the Bar Associations began right there in Illinois?  We are still burdened by the unjust assault of those who owe us "peace" and "amity" in "perpetuity" and who have paid us with personage and barratry instead.  Thank you for supporting The Living Law Firm and a new breed of lawyer dedicated to Justice.

J. Allen -- Thanks for the book!  I know Joe Kovacs' work very well and have been sharing his books with my Sister and other members of my family.  I don't know how atheists make it through life with nothing but death, taxes, and ice storms to believe in.  I know I wouldn't have made it without a firm faith.

Sally and James -- We received your gift just before one of The Living Law Firm's computers crashed and burned.  With your help, we were able to buy another, download from the prior day back up, and kept right on going.  How's that for "priceless"?  Big smiles and THANK YOU!!!

Chris T. --- We need more people from Ohio.  For reasons that I suspect but can't yet prove, the land fraud is worst of all in Ohio.  We have foreigners coming into Ohio right and left trying to steal farms from the farmers who have been there for generations.  Please help spread the word that The Living Law Firm is researching what's going on there and that the USDA needs to cough up the land patents it owes the people in Ohio. 

As I look at the piles of correspondence coming in, I realize I will never be able to answer it all and that I will very likely never be able to write all the thank you notes I owe.  I realize, too, that our support is from the true heart of our nation, from grandmothers and grandfathers and young families and small business owners near and far.  I just can't thank you all enough, so I will stop for now. 

Maybe from reading these quick notes to people all over this country you can all begin to grasp and feel --- as I do --- that you are not alone and this is not some fool's errand, but a living and growing movement from deep in the grassroots of America. The people of this country are coming home to reclaim their birthright and their lawful government from the jaws of foreign corporations that owe us their Good Faith service and allegiance. 

There are 400 million of us, give or take a few, and 515 of them. 


I like the odds.  Let's go!

Ravalli Voice Seventy-Second Edition June 2017

 

Editor's Introduction
This month our commentary is devoted entirely to the rapidly growing Muslim insurgency. Don't
be deceived by liberal Muslim apologists nor the highly biased US news media. Islam has been a
festering problem for the past 1500 years, but in recent times growing from a regional to a global
threat to peace.
Islam  
Islam followed the birth of Christianity by slightly over 600 years. Now considered one of the
world's three great religions, it was founded by the Prophet Muhammad in 610 AD. The three
religions are Judaism, Christianity and Islam. All three religions are based upon monotheism,
meaning belief in only one god. Islam's god is Allah and Muhammad was his prophet
Contrary to what some liberal apologists now tell us, the Christian and Muslim gods are not one
and the same. Islam's equivalent of the Christian Bible is the Qur'an, also referred to as the
Koran. Islam's traditional capitol is Mecca, located in present-day Saudi Arabia. At least once in
his life, every Muslim is expected to make a pilgrimage to Mecca.
Islam's Prophet Muhammad was born in Mecca Arabia in approximately the year 570 AD. He
was active as a religious leader from 609 to 632 AD. Muhammad's father died before he was
born, and his mother died when he was about 6-years old. He first married at about 25 years old,
to a woman 15 years his senior. By all accounts, it was a happy marriage. In all, Muhammad
eventually had 13 wives. Muhammad died at age 62 in 632 AD.
In 610 , Muhammad meditated in a cave on a religious retreat. Some historians suggest that it
was a Christian religious retreat because Islam did not yet exist before Muhammad experienced
his revelation in the cave. Although Muslims now label such a suggestion blasphemy, they offer
no explanation otherwise. Thereafter Muhammad claimed that God's angel Michael had come to
him and ordained him to preach Islamic religious philosophy. Michael certainly would not have
advised Muhammad to kill Christians and Jews, but Michael's imposter Satan would more likely
have been the culprit.
In 622 AD, Muhammad and most of his followers moved to Medina. There the emerging warrior
Muhammad began a series of raids. His first six raids failed, but the seventh raid succeeded. An
innocent man was killed in this raid, eventually leading to war between Muhammad's Muslims
and Mecca. It was in Mecca that the Muslim movement also became a political party, a theme
central to Islamic philosophy.
For the next ten years, until Muhammad's death in 632 AD, he and his Muslim followers never
ceased fighting. Muhammad's army fought several key battles against Medina, finally
2
conquering the city in 630 AD. Muhammad led unprovoked attacks against other peoples as
well, including a Jewish settlement in Northwestern Arabia.
Shortly after his conquest of Mecca, Muhammad received Surah 9:29, which exhorted Muslims
to battle all non-Muslims, including Christians and Jews, until they submit to Islam. Obeying this
command to conquer, Muhammad marched his Muslim army against the Christian Byzantine
Empire, although the Byzantines had chosen not to resist. Muhammad became ill and died
shortly thereafter, allegedly poisoned. It is very obvious that Muhammad was not a man of
peace, nor did he preach religious tolerance and compassion, as does Christianity.
While it is in error to maintain as Muslims do, that Muhammad was history's greatest moral
example, and while many critics portray him as history's worst, Muhammad did have some
commendable qualities. Muhammad placed an emphasis on helping orphans and widows, and
there were occasions when he exhibited great mercy. He was an ardent monotheist, and despised
idolatry. He exhorted his followers to heed God's prophets, like Noah, Abraham, and Moses.
Yet Muslims tend to focus entirely upon the commendable qualities of their prophet, and to
completely ignore his less admirable traits and brutal misdeeds.
After leaving Mecca, Muhammad began robbing caravans entirely for profit As a result, greed
soon became one of the primary factors in persuading people to convert to Islam. Although
patiently enduring persecution in Mecca, Muhammad's attitude quickly changed when his
followers' numbers grew in Medina. Soon he would tolerate no criticism whatsoever.
Muhammad's violence was directed toward specific ethnic groups as well. Muhammad once
said to his followers, "I will expel the Jews and Christians from the Arabian Peninsula, and will
not leave anyone but Muslims." When they surrendered, Muhammad confined them in Medina.
There he cut off their heads, some 600 to 700 in all. Every male captive who had reached puberty
was executed. Muhammad divided the women, children and property among his men, keeping
one-fifth of the spoils for himself.
We may contrast Muhammad's behavior with the historical Jesus. Christians believe that Jesus
performed miracles, died on the cross and rose from the dead. Documented history confirms all
these beliefs. While Christians have nothing to fear from an examination of historical records,
history is a huge problem for Islam.
Islamic wars of imperialist conquest have been conducted for almost 1500 years, against
hundreds of nations, over millions of square miles ( significantly larger than the British Empire
at its peak ). Islam's lust for imperialist conquest stretches from southern France to the
Philippines, from Austria to Nigeria, and from Central Asia to New Guinea. This is the classic
definition of imperialism, "The policy and practice of seeking to dominate the economic and
political affairs of weaker nations" For Islam today, its objectives are more specific, having
become those to achieve total world dominance, and to eliminate Christianity entirely, for
Christian tolerance and compassion are the antitheses of militant Islam.
There are horrendous examples of Islamic intolerance for other religions. Perhaps its worst act in
modern times was the Armenian Genocide, extermination of an entire Christian society. This
3
was the Islamic Ottoman government's systematic extermination of 1.5 million Armenian
Christians, mostly Ottoman citizens living within the Islamic Ottoman Empire, and its successor
state, the Republic of Turkey. This genocide began in April 1915 during the First World War,
with the arrest and deportation of approximately 370 Armenian intellectuals and community
leaders, the majority of whom were subsequently murdered.
Armenian genocide was implemented in two phases, first the wholesale killing of able-bodied
males, followed by deportation of women, children, elderly and the infirm. They were driven on
a death march into the harsh Syrian desert, where they were denied food and water until they
perished. To this day, Turkey's Islamic government denies that any of this occurred.
Today, Islam is spreading rapidly through immigration and the misguided tolerance and
sympathy for alleged Muslim refugees from African and Middle East conflicts. Militant Muslims
have infiltrated the influx of refugees, and now pose a serious threat to domestic stability and
peace in western Christian nations.
Today, the "Islamic State of Iraq and Syria" ( ISIS ) , a Jihadist militant group that follows
fundamentalist Wahhabe doctrine of Sunni Islam, is murdering thousands of Christians in
western Iraq and Syria. It now boasts 30,000 fighters, and is believed to be active in 18 nations
around the world, including several in Africa and also the Philippines.
The high Muslim birthrate also threatens world peace. The average number of children per
Muslim family in Mideast countries is presently eight, while Iran's radical Islamic government
recently mandated eleven. In America, the Caucasian birthrate is now below the sustainable
minimum, less that two children per family. Obviously, Islam also seeks to overwhelm the West
with its burgeoning population.
Islam has also spread to Southeast Asian nations, like Indonesia and the Philippines. Indonesia
now contains the largest Muslim population of any country in the world. Its current Muslim
population is estimated to be 207 million persons, most of whom represent Sunni Islam.
Approximately 13-percent of the world's Muslims reside in Indonesia.
Today's 2-billion Muslims make up 28-percent of the world's population. With their intentionally
excessive birth rate, their numbers will exceed 50-percent of the world's population by the end of
the 21st Century. Islam is well on its way to achieve Muhammad's goal of world domination,
unfettered by Christian compassion and morality.

Update on Cookie and Three Law Suits


By Anna Von Reitz

Many thanks to all who have been sending love and prayers and donations for my Paralegal friend, Cookie. She was stricken with mysterious maladies that seemed to indicate heart failure and/or kidney failure and so, has had to undergo a lot of tests.

This evening she updated me. She had a severe misalignment in her spine between her shoulder blades (no doubt the result of years spent pouring over dusty books in dimly lit rooms, perched on tall stools) and that was causing a lot of problems because the nerves route through that area to the heart. So that is being adjusted by expert medical chiropractors and she is already experiencing significant relief.

She also has apparently developed a mid-life allergy to MSG which is being added to all processed food under the euphemism "natural preservatives". MSG makes food taste better, but it is also a poison capable of passing the brain-blood barrier, affecting short term memory, balance, and critical thinking skills. No more processed food is apparently the only cure.

All things taken together, the diagnosis could have been a lot worse and so could the treatment, though chiropractic care is not included in her major medical insurance and will continue to be an expense for some time to come.

The other news I wish to pass on tonight is that The Living Law Firm has prepared three major systemic claims in behalf of the American states and people.

I know this hasn't been easy to understand, but we were faced early on with a hard choice: we could take our slim resources--- a few dozen people working on their own shoestrings -- and try to put out 300 million brush fires, or we could concentrate on defining the problem(s) in a systemic way and bring action to correct the cause instead of the symptoms.

We took the latter course, at the cost of not being able to offer more direct and immediate help to individuals.

As the research has progressed it has become clear that the pattern of "expatriation" and "registration" and "bankruptcy" has been repeated several times and each time, private property has been removed under false presumptions into foreign jurisdictions and "pledged" by governmental services corporations as surety for their own debts.

The 1868 Expatriation Act was followed by the 14th Amendment presumption of Territorial United States Citizenship. The 1907 Expatriation Act resulted in Municipal United States Citizenship, which was followed by the Sheppard-Townsend Act registering babies. The 1934 Emergency Banking Act was followed by the creation of corporate Municipal Franchises--- another level of expatriation ---and the confiscation of gold.

At no time should any of this have affected American state nationals.

The financial crisis being addressed in each case was always due to the profligacy and mismanagement of the foreign Territorial United States and/or Municipal United States governments. In each case, only their actual citizens should have been impacted and in each case it was carefully stated that only "citizens" were subject.

But who is a "citizen" and with respect to which layer of government?

Prior to the so-called Civil War, people routinely served as State Citizens when they held office in their land jurisdiction state governments. They were also routinely referred to as "people of the United States". The semantic confusion and shuffle between "State Citizen" and "people of the United States" to "United States Citizen" was easy enough to foist off on the gullible and trusting public.

From that point on, the foreign Territorial United States (a British-backed democracy) and equally foreign Municipal United States (run by the Holy See as a Congressional oligarchy) worked as a Tag Team to secretively conscript and register American state nationals--- in effect, press-ganging them into the foreign international jurisdiction of the sea and promoting the assumption that they were operating as commercial "vessels" subject to both municipal and territorial law.

In fact, American state nationals operate as private, non-commercial "vessels" engaged in peaceful international trade. They are internationally "Protected Persons" and they are owed the specific protection of both the British Crown and the British Monarch.

By conscripting American state nationals under color of law and non-disclosure and coercing them to "accept" the status of "United States Citizen" the Territorial and Municipal United States could side-step the guarantees of the actual Constitution and seize upon the assets --- land and labor --- of the unsuspecting Americans who continued to think of the "federal government" as their own government.

We are presented with the spectacle of an entire people claiming to be "United States Citizens" as if they were born in Puerto Rico, unknowingly subjecting themselves to foreign Territorial and Municipal law, losing the protections of the actual Constitution, surrendering their claims to their land and their labor and accepting the debts of bankrupt foreign governments--- and for what supposed consideration? "Benefits" ---like "Social Security"---har! har! ---- that they paid for themselves.

Americans today give a far greater percentage of their assets and their labor to the "King" and the "Church" than any serf in the Dark Ages, and conditions are even worse throughout much of Europe, the former Commonwealth, India, Africa, South America, and Japan.

This outrageous crime against law, sense, and nature must come to an end---- and it must come systemically. The whole construct of the Great Fraud has to be flushed, and the spirit as well as the letter of the law established by our national trust indenture must be honored.

So--- in the next several weeks, three simple but profound legal actions will be engaged in behalf of the actual states and the living people. We will need your support in every way possible--- your prayers, your sharing of information, your determination to put an end to this fraud against America and against Americans, and yes, whatever money you can spare for our Living Law Firm.

Templar Treaties


By Anna Von Reitz

The Templars have had a "perpetual" treaty of "peace" and "friendship" and "amity" with us since 1794.  Let's see.....that's 223 years.  Are we being unreasonable in our expectation that everyone in your organization should know about this?  And act accordingly? 

We have a copy.  The Holy See has a copy.  Her Royal Majesty has a copy.  The Doge of Venice has a copy.  The Grimaldi Family has a copy.  The Prince of Monaco has a copy.  The Liechtensteiners have a copy..... the list goes on. 

Yet, despite this, members of the Temple have been rampaging around attacking us and pretending that we are someone --- or to be more exact --- some "thing" other than ourselves, and they have been using this preposterous presumption as an excuse to attack Treaty Partners to whom they owe perpetual amity and peace.  
Go figure.  

Now, some parties who assume they are being referenced in my note "To the Perpetrators" are bumping around claiming that the Queen is in danger.  What kind of nonsense is that?    

The Templars have not been honoring their treaty obligations in this country and have caused a lot of trouble instead.  The Bad Faith of members toward the American people has resulted in the Queen being in Breach of Trust. 

Put bluntly, you are the problem, not us. 

If you have ever seen a man trapped by a Chinese Knot, you know that the harder he struggles, the tighter it binds.  The more lies you tell, the harsher the condemnation.  The longer you refuse to abide by your treaty obligations, the worse your punishment will be.  

These Truths are part of the Universal Law set forth by our Creator and are no "laws" of men, therefore they are not subject to amendment or repeal, cannot be changed or reinterpreted or avoided.  And nobody judges you by giving Voice to the Universal Law, because in truth, you have condemned yourselves by what you have done in America on one hand, and by what you have failed to do on the other.

If the Queen is in trouble, it's because she is in gross Breach of Trust, and if she is in gross Breach of Trust, it is because the members of the Temple Bar have violated their treaty obligations owed to the Americans and have run amok and behaved as lawless brigands on our shores.   

The misrepresentations of those who have owed us Good Faith service have resulted in our states and people being repeatedly victimized as purported sureties in fraudulently created international bankruptcies. These frauds upon the states, the people, and also upon the probate and bankruptcy courts have not been created by the victims of these schemes who clearly did not benefit from them. 

All of this has been done by members of the Temple Bar and Inns of Court who have abused their positions of trust and violated the obligations of their long-standing treaties with us. 

When the Truth comes, what is false must pass away.  So it is written and so it must be.  

We are not causing any trouble by claiming the land and the labor that is ours by natural right, nor by refusing to be victimized again by those we depended on as Treaty Partners owing us "perpetual friendship".  


Rather, the trouble is the result of Shysters writing tickets on our credit without our knowledge or permission, and Trustees who have fallen so far down on the job that they must be halfway to China and somewhere near the center of the Earth by now.

Donald J. Trump and Jeff Sessions 3.0

May 25, 2017

President Donald J. Trump
1600 Pennsylvania Avenue
Washington, DC 20500

US Attorney General Jeffrey Sessions
950 Pennsylvania Avenue NW
Washington, DC 20530

Dear President Trump and Attorney General Sessions:
This may be helpful to resolve--- both in terms of coming to a peaceful resolution of our intergovernmental understandings, and in terms of getting the court system in this country working as it should again.  A country without justice and without an honest court system can never be great again, so let’s start there.
Back in 1994 this information passed over my desk and when a friend mentioned it to me this morning, I had reason to recall it and paw through the archives to find the 1994 US Government Manual, at page 390, where it says that the Attorney General is the permanent representative of INTERPOL, and the Secretary of Treasury is the alternate member.
Under Article 30 of the INTERPOL constitution, these individuals must expatriate their citizenship. They serve no allegiance to the United States of America.
So, Mr. Sessions, where is your FARA registration lodged?  And who are you working for now?  And under what authority? Presumably all the “state of state” Attorney General franchises are under the same authority?  And also have their Foreign Agents Registration on file somewhere? 
The people who live in this country and who are supposed to be protected by you, Mr. Sessions, really want to know the answers to these questions. 
Since 1999 when the bankruptcy of the United States of America settled, our actual land jurisdiction state governments operating as the Alaska State, California State, et alia, have been up and operating and have had our Notices and other paperwork on file with the World Court. 
By what stretch of the imagination, then, have District Courts and the State of State organizations continued to presume that we aren’t in charge of our own business, and that we don’t have a population of our own people who never actually left their lawful standing and nation-state despite self-interested fraud by FDR and others?
As Mr. Trump recently experienced in his head-butting with the Ninth Circuit, the court system here is highly politicized, but that is actually the least of its problems.
Every time a prosecutor or a litigant plaintiff brings a charge in one of these private corporate tribunals operated “as” courts they must post a Bid Bond, and they have to post it in Good Faith--- at least according to the Securities and Exchange Commission.  How is that possible, Mr. Sessions, when the majority of the cases involve parties who are not knowingly operating as corporations nor as corporate franchises?
Millions of people have been purposefully misidentified as Foreign Situs Trusts belonging to the Territorial United States and millions more have been similarly misidentified as ESTATE Trusts or Public Transmitting Utility franchise operators employed by the Municipal United States---- and this is all just self-interested fraud and bull poopy, to quote Ross Perot.
This whole situation is both illegal and unlawful, but most of all, it is immoral.
Last year, I sent out a simple Judicial Notice of Fraud and Violation and an Immediate Order to Cease and Desist, objecting to the practice of personage and barratry rampant in this country.  A copy of the two (2) page document is attached to this letter.  It forbids the practice of using GLOSSA, otherwise known as “Dog Latin” and “American Sign Language” to misrepresent the content of legal documents that otherwise appear to be written in English and what otherwise appears to be NAMES of living people: JOHN SILAS DOE and JOHN S. DOE for example, so as to confuse the real parties of interest in these cases and claims.   
The living people of the fifty (50) American states are depending on you, Mr. Sessions, to secure and respect the lawful operations of our state and county land jurisdiction courts and to ride herd on all the District Courts and Territorial State of State Courts to ensure their proper limits and operations.  The abuse of the 150 year-old Reconstruction Acts by the members of the American Bar Association and members of Congress must come to an end. 
There was in fact no “Civil War” ever declared by Congress and no Peace Treaty, either.  All that exists in the public record are declarations made by Presidents of commercial companies and corporations.  What we call the “American Civil War” was nothing but a private, illegal commercial mercenary action on our shores, and the guilty parties on both sides have milked it for all its worth. 
If you are serious about making “America Great Again” we need to remember what made it great in the first place, and it wasn’t because of any Nanny State or “Democracy” or because  a couple gigantic commercial corporations in the business of providing governmental services cheated and defrauded their employers--- the actual states and people.
Conscripting Americans into Territorial and Municipal jurisdictions without their knowing consent, foisting PERSONS merely named after them onto them to expedite the personage and barratry scheme, and then holding them liable for the actions and debts of various governmental services corporations is a form of criminality associated with the Dark Ages – feudalism--and it has no plausible excuse for being practiced on American state soil by a foreign municipal government that is supposed to be strictly limited in scope and location to the ten square miles of the District of Columbia.
Is it possible that these many thousands of “government” employees can’t read?  Or are we to understand that our employees are in rebellion against the actual Constitution and the Federal Territorial Constitution as well?  If so, Mr. Sessions, it is your duty to inform Interpol and order the arrest of all those in Washington DC who are involved in this criminal plot. 
As recent court actions have proven, there is no specific allowance for the Territorial United States to operate any “State of State” franchises on our soil.   In view of their participation in fraud schemes meant to disinherit the people of this country and unlawfully convert our assets under color of law, hosting these State of State franchises of the Territorial United States is obviously not working out for us.
In fact, we understand that the Territorial United States surreptitiously offered our land as security for the bankruptcy of The United States of America, Inc. circa 1907, and that when the bankruptcy of that entity ended circa 1953, the color-of-law land titles were not returned to the states and the people.  This is an egregious disservice that was never admitted, so it could never be straightened out.  Instead, the next generation of administrators rolled our land holdings into a giant trust and pretended that the original landlords were “absent” and their locations “unknown” and assigned themselves the position of presumed beneficiaries.
Do you know how bad this stinks?
We are here, right where we have been for generations.   I, for one, have requested an in-depth title search to land owed to my parents, grandparents, and great-grandparents all the way back to before the so-called “Civil War” and our family still holds title to it, though we are owed the land patent instead.
This kind of unlawful conversion of property and beneficial interest has been practiced against us--- your employers, the nice trusting people who ultimately pay for all these departments and personnel – since 1860.  It’s time for it to end and for the land and land assets to come home.  
Gentlemen, there is absolutely no provision for the Municipal United States to operate “STATE OF STATE” organizations on our soil and there never was.  This is a blatant and unwelcome trespass upon our sovereign authority that the Territorial United States is responsible for.
We are operating our actual unincorporated businesses dba Colorado State, Florida State, et alia, that are owed to the formerly bankrupted land jurisdiction states.   The World Court has been advised since 1998.  The BIS has been notified since 2000.  It should not be a surprise to anyone that we have pursued our inheritance and our rightful place.  
We are objecting to the presence of the Municipal United States on our shores outside the District of Columbia, and if you, Mr. Sessions, are indeed operating as the chief contact with Interpol, you should be fully informed and advised that: (1) our lawful states and state courts are operating and serving the people, not any PERSONS; (2) the corporate tribunals being run as District Courts are operating in blatant fraud and it is a disservice to everyone involved that they are; (3) we have suffered long-term, blatant, purposeful attacks in international jurisdiction infringing our copyrights, entangling us improperly in bankruptcies, stealing our identities, and have suffered press-ganging, involuntary conscription, kidnapping, identity theft, enslavement, and many, many other crimes committed against us by people taking their paychecks from our pockets.  
There is indeed “something rotten in Denmark” but it is not the people of this country and it is not their states of the Union at fault.  Instead, the fraud since 1860 is the unique problem of the Territorial United States and the Municipal United States and it amounts to a gross Breach of Trust and violation of commercial contract which has been given Notice and Due Process for over a decade.
We are not being represented properly so it is therefore entirely necessary and proper that we present ourselves and settle our own issues.
We request that you, Mr. Sessions, take action to clean up the court system in this country.  Make sure that District Courts and federated “State of State” courts are not presuming upon American state nationals who bear no responsibilities of citizenship and who are not naturally subject to the government of the Territorial United States nor the Municipal United States. 
The actual people belong with us and to our states, Mr. Sessions.  Only the “persons” --- most of which have been created under conditions of fraud and copyright infringement—belong to you. 
We request that you, Mr. President, lean on Mr. Sessions to make sure this gets done, and that all the district courts and federated “state of state” courts operating in this country are either shut down in the case of Municipal United States STATE OF STATE operations, or rigorously required to observe their proper limitations with respect to the actual states and people in the case of Territorial United States Courts.
As the Fiduciary acting in behalf of the actual land jurisdiction states and specifically in behalf of the Colorado State and the Nevada State, I request the immediate release and return of the Bundys who are peaceful Nevada State “vessels” engaged in international trade--- Protected Persons – who have been improperly arrested and detained under false presumptions of municipal citizenship by the STATE OF NEVADA and also request the release of the Colorado State Judges who have been similarly wrongfully attacked, mischaracterized and assaulted in violation of their Constitutional guarantees by the STATE OF COLORADO--- neither one of which--- STATE OF NEVADA or STATE OF COLORADO--- have any right to be on our soil in the first place.   
We have declared and are declaring to the entire Earth that our land is ours, and despite chicanery to the contrary, we are still here and still the landlords--- yes, we mean that literally.  Our land.  Not yours.  Not the Secondaries in a fraudulent bankruptcy.  Not the merely “presumed” Beneficiaries.  Read it. Hear it. Know it for sure.  The heirs of the American states known as American state nationals did not disappear and did not knowingly, willingly declaim their birthright inheritance, either.
You are operating the corporations that are supposed to be delivering the “essential governmental services” our states contracted to receive.  You are supposedly familiar with Article IV of the agreement allowing your organizations and employees known as “citizens” to be here on Nevada State and Colorado State soil.   There is no provision for these incorporated Municipal United States franchises dba STATE OF NEVADA and STATE OF COLORADO to be on our soil and there is certainly no excuse for the Territorial United States allowing these foreign entities to run roughshod over the actual states and people in violation of its own contract and obligation to our national trust.

                                                           Sincerely,


                                                     Judge Anna Maria Riezinger

INSTRUCTION ON THE FESTIVAL OF THE ASCENSION OF OUR LORD

Rev. Fr. Leonard Goffine's
The Church's Year

At the Introit the Church sings the words which were spoken by the angels to the apostles and disciples, after the Ascension of our Lord:
INTROIT Ye men of Galilee, why wonder you, looking up to heaven? allel.: He shall so come as you have seen him going up into heaven. Allel., allel., allel. (Acts I. 11.), Oh, clap your hands, all ye nations; shout unto God with the voice of joy. (Ps. XLVI. 2.) Glory be to the Father, etc.
COLLECT Grant, we beseech Thee, O Almighty God, that we who believe Thy only‑begotten Son, our Redeemer, to have this day ascended into the heavens, may ourselves also in, mind dwell amid heavenly things. Through the same etc.
LESSON (Acts I. 1-11.) The former treatise I made, O Theophilus, of all things which Jesus began to do and to teach , until the day on which, giving commandments by the Holy Ghost to the apostles ,whom he had chosen, he was taken up: to whom also he showed himself alive after his passion, by many proofs, for forty days appearing to them, and speaking of the kingdom of God. And eating together with them, he commanded them that they should not depart from Jerusalem, but should wait for the prom­ise of the Father, which you have heard (saith he) by my mouth: for John indeed baptized with water, but you shall be baptized with the Holy Ghost, not many days hence. They, therefore, who were come together, asked him, saying: Lord, wilt thou at this time restore the kingdom to Israel? But he said to diem: It is not for you to know the times or moments which the Father hath put in his own power; but you shall receive the power of the Holy Ghost coming upon you, and you shall be witnesses to me in Jerusalem and in all Judea, and Samaria, and even to the uttermost part of the earth. And when he had said these things, while they looked on, he was raised up; and a cloud received him out of their sight. And while they were beholding him going up to heaven, behold, two men stood by them in white garments, who also said: Ye men of Galilee, why stand yon looking up to heaven? This Jesus who is taken up from you into heaven, shall so come, as you have seen him going into heaven.
EXPLANATION This gospel of St. Luke addressed to Theophilus, a Christian of note in Antioch, contains an account of the life, sufferings, and death of Jesus up to the time of His ascension into heaven. The Evangelist con­tinues his account in the Acts of the apostles, in which he describes in simple words that which Jesus did during the forty days following His Resurrection, and the manner in which He ascended into heaven in the presence of His apostles. Rejoice that Christ today has entered into the glory gained by His sufferings and death, and pray: I rejoice, O King of heaven and earth, in the glory Thou bast this day attained in heaven. Sing to God, ye kingdoms of the earth: sing ye to the Lord: sing ye to God, who mounteth above the heaven of heavens to the east. Give ye glory to God for Israel, his magnificence and his power is in the clouds. God is wonderful in his saints, the God of Israel is he who will give power and strength to his people, blessed be God. (Ps.LXVII. 33‑36.)
GOSPEL (Mark. XVI. 14-20.) At that time, Jesus appeared to the eleven as they were at table: and he upbraided them with their incredulity and hardness of heart, because they did not believe them who had seen him after he was risen again. (And he said to them: Go ye into the whole world, and preach the gospel to every creature. He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved: but he that believeth not shall be condemned: And these signs shall follow them that believe. In my name they shall cast out devils: they shall speak with new tongues; they shall take up serpents: and if they shall drink any deadly thing,  it shall not hurt them: they shall lay their hands upon the sick; and they shall recover.) And the Lord Jesus after he had spoken to them, was taken up into heaven, and sitteth on the right hand of God. But they going forth preached everywhere, the Lord work­ing withal, and confirming the word with signs that followed.
The part of this gospel which is within the marks of parenthesis, is the gospel for the feast of St: Francis Xavier.
Why did Christ say to His apostles: Go ye into the whole world and preach the gospel to all creatures?
To show that no one is to assume the office of preach­ing, but must look for his mission from the lawful pastors of the Church. And when Christ sends His apostles into the whole worlds to all nations without exception, He shows His willingness to save all men. If the designs of God are not fulfilled, the blame is not to be attributed to God, but to man, who either does not accept the doctrine of the gospel, or accepting, does not live in accordance with it, or else renders himself by his obduracy in vice, unworthy of the gospel.
Is faith without good works sufficient for salvation?
No, faith that is not active in love, not fruitful in good works, and therefore not meritorious, (Gal. V. 6.) is not suf­ficient for salvation. "Such faith," says St. Anselm, "is not the faith of a Christian, but the faith of the devil." Only he who truly believes in Christ and His doctrine, and lives in accordance with it, will be saved.
Is ours then the true faith since all the faithful do not work miracles; as Christ has predicted?
St. Gregory very beautifully replies to this question: "Because the Redeemer said that true faith would be ac­companied by miracles, you must not think that you have not the faith, because these signs do not follow; these miracles had to be wrought in the beginning of the Church, because faith in her had to be increased by these visible signs of divine power." And even now when such signs are necessary for the propagation of the faith, and victory over unbelief, God gives His faithful power to work them.
Are miracles wrought now in the Catholic Church?
Yes, for there have been at all times saints in the Church, who, as seen from their lives, have wrought miracles, on account of their faith, which even the heretics cannot deny; for instance St. Francis Xavier, who in the sight of the heathens, raised several dead persons to life. In a spiritual manner all pious Catholics still work such miracles; for, as St. Chrysostom says, "they expel devils when they banish sin, which is worse than the devil; they speak new tongues when they converse no longer on vain and sinful things, but on those which are spiritual and heavenly." "They take up serpents," says St. Gregory, "when by zealous exhortations they lift others from the shame of vice, without being themselves poisoned; they drink deadly things without being hurt by them, when they hear improper conversation without being corrupted or led to evil; they lay their hands upon the sick and heal them, when they teach the ignorant, strengthen by their good example those who are wavering in virtue, keep the sinner from evil, and similar things." Strive to do this upon all occasions, O Christian, for God willingly gives you His grace and you will thus be of more use to yourself and others, and honor God more than by working the greatest miracles.
Where and how did Christ ascend into heaven?
From Mount Olivet where His sufferings began, by which we learn, that where our crosses and afflictions begin which we endure with patience and resignation, there begins our reward. Christ ascended into heaven by His own power, because He is God, and now in His glorified humanity He sits at the right hand of His Father, as our continual Mediator.
In whose presence did Christ ascend into heaven?
In the presence of His apostles, and many of His dis­ciples, whom He had previously blessed, (Luke XXIV. 51.) and who, as St. Leo says, derived consoling joy from His ascension. Rejoice, also, O Christian foul, for Christ has today opened heaven for you, and you may enter it, if you believe in Christ, and live in accordance with that faith. St. Augustine says: "Let us ascend in spirit with Christ, that when His day comes, we may follow with our body.
Yet you must know, beloved brethren, that not pride, nor avarice, nor impurity, nor any other vice ascends with Christ; for with the teacher of humility pride ascends not, nor with the author of goodness, malice, nor with the Son of the Virgin, impurity. Let us then ascend with Him by trampling upon our vices and evil inclinations, thus build­ing a ladder by which we can ascend; for we make a ladder of our sins to heaven when we tread them down in combating them:"
ASPIRATION O King of glory! O powerful Lord! who hast this day ascended victoriously, above all heaven, leave us not as poor orphans; but send us, from the Father, the Spirit of truth whom Thou hast promised. Alleluia.
Why is the paschal candle extinguished after the gospel on this day?
To signify that Christ, of whom the candle is a figure, has gone from His disciples.

INSTRUCTION ON MIRACLES

And these signs shall follow them that believe.(Mark XVI. 17.)
What is a miracle?
A miracle, as defined by St. Thomas of Aquin, is any­thing beyond the ordinary, fixed state of things that is done through God. Thus when the sun stands still in his course, when thousands are fed with five loaves and two small fishes, when by a word or simple touch the dead are raised to life, the blind see, and the deaf hear, these are things contrary to nature, and are miracles which can only be performed by God or those persons to whom God has given the power.
That God can work miracles, cannot be denied. God has made the laws of nature, and at any time it pleases Him, He can suddenly suspend them, and that God has at times done so, we have more solid and undeniable proofs, than we have for the most renowned and best authenticated facts of history, far more witnesses testify to miracles, the whole world has believed them, and been converted by them; more than eleven millions of martyrs have died to confirm and maintain their truth; no one gives up his life for lies and deceptions; the Jews and pagans have admitted them, but ascribed them to witchcraft and the power of demons rather than to God; by this they proved and acknowledged the truth of miracles, because in order to deny them, they were driven to false and absurd explanation of them.
Can men work miracles?
No; only God works miracles through man to whom He gives the power. The history of the Christian Church in all ages bears testimony, that men have wrought miracles in the name of Jesus, as, for example, the apostles and the saints.
Can miracles be worked by the relics of saints, pictures, &e.?
The Church, in the Council of Trent, solemnly declares, that we are never to believe that there is in any picture or relic any hidden power by which a miracle can, be worked, and that we are not to honor or ask any such thing of them. Therefore no miracle can ever be worked by them, but God can perform miracles through them, and He has done so, as the holy Scriptures and the history of the Church of Christ both prove. But when through certain pictures (usually called miraculous pictures) miracles do take place, that no deception may occur, the Church commands that such a picture shall not be exposed for the veneration of the faithful, until the truth of the miracles performed is by a rigorous examination established beyond doubt; she then causes such pictures to be respectfully preserved as monu­ments of the goodness and omnipotence of God.
Why are there not so many miracles in our ties as there were in the first days of the Church?
Because the Church is no longer in need of such extra­ordinary testimony to the truth of her teachings. Thus St. Augustine writes: "He who in the face of the conversion of the world to Christianity demands miracles, and strives to doubt those which have been wrought in favor of this most wonderful change, is himself an astonishing miracle of irrationality and stupidity;" and St. Chrysostom says: "The question is sometimes asked: How happens it there are not so many miracles now‑a‑days? The answer is, because the knowledge of Christ is propagated all over the earth, and the Church is like a tree which, having once taken deep root and grown to a certain height, no longer needs to be carefully watered and supported."

What Is the Name of the Crime? ---Unlawful Conversion


By Anna Von Reitz

Obviously, fraud.  That, surely. 

But there is so much more to what has been done to us by our "Public Servants".... conscription, inland piracy, racketeering, kidnapping, press-ganging, enslavement, false presumption, false arrests, false impersonation, deliberate mischaracterization, plundering, pillaging, unauthorized hypothecation of debt, conspiracy to defraud, conspiracy against The Constitution, invasion, trespassing, copyright infringement, trademark violations, identity theft, grand theft and larceny..... I could probably go on all night, but at the root of it---- besides constructive fraud in general, there is a nagging need to nail down a razor-sharp diagnosis of what has gone on here, and in the end, after several years of ruminating about this at odd hours, I believe that Congressman Louis T. McFadden nailed it back in 1934: unlawful conversation. 

Unlawful conversion of our identities and our assets has been the entire aim of the Territorial United States/Municipal United States Tag Team.  We've had the British Enemy pretending to be our friend on one side, and the out-of-control Vatican Thugs on the other, conspiring together against us and against virtually everyone else's lawful government, too, because the same evils have been visited on a many other countries including most of Europe, Australia, New Zealand, Japan, India, Canada, Mexico.... another list goes on.

Unlawful conversion of our Trade Names redefining them as Foreign Situs Trusts.
Unlawful conversion of our state national standing to that of mere "citizens".
Unlawful conversion of our land patents to titles held under color of law. 
Unlawful conversion of our private property to public assets.
Unlawful conversion of our government on the land to a government on the sea.
Unlawful conversion of the copyrights and trademarks we are owed.
Unlawful conversion of our private bank accounts to public "personal" accounts.
Unlawful conversion of our States to "States of States" and "STATES OF STATES".
Unlawful conversion of our public courts to private corporate tribunals.
Unlawful conversion of private civilian assets to public trust assets.
Unlawful conversion of American Common Law to English Common Law.
Unlawful conversion of public records to private registrations.
Unlawful conversion of our right to elect to mere voting privileges.

The sheer scale of this sly, secretive crime spree all across the globe is staggering, especially when one considers that it has all taken place under a banner of freedom and progress---- while in fact delivering a form of modern feudalism instead. 

I wonder how long they thought they'd get away with it?  And now that they are standing with their pants down around their ankles, I wonder how long they think they can still get away with it? 

How long before the police forces and military wake up and do their jobs and prosecute the actual criminals? 


How long before the government politicians responsible know for sure that they have been caught and have to correct, or none of us will have any reason to pay them for their "service"?

To the Perpetrators:


From Anna Von Reitz

The murder of this boy, Seth, has been your undoing.  You will fall and not rise again. What you have done and what you have followed, you have not known, for you have been blinded by greed and led astray by your lusts until you are nothing but an empty pit always desiring more.   So, go then to your Father, the Father of All Lies, and let him devour you, emptiness into emptiness and sin into sin. 

What is Jacob's sin, if not Samaria?  Do you not know that Samaria's plague is incurable?  So that all the Earth suffers for the lusts and sorcery of a prostitute? The Great Abomination that stands now in New York Harbor, offering liberty instead of freedom?  You know her all too well, but dare not name her.  Instead, you try to hide your deeds behind words, and when offered truth, you cling to lies.
