An in depth explanation of the games that have been played on the American sovereigns.

By Anna M von Reitz – Updated 14 July 2014
1 Nothing to discuss here, boys--- there are over 350 different meanings
2 ascribed legally to the four words "united states of america", and all of
3 the above fall into the pile. There is no use even discussing it unless you
4 know the context in which the words are being used. But, yes, the
5 "United States of America" IS a corporation --- a religious non-profit
6 chartered by the Roman Catholic Church no less---in Delaware. When
7 used in this context it may appear in all capital letters, which is one
8 means used to identify corporations. Also, you want to pay attention to
9 the word "the" and how it appears, as that often gives the best
10 indication of the nature of the entity being discussed.
11
12 There's a lot more where that came from. I have been working this
13 problem for 35 years, so anytime people need information about a topic,
14 let me know. I will either know the answer or someone else in my circle
15 of friends will have it written on their knuckles.
16
17 The whole topic you are discussing is crucial to understanding what we
18 are dealing with. So let's take a moment and deconstruct it some more---
19
20 There's the united States of America ---that the Republic, notice the
21 small "u" on united? That's the way the Founders designated it and the
22 way it appears on the original equity contract known as "The
23 Constitution for the united States of America" ---note the use of the
24 preposition "for" not "of" as well as the small "u" on "united"?
25
26 Then there is the "federal corporation" which is the business entity
27 responsible for providing the nineteen enumerated governmental
28 services that the original States contracted for. That has gone by
29 various names. The first unincorporated company formed by Ben
30 Franklin was simply called "The Company" or "The United States"
31 and it operated from 1754 to 1863 when it was bankrupted by
32 Lincoln. Please note that this was a commercial governmental services
33 company that also functioned as a trust management organization due
34 to the two-part nature of the original Constitution.
35
36 The Constitution is BOTH a national trust indenture (Preamble and Bill
37 of Rights) and a commercial services agreement (the nineteen
38 enumerated services the "federal" government was supposed to provide
39 in common for the States).
40
41 Then we went through bankruptcy reorganization euphemistically
42 called "reconstruction" after the Civil War and a new Trust
43 Management Organization and governmental services corporation was
44 organized which published its corporate articles as the "Constitution of
45 the United States of America"----note that "the" is not part of the name
46 of this document and that it is not capitalized like the original
47 Constitution, that the "u" in "United" is capitalized, and that it uses the
48 preposition "of" instead of the word "for"-----when you see any
49 differences like this in legal documents it indicates that it is a totally
50 different document. In this case, it is a document peculiar to that new
51 corporation that was formed in the District of Columbia calling itself
52 the "United States of America (Incorporated)".
53
54 This version functioned from 1871 to 1933 when it was bankrupted by
55 FDR. Again, we went through bankruptcy reorganization, only this
56 time it lasted eighty years from 1933 to 2013. During that time the
57 governmental services contract was fulfilled ---from 1944 onward---by
58 the UNITED NATIONS CORPORATION doing business as the
59 INTERNATIONAL MONETARY FUND doing business as the
60 UNITED STATES (INC.) Both the IMF and its UNITED STATES
61 subsidiary are chartered in France.
62
63 Since the bankruptcy of the United States of America, Inc. finally ended
64 the rats have set up a new FEDERAL RESERVE under UNITED
65 NATIONS corporation auspices to replace the old Federal Reserve
66 System and they are preparing to bankrupt the IMF subsidiary doing
67 business as the UNITED STATES.
68
69 Then the new "FEDERAL RESERVE" will step in and take over the
70 governmental services contract and the IMF version of "UNITED
71 STATES" will go into bankruptcy reorganization. It's a con game, in
72 other words, in which these two giant banking cartels BOTH now
73 operated by the UNITED NATIONS Corporation, abuse bankruptcy
74 protection in a methodical, cyclic way.
75
76 There are a lot of other games being played with semantic deceit based
77 on "similar names" but before we leave the topic of the name "United
78 States of America" ---- everyone should be aware that there are TWO
79 nations calling themselves "United States of America"---- there is The
80 United States of America ---composed of now-fifty (50) States of the
81 Union and otherwise known as The United States of America (Major),
82 and there is the United States of America (Minor) composed of the
83 Seven Insular States more commonly though of as federal territories
84 and possessions---Guam, Puerto Rico, the State of New Columbia (that
85 is, DC), American Samoa, et alia.
86
87 The United States of America (Major) is populated by American State
88 Citizens. The United States of America (Minor) is populated by US
89 citizens.
90
91 American State Citizens have natural and unalienable rights. US
92 citizens have only the "civil rights" that the US CONGRESS feels like
93 granting them.
94
95 Are you beginning to see the depth, breadth, and width of the gigantic
96 FRAUD that has been practiced against Americans and the reason why
97 you have been enslaved? How many times have you checked the box
98 ignorantly saying that yes, you are a "US citizen"???
99
100 Sure, share as far and wide as possible. The more people who know the
101 truth and have the detail, the better. Then the rats can't lead us around
102 by the nose and baffle us with bs.
103
104 That said, we are dealing with a nest of criminals. It started with the
105 banks and promptly infested both the lawyers and the politicians.
106
107 I think the ones most vulnerable to confrontation are the politicians and
108 the politicians can then be used to whip and beat both the lawyers and
109 the bankers, who have hitherto surreptitiously hidden behind their pals
110 in the various legislatures.
111
112 All the members of the State legislatures need to be forced to take their
113 Public Oath of Office and to swear that they will operate only within
114 that office for the term of their service. What they are doing now is
115 operating as officers of privately owned and operated corporations
116 merely calling themselves the "State of_______" (a franchise of the old
117 Federal Reserve corporation doing business as the United States of
118 America, Incorporated) or the "STATE OF_________" a franchise of
119 the International Monetary Fund doing business as the UNITED
120 STATES.......while pretending to be serving the public interest and
121 serving a public office. They aren't.
122
123 So start there. Go after the "State" Legislatures and demand to know
124 what kind of "state" they are running and whether they are occupying
125 public office exclusively, or if they are impersonating public officials
126 while acting in fact as officers of a franchise of a foreign, for-profit
127 governmental services corporation?
128
129 Let them have it. Full bore. Get people educated and go for it. These
130 sneaks have been lining their pockets with public resources for decades.
131
132 Oh, I don't care. This is nothing compared to what I've done to the rats
133 over the years. I haven't paid a penny of income tax in twenty
134 years. Have closed down foreclosures in thirteen states. Issued
135 protection orders to the Joint Chiefs. I don't think explaining the mis-
136 uses of the words "United States of America" is anything new or
137 worse....
138
139 Didn't see all this immediately.
140
141 Please see the last item in the "Answers" section of the attached Final
142 Judgment and Civil Orders document.
143
144 The Roman Catholic Church IS implicated in this mess up to its
145 eyeballs and nobody including the Pope is attempting to deny it. It was
146 the 1845 Treaty of Verona between the then-Pope and the British
147 Monarch agreeing to undermine the American government that they
148 were SUPPOSED to be Trustees for that began this whole mess.
149
150 It is important for everyone to understand that however inspired the
151 origins of the Church may be, the actual institution is full of human
152 faults and frailties and under constant and purposeful assault from the
153 Crown Temple. The Crown Temple worships Satan and one of its
154 avowed goals is to infiltrate the Church and commandeer it much as
155 "the United States of America (Minor)" has attempted to steal the
156 identity and commandeer the resources of The United States of America
157 (Major).
158
159 As we explain in the Final Judgment and Civil Orders, there are times
160 when undercover agents of the Crown Temple gain prominence in the
161 Church, which results in all sorts of evil and skullduggery being
162 committed "in the name of" the Church, much as so much evil, illicit
163 trading in arms, drugs, prostitutes, tobacco, etc. has been carried on by
164 the CIA "in the name of" America.
165
166 In approaching this current situation it is neither helpful nor
167 appropriate to speak in generalities of the "Church is bad" or
168 "America is good" kind----because we are now very thankful to the last
169 two Popes, Benedict and Francis, who have risked their lives and who
170 continue to risk their lives to try to correct the errors and deceit of
171 predecessors. In the same way, it is easily seen that much of what has
172 been done in the name of America in recent years has been thinly veiled
173 naked greed, self-interest, and carnality unleashed on the rest of the
174 world.
175
176 It would be easy to blame "the Church" for not recognizing the fraud
177 being promulgated in its name, but then, it is a rather recent
178 development that we have become aware of the fraud being practiced
179 against us and "in our name"----so instead of blaming, I suggest we
180 apply the "Goodwill Test" ---- when you see people of whatever race,
181 creed, political party, or other "group"---trying their best to achieve
182 justice and peace, just skip the labels and pay attention to what they do
183 and what they try to do, instead of being deceived by propaganda
184 devices designed to divide and conquer us.
185
186 Anna
187
188 I know "the" question to ask the "US MARSHALS"---- ask them in
189 what office they are acting?
190
191 Are they acting as "US MARSHALS" --- that is mercenaries of the IMF
192 doing business as the "UNITED STATES"--- a French commercial
193 corporation
194
195 Or as "US Marshals" --- that is, mercenaries of the FEDERAL
196 RESERVE dba THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA?
197
198 Or as "us marshals"---- constitutional officers employed to protect the
199 US Mail?
200
201 You might inform them that if they are operating on our soil in either of
202 the two corporate capacities they are acting illegally and that they don't
203 have permission to have egress on state soil when they are acting as
204 officers serving a private corporation----only when they are pursuing
205 their lawful duties as constitutionally sworn officers protecting the US
206 Mail.
207
208 So? Was Randy on "US"---that is, federal soil when they apprehended
209 him? Do the charges against him have anything to do with mail fraud,
210 etc.?
211
212 If not, then the "US Marshals"/ "US MARSHALS" are subject to
213 citizen’s arrest, and all you American State Citizens should be looking
214 up the exact words to use for a citizen's arrest in your state and then
215 next time one of these "US Marshals" leaves the courthouse or
216 wherever they are penned up, arrest one of them.
217
218 Seems simple enough to me. They are acting as outlaws on state soil,
219 impersonating constitutional officers when they are acting in private
220 capacity.....
221
222 "Impersonating an officer" is more than good grounds for a citizen's
223 arrest. Inform the local District Court that the only "federal officers"
224 who have free egress on state land are the "us marshals" when in
225 pursuit of their duty to protect the mail. When they are doing anything
226 else and particularly when they are acting as "officers" of corporate
227 entities---either the FEDERAL RESERVE doing business as THE
228 UNITED STATES OF AMERICA or the IMF doing business as the
229 UNITED STATES----either one----they have no law enforcement office
230 on state soil and when they arrest someone as they have arrested Randy,
231 they are guilty of kidnapping and false arrest.
232
233 Start holding their feet to the fire. Explain that they don't have the
234 powers they think they have. When they are acting as employees of
235 either THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, Inc. or the UNITED
236 STATES (INC.) they have all the "authority" of Ronald McDonald on
237 state soil. That is, they have no business using their uniforms and
238 badges and night sticks on American State soil when they are involved
239 in any activity EXCEPT guarding the mail. Period.
240
241 Give the rats a subpoena through the "US District Court" and a show
242 cause Order.
243
244 That should get them scurrying....
245
246 Actually, since Obama is an officer of a private corporation and does
247 not answer to the "US CONGRESS" in that capacity, what really needs
248 to be done to get rid of him is to bring suit against his actual employer---
249 - the IMF. That would get their attention. Running around begging the
250 members of Congress to act gets you nowhere because even if they
251 wanted to impeach him they gave away 97% of their power during the
252 Roosevelt Administration ----
253
254 WAIT A MINUTE, ARNIE!!! WE DO HAVE A
255 LAWFUL GOVERNMENT!!!!!
256
257 Our Forefathers vested the ENTIRE civil government
258 in each and every one of us! Each one of us has more
259 civil authority on the land than the entire "federal"
260 government!!!!!
261
262 They did this so that no foreign entity could claim that
263 they have established "exclusive legislative jurisdiction"
264 over Americans----which is required before any foreign
265 power can claim victory in a war and seize American
266 land!
267
268 DO NOT ever say or think that there is "no legitimate
269 government"-----we are our own legitimate
270 government! That is why we are each and every one of
271 us sovereign beings!
272
273 There is no way that any foreign power can claim
274 "victory" over us so long as a single American
275 breathes!
276
277 That is what YOU and everyone else here has to
278 understand! That is what makes America different and
279 exceptional. That is the only reason that we are not and
280 cannot be overtaken and defeated in the fake "war"
281 they have launched and pursued for the past hundred
282 years!
283
284 So long as one of us draws breath and remembers this
285 fact there is NO WAY for them to ever declare victory!
286
287
288 Stop pushing the red button, please. We are not "there" yet, and just
289 because some of these things such as the 2011 UCC filings are just now
290 coming into the purview of THIS particular group does NOT mean that
291 nothing has happened in the THREE years since then....
292
293 In fact, a lot has happened, and most of it doesn't have to do with
294 treason. Most of it has to do with REASON, which is needed now.
295
296 While you guys are running around going, "OMG! OMG! We've been
297 defrauded!" ---- You've been defrauded for 150 years, okay?
298
299 You were defrauded before you were born.
300
301 Just because you suddenly realized that you are being defrauded
302 changes nothing, except your awareness of the situation and, hopefully,
303 your ability to change the situation.
304
305 Others of us have been aware since 1995. We haven't been standing
306 still. We have gone to Rome and sued the Vatican for Breach of
307 Trust. We have brought law suit after law suit after law suit. We have
308 claimed back vacated offices. We have laid huge commercial liens
309 against the perpetrators. We have fought most of this fight
310 already. We have slogged through the entire commercial due process
311 regimen in all our behalfs. We have corresponded with bank officials,
312 foreign governments, state governments, law enforcement agencies, and
313 on and on.
314
315 Just because you are all just now waking up doesn't mean that all the
316 other Americans have been asleep!
317
318 And you would be very, very mistaken if you think that your brothers
319 and sisters have betrayed your interests and only looked after their own
320 rumps. Many of us have sacrificed our lives, our fortunes, and our
321 reputations on earth---served long prison terms, lost our homes, lost our
322 families----you name it---other Americans have already suffered it to
323 bring forward the information and progress that you are just becoming
324 aware of now.
325
326 Let's start with the 2011 UCC filings you guys just discovered -- those
327 are three years old. The creditors named have already booted up
328 another fiat monetary system and issued more "notes"--- "United States
329 Treasury Notes" ---- that is, they have offered the world the same old
330 crap and guess what? The rest of the world has already said, "No!"
331
332 That's what the BRIC's alliance is about. That is why other Americans
333 have already taken action to claim back the assets of the united States of
334 America, already taken action to prevent Obama's mercenary
335 commercial armies acting under the guise of being "federal agencies"
336 from unleashing violence on our shores, already taken action to build a
337 new, viable monetary system based on commodities---- you are YEARS
338 behind the curve and you don't have all the information you need to
339 rightly know how to interpret what you are seeing.
340
341 So, please, just stop and spend a few days to learn. You've been
342 defrauded all your lives. Another week won't change anything, but it
343 will change your ability to fight this battle and it will increase the
344 chances of a peaceful resolution.
345
346
347 I don't know what to do about Google. They are bullied by the "federal
348 corporation" and probably don't know what they are dealing with any
349 more than most people have known.
350
352 say things like that, it plays into their hands.
353
354 That is precisely what they want us to say and think, because then they
355 can claim that they have established "exclusive legislative jurisdiction"
356 over us and that they are the victors in their endless "war"-------!
357
358 Instead, we must remember the birthright we are heir to, and use that
359 to squelch the vermin.
360
361 As I said in my "big letters" message----the entire civil government of
362 this country is vested in each and every one of us. That's how we came
363 to be "sovereigns without subjects" in the first place. It is what makes
364 America unique throughout the world. We are under NO
365 OBLIGATION to EVER convene a "Congress" if we don't want to, but
366 we should realize by now that our failure to watch over our own affairs
367 and run our own government has resulted in this mess.
368
369 A lot of people go bonkers when they are first confronted with the
370 depth, breadth, and width of the fraud. They seize hold of one corner of
371 it and start ripping and tearing in an ignorant fashion and that does not
372 serve the cause. You see it all over---- there are thousands of people
373 now with one piece of the jigsaw puzzle or a few pieces, and they think
374 that that is all there is to it-----but no, this is a truly VAST mess that has
375 developed for over 150 years.
376
377 What needs to happen is for people to approach this coldly, humbly,
378 and methodically----everyone bringing their piece(s) of the puzzle
379 forward and working on it together.
380
381 Well, put yourself in their moccasins. Most of them were and are just as
382 ignorant as anyone else when they get into office. Only about 5-10% of
383 them ever realize the truth, and they manipulate the others. So here we
384 come and we tell them, hey, you are impersonating public officials! You
385 are crooks!
386
387 So far as they know, they ran for a public office and they won fair and
388 square and they don't know what you are talking about. More than
389 that, they don't WANT to know what you are talking about, because
390 that puts them in line for a gray-striped suit or a gibbet. It scares them
391 silly.
392
393 That is why forgiveness is key to this--- we tell them, we forgive them,
394 we acknowledge that this is a rotten situation all around, and we offer to
395 work with them to restore a lawful government. We bring forward
396 what their limitations and responsibilities really are. We insist that our
397 rights and contracts be respected. We press for our material interests
398 and those of our states and brethren. We insist that they take a proper
399 oath of public office. And we plod forward and we don't give up.
400
401 That's been my modus operandi for three decades. Just get up every
402 day and teach one more person.....contact one more policeman.....write
403 one more letter.....give one more radio interview.....file one more law
404 suit....issue one more subpoena.....
405
406 The Big Secret about the Bar Association is simple.
407
408 In 1845 the then-Pope and the British Monarch (both of whom were
409 honor-bound to act as Trustees for The United States Trust and both of
410 whom acted gross in Breach of Trust) agreed that the American
411 Experiment was not working. The whole idea of self-rule was
412 antithetical to the idea of Divine Right of Kings and Papal
413 Supremacy. So, they signed the secret Treaty of Verona and agreed to
414 undermine the American government.
415
416 The British Monarch issued Letters of Marque and Reprisal to the
417 British Crown Commercial Company which controls the bankers and
418 the lawyers, and issued licenses to the lawyers to act as privateers. That
419 is why the Bar Association requires "licenses". Any time you see the
420 word "license" it means that someone in a position of rulership is giving
421 someone else (the licensee) permission to do something that is otherwise
422 ILLEGAL. In this case, the King gave the members of the Bar
423 Association permission to act as privateers against American
424 "commercial vessels".
425
426 They couch all this in sea-going terms, because the jurisdiction where
427 they attack us is international admiralty and maritime commercial
428 law.
429
430 There are three "jurisdictions" defined by the Global Estate Trust
431 established by the Roman Catholic Church circa 1450 AD----- air, land
432 and sea. Each jurisdiction has its own law forms and natural venue and
433 law forms. The air jurisdiction is global in nature and functions under
434 canon law. The sea jurisdiction is international in nature and functions
435 under admiralty law. The land jurisdiction is national in nature and
436 functions under the law of the land. We are naturally owed the law of
437 the land, but these vermin have connived to "redefine" us as
438 commercial vessels and so, enabled themselves to attack our estates in
439 the unnatural jurisdiction of international admiralty.
440
441 Our problem is that the lawyers and bankers contrived to usurp onto
442 the land and to "set aside" the law of the land by PRESUMING that we
443 were "missing, presumed dead" and that our ESTATES were
444 commercial vessels subject to maritime salvage liens..... using all this
445 fanciful "reasoning" they developed a highly efficient fraud machine
446 which they have wielded in international jurisdictions to rob, defraud,
447 falsely arrest, conscript, and otherwise abuse the innocent Americans
448 who respected these rotters as "men of law" when in fact they have been
449 operating as robbers and racketeers and extortion artists.
450
451 All these DEFENDANTS you see in court cases? None of them are the
452 living men or women of the same or similar name. They are all ----
453 without exception----"corporate administrative franchises" of either the
454 UNITED STATES or THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA
455 corporations that are merely named after the living victims.
456
457 Listen up and learn fast----
458
459 The living man or woman is either described in law or denoted using all
460 small letters for their name---- like this: "john quincy adams" or
461 "john-quincy:adams" or "John Quincy of the House Adams".
462
463 The foreign situs trusts set up by agents of the old Federal Reserve
464 System were all named using upper and lower case names like
465 this: "John Quincy Adams".
466
467 The Roman Inferior ESTATE trusts set up by the UNITED STATES
468 were all named using all capital letters like this: "JOHN QUINCY
469 ADAMS"
470
471 And the public utilities that they are setting up now in the next step of
472 their fraud scheme are all named like this: "JOHN Q. ADAMS".
473
474 The instant you see anything addressed to "JOHN Q. ADAMS" you
475 want to write back and protest the new "name"----which is not your
476 name in any case, but which you must protest in order to keep them
477 from "rolling over" your ESTATE into this new "commercial vessel"
478 and claiming that you have willingly contracted with them.
479
480 Once again, it is fraud all based on "similar names" and semantic deceit
481 and abuse of trust.
482
483 Start taking it to the attorneys. Write to your local Judicial
484 Councils. Beard the President of the local Bar Association. Nab
485 individual attorneys. Write them letters. Inform them that as of
486 September 1, 2013, they are ALL 100% commercially and individually
487 liable for their acts of criminality, omission, and fraud. That is one of
488 the effects of Pope Francis' First Apostolic Letter, which rewrote the
489 international criminal code.
490
491 In other words--- tell the lawyers that their "licenses" are no good
492 anymore and won't protect them when they act as pirates and
493 privateers against the unsuspecting and innocent people who have been
494 their prey for 100 years. The game is up. And now the hunters become
495 the hunted....
496
497 That 2011 UCC filing? Well, I have pursued it all on down the pike and
498 have reclaimed control of my own ESTATE and filed commercial liens
499 against the UNITED NATIONS and the IMF and the UNITED
500 STATES in behalf of the States of America and me, the living
501 woman. Then I have made an Irrevocable Will granting an equal
502 interest in the claim to all Americans. So both the States and the people
503 inhabiting the States now have a viable and timely commercial affidavit
504 standing for their interests.
505
506 The so-called "Republic for the United States of America" is just
507 another private club claiming to "represent" us and resisting the
508 foundational premise and requirement of the actual Republic that we
509 each independently present ourselves.
510
511 Speaking for myself, now and forever, I have had enough of being
512 "represented" by all those who have been elected to public offices they
513 haven't entered or honored, and I deny any ability of the volunteer
514 members of the "Republic for the United States of America" to
515 represent me, either.
516
517 All these "representative bodies" seek to mislead people into thinking
518 that these groups are the legitimate government, which implies that the
519 rest of us are not the legitimate government. In fact, we are each and
520 every one of us the only government and always have been. Delegating
521 our authority via elections was only a method used to expedite
522 administration of government services---nothing more or less.
523
524 This game of "representing" people has become a means of theft,
525 corruption and deceit. We must recognize that "representative
526 government" is at fault for this present circumstance and that those
527 elected to "represent" us have misrepresented us and lined their
528 pockets and spilled our blood. We must further recognize that human
529 nature being what it is, this is the predictable outcome of indulging in
530 fantasies.
531
532 To the extent that we delegate power to any other agent or agency from
533 now on, it must be a conscious, official, individual act not subject to the
534 vagueries of elections, Diebold machines, or "trust". We must each
535 officially and individually choose individuals if we want them to carry
536 our proxy and we must saddle them with exact instructions and
537 fiduciary accountability if we wish to continue the device of
538 representative government at all.
539
540 Mark Gardner, please forward my objection to the Republic for the
541 United States of America leadership. They have no standing except the
542 same individual standing that we all possess. Their pretensions
543 otherwise are unseemly and offensive, and so are the underlying
544 assumptions that they proceed upon. They believe, apparently, that
545 when they all get together and decide what should happen to or for the
546 rest of us that we are under obligation to honor their will instead of our
547 own. They conceive of the whole being greater than the individuals
548 making up the whole, which is a patent error of logic amounting to
549 mental illness.
550
551 Equal means equal.
552
553 Collective representation is akin to collective guilt---impossibility. There
554 is no such thing as "collective guilt". There is only the guilt of
555 individuals collected together. In the same way there is no such thing as
556 "representative government" and never has been. There have only
557 been groups of individual people pretending to represent others who
558 have not presented themselves. This "representation by omission" is
559 intrinsically fraudulent and open to abuse.
560
561 We must face the facts and our own responsibility without recourse to
562 yet another private club claiming to represent everyone. It doesn't
563 work. It never has. And making that mistake is how our country got
564 into this mess in the first place.
