The Constitution

By Anna Von Reitz

There are a number of questions that must be asked--- and answered--- by each one of us.  Before asking the first and most fundamental question and not inviting anyone to blurt out any answers at this point, I want to make my own position clear.
I do not now and have never advocated any act of violence, insurrection, or treason against the Constitution.
I view the actual Constitution as a flawed contract, but a contract that provides us with protections and guarantees we would not have otherwise.  Those protections and guarantees are supremely valuable once we place ourselves in a position wherein we can exercise them.
So let’s begin with what the actual Constitution is--- and let’s make it clear that when I say “The” Constitution or use the singular form of the word, I am talking about the real American deal ---and when I use the plural form of the word, I am talking about constitutions in general as a class of legal instruments.  
All constitutions, then, are debt agreements--- and so is ours.
These debt agreements are generally divided into two classes--- equity constitutions and service constitutions, and in some cases, like ours----both equity and service are involved in the contract itself.
The equity is in the nineteen rights known as “powers” which the states delegated to the federal government.  The debt is owed to the federal government for performing the stipulated services and accepting the associated liabilities of the states, which would otherwise have to provide these services.
The parties to this odd agreement are not our actual land jurisdiction states, but corporations they set up to act for them in the international jurisdiction of the sea. These are known as “states of states”, such as the State of Vermont; thus you will see that the “States of America” are mutually and collectively a party to The Constitution for the united States of America, and the word “united” is merely an adjective describing the fact that they are acting in common. 
So the states “united” acting through commercial companies known as “states of states” made an agreement with another entity, whose identity is purposefully obscured: the newly created “United States”.   Unknown to the public then and to most Americans still, this was the United States Trading Company, which was formed from the old British colonial investment companies--- the Virginia Company, the New England Company, and others. 
Our fledgling union of states contracted away nineteen of their duties ---and the related rights--- to a British-owned and operated commercial company.  They could hardly tell the rest of the people that after eight long years of war, they were getting back into bed with the British king and giving up a large portion of all that they had won including control of American commerce, American treaty-making, American trade policy, American defense capability, and much more.
Our states were thus effectively controlled by the British king and emasculated, indeed, castrated in international jurisdiction, even while our country was being born.  By controlling our international defense forces, our foreign policy, our commerce, our currency, and our trade policies, the British king could do exactly what subsequent Monarchs have done---- use and abuse our resources, use our men and boys as gun fodder in wars for profit, use our women as factory and agricultural slaves, devalue our currency, and control our votes in every international assembly. 
From the Founding Fathers’ side of it, their deal probably saved more than half the loaf and forestalled yet another war with England.  The crux of the matter was that the Americans had no Navy to protect shipment of their cotton, tobacco, ore, timber, wheat and other raw materials to Europe and the British stood at the dawn of the Industrial Revolution, starving for those commodities.  Our lack of a navy to protect our commercial shipping and Britain’s lack of raw materials were the driving forces behind the adoption of The Constitution.
It was a gross sacrifice of power, autonomy, and wealth on our part and a liability laced with rich benefits for the British king and the colonial investment groups--- which included Americans, like George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Ben Franklin, and others you might know---on the other.
That said, and the motives of the Constitutional Convention fully exposed, the participants did manage to save the entire land jurisdiction and also a very substantial portion of undelegated powers in the international jurisdiction of the sea for future generations. They chained the British king to an extent by setting limits on what we have fallaciously called the “federal government”, and by securing guarantees and obligations, including the obligation of the British Monarch to act as the international trustee of Americans on the High Seas and Navigable Inland Waterways.  
The Constitution was executed by a group of Americans calling themselves “We, the People”.  To grasp what this implies requires us to go back over two hundred years and learn some things we are never taught in school. 
The word “people” means “militia” in Hebrew. 
When Joshua conquered Canaan he led his “people” in battle----he was leading his “militia”.   Our Forefathers knew this, and so, when they said, “We, the People” they knew that it meant “We, the Militia”---an important point that tends to be lost on us today.
Unlike an army, a militia has civilian officers.  Also unlike an army, membership in a militia is a birthright.  
You are born as a member of a state militia.  
You will also notice that the word “People” in “We, the People” is capitalized.
In contract law, capitalizing a word indicates a position of servitude or inferior political status. 
The men signing the Constitution were functioning as Fiduciary Deputies acting in behalf of their states, and thus were both “people”--- that is, members of their respective state militias, and, at the same time, public servants.  That’s why in referring to themselves they used the capital “P” on “People”.  Yes, they were members of the American Militia, but they were acting in a servile capacity while conducting the public’s business.
So what “We, the People” communicates is really quite different from what everyone assumes.  Unless you are claiming to be a member of a state militia serving as a business agent or fiduciary, you really shouldn’t be ramming around using “We, the People” to describe yourselves.
All that said, all the lies and self-interest and double-dealing and double-speak revealed, if we sort ourselves out and assert our proper political status, The Constitution offers us a bulwark against tyranny even today and we would be foolish to cast it aside or undermine it in any way.
Without the Constitution, we would be facing a most ruthless, powerful, and immoral adversary: a desperate rogue international commercial conglomerate which is highly motivated to murder its Priority Creditors----us, in other words.  
If we give the Federal Government an excuse to kill us by operating outside The Constitution they will profit five different ways:
1. First, they won’t have to pay us back what they already owe us----which is many, many trillions of dollars.   
2. Second, they will collect on million dollar – often multi-million dollar life insurance policies-- they’ve placed on each one of us, naming their own precious corporation as the beneficiary.
3. Third, they will seize and profit from all the “abandoned property” that would result from a Civil War.
4. Fourth, they will avoid paying the retirement benefits they owe to millions of Baby Boomers.
5. Fifth, they will charge the survivors for the “service” of killing us.
They’ve been trying for several years to get some kind of conflict going.  They’ve tried race hatred, religious hatred, sovereign citizen phobias and false flags--- all without success.  They would like nothing better than to have us start something for them.
The one thing standing in their way is the Constitution.
That is why any reckless talk against the Constitution or actions undermining the Constitution plays into the hands of those who have defrauded and misused us for so long and who in fact owe us so much. 
In my opinion, whatever fault there may be in the Constitution, it is subject to far gentler and more intelligent and certain means of reform than that provided by any sort of insurrection.
The first question then, that each of us must answer is----do we support and defend the Constitution, and proceed within its established framework to restore a fully functioning American government, or do we, as some have suggested--- throw the Constitution out with the bathwater and tread the same bloody road our forefathers were forced to endure for eight long years?
My vote is to support and defend the Constitution, while seeking its full enforcement and eventual reform, but there are voices raised among us who would have us abandon the necessities of obeying The Constitution.  These voices appeal to our egos and our anger.  They preach their own new gospel and they say that the people can do anything they wish to do, change anything they want to change, simply by taking a vote and a show of hands---- even such a sloppy ad hoc show of hands as you can get on a teleconference call.  This, we are told, is sufficient to set new national frameworks in place. 
I must ask of which nation, because it certainly isn’t mine.
No need, they tell us, to build an actual functioning restored government for the organic states.  No need to consider the tens of millions of Americans who have no inkling of what we are discussing, who are not participating, and who have just as much right to know and to take action in the own behalf as we do.  No responsibility to conduct honest elections.  No need to honor anything from the past. No need for Due Process.  No need to respect the requirements of The Constitution.  No need for the Rule of Law.  Everything, they say, is just whatever we say it is. 
No doubt that these same people believe that we have rights without responsibilities, and protections without duties, and can rule without obligation to anything or anyone but ourselves.  They are, mostly without knowing it, preaching anarchy and insurrection and the destruction of the union of states--- not restoration and empowerment of the actual counties and states, not the resumption of effective Checks and Balances.
To me, the American Government is like a magnificent V8 engine that is presently running on only two cylinders.  I view it as our job to restore it and get it running right.  It requires us to be good mechanics, know our job, and use the right tools.  And we have inherited all the necessary tools.
Just as it would be foolhardy to try to fix a gas engine without understanding its parts and how it works, we cannot restore our rightful government without understanding its parts and how it works, yet the Pied Pipers among us want us to believe that no such hard work on our parts is required. 
I have the unenviable and unpopular duty of telling everyone that a lot of hard work, soul-searching, and education is necessary, that you can’t just hand-wave your way to a fully functioning American Republic after 150 years of fraud and neglect.  It’s going to take a lot of effort by a lot of people to restore America, and if we don’t do it right, there is the very real danger that our remaining two cylinders will blow up in our faces.
The American Government --- as opposed to the US Government --- is set in a much larger framework than just the structures and provisions established by The Constitution.  Remember that The Constitution deals only with the set up and running of the United States---- a corporation responsible for providing nineteen delegated services.  Important as that chunk out of our loaf is, it says nothing about our land jurisdiction and says nothing much about our retained non-delegated powers in the international jurisdiction of the sea, beyond the bald statement provided by Article X.
The Constitution tells us how the delegated services are to be provided and organized and monitored and paid for and how the “Federal Government” is to be limited and all that it is obligated to be and do--- and says nary a word about our own state and county governments ruling the land jurisdiction, nary a word about the exercise of the non-delegated powers retained in the international jurisdiction of the sea by our union of states.  
Why is that?  It’s because those topics are simply not the subject matter of The Constitution. 
The Constitution is all about our deal with King George and who gets the juicy government services contracts pertaining to that agreement and who controls what aspects of international affairs, what the states are owed, and what they pay in return.
Why, then, would The Constitution talk about our own national state governments operating the land jurisdiction of this country?  Or even about the undelegated powers in international jurisdiction retained by the people and the states under Article X? 
It wouldn’t and it didn’t. 
Generations of Americans have scoured The Constitution looking for answers how to fix our broken government, but that is like reading a book about Barn Building, when what we really need to know is How to Raise Cows.  The subjects are somewhat related, but only obliquely. Instructions for building hay mows and stanchions and waste gutters give information by inference, but don’t directly instruct us in what we need to know.
So in Article IV, The Constitution defines the evils of Bills of Attainder and forbids them, and in Amendment VII makes it clear that the American people are owed Common Law Courts, and in Article X it mentions that the states retained undelegated powers not granted to the new United States government, but doesn’t tell us how to object to Bills of Attainder, or which kind of “Common Law” Americans are owed, or give us a list of the powers that the states and people retained.
So far as the writers of The Constitution were concerned it was assumed and we were expected to know all that for ourselves—but somewhere in the mass confusion, deceit, and fraud of the Civil War and the Reconstruction Acts---- we forgot.  
We forgot who we are, what our states are, what their jurisdiction is, how their powers are exercised, how they are meant to operate, and how to exercise the power of checks and balances.  And it’s the same way with our counties.  We forgot that the counties are the domain of the people and that the counties in turn control the states. 
Instead, the self-interested vermin in DC contrived to turn everything around and upside down, to usurp upon our lawful counties and states and replace them via fraud and deceit with corporate franchises willing to do anything and everything their parent corporations in the District of Columbia demand.  They even contrived to mischaracterize us and our political status, to demean and defraud us by the use and abuse of unilateral and undisclosed contracts to entrap, ensnare, and enclose upon the very people these monsters are hired and paid to protect.
So here we are in 2017, finally dispensing with the fog and corruption and destruction of the Civil War, finally getting rid of the carpetbaggers, and working to see our rightful government restored. 
Let it be noted that the Missing Pieces are all on our side. 
The US Government created by The Constitution is corrupt and arrogant and lawless after 150 years of running wild, but it is still kicking.  It’s the American Government that is MIA. 
It’s the actual American states that no longer answer roll call and act to prevent federal usurpation of their power.  It’s the actual American counties that no longer lawfully assemble and do the job of directing the states.  It’s our government that is on the ropes, firing on only two cylinders----and it’s because our counties and states have been enfranchised and unlawfully converted by the so-called “federal government” into mere franchises of their own commercial corporations that Checks and Balances no longer work to prevent federal overreach, usurpation, and oppression. 
It is because we have ignorantly allowed ourselves to be called “citizens of the United States” and allowed our political status to be misrepresented and mischaracterized, too, that we are oppressed and abused and presumed upon by these foreign interlopers.
If we are to restore our rightful government and learn to use the power of The Constitution we are owed, we must first restore and hone the American Government--- the lawful, unincorporated counties and states of the land jurisdiction, and restore ourselves as the people of our respective fifty nation-states. 
The key is in our hands.  It is up to us to turn it in the lock.

  1. Thank you, Anna ... perfectly and succinctly explained. I am finally beginning to understand what you have been smacking us in the face with for all these many months ... now to access the lock!

  2. Excellent strategy .
    Know your foudation, capabilities and limitations , exercise them like your 2nd ammendment carry, 1st speak up if it's true thair is no crime.

  3. To: Judge Anna von Reitz

    I have great admiration for your work and writings. May you continue to inspire Americans to their true history and legal system.

    The history and law, so diligently reported in your work are now legal history. This history is vital for our understanding of where we are and where we might wish to go. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.

    It is time to move beyond the history into a new era of legal understanding. There is very vital work to be done to improve, but it is not by fixing, repairing, or rebuilding the legal systems of our history.

    The path ahead, as I see it, is to embrace a new system, much simpler to understand, much simpler to defend, and much simpler to administrate. It is the system of Natural Law as declared and described by Cindy K Currier, daughter of earth.

    Law of the land handbook
    YouTube Rise Together

    Natural law does not require, or presently recognize, corporate establishment-standing top-down systems of federal, state, county, and city governments.

    This is because:
    Every human is an infinite being.
    Every human is protected.
    Every human has infinite value.
    Every human has infinite discernment.
    Every human has infinite command.
    And….so it is.
    Universal Martial Law—Public Order #18: Prosperity Initiation Orders
    And….so it is.

    Natural law is a bottom up system starting with any small group of human beings, motivated to adjust to realities of an issue. The process is always powered from bottom up. It is according to the groups will, scope, and perceived importance of issue.

    Real solutions to America's issues are found using Natural Law. We must not digress back to the self interest, lies, confusion, duplicity, and fraud of the past. We must move forward clearing a path, simple and clearly defined, within the capability of all Americans to navigate and benefit.

    I accept Cindy Currier's administration of the Court of Ages of Natural Law and all current judicial orders. I accept Natural Law as outlined. By doing this, solutions exist now, not more confusion, unnecessary work, and hardship.

    All corporate governments are disbanded and their assets returned to the people. Trump, simply, has not gotten the memo yet, or more accurately, is in complete denial. The entire federal banking system is disbanded. The IRS, Federal Reserve, etc. , simply has not gotten the memo yet, or more accurately, are in complete denial.

    High government officials are already under warrant to testify and explain their relationship to high crimes against humanity.

    Pedophile arrest plea:

    So there have been no arrests and trials. So what is new? There haven't been any arrests or trials for 150 years.

    America, simply, is still sleeping. This doesn't mean that those awake cannot proceed at whatever pace is practical confronting a sleeping populous. Sleeping America will awake to a clearly defined choice, already a foundation, and outline for action in place.

    Simple implementation of the prosperity package, Public order #18, makes all Americans economically independent of their masters for necessities. Trump and his IRS buddies can continue to play-act government as long as they wish. They, simply, have no authority other than that given to them by the ignorance and complacency of victims. That is all the authority they have ever had. I simply choose not to waste any more energy kicking a dying legal/governmental establishment.

    Your work is vital in educating victims of their exploitation. Natural Law simply protects and gives victims an alternative to their victimization.

    Anyone, not wishing to be victim, can choose not to be, under Natural Law, by simple verbal declaration, any place and anywhere, and can choose to be left alone at any time. That's freedom. And so it is.

    Isn't that what this is all about?

  4. Thanks Anna! Now the obvious question is where & how to begin? From my recent email to you, you realize, at least here in Montana, I (we) are working to restore a state-wide common law grand jury to be called Montana Common Law Grand Jury of the Several Counties - abreviation to be MtCLGJSC. I plan on making some noise, calling for indictments to, as yet undisclosed corrupt judges & prosecutors, all woking in collusion with each other, totally in disregard of our nation-wide Constitution. They passed a law in 1972 claiming only a judge or prosecutor may call for a grand jury investigation. I am saying, according to our Constitution's XIV Amendment: No State shall
    make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges
    or immunities....... and Article VI, Clause II the Supremacy Clause, This Constitution, and the Laws of the United States which shall be made in Pursuance thereof; and all Treaties made, or
    which shall be made, under the Authority of the United States, shall be the supreme Law of the Land; and the Judges in every State shall be bound thereby, any Thing in the Constitution or Laws of any State to the Contrary notwithstanding. In plain language, no State may indiscriminately change or take away any rights granted to us by our United States Constitution.
    And all this is backed up by Marbury vs Madison and it has never been overturned.
    “All laws which are repugnant to the Constitution are null and void.” (Marbury vs.Madison, 1803.)

  5. Franklin told a lady concererning the constitution that the people had been given a free republic if they could keep it. Huge learning curve and that part keeping it has only recently been on the upswing. I think too that the machine is not itself bad, unusable or can not work properly yet like any machine with corroded parts, worn out or damaged, those things must be restored. Once it is working again, already it is made to work toward a better system yet has never been really used. Tossing out a Cadillac that is still good cause someone painted it up silly, let chickens roost in it and let the tires go flat is a waste when with the proper care the machine could run and be useful for its purpose perhaps carrying its passengers to the next step in the journey. Care is important and sure glad that Anna cares and gives so much toward our common good and learning sorely needed and I am sure devoured by the many starving for just such learning.
