Instead of restoring and recognizing the actual civil government owed to this country after the so-called Civil War (which was never declared and never ended by a peace treaty and therefore just an illegal commercial mercenary action on our shores) the generals (Grant, Sherman, et alia.) took over, conveniently pretending that the Municipal Government of Washington, DC, was the civil government they were answerable to under the actual Constitution. (It wasn't.)
This set up the "US Congress" --- operating as the Board of Directors of a commercial corporation and as the plenary oligarchs in charge of the Municipality of Washington, DC--- as the rulers of their own little kingdom, the Municipal United States. You know this organization as the STATES OF STATES, like the STATE OF OREGON and STATE OF NEVADA that have viciously prosecuted the Bundys, the Hammonds, and others.
And it also left the Generals --- operating as the Board of Directors of another corporation -- as the military dictators in charge of the Territorial United States. This originally meant the District of Columbia and the Insular States like Guam and Puerto Rico and American Samoa.....but they quickly established "State of State" franchises --- which they called "States in the Territorial System". Fake States.
