If You Understand Nothing Else, Ever --- Understand This

By Anna Von Reitz

Unincorporated = Sovereign.

Unincorporated = Sovereign.

Unincorporated = Sovereign.

Here are the niceties:  a man is not a name.  A name is a "person". 

A man is naturally unincorporated and sovereign in nature. He does not depend on recognition or written charters or agreements for his existence. He doesn't even have a name when he starts out, and when he acquires a name after being born, that name is "corporate" but not "incorporated".

A Given Name is a Trade Name operating within the international land jurisdiction. "John Mark Doe" is a person that belongs to one of the people.  It is a possession or gift given to us by our parents, just like a bicycle or a hope chest. Such a name is "corporate" but not "incorporated". 

For example, we often see business names like "Fletcher and Sons" and "Bo-Peep's Sheep Yarns" that are not incorporated entities. These small businesses are corporate, fictional entities, but they are not chartered by any government or parent corporation, receive no special privileges, are not franchises and owe nobody but their owners for their existence. 

In the same way, "John Mark Doe" is a fictional entity apart from the man who uses it ---the name is not the man--- so it is corporate, but since "he" is not chartered by any government or parent corporation, receives no special privileges, isn't a franchise, and owes nobody but God and his parents for his existence, he is not incorporated. The Trade Name,  like the living man, is unincorporated and sovereign.

This same rule applies to all business and trade organizations that are corporate, but not incorporated.

Thus, Santa Clara County, Unincorporated, is a sovereign entity. It's corporate in that it is fictional, but it isn't incorporated; it does not owe its existence to some other entity and is not receiving its right to exist or any special privileges from any other entity.  It operates on the land and soil of California, Unincorporated, which is also a sovereign entity.

Sovereign states and counties can't go bankrupt, have no "corporate veil" to protect stockholders, and don't receive any special benefits or privileges (like the ability to go bankrupt) from any sponsoring organization or parent corporation.

The County of Santa Clara and the State of California are totally different, non-sovereign incorporated franchises of Territorial United States corporations. They are like Dairy Queen or Burger King franchises. They all operate under constitutions that comply with The Constitution of the United States of America. They all receive privileges from and operating capital from parent corporations that sponsor them and which are responsible for their existence and for granting them privileges. 

So, when a state like California incorporates and forms a State of California territorial franchise or a STATE OF CALIFORNIA municipal franchise, it loses its sovereignty and devolves to being equivalent to any other such incorporated entity. It is no different than P.J. Mudd's BBQ, Inc. or J.C. PENNY, INC.

This is underlined and confirmed by The Clearfield Doctrine.

California (Unincorporated) functions in the capacity of a sovereign state. Santa Clara County (Unincorporated) functions in the capacity of a sovereign county. State of California is just a local incorporated  franchise of the territorial USA, Inc.  STATE OF CALIFORNIA is a local incorporated franchise of the municipal UNITED STATES, INC.  County of Santa Clara is just a franchise of a franchise: the State of California.  These all function in the capacity of incorporated franchises that owe their existence to and receive privileges from foreign governments and foreign parent corporations.

Think in terms of the French-chartered Target, Inc. stores that dot the landscape.  These are all foreign corporations.  They are all incorporated franchises of the parent corporation --Target International, Inc.

So, ask yourselves--- how could you be subject to the rules imposed by a Target store?  -- because in essence, that is the nature of the "State of California" and the "STATE OF CALIFORNIA", too.  They are local incorporated franchises of foreign parent corporations. Just like Target.

If you are employed by Target, you obviously have to follow its corporate policies, wear its uniforms, etc.  If you volunteer to enter a Target store, you have to follow their rules inside their store, too, or their private security guards will keep you from running up and down the escalators.

It's no different, folks--- except that these foreign commercial corporation franchises have bamboozled you into thinking that they are or that they represent the actual California state, when all they really are is an incorporated business providing government services.  

Ask yourselves what happens when you organize your unincorporated counties and your unincorporated states---- which are all sovereign entities?  Ah, so, then we get back to the actual states and the actual people and the Law of the Land.  This is the missing link. This is where the power lies--- in being unincorporated.

Unincorporated = sovereign.

  1. “Sovereignty itself is… not subject to law, for it is the author and source of law… while sovereign powers are delegated to the agencies of government, sovereignty itself remains with the people, by whom and for whom all government exists and acts.” Justice Thomas Stanley Matthews in Yick Wo v. Hopkins [p. 370]:

    1. Mind if I borrow that case hope not like to site it to friends I'm trying to enlighten

    2. delegate is not synonymous with surrender

  2. I figured out the importance of "Unincorporated", as even using as a status or simply Non-Incorporated, when studying Unincorporated verse Incorporated territories this is the key difference between the US citizen and US national where one is taxed and the other is not.
    Incorporated is the same as being a dependant or child or infant in the eyes of the legal system, you are incorporated for benefits and protections and required to pay corresponding duties and exactions and are being administered as such.
    Incorporated is no different then Organized , becoming part of a larger body system as an Organ system no organs exist alone from the body and as such are 100% dependant to the system for existence. Every registration or certification is essentially an incorporation or organization into a governing body politic. Some people are confused on terms like thinking "Individual" for instance is some safe word when it is actually a type of Organization listed on certain government forms, why one is taxed as an Individual not as a Man but as an Organized/Incorporated entity.

    1. Careful, Mike. US nationals are still subject to US jurisdiction and taxable.
      8 USC § 1101(a)(21), [t]he term “national” means a person owing permanent allegiance to a state.”
      8 USC § 1101(a)(22), [t]he term “national of the United States” means
      (A) a citizen of the United States, or
      (B) a person who, though not a citizen of the United States, owes permanent allegiance to the United States.
      You are a national as in (21) and not (22). As such you are a state national and not a US national, the latter being Samoans who choose to become "non-citizen nationals of the US" and have their passport endorsed as such on page 27.

    2. FreeMan, What should we claim as our standing ? Even in (21) above, if it is referring to State Nationals, says it means a person owing an allegiance to a state. I found this definition long ago in ( I believe) Bouviers; allegiance: a debt owed by a feudal serf to a vassal lord. That could be what they had in mind. I have used Non-Combatant Sovereign on court docs, but they certainly don't offer you that one on a tax form do they.

    3. ET, it is better owing allegiance to a state that to the US and its jurisdiction. Your nationality is from the state where you are born. Your Citizenship (Capitol C) is from the state you inhabit and have your domicile. Now most people are not citizens or Citizens because they do not participate in government nor are members of jural societies which is the definition of a citizen. However if they believe in government for and by the people they should partake in jural assemblies in their state to be a Constututional State Citizen. Because they are constantly trying to hide our true status, there really are no good statutes to refer to but i will give you a few you can use:
      You are:
      _an "alien" pursuant to 8 USC § 1101(a)(3) The term “alien” means any person not a citizen or national of the United States.
      __"naturalized" pursuant to 8 USC § 1101(a)(23) in the state you inhabit if you were not born there
      __a "national" pursuant to 8 USC § 1101(a)(21), [t]he term “national” means a person owing permanent allegiance to a state.” 
      __an "American national" pursuant to 8 U.S. Code § 1502, however this does use the term "person"
      __A "Constitutional State Citizen" pursuant to the Constitution for the united States of America Article 4 Section 2a; “The Citizens of each State shall be entitled to all Privileges and Immunities of Citizens in the several States.” (Privileges and Immunities Clause)
      __a Citizen of the united States of America, NOT the same as a U.S. (federal) citizen.
      __Citizen of (your state), being an inhabitant and having your domicile in (your state) and therefore a Citizen of these united States of America.
      __The Supreme Court has officially defined the key term "United States" to have three separate and distinct meanings: …*(3) It may be the collective name for the fifty States, which are united by and under the U.S. Constitution. - Hooven & Allison Co. vs. Evatt, 324 U.S. 652 (1945)
      __A person who is a citizen of the United States (Federal government; Fourteenth Amendment citizen) is necessarily a citizen of the particular state in which he resides. But a person may be a citizen of a particular state and not a citizen of the United States (Federal government; Fourteenth Amendment citizen). To hold otherwise would be to deny to the state the highest exercise of its sovereignty, - the right to declare who are its citizens. [State v. Fowler, 41 La. Ann. 380] [6 S. 602 (1889), emphasis added]
      __It is quite clear, then, that there is a citizenship of the United States (Federal government; Fourteenth Amendment citizen) and a citizenship of a State, which are distinct from each other and which depend upon different characteristics or circumstances in the individual. - Slaughter House Cases, 83 U.S. 36 [(1873) emphasis added]
      __There is a distinction between citizenship of the United States (Federal government; Fourteenth Amendment citizen) and citizenship of a particular state, and a person may be the former without being the latter. [Alla v. Kornfeld, 84 F.Supp. 823] [(1949) headnote 5, emphasis added]

      You may want to consider yourself a non Federal US citizen state national which of course is not on any tax return except on an IRS Form W-8 Certificate of Foreign Status. To the IRS you are considered a non-resident alien and not subject to their taxation jurisdiction.
      The only status that they will formally recognize besides US citizen or US national is State Citizen and will issue you a passport as such if requested and properly applied for. I got mine through

    4. much did it cost you and have you traveled with there a better one than a "diplomatic" passport with immunity..!!

    5. James, $400 for the classes plus the cost of the passport + card (optional but highly recommended). Not yet, I just got it 2 months ago. Not unless you are a diplomat. This is better than a diplomat passport since a US diplomat is still subject to US jurisdiction. This state passport is not subject to US jurisdiction.

  3. The living man has a title and only corporations have names ...

    In canada note, under the vital statistics act 46.1 ... the deputy registrar general is the only one who signing authority for the NAME... our identity is protected as witness ..

    “The ORG deputy registrar general only records events, the ORG does not register people...

    Proof living man not a name, ask them and authenticate doc as proof your statement of live birth child identity is protected... they cant harm a child.

    Love & Peace

  4. The living man must never use the NAME as its not yours to give. The surname is shared by many.

    Get both birth certificates authenicated.... carry long version as identity and use unidentifiable number on it as your identity .. tell your govt to refer to recipent number xxxxxxx when corresponding and why above. Use x as signature witnessed by notary which you can notarize and certificate yourself.

    Use the card birth certificate authenicated and send copy with your original bill with a authenicated letter telling CRA to discharge the debt. PAID

    You were always free, you just didnt know how to use it.

    Love & Peace

  5. oops, that's what I get for reading comments from bottom first, sorry. I see now that you are referring to Canada Docs.

  6. I knew my inner voice was guiding me well all these years, as I have never incorporated myself or any business entity I created...always an unincorporated vessel operating in trade (though it took until reading Judge Anna to get the lingo and concepts on this straightened-out).

    Thanks, Judge Anna, for once again clarifying this. It can't be stated enough. We are thankful!

  7. The French have it right. When they introduce themselves they say "Je m'appelle Pierre." or "I call myself Pierre." They don't say "My name is Pierre." like we do. We don't have a name. We have an appellation.

    1. thats why you say you can call me. remember that old commercial you can call me rob or you can call me steve? they were letting us know.

  8. Judge Anna, what do you mean you can't go bankrupt if you have an unincorporated business....they do it all the time....if your broke, your can't get blood from a turnip...!!

  9. neko is a purrfect example. (hopefully my image works)

    "Neko's" inn/store. no charter or corporation. outside the "city".

    one of a "race of merchant cats" (natural rights).

    gold pieces only, substance in paws, no credit/notes/bills, no "chose in action". no hidden "trustees" plundering his estate -- he literally always carries his bag of items around with him.

    "busy travellers" -- a.k.a. neko is a "native" and not a "federal citizen". he is the only "resident" in his entire town.

    "neko" == "cat" a.k.a. that is his trade/appellation (descriptive name), like "smith" might be a blacksmith, "taylor" might be a tailor, rosenstein might be a jewelry dealer in red stones and rubies, etc.

    he is a merchant at law on the cash (specie) basis, but not in commerce.

    no charter from the king, he just puts up his own wooden sign outside pointing to his house/inn/store.


    "you have to get up on your hind legs and govern yourself"

    1. dunno why my profile image does not work, you'll have to click my username and then profile to see neko "common law cat" in action.

      he is also a peaceful non-combatant civilian. it is neither possible for you to attack him, nor for any enemies to attack him

      (he occasionally travels and you will find him standing alone, surrounded by monsters, so he commands higher prices because he is the only store around)

      the city merchants and other innkeepers don't dare travel out and about, but neko has some unknown magical power to keep monsters at bay.

      i dont know how he does it, which particular passport he has, but he is able to avoid "war".
