I think we have finally done it. And I am the original skeptic.
Usually, I am the one standing silent in the back of the party room whenever someone announces that they have nailed the problem and located "the" answer to the spider's web.
And it's true that I am not jumping up and down, not pouring champagne over my head. In fact, I look and feel rather grim. Think of George Washington's mood just BEFORE he crossed the Delaware. To the best of my knowledge and belief, we now have the answers, but they are not easy answers and it will require considerable money and effort and manpower to exercise and prosecute the answers. It's show time. O-dark-thirty. We need everyone to Push on every level. We need everyone to correct their own political status records. We need everyone to join their State Assemblies. And God knows, we need donations. All the work is being donated already, but this is one big wad of work in front of us, to be done against highly paid, highly skilled, and very well-financed opponents. Underdog strikes again. Someone commented tonight that "faith is how things get done". It is certainly how everything I have done got done. So why change anything at this point? I am talking out loud to our Father in Heaven and to you, just sayin' --- this is what we are up against, and we are in need of Divine Providence. We are in need of the understanding and support of every American on both sides of the fence. Please donate toward the court costs and diplomatic outreach and educational efforts if you can. My Paypal is: firstname.lastname@example.org, and the snail mail is: Anna Maria Riezinger, c/o Box 520994, Big Lake, Alaska 99652. And yes, Grandma is still the Paymaster, Chief Cook, and Bottle Washer.
Numerous people have been calling, writing, and emailing asking me how to contact the assembly coordinators in their States. Also some people have asked how they can confirm that the person claiming to be Assembly Coordinator really is "officially" a State Assembly Coordinator.
Early on we realized that there is a lot of confusion going on out there with a lot of different so-called "patriot groups" getting started, mostly without a clue as to the actual history or the issues of jurisdiction and citizenship that this whole Mess involves.
So we had a few Coordinators from the very start who did reliably grasp the concepts and the reasons for the paperwork and the recording processes and they have been acting as a support group to make sure that other volunteer Coordinators are on board and up to speed. They have also weeded out would-be Coordinators who acted only as place-holders with no actual action to form an Assembly organization--- to ensure that progress would not be impeded by people lacking the will, skill or determination to get the job done.
There may be multiple State Assembly Coordinators in any one State, as indeed County Assembly Coordinators are also typically involved in putting together the State Assembly. This is because the State Assembly in our American system receives its empowerment from the County Assemblies.
This multiplicity of State Assembly Coordinators is only to be expected and be expected to grow as the organizations expand and more County Assemblies form and more people in more areas step to the plate.
Bear in mind that there is really only one State Assembly, but that State Assembly comes from all over the geographically defined State, thus there is only one California Assembly, but there may be a State Assembly Coordinator for Southern California, one for Mid-State California, one for the Sacramento Valley, one for San Francisco Bay, one for Northern California --- and all expected to work together as Coordinators for the California Assembly.
Tall Orders, but we can do it if we put our minds to it. As each State has a Coordinator step forward and "pass muster" by completing their paperwork and demonstrating that they understand the reasons we do these things, etc., the sovereign State becomes "re-populated". Their names then appear on the Coordinator listings on www.TheAmericanStatesAssembly.net
Also, please join us every Monday when The American States Assembly hosts me for a one hour question and answer session via Zoom Teleconference. Just go online and download the Zoom program onto your computer and use this contact address: https://zoom.us/j/597600142
The number of the teleconference you wish to join is: 597600142.
There are also continuing questions about "State Nationals" versus "State Citizens".
Basically, State Nationals are always welcome to join our calls and ask questions, but a State National carries no obligation to serve their State in any public capacity. That is, they don't serve the government, the government serves them.
That may sound real good to most of you, I am sure, but I have to point out that at least some of us must bear the extra burden as I do, to serve the sovereign State government on an active, day to day basis. Without those of us who volunteer to take on this responsibility, the rights and the prerogatives of the People of the State disappear, and we all no longer have access to the Constitutions we are owed and other protections that the sovereign State provides.
American State Citizens thus serve the sovereign State government in some capacity --- as Jurors, as Electors, and in many other possible capacities and positions both paid and unpaid. We "carry the water" so that the rest of the People of Wisconsin, People of Colorado, People of Virginia, et alia.... have a voice and a choice and a home to come home to.
This is a daunting challenge, especially when you consider that two foreign governments under contract to provide our States with "essential government services" are already bleeding us dry, but as more and more Americans wake up and get highly motivated, resources and commitments will get realigned and The Push to get off the ground will ease.
It is to be hoped that as we develop more "at a glance" visual aids and as more and more people grasp what has actually gone on in this country, millions of Americans will step forward to fill the gaps and do what has to be done.
You can assist this process by sharing the information with friends and family, with club members and workmates, with your religious leaders, with your business associates, with your public servants, too.
At first you will be looked at --- as I described and experienced it myself -- "like a talking horse". Nobody will grasp what you are saying the first time around, but as you explain it repeatedly, your skill at explaining it will grow and hopefully we will soon have new pdf visual aids you can download and print off at home to distribute and to use as aids as you explain things yourself.
More and more people are waking up and "smelling the java" every day, and as the news gets out and more people start grasping the history and the law and the facts--- well, then, they know what has to be done.
Instead of staring at you like you are some kind of a freak or nutcase, they will start listening intently, and then, they will pitch in and help.
Your public servants will stop making fun of you and start showing some respect and cooperation. In time, you will find them pitching in and helping you, too, because they realize that what you are doing helps them, too.
When everyone knows their part and does their job, America will be great again. By taking up this work, you are in fact leading the way forward, upward, and onward. You are fulfilling the vital role you were born to do on your very first birthday.
When I was a kid growing up in Black River Falls, Wisconsin, the big event of the summer was the County Fair. My Best Friend Forever and I would volunteer as gophers and later as kitchen help and still later as waitresses for the VFW concession every year, and every year, my BFF would get a "Grab Bag" for the fun of it.
A Grab Bag can contain a very wide range and assortment of goods, the idea being somewhat akin to gambling. The majority of Grab Bags contain nonsense novelty items, plastic bangle bracelets, plastic paper clips, single wrapped pieces of hard candy, and similar items of use but very little value --- but once in a while they throw in something that is worth far more than the price of the Grab Bag to keep the customers coming.
It's been years since I have even seen a concession offering Grab Bags and I have no idea if the younger generation even knows the concept, so I have belabored you all with an explanation.
This posting is a Grab Bag -- the value of which depends on who you are, where you are, and which issues you face, but begins with an issue that everyone reading this faces: are you an American?
Item One from the Grab Bag:
"An American citizen in territory occupied by the United States is at all times entitled to his constitutional rights." --- or so we are told in Corpus Juris Secondum, (American Jurisprudence Second Edition), War and Emergency, Section 38, Military Occupation, (a) general, (b) in effect.
Please read this above quote again in light of the information I am giving you. Note the words "territory" --- as in Territorial or District Government presumed to be overlaying the land jurisdiction of this country as a result of the 1863 Enrollment Act --- and "occupied" as in "military occupation".
Now focus in on the word, "American". If you are an American and this quote from the venerable secular Bible of American Jurisprudence is correct, how is it you are routinely deprived of your constitutional guarantees in District Courts throughout this country?
Could it be that I am right and that thanks to foreign citizenships, both Territorial and Municipal citizenships, being "conferred" on you without your knowledge or consent, you are no longer being recognized as an American?
There are two kinds of separate Federal Citizenship created under the Constitutions --- (1) United States Citizens and (2) Citizen of the United States--- and these exist apart from the American citizenship that already existed at the time the Constitutions were adopted. These political statuses are very succinctly defined at Article 1, Section 2, Clause 2 and Article 1, Section 3, Clause 3.
I have already proven to any reasonable man that the only two branches of the Federal Government that survived the American Civil War were the Territorial and Municipal branches, so the Territorial United States Citizens and the Municipal Citizens of the United States continued to exist.
Now, what happens if a State Trust is created, say the Ohio State Trust, and along with that a Federal Territorial Citizenship is granted to everyone?
This Federal Territorial Citizenship as a "United States Citizen" is merely "conferred" upon you as a "gift" by the British Territorial United States Government upon your acceptance of a Birth Certificate defining you as a Legal --- rather than Lawful --- Person.
This is where they unlawfully and unconscionably convert your political status from that of an American to that of a British Territorial "United States Citizen".
All right, so now you are a foreigner and merely a "resident" in your own country, presumed to be here providing the "essential government services" described in Article IV of the Constitutions.
This British Territorial United States Citizen is permanently domiciled in the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico, and if you look at the name of this Foreign Situs Trust, it will appear to be exactly the same as your own Proper Name and it will appear in exactly the same style and form: John Mark Doe.
Now what if the British Territorial United States Government decides to "incorporate" as a franchise of the British Crown Corporation --- which it did in the 1870's--- ?
Well, now, it has "devolved" from the status of a government and become a commercial corporation doing business as the United States of America, Incorporated, like any other commercial corporation on Earth, and all its "citizenry" have been redefined as shareholders (known as voters) and also as chattel backing the investments of that corporation.
So much for the fate and identity of John Mark Doe, a British Territorial United States Citizen.
Next, the Municipal branch of the Federal Government gets in the act. This is a plenary oligarchy run by the members of the British Territorial Congress--- the same exact people who presumed "United States Citzenship" upon you in Step One above.
As the representative body of the British Territorial Government and as the oligarchs in charge of the Municipal United States Government also, they confer another citizenship on you, presuming (liberally) that if you are a British Territorial United States Citizen, you may also be a "Citizen of the United States" ---- their Municipal Oligarchy allowed by Article 1, Section 8, Clause 17.
The Municipal Government also decides to get in on the incorporation thing, and incorporate themselves as a franchise of the Holy Roman Empire, doing business as the United States, Inc. They also devolve to the level of a commercial corporation but their "citizenry" is all presumed to be "paupers" and "criminals" who are already guilty (sinners) by definition. See Section 2 of the 14th Amendment. All THEIR assets are presumed to be donated to the Public Charitable Trust (PCT) and they are used as perpetual DEBTORS, guilty by definition before they ever enter a court room.
Do you see what is happening here? The American citizen is disappearing, being "eased out" by competing Federal Citizenships being conferred on him and presumed to attach to him by his failure to object and take exception to this process of genocide on paper.
Of course, you are conveniently kept in the dark about this entire process. None of your public servants tell you a word, so as to ensure that you have no opportunity to object to these arrangement undertaken "for" you by your presumed "representatives".
So are you still an American citizen? Not on paper. On paper, you are a Dual Federal Citizen. That's their story, anyway.
And in both cases, you are no longer presumed to be a living man or woman. You are presumed to be voluntarily acting as both a British Territorial Foreign Situs Trust and United States Citizen, and a Municipal Government Slave and "Vessel" known as a "Citizen of the United States" doing business as the JOHN M DOE under admiralty law.
So you are no longer "recognizable" by the courts as an American citizen and you are no longer entitled to the guarantees of the Constitutions. The monsters running the Congress who wear both hats in this scheme-- acting as the British Territorial United States Congress on one hand, and as the Municipal United States Congress on the other, have put themselves in position to enslave you and railroad you in the Admiralty court system and there is only one way out of this.
Expatriate from any presumed "US Citizenship".
Do the paperwork to make your claim explicit and place it on the Public Record of the State of State land recording district of the local Territorial Government franchise. At this point you become recognizable as an American and as a Lawful Person, one of the People of Ohio.
You also become eligible to serve as an Ohio State Citizen and to assemble the Ohio Assembly --- the actual State of the Union thus comes back into view.
And the foreign incorporated interlopers get shoved back in their box.
Have the members of Congress committed treason against us? Yes, they have been doing so over the course of the past 150 years, incrementally, on purpose and in clueless stupidity both, until the issues must be addressed and the actual American Government restored.
Item Two from this Grab Bag:
A Taxpayer is a Tax Collector -- a Warrant Officer in the British Merchant Marines known as a "Withholding Agent".
Everyone who ever mistakenly signed a 1040 Form was claiming under penalty of perjury to be acting voluntarily as a British Territorial United States Citizen and as a "Withholding Agent".
All this web of lies and legal presumptions attaches to you, an American citizen owing no obligation to even participate in this system, because you have mistakenly been deluded into thinking that you are a "US Citizen" of some kind and that you are a Withholding Agent for the British Territorial United States Government working in their Merchant Marine Service.
Well, of course, they are going to throw the book at you for any failure to do your duty, aren't they? And they are going to continue to go after the poor old Municipal United States STRAWMAN that they gratuitously named after you, too.
So again, what is the only way out of this situation?
"There has been a mistake....."
"....and now that I know what a "Withholding Agent" is, I cannot possibly claim to be a member of the British Merchant Marines, and nobody can suborn me to testify under penalty of perjury to say that I am a member of the British Merchant Marine Service or force me to take any action to file taxes as if I am, because that would be inducement and coercion to commit perjury and other crimes."
Again, do the paperwork. Establish your claim to be an American and a Lawful Person. Expatriate from any other political status. Cancel all Prior Powers of Attorney granted or presumed to be granted to anyone claiming to represent you in any capacity at all, and stipulate the conditions upon which your copyrights and trademarks will be recognized and honored.
Has the British Government betrayed your trust? Is the Pope Roman Catholic? Is "Roman Catholic" a misnomer?
As an American, you are owed all rights, all titles, and all interest in your estate and in your land and in your Good Name.
As a British Territorial "United States Citizen" you are in the unenviable position of a Person doing business as a Foreign Situs Trust permanently domiciled in Puerto Rico.
As a Municipal "Citizen of the United States" you are in the position of a "VESSEL" subject to bottomry bonds under Admiralty Law--- and already condemned as a fugitive subject to salvage and arrest.
And all of this--- absolutely all of this --- is the most specious kind of self-interested lies and bull crap. It only succeeds because you remain blissfully unaware of it and don't take steps to put an end to it.
Item Three in this Grab Bag:
The only court left in America that has Article III powers is the United States District Court --- a Court that is literally foreign to you and which can only act in the presence of maritime and admiralty contracts. You are a member of a Foreign Nation --- your actual State. You are a Minnesotan, a Georgian, a Vermonter, etc. As a result the United States District Court is in no position to serve you, except in Arbitration of a dispute between you and a Municipal CITIZEN.
Do you see how this works? They can't operate in Public, because by definition they are a private court hired by a commercial corporation-- the same corporation operating the entire "District" government of the British Territorial United States. And they obviously can't sit in judgement of their own employer, as that would be a grotesque conflict of interest.
But they can be invoked to operate in their Article III capacity inclusive of the Supplemental Rules (the Rules that allow them to attach assets and distribute Equity) and sit in private arbitration against any Municipal PERSON defined as a "vessel".
And that, my dears, is how they have all been working this "System" to their advantage all these years.
They bring suit against the Municipal PERSON which is defined as a "vessel" operating under Admiralty Law, then they use the Supplemental Rules of Admiralty to "attach" the assets related to that VESSEL and distribute the proceeds to whomever or whatever claims to have an ownership interest in that VESSEL.
They issue Summons for an in Rem action in Admiralty against the Municipal "Citizen of the United States" conferred upon you without your knowledge or consent, and when you show up to defend the THING against charges, they "attach" you as the VESSEL's owner, responsible for its debts, operations, accounts, etc., etc., etc. and then they proceed to prosecute you "as" the VESSEL --- and they have a secret motivation to prosecute you to the fullest extent of the Admiralty Law.
They, acting as the British Territorial United States District Court, get a share of the "prize money" from apprehending such Municipal VESSELS, and they can do so without an appearance of conflict of interest, because technically, the Municipal United States Government is an entirely different corporation than the one they work for---- even though, at the top of the pyramid, both are being run by the same group of people acting both as the [British Territorial] United States Congress and as The Congress of the United States [Municipal].
And therein lies the rub and the total conflict of interest and the entire story of the gross corruption being worked upon this country and its clueless People. Who is responsible?
Ultimately, the Queen and the Pope are responsible. Both have acted in Gross Breach of Trust and have allowed this System of things in violation of every duty they owe as International Trustees and as Allies and as Principal Parties and High Contracting Powers obligated under the Constitutions we are in fact all owed.
Their minions, the members of the British Territorial United States Congress acting in both that capacity and also acting as franchisees running the Municipal United States Government have constructed unconscionable "private" contracts with each one of us via the registration of Birth Certificates in our names and then, with the Brits having accomplished that much, the Pope's minions have done the second and more egregious constructive fraud against us by secretively creating United States "VESSELS" in our names for the purpose of allowing us to be sued.
And all this has been done "for" us by our purported "representatives" without our knowledge or consent, forced down our throats by coercive racketeering, and all the while, we haven't been told or known a thing about any of this.
Even the idea that we, Americans, are in any way involved in any Maritime or Admiralty activities at all, is foreign --- and in fact, is untrue. We are all land lubbers, most of us, from beginning to end.
We are being press-ganged and conscripted by the British Territorial United States Government in contravention of the Public Law which has prohibited these activities for over 200 years using the excuse that we privately contracted with them --- as babies no less --- to allow this.
Item 5 in this Grab Bag: the Root of the Evil
The ultimate root of all this evil is the birth registration process, which is in practical terms, like all the other evil perpetuated against us, is carried out by franchises of the British Territorial United States Government operating as "the States of States" on our shores.
These incorporated Territorial franchises (think Burger King franchises) mindlessly carry out the wishes of the parent corporations and are obligated to do so by virtue of holding their charters or prescriptive status as a grant given to them by these foreign corporations.
The people actually doing the dirty work are forced into it by their employment contracts or by the professional licenses they have mistakenly applied for.
Thus the young lady at the Bureau of Vital Statistics or the Richmond County Health Department merrily entering your baby's name on a registration form has no idea that she is committing international crime and participating in genocide against American citizens.
Likewise, the doctors signing off on these purported contracts largely have no idea that they have "conscripted themselves" into the US Army by applying for a license to practice medicine and that as Uniformed Officers (Title 37, Uniformed Officer Code), they have no choice but to follow the "Public Policy" of the US ARMY, INC. and to participate in this genocide-on-paper being carried out against American babies, serving to unlawfully convert their political status from being American citizens to being "presumed" British Territorial United States Citizens.
It is the same way with all the IRS, BLM, FBI, FEMA, BATF, and other "Agency" officials. They are all just subcontractors and franchisees in the same way that the "States of States" and their various "Bureaus" and "Departments" are commercial subcontractors providing services.
This is why there is no remedy or relief available from any State of State Court. This is why all these Public Officials take phony Oaths of Office --- just pull one of their Oaths of Office. There you will see an unidentified Person using a middle initial "swearing or affirming" ---- well, folks, who is it and what are they doing? This isn't an Oath of Office. It's a mockery and invalid contract by definition.
So, our mission as American State Citizens, if we accept it, is to correct our own political status records, serve Notice of same, and restore our rightful form of Government. Our secondary mission is to spread the word worldwide about what has gone on here and in most of the other countries worldwide.
Our additional mission once we have our own records corrected and ducks in order is to "fully inform" the members of the United States military that: (1) the Enrollment Act of 1863 is both unlawful and illegal; (2) they are still under contract to serve us, the civilian government, not the "civil" government; (3) we wish them to "Cease and Desist" all private conscription activities involving minors and to convert their registration processes to simple recording functions recognizing the American State Citizenship of all babies born within our geographic borders; (4) we wish them to formally release any private contract with any baby they "seized and presumed upon" on their phony 150 year-old "battlefield" and (5) we wish them to recognize the fact that The American Civil War was a long-resolved commercial mercenary conflict that had nothing to do with our actual States of the Union and nothing to do with us.
Got your paperwork on the Public Record? Sharpen up your pens and paper and jot off a note to the Joint Chiefs of Staff. And President Trump. And the Queen. And the Pope.
Regardless of what you may think about who these people in the so called "government" really are, what they do does very much effect every American, both citizens and American Nationals.
I know that from personal experience at the Bundy ranch in Nevada in 2014, and many other events in the last few years. These guys just flat don't give a damn who they run over or what your status is to get what they want, which is total dictatorial and tyrannical absolute power. They are criminals with badges and guns, and you are in their crosshairs.
Regardless of what we know about how fraudulent their power and authority is, what they are doing in moving to atheistic Marxist communism is a real huge threat to our safety and freedom.
We are running out of time to correct this before the leftists trip the trigger on their violent overthrow of peace and freedom in America. Are you ready to use tools other than your computer keyboard to keep your family safe?
We are peaceful and in a defensive posture, but I am afraid the Marxists will not be satisfied to leave us alone, and in fact will start massive violence this summer.
Do you have some provisions stored and do you have the training and equipment to survive in the face of criminal activity on the part of "government" goons and others who are using your tax dollars to clamp down on your freedom?
If not, you are just about out of time to take this seriously and do something about it.
Start by correcting your status. Then immediately prepare to survive for several weeks or months or more ON YOUR OWN or with other local families.
The Marxist communist Democrats want to take your guns so they can kill you and you can't resist.
Many so called Republicans are going right along with them including Trump, with his bump stock ban, and regardless of what he said in his NRA speech yesterday.
Please comment on this video below. We want your opinion especially about the timing of all this.
Why is this Sunday called Dominica in Albis or White Sunday?
Because on this day the neophytes laid aside the white dress which, as emblem of their innocence, they received on Holy Saturday, and put on their necks an Agnus Dei, made of white wax, and blessed by the pope, to remind them always of the innocence for which they were given, and of the meekness of the Lamb Jesus. For which reason the Church sings at the Introit:
INTROIT As newborn babes, alleluia: desire the rational milk without guile. Alleluia, alleluia, alleluia. (I Pet II. 2.) Rejoice to God our helper: sing aloud to the God of Jacob. (Ps. LXXX.) Glory be to the Father and to the Son, and to the Holy Ghost, as it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.
COLLECT Grant, we beseech Thee, Almighty God, that we, who have completed the paschal solemnities may, through Thy merciful bounty, ever retain them in our life and conversation. Through our Lord Jesus Christ Thy Son, who liveth and reigneth with Thee, in the Unity of the Holy Ghost, God, world without end, Amen.
EPISTLE(I John V. 4-100.) Dearly Beloved, Whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world; and this is the victory which overcometh the world, our faith. Who is he that overcometh the world, but he that believeth that Jesus is the Son of God? This is he that came by water and blood, Jesus Christ: not by water only, but by water and blood. And it is the spirit which testifieth that Christ is the truth. And there are three who give testimony in heaven: the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one. And there are three that give testimony on earth: the spirit, and the water, and the blood: and these three are one. If we receive the testimony of men, the testimony of God is greater: for this is the testimony of God, which is greater, because he hath testified of his Son. He that believeth in the Son of God, hath the testimony of God in himself.
INSTRUCTIONAs in his gospel, so in his epistles, and especially in this, St. John proves the divinity of Christ which had been denied by some heretics. He says that Christ had come to purify all men from sin by water and blood, that is, by. His blood shed on the cross for our reconciliation, and by the water of baptism to which He has given the power, the divine effect of His blood, and has thus proved Himself the divine Redeemer. This His divine dignity is attested by the Holy Ghost who lived in Christ and worked through Him with His fullness, and when sent by Him after our Lord's Ascension, produced most wonderful effect in the apostles and the faithful. As now on earth three, the Spirit, water, and blood, give testimony of Christ's divinity and agree in it, so also in heaven three, the Father, who calls Him His beloved Son, (Matt, III. 17.) the Word, or the Son Himself, who wrought so many miracles, the Holy Ghost, when He descended upon Him at the baptism in the Jordan, (Luke III. 22.) give testimony of His divinity, and these also agree with one another in their testimony. If Christ is truly God, then we must believe in Him, and this faith must be a living one, that is, it must prove fertile in good works, and this faith conquers the world by teaching us to love God above all, to despise the world with its pleasures, and to overcome it by indifference. Let us strive to have such faith, and we shall overcome all temptations and gain the eternal crown.
ASPIRATIONO Lord Jesus! strengthen me by a lively faith in Thy divinity, so that I may not succumb in the spiritual combat against the world, the flesh, and the devil, and be eternally lost.
GOSPEL (John XX. 1931.) At that time, When it was late that same day, the first of the week and the doors were shut,where the disciples were gathered together, for fear of the Jews, Jesus came, and stood in the midst, and said to them: Peace be to you. And when he had said this, he showed them his hands and his side. The disciples therefore were glad, when, they saw the Lord. He said therefore to them again: Peace be to you. As the Father hath sent me, I also send you. When he had said this, he breathed on them; and he said to them: Receive ye the Holy Ghost; whose sins you shall forgive, they are forgiven them: and whose sins you shall retain, they are retained. Now Thomas, one of the twelve, who is called Didymus, was not with them when Jesus came. The other disciples therefore said to him: We have seen the Lord. But he said to them: Except I shall see in his hands the print of the nails, and put my finger into the place of the nails, and put my hand into his side, I will not believe. And after eight days, again his disciples were within, and Thomas with them. Jesus cometh, the doors being shut, and stood in the midst, and said: Peace be to you. Then he said to Thomas: Put in thy finger hither, and see my hands, and bring hither thy hand, and put it into my side; and be not faithless, but believing. Thomas answered and said to him: My Lord and my God. Jesus saith to him: Because thou hast seen me, Thomas, thou hast believed: blessed are they that have not seen, and have believed.* Many other signs also did Jesus in the sight of his disciples, which are not written in this book. But these are written, that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God; and that, believing, you may have life in his name.
* What follows is omitted on the Feast of St. Thomas, 21st of December.
Why does Christ so often wish peace to the apostles?
To show that He only, by His death and resurrection, has made peace between God and man, and that His followers should be known by their harmony. (John XIII. 35.) There is a threefold peace: peace with God, by avoiding sin; peace with ourselves, that is, a good conscience; peace with our neighbor, by the exercise of charity. This threefold peace is necessary for our salvation.
Why did Jesus breathe upon the apostles when giving them the power to forgive sin?
To show that as bodily life was once given to Adam by the breath of God, so should the spiritual life be given henceforth by the apostles and their successors, through the Holy Ghost in the Sacrament of Penance, to the children of Adam who were spiritually dead.
Why did God permit Thomas to doubt the Resurrection of Christ?
That Thomas, as well as we, says St. Gregory, should be strengthened in humble belief in the Resurrection of Christ, and that all doubts should be removed.
Had Thomas true faith when with his own eyes he saw Christ?
Yes, for he saw Christ only in His humanity, and yet testified to His divinity by exclaiming: My Lord and my God!
Is it true, meritorious faith not to be ready to believe before seeing that which is to be believed?
By no means; for faith consists precisely in firmly holding as true that which is not seen. Therefore Christ calls him blessed who has not seen and yet believes.
When is faith true and meritorious?
That is true faith which firmly believes and does all that God has revealed, whether written or unwritten, and when one lives in accordance with that faith; for faith in Jesus simply does not save us, when that which He has commanded is not performed. (Matt VII, 21.; James II. 20.) That faith is meritorious which without doubting and without hesitation willingly submits the understanding to revealed truths which it cannot comprehend, and this for the love of Gods who is eternal truth and cannot deceive.
Whence do we know for certain that God has revealed certain things?
From the Church of Christ which alone preserves the revealed word of God faithfully and uncorrupted, as it is contained in the Bible and in tradition; by the Holy Ghost all truth is given to the Church, and Christ remains with her until the end of the world. (Matt. XXVIII. 20.)
Has the Church of Christ any marks by which it may be known?
Christ's Church has these four marks: it is One, it is Holy, it is Catholic, and it is Apostolic.
How is the, Church one?
The Church is one, because all its members agree in one faith, are all in one communion, and are all under one head. (Matt. XVI, 18.; Eph. IV. 37.)
How is the Church Holy?
The Church is Holy, in her Founder, Jesus Christ, and by teaching a holy doctrine, by inviting all to a holy life, and by the eminent holiness of so many thousands of her children.
How is the Church Catholic?
The Church is Catholic or Universal, because she subsists in all ages, teaches all nations, (Matt. XXVII. 19, 20.) and maintains all truth.
How is the Church Apostolic?
The Church is Apostolic, because she comes down by a perpetual succession from the apostles of Christ, and has her doctrines her orders, and her mission from them.
Which is this true Church?
The Roman Catholic Church, for she alone has these marks. She is One in her head, the Pope of Rome, in her doctrine, and in her Sacraments, which is evident since she excludes all those who do not accept all her dogmas. She is. Holy, for Christ her Founder is holy; and her doctrine and Sacraments lead to holiness, as shown by the multitude of her saints whose sanctity God arms by great miracles. No sect has saints. She is Catholic or Universal, for she has been in existence always from the times of the apostles, as is clearly shown by the fact that from the times of the apostles there have always been some who separated from her and founded sects. The Catholic Church has always existed, and cannot perish or become corrupt, since Christ has promised to remain with her to the end of the world; she is also spread over the whole world, is always being announced to all nations, and is fitted for all generations and for all people. She is Apostolic, for she accepts no doctrine which does not come from the apostles, and she can prove that the ministers of the Church, the bishops, have come down in unbroken succession from the apostles.
Can those who remain outside the Catholic Church be, saved?
The Council of Trent (Sess. V. in the Introduction) assigns the Catholic faith as the one without which it is impossible to please God, and the Roman Catechism teaches: (I part. art. 9.) "The Church is also called Catholic or Universal, because all who desire eternal salvation must cling to, and embrace her, like those who entered the ark to escape perishing in the flood." According to this doctrine of the Church, which the holy Fathers affirm, only those idolaters and obstinate heretics are excluded from salvation who knowingly deny the truth, and will not enter the Church. The Catholic Church does not condemn the unbelievers, she prays for them, leaves judgment to the Lord, who alone knows the heart, and knows whether the error is culpable or not, and she calls on all her, members to pray for their enlightenment.
Are we then already saved, if we belong to the true Church?
No, we must also live up to the faith which she teaches make good use of all means of salvation, regard and honor all her regulations and commands, for otherwise the words of Christ will be verified in us: And I say to you that many shall come from the east and the west, and shall sit down with Abraham, and Isaac, and Jacob, in the kingdom of heaven: but the children of the kingdom (the true Church) shall be cast out into exterior darkness. (Matt. VIII. 11.)
Tonight, I get word that Municipal Prosecutors are arresting "patriots" and throwing them in jail under: 18 U.S. Code § 2383.Rebellion or insurrection and 18 U.S. Code § 2385.Advocating overthrow of Government
Well, note the key words: "US Citizens".
If you claim to be a "US Citizen" you owe your service and obedience to the US Government. You have "voluntarily" subjected yourself to that foreign corporate government, so then, what business do you have to complain about it or take up arms against it?
This is precisely what I warned everyone about recently and the reason I "took exception" to any implied suggestion of affiliation with any of these groups that are purportedly assembling States of the Union, but including "US Citizens" as members.
This is also why I have warned all the Jural Assemblies not to associate with or allow anyone preaching violence to join them. Remember that we have the right to peaceably assemble --- note the word: "peaceably".
Any US Citizen involved in assembling an American State, or rather, pretending to do so, because they can't actually do that----- is out of their lane. They are trespassing against our sovereign States.
If we were to go onto their turf and try to organize a Territorial State of State, we would be transgressing against them in the same way. Ditto if we go into one of their courts and start flailing away.
It's that old straddling the electric fence thing, and the end results of this are as predictable as rain falling.
So, until the Patriots finally pay attention and learn the history and learn the law and figure out how the government is actually structured and what their options are, there will continue to be these kinds of arrests. And all I can do is stand here and shake my head.
This is not, and cannot be, about tearing down what is on their side of the fence. It is, and it has to be, about restoring what is supposed to be on our side of the fence.
The Municipal United States Government operates exclusively under Title 50 of the Territorial Federal Code, and has never adopted any other Title of Federal Code; the internal affairs including the financial and political affairs of this creepy war-mongering state-within-a-state perched on our shores and ruled over as a plenary oligarchy by the members of the Territorial Congress, are not open to general public view.
Last time I looked, you could buy your own copy of the Washington, DC Municipal Code for about $800. It includes such nuggets as the statutes they use to claim that we are legally dead and set up offshore corporations in our NAMES, to sell child labor contracts, to launder money, to create giant slush funds, and for other purposes.
The Municipal United States Government styles itself as a Roman-style Republic. This is the source of the Roman Fasces --- a bundle of sticks emblem that you see in the Capitol Rotunda and elsewhere. Aside from the lies that these monsters have told about us to enrich themselves, they have no jurisdiction related to any living American, yet they contrive to create and enforce the Lion's Share of the false claims in commerce that are brought against our Good Names and Estates.
These false claims are brought in MUNICIPAL COURTS and it is important for you to realize that everything about MUNICIPAL COURT is the realm of the dead --- literally. No living men appear in a MUNICIPAL COURT. Ever. What appear there are incorporated entities and the officers of incorporated entities, and rarely, a corporate entity which is not incorporated, but nonetheless, also a dead legal fiction entity.
How can you tell whether you are in a Municipal Court or a Territorial Court?
The Municipal Courts are the special province of incorporated entities, which are indicated by the use of Dog Latin ---- they use the all capital letters conventions of Latin to write what appears to be English -- and isn't actually, just like the THING bearing what appears to be your NAME isn't you.
It is all built of deceptions within deceptions, designed to confuse identities and issues, so when you go into one of these COURTS, you must be firmly grounded in exactly who you are, who THEY are, and what your relief and remedy is.
When you see the NAME of the COURT written in all capital letters, you know it is a MUNICIPAL COURT. And you know that the only relief to be found in a MUNICIPAL COURT is 50 USC Appendix, Section 7 (c) and (e).
TRADING WITH THE ENEMY ACT OF 1917 ACT OCT. 6, 1917, CH. 106, 40 STAT. 411 [Page 19] TITLE 50, APPENDIX—WAR AND NATIONAL DEFENSE
Section 7 (c) -- The sole relief and remedy of any person having any claim to any money or other property heretofore or hereafter conveyed, transferred, ] § 8 assigned, delivered, or paid over to the Alien Property Custodian, [now the US Attorney General] or required so to be, or seized by him shall be that provided by the terms of this Act [said sections], and in the event of sale or other disposition of such property by the Alien Property Custodian, shall be limited to and enforced against the net proceeds received therefrom and held by the Alien Property Custodian or by the Treasurer of the United States."
So, when you have to "visit" a Municipal COURT, this, the foregoing, is the "sole relief and remedy" for your Lawful Person. The Probate of your Estate can never be closed, and all the profit that these monsters seized upon, all the State Trusts they created, all the resources they commandeered, have to be reclaimed and redeemed through the Office of Alien Property Custodian --- which Office was closed and its functions transferred to the US Attorney General.
Yes, we have more important business to discuss with Mr. Barr than you might suppose.
When we "visit" one of their Municipal COURTS we do so as Lawful Persons, that is, via our reclaimed and re-conveyed Trade Names, and the only thing we say to them is that we are claiming our sole remedy and relief guaranteed under Title 50 as cited above; we then proceed to tell them what we want --- our land and homes and perfected titles, our trusts, our gold, our silver, and all our material and immaterial property assets and interests, free and clear of any debt or encumbrance.
Please also note Section V of the Trading with the Enemy Act, which documents the official end of the Second World War:
V. TERMINATION OF STATE OF WAR CESSATION OF HOSTILITIES The cessation of hostilities of World War II was officially proclaimed by the President of the United States, Proclamation No. 2714, Dec. 31, 1946, 12 F.R. 1, 61 Stat. 1048, in the following language: NOW, THEREFORE, I, HARRY S. TRUMAN, President of the United States of America, do hereby proclaim the cessation of hostilities of World War II, effective twelve o’clock noon, December 31, 1946.
This is the missing "Sunset Clause" that is applicable to end the "Victory Tax" by which millions of American State National civilians were ensnared into paying Federal Income Taxes "voluntarily" to help the "war effort" ---- and then were simply coerced and extorted into paying Federal Income Taxes forever afterward via the false presumption that they were "volunteer" British Merchant Marine Warrant Officers known as "Withholding Agents" and that no specific Sunset Clause ended this arrangement.
Well, here it is, tucked away in Title 50, for evidence that no actual State of War allowing American State Nationals to pay Federal Income Taxes exists --- very handy for claims against the Commissioner of the Internal Revenue Service.
Here is also the 1934 Amendment to the Trading With the Enemy Act which sets aside any statute of limitations to collect property "lost" prior to 1934, which includes the State Trusts, gold, taxes---all from THEIR perspective, "war profits" that we, American State Nationals, are heir to and owed:
"AN ACT To amend section 24 of the Trading with the Enemy Act, as amended. Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United States of America in Congress assembled, That section 24 (b) of the Trading with the Enemy Act, as amended by the Settlement of War Claims Act of 1928, approved March 10, 1928, is amended by adding at the end thereof the following: "Notwithstanding the expiration of any period of limitation provided by law, credit or refund of any income, war-profits, or excess-profits tax erroneously or illegally assessed or collected may be made or allowed if claim therefore was filed with the Commissioner of Internal Revenue by the Alien Property Custodian on or before February 15, 1933." Approved, June 18, 1934
And here's the annotation for the above:
June 18, 1934. [8. 852.] I Public, No. 374.] Trading with the Enemy Act, amended. Vol. 42, p. 1516; Vol. 4.;, p. 277. Credit or refund of any income, or war profits, erroneously assessed and collected, authorized.
From the foregoing it is pitifully apparent how grotesquely evil and corrupt the politicians --- heads of political lobbies --- have become, and the urgent need for the people of this country to stir their stumps and put an end to this criminality and usurpation under color of law, war-mongering, racketeering, and extortion.
