Meet Your Strawman -- For Bodhi

By Anna Von Reitz

I get questions like this on a regular basis and I am trying to funnel up-to-date answers through the State Coordinators, but there are still many people, like Bodhi, who are sorting through the copious notes on the historical "process" that brought us all forward to today on their own --- and they are getting confused.
This is unavoidable, because (1) we have had to discover the answers as we went, and (2) everything keeps changing. So far in the time that I have been writing my blog we have gone through two national level bankruptcies amounting to a liquidation in one case and a quick march reorganization in the other, both of which have impacts in terms of what we are doing and how things work.
So start right there. Because of the bankruptcies and reorganizations, what was appropriate and workable three years ago isn't anymore; the processes we were engaged in then won't work now. Do not pass "Go" and do not collect $200. On top of that, the processes for Federal Workers and Average Joes are unavoidably different in terms of what relief is available. We have three different populations here and everyone is in trouble, so we are doing our best to help. You have to be able to identify which group you are in and which processes apply.
The groups are: Federal Territorial Citizens (mainly military and dependents), Federal Municipal Citizens (mainly Federal Civil Service and dependents), and Joe Average Americans.
Fortunately or unfortunately, I have addressed the problems of all three groups in my writings and tried my best to make it clear when I am talking to or about Federal employees --- but it can get confusing.
Go to website and use the process outlined there. It is the simplest and the most up to date for Joe Average American and you won't get sidetracked into past practices or information that only applies to Federales.
Alternatively, skip all the verbiage and head directly to Article 928 on my website, where all the various documents have been collected and read through those. I believe that except for the Expatriation documents they are all self-explanatory.
The only thing "tricky" about the Expatriation documents is that in those, we are not talking about the expatriation of any living man or woman. We are expatriating corporations that were created and named after us --- these corporations are popularly known as "STRAWMEN".
The most important thing you need to know about your three "primary derivatives" that function as STRAWMEN is that they are all criminals as far as the Territorial United States Government is concerned, and they are all fugitives from justice subject to arrest and prosecution under commercial law.
In fact, the Territorial Government which operates under the vast bulk of the Federal Code, has defined all crimes as commercial crimes. They don't address you, the living man or woman, at all. They address only your pre-judged and pre-sentenced STRAWMEN. Since the STRAWMEN are guilty by definition there is really no need for a trial or a jury; the Territorial Judge can simply pass sentence and collect money or impose jail time.
The first STRAWMAN is a Cestui Que Vie ESTATE trust that is created to contain your assets. This is the one resulting in a Birth Certificate. This is the one that you "return" to the United States Secretary of the Treasury or the United States Secretary of Defense or the United States Secretary of State--- the same way that you would return an escaped prisoner to custody, using a Form 56 to make them responsible for IT.
The reason you do this is to make the government officials accountable to you for what they have created "in your name". They now hold the Fiduciary Responsibility for the entities they created and foisted off on you, not you, and if anyone summons THEM they will need to talk to the responsible officials.
This creates a settlement date when you leave the debts and the crimes of the Municipally-owned and operated STRAWMEN behind and re-flag your VESSELS as State Nationals operating under the Public Law of your State of the Union and under the actual Constitutions.
The criminally mismanaged entities and their debts as of the day you returned them are now back in the hands of those responsible.
You, meantime, have reflagged all such "VESSELS" associated with you, and declared their permanent domicile to be the land and soil of your State of the Union. This then removes the legal presumption that THEY are being operated out of Puerto Rico and under the Spanish Law of the Inquisition.
This leaves the US Government responsible for the debts and wrong-doing of the STRAWMEN they created and operated "in your name" and provides you with a clean slate and legitimate claim to be operating all your business affairs as an American under the Public Law of your State of the Union.
Neither the Territorial Government nor the Municipal Government can continue to treat your NAME(S) the same way or under the same legal presumptions. You have returned their Municipal PERSON(S) to them, and now operate exclusively as an American State National.
In case you missed the play, you have used their own system against them. They created these THINGS "in your name" and used them to hypothecate debt against you and your assets. Now you have officially returned their property to them and made them responsible for the debts accrued, while establishing your own newly refurbished American State entities, which look identical, but which are functioning under the Public Law of your State of the Union and which are American VESSELS owed every jot of the Constitutional guarantees.
So you have the old JOHN MAYNARD SMYTHE who was a Pauper owned and operated by the Municipal United States Government, cast ashore in Puerto Rico and operated under the Spanish Law of the Inquisition, and you have the new JOHN MAYNARD SMYTHE --- an American permanently domiciled in Ohio and operating under the Public Law of Ohio.
You have declared and recorded all this and given Notice of it and have the mailing receipts to prove that you carried through on it, so there is really no excuse for any judge or government official to presume anything more about it. You returned the Municipal STRAWMEN to the Municipal Government Officials responsible for them "without recourse".
And from now on, you have redefined what "JOHN MAYNARD SMYTHE" is and the law "HE" operates under.
There is nothing to stop the existence of two "JOHN MAYNARD SMYTHES" just as there is no stopping the existence of two "Albert Michael Donaldsons". The original Municipal PERSON was a "gift" to you, and you have every right to return the "gift" and to operate your own State franchises in your own name.
Understanding this is key to explaining it to a Judge or anyone else who comes after you and tries to force you to pay for the debts and crimes of a runaway municipal slave operating under a similar NAME.
"The DEFENDANT is a Municipal Corporation that I do not own or operate. I returned the ownership Certificate without recourse to a responsible Municipal Government Official effective July 11, 1966 (or whenever your actual birthday is) and named him to act as Fiduciary. These facts are all recorded and registered. If you have any problems related to IT, you will have to speak to him. I conduct all my business affairs privately under the Public Law of Ohio."
As you can see, the issue is to say, "No, thank you." to the "gift" of these Municipal Government franchises being operated "in your name", and to then redefine the political status of any STRAWMEN that are associated with you, as private American entities.
Question 1:
In Anna's "steps to take document" it suggests using a 9 digit code from the registred mail receipt to use as the TDA number however the format of the number on my receipt is just 20 numbers so it is not in the correct format. Where else can I find a 9 digit code to use in its place without accidentally using one that is already in use? I am stuck here because I can't even get the A4v stamp I need made without having this first and I need it to put in the paperwork as well of course.
It should say "Registered Mail Label" --- I am referring to the nine-digit number that appears on every red and white Registered Mail Label, but please note, we no longer use any "A4V" process because the UNITED STATES is now bankrupt and it is illegal to charge bankrupt entities.
Question 2:
On IRS Form 56 there is a box for "Identifying number" in the top row. I suspect this is my social security number however there is another box right after it labeled "Decedent’s social security no." which is also the strawman I would think. Do I put my social security number in both of these? This seems odd. Also is it with or without dashes? The way it is worded it seems like the first would be without dashes and the second with dashes but I want to be sure.
The "identifying number" is the File Number on the Birth Certificate.
Question 3:
If I am accepting the title (birth certificate) as "payment" as the secured party why am I then giving it back to the government via the Secretary? Isn't the whole point of doing this process to take it back from them through this process to put it into my ownership and control as the living man? If I accept it for value from the strawman then sign it over to the secretary don't they own it again now? Even worse don't they own it in a way that I can never retrieve it back (unlike it was originally) by doing this? In a previous explanation of this process I found it doesn't suggest this:
When you endorse THEIR Birth Certificate and return it to them, you are exonerating yourself from the debts of their bankrupt Municipal franchise. You do not benefit from holding any ownership interest in their Municipal franchise. It is being used as a means to extract value from you and your assets, so give it back to those who issued it and thereby say, "No, thanks" to their offer.
"Then turn the BC over and on the back anywhere write: Pay to the Order of the United States of America, U.S. Treasury. Without Recourse. And again, write— by: Your Upper and Lower Case Signature, and date it."
This returns the "value" of the Municipal Franchise --- the debt -- to the Territorial Treasury, where it has to be converted into credit held in your Name.
In a different set of instructions I have simply says to stamp it with the A4v stamp in this format:
By: (my name)
All Rights Reserved Without Recourse
Exemption ID: (my ss number no dashes)
Deposit to US Treasury the same to
(name and ss number)
Private Indemnity Bond # AMRI00001 Kentucky
Registered Treasury Acct. # (number)
What we are doing now is claiming the National Credit owed to each and every American and acting as the Priority Creditors in a bankruptcy. This is now being addressed to the "US Trustees" and they are being made liable for any failure to clear the books and return the credit owed to the Priority Creditors. What is debt for the Municipal franchises is credit owed to you.
What they have tried to do is to claim that you didn't claim your credit and other assets, thereby giving them a chance to "make a claim on abandonment" and to "redistribute" your wealth to every corner of the globe while leaving you still responsible for the debts of these bogus Municipal franchises.
We have said, "To Hell with that!" and shoved it all back in their faces.
So get on board, do your best to get your own political status corrected, and join your State Assembly.

  1. I'm pretty sure Anna has, in the past, said the birth certificates are our "evidences" of the frauds that have been perpetrated upon us. Please correct me if I am mistaken about her saying that.

    But I believe they are our proof of their fraud, especially in accord with the criminals' charges that are in/on the U.S. Corp's "Congr. Record" put there by Louis T. McFadden in 1933.
    All the info I have read says the charges are still active and "pending", having never been dealt with or removed.
    Sixty years went by and then James Trafficant brought them up again in 1993.
    Even so, the criminal charges for this debit/credit system of theft that they forced upon us criminally are still there after 86 years, along with criminally en-forcing the crimes while ON our land and soil, using Admiralty/Maritime/other foreign authority upon us, from which we have multiple exemptions.
    Both men's speeches are easy to find on the internet..
    these criminals
    made UP fake bogey-man criminals
    to attach to US
    who have committed no crimes.
    *They* have.
    They are the criminals, not the strawmen or us.
    We have lawful claims against them, the private men and women, and possibly others.

    I don't want to put my signature on their false records of their false claims in commerce. Does not that then draw me into their crimes? or at least make me now a knowing participant in the fraud system? where I don't wish to be?

    Why would I accept them calling me ANY kind of "VESSEL" when I am a living man or woman and soul being one of the people on the land and soil, dry land?

    Who cares about expatriating a fraud?
    Why would i patriate a criminal fraud onto the land and soil? And give it a permanent home here with us, the people?

    And, I don't want their "credit"! Credit is more fiction. Debit. Credit. Its part of the imaginary system used for the commission of their actual fraud upon us.
    Credit for what? The substance they stole from me and my family? What? Give us yet another promise of more fictioncredit as "remedy" for the stolen substanceland? Instead of giving us the land itself??!! The gold? The work? And more? No thanks!!! They already made that promise in 1933 to give us fictioncredit in exchange for the land/gold/substance. And What did they do but deny us access to that very credit they "gave" us.
    They wrote out House Joint Resolution 192, and put it into Public Law as our remedy and 5 years later they put the entire criminal fraud scheme under Silent Judicial Notice! taking oaths that if they were going to get a piece of the action (read:get to "claim" our stuff), they had to join the club and take an oath to neeeeever tell the sheeple what they were all doing. Anna had even said/indicated that she has told certain people she talked to about all this "I know you can't talk about it, but..."

    Look at what we're still having to go through to try to access the creditfiction nearly 100 years later!!! And yet, *Now* they're saying we abandoned it? When they took oaths to not tell us it even existed? And oaths to use "special" admiralty on us without telling us that *they* stole *our* stuff and *they* are calling *US* a/the criminal??!!

    No, they can jamb their creditfiction up their snoots. I don't wish to sign their fraudpapers or be a ship for them or be responsible for patriating a criminal onto the land and soil with us, the people, even if its a fake one. Why would I? Its all fraud. Its criminal activity from the very beginning.
    Nor do I wish for yet ANOTHER promise of creditfiction in exchange for my and my family's private property and our portion of the public property that belongs to us.

    Didn't Anna say that one way to claim our substance, (not their credit,) is to use Title 50, section 7 (c) and (e)?... I skim-read it, but don't know BAR language, so I could not understand what I was reading.

    1. Much appreciate all your radical honesty, clear conviction/s and extensive articulation in all of this, good boots!

    2. Hugs chef.
      I have appreciated, and have learned much, from your comments and your very on-point, well-thought-out questions for the past couple of years.

  2. I do have to say though, that the system they (purported to) have set up isn't all bad... If they would have actually *done* what they said they were going to do it would be a really good system for some people. And also, in a grouping of people, there has to be a way to respectfully take care of the people who actually are unable to take care of themselves. It is a great system for that.

    Its just that its not for everybody... And we need to have a choice, not have guns waved in our faces and worse it if we don't wish to participate. So while some people don't want the responsibilities associated with freedom and sovereignty, others aren't suited to being forced into a nanny state. Should be our choice. But no. They lied to us for one thing which is a deal breaker right there. And instead of using the system to honorably care for people who need it, it's been used dishonorably to rob everybody.

    1. goodboots....that has been my main bitch about this is all about choices.!! But how can we make a choice if the STATE has already made that choice for us...!! That one "presumed " choice made "for us" by the STATE, without our knowledge or consent, is the foundational problem for all our other choices in life...!! In other words, it is almost impossible to make any good choices after that for our benifit...Until our judicial system recoginizes TWO SEPARATE and totally independent statuses, made by our "free choice", we will always be presumed to be "FICTIONS at law"..!!
      By the way, Anna says that they can only charge us if something is actually other words if you actually hurt or injured someone or property...!!

      In a world based on "commercial world", without offering even one "common law court", no court can or has any authority to charge anyone with murder, rape, theft or any other " Mala in se" crime....they can't have it both ways..!! If they want commerce , then everything is about money and business....not about crime...!! Fraud is the biggest crime going and no one even wants to take a police report on it....!! How many people are losing their homes due to completely fraudulent and absolutely criminal fraudulent paperwork filed at the county recorders office and no one says boo...!!
      What I really want to know is how does a man or woman on the LAND get REMEDY from a "DICTATORSHIP"...!! Anna is under the false presumption that we actually love in some kind of Rebublic of free people...!! Nice fairly tale...!! Show me anyone in govt that actually work for the people ...otherwise start giving us REMEDY when dealing with a dictatorship....!!

    2. James thank you for pointing this out again,I did all the stuff Anna talks about doing per her Article 928, the end result my home and land stole from us by the the sheriff who was fully aware of my status change but threaten us anyway with his assault team and forced us out.You said it..."Fraud is the biggest crime going and no one even wants to take a police report on it.... "How many people are losing their homes due to completely fraudulent and absolutely criminal fraudulent paperwork filed at the county recorders office and no one says boo" ............
      To this day I never went to court in this judicial state New Jersey, all the paperwork I put on the record was completely ignored, did not get my note back so they have my home and note and the sheriff finishes up the fraud, my home stolen in May two months ago.
      I am here trying to learn what to do but these thieves do not care what you do because they have guns, bullet proof vest and a army just for stealing Americans homes.
      What can I do do to get my home back,please help.

  3. Did anyone do the birth certificate process to see if it works or not?

  4. How can i do this process. If anyone can help with this reply back.

    1. Afro: scroll down to the bottom right of this post and fill out the form for assistance.

  5. For Anna: July 17, 2019 goldfish report: The GoldFish Report No. 374 - Red and White Dragon Interview: Global Currency Reset. Benjamin Fulford and Red Dragon agreed that Trump needs to bankrupt the USA Corporation to make the cabal go away. I wanted to comment to say they were already bankrupt but comments were disallowed.

    My point is that these two gentlemen with their financial knowledge are either ignorant of the bankruptcy or are part of the gig to continue under a different agenda. Red dragon is saying they hope for a major announcement in September.

    I don't follow goldfish on a regular basis, but keep an eye on what is happening from time to time.

    1. "My point is that these two gentlemen with their financial knowledge are either ignorant of the bankruptcy or are part of the gig to continue under a different agenda."

      Yep Dan, just sounds like more "kerfuffle", used to herd the sheeple into fake "consent" that would allow them to go ahead and usher in this new system that isn't new but was started back in 1302 with the ROMAN "Papal Bull" whereby the (mad?) "Pope"/"Papa" claimed he/she/it? owned the world and everything in it.
      For "jesus", of course.

      With the glut of info coming out now about such things as the "Ninth Circle Altar"?, adrenochrome, and so forth, along with the info that the former ROMAN "Papal Bulls" were or may have been written on the skin of people, as Anna also has disclosed, then truly (IMO) your point accords with all the info that Shelby and so many other researchers and true journalists have been compiling and sharing that leads to the 'presumptive' conclusion that whatever they are working on, in the end it won't be for our benefit.

      We have to remove ourselves from them.

      That Ben Fulford is acting like he doesn't know about the USINCs bankruptcies is truly funny. ...since he has always claimed he is on the cutting edge of worldwide "intel". Oo!

      So for me it's:
      "Buh'bye Ben".
      ...and one more psyop-er "exposed and eliminated"?

      Thanks for the heads-up dan.

      by: jan-marie on bluebird acre, the living woman and soul

    2. I am happy to share the concepts of what I am doing that I certainly DO NOT say is the/a "remedy" or even worth reading about.. All it is is simply what I am *doing*...that makes sense to me from my research spanning over the past 5 years. So that this is my disclaimer regarding someone's decision to use what I write or say. I do hold and retain the lawful common law copyrights so that nobody else tries to claim it as their own, since if they do that, they could bastardize it and change it so that it HARMS people.
      All is: 'then as now and now for then, and on into the future, uninterrupted'.

      First, I fully corrected my status using many peoples' freely-shared work and info.

      All i know is i am a living woman and soul and i demand that my private, and my portion of the public, property that was stolen from me be returned immediately. All of it, along with all of the gain, increase, and enrichment obtained from the unauthorized use of it.
      It all belongs to me. And all of my rights, statuses, property/other have been held in the American common law trust known as the DeclofIndep, from the very beginning and cannot be used without my consent.

      It's a simple thing:
      I didn't say they could use it.
      They specifically went to elaborate efforts to hide their use of it behind "imaginary criminals"?/other that they made up to attach "charges" to,...
      and gave to me *AS* a gift so they could rob me???? NO!
      And said I was DEAD? No!
      So they could falsely probate my "estate" when I was a few days of age?? No!
      Under SILENT "Judicial" /(private Corporate tribunal) Notice????

      No! to all of it. Every bit of it.

      *While* using silent judicial notice, claim that I gave consent, volunteered or authorized it???
      Now just how would I do that?

      They THINK they sold my property because they made up some "documents". No.
      No, they didn't sell it, they committed a crime.
      I know this.
      So do they.

      My property never left my possession.
      They committed crimes.
      My property never changed hands for even a split second.
      It remained mine and remains mine, and I'm not worried about it because I notified them multiple times that they were committing fraud and more;
      I have now claimed their property to the full extent that it is lawful.

      Not a crime?
      Where's the INITIATING commercial contract that I autographed under full disclosure?
      There isn't one.

      When did I conscionably become a merchant, sailor, subject/other?

      Who can dispute it?
      No one. There is no INITIATING contract that *I* know of.
      Is there one? Where is it?

      Well then, Did they declare war so they can use Admiralty on me?
      No. Corporations can't declare war.

      There is the truth.

      Now, (this last part is pretty much word-for-word, from various people's work)
      1. Does any man or woman have a lawful claim that is superior to mine, the living woman and soul being one of the people to whom the stolen property lawfully belongs?

      2. If such claim of superior claim exists, I demand that proof of it be entered on and for the public record within the next 30/(other, your choice) days so that I have an opportunity on and for the public record to either publicly recognize it and receive it to be authentic or to publicly reject it to be fraud.

      3. If no such lawful claim is so entered within 30/(other) days, then it will be deemed by all to stand forever on and for the public record that no such claim exists or has ever existed and that all claims, past, present and future are false claims and are fraud and I demand that: (whatever you desire/demand the criminal(s) deliver to you in order to make you whole again, including all actual costs, plus the waste of your precious time/other.)

      Also, since I specified that I am in common law authority, using registered mail to send this to AG Barr did not, (as I presently believe it usually does) create a "financial" "security" in their fraud system that they can "trade".

    3. {((((((James pansini)))))))
      The comment above is for you. I got in the wrong section.

  6. Anna, I did the "big red stamp" on the IRS payment coupons twice; Nov 2018 and again in March 2019. 1099A, 1040V, 1096. It didn't seem to work for me as well as it did for others. I did get one account zero'd out but they have not sent any other responses to the other coupons. Is that because of the bankruptcy?
    What about the 1099a we filled out and in the description of property box we wrote and claimed; "ASSUMED NAMES RELATED TO TRUST ACCOUNT 31 U.S.C. §1332, BY BENEFICIARY"? I somehow cannot locate this code now, and wonder if this is still applicable?

  7. I am very thankful for Anna's response and in contact with Shirley through email. I have a handful of other very specific questions to ask then I will write a very detailed article myself to publish at my website and become part of this network through my state contact she has links to on the maine republic website. Thank you to everyone involved, Paul, Anna and Shirley

  8. Point me to the paperwork that is necessary to turn in my straw man. I see the area where I can get help with the paperwork. Just so you know, I'm in the 2nd group. I work for the Quasi-government postal service. I understand there is a different process for me.

    1. You need to create a username or Paul will delete your comment (stated rules). The paperwork is on Anna's website.

    2. I tried to create a name and it defaulted back to unkown. I'll try again. Where on the website is the paperwork? I tried the search and couldn't find it.

    3. The unknown is Lynn S.

  9. Lynn: Just put your name in the first line of what you write and you will be fine.
    The paperwork is here:

    It's based on Anna's article number 928 here:
