Is Nancy Pelosi Roman? Catholic? Or Roman-Catholic?


By Anna Von Reitz

When I say something like, "in the broader spectrum"--- our language is so incompetent and wiggly that I immediately invite alert people to wonder: "Broader than what?" and "In which spectrum was that?"

This is in part what I found so worthwhile in Russell-J:Gould's work: the reminder of how imprecise our language is and how much of communication depends on trust and on assumptions.

For example, is Nancy Pelosi Roman? Or Catholic? Or Roman-Catholic?

Who knows? One can only "judge by the fruits".

Certainly, no sincere follower of Jesus could so easily ignore the mandate not to kill, especially as it applies to millions of innocent babies.

The actual doctrine of the Roman Catholic Church is absolutely against killing (ritual or otherwise) of anyone and against abortion, too, which should make members of the Roman Catholic Church proud of the stand that their Church has taken.

Yet at the same time, there's Nancy Pelosi --- as well as other members of Congress-- pretending to be Roman Catholics, and suffering no penalty at all for rubber stamping millions of abortions and authorizing for the payment of all this slaughter using public funds?

Doesn't add up, does it?

And then we hear about there being a "man-boy sacrament" allowed by the Church? Hello? Sex between men and under-age boys being condoned by the Roman Catholic Church? And represented as a sacrament???

That doesn't add up as anything "Christian", either....

Then we are confronted with literally thousands of accusations of pedophilia and worse by the clergy of the Roman Catholic Church.

Again, this doesn't make any sense!

Unless.... we are talking about the Roman "Church" instead, which has always been pagan, and hidden in plain view in the Office of the Pontiff and sometimes even referred to as "the Secular Religion".

"Secular Religion" is another oxymoron like "Private Citizen" or "Sovereign Citizen".

Rome in its heyday allowed and practiced every possible form of belief, witchcraft, idolatry, and god-worship known to man. Constantine brought all that with him to the Council of Nicea, and basically sued for a "deal" with the Christian Church of his day. He'd make peace with them if they would form a partnership with Rome.

In this way, the original Christian Church was polluted and at the same time enriched and left in peace, the quid pro quo being that they would work for Rome and Romans who were members of the "Church" could continue to worship their pagan gods privately without interference.

So it has been that the Citizens of Rome have enjoyed special rights and privileges in the Roman Catholic Church, and the Whore of Babylon known as Ashtoreth, Astarte, Isis, Cybele, and Columbia ---yes, as in District of Columbia --- grew up and flourished side by side with the Christian version of the "Roman" "Catholic" "Church".

And that, my dears, is how we can have Black Masses celebrated in Vatican City, and Serpent Auditoriums donated for Papal Audiences, and what appear to be Catholic Clergy raping children, because according to the Old Religion, sex is a sacrament, and all forms of sex are "sacraments".
Those individuals doing this aren't Christian. They are Satanists and they worship The Father of All Lies. What bigger Whopper than pretend to be a Christian priest, when you are actually working for Old No Name himself?

My heart goes out to the many millions of loyal Catholic Church members and to those who have dedicated their lives to teaching the Gospel and living it in their day to day lives, who are having to deal with this horrible denouement and "Apocalypse". I regret the damage this must cause to their faith and to their peace of mind.

Remember that if you hold fast to the teachings of Yeshuah and to his leadership in all things, the faulty institutions of men don't matter; their failings and betrayals however horrible they may be, cannot dim the love that binds us and the Holy Spirit that moves us.

This afternoon amid unconfirmed reports that the Italian Government has seized Vatican City and overturned the 1929 Lateran Treaty granting Vatican City independent international city-state status--- making it a separate country with a separate government inside Italy---similar to the status that both Washington, District of Columbia and NEW YORK CITY have claimed within our borders, I realize the likely necessity that our country and its government will have to do the same thing.

In our case this will involve revoking Article I, Section 8, Clause 17 of The Constitution of the United States and permanent dismantling of the Municipal United States Government run as an oligarchy by the members of the Municipal United States Congress.

I am also thinking that the removal of the center of the spiderweb in Italy greatly expedites the removal of other centers of the web in Belgium, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Switzerland, and Lichtenstein where major corporate headquarters have been established for control purposes, to commandeer banking and transportation and record keeping and postal service functions worldwide.

Here, in The United States of America, the hub of their operations has been centered in the District of Columbia, originally set aside as a common diplomatic setting and meeting ground for all the States--- and it has especially been headquartered in the Municipality of Washington, DC.

Though the Roman Catholic Church was saddled almost from its inception with the impossible task of --literally-- serving two Masters, and its work has had two very separate and different outcomes as a result, one hideous, one sublime, they have accomplished amazing things.

I know that as all of this unravels and all the dirt caused by the "Roman Church" comes to light, the outrage of the rank and file people worldwide will swell and the detractors of the Roman Catholic Church will quickly try to capitalize on this debacle to discredit all Christians --- but, remember this doesn't have anything to do with actual Christians. It has to do with the pagan Romans slyly pretending to be Christians.

So getting back to Nancy Pelosi....

For the Texians:


By Anna Von Reitz

There are three (3) kinds of legal fictions and three (3) categories of legal fiction "persons" and you had all better learn them: unincorporated, corporate, and incorporated. 

The only ones exercising true sovereignty (freewill) are unincorporated --- like your own Given Name at the moment of your birth.  "John Lyle Dullard" starts out as an unincorporated "person" belonging as private property to a man living on the soil jurisdiction of his birth.  This is the level of the republics --- all of them. 

At his birth, little "John" also inherits an identity as a "Texan" or if you prefer, a "Texian".  This is a corporate "Person" meaning only that he was born on the land and within the defined borders of "Texas" ---which is a "corporate" but unincorporated legal fiction existing in the international land jurisdiction. This is the level of the States --- all of them.

A business, organization, or enterprise is unavoidably "corporate" the moment it takes a name, but not necessarily "incorporated". 

The land and soil taken together define one's nationality: John Lyle Dullard is a Texian.   He can stop right there and live peaceably as a State National and never have any duty to serve any government whatsoever.  Or, he can choose to join the Texas Jural Assembly, serve as a Juror, and act as a State Citizen.   It's an individual choice, but unless enough people volunteer to serve as Jurors, "Texas" ceases to exist.  The Public and Organic Law and Constitutional guarantees owed to Texas then cease to exist, also.

Lack of a functioning Texas State Jural Assembly is why people are routinely denied their constitutional rights and guarantees.  It's the fundamental reason that these foreign Territorial and Municipal Corporations have been able to come in and wag the dog.

If "John Lyle Dullard" wants to travel or do business outside of Texas he will have to deal with other people living in other States.  Remember that in America, every State is a Nation, so for us, the words "interstate" and "international" are synonymous. For our purposes, it doesn't matter if we are conducting business in Oregon or France, because both are "international" venues.

In order to conduct business in Oregon, little "John" also has a "Capacity" that looks just the same as his unincorporated Name: "John Lyle Dullard"--- but this version "resides" temporarily in "The State of Texas", (international sea jurisdiction).  The State of Texas is supposed to be created by the People of Texas (Texas Jural Assembly Members are The People of Texas) and supposed to belong to the people who live in Texas, but is instead being operated by foreign governments as an incorporated "Person" "representing" Texas in the same way an actor can "represent" someone else in a play.

The corporate version, "The State of Texas" applies for a charter and constitution from the Texas Jural Assembly , has a CEO called a "Governor", a Secretary, and a Treasurer. Also, like any other corporate entity, "The State of Texas" is bound by the laws and customs of the entity granting it a charter.  If it is chartered by Texas and the People living there, it functions under Texas Public Law and the State Constitution, but if not.... it functions under the foreign law of whatever other "Body Politic" is granting it a charter to exist.

The big question is--- where is the interloping "State of Texas" that is representing "The State of Texas" being chartered?

In our American Government, this entity is supposed to be set up directly by Texas under Texas Public Law (including the Constitution that applies), and is supposed to be operating as "The State of Texas".   Please note: The State of Texas is "corporate" but not "incorporated". 

Instead, since the Civil War, foreign incorporated entities deceptively calling themselves "the State of Texas" but actually being incorporated in places like Scotland or France or in one of the other States, like Delaware, have been "representing" "The State of Texas" while operating under their own "private" corporate law which is in fact foreign to Texas and Texians.  Please note -- these foreign entities are all "incorporated" by foreign governments and have their own kind of "Governor", "Secretary of State of State" and so on, that people mistake as their own officials. 

Finally, there is another layer of incorporated "personhood" that enables "John" to operate in the global jurisdiction of the air: JOHN LYLE DULLARD, JOHN L. DULLARD, JOHN DULLARD.  These are ACCOUNTS belonging to various kinds of foreign incorporated entities run by the STATE OF TEXAS, which is part of the hegemony run by the Pope/Pontiff/HRE. 

These Municipal Franchises are also incorporated entities that are supposed to be chartered by The State of Texas created by Texas Jural Assembly ---- but as you can see, "The State of Texas" that Texas is owed is Missing in Action, and the foreign-chartered interlopers doing business as "the State of Texas" are chartering all those Municipal corporations, instead.  

So it goes like this:

"John Lyle Dullard" = unincorporated man of the soil, one of the living "people" of Texas, a State National, who may or may not join the Texas Jural Assembly, and therefore may or may not act as a State Citizen, too.

"John Lyle Dullard" = corporate man of the land, a temporary "resident" of The State of Texas, one of the People of Texas, engaged in international trade (this is the way it is supposed to work).

"John Lyle Dullard" = corporate man of the sea, a temporary "resident" of the (foreign) incorporated "State of Texas", claiming foreign "domicile" as an "expatriot" of Texas engaged in international trade (This is the way it has in fact been working since the Civil War, and exclusively this way since the 1930's---unless you rebut this "presumption" and make explicit record of your claim otherwise.).

"JOHN LYLE DULLARD" = incorporated man of the air, a temporary "resident" of the (foreign) State of Texas and incorporated under "State of Texas" rather than "The State of Texas" (as it all should be), operating in international commerce --- business between two incorporated entities.  

__________________

Correcting this Mess all hinges on people voluntarily acting as Texas State Assembly Jurors, and re-chartering "The State of Texas" under Texas Public Law.  Then all the ownerships get straightened out and the people living in Texas not only own the land and soil, but also get control of this crazy-making fraud mis-characterizing everyone as "expatriots" ---- all the assets of Texas come home, the Public and Organic Law is again enforceable, and the people who live in Texas are in control of their lives and property again.

Please note that the same or similar names can be applied to many "persons" and that "persons" result from the "capacities" in which one is acting: you can act as an unincorporated man (called a "Natural Person"), a corporate Person (State National or State Citizen), an incorporated Person (State of State Citizen) or as an incorporated PERSON (STATE OF STATE CITIZEN), all under the same basic name.  

Please note the three kinds of "persons" -- unincorporated, corporate, and incorporated -- and try not to get confused.  Some former prison inmates discovered a small part of the fraud and thanks to our work reviving the Public Law, were able to secure their freedom under it.  They are now rampaging around giving everyone a totally skewed and incorrect theory of how and why this works. It isn't because "incorporated Persons" are "invalid".  It's because once the State Jural Assemblies start to operate, the actual Public Law reappears, and men can function a smen again and can access their guarantees under the Public and Organic Law-- including the proper Constitution--- again. 

There is no "Public Law" without a "Public" and no "We, the People of The United States of America", either, without State Jural Assemblies.  And if we don't construct and operate our "corporate" State of State businesses dba "The State of Georgia" and "The State of Iowa", etc., then we have no established means other than our State itself to conduct business and exercise the powers that were delegated to our own corporate businesses "The States of States" under the Federal Constitution.  

All of these functions, all these international treaties, all our foundational rights and prerogatives as a country depend on the existence and functioning of our State Jural Assemblies.  The power to straighten this unholy mess out and to re-charter the State's own State of State also lies with the State Jural Assemblies and nowhere else. 

Nobody can "do it for us" and there are a lot of foreign governments trying to keep us from waking up and attending to our own business, so that they can continue to operate the foreign "State of State" fraud and profit themselves at our expense.

No doubt this is confusing. That's how they have kept us disoriented and chasing our tails for so long---similar names deceits, false assumptions, impostors, stolen identities.  Nonetheless, we can all read, and with diligence can apply the information to our own situation.  Those of us who are willing to claim back our rightful and natural identities can function either as State Nationals and walk away from any further duty, or we can function as State Citizens and join our State Jural Assembly and help straighten this mess up.

Pernicious Ignorance -- For Richard


By Anna Von Reitz

Just trying to come up with a male equivalent to the epithet your pal Deegan threw at me, so you could have a better appreciation of how that feels and what it means and just how "low-life" your buddy is.  Feel free to take the message for what it is and edit as you like.  I have had to deal with a lot of stupid people on this journey and even some truly wrong-headed fools who are incapable of learning, but I draw the line on trying to work with those that advocate violence and can't keep a civil tongue in their heads.

I never implied that "everyone's family was Christian", but those that are, came from only two major sources: Eastern Orthodox and Roman Catholicism.  Since my family came from Western Europe, their familiarity with the teachings of Yeshuah came via the Roman Catholic Church and for quite a number of centuries in that part of the world, virtually everyone who was Christian was Roman Catholic.   These are facts so obvious and so widely known that it never occurred to me that I would have to explain the context of my comment to any adult. Nor that there is a profound difference between a Lutheran and a Jesuit.

The "documented proof" is right there in front of your face---and everyone else's.  Look up the Great Seal of either the United States or the United States of America.  What is the shield being used?  The Belcher shield Coat of Arms.  They are part of our array, not the Queen's.  In the world of international government and politics, there is absolutely no doubt whose "recognized sovereignty" was used to represent the sovereignty of this country.  In the realm of Monarchs and other Grand Poobahs, only those with "standing" are allowed to play on their chess board.  As I have explained many times, in order to engage in international trade and commerce back in the 1700's, America needed to be represented by someone with the credentials the rest of the world would accept, and so William Belcher became that person and his Coat of Arms was extended to cover the American fleets.  I also explained the source of his "recognized sovereignty" ---- the Norman Conquest ---- and the fact that he extended similar "recognized sovereignty" to all Americans.

The problem for you and your buddies is that you don't understand the complexities of the verbiage you are using, so you are confusing things.  You are confusing the basic issue of the "sovereignty" of individual living men with the "recognized sovereignty" of Monarchs and nations and Heads of State. And also failing to appreciate all the attendant history and what it means.  So when an ape-man like Deegan goes and beats his chest and says, "I am sovereign!  I am king of me!"  ---- nobody is contesting that, and frankly, nobody cares.  William Belcher even made it possible for a low-life idiot scum like Deegan to claim "sovereignty in his own right" and exercise the other kind of "sovereignty" I am talking about.  But certain people are so ignorant that they don't even follow the gist of the conversation and so miss the message entirely. Americans were given a great gift by William Belcher who did not seek to rule over them, but who --- much to the consternation of the other players --- set Americans free, even as William the Conqueror set his own ancestors free of feudal bondage. 

The struggle that we are engaged in is basically a struggle between those who want a system of feudalism under a king and those who want a system that honors the "Natural and Unalienable Rights"  of every man, woman, and child.   The Belchers already and long ago came down on the side of "Natural and Unalienable Rights" -- and paid with their blood for it. 

I not only understand the concept of "Persons" I have been teaching that concept and all the rest that goes with that concept for many years to many people.  If you had bothered to read what I have written on the topic you would know that. 

So it is time for you to get a lesson --- there are in fact three kinds of legal fiction "persons --- unincorporated, corporate, and incorporated.  There are indeed "States" and I invite you to deny that the conceptualization of "England", "Scotland" and "Ireland" is necessary prior to the conceptualization of "Great Britain" and the further conceptualization of the "United Kingdom".  You and your friends are like school kids who just "discovered" the concept of "Great Britain" and want to deny the existence of  everything that went before and everything that came after. Even worse, you want to deny the logical sequence of the developments just described. You want to put the UK in front of Scotland, for example, and it just doesn't work that way.  I am not the "ignorant" one on the page, Richard.  I am the one who directed your attention to The Definitive Treaty of Peace in the first place, remember?  Uh-duh?

Payseurs Revisited


By Anna Von Reitz

I have been bombarded with people all alarmed about the "Payseurs" -- the legendary 'family of' supposedly; but, as I already explained, "Payseurs" is not a name, it is a title: Purser, or Paymaster. And in this case, the Pursers in question are the Paymasters of the French Army. A Hereditary Office under the system of Bastardy within the "Holy" "Roman" "Empire".

So, get on your thinking caps. 
How did the "Payseurs" aka "Pursers" become so rich? By using the "French" Army in America, aka, "United States" Army, which Britain obligingly subcontracted to France because the French Territorial Government actually owns the British Territorial Government.

Oh, what a tangled web we weave....

Essentially, what they did, was they horned in our international land jurisdiction functions after the Civil War and claimed (falsely) to own the Railroads and all things connected to the Railroads. They set up and profited from vast railroad monopolies and consolidated this "protected industry" as a trust plus holding companies, similar to the way the modern day scions of these same entities use the epithet, "National Security Interest" to protect their interests and keep their nasty activities secret.

My point to you is that the interlocking trust directorate that "owns" and controls all this is not the private property of the Spring (aka Springstein) family, nor any family with the surname "Payseur". 

Its being operated by the (French) United States Army, which shouldn't even be here in any such capacity at all and all that nasty business taking place down in North Carolina via the officers of the the old DOD/NSA lash-up, is ultimately controlled through Benelux, through Switzerland, and finally, Rome.
There it is again, the Great Spider, the Municipal Government Polyglot, spinning the aforementioned tangled web.

All we really need to do is finish our State Jural Assemblies, call a Continental Congress, officially nationalize all the railroads and banks, break up the interlocking trust directorates for vast international crimes and as products of monopoly interest, and return the credit and profit where it is due, to the States and the People, who have been harmed by their own employees and by Trustees and Governments obligated to serve in Good Faith.

Of course, those who have profited from all this fraud --- and there are many --- are loath to give it up and don't know how the world turn without them. In some part, some of them are truly alarmed, and not just for their own skins.
After all, the British Territorial Government subcontracted French/Benelux/Swiss/Rome "United States Army" has been operating this way for a long time without any oversight, and certainly without the knowledge of the Americans.

This particular "United States Army" which seized control of all the Railroads and Banks in this country and created this monster, which cheated us and the Arab nations, is now shut down for 90 days awaiting receipt of a new French Territorial Charter. 
It all needs to be busted, and those responsible need to be prohibited from creating, operating, shareholding, managing, or profiting from any corporation ever again. 
When a country grants a charter to incorporate a business, it is granting a privilege. That privilege must be revoked when an incorporated entity is caught red-handed in criminal activity, and those responsible must not be allowed to abuse the privilege.

As you will note, France and Germany are suddenly all chummy and "taking a stand" against "nationalism" in Britain and the United States, Canada, Japan, Australia, and wherever else people wish to have control of their own names, labor, bodies, and public and private assets again.

I suppose that they are hoping that the German People have been sufficiently beaten down and psychologically damaged and "guilted" until they are afraid to say, "Tschuss!" to the EU, and that the rank and file French will be bought off by a few extra EUs, too. (So far they have been offered the equivalent of one decent bicycle per year, per family, to go along with this crazy criminal scheme.)

One is reminded of the Borg of Star Trek fame, as the leaders of certain countries --- Merkel, Macron, and Trudeau --- hypnotically repeat their mantras:
"Cow farts damage the environment. We must diaper the cows of Germany and France. Farmers must pay. Everyone must pay to breathe. Don't you all feel guilty for living? Give us all your land and your names and your time and your money and your children and live in eternal bogus debt as slaves for us, resistance is futile....resistance is futile...."

When is everyone going to wake up and realize that all of this is nothing but a gigantic criminal usurpation of power by crooks and dishonest employees?

We hired them. We can fire them. 
We don't have to wait for new elections. We can point to the 50,000 ways they have betrayed our National Trusts, embezzled our money, lied to us, proposed to give away our national sovereignty "for" us with the "Paris Accords", counterfeited our money, stolen our identities, bilked friendly nations in our names for their profit, and the list goes on---so, arrest the filthy crooks as they did in Iceland. 
And not just the bankers--- the "payseurs"--- the paymasters who are keeping all this fraud rolling.

State of Emergency: Urge Trump to Declare Cartels International Terrorist Orgs and Deploy Troops

State of Emergency: Urge Trump to Declare Cartels International Terrorist Orgs and Deploy Troops
by Oath Keepers Founder Stewart Rhodes

CRITICAL ALERT AND CALL TO ACTION ON BORDER CRISIS:
Oath Keepers and patriots, it is essential that you contact President Trump NOW and urge him to take decisive action!
CNN is reporting that President Trump may be on the verge of declaring a national emergency on our southern border and using military assets to build the wall (using the Army Corps of Engineers).   According to CNN:
“The White House is preparing a draft proclamation for President Donald Trump to declare a national emergency along the southern border and has identified more than $7 billion in potential funds for his signature border wall should he go that route, according to internal documents reviewed by CNN.”
CNN further reports that the draft proclamation includes the following language:
“The massive amount of aliens who unlawfully enter the United States each day is a direct threat to the safety and security of our nation and constitutes a national emergency,”
….”Now, therefore, I, Donald J. Trump, by the authority vested in me by the Constitution and the laws of the United States of America, including the National Emergencies Act (50 U.S.C 1601, et seq.), hereby declare that a national emergency exists at the southern border of the United States,”
That is what President Trump needs to do, but we need to urge him to go a step further.
Call the White House at:  202-456-1111
Email the White House here
Urge him to go all the way, declaring an emergency not just for a criminal and humanitarian crisis, but to also declare the following:
  1.  Declare the Mexican drug cartels to be international terrorist organizations and invading fourth-generation MILITARY enemies of the United States in the war on terror. The cartels also directly aid the infiltration of the United States by other international terrorist organizations/military enemies such as ISIS and Al-Qaeda.
  2. Deploy the full weight of the U.S. military to secure the entire 2,000 mile border with Mexico.   Even with a wall, securing the border will take military boots on the ground, using active duty infantry and National Guard to secure the border, just as President Wilson did in 1916, and also calling forth the Militia (we the people) under 10 U.S.C. secs. 252 and 253.
WHY:  
A.  President Trump should declare the Mexican drug cartels (and their Columbian cartel allies) to be international terrorist organizations and fourth-generation military enemies of the United States because that is exactly what they are.  
The current definition of “terrorism” in federal law is the use of force, or the threatened use of force, to change the behavior of a government or a population. That is what the cartels do, every day, both in Mexico (and in Central and South America) and also inside the United States. The cartels are infamous for taking over territory, including local governments and law enforcement, through their use of terror, with the infamous “offer” of “plato o promo” (“silver or lead”), which means local government officials, law enforcement officers, and residents can either take the cartels bribe and do as they command, or they will get a bullet. The cartels use the same methods that the Taliban, Al Qaeda, and ISIS have used to take over territory.
By using such terrorism, the cartels are the de-facto rulers of much of Mexico, especially Northern Mexico, and are rapidly becoming the de-facto rulers on American soil, taking over U.S. territory just like they do in Mexico, especially in the border towns and counties.   In fact, during the Obama Administration, the U.S. government posted signs on federal land in Southern Arizona warning Americans that it was not safe to venture onto that land because of cartel violence. One sign even advised Americans to instead only set foot on BLM land north of I-8 in Arizona- conceding the reality that the cartels controlled the land south of I-8 and effectively ceding control of that American soil to the cartels. Instead of rooting the cartels out, and securing the border, the Obama Admin simply warned Americans not go onto cartel land on American soil!
Further, because the cartels now control land on both sides of the border, the drug cartels now effectively control the border itself between the United States and Mexico, and are making a killing (sometimes literally) by demanding thousands of dollars from each and every illegal alien or “asylum seeking refugee” that wants to cross. Because the border is not secure, and is effectively in cartel hands, they can bring across anyone they want, or anything they want, including other international terrorists or weapons of mass destruction, as well as women and children forced into sex slavery by cartel brutality only rivaled by ISIS.

All of the above points to the fact that the cartels are paramilitary, unconventional warfare enemies of the United States who are invading and taking over American soil.  And they are doing so in a far more effective manner than Pancho Villa ever did with his cross-border raids that prompted President Wilson to deploy the U.S. Army and National Guard on the border and to send U.S. troops into Mexico, under the command of General “Black Jack” Pershing to hunt down Pancho Villa and his men.

Those same cartels also smuggle in known international terrorists and illegal aliens from terror sponsoring nations. (See video below starting at 2:06)


B.  President Trump will be in a vastly stronger legal position as Commander-in-Chief by declaring the cartels to be international terrorist organizations and non-state unconventional military enemies of the United States.  

Such a declaration will bring this crisis into the realm of military operations, not just enforcement of criminal statutes.  it would simply recognize the military reality that is properly and squarely within the constitutional powers and duties of the President, as Commander-in-Chief, to defend the nation and repel invasions by such foreign military enemies. Those powers and duties are enumerated within the Constitution itself, in Articles I and II.

Article 1, Section 8 grants Congress the power to raise armies and provide for a Navy, and to “make rules for the government and regulation of the land and naval forces” which Congress has, with such rules delegating to the President wide authority and discretion over use of the military. Article 1, Section 8 also grants Congress the power to “provide for calling forth the militia to execute the laws of the union, suppress insurrections and repel invasions” which Congress has done, in numerous statutes that delegate to the President the authority to find that such conditions exist and to take decisive military action to respond to them.

Those statutes also authorize the President to use active duty military as well as militia for those ends.  Some of those statutory grants of authority to use the military are constitutionally suspect – such as using the standing Army to execute the law of the Union or to suppress insurrections, rather than using the militia as Article 1, Section 8 provides for. But when it comes to repelling an invasion, that is the primary purpose of an Army and Navy, and they can be used for that purpose right along with the militia, so in this context of the military invasion by the cartels, the President is well within his constitutional powers to use active duty troops.

Article II, further, makes the President the Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces of the United States as well as of the militia when called forth into national service. In addition, since 911, Congress has on numerous occasions expressly delegated to the Executive branch the decision of making findings of what groups are international terrorist organizations (and therefor unconventional, non-state actor military enemies) in the ongoing international war on terrorism.

Declaring the cartels to be international terrorist organizations/non-state actor military enemies triggers all of the above constitutional powers and duties, as well as all of the enabling statutes that Congress has passed over our history since the signing of the Constitution. Those enabling statutes, especially those passed after the Civil War, during the Cold War, and post 9-11, delegate to the President the decision to use military force to answer such unconventional military threats, as well as to suppress insurrections and to execute the laws of the Union.

President Trump calling the border situation a humanitarian crisis or a national emergency because of the crime committed by illegal aliens is not enough. That does not trigger his full military authority and duty to defend the nation.

Without a declaration that the cartels are terrorists organizations and unconventional military enemies, President Trump will be in a far weaker legal position, and will be vulnerable to the courts ruling that he has improperly attempted to circumvent Congress’s legislative power over legislation that is about enforcement of laws, rather than a military situation. President Trump needs to properly call it what it is – a military invasion by military enemies.

C.   Simply building some of the wall using the Army Corps of Engineers is not enough to actually secure the border. Even if 7 billion dollars worth of wall is built by that method, there must be sufficient boots on the ground to patrol that barrier. There are simply not enough CBP personnel to do so. Recently, in Yuma Arizona, the media reported on hundreds of illegals jumping over or digging under the exiting steel fence, and noting that there were only three CBP agents available to patrol 27 miles of that fenced border. That is a massive failure. As any military veteran can tell you, any barrier is ineffective unless it is properly manned and patrolled by ground personnel. Therefore, even if the Army Corps of Engineers builds new, improved wall sections, those walls must be manned and patrolled.
And meanwhile, while the wall is being built, the border will still be as unsecured as it is right now. And it could take years for the U.S. government to purchase private land or take it by eminent domain to build the wall. The only way to truly secure the border, now and into the future, is to use the U.S. military en mass, as well as the National Guard called into national service, and, finally, by calling forth the the Militia (we the people) under 10 U.S.C. secs. 252 and 253.

That has ALWAYS been a reality. It was a reality back in 1916 when President Wilson deployed the U.S. Army and National Guard in force all along the border with Mexico, and it is a reality today. The blunt truth is that there has NEVER been enough Border Patrol agents to actually secure the border, and there still would not be enough of them even with a new high wall all along the 2,000 mile border. It takes both. It takes a proper barrier system (including walls/steel fencing), back up by sufficient man-power to patrol it, coupled with roads right behind the wall, and a layered system of additional fencing and sensors behind the primary barrier. The personnel would both patrol the actual border on the roads behind the barriers, and also be deployed in-depth to catch those who still manage to break through. Where a walls is for some reason not feasible, such as on some of the shifting sands or shifting river bed areas, such areas will be even more man-power intensive as there will need to be increased patrolling and rapid deploying response teams to interdict any illegal entry that is picked up by sensors and cameras.

Even with a wall, securing the border will take large numbers of personnel, at least three times as many as the current 21,000 CBP agents, and until that wall is built it will realistically take at least five times as many to adequately patrol the border.  It will take the U.S. military. And since they are already on the government payroll, it makes perfect sense.   Just as there were Army outposts and forts all along the border with Mexico back in 1916, the U.S. Army should once again have bases and outposts all along the border, and should use border operations and duty as part of it training and deployment cycle. Ditto for the U.S. Marine Corps, as well as. the National Guard units of each border state. If they can be used to man the DMZ in Korea to secure that border, they can be used here to secure our border. This is simply military common sense.

Given the above illustrated reality, please contact the President and urge him to make all of the following findings in his declaration of emergency.

Call the White House at:  202-456-1111

And also contact President Trump’s Twitter account.

Feel free to use the below proposed findings, as well as the above write up, in your communications with President Trump, his staff, and your representatives.

PROPOSED FINDINGS

President Trump’s declaration of emergency should find:
  1. That this is a national security emergency, a MILITARY invasion by international terrorists/unconventional warfare enemies, an insurrection against the laws of the union, as well as a humanitarian crisis;
  2. That the Mexican drug cartels are unconventional warfare (“fourth generation warfare”) military foes of our nation who are the de facto rulers of Mexico (especially in Northern Mexico), and who have invaded our nation and continue to invade our nation;
  3. That the brutal drug cartels, their violent street gang allies, and the violent illegal aliens they bring in, are murdering large numbers of Americans each year (Newman, CA police Cpl. Ronil Singh being the most recent victim) and taking over U.S. territory just as they have taken over Northern Mexico;
  4. That the Mexican drug cartels also directly smuggle in known terrorists and suspected terrorists, from all over the world.
  5. That those brutal drug cartels are essentially the Western Hemisphere version of ISIS, since they, just like ISIS – are brutal terrorists who move across borders to forcibly take over territory, using violence and the threat of violence to obtain their political goals of taking over the political infrastructure of towns, cities, and counties on the U.S. side of the border – as well as using bribery and corruption – all with the goal of controlling/suppressing/terrorizing the population and making local politicians and police their puppets.
  6. That the Mexican cartels then rape, torture, murder, enslave, and abuse women and children, while forcing them into sex slavery. That sexual slave trade abuse by the cartels in both Mexico and inside the U.S. is well documented and beyond question.  It is an epidemic. It is the modern version of the horrific slave trade this nation eradicated after the Civil War. The Mexican cartels are the modern slavers of the Western Hemisphere just as ISIS are the modern slavers of Africa and the Middle East.
  7. That this humanitarian crisis goes hand-in-hand with the terrorism, unconventional warfare, and invasion of our nation across our Southern border, just as such brutal treatment of women and children is part and parcel of what ISIS does in the Middle East.
  8. That, based on the above facts and findings, he is declaring the Mexican drug cartels to be international terrorist organizations in the ongoing war on terror.  
  9. in addition, thousands of Americans die each year because of the illegal drug trade that the Mexican drug cartels run and supply.
  10. Further, thousands more Americans die each year at the hands of illegal alien drunk drivers who are brought into this nation by the cartels.
He then needs to declare that, because of that military invasion by international terrorists, national security emergency, and humanitarian crisis, he is, pursuant to his powers and duties as President and as Commander-in-Chief:
  1. Ordering the U.S. military -both active duty and National Guard called into federal service –  to deploy, in force, to the southern border with Mexico (just as President Wilson did in 1916), to forcibly secure the entire length of that 2,000 mile border, now. We would also strongly encourage him to call forth the militia, made up of we the people (and especially us trained military veterans) to also serve on the border with Mexico, under 10 U.S.C. secs. 252 and 253.
  2. Ordering the U.S. military to build the necessary layered system of physical wall/steel fence; border patrol roads behind that wall/fence to make it easy to patrol and observe the barriers; and sensors and cameras to keep those barriers under constant observation (just as the U.S. military built and maintains the DMZ in Korea on the border between North and South Korea).  That barrier system would then be patrolled by both the military and by CBP, and backed up by military and Border Protection chase teams/QRFs, in ground vehicles, on foot or horseback, or deployed by helicopter, terrain depending.
And finally, President Trump needs to also declare:
  1. That the open borders fanatics on the political Left in this nation are open allies of the invading cartels, street gangs, and violent illegal aliens;
  2. That the sanctuary state law in California directly led the the death of Cpl. Ronil Singh, as Stanislaus County Sheriff Adam Christianson has publicly stated;
  3. That such “sanctuary state” and “sanctuary city” edicts are null and void from inception under the Supremacy Clause of Article VI of the Constitution;
  4. That such edicts are in fact acts of rebellion/insurrection against the laws of the Union;
  5. That those who enacted those edicts, or use them to aid, abet, and shelter illegal aliens, are committing acts of insurrection/rebellion against the constitutionally enacted laws of the Union as well as aiding and abetting the cartels in their systemic sexual slave trade and abuse of women and children that constitutes crimes against humanity, aiding and abetting their terrorism, and aiding and abetting their illicit drug trade;
  6. That those above described individuals are also committing federal felonies under long established federal law that criminalizes harboring, aiding, and abetting illegal aliens;
  7. That the Democratic Party leadership is likewise aiding and abetting the cartels, the violent illegal alien gangs, and the other violent illegal aliens in this nation, and aiding all the horrors they commit, by refusing to fund the necessary border wall/fencing to actually secure the border and by supporting, enacting, and/or encouraging “sanctuary city” and “sanctuary state” legislation/enactments that shelter, aid and abet criminal illegal aliens, including cartel terrorists and gang members.
  8. Finally, he needs to openly acknowledge the elephant in the room – that the political left in America is doing all of the above partly with the intent of illegitimately gaining a permanent lock on political power by illegally bringing in people the left hopes will predominantly vote for leftists candidates (even when illegally and fraudulently voting in elections).
The above simply reflects the reality on our Southern border, the political reality in this nation, and what must be done to stop it. We only have 21,000 Border Protection agents (capped by federal law) which is not anywhere near enough to actually secure our border, and we must have a physical barrier of wall/steel fencing, which must then be patrolled by enough boots on the ground to actually interdict and apprehend illegals when they do make it through the barriers. The President must declare an emergency and use the military to finally, completely, secure our border with Mexico. He must deploy the troops, just like President Wilson did back in 1916 after Poncho Villa and his men raided across the border.   The cartels and their allies are even worse than Poncho Villa since they don’t leave after murdering American citizens. Instead, they stay in the U.S. and work to take over, inside the U.S., just as they have taken over inside Mexico by means of terror and bribes, with their infamous “offer” of “Plato o Plomo” – “silver or lead.”

President Trump stands at a cross-roads in this nation’s history, when the survival of this nation is hanging in the balance. A nation without borders is not a nation, but is instead in a death spiral. We need only look to Northern Mexico to see where that spiral ends.

It is time to put a stop to it. And that requires military action.

Make sure President Trump hears you!

PS – President Trump could also include the gangs that serve the cartels, such as MS-13, in his findings, as well as any other international cartels or gangs that are allies of the Mexican drug cartels. All of them are unconventional warfare enemies and terrorists.
