Factoids From Tonight's Conference Call -- March 25, 2019

By Anna Von Reitz

I hate it during teleconferences when people go blat-blat-blat and spout out names of legislation and books and everything else so fast and I am left wondering if I heard it right or got the right number, etc., so I am doing a little due diligence here to help the Listeners and recap for everyone:

About our American Government:

The Republican States of the Union [The United States--- unincorporated] control and own the Republic States of the Federation [The United States of America--- unincorporated] which control and own the Confederate States of the Confederation [the States of America] which are actually "States of States".

The states own the States which own The States of States.

This is why it is necessary for the living people to correct their political status records so that they can act in their capacity as People, assemble their States of the Union, and finish the reconstruction of The States of States we are owed.

As you can see from the above, only Lawful Persons can operate Republic States, and only the Republic States can create and charter their own Confederation States [aka States of States]. 

This is what is necessary to finish the restoration and reconstruction of our lawfully mandated government.

Our American Government operates by Declarations known as "Freeman Letters" and does not function on Executive Orders or Municipal Code.

The book I mentioned that explains "Republican in Form" --- that is, the Republican States, is Emergence from Illusion -- Nation Building Should Begin at Home, by Ricardo Johansson, pages 77-91.  The author doesn't understand some of the fine points of other issues of jurisdiction and our peculiar American History, but his explanation of the form of government we are owed is spot on.   So is his expose of University Publishing and the Confederation Congress and the promotion of Hickey's corporate charter "constitution" from 1847 onward.

The other reference I made was to the Lanhan Act, also known as the Trademark Act of 1946, which prohibits Trademark Infringement, dilution, and false advertising.  It's important to know that your Proper Name is a Trademark protected under the Lanhan Act, Title 15, Statutes at Large 60 Stat 427, 15 USC 1051 et seq, which  especially protects Unregistered Trademarks--- 15 USC 1125 (a). 

This is protection that the Territorial Government owes to you and to millions of private unincorporated business owners throughout the county whose Business Names are also Lawful (Common Law) Trademarks and therefore Unregistered Trademarks: Joe's Bicycle Shop,  Kate's Dog Day Kennel, and so on.

When you record the Re-Conveyance of your Proper Name to the land and soil of your birth State, you are recording your Trademark's permanent domicile and leaving no doubt as to its lawful ownership and provenance. This is an Unregistered Trademark in Common Law protected by the Lanhan Act.
So is your thumbprint or any other unique Seal you use for business or Trade purposes

Many State of State organizations also provide additional protections as part of their General Session Laws, which are designed to administer State Trust interests owed to the People of each State.

As living people we are not party to nor subject to any of these codes or regulations, but we may invoke these public obligations of the Territorial Government for our private purposes, especially when dealing with employees of the Territorial Government. They have a commitment to fulfill regarding the protection of Unregistered Trademarks and you now know exactly where that commitment is stated --- and thank you for the reminder, C.Johnson!

The Jester's Defense

By Anna Von Reitz

Yes, you can claim to be an "idiot" and walk out of almost any imaginable court scenario that doesn't involve actual harm to people or property. This is because when an idiot admits being an idiot, he cannot be held responsible and cannot be expected to make a sensible or responsible reply. There is nowhere the court can go with him and make it stick.
Why? Because he's an idiot.

This is also called "The Jester's Defense".
Monarchs were prevented from killing, fining, or otherwise harming Jesters under the same provisions of law.
So long as you have done no actual material harm, and stand there and claim to be an "idiot" every time the court or prosecutor addresses you, they are stuck honoring the among the oldest traditions of all law: The Jester's Defense.
As damaging as this might be to one's pride, the assurance of an almost certain dismissal of charges when faced with charges related to taxes and infractions of vehicle codes and thought crimes and small quantity marijuana possession and 80 million other such legislative horrors, it could be well worth smiling at the judge and loudly proclaiming, "I'm an idiot!" every time anyone says anything to you.
Especially for poor people and those unable or unwilling to spend large portions of their lives learning administrative and martial and international and municipal law, this particular defense strategy is very simple and very hard for any prosecutor to overcome.
It does not require you to be or claim to be an "absolute idiot" ----
like a Medieval Jester, you may be perfectly functional, witty, light on your feet, and still successfully make The Jester's Defense.
Likewise, it does not suggest mental illness, just an incapacity.
Just remember that once any questioning about pleas and so forth begins, you are limited to one reply: "I am an idiot!"
There's a popular country song right now called, "What Was I Thinking?" --- which describes a young man's response to his own behavior and risks he took to romance a certain young lady at the risk of a shotgun.
Many young men who find themselves on the short end of a situation that leaves them wondering the same thing--- what was I thinking? --- would be well-served and well-advised to just throw up their hands in front of the judge and the prosecutor and say, "I'm an idiot!"

About Law and Lawyers and Practice Thereof

By Anna Von Reitz

From time to time we get accused of "practicing law without a license".  As with  other licenses, we don't need a license to practice law.  

We also get "returning lawyers" ---- Bar Attorneys and former Judges and Magistrates who are disillusioned or who have one way or another stumbled on the truth for themselves, and who are looking for a way forward.  We all need to be able to shepherd these people into a new life along with the rest of us.   So here, first of all, is a good succinct run down of the facts provided by Kelby Smith:  

"The practice of law cannot be licensed by any state/State. Schware v. Board of Examiners, United States Reports 353 U.S. pgs. 238, 239. In Sims v. Aherns, 271 S.W. 720 (1925) "The practice of law is an occupation of common right."  Oklahoma Court Rules and Procedures, Title 12, sec. 2017 (C) "If an infant or incompetent person does not have a duly appointed representative he may sue by his next friend or by a guardian ad litem."  Brotherhood of Trainmen v. Virginia ex rel. Virginia State Bar (377 U.S. 1); Gideon v. Wainwright 372 U.S. 335; Argersinger v. Hamlin, Sheriff 407 U.S. 425. Litigants may be assisted by unlicensed layman during judicial proceedings.  NAACP v. Button (371 U.S. 415); United Mineworkers of America v. Gibbs (383 U.S. 715); and Johnson v. Avery 89 S. Ct. 747 (1969). Members of groups who are competent non lawyers can assist other members of the group achieve the goals of the group in court without being charged with "Unauthorized practice of law."  

And furthermore, former Bar Attorneys who revoke their membership in the Bar, can continue to function lawfully as Counselors of Law.  The one thing they can't do is speak directly for anyone who is not an infant or otherwise incompetent, and instead must "stand at the elbow" of the actual litigant, giving blow-by-blow advice.   

Loss of a Bar Card does not mean the Soup Kitchen for former Bar Attorneys.  For many, death to the lies and frauds is a new lease on life and a new relationship with law in all its many forms.

Ron Vrooman is Simply Wrong

By Anna Von Reitz

Ron Vrooman is Simply Wrong

He thinks he is acting as an American. But he's not.

He thinks that a "US Citizen" is the same thing as an American.

In fact, as can be simply proven, the two things have never been the same.

He thinks that a "State" is the same as a "State of State".

That, too, is simply wrong.

He thinks that he can act in the capacity of an Oregonian -- a State National or State Citizen of Oregon -- and at the same time continue to claim that he is a "US Citizen".

That's wrong, too.

He even claims that he is the coordinator of the Oregon Assembly, but that's wrong also.

You can't act as a US Citizen of any stripe and act as the Coordinator (or even be a member of) the Oregon Assembly.

In these delusional assumptions, Ron is not unlike many other Americans who persist in error even after they have been shown the truth and even after it has all been patiently (and repeatedly) explained to them.

The ONLY thing that a "legal person"---- and all US Citizens are legal persons by definition ---- can assemble is by definition a State of State corporation, not a State.

People acting in the capacity of Lawful Persons are the only ones who can assemble a State of the Union.


This is the Law, the Fact, and the History of it.

Ron Vrooman is welcome to stay a US Citizen of whatever kind, but he is not welcome to make false claims of American State Citizenship while he is doing so.

This is like a Spaniard claiming to be Irish and a member of the Irish Government to boot.

What he is doing is in fact anti-American.

Until he understands the requirement of singular allegiance to his State of the Union, he can't do what he wants to do as an Oregonian and he can't lead others to success, either.

Everything he is saying, preaching, doing is wrong and it is wrong because he can't or won't grasp the difference between "America" and " the United States" and can't see the difference between a "State" of the Union and a "State of State" corporation.

Don't follow Ron into the same old trap.

He is doing and assuming the same kinds of things that I warned Bruce Doucette and the Colorado Nine against.

The Reason for All the Paperwork

By Anna Von Reitz

There is really only one purpose for all this paperwork, and that is to establish a public record and evidence of who you are and the capacity in which you choose to act.   There is in turn only one reason to do that --- and that reason is to protect you and your family from oppression and foreign subjection and false claims in commerce.  

Your identity has been stolen and false claims have been established against your Good Name in violation of treaties, conventions, and commercial service contracts that both the Territorial and Municipal Governments owe to you.  

Just as it requires action on your part to reclaim your identity after a credit card hacker makes unauthorized charges, this situation requires you to take action to reclaim your identity from this abuse by government service providers. 

Beyond the paperwork involved, you need to educate yourselves about the actual Public Law you are heir to.  

Last, every American who can qualify to serve as an American State Citizen is encouraged to join their lawful State Assembly and serve.  There is a large back log of issues to be addressed and work to be done.

SPLC Implodes: President And Legal Director Resign Amid Sexual Misconduct Scandal

The Southern Poverty Law Center - the "vicious left-wing attack dog" used by the likes of Facebook, Twitter, Google and Amazon to identify "hate groups" - is unraveling. 
A week after co-founder Morris Dees was ousted over sexual misconduct claims - with two dozen employees signing a letter of concern over "allegations of mistreatment, sexual harassment, gender discrimination, and racism," the head of the SPLC, Richard Cohen, as well as the organization's legal director, Rhonda Brownstein, resigned on Friday. 

Morris Dees, Richard Cohen, Rhonda Brownstein

Cohen had been with the organization 33 years and was one of its most prominent figures. 
At 5:03 p.m. Friday, Cohen sent a message to staff, with the subject line “Stepping Down,” announcing that he, too, would be leaving the organization that he and Dees had turned into a research and fundraising juggernaut.
“Whatever problems exist at the SPLC happened on my watch, so I take responsibility for them,” Cohen wrote, while asking the staff to avoid jumping to conclusions before the board completes an internal review of the Montgomery, Ala., organization’s work culture. -LA Times
Earlier this week, the SPLC board of directors appointed Michelle Obama's former chief of staff, Tina Tchen - who, in an unrelated matter, unsuccessfully tried to pull strings and have the Jussie Smollett case transferred from the Chicago PD to the FBI. Tchen is heading up the inquiry into the sexual misconduct claims.

Also out on Friday was Rhonda Brownstein - who had worked with the organization for nearly three decades, according to the Montgomery Advertiser's Melissa Brown.
