What Are The States and Why Do We Need to Assemble Them?

By Anna Von Reitz

Many centuries ago, people recognized that there is a difference between the biologically active layer of the Earth that we call "soil" and the relatively inert "subsoil" which they called "land".  This convention, making a distinction between the "land and soil", and considering them separate jurisdictions under the law, was inherited from British Land Law.  

Thus, in America, we have Republican States, like The Wisconsin Republic and The California Republic and The Florida Republic, that occupy the soil jurisdiction--- the top six inches of the land.  

This is considered the "National Jurisdiction" because this is where the living people live and breathe and spend their lives.  The living population is referred to as "people" with a small "p".  All living people are unincorporated and sovereign by nature.  Thus, the people come together to decide local issues related to their soil jurisdiction within the borders of their Republican State, aka, The Maine Republic.  

The land jurisdiction underlying the soil is part of the International Jurisdiction owed to the people.  When they act to conduct International Jurisdiction business, they are acting in the capacity of Lawful Persons known as "People" with a capital "P".  These International Land Jurisdiction States all operate under simple Proper Names like this: Massachusetts, Illinois, Iowa.  

These States all have geographically defined borders and all take reference to actual, factual, physical land holdings.  

They all belong as property assets to the people who populate the Republican States, thus, "The Florida Republic" which belongs to the people, also possesses "Florida" which is operated by the People.  

Both the living people (soil) and the Lawful Persons (land) are the same, just acting in two different capacities in the same way that you can act as a Father or as a School Teacher.  

By now you have noticed that "We, the People" refers to the Lawful Persons operating the States like Florida and Maine and Ohio ---- the international land jurisdiction States of the Union. 

These States operated by the Lawful Persons --- the People --- are the Parties to the Constitutions, and as a result, these are the States and People that can enforce the provisions of the Constitutions.  

Nobody else on our side of the issues can enforce the Constitutions. 

And we haven't assembled the States in 150 years.  

So our Hired Help has been running wild and unsupervised for all this time.  

We haven't been acting in our correct capacity, we haven't been assembling our States and conducting business, so they have simply ignored us and "presumed" that we are either British Territorial Citizens or Municipal United States Citizens temporarily "residing" here as "US Citizens" in the same way that they are.  

It is therefore necessary and indeed, it has become urgent, that we wake up and correct the falsified records misidentifying us as "US Citizens", and adopt our proper political status and act in our capacity as Lawful Persons ---- the People --- and assemble our States of the Union.  

This has not been done since 1860.  We have never seen our actual government in action.  

We have never acted in the capacity of "We, the People"---and could not act in that capacity until now, because we have all been misidentified as "US Citizens" by our run-amok employees, without our understanding, knowledge, or consent.  

As a result of this unconscionable contract --- a purported contract that we ever knew anything about ---- to act as "US Citizens", and therefore not as Americans known as Texans, Californians, and so on ---- we have been precluded from acting as Lawful Persons and prevented from claiming and exercising our birthrights and of course, could not act as We, the People, either. 

Until now.  

You can now understand why it is amazing to the managers of the commercial corporations that have run wild on our shores as governmental service providers ----that we have awakened after a 150 years and are taking this action, even though such action is constitutionally guaranteed.  

It is also confusing for many of those who are just waking up and who have been indoctrinated to think of themselves as "US Citizens" ---that is, employees of foreign corporations temporarily "residing" here while providing governmental services to our States.  

We have to overcome both the "Talking Horse Response" from our erstwhile and wayward Federal and State of State employees, and the confusion of Americans who have been misled to think of and call themselves "US Citizens" all their lives. 

At the same time, we have to educate ourselves about our actual American Government and dust off the cobwebs and records so that we familiarize ourselves with the long-vacant offices and traditions of our own Government of the People, by the People, and for the People.  

For example, in our system of government, the State Assembly Chairman tells the land jurisdiction Governor what to do, and our land jurisdiction Governor acts as our Check and Balance against usurpation by our Federal employees. 

This is not an easy task in any respect.  It is a daunting responsibility to self-govern that brings with it ultimate and unalienable rights and prerogatives. Each one of us has to take action to reclaim our birthright political status and each one has to make a decision whether we wish to live as State Nationals or State Citizens.  

American State Nationals owe no obligation or duty to serve the government; the government owes them all duty and obligation.  Other than keeping the peace and not damaging people or property, American State Nationals are truly free and in possession of all their Natural and Unalienable Rights. 

American State Citizens are those among us who accept the burden of serving their State Government as Electors (our version of "Voters"), Jurors, elected officials, and hired officers.  

It is to be hoped in the present circumstance that a majority of those reading this will step forward and serve their State, which is being assembled for the first time in a 150 years and is in great need of their service.  

We need to "repopulate" our States of the Union, which requires filling our Jury Pools, filling our vacant Public Offices, holding elections, and doing all the other work of our lawful State Governments.

For The Confused Texans

By Anna Von Reitz

I have already completely explained that the soil jurisdiction is what belongs to the "Republics"-- all of them including Texas.  The Wisconsin Republic occupies the soil of Wisconsin, The Maine Republic occupies the soil of Maine, and guess what?  The Texas Republic occupies the soil of Texas.  

The "soil" as defined in law, is the top six inches of the land.  That is what The Texas Republic controls. 

The "land" is everything underlying the soil.  Texas controls that.

Obviously you have to have both land and soil together or you can't control one or you can't live on the other--- take your pick. 

So, The Texas Republic owns the Soil and Texas owns the Land.  The Republic controls the nation and Texas controls the international relations of the nation. 

Since we are talking here, with regard to the American States Assembly, about international relations with everyone outside of Texas, we are talking about the State level--- Texas, and not talking about the soil jurisdiction inside the borders of The Texas Republic. 

The sooner you all get your heads wrapped around this, the better. 

Nobody here is trying to take anything away from you or giving anybody bad advice.  If you can figure out a way of standing on the soil of the Republic and living on it --just the top six inches--without the land of Texas underlying and supporting the soil,  then you just hop to it. 

Absent that, I think you will agree that you need both The Texas Republic (soil) and Texas (land) to make a go of it.  

By telling people to return to their land and soil I am telling them to get their records corrected because almost all of them have been falsified.  

If you want to be considered a Texan you better move your feet and stop talking and start walking because right now you are classified as either a Brit or a employee of the Holy Roman Empire who is just working in and temporarily "residing" in Texas. 

THAT is why I am telling you to do your paperwork. You have been misidentified. Your identity has been stolen. 

As things stand, you are not "recognizable" as a Texan and there are no public records showing otherwise, so you had better listen to what I am telling you and get evidence of who you are and a declaration of your political status on the Public Record. 

Otherwise, you are nothing and nobody --- presumed to be an employee of  foreign commercial corporations, a "US Citizen" who is "residing" temporarily in Texas --- and you have no Constitution, no land, no treaties, no Republic and no Texas, either. 

How many times do I have to say: "Hey!  Your identity has been stolen!"  -- before it gets through your thick rinds and you take action to correct that and don't blame me for telling you the truth? 

Get up on your feet or lay down in your graves.  It isn't "Anna von Reitz" that created this situation and tried to give your country away.  Our employees have been selling off our assets and charging their bills against our credit in our purported absence. 

Well, are you absent?  Or present?   An American or a "US Citizen" of some stripe?   A Texan or a toad?   If you can't say one way or another, I guess I can "presume" that you are card-carrying Communist from Lower Slobovia, can't I? 

We, as the People of this country, have got to wake up and tend to the actual business at hand ---which is correcting the public records about ourselves, assembling our States and dealing with this mess. 

All this strutting around and talk about The Texas Republic is a distraction, because the topic and business at hand has to do with Texas-- the land jurisdiction--- not The Texas Republic, which is the soil jurisdiction.  

It's completely maddening to me and most other people around the country to have the Texans show up and want to blow their mouths about oranges at a meeting about apples.  Can you see why?  

We have business to conduct that concerns apples.  

If you want to talk about your precious oranges, we suggest you go back to Austin or wherever else inside the borders of your Republic and do so.  

So far as we are concerned what goes on in The Texas Republic stays in The Texas Republic and we don't need to hear a word about it.  

We are here, gathering together the States of the Union and Texas is one of them.  

Please note.  I said "Texas".  Not "Texas Republic".   Not "Republic of Texas" which controls your non-navigable surface water. 

Now, we know that it is hard enough to get your Republic back in order, but you are called to get your State in order, too.  

Luckily, when you organize your soil jurisdiction you also organize your land jurisdiction, because the same people are unavoidably standing on both the land and soil.  You just have to wrap your heads around it and realize that its so. 

And neither one of these things -- The Texas Republic or Texas --- can be populated by US Citizens.  They can only be populated by those who are Texans and who are claiming to be Texans and nothing else.  

So that is why I am telling you all to get your paperwork on the record and actually explicitly declare your status as Texans and stop messing around.  If you want to operate The Texas Republic, you have to be Texans, not "US Citizens" who are just passing through.  If you want to operate Texas and the international land jurisdiction you are owed, you have to be Texans, not "US Citizens" who might come from Belize.   

Are you getting this?  

Is it finally hitting rock bottom?  

Your identity as Texans has been stolen the same way that a credit card hacker steals identities.  If you don't do anything about that, what are the rest of us --- and the rest of the world --- supposed to think?  That you are "dead" and don't care?  That you are content to give away your birthright as Texans and want to be considered "US Citizens" instead? 

I am sick of dealing with blowhard Texans who come to me and get in-my-face as if I created this situation or was the one responsible for stealing your identities.  I am the one who told you all what was going on.  

And now it's up to you to get on your feet and start the stampede to officially and on the Public Record----  go home to your own land and soil---- or just stand there and blow steam.  Continue to swear that you are "Texans' and at the same time, let people "presume" that you are "US Citizens" instead.  

I don't give a rat's rump what you individually do.  Sit on the dirt and spin for all I care.  I just hope and pray to God that there are enough intelligent people left in Texas to see what I am talking about and I hope they get organized to deal with the urgent business facing their State --- Texas.

Especially For Lawyers --- Public Notice

By Anna Von Reitz

This goes out to every American and to every United States Citizen and to every lawyer in America----let's all get this straight once and for all: 

No incorporated entity can be a sovereign entity.  By definition. 

All incorporated entities are created by a charter or other written covenant granted by a sovereign entity or some higher level parent corporation which is in turn granted a charter or covenant by a sovereign entity. 

There may be layers upon layers of different trusts and foundations and C-Corps and S-Corps and LLCs and only God knows what else, but at the end of the day, all the corporations in the world owe their existence to a sovereign and not a single corporate entity is sovereign. Not one. 

Therefore, when you have an incorporated entity pretending to be a sovereign government and claiming such things as sovereign immunity, you've got an obvious fraud going on.  

When you have an incorporated entity pretending to be an agent of a sovereign government and exercising authority "as if" it were a sovereign entity, yet it has no valid authorization  ---- again, you've got a fraud going on.  

None of these Federal Corporations and none of their States of State organizations are sovereign entities.  

They have no sovereign immunity.  

They have no authorization to act "as" sovereign entities on our shores; any such presumption is a violation of the Constitutions owed to our States of the Union. 

These entities are renegade foreign commercial corporations traded on the Stock Exchanges, acting as Taxpayers with EINs and TINs and CAGE numbers and Dunn and Bradstreet and Standard and Poor's ratings: 

Internal Revenue Service, Inc. 
State of Colorado, Inc. 
Ad Infinitum...... 

These are all foreign incorporated Governmental Service Contractors that are supposed to be providing the services stipulated under their respective Constitutions. 

The only thing confusing about this is that there are two groups of them operating at the same time ---- Territorial corporations that use the Upper and Lower Case naming conventions, like the State of Wisconsin, and Municipal corporations that use the Roman all capitals letters style: STATE OF WISCONSIN.  

One set of these corporations is run by the British Territorial United States Government.  The other set is run by the Municipal United States Congress.  

And none of them are sovereign entities with respect to us and neither one suddenly morphed into anything that can claim to be our government just because they are under contract to provide governmental services to our States of the Union.  

Please take Notice of these facts and conduct yourselves accordingly, or risk being accomplices to fraud and other crimes.

What I Learned in the Peace Corps in Africa: Trump Is Right

   The real world.
What I Learned in the Peace Corps in Africa:  Trump Is Right
January 17, 2018

Three weeks after college, I flew to Senegal, West Africa, to run a community center in a rural town.  Life was placid, with no danger, except to your health.  That danger was considerable, because it was, in the words of the Peace Corps doctor, "a fecalized environment"

In plain English: s--- is everywhere.  People defecate on the open ground, and the feces is blown with the dust – onto you, your clothes, your food, the water.  He warned us the first day of training: do not even touch water.  Human feces carries parasites  that bore through your skin and cause organ failure.

Never in my wildest dreams would I have imagined that a few decades later, liberals would be pushing the lie that Western civilization is no better than a third-world country.  Or would teach two generations of our kids that loving your own culture and wanting to preserve it are racism.

Last time I was in Paris, I saw a beautiful African woman in a grand boubou have her child defecate on the sidewalk next to Notre Dame Cathedral.  The French police officer, ten steps from her, turned his head not to see.
I have seen.  I am not turning my head and pretending unpleasant things are not true.

Senegal was not a hellhole.  Very poor people can lead happy, meaningful lives in their own cultures' terms.  But they are not our terms.  The excrement is the least of it.  Our basic ideas of human relations, right and wrong, are incompatible.

As a twenty-one-year-old starting out in the Peace Corps, I loved Senegal.  In fact, I was euphoric.  I quickly made friends and had an adopted family.  I relished the feeling of the brotherhood of man.  People were open, willing to share their lives and, after they knew you, their innermost thoughts.

The longer I lived there, the more I understood: it became blindingly obvious that the Senegalese are not the same as us.  The truths we hold to be self-evident are not evident to the Senegalese.  How could they be?  Their reality is totally different.  You can't understand anything in Senegal using American terms.

Take something as basic as family.  Family was a few hundred people, extending out to second and third cousins.  All the men in one generation were called "father."  Senegalese are Muslim, with up to four wives.  Girls had their clitorises cut off at puberty.  (I witnessed this, at what I thought was going to be a nice coming-of-age ceremony, like a bat mitzvah or confirmation.)  Sex, I was told, did not include kissing.  Love and friendship in marriage were Western ideas.  Fidelity was not a thing.  Married women would have sex for a few cents to have cash for the market.What I did witness every day was that women were worked half to death.  Wives raised the food and fed their own children, did the heavy labor of walking miles to gather wood for the fire, drew water from the well or public faucet, pounded grain with heavy hand-held pestles, lived in their own huts, and had conjugal visits from their husbands on a rotating basis with their co-wives.  Their husbands lazed in the shade of the trees.
Yemily was crucial to people there in a way Americans cannot comprehend.

The Ten Commandments were not disobeyed – they were unknown.  The value system was the exact opposite.  You were supposed to steal everything you can to give to your own relatives.  There are some Westernized Africans who try to rebel against the system.  They fail.

We hear a lot about the kleptocratic elites of Africa.  The kleptocracy extends through the whole society.  My town had a medical clinic donated by international agencies.  The medicine was stolen by the medical workers and sold to the local store.  If you were sick and didn't have money, drop dead.   That was normal.
So here in the States, when we discovered that my 98-year-old father's Muslim health aide from Nigeria had stolen his clothes and wasn't bathing him, I wasn't surprised.  It was familiar.

In Senegal, corruption ruled, from top to bottom.  Go to the post office, and the clerk would name an outrageous price for a stamp.  After paying the bribe, you still didn't know it if it would be mailed or thrown out.  That was normal.
One of my most vivid memories was from the clinic.  One day, as the wait grew hotter in the 110-degree heat, an old woman two feet from the medical aides – who were chatting in the shade of a mango tree instead of working – collapsed to the ground.  They turned their heads so as not to see her and kept talking.  She lay there in the dirt.  Callousness to the sick was normal.

Americans think it is a universal human instinct to do unto others as you would have them do unto you.  It's not.  It seems natural to us because we live in a Bible-based Judeo-Christian culture.

We think the Protestant work ethic is universal.  It's not.  My town was full of young men doing nothing.  They were waiting for a government job.  There was no private enterprise.  Private business was not illegal, just impossible, given the nightmare of a third-world bureaucratic kleptocracy.  It is also incompatible with Senegalese insistence on taking care of relatives.
All the little stores in Senegal were owned by Mauritanians.  If a Senegalese wanted to run a little store, he'd go to another country.  The reason?  Your friends and relatives would ask you for stuff for free, and you would have to say yes.  End of your business.  You are not allowed to be a selfish individual and say no to relatives.  The result: Everyone has nothing.

The more I worked there and visited government officials doing absolutely nothing, the more I realized that no one in Senegal had the idea that a job means work  A job is something given to you by a relative.  It provides the place where you steal everything to give back to your family.

I couldn't wait to get home.  So why would I want to bring Africa here?  Non-Westerners do not magically become American by arriving on our shores with a visa.

For the rest of my life, I enjoyed the greatest gift of the Peace Corps: I love and treasure America more than ever.  I take seriously my responsibility to defend our culture and our country and pass on the American heritage to the next generation.
African problems  are made worse by our aid efforts  Senegal is full of smart, capable people.  They will eventually solve their own country's problems.  They will do it on their terms, not ours.  The solution is not to bring Africans here.

We are lectured by Democrats that we must privilege third-world immigration by the hundred million with chain migration.  They tell us we must end  America as a white , Western, Judeo-Christian, capitalist nation – to prove we are not racist.  I don't need to prove a thing.  Leftists want open borders because they resent whites, resent Western achievements, and hate America.  They want to destroy America as we know it.

As President Trump asked, why would we do that?

We have the right to choose what kind of country to live in.  I was happy to donate a year of my life as a young woman to help the poor Senegalese  I am not willing to donate my country.

Heads Up Federal Civil and Military Retirees!

By Anna Von Reitz

All the Federal entities are operating as commercial corporations no different than Exxon or IBM or GE.

Your situation as a Retiree whether a military Retiree or a Civil Service Retiree is NO DIFFERENT than someone who worked for Exxon in Saudi Arabia, vested in the Exxon pension program, and then returned home to America.

Does Exxon still owe you every bit of your retirement?


Are you obligated to punch their time clock or wear their uniform?


Once you are back in the States do you have to obey the Laws of Saudi Arabia anymore?


So what @#$% are you %$@$%@ talking about? [Scaring Seniors about their retirement?]

This is NOT rocket science, and no, we did not just "forget" or overlook the "possible consequences" to federal retirees of returning home to the actual States of the Union.

What's the point of "fighting for freedom" if you can never enjoy it yourself, and are condemned forever to some kind of foreign enslavement Boot Camp?

Wake up!

When you are "Retired" you ARE retired and any presumption otherwise is your own fault for failure to notify your former federal employers that you have left their foreign jurisdiction and returned home.

I am sick and tired of all this fear-mongering and suggestions that I haven't thought this through and don't know what I am talking about and threatening seniors with the loss of payments they earned from these commercial corporations.

If you stay a "US Citizen" you will receive "benefits"--- as in welfare benefits. And those are just "gifts" to you from the corporations, which may decide to go bankrupt--- and bilk you all out of every penny and service you are owed.

They have no contractual obligation to provide "benefits".

They do however have a Priority obligation to pay pensions and earned income credits and VA Services to American Military Retirees.

So beat your feet home and claim your actual birthright status as Americans--- and stop this fear-mongering and stupidity. There is absolutely no safety and no benefit in claiming any form of US Citizenship when you can claim to be an owner of the actual unincorporated United States.
