Comment on MGJA Notice to Donald Trump

By Anna Von Reitz

I think this "Notice" from the Pretend-to-Be Assemblies is in the same exact vein as dozens of failed Patriot efforts that have gone before.  See all the work that Bob Schultz did.  See all the work that NLA did.  Those who don't learn from their mistakes..... 


That's me making a disgusted sound as I shake my head; you would think that we had all been over this ground too many times before, but no.....  The definition of insanity is to do the same thing over and over and expect different results.  So I guess a lot of patriots in this country are insane.  They just keep making the same mistakes and the same false assumptions--- over and over and over.  

For one thing, in Law, the term "People" very specifically means "People of the Land Jurisdiction"---- and MGJA doesn't qualify its members to act as "People", much less as "We, the People"--- that is, Progeny of the Founders and Inheritors of the National Trust.  

They are all still wandering around claiming to be "US Citizens" of one kind or another, even after I pointed out that no "US Citizen" is now nor has ever been qualified to act in the capacity of one of the "People" of this country.  US Citizens--- whether United States Citizens or Citizens of the United States, either one --- are acting as "Persons" and not as "People" by definition.  

So that renders their actions invalid and ineffective from the get-go. 

At best, President Trump may look at this Notice of theirs as a "Petition".   At worst, he could arrest all of them who haven't bothered to correct their political status records and throw the book at them as "insurrectionists"--- ironically, they could be charged under the same statutory law they are citing for him as reference because they are still carrying "US Citizenship" obligations.  

The whole reference to the Act of 1871 is pathetic, too.  The Act of 1871 was repealed in 1874.  Hello?  Parts of it were piece-meal passed as part of other Acts in 1877-78.  I have published the whole history of this process.  Nobody has any excuse for being ignorant about this and what it all "means" if they have been following along.  

The Municipal United States Government is created by Article I, Section 8, Clause 17, which gives the members of Congress "plenary"--- meaning absolute --- control of the government of  Washington, DC .   That government reorganized itself as a private commercial corporation and Municipality --- an independent, international city-state---and they had every right to do so.  Period.  In and of itself, it had no affect on us or our States and we have no right to complain about how they conduct their business, because under their contract, The Constitution of the United States, they have every right to do whatever they want to do as the government of Washington, DC. 

So all those choices, all those changes, lie outside our contract with them, should not impact us, and do not change their obligations to us.  The Act of 1871 is none of our business, and it does not become any of our business until or unless it results in: (1) neglect or insubordination of duties owed performance; (2) trespass upon our Lawful Jurisdiction; (3) usurpation.  

The grounds that we have to complain are of a different kind entirely than the Notice under discussion implies. 

The Municipal United States Government is strictly limited to operate within the ten miles square of the District of Columbia, but they have usurped far, far beyond that.  They have, without authorization, created their own Municipal Service Districts and extended them all across our country.  They have established STATE OF STATE organizations and established them within the physical borders of every State of the Union, too.  

None of this is allowed under their Constitution, but these entities are operating as foreign commercial corporations, and if we do not object to their activities, they assume that we "acquiesced" to their practices and accepted their "offers" and that they have our permission to act in ways never stipulated by the constitutional agreements.  

Somebody has to hold them to the limitations of their contract, and with all the actual Americans asleep and "presumed" to be some form of Territorial or Municipal US Citizen, there was nobody left to do that.  They have run wild and run amok and nobody has been smart enough or determined enough to get into position to hold their feet to the fire and force them to honor their obligations.  Until now.  

The American States Assembly is closing in. 

These Territorial and Municipal government services corporations and their officers are also under specific performance obligations and duties that they have not fulfilled, which they have bungled, neglected, and ignored.  We have --- once we are recognizable as "People" -- the ability to hold them accountable for that.  

Even worse, these our employees, have been insubordinate and have trespassed against us and against our lawful government.  We can charge them for that, too, once we start acting as "People" again.  The ambush and murder of LaVoy Finicum comes to mind.  

That is heinous enough in and of itself, but when you consider that Municipal United States Subcontractors --- FBI --- planned and executed this action, it becomes clear just how far out of line these members of Congress are and how necessary it is for Americans to wake up, act in their Lawful Capacity,  and hold these foreign commercial corporations accountable. 

These are all matters of criminality, not politics.  

Ruby Ridge, Waco, 911, LaVoy ---- these are international crimes being committed on our shores by misdirected Federal Employees and Federal Subcontractors.  We don't need to whine to Donald Trump.  He is already doing his best.  What we need to do is to get our own Ducks in Order, and do what needs to be done to correct our own political status, assemble the actual States of the Union, and kick rump.  

Then we can help President Trump drain the Swamp and discourage the Alligators, instead of standing around like little children whimpering about having their candy taken away and shouting, "I'm King of the Mountain!"  or, in this case, falsely claiming to act as "We, the People" when we haven't even bothered to find out what "People" means.  

The American States Assembly has done the work and paid the price to actually function as "We, the People".  

We know that the actual States of the Union don't allow participation by "US Citizens" in their government, because it would be a gross conflict of interest.  We are assembling States, not States of States. 

We know that we have been deliberately misidentified, first as British Territorial Citizens, and then as Municipal CITIZENS.  We also know that there is no evidence on the Public Record to rebut these presumptions against us, until we take action to correct this circumstance and produce our pedigree and back up our claim to be and to act as one of the People of this country. 

We, The American States Assembly, and our member State Assemblies, have standing as "We, the People", and we are not petitioning anyone for anything.  Nor are we sending vain "Notices" to Donald Trump, and adding to his burden and frustration.  We are rebuilding and restoring our Lawful Government --- and we are beginning action to enforce the Constitutions owed to us by the Territorial and Municipal Governments.  

Please realize that we have already given complete Notice and Due Process to all members of the Territorial and Municipal Governments. That process was completed in April 2014.  It took seven (7) years to accomplish, but we did it. There is no need for any other effort by Americans to serve Notice nor Due Process on Donald Trump nor any other corporate official.  That was already done five (5) years ago and has been under continuous action ever since.  The backstory of this effort is detailed in my book, Disclosure 101, and anyone trying to deal with this Mess needs to sit down and read it----sooner rather than later. 

Then maybe the Queen will stop laughing at the ignorant Colonials stumbling around claiming to be US Citizens at the same time they are claiming to be "We, the People".  And maybe the Roman Pontiff will realize that being the "bridge" between Life and Death requires more Due Diligence from him than he has been giving to it.   And ---- imagine the American Patriot Movement finally coming together and being properly educated and taking effective measures to correct this Mess?   Wouldn't that be something------- ? 

That's my comment on their Notice.  Don't expect Donald Trump to give it any notice back.  If he does, he will be acting in error---- because they are, as US Citizens --- his subordinates, and no more "We, the People" than the Iman of Kashmir.

Deadly Assessment Letter to End IRS False Claims

By Anna Von Reitz

Okay, you have sent in your Revocation of Election to Pay Federal Income Taxes and identified yourself as a private Lawful Person, but the IRS doesn't want to take "No, thanks." for an answer.  They will often continue to send you letters and threaten and harass you in various ways even long after you have cut the cord and sailed away. 

In order for them to collect a tax, someone must assess a tax.  In order to create a lien, someone must first assess a tax.   

If you refuse to do that for them, they will happily appoint someone on their staff to do it "for" your PERSON, however, that IRS employee will never have any first-hand knowledge and can't validate the debt. 

It is this assessment process which underlies every lien and every other action they undertake without your participation or consent that is the Fatal Flaw in their system.    

If you are sick of getting letters from the IRS, especially threatening letters claiming that you owe them debts, and offering to lien your assets and take you to court, etc. --- send them a counter-offer.  

Here's an example of a clean strike letter sealed with a self-fulfilling contract. 
Notice that you take charge of the situation and secure your position up front. You are polite and professional.  You are reasonable and give them sufficient time to respond.  

When they don't respond within 30 days, you stamp "Second Notice" on a copy of the same letter, write in a new Registered Mail Number and cross out "thirty (30)" and write in "ten (10)" on the Second Notice copy as the amount of time they have to respond. 

When they don't respond within the additional 10 (ten) days, you send a third copy of the same letter stamped "Final Notice", and again, change the Registered Mail Number, and number of days for them to respond from 10 days to 7 days. 

They won't respond because they can't do so without endangering themselves. They are telling a Big, Fat Lie and you are calling them on it.   

Your self-fulfilling contract has been "accepted" and all "Due Process" has been served.  If they ever rear their ugly heads again, trot out your correspondence. 
This same process can be used to reply to State Tax Collectors. 

Always bear in mind that there are some PERSONS who do owe Federal Income Taxes, and be sure that you are not one of them before revoking or contesting with the IRS.  

The checklist is simple--- are you a Federal Employee?  If so, you owe Federal Income Taxes.  Are you a Dependent of a Federal Employee?  You may owe Federal Income Taxes, too.  

Are you a recipient of unearned Federal Welfare payments or retirement income based on Federal Employment?  You may have to pay some back as Federal Income Tax --- but in the case of Social Security payments based on mixed Federal and Private Sector earnings, only the portion attributable to Federal Employment is taxable. 

Please note that many veterans owe a dollar or two of Federal Income Taxes based on their two-year employment in the military decades ago, but this and similar trivial income is exempted by the standard deductible. 

Are you a "political asylum seeker" like the Hondurans at our Southern Border?  You will owe federal income tax on any federal income you receive until your political status is changed and settled. 

Last, are you operating (knowingly, willingly, voluntarily) a commercial corporation or maritime VESSEL registered in the Municipal United States (Washington, DC)?   

For the vast majority of us, the answer to that one is ---- hell, no, I am not knowingly, willingly, or voluntarily operating any such contrivances, but now that  I have been made aware that such a "franchise" has been created "for" me and in my name, I have corrected my political status and removed the franchise to a permanent domicile on the land and soil of.... Illinois, Minnesota, Vermont..... 

Still, always remember that there are such things as "US Corporations" and those corporations that have been enfranchised as "US CITIZENS" under the Diversity Clause of the Federal Code, are subject to paying -- guess what? Federal Income Tax.  

This is just another reason why you must go through the Turkey Trot of formally recording and reclaiming your Good Name and birthright political status and natural estate as an American.  This is why you have to expatriate these NAMES and establish their new permanent domicile on the land and soil jurisdiction State. 

Until you object to the "presumption" that you are conducting your business as a US Corporation, you owe the franchise taxes --- that is, Federal Income Tax. Until you take exception to these presumptions and record your counterclaims (the paperwork available on and Article 928 on my website,, there is no evidence on the Public Record in support of your position that you are an American and not a Federal Citizen nor Federal Employee and not operating as a Federal Corporation Franchisee, either. 

Okay?  I don't want anyone going off half-cocked.  I don't want anyone getting in trouble because they don't completely understand the web they are in or are unprepared to rebut the legal presumption of US Citizenship/US CITIZENSHIP. 

On the other hand, I don't want Joe Average American taxed for taxes he doesn't owe and never did.  I don't want to see Joe Average suffering wage garnishments that don't apply to him.  I don't want to see Joe losing his home or his retirement to these voracious foreign bill collectors. 

The vast majority of us are naturally exempt from Federal Income Taxes and don't get a drop of Federal Income.  So.....  if you are Joe Average, get busy, record your paperwork to reclaim your birthright political status, and.... when you get threatening mail after you have revoked your election to pay Federal Income Taxes, send back a letter something like this:

To Whom It May Concern, [or the name of specific officer harassing you]

Re: Notice CP40, Dated: April XX, 2018  

I have your Notice CP40 which is dated: April 22, 2019. If I had any federal income during the referenced year it is my intent to comply.

Your offer regarding the referenced tax year is accepted and returned. I will provide an information return upon proof of claim that I had taxable federal income during the year in question.
In order to reply, I must know the character, nature and venue of the alleged assessment. Please have a designated Assessment Officer of the Internal Revenue Service send me: (1) a dated and certified and signed assessment and (2) a copy of the supporting record used to create the assessment. I will also need the Assessment Officer’s Internal Revenue Service Employee Identification Number and contact information for my files.
Upon receiving the signed assessment and supporting documents, they will be reviewed. If the applicability, validity and correctness of the claim is demonstrated, I will settle any debts. If I do not receive the requested documents within thirty (30) days, I will take it as your agreement that the assessment was faulty, that no taxes are owed, and that the claim is withdrawn with prejudice.

My Update

By Anna Von Reitz

Just so everyone knows, I am running ragged in mad-dog fashion.  There is so much going on.  I am constantly in motion and can't hope to keep up with correspondences and thank you notes and all the things that need to be done on a day to day basis, but I want you to know how much I and the Living Law Firm appreciate all the help.  

It's coming in from all angles and in all forms --- and we all feel truly blessed.  We are keeping noses above water and the work is going forward.  

We are still fighting the rather major costs of travel expenses, but we got all the cases filed and all the recordings recorded.  Job One is done. 

The rest, well, the rest we move forward on as need be.  As Jesus said, each day has its own troubles.  We will take them one by one, together. 

The First Round has involved the Clerks messing with the Docket Sheets.  This is basically a matter of you invoking one court and the Clerks placing your action in another court, the better to fleece you and make things convenient for them.  

They also try to mess around with the clearly stated names and capacities of the Parties. For example, you name "PETER M PIGG" as the DEFENDANT and the Clerks change the name to "Peter M. Pigg" and change not only the name, but the capacity in which the DEFENDANT functions.  

Please be aware and stay sharp about the details of how your actions are being presented on the Docket Sheets and as soon as you notice anything amiss, "take exception" to it and give Notice that a mistake has been made and request correction.  

If it seems that the Clerks are obstructing or manipulating, ask them flat out why they are doing this.  You will often learn things about the internal workings and assumptions of the courts that you would never learn otherwise. 

Our issues with the government are all arbitration actions and we are always acting as Foreign Nations with respect to any government actors. This is because any other kind of complaint or action is "at cross-purposes".  

Think about it.  If you bring suit against a Municipal character --- a STRAWMAN in a Municipal Court, you have thrown the STRAWMAN into Brer Rabbit's Briar Patch.  He is home free.  And there is no way that the Municipal COURT can act as a disinterested Third Party sitting in judgement between the Foreign Nation and one of its own franchisees. 

Same thing with the Territorial Courts.  They cannot possibly act without conflict of interest when the Plaintiff is a Foreign Nation and their own franchisees are the Defendant Parties. 

You have to use the Municipal COURTS as Arbiters against Territorial Officers and you have to use Territorial Courts as Arbiters against STRAWMEN, so that there are three separate and independent Parties in each Arbitration and the courts are not in gross conflict of interest or allowed to "redefine" your issues to reduce and control them as mere internal administrative actions that the courts can dispose of with impunity.  

Most especially, you will want to know and stand your ground on who you are and in what capacity you are acting.  Leave nothing to be assumed or presumed---- nail down the exact identity, nature, and role of every Party, including the Court --- before ever stating a claim or moving forward. 

This is just offered in the nature of a report from the field, where we are engaged every day and can observe how the Clerks of Court are circling the wagons and attempting to avoid actual prosecution of cases.

If you set it up correctly, you run the table.  Let them set the table, and you lose.

It's also wise to realize that just because there is no obvious conflict of interest, the Territorial and Municipal Governments have long been in collusion against Americans, and they help each other out whenever the opportunity arises.  Some Judges are more honest or more clannish than others, so you have to watch every move they make and every word they say and "take exception" to all the offers they and the Prosecutors make that are contrary to your interests.  

There are obvious offers such as when judges practice law from the bench and offer to enter a plea for you, and there are far more subtle offers as when the Clerks change the form of a name on a Docket Sheet, or a prosecutor calls you a "resident" or addresses you as "Mister".  

You must be very sharp and watchful and prompt and take nothing for granted nor on trust when you deal with these courts---- every step of the way from correcting Docket Sheets to posting bonds and beyond.  

Anyway, watch the Docket Sheets carefully.  The Clerks win many cases for themselves simply by making "mistakes" on the Docket Sheets.  You have 72 hours to respond once you see such mistakes.  

Thank you all for the continued support of our Team in the trenches, for money and for prayers and for information shared.

NOT Rocket Science, But....

By Anna Von Reitz

There are three kinds of "citizens" here in America.  

There are actual Americans who are citizens of their States --- Virginians, Californians, Dakotans, Kentuckians, New Yorkers, Texans...... These People live in the actual, factual, physically defined States of the Union.  

This is the actual Nation-State government "of the people, for the people, and by the people" that occupies the land and soil jurisdiction of every State.  The People are owed all the assets of their States, but instead, two branches of the Federal Government that survived the Civil War have been taking it upon themselves to take our assets into custody "for" us, for "safe-keeping".   

Thus it is that our Federal Employees have been ruling the roost and cracking the whip over the actual owners of the States, and undermining our rightful government in the process.  So, now let's look at them: 

There are British Territorial United States Citizens who are citizens of the British Commonwealth.  These Persons exist as military or corporate Officers and their Dependents, employed by the Territorial United States of America. [Notice this is not The United States of America, which is an unincorporated Federation of actual States and People.  This is a foreign corporation in the business of providing government services called "the" United States of America, Inc.]  These people operate within Military and Judicial Districts that overlay the land and soil of our States.  

They also operate the Territorial States of States organizations in every State.  These States of States organizations are supposed to be serving the British Commonwealth citizens on our soil, but they have usurped upon us and "presumed" that we are all British Commonwealth citizens.  They have done this by establishing illegal contracts and falsifying documents. 

There are also Municipal Citizens of the United States who are citizens of the Municipality of Washington, DC, that are franchised by the Holy See.  These PERSONS exist as Federal Civil Government Employees and their Dependents.  These are the Postal Workers, the Agency Workers, the Welfare Recipients, the Political Asylum Seekers, and the US Corporation Franchises. These PERSONS also work within "Federal Districts" that are variously defined: Postal Districts, School Districts, Service Districts.  These people operate the STATES OF STATES organizations and businesses like the DMV, FBI, IRS, etc.  They also got into the act and established unauthorized STATES OF STATES to, purportedly, serve all their Citizens.  

So you can be a Citizen of your State of the Union.  You can be a British Citizen of a State of State on our shores.  You can be a Municipal Citizen of a Municipal STATE OF STATE on our shores.  

Or, you can choose not to be a "citizen" of anything at all, and simply call yourself a "national" of any of the fifty States, or the [Territorial] United States of America, or the [Municipal] United States.    

Always remember that being a "citizen" implies an obligation to serve whichever government you are a citizen of in some capacity.  Maybe you agree to serve it as a voter or a juror or a tax withholding agent, maybe you are employed by that government and become a "citizen" of it that way.

The problem is that millions of innocent American State Nationals and American State Citizens have been "mistaken" for either British Territorial Citizens or Municipal Citizens ---- and railroaded accordingly.  

It always comes as a shock when we tell people, no, the United States Citizens have never been protected by any American Constitution, and neither have the Citizens of the United States been protected by our Constitutions.  Why?  Because they are citizens of entirely different governments.  

Think about it for five seconds. 

The States contracted originally with the Confederation of States (a group of commercial corporations doing business as the States of America with franchises doing business as, for example, The State of Georgia) to provide them with mutual governmental services--- a common defense, a common form of money, a common immigration policy, a common trade policy, etc. 

The States of America (Confederation), the Original primary provider of all these services in common was destroyed during the Civil War.  This Confederation included both the Northern States of States known as "the Union" and the Southern States of States known as the "Confederate States of America".  These were supposed to be "Reconstructed" after the hostilities ended, but they never were.  

Our intended Federal Government which is supposed to function with Three Branches --- Federal (States of America), Territorial (British), and Municipal (Rome) was destroyed.  

To gloss over the "missing piece" and continue the story line of three branches of government, we were told that the branches of government were "executive, legislative, and judicial"----- which they are, but only within each branch.  

In other words, each actual branch of the intended Federal Government structure had its own internal executive, legislative, and judicial functions, but that was not the original meaning of the "three branches of the Federal Government".  

Just step back and observe for yourself  that there are State of State (Territorial) Courts and STATE OF STATE (Municipal) COURTS, operating at the same time, and that "Congress" wears numerous hats, for example, "The Congress of the United States" and "The United States Congress".  

If it were just a simple business of executive, legislative, and judicial, this vast multiplicity of courts and kinds of government organizations would not exist. So you may be sure--- just by using your own eyes and ears--- that there is more to this than you were ever taught in school.  

Begin by asking yourself---- am I a citizen?  And if so, what kind?  American, British or Municipal?   Am I one of the People, or am I functioning as a Person or as a PERSON?   Who am I?  Maybe I am not a citizen at all..... but at least think about it and think deeply.  

American State Citizens and American State Nationals are both owed protection and peace---- especially from their own Employees.  United States Citizens and Citizens of the United States have no such pleasant guarantees.  

So think and think hard.  Are you an American, a US Citizen, or a Citizen of the United States?   Or are you no kind of "citizen" at all?   Whatever shoe fits, its up to you to sort things out and declare your political status.  Nobody can make your choices or live your life for you.  

As for the Living Law Firm, it is not our part to make choices "for" you, but to present the choices to you, to make you aware of the actual history and condition of your government, and explain how and why you are being denied the protections of the Constitutions: the Constitutions are still there, but because you are being misidentified as a United States Citizen or a Citizen of the United States, those protections are not applicable to you.
