News Flash for the US Department of State....


By Anna Von Reitz

News Flash for the US Department of State....

….and also for the United States Department of State, the US State Department, the United States State Department, the US STATE DEPARTMENT, or however else you wish to cobble things up and rename and shuffle and shamelessly, criminally misconduct your business operations: 

We, the American States and People, are not Municipal Citizens of the United States, did not ever even reply to the offer made by Franklin Delano Roosevelt specifically to Municipal Citizens of the United States --- and were under no obligation to reply, since his remarks were obviously not addressed to us.  

Nor can we be presumed to be subject to any undisclosed, unilateral or implied commercial contracting process, as our commercial vessels have been dry-docked and otherwise moth-balled since 1868.  We couldn't have been operating in commerce nor be subject to any commercial law in 1933 and the issuance of commercial vessels in our names as purported gifts is just self-interested fraud.

Rather, you and your bosses are all under obligation to honor a normal course of business with us and to erase all trace of your improper presumptions against us and our property assets, especially the private property assets of average Americans. 

That means the lawful conversion and revenue of absolutely everything you unlawfully converted in 1933.  It also means providing correct passports. It also means providing access to the National Credit we are owed.

This jig is up. 

Correct your records and operations on our shores.  Return the National Credit and the land titles owed to the American States and People or be exposed in front of the whole world as a crime syndicate overdue for liquidation.

Know The Commonwealth History or Else


By Anna Von Reitz

Last week I had an amiable conversation with Joseph Gregory Hallett, the last of King John's offspring, and still Keeper of the Commonwealth, alive and kicking in New Zealand.  He is loyally beating the streets for the Commonwealth and that's fine with me--- within reason.

What is the Commonwealth? 

The Commonwealth as a concept developed in the Dark Ages when the Church was in receipt of private bequests from estates without heirs.  The Church took these gift properties and developed them to produce benefit for the Church and its Parishioners and for the support of the poor and sick.

The concept developed further under the auspices of the First Holy Roman Empire, when King Pepin the Short donated a whole kingdom to the Pope, giving the Church property to manage on the scale of a whole country. Additional holdings were secured under Charlemagne and the Church's role as a property manager and Earthly rulership expanded.  They applied the principles of The Commonwealth to their holdings and prospered.

Monasteries were supported by the labors and entrepreneurial skills of the Christian Brothers and Cloistered Orders, and to this day, we are all familiar with the vast range of products they continue to produce--- everything from applesauce to zinfandel, with the profit going to support Mother Church and local administration and outreach to the poor.

In England the Church struggled along and formed alliances with the Catholic Irish and Welsh rulers and gradually spread the concept of The Commonwealth throughout England--howbeit with less material success-- but when the Catholic Normans invaded England in 1066, things began to look up.  William of Normandy was generous to the Church and granted decent land and woodlots to be managed as part of The Commonwealth of England, for the support of the indigent, sickly, and poor. 

The original deal made the Church the steward of The Commonwealth lands and they were responsible for their oversight and upkeep.  The King retained the title to the land and the Church received the beneficial interest.

And then came King John, 126 years later, and The Holy Alliance, wherein the positions were reversed --- and the Church held the title to The Commonwealth lands both as Donor and Beneficiary, and the King became the Steward, responsible for their oversight and upkeep. 

That's how things sorted out with King John and that is still the position of his descendants, The Keepers of The Commonwealth.  They are essentially Trustees working for the Holy See to preserve and manage the lands and properties (like National Trust properties) that belong to The Commonwealth on a worldwide basis. 

So now Greg Hallett is stomping the circuit as King John's Heir, and making some remarks about The Magna Carta to the effect that it was "void" and had no force of law, etc., etc., etc. --- which is perfectly true with respect to The Commonwealth, but totally off-base and incorrect with respect to what is called "Greater England" and the Law of the Land established by the Norman Kings, which we know as The Magna Carta.

You can be perfectly sure that The Magna Carta applied and still applies to every cubic centimeter of British soil ever ceded to the Normans.

You can also be sure that the only land controlled by King John was in fact the land bequeathed to The Commonwealth: his nickname was "John Lacklands" precisely because he had no other land in England upon which to base his throne.

The Commonwealth started out with good intentions and for the most part has been competently managed for the Common Good of the Church and of the communities that the Church has served.  For that reason it has a long history of political support and in many areas it continues to provide better profits and more benefits than government-sponsored programs aimed at public property management.  The cynics among us maintain that most of this advantage is the result of de facto peonage, as the Church is able to make use of volunteer labor. 

So what does all this mean for us? 

For one thing, it means that for those whose landholdings derive from the Norman Conquest and from the Norman Kings who received sovereignty in their own right from William of Normandy, The Magna Carta has always been valid and accepted as the Law of our Lands for going on a thousand years, and we have no intention of allowing any claims otherwise.

America set sail under the sovereignty of William Belcher, one of the Norman Conquest Heirs, and so, for us, The Magna Carta is valid and does remain in effect as a basic foundation stone of our Land Law.  We take notice that the "land law" of The Commonwealth is actually nothing but the policies of the Holy See regarding property management; we respect their turf and hold our own. 

Any expectation or hope that we would be ignorant of all this or "drop the ball" and allow generalized claims invalidating The Magna Carta are sadly disappointed and the Holy See will have to go bark up some other tree to sell that bit of deceit. 

That said, we have been at peace with the Church for almost a thousand years and as embattled as it presently is as a result of its own indiscretions, let me suggest that the Church should be thankful that we are willing to honor our agreements even if they have manifestly failed to honor theirs. They should let well-enough alone, return our purloined property, and stop imagining that we are all chumps who failed History 101.

Those things that legitimately belong to The Commonwealth can still belong to The Commonwealth; all that property which has merely been seized upon and "presumed to be" donated, must be returned unharmed, free of debt or encumbrance.  We also expect that the people who have been disinherited by this chicanery and who have suffered de facto peonage will be compensated by the return of their individual land titles and access to their National Credit.

The motives that the Perpetrators of this scheme have for killing off their Priority Creditors--- exactly as they did in Nazi Germany--- have been duly noted and presented to the rest of the world. 

As a result, if they carry through on their plan to exterminate their creditors, the rest of the world will know what to expect from doing business with them. If they steal the assets they surreptitiously "borrowed" from the American States and People without returning them and without paying anything as interest, the rest of the world will know what to expect, too. 

We have what is popularly called "A Mexican Stand-Off".  We have demanded the return of our land titles and control of our actual assets, plus access to the National Credit we have earned.  They have scurried around made excuses and offered various dodges to avoid returning our property and avoid paying anything for the use of it. 

The most recent dodge is to try to claim that all our property was "donated" to some kind of non-existent Public Municipal Trust back in 1933 and rolled into a Commonwealth Estate. 

We have countered that that is pure hokum and shown exactly how flawed that claim is by deconstructing the language used by Franklin Delano Roosevelt in his First Inaugural Address, proving beyond any shadow of a doubt that he was addressing the Municipal Citizens of the United States and not the American People. 

We have also thereby demonstrated that Americans were not obligated to reply to an offer that was not and could not possibly be addressed to them, and that in any case, our commercial vessels were moth-balled in 1868, so that we could not in any way be presumed to be operating in commerce in 1933 and could not be subject to commercial contracting processes, either.

That is, unilateral and undisclosed and implied and secret contracting processes could not, did not, and do not apply to us, to our States, nor to our People, then or now. 

Ironically, this is proven true by the very circumstance that the Schemers used to substitute their own "State of State" corporate franchises for our original Confederate States of America.  They are caught in their own trap, as God Above would have it.

So not only is The Magna Carta still in effect, but the Commonwealth does not extend to America, nor any of the American States, nor to the individual estates of the people of this country.  Thank you, very much, for asking. And the Norman Kings are still standing, alive, well, and pissed off.

And now that we have settled those questions, may we ask when we may expect: (1) return of all our land titles and interests, both public and private, from our Trustees? and (2) access to our National Credit, which is needed to pay off bogus mortgages and other debts merely presumed to exist? 

We first made this demand in 1998.  We repeated it in 2008 and received sincere assurances that restitution would be forthcoming.  Instead, the agencies of the Municipal Government --- FBI, DOJ, IRS, FEMA, BATF, BLM, etc., have engaged in a crime spree of unprecedented proportions, and the UN Corporation has gotten involved and set up 800 internment camps for "resettlement" of Americans whose only crime is to be cheated by the Pope.

Its time for everyone to wrap their heads around this circumstance and more than past time for the Church and the Queen to get serious about returning the property owed to the American States and People and also to start paying back some reasonable portion of the National Credit that the people of this country are owed.

Twenty-one years have passed since James and I woke up and realized what was going on.  An entire generation of young Americans has sprung up in that time, and for the most part, they are even more dumbed-down than their immediate predecessors, less able to defend themselves from the outrages of those who pretend to be better than they are. 

We see from the circumstance who is truly elite and who is truly moral, as opposed to those hypocrites who have endeavored to steal the assets of their neighbors under a pretense of trust, and then planned to kill off and resettle their Priority Creditors.

And there is so much for the idea that we are or ever were Paupers, or ever part of The Commonwealth, either.

Instruction on the Festival of Pentecost

Rev. Fr. Leonard Goffine's
The Church's Year


What festival is this?
It is the day on which the Holy Ghost descended in the form of fiery tongues, upon the apostles and disciples, who with Mary, the Mother of Jesus, were assembled in prayer in a house at Jerusalem. (Acts II.)
Why is this day called Pentecost?
The word "Pentecost" is taken from the Greek, and signifies fifty. As St. Jerome explains it, this was the last of the fifty days, commencing with Easter, which the early Christians celebrated as days of rejoicing at the resurrection of the Lord.
Why is this day observed so solemnly?
Because on this day the Holy Ghost, having descended upon the apostles, the law of grace, of purification from sin, and the sanctification of mankind, was for the first time announced to the world; because on this day the apostles, being filled with the Holy Ghost, commenced the work of purifying and sanctifying mankind, by baptizing three thousand persons who were converted by the sermon of St. Peter; and because on this day the Church of Jesus became visible as a community to the world, and publicly professed her faith in her crucified Saviour.
Why did the Holy Ghost descend on the Jewish Pentecost?
Because on their Pentecost the Jews celebrated the anniversary of the giving of the law on Mount Sinai, and God would show by sending the Holy Ghost on this days that the Old Law had ceased and the New Law commenced. God also chose this time, that the Jews who on this day came together from all countries to Jerusalem to celebrate the Pentecost, might be witnesses of the miracle, and hear the New Law announced by the apostles.
Why is the baptismal font blessed an the vigil of Pentecost, as on Holy Saturday?
Because the Holy Ghost is the Author of all sanctity and the Fountain of baptismal grace, and because in the Acts (i. 5.) the descent of the Holy Ghost itself is called a baptism.
In the Introit of the Mass the Church rejoices at the descent of the Holy Ghost and sings:
INTROIT The Spirit of the Lord hath filled the whole earth, allel.; and that which containeth all things hath knowledge of the voice, Allel., allel., allel. (Wisd. I.7.) Let God arise, and his enemies be scattered: and let them that hate him, fly before his face. (Ps. 67.) Glory be to the Father and to the Son, and to the Holy Ghost, as it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.
COLLECT God, who on this day didst instruct the hearts of the faithful by the light of the Holy Spirit: grant us in the same spirit to relish what is right, and ever to rejoice in His consolation. Through our Lord Jesus Christ Thy Son, who liveth and reigneth with Thee, in the Unity of the same Holy Ghost, God, world without end, Amen.
LESSON (Acts II. I-II.) When the days of Pentecost were accomplished, they were all together in one place; and suddenly there came a sound from heaven, as of a mighty wind coming, and it filled the whole house where they were sitting. And there appeared to them parted tongues as it were of fire, and it sat upon every one of them:. and they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and they began to speak with divers tongues, according as the Holy Ghost gave them to speak. Now there were. dwelling at Jerusalem, Jews, devout men, of every nation under heaven. And when this was noised abroad, the multitude came together, and were confounded in mind, because that every man heard them speak in his own tongue: and they were all amazed, and wondered, saying: Behold, are not all these that speak Galileans? And how have we heard every man our own tongue wherein we were born? Parthians, and Medes, and Elamites, and inhabitants of Mesopotamia, Judea, and Cappadocia, Pontus, and Asia, Phrygia, and Pamphilia, Egypt, and the parts of Lybia about Cyrene, and strangers of Rome, Jews also and Proselytes, Cretes and Arabians: we have heard them speak in our own tongues the wonderful works of God.
Why did the Holy Ghost come upon the apostles in the form of fiery tongues?
The appearance of fiery tongues indicated the gift of language imparted to the apostles by the Holy Ghost, and inflamed their hearts and the hearts of the faithful with the love of God and their neighbor.
Why did a mighty wind accompany the descent?
To direct the attention of the people to the descent of the Holy Ghost, and to assemble them to hear the sermon of the Apostle Peter.
What special effects did the Holy Ghost produce in the apostles?
He freed them from all doubt and fear; gave them His light for the perfect knowledge of truth; inflamed their hearts with the most ardent love, and incited in them the fiery zeal for the propagation of the kingdom of God, strengthened them to bear all sufferings and persecutions, (Acts V. 41.) and gave them the gift of speaking in various languages, and of discerning spirits.
Festival of PentecostGOSPEL (John XIV. 23-31,) At that time, Jesus said to his disciples: If any one love me, he will keep my word, and my Father will love him, and we will come to him, and will make our abode with him. He that loveth me not, keepeth not my words: and the word which you have heard is not mine, but the Father's, who sent me. These things have I spoken to you, abiding with you: but the Paraclete, the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he will teach you all things, and bring all things to your mind, whatsoever I shall have said to you. Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, do I give unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, nor let it be afraid. You have heard that I said to you, I go away, and I come unto you. If you loved me, you would indeed be glad, because I go to the Father; for the Father is greater than I. And now I have ;told you before it came to pass, that when it shall come to pass you may believe. I will not now speak many things with you; for the prince of this world cometh, and in me he hath not anything. But that the world may know that I love the Father, and as the Father hath givers me commandment, so do I.

Why is the Holy Ghost expressly called "Holy," since this attribute is due to each of the divine persons?
Because He is the Author of inward sanctity and of all supernatural gifts and graces, and therefore to Him is especially ascribed the work of man's sanctification.
What does the Holy Ghost effect in man?
He enlightens him that he may know the truths of religion and salvation, and the beauty of virtue; He moves him to desire, to aim after and to love these things; He renews his heart by cleansing it from sin, and imparts to him the supernatural gifts and graces by which he can become sanctified, and He brings forth in him wonderful fruits of holiness.
What are the gifts of the Holy Ghost?
According to the Prophet Isaias they are seven: 1.The gift of wisdom, which enables us to know God, to esteem spiritual more than temporal advantages, and to delight only in divine things. 2. The gift of understanding, by which we know and understand that which our faith proposes to our belief; children and adults should pray fervently for this gift, especially before sermons and instructions in the catechism. 3.The gift of counsel, which gives us the knowledge necessary to direct ourselves and others when in doubt, a gift particularly necessary for superiors, for those about choosing their state of life, and for married people who live unhappily, and do not know how to help themselves. 4. The gift of fortitude, which strengthens us to endure and courageously overcome all adversities and persecutions for virtue's sake. 5. The gift of knowledge, by which we know ourselves, our duties, and how to discharge them in a manner pleasing to God. 6. The gift of piety, which induces us to have God in view in all our actions, and infuses love in our hearts for His service. 7. The gift of the fear of the Lord, by which we not only fear the just punishment, but even His displeasure at every sin, more than all other things in the world.
Which are the fruits of the Holy Ghost?
As St. Paul (Gal. V.. 22-23.) enumerates them, they are twelve: 1. Charity. 2. Joy. 3. Peace. 4. Patience. 5. Benignity. 6. Goodness. 7. Longanimity. 8. Mildness. 9. Faith. 10. Modesty. 11. Continency. 12. Chastity. To obtain these fruits as well as the gifts of the Holy Ghost, we should daily say the prayer: 
COME, Holy Ghost, into the hearts of Thy faithful, and kindle in them the fire of Thy love. 
  V. Send forth Thy Spirit, and they shall be created; 
   R. And Thou shalt renew the face of the earth.

Let Us Pray 
      O God, Who didst instruct the hearts of the faithful by the light of the Holy Spirit, grant us by the gift of the same Spirit we may be always truly wise, and ever rejoice in His consolation. Through Christ our Lord. Amen.
Why does Christ say: The Father is greater than I?
Christ as God is in all things equal to His Father, but as Christ was at the same time Man, the Father was certainly greater than the Man-Christ.
Why does Christ say: I will not now speak many things with you?
Christ spoke these words a short time before His passion, and by them He wished to say that the time was near at hand when Satan, by his instruments, the wicked Jews, would put Him to death, not because Satan had this power over Him, but because He Himself wished to die in obedience to the will of His Father.
