About Small Contributions


By Anna Von Reitz

Some friends are only able to send $5 or $10 toward the expenses we face here and they feel bad that it couldn't be more.  But if you think about it, it's the staying power that counts and the commitment to give what we can. 

If you think about the immensity of the problem, all contributions are small. 

Only God knows whose $5 or $10 kept us in the black all these months of struggle, but there have been many times when it came down to that.  So let's hear it for those small donations that add up and keep the wheels rolling.  

When I was young I ran with a pack of very athletic Californians.  These people were all Norwegian scions and were tall and blond and built for all sorts of sports and outdoor activities.  They kept on and on about wanting to climb this particular (rather low, but still a "mountain") in the local area where we lived and I, the short and slightly flabby and only German member, kept saying--- "No, I have no interest in climbing any kind of mountain." 

Germans, being Germans, are pragmatic by nature.  It's built into the warp and weft.  We don't, if we run true to form, climb mountains for no reason.  We might walk for pleasure, we might even hike, but it is a rather rare German bird that sets off to climb a mountain just because it's there.  

Notice--- I didn't say I couldn't climb that mountain, just that I wasn't interested in doing so. 

Nonetheless, they kept at it, week after week and month after month.  Finally, in exasperation, I agreed to climb the mountain with them.  So, one Saturday morning, we set off.  

Of course, they immediately out distanced my stubby legs and were soon lost in the rain forest mist.  I was left chugging along far behind, so far behind that I could no longer hear their cheerful voices up ahead. 

But by then, I was disgusted to be climbing a mountain for no reason.  And I grimly plodded along, ever upward. 

A couple hours later I met the first one of them coming back down the trail. His  hiking boots had chafed his feet and he was limping home with blisters.  

My sympathies.  Despite my smallish physique, I had actually used my hiking boots enough to break them in and I was doing fine in that respect.  So I wished him well and kept climbing. 

One after another, for all their various reasons, I met them all on their way back down the mountain. 

I was all alone and the only one who made it to the top of the mountain late in the afternoon.  I had brought along a plastic garbage bag to pick up the beer cans and empty film cartridges and other detritus that climbers always leave behind at the summit.  Don't ask me why.  I am not of the mentality that climbs mountains for no reason.  

So I picked up the trash and took in the view and took photographs and headed for home, hauling the trash bag out and walking and climbing more swiftly going downhill in hopes of getting to the trail head before dark---- which I did. Just barely.  

My point is that the tortoise who endures and knows what it takes to climb a mountain is a better bet than the rabbit who doesn't, and the size of a contribution is not necessarily the measure of it, any more than the size of a climber determines their success.  

It's the will behind it all that matters.  It's the grit.  It's the decision we make to take action and keep climbing.  

Like the Widow's Mite, a small gift from small resources is the moral equivalent of a large gift from large resources. And it all counts.  Ten bucks a month over the course of a year is $120.  Not such a small donation, is it?  Not when you think and feel and see the bigger picture spread out before you. 

There are three elements to a lawful claim upon property --- status, standing, and jurisdiction. The only people who have established their correct political status on the public record, the only ones having the standing to bring a claim in behalf of our States of the Union, and the only ones left guarding the land jurisdiction of this country, are all those who have listened and taken action to reclaim their Good Names and correct the falsified political status records.  

We, ourselves, our band of brothers and sisters from all across this country, are the only ones determined enough and in position to rebut the claims of all the foreign Secondary Creditors of "the" United States.  We didn't want to climb this mountain, either, but here we are. 

Despite everything that the perpetrators allege and throw against us, we keep coming.  Despite the lies and the disruptions and the widespread ignorance and every other obstacle, we are building our Assemblies, too.  As each State Coordinator steps forward and serves notice that their State of the Union is populated, another miracle happens--- America is reborn.  

Soon, the immensity of all our "little" contributions will become more obvious, the impact of simple truth-telling and logic will emerge out of the confusion and the pile of purposeful lies and omissions that we have had to sort through.  That's another mountain we were not eager to climb.  

But we did so.  Today, I ask you to remember a great man you never knew. His name?  Bill Benson.  Bill climbed his mountain, too.  

As a retired forensic auditor for the State of Illinois, he began to suspect that something was wrong with the records and the claim that the Sixteenth Amendment (the Federal Income Tax) was ever ratified by the States.  

So he and a few others began the long, long trek, all across this country, digging into records in State Archives that nobody had looked at in a hundred years, getting Certified Copies, and painstakingly piecing together the proof that the Sixteenth Amendment was never ratified by the States of the Union. 

That proof, a two volume set of over-sized books published as "The Law That Never Was" absolutely documents the deceit and the fraud against the American People.   

As a thank you, the Powers That Be arrested Bill Benson on false federal charges and denied him the medication he needed to live.  

I suffered for him then and I suffer for him now.  

This afternoon I am told that the large platform scanner your contributions made possible completed the job of scanning every page of  "The Law That Never Was" into the digital form for The Library of the Continental Congress.  

The rats who are so famous for burning books will never be able to destroy the record he gave up his easy retirement and ultimately, his life, to create.  

Bill was hopeful that all his work and effort would bear fruit, that people in this country would look at the records and come to their own conclusions.  

There are no small contributions.  Write a letter, tell your kids, pass it on, elbow your best friend and fill them in.  Cash in your pocket change.  Take on a piece of the puzzle. Rebuke Satan. Collar a Congressman. Report their abuses and hypocrisy to the United Nations.  Do whatever you can.  And keep doing it.  

We're not only going to climb this mountain.  We are going to move it.  If we have to do it $5 at a time, that's how we will do it.  Raindrops make an ocean and single footsteps gain the summit --- never forget that.

A Proclamation: To Attorney General Barr and Secretary of State Michael Pompeo


By Anna Von Reitz

It has come to our attention that both of you may be ignorant of the actual history of this country. This in itself is normal, because none of us have been taught the actual history in school. However, those of us who have taken the time and made the effort to learn are in position to assist in clearing up several pervasive confusions.



First, the only entities involved in the "American Civil War" were Federal States of States, not the actual States of the Union. The American Civil War was in fact a mercenary conflict. It was never properly declared by any Congress and it has never been resolved by a Peace Treaty. Those Federal States of States, which are --- whether North or South --- all "Confederate States", have yet to be reconstructed, a circumstance that has never been fully explained to the American Public and which has never been corrected as a result.



Second, this circumstance leaves a third of the Federal Government inoperable, and from our perspective, the most important part: that which is supposed to be operated by Americans for Americans. The British Territorial contractors and the Holy Roman Empire's Municipal contractors eagerly entered the power vacuum created by this situation and secretively substituted their own "States of States" organizations for ours, operating like cuckoo birds occupying a nest. They also incorporated their service delivery operations, so that in fact, we have private, foreign-chartered, for-profit commercial corporations masquerading as our government.



Third, this is not what we are owed in terms of treaty or commercial contract, and it stands before the entire world as an affront to decency and good faith and service by both the Queen's Government and the Holy See, that we, the Americans, have not been fully informed and have not been assisted to restore the functions of the Federal Government.



Fourth, it is also an affront that our States have been accidentally-on-purpose mistaken for rival commercial corporations and our People have been mis-characterized both as combatants and as commercial vessels, when it has been plainly stated and well-established ever since the Civil War that we are a separate population with a sovereign civilian government of our own that you are all employed by.



Fifth, for your edification, The United States, a Union of soil jurisdiction states, controls the soil jurisdiction of this country. The United States of America, a Federation of land jurisdiction States controls the international jurisdiction of this country. Our States of America organization is supposed to be in control of the bulk of the Federal functions delegated under the constitutional agreements.



Sixth, because of the foregoing situation and out of self-interested deceit, both the British Territorial Government and the Holy Roman Empire's Municipal Government have been operating commercial corporations "in our names" and employing our Delegated Powers in unauthorized ways. The British Territorial Government has been operating as "the" United States of America and the HRE Municipal Government has been operating as "the" United States. These are not our Proper Names and it needs to be fully understood that nothing our employees do or say while acting as our agents in any way countermands what we tell you ourselves, nor does their bankruptcy affect us beyond the fact that we must find new service providers.



Seventh, this basic misunderstanding has led to a situation in which the British Territorial and Municipal Governments have imagined themselves to be the only governments present on our land and they have proposed that all Americans are born as Dual Citizens of their respective commercial corporations, owing duty to the Holy See and the British Territorial Government, which is deliberate self-interested misrepresentation of the facts. The Americans are still here, still minding our lawful and to put a fine point on it --- sovereign--- government of every state of the Union. We don't belong to you; you belong to us. You are our employees, not the Queen's, not the Pope's, and it is time for all these False Claims in Commerce to cease and desist.



Eighth, Americans are born as nationals of their respective States and those States are not subject to any commercial corporation on Earth. We are Minnesotans and Georgians, Californians and Texans. We are not born as nor do we choose to adopt either brand of Federal Citizenship --- neither United States Citizens nor Citizens of the United States. Those citizenship statuses were created under the respective constitutions and have no meaning apart from the constitutional agreements that both the Queen and the Pope stand in breach of.



Ninth, since the 1930's the HRE Municipal Government has been telling a most pernicious lie and making an absolutely outrageous False Claim in Commerce -- a claim that is false on the face of it. They have claimed that Franklin Delano Roosevelt's First Inaugural Address created a Public Trust and that all our assets, personal, private, and public, were rolled into this Express Trust. In fact, this is self-interested poppycock.



Tenth, Franklin Delano Roosevelt was being sworn in as President of the United States ---- the Municipal United States Government operated by the Holy See. He was addressing the Citizens of the United States --- the employees and dependents of the Municipal United States Government, and could not be presumed to be addressing anyone else just because they were in earshot. His language throughout is consistent with this interpretation and no other performance would have been legal.



Eleventh, Franklin Delano Roosevelt had no authority to establish any Express Trust related to rank and file Americans and no authority to conscript anyone on our shores. There is no evidence that any Public Trust was in fact established as a result of his verbiage; rather, there is evidence of illegal and immoral and unlawful "taking" of our property and assets and use of legal chicanery to falsely claim that our private property magically became part of the Public Charitable Trust (PCT) set up as a welfare trust for former plantation slaves in the wake of the Civil War.



Twelfth, no American was ever under any obligation to reply to or rebut Roosevelt's presumptions, because we were not addressed. The only persons having any such obligation to rebut were the Citizens of the United States at that time, and only a small portion of the population, approximately 15%, was or is legitimately in that political status then or now.



Thirteenth, these false presumptions which could only apply to a small percentage of the population, and which were never fully disclosed to anyone by Roosevelt's speech, have since been used to plunder and pillage and abuse and conscript millions of Americans in the greatest fraud and identity theft scheme in history---- which is now discovered and firmly rebutted as nothing more or less than commercial constructive fraud.



Fourteenth, as a result of the fore-mentioned collapse of the States of America Confederacy and the secretive usurpation that took place in the 1860's--by definition, the bulk of Americans were not operating in Commerce in 1933. A "gift" of a commercial franchise operated in our NAMES and conferred upon us without our knowledge or consent and used to make false claims of citizenship obligation upon us was an act of self-interested fraud and any acceptance of such gifts offered under color of law is revealed to be nothing but more crime and chicanery designed to alter our birthright political status as Americans in contravention of the Geneva Conventions.



Fifteenth, the foreign commercial corporations which have been operating on our shores in our purported "absence" and which have been promoting these crimes against us are being liquidated for cause, and no new contracts have been issued to the perpetrators. Our property being held by Attorney General Barr in his inherited capacity as Alien Property Custodian is owed immediate return to the rightful owners and all presumption that we are or ever were "Enemies" must be dropped along with all the False Claims against our property interests.



Sixteenth, as these acts were all promulgated by breach of international treaties and commercial contracts and were promoted via inland piracy, no change of ownership from the original American ownership can be implied. We find that the Congress has attempted to insulate itself from the curse of its own actions by adding a disclaimer to the enabling clause of every Act of Congress since 1861: "This Act shall not effect any rights thus previously established." In effect, every American who has ancestors who were present on our soil prior to 1861 is grandfathered in and owed every jot of all three Constitutions and all rights and benefits that have accrued since then.



Seventeenth, as a result of the foregoing: (1) no presumption of animosity or enemy combatant status can be advanced against our actual States of the Union nor our People; (2) no presumption of 14th Amendment citizenship can be applied to anyone who isn't both the progeny of former plantation slaves and also currently receiving unearned federal welfare benefits from the Public Charitable Trust; (3) STRAWMAN Municipal commercial trusts and utilities issued in our names must be presumed to be gifts without strings attached, admitted to be tax percuse, and we ourselves must be held harmless in all respects to the extent that those commercial entities are used for any purpose.



Eighteenth, prompt correction for all these ills and misunderstandings must be provided and those operating the court system must be re-educated and given new instructions fully informing them to stand down and cease making the presumptions under which they have been operating. Proper passports for actual Americans functioning as State Nationals or State Citizens must either be provided or we will provide them ourselves. Likewise, most Americans don't "drive" or operate commercial "motor vehicles" and they need to have proper identification of their private automobiles and their private status as travelers. Again, your agencies may be hired to provide this service or we will provide it ourselves, but you cannot just wave your hands and pretend that everyone in America is involved in interstate commerce and subject to commercial law.



Nineteenth, all the corporate law enforcement personnel need to be informed that they are operating in a private, for-hire capacity under the Pinkerton Laws and have no special authority or public bonding for what they are doing, that they are working for foreign, for-profit, privately held commercial corporations in a mercenary capacity and are not allowed to bully, harass, enter private property, or charge Americans for any infraction that does not directly impair the US Mail or actually occur on the trains or railroad right of way.



Twentieth, all the banks need to be informed that accounts held in the names of living people and unincorporated businesses cannot be misidentified as accounts belonging to commercial franchises of any US or USA CORPORATION and that such accounts are not subject to lien or seizure on the basis of the existence of Social Security Numbers or other evidence obtained under color of law, force, coercion, non-disclosure, or implied, unilateral, or unconscionable contract.



Twenty-first, the IRS and the Internal Revenue Service have both been operating wildly out of context and without authority on our shores and must be severely corrected and re-purposed. These organizations have been operating under the false presumption that all Americans are US Citizens or Citizens of the United States and playing a pillar-to-post confiscation fraud scheme, pretending that Americans have to be either US Citizens or Citizens of the United States, or both, when in fact Americans are owed full recognition of the fact that they are Americans without any federal citizenship obligations at all. Most Americans are not in receipt of any Federal income and are in fact holding the majority of Federal debt as Priority Creditors.



Twenty-second, these facts may be difficult to hear, bear, and deal with, but they are nonetheless facts, and they have been fully vetted, fully investigated, and are known throughout the higher levels of the global community. Any attempt to kill off your Priority Creditors so as to enforce these numerous and egregious False Claims upon us will be instantly recognized for the criminal activity that such attacks against civilian populations always represent. The lawlessness and criminality of the corporations and Boards of Directors involved will be fully exposed and the corporations responsible will be subject to liquidation.



Twenty-third, generations of Americans have been used and abused as mercenaries in wars for profit without their knowledge or consent. This practice, too, is built upon false presumptions of citizenship obligations that do not exist. The Selective Service needs to be shut down permanently, and all recruitment activity in the Armed Services required to fully disclose the nature of the work being offered, the risks, and the rewards--- such as they are. In the absence of any war directly threatening our borders, no pretense that they will be defending their homeland can be used as an excuse to con these young people into employment as mercenaries.



Twenty-fourth, our employees are required to act honorably and to provide Good Faith Service to their actual employers----that means, us, the American People. None of the circumstance we have described above meets those criteria and our extreme displeasure has been conveyed to both the Queen and the Pope and the United Nations. As things stand, both the Territorial and Municipal Governments are out of compliance with the Hague Conventions (Territorial) and the Geneva Conventions (Municipal) and the corporations responsible are continuing to act in a rogue, outlaw capacity with respect to their own employers as well as the international community at large.



Twenty-fifth, we are calling upon both the United States Attorney General and the Secretary of State to make correction within your respective spheres of duty. Mr. Barr is being called upon to Perform under The Constitution of the United States of America and The Constitution of the United States to return our private and public "alien" property unharmed and unencumbered. Mr. Pompeo is being called upon to provide a process by which Americans claiming their birthright political status may be recognized and identified and set free of these noxious false presumptions of federal citizenship.



Most Sincerely,

Anna Maria Riezinger, Fiduciary
