More Practical Help for State Nationals -- Banking

By Anna Von Reitz

In order to get by and thrive in life, you have to have a reasonable concern for "the other fellow" --- your family, your workmates, and yes, public employees, shopkeepers, veterinarians.... the list goes on. You also have to deal with bankers.

Most of the problems people are having with banks --- at least those that come over my desk --- are self-created and can be fixed just as quickly as they start.

Let's review some basics.

You are allowed by law to transact your business as you wish. You can, by law, use Federal Reserve Notes or United States Notes, either one. So, why not choose to use the lawful currency, United States Notes? This helps pay down the so-called "National Debt" and helps everyone in this country, including you.

The use of United States Notes presents a paper problem for the bank, because at any given time, most banks don't stock a lot of United States Notes, and they are worried that you are going to walk up to their cashier and want to cash out your account in United States Notes. If they ask, assure them that that is not your intention.

Not having enough United States Notes on hand could be a cause of embarrassment for the banks, or worse, cause people to think the bank is insolvent, etc., and cause a "bank run".

In reality, that is an extremely unlikely scenario, and denominating the funds in your accounts as United States Notes isn't actually the worry of the individual banks, because the government backs those denominated funds internationally as SDRs.

So, no actual worries for the banks, and you are, meanwhile, paying down the National Debt and making sure that your funds won't be subject to any bail-outs or bail-ins or other shenanigans.

If you bank is edgy about your decision to denominate the funds in your accounts as United States Notes, just sit them down and explain what I just explained to you. Many small town bankers are not all that familiar with the currency laws and the use of United States Notes. Set them at ease. It's your decision.

Next point.....

There is no reason to be scared of using a Social Security Account Number when setting up a bank account. The banks use this information to insure against losses, but if they get caught doing anything inappropriate with your Social Security Account, they get fried and served for lunch.

Social Security Numbers function as both CUSIPS and AUTOTRIS account numbers. The familiar version with dashes is the CUSIP account set aside for making charges. The much-less familiar AUTOTRIS version without dashes is the credit side of things. This is a direct demand account that FDR established "for" you without your knowledge or consent and dubbed a "special trust account" --- that you haven't known about or had access to. How convenient.

This "special trust account" was created by Executive Order 2039 and technically applied only to Municipal Employees....but via non-disclosure and fraud, the perpetrators entrapped almost everyone and then used it as the excuse to steal your name, your assets, your rights, and in many instances, even your lives.

That "trust account" is yours and it's time that you had the benefit of it.

So understand and make sure the bank understands that when they ask for your Social Security Number that they are asking for access to your trust account and to your Signature for their use as a rubber stamp---let them know that you are aware of what they are doing and that you will hold them individually 100% commercially liable if they do anything at all inappropriate with this information. To clip their wings be sure to use a "byline" and "without prejudice" and a small copyright notice (a small "c" surrounded by a circle) when you sign the Signature Card.

That identifies that particular signature as your own unique creation and places it under your private copyright. That means that not only will they be fried and served for dinner if they mess with your account, they will be deep-fat fried.

With that caveat, go forth and conquer.

The exact verbiage to safely endorse the back of a check and denominate the funds in "lawful money" --- is:

By:_________________________ (c)

All rights reserved. Redeemed in lawful

money. 12 USC 411.

Please note that I don't have a copyright symbol in this program so the (c) above should actually be a small "c" that is completely encircled.

Use your Upper and Lower Case Signature to sign checks, like you were taught in school, and don't use any exotic punctuation or odd or inappropriate abbreviations like "ar" or "LS".

After all --- "ar" might mean "all rejected" or anything else at all, and "LS" --- "Living Soul" certainly doesn't belong on a check.

Also consider that if you were a bank and someone was placing a restriction on their signature using unknown abbreviations, you would have cause to be alarmed, too.

Just think about what you are doing and in which arena you are operating and play it straight. Most banks are aware of their fiscal responsibility to their customers and are only asking that you be reasonable and explicit --that is, honest, about what you are doing and what you expect of them in return.

So spell it out. Say, "All rights reserved." or "Without prejudice". That's perfectly okay for you to say or do and nobody should have any concern about that --- but "ar" or "wp" won't do.

Admittedly, if you get numerous checks you could get writer's cramp doing endorsements, so get a self-inking rubber stamp at a copy shop, and all you have to do is add your signature.

Finally, you should be aware that there advantages to running your affairs as a small independent business which are "corporate" but not "incorporated". This places your business squarely in the realm of international trade, which offers you protections when conducting business with commercial (incorporated) corporations and makes it clear that you are not subject to commercial presumptions.

Ah, so. When a commercial corporation tries to attack you or seize your bank account they find it to be a much more difficult proposition. Most of them, including the IRS and other privateers prefer to go after lower hanging fruit.

If you are dealing with a commercial bank (most are) they will want you to have a business license when setting up an account, which is to protect them, not you. But having met that hurdle for a time, and presuming that you are conducting your business exclusively with lawful money, you can let the license lapse and operate as a truly private business, even though you are using the services of a commercial bank.

The commercial corporations can mess with their own script and control their own affairs and employees within reasonable limits. The transition from a licensed small business with limited commercial obligations to a private business functioning entirely in the realm of international trade should be viewed as similar to the transition when you move from one state or country to another.

Most banks are dependent on small businesses which by far employ the greatest number of people in any given community and which generate the lion's share of GDP. The last thing they want to do is drive your business away.

That said, the banks need to get their act together, too, and show you the care and respect that you deserve. If they treat you well and keep your accounts secure, they've done their job. If not, the pendulum swings and other alternatives must and will be sought.

I have a very handy reference on my desk that shows how to convert a "Federal" Credit Union into a State Credit Union --- and I am not talking about a "State of State" Credit Union, I am talking about an actual State Credit Union.

Credit Unions naturally belong in the realm of international trade and are perfect for the needs of average people and small businesses. Most of us would be well-served and well-advised to do most, if not all, of our business with credit unions as a result. We simply do not need the array of services and regulations associated with big commercial banks.

So just sit down for a few minutes out of your life and think seriously about what is best for you and for your country. How do you want to conduct business? What services do you need? How are you going to sign your checks? Which currency will you use? What impact does that decision have on your funds and accounts--- and on your country?

Although money and often, lack of it, consumes an inordinate amount of effort and concern in our lives, we are taught almost nothing about it in school ---- for the simple reason that what you don't know benefits crooks and leaves you more vulnerable to pirates.

When you think about the efforts that you make to earn money, doesn't it make sense that you should think about what money is? What credit is? What securities are? How banks work? How important is your signature? How can it be abused?

There are many questions that most Americans never ask and we really should --- for our own sake and the sake of our country, too.

Most people choose a bank at random. They go to that bank because their parents went to that bank, or because some high-flyer friend uses it, or because its on the way home. That's not the way to choose a bank.

Banks are run by people and you want a bank that shares your values and which offers the services you need.

For most of us, that means we want a bank that is operating under a State Charter and which has been in business for a long time serving people just like us.

Let's face it, most of us have no reason or need or ability to be transferring millions of dollars around the globe, so why would we take our business to one of the huge, glitzy commercial banks?

No. Most of us need a Mom and Pop bank or credit union, one that is locally chartered and controlled by actual people that we either know, or can get to know.

Most of the bankers I have met in my lifetime are extremely lonely people. Most of them really do care about their communities and their employees and the services they provide. Within the weird world of a credit-debt currency system and double accrual accounting, they are doing the best they can.

And they love it when they get an "Attaboy!" or "Attagirl!"

So instead of treating your bank like a convenient public toilet, stop a moment and think about your bank. What do you really know about it? It's history? Who runs it? The laws and regulations that impact it?

If you have questions or concerns --- ask, discuss, learn. Most bankers are happy to share their expertise and will give good advice if they are asked.

As with any other human endeavor, you have Good Guys and Bad Guys.

So take the time to actually think about your bank and your banking needs and do some research and soul-searching. It's your money and your credit----and your life.

How do you want to conduct your business to best benefit yourself, your community, and your country as a whole?

Practical Help for State Nationals

By Anna Von Reitz

This is for those who have declared and recorded their proper political status as Joe Average Americans, and who are not Federal Employees or Dependents. 

Federal employees and those who are actually receiving unearned welfare "benefits" have other options and other things to say "in-house" to the members of the Congressional Delegations.

For the rest of us, it is obviously necessary to light a fire under their collective rumps.  There are many measures that we can take to compel these yahoos to perform and to clean up their own Mess.  Writing a simple letter and flooding their offices with complaints about one supremely important topic --- the remedies you are owed --- is one way to do it. 

We have begun a program to secure these remedies for Americans who have taken the time and made the effort to correct their political status.  Thus far, the Internal Revenue Service and "Treasury Department" are attempting to stonewall us and unreasonably restrict access to remedy.  They need direction from their bosses --- the members of Congress; and we need to give the members of Congress their marching orders, too. 

No need to be rude, just get your points across. 

I will note that if you want to send an email to "YOUR" Congressional Delegation, most of their email programs require you to choose a "title" or "office" --- this is so they can pretend that you are actually agreeing to serve in such an office and are their employee, instead of being their employer.

As this is a "required field"  go ahead and choose any "office" you wish--- then explain and disclaim this at the very beginning of your email to them. 
I usually choose "Marine Corps General" and then explain that I actually don't occupy any Office of Person, but was forced to choose one by the email program and so, chose "Marine Corps General" because that's how I feel ...

To help get you thinking and started, here's a sample of the kind of letter you --those who have declared their actual political status --- can write: 

Dear Senate Delegates:
I have suffered multiple attempted acts of commercial piracy because you have failed to properly instruct Federal subcontractors concerning the exemptions that average Americans are owed and also failed to expedite the Mutual Off-set Credit Exchange I am owed.  See Public Law 73-10.  
Your failure to properly oversee and administer this process has led to the accumulation of the so-called "National Debt" --- a situation that must be corrected.  It has also led to millions of Americans suffering unjustifiable foreclosures and allegations of federal tax debts that they don’t owe.
There is a Treasury Direct Account that was created in my name without my knowledge or consent as a result of FDR's Executive Order 2039.  That "special trust account" is supposed to be used to off-set public debts and to hold me harmless as a [man/woman] who holds no Office of Person in the Federal or State of State Governments.   
In the hard copy version that will follow this email, I am enclosing a letter to the Internal Revenue Service [or other agency, court, etc.] that I have been forced to send after a prolonged failure on their part to respond to me and continued harassment and false allegations of federal tax debts brought against Federal PERSONS that I never knowingly authorized to exist. 
You will note that I have also been forced to file liens against the perpetrators and to "offer" to enforce commercial and legal sanctions against them.  This is regrettable, because for the most part, they don’t know that they are doing anything wrong.  They’ve been left in the dark like everyone else.
I consider the Courts and the out of control Federal Agencies to be at fault for this circumstance and even more so the banks and lending institutions including the USDA, but ultimately, I consider you all to be at fault for this inland piracy against average Americans who have not been given anything like “full disclosure” and who are left operating in the dark as a result of your continued failure to provide disclosure and failure to properly instruct your employees, including members of the court systems.  
As you are choosing to perform in an undisclosed capacity as members of an "incorporated" government, I should also point out that you are yourselves without any protection of sovereign immunity and that the municipal plenary oligarchy you are serving is out of compliance with its charter --- that old-fashioned thing known as The Constitution of the United States.  
We, Americans, will still be here, but the continued existence of "the" United States is another matter.  The Pope issued your municipal charter and the States and People hold the other end of the string.  Now that we are, by dint of our own efforts, aware of all the nasty things FDR did, we have taken appropriate action to declare our proper political status, organize the States of the Union, and prepare to finish the long, long overdue "Reconstruction" of the Federal Government.
If you have an interest in the well-being of this country and any shred of honor, it is well past time to take an interest in the malfunctioning of your subcontractors and the harm that your failure to properly instruct your own employees is causing to them and everyone else. 

NOW, obviously, you have to tailor things to your own circumstance.  
If you haven't filed punitive liens, don't say you have.  Put in your own information about whichever agency or agencies you have a beef with. Make it clear that you are owed remedy and are being stonewalled and prevented from obtaining it by mis-informed Federal Employees.  
Light a fire under them.  Do so by the millions.  They deserve it.

It is “Cognitive Dissonance”

By Anna Von Reitz

Cognitive Dissonance occurs when new information doesn’t fit into our learned pattern of assumptions.  Such information tends to bounce out of our minds, like a pin ball hitting a bumper.  

The information I teach isn’t actually hard to understand. It’s not rocket science—- but it can feel that way because of Cognitive Dissonance and our built-in tendency to avoid, shut out, and if possible— ignore, whatever doesn’t fit neatly into our own conceptualization of the topic at hand.  

How difficult is it to understand that the Reconstruction that was supposed to happen after the Civil War didn’t happen? 

And an important part of our intended Federal Government has been missing ever since? 

So we need to.get.organized and do the job, right? 

What good does it do to drain the swamp, if you don’t also remove the dam that’s causing the problem in the first place?

We are missing the largest, most important, and only truly American portion of the Federal Government because the Reconstruction is still hanging. 

This circumstance is what is causing the breakdown of accountability and discipline — it’s the dam creating The Swamp. 

So let’s try to consciously move past the Cognitive Dissonance and into the clear light of new understanding.
