What Kind of "Assembly"?

By Anna Von Reitz

Some patriots point to the fact that there were Christian assemblies functioning as elements of the government that existed prior to the Revolution and try to make a case for thinking that Christian assemblies are what are referenced with respect to our lawful government.  This is not true. 

Our Founders made a very decided choice when constructing our government and they very purposefully did not create a theocracy of any kind.  

They wanted to avoid the kind of religious oppression that they and their ancestors experienced in Europe and they knew that in order to secure freedom of religion for themselves, they would have to guarantee freedom of religion for everyone else. 

The Separation of Church and State was adopted, and religion was (hopefully forever) admitted to be a private matter.  

This wise decision on their part and the creation of secular State Assemblies to run the government of this country, is what keeps radical Muslim and Jewish groups at bay and prevents the kind of religious strife that consumes other countries to this day.  

So our State Assemblies are not Christian assemblies and not meant to be. Our State Assemblies are secular in nature, and everyone of every creed, color, and ethnicity is welcome to participate. 

Another important point about our State Assemblies, is that they are not State-of-State "Assemblies".  

Along with the other semantic deceits that have crept into popular use is the misuse of the word "Assembly" to describe State-of-State organizations composed of U.S. Citizens or even "citizens of the United States".  

These organizations are properly called "societies" or "associations" ----  but the pernicious mis-labeling of these groups has led to no end of confusion and continued attempts by U.S. Citizens and Municipal citizens of the United States to form "assemblies". 

State Assemblies are formed by the American People claiming their singular allegiance to their State of the Union.  

Any group of American Persons owing allegiance to the British Monarch or the Pope, is not an assembly by definition, and everyone concerned needs to be fully aware of that fact. 

This is why actual State Assemblies are at such pains to be sure that all members complete their paperwork and declarations and record the same, so that the honor and nature of the State Assembly is unsullied and their authority is unquestionable with regard to the land and soil of this country.  

Any one who wishes to retain any vestige of allegiance to the British Monarch or the Pope is foreclosed from joining the State Assembly and operating as a State Citizen.  Our Forefathers separated the jurisdictions to prevent conflicts of interest and we maintain that separation for the same reasons. 

Finally, let it be noted throughout that while our Public Government is Secular and Non-Sectarian, our British and Papal Subcontractors have adopted structures opposed to our government.  

The British Territorial Government is a democracy. 

The Papist Municipal Government is a theocracy.  

And our actual government is neither.  

So, when you join an actual State Assembly as a State Citizen, be prepared to chuck all other affiliations and allegiances at the door.  Realize that you are not part of any democracy or a theocracy of any kind anymore; you are instead one of the living progeny, one of the People of this country, living in a republican State of the Union.  

Actual State Assembly = republican State of the Union = American People = Jural Assemblies.

Subcontracting British Territorial Government = Democracy = U.S. Citizens = Jural Societies and Associations.

Subcontracting Municipal Government = Theocracy = "citizens of the United States" = Jural Commissions and Councils.

When our actual State Assemblies encounter would-be members who don't (1) knowingly and willingly produce their proper Declarations or (2) fail to publicly record the same or (3) persist in speaking and acting in terms of Federal or Municipal code (which is all foreign law to us), or (4) follow a pattern of trying to use the Assembly for their personal grievances or (5) cause disruption to the good order and function and credibility and honor of the Assembly ----- our Assemblies are encouraged to educate such people if possible, and to, if necessary, ban them from participation.  

Having the right to participate in a State Assembly is based upon acceptance of the grave public responsibility involved.  This requires a thorough understanding of exactly which level of government the actual State Assembly occupies and the capacity in which the State Assembly acts.  

Those who mistake the actual State Assembly for a State-of-State "Assembly" (should be called a "Society" or "Association")  and those who would attempt to commandeer our State Assembly to function as a State-of-State level entity, must be barred from participation.

  1. Anna, the requirement for to hold an office prior to the adoption of the Constitution was to be a Christian. That requirement was removed when the Constitution passed. The book, Documents Related to New England Federalism 1800-1815 by Henry Adams has correspondence between the New England Federalists which shows the goal of the Constitutional Convention was to overthrow the Articles of Confederation and thus the original Country. Under The Cope of Heaven by Patricia M Bonomi is another source, Treason in America by Anton Chaitkin a very detailed explanation of the removal of orthodox Pastors in the North and South in the same manner which Great Britain had completed with the Hindus in India. Heavenly Merchandise by Mark Valery on how the Puritan's tried to manage the Colony by biblical standards. James McPherson's The Political History of the United States During the Great Rebellion has a section on a Convention where:

    To return to 1864; at a Convention held in Allegheny City, Pennsylvania, Congress proposed an amendment to the Constitution concerning Christianity:

    Resolved, First, That we deem it a matter of paramount importance to the life and prosperity and permanency of our nation that the Constitution be so amended as fully to express the Christian national character.
    Resolved, Second, That we are encouraged by the success attending the labors of the friends of this movement to persevere in the hope that, with the blessings of God, it will speedily result in the consummation of its great object.
    Resolved, Third, That the late proclamation of his Excellency the President of the United States, recommending the observance of days of national fasting, humiliation, and prayer, as suggested by the Senate, for the purpose of confessing our national sins, which have provoked the divine displeasure, and of imploring forgiveness through Jesus Christ; and also days of national Thanksgiving for the purpose of making grateful acknowledgments of God’s mercies; we have pleasing evidence that God is graciously inclining the hearts of those who are in authority over us to recognize his hand in national affairs, and to cherish a sense of our dependence as a nation on Him. (pg 259 of the Political History by James McPherson).

    The Founding Fathers had the separation of Church and State because the Quakers, Baptists, Congregationalist, Anglicans, Prysbterians, Catholics and Luthrans were all different. England had a state church which persecuted the non-conforming Churches. The Founding Fathers were avoiding having one denomination as a State Church. During the 7 years of the Revolution there were 17 different times the leaders had days of fasting and repentance held in different Churches. One last book: To the Victor go the Myths and the Monuments. The History of the first 100 years of the War Against God and the Constituion by Arthur R. Thompson.

    There are many more books which also document the flavor of the beginnings of the Country. Despite the hard and sincere work of many there is no amount of paperwork which is going to fix this problem.

  2. Maybe if you break down the word Republican you can find it Republic....
