Embrace the Place -- A Message for Our Assemblies

 By Anna Von Reitz

When I was young circumstances were often difficult. My Father was a German in the midst of Post-World War II America, and even though he fought on the side of the Allies and considered himself an American through-and-through, not everyone else saw it the same way.
Many people just looked at his name and his all-too obviously German face and did things like spit at him. And at me. Or, slam me into a set of lockers so hard my shoulder was damaged for life. Or trip me going down stairs. Or, or, or. The whole family suffered from this enduring prejudice.
My Father couldn't get a decent job, even though he was highly skilled and well-educated. For twenty years after the war, he patiently dug ditches and shoveled cow manure and split wood to stay warm, while his former Air Force buddies landed cushy University jobs or built successful businesses.
Sometimes, especially when I was hurt by all of this, his patience grew thin. Sometimes, he had to go down in the basement and just punch a punching bag until he was exhausted.
How do you fight something as insidious as racial prejudice? Something unseen? An evil that hides in people's minds, and bears fruit in unexpected ways and odd places? Buying a loaf of bread? Going to the movies? Why shouldn't anyone be able to do things like that in a "free" country?
So when my African American and Hispanic and Asian and American Indian friends complain to me, assuming that, of course, I am a nice little white girl who never suffered from racial prejudice ---and think that I don't know what they are talking about---- oh, yes, I do. So did my parents and my older sister, too.
It was the same way for us, in the wake of World War II.
Still, we didn't change our names. We didn't apologize to anyone. We just "embraced the place" God put us and stayed the course, stayed on the High Road, and took joy in those small daily triumphs that come to people who try to do what is right. We made friends. We survived. So what if I wore old clothes or drove a car that was fifteen years old?
Today, I am not afraid of poverty, because I have been poor. Today, I place no value on a person's clothes or circumstance. Today, as a result of those rough beginnings, I have a different set of values, knowledge, and experiences than I would have gained in a "better world".
The irony is, that that world of prejudice and meanness, those years of hard-scrabble, made me a stronger, wiser, more discerning person. I am grateful for it now, because I see the fruits of what we went through.
In the same way, our Assemblies are going through a hard transition from war to peace. There are many people who are frightened and confused, many detractors, many who have unreasoning prejudices and pure, dumb ignorance that have to be dealt with.
And this is all taking place against a backdrop of entrenched institutionalized deceit and corruption.
A difficult situation? You bet.
But the fruit is coming, and the time when you see through to the end, when you realize what you have gained from going through the refining fires.
My Ex-O, Harold, and I had a breakfast meeting a couple days ago. He's a very experienced man with a history of managing large corporate endeavors.
He wagged his head at me and said, "There's positional leadership and situational leadership, and they (the Assemblies) need to understand that."
Most of us are far more familiar with Positional Leadership. Someone came down and smote Joe Blow with a Magic Wand and Fairy Dust and made him The Leader. Maybe it was a rigged ballot box, or because he had a "special relationship" with the former boss's daughter. Maybe he just slogged his way up the food chain by accident, but there he is: The Leader, for better or worse, and everyone has to do what he says, because, well, he's The Leader.
Been there and done that.
But there is also Situational Leadership, where everyone is equal and striving toward a goal. That's what happens when one guy reaches out to save a drowning swimmer and another guy reaches out to save the first would-be rescuer, and pretty soon you have a whole chain of people pulling against the rip tide.
Situational Leadership comes about in unsettled times, times of emergency, times when you just have to work together to get things done --- no hierarchy, no "social order", no caste, no class, no advanced degrees required. It happens on a much more basic level, something that is almost instinctive, where suddenly everyone steps back and each one of us just "knows" what we can best contribute. So we do. And it all works out.
Joe takes the wheel. John holds the door. Stan loans a computer. Roy drives the truck. May Ellen brings the coffee. Jim makes the sandwiches. Pablo brings the folding table. Marc loans space in his garage. And before you know it, what needs to happen, happens.
Why? Because at some deeper under-the-skin level, we all know who we are and what we have to contribute, and when push-comes-to-shove, we step forward and we do what has to be done.
That's Situational Leadership, and if you think about it, it makes perfect sense that that is the kind of leadership our Assemblies, which operate as Committees of the Whole, have inherited. Our American Government was formed on an emergency basis. There was no time or place for an entrenched and formal hierarchy to form or to act.
Then, as now, there weren't a lot of offices to fill and job descriptions set in cement, only jobs to do somehow and little or nothing to do them with. Our ancestors faced exactly the same dilemma and used the same tools, guided by Situational Leadership.
In the military and in the corporations, people advance by criticizing and undermining competitors. Poking fingers and tattle-taling are often rewarded. Making oneself appear to be better by tearing down someone else is the order of the day. Gossiping around the water cooler and snarking about every fault and foible is traditional.
But in our Assemblies, it's exactly the opposite.
When we see someone failing for lack of skills, we rush in to fill the gap and help them. When we perceive a brother falling by the wayside, we pick up his pack and get him back on his feet. When things start to go off-track, we check our compasses --- we don't blame other people because they are lost.
Here, in our Assemblies, the people who "rise to the top" do so, because they put themselves into the gaps and make things work.
My Mother, if she were here, would tell you, "Embrace the space God gave you on this Earth."
Take it, own it, lumps and all. Be your own heroes. Don't wait for someone else. Just the fact that you are here is all you need to know. Go forth, and conquer all the obstacles, all the ignorance, all the questions, all the lacks. Do it together on an "emergency basis" and do the best you can.
We're not here to blame each other. We are here to save America.
We can always correct mistakes. The one mistake we can't correct is never getting started, never doing anything for fear of not having an official stamp of approval, or not signing in the right color of ink.
Most of the Revolutionary War was fought by men who didn't own a uniform.
Remember that and remember them. Take the message to heart.
This is your country, and these are your countrymen. That's your Main Street. It doesn't belong to the Chinese or the Pope or the Queen or the Lord Mayor. It's your responsibility.
If the THING in Washington, DC, is off-track or the State-of-State Governor is doing the wrong thing, it's up to you to get organized and take the reins back and settle things. Why? Because it's your country and you have the Public Duty.
As new people come into the Assemblies --- and they are doing so in droves right now --- they are going to come in expecting an authoritarian structure to guide them. That's all they are familiar with. Ask them to recall an emergency in their own lives, a time when they simply had to do what had to be done, without waiting for the Firemen or the Police to arrive--- a time when it was just "you, me, and the gate post".
Then nod sagely and say, "Well, yup. That's where we are now. We have a Coordinator who can get answers to questions, we have a Chairman who can conduct meetings and get business done, but this is a Committee of the Whole, one big committee with sub-committees that work on special projects. We all work together and support each other to restore our government, bring Americans home to their native jurisdiction, and enforce the Constitutions and the Public Law. There's no big pecking order, everyone just weighs in, contributes what they can, and we go from there. Any questions?"
The Newbies may stare at you like you are a Talking Horse. You may have to repeat this exercise several times. You may even meet people who have never been in an emergency situation where they had to take charge of things and deal with them. If so, share a few stories so they get the idea.
Maybe have a once-a-week half hour Orientation Meeting for new people.
Another common misunderstanding of Newbies is that they are fighting against "the government" ---- which they identify as any authority whatsoever. Years of abuse by the Territorial Government or the Municipal GOVERNMENT has fostered a hatred of all government and these wild-eyed anarchists arrive in our Assemblies with the idea that we either join their campaign to wreck vengeance on the perpetrators or we are part of the problem.
The point is that we are not the perpetrators, but an entirely different government--- a lawful, reasonable, peaceable government that is formed to protect people and their property assets from predatory commercial corporations and foreign powers.
We already have the lawful means to solve our own problems.
We have the ability to form our own courts and invoke Ex Parte Milligan. We have access to the Public Law of this country. And we have the means to enforce it.
Revolution isn't necessary; we already did that.
We simply need to learn who we are and stand in our own power and enforce our own jurisdiction and our own Public Law in order to sort everything out.
The sooner we do what we need to do, the sooner that the whole world can get back on course.
If you have would-be anarchists coming into your Assemblies, form a committee and as a small group, take them aside and have the necessary discussion: "We can't afford disruption. This is an urgent situation. We need you to get on board and help, and if you feel that you can't do that, for whatever reason, we need you to leave and go about your own business. We aren't denying that you are an American or depriving you of anything, but there is serious business to be attended to, and your personal grievances have to wait."
Most people, at least those who aren't foreign infiltrators, or psychotic, can grasp the fact that the needs of the many do outweigh the needs of the one.
No matter how compelling or awful an individual situation may be at this moment, we cannot allow brushfires to slow down or sidetrack the effort to stop the arsonists.
We have provided the Criminal Incident Report Forms and a process to prosecute them both in public and in private, but disruption of Assembly functions and brow-beating and blaming and "drama" can't be allowed.
We are not at fault for these circumstances. We didn't create them. We don't condone them. But to effectively and permanently stop them, for everyone concerned, we have to keep our eyes on the prize, form our own courts, and keep moving forward.

God bless and speed your efforts, give wings to your feet, and gladness to your hearts. We are making great progress and each and every day brings new opportunities and new horizons into view.

  1. Seems since I came to know Creator and have held my heart open seeking guidance is seems to come and flows though me like an instrument. Fy, first thing learned like first trip around people going to a nearby town was simple courtesy opening a door or helping someone smile and the reward is not money just a precious feeling of knowing thats the right thing to respect and care for all and hope those still lost can overflow with it too

  2. Well said Anna and AirCarvings. There is a huge difference between a good tune and a bad one. How I long to see and hear the harmony of a society in tune with one another. πŸ™πŸ’ž

  3. Bless you Anna , that is so well put.

  4. Ive have never been one to try and disrupt an honest, whole hearted organisation just because im an "anarchist". Ive had questions as well as many others. And have gotten shunned like I havent done any "research" and am told to go do more, or something along those lines. As if the opposing person had the answer. In my line of work, when an apprentice comes up with a question of a misunderstanding (and is using words from the code, hes obviously been looking into it) he has with the codes we follow, I've stayed after work and pulled out my code book to clarify a misunderstanding that an up and coming electrician had, for the greater good of my trade in a whole. Ive even pin pointed a code for some to read when it was a simple misunderstanding. And I'm still here doing the same thing for over 10 years now unscathed. So that leaves me to believe the other journeymen that would react negatively to questions, either a) felt worried they'd be easily replaced by young blood, or b) just didnt know how to answer. But is there a c) some nefarious reasons to watch those coming up behind them to fail? I cant bring my self to believing that, but can only wonder if maybe I should. Tribalism is a standard amongst hierarchies. So I would proudly say my values line up with those of anarchy, easily and often confused with the vales of tyrants. As a matter of fact I believe "situational leadership" would better describe what an- archon would mean. And to be frank, there appears to be more debate than deliberation amongst the people associated with the assemblies. I wish I can state otherwise. Individual cases being solved frees up an individuals time to properly invest in the greater good does it not? Is that not what your doing individually recorded each members return to the soil?

    1. @Unknown I was eager to correct my status and become active. Began in 2020 with emails to Assembly man, Gary on this state. In a subsequent phone conversation (January 31, 2021) he told me no recording secretary in this state, unable to refer me to any others, told me to find one on my own. Contacted Status Select (February 1, 2021), was informed as federal recording secretary that they would be recording for my state and had been asked to do so by the Assembly man, Gary. Great! I'll be able to get this done after all. I chose the deluxe welcome home package, promptly paid for the services to prepare my documents, notarize them, and record them with the assurance it would be about 7-10 days to complete. This was on February 6, 2021. Though there were delays due to computer malfunctions and issues of scheduling, I was eager to forge ahead and continually rescheduled my work and appointments around these delays as this documentation is the foundation for future endeavors, and as a farmer, the busy season lasts through December.

      The earliest date available to witness my signature was Monday, March 15, 2021. My time is highly valuable, tightly scheduled as any other person. After rescheduling my meetings and work three times to accommodate witnessing my signature (losing opportunities for other advancements and also costing me sums of federal reserve notes), the day had arrived, it would take 20 minutes. The rest of the day after the scheduled meeting and the rest of the week were loaded with the reschedules of appointments that were continually pushed out to accommodate the delays of Status Select. Upon opening my computer to setup for the zoom meeting, there was an email from Status Select that the Assembly man had instructed them to "hold off" until he spoke to me. He provided no phone number or reason for this. He did not respond to emails to him as the time for the meeting continued ticking away. Asked Status Select what it was about, didn't know. Asked for his phone, wouldn't give to me. The meeting time passed as I waited for Gary or Status Select to proceed with my signing of documents. I went to the next appointment scheduled after the signing.

      Later, Gary left a voice message on my phone stating he wanted to know where I was in my process and that he was not trying to interfere with me getting "papered up" yet he didn't recall recommending me to Status Select.

      For whatever reason, Status Select has not witnessed my signature or finished preparing the documents in the deluxe welcome home package. Gary has not instructed them to proceed (did he have any authority to instruct them to halt?). It is a mystery why Gary has inserted himself in my process and instructed the company hired to halt.

      Has anyone else in Connecticut had trouble like this?

    2. By not correcting your status you are hamstrung. The fundamentals of law dictate our procedures, every one of them, as best we know how, at least to this point. We continue to gain new insight critical to unwinding the ploy committed against us. The answers are available 'within' the process. No process equals no assembly participation.

      Follow the established route that all the rest of us have. Anna's not your 'go to' for answers. Contact your local coordinator and go from there, or go nowhere.

      Your suggestion that what you need to proceed must come from Anna is absurd. As important as we all are to her and our success, our movement demands that we each self govern or we stay stuck in what appears to be your present confused state of mind.

      You gotta unload some fear!

  5. In words of flamboyant activist Commander in navy 50 years of failure tell us we have to be unapologetic and bravely go we’re no man has gin before mixing metaphors.
    The NWO’’s plan is destruction by any means the hot one is the border .
    Statically the destruction is directly proportional to the incoming replacement culture. many a country had been erased by other invaders.
    Romans, Muslims almost erased all Europe for only a brave few leaders like Charles Martell who defeated the Muslims in Spain 1492 .same year Christopher Columbus sailed .
    Mean while like Ww2 when America fight Another bankers war the Attorneys in Chicago unified all thair bills of Attainers called UCC uniform commercial code and patent it .
    Statutes ate for government to tell its employees how to act .
    But make no mistake attorneys love to scare people with long code infringement jail terms and statutes.
    Upsetting may rice bowls.
    Drama is destined.

  6. Kirks rhetoric he used in Idaho state house challenges legislators were s your authority?
    Confronts the State police try and use that hat rack for something more than a hat rack!
    The elite are watching and that unique jargon ended up on floor of congress a congress man lecturing the congress on how law works .
    We’re all so in the dark even Michigan Assembly can’t grasp the different instrumentality ‘s used to creat the mercenary war to mothball our control apparatus the United States .under the Articles of Confederation 1781.

  7. In the book” emerging fror illusion “ Johannson tell two congress were in simultaneous operation one in NYC were Washington was coronated Also were Hamrltonn was the number 2 lawyer on wall street,
    That was the Territorial congress that had representatives( re present. )
    The continental congress was in Philadelphia and they had deputies from states .
    Everything changed after Jefferson because Jefferson was so influential the dare not try say burn the archives in Philadelphia during his term.
    He did fight Hamelton in debate as he had a high weak voice but did pick up his pen and told Hamelton the General Warefare clause isn’t (convent) and necessary .
    Can’t go doing what he did under Adams and promise to run a pipe line into NYC and instead start a bank kume and low a (Rothschild front).
    More proof he was an Rothschild agent .

  8. In a confederate system everyone has thair own sovereignty.
    A federation is a central government perfect foe NWO types CCP.
    That style a confederacy is what the succeeded southern state implement also with a clear ability to succeed anytime.
    The Torres wore red in solidarity with red coats today they ware Red converse sneakers and will fight to protect the nanny state .

  9. The water_sign can do a lot of magics, murdered acts, hidden crimes, Not detectable by common people, or by 2D astrology users, in market today. Thats why people turned to the 7% top Tarot readers, to see the Thieves agenda... Not all water signs or air signs are evil. Your geolocation of birth matters.

    Theives don't like it, if you track them while they track you.. They like to Cut off, interrupt, slow down, your network while stealing your informations. To listen and invade y/our privacy breaking a dozen set of laws. Theives coordinated with their so_called "our ISP" to turn off our paid network, and replaced by their hidden 😈SECRET ISP, If you track their hidden bad motif too accurately, they hated. They curse the readers, or paid certain good readers not to read for certain sign.

    Thieves know how to fake up your nearby ipaddress, they've still made so many errors, and law violations, for nearly 5 months now. For us, there is no law violation to be open_minded or to listening to any topics. Who are committing the lies and Great Law violations here? The same bastards of course, stealing & invading non stopping, and yet, they wanted to offer us a new beginning of their same toxic FRAUD forever, even after their 170 year GREAT crimes. πŸ˜†πŸ˜―

    Our GOD is an awesome GOD.... Who understands us. πŸ˜‡πŸ˜‡ that's my choice.

  10. I wish that all would refrain from using the word person or children. Man or woman
    men or women and offspring would be preferred.

  11. Are you a member of an assembly? If you are, you know, or should know, those bits and pieces make up the whole. The more we put the jigsaw puzzle together the more effective we will become. Of course we need to understand jurisdictions thoroughly if we are to get the big picture, becoming well informed enough to know how to enforce the constitutions.
    It is a maxim of law that "As a matter is bound, it must be unbound. The necessary ingredients for us to rise to our responsibilities take time to learn, comprehend and apply. You seem to suggest that an intentional desire by the assemblies exists to keep the people focused on less important tasks. You're an idiot if you think that. With your level of cynicism it is certain little support can come from your corner as evidenced by your comments.
