Dealing With the Influx -- A Message to All State Coordinators

 By Anna Von Reitz

Now that we are all solid on the fact that the Federation is American and in no way synonymous with the foreign corporations that have been running the Federal Government --- and you are all instructed to fully explain that to the Assemblies-at-Large as many times as necessary to get it through the thicker pates among us --- I must again address another fundamental misunderstanding that we are encountering. 

Many Assemblies have been functioning for over three years now and many have developed their own small leadership cadre that is comfortable working with each other. There is a tendency for such leadership cadres to "lock up" and try to keep newcomers out.  That is a terrible mistake. 

Our Assemblies are not clubs.  They are public governmental bodies.  They can't be based on keeping people out.  They have to be based on including as many people as possible.   So if you are practicing any kind of "black balling" or inappropriate "vetting" to make sure that only people you approve of and only people that you get along with and agree with are included --- you are doing this dead wrong. 

There is a fine line to be observed between disruption and disagreement, between mere opinion and fact.  It's the job of the Assembly leadership to discern that line and walk it.  

Disruption is what we think of when someone comes to a meeting drunk and angry and starts bawling about whatever their pet peeve or problem is.  It's not when someone raises their hand and disagrees with prevailing sentiment. 

We owe it to ourselves to engage in discussion and debate and to embrace our own tradition, which protects the right of free speech because we understand that when we muzzle others, and censor them, we also open up the possibility that the same thing will be done to us. 

After all the years of Nanny State manipulation that we have all endured it's natural for people to lash out at any "government" and it's natural also, when they are two-blocked from doing whatever they please by laws and safety considerations and even plain old respect for others, they run to the nearest authority figure and tattle-tale like little children. 

The potential for this to get completely out of hand is present and staring you all in the face, and the answer to it is, too.  We all have to go back to Kindergarten and learn how to be polite and civil toward each other again, and beyond that, it is essential that all Assemblies establish a simple orientation and "Welcome Package" and counseling protocol for new members. 

I have been harping on this for many months, but it's apparent that at least some Assemblies are not following through and some Assemblies are not making the appropriate effort to do outreach.  

New members have to be told explicitly what the mission and function of the Assembly is.  We are here to restore the American Government according to the original template.  We aren't here --- at least not at this time --- to create anything new.  We are here to restore and reconstruct.  

We will worry about correcting and changing once we have things running as they should, so this is not a venue for angry people bent on insurrection, nor is it a venue for people who want to throw in the towel and start over with something completely different --- anarchists, communists, globalists, fascists ---will not be a happy fit.  People need to be told this upfront. 

They also need to be told that this is a very different kind of government than anything they are used to.  They are used to being treated like sheep, being manipulated by lies and propaganda, rewarded for compliance and complicity, and punished for failure to go along. 

Now they have to think.  Now they have to take responsibility.  Now they are embarked on doing their Public Duty.  They are no longer being treated like children, so they must act as adults and we cannot continue to employ the methods of the "Other" government.  

When we walk through the Assembly door, there's nobody to blame but ourselves.  There are no entitlements in the American Government, except the preservation of our mutual Natural and Unalienable Rights and our claims to our own public and private property assets.  

Although we are working to recoup and return money and other assets that have been stolen from the people of this country, we are not about welfare or handouts.  The administration of the Sign In America Program is to remunerate and relieve people from payments that they are not actually responsible for and to claim exemptions and credit exchange rights that they are owed. 

The pre-paid credit that we will be making available is credit that is literally already owed to people.  It's not welfare and it isn't coming from the government -- it's coming from payments that their ancestors and they, themselves, have made as a result of coercion and fraud against them.  Mortgages they didn't owe, taxes they didn't owe, etc., need to be returned to them in the same way that their credit was extracted --- in an orderly, month by month, year by year manner that won't cause hyperinflation. 

It will take time to transition from the current crooked system to an honest system and we have to thread our way through this with common sense and goodwill.  It can't be done any other way. 

Along with this information, each Newcomer needs a sit-down interview, not with a vetting committee --- which is only appropriate when people seek public offices and need a background review --- but with a counselor who will answer their questions and hold their hand and discuss their options with them.  

Many people who join our assemblies finish the paperwork and then feel left in the lurch.  Now what?  

You have to help define the next steps for them, and in order for that to happen, you have to spend a little time getting to know them and discussing the various political status options there are, and whether or not they should be participating in the State Assembly or in a District Assembly.  

Not everyone belongs in our State Assembly, even though they may reclaim their status as an American State National.  For example, someone who works for the military and who holds both Texan Nationality as an Americans State National  and U.S. Citizenship as a member of the military, is probably going to feel more comfortable and do more good by joining the District Assembly --- at least in the short run.  

Eventually, government employees retire and then a great many will want to "return home" to civilian status --- and though it will be an adjustment for them, they need to be brought into the Assembly, educated and retrained to exist in a new realm that will be harder on average for them to adjust to. 

By getting to know the other people in your Assembly, knowing their family, knowing their problems and background, you can more effectively help them find their place at the table and more effectively deploy their insights, skills, and talents.  

Even though it may seem impossible right now, look around and see who you can ask to set up your own Assembly "Help Desk" and who might be a good Orientation Counselor. 

If you get people into: (1) the right Assembly for them, and (2) engaged in some aspect of the work to be done that suits them, the chances are that everyone will be better able to build the happy community relationships that we need to build as Americans and as Assembly Members.

Straight Talk to David Straight

 
By Anna Von Reitz

This is part of what you are not grasping, so let me ask you --- is it possible to be "at home" and "away from home" at the same time?  

Can you be on a ship at sea and ploughing a field back home at the same time?  

No, you cannot --- and it is the same way with the different apples and oranges we are discussing. 

You can be born in California and declare that you are a Californian by birthright and you can be recognized as an American State National ---- that is your nationality

But when you adopt a foreign political status, we are no longer talking about nationality.  We are talking about citizenship or non-citizenship.  

Citizenship is a vocation --- a job in which you serve the government.   

Just as you can choose to be a bartender or not, Americans have the right to choose whether they are "citizens" or not.  

They also have the right to choose whatever citizenship status they adopt, if they adopt any at all. 

This is not true worldwide.   

Many countries, including England, maintain that citizenship accrues to you at birth and you have no choice but to serve the government all your days. 

As an American you can: (1) choose not to be a citizen and just live your life as a Free Man;  (2) adopt State Citizenship and serve your State of the Union; (3) adopt U.S. Citizenship and "serve abroad" in the international jurisdiction of the sea as a British resident;  (4) adopt Municipal citizenship of the United States and "serve abroad" in the jurisdiction of the air as a resident of the District of Columbia; (5) potentially, once the American Federal Republic is restored, you could adopt United States Citizenship (different than U.S. Citizenship) --- there is a lengthy process to do this described in the old Naturalization Acts --- and "serve abroad" as a Resident of the Municipality of Washington, DC.  

So there are five (5) possibilities: 

1. American Free Man, Non-citizen (no government job obligations at all) 
2. American State Citizen (State of the Union job)
3. U.S. Citizen (foreign British Territorial Admiralty job)
4. Municipal citizen of the United States (foreign District Maritime citizen job) 
5. United States Citizen (American foreign service job requiring Municipal residency)

Notice that --- U.S. Citizen, Municipal citizen of the United States, and United States Citizen are all foreign citizenships from the perspective of the American Free Man and the American State Citizens.  

That is, U.S. Citizen, Municipal citizen of the United States, and United States Citizen all work for foreign governments and operate in foreign jurisdictions of law. 

Many Americans find this hard to comprehend. 

They think of that thing in Washington, DC, as "their" government because it is supposed to do work for them under contracts called "constitutions", and because many District Employees were born in this country, they additionally believe that these governments are American --- but they are not. 

The only quasi-American Government that is supposed to be in Washington, DC, is the American Foreign Service which we intended to administer through the original Federal Republic --- but that hasn't been possible since 1860, so the work got reshuffled and the Pope's Municipal Government simply usurped those roles intended for United States Citizens. 

Thus, our country has been commandeered by foreign powers since 1860, and all the while, Americans have thought that everything was hunky-dory. 

When Americans join the military services they unknowingly adopt the U.S. Citizenship political status, and unless they inform their Branch Commander otherwise once they are discharged from the military, they are presumed to voluntarily retain that status forevermore. 

U.S. Citizenship is a British Territorial job and as a condition of your continued volunteer job you are considered a Subject of the British Monarch, a Territorial Foreign Situs Trust, collateral (together with all your property assets) for the debts of the United States of America, Incorporated, and an Indentured Servant for the duration of your service. 

You also lose all Constitutional Guarantees owed to Americans, can not actually own land in this country (only a British Trust "title" to land, which the Queen holds "for" you), and as a tenant on (what used to be) your own land, you have to pay property taxes, easement assessments, etc., etc., etc.  You also become subject to the Queen's law in your country. 

So, here you are, going around, teaching everyone that it's okay to be a U.S. Citizen --- and it is, but..... there are downsides.  More recently, you have even been suggesting by reference to 8 USC 12 that it's even possible for them to be "United States Citizens", apparently because the British Territorials are preparing to front a British Territorial version of our Federal Republic and confuse everyone some more--- though we won't allow that.   

The problem, David, is that you aren't telling people what U.S. Citizenship actually means and what they give up in the course of adopting U.S. Citizenship.  And as far as all this talk about a "new" Federal Republic, you aren't telling people that this could only be a British-affiliated entity calling itself "a" Federal Republic --- if it comes to pass, it won't be American. 

The American Government is run by Americans adopting their own citizenship --- which is American State Citizenship.  And it's only the American State Citizens who actually have the authority to reconstruct both the Confederation of States and the American Federal Republic.  

In the meantime, our venerable Federation of States is the only American Government operating in international and global jurisdiction, just as it did from 1776-1781.  

If you and all the other U.S. Citizen volunteers really want to do something to help America and your fellow-Americans, and actually want to help restore the American Government and do the right thing, then the first thing you need to do is come home.  Resign your job as a foreign citizen working in a foreign jurisdiction of the law, and if you want to serve, serve your own State Government instead.
