Americans ----Stop Citing Federal Code

 By Anna Von Reitz

The only people who (generally-speaking) have to obey and pay attention to Federal Code are Federal Employees.  

That should be pretty obvious, but where people get confused is that in a small percentage of circumstances, Federal Code DOES apply to people who are otherwise not obligated. 

This is because about 8% of all Federal Code ever published (specifically those things that are published in the Congressional Record as opposed to the Federal Register) concern the special circumstances wherein an otherwise average American becomes subject to Federal Code. 

We become subject to Federal Code when we voluntarily enter Federal buildings and other enclaves.  Every time you enter a Post Office, for example, you are on their turf and are expected to honor their law. 

Same way when we enter army bases and other government facilities.  It's their little bubble and while in their bubble, we have to obey their rules. 

The same applies when you engage -- voluntarily --- always note that it has to be voluntary on your part -- in the interstate manufacture, transportation, or sale of "federally regulated substances" which are limited in our case to: alcohol, tobacco, and firearms. 

Note that intrastate (activities occurring totally within your State of the Union) manufacture, transportation or sale of alcohol, tobacco and firearms in-state is  NOT subject to any federal regulation. 

The State of State organizations try to horn in and pretend that they are acting as custodians of the State interest and sneak in compliance with whatever their parent corporations are selling, like restrictions on marijuana and hemp products, for example --- but they actually have no contract to act as custodians and now that our State Assemblies are in Session, the State Assemblies get to speak to the activities of the State of State organizations purportedly undertaken on our behalf. 

These State of State organizations are corporate franchises of the Federal parent corporation, so if the parent has no regulatory authority, neither do the franchises. 

Read this: unless you are voluntarily participating in a federally regulated activity or voluntarily entering federal premises, and engaging in activities that the federal government is authorized to regulate, Federal Code does not apply to you, Joe Average American. 

The only reason an average American would have to cite Federal Code would be if: (1) they are voluntarily engaging in a federally regulated activity or entered upon federal turf and are asking questions about it, or (2) they are reminding their Public Employees of the limitations of their roles, in which case, they need to plainly state their intention and reason for citing Federal Code. 

Inappropriate references to Federal Code have been a bane for the patriot community for many years, and have led to many people being subjected to false arrest, fines, and jail time, because when you cite Federal Code it creates a reasonable presumption that you are standing under Federal Code --- unless you take pains to explicitly say, "You are a public employee so I am reminding you of the Federal Code." 

However, remember that only U.S. Citizens are bound to Federal Code in general. 

Municipal United States employees are only bound to Title 50, so you can get into trouble citing any other portions of Federal Code to them.  

And how many of you can tell the difference between a U.S. Citizen and a Municipal citizen? 

Joe Average American is better off not talking about Federal Code at all, unless of course he does so in the form of pointed questions about Federal Code. 

Such as: 

How does the law you are relying on define a "Motor Vehicle" and, come to that, how do you presume that my car is a motor vehicle? 

(Their answer: you registered it. Your answer: I was forced to register under color of law, wasn't I?  And we all know that, don't we?)

You can get away with anything in these courts and they cannot touch you so long as you phrase it as a question.  

Are you arresting me, and if so, under what authority? 

Why am I not being provided with an attorney? 

Where is the emergency, Officer?  (They aren't supposed to stop you in the absence of an emergency.) 

Where is the contract obligating me to obey you or your legislature? (State of State Constitutions were not ratified by you or your State, so....) 

What guarantees will you give me if I comply? 

What equitable consideration have I received in exchange for my assets? 

Is a home mortgage a public debt? 

Once a home mortgage is paid off, who owns the home? 

What is my status if I pay off a mortgage? (All the time you are paying a mortgage you are considered a tenant in your own home, and once you pay it off, you are considered a Lease-holder to a future Lease Purchase Agreement which is never forthcoming.) 

Why would I or anyone else enter into a mortgage if the nature and terms of the mortgage were fully disclosed? 

If my car is a commercial vehicle, why isn't the purchase price and all interest and other costs associated with it 100% tax deductible? 

(They can't have it both ways. It's either a "Motor Vehicle" engaged in commerce and all costs are deductible as business expenses, or it's a private car.)

If my house mortgage represents a debt that the State Trust owes on the property and I am assuming their debt, why am I not told this?

The Truth in Lending Act requires full disclosure, so why is it that neither the bank nor the servicing agent ever mentioned the fact that the house I was buying was considered a State Trust property? 

Even after I pay the mortgage debt of the State Trust off, will I own my own home, or will it still be State Trust property? 

You get the drift.  

Asking pointed questions is the safe way to approach all matters associated with public officials and public officers of all kinds-- prosecutors, judges, political appointees, etc.

Citing Federal Code creates unnecessary risk. 

So stop citing Federal Code.

The Burning House

 By Anna Von Reitz

Now many of you have heard all the many accusations lodged by members of the TROH brand against me, personally.  

I have already forewarned you how these people operate in terms of accusing their opponents of the things they do themselves. 

And now I am going to take it to an even more fundamental level of understanding. 

Imagine that you have been at work until late come home in the evening to find your home enveloped by flames and a crew of local firemen and neighbors milling about in the front yard.  

There is one man in particular, with an ash-stained face and other obvious signs that he has been fighting the fire, standing beside your dog on a leash, and a large mound of your most precious possessions.  

Your family Bible, your birth certificates and other records, your family photos, your jewelry, your bank records, your business computer and personal computer, everything that is most precious and useful to you, plus your goldfish and the plants have all been carried out of the burning house and stacked in the front yard safe and sound and your beloved dog is very happy to see you, alive and well.  

But your house is a goner. 

This man who is nonchalantly standing beside this pile of your possessions giving instructions to the rest of the neighbors in the mop up crew and casually guarding all your stuff, turns to you with great sympathy and nods and explains how he was home from work and was the first one to spot the fire and call in the fire department and get the other neighbors to help battle the blaze.  

He explains that he got in through the garage and got the dog out and then got your office and bedroom cleared out, and together with other neighbors, brought it all out of the house far enough from the blaze to save it.  Then he hot-wired the ignition of your second car and drove it over to the neighbor's. He apologizes that you will probably need a new ignition.  

Then he tells you that another neighbor is on the way with a U-Haul van they rented and paid for, for you to store your stuff securely and they will all help move it into the van for the night and give that van to you for transportation to the hotel space they've rented for you.  They've already paid for the hotel and the van for the next two weeks.  And it is a dog friendly hotel so Rover can just stay with you. 

Now, you have suffered a major shock and loss. 

You are staring at your house in ruins, smoke still billowing from the ashes.  A fireman is approaching with a clipboard in hand. You are confused and scared and beginning to cope with what all this information means. 

And you have choices about interpreting all this. 

You can: 

(A) Thank the neighbor who called the fire department and while waiting for them broke into your house and organized all the other neighbors to save your dog and all your really important stuff, including your second car. And you can thank all of them for doing their best to help and renting a van and getting you a hotel to stay in.  


(B) You can think -- who is this guy with all my stuff piled up in the front yard?  He must be the arsonist who is responsible for my house burning up!  Yes, he's a thief and I just ruined his plan by showing up at this moment.  He rented that U-Haul so he and his buddies could steal it. 

You see?  You've always got a choice to make, concerning what is real and what you believe about any given person and any circumstance. You can believe in what is good and right (A) or you can believe in what is diabolical and evil (B). 

And it is entirely your choice. 

At that moment, the neighbor driving the U-Haul van shows up, jumps out, sympathy all over his face.  He walks up to you and hands you the key and says, "Well, alright then, fellas.... let's get everything loaded up. Looks like it might rain on top of everything else." 

Now, it's pretty obvious that nobody is going to load up your stuff and bonk you over the head and drive off with the entire town's fire department there, so you gingerly take the keys offered and begin moving your stuff into the van.  

It takes a little while to start coming out of your shock, but the need to get everything moved gets you moving, too.  Blood starts flowing again. Other neighbors start helping. As you drive away you see your second car parked in the neighbor's driveway. 

It occurs to you that if he knew how to hot-wire your ignition to save it, he also knew how to hot-wire it to steal it.  You glance at your hungry dog sitting in the passenger seat beside you, and somehow, you just "know" that when you get to the hotel, the room will be rented just as these good men told you. 

You finally know what to believe because of all the little nuances of things, the words, the information, the way the keys to the U-Haul were handed to you, the look on the man's face, the fact that your dog liked him, just a whole pile up of things that logically fit together.  

And you notice that, in spite of this great disaster, everything that really mattered was saved, and that you are now back in control of things. 

In the morning, you wake up and begin sorting through and organizing and you're on your way to a new and different life.  You are still in shock from the loss of your home, but also in shock from realizing all that your neighbors just did for you.  

They could have stolen all your valuables, but they didn't.  And it wasn't just because you showed up at an inopportune moment.  It was because they acted on your behalf with goodwill and honesty.  They did this without really knowing you from Adam and risked life and limb going back and forth from the smoke-filled house to do it. 

Of course, there is the alternative scenario that the "Fearless Floyds" of the world want you to believe and in that scenario, you don't go to the hotel prepared for you, because you are afraid that its a set-up, and that there's a gang of robbers waiting for you.  So you drive up the highway and park at a secluded spot and sleep in the van for the night. 

In the morning you wake up all mean-spirited and cranky and overwhelmed by your losses, focused only on your losses -- not all the stuff that was saved and which is now secured in the back of the van --- and you are angry about the whole circumstance, wondering who these evil people are who hauled all your stuff out of the house?  

Why you?  Why was your house targeted by these arsonists?  What are you going to do about it?  And so on.  

It's the same with the present circumstance in our world. 

You can use your common sense and intuition, or you can use an evil imagination tainted by years of Hollywood, bad experiences, suspicion, and anger. 

Notice that it's your own fault that you spent the night cramped up in the cab of a U-Haul that you didn't pay for and that it's your neighbors on the hook for it if you destroy the van or steal it.  

Uh-duh. Turns out that they've risked themselves to help you, and they could have just stood on the sidewalk and watched your house burn. 

This is all about your choices and what you choose to believe in and how well you can reason your way through things and whether or not you have intuition enough to feel your way through, even if the facts are all jumbled and conflicted in your mind. 

It's also about time and how long and how many facts have to accrue before you know for sure what to believe and not to believe.  

So for all who are unsure and all those running around like Henny-Penny shouting, "The sky is falling!  The sky is falling!  And it's all because of Anna that it is!" --- remember that your own beliefs dictate your experience. 

If you choose to stay in the van all night and suck your thumb, that's your choice. 

If you choose to wake up after a good night's sleep and face the day with courage and a little optimism and restored faith, that's your choice, too. 

Your house is still burned and your really important stuff is still saved, either way.
