Our Court System

 By Anna Von Reitz

We say, "Our Court System", in the sense of distinguishing it from their court system(s).  

We, Americans, have our own court system which is separate from the courts of "strictly limited jurisdiction" allowed to our Federal Subcontractors. 

The Municipal Corporations housed in the District of Columbia have their own "administrative courts" -- that is, corporate tribunals that enforce the policies and codes of these corporations. 

These are in-house courts that are limited to addressing corporation officials, corporation employees, agency subcontractors, and departments within their corporations. 

It's somewhat confusing because there are two Municipal Corporations in the District of Columbia and they each have different policies and codes, one set for the Federal Civil Service and its franchises serving under the Municipal Code of Washington, DC, and one set for the Military Services under Federal Code. 

None of these codes, nor any State-of-State franchise statutes, are meant to "generally apply" to 
the General Public. 

So what do we mean by "generally apply"?  

We mean that only about 8% of all Federal Code applies to Americans, and only when those Americans are engaged in federally regulated activities or on federal property. 

Obviously, the administrative tribunals of a foreign corporation have little or no business speaking to Americans, but they do so all the time.  Their excuse for "assuming jurisdiction" over us is that our own courts have been vacated or nearly vacated for several decades.  

It's up to us to change that and to restore our court system, but before we can do that, we have to have a firm understanding of our own law and our own courts--- and that's difficult to come by after decades of our courts standing vacant and/or largely dormant. 

Even our system of Public Law, referring to ourselves as the "Public", has been obscured. Our case law has been reorganized and buried in archives. 

The first thing we have to notice about our courts is that they are courts of general jurisdiction.  They are not limited as to what issues they may address and are competent to judge both the law and the facts involved in each case.  Our juries have the right of jury nullification and can overturn any law that is unjust, unreasonable, or void for vagueness. 

The second thing we note is that our courts operate within specific limited venues when exercising their general jurisdiction.  For example, our State Courts only have jurisdiction within the physical borders of each State. Our county courts only have jurisdiction within the border of each county.  

The third thing we have to know is that our courts operate under American Common Law--- not any of the myriad other forms of "common law"---and then, we have to learn our law and set up our courts. 

Is that all?  

We are helped in this mammoth undertaking by having copies of: 

Bouvier's Common Law Dictionary, the only such dictionary approved by our American Congress:

American Jurisprudence 2D - a multi-volume law encyclopedia series with over 400 topic sections covering all forms and jurisdictions of law presently in use. 

This resource allows us to intelligently explore topics of vital interest to us, but requires us to recognize the difference between international, national, and local law, land law and sea law, and so on. 

In the event that our courts are called upon to consider issues in Maritime or Admiralty venues, we have the multi-volume compendium:

Benedict on Admiralty by Erastus Cornelius Benedict

To assist us in understanding the history, depth, beauty, power and tradition of Common Law in general, we have: 

Excellence of the Common Law by Brent Winters
and all his excellent workshops and seminars, as well as other publications.  

Last but not least, we have a magnificently succinct instruction booklet to guide us in setting up and operating a general jurisdiction Common Law Court:

Establishing the Reign of Natural Liberty: a Common Law Training Manual by Kevin Annett: 

Or, better still, order your copies directly from the ITCCS Office and give them the benefit of the wholesale price: itccsoffice@

This little volume gives you both the basic ideas and history of Common Law as well as a straightforward instruction book telling you how to create and maintain a lawful Common Law Court in international jurisdiction --- everything we need to know to set up our State Courts. 

Thank you, Kevin Annett. 

It's a humbling place to be, as we lift ourselves up out of the mire of a purposefully engineered ignorance, and restore our rightful place among the nations, by restoring our American Common Law Courts of General Jurisdiction, and begin the process of correction and restitution.
