International Public Notice: Venom, Venom, Everywhere

 By Anna Von Reitz

We have a reptile brain and nerve centers. 

Some of us have fish brains, some have turtle brains, some have snake brains, some have lizard brains, and some of us, a few, have amphibian brains derived from an ancient ancestor of the Axolotl. 

Reptile components run all the complex machinery of the autonomic system that runs continuously in the background of our biology, faithfully prompting our heart to beat, our lungs to breathe, our cells to inhale food and exhale debris, our intestines to digest, our glands to secrete. 

This is a huge debt.  It is not only the gift of life, it is also the necessary "given" needed to support individual consciousness, which glides along on top of this complex interactive biological masterpiece. 

The fact that we have physical bodies and that they work as well as they do, is owed to reptiles. 

This is reflected in the Ancient Hindu Culture by the Nagas, serpent-headed teacher-shamans, who founded the world and imparted all the practical skills needed to run it.  

Closer to home, it's reflected by the tiny scales that make up our skin, clearly visible under high magnification. 

Now, consider, what portion of the ecosystem worldwide has been most damaged and what part of the Animal Kingdom has suffered the most extinction? 

The reptiles and amphibians all across the board have suffered the most, along with the birds, their closest relatives. 

It makes sense that we are being attacked using snake venom and other venoms derived from reptiles; we genocided them, when we owe our own biology to them, so now, they are returning the favor. 

It's no mistake that, now that we look, we find venom in vaccines and baby food, cosmetics and cure-alls. 

The initial surveys indicate that every food group and substance imaginable has been polluted with venom and now, even our own cell machinery has been hijacked to produce nerve-destroying venom. 

They gave us our bodies and we responded by destroying theirs; can they not retaliate? 

Isn't all of Nature offended by this injustice? 

Isn't all of Nature thinking --- as it does --- that the Earth was healthier and happier before the advent of mankind?  Wasn't truth honored more?  Wasn't there more peace without these self-important hominids? 

Even now, we are so self-absorbed and egocentric that we imagine we are causing global warming. And the most self-absorbed and egocentric people among us are cynically encouraging this delusion as an excuse to wring more taxes out of us. 

There is a certain poetic and karmic justice in it all, when you cast the jewels across the night sky and think about it. 

We are being killed by venom contributed by reptiles that have been exterminated and driven to extinction by us.  Even the once-common frogs and toads are no longer seen.  Forget the Garter Snakes that used to dart around the flower beds. Forget the turtles. 

While I have been teaching and preaching and hoping that people will see that they are all part of the Family of Man, there is an even Greater Lesson to be learned---- and that is, that we are part of All That Is. 

As we have thoughtlessly and recklessly decimated the source of our own life, the entire reptile kingdom, we have just as thoughtlessly and recklessly destroyed each other and ruined the Earth. 

Look at what is going on in Gaza right now. The endlessly corrupt and greedy commercial corporations posing as governments discovered oil just offshore from the Gaza Strip.  

Even as the last remnants of the Palestinian people who lived in Gaza are being scraped up off the pavement, the "Western Alliance", the purported Good Guys, are colluding with Bibi Netanyahu to build a brand-new state-of-the-art port facility in Gaza, to expedite the drilling, refining, and shipping capacity to take advantage of the new oil basin. 

I told you all this months ago, but as the port-building activities are now clearly visible via Google Earth and elsewhere, it's patently obvious what went on. 

The offshore oil basin was discovered by the oil companies. The oil companies told the corporations acting "as" governments. They all had visions of dollar signs and regional market monopolies dancing like sugar plums in their heads. 

There was just one problem: all those pesky Palestinians living in Gaza.  

They would have to go, in order for Israel to have unbridled hegemony, access, and control --- not to mention---ownership, of the new oil resources. 

So they came in, set up a deliberate False Flag "incursion" in Gaza, just as they have done the same thing in other places, and so, monotonously, again, they contrived to make the victims look like the Perpetrators.   

The British MI6 paid Hamas to do the Dirty Work, kill 1,500 people, and give the Israelis the excuse to come in and kill over 50,000 Palestinians.  Just "clean them out" and steal the oil that was theirs, before they even knew they had a stake in it. 

That's what all the young people protesting on the college campuses know, and what you are not being told by any organ of the Mainstream Media. 

We should all be spitting in the faces of all these politicians everywhere, who have been playing us  for fools and treating us like livestock.   

We should be tearing out our hair and sitting in sackcloth, asking God to defend us from these Monsters in Suits and this Plague of Legal Fictions. 

It's Mother's Day.  We are thinking of all the Palestinian women in Gaza who had such simple dreams for themselves and their children.  

We are thinking of the disgusting politicians and corporate Terrorists and the bankers who "invested" in this "acquisition" in Gaza.  

They always clean up and sanitize their language, as if calling it an "acquisition" instead of a "genocide" changes what it is. 

There is something cold in our hearts and hands today, something that, very calmly, very decidedly, wishes that all these Corporations were dead, that all these politicians were gone, and that the frogs were back again. 

Call nothing "good" except that you judge it by its fruits; the fruits of the world as we have known it, are destruction, alienation, contempt, hardness of heart, self-love, greed, injustice and violence. 

All this, and ecological disaster, has been brought to us by delusional madmen and a rigged system of falsified "government" -- church government, legislative government, and blah, blah, blah -- have all failed us.  

All of us.  Not just the Palestinians. 

The bought and paid-for Regulatory Agencies-- DOJ, SEC, FBI, EPA, NHS, CDC, FDA-- and their European and Commonwealth counterparts all get a big red "F".  They are a waste of time, money, and space, and even worse, they are a detriment and endangerment to the public being maintained at public expense. 

These horrible crimes have been committed against us by vaporous Legal Fictions, Corporations, and the men running them.  

That's why these offending Corporations must be destroyed and the CEO's responsible for their criminality must be brought to justice. 

Nice suits or not. 

It's Mother's Day, and you are being called upon to give birth to a brand new world.

Our View

 By Anna Von Reitz

Our view of the Militia is informed by the same sources presented in the repost of the article from The Tenth Amendment Center that was sent out yesterday.  

We obviously consider homosexuality a private matter that should never become an object of concern in public administration; lamentably, the practice of sodomy in the military has increased to the point that it has not only adversely impacted the military, but has spread out into the general population so as to promote a political movement. 

We felt it was important to warn the public that this "sudden" LGBTQ Movement is not the product of Liberalism, but is rather being promoted by Roman/Nazi elements that have become entrenched in the military. These are not men that we would consider to be "liberal" in any sense but their sexual proclivities. Otherwise, they are often doctrinaire conservatives, control junkies, and misogynists. 

This has become a real problem for the military and for our civilian culture as well, but we can hardly hope to address it, if we ignorantly assume that the LGBTQ effort is coming from liberal civilian sources, when in fact, it's leaking out of conservative military circles, instead. 

That is the "alert" that I am spreading here, so that people are not blind-sided and amazed when all of a sudden they realize that this "tradition" has been encapsulated and carried forward over the course of more than 2,000 years and is making a bid to come into fruition again.  

As I noted in other correspondence, it goes back all the way to Babylon, and is well-represented in Greek Epic Poetry and by Lesser Greek Poets -- Achilles and Alexander the Great were both homosexuals; there is little doubt that the Spartan heroes celebrated as "the 300" who held back the Persians at Thermopylae were bisexuals or dedicated homosexuals indoctrinated into military sodomy at an early age, the feared Black Eagle Legion of Rome was entirely staffed by homosexuals; and the Nazis, patterning themselves after Rome, openly practiced sodomy in the ranks--- and only used it as a hypocritical excuse to get rid of political rivals and for associated blackmail in other venues when it suited them. 

The military needs to be put on Notice that despite this long association of homosexuality and sodomite submission associated with the military tradition, this is an issue that has gotten out of hand and been inappropriately justified and politicized, while the American Public needs to be aware that the LGBTQ "Agenda" is largely coming from an unexpected place: the military.  

The mindless and misplaced belief that our planet is overpopulated when it once supported 500 billion people --- roughly 60 times the present population--- has been used to promote a cynical and hateful agenda to murder billions of innocent people rather than give up petty investments in antiquated infrastructure, energy sources that cause pollution, and Nineteenth Century monopolies that should have never existed in the first place.  

The men charged with carrying out this murder and genocide of the species agenda have been following along in the deluded expectation that they were fighting a political enemy -- "the Americans" or "the Communists" -- when in fact that have been committing suicide and setting up their own demise and the demise of their families and kith and kind.  

The Higher Ups in this Lemming-like insanity have been deluded by beliefs in "Higher Dimensions" and fairytale nonsense, while ignoring the wisdom of more than 13.8 billion years of organic experience and evolution represented by the DNA coding found in each one of us and also in the 250,000 year-old mitochondrial DNA that makes up our 47th chromosome. 

Those who do not know or who do not remember the past are doomed to relive it, but we are now at the point where we do remember, and upon remembering, must be set free.

Assemblies Are Not Committees

 By Anna Von Reitz

We have noticed a disturbing confusion happening as more and more Assemblies grapple with the details for setting up the International Business Assembly, Militia, and Jural Assembly--- the other "Three Pillars" beyond the General Assembly.  

Some individuals and groups are making the mistake of treating these other Three Pillars like Committees, which they are not.  

They are subsets of the General Assembly.  

They naturally represent smaller special purpose assemblies--- but assemblies nonetheless. 

These special-purpose assemblies are imbued with more powers than any Committee, even Standing Committees, and even though they report back to the General Assembly, they have substantial latitude to take actions within their own sphere.

The Chairman or Chairwoman acting as Spokesperson for the International Business Assembly occupies the same role as the General Assembly Chairman, only on behalf of the smaller, more specialized International Business Assembly. 

The Chairpersons or Directors don't get to pick and choose who is a member of the International Business Assembly or the Militia or the Jural Assembly. 

All State Citizens are by definition eligible to serve on the International Business Assembly.  

All State Assembly Members who are physically fit to render service of some kind in the State Assembly Militia are eligible to join. 

All State Assembly Members who are alive and well are similarly eligible to join the Jural Assembly and serve in any capacity they are eligible and able to serve without conflict of interest.   

There are no other additional special requirements attached to these subset assemblies, no special vetting unless you hold an elected office. 

(Jury Selection is a form of vetting but not in the sense implied by a Vetting Committee; rather, each case presents individual possible conflicts of interest that have to be discovered and weeded out.) 

We are at pains to explain these matters upfront and for everyone, because we hear rumors of people being elected as, say, Chairman of the International Business Assembly, or Director of the Militia, or Chairman of the Jural Assembly, and then going off on a rampage of disqualifying people. 

Let us repeat: 

(1) Anyone who is eligible to serve as a State Citizen is eligible to sit as a member of the International Business Assembly; 

(2) Anyone who is physically able to contribute to the effort is eligible to be a member of the State Assembly Militia.  Maybe you are 85 and only able to make sandwiches or do paperwork -- you are still eligible to be part of your State Assembly Militia;
  
(3) Anyone who is a member of the General Assembly is eligible to fulfill appropriate roles within the Jural Assembly. 

There are no requirements that you have to own land (beyond owning your own body) or be married or stand on your head, walk a straight line drawn on the pavement, or be able to sing the Hallelujah Chorus. You don't have to be insured, licensed, or bonded (that's the Other Guys) and you don't have to suddenly Kiss Butt because someone was elected to do a job and act as Chair or Director. 

In our Government there is no positional authority, only functional authority.  

Offices are functions and those holding them are functionaries in our system of government; they have the right and responsibility to do the job they have been elected to do, but they did not, like the Pigs in Animal Farm, become "more equal" than anyone else by virtue of being elected.  

As such, those we entrust with the duties of office, are constrained to protect the individual rights of every member of the group and cannot secure for themselves any special authority apart from the duties and customs of their office. 

The Chairman or Chairwoman of the International Business Assembly is simply a Spokesperson for the IB Assembly as a whole.  They don't get to pick and choose who can be a State Citizen, nor do they get to pick and choose which State Citizens take an interest in the IB Assembly and shoulder the work. 

The leader of the State Assembly Militia has the responsibility of coordinating and implementing State-level deployment of assistance to local counties and participating in interstate rescue and relief efforts. They did not die, become God, and rule as emperors over all they survey. 

The Chairman of the Jural Assembly is responsible for organizing the Courts, Jury Pools, and working with the Elections Committee to conduct elections for Justices and other Court Offices.  The Chairman may also ramrod educational programs about the Common Law we practice and other topics of interest. The character of their office is that of an executive administrator.  They aren't here to lord it over anybody; like the rest of us, they are here to get a job done.

"Secret Meetings"

 By Anna Von Reitz

Small group meetings of county assemblies or coffee klatsching of Assembly members, or Assembly Committees in other settings, don't constitute "secret meetings".  

People in our tradition are allowed to freely associate and have the right of freedom of association. Any American can talk to any other American or Americans as a group, without it being a "secret meeting" and they can talk about any subject they please.     

When we talk about secret meetings we are talking about clandestine  meetings of, for example, Terrorists, who might want to undermine our efforts or stage an attack against our Assembly, or undeclared Agents seeking to set up some kind of False Flag or Entrapment Scheme.  

In the past, these sorts of activities have led to unnecessary tragedies and they are often hard to discern and separate from the routine and innocent comings and goings of our living government. 

In Colorado, Michael R. Hamilton, a self-admitted Federal Insurance Agent, made a habit of showing up at the private homes and work sites of members of the original Colorado Assembly and "talking them up" one by one, so that when they met as an Assembly, his pernicious reasonings and "facts" were already in their minds.  

Of course, he didn't tell him that his "facts" were taken out of context or that they applied to a completely different jurisdiction--- and they were not yet educated enough to discern his deceit.  

As a result, these good men are facing more than three decades of imprisonment at the hands of their own employees --- unless we succeed in overturning the convictions that bind them and bring this travesty of justice to an end. 

Those one-on-one meetings were "secret meetings" in the sense we intend -- even though it appeared to be just a couple of guys talking about whatever. 

Thus it is more the subject matter and the actions being promoted that determine whether a meeting is "secret" in this sense or not.  

Is someone advocating confrontation and violence? Promoting actions that are questionable?  Have they got you button-holed, somehow sequestered away from the group?  Are they pushing an agenda?  Harping on one or two or a few snippets of history or court cases that seem to support whatever they are promoting? 

In the case of Michael R. Hamilton, he was advocating confronting the Colorado Court System by going to the Courthouse and making threats and disrupting the proceedings.  

You will note that he sent other men to do this, but never went himself. 

All those little "secret meetings", one by one, had their effect and fruition, and put the Colorado Nine behind bars. 

Another such travesty is exemplified by the case of Schaefer Cox, a young, outspoken advocate of the Second Amendment here in Alaska.  

The FBI leaned on a former felon facing charges on another matter completely to act as a Snitch and Influencer -- so, this much older man got Schaefer to engage in private conversations about possible outcomes of a legal action that had been brought against Schaeffer and seduced him into making "contingency plans" --- what would Schaeffer do if....

Again, these meetings were pretty much one on one, or involved very small groups of two or three people, sitting around blowing steam --- but those sessions were being recorded and when they lapsed into considering potential acts of violence against a Judge, the Insurrection Act kicked in. 

Schaeffer Cox was given a multi-decade criminal conviction for a "thought crime" --- which is, of course, impossible in our system of justice, but common in the foreign maritime and Admiralty courts. 

Schaeffer was entrapped to this end, by a petty felon trying to escape prosecution himself by cooperating with Federal Agents --who were setting up this trap very deliberately from end to end. 

And they succeeded; this very young man, only 26 at the time, was wrested away from his wife and infant, and thrown into the Federal Prison hopper, along with 25 million other Americans --- most of whom also don't deserve to be incarcerated. 

Why?  Because of "secret meetings" that were pre-staged, directed, and recorded. 

Schaeffer is still in jail for the "crime" of thinking bad thoughts about a corrupt Judge -- out loud.  He never actually did anything to harm anyone. 

So when we are talking about "secret meetings" we are talking about something quite different than the sorts of meetings that take place among Assembly Committees, or members talking about common topics of interest.  

We are talking about very private meetings in which members are being influenced and prodded and perhaps even convinced to take violent or disruptive actions against specific targets on a one-on-one or small group basis. 

These targets are often Judges, who, as we have seen, are typically "Lesser Magistrates" of the Municipal Courts representing "the United States" protected under the Insurrection Act. 

We are not talking about County Assemblies as "secret meetings" just because they don't inform the State Coordinator.   

We are not talking about Assembly Committees meeting at a coffee shop. 

We are not talking about individuals planning to make a presentation before the General Assembly, or planning a social event, or any number of completely legitimate activities. 

The tenor and purposes of true "secret meetings" are quite different. They are purposeful and their purpose is to influence and incite.  

If you find yourself pulled off into a corner with some yahoo who is intent on getting you to do something or say something that is confrontational or violent-- watch out. 

If you encounter someone who is selling their interpretation of Federal Code or various court cases as the Gospel --- watch out.  

Most of you are not educated enough yet to be able to correctly interpret codes and match up jurisdictions.  This means that you don't know if a section of code or a particular court case applies to your situation or not.  

Report these kinds of activities to your Marshal-at-Arms and steer clear. 

Discuss things and do things in the open. Be transparent and protect your rights to free speech and free association, at the same time that you prudently conduct your business, so that nobody can accuse you or your Assembly of wrong-doing of any kind.

A Timely Repost Concerning "Insurrection"

 By Anna Von Reitz

With politicians in the District of Columbia throwing the words "Insurrection" and "Sedition" around like popcorn kernels, and the January 6th Visitors (I decline the Mainstream Media label, "Protestors") being accused of these serious crimes, this is a timely posting of the rewritten (circa 1954) Insurrection Act, so that people can get a better idea of what "insurrection" and "sedition" and "misprision of treason" and other such arcane words mean. 

I also mean for everyone to know what to do in the event that you become aware of any such nefarious activities, because it is your duty to inform certain officials if you become aware of these "crimes of state".  

What is problematic in these recitations is, as always, which "United States" is being referenced?   The verbiage runs "the United States", but that same verbiage has been used in so many different contexts and holds so many different meanings, it is necessary to nail down the specifics in the definitions section of the Act.  

We can tell you from long practice and the time period involved, that in 1954, the phrase "the United States" in Federal Code generally means the Municipal United States Government, while The United States is and remains the name of this country as a nation-state in proper English. 

The entity being protected, then, is not this country and not its national government.  It's the Municipal Federal Subcontractor and its government that is mistakenly or additionally being protected by the Territorial Government's Insurrection Act. 

Please note that from 1776 onward, the Union States did business as "the United States" and continued to do so until 1851, when they began operating as The United States. In 1790 the Municipal Government also started doing business as "the United States" when they exercised delegated powers.  

From 1787 to 1861, the Federal Republic did business as the States of America, but its citizens were known as United States Citizens, as opposed to U.S. (Territorial) Citizens, which also causes some confusion about which "United States" is being referenced. 

You will also note that our assemblies are not included in the list of organizations subject to the Insurrection Act and its reporting requirements --- for the simple reason that our State Assemblies are  guaranteed the right to peaceably assemble and can't be overruled by our own employees.  

With these issues flagged and noted, please familiarize yourself with another Federal oxymoron: "civilian military", which they used in this Act and in several other Acts to describe civilians acting as Uniformed Officers (doctors, lawyers, dentists, etc.) and Federal Employees other than military employees. 

Remember that charges such as "seditious conspiracy" have often been applied when people have made "contingency plans" involving Federal Officials, especially Federal Judges, who are equated in these subsections with the government of the United States. 

According to the Federales, "sedition" and "seditious conspiracy" can be mere thought crimes, and any transgression impeding the operations of the United States Government, say, interrupting court proceedings, can be painted with the same brush.

As a result, the Insurrection Act is one of the most dangerous pieces of legislation ever passed in terms of abridging and denying the rights of free speech and association.  And while it is meant to be applied to Federal employees and their dependents, it is often gratuitously misapplied to Americans merely presumed to be Federal citizens.  

Another very destructive and dangerous piece of legislation that is routinely misapplied is the National Defense Authorization Act, which grants the Federal Corporations carte blanche to trample the Constitutional Guarantees and Natural Rights of Federal Corporation Employees --- and is often misapplied to average Americans, too.
