Are we there yet?

No, but we are getting very close.

We are now at the point, I suspect, that our colonial ancestors were in the early 1770s. They were still British subjects, but had begun to question the relationship – the supposed right of the British sovereign to rule them. Within a very short time, they would reject the relationship in toto – on principle – and would become Americans.

I believe we are in roughly the same spot as those soon-to-be-Americans of the early 1770s.

An awakening is taking place. Millions of people are wising up to the fraud that is contained in the sentence, “consent of the governed.” Are learning to reflexively cringe for their soon-to-shorn freedoms whenever a politician utters the word. Have come to understand that the sprawling beast in Washington no more represents them – let alone has the slightest interest in protecting them (let alone respecting their rights) than the ossified oligarchs of parliament represented the colonists or had any interest in protecting anything other than their power and the sacks of loot that always accompany its exercise.

We – millions of Americans – now understand the nature of the relationship: Master – and slave. That due process itself has been taken away from us. That we are now to be denied even the elemental decency of being informed of the charges against us before we are taken away into the night, to be “indefinitely detained,” on the mere say-so of men with guns and badges. That when we are “asked” to “contribute” it means guns will be shoved under our chins. That we no longer have a single right that’s not conditional at best – if not entirely defunct.

Submit. Obey.

We have become aware that almost no aspect of our lives is left unmolested. We cannot eat, work or even sleep in our own beds without government supervision – and that very soon, even our recreations and private habits will likely fall under the “commerce clause” since these may be said to affect “health care” and thus, are of “interest” to the government.

We – that is, almost half the population – also knows the futility of voting.

            Great Britain lost the Revolution on the battlefield, but never gave up its attempt to tax the colonies - what is going on now was initiated as soon as the ink dried on the Declaration of Independence.  The following is all evidenced by the actual statutes and regulations:             

            The federal government has absolutely no jurisdiction over a sovereign American as the Constitution only grants the government jurisdiction over foreign commerce, interstate commerce, and trade with the Indians.  This is because the Constitution is subordinate to the Declaration of Independence which states clearly that “all men are created equal” (and, of course, women).  The United States Code (U.S.C.) lists the organic legal documents of America in the following order:  “The Declaration of Independence”, “The Articles of Confederation”, “The Northwest Ordinance”, and “The Constitution”.  All statutes (laws) within the U.S.C. must, therefore, conform to the jurisdiction of the Constitution.  Intrastate commerce is simply human action – all Americans are equal with no one having any power over anyone else.

            Of course your first response to the above statement is that you must do whatever the I.R.S., the A.T.F., the S.E.C., the F.D.A., the E.P.A., the F.C.C., the F.T.C., etc. tell you to do or face criminal charges. 

            There can be no federal regulation that applies to a sovereign American as the federal government has no jurisdiction over intrastate commerce (human action), so there must be something else going on since all statutes (laws) must derive their authority from the Constitution.

            Here’s what’s going on:  Great Britain never gave up in its attempt to lay its taxes from the mid-1700’s, the Stamp Act and the Townshend Acts, on the colonies.  Even though Great Britain lost the American Revolution it still considers America its subject.  Knowing that the Constitution does not and cannot grant the federal government any jurisdiction over intrastate commerce, it sent in its bankers to slowly and deceitfully take over America through the foreign commerce clause.  Even today, the banking center of the world is located in London, known as the “Crown”. 

            Rather than go into all the detail here, I will list the Posts from my Blog, “The Social Security Scam”, with a slight description of the information to be found at each link.  Or you can immediately go to http://wp.me/pCW6e-7h to see the “Bankers’ Blueprint to Destroy American Sovereignty” as this link to the “Bankers’ Blueprint” will also tie into all of the following links.

 

            The A.T.F. is based upon an unconstitutional Act of Congress approved on March 3, 1791, written by the bankers’ lead man, Alexander Hamilton – the tax on stills and the stills’ distillate which caused the “Whiskey Rebellion”.  This Act initiated “internal duties” in America.  The A.T.F. taxes were all originally paid by stamp just as the Stamp Act and the Townshend Acts did in the mid-1700’s.  It was very important to the bankers’ plan to pass this Act of Congress very early in this country’s history.  To hide the fact that this was an unconstitutional Act, the collectors of these new taxes were to be those already empowered to collect the previously laid taxes – the Customs.  The Congress under the Constitution first convened on March 4, 1789, so the Act that established “internal duties” was passed only 2 years after the birth of this government.  The gist of this is that the A.T.F. is within the Customs.  Go to http://wp.me/pCW6e-1b for more information on the “Whiskey Rebellion”.

            The income tax was approved in an Act of Congress (August 5, 1861) concerning importing (foreign commerce) as a tax on the collectors of the “internal duties”.  Obviously, if the collectors of the “internal duties” are within the Customs, the income tax collectors must also be within the Customs.  Customs is foreign commerce.  The I.R.S. is also within the Customs.  Go to http://wp.me/pCW6e-3Z to see the jurisdiction of the internal revenue laws.  Go to http://wp.me/pCW6e-4A to see the Act of Congress that created the income tax.

            What about the Supreme Court decisions concerning the 16th Amendment (the income tax amendment) that held that the federal government always had the power to lay an income tax?  These decisions all held that no new jurisdiction was granted to the federal government.  Since the Declaration of Independence is the organic law of the land stating that “all men are created equal”, the Constitution cannot grant the federal government any jurisdiction over intrastate commerce (human action).  Therefore, since the government was granted no new jurisdiction and, as well, since the Court held that the government always had the power to impose an income tax, that tax must be within one of the already existing federal government jurisdictions – it’s foreign commerce.  Go to http://wp.me/pCW6e-3a to see a breakdown of all the Supreme Court decisions concerning the income tax and the 16th Amendment. 

            During the Reconstruction Period following the Civil War, the 14th Amendment to the Constitution was ratified under the propaganda that it would create equality among the various races.  The real reason was to create the foundation for moving into the jurisdiction of foreign commerce.  What was created by the 14th Amendment is now known as the “ U.S. citizen” (or the 14th Amendment citizen).  A “ U.S. citizen” is defined as a person born in one of the States who then acquires U.S. possession citizenship.  Now since the U.S. possessions are under total control of the federal government, a U.S. possession citizen is under the government’s jurisdiction and control.  Now what person would give away sovereignty by acquiring U.S. possession citizenship?  No one would, of course, but that is what the birth certificate is all about in today’s world – you claim to be a “ U.S. citizen”.    

            The 16th Amendment was ratified on February 3, 1913.  Later that year the Federal Reserve Act was approved.  The book “The Creature from Jekyll Island” exposes the creation of the Fed, however, without the groundwork laid as exposed above, the Fed could not simply take over the federal government and control Americans.  Why?  Because as stated above, the federal government has absolutely no jurisdiction over intrastate commerce – no jurisdiction over sovereign Americans. 

            The Fed bankrupted the federal government in 1933.  The Code of Federal Regulations (C.F.R.) was written in the mid-1930’ to evidence the underlying jurisdiction of the statutes (laws) of the United States Code (U.S.C.).  Title 11 U.S.C., “Bankruptcy”, is implemented by title 11 C.F.R., “Federal Elections”.  This evidences the government’s bankruptcy – we are only electing a bankruptcy “administration”.

            The Fed caused the great stock market crash of 1929 and the Great Depression that followed in the 1930’s.  It then used the media’s propaganda that the federal government would never allow this kind of devastation to happen again by creating Social Security.  But as stated many times, the federal government has no jurisdiction over sovereign Americans as it does not have and cannot have any intrastate jurisdiction.  So F.I.C.A. was created, but it is a U.S. possession tax.  This ties back to the “ U.S. citizen” (14th Amendment).  A “ U.S. citizen” may apply for F.I.C.A. since a “ U.S. citizen” has unknowingly acquired U.S. possession citizenship.

            The Form SS-5 that one uses to apply for a S.S.# is actually a federal employment form.  By applying for a S.S.# one becomes a “taxpayer”.  A “taxpayer” is defined in the code (26 CFR 2.1-1(a)(5)) as a member of the Merchant Marine.  Think about it - only federal employees are liable for federal employment taxes.           

            In 1939 the Internal Revenue Code was written – it incorporates all the original internal revenue laws (based upon the unconstitutional Act of Congress that Alexander Hamilton authored in 1791), the Social Security laws, and the Merchant Marine Act of 1936.  Within the Internal Revenue Code the U.S. possessions are treated as foreign countries.  This now makes the “ U.S. citizen” a foreigner as well.

            The combination of the terms “taxpayer” and “ U.S. citizen” is known as a “ U.S. resident” – the total slave of the international bankers (counterfeiters).  Go to http://wp.me/pCW6e-3g for the statutes and regulations that define all the legal terms.

            This completes the subjugation of the once sovereign American.  On the Form SS-5 one checks the box labeled “ U.S. citizen” – the other categories have to do with aliens, thus, it concerns foreign commerce.

            Great Britain’s bankers have successfully taken over America through subterfuge and the use of legal “terms” that derive their jurisdiction from the foreign commerce clause of the Constitution.  Just as in the War of 1812, Great Britain is now impressing Americans, as the Merchant Marine, into service for its own ends.  Go to http://wp.me/PCW6e-E for the “Social Security Scam”.
