Are you a citizen of the United States?

In the previous post, we hopefully convinced you that the United States is not our country. The United States of America represents the combined 50 states as well as the state of the District of Columbia, but when you say the words “the United States,” you are only talking about the District of Columbia and nothing more. So what exactly does it mean to be a citizen of the United States?

Before we can answer that question, we must go back to a time before the civil war. You see, before the civil war, no one was a citizen of the United States. Everyone was a citizen of the State where they were born, which lasted a lifetime. If I were born in Georgia, then I was a citizen of Georgia and would be known as a Georgian. Each State in the Union was like this. Another word used to represent these citizens was Nationals or State Nationals. Each citizen of each State was sovereign and protected by the Constitution to ensure they had life, liberty, freedom, and protection of property just like each of his/her neighbors.

There are many theories as to exactly why the Civil War broke out and why it was fought. Some people side on Lincoln being a bad actor and deliberately starting the war in order to increase the power of the Federal government, others think it was fought over slavery, and probably the more correct and primary reason it was fought was over the Federal government and the northern States taking advantage of the southern States. At the end of the day, though, it was fought, the South lost, and something extremely odd took place afterward.

After the war ended, the northern States, along with the Federal government, took over the legislatures of the Southern States in order to bring them back into the Union. The 13th Amendment was passed to free the slaves, but the Southern States were not allowing the blacks to participate in society. They were banned from most places, and the feelings in the South were negative towards them being there. There were probably plenty of people wanting to send them all back to Africa and be done with the whole thing. But instead, the Federal government and these hijacked States passed the 14th amendment that forever changed the face of our country. To explain, let’s look first at the part of the 14th that caused the problem.

14th Amendment: “All persons born or naturalized in the United States and
subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United
States and of the State wherein they reside.”

In the last post, we discussed that jurisdiction thereof literally means anyone subject to the Federal Government rules and regulations that are born in the United States are citizens of the United States. It is also a worthy note to realize that it doesn’t mention anything about the parents or them being born in a State of the Union, but rather being born in the United States (District of Columbia and its possessions and territories). This means that all of these kids being born to illegal parents are only US Citizens if they were born in Washington DC, a military base, Puerto Rico, or the Post Office. Otherwise, they are not actually citizens, and what they’re doing is illegal.

You will also notice similar verbiage in the Constitution for each state, as they’ve all adopted this clause for themselves. Let’s see what the Supreme Court has to say about all of this.

Cory et al. v. Carter, 48 Ind. 327 (1874)
“The first clause of the 14th Amendment made negroes citizens of the United States, and citizens of the State in which they reside and thereby created two classes of citizens, one of the United States and the other of the state.”

Also, remember something, this judge used lowercase state because he is part of the Federal government, and the states are foreign to him. We covered this in the previous post.

Du Vernay v. Ledbetter 61 So.2d 573
“A person may be a citizen of the United States and yet be not identified or identifiable as a citizen of any particular state.”

Gardina v. Board of Registrars, 160 Ala. 155 48 S. 788, 791 (1909)
“There are, then, under our republican form of government, two classes of citizens, one of the United States and one of the state. One class of citizenship may exist in a person, without the other, as in the case of a resident of the District of Columbia, but both classes usually exist in the same person.”

Milvaine vs Coxe’s Lessee, 8 U.S. 598 (1808
“No fiction can make a natural born subject.”

That is to say, no fiction, be it a corporation, a statute law, or an administrative regulation, can mutate a natural born Sovereign into someone who is subject to his own creations. Author and scholar Lori Jacques has put it succinctly as follows:

 As each state is sovereign and not a territory of the United 
 States, the  meaning is  clear that state citizens are not 
 subject  to  the  legislative  jurisdiction  of  the  United 
 States.     Furthermore,  there   is  not   the  slightest 
 intimation in  the Constitution  which created  the  "United 
 States" as  a political  entity that  the "United States" is 
 sovereign over its creators. 

I have a lot of other cases that ruled on these facts, and if you want more, then read the book I mentioned in the first post in this series. It covers tons of example court rulings to support there is a distinction between these two types of citizens.

So all of that rhetoric you see and hear about Sovereign Citizens being labeled a terrorist organization should be put in the same category as parents being labeled the same for not wanting their children exposed to perverted materials in school. It is all propaganda to get people to stay away from it. While I have very little positive to say about the Sovereign Citizens at the moment, I cannot take this particular aspect of their beliefs away from them. They are 100% correct, and they are 100% sovereign and not beholden to follow the Federal Government mandates.

If you were born in a state to parents that were citizens of the United States of America, one of the union States, then you are also a State National. This means that each and every one of us are holding dual citizenship and didn’t even realize it. Our State citizenship can’t be taken away. We will forever be a citizen of our respective States no matter where we move. But that does leave open a very good question that I”m currently about to set my focus on. Are we really citizens of the United States, or do we just declare ourselves this out of ignorance, giving the Federal Government jurisdiction over our lives?

Is a State National really a thing?

26 CFR 1.871-2 Non Resident Alien
The term ‘nonresident alien individual’ means an individual whose residence is not within the United States, and who is not a citizen of the United States.

26 USC 6012 (a)(1) Returns with respect to income taxes under subtitle A shall be made by the following:
(1)(A) Every individual having for the taxable year gross income which equals or exceeds the exemption amount, except that a return shall not be required of an individual-

26 USC 7701(a)(1): Person. The term “person” shall be construed to mean and include an individual, a trust, estate, partnership, association, company or corporation.

26 USC 7701(a)(30): United States person. The term “United States person” means–
(A) a citizen or resident of the United States,
(B) a domestic partnership,
(C) a domestic corporation,
(D) any estate (other than a foreign estate, within the meaning of paragraph (31)), and
(E) any trust if–
(i) a court within the United States is able to exercise primary supervision over the administration of the trust, and
(ii) one or more United States persons have the authority to control all substantial decisions of the trust.

26 USC 7701(a)(31):
Foreign estate or trust.
(A) Foreign estate. The term “foreign estate” means an estate the income of which, from sources without the United States which is not effectively connected with the conduct of a trade or business within the United States, is not includible in gross income under subtitle A.
(B) Foreign trust. The term “foreign trust” means any trust other than a trust described in subparagraph (E) of paragraph (30).

So only an individual is required to file income taxes, and an individual is defined as a person, and a person is defined as someone residing in or a citizen of the United States. I threw in that last code section to show what you really look like as a non-resident alien with respect to the Federal Government and ALL of its regulations and codes; “is not includible in gross income under subtitle A.” Also, keep in mind that when it listed “Domestic” above, it is domestic to the United States, not domestic to you. You are foreign to the United States as far as it is concerned.

We didn’t even need to get into the definition of “income” to prove we don’t owe income taxes, but that is also a valid reason not to pay them. Are you starting to see the fraud? Again, these people are doing all of this 100% legal. They use your ignorance to take advantage of you and take total control over your lives. This is one of the problems I have with the Sovereign Citizen movement, as they believe all sorts of wacky shit about Lincoln and corporations and birth certificates that they can’t validate, but they believe nonetheless. They also believe our Constitution is dead and that the Governments are ignoring it, but if you ask them to explain why the Supreme Court keeps killing bills and laws being passed, they go silent.

The main thing to understand going forward is that you are not a citizen of the United States but rather a citizen of the State you were born in. If anyone asks if you are one, just say: My name is John Doe, and I am a citizen of the State of Georgia, and I reside in Stockbridge or wherever you live. NEVER mark any boxes that claim you to be a United States Citizen.

Also, if you think this is all fake, take a look at a few more definitions:

8 USC 1101(a)(21) The term “national” means a person owing permanent allegiance to a state.

So if you want to know what to call yourself and you want to use a definition out of their code, just call yourself a National or a non-resident alien. Both will get you out of their jurisdiction and prevent them from having any power over you. The best part? It is exactly what you’ve been all along but were too ignorant to realize it. Stop being ignorant, and in the next post, I’m going to start researching whether we really are designated as citizens of the United States or if it is just something they let us claim about ourselves to give themselves power.
