This is the first of a series of articles that I’m writing to lay out a deception played upon citizens of the 50 states that, when completed, will literally blow your mind. I’ve been researching the functions of our government for years, but it wasn’t until the last year that things started falling into place., There have been many sources of information, but a few of the most detailed and informative have been “The Federal Zone” and “The Great IRS Hoax.” Both books have similar content and are available as pdf if you search, but the former is a much easier read. If court cases and codes are what you need, then these books will bring the entire fraud into view.
In this post, I do not aim to provide full proof of the fraud but to provide, instead, a summary of what has been done in the hopes it will be just enough to cause you to dig deeper. Before we begin, though, I want to provide a little history of what brought me to this place in my life and what I hope to accomplish.
I have been protesting income tax since the 90s, but purely from a Constitutional point of view. A few years ago, I got introduced to the Sovereign Citizen movement and started researching their claims. I am a very skeptical person and don’t trust anything people tell me. As a result, I immediately clashed with every member of this group because I was asking too many questions. Absolutely none of these people were able to answer even simple questions, and all kept telling me I had to do my own research. The thing that really started to wear on me, though, was every single one of them would cease communications and never respond again. Even people I had once considered friends would block my calls, and I’ve never heard or talked to them since.
The main question I was honestly trying to answer was where in legislation or code sections did it cover what a Sovereign was. After my state representative (of this group) accused me of being a government employee for asking such a question, I decided that instead of trying to prove these people correct, I was instead going to prove them wrong. I changed my entire focus to proving these people were idiots and, once done, would create a series of articles and videos to prove it.
At some point, I also ran into a guy that goes by the name of “Yusef El” on the youtube channel “High Frequency Radio.” He was just as arrogant and unhelpful as the entire sovereign citizen group but with a twist. He’s very smart and was posting books and references to better understand what was going on. He also accused me of being a government employee and said I was too stupid to understand the complexities of the fraud, but hey, maybe they were right, and this is only for smart people. The problem is we dumb people are starting to see our country fall apart, and it is time we wake everyone up. These people charge fees to talk to them, and I wanted to provide a free, simple 1,2,3… guide on how to fix it.
Once I’m done with this series of articles, I think you will realize a few things. First, everything these people are doing is legal. Second, everything these people are doing is evil. Third, it is through our complete ignorance of the law that they’re able to accomplish what they’re doing. Finally, our Constitution is the largest thorn in their side, and any thoughts in your head that it no longer matters should be thrown out immediately. If you doubt that last part, just ask yourself why it is the Supreme Court keeps throwing out Bidens attempts at destroying our country. They may be mostly dysfunctional at this point, but they are still there, protecting us from laws that have gone too far.
This brings me to my final point before we begin. I have a young son, and I am watching our country fall apart right before my eyes. The generations before us sat back and did what they were told, and right or wrong, it got us to where we are today. The founding fathers said in the very beginning that our Republic would only stand as long as patriots fought to keep it alive. Democracies, Socialism, Communism, and Marxism all exist and eventually take over countries because it is too hard to fight for a Republic. It is much easier to convince people to take free things than to work hard for freedom. I don’t want my son living in a socialist country or, worse, no country at all. Hopefully, we can wake enough people up to take our once-great nation back from the mafia leaders currently in control. Time will tell. If you’d like to read a very short book written by a truly great economist on different forms of government, I would highly recommend: Middle of the Road Leads To Socialism
So what is this talk then about the United States? Isn’t it the 50 states of the Union? When the IRS code and UCC codes talk about “the United States” or being a citizen of “the United States,” isn’t it talking about our country? Could there be more to the conversation?
To start at the very beginning, we must go to the Constitution itself and discuss where it came from and what it represents.
When the States of the Union decided to form a Federal Government to represent them, as well as a unified national front to the rest of the world, it sat down to write up a document. This document would serve as a blueprint for how to rectify disputes between the several states as well as the citizens of those states. It would also lay out the rules by which this Federal Government would operate and the limitations it would live under. So the first thing we must keep in mind going forward is that the “States” wrote this document, and just like capitalizing the letter “I” when you talk about yourself, the letter “S” in “State” is capitalized to represent “WHO” was writing the Constitution. I know this seems an odd thing to remember, but as you’ll soon see, it means everything.
Now that we’ve established who is writing the document and what the document is for, let’s take a look at a few of the clauses of the Constitution to begin laying out our facts:
Article 1 Section 8
“The Congress shall have Power To lay and collect Taxes,
Duties, Imposts and Excises, to pay the Debts and provide
for the common Defence and general Welfare of the United
States; but all Duties, Imposts and Excises shall be uniform
throughout the United States;”
There has been a lot of debate about the use of the words “United States” in this paragraph, and it was settled a long ago that what was meant here was the States of the Union or the several States as the uniform and welfare statements would make no sense otherwise. The main point to make here, though, is that taxing property was completely off-limits. Our country had just fought a war to get out from under a king that taxed us to death. There was no way the several States of the Union were going to create a new monster and unleash it onto themselves.
“To exercise exclusive Legislation in all Cases whatsoever,
over such District (not exceeding ten Miles square) as
may, by Cession of particular States, and the Acceptance
of Congress, become the Seat of the Government of the
United States, and to exercise like Authority over all Places
purchased by the Consent of the Legislature of the State in
which the Same shall be, for the Erection of Forts, Maga-
zines, Arsenals, dock-Yards and other needful Buildings;
To make all Laws which shall be necessary and proper for
carrying into Execution the foregoing Powers, and all other
Powers vested by this Constitution in the Government of
the United States, or in any Department or Officer thereof.”
The first thing to recognize here is that “State” is capitalized in all of these areas. It is also worth noticing that this new District being set up would have total jurisdiction over its area, which is defined as a 10-mile square area as well as any purchases or territories it took for its own.
At this point, we’ve only looked at a few relevant clauses of the Constitution to show that the District being set up was to have exclusive control over itself and that it had a place to live. We’ve purposely left off other important sections for now in order to stay focused on our main point. I do want to point out one majorly important statement here, though: “Powers vested by this Constitution in the Government of “the United States.”
Let’s look at a definition in the code to see what it has to say about the United States.
USC 3002 Section 15 Definition) “United States” means— (A) a Federal corporation; (B) an agency, department, commission, board, or other entity of the United States; or (C) an instrumentality of the United States.
Ok, that is a bit odd, but let’s see what else we can find.
26 CFR 1.911-2(g)
(g) United States. The term “United States” when used in a geographical sense includes any territory under the sovereignty of the United States. It includes the states, the District of Columbia, the possessions and territories of the United States, the territorial waters of the United States, the air space over the United States, and the seabed and subsoil of those submarine areas which are adjacent to the territorial waters of the United States and over which the United States has exclusive rights, in accordance with international law, with respect to the exploration and exploitation of natural resources.
Expressio unius est exclusio alterius – A maxim of statutory interpretation meaning that the expression of one thing is the exclusion of another.
Let’s dig into this one a bit because it is purposely misleading, and you’ll come to see this shortly. The first thing to notice here is that the UCC code was written by the United States, and therefore the use of the capital “State” means their State, and the use of a lowercase “state” means the 50 sovereign states. Again, this is due to who is writing the law or code.
We will get into sovereignty more in a minute because it is a bit confusing at first, but the basic idea is that the United States is the Federal District (what we call the District of Columbia) and not the 50 states. This is easily proven because the Federal Government has no sovereignty over any state of the union. The States are sovereign, and they created the Federal District. You can’t have two sovereigns and have one more powerful than the other. So when they say: “under the sovereignty of the United States,” you immediately know that they can’t possibly be talking about any of the 50 states.
It still has a geographical location, though, so there are no misstatements in the claim. We can only say that it is purposely misleading to make one believe it is talking about the entire country making up the 50 sovereign states when in fact, it is only talking about the District of Columbia. The fact that they listed only things that are part of that entity proves what is being claimed.
But hey, you say, that kinda makes sense but not a very strong argument to prove the United States is only talking about the District of Columbia and not the entire country. So let’s continue with the very next section of the same definition…
(h) Foreign country. The term “foreign country” when used in a geographical sense includes any territory under the sovereignty of a government other than that of the United States. It includes the territorial waters of the foreign country (determined in accordance with the laws of the United States), the air space over the foreign country, and the seabed and subsoil of those submarine areas which are adjacent to the territorial waters of the foreign country and over which the foreign country has exclusive rights, in accordance with international law, with respect to the exploration and exploitation of natural resources.
Again, we’ve determined there is no way a State of the Union could fall under the sovereignty of the United States, which means, to the Federal government, each of the 50 states is a foreign country with respect to itself. Let’s take a look at what happened when Alaska was getting overwhelmed and needed help from the Federal government with case overloads. They needed Federal judges to come and hear cases for them, but in order to do so, they had to modify the code to allow this to happen. Let’s take a look at these modifications and see what they say.
28 USC 297 Assignment of Judges
The Chief Justice or the chief judge of the United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit may assign any circuit, district, magistrate, or territorial judge of a court of the Ninth Circuit, with the consent of the judge so assigned, to serve temporarily as a judge of any duly constituted court of the freely associated compact states whenever an official duly authorized by the laws of the respective compact state requests such assignment and such assignment is necessary for the proper dispatch of the business of the respective court.
The Congress consents to the acceptance and retention by any judge so authorized of reimbursement from the countries referred to in subsection (a) of all necessary travel expenses, including transportation, and of subsistence, or of a reasonable per diem allowance in lieu of subsistence. The judge shall report to the Administrative Office of the United States Courts any amount received pursuant to this subsection.
Did you catch that? The first paragraph states that they can serve for any of the freely associated compact states, and section b) calls those states “countries.” This would seem to back up our claim, but maybe you’re still not convinced.
Here is Supreme Court Case: Caha v United States 152 US 213, 215
“This statute is one of universal application within the territorial limits of the United States, and is not limited to those portions which are within the exclusive jurisdiction of the national government, such as the District of Columbia. Generally speaking, within any state of this Union the preservation of the peace and the protection of person and property are the functions of the state government, and are not part of the primary duty, at least, of the nation. The laws of congress in respect to those matters do not extend into the territorial limits of the states, but have force only in the District of Columbia, and other places that are within the exclusive jurisdiction of the national government.”
Here is a Judge ruling that laws passed in the District of Columbia are not relevant to the several states. Also, note he is referring to the District of Columbia as the United States.
Hanley v. Donoghue, 116 U.S. 1
“The said records and judicial proceedings, so authenticated, shall have such faith and credit given to them in every court within the United States as they have by law or usage in the courts of the state from which they are taken.”
“For all national purposes embraced by the federal Constitution, the states and the citizens thereof are one, united under the same sovereign authority and governed by the same laws. In all other respects, the states are necessarily foreign to and independent of each other, their constitutions and forms of government being, although republican, altogether different, as are their laws and institutions.”
“No court is to be charged with the knowledge of foreign laws, but they are well understood to be facts which must, like other facts, be proved before they can be received in a court of justice. Talbot v. Seeman, 1 Cranch 1, 5 U. S. 38; Church v. Hubbart, 2 Cranch 187, 6 U. S. 236; Strother v. Lucas, 6 Pet. 763, 31 U. S. 768; Dainese v. Hale, 91 U. S. 13, 91 U. S. 20. It is equally well settled that the several states of the union are to be considered as in this respect foreign to each other, and that the courts of one state are not presumed to know, and therefore not bound to take judicial notice of, the laws of another state. In Buckner v. Finley, 2 Pet. 586,”
Again, we have more Supreme Court decisions stating the fact that the states are foreign to the United States as it only has jurisdiction over the District of Colombia and its possessions and enclaves. The first statement above was essentially saying that if a state case comes before a Federal court, the court must judge the case based on the individual state’s laws, not those of the Federal government, which is laid out in the Constitution itself.
(10)State – The term “State” shall be construed to include the District of Columbia, where such construction is necessary to carry out provisions of this title.
Note here again that they’re defining the United States as the District of Columbia and using the word “States” to mislead us. These States are their States and not those of the states of the union, which we’ve already set apart from them in the above Supreme Court decisions.
Loughborough v. Blake, 15 U.S. 3171
“The power of Congress to exercise exclusive jurisdiction in all cases whatsoever within the District of Columbia includes the power of taxing it.”
” …that Congress must be considered in two distinct characters — in one character as legislating for the states; in the other, as a local legislature for the District. In the latter character, it is admitted, the power of levying direct taxes may be exercised; but, it is contended for district purposes only, in like manner as the legislature of a state may tax the people of a state for state purposes.”
You thought I was kidding about the upper and lowercase stuff, but notice here they’ve used lowercase “states” because they’re not talking about States of their government but of the states of the union. You’ll also notice they’ve again ruled that states are sovereign over the United States, which only has jurisdiction over the District of Columbia and its possessions.
New York v Merriam 16 S.Ct 1073
“The United States Government is a foreign corporation with respect to a state.” Volume 20: Corpus Juris Secundum, (P 1785: NY re: Merriam 36 N.E. 505 1441 S.Ct. 1973, 41 L. Ed. 287)“
UNITED STATES GOVERNMENT CORPORATION (created on February 21, 1871 by the Forty-First Congress, Section 34, Session III, chapters 61 and 62: “An Act To Provide A Government for the District of Columbia”. This is also known as the “Act of 1871”.
16 Am Jur 2d, Conflict of Laws sec 2
Private international law assumes a more important aspect in the United States than elsewhere, for the reason that the several states, although united under the same sovereign authority and governed by the same laws for all national purposes embraced by the Federal Constitution, are otherwise, at least so far as private international law is concerned, in the same relation as foreign countries. The great majority of questions of private international law are therefore subject to the same rules when they arise between two states of the Union as when they arise between two foreign countries, and in the ensuing pages the words “state,” “nation,” and “country” are used synonymously and interchangeably, there being no intention to distinguish between the several states of the Union and foreign countries by the use of varying terminology.
It becomes difficult to know how far to go with these cases in order to prove the point. To say I haven’t even gotten started would be an understatement, but I hope that I’ve provided enough for you to understand that what you believe to know about what “the United States” is might be wrong. In every case I’ve found, and in every code section you and I are trying to live up to, the United States and its jurisdiction only apply to the District of Columbia and its possessions, which do not include the several States of the Union.
So if the United States isn’t the entire country, then what does it mean to be a citizen of the United States? That will be our next subject, and it will really get you woken up if you’re still asleep. We’ve been misled with income taxes and a lot of other things, and it is time we stop being purposely ignorant and learn what is going on so that we can take back our country. See you in the next post slaves.
