My last two posts, led to this posting. The Tea Party Economist – Secession and County Rights - (Gary North of Tea Party Economist) dealt with fledgling secession movements by counties. He suggested that they use a slogan called county rights. This is about freedom at the local level. The article led me to American Vision’s county rights project - I posted several items directly from that site, which glared out at me like a neon sign.
Most of us are quite aware of the many issues we face at the national and global level. That our basic freedoms are in dire jeopardy is old news. Just as the need to correct fraudulent voting -courtesy of the digitalization of the voting process- needs to be done at the local (precinct) level, many other personal rights are under attack.
I was stunned by the Federal Government’s intrusions of other rights concerning public lands, the resultant impact of local county economies, and the negative impact on people living in the areas affected. This video is one eye-opening revelation of why we need to mobilize at the local level, and how local sheriffs can be the vanguard to reverse government tyranny.
The Travel Management Plan (watch the video) is a four letter word as far as our freedom is concerned; it exists if you have U.S. Forest Service lands or federal lands that are in the hands and managed by the Federal Government.
Bear in mind that the Federal Government owns nearly 650 million acres of land – almost 30 percent of the land area of the United States.
This hour long video is worth every second. This a great start to recovering localism. The model should be emulated and expanded upon in every county.
When the people fear the government, there is tyranny. When the government fears the people, there is liberty. Thomas Jefferson

Seriously, What’s With All The “You Are a Slave” Stuff?
“We have gone from freedom to slavery, from sovereigns to serfs on the great Federal Manor via the Fourteenth Amendment. All due in large measure to the treachery and deception of words by the United States Supreme Court.” – Roger Sayles, p. 161. From Sovereign to Serf – Government by the Treachery and Deception of Words.
If you have wondered why all of your “patriot friends” continually warn you about being a slave, but were afraid to ask — this post is for you. And while you old-timers won’t learn anything new from reading this article, you’ll appreciate the simplicity and clarity of the author’s explanation.
You don’t own yourself — the Federal Reserve does.
For a while I have been receiving e-mails from a good friend who has asked me to investigate something weird about the Birth Certificates. He wanted me to take a look at them because they have certain numbers and other things printed on them that need an explanation.
When I looked at my own Birth Certificate, I noticed it was a copy of the original. So I went through old boxes and baby books that my Mom had saved before she died and found what I was looking for — my original Birth Certificate. It was brittle and yellowed with decades of age but — wow — it was NOT the original!
What I have learned since is kind of like discovering that you are part of the Matrix. It seems none of us have our original Birth Certificates — they are all copies. And the copies have a serial number on them, issued on special Bank Bond paper and authorized by “The American Bank Note Company.” Huh?
The truth is stranger than fiction. But here it is:
It seems that back in 1913 the United States was short of cash. World War I had depleted the treasury and there were several really bad financial panics — in 1907 especially — so the country needed to print more money than it had as equity to restore confidence in the money supply and get the economy back on its feet.
When you or I need more money, we use something as collateral and go to a bank for a loan. When a country needs more money it has to go somewhere also. But in 1913 there wasn’t anywhere to go. So the US created the Federal Reserve Act. This established a private central bank (The Federal Reserve Bank) that would regulate the amount of money the US government was allowed to borrow and put in circulation. It also would expect to be repaid, like any bank, with interest.
After only 20 years things went from bad to worse. During Franklin D. Roosevelt’s presidency, in 1933, the US was unable to pay its debt. The county was bankrupt. The private banks that made up the Federal Reserve demanded their money and Roosevelt responded. He had to use the only thing left of any value to pay the banks and continue doing business with them — the citizens of our country. Us!
Exactly how all this was orchestrated is too lengthy to be addressed here, but this much can be told. The original birth or naturalization record for every U.S. Citizen is on file in the official records in Washington, D.C. (you get to keep a copy!) and the property and assets of every living U.S. Citizen is pledged as collateral for the National Debt!
Within two weeks and three days each Certificate of Live Birth is to be filed in Washington D.C. Evidence reveals that there is even a Federal Children Department established by the Shepherd/Townsend Act of 1922 under the Department of Commerce that appears to be involved in this process in some way. Every citizen is given a number (the red number on the Birth Certificate) and each live birth is valued at from 650,000 to 750,000 Federal Reserve dollars in collateral from the Fed.
This kind of makes you feel a little different when you look at Federal Reserve Chairman, Bernanke, doesn’t it?
OK. Let’s take a pause to look at the Birth Certificates [below]. You will see the red numbers and you will see the fact that it is, in reality, a “Bank Note.” Congratulations — you and I are commodities!
Names in “ALL CAPS” on Birth Certificates
Since the early 1960s, State governments have issued Birth Certificates to “persons” with legal fictional names using “ALL CAPS” names. This is not a lawful record of your physical birth, but rather the acknowledgement of the “birth” of the juristic, all-caps name. It may appear to be your true name, but since no proper name is ever written in all caps (either lawfully or grammatically) it does not identify who you are. The Birth Certificate is the government’s self-created document of title for its new property — you and me! In a way, it makes us a kind of corporation whose company name is the same as our real name, but written in ALL CAPS. This “corporation” then generates taxes and wealth over its lifetime and in this way repays the collateral that Uncle Sam borrowed from the Federal Reserve.
Remember that “Bond” thing printed on the bottom of the certificate?
Bond. I a: A usually formal written agreement by which a person undertakes to perform a certain act (as fulfill the obligations of a contract) . . with the condition that failure to perform or abstain will obligate the person . . to pay a sum of money or will result in the forfeiture of money put up by the person or surety. lb: One who acts as a surety. 2: An interest-bearing document giving evidence of a debt issued by a government body or corporation that is sometimes secured by a lien on property and is often designed to take care of a particular financial need. — Ibid. — Merriam-Webster Dictionary of Law (1996). Banknote. A kind of negotiable instrument, a promissory note made by a bank payable to the bearer on demand, used as money, and in many jurisdictions is legal tender. Along with coins, banknotes make up the cash or bearer forms of all modern money.
Birth certificates are a form of securities called “warehouse receipts.” The items included on a warehouse receipt, as descried at Â§7-202 of the Uniform Commercial Code, the law which governs commercial paper and transactions, which parallel a birth certificate are:
the location of the warehouse where the goods are stored…(residence)
the date of issue of the receipt…..(“Date issued”)
the consecutive number of the receipt…(found on back or front of the certificate, usually in red numbers)
a description of the goods or of the packages containing them…(name, sex, date of birth, etc.)
the signature of the warehouseman, which may be made by his authorized agent…(municipal clerk or state registrar’s signature)
Birth certificates now appear to at least qualify as “warehouse receipts” under the Uniform Commercial Code. Black’s Law Dictionary, 7th ed. defines:
Warehouse Receipt. “…A warehouse receipt, which is considered a document of title, may be a negotiable instrument and is often used for financing with inventory as security.”
It is not difficult to see that a state-created Birth Certificate, with an ALL CAPS name is a document evidencing debt the moment it is issued.
Once a state has registered a birth document with the U.S. Department of Commerce, the Department notifies the Treasury Department, which takes out a loan from the Federal Reserve. The Treasury uses the loan to purchase a bond (the Fed holds a purchase money security interest in the bond) from the Department of Commerce, which invests the sale proceeds in the stock or bond market. The Treasury Department then issues Treasury securities in the form of Treasury Bonds, Notes, and Bills using the bonds as surety for the new securities.
This cycle is based on the future tax revenues of the legal person whose name appears on the Birth Certificate. This also means that the bankrupt, corporate U.S. can guarantee to the purchasers of their securities the lifetime labor and tax revenues of every citizen of the United States/American with a Birth Certificate as collateral for payment. This device is initiated simply by converting the lawful, true name of the child into a legal, juristic name of a person.
Legally, you are considered to be a slave or indentured servant to the various Federal, State and local governments via your STATE-issued and STATE-created Birth Certificate in the name of your all-caps person. Birth Certificates are issued so that the issuer can claim exclusive title to the legal person created thereby.
Sleep well, fellow slaves.

Dec 19, 2012 - Proof that Paying Federal Income Tax is Voluntary
Uncle Sam Doesn’t Want You to Know that Income Taxes May Be Voluntary for Most Americans!
Is Paying Federal Income Tax Voluntary?
Over years of studying government tyranny, monetary reform and freedom, I’ve run across a lot of information about how unconstitutional the US Income Tax is, how the 16th Amendment was never ratified by the requisite number of states and how there’s really no law that compels citizens to pay Federal Income Tax. One of the best documentaries on this topic was the late Aaron Russo’s film “From Freedom to Fascism.” At one of Ron Paul’s early campaign rallies in the Bay Area in July, 2007, I even arranged for Joe Banister, a former IRS enforcement agent and whistle-blower living locally in San Jose to speak about the topic. A lot of the arguments seemed very convoluted to me, and for sure nothing seemed clear enough that you could take on the IRS and a heavy-handed judiciary and expect to come away unscathed.
TAXATION BY MISREPRESENTATION
Along comes a fantastic new e-book, “Taxation by Misrepresentation,” by John W. Benson, which I now believe is by far the best resource to understanding the true constitutional aspects of our income tax system, as well as the origin of the laws and processes involved in compelling citizens to pay it. Far from being convoluted, it is an extremely logical, sound and extraordinarily well-researched book. The engineer in me can connect all the dots and see where all the legal facts and foundations lie.
Taxation By Misrepresentation, John W. Benson
“Taxation by Misrepresentation” lays out the definitive case that US income tax is absolutely a “voluntary” tax, which cannot be made compulsory by virtue of its unconstitutional nature and which requires a great deal of fraud and outright intimidation on the part of the IRS to convince people that what can only be voluntary, is instead a lawful requirement.
The thesis of this book by John Benson is that the US Constitution explicitly disallows a tax on one’s labor, and that the 16th Amendment took “Income” to mean the same thing as used in the Corporation Excise Tax Act of 1909. Current Treasury regulations explicitly state exemptions from “gross income” include “those items of income which are, under the Constitution, not taxable by the Federal Government,” without ever enumerating such. But our treacherous overlords engineered a legalistic workaround for this thorny dilemma. Such a tax could be implemented if it was in accordance with “due process” according to the Fifth Amendment to the Constitution, requiring that such due process does not differ in principle from the statute law of England for the King to collect revenues at the time the Constitution was formed.
As a result, all IRS processes and procedures are, in substance and effect, simply the ancient English revenue processes and procedures employed by the king’s revenue officials in the Exchequer (Treasury) in 1791 dressed up in modern garb. To be sure, the author claims, the words used are different and not easily understood. In fact, these procedures and the laws relating back to them are deliberately shrouded in complexity in order to avoid the populace gaining any real insights to the foundations of our tax system.
These procedures and the laws relating back to them are deliberately shrouded in complexity in order to avoid the populace gaining any real insights to the foundations of our tax system.
Therefore, John claims, in order to understand today’s tax processes and procedures, you must understand the ancient processes employed by the Exchequer, some dating back in time before King John was forced to sign the Magna Carta, the Great Charter of Liberties, on the Plains of Runnymede in 1215. If you knew that the foundations of our tax code relate back prior to the Magna Carta, you are in a very small minority.
A precedent-setting Supreme Court tax case in 1856 cited several English treatises as authorities on the ancient processes used by the king’s Exchequer. John and his associate, Glenn Ambort, spent over a year hunting down the four principal treatises, as they are all long out of print, and read through each of them. They traced the tax processes and procedures employed by the IRS today and laid them side by side with the English processes. By this process, John demonstrates a compelling case that the income tax process used today by the IRS must be based upon one of the only two processes used by the king in 1791, both of which are cited in the 1856 Supreme Court case, namely, either the finding of an inquisition, aka an inquest of office (administrative hearing, in today’s terms,) or a “statute staple” process (an ancient form of contract enacted by Parliament for the benefit of merchants.)
TAXATION BY MISREPRESENTATION: Irwin Schiff, now serving a 13-plus year prison sentence for tax evasion and fraud, has written tax-protest books that are widely revered.
His conclusion as to which of these two processes apply to the Form 1040 tax return is both startling and has consequences that bring into question the convictions of countless Americans imprisoned for alleged tax crimes, not to mention the billions, perhaps trillions, of dollars collected by force in the name of tax laws. Essentially, the statute staple process is a voluntary contractual process used in merchant law and not common law. The result is that IRS taxation is a voluntary contractual process between consenting parties and cannot be compelled on an individual. Much of the IRS code and procedures today are therefore designed to both conform to this fact, while insidiously hiding its significance from the populace, and doing everything in their power to intimidate tax payers to “volunteering” payment, even if at gunpoint.
If this wasn’t bad enough, there’s another staggering implication to be revealed. In another blog post/book review I wrote, I covered how U.S. Citizens “volunteer” themselves into the status of “U.S. citizen” under the definition of the 14th Amendment. As I pointed out, this new “Federal” citizenship was initially intended for the recently freed slaves (rather than making them citizens of their states as most citizens were at the time). John points out in his book how Chief Justice Fuller described the 14th Amendment citizenship rule in United States v. Wong Kim Ark:
“The rule was the outcome of the connection in feudalism between the individual and the soil on which he lived, and the allegiance due was that of liegemen to their liege lord. It was not local and temporary, as was the obedience to the laws owed by aliens within the dominions of the Crown, but permanent and indissoluble, and not to be cancelled by any change of time or place or circumstances.
And it is this rule, pure and simple, which it is asserted determined citizenship of the United States during the entire period prior to the passage of the act of April 9, 1866, and the ratification of the Fourteenth Amendment, and governed the meaning of the words “citizen of the United States” and “natural-born citizen” used in the Constitution as originally framed and adopted. I submit that no such rule obtained during the period referred to, and that those words bore no such construction; that the act of April 9, 1866, expressed the contrary rule; that the Fourteenth Amendment prescribed the same rule as the act, and that, if that amendment bears the construction now put upon it, it imposed the English common law rule on this country for the first time, and made it “absolute and unbending” just as Great Britain was being relieved from its inconveniences.”
In other words, if you are a 14th Amendment “citizen,” you are a serf on the land, a liege to your lord, in this case the Federal Government. The Federal Government, as it would to a serf, “owns” your labor and can rightfully take your income now (the compensation for your labor) as it deems reasonable according to the contractual benefits you “applied for” when you “volunteer” or “contract” yourself into this status. Remember that under the Constitution, we have unalienable rights and are Citizens (cap “C”) of the United States of America (the country, not the corporation). How do you “volunteer” yourself to become a 14th Amendment citizen-serf, under the definition designed for freed slaves? Well, by “voluntarily” submitting your IRS Form 1040, you annually assert that you are a 14thAmendment citizen (small “c”). The 13th amendment prohibits involuntary servitude, but does not prohibit “voluntary” servitude according to contract law. Ergo, you have been had. This is less the America: Home of the Free and Land of the Brave, than the Home of Fools and the Land of Liars.

So, what do you do now?
John points out in very clear terms in his “Disclaimer” at the very opening of his book that this is a political battle. Do NOT stop filing the usual tax returns and paying the usual taxes that the IRS and the courts require. This would be like going to a Mafia crime boss and telling him there’s no law allowing him to extract his “security” payments. You will not come out better for the conversation. Better to realize that we have become a nation of thugs and corruption, and not laws, despite your education to the contrary. John pleads with his readers to unite to overturn the entire system and replace it with a fairer and more transparent tax system for all, rather than for a small number to try to win a few battles in courts that, in his view, are simply not going to allow any victories, truth and justice be damned.
John has made this a very easy read for the layman, but provided enough references that other researchers will be able to verify facts for themselves. He is close to releasing a legal guide for attorneys defending tax protesters that will be far more detailed based on his 30+ years of research. Finally, you will be amazed at the personal tribulations that John Benson and his colleague, Glenn Ambort, have been through, as detailed in the final chapters of the book. When you expose the fraudulent foundations of an empire, you are not electing the comfortable, easy way of life. But like they say, you only catch flak when you are over the target.
Obama’s class warfare: Don’t get fooled again
Exclusive: Chuck Norris exposes president’s ‘desperate’ attempt to divide nation
by Chuck Norris
Have you noticed how the Obama campaign has stepped up its class-warfare rhetoric as we draw closer to Election Day?
Obama is constantly resorting to this tactic because he’s simply unable to defend his own record in office as 23 million Americans are out of work or underemployed and the economy remains in distress.
Class warfare is all he has left.
But voters aren’t buying Obama’s polarizing rhetoric. In a Gallup survey of the 12 most important priorities this election year, the issue of “increasing taxes on wealthy Americans” came in dead last among voters. Understandably, Americans are far more concerned with issues such as “creating good jobs,” “reducing corruption in the federal government” and “reducing the federal budget deficit,” among other important priorities.
Nonetheless, Obama relentlessly attacks Mitt Romney’s prosperity, as if being a successful businessman – who takes financial risks and creates jobs – is an automatic disqualifier for anyone running for the nation’s highest office.
During the second presidential debate last week, Obama hammered Romney for his financial success and played the class-warfare card:
“I don’t look at my pension. It’s not as big as yours so it doesn’t take as long.” (In fact, Obama has a larger pension than Romney.)
Obama attacked Romney’s “$20 million a year” income. (Romney actually made $13.7 million in 2011 and gave nearly 30 percent of his income to charity.)
He also accused Romney of shielding the wealthy from paying “a little bit more” in taxes.
He stated, “I believe in self-reliance and individual initiative and risk-takers being rewarded. But I also believe that everybody should have a fair shot and everybody should do their fair share and everybody should play by the same rules, because that’s how our economy is grown.”
Obama claims to support free enterprise, self-reliance and individual initiative, but his actions say otherwise. He has forced on America a federal takeover of health care, increased oppressive regulation of private business, sustained massive government spending and expanded our nation’s welfare rolls by 32 percent since 2008. He even attacks corporations while accepting campaign funds from the same ventures he condemns. (Ironically, Obama has accepted nearly $120,000 from Bain Capital executives, is the top recipient of funds from BP oil, has investments in Chinese companies and through a Cayman Islands trust and staffed his own Cabinet with wealthy CEOs.)
In 2008, Obama famously told Joe the Plumber of his plans to confiscate money from small businesses: “[I]t’s not that I want to punish your success – I just want to make sure that everybody who is behind you – that they’ve got a chance at success too. … I think when you spread the wealth around, it’s good for everybody.”
In 2010, he arrogantly remarked, “I think at some point you have made enough money.”
In July, Obama attacked business again, saying, “If you’ve got a business, you didn’t build that. Somebody else made that happen.” (As I explained in an earlier column, that “somebody” to whom Obama referred was, in fact, the U.S. federal government.)
Meanwhile, Obama likes to say his tax increases will only affect “millionaires” and “billionaires,” but the actual hikes will hit couples with incomes of $250,000 and higher.
The president claims to be raising taxes on the rich, but he’s raising taxes on many of our nation’s job producers and using his class-warfare rhetoric to fool voters.
What do business-savvy employers do when burdened by crushing tax hikes? They look for options to reduce their taxable income.
Facing the increased cost burden of Obamacare, businesses are already looking for ways to avoid dealing with the soaring costs associated with the president’s health-care takeover – including potential layoffs and slashing employee hours from full time to part time.
Obamacare is the very definition of a class-warfare ploy because it drains the lifeblood from America’s producers to subsidize the uninsured. While “free” insurance may sound like a good idea in theory, increasing the burden on companies will force them to cut employees and their benefits to stay in business.
When businesses shed employees, revenue collected by federal and state governments as payroll taxes declines as well. That’s a lose-lose situation for our nation. The best way to get Americans back to work is to grow our economy and reduce tax burdens on our nation’s job creators.
When it comes to raising taxes and increasing regulations, there’s no limit to what Washington will impose. Where does it end?
What exactly does Obama consider “fair”?
Obama wants you to believe big government is good, profit is evil and “spreading the wealth” will improve the lives of everyone in America.
He wants you to believe he will help the middle class by promoting job creation and boosting the economy – but he has failed to do so in the last four years. And now he’s desperate.
Americans are tired of being pitted against one another by this administration.What they really want is jobs, a robust economy and a true leader who won’t resort to class warfare in an effort to distract voters and divide our great nation.

The 53 protesters, which also reportedly included a member of the group’s executive, were arrested on motorways on the outskirts of the capital.
Dozens of officers in riot vans intervened before the members of the far right group reached the capital on Saturday afternoon for the surprise protest outside a mosque in Whitechapel, east London.
Scotland Yard said they were held following an “an intelligence-led, pre-event investigation into a planned disturbance in east London on the same day”.
