Judge Anna von Reitz
The Clearfield Doctrine (which Larry probably can’t find, either) arises from a 1943 Supreme Court Case, Clearfield Trust Co. v. United States, 318 US 363-371.
The essence of the case is that when an incorporated government uses private bank script as its currency it sinks to the level of any other incorporated entity, loses its sovereign status (if it ever had any) and becomes subject to the same laws as any other corporation.
You can look up the actual case to your heart’s delight, but it is also reprised in CJS, as I was kindly reminded tonight by a friend:
Corpus Juris Secundum (CJS) 91 CJS United States sec. 4
“…..when the United States enters into commercial business it abandons its sovereign capacity and is to be treated like any other corporation.”
Now, if you have followed along you know that the British Territorial United States was never sovereign with respect to us. It was merely a contractor providing us with specific governmental services and acting under our delegated power to do so. All “federal” powers were delegated to them and all federal powers are limited to the international jurisdiction of the sea.
So the Territorial United States was never sovereign on our shores and by operating as an incorporated entity, it suffered no loss of sovereignty it never had, nor did it affect the sovereign status of our lawful government by its actions.
It did, however, reap the wrath of the court for its self-serving semantic deceits and corrupt attempts to exercise the coercive powers of our government for its own business advantage and enrichment.
Just like BLM and the Territorial United States franchise doing business as the “State of Nevada” and the Municipal United States franchise doing business as the STATE OF NEVADA.
All these agencies and entities play upon our ignorance and let us assume that they are “government” entities, when in fact, they are commercial corporations in the business of providing governmental services — no different than Burger King, International.
The Clearfield Doctrine strips these pretenders of their “government” cloak and when they attempt to use the abusive powers of government to enrich themselves, it’s time to remind them of exactly who and what they are.
This can be used against them in any number of contexts.
They claim to have a commercial interest in your marriage and children? Prove it.
They claim to have a commercial interest in your home and land? Prove it.
They claim to have a commercial interest in your estate? Prove it.
They have a right to tax you for anything? Income? Property? Prove it.
They’re not the government and they don’t have any special government powers when they are operating as commercial corporations. Instead, they are subject to all the same regulations and limitations as any other corporation — including the requirement that they operate lawfully — not “legally”, lawfully.
If you are standing on the land and soil jurisdiction of this country neither they nor their courts have any excuse for even addressing you, and if you are operating as a private American “vessel” conducting international trade and not allowing yourself to be misrepresented as a federal franchise PERSON, they are obligated to protect you and dismiss any action against you.
Use the Clearfield Doctrine to expose their feet of clay and then stomp on them, assuming that you have completed your own due diligence and re-conveyed your Trade Name and Assumed NAMES to their permanent domicile on the land and soil jurisdiction of this country, they have no right to trespass upon you or presume the existence of any contract with you.
Use the Clearfield Doctrine and object the moment any of these jokers contact you. Remember that a “Summons” from a court of foreign jurisdiction is a solicitation for business that you can object to and deny with the same impunity that you would reject a proposal to sell you twenty tons of cheap pizza.
