Judge Anna von Reitz
There is nothing difficult to understand about our situation. Cats and dogs can inhabit the same house, though they are of distinctly different nations:
Please note the definition of “Nation” from Black’s Law Dictionary, 6th Edition, and especially note the little “exception” —– “generally, but not necessarily, living under the same government and sovereignty”:
“A people, or aggregation of men, existing in the form of an organized jural society, inhabiting a distinct portion of the earth, speaking the same language, using the same customs, possessing historic continuity, and distinguished from other like groups by their racial origin and characteristics, and generally, but not necessarily, living under the same government and sovereignty. See Montoya v. U. S., 180 U. S. 201, 21 Sup. Ct 358, 45 L. Ed. 521; Worcester v. Georgia, 6 Pet. 539, 8 L. Ed. 483; Republic of Honduras v. Soto, 112 N. Y. 310, 19 N. E. 845, 2 L. R. A. 042, 8 Am. St. Rep. 744. Besides the element of autonomy or self-government, that is, the independence of the community as a whole from the interference of any foreign power in its affairs or any subjection to such power, it is further necessary to the constitution of a nation that it should be an organized jural society, that is, both governing its own members by regular laws, and defining and protecting their rights, and respecting the rights and duties which attach to it as a constituent member of the family of nations. Such a society, says Vattel, has her affairs and her interests; she deliberates and takes resolutions in common; thus becoming a moral person, who possesses an understanding and will peculiar to herself, and is susceptible of obligations and rights. Vattel.”
So, America, at first blush, doesn’t seem to pass the test to be a nation as we are not united by any single similar racial origin or characteristics, though we are united by a well-stated and well-defined moral imperative and Will asserting the existence and the value of universally held “natural and unalienable rights” belonging to Mankind as a whole, and we do live together in geographically defined areas enabling us to establish a “national identity” as, for example, Floridians or Texans.
Thus, unlike other nations who declare their nationality based on unique racial and ethnic characteristics, in America, our “nationhood” depends on shared ideals and where we live— on our values and the geographic location where we make our permanent home, instead of our blood and religion and ethnic heritage.
Like proverbial cats and dogs and guinea pigs, our country has been co-inhabited by approximately 248 Native American Nations, by British Territorial Citizens and by American State Nationals, all sharing the same geographic space since the beginning.
The Definitive Treaty of Peace, Paris, 1783, describes the American State Nationals as “the free, sovereign and independent people of the United States” and then also refers to the “Inhabitants” — the British Territorial Citizens who remained on our shores after the Revolution to provide, as the Constitutions later put it, “essential government services”.
These are people from separate nations co-inhabiting the same geographic space, one group that is permanently at home here and supposed to be self-governing, and the other group that is “residing” here on a purportedly temporary basis to provide us with essential government services, all of whom are subject to the Queen.
And then you have all the Native Nations.
So….248 Native Nations…..50 States…..1 Territorial Democracy with 50 State of State franchises….1 Municipal Oligarchy with 50 (totally unauthorized) STATE OF STATE franchises….. if this was a bowl of jelly beans there would be at least 400 different colored jelly beans representing different “nations” co-inhabiting our space.
And it gets crazier still, as at least one totally foreign country, Morocco, has –by treaty– preserved the right of any American to declare himself a “Moor” instead.
You would think that some enterprising History or Social Studies or Civics teacher along the way would have bothered to explain this complex reality we live with every day, but no.
I think of this Melting Pot as a wonderful stew combining all the strengths and beauties and resources and traditions of all the world’s cultures in a unique way. I think our complete and utter lack of homogeneity is our silver lining, the thing that buffers us, come what may.
I think of the Navajo Code-Talkers in World War II. I think of our Japanese-American troops fighting in Europe for the country they loved, despite being shamefully mistreated at home. I think of being able to touch down in almost any city in America and savor the cuisines and traditions of the whole world.
It’s unique and I love it, and I don’t mind that we are all a “bunch of mutts”, because it makes us stronger and more adaptable, more multi-faceted, more aligned, and more engaged. It brings us closer to everyone else, even if we never step foot outside of Buffalo, New York.
So here’s to the 400 nations (give or take a few) and the 50 States and the one country that we all live in and which despite everything, we love.
And now you are in a better position to understand what has happened.
We have been misidentified as “U.S. Citizens” — that is, as British Subjects, merely “residing” here on a temporary basis. Various records have been falsified to that effect, and unless and until we object and take exception to that, that is the political status “presumed and conferred” upon us.
Why? Because the British Monarchs acting in Breach of Trust and various corrupt American politicians, most especially Franklin Delano Roosevelt, have contrived to pull a fast one and press-gang us into the service of the British Empire for the duration of a war that ended in 1945.
Once these legal presumptions were in place they just stayed in place and the British Monarchs in control of the British Territorial United States and the Popes in charge of the Municipal United States continued to ride us like horses in the name of only God knows what besides criminality and greed.
They have stolen-embezzled-transferred trillions of dollars worth of American labor, natural resources, and commodities that they can’t repay, and more importantly, they have cost millions of innocent lives in endless wars for profit and mercenary conflicts like the so-called Civil War and the “Vietnam Conflict” and “the Cold War”.
They have done this in Gross Breach of Trust via the unauthorized and unreasonable creation of public trusts that they have plundered under color of law.
So, if you don’t care for this to continue and don’t wish to be treated as a slave of the Queen in your own country, then it is high time that you woke up, smelled the java, looked around, and realized that what I am telling you is true —and that you need to set the record straight about your political status as an American State National and re-claim your own good name and estate and get involved in restoring and participating in your own jural assembly.
