Property Rights and the Constitution
America’s Founders understood clearly that private property is the foundation, not only of prosperity but of freedom itself. Thus, through the common law, state law, and the Constitution they protected property rights— the rights of people to freely acquire, use, and dispose of property.
With the growth of modern government, however, those rights have been seriously compromised. Unfortunately, the Supreme Court has yet to develop a principled, much less comprehensive, theory for remedying those violations.
The problem is “We the People” under this de facto U.S. Corporation that has taken over our government and also our local state, and municipal governments as well, over these last 140 years, in lieu of the fact that our Constitutional Republic, which is the ONLY de jure (lawful) government that we have, has only been moth balled, so to speak, (pursuant to the passage of the Act of 1871), and since there has never been a constitutional amendment to lawfully change our de jure government from a Constitutional Republic, into a U.S. Corporation, then we still have the law on our side; and therefore we can still use the law, even in their courts, and reclaim our Constitutional Rights and re-implement our lawful property rights, as a free people.
As it stands now, for the most part, there is no real justice any more in the de facto courts, but that tide is changing, and thank God for that; because the American people are slowly but surely waking up to the fact that this de facto corporate entity, called the UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, INC, has no lawful standing under our U.S. Constitution, which still is the highest law of our land!
The fact is, this de facto D.C. Corporation has, over these last 140 years, been eroding so many of our Constitutional Rights, and have instead made them privileges which they can take away from us under their corporate code enforcement structure. I thank God that that tide is slowly changing, as We the People are learning the truth.
You need to understand that under this de facto system, even though you may have a mortgage in your name, and are making payments on time every month, or even if you already own your property outright and have the deed in your name, the fact is you still don’t own your property.
You in fact are leasing it from the de facto, and they can at anytime come in and take it from you through any number of procedures, as many of you can well testify to, because you’ve already had this happen to you.
Below is an announcement regarding an upcoming seminar on Land Patents.
Some of you may be aware of this subject, but I dare say that most are not; however, if you would like to find out how you can truly own the property that you are living on, and at the same time un-entangle yourself from obtrusive and draconian laws and code enforcements that minimize your individual property rights, and do so legally by due process, even in the de facto’s own court system, then you might want to attend this seminar.
“I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies. If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation, then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around [the banks] will deprive the people of all property until their children wake-up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered. The issuing power should be taken from the banks and restored to the people, to whom it properly belongs.”
3rd president of US (1743 – 1826)
Coming this December 1st and 2nd, HISAvocates.org will be hosting a two day seminar that will show you how to acquire a LAND PATENT on your property.
This seminar will be taught by Robert Schaefer, who is one of the few people who have actually been successful in implementing Land Patents on his own property.
In this seminar Mr. Schaefer will show you how he did it and will be teaching on his lawful land patent process that he has successfully used on his own private property, in San Bernardino County.
Mr. Schaefer has over 30 years of land patent study and experience.
Over the course of this time, he has had multiple positive encounters with code enforcement officials, including both the City and County of San Bernardino, where he owns his property.
Mr. Schaefer’s land patent process has held up in court, even through the appellate process; and he has, over the course of this thirty year period, had years of first hand courtroom experience.
In this seminar Mr. Schaefer will be teaching you, based on his own personal experience, the process that he followed in order to lawfully procure Land Patent protections for his property.
Doesn’t it make sense, that if you are going to take a lesson from someone on this subject of Land Patents, why not take it from one who has a track record and has been successful?
I would also add that no one has ever gotten into trouble following Mr. Schaefer’s procedures, which he will outline in detail for you.
There are of course other systems out there, but so many of these systems have not been successful; and many are considered by the de facto courts to both self-serving and unlawful; and therefore they have in many cases been sanctioned and penalized by the courts. .
In addition to the seminar, you will also be provided with two pages of case law that will show you the long established legal precedents that Mr. Schaefer has successfully used in the de facto court system, in order to have his Land Patents granted.
Mr. Schaefer has in the past taught on this subject, and his fee has normally been set at $3,500.00, in order to personally teach you the ropes, one on one, in how to implement a Land Patent on your own land.
If you just wanted to purchase his Do it Yourself abbreviated Land Patent Package, he would charge you $1,000.00; but this was offered WITHOUT benefit of a seminar format.
We are pleased to announce that for the first time, Mr. Schaefer has teamed up with HISAdvocates.org in order to make this education available to the general public in a seminar format, which will instruct you in his proven method of establishing a Land Patent on your property; and he will be doing so at a much more affordable price.
You may also like to know that Land Patents have held up in the U.S. Supreme Court 29 times out of 29 cases.
Land Patents also represent the highest form of Allodial Title, which is the ownership of real property (including land, buildings and fixtures) that is independent of any superior landlord; and they will provide you with a FOREVER quit-claim transferred from such governmental allodial titles, directly from a state or federal government, to the private sector WITHOUT specifically “reserving,” (key word) any such allodial title to the states, or to their legislative, executive, OR JUDICIAL Departments or Branches.
The purpose and advantage of having a Land Patent on your property is that it is the highest form of title known in law; and it is superior to ANY other claimant, including any government agency who may be attempting to take your land by eminent domain; or a bank with a sheriff’s sale deed; a purchaser in a property tax sale, with a tax sale deed; or anyone else.
Possession of the Land Patent means you OWN the Land outright and absolutely!
We at HISAvocates.org are proud to use this seminar format, under our FIRST AMENDMENT rights, in order to pass this information along to you.
We believe that Mr. Schaefer’s knowledge and expertise is especially valuable at a time in America, where we find that 1 out of 9 homes today are going through foreclosure.
Mr. Schaefer insists that he is NOT at all anti-government, but only that he is against power hungry and corrupt officials, who have taken unto themselves powers and authority, which not only has not been delegated to them, but in many instances they are constitutionally unlawful.
He in fact teaches that there are many good people in government, who are sincerely working for the good of the people.
He also extents an open invitation to any officers, agents, and employees of any federal, state, county, perish, city, or town government, who would like to attend one of his seminars, as these people have ALWAYS been welcome at any of his talks, so they can learn firsthand his good-faith information, outside of the courtroom, which is information they might need to know before any trial is considered.
You will want to purchase a DVD of this seminar to play to your Trial BY Jury, if it is ever needed as your Exculpatory Evidence indicating your lack of “evil criminal intent” to violate a “constitutionally valid law” that relates to you and your private land use.
You will learn that Administrative-Laws only apply to those who work directly for the government AND to those with an Administrative-Law contract with a government agency, for the purpose of a governmentally created, regulatable and taxable “privilege.”
This seminar will also provide you with information that will protect you against getting involved with any form of governmental license, pass, permit, or franchise that you may have entered into knowingly, willingly, intentionally, and voluntarily; AND THEN only afterwards are provided with Full Disclosure, as to what all the obligations, duties, and responsibilities are, which are associated with such a governmentally related privilege.
You will also learn how to cancel all governmental implied contracts, adhesion contracts, and documents in the nature of a contract – nunc pro tunc (now for

THE BUTTERFLY ALPHABET
Packed away in a corner of the attic in the Smithsonian Institution National Museum of Natural History was an old Havana cigar box full of exotic
butterflies and moths, one with a sparkling silvery letter “F” awaiting its future rendezvous with destiny.
That day came in the spring of 1960 when a young visitor Kjell (“shell”) Sandved, arrived at the Smithsonian to conduct research for an encyclopedia on animal behavior.
The director of the museum provided Kjell with an office, and introduced him to his neighbor, Barbara Bedette, who became his collaborator, best friend, and finally the love of his life.
One day, balancing high on a ladder surrounded by drawers and boxes full of butterflies and moths, Kjell found the old cigar box. And there was the sparkling letter “F” woven into the tapestry of the wing.
“We looked at this miniature design under the microscope,” Barbara recalled, “and marveled at the beauty of this letter. It reminded us of how ancient scribes lovingly embellished colorful letters in Bibles and illuminated manuscripts with human and animal forms.”
Not even a calligrapher could have improved on the beauty of nature’s own “F;” and so Barbara wondered, “If Nature can create one such perfect letter, there must be others flying around out there. Let’s go out and find more.”
The day they found the letter was the day their lives were changed. Optimists, they decided to travel worldwide to find all the letters from the wings of butterflies and moths.
There were problems — Barbara knew nothing about butterflies, and Kjell knew nothing about photography.
Born in Conneaut, Ohio, Barbara was a geology graduate student of Bowling Green State University and moved to the Smithsonian Museum of Natural History in 1954 where she specialized in evolution of seashells.
Her intellectual capacity and soft-spoken nature soon brought her numerous Peer Recognition and close cooperation with Smithsonian legendary scientists such as Harry S. Ladd, on his “Mohole Project” with ongoing research on how Pacific coral reefs are created, and with Wendell Woodring with species migration during separation of the North and South American continents.
Kjell was a Norwegian publisher of two comprehensive encyclopedias: “The World of Music,” translated into ten languages, and “The World of Art.
First Kjell had to teach himself basic photography. For two years he studied to solve problems in macro photography.
Examining thousands of museum specimens under the microscope, Barbara and Kjell soon realized that faded museum butterflies were unusable.
When touched by human hands of collectors, the fine powdery scale formations on butterfly wings are easily destroyed. They would have to be photographed in nature without killing them.
Kjell designed, jerry-rigged and glued together a portable “bellow” microscope with German Zeiss Luminar and Leitz Summicron microscope lenses that were adapted for extreme close-up photography with double strobe slave units.
After yearlong intensive research Barbara had pinned down countries where various families, genera and species of butterflies and micro Lepidoptera were likely to be found.
They were ready to travel to research stations and rainforests all over the world.
Traveling to botanical gardens, nature reserves and rainforests from the Amazon to New Guinea, they survived malaria-infested jungles, leeches and ants while photographing letters and numbers on the wings of exquisite butterflies and moths without killing any.
A surprising discovery was that the wing patterns of their night-flying cousins, tropical moths, yielded just as many attractive letters and numbers as did those of butterflies.
EASY AND DIFFICULT LETTERS TO FIND
Of all the design elements in nature, the symmetrical “O”- the circle, the zero, the eye — is the most common.
Large eyespots on the wings of butterflies scare or deter enemies. Rows of smaller eyespots along less vulnerable areas invite pecking away from the vulnerable body.
Symmetrical letters like “C,” “D,” “F,” “I” and “L,” are relatively easy to find.
However, asymmetrical letters, particularly “B,” “H,” “K,” “Q,” “T” and “X,” were more difficult.
Only one rare ampersand (&) was found.
By 1975 Barbara and Kjell had found enough letters in the wings of butterflies so that the Secretary of the Smithsonian, Dillon Ripley decided to reveal their discovery as a poster in his new Smithsonian Magazine using five masterly crafted central words from the American poet Theodore Roethke’s “The Far Field”:
ALL FINITE THINGS REVEAL INFINITUDE
The mystery of our life’s wanderings from beginning to end, from the smallest to the largest, seconds in geological time.
To reproduce the line above required innumerable experiments over eons of time. For each letter has been etched into the wing of a moth or a butterfly through a never-ending series of trials and errors known as natural selection.
No one knew the letters could be found there in the wings until Barbara Bedette and Kjell Sandved of the Smithsonian’s perceived them. Imagine then what else there is to be seen in the wings of a butterfly or moth, or the water above a sunken tree, or in the memory of a single person.
DILLON RIPLEY, SECRETARY, SMITHSONIAN INSTITUTION
With a readership of over 5 million, the publicity of the Smithsonian poster and subsequent Butterfly Alphabets promoted a new U.S. phenomenon: butterfly gardening and rearing of butterflies in our school systems.
It was truly Barbara who put on the magic glasses that revealed nature’s hidden designs to become the architect and designer of both the Butterfly- and Nature alphabets, joining the two in the spirit of Smithson’s mandate to “Create an institution for the increase and diffusion of knowledge among men.” We can all take delight in finding letters and numbers, symbols and signs in nature. Take your child by the hand into a field of flowers on a summer’s day, but bring a magnifying glass. Look, and then look more closely. Miniature marvels are there for all to see.
The Lion and the Lamb shall lie down together!
African Lion Kisses, Hugs Woman Who Saved It
Ana Julia Torres, who runs the Villa Lorena animal shelter in Cali, fed and nursed Jupiter the African lion back to health years ago after it was found abused and emaciated in a traveling circus.
“It is amazing to see an animal like that be so sweet and affectionate,” said Torres. “This hug is the most sincere one that I have received in my life.”
Torres, 47, said her work rehabilitating animals began more than a decade ago when a friend gave her an owl that had been kept as a pet.
Later, when she asked her students to bring their pets to school, she realized many families illegally kept wild fauna from Colombia’s biologically diverse jungles in their homes.
The number of animals under her care grew, and now Jupiter is among 800 recovering creatures at Villa Lorena, where Torres looks after, among others, burned peacocks, limbless flamengos, blind monkeys and mutilated elephants.
Most of the animals are caged, though some, like iguanas, roam freely around the grounds of the shelter, which are enclosed by a 13-foot wall.
Torres said she relies on donations and her modest teacher’s salary to run the shelter.
“We dedicate our lives to the care of these animals without one single peso from the state,” Torres said.
Torres said many of the animals were rejected as infants by their parents in the wild or found abandoned on the streets of Cali.
Torres said because she opposes exhibiting animals in circuses, she decided to keep her shelter closed from the public.

|Laminin is a protein that is part of the extracellular matrix in humans and animals.
The extracellular matrix (ECM) lies outside of cells and provides support and attachment for cells inside organs (along with many other functions).
Laminin has “arms” that associate with other laminin molecules to form sheets and bind to cells.
Laminin and other ECM proteins essentially “glue” the cells (such as those lining the stomach and intestines) to a foundation of connective tissue.
This keeps the cells in place and allows them to function properly. The structure of laminin is very important for its function (as is true for all proteins).

|The Story of Navy Petty Officer PO2 Mike Monsoor, 28
by The Publisher 3/30/10
The Sailor Pictured below is Navy Petty Officer PO2 (Petty Officer, Second Class) EOD2 (Explosive Ordnance Disposal, Second Class) “MIKE MONSOOR”
April 5th, 1981 ~ September 29th, 2009
Mike Monsoor was awarded “The Congressional Medal Of Honor” last week, for giving his life in Iraq, as he jumped on, and covered with his body, a live hand grenade, saving the lives of a large group of Navy Seals that was passing by!
During Mike Monsoor’s Funeral at Ft. Rosecrans National Cemetery in San Diego , California, the six pallbearers removed the rosewood casket from the hearse, and lined up on each side of Mike Monsoor’s casket, were his family members, friends, fellow sailors, and well-wishers. The column of people continued from the hearse, all the way to the grave site.
What the group didn’t know at the time was that every Navy Seal (45 To Be Exact) that Mike Monsoor saved that day was scattered through-out the column! As the pallbearers carried the rosewood casket down the column of people to the grave side, the column would collapse, formeing a group of people that followed behind. Every time the rosewood casket passed a Navy Seal, he would remove his Gold Trident Pin from his uniform and slap it down hard, causing the Gold Trident Pin to embed itself into the top of the wooden casket! Then the Navy Seal would step back from the column and salute!
Now for those who don’t know what a Trident Pin is, here is the definition:
After one completes the basic Navy Seals Program which lasts for three weeks, and is followed by Seal Qualification Training, which is 15 more weeks of training necessary to continue improving basic skills and to learn new tactics and techniques, required for an assignment to a Navy Seal platoon. After successful completion, trainees are given their naval enlisted code, and are awarded The Navy Seal Trident Pin.
With this gold pin they are now officially Navy Seals!
It was said that you could hear each of the 45 slaps from across the cemetery! By the time the rosewood casket reached the grave site, it looked as though it had a gold inlay from the 45 Trident Pins that lined the top.
I have posted a blog about Michael Monsoor before on a previous blog, but after having received a forwarded email request from a retired Admiral friend, who is also a former Navy Seal, to recirculate and remind the American people of this American Hero, and his sacrifice for our country, I’ve decided to do another posting.
As Americans we are proud of ALL our men and women in uniform, regardless of which branch of service they serve in.
This young man happened to be a Navy Seal; but every branch has its heroes; and their sacrifices should NEVER be forgotten!
You would think a story like this would have made front page news all across America, but it was virtually ignored!
So since the major News Media ignored this story, why don’t we correct that mistake and pass this information along to all our friends, and by doing so let’s spread the word to all those in our country, who have obviously forgotten… that FREEDOM is not free!!!
Let’s also remind America of the very real danger that our country faces today, that threatens our very sovereignty and our freedom as a nation!
The fact is the very thing these brave men and woman in uniform have given their lives so unselfishly to preserve, our Congress over the years, and many of our presidents, have sought to undermine and destroy; and that is our U.S. Constitution and our national sovereignty.
Why else would a government act so irresponsible as ours has over the years; and especially of late, with these 100’s of billions of dollars that have been spent, over the objections of the American people, on stimulus packages and “fat cat” bailout money?
We are today facing the worst crisis our nation has ever faced, since our War of Independence against Mother England
Ever since that time these International Bankers, represented by the Rothschild International Banking Cartel, have sought to gain control over us, and to enslave us; and over the years, despite all the many warnings from our founding fathers, they have succeeded.
This downward spiral that we find ourselves in today has over the years slowly been eroding and diminishing our Constitutional liberties; until today our nation is in serious danger of collapsing both morally and economically, after which our liberty and our U.S. Constitution would be stripped from us forever, in favor of a “New World Order!” Make no mistake, but that is the plan, if certain people in our government today are allowed to have their way.
What we see happening today in our country is the result of a long and continuous stream of irresponsible abuses and malfeasants on the part of our elected officials in Washington DC, that today has ballooned our national debt to over 13.4 Trillion Dollars; and at the same time has reduced the value our U.S. Dollar to less than 4 cents on the dollar, worth of buying power (as of 2005 and certainly it is less today); as compared to its 1913 value of 100 cents on the dollar.
The Rothschilds :
“The few who understand the system, will either be so interested from it’s profits or so dependent upon its favors, that there will be no opposition from that class.” — Rothschild Brothers of London, 1863
“Give me control of a nation’s money and I care not who makes it’s laws” — Mayer Amschel Bauer Rothschild
Do you want to know why our economy is in the shape it is in today; and why you have to struggle from pay check to pay check just to make ends meet? Well you are looking at the answer above.
If you will remember it was in 1913 that the Federal Reserve Act was rushed through to passage, and was signed into law over the Christmas holidays, after most of Congress had already dismissed and had gone home for the holidays; and these is when these private international bankers assumed legal and permanent control over our entire banking system and our monetary policies; the results of which you can see in the graph above.
These concessions that were made by our politicians, have made all American Citizens the collateral for this bankruptcy loan, that was to bail our nation out of a bankruptcy that came about as a result of the Civil War; a bankruptcy that began in 1863, and has continued ever since, that has had to renewed every 70 years since.
In fact all Corporate bankruptcies have to renewed every 70 years, and so here’s the history:
President Lincoln had funded the war entirely by issuing war bonds, T-Bills, etc, which essentially put the United States government into bankruptcy in 1863.
One of the funding schemes used was the so called 1040 Bonds. These bonds were to run not less than 10 years, and no more than 40 years at 7.13% interest.
To collect the interest on these 1040 Bonds, a form 1040 was used by the government. By 1864, the value of these bonds had dropped to 39 cents on the dollar.
In 1861, to collect the interest on those 1040 bonds, Congress created the Bureau of Internal Revenue. Do you think that was just a coincidence? Do you think that maybe the interest was never paid and we are still using the form today to collect? Go figure!
To handle this bankruptcy, the Comptroller of the Treasury was created in 1863.
What does a Comptroller do? He is charged with certain duties in relation to the fiscal affairs of the government, primarily to examine and audit the accounts of collectors of the public money, to keep records and report the financial situation from time to time. But the term we are concerned with is “Comptroller in Bankruptcy”.
BOUVIER’S LAW DICTIONARY 1914.
Comptroller in Bankruptcy – An officer . . . whose duty it is to receive from the trustee in each bankruptcy his accounts and periodical statements showing the proceedings in the bankruptcy, and also to call the trustee to account for any misfeasance, neglect, or omission in the discharge of his duties.
So if the government is bankrupt, who is the trustee? This is answered for us by Congressional Record March 17, 1993. P.H1303. The following is from that record:
Mr. TRAFFICANT asked and was given permission to revise and expand his remarks.
Mr. TRAFFICANT. Mr. Speaker, we are here now in chapter 11. Members of Congress are official trustees presiding over the greatest reorganization of any bankrupt entity in world history, the U.S. government.
The United States government is in bankruptcy and Congress are the trustees. It is a legal maxim that a bankrupt is ‘civilly dead’. That means that Congress cannot legally make positive law in bankruptcy, because they have no legal standing. The federal government has been in Chapter 11 bankruptcy from 1863 to today, and sits at the pleasure of the Commander in Chief, waiting to do his bidding.
14th Amendment 1868. The 14th Amendment was passed while under military rule, and therefore did not need to be properly ratified by the states, because the states were now under the federal government, under martial law, and the states changed their constitutions to reflect that change in order to be readmitted to the union. By the way, that is also why the 16th Amendment for income tax did not need to be properly ratified, since it too was passed by a Congress exercising their military powers. The 14th Amendment applied to ‘citizens’. “Every person born or naturalized in the United States and subject to it’s jurisdiction is a citizen.”
DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA created 1871. Congress was reconvened under military order in 1861. This status did not change, and in 1871, ten years later, a new federal government was created by incorporation of the District of Columbia. This new corporation was called “United States”. The old Congress ceased to exist in 1861 and the new Congress was reconvened under military rule, which created Washington D.C. in 1871. Even today Congress does not sit by Constitutional positive law, but by mere resolution, which is merely advisory, not compulsory. Resolutions only apply to those who make them, like New Year’s Resolutions. That is why the House and Senate are continually making resolutions. They merely indicate what public policy may be, but they carry no force of law with them, except on themselves and their property. This is the key to military government. Unless government is permanently established by those who have law, there is no state of peace. Therefore we are still under military law.
EMERGENCY BANKING ACT March 9, 1933 – President Roosevelt called for a special and extraordinary session of Congress in Proclamation 2038. At that session he presented a bill, an Act, to provide for relief in the existing national ’emergency’ in banking and for other purposes.
In this Act of March 9, 1933, it states in Title 1 Section 1:
“The actions, regulations, rules, licenses, orders and proclamations heretofore or hereafter taken, promulgated, made, or issued by the President of the United States or the Secretary of the Treasury since March the 4th, 1933, pursuant to the authority conferred by subdivision (b) of Section 5 of the Act of October 6, 1917, as amended, are hereby approved and confirmed.”
This says that any actions, orders or proclamations, made by the President hereafter taken, are hereby approved and confirmed. Congress just wrote a blank check to the President. ANYTHING he wants to do is approved, IN ADVANCE! Do you think we are living under a dictatorship! Is that how the President is acting today, as if everything he does is already approved? It seems so.
If you went to a law library today and looked up 12 USC (United States Code) Section 95(b), you will find this Act still on the books today!
But, if you will remember, the Act of 1917 applied to enemies “other than citizens of the United States.” So in 1917 the war powers did not extend to citizens of the United States, and the government did not have authority over us and the Constitution was still valid and upheld. But Roosevelt made an amendment to the 1917 Act, in 1933. In Section 2 of the Act of March 9, 1933 it states:
“Subdivision (b) of Section 5 of the Act of October 6, 1917 (40 Stat. L. 411), as amended, is hereby amended as follows;
During time of war or during any other time of national emergency declared by the President, the President may, through any agency that he may designate, or otherwise, investigate, regulate, or prohibit, under such rules and regulations as he may prescribe, by means of licenses or otherwise, any transactions in foreign exchange, transfers of credit between or payments by banking institutions as defined by the President and export, hording, melting, or earmarkings of gold or silver coin or bullion or currency, by any person within the United States or anyplace subject to the jurisdiction thereof.“
By simply including in this amendment “any person within the United States or anyplace subject to the jurisdiction thereof”, citizens of the United States were now included in the definition of ‘enemies of the United States’! As far as any commercial, monetary or business transactions were concerned, United States citizens were no longer any different from any other enemy of the United States.
In 1917, due to World War I, Congress passed the Trading With the Enemy Act, and defined the enemy as “other than citizens of the United States”. This Act allowed the government to take control of any and all commercial, monetary or business transactions conducted by enemies within our continental borders. Section 5(b) of this Act gave the President unlimited powers to control the commercial transactions of the defined enemies.
During the Korean War, there was much publicity over the fact that Congress never declared war and charges were flung back and forth that the war was illegal. The same thing took place in the Viet Nam war and elsewhere. Today the President is still engaging our forces in foreign countries without the consent of Congress. These acts of the President are 100% legal, because as Commander-in-Chief he still has his emergency powers and he does not need the approval of Congress to engage in war. Congress only makes ‘public policy’ as trustees of the bankruptcy.
The Social Security Act
(1935) – Did you know that as a United States citizen, under the rules of the UNITED STATES CORPORATION, you have the status of an ‘artificial person’. That’s why your name is always spelled on all government documents in all capital letters.
And when you contract to be a U.S. citizen (property of the U.S. government), via social security, you are basically co-signing for the debts of the federal government; and you are therefore pledging all your income and assets to helping discharge the bankruptcy!
Did you hear about the Grace Commission Report?
The Grace Commission was an investigation requested by former United States President Ronald Reagan, in 1982. The focus of the report was on waste and inefficiency in the US Federal government.
The Grace Commission Report was presented to Congress in January 1984.
The report claimed that if its recommendations were followed, $424 billion could be saved in three years, rising to $1.9 trillion per year by the year 2000.
It estimated that the national debt, without these reforms, would rise to $13 trillion by the year 2000, while with the reforms they projected it would rise to only $2.5 trillion. Congress ignored the commission’s report; and the debt reached $5.8 trillion in the year 2000. The national debt reached 13 trillion after the subprime mortgage crisis in 2008.
The report also said that one-third of all income taxes is consumed by waste and inefficiency in the federal government, and another one-third escapes collection owing to the underground economy.
The report went on to day that: “With two thirds of everyone’s personal income taxes wasted or not collected, 100 percent of what is collected is absorbed solely by interest on the federal debt and by federal government contributions to transfer payments.
In other words, all individual income tax revenues are gone before one nickel is spent on the services [that] taxpayers expect from their government.”
This report tells us that 100% of all that is collected by the Internal Revenue Service goes into the pockets of the International Banking Cartel, as pure profit for them. I bet you no one ever told you any of this in school; and not has it been reported on the evening newsl!!!
Also it was in 1933 that FDR confiscated all private ownership of Gold in the United States, and that gold was also used as collateral for our bankruptcy loan, that I am quite sure that these same International Banking Interests have since stolen this gold from our country; and by the way, 70% of the board of directors, who are on the Board of this privately held corporation, and are making decisions for us, without any accountability whatsoever, except to themselves, are in fact foreign nationals.
Also did you also know that not once since the Federal Reserve Act was passed (in 1913) has the FED ever been audited? Gee, I wonder why?
Subsequent to the attack of 9/11, under the War Powers Act, and the fact that our President can sign into law through Executive Orders, without Congressional Approval, anything he wants, it was President George W. Bush who stripped us of many of our Constitutional rights, illegally I might add, because all of this is in violation of our organic U.S. Constitution.
Since then with the economic collapse of 2008, where we saw all these 100’s of Billions of dollars that have gone to bail out the Bankers and Corporate business interest, and by the way much of this money is unaccounted for; and to date, none of it has yet to help improve, nor to stimulate our economy.
The reason is because it has gone into the pockets of these International Bankers, and probably some of it has gone for bribes and pay offs, to buy votes; and the rest will be loaned bank to the American people (our money mind you) at interest.
(For more on this look at: http://usa-the-republic.com/revenue/true_history/Chap8.html)
Our country today is being run by some very corrupt and dishonest people, whose objective it is to force us, once our economy finally collapses and we cannot buy and sell anymore, into a “New World Order,” which we who are Christians know in the Bible will become a One World Government, and monetary system, that will ultimately be run by the Antichrist.
These are the times in which we are living in toay; and what I have just described to you as our history, are what our elected officials, these criminals in DC, have done to us; and they are now setting us up for our final fall; while still most of our country is completely ignorant and is fast asleep.
Getting back to my original point, let us not allow the sacrifices of our American heroes to be in vain, owed to our unwillingness of “We the People” of these United States, to take a stand, and to take back our country; to restore our Constitutional Republic; and reestablish the rule of law in our land, which Law is ultimately our U.S. Constitution.
We need a total housecleaning in our government from the top down!!!
So Pray Christians, pray that America wakes up; that we as Christians and as a nation implement 2 Chronicles 7:14; and that God does a miracle and saves our nation; because nothing short of a miracle of God, at this point, will save us!!!
Corporal Desmond T. Doss
Medal of Honor Winner
(February 7, 1919–March 23, 2006)
The President of the United States
Desmond T. Doss
Place and date: Near Urasoe Mura, Okinawa, Ryukyu Islands, 29 April-21 May 1945.
Entered service at:
G.O. No.: 97, 1 November 1945.
As our troops gained the summit, a heavy concentration of artillery, mortar and machinegun fire crashed into them, inflicting approximately 75 casualties and driving the others back.
Pfc. Doss refused to seek cover and remained in the fire-swept area with the many stricken, carrying them 1 by 1 to the edge of the escarpment and there lowering them on a rope-supported litter down the face of a cliff to friendly hands.
On 2 May, he exposed himself to heavy rifle and mortar fire in rescuing a wounded man 200 yards forward of the lines on the same escarpment; and 2 days later he treated 4 men who had been cut down while assaulting a strongly defended cave, advancing through a shower of grenades to within 8 yards of enemy forces in a cave’s mouth, where he dressed his comrades’ wounds before making 4 separate trips under fire to evacuate them to safety.
On 5 May, he unhesitatingly braved enemy shelling and small arms fire to assist an artillery officer. He applied bandages, moved his patient to a spot that offered protection from small arms fire and, while artillery and mortar shells fell close by, painstakingly administered plasma.
Later that day, when an American was severely wounded by fire from a cave, Pfc. Doss crawled to him where he had fallen 25 feet from the enemy position, rendered aid, and carried him 100 yards to safety while continually exposed to enemy fire.
On 21 May, in a night attack on high ground near Shuri, he remained in exposed territory while the rest of his company took cover, fearlessly risking the chance that he would be mistaken for an infiltrating Japanese and giving aid to the injured until he was himself seriously wounded in the legs by the explosion of a grenade.
Rather than call another aid man from cover, he cared for his own injuries and waited 5 hours before litter bearers reached him and started carrying him to cover.
The trio was caught in an enemy tank attack and Pfc. Doss, seeing a more critically wounded man nearby, crawled off the litter; and directed the bearers to give their first attention to the other man. Awaiting the litter bearers’ return, he was again struck, this time suffering a compound fracture of 1 arm. With magnificent fortitude he bound a rifle stock to his shattered arm as a splint and then crawled 300 yards over rough terrain to the aid station.
Through his outstanding bravery and unflinching determination in the face of desperately dangerous conditions Pfc. Doss saved the lives of many soldiers. His name became a symbol throughout the 77th Infantry Division for outstanding gallantry far above and beyond the call of duty.
I just watch this documentary on Desmond Doss last night, and what an awesome testimony of courage that was inspired by this man’s faith in God. Corporal Doss was a medic during WW II, who because of his religious beliefs, as a Seventh Day Adventist, he wouldn’t carry a gun.
He went through such persecution and out and out hatred and prejudice from officers and fellow enlisted personal alike, and boy did he show them all.
Not only that, but one of his chief critics, an officer, whom I believe is Captain Glover, whose voice you hear in the second video clip; he actually tried to get Doss drummed out of the service, and didn’t even want him in to serve in his unit; and as God would have it, Pvt. Doss eventually ended up rescuing him and saving his life, while still under fire.
As you can read in the above citation, there was even one time when he was seriously wounded himself, and was waiting to be carried out on a stretcher; and seeing another soldier more seriously wounded than himself, he crawled over to him and began rendering first aid to him; and then he gave up his stretcher so that this other soldier could be taken out first.
In addition to his own wounds, he also had a broken arm; and so he proceeded to form a splint out of a rifle that was shot in half, and again while still under fire, he crawled out under his own effort, to safety.
This man was even known for retendering first aid to the enemy, when he ran across Japanese soldiers who had been wounded.
On a side note, the man whose voice you hear, doing the voice over in the first video clip, is a personal friend of mine, and also a brother in the Lord. His name is Casey Hayes; and this reminds me of a note I once saw posted on his refrigerator door, that was a quote from a John Wayne war move, which said: “All wars are filled with brave men who are scared, and would rather be somewhere else!”
I don’t think truer words where ever spoken; and therein lies a message for all of us, in that it is not the absence of fear that makes a hero; but rather it is how we react in the face of it. Selah
Wholesome Family Entertainment in the 50’s and 60’s verses today… and oh boy how it has changed!
Do you remember…
The Lone Ranger Series?
“A fiery horse with the speed of light, a cloud of dust and a hearty, ‘Hi Yo Silver!…It’s THE LONE RANGER. With his faithful Indian companion Tonto, the daring and resourceful masked rider of the plains led the fight for law and order in the early west. Return with us now to those thrilling days of yesteryear. The Lone Ranger rides again!”
These words were used to announce the arrival of America’s most best-loved character, the immortal The Lone Ranger and his trusted sidekick, Tonto. No other fictional creation has ever had the magic and mystique of Fran Striker’s creation… nor the staying power. The Lone Ranger is as beloved today as he was when he rode into hearts years ago.
To understand the whole Lone Ranger experience, you have to understand that by the time the Lone Ranger was twenty years old in 1953, he was being broadcast three times each week on 249 radio stations, he achieved the highest rating of any Western program ever, and he had a weekly listening audience of twelve million people. At that same twentieth anniversary, he was being broadcast on ninety television stations and was the highest rated western on TV, being seen by five million viewers. He also appeared in 177 daily papers, 119 Sunday papers and was being read by 71 million people in comic strip fashion. This is in addition to the many novels and series books that had also been written by this time. He was perhaps the first character that was truly a multi-media entity, having a very broad spectrum of appreciation, not to mention the toys and clothing that were being sold.
How about these for values that were written by the series creator:
The Lone Ranger’s Creed
By Fran Striker
1. I believe that to have a friend, a man must be one.
2. That all men are created equal and that everyone has within himself the power to make this a better world.
3. That God put the firewood there, but that every man must gather and light it himself.
4. In being prepared physically, mentally, and morally to fight when necessary for that which is right.
5. That a man should make the most of what equipment he has.
6. That “this government, of the people, by the people, and for the people,” shall live always.
7. That men should live by the rule of what is best for the greatest number.
8. That sooner or later… somewhere… somehow… we must settle with the world and make payment for what we have taken.
9. That all things change, but the truth, and the truth alone lives on forever.
10. I believe in my Creator, my country, my fellow man.
|Note about the author:
Fran Striker started as a freelance writer, creating and writing his own series and selling them to stations across the United States. He began a long association with station owner George W. Trendle and radio station WXYZ in Detroit, which was trying to make a name for itself as a producer of radio drama, creating and writing the early series Thrills of the Secret Service, Dr. Fang and Warner Lester, Manhunter (which introduced Mike Axford, later a supporting character on The Green Hornet).Late in 1932, Striker began working on The Lone Ranger; his earliest scripts were largely reworked from his earlier series, Covered Wagon Days. A letter from Trendle, dated Monday, January 30, 1933, clearly gives Striker credit for creating the character. However, by 1934, Striker was pressured by Trendle to sign over his rights to the Lone Ranger, and Trendle claimed credit as the creator. This sparked a long-term controversy over the creation of The Lone Ranger, extending as far as a 1960 television appearance by Striker on To Tell the Truth, which mentioned his role in the character’s creation.
My thanks goes out to John today, for forwarding this Long Ranger Creed to me.
I think if there is any one thing that is missing today in our society and our culture; it is something that is today considered “Old Fashion and Passé,” and that is in the lack of Christian values, as once was portrayed in our media.
It used to be there was always a clear line that was being drawn between what was right and wrong, and good and evil; but that is no longer the case! There was a time when there was no clouding of these issues, as it is today.
I know as an example, some years ago (in the 70’s) I used to work at the ABC studios, on Prospect Ave., in Hollywood, where I worked as a Page in Guest Relations. It was our job to provide security on the various sets, and provide audience control and such; and one of my jobs was to answer the phone in the control booth; and I actually sat next to a person whose job it was to screen and sensor the content on the various shows that were being produced.
Well I can tell you this, things that are allowed today would never have passed muster back in those days… and that includes in both what was allowed in language and also in content.
Today our children are being raised on a much different value system, and actually what is being taught in our public schools and also in our culture, in this so called progressive ideology and value system, is that there is no foundational bases for good and evil, or for right and wrong… that it is all relative; and so the effort is clearly made today to glorify evil; and also to cloud the lines between what is considered right and wrong, and good and evil.
Where once kids grew up identifying with the heroes in the various series they watched, as exemplified in the “Long Ranger” series; today it is not uncommon to have them siding with the bad guy, or the one who is in opposition to guys in the white hats; and also quite often today the guys in the white hats are themselves portrayed as the crooks.
There was a book I remember reading in college that was written by Marshall McLuhan, entitles The Media is the Message; and the point of the book was to point out the power that the media has in our culture to determine and to set our value system and our morals.
Once it was the purview of the Church, to be the gatekeepers of society; but today that job has been turned over to the talking heads on the evening news, and our Hollywood stars; and it is very definitely the media, that over time, have been the ones who have set the standards and morals for our society, as to what is good and evil, and what is right and wrong.
You can see this all over today in our Sitcoms that are so popular today, and also in the drama and action features that we have.
No more do we have the traditional Judaic/Christian values being exemplified, in having a normal family being portrayed, where there is a mother and father, who are portrayed in any traditional fashion, as say you once could see in programs like “Ozzie and Harriet,” The Donna Reed Show,” or “Father Knows Best;” but rather today if there is a father in the picture his character is most often portrayed as a bumbling fool, and it is the kids who run the house; and certainly in most cases today the father figure is not portrayed in a good and wise light.
Also, you will find today that many of the characters, in both the sitcoms and action/adventure dramas, are often being portrayed today as being homosexuals, and you actually see stories being written today, portraying everyday life situations, where this lifestyle is made to appear as natural and normal; and the way they do this is to inject humor, and to get you to laugh at the situations that are being portrayed; that in years past would have been considered taboo, and would never have been allowed; but today it’s no big thing.
Also, you will note that quite often if a person is portrayed as a “Christian” today, most often he or she will be the shady character, the phony, or the raving lunatic, who is a mass murderer, or worse.
Satan has well used the media to his advantage; and I would even say if we can attribute our present condition today, in our society, and the sad and immoral state of so many of our governing officials and leadership in both the public and the private sectors, who have been taking us on this downward spiral, and this moral and ethically landslide for years now, I would have to say that the major influence and cause of today’s lack of morals and the absence of any moral standards and compass for our society… is in fact the media!
My position is that if we, who are Christians, are to take back our culture, then we are also going to have to take back the media; and we are going to have to start producing programs, movies, music, and all forms of entertainment that are both well done and entertaining; that are every bit as real and professional, and even more so, than what we see coming out of Hollywood today.
I mean come on folks, we do have the Holy Spirit—who is by the way very creative—on our side; and so instead of the media being used in a negative fashion to undermine our culture and society in a negative way; why not use it to turn our culture around and aim it back in the right direction… back towards God?
Anyhow, that’s my two cents for today… how do you feel?
Meet Gerard Le Feuvre
The man and his music
|From Haven Today: Gerard Le Feuvre
Gerard Le Feuvre was born to become a Lord, as his father before him had been on the Channel Island of Jersey. As one of the privileged few, he had no desire to know his heavenly Father until one day, walking in a forest in Finland, he heard a voice speak to him and say, “Come to me.”
Without a doubt he knew . . . it was Jesus.
Already a world-class cellist, Gerard Le Feuvre found that his music had suddenly changed. Instead of technical brilliance, his music now moved listeners to tears . . . and he only had one explanation – now he was playing for his Lord, THE Lord of Lords. Soon after, he founded The Kings Chamber Orchestra in London which today plays for the glory of God.
