Basic Package of Editable Forms


By Anna Von Reitz

Here is the basic package of editable forms I have been working on.  Please tweak or forever hold your peace.  These or very similar progenitors of these forms have been used to set free many thousands of Americans and put them and their assets beyond the reach of the fraudsters.  We want to make the number zoom into the many millions who need and will want to come home.

( Webmaster’s note:  These are word documents. They will not display in your browser. You need to download them to your computer, then use Microsoft Word or Open Office to edit, then print them. When you click the link for each document it will download to your downloads folder. From there you can save them to any folder you want.)

2. Example Recording Cover Sheet  
3. Example of Acknowledgement, Acceptance and Deed of Re-Conveyance
4. Example of Certificate of Assumed Name
5.Example of Act of Expatriation for JOHN MARK DOE
6. Example of Act of Expatriation for JOHN M. DOE
7. Example of Act of Expatriation for JOHN DOE
8. Example Baby Land Deed

This is the basic package everyone needs to fill out and record with the local land recording office to reclaim their birthright political status and reclaim their Good Names and Estates.  Please note: do not register anything. Only record

If your local land recording district or county land recording office won’t record your paperwork, look for a county that will.  Often it is only a matter of traveling a few miles or sending it through the mail. 

Worst comes to worst, do the paperwork, make a black and white copy for your files, and send the originals to yourself via a Registered Mail Letter.  When the letter comes back, DON’T OPEN IT.  Put it in your folder with your file copy.  The Post Office and the Registered Mail Number serve the recording function.  

Let’s begins with the Diagram of the Fraud — people need to see how it starts with the “missing” Trade Name.  This process brings forward the Trade Name and “finds” it again, and then allows us to reclaim our “reversionary trust interest” in all the derivative NAMES free and clear. 

Virtually all land recording offices now require a Recording Cover Sheet.  This gives an example of the first Recording Cover Sheet needed to file the Acknowledgement, Acceptance and Deed of Re-Conveyance.  All subsequent filings need to be done with a Recording Cover Sheet as “Extensions” of the original Deed Document Number that will be issued once the Deed of Re-Conveyance is recorded. 

For example, the next Recording Cover Sheet would be identical, except the document title would be:  Certificate of Assumed Name – Extension 891039-1
(this number will be whatever number was assigned to your Deed of Re-Conveyance and will associate the Certificate of Assumed Name with the Deed in the recording system.)

The Deed seizes upon the Trade Name and brings it back to the land and soil jurisdiction. 

The Certificate of Assumed Name seizes upon the derivative NAMES and returns them to control of the living man. 

The Act of Expatriation explicitly renounces Territorial and Municipal “citizenship” and returns the derivative NAMES and ACCOUNTS to the land and soil. 

The Baby Deed of Land Recording is to help new parents and put an end to the “salvaging” of American babies by these corporate vermin. Simply have a Third Party — grandparent, uncle, family friend— do the notarization and record the Baby Deed as another Extension of the Father’s Deed of Re-Conveyance.  If the Father refuses to claim his Trade Name and Estate, or is dead or disabled,
the Baby Deed can be attached to the Mother’s Deed of Re-Conveyance.

Border tensions highlight Venezuelans’ economic distress

Maduro is hoping that his new measures, including raising minimum wages by 3,000 per cent, will curb the economic downward spiral [PPIO]

Calm returned to the streets of the Brazilian border town of Pacaraima Monday after President Michel Temer ordered the military and security forces to the area.

On Saturday, Pacaraima residents clashed with Venezuelans who had streamed across the border, particularly through the border town of Santa Elena de Uairen.

The Venezuela authorities since 2016 opened the border crossings with neighboring countries such as Brazil and Colombia, to allow desperate Venezuelans to cross over and purchase their dietary and medicinal needs. But one of the challenges was the devaluation of the Venezuelan bolivar currency – now heading toward nearly 1,000,000 per cent devaluation.

Many Venezuelans have taken to staying in neighboring Latin American countries.

According to immigration officials in Pacaraima, at least 1,200 Venezuelans had slept on the streets and makeshift dwellings in the border town.

But they have now all been forced to return to the Venezuelan side of the border as the security situation returns to stable in Pacaraima.

Venezuela is now in one of the worst economic crises in the history of Latin America.

In just the past year, food protests have increased exponentially as prices skyrocketed. The crime rate has soared with violent robberies taking place including hundreds of looting incidents.

Venezuelans now face multiple daily power outages while businesses shut down and factory output drops significantly.

Even for those who can afford to buy food, staple scarcity has become a major challenge for the government.

Venezuela has been unable to sufficiently import its most basic needs as the drastic drop in oil prices since 2014 has created an enormous financial shortfall. Oil revenues have fallen from nearly $90 billion to about $20 billion as foreign debt has mushroomed to $140 billion or so.

Venezuela, like some emerging economies, has based nearly its entire GDP growth on oil exports. The recent surge in oil prices will provide some reprieve but Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro on Monday raised minimum wages by 3,000 per cent as he officially devalued the currency by 90 per cent.

Q

Spanish Invaders Were Not the Cause of Mexico’s 16th-Century Megadeath Cocoliztli Epidemics

The historical narrative of the Spanish conquest of Mexico states that, armed with modern weapons and Old World diseases, several hundred Spanish soldiers toppled the Aztec empire in 1521.

By the end of the century, the invaders had wiped out 90 percent of the natives, according to Jewish authors like Jerod Diamond of “Guns, Germs and Steel.” Diamond argues that Eurasian civilization is not so much a product of ingenuity but of opportunity and necessity. That is, civilization is not created out of superior intelligence but rather is the result of a chain of developments, each made possible by certain preconditions, including advantages in germ resistance.

It’s a key piece of the “Black Legend,” the tales of atrocities committed by the Spanish Inquisition and colonizers of The New World. But it may be just that — legend, according to Rodolfo Acuña-Soto, a Harvard-trained epidemiologist.

Acuña-Soto, who spent 12 years dissecting colonial archives, census data, graveyard records and autopsy reports. He’s convinced that many historians are wrong about what killed the Aztecs.

“The problem with history is that it’s very ideological,” Acuña-Soto said. “In this case, it was a beautiful way of accusing the Spaniards of unimaginable cruelties and of decimating the population of Mexico.”

More recent work by scientists swept aside smallpox, measles, mumps and influenza (brought in by Europeans) as likely suspects. They instead point to a typhoid-like “enteric fever” for which there is DNA evidence on the teeth of long-dead victims, reports News.com.au.

A physician named Francisco Hernandez, who witnessed the outbreak in 1576, the symptoms suffered included high fever, severe headache, vertigo, black tongue, dark urine, dysentery, severe abdominal and chest pain, head and neck nodules, neurological disorders, jaundice and profuse bleeding from the nose, eyes and mouth. Death frequently occurred within three to four days. This epidemic mainly afflicted young people and seldom elder ones.

A study by Ashild Vagene of the University of Tuebingen in Germany states, “The 1545-50 cocoliztli was one of many epidemics to affect Mexico after the arrival of Europeans but was specifically the second of three epidemics that were most devastating and led to the largest number of human losses estimated at 12-15 million. The first cocoliztli of 1520-1521 devastated 8 million.”

Study co-author Alexander Herbig, also from Tuebingen University, stated, “We tested for all bacterial pathogens and DNA viruses for which genomic data is available,” and salmonella enterica was the only germ detected.

The epidemic in 1576 occurred after a drought stretching from Venezuela to Canada, according to a study published in the science journal “Nature Ecology & Evolution.” The cocolitzli epidemics appeared to be preceded by several years of drought. Acuña-Soto also found that the epidemics didn’t happen during the drought. They appeared only in the wet periods that followed it. That was the crucial clue he had missed: It was raining when people got sick.

Analyzing DNA extracted from 29 skeletons buried in a cocoliztli cemetery, scientists found traces of salmonella enterica bacterium of the Paratyphi C variety. This is virulent haemorrhagic fever, or “bleeding-eye fever,” that is transmitted through tick-bites and contact with the blood of infected animals. Very ill patients may suffer organ failure after the fifth day of illness.

All types of hemorrhagic viruses share traits. They are extremely simple, composed only of RNA enveloped in a fatty membrane, and they all must develop first in an animal host, often rodents or bats. They are commonly spread by insects, such as ticks or mosquitoes. An insect bite or direct exposure to rodent feces or urine or indirect exposure through windblown particles can pass the virus to humans. The virus must have been native-born.

What Are the Benefits of Chamomile?

By Dr. Mercola

Herbal teas can be a rich source of beneficial compounds like polyphenols and flavonoids, which have antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. One of the most soothing of all herbal teas — with a long history of beneficial use dating back to ancient Egypt — is chamomile. Chamomile is the common name for several daisy-like plants belonging to the Asteraceae family, namely German chamomile (Matricaria retutica) and Roman or English chamomile (Chamaemelum nobile).

While you are very likely familiar with the tea, you may not realize chamomile is also useful as a bath, cream, essential oil, gargle, inhalation, poultice and tincture. In addition to having a sedative effect, as well as antioxidant and anti-inflammatory compounds, chamomile also possesses antibacterial, antifungal, antispasmodic, antiulcer and antiviral properties.

Consumption of chamomile tea has even been shown to protect you from benign thyroid diseases and thyroid cancer. Without a doubt, chamomile is one herb you shouldn’t overlook.

History of Chamomile

Chamomile’s history1 begins in ancient Egypt, where it was first mentioned as a cure for fever. The Egyptians also used chamomile as a cosmetic, as well as an embalming oil for preserving dead pharaohs. The Romans used chamomile in incense, as a medicinal herb and as a flavoring for drinks.

In Spain, chamomile flowers are known as “manzanilla,” meaning “little apple,” and the herb has long been used to flavor a light sherry of the same name. During medieval times, chamomile petals were strewn about on the ground during gatherings to create pleasant odors.

Seven Health Benefits of Chamomile

In addition to its pleasant taste as a tea and ready accessibility, chamomile has been praised for millennia for its many health benefits. The presence of numerous antioxidants contributes to chamomile’s many positive effects on your body. Among its many health benefits, chamomile:2,3,4

Acts as a mild sedative and sleep inducer — Chamomile has long been used to treat insomnia and is highly regarded for its ability to induce daytime calmness and relaxation. Its sedative effects are likely due to the flavonoid apigenin, which binds to benzodiazepine receptors in your brain.

While there is an absence of clinical trials to validate the effects of chamomile on sleep, 10 cardiac patients who drank chamomile tea were reported to have quickly fallen into a deep sleep lasting 90 minutes.5 Authors of a study involving the effects of chamomile extracts on sleep-disturbed rats concluded chamomile extracts exhibit “benzodiazepine-like hypnotic activity.”6

Addresses cold symptoms and sinus pain and pressure
— Anecdotal studies suggest chamomile can be effective as a natural cold remedy, especially for cold symptoms such as sinus congestion, pain and pressure. Check out the video above for a demonstration on how to use dried chamomile flowers as an herbal steam to clear your sinuses and lungs.

Calms gum inflammation, mouth sores and tooth abscesses — Chamomile has been shown to be effective in the treatment of gum inflammation, mouth sores and ulcers and tooth abscesses. Some suggest placing a wet chamomile teabag alongside an inflamed tooth may provide pain relief until you are able to be seen by your dentist.

Reduces menstrual cramps and pain — Multiple studies have validated chamomile tea to help reduce the severity of menstrual cramps. A 2010 study7 published in the Iranian Journal of Obstetrics, Gynecology and Infertility indicated that consuming chamomile tea for a month appears to reduce menstrual pain and cramps, as well as the anxiety and distress that often accompanies it.

The study authors said: “[C]hamomile tea [is] an effective therapy in relieving the pain originated from primary dysmenorrhea and its consequent psycho-social problems.”

Relieves gastrointestinal complaints and bowel problems — Though most of the evidence is anecdotal, chamomile is believed to help reduce smooth muscle spasms associated with gastrointestinal inflammatory disorders such as Crohn’s disease, diverticular disease, gastritis, irritable bowel problems and ulcerative colitis.

Chamomile is particularly helpful in dispelling gas, soothing heartburn and relaxing muscles that move food through your intestines. It also inhibits Helicobacter pylori, a bacterium linked to stomach ulcers.

Soothes burns and other skin irritations — Although somewhat less effective than hydrocortisone cream, chamomile has been shown to be effective in relieving minor burns and sunburn, as well as soothing skin conditions such as chickenpox, diaper rash, eczema and psoriasis.

Treats eye infections and inflammation — Due to its calming and soothing properties, chamomile has been shown to reduce eye irritation and redness.8 Add two chamomile teabags to 3 cups of boiling water. Allow to steep until the tea has cooled, then discard the teabags. Dip a clean washcloth into the cooled tea and apply to your eye as a compress for 15 minutes, three to four times a day.

Increases NAD+ — Chamomile is relatively high in a flavone called apigenin which just happens to inhibit CD38 that is one of the largest consumers of NAD+. If you inhibit CD38 and reduce NAD+ consumption you will increase NAD+ levels. Because of this benefit i drink a cup of chamomile tea every night.

Volatile Oils Are the Basis for Chamomile’s Many Health Benefits

The many health benefits of chamomile are linked to the volatile oils found in its flowers, which include bisabolol, bisabolol oxides A and B and matricin, as well as other bioactive ingredients, such as:9

Chamazulene or azulenesse

Coumarins like herniarin and umbelliferone

Farnese and spiro-ether sesquiterpene lactones

Flavonoids such as apigenin, luteolin, patuletin and quercetin

Glycosides

Hydroxycoumarins

Mucilage

Terpenoids

About the extensive medicinal benefits of chamomile, authors of a 2010 study published in Molecular Medicine Reports said:10

“Chamomile preparations are commonly used for many human ailments such as hay fever, inflammation, muscle spasms, menstrual disorders, insomnia, ulcers, wounds, gastrointestinal disorders, rheumatic pain and hemorrhoids. Essential oils of chamomile are used extensively in cosmetics and aromatherapy. Many different preparations of chamomile have been developed, the most popular of which is in the form of herbal tea consumed more than 1 million cups per day.

Chamomile has been used as an herbal medication since ancient times, is still popular today and probably will continue to be used in the future because it contains various bioactive phytochemicals that could provide therapeutic effects. Chamomile can help in improving cardiovascular conditions, stimulate [the] immune system and provide some protection against cancer.”

Chamomile Shown to Reduce Your Risk of Thyroid Cancer

A 2015 study11 published in the European Journal of Public Health linked the consumption of chamomile tea to a lower risk of benign thyroid diseases and thyroid cancer. In fact, the more tea consumed, the lower the cancer risk. Specifically, those who drank chamomile tea two to six times a week had a 70-percent lower risk of developing thyroid abnormalities, while those who drank the tea regularly for 30 years achieved an 80 percent lower risk. According to the study authors:

“Although in the last decade several studies have addressed the protective role of black and green tea on several diseases, including cancer, there are only few, and controversial, studies on the effect of tea on benign and malignant thyroid diseases … Our findings suggest, for the first time, that drinking herbal teas, especially chamomile, protects from thyroid cancer, as well as other benign thyroid diseases.”

Chamomile’s anticancer effects very likely result from naturally occurring flavonoids such as apigenin. Found not only in chamomile, but also in celery and parsley, as well as other vegetables, fruits and herbs, apigenin has been shown to slow cancer growth and shrink cancerous tumors in animal studies. A 2012 study12 in which mice implanted with the cells of a fast-growing human breast cancer were treated with apigenin, cancer growth slowed and tumors shrank.

While more research is needed, authors of a 2017 study13 published in Cell & Bioscience indicated: “All evidence gathered thus far clearly indicates that apigenin has strong anticancer activities against various human cancers alone, and in combination with other chemotherapeutic agents.”

The Best Ways to Use Chamomile

If you’ve long known about chamomile tea but never considered using this versatile herb for anything else, you may be interested to know of its other uses for adults, which include:14

Bath — Add 1/4 pound of dried flowers or 5 to 10 drops of essential oil to bathwater to soothe cuts, eczema, hemorrhoids or insect bites

Capsules — Consume 300 to 400 milligrams three times per day, as directed by your physician

Cream — Apply cream containing 3 to 10 percent chamomile to treat dry, flaky skin, as well as eczema and psoriasis

Gargle or mouthwash — Gargle with cooled chamomile tea as often as desired or make a mouthwash by adding 10 to 15 drops of German chamomile liquid extract to about 3 ounces of warm water, and use up to three times a day

Inhalation — Calm a cough by adding a few drops of chamomile essential oil to a pot of hot water and breathe in the steam

Poultice — Mix powdered chamomile with water to make a paste and then apply it to inflamed skin

Tea — Pour 1 cup of boiling water over 2 to 3 heaping teaspoons of dried chamomile, steep as long as desired and drink between meals

Tincture — Take 1 teaspoon up to three times daily to calm frayed nerves, ease menstrual cramps, improve sleep and relieve headaches.

Chamomile Tincture Recipe

The video above, posted by Homesteadonomics, explains how to make a chamomile tincture at home, as well as some popular uses for it. Making a tincture is a great way to preserve chamomile because the potency of its volatile oils is more effectively retained through preservation.

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup of dried chamomile flowers
  • Approximately 1 cup of boiling water
  • Approximately 1 1/2 to 1 3/4 cups of 80-proof vodka
  • Quart-sized glass jar with airtight lid

Procedure:

  1. Place dried chamomile flowers in a clean quart-sized glass jar
  2. Pour boiling water over the flowers until they are covered; stir as needed to ensure flowers are saturated
  3. Add vodka to fill the jar, then cover tightly with lid and shake well
  4. Store in a cool, dark place and shake daily for four to six weeks
  5. After four to six weeks, pour liquid through a strainer and discard flowers
  6. Store tincture in a clean glass jar

In terms of the vodka used, choosing a USDA certified, organic alcohol is best to ensure it is free of GMOs and pesticides. The recommended dosing for chamomile tincture is as follows:15

  • Adults — 1 teaspoon three times a day, as needed, to induce relaxation and promote restful sleep
  • Infants — Rub a small drop on gums during teething or on the stomach to relieve colic pain and calm a restless child
  • Toddlers and older children — 1/2 teaspoon up to three times a day, when needed, to induce sleep

Giving babies and young children who are having trouble sleeping a dose of chamomile tincture immediately prior to bedtime may help relax and prepare them for a restful night’s sleep.

Cautions About Chamomile

While chamomile is generally well tolerated, you should avoid it if you have an allergy to ragweed or any other member of the daisy family of plants such as chrysanthemum or marigold. Avoid chamomile if you are pregnant, or if you are taking anticoagulants or sedative medications.16

Prior to using chamomile essential oil, do a skin test on your arm before applying it to your whole body. As with most other essential oils, it is best to use chamomile with a carrier oil such as coconut oil or olive oil.
