Coordinator’s Handbook — Chapter 4

 By Anna Von Reitz

American State Nationals and American State Citizens
Our Forefathers designed a deliberately complex and “counter-balanced” system of government and paid special attention to conflicts of interest. This system of Checks and Balances was followed at every level and step, from the foundations of our Counties to our States to our States of States, and finally, to each segment of the Federal Government, too.
It is well to remember that at the time, there were large inclusive segments of the population built upon relationships with various European countries.
We had English colonists, but also French, Protestant and Papist, Dutch, and Spanish in the West. Building a cohesive and defensible whole out of such disparate origins and conflicts of affiliation, culture, and tradition required extraordinary measures.
In the end, it was accomplished via the skillful use– and just as skillful limitation of— jurisdictional authority.
Our physically-defined counties control the national jurisdiction of the soil, and, taken together, define the “embodiment” of the combined soil jurisdiction owed to our state of the Union.
Notice the small “s”. When we are talking about soil jurisdiction, we are talking about the state as a nation-state. Alabama is a nation-state as well as a State of the Union.
Each county government is the supreme local authority and so, the county Sheriff is the supreme elected peacekeeping official– however, in keeping with Checks and Balances, this supreme authority extends only within the physical borders of the county, and each county has only its own State as an interface with other States and foreign countries. It is cut off from the rest of the world.
This becomes important when you realize that if it were otherwise, each county could split off and ally itself with any foreign government it chose, and our country would quickly become a hodge-podge of over 3,000 disparate crazy quilt pieces, all functioning under different laws and warring with each other and using different forms of currency.
Without this “segregation of the soil jurisdiction” the Union would have dissolved even as it was being born.
Each such county and the nation-state that the combined counties build, is populated by people, known as American State Nationals. Note the small “p” on “people”.
We have already seen that Americans born within the borders of a State acquire their nationality at birth, and so we become Texans, New Yorkers, Minnesotans, and so on.
We remain American State Nationals until the age of 21, when we can choose to act as State Citizens.
The word “citizen” always implies an obligation to serve some level or form of government, and it is no exception here. When we are old enough to accept the responsibility and understand the obligations involved, we become eligible to act as Citizens of our State of the Union.
What do we mean by “State of the Union”? Notice the capital “S”?
The State is different and set apart from the nation-state formed by the combined soil jurisdictions of the counties. The State level of government exists in the International Jurisdiction of the Land and Sea. It is inhabited by Persons, either Lawful Persons or Legal Persons.
State Citizens voluntarily occupy an Office of Personhood in order to serve the interests of the International Jurisdiction of their State of the Union. Their Lawful Persons are known as People — notice the capital “P”.
The Land Jurisdiction begins six inches under the surface of the soil and extends to the center of the Earth by definition.
Land is an “international resource” as it and the resources of the subsoil — mineral deposits and subsurface water — cannot observe the strict and known boundaries of the soil surface.
Each State’s Land Jurisdiction is forever connected to its soil, but the nation-state of Alabama and the State known as Alabama occupy two distinct and different jurisdictions — one National, one International in nature.
So, Alabamans acting as American State Nationals are people who populate the soil jurisdiction of Alabama, but when they choose to act in the capacity of State Citizens, they operate as People, that is, Lawful Persons, and control the international land and sea jurisdiction of Alabama.
International Jurisdiction is the jurisdiction in which Alabama as a whole acts as a physically-defined State of the Union and interacts with the other States and with other Countries, for example, Denmark.
Our Forefathers, always anxious to avoid conflicts of interest which might undermine our security, defined State Citizens to be People having no other allegiance to or affiliation with any foreign State or Nation.
Thus, you cannot serve your State as a State Citizen, and decide international questions for your State of the Union, if you have any conflicts of interest.
Such conflicts of interest may include being licensed by a foreign government, receiving titles and offices from foreign governments, being employed by foreign governments, receiving unearned welfare benefits from foreign governments or other substantial gifts or emoluments from foreign governments.
This includes professional licenses, titles, offices, employments, and substantial unearned welfare, substantial gifts—land, gold, etc., or other emoluments conferred by the Federal Government Subcontractors or what we more readily recognize as foreign governments of other countries — Britain, France, etc.
It follows that anyone employed by any other level of government, anyone in receipt of professional licenses issued by any other level of government, or having any other such attachment, obligation, or conflict of interest, is limited to acting as an American State National.
A State Citizen must be free to make decisions impacting their State and its international relations with other States and Nations with a clear mind and open conscience, unaffected by mixed loyalties to any other Master.
Each State of the Union is thus populated by both American State Nationals and American State Citizens. Both can serve their State, both can vote in Public Elections for State and County offices, both inherit their nationality from their State, but when it comes to international and interstate questions, the State Citizens are the only ones authorized to vote on these matters.
By isolating the soil jurisdiction and giving it the supreme power over local law, the Founders sought to preserve the security of the people of each nation-state; they forestalled foreign speculation and interference by giving the counties one (1) and only one interface to international jurisdiction —- their own State of the Union.
By limiting international and interstate decision-making to State Citizens, they further ensured that the States would be self-interested and would not succumb to foreign interests seeking to parlay political influence or kick-backs into giveaways of State interests and assets.

Only Ignorance of the Public Law

 By Anna Von Reitz

If your local Sheriff knew that he was doing anything wrong by prosecuting you under private foreign law, he probably wouldn’t do it.  The same for the highway patrolmen.  And the State Troopers.  And the Federal Agents. 

Whenever they know the actual Public Law, they tend to obey it— but as they are not taught the Public Law and are not instructed to enforce the Public Law by their corporate bosses — what can you expect? 

So far as they know, they are obeying and enforcing “the” law, that is, the only law they know.  It never occurs to them that there is more than one kind of law, and that they may be dealing with people who live under different forms of law than they do. 

We live and breathe and stand under the Public Law, not their private “law”. 

It’s your Public Duty to tell them — and teach them.  

God knows that most of the “hired jurists” in this country are as ignorant as the Highway Patrol and are not capable of teaching anything but legal procedure and statutory law. 

So, if we are standing around waiting for the magistrates and attorneys to teach Law Enforcement Officers the actual Public Law of this country, we will be waiting a long, long while.  The Public Law isn’t their baileywick and they don’t wish to be held accountable to it, so of course, they don’t study it or pay much attention to it. 

They merely presume that you are one of them, that you adopt their law, and that you are accountable to the now 80 million statutes, codes, and regulations that they are required to obey.  

Like the Wendy’s employee running out on the street, grabbing me by the elbow, and demanding to know why I am not in uniform and flipping burgers—don’t I know it’s my shift?   

They are engaged in a self-serving delusion that we all stand under the same law they do.  That we have to be licensed, because they do.  That we have to do all the things and obey all the statutes, codes, and regulations—- that they have heaped upon themselves. 

Fortunately for us, that doesn’t happen to be true.  It remains for us to bring the news home to our employees. 

Witness the discussion I had with one of them recently.  He insisted that I had to obey statutory law.  To which I replied: 

Man is not subject to statutory law and not within its “contemplation”.   

Statutory Law exists for the creations of Statute—- and not otherwise. That’s why it is called “Statutory Law”.  It applies to persons, not people.  Humans, not men.  It comes from the same Latin root word as State and Status.  

State is the level of government that controls the International Jurisdictions of Land and Sea.  This jurisdiction is inhabited entirely by persons— Lawful Persons and Legal Persons.   Technically, no living, breathing man exists in these jurisdictions.   

I might have added —- as I act exclusively as a Lawful Person and stand under the Public Law, I am owed protection and assistance on the High Seas and Navigable Inland Waterways, and at all times, my Constitutional Guarantees and natural exemptions apply.  I don’t volunteer to waive any rights or adopt any offices of personhood. 

They can all read.  

Article VI.   Article IV.   Amendment X.  Amendment XI. 

He replied something to the effect that if I could show him any cases, statutes, etc., that agree with what I say, he’d accept my view.  So I sent him two bon mots —- in addition to the Constitution.  

“The state citizen is immune from any and all government attacks and procedures, absent contract.” See Dred Scott vs. Sanford, 60 US (19 How.) 393, or as the Supreme Court has succinctly said, “….every man is independent of all laws, except those prescribed by nature. He is not bound by any institutions formed by his fellowmen, without his consent.”  Cruden vs. Neale, 2 N.C. 238, 2 S.E. 70.

I am waiting for him to come back and say that he “can’t find” these cases; since they don’t speak to statutory law, they won’t be found among the tomes he regularly consults.  

That itself will be quite a discovery, as he stumbles upon the records of land jurisdiction courts, for the simple and supreme Public Law has been well-buried beneath the weight of 80 million statutes, codes, and regulations and all the court cases attached to them, so much so that people are naturally mistaking all this foreign litigation as something that pertains to them —- when, quite simply, it doesn’t.  And never did.
