For All The State Jural Assemblies – 33 The American Civil War


By Anna Von Reitz

From our discussions we have now fully realized that the Constitutions and the Federal Government arising from these venerable agreements only affected our country’s operations in the municipal jurisdiction’s realm of commerce  — that is, business conducted between two fully incorporated, chartered legal fiction entities.  

Adoption of the Federal, Territorial, and Municipal Constitutions didn’t affect our soil jurisdiction estates, doing business as The United States, nor did they impact our land jurisdiction States doing business as The United States of America, but they did change the operations of the States of America, a union of commercial corporations chartered by the States. 

The impact of the Constitutions on the States of America and on the member commercial corporations doing business under names styled like this: The State of Pennsylvania — was dramatic. 

The most important immediate change was that control of our fledgling Navy and our Naval operations was ceded to the British King, who was obligated to function as our Trustee on the High Seas and Inland Waterways, and to protect our private and international and commercial interests in those venues.  

Control of our international trade policy was also given away to the King.  At least in the realm of commerce, we traded our freedom for safety, though it is doubtful that many Americans realized this at the time.  

The overall result of adopting the Constitutions was to split up the functions originally taken care of by the States of America, and assign some of them to foreign governments to take care of “for” us.  

This power-sharing concession was pre-destined by the Treaties and earlier agreements that allowed for the end of The Revolutionary War.  In other words, these concessions and promises to share power with the British King and the Holy Roman Empire were obligations our Forefathers accepted as part of the Peace Negotiations and the Constitutions that resulted — Federal, Territorial, and Municipal — were simply the instruments used to implement the pre-existing deal. 

So, the States of America remained the fundamental Federal Service Provider as we came out of the Constitutional Convention, and as of 1787, The Constitution for the united States of America, emerged as “the Federal Constitution”.  That is, this is the Constitution creating the Federal Branch of the Federal Government.  

Though its powers and turf were battered and beaten in this process. the States of America was still a very potent force, with responsibility for the nation’s money and many other key services.  

The loss of control of the Naval Powers and the loss of control of our international trade policy was grievous, but was deemed necessary at the time: coming out of the Revolution we had a huge commercial fleet, but almost no Navy.  We had lots of raw materials to ship to eager markets in Europe and a need to get paid for them, but our unprotected commercial fleet was being decimated by privateers.  

Most of the American-based private commercial fleet belonged to two groups — British American former colonists sailing out of Rhode Island and Massachusetts and Virginia, and Dutch New York and Southern interests derived from the “disappeared” Dutch East India fleet that mysteriously vanished circa 1702 and wound up in New York and the Pacific.  They were the primary movers insisting on the surrender of our Naval Powers so that they could continue their commercial shipments unmolested. 

The rest of the people were tired of war and accepted the new inroads against our sovereignty rather than continue to fight and starve. 

Still, for many, these losses remained a sore point and the adoption of the Constitutions was by no means unopposed— nor, were the losses unforgotten. 
As the British Parliament began to impose ever-more disadvantageous trade policies on the American Federal States of States — all commercial corporations with their own axes to grind, tempers flared. 

Malfeasance by British Merchant Marine Officers known as Bar Attorneys led to the War of 1812, which was a push-back against unequal trade policies and unfair tariffs and market rigging.  

In 1819, the States of America responded by toughening already existing constitutional provisions against conflicts of interest and “buying of loyalty” by foreign powers bestowing foreign “Titles of Nobility” on Americans.  This was applied to the practice of bestowing the title “Esquire” on American Bar Attorneys. 

Frustrated by our resistance to their interference and manipulation of our commercial interests to our own detriment, the British Monarch and the then-Pope signed a clandestine treaty known as The Secret Treaty of Verona, in 1822, in which they agreed that our American system of government was intrinsically opposed to both feudal monarchies and papal authority.  

In gross Breach of Trust they agreed to secretively undermine our government — a course of action which they have pursued ever since and which has finally led to the present circumstance. 

This is the Big Picture, but to further understand, we must necessarily revisit what has euphemistically been called “The American Civil War”. 

First one must ask — what is a “Civil” War as opposed to any other kind of war? 

Civil = City = Municipal = Global Commercial Jurisdiction = war between Persons, not People = war between commercial corporations. 

This “War” called “The American Civil War” was not properly termed a war, but was instead a “Commercial Conflict” like the Vietnam Conflict, fought by foreign mercenaries on our shores, and by employees and volunteers backing the various Federal State of State commercial corporations.  

Those Federal States of States that remained loyal to the original Confederation doing business as the States of America represented the North and were called “Union” troops.  Many Americans even at the time mistook which “Union” they were fighting for and in what context. 

The Federal States of States that broke away from the original Confederation and formed their own version doing business as The Confederate States of America, represented the Southern State’s commercial corporations, and their troops were called “Confederates” as a result.  

The King of England gleefully funded both sides of the conflict and the separate international City State of Westminster lost no time setting up effective blockades and conscription services and issued privateer licenses against all our shipping North and South.  

From the standpoint of the Monarchists and the Holy Roman Empire, the object of the American Civil War was to defeat the South and take Southern Cotton out of the European markets, permanently end the cost saving advantages that slavery provided the Southern Plantations, and to reduce the Northern States of States to a condition of bankruptcy.  They succeeded in all respects. 

And Americans and America paid for it all.  

You must remember what we are talking about — a commercial “war” for markets and profits, waged by commercial corporations that are essentially no different than any other commercial corporation except that they are chartered directly by actual States instead of being chartered secondhand by States of States.  

The British and French-backed Northern States of States resented slavery for profit and market reasons, so they encouraged the Abolitionists.  Private slavery was already out of fashion in Europe and of no great economic consequence to their domestic markets— except that it gave the American Southern States of States a cost advantage in the marketplace, and they competed against British and French cotton plantations established elsewhere in the world.  

The British and Holy Roman Empire backed Southern States of States favored slavery for profit and market reasons, so they encouraged the Pro-Slavery Plantation owners — many of which produced products other than cotton.  Remember that the addictive properties of high nicotine tobacco were just beginning to be exploited as a de facto drug trade prior to the Civil War, and the squabble over cotton production interfered with tobacco, sugar, rum, molasses, and many other products.  

Last but not least, this commercial “war” was a bonanza for the railroads, the arms manufacturers, and the U.S. Armed Forces, especially the British-controlled Navy, which received privateer kickbacks.  There had never been a better opportunity for professional soldiers in this country and men like Ulysses S. Grant and William Tecumseh Sherman made the most of it. 

So it is not a pretty picture, but it is an accurate one.  The members of the original Confederation of Federal States of States doing business as  the States of America —- all of them commercial corporations chartered by their States, all of them assigned service contracts under The Constitution for the united States of America — took the European bait and went to war with each other.  

By 1863, the Northern States of States were bankrupt.  By 1865, the Southern States were in ruins and the Southern States of States gave up the fight.  

Since it was not an actual war according to the definition of “war”, there was never any Declaration of War issued by any Congress related to the American Civil War, nor was the surrender of Lee’s Army at Appomattox a peace treaty. The corporations and those backing them simply decided to stop fighting and went home, leaving the Federal Government in chaos that has persisted and been capitalized upon until this day. 

The Federal States of States are separate entities though they were all chartered by the actual States.  The Confederation of States founded in 1781 was in ruins.  It would require a concerted effort to “Reconstruct” the Federal States of States and form new commercial corporations to service their obligations under The Constitution for the united States of America.  

That job of reconstruction of the Federal States of States has never been accomplished, and it can only be done by the actual States and People.  
So the People must assemble and the States must assemble and they have to take care of long-overdue business.  As we shall see, certain parties who owed us better service left us unaware of this urgent necessity and deliberately lulled us into the assumption that the Reconstruction Era was long over, and that we had no work to do. 

Until this long overdue process of reconstruction is undertaken, the entire Federal Branch of the Federal Government is out of commission, moth-balled, and the assets of the original Federal States of States that came through the ruination and bankruptcies have been rolled into “land trusts” — meaning that these trusts belong to the land jurisdiction States and People.  

The assets of The State of Maryland and The State of Maine and The State of Pennsylvania…. and so on, have been rolled into the Maryland State (land trust), Maine State (land trust), Pennsylvania State (land trust)….

The actual States and People of this country are being summoned to take action in their own behalf and to reconstruct their Federal States of States and to restore the Federal Government they are owed—- all of it, not just the Territorial and Municipal bits.  

Please bear in mind and be aware that your actual soil jurisdiction states, dba The United States, and your land jurisdiction States, dba The United States of America, and all their member republics and States, have never been involved in any of this commercial uproar.  Our only duty and our only failure thus far is to recognize certain semantic deceits, to organize ourselves into competent State Jural Assemblies, and to re-charter our Federal States of States to provide the services owed to our States under The Constitution for the united States of America.

For All The State Jural Assemblies – 32 The Federal States of States


By Anna Von Reitz

As we have learned in the prior articles about the Union of soil jurisdiction states, and the Federation of States and the Confederation of States of States, there are fundamental misunderstandings and semantic deceits we need to overcome—things that we have been taught that were wrong, things that were half-truths, and assumptions that we made that need correction. 

The first consideration is that the word “states” can refer to a lot of different things and we should not just assume that our geographically defined States are being referenced, because people often sloppily refer to “States of States” as “States”, too, and don’t always understand that actual States are defined geographically.  

The second is that the word “federal” can be similarly misapplied.  It can refer to our Federation of States doing business as The United States of America, or it can refer to some other “federation” entirely.  

The worst bit of confusion of this sort surrounds the Federal States of States, which have also been called “Confederate States” since The Articles of Confederation were signed in 1781.  

We need a thorough understanding of the Federal States of States, aka, Confederate States, before we discuss the American Civil War. 

The first thing we notice is that “Confederate States” also known as the Federal States of States have been around since long before the Civil War. This comes as a big surprise to most people. 

The second thing we notice is that these Federal States of States, also known as “Confederate States”  are “inchoate” states, that is, they are total legal fictions and they are not geographically defined.  

The third thing we see is that The States of States are commercial corporations created by the State Governments.  Each Federal State of State is chartered and run by a State.  Georgia chartered The State of Georgia, for example. 

The fourth important thing is that the original Federal States of States were all named using the same style of Proper Name and they all capitalized “The” and included this definite article as part of their names:  The State of Georgia, The State of Maine, The State of Minnesota…..and so on. 

The fifth important point is that all these Federal States of States, also known as Confederate States, were members of the States of America union— one of the three unions of “states” making up the original American Government as of 1781.  

The sixth important take home message that their Union of States of States, doing business as the “States of America”  is the Union being referenced in the Preamble of the Constitutions.  In other words, its the States of America  Confederation that is the “Union” being “perfected” by the Constitutions, not The United States, not The United States of America. 

The actual Federal Constitution is called, “The Constitution for the united States of America”.  

Please note that this is the “original’ and “controlling” constitution in the series of three, the one that creates and defines the “Federal Government” as of 1787. 
Note also that the word “united” is used as a descriptive adjective and is not part of the Proper Name of the States of America organization being referenced, and notice that “the” is not capitalized or included in the name, either.  

This further underscores the fact that these Federal States of States and their States of America organization are operating exclusively in the realm of global municipal commercial jurisdiction. 

Article VI of all three “federal” Constitutions  guarantees that debts and obligations of the confederacy will continue to be honored under the new power-sharing arrangement established by the Constitutional Convention. 

The adoption of the Federal, Territorial and Municipal Constitutions  basically split up the business service contracts and gave part of what was originally all being done by the States of America to the British Territorial Government and the Holy Roman Empire’s local Municipal Government doing business as “the” United States.  

We can be sure that: (1) the original Federal Constitution known as “The Constitution for the united States of America” directly references the “States of America’ Confederation; (2) this is the “Union” being “perfected” by the adoption of the Constitutions;  (3) Article VI references honoring the debts and obligations of the Confederate States —because they are the only ones being impacted by the adoption of the Constitutions. 

Take note — part of the commercial business of the original States of America Confederation is being given away to the British and the Holy Roman Empire as a result of adopting the Constitutions.

For All The State Jural Assemblies – 31 Mandatory Citizenship Requirements


By Anna Von Reitz

As we have learned and reviewed to this point, the American Government is composed of three unions of three different kinds of states: soil, land, and inchoate Federal States of States. 

The United States = soil jurisdiction states and people, geographically defined, republican states, State Republics and Republics of States. 

The United States of America =  international land jurisdiction States and People, geographically defined, members are Ohio, Maine, Florida, et alia. 

The State Jural Assemblies create and operate and populate these geographically defined States of the Union and together constitute “We, the People”.  

The States of America = global municipal jurisdiction States of States, not geographically defined, “inchoate”, legal fictions, members are: The State of Ohio, The State of Maine, The State of Florida, et alia. 

These are not States in the same sense as land and soil jurisdiction States. They are commercial corporations operating in the global municipal jurisdiction of the air as “States of States”.  

The Persons operating these “States of States” create State of State Jural Societies instead of State Jural Assemblies.

The land and soil jurisdiction States require us to have a single citizenship and allegiance — to them.  They don’t allow any form of Dual Citizenship and never have.  


The Founders adhered to the principle that ‘no man can serve two masters” and did not allow conflicted people (people with conflicts of interest, such as loyalty to the King) to participate in State Government.  


Thus, obviously, you do need to expatriate from any other citizenship if you want to participate in a State Jural Assembly. 

And if you want to continue to claim Dual Citizenship as a Federal employee or dependent, you are welcome to set up a State Jural Society, and operate in that realm and continue to do the political party hokey-pokey. 

America as a whole needs help from both sides of the fence, but there is a fence, and we need to be aware of it. 

The main fact to take in is that the actual geographically defined States don’t allow any wishy-washy on this issue of citizenship requirements for participation in State Jural Assemblies, so anyone who doesn’t want to expatriate from “US citizenship” needs to set up and participate in a State Jural Society instead. 

Please note that for purposes of foreign travel, Americans are under the auspices of The United States of America (the unincorporated version) not The United States.  

Federal employees and dependents are under the auspices of “the” United States when they travel and are considered Municipal Citizens while abroad, subject to global Municipal Law.

For All The Jural Assemblies – 30 The Constitutions


By Anna Von Reitz

Just as it is a shock for many people to realize that there is an American Government operating separate from the Federal Government it created, and that there were “Confederate States” in operation long before the Civil War, it will come as a shock to many to realize that there are in fact three (3) Constitutions, not one. 

Much of our education has been neglected so as to promote fraud against us and make us — and our entire country — easy marks.

Let’s notice a few general things that are important about the Constitutions and the Federal Government they created.

1. The word “Federal” can be used in several ways.  It can be used as a descriptive adjective indicating a contractual relationship with our American Federation of States — The United States of America [the unincorporated version] — or any other federated entity; it can also be applied to any part of a federated entity.

This is important, because it allows a great deal of “genial deception” and not-so genial deception, which we will discuss a bit more fully.

2. All “Federal” entities referenced by the Constitutions operate exclusively in the global municipal jurisdiction of the air and are fictions created by fictions.

Via the Constitutions, these commercial businesses contracted with our States to provide our States with nineteen (19) stipulated services, which according to the Preamble of each Constitution, includes safeguarding our National Trust.

That is, there is no direct connection between any Federal entity and our States, except that our States own and (are supposed to) operate the Federal States of States, which have been officially Missing in Action since 1868, and all the Branches of the Federal Government are under contract to provide our States with stipulated services.   

3. There are three (3) branches of the “Federal Government” established by the three (3) Constitutions, and they are all limited and related to each other within the context of their separate constitutional agreements with our States:

(a) The Federal Branch of the Federal Government is supposed to be run by the Federal States of States (the original Confederate States) and their Union of States of States doing business as the “States of America” operating in the global municipal jurisdiction of the air — commerce.

(b) The Territorial Branch of the Federal Government is run by the British Government under authority delegated to King George III via the Treaties leading up to and including The Definitive Treaty of Peace, Paris, 1783, which ended The Revolutionary War. 

This Territorial Branch of the Federal Government is in charge of supervising British Territorial Citizens “residing” in our States of the Union for the purpose of providing us with stipulated governmental services— most especially, protection on the High Seas and Navigable Inland Waterways (Naval Defense and Defense of our Commercial Fleets and International Trade) and management of our “Territorial Possessions”— like the Insular States of Puerto Rico, American Samoa, and Guam, and the Territorial States arising under the Northwest Ordinance, which provides an orderly means for new territories of The United States to become States of The United States of America.

(c) The Municipal Branch of the Federal Government is supposed to be operated by members of the Federal Congress, and the Federal Congress is supposed to be composed of Deputies from each State charged with running the Federal State of State belonging to their State of the Union. The Municipal Branch of the Federal Government is given the responsibility to oversee the District of Columbia as a neutral meeting ground and to provide a local government for the Municipality of Washington, DC.  Unfortunately, they were granted plenary power over the ten miles square of the District of Columbia and the Municipality of Washington, DC. See Article 1, Section 8, Clause 17. And the Municipal Charter was granted by the Holy Roman Empire.

So, contrary to what you learned in Eighth Grade, the Branches of the Federal Government are not “executive, legislative, and judicial”, they are Federal, Territorial, and Municipal.

All three operate in the global municipal jurisdiction of the air and are operating as commercial business enterprises providing governmental services.

All three have separate existences apart from their role as service providers under the constitutional agreements.

All three are obligated by solemn treaties and commercial service agreements to provide Good Faith Service to our States and People. 

All three operate exclusively via Delegated Powers. 

In order to provide us with the nineteen (19) stipulated services, our States delegated some of their “powers” to be exercised by the Federal Government — with the complete understanding that they retained all their other powers (Amendment X) and also with the understanding that if the Federal service providers failed to hold up their end, the States and People doing business as The United States of America, would have the right to sever the constitutional agreements, withdraw their Delegated Power, and find new means of providing the stipulated services and doing business in the commercial realm.

This is precisely where we stand today, the urgent reason that the State Jural Assemblies must assemble, and the reason our birthright political status must be declared and asserted. 

Only the People who own the States that contracted with the commercial businesses operating the Federal Government are competent to (a) restore and reconstruct the Federal States of States and (b) enforce the constitutional agreements.

As things now stand, those of us who woke up early in the morning are operating the Holding Company, The United States of America.  We have fully informed the rest of the world that all bets are off and that we are only accepting services explicitly stipulated by the Constitutions and only on a month-by-month quid pro quo basis while our States Assemble.

We have also informed all Parties that incompetency in bankruptcy severs the presumed service contracts and related delegated authorities by Operation of Law, and that we acknowledge and accept the bankruptcy of the Municipal United States and receive back all Powers delegated to the Municipal Congress.

Once the people have been sufficiently educated and have reclaimed their birthright political status and taken up their Lawful role as People and have Assembled their State, a Continental Congress of the States and their Lawful Deputies will be called to confirm and reconsider all aspects of the history and the situation going forward.

Meantime, be advised:

1. The actual Federal Constitution is called: The Constitution for the united States of America, adopted in 1787.  All members of the “States of America” organization are Federal States of States, also called “Confederate States” which have been mothballed since 1868.

2. The Territorial Constitution is called: “The Constitution of the United States of America” adopted in 1789 — notice the small “the”.  This version of “United States of America” is a British commercial corporation operated as a “Territorial Democracy”— which has been running the Federal District Government in the “absence” of our own Federal States of States— not be confused with our American Federation of States doing business as The United States of America.

3. The Municipal Constitution is called: “The Constitution of the United States” adopted in 1790. Notice that there is no reference to “of America” involved.  Notice also the small “the” as part of “the United States” — this municipal commercial corporation is not to be confused with The United States representing our republican states. 

In an ideal world, the States of The United States doing business as The United States of America own and operate the Federal States of States (also called Confederate States), and the Territories naturally belonging to The United States are administered by British Territorial subcontractors prior to their inclusion as States in The United States of America federation, and the only Municipal Government in this country is controlled and limited to stay and operate exclusively within the District of Columbia by the Territorial Government.

You can now see how very far we have strayed and how potentially catastrophic this situation is without your prompt attention and participation in your own history and your own State Jural Assembly. 

At the very beginning we noted that because the word “Federal” can be used in many contexts and can be applied to any part of any federation, it lends itself to various kinds and levels of deception.

In the course of this 150 year debacle, both the Territorial and Municipal Governments have represented themselves as “the” Federal Government and they have been allowed to do so because they are part of the Federal Government.  This then, has led everyone to assume that the actual Federal Government in sum total, including the Federal Branch of the Federal Government, was still in operation long, long after the Civil War ended and the Federal States of States were due to be “reconstructed”. 

Also, other entities having commercial contracts with either the Territorial or Municipal Governments, like the Federal Reserve, have made a “claim by association” to be “federal” entities, when in fact they have no relationship with the Federal Branch of the Federal Government, nor with our Federation of States doing business as The United States of America.

The Federal Reserve is as “federal” as Federal Express.  So is the FBI.

For All The Jural Assemblies – 29 The Confederation of States


By Anna Von Reitz

Both the word “state” and the word “of” need special attention when we read.

The word “state” can represent a multitude of things.  It can refer to a state of mind, or the soil jurisdiction of your natural state, or your landed State of the Union, or, as too often happens, the word “state” can be used as short hand for something that properly needs to be called a “state of state”. 

We have the Federal “States of States” also being called “Confederate States” almost from the moment The Articles of Confederation were signed in 1781.

Please duly note this confusion and know that “Confederate States” are not “States” in the same way nor existing in the same jurisdiction as our land jurisdiction “States”. They are instead “States of States” which are entirely fictional and disconnected from the world of fact.  

The word “of” creates a separation between “States” like Maine and “States of States” like The State of Maine, which was the original Federal State of State for Maine.  That is also to say that The State of Maine was the original Confederate State created under The Articles of Confederation in 1781, two years before the end of the Revolutionary War.

About now we have people scratching their heads.  What? Confederate States during the Revolutionary War? 

Yes.  Contrary to what most of us have been taught or left to assume, Confederate States, more properly and less confusingly called Federal States of States, existed and operated long before the so-called Civil War.

In the case before us, the word “of” also implies ownership.  The State of Maine (a Confederation State) belongs to Maine (a Federation State) and Maine belongs to the People of Maine.

A State of State is not a State. 

A State of State is a commercial business entity operating in the Global Municipal Jurisdiction.  It is pure legal fiction — a fiction created by a fiction.  In this case, Maine created The State of Maine.

Let’s review the process:

The living people of a state come together to form a State Jural Assembly, and this group operating in the capacity of “People” — that is, elected Officials, hired Officers, Jurors, and Electors of the State Jural Assembly– create their State, for example, Maine.

“Maine” is a complete State, because it is not entirely fictional.  The State of Maine is called an “incomplete State” or an “inchoate State” because it is entirely fictional, having no express material boundaries or location in space.

Maine is geographically defined and has substance and assets.  At the same time it is “corporate” and a legal fiction in the sense that it has a fictitious and arbitrary Proper Name: “Maine” only stands for the land and soil of Maine because that is the name the People of Maine chose.  They could have chosen to call their estate “Wamsutta” and we could have The State of Wamsutta to deal with instead.

So…..

The United States is composed of unincorporated republican states like “wisconsin”, doing business as The Wisconsin Republic (national soil) and The Republic of Wisconsin (national surface water), and it is populated by living people using Proper Names like: James Woodby.  

The United States of America is composed of unincorporated but “corporate” States like Ohio, doing business as Ohio (international land and sea) and is inhabited by the People of Ohio, that is, living people acting as Lawful Persons, and populated by these Lawful Persons using Proper Names like: James Allen Woodby. 

The States of America is composed of incorporated States of States like The State of Pennsylvania, doing commercial business in the global municipal jurisdiction of the air.

The state (soil and surface water) gives rise to the State (international land and sea) which gives rise to the State of State (global municipal jurisdiction). 

The people of a country populate its soil and surface water jurisdiction and they give rise to the People, Lawful Persons, populating States operating in the international jurisdiction of the land and sea, and thence, the Lawful Persons give rise to Legal Persons inhabiting States of States operating in the global municipal jurisdiction of the air and commerce.

Actual living people acting as Lawful Persons create States, but States then create States of States populated by Legal Persons, so at each stage of this process we observe increasing “fictionalization”. 

We go from actual and factual to airy fairy in three basic steps: state > State > State of State, and from living person to Lawful Person to Legal Person in the same three steps.

As you will note, the State level is the last connection to the actual, factual world we know.  After that, its all fiction and fictions creating more fictions, spinning off endless “doing business as” Legal Personas. 

It’s in this completely fictional realm of the global municipal air jurisdiction that the States of America was created to function in 1781.  The members of this “perpetual union” of “Confederate States” were “States of States” belonging to our States and operating in the global municipal jurisdiction of the air—in commerce.

The Confederation of States, more properly, The Confederation of States of States, doing business as the States of America as of March 1, 1781, was composed of commercial businesses owned and operated by our States.

Maine owned and operated The State of Maine.
Virginia owned and operated The State of Virginia.
Georgia owned and operated The State of Georgia…

This is the way our American Government was already set up as of 1781, and with a little alteration caused by the adoption of the Constitutions, this is the way it was structured until after the Civil War when the Federal States of States went “Missing in Action”.

For All The Jural Assemblies – 28 Global Municipal Jurisdiction


By Anna Von Reitz

We could also call this section “From Trade to Commerce”.

When we engage in “peaceful national and international trade”, this is a private and natural right held under our own authority.  This is the realm in which we are supposed to use our “Good Name” also known as “Given Name” also known as “Trade Name” — the name that our Fathers and Mothers gave us at birth. 

We are naturally unincorporated and sovereign entities when we stand on the land and soil of our geographically defined states/States; however, when we venture into the international jurisdiction of the sea or upon the navigable inland waterways to engage in trade with corporations or people from other countries, we are considered to be acting as “Foreign Situs Trusts” temporarily under the care of the British Monarch who owes us safe passage, aid and assistance — so long as we are claiming our birthright political status as American State Nationals or American State Citizens.

If, however, we allow ourselves to be misrepresented as Federal Citizens of any sort, no such guarantees apply; the same Name applied to a Federal Citizen may be mistaken for a “stateless Person” — and stateless Persons can be attacked, salvaged, and plundered under the Laws of the Sea. 

So, how does this work?  All Federal Citizens are “stateless Persons” of one kind or another, because their “states” are all “inchoate states” — incomplete, non-physical, incorporated franchises of —from our perspective, foreign governments and foreign commercial corporations. 

These corporate franchises  are foreign first and foremost because they are not functioning as people.  They are functioning as legal fiction “Persons”. 

The instant that your State National political status is stolen from you as a baby, and your Good Name is misidentified as that of a “US Citizen”, you are labeled as a “Federal Citizen” and deprived of all the protections and guarantees and property rights you are heir to.  You and your estate can be pillaged and salvaged, and the Queen, who is supposed to be acting as your Protector won’t say a thing; indeed, she will laugh all the way to the bank.  

This is because Federal Citizens have no Natural and Unalienable rights and their inchoate States (properly called “States of States”) are not Parties to our Constitutions and other Treaties with Great Britain. 

Only the actual geographically-defined States and physical People have access to the constitutional guarantees as intended.  States of States and Incorporated Persons are not generally “covered” by these agreements.  

So when we claim our proper birthright political status as American State Nationals or American State Citizens, our business is our own on the land and soil of our State, and when we venture out in the wider world, we are under the protection of the British Queen.

If we do not claim our proper birthright political status and wind up identified as a Federal Citizen of some kind, we are considered temporary residents on the land and soil of our own State, we are unable to actually own our own land, and we have no constitutional guarantees — only duties to perform.

This circumstance above all others underlines the advantage and importance of claiming/retaining your birthright political status. 

This is just the first round — what happens to us when we are innocently engaging in international trade and are mistaken-accidentally-on-purpose for Federal Citizens; there is another level to this same basic identity theft/misrepresentation scam that occurs when we enter the global realm of commerce and are “mistaken” for fully incorporated entities: PERSONS.

In the international land jurisdiction where our States of the Union naturally abide, there are no living people; instead, we function as People — State Citizens are functioning as Officials and Officers of our States — Jurors, Sheriffs, Justices, Electors,  and so on, while State Nationals function as Inheritors and may also be Electors. 

In the global municipal jurisdiction there are no people, either, just fully incorporated commercial corporations chartered by various governments, operating under the names of people, e.g., JOHN PHILIP SOUZA, as well as more familiar commercial corporations like GENERAL ELECTRIC.

The Municipal Jurisdiction is Global in nature and is organized as separate Municipalities that operate as International City States and charter all these fully incorporated commercial corporations.  Municipal Jurisdiction is also called the “Empire of the City”, meaning Rome under the auspices of the Holy Sea, and since 1929, Vatican City, which has set up and operated all the Municipal Charters on Earth.

This model of government is based on the plenary oligarchy of Ancient Rome, under the Caesars, which established independent City-States and Roman Territories throughout the world. 

The Municipality of Washington, DC is set up as a plenary oligarchy run by members of the Municipal United States Congress under Article 1, Section 8, Clause 17. It is an independent, international City-State created under a Municipal Charter doing business as “the” United States, run in turn by a Municipal Corporation, doing business as the Municipal Corporation of the District of Columbia.  The District of Columbia itself is meanwhile operated  as a Territorial Democracy doing business as “the” United States of America.

Similar independent international City-State organizations have been chartered all over the world, some of the principle members that boast their own flags are the Municipality of Washington, DC, the Inner City of London, Vatican City, the United Nations, and the City of New York.  These chartered municipal entities engage in international affairs and international trade, and then go one step further and charter franchises for themselves known as commercial corporations, or PERSONS.

Thus, the Municipal Corporation of the District of Columbia, a “doing business name of” the Municipality of Washington, DC, an independent international City-State doing business as the “United States” (Incorporated) has chartered the UNITED STATES, CANADA, DETROIT, JOHN PHILIP SOUZA, WESTMINSTER, PENNSYLVANIA….over a 185,000 such Municipal franchises, plus, via its UNITED STATES franchise and its STATE OF MAINE and STATE OF TEXAS and other franchises—– hundreds of millions of “individual franchises” named after each and every one of us, have been created without our knowledge or consent.

The Global Municipal Jurisdiction is the realm of Commerce— which is business between two fully incorporated entities–meaning that these entities are not just “Legal Fictions”.  They are LEGAL FICTIONS created and chartered by other Legal Fictions/LEGAL FICTIONS and are another step or two or three removed from the realm of actual living people.

A wide variety of Legal Persons can participate in International Trade, including unincorporated Mom and Pop American businesses called doing business under State National and State Citizen Names like “Lisa Ann Purdue” or “John’s Autobody Shop” or US Citizen Names like “John George Walton”.

Without firmly declared provenance recorded (Americans) or registered (US Citizens also known as Federal Citizens) the capacity in which any Person is acting is left up to presumption. 

Not surprisingly, the Queen’s Territorial henchmen have chosen to “presume” that we are not acting in our birthright capacity, are therefore owed no protection and no constitutional guarantees.  They have deliberately falsified the evidence in their favor by registering our Names and leaving us clueless that any of this was going on and equally clueless that we needed to declare and record our birthright political status as Americans.

The Municipal Government has been just as busy registering its own franchises in our NAMES.

As a result, we can, if we so wish, operate as British Territorial CITIZENS under the Spanish laws of the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico or we can operate as Municipal CITIZENS under the laws of the Municipality of Washington, DC…. or as Citizens of the United States (Municipal Franchise) or as United States Citizens (Territorial Franchise) or we can say “No” to all this fraudulent undisclosed identity theft  and operate as we are meant to operate, by declaring our natural birthright political status, exercising our own country’s sovereignty, and enforcing the actual Constitution owed to us.

Please note that the Municipal United States is specifically limited to the ten miles square of Washington, DC, and the purpose of letting Congress run the City as a plenary oligarchy in the first place was to provide an equal meeting ground — not to launch a competing “commercial” government made out of paper and hot air and false claims in commerce.

The responsibility for these travesties lies both upon the members elected to serve “as” delegates to unstipulated “Congresses”, and upon the foreign governments and governmental services corporations that have allowed, promoted, and profited from these activities. 

The unrestrained corruption of the Municipal United States Congress is also the particular responsibility of the Roman Catholic Church and the Holy Roman Empire which issued the Municipal Charter(s) and failed to oversee them.  As this is written, many key Municipal Charters have been revoked and the offending corporations have been or are being liquidated for cause; however, the same guilty parties running these crime syndicates as “service organizations” have been allowed to re-apply for new Municipal Charters and to shelter their ill-gotten gains, so that a true Good Faith correction is lacking.

By substituting foreign corporate franchises — in effect, their own “Persons” / “PERSONS”— to replace and usurp upon the living American People, our States, and our lawful Persons, these criminals have endeavored to steal our identities one-by-one, to falsely indebt us and accrue debt against our public and private assets, to set up a gigantic national mortgage fraud, and to embezzle trillions of dollars out of our country’s economy

Again, although this is a summary discussion, it should be clear to any American that there is compelling reason and advantage in reclaiming and retaining our birthright political status as American State Nationals and American State Citizens—- and very significant adverse consequences from allowing anyone to consider you a Municipal CITIZEN, as all Municipal CITIZENS are by definition debtors, criminals—- and slaves because they are criminals.

See the 13th and 14th Amendments to the Territorial Constitution made by the Scottish corporation doing business as “The United States of America” (Incorporated) in 1868.

For All The Jural Assemblies – 27 International Jurisdiction


By Anna Von Reitz

One of the most important things to remember is that in America and for purpose of the American Government, the word “interstate” is completely synonymous with the word “international”.  This is because each State is in fact its own country and its own nation. 

For the sake of streamlining certain functions and creating uniformity in some areas to bulwark our strength (such as military operations and expenses) and to expedite free trade (such as interstate banking services) our States have agreed to act together as members of an unincorporated Federation of States known as The United States of America — but each and every “power” that this Holding Company has or can delegate derives from the member States and powers which they intrinsically possess.  And the member States remain sovereign. 

As we saw, the national soil jurisdiction is controlled by unincorporated republican states which are members of The United States. 

The international jurisdiction is controlled by unincorporated States which are members of The United States of America, a Federation of States

The international jurisdiction controlled by your State has three components, air, land, and sea. 

We have discussed the international land jurisdiction of the States briefly and described it generally as the thick layer of rock and material underlying the top six inches of soil. Land obviously includes your State’s mineral and groundwater resources. The international land jurisdiction of your State is also
able to appear in some contexts above the soil — as it does when we build railroads and post roads and post offices and interstate highways and interstate electrical services. 

These are transit lanes and service stations on land analogous to sea lanes and docks in the jurisdiction of the sea– resulting in routes and infrastructure that have been created to deliver interstate/international or global services within your State.  Because this interstate/international infrastructure is within the borders of your State such facilities remain under State control, but because of their international nature and their role as part of the connecting service web other States depend on, they fall under your State’s international land jurisdiction and function under international law.

Both the railroads and the post offices have been used to promote various in-roads against local law and control. Many States have allowed these foreign international entities to exercise the right of Eminent Domain, for example, which allows them to “condemn” public and private property –essentially commandeering it– to allow construction of infrastructure.   

Thus, these enterprises have been allowed to abuse both public and private property owners for their own benefit using the excuse that the Public Good they provide outweighs the loss to other’s property rights.

Similar arguments have been advanced with less success to excuse the imposition of “property taxes” on landowners within each State to pay for public services, such as snow removal on pubic roads. This places a disproportionate and arbitrary burden on the landlords that is non-consensual and is in fact an unlawful conversion of property rights.

The Territorial State of State that is functioning in a “care-taking” capacity and mandating these practices in our States of the Union has no actual authority to impose upon the States and People in this way, and instead of presuming upon the landlords should be paying back dividends and lease fees and compensating the States and People for the use of their resources. 

An examination of the Comprehensive Annual Financial Reports of each Territorial and Municipal State-of-State organization reveals that the income these organizations receive from the use of our State resources each year is far in excess of all expenses and that largess should, logically, be available to pay for public services such as snow removal and fire departments without any additional taxation.  However, without active and competent input from the State Jural Assemblies, the For-Hire State of State employees and their corporate legislatures have padded their own pension plans instead.

The Checks and Balances System has been totally out of whack in this country because the State Jural Assemblies have not been meeting regularly, have not weighed in on the deployment of State income, have not protected private property rights, have not insisted on the enforcement of the Public Law, and haven’t been doing their job representing the interests of the actual State and People.

Also, because these interstate/international businesses are operating in international jurisdiction but are interfacing directly with our State’s soil jurisdiction, there are conflicts of law that result. 

The most visible  part of this conflict of law arises from the fact that these private and international business organizations functioning under international law have been allowed to employ “Pinkertons” — private law enforcement agencies — within the boundaries of each State, and these LEO organizations have proliferated and been hired as subcontractors in other venues to substitute for actual peacekeeping officials and officers.

Law enforcement officers are, generally speaking: (1) not familiar with the Public Law, having been trained to enforce the “code and statutory law” of the international jurisdiction instead; and (2) are not properly directed to enforce the Public Law, even when they are hired to do so.

These private security agencies have become abusive and have failed to recognize the fact that the People of the State are living under the Public Law and, except when they are actually on a train, in a post office, or otherwise in direct contact with these limited international land jurisdiction functions–railroads, electrical power line right of ways, post offices, etc., the living People of each State are not subject to international law within the boundaries of their States.

Territorial State of State employees and Municipal STATE OF STATE employees, are subject to international law, but the States and People are not — until and unless we directly interface with a railroad, post office, or other interstate/international utility — for example, we rob a Post Office, vandalize a power pole, or commit murder on a railroad right of way.  

The Territorial and Municipal organizations in each State have discovered that they can make money by arresting people and filling up prison facilities, which has led to the proliferation of more and more oppressive statutory “laws” and burgeoning prison populations. 

This Prisons for Profit scheme is a direct affront to our sovereignty in which People of each State are deliberately mischaracterized as Territorial or Municipal “Persons”, held to be subject to Territorial and/or Municipal international law, and incarcerated at our expense. This is not only an abuse of our People, it is an abuse of our Purses by our employees.

They are profiting themselves by arresting us under color of law, charging us under statutory laws we are not naturally obligated to obey, and then charging our States for the service of putting us in jail.   

More abuses include registration and copyrighting of our private Given Names as property belonging to State of State and/or Municipal STATE OF STATE organizations, conferring of Federal citizenship obligations via unconscionable contracts, seizure, manipulation, and patenting of our unique DNA, securitization of living people as assets belonging to these organizations, and the bonding of public and private property belonging to our States and People for the debts of these “state of state” organizations.

These are actions readily recognizable as crimes that have been going on in our country for decades via the abuse of our State’s international jurisdiction.

This has only been made possible because our trusting people have been deliberately kept unaware of the false claims being made against them by their employees, and our State Jural Assemblies have not assembled and kept watch on the proverbial store.  

The international sea jurisdiction belonging to each State varies according the individual State’s location and geography.  Thanks to the Great Lakes and abundant large navigable rivers, plus sea coasts on three sides of our country, most States have ample and direct access to the transport of goods and services via these natural conduits. 

Generally speaking, the British Monarch is supposed to be acting as the Trustee of all Americans and all American shipping on the High Seas and Navigable Inland Waterways, and as such, our States should not have a great deal to worry about — however, as more and more Americans have unwittingly allowed themselves to be mischaracterized as Territorial or Municipal “citizens” instead of reclaiming/retaining their birthright political status, the British Monarchs have been encouraged to escape their duty owed to the States and People, and eager to profit themselves from the States of States and Persons, instead.

The Coast Guard owed to each seaboard State has been allowed to run amok and been privatized and misdirected similar to what has gone on with the hired law enforcement officers being used to substitute for peacekeeping officials and Officers of the Law.   As a result, the Coast Guard has become a clearinghouse for smuggling and theft from the States and People instead of a bulwark in our defense. 

Port Authorities have similarly been employed in the interests of international crime and exportation of Americans, both literally and figuratively, along with our resources, using ports of entry and “Free Trade Zones” established in virtually every State. 

The international air space owed to each State has similarly been abused to favor international business interests and placed the profits of these commercial interests above any benefit owed to the States and People of this country.  We are constantly bombarded with false advertising and propaganda from foreign sources clogging up our public air waves, and no effort is being made to impose any better standards. 

Media monopolies have become common and other monopolies have grown up uninhibited by the proper application of Public Interest anti-trust and anti-monopoly legislation.  Although these issues often bridge upon commerce rather than international trade, the State Jural Assemblies have a potent voice that needs to be heard in Washington, DC, and elsewhere.

What goes on in our States is fundamentally under the authority and control of the People of each State, so this is all hash that we need to settle with our employees and service providers and international Trustees. 

In order to do our job, we have to choose to act in our birthright political capacity as one of the People of our State of the Union, and make public declaration of this fact by recording our deliberate and permanent expatriation from any “presumed” federal citizenship obligation. 

If we fulfill our obligations as State Nationals and/or State Citizens and/or State Electors, we will have more than enough to do.

The members of our State Jural Assemblies have the critical role and function of nullifying unconstitutional and repugnant laws, upholding and enforcing the Public Law including the Constitutions, and controlling the soil (national) and land (international) jurisdictions of our State.

Beginning with the fact that we are not acting as Federal “Persons” and are not accepting any Federal “citizenship” obligations, for all the reasons cited above and far more beyond the scope of this small discussion, our State Jural Assemblies must act to direct the proper administration of the international land jurisdiction we are heir to, and to bring effective complaints to our federal service providers and international Trustees regarding the misuse and abuse of the international sea and air jurisdiction of our States. 

As brief as this discussion has been, the issues raised are compelling and should be enough to convince any American that effective action must be taken to restore the People and the States and the Public Law.

For All The State Jural Assemblies – 26 The National Jurisdiction: Soil


By Anna Von Reitz

In our discussion of the American Government that we are heir to, we identified three “unions” of various kinds of “states” that existed long prior to the creation of the Federal Government. 

They were and are:

The United States — a union of soil jurisdiction “landed (e)states”  formed by the former colonies via Unanimous Declaration issued July 1, 1776, published July 4, 1776. This is our “national jurisdiction”. Each state has defined geographical boundaries.

The United States of America – a federation of Land Jurisdiction States formed September 9, 1776 for the purpose of joint operations in international jurisdiction, including the international land and sea jurisdictions. This is our international jurisdiction. Each State has defined geographical boundaries.

The States of America — a confederation of inchoate “States of States” formed under The Articles of Confederation, March 1, 1781, for the purpose of conducting the business of the States in global commercial jurisdiction.  These “Federal States of States” have no defined geographical boundaries and exist only on paper.  (These are the “Missing” Federal States of States.)

Please note — all this is our American Government, which existed prior to and which created the Federal Government as an “instrumentality” to provide services to the States and People of this country.

Let’s look briefly at our “national jurisdiction” — the soil jurisdiction of each state in The United States.

Imagine the familiar outline of your State of the Union.  Got it? 

Now pretend you are slicing it like a layer cake horizontally, taking the top six inches of the soil off.  It has the same outline and shape, but not much depth. 
This is your state’s national soil jurisdiction.

We call all the rest underneath the soil “the land”. The land is also shaped exactly like the outline of your State of the Union, but it is a much thicker layer, miles deep, and it forms your State’s international land jurisdiction.  

Together we call this “the land and soil” of your State of the Union.  The two jurisdictions — the national soil jurisdiction state and the international Land Jurisdiction State — are both geographically defined and both work together hand in glove.

So, what does the “national” soil jurisdiction of your State do and how does it operate? 

The first thing it does is guarantee local control. 

This is the level of the “state republics” and “republican states” guaranteed by the constitutional contracts.

The soil level states are seldom referenced in print, but when they are, they appear in all small letters: maine, virginia, florida, etc.  These are the member states of The United States.

When we are born we all enter the world via the soil jurisdiction of our state, and are in the political status of a “man of the soil” known as “jus soli” or a “state national”. 

This determines our basic nationality. We are, for example, “virginians” and because we are “virginians” we are also considered “Virginians”.  This in turn identifies us as “Americans” for international purposes.  

When we are born, we are not “citizens” of anything.

Being a “citizen” implies an obligation to serve a government.  It is patently ridiculous to claim that a newborn baby has an obligation to serve any government, nonetheless, certain disreputable governmental services corporations have made exactly such claims against babies born in America for several generations. This is part of what we need to address.

It is the “jus soli” status of the baby that leads to the political status at the State level of State National.  Neither one have any obligation to serve any government at all; they are required to obey the Public Law and keep the peace and other than that, they are free as birds.

The basic dictum of the national soil jurisdiction is, “Harm none and be harmed none.”

Likewise, the republic states and their state republics are seldom referenced in print and even more seldom are they officially populated and used to conduct business — but they can be.  This results in a quorum of state nationals opting to act as state citizens, and invoking the national soil jurisdiction of their State of the Union to conduct national-level business.

For these purposes, Texas is a nation.  Pennsylvania is a nation. 

The soil jurisdiction also includes surface water, so each state republic also has a republic of state attached to it, and for business purposes, you have  “The Texas Republic” operating the soil jurisdiction of Texas and “The Republic of Texas” operating the surface water jurisdiction of Texas.

All of these entities are unincorporated and operate as unincorporated businesses. 

They are owned and operated by the people who are native to Texas and those who have been “naturalized”.

Naturalization at the State level is a process of having a home inside the borders of the State for at least a year and a day, without committing any felonies or taking public assistance, and firmly declaring on the public record your desire and intention (after meeting the basic requirements) to make that State your permanent home.

In the old days this was done by taking out three small ads in the local papers over a period of 90 days, and there is still no obstruction to doing this now.  In this way, a guy from Florida can adopt Texas as his home, for example, or a “U.S. Citizen” born in Croatia or Washington, DC, can become a Minnesotan.

Obviously, the soil is like the skin on a body.  By owning and controlling the skin, the local people retain the vast majority of the power of government if they act in their proper capacity and organize to do so.  Everyone is standing on the soil, so the power of arrest basically belongs to the soil jurisdiction and the republican state authorities and their county/County Sheriffs.

However, operating the Soil and Land jurisdictions of our States of the Union requires us to forswear and expatriate from any other citizenship, including any federal citizenship.

Most Americans do not realize that they have been kidnapped on paper into a foreign jurisdiction and misidentified as either “United States Citizens” or “Citizens of the United States” or “US CITIZENS” almost from birth, a circumstance that keeps us from actually owning land and controlling our own assets. 

In fact, most States of the Union became severely de-populated prior to this current effort, simply because people didn’t realize that they were the victims of unconscionable contracting activities by their own employees.

Coming home to the “land and soil” of your State means that you are eligible to inherit all that you have been deprived of, that you come under the Public Law, instead of any private “Statutory Law”, that you can exercise local control of your land and surface water resources, and that you can operate your “republican states” —that is, the national soil jurisdiction of your State of the Union, again. 

So long as you see the advantage of doing so and educate yourselves and declare your birthright political status— and work with others of like-mind to restore the “land and soil” jurisdiction government owed to this country— there isn’t a power on Earth than can stop you from inheriting and controlling what is rightfully yours.
