For All The Jural Assemblies -17 Clerks and Bondsmen

By Anna Von Reitz

There are two Offices in our Public Courts that derive from the ancient Ecclesiastical Courts: Clerks were originally Clerics and Bondsmen were Bondsmen of Christ. 

Clerks set the venue of court cases– that is, they determine where a case belongs, in which court and jurisdiction, and they assign it to a specific Judge, a Justice, or a Justice of the Peace to “shepherd” the proceedings. 

So the first duty of a Court Clerk is to recognize the kind of action being pursued and the nature of the people or the persons pursuing it, and thereby, to correctly direct it to the appropriate jurisdiction and the appropriate court within that jurisdiction. 

For many years now (since around 1965 in most places) Court Clerks have had no “People Courts” to refer people to.  All the Public Courts we are owed were unlawfully converted into private courts serving only “Persons” when our often disloyal and often clueless employees incorporated the Territorial States of States and then the Counties, and began operating them as local franchises of federal corporations in exchange for federal kickbacks. 

Now we have overcome the presumption and mistakes that led to this situation and are engaged in the process of setting up the Public Courts owed to the people of this country again.  To start, we will only be serving the members of State Jural Assemblies– because we are the only “people” to serve.

Everyone else has been reduced to “person-hood” via a process of adhesion contracts and non-disclosure and fraud. 

Unfortunately, until they all wake up and explicitly change their “presumed” political status, and join the State Jural Assembly, they are outside our jurisdiction just as they are outside of ours. 

Our Clerks have to turn away people who are coming to our courts seeking redress while still functioning as “foreign persons” on our shores. 

This can be determined simply by asking if they are members of a State Jural Assembly?  And by looking at the subject of the case. 

Does it involve one of the People? 

Does it involve things that occurred within the boundaries of our State or at the County level, inside our County?

Is it an issue that pertains to the land and soil and to actual, factual people and things?  That is our jurisdiction. 

Or is it something intangible and theoretical, like two corporations arguing over patent rights?  That is THEIR jurisdiction. 

A good Court Clerk can determine the jurisdiction of a case from determining the capacity in which parties to a case are acting, the nature of the controversy and what it involves as subject matter. 

Obviously, though a great many living  people have valid issues that need to be addressed– so long as they continue to act as “persons” instead of choosing to act as people, we are powerless to assist. 

If they continue to knowingly or unknowingly subject themselves to private incorporated courts –and be abused accordingly, there isn’t much, if anything we can do. 

JOHN O. KING vs. JOANN A.KING seeking a DIVORCE and voiding of their MARRIAGE LICENSE are two Municipal Corporations wanting to end a JOINT VENTURE ENTERPRISE and asking their parent corporation (the entity granting the license) and Silent Partner for permission to dissolve this business enterprise. 

There isn’t a living man or woman involved in that whole scenario. 

So even though it impacts two people and their children and everything they own, they can’t be treated as people because they didn’t act as people to begin with. 

To get out of this situation they would have to petition the entity issuing the Marriage License and give Notice that they made a mistake…. and annul the “marriage” instead of seeking a DIVORCE. 

A good Court Clerk operating a lawful Court as one of the People and a member of the State Jural Assembly can “observe the facts” though not offer “legal advice” since our lawful system is foreign to their legal system. 

Court Clerks also maintain meticulous records of all the paperwork involved in a case, assigning numbers to case records and keeping track as more paperwork and evidence comes in and is added to the court record. 

Land and soil jurisdiction Courts keep records.  Sea jurisdiction Courts keep files. 

Many Paralegals can readily fulfill the duties of Court Clerk once they are brought up to speed and understand that we are reopening Public Courts to serve the people (State Nationals) and People (State Citizens) of our State.  

Bondsmen are the land counterparts to the Bailiffs in sea jurisdiction courts. 

In early times the Ecclesiastical Courts had Bondsmen serve to keep order in the court, but even more, to serve in the capacity of “brother’s keeper”.  This is a role at the court level, to take charge of prisoners and ensure their safety and good conduct while in court. This role can also extend beyond the boundaries of the Court as Bondsmen may assist Sheriffs and other Public Law Officials in performance of their duties.   

Just as the Clerks determine venue and keep the records, Bondsmen maintain the security of the actual courtroom and direct traffic within it.  They may also seat people in the court gallery, help those who are physically injured or disabled, distribute educational information to members of the Jural Assembly, instruct people on how to post bonds –fees guaranteeing future performance of actions–that are retained and accounted for by the Court Clerk’s Office, and act in similar capacities.  A Bondsman may serve as a Witness to official paperwork and confirms the Bond Roster for each day the Court is in Session– he signs the list of Bonds set by the Court and confirms receipt of bonding fees together with the Court Clerk at close of the Court’s business each day. He secures and locks the safe containing the bond fees. 

The Bondsmen typically make a public affirmation declaring that he will serve the People of the State in Good Faith and Honor, to protect the Court and the Public, and to assist in providing and securing peace and justice for all. 

A similar simple Declaration (no Oaths, no “so help me God”– those are the for sea courts) applies to all Court Officials. 

A written copy of this Declaration is kept in the Court Clerk’s Office available for view along with the similar Declarations of the Justices and other officials. 

The Bondsman in a court is meant to be a reassuring figure for those participating in or witnessing the proceedings, as well as a stalwart protector of everyone concerned, including those accused of crimes. 

At first there will be only a small number of the People functioning as people (State National) and People (State Citizens) and it will take time for them to close out transactions that were purposefully or mistakenly undertaken in the capacity of persons.  

This affords the State Jural Assemblies the opportunity to get firmly established and work out the details and procedures and record-keeping before they are faced with an avalanche of caseloads. 

It is to be hoped that when presented with the facts and the history many members of the Bar Associations will revoke their memberships and choose to serve the Public Courts and the people of their States as Counselors in Law and also to be hoped that many Judges and Magistrates will accept actual Public Office as Justices and Justices of the Peace. 

The actual power of the Law is in the Public Law and in the Divine Law that underlies it. 

The shameful and indeed criminal misapplication of statutory law to people unconscionably kidnapped in its jurisdiction as babies cannot be condoned and cannot be continued.  

Each and every court case that is misaddressing living Americans in the NAME of such corporate franchises is evidence of crimes of personage and fraud against the Public Law and against our States and our People. 

Confronted with these facts those running and administering these foreign corporate Courts/COURTS on our shores must come to terms with the crimes and injustices they have perpetuated against millions of innocent people, and the damage they have secretively done to this country for their own profit.
