Bessie, Answers, and Miracles

 By Anna Von Reitz

Ever had one of those weeks when nothing goes right?  Everything is “off”? Everyone feels out of sorts and  just on the edge of angry or nauseous or both?  And also just plain tired out, drained, and exhausted, too? 

My week, and welcome to it….. but…. like rays of sunshine through dark clouds, things also started to turn around this week.  The pendulum hit its zenith and began its long sweep in the other direction.

People often ask me, with looks of incredulity on their faces, “Don’t you know how difficult what you are proposing is?  That we, average people, should run the government?”

Yes, I know. 

I also know that that is what we are supposed to be doing, what our tradition demands, what our Law depends upon, and what we have to do if we want to have a country left to stand on. 

So I blink and nod and go right on, objections duly noted. But in my dire moments, I do pause and reflect.  I do look heavenward and ask: how are we supposed to do this? Against such overwhelming odds?

The answer came back to me this week: love is what makes all things possible.

I found myself at the Post Office, relieving my son of his usual duty as mail carrier this past Thursday, when three boxes came in — one from California, and one from Indiana and one from Washington. Two contained donated parts for my 1991 Ford Explorer. And one was, mysteriously, a box full of small envelopes.

After several weeks spent with my Ford Explorer on death’s doorstep for lack of a single hydraulic hose and some fittings, I held both hose and fittings in hands, and simply “knew” that Bessie, my old Explorer, had another lease on life — thanks to people living in far distant places, people I’ve never met, who cared and who sent the parts she needed when I couldn’t find them here for life nor money.

She’ll probably run another 400,000 miles.

I went directly from the Post Office to the garage.  The mechanics stopped what they were doing and came jog-trotting toward me, eyes widening, lips pursing —- was it possible?  It was! 

They took the parts and turned them over and over in their hands and looked at each other and looked at me and let out a whoop and started dancing around—– yes!  Against all odds, here it was, the “impossible” phantom hydraulic hose, the “miracle”.

I glanced across the garage lot at Bessie, the blue sky beginning to break through the clouds behind her, the coating of gold birch leaves on her hood. She has been sitting there for a month, immobile, frozen in place, but on Monday her faithful mechanics — who have worked on her for twenty years and treat her as a family pet — will begin refitting her fuel lines.

Thank you, I whispered, to the men who located the parts and spent their own money to buy them and send them to me.  It really was better than any Christmas I remember.  Thank you, I whispered again, to the Love that propelled them to take action, to look for the parts, and to send them.

Miracles happen, yes, they regularly do. 

Then, I went home, and found another miracle waiting for me.

A whole box full of thank you notes, and most of them with small donations, too, from one of our State Assemblies. They somehow sensed the need here. When they held their regular meeting, as part of the agenda, they took up a Special Collection for the Gipper. I sat at my kitchen table and opened up each small note and read each message at least twice, looking at each name.

There were notes from young children with $1 tucked inside— and notes from single parents who didn’t have even a dollar to send, notes from small businessmen, notes from housewives, notes from other grandparents….
and I noticed that they were beginning to think of their counties, too, as many of them signed their names and their counties, as well as their State. 

Afterward, I just sat and stared into space for a few minutes, the pile of opened notes and the pile of cash on the table in front of me, knowing that Heaven had answered my question— how are we supposed to restore the rightful government of this country, against such overwhelming odds? 

With love. With caring. With our simple actions, all added up.  With our motivation to look and see and do things in support of our country, and our rightful government, and each other.  That’s how miracles happen.

I nodded to myself and to the Good Lord.  Love for this country.  Love for what’s right. Love for each other.  Against that, no hordes of scheming corporatists can succeed. Against that, no amount of money or technology can prevail.

And I drew a deep breath and felt completely blessed and centered again, ready to go on and face the day.  Love is how we restore this country and everyone in it.  No need for tons of money.  No need for corporate power.

Just boot up your State Assemblies and go with God.

Assemblies of Different Kinds

 By Anna Von Reitz

There are multiple kinds of “Assemblies”.

Most of you are familiar with “District Assemblies” and think nothing of it when you drive past an election season placard advertising “Dean Simpson for Assembly District 4!”

You should think about it when you hear or see the word “district” attached to anyone or anything, because “district” refers to the District Government, as in District of Columbia, whether it is an “Assembly District” or a “School District” or a “District Attorney” or a “District Court”.

Our country is not meant to function under a district system of government and we are not naturally nor generally subject to any such district government; instead, we and our country are supposed to be functioning under a county and state system of government.

We should be seeing County School Boards, not District School Boards.

So now that you’ve noticed the difference, you’ll notice that in addition to District Assemblies, you also have Municipal Assemblies and politicians running to fill those seats, too. So what is going on here?

Our Federal Employees, both District and Municipal, are usurping upon us, pretending to “represent” us, and to some extent, pretending to be us.

To make matters more confusing, these Federal Interlopers have formed State-level franchise operations, and they are operating their own “State-of-State” (Territorial) and STATE-OF-STATE (Municipal) organizations, too.

So you will see “State of Wisconsin” Assemblies, and “STATE OF ILLINOIS” ASSEMBLIES, too. But none of these are your actual, honest-to-God, State Assemblies.

These Federal and Federated organizations are usurping their own units of government onto our land and soil, and “offering” to take over and run everything, including us, into the ground, in behalf of foreign interests.

As of five years ago, our actual Assemblies started popping up: State Assemblies, and they are being followed by County Assemblies.

These are our assemblies, of, for, and by the people of this country—- not “district”, not “municipality”, and not “state-of-state” organizations.

Which assembly do you belong to?

If you are a Federal District employee or dependent, you should be joining your District Assembly.

If you are a Municipal employee or dependent, you should be joining your Municipal Assembly.

If you are a State of State employee or dependent, you should be joining your State of State Assembly.

But if you are Joe Average American, you should not be participating in their elections or having anything to do with these foreign incorporated organizations.

You should be joining your own state and county assemblies and supporting them with all your might.

Our government of the land and soil is a republican government of, for, and by the people of this country. You are being called to come home and self-govern.

Unlike the professional politicians and their foreign systems of government that are under contract to provide us with stipulated government services, the actual government of this country isn’t in Session all the time.

However, when our government comes into Session, via our assembly process, it holds the ultimate jurisdiction and power over the land and soil of this entire country.

We are not a “democracy” — that’s the sea-going District Government, extending its tentacles where they don’t belong. We enjoy “freedom” — not “liberty” which is something given to British sailors when they come to port.

So-called “American Democracy” is actually British Territorial Democracy; our Forefathers rejected democracy and chose a republican government instead.

We are certainly not a “city state” nor a “sanctuary city” government, either — that ‘s the foreign Municipal Holy Roman Empire concept of government, and it shouldn’t even exist outside the boundaries of Washington, DC.

Finally, a State of State is just a business organization doing business of some kind for a State, not the State itself.

So, listen up.

Unless you are a Federal Employee, chances are that you have been “in the right church, but the wrong pew” —and participating in the wrong assembly organization for lack of knowing better, and for lack of your assembly being present to join.

That is all changing now, as your government is now in Session.

Go to: to get started on the pathway to self-governance and sanity in government.

Our Employees have been ruling over us. That’s why everything is upside down and backwards. That’s why the tail is wagging the dog. That’s how the petty bureaucrats act as little gods, misapplying all their own codes, regulations, and statutes to their Employers.

And if you are sick of it, well, then, it is past time to get off your duffs, declare your birthright political status, and take up the job of self-governance that you are heir to. Join your actual State Assembly— not a “State of State” Assembly, not a District Assembly, and not a Municipal Assembly, either.

Look for the one that is plain and simple and also most powerful: The Ohio Assembly, The Wisconsin Assembly, The Utah Assembly, et alia.

Remember: you are the Employer. They are the Employees. You don’t belong to their organizations, and they don’t belong to yours.

Coordinator’s Handbook — Chapter 5

 By Anna Von Reitz

The Missing Citizens

Thus far we have covered the two active Federal citizenship statuses– Territorial and Municipal, American State National status, and American State Citizen status- a total of four (4) possible political statuses, two of which are foreign and “Federal”, and two of which are American.

There is a third Federal political status possible.  Pay close attention. 

What we have reviewed so far are: (1) Territorial United States Citizens known as “U.S. Citizens” and (2) Municipal United States citizens known as “citizens of the United States.  

These two foreign political statuses may be adopted temporarily when you take a federal job, as a condition of employment.

When you enter the U.S. Military, for example, you acquire (whether you know it or not) the Territorial political status: U.S. Citizen.  

When you enter Federal Civil Service, for example, working for the Post Office or the FBI, you become a “citizen of the United States”, otherwise known as a “Fourteenth Amendment citizen”.  

This is a particularly troubling status, as it involves involuntary enslavement and servitude as chattel backing the debts of the Municipal Oligarchy allowed under Article 1, Section 8, Clause 17.
The Papist Municipal Government sided with the South in the Civil War — and lost; the British Territorial Government sided with the North, and won.  Therefore, in the immediate aftermath, the victors were intent on collecting war reparations from the South — and from the Federal Municipal Employees.  

To expedite this process, they redefined Municipal “citizens of the United States” as publicly-owned slaves.   

The victors also “latched upon” the freed plantation slaves as human chattel that was purportedly cast adrift and subject to “salvage” when the South collapsed— and included them in the new slave class known as “Fourteenth Amendment citizens”.  

As we have seen, the referenced “Fourteenth Amendment” was in fact made to a look-alike, sound-alike corporate charter for a Scottish Commercial Corporation doing business as “The United States of America, Incorporated” issued in 1868.   

This deceitful document was published as “The Constitution of the United States of America” — Incorporated— underline the word “Incorporated” which was conveniently left off —-and used to substitute for the actual Territorial Constitution, because the actual Constitution could not be altered unilaterally by the Perpetrators of this criminal fraud scheme. 

As far as we have been able to determine, none of the “Amendments” to this document were ever duly ratified by the States of the Union as required to be true Amendments to any actual Constitution —- and though called “Amendments” these new definitions which were applied both to freed Negroes and other plantation slaves and to Federal Civil Service Employees —were in fact only By-Laws added to the disguised corporate charter.

Using this Flim-Flam, the Perps created an entire new subclass of Federal “citizens” who were in fact enslaved to pay off war debts.

So, we have these two basic Federal citizenships still in operation, Territorial U.S. Citizens, and Municipal “citizens of the United States” — bearing in mind that the political status of Municipal citizens was profoundly altered and downgraded after the Civil War — but the real subject of this Chapter is a Third Federal “Citizenship” that should be present, and isn’t. 

The Confederation formed under The Articles of Confederation in 1781, was formed by American States-of-States, which were business organizations formed to conduct business for the States themselves. In the run up to adoption of the three (3) Federal Constitutions, the Confederation organized a new business entity, the States of America. 

The States of America is otherwise known as the Federal Republic. 

The Federal Republic is the American portion of the Federal Government, but because it was created by and run by the Confederation, it has been out of commission since 1860, when the Confederation itself was torn apart by the Southern Secession. 

Both the Confederation and the States of America have been “held in abeyance” and “presumed to be in interregnum” ever since. 

Let’s review:

Our States of the Union are populated by American State Nationals and American State Citizens. 

The Territories, including the Insular States (DC, Guam, Puerto Rico, et alia)  are inhabited by British Territorial U.S. Citizens.  

The Municipal United States Government formed under Article 1, Section 8, Clause 17, is inhabited by “citizens of the United States” as described above.

The States of America, also known as the Federal Republic, are inhabited by a third variety of Federal Citizen known as United States Citizens. 

This political status, together with the numerous requirements that an American must undertake to enter into it, are established by an act of Congress (not an Act of Congress) dated April 14, 1802, 2 Statute-at-Large 153, Chapter 28, Subsection 1.  This act very clearly describes what we, Americans, must do to become Federal Citizens — “and not otherwise”.  

In other words, we can’t be Federal Citizens of any kind, unless we go through the prescribed process and become United States Citizens —- we are not eligible to be U.S. Citizens, nor “citizens of the United States”, so far as our government is concerned.   

We can only be United States Citizens, and hold Dual Political Status as United States Citizens/American State Nationals while working for the united States of America.

This third, missing kind of Federal Citizen, will reappear upon the reconstruction of the Confederation and the States of America, aka, the Federal Republic. 

Until then, it is enough for us to be aware that it exists, that the requirements to become this kind of Federal Citizen are established by the cited Statute-at-Large, and most important for our day-to-day lives: this Statute-at-Large prohibits any presumption by our Federal Employees that we, Americans, are any kind of Federal Citizen at all, absent our completion of the requirements of 2 Stat. 153, Chapter 28, Subsection 1.

The British Way

 By Anna Von Reitz

There have always been Tories in America.  There still are.  I have proof.  I get attacked by them, one way or another, every day that I live.  

These people come from many backgrounds including the obvious English scions, but they are united in their belief that anything that comes from England is superior. 

The mere idea that any upstart American colonists ever came up with anything better than being ruled over by a British Monarch is anathema too unsettling to consider.  Even briefly.  

Perhaps they fear that if they look, they’ll see?  

And see something that they don’t want to see?  

Which is the mean pettiness, cruelty, and guile that underlie the finer traditions of England?  

England is like a Favorite Son among the nations, but deeply flawed in character— so much so, that it is at the bottom of nearly every dogpile plaguing the modern world. 

The Mideast?   England. 

China as a threat?   England. 

Corporate Feudalism?   England. 

It’s hard to imagine how one tiny nation isolated on all sides by sea could possibly become a world power, much less a world destroyer.  One must chalk it up to the unique character and abilities of the people who live here. 

Here in America, the Tories have been entrenched since Day One.  They survived the Revolution very handily, thank you, with only a few high profile Tories feeling compelled to flee to England or Canada afterward.  

More important, they survived the Civil War, which they promoted and benefited from tremendously.  

Always remember that the [British] Territorial United States Government largely controls and influences our military, especially the US Navy, which sails under the British Monarch when it is on the High Seas and Navigable Inland Waterways.  And to a lesser extent, the Marine Corps and Coast Guard.  

There is a reason that Colin Powell was knighted by Queen Bess II.  

It’s not a good reason from the American point of view. 

This past week I have been engaged (again) in a discussion with British Legal Eagles about the nature and efficacy of British Law and the remedies available to Americans who choose to live under it.  

Those promoting the British System as is, which includes “voluntary” slavery and remedies that amount to healing our own wounds by indebting ourselves even more than their spending has already done — can’t seem to grasp the American perspective. 

Why can’t we be content to receive military script as money and recompense for all that has been done to us and stolen from us?  

As one of them put it to me — “It spends, doesn’t it?” 

He couldn’t quite grasp the fact that spending more of my own credit to make up for British graft wasn’t really a remedy in my view.  

He was equally abject when the glories of British “judicial discretion” were lost on me.  

“When obeying the Public Law becomes discretionary, you have no law,” I told him.  He fell silent for a moment, stumped on that one, but quickly deflected and finally, not to be defeated, offered — what is it that I want?  

“I want you fellows to obey your constitutional obligations,” I said flatly.  He cocked his head to one side, as if he’d been doing that all along.  So I spelled it out.  

When we, Americans, are on the High Seas and Navigable Inland Waterways, the British Monarch is our Trustee and is obligated to ensure our safe passage; this is similar to when crewmen and passengers board a ship and their safety becomes the captain’s responsibility.  

The same applies when entering “American” military bases and arsenals and similar installations.  Captain’s rules apply.  We all know that and take that for granted, but somehow miss the important point: this is a different kind of law, Admiralty Law, and it is literally a “foreign law” with respect to us civilians, as is all Federal Code and its Regulations, and all State-of-State Statutory Law. 

These are all “foreign law” with respect to us, and per the Constitutions, Amendment XI, Americans are not subject to foreign law. 

The only other instance where Americans are subject to foreign law is if they happen to be engaged in the manufacture, sale, or transportation of alcohol, tobacco or firearms across state lines. 

If the Brits were obeying the Constitutions with respect to us, they would not be “presuming” any form of British Law upon us, except in the aforementioned situations. 

So, I concluded, all I “want” is what you promised, that you honor your obligations under the Constitutions, and stop trying to traffic Americans into British Citizenship obligations and stop trying to subject us to British Law and Roman Civil Law, both.  

I haven’t heard a word back.  The silence is deafening.
