To Rodrigo Duterte, President of the Philippines

By Anna Von Reitz

There is a great deal of ignorance in the world today, President Duterte, and a great deal of dishonesty, too.

You have established a good reputation as a man with Common Sense and a love for Justice.

We pray that these merits of character will serve the world well in the present circumstance.

In 1898, the Scottish Commercial Corporation doing business “in our names” as “The United States of America, Inc.” used our money to buy the land mass of the Philippine Islands from the then-government. 

While this is an outrageous circumstance that one group of heirs would offer the portions and inheritance of the rest of their generation and all generations to come after, this transaction did actually take place, and not only in the Philippines.  We have the receipts.

Shortly thereafter, the same Scottish Commercial Corporation began removing large quantities of American gold to the Philippines for storage and what the Perpetrators called “safe-keeping”.

In 1934, the Successor and Secondary to this Scottish Commercial Corporation doing business in our names as “the United States of America, Inc.” was also in bankruptcy reorganization.  They pushed through an Act of their Congress creating an “independent government for the Philippines” so that the new Philippine Government could act as the Trustee of the American Gold cashiered away in the Philippines for storage. 

We have the record of that whole series of transactions, too.

In World War II, the Japanese invaded the Philippines and found the American gold in storage, whereupon it was mis-named “Yamashita’s Gold” when in fact it never belonged to Yamashita and didn’t belong to the Philippines, either. 

The Japanese General Yamashita, however, seized upon our gold and transported it all over the world, and especially throughout the Pacific Rim. 

Gold, as you know, has a unique signature depending on its source. Despite desperate efforts to mix and smelt our American gold with gold from other sources by parties in Indonesia, it is still recognizably American gold.

We are still here,  the Lawful Government of The United States of America, claiming our assets back and taking exception to any presumption that we are being represented in this matter by an incorporated entity whatsoever.

President Duterte, we were innocent Third Parties in all of this.  All these deals done and actions taken in our names were never approved by us.  Our government of the people, by the people, and for the people has not been in Session for many years, and has only recently assembled.

Please be advised that ours is an unincorporated government, and in international jurisdiction, our affairs are conducted by our unincorporated Federation of States.  All incorporated entities doing business “in our names” are doing so without authority and are in fact infringing upon our Good Name and Trademarks in a criminal manner.

The Principals responsible for these abuses, the Pope, the Queen, and the Lord Mayor, as well as their Subcontractors operating as governmental services corporations, have been fully informed. 

Please take appropriate action to ensure that the Philippine Government does not fail its trust and is not hood-winked by these predatory commercial corporations, and not placed in the middle of any legal battle between us and our erstwhile business partners.

If you see the justice and logic of what we propose, we are happy to negotiate  the return of the Philippine land to the People of the Philippines, in consideration for the return of our gold. 

Thank you very much for your time and attention.
