The Hidden Death of the Ownership Society…


n

From CHARLES HUGH SMITH

The foundation of the neofeudal economy is this: the right of ownership still exists in name, but the actual ownership of political and financial power is concentrated in the hands of a few.

The core of American liberty is widespread private ownership of property. The Founding Fathers were quite clear on the necessity of protecting private ownership from encroachment by a covertly created monarchical Empire or a financial Aristocracy. Private ownership protected liberty and the distribution of wealth by enabling widespread ownership of “the means of production” (land, tools, intellectual property, enterprises) and home ownership. Thus the correlation between prosperity, widespread ownership of small businesses and homes and a relatively modest disparity of private wealth.When ownership of property becomes concentrated into a rentier class (i.e. a financial Aristocracy) that is protected by a Monocrat Central State, income disparity shoots up and prosperity is concentrated in the hands of the political and financial Elites. In other words, the Founding Fathers understood that financial servitude precluded political liberty. Liberty in a neofeudal economy was ultimately liberty in name only.

While outright slavery was outlawed, the chains of serfdom were (and are) entirely legal. If you doubt this, please try erasing your student loans in bankruptcy court. There are a number of complex dynamics in play in the Death of the Ownership Society. I will try to cover them as simply and directly as possible.

1. If a homeowner’s real-world equity is effectively zero, then what do they actually own? They own a mortgage, i.e. a promise to pay a debt. As long as they are current on payments, this acts more as a claim on future ownership, i.e. full ownership when the mortgage is paid off, or a long-term lease. If their equity is 10% of the mortgage, there is no way to extract this equity short of selling the home, and the transactions fees will consume most of the 10%. What the lender owns is A) a claim on the underlying property and B) the homeowner’s income stream, much of which flows to the lender via mortgage payments. Is this arrangement “widespread ownership” or is it cloaked neofeudalism? In credit bubbles, homeowners appear to benefit as their ownership claim is leveraged by the lender’s capital into astounding profits. But alas, credit bubbles never last, and when they pop then the extra debt taken on to play the speculative leverage game remains to be paid.

2. If the mortgage is sliced and diced into tranches and securitized, i.e. bundled into pools of mortgages sold to investors, what happens to the notion of ownership? Longtime correspondent Jim S. provides the answer: securitization creates a new class of “non-property” that is fraudulent and thus criminal. Jim explains:

The original crime at the front of the securitization process is creating “non-property.” The loss of the legal paper trail of title transfers, note transfers, country property transfer registrations in the rapid performance of mortgage securitizations is further sidestepped by focusing attention on the foreclosure procedural irregularities at the end of the process.

The creation of “non-property” at the front of the process necessarily creates the additional requirement of additional fraud at the end of the process: foreclosures.By extending the forgiveness of what should be prosecuted as fraud (what has been deemed mere malfeasance deserving of a picayune civil fine), the Status Quo hid the original crimes of rapid securitization that destroyed the legal status of property. The biggest crime in American History is about to end the process of “sweeping” the original crime under the rug. The crime is the destruction of the legal standing of property, fully at public expense, and its ultimate accumulation in the Executive Branch for “redistributive” disposition, again at the full expense of the public. Dodd/Frank only has extended the efficiency of the complicated process of theft, and further solidified the nature of its very permanence.

The focus on the disappearance of mortgage titles is at the foreclosure end, and not at the front end of the securitization process where the titles disappeared on a system wide basis. Robo-signing is a fraudulent result of the original crime, not recognized or treated as a crime, but as a civil offense worthy of a paltry fine. The robo-signing settlement will further solidify mortgage securities formation in the future, with civil penalties for malfeasance reduced to a minimized cost of continuing the process.

Though the the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) has been sold as a consumer protection agency, it is fundamentally a rogue agency operated within the Federal Reserve. The CFPB is mentioned as having undefined scope and extensiveness of powers, immune from real Presidential or Congressional oversight, having essentially full, autonomous power within the Federal Reserve to do what it wants, when it wants, in the full comfort and safety of the Federal Reserve itself. The CFPB can buy, borrow on and take security positions in failing and failed banks. What a deal.

This harks back to a pre-crisis specialty: get rid of supposedly outdated regulation, but create no new limits or powers to keep things from blowing up.

Thank you, Jim, for the clear explanation. It is clear that Securitization Is Illegal.

3. Economist John Maynard Keynes’ concept of a “comprehensive socialisation of investment” has been reduced by the Neo-Keynesian cargo cult to a cartoonish campaign of the Central State to borrow trillions of dollars to prop up its most corrupt and inefficient crony-capitalist cartels and the rentier-class–the financial Aristocracy. Here is Keynes:

I conceive, therefore, that a somewhat comprehensive socialisation of investment will prove the means of securing an approximation to full employment. But beyond this no obvious case is made out for a system of State-Socialism which would embrace most of the economic life of the community.

In this context, we can understand the original purpose of the Federal Housing Administration (FHA) and the other housing-mortgage agencies of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac as a “somewhat comprehensive socialisation of investment” in housing: a Federal agency underwrote and guaranteed mortgages to individual households to enable widespread ownership of homes. It was not conceived as a “system of State-Socialism,” that is, a means for the State to acquire ownership of the nation’s housing stock.

Not coincidentally, the rental housing market was dominated by individual investors (Mom and Pop proprietors) in the era before mortgage securitization and the concentration of power in “too big to fail” investment and commercial banks. Institutional ownership of rental housing was concentrated in the 50+ unit housing sector, less than 1% of the nation’s 15 million rental properties. In the 5- to 49-unit sector, individual owners still owned three-fourths of all properties.

The ownership of rental properties was widely dispersed among individual investors.

4. Now we find the Federal mortgage agencies are colluding with private capital to transfer ownership of the Federally guaranteed/owned portion of the nation’s housing stock to concentrations of private capital, i.e. the financial Aristocracy.

The details of this wholesale transfer of what amounts to public property to the financial Aristocracy are chilling: in effect, private capital puts a few bucks down and Fannie Mae loans them the rest at zero interest. It also gives them roughly 30% of the rental income for managing the properties, and after the dust of robo-signing has settled, the properties will be transferred to the financial Aristocracy. What happened to the agency’s mission to broaden home ownership? It has been subverted to serve the interests of concentrated private capital.

Thanks to the collusion of the Federal Reserve and the Federal mortgage agencies, private capital is gorging on vast blocks of homes:

5. There are effectively two sets of laws in the U.S.: one for the Central State/financial Aristocracy and one for the serfs. From Why Inequality Matters: The Housing Crisis, The Justice System & Capitalism:

One of the central characteristics of highly unequal societies is that two sets of laws develop: One set for the rich and powerful and one set for everyone else. The more unequal societies become, the more easily they accept the unacceptable, and with each unrebuked violation, the powerful actors at the top of the society gain an ever greater sense of entitlement and an ever greater sense that the laws that govern everyone else don’t apply to them. As a result, their behavior becomes increasingly egregious.Yale’s Robert Dahl, one of the preeminent political scientists of our era, wrote in 2006 in On Political Equality (Yale University Press) of the risks of rising economic inequality, which is inevitably accompanied by political power which also concentrates at the top of the society:

“The unequal accumulation of political resources points to an ominous possibility: political inequalities may be ratcheted up, so to speak, to a level from which they cannot be ratcheted down. The cumulative advantages in power, influence, and authority of the more privileged strata may become so great that .. a majority of ordinary citizens…are simply unable…to overcome the forces of inequality arrayed against them.”

In other words, neofeudal serfdom.

The new road to serfdom runs not through Marxist ownership by the State but the transfer of the nation’s assets and wealth by the State to concentrated private capital.

6. The next iteration of this transfer is now clear: blocks of rental homes will be bundled and securitized by Wall Street and sold to investors worldwide. Haven’t we seen this before? Only now it’s all OK because the creation of “non-property” rentier income streams is now legal, and the Federal government and the Federal Reserve have begun to transfer publicly owned or guaranteed properties to their pals in private capital on a wholesale basis.

“It’s hard to find a private-equity firm on the planet that doesn’t have a strategy in this space,” Gary Beasley, chief executive officer at Waypoint Homes, said last week at the American Securitization Forum’s annual conference in Las Vegas. The Oakland, California-based company has bought homes in California, Arizona, Illinois and Georgia.

The foundation of the neofeudal economy is this: the right of ownership still exists in name, but the actual ownership of political and financial power is concentrated in the hands of a few. “Ownership” of a heavily mortgaged home is a simulacrum of ownership when the “owner’s” income is diverted to a rentier financial Aristocracy.

This was a useful approach to our problem. The only criticism I can come up with in the spirit of nit picking, is that it would be clearer is the entire thing was in CAPITALS to suggest that the text is being screamed. A good condiment for this meal would be to go to the Russia Today web site and, under “Programs,” select The Keiser Report and listen to a well informed critic loose it and scream about current events, appropriately.

Also, the whole process can be seen, more clearly I think, as a criminal class becoming dominant and stealing everything in sight. There are parallels to mediaeval serfdom, but this monster we invented is much, much worse. Under European mediaeval serfdom there was the concept of the serfs having some rights and privileges relative to the lordly class. A frequent system was that two days a week your labor belonged to the lord. The rest of the days you produced for your family. The so called neofeudalism is all about total dispossession and exclusion of the vast majority of society from conditions of decent survival, leading to general social collapse.

There are reasons this situation developed. The short version is that those intelligent individuals who’s brains are incapable of responding to others feelings, the sociopaths or psychopaths, are uniquely qualified to work their way into competitive positions and take eventually seeking absolute power. Unlike the feudal lords they have no interest whatsoever in the preservation of anything or anyone. They have no future orientation. They are inexplicable to ordinary folks who apply normal considerations to grossly abnormal behavior and are helpless in the glow of sociopathic charm (see The Sociopath Next Door by Martha Stout). The sociopath exists in the moment and is driven to take horrible risks, the consequences of which they push onto others. Our system of unregulated competition is suited only to depraved pirates. In small, stable groups they quickly identify themselves and are mostly neutralized. Large scale, anonymous settings enable the sociopath. The good news is that this depraved system is absolutely going to destroy itself. Let’s hope that when the dust settles from this conflagration that some of us more normal folks survive in a survivable world. Preparing for that is the work.

When the culture bought into the myth of Individual Meritocracy we initiated ruthless competition in the false belief that that would benefit everyone by producing “progress,” but all it really did was to elevate those brain damaged individuals incapable of compassion to be our masters. Bad move on every conceivable level.

PS: Brain imaging can reliably identify these brain damaged folks and there are few enough of them to make screening those acceding to power a realistic proposal.

“The great enemy of the Truth is very often not the lie – deliberate, contrived, and dishonest – but the myth – persistent, persuasive and realistic”.

This country, and all its citizens and property has been owned by a very few, who have used purposely misleadingly deceptive laws and language combine with threats of en-‘force’-ment to control and declare ownership of the lands, the resources and the ‘citizens’ of the United States.

This shadow government has been in control for a very, very long time but the curtain is just beginning to be pulled back, as certain ‘inconvenient truths’ are being revealed to the many now.

Only by suspending current beliefs as to what we thought and were taught can we truly begin to understand the who, how and why’s we got into the mess we are in today.

1776

The primary reason for the War for Independence was not “taxation without representation”, but the forced payment of taxes to the King in gold instead of paper money. America was flourishing by using her own “fiat money” system based only on production, not a gold-based system that could be manipulated by the King. The King could not “control” the fiat money system and therefore passed a law requiring that taxes be paid in gold only. The King had most of the gold—the colonies had little; so unemployment ensued—and embittered colonists cried for war. Benjamin Franklin put it this way, “The colonies would have gladly born the little tax on tea, and other matters, had it not been that England took away from the colonies their money

1871

“Since I entered politics, I have chiefly had men’s views confided to me privately. Some of the biggest men in the United States, in the field of commerce and manufacture, are afraid of something. They know that there is a power somewhere so organized, so subtle, so watchful, so interlocked, so complete, so pervasive, that they had better not speak above their breath when they speak in condemnation of it.”
– Woodrow Wilson, 28th President of the United States, The New Freedom, 1913

Congress broke faith with We the People in 1871 and sold us out when they formed a private corporation and made it the government of the District of Columbia. They used the Constitution through the 14th Amendment, as their by- laws, therefore taking their authority not UNDER the Constitution but taking their authority OVER the constitution. They copyrighted not only the constitution but also many related names such as, THE UNITED STATES, U.S. THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, USA as their own. This is the final blow to the original constitution. Hence forth, the UNITED STATES has been governed entirely by private corporate law, dictated by the banks as creditors.

The “Act to Provide a Government for the District of Columbia,” Section 34 of the Forty-First Congress of the United States, Session III, Chapter 61 and 62, enacted February 21, 1871, states that the UNITED STATES OF AMERICA is a corporation, whose jurisdiction is applicable only in the ten-mile-square parcel of land known as the District of Columbia and to whatever properties are legally titled to the UNITED STATES, by its registration in the corporate County, State, and Federal governments that are under military power of the UNITED STATES and its creditors. Under this provision, the military Congress of the UNITED STATES had obtained the power to pass private international law for application within the federal District of Columbia. All States of the Union adopted new legislatively created ‘conditions’ and ‘codified’ their laws under federal mandate. State ‘codes’ were unlawfully adopted despite their origin as instruments of sovereign people. However, We the People remained sovereign.

1913

‘The Federal Reserve is no more ‘Federal’ than Federal Express’

In 1909, default loomed once again. The US government asked the Crown of England for an extension of time. This extension was granted for another 20 years on several conditions. One of the conditions was that the United States permit the creditors to establish a new national bank. The bankers moved deeper into our nation by the establishment of the Federal Reserve Bank in 1913, the IRS to collect the interest on their loans made to the UNITED STATES, and the 17th Amendment enacted May 31, 1913, was the condition for the extension of time. The 16th and 17th Amendment further reduced the states power. The UNITED STATES adopted the mercantile system of ancient Babylonia.

With the passage of the Federal Reserve Act of 1913, the UNITED STATES was firmly lashed to the yoke, so that a small number of very rich men have been able to lay upon the people a yoke little better than slavery itself. That yoke inevitably grows heavier with ever- compounding interest, and totals over $20 trillion of debt owed by the American people today ($80,000 per American). This vast accumulation of wealth concentrates immense power and despotic economic domination in the hands of the few central bankers “who are able to govern credit and its allotment, for this reason supplying, so to speak, the life-blood to the entire economic body, and grasping, as it were, in their hands the very soul of the economy so that no one dare breathe against their will.” A worldwide tyranny is gradually being imposed, hidden to most, by the money masters.

1933

‘The Truth will set you free; but first it will piss you off ~ Joan Baez

In Europe, the International Bankers in 1930 declared several nations bankrupt, including the United States. In 1933, immediately after Franklin Delano Roosevelt took office, his first act as President was to publicly declare the United States bank holiday. He further went on to issue his Presidential Executive Order on March 5th, 1933 that all United States Citizens must turn in all their gold in return for Federal Reserve Notes. This was passed into law by Congress on June 5, 1933.

When we turned in our gold, we just volunteered to be citizens of the jurisdiction of the ten miles square of Washington D.C. and their laws. We became 14th Amendment Citizens. Our birth certificates, the title to our bodies, were registered at the Department of Commercial. This title to our bodies, all of our property and all of our future labor, was pledged to the International Bankers as security for the money owed in bankruptcy. This was done under the authority of commercial law (Babylonian law) by and through Title. The American People were not in bankruptcy. Only the Corporate UNITED STATES was in bankruptcy. But with the US Corporation holding the title to your body and life, you could be used for collateral to secure the national debt through the birth certificate given by parents voluntarily to be entered into the Commercial Registry. This act, in commerce, gave Title to your body by way of a “constructive” contract.

Next, the government created an artificial ‘person’ in your name, a corporation, a fictitious entity to take its place in a virtual reality of contract law and corporations. By and through an adhesion contract, the government then made you, the real man or woman, responsible for that fictional entity, a fiduciary and surety for an artificial entity. Your artificial entity secured the National debt and through it, you became a 14th Amendment Citizen of the UNITED STATES. In other words, they got you to think and act as though you really were that fictional entity. You agreed by your action or failure to act. YOU adhered to a contract offer because you thought or acted as though you were the receiver of the offer. In doing so, YOU were presumed to have ACCEPTED THE CONTRACT.

All licenses and all existing contracts are made between the UNITED STATES or THE STATE OF (whatever state you live in) and your artificial entity. That fictitious entity binds you to the UNITED STATES and its sub-corporations because they have, through adhesion contract, made you, the real man or woman, fiduciary and responsible for that artificial entity. Of course, you voluntarily sign, and even request, all those contracts, don’t you? It seems to be your name, although you probably never spell it all in capital letters as they do. They wish for you to think nothing of the aberration, perhaps just something they do to be clear and error-free.

All of these contracts you sign carry with it your agreement to obey and uphold all the laws, rules and regulations passed by the Congress of the UNITED STATES CORPORATION and THE STATE OF. . . . and will be enforced against you.

From that day forward, We the People, once upon a time sovereigns who created government for our convenience and welfare, could never own property in allodium because the state now had possession of it all. In 1964, the state obtained title to all private property. You can only “rent” homes that you believe you own by paying taxes. You only have a certificate of title to the car you think you own, and you continue to drive it because of your yearly fee. The state owns the true title to our homes, our cars, to everything we thought or think we own. You married the state through your marriage license and your children became wards of the state. All of this was pledged, including all the fruits of your future labor, to the bankers as security against the national debt and was placed in the possession of the Secretary of State of each state as an agent for the Trustee of the Bankruptcy, the U.S. Secretary of Treasury. Not knowing the rules of the game you went directly to jail, you could not pass GO and you could not collect $200.

President Roosevelt then called all the Governors into Washington D. C. for a conference. This was the beginning of the states losing the remainder of their sovereignty. It was not until 1944 that the corporate states lost all their power over the corporate United States with the Buck Act. With this Act, the states became, essentially, 14th Amendment Citizens as well. This completed the destruction of the corporate states having any power to protect against usurpation by the U.S. Government. The corporate states went under the jurisdiction of Washington, D.C.

“The Alice-in-Wonderland nature of this pronouncement is not lost on me; but after careful consideration, I find myself stuck in a paradoxical situation in which I cannot solve a problem because of contradictory constraints and rules — a veritable Catch-22. I can find no way around the thicket of laws and precedents that effectively allow the Executive Branch of our Government to proclaim as perfectly lawful certain actions that seem on their face incompatible with our Constitution and laws, while keeping the reason for their conclusion a secret.”
United States District Court Judge Colleen McMahon ruling on Obama’s Kill Lists.

http://www.eutimes.net/2013/01/obama-death-squads-fan-out-across-america-as-rebellion-looms/

A confidential Justice Department memo concludes that the U.S. government can order the killing of American citizens if they are believed to be “senior operational leaders” of al-Qaida or “an associated force” — even if there is no intelligence indicating they are engaged in an active plot to attack the U.S.

The 16-page memo, a copy of which was obtained by NBC News, provides new details about the legal reasoning behind one of the Obama administration’s most secretive and controversial polices: its dramatically increased use of drone strikes against al-Qaida suspects abroad, including those aimed at American citizens, such as the September 2011 strike in Yemen that killed alleged al-Qaida operatives Anwar al-Awlaki and Samir Khan. Both were U.S. citizens who had never been indicted by the U.S. government nor charged with any crimes.”

“The American mind simply has not come to a realization of the evil which has been introduced into our midst. It rejects even the assumption that human creatures could espouse a philosophy which must ultimately destroy all that is good and decent.”

—J. Edgar Hoover

Commerce Law is the Land

There is no law today except as fiction of copyrighted statutes, to be interpreted by ‘judges’ who construe and construct whatever they choose to have those statutes mean.

We, as sovereigns irresponsibly recognized the Crown of England (IMF) as PRINCIPLE of America. In reality, the IMF was the Creditor of the UNITED STATES, a corporation, but NEVER you. The Creditor of the UNITED STATES designed invisible contracts to ensnare the sovereign people of America as subjects. The Creditor of the UNITED STATES implemented the invisible contracts through apparent ‘color of law’ and the sovereigns irresponsibly agreed. We, as Sovereigns, through the invisible contracts, and our irresponsibility to reject the Creditors (IMF) ideas, have voluntarily given our substance to the mythical creator of our situation.

You’ll find that there is a common thread woven throughout our entire history and that thread is commerce, the merchant, the money-changer (banks), the law merchant, i.e., the law of commerce, civil law and maritime law. This is not to say that commerce is bad. It does, however, say that commerce brings with it the laws of commerce. Wherever commerce goes it brings laws that can bind people into slavery. This can happen only if the people agree with it.

Banks create “money” today out of thin air; then, they charge, we, the people, interest on their creation. This can happen only if the people agree with it. Thereafter, the merchants and the bankers create laws, through lawmakers whom they control, that protect commerce and bind the people to obey. This can happen only if the people agree with it.

The only reason this occurs is that we do not handle our own affairs.

We are Chattel(cattle) at Birth owed to it’s Creditors

Birth and marriage certificates are a form of securities called “warehouse receipts.” The items included on a warehouse receipt, as descried at §7-202 of the Uniform Commercial Code, the law which governs commercial paper and transactions, which parallel a birth or marriage certificate are:

-the location of the warehouse where the goods are stored…(residence)

-the date of issue of the receipt…..(“Date issued”)

-the consecutive number of the receipt…(found on back or front of the certificate, usually in red numbers)

-a description of the goods or of the packages containing them…(name, sex, date of birth, etc.)

-the signature of the warehouseman, which may be made by his authorized agent…(municipal clerk or state registrar’s signature)

Birth/marriage certificates now appear to at least qualify as “warehouse receipts” under the Uniform Commercial Code. Black’s Law Dictionary, 7th ed. defines:

warehouse receipt. “…A warehouse receipt, which is considered a document of title, may be a negotiable instrument and is often used for financing with inventory as security.”

Since the U.S. went bankrupt in 1933, all new money has to be borrowed into existence. All states started issuing serial-numbered, certificated “warehouse receipts” for births and marriages in order to pledge us as collateral against those loans and municipal bonds taken out with the Federal Reserve’s banks. The “Full faith and Credit” of the American people is said to be that which back the nation’s debt.

That simply means the American people’s ability to labor and pay back that debt. In order to catalog its laborers, the government needed an efficient, methodical system of tracking its property to that end. Humans today are looked upon merely as resources – “human resources,” that is.

Governmental assignment of a dollar value to the heads of citizens began on July 14, 1862 when President Lincoln offered 6 percent interest bearing-bonds to states who freed their slaves on a “per head” basis. This practice of valuating humans (cattle?) continues today with our current system of debt-based currency reliant upon a steady stream of fresh new chattels to back it.

The state claims an interest in every child within it’s jurisdiction. The state will, if it deems it necessary, nullify your parental rights and appoint a guardian (trustee) over your children. The subject of every birth certificate is a child. The child is a valuable asset, which if properly trained, can contribute valuable assets provided by its labor for many years. It is presumed by those who have researched this issue, that the child itself is the asset of the trust established by the birth certificate, and the social security number is the numbering or registration of the trust, allowing for the assets of the trust to be tracked. If this information is true, your child is now owned by the state. Each one of us, including our children, are considered assets of the bankrupt united states. We are now designated by this government as “HUMAN RESOURCES,” with a new crop born every year.”

Before 1921 the records of births and names of children were entered into family bibles, as were the records of marriages and deaths. These records were readily accepted by both the family and the law as “official” records. Since 1921 the American people have been registering the births and names of their children with the government of the state in which they are born, even though there is no federal law requiring it. The state tells you that registering your child’s birth through the birth certificate serves as proof that he/she was born in the united States , thereby making him/her a United States Citizen. For the past several years a social security number has been mandated by the federal government to be issued at birth.

In 1933, bankruptcy was declared by President Roosevelt. The governors of the then 48 States pledged the “full faith and credit” of their states, including the citizenry, as collateral for loans of credit from the Federal Reserve system. To wit:”Full faith and credit” clause of Const. U.S. article 4. sec. 1, requires that foreign judgement be given such faith and credit as it had by law or usage of state of it’s origin. That foreign statutes are to have force and effect to which they are entitled in home state. And that a judgement or record shall have the same faith, credit, conclusive effect, and obligatory force in other states as it has by law or usage in the state from whence taken.
Black’s Law Dictionary, 4th Ed. cites omitted.

Today we are defined as human resources, believed to be owned by government. The government now wants us, as individuals, to be tagged and tracked. Government mandated or legislated National I.D. is unconstitutional anyway you look at it. Federal jurisdiction to legislate for the several states does not exist and could never survive a court challenge as shown above.

U.S. Ruled by Maritime Law

International Maritime Admiralty law, the law of the high seas, began in Sumeria, was perfected in Rome and continues to this day. Jordan Maxwell has explained that the way we trade commerce today is modeled after the Masons’/Templar Knights’ 1000 year old system. Notice how regardless of whether you send a product by air, water, or land you “ship” it.

The ship pulls into its “berth” and ties to the “dock.” The Captain has to provide the port authorities with a “certificate of manifest” declaring the products he has brought. Through a legal loophole the royals have created, US citizens are considered property of the queen under British Maritime law. Since we are born of our mother’s water, from her “birth canal,” we are thereby a maritime product, a “shipped” commodity. Our mothers were delivering a product under maritime law and that’s why we are born in a “delivery room.”

That’s why the “doc” signs your “berth” certificate, your “certificate of manifest.” You’re kept in the Maternity “Ward.” Why a ward? No other hospital areas are called wards. Prisons have wards and wardens.

The United States Corporation came about just after the civil war. The Act of 1871 was passed by congress creating a separate form of government for DC, essentially turning it into a corporation. It was decided that employees would be called “citizens.” So when you say in court or on paper, that you are a citizen of the United States, you are not a free American, but an employee of US Inc.

When you get a fine, a ticket, a bill, or get sued, you must sign in all capital letters. When you die your Masonic tombstone by law will have all capital letters to show their employee has died. The entity that is your name in all caps is your maritime admiralty product code. Upper and lower case legally represents you, your body.

“The Uniform Commercial Code was approved by the American Bar Association, which is a franchise, a subordinate branch, of the British legal system and its hierarchy based in London’s Temple Bar (named after the Illuminati Knights Templar secret society). As I have been writing for many years, the power that controls America is based in Britain and Europe because that is where the power is located that owns the United States Corporation. By the way, if you think it is strange that a court on dry land could be administered under Maritime Law, look at US Code, Title 18 B 7.

It says that Admiralty Jurisdiction is applicable in the following locations:
(1) the high seas;
(2) any American ship;
(3) any lands reserved or acquired for the use of the United States, and under the exclusive or concurrent jurisdiction thereof, or any place purchased or otherwise acquired by the United States by consent of the legislature of the state. In other words, mainland America.

All this is founded on Roman law because the Illuminati have been playing this same game throughout the centuries wherever they have gone. The major politicians know that this is how things are and so do the government administrators, judges, lawyers and insider ‘journalists’.

Those who realize what is happening and ask the court for the name of the true creditor or recipients of the fines imposed by the ‘legal system’ are always refused this information by the judge. The true creditors in such cases, and the ultimate recipient of the fines, are the bankers to which the corporation ‘country’ is bankrupt.”

Lawyers or “barristers” have to take the Bar Association “bar” exam just as alcoholics go to the “bar,” sugar-junkies eat candy “bars,” and gamblers hope to get 3 “bars” on the slot machine.

These all derive from the Templar’s turn of the 13th century “Temple Bar” in England. Originally the Temple Bar was literally just a bar or chain between two posts next to the Temple law courts. This soon became a huge stone gate and there were eventually eight of these gates built so the elites could restrict/control trade within the city of London.

They were taken down during 19th century, but the each stone was numbered and kept in storage until 2004 when they just rebuilt the Temple Bar in London.

“If you notice on the bottom of your birth certificate it says Department of Commerce. It is a property of the Department of Commerce because you are nothing more than a piece of commercial material. That’s why if you’re out of work you don’t go to the unemployment office, you go to the Office of Human Resources, because you’re just a human resource.”

The Judge sits on the bench for the bank. Banks are on both sides of a river. A river bank directs the flow of the current/sea the currency, the cash flow. The current sea is “deposited” from bank to bank down the river. (Also we have frozen assets, liquid assets and current assets as to show how our money ‘flows’ and deposit slips.)

We’re just “consumers” to advertise to, just “human resources” to be used up like batteries, and they are the “social engineers,” molding us “useless eaters” into wage slavery.

LOST! ~ Law of the Sea Treaty ~ to allow the UN to Rule over All

The UN’s Law of the Sea Treaty (LOST) will deliver American sovereignty and seven-tenths of the world’s surface through allocation of oceans and seas to the UN by way of the entanglement of global bureaucracy.

Over three decades ago, then President Ronald Regan rejected LOST, saying “no national interest of the United States could justify handing sovereign control of two-thirds of the Earth’s surface over to the Third World.”

The writers of LOST want to give the UN power to draw oceanic boundaries to impose environmental regulations and restrict business on the high seas.

LOST would give critical US naval and drilling operational decision making and final word to the UN.

The Courts at Sea
(and the Vatican is called the ‘Holy See(a)’ for a reason!)

Court rooms are divided into two sections: a) the public gallery (where the audience sits and where the defendant waits until his case is called) and b) the area where the proceedings take place. The boundaries are always clearly marked by some sort of barrier. The two sections are connected either by a simple opening as shown below or an actual gate.

The public gallery (galley) represents dry land. Here you are under the jurisdiction and protection of Common Law, also known as the Law of the Land. Under Common Law you are presumed to be innocent until proven guilty and furthermore, you have the inalienable right to trial by jury. The other part of the court room represents a sea-going vessel. Here you are under the jurisdiction of admiralty law, also known as the Law of the Sea. Things are topsy-turvy here: you are considered guilty unless you can prove your innocence and the right to trial by jury has been abolished.

Step from the the public gallery into the other part of the court room and you are considered to have boarded a ship; you now come under the jurisdiction of admiralty law, administered by the captain of the imaginary vessel, the magistrate/judge. This ship, however, is flying false colors, i.e. it is making itself out to be a lawful court when in reality it is nothing more than a commercial outfit operating for profit/plunder. To put it bluntly: you have fallen amongst pirates!

Tragedy and Hope ~ Carol Quigley (former Professor to Bill Clinton)

Dr. Carroll Quigley, a highly respected professor of history at the Foreign Service School of Georgetown University for 28-years, revealed in his 1348 page magnum opus, Tragedy and Hope (1966), the nefarious goal of Cecil Rhodes’ secret society calling for an American Union, coming to fruition today as the “North American Union.” From 1884 to about 1915, according Dr. Quigley, the members of The Rhodes Secret Society exhaustively worked at extending the British Empire and forming a federal system. The Rhodes Secret Society was “constantly harping on the lessons to be learned from the failure of the American Revolution and the success of the Canadian federation of 1867, and hoped to federate the various parts of the empire as seemed feasible, then confederate the whole of it, with the United Kingdom, into a single organization…(hoping) to bring the United States into this organization to whatever degree was possible…(making) Washington the capital of the whole organization or allow parts of the empire to become states of the American Union (emphasis added. Below see scan copy of page 133 of Tragedy and Hope).”

Empire of the City; E.C. Knuth (free download)

http://archive.org/details/TheEmpireOftheCity

The author presents a behind the scenes look at the secretive international policies of the British government and how their past success allowed them to rise to the top of a vast secret order of World Finance. According to the author, he has pieced enough information together, presented in this book, which clearly shows that a colossal financial and political organization is run from an area of London called The City. Due to its power, The City is claimed to operate as a super-government of the world, and is said to play some kind of role or have influence in virtually every major world event. This book provides a birds-eye view of British international finance and how it really works, behind the scenes and hand-in-hand with various governments, political figures and financial organizations.

Such long rebuttals need to be placed elsewhere.

As for my comment, with real estate being taxed you NEVER own it. Try not paying your taxes for a few years and find out. If you truly owned it it would not be taxed. It would be yours to do as you like as long as it did not affect your neighbor’s rights or property.
