Just Ask Robert De Niro: The Achilles’ Heel is “You”

Vengeancia (updated Nov. 2015) Here’s Part 2. First, check out A Brief Introduction To Sovereignty by Elias Alias, editor, Oathkeepers. Two years ago, I found an article over at My Private Audio. There’s no name on it, so I don’t have any idea who wrote it, originally. I apologize if you wrote it, and I’m not crediting it to you! Let’s credit it to “Anonymous.” I’m thinking it may be the work of activist and author, Eric WhoRU. Here’s a PDF. Check out activist Kurt Kallenbach; here.

I’m always having new insights, so read my recent articles, Burning the Beekeeper: The Benjamin David Gilmore Story, here; Free Speech on Trial: IRS Vs. Hendrickson, here Free Dr. Dino! Never Forget 9/11, here.

Robert De Niro is known for his classic performance in the 1976 film, Taxi Driver.

The article, which I’ve rewritten for the most part, explains, that who “you” are, is no longer the question. The question is, who is “you.” Are we, the clueless American sheeple, just a bunch of blanks, waiting to be imprinted by swarming bureaucrats and attorneys casting the U.S. corporation script? Afterall, according to the most amazing actor, Robert De Niro, it’s the whole point of being a great actor! How will we “play” our roles?

Theoretically, according to the definition of Legal Personality, also here, you could have an entire army of criminals standing behind you in a courtroom. And you don’t even know it! You are the one being held liable for THEIR crimes! Who are “you?” Who are “they?” Check out the latest insights from Rod Class and the team at AIB Radio.

Imagine that a real man or woman is born on the land with a bag of gold next to him or her, representing his or her rights.

. . . nor shall private property be taken for public use, without just compensation. ” Amendment V

How can a free people reconcile these two apparently contradictory statements? If” all property” is “in the state,” then what private property rights remain with we, the real men and women?

Do a search on Collective Entity. Folks typically say “The people are outside” not “The people is outside.” In America, We, the People are the sovereigns, meaning that each man and/or woman, individually, is a sovereign with unalienable rights. Yet “people” is a collective noun. Therefore, around Musicians 4 Freedom, “we,” (meaning yours truly and anyone who agrees with me) are in the habit of referring to a singular man or woman acting in his or her sovereign capacity as a FOTL, Freeman on the Land aka a “people,” rather than as a PERSON, or a Person, etc. which are legal fictions and can mean either an “individual” or a collective.

Of course, as we shall see, the “individual,” is really a collective, too!. Believe it or not, all of the NWO legalese is trickery! Even the terms that we think are being used in the singular actually indicate a combination of the real man with=con the state, a commerce=fornication spoken of by the prophet, Daniel 2:43.

Ambiguous US Code

The US Code is intentionally ambiguous; and as we know, an ambiguous contract is construed AGAINST the drafter. Question: If the US Code does not differentiate between singular and plural, how can a singular man or woman refer to himself or herself relative to, and standing under, the US Code?

Person: one (as a human being, a partnership, or a corporation) that is recognized by law as the subject of rights and duties. Merriam Webster

“Ambiguity in a contract happens when there is a term, or set of terms, that are not defined, that can be construed to have more than one meaning (hence the ambiguity in the contract). When this happens, the ambiguity is construed against the drafter of the contract since it was the party that drafted the contract.” Read more.

“I delight to do thy will, O my God: yea, thy law is within my heart.” Psalm 40:8

Answer: stop consenting to participate in, and to be accessory to, the ambiguous and illegal behaviors of the so-called government! How? By writing our own express contracts with definite terms, and making these available to our so-called public officials. Put your documents on record (18 USC § 1512 ) at your local Clerk and Recorders office. Give the so-called officials 21 days to respond and/or object. When they don’t, they have consented to your terms.

The Contract Clause appears in the United States Constitution, Article I, section 10, clause 1. It states: “No State shall…pass any… Law impairing the Obligation of Contracts….”


“All human beings are persons, but not all persons are human beings. A human being is not just a skeleton of bones and flesh; he is much more than that. It is human body that is composed of flesh, blood and bones. Human soul is composed of human spirit. A human being is a psychosomatic entity that is a union of human flesh and human spirit. It is when we refer to this human flesh that we talk of persons.” Difference between Person and Human here.

IRC 7701(a)(1) does not refer to “person” in the usual sense of a living human being. Rather, Reg. 301.7701-1(a) instructs that the term “person” includes an individual, corporation, partnership, trust or estate, joint-stock company, association, syndicate, group, pool, joint venture or other unincorporated organization or group, guardian, committee, trustee, executor, administrator, trustee in bankruptcy, receiver, assignee for the benefit of creditors, conservator, or any person acting in a fiduciary capacity.

ALIENATE, aliene, alien. This is a generic term applicable to the various methods of transferring property from one person to another. Lord Coke, says, (1 Inst. 118 b,) alien cometh of the verb alienate, that is, alienum facere vel ex nostro dominio in alienum trawferre sive rem aliquam in dominium alterius transferre. These methods vary, according to the nature of the property to be conveyed and the particular objects the conveyance is designed to accomplish. It has been held, that under a prohibition to alienate, long leases are comprehended. 2 Dow’s Rep. 210.

Notice that the IRC list does not include beneficiary. It doesn’t include Assignor or Guarantor. For example, let’s say a seller alienates property by transferring to a buyer a parcel of the seller’s land containing a house, in exchange for cash. The seller is said to have alienated her rights in that parcel, such as the right to modify or even demolish the house on the parcel of land, to the buyer.


Those rights now belong to the buyer. Is it possible that we, the people, ALIENATE our rights to the property of our own God-created bodies, the land of our soul, by our own consent, when we put our footprints on a Birth Certificate? The UCC calls this an unconscionable contract. Wouldn’t it be our obligation to revoke such an arrangement, once we become aware of it?

“An estoppel certificate is typically used when the owner of a commercial property wants to sell or refinance the property, and the buyer or lender requires confirmation of the status of all leases in the property, to ensure that the tenant(s) do not have any claims against the landlord which would allow the tenants to offset or withhold future rent payments.” Read more.

“An estoppel certificate is a written declaration signed by a party who attests, for the benefit of another party, to the accuracy of certain facts described in the declaration. The estoppel certificate prevents the party who signs it from later challenging the validity of those facts. This type of document is perhaps most common in the context of mortgages, or home loans. If one bank seeks to purchase mortgages owned by another bank, the purchasing bank may request the borrowers, or homeowners, to sign an estoppel certificate establishing (1) that the mortgage is valid, (2) the amount of principal and interest due as of the date of the certificate, and (3) that no defenses exist that would affect the value of the mortgage. After signing this certificate, the borrower cannot dispute those facts.” Read more.


“That the seizing, or attempting to seize, any person in America, in order to transport such person beyond the sea, for trial of offenses, committed within the body of a county in America, being against law, will justify, and ought to meet with resistance and reprisal…” First Continental Congress on October 21, 1774. Are we all, like Jimmy Buffet observes, the “son of a son of a sailor?” Are Americans being transported “beyond the sea” virtually?

Public Salvageable Property

Person Can be a Verb (Role) or a Noun (Thing)

So, a “person” can be a verb, i.e., a role one might perform; and it can be a noun, i.e., a thing relative to which the role is performed. A “person” can mean a singular entity, or it can mean a collective entity. Be sure to read all of the articles from Paul Andrew Mitchell. He made this graphic, below. He maintains that a NonResident Alien is the only legal status that is not regulated by the IRS and other alphabet gangs.

I use the words, “man” and “woman” to reference a singular sovereign man or woman, a singular “people.” It seems to me that there is a lot of confusion around the internet re: the “person.” Check out this blurb:

“First, what is a ‘person’? There are legally two kinds of ‘persons’. First there is the ‘natural person’ with inalienable rights. This is a flesh and blood human being, the sovereign individual. Second, there is just the term ‘person’. When just the term ‘person’ is used, and not ‘natural person’, it means an artificial person, such as a corporation, trust, government, etc. A human being can be both a natural person and an artificial person at the same time. How do you tell the difference? It is as simple as whether you spell your name in all capital letters or not. More on this in a bit. The important thing to remember at this point is that artificial persons are property.” Read more.

I would have to disagree with this author that the “natural person” is a “flesh and blood being” with “inalienable rights.” Only the real man or woman has any real rights; any type of legally-defined “entity” including a ROLE, has mere privileges granted to it by whatever other entity is defining it. What we’re looking for here is UN-alienable rights, meaning physically incapable of being alienated.

For example, let’s consider the case of a woman who works as a nurse. When she’s home, relaxing with her family, no one expects her to draw blood and change bedpans. But when she goes to the hospital where she has consented to work part time, and puts on her uniform, she has consented to a set of contractual arrangements, which probably include following hospital rules regarding hand washing, needle disposal, etc.

There are four concepts going on in any legal system: a place, an actor, a role, and a performance. 1.) There’s a place/venue, i.e., a hospital. 2.) There’s an actor, a “token,” or generic “person.” 3.) There’s a role/status i.e., a nurse, which is characterized by a job description. 4.) There’s a performance. Part of the nurse’s contract says she needs to serve her clients, the patients.

The real man or woman comprises a fifth concept, as she/he stands outside, with a private identity. The real man or woman is not always acting and/or willing to act!

“The Constitution was a compact drawn between the people and effective between the states. It created a union of States, not a union of people…..The function of Congress is to make our laws, to the extent that the Constitution permits law making, and to make the laws for the municipal government….States, individuals and companies have all surrendered rights in exchange for Federal Reserve notes (fiat money) by entering into invisible contracts with the federal government. They do so by the use of such things as bank accounts, Social Security accounts, credit cards, etc. These invisible contracts have given the Federal Government jurisdiction over the majority of Americans, tried in Federal Equity/Admiralty Courts where the Constitution has no standing, as you have a contract with the government, and you never even knew it.” Melvin Stamper, Fruit From a Poisonous Tree. More.

A citizenship ought to be a part-time job, by contract. We, the PRIVATE men and women create that contract. As Patrick Henry observed, the purpose of that contract is to control the government, those elected by the people, not to control the people. The people are not required to stand under the US Code! Our challenge is to individualize our generic one-size-fits-all contract. Think of your relationship to the corporation dba the United States like a software company – Apple, for example. While you agree to the terms of using the software, in general, you demand that the company provides plenty of negotiable and modifiable features. You are always in control.

“In order for an actus reus to be committed there has to have been an act. Various common law jurisdictions define act differently but generally, an act is a ‘bodily movement whether voluntary or involuntary.’ “

So, you can’t get in trouble for BEING a real man or a real woman. But you can get in trouble for BEING an entity that the elite claim to control and for DOING something they have prohibited that entity to do. Like being a “defendent,” for example. What does that mean? Are you sure you want to agree to BE one? Perhaps it carries contractual strings!

Let’s say you are an orderly and you usually change bedpans and change linen. One day you wander into the operating room by mistake and pick up a knife and start cutting into somebody! That could be a disaster! Unfortunately, the PTB trick us into accepting a role that comes with criminal liability. Read more.

Model Penal Code Explains How to Stay Out of Trouble
Model Penal Code Explains How to Stay Out of Trouble

In America, under our constitutional republican form of government, the people exercise our citizenship by our consent. When we perform any aspect of our “citizenship job” like voting or paying taxes, we have agreed to follow rules set down in the Constitution for governing the united States of America, which also apply to the corporation dba the United States. We retain rights, and we also delegate rights. Rights we delegate are returned to our citizenship(s) as exemptions, privileges, and benefits. Be sure to check out USA VS US.


Real men and women, who are infinitely complex, are continuous and undefinable, like division by zero! For this article, I’ve adopted the following protocol: “PERSON” to refer to an artificial legal person (organization); and “Person” to refer to a natural person (individual), which is still an “entity” and a legal fiction.


Aliens, Nationals, Citizens

NRA is an acronym for Nonresident Alien. What is the difference between a Foreign National and a Nonresident Alien? Here’s what this “Human Resources” blurb has to say:

“A Foreign National – is a term used to describe a person who is not a citizen of the host country in which he or she is temporally residing. An individual who is a citizen of any country other than the US. Whether a foreign national is a nonresident or resident alien for tax purposes is determined based on the individual’s visa status, purpose of the current visit, length of stay in the US.A Nonresident Alien

(NRA) – is any person who is not a US Citizen, not a lawful permanent resident (green card holder) and does not meet either the Green Card or the Substantial Presence Test. A nonresident alien files a special tax form, pays tax only on US source income, is subject to special rates, and may qualify for treaty exemptions.” More.

Read the definitions at 8 USC. It would appear that a “Foreign National” is roughly equivalent to a “Sovereign Citizen,” aka an “American Citizen.” A “Foreign National” is a temporary resident of the U.S. Remember, citizen=individual=person are all legal fictions. Those dreaded adhesion contracts are made between  the Natural Person, John Doe Smith, and the Artificial Person, JOHN DOE SMITH, which is a “franchise” of the United States, wholly owned by it, kind of like a McDonald’s Restaurant. The legal system can only deal with real people “appearing” in a recognizable ROLE relative to their franchise, whether customer or burger flipper. So, the question is, what ROLES are there, and what ROLE do you want to play relative to the franchise they gave you?

“The term resident and citizen of the United States is distinguished from a Citizen of one of the several states, in that the former is a special class of citizen created by Congress.” U.S. v. Anthony 24 Fed. 829 (1873)

Hmmmm….a special class of citizen? Maybe like a ROBOT? Like a DRONE? Maybe like a Secret Agent Man? Maybe his role is CLASSIFIED, even? Maybe it would be against national security to tell you what his job is, really? Maybe, like Jason Bourne, he doesn’t even know what his job is?
