Vengeancia (updated April 14, 2014) Find Burt’s recent videos here.Keep in mind that we do not have special training in law, legal, etc. We are just a couple of regular folks who are learning and working on helping ourselves and others to be free on the land. Pretty simple. Do your own due diligence.
Did you know that, in Washington State, public schools are spending approx. $1,000/mo. per child and classrooms are STILL overcrowded? Further, 1/3 of students drop out between 9th and 12th grade and 1/3 of those who graduate are not prepared for college or the workforce.
Of those who do attend college, 56% need to take a remedial course in math or science. Does anyone really think this outcome is by accident? Moreover, who is to be held accountable?
“Countless people will hate the New World Order and will die protesting against it. When we attempt to evaluate its promise, we have to bear in mind the distress of a generation or so of malcontents, many of them quite gallant and graceful-looking people.” H. G. Wells (1939) Somethin’ Funny’s Goin’ On by Alfred Adask
Meanwhile….”The private prison population has grown 353.7 percent in the past 15 years,” according to a study by the Justice Policy Institute. Major private prison companies have a financial incentive to encourage policies which keep that number on the rise.” Eric Schlosser found that 70% of the prison population in the U.S. is illiterate. Further, most of the biggest corporations like GE didn’t pay ANY TAXES at all in 2010. More here.
Clearly, this system, is not fair, effective or even efficient. For that kind of cash, each child could have their own piano and private music lessons, not to mention tutoring in math, science, rhetoric, logic….you get the idea. The Census Bureau found that Colorado spent $8,167 per pupil, 11th from the bottom nationally, during the 2006-07 school year. That is below the national average of $9,666 and almost half the amount spent by New York, the top state. What is this stuff called money, and where’s it all going?
“…all civil government is “the Beast”… and ultimately and unavoidably produces a mafia protection racket that plunders rather than truly protects those who seek protection. They create a monopoly on protection for themselves, and they use that mafia to force you to become an “employee” or “officer” subject to their supervision instead of a “customer” who has the right NOT to seek their services.” Read more about the de Facto Govt.
“If money is wanted by Rulers who have in any manner oppressed the people, they may retain it until their grievances are redressed, and thus peaceably procure relief, without trusting to despised petitions or disturbing the public tranquility.” [Continental Congress, 1774; Am. Pol., 233; Journals of the Continental Congress, October 26, 1774]
“Consent makes the law. A contract is a law between the parties, which can acquire force only by consent.” Bouvier’s Maxims of Law, 1856
Contrary to the sustainability-mongering globalist, elite-funded, lamestream media, our problem is not that there are too many people; it’s that there are too many corporatists and bureaucrats making a living, like parasites, off of dumbed down children, elderly, prisoners, and wage slaves, not to mention the planet’s resources. Moreover, the rich are getting richer and the poor are getting poorer. This is NOT ACCIDENTAL!
“By this means government may secretly and unobserved, confiscate the wealth of the people, and not one man in a million will detect the theft.” — British Lord John Maynard Keynes (the father of ‘Keynesian Economics’ which our nation now endures) in his book “THE ECONOMIC CONSEQUENCES OF THE PEACE” (1920)
Further, gun-grabbers in congress have introduced legislation to take Americans’ second amendment in the wake of the Fast and Furious scandal. Freedom-loving folks in America and around the planet have got to get ourselves out of the problem and into the solution.
WHO IS SOVEREIGN IN AMERICA?
Chisholm v. State of Georgia, 2 U.S. 419, (Dall.) 455 (1793)
“Sovereignty itself is, of course, not subject to law, for it is the author and source of law; but in our system, while sovereign powers are delegated to the agencies of government, sovereignty itself remains with the people, by whom and for whom all government exists and acts. And the law is the definition and limitation of power.”Yick Wo v. Hopkins, 118 U.S. 356 (1886)
There are two political jurisdictions in the land we know as America. 1) a Federal Corporation that has franchised, invaded the States, Counties, etc., and populated itself via fraud with U.S. Citizens and 2) a union of states, populated with we, the free People. We, the people, have all of our unalienable rights intact as recognized by the founding documents in America. We are the energy, the operators behind the fictional commercial entity aka the strawman, the “U.S. Citizen,” the surrogate, the debtor, the avatar, etc. The Feds created this strawman and regulate it under the U.S. Code, and other “legal” laws.
In our opinion, the preferred solution is to separate ourselves from this strawman, this surrogate, and maintain that we are NOT that name in caps, that paper, that account that the Feds created without our consent. As people, we challenge the jurisdiction of the Federal Corporation and its franchises and hold its employees personally accountable for violations of our unalienable rights. We are the “Administrators” of the NAME IN CAPS that the Feds created.
Here’s Burt’s story…
The federal government cannot lawfully use or abuse their power to tax as a means to redistribute wealth among private parties who are NOT also “federal personnel” or “public officers” within the U.S. govt. A “U.S. Citizen” is a “franchise” of the Federal Corporation. Read this to learn more: [download id=”26″]
Do we, the people control corporations or do corporations, including the Federal Corporation, control we, the people? Have you seen the application the U.S. State Dept. wants some of us to complete in order to receive a passport? Does our birth certificate make us a slave? What is a “citizen?” In the land we know as America, this has become a complicated question.
“The United States shall guarantee to every State in this Union a Republican Form of Government, and shall protect each of them against Invasion; and on Application of the Legislature, or of the Executive (when the Legislature cannot be convened) against domestic Violence.” United States Constitution 8 Article IV, Section 4
Any attempt to convert private rights to public rights without the consent of the owner is a denial of a Republican form of government MANDATED by the United States constitution. The main basis for a republican form of government is PRIVATE, INDIVIDUAL, PERSONAL rights.
Here’s the story of how Burt, a naturalized citizen, renounced his U.S. citizenship, in accordance with the policies set forth by the Dept. of State, and became a member of the body politic of “stateless” men and women known as “the people,” with standing recognized in the 9th and 10th amendments.
“In common usage, the term “person’ does not include the Sovereign, statutes employing the word person are ordinarily construed to exclude the Sovereign.” Wilson v Ohm aha Tribe, 442 U.S. 653, 667 (1979) (quoting United States v Cooper Corp., 312 U.S. 600, 604 (1941)
Further, in his documents, Burt also chose to ally himself with the “sovereign people, on the land, and in the state known as Colorado.” This returns to Burt all of the rights that he waived unknowingly when he became a U.S. Citizen; it returns to Burt the right to alter and abolish bad govt. as recognized in America’s founding documents.
The basic approach Burt is taking to noticing, exercising and defending his rights can be summarized as follows:
- Renounce your existing contracts with the United States, Inc.
- Announce your allegiance to the other free people, on the land in your state.
- Put principals, agents, etc. on notice that you intend to defend your rights against trespass. Give them 21 days to object to the terms of the new contract you have drafted.
- Provide a remedy in the form of a fee schedule in the event of violation of your rights.
- Prosecute violations aggressively in a court of record.
“The principle that the majority have a right to rule the minority, practically resolves all government into a mere contest between two bodies of men, as to which of them shall be masters, and which of them slaves; a contest, that-however bloody–can, in the nature of things, never be finally closed, so long as man refuses to be a slave.” Lysander Spooner
“Section 349 of the Immigration and Nationality Act 8 U.S.C. 1481 as amended, states that U.S. citizens are subject to loss of citizenship if they perform certain specified acts voluntarily and with the intention to relinquish U.S. citizenship. Briefly stated, these acts include…formally renouncing U.S. citizenship before a U.S. diplomatic or consular officer outside the United States (sec. 349 (a) (5) INA)…”
Outside the United States means outside the 10 square miles that is the territory we know as the District of Columbia; a consular office is equivalent to a notary public.
Goals of A Journey to Freedom
- To discuss the real source of our freedoms and what our rights are as US “citizens” and as “people”.
- To discuss some of the basics from our founding documents.
- To document folks renouncing their U.S. citizenship to provide “prima facie” evidence.
- To publish folks’ self-documented “prima facie” evidence.
prima facie -A fact presumed to be true unless it is disproved. In common speech the term prima facie is used to describe the apparent nature of something upon initial observation.
The 1st episode of the Story of Burt, a Free People, is part of Musicians 4 Freedom’s A Journey to Freedom project in which we feature and document musicians, artists, filmmakers, and activists renouncing our U.S. Citizenship, aka, our FREED SLAVE (14th amendment) status.
14 CJS section 4 quotes State v. Manuel 20 NC 122: “… the term `citizen’ in the United States, is analogous to the term `subject’ in the common law; the change of phrase has resulted from the change in government.”
SUBJECT: “Constitutional Law. One that owes allegiance to a sovereign and is governed by his laws. The natives of Great Britain are subjects of the British government. Men in free governments are subjects as well as citizens; as citizens they enjoy rights and franchises; as subjects they are bound to obey the laws. The term is little used, in this sense, in countries enjoying a republican form of government.” Swiss Nat. Ins. Co. v. Miller, 267 U.S. 42, 45 S. Ct. 213, 214, 69 L.Ed. 504. Blacks fifth Ed.
The Constitution refers to people born in one of the 50 states as “natural born Citizens” (2:1:5), “free Persons” (1:2:3) and “Citizens of a State” (3:2:1 and 4:2:1). On the basis of this criterion alone, the natural born State Citizen enjoys a significant privilege which is not enjoyed by a person who must apply for residence as a privilege granted by government. What is a person?
“All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside.” Section 1, 14th Amendment
However, this set of so-called “rights,” actually privileges, of the citizen is a subset of the “rights” of the people. Once you have renounced your citizenship, you have all of your God-given rights, as recognized in this nation’s founding documents, in particular, the 9th and 10th amendments, restored and available to you, including your right not to subject yourself to the jurisdiction of the U.S. and/or the jurisdiction of the State wherein you reside. These are your natural rights that are “eclipsed” by man-made constitutional citizenship.
“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. — That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed…” The Declaration of Independence
Please read this information about the 14th Amendment. Make no mistake about it; the United States is a corporation with its headquarters in D.C. The question is, are you an owner or are you an employee? Because if you are an employee, aka a citizen, aka wage slave, you will be ordered around and receive a few privileges necessary to get the job done while you’re busy earning profits for your bosses. However, because of your status, as a citizen, you will not be eligible to receive the benefits of ownership such as dividends and perks, which are reserved for “the people” as recognized in America’s founding documents. Check out the Corporation Nation for more.
Here’s a link to the U.S. Code where the United States is defined as a corporation. Check out this quote. Some say it’s a “patriot myth.” I’ll leave that for you to figure out:
“Inasmuch as every government is an artificial person, an abstraction, and a creature of the mind only, a government can interface only with other artificial persons. The imaginary, having neither actuality nor substance, is foreclosed from creating and attaining parity with the tangible. The legal manifestation of this is that no government, as well as any law, agency, aspect, court, etc. can concern itself with anything other than corporate, artificial persons and the contracts between them.” S.C.R. 1795, Penhallow v. Doane’s Administraters (3 U.S. 54; 1 L.Ed. 57; 3 Dall. 54), Supreme Court of the United States 1795
Did you know that the phrase, “sovereign citizen,” which is an oxymoron, is not found in either the Constitution or the Declaration of Independence? The Journey to Freedom project is about both freedom and sovereignty, however, it is not associated with the “Sovereign Citizen” movement.
