Anything ‘lawful’ is a creature of the law of the land, the common law. Therefore a thing might be legal, but not lawful, and vice versa. It is of great importance that this difference is understood. We grow up in a corporate world, and this is a first step in finding the world outside the corporate box. CONFLICT? Y/N? • The idea is to avoid conflict, that is a contest in court. Therefore the actions you take are aimed at avoiding this courtroom contest or conflict. It begins with you conducting yourself in an honorable and ethical manner. This will work to your benefit. DIAMONDS • The problem that has been created for us is that we have to wade through the excrement government has created to find the diamonds of freedom. But, with some effort to acquire some knowledge and understanding, we can accomplish this. It is up to us. PERSON • We begin by understanding that we are not a ‘person’. A person is a legal fiction which is created by government. You may have a person, but you are not a person. This understanding is very important to your success, remember it. Creating a Legal Person • A legal person was created with the registration of a birth certificate. Generally the birth certificate is registered (not recorded) with the Bureau of Vital Statistics. This creates a legal person which is not you. Therefore, separate your identity from this legal fiction (person). Statutes • Statutes are the rules or by-laws of a closed society and they do not apply to you as a natural man (or woman) of the land. They apply to your person, the legal fiction that was created by government through the registration of the birth certificate. But government is quite willing to hold your pocket book and body accountable for this legal fiction if you give them the opportunity. Compassion • If it is your goal to be a freeman upon the land, then you must treat government agents (police, clerks, administrators, code enforcement personnel) with compassion. Yes, I know it is difficult when they are causing you so much grief, but with knowledge, you will turn that into grief for them. They are the ones bound by the rules they’ve created, not you. FREEMAN • A freeman on the land is a human being in a common law jurisdiction who has revoked consent to be represented and thus governed and thus not subject to any statutory obligations, restraints, bylaws, or orders. This is not to be interpreted that you are without law, for if you harm someone you can be held accountable. Social Security Number (U. S.) Social Insurance Number (Canada) • It has been ruled that only employees pay into a retirement plan. Therefore, the social security and/or social insurance number is evidence that the holder is also an employee of the agency from which the number is issued. In this case the ‘agency’ is the government who will use this number to put you inside their quick sand box of statutory rules and regulations. Roman Law Maxim • A maxim of Roman Law which carries forth to today is: “Let he who would be deceived, be deceived.” Which is to say, if your ignorance allows you to be deceived, then so be it… Deception is allowed under the law and it occurs all the time. So there is truly a price to pay for ignorance of the law. They should know, they’ve made certain none of us are educated in law in public school. Child / Parent Relationship • Children are regulated by their parents who are responsible for them and their conduct. When the child is no longer dependent, and no longer a liability, the child ceases to be a child and now becomes a responsible adult. Child / Government-Parent Relationship • If government, with our help, can establish that we are making it responsible for us, then a child / parent relationship has been established, giving government statutory control of our lives. This is why we must have permission (license) to do certain things. Legal vs. Lawful • Anything you do with license within the legal framework of statute law, you must also be able to do lawfully outside that frame work without license or else the licensing authority is licensing unlawful activity. Can you get license to commit robbery? Can you get license to commit assault? Anything you can do with license, can be done lawfully without license. But only if your assert your right to do so. The Question • The question here proposed is: “Who is going to be master?” Is government going to be your master, controlling every aspect of your life. Or, in the alternative, are you going to be the master of yourself? HOW TO BE MASTER • Remembering that we have been acting like children in a dependency status, we must reverse roles. Therefore we must treat the government agents & employees like children. With sternness but also with a measure of compassion. Most government agents are honorable people, just like you, remember that and treat them accordingly. Also remember, they were educated in the same schools as you. HOW TO BE MASTER (cont.) • If you know what is right, and what is wrong in their legal frame work, and are willing to sacrifice (that is be arrested and yet stand up with honor) they will soon not want to deal with you. How to stand up and claim your rights and status is coming. You begin by noticing the government agent(s) that everything they are requiring you to do is done under protest and duress. What To Question • When going through a legal process, it is important that you do not question their intelligence, their honor, their integrity, or anything else that can be construed as condescending, you will fare much better. Only question the words they are using to claim authority and their knowledge of what those words mean. Bill of Exchange • “A three party instrument in which the first party draws an order for the payment of a sum certain on a second party for payment to a third party at a definite future time.” – Black’s Law Dictionary, Sixth Edition. Bill of Exchange - Example • • • • First party – Traffic Cop Second party – you Third party – court. Therefore a traffic citation is a “Bill of Exchange” and you are due the original, not a copy, and yes, this will put the officer in a bind. Accept Everything • Accept everything a government agent or officer wishes to give to you. Yes, you know it’s a mud pie, but you don’t want to make the individual cry, so you accept it. Now they are going to be able to eat this mud pie with you, and the next frame tells how. Set Your Conditions • You accept the mud pie because you don’t wish conflict, but you set your conditions. You will note at least two conditions under which you accept it (Under protest, under duress). Under protest because you don’t want to do business with this individual, and under duress because individual is clothed in authority of government and maybe has a hand gun. Duress • Duress might also occur because you have your family with you and they have no other means of getting home unless you take them home. One or more of them might be ill and in need of care or treatment. There are many causes for duress in a traffic stop or other government agent intervention. Accepted for Value • This process of accepting, is generally known as “accepted for value”. But it would be better termed “accepted as valuable.” It is important to know what can be accepted as valuable. For example, a notice has no value and can not be accepted for value. Orders are Valuable • If you place an order at McDonalds, you are immediately liable for payment of that order. It is the same everywhere. Therefore, if a judge (or government) gives you an order to pay $1000, you have a right to accept the order and submit a bill for $2000 or whatever value you feel the order is worth. They are liable for ‘bills’ as soon as they give you an order. Security Interest • A security interest is anything, tangible or intangible, which can generate or create an obligation to either pay or perform a service. Any document which creates an obligation to pay or perform a service, is a security interest. If it is not about a security interest you don’t even want to talk to them. It is all about an obligation to pay or perform. Security Interest Examples • • • • A traffic ticket. Any municipal violation A court order. Any order by a government agent. Grace • We always have a 3 day grace period on any transaction of a security interest. This includes parking tickets, court orders, municipal violation, etc. During this time, anything that would nullify or void a contract will also nullify or void ab initio any transaction of a security interest. But you must serve notice within three days through a notary public. • Ab initio = From the beginning Rejection • Rejection, nullification or voiding a transaction of a security interest may occur through mistake, fraud, duress, coercion, or simply ‘I didn’t want to contract’. Serve notice within the grace period. Probably through a notary public. We have all the power if only we choose not to remain ignorant and exercise it. Notices: Step #1 • In civil conflicts of a previous time, judges always wanted to see the notices. If there were no notices, the claim was dismissed because the other party was not noticed of the understanding or intent. It is an element of honorable conduct to notice the opponent. It begins with a notice of understanding. Notices: Understanding & Intent • If there is a potential conflict, it was common to issue a notice of understanding. This is step #1. This is affected party’s opportunity to discuss the matter with you. If they do not, then they accept or share your understanding. Give them at least ten days to respond. Step #2 • If they share or accept your understanding, then you serve them with your notice of intent. Again, give them at least ten days to respond from the date they will receive the notice. They now have an opportunity to discuss or negotiate this with you. Step #3 • If they do not contest or dispute your notice of intent, you then hit them with your claim of right. They now have at least ten days to dispute this claim of right and if they do not, it is cured. You win. From this point forward, everything you do within your intent is supported by a claim of right. Default Judgment • If properly pursued, the Notary Public, as a judicial officer, has the authority to issue a default judgment. The notary is a witness. A witness to a process. Before going to court you offer to mediate, discuss or negotiate. If they refuse, the notary can enter a default judgment. Notice of understanding; notice of intent; notice of claim; default judgment. All processed through the notary. Recapping Notary Instructions • Notary will witness the attestation and affidavit, a notice of understanding, a notice of intent, and a claim of right. This is the notary’s job. • Notary will open a file in his office and keep originals of all of these documents. • Continued . . . Notary Instruction Continued • Notary will create certified true copies and cause them to be served upon the other party, or Notary will give them to you, and you will see that they are served and return a certificate of service to the Notary Public. • Continued . . . Notary Instruction Continued • After serving the claim of right, Notary will wait ten days from date of service in order to give the affected party time to accept the claim silently, or send you a sworn and attested affidavit created upon their full commercial liability. Notary Instruction Continued • If, within ten days, the affected party responds with a sworn and attested affidavit, Notary will notify you of contest. If there is an absence of contest Notary will create and sign a default judgment. Think • Think how this might be applied. Perhaps in building a garage without permits. Notice of understanding; notice of intent; notice of claim. Notice of Understanding • You do not need to have the same level of understanding as an attorney to construct a notice of understanding. Whatever level of understanding you have is sufficient for you to act upon. If you have determined that the vehicle code is too confusing and you don’t understand it, this can be your notice of understanding. “I don’t understand any of your words.” Wash my floor • The government agent wants you to ‘wash his floor.’ You don’t see a contract. Agent shows you his gun. ‘OK, that will get your floor washed but it’s not a contract.’ ‘Further, you have three days to show me a contract that obligates me to wash your floor and gives you the right to use your gun to compel me to do so.’ Guess who now gets to determine the terms of this contract? Be certain to have a fee schedule ready. Protest & Duress • You are always acting under protest and duress. They (government agents and police) are required to note this on the appropriate form (citation or report). If it is not noted, then note it yourself before signing. You now have three days to render it void ab initio. You may also serve notice that it was not noted as you requested. Notary Public • You use a lawyer to win conflict, you use a Notary Public to avoid conflict. If you use a notice of understanding, a notice of intent, and claim of right, you must use a notary public. Notary Duties • They may attest or protest commercial or other instruments. A notary public also has the power to create administrative judgments. Society • A statute is a rule of a society that is given the force of law. What is the name of your society? Are you a member? Do you have evidence or knowledge of being a member? It is a maxim that if you do not know the name of a thing, all knowledge of that thing must perish. If you have no knowledge or evidence of being a member of a society, then are you a member? Societies have names. Rules (Laws) of a Society • If a statute is a rule of a society that has been given force of law and you do not know the name of the society or have intentional membership, then how do these society rules (laws) apply to you? All the statutes that have been given force of law, are for the members of that society only. Proof • Only they (society members) can make the rules & regulations. You are not allowed to pen these. If you go into court, they claim only they have complete understanding of these words. Unless you are a member of that society you can not understand these words (statutes). Society Language • A society can create its own language for its members and only those members will understand this language. This can be done by taking an existing language, say English, change the meanings of a few words, and have an entirely new language that only society members understand. This would be the statutory laws of the United States. Magnificent Deception • The ability to create a language that sounds like and looks very similar to English is the Magnificent Deception. Non-society (non-lawyer) people read the law, and to them it looks like English, but it is not. And because these ordinary people do not know what the words mean, they find themselves compromised and obligated by deception. Escaping • These (statutory) rules bind the lawyers, the judges & the law enforcement community. It is only necessary for us to step out of their society box and suddenly, all of their rules apply to them, and not to those who have stepped out of the box. Recapping • If asked for your name, do they want a legal or lawful one? You do not have a legal name. You have no last name, you have a family name. John Quincy: Adams (John Quincy colon Adams – the colon separates your family name.) Know who you are! Recapping • You ask, “under what authority are you acting?” If it is against the law, then what law? Officer: “The controlled substance law.” You: “That’s an act and statute, not a law.” If it were law it would not be necessary to give it force and effect of law. Recapping • Until you provide ID they have no evidence that you are a person liable & obligated under the statute. They can not win without your help! If they do not see ID, they can not give you a ticket. Recapping • Ask, “is this a transaction of a security interest?” If he don’t know then you say, “clearly it can not be.” You can not engage in a transaction of a security interest in ignorance. If this is not a transaction of a security interest the officer will not be generating an obligation upon you to pay or perform, so why are you talking to him? Wish him a good day and say good-bye Recapping • If the officer says, “Yes, this is a transaction of a security interest.” You respond, “you need my consent for such a transaction and I do not give consent. Have a nice day, good-bye.” Upon Demand • You are not obligated to have an ID card, but the officer is. Upon demand by you, he must produce an ID and business card with badge numbers that matches the number on his badge. If he doesn’t show you these, he is out of uniform and you do not have evidence he is a police officer. If he orders you to do anything, it is under protest & duress. Order? • Ask the officer if he is giving you an order. If yes, good, this makes him liable for a bill, and your time is $200 an hour. Drivers License, Registration, Insurance • This is what the officer wants when he stops you. You respond, “Are you willing to claim under full commercial liability that I have an obligation to have such a thing in order to exercise my common law rights?” Finding a PERSON • Law enforcement needs to establish that they are dealing with a person. For this they need two things, a last name and a date of birth. You have no last name, you have a family name, and you do not know your date of birth. You only have hear-say knowledge that you might have been born on a certain date at a certain time, but you could not prove it in court, it’s only hear-say. PERSON Birth Date • They are looking for a legal fiction, a person. And they can pin point exactly when that legal fiction person was born. But not us. At least till we open our big mouth and sink our own ship. Remember the old WWII Navy slogan: “Loose lips sink ships! ! !” Subjecting You • If the officer tries to subject you to a law, statute or act. . . • Your question: “What evidence do you have at this time that I am obligated to this act, law or statute?” • When police see there is a person they can act upon, they will often act very, very quickly. Nanny • Many police are aware of the duality, the person and the natural man of the land which have similar sounding names. Many police wish we would grow up, they are tired of being a NANNY and enforcing all of these baby laws on us. You may well find that you get more support than you would think. But being caustic and antagonizing will not help you! ID • If you are not using your person that day, leave him home. That way he will not be found if they search you.
