The CORE Problem
• Simply put, it’s the national debt. Some
American’s think that we owe this debt to
ourselves. We do not! It is owed to a cartel
of private individuals through the banks they
own. The Federal Reserve Bank is central
to this issue here in the United States, and
in a global sense, the International
Monetary Fund (IMF) is included.
It All Relates
• And although this series of presentations
may travel many avenues of history, they
all relate to the CORE problem, the
national debt. I believe all the information
presented in this series to be crucial to
comprehending the problem(s) of the
United States today.
Assassination of Lincoln
• We left off with the assassination of
President Lincoln. As matters would have
it, Lincoln needed money to carry on the
war with the southern States. He applied
for a loan with the international bankers,
and they wanted 24 to 36 percent interest.
Outraged, Lincoln declined to accept…
• Instead, Lincoln asked Congress to
authorize the issuance of full legal tender
treasury notes. Congress complied and
the notes were issued, later to become
known as “Lincoln Greenbacks.” This
deprived the international bankers of the
stranglehold they wanted on the United
Five days after the South
• Five days after Robert E. Lee
(Confederate States) surrendered to
General Grant (Union Army), President
Lincoln was assassinated in Ford Theater
by an actor, John Wilkes Booth. Booth
shot Lincoln in the back of the head.
John Wilkes Booth
• When Booth's diary was recovered by Stanton's
troops, it was delivered to Stanton. When it was
later produced during the investigation,
eighteen pages had been ripped out. These
pages, containing names, were later found in
the attic of one of Stanton's descendants.
• Continued…
Rothschild, a name to
• From Booth's trunk, a coded message was
found that linked him directly to Judah P.
Benjamin, the Civil War campaign manager in
the South for the House of Rothschild. When
the war ended, the key to the code was found
in Benjamin's possession. Therefore, there is
a direct link to the Rothschild Banking
Dynasty, one of the owners of the Federal
Reserve Bank.
The rifle that supports it…
• So Lincoln was assassinated, and he did not
terminate the marshal law he had declared.
And neither has any President of the United
States since that time. Therefore, Congress
is still unconstitutionally setting under the
illegally declared marshal law and the rifle
that supports it. This works to the benefit of
the creditor of the United States (the elite
Collecting the Collateral
• The debt that came out of the Civil War
was due and payable in 1871. Our
leadership failed to pay the debt, and we
defaulted. England then collected the
collateral, all the property owned by the
Federal Government, including
Washington, District of Columbia. It was
all done very quietly.
Completely Separate
• England, as the new sovereign of the District
[of Columbia], forced incorporation. Thus was
born a new British owned corporation, “The
United States.” Yes, the word “the” is included
in the name and it’s name is intended to trick
you. This British corporation should not be
confused with the republic of these united
States of America. They are completely
• As a matter of fact, there are three United
States defined in law, a fact not taught by
the public school systems of the United
States. I wonder why?
• United States. This term has several
meanings. It may be merely the name of a
sovereign occupying the position
analogous to that of other sovereigns in a
family of nations, [continued…]
U. S. Defined
• it may designate territory over which
sovereignty of United States extends, or it
may be collective name of the states
which are united by and under the
Constitution. Hooven & Allison Co. v.
Evatt, U.S.Ohio, 324 U.S. 652, 65 S.Ct.
870, 880,89 L.Ed. 1252. – [Blacks Law
Dictionary, Sixth Edition]
Union States
• “It may be merely the name of a sovereign
occupying the position analogous to that of
other sovereigns in a family of nations…”
• Defines the Union States, like Delaware,
Connecticut, California, Texas, etc.
Corporate United States
• “it may designate territory over which
sovereignty of United States extends…”
• Defines the British owned corporate
United States, the jurisdiction of the
District [of Columbia].
U. S. Republic
• “or it may be collective name of the states
which are united by and under the
• Defines the republic of these United States
of America.
“THE” and “THESE”
• Therefore, if you are claiming “United States
citizenship”, it might be good to know of which
United States you are claiming to be a citizen.
It changes your status and the body of law to
which you are subject. That’s why we pay
attention to “THE” as in the United States
(corporate) and “THESE” as in these united
States of America (republic). Remember, the
language of the law is very technical!
An Observation
• Some of us may have read the
Constitution and know that there is no
provision for a corporate Federal
Government. But when the law has been
broken so much by this point, there is
evidently no turning back, either that, or no
one in a position of leadership cares.
The debt still had to be paid
• So, in 1871, the leadership of these united
States of America defaulted on the debt,
and the collateral was collected, but the
debt still existed. And by virtue of the
security agreement (the Constitution), the
debt defaulted to the other “United States”,
the Union States.
Remaking the Country
• With Lincoln’s Marshal Law in effect, the
Constitution was set aside and ceased to be
the law of the land. With the Constitution set
aside, the President, the Congress (still
setting unconstitutionally at the will of the
President), and the Courts all presumed that
they were free to remake the country into
anything they wanted. What an opportunity
for a creditor of the United States.
General Orders No. 100
• The code Lincoln constructed under General
Orders No. 100, unlawfully (criminally)
extended Article I, Section 8, Clauses 17 &
18, which pertain to the District of Columbia,
beyond the boundaries of Washington, D.C.
into the several states. The idea was to
create the means to make unconstitutional
laws within the Union States.
The Fourteenth Amendment
• In 1868 the Fourteenth Amendment to the
constitution was ratified under the musket
(military martial law), creating a new class
of citizenship which also aided in expansion
of the jurisdiction of Washington, District of
Columbia, into the Union States.
Additional Elements
• General Orders No. 100 also brought the
Laws of War, as well as International Law,
to American soil, and the new Marshal
Law government Lincoln created became
the presumed conqueror of the people of
the United States, and the land.
The Field Code
• In general, the Union States, like
California, New York, etc., became a
corporate Franchise of the Federal
Corporation (“the United States”) when the
State enacted the “Field code” into law.
The “Field Code” was the common law
codified, and was first adopted by New
York, to be followed by California in 1872.
A Corporate Franchise
• The municipal corporate States that were
created are entities of the Federal
Government, the British corporation, since
they are a corporate franchise of the
(corporate) Federal Government. These
federal franchises have federal identities,
such as CA for California instead of Calif.
NV for Nevada instead of Nev., etc.
• Today, these corporate franchises have ZIP
codes. ZIP = Zone Improvement Plan, more
specifically, Federal Zone Improvement Plan.
If you have a ZIP code then you have a
federal identification number, and this might
be evidence you are in a Federal Zone, and
subject to unconstitutional Federal, District
of Columbia, Law.
All Kept Secret
• For about a hundred-sixty-years now,
martial law has never ended during which
time the nation has been under Military
Law of the Commander-in-Chief the entire
time, all kept secret from the American
people. Question: “Who does our elected
leadership represent?” Hint: “It’s not us!”
Defaulting again
• So the Union States were now on the hook
to pay the debt. And research indicates it
was due and payable in 1909, and again
the leadership we elect, defaulted. We
asked for more time, and that was granted
with stipulations. And one such stipulation
was that we create a central bank.
• Meeting the stipulation set forth in 1909,
legislation establishing the privately owned
Federal Reserve Bank was enacted in
December of 1913. Thus, a private banking
system was given control over the economy
and money of the United States. But our
leadership got a twenty-year time extension
to pay our debt.
The power to…
• “The Congress shall have power to… coin
money, regulate the value thereof, and of
foreign coin, and fix the standard of weights
and measures…” – United States
Constitution, Article I, Section 8, Clause 5.
Legal Tender
• “No State shall… make anything but gold
and silver coin a tender in payment of
debts.” – United States Constitution,
Article I, Section 10.
• And “The United States” is a State in the
language of the law, not a Union State, but
a State nonetheless.
No power to…
• Notice that the Constitution does not give
Congress the power to turn over the
finances, economy and creation of legal
tender in the payment of debt to any
privately owned bank, including the
privately owned Federal Reserve Bank.
Can you be free?
• It’s now 1929 and the debt is due and
payable by the Union States. And, once
again, the leadership we elect defaults,
failing to pay our debt. Do you think you
can be dishonorable and free? If you do
not pay your debts, do you think you can
be free?
It’s going to get worse
• So here we are, it’s 1929 and the Great
Depression is arriving. Not surprising
when we don’t pay our debts and a
privately owned bank is in control of our
currency (legal tender in payment of
debts), i.e., money. We haven’t operated
under lawful civil authority since Lincoln
declared Marshal Law, but it’s going to get
• This ends this segment, we’ll pick up with
the Great Depression era in the next
segment. Right now it’s time for discussion
and exchange of views.
