This is a topic that serves as the perfect opportunity to utilize my book in its intended digital form, as a massive reference source to pull from as part of any researcher’s due diligence process. In fact, this entry could be seen as a summary of the book series. Many of the quotes and sources below were harvested from my 1st book, which is free to download in pdf form at (StrawmanStory.info). This serves as a perfect opportunity to put to rest all the fallacious rhetoric out there of exactly what a strawman is, what its creator is, and to whom it applies.

Today’s topic: what is a “Taxpayer,” and what relation is a “taxpayer” to a “straw man,” why the truth/patriot movement has it all wrong, and why the IRS is so intent on making sure each of us remain without comprehension through its own official publications? As we will see in the IRS published whitewash paper below, the best way for government and its agencies to hide facts is to hide those facts behind the public’s misinterpretation of them. What government needs propaganda when its citizen-ships are creating their own lies and calling them as mainstream or alternative truths?

Firstly, we must get to the root of just what this legal “strawman” is. In its simplest explanation, we merely need to understand the legal (artificial) concept of personhood as compared to what is Real. For a man’s persona (mask) is never actually the man (as form without substance). In short, the legal term strawman is merely the personification (legal identity) of a classic strawman argument — a logical fallacy brought into artificial (legal) existence as a fictional, commercial vessel. And when we go to court, we present ourselves as if we actually are the mask (persona) we legally operate in, which is legally called as an appearance. The actual Living (True) man appears as an actor (agent) in personification (mask) of a legal entity created by and thus property of government, from which he or she makes legal arguments and accepts administrative decisions. When we go to court, we put this strawman forward as bail and act in surety (puppet master) to it, causing us to be bound by whatever judgement is placed upon it (the person/legal identity). To be clear, all legal law (government) applies only to the strawman, the government’s created property, never to any man… unless that is he is acting in surety to that person (property). When we rent a car (vessel), are we not bound by the law of government (law of the road) and by the rules of the owner of that property? As surety for that person (property/commercial vessel of government), whatever is assigned as punishment for the person (strawman) is thus sanctioned and thus put upon (imposted) upon the man (actor/agent) using that persona in commerce.

And so the strawman argument has been turned into a seemingly realistic and inseparable part of the man in surety to it, causing the appearance of responsibility for the actions and contractual (legal) obligations assigned to it, including the entirety of the US CODE when proven applicable to the person (strawman).

And so the court’s argument is essentially this: the strawman committed a legal (fictional) crime in the fictional (legal) realm we created, and though no actual harm has happened to anyone or anything in Reality, in Nature, we are charging the strawman (person) with a legal crime against another legal (fictional) person, place, or thing, and therefore as surety to that strawman (person), we expect you to pay for the strawman’s crime!

And so we can see that the court just personified a logical fallacy. It created a strawman (artificial, legal identity in form but no substance) at the time of your Live Birth, induced you to use that persona (status) in life to receive benefits and legal “consumer protections,” and so convinced you that this is actually your identity in Reality, in a voluntary agency relationship, and then expects you to be responsible for any extortions, exactions, punishments and pains it prescribes to that fictional, legal persona (mask), which again is all government (corporate) property.

To appear in the jurisdiction of a the United States (district corporation) is to appear in legal form only, without substance (without blood), the very definition of a straw man. For, as defined, what is made of straw is a metaphor that means without substance. To be clear, all legal persons, places, and things (nouns/names) are without substance. Nothing legal is Real. What is legal does not Exist in Nature. It is only ever a creation of man, and defines the forces of Nature as an “Act of God” in all insurance policies, or in other words, not an act of the state (fiction) or any of its property (persons, places, or things). An “Act of God,” then, is never the act of a strawman (person), nor is it an act of man. The point here is to understand that government recognizes and defines “God” (Jehovah) as a higher power, a sovereign authority and Law than itself, and that it and its persons (property) stand helpless before an Act of God (Reality/Nature), and therefore its fictional insurance (based in mammon) cannot cover any damages caused to fictional things (legal property) unless a specific Act of God is covered (i.e. “earthquake insurance,’ “flood insurance”).

Indeed, the maxims (principles) of law clearly show this to be True:

Maxims On God

“An act of God does wrong to no one.

“The act of God does no injury;
that is, no one is responsible for inevitable accidents.”

“No one is held to answer for the effects of a superior force,
or of an accident, unless his own fault has contributed.”

–=–
Maxims On Appearance
–=–

“He who does anything through another (e.g. a person/strawman),
is considered as doing it himself.

“What does not appear does not exist,
and nothing appears judicially before judgment.”

Fact not appearing is presumed not to exist.”

Concerning things not appearing and things not existing,
the rule (reasoning, conclusion) is the same.”

“A thing which is not made to appear is regarded
as if
it could not be made to appear and did not therefore exist.

The court has nothing to do with what is not before it.

–=–

A man cannot appear (have artificial life/existence) in fiction, just as a cartoon cannot appear (have artificial life/existence) anywhere but in the fictional cartoon realm. A legal persona (status) only “exists” in legal fiction. Thus, a man must pretend to appear in fiction (the artificial, legal jurisdiction of any court) by pretending to be a person (fictional character) in that legal (anti-Real/anti-Nature) realm. Without this fictional (legal) appearance by the puppet master, the puppet (person) is said to have not appeared.

THE VOLUNTARY CONNECTION AND ADMIXTURE OF REALITY TO FICTION MUST BE ESTABLISHED FOR THE LAWS OF FICTION (THE PERSON) TO BE APPLIED TO REALITY (THE MAN).

This is accomplished by attaching a legal surname (last name) to the first (christian) name, the word “last” carrying the meaning of last intention, or last will and testament (declared law). In law, the first name is considered as a God-given gift, a part of Nature, while the last name (Latin agnomen) is property of the state. This admixture of names, of fiction and Nature, is strictly forbidden by the Bible (Natural Law). Without this admixture of names, being registered (taxable) property of government, then the man (by first name only) is too ambiguous to be identified as a legal entity making an appearance. Appearance of a legal person requires the full, legal name to be answered to in volunteerism.

AGENCY – Includes every relation in which one person acts for or represents another by latter’s authority, where one person acts for another, either in the relationship of principal and agent, master and servant, or employer or proprietor and independent contractor… Properly speaking, agency relates to commercial or business transactions.

Remember that government also acts as a person (corporation) too, and that your relation to it can only be identified by the person (individual) you accept willfully under the doctrine of master and servant (volunteerism) and as agent for service of process to it as the person’s principal. Your relation to government exists only as a legal persona (status) or not at all. And you may only appear to government as its proprietary person (legal status) or as that of a foreign person (legal status), which is merely the person (property) of another legal nation, country, state, etc. (corporations). The difference? An employee is paid for his service, while a citizenship is exacted (extorted) and taxed for his service and reciprocal receipt of legal benefits and protections. But the term employee is merely a title placed upon a person, not a man. All legal titles can only be attached to legal persons, places, and things, but nothing in the Reality of Nature is ever actually its legally prescribed name or title. However, in Nature, it is only man that may choose his path, to follow the Law of God or to follow the anti-God, anti-Nature legal law of men.

Assemble yourselves and come; draw near together, ye that are escaped of the nations: they have no knowledge that set up the wood of their graven image, and pray unto a god that cannot save.

On that note, it is important to note that by default all men are considered to be “christian” in the Biblical sense, not as a standing, corporate religion or denomination, but as free men assumed by default to follow the Law of God, also called the True Natural Law. After all, man is of Nature, thus his Highest Law (Source) is thus considered to stem from the Creator (God) of Nature. Thus we may understand the notion that “all men are created equal.” However, once a man gives up his God-given rights and accepts the person (property) of another false god (nation), the man looses such Natural Rights, for nothing of Nature (God) exists in or respects anything in fiction. Keep in mind that only a man can be a follower of christ, as a True christian. A person is a fiction, a puppet, and cannot do anything without being driven by a man. This is why religions are, every one of them, as legally created corporations of the state, false. For they are attended by men acting in person (legal fiction), and over and over we are told that God respects no persons (fictions). Religions teach what they are required to teach as corporations of the state, which is to, above all else, follow the “law of the land,” meaning the law of man. This is, of course, absolutely opposed to the Law of God (Natural Law).

All men are indeed Created equal in Nature (under God), for no man is born with a status (persona) in Reality. But persons are legal creations of men, and are created specifically to be unequal, and to place upon them flattering titles of false (legal) authority and license (anarchy/lawlessness toward the Natural Law). To be clear, the fallacious term “equal rights” merely means that all persons (statuses) of (belonging to) the United States shall be EQUALLY PUNISHED UNDER THE LAW.

Volunteerism is performance without coercion. Citizenship is a performance debt (tacit contract of use) entered into voluntarily, just as an employee (servant) is a hired volunteer by the employer (master), for the employee is submissive (servant) to the will of the employer (master). The difference between the laws (doctrines) of “master and servant” and of “principal and agent” is that an agent is a representation of the principal. Indeed, an employee acts as an agent of its employer (principal) when the employee does business (commerce) in his master’s (employer’s/principal’s) name. In interstate commerce, a citizenship of the United States is an agent in all commercial affairs, and the 50 state governments are considered as foreign, third parties to any and all commercial activity. Government considers us to be in agency at all times, 24/7, as a default and without exception. This is, of course, a prima facie (surface) presumption, which is rebuttable.

An Act of God cannot “appear” in court (fictional jurisdiction). Only a fictional entity (legal status/person) may “appear” in the fiction (jurisdiction) of that court. If the man in surety does not answer to a legal name called out by the court, which identifies the man as surety to that person (property) of government, then the court cannot administrate its own property (person). The case cannot go forward without the agent in surety to the person being present by making an appearance (pretending to be the person). The only exception to this rule is the an attorney (agent) may appear in representation (simulation) of the person without the man in surety being present in the court.

The term injury, or in-jury, simply means that the “act” in question cannot be pulled into a court of law infant of a judge or jury, that one cannot take “God” or Nature to court. Silly as this sounds, we must acknowledge this system as it stands, not as we wish it to be. To injure means to bring into or under legal law. Thus what is an act of God (Nature) can do no wrong and can injure nothing fictional, for what is Real, what is of Nature, is always considered a “Creation” or Act of God. To support this notion, we find that nothing in Nature, nothing in its Natural state of Life or Existence can be patented. To work around this aspect, which comes from the Natural Law — that God’s Creation is God’s (sovereign) property higher than man’s authority to claim it, meaning that property does not exist in Nature, only in man’s legal fiction — the government issues license to “scientific” corporations and persons with the legal flattering title of “scientists” to re-create by genetic alteration, causing the Source of what Exists to be considered by the legal realm of artificial law as “manmade,” and no longer an act of God. And this is why our entire surface world, the Creation of God, from plants to animals to man, is being genetically altered to the point of being unrecognizable as a Creation or Act of God, and thus patentable as government property. This includes our genes.

While no legal (artificial) law applies to any man or to anything of God’s Creation in Nature (Reality), any man acting voluntarily (contractually) in the agency of and appearing as a registered legal persona (proprietary individual or corporation, etc.) of government is bound to all legal laws that apply to that person (strawman), just as one would be bound to the rules and laws encapsulating a rental car (rented commercial vessel). The courts address only persons, not men, and men may only address the courts in persona or in agency (as attorney) of the person, never as one’s True Self.

And so the strawman argument of the legitimacy of legal law by government in all its institutions, agencies, and departments is directed not at anything Real or of Nature, but only ever at the strawman persona (mask) that each man pretends and appears to be. For all legal persons, places, and things are property of (creations of) government. When we appear in court, in persona, we are misrepresenting ourselves as that which we are not — as that which we physically cannot be — as that which is artificial (legal). And so all proceedings against us will also be based upon this personified mis-representation of us, which is legally defined as a straw man.

The legal system simply has no power over any man unless that man acts in the property (person) of that legal system and its government. Without this contractual volunteerism (also known as the doctrine of master and servent) the true colors of each government would shine through, revealing the only avenue of control over men (Reality) left to it, which is strictly violent, military oppression and thus forced suppression. Dictatorship, as a direct and obvious force over men, not persons.

The court never addresses any man unless he stands in agency (attorney) for a person, as only a strawman that is created and thus bound by the creators (courts) law. A strawman is not of Nature, and so has no “God-given rights” referred to as the Natural Law. A strawman is bound to the law of persons, not the Law of Nature, for a strawman is never Created in Nature (by God). A strawman (person) is not “God-given,” and no law of Nature (Reality) can protect anything artificial (manmade), as that which is not a Creation of the Source of Nature.

He who controls the fiction controls the Real it re-presents.

He who dictates history controls what is the false (legal) truth (history) about the Real.

Thus, he who’s history is dictated by the information (form without substance) of the artificial creation of a legal entity created and registered by a legal birth certificate is the Real misrepresented and so controlled by the fiction (person) and its law.

Happy legal birth-day, strawman…

While we will get to the aforementioned IRS publication spoken of soon enough, we must have this further foundation in law to understand why it is fallacious. And so let us now equate just what a “taxpayer” is in conjunction to a “strawman.” Is a taxpayer Real, or is it a creation of the legal system and its government? Obviously a “taxpayer” is a title, and is certainly not part of what is self-evident and self-existent in Nature (Reality). And of course, what is a creation of the artifice must be defined by that artifice as its false creator god, giving it existence only by the words used to describe and bind it into legal word magic. In the end, a title is useless unless it can be placed upon and bound to in surety that which it is intended to subject or modify. No man holds any title, for titles don’t exist in Nature. No man is ever a “taxpayer.” Only a strawman (person) may hold such a title of flattery.

Just what does it mean to be taxed? What is a “taxpayer?” And are you or I one of them?

Remember, no man is ever a “taxpayer,” for no man is ever a person. Man must respect persons and flattering titles (property of government) before they can be assigned to him in the legal realm. Of course the foundational, Natural Law in scripture is very clear:

–=–

Let me not, I pray you, accept any man’s person:
neither let me give flattering titles unto any man.

—Job 32:21

–=–

That’s right, in one tiny verse the Bible just told us exactly why we are enslaved, because we respect persons (including corporations and governments) and flattering titles (including citizen and taxpayer). For only through the artificial persona and title may the good man be overcome.

All positions of power, of godship in magistracy, be it that of kings to presidents to congressmen to judges to mayors to police officers, comes strictly from the flattery of legal status (persona/mask) and of artificial flattery (titles, entitlements). But do not be fooled, for the flattery of titles extends to the “middle class,” the “common folk,” and “the poor” as well. These states of being do not Exist in Nature, unless Nature is made unavailable to those lower classes by the higher classes, causing dependence upon money instead of upon Nature (Source) Itself.

It is to be in error to call oneself as something one is not. In the Bible, we are taught to be content with merely being, as I AM. I AM part of God, and God alone is my Sovereign Master and Lawmaker. I stress again that this is recognized as the Highest Law by government. Only a fool would dismiss the Bible when all roads lead to it, when it is used to swear oath upon, and when the word God is mentioned so many times in both constitutions and in law, especially as “Acts of God.” What fool would not seek the definition and deeper meaning of the word God when his government states that God exists and is responsible for such inevitable and helpless “Acts?”

I can answer that, for we have all been made the fool by the organized, corporate church and state. I was the fool. But now I see…

When in the scripture stories Caesar stated that “all the world should be taxed,” this translation into English (dog-Latin) was left purposefully incomplete to say the least by the kings scribes, causing a purposeful mis-transliteration of the intent of that word. When we seek the True intent of this verse, we find in Strong’s Concordance and Thayer’s Greek Lexicon the difference between the Bible’s (Higher) language and the common, vulgar tongue of the mass of illiterates speaking dog-Latin (English), or what Mark Twain called as a “mongrel language” that borrowed its form from all others while extricating away the substance of poetic, metaphoric, and beautiful meaning for a more modern and cold literalism. Ask any speaker of the Greek language, for instance, and they will tell you that Greek is impossible to be Truly understood or communicated into the low form of English.

To be “taxed” (as it is translated) is not merely the exaction and extortion of money as we politically consider it. For as we just read above, to be taxed as a “taxpayer” one must first be identified as a “taxpayer,” and into this flattering title no man is ever merely born in Nature. It applies only to persons. One must first be militarily conquered, defeated, or purchased (as a volunteer) before one can be liable for such a tax. In other words, everything must be legally named (placed into noun form) so that the name (property) may be thus extorted. The precedent must exist before the tax can be applied.

Let us read again from above:

–=–

“…the taxpayer must be liable for the tax. Tax liability is a condition precedent (prior) to the demand. Merely demanding payment, even repeatedly, does not cause liability.” 

–Terry  v. Bothke, 713 F.2d 1405, at 1414 (1983)

–=–

It is not the man, but the persona (mask) governed (controlled) as property that it is liable for taxation. Taxation is a fee for the use of government property, namely for the use of its unique money system and fiat paper (credit). And so it was then in the day of Caesar as it is today in the United Nations and its Agenda 2030, a plan specifically purposed with the intention to tax (register as a legal identity) the entire planet, all the billions that even now Exist in Reality (Nature) without legal (government registered) name and title. In other words, the whole population of the world has been declared by the UN just as it was by Caesar — that it must be taxed!

But first, the precedent of proprietary global citizenship must be set worldwide, that all men may be extorted through taxation.

To tax all the men of the world, first the world must be reimagined (made into a legal realm as an international jurisdiction) — and all men must be re-created into legal persons (property) of every nation united. All men must be given Social Security through the United Nations, which is already present in over 140 nations through the International Social Security Association (ISSA) of the United Nations. One must be given a benefit before one can be voluntarily controlled (governed) and thus taxed for use of another’s property. And to receive any benefit from government, one must first assume the persona (subjection) of fiction it is attached to. And so the goal of registration (taxing) of all men in to fictional personhood is scheduled to happen by 2030 — the date that a global debtor’s prison is thus established, as hell on earth.

HELLThe name formerly given to a place under the exchequer (treasury) chamber, where the king’s debtors were confined. (Black4)

–=–

One need not confine men in prisons when they are bound to a performance debt wishing the jurisdictions (invisible walls) of nations.

But what does this word taxed actually mean when used by both Caesar in the Bible and by the United Nations? What was its intention in the scriptural texts?

Firstly, let’s break the fallacious notion that taxes are definitely not just the way it is nor as certain as death. Only public-minded, non compos mentis slaves think in this defeatist way, that what is artificial is a certainty (Reality), which is why most common citizenships pay their taxes on a regular basis. But to be taxed implies much, much more…

Strong’s #G583 – “Taxed” – apographō

From ἀπό (#G575), meaning: from, of, out of, for, off, by, at, in, since, on, etc…

And γράφω (#G1125), meaning: write, writing, describe.

1. To write off, copy (from some pattern)
2. To enter in a register or records

1. Specifically, to enter in public records the names of men, their property and income
2. To enroll

–=–

Quoting further from Thayer’s Greek Lexicon:

apographō (taxed)… To have one’s self registered, to enroll one’s self
those whose names are inscribed in the heavenly register, Hebrews 12:23
(the reference is to the dead already received into the heavenly city,
the figure being drawn from civil communities on earth,
whose citizens are enrolled in a register
).”

–=–

To copy, to simulate man into personhood… this is taxation. The registration of men into fictional, taxable (extort-able) characters in the legal fiction realm. It is a design to steal men away from their very Nature (God) and Law and to replace It with the false gods (idols) of the nations.

Here, as in most references in the Bible, the word dead or death is metaphorical, referring to a spiritual death of the soul while taxed (registered) in the person of the legal state and following its dead law in dead hands (mortmain) as dead pledges (mortgages). This state of spiritual death is caused by the following of the legal law over that of the Law of God (Nature). This is called, again, as personhood — to live a fictional (spiritually dead) life in pursuit of mammon (money and valuation) as a strawman.

And so we can see that no man owes any tax except he that agrees to be registered to any legal district (Caesar) voluntarily or is forced by other violent means. The term “taxpayer” is a title, representing a legal status, and is not of Nature (Reality). It is a creation of the state. It is not part of the Higher, moral Law of Nature. It is the result of coveting that which is artificial, namely what is referred to as the god of mammon, as the credit, debt, and valuation (love/belief) of and in money and its usage. For what is priceless (without or beyond artificial monetary value) cannot be taxed. And the maxims of law is clear that:

—=—

“The human body does not admit of valuation.

—CORPUS HUMANUM NON RECIPIT AESTIMATIONEM. Hob. 59. (Black4)

—=—

“The body of a freeman does not admit of valuation.

—Liberum corpus aestimationem non recipit. (BouvMaxim)

—=—

“That which is granted or reserved under a certain form, is not to be drawn into a valuation.

—Quod sub certa forma concessum vel reservatum est, non trahitur advalorem vel compensationem. Bacon’s Max. Reg. 4. (BouvMaxim)

—=—

The value of a thing is estimated by its worth in money, and the value of money is not estimated by reference to one thing.

—Res per pecuniam aestimatur, et non pecunia per res. 9 Co. 76; 1 Bouv. Inst. n. 922. (Black4)

—=—

“The wisdom of law cannot be valued by money.

—Sapientia legis nummario pretio non est aestemanda. (BouvMaxim)

—=—

“He that diligently seeketh good procureth favour:
but
he that seeketh mischief, it shall come unto him.
He that trusteth in his riches shall fall

—Proverbs 11: 27-28, KJB

—=—

Let us be clear, the flattering title of “taxpayer” is the placing of valuation upon a man through his strawman (persona/legal status), causing legal extortion of that human capital under governmental management (administrational law of persons). Once anything of Nature is so valued in mammon, it can never be Truly Free again in Nature until that value is discharged, for all that is Real is born (Created) priceless (without valuation). Only its name (noun – as a man-made, fictional person, place, or thing) and the artificial status that name creates can be controlled and thus validated as property of its creator. And only a name belonging to a corporate nation can be flatteringly titled as a “taxpayer,” never a Real man. Again, it is only man’s respect of persons and flattering titles that allows him to be taken in surety for the artificial crimes of the fictional strawman (person).

In other words, without respect of persons, no man may be voluntarily taxed under the burden and sanction (punishment) of the law of persons (contract).

Before we move on, let me put any fallacious arguments about just what volunteerism is to rest. To do this, let us just consider our so-called all-volunteer military. Yes, it is at this point in history a voluntary choice to join the armed (heraldic) services of the United States. But what happens to the volunteer once he has contracted to that military service? Does he walk around disobeying law and the orders of his superior officers just because he is a volunteer? No. And neither does a citizenship of any nation. The soldier has agreed to be under the doctrine of master and servant (volunteerism). To receive and use the flattering title and licenses (lawlessness) of “soldier” or “officer” one must follow the requirements and law of the granter of those titles, no matter how tyranical, for no Natural rights or protections may apply to fictional characters.

To be clear, to be a volunteer is not to have a magic word that allows one to break the law, even when that law is overtly immoral and outrageous to ones religious or True beliefs. Citizenship to the United States is a voluntary status (persona), and this point is not deferrable at bar. No force or gun is pointed at your head to be a citizen, only to follow the law that you voluntarily submitted to by becoming a citizen (a contractual relationship based on use of the person). See the difference?

For those begging the question of who exactly he or she “became a citizenship” of the United States, I urge you to read the confirmation and ratification sections of my book, Strawman: The Real Story Of Your Artificial Person, so that you may comprehend the process. (See pages 581-586, free to download at StrawmanStory.info)

Certainly the actions we do or do not do under law as citizen-ships of the United States cause what is called presumption of law. If we use the property of another and gain benefits from that use then we are bound to the obligations as well of that usage, which implies a contractual relation-ship and system of law governing that obligatory debt. Debt is either monetary or performance-based, meaning that one must perform the duty (obligation) of the right and status granted, to follow a legal course in pursuit of disharmony in mammon instead of a Natural one in pursuit of harmony with God’s Nature. Thus what is prima facie (avoidable) is made legitimate (unavoidable) by use of these legal statuses (strawmen) assigned in a blanket fashion over the general population.

One example of the presumption of fact that verifies the common, public citizenship to be bound by and under this trust act comes from the New York Second Class Cities Law, §22:

–=–

Officers, trustees of public property:

The common council and the several members thereof, and all officers and employees of the city are hereby declared trustees of the property, funds and effects of said city respectively, so far as such property, funds and effects are or may be committed to their management or control, and every taxpayer residing in said city is hereby declared to be a cestui que trust in respect to the said property, funds and effects respectively;  and any co-trustee or any cestui que trust shall be entitled as against said trustees and in regard to said property, funds and effects to all the rules, remedies and privileges provided by law for any co-trustee or cestui que trust; to prosecute and maintain an action to prevent waste and injury to any property, funds and estate held in trust; and such trustees are hereby made subject to all the duties and responsibilities imposed by law on trustees, and such duties and responsibilities may be enforced by the city or by any co-trustee or cestui que trust aforesaid. The remedies herein provided shall be in addition to those now provided by law.”

—New York Second Class Cities Law, sub-Section 22, New York Code

–=–

So what does it mean to be considered on the face as part of a cestui qui trust?

It means you are considered as a consort of that which is dead (legal fiction) — not a man in legal consideration, but a registered person sometimes called as a straw man. It means you have been granted artificial life within a legal matrix system and its code; one created not by God but by Caesar (a false god/district).

—=—

“For all the gods of the nations are idols…”

—Psalms 96:5, KJB

—=—

The word god is merely a generic term that can mean many different things unless specifically qualified. A god is a magistrate. Caesar was a god. Obama and Trump are/were gods. The pope and queen and the legislators are gods. Remember, this is the realm of the legal (anti-Nature) law, a devolution of Reality into fictional characters played by men under flattering titles and statuses. It is a realm built entirely of straw. Thus, the cestui qui trust of dead persons (defective statuses) called citizen-ships of the United States (district/Caesar) are the followers of false gods, idolators, worshiping what is not the Reality of Nature (Creation), and instead embracing the fictional creations of men acting as and in the perpetual (immortal) legal office, title, and in the capacity of gods.

The reason that the King’s translators used the word “god” for all positions (flattering titles) of men in authority is simply because the word god implies sovereignty, the power of ruling over other men. This is a requirement of sovereignty, which is why no man is ever sovereign unless he respects persons and bears the flattering title of some corporation (nation/state).

DEVOLUTIONnoun – [Latin] 1. The act of rolling down; as the devolution of earth into a valley. 2. Removal from one person to another; a passing or falling upon a successor. (Webs1828)

GODnoun – …2. A false god; a heathen deity; an idol. Fear not the gods of the Amorites. Judges 6:10. 3. A prince; a ruler; a magistrate or judge; an angel. Thou shalt not revile the gods, nor curse the ruler of thy people. Exodus 22:28. Psalms 97:7… 4. Any person or thing exalted too much in estimation, or deified and honored as the chief good. Whose god is their belly. Philippians 3:19. – verb transitiveTo deify(Webs1828)

CREATORnoun – [Latin] 1. The being or person that creates. Remember thy creator in the days of thy youth. Ecclesiastes 12:1. 2. The thing that creates, produces or causes. (Webs1828)

SUPREMEadjective – [Latin supremus, from supra.] 1. Highest in authority; holding the highest place in government or power. In the United States, the congress is supreme in regulating commerce and in making war and peace. The parliament of Great Britain is supreme in legislation; but the king is supreme in the administration of the government. In the universe, God only is the supreme ruler and judge. His commands are supreme and binding on all his creatures. 2. Highest, greatest or most excellent; as supreme love; supreme glory; supreme degree. 3. It is sometimes used in a bad sense; as supreme folly or baseness, folly or baseness carried to the utmost extent. [A bad use of the word.] (Webs1828)

SOVEREIGNadjective – suv’eran. [We retain this barbarous orthography from the Norman sovereign. The true spelling would be suveran from the Latin supernes, superus.] 1. Supreme in power; possessing supreme dominion; as a sovereign ruler of the universe. 2. Supreme; superior to all others; chief. God is the sovereign good of all who love and obey him. 3. Supremely efficacious; superior to all others; predominant; effectual; as a sovereign remedy. 4. Supreme; pertaining to the first magistrate of a nation; as sovereign authority.noun – suv’eran. 1. A supreme lord or ruler; one who possesses the highest authority without control. Some earthly princes, kings and emperors are sovereigns in their dominions. 2. A supreme magistrate; a king. 3.

MAGISTRATEnoun – [Latin magistratus, from magister, master; magis, major, and ster, Teutonic steora, a director; steoran, to steer; the principal director.] A public civil officer, invested with the executive government or some branch of it. In this sense, a king is the highest or first magistrate as is the President of the United States. But the word is more particularly applied to subordinate officers, as governors, intendants, prefects, mayors, justices of the peace, and the like. The magistrate must have his reverence; the laws their authority. (Webs1828)

The person who possesses the equitable right to property and receives the rents, issues, and profits thereof, the legal estate of which is vested in a trustee. Beneficiary of trust. (Black4)

CESTUl QUE TRUSTHe for whose benefit another person is seised of lands or tenements or is possessed of personal property.

He may be said to be the equitable owner, (and) is entitled therefore, to the rents and profits; may transfer his interest, subject to the provisions of the instrument creating the trust; may defend his title in the name of his trustee; but has no legal title to the estate, as he is merely a tenant at will if he occupies the estate; and may be removed from possession in an action of ejectment by his own trustee. See Trust. (Bouv1892)

This state of existence or being (legal status) in the legal realm is called spiritual death. It is to exist not under the God of Nature (Creation) but under men acting as gods, sovereigns, and supreme rulers, who claim dominion over all names and titles and statuses. They are the legal (artificial) gods and creators of straw men. This metaphoric term of being dead is of course severely mistranslated from the Bible, when in fact the scriptures (Law)  is referring only to men following the legal law over the Law of God (Law and Laws of Nature). This spiritual death of citizenship to the nations and their gods is what must be shed to be “re-born” into Nature’s Realm and Law. There is nothing religious or strange about this act, being merely the shedding of any respect for all persons, places and things (names/nouns) assigned to Nature and thus placed over Reality to cause all men to follow false gods in the artifice (false creation). We seem to have no problem with the idea of coming out of The Matrix, because its a cool science fiction movie. But when it comes to the Real deal, the very action of coming out of this modern legal system of Babylon, well that’s just religious fiction, right?

Oh, how wrong we have been…

Turns out it’s the Natural Law, the foundation. And the metaphor of The Matrix is exactly what the scriptural Law teaches one to avoid, revealing all traps and inducements thereof. For strawmen and taxpayers only have artificial life in the legal realm, the legal matrix of words in coded legalese. And it is no irony whatsoever the the legal definition for the word hell is as a debtor’s prison. For what is a nation but an open-air prison for performance debtors (legal persons)?

And so just what is a “taxpayer?”

Firstly, it is important to recognize that without money and its valuation upon all persons, places and things (names/nouns), there could be no tax. Thus, as with all evils, the love of money is the root of all taxation. Let us be clear that the word love is just another word meaning belief in and respect of. Respect of money (valuation in money) is the root of all evil. Belief in the value of money is the root of all evil. For what law in the United States is not based on money, its use, its users, or its rules — money (valuation) being the one and only product that each nation has a monopoly upon?

And yet what in Nature is Created or Born with a price? What needs money to Exist in Reality? Why nothing, of course. Only fiction and legality survives on money — the lifeblood of evil (artifice). So simple, yet so seemingly impossible to conceive, is a Reality without money (fiction). Strange days indeed…

Ok, so obviously a taxpayer is a registered user (legal person) of another’s property, namely the money and credit of the United States. That’s simple enough. But is that all it takes to also be a taxpayer? Of course not.

One owes no obligational “tax” to anyone but his master, his god, the sovereign creator of his pretended, fictional legal status in society. Pay to play. Of course, the creator (false god) of the status of “citizenship” and of “taxpayer” is certainly the legal state (district/Caesar), and modernly all the nations united under the World Bank, International Social Security Association, and other United Nations entities working to register (tax) every man on earth into a legal persona (strawman) by their “Agenda 2030” goal.

But what does this term “taxpayer” have to do with the term “strawman?”

Let’s find out…

An adversarial commenter (troll) on my blog was good enough to leave a link to a wonderfully deceitful information hit-piece on the use of the term “straw man” in a lame attempt to discredit my life’s work and research. Here’s the link:

Link–> https://www.irs.gov/irb/2005-14_IRB/ar13.html

In short, this laughable piece of sophistry is not ironically the IRS merely using a straw man argument (logical fallacy) to attempt to debunk the very legally recognized notion of just what a strawman actually is as defined in law. Essentially, when government calls any of us a “taxpayer” it is not only evoking but legally personifying a straw man argument, or more specifically an alternative flattering legal (artificial) title attached to the person (strawman) in law (as their own created fiction). In other words, the IRS is declaring us as surety to a dead entity under the doctrine of cestui due use and trust discussed above — as an already registered (taxed) entity (persona/property) of the state containing no substance (no blood) and thus no actual Life. It is styling us as dead (fictionally named and registered) persons that are its property, and doing so because we are the registered agents (actors) for service of process, or “he who is in surety to another.” Legal entities are of course always considered by law as dead, for the legal realm is the realm of dead persons, places, and things (property) of the legal fiction, or hell — as one existing without spiritual Life (without moral Law and choice) and thus outside of Nature (God) and It’s (God’s) Law. And this is of course why so many, including christ, were metaphorically risen from the dead in those moral scriptures, as those who rose above this legal, spiritual death back into Nature and It’s Highest Law, being re-born into their original intent and innocence (unblemished name) without persona (mask). To follow the legal law of men over the Highest Law of God, the Law of Nature, is to live a spiritually dead life in the person (property) of another.

Let us be clear that the Law of God and the law of man are whole recognized concepts in the legal realm, and that one is certainly higher in authority than the other. The word legal, in its Truest sense as man’s “positive law,” literally means not of Nature and in opposition to God, as the undoing of God’s Law. While this is explained in detail in my book, it is important to note that what is positive in law is that which is an addition by man. In other words, positive or legal law is wholly unnatural and always against the “negative” or self-existent and self-evident Law of Nature (God). Its whole purpose and intent is to bend the rules of Nature (of God).

POSITIVE LAWLaw proper, as opposed to moral laws, or to natural orGod-madelaw. An enforceable legal rule which prohibits or requires certain conduct. Often contrasted with moral law. Lawyers speak of positive law to distinguish it from other rules similarly expected to be followed but not conduct-related. For example, many of the provisions of the Laws of Manu deal with morality or hygiene. This made it hard for jurists and legal historians to later sort out what was intended to be enforceable by the state, or which ought to influence the court on disputes over contracts or inter-personal relationships, and the moral or religious rules, which serve as guidance to the citizens but do not attract the attention of law enforcement. (–Lloyd Duhaime Legal Dictionary, online at duhaime.org)

–=–

In other words, the legal law is the law of the dead, of legal, artificial, fictional existence.

But more importantly, it outlaws the Law of Nature, causing men to act not according to the moral law or even to their religious beliefs, but instead dictating the conduct of their persona (status in society) to which men must oblige in surety for the performance debt to their strawman (government property). The benefits of citizenship require us to act in evil (artifice) and respect fictional persons and fake, flattering titles against the foundational Law of Nature (Source). One simply cannot have two gods, which is just code for the fact that man cannot have two conflicting and opposing systems of law.

One does not choose ones God.

One chooses one’s Law, which thus proves the sovereignty of one’s God in all matters Real and legal. And so one may only declare the rights of whatever Law they have chosen, in the name of that Law’s Creator. And God respects no fiction!

The whole point is to cause spiritual death to all men by causing all men to abandon their very own Nature (God) so as to place them under the retention and distraint of the legal law of the district (Caesar).

–=–

“[I.] Cestui que vie remaining beyond Sea for Seven Years together and no Proof of their Lives, Judge in Action to direct a Verdict as though Cestui que vie were DEAD… in every such case the person or persons upon whose life or lives such Estate depended shall be accounted as NATURALLY DEAD, And in every Action brought for the recovery of the said Tenements by the Lessors or Reversioners their Heires or Assignes, the Judges before whom such Action shall be brought shall direct the Jury to give their Verdict as if the person soe remaining beyond the Seas or otherwise absenting himselfe were DEAD

“[IV.] If the supposed dead Man prove to be alive, then the Title is revested. Action for mean Profits with Interest.

—Cestui Que Vie Act 1666, 1666 c. 11 (Regnal. 18_and_19_Cha_2), from the U.K. Legislature Archives

–=–

It is very important to note that one may instantly know one’s status (persona/mask) in legal society by the “term” of one’s proprietary estate (property holdings) there in. To be clear, if property is held for any term of definable time, including that which is called the “life of the man” in persona, then this is property held by a dead, legal person, a strawman (a fictional man of no substance) under a limited contract. And so we must know the difference between the Life of a man and the pretended, spiritually dead, fictional life of a person. The dead (Cestui Que Vie) strawman simply cannot hold property, and may only use and enjoy (but not dispose of) another’s property.

—=—

LIFE:

“26. The state of being in force, or the term for which an instrument has legal operation; as the life of an execution.”

—Definition for ‘life’ from: Webster’s 1828 Dictionary of the English Language (Webs1828)

—=—

Land or property that is held on one’s own right is passed by blood to one’s heirs, and so is not dependent upon any time constraints, for blood is an immortal (inheritable) natural right in law. It’s really that simple. For a person (strawman) has no blood! A person (proprietary granted status) may only have legal (artificial) life (operation) as long as some man (with actual, Natural Life) is there to steer and be surety for that persona (mask/legal status/title). The death of the man represents the figurative death of the being or fictional life-force of the person, which is called an execution of contract (of legal life). This is legal death, not Natural death. Those who “rose from the dead” became spiritual alive under the Law of God. But they did not ever actually die in Real Life, just lifted themselves out of the spiritual death of Caesar’s taxation (registration of personhood) and that legal system of false law and fiction. This is the metaphor of spiritual awakening (going from spiritual death in fictional civil life to spiritual Life), the choice to follow only God’s Law of Nature and no other god (law).

And so finally, obviously, a “taxpayer” is thus a contractual flattering title of any qualified person (property of the district), and so the “taxpayer” dies (is executed) with the person, for no more obligations exist to pay tax upon being registered property of Caesar (the district). With the death of the man comes the end of his or her pledged and contracted surety to act and be responsible for the debts and obligations of the legal person (property of the district). To be clear, all citizen-ships (commercial vessels) are persons (legal statuses/property) of the United States, which is a district (where all persons, places, and things [legally registered names] are held in seizure, distress, distraint) — another word for the realm and rendition of Caesar. Thus to be born again so-to-speak back into Nature (Gods Realm and Law) the user (agent/actor) must render back to Caesar (the district) what is Caesar’s property (status) as the scripture (Natural Law) states.

–=–

“Master, we know that thou art true, and carest for no man: for thou regardest not the person of men, but teachest the way of God in Truth. Is it lawful to give tribute (tax) to Cesar, or not?”

“…And Jesus answering said to them, Render to Cesar the things that are Cesar’s (give back the legal person, relinquish flattering titles and privileges), and to God the things that are God’s. And they marveled at him.”

—Mark 12: 14 and 17, KJV

–=–

And here again we see that Reality, God, Nature and Its Law have no respect for persons, or of course for any legal fiction whatsoever. This is the very foundation of the Bible’s teachings, as the avoidance of all things legal, artificial, fictional, etc. To render or return the property (persona) of the state (Caesar) is to quit claiming to be anything but an Act of God.

No wonder we are conditioned from birth to hate the Bible, to keep it away from public (legal) learning institutions, and to follow the doctrines of false (legalized) religions and governments rather than the Bible!

Rendition is another word for performance, and the legal term execution (death) is of course the end of a contract requiring some performance and abeyance to law — not the death of an actual man, but of the man’s voluntary persona. Citizenship is a performance debt (contract). This legal death (execution of bond and surety to person) back into a spiritual Life and Law can happen at any time, not just at the recorded death certificate indication of the “Natural death” of the actual man. We seek the death of any and all legal existence (artificial life) of the person, not the man. We must render back the registered property of Caesar (the state/district) that is its person (status) and flattering titles so as to stop being its user and registered agents in surety, so that we may be free of the state (district) and its positive (anti-God) law, and so that we may act upon our moral standards restricted by legal law. In other words, we stop being performance actors (citizenships) in the legal matrix of fiction and become again men of God under the Law of God’s Nature.

And so we must understand the metaphor of nailing our selfish ways (the flesh) to the cross (i.e. hang or post public notice). A cross (stauros) is a post, or pike. Thus, we nail paper to a post.

–=–

Remember, this is not religion. It is the story of Law. Every aspect of this is the Source Law, the Law of retaining one’s Source of Existence and priceless place in Nature, and nothing else. Public notice is as old as the law itself, and so is the hanging (nailing) of public notices in the public square to a post (pike).

The word cross as used here, translated and taken from the same word (stauros) translates figuratively as exposure to spiritual death, another term for self-denial, the denial of True Self.

The figurative meaning of the word crucify, from Strong’s G4717 (stauroō) is to crucify the flesh, and to figuratively extinguish (subdue) passion or selfishness.

And finally, this metaphor that Jesus Christ “is come in the flesh” causes the literalist to close down immediately towards any spiritual knowledge that might be garnered by the metaphor. The “flesh,” or Strong’s G4561 – sarx, (σάρξ), is defined as carnal or simply carnal minded. The termto follow after the flesh’ is used of those who are on the search for persons with whom they may gratify their lust.”

A person is he that does not act as his True Self, as one not self-responsible and not acting under the Highest Law, which requires proper choice at all times. Legalism is the opposite of choice, being based purely on causality. Thus legalism is called as spiritual (without choice) death.

And so we are to nail the flesh to the cross and instead follow the Law (Son) of God. It’s just a metaphor, and obviously a damn powerful one, meaning we must become (be re-born into) our True Selves again.

To love thy True Self as thy neighbor is the law. Self Love is, of course, part of the Natural Law, for one cannot love thy neighbor as thy True Self (without legal name and title) unless first one loves thy True Self. Instead, in the artifice of the legal realm, we take the name of and act as legal persons (fictions) under false legal gods in denial of the True Self and Its Nature. In other words, person-hood is denial of one’s own highest self-existence in Nature, which happens to also be very the definition of Jehovah (YHWH), as all that is self-Existent and self-evident. God (Jehovah) is nothing more and nothing less than all that is Truth (Reality) — as a monotheistic conception of the God of Reality (Nature/Source) and Sovereign of the Universe.

But legal truth is not Real, and neither is the truths debated by the “truth movement.” Truth in Its Self is not debatable. It has no alternatives or versions. And if it does, it must therefore be a creation of man, not God, being not self-evident, and therefore must be believed in (loved) as a lie confirmed and ratified as a false but accepted legal truth. It must be therefore enforced and given standing under legal law for it to be accepted as false (confirmed and ratified) truth. A perfect example of this, of course, is the legalized (forced) truth of the value of money, an oxymoron if ever there was one.

Money comes from nothing, and only nothing can come from nothing. To debate over the false propped up corporate valuation of money (mammon) is like debating over the location of a drop of water in the ever-morphing ocean.

It is important to note here that if government calls what happens in Nature without man’s control as an “act of God” in insurance policies, then you better damn well believe that government believes in a Higher Power. Only a fool would be a subject to a false god that acknowledges a Real God of Nature, when the Highest Natural Law of that Real God of Nature admitted to by government states take no false gods! Like it or not, if you are a citizenship of the United States, you are by default a believer in God (Jehovah), and you are also an admitted adulterer against God by following the doctrines (laws) of the state (false god). Apply your reason and logic and you will find this to be Truth, not because it is religion, but because it is the foundation of the Law of both realms. I cannot stress how important this realization is.

ATTAINTverb transitive – [See Attainder.] 1. To taint or corrupt; to extinguish the pure or inheritable blood of a person found guilty of treason or felony, by confession, battle, or verdict, and consequent sentence of death, or by special act of Parliament… 3. To disgrace; to cloud with infamy; to stain. 4. To taint or corrupt. – noun – 1. A stain, spot or taint. [See taint.] 2. Any thing injurious; that which impairs (Webster’s 1828)

TAINTA conviction of felony, or the person so convicted. (Black’s 4rth)

ATTAINDER – English criminal law. Attinctura, the stain or corruption of blood which arises from being condemned for any crime (Bouvier’s 1856)

STRAW – …3. Any thing proverbially worthless. I care not a straw for the play. I will not abate a straw. (–Webster’s 1828)

STRAW MAN – 1. A fictitious person, especially one that is weak or flawed. 2. A tenuous and exaggerated counterargument that an advocate puts forward for the sole purpose of disproving it. — Also termed straw-man argument. 3. A third party used in some transactions as a temporary transferee to allow the principal parties to accomplish something that is otherwise impermissible. 4. A person hired to post a worthless bail bond for the release of an accused. — Also termed stramineus homo. (Black’s 7th)

STEAMINESS HOMO – Latin. A man of straw, one of no substance, put forward as bail or surety. (—Black’s Law Dictionary, 4th Edition.)

The problem is that most people think of citizenship as an honor instead of a condemnation; a charge of felony in attainder. In such a large, open-air prison, it is sometimes hard to remember we are all convict fellons by birth, abandoned to the state. The word condemnation is defined as “the process by which property of a private owner is taken for public use” in Black’s 4th Edition, with the word condemned meaning “worthless.” This describes the birth certification or “delivery” (abandonment) process, and is ho w we become public persons from that false legal birth event and registration. It is the persona (legal mask/status), not the actual man that is feloniously created. For government is only god over its own creation, which is the person and never the man. The man volunteers to become surety for that status in adulthood (legalized adultery against God’s Law), and thus has standing through it, being bound for both its monetary and performance debts. By this voluntary action and false existence in bond and surety, one is considered to be in attainder, for persons (fictions) have no blood to be considered.

As fictional, legal (anti-Nature) persons (citizens/subjects) of a false god (the legal state/national district), all men suffer by their suretyship in this legally pretended attainder, or pretended corruption of blood — when one receives a legal status (person) of citizenship (subjection) to the district of New Columbia (the seat of the United States) through birth certification (nativity). To have standing in blood corruption by law is to destroy the lawful line in heirship of one’s progeny, of one’s children and of one’s parents, for citizenship is a choice to call the fictional state as god (father), though obviously no blood relations actually exists. A user and surety for another’s property is never an heir to that property or land. What exists only legally is always dead, which can be stated as to be made of straw (without value or consideration).

Remember, the son is named by the first (christian) name of Nature, but the heir at law comes from the last or surname of legal genealogical history.

Citizenship, or rather the act of birth registration (taxation) to Caesar’s district, the nation, where the state becomes father of the person we act as surety to (creator of person/status in society), is the act of one relinquishing the blood-rights of himself and his heirs. The boy or girl is still a son in Nature (outside of the legal realm), but in the legal realm of Caesar’s jurisdiction the legal persona (strawman) attached to the child in bond and surety at adulthood (legalized, state-licensed adultery) is no longer an heir by law.

ADULTERYnoun – [Latin adulterium. See Adulterate.] 1. Violation of the marriage bed; a crime, or a civil injury, which introduces, or may introduce, into a family, a spurious offspringIn common usage, adultery means the unfaithfulness of any married person to the marriage bed… 2. In a scriptural sense, all manner of lewdness or unchastity, as in the seventh commandment. 3. In scripture, idolatry, or apostasy from the true God. Jeremiah 3:8. 4. In old laws, the fine and penalty imposed for the offense of adultery. 5. In ecclesiastical affairs, the intrusion of a person into a bishopric, during the life of the bishop. 6. Among ancient naturalists, the grafting of trees was called adultery being considered as an unnatural union. (Webs1828)

ADULTERATEverb transitive – [Latin adultero, from adulter, mixed, or an adulterer; ad and alter, other.] To corrupt, debase, or make impure by an admixture of baser materials; as, to adulterate liquors, or the coin of a country. – verb intransitiveTo commit adultery. – adjectiveTainted with adultery; debased by foreign mixture. (Webs1828)

–=–

The etymology of the word adultery comes from the Old French avoutrie, aoulterie, a noun of condition from avoutre/aoutre, and from the Latin adulterareto corrupt,” meaning, “debauch; falsify, debase.” The term adulterate is used correctly when describing a lie or a corruption of something that was pure. Broadly speaking, an act of Adultery is an act that makes purity into impurity. (–etymonline.com)

The action of attaching and thus registering (taxing) the legal state surname (last name) to the first or pure and God-given “christian” first name is an act of legalized adultery (adult-hood), and is the only way that any man may be so taxed (registered) to Caesar’s district and realm, being re-rendered as a person, no longer recognized as a man (Creation of God). A person is a creation of the state. This admixing of names is called as a blemish or mark upon the soul and True Nature of man in the Bible. It is a corruption of the connection man has to Source, for it carries the anti-Source (fictional) law, the law of persons.

Indeed, all ancient religions in their base foundation concur on this point. Only man’s recreation of false doctrines in incorporation obfuscates the True intent of most religions and the meanings of their words. Self-evident, self-existent Truth is of course universal, requiring no man for its self-evident, self-existent Truth and Nature.

While in modern legal cases and in our dumbed down society, the word adultery is of course used for sexual relations simply because sex sells and occupies the mind. But the root of the word is the admixture of anything to cause the pureness of another to vanish or to become unseen. This is the nature of national citizenship, a figurative (artificial) corruption of blood.

Fortunately, the actions of this arrogant commenter and believer of these deceivers did not somehow magically erase every legal dictionary and history of the word straw man and man of straw in all languages. Nope, it was just troll-poop scatted carelessly by one unwilling to verify facts.

It is one of the small pleasures in life to be able to now completely demolish these types of misinformation pieces printed by the organized criminal revenue collection agency of government. In older days, these farmers of revenue (fishers of men) were agents of the king/treasury, and were known by the title of “escheats,” or “cheaters.” They were the henchmen for the head pirates of the pirate cove. Of course the escheat laws are alive and well in the United States, a modern feudal system lost to the changing language arts.

I wish to walk the reader through this hilariously deceiving bulletin and pick apart the glaringly obvious trickery in its wording, which to anyone without familiarity of legal law, would cause fear and loathing of what some call legally as the “straw man.”

My comments from herein will be in blue below after each false and misleading statement by both the “truth” movement and by the Internal Revenue Agency.

Let’s begin…

–=–

Internal Revenue Bulletin:  2005-14

Frivolous tax returns; use of “straw man” to avoid tax. This ruling emphasizes to taxpayers and to promoters and return preparers that a taxpayer cannot avoid income tax on the erroneous theory that the government has created a separate and distinct entity or “straw man,” in place of the taxpayer and that the taxpayer is not responsible for the tax obligations of the “straw man.” This argument has no merit and is frivolous.

–=–

Silly rabbit, tricks are for attorneys and scribes! The “taxpayer” is a title assigned to the already created strawman (property)! A “taxpayer” is the personification of the fallacious strawman argument. Only persons (strawmen) are “taxpayers” as so defined.

To be clear, the above statement is accurate as a fallacious statement. However, it has no foundation in law. Remember, the taxpayer is a flattering title attached to the strawman (person), not in place of it. A taxpayer has no standing without being attached to a legal person (status).

This Latin term that has been translated into the English (dog-Latin) “strawman” stems from the term stramineus homo, to which Black’s Law 4th Edition defines as “a man of straw, one of no substance, put forward as bail or surety.” To be clear, this refers to the bond of surety that each man stands in when operating in a commercial persona (public citizenship status) of the corporate United States. To be of no substance is to be formal, a fictional personification of the Real; a simulation (representation). All aspects of legal identity, including all names, numbers, marks, signs, signatures, flattering titles, marriages, contracts, and licenses are all connected to this “straw man.” It is merely a word for a legal person, with the understanding that anything designated as “legal” is artificial, or “art” for short. Of course, a man built of straw is the simulation (personification) of an Real man. What is not of nature is of the artifice (i.e. man-made). Thus, the colloquialism that a fictional persona is made of straw actually makes a whole lot of sense at the figurative level, like the scarecrow (man of straw) searching for a brain from the evil Wizard of Oz. And it is very important to understand that all things of government origin are made of straw. Fiction is not reality. The legal language is almost exclusively a figurative language defining fictional persons, places, and things (nouns), the word noun meaning merely name. The words or terms of art of government are property of government. Thus, so is the name of every national citizenship, registered at birth and used by each man (agent) in public, commercial franchise. And so it is true, one would certainly not use the strawman as an excuse to not pay the taxes of the taxpayer, because they are one in the same. Taxpayer is a title, and titles can only be granted or forced upon government property, which is the legal person (strawman). To separate the two as different legal entities is disingenuous at best, outright trickery at the worst in regards to this first paragraph.

With this knowledge of the true intent and meaning of the term straw man, a quite legitimate term of art dating to the Roman law, let us examine the IRS’s first statement above. Notice that this government “agency” is trying to distinguish a difference between what a “taxpayer” is and what a “straw man” is. Funny that the IRS doesn’t define the word “taxpayer” so that we can be certain that a “taxpayer” is not indeed merely another fictional form without substance, a flattering title assigned to the strawman.

And so we must ask, where in Nature, where in Reality can we find a “taxpayer?” Is any man, animal, insect, or plant born a taxpayer? Was I a “taxpayer” when I fell out of my mother’s womb? Is a “taxpayer” a Creation of God, or a creation of government? Is the title of “taxpayer” a legal status or does it course through my veins as some inescapable genetic dis-ease? Just where, oh where do “taxpayers” come from?

Anyone in their right mind knows the answer to these questions. Even the most patriotic of subjects to the sovereign tyranny and piracy of these United States cheaters can’t possibly think that being a “taxpayer” is somehow Natural or has anything to do with the True Nature of Life. After all, there is no money in Reality, in Nature, so how can there be a tax on money in Nature? Ironically, if money grew on trees, it would be all but worthless. But let us consult the foundational maxims (principles ) of law for verification:

MAXIM: An act of God does wrong to no one.

MAXIM: The act of God does no injury; that is, no one is responsible for inevitable accidents.

MAXIM: No one is held to answer for the effects of a superior force, or of an accident, unless his own fault has contributed.

MAXIM: All men know God. [Hebrews 8:11]

MAXIM: That is the highest law which favors religion.

MAXIM: God, and not man, make the heir. [Romans 8:16]

MAXIM: The law which governs corporations is the same as that which governs individuals.

A citizen-ship (commercial vessel) of the United States is called an individual person, whereas a corporation is called an artificial person. Both are, according to the maxims of law, governed by the same law. For a person is never of God (Nature), and so cannot be protected by the Law of Nature’s God. An Act of God is under God’s Natural Law, while all legally created persons and titles are under man’s legally created law. And this is why, while all men are said to be created equal under God, all persons are certainly not created equal. In fact, the whole purpose of persons is artifical inequality — the destruction of God’s Law of Creation, or Law of Nature. This was simply word trickery by the “founding fathers” of the United States, to fool the illiterate masses into believing that the fathers (gods) and their bloodlines (Posterity) were equal in status (persona) to themselves, the creators of the legal realm and artifice.

And so we can see here, at the beginning, that this disinformation piece is designed to separate these two terms into separate or unattached legal entities, dismissing outright the “straw man argument” as it calls it. And indeed, anyone foolish enough to use such an argument would lose, for these are not separate things. A taxpayer is a part of the straw man (person/citizenship), and cannot exist without it. Corporations are “taxpayers” too, for corporations are persons too! “Taxpayer” is merely a fictional title without substance placed upon any man acting in surety and agency to a United States proprietary persona (citizen-ship/legal status) that agrees to contract and conduct commerce therein.

Let us look at the source, the US Code for our definitions:

26 U.S. Code § 7701 – Definitions

(a) When used in this title, where not otherwise distinctly expressed or manifestly incompatible with the intent thereof—

(1) Person – The term “person” shall be construed to mean and include an individual, a trust, estate, partnership, association, company or corporation

(14) Taxpayer – The term “taxpayer” means any person subject to any internal revenue tax.

And of course we have court record to guide us as to the interpretational definitions of that master-class of devilmasters in their devilry:

From: PDFLong v. Rasmussen, 281 F. 236 (1922):

The revenue laws are a code or system in regulation of tax assessment and collection. They relate to taxpayers, and not to nontaxpayers. The latter are without their scope. No procedure is prescribed for nontaxpayers, and no attempt is made to annul any of their rights and remedies in due course of law. With them Congress does not assume to deal, and they are neither of the subject nor of the object of the revenue laws…

[Long v. Rasmussen, 281 F. 236 (1922)]

–=–

You see, we forget that there is also a legal entity called as a “nontaxpayer.”

From: PDFBotta v. Scanlon, 288 F.2d. 504, 508 (1961):

“A reasonable construction of the taxing statutes does not include vesting any tax official with absolute power of assessment against individuals not specified in the statutes as a person liable for the tax without an opportunity for judicial review of this status before the appellation of ‘taxpayer’ is bestowed upon them and their property is seized…”

[Botta v. Scanlon, 288 F.2d. 504, 508 (1961)]

–=–

So the status of taxpayer must be bestowed upon a person (strawman) before that person is a taxpayer, or he is by default considered as a nontaxpayer. So taxpayer is a legal status, not a natural disease.

But how does this fact relate to the person, the strawman?

–=–

“This word ‘person’ and its scope and bearing in the law, involving, as it does, legal fictions and also apparently [IN APPEARANCE ONLY] natural beings, it is difficult to understand; but it is absolutely necessary to grasp, at whatever cost, a true and proper understanding to the word in all the phases of its proper use. A person is here not a physical or individual person, but the STATUS or CONDITION with which he is invested. Not an individual or physical person, but the STATUS, CONDITION or CHARACTER borne (carried) by physical persons.” 

The law of persons is the law of STATUS or CONDITION.

—American Law and Procedure, Vol. 13, page 137, 1910

–=–

And so how is a “taxpayer” then defined both statutorily and as deliberated by the courts?

–=–

“And by statutory definition, ‘taxpayerincludes any person, trust or estate subject to a tax imposed by the revenue act.  …Since the statutory definition of ‘taxpayer’ is exclusive, the federal courts do not have the power to create nonstatutory taxpayers for the purpose of applying the provisions of the Revenue Acts…”

–C.I.R. v. Trustees of L. Inv. Ass’n, 100 F.2d. 18 (1939)

–=–

Specifically, Rowen seeks a declaratory judgment against the United States of America with respect to “whether or not the plaintiff is a taxpayer pursuant to, and/or under 26 U.S.C. § 7701(a)(14).” (See Compl. at 2.) This Court lacks jurisdiction to issue a declaratory judgment “with respect to Federal taxes other than actions brought under section 7428 of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986,” a code section that is not at issue in the instant action. See 28 U.S.C. § 2201; see also Hughes v. United States, 953 F.2d 531, 536-537 (9th Cir. 1991) (affirming dismissal of claim for declaratory relief under §2201 where claim concerned question of tax liability). Accordingly, defendant’s motion to dismiss is hereby GRANTED, and the instant action is hereby DISMISSED.

–Rowen v. U.S., 05-3766MMC. (N.D.Cal. 11/02/2005)

–=–

In other words, a “taxpayer” is a legal person that artificially exists (appears) only in a certain fictional, legal jurisdiction, and only when certain conditions exist. Remember, to be taxed is to be registered as a person of the state/district (Caesar). This is not a man, for no man is bound to any jurisdiction, only the persons of men may legally appear. Men Live in blood and Spirit, they don’t appear. To show up in court, the person (legal admixed name) must be found to be in that court, and jurisdiction over that legal persona must be proven, lest the case be dismissed for lack of jurisdiction (see above). The question above is not whether a taxpayer exists, but whether that title can be attached to the person (strawman) of the defendant in surety to it.

–=–

“And by statutory definition the term “taxpayer” includes any persontrust or estate subject to a tax imposed by the revenue act. …Since the statutory definition of taxpayer is exclusive, the federal [and state] courts do not have the power to create nonstatutory taxpayers for the purpose of applying the provisions of the Revenue Acts…”

–C.I.R. v. Trustees of L. Inv. Ass’n, 100 F.2d.18 (1939)

–=–

It is clear that a “taxpayer” is thus a creation of the state, not of Nature. A taxpayer is any person (legal status) subject to tax. Thus it is clear that a taxpayer is no man, but can indeed only be a straw man (fictional entity/persona) that some man is in surety to.

–=–

To be considered as a “taxpayer” is to be in surety first for a legal persona (status), and then also for the flattering legal title of taxpayer. The taxpayer is required to pay tax, and the man in surety will surely follow, for the surety insures payment of the persona and title he uses.

When a trust or estate can be given the title of “taxpayer” then we know that a taxpayer is not a Real man. A person is also not a man, but the legal status of a man bound in surety to another. It’s just a word. Form without substance. This must be understood here so that we may certainly state that a “taxpayer” is indeed merely a fictionally created straw man of (belonging to) government.

Go through the following definitions very slowly and meticulously, connecting all the dots:

BONDSMAN One who by a SEALED INSTRUMENT engages that: if another person (the principal) fails to do a specified thing he will pay a certain sum of money; a surety(–W.C. Anderson’s Dictionary of Law, 1889)

BONDSMANnoun – [bond and man.] A SLAVE. 1. A SURETY; one who is BOUND, or who gives security, for another. (–Webster’s 1828)

SECURITY – (1)An instrument which guarantees the certainty of some specific thing, as, payment or PERFORMANCE. (2) A SURETY. Written after the name of one who signs a promissory note, means ” surety.” See Surety. (3) Individual safety. See Personal Security… evidences of indebtedness. (–W.C. Anderson’s Dictionary of Law, 1889)

SURETY – Contracts. A person who binds himself for the payment of a sum of money or for the performance of something else, for another, who is already bound for the same. A surety differs from a guarantor, and the latter (guarantor) cannot be sued until after a suit against the principal. 2. The surety differs from bail in this, that the latter (bail) actually has, or is by law presumed to have, the custody of his principal, while the former (surety) has no control over him. The bail may surrender his principal in discharge of his obligation; the surety cannot be discharged by such surrender. 3. In Pennsylvania it has been decided that the creditor is bound to sue the principal when requested by the surety, and the debt is due; and that when proper notice is given by the surety that unless the principal be sued, he will consider himself discharged, he will be so considered, unless the principal be sued. But in general a creditor may resort to the surety for the payment of his debt in the first place, without applying to the principal. (See) Contribution; Contracts; Suretyship. (–Bouvier’s 1856)

SURETYSHIP – The contract of suretyship is that whereby one obligates himself to pay the debt of another in consideration of creditor indulgence, or other benefit given to his principal, the principal remaining bound therefor. It differs from a guaranty is this: that the consideration of the latter is a benefit flowing to the guarantor. Suretyship is an accessory promise by which a person binds himself for another already bound, and agrees with the creditor to satisfy the obligation, if the debtor does not. A contract of suretyship is a contract whereby one person engages to be answerable for the debt, default, or miscarriage of another. For the distinctions between “suretyship” and “guaranty,” see GUARANTY. (–Black’s Law 1st)

STRAWMAN – 1. Draft or outline copy ready for suggestions and comments. 2. Third party used as a cover in illegal or shady deals. 3. Nominee director. 4. A weak or flawed person with no standing. Also called man of straw. (–Black’s Law 2nd)

STRAWMAN – 1. A weak or imaginary opposition set up only to be easily confuted. 2. A person set up to serve as a cover for a usually questionable transaction. (–Webster’s Ninth New Collegiate Dictionary)

DUMMYnoun – One who holds legal title for another; a straw man. (–Black’s Law 4th Edition)

DUMMYadjective –Sham; make-believe; pretended; imitation. As respects basis for predicating liability on parent corporation for acts of subsidiary, “agency,” “adjunct,” “branch,” “instrumentality,” “dummy,” “buffer,” and “toolall mean very much the same thing. (–Black’s Law 4th Edition)

AGENCYA relation, created either by express or implied contract or by law, whereby one party (called the principal or constituent) delegates the transaction of some lawful business or the authority to do certain acts for him or in relation to his rights or property, with more or less discretionary power, to another person (called the agent, attorney, proxy, or delegate) who undertakes to manage the affair and render him an account thereof. The contract of agency may be defined to be a contract by which one of the contracting parties confides the management of some affair, to be transacted on his account, to the other party, who undertakes to do the business and render an account of it. A contract by which one person, with greater or less discretionary power, undertakes to represent another in certain business relations. A relation between two or more persons, by which one party, usually called the agent or attorney, is authorized to do certain acts for, or in relation to (lie rights or property) of the other, who is denominated the principal, constituent, or employer. (–Black’s Law 2nd Edition)

–=–

In case you missed that, a surety is the same as a slave, as involuntary subjection; a performance debtor in an open-air prison (district).

Obviously, this opening statement by the IRS was one of obfuscation and very well-known inaccuracy, not in reference to law but to a vast range of misconceptions brought forth by the mythology of the generally misinformed patriot/truth/liberty/sovereignty movements. In other words, the IRS is not refuting the fact or legal existence of the “straw man,” for without it there would be no entity to charge any tax to. Instead, the IRS has address the strawman argument created by fallacious defendants against the IRS and has chosen merely to address that existential, external strawman argument, without explaining the actual facts about what the word strawman stands in reference to in law, as the actual persona that the title of “Taxpayer” is attached to. One (the taxpayer) cannot exist and have standing without the other (the person) being precedent.

PURPOSE

The Service is aware that some taxpayers are attempting to reduce their federal tax liability by taking the incorrect position that their incomes are not subject to tax based on a theory that the government has created a separate and distinct entity, or “straw man,” in place of the taxpayer and that the taxpayer is not responsible for the tax obligations of the “straw man.” Some promoters market a package, kit, or other materials that claim to show taxpayers how they can avoid paying income taxes based on these and other meritless arguments.

This revenue ruling emphasizes to taxpayers and to promoters and return preparers that a taxpayer cannot avoid income tax on the erroneous theory that the government has created a “straw man.” This argument has no merit and is frivolous.

The Service is committed to IDENTIFYING taxpayers who attempt to avoid their tax obligations by taking frivolous positions, including frivolous positions based on meritless “straw man” or similar arguments. The Service will take vigorous enforcement action against these taxpayers and against promoters and return preparers who assist taxpayers in taking these frivolous positions. Frivolous returns and other similar documents submitted to the Service are processed through its Frivolous Return Program. As part of this program, the Service confirms whether taxpayers who take frivolous positions have filed all of their required tax returns, computes the correct amount of tax and interest due, and determines whether civil and criminal penalties should apply. The Service also determines whether civil or criminal penalties should apply to return preparers, promoters, and others who assist taxpayers in taking frivolous positions, and recommends whether a court injunction should be sought to halt these activities. Other information about frivolous tax positions is available on the Service website at IRS (website).

This, again, is a truth told based on the logical fallacy of the foolish theroist, but not because the Truth is told to counteract or correct the “truther” that submitted the theory — that the taxpayer is not responsible for the tax obligations of the strawman. Inversely though, it is correct to say that the strawman is responsible for the tax obligations of the taxpayer. This simple reversal of terms is again a way for the IRS to trick us into confusion based on the fallacious, ill-conceived “theories” of the patriot/truth movement and its false gurus. The surety is responsible for the strawman, and the strawman is responsible for the taxpayer, in that order. Again, no effort to educate or correct these fallacies is present herein, for if we were made to understand the way this all works, no one in their right (informed) mind would fall for the trap of being a taxpayer. The IRS would have to close its doors, with no persons dumb enough left to place its false, flattering legal titles upon. Thus it would have no precedent to tax (extort) from any person.

Note that each year, around 50% of all US citizens do not pay federal income taxes. By this accounting, 50% of us should be in jail, since most people believe that all persons are taxpayer by default! Unless that is, that most of that 50% just don’t qualify under the flattering title of “taxpayers.”

Notice that only the word “taxpayer” is used above, as what is against the taxpayer or as the process of “identifying taxpayers.” This is because a “taxpayer” is a specific title created by the IRS under US CODE, and of course it makes the rules over what its own creation (property) must do. At no time does it mention any man or person that is not a taxpayer, because it only has jurisdiction over fools who allow themselves to become and be flatteringly titled as “taxpayers.” In other words, an identified, titled “taxpayer” cannot avoid taxes, because this is the purpose and law of over a title of “taxpayer.” But first the “taxpayer” must be identified, which obviously means that while all taxpayers are persons, not all persons are taxpayers. No man in their right mind would first identify himself as a person that is a “taxpayer” and then argue that he is not a “taxpayer.” This is where gurus and false teachers come into play, steering the truth and patriot movement wrong for many decades with what the courts label as “paper terrorism” and fallacious theories at outrageous prices.

Again we can see above that the IRS is merely arguing against what it knows is a fallacious theory, a strawman argument that is easily disputed, but not offering any corrective facts to prove that argument, of which these gurus have convinced their marks that the taxpayer and the strawman are not the same thing, when in fact the straw man is the “taxpayer” (person liable to tax) when so qualified as such, not the man. For while all persons are men, not all men are attached to persons.

ISSUE

Whether the government’s use of different forms of a taxpayer’s name (e.g., different capitalization formats, spellings) creates a “straw man,” which is a separate and distinct legal entity from the taxpayer to allow the taxpayer to avoid federal tax obligations?

Here we see again the obfuscating idea being put forward that the “taxpayer” is separate from the straw man (person) or citizenship status again. But this is not any argument I’ve made, and certainly the above definitions show that the “taxpayer” is “any person subject to any internal revenue tax.” And so yes, if this is the claim being made, then certainly one would loose this case, having only partial knowledge and understanding of the legal law and tax code regarding personhood (citizenship) in the subjection of bond and surety. In other words, this whitewashing document is designed for the very idiot that posted it to my website, so that he may cease in doing any due diligence or further research to defeat this strawman argument and feel more comfortable with his own voluntary servitude in persona and “taxpayer” status. In other words, this IRS document is a lie designed to appear as truth to the truth movement, and is put forward as official “truth” therein. Unfortunately, this type of false positive truth are what the truth movement is founded upon — the truth of lies.

To be clear, there is no requirement or set way to write names or other titles. Style manuals are not law, merely suggestions and standards. More to the point, if one writes one’s name without ALL-CAPS or even misspells their own name, as soon as that man (agent in surety to the name) answers in legal appearance for that name, the error is considered remedied and corrected. For the intent of the agent is clear as soon as he appears in that name. This ALL-CAPS argument is perhaps the most worthless of the many patriot mythologies surrounding the strawman system.

DISCUSSION OF THE “STRAW MAN” CLAIM

The “straw man” claim is premised on the erroneous theory that most government documents do not actually refer to individuals.

Note: Remember that a person (status) is defined as “an individual.” All citizenships are individuals (persons) as opposed to corporations (artificial persons) made up of many individuals. Only a fool would claim that a strawman is not the same as a person (individual). Again, this is just obfuscating language designed to throw us off the scent. No claim I have made states that I believe a straw man is not an individual person, nor that the “taxpayer” is not defined as an individual liable for tax under this IRS Code. That would be downright stupid — which unfortunately is the basis of the realm of false guru-based nonsense and advertising in the truth movement and radio circuit.

Continuing…

–=–

Users of the “straw man” theory falsely claim that only documents using an individual’s name with “standard” capitalizationi.e., lower-case with only the beginning letters of each name capitalized, are legitimate. These individuals erroneously argue that the use of the individual’s name in all upper-case letters, which is common in some government documents, refers to a separate legal entity, called a “straw man.”

To be clear, government can only communicate with persons, with straw men. In other words, every letter that comes to a citizenship of the United States from government is addressed to the person (sttrawman), which was sent to the man acting in agency and surety for that person at the registered federal mailing address on file. Again, government cannot commune with the Living, only the dead. As registered agent for service of process, your home address is also your interstate commercial address.

To even mention this notion that nothing but capital letters are being used or that the so-called “ALL-CAPS” name has anything to do with whether the straw man exists legally (artificially) is again purposefully misleading and fallacious. And the error is again not corrected by legal facts, as I have provided here. Style manuals again are not law, any more than proper manners and morals are law, and no law states that any name must be capitalized or even spelled correctly for legal identity of the person (strawman) as a “taxpayer” to be established. Those who are again foolish enough to use this argument have been tricked by false gurus that parrot other false gurus and shock-jock radio hosts. This argument by the IRS does not apply to myself nor to anyone else that understands what a straw man is. Again, this is just misleading rhetoric designed to confuse the subject and cause tax (commerce) to flow. ALL-CAPS are used for ease of reference to determine corporations from individuals and fictions from Reality, etc. But both are persons (strawmen) as we have defined and as defined by the courts, and so the point is mute. There is no law that applies here, only stylization suggestions for organization and ease of use, the same as any other corporation out there has.

Moving on…

These individuals also erroneously argue that, as a result of the creation of a “straw man,” they are not liable for the debts, including the tax debts, of their “straw man,” that taxing the “straw man” is illegal because the “straw man” is a debt instrument based upon the labor of a real person and is, therefore, a form of slavery, or that no tax is owed by the real individual because it can be satisfied, or offset, by money in a “Treasury Direct Account” held in the name of the “straw man.”

Firstly, an individual is a person (strawman), so this argument is again mute. Of course the tax is charged not to the strawman, but to the “taxpayer,” which again is a title put upon the strawman (person). Obviously an agent in surety to the person (strawman) that is identified as a “taxpayer” is liable to pay the tax. You cannot argue the tax, only whether the title of “taxpayer” applies to the person (strawman). The precedent must exist to lay the tax. Once the title is linked, one cannot claim one’s person (status) to not be a “nontaxpayer.” We again see the IRS trying its best to keep the separation going, as if the strawman doesn’t exist in the first place. Yet it says here that “these individuals” are doing the arguing, which means that they are already considered to be persons (strawmen) doing the arguing in surety (strawman form). And so the IRS is claiming that the “strawman” and thus the surety for that person is not liable for the debts of the “taxpayer.” That’s ridiculous, unless that strawman (person) can show the IRS to be of its other created title/status, which used to be called a “non taxpayer.” Remember, the person (strawman) is property of government. We have no choice in the matter.

We read above that surety is a synonym for slavery, and we see above that the IRS does not dismiss this statement, but only uses it to further the ridiculousness of the argument. A bit of truth mixed with lies and obfuscations is always more effective.

There is no such thing as a “Real” person, for man creates nothing Real, and nothing legal is ever Reality. The term “real person” is an oxymoron, meaning a real artifice, a real lie, or a real fiction. What is Real is of God, never of the government. This again is self-evident. But it helps promote the strawman argument well, pretending that the strawman and the title of “taxpayer” and the person are somehow separate entities. Men do labor in the name of a person. Persons do no labor, anymore than a pair of leather work gloves lays bricks without a force moving them.

As to the rest of it, this is a big one. Many people have been tricked into the permanent delusion of seeking rewards, reparations, payoffs, and non-existent pots of gold at the end of non-existent rainbows, believing that for some reason there is some magical account that they can access such as the aforementioned “Treasury Direct Account,” as if that account was specifically set up with the design to remedy by some reward the “truther” that finds it. The gurus have created their own treasure hunt built on these mystery accounts that, if only we could prove their existence, we can somehow rape them of all their money. After all, these are trust accounts for the persons we dwell in, and therefor they must be created for us to find and take, right? Does that make sense to you, considering the person (strawman/legal status) is government property and not your own, and that your actions in surety to that persona are strictly voluntary? What possible remedy does one who is a voluntary slave seek, since no wrong can come to a volunteer? A man benefiting from fraud, after all, cannot suddenly claim it to be fraud while still continuing to act in and benefit from the fraud! It seems the whole truth/patriot/freedom/liberty movement has gone from seeking True Freedom and Liberty under God to wanting money for damages instead, seeking some magic account that doesn’t exist for that purpose. They have simply forgotten or chose to ignore God and It’s Law and chosen mammon (valuation) in It’s stead.

And yes, before I realized the scam, I too was like a jackass lead by a carrot (of gold) to seek this never to be found straw man account. But eventually, one realizes that these otherwise good-intentioned people were displaced from seeking Natural Freedom and Liberty in Nature and under Its Law only to be sidetracked into seeking money in mammon under the law of persons and begin to love their state and status within this master and servant game of volunteerism. It is a shameful turn that many or most have succumbed to, some even accepting money for the stolen lands of their family posterity (bloodline inheritance). And this monetary reward bait-trap keeps us in the system instead of rejecting it outright as fraud, leaving us stuck in the legal law matrix and its commercially coded sub-structure instead of causing us to leave this obvious simulacrum of Babylon. It causes us to remain in legal persona until we find the hidden treasure that can never be found, for it is nothingness, and from nothing comes nothing. And again, just as Huxley predicted, we have been made to love our servitude simply through this endless pursuit of mammon.

As for taxing the strawman as a “taxpayer,” they are only taxing their own property (legal entity/vessel) that we choose voluntarily to use in commerce. A user and surety of another’s property will always smart for it and pay for that use. This idea of labor being a man’s property comes from the one part of the tax code that they do everything to avoid, which is Title 83.

All individuals are subject to the provisions of the Internal Revenue Code. Section 1 imposes a tax on all taxable income. Section 61 provides that gross income includes all income from whatever source derived, including compensation for services. Adjustments to income, deductions, and credits must be claimed in accordance with the provisions of the Internal Revenue Code, the accompanying Treasury regulations, and other applicable federal law. Section 6011 provides that any person liable for any tax imposed by the Internal Revenue Code shall make a return when required by Treasury regulations, and that returns must be filed in accordance with Treasury regulations and IRS forms. Section 6012 identifies the persons who are required to file income tax returns. Section 6151 requires that taxpayers pay their tax when the return is due. Section 6311 requires payment of taxes by commercially acceptable means as prescribed by Treasury regulations.

There is no authority under the Internal Revenue Code or any other applicable law that supports the claim that taxpayers may avoid their federal tax obligations based on “straw man” arguments, as described in this revenue ruling, or on similar arguments. The formatting of a taxpayer’s name in all upper-case letters on government documents or elsewhere has no significance whatsoever for federal tax purposes. Courts have rejected as frivolous “straw man” arguments. United States v. Furman, 168 F.Supp.2d 609 (E.D. La. 2001) (rejecting criminal defendant’s contention that he was not properly identified in federal government documents that misspelled his name or used his properly spelled name in all capital letters). In addition, courts repeatedly have rejected similar arguments based on frivolous claims that purport to provide a basis for avoiding taxes, and have penalized taxpayers who have made these arguments.  Seee.g.Lovell v. United States, 755 F.2d 517, 519 (7th Cir. 1984) (“[A]ll individuals, natural or unnatural, must pay federal income tax on their wages . . ..”); United States v. Romero, 640 F.2d 1014, 1017 (9th Cir. 1981) (“[I]n our system of government, one is free to speak out in open opposition to the provisions of the tax laws, but such opposition does not relieve a citizen of his obligation to pay taxes.”).

All of these demands and statements are very specific. The term “wages,” for instance, is a very limited term that is defined in the tax code. And yes, income tax certainly applies to “wages.” To argue otherwise is foolish. But the IRS must prove what is a “wage” and what is not, just as it must prover identity of persona before it may prove “taxpayer” status. Again, it must establish precedent.

It is also certainly true that courts will joyfully reject such claims presented at bar, for they are erroneously presented in the first place, backed nowhere by the law. A person cannot deny personhood, only a man can. And a person’s actions in and under law decides whether that person is a taxpayer, whether natural (individual) or unnatural (corporation). Remember, the creator controls. This maxim applies to persons (legal identity and status) and to the words (terms of art) in legal language used to create and govern them. You cannot change or alter the definitions of government, but you can learn them and use them properly.

Note too that the IRS refers to these fallacious notions as being a way for “avoiding” taxation. Avoidance is not illegal in any way, and is the very definition of being a “nontaxpayer.” Once what is avoidable becomes unavoidable due to one’s actions and contracts in commerce, only then is avoidance illegal. In other words, once the “taxpayer” status is attached to the strawman (person) it cannot any longer be avoided. Avoidance is what happens before these obligations are made. Thus the IRS and the courts will always deny claims made for avoidance of taxation after the intent and liability is established (confirmed by actions). The only thing one can do is to not become a “taxpayer” by not using the person (strawman) in any way that would creates such a title (status) as “taxpayer.”

To be clear, if a person (strawman) is called into court amor being a taxpayer, and the agent for service of process appear in court as that person so declared to be a “taxpayer,” then the agent has already all but lost his case. All such denials and objections to the title of “taxpayer” should have been addressed through the U.S. Mail system before any appearance is made. To appear as a taxpayer and argue that you are not a taxpayer is certainly a sign of ignorance, illiteracy of legal law, and foolishness.

CIVIL AND CRIMINAL PENALTIES

The Service will challenge the claims of individuals who attempt to avoid or evade their federal tax liability by refusing to file returns and pay tax, and will disallow deductions or other claimed tax benefits, including the exclusion of income, based on frivolous “straw man” arguments. In addition to liability for the tax due plus statutory interest, individuals who claim tax benefits on their returns, or fail to file returns, based on these and other frivolous arguments face substantial civil and criminal penalties. Potentially applicable civil penalties include: (1) the section 6651 additions to tax for failure to file a return, failure to pay the tax owed, and fraudulent failure to file a return; (2) the section 6662 accuracy-related penalty, which is equal to 20 percent of the amount of taxes the taxpayer should have paid; (3) the section 6663 penalty for civil fraud, which is equal to 75 percent of the amount of taxes the taxpayer should have paid; (4) a $500 penalty under section 6702 for filing a frivolous return; and (5) a penalty of up to $25,000 under section 6673 if the taxpayer makes frivolous arguments in the United States Tax Court.

Taxpayers relying on these theories also may face criminal prosecution for: (1) attempting to evade or defeat tax under section 7201, for which there is a significant fine and imprisonment for up to 5 years; (2) willful failure to file a return under section 7203, for which there is a significant fine and imprisonment for up to one year; or (3) making false statements on a return, statement, or other document under section 7206, for which there is a significant fine and imprisonment for up to 3 years.

Persons, including return preparers, who promote these theories and those who assist taxpayers in claiming tax benefits based on these frivolous arguments may face penalties and also may be enjoined by courts pursuant to sections 7407 and 7408. Potential penalties include: (1) a $250 penalty under section 6694 for each return or claim for refund prepared by an income tax return preparer who knew or should have known that the taxpayer’s argument was frivolous (or $1,000 for each return or claim for refund if the return preparer’s actions were willful, intentional or reckless); (2) a penalty under section 6700 for promoting abusive tax shelters; (3) a $1,000 penalty under section 6701 for aiding and abetting the understatement of tax; and (4) criminal prosecution under section 7206, for which there is a significant fine and imprisonment for up to 3 years for assisting or advising about the preparation of a false return, statement or other document under the internal revenue laws.

HOLDING

The use of different forms of a taxpayer’s name (different spellings, capitalization, etc.) does not CREATE a “straw man” that allows taxpayers to avoid their federal tax obligations. Claims based on “straw man” arguments or on similar arguments, to avoid federal tax obligations, are frivolous and have no merit.

DRAFTING INFORMATION

The author of this ruling is the Office of Associate Chief Counsel (Procedure and Administration), Administrative Provisions and Judicial Practice Division. For further information regarding this ruling, contact that office at (202) 622-7950 (not a toll-free call).

–END OF DOCUMENT–

This notion that the misspelling or different spelling or ALL-CAPS spelling “CREATES” a straw man is again not corrected by the IRS, but merely left to stand as a strawman argument to be easily refuted and defeated. It is easy to call bullshit without providing facts to support the call. And in the IRS’s case, it is necessary to keep the public dumbed down as to the backbone of their criminal racket.

The strawman is created by the birth certificate as a legal entity (person/status).

The taxpayer is a title placed upon the already existent strawman (person).

Notice that all penalties listed have to do with an already identified by precedent “taxpayer” arguing against that title and status. None of this applies to persons that cannot be identified as “taxpayers.”

In the end, this whole whitewashing treatment of the subject of the straw man has been just one ridiculously and painfully obvious strawman argument, the taking of another’s logical fallacy and arguing against the known fallacy without providing facts or proves that would correct the fallacy, but instead defeating the already known-to-be-incorrect assumptions of the positions taken by fools.

I sincerely hope that this treatment of the strawman topic has clarified its methodology. Again, this is but a precursor, a summary if you will of my book “Strawman: The Real Story Of Your Artificial Person”, which is free to download at (StrawmanStory.info), and where you will find the above information sourced and explained in triplicate.

And this knowledge guide you and keep you free…

A Brief History Of The Flat Earth Society


Of all the areas of the liberal arts that need to have the Trivium method applied, this is certainly the one.

I have been fascinated by the willingness of acceptance towards unprovable “facts” used by this group of modern “flat-earther’s.” And so I knew that if I searched a bit I would come to discover the origin of such unscientific thought processes toward the fallaciously standing conclusions put forward therein. And so I’d like to share what I found. This is not meant to be offensive or spark a debate, merely to show the roots of this prima facie (on the face/appearance only) type of belief system and its spread as a subversive culture.

In a nutshell, the origins of the Flat Earth Society come from the Zetetic Society, philosophy, and method. From its modern website we can read:

The ‘Universal Zetetic Society‘ (UZS) was the precursor to the Flat Earth Society. It was founded shortly after the death of Samuel Rowbotham (aka Parallax) by Rowbotham’s adherents. The UZS was active well into the early part of the 20th century, publishing many issues of a magazine titled, The Earth Not a Globe Review?. In 1971, the UZS was renamed The Flat Earth Society when Samuel Shenton became its leader.

Samuel Birley Rowbotham (AKA Parallax) (1816 – 1884), was an English inventor and writer who wrote Zetetic Astronomy: Earth Not a Globe, based on his decade-long scientific studies of the earth, published a 16-page pamphlet (1849), which he later expanded into a 430 page book (1881) expounding his views. According to Rowbotham’s scientific method, which he called Zetetic Astronomy, the earth is a flat disk centered at the North Pole? and bounded along its southern edge by a wall of ice, with the sun, moon, planets, and stars only a few thousand miles above the surface of the earth.

Rowbotham and his followers gained notoriety by engaging in raucous public debates with leading scientists of the day. One such clash, involving the prominent naturalist Alfred Russel Wallace, led to several lawsuits for fraud and libel.

After Rowbotham’s death, his thousands of followers established the Universal Zetetic Society, published a magazine entitled The Earth Not a Globe Review? and remained active well into the early part of the 20th century.

‘Zeteticism‘ is a system of scientific inquiry. The word is derived from the Greek verb zeteo, which means “to search or examine; to proceed only by inquiry.

Zeteticism differs from the usual scientific method in that using zeteticism one bases his conclusions on experimentation and observation rather than on an initial theory that is to be proved or disproved. A zetetic forms the question then immediately sets to work making observations and performing experiments to answer that question, rather than speculating on what the answer might be then testing that out.

For example, in questioning the shape of the Earth the zetetic does not make a hypothesis suggesting that the Earth is round or flat and then proceed testing that hypothesis; he skips that step and devises an experiment that will determine the shape of the Earth, and bases his conclusion on the result of that experiment. Many feel this is a more reasonable method than the normal scientific method because it  removes any preconceived notions and biases the formation of a hypothesis might cause, and leaves the conclusion up entirely to what is observed. Samuel Rowbotham was the first to use the term in reference to Flat Earth? research. He devised the Bedford Level Experiment to determine whether the surface of water is convex, reasoning that if the water is not convex the earth cannot be a sphere. This is how he came to the conclusion that the Earth is flat. The method has been a cornerstone of Flat Earth Theory? ever since.

Here we should stop to define a couple of terms, which not ironically have much to do with each other. The Parallax view of convection. Let us use a dictionary from those times:

CONVEX – adjective – [Latin] Rising or swelling on the exterior surface into a spherical or round form; gibbous; opposed to concave, which expresses a round form of the interior surface; as a convex mirror or lens. – noun – A convex body; as heavens convex. (–Webster’s 1828 Dictionary of the English Language)

CONVEXITY – noun – [Latin] The exterior surface of a convex body; a gibbous or globular form; roundness(–Webster’s 1828 Dictionary of the English Language)

PARALLAX – noun – [Gr. to vary, to decline or wander; beyond, and to change.] In astronomy, the change of place in a heavenly body in consequence of being viewed from different points. Diurnal parallax the difference between the place of a celestial body, as seen from the surface, and from the center of the earth, at the same instant. Annual parallax the change of place in a heavenly body, in consequence of being viewed at opposite extremities of the earth’s orbit. (–Webster’s 1828 Dictionary of the English Language)

–=–

This notion of Zetetic methodology of science is not distinct from the blind leading the blind. Information without postulate or goal. While Mr. “Parallax” Rowbotham may have been sincere and attempting to be legitimized in his time, it appears that even up to today his followers are merely bad-mannered, browbeating Zetetics hell bent on “engaging in raucous public debates with leading scientists of the day,” and for that matter anyone that seeks rational debate. A simple perusal through the comments section of any “Flat Earth” video or website is evidence of the fallacious ad hominem and other personal, non-scientific attacks towards anyone that disagrees with their strange breed of “science.”

One begins to see similar patterns of this type of harassment in certain elements of the “truth movement” and its infamous shock jocks, and within groups like We Are Change and the various 9/11 truth movements, of which I was once very much involved. This is certainly not to say that no science backs their (and my) claims about 9/11. It is to say that the approach towards dissemination of this information, which is prima facie evidence at best, is to gather in places and have arguments similar to those of the flat-earther’s, usually ending in statements like “if you can’t see what is happening in this video you must be an idiot.” And I believe this is why such movements are so transient and ineffective, for the confidence of absolute observational correctness becomes an overwhelming force that allows no further debate and ignores all evidence to the contrary.

Now remember, I am referring to myself here, as one of the guys that used to get out in the streets and in parks and other public places in people’s faces without solicitation to spread “9/11 truth.” And honestly, I hate the thought that I might have been so belligerent and unreasonably argumentative that I turned people away from actually examining the evidence I had just by my attitudinal prejudices. And so as one with experience in this gang-up and insult methodology, I know this is a mental trap we must all grow from if we are to have any effect.

One of the most outspoken and somehow respected “flat-earther’s” is Eric Dubay.

In the following video debunking most tenets of this movement, we find that many of Dubay’s sources for flat-earth cosmology is from just where we would expect, the Zetetic Society. I recommend this entire video:

Note too in this video that “Freemasons formed Zetetic Societies to engage in anti-Christian and scientific debate.” In other words, counter-culture.

We can also find much of this sort of fallacious reasoning in Theosophical writings and movements. From the Theosophical.org website we can read some of these esoteric writings that seem to support such Zetetic methodologies and beliefs:

–=–

Earth Mind: Starting where we are in the world of appearances, we see the myriad of forms, from our time and place of seeing, from our point of view and perspective. We are the subject registering objects.

This is my world, my life, my things, my roles. Fear and desire. The mask of persona. The consumer. Habits. The everyday world. The world of natural living. This is the flatworld; the sun revolves around us. This is the data storage mind. Calculating mind. Taking care of business. This is the earth world. The outer world. The subject-object awareness dominates

Esoteric Initiations: In addition to meditation, ancient myths, and near-death research, we have a similar process described in the psychological initiations of consciousness familiar to esoteric groups. There are notable similarities between the process of natural life and death and the ending of an old value system and a rebirth into a new perspective.

Transpersonal psychologists love to look at this process of death and rebirth in consciousness. One of (the) first of these was the Romanian scholar Mircea Eliade, who observed: “Initiatory death provides the clean state on which will be written the successive revelations whose end is the formation of a new man…This new life is conceived as the true human existence, for it is open to the values of spirit” (Eliade, xiii-xiv). The process of initiatory death wipes the slate clean so that a new chapter in the book of life may begin fresh, open, and unprejudiced by old cultural and social values and viewsInitiation breaks down old patterns of behavior. It allows people to begin again and to see with new perception. The new values become the principal values of the new life.

At each initiatory death and rebirth we begin with a new view from a higher elevation. We see more, know more, and can relate to whole systems more readily. Seeing and accepting life as a process of birth/death instead of regarding life as the opposite of death is an initiation into reality

Logic without grammar — this is the epitome of the Flat-Earth Society. Perspective-based information without True knowledge.

Let us be clear… I have maintained throughout my research and writings that I simply don’t know the shape of the earth, nor do I fool myself that this type of knowledge is for such mortals as myself. I remain neutral. This is, if anything, a sort of divine wisdom whose vantage point is only with God, if you will. I don’t know. I will continue to answer I don’t know. But so far, the evidence lands almost exclusively in the “globular” earth model. But I still do not know.

The typical flat-earther, however, has already decided, claiming God-like knowledge as divine wisdom without proofs and without actually realizing this cultish disposition. Such confidence is reminiscent to the historical accounts of the church’s resolve in justifying the witch-burnings. Fact built upon fallacious reasoning… or no reasoning or questioning at all! Belief based purely on physical observation and perspective is obviously a very dangerous thing, and is how the masses are controlled in many areas of thought. It is not dissimilar to ignoring the camouflage of many species that allows them to hide in plain site by subterfuge so as to catch its prey unsuspecting.

But what happens when one’s perspective is changed?

What happens to the mountainous ant hill when the ant climbs a tree and observes it from directly above as seemingly flat?

In fairness, we must acknowledge that the world and those who run it is full of controlled oppositional forces. It was Vladimir Lennon who is quoted as suggesting that “the best way to control the opposition is to lead it ourselves.” And so as we find Eric Dubay outing almost all other prominent flat-earth researchers but himself as shills and controlled oppositions, we may also find otherwise legitimate inquiries and scientific researchers seeking the Truth of the matter. And so I leave this short essay with the following link that you may read at your leisure, which discusses the history of the Flat Earth Society, its leaders, and the fact that they may have been controlled opposition to counter any good information from being taken seriously.

Again, I remind the reader that I remain neutral on the subject, so no need to bully me or attempt to belittle my character in the comments below. I simply ask that you consider the origins of this movement, a movement without really anywhere to move, and that you beware of any belief without supportive data. Use your grammar, logic, and rhetoric, in that order only.

Where does your grammar come from? Is it to teach or to deceive? Is it of the Nature of the Universe or is it sourced in the adverse?

ADVERSARIA – (From Latin adversa, things remarked or ready at hand.) Rough memoranda, common-place books. (Black4)

ADVERSARIA – noun – [Latin from adversus. See Adverse.] Among the ancients, a book of accounts, so named from the placing of debt and credit in opposition to each other. A commonplace book. (Webs1828)

ADVERSE adjective – [Latin adversus, opposite; of ad and versus, turned; from verto, to turn. See Advert. This word was formerly accented, by some authors, on the last syllable; but the accent is now settled on the first.] 1. Opposite; opposing; acting in a contrary direction; conflicting; counteracting; as, adverse winds; an adverse party. 2. Figuratively, opposing desire; contrary to the wishes, or to supposed good; hence, unfortunate; calamitous; afflictive; pernicious, unprosperous; as, adverse fate or circumstances. – verb transitive – advers’. To oppose. [Not used.] (Webs1828)

SATANnoun – [Hebrew. an adversary.] The grand adversary of man; the devil or prince of darkness; the chief of the fallen angels. (Webs1828)

–=–

Are the books (grammar) on your shelf and in your digital browser a gift of the light of knowledge or of the adverse of darkness as form without substance?

The world, be it flat or round, square or artificial, is abound in false dialectic (logic), in adversarial forces intent on counter-cultural confusion. Perhaps it is time to abandon such impossible pursuits and focus on the ever-deteriorating and legally (licensed) anarchistic society we find ourselves in today? No matter what side of this debate you fall on, perhaps it is time to come back to earth and treat it as home, whatever its unknown shape, and to start treating each other as we wish others to treat us. Oh, what a wonderful world (round or flat) that would be.

An Open Letter To “Flat Earthers”


I am not here today in an attempt to debate on the subject of this post, and I’m not here to declare what “shape” the earth is. The most honest answer is invariable always that one which best describes one’s best disposition, which is that I simply don’t know. I cannot know. I have no vantage point to utter such a confident declaration and build a faith-based counter-cultural movement around it. I would never claim to know without seeing for myself, which I cannot.

This is, by the way, a great example of where the Trivium method (grammar, logic, rhetoric) works wonders. The trick with applying the Trivium method is to know when it is applicable and when it is not. The Truth, when told, needs not the Trivium to show it to be Truth. Only the lie, no matter how well-intentioned or ill-conceived it stands, can be defeated by the Trivium. For more on this method of distinction, this bullshit meter, visit:

Link–> http://www.triviumeducation.com

On that note, the group mentality shared between those styling themselves as “flat-earthers” has become wholeheartedly the opposite of honesty, which is to blindly state that the earth must be and therefore is indeed flat, while providing absolutely non-corelative “facts” to prove it. Though the word “flat” is wholly undefined and without any actual primary evidence whatsoever, this model of the flat earth has the same amount of primary photographs as the apparent globe model has, which is absolutely zero. Yet somehow this lack of somehow real photographic evidence (an oxymoron on its surface) only applies to what “flat-earthers” now call insultingly as “round-earthers,” a reference to how foolish everyone must be for not believing in the undefined and totally unproven in every way “flat” planet model. And so immediately and without trying, we utterly crush one of the mainstay arguments for a flat earth, which is that there is no Real picture or image of it — the same reason used to anecdotally disprove a round earth. But we must recognize and respect the maxims of law and science here, which is to say that one cannot prove a negative. In other words, a lack of evidence is not somehow positive evidence of a fact. Within the artistry and either purposeful or accidental irrationality of perfecting the use of logical fallacy, we find here that it is seemingly perfectly logical to utilize a self-damning argument (lack of photo evidence) against that which one wishes to disprove.

But the arrogant demands for real photos of the planet continue from these flat-earthers, who believe that the lack of (negative) photo evidence is positively proof that they are hiding flatness from us all.

When logic comes before or even absent of any grammar, you end up sounding like this guy:

This “flat-earther” will be our study case today.

Now, I don’t wish to talk down to or disparage this man, only to show that the fallaciously ill-conceived and unfounded confidence in what he is stating as “proof” is without anything to back it up. It is not rational, it is not scientific, and it is not reasonable. It is, however, a perfectly logical set of fallacious rhetoric. And so the intention of utilizing this video is purely to show evidence of what happens when logical fallacy becomes so out of control that it approaches the ridiculous, surpassing even religion in its vulgarity to what is self-evident Truth, simply because one’s foundation is unproven or incorrectly perceived. This arrogance of positively, rightously declared ignorance permeates throughout such stylized groups, but more so from “flat-earthers” than any other I’ve ever seen. We must ultimately call it for what it is, a strictly faith-based religious cult.

I will go point by point here, taking each topic mentioned by this self-proclaimed “flat-earther,” whatever that means, and let reason and obvious evidential proofs take their course.

Firstly, and before we even press play on the video, please take notice of the design on his shirt. This is a common model used to show an almost impenetrable, apparently highly guarded ice-wall that surrounds the entirety of the border of the flat earth. Treaties between nations are in place and the continent of Antarctica is thus off limits without international governmental permissions and permits. And this is therefore said to be a secretive conspiracy to hide the flat earth, simply because no one may thus walk to the edge of the earth and… do whatever it is one would do if one were to reach the end of the earth. Take a picture maybe? Throw a stone into space?

On the other side, the side of research and reason, we simply find this notion of an ice wall around the earth comes from the efforts of early global mappers to map a round globe onto a flat piece of paper, which is way harder than one might think. Trying to draw what is round (i.e. 3-dimensional model) onto what is a flat (i.e. 2-dimensional model) in actual simulation (representation) and scale is very difficult, of course, and involves much we need not get into here for this discussion.

Today, we have the fortunate example of computer world and background modeling to show us how such maps might appear as we warp them from round (3D) to flat (2D), though below it is opposite, going from flat (2D) to round (3D). The point is, one can easily see how Antactica would be skewed to appear to stretch around the globe if it were to be drawn on a flat map, when looking at the world from above Antarctica. In other words, what appears to be a wall of ice surrounding the oceans on all sides of the 2D map resets its original form when the map is caused to be shown in its 3D model again. The outside of the 2D map would be folded together and the continent of Antarctica would be clear. The same would be true if it was the North Pole that was the bottom of the model, if the photo was taken from the south pole. And so Antarctica is stretched out to appear as a circle around the entire map, just as illustrated below in this computer model, giving it the appearance of exactly what is pictured on our “flat-earther’s” t-shirt above.

And so this “displacement effect” upon a 2D rendered map is what a “flat-earther” tries to show as “proof” that Antarctica is a ring around our other continents on a flat surface. Again, no photo evidence, just the drawings of old mappers and mariners.

One theory is that because the flag of the “United Nations” has no pictorial image of Antarctica upon its armorial, that therefore the logical conclusion is that it’s laurels must be in actually a wall of ice spreading all around the flat earth from the south pole. But again the simplest answer is usually the correct one… For we must remember or learn the foundational fact that ANTARCTICA IS A CONTINENT and NOT A NATION. There is no independent nation in or around the geographical area known as Antarctica, which is the very reason for the afore mentioned international treaties upon it. It is wholly owned by no nation, and so it is not a party to nor is it represented in the United Nations as a nation. It is not, after all, the “United Continents.” Likewise, if all of the nations in North America dropped out of the United Nations, the flag would likely not include the continent of North America upon it. So would this lack of inclusion of a known continent somehow prove that the world is triangular, and indeed not round or flat?

A simple glance at the United Nations website gives a pretty good reason why we wouldn’t see Antarctica as well… because the very middle of the flag is a vantage point from the North Pole down!

The Design

The original UN logo was created by a team of designers during the United Nations Conference on International Organization in 1945.  The design team was led by Oliver Lincoln Lundquist.

The United Nations Emblem

The design is “a map of the world representing an azimuthal equidistant projection centred on the North Pole, inscribed in a wreath consisting of crossed conventionalized branches of the olive tree, in gold on a field of smoke-blue with all water areas in white. The projection of the map extends to 60 degrees south latitude, and includes five concentric circles” (original description of the emblem).

–=–

Gee… I hope I didn’t just create a new flat-earth meme, that because the olive laurels on the UN flag are gold, they must be keeping Antarctica all for them-selves so as to hoard all the gold! Or perhaps this is where all those pesky, greedy leprechauns go with all of their damned elusive pot’s o’ gold, riding the rainbow train to Antarctic happiness…

UN FLAG1

The point here is that even without applying science, mathematics, or any other “proofs” to the equation, we can immediately see that just reasoning, mixed with a tiny bit of due diligence, defeats this entire ridiculous theory of “the ice-wall.” Antarctica is simply not a nation. How simple and funny is that?

But I digress, for I do not know if there is an ice-wall around us. I have no way of knowing and have never been there, if it actually exists. I am only here to disprove what is said to be proofs, and have a bit of sarcastic fun along the way. More to the point though, this should scare you, that people may be lead to believe in such easily defeated nonsense. For all of us non-flat-earthers are essentially heretics worthy of death by little round balls. Ok, that’s an exaggeration, of course. But we are being metaphorically stoned by these styled “flat-earthers” convinced not only that everything is a lie, but that a different set of lies are a convincing model of everything.

As for this freezing ice shelved continent, though several nations have claimed as sovereign certain overlapping sections (sectors) of the continent to conduct scientific research, it is simply not a new or unique nation in and of itself. It has no representation therefore in the United Nations and so one would not expect to see it upon any United Nations map or flag. This is quite reasonable. You can read more about the international Antarctic treaties here:

Link–> https://www.state.gov/t/avc/trty/193967.htm

Oh, and by the way, in case you “flat-earthers” decide to shift your focus to the north pole, let me nip that idea right in the butt. It sits over water, not any legally or internationally recognized land. So it really isn’t by law able to be considered a nation either. I hope I don’t need to remind you here that ice is also water as well, and that even a continent-sized ice cube still cannot technically be a nation either, since water is considered as a moveable in law. Look at the flag above. The North pole is portrayed as water and not continental land.

One down, so many to go…

Let’s go back to the first example video of our rather confident “flat-earther” and his fallacious rhetoric and continue with our analysis.

In the beginning monologue our “flat-earther” states that the biggest argument against “flat-earthers” such as himself is of course the fact that they have no actual evidence to back up their claims, though our flat-earth champion seems here not to apply himself to that generalization, and seeks in this video to rebuke the fact of no facts exist. He then states that this claim of lack of evidence comes from that dismissive majority of “heliocentric enthusiasts” as a title for what I assume is another way of disparaging anyone that believes the earth is round and revolves around the sun.

To be clear, I am not writing this critique as a helio-centrist or under any other religious and/or scientific titles or belief systems. Remember, I clearly stated that “I don’t know” in the beginning of this post, and that my only goal is to disprove what is labeled as “100% proof” of a flat earth, as if there is a such thing as 90% or 17.8% proof? Maybe their proof system is the same as alcohol is based on? I don’t know. One can hold many theories yet hold zero proofs. That’s religion. But the most important facet about this clandestine name-calling is the link made by this “flat-earther” that anyone who does not believe in a flat-earth model must therefore logically believe in a heliocentric model. Why? This is unclear, since the shape of the earth itself does not prove or disprove in any way that the earth revolves around the sun or is stationary. So what about geocentrism? Can I not be a believer in geocentrism and also believe in the general roundness of the planets and of Earth? Again, this is but a fallacious, false connection created to make the flat-earth model more appealing and factual by association or lack thereof, when in fact it makes no difference at all to the shape of the earth.

He goes on to state that the distance of the sun from the earth is a heliocentric model-based factoid, when in fact shape has nothing to do with any heliocentric theory or any other. But how could the shape of the earth be a correlation to the distance of the earth to the sun? Answer: It doesn’t. Whether these measurements are accurate or not, at best, fall under the knowledge category of I DON’T KNOW EXACTLY AND NEVER WILL. And yes, this is the best scientific answer possible! This is just more false-association and fallacious logic without reasonable grammar.

And here we see the immediate development of an us against them, or us against everyone else in the universe mentality, even as his rhetoric takes upon itself an almost religious quality of belief over reason, as if he is one of a new persecuted society of true believers.

The name of this video, by the way, is “The Sun Is The Smoking Gun.”

His first specific argument is that all drawings of the universe are CGI computer models.

Now, I hate to even feel the need to state this, but what the hell else is there? What else could there even be? This statement is one of those beg the question fallacies that implies that there could or should be some other kind of image of the universe showing all the planets to scale that is kept somehow secret from us. Perhaps the aliens faxed it over last century? You know, when faxes were universally cool? But where could such a “real” image come from otherwise? Wouldn’t one need to float way outside of Pluto’s course to possibly obtain such an image of the entire solar system? And would the sun not just appear from that vantage point as merely another bright star in the far distance?

Yes, all the pictures you see of the sun and planets are art or computer images. Duh! And no, they are not nor can they be to scale, because the scale would require 10’s or 100’s of miles of paper to print out. Not to mention, that while portrayed at such a scale the planets would be unseen by the naked eye, making the map pointless for study. So yes, they are drawn in and over-exagurated. Surprise! If you think that is a conspiracy to hide flat earth, I don’t even know what to say to that. How can this possibly be related to anything about flat earth? There is absolutely no correlation of the shape of the earth to the distance of each planet to the sun. This is just another completely unrelated topic used as false proof, as compared to the question: Is the earth flat?

100% dud there…

Now, standing as what has to be the most ridiculous disassociation from known science, physics, and just downright common sense and perception, our “flat-earther” shows a “proof” of something that I honestly have never heard before. At around the 2:20 mark in the video above, he actually points to the suns reflection on the clouds (atmosphere) and calls it a “hot spot.” He is actually looking at the reflection of the sun from the camera’s vantage point and thinking that the bright reflection of the sun’s light is causing a “hot spot” to form over the earth. Now at first I thought for sure this had to be a joke. But he just kept on as if absolutely this was a reasonable conclusion.

He then shows footage of the sun shining in different directions through the clouds, claiming that this means that if you follow the rays of the sun, it is really much closer to earth than is officially stated. Again, this photographic evidence is not proof in any way that the earth is flat, just more rhetoric without proper grammar and logic applied. If he’s right though, the sun would appear to be hovering in this picture to be about 2 or 3 miles above the clouds according to the way the sun rays line up. So it’s really close! Therefore… the earth is flat. LOL!

I’m sorry, but it is very hard to control my sarcasm here, so bear with me.

What he didn’t bother to check with reference to these “crepuscular rays,” which have everything to do with the point of ones linear perspective, are something called anti-crepuscular rays or anti solar rays, which actually do the opposite of these crepuscular rays he shows in his video example. Anti solar rays appear (as an illusion) to converge away from the sun instead of at the sun. Both are illusions, just like a rainbow is an optical illusion (unless you are a leprechaun). And so here again, just a tad bit of due diligence would show our “flat-earthed” theorist that his theories are quite self-debunkable.

New “flat-earther” meme: if the anti solar rays of the sun don’t point to the sun, the sun must therefore not exist. Oh, wait, that’s why they are called ANTI solar. The point is that these rays, called crepuscular rays, are also not coming directly from the sun, but from the atmospheric reproduction of them. And so no, they are not a measurement of where the sun is in the sky.

Logic without grammar…

By all means, simply type in these terms into an image finder and marvel at what comes up — a beautiful and well known phenomenon that we have all witnessed personally at some point in our lives. But to say something is well known does not make it any less of a natural or optical illusion.

And yet amazingly, arrogantly, confident and absolutely sure of himself, he continues in his false proofs as if a prophet of the sun deity…

His next point is the Earth’s supposed distance from the sun, called colloquially as the “Goldilocks” position in reference to the fairy tale of Goldilocks and the Three Bears, where the earth is just right. But of course, it is the atmosphere of the earth that is just right, not the position of it. If we loose our atmosphere by any significant degree for any reason, little Goldilocks will suddenly find herself with a really bad sunburn and won’t be feeling just right. In fact, her little face will either melt off or become a popsicle.

The correct answer to this distance measurement?

I do not know. Nor shall I. Nor am I meant to.

In answer to his irrational question then I would say no, I would not expect anything in space to be ablaze that is outside of the ring of Earth’s positional field because I would also not know its atmospheric capabilities. This mixture of scientific referential and bold-faced sci-fi conjecture is enough to cause a rational man to bleed out of his anus in angst and incurable frustration. Maybe that’s the point. The joke? However, again I would answer that I don’t know, man, because I have no idea what space is or what it’s made of, what the sun is or what it’s made of, nor what the distance is between these things. And neither do you. I cannot reasonably have unwarranted confidence in one unknown only to use that unknown to prove or disprove another unknown entity. But, according to “flat-earthers,” since apparently we cannot believe anything NASA says, why use NASA information while at the same time trying to prove NASA is a fraud?

Seriously, if we get any less rational, we are going to end up disproving the existence of fire by splashing water on it!

For the next one, I’ll just quote this dude to save time and energy…

“So why is it that here, on earth, you see- you look up and you see the sun, and the sun, always has a blue background, but when you see these official images from the trusted scientific community and the good folks over at NASA who are raking in that $52 million dollars a day, you see the sun and it’s always a black background. Why does that– why does that happen, why does it look that way. Ask– Ask these questions to yourself.”

–=–

It is perhaps this last statement that answers the rest. Why would one ask a question to one’s self? Knowing that one’s self does not already know the answer, is it really reasonable to proceed then to asking one’s self for the answer?

Essentially, he is asking, why is the sky blue?

But what about at night, when we look out in space and see 1,000’s of stars that are supposedly suns? Why isn’t space blue at night time? When the sun is behind us, instead of shining directly in our atmosphere, then we see the same darkness he is questioning. There is (apparently) no atmosphere (like ours) around the sun, and therefore there are no rays bouncing through our sky giving off a blue tint. We would need to be looking at the sun from behind an atmosphere to see the color of the atmosphere. Yet he questions why it is black behind, not in front of the sun. This is another laugh out loud moment, being but more priceless logical fallacy.

But by all means, ask your self to make sure your self knows the answer.

Again, this is simply a matter of perspective. The sky is no more blue than a rainbow is the appearance of its colors. Our perception of what we label as the color “blue” is merely the available light allowed (filtered) through our own limited capacity to see.

This children-oriented science museum in Louisiana explains it thusly:

“…One of the main factors in determining a sunset’s color is the Earth’s atmosphere. The atmosphere is made up mostly of gases as well as some other molecules and particles thrown in for good measure. The most common gasses in our atmosphere are nitrogen (78%) and oxygen (21%). The remaining single percent is made up of water vapor and lots of tiny solid particles like dust, soot & ash, pollen, and salt from the oceans. There are also trace gasses like argon present. Also, depending on where you live, you’ll have to factor in that volcanoes can put large amounts of dust particles high into the atmosphere and pollution can add different gases or dust and soot to the air as well.

The atmosphere of the Earth can be thought of like a filter on a camera lens.

Light from a light bulb or the Sun may look white, but it is actually a combination of many colors. When you see light filtered through a prism you’ll see this white light split up into its separate colors, i.e. wavelengths. White light is the colors of the spectrum blended into each other. And a rainbow that you see in the sky is actually a natural prism effect as rain drops split those different colors up.  The colors have different wavelengths, frequencies, and energies. Violet has the shortest wavelength. Red has the longest wavelength. The shorter the wavelength means the more powerful the frequency.”

–=–

In other words, when this guy says to “trust your own eyes,” every scientist in the world reacts in painful spasm, since our own eyes are naturally filtered from seeing most of the spectrum of available light. Our eyes are like a filter (camera lens) for the brain, which is a beautiful gift of Nature, letting us see only what we need to see for our environment and survival in Nature.

Let’s just put it this way… if the atmosphere wasn’t there to protect your sorry ass, you wouldn’t be asking why the sky (atmosphere) is blue in the first place, now would you. Why not wonder at its glory than question its visual and functional reality?

But let us pause here yet again to ask that ever so important and repetitive question: what in the hell does the blue sky have to do with the earth being flat?

Essentially, he answers his own question by stating the fact that in space, when looking at pictures of the sun, the background black, while from earth and within its atmosphere, it is blue.

And that leads us to the logical fallacy of the day: because NASA rakes in 52 million a day it cannot be trusted. NASA draws and creates CGI pictures of what it cannot otherwise take pictures of and fills in colors to see things in its published pictures (and always discloses to us it is doing so), therefore it again cannot be trusted.

By this logic, we cannot trust graphic engineers or structural architects unless their drawings match exactly to what the final constructed building will look like, including the color scheme picked out by the eccentric billionaires that will corporately dwell therein.

Again, let me remind the reader, I am not defending anyone or anything, including NASA. Please don’t shoot the messenger. I am only disposing what is labeled as 100% proof by someone who calls, identifies, and publicly displays himself culturally as a “flat-earther.”

Moving on…

Once again, at about 8:40 into this horrifyingly laughable video, I will need to quote our “flat-earther” just to show the idiocracy of what is being stated with no sign of apology or awareness of any of the sciences.

“If you actually just trust your senses — if you, you can pop on YouTube, or you can, you know, take a look at this video and find additional videos, you’re gonna find that there are time-lapses that people have taken of the sun moving across the sky. And while the sun’s moving across the sky, you’ll notice that the Earth seems to be stationary, like, the Earth isn’t moving; the buildings that you see aren’t moving. You see the sun drifting across the sky. So wha- what does that tell you? We’re told that the Earth is rotating around the sun, yet we feel no movement, we don’t see any motion, we don’t feel any motion out here, but we feel stillness when we go outside. And, in the time-lapse you see the sun moving across the sky, just like that (hand motion). So what does that tell you? I believe that tells you to trust your senses. And what does your senses tell you? Your senses tell you that the sun is the thing that is moving and that the Earth is flat and stationary. But let’s go on…”

–=–

Firstly, I love that he says trust your senses, and in the same sentence tells us to watch YouTube. In other words, trust the CGI. Trust digital technology. Just don’t trust NASA or government or any of them there round-earthers and their usage of YouTube.

So here he actually points to the fact that when we set up a STATIONARY camera pointed at the sky, the Earth for some reason does not seem to move. The buildings stay where they are. LOL! Only the sun seems to move across the sky.

Do I need to even comment on this?

If you don’t understand, then go buy a mountable camera and perhaps jump off a cliff. Afterwords, if you survive, you can marvel at how everything but the tip of your hat seems to move, but not what the camera is mounted upon. The mountains, the buildings, the sky… everything just seems to be flying by in utter chaos! Be careful though, because that large mass of land coming straight for the camera is actually the round earth about to smack the hell out of you.

As to the motion fallacy, I can merely direct the reader of this, and any flat-earther” for that matter, to go and drive your car at 90 miles an hour down the wrong side of the highway. Once you reach that speed, you’ll notice that if you drop a quarter, it falls straight down as if you are standing still. You will also notice that you cannot actually feel the motion of traveling at 90 miles an hour, since you are not accelerating or decelerating any more. But eventually you’ll cause a crash with an oncoming car or truck, and you will definitely feel that motion. May sting a little, but at least you’ll be able to rationalize how it is we don’t feel the turn or motion of the Earth.

Now again, I don’t claim to know anything about this. Are we turning? I don’t know. Are we spinning and darting through space with reckless abandon in a spiral with the sun and other planets like crumbs in the garbage disposal of space? I don’t know.

However, I will point out again that the notion that the earth is stationary or that it is spinning or that it is rocketing through space… has nothing to do with the Earth being flat or round. So please stop equating unreliable concepts together.

Seriously, this has to be a practical joke, right?

Trust your senses. But let me tell you what your senses tell you, because I’m a “flat-earther” and everyone else is round and heliocentric.

My favorite part of this video, starting at about the 10 minutes mark or so, is the ill-conceived story and experiment he tells about calling up his friends in England and in Australia to show that sunlight is in all three places at once, and that this is somehow impossible on a globe model earth. Now, he could have just gone to the time zone websites and pulled up this information himself, to see that when he called his friends internationally they would tell him exactly what would be expected at that moment. But instead, without checking any source or even having the conscious awareness to verify his claim, he arrogantly presents a completely ridiculous “story” of how the fact that his friends can see the sun rising and setting at the same time it is directly over his head in the western state of Washington proves the earth is flat.

So I pulled up what I believe any rational man would pull up, the time zone charts based on the round earth that everyone is familiar with and for which our entire time and travel infrastructure is based on. Now I have data to compare to an anecdotal phone call that presents absolutely no proof of anything except that the sun can be seen in three places at once. To our flat-earthed, this duel phone call is proof-positive that the earth must be flat. I have no idea what this is so, except again to point out the lack of grammar that his dialectic (logic) is built upon, leaving his rhetoric completely in the realm of the absurd.

Here is the data set I found after 5 minutes of reasonable research. I looked at the sunset charts for England and Australia today (August 23, 2017) which can be found and inquired of here:

Link–> (https://www.timeanddate.com/sun/@2175819)

–=–

Australia (Biloela Queensland): Time was 6:17 am and the sun was at 78 degrees — Video shows 6:06 am, and sun is barely rising (not quite yet beginning to rise – to quote: “just coming up”) in that video, just as one would expect from the data set provided.

6:18 am  (78°) 5:43 pm  (282°)

–=–

England (West Yorkshire):  Video shows sun already quote: “over the hill” referring to a sun already set and out of site, and that it was apparently a quote: “nice sunset.” The website shows an equal dataset, predicting the sunset to happen at 8:17 pm, with a 290 degree angle, just as one would expect immediately after sunset at 9:06 pm (time of video).

5:59 am  (69°) 8:17 pm  (290°)

–=–

Note that these degree points are referencing the upward direction as well as either east or west. In other words, the sun that is being seen at sunset in Queensland Australia is also being seen as a sunset in West Yorkshire England, just was recorded on the globe model.

Next we simply plug in where our “flat-earther” happens to be standing while conducting this hilariously this botched experiment while making it sound logically as absolute proof. He is in Tacoma Washington, at what just happens to be the exact middle off the day, or what is officially called the “solar noon.” And we see that the degree of angle shows the sun to be in the middle of the sky, at 180 degrees (the middle point between sunset and sunrise).

1:12 pm (53.9°), heading (180°)

Link–> https://www.timeanddate.com/sun/usa/tacoma

–=–

And so, this means that what England sees as a sunset and Australia sees as a sunrise is actually the middle of the day in the Western most United States (Pacific Time Zone). And this just happens to be exactly what the globe model predicts would happen. And yet this little “story” of our “flat-earther” calling other internationally unorganized “flat-earthers”  states this to be absolute 100% proof (the name of the video) that the earth is flat.

To be clear, when we look at the “globe” model map below, we can see that in order for this to have happened, the sun would be over the State of Washington, to which the eastern shore of Australia would see this solar noon as the eastern rising morning sun, while In Western Europe, specifically in England, we would also see the sun setting in the west. This can only happen on this round earth, for on flat earth maps we see Australia being east of both America and England. So how could Australia be seeing the solar noon in America by looking east at the same time England is looking west?

We know the answer, of course. Do I actually have to say it? That the map connects to the other side of the map…

And so even more hilarious to consider while listening to this “flat-earther” preach, this little experiment actually disproves the validity of any flat earth model, since if the sun was hovering over North America, it would be seen as a westward sunrise in both Europe and Australia, and nothing from the East. In other words, the sun would rise and set only in the west in Australia according to this flat-earth model.

Globe map

So what does this mean?

Between chuckles and outright bursts of uncontrollable laughter, it means that this self-proclaimed “flat-earther” just proved the exact readings one finds on sites such that NASA would run. He literally proved that the “globe” model does exactly what it says it does, and that a flat earth model does not jive with the suns placement in the skies!

But don’t be fooled by my research here… for this is actually, somehow, some way, proof that the Earth is flat, but satirically so, and only in a round sort of way.

Now at this point we must begin to speculate that this whole flat earth thing is just a very widely played joke, or that it is indeed merely just another counter-culture mind game with a goal towards total domination through controlled chaos of a completely irrational idiocracy… kinda like the movie version. Even the majority of comments left in this video ask if it is a joke, while most of the remainder of comments are insults hurled at “round-earthers” and “heliocentric enthusiasts” that offer no substance or proofs, very much like a religious argument should be.

But can we really compare the movie with today’s reality?

.

–=–

Perhaps the greatest and most appealing fallacies is the fact that when we look at the horizon, we see with our own eyes that it is flat. And so we again apply logic without grammar, and conclude that our perception must be correct. But please allow me to attempt to explain why it is that we do not see curvature on the horizons of our Earth, based on the globe model…

But how does one tell in words what would need to be experienced to comprehend? We can only try here to explain the only rational outcome of what it would be like to stand on a perfectly round (3-dimentional) ball or globe.

To start, we must realize that everywhere we look at the horizon, say if no mountains were in our way, that is forward, backward, right, left, and every point in between, would necessarily be at an equal vantage point wherever we may look. In other words, the horizon would be flat in appearance, and the curvature would not be perceptible, since every point on the horizon is at the same height from our perspective.

Remember, this is all about perspective. You’ll need to use your imagination for this one, keeping it bound to reason.

So let us pretend that while we are standing on a perfectly round globe model of anything, and therefore are standing automatically at its highest point, that we are then told to look for curvature on the horizon between the right and left points on opposite sides from one another, and then for the curvature from in back of us to the very front of our position.

Where would the perspective of such curvature begin and end, if everywhere you turned upon a perfect globe and therefore every horizontal point of the surface spread equally out in front of you? Answer: the horizon would appear flat (equidistant) because we are viewing the globe not in 3d but only two-dimensionally (length/hight).

If it started at the front and went left or right in its curvature, then there would be nothing left behind us when we turned around, since the curvature would not allow for that or any other equal point to exist, and this would actually, ironically, and mathematically prove it not to be a perfect globe. It is in fact the 2D perception of flatness that proves the actual 3D roundness. In other words, the horizon would need to curve back up in order to reach the level horizontal point behind us and on each side of us, and for that matter at every point we can see. If we saw a curve in front of us, curving left and right in a downward (fisheye) style, it would have curved in front of us to the point where nothing would be left to see when we turn around. But the point behind us is at the same horizontal plane as that which is in front, left, and right of us. So where could this supposed curve of the globe possibly manifest itself when the plane or horizon of it is equal on all sides (perspectives) from our two-dimensional vantage point? It cannot. It’s like a reverse optical illusion. And we are missing a whole dimension of perspective.

And so again we see here that the very answers to the questions posed by these self-proclaimed “flat-earthers” are actually the same answers as to why the earth is not flat. To apply one or two-dimensional logic to a three-dimensional equation will always cause confusion… and false religion.

I’m not sure what to conclude from this ridiculous collection of 100% proof of flat Earth, except that it is so unbelievable that someone could actually believe it. If anything, this “flat-earther” just proved that quite the opposite to be true. In any case, this whole counter-cultural meme and identity of false-persecution just needs to stop. To all my friends who have presented me with similar, easily refutable “evidence” of a flat Earth, I appeal to you to focus on what is Real and verifiable.

This is not dissimilar to the Mandela Effect hoax, to which I did a similar discourse on. The key to remember is that nothing in Nature, nothing in Reality is changing, only the artifice, entertainments, cartoons, timelines, and fictional histories of men. These are not Reality. And neither is the flat Earth model.

Link–> https://realitybloger.wordpress.com/2016/06/08/a-strong-delusion-the-mandela-effect/

However, I end this by stating again that I don’t know. I have not proven anything here today, only debunked what others are labeling as “truth” and “proof.”

If you would like me to go over other flat earth mysteries, false positive proofs, and fallacies, please let me know. I’ll tackle them one by one in the comments below. And if I don’t know, I will say I don’t know.

To be clear, for those who hurl insults instead of reasonable comments…

I do not love NASA. I do not side with any side, because Truth only has one side, and one either knows or does not know Truth. I do not love government. I despise doctors, scientists, and any other flattering titles bestowed by this syndicalist education, diplomacy, and licensing system. I am not any label, so don’t call me one. I don’t believe in the flat earth or the round earth or the square earth or the triangular earth or the trapezoidal earth. I don’t believe in the heliocentric or the geocentric or the egocentric position of the earth. And I will give no comment space for those who declare that by default I must be any or all of the above. Only rational statements of reason are asked for here. I don’t want to be dared to research anything and I won’t be amazed by what you present. I will only research it primarily and let you know what I find, with the caveat that I do not know.

In closing, it occurs to me that this would make a great script for a video. Please feel free to do so, without need of any permissions. I’d certainly love to hear this dude’s response!

Now, please focus on what is self-evident, self-existent, as that which needs no proof to establish its already clear existence. Smell the flowers and cherish what beauty and Realness is left here for your senses to enjoy, before this scientific community genetically modifies us and our environment into the internet of all things.

Strawman (Volume I) Now Shipping!


Greetings programs…

After fighting what can only be described as an extremely uphill battle, being such an inexperienced little fish in a pond of some very large and filthy corporate sharks, I am happy to announce that “STRAWMAN: The Real Story Of Your Artificial Person – Volume 1” is being printed and bound as I write this, and will officially begin shipping on Monday of next week (August 7th, 2017). I can’t possibly make any more rookie mistakes or trip over any more stumbling blocks! No more changes or corrections — of which there were a seemingly endless supply. What is written will not be undone — a scary thought — and thanks to all of your support and trust, I was able to get printed a total of 2,000 copies.

How ironic that this day falls but one day before my own strawman debtor’s birth event day (August 8th) — the day the informed upon Clint Richardson was legally berthed into this open-air debtor’s prison for so-called “natural persons.” And like every victim of this human capital management system of the district, I was at every turn tricked into voluntarily using (confirming) that false persona in agency as a legal vessel in commerce.

I am assured that Strawman will begin shipping free to all who have donated towards my efforts and requested a free copy as a gift, beginning this Monday. I hope that the receipt of this gift has been worth the wait, and I thank you all for your support and patience.

I have already sent out an email to each of you that I have confirmed for shipment on my mailing list, for those in the 50 States only. I am still working on international pricing and lists. If you did not receive an email but are expecting a printed copy to be sent to you domestically, please contact me to correct my records. Those in other countries should expect a confiramtion email shortly.

Warning: This work is not approved by church and state!

Inside Volume I:
Over 2,000 legal word-terms defined
Over 300 Bible texts/verses examined
Over 500 sourced quotes and citations
—=–

For all of the delays and seemingly purposeful obfuscations I have experienced in trying to get printed this private work in book-form without falling prey to the typical legalisms, big box print-on-demand mentality, and other corporate strangleholds, as well as doing so with the firm and unbroken insistence that it was printed without numbers, ISBN’s, barcodes, or any other “publishing” marks and government interventions and tracking devices, I could certainly tell you some amazing stories. I took the route less traveled, the hardest road, sticking with my demands of privacy and thus printing an unpublished work that is certainly not in any way registered or approved by church and state! Instead, I have chosen to learn from this series of unfortunate events some very valuable lessons, both legal and moral, to accept the things and persons I cannot change, and to be contented and happy that I finally found an honest printer.

“…I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I—
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.”

–Robert Frost

–=–

Though I may be telling my own story from some future prison or camp for political and religious dissenters, I am happy to say that I will be telling it with the utmost dignity. And yes, this certainly makes all the difference.

Though presently exhausted by this ongoing work and by the mental obstical course I just suffered, I will continue to work on Volume II and other works until I physically die or am made a civilly dead prisoner of the corporate church’s state. I figure that my next-next project after the Strawman series will be the history of the CAFR and how it was used to take us clandestinely into the globalism we find ourselves in today, and how combined government (an artificial persona), through investments and proxy shareholder voting, owns and controls it all! You aren’t shopping at Chevron, Costco, Apple, or Time Warner, you are always a “customer” of and shopping at government (a singular incorporation of all corporations). No corporation is created without (outside of) government. We live our commercial (fictional/dead) existence (persona) in a national company store, where all corporations are majority-share held by government investments, and where each board of directors is elected by proxy shareholder bidding by the collective, majority shareholder, which again is collectively government. And, of course, you can only spend government’s patented script, money or credit, which are both merely debt instruments — IOU’s. And so you are always using the property of another.

Not ironically, this was one of the biggest complaints of the original American colonists, that they should be taxed and forced to sped the script of the King of England, a script they could not create and had to borrow or earn from the king itself. But then, at least the colonists knew their status, that a colony is literally a company store of the crown, and that the word colony merely means the farm or plantation of a master.

These facts answer just about every question you may ever have about why corporations literally get away with murder, and why government never regulates corporations, for they are their main beneficiary and shareholding profiteer. And the highest corporate law is that the shareholders must make profit and gain on their investment. But this is another story… the story of the ultimate in conflict of interests.

I wish again here to thank everyone over the years who has donated towards my full time, unpaid activism, movie-making, radio hosting and guesting, and writing, all of which are freely shared with all who seek and always will be.

I again remind you that my new work, “Strawman: The Real Story of Your Artificial Person: Volume 1” is and always will be FREE to download in digital form (pdf) at my website, and that the printed version is not ready to be given (see website for instructions):

LINK–> strawmanstory.info

I am today updating the final, free version as printed, after correcting many spelling and grammatical mistakes, which will look then exactly as it is now printed. Please feel free to download and enjoy this work, both as a walkthrough of the legal matrix and as a seriously huge and utilizable resource outlet.

–=–
What Now?
–=–

1st of all, I think it’s time to dust off this old blog and start using it again. So… I’m back!

2nd, of course, I will continue with future volumes of Strawman and other works.

3rd, I’d say it’s about time to make another vaccine documentary. The ultimate documentary. One that cannot be outdone. One that names names and destroys false reputations. One that exposes even the “anti-vaccine” circuit as frauds in controlled opposition, who call for “safe” vaccines as if there is such a thing. But most importantly, one that shows vaccines for exactly what they are  — a well laid plan, as a time-released, biological weapon.

4th, and this is where I could use a bit of help, I’d like to start a radio show again. But you see, like many of you, I don’t know where I “fit in” any more, or at least who would be brave (or dumb) enough to permit me to speak with free reign about how little truth is being spewed in the so-called truth-movement. Who wants to hear that patriotism is a psychopathy like Stockholm Syndrome while at the same time hearing advertisements within commercial airtime by so-called “patriot” corporations, as if Chinese junk and red, white, and blue stuff can ever feel patriotic? Who wants to hear that most of us are not one of “We, the People” or that these so-called “People” don’t actually even exist in Reality, that “the People” is just a corporation (artificial person) called as the States? Who wants to let me rant about The Corporation Nation we are all unwitting yet voluntary agents (employees) of?

—=—

“A state, is called the coldest of all cold monsters. Coldly lieth it also; and this lie creepeth from its mouth: “I, the state, am the people.” It is a lie! Creators were they who created peoples, and hung a faith and a love over them: thus they served life. Destroyers, are they who lay snares for many, and call it the state: they hang a sword and a hundred cravings over them. Where there is still a people, there the state is not understood, but hated as the evil eye, and as sin against laws and customs.”

—Friedrich Nietzsche, from ‘Thus Spoke Zarathustra’

—=—

In short, it seems there is no place out there for the self-evident Truth! You see, the Truth doesn’t sell… only mythology sells. Empty hope without end sells. Fear sells. Lies sell. Sex sells. But undeniable Truth? There is simply no market for it. And so, I’ll just simply put it out there that I am looking for a new home for my new show. I already have a title…

RED PILL SUNDAY SCHOOL

TAGLINE: Buy the truth, and sell it not…” (Proverbs 32:32)

Want to hear me rant profusely and wax philosophical? Want to see the legal matrix (artificial womb) for what it is? Want to hear again from Patrick, Daniel, and other kindred spirits sharing this journey? Well then help me find an uncensored broadcasting home, if there is such an entity…

Or, maybe you fancy yourself organized, like a producer, and want to help me to organize and run a podcast? I’ll take a radio host spot from the highest bidder… which, of course, will be nothing, nada, zero, as it always is for those who will not — can not conform. Just let ’em know I am seeking a soapbox. And, of course, that I would love to do more radio, both interviews and hosting, now that this Strawman soft cover is finally finished and available.

On a final note, I wish to thank everyone that has helped me to finally get this work printed, and for trusting in me, both monetarily but especially with your time, care, and kind words. You know who you are, and you know I could not have done this project without you, from editing to spell-checking to donations to some much needed criticism.

A very special thanks to Craig Stuckless and his artistic hand, as the cover artist for this Strawman series. His brilliant work was given to the project freely, and the time and effort Craig put into this was incredible and incalculable to most. Thankfully, his professional experience with the print industry helped me in ways I cannot begin to relay or repay here.

Craig’s portfolio of artwork can be seen here: http://cargocollective.com/artofcraigs

For those who understand what it is to give your time freely as a professional, if anyone would like to help me raise some funds to offer to Craig as a gift for his many weeks of work on this art project, I’d be very appreciative. Like myself, like my now strange story, he is trying to escape the controlled corporate art world while at the same time attempting to use his professional skills for charitable and activist purposes. And that means sacrifice, both mentally and physically, socially and especially financially. Just let me know in an email or make a note that your donation should go to Craig And I’ll see to it. At this point, I am almost tapped out from printing and must still pay for the initial shipping of a few hundred copies of Strawman, so any help in gifting him is much appreciated. Craig has helped me out along the way in too many ways to even mention here. Other examples of his work on Strawman include these:

Just how much time and work did this take?

With all of this said, I can only hope this work was worth the wait, and that it brings forward to each of you what you have been seeking — self evident Truth and knowledge.

The latest version, which is the same as the now printed version (without index), will be posted and the update noted at StrawmanStrory.info and always free to download, with many errors now corrected. This will always be free in its pdf form, so feel free to share it freely, never for profit, with good intent. You cannot possibly steal from he who gives freely, so give without concern.

Now, however, I need you all once again, your word of mouth. Spread the website or give away the pdf at will, and help me to get onto different radio shows to spread this work and more importantly the True and only Law.

Volume II, by the way, is well in the works.

Check back soon at StrawmanStory.info for an updated, final and always free pdf to download.

Be and stay well, for you may already be the remnant…

Where The State Of Texas Hides Your Money


Ever wonder what your State government does with your exaction/extortion money called revenues, taxes, and fees?

I’d like to introduce you to the Texas State “ANNUAL CASH REPORT”, where it states that over $26 billion of your hard earned tax dollars are quietly tucked away in the State Treasurer Investment Fund.

That’s right folks, your money is invested in such things as toxic “Mortgage-Backed Securities”. How does that make you feel, that is considering the homeless and hungry rate is ever increasing? How do you feel knowing your tax money goes to funding bonds to Israel and other foreign “states”? How about federal securities gambling?

Well, perhaps you are curious where all of this investment wealth is accounted for within the Texas State government? I know I am…

The following statement of account balances is from the “Annual Cash Report” for the State of Texas for fiscal year 2013, and is the latest report.

Note that each “account” is a divided and restricted or unrestricted portion of one of the investment funds as shown in the Comprehensive Annual Financial Report.

So there you have it. Of course this is not reported in the budget report. Instead, government pretends to be broke and claims to need even more taxes and fees to support its ever-expanding business activities, as it instead stows away its earnings in investment funds so as to hide its gains and profits.

Remember… this is only the State government of Texas. This does not include all of the counties, cities, districts, authorities, and all of the other individual government corporations throughout the State of Texas, which when added together will dwarf these totals of the State alone.

So next time your lying legislator, treasurer, and governor tells y’all down there in Texas that they are broke, simply ask them to present their annual cash report and CAFR to and put these reports where their lying mouths are. But remember, they can’t help it. After all, they are professional liars (politicians)!

A Treatise On Freeing Mankind From Corporate Bond And Surety


I am a person who likes to learn as much as possible about an action before taking it. And the most important lesson I’ve learned thus far is that nothing worth learning or doing is easy, and its implementation is generally that much more difficult. Thus, I am learning as best I can while fishing for truth in a sea of disinformation and “Universal Deceit”. Unfortunately, it seems that often the best lessons come from the fatal mistakes in action of others now incarcerated or necessarily fled from the corporation nation of the United States, that tiny but magnanimous district set aside by fools for total tyranny and oppression over the true founding principles and declaration of common equity and natural law within the confederation of self-governing states.

With that said, the following should not be regarded and is not intended as legal advice, but rather anti-legal advice from a non-attorney flesh and blood man who has become self-aware. In this spirit, I wish to relay to my readers and listeners my own personal plans based on what I have learned thus far – an outline for becoming truly free; as opposed to the acceptance of political freedom as a political privilege from government, and the enjoyment of that freedom only as long as I obey government’s uncountable statutes and private corporate law. “The Constitution of no Authority” which supposedly substantiates this corporate district and its legal codes of no authority no longer serve the best interests of any man, even among the wealthiest and most status holding common citizens. The following simply and honestly represents nothing but my own perceived path and is posted here with the intention and hope that others may follow on similar intersecting courses. In the end, without fallacy or ill-logic, I believe this to be the only solution for a free and thriving human race – a Renaissance of the individual conscious that can only take place within the individual empathetic mind of natural men, one soul at a time…

Many barriers to process and critical thinking stand in the way of this path – the path to self-actualization and true liberty under nature. First and foremost, as a barrier to realizing the self, is the almost religious concept of what citizenship is. This artificial political status of being a citizen and “person” must be comprehended before one can proceed in disregarding citizenship as an unnatural, corporate thing. Most importantly, we must realize that citizenship is not a defined thing. It is just a word used to represent the various ways in which an individual man has been enfranchised (denizened) into the government corporation through artificial and illicit means, and this word vaguely describes the many webs that place into bondage the soul through its fleshy body or vessel as surety. Indeed, “citizenship” is nothing if not a collection of various already null and unlawful contracts, and is certainly not a single thing for which one can point a finger at. It is an intangible. You cannot confidently point to some thing and say that is a “citizen”, for a living man is not artificial as a citizen is. Citizenship is not anything but a legal presumption to be rebutted; for the presumption is that the natural man carrying the artificial person (citizen) is always acting as if dead and in a commercial activity with the state. The state wishes every man woman and child to believe that every action they take is a commercial venture to be regulated under corporate statute – even a trip to the grocery store or to drop the kids off at the park. Thus the most simple solution to this imposed state of artificiality is to create for yourself a disposition to where the government and its private BAR association courts can never assume you to be dead (an artificial person in regulated commerce) and in a status as an artificial corporate person. Simply stated, you must always be alive! For a living man is invisible to the government and its courts (jurisdiction) without an artificial (dead) person (state created identification) attached to the living body in surety and bond-age.

Let’s use a similar example: In order to officially quit my membership to a gym (membership = citizenship), I must have a solution in order to leave that gym. I must end my contract in good standing and with honor, lest that gyms collectors (agents) haunt me for the rest of my life as an honor-less debtor under contract.

The word solution means one and only one thing for our purposes, which in its legal definition means only to end or satisfy contract. There are no solutions to government tyranny and oppression of your natural rights under the natural law without a solution. There are no other forms or types of solutions, for the word has only this meaning in legal language. Thus, as government is a purely artificial legally created corporation, one must only speak to government as a citizen in a legal capacity with legal terms. Any other attempts to communicate or to terminate your contractual relationship with government will be fruitless and without standing, for as an artificial person speaking to an artificial corporation, you must speak the language of the dead. There is no love or other emotion in legal entities, for they are lifeless and without a soul. A protest sign will be ignored, simply because the language is not written in the proper legal context, not notarized, and not sent to the proper legal office. Emotion is not recognized in legal settings any more than the soul – it is out of order and without artificial political status. Emotion stems from life. Government acknowledges only the dead person.

So this process of ending our membership (citizenship) with the United States must similarly be an honorable one. If you have debt or other form of obligation it must come to a solution before your contractual separation from the government, for separation of your body and soul as surety in contract to 2the go2vernment created artificial (dead) person cannot be done without honor. Only in honor can one proceed…

Honor, not ironically, in the legal language again means one and only one thing – duty to pay or satisfy a contractual obligation or debt. Government has no natural honor among men for government is not a man – it is an artificial person (corporation). The biggest mistake you can make is to expect dignity and honor from government. Government is dead, and thus only operates under the legal language. In other words, in no way does government honor your mother or father, accept to recognize their status as dead citizen in order to force payment of a debt or obligation. And government certainly does not honor God and the natural law. An unnatural entity does not exist and does not recognize anything in nature, and is not capable of knowing God. Government has no soul!

So before I can proceed and be transformed into my inherent honorable natural man with no contractual ties (citizenship) to any corporation (government) through any artificial person (contract), I must first honor (pay or satisfy) all of my contractual debts (duties/obligations)… even if I know these contractual obligations were made in fraud. This concept may be repulsive to many conscious folks out there, but we must remember that in man’s law, the law of contract represents the obligation of persons who applied for that status and debt freely and knowingly under unilateral contract. While many other “remedies” in government’s legal codes exist to escape a legal contractual debt without honoring it, the debt never truly goes away until it is honored. And an honorable man (representing a “person” in contract) will go much farther than one with a record of dishonor in their person, even within government. Like it or not, this is a self-evident truth.

Man’s law does not distinguish honor in any capacity or relation to the soul, for the legal language is unemotional and has no traditional honor or chivalry as we generally and conversationally perceive the words from scripture, our parents, and from other living sources. Honor, again, only means one thing in legalese… to pay off a debt or satisfy an obligation (political duty). As a citizen/person, you must act like one and speak accordingly.

When in Rome, give Caesar his due…

A clean, debt free artificial person thus carries no ties or bond to the natural man it was placed upon, for there is no longer any duty as surety if there is no obligation or debt attached to the artificial person (end and satisfaction of contract), thus no need or legal cause for collectors (agents). The surety need not exist if no future commerce shall be utilized by the natural man under the artificial corporate person. And thus no bond can legally continue to exist to require citizenship if no debt is acquired or existing under that artificial person (corporate surname). In other words, debt and obligation are the puppet strings that insure and control your strawman, and satisfaction of that debt and obligation equals the cutting of those strings – a fly escaping the web.

STRAWMAN – 1. Draft or outline copy ready for suggestions and comments. 2. Third party used as a cover in illegal or shady deals. 3. Nominee director. 4. A weak or flawed person with no standing. Also called man of straw.

STRAMINEUS HOMO – L. Latin. A man of straw, one of no substance, put forward as bail or surety.

–Black’s Law 2nd Edition

After many years of research and comprehension, it has become my firm opinion that no process or remedy within man’s commercial law of government will be successful, for it requires one to still play under government tyranny in an artificial capacity. One cannot escape from a deep hole while standing within. One must partake in this important step (satisfaction of debt), for there can be no legal snares left to entangle the natural man (mind, body and soul) with what the corporation (government) has subscribed to the debt-based artificial (dead) citizen (person).

It is my hope that when one considers the information I am presenting here, it will become clear that this is the only true reasonable and logically correct solution there is to the debt slavery we call citizenship, for always remember that to government, solution can and only ever will mean “to end or satisfy contract”.

When considering our status in the eyes and opinion of the soulless inequity of the ad-ministerial court system, debt and obligation under contract must come to an honorable solution before we can proceed to shed government as our corporate ad-ministrant. As per this reality and necessity of legally honoring our own individual debts and obligations, it is imperative for you to understand the following Maxim’s of law, which will be fully understood and are a requirement to be utilized by the administrative judge who oversees your person in a trial if you try and get out of your debt or obligation without honorable (paid or legal) satisfaction and solution. In all cases I’ve read, these maxims are always applied, a well laid trap with the appearance of holy righteousness. Unfortunately, the law does not favor the uneducated, and allows with perfect clarity for the common man to enter into fraud through consent and contract. Here are a few of those maxims that will be considered when trying to bring debt or obligation to a solution (translated from Latin) in less than an honorable way:

–=–

The contract makes the law.

The agreement of the parties makes the law of the contract.

The agreement of the parties overcomes or prevails against the law.

Consent makes the law:A contract is a law between the parties,
which can acquire force only by consent.

He who consents cannot receive an injury.

Consent removes or obviates a mistake.

Consent makes the law: The terms of a contract, lawful in its purpose,
constitute the law as between the parties.

Agreement takes the place of the law: the express understanding
of parties supersedes such understanding as the law would imply.

–=–

One who avails himself of the benefits conferred by statute cannot deny its validity.

What I approve I do not reject. I cannot approve and reject at the same time.
I cannot take the benefit of an instrument, and at the same time repudiate it.

He who derives a benefit from a thing, ought to feel the disadvantages attending it.

He who enjoys the benefit, ought also to bear the burden.

He who enjoys the advantage of a right takes the accompanying disadvantage.
A privilege is, as it were, a private law.

A privilege is a personal benefit and dies with the person.

–=–

He who does not deny, admits.

He is not deceived who knows himself to be deceived.

He who does not forbid a crime while he may, sanctions it.

He who does not repel a wrong when he can, induces it.

He who does not forbid what he can forbid, seems to assent.

He who does not prevent what he can prevent, is viewed as assenting.

–=–

There is no fiction without law.

Fictions arise from the law, and not law from fictions.

Where truth is, fiction of law does not exist.

Fiction is against the truth, but it is to have truth.

A fiction is a rule of law that assumes something
which is or may be false as true.

In a fiction of law, equity always subsists.

A fiction of law injures no one.

Fiction of law is wrongful if it works loss or injury to any one.

–=–

An outlaw is, as it were, is put out of the protection of the law.

–=–

Please remember that anytime you appear before a magistrate or false-judge, these are but a few of the maxims of law that will be honored. Here we see the reasons why the judicial is seemingly so corrupt, when in reality it is just following the maxims of law in promoting the fraudulent contractual nature of citizenship and other contracts. Truly, the court does not suffer fools – those men who are ignorant of their own contractual and consenting nature that places artificial fictional law of contract over that of God’s natural law. In other words, the courts are literally required to recognize even the most fraudulent contract under man’s law according to these scriptural maxims. We have played the fool for too long, and it is time for us all to have solution in honor. For the natural law of God suffers no fools either. Under natural law, one is wholly responsible for all of their actions, and no protections are offered for those who cannot govern themselves under that only de jure law.

Why must we first recognize and then cast out that of our artificial (dead) person?

Remembering that the scripture creates the law and its maxims, we can read continuously from the Bible that man should never hold an artificial status above others:

“For there is no respecting of persons with God.” (Romans 2: 11)

“Of a truth I perceive that God is no respecter of persons: but in every nation he that feareth him, and worketh righteousness, is accepted with him” (Acts 10:34-35 , KJV)

“For not the hearers of the law are just before God, but the doers of the law shall be justified (i.e. walking the path of natural law). For when the Gentiles (people/citizens/persons), which have not the (natural) law, do by nature the things contained in the (government) law, these, having not the (natural) law, are a (false/private) law unto themselves (person-hood): Which shew the work of the law written in their hearts, their conscience also bearing witness, and their thoughts the mean while (in court and in churches) accusing or else excusing one another…” (Romans 2, 13-15, KJV)

It is important to comprehend that the Bible as used in the court room represents the evidence and therefore the abused authority of law. The word testament means evidence.

It is also important to note that the word scripture has nothing to do with religion, but is a general term for the passing on of knowledge. Therefore any book of knowledge could technically be referred to as “scripture”. But we must also remember that only one book is “authorized” as the scripture of the natural law, which is the Bible. Your personal beliefs go out the window on this subject, for we are speaking here of government not yourself.

TEST’AMENT, n. [L. testamentum, from testor, to make a will.] 1. A solemn authentic instrument in writing, by which a person declares his will as to the disposal of his estate and effects after his death. This is otherwise called a will. A testament, to be valid, must be made when the testator is of sound mind, and it must be subscribed, witnessed and published in such manner as the law prescribes. –Webster’s Dictionary of English Language, 1828

SCRIP’TURE, n. [L. scriptura, from scribo, to write.] 1. In its primary sense, a writing; any thing written. 2. Appropriately, and by way of distinction, the books of the Old and New Testament; the Bible. The word is used either in the singular or plural number, to denote the sacred writings or divine oracles, called sacred or holy, as proceeding from God and containing sacred doctrines and precepts. There is not any action that a man ought to do or forbear, but the Scripture will give him a clear precept or prohibition for it. Compared with the knowledge which the Scriptures contain, every other subject of human inquiry is vanity and emptiness.

Remember, this is the legal definition, not your own. And we have to remember that words like sacred and holy usually refer to the opinions of government and church, not to God. The oath is a sacred ritual of the church, for instance, but not because it is sacred to God. The church and government, acting in replacement (vicar) of Christ (the new testament and evidence of law) is the legal entity receiving benefit of the pledge and oath, not God. Just as U.S. soldiers take an oath to the president and the constitution, but never to God or to the common man or citizens. To the contrary, all soldiers, officers, congress, attorneys, and the president of the United States take an oath to protect the District of Columbia corporation called “United States” and its “possessions” from the foreign and domestic people of America. The United States is not America. It sits outside of America and is not one of the states united. It is a corporation for which free people contract with in order to receive “protection” from it. But after reading the maxims above, it is easy to comprehend that with the benefit of rights, freedom, and protection, citizens must suffer 1,000’s of obligations and punishments, taxes and licenses, exaction and extortion of every kind. This is the price of respecting artificial persons, just as the Bible forewarns.

Back to Scripture:

“Let us appreciate the fact that while the Law of Moses (Old Testament or evidence of law for Jews) has been abrogated, we are under the law of Christ (Gal 6:2 I Cor. 9: 21). This law is unique in that it is law and grace (remedy) combined, hence, the perfect law of liberty (see Jn 1:17). Jude refers to “common salvation” available to all men through Christ (Jude 3)”, (which later became known as the “common law”, and is now usurped by the law of Merchants and thieves (bankers)).

RESPECT OF PERSONS – re-spekt’: The phrase nasa’ phanim, means literally, “lift up the face,” and, among other translations, is rendered indifferently “accept” or “respect the person” in the King James Version (contrast Prov 18:5 and 24:23). As applied to a (prostrate) suppliant, the phrase means “receive him with favor,” and is so used in 1 Sam 25:35; Mal 1:8,9 (compare Gen 19:21, etc.). By a shift in force the phrase came to mean “accept the person instead of the cause” or “show partiality” (Job 13:8,10 the American Standard Revised Version), and is so used commonly. A literal translation into Greek gave lambano prosopon (Sirach 35:13 (32:16); Lk 20:21; Gal 2:6), with the noun prosopolempsia, “face-taking” (Rom 2:11; Eph 6:9; Col 3:25; Jas 2:1), rendered uniformly “respect of persons” in English Versions of the Bible. A noun prosopolemptes, “respecter of persons,” and a verb prosopolempteo, are found Acts 10:34; Jas 2:9. God’s judgment rests solely on the character of the man and will be influenced by no worldly (Eph 6:9) or national (Rom 2:11) considerations. (Source: http://classic.net.bible.org/dictionary.php?word=Respect%20of%20Persons)

In essence, we see here that the status of person-hood (a hood of artificial clothing/status) refers to the assignment of citizenship or other legal status, for which God (nature) does not recognize or respect. In short, we are born naked and will die naked – stripped of any wealth and perceived legal status assigned by unnatural persons (governments, societies, and churches) that we also should not respect according to the words of Christ in the Bible, who simply taught and shared the evidence of how to live under natural law without persons (corporations). Where more than in the United States of America do we see the pervasive state of artificial status in justifying atrocities of war, pestilence, and poverty over other persons and nations? And what people in the world consider themselves more privileged as persons/citizens of the state than in America, denying all others this status without “naturalizing” into an artificial status called citizen or resident?

America and its population are literally suffocating under a pile of artificial personages and privilege against nature, with virtually no man living under the natural law. And in case you haven’t noticed, nature in all of its heavenly glory is suffering because of it.

In reality, the District and corporation we call the United States has only one purpose – to step over the natural law and natural inherent rights of men, only to replace those rights with revokable privileges against God’s (natural) Law. For an artificial person (government corporation) can not deal in nature, but only in artificiality and death. It must by necessity for its continuity strip anything natural from mankind in order to rule over God and nature, for God recognizes no persons. And if it’s not obvious by now, neither should you.

Step By Step
–=–

I will also say that my research and conclusions have led me to understand that the only actual process for becoming a free man without legal constraints (person-hood) of any kind involves the following necessities:

1) Perhaps the hardest step is the 1st one. For the government of the Church has destroyed true knowledge and understanding of the Bible and its paramount place in civil (pagan) and cannon (ecclesiastical) law. The civil law was created within the Catholic church to deal with non-church related business. The corporate church has promoted the anthropomorphism and fundamentalist fallacy of the allegories (stories) within the New Testament, hiding the fact that the testament is the very evidence of the law of nature and the path to being self-governing free men as presented in stories that men could tell other men in their illiteracy, similar to mythology as one of many scriptures of alagoric knowledge. The Bible indeed is the foundation and land-lordly god-like authority of all of man’s ecclesiastic and civil law to rule over men in contract and force, offering a choice of freewill to follow mammon (man’s statutory legal law and debt-money system) or to follow the path taught by the character of Christ under God and nature.

In freemasonry and other societies and corporate churches, the common people are considered fools – goyim, to be managed and controlled for their acceptance and unwitting consent to man’s law with absolute ignorance of what the Bible teaches of the natural path. And this is why corporate churches rule supreme over the reality of the Bible as tools of those holding sacred scriptural knowledge. And so first and foremost, regardless of your actual belief, you must recognize a higher power (God) so as to disclaim the Vatican’s and Crown’s claim of being the “lord god” over man, acting in place of God as temporal (non-spiritual) ruler in God’s name – the “Vicor of Christ”. In other words, one must become a true Christian without title or status (person). For most this is a difficult transition, no matter if you are religious or atheist. For a true Christian cannot also be a member of any corporate church, be it Catholic, Methodist, Protestant, Jewish (old testament/evidence), etc… no more than a true natural man can be a member (citizen) of government and also be a free man. These 501 tax-exempt churches are all without exception idols (simulations) and are corporations of and for the government. They are ultimately false, containing their own doctrines against and purposefully to hide the true teachings within the Bible. True Christianity has no borders, buildings, or other symbols, for it is of the individual mind, body, and soul. Christianity is the words of the character Christ, not the words of a minister or preacher.

This is similar to the oxymoron of “sovereign citizen”, for of course one can not be sovereign with supreme power over all and also be a subject to government rule as a citizen (debt slave). Likewise, one cannot be Christian and at the same time follow another (man-made) doctrine. One cannot worship saints as a Catholic and also qualify to be a Christian, for idol worship is against Christ’s teachings, and even against the ten commandments. When a people (goy) worship outside of the natural law and from outside of nature, the consequences are easily seen today, as most proclaimed Christians follow church doctrine as opposed to the actual teachings of Christ in natural law. For God is nature. A cursory look up to the polluted and Geo-engineered sky is proof enough of mans battle to overcome God’s law of nature.

This action does not require belief in “God” or that Jesus was a real man, for that argument is yet another obfuscation from the teachings of the Bible of the natural law (God’s law) and by those whom for centuries have tried to exterminate true followers of natural law without government, sometimes called “true Christians”. But even a follower of Christ’s teachings understands that the term “Christian” is yet another legal status, and that Christ never commanded his followers to use that title and legal status. All that is required is the deep understanding and true comprehension that without acknowledgment of a higher power (God), man may rule as lord in God’s place. This is the law and doctrine of consent and contract, and God will never respect or protect persons. And the act of becoming truly a follower of Christ’s teachings may be translated here as nothing more than to follow the teachings of Jesus Christ to learn and live under God’s Natural Law. For the Maxim’s of law in all governments are of scripture, and this is easily verified. Denial of God as a higher power than government and church (mammon) actually legally proves that man’s governing law must prevail over God’s law – the price of ignorance for those who have been brainwashed by the church to dismiss or replace the Bible with church doctrine – which is ironically the creator of the very mammon the church wishes man to follow so as to govern and control man.

Here again, the judge is obligated and will conduct himself ad-ministerially upon the following Maxim’s of Law, (God’s Law = Natural Law) and always presumes that the defendant in any case knows God and chooses mammon (the doctrine of freewill) as God’s replacement. A citizen turns his back on God, and therefore chooses government over self-governance according to natural law. In reality, each court is a church. The judge is present to ad-minister the evidence of law. You must be able to tell that minister (judge) that you are not a member (citizen) of his church (government), and that your only judge will be a higher power than the state pretending to be gods.

These are more of the maxims of law, that the ad-minister (judge) uses, and is why the Bible is present in every court for swearing in:

–=–

All men know God. [Hebrews 8:11]

That is the highest law which favors religion.

To swear (in by oath) is to call God to witness, and is an act of religion.

Truth, by whomever pronounced, is from God.

Truth is the mother of justice.

Truth fears nothing but concealment.

He who becomes a soldier of Christ
has ceased to be a soldier of the world. [2 Timothy 2:3-4]

No man warring for God should be troubled by secular business.

If ever the law of God and man are at variance,
the former are to be obeyed in derogation of the later. [Acts 5:29]

That which is against Divine Law is repugnant to society and is void.

Where the Divinity is insulted the case is unpardonable.

Human things never prosper when divine things are neglected.

The Law of God and the law of the land are all one,
and both favor and preserve the common good of the land.

–=–

The presumption that all men know God is the most important aspect of man’s ecclesiastical and civil (pagan) law, for we must remember that the Bible is evidence (testament) of the law, presented as both mammon and natural within its pages. Man may choose to respect the person assigned by government to him, but this necesarily projects that person into the pagan law of civil authority (law without God’s natural law considered). The taking of status and person-hood is the taking of civil (pagan) law, and the understanding that the court can offer no protection from God (natural law). Therefore, as the law of nature is taught only by the character Jesus Christ, following in the natural law path in self-governance to escape church and government oppression and contract is the same thing as becoming a “true Christian”. For the follower of Christ’s teachings according to the Bible (evidence of the law), must by nature shed all artificial persons (corporations) to be free under that law. A true Christian has no membership to any church or government, and yet he or she is governed by the laws of God and nature to do no harm to others or their property as taught. Your personal beliefs in God and religion are irrelevant, for we are only talking here about the path to being free men (men = natural male and female, i.e. mankind).

In the end, to be a free man, one must have a remedy and exemption from man’s law. This remedy is the evidence of Jesus Christ as lord and savior. This may be repulsive to many foolish people because of the conditioning of the corporate church to destroy any semblance of true Christianity in lieu of the Vicor’s ecclesiastical rule, but we must remember that we are not speaking in religious terms here, but legal ones. For we are dealing not with a natural creation of God, but a legal creation called government, and therefore we must have a religious exemption that is of higher authority than man’s claim to rule as a lesser god. In short, church and government considers itself to be the middleman between us and God. So we must bypass the middleman and report directly to the God (authority) that the megalomaniacs of government and church purport to rule by and with permission of for those who cannot govern themselves under God’s law.

LORD = landlord, master in law (currently government and corporate church)

LORD, n. 1. A master; a person possessing supreme power and authority; a ruler; a governor. Man over man he made not lord. But now I was the lord of this fair mansion. 2. A tyrant; an oppressive ruler. 3. A husband. I oft in bitterness of soul deplores my absent daughter, and my dearer lord. My lord also being old. Gen. 18. 4. A baron; the proprietor of a manor; as the lord of the manor. 5. A nobleman; a title of honor in Great Britain given to those who are noble by birth or creation; a peer of the realm, including dukes, marquises, earls, viscounts and barons. Archbishops and bishops also, as members of the house of lords, are lords of parliament. Thus we say, lords temporal and spiritual. By courtesy also the title is given to the sons of dukes and marquises, and to the eldest sons of earls. 6. An honorary title bestowed on certain official characters; as lord advocate, lord chamberlain, lord chancellor, lord chief justice, &c.7. In scripture, the Supreme Being; Jehovah. When Lord, in the Old Testament, is printed in capitals, it is the translation of JEHOVAH, and so might, with more propriety, be rendered. The word is applied to Christ, Ps. 110. Col. 3. and to the Holy Spirit, 2Thess. 3. As a title of respect, it is applied to kings, Gen. 40. 2Sam. 19. to princes and nobles, Gen 42. Dan. 4. to a husband, Gen. 18. to a prophet, 1Kings 18. 2Kings 2. and to a respectable person, Gen. 24. Christ is called the Lord of glory, 1Cor. 2. and Lord of lords, Rev. 19.

(Note here that only when capitalized in the Bible is the word God or Lord applied to Christ or to God. All other Bible words like the un-capitalized “gods” and “lords” refer to the temporal replacement of Christ/God on earth as landlord ruling by false authority of Christ. This is the Pope, the Biships, the Queen, the Presidents, the Prime Ministers, etc. Often they rule under a “Corporation Sole” as a sovereign outside of their own created legal civil laws. A corporation sole is of the church, not of the government.

LORD, v.t. To invest with the dignity and privileges of a lord.

(Notice the word lord is not capitalized, thus not referring to God. A lord is a form of artificial person, and should not be respected or given false authority under God and natural law.)

LORD, v.i. To domineer; to rule with arbitrary or despotic sway; sometimes followed by over, and sometimes by it, in the manner of a transitive verb.

–above from Webster’s Dictionary of the English Language, 1828

SAVIOR = saved from artificial person-hood (slavery) and placed into the natural law.

SAVIOR, n. savyur. One that saves or preserves; but properly applied only to Jesus Christ, the Redeemer (remedy in law), who has opened the way to everlasting salvation by his obedience and death, and who is therefore called the Savior, by way of distinction, the Savior of men, the Savior of the world. General Washington may be called the saver, but not the savior of his country

REDEE’MER, n. 1. One who redeems or ransoms.2. The Savior of the world, JESUS CHRIST.

REDEE’M, v.t. [L. redimo; red, re, and emo, to obtain or purchase.] 1. To purchase back; to ransom; to liberate or rescue from captivity or bondage, or from any obligation or liability to suffer or to be forfeited, by paying an equivalent; as, to redeem prisoners or captured goods; to redeem a pledge. 2. To repurchase what has been sold; to regain possession of a thing alienated (i.e. the body as bonded surety) by repaying the value of it to the possessor (solution by end or satisfaction of contract)… 7. To save. He could not have redeemed a portion of his time for contemplating the powers of nature. 8. To perform what has been promised; to make good by performance. He has redeemed his pledge or promise.9. In law, to recall an estate, or to obtain the right to re-enter upon a mortgaged estate by paying to the mortgagee his principal, interest, and expenses or costs. 10. In theology, to rescue and deliver from the bondage of sin and the penalties of God’s violated law, by obedience and suffering in the place of the sinner, or by doing and suffering that which is accepted in lieu of the sinner’s obedience. Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us. Gal. 3. Titus 2.11. In commerce, to purchase or pay the value in specie, of any promissory note, bill or other evidence of debt, given by the state, by a company or corporation, or by an individual. The credit of a state, a banking company or individuals, is good when they can redeem all their stock, notes or bills, at par. To redeem time, is to use more diligence in the improvement of it; to be diligent and active in duty and preparation. Eph. 5.

–above from Webster’s Dictionary of the English Language, 1828

It is important to note here that the word sin or sinner as used in the Bible also has duel meanings, depending upon which lord/Lord or god/God it is being applied to. The word sin is taken from the word “synn” – in old english, “moral wrongdoing, injury, mischief, enmity, feud, guilt, crime, offense against God, misdeed,. This word within the legal law of man’s temporal church and government however, means to sin against the government law of mammon, and thus be subject to the wrath of the lord god (church and state). Sin, in legal law, means to be “guilty” of a crime against church or government, not against God and nature. Government is not of nature, and therefore a sin against government is not a sin against God. The Declaration of Independence spells this out quite nicely, as this was a declaration of the natural inherent rights of men, whereas the constitution was a declaration of man’s rule of law over God’s natural law. These two documents are totally opposed to each other, and yet they are taught to both be inspired by God. The the constitution is nothing but the creation of and respect of a person (corporation). How can that be inspired by God?

The word hell also refers to two different places. One, the spiritual Hell, refers to the spiritual world. But hell was actually the true name of the dungeon or prison located beneath the kings courts in older days (debtors prisons). These were for the goyim (persons) who did not honor (pay) their debts to the king and church on time.

HELL – The name formerly given to a place under the exchequer chamber, where the king’s debtors were confined. Rich. Diet  –Black’s Law Dictionary, 2nd Edition

Unbeknownst and just out of reach of the collective group-think mentality of the citizens of the United States, each and every person is literally living in hell – a giant open-air prison for debtors as government chattel. The national debt and ongoing bankruptcy of the United States corporation ensures that all persons as citizens and all registered property and real estate are declared to be used as the good faith and credit of the United States as collateral for the bankruptcy under martial law (see Leiber Code).
And so it turns out that all of these words we have taken for granted, with the help of government,  its corporate religions, and a horrific system of required government education. Most of our language in fact has duel meanings under the natural and political (legal) realm. In the end, the English language is a word magik trap for those who are controlled as goy by the corporate church and governments around the world.

Forget the doctrines of religion, for the teachings of walking on the path of natural law is the only religion (in America, as recognized by legal law); one without private corporate doctrine. And it’s teacher is the character of Jesus Christ. It requires no church and no leader but you. What may happen to ones beliefs and “faith” after one is walking this path of God (nature) is a whole other subject, and is for the individual to work out for themselves outside of corporations and falsely taught doctrines that take one away from the natural path to worship saints, symbols, and sacrileges. It is my belief that more people will come back to God and nature by walking the natural law path than will ever be converted through fear and intimidation of the Pope and Ministers of corporations with their own designs to enslave the mind and body – the vessel for the soul.

For through Christ’s teachings of natural law all things are possible, if only there’s no government to stand in the way.

But more importantly, through Christ’s teachings, one may recognize that because some thing is possible, it very well might ought not be created against nature. “Do as thou wilt”, the infamous church of satanism’s coveted credo, was stolen and warped from the original credo of Christ, which is written – “Therefore all things whatsoever ye would that men should do to you, do ye even so to them: for this is the law and the prophets.” (Mathew 7:12). In natural law, this is easily stated as do no harm to others or their property. With this rule, no societal law can be broken, and a free man may never need the judgement of the courts of that society of artificial persons playing god.

2) Now that the soul is taken care of and has the safety, security, and lawful and legal remedy of the natural law of God to fall upon as recognized legally by the state and its courts of inequity, we must now focus on the physical body – legally referred to as the vessel. Each individual person must begin the arduous process of shedding their corporate veil of clothing, ridding all contractual connections to “the state” and shedding all positive law rights, privileges, immunities, and benefits from government – for God and nature recognizes and respects none of these personages. Acceptance of any benefit or right from government to exalt oneself over others in unnatural inequity necessarily requires the natural living man to become and respect an artificial person (status). Thus no tie or contract must be left unsatisfied regarding the citizen. The Bible states over and over to not respect “persons”. This refers to our own corporate fiction called the artificial person, as well to the entirety of all corporations, including church and government.

So if we consider for a moment, our end goal here is to never be a dead (artificial) person, and to always be in the disposition of being a living, sentient being under God’s law and no other. If one is never an artificial (dead) person in a dead pledge, one can never be recognized as anything but a living natural man. He cannot be a person, for a person is artificial. He cannot be a citizen, for a citizen is artificial. He cannot be a member, for a membership is an artificial status requiring a person. However, he can be a true Christian, for being a Christian requires no membership or citizenship, no contract, nothing artificial, and it has no fictional borders or legalities. We seek a civil death.

DEAD PLEDGEA mortgage; mortuum vadium. –Black’s Law Dictionary, 2nd Edition

MORTMAIN – A term applied to denote the alienation of lands or tenements to any corporation, sole or aggregate, ecclesiastical or temporal. These purchases having been chiefly made by religious houses, in consequence of which lands became perpetually inherent in one dead hand, this has occasioned the general appellation of “mortmain” to be applied to such alienations.

DEAD HAND – A provision contained within some POISON PILL defenses preventing the acquisition of the company by another firm even if a majority of shareholders approve of the offer. Only incumbent DIRECTORS can remove the provision.

CIVIL DEATH – Civil death, which is that change in a person’s legal and civil condition which deprives him of civic rights and juridical capacities and qualifications, as natural death extinguishes his natural condition. It follows as a consequence of being attainted of treason or felony, in English law, and anciently of entering a monastery or abjuring the realm. The person in this condition is said to be civiliter mortuus, civilly dead, or dead in law.

To obtain the status of free man, one must necessarily kill his civil artificial person – he or she must have a civil death to live under the natural law. For again, God and nature do not respect or recognize persons. We are born naked and ultimately die naked. We  are born innocent under nature and we take no status with us in our natural death. We cannot hide from our actions, even when done under the auspices of artificial persons, for the person dies with the man and God recognizes and respects no person.

3) Next comes the Paperwork. Form SSA-521 is a good place to start, though through my own research it may be better to not use any government (mammon) produced forms but to emulate them and US CODE in the scribing of such legal notification and demand in freehand. This form SSA-521 (or legal demand) kills the original application for Social Security, nipping it in the butt so that the account or trust attached to the monetized application cannot exist or be attached to the man through his or her name (corporate surname). This is one step in detaching your natural body from being a surety to the contractual nature of the artificial person government has assigned to you. This is a retroactive step to nullify this person (number) by declaring it fraud from its inception, as no child can make a contract under age and without understanding. Once this is done and verified, any and all contracts, including the DMV driver’s license, Selective Service, Voter Registration, and any and all other accounts or trusts connected to the Social Security number are automatically null and void due to the now recognized fraud of that number and person. So a series of legal demands would need to be sent as notice and verification to each individual government agency severing these now illegitimate contracts. I would then sever any personal contracts for which I had used my artificial person as bail and surety with (I must end or satisfy all contracts as the solution). This would include my gym, Costco, the library, etc. The end goal would be to have a completely debt and contract free “person” that is attachable to the natural man, for only then can the natural man not be forcibly held as surety for the debts and contracts of the artificial person (in the court’s opinion). Thus the state cannot invoke the authority of its position of lord god over your person by holding you as a free man under the real “God” with Christ as your remedy responsible for any debt or obligation of the person.

–=–

4) The next hardest step – Quit ones job. I would of course attempt to be immediately rehired as a “represented” employee that is a private contractor and non-taxpayer. Nothing really has to change here, other than the ensured severing of the contractual relationship with the State and IRS to be a taxpayer/citizen. As I said, no contractual state of artificiality can be left other than the bare minimum personal contract without the corporate name. Many use only a handshake. Many revert to getting paid in gold or other commodities or services. Anything is better than being a slave to mammon.

–=–

5) Declare your independence from government and your dependence on Christ/God in remedy simultaneously. I have written an extensive declaration of my own individual independence of which I will be posting to the Federal and State websites and perhaps carring personally to the federal district, as well as many international forums. I’m not sure this step needs to be done in any order, but I will personally likely reserve it until this point when all debts are honored and obligations null.

If you’d like to read the first draft of my own personal declaration which needs editing and additions, click the link below:

–=–

6) Be free…

But now the journey really just begins, for as you have probably noted, the Bible tells us that true Christians (followers of Christ’s teachings) will without a doubt be persecuted and even killed for their efforts to be separated from the corporate, corporal world of artificial church and state person-hood. Since at this point you will certainly be one of the very few true Christians on this continent, you will have no government to protect you or elevate you to a person-hood that grants you false status over other men. You will be responsible for all of your own actions, without the false paradigm of insurance and social welfare. You will be shunned by corporations who wish you to join them and become artificial members/citizens again. It will be a constant temptation to become artificial if only for convenience of the trans-humanist biometric agenda. Your children will be shunned, but at least they will for once be your own with no legality that says they belong to the state. Your use of credit cards will be nullified. You will not be able to use biometrics, for there will be no artificial person/citizen that a biometric scanner can match you to, for you are now 100% of the time a living sentient being with no strawman.

And yet unbeknownst to most, it is actually illegal to require a social security number from an applicant. A free man may sue that man posing as a “person” for discrimination. For as a free man, one may still use the restrictive laws of government against it.

Honestly, from this point on, only experience alone will reveal the path, unless you can find others walking in it. I intend to start a community if at all possible, or find one already in existence for support and fellowship. In theory and in practice this can not be turned into a cult, for there is no sovereign ruler but yourself over your own will and (new) testament of Christ. You have no obligation but to obey the laws of nature, do no harm, and be responsible for your actions. And as a guidepost to avoiding the doctrines of persons, any man who seeks your membership in blood or by signature is indeed not on the right path. This makes avoidance of mammon almost second nature.

Honestly, you will have to figure it out as you go, even as you are persecuted. But persecution is indeed a badge of courage and honor – of non-conformity to mammon. This is the best I can describe what my goals will be. Unfortunately, the rewards of being truly free under God and nature is likely not appealing to most citizen-slaves that are in many ways vested in their own debt enslavement, from pensions to welfare, which as discussed is a perfectly legal form of servitude and slavery under the false god called government and church.

Walking into Christian persecution may not sound like success to most, but to me it sounds like the road to heaven as harmony with nature and therefore God.

The thought of walking through the TSA checkpoint at the airport by simply and honorably stating that I am not in fact a U.S. citizen and that my business is private here as a natural man without name or status is especially appealing to me, as I simply say no to being scanned and touched inappropriately. For there is no jurisdiction that applies to a free man under the self-governance of God but that of nature. I do know of others who have created their own “I.D.” – for identification is whatever you say and choose it to be when you have not to bow to anyone else but Christ’s jurisdiction.

Like I said, this is not legal advice. I hope the harsh reality of it harmonizes with your natural instinct. I believe it is the only way, for I don’t believe one status is better than another – that a house slave is still a slave no matter how wealthy and privileged. UCC and other methods and remedies cannot by their nature make a man free, for they all require some corporate status of person-hood or other artificiality or trust, where upon the doctrine of commerce creates legal contract.

I suppose you could say that being a free and natural man means most of all that you will be totally and wholly 100% responsible for your own well-being and safety, and for that of all others. It means no welfare, no medicare, no retirement, and no protection from the nanny government. This is enough to “make most people love their servitude”, to quote Huxley.

Most of all I wish to empathize. I understand your reticence when it comes to the word “God”. My mind is much too analytical and rational to accept the doctrines of corporate churches, as I am sure that most professed corporate Christians feel the same way beneath their public personas within their perspective church settings. This remedy is for all people, for it requires no doctrine, membership, or contract but that of holding precious the natural law. A year ago, before I comprehended the true form and authority of the Bible as the law of man and nature, I would have properly poo-poo’ed this treatise of mine as crazy and religious nonsense. Only time may make one realize their foolish ways, myself included. So here is my own personal truth…

I don’t personally believe in or bow to any God, only because God is not something that man can comprehend. I do not anthropomorphize God into a man, for that spells out the arrogance of man and his quest to rule in the “personification”of God’s name. I acknowledge a higher power I do not and cannot understand in this state of temporal being, and that God is in fact everything we see, taste, touch, and feel. God is nature; and the mathematical perfection of nature and the golden proportion is proof of this to me. But still I do not say God is human, for this is naught but the teachings from the arrogance of men who seek to rule through impersonation of God and to justify their dastardly actions. In fact I would say only the arrogance of man allows him or her to think they would be able to perceive God. That said, belief is not the point, and is not a requirement. For on this earth there are 7 billion different versions of what God is. The reality of God is likely not even close to any of those 7 billion opinions. The reality is that if God exists, God would exist despite mine or your belief and despite the doctrines of over 1,000 corporate religions around the world. This is a humbling rational. It is logical and reasonable.

All you need to know for our purposes is that ALL LAW in this temporal realm of persons is based on the cannons, ecclesiastics, and Biblical scriptures, and is literally owned and copyrighted statute by the BAR and by the Vatican.. This, my friend, only a fool would deny due to evidential reality. Thus, the only way to step out from the power of a bunch of megalomaniacs who believe they rule under God’s name is to deny that authority by claiming a higher power than those men who claim to act in God’s name – which is indeed recognized in court. The teachings of Jesus Christ in the Bible and in the lost books of scripture have nothing to do with doctrinal corporate religion. They are guidelines to live without government and without congregational religion. Once you comprehend this, everything changes, and you suddenly realize that the organized corporate churches of all denominations are actually all standing against or anti-Christ… against Christ’s teachings.

Ultimately, if you do not comprehend this, that the source of authority in law is “God”, and if you refuse to legally acknowledge this fact, then literally by legal default you will remain forcibly ruled under and in the name of those who claim to rule in God’s name. It’s a delicious irony to be sure. And trust me when I say I only truly discovered this for myself within the last year and after many years of searching for this only remedy – for eventually all research and the quest for knowledge leads to this point. Perhaps most important to you is that your “opinion” about this whole religion thing was certainly taught to you as opposed to being gained by actual study and personal learning and enlightenment, and that there is a gigantic effort to hide what I am telling you now as there has always been in history. Your philosophy, as was mine, is likely that of the Illuminati “New Age” and Theosophist movements that I never realized had taken over everything mainstream, from music to media to religion, and is as was mine not your own. Not in a million years did I ever think I’d support “Christianity”, but now I understand everything else is there to entrap and enslave the mind. If you read just a few lines of the red letters of the Bible and apply those words to that of the legal language, you’ll quickly see that the character of Jesus did nothing but teach the natural law through allegory and was indeed the original non-pacifist outlaw.

All I can say is, once you see this, and you realize it has nothing to do with doctrinal religion, everything changes and you’ll never look back. You realize “God” is not mentioned as often as you think in the Bible, and that God is used just like the “Big Bang Theory” is used in science to explain the creation of the world and universe in the Genesis of the Bible. Other references to god and lord refer to the lord-god (man ruling as god, pope, king), that sin is against government (god), and that most of the concepts and words of the Bible are actually legal terms dealing with the landlord of man. It changes your whole perspective, and you begin to understand why this is the true gnostic knowledge.

One other note… the Catholic and other churches have been killing true “Christians” (free people) for centuries, and is vehemently opposed to this true nature and understanding. The church is anti-Christ’s teachings, which should be enough reason for anyone to look and see what it was that Christ actually spoke as the natural law to oppose the church. Only you can learn the truth by studying the words of Christ.

Rahm Emanuel: Once Chief Of Liars, Now Mayor Of Lies


In 2012, the Chicago Sun Times reported:

City of Chicago’s cash cushion plummets,
debt triples, arrests drop, water use rises

July 26, 2013

“Mayor Rahm Emanuel closed the books on 2012 with $33.4 million in unallocated cash on hand — down from $167 million the year before — while adding to the mountain of debt piled on Chicago taxpayers, year-end audits show.

Last week, Moody’s Investors ordered an unprecedented triple-drop in the city’s bond rating, citing Chicago’s “very large and growing” pension liabilities, “significant” debt service payments, “unrelenting public safety demands” and historic reluctance to raise local taxes that has continued under Emanuel.

The 2012 city audits explain why. They show that an unallocated balance that was $167 million a year ago because of Emanuel’s aggressive cost-cutting efforts has dropped to $33.4 million.

Budget Director Alex Holt blamed the $133.6 million drop on “honest” budgeting and ending the long-standing practice of carrying “ghost” vacancies.

We’re trying to be more transparent about what we’re really spending and taking in — not just carrying a bunch of people who took up money in the budget and left money on the table at the end of the year,” Holt said.”

(Source: http://www.suntimes.com/news/elections/21552920-505/city-by-the-numbers-cash-cushion-plummets-debt-triples-arrests-drop-water-use-rises.html)

–=–

It really wouldn’t be very hard to be completely transparent to the people of Chicago about what the government is “spending and taking in”. All they would have to do is just mention and explain what is written with the “audits” of the City, which are not named in this obfuscating media report. Those audits are federally required of all municipal corporations within the United States, and are officially called the Comprehensive Annual Financial Report (CAFR).

The only problem is… the CAFR also reveals how much the City of Chicago is saving and hiding from the public and from its own budget report in the form of massive investments. I also shows things most people would never believe are happening in America – that is, besides the fact that an Israeli solder and duel-citizen is acting as Mayor of one of the largest cities in America.

Instead, they use the fallacy of “honest budgeting”.

Now, anyone who knows what a budget report is can likely agree that a budget is not honest, but is in reality an educated guess on future operational expenses, income, and expenditures. In the majority of cases involving corporations, the person or persons doing the budgeting is generally seeking new and creative ways to justify more budget allowances for their corporation or department thereof. In the case of local municipal corporation governments, these creative accounting tricks are implemented on the budget report to justify more taxpayer dollars to be collected in the next fiscal year (or more taxpayer debt to be created through bonds) by ignoring what is reported in the actual audit report, called the CAFR. In short, the “budget report” is created by taking the Comprehensive Annual Financial Report (the audited financial statements of government), grabbing a black magic marker, and placing black marks over the long-term assets and investments of government accumulated for the years, decades, or centuries that the government has been municipally incorporated.

The budget report is what is created after all of the creative accounting and word magic have virtually pillaged the CAFR of all its investment wealth. And the “honest budget” is thus presented to the people as a declaration of distress, debt, and in some cases bankruptcy.

Here is the link for the 2011-2012 fiscal year Comprehensive Annual Financial Report for the City of Chicago:

Link–> http://www.cityofchicago.org/city/en/depts/fin/supp_info/comprehensive_annualfinancialstatements.html

Let’s examine how the Rahm Emanuel and his bureaucracy are using the hand-crafted and creatively accounted budget report to literally hide billions and billions of dollars from the public…

BUREAUCRAT. An official who works by fixed routine without exercising intelligent judgment. –Random House Dictionary

BUREAUCRACY. The abuse of official influence in the affairs of government; corruption… those persons who are employed in bureaus (and) abuse their authority by intrigue to promote their own benefit, or that of friends, rather than the public good. –Bouvier’s Law Dictionary, 1856

–=–

A good place to start is in the “Notes To Financial Statements” section, which is a more advanced description of the creative accounting principles and strategies utilized to hide all of Chicago’s wealth as reported in the budget report.

(Page 92) The 2012 Fiscal Year CAFR here explains not only how the government hides its massive stores of wealth, but also how it is privatizing much of its infrastructure by entering into Public Private Partnerships through long-term lease agreements with Banks and other private corporations:

(Note 16) Concession Agreements

The major fund entitled Service Concession and Reserve Fund is used for the purpose of accounting for the deferred inflows associated with governmental fund long-term lease and concession transactions. Deferred inflows are amortized over the life of the related lease and concession agreements. Proceeds from these transactions may be transferred from this fund in accordance with ordinances approved by City Council that define the use of proceeds.

Translation: City of Chicago enters into lease agreements with private corporations, accepts massive lump sum payments in the billions or millions of dollars from that private corporation, and then allows that private corporation to run that infrastructure asset of government for a set amount of years. The private corporation may then raise the fees attached to that infrastructure and earn triple the income over the decades allotted by the lease agreement. And the City thus looses out on future revenue that goes to private corporations. And this, as we are about to see, is why parking is so expensive in Chicago.

Continuing on Page 92 of the CAFR:

In February 2009, the City completed a $1.15 billion concession agreement to allow a private operator to manage and collect revenues from the City’s metered parking system for 75 years. The City received an upfront payment of $1.15 billion which was recognized as a deferred inflow that will be amortized and recognized as revenue over the term of the agreement. The City recognizes $15.3 million of revenue for each year through 2083.

In December 2006, the City completed a long-term concession and lease of the City’s downtown underground public parking system. The concession granted a private company the right to operate the garages and collect parking and related revenues for the 99-year term of the agreement. The City received an upfront payment of $563.0 million of which $347.8 million was simultaneously used to purchase three of the underground garages from the Chicago Park District. The City recognized a deferred inflow that will be amortized and recognized as revenue over the term of the lease. The City recognizes $5.7 million of revenue for each year through 2105.

In January 2005, the City completed a long-term concession and lease of the Skyway. The concession granted a private company the right to operate the Skyway and to collect toll revenue from the Skyway for the 99-year term of the agreement. The City received an upfront payment of $1.83 billion; a portion of the payment ($446.3 million) advance refunded all of the outstanding Skyway bonds. The City recognized a deferred inflow of $1.83 billion that will be amortized and recognized as revenue over the 99-year term of the agreement. The City recognizes $18.5 million of revenue related to this transaction for each year through 2103. Skyway land, bridges, other facilities and equipment continue to be reported on the Statement of Net Position and will be depreciated, as applicable, over their useful lives. The deferred inflow of the Skyway is reported in the Proprietary Funds Statement of Net Position.

To the people of Chicago, I suggest you read that again. And again…

Did you notice that the City of Chicago government purchased infrastructure from itself, by buying garages from Chicago Park District? In this way, it created what it loves best – a self-perpetuated debt.

The Chicago Park District website states:

“In 1959, the system expanded again, when the City of Chicago transferred more than 250 parks, playlots, natatoriums, and beaches to the Chicago Park District. Now the steward of 8,000+ acres of open space, totaling more than 570 parks, 31 beaches, 50 nature areas, and 2 world-class conservatories and host of thousands of special events, cultural, nature, sports and recreational programs, the Chicago Park District remains the nation’s leading provider of green space and recreation.”

Don’t confuse the park district as not a part of the City government. Instead of creating a debt by purchasing the parking garages, the City could have simply transferred them over to itself like it transferred so many parks and beaches in the past. But again, government loves to be in debt to itself, because that means it can hide its assets by claiming the assets must pay for the imaginary debt that it owes itself.

Here’s how the above concession and lease agreement scam works:

Step 1) Taxpayers pay taxes to build a public infrastructure project, in this case parking garages and meters.

Step 2) Government on behalf of taxpayers privatizes the operation of the infrastructure without actually selling the physical public property. A private corporation, often companies like J P Morgan Chase, will then operate and collect fees or the life of the lease agreement, and are allowed by the government to set the prices themselves.

Step 3) Taxpayers suddenly see higher taxes in the form of fees for that public service on what they still believe to be publicly run infrastructure. They don’t comprehend what happened simply because NO TAXPAYER APPROVAL IS NEEDED for this long-term lease and concession to take place. Why is no taxpayer vote needed? Because the City is acquiring future revenues on what would have been charged for that taxpayer infrastructure in the future (up to 99 years in the future). So its as if the City is still pretending to run the parking garage and meters by only allowing itself to collect the projected revenues each year while the Billions and billions of dollars it already collected get put into investment funds unavailable for taxpayer services. Taxpayers are left out of the whole process, except for paying the fees to a private corporation.

Step 4) Over the life of the lease agreement (for up to 99 years), a private corporation will collect 200-2,000% more tax revenue (fees) than it originally paid the City to acquire it. It will raise prices dramatically over that time to rake in incredible and guaranteed profits by law.

Step 5) The City sits on billions of dollars (which it does not report as an asset in the budget report, only in the CAFR) and invests it over that 99 year lease. And the profits and gains from those investments never really help the taxpayer or go to taxpayer services in any way, shape, or form. Often, the city loans out those billions to other municipalities or private corporations.

Step 6) With the money invested and gaining a return on investment, the City requires that those billions remain in an investment fund, not be touched for any other reason than to once a year make an allotment as a yearly payment to itself. And the taxpayers see income from the parking garage and never comprehend the organized crime that is taking place under their noses.

Step 7) The City, over that up to 99-year time period, will continuously claim that it is broke, simply because the billions and billions mentioned above are not included as assets on the budget report. This justifies requirements for new taxation from the already pillaged public, and very likely will be used as an excuse to declare bankruptcy – all because the money remains hidden from the taxpayer budget report. And guess what? The taxpayers will likely still pay the bills for maintenance upkeep and improvements on those privately run parking structures through their general taxes.

Now, does this sound like “honest” budgeting to you?

So in these three organized criminal enterprises alone, we have just honestly uncovered the fact that the City is hiding $3.54 billion from the taxpayer budget report Money that right now, today, could be used to pay off much of the City’s long-term debt or used for taxpayer services. Or hell, it could be given back to those corrupt private corporations so that the people aren’t beholden to the will and whims of private corporations.

There’s one more thing on the next page that Chicago taxpayers should be aware of:

The 1996 Reauthorization Act, Title 49 United States Code §47134, authorized the Federal Aviation Administration (“FAA”) to establish the Airport Privatization Pilot Program (the “Pilot Program”), pursuant to which the FAA is authorized to permit public airport sponsors to sell or lease an airport. The 2012 Reauthorization Act increased the number of airports that could participate in the program from five to ten. Only one of the ten airports can be a “large hub” airport (having enplanements that equal or exceed one percent of the enplanements at all U.S. commercial airports). On September 2006, the City applied to the FAA under the Pilot Program with respect to Chicago Midway International Airport (“Midway”) with extensions requested periodically and most recently in April 2012. The City is currently pursuing bids for a lease of Midway under the provisions of the Pilot Program. The City is not under any obligation to accept any bids, and it is not possible at this time to predict whether or not the City will enter into a lease of Midway pursuant to the Pilot Program or when such a transaction might occur.

Again, the citizens and voters of Chicago will not be consulted here. No vote will be necessary. Sorry folks. You are out of the political loop now. The country is being privatized.

I wonder how many billions an airport will go for?

Imagine how invasive and tyrannical those unconstitutional searches and pat-downs are going to be when the airports are run by private corporations…

Unless you frightened subjects actually grow a pair and stop this from happening!

–=–

But I digress, for we are only scratching the surface here Chicago.

Let’s take a look at how municipal corporations around the country use the same financial accounting trick to hide their true financial position, including all investment funds, by magically erasing all of their wealth from the budget report.

Remember, the CAFR is created first, and only then is the budget created from what is leftover after all of the clever and creative accounting has already been done within the true CAFR audit.

(Page 31) Here we find the basic financial statements, listing assets, liabilities, and the net balance.

CITY OF CHICAGO, ILLINOIS STATEMENT OF NET POSITION

ASSETS AND DEFERRED OUTFLOWS

Total assets are listed at $31,095,607,000

$20 billion of that is listed as “Capital Assets” such as buildings, machinery, vehicles, etc.

Just over $10 billion is listed as other assets, including investments of about $7 billion.

As we pour over these basic line items, we see nothing but what is called “current assets” – the cash, investments, and other assets that the City of Chicago had on hand as of December 31, 2012.

But now we need to look at the liabilities section in order to see where that creative magic accounting happens…

LIABILITIES AND DEFERRED INFLOWS

We see here only about $3 or $4 billion in actual liabilities for the current fiscal year, including what is called “due within one year” on the City’s “long-term liabilities”. This is the normal operating expenses for the City in the average fiscal year.

But that’s were the honest budgeting ends. And here is where we find the bulk of the assets hidden within Chicago City’s investment funds…

Due in More Than One Year ……………… $28,354,779,000

Remember, in our assets section we see no reporting of any projected or future assets.

Yet in the liabilities section we see a line item representing all future liabilities in the form of amortized payments on bonds, loans, and other debt. And these future liabilities, in the end, effect the current assets as reported to the taxpayer on the budget report.

At the end of this chart of net position, we see how incredibly corrupt this little trick is:

NET POSITION (including in/out-flows)

Total Assets…………………… $31,095,607,000

Total Liabilities………………. $34,923,854,000

Total Net Position …………. $-3,828,247,000

So the City of Chicago has just magically erased over $28 billion dollars worth of cash, investment capital, and other asset wealth from the books by utilizing future amortized debt balances (that don’t yet exist in the fiscal year) against current assets. There is no mention of the future tax revenues that will pay for those future liabilities. And when the Chicago municipal corporation reports their total asset balance to the fine but clueless people of the City of Chicago, a 28 billion dollar lie will have been sponsored by none other than Mayor Rahm Emanuel himself… and for that matter every mayor across the United States.

Now then, what was that bunch of lies the Chicago Sun Times quoted Rahm Emanuel and his financial minions from?

“Mayor Rahm Emanuel closed the books on 2012 with $33.4 million in unallocated cash on hand — down from $167 million the year before — while adding to the mountain of debt piled on Chicago taxpayers, year-end audits show…

The 2012 city audits explain why. They show that an unallocated balance that was $167 million a year ago because of Emanuel’s aggressive cost-cutting efforts has dropped to $33.4 million.

Budget Director Alex Holt blamed the $133.6 million drop on “honest” budgeting…”

We’re trying to be more transparent about what we’re really spending and taking in…”

How quaint. They are talking to the dumbed-down people in financial terms of millions while they play and invest behind our backs with BILLIONS!!!

This cursory look into the financial situation of Chicago has been very basic indeed. The CAFR is rich with multiple creative accounting schemes and best practices that are all approved by the private, non-governmental association (Government Financial Officers Association – GFOA) that makes these little rules (Generally Accepted Accounting Principals – GAAP) that allow all governments to hide massive amounts of investment wealth from their citizens. There are doubtlessly many more treasures to find, including the true investment fund balances compared to what is reported. They have so many tricks up their sleeves.

Take a look. Read the notes. You’ll be shocked at what you find…

The only question I have, now that the people of Chicago know that tomorrow their government could be completely out of debt and on the road to permanent independence and prosperity with unlimited potential simply by paying off all its future debt with its current assets (as most city’s in America could do) is…

What in God’s name are you going to do about it?
