"All systems of government suppose they are to be administered by men of common sense and common honesty. In our country, as all ultimately depends on the voice of the people, they have it in their power, and it is to be presumed they generally will choose men of this description: but if they will not, the case, to be sure, is without remedy. If they choose fools, they will have foolish laws. If they choose knaves, they will have knavish ones. But this can never be the case until they are generally fools or knaves themselves, which, thank God, is not likely ever to become the character of the American people." [Justice Iredell] (Fries's Case (CC) F Cas No 5126, supra.)
[Ludecke v. Watkins, 335 U.S. 160; 92 L.Ed 1881, 1890; 68 S.Ct. 1429 (1948)]

We very thoroughly covered the foundations of our republican form of government earlier in chapter 4.  We showed you in section 4.1 the hierarchy of sovereignty and where you fit personally in that hierarchy.  We showed you in section 4.5 that Article 4, Section 4 of the U.S. Constitution guarantees to all Americans a “republican form of government”.  Then in section 5.1.1 we showed you the order that our state and federal governments were created and the distinct sovereignties that comprise all the elements of our republican political system.  Now we are going to tie the whole picture together and show you graphically the tools and techniques that specific covetous government servants have used over the years to corrupt and debase that system for their own personal financial and political benefit.  

"The king establishes the land by justice; but he who receives bribes overthrows it." 
[Prov. 29:4, Bible, NKJV]

After you have learned these techniques by which corruption is introduced, we will spend the rest of the chapter showing exactly how these techniques have been specifically applied over the years to corrupt and debase and destroy our political system and undermine our personal liberties, rights, and freedoms.  This will train your perception to be on the lookout for any future attempts by our covetous politicians to further corrupt our system so that you can act swiftly at a political level to oppose and prevent it.

First of all, the foundation of our republican form of government is the concept of separation of powers.  This concept is called the “Separation of Powers Doctrine”:

"Separation of powers.  The governments of the states and the United States are divided into three departments or branches: the legislative, which is empowered to make laws, the executive which is required to carry out the laws, and the judicial which is charged with interpreting the laws and adjudicating disputes under the laws.  Under this constitutional doctrine of "separation of powers," one branch is not permitted to encroach on the domain or exercise the powers of another branch.  See U.S. Constitution, Articles I-III.  See also Power (Constitutional Powers)."
[Black’s Law Dictionary, Sixth Edition, p. 1365]

Here is how no less than the U.S. Supreme Court described the purpose of this separation of powers:

"We start with first principles. The Constitution creates a Federal Government of enumerated powers. See U.S. Const., Art. I, 8. As James Madison wrote, "[t]he powers delegated by the proposed Constitution to the federal government are few and defined. Those which are to remain in the State governments are numerous and indefinite." The Federalist No. 45, pp. 292-293 (C. Rossiter ed. 1961). This constitutionally mandated division of authority "was adopted by the Framers to ensure protection of our fundamental liberties." Gregory v. Ashcroft, 501 U.S. 452, 458 (1991) (internal quotation marks omitted). "Just as the separation and independence of the coordinate branches of the Federal Government serves to prevent the accumulation of excessive power in any one branch, a healthy balance of power between the States and the Federal Government will reduce the risk of tyranny and abuse from either front." Ibid.
[U.S. v. Lopez, 514 U.S. 549 (1995)]

The founding fathers believed that men were inherently corrupt.  They believed that absolute power corrupts absolutely so they avoided concentrating too much power into any single individual.

"When all government, domestic and foreign, in little as in great things, shall be drawn to Washington as the center of all power, it will render powerless the checks provided of one government on another and will become as venal and oppressive as the government from which we separated."
[Thomas Jefferson to Charles Hammond, 1821. ME 15:332]

"Our government is now taking so steady a course as to show by what road it will pass to destruction; to wit: by consolidation first and then corruption, its necessary consequence. The engine of consolidation will be the Federal judiciary; the two other branches the corrupting and corrupted instruments."
[Thomas Jefferson to Nathaniel Macon, 1821. ME 15:341]

"The [federal] judiciary branch is the instrument which, working like gravity, without intermission, is to press us at last into one consolidated mass."
[Thomas Jefferson to Archibald Thweat, 1821. ME 15:307]

"There is no danger I apprehend so much as the consolidation of our government by the noiseless and therefore unalarming instrumentality of the Supreme Court."
[Thomas Jefferson to William Johnson, 1823. ME 15:421]

"I wish... to see maintained that wholesome distribution of powers established by the Constitution for the limitation of both [the State and General governments], and never to see all offices transferred to Washington where, further withdrawn from the eyes of the people, they may more secretly be bought and sold as at market."
[Thomas Jefferson to William Johnson, 1823. ME 15:450]

"What an augmentation of the field for jobbing, speculating, plundering, office-building and office-hunting would be produced by an assumption of all the State powers into the hands of the General Government!"
[Thomas Jefferson to Gideon Granger, 1800. ME 10:168]

"I see,... and with the deepest affliction, the rapid strides with which the federal branch of our government is advancing towards the usurpation of all the rights reserved to the States, and the consolidation in itself of all powers, foreign and domestic; and that, too, by constructions which, if legitimate, leave no limits to their power... It is but too evident that the three ruling branches of [the Federal government] are in combination to strip their colleagues, the State authorities, of the powers reserved by them, and to exercise themselves all functions foreign and domestic."
[Thomas Jefferson to William Branch Giles, 1825. ME 16:146]

"We already see the [judiciary] power, installed for life, responsible to no authority (for impeachment is not even a scare-crow), advancing with a noiseless and steady pace to the great object of consolidation. The foundations are already deeply laid by their decisions for the annihilation of constitutional State rights and the removal of every check, every counterpoise to the engulfing power of which themselves are to make a sovereign part."
[Thomas Jefferson to William T. Barry, 1822. ME 15:388]

They instead wanted an egalitarian and utopian society.  They loathed the idea of a king because they had seen how corrupt the monarchies of Europe had become by reading the history books.  They loathed it so much that they specifically prohibited titles of nobility in Article 1, Section 9, Clause 8:

U.S. Constitution; Article 1, Section 9, Clause 8

No Title of Nobility shall be granted by the United States: And no Person holding any Office of Profit or Trust under them, shall, without the Consent of the Congress, accept of any present, Emolument, Office, or Title, of any kind whatever, from any King, Prince or foreign State.

So the founders instead distributed and dispersed political power into several independent branches of government that have sovereign power over a finite sphere and prohibited the branches from assuming each others duties.  This, they believed, would prevent collusion against their rights and liberties.  They therefore divided the government into the Executive, Legislative, and Judicial branches and made them independent of each other, and assigned very specific duties to each.  In effect, these three branches became “foreign” to each other and in constant competition with each other for power and control.

The founders further dispersed political power by dividing power between the several states and the federal government and gave most of the power to the states.  They gave each state their own seats in Congress, in the Senate.  They made the states just like “foreign countries” and independent nations so that there would be the greatest separation of powers possible between the federal government and the states:

"The States between each other are sovereign and independent.  They are distinct and separate sovereignties, except so far as they have parted with some of the attributes of sovereignty by the Constitution.  They continue to be nations, with all their rights, and under all their national obligations, and with all the rights of nations in every particular; except in the surrender by each to the common purposes and objects of the Union, under the Constitution.  The rights of each State, when not so yielded up, remain absolute."
[Bank of Augusta v. Earle, 38 U.S. (13 Pet.) 519; 10 L.Ed. 274 (1839)]

Then the founders created multiple states so that the states would be in competition with each other for citizens and for commerce.  When one state got too oppressive or taxed people too much, the people could then move to an economically more attractive state and climate.  This kept the states from oppressing their citizens and it gave the people a means to keep their state and their government in check.  Then they put the federal government in charge of regulating commerce among and between the states, and the intention of this was to maximize, not obstruct, commerce between the states so that we would act as a unified economic union and like a country.  Even so, they didn’t want our country to be a “nation” under the law of nations, because they didn’t want a national government with unlimited powers.  They wanted a “federation”, so they called our central government the “federal government” instead of a “national government”.  To give us a “national government” would be a recipe for tyranny:

“By that law the several States and Governments spread over our globe, are considered as forming a society, not a NATION. It has only been by a very few comprehensive minds, such as those of Elizabeth and the Fourth Henry, that this last great idea has been even contemplated. 3rdly. and chiefly, I shall examine the important question before us, by the Constitution of the United States, and the legitimate result of that valuable instrument. “
[Chisholm v. Georgia, 2 Dall. (U.S.) 419, 1 L.Ed. 440 (1794)]

The ingenious founders also made the people the sovereigns in charge of both the state and federal governments by giving them a Bill of Rights and mandating frequent elections.  Frequent elections:

  1. Ensured that rulers would not be in office long enough to learn enough to get sneaky with the people or abuse their power.
  2. Kept the rulers accountable to the people and provided a prompt feedback mechanism to make sure politicians and rulers were incentivized to listen to the people.
  3. Created a stable political system that would automatically converge onto the will of the majority so that the country would be at peace instead of at war within itself.

The founders even gave the people their own house in Congress called the House of Representatives, so that the power between the states, in the Senate, and the People, in the House, would be well-balanced.  They also made sure that these sovereign electors and citizens were well armed with a good education, so they could keep their government in check and capably defend their freedom, property, and liberty by themselves.  When things got rough and governments became corrupt, these rugged and self-sufficient citizens were also guaranteed the right to defend their property using arms that the U.S. Constitution said in the Second Amendment that they had a right to keep and use.  This ensured that citizens wouldn’t need to depend on the government for a handout or socialist benefits and wouldn’t have to worry about having a government that would plunder their property or their liberty.

Finally, the founding fathers created the institution of trial by jury, so that if government got totally corrupt and passed unjust laws that violated God’s laws, the people could put themselves back in control through jury nullification.  This also effectively dealt with the problem of corrupt judges, because both the jury and the grand jury could override the judge as well when they detected a conflict of interest by judging both the facts and the law.  Here is how Thomas Jefferson described the duty of the jury in such a circumstance:

"It is left... to the juries, if they think the permanent judges are under any bias whatever in any cause, to take on themselves to judge the law as well as the fact. They never exercise this power but when they suspect partiality in the judges; and by the exercise of this power they have been the firmest bulwarks of English liberty."
[Thomas Jefferson to Abbe Arnoux, 1789. ME 7:423, Papers 15:283]

The design that our founding fathers had for our political system was elegant, unique, unprecedented, ingenious, perfectly balanced, and inherently just.  It was founded on the concept of PDF Natural Order and Natural Law, which as we explained in section 4.1 are based on the sequence that things were created.  This concept made sense, even to people who didn’t believe in God, so it had wide support among a very diverse country of immigrants from all over the world and of many different religious faiths.  Natural Law and PDF Natural Order unified our country because it was just and fair and righteous.  That is the basis for the phrase on our currency, which says:

“E Pluribus Unum”

…which means:  “From many, one.”  Our system of Natural Law and PDF Natural Order also happened to be based on God’s sovereign design for self-government, as we explained throughout chapter 4.  The founders also recognized that liberty without God and morality are impossible:

"We have no government armed with the power capable of contending with human passions unbridled by morality and religion. Avarice [greed], ambition, revenge, or gallantry [debauchery], would break the strongest cords of our Constitution as a whale goes through a net. Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other."
[John Adams, 2nd President]

So the founders included the requirement for BOTH God and Liberty on all of our currency.  They put the phrase “In God We Trust” and the phrase “Liberty” side by side, and they were probably thinking of the following scripture when they did that!:

“Now the Lord is the Spirit; and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty.” 
[2 Cor. 3:17, Bible, NKJV]

By creating such distinct separation of powers among all the forces of government, the founders ensured that the only way anything would get done within government was exclusively by informed consent and not by force or terror.   The Declaration of Independence identifies the source of ALL "just" government power as "consent".  Anything not consensual is therefore unjust and tyrannical.  An informed and sovereign People will only do things voluntarily and consensually when it is in their absolute best interests.  This would ensure that government would never engage in anything that wasn't in the best interests of everyone as a whole, because people, at least theoretically, would never consent to anything that would either hurt them or injure their Constitutional rights.  The Supreme Court described this kind of government by consent as "government by compact":

“In Europe, the executive is synonymous with the sovereign power of a state…where it is too commonly acquired by force or fraud, or both…In America, however the case is widely different.  Our government is founded upon compact [consent expressed in a written contract called a Constitution or in positive law].  Sovereignty was, and is, in the people.” 
[Glass v. The Sloop Betsy, 3 (U.S.) Dall 6]

Here is the legal definition of “compact” to prove our point that the Constitution and all federal law written in furtherance of it are indeed a “compact”:

Compact, n. An agreement or contract between persons, nations, or states.  Commonly applied to working agreements between and among states concerning matters of mutual concern.  A contract between parties, which creates obligations and rights capable of being enforced and contemplated as such between the parties, in their distinct and independent characters.  A mutual consent of parties concerned respecting some property or right that is the object of the stipulation, or something that is to be done or forborne.  See also Compact clause; Confederacy; Interstate compact; Treaty.” 
[Black’s Law Dictionary, Sixth Edition, p. 281]

Enacting a mutual agreement into positive law then, becomes the vehicle for expressing the fact that the People collectively agreed and consented to the law and to accept any adverse impact that law might have on their liberty.  Public servants then, are just the apparatus that the sovereign People use for governing themselves through the operation of positive law.  As the definition above shows, the apparatus and machinery of government is simply the “rudder” that steers the ship, but the "Captain" of the ship is the People both individually and collectively.  In a true Republican Form of Government, the REAL government is the people individually and collectively, and not their "public servants".  That is the true meaning of the phrase "a government of the people, by the people, and for the people" used by Abraham LIncoln in the Gettysburg Address.

Our de jure Constitutional Republic started out as a perfectly balanced and just system indeed.  But somewhere along the way, it was deliberately corrupted by evil men for personal gain.  Just like Cain (in the Bible) destroyed the tranquility and peace of an idyllic world and divided the family of Adam by first introducing murder into the world, greedy politicians who wanted to line their pockets corrupted our wonderful system and brought evil into the government.  How did it happen?  They did it with a combination of force, fraud, and the corrupting influence of money.  This process can be shown graphically and described in scientific terms over a period of years to show precisely how it was done.  We will now attempt to do this so that the process is crystal clear in your mind.  What we are trying to show are the following elements in our diagram:

1.  The distinct sovereignties between governments:

1.1.  States

1.2.  The federal government

2.  The sovereignties within governments:

2.1.  Executive branch

2.2.  Legislative branch

2.3.  Judicial branch

3.  The hierarchy of sovereignty between all the sovereignties based on their sequence of creation.

4.  The corrupting influence of force, fraud, and money, including the branch that initiated it, the date it was initiated, and the object it was initiated against.

To meet the above objectives, we will start off with the diagram found in section 5.1.1 and expand it with some of the added elements found in the PDF Natural Order diagram found earlier in section 4.1.    To the bottom of the diagram, we add the Ten Commandments, which establishes the “Separation of Church v. State”.  The first four commandments in Exodus 20:2-11 establish the church and the last six commandments found in Exodus 20:12-17 define how we should relate to other people, who Jesus later called our “neighbor” in Matt. 22:39. The main and only purpose of government is to love and protect and serve its inhabitants and citizens, who collectively are "neighbors".  What results is a schematic diagram of the initial political system that the founders gave us absent all corruption.   This is called the “De jure U.S. Government”.  It is the only lawful government we have and its organization is defined by our Constitution.  It's organization is also defined by the Bible, which we also call "Natural Law" throughout this document.

How Scoundrels Corrupted 4

Each box in the above diagram represents a sovereignty or sovereign entity that helps distribute power throughout our system of government to prevent corruption or tyranny.  The arrows with dark ends indicate an act of creation by the sovereign above.  That act of creation carries with it an implied delegation of authority to do specific tasks and establishes a fiduciary relationship between the creator, and his subordinate creation.  The above system as shown functions properly and fully and provides the best defense for our liberties only when there is complete separation between each sovereignty, which is to say that all actions performed and all choices made by any one sovereign:

  1. Are completely free of fraud, force, conflict of interest, or duress.
  2. Are accomplished completely voluntarily, which is to say that they are done for the mutual benefit of all parties involved rather than any one single party exercising undue influence.
  3. Involve fully informed consent made with a full awareness by all parties to the agreement of all rights which are being surrendered to procure any benefits acquired.
  4. Are done mainly or exclusively for the benefit of the sovereign above the agent who is the actor.
  5. Are done for righteous reasons and noble intent, meaning that they are accomplished for the benefit of someone else rather than one’s own personal or financial benefit.  This requirement is the foundation of what a fiduciary relationship means and also the only way that conflicts of interest and the corruption they can cause can be eliminated.

With the above in mind, we will now add all of the corrupting influences accomplished to our system of government over the years.  These are shown with dashed lines representing the application of unlawful or immoral force or fraud.  The hollow end of each line indicates the sovereign against which the force or fraud is applied.  The number above or next to the dotted line indicates the item in the table that follows the diagram which explains each incidence of force or fraud.

After the civil war, the 14th Amendment was passed in 1868.  That amendment along with "words of art" were used as a means to deceive constitutional citizens to falsely believe that they were also privileged statutory "U.S. citizens" pursuant to 8 U.S.C. 1401, and thus to unconstitutionally extent federal jurisdiction and enforce federal franchises within states of the Union.   The citizenship status described in that amendment was only supposed to apply to emancipated slaves but the federal government in concert with the states confused the law and the interpretation of the law enough that everyone thought they were statutory federal citizens rather than the “non-citizen nationals” immune from federal jurisdiction, which is foreign with respect to states of the Union.  This put Americans in the states in a privileged federal status and put them under the jurisdiction of the federal government.   At the point that Americans voluntarily and unknowingly accept privileged federal citizenship, they lose their sovereignty and go to the bottom of the sovereignty hierarchy.  State courts and state legislatures cooperated in this conspiracy against rights by requiring electors and jurists to be presumed statutory “U.S. citizens” in order to serve.  At the same time, they didn’t define the term “U.S. citizen” in their election laws or voter registration, creating a “presumption” in favor of people believing that they are statutory “citizens of the United States”, even though technically they are not.

18 U.S.C. 219 (government employees acting as agents of foreign principals-Federal Reserve)

Around the turn of the century, the guilded age created a lot of very wealthy people and big corporations.  The corrupting influence of the money they had lead them to dominate the U.S. senate and the Republican party., which was the majority party at the time  The people became restless because they were paying most of the taxes indirectly via tariffs on imported goods while the big corporations were paying very little.  This lead to a vote by Congress to send the new Sixteenth Amendment to the states for ratification.  Corporations heavily influenced this legislation so that it would favor taxing individuals instead of corporations, which lead the Republicans in the Senate to word the Amendment ambiguously so that it could or would be misconstrued to apply to natural persons instead of the corporations it was really intended to apply to by the American people.  This created much subsequent litigation and confusion on the part of the Average American about exactly what the taxing powers of Congress are, and gave Congressman a lot of wiggle room to misrepresent the purpose of the Sixteenth Amendment to their constituents.  Today, Congressmen use the ambiguity of the Amendment to regularly lie to their Constituents by saying that the “Sixteenth Amendment” authorizes Congress to tax the income of every American.  This is an absolute lie and is completely inconsistent with the rulings of the U.S. Supreme Court.  Courts below the Supreme Court have also used the same ambiguity mechanism to expand the operation of the income tax beyond its clearly limited application to the federal zone.  During the same year as the Sixteenth Amendment was ratified, in 1913, the Congress also passed the Federal Reserve Act immediately after the Sixteenth Amendment.  By doing this, they surrendered their control over the money system to a consortium of private banks.  The Sixteenth Amendment was passed first in February of 1913 because it was the lender-security for the Non-Federal Reserve that would be needed to create a “credit line” and collateral.  The Federal Reserve Act was passed in December of that same year.  At that point, the Congress had an unlimited private credit line from commercial banks and a means to print as much money as they wanted in order to fund socialist expansion of the government.  But remember that the bible says:

“The rich ruleth over the poor, and the borrower [is] servant to the lender.”
[Prov. 22:7]

28 U.S.C. 144 (conflict of interest of federal judges)

28 U.S.C. 455 (conflict of interest of federal judges)

In 1911, the U.S. Congress passed the Judicial Code of 1911 and thereby made all District and Circuit courts into entirely administrative courts which had jurisdiction over only the federal zone.  All the federal courts except the U.S. Supreme Court changed character from being Article III courts to Article IV territorial courts only.  All the district courts were renamed from “District Court of the United States” to “United States District Court”.  The Supreme Court said in Balzac v. Porto Rico, 258 U.S. 298 (1922)  that the “United States District Court” is an Article IV territorial court, not an Article III constitutional court.  Consequently, all the federal courts excepting the Supreme Court became administrative courts that were part of the Executive rather than the Judicial Branch of the government and all the judges became Executive Branch employees.  See our article “Authorities on Jurisdiction of Federal Courts” for further details.

 The Revenue Act of 1932 than tried to apply income taxes against federal judges.  The purpose was to put them under complete control of the Executive Branch through terrorism and extortion by the IRS.  This was litigated by the Supreme Court in 1932 in the case of O’Malley v. Woodrough, 309 U.S. 277 (1939) just before the war started.  The court ruled that the Executive Branch couldn’t unilaterally modify the terms of their employment contracts, so they rewrote the tax law to go around it subsequent to that by only taxing NEW federal judges and leaving the existing ones alone so as not to violate the Constitutional prohibition against reducing judges salaries.  Since that time, federal judges have been beholden to the greed and malice of the Legislative branch because they are under IRS control.  This occurred at a time when we had a very popular socialist President who threatened the Supreme Court if they didn’t go along with his plan to replace capitalism with socialism, starting with Social Security.  President Roosevelt tried to retire all the U.S. Supreme Court justices and then double the size of the court and pack the court with all of his own socialist cronies in a famous coup called “The Roosevelt Supreme Court Packing Plan”.

Separation of powers Doctrine

Right after the Supreme Court case of O’Malley v. Woodrough in 1939, the U.S. Congress wasted no time in passing a new Revenue Act that skirted the findings of the Supreme Court’s that declared income taxes levied against them to be unconstitutional.  In effect, they made the payment of income taxes by federal judges an implied part of their employment agreement as “appointed officers” of the United States government in receipt of federal privileges.  Once the judges were under control of the IRS, they could be terrorized and plundered if they did not cooperate with the enforcement of federal income taxes.  This also endowed all federal judges with an implied conflict of interest in violation of 28 U.S.C. 455 and 28 U.S.C. 144

The Revenue Act of 1939 passed by the U.S. Congress instituted a very oppressive income tax to fund the upcoming World War II effort.  It was called the “Victory Tax” and it was a voluntary withholding effort, but after the war and after people on a large scale got used to sending their money to Washington, D.C. every month through payroll withholding, the politicians cleverly decided not to tell them the truth that it was voluntary.  The politicians then began rewriting the tax laws to further confuse and deceive people and hide the truth about the voluntary nature of the income tax.  This included the Internal Revenue Codes of 1954 and 1986, which were major updates of the IRC that further hid the truth from the legal profession and added so much complexity to the tax laws that no one even understands them anymore.

18 U.S.C. 1957 (Engaging in monetary transactions in property derived from specified unlawful activity)

Federal government uses income tax revenues after World War II to begin socialist subsidies, starting with Lyndon Johnson’s “Great Society” plan.  Instead of paying off the war debt and ending the income tax like we did after the Civil war in 1872, the government adopted socialism and borrowed itself into a deep hole, following the illustrious example of Franklin Roosevelt’s “New Deal” program.  This socialist expansion was facilitated by the enactment of the Federal Reserve Act of 1913, which gave the government unlimited borrowing power.  The income tax, however, had to continue because it was the “lender security” for the PRIVATE Federal Reserve banking trust that was creating all this debt and fake money.  The income tax had the effect of making all Americans into surety for government debts they never authorized.  The Civil Rights movement of the 1960’s accelerated the growth of the socialist cancer to cause voters to abuse their power to elect politicians who would subsidize and expand the welfare-state concept.

Democracy has never been and never can be so desirable as aristocracy or monarchy, but while it lasts, is more bloody than either. Remember, democracy never lasts long. It soon wastes, exhausts, and murders itself. There never was a democracy that never did commit suicide."
[John Adams, 1815]

Trial jury

18 U.S.C. 2111 (robbery)

Trial juries filled with people receiving government socialist handouts (money STOLEN from hard-working Americans) vote against tax protesters to illegally enforce the income tax laws, and especially in the case of the wealthy.  Trial by jury becomes MOB RULE and a means to mug and rob the  producers of society.  The jurists are also under duress by the judge, who does not allow evidence to be admitted that would be prejudicial to government (or his retirement check) and who makes cases unpublished where the government lost on income tax issues.  Because these same jurists were also educated in public schools, they are easily lead like sheep to do the government’s dirty work of plundering their fellow citizens by upholding a tax that is actually voluntary.  The result is slavery of wage earners and the rich to the IRS.  The war of the “have-nots” and the “haves” using the taxing authority of the government continues on and expands.

8 1960-Present

Federal government

18 U.S.C. 873 (blackmail)

The federal government begins using income tax revenues and socialist welfare programs to manipulate the states.  For instance:

1.  They made it mandatory for states to require people getting drivers licenses to provide a Socialist Security Number or their welfare subsidies would be cut off. 

2.  They encourage states to require voters and jurists to be “U.S. citizens” in order to serve these functions so that they would also be put under federal jurisdiction. 

3.  They mandate that all persons receiving welfare benefits or unemployment benefits that include federal subsidies to have Socialist Security Numbers.

IRS abuses its power to manipulate and silence churches that speak out about government abuses or are politically active.  This has the effect of making the churches politically irrelevant forces in our society so that the government would have no competition for the affections and the allegiance of the people.

Federal judicial branch

God’s laws (bible)

Federal judiciary eliminates God and prayer in the schools.  This leaves kids in a spiritual vacuum.  Drugs, sex, teenage pregnancy run rampant.  Families begin breaking apart.  God is blasphemed.  Single parents raise an increasing number of kids and these children don’t have the balance they need in the family to have proper sex roles.  Gender identity crisis and psychology problems result, causing homosexuality to run rampant.   This further accelerates the breakdown of the family because these dysfunctional kids have dysfunctional families of their own.  Because God is not in the schools, eventually the people begin to reject God as well.  This expands the power of government because when the people aren’t governed by God, they are ruled by tyrants and become peasants and serfs eventually.  That is how the Israelites ended up in bondage to the Egyptians: because they would not serve God or trust him for their security.  They wanted a big powerful Egyptian government to take care of them and be comfortable and safe, which was idolatry toward government.

State executive branch

18 U.S.C. 208 (acts affecting a personal financial interest)

The state executive branches abuse their power to set very high licensing requirements for home schools and private schools, backed by teacher’s unions and contributions of these unions to their political campaigns.  Licensing requirements become so high that only public schools have the capital to comply, virtually eliminating private and home schooling.  Teachers and inferior environment in public schools further contributes to bad education and liberal socialist values, further eroding sovereignty of the people and making them easy prey for sly politicians who want to enslave them with more unjust laws and expand their fiefdom.  Government continues to grow in power and rights and liberties simultaneously erode further.

After our corrupt politicians are finished socially re-engineering our system of government using the tax code and a corrupted federal judiciary, below is what happens to our original republican government system.  This is what we refer to as the “De facto U.S. Government”.  It has replaced our “De jure U.S. Government” not through operation of law, but through fraud, force, and corruption.  One of or our readers calls this new architecture for social organization “The New Civil Religion of Socialism”, where the collective will of the majority or whatever the judge says is sovereign, not God, and is the object of worship and servitude in courtrooms all over the country, who are run be devil-worshipping modern-day monarchs called “judges”.  These tyrants wear black-robes and chant in Latin and perform exorcism on hand-cuffed subjects to remove imaginary “demons” from the people that are defined by majority vote among a population of criminals (by God’s law), homosexuals, drug abusers, adulterers, and atheists.  The vilification of these demons are also legislated into existence with ”judge-made law”, which is engineered to maximize litigation and profits to the legal industry.  The legal industry, in turn, has been made into a part of the government because it is licensed and regulated by government.  This profession “worships” the judge as an idol and is comprised of golf and law school buddies and fellow members of the American Bar Association, who hobnob with the judge and do whatever he says or risk having their attorney license pulled.  In this totalitarian socialist democracy/oligarchy shown below, the people have no inalienable or God-given individual rights,, but only statutory “privileges” and franchises granted by the will of the majority that are excise taxable.  After all, when God and Truth are demoted to being a selfish creation of man and a politically correct vain fantasy, then the concept of “divine right” vanishes entirely from our political system.

How Scoundrels Corrupted 6

In the above diagram, all people in receipt of federal funds stolen through illegally collected or involuntarily paid federal income taxes effectively become federal “employees”.  They identified themselves as such when they filed their W-4 payroll withholding form, which is a contract that  says on the top “Employee Withholding Allowance Certificate”.  The Internal Revenue Code identifies “employee” to mean someone who works for the federal government in 26 U.S.C. 3401(c ).  These federal “employees” are moral and spiritual “whores” and “harlots”.  They are just like Judas or Essau…they exchanged the Truth for a lie and liberty for slavery and they did it mainly for money and personal security.  They are:

1.  So concerned about avoiding being terrorized by their government or the IRS for “making waves”.

2.  So immobilized by their own fear and ignorance that they don’t dare do anything.

3.  So addicted to sin and other unhealthy distractions that they don’t have the time to do justice.

4.  So poor that they can’t afford a expensive lawyer to be able to right the many wrongs imposed on them by a corrupted government.  Justice is a luxury that only the rich can afford in our society.

5.   So legally ignorant, thanks to our public “fool”, I mean “school” system that they aren’t able to right their wrongs on their own in court without a lawyer.

6.  So afraid of corrupt judges and lawyers who are bought and paid for with money that they stole from hardworking Americans in illegally enforcing what is actually a voluntary Subtitle A income against those who in fact and indeed can only be described per the law as “nontaxpayers”

7.  So unable to take care of their own needs because:
7.1  Most of their money has been plundered by a government unable and unwilling to control its spending.
7.2  They have allowed themselves to depend too much on government and allowed too much of their own hard-earned money to be stolen from them.
7.3  They spent everything they had and went deep in debt to buy things they didn't need.

8.  So covetous of that government welfare or socialist security or unemployment check or paycheck that comes in the mail every month.

…that they wouldn’t dare upset the apple cart or try to right the many wrongs that maintain the status quo by doing justice as a voter or jurist.  As long as they get their socialist handout and they live comfortably on the “loot” their “Parens Patriae”, or “Big Brother” sends them, they don’t care that massive injustice is occurring in courtrooms and at the IRS every day  and that they are sanctioning, aiding, and abetting that injustice as voters and jurists with a financial conflict of interest in criminal violation of 18 U.S.C. 201 and 208.  In effect, they are bribed to look the other way while their own government loots and oppresses their neighbor and then uses that loot to buy votes and influence.

“Thou shalt not steal.”
[Exodus 20:15, Bible, NKJV]

"For all the law is fulfilled in one word, even in this: “You shall love your neighbor as yourself.”
[Gal 5:14, Bible, NKJV]

Would you rob your neighbor?  No you say?  Well then, would you look the other way while someone else robs him in your name?  Government is YOUR AGENT.  If government robs your neighbor, God will hold you, not the agent who did it for you, personally responsible, because government is your agent.  God put you in charge of your government and you are the steward.  Frederic Bastiat described the nature of this horrible corruption of the system in the following book on our website:

The Law, by Frederic Bastiat
http://famguardian.org/Publications/TheLaw/TheLaw.htm

If you want to know what the above type of government is like spiritually, economically, and politically, read the first-hand accounts in the book of Judges found in the Bible.  Corruption, sin, servitude, violence, and wars characterize this notable and most ignominious period and “social experiment” as documented in the Bible.  Now do you understand why God’s law mandates that we serve ONLY Him and not be slaves of man or government?  When we don’t, the above totalitarian socialist democracy/tyranny is the result, where politicians and judges in government become the only sovereign and the people are there to bow down to and “worship” and serve an evil and corrupt government as slaves.

Below is the way God himself describes the corrupted dilemma we find ourselves in because we have abandoned the path laid by our founding fathers, as described in Isaiah 1:1-26:

Alas, sinful nation,
A people laden with iniquity
A brood of evildoers
Children who are corrupters!
They have forsaken the Lord

They have provoked to anger
The Holy One of Israel,
They have turned away backward.
Why should you be stricken again?
You will revolt more and more.
The whole head is sick [they are out of their minds!: insane or STUPID or both],
And the whole heart faints....

Wash yourselves, make yourselves clean;
Put away the evil of your doings from before My eyes.
Cease to do evil,
Learn to do good;
Seek justice,
Rebuke the oppressor [the IRS and the Federal Reserve and a corrupted judicial system];
Defend the fatherless,
Plead for the widow [and the " nontaxpayer"]....

How the faithful city has become a harlot!
It [the Constitutional Republic] was full of justice;
Righteousness lodged in it,
But now murderers [and abortionists, and socialists, and democrats, and liars and corrupted judges].
Your silver has become dross,
Your wine mixed with water.
Your princes [President, Congressmen, Judges] are rebellious,
Everyone loves bribes,
And follows after rewards.
They do not defend the fatherless,
nor does the cause of the widow [or the “nontaxpayer”] come before them.

Therefore the Lord says,
The Lord of hosts, the Mighty One of Israel,
"Ah, I will rid Myself of My adversaries,
And take vengeance on My enemies.
I will turn My hand against you,
And thoroughly purge away your dross,
And take away your alloy.
I will restore your judges [eliminate the BAD judges] as at the first,
And your counselors [eliminate the BAD lawyers] as at the beginning.
Afterward you shall be called the city of righteousness, the faithful city."
[Isaiah 1:1-26, Bible, NKJV]

So according to the Bible, the real problem is corrupted lawyers and judges and people who are after money and rewards, and God says the way to fix the corruption and graft is to eliminate the bad judges and lawyers.  Whose job is that?  It is the even more corrupted Congress! (see 28 U.S.C. 134(a) and 28 U.S.C. 44(b))

"O My people! Those who lead you cause you to err,
And destroy the way of your paths." 
[Isaiah 3:12, Bible, NKJV]

"The king establishes the land by justice; but he who receives bribes [or govenrment "benefits", if paid to voters, jurists, judges, or prosecutors] overthrows it." 
[Prov. 29:4, Bible, NKJV]

Can thieves and corrupted judges and lawyers and jurors, who are all bribed with unlawfully collected monies they lust after in the pursuit of socialist benefits, reform themselves if left to their own devices?

"When you [the jury] saw a thief [the corrupted judges and lawyers paid with extorted and stolen tax money], you consented with him, And have been a partaker with adulterers."
[Psalm 50:18, Bible, NKJV]

"The people will be oppressed,
Every one by another and every one by his [socialist] neighbor [sitting on a jury who
 was indoctrinated and brainwashed in a government school to trust government];
The child will be insolent toward the elder,
And the base toward the honorable."
[Isaiah 3:5, Bible, NKJV]

"It must be conceded that there are rights [and property] in every free government beyond the control of the State [or any judge or jury].  A government which recognized no such rights, which held the lives, liberty and property of its citizens, subject at all times to the disposition and unlimited control of even the most democratic depository of power, is after all a despotism.  It is true that it is a despotism of the many--of the majority, if you choose to call it so--but it is not the less a despotism."
[Loan Ass'n v. Topeka, 87 U.S. (20 Wall.) 655, 665 (1874)]

The answer is an emphatic no.  It is up to We The People as the sovereigns in charge of our lawless government to right this massive injustice because a corrupted legislature and judiciary and the passive socialist voters in charge of the government today simply cannot remedy their own addiction to the money that was stolen from their neighbor by the criminals they elected into office.  These elected representatives were supposed to be elected to serve and protect the people, but they have become the worst abusers of the people because they only got into politics and government for selfish reasons.  Notice we didn't say they got into "public service", because we would be lying to call it that.  It would be more accurate to call what they do "self service" instead of "public service".  One of our readers has a name for these kinds of people.  He calls them SLAT:  Scum, Liars, and Thieves.  If you add up all the drug money, all the stolen property, all the white collar crime together, it would all pale in comparison to the “extortion under the color of law” that our own de facto government is instituting against its own people.  If we solve no crime problem other than that one problem, then the government will have done the most important thing it can do to solve our crime problem and probably significantly reduce the prison population at the same time.  There are lots of people in jail who were put there wrongfully for income tax crimes that aren’t technically even crimes.  These people were maliciously prosecuted by a corrupted  satan worshipping DOJ with the complicity of a corrupted judiciary and they MUST be freed because they have become slaves and political prisoners of a corrupted state for the sake of statutes that operate as the equialent of a "civil religion" and which are not and cannot be law in their case.  That's right: the corrupted state has erected a counterfeit church and religion that is a cheap imitation of God's design complete with churches, prayers, priests, deacons, tithes, and even its own "Bible" (franchise) and they have done so in violation of the First Amendment.  The nature of that civil religion is exhaustively described below:

We will now close this section with a tabular summary that compares our original “de jure” government to the “de facto” government that we presently suffer under.  This corrupted “de facto” government only continues to exist because of our our passive and tolerant approach towards the illegal activities of the government servants.  We can fix this if we really want to, folks.  Let’s do it!

Table 6-2: Comparison of our "De jure" v. "De facto" government

# Type of Separation of Powers De jure government De facto government
1 Separation of Church and State Government has no power to control or regulate the political activities of churches IRS 501(c ) designation allows government to remove tax exemption from churches if they get politically involved
2 Separation of Money and State Only lawful money is gold and the value of the dollar is tied to gold.  Government can’t manufacture more gold so they can’t abuse their power to coin money to enrich themselves. Fiat currency is Federal Reserve Notes (FRNs).  Government can print any amount of these it wants and thereby enrich itself and steal from the those who hold dollars by lowering the value of the dollars in circulation (inflation)
3 Separation of Marriage and State People getting married did not have marriage licenses from the state.  Instead, the ceremony was exclusively ecclesiastical and it was recorded only in the family Bible and church records. Pastor acts as an agent of both God and the state.  He performs the ceremony and is also licensed by the state to sign the state marriage license.  Churches force members getting married to obtain state marriage license by saying they won’t marry them without a state-issued marriage license.
4 Separation of School and State Schools were rural and remote and most were private or religious.  There were very few public schools and a large percentage of the population was home-schooled. Most student go to public schools.  They are dumbed-down by the state to be good serfs/sheep by being told they are “taxpayers” and being shown in high school how to fill out a tax return without even being shown how to balance a check book.  They are taught that government is the sovereign and not the people, and that people should obey the government.
5 Separation of State and Federal government States control the Senate and all legislation and taxation internal to a state.  Federal government controls only foreign commerce in the form of imposts, excises, and duties under Article 1, Section 8, Clause 3 of the Constitution. Federal government receives lions share of income taxes over both internal and external trade.  It redistributes the proceeds from these taxes to the socialist states, who are coerced to modify their laws in compliance with federal dictates in order to get their fair share of this stolen “loot”.
6 Separation between branches of government:  Executive, Legislative, Judicial Three branches of government are entirely independent and not controlled by other branches. Judges are “employees” of the executive branch and have a conflict of interest because they are beholden to IRS extortion.  Executive controls the illegal tax collection activities of the IRS and dictates to other branches it’s tax policy through illegal IRS extortion.  Using the IRS, Executive becomes the “Gestapo” that controls everything and everyone.  Congress and the courts refuse to reform this extortion because they benefit most financially by it.
7 Separation of Commerce and State Federal government regulates only foreign commerce of corporations.  States regulate all internal commerce.  Private individuals have complete privacy and are not regulated because they don’t have Socialist Security Numbers and are not monitored by the IRS Gestapo.  Banks are independent and do not have to participate in a national banking system so they don’t coerce their depositors to bet government-issued numbers nor do they snoop/spy on their depositors as an agent of the IRS Gestapo.  Private employers are not regulated or monitored by federal Gestapo and their contracts with their employees are private and sacred. All credit issued by a central, private Federal Reserve consortium.  Federal Reserve rules coerce private banks to illegally enforce federal laws in states of the Union that only apply in the federal zone.  Namely, they force depositors to have Socialist Security Numbers and they report all currency transactions over $3,000 to the Dept of the Treasury (CTR’s).  “Spying” on financial affairs citizens by government makes citizens afraid of IRS and government and coerces them to illegally pay income taxes by government.  Employers are coerced to enslave their employees to IRS through wage reporting and withholding, often against the will of employees.
8 Separation of Media and State Press was free to report as they saw fit under the First Amendment.  Most newspapers were small-town newspapers and were private and independent. Television, radio, the internet, and corporations have taken over the media and concentrated control of it to the hands of a very few huge and “privileged” corporations that are in bed with the federal and state governments.  Media is no longer independent, and broadcasters don’t dare cross the government for fear of either losing their FCC license, being subjected to an IRS audit, or having their government sponsorship revoked.
9 Separation of Family and State Families were completely separate from the state.  Private individuals were not subject to direct taxation or regulation by either state or federal government.  No Socialist Security Numbers and no government surveillance of private commerce by individuals.  Women stayed home and out of the workforce.  Men dominated the political and commercial landscape and also defended their family from encroachments by government.  Children were home-schooled and worked on the farm.  They inherited the republican values of their parents.  Morality was taught by the churches and there was an emphasis on personal responsibility, modesty, manners, respect, and humility. Using income taxes, mom was removed from the home to enter the workforce so she could replace the income stolen from dad by the IRS through illegal enforcement of the tax laws.  Conflict over money breaks families down and divorce rate reaches epidemic proportions.  Children are neglected by their parents because parents both have to work full-time and duke it out with each other in divorce court.  Majority of children raised in single parent homes.  Television and a liberal media dominates and distorts the thoughts and minds of the children.  Public schools filled with homosexuals and liberals, many of whom have no children of their own, teach our children to be selfish, rebellious, sexually promiscuous, homosexual drug-abusers.  Pornography invades the home through the internet, cable-TV, and video rentals, creating a negative fixation on sex.  Television interferes with family communication so that children are alienated from their parents so that they do not inherit good morals or respect for authority from their parents..  Crime rate and prison population reaches unprecedented levels.  Citizens therefore lose their ability to govern themselves and the legal field and government come in and take over their lives.
10 Separation of Charity and State Churches and families were responsible for charity.  When a person was old or became unemployed, members of the church or family would take them.  Personal responsibility and morality within churches and families would encourage them to improve their lives. Monolithic, huge, and terribly inefficient government bureaucracies replace families and churches as major source of charity.  These bureaucracies have no idea what personal responsibility is and are not allowed to talk about morality because they are not allowed to talk about God.  Generations of people grow up under this welfare umbrella without every having to take responsibility for themselves, and these people abuse their voting power to perpetuate it.  Supremacy of families and churches is eliminated and government becomes the new “god” for everyone to worship.  See Jeremiah 2:26-28.
