“We of this mighty western Republic have to grapple with the dangers that spring from popular self-government tried on a scale incomparably vaster than ever before in the history of mankind, and from an abounding material prosperity greater also than anything which the world has hitherto seen.

As regards the first set of dangers, it behooves us to remember that men can never escape being governed.  Either they must govern themselves or they must submit to being governed by others.  If from lawlessness or fickleness, from folly or self-indulgence, they refuse to govern themselves then most assuredly in the end they will have to be governed from the outside.  They can prevent the need of government from without only by showing they possess the power of government from within.  A sovereign cannot make excuses for his failures; a sovereign must accept the responsibility for the exercise of power that inheres in him; and where, as is true in our Republic, the people are sovereign, then the people must show a sober understanding and a sane and steadfast purpose if they are to preserve that orderly liberty upon which as a foundation every republic must rest.”
[President Theodore Roosevelt; Opening of the Jamestown Exposition; Norfolk, VA, April 26, 1907]

"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)]

“The chief enemies of republican freedom are mental sloth, conformity, bigotry, superstition, credulity, monopoly in the market of ideas, and utter, benighted ignorance.”
[Adderley v. State of Florida, 385 U.S. 39, 49 (1967)]

1. Original Design of our Republic

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 all the following as a group:

  1. Sovereign power held by the People through their direct participation in the affairs of government as jurists and voters.

    "The sovereignty of a state does not reside in the persons who fill the different departments of its government, but in the People, from whom the government emanated; and they may change it at their discretion. Sovereignty, then in this country, abides with the constituency, and not with the agent; and this remark is true, both in reference to the federal and state government."
    [Spooner v. McConnell, 22 F. 939, 943]

    __________________________________________________________________________________

    "There is no such thing as a power of inherent sovereignty in the government of the United States .... In this country sovereignty resides in the people, and Congress can exercise no power which they have not, by their Constitution entrusted to it: All else is withheld."
    [Juilliard v. Greenman, 110 U.S. 421, (1884)]

  2. All powers exercised by government are directly delegated to those serving in government by the people, both collectively and individually.

    "The question is not what power the federal government ought to have, but what powers, in fact, have been given by the people... The federal union is a government of delegated powers. It has only such as are expressly conferred upon it, and such as are reasonably to be implied from those granted.  In this respect, we differ radically from nations where all legislative power, without restriction or limitation, is vested in a parliament or other legislative body subject to no restriction except the discretion of its members." (Congress)
    [U.S. v. William M. Butler, 297 U.S. 1 (1936)]

    "The Government of the United States is one of delegated powers alone.  Its authority is defined and limited by the Constitution.  All powers not granted to it by that instrument are reserved to the States or the people." 
    [United States v. Cruikshank, 92 U.S. 542 (1875)]

    "It is again to antagonize Chief Justice Marshall, when he said: 'The government of the Union, then (whatever may be the influence of this fact on the case), is emphatically and truly a government of the people. In form and in substance it emanates from them. Its powers are granted by them, and are to be exercised directly on them and for their benefit. This government is acknowledged by all to be one of enumerated powers.' 4 Wheat. 404, 4 L.Ed. 601." 
    [Downes v. Bidwell, 182 U.S. 244 (1901)]

    The implication is that the people AS INDIVIDUALS are EQUAL to the government in the eyes of the law because you can’t delegate what you don’t have:

    “Derativa potestas non potest esse major primitiva.
    The power which is derived cannot be greater than that from which it is derived.”

    Nemo dat qui non habet. No one can give who does not possess. Jenk. Cent. 250.

    Nemo plus juris ad alienum transfere potest, quam ispe habent. One cannot transfer to another a right which he has not. Dig. 50, 17, 54; 10 Pet. 161, 175.

    Nemo potest facere per alium quod per se non potest. No one can do that by another which he cannot do by himself.

    Qui per alium facit per seipsum facere videtur. He who does anything through another, is considered as doing it himself. Co. Litt. 258.

    Quicpuid acquiritur servo, acquiritur domino. Whatever is acquired by the servant, is acquired for the master. 15 Bin. Ab. 327.

    Quod per me non possum, nec per alium. What I cannot do in person, I cannot do by proxy. 4 Co. 24.

    What a man cannot transfer, he cannot bind by articles.

  3. Separation of powers between three branches of government.  That separation is described in:
    Government Conspiracy to Destroy the Separation of Powers, Form #05.023
    https://sedm.org/Forms/FormIndex.htm
  4. Distinct separation of property rights between PUBLIC and PRIVATE.  By “public” we mean GOVERNMENT property.  That separation is described in:
    Separation Between Public and Private Course, Form #12.025
    https://sedm.org/Forms/FormIndex.htm

Without ALL of the above, every government becomes corrupt and turns into a de facto government as described in:

De Facto Government Scam, Form #05.043
https://sedm.org/Forms/FormIndex.htm

The concept of separation of powers 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]

http://famguardian.org/Subjects/Politics/ThomasJefferson/jeff1060.htm

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:

Syllabus of Case

"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]

Then the founders separated church and state and put the state and the church in competition with each other to protect and nurture the people.  We talked about this church/state separation and dual sovereignty earlier in section 4.3.6.

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.

2. Main Technique of Corruption: Introduce Franchises to replace UNALIENABLE PRIVATE Rights with REVOCABLE PUBLIC Statutory PRIVILEGES

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

The secret to how scoundrels corrupt our republic based on inalienable rights and replace it with a democracy based on revocable statutory privileges is to offer to grant or rent you government property with conditions or legal strings attached. That process is called a "franchise". The Bible and the U.S. Supreme Court both describe EXACTLY, from a legal perspective, WHEN AND HOW you personally facilitate this inversion of the de jure hierarchy in the previous section to make public servants into masters and make you the sovereign into a government employee or officer.  It is done with grants or rentals of government property that have legal strings attached.  This grant is what we call “government franchises” (Form #05.030) on our website.  The word “privilege” in fact is synonymous with granting or renting absolutely owned GOVERNMENT property and the legal strings attached to the grant.

“The rich rules over the poor,
And the borrower is servant to the lender.
[Prov. 22:7, Bible, NKJV]

“The State in such cases exercises no greater right than an individual may exercise over the use of his own property when leased or loaned to others. The conditions upon which the privilege shall be enjoyed being stated or implied in the legislation authorizing its grant, no right is, of course, impaired by their enforcement. The recipient of the privilege, in effect, stipulates to comply with the conditions. It matters not how limited the privilege conferred, its acceptance implies an assent to the regulation of its use and the compensation for it.”
[Munn v. Illinois, 94 U.S. 113 (1876) ]

Curses of Disobedience [to God’s Laws]

“The alien [Washington, D.C. is legislatively “alien” in relation to states of the Union] who is among you shall rise higher and higher above you, and you shall come down lower and lower [malicious destruction of EQUAL PROTECTION and EQUAL TREATMENT by abusing FRANCHISES].  He shall lend to you [Federal Reserve counterfeiting franchise], but you shall not lend to him; he shall be the head, and you shall be the tail.

“Moreover all these curses shall come upon you and pursue and overtake you, until you are destroyed, because you did not obey the voice of the Lord your God, to keep His commandments and His statutes which He commanded you.  And they shall be upon you for a sign and a wonder, and on your descendants forever.

“Because you did not serve [ONLY] the Lord your God with joy and gladness of heart, for the abundance of everything,  therefore you shall serve your [covetous thieving lawyer] enemies, whom the Lord will send against you, in hunger, in thirst, in nakedness, and in need of everything; and He will put a yoke of iron [franchise codes] on your neck until He has destroyed you.  The Lord will bring a nation against you from afar [the District of CRIMINALS], from the end of the earth, as swift as the eagle flies [the American Eagle], a nation whose language [LEGALESE] you will not understand,  a nation of fierce [coercive and fascist] countenance, which does not respect the elderly [assassinates them by denying them healthcare through bureaucratic delays on an Obamacare waiting list] nor show favor to the young [destroying their ability to learn in the public FOOL system].  And they shall eat the increase of your livestock and the produce of your land [with “trade or business” franchise taxes], until you [and all your property] are destroyed [or STOLEN/CONFISCATED]; they shall not leave you grain or new wine or oil, or the increase of your cattle or the offspring of your flocks, until they have destroyed you.
[Deut. 28:43-51, Bible, NKJV]

The problem with all such grants/rentals is that the covetous de facto (Form #05.043) government offering them can theoretically attach ANY condition they want to the grant.  If the property is something that is life threatening to do without, then they can destroy ALL of your constitutional rights and leave you with no judicial or legal remedy whatsoever for the loss of your fundamental or natural PRIVATE rights and otherwise PRIVATE property! This, in fact, is EXACTLY what Pharaoh did to the Israelites during the famine in Egypt, described in Genesis 47.

“But when Congress creates a statutory right [a “privilege” or “public right” in this case, such as a “trade or business”], it clearly has the discretion, in defining that right, to create presumptions, or assign burdens of proof, or prescribe remedies; it may also provide that persons seeking to vindicate that right must do so before particularized tribunals created to perform the specialized adjudicative tasks related to that right. FN35 Such provisions do, in a sense, affect the exercise of judicial power, but they are also incidental to Congress' power to define the right that it has created. No comparable justification exists, however, when the right being adjudicated is not of congressional creation. In such a situation, substantial inroads into functions that have traditionally been performed by the Judiciary cannot be characterized merely as incidental extensions of Congress' power to define rights that it has created. Rather, such inroads suggest unwarranted encroachments upon the judicial power of the United States, which our Constitution reserves for Art. III courts.”
[Northern Pipeline Const. Co. v. Marathon Pipe Line Co., 458 U.S. 50, 102 S.Ct. 2858 (1983)]

"The words "privileges" and "immunities," like the greater part of the legal phraseology of this country, have been carried over from the law of Great Britain, and recur constantly either as such or in equivalent expressions from the time of Magna Charta. For all practical purposes they are synonymous in meaning, and originally signified a peculiar right or private law conceded to particular persons or places whereby a certain individual or class of individuals was exempted from the rigor of the common law. Privilege or immunity is conferred upon any person when he is invested with a legal claim to the exercise of special or peculiar rights, authorizing him to enjoy some particular advantage or exemption. "

Whether you know it or not, by accepting such physical or intangible property you are, in effect, manifesting your implied consent (assent) under the Uniform Commercial Code (U.C.C.) to enter into a contract with the government that offered it in the process. Lawyers commonly call this type of interaction a "quid pro quo". That contract represents a constructive waiver of the sovereignty and sovereign immunity that comes from God Himself. Because the government is asking you to donate or GIVE PRIVATE/CONSTITUTIONAL rights in relation to them as consideration that would otherwise be INALIENABLE (Form #12.038), they are acting in a private, non-governmental capacity as a de facto government (Form #05.043) with no real official, judicial, or sovereign immunity. That franchise contract (Form #12.012) will, almost inevitably, end up being an adhesion contract that will be extremely one-sided and will not only NOT "benefit" you (the "Buyer") in the aggregate, but will work an extreme injury, inequality, and injustice (Form #05.050) that God actually forbids:

Lending to the Poor

If one of your brethren becomes poor [desperate], and falls into poverty among you, then you shall help him, like a stranger or a sojourner [transient foreigner and/or non-resident non-person, Form #05.020], that he may live with you. Take no usury or interest from him; but fear your God, that your brother may live with you.  You shall not lend him your money for usury, nor lend him your food at a profit. I am the Lord your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt, to give you the land of Canaan and to be your God.

The Law Concerning Slavery

And if one of your brethren who dwells by you becomes poor, and sells himself to you, you shall not compel him to serve as a slave. As a hired servant and a sojourner he shall be with you, and shall serve you until the Year of Jubilee. And then he shall depart from you—he and his children with him—and shall return to his own family. He shall return to the possession of his fathers. For they are My servants [Form #13.007] , whom I brought out of the land of Egypt; they shall not be sold as slaves. You shall not rule over him with rigor, but you shall fear your God.”
[Lev. 25:35-43, Bible, NKJV]


Adhesion Contract


Also found in: Dictionary, Thesaurus, Financial, Wikipedia.

Adhesion Contract

A type of contract, a legally binding agreement between two parties to do a certain thing, in which one side has all the bargaining power and uses it to write the contract primarily to his or her advantage.

An example of an adhesion contract is a standardized contract form that offers goods or services to consumers on essentially a "take it or leave it" basis without giving consumers realistic opportunities to negotiate terms that would benefit their interests. When this occurs, the consumer cannot obtain the desired product or service unless he or she acquiesces to the form contract.

There is nothing unenforceable or even wrong about adhesion contracts. In fact, most businesses would never conclude their volume of transactions if it were necessary to negotiate all the terms of every Consumer Credit contract. Insurance contracts and residential leases are other kinds of adhesion contracts. This does not mean, however, that all adhesion contracts are valid. Many adhesion contracts are Unconscionable; they are so unfair to the weaker party that a court will refuse to enforce them. An example would be severe penalty provisions for failure to pay loan installments promptly that are physically hidden by small print located in the middle of an obscure paragraph of a lengthy loan agreement. In such a case a court can find that there is no meeting of the minds of the parties to the contract and that the weaker party has not accepted the terms of the contract.

adhesion contract (contract of adhesion)

n. a contract (often a signed form) so imbalanced in favor of one party over the other that there is a strong implication it was not freely bargained. Example: a rich landlord dealing with a poor tenant who has no choice and must accept all terms of a lease, no matter how restrictive or burdensome, since the tenant cannot afford to move. An adhesion contract can give the little guy the opportunity to claim in court that the contract with the big shot is invalid. This doctrine should be used and applied more often, but the same big guy-little guy inequity may apply in the ability to afford a trial or find and pay a resourceful lawyer. (See: contract)

The temptation of the offer of the government franchise as an adhesion contract is exhaustively described, personified, and even dramatized in the following:

James Madison, whose notes were used to draft the Bill of Rights, predicted this perversion of the de jure Constitutional design, when he very insightfully said the following:

“With respect to the words general welfare, I have always regarded them as qualified by the detail of powers connected with them. To take them in a literal and unlimited sense would be a metamorphosis of the Constitution into a character which there is a host of proofs was not contemplated by its creator.”

If Congress can employ money indefinitely to the general welfare, and are the sole and supreme judges of the general welfare, they may take the care of religion into their own hands; they may appoint teachers in every State, county and parish and pay them out of their public treasury; they may take into their own hands the education of children, establishing in like manner schools throughout the Union; they may assume the provision of the poor; they may undertake the regulation of all roads other than post-roads; in short, every thing, from the highest object of state legislation down to the most minute object of police, would be thrown under the power of Congress…. Were the power of Congress to be established in the latitude contended for, it would subvert the very foundations, and transmute the very nature of the limited Government established by the people of America.

“If Congress can do whatever in their discretion can be done by money, and will promote the general welfare, the government is no longer a limited one possessing enumerated powers, but an indefinite one subject to particular exceptions.”
[James Madison. House of Representatives, February 7, 1792, On the Cod Fishery Bill, granting Bounties]

The term “general welfare” is synonymous with "benefit" in franchise language. "general welfare" as used above is, in fact, the basis for the entire modern welfare state that will eventually lead to a massive financial collapse and crisis worldwide.[NOTE 1]   Anyone who therefore supports such a system is ultimately an anarchist intent on destroying our present dysfunctional government and thereby committing the crime of Treason:[NOTE 2]

Socialism:  The New American Civil Religion, Form #05.016
https://sedm.org/Forms/05-MemLaw/SocialismCivilReligion.pdf

The Bible also describes how to REVERSE this inversion, how to restore our constitutional rights, and how to put public servants back in their role as servants rather than masters.  Note that accepting custody or “benefit” or grants of government property in effect behaves as an act of contracting, because it accomplishes the same effect, which is to create implied “obligations” in a legal sense:

"For the Lord your God will bless you just as He promised you; you shall lend to many nations, but you shall not borrow; you shall reign over many nations, but they shall not reign over you." 
[Deut. 15:6, Bible, NKJV]

______________________________________________________________________________________

"The Lord will open to you His good treasure, the heavens, to give the rain to your land in its season, and to bless all the work of your hand.  You shall lend to many nations, but you shall not borrow."
[Deut. 28:12, Bible, NKJV]

You shall make no covenant [contract or franchise] with them [foreigners, pagans], nor with their [pagan government] gods [laws or judges]. They shall not dwell in your land [and you shall not dwell in theirs by becoming a “resident” or domiciliary in the process of contracting with them], lest they make you sin against Me [God].  For if you serve their [government] gods [under contract or agreement or franchise], it will surely be a snare to you.”
[Exodus 23:32-33, Bible, NKJV]

_______________________________________________________________________________________

"I [God] brought you up from Egypt [slavery] and brought you to the land of which I swore to your fathers; and I said, 'I will never break My covenant with you. And you shall make no covenant [contract or franchise or agreement of ANY kind] with the inhabitants of this [corrupt pagan] land; you shall tear down their [man/government worshiping socialist] altars.' But you have not obeyed Me.  Why have you done this?

"Therefore I also said, 'I will not drive them out before you; but they will become as thorns [terrorists and persecutors] in your side and their gods will be a snare [slavery!] to you.'"

So it was, when the Angel of the LORD spoke these words to all the children of Israel, that the people lifted up their voices and wept.
[Judges 2:1-4, Bible, NKJV]

Following the above commandments requires not signing up for and quitting any and all government benefits and services you may have consensually signed up for or retained eligibility for.  All such applications and/or eligibility is called “special law” in the legal field.

“special law. One relating to particular persons or things; one made for individual cases or for particular places or districts; one operating upon a selected class, rather than upon the public generally.  A private law.  A law is "special" when it is different from others of the same general kind or designed for a particular purpose, or limited in range or confined to a prescribed field of action or operation.  A "special law" relates to either particular persons, places, or things or to persons, places, or things which, though not particularized, are separated by any method of selection from the whole class to which the law might, but not such legislation, be applied.  Utah Farm Bureau Ins. Co. v. Utah Ins. Guaranty Ass'n, Utah, 564 P.2d. 751, 754.  A special law applies only to an individual or a number of individuals out of a single class similarly situated and affected, or to a special locality.  Board of County Com'rs of Lemhi County v. Swensen, Idaho, 80 Idaho 198, 327 P.2d. 361, 362.  See also Private bill; Private law.  Compare General law; Public law.” 
[Black’s Law Dictionary, Sixth Edition, pp. 1397-1398]

We also prove that all such “special law” is not “law” in a classical sense, but rather an act of contracting, because it does not apply equally to all.  It is what the U.S. Supreme Court referred to as “class legislation” in Pollock v. Farmers Loan and Trust in which they declared the first income tax unconstitutional:

The income tax law under consideration is marked by discriminating features which affect the whole law. It discriminates between those who receive an income of four thousand dollars and those who do not. It thus vitiates, in my judgment, by this arbitrary discrimination, the whole legislation. Hamilton says in one of his papers, (the Continentalist,) "the genius of liberty reprobates everything arbitrary or discretionary in taxation. It exacts that every man, by a definite and general rule, should know what proportion of his property the State demands; whatever liberty we may boast of in theory, it cannot exist in fact while [arbitrary] assessments continue." 1 Hamilton's Works, ed. 1885, 270. The legislation, in the discrimination it makes, is class legislation. Whenever a distinction is made in the burdens a law imposes or in the benefits it confers on any citizens by reason of their birth, or wealth, or religion, it is class legislation, and leads inevitably to oppression and abuses, and to general unrest and disturbance in society [e.g. wars, political conflict, violence, anarchy]. It was hoped and believed that the great amendments to the Constitution which followed the late civil war had rendered such legislation impossible for all future time. But the objectionable legislation reappears in the act under consideration. It is the same in essential character as that of the English income statute of 1691, which taxed Protestants at a certain rate, Catholics, as a class, at double the rate of Protestants, and Jews at another and separate rate. Under wise and constitutional legislation every citizen should contribute his proportion, however small the sum, to the support of the government, and it is no kindness to urge any of our citizens to escape from that obligation. If he contributes the smallest mite of his earnings to that purpose he will have a greater regard for the government and more self-respect 597*597 for himself feeling that though he is poor in fact, he is not a pauper of his government. And it is to be hoped that, whatever woes and embarrassments may betide our people, they may never lose their manliness and self-respect. Those qualities preserved, they will ultimately triumph over all reverses of fortune.”
[Pollock v. Farmers' Loan & Trust Co., 157 U.S. 429 (Supreme Court 1895)]

To realistically apply the above biblical prohibitions against contracting with any government so as to eliminate the reversal of roles and destroy the dulocracy, see:

Path to Freedom, Form #09.015
https://sedm.org/Forms/09-Procs/PathToFreedom.pdf

Section 5 of the above document in particular deals with how to eliminate the dulocracy.  Section 5.6 also discusses the above mechanisms.

The idea of a present day dulocracy is entirely consistent with the theme of our website, which is the abuse of government franchises and privileges to destroy PRIVATE rights, STEAL private property, promote unhappiness, and inject malice and vitriol into the political process, as documented in:

Government Instituted Slavery Using Franchises, Form #05.030
FORMS PAGE: https://sedm.org/Forms/FormIndex.htm
DIRECT LINK: https://sedm.org/Forms/05-MemLaw/Franchises.pdf

The U.S. Supreme Court and the Bible both predicted these negative and unintended consequences of the abuse of government franchises, when they said:

“Here I close my opinion. I could not say less in view of questions of such gravity that they go down to the very foundations of the government. If the provisions of the Constitution can be set aside by an act of Congress, where is the course of usurpation to end?

The present assault upon capital [THEFT! and WEALTH TRANSFER by unconstitutional CONVERSION of PRIVATE property to PUBLIC property] is but the beginning. It will be but the stepping stone to others larger and more sweeping, until our political contest will become war of the poor against the rich; a war of growing intensity and bitterness.”
[Pollock v. Farmers’ Loan & Trust Co., 157 U.S. 429, 158 U.S. 601 (1895), hearing the case against the first income tax passed by Congress that included people in states of the Union. They declared that first income tax UNCONSTITUTIONAL, by the way]

_______________________________________________________________________________________

“Where do wars and fights come from among you? Do they not come from your desires for pleasure [unearned money or “benefits”, privileges, or franchises, from the government] that war in your members [and your democratic governments]? You lust [after other people's money] and do not have. You murder [the unborn to increase your standard of living] and covet [the unearned] and cannot obtain [except by empowering your government to STEAL for you!]. You fight and war [against the rich and the nontaxpayers to subsidize your idleness]. Yet you do not have because you do not ask [the Lord, but instead ask the deceitful government]. You ask and do not receive, because you ask amiss, that you may spend it on your pleasures. Adulterers and adulteresses! Do you not know that friendship [statutory “citizenship”] with the world [or the governments of the world] is enmity with God?  Whoever therefore wants to be a friend [STATUTORY “citizen”, “resident”, “inhabitant”, “person” franchisee] of the world [or the governments of the world] makes himself an enemy of God.”
[James 4:4, Bible, NKJV]

The “foundations of the government” spoken of above are PRIVATE property, separation between public and private, and equality of treatment and opportunity, which collectively are called “legal justice”, as is pointed out on the SEDM opening page:

Our ministry accomplishes the above goals by emphasizing:

12. The pursuit of legal “justice” (Form #05.050), which means absolutely owned private property (Form #10.002), and equality of TREATMENT and OPPORTUNITY (Form #05.033) under REAL LAW (Form #05.048).  The following would be INJUSTICE, not JUSTICE:

12.1 Outlawing or refusing to recognize or enforce absolutely owned private property (Form #12.025).

12.2 Imposing equality of OUTCOME by law, such as by abusing taxing powers to redistribute wealth.  See Form #11.302.

12.3 Any attempt by government to use judicial process or administrative enforcement to enforce any civil obligation derived from any source OTHER than express written consent or to an injury against the equal rights of others demonstrated with court admissible evidence.  See Form #09.073 and Form #12.040.

12.4 Offering, implementing, or enforcing any civil franchise (Form #05.030).  This enforces superior powers on the part of the government as a form of inequality and results in religious idolatry.  This includes making justice into a civil public privilege (Form #05.050, Section 13) or turning CONSTITUTIONAL PRIVATE citizens into STATUTORY PUBLIC citizens engaged in a public office and a franchise (Form #05.006).

Not only would the above be INJUSTICE, it would outlaw HAPPINESS, because the right to absolutely own private property is equated with “the pursuit of happiness” in the Declaration of Independence, according to the U.S. Supreme Court.  See Form #05.050 for the definition of “justice”.  Click here to view a video on why all franchises produce selfishness, unhappiness, inequality, and ingratitude.

Too many public servants have assumed absolute authority over the people they are supposed to serve. This REVERSAL of roles and making the SERVANTS into the MASTERS was never the intent of the Founding Fathers who established the American governments as republics where the rights of the people are to be paramount and the sovereignty of the governments are limited by the rights of the people. Sovereignty in America is not based on the same premise as sovereignty in Europe. Sovereignty in Europe was based on the notion of the Divine Right of Kings where the king's sovereignty was absolute and the people were his subjects. Sovereignty in America is based on the notion that citizens are endowed by the Creator with unalienable rights and then lend their permission to the governments to carry out certain, limited responsibilities on their behalf. In a republican form of government, the government is never allowed to overstep its authority or trample on the rights of the citizen no matter how egalitarian the political arguments may be.

Jesus Himself also emphasized that public SERVANTS should never become RULERS or have superior authority to the people they are supposed to SERVE when He said the following.

“You know that the rulers of the Gentiles [unbelievers] lord it over them [govern from ABOVE as pagan idols] , and those who are great exercise authority over them [supernatural powers that are the object of idol worship].  Yet it shall not be so among you; but whoever desires to become great among you, let him be your servant [serve the sovereign people from BELOW rather than rule from above]. And whoever desires to be first among you, let him be your slave—just as the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give His life a ransom for many.
[Matt. 20:25-28, Bible, NKJV]

Notice the word “ransom for many” in the above.  This is an admission that Jesus acknowledges that cunning public servant lawyers have KIDNAPPED our legal identity from the protection of God’s law and that legal identity has been transported to a legislatively foreign jurisdiction, the District of Criminals.  We exhaustively prove this with evidence and give you tools to stop it in the following:

  1. Government Identity Theft, Form #05.042

  2. Identity Theft Affidavit, Form #14.020
    https://sedm.org/Forms/14-PropProtection/Identity_Theft_Affidavit-f14039.pdf
  3. Hot Issues: Identification and Identity Theft*, SEDM
    https://sedm.org/identification/

Jesus also states in Matt. 20:25-28 that it is the DUTY and obligation of every Christian to fight this corruption of our political system.  The Holy Bible is our Delegation of Authority to do precisely this, in fact, and to restore God to His proper role as the ruler of ALL nations and ALL politicians and the only rightful Lawgiver of all human law.  That delegation of authority is described in:

Delegation of Authority Order from God to Christians, Form #13.007
https://sedm.org/Forms/13-SelfFamilyChurchGovnce/DelOfAuthority.pdf

Lastly, THE MOST evil type of Christian is one who abuses grants or loans AGAINST GOD to control and enslave God. If CHRISTIANS who use grants of property to God to control God are THE MOST DEMONIC OF ALL, then GOVERNMENTS who do the same things to the citizens they are supposed to be protecting are EQUALLY THE MOST DEMONIC in the world.

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.”

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”.

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.

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.

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.

11 2000-Present

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-worshiping 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.

4. God's Remedy for the Corruption

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. For evidence of exactly what about them he thinks became corrupted, see:

Who Where the Pharisees and the Saducees?, Form #05.047
https://sedm.org/Forms/05-MemLaw/WhoWerePharisees.pdf

God furthermore says in the Isaiah scripture above that 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:

Socialism:  The New American Civil Religion, Form #05.016
DIRECT LINK: http://sedm.org/Forms/05-MemLaw/SocialismCivilReligion.pdf (OFFSITE LINK)
FORMS PAGE: http://sedm.org/Forms/FormIndex.htm  (OFFSITE)

Why does God describe the source of the corruption as bad lawyers and judges instead of the people accepting the franchises as "Buyers", you might ask? The answer is that:

  1. The Constitution and the Declaration of Independence recognize natural rights as INALIENABLE. See Unalienable Rights Course, Form #12.038.
  2. An INALIENABLE right is one that YOU AREN'T ALLOWED BY LAW to consent (Form #05.003) to give away.
  3. If you can't even lawfully consent (Form #05.003) to give away the right, then you can never lose it or contract it away by participating in a government franchise (Form #05.030) or accepting a grant/rental of government property.
  4. The fact that judges and lawyers ALLOW inalienable rights (Form #12.038) to be given away in a place where they aren't allowed to be given away is a sign that they love money and enhancing their own power more than they love freedom or the Constitution.
  5. Because they love money and power more than they love freedom and obeying the constitution, they are committing treason punishable by deah in violation of 18 U.S.C. §2381 and serving Satan himself.

Below is how we explain this conundrum in our Disclaimer:

Every attempt by anyone in government to alienate rights that the Declaration of Independence says are UNALIENABLE shall also be treated as "PRIVATE BUSINESS ACTIVITY" that cannot be protected by sovereign, official, or judicial immunity. So called "government" cannot make a profitable business or franchise out of alienating inalienable rights without ceasing to be a classical/de jure government and instead becoming in effect an economic terrorist and de facto government in violation of Article 4, Section 4.

"No servant [or government or biological person] can serve two masters; for either he will hate the one and love the other, or else he will be loyal to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and mammon [government].
[Luke 16:13, Bible, NKJV]

5. A Biblical Example of Someone Who Fought the Corruption

Not every aspect of the King's privileges and avoiding them is as grim as described above. Rewards, protection, and provision are promised by God for those who resist them in the Bible. We will cover that subject in this section.

What is described in this article and in Deut. 28:43-51 literally represents the invasion of a nation by a legislatively foreign country by money changers who want to abuse their authority to pillage and enslave the country, enslave the inhabitants, and turn all the inhabitants into beasts of burden (state cattle) who are compelled at gunpoint to pay tribute to their conqueror(s). That invasion, by the way, is PROHIBITED by the constitution in Article 4, Section 4 and the person responsible for enforcing that prohibition is the MAIN INVADER! They do it by finding something the people cannot do without that they have a monopoly in providing, and attach any condition or cost they want to their monopoly service or property:

TRIBUTE. Tribute in the sense of an impost paid by one state to another, as a mark of subjugation, is a common feature of international relationships in the biblical world. The tributary could be either a hostile state or an ally. Like deportation, its purpose was to weaken a hostile state. Deportation aimed at depleting the man-power. The aim of tribute was probably twofold: to impoverish the subjugated state and at the same time to increase the conqueror’s own revenues and to acquire commodities in short supply in his own country. As an instrument of administration it was one of the simplest ever devised: the subjugated country could be made responsible for the payment of a yearly tribute. Its non-arrival would be taken as a sign of rebellion, and an expedition would then be sent to deal with the recalcitrant. This was probably the reason for the attack recorded in Gn. 14.
[New Bible Dictionary. Third Edition. Wood, D. R. W., Wood, D. R. W., & Marshall, I. H. 1996, c1982, c1962; InterVarsity Press: Downers Grove]

There are lots of biblical examples of this happening, including:

  1. The story describing the origins of the city of Babylon, in which Nimrod was a mighty hunter of men and built a city to turn people into government cattle. Gen. 10:9 describes Nimrod as a "mighty hunter" and the thing he hunted were MEN! See 1 Chron. 1:10 and Micah 5:6. God confounded the language of the Babylonians because they worshiped a secular King instead of God. Babylon is synonymous with "the city of confusion". Nimrod was born in about 2213BC.
  2. The famine in Egypt, in which Pharaoh turned his own people literally into cattle. Gen. 47.
  3. The Babylonian captivity of the Israelites for 70 years, starting in 606 BCE. The invasion is described in Dan. 1. Ezra 1:1 describes the end of this captivity.

Whenever the people rebel against God, he causes evil rulers to invade their cities, destroy them, bring the people into bondage, and scatters them abroad in a diaspora. See the following for a description of this process:

Government Corruption as a Cause for Diaspora and Political Fragmentation of Communities into Private Membership Associations (PMAs), SEDM
https://sedm.org/government-corruption-as-a-cause-for-diaspora-and-political-fragmentation-of-communities-into-private-membership-associations/

Of all the above examples of bringing the people into subjugation and servitude, the best one is the Israelite captivity in Babylon for 70 years. The book of Jeremiah 29 describes why God sent them into captivity as follows. It is a letter written by a prophet to the captives:

Jeremiah’s Letter to the Captives

29 Now these are the words of the letter that Jeremiah the prophet sent from Jerusalem to the remainder of the elders who were carried away captive—to the priests, the prophets, and all the people whom Nebuchadnezzar had carried away captive from Jerusalem to Babylon. 2 (This happened after Jeconiah the king, the queen mother, the ]eunuchs, the princes of Judah and Jerusalem, the craftsmen, and the smiths had departed from Jerusalem.) The letter was sent by the hand of Elasah the son of Shaphan, and Gemariah the son of Hilkiah, whom Zedekiah king of Judah sent to Babylon, to Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon, saying,

4 Thus says the Lord of hosts, the God of Israel, to all who were carried away captive, whom I have caused to be carried away from Jerusalem to Babylon:

5 Build houses and dwell in them; plant gardens and eat their fruit. 6 Take wives and beget sons and daughters; and take wives for your sons and give your daughters to husbands, so that they may bear sons and daughters—that you may be increased there, and not diminished. 7 And seek the peace of the city where I have caused you to be carried away captive, and pray to the Lord for it; for in its peace you will have peace. 8 For thus says the Lord of hosts, the God of Israel: Do not let your prophets and your diviners who are in your midst deceive you, nor listen to your dreams which you cause to be dreamed. 9 For they prophesy falsely to you in My name; I have not sent them, says the Lord.

10 For thus says the Lord: After seventy years are completed at Babylon, I will visit you and perform My good word toward you, and cause you to return to this place. 11 For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope. 12 Then you will call upon Me and go and pray to Me, and I will listen to you. 13 And you will seek Me and find Me, when you search for Me with all your heart. 14 I will be found by you, says the Lord, and I will bring you back from your captivity; I will gather you from all the nations and from all the places where I have driven you, says the Lord, and I will bring you to the place from which I cause you to be carried away captive.

15 Because you have said, “The Lord has raised up prophets for us in Babylon”— 16 therefore thus says the Lord concerning the king who sits on the throne of David, concerning all the people who dwell in this city, and concerning your brethren who have not gone out with you into captivity— 17 thus says the Lord of hosts: Behold, I will send on them the sword, the famine, and the pestilence, and will make them like rotten figs that cannot be eaten, they are so bad. 18 And I will pursue them with the sword, with famine, and with pestilence; and I will deliver them to trouble among all the kingdoms of the earth—to be a curse, an astonishment, a hissing, and a reproach among all the nations where I have driven them, 19 because they have not heeded My words, says the Lord, which I sent to them by My servants the prophets, rising up early and sending them; neither would you heed, says the Lord. 20 Therefore hear the word of the Lord, all you of the captivity, whom I have sent from Jerusalem to Babylon.

21 Thus says the Lord of hosts, the God of Israel, concerning Ahab the son of Kolaiah, and Zedekiah the son of Maaseiah, who prophesy a lie to you in My name: Behold, I will deliver them into the hand of Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon, and he shall slay them before your eyes. 22 And because of them a curse shall be taken up by all the captivity of Judah who are in Babylon, saying, “The Lord make you like Zedekiah and Ahab, whom the king of Babylon roasted in the fire”; 23 because they have done disgraceful things in Israel, have committed adultery with their neighbors’ wives, and have spoken lying words in My name, which I have not commanded them. Indeed I know, and am a witness, says the Lord.

24 You shall also speak to Shemaiah the Nehelamite, saying, 25 Thus speaks the Lord of hosts, the God of Israel, saying: You have sent letters in your name to all the people who are at Jerusalem, to Zephaniah the son of Maaseiah the priest, and to all the priests, saying, 26 “The Lord has made you priest instead of Jehoiada the priest, so that there should be officers in the house of the Lord over every man who is demented and considers himself a prophet, that you should put him in prison and in the stocks. 27 Now therefore, why have you not rebuked Jeremiah of Anathoth who makes himself a prophet to you? 28 For he has sent to us in Babylon, saying, ‘This captivity is long; build houses and dwell in them, and plant gardens and eat their fruit.’ ”

29 Now Zephaniah the priest read this letter in the hearing of Jeremiah the prophet. 30 Then the word of the Lord came to Jeremiah, saying: 31 Send to all those in captivity, saying, Thus says the Lord concerning Shemaiah the Nehelamite: Because Shemaiah has prophesied to you, and I have not sent him, and he has caused you to trust in a lie— 32 therefore thus says the Lord: Behold, I will punish Shemaiah the Nehelamite and his [c]family: he shall not have anyone to dwell among this people, nor shall he see the good that I will do for My people, says the Lord, because he has taught rebellion against the Lord.

[Jer. 1, Bible, NKJV]

The Book of Daniel 1 describes the captivity in which four Israelites were carried away to Babylon and are recruited involuntarily into the King's service. Their names were Daniel, Hananiah, Mishael, and Azariah. The King renamed them to Belteshazzar, Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-Nego. Whenever the Babylonians invaded a foreign city, they would rename the people they called into their service, just like the modern pagan government assigns a "straw man" name to everyone so they can be regulated and taxed. See:

Proof that there is a "Straw man", Form #05.042
https://sedm.org/Forms/05-MemLaw/StrawMan.pdf

Before Daniel could serve the King, he had to be isolated, indoctrinated, forced to accept the privileges and benefits of the King or be punished, and finally assigned a new identity (identity alteration). These are the SAME four steps of conquest that the modern corrupt state uses against people it is supposed to be protecting and serving:

  1. Isolation. Jeremiah 1. The Israelites were placed in exile and isolated from their people. In modern times, this is what the "cancel culture" does: Cut people off economically from their support system until they assimilate into the group that is attacking them.
  2. Indoctrination. Dan 1:1-4. The Israelites were taught to believe and think like the conquerors. In modern times, this is done with legal deception and media propaganda. See:
    Legal Deception, Propaganda, and Fraud, Form #05.014
    https://sedm.org/Forms/05-MemLaw/LegalDecPropFraud.pdf
  3. Compelled to accept the King's privileges. Dan. 1:5. This is done to keep them in fear of losing something they value so that they will not disobey. In modern times, this is done with benefits, privileges, and franchises. See:

  4. Identity alteration. Dan. 1:7. The captives were renamed. The names were created by the conqueror and whatever they create they literally own as property. In modern times, this is done by assigning fictional civil statuses to people, such as "person", "citizen", "resident", etc. to in effect appoint them into service of the government under a state sponsored franchise.

Below is a biblical account of the conquest of people by the legislatively foreign conquerors described in Deut. 28:43-51:

1 In the third year of the reign of Jehoiakim king of Judah, Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon came to Jerusalem and besieged it.  2 And the Lord gave Jehoiakim king of Judah into his hand, with some of the articles of the house of God, which he carried into the land of Shinar to the house of his god; and he brought the articles into the treasure house of his god.

Then the king instructed Ashpenaz, the master of his eunuchs, to bring some of the children of Israel and some of the king’s descendants and some of the nobles, 4 young men in whom there was no blemish, but good-looking, gifted in all wisdom, possessing knowledge and quick to understand, who had ability to serve in the king’s palace, and whom they might teach the language and literature of the Chaldeans. 5 And the king appointed for them a daily provision of the king’s delicacies and of the wine which he drank, and three years of training for them, so that at the end of that time they might serve before the king. 6 Now from among those of the sons of Judah were Daniel, Hananiah, Mishael, and Azariah. 7 To them the chief of the eunuchs gave names: he gave Daniel the name Belteshazzar; to Hananiah, Shadrach; to Mishael, Meshach; and to Azariah, Abed-Nego.

8 But Daniel purposed in his heart that he would not defile himself with the portion of the king’s delicacies, nor with the wine which he drank; therefore he requested of the chief of the eunuchs that he might not defile himself. 9 Now God had brought Daniel into the favor and goodwill of the chief of the eunuchs. 10 And the chief of the eunuchs said to Daniel, “I fear my lord the king, who has appointed your food and drink. For why should he see your faces looking worse than the young men who are your age? Then you would endanger my head before the king.”

11 So Daniel said to the steward whom the chief of the eunuchs had set over Daniel, Hananiah, Mishael, and Azariah, 12 “Please test your servants for ten days, and let them give us vegetables to eat and water to drink. 13 Then let our appearance be examined before you, and the appearance of the young men who eat the portion of the king’s delicacies; and as you see fit, so deal with your servants.” 14 So he consented with them in this matter, and tested them ten days.

15 And at the end of ten days their features appeared better and fatter in flesh than all the young men who ate the portion of the king’s delicacies. 16 Thus the steward took away their portion of delicacies and the wine that they were to drink, and gave them vegetables.

17 As for these four young men, God gave them knowledge and skill in all literature and wisdom; and Daniel had understanding in all visions and dreams.

18 Now at the end of the days, when the king had said that they should be brought in, the chief of the eunuchs brought them in before Nebuchadnezzar. 19 Then the king interviewed them, and among them all none was found like Daniel, Hananiah, Mishael, and Azariah; therefore they served before the king. 20 And in all matters of wisdom and understanding about which the king examined them, he found them ten times better than all the magicians and astrologers who were in all his realm. 21 Thus Daniel continued until the first year of King Cyrus.

[Dan. 1:1-21, Bible, NKJV]

So we can see that the four men that were called by the King BOYCOTTED the king's privileges and delicacies, were blessed and protected by God for doing so and turned out wiser than all others. Eventually, they all defied the King and were thrown in the fiery furnace by the king and survived.

Daniel’s Friends Disobey the King

8 Therefore at that time certain Chaldeans came forward and accused the Jews. 9 They spoke and said to King Nebuchadnezzar, “O king, live forever! 10 You, O king, have made a decree that everyone who hears the sound of the horn, flute, harp, lyre, and psaltery, in symphony with all kinds of music, shall fall down and worship the gold image; 11 and whoever does not fall down and worship shall be cast into the midst of a burning fiery furnace. 12 There are certain Jews whom you have set over the affairs of the province of Babylon: Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-Nego; these men, O king, have not paid due regard to you. They do not serve your gods or worship the gold image which you have set up.”

13 Then Nebuchadnezzar, in rage and fury, gave the command to bring Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-Nego. So they brought these men before the king. 14 Nebuchadnezzar spoke, saying to them, “Is it true, Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-Nego, that you do not serve my gods or worship the gold image which I have set up? 15 Now if you are ready at the time you hear the sound of the horn, flute, harp, lyre, and psaltery, in symphony with all kinds of music, and you fall down and worship the image which I have made, good! But if you do not worship, you shall be cast immediately into the midst of a burning fiery furnace. And who is the god who will deliver you from my hands?”

16 Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-Nego answered and said to the king, “O Nebuchadnezzar, we have no need to answer you in this matter. 17 If that is the case, our God whom we serve is able to deliver us from the burning fiery furnace, and He will deliver us from your hand, O king. 18 But if not, let it be known to you, O king, that we do not serve your gods, nor will we worship the gold image which you have set up.”

Saved in Fiery Trial

19 Then Nebuchadnezzar was full of fury, and the expression on his face changed toward Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-Nego. He spoke and commanded that they heat the furnace seven times more than it was usually heated. 20 And he commanded certain mighty men of valor who were in his army to bind Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-Nego, and cast them into the burning fiery furnace. 21 Then these men were bound in their coats, their trousers, their turbans, and their other garments, and were cast into the midst of the burning fiery furnace. 22 Therefore, because the king’s command was urgent, and the furnace exceedingly hot, the flame of the fire killed those men who took up Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-Nego. 23 And these three men, Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-Nego, fell down bound into the midst of the burning fiery furnace.

24 Then King Nebuchadnezzar was astonished; and he rose in haste and spoke, saying to his counselors, “Did we not cast three men bound into the midst of the fire?”

They answered and said to the king, “True, O king.”

25 “Look!” he answered, “I see four men loose, walking in the midst of the fire; and they are not hurt, and the form of the fourth is like the[e] Son of God.”

[Dan 3:8-25, BIble, NKJV]

The moral of the story is:

  1. God expects and requires us to reject any and all privileges, benefits, and property of the King.
  2. Resisting privileges and benefits will be tough, but God will strengthen us for doing so.
  3. In resisting government privileges, we should be firm and direct, but respectful with the king like Daniel was.
  4. God will protect and bless us for putting Him first and never allowing the King to compete with God or put himself above the rest of the people.

In contemporary terms, we as Christians must always remember EXACTLY what the privileges of the king consist of so that we know EXACTLY what God calls us to resist. These are:

  1. All government privileges described in:
    Government Instituted Slavery Using Franchises, Form #05.030
    https://sedm.org/Forms/05-MemLaw/Franchises.pdf
  2. Civil domicile. See:
    Why Domicile and Becoming a "Taxpayer" Require Your Consent, Form #05.002
    https://sedm.org/Forms/05-MemLaw/Domicile.pdf
  3. Government benefits, payments, or "social insurance" implemented with franchises. See:
    Social Security: Mark of the Beast, Form #11.407
    http://famguardian.org/Publications/SocialSecurity/TOC.htm
  4. STATUTORY citizenship. See:
    Why You are a "national", "state national", and Constitutional but not Statutory Citizen, Form #05.006
    https://sedm.org/Forms/05-MemLaw/WhyANational.pdf
  5. Any and all civil statutory statuses, including but not limited to "citizen", "resident", "person", "driver", etc. See:
    Why Statutory Civil Law is Law for Government and Not Private Persons, Form #05.037
    https://sedm.org/Forms/05-MemLaw/StatLawGovt.pdf

Doing all the above restores what we define as "natural law" in our Disclaimer. See:

Disclaimer, Section 4.31: natural law
https://famguardian.org/disclaimer.htm#4.31._Natural_law

Any attempt by anyone in the government to INTERFERE with the ability to restore natural law as indicated above makes that government a de facto government in violation of organic law and the requirement for consent documented in the Declaration of Independence. See:

6. De Jure v. De Facto Government

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.
11 Separation of Public and Private Property All property is presumed to be absolutely owned, private, and not subject to state or public or government control. This is the foundation of the Fifth Amendment protection for private property. See: Separation Between Public and Private, Form #12.025. Corrupt and covetous public servants implement socialism, where all property is presumed to be absolutely owned by the government, and everyone is a BORROWER of said property with conditions. Those conditions are called "franchises", and government can regulate and control ANYONE and ANYTHING it wants. See Government Instituted Slavery Using Franchises, form #05.030.
