As Sovereign of the Land, Gregory, we have original jurisdiction to directly instruct government on our Supreme Authority. To facilitate that Power, we need can issue our Proclamations along this example >>>
Did you spot a friend request?
Yes, and I did click on it to accept.
Pat, Been very distracted. Getting back in soon.
No matter how right we are the powers that be will not reason with us. Their mission is our total defeat by any means necessary.
Right or wrong is not in their heads.
My firm position, Gregory, is that these 'powers that be' only possess such 'power' in their meticulously constructed private jurisdiction. By keeping the fact and limits of their jurisdiction from general understanding, they've cajoled us all to move our affairs of life under it and thus under their legal authority to 'lord over.'
Like Dorothy in Oz, however, it's actually as easy as 'clicking our heels together' to remove ourselves BACK to existing as State Citizens under their original, ordinary legal jurisdictions in Lawful Permanent Domicile and 'get off the Plantation' to self-govern again.
I say the fences confining us, are principally in our heads.
Pat, what body is going to proclaim you right and enforce your rights?
Gregory, God, acting through the record of Common Law 'proclaims' my rights and all those who seek Right and Justice under Common Law are thereby obligated to enforce it for our mutual protection and well-being.
Given that the State and federation Constitutions were all created in the Spirit of Common Law, an Oath to uphold the tenets of those documents, are consequently bound to preserve and defend their very underlying foundational underpinnings as well.
Jon, good point, but it only applies if those acting under our authority abide by the laws that restrict them. That is precisely why we have the problem, today. We, the people, have failed in our charge of 'eternal vigilance'. But we can take the blinders off--if we have the will.
Yes, there absolutely is hope. It is called knee power and it works. I tried it.
2 Chronicles 7:14
14 if my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.
1. Humble ourselves
3. Seek God's face
4. Turn from our wicked ways
When Congress instituted the 'Government of the District of Columbia' in 1871, Christopher, it adopted the Constitution of 1787 ... minus ... the true 13th Amendment which HAD been in it's Body for the previous half century.
Apart from that, Congress unilaterally disbanded the independent municipalities of Washington and Alexandria to incorporate them under the government Congress created.
