I apparently startled a great many people with the “news” that the “Stars and Stripes” war flag is not our flag—not at this time, and not at any time since 1814:
“From the loftiest point of its roof, during precisely three and a half hours of the forenoon, floats or droops, in breeze or calm, the banner of the republic; but with the thirteen stripes turned vertically, not horizontally……” Nathaniel Hawthorne, “Introductory: The Customs House” , The Scarlet Letter, published 1850.
In my article about the need to correct your political status (since your identity has been stolen and your political status deliberately misrepresented almost from birth) I also addressed the necessity of “re-flagging” your “vessel” to function in international trade instead of international commerce.
International trade is business conducted by unincorporated people and businesses.
International commerce is business conducted by incorporated entities— C Corps, S Corps, Foundations, Trusts, etc., etc., etc.
The “federal government” controls commerce. It does not have any control over trade.
What it boils down to is this:
There is the unincorporated United States which is owned and operated by the also unincorporated united States of America, which ultimately controls all the un-delegated powers of the states and people in international jurisdiction, and then, there is the foreign-owned incorporated UNITED STATES, INC. which until quite recently (2009) had the contract to provide the services stipulated as “delegated powers” in the international jurisdiction of the sea.
Both the unincorporated United States and the incorporated UNITED STATES have “vessels” that operate in international jurisdiction.
The “vessels” of the unincorporated United States are American vessels engaged in peaceful international trade. These vessels are “Protected Persons”. The British Crown and the British Monarch and the Roman Pontiff are all obligated to protect and defend every such vessel that sails under the Great Seal and the peacetime flag of the unincorporated United States.
The vessels of the incorporated UNITED STATES are (at this point) stateless international vessels engaged in commerce (which is business between incorporated entities, not living people) belonging as franchises to a commercial corporation undergoing liquidation in bankruptcy. They are flying a war flag (the Stars and Stripes) and they are subject to seizure by bill collectors and privateers on the High Seas and Navigable Inland Waterways.
It will no doubt come as a surprise to many more people, but you are being identified as one or the other kind of “vessel”.
Here’s the deceit you have been ensnared with.
The name “John Mark Doe” may be interpreted as either a commercial Foreign Situs Trust “vessel” belonging to the bankrupt war-mongering private, mostly foreign-owned commercial corporation deceitfully doing business under the name “United States, Inc.” styled as the UNITED STATES — or, it can be interpreted as a peaceful American state “vessel” engaged in international trade.
Which one are you?
-FDR based his whole scam on “mistaking” American vessels operating in international trade as US vessels operating in international commerce.
It’s a personal political choice that nobody can interfere with—but you weren’t even made aware that you have a choice.
You were “seized upon”— press-ganged and kidnapped when you were just a baby. Your identity as an American was stolen and unlawfully converted to that of a “US” citizen—- a municipal corporate franchise “vessel” of the UNITED STATES, INC.
The reason I am banging the “Fraud Gong” so loudly is that if you remain identified as a UNITED STATES CITIZEN and fly the Stars and Stripes war flag, you will be identified falsely as a US commercial vessel, and as a stateless international criminal under Admiralty Prize Law. You will be subject to attack and seizure of your “vessel” and your assets. And that is precisely what our enemies want to do— attack you in court and steal you blind.
They want you to stupidly, innocently stumble along without a clue in the world that you are being misidentified as something you are not and never were.
They want you to be misidentified, because that is what gives them the ability to arrest you, plunder your assets, and punish you for crimes you haven’t ever committed.
And I am saying— bullshit. These people are American state nationals who never had a clue what these criminal commercial corporations were doing or saying about them.
I am saying, bluntly, flatly, that war crimes including press-ganging, kidnapping, enslavement, and more— have been committed against us, and that the unlawful conversion of our estates and the false presumptions against our political status were made in self-interest and under conditions of fraud and deliberate deceit when we were just babies in our cradles.
I am saying, equally bluntly, that we are living people not corporations, not “voluntary” franchisees of any foreign corporations.
We haven’t committed any crimes on the High Seas or elsewhere. We are not “stateless” and we are not “commercial vessels”.
You want the Republic back? Well, it never really left.
In 1850 prior to the illegal and unlawful so-called “American Civil War” American Author Nathaniel Hawthorne published The Scarlet Letter, with hundreds of millions of copies distributed throughout the world ever since.
At the very beginning of the book he describes the flag of the unincorporated United States — the civil flag of the Republic in what he called the “Introductory — The Customs House”. I quote:
“From the loftiest point of its roof, during precisely three and a half hours of the forenoon, floats or droops, in breeze or calm, the banner of the republic; but with the thirteen stripes turned vertically, not horizontally……”
In 1850, no incorporated foreign corporation merely calling itself the “United States” or the “United States of America” existed.
Game — and argument — over.
I don’t care what the “opinion” of “Snopes” or “Wikipedia” may be. I will take Nathaniel Hawthorne’s direct, published experience over their “opinions” any day.
We may be sure that what Hawthorne described is our unincorporated United States flag denoting vessels operating as peaceful American vessels engaged in international trade, not international commerce.
And that, is the entire key. That is the distinction that obligates the Roman Pontiff and the British Crown and the British Monarch to protect us—instead of defrauding and attacking us.
Fly the vertical striped flag. Put it on your correspondence. Place it on all and any legal documents you have to sign, and sign your name over it so that your name is directly physically connected to the republic’s civil flag.
Your republic still stands and is still owed to you. It’s yours. Take it back. Enforce its treaties. Enforce its Public Laws. Enforce its actual Constitution.
Take these false Trustees to task. Sue them. Hound them. Expose them.
Reclaim your birthright political status as a Texan, Minnesotan, Floridian…..
Restore your local unincorporated Jural Assemblies. Seize back your land and void their phony titles. Seize back your name and void their infringements. You are the lawful Holder in Due Course.
Write to the Pope. Write to President Trump. Bang the “Fraud Gong!” so loudly that it is heard throughout the world. Romp and stomp lawfully and peacefully and with a sure knowledge of who you are and how you are operating, so that you can fully and surely rebuff all “presumptions” otherwise.
And don’t be fooled when they offer recourse to the “Common Law”. Reply that the only “Common Law” applicable to you and yours is “American Common Law”. More on that in a separate post.
