Before we start, I would like to ask you a question: Have you heard the term Sovereign Citizen recently? Chances are if you are watching a network TV news channel or reading a network owned newspaper or web site then you have started to see this term used more and more when describing extreme cases of selfishness, abuse of law and justice and just plain stupidity.
Whereas three or even five years ago, the term Sovereign Citizen was nowhere to be found and similar examples of selfish, stupid and abusive behavior was painted as the acts of various alleged “freemen” or “patriots” or “anti-government militia”. So how come network controlled media has started to use the label Sovereign Citizen when painting these kinds of extreme acts?
Well, before we answer why this might happening, let me ask you a second set of quick questions beginning with the question of whether you believe any one group of society should be above the law and immune from prosecution even if they completely disregard their sworn duties and obligations? I hope you said “No” as any case where one group is given such special privileges to be above the law and unaccountable is when the Rule of Law and the Golden Rule that “all are equal” ceases to exist.
What about justice? Do you believe that people should be legally and financially bound to debt as slaves from the time of their birth? And do you believe all your rights should be taken away from you even if you behave as a good and contributing member of your society and never seek to injure or harm others? Again, I hope you said “no” to these questions as any system of complete slavery, disregard for rights or prejudice is a system without any legitimacy whatsoever.
Finally, what about due process? Do you believe people should be considered guilty before even the accusations against them are decided? Or that people can be charged and never shown an originating accusation or the form of law by which such charges were derived? Or do you believe that people who determine the innocence or guilt of people be allowed to change processes, or forms at will to ensure there is absolutely no relief other than those who have extreme wealth or connections to power? I hope once again you said “no” to these questions for such abuse of due process means no court can be regarded as a legitimate forum of law, nor those who sit in judgment be regarded as valid judges or magistrates.
The concept of “Sovereign Citizen” explained by the men who invented the idea
Why are these questions relevant when we speak of the Sovereign Citizen Phenomena? Well, let me answer this specific question with the words of some men that invented the very concept of “Sovereign Citizen” and the importance of recognizing all citizens as equal and sovereign. Please bear with me, I will only read the first two paragraphs of what they wrote on the subject and what they meant:
When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.–That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, –That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.
The relevance of the words of the founders of the concept of sovereign citizen
Now these men went further in their documents to make sure that absolutely no official, or agent, or independent contractor or media commentator could be so stupid or idiotic or malicious or untruthful as to disregard their intentions and get away with it in the long run.
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.
Why did they write these words? Because all men and women are equal before the law and there was to be no such thing in the United States as first class or second class citizens. In other words, all are sovereign citizens. In other words from the very foundation of the United States the inventors and founders of the concept of Sovereign Citizens ensured that all are Sovereign Citizens.
A further issue to point out is that these men were very clear in making certain no one could abuse their intention to restore the Rule of Law, Justice and Due Process. They did this by prolific writing and mountains of documents from the Federalist Papers, Letters, Judgments, Statutes and all kinds of insights.
Some might have said that all this paper was an overkill but these men, these founders of the concept of Sovereign Citizen, these founders of the United States of America, these founders of a higher form of democracy who sought to be a light for the world would disagree with anyone who thought the defense of the Sovereign rights of all citizens was a waste of time or was an act of terrorism or was an illegal act – especially if such an idiot was presently employed who made such claims by a corporate agency pretending to honor the United States Constitution.
There is no time, there is no case where compromise to evil in law, where granting immunity and destroying the golden rule that “all are equal under the law” is a positive and necessary step. Anyone and everyone who has ever argued for the diminishing of rights of all men and women has been and is a liar, a thief, an imposter and a pirate.
The founders of the concept of Sovereign Citizen more than two hundred and thirty years ago knew this. That is why they tried to write documents that would overcome the corruptions, the lies and the manipulations of men without conscience and mentally ill with mind virus.
What a Sovereign Citizen is not
Having explained what the founders of the concept of Sovereign Citizen meant when they invented the idea more than two hundred and thirty years ago, let us briefly outline what a Sovereign Citizen is not.
By the very definition of the term, as it was intended by the founders of the United States of America, a Sovereign Citizen cannot be someone who has a flagrant disregard to the true Rule of Law under the Golden Rule, or of Justice or of Due Process.
A Sovereign Citizen is not one who is severely drug addicted, or seeks to fleece people out of money, or steal their homes, or lock them out of their homes, or demands something for nothing; and
A Sovereign Citizen is not someone who is abusive or violent to positions of assumed authority, even in the face of tyranny. The greatest weapon of the Sovereign Citizen against evil is passive and lawful resistance – knowing that even the worst system of tyranny cannot survive without consent; and
As it is, most of the people labeled by the media as Sovereign Citizens are not in anyway shape or form comparable to the intentions and founders of the United States of America as the exemplars of what it means to be a Sovereign Citizen.
Why then is the media networks using the term Sovereign Citizen?
Why then does the media keep taking extreme cases of people who clearly are in contradiction to the very meaning of the words Sovereign Citizen and the actions required of a Sovereign Citizen and then falsely mislabel people as such? One reason is because they were told to do that .
But another reason is because the people who told them to use the term are hoping that if enough extreme cases are painted as Sovereign Citizens and if enough out of context quotes are aired, then the public will form the impression that people who read history, statutes and laws are “whackos” and people who ask questions about lack of due process and accountability of government and law are conspiracist “nut jobs” and anyone who talks about the absence of any real Rule of Law or Justice are seen as anti-government, anti-social terrorists.
It is a pretty audacious and arrogant strategy based really on the hope that the plan to continue to dumb down the schools will also lead people to stop thinking and reading- like reading the Declaration of Independence, or reading the United States Constitution or the United Nations Declaration on Human Rights or completely ignore the latest Apostolic Exhortation known as Evangelii Gaudium by Pope Francis.
In fact the reaction by Nihilism Central being Georgetown University and the insane rebel Jesuits of the United States and Washington has been to sever ties with the Vatican and move its embassy outside the walls, than be accountable for the restoration of the Rule of Law, or Justice or Due Process.
At the same time, banks in the United States and elsewhere in the world have responded to the call for more accountability and honesty by pushing harder than ever to be more corrupt with the Bank of America even promoting the securitization of trustees, that offices of trustees can be purchased and sold – in arguably one of the most blatant attacks against The Bible and the Rule of Law and Law itself since the beginning of civilization.
So what do we do midst such madness?
So what do we do midst such madness, such arrogant ignorance and such disregard for any decency? We do what all men and women who love the law and who trust in a higher power have done throughout time. We stand our ground and peacefully resist by the promotion of withdrawal of consent, by reminding people of what the words In God we Trust means and the concept of the Golden Rule and Rule of Law.
We prepare and perfect our Will and Testament and the management of our Estate as we have spoken about in these very blogs. We prove that we are lawful and respectful members of society and that we respect the proper Rule of Law and Justice and Due Process and reject the falsities of pirates and liars and moneylenders who seek to continually destroy and attack our communities.
