Reinhabiting Congress and all the other government branches: local, county, state and federal.
Divergence between Constitutional republic founded on common-law, and corporate government since the Civil War. Video by USAF (Ret) Lt. Col. Sandy Miarecki, Ph.D.
According to Miarecki, the American Constitutional republic has been abandoned, not abolished and nothing that Congress or other branches of the federal government have de facto (in practice) pseudo-enacted since 1861, is de jure (by law or by right) lawful.
There has not been a functional Constitutional republic on American soil since 1861.
In other words, the American people have been having a collective out-of-body experience for 161 years.
The real United States government is still there, hibernating, offices vacant, and hidden under a blanket of legal veils, and so can be reclaimed or reinhabited by ripping off the layers that have hidden it from view since the Civil War and lawfully repopulating it.
From this viewpoint, the September 11 attacks and PATRIOT Act of 2001, the construction of the pharmaceutical surveillance state between 1969 and now, and the Covid-19 biomedicalized fraud, theft and mass murder criminal enterprise, can be seen as window-cleaning exercises through which the American domestic bioterrorism program history since 1969 has become more visible.
And the domestic bioterrorism program can been seen as another window-cleaning exercise, through which the history of deliberate demolition of the American Constitutional republic, since the Civil War has become more visible.
Another layer back goes to the Revolutionary War and King George III.
Lots of layers of glass between the People and the Truth, all systematically darkened — along with human perception capacities — by the Luciferians obsessed with pursuing their futile challenge to Jesus Christ’s eternal Kingship of the world.
August 2022 comment exchange
In August 2022, a reader commented:
I enjoy the detailed dive into the facts associated with the legal society and the developments of the codes and statutes that the federal and state governments have used to slowly, since the Civil War, boil the frog.
Have you had the time to look into the history of the various declarations that created our states, states-of-states, and various territorial, national, and municipal corporations and how that plays into the bigger picture?
Have you looked at the various constitution developments and the actual limit on the enumerated powers? Sometimes it is important to go back to the beginning.
The next piece is the deep dive into being a man or woman as a creation of the Creator and removing ourselves from the legal society completely and treating ALL trespasses as a man or woman and bringing forth our rights without intermediaries.
Teaching this basic understanding may be the only way out of the admiralty law and legal society.
I have only had time to do a very cursory review of those things.
I’ve decided to focus more on where things stand right now, and how to deal with the current situations, and less on the many centuries’ worth of prelude that led up to this moment.
It’s not that I don’t think the history is important. Clearly I do.
I once got teased for starting an investigative report about watershed pollution several million years ago when the geology was forming. [June 13, 2017 Bailiwick News: The battle for the Slab Cabin Run watershed and the political and ecological future of the Centre Region]
…Having done a lot of digging, it seems to me to be time to pick a point at which to stop digging into ever-more-granular levels of detail, since we already have a pretty good basic understanding of the steps taken since 1913 or so, and look more at “So what? What next?”
I realize that there’s a lot of room for disagreement on this issue.
Some readers believe it’s extremely important to lay out the maritime/admiralty law, the Crown, the British Accreditation Registrar (BAR) and so forth, and get lots of people try to file legal paperwork to reclaim self-ownership.
They may be right, but I find it hard to see how filing legal papers in newly-launched accreditation registries can create legitimacy. In other words, where does the legal authority of the newly launched registry come from? What’s to stop any recognized authority from just ripping up those papers as irrelevant?
Again, the counter argument is: “What’s to stop them ripping up the thing most people think of as the legitimate, morally-defensible Constitution and laws?”
Clearly nothing, because they’ve done it in the last two years. I can’t argue with that.
I’m making a judgment call for my own work, setting those things aside in a way, to look instead at what is still legitimate and widely perceived as legitimate within our current situation, and how can those pieces be brought up to the surface more, restored, reclaimed, re-loved, and put back into effect to the extent they were in effect in December 2019.
Because clearly, the powers that want to kill us and our legal system think that the things they’ve done to kill and discredit those laws since January 2020 were important to do.
I agree with them on that point alone.
There was something that mattered about our laws as they stood in December 2019. Those laws, if enforced, would have blocked many elements of the killing program and protected us.
Clawing our way back to our legal and moral status under those laws is what I’m trying to support.
Last week, I posted that starting in January 2023, I’ll be focusing on two topics:
Digging deeper into the history of when and how our Constitutional republic was covertly driven off the rails, along with current state-level efforts to establish legitimate governance and courts. This is, loosely speaking, the “Organic Constitution” issue that many readers have contacted me about, and that I covered briefly in June and October, and in passing in a few other posts. I’m starting my dig by reading Melvin Stamper’s Fruit from a Poisonous Tree and then sorting through some of the material cited by readers in their emails over the last few months.
Digging deeper into the financial crimes committed against the Constitutional republic and our People in recent decades, including the theft of $21 trillion through the US Department of Defense and US Department Housing and Urban Development, along with current state-level efforts to establish legitimate financial systems, including sovereign state banks and bullion depositories, and potentially claw back some of the stolen assets.
A reader responded by sending a link to a Truth for Health podcast:
Dec. 16, 2022 - Re-Inhabiting the Republic: What It Means for Your Freedom
I didn’t listen to that podcast yet, but I did click through and watch Sandy Miarecki’s 38-minute overview video.
Dec. 1, 2022 - How to save America - Reinhabited Republic, by USAF (Ret) Lt. Col. Sandy Miarecki, Ph.D.
It’s an extremely useful way to absorb the basic outline of the current situation and how it’s been brought about.
Summary of key points from the first 20 minutes of Miarecki’s presentation is below.
She provided links to supporting documents below her video.
In the second half of her presentation, she provided more information about the 1906 establishment of birth certificates; 1910 bankers meeting in Jekyll Island Georgia to plan the 1913 establishment of the private Federal Reserve Bank, personal income tax levy and Board of Internal Revenue (now IRS); and the 1935 Social Security Act.
Her presentation concludes with information about reinhabiting campaigns (Republic for the United States of America is one of several campaigns) that began in 2000 at the state and county level and gained traction by 2012, followed by federal government suppression, and a revival ongoing today.
Summary, Reinhabited Republic presentation by Sandy Miarecki
In 1861, through a series of executive orders, President Abraham Lincoln converted the United States from a Constitutional republic to a privately-held corporation, owned by foreign powers, called thereafter, the GOVERNMENT OF THE UNITED STATES, UNITED STATES INC or other formulations, but always written in all-capital letters to denote a corporate entity, rather than a sovereign nation.
The Dunn & Bradstreet corporate registry is among the evidence she cited. At the Dunn & Bradstreet corporate registry, the United States, US Senate, US House of Representatives, Department of Defense and other federal agencies, the US Supreme Court and state government offices are listed, with their "principals" including presidents, agency directors, SCOTUS Chief Justice John Roberts, state governors, state treasurers, state secretaries of state and other elected and appointed government officials, along with corporate office addresses corresponding with government office addresses.
Another piece of evidence cited is 28 USC 3002 at Section 15, which defines United States as
(A) a Federal corporation;
(B) an agency, department, commission, board, or other entity of the United States; or
(C) an instrumentality of the United States.
28 USC 3002 appears to have been passed by Congress and signed by President George HW Bush on Nov. 29, 1990, as the Federal Debt Collection and Procedures Act, part of the Crime Control Act of 1990 (PL 101-647, Section 3611 at 104 Stat. 4933).
Miarecki asserted that America never was a democracy, which the founding fathers hated because they always failed. She cited the aphorism:
A democracy is two wolves and a lamb voting on what to have for lunch.
A Constitutional republic is a well-armed lamb contesting the vote.
To unpack how the Constitutional republic was vacated in 1861, Miarecki listed the three main branches as understood by most Americans: the executive branch (President and Vice-President), legislative branch (House and Senate) and judicial branch (Supreme Court).
She said at the founding of the country, there were 65 House representatives and 26 Senators filling the corresponding number of seats in Congress. At that time, the Supreme Court had 11 members, and fluctuated thereafter until the 9-member composition was established in 1869.
By April 1861, there were 34 states, 234 Congressmen, 68 Senators and nine Justices. Every eligible citizen in the country was first a citizen of the state in which he lived, and second a citizen of the United States.
Miarecki said there was popular debate about whether states could lawfully secede from the Union, and then 11 states did so, taking their Congressmen and Senators with them, and leaving behind a "rump Congress" of 180 Congressmen and 46 Senators representing the 23 states remaining in the Union. When they left, they also left vacated seats: 54 vacant House seats and 22 vacant Senate seats.
She said that President Lincoln took the position that secession was not lawful; once states had joined the Union, they could not leave. As such, he interpreted the acts of the 11 states as criminal insurrection and rebellion.
However, there was no written law to support his position. After the war, SCOTUS ruled on the issue in Texas v. White, 1869, to the effect that states could secede, but only with approval of the House and Senate, plus ratification by 3/4 of state legislatures.
In 1861, Lincoln construed the Congressional seats of seceded states as vacant and the missing representatives and senators as abstentions. Factoring their votes as abstentions, rather than reducing the size of the chambers, made it difficult to achieve majority votes on legislation during the war.
At the start of the Civil War, Lincoln therefore declared martial law by executive order, without seeking or obtaining ratifying votes by House, Senate, states or People, to cover any territory where armed conflict was occurring, and in the entire territory of the seceded states.
In the same way, Lincoln suspended habeas corpus and the right of the accused to speedy trials, thus authorizing indefinite detention.
And in the same way, he established a new "Executive Government."
Essentially, Lincoln simply redefined the remaining elected representatives as no longer subordinate to the Constitution, but as corporate officers subordinate only to war financiers. Miarecki illustrated the principle by depicting House and Senate seats as squares, and the human beings serving as representatives and senators as faces. Lincoln created a mirror set of seats in a new corporate organizational chart, removed the faces from the Constitutional organizational chart, and transferred them into the corporate organizational chart.
As evidence for these claims, Miarecki cited Lincoln's Preliminary Emancipation Proclamation of Sept. 22, 1862, and the Emancipation Proclamation of Jan. 1, 1863. These two documents referred, for the first time, to "the executive government of the United States, including the military and naval authority thereof."
Miarecki said that Lincoln planned to convert the country back from a corporate entity to a Constitutional republic at the close of the war. But because he was assassinated in April 1865, and his successor, President Andrew Johnson maintained and then built up the corporate structure without restoring the Constitutional republic, American soil has maintained a corporate governing system from 1861 to the present.
As the Southern states re-entered the Union after the war, their elected representatives occupied the corporate government seats, not the Constitutional government seats.
So, Miaracki argued, the Constitutional republic has been abandoned, not abolished [Another source who reviewed a draft of this summary added that there is no congressional record of the Articles of Confederation being repealed, supporting Miaracki’s position].
The Constitutional seats still exist, but have been vacant for 161 years.
Such that none of the federal government's acts over the last 161 years have been lawful.
The next key event, she said, was the unlawful passage, by the illegitimate corporate Congress, of the 14th Amendment in 1868. The effect of the act was to strip men and women of their status as citizens of the states in which they lived, and leave them with only a degraded form of federal citizenship as collateral property used to secure the federal government's war debt, as owed to the international banking cartels whose private owners had financed both sides of the Civil War.
At about the same time, the illegitimate corporate Congress passed legislation requiring states, counties and municipalities to also incorporate as business entities, for the purpose of engaging in contracts with the US government corporation.
As evidence, Miaracki again referred to the Dunn & Bradstreet registry, and argued that governors and other elected officials are informed of their status as corporate officers, not Constitutional representatives, as soon as they take office.
Last piece for today:
To help the US government successfully extract the wealth of the American people to pay off war debt, the international war financiers proposed a global agreement between the Vatican of the Catholic Church in Rome, the bankers in the City of London, and the United States corporation in the District of Columbia, through which the three city-states — the only city-states in the world at the time — would form a single enterprise with the Pope serving as Chief Executive Officer, a representative of the City of London serving as the Chief Financial Officer, and the President of the United States serving as Commander in Chief of the armed forces.
To facilitate the proposed business agreement between the three parties, Congress passed the Act of 1871. It was repealed in 1874, but portions were carried over through other acts to create the "organic" (meaning first) municipal, corporate government entity occupying the 10 square miles of the District of Columbia.
That's another mechanism through which the illegitimate corporate Congress unlawfully and treasonously, but de facto, converted all American citizens living on American soil — black and white equally — from citizens subject to a common-law, Constitutional legal jurisdiction, to chattel property purportedly subject to maritime and corporate legal jurisdiction.
Today is, among other saints, the feast day of St. Zeno of Nicomedia.
Thinking about him, and about Miarecki’s historical account, reminded me of Zeno’s dichotomy or Race Course paradox. Paraphrased, this philosophical thought exercise is about how a runner approaching the end of a race can never get there, because first he must traverse half the full distance. But before he can get to the halfway point, he must run halfway to the halfway point, and because these intervals can be divided in half infinitely, he can never get to the finish line. In the strange world of thought experiments, it turns out he can’t even start the race.
The insane journey from pseudo-legalized covert enslavement, poisoning and mass murder to the destination of Constitutionally-protected lives, liberties and property — while working against the powerful forces who are obsessed with capturing, controlling and killing all of us — often feels to me like running in a Zeno’s footrace toward an infinitely-receding goal.
Miarecki’s overview also provides another example of the There-But-Not-There or Legal-But-Not-Lawful paradox exemplified by the American Domestic Bioterrorism Program.
baba_gbb put it succinctly in a comment at On the powers and limitations of illusionists.
I keep saying ... all they’ve actually got is a Potemkin village of cardboard cutouts (with smoke and lights and mirrors and lotsa fear-porn talking heads talkin’ fear porn 24/7).
We just gotta keep kicking down and punching through the cutouts to reveal the criminals on the other side.
I’ll keep digging into the source material and writing about the mechanisms by which the Luciferian globalists covertly transmogrified our Constitutional and common-law based, land and soil jurisdiction system into an unconstitutional, corporate, statutory law, maritime jurisdiction system. As I wrote a few weeks ago, my background from 2005-2019 prepared me for this work, so I have a surprisingly (God working in His mysterious ways) helpful set of foundational cognitive maps with which to tackle the journey.1
At this early stage, the only statement Miarecki made in her video that I find unpersuasive, is her argument that this happened because "we were asleep."
Maybe some of us have been "asleep." But if so, only in the most euphemistic sense.
We’ve been repeatedly ambushed, beaten, knocked out, bound, gagged, drugged, sometimes blindfolded, sometimes subjected to audiovisual torture, and imprisoned by the actions of those who conducted and today maintain the stealth overthrow.
We’ve endured a mugging and are in the very early stages of helping each other loosen the ropes, spit out the gags, take off the blindfolds and find ways to break free.
…My background from 2005 until late 2019 was in the rights-based organizing framework pioneered by the Program on Corporations, Law and Democracy (POCLAD) and the Community Environmental Legal Defense Fund (CELDF).
POCLAD and CELDF developed extremely solid analyses of corporate preemption of self-governing authority, through the dual-track state legislative chartering systems in which business corporations hold and exercise far more legal privileges and powers than municipal corporations (towns and cities) and the people who live in those places. Corporate and government rights preempt individual and municipal rights.
POCLAD and CELDF traced the legalized corporate takeover in the United States back to Dartmouth College v. Woodward, 17 US 481 (1819), and further to the Dutch East India Company and the original corporate charters that formed the geographic boundaries of what we now call states…
