AG Cihak clarification on Matter 08222014-01
by: President James Buchanan Geiger
Ladies and Gentlemen in Republic,
Attorney General Cihak has issued a clarification on the issue of quorum and delegated authority (see below). I wanted to get this out to the People post haste since I am aware there have been some mis-interpretations of the Attorney General’s Opinion (Matter No. 08222014-01). I stated my opinions on the Governors/Building the States call Wednesday night as relates to quorum and the office of President Turner. Let me restate that again here.
Regarding President Turner:
In no way should the Attorney General’s Opinion be interpreted as an attack on President Turner as some have suggested. When President Turner was attacked by de facto agencies, they accused him of being a “self-appointed” President. The facts bear out that President Turner was in no way “self-appointed”. We all owe a great debt of gratitude and respect for President Turner. Personally, I have no doubt that if it were not for James Timothy Turner’s steadfast dedication to re-inhabiting the Republic, we would not have the Republic for the United States today. But neither should we be afraid of truth. The facts stated in the Attorney General’s Opinion cannot be denied, they are public record. Our Republic Attorney General presented those facts and conclusions in a logical well thought out manner. Making those facts available to the American People is a necessary part of the re-inhabitation process. To do otherwise would not be in the best interest of the Republic. One fact stands out. It is absolutely necessary for an Office Holder to take the proper oath of office. Until they take that oath, they have not occupied the office. That goes for de facto and de jure as well. Will President Turner always be our past President? Absolutely! Was President Turner the lawful President of the United States? Not according to the oath of office he was administered.
Regarding the issue of quorum:
The issue has to reside around the fact that we are an interim government and as a matter of fact do not have the delegated authority from 300+ million Americans to change laws or the Constitution on their behalf. Even in the first session when we had a lawful quorum of the re-inhabited interim Congress we understood that we were limited to working on issues that related to building the Republic. It will not be until Americans re-inhabit their Republic in mass and we are able to hold permanent elections that we will have a lawful quorum for lawmaking that affects the American People in mass. For now we are limited to the business of building the Republic. I have requested numerous times that Congress work on things that will help build the Republic. That is our task. We have no other at this time. To think or act otherwise would be to our detriment. We don’t only need to be concerned with answering these tough questions for our understanding within the Republic, but we also need to be sure we are able to hold our ground when dealing with enemies of the Republic. We owe it to our children and grandchildren to stay on task.
This is an informal letter. As always, my ear is open to the thoughts and opinions of the American People. Let not your hearts be troubled; working together, we have nothing to fear. With God’s help and direction we cannot help but prevail. God bless you all and God Bless the Republic for the United States of America.

Subject: Immediate need for clarification
Mr. Vice President:
It has come to my attention, and I agree with the concern, that in my official opinion rendered on September 7, 2014 (Matter No. 08222014-01) a statement from me could be misinterpreted as a subjective statement that I would like to clarify at this time.
A statement in my opinion read as follows:
“The Legislative branch is probably the most limited in its scope and function at this time, mainly due to the fact that we do not have a quorum of the States represented in either the Senate or the House of Representatives.”
Let me clarify this statement as follows:
The issue of “quorum of the States” that I referred to under “Power of the Three Branches of Government” was in reference to the permanent status of government and our ability to write laws and/or change the constitution and therefore has nothing at all to do with our interim status. Clearly there is limited delegated authority from the current green Republic states for the Republic Congress to conduct the business of the American People of building the Republic.
As I previously stated, I will draft and submit an addendum as soon as possible to my official opinion. I believe that there was an urgent need to address some concerns regarding that specific statement in my official opinion. This is why I felt that some clarification was warranted at this time. If you would please, pass this clarification on to anyone you feel appropriate.
Thank you for your time.
