The Indivisible Republic In Law and Perpetuity
Secured ID: PN064950048RUSA
A Statement from the office of the President to address the issues of Delegated National sovereignty vs. prohibited State sovereignty, secession, and other unlawful activities.
The enemies of our American Republic have continued to work, from its birth, to hide the true worth of an American living in the true Liberty as a member and citizen of our constitutionally protected Republic. They have obscured and in many cases lied about our heritage and the value of this Liberty. They revise history to change the very fabric of our form of Government and the meaning of our law.
Article 4 Section 4 of the Constitution:
“The United States shall guarantee to every State in this Union a Republican Form of Government, and shall protect each of them against Invasion; and on Application of the Legislature, or of the Executive (when the Legislature cannot be convened), against domestic Violence.”
Even in our interim status I, along with anyone else that holds a de jure interim seat for the American people and has taken an oath to support the Constitution, has a duty to do just that. None of us can afford to stand idly by and permit unlawful behavior particularly by those who claim to be in the Republic for the United States of America. I will use every tool at my disposal to expose frauds that are being perpetrated on the American people. So called members of the Republic who are operating in law forms outside the Republic contrary to our Republican form of government are, by definition, not part of the Republic. Those who attempt to have their feet in two different camps cannot be part of the Republic and have, as a matter of law, removed themselves from Republic jurisdiction. Examples of this are those participating in common law courts, common law grand juries; and those declaring themselves “all powerful” self-appointed judicial authorities functioning outside of the Constitution.
Others may be attempting to exercise unlawful liens, and other unlawful financial remedies. This office cannot control, nor will it attempt to control the actions that people within the Republic set their hand to do. However, I will do all within my power to discourage anyone within the Republic from participating in any kind of activity that falls within the realm of financial redemption as is being taught by various entities across the nation. My focus and the focus of every American needs to be on the bull’s eye and that is getting our Republic back in full standing. All others attempting to manipulate the current financial system for gain will most likely find themselves in trouble with the de facto US Corporation today and may, in fact, be in violation of de jure laws as well. That game should only be played by those who are fully informed and able to defend themselves. So, as stressed repeatedly on Republic calls, I urge all Americans to abide by the statutes of the US Corporation and do not engage that corporation in any kind of dispute if at all possible.
Those espousing the theory of “Independent Nation States and secession from the Union” are by definition, not part of this Republic. I will not permit “cunning, ambitious and unprincipled men” to change our law form and alter the meaning of our laws and Republican form of government.
The question of secession from the Union of American States and State sovereignty (i.e. independent Nation States), have plagued our American Republic for far too long. The hypothesizers supporting these doctrines steep their ideas in complicated and confusing conjecture. So let’s set the record straight. The answer to both of these issues is very straight forward. It is not confusing, complicated or conjecture. It’s in the law.
The Constitution of the United States of America is the law of the land so let’s start there for the simple answer:
Article 1 Section 10
No State shall enter into any Treaty, Alliance, or Confederation; grant Letters of Marque and Reprisal; coin Money; emit Bills of Credit; make any Thing but gold and silver Coin a Tender in Payment of Debts; pass any Bill of Attainder, ex post facto Law, or Law impairing the Obligation of Contracts, or grant any Title of Nobility.
No State shall, without the Consent of the Congress, lay any Imposts or Duties on Imports or Exports, except what may be absolutely necessary for executing it’s inspection Laws: and the net Produce of all Duties and Imposts, aid by any State on Imports or Exports, shall be for the Use of the Treasury of the United States; and all such Laws shall be subject to the Revision and Control of the Congress.
No State shall, without the Consent of Congress, lay any Duty of Tonnage, keep Troops, or Ships of War in time of Peace, enter into any Agreement or Compact with another State, or with a foreign Power, or engage in War, unless actually invaded, or in such imminent Danger as will not admit of delay.
With these Constitutional prohibitions firmly ensconced in law it is clear for all to see that a State could not function in a unilateral capacity or seceding capacity. The phrase “No State shall…” carries the same weight as and means the same thing as “the Right of… shall not be infringed upon” or “shall not be abridged”. Very simply put when the founders said “No”, it means “No”. Webster’s 1828 dictionary defines “No” as follows:
1. A word of denial or refusal, expressing a negative, and equivalent to nay and not. When it expresses a negative answer, it is opposed to yes or yea. Will you go? It is frequently used in denying propositions, and opposed to affirmation or concession. ‘That I may prove them, whether they will walk in my law, or no ‘ Exodus 16:4. no in this use, is deemed less elegant than not, but the use is very general.
The 10th amendment is often used as an argument to prove secession and independent Nation State status are powers reserved to the States in law. So let’s look at the 10th amendment to see if this is true.
The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.
So based on the logic and authority of the 10th amendment we can determine the following to be true of the Constitution and law:
• Authority to act on behalf of the people and the States as a Sovereign Nation was delegated to the General government. Most of this is accomplished by Article 1 of the Constitution. Sections 8 and 9 should be paid particular attention to.
• Section 10 of Article 1 prohibits the States from acting in Sovereign authority as a Nation by prohibiting the powers to do so.
• The ability to act in the capacity of governance of and by the people is most defiantly reserved to the States.
The intent of the perpetuity of the Union was never in doubt by the founding fathers. The States were not totally stripped from their sovereignty; each State’s ability to function in the arena of sovereignty was to be practiced collectively as one body in the Senate. The Senate was established in this manner to prevent one State from dominating the National government and the other States. Each State was given equal access and an equal amount of power no matter how large or small they may be. It was necessary that some of the individual State sovereignty be transferred to the National government for the benefit of the entire union of States. The most evident reason expressed in the Constitutional Convention was to correct and prevent the defects of the previous Articles of Confederation from hindering the National government in its role to protect and defend the people such as happened during the Revolutionary War.
We do not get to pick and choose when or how we get to apply the use of the words “No”, “not” or “shall not” just because it does not allow our opinions and theories to match with law. James Madison, the architect of the Constitution, points out in Federalist # 45 that it was necessary for the States to cede or divest themselves of a limited amount of their sovereignty to the General government. This is exactly what is taking place in Article 1 section 10 of the Constitution.
James Madison Federalist # 45
“… In like manner, as far as the sovereignty of the States cannot be reconciled to the happiness of the people, the voice of every good citizen must be, Let the former be sacrificed to the latter. …”
After lengthy debates at the Constitutional Convention, this guarantee was agreed upon. In previous and subsequent Federalist papers Mr. Madison explains this perpetual guarantee of states rights by representation in the Senate. A thorough reading of Federalist # 45 in context will help to understand this concept. A study of the debates from the Constitutional Convention shows that this was a major stumbling block until it was mutually resolved that States would have to give up some of their individual State Sovereignty in order to correct the defects of the Articles of Confederation. Now, in accordance with law, if a State were to attempt to secede they would violate several of these Constitutional prohibitions.
The fact that the States can no longer act in a position of independent sovereign authority in regards to those authorities constitutionally prohibited by Article 1 Section 10 is not a matter for debate; it is established in law. Nowhere in the Constitution are there any provisions made for a State to resume in its pre-Constitutional status of sovereignty. Once the people of the State ratified the document and a sufficient number of the other States did the same, the issue of Statehood became permanent for the protection of all the States, but more importantly, for the surety of the people to self govern within the States. The remaining powers of governance were retained by the American people and the States. As Mr. Madison points out further on in Federalist # 45 these powers are “nearly limitless”. With good reason no State Constitution, as it was found to be in agreement with the National constitution, by Congress, has ever laid claim to those powers prohibited by Article 1 section 10 of the Constitution of the United States of America.
It is also worth mentioning that at the same time the delegates to the National convention were working on the Constitution, they were, in Congress, approving the Northwest Ordinance. The Northwest Ordinance was passed by that Congress on July 13th, 1787. Article 4 of the Ordinance reads:
Art. 4. “The said territory, and the States which may be formed therein, shall forever remain a part of this Confederacy of the United States of America, subject to the Articles of Confederation, and to such alterations therein as shall be constitutionally made; and to all the acts and ordinances of the United States in Congress assembled, conformable thereto. …”
When the first Congress brought the Northwest Ordinance forward in law (1 Stat 50) they were making sure that the issues of perpetuity and Sovereignty were applied to any new State joining the Union. The spirit and intent of the Constitution was being equally applied. Too great a price has been paid for our Constitution to be ignored by such divisive and uninformed arguments. If flaws in the document come to light then there are lawful means to correct it. Other aspects of the Constitution and organic law can be cited to support the position of National sovereignty and the perpetuity of the Union. No further explanation than that which we have brought forth in the Constitution itself should be necessary.
Let us set aside petty arguments and act as one people committed to the common cause of Liberty. Please read Dr. Benjamin Franklin’s address to the convention on September 17th, 1787 and read it thoroughly. We should all adopt the spirit of unity that Dr. Franklin was encouraging so that we can continue to restore Constitutional government, through our re-inhabited Republic, post heist.
The only parties who have gained ground from the idea of succession in the past are the same ones who fomented the Civil War, the “cunning, ambitious, and unprincipled men” that George Washington warned America about in his last farewell address. Not only did they manage to shelve the Republic, but have managed to place Americans under their thumb. In like manner, this issue was used by “nation state” advocates to cause harm to the newly re-inhabited Republic. See Re-Inhabited for the details.
