The Big Con & The “Terms of the Gift” by Anna von Reitz

 

The Big Con


By Anna Von Reitz

For most people, contemplation of how our American Government has been commandeered by foreign con artists– British and Papal Agents– will be hard enough to deal with.
However, beyond this deplorable breach of trust and criminality is a far more common, pervasive, and universal con scheme –The Big Con — that underlies the world as we know it.
I will call it “The Pillar to Post Scheme”.  It is very simple —and it is the necessary condition needed to “divide and conquer”– as in divide and conquer all of us.
Basically, the Fraud Artists deliberately set up two sides to everything and use this mechanism to –as my Mother used to say, “Play both ends against the middle”.
Here is a stellar example of it:
We now know that in the Dark Ages, the Roman Catholic Church paid  Mohammed to popularize the Quran throughout the Middle East, apparently in order to create a “Pillar to Post” situation for itself– that is, to give itself something to fight against and an excuse to confiscate property from the Moors and the Jews.
This creation of religious controversy was the “necessary condition” for The Crusades and all the money, power, and property assets that the Church acquired as a result.
The whole enmity between Islam and Christianity was ginned up with malice aforethought– created, and not by accident.
We were all used by the “Belief Makers”— for their gain and our loss.
The Crusades depopulated Europe leaving the Church as beneficiary of most of the resulting largess.
We have all been “played” throughout history in exactly the same manner.
The Perps create two sides and we stupidly line up and choose one side or the other, as if all our choices suddenly dwindled down to that.
Statutory or Common Law?
Allopathic or Naturopathic Medicine?
New England Patriots or Dallas Cowboys?
Republican or Democrat?
Catholic or Protestant?
It’s all the same game– Pillar to Post.
One of the most obvious and vicious examples occurred during the British Protectorate in the Middle East.
They drew some lines on a map and labeled it “Palestine”.  Everyone inside the border of Palestine was this labeled a “Palestinian” and redefined as such.
Where, the day before, a peaceful polyglot culture of mostly Arabic and Jordanian people co-existed with a large contingent of European Christians and Jews— we now had all of them arbitrarily labeled as “Palestinians”.  Side One was created.
Then all the Perps had to do was create another “side” for the newly created Palestinians to fight against. This was accomplished by importing large numbers of Jews.
Pillar to Post.  A recipe for endless war for all of us and endless profits for arms dealers and “defense” manufacturers— also endless excuses for foreign governments to meddle in the region.
The Vermin are trying to do the same thing throughout the world.
The Masters of the Big Con are busy setting up multiple two-sided hate complexes– Muslims against Christians, Immigrants against Americans, Immigrants against French, immigrants against Germans, Jews against Everybody, Blacks against Whites and so on.
They are desperately promoting “sides” to everything, and if they have their way, we will soon be fighting each other over which brand of toothpaste we use.
Crest or Colgate?
The important point here is that we are all being played— conned, set up, used by these Vermin, who are sitting back and profiting themselves from our misery, and never even being identified as the Cause of it all.
Look at what the Church gained from the Crusades?  Most of Europe was de-populated, with the Church being the single largest beneficiary of the wealth and assets left behind.
The Church also gained the power of taxation — a power formerly held only by secular governments.
Remember that the Income Tax began as “Peter’s Pence” –a tax imposed by the Church on Parishioner’s income for the prior year, collected by the Inquisition and due April 15 of each year — to support the cost of The Crusades.
And what is the current Income Tax?
Technically, and top IRS officials will tell you this to your face- it’s a gift and estate tax.
They are taxing you for the privilege of gifting your estate to them, and you are presumed to be doing this voluntarily as a religious subscription to FDR’s “Holy cause”.
If the Bushwah got a quarter of an inch deeper, we’d all drown.
And what is this “Holy cause”?
War, eternal, perpetual, horrific, endless war to please Lucifer, the “god” who “loves the smell of burning flesh”.
You and millions of others are being defrauded every year out of large portions of your earnings to finance your own destruction and the destruction of other innocent people around the world.
Technically, it is being done by a web-like interlocking trust directorate linking 147 key corporations worldwide and via commodity rigging of the world currency markets by the euphemistically named “Exchange Stabilization Fund” — but in truth and in fact, in a greater sense, it is only possible because we have been fooled into choosing sides and falling for all this malarkey.
I have one “side”– the side of life and love and sharing and justice and passion and pleasure and abundance and freedom and peace.
These are the fruits of waking up and putting a stop to their Pillar to Post schemes and withdrawing all support from the organizations that promote these evils.
Are you ready?
The next elections held in this country need to be Public Elections for Public Offices—not Make Believe private corporate elections for political lobbyists.
Declare your political status on the public record and join your State Jural Assembly.
Wake everyone up and spread the word.
Be not like dumb driven cattle.
It’s easy.
Stop choosing sides.

The “Terms of the Gift”


By Anna Von ReitzA few days ago I wrote an article called “The Big Con” in which I described the treasonous manner in which you have been conscripted, used, and abused for the benefit of foreign powers as a result of treason by FDR and others.

I also made the apparently stunning revelation that the “income tax” is considered a “gift” tax on your ESTATE, which you and your Mother purportedly donated to the Municipal United States (as Trustee) for the benefit of the Territorial United States Government (the purported Beneficiary).  Here is the actual citation proving it:
United States Code (USC) Title 31, Money and Finance
Subtitle I, General
Chapter 3, Department of the Treasury
Subchapter II, Administrative;
§321, General authority of the Secretary
(d)(1). The Secretary of the Treasury may accept, hold, administer, and use gifts and bequests of property, both real and personalfor the purpose of aiding or facilitating the work of the Department of the Treasury. Gifts and bequests of money and the proceeds from sales of other property received as gifts or bequests shall be deposited in the Treasury in a separate fund and shall be disbursed on order of the Secretary of the Treasury. Property accepted under this paragraph, and the proceeds thereof, shall be used as nearly as possible in accordance with the terms of the gift or bequest.
(d)(2). For purposes of the Federal income, estate, and gift taxesproperty accepted under paragraph (1) shall be considered as a gift or bequest to or for the use of the United States.
And now, that you have proof that your ESTATE was supposedly “gifted” to these venal criminals while you were still a baby in your cradle and then  mis-administered by other venal criminals “in your behalf”, what are you going to do about it?
Sit there and smile while they rape and pillage the “infant decedent’s ESTATE”?   Did you or your Mother ever consciously and “voluntarily” gift your Good Name and Estate to the Territorial United States?  Ever?  No?  Well, get on your shit-kicking boots and say so. Stand up. Go after the bastards who have mis-represented you in this outrageous fashion.,
There is a lawful way to deal with this.  You form your Jural Assemblies, you elect your Land Jurisdiction Sheriff, you elect your Justice of the Peace, you set up your State Court and you arrest these undeclared foreign agents caught engaged in conspiracy against the actual Constitution and participating in extortion and racketeering on your soil.
You then inform the Territorial Government and turn them over for prosecution.
So what is so hard to understand about this situation?  You need to reclaim your “reversionary trust interest” in your own Good Name and ESTATE and return to the land and soil of your actual birth, see through all this legal chicanery, and start holding those responsible feet first to the fire.
These are criminals we are dealing with, both Territorial and Municipal, but when you put your foot down and organize your own courts they have no further recourse.  That has already been decided by their own United States Supreme Court in Milligan Ex Parte.   Your courts take precedence over THEIR courts.
So get on your feet and address this situation for yourself and for your country.
Do it now, before its too late.  Follow the instructions posted on my website — Article 928 — to re-stake your claim and join your State Jural Assembly.  They can be contacted via www.national-assembly.net and specific help can be accessed by contacting: contentmanager1@yahoo.com

Which Is The Real American Government?

Which Is The Real American Government? —
Unanswered Letters 2 — Reply to Pat Anderson
51m9Ug8dAGL._SX218_BO1,204,203,200_QL40_
By Anna Von Reitz
There has been a LOT of confusion in this process, Pat—- unavoidably so, with the
meanings of words being deliberately obscured and many facets of our history buried
in reams of the most boring verbiage on Earth.
But….here is the skinny of it all, as delved out from the public records we have.
The Forefathers established nation-states in each of the colonies. Nations are
political entities composed of members of Jural Assemblies— unincorporated
associations of people who join together for the purpose of defining and enforcing
local law; and in our case, that means the Common Law of the land, because our
nation-states and our jural assemblies are all land-based and this is the form of law
that our Forefathers chose to operate the land jurisdiction.
States are also political entities “standing for” those nations, created for the purpose
of administration of public works and trusteeship of public resources. So you have
the nation, a political entity structured as an unincorporated association of free
people acting as a Jural Assembly to define and enforce the law, and you have the
state, which is entrusted with providing public services and trusteeship of public
property which is owned “in common”.
The word “state” has another meaning, too, which is the geographic territory in
which the members of the state jural assembly live and over which their authority
extends.
A “county” is similarly structured. The word can stand for the organization charged
with administration of public works and trusteeship of public resources within the
boundaries of the geographic territory, or it can mean the literal geographic territory
in which the county jural assembly lives and over which their authority extends.
In the American System, generally speaking, townships make up counties, counties
make up states, and the political power vested in these organic states and their
living people forming their jural assemblies flows upward—- from the bottom up, not
the top down. Continue…

Swindle School 101

51qmgalnlkl._sx322_bo1,204,203,200_

By Anna Von Reitz

When I was young we had a rash of land ownership scams based on abuse of Quit Claim Deeds.  The fraud artist would offer to sell you this beautiful piece of land and deed it over to you via a Quit Claim Deed.
The problem was that the purported Seller never had any valid ownership in that land to begin with, so his Quit Claim was meaningless.
For only $50,000 I will gladly give you a Quit Claim to all the land I own in Florida.
The Municipal United States Congress has been doing the same thing.
They don’t actually represent you, but they let people assume that they do, and then they act as if they had the authority to do all the things they have done— when in point of fact, they don’t.
They have no valid interest— no land in Florida. So all their works and ways are invalid from the start and as if they never existed since 1860 with respect to us.  The technical legal term is: void for fraud.
We have our republics, if we occupy them.  We can, if we get moving and organized, “reconstruct” our Federal States of States and impose sanity on this asylum.
The complete fraudulent nature of this entire situation is made clear from the fact that the perpetrators endlessly describe their aberrant, renegade government of, by, and for corporations as a “democracy” — and they have never yet had a mandate of 51% of anyone voting for anything.
They proclaim that they are a democracy, albeit one without any mandate to exist.
That’s like claiming to be a milk cow without an udder, or a cat without claws, a bird without feathers, or a snake without scales. You might as well claim that your wife is a hat, as to claim to be a democracy without a mandate.
You need look no farther for any explanation or fact.  The entire house of cards falls apart on the first defect, and there you have two (2) defects that are completely unanswerable: (1) their United States Congress does not represent our United States; (2) their democracy can’t exist without a mandate, and so far as we can determine, they have never had a mandate to do anything at all.
Bottom line, the whole circumstance is nothing but a criminal Breach of Trust and Swindle owed immediate correction and cessation.

A Question for You.

Why are we letting 515 foreign political lobbyists “house sit” our entire country?

 

By Anna Von Reitz

I get asked questions about all sorts of things all year long, everything from, “Where’s the ketchup?” to “Why is soap slippery?” and “What can women do about leaky bladder syndrome?”  and “Why is the US Navy always in a bind?”
Okay, well, fair is fair.  I do my best to answer all your questions all year long.
Here is my question to all of you —- would you trust an unknown foreign lobbyist to house sit for you?
No?  Am I crazy?
Then why are we letting 515 foreign political lobbyists “house sit” our entire country?
Hmm?  It’s a fair question. It is nothing personal.  It certainly isn’t anything against Donald Trump, nor, for that matter, is this question “aimed” at anyone. It’s just the pure fact that for a century and a half we’ve been doing something that amounts to lunacy.
We’ve been letting paid political lobbyists run our government, instead of running it ourselves according to the blueprint our Forefathers established and gave to us.  And most of us have been so clueless that we haven’t even realized who those people in Washington are—-and in what capacity they are acting.
They aren’t acting as our agents and representatives at all.  That’s why they are so arrogant and non-responsive when we bring forward our questions and concerns.  That’s why they spend our money like drunken sailors.
We’ve got foreign lobbyists house-sitting for us, and they are throwing drunk-drug-sodomy-pedophile-you-name-it parties on our expense accounts every night of the week —- and when the neighbors (other countries) complain, the Pretenders throw the blame for this situation on us: “the Americans”.
Well, it’s not the “Americans”.  It’s the “US Citizens” guilty of this, and of war-mongering, theft, and a great many other crimes, too.
But at the end of the day —- it’s our house.
Now you’ve got the Municipal United States Government promoted by the “US CONGRESS” duking it out with the Territorial British and French Corporations.  For us, it’s all the same proposition — merely which unknown foreign political lobbyist is going to “represent” us and live in our house while we clean the pig sty.
Me?  I choose to live in my own house without giving free rent to any foreign political lobbyists.  I choose to operate my own government, thank you, very much.  And I invite you to keep that thought in mind.
In the days leading up to this January First, as we wave good-bye to the old Municipal Government and it’s agencies, there is a blessed sense of relief — but in order to make that relief count for something and ensure that we are not simply bamboozled once again —- we have to keep awake and on our toes.
Otherwise, they will just pass off “two of anything else” to keep the same old “pillar to post” scheme operating.  There’s a danger that they will just say, “Oh, don’t like a choice between Municipal and Territorial Government?  Okay, well, then, you can have a choice between two Territorial Governments, one run by a British Corporation and one run by a French Corporation…..”
And set up the same old game again.
Yes, we do have to finish the so-called “reconstruction” and put all the federal corporations and lobbies back in their boxes.
And there is nobody here to do it, but us.  Think about that as you toast in the New Year, and join me in devoting yourself to literally finish the job we’ve started.

A cabal is a group of people united in some close design together, usually to promote their private views or interests in a church, state, or other community, often by intrigue, usually unbeknownst to persons outside their group.

The term can also be used to refer to the designs of such persons or to the practical consequences of their emergent behavior, and also holds a general meaning of intrigue and conspiracy.

Association with Charles II

The term took on its present meaning from a group of ministers of King Charles II of England (Sir Thomas Clifford, Lord Arlington, the Duke of Buckingham, Lord Ashley, and Lord Lauderdale), whose initial letters coincidentally spelled CABAL, and who were the signatories of the Secret Treaty of Doverthat allied England to France in a prospective war against the Netherlands. However, the Cabal Ministrythey formed can hardly be seen as such; the Scot Lauderdale was not much involved in English governance at all, while the Catholic ministers of the Cabal (Clifford and Arlington) were never much in sympathy with the Protestants (Buckingham and Ashley). Nor did Buckingham and Ashley get on very well with each other. Thus the “Cabal Ministry” never really unified in its members’ aims and sympathies, and fell apart by 1672; Lord Ashley, who became Earl of Shaftesbury, later became one of Charles II’s fiercest opponents. The theory that the word originated as an acronym from the names of the group of ministers is a folk etymology, although the coincidence was noted at the time and could possibly have popularized its use. The group, who came to prominence after the fall of Charles’ firstChief Minister, Lord Clarendon, in 1667, was rather called the Cabal because of its secretiveness and lack of responsibility to the “Country party” then run out of power.

The Road to Resilience

tn_New Earth

Over the last decade, with the steady amplification of polarities, the rising intensity of external energies and forces, the challenges that we may have to face that test our character, test our mettle, seem to have been greatly magnified. We have often spoken about the planetary Dark Night of the Soul, and by observing the outer world, its clear that its in full swing. Over the past year, I have prayed countless times for guidance on what is the best process for helping people that are enduring extreme challenges, and painful transitions, when they have not been educated with strong coping skills or given proper support towards knowing the absolute necessity of cultivating resilience. We live in a culture of mind control to shape weak characters, and habits that weaken our mind, body and energy field, so that we are easily overwhelmed by dominating forces and challenges. Life on earth is not easy, it is a tough school of knocks in which we can learn a tremendous amount, especially now.

To survive these challenges, we have to look at life on earth as lessons and learning, looking at painful or negative events as an opportunity to see something that we did not see before, or to change how we perceive the world around us. As we learn from our life experiences and we can observe more clearly, we gain more emotional intelligence and the ability to explore our true purpose. Why did you come to earth now? All of us have things to accomplish on earth during the ascension cycle, and these experiences are deeply personal, intimate and unique to who we are. No other person can define the spiritual purpose for another, this is our responsibility to find out. To gain an accurate assessment of the reality we find ourselves, we will need to know ourselves very deeply. We may need to take off the rose colored glasses of denial in order to to see the accurate truth inside things, or we may need to find the light that does exist in the darkness while it sleeps, finding faith, love and acceptance in the spirit of humanity. At the rate of change and transformation we are enduring resilience is an important skill to cultivate for mental and emotional wellbeing.

Stability, Resilience and Tough Times

People may have gathered many delusions in their belief system about what it means to be happy and to feel pleasure, which is instant gratification that is portrayed by the mainstream media and consumptive modeling to make us believe in such fantasies and crafted advertisements as if they are real stories. Instant gratification teaches us little, we cannot learn about ourselves and the world we live in, if we believe instant gratification and selfish desires are the meaning of life. This is a luciferian and satanic narrative to keep us weakened and trapped in material delusions and Service to Self ego games.

Learning how to deal with difficulty, being willing to really see the truth of the matter, is much more productive than clinging to an illusion. To feel content and connected, it is required that you learn how to be strong and self reliant, that you pick yourself up after a fall, and that you know how to refocus your mind away from emotional sadness when you don’t succeed or get your needs met. One of the most important skills we need today, is to live in peace with unmet desires and needs. Attachments make us suffer greatly, and as such we should have preferences and not attachment to the outcome. This does not mean you give up, it means you never give up and look at life as lessons that build character and strength, you keep moving forward the best way you know how to in the moment.

How can you find the inspiration to persist instead of getting depressed or angry when things go awry, and to accept that they often will. Much of the time, life on planet earth is about conflict resolution and learning how to synthesize energies in the world of extremes, to neutralize polarity and return to peace.

How do people deal with difficult events that completely transform and change their lives? The death of a loved one, loss of a job, serious illness, criminal attacks and other traumatic events. These are all examples of very challenging life experiences. Many people react to such difficult circumstances with a flood of strong emotions and a sense of uncertainty and fear, bringing on mental paralysis or anxiety.

What enables people to generally adapt well over time to life-changing situations and stressful conditions? Navigating life’s challenges requires life skills. To develop life skills, you have to live through your life, gaining experience, gaining wisdom from hard earned lessons. This process involves resilience, it is an ongoing process that requires time and effort and engages people in taking a number of steps. Developing resilience is a personal journey towards maturity whereby each person will have to choose different approaches in order to build personal resilience. Resilience is an important energy building tool, being resilient also helps to keep healthy boundaries that build a stronger energy field, or aura.

Building Resilience Principles

  • Connect to your higher purpose and meaning in life.
  • Maintain perspective, look for the larger picture.
  • Find ways to implement your unique talents and strengths.
  • Be realistically optimistic, seek truth for accurate assessments.
  • Generate postive feelings and gratitude for what you do have.
  • Be open minded and flexible in situations, be willing to persevere.
  • Reach out to like minded souls, find connection with others that understand.

Learning from the Past

Focusing on past experiences and sources of personal strength can help you learn about what strategies for building resilience might work for you. By exploring answers to the following questions about yourself and your reactions to challenging life events, you may discover how you can respond effectively to difficult situations in your life.

Consider the following:

  • What kinds of events have been most stressful for me?
  • How have those events typically affected me?
  • Have I found it helpful to think of important people in my life when I am distressed?
  • To whom have I reached out for support in working through a traumatic or stressful experience?
  • What have I learned about myself and my interactions with others during difficult times?
  • Has it been helpful for me to assist someone else going through a similar experience?
  • Have I been able to overcome obstacles, and if so, how?
  • What has helped make me feel more hopeful about the future?

Emotional Intelligence

To cultivate resilience we will also need to understand emotional intelligence. Over the years, I’ve noticed a theme that the older you are, it may be easier to gain emotional intelligence, some people are very emotionally competent and managing emotions is easy for them. While others have to work a lot harder to tame unruly emotions, and need a different approach to clear pain body impulses. The more experience you have in exploring and managing emotional states, the deeper you know yourself, the easier it is to have emotional intelligence. Younger folks seem to struggle with this more in the current tumultuous terrain.

Emotional intelligence (EI) is the ability to monitor one’s own emotional state and be able to observe other people’s emotions and to distinguish between different emotions and identify them appropriately. When emotional states are able to be observed and discerned for their quality, one may use this emotional sensory information to help guide thinking, behavior and actions. All humans experience some emotional state that help guide our actions in life.

As our Emotional Intelligence increases, one will experience a variety of positive transformations in one’s life. Destructive behavior patterns of the past may transform into more positive behavior as one begins to solve the mysterious puzzle of human interactions and gain a quiet and confident understanding of them. Anxiety may yield to more peaceful, tranquil, and contented feelings as ones deeper emotional understanding increases. One starts to gain improved self-confidence and feel empowered, and less confused and frustrated with circumstances. Overall, one can transform from confused to confident; from clueless to comprehending and enlightened, from fragmented to coherent, from shallow to deep, and from oppressed to liberated, as one learns how to become the authentic self.

We must remember that we are in a war over control over the mind, and limitations and pain we feel are also created in the mind, which means we have the power to remove and clear them from impacting us. Our goal is to build strength in our inner world via inner reflection and meditation, which is building the energetic strength of our energy field, while learning how to observe and remain neutral to what happens in the outer world. We change the focus of power, giving power to our inner spirit and inner world, while removing external influences from having power over us. This takes some time to master.

How do we get there? Building Resilience over time.

Thus, this blog is dedicated to inspirations and discussion on building resilience and finding what works as a strategy for you. The energies in the outer world can be tough, harsh, painful and surreal. That is a fact, and it is what it is. The truth is that this does not have to disturb your inner peace, connection and purpose. May we share more about the quality of resilience, knowing we are in this together, and we all have to do our own inner work.

I hope this is helpful, and sending much love, strength and peace to all.

Love and GSF,

Lisa
