The de jure Republic
22 April 2011

It's a hard slog for the Tea Party. Much was accomplished in the November 2010 elections and much more remains to be done in 2012 to even get into position to be able to start fixing the harm done by the Obama reign, not to mention the harm done by the progressive movement over the last 100 years.

There does appear to be a better way to return to the style of living created for us by the founding fathers. A life where the federal government has very little power and does not intrude into the lives of the people. A life where it is not necessary to obtain a license to drive your car or to get married or even to hunt and fish. A life without income tax where the government cannot take away your car or your house or your children. I am referring to the Republic known as the land of the free, not the Socialist Democracy that we currently live in.

It's not well known that shortly after the end of the Civil War the United States Republic was replaced with the UNITED STATES Corporation. This brought to an end the use of common law which was really only concerned with the harm caused by one person to another and excluded victimless crimes. Commercial law, mixed in with Admiralty law became the new basis for governing. Under this new way of doing things it became possible for the creation of codes and regulations that we are required to adhere to. Whole bureaucracies emerged to administer these regulations and to police the people and to levy fines for non compliance.

The substitution of the corporation for the Republic was commented on by Supreme Court Justice Marshall Harlan who opined in 1901: "Two national governments exist; one to be maintained under the Constitution, with all its restrictions, the other to be maintained by Congress outside and independently of that instrument. By exercising such powers as other nations of the earth are accustomed to, a radical and mischievous change in our system of government will result ... We will, in that event, pass from the era of constitutional liberty guarded and protected by a written constitution into an era of legislative absolutism."

The unalienable rights that were a hallmark of the old Republic became submerged beneath the privileges afforded to the people by the Corporation. The Constitution is no longer relevant in the courts of law and Congress seems to feel no compunction to abide by it either. A number of Amendments were added with no evidence that they were ever ratified.

In 1913 the Federal Reserve was established to control money. The Federal Reserve is not a branch of the federal government, it is actually a private corporation owned by International bankers. In 1933 income tax was introduced under the control of another private corporation, the IRS. Just like the Federal Reserve, the IRS is not a part of the federal government and is also owned by international bankers. With the abolition of Gold and Silver as the backing of the currency, the Federal Reserve Note was to be backed by the toil and energy of the American people.

The current government may be referred to as the de facto government (de facto: existing in fact whether with lawful authority or not.). The original government established by the founding fathers may be referred to as the de jure government. (de jure by right; according to law.)

So what can be done?. Quite simply, the de jure government has not been abolished, it has merely been abandoned. All that needs to happen is for the de jure government to be reoccupied.

On March 30 2010 de jure Grand Juries were seated in all 50 states and a declaration that the corporation was going to be replaced was served on all 50 Governors. The reoccupation of the de jure government has taken place under the name of "Republic for the united States of America".

The Republic for the united States of America is growing and currently de jure government reoccupation is underway at the county level. As it continues to grow, at some point the de jure government will take over from the de facto government. Who will join? Probably not the progressives who will be faced with the loss of 100 years of advancement towards their goal of a socialist state.

At some point there will be elections to replace the provisional members of the de jure government. Franklin famously remarked: "A Republic, if you can keep it". How long will we be able to keep it the second time around? More information is available here:
