New York Times Discovers Courts Have Been Privatized – 20 Years Too Late

Scales of JusticeThe New York Times has just completed a three-part investigative series on the evisceration across America of the U.S. Constitution’s guarantee of a right to a jury trial under the Seventh Amendment, which mandates: “In suits at common law, where the value in controversy shall exceed twenty dollars, the right of trial by jury shall be preserved, and no fact tried by a jury, shall be otherwise reexamined in any court of the United States, than according to the rules of the common law.”

Just as corporate prisons and corporate charter schools are proliferating across the American landscape with attendant horror stories, the doors to the Nation’s taxpayer funded courts have been largely closed to the average citizen. Consumers of everything from credit cards to phone service to nursing homes cannot obtain the product or service without…

Can you Feel it?

We’re now getting headline after headline of tension: tension between superpowers, tension in economic data, and tension in the markets.  Since the financial crisis, for the last 7 years, the Fed has been a regular “MacGyver”, holding the global financial ponzi together with crazy glue and baling wire.  They’ve pulled off some big stick saves, but it seems that gravity and inertia have finally caught up with them.

For over the weekend, the very nervous American and world markets received this surprise announcement:

Advanced Notice of a Meeting under Expedited Procedures

Yes, they’ve called a surprise, unscheduled meeting at the Federal Reserve, which is making the markets very, very queasy.  What’s the purpose of the meeting?  Well, it appears they’ve given us the low-down on what will be discussed:

Is this world out of control? Say what is right… what is wrong… Do I know this world at all?…

Is this world out of control
Say what is right what is wrong
Do I know this world at all
I think I do but then I don’t

I’m confused by what I see, I try to understand
But it makes no sense at all
I’m confused by what I feel, I thought that our love
Was something that is real

Does anyone know the truth we’re looking for
Can’t find it anymore
Does anyone know how to make me feel
For something that is real

So many things that I recall
When we were young just flying high
Can we turn our fate at all
I wish we could say, don’t you cry

I’m confused by what I hear, girl, it seems to me
We’re losing after all
I’m confused by what I feel, I thought that our love
Was something that is real

Does anyone know the truth we’re looking for
Can’t find it anymore
Does anyone know how to make me feel
For something that is real

Another day has just begun
Life goes on, there’s no return
How can I trust anyone
When honesty is such a dirty word

Does anyone know the truth we’re looking for
Can’t find it anymore
Does anyone know how to make me feel
For something that is real

Does anyone know the truth we’re looking for
Can’t find it anymore
Does anyone know how to make me feel
For something that is real

Thomas Deegan UPDATE, from Phil Hudok

UZA - people's courts, forums & tribunals:

The first thing to do is waiver one’s right to ‘recognition as a person’; when Thomas claimed to be the beneficiary that was when he granted her jurisdiction and she then immediately issued the fine;

The State created the ALL CAPS NAME so ABANDON IT in a case like this; declare it civilly dead; the only safe way in the sea amongst the leviathan and the sea monsters and the grottos of Neptune is act dead; that’s what we did; we abandoned our ‘person’, bank accounts, business, everything, living on alms now, repented our sins, got baptised in the wilderness as Jesus the Nazarene was; have a baptism card; and now the courts have accepted us as “brother thomas” and it’s a precedent; they tried to arrest us before and they had to let us go, meaning me, myself, “I”; we are a duality, not an ‘I’; we use the word ‘we’; I is just the ego, no heart…

Only a religious man still has any safety in the law of the sea military courts of admiralty where citizens are conquered legal fictions under occupation:

CIVILITER MORTUUS. Civilly dead; dead in the view of the law. The condition of one who has lost his civil rights and capacities, and is accounted dead in law. Rasor v. Rasor, 173 S.C. 365, 175 S.E. 545.

DEATH. The cessation of life; the ceasing to exist; defined by physicians as a total stoppage of the circulation of the blood, and a cessation of the animal and vital functions consequent thereon, such as respiration, pulsation, etc.
This is “natural death,” in contradistinction to “civil death,” and, also, to “violent death,” See those titles, infra.
Civil death. The state of a person who, though possessing natural life, has lost all his civil rights, and as to them, is considered as dead. Quick v. Western Ry. of Alabama, 207 Ala. 376, 92 So, 608, 609.
At common law, the extinction of civil rights and relations, so that the property of a person declared civilly dead passes to his heirs as if dead in fact. Holmes v. King, 216 Ala. 412, 113 So. 274, 276.

The “civil death” spoken of In the books, is of two kinds : (1) Where there is a total extinction of the civil rights and relations of the party, so that he can neither take nor hold property, and his heirs succeed to his estate in the same manner as if he were really dead, or the estate is forfeited to the crown. (2) Where there is an incapacity to hold property, or to sue in the king’s courts, attended with forfeiture of the estate to the crown.
Of the first kind, are the cases of monks professed, and abjuration of the realm; all the other cases are of the second kind.
Strictly speaking, there but two cases of civil death; those of a monk professed, and an abjuration of the realm. In re Erskine, C.C.A.Ind., 1 F.2d 149, 152. See, generally,
Chit.Crim.Law 723; Co.Litt. §§ 133, 199, note; Littleton § 200; 1 Bl.Comm. 132; Avery v. Everett, 110 N.Y. 317, 18 N.E. 148, 1 L.R.A. 264; In re Donnelly’s Estate, 125 Cal. 417, 58 P. 61, 73 Am.St.Rep. 62.
In New York a person sentenced to imprisonment is thereafter deemed civilly dead under Penal Law § 511. See Platner v. Sherwood, 6 Johns.Ch., N.Y., 118; Troup v.
Wood, 4 Johns.Ch., N.Y., 228, 260

EXTRA LEGEM POSITUS EST CIVILITER MORTUUS. Co. Litt. 130. He who is placed out of the law is civilly dead. A bankrupt is, as it were, civilly dead. International Bank v. Sherman, 101 U.S. 406, 25 L.Ed. 866.

INTESTABLE. One who has not testamentary capacity; e. g., an infant, lunatic, or person civilly dead.


RELIGIOUS MEN. Such as entered into some monastery or convent. In old English deeds, the vendee was often restrained from aliening to “Jews or religious men” lest the lands should fall into mortmain. Religious men were civilly dead. Blount.

CONSCIENCE, RIGHT OF. As used in some constitutional provisions, this phrase is equivalent to religious liberty or freedom of conscience. Com. v. Lesher, 17 Serg. & R. (Pa.) 155; State v. Cummings, 36 Mo. 263.

Liberty of Conscience
Liberty for each individual to decide for himself what is to him religious. Gobitis v. Minersville School Dist., D.C.Pa., 21 F.Supp. 581, 584. See, also, Religious Liberty, as defined below.

Religious Liberty
Freedom from dictation, constraint, or control in matters affecting the conscience, religious beliefs, and the practice of religion; freedom to entertain and express any or no system of religious opinions, and to engage in or refrain from any form of religious observance or public or private religious worship, not inconsistent with the peace and good order of society and the general welfare.
See Frazee’s Case, 63 Mich, 396, 30 N.W. 72, 6 Am.St.Rep. 310; State v. White, 64 N.H. 48, 5 A. 828.

The body of a freeman does not admit of valuation.

LIBERUM EST CUIQUE APUD SE EXPLORARE AN EXPEDIAT SIBI CONSILIUM. Every one is free to ascertain for himself whether a recommendation is advantageous to his interest. Upton v. Vail, 6 Johns. (N.Y.) 181, 184, 5 Am.Dec. 210.

Fractional-Reserve Banking is Pure Fraud, Part I – Jeff Nielson | Sprott Money

Thank you for the recap; blessings

Originally posted on wchildblog:

This is a commentary which should never have needed to be written. What is euphemistically called “fractional-reserve banking” is obvious fraud, and obvious crime. By its very definition; it transforms the banking sector of an economy into a leveraged Ponzi-scheme, and as with all Ponzi-schemes, there is no possible “happy ending” here.

Mathematically-based principles are often illustrated best through use of an extreme, numerical example. We have no need to construct any hypothetical extremes, however, when we already have real-life insanity, in our current monetary/regulatory framework.

Here it is important to note that in order to conceal the fraud, crime, and insanity of our present system to the greatest degree possible, the bankers hide their dirty deeds within their own convoluted jargon. Thus presenting “fractional-reserve banking” to readers requires some brief investment of time in definition of terms, starting with this term, itself.

Fractional-reserve banking evolved literally…

In Goldman Sachs Group Inc.’s vision of 2016, the dollar climbs, U.S. inflation expectations pick up and the currencies of Mexico and Russia advance.

The U.S. investment bank recommended buying the greenback against the euro and yen when it published its top trades for next year on Thursday.

The calls come after the U.S. currency rose versus all its major peers in 2015 as the Federal Reserve moved closer to raising interest rates, and the European Central Bank and Bank of Japan continued to add monetary stimulus.

Congratulations to the experts and attorneys on this.

The “War on Terror” is a hoax. It is the most powerful tool to wage war on civilians. This is as evident as the fact that the sun rises every morning and goes down in the evening. The so-called war on terrorism is nothing else than an instrument used by a tiny elite, whose desire is to return to neocolonialism and neoimperialism.

NATO has been waging war against civilians for decades. The government of Israel has been waging war against defenseless Palestinians. France and the United States have been bombing Yemen and Syria, where upwards of 220,000 innocent civilians have been killed.

In Iraq, the US and its allies murdered at least 1,000,000 people. In Afghanistan and Yemen, people are also bombed from the air as Obama uses drones to supposedly attack terrorists.

He is now being touted as the father of Scottish democracy, and could yet become an icon to rival the likes of William Wallace and Keir Hardie.

Muir ended up living the kind of boy’s-own story that could inspire a Hollywood movie. He was exiled to Botany Bay for 14 years in an outrageously rigged trial in 1793. He had been prosecuted for encouraging people to read Thomas Paine, who so far as the British were concerned helped to spark both the American and French revolutions.

Thanksgiving is a holiday where families gather to share stories, football games are watched on television and a big feast is served. It is also the time of the month when people talk about Native Americans. But does one ever wonder why we celebrate this national holiday? Why does everyone give thanks?

History is never simple. The standard history of Thanksgiving tells us that the “Pilgrims and Indians” feasted for three days, right? Most Americans believe that there was some magnificent bountiful harvest. In the Thanksgiving story, are the “Indians” even acknowledged by a tribe? No, because everyone assumes “Indians” are the same. So, who were these Indians in 1621?

In 1620, Pilgrims arrived on the Mayflower naming the land Plymouth Rock. One fact that is always hidden is that the village was already named Patuxet…
