Why we are marching

<!–

We undertake the Long March to Rome to remember the countless millions of indigenous worldwide who for 500 years have suffered and died through the wars, forced resettlement, disease and conquest justified by two papal orders or bulls, called Romanus Pontifex (1455) issued by Pope Nicholas V and Inter Caetera (1493) pronounced by Pope Alexander VI.

These papal bulls are the “blueprints” for the Age of Discovery since they granted explorers the absolute right to:

“…invade, search out, capture, vanquish, and subdue all Saracens and pagans whatsoever, and other enemies of Christ wheresoever placed” and to “reduce their persons to perpetual slavery”.

Incredibly, neither of the two papal bulls has been officially revoked to this day.

Spiritual Reclamation Begins: ITCCS Special Report

Published on Sep 22, 2013

A breaking news communique of the Sunday September 22 Equinox Gathering in Rome to spiritually disestablish the Vatican and all unjust authorities. Also, reports from common law court actions around the world. Issued by The International Tribunal into Crimes of Church and State. See http://www.itccs.org . Dated September 22, 2013.

Spiritual Reclamations across the world inaugurate new “Jubilee Revolution” – Debts, laws nullified

Traditional elders, shamans and clergy gathered near the Vatican today and in at least six other countries to inaugurate a new spiritual regime that nullifies and replaces the Church of Rome, as well as “ungodly laws and economies”.

Invoking divine authority, the closed ceremonies culminated twenty one days of global prayer and fasting on behalf of “all of the victims of a false church and its spirit of lies and murder”.

In Rome, nine elders held a sacred circle ceremony near the Via della Conciliazione opposite St. Peter’s Square to “complete the cycle of exorcism begun here in 2009”, according to participant Brother Ciaran Ui Niall of Wexford, Ireland, who stated during the opening proceedings,

“The Roman papacy has been found guilty in the courts of man because first it was condemned by God. Divine judgement knows no compromise or evasion, and says, ‘I the Lord God am against the false shepherds and shall destroy them and their evil.’ And so we witness today to the spiritual truth that the rule of Rome is over, for God has dissolved all such man made authority on earth, and all unjust rulers, whether religious or secular.”

Similar ceremonies occurred in London, Cork, Amsterdam, Boston, Vancouver and eight other cities, and were accompanied by the occupation and seizure of catholic churches by citizens bearing common law warrants.

The Spiritual Reclamation was accompanied by a global media statement that clarified the full dimension of the Sunday Equinox Jubilee action. It reads in part,

“On August 4, 2013, the corporate entity calling itself the Church of Rome was lawfully disestablished and publicly declared to be a global criminal body, without standing or authority.

Today, on Equinox Sunday, September 22, 2013, the same criminal entity has been spiritually disestablished, declared abomination, anathema and anti-Christ, and banished from the world. Christians are now free to be faithful to Christ alone within their own self-governing congregations, separate from the corporate apostasy of the papacy and mediated religion. For God’s law lives in every human heart and not in institutions.

Likewise, the fallen social and economic global order instituted historically by the corporation of the Church of Rome is similarly disestablished according to the Jubilee Leviticus Laws of Renewal and Equality within the new Jubilee congregations we are forming, as a sign of the new creation.

The world and the land shall rest from injustice, greed and usury. All debts and interest rates are cancelled, and the land and its wealth is placed in common so that all people may dwell in peace and equality, as God wills it to be. Let all people rally to this new Jubilee order under the direct supremacy of God and Natural Law.”

In Ireland, Canada and America, catholic clergy have already announced their plan to disaffiliate from Rome and establish their own national, congregationally-based churches, according to Not in Our Name (NON), a Dublin based group. A similar movement has begun in the American mid-west in a Common Law Congregational Movement, which seeks to base Christian churches on Common Law rather than be tied to the state or admiralty and canon law.

NON and the Jubilee congregational movement can be contacted at thecommonland@gmail.com.

An Irreverent Critique of the “Apostolic Letter”

Would you Trust Al Capone to Police himself? Unmasking the latest Papal Deception: A Critique of the “Apostolic Letter”  – by Kevin D. Annett

Always provide your opponents with what they wish to see, and by that means, deceive and control them; for thus will they see what you appear to be, and few of them will experience who you really are.                                                                                                                             – The Prince by Nicolo Machiavelli

A legal judgment is void if the court that rendered judgment lacked jurisdiction or acted in a manner inconsistent with due process.                                                    
-Black’s Law Dictionary, 6th ed., citing Klugh v. United States, D.C.S.C

There is nothing more important for any Prince than appearing to be religious. 
– Machiavelli
………………………

In 1529, Martin Luther described the Vatican’s gestures at “reform” as “farts laced with perfume”; and one of his lampooning publicists depicted the oxymoron of papal reform with a cartoon of fat cardinals brushing the dust off the statues in St. Peter’s Basilica.

Things don’t change much in Rome. Five centuries after Luther, the tried and true method of all despots in damage control – of tightening the reins of power while feigning liberality – is unfortunately alive and well.
Ask Jorge Bergoglio.

The Jesuit pinch hitter from Buenos Aires was brought in to the Augean filth of Rome to do exactly such a spin, as he was trained to do in the 1980’s as the chief public relations gnome for the butchers of the Argentinian military junta. And last July, as the appropriately benign-looking “Pope Francis the First”, Bergoglio issued something he calls an “Apostolic Letter Motu Proprio” concerning “the jurisdiction of Judicial authorities of Vatican City State in Criminal Matters”.

Wow. Sounds impressive, eh? From the sounds of that, you’d almost think that the Roman Catholic Church is a legitimate government, and has some kind of legal jurisdiction when it comes to matters of crime.

But illusions aside, this latest effort at statue-cleaning at the Vatican reminds me of something an Irish priest told me last May in Dublin:

“Ratzinger was a dinosaur, but this new Pope is another Borgia”

Nicolo Machiavelli was the hired scribe for the Borgias, those Renaissance thugs who ran Rome and the papacy with their friends and relatives. Nicolo even dedicated his book The Prince to Cesare Borgia, the throat-cutting illegitimate bastard of Pope Alexander VI: another cutie who raped his own daughter Lucretia and signed the Bull Inter Catera that carved up the world between Spain and Portugal and gave the green light to global genocide.

I figure Pope Francis is a real devotee of Machiavelli, since he’s following the guy’s advice to rulers to the letter. For the basic message of The Prince is that law and morality is a fiction and does not apply to popes and kings; and that such rulers must use every means of deception, violence and crime to hold on to their thrones while simultaneously making themselves seem pure and just.

Which brings us to Bergoglio’s Apostolic Letter, over which some of our especially naive colleagues are rapturing like it’s the heralding of the dawn of a new age.

Uh uh. Quite the opposite, in fact.

The Letter does three things: defrays criticism of the Vatican, avoids prosecution for defying the Law of Nations by co-opting that Law, and silences and criminalizes internal whistle blowers and critics. And it does so by expanding the power of church courts and canon law to prosecute and jail such critics in order to place a final lid over any information leaks in the church: including any reporting of child rape and trafficking.

All of this stench is perfumed, of course. As Machiavelli says, use the language of your opponents and thereby disarm them. For the opening sentence of the Apostolic Letter reads,

“In our times, the common good is increasingly threatened by transnational organized crime …”

Indeed. Transnational organized crime, like the Vatican itself, which on August 4 was declared to be a transnational criminal body under international law because of the very policies enunciated by Bergoglio in his July 11 Letter: policies that aid and abet, among other things, human trafficking, rape, and money laundering for organized crime.

It’s always absurd when the Al Capone mobsters call for law and order, and announce new policies to police their operations more justly. The Chicago hood occasionally sponsored official “crime investigations” by his bought and paid for judges, who always rendered a verdict that never touched the operations of their paymaster.

But Jorge Bergoglio has done Al Capone one better: he is appropriating the very international legal conventions that have convicted him and his church in order to solidify the legal untouchability of the Vatican Incorporated for its proven crimes against humanity.

The Apostolic Letter does so simply, by announcing that as of September 1, 2013, the “Vatican legal system” will incorporate the provisions of international law, including the Geneva conventions on war crimes, the convention on the rights of the child, and other laws prohibiting racial discrimination and torture.

Sounds good? Think again, people. For the power to apply such laws within the catholic church will, as of September 1, be completely in the hands and under the sole jurisdiction of church law and Vatican courts: precisely like the internal “legal commissions” within the Mafia that regulate mobster behavior.

In effect, the Apostolic Letter states that all of those international human rights laws have no binding authority on the church unless the church makes it so, since the power to enforce those Conventions now lies not within secular or international courts, but solely within church courts.

By thus placing his church outside the jurisdiction of any other court, the Pope has told international law to go screw itself.

Even worse, anyone who reports any of these crimes within the church now faces even stiffer punishment for doing so. The Letter states,

“I establish that the competent Judicial Authorities of Vatican City shall also exercise penal jurisdiction over crimes committed against the security, fundamental interests or the patrimony of the Holy See”.

Penal jurisdiction means the power to prosecute and jail. And the same jurisdiction applies as well to any leakage of information from the church, including, under standing church laws like Crimen Sollicitationas, the reporting of child rape and trafficking.

Let me say that again: it is a crime under Catholic law to report the rape of a child.

I am the State, declared Louis the 14th of France. But Pope Francis has now proclaimed, I am the Law.

I guess that is an inevitable development for any megalomaniac regime that considers that one man is the link between God and all humankind. In that sense, poor Jorge deserves not a papal tiara but a strait jacket. But since this particular lunatic is armed with trillions of dollars, a few billion followers, and now the power to appropriate and ignore international law – well, folks, things do not look good.

But of course, remembering Machiavelli, that’s just the appearance they want you to see.

The truth is that the Apostolic Letter is an act of extreme desperation, arising from a collapse of the authority of the Vatican, as in 1870, when the army of nationalist leader Giuseppe Garibaldi abolished the papacy and its secular power. In response, Pope Pius IX unilaterally declared himself and his papal descendents to be “infallible”, without even getting a majority of his Cardinals to agree with him.

Not coincidentally, the same pope declared soon afterwards that he was God, announcing in 1872,

“I alone am the successor of the Apostles, the Vicar of Jesus Christ. I am the Way, the Truth and the Life.” (That’s funny; I thought Jesus said that)

Such bizarre and sudden claims of absolute authority are always made by those without any, as any tottering despot knows. Jorge Bergoglio has simply pulled another Pius act, now that the Vatican Bank is facing insolvency and his predecessor Joe Ratzinger and various complicit Cardinals are evading arrest within the walls of the ever-besieged Vatican.

And Jorge Bergoglio himself is next on the block. He has already been declared a war criminal in absentia by the International Common Law Court of Justice. He has also been named in cases before the courts in Argentina and Spain concerning his complicity in the death of Argentine citizens during the Dirty War. Jorge is hardly the one to be lecturing the world about the law.

Distractions like the Apostolic Letter are not the issue at all, ultimately, in the face of the enormity of the crimes of the Vatican. This is especially true once we recognize the fictitious nature of that religious corporation’s claims to be any kind of governmental or judicial body.

And besides, have we all forgotten that the Vatican and its church has already been indicted as an international criminal organization? Such a body, according to the United Nations Convention on the subject, has lost its authority and right to exist.

In reality, Catholic “Canon law” has no lawful authority, and not only because it has been lawfully convicted as a global criminal conspiracy. For canon law is merely a set of internal corporate statues that do not negate common law rights or the laws of other nations, as the Apostolic Letter claims to establish.

A bunch of crooks have no jurisdiction over themselves just because they say they do.

If the rest of us are too stupid or frightened to tell the Al Capones and the Jorge Bergoglio to get stuffed, and to arrest and prosecute their sorry asses, then let our fate be on our own heads.

If I Could Tell the World Just 3 Things

http://spiritualeconomicsnow.net/?p=405

CROFTmarybk2

1.  There is NO government. “Governments” are only corporations. What almost everyone calls ‘the government” is a de facto government.  The Governor General, herself, admitted this. We are in anarchy; i.e.: NO government. The employees are not authorities; they are servants who have stolen from us. Quit sending letters which only prove you believe that they have authority over you and that they are the de jure government –neither of which is true. Quit saying “the government” when what we really mean is, “a private, foreign, belligerent, for-profit corporation whose intent it is to diminish the supply of cash on the planet, so that we kill one another in order to get our mitts on it.”  Corporate “laws” apply only to fictions and we were conned into believing, for far too long, they had something to do with us. Quit believing you are a fiction.

2.  There is NO ‘money’, only credit and debt. The credit is ours; the debt is theirs. When they speak of “public debt”, they mean the debt that is payable to us, the private, by them, the public. They owe us. We are the principals; how could we possibly be in debt when we are the ones providing ALL the value?! Quit saying, “my debt” and “I owe…”  We do not own what we think we own, so, if we don’t own anything, how can we owe anything. The debt belongs to the ones who stole the credit from our trust and the cash from our labour. Cash cannot ‘pay’ debt; only credit can ‘offset’ debt. Cash and credit can NOT be used interchangeably. As all debt was created on paper, so, then, all debt can be discharged with other pieces of paper –NOT cash. Their taking our cash is solely to reduce our ability to function in their world.  There is something drastically wrong with a system in which, as Vic said, “The man who built the chair can’t afford to buy the chair.”

It seems as if the only way to remove ourselves from this enslavement is to remove ourselves from their fraudulent system. Maybe we ought to give back every single paper –BC, SIN, licences, property titles– we have in our possession (render to Caesar the things that are Caesar’s) and use the Statement of Birth in order to get what we need and want. Werner Erhard said, “Don’t confuse the menu with the meal.”  Quit paying for the menu and exchange it for the meal.

I hear talk of going after the “inheritance/ patrimony/ birthright/ entitlement”.  Knowing that this has been stolen from us and trying to get it back is tantamount to yelling at the crook who just stole our car, “Hey! Come back here!”  It has zero impact. Why would they give it back? Under what conditions?  Do we set up a private trust?  Why would we want it back. Their entire system is an illusion. Chasing an illusion only keeps us in the illusion and keeps the illusion alive. So, do we continue to try to beat them at a game where they not only make but also change the rules? Or do we hand over the damaging “citizenship” and walk away from the game?

3.   The Pope’s Apostolic Letter: Because the frauds believe their sole authority is the Pope, if I were being harassed by any entity for my cash, I would send a letter to the man behind the fiction/ corporation/ ‘person’, suggesting he quit, with a copy of the Apostolic Letter issued by Pope Francis, July 11th, 2013.  http://www.vatican.va/holy_father/francesco/motu_proprio/documents/papa-francesco-motu-proprio_20130711_organi-giudiziari_en.html

All employees of corporations, all of which are established under the Roman Curia, are no longer immune. So, ALL employees of courts, governments, law enforcement, banks, collection agents, IRS, CRA, etc., as of September 1st, 2013, will be held accountable for crimes against humanity which include: refusal to settle accounting; and, prosecution of fraudulent claims.

I’d be sure to have him mail me a certified copy of his Oath of Office –his swearing of which I hereby accept, two pieces of his government-issued ID, and his Public Hazard Bond, listing the underwriter’s name, address, and policy number, which, by law, he is under obligation to do. (see: CCC §337). He is to govern himself accordingly. (A few people have already prevailed with this.)

This is all that is necessary to end the fraud, as we can now go after the men and women who continue to harm their fellow man. Please, let them all know that they will be going to civil court and then to jail, if they don’t quit their jobs.

Why are we told, “Anything you say can and will be used against you”? and then, in court, they ask, “How do you plead to the charges?”  How absurd!  I’d shut up, except to ask, “Doesn’t the prosecutor have to prove his claim?” and “Isn’t the one who charged the trust the trustee?” Going to court, voluntarily, as defendant, only proves we still believe in their authority. Insane! Filing docs is asking for the court’s authority to validate our claim that it has no authority –even more insane.

As I have written, on and off for a decade:  1.  If the solution isn’t simple, it isn’t accurate;  2.  There is no solution TO commerce, IN commerce; and,  3. The only way to win is not to play. We must get out of this maniacal Commerce Game. Quit giving them your attention, time, energy, and emotion.

This is my interview with Karen Hudes the Whistleblower from the World Bank. This is a wide ranging discussion covering her time at the World Bank and what led her to blow the whistle on the corruption she found there. In the process her view of the worldwide corruption widened to include governments and the overall monetary system.

We discuss the ‘backwardization’ of gold, the manipulation of the dollar and the need to replace the current fiat system with a gold or asset backed currency and the plans of the cabal to create chaos and institute the NWO.

Janet Napolitano [Homeland Security] has resigned effective September 1, 2013.

The Most Holy Francis issued an Apostolic Letter on July 11 and effective September 1, 2013 that effectively stripped away the immunity of all judges, attorneys, government officials and all entities established under the Roman Curia [hint: All corporations are established under the Roman Curia]. All of these “persons” can now be held accountable for war crimes, crimes against humanity, [hint: Divine Spirit is humanity], for the unlawful restrictions of the liberties of the divine spirit incarnate; [we call that Eternal Essence Inbodied -AK] for failure to settle the accounts; for continued prosecution of claims already settled, etc.

APOSTOLIC LETTER 

ISSUED MOTU PROPRIO
OF THE SUPREME PONTIFF
FRANCIS
ON THE JURISDICTION OF JUDICIAL AUTHORITIES OF VATICAN CITY STATE
IN CRIMINAL MATTERS

In our times, the common good is increasingly threatened by transnational organized crime, the improper use of the markets and of the economy, as well as by terrorism.

It is therefore necessary for the international community to adopt adequate legal instruments to prevent and counter criminal activities, by promoting international judicial cooperation on criminal matters.

In ratifying numerous international conventions in these areas, and acting also on behalf of Vatican City State, the Holy See has constantly maintained that such agreements are effective means to prevent criminal activities that threaten human dignity, the common good and peace.

With a view to renewing the Apostolic See’s commitment to cooperate to these ends, by means of this Apostolic Letter issued Motu Proprio, I establish that:

1. The competent Judicial Authorities of Vatican City State shall also exercise penal jurisdiction over:

a) crimes committed against the security, the fundamental interests or the patrimony of the Holy See;

b) crimes referred to:
– in Vatican City State Law No. VIII, of 11 July 2013, containing Supplementary Norms on Criminal Law Matters;
– in Vatican City State Law No. IX, of 11 July 2013, containing Amendments to the Criminal Code and the Criminal Procedure Code; when such crimes are committed by the persons referred to in paragraph 3 below, in the exercise of their functions;

c) any other crime whose prosecution is required by an international agreement ratified by the Holy See, if the perpetrator is physically present in the territory of Vatican City State and has not been extradited.

2. The crimes referred to in paragraph 1 are to be judged pursuant to the criminal law in force in Vatican City State at the time of their commission, without prejudice to the general principles of the legal system on the temporal application of criminal laws.

3. For the purposes of Vatican criminal law, the following persons are deemed “public officials”:
a) members, officials and personnel of the various organs of the Roman Curia and of the Institutions connected to it.

b) papal legates and diplomatic personnel of the Holy See.

c) those persons who serve as representatives, managers or directors, as well as persons who even de facto manage or exercise control over the entities directly dependent on the Holy See and listed in the registry of canonical juridical persons kept by the Governorate of Vatican City State;

d) any other person holding an administrative or judicial mandate in the Holy See, permanent or temporary, paid or unpaid, irrespective of that person’s seniority.

4. The jurisdiction referred to in paragraph 1 comprises also the administrative liability of juridical persons arising from crimes, as regulated by Vatican City State laws.

5. When the same matters are prosecuted in other States, the provisions in force in Vatican City State on concurrent jurisdiction shall apply.

6. The content of article 23 of Law No. CXIX of 21 November 1987, which approves the Judicial Order of Vatican City State remains in force.

This I decide and establish, anything to the contrary notwithstanding.

I establish that this Apostolic Letter issued Motu Proprio will be promulgated by its publication in L’Osservatore Romano, entering into force on 1 September 2013.

Given in Rome, at the Apostolic Palace, on 11 July 2013, the first of my Pontificate.

FRANCISCUS
