POSTERITY - BETRAYED
A poem by: Barbara (Norris) Martin, De Jure Citizen
Barbara Martin v. U.S. et al.
Cause # 97-1065 U.S. Supreme Court
Cause # 97-20051 U.S. Court of Appeals 5th Circuit
Cause # H-96-CV-2563 U.S. District Court
Many thinking Americans realize there is something terribly wrong in the USA, but they cant quite put their finger on just what it is, or how it came about. It seems that most of the legislation that is being passed by the U.S.Congress, as well as that of the State Legislature, is contradictory of the United States Constitution (1787), the Bill of Rights (1791) and the Texas Constitution (1845), and a constant erosion of our God given, constitutionally guaranteed, Unalienable/Inalienable Rights.
The question is, are we ready to "draw our line in the sand", and take our stand to reclaim our liberties for our own sake and for the sake of our Posterity as our ancestors did? If we dont get involved, and Im not just talking about the ballot box, there will be no "Blessings of Liberty" for ourselves or our Posterity. However, we must fight our battle within the lawful, constitutional system. If we are going to be successful in reclaiming our Unalienable/Inalienable Rights, and getting the government back to operating within the perimeters of the Organic Constitution, we must first properly diagnose the problem so we can apply the solution. To arrive at a diagnosis and solution, we must first find the answers to some questions in light of the House of the 5-Ws. Who, what, where, when, why, and how.
Number 1: What are the founding documents of the USA, and who were the founders?
Section 1. The founding documents of the USA are (1) The Declaration of Independence (1776), (2) The Articles of Confederation (1777), (3) the Preamble to and Constitution for the United States of America (1787), with the Bill of Rights (1791). The founding documents of Texas are the Preamble to and Constitution for the Republic of Texas (1836), and The Preamble to and Constitution for the State of Texas (1845). We must read and study these documents.
Section 2. According to the Preamble to the Constitution for the United States of America (1787) the founders were "We the People". The historical fact is that "We the People" were the same "One People" of the first paragraph of the Declaration of Independence and of the Articles of Confederation, and the union they agreed to was perpetual. They were all free, white, and of the original stock of Europe. These were the same people who picked up their musket guns and fought and won the Revolutionary War against King George (of England) to secure their God given, Unalienable/Inalienable Rights for themselves and their "Posterity". They were Christians, recognizing, acknowledging and accepting Jesus Christ as their Lord, the one and only God and their only Sovereign, and the Nation they ordained and established is a Christian Nation.
The United States Supreme Court has stated "In our system, while sovereign powers are delegated to the agencies of government, sovereignty itself remains with the people, by whom and for whom all government exixts and acts." Yick Wo v. Hopkins, (Cal.1886), 6 S.Ct. 1064, 118 U.S. 369, 30 L.Ed. 220. The people referred to here are the "One People", who are "We the People" spoken of in the first paragraph of the Declaration of Independence (1776), and the Preamble to the Organic Constitution for the United States of America (1787).
Authority: United States History: to 1877, College Review Series, by Nelson Klose and Robert F. Jones. From Page 4, we learn, "Columbuss voyages to the land he thought was the Indies were the result of the medieval and early modern expansion of Europe. Since at least the year 1000, Europe had been steadily expanding its political influence and commerce. The Spanish were the first to introduce European culture to the Americas; the Portuguese, French, Dutch and English would come later".
As far as the Indians are concerned, on Page 9, "Most scientists agree that they are descendants of migrants coming from Asia by way of the Aleutian Islands." (Therefore, they are not Europeans.) The various tribes of Indians were all Sovereign Nations.
On Page 40, "After 1697 New England began to engage in the "triangular trade" involving slaves from Africa. The molasses from the West Indies was converted into rum in New England and in turn was exchanged for slaves on the African coast. The slaves were taken to the West Indies and the trading cycle would be repeated. The Middle Colonies also engaged in this trade". (Therefore, as you can readily see, the African slaves were not European, and therefore, neither are their descendants.)
On Page 48, we read "Basically, American society and culture was English. However, the special conditions of the frontier and the opportunities for the common man in a rapidly expanding economy developed self-confident individualists. The three main people (Other then the English) to come to America in colonial times were Palatine Germans, Scotch-Irish and African slaves". Page 47. Other non-English European immigrants included the Hugenots, (French Protestants), the Dutch, a few Swiss and Swedish settlers".
Number 2: What type of government did they create?
They created a Republic, not a Democracy. Have you ever wondered why our Pledge of Allegiance reads "I pledge allegiance to the flag of the united States of America, and to the Republic for which it stands, One Nation, indivisible, under God, with Liberty and Justice for all" ?
Number 3: Who created the 14th Amendment, and for what purpose?
The U.S. Congress, via the 14th Amendment, created a "citizen/subject" status, which gave equal/civil rights (privilege) to the "freed (enfranchised) slaves" and others who could not qualify to be Sovereign/Citizens. These people could not qualify to be Sovereign/Citizens of the Republic because they were/are not members of the "Posterity" of the "One People" spoken of in the first paragraph of the Declaration of Independence. Therefore, Congress created a Democracy for them! We have a government within a government and a constitution within a constitution, beginning with the 13th amendment.
How can 14th Amendment citizen/subjects (which is a statutory creation of congress) exercise sovereign powers through elected representatives, or in person, when Congress created their citizenship? Remember, Maxim of Law, the created is never greater than the creator. Could that be the explanation why a federal judge could put a freeze on the voters decision to not give free education or medical attention to illegal aliens, and the President of the U.S. could send a representative to Mexico to apologize to the President of Mexico for what those voters in California did?
Number 4: What is the De Jure Citizenship, and where did it come from?
De Jure Citizenship is the heritage (birthright) of the Posterity of "We the People" who ordained and established the Constitution for the United States of America, to secure the "Blessings of Liberty" to themselves and their "Posterity". Congress could not create a citizen/subject status for the Posterity because the Posterity held DeJure Citizenship as their birthright. They inherited the Citizenship status of their parents and ancestors.
Number 5: How did it happen that so little is known about the De Jure Citizenship?
Little by little, year after year, the De Jure Citizenship has been "presumed" to be the same as the 14th Amendment (de facto) citizen/subject status, and the Unalienable/Inalienable Rights secured by the U.S.Constitution (1787) have been "presumed" to be the same as the equal/civil rights of the 14thAmendment. However, equal does not mean same.
Number 6: Why is it important to trace our genealogy?
We have to trace our genealogy to know who we are and where we have been, in order to know where we are going and how to get there? If you are white, and your ancestors were from Europe, you are probably a De Jure Citizen, because our ancestors didnt divorce their relatives back in Europe after the Revolution, they just dissolved the political bands connecting them to Europe. However, you are "presumed" to be a 14th Amendment (de facto) citizen/subject until you produce evidence to prove your true status.
After determining who we are, we have to learn to check the definitions used in the statutes, and the definitions in Blacks Law Dictionary to determine which statutes apply to us. The definitions contained in the Statutes and Blacks law Dictionary are the ones used in court. When we go into court, if we are using words defined by Websters Dictionary, we are certainly going to lose, because the judge is using the definitions of those words as defined by Blacks Law Dictionary, where certain words have different meanings. We must learn how to assert our Unalienable /Inalienable Rights in court, as well as in our everyday life. Every Citizen in America should have a copy of Blacks Law Dictionary, as well as Websters in their home. They can be purchased at your local bookstore.
We, the Posterity, have been betrayed by the very government that was "ordained and established" by our ancestors, to secure our "Blessings of Liberty". Our Pastors and Churches have also been deceived and coerced into signing onto the 14th Amendment via the 501 (C)(3) tax exemption form of the Internal Revenue Service, which, according to the State, makes the Church subject to be controlled by the state and/or federal government. This is a direct violation of scripture, which states Jesus Christ is the head of the church. Ephesians 1:22; Ephesians 5:23; Colossians 1:18. KJV. Most Pastors have also betrayed the people, because they enjoy the "amenities" too much to admit they have been deceived, repent and lead the church to dissolve the "corporation". All Pastors should read and meditate on Ezekiel 34:7-10. Also, 2 Corinthians 6:14 applies to Pastors and Churches as well as lay members.
However, in Matthew 5:13-16, Jesus tell us "Ye are the salt of the earth: but if the salt have lost his savour, wherewith shall it be salted? it is thenceforth good for nothing, but to be cast out, and to be trodden under foot of men. Ye are the light of the world, A city that is set on a hill cannot be hid. Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house. In II Chronicles 7:14, "If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and forgive their sin, and will heal their land."
The United States Supreme Court has stated "In our system, while sovereign powers are delegated to the agencies of government, sovereignty itself remains with the people, by whom and for whom all government exists and acts." Yick Wo v. Hopkins, Cal.1886, 6 S.Ct. 1064, 118 U.S. 369, 30 L.Ed. 220.
The people referred to here are the "One People" spoken of in the first paragraph of the Declaration of Independence, who are the same "We the People" of the Preamble to the Organic Constitution for the United States of America (1787), who "ordained and established" the above stated constitution (which in turn created the government) to secure the "Blessings of Liberty for themselves and their Posterity.
WARNING: If you decide you are going to play the game, you had better make up your mind to learn the rules and learn how to apply them. This government (federal, state and local) has become a tyranny and will not surrender usurped power willingly or easily. Before you jump into this Fight for Freedom, it is imperative you fully arm yourself with knowledge and training in American History, Constitutional Law, Statute Law, Criminal Law, the State and Federal Rules of Civil and Criminal Procedure, and how to fight for your Rights in court.
In 1993, I joined an association called "WAKE UP AMERICA", in order to learn the above. Our association is headed up by Dr. Clifford William, who has a Doctorate of Jurisprudence. At "Wake Up America", one of the first things I learned was how to find the legal definitions of words found in most government documents, and who they apply to. This is where I first learned about Blacks Law Dictionary.
Upon learning the legal definitions of these words, I realized that I had been led all my life to believe that Social Security Numbers, Motor Vehicle Operator Licenses, ZIP Codes, and other government documents were mandatory, when in fact they are not mandatory to the "Posterity". God gave us Unalienable /Inalienable Rights, and as long as we dont cause harm to anyone else or their property, only God can take those rights away. (Maxim of Law, "The created is never greater than the Creator.") Our ancestors fought a Revolutionary War to secure those Rights. Read the Preamble to the Constitution for the United States of America. (1787)
With further study of law, it became apparent to me that I had been deceived and coerced by federal, state and local Government Agencies into unknowingly, without full disclosure, signing such documents (adhesion contracts) such as, application for a "Social Security Card", application for a "Drivers License", "Voter Registration Card", etc, etc, and that such documents redefined me as a "statutory creation of Congress" instead of acknowledging me as a member of the "Posterity" - the body politic that "ordained and established the constitution" which created the government. This problem stems from congress redefining the word "person" as used in the 14th Amendment, and the government not disclosing that a significant change in my Citizenship status would occur by my signing "ordinary" documents that use the statutory definition of "person", as well as some other words congress has redefined.
In Redlands Foothill Groves et al. v. Jacobs et al., the court stated, " 'Seeking out' what exists already is not defining." Redlands Foothill Groves et al. v. Jacobs et al, 30 F.Supp. 995, page 1004, District Court, S.D. California, Central Division, (1940)
One thing that had always bothered me was, shortly after my birth, my parents received a "Notice of Birth Registration" from the "Department of Commerce" certifying the registration and preservation in the office of the State Registrar of Vital Statistics at Austin, Texas of my birth. This was not a birth certificate, and I am not commerce. So, after much prayer and study, I considered the cost, and drew my line in the sand. I traced my genealogy, obtained Certified Government Documents to prove it, typed it in legal description and filed my Positive Identification in the County Courthouse. I then used my Positive Identification to obtain a Passport, as a "National", without a ZIP Code or a Social Security Number.
On February 10, 1995, I filed suit against the federal, state and county governments in the State District Court to correct and clarify my Citizenship status as De Jure with Unalienable/Inalienable Rights, and not de facto with civil rights. I had each page of my Positive Identification certified by the County Clerks Office and filed a copy as evidence in the suit I filed to prove who I am. If you are going to claim something in court, you had better be ready to prove what you claim.
One of the ways you can prove to yourselves how our heritage has been stolen from us is by studying the Census Records of your own family. Please go to you local Genealogy Library and study the Population Schedules and Census Records. Start with the year 1920 and work your way back. If you have never done this before, ask the librarian to show you how to start your genealogy.
Notice that on the 1850 "Population Schedules", the People are "enumerated" as "Free Inhabitants", and on the "enumeration" of 1860 the People are still "Free Inhabitants". However, on the "enumeration" of 1870 and 1880, the People are "enumerated" as "Inhabitants". What has happened to the "Free"? Could it have something to do with the fact that the South lost the War for Southern Independence? Do you suppose that slavery was not the "real" issue of the war" ? Could it be that "Sovereignty" and "Unalienable /Inalienable Rights" was the real issue of the war? Please read and study carefully the Declaration of Independence. Also notice the W in the block next to the names. That means white. On the earlier "enumeration's", it was not necessary to list the race, because there were separate records kept, called the "slave schedules".
We are told the "enumeration" records of 1890 were nearly all burned by a "fire". So, moving on to 1900, please note several changes. The word "Inhabitant" is no longer used. Instead we see "Twelfth Census of the United States, Schedule No. 1. - Population. The 1910 and 1920 "Census" are the same. Also, we are told the "Enumeration" and "Census" records are "frozen" for 70 years, supposedly to protect our privacy. Therefore, our ancestors had no way of knowing they were (according to the government) no longer "Free Inhabitants".
Recognizing that approximately 2/3 rds of the U.S. Congress and State Legislators are made up of lawyers, it would behoove them to read and meditate on Luke 11:46 and Luke 11:52. Of course, many of them dont believe in Jesus or the Holy Bible anyway. Thats one of the reasons were in this mess. Perhaps you might like to point this out to your politicians.
We will all soon be receiving many little campaign pamphlets, etc, from the local hopeful politicians who are running for office, and I for one, am committed to sending said hopefuls questionnaires, via certified mail, return receipt requested, asking them certain probing questions, and publicizing their answers, or lack of. Lets see if we can separate the wheat from the chafe and hold their feet to the coals!
Unalienable Blacks law Dictionary defines Unalienable as "Inalienable; incapable of being aliened, that is, sold and transferred." And Inalienable rights, as "Rights which can never be abridged because they are so fundamental."
Posterity According to Blacks Law Dictionary, the definition of Posterity is "All the descendants of a person in a direct line to the remotest generation." And the definition of descendant is "Those persons who are in the blood stream of the ancestor." By the way, the word person, as used here, is the same as defined by Websters Dictionary of 1828, which is a human being, and NOT the one defined by the 14th Amendment, which is a statutory creation of congress.
Blessings of Liberty Blacks Law Dictionary defines Liberty as The Liberty guaranteed and protected by constitutional provisions, denotes not only freedom from unauthorized physical restraint, but embraces also the freedom of an individual to use and enjoy his faculties in all lawful ways, acquire useful knowledge, marry, establish a home, and bring up children, worship God according to the dictates of his own conscience, live and work where he chooses, engage in any of the common and lawful occupations of life, enter into all contracts which may be proper and essential to carying out successfully the forgoing purposes, and generally to enjoy those privileges long recognized at common law as essential to the orderly pursuit of happiness by free people." In Meyer v. State of Nebraska, 43 S.Ct. 625 at 627, the U.S.Supreme Court ruled "The established doctrine is that this liberty may not be interfered with under the guise of protecting the public interest, by legislative action which is arbitrary or without reasonable relation to some purpose within the competency of the state to effect. Determination by the Legislature of what constitutes proper exercise of police power is not final or conclusive but is subject to supervision by the courts."
Christian Nation The Supreme Court has ruled, "These and many other matters which might be noticed, add a volume of unofficial declarations to the mass of organic utterances that this is a CHRISTIAN Nation." Holy Trinity v. United States, 12 S.Ct. 511 at 514 to 517, 143 U.S. 465 to 472 (1892); See Vidal v. Mayor, 43 U.S. 127, 2 How. 127, Updegraph v. The Commonwealth, 11 Sergeant & Rawle, Pennsylvania Supreme Court Reports 400; The People v. Ruggles, 8 Johnson New York Common Law Reports 290 at pages 294 & 295; Joseph Story and the American Constitution, J.McCellen, at page 139, Oklahoma Univ. Press (1971); (Letter of John Marshall to Jasper Adams, May 9, 1833); The State v. Chandler, 2 Del. 553 at page 555 and 556 (1837); Bell v. The State, 1 Swan (Tenn) 43 & 44 (1851); Strauss v. Strauss, 3 So.2d 72 at 728  (1911); and Wylly v. Collins, 9 Ga. 223 at 237  (1851)
slaves As regrettable as the institution of slavery was, I would remind those who are always eager to place the blame for slavery squarely on the shoulders of the South, lets get out facts straight. Slavery was forced on the American colonies by England. Remember, before the Revolution, the colonists were "subjects" of England. By the time of the Revolution, it was already deeply entrenched in America, with a large part of the economy based on slave labor. It was a world wide institution, it was commerce, and it was legal. I recently heard it said, in a documentary on cable television, that slavery still exists in some areas of Africa, and its not white people who own the slaves.
For just a moment, lets take off our pious, prejudicial, "politically correct" glasses, and study our history through the lenses of truth. Although there were 3 passages involved in the slave trade, the 1st and 2nd passages always seem to be overlooked. The first passage was when the stronger African tribes would capture members of the weaker tribes and sell them as slaves, for guns and rum. They were not a conquered Nation. They were captured and sold by their own people. The 2nd passage was when the slave ships would pick up the captured Africans and transport them to other countries to be sold. Certain European banking interests financed the 2nd passage. It would be a good study to find out just who owned and controlled the European banks. The 3rd passage was when they arrived in the other countries and were sold as slaves. Did you know, that the South never owned a single slave ship? And did you know that the Northern industrial interests not only owned slave ships, making their fortunes in the slave trade, but they also owned slaves. When it turned out the slaves were not suitable for work in the Northern factories, they sold them to the South. They wanted to rid themselves of a people who were unprofitable to keep, and with whom they desired to have little or no social contact. I would also remind you that the slave trade could never have existed if it had not been for the fact that the African people never set up a government to secure their God given, Unalienable/Inalienable Rights. Therefore, they were prey to every other nation in the world.
Republic Websters 1828 Dictionary states the definition of Republic as "A commonwealth; a state in which the exercise of the sovereign power is lodged in representatives elected by the people. In modern usage, it differs from a democracy or democratic state, in which the people exercise the powers of sovereignty in person."
One Nation According to Blacks law Dictionary, the definition of Nation is "A (one) people, or aggregation of men, existing in the form of an organized jural society, usually inhabiting a distinct portion of the earth, speaking the same language, using the same customs, possessing historic continuity, and distinguished from other like groups by their racial origin and characteristics, and generally, but not necessarily, living under the same government and sovereignty.
These people Now, lest anyone accuse my ancestors of being racists or bigots, it was not their responsibility to establish a government to secure the "Blessings of Liberty" for any other race of people, or any other races Posterity. And for the record, I am not a racist or a bigot because I am claiming my heritage. And also, for the record, the authority was not given to the government to take the fruits of my labor by legal plunder and give it to someone else. That is socialism. In fact, I have many good friends of other races, who are fine people, many of whom are Christians. They are my friends because I choose to have them for friends, and I am their friend because they choose to have me for their friend. I do not want to take away anyones "equal/civil" rights, just as I dont want anyone, including the government, to infringe on my God given, Constitutionally guaranteed, "Unalienable/Inalienable" Rights.
DeJure Citizenship The definition of De jure in Blacks Law Dictionary is "Descriptive of a condition in which there has been total compliance with all requirements of law of right; legitimate; lawful; by right and just title. In this sense it is the contrary of de facto (q.v.). It may be contrasted with de gratia, in which case it means "as a matter of right," as de gratia means "by grace or favor." Again it may be contrasted with de aequitate; here meaning "by law," as the latter means "by equity."
presumed Blacks Law Dictionary: Presumption: "An inference in favor of a particular fact. A presumption is a rule of law, statutory or judicial, by finding of a basic fact gives rise to existence of presumed fact, until presumption is rebutted."
Blacks Law Dictionary Blacks Law Dictionary contains Definitions of the Terms and Phrases of American and English Jurisprudence, Ancient and Modern by Henry Campbell Black, M.A. Certain words and phrases are defined differently in Blacks Law Dictionary than in Websters. In other words, they have different meanings. When I was attending "public school", I was told, "if you dont know the meaning of a word, look it up in the dictionary." The only dictionary I ever saw or was ever told about was Websters Dictionary. No one ever told me, they dont use Websters Dictionary in court, unless a word is not defined by Blacks Law Dictionary or in the "statute".
filed suit I filed a Petition for Declaratory Judgment, under the Uniform Declaratory Judgments Act, Civil Practice and Remedies Code, (VTCA) Title 2, Chapter 37. Section 37.002(b), which states "This chapter is remedial; its purpose is to settle and to afford relief from uncertainty and insecurity with respect to rights, status, and other legal relations; and it is to be liberally construed and administered."
My suit was filed in State District Court, Fort Bend County, Texas, petitioning the court to issue an "Order" acknowledging my status of Citizenship as De Jure. I named various agencies of the federal, state and local governments as respondents. Those named as respondents in my suit were, Office of the President of the United States of America, Office of United States Department of the Treasury,Office of Social Security Administration, Office of Department of Health and Human Services, Office of the Commissioner of Internal Revenue Service,Office of the Governor of the State of Texas, Texas Department of Public Safety, and Office of the Fort Bend County Clerk.
In spite of the United States Supreme Court ruling that "Statute authorizing removal of state court suites by federal officers does not permit removal by federal agencies", in International Premate Protection League v. Administrators of Tulane Educational Fund, et al., 111 S.Ct. 1700, page 1705 (La.1991), the US Attorney managed to get my case removed to Federal District Court.
After removal to federal court, the government attorneys filed a Motion to Dismiss on the grounds of "Sovereign Immunity", which was denied by the Federal Judge. The judge stated in court, and it is in the transcript, that I am Sovereign and they (government agents) are bureaucrats. He was reading my Positive I.D. (based on my genealogy), that I had entered as evidence, when he denied their motion. They then filed a Motion to Dismiss for "Failure to State a Claim", and he granted that motion, because he said I had not stated damages. I appealed to the Fifth Circuit, who also granted the governments Motion to Dismiss for "Failure to State a Claim", and I petitioned the U.S.Supreme Court by Writ of Certiorari. My Writ of Certiorari was reviewed by the U.S. Supreme Court Judges. However, they denied my Writ. When I called the U.S. Supreme Court Clerk and asked for the reason for the denial of my Writ, I was told "I could not get any information concerning their decision, because it was classified". When my case was active in District Court, it was on their computers in the District Clerk's Office. After I had talked to the U.S. Supreme Court Clerk, I went to the District Court Clerk's office, and tried to pull up my case on their computers, and it was no longer there.
Some interesting sidelines are, after all of this, the final correspondence from the US Attorney, was mailed to me at my judicial place of abode, with no zip code, with Texas spelled out and not abbreviated. Also, after 42 years of receiving 1040 packets from the IRS in the mail, with my husband's and my name both on the mailing sticker, the following January after my case was over, my husband received a 1040 packet without my name on it! I have not heard from, or received anything in the mail from the IRS since my case.
Also, On October 22, 1997, while traveling alone in my automobile, I was stopped by a police officer and given a ticket . I was charged an expired inspection sticker, no evidence of insurance, and an expired Driver's License. I was represented by Dr. Cliff William, who is not a member of the bar, and who holds no license to "practice law." At the arraignment, Dr William informed the judge that their court had no jurisdiction over me, due to my status as a Sovereign De jure Citizen, and when the judge entered a plea of "not guilty" for me, I demanded a jury trial. (We wanted to educate the jury) On June 24, 1998, after we had filed a Motion for Dr.William to represent me, pro hock vice, a Motion to Dismiss for lack of Jurisdiction, a Petition for Trial De Novo, after the judge stating emphatically that no one would "practice law in his court without a license", and after the court rescheduled the case a couple of times, we finally went to trial. When the prosecutor entered the courtroom, he informed the judge, "he had no evidence he could present against me due to lack of jurisdiction." I walked out of the court room without paying a dime.
