“None are more hopelessly enslaved than those who falsely believe they are free.”

*CAVEAT* ~ Don’t believe everything your read or hear. ALWAYS do your own diligent research. Not every mind works the same so we should always assume there are errors in what we regard as truth. William Cooper, author of Behold a Pale Horse, said with conviction, “Listen to everyone, read everything, believe nothing unless you can prove it in your own research.”


Constitution ~ supreme law of the land
(common law)
contract law
(Statutory/legislated law maintained by congress NOT the Constitution[*] and only to be applied to FICTIONS OF LAW that include government positions/’agents’, 14th Amendment U.S. citizens and corporate personhood in general)
The federal govt has original jurisdiction over interstate commerce (congress)
(Article I Section 8)
The federal govt has original jurisdiction over all cases of maritime and admiralty
(Article III Section 2)
No Law shall be passed impairing the Obligation of contracts
(Article I Section 10)
What this creates is CONSTITUTIONAL reasoning for victimless crime against the State which is a fiction of law! Since there is no actual REAL victim, they fine and imprison us via some contract (title/capacity) that we are operating through and we are totally unaware of the nature of the contract and the law itself!

“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.–That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, –That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government.” ~Declaration of Independence

PROBLEM: Our lack of knowledge. Knowledge is power.

Are you aware that the UNITED STATES is a legal fiction/corporation [TITLE 28 USC Section 3002 (15)(A)] which is a FOREIGN corporation registered in Puerto Rico? This is NOT the original republic for which it stands… Crazy huh; do you also know how that simple fact relates to your everyday life? Are you aware there are two distinct “citizens” as well as governments in this country[*]? There are some things YOU REALLY SHOULD KNOW about CONTRACTS, CONSENT and CAPACITY! 

It is important to comprehend that a ‘person’, in law, is a title/capacity that is a contracted party to the legal fiction mentioned above. In our legal system the contracted U.S. citizen is an “agent of government” or a trustee with “benefits and privileges” rather than the natural rights that were granted to us by the creator. You CONSENT to waive your God-given NATURAL RIGHTS voluntarily[**] for those “benefits and privileges” which, in contract law(common law), is a lawful form of consideration. 

These are the elements of a binding contract:

1. Offer (full disclosure is supposed to be given but ignorance of law is no excuse)

2. Consideration (something of value put up by both parties and in this case it’s “benefits and privileges” for your the waiver of your creator-given natural rights)

3. Acceptance (CONSENT by both parties of the contract making LAW. A maxim of law states that consent makes the law. A contract is a law between parties, which can aqcuire force only by consent)

Under the Constitution, you have voluntarily accepted their (the government’s) terms of use of THE NAME (ex: JARED DALEN, a fiction of law) as the trustee under trust law, the title/capacity (ALL CAPS NAME on birth certificate) that was granted to you at birth and authorized by your mother/informant. Now ask yourself, why must you sign everything with the government if there isn’t a contract that REQUIRES your signature? Tickets, licenses, social security, voter registrations are ALL CONTRACTS. Thats why you hear people say income tax is ‘voluntary’. ALL licenses, passports, and other government forms have your name in ALL CAPS. This is what some call a strawman aka your title/capacity that you can use, if you wish, to operate publicly in commerce with benefits and privileges under the jurisdiction of Congress as authorized by (Article I Section 8 aka the Commerce Clause).

You are ignorantly beholden to THEIR jurisdiction via CONTRACTS/CONSENT CONSTITUTIONALLY (understand when I say ignorant, I merely mean something someone doesn’t know/haven’t read yet)! You must also understand what CAPACITY is and how it relates to your person. In law a man/woman HAS a person, they are NOT a person. A person is a contracted capacity in which you carry out business in and ONLY CERTAIN JURISDICTIONS OF COURT HAVE AUTHORITY OVER YOU (CONGRESS). First and foremost you are a living man/woman who is “governed” under the common law. If you contract into a public capacity such as a U.S. citizen, you give the government whom has ORIGINAL jurisdiction over interstate commerce and maritime/admiralty cases, power over your person and this is protected by the authorization of the Constitution. Finally, no state can pass any law impairing the obligation of a contracts so NO CONSTITUTIONAL PROTECTIONS ARE AFFORDED TO THE PEOPLE (in the capacity of a U.S. citizen) BECAUSE THEIR STATUS HAS DIMINISHED LAWFULLY AND BY THEIR CONSENT. Remember, the Constitution is to restrain the GOVERNMENT not the People. 

A judge will not protect you because his CAPACITY is only to determine law and administrate justice accordingly (he works for THE STATE). The pro-se-cutor will not protect you because his CAPACITY is to uphold the obligation of that contract you voluntarily made with the government, IF ONE EXISTS! The prosecutor/plaintiff is also REPRESENTING THE STATE. Can you say CONFLICT OF INTEREST?) A hired attorney cannot help you (they can but depends on the situation) because the mere act of him re-presenting your person (capacity/title) will give the court jurisdiction over your person AUTOMATICALLY because they are an officer of the court (in propria persona, Black’s 5th). More proof of this is found in CORPUS JURIS SECUNDUM, which is the rules for those in the law society. Volume 7 Section 4 explains that in the relationship between the attorney and client: the attorney’s duty is to the public and the court NOT the client. Furthermore, Volume 7 Section 2 explains that the client is a “ward of the court” which deems the client legally incompetent so the court has a fiduciary duty to administer your affairs (estate)! All of these folks above, whether they get this or not, have a self-interest in maintaining their livelihood and will protect those interests. They will have to answer to the “almighty” as referenced in the scripture below. But trust me, YOU are your own worst enemy! Well it’s true, ignorance of law is no excuse and these people have a duty to uphold the law and the Constitution NOT YOUR IGNORANCE!   

“Woe unto ye lawyers! For ye have taken away the key of knowledge: ye entered in not in yourselves, and them that were entering in ye hindered.” ~Luke. XI 52

 SOLUTION: Quit blaming everyone and everything around you for your own ignorance!

A maxim of law states, ignorance of law is no excuse. We are EXPECTED by law to know the law otherwise we are deemed legally incompetent. For those who really care about their freedoms that millions have died for over thousands of years I suggest you pay attention to the information being offered here. In order to protect these freedoms for ourselves and future generations, we must me competent of basic law and understand our true capacity as one of God’s children (whoever your god is, doesn’t matter). We are a spirit (energy from the creator) and a body (a vessel made of earth).Understand this simple concept because when it comes down to it, even matter is condensed energy. I believe the spirit (consciousness) and the body (your person) are used distinctly in law and that is the basis for capacity.

Many people argue that our power in this country is voting. Well that is partly true but I want you to consider this excerpt from Commentaries on the Laws of England by Sir William Blackstone. This book, as well as Lord Coke’s Institutes of the Lawes of England, are the backbone of much of the ideology in the Constitution as well as an authoritative book (admissible evidence) in our courts today:

“The court of justice for the common people and the theatre of the power of the country.”

According to this reference excerpt from Blackstone’s Commentaries, this reveals that our true power is in court under the common law (court of record) which is the law of the land. When we operate in the capacity of contracted a U.S. citizen(trustee), we waive our natural rights and our person is subject to statutory/legislated jurisdiction. Again, this duality is stated very clear in Downes v. Bidwell below in the reference section…

I would like to mention that under this ideology/truth, you are not above the law. If you injure someone or deprive them of Life, Liberty or the Pursuit of Happiness, you are still held to the consequences of your actions under the common law. Don’t be mad at anyone else be it cops, tax collectors, judges or politicians for your shortcomings to this point, feel blessed this information has found it’s way to you. Your ignorance as well as millions of others have created this mess now we must clean it up honorably through knowledge, understanding and compassion. Love is stronger emotion than fear. Fear is the reason our society is so out of homeostasis. Remember, those who stand in the light are protected by truth. Light can dispel darkness but darkness cannot dispel light.


[*] Downes v. Bidwell (1901) ~ Supreme Court Justice John Marshall Harlan’s dissenting opinion:

“…TWO national governments exist; one to be maintained under the Constitution (by and for Article IV State Citizens, the people), with all its restrictions (on the government), the other to be maintained by Congress (commerce governed under the jurisdiction of the United States, Article I Section 8 and Article III Section 2) OUTSIDE AND INDEPENDENTLY of that instrument (the Constitution). 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 (what is happening today)… It will be an evil day for American liberty if the theory of a government outside the supreme law of the land finds lodgment in our constitutional jurisprudence.” (my notes in italics and emphasis in CAPS)

[**] The13th Amendment DID NOT MENTION ‘voluntary servitude’ (slavery by consent or ignorance) and the 14th defines “citizens of the United States” in contrast to Article IV “State Citizens” mentioned in the original organic Constitution of 1787.


Let’s say for a minute you have a fishing license. It is a contract that has certain terms in which you agree, so you sign your name on the line. This binds you to the terms of the fishing license. This is a CONTRACT. Now lets say Fish and Game Agents beat your door in as you are relaxing from a long day of work, sitting on your couch and drinking a beer. “Produce your fishing license!”, the Agent yells. You comply, produce the license and then they say, “You know drinking is illegal while fishing! Put down the beer!” You stare at them with confusion and say, “But I’m not fishing!?!?…now lets pause for a minute. I know this situation is extreme (thanks Dean Clifford), but it shows how Fish and Game Agents have NO JURISDICTION over the person(CAPACITY/TITLE) you created when you chose to contract voluntarily for a fishing license with your government issued person/title/capacity known to us as the Certificate of Vital Record. You signed the fishing license voluntarily, hell yea your liable IF YOU ARE FISHING. Remember ARTICLE I SECTION 10? Obligation of contracts? In this example you are at home, IN YOUR CASTLE and you exist in your default capacity (as a son/daughter of god) acknowledging to these agents that no contract exists therefore not giving consent to de facto authority operating under the color-of-law. They have NO JURISDICTION but if you don’t rebut their presumption THE PRESUMPTION STANDS. If you don’t know your rights, you have NONE!

All these statutes and codes are merely rules made by the U.S. corporation and are no different than Wall*Mart’s “rules” that EMPLOYEES abide by. What makes you think THEIR rules apply to you? Not UNLESS you fail to know any difference. These “laws” only apply to someone who has willingly contracted with a corporation aka UNITED STATES. (Don’t confuse UNITED STATES with America the landmass or even the  several States) If you don’t know your rights, you have NONE!

NOTE FROM AUTHOR: My brothers and sisters of earth, lend an ear because this applies UNIVERSALLY. We are all children of God; whoever YOUR God is doesn’t matter because if you respect the spirit and person of the man/woman next to you, there is no force that can lawfully take from you Life, Liberty or the pursuit of Happiness unless you consent. We are a spirit that is separate but embodied in a body/vessel made of earth (you ARE what you EAT) and have forgotten our true standing as a divine spirit (we ALL have the spirit of the son of God as one of “God’s” creations). We need to respect that ideology in everyone, but we have been subject to over a century (more like thousands of years) of  the incremental programming making us, a living-breathing species made of condensed energy and star dust, subject to the authority of governments that are all a fiction of law and subject to them. I hope this article clarifies much of the indoctrination that has been fed (no pun intended =) to us over 4-5 generations and probably longer. If you want a mindset of someone watching the “beast from the sea” aka Admiralty/maritime law/jurisdiction (Article III Section 2) in the late 1840’s  is HENRY DAVID THOREAU  and his essay named CIVIL DISOBEDIENCE. I HIGHLY suggest reading that piece and referencing some of the ideology of this personal observance of the government at that time (1850’s).

PSALM 23:4 ~ Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death (this is court and the people that represent the offices/titles of a governmental legal fiction), I will fear no evil: for thou art with me (‘God’ is with you; knowing the truth means you have nothing to fear); thy rod and thy staff they comfort me (knowledge is powerful as any tool is if used correctly).

Revelation 13:1 ~ Then I saw a beast coming up out of the sea (the beast is the legal fictions aka governments/corporations who are empowered over man by Maritime/Admiralty Law which is also known as the ‘laws of the high seas’), having seven heads and ten horns, and upon his horns ten crowns, and upon his heads the name of blasphemy.
