A Clarification About American Sovereignty and the Church
Some people may have misunderstood my Letter to Cardinal George. My blood is “upon the altar” which means that I am under an inherited obligation to defend the peace and the jurisdiction of the land as a sovereign. This is a temporal office which exists because rights and duties are jural correlatives. In order for sovereigns–including American sovereigns– to have a right, they also accrue a duty. The duty to defend is similar to the duty to inform.
In other words, it isn’t good enough to get your own fat out of the fire. You can’t earn your stripes as a sovereign by cutting some lucrative sidebar deal and keeping your mouth shut. As a sovereign, when you are aware of crimes being committed and innocent people being attacked, you have an absolute moral imperative to expose and oppose the criminality, to render aid and assistance to the victims, and to sue any offender for remedy in their behalf.
In my Letter to Cardinal George I spoke of being an “officer of the Church” because all sovereigns including American sovereigns are subject to the duties of their office: sovereign. This does not mean that I have any secret relationship or agenda. It means that my actions in exposing the crimes against Americans and all actions taken to aid them cannot be objected to or opposed because I am doing my duty as a sovereign. The Letter to Cardinal George is a very powerful and implacable action at Law which obligates the Global Estate Trust to provide enforcement against the corporations responsible for defrauding Americans.
The gravity of the situation was not lost on Cardinal George, but the other side of the coin was equally apparent to me and should be apparent to all Americans. We are sovereigns. We have duties. We have empowerments. And virtually nobody has exercised those prerogatives in over a hundred and fifty years. You can hardly blame Cardinal George and others like him for slumbering along and all but forgetting who we are, because we have forgotten ourselves. In avoiding the duties of sovereignty we yield ourselves as subjects. If that leaves us begging for food stamps at the same time we hold the beneficial interest in entire States–and I echo Cardinal George somewhat— whose fault is it but our own?
It is the Biblical Truth and the Rule of the World that everyone must serve a Master. A sovereign may serve himself as Master, but in the same token, is obligated to rule himself. We have almost uniformly failed to exercise sovereignty, haven’t bothered to understand it, and have taken it for granted as part of our birthright—- little realizing what sovereignty means and what it requires. We have to change that if we hope to survive as a nation.
The key to understanding sovereignty is the fact that the servant is always the master. Always. In order to rule, you have to serve.
Thus, you rule when you serve others and accept unpleasant duties. Sovereignty is not glamorous, does not involve lording it over anyone, and isn’t easy. Think of Jesus washing His Disciple’s feet. Sovereignty has a ton of duties and very few perks—- but the absolutely stunning gift of sovereignty is the freedom to never lie about anything to anyone.
Our nation like ourselves has forgotten what it means to be sovereign, and has lapsed into careless and forgetful dependency upon the very persons and institutions that have undermined and betrayed it from the start—- foreign banks, commercial con artists, defense contractors, purveyors of vice, dishonest trustees, and the greedy, immoral, endlessly incompetent Congress.
We are so ignorant that we claim foreign flags as ours, put up with harassment from our employees, allow foreign city states to set up shop on our shores,let communists set the curriculum in our schools, and live as Thomas Jefferson feared— as virtual slaves in the land of our Forefathers. My Letter to Cardinal George is not, as some have taken it, evidence of some skullduggery between myself and the Holy See. My Letter to Cardinal George is a spur to a profoundly startled horse. For many decades America has slumbered and drifted and paid no attention to government; history, actual Law, or much of anything else of importance. Like a ship becalmed but in the tow of an evil undercurrent, America has remained at peace at home, while embroiled in constant war abroad, and like ancient Romans we have glutted ourselves into obesity and disease and chased endlessly after meaningless entertainments. Rats have infested our institutions. Dust has gathered on our glory until all we remember are our fables. Those who love America from afar have lost all hope that we are —or have ever been— the nation we say we are.
It may be the eleventh hour, but it’s not too late to take a stand and choose a different fate.
