Declaration of Independence 1994 The Coming March on Washington DC. "To Take Back Our Country".... ATTORNEY LINDA THOMPSON'S "ULTIMATUM" AND "DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE" TO CONGRESS: .. IS THIS FOR REAL OR IS SHE REALLY WORKING FOR THE GOVERNMENT TO "SET UP" THE PATRIOTS? (CAC General Reading, May 2, 1994) QUESTION: Awareness, we're here tonight for a CAC General Reading, with questions sent in from the membership. Does Awareness have an opening message? COSMIC AWARENESS: This Awareness suggests that the document from David Alexander be picked up and the cover letter, the first three paragraphs be read. QUESTIONER: OK. David writes: "Avaton, Linda Thompson, the woman who made the Waco tapes showing that flame-throwers were used to burn the Branch Davidian compound, has started a very serious patriot movement. She has been on talk shows, she has her own Patriot computer bulletin board, and is on the world-wide Internet, posting conspiracy theories. None of this is unfamiliar to Cosmic Awareness readers. But now she has taken a MAJOR step -- issuing a new Declaration of Independence! Along with it, she is issuing an ultimatum to the U.S. Government that they take certain actions immediately or be arrested by the citizenry and tried for treason. Among the actions she is demanding are repeal of the 14, 16th, and 17th Amendments, declaring that the Federal Government has no legal jurisdiction in any State to make or enforce any criminal laws; declaring that the United States is not under the authority of the United Nations; declaring the national debt to the Federal Reserve illegal, unconstitutional, null and void, and a demand to issue currency, backed by gold, through the U.S. Treasury; repeal of NAFTA; revocation of GATT; repeal of the Brady Bill and the Omnibus Crime Bill. Here is her latest message to the Patriot world, which is the most radical I have ever read. I have also included a copy of the Ultimatum and her Declaration of Independence with this letter. After you read this, my question to Cosmic Awareness appears at the end of this letter. COSMIC AWARENESS: This Awareness suggests now that you turn the page and read the entity's question; this in the bottom half of the second page. QUESTIONER: "Now, people are starting to wonder if Linda Thompson is working on the behalf of the government, rather than for the people. What better way to round up the rabble-rousers than by planting a fake "leader" and organizing an event that would get every supporter arrested for carrying arms in Washington D.C., where arms are illegal and which is not even a state of the union?" COSMIC AWARENESS: This Awareness indicates the question as to whether this entity is working for the Federal Government to help round up the patriots is that which is a reasonable question, considering the way things have in the past been manipulated. This Awareness indicates that in this instance, the question is not in the affirmative, and is apparently one that is being promoted by those who are skeptics and who do not really expect or want to see a patriot movement in this country. This Awareness indicates in the first place, the entity Linda Thompson is not the force behind this ultimatum. She, as an attorney is simply lending her name and her representation to a greater force of patriots, and these patriots have the full backing of the military in this country, the military having the authority from the Constitution to enforce the Constitution in the event the administration and other elected officials fail to do so. The Military Has the Right and Obligation to Take Control When Government Officials Fail to Uphold the Constitution This Awareness indicates that in other words, the authority of the Constitution as law of the land provides that in the event the elected officials fail to do their duty in regard to the people of the country, the military has the right and the obligation to take control and make sure that the laws of the Constitution are carried out properly and enforced properly. This Awareness indicates in this instance, that is the situation. The entity is speaking for these people who have, as patriots, determined that the Constitution is going to be enforced as law of the land, and no longer allowed to be usurped. The "Federal" Government is a Separate Nation This Awareness indicates this goes back to a previous reading in which this Awareness indicated that there are basically two governments in this country: the governments known as the United States of America -- these being the state governments, united -- and the Federal government, which is foreign to the United States of America, which is located in the District of Columbia, which is not part of the United States and which is, in fact, controlled to a great extent by the international bankers and by the laws and rules of the United Nations. This Federal Washington D.C. state or country, has set itself up in control over the United States of America as a quasi-government. This Awareness indicates that elected officials residing outside of the United States of America in Washington D.C., are not actually employees or officials of the United States of America, or its rules. The states' rules do not apply. The states' Constitutions do not apply to these entities in Washington D.C. because they are acting outside the country in this second nation known as the Federal government. This Awareness indicates in other words, the United States Federal government and the United States of America are basically two different countries, and the Constitution of the United States of America is not the law of the United States Federal government. Therefore, these entities cannot, while in the District of Columbia, be accused of treason. They are operating m behalf of the foreign bankers and their special interests. The agencies created in the District of Columbia have also been created as foreign agencies and it is to this that Linda Thompson's references are, in part, made. This Awareness indicates that all of this has been made clear and is understood by those in charge of the patriot movement. The patriot movement is not simply a small group of Linda Thompson's people; it is spread throughout the country. It ties in to the Hildebrand Fort Collins lawsuit and with several other lawsuits that are equally being pursued or have been pursued, and it is timed at this point to take back the country and restore the United States Constitution . Linda Thompson Has Strong Blacking of the Military This Awareness indicates that the action of having Linda Thompson speak out in behalf of the patriot movement in the United States, which includes most of the military of the United States and many of the higher officials who are still patriotic to this country; the purpose of having her do this is to focus the attention and the energy on a combined movement that will restore the strengthened power of the Constitution. This Awareness indicates that it is going to continue with or without Linda Thompson. She was chosen because she was brave enough to challenge the Waco situation with her video tapes and with her outspoken discussions of the shenanigans involved in that Waco situation. lt is not something that she herself personally is promoting, and therefore, entities who assume this are underestimating the power behind this woman's ultimatum to the Congress and House of Representatives in challenging them to go back to the Constitution or face charges of treason. No Chance for Bankers and UN Forces to Take Over This Awareness indicates the greatest question as to the potential power of this movement is whether the actions will be effective in disarming the traitors to this country, to the Constitution, prior to the 1st of September of this year. There are approximately 4 months in which many things could happen. Those who think that they can enter into this country with a United Nations army or somehow set up a war in this country in a way that would disarm the citizens and allow them to take over and restore the nation back to the United Nations as a subsidiary to the United Nations, should think again, because they still have not disarmed the citizens, and as long as the citizens of this country are still armed, along with the military, and are all demanding the Constitution be restored, there isn't a chance for these international bankers and the U.N. forces to take over this country. Spread the "Emancipation Packet" Far and Wide! This Awareness indicates that it will be of great importance that this Declaration of Independence as promoted by Linda Thompson and others and the ultimatum to the Federal government and this general information in this emancipation packet, be sent to as many people as possible between now and September 1st. This Awareness indicates that it has been broadcast over many of the computer networks and bulletin boards, it has been sent to all members of Congress and the House of Representatives and she has requested that entities print thousands of copies, sending them to ministers and to various leaders and agencies around the country and to the media. This Awareness indicates that she is asking entities to give time and money to print copies to spread around, and asking for entities who can fly airplanes to drop the leaflets over cities. This Awareness indicates she is basically a spokesperson representing the force of the patriot movement which has grown enormously in the past several years. This Awareness indicates that these entities have researched and the conclusions and findings of a conspiracy that has covered some 80 years of time, from the beginning of the founding of the Federal Reserve Bank up to present time, have led them to recognize and have all of the evidence necessary to undo the mischief that has been created by this conspiracy against the Constitution and the American people. You Have An Opportunity to Make History This Awareness indicates therefore, it is the proper time for this movement to occur. The individuals who receive this information have an opportunity to make history -- equivalent or greater than that of the founding fathers when this country was first born. It is a time much like that of the 1770s, where, however, a new level, a new form, a new type of tyranny is being overthrown just before it was ready to make its claim and clamp its iron fist upon the masses of this country. This Awareness indicates that those entities who receive this information -- and this Awareness suggests that the entire document be made available to the membership -- should make as many copies as possible and spread those copies as far and wide as is reasonable within their means to alert as many people as can be alerted between now and September 1st. A Chance to Dissolve the IRS and Federal Reserve This Awareness indicates that this will also be an action that works in conjunction with the Hildebrand/Fort Collins settlement regarding the Federal Reserve Bank and it will also restore the laws of the Constitution. Likewise, it is to be expected that the income tax, which is essentially a head tax, will be eliminated and the IRS will be dissolved along with the Federal Reserve Bank. This Awareness indicates essentially, the IRS simply collects money for the Federal Reserve Bank; that in the past decade, the IRS in collecting from American citizens has not collected in behalf of the United States of America, but has collected in behalf of the Federal Reserve Bank, with the tax payments going to the Federal Reserve Bank rather than to the United States Treasury department. This Awareness indicates only 22 percent of the taxes collected went to the United States for the national debt to the Federal Reserve Bank. The rest of the 78 percent of taxes collected, went to foreign countries: to Germany and to other countries of Europe, into the banks there, to help those banks lend to the masses in Europe in order to create a greater indebtedness among these people so that the interest collected at 25 percent in most cases in those European banking contracts, would bring in even more revenue to the Federal Reserve banks than is available through the lending practices here, where the interest rates are much lower. This Awareness indicates, in other words, your tax money has gone into financing Federal Reserve bank fraud against the European nations, rather than going to your own country; that this is one reason why you are being over taxed and why programs in your country are being cut and why your national debt is not being reduced, regardless of how much tax you pay. Enough is Enough! Charge Them With Treason! This Awareness indicates that the patriots, as represented in the document by Linda Thompson, recognize all of this and have decided enough is enough; it is time for a change, to get rid of the tyranny that has taken over this country through the false Federal government. This Awareness indicates that these entities are willing, ready and able to make such a demand or ultimatum. They know who the traitors are and they are backed by sufficient force to enforce the Constitution as law of the land. Millions Are Asked to Witness Their Signatures This Awareness indicates that they are asking for millions of entities to witness their signatures on this Declaration of Independence, 1994. This Awareness suggests that entities may wish to examine this and determine whether they too would like to add their name to the millions of others who will be signing this for the September 1st deadline in which the Congress and House of Representatives and the Federal governments and the state governments agree to move back toward a Constitutional government for this country. This Awareness indicates that those officials who do not back this move are going to find themselves being indicted and tried for treason. This Awareness indicates this is a very serious situation, and these entities understand what they are saying and what they are doing in this ultimatum. This Awareness suggests entities study this information, decide where they stand and, if they are so inclined, to promote or send copies of this material as far and wide as they feel compelled to do, recognizing that many of the broadcasting actions may be duplications of similar actions by others. A Momentous Event is Occurring In other words, your radio stations, your TV stations, even your church will receive several copies from various people, but the repeated number of copies received will still be not a waste, but a greater influence on the recipients as to the importance and strength of this movement. This Awareness indicates that it is seldom in the course of human events that a moment such as this occurs. There is always the continued effort of tyrants to build up greater and greater power over the masses, to create greater and greater holds on the minds, the energies and the resources of the subjects, and rarely in the course of human events has there been an opportunity for the people to form their own nation. A Chance to Rid Our Country of the Parasites This happened over 200 years ago, and that nation became the most powerful nation on earth. It also became the most generous and the most inspiring nation on earth, until this century, when the foreign hands took control and began to turn the nation into that which represented their own agenda rather than the original agenda of the people of the United States in their intentions as formulated by the founding fathers in the Constitution of the United States. It has been essentially taken away from the people and from future generations by these bankers. The freedoms no longer exist. The government forces could at any time walk into your home, ignoring Constitutional rights, shoot you, and proclaim that you were involved with drugs or some anti-government action, or that you were a child molester or some other falsified claim to get the public to praise them for having ridden society of such an awful person. This Awareness indicates that this has happened repeatedly in big ways and, more often, in smaller non publicized situations; that now it is an opportunity to throw off that tyrannical form of foreign controlled government and to regain the true government of the United States of America as presented in the U.S. Constitution. Those who have been traitors to this country will lose their controls. Even though they rode high and mighty in their power, they are now destined to fall. A Time of Great Significance in the History of the World! This Awareness indicates that this is a time of great significance in the history of this country, in the history of the world. This year is that which shall bring about a great change on the face of the earth, and to give a new life, a new resurrection to the concepts of freedom, to the concepts of individuality and to the very nature of your country, so that it again will serve as a beacon for the rest of the world in terms of ideals, values and purposes, in the preservation of human rights, in the preservation of human pursuits of happiness. You Have Been Carefully Prepared for this Moment This Awareness indicates that you can be a part of this great momentous movement and you have been prepared and practiced for this for some time. In the past, you (CAC Members) have sent messages during critical times, you have contacted people of significance in your communities, in your nation, you have sent the word out on this or that situation . This Awareness indicates the "Hot August Night" scenario is recognized in the patriot movement as a time when the country was almost lost. You were, in a great sense, instrumental in helping to preserve the freedoms of this country long enough to allow this moment to come about, where the country can be taken back. This Awareness indicates that having practiced during the times of the "Passage Perilous" and the "Hot August Night" and other situations, you are now prepared to help spread this information as presented by Linda Thompson to alert even more people than ever as to what is occurring in this nation at this time, and as to the great significance and importance of this occurrence. This Awareness indicates that for many entities in this country it will be the first time they have ever realized that there has been a conspiracy working against them and against the nation to make them slaves to this international banking cartel and those who operate it. It will be new to them. A Stupendous Chance to Alert the Masses to Wrong-Doings This document is full of information that will alert them to an entirely new level of awareness that they had never before encountered. The majority of people in this country have no idea of what is going on. The majority of people in this country would go along with whatever the media tells them in terms of the way they should look at the world. The majority of people in this country couldn't care less about whether something relates favorably to the Constitution or whether a law is passed banning the Constitution -- because they do not really know what the Constitution is all about in the first place. This Awareness indicates that this document by Linda Thompson, and those who worked with her on it, is such that it will alert the masses that something wrong has been happening in this country and that it is treasonous and that there are powerful forces who are trying to put the country right. It will cause them not to automatically go along with news media or what the government issues as the statement. It will cause them instead to question: "What's happening here? Who are these patriots? Who are the good guys and who are the bad guys?" This Awareness indicates once they begin to question, then they become capable of being educated, but until they question, they are simply brainwashed robots going to and from work, obeying the rules of the plant, office, company and nation in accordance with the administrative policies that are handed down, without questioning these policies, even if it is to their detriment to follow those policies. A Document to Force Entities to Think! This Awareness indicates that when a document such as this comes along, (cont) _____________________________________ | | | alex@spiral.org | "The strongest reason for the | ________________________ | people to retain their right to | S. P. I. R. A. L. | keep and bear arms is, as a last | ======================== | resort, to protect themselves | Society for the Protection of | against tyranny in government." | Individual Rights and Liberties | |_____________________________________| -- Thomas Jefferson --- PVERT * Origin: (FidoNet#1:330/201.997) SEEN-BY: 330/201 ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ (103) 07 Jul 94 08:43:00 By: alex@spiral.org To: ALL Re: Cosmic Awareness Issue 94 St: Sent In transit Reply chain 102 104 ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ (cont) once or twice in a millennium, entities are forced to think, and when they are forced to think, it becomes possible that they might learn something of great significance. Therefore, it is important that those entities who perceive themselves to have a certain degree of awareness have a responsibility to the masses whom they recognize do not necessarily have such a degree of awareness, and in their responsibility they have the opportunity to teach those who do not know and to show by example and to show through their efforts that force of creative love that helps to bring about a better world for everyone. A Momentous Task is Ahead! Can You Help? This Awareness suggests you think carefully. Consider what you can do to add to the momentous task of getting this information out. If you can afford to print a thousand copies and send these or pass them, or set them in grocery stores or on tables in public places so that entities passing by recognize they are free to take, this will be a great way of distributing the information. This Awareness indicates that this packet of information may be tentatively ca]led "Your Emancipation Packet." This Awareness suggests that such a term may not be totally descriptive, but it is quite clearly an essentially "Your Emancipation" in terms of freeing you from the future that was planned for the masses of the world by these entities who have for so long plotted and planned to divide the earth into two classes of people -- those who rule and those who serve. For there are very few of you who would have, in any stretch of the imagination, been involved in the ruling class. This Awareness indicates that almost 99 percent of the people on earth, or more, would be servants to those few. "Your Emancipation Packet" -- Spread It Far and Wide! Therefore, this packet of information may well be "Your Emancipation Packet" as it is spread throughout the land to alert the masses so that they cannot be rallied in such a way by those traitors to your country, to turn against the patriots. This is the important thing: that more entities become part of the patriot movement and quickly enough, so as to prevent the hostile forces from turning these entities against the patriots. WILL AN ARMED MILITIA ACTUALLY MARCH ON D.C.? (How the "Hot August Night" Campaign Changed History...) FOLLOW-UP QUESTION: I imagine a lot of people reading this document would have a feeling similar to what I had: that this was an incredible document, and I agreed with everything in it, and how, if this could come about, how it would transform this nation. What are the odds at this time? Does Awareness see an armed militia actually marching on Washington and forcing Congress to accept this Declaration of Independence? COSMIC AWARENESS: This Awareness indicates that the army is well behind this action. This Awareness indicates that in the month of August in 1992, the month of that planned "Hot August Night" scenario, after the country had almost been taken over in the scenario planned, which was essentially stopped by all of the warnings that were put out, the alerts that were given to various Congress people, even those who were involved in the plot to set up the "Hot August Night" scenario, all of these entities receiving so much information from so many different people who seemed to know their plan, became nervous about carrying out the plan, knowing that they were already exposed, and so they pulled back and decided to wait for a more opportune time and to find a different way of implementing the action. The plan was for President Bush to create a bank holiday and create an economic crash, similar to 1929, by the 17th of December. This Awareness indicates that this would, in fact, occur with or without Bush being reelected, because he would remain in office until inauguration time in January. Military Patriots Forced Blush and Clinton to Sign Document! (They Are Now Enforcing the Constitution in Many Areas) This Awareness indicates that shortly after August and shortly before the election took place, Ross Perot, Bill Clinton and then President Bush were invited to meet with the Joint Chiefs of Staff of the military forces: Navy, Army, and Air Force, and met with a large number of other military people, all of high ranking positions. Many of the ranks were equivalent to that of Collin Powell and above. These high-ranking officials informed the three political candidates for the presidency that they wanted the signature from each of them that they would work to restore Constitutional control over this country; that the Constitution would be the law of the land, and that they would sign this agreement or face the consequences. All three of these entities signed the agreement and George Bush stopped promoting or mentioning the New World Order. This Awareness indicates that the military recognized its role and its requirement that it enforce the Constitution as the law of the land in the event the elected officials failed to do so. In taking on that responsibility, these entities who had sworn allegiance to the Constitution in regard to their military career, felt they were acting in good conscience in opposing the administration or any who would not work in conjunction with the Constitution, and therefore, these entities reasserted their patriotism, and in so doing, they congealed a powerful force. They had already met and discussed and looked for ways whereby they could bring this country back to the Constitution. They began by having these three political candidates agree to work for the Constitution rather than for the United Nations and they then pursued the secondary actions which had to do with bringing about the changes in government to allow the Constitution to be effective throughout the land. The first thing was to rid the country of the Federal Reserve Bank and to restore the Congress and House of Representatives to their sworn purposes of serving the United States under the Constitution. This is what they are doing. They are enforcing the law of the land on the public officials who have been bought off, in many instances, by lobbyists and by special interest groups many of them foreign in their agendas. Citizens Now Must Also Assert Their Dedication! This Awareness indicates that essentially, they are doing their duty and they are happy about what they are doing and the citizens or persons in the United States should also assert their individuality and their dedication to the Constitution -- the law of the land -- since it is designed for the people to serve as head of the government. The Constitution was created to give the people the rulership over the government which they elect, and to create laws that are compatible with the wishes of the people. Therefore, it is time for individuals to pledge their allegiance to these laws that free them from tyranny such as that which was ever so close in recent months and which has been encroaching since that time, except for the patriot movement, which is growing in strength daily. This Awareness indicates there is a thing entities need to recognize: the fast-growing patriot movement is very similar to that of a pyramid type of growth -- two becomes four, four becomes eight, eight becomes 16, 16 becomes 32, 32 becomes 64, etc., and the more entities grow in the patriot movement, the more quickly it grows to encompass the masses. Patriot Movement Now Influencing 25 Percent of Population The patriot movement at this time, has influenced approximately 25 percent of the people in this nation. The other 75 percent, in being informed by these 25 percent, could, within a very short time, become so magnified in terms of their numbers that by September 1st, everyone in the nation will know what has occurred over the past 80 years, and why, for so long, their parents and themselves and their children have suffered so much indignity in regard to their work, in regard to their possessions and financial assets, having so much taken from them and receiving so little in return because of the interference of the Federal government, rather than its protection of their rights. This Awareness indicates that entities should indeed read the Declaration of Independence, 1994, and they will wonder: "How did it ever get so bad?" and they will see how bad it really is, when it is put into words and entities recognize that their rights have really been removed over a period of time, and that these rights should never have been lost. Sometimes things can get so bad, that entities don't even realize it, because they would rather not stir up trouble, thinking the trouble is worse than the situation they are in, even though the situation continues to get worse day by day. This Awareness indicates at some point, someone can come along and say: "You're on a train with no engineer; it is going down a mountain pass! There is no future here! It is going to get worse! You had better do something!" The entity might think: "Oh, no! Not me. I'm going to hold on to my seat. I'm going to stay where I am. It would be dangerous to do anything at this point." But when the other entity points out: "You are going down a steep hill! The train is going too fast! You cannot get off if you don't get off now!", then the entity on the train may wake up and realize: "I have to do something! Is there an emergency brake or something to help slow down the train?" This Awareness indicates this is much like what has been happening in this nation. The majority of people do not want to disturb anything. They would rather accept some tyrannical controls than to turn against the tyrannical government and they would rather think nice things about the government than to admit it is becoming tyrannical. Our "Government" Is Killing Its People! This Awareness indicates that many entities have been killed for speeches, many have been killed because they opposed certain policies of the government. This Awareness indicates that many were killed for things that should have been little more than a jail sentence or a slap on the wrist, or killed because of some government agency involving itself in a jurisdiction that it had no real control over. This Awareness indicates there have been entities killed because they knew too much about UFOs or said some thing about UFOs which offended certain secret agencies. This Awareness indicates that in a country where freedom of speech and other freedoms are allowed, entities have been killed for expressing or pursuing those freedoms. It is because the country is out of control in terms of the type of government and who the government really is working for, because this government has not been working for the people for some time. Our "Government" Working for the Rothschilds, Not Us! It has been working for the Rothschilds and other international bankers in their effort to create a New World Order, run by the United Nations, which is a Rothschild organization and an international banking organization. It is basically owned by the international bankers, established by them, set up by them, and influenced and controlled by them. This Awareness indicates that it is time for the people to reclaim their inalienable rights that were given to them by the Divine, and handed to them through laws of the United States Constitution, the Magna Carta, and other documents from antiquity and historical situations where mankind fought, suffered, and died to win these freedoms. This Awareness indicates that there have been, down through history, enormous efforts of individuals, first to conceive the idea of certain freedoms and rights, then once conceived, to promote those efforts to bring about the freedoms and rights. There has been much bloodshed in the pursuit of these freedoms and rights, and the great documents that come from these -- and the efforts to make these part of an institution, part of a society, part of a tradition -- have cost enormous amounts of energy from many, many people. And yet, so many entities today don't even think about what freedoms they have, don't realize the importance of the freedoms they have, and when the freedoms are lost, they don't even think about that either. It is only when the door is kicked in that they wonder: "How can this happen? How can this be? What is going on here? Why are they doing this to me?" This Awareness indicates that these entities begin to question only when their own comfort zone is affected adversely. It is now time to wake up the masses and the best documentation and information heretofore lies in this "Emancipation Packet." This Awareness asks you to spread this far and wide. Give it to school teachers, give it to religious leaders, give it to group leaders in meetings. Hang it on bulletin boards, on telephone poles, wherever. Pass it out in places where it can be presented. Lay it in post offices, on counters in banks, in grocery stores, wherever it is possible to find a blank spot to lay a copy or two. Where to Place Copies of the Documents This Awareness suggests if it looks like it is safe to put a stack in a place where the management will not pick up the entire stack and throw in the wastebasket, then do so. If there is lots of traffic, pedestrians going through or past the place, put copies there so that they can take it. Put it in coffee shops, in colleges, in high schools, places where entities collect en masse. Put it in places such as theater groups, union meeting places, places where workers meet or pass. Put a little sign that says: "Take One!" and let entities discover. The packet is self-explanatory. It is not something that needs a cover letter. There is an address. There are phone numbers where entities can get more information. It is relatively solid and complete. This Awareness indicates that you can do yourself, future generations, and everyone in the United States a great favor by putting a little money into printing this and spreading it around. It may be far more valuable in terms of money expended than donations to churches or taxes. It may be far more valuable to do this than anything you have ever spent your money for. Put Some Money Into Printing Copies! Give Deep Thought to This Action! This Awareness suggests that you give deep thought as to the significance and importance of this action. If you have large amounts of money to spare, you may wish to hire entities to help you or to get volunteers in helping to pass the information around. The more people who are ware of it, the more likely the success of the efforts of these entities to bring about the return of freedom to this country. This Awareness indicates that if no one knows about it, if few people hear about it, which is highly unlikely, the effort would come to very little, but because many packets of this information have already been spread in many ways through out the country, there will be great numbers of people who already know about this. This Awareness indicates that the reason for furthering the spread of this information is that the more people become aware of it, the less likelihood of bloodshed as a result of this effort, and this Awareness suggests that it is very important, it is a real message to send to these traitors that if they do not cease and desist in their treasonous actions, the powers will overwhelm them, for the masses now realize what they have been doing over the years. This Awareness indicates that once this message sinks in to them, they are not as likely to rally some kind of foreign troops or create some kind of national emergency to take control of this country or to resist those in the armed forces who are striving to restore the Constitution. HOW ABOUT NEWSPAPER ADS? FOLLOW-UP QUESTION: "Awareness, this information could be reduced in size slightly and could well be put on a one-page newspaper or perhaps a half page. If entities who could afford it, or banded together to place that information in the form of an advertisement in major papers, like the New York Times and Washington Post and so forth; would these papers accept such information, considering that they are establishment newspapers?" COSMIC AWARENESS: This Awareness indicates that it could be done in this way. It could be done in such a way that the papers would not dare to reject such advertisement. This Awareness indicates that it could be done in such a way as to inform the newspaper that any newspaper which does not accept this ad will be mentioned in the ad, and the ad will be placed in other newspapers around the country with inference that the editors of those other newspapers are working with the traitors. This Awareness indicates that it is time for the entities to promote freedom, and not to tip-toe along with those who are part of the Bilderbergers, the Council on Foreign Relations and Trilateralist groups who work for the bankers in trying to take over this country on behalf of the foreign powers. This Awareness indicates that it is very likely that these newspapers would accept such an ad if the ad were well-written and printed so as not to detract or to be embarrassing to the newspaper, and this documentation from the patriot group appears to be such as to be in good taste for most newspapers. This Awareness indicates that another place for such an ad would be in magazines. For example, gun or rifle magazines would be more than happy to include this kind of information. Likewise, magazines of a patriotic nature, or magazines that are of a social, critical, political quality which are not part of the New World Order agenda could accept such advertisements. Magazines that spread the news, such as "The Spotlight," for example, would be more than pleased to put such information, possibly without even being paid to do so. This Awareness indicates that the idea of printing information of this type in magazines or certain news bulletins, in many cases spiritual magazines from different groups, most of these would be receptive to such material if it were presented in a way that is compatible to their own particular messages. Many church organizations would be receptive to this kind of statement. In some instances, magazines might wish to edit and cut down the information, to present it as a kind of news bulletin, such as the first paragraph by David Alexander, could serve as a kind of news account relating to Linda Thompson and her presentation of an ultimatum to Congress and to the House of Representatives. This Awareness indicates that David generally summed up the information and could also follow with a phone number or address for copies of the full document for entities who wish to know more, and this could serve as a single column in magazines or in newspapers. One could charge for the information or refer to it as "Free Information! Call such and such a number," or "Write to this address." This Awareness indicates all of these actions can be of great benefit in getting the information out. It is ultimately important to get the information out far and wide, to make it available to entities, to let them know it is there, it is happening. It is something of great significance. CONSIDER PUBLIC ACCESS TELEVISION (Presenting the Message as a Public Notice) FOLLOW-UP QUESTION: "There is another area that could be explored, and that is the public access television channels that are available in most major cities of this country, and they will accept just about anything from a citizen who has something on his mind or has something to say. It seems to me that with only four months to go, the important thing is to get the information out to the general public and this medium could be a fast way to do so..." COSMIC AWARENESS: This is in the affirmative. This Awareness indicates that in some instances, entities might find it more acceptable to television stations and to news media if it is presented as a notice rather than promoted. In other words, if you promote it or give it in a form of promotion as though you were in favor of what is happening, it may be perceived as a kind of advertisement which the manager of the newspaper or television station may not feel comfortable with, but if you present it as a notice: "This is what is happening," and it is presented in this manner so that "Linda Thompson is doing this," and "Linda Thompson says this and this and this, and she has written the following," or "she has submitted the following Declaration of Independence and this has been sent to every member of Congress and the Senate and to news media around the country," as though you were informing the public as to what is going on; it can be made palatable to the station managers or to the newspaper editors so that it can be accepted with greater ease than if it is being promoted. In other words, if it is presented as information where you are not asking the reader or viewer to do anything, but are simply informing them of what is happening, then in many cases, the newspaper, magazine, television or radio station may find it easier to broadcast. QUESTIONER: "Just as if it's posted on a public bulletin board as a public notice..." COSMIC AWARENESS: This is in the affirmative. It can be rewritten, using the same basic information, but with different headlines, or different approaches as to its presentation. It could be posted on college campuses, pizza parlors, laundry facilities, shops where people congregate -- areas where entities mill around and there is something on the wall to read while they are standing around waiting for something. POSTING THE INFORMATION AS A "LEGAL NOTICE" QUESTION: "Most newspapers, I believe, are compelled by law to publish (without charge, in some cases) legal notices. I was wondering if something like that could be submitted to papers as a legal notice, with the request that they publish it?" COSMIC AWARENESS: This Awareness indicates this could be approached. Many times the legal notices require having to be in a certain area to comply with the need for entities involved in the area to have the notice, if it affects them in some way. This Awareness indicates that to present it in a small town in the northern part of the United States when it is happening elsewhere may not be seen by a local newspaper as a legal requirement to print such information. However, if it can be shown that the local residents have a need to know, have a need to be informed on this or are requested in some way to write for information, that may be of importance to them, such as a potential claim against the Federal Reserve banks, then it could be seen as a legal notice that requires it be posted in all areas of the country. Post the Information on Telephone Poles! This Awareness indicates that in such a case, the notice of potential claims against the Federal Reserve would have to go to a particular address, where the entities are notified of an address where they can write to get further information, and this could be sent to the Hildebrand address, or to some address that would inform them of the potential for claims. This Awareness indicates the Michigan phone number and address would be ideal for this purpose and it would create a situation where the newspaper would see a need for printing the legal notice. The question is, however: Would the newspaper feel it necessary to present the entire document? This Awareness indicates that it may or it may not. If the document were paid for or paid in part as a kind of advertisement and notice, it is likely that the newspaper would accept responsibility to print it although they may not wish to print it entirely at their own expense. This Awareness indicates there are certain areas which entities may know enough about to pursue. They may find they can be creative or may find they have to fit within certain guidelines, and in some cases, they may find they simply can't do what they wanted to do, but there are many ways of spreading the information. This Awareness indicates that fliers can be condensed and posted in restaurants, in stores, in public places, on telephone poles. All of these make for ways whereby the information can be spread. If you cannot post the entire information on a telephone pole, you may post a synthesis and an address whereby they can order or write for full details. This Awareness indicates you can even sell the information for a dollar or two to allow you to continue printing more with the money you earn from the sale of the information. You may have to promote it in such a way as to make it seem or appear to be extremely important to the reader, which indeed it is, and you may wish to promote it in such a way as to show the reader how important it is, enough so that the reader would want to pay for the information. This Awareness suggests however, that you not put any form of payment as a priority in getting this information out. If you must charge for the information in order to continue printing further information, that is clearly understandable. This Awareness suggests that the key factor should be: "How do I promote this information, and get it out to as many people as possible? Do I do it by giving it to individuals on the street, or should I direct it to individuals you might think would be responsible and turn around and give the same information to others?" There are some entities you know who will make copies or will tell others about it. These are the people you would want to give the information to, knowing that they would like to spread the information also. This Awareness indicates that to pass it out on the streets, not knowing anything about the people, and not having them come to you for their copy, or pick up a copy from some table, you can only hope that they don't throw it away before reading it. Pass it Out to Strangers on the Street This Awareness indicates that if they pick it up, they are not as likely to throw it away. If you hand it to them they are more likely to throw it away than to read it. This Awareness indicates that however if you hand information to someone, they are more likely to take it than if they see it on a table sitting there. They may not pick it up. They may not read it. If you hand it to them, they will at least take it in their hands and will look at least at the headline to see what you have given them. Thus, if you have a good strong headline, you may get them to read it if it is something of interest to them. For example, if the headline states that the government is being forced to comply with the law of the land, entities might wonder: "What is this?", and they might continue reading, or if the headline states: "Militia to Move against Congress and the Senate in September?", entities might question this, become curious and read the information. There are ways of creating headlines that cause entities to want to know more and to read in order to satisfy their curiosity. Radio AND TV TALK SHOWS BOMBARD THEM WITH CALL-INS! FOLLOW-UP QUESTION: "There is also this vast area of call-in radio and television talk shows; that if enough people would bombard some of these entities who have millions of people watching their shows every day, like Oprah Winfrey and Larry King and Geraldo Rivera and so on, to invite Linda Thompson and others who are in the patriot movement to come to their show and discuss it. COSMIC AWARENESS: This is in the affirmative. The entity Linda Thompson has already been on some of these shows and has been interviewed in regard to her stand on the Waco video tapes. This Awareness indicates that it would be very beneficial if some of these places were bombarded by a number of writers or callers who requested that she talk about this, particularly if these entities were to send this information to the talk-show host so they could see exactly what's going on. This Awareness indicates that this could be of great value. It would also be to the benefit of Linda Thompson to have a great deal of exposure at this time, for the more exposure she has, the less likely the action of killing her would be, for if she were killed it would imply to the masses who know of her that the government had her killed because she was helping to promote the patriot movement and the government does not want entities to think such thoughts. Give Phone Number for "Emancipation Packet!" This Awareness indicates that one show on national TV could reach millions of people, and if she were to offer free information through a certain phone number, those millions of people could receive the "Emancipation Packet" and thus many more people would have been made aware that can help in spreading the information still further. A MOMENTOUS TIME IN OUR HISTORY -- AND YOU CAN MAKE IT HAPPEN! QUESTION: "Thank you. Does Awareness have a closing message?" COSMIC AWARENESS: This Awareness indicates that It cannot emphasize enough the importance of this action at this time in history. One year ago, entities were complaining that the messages from this Awareness were discouraging, depressing and, indeed, there was little available to speak of that was encouraging. This Awareness indicates this is now reversed. It is the most encouraging time this Awareness has seen on this plane for many years, and this Awareness indicates that you can, through your participation and action in spreading this information, help to make the world a much better place in a very short time. It is so encouraging that you cannot even imagine how much you will benefit when these forces have their power removed and the country is turned back to the masses. How the Illegal Income Tax Evolved This Awareness indicates that before these entities began, there was no income tax. The Constitution provided only that an excise tax, a tax on goods could be required by the government. The concept of a head tax, or poll tax, which is the same as an income tax, was introduced originally not for individuals but for corporations and companies. Gradually it came to be applied to the individual and his so-called income. Originally, it was not applied to the individual, for the individual did not make "income." The individual earned wages. The income tax was meant as a tax on goods and a tax on wages or work did not indicate a gain by the worker because the worker had put out energy to receive the money for his labor and therefore, there was an equal exchange of labor and money in return. It was equally balanced. Therefore, the laborer did not gain by getting paid, for he exerted a certain amount of labor and the even exchange was not considered income, for there was also an equal outgo. Gradually, this was shifted so that the laborer also was taxed for his earnings and the outgo was never considered of value in evaluating the taxable income. This Awareness indicates that when this occurred, the worker began to move into that which is called peonage or slavery, for if you tax an entity's earnings from the labor he puts forth, then this labor is being taken from him without compensation, and the compensation that does not come implies servitude or slavery. The higher the taxes, the greater the peonage or slavery. This Awareness indicates that it was for this reason that the writers of the Constitution forbid poll tax or head tax on wages. This Awareness indicates that the 16th Amendment which created the income tax was never ratified by all of the states. Only two states agreed upon it and one, with certain reservations of the two. This Awareness indicates that these two states ratified or agreed to the income tax, but in Congress, the entity who heavily promoted the income tax stood up and made an announcement that an income tax had been ratified by all states and was now in effect. No one in Congress checked to see if this was true. They simply took the man at his word and enacted the income tax as though it was true, as though it had been ratified, and it became accepted as the 16th Amendment allowing for an income tax against the citizens of the country. This Awareness indicates it has operated all of these years illegally, and the money has gone to the Federal Reserve Bank. Prior to that, the Treasury Department created money needed by the states and spent the money into existence. They would create, for example, a highway project, spending millions of dollars, which would then go into circulation within the country, and add to the money amounts circulating in the nation and it would create more business opportunities, activities and jobs, and no one was taxed. Goods were still taxed, in the excise tax, but entities were free to keep their earnings. The Federal Reserve, in taking over, received permission to have the Treasury Department print its Federal Reserve Notes, and then loaned the notes, which cost them two and a half cents each, regardless of the denomination, whether a dollar bill or a $500 bill. The Federal Reserve then loaned these notes to the Treasury Department. So, the Treasury Department would print these notes for two and a half cents, give them to the Federal Reserve Bank and then receive them back as a loan at 100 percent of the face value, and pay interest on the notes, so that the population of the United States would have to pay taxes in order to pay back the 100 percent value of the notes borrowed, along with the interest on the notes, and create a national debt which eventually climbed into the trillions of dollars, simply because the Federal Reserve Act in 1913 was passed by a very small number of Rothschild agents serving in Congress. These were entities who had been bought off by Rothschild, and on Christmas eve, when everyone else was home, they voted the Federal Reserve Act through with only about ten people present, allowing the Federal Reserve Bank to have the Treasury Department print money for it, loaned the money back to the Treasury Department at full face value, plus interest, to be used by the American people. For 81 Years, 13 Foreign Families Have Trashed Your Freedoms! The Treasury Department, gave away all of its money to the Federal Reserve Bank through this act. The Federal Reserve Bank is a private corporation owned by foreign bankers. Thus, from that time until today, 81 years later, you have been robbed and cheated by these foreign bankers while they have created wars for your sons and daughters to sacrifice to, so that they could build up munitions, explode munitions, destroy cities, destroy countries, which would require more money, which would allow the Federal Reserve Banks to gain even greater wealth, so that the trillions and trillions of dollars could go these 13 families who apparently could not live on a balanced budget that would satisfy them. This Awareness indicates that if you understand the significance of this lopsided extremism, you will see how urgent it is to get this back to a just and equitable form of banking and financial balance. In seeing this, you will understand why it is so important to relieve the suffering, tragedy and sorrow of the world through the proper understanding of the monetary system and how it has been manipulated by entities whose conscience is totally lacking, whose compassion is lacking, who have allowed your sons and daughters to suffer in wars of unnecessary reasons, and who has stolen your life's work and energies, those of your parents, those of your children for over 80 years. This Awareness indicates it is time to take back that which the founding fathers of your country gave you, but which you, your parents and others, through negligence lack of attention, allowed to be lost and forfeited at great suffering of yourself, your children, your neighbors and your parents. It is time to go back to the Constitution, upon which a great nation was founded and thrived for over a hundred years before these demonic people robbed you of your heritage.

Egger, Jr. Commissioner of Internal Revenue On March 5, 1985, a charge of tax evasion was filed in U.S. District Court in Indianapolis, Indiana, by U.S. Attorney George Duncan. The charges were dismissed. The defense attorney, Lowell Becraft of Hunstville, Alabama, presented irrefutable evidence that the 16th amendment to the U.S. Constitution was never properly ratified. This amendment, which established the "income tax," was signed into law despite serious defects. In reality, only two states ratified the amendment, and ratification requires 36 states to be valid. The effect of this is such that every tax paid to the Treasury since 1913, is due and refundable to every citizen and business. The official position of the Service is, as it always has been, to aid and assist the citizens of the United States. We will not publish or advertise this finding as a total immediate refund would cause a serious drain on the Treasury. For those citizens who become aware of this finding and apply for a total refund, expedite their refund documents as quickly and as quietly as possible. A simple 1040X form will suffice until a new form is designed and printed. Advise each of your managers that they are not to discuss this situation with anyone. There will be no more written communications regarding this and you are to destroy this memorandum. The Secretary of the Treasury assures me that there will be no reduction in the workforce as this refunding activity will take a minimum of five years to complete. Further information will be provided to you as need arises. (signed) Roscoe L. Egger, Jr. Commissioner of Internal Revenue ------------------------ HOW TO GET STARTED! The documents are included at the end of this file. *** Look in the Yellow Pages of your telephone directory under "Printers" or "Copies" There are many places such as Kinkos (a huge printing chain) with locations in most major cities across America. They will print these documents, collate them and staple them for about 5 cents a page, less in quantity. *** Don't overlook the idea of mailing these out. You can buy a packet of 500 envelopes at any stationary or printing and copy outlet. Mail these out to radio and TV programs along with a note requesting they get Linda Thompson on their show immediately, for time is short. Send these to local politicians preachers, teachers, city councils, etc. Send to movie and TV stars and particularly those who host talk shows (Barbara Walters, Hugh Downs, Geraldo, 60 Minutes, etc. TV Guide lists addresses). *** Order the book "Star Guide 1994" from Axiom Information Resources, PO Box 8015, Ann Arbor, Ml 48107 for $14.90, which includes postage. This book contains thousands of names and address of film stars, athletes, TV personalities, authors, politicians, etc. These are influential people who could be interested in following up on the information. TV tabloid shows such as "Hard Copy," "A Current Affair," etc. would most likely feature the story Linda Thompson is releasing. *** The information can also be released in the form of chain letters, either in its present format or in a condensed version. At the bottom, print: PRINT 50 COPIES AND SEND TO OTHERS AT ONCE! *** If you have access to a FAX machine (these are also available in supermarkets, stationary stores, etc., for public use) send the documents to important people. They reach the people in a matter of seconds. The important thing is to try to get the documents into the hands of as many people as possible in the next few months, particularly those who can make more copies to inform even more people. Please Note: The information to reprint and spread far and wide is enclosed at the end of this file. It is not necessary to reprint this newsletter, just the information from Linda Thompson. --------------- From the Editor... PLEASE NOTE: At the time David Alexander sent us this information, it came from the Internet and did not contain the cover sheet "Alert" that the hard copy does. Therefore, that information was not read to Awareness. This "Alert" sheet asks entities to join the militia or start one if there is none in their area. Please understand that neither Awareness, the Interpreter or CAC is asking any of you to join any militia or participate on any march on Washington D.C. We are asking you only to help scatter this information far and wide in order to alert entities to the treason being committed by government officials and the tragedies that the illegal Federal Reserve Bank has created for all masses these many years. Although Awareness clarified the question David asked at the beginning of this reading, both the Interpreter and the editor later had second thoughts: "Was Awareness seeing the entire picture? Was it still possible the entire movement was somehow being staged to get all the patriots together and then eliminate them in one fell swoop?" Paranoia took us over for a few days and we stopped all work on this newsletter. Paul phoned several times expressing his concern, so I suggested he have his wife, Roshanna, help get him into the Awareness trance level and ask a question that would clarify the situation. What follows is the question and the response from Awareness, which prompted us to release this information to you. A Clarification on the March on Washington May 11, 1994: QUESTION: "While in Olympia, Paul did a reading about documents sent to CAC pertaining to an Ultimatum by Linda Thompson, an attorney acting on behalf of the Waco Branch Davidians who were burned to death when their building was attacked by armored tanks and troops. She has sent an ultimatum to the Congress demanding that they start following the U.S. Constitution or face arrest by a militia of armed forces on September 1, 1994. She also presented a "Declaration of Independence, 1994," which will be delivered to the House and Senate at that time. Awareness suggested this was perhaps the most significant thing to happen to this country since its founding in 1776, and suggested CAC members support it full. Upon his return from Olympia, Paul called the number in Linda Thompson's document and it was a recording that started asking questions -- seeking information on the caller. He became concerned that it might be a trick to round up patriots and sympathizers on a database of names and addresses so they could be picked up later and imprisoned. I might add, we had just seen Schindler's List about Nazi Germany's rounding up of Jews and others for imprisonment and extermination and that might have prompted some of the paranoia. Nevertheless, he was concerned about the questioning and the fact that it was being recorded for a database without any human contact. He did not want to see CAC members get their names listed on some file that might deliberately or even inadvertently fall into the wrong hands and endanger them in the future. Would Awareness comment on this concern?" COSMIC AWARENESS: This Awareness suggests that the concern was reasonable under the circumstances. This Awareness wishes to clarify that It did not suggest CAC members give "full support" to Linda Thompson's efforts. It acknowledged this woman's courage for taking a step to restore the Law of the Land, the U.S. Constitution, and indicated that she had more support on this than that term "militia" might mean to many, that there were regular military forces working with her on this also. This Awareness did not at any time state or suggest that entities should join the militia for this action, nor that they join the march on Washington. It acknowledged that there may be millions of people working in support of this event, but that does not necessarily mean that millions will march on Washington at that time. The Awareness suggested only that CAC members become aware of what is happening, the significance of it, and to alert others of the situation and significance. This is an opportunity to alert the masses to what most CAC people have known for many years, but which others have often looked upon as "foolish conspiracy-thinking and paranoia" on their part. Truly aware people do not knowingly put themselves in harm's way and this Awareness would not advise them to do so. It is sufficient to alert the masses of the Linda Thompson situation. The more widespread the information, the less likely the bloodshed. It is not necessary to join an army and fight a war over it unless one is so inclined from their own inner guidance. This Awareness will not direct, request or suggest entities do this.

ALERT! ! The Declaration of Independence of 1994 is being distributed nationwide for signature, including airdrops over cities. It will be delivered by the Militia in September, 1994 to the White House. The attached Ultimatum was sent by certified mail to every member of the U.S. House and Senate by April 21, 1994. ALL MILITIA UNITS WILL CONVENE at 8:00 a.m., Monday, September 19, 1994, in Washington, D.C., armed and in uniform, to deliver the Declaration of Independence to the White House and to enforce the ultimatum. The militia will arrest Congressmen who have failed to uphold their oaths of office, who then will be tried for Treason by Citizens' Courts. POLICE AND MILITARY: We have support from many state, city and county police agencies and US military. This is the country and the Constitution, that all of us have sworn to uphold and defend against all enemies, and the enemies are corrupt leaders who have duped our police into being cannon fodder -- to disarm America -- while these same corrupt leaders have reduced our Army's strength from 18 divisions to 11, and sent them out of the country, to weaken our numbers. WHY THESE EXTREME MEASURES ARE NECESSARY: 1. The Federal Reserve is not federal, it is a private corporation of bankers. These bankers "volunteered" to finance the United States government when it became bankrupt during World War I. Special legislation was then passed to allow these bankers to print paper money (only the Treasury is legally authorized to coin money), which would be called a "loan" to the U.S. government. In turn, the U.S. government agreed to repay this loan by taxing American citizens. Only a fraction of the interest is being paid on the loan, and none of the principal. These same bankers set the national interest rate and control the economy. Our national debt is the amount owed to these bankers. Our tax dollars line their pockets. The country is, literally, bankrupt. 2. The Federal Government, under the Constitution, never had the legal authority to pass a national tax on income and the 16th Amendment (the law that enacted the income tax) was never ratified, as required by law. The Federal Government has no authority over States and never had the legal jurisdiction to pass laws making any crimes "federal" or subjecting people to a national federal criminal law system. Yet, a combination of illegally passed laws has allowed the federal government to create national federal law enforcement agencies that terrorize the American public, seize property, and even kill, to keep their illegal power. 3. House to house searches and seizures are being conducted without warrants across the land. Troop movement markers (bright colored reflective stickers on the backs of road signs) and U.N. troops are already in place in this country, prepared to engage in "peacekeeping" against us. Surveillance cameras are in place atop tall light posts along highways (look for antennas sticking from black boxes on the extremely tall light posts), cars are equipped with bar codes and tracking devices, a national "ID card" and cashless society are imminent, so we may all be tracked in our every movement, no penny left unaccounted. Detention camps are already built, nationwide, to house "dissidents" who oppose these plans. The country has already been divided into ten regions for ten regional governments under martial law. Our national media has become nothing but the official mouthpiece of the government, putting forth false "polls" and outright propaganda to sway public opinion, while not reporting countless and outrageous abuses of the public by federal agents. In August, 1992, an FBI sniper blew off the side of Vickie Weaver's head as she held a 10-month-old baby in her arms, 96 people were shot and burned to death in Waco, 25 of them children, 17 of them under the age of 5, by FBI and military. We don't need any more proof. 4. Congress has been wholly unresponsive to demands by the American people to revoke these illegal laws and leave the states to their own government. Instead, Congress has passed unconstitutional laws that it has no authority to pass, but which make it a federal crime to own weapons and laws that put federal law enforcement and military in our streets and houses. Find the local militia in your area. If there is not one, start one. Be in Washington, D.C. in September. Your liberty, your children's future, and this nation's freedom depend upon it.

and WHEREAS, the federal government of the United States of America, through unlawful Executive Orders, and through legislation passed without quorum and without proper ratification or otherwise unlawfully enacted under mere color of law by members of the legislative branch, have usurped the Constitutional authority of the sovereign states and sovereign citizens of this country, and laws which are unlawful and unconstitutional have been enacted in voluminous number which have outrageously exceeded the boundaries of law and decency; and WHEREAS, the people of this country have been exploited and subjugated to an unlawful authority by an unlawful system of loans from a private banking institution, known as the Federal Reserve, and been forced, even at gunpoint, to submit to an unlawful federal income tax which is not and never has been within the authority of the federal government to enact or enforce, all to the benefit of private individuals and corporations at the expense of the liberty, lives, and property of the citizens of this nation; and WHEREAS, persons acting under color of law as federal agents, under the direction of those claiming to be elected officials operating under color of law, sworn to uphold and defend the Constitution of the United States, have infringed upon the rights of citizens to keep and bear arms, have conducted unlawful warrantless house to house searches and seizures, have assaulted and killed sovereign citizens of this country on the false pretense of "gun control," "child abuse," "the war on drugs" and a plethora of unlawful statutes enacted to unlawfully control the lives and liberty of the citizens of this country; WHEREAS, elections are now controlled through the power of committees and lobbies wielding the most money to obtain electoral votes or sway the nomination of candidates and persuade the enactment of legislation that has made it impossible for the common citizen to participate as a candidate in an election or for the vote of the common citizen to be meaningful; and WHEREAS, through an unconstitutional and unlawfully enacted "income tax," the federal government has created a "carrot and stick" that has seduced and coerced the elected officials of the several states to submit to the unlawful incursion of the federal government and its agents into the sovereign territory of each state, as a trade off for the receipt of these ill gotten proceeds; THEREFORE, YOU ARE COMMANDED to uphold your oath and duty to the citizens of this country, to uphold the Constitution and the rights of the citizens of this country, and in so doing, you are commanded to personally initiate legislation and do all things necessary to: Repeal the 14th, 16th, and 17th amendments to the Constitution of the United States and to publicly acknowledge that the federal government has no jurisdiction to make or enforce criminal laws outside its territories, limited to the area of Washington, D.C., and the property and territories actually owned by the United States, which does not include any State within the several states of the united states; and Repeal the Brady Bill and NAFTA; Repeal the Drug Interdiction Act and 10 USC 375, allowing the use of military equipment and personnel against United States citizens and providing a backdoor method to fund "national guard," under the guise that the guard is a "state asset" even though the federal government provides the salary, funding and support and none of these units is counted as a State Guard asset and the guard and military troops thereby are state assets in name only; and publicly acknowledge that the federal government, through no means, may use military force or equipment against any person on U.S. soil or upon the soil of any sovereign state, except in the case of a declared war in the event of an actual invasion by troops of a foreign country within the boundaries of the United States of America, and only then, against such foreign troops, not citizens or residents of this country; and Immediately remove any and all foreign troops and equipment and to immediately identify each and every federal military troop and federal law enforcement or tax enforcement agent and all equipment now located within the boundaries of any and every state, including all assets of military or task force "special operations" units, CIA, NSA, or any other covert law enforcement, quasi-law enforcement or military agency or activity; and Declare that the United States of America is not operating under the authority of the United Nations; and Declare the federal debt to the Federal Reserve null and void, unconstitutional, and without effect and order that currency no longer be printed by the Federal Reserve or any entity other than the Treasury of the United States, backed by gold within the possession of the United States; and Declare that the federal government does not now have and never has had the legal authority to enact or enforce criminal laws outside the area of Washington, D.C., or outside its territories or its own property, such as military bases, and never upon the soil of any sovereign state, and that all such laws are null and void and without effect; Convene a full Congressional inquiry, to be conducted publicly, by an independent prosecutor selected from a person who has no association in any way whatsoever with any agency of the federal government, into the events in Waco, Texas, from February 28, 1993 through the present, at the property known as Mt. Carmel, with the special prosecutor to have the full power to convene a grand jury from the citizens of all the 50 states, obtain indictments, and issue subpoenas duces tecum and subpoenas for testimony before a grand jury, and to prosecute any and all persons, regardless of their position in government, for any crimes for which a true bill of indictment is returned. You have until 8 a.m. September 19, 1994, the Monday following the second full week that Congress reconvenes in September in to personally initiate legislation to this effect and to do all things necessary to effect this legislation and the restoration of a Constitutional government within this country. If you do not personally attend to these demands, you will be identified as a Traitor, and you will be brought up on charges for Treason before a Court of the Citizens of this Country. Linda D. Thompson Acting Adjutant General Unorganized Militia of the United States of America Pursuant to 10 USC 311 and Articles I and II of the Bill of Rights 3850 S. Emerson Ave., Suite E, Indianapolis, Indiana 46203 Telephone: (317) 780-5200 ------------------------------------- Declaration of Independence of 1994 A Declaration by the Sovereign Citizens of the Several States Within the United States of America When in the Course of human Events, it becomes necessary for one People to dissolve the Political Bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the Powers of the Earth, the separate and equal Station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God entitle them, a decent Respect to the Opinions of Mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the Separation. We hold these Truths to be self-evident, that all people 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 the people, 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, laying its Foundation on such Principles, and organizing its Powers in such Form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient Causes; and accordingly all Experience hath shewn, that Mankind are more disposed to suffer, while Evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the Forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long Train of Abuses and Usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object, evinces a Design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their Right, it is their Duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future Security. Such has been the patient Sufferance of the people of the several states of the United States of America; and such is now the Necessity which constrains them to alter their former Systems of Government. The History of the present federal government of the United States of America is one of repeated Injuries and Usurpations, all having in direct Object the Establishment of an absolute Tyranny over these States and over the sovereign citizens within the several states. To prove this, let Facts be submitted to a candid World. All Branches, the Executive, Legislative, and Judicial, of the federal government, have refused Assent to Laws, the most wholesome and necessary for the public Good, the most blatant example of which is the total contempt in which they have held the Constitution of the United States and the rights of the citizens of this country protected by the limitations upon government set forth in the Constitution; The President and Congress have forbidden state Governors to pass Laws of immediate and pressing Importance, under inducement or threat of the loss of federal funding, unless suspended in their Operation till their Assent should be obtained; and when so suspended, they have utterly neglected to attend to them; The legislative branch has refused to pass other Laws for the Accommodation of large Districts of People, unless those People would relinquish the Right of Representation in the Legislature, a Right inestimable to them, and formidable to Tyrants only, as evidenced through the passage of the Seventeenth Amendment to the Constitution of the United States, and the present federal voting system, which is a national sham and disgrace, and prevents the common man from participating either as a candidate, or by meaningful vote for a candidate of his choosing in a truly free and open election; The Congress convenes in a manner which is inaccessible to the general public who are not allowed to address the Congress nor to directly supervise the activities of Congress, and publishes its business in records not readily accessible to the People, intentionally obtuse in the construction of both the laws and the publication thereof, for the Purposes of deceiving and fatiguing the people into Compliance with such Measures. The federal judicial offices and congress have set themselves wholly apart from and above the people, immune even from suit for their transgressions, answerable to none, and responsive to none except those who further their private interests; The federal government, through unlawfully constituted federal agencies which purport to be "law enforcement," and under the color of laws enacted by the legislature which exceed the constitutional jurisdiction of the federal government, has repeatedly murdered or incarcerated those who have opposed with manly Firmness the Invasions on the Rights of the People; The federal government has endeavored to prevent the Population of these States; for that Purpose obstructing the Laws for Naturalization of Foreigners; refusing to pass others to encourage their Migrations hither, and raising the Conditions of new Appropriations of Lands; and has endeavored to depopulate the United States, and for that purpose, has waged chemical, biological, and radioactive warfare upon the people, and encouraged and funded abortions and acts of genocide upon large populations of the people; All the branches of the federal government have obstructed the Administration of Justice, by subjugating the federal courts to the department of Treasury and the Executive Branch, and by refusing Assent to Laws for establishing Judiciary Powers and the independent investigation of crimes committed by agencies and officials of the federal government, insulating them from their crimes through executive pardon, legislated and judicially created immunity from criminal and civil prosecution; The Federal Judiciary have been selected on the will and whim of the executive branch and a Congress inattentive to anything but their own special interests and the will and money of lobbying groups, and the judiciary is dependent upon them for the Tenure of their Offices, and the Amount and payment of their Salaries; The federal government has erected a Multitude of new Offices, and sent hither Swarms of Officers to harass our People, and eat out their Substance; The federal government has kept among us, in Times of Peace, Standing Armies, without the consent of our Legislatures, or through the seduction or coercion of the state legislatures through the mechanism of "federal tax monies" offered in exchange for the cooperation of the state legislatures in handing over the sovereignty of each state; The Military has been rendered independent of, and superior to the Civil Power, through the enactment of laws which wholly abridge the Constitution of the United States and which seek to avoid the effect of the Posse Comitatus Act through surreptitious and covert methods; The President, officers of the executive branch, and Congress have combined with others to subject us to a Jurisdiction foreign to our Constitution, and unacknowledged by our Laws; giving Assent to their acts of pretended Legislation; For quartering large Bodies of Armed Troops, foreign and federal, among us; For protecting agents of the federal government and military, from any trial or by a mock Trial, from Punishment for any Murders which they should commit on the Inhabitants of these States; For regulating and strangulating our Trade with all Parts of the World; For imposing Taxes on us without our Consent; for failing to publicly acknowledge, more than 60 years ago, that the federal government was in fact, bankrupt, but instead, concealing these facts from the people and entering into a fraudulent agreement to finance the bankruptcy, by creating and perpetuating a fraudulent monetary system, to the enrichment of private bankers, insurance companies, and their stockholders, called the "federal reserve system", whereby paper notes are created to "loan" to the federal government at interest rates fixed by these private bankers, and where only a portion of the interest and none of the principal on these loans is paid each year; a system whereby the payments are extorted from the people through a fraudulent, coercive, unjust and unlawful federal tax scheme foisted upon the people without their knowledge or consent and through a labyrinth of licensing agencies and required licenses for all manner of endeavors, which are themselves nothing more than taxes by another name; all enforced by unbridled terrorist tactics and fear produced by the brute force of an unrestrained government that seizes property and imprisons those who do not "voluntarily" submit. For depriving us, in many Cases, of the Benefits of Trial by Jury; For proposing and enacting legislation to federally criminalize, indeed to suffer the death penalty in many cases or at the least the forfeiture of property, for the free exercise of the unalienable rights of free speech and free press, freedom of worship, freedom of assembly, or the right to keep and bear arms; For enacting legislation to seize the property of the people under a myriad of pretenses, and to imprison persons on the testimony of unknown, unidentified, and often paid, informants, who become informants to secure for themselves a more favorable position in a prosecution brought against them, and all within the states where the federal government has no legal powers of law enforcement; For abolishing the free System of English Laws in the states, and establishing therein an arbitrary Government, and enlarging its Boundaries, so as to render it at once an Example and fit Instrument for introducing the same absolute Rule into these states; For taking away our Charters, abolishing our most valuable Laws, and altering fundamentally the Forms of our Governments; For usurping the power of our own Legislatures, and declaring themselves invested with Power to legislate for us in all Cases whatsoever; The federal government has abdicated Government here, by declaring us out of its Protection and waging War against us; The federal government has plundered our Seas, ravaged our Coasts, burnt our towns, and destroyed the Lives of our People; The federal government, at this Time, is transporting large Armies of foreign Mercenaries to complete the works of Death, Desolation, and Tyranny, already begun, often under the color of the law of the United Nations, and with circumstances of Cruelty and Perfidy, scarcely paralleled in the most barbarous Ages, and totally unworthy of a civilized Nation; The government has constrained our fellow Citizens taken Captive on the high Seas to bear Arms against their Country, to become the Executioners of their Friends and Brethren, or to fall themselves by their Hands; The federal government has excited domestic Insurrections amongst us; In every stage of these Oppressions we have Petitioned for Redress in the most humble Terms: Our repeated Petitions have been answered only by repeated Injury. A President, whose Character is thus marked by every act which may define a Tyrant, is unfit to be the Ruler of a free People. We, therefore, the sovereign citizens of the several states of the united states, which now form the United States of America, appealing to the Supreme Judge of the World for the Rectitude of our Intentions, do, in our own names and right and by the authority of God Almighty, solemnly Publish and Declare, that each of the sovereign citizens undersigned are, and of Right ought to be, Free and Independent Sovereign Citizens; that they are absolved from all Allegiance to the federal government of the United States of America, and that all political Connection between them and the federal government of the United States of America, is and ought to be totally dissolved; and that as Free and Independent Sovereign Citizens, each has the full Power to levy War, conclude Peace, contract Alliances, establish Commerce, and to do all other Acts and Things which an Independent Sovereign may of right do. And for the support of this declaration, with a firm Reliance on the Protection of divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our lives, our Fortunes, and our sacred Honor.
