How could such a huge Act go basically unnoticed and unaware from the public? How could an Act that radically changed America be ignored to such a high degree that people today have no clue what we have become? It was a great scam that continues today and has dire consequences that the bankers are looking to capitalize on and capitalize huge! Next time you use the term “country” or “nation” to describe America, you may just want to reconsider that. Nothing could be farther from the truth and the Act of 1871 made it all legal to happen. So, what by definition, have we become? A corporation or United States of Corporations would be a better choice of wording. Sounds strange and far-fetched? Let’s go over how this took place then and see if it is far-fetched or what is considered the law.

Washington D.C. was created under deception starting in 1868 under the 41st Congress when they gave Washington an area of jurisdiction and 100 square miles of land known as the District of Columbia. In 1874 some of the land was taken back leaving the modern-day District of Columbia 68 square miles. I do not want to jump the gun, however, I do want to point out this little known fact. You can not under the Act of 1871 be an American and a citizen at the same time. It is impossible under this act. You are either an American or a citizen of the United States. Anyone who makes the claim of a citizen of the United States is pledging their allegiance to Washington or the District of Columbia. They are not Americans as you can be a U.S. citizen or an American. Kind of changes the immigration debate, doesn’t it? More on this later in the article.

The Act of 1871 changed America from a country to a corporation

The Act of 1871 incorporated America and made it in essence, The United States of Corporations making the modern-day 50 states franchises of the mother company, Washington D.C. Why is this not taught in Civic classes around the country, uh, corporation? Because it would take the power away from the very same people who the Act empowered. The handful of elitist that gained control through the Act. You could kick all the politicians out of Washington, elect a whole new Congress, change the president and vice president and the new crop of politicians would pick up and run the corporation the same as the last crop. Until the Act of 1871 is addressed and abolish then Washington will not change and the agenda will continue.


A Moment In History

The date is February 21, 1871 and the Forty-First Congress is in session. This is covered in “Acts of the Forty-First Congress,” Section 34, Session III, chapters 61 and 62. On this date in the history of our nation, Congress passed an Act titled: “An Act To Provide A Government for the District of Columbia.” This is also known as the “Act of 1871.” What this means is that Congress, under no constitutional authority to do so, created a separate form of government for the District of Columbia, which is a ten-mile square parcel of land.

The Act of 1871 came in the most manipulative way, the way bankers always work, as America was debt ridden from the Civil War and near bankrupt. The international bankers, headed by the Rothschild family, seized the opportunity to loan money to the fledgling country and used this as not a way to get its foot in the door, but more so to kick the door in and claim America which they were wanting to do for some time now.  The conniving international bankers were not about to lend our floundering nation any money without some serious stipulations.

In essence, this Act formed the corporation known as THE UNITED STATES. Note the capitalization, because it is important. This corporation, owned by foreign interests, moved right in and shoved the original “organic” version of the Constitution into a dusty corner. With the “Act of 1871,” our Constitution was defaced in the sense that the title was block-capitalized and the word “for” was changed to the word “of” in the title. The original Constitution drafted by the Founding Fathers, was written in this manner:

“The Constitution for the united states of America”.

The usurped version reads: “THE CONSTITUTION OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA”. It is the corporate constitution. It is not the same document that the founding fathers originally drafted and agreed upon. The corporate constitution operates in an economic capacity and has been used to fool the People into thinking it is the same parchment that governs the Republic. It, of course, is not.

In preparation for stealing America, the puppets of Britain’s banking cabal had already created a second government, a Shadow Government designed to manage what the common
herd believed was a democracy, but what really was an incorporated UNITED
STATES. Together this chimera, this two-headed monster, disallowed the
common herd all rights of sui juris. [you, in your sovereignty].

The U.S. Government declared bankruptcy in 1933 in Roosevelt’s executive orders 6073, 6102, 6111, AND 6260 and lost its sovereignty. This was confirmed in Perry v. US (1935) 294 U.S. 330-381, 79LEd 912, as well as 31 U.S.C. 5112 and 5119 and 12 U.S.C. 95a. Title 28, 3002(15)(3): States that all departments of the UNITED STATES CORPORATION are part of the corporation.

“It is an established fact that the United States Federal Government has been dissolved by the Emergency Banking Act, March 9, 1933, 48 stat. 1, Public Law 89-719; declared by President Roosevelt, being bankrupt and insolvent, H.J.R. 192, 73rd Congress m session June 5, 1933 – Joint Resolution To Suspend The Gold Standard and Abrogate The Gold Clause dissolved the Sovereign Authority of the United States and the official capacities of all United States Governmental Offices, Officers, and Departments and is further evidence that the United States Federal Government exists today in name only.”

– United States Congressional Record, March 17, 1993 Vol. 33

UNITED STATES CODE, Title 28, 3002(15)(A) — reiterates:
“The United States government is a foreign corporation with respect to a State” (NY re: Merriam 36 N.E. 505 1441 S. 0.1973, 14 L. Ed. 287). Volume 20: Corpus Juris Sec. 1785
The United States of America is a corporation endowed with the capacity to sue and be sued, to convey and receive property.1 Marsh. Dec. 177, 181. …but it is proper to observe that no suit can be brought against the United States without authority of law. Bouvier’s Law , 5 definition of United States.

“Our corporate form of governance is based on Roman Civil Law and Admiralty, or Maritime, Law, which is also known as the ‘Divine Right of Kings’ and the ‘Law of the Seas’ — another fact of American history not taught in our schools.

Actually, Roman Civil Law was fully established in the colonies before our nation began, and then became managed by private international law. In other words, the government — the government created for the District of Columbia via the Act of 1871 – operates solely under Private International Law, not Common Law, which was the foundation of our Constitutional Republic. “This fact has impacted all Americans in concrete ways. For instance, although Private International Law is technically only applicable within the District of Columbia, and NOT in the other states of the Union, the arms of the Corporation of the UNITED STATES are called ‘departments’ — for example, the Justice Department, the Treasury Department. And those departments affect everyone, no matter where (in what state) they live. Each department belongs to the corporation — to the UNITED STATES. “Refer to any UNITED STATES CODE (USC). Note the capitalization; this is evidence of a corporation, not a Republic. For example, In Title 28 3002 (15) (A) (B) (C), it is unequivocally stated that the UNITED STATES is a corporation.

What this great deception means is that the members of Congress do NOT work for us, for you and me. They work for the Corporation, for the UNITED STATES. No wonder we
can’t get them to do anything on our behalf, or meet or demands, or answer our questions. “Technically, legally, or any other way you want to look at the matter, the corporate government of the UNITED STATES has no jurisdiction or authority in ANY State of the Union (the Republic) beyond the District of Columbia. Let those words sink in, then ask yourself, could this deception have occurred without full knowledge and complicity of the Congress? Do you think it happened by accident? If you do, now you’re deceiving yourself.

There are no accidents, no coincidences. Face the facts and confront the truth. Remember, you are presumed to know the law. They know you don’t know the law or, for that matter, your history. Why? Because no concerted effort was ever made to teach or otherwise inform you. as a Sovereign, you are entitled to full disclosure of all facts. As a slave, you are entitled to nothing other than what the corporation decides to ‘give’ you. Remember also that ‘Ignorance of the law is no excuse.’ It’s your responsibility and obligation to learn the law and know how it applies to you.

As an instrument of the international bankers, the UNITED STATES owns you from birth to death. It also holds ownership of all your assets, of your property, even of your children. Think long and hard about all the bills taxes, fines, and licenses you have paid for or purchased. Yes, they had you by the pockets through debt. If you don’t believe it, read the 14th Amendment. See how ‘free’ you really are. Ignorance of the facts led to your silence. Silence is construed as consent; consent to be beneficiaries of a debt you did not incur.

As a Sovereign People we have been deceived for hundreds of years; we think we are free, but in truth we are servants of the corporation. Congress committed treason against the People in 1871. Honest men could have corrected the fraud and treason. But apparently there weren’t enough honest men to counteract the lust for money and power. We lost more freedom than we will ever know, thanks to corporate infiltration of our so-called ‘government. Do you think that any soldier who died in any of our many wars would have fought if he or she had known the truth? Do you think one person would have laid down his/her life for a corporation?

The District of Columbia Organic Act of 1871 aka An Act to provide a Government for the District of Columbia (41st Congress, 3rd Session., Ch. 62, 16 Stat. 419, enacted 1871-02-21) is an Act of Congress, which revoked the individual charters of the City of Washington, the City of Georgetown, and the County of Washington and created a new city government for the entire District of Columbia. The legislation effectively merged what had been separate municipalities within the federal territory into a single entity. It is for this reason that the city, while legally named the District of Columbia, is still commonly known as Washington, D.C. However, this act was abolished in 1874, and while the name did not change, the territorial Governor was replaced with a three-member Board of Commissioners appointed by the President. This system existed until 1974 when the District of Columbia Home Rule Act allowed for District residents to elect their own mayor.

What the Congress did with the passage of the Act of 1871 was create an entirely new document, a constitution for the government of the District of Columbia. The kind of government THEY created was a corporation. The new, altered Constitution serves as the constitution of the corporation, and not that of America.

Follow The Money, Honey

As the saying goes, follow the money. Anytime there is blatant and clear injustice, especially in the political world, a good practice to use to find out why or how this happened is to find out who and what entities prospered from the actions. This is exactly what happened with the signing of the Act of 1871. As mentioned before the international bankers wanted America and they bought it.

According to a report titled The Federal Reserve Directives a study of corporate banking influence conducted by the Committee on Banking Currency and Housing, the House of Representatives in August of 1976 concluded all major financial banking cartels of the United States are all subsidiaries of the London Bank of England. N.M. Rothschild Bank owns every major bank in the United States. The list includes Lehman Brothers, Morgan Stanley, National City Bank, Chase Manhattan, and many others. Without question or debate, the Rothschilds are always at the root of the problem where money is involved.

Every time you pay your taxes your wealth is being transferred to the Queen of England and her heirs. These people are more commonly known and referred to as esquires. What is an esquire? An esquire is defined as a man belonging to the higher order of England ranking just below a knight. We also call them attorneys who handle the process of dealing with the trading and laws of the ruling Crown of England through their laws and statues through the use of  Admiralty Law.

America And The United States

America and the United States are two separate entities. I know this can be confusing since we have been sold that they are one in the same, however we are not. The only connection the 50 states have to the United States Corporation is by contract and/or franchise agreement. A part of this franchise agreement is the status of people who call themselves citizens.The contract between the people and the 50 states is an Adhesion Citizen Contract. This contract is also known as the 14th Amendment which was ratified on July 28, 1868.

The second part of the Franchise Contract mentions that it “allows an individual or group to carry out specific commercial activities. These activities fall in a category called Interstate Commerce. Article 1, Section 8, Clause 3 of the United States Constitution is known as the Commerce Clause. What it states is that Congress has the power to regulate commerce with foreign nations among the states and the Indian tribes of the time. This power fell under a regulatory body called the Interstate Commerce Commission (ICC) established in 1887.

Who Is Your Allegiance Really To?

Every time you sign your name or take an oath you are really changing your status form American to citizen, or employee. So, what about the term American Citizenship? According to law when that term is applied you are denoting that you are a United States Citizen contracted with a birth certificate, social security number or through your state franchise agreement which is the Adhesion Contract, or the 14th Amendment. You can not be an American as that would imply that you are a free person that has not made a contractual agreement with the United States Corporation. You are not an American, but a legal citizen of the United States living in a foreign state. It is not a matter of you believing this, but what is considered law and has not been reversed as it still stands today.

The receipt you are given at birth from the United States Corporation

The receipt you are given at birth from the United States Corporation

Every four years the citizens get an illusion of choice in selecting the new President, or spokesperson for the United States Corporation, but the fact that we are a corporation being governed as such is never brought up. The reason being is quite simple. We would not stand for it and would immediately seek action crumbling the house of cards that the New World Order has been stacking. It is imperative to them that they keep the game going and make us feel as though we are a free country selecting our leaders through a democratic process when in actuality the only ones that get the fake two parties support are the ones the Corporations “Board of Directors” have pre selected. They keep their machine oiled and greased on our labor and ignorance of real history.

We can see now why we keep winning global wars, yet our liberties and freedoms are being taken and legislated in such a way that it drives us deeper into serfdom. The ruling class are not far from total control and while it may seem we can “vote” our way out of this the only real solution is to break the system we are being controlled in. Continuing in this system and expecting real change is like supporting the Federal Reserve and expecting real currency. It is not only illogical, but impossible. I believe this is the information that we should be spreading and bringing awareness to. They only have power if we surrender it. When we don’t fight they win by implied consent and we lose the our natural rights and liberties. It is time to fire the bosses and abolish the Corporation.
