There is a movement afoot in
this country today that is made up of disaffected and often dispossessed
Americans who are seeking a better way through a wholesale return to
their view of the past. This movement has been called many things:
the antigovernment movement, the sovereignty movement, and the
common law courts movement. Regardless of the name attached
to the beliefs and the people who follow them, one common denominator
exists: a feeling of despair, rooted in personal and pecuniary
loss, and manifested in a new, defiant mistrust and spite for the ways
of the current government. This guide focuses on the ways in which
followers of these movements impact the operation of our
state court systems.
The purpose of this booklet is to
revive, as Jefferson put it, “The Ancient Principles.”
It is not
to promote lawlessness or a return to the jungle. The “Ancient Principles”
refer to the Ten Commandments
and the Common Law. The Common Law is, in simple terms,
just plain common
sense and has its roots in the Ten Commandments.
A lusty, gusty attack on "The Law"
as a curious, antiquated institution which, through outworn procedures,
technical jargon and queer mummery, enables a group of medicine-men to
dominate our social and political lives and our business, to their

When written and served properly, they have been very
successful at stopping imperial suits - before they get started.

In order for any contract to be valid, there must be 'full disclosure,' 'good faith,' 'valuable consideration,' and 'clean hands.' Here is what the banks advertise: "Come to our bank. We have money to loan." Is this really what happens?
you entered into a loan contract with a bank, you signed a note or
contract promising to pay the bank back, and you agreed to provide
collateral that the bank could seize if you did not repay
the loan. This contract supposedly qualified you to receive
the bank's money. But did the bank provide 'full disclosure'
of all of the terms of this agreement? Read and decide for
yourself if the bank was acting in 'good faith', that you
received 'valuable consideration', and that your 'signature'
on that agreement is valid.
Court rules against Banks

Court in Massachusetts ruled against U.S. Bancorp and Wells Fargo & Co. Friday (01/07/11) in a widely watched mortgage foreclosure case
that could have serious implications for the Nation's largest Banks.
National law is more a moral
than a legal science. Law is a rule of action prescribed
by competent authority. Moreover, all Law implies some sanction
to enforce it. Now National law is that which defines and regulates the
social duties of Nation to Nation. Where then is the authority that
prescribes such duties, and where the sanction that enforces them? To find these we must go back to the individual Man, and see whether such duties appertain to him; by
what authority, and with what sanctions.

like to encourage you to visit. This Article of Admiralty Law is
very well written and it explains why we no longer own our home or have

This is a very interesting transcript of an
interview with an employee of a State Marriage

The commercial lien, which is
authorized both by the common law and by Title 15 of
the United States Code (USC), is reportedly the
same lien the IRS uses to take Americans' homes
and cars. However, some pro se litigants do not depend
upon Title 15, but upon the common law of
negotiable instruments (a.k.a. Commercial Law).
As such, it's almost impossible
to remove a commercial lien without the approval of the individual
claimant who filed the lien. Although a commercial lien
can be challenged by a court at common law or by a
7th Amendment jury trial, it does not require a
court process or a court judgment for its establishment, validity,
or execution. Therefore, it appears that the courts may not
be able to simply extinguish this lien on their own discretion (or on
motion from the lien debtors) without the voluntary approval of
the person who filed the lien.
Traditionally, these liens can
only be removed by the voluntary decision of the person who filed
the lien, by the decision of a constitutional jury trial
at common law, or by waiting 99 or 100 years. Since
the common law has been smothered in the U.S.A.,
all judges are essentially powerless to overcome the liens.
Many people are involved in
diligent research concerning the use of all capital letters for
proper names, e.g., JOHN PAUL JONES as a substitute
for John Paul Jones in all court documents,
driver's licenses, bank accounts,
birth certificates, etc..Is the use of all capital letters to designate
a name some special English grammar rule or style?Is it a contemporary American style of English?Is the use of this form of capitalization recognized by
educational authorities?Is this
an official judicial or U.S. government rule and/or style
of grammar?Why do attorneys, court clerks, prosecutors judges,
insurance companies, banks, credit card companies,
utility companies, etc. always use all capital letters
when writing a proper name?

seminar given in 1990 by Howard Freeman. It was
prepared to make available the knowledge and experience of
Mr. Freeman in his search for an accessible and understandable
explanation of the confusing state of the government and
the courts. It should be helpful to those who may have
difficulty learning from such lectures, or those who want to develop a

to three or four hours of recorded material.

an "attorney" is not a "lawyer,"

SPOONER tells us that for more than six
hundred years - that is, since Magna Carta, in 1215 - there has been no
clearer principle of English or American constitutional law, than that,
in criminal cases, it is not only the right and duty of juries to judge
what are the facts, what is the law, and what was the moral intent of
the accused; but that it is also their
right, and their primary and paramount duty, to judge of the justice of
the law, and to hold all laws invalid, that are, in their opinion,
unjust or oppressive, and all persons guiltless in violating, or
resisting the execution of, such laws. This is
the full essay on Trial by Jury at common law that
was written by Lysander Spooner in the year of 1852.
The United States government became
the conqueror and all states in the Union were thus reformed as
Franchisees of the Federal Corporation. The key to when the states
became Federal Franchisees is related to the date when such states
enacted the Field Code in law.
Over the years, members or our State
Legislatures have introduced "Resolutions" against the
U.S. Congress and the President of the United States for trespassing
upon the "reserved powers" of the States as protected by
Article X of the
Bill of Rights to the U.S. Constitution.
The only problem with these "Resolutions" is that
Article X of the
Bill of Rights only applies to the original thirteen States that
brought the "United States" into existence under the
Articles of Confederation, not to
the States that were brought into the Union under "Statehood
Acts" of the Congress of the United States.
These PDF File "Articles" will
surprise you about the "Powers" exercised by States that were brought
into the Union under "Statehood Acts" of the
Congress of the United States. These "Articles" also shows how the People may bring the "Representatives"
of the U.S. Congress and the "Officers" of the Executive and
Judicial Branches of the United States government back under the
authority of the United States Constitution.

"Legal" is the 'form of

totally unlawful. This is a excellent study of the
present day courts of the United States.

Robber baron is defined in
Webster’s as an American capitalist of the latter part of
the 19th century who became wealthy through exploitation
(as of natural resources, governmental influence, or low wage
scales).Today we have
a new class of these robber barons which are called "corporations."
A corporation is a
legal fiction; it doesn’t exist.Yes, it exists materially, but it is enshrouded in a
blanket of deceit called “corporate veil.”The “United States” is a corporation for
remuneration (for profit), and so are all
the States, federal and otherwise, and all of their counties,
parishes, cities, towns, and other subdivisions.Under the Clearfield Doctrine, derived from
the 1943 Supreme Court Decision in Clearfield Trust, et al. vs.
United States, (328 U.S. 363, 318),
the court ruled, in essence, that when a government reduces
itself to a corporate status, it becomes merely another
corporation, having no more nor less standing than all other
town in which we live, shop, and support, therefore, belongs to we the
people materially, but we are “governed” by the
new breed or robber baron as defined above.
We are living in a period of
time where nearly everyone in the world has been assigned
a number. Every Nation that has a national debt is
required by their multinational creditors to track
taxpayers' income. As you will soon find out,
treaties with multinational authorities require the United States
and other governments to issue Social Security numbers.

That decision may require changes in how you do things.
You may have to undo what has been done and make your Sovereign

Many people have had their
private property classified as "Wetlands" by the
U.S. Department of Environmental Protection Agency.
Under such a classification, you cannot develop your property
without going through years of permit applications

challenging the government's authority to regulate
private property within the State of Alaska
An individual was given a traffic
citation for driving a car without a driver license. He wrote a letter to the Court challenging jurisdiction and followed up the letter with his
appearance in the Courtroom. He did not cross the "Bar"
(railing seperating the audience from the judge's bench) nor did he sit at the Defendant's table, but standing
within the audience,
he informed the Judge that the Court had no jurisdiction over him and he
was waiting for a written letter stating Court's
asserted jurisdictional authority and then he walked out of the Courtroom.
Several years have passed since his visit to the Court and he is still driving without a driver license.
His identity has been removed from the letter for privacy
Anytime the use of U.S. Armed Forces
in support of civil authorities is considered, government and military
leaders, pundits, and citizens reflexively turn to the
Posse Comitatus Act for guidance. Since 9/11, the U.S. Armed Forces
face an increased likelihood that they will be called on to participate
in actions typically viewed as civil matters. Many have also
called for an increased role for the U.S. Armed Forces in responding to
natural disasters. Though many constitutional provisions, laws,
and legal rulings govern this question, in the minds of many, the
Posse Comitatus Act has prominence. Most individuals think they
know what the Posse Comitatus Act allows and disallows; most of them are

The briefs and other
legal materials which you find here are those which cover subjects
which Attorney Larry Becraft believe are of interest to
the concerned American. In reference to the "federal jurisdiction"
materials, Mr. Becraft first read tons of cases dealing
with the issue and then compiled summaries of them;
from that, Mr. Becraft composed the brief
utilizing only a small number of the researched cases.
The money issue is one of his favorites, and he drafted
the brief which appears here back in the early 80's.
The brief regarding Fifth Amendment protection for
personal financial records has its origins back in the early 80's
and over time, whenever he ran across a case which should
be included, he simply inserted the cite.
The remaining briefs cover several different topics.
Under the doctrine of Parens Patriae,
"Government As Parent," as a result of
the manipulated bankruptcy of the United States of America
in 1930, all the assets of the American people,
their person, and of our country itself are held by the Depository Trust Corporation
at 55 Water Street, NY, NY, secured by UCC Commercial Liens,
which are then monetized as "debt money" by the
Federal Reserve. It may interest you to know that under
the umbrella of the Depository Trust Corporation lies

Part 1. COURT PROCEDURE/ DUE
PROCESS The methodology used by the
federal courts and the Department of Justice to prevent any legal
challenge to the income tax from being brought before the court in

basic constitutional right, has consistently been held to void any claim
of jurisdiction in cases where the plaintiff is other than the Internal

SPRINGER, POLLOCK, 16th AMENDMENT
The three items consistently claimed to adjudicate/authorize a tax on
wages and salaries are reviewed and it is concluded they have been
misrepresented for decades in what appears to be blatant fraud. The
income tax imposed on an individual's wages or salary is a bald faced
sham without any claim to acceptable legal adjudication.
MOTION TO DISMISS §7203 INDICTMENT
A generic motion to dismiss for failure to state a cause of action in a
willful failure to file case is based on the legal issues in Part 1.
Reference books are identified for edification.
HABEAS CORPUS/ CORUM NOBIS The
motion in Part 4
is reworked and expanded into an academic post conviction relief for a
willful failure to file conviction. Reference material and procedural
guidelines are offered.
Part 6. CORAM
NOBIS Is there any way to
challenge a conviction on a willful failure to file charge after
completion of sentence to remove probation requirements/restrictions,
eliminate payment of court imposed fines, restore voting rights and
gun ownership, remove a public stigma, improve employment and
credit potential, etc.? Using the legal issues of Part 1
and the analysis of Parts 4
the answer appears to be ‘Yes’ and without any
filing fee involved.
