Hiding The Cheese — Tools for Researchers and Rat Watchers

Two great new sources have recently landed on my desk — sources that I have known about and used, but haven’t had links to in the form of digital documents or digital archives.

The first jewel is a dictionary published in the critical year of 1776:


This is of critical importance because it ends the endless argument about what words did and didn’t mean at the time The Declaration of Independence and other key foundational documents were written.
Download this dictionary and print it out in hard copy. You will never be sorry you did.

The second jewel is an archive of Presidential documents culled from Presidential Libraries and the Library of Congress and Museum and University Primary Source Document Collections:


This is not a complete or totally exhaustive collection of Presidential documents by any means, but it is a good collection of many important and hard to find documents. Again, download as much as you can and everyone who has a few hours, please peruse and share.

People who are new to Rat Watching are often astounded to find that information disappears — or moves, or is renumbered, placed in a separate filing system, hidden under a desk….. but to Old Hands, this is so commonplace and taken for granted that we don’t always mention it.

This is called “Hiding the Cheese”.

Just to give you an example, in 1925 the Bar Association “Re-codified” The United States Statutes-at-Large, which resulted in the “Revised United States Statutes-at-Large”. Everything in this new “codification” was renumbered and rearranged so that people who were familiar with the original “Unrevised” version couldn’t find anything and had to search very diligently to locate citations they were familiar with. To top it off, the Revised United States Statutes-at-Large were never actually approved, so they remain in use, but in an unofficial capacity.

If you quote anything from the Revised Statutes-at-Large in a court case, the citation is routinely but silently disallowed.

Another example: beginning in the 1930’s and especially after the Second World War, a parallel index of “Split Jurisdiction Cases” was developed.

This issue of split jurisdiction arises when we have subject matter that belongs partially to the sea jurisdiction and partially to the land jurisdiction, and commonly arose when maritime contracts were exercised on the land or port facilities and similar locations were involved. Some of the most interesting court cases in American Jurisprudence and those most friendly toward the rights of the people arise in these cases.

But when you quote them, nobody can find them. And if they do find them, they will tell you that you are balmy in the head, because, according to them, they looked and they can’t find the information you quoted anywhere in the case.

This is because of the so-called “parallel index” used to archive these cases. This is how they do it.

Say that the decision of the Sea Court was in the case, “Darryl Hawkins v. Delaware Boot and Shoe Company”, as an example. The corresponding Land Court decision will be found under, “Delaware Boot and Shoe Company v. Darryl Hawkins”. These case decisions are often diametrically opposed, with the commentaries being very different depending on whether the Jurists are acting as Judges (Sea Law) or as Justices (Land Law).

As another example, people will often try to tell you that average Americans, such as yourself, have been declared “Enemies” under the Trading With the Enemy Act, but this is not true. Hidden in Section 25 of the Second Appendix, average Americans are exempted. That’s the published remedy for crimes including incarceration of civilians in internment camps without due process — but they don’t want you to find the remedy and use it, so, they moved it from the body of the legislation into an Annotated Version and then into the Second Appendix.

Some of these documents have to be mined as if you were mining for gold and the process is just as arduous, because they are “hiding the cheese”.

These Babylonian Grifters that we have been dealing with have been hiding, “editing”, rearranging, obfuscating, and destroying books for a very, very long time. I think it’s safe to say that the “pagan” Library of Alexandria was burned not because it was pagan, but because it shed too much light on the practices and religions of Babylon and the Levant.

We see the same practices throughout history — King James rewriting the Bible so that the words selected conform with the Law of the Sea, the British burning the White House during the War of 1812, hoping to destroy the records of The United States (Trading Company) and The United States of America (Trading Company). The Nazis burning books about the Bible and Biblical Archeology, the Hindu Vedas, and so much more.

Keeping us dumbed down is a big part of their entire program, because then they can lie to us and we will have nothing concrete to form other (correct) ideas and opinions.

Many people still don’t know that the King James Bible, despite its majestic language, is often quite misleading, simply because every word in it has been brought into conformity with the Law of the Sea. The Geneva Bible is, conversely, written in conformity with the Law of the Land.

Go figure.

When I was in college I noticed something very odd. The people who joined cults of various kinds, religious, philosophical, scientific cults, were always the kids that hadn’t read the source books. They were easy to lead astray because they were relying on secondhand interpretations being fed to them by others. Nine-tenths of the time, the morons responsible for doing the misleading were just conning for money or sexual favors or political endorsements— and had only a cursory knowledge of the source books themselves.

When you are well-educated, you are well-armed. So arm yourselves, and store up the literary “ammo” as it comes your way. There is nothing more satisfying than to put your thumb and forefinger on a primary source document.

Many thanks to Max and Yefrim for picking up on these two precious jewels and sharing with me and with all of you.

As Red Green used to say, “Keep your stick on the ice” —and your eyes on the cheese.
