Recently I found myself writing an apologetic letter to a young woman who was confused about why she, a single Mother (and doing just fine, thank you!) should have to find a “Pater Familis” to act as Paternal Guardian for her children? I explained about the Roman Civil Law adopted by the Municipal United States Government. This is literally the law of Rome, more than two thousand years old, all scribed in Latin. Under Roman Civil Law, a woman can own property (such as her own children) only so long as there is a male head of household willing to claim those children as his responsibility. Otherwise, the Municipal Government views her children as very valuable unclaimed property — presumed to be unwanted bastards — slaves, in other words. And they will claim the children of unprotected women as WARDS OF THE STATE. As a result, divorced women, actual unwed mothers, and widows with children all need to find trustworthy men to stand in the place of Pater Familis with respect to their children. This Paternal Guardian can be and if possible should be the Grandfather, Uncle, Brother, or other relative who is a man of good character and of age and otherwise able to support a family. In a pinch, a Godfather can serve, or even a family friend, but someone has to fill those empty shoes or the children are at risk under Municipal Law. It is this same antique form of law that allows slavery and peonage to exist in the modern world. For these and other reasons, Roman Civil Law should not exist in the modern world, but it does and it is still one of the most common forms of law on a planetary basis. Go figure — and deal with this information. You are being mistaken and impersonated as a Municipal citizen of the United States, subject to Roman Civil Law. Yes, we can accuse the perpetrators of fraud and hope to prove it, but under Roman Civil Law, you are guilty until proven innocent —- and they get to set the standard of proof. So…. it’s best to know what you are up against and have your ducks in order to establish your standing and ownership interest in your property assets, and it is also best if you realize that under this ancient form of law, your children are property assets belonging to their parents until they reach the age of majority. Under Roman Civil Law, people can still be owned as property. Minor children are property by definition — either of their parents/family — or the STATE. Slavery is wrong, we all know it’s wrong, and it has been outlawed worldwide since 1926, but nonetheless, under Roman Civil Law it persists locally and hasn’t been eradicated. Until it is, and until other forms of law replace it, the Roman Civil Law poses a threat to anyone who can be ensnared. We are certainly not condoning any of this and don’t advocate it or naturally stand under Roman Civil Law at all —- nonetheless, it is the law of one of our Federal Subcontractors, and we have to be aware of it and ready to defend against it — first by denying their assumption that we are citizens of their version of “United States” and second, by being prepared to rebut their ownership claims under their own law. Having someone on the record to stand as Pater Familis is wise, as it discourages the Vermin from attacking you and your children in the first place. They can’t assume that your children are “fatherless” and without support, the most common excuse they use to claim them and send their “agents” —- “Child Protective Services” — to seize upon your kids. This advice applies to people who have “married” under a civil marriage license as much as it does to actual unwed mothers and divorcees and widows —- get a separate claim, a Baby Record (sometimes called a Baby Deed) on the Public Record, with both a Father or Paternal Guardian and Mother on the record. Such “civil marriages” do not establish official paternity and don’t have the lawful and legal standing of wedlock. That is, you can be married and your husband is still not legally presumed to be the father of your children until he steps up and says so. You also need to clearly establish the birthright political status of your child as an American State National for their sake. Don’t let anyone assume anything about your political status — declare it, and don’t let your children go undeclared, either. Admiralty Law is another ancient form of law that is legendarily prone to corruption, which is what led to the Admiralty Courts in Great Britain being dismembered and restricted in the mid-1700’s. Only four subjects were left to the Admiralty Courts after this great restructuring — seaman’s wages, hypothecation of debt, maritime salvage claims, and bottomry bonds. Out of this meager remaining authority, the Admiralty Courts have managed to spread worldwide corruption on an unprecedented scale, by attaching “Special Admiralty Rules” to the Roman Civil Law already discussed and misapplying Admiralty Law on shore. The Perpetrators have “supposed” that, as we haven’t declared our own political status in public, they can use their own “discretion” to determine our identity and political status for us, and proceed however they please, using whatever form of law suits their purpose — which is to collect war reparations for the British King. From their perspective, we are “ships” — thanks to a presumed British Territorial “Citizenship” that accrues to British Territorial Persons at birth — and as such, we are subject to maritime (commercial) salvage as bankrupt franchises of prior government corporations. So they seize upon our good names and estates and make false claims and false presumptions about us and our government, and there is nothing to prevent this headlong self-interested spate of lying, because we have been left completely in the dark and unable to object as a result. The entire British Territorial Internal Revenue Service scam rests upon their undisclosed use of the word “Taxpayer” as a legal term defined as a Warrant Officer in the British Merchant Marine Service —- thus bringing the subject matter of the Admiralty Courts — seaman’s wages — to bear. They also speculate that the bankrupt franchise “Persons” that they operate “in our names” are subject to salvage and hypothecation of debt against the “wreck” — that is, the bankrupted British Territorial Person — and the Owners of that wreck, who are presumed to be the Americans these British Territorial franchise corporations are named after. Imagine that someone named an actual ship after you, the jolly HMS John Doe American? And then proceeded to wreck and bankrupt and salvage this ship? Imagine that they have charged you for all this “service” they’ve done salvaging the wreck that they created? Plus, they have seized upon the cargo this “ship” was carrying? Now you have an idea of what these criminals have been pulling on the clueless American General Public in their Admiralty Courts. Technically, they have been addressing their own bankrupt corporate franchises, not addressing the similarly-named Americans at all. And obviously, bankrupt British Territorial corporate franchises have no guarantees under The Constitution of the United States of America, so they have evaded their constitutional obligations to the Americans, too. This is why the Admiralty Courts were destroyed in the 1750’s, but unfortunately, the Brits saw an advantage in preserving this nasty little court concession for precisely these and similar fraud schemes —- and so these frauds of impersonation and unlawful conversion have continued and flourished even though they have been officially outlawed since 1702, and the British Government has deliberately continued to profit from these fraud and personage schemes with malice aforethought, as we see in the Naval Agency and Distributions Act of 1864. Both of these ancient forms of “Law” — the Roman Civil Law and the Admiralty Law — need to be torn asunder and reformed on a worldwide basis, as both are being manipulated to promote criminal mischief and injustice on a worldwide scale. We should not be limited in this reform or coerced to substitute other repugnant forms of law such as Administrative Law intended to manage the internal affairs of corporations, or Sharia Law which is a codification enforcing Muslim religious mandates, or Noahide Law which is a simpler and even more Draconian form of Admiralty Law or Rules of Law which are intended to govern the courts. We need new law forms that are simple, easy to understand, and easy to obey for the common good. There is no reason to entertain the insanity of over 80 million codes, regulations, and statutes, which nobody can rightly interpret, know, obey, enforce, or pay for. We, as a planetary community, must address the havoc and injustice that the application and misapplication of these ancient forms of law have caused. We must additionally address the results of these misuses and abuses of law and make new choices and develop new forms of law to promote justice and honest administration of local government and business functions. I have stared this Beast in the face and thought long and hard about it, and can find no better standards than the most ancient of all laws on Earth — to honor our Creator, to honor freewill, to cause no harm, and to treat others as we would like to be treated ourselves. Avoiding harm to others would become profitable. Respecting the privacy and property rights of others would be normal. And you wouldn’t need entire huge libraries to define and prove what is simply right or simply wrong. All you would need is a jury of twelve people without profit motives and their heads screwed on.
