The Commerce Game EXPOSED
Published in the July 1999 issue of The American Voice
Volume II - Issue 7
What if one day a handful of powerful bankers, armed with their bought and paid for lawyers and politicians, decided to replace the system of commerce the way was presently conducted? Not so bad, you may say. Everyone simply adjusts to a different system and business moves on. I would normally agree. However, what if only a very small number were told about the change? What if the vast majority were first distracted from the change and then systematically "educated" into believing that no change had even occurred? That might not have been so bad either…if those in control truly had the vast majority’s best interests at heart…or even in view. Of course if they had deliberately and systematically kept the vast majority ignorant, and unable to learn otherwise, it would then seem "our best interests" were not being considered. The underlying reason for this is very simple: royalty, by blood or by power, needs slaves to exist.
A man can be enslaved by many different means. Thoughout time, the powers that be have developed a well balanced formula of high-profit, low-maintenance slavery. Although there are many different elements to this ‘formula,’ ignorance is the key. What better slave than one who believes he is actually free?
In 1933 the system of doing business in this country was changed. Before that, time debts were paid by gold: either coin or gold backed currency. To introduce gold into commerce, it must first be mined. Mining requires labor. That labor is what gave gold coin it’s intrinsic value. Labor is energy. The value of gold was fixed, it was not a fluctuating commodity as it is today.
Then a financial ‘emergency’ occurred – either caused by the simple greed and corruption of the banking/investment moguls or, by their design, for larger purposes. It is important to realize that this is the time period in which the welfare state was instituted, socialism was integrated into America, and a large shift in wealth occurred. Many, many individuals became very, very wealthy as a result of the "financial emergency."
On April 5, 1933, President Roosevelt issued an Executive Order "forbidding the hoarding of gold coin, gold bullion and gold certificates" and attached the penalty of a $10,000 fine or up to 10 years in prison. "Hoarding" was defined as more than $100 in gold. Then on June 5, 1933, the 73rd Congress, 1st session, passed H.J.R. 192, which stated within its title "...to suspend the gold standard and abrogate the gold clause."
At this time I feel it important to include the definition of "abrogate," as found within Black’s Law Dictionary, 4th edition, p. 21: "To annul, repeal, or destroy; to annul or repeal an order or rule issued by a subordinate authority; to repeal a former law by legislative act, or by usage."
Is the Constitution, the creator of Congress, a subordinate authority to Congress? Is the Creator subordinate to the creation? Of course not. So, by what authority did Congress "abrogate" the gold clause contained within the Constitution?
The answer is, they had no authority. They were criminals. Roosevelt was a criminal and every Congress and President that has abided by, and concealed the above mentioned treasonous act since then, is a criminal as well.
The foreign, un-authorized, system we currently live under is only a fact "by usage." We are no longer a nation of Laws. We are a system of commerce. Commerce is always conducted by agreement.
In 1933, when the authorized standard of money was abrogated, which carried the fixed value representative of the energy/labor expended by natural men, the natural man lost his ability to pay his debts. If it is impossible to pay a debt one cannot be authorized to create a debt. How, then, could commerce continue, given a situation where no man could create or pay a debt?
Energy/labor is real. Natural man is real. But the Monetary system we have recognized "as" real, is not. What "real" thing backs the U.S. dollar’s value? What intrinsic value does it have…or even represent? Some of you may think that it is the gross national product. You are wrong.
"It is the confidence people have that they will be able to exchange such money for other financial assets and for real goods and services whenever they choose to do so." Modern Money Mechanics*, Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago. "Intrinsically, a dollar bill is just a piece of paper, deposits merely book entries." Modern Money Mechanics*, Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago.
Nothing of real value backs the dollar, and it has no real intrinsic value.
You may think that the money is created by the government, at the Treasury. Again, you are wrong.
"The actual process of money creation takes place primarily in banks… bankers discovered that they could make loans merely by giving their promise to pay, or bank notes, to borrowers. In this way banks began to create money…Transaction deposits are the modern counterpart of bank notes. It was a small step from printing notes to making book entries crediting deposits of borrowers, which the borrowers in turn could "spend" by writing checks, thereby "printing" their own money." Modern Money Mechanics*, Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago.
The whole visible system is based on "promises to pay" and the "confidence" in those promises. In reality, it is all just bookkeeping. No intrinsic value…only movement. The credits and debits must continue to move. This movement represents the transfer of energy. That is commerce. Or, it could be the board-game Monopoly. As long as there is movement, the game continues. When one player gets it all, or no one can move, the game ends.
In 1933 one game ended and another began. Now there were new pieces in the game. The rules were changed. But only those who had been notified of the change knew there were new pieces, and knew they could move them themselves. The rest of us were led to believe that our pieces were still the same, but would be moved by someone more qualified, and for our benefit.
Has it been good for us? Just as we need a game piece to play the board-game of Monopoly, we also need a game piece to play the game of commerce: and in commerce our "game piece" is called a strawman. We are the players, remember? The players have no real money, so they cannot create any real debt. It is important we remember this.
There has been a lot of research into the meanings of various form and representations of a man’s name. All the research shows that when a man’s name is in all capital letters or with the last name first, first name last, it is not a correct representation of the man. This is old news. But the utilization of this information, attempted in various procedures, has proven not to have been particularly successful – even though the information is correct.
The all capitalized version of your name is not you, it is your strawman. It is your game piece. This fictional man was created in order for you to take part, become involved, in the game of commerce.
A natural man is real. Gold is the real representation of labor. Labor is energy and the transfer of energy is commerce.
The strawman is not real. The commerce system which is in place now depends upon the movement of fictional credits and debits for the transfer of energy. This movement has no substance.
The old system (prior to 1933) depended upon the reality of men exchanging energy in the form of their labor, which is their property.
The new system, the system we live with today, depends upon the non-reality of promises, confidence and the movement of book entries.
One is real - one is fiction. The two cannot mix. We are real. The monetary/commerce system is fiction. Since the two cannot mix, the real and the fiction, something had to be done. The strawman was created. Birth certificates, issued by the State, certified the strawman’s birth and became a "certificate of title."
In 1933 all the States pledged full faith and credit to the United States. The "birth certificate" is held in the office of vital statistics within the jurisdiction in which the "port of entry" you entered this country at is located and at the U.S. Department of Commerce. This birth certificate, "manufacturer’s certificate of origin" (MCO), is the creation of your game piece.
Now, an account must be created for the strawman, to enable the transfer of credits and debits. An account needs a number, let’s say 123-45-6789. Look familiar? But this account does not operate like a regular bank account…so don’t even try. By the way, how much "money" do you start a Monopoly game with?
Resources are used as collateral for the debt. Therefore, the value placed on a resource also applies to the collateral. People are openly referred to by government as "human resources." Now we can begin to understand why the government treats people as a farmer treats his livestock. The herd is used as collateral to back the debt created by the farmer, when he bought the grain to feed the heard in the first place. However, one must be the holder in due course of a resource, in order to use it as collateral. This is why a birth certificate is like a note, stock or title.
If you do not act on your own behalf, and take care of your own affairs, it is often presumed you are not competent to do so. When one is deemed incompetent, a fiduciary is then assigned: to administer to his affairs. Someone else acts for him. Have you ever been asked to play a game that was new to you (one which you did not know how to play) just because the game needed another player? Under those circumstances someone usually says, "I’ll play your move for you, you can just watch." Right?
During a war, civilian casualties are referred to as "collateral damage." Isn’t that an interesting term? Collateral? The people are collateral? How many of you think that’s just a coincidence? You see, we are already in the game, and our game piece (strawman) is on the board. Isn’t it time we learned how to play?
There is now a process that shows you how to operate your strawman, and the strawman account, for your own benefit. This process is relatively simple and it may not seem like a big deal to you now. But I am looking at three IRS "Certificate of Release of Federal Tax Lien" documents, totaling over $15,000.00, that were released in response to the above mentioned process. I have also been told of many other circumstances, concerning many different debt situations, that have had the same result.
In five years of study, this is the first process I have seen where there is actual evidence that it is really working. Although there are a few different names attached to this process, "redemption," "Accepted For Value," etc. they all address the same subject. . .that is, accessing and using the strawman to make your life a little more enjoyable, a lot less complicated, and more in line with what God probably had in mind when He created us in the first place.
The point of this article is to start you thinking, so that you’ll have questions and, hopefully, seek out some answers. The process we are referring to is not to be taken lightly. It is not a "get-rich-quick" scheme. What this process is – based on the research, implementation of the facts discovered and the results that followed – is the way commercial business is conducted: nationwide. But this knowledge, these procedures, have been kept from "we the people" – we the "collateral." Now it’s being exposed, and finally we can free ourselves, and our game piece (strawman), from the control and manipulation of government. We have learned the rules of the game.
