You Know Something is Wrong When…An American Affidavit of Probable Cause by Anna Maria Riezinger and James Clinton Belcher
The Colonial Period
The First Big Lie
Now step back in time to the earl 1600's...
The colonists pretended that the land was vacant and open to claim. They discounted the
Indians because they weren't Christian.
The Second Big Lie
Later, the Colonists tried to buy the land from the Indians who told them that they didn't own
the land – the land owned the people. The Colonists ignored this and forced the Indians to
accept “gifts” as payment and concocted contracts of sale based on this practice.
When you think about it ….The Indians had it right!
This and every other nation you can think of is founded on lies and false claims. Buying and
selling and taxing land is a con game in which we buy back the right to enjoy assets that were
already given to us (Genesis 1:26-28). Those in the middle – the “Trustees” - are cheating us
and enriching themselves whether its the Pope, the King of Spain, or the State of Ohio.
Because the Indians continued their efforts to being this fraud to everyone else's attention, they
were deemed “Enemies of the Crown” and subjected to physical and cultural genocide for 400
Men, women, and children...they died to bring you this basic truth. They were killed because
they knew and spoke this truth in your behalf as well as their own.
The Trust --- Again
Native Americans had their own vision of The Trust. In their view it was simple and obvious.
1. The Trust is SACRED and belongs equally to all people.
2. The Trust requires our GRATITUDE. We cannot take without giving.
3. The Trust requires CARE TAKING. This generation cannot destroy what is owed to the next.
It is every adult's duty to hand over The Trust in the same or better condition that he received it.
Anyone who wastes resources or pollutes the world is viewed like a two year-old with a
hammer – too ignorant to know better, dangerous, and needing guidance and discipline.
The Europeans conquered by force and by guile, but they lost the moral debate forever.
“Kill the buffalo and you kill the Indians.”

(but nobody can accuse you of genocide....)
“Let us put our minds together and see what kind of life we can make for our children.”
The French and Indian War (American)
aka The Thirty Years War (European)
We can't call it The thirty Years War in American because that would admit that “The French
and Indian War” was an extension of The Thirty Year War in Europe, which would admit that it
was all Britain and France's fault that such a war existed.
That in turn would show that Colonials were innocent Third Parties drawn into a British war-
for-profit scheme, from which we did not profit and for which we were handed the bill.
This is a recurrent theme” Britain starts a war with some other party, Americans fight for the
British, and then, America gets handed the bill for it.
~ The American Revolution ~
What We Got Out Of It:
We won absolute control of the land jurisdiction.
Every American has more civil authority on the land that the entire federal government.
The American Revolution
What King George Got Out Of It
1. Permanent control of American international commerce & shipping via control of the
jurisdiction of the sea.
2. Tribute in the form of minerals – gold, silver, copper.
3. No further obligation to the Native aboriginal people to stop Westward colonization.
4. No obligation to send support, men, or supplies to the Colonies anymore.
5. The Colonists now heavily in debt to King George and obligated to pay for funding both
sides of the conflict.
6. All British commercial interests remained intact.
So, as a result of the American Revolution, the Americans got control of the land jurisdiction....
...but the Brits retained control of the “High Seas and Navigable Inland Waterways”.
~ THE JURISDICTIONS WERE SPLIT ~
This created the need to set up two separate national trusts and created two separate nations
with two different kinds of citizens all living under one roof right from the start.
