It seems there is a picture in everyone's mind when you say the word, "Grandma".
My own Grandmother was tall and lean, with bright green eyes, and a wicked smile. She had her own sense of humor. When we'd fall down and scrape our knees (as long as it wasn't broken and only a temporary end of the world) she'd shake her head and say, "Come here, I'll pick you up."
Pretty soon, she'd have us laughing in spite of ourselves. Wincing and sobbing and laughing all at the same time. Mad at her. Loving her.
She loved rocks and minerals and was an inveterate observer of the landscape in all its detail. Give her a piece of beach and she happily walked along the strand for hours, peering bird-like at every bit of detritus, every shell. She had a fine eye for every nuance, and whether she was scanning the sand or the horizon, I always had the sense that she was seeing all of it.
And I do mean---- all of it.
Sometimes we'd hold hands and wade out into the surf for no reason, other than to feel the sea tugging and swirling around our bare feet. Her eyes would go unfocused then, thinking of other times and places, of young men who went away to sea and never came back again, and very quietly, almost to herself, she'd sing songs in a surprisingly melodious voice.
Over the Sea to Skye. The Marine Hymn. Eternal Father.
It seems strange looking back that the sea had so much to do with our lives, considering that we lived most of the time in the middle of the continent, where the only seas were seas of grass.
My Father asked me to sing "Eternal Father" at his funeral, too, which I know must have sent a shock wave in all directions. Whoever heard of a daughter singing at her Father's funeral service? And such a song, at a graveside in the middle of Wisconsin?
Mine is not to reason why. That's what he asked of me. So, that's what I did.
Maybe it's because his Grand-Uncles were Admirals in the German Navy? Men who trained on the last of the Tall Ships, and who knew every sail and splice and knot, every kind of rope?
Their lives were supremely odd, too.
After the First World War, there wasn't much for a German Admiral to do. So they came to America and used their Midshipman skills learned on the Tall Ships, as trapeze artists traveling around with Barnum and Bailey's Circus.
When we went to visit them at their winter camp in Delavan, Wisconsin, they were so tall I barely came up to their knee caps, and very handsome and fit, despite being at least seventy years old by then. They had a merry gleam in their eyes despite all of it, and a small Fox Terrier named Bailey that knew every trick in any dog book ever written.
So my Grandmother, who loved the sea, and my Great-Granduncles, who were all about the same age, came to sit around the campfire in Wisconsin with snow all around, and more snow filtering down among the caravans parked there for the winter, and they wrapped her in a fur blanket and talked quietly about a world that was no more.
And I listened, quiet as a mouse in a room full of cats, hoping to catch a glimpse of it.
It was a gilded, glorious, hopeless age, the vanished Belle Epoque. The men went to sea and learned to fly stunt planes for fun. Grandma went to France and learned to play concert piano.
How could they ever dream that they'd wind up in Wisconsin? She, the matron of a dairy and herb farm, they, wearing funny costumes and flying on trapezes around the Big Top, a thousand miles from the sea?
Their lives seemed so tragic, yet, they all smiled about it just the same.
Come here, I'll pick you up.
They would never give up, so they could never taste defeat. Any of them. Not for any reason. Ever. That's just the way they were. Bon chance, mon ami.
And come the springtime when the apple trees were in bloom again, the two old knights rode up to her farmhouse on horseback just as the late afternoon sun touched the windows upstairs; I saw them and ran to the dooryard, staring in disbelief.
They were riding two of the biggest, shiniest, blackest horses I could even imagine, at least seventeen hands high at the shoulder. I suppose they borrowed them from the circus.
It was as if the past had come alive again, or as if it had never died. They swung easily down out of their saddles, attired in elegant gray tunics and trousers, wide, black leather belts and black leather riding boots. They were two figures out of a dream, stepped out of the old black and white tin-type photographs, and onto my Grandmother's doorstep.
Just in time for dinner, they said, and grinned like two school-boys up to a prank.
Come here, I'll pick you up.

Whatever law you stand under, you subject yourselves unto.
Repeat: whatever law you stand under, you subject yourselves unto.
Repeat: whatever law you stand under, you subject yourselves unto.
How many times do I have to repeat this simple fact?
If you occupy your proper birthright political status, you can act in one of two possible capacities: (1) State National; (2) State Citizen.
A State Citizen takes up the responsibilities of self-governance at the State and Local Level. He or she agrees to serve as a Juror and may or may not be elected to various offices serving the actual State or County Government.
Our States and Counties are all unincorporated.
Our States and Counties do not recognize Dual Citizenship and do not allow Dual Citizens to participate in State Assemblies; our Forefathers considered Dual Citizenship a source of conflict of interest according to the Biblical injunction: no man can serve two masters.
I know many patriots who spend huge amounts of time arguing about Federal Codes. This only makes sense if you are a British Territorial Federal Employee, that is, a United States Citizen. If you are a British Territorial United States Citizen, you stand under Federal Code.
Otherwise, the only possible reason to study or know Federal Code is to hold British Territorial United States Citizens accountable to their own "law".
But you don't do that by arguing with them about their duties in court. If you are standing in their Court, arguing their Law, what is the Judge supposed to think? Answer: they are going to think you are standing under that law, too, which means you are subjecting yourself as a Federal Citizen.
Why on Earth would any American do that?
If you are an American, and you are owed your Constitutional guarantees, say so. Correct your political status. Place your declarations and re-conveyances in the public record.
And the only purpose you ever have in learning or reciting any Federal Code is to spell back to THEM what their obligations are. So what do you have to do when you tell them THEIR law so as to hold them to it? You owe them full disclosure of the facts.
And what are the facts?
(1) You are not a Federal Employee or Dependent; (2) You do not stand under the Federal Code; (3) You are telling them their own obligations under their own law--not offering to stand under Federal Code; (4) You are not a member of a political party or any religious cult and are addressing them as one of the people of ____________. (Your State, not any "State of State".)
The Municipal Government is mis-characterizing you as the members of a :"federal" religious cult under "voluntary" contract to donate everything you are and own to them, including income taxes every April 15th. Such a "citizen of the United States" is a slave by definition.
The Territorial Government is mis-characterizing you as a British Territorial United States Citizen --- Federal Employee or Dependent, a member of a political party, "voter", "resident", ---a foreigner in your own country.
None of these Courts deal in any kind of law that "generally" applies to you.
These foreign courts are designed to deal in international and global contract law and proceed on the basis of legal presumptions to the effect that: (1) you are a corporation; or (2) you are a franchise of a corporation, or (3) you are an officer, either elected or appointed, of a corporation; and (4) you are a Party to a contract involving subject matter within the jurisdiction of their court.
You must clearly state the capacity in which you are acting, and in which you are NOT acting, and when you walk into one of their courts, it's best to have evidence on the public record supporting your claim to be an American having the standing to act as an American already established.
Otherwise, it looks like you are just evading and dodging consequences of foreign citizenship obligations.
This is not rocket science. It's just common sense once you step back and look at it. They are they and we are we, and never the twain shall meet. You cannot stand on the dry land and at the same time, be adrift on the sea.
So. Think about it. Think about what you are doing. Who you are. And how you are presenting yourself.
When THEY have controversies THEY take refuge in THEIR courts. When we have controversies, we give them Notice in the Court and in the Administrative and in the Legislative and Executive Forums.
As Americans we do not "generally" recognize their legislatures at the State of State level, nor do we recognize their Congresses. Why? Because we are on the land and they are on the sea. So we don't address their congresses and legislatures the same way that their own "persons" do.
We can issue Notice of Infringement, Violation of Contract, Breach of Trust or any number of other offenses. We can issue Declarations of Protest and we can issue Declarations of Remonstrance, both, but Writs do not "generally" appear in their courts or legislatures at all.
Most of those who contact me are in trouble of some kind. While I sympathize, the help that I can offer is limited to sharing information that numerous people can take advantage of. I have too much work to do to provide counsel to individuals, and the members of The Living Law Firm are equally overwhelmed.
Likewise, unless you have something that you really feel is of importance on a broader scale, please don't write and send me details of individual cases. There is no way that we can help at the individual level.
What we aim to do is force systemic change affecting everyone for the better: end the foreclosure frauds --- all of them; recoup the assets and credit owed to Americans --- all of it, for everyone.
Or as my friend said, "We are after the arsonists. We can't stop to fight brush fires."
Not only that, we are after the arsonists on an international level, so, that is yet another step beyond the normal fight.
The United States of America [Unincorporated] is your Federation of sovereign and unincorporated States, the lawful government of this country, and the only entity that can step up and as a Lawful Person, reclaim the land, the gold, the silver, and all else that is owed to the American States and People.
Please help in any and all ways that you can. With prayers, with love, with forbearance for all the things we can't do with a wave of our hands, with faith and with generosity, with determination, and with time, with volunteer work, with efforts to educate others and spread the word, with might and with main, with pennies and with dollars, with ideas and with hours ---- this is our country and our government of the people, for the people, and by the people.
There is no other --- no other State Citizens properly declared and "returned" and able to act as "People", having the standing to claim and demand the return of all American assets, able to enforce the Constitutions, and able to stand before the nations of the world with sovereignty equal to any.
Please, look around you, think of what you can contribute, what you can do, to help yourself and others.
There are times when I get thousands of emails in a single day, hundreds of cards and letters, packages, court filings, copies of records, books, publications from decades and centuries past ---- it's often a mad house trying to sort through it all, and though I try to read everything and respond as I can, the response time is slow due to the sheer volume of mail and the work load.
My advice to everyone is --- don't wait. Don't think that you can ride the fence. Almost every day I get communications from people who are desperately trying to resolve problems that arose because they didn't take action to reclaim their correct political status sooner. As a result they are being prosecuted as Federal Citizens, and have to fight from inside the box ---- a much tougher proposition than would be possible if they had acted to reclaim their correct political status earlier.
Are you an American? Or a Federal Employee or Dependent?
It's really a pretty easy question to answer, once you understand that Federal Retirees, both Military and Civil Service, are NOT "Federal Dependents" just because they get health care or pensions. Neither are people receiving Social Security. If you are getting payments or services that you worked for, contributed to, and earned --- you are NOT a "Federal Dependent" or "welfare recipient" ---- you are an American Retiree receiving Earned Program Dividends, not welfare "benefits" ---- and you are free to live where you like and adopt the law and the political status you are owed.

I recently took the time to explain the Big Picture Problem of the Municipal United States Government—-what it is and who controls it and how far off track it has gone.
So what besides forming a stable clean government for Washington, DC, is the Municipal Government supposed to do?
The Municipal Government is also called the Civil Government and it is in charge of the Federal Civil Service Employees and their functions.
Originally, the non-military functions of the Federal Government were largely performed by the American States of America Confederation and the Municipal Civil Government was limited to providing postal service and a well-run Capitol city and little else.
Following the Civil War the role of this foreign subcontractor was vastly expanded and it began doing work originally entrusted to the Confederation — it took over the patent, trademark and copyright offices, the Government Land Office, the banks, the US Mint, the Customs Houses and Port Authorities, the Coast Guard, the Railroads and Highway System— all of which were supposed to be controlled and run by the Confederation of States-of-States dba States of America.
By simply not disclosing the facts to the American Public, the “Reconstruction” of the States of America was stalled and eventually set aside, and the foreign interloper fronted by the Holy See settled in.
The next phase of development saw the Municipal “Civil” Government proliferating itself like a cancer. Instead of doing all the extra work itself, the Municipal United States Government started hiring subcontractors and creating Agencies.
This is how we wound up with a foreign subcontractor hiring more subcontractors “for” us—- and actually dodging the duties, so as not to be directly accountable.
They hired the Federal Reserve.
They hired the United States Postal Service.
They basically farmed out all the work, like house maids hiring house maids for themselves and all on our credit.
By the end of FDR’s Administration there were around 350 new “Federal Agencies” all empowered to make their own laws and regulations and enforce them as “Administrative Code”.
Thus, we now had unelected and unaccountable bureaucrats writing “laws” and imposing them on us.
Over time, many of these Agency contractors became corrupt or were directly misdirected by the Municipal Congress to serve political agendas instead of providing any true service to us.
We were devolving into a Robber Baron mentality in which the Cabinet Level Department Secretaries could and did direct the “outside” agencies to do their dirty work.
Thus we have the Department of Justice colluding with the CIA, MI-6, DHS, FBI and so on, to illegally wire-tap and spy on the Trump Campaign, using all the equipment and manpower we pay for, to serve their own political and payola objectives.
And they think this is okay.
Some of the worst abuses have occurred at the US Patent and Trademark Office, where blatantly criminal business models and technologies were protected under patents.
But, by far the worst and most problematic development has been the chartering of over 185,000 “Municipal Government Corporations” and letting these THINGS masquerade as local level governments.
This is how we get “sanctuary cities” and other aberrations in conflict with actual Public Law and government in this country and NONE of these entities are supposed to be here.
The Holy See owes it to us and everyone else to come clean, explain the situation, fully disclose everything, and liquidate all the Municipal Government charters.
Obviously, the Pope does not want to do this and would prefer to start a Civil War instead. Thus far he has not even offered to sit down and negotiate a settlement of these issues with us, the States and People being usurped upon and harmed by this unconscionable situation.
At any time in the past 150-plus years, the Popes and the British Monarchs could have done their duty as our Trustees. They could have fully disclosed the situation at the end of the Civil War and assisted us in organizing new elections. They could have assisted the Reconstruction process instead of obscuring it.
Instead, they saw an opportunity to benefit themselves at our expense and acted in Gross Breach of Trust, Treaty, and Commercial Service Contract owed to us and to our States of the Union.
Instead of making amends for any of this, and instead of seeking a peaceful resolution via confession and negotiation, the Pope and the Queen continue to interfere with our lawful government and to promote war on our shores.
This is the thanks we get for preserving them and their institutions through two World Wars.
This is what their “diplomacy” really amounts to—- ugly threats, obstruction, and interference in our internal affairs, even down to the level of spying on and trying to undermine President Trump.
The Pope and the Queen have cashiered away and benefited themselves from vast amounts of American assets including land, gold, and silver which they purloined for their use, “Human Resources” that they conscripted under force and conditions of constructive fraud and deceit, and intellectual property and material rights they have preyed upon.
If they wish to have peace in the world and friendship with America, it’s time to up-end and reverse course.
The United States of America is still here, still alive. Our lawful Persons are assembled and properly declared and constituted to collect and receive back the assets owed to us and our States of the Union: our land, our gold, our silver, our labor, our Good Names, our credit, and our peace.
Even if it is “impossible” to return everything that they have purloined, the Pope and the Queen and all their assorted minions, owe a Good Faith effort to do what they can to make amends and to cooperatively and peacefully assist us —a hundred and fifty years late— as we restore our lawful government to full function at all levels.
And there is certainly no excuse for either Principal Party, the Queen or the Pope, to meddle in elections, obstruct election outcomes, or to promote, instigate, or support any form of violence on our shores.
Let all Americans know and all the other people around the world know, too, what we— and they— are up against.
The Holy See has 185,000-plus mistakes to correct and that’s just for starters.
