This handbook will explain EXACTLY what went wrong and point at remedies to undo the crimes, injuries and frauds that constitute it.
Many Americans instinctively sense that there is something SERIOUSLY wrong with the federal & state governments and the laws that we have in America, but can’t quite explain or put their finger on it.
Although laws higher than the man-made law of the sovereign people are not formally recognized in the legal theories of countries such as the United States, the Thomist idea of man-made law being subordinate to divine law is still espoused by many people. For example: Martin Luther King, Jr., in his Letter from a Birmingham Jail, cited Thomas Aquinas in his ways to know that a law is unjust: “A just law is a man-made code that squares with the moral law, or the law of God. An unjust law is a code that is out of harmony with the moral law. To put it in the terms of St. Thomas Aquinas: An unjust law is a human law that is not rooted in eternal law and natural law.” — King 1963
The “United States”, the country, is a “society” and a “sovereignty”, but not a “nation” under the law of nations, by the Supreme Court’s own admission. Because the Supreme Court has ruled on this matter, it is now incumbent upon each of us to always remember it and to apply it in our dealings with the Federal Government. If not, we lose our individual Sovereignty by default and the Federal Government assumes jurisdiction over us. So, while a sovereign American will want to be the “Citizen of the United States” and on occasion a “citizen of the United States’, he would never want to be a “citizen of the United States.” A human being who is a “citizen” of the statutory “U.S. citizen” under 8 U.S.C. §1401, is treated in law as occupying a place not protected by the Bill of Rights, which is the first ten amendments of the United States Constitution.
Legislated statutes enforced upon the people in the name of law are unlawful. They have no authority and are without mercy. Justice without mercy. Justice without mercy is Godless and therefore repugnant to our United States Constitution. Lawmakers were given authority by the people to legislate codes, rules, regulations, and statutes which are policies, procedures, and “law” to control the behavior of bureaucrats, elected and appointed officials, municipalities and agencies, but were never given authority to control the behavior of the people, as read in a U.S. Supreme court decision “All codes, rules, and regulations are for government authorities only, not human/creators in accordance with God’s laws. All codes, rules, and regulations are unconstitutional and lacking due process…” [Rodriques v. Ray Donovan (U.S. Deparment of Labor) 769 F.2d 1344, 1348 (1985)] and again “All laws, rules and practices which are repugnant to the Constitution are null and void” [Marbury v. Madison, 5th U.S. (2 Cranch) 137, 174, 176, (1803)]
US Supreme Court in U.S. v. United Mine Workers of America, 330 U.S. 258, 67 SCt 677 (1947): “In common usage, the term `person’ does not include the sovereign and statutes employing it will ordinarily not be construed to do so.”
“Sovereignty itself is, of course, not subject to law, for it is the author and source of law; but in our system, while sovereign powers are delegated to the agencies of government, sovereignty itself remains with the people, by whom and for whom all government exists and acts. It is indeed, quite true, that there must always be lodged somewhere, and in some person or body, the authority of final decision; and in many cases of mere administration the responsibility is purely political, no appeal except to the ultimate tribunal of the public judgment, exercised either in the pressure of opinion or by means of the suffrage. But the fundamental rights to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness, considered as individual possessions, are secured by those maxims of constitutional law, which are the monuments showing the victorious progress of the race in securing to men the blessings of civilization under the reign of just and equal laws. For the very idea that one man may be compelled to hold his life, or the means of living, or any material right essential to the enjoyment of life, at the mere will of another, seems to be intolerable in any country where freedom prevails, as being the essence of slavery itself.” Yick Wo v. Hopkins
