An excellent web site that has a strong Christian and patriotic base is the web site "News With Views". I have subscribed to their posts for the past nine years as I recall. I saved one of the posts by Marilyn M. Barnwell, an established journalistic writer on the banking industry. The post is dated July 17, 2011 and it was titled "Gold Fringed Flags..." Ms. Barnwell's article touched on a topic that I have had interest in going back to my days in the Army. Her first statement was, "The U.S. Constitution is a "let's Pretend" document without the Rule of Law." She noted there is so much corruption in our business community, that it made her ill. She went on to cite an example, which I will share next. Her remarks begin here:
"One example: In 2007, GE, the world's largest industrial company, was one of the biggest beneficiaries of funds set aside to rescue banks. Is GE a bank? No, but what does that matter?
GE has a company called General Electric Capital, one of the world's largest and most diverse financial operations. GE Capital makes loans for commercial real estate, aircraft leasing, and issues credit cards for stores like Wal-Mart. If categorized as a "banking company", it would be the seventh largest bank in America. Because GE Capital is not a bank, it did not qualify for TARP funds under the Temporary Liquidity Guarantee Program (TLGP) funds. TLGP is a Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FIDC) program designed to guarantee unsecured bank, thrift, and holding company debt, thus strengthening confidence in the banking system. GE didn't qualify for the program - but close to $80 billion was funneled through two small financial institutions into GE's corporate coffers.
You see, GE Capital owned an FDIC-insured savings and loan and an industrial loan company in Utah. These two very small financial institutions made up only three percent of GE's total asset base... but gained qualifications to the TARP funds from the Obama administration under a loophole. Special privileges had to be manipulated through the system, but it was done quickly and, with Jeffrey Imelt in charge of NBC News, a GE company, publicity was contained.
Anyone who buys a General Electric product is supporting a company that has become one of the most skilled tax-avoiders in America. In 2010, GE set aside a mere 7.4 percent of its $5.1 billion U.S. profits to pay taxes. Actually, it paid practically nothing.
How do things like this happen? How do American taxpayers get nailed to the wall over and over and over again? I go back to my opening statement: The U.S. constitution is a "Let's Pretend" document without the Rule of Law".
Beginning with the next paragraph of the article she turns her focus to a subject that has troubled many folks across this land.
"I'm always 'preaching' about finding the core problem rather than being continually diverted by issues about which we can do nothing. This is a prime example. The core problem appears to be our court system. There are some interesting facts you should know about the American Flag, for instance, What does that have to do with our court system? Read on....
President Dwight David Eisenhower signed Executive Order #10834 on August 21, 1959. It is printed in the Federal Register at 24 F.R. 6865, pursuant to law, and says: "A military flag is a flag that resembles the regular flag of the United States, except that it has a yellow-fringe border on three sides".
Every nation in the world accepts 'The Law of the Flag'. Basically, it designates the rights under which a ship owner who sends a vessel into a foreign port functions and provides notice to those who enter into contracts with the ship master that he will use the Law of the Flag he flies to regulate contracts. The 'Law of the Flag' regulates the laws under which contracts entered into will be governed. See Ruhstrat v. People).
In other words Admiralty Law says that when a ship flies a Spanish flag, if you sign a contract with the Captain of that ship, any agreements or contracts the Captain signs will fall under Spanish law unless otherwise specified.
Further, there is a doctrine called "four cornering" a flag. According to usatherepublic.com, "By the doctrine of "four cornering" the flag establishes the law of the country that it represents. For example, the embassies of foreign countries, in Washington, DC, are "four cornered" by walls or fencing, creating an 'enclave'. Within the boundaries of the "enclave" of the foreign embassy, the flag of that foreign country, which will be enforced by the Law of the Flag and international treaty. If you enter an embassy, you will be subject to the laws of that country, just as if you board a ship flying a foreign flag, you will be subject to the laws of that flag, enforceable by the 'master of the ship' (Captain)".
So, when you enter your local courtroom and find a yellow-fringed flag, you may want to seriously question under what laws people who appear on that courtroom are being tried: The U.S. Constitution? Or, the U.S. Military? Or, Maritime Law? Or, the Uniform Commercial Code (corporate law)?
Admiralty law tells us that when you see a flag, you need to understand that in areas where a flag is "four cornered", you are being told which laws dominate that space. We are governed by the laws of the country the flag represents. According to President Eisenhower, a gold-fringed flag tells us we are under the rules and regulations of the military force that flies the flag.
FLAG Martial Law; "Pursuant to 4 U.S.C. chapter 1, sections 1,2, & 3; Executive Order #10834, August 21, 1959; 24 F.R. 6865; a military flag is a flag that resembles the regular flag of the United States, except that it has a YELLOW FRINGE border on three sides. The president of the United States designates this deviation from the regular flag, by executive order, and in his capacity as Commander-in-Chief.
FLAG Martial law; "Ancient custom sanctions the use of the fringe on regimental colors and standards, but there seems to be no good reason or precedent for its use on other flags". The Adjutant General of the Army, March 28, 1924, (11925); 34 Ops. Atty. Gen. 483, 485.
According to many Internet sites espousing expertise involving Flags, courtrooms that display fringed flags behind a judge is a military courtroom. Such a courtroom tries cases on the basis of military law, not constitutional law, not common law, but civil law, and not statute law. According to Army Regulations, (AR 840-10, Oct. 1, 1979.) "the Flag is trimmed on three sides with Fringe of Gold, 2-1/2 inches wide", and "such flags are flown indoors, ONLY in military courtrooms". This statement from an U.S. Army Regulation is extremely significant!
The gold-fringed flag only stands inside military courts that sit in summary court martial proceedings against civilians. These courts are partially governed by local rules, but more especially by "The Manual of Courts Martial", U.S., 1994 Ed., at Art. 99(c)(1)(b), pg. IV-34, PIN 030567-0000.
A judge who sits 'under' a gold or yellow-fringe flag becomes the 'captain' or 'master' of that ship or 'enclave' - or courtroom? That judge has the absolute power to make the rules as he goes. The gold or yellow fringe flag warns that you are leaving your constitutional rights outside the four walls in the room where such a flag is "cornered".
This is why so many judges are appointed and not elected by the people. Federal judges are appointed and not elected by the people. Federal judges are appointed by the President, the national military commander in chief. State judges are appointed by Governors, the state military commanders. Are judges appointed because the courts are military courts and civilians do not 'elect' military officers?"
I will conclude Ms. Barnewell's words at this point and pick up with, what are inferences in the rest of her post at 'News With Views'. Her post indicates that she knows much more than she felt free to share. In her post she even went so far as to state, "Your job on Monday ("should you accept it" - for 'Mission Impossible' fans): with a challenge.
Under martial law, you are presumed guilty until proven innocent. That would certainly explain many court decisions, wouldn't it? Every year, in January, the President, whomever it be, reauthorizes the Martial Law legislation that President Abraham Lincoln declared Martial Law in 1863, by signing the "Habeas Corpus Suspension Act of 1863. The law was signed by President Lincoln on March 3rd, 1863, and remained in effect throughout the Civil War. And while Wikipedia states that the law was withdrawn at the close of the Civil War, the law has never been formally or officially repealed. This simply means it is on the books and can be re-invoked at the wish of any sitting president of the United States of America. As I noted, every January 1st, of each year, the sitting President signs the re-authorization of that Act. It does not necessarily mean that it will be used, but consider it like a hammer hanging over your head.
The U.S. public have been under Martial Law since 1863 as a result of what many, even then, considered to be the darkest days of Lincoln's administration. It would take the reader weeks to read all of the discussions and remarks on this Act. These came be known as the 'War Powers Act'. If you doubt this to be the case then may I suggest that you 'Google' "The US is still under Martial Law from the 1860's" and read the information posted on www.fourwinds10,net.
Every time I see a picture of President Obama standing at the podium and see the gold-fringed flag behind him I am reminded of the fact that we live under a dictatorship, and so few people seem to give a hoot. Obama is our current CEO of the USA Corporation and the gold-fringed flags in the background stand for "ruled from abroad".
This is also known as British Maritime (military) Law and this is why the American flag always has a gold-fringe when displayed in the courts of the USA. You find the same in government buildings, and federally funded schools. The gold-fringe is a legal symbol indicating that the court is sitting under British Maritime Law and the Uniform Commercial Code - military and merchant law and not what is common or constitutional law, under the Admiralty Law of Flags. Judges will refuse to replace the flag without a fringe when asked by defendants who know the score because that changes the law under which the court is sitting. This symbol-duplicity is like your Strawman name in all capital letters on your birth certificate and social security card. The symbol has or adds an entirely different meaning to it by what is hidden from the public.
International Maritime Admiralty Law, the law of the high seas, began in Sumeria, and was perfected by Rome and continues to this day. Jordan Maxwell has explained that the way we trade commerce today is modeled after the Masons/Templar Knights' 1,000-year old system.
Jordan Maxwell says, "Notice how regardless of whether you send a product by air, water, or land - you "ship" it. The ship pulls into its "berth" and ties to the "dock". The Captain has to provide the port authorities with a "certificate of manifest" declaring the products he has brought."
Through a legal loophole the Royals have created, US citizens are considered property of the Queen under British Maritime Law. Since we are born of our mother's water, from the "birth canal", we are thereby a maritime product, a "shipped" commodity, Our mothers were delivering a product under maritime law and that;s why we are born in a "delivery room".
That's why the "doc" signs your "berth (birth) certificate," your "certificate of manifest". You're kept in the Maternity "Ward". Why a ward? No other hospital areas are called wards. Prisons have wards and wardens.
The United States Corporation came about just after the Civil War. The Act of 1871 was passed by the Congress creating a separate form of government for the District of Columbia, essentially turning it into a corporation. It was decided that employees would be called "citizens". So when you say in court on paper, that you are a citizen of the United States, you are not a free American, but an employee of the USA Inc.
When you get a fine, a ticket, a bill, or get sued, you must sign in all Capital letters. When you die your Masonic tombstone by law will have all Capital letters to show their employee has died. The entity that is your name in all Caps is your maritime Admiralty product code. Upper and lower case legally represents you, your body.
The Uniform Commercial Code was approved by the American Bar Association, which is a franchise, a subordinate branch, of the British Legal Association (the BAR) and its hierarchy based on London's Temple Bar (named after the Illuminati Knights Templar secret society).
Now, if you think it is strange that a court on dry land could be administered under Maritime Law, take a look at US Code, Title 18 B 7. It says that Admiralty Jurisdiction is applicable to the following locations: (1) the high seas; (2) any American ship; (3) any lands reserved or acquired for the use of the United States, and under the exclusive or concurrent jurisdiction thereof, or any place purchased or otherwise acquired by the USA by consent of the legislature of the state, in other words, mainland America.
All of this is founded on Roman law because the Illuminati have been playing the same game throughout the centuries wherever they have gone. The major politicians know that this is how things are and so do the government administrators, judges, lawyers, and inside 'journalists'.
Those who realize what is happening and ask the court for the name of the true creditor or recipients of the fines imposed by he "legal system" are always refused this information by the judges. The true creditors in such cases, and the ultimate recipient of the fines, are the bankers to which the corporation "country" is bankrupt.
Jordan Maxwell quips, "Lawyers or "barristers" have to take the Bar Association "bar" exam just as alcoholics go to the "bar", sugar-junkies eat candy "bars", and gamblers hope to get 3 "bars" on the slot machine. These all drive from the Templar's turn to the 13th century "Temple Bar" in England." Jordan Maxwell's videos are an education in the affirmation of the study of symbols. I began my own study of symbols of crests, coat-of-arms, and logos many years ago in the 1980's and was astounded by what is hidden in plain sight.
As I draw this post to a close, you can begin to see why the powers at be want to find ways to shut down the information highway on the Internet. This is another lesson of history that they do not tell in the public schools.
Maranatha, Lord Christ Jesus, come quickly,
