A County "ORDINANCE" to which I was in opposition, passed on May 28, 2008.

On Monday, June 2, 2008 I visited the offices of the County Commissioners to view the signature pages to find out to whom the sinking fund interest would be assigned.

What I found was that the Lackawanna County Commissioners had signed an incomplete agreement whereby they had authorized their 'wet ink' signature to be used electronically.

For (at least) 71 years politicans have known, or had reason to know, how "bonds" are monetized. In knowing how bonds are monetized, there is NO excuse for them to allow anyone, or any entity, other than the CREDITORS, i.e., We, The People who have paid into these funds with our labor, to have the monetary advantages that these County Commissioners are "Assigning" to Banks and other private entities!

Were the Democrats and Republicans looking out after the best interest of we, the People, we should have MAYBE been required to pay a 'one time' property tax.

The one time tax would have allow our municipalities to bundle their assets and periodically re-invest the interest for the sole benefit of the people and their municipal infrastructure.

The signature pages of this ordinance, an ordinance that (when read in its entirity) claims that the Commissioners cannot be held liable for their decisions, shows a pattern of organized activity that includes local tax collectors up to, and including, judges who sit as treasonous pundits pompusoly rendering decisions that exclude the fact that this blatant fraud exist.

Bottom line: We are at a juncture in our history. We either continue to keep up the pace of making (analogous) bricks without straw for our feudalistic masters; or, we turn it about. We keep the monetary system the way it is and demand that we be paid what we are owed in repariations for the past 75 years that we and our ancestors have been enduring government extortion for FEAR of the 'pains and penalties' to do otherwise.

In The Scranton Times archives for April 19, 1937, page 16 I found the following article:


Washington, April 19 - Representative Lamneck (D Ohio) told the house today the federal reserve system is committing legally "the greatest burglary in history."

Critizing the system in the midst of a plea that the budget be balanced to avert "calamity," the Ohioan said that for a $300 investment a bank could get a $30,000 return."

If a burglar had a license to steal, he said, "he would at least have to carry away his loot. The federal reserve system has its loot brought to it."Lamneck said this was a procedure for a "steal" authorized by congress.

The treasury asks bids for several million dollars worth of bonds. A banker says he will take a million dollars worth and credits the treasury on his books with a million dollars.

Then he deposits the bonds with a federal reserve agent as collateral security for a million dollars in federal reserve notes and agrees to pay the cost of printing the currency - about $300.

He now has a million dollars in currency to balance the million dollar deposit he credited to the treasury.

He still owns the bonds and can collect the interest, about $20,000 a year on an investment of $300.

"Iron sharpens iron". Here is the letter I FAXED in opposition to the "ORDINANCE". Probably less than "perfect", but may be usable for others in their local dealings.

In accordance with the “severability clause” of 53 Pa.C.S. with this fax I am ‘voicing’ my opposition to the above captioned “ORDINANCE”. Attached you will find documents to support my Constitutional opposition which is also in accordance with Article VI of the U.S. Constitution, The Federalist Papers #48 and the concerns of the General Assembly of Pennsylvania under the Articles of Confederation in 1782.

I will attempt to make known my concerns from three perspectives; the lawful, the legal and the prophetic, within the parameters of your fiduciary duties as representatives to the people of the county and the essential characteristics of indenture contracts; those which are “adhesion” and “unconscionable”. But, first, I preface what I am about to say with the well known, yet to be rebutted, fundamental point of reference upon which I present lawful, legal and prophetic opposition to this, or any other such ORDINANCE that may be promulgated.


Recent documentaries have revealed that the cost to the owners of the Federal Reserve (those who print the American people’s ‘units of exchange’, i.e., “dollars” or “money”) is approximately $.042 to print a "bill" of any denomination, therefore, when a worker receives $10.00 for his/her labor the owners of the Federal Reserve profit approximately $9.958 just for printing that “bill”. Another +/- $2.00 (20%) Federal Tax is then demanded by agents of the IRS on behalf of those who print the money. As I calculate it, with the present use of these "bills", for each $10.00 of a working man's labor his DEBT to the owners of the Federal Reserve (those who print the money) is approximately $11.96. Should a laborer acquiesce by chip or plastic card (i.e., a likely future use of any “Real [government issued] ID”) to a totally cashless economy, the profits to the owners of the Federal Reserve will increase exponentially! Without consideration for other forms of taxation and interest on loans and mortgages, American men and women will profit those who oversee the manufacturing of the card or chip they must use; approximately $12.00 for every $10.00 of a man's labor! In fact, when you take the time to do the math, you will see that Governor Rendell’s $2.00 per hour increase in the “minimum wage” of Pennsylvanians still kept the affected ‘wage earner’ at “minimum wage” and essentially increased the revenues of the owners of the Federal Reserve (at least) $1.92 per hour, per the tens of thousands of recipients!

Today the people of our nation and this county are at a threshold. Will you, our elected representatives who took an oath to support, obey and defend with fidelity the Pennsylvania and U.S. Constitutions of a “republic” with a democratic process, support, obey and defend with fidelity that Form of government to which you pledge your allegiance and swore your oath? Or, Will you, volunteer the people of this county further into a “feudal” form of governance with a communistic “party” process wherein the ‘American dream’ will be based on an optimal form of voluntary indebted servitude to a (relative) ‘handful of men’ who print the money and “register” themselves as the “absolute owner” of that money.

According to "" - "All that is necessary for most contracts to be legally valid are the following two elements:

· All parties are in agreement (after an offer has been made by one party and accepted by the other).

· Something of value has been exchanged, such as cash, services, or goods (or a promise to exchange such an item) for something else of value. "

Therefore, given the binding nature of our freewill participation in contracts, it is disingenuous to believe that the "Charters" (i.e., the ‘corporate contracts’) that were granted to "new world" colonizers (including "William Penn, Esquire, and his heirs and assigns" in 1681 by Charles the Second, Chancellor Heneage, Lord Finch, and their heirs and successors) somehow (miraculously) disappeared in 1776 by a few (relatively speaking) signatures on a “Declaration of Independence”. Or, in 1791 with the ratification of the “Bill of Rights”, i.e., the first 10 Amendments to the U.S. Constitution.

Indeed, Esquire Penn's “tribute” obligations to his corporate feudal masters most likely remained in tact and it was simply a matter of business-as-usual for European investors to commission their 'privy councilors' to promulgate the contract law(s) that would continue to govern their global commerce to this day. No doubt that this was, and continues to be, easily done with the blessings of the people who have not yet recognized that their venerated Constitution was written in 'doublespeak'! Since the birth of our nation platitudes like "emancipation", "reconstruction", "reorganization", “war on terror”, etc. have toyed with our emotions and left us vulnerable to proverbial “ravaging wolves in sheep’s clothing”. Have we forgotten that "councilors" still promulgate the laws upon which the courts must act? And that the “privy councilors” became the “Board of Trade and Plantations”? What (now) are they called in the global marketplace? Are they now members of the World Trade Organization (WTO) who are using members of the United States Congress, State Legislators and Commissioners in “Quasi-Municipal Corporations” as their “Suppliers” of debt under the Uniform Commercial Code? Have you considered that you may have been “commissioned” to broker to corporate “masters” absolute ownership of other people’s labors and physical and intellectual properties?

THE LAWFULAccording to 'the freedom of contract' is "a power or right to contract and freely determine the provisions of contracts without arbitrary or unreasonable legal restrictions esp. as guaranteed under the contract clause of Article I, Section 10 of the U.S. Constitution". The Congress of these united States, however, had the power to Amend this Constitution: And they did!

THE LEGALWith the 13th and 14th Amendments to the original, duly ratified U.S. Constitution of 1791, preparatory steps were taken by Congress to, in a business-as-usual manner, re-venue into the system of government with which they were most comfortable ALL Americans who were willing to alienate (or lien) themselves from their "unalienable Rights" into a statutory form of feudalism. In 1865 the 13th Amendment was crafted with words that allow for 'voluntary servitude' and "punishment for crime whereof the party shall have been duly convicted".

Furthermore, Congress gave themselves the "power to enforce this article (the 13th Amendment; i.e., voluntary servitude) by appropriate legislation". The next step in this re-venuing scheme came in 1868. Complimentary with feudalistic governance and an (oligarchic) party process, Democrat and Republican members of Congress gave to themselves jurisdiction over the descendants of those Americans who voluntarily "ceded" themselves into statutory servitude in a manner consistent with the laws enacted to facilitate an economy based on the principles of “debenture”. With the assistance of the Democrat and Republican members of Congress, a silent (plutocratic) coup incrementally continued in 1913 with the passage of the Federal Reserve Act and the 16th and 17th Amendments, in 1933 with Roosevelt's monetary 'reorganization' (a “New Deal” for his plutocratic cronies), in 1964 with the Civil Rights Act, then with the Coinage Act of 1965 whereby, (according to wikipedia) constitutionally mandated silver was eliminated from the circulating dimes and quarter dollars, and diminished in the half dollar. In addition to the above provisions, for which it is best known, the act:

* Made all coins and currency of the United States (including certain bank issues) a legal tender. This has been taken to reverse the demonetisation of the Trade Dollar, and

* Gave the Secretary (of the Treasury) broad discretion to enter into contracts to assure an adequate supply of clad coins, without regard to public procurement laws.

Fortunately, in Pennsylvania, the crafters of the Pennsylvania Constitution had the foresight to provide remedy to those men and women who would become cognizant of this blatant “bait and switch” fraud and in Article 1, Section 17 provided that; "No ex post facto law, nor any law impairing the obligation of contracts, or making irrevocable any grant of special privileges or immunities, shall be passed." What safeguards are you putting into the above captioned “ORDINANCE” that will protect and defend the inhabitants within the County who choose not to have debt based “liens” placed on their “unalienable”/”inalienable” Rights?

Prophecy, when it comes to pass, is nothing more than the consequences of predictable societal behaviors.

The prophecy found in Rev. 13:16-17 seems consistent with the mandated Real ID AND with the anticipated consequences of the normal behaviors of a statutorily oppressed people who may be “fearful, and unbelieving” (Rev. 21:8).

"And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads (i.e., perhaps a ‘mind set’ in the ‘executive functioning’ area of one’s brain?): And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name"

BUT, (if I’m correct in my assessment) there’s another side of this prophecy. It’s found in Rev. 18:11–13:

“And the merchants of the earth shall weep and mourn over her; for no man buyeth their merchandise any more: The merchandise of gold, and silver, and precious stones, . . . and fine flour, and wheat, and beasts, and sheep, and horses, and chariots, and slaves, and souls of men.”

Who knows! It may be that all that is needed is a leader with access that encourages and sustains the “courage” of others to come out of an economic bondage of their own making. After all, one would think that a people who have been praying “Thy kingdom come” for 2000 years and have the ability to “bind” and “loose” at will would be more than willing to follow such a leader and collectively shake off their oppressors.

In my opinion, the promulgation of this “ORDINANCE” is a mere formality to give credible authority to a parallel system of feudal governance that IF ALLOWED will authorize the final death blow to our (previously guaranteed) constitutional republic, and usher in that which “Christians” have feared for two millennia.

I can only quote scripture, speak from the objective lessons of History. The destiny of our nation begins at the local levels of government; i.e., with you.

Therefore, it is my desire that whatever you, in the office of “County Commissioner” decide to do that you include provisions that will “support, obey and defend” the Constitutional protections provided for men and women, like my self, who choose NOT to apply for commercial benefits and privileges that must be paid for with a debt-based currency, a “legal” fiat “tender” that alienates us from our “unalienable Rights” and causes many to suffer undue ‘pains and penalties’ from court officers who choose to gain political favor by sustaining, what amounts to, treasonous Bills of Attainder.

My personal evaluation of the lawful, legal and prophetic characteristics of the proposed mandated legislation has been from the vantage of a 1960’s era (pre Treasury Department “mercenary”) Navy veteran who took an oath to protect and defend the U.S. Constitution. I am a woman who believes the "self evident truth" that she "resides" in her "freehold" (i.e., her "self"/”body” whose name is the “title” that “identifies” her) until she returns (at death) to her "domicile" wherein she must give an account to her “Creator”. With that said, ANY “AGREEMENT”; i.e., “CONTRACT” that you would make for debt based money, that essentially enslaves the labors of my future generations to the future generations of the mere men who print that money, would violate my Sovereign's Law against "coveting" that “benefit” or “privilege”, and "stealing" to get it! Such are the characteristics and subsequent consequences of the indenture contracts that have been legislated by Democrat and Republican Congressional and State legislators since the Civil War. Clearly, we, the inhabitants of our nation, and Lackawanna County, have been legislated into a form of mandated statutory feudalism by systemic adhesion and unconscionable contracts with those who print the U.S. currency, our mandated unit of exchange. Our ‘legal tender’ has been monopolized by a global oligarchy of plutocrats whose ultimate goal appears to be the megalomaniacal occupation and distribution of the labors and produce of our global resources; human and otherwise. The councilors who craft and mandate ORDINANCES such as this would, at the founding of our republic, have been “guilty of high treason”! I ask that you reject this proposed “ORDINANCE”, which appears to be based on FRAUD, and negotiate that reparations be demanded that would return to the inhabitants, i.e., the true “creditors” in this current economy, that which they had paid in “taxes” to Lackawanna County since 1965. Once the constitutionally proper relationship is re-established, I anticipate that successful economic conditions will prevail, not only for the county, but all who dwell therein.
Respectfully yours,
