Melinda Pillsbury-Foster Americans Declare their Independence They had been expecting it since the unrest that rippled across America in the wake of the massive Bank Bail Out in early October. It was shorter than the one received by King George, III but this one had more signatures and was landing on the desk of every head of state. The one addressed to Buckingham Palace was one of many, neatly addressed and sent under ordinary mail and via email just to make sure they arrived.

Clever of those yanks to do it like this, the Under Secretary had said. Most of the paper was names in thriftily small print. Thick.


We, the Undersigned, hereby notice all that we are not responsible for the debts assumed by Congress, not for bailing out banks, not for any other irresponsible thing they do in our names.

This announcement came in a different form than the one in 1776, received by a close relation of the present monarch.

The Iconoclast was brought into the Queen's study on a silver platter, weighing down the wrist of the bearer, the Queen's Under Secretary. Leafing through the pages, the Queen perused the document. This missive was not aimed at her or her house. It was aimed at that nasty George W. and through him at his employers. Most people did not know that this latest event was one in a long chain of events, many of which involved her family intimately. She wondered , knowing that the world was coming down around all of them, what would happen this time. She sighed.

England lost control of their own money in the wake of the Battle of Waterloo, 18th June 1815.

The sons of the same gold dealer in Frankfort, today known as Rothschild, then as Bauer, had sent his offspring across Europe to set up banking interests decades before Napoleon met his fate. Bauer had made his fortune loaning out money to which he had no claim, a classic fraud. Setting up banking interests in major European cities they kept the family business close, marrying cousins. Old Man Bauer had originated fractional reserve banking and found in it the potential for amassing unlimited unearned wealth. He was eager to try it out on the world.

While the Battle of Waterloo raged they sent news that hope was lost to London; panicked, many sold their shares in the Bank. The Rothschilds bought. When the eagles of the French Empire were presented to the Crown and cheers were sent up few realized that England had lost the real battle. The tools of commerce had been used to wage war against a sovereign state; the Empire would now become the property of those same banking interests, sunk into a perpetual serfdom.

The eyes of those same bankers then turned towards America.

In 1816 the Second Bank of the United States was chartered as a private corporation. By issuing cheap money they immediately incited a wave of inflation that brought on over extension and a subsequent call in of loans. The suffering caused was real and intense. An attempt by Maryland to control banking within its own borders resulted in McCulloch v. Maryland 17 U.S. 316 (1819) {LINK}. This itself should have caused more concern. America's Constitution mandated the right of Congress to set up a currency that would serve, instead of enslaving the people. Andrew Jackson was elected partly in the wave of anger over the issue of money manipulation. Smashing the Second Bank of the United States was cheered by ordinary Americans and was viewed as a set back by the same banking interests who had cast their eyes there from Europe.

In his comments on July 10, 1832, Andrew Jackson said, "I sincerely regret that in the act before me I can perceive none of those modifications of the bank charter which are necessary, in my opinion, to make it compatible with justice, with sound policy, or with the Constitution of our country." {LINK} Old Hickory warded off the bankers for his time, but they never stopped trying.

In 1839 bankers and corporatized interests rang in another source for money that they used to insinuate themselves into positions of power.

That year the Opium wars were raging in the Far East with the United States and Britain accumulating huge amounts of cash and forming enormously powerful corporations and Banks centered in New York, The District of Columbia, and London. The force of military power was used to force the Chinese to accept the use of opium for the profit of foreign bankers.

The Bankers, motivated by the gleam of money, never stopped working to modify the law and persuade Americans to accept practices that they knew would enslave them. Seeing that their interests would be served best by altering the legal system itself the banking interests began a long campaign to extinguish the common law as the law of the America, substituting admiralty and equity law, limited forms specific to only maritime issues and probate courts. The Common Law, in which the jury possessed the absolute right to render verdict on both fact and law, had worked as anticipated by the Founders. It was the check and balance that kept control directly with the people. Therefore it must be eliminated.

In 1842 Swift v. Tyson, "rule in Swift" was extended subsequently to cover all of common law and not just that of commercial paper, bank notes, bankers acceptances and other forms of "near money." The corporations were making American practices friendly to their goals. Corporations wanted more potential for profit and less potential for liability. In 1851, an Act was passed called the "Limited Liability Act. For shipping insurance" The act accomplished this.

What brought profits was good, no matter what it cost in human suffering.

1856 another Opium war resulted in the legal importation of opium into China and even bigger profits for the corporations and Banks still centered in New York, The District of Columbia, and London.

1859 the decision to try to bring the law of the sea over the land came into full focus for those in power. A war was needed to change the ownership of property so a war they would get.

Lincoln's War proved to be yet another opportunity in the ongoing attempts to suborn the Constitution and take over the monetary system. Fought not to end slavery but to enforce the asserted right of the Federal government to tax states, the Civil War was a maelstrom of divided interests, those of corporations coming garbed in sanctimonious rhetoric had an eye firmly fixed on the bottom line. An attempt to again insert a private bank was thwarted by Lincoln in 1862 with the issue of the United States Note, known popularly in its day as a "greenback." This was Constitutionally appropriate money, used to fund a wrongful war, issued directly into circulation by the United States Department of the Treasury. {LINK}

In 1863 Lincoln said, �As a result of the war...the money power of this country will endeavor to prolong its reign by working on the prejudices of the people until the wealth is aggregated into the hands of a few and the Republic is destroyed. I feel more anxiety for the safety of my country than ever before, even in the midst of the war.�

Dead, he was less of a problem.

In the aftermath of the surrender the powers of invention exercised by the corporations knew no bounds. Using the cover of freeing the slaves the 1866 "Civil Rights Act" did two primary things. It removed the absolute property rights of individuals, replacing these with rights existing only under statute law. It equally enslaved all Americans. It was entirely un-Constitutional. We know it as the 14th Amendment.

The stage had been set for the Age of the Robber Barons. This can be best viewed as Greed wearing out its training wheels. Decades of gouging and the abuse of the legislative and judicial systems only whetted their appetites for more. The bully on the playground does not listen to reason. He continues to use intimidation and violence. The same is true of corporations.

The next decades were filled with frustrations for the real proponents of individual rights and freedom. Eventually, this resulted in the conclusion that people were just too darned stupid to make their own decisions. But, thought one well-meaning socialist Christian Progressive, if we could just make them do the right thing then we could fix this mess. The road to hell is always paved with good intentions.

In 1892 Francis Bellamy, using the first real Public Relations campaign in American history, persuaded the public that they should substitute the study of our Founding documents for a pledge of unthinking loyalty to a piece of cloth, thus was born the Pledge of Allegiance.

Bellamy was in love with the ideas of centralized planning having ignored the fact that America had failed utterly to follow the Constitution and the tenets of individual rights. He and other Progressives, attracted to the ideas of socialism, build a vision that was finally given wings in the glowing words of Herbert Croly's, �The Promise of American Life,� published in 1909. Teddy Roosevelt took the book to Africa with him and came back a believer.

It was stupid but they were well meaning. The centralization of power never worked, could not work because human beings cannot be reprogrammed and their very nature depends on determining for themselves what is best for them. You cannot tell even a two year old when it is time to go to the bathroom. You cannot tell a 25 or 65 year old either. They know.

On April 14th, 1912 the Titanic sank, carrying with it some of the more reasonable voices from American industry. The scene was set for a take over of monumental proportions.

In the late hours of the Christmas break of 1913 Congress passed the Federal Reserve Act. That year marked the establishment of the Internal Revenue Service to pay the interest to the bankers and also marked the end of medical choice for Americans with the granting of a medical monopoly to the American Medical Association.

Later, Woodrow Wilson, who cooperated so that his campaign expenses would be paid, regretted his support.

That much potential for power and profit proved to be irresistible to the bankers and those who sold munitions. In 1914 the War to end All Wars began in Europe. By 1918 it had converted lives into cold hard cash for the same interests.

Destroying the essential idea of individual choice, Prohibition, passed into law via the Eighteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution {LINK} was very different from the previous attempts to end the abuse of alcohol by moralsuasion. Prohibition banned the sale, manufacture, and transportation of alcohol {LINK} for consumption for the profit of criminal interests. It marks a move on the part of those same interests to profit without the threat of accountability. Despite the mythologies surrounding the period the effect was solely to capitalize crime and significantly added to the decline of social accountability. When the rhetoric used to justify and explain action is refuted by the observable facts we should believe what we can see, not the rhetoric.

Prohibition ended because 70,000 cases were filed against it as un-Constitutional with the passage of the Twenty-first Amendment, on December 5, 1933. {LINK}

But the bankers had been busy with other lines for profit. In 1929 the mania for investing in stock issues had produced a wave of seeming prosperity that allowed banking interests to harvest the labor of millions of Americans through that investing and fractional reserve banking. The set up was ready. The real harvest was yet to come.

By 1933 America was bankrupt, farmers could not put in crops; many were starving. To ensure that the results of the Federal Reserve Act of 1913 were not understood in their lifetimes Congress agreed on June 5, 1933 to pass House Joint Resolution 192. With that act the American people voluntarily gave up their Law and their gold, accepting in place of their own courts of justice, common law courts, for admiralty court, giving the corporations absolute control over the system of justice..

Today Americans are listed as assets for what we know as the Federal government. The National Debt is extrapolated on the credits each will earn during their life times.

Not satisfied with controlling the money and future earnings of all Americans in 1934 Prescott Bush and his friends attempted a military take over of the United States. That coup was thwarted by the man they hoped would carry it off for them against Franklin Delano Roosevelt, .Major General Smedley Butler. In his book, �War is a Racket,� Butler, a two time Medal of Honor winner, says, � I spent 33 years in the Marines, most of my time being a high-class muscle-man for big business, for Wall Street and the bankers. In short, I was a racketeer for Capitalism.�

General Butler turned the plotters over to Congress where the investigation took place and then was sequestered. Americans would not be permitted to know.

In 1939 the Second War to Convert People into Assets began. Smedley Butler had died in 1940, before America entered the war. As had become customary, it was accompanied by a blandishment of rhetoric that even the corporations were beginning to believe.

At the end of 1945 another tool of the corporate state was founded. The CIA was launched from Yale, staffed by graduates eager to live out the expensive fantasies of James Bond in real life. The policies that would shape the reign of oil continued, strong armed into existence through tools and institutions, like the CIA, that were funded by the American taxpayer. It was a fraud on a monumental scale, breath-taking in its scope. But it, and the earlier action was all based on fraud, something Americans need to keep in mind today. There is no statute of limitations for fraud.

By 1960 a reform movement, hankering for a return to smaller government and the Constitution was poised to take flight. Now practiced in the use of disinformation, insertion of operatives, and conversion, the campaign against Communism was launched by American government. Now we know that Communism, funded along with fascism by the same corporations, was no threat to freedom. But the waves of fear sold Americans on the need to eternal vigilance.

Two major spokesmen were inserted to carry out the suborning of the Conservative movement. Those men were William F. Buckley, Jr. and Ronald Reagan. In each case rhetoric was used to convert the meaning of terms such as 'conservative,' 'freedom,' 'rights,' and so forth to something very different. Targeting different movements that threatened their hegemony the corporations became practiced at control of the direction of policy and the ongoing political dialogue. Starting with the conservative movement they moved on to suborn the Environmental Movement, dividing right and left for control, in 1970.

All of which brings us to the three serial reigns of power that finally solidified the campaign that had begin in Frankfort, Germany at the same time Americans were fighting the First American Revolution.

Substitute for Communism Islamic Terrorism. The corporates are really very simple minded.

1980 � 1992 � The First Bush Junta

1982 � 2000 � The Second Bush (Clinton) Junta

2001 � NOW � The Flowering of Fascism in America

And that is the real story. It is time for the Second American Revolution, this time fought with the same weapons used on us. This will be a very different evolution.

First, get out of your mortgage. Don't pay it off. Cancel it and keep the house. See the Credit River Decision of 1968. Where there is no valid contract there is no mortgage.

Second, cancel your credit cards. Examine the 'contract' you signed. Cases being heard today are creating a body of decision that shows these are not valid debts because they violate the law.

Never fund your enemies.

Ignore national politics. Instead focus on returning your local county to government by the people. When we finish America will be free.
