In U.S. vs. JOHNSON, (76 Fed, Supp. 538), Federal District Court Judge James Alger Fee ruled that,

"The privilege against self-incrimination is neither accorded to the passive resistant, not to the person who is ignorant of his rights, nor to one who is indifferent thereto. It is a fighting clause. Its benefits can be retained only by sustained combat. It cannot be claimed by attorney or solicitor. It is valid only when insisted upon by a belligerent claimant in person." McAlister vs. Henkle, 201 U. S. 90, 26 S.Ct. 385, 50 L. Ed. 671; Commonwealth vs. Shaw, 4 Cush. 594, 50 Am. Dec. 813; Orum vs. State, 38 Ohio App. 171, 175 N.E. 876. [Emphasis added.]

Note the verdict's confrontational language: "FIGHTING", "COMBAT", and most surprising, "BELLIGERENT".

Did you ever expect to ever read a Federal court condemn citizens for being "passive" or "ignorant"?

Did you ever expect to see a verdict that encouraged citizens to be "belligerent" in court?

Again, we probably should thank Judge Alger Fee for informing us Americans.

This revealing statement succinctly describes the essence of the American legal system.

The court ruled that the constitutional right against self incrimination (Article V of the Bill of Rights) is not automatically guaranteed to any citizen by any government branch or official.

Moreover, despite the government's usual propaganda, this right is not made available to all persons: It is not available to the "passive", the "ignorant" or the "indifferent".

Nor can this right be claimed by an attorney on behalf of his client.

The right against self-incrimination is available only to the knowledgeable, "belligerent claimant in person", to the individual willing to engage in "sustained combat" to FIGHT for his rights.

Here we see that Government claims it is obligated to recognize your Constitutional right against self incrimination only if you fight for those rights.

The above ruling claims that our courts are free to ignore this right of any citizen who is:
1) ignorant of his right and/or
2) lacks the courage to fight for his right...

You can't be stupid and free at the same time!

This, as you may remember, is a constitutional right, guaranteed in the 5th Amendment.

Judge Fee has clearly pointed out that if we are ignorant of our rights, we have none.

Neither law enforcement nor the courts are obligated to help us secure our rights.

According to Judge Fee, both the courts and law enforcement will engage us in a form of non physical combat or fighting to see if we can be tricked or intimidated into giving up our rights.

We also see that our rights can not be claimed by an attorney.

It is to be assumed that the combat referenced by Judge Fee, would be our unwavering fight we put up to claim our rights, not only in court but in any situation that involves the administration of justice, whether it be the ordinary police, the FBI, the Department of Justice, or any other investigative government agency.

CHAPTER 62, 1871
16 United States Statutes at Large 419
CHAPTER 62, 1871 CHAP. LXII. --

An act to provide a Government for the District of Columbia.

Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United States in Congress assembled, That all that part of the territory of the United States included within the limits of the District of Columbia be, and the same is hereby, created into a government by the name of the District of Columbia, by which name it is hereby constituted a body corporate for municipal purposes, and may contract and be contracted with, sue and be sued, plead and be impleaded, have a seal, and exercise all other powers of a municipal corporation not inconsistent with the Constitution and laws of the United States and the provisions of this act.

The language of this act provides that the government of the District (the Federal Government) is a corporation, municipal in nature but still a corporation. Furthermore, District citizens ( United States citizens - U. S. citizens) will now be subject to corporation law as well as law of the Republic.

Corporate law is private law even thought the corporation is municipal. Generally we are led to believe that these corporate laws are laws of the people because they have came from Congress... they are not, they are private laws and can only be applied by contract. That is by our active consent!


Shortly after incorporating, the United States municipal corporation enfranchised its citizens.

"Enfranchisement. The act of making free (as from slavery); giving a franchise or freedom to; investiture with privileges or capacities of freedom, or municipal or political liberty. Conferring the privilege of voting upon classes of persons who have not previously possessed such. See also Franchise." --as found in Black's Law Dictionary, Sixth Edition.

Notice that the Enfranchised citizen is granted municipal liberty. Not liberty as it was known and practiced in the Republic, but liberty as defined by the municipal

1. Freedom from an arbitrary or despotic government.
2. Freedom from external or foreign rule.
3. Freedom from captivity, confinement, etc.
- Random House Dictionary (ISBN 0-345-38705-8)

At Section 8, the Constitution states that "The Congress shall have power to... exercise exclusive legislation in all cases whatsoever, over such district (not exceeding ten miles square) as may, by cession of particular States, and the acceptance of Congress, become the seat of the Government of the United States...", creating the District of Columbia.

What we know as Washington, District of Columbia. How many of us realize this creates a jurisdiction over which Congress has exclusive legislative authority?

We were just told this in the language of the Constitution, but did we understand it?

If not, thank you Department of Education.

And further, do we understand that this jurisdiction is not inclusive, to the Republic of the united States of America, it is EXCLUSIVE.

This means that the jurisdiction that is the District of Columbia is a FOREIGN jurisdiction to that of the Republic of the united States of America 1776.

F.Y.I.: Believe it or not, everybody's case is pretty much the same.
The "System" (b)leeds you to believe you are some kind of "special case."
The absurd accusations they have brought against you are NOT a "mistake."
It is a SCAM to keep you dizzy with and in fear.
Its NOT about "misunderstanding" you -- THEY ARE DOING IT DELIBERATELY!
Remember: Its their 'system' - not yours.

FOLKLORE? A man who, appeared on a criminal charge. The judge asked him if his name was "John Doe"
He replied; "My mother told me that was my name."
This statement then cannot be used to certify the identity of the defendant, as it is hearsay.
The judge looked at him a little funny, and asked, "How do you plead?"
To which the man replied,
"Judge, I'm ready to plead but first I want to know who is going to certify the charges to the court?"
That is all he said, and after the judge haggled with the clueless prosecutor a while, he cut him loose. Probably because they could not certify his identity, as he declined to testify as to his identity.
