"The modern banking system manufactures money out of nothing. The process is perhaps the most astounding piece of sleight of hand that was ever invented. Banking was conceived in iniquity and born in sin. Bankers own the earth. Take it away from them, but leave them the power to create money and control credit, and with the flick of a pen, they will create enough money to buy it back again. Take this great power away from the bankers and all the great fortunes like mine will disappear, and they ought to disappear, for this would be a better and happier world to live in. But if you want to continue the slaves of bankers and pay the cost of your own slavery, let them continue to create money and to control credit."
- Sir Josiah Stamp, Director and President of the Bank of England during the 1920's
There is a story. This one too, I know is true but I will never admit to being the thief.
A long, long, long time ago, back even before there were automobiles, people used to travel from village to village or city to city by horse drawn carriages. This was also so long ago that banks were still not invented. (Although, this is not a story about banks.) This meant that all the people had to carry all their money and treasure with them as they traveled.
There was a thief who would wait near the inn at which passengers would leave the carriage for lunch. This thief was especially adept at spotting a particularly wealthy individual who traveled alone. This thief was also very charismatic and once having seen his potential prey he would start an innocent conversation with this individual. He would then join this wealthy man for lunch and during the conversation would determine whether he was going to reach his destination that evening or would be lodging at some inn over night.
On this particular occasion the wealthy man had another three days travel before he reached his destination. For the thief, this was perfect. His next move was to purchase a ticket and travel along. During the afternoon leg of their journey the wealthy man would become quite enthralled with the thief and by the time the carriage reached its final stop of the day the thief had no trouble getting the wealthy man to agree to share a room at the inn.
Two things would now happen. First, the thief knew that almost all wealthy people hid their treasure somewhere in the room before they would go down for supper. So the thief would busy himself putting his belongings away and laying out a fresh change of clothes for the morrow. By doing this he gave his new “friend” time to stow his treasure. Now, the second thing happened. Just before the two were about to go down for supper, the thief would claim that a sudden feeling of sickness had just come over him. He would then beg the wealthy man to please excuse him from supper that night as he felt that it would be best if he just lay down and rested. As soon as the wealthy man left the room and went down for supper the thief, instead of resting, searched the room for the treasure.
But this time things did not work out as planned. No matter how hard he tried, he could not find the treasure. Eventually he knew his new traveling companion would be returning to the room so he had to give up the search and alter his plan. He resolved to carry on with this wealthy individual the next day and to pay more attention to where the treasure was hidden.
The second day past in much the same way as the first afternoon; with much great conversation. Again that evening they agreed to share a room and again the thief feigned sickness. Even though the thief had tried to see where the wealthy man hid his treasure he had not but felt sure he could find it with thorough searching. But alas, for the second evening in a row all his searching proved fruitless.
Finally, at the end of the third day, after the thief found no opportunity to relieve this particular wealthy man of his purse, and in complete exasperation he said, “Sir. I have to admit to you that I am a thief and for the last two evening I have attempted to lighten your load by removing your purse from your possession. Both evenings, no matter how I searched I could not find your treasure. Please, before you leave, tell me where you hid your treasure.”
The wealthy man nodded, then smiled. “I felt from the beginning that you might be a thief. So I hid my treasure in the one place I was sure you would not look. I hid it under your pillow!”
The greatest treasure any human being can possibly possess is freedom. In the above story one person has a treasure while another wants it. This story differs from our own condition only in that in the story the wealthy man may have come by his treasure honestly. Through our own apathy we have given our treasure away and then we spend the rest of our life looking for it where it cannot be found. But, our treasure only appears to be lost. It is, like the story says, hidden under our own pillow.
In the last chapter, I asked our Prime Minister to return our freedom. The truth is, he does not have it. The truth is that as long as I act like a slave I am a slave. Paul Martin will not tear down the hockey rink that makes playing a good game of baseball impossible. But what I want him to know, as well as every other politician and every other human being in Canada to know is that I have abandoned the corporation the government has set up in my original name. I have looked under my pillow and have seen my freedom. I wish to be free. Although at the moment I must admit that I do not know how to act as if I am free because my mind is still so bound by rules that have controlled it all of my life. I still see myself in a hockey rink. Paul Martin and the other politicians of Canada can tear down the hockey rink and help to build a baseball park instead. But only I can set my mind free and only I can determine the game I will play.
Also in my letter to Mr. Martin was this question, “Mr. Prime Minister, are you aware of the deceptive tactics employed by Canada’s law enforcement officers every time they issue a ticket to a motorist?” I said that this was probably done unwittingly. If you are a police officer you will be surprised to know that each time you asked a motorist to sign the ticket you are deceiving them. The following, burst bubble number 24, is from Robert Arthur Menard’s book, Bursting Bubbles of Government Deception. It is quoted here to ensure that all of us, along with the Prime Minister, know of this deceptive practice. Robert buts it like this:
Bubble 24: Violation Tickets and the Bills of Exchange Act
TICK, contracts. Credit; as, if a servant usually buys for the master upon tick, and the servant buys something without the master’s order, yet, if the master were trusted, he is liable. 1 Show. 95;3 Keb. 625; 10 Mod. 111; 3 Esp. R. 214; 4 Esp. R. 174.
Have you ever wondered why that when you get a tick-et, they give you a copy and not the original? Have you ever wondered why that if you pay the fine or ticket, there is still a conviction registered against your name? Ever felt them tickets were something stinky and sneaky? Tickets are actually Bills of Exchange and the entire ticketing process is the Notarial protest in a nutshell!
You are about to learn something exciting; when a tick-et is presented, you have the right and even the duty to take the original ticket and negotiate a payment within three days. If you do this, the Officer cannot give you the defendant’s copy and there will likely not be a conviction registered against your name. If they try to stop you from taking the original, they are agreeing to pay it for you!
Let’s look at what is happening now. An Officer will pull you over and will issue a tick-et. You sign it, (often with his thumb still on the ticket) give it back to him, he gives you a copy. That’s the process. What would happen if you tried to take the original? Would he let you? This is what Freddie Freepickle thinks; you have a right to take the original ticket and if he stops you, the ticket is dead, or discharged for he is not duly presenting it. Not only do you have a right to take the original ticket, you have a duty and the second copy is really evidence that you failed to accept the first! Ask yourself, and him, what right does he have to deny you the original yet impose a copy? Hmm? A copy can only be imposed once the original has APPARENTLY been dishonoured
Let’s use the Bills of Exchange Act to examine what is really happening. The first question we must ask is: Is a Violation Ticket a Bill of Exchange? The definition of bill of exchange, from the BOEA is as follows:
16. (1) A bill of exchange is an unconditional order in writing, addressed by one person to another, signed by the person giving it, requiring the person to whom it is addressed to pay, on demand or at a fixed or determinable future time, a sum certain in money or to the order of a specified person or to bearer.
Certainly would appear that a Violation Ticket matches that definition. If it is a bill, then when they are giving it to you, they are presenting it. They can prove they presented it too; after all, you have signed it, it must have been in your possession for some period of time, right?
Look at this section:
34. (1) The acceptance of a bill is the signification by the drawee of his assent to the order of the drawer.
35. (1) An acceptance is invalid unless it complies with the following conditions:
(a) it must be written on the bill and be signed by the drawee; and
(2) The mere signature of the drawee written on the bill without additional words is a sufficient acceptance.
In the Act the drawer is the one who creates the bill; the drawee is the one the bill is presented to. Imagine a waitress and a customer. The waitress is the drawer and the customer is the drawee. So they get you to sign it and thus accept it, but then they get it back from you immediately without you getting a receipt.
They are the drawer of the bill, they have proof you accepted the bill, then failed to pay for it and returned the unpaid bill to them. Obviously you have dishonoured their bill!
The following are key sections of the Bills of Exchange Act.
10. A protest of any bill or note within Canada, and any copy thereof as copied by the notary or justice of the peace, is, in any action, evidence of presentation and dishonour, and also of service of notice of the presentation and dishonour as stated in the protest.
11. Where a bill or note, presented for acceptance, or payable outside Canada, is protested for non-acceptance or non-payment, a notarial copy of the protest and of the notice of dishonour, and a notarial certificate of the service of the notice, shall be received in all courts as evidence of the protest, notice and service or copy.
35. (1) An acceptance is invalid unless it complies with the following conditions:
(a) it must be written on the bill and be signed by the drawee; and
(b) it must not express that the drawee will perform his promise by any other means than payment of money.
(2) The mere signature of the drawee written on the bill without words is a sufficient acceptance.
(39). (1) as between immediate parties and as regards a remote party, other than a holder in due course, the delivery of a bill
(a) in order to be effectual must be made either by or under the authority of the party drawing, accepting or endorsing, as the case may be; or
(b) may be shown to have been conditional or for a special purpose only, and not for the purpose of transferring the property in the bill.
2) Where the bill is in the hands of a holder in due course, a valid delivery of the bill by all parties prior to him, so as to make them liable to him, is conclusively presumed.
40. Where the bill is no longer in the possession of a party who has signed it as drawer, acceptor or endorser, a valid and unconditional delivery by him is presumed until the contrary is proven.
97. (1) Notice of dishonour may be given
(a) as soon as the bill is dishonoured;
(b) to the party to whom notice is required to be given or to his agent in that behalf;
(c) by an agent either in his own name or in the name of any party entitled to give notice, whether that party is his principal or not; or
(d) in writing or by personal communication and in any terms that identify the bill and intimate that the bill has been dishonoured by non-acceptance or non-payment.
98. (1) In point of form, the return of a dishonoured bill to the drawer or endorser is a sufficient notice of dishonour, and a written notice need not be signed.
130. No person is liable as drawer, endorser or acceptor of a bill who has not signed it as such, but when a person signs a bill otherwise than as a drawer or acceptor, he thereby incurs the liabilities of an endorser to a holder in due course and is subject to all the provisions of this Act respecting endorsers.
So with this knowledge, what good can we do with it? How do we use this knowledge to stop going into dishonour with the bills when they are purportedly presented?
First, when dealing with the Issuer, ask them these questions:
1. Is that a Bill under the Bills of Exchange Act? (In order for a bill to have validity, the drawer has to have the authority and knowledge to create it. If they don’t know, they are admitting to lack of knowledge.)
2. Are you giving me a ticket? (When he says yes, you have the right to take the ticket, not a copy of a ticket. If he gets mad when you take the original, just tell him “You told me you were giving me a ticket, not a copy of a ticket.”)
3) Am I dishonouring your presentment if I sign this and return the original?
4) Are you DEMANDING I return the original bill prior to being able to honour it?
5) Will you give me a receipt for the original before I return it to you? (a receipt is not a copy of it)
Try to do the following actions:
1. Make him properly present the bill. That means in your control and possession. If he has not let go of the ticket, he has not properly presented or served it. Do not try to remove or grab; lay your hands out flat and make him deposit his book or the ticket in your hands.
2. Remove the original before he can stop you. At the very least rip the ticket at the top so you can point to that rip in court as evidence of you trying to accept it.
3. The goal is for him to demand you return the ticket. The moment he does, he has rescinded the presentation and the bill is dead or discharged. If someone does want to collect for it, it will have to come out of his pocket! (You are demanding I return this to you without first paying for it? You have a gun and would threaten to harm or arrest me for accepting this bill? Ok…. But now you can’t lawfully give me a blue copy, because that copy evidences I was not willing to accept the original.)
4. Educate the Officer. The basic premise, that a copy cannot be imposed unless an original was offered and rejected is a hard one to dispute; it is fundamental in law and goes to the best evidence rule.
Now lets look on the back of the ticket.
Back of the Ticket:
On the back of the tickets they tell you that you have three choices; ignore, pay or dispute. If you choose to pay, you are agreeing with them that you are guilty and a conviction is entered against your name. If you ignore, it’s the same thing, you are deemed to have accepted the bill and you have to pay. The third option is to choose to dispute and this is where they really trick you. If you accept this option, you are wilfully stepping into dishonour. You have not exercised your right to discuss or negotiate and are jumping right into dispute. You have lost honour merely by wishing for dispute. You have abandoned the Rule of Law and there really is no sense going to court, for you have essentially already lost.
What you want to do is extend an offer to discuss and have them reject that offer. They are then the ones ‘wishing for dispute’ and thus are in dishonour. Realize that they are trying to create an adversarial relationship. They are your foe and antagonist. Let’s say someone tried to get you to consent to fight and then said, “You have to fight me and the first thing you have to do is bang your head against the wall or kick the curb.” Why let your adversary dictate the way you will fight them? Clearly they will try to get you to do something that is in their interest and not yours.
Wishing dispute is one of the stupidest things anyone can do. Make them state that they wish dispute or force them to discuss it with you. The Officer who issued the ticket will not like that. Defending in court he or she will get paid overtime; dealing with a Conditional Acceptance they will not. Plus, if they do not deal with it, they end up DISHONOURING THEIR OWN BILL and thus end up having to pay it themselves.
What do we do now? I have always been able to envision possibilities, but have not always been able to map the road to their fulfillment. I can envision all people free. Yet, I cannot fully see how we get there. That road has not yet been mapped out completely. That mapping will require the input from many others who have the ability, the skills and the desire to be free.
Let me first, however, outline our slavery so that we at least know our starting point. There is a major difference between the slaves on a southern plantation before the American Civil War and the human population of Canada today. That difference is that they knew that they were slaves. One of the insidious aspects of our slavery is that we believe that we are free. We could but up a strong argument to prove this “fact”. As stated above, our slavery was initiated at our birth when our parents were duped into believing that they were obliged to register our name.
Remember “Your birth certificate is one of the kinds of security instruments used by the government to obtain loans from its creditor, under which it is bankrupt.” (Bubble 2: Child Registration) When our parents registered our name a bond was generated in that CAPITAL LETTER NAME. The bond tracking number for that particular bond is recorded on the back of our Birth Certificate. Then, we were duped into supporting this bond, and confirming our acceptance of our position as slave to it, by applying for our SIN (slave identification number).
The fact that we have a SIN is proof of our pledge, promise, oath and obligation to support this bond. The government has received a loan backed by our labor for life. Our slavery is not to a human master, but to a monetary debt created and enforced by human bankers who used and continue to use deception to accomplish their goal. The need for our enslavement resulted from The Private Debt Money System. The very simple fact is that your freedom can only be assured by eliminating this monetary system and the debt it fosters. Instituting a form of The Public Credit Money System can do this.
It is time for kings, queens, emperors, bankers and all other self appointed rulers to resign and retire from their high standing and become productive members of this human family of ours. Figureheads need no longer apply. It is time for the corporations to become organizations that serve the people first rather than their shareholders. For the ones who think that this is impossible, step aside and watch those who know it’s possible show you how. It just takes the changing of one thought. It is time for corporations to lose their identity as “individuals” and assume their rightful identity as things that serve human beings.
It is time for the local humans of a community to determine what happens in their community. It is time to end the ability of large distant corporations to execute their will over the local populace. It is time for farmers to determine what is grown on their land, how much is grown and how it is grown. It is time for the individual human being to take president over things, especially money. It is time for governments to govern the will of the human populace rather than the will of corporations and banks. It is time for leaders to be followers of the direction of the people. It is time to work to ensure that all experience the great abundance of this world. It is time for all to eat well. It is time to end poverty.
It is not my intention to offend any with the following statement. It came to mind as I was writing the above paragraph. So I will state it with an explanation after. The thought came to mind that we should work to prove Jesus wrong in one thing the bible reports that he said. He said that the poor would always be with us. But as I see it, the poor can only be with us if we fail to live as he taught. He taught that we should house the homeless, clothe the naked and feed the hungry. If he thought that these people would always be with us he must have known we would not live as he taught. He was not the only one to teach that we should do unto others, as we would want them to do unto us. Six hundred years before Jesus lived, Buddha said the same thing, only a little different. He said that we should not do to others the things we would not want others to do to us. Whether it is said in the negative or the positive, it means the same. The point is, if we followed these teachings, there would be no homeless, no naked and no hungry. So, it is time to prove Jesus wrong. If you were starving and about to die, what would you want others to do for you? All this and more we can do.
For the Children
Only a few years ago, (1997 or so) I knew nothing of banking, paid little attention to governments, turned an apathetic ear to the plight of those in poverty around the world, (and to be completely honest, to those near me as well) and I had never even heard the name, Rothschild.
It was then, that I first heard that twelve thousand (12,000) children were starving to death every day, over four million children every year. Now, (March 2005) over eighteen thousand (18,000) children starve to death every day, over six million children a year. Over the last ten years over 50 million children have starved to death! The holocaust took six million human lives and we still grieve that number every year. But that same number of children will die this year and we don’t grieve as much for them.
If a plane carrying 250 people crashed near were we live, killing all aboard, we would feel great sorrow, not only for the lose of 250 human lives, but also for the effect that would have on their families and friends. Eighteen thousand children a day equals one plane loaded with 250 children crashing every twenty minutes; three an hour. Seventy-two planes a day, each carrying 250 children, crashing and leaving no survivors. Why do we not grieve as much for the seventy-two as we would for the one?
I understand apathy only too well. It has been a companion of mine most of my life. Apathy may be understandable when nothing we do can correct a problem. But we now know there is a solution; one that may require some effort and sacrifice, but with such great rewards that it would be a shame not to act.
Please, let us act.
So much from God
That I can no longer
A Christian, a Hindu, a Muslim,
A Buddhist, a Jew.
The Truth has shared so much of Itself
That I can no longer call myself
A woman, a man, an angel,
Or even pure
Love has befriended Hafiz so completely
It has turned to ash
Of every concept and image
My mind has ever known.
It is time to act as a human being for human beings. Only by doing what is necessary to guarantee that others be free to be what they want to be will we have the freedom to be what we want to be.
This is the end of this book, and the start of the work
