DILEMMA OF THE REPUBLIC
By Col. Ben Cameron
A REPUBLIC is a government of LAW, not of men nor the opinions of men. When Ben Franklin was asked “What kind of government did you give us?” he replied, “A REPUBLIC IF YOU CAN KEEP IT”
When the word “LAW” is mentioned, it should be made clear that LAW has been given by the Almighty God of the Universe. Instantly we are directed to the only valid writing of the Law which is the Holy Book or Books known as the Bible.
As we have mentioned in a past issue, when one uses the Bible as a reference, people seem to think in terms of “Church” or “Religion” when in reality the bible provides god’s LAWS for His people as NATIONS and GOVERNMENT. In fact, it is written to the NATIONS! In order to understand the book, we must of necessity locate the NATIONS TO WHICH IT IS WRITTEN.
Those who have read IDENTITY in the past, know that we have located the NATIONS to whom the Bible is written. They are the Tribes of Israel of the Bible. Their history and migrations have been recorded in the past issue. They are as follows:
DAN = Denmark
JUDAH = Germany
ISSACHAR = Finland
REUBEN = Holland
SIMEON = Spain
GAD = Italy
ZEBULON = France
NAPTHALI = Norway
BENJAMIN = Iceland
ASHER = Sweden
EPHRAIM = England (Great Britain)
MANASSEH = United States
LEVI = Priests Not a Nation
As one can readily see, the number 13 is symbolic for the true Israelites (NOT JEWS!) as there were 13 Tribes of Israel, 13 Colonies and 13 States of the Union.
We have already shown in a past issue where the United States of America in the Bible, that Jesus Christ identifies the Jews as NOT the Israelites and the important fact that Jesus is NOT a Jew! We will not repeat the details herein but proceed to the primary and vital subject of the Constitution of the United States. At this point we will again refer to the Holy Bible and expect the question, “Why the Bible?” The answer is simple. The Union of States known as the United States of America became a Union by a compact (contract) by and between the States. This contract is known as the “Articles of Confederation” and the source of the Articles is the Bible! For confirmation of this fact, see the official Text of Law “The U.S. Constitution Annotated, U.S. Code”. This can be found in your local Law Library. Since the Constitution was lifted from the Articles of Confederation, the source of the Constitution is there - for the same as that of the Articles - THE HOLY BIBLE!
The Union of States created by the Articles is to be in effect PERPETUAL, which on the other hand means FOREVER. Before we can approach the subject matter of a SOLUTION to the dilemma of the Republic, it seems necessary to review some of these historical documents that have been set aside and forgotten - when they should be studied and remembered. Let us therefore take the time and space to review the Articles of Confederation. The correct title is, “ARTICLES OF CONFEDERATION AND PERPETUAL UNION.”
To all whom these Presents shall come, we the undersigned Delegates of the States affixed to our Names send greeting. Whereas the Delegates of the United States of America in Congress assembled did on the fifteenth day of November in the Year of our Lord One Thousand Seven Hundred and Seventy Seven, and in the Second Year of the Independence of America agree to certain articles of Confederation and Perpetual Union between the States of New Hampshire, Massachusetts Bay, Rhode Island and Providence Plantations, Connecticut, New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Delaware, Maryland, Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina and Georgia in the Words following, viz.
“Articles of Confederation and Perpetual Union between (the States listed above).
The Stile of this confederacy shall be “The United States of America.”
Each state retains its sovereignty, freedom and independence, and every Power, Jurisdiction and right, which is not by this confederation expressly delegated to the United States, in Congress assembled.
The said states hereby severally enter into a firm league of friendship with each other, for their common defense, the security of their Liberties, and their mutual and general welfare, binding themselves to assist each other, against all force offered to, or any of the, on account of religion sovereignty, trade or any other pretense whatever.
The better to secure and perpetuate mutual friendship and intercourse among the people of the different states in this union, the free inhabitants of each of these states, pauper, vagabonds and fugitives from justice excepted, shall be entitled to all privileges and immunities of free citizens in the several states, and the people of each state shall have free ingress and regress to and from any other state, and shall enjoy therein all the privileges of trade and commerce, subject to the same duties, impositions and restrictions as the inhabitants thereof respectively, provided that such restriction shall not extend so far as to prevent the removal of property imported into any state, to any other state of which the Owner is an inhabitant; provided also that no imposition, duties or restriction shall be laid by any state, on the property of the united states, or either of them. If any person guilty of, or charges with treason, felony, or other high misdemeanor in any state, shall flee from Justice and be found in any of the united states, he shall upon demand of the governor or executive power of the state from which he fled, be delivered up and removed to the state having jurisdiction of his offense. Full faith and credit shall be given in each of these states to the records, acts and judicial proceedings of the courts and magistrates of every other state.
For the more convenient management of the general interests of the united states, delegates shall be annually appointed in such manner as the legislature of each state shall direct, to meet in Congress on the first Monday in November, in every year, with a power reserved to each state, to recall its delegates, or any of them, at any time within the year, and to send others in their stead, for the remainder of the year. No state shall be represented in Congress by less than two, nor by more than seven Members; and no person shall be capable of being a delegate for more than three years in any term of six years, nor shall any person being a delegate, be capable of holding any office under the united states, for which he, or another for his benefit receives any salary, fees or emolument of any kind. Each state shall maintain its own delegates in a meeting of the states, and while they act as members of the committee of the states. In determining questions in the united states, in Congress assembled, each state shall have one vote. Freedom of speech and debate in Congress shall not be impeached or questioned in any Court, or place out of Congress, and the members of congress shall be protected in their persons from arrests and imprisonments, during the time of their going to and from and attendance on congress, except for treason, felony, or breach of peace.
No state without the consent of the United States in Congress assembled shall send any embassy to, or receive any embassy from, or enter into any conference, agreement, or alliance or treaty with any King, prince or state; or shall any person holding any office of profit or trust under the united states, or any of them, accept of any present, emolument, office or title of any kind whatever from any king, prince or foreign state; nor shall the United States in Congress assembled, or any of them, grant any title of nobility. No two or more states shall enter into any treaty, confederation or alliance whatever between them, without the consent of the United States in Congress assembled specifying accurately the purposes for which the same is to be entered into, and how long it shall continue. No state shall lay any imposts or duties, which may interfere with any stipulations in treaties, entered into by the United States in Congress assembled, with any king, prince or state, in pursuance of any treaties already proposed by congress to the courts of France and Spain. No vessels of war shall be kept up in time of peace by any state except such number only, as shall be deemed necessary by the United States in Congress assembled for the defense of such state, or its trade; nor shall any body of forces be kept up by any state, in time of peace, except such number only as in the judgment of the united states, in congress assembled, shall be deemed requisite to garrison the forts necessary for the defense of such state; but every state shall always keep up a well regulated and disciplined militia, sufficiently armed and accoutered, and shall provide and constantly have ready for use, in public stores, a due number of field pieces and tents and a proper quantity of arms, ammunition and camp equipage. No state shall engage in any war without the consent of the United States in Congress assembled, unless such state be actually invaded by enemies, or shall have received certain advice of a resolution being formed by some nation of Indians to invade such state, and the danger is so imminent as not to admit of a delay, till the United States in Congress assembled can be consulted; nor shall any state grant commissions to any ships or vessels of war, nor letters of marque or reprisal, except it be after a declaration of war by the United States in Congress assembled, and then only against the kingdom or state and the subjects thereof, against which war has been so declared, and under such regulations as shall be established by the United States in Congress assembled unless such state be infested by pirates, in which case vessels of war may be fitted out for that occasion, and kept so long as the danger shall continue or until the United States in Congress assembled shall determine otherwise.
When land-forces are raised by any state for the common defense, all officers of or under the rank of colonel, shall be appointed by the legislature of each state respectively by whom such forces shall be raised, or in such manner as such state shall direct, and all vacancies shall be filled up by the state which first made the appointment.
All charges of war, and all other expenses that shall be incurred for the common defense or general welfare, and allowed by the United States in Congress assembled, shall be defrayed out of a common treasury, which shall be supplied by the several states, in proportion to the value of all land within each stae, granted to or surveyed for any Person, as such land and the buildings and improvements thereon shall be estimated according to such mode as the United States in Congress assembled shall from time to time direct and appoint. The taxes for paying that proportion shall be laid and levied by the authority and direction of the legislatures of the several states within the time agreed upon by the United States in Congress assembled.
The United States in Congress assembled, shall have the sole and exclusive right and power of determining on peace and war, except in the cases mentioned in the sixth article - of sending and receiving ambassadors - entering into treaties and alliances, provided that no treaty of commerce shall be made whereby the legislative power of the respective states shall be restrained from imposing such imposts and duties on foreigners as their own people are subjected to, or from prohibiting the exportation or importation of any species of goods or commodities whatsoever - of establishing rules for deciding in all cases, what captures on land or water shall be legal, and in what manner prizes taken by land or naval forces in the service of the united states shall be divided or appropriated - of granting letters of marque and reprisal in times of peace - appointing courts for the trial of piracies and felonies committed on the high seas and establishing courts for receiving and determining finally appeals in all cases of captures, provided that no member of congress shall be appointed a judge of any of the said courts. The United States in Congress assembled shall also be the last resort on appeal in all disputes and differences now subsisting or that hereafter may arise between two or more states concerning boundary jurisdiction or any other cause whatever; which authority shall always be exercised in the manner following. Whenever the legislative or executive authority or lawful agent of any state in controversy with another shall present a petition to congress, stating the matter in question and praying for a hearing, notice thereof shall be given by order of congress to the legislative or executive authority of the other state in controversy, and a day assigned for the appearance of the parties by their lawful agents, who shall then be directed to appoint by joint consent, commissioners or judges to constitute a court for hearing and determining the matter in question; but if they cannot agree, congress shall name three persons out of each of the united states, and from the list of such persons each party shall alternately strike out one, the petitioners beginning, until the number shall be reduced to thirteen; and from that number not less than seven, nor more than nine names as congress shall direct, shall in the presence of congress be drawn out by lot, and the persons whose names shall be so drawn or any five of them shall be commissioners or judges, to hear and finally determine the controversy, so always as a major part of the judges who shall hear the cause shall agree in the determination; and if either party shall neglect to attend at the day appointed, without showing reasons, which congress shall judge sufficient, or being present shall refuse to strike, the congress shall proceed to nominate three persons out of each state, and the secretary of congress shall strike in behalf of such part absent or refusing; and the judgment and sentence of the court to be appointed in the manner before prescribed, shall be final and conclusive; and if any of the parties shall refuse to submit to the authority of such court, or to appear to defend their claim or cause, the court shall nevertheless proceed to pronounce sentence or judgment, which shall in like manner be final and decisive, the judgment or sentence and other proceedings being in either case transmitted to congress and lodged among the acts of congress for the security of the parties concerned/ provided that every commissioner, before he sits in judgment, shall take an oath to be administered by one of the judges of the supreme or superior court of the state, where the cause shall be tried, “well and truly to hear and determine the matter in question, according to the best of his judgment, without favour, affection or hope of reward:” provided also that no state shall be deprived of territory for the benefit of the united states. All controversies concerning the private right of soil claimed under different grants of two or more states, whose jurisdictions as they may respect such lands, and the states which passed such grants are adjusted, the said grants or either of them being at the same time claimed to have originated antecedent to such settlement of jurisdiction, shall on the petition of either party to the congress of the united states, be finally determined as near as may be in the same manner as is before prescribed for deciding disputes respecting territorial jurisdiction between different states. The United States in Congress assembled shall also have the sole and exclusive right and power of regulating the alloy and value of coin struck by their own authority, or by that of the respective states - fixing the standard of weights and measures throughout the united states - regulating the trade and managing all affairs with the Indians, not members of any of the states, provided that the legislative right of any state within its own limits be not infringed or violated - establishing and regulating post-offices from one state to another, throughout all the united states, and enacting such postage on the papers passing tho’ the same as may be requisite to defray the expenses of the said office - appointing all officers of the land forces, in the service of the united states, excepting regimental officers - appointing all the officers of the naval forces and commissioning all officers whatever in the service of the United States - making rules for the government and regulation of said land and naval forces, and directing their operations. The United States in Congress assembled shall have authority to appoint a committee, to sit in the recess of congress, to be denominated “A committee of the States”, and to consist of one delegate from each state and to appoint such other committees and civil officers as may be necessary for managing the general affairs of the united states under their direction - to appoint one of their number to preside, provided that no person be allowed to serve in the office of president more than one year in any term of three years; to ascertain the necessary sums of Money to be raised for the service of the united states, and to appropriate and apply the same for defraying the public expenses - to borrow money, or emit bills on the credit of the united states, transmitting every half year to the respective states an account of the sums of money so borrowed or emitted - to build and equip a navy - to agree upon the number of land forces, and to make requisitions from each state for its quota in proportion to the number of WHITE inhabitants insuch state; which requisition shall be binding, and thereupon the legislature of each state shall appoint the regimental officers, raise the men and clothe, arm and equip them in a soldier like manner, at the expense of the united states and the officers and men so clothed, armed and equipped shall march to the place appointed, and within the time agreed upon by the United States in Congress assembled: But if the United States in Congress assembled shall, on consideration of circumstances judge proper that any state should not raise men, or should raise a smaller number than its quota, and that any other state should raise a greater number of men than the quota thereof, such extra number shall be raised, officered, clothed, armed and equipped in the same manner as the quota of such state, unless the legislature of such state shall judge that such extra number cannot be safely spared out of the same, in which case they shall raise, officer, clothe, arm and equip as many of such extra number as they judge can be safely spared. And the officers and men so clothed, armed and equipped, shall march to the place appointed, and within the time agreed on by the United States in Congress assembled. The United States in Congress assembled shall never engage in a war, nor grant letters of marque and reprisal in time of peace, nor enter into any treaties or alliances, nor coin money nor regulate the value there of, nor ascertain the sums and expenses necessary for the defense and welfare of the United States, or any of them, nor emit bills, nor borrow money on the credit of the Untied States nor appropriate money, nor agree upon the number of vessels of war, to be built or purchased, or the number of land or sea forces to be raised, nor appoint a commander in chief of the army or navy, unless nine states assent to the same; nor shall a question on any other point, except for adjourning from day to day be determined, unless by votes of a majority of the United States in Congress assembled. The Congress of the United States shall have power to adjourn to any time within the year, and to any place within the Untied States, so that no period of adjournment be for a longer duration than the space of six months, and shall publish the Journal of their proceedings monthly, except such parts thereof relating to treaties, alliances or military operations as in their judgment require secrecy; and the yeas and nays of the delegates of each state on any question shall be entered on the Journal, when it is desired by any delegate; and the delegates of a state, or any of them, at his or their request shall be furnished with a transcript of the said Journal, except such parts as are above excepted, to lay before the legislatures of the several states.
The Committee of the States, or any nine of them, shall be authorized to execute, in the recess of Congress, such of the powers of Congress as the United States in Congress assembled, by the consent of nine states, shall from time to time think expedient to vest them with; provided that no power be delegated to the said Committee for the exercise of which by the Articles of Confederation, the voice of nine states in the Congress of the United States assembled is requisite.
Canada acceding to this confederation, and joining in the measures of the United States, shall be admitted into, and entitled to all the advantages of this union: but no other colony shall be admitted into the same, unless such admission be agreed to by nine states.
All bills of credit emitted, monies borrowed and debts contracted by, or under the authority of Congress, before the assembling of the United States, in pursuance of the present confederation, shall be deemed and considered as a charge against the United States, for payment and satisfaction whereof the said United States, and the public faith are hereby solemnly pledged.
Every state shall abide by the determinations of the United States in Congress assembled, on all questions which by this confederation are submitted to them. And the Articles of this confederation shall be inviolably observed by every state, and the union SHALL BE PERPETUAL; nor SHALL ANY ALTERATION AT ANY TIME HEREAFTER BE MADE IN ANY OF THEM; unless such alteration be agreed to in a Congress of the United States, and be afterwards confirmed by the legislatures OF EVERY STATE. AND WHEREAS it hath pleased the Great governor of the World to incline the hearts of the legislatures we respectively represent in Congress, to approve of, and to authorize us to ratify the said articles of confederation and perpetual union. KNOW YE that we the undersigned delegates, by virtue of the power and authority to us given for that purpose, do by these presents, in the name and in behalf of our respective constituents, fully and entirely ratify and confirm each and every of the said articles of confederation and perpetual union and all and singular and matters and things therein contained: And we do further solemnly plight and engage the faith of our respective constituents, and they shall abide by the determinations of the United States in Congress assembled, on all questions which by the said confederation are submitted to them. And that the Articles thereof shall be inviolably observed by the states we respectively represent, and that the union shall be PERPETUAL. In witness thereof we have hereunto set our hands in Congress. Done at Philadelphia in the state of Pennsylvania the ninth Day of July in the Year of our Lord One Thousand Seven Hundred and Seventy-Eight, and in the third year of the independence of America.
(Signed by the delegates of the States enumerated herein - ED.)
In accordance with the provisions of the Articles, a method for the remedy of any defects existed, and a ratification by all of the states in convention for this purpose was necessary, a “Resolution of Congress” called for such convention. The Resolution was dated February 21, 1787 calling for the convention to be held on the second Monday in May next.
The “Virginia Plan” was offered to the convention by Randolph dated May 29, 1787. It was reported by the Committee of the Whole on June 13, 1787.
The “New Jersey Plan” was offered by Paterson dated June 15, 1787 and finally “Resolutions of the Convention through July 26th” were referred to the Committee of Detail.
Out of these suggested revisions and Resolutions, eventually through proceedings of the Convention thru September 10th - the states in convention arrived by Divine providence and guidance, the Constitution of these United States. Since most of the opponents of the proposed Constitution had objected to the omission from it of a Bill of Rights, and several of the state conventions had proposed that such a Bill be included, the First Congress at its first session agreed on twelve “Articles in addition to, and amendment of, the Constitution of the United States of America”, to be “proposed by Congress, and ratified by the legislatures of the several states, pursuant to the Fifth Article of the Constitution.” The first two Articles were rejected by various states, with the result that the third in the original series became THE FIRST amendment. Although no formal announcement was ever made, the ten amendments adopted appear to have been in force from December 15, 1791.
With the background of the Declaration of Independence and God’s Laws for the government of His people as enumerated in the Bible, we approach the basic principles for the government of the Union. It is quite obvious that in these days, this government is in deep TROUBLE. It is the time of Jacob’s Trouble and there IS A SOLUTION! Let us suppose that the 32nd state legislature enacted a “Resolution for a Constitutional Convention.” We have heard informally that 31 states have already adopted such a Resolution. It also seems that the politicians have been worried about the fact and have attempted to have some states rescind such resolution. But let us continue with our supposition. Just SUPPOSE it DOES OCCUR. Here might be the first step toward the SOLUTION TO THE DILEMMA OF THE REPUBLIC! At such a time as a Constitutional Convention is called for by the 32nd state, the only lawful delegates to such a convention would be those appointed by the states in accordance with Article V. of the Articles of Confederation. Please notice that this provision for a state to appoint delegates was not altered nor amended by the Constitution nor by the states in the convention which adopted the Constitution. In fact, it is confirmed in Article V. of the Constitution that such a Convention may be called. Under provisions of the Articles of Confederation, the delegates to the Convention would sit as A COMMITTEE OF THE STATES!
Let us now suppose that the Committee of the States in a Constitutional Convention were to decide that the Constitution needed ENFORCEMENT by the States rather than amendment or that the States, in such Committee, take the following actions:
DECLARATION OF PURPOSE BY THE COMMITTEE OF THE STATES
It is hereby declared that the purpose of the Committee of the States shall be to propose amendments to the Constitution of the United States in pursuance of Article V. of said Constitution AND FURTHER, to review past functions of the federal government as established by the States in contract by and between the States of the Union for the purpose of ENFORCEMENT of said contract (compact).
In pursuance of Article IX of the Constitution, the Committee hereby further declares that:

All private banks domestically owned in the United States (National and State Banks) shall hereafter function on a “commercial” basis only, maintaining a reserve of One Hundred Percent (100%) in cash of all Time Deposits (Savings Accounts). Demand Deposits (Checking Accounts) shall be maintained upon a commercial basis and reasonable service charges may be adopted for the performance of such banking services provided to the public. Existing private domestically owned banks may borrow from the United States Bank, an amount not to exceed Fifty Percent (50%) of the total amount deposited in said banks by depositors with Time Deposits (Savings Accounts), provided said loans are supported by adequate collateral from secondary borrowers (persons borrowing from the bank), and the interest charged upon such secondary loans shall not exceed the annual rate of Four Percent (4%) to the secondary borrower. Borrowing from the United States Bank by said private banks shall be computed upon month end balances of Time Deposits. Collateral requirement from secondary borrowers shall be in accord with good business practices.

The Social Security Act approved August 14, 1935, (49 Stat. 620; U.S.C. Ch. 7) and all subsequent Acts relating thereto, are hereby repealed. All accounts of funds pertaining to said Act shall be credited to the Treasurer of the United States. The Treasury Department shall employ the records of the Bureau of Old-Age and Survivors Insurance, and shall provide a monthly Old-Age Pension in the amount of Two Hundred Dollars ($200.00) per month to each citizen of the United States who resides in the United States and who has been previously eligible for said benefits.

Said Old-Age Pensions shall be paid for a period of Fifteen (15) years from this date, after which no benefits shall accrue to anyone reaching said age. As the beneficiaries decrease the Old-Age Pension will be phased to a completion.
Whereas Article XIV of the Constitution of the United States proposed by Congress June 16, 1866, was NOT RATIFIED by the Legislatures of the necessary number of States in pursuance of Article V of said Constitution, said Article XIV is hereby declared VOID and NOT a part of the Constitution of the United States of America. All acts of the Legislative, Executive and Judicial branches of the government alleged to be in pursuance of said Article XIV are hereby declared null and void. If previously enacted, hereby repealed.
Effective this date, the Federal Deposit Insurance Act is hereby repealed. (The Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation was organized under authority of Sec. 12B of the Federal Reserve Act, approved June 16, 1933 [48 Stat. 162; 12 U.S.C. 264]. By the Act approved Sept. 21, 1950 (64 Stat. 873; 12 U.S.C. 1811-1831), Section 12B of the Federal Reserve Act is amended, was withdrawn as part of the Federal Reserve Act and was made a separate, independent law known as the “Federal Deposit Insurance Act”. The Act also made numerous amendments to the former Federal Deposit Insurance law).

The General Accounting Office shall immediately commence an audit of the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation. The former functions of the Corporation shall be assumed by the Secretary of the Treasury of the United States.

Effective immediately the Federal Home Loan Bank Act, approved July 22, 1932 (47 Stat. 724; 12 U.S.C. 1461 et seq.) and Title IV of the National Housing Act approved June 27, 1934 (48 Stat. 1255; 12 U.S.C. 1724 et seq.) to include all amendments to said ACTS, is hereby repealed. All assets of the Federal Savings & Loan Insurance Corporation shall be delivered to the Treasurer of the United States. The General Accounting Office shall immediately commence an audit of the Federal Savings & Loan Insurance Corporation. Former functions of the Corporation shall be assumed by the Secretary of the Treasury of the United States.
Whereas the Constitution of the United States is a compact (contract) by and between the sovereign States of the Union and; by said compact (contract), the several sovereign States created an “agency” known as the “Federal Government and: said States enumerated all of the powers granted to said Federal Government as an “agent” of the States, and; by said Constitution (contract), the States and the people retained all powers NOT granted to the Federal Government (See Amendments IX and X, U.S. Constitution) and; All three branches of the Federal Government, have in the past usurped powers not granted by the States and have violated said contract (Constitution), it is hereby declared that all such Acts and agencies, departments or activities which may be functioning not in pursuance of said Constitution are hereby dissolved. These include but are not limited to:
Department of Health, Education and Welfare.
Selective Service System.
Housing and Home Finance Agency.
United States Information Agency.
International Cooperation Administration.
All Executive Orders entered in the Federal Register wherein Congress has unlawfully delegated its mandated powers to the Executive Branch of the government.
All acts of the congress establishing rules and regulations for the Judiciary which empower the Judiciary to do other than “rule upon cases at law” with the Constitution as the guide and basis for the ruling of the court. This includes but is not limited to “legislating by judicial fiat”.
Corrective action will be taken immediately by all concerned.
This ultimatum is an “Order to Cease and Desist”. It is directed to the Internal Revenue Service of the Department of the Treasury and to all employees of the Federal Government who might by their actions, be involved in the UNLAWFUL acts of said Department.
The charge is hereby made, that the Internal Revenue Code (enacted by Congress), is in violation of the Constitution of the United States of America. As such, it is ultra vires and NOT law.
Even though Congress was given power to tax the income of the individual by the XIV Amendment, no power was given to enact a GRADUATED income tax.
The taxing power of Congress granted by Article I, Sec. 8 of the Constitution has NOT been amended and the requirement for UNIFORM taxes remains as the law of the land. The “graduated income tax” is NOT UNIFORM therefor the Internal Revenue Code is NOT in pursuance of the Constitution! In fact, it is in violation of the XVI Amendment as well as many other provisions of he Constitution.
CONGRESS MAY NOT AMEND THE CONSTITUTION, nor may the Judiciary. It may only be amended by the legislatures of three-fourths of the States who are the parties to the contract.
If anyone doubts the legality of this published order to cease and desist, then let them read the IX Amendment to the Constitution! Further, let them read the provisions of Sections 241 and 242, Title 18, U.S.C. which make it a CRIMINAL ACT for anyone and for a government official to violate the Constitutional Rights of a citizen of the United States. Some Citizen’s Arrests are long overdue.
The Scriptures saith: “Ye shall do no unrighteousness in judgment, in meteyard, in weight, or in measure. Just balances, just weights, a just ephah, and a just hin shall ye have; I am Jesus thy God, which brought you out of the land of Egypt. Therefore ye shall observe all My statutes, and all My judgments and do them, I am thy God.”

THE BIG LIE
Those who are NOT the true Ish-ra-Eli (Israel) of the Bible, require exposure for their BIG LIE that they are the Israelites of the Bible. These, along with many false preachers amongst Christian denominations have laid a false claim to the title Is-ra-el. Support of their false claim would make Jesus Christ a liar - but we know that Jesus isn’t the liar - so it must be those who say that the Jews are the Israelites. See Scripture:
Deuteronomy 6:4 Isaiah 48:12 Ezekiel 39:7
John 14:8-9 Matthew 15:24 I John 3:12
Galatians 3:29 Matthew 23:34 John 8:39-47
John 8:47 John 8:39 John 8:33
Matthew 13:35-39 John 10:26-30 John 7:70-71
