THE CONSTITUTIONAL REPUBLIC
By Col. Ben Cameron
This issue of IDENTITY is dedicated to the Constitution of these United States. It has been clear for many years that the Christian and Bible background of the Constitution has been neglected, not only in our schools, but in all areas of government, both State and Federal.
In our last issue of IDENTITY, we discussed briefly the Christian background of our nation. On the 29th of February 1892, in a case involving the Holy Trinity Church vs United States, 143 U.S. 471, the Supreme Court formally declared this Republic to be a CHRISTIAN nation. The original settlers declared in written documents of government that their primary motivation in coming to this continent was the advancement of the Christian Faith. The legal instruments of the colonies made it clear that the Laws of the BIBLE controlled the life of the people in this nation. In some of their constitutions they declared that one of the major purposes of government is to establish the Kingdom of Jesus Christ.
Many do not realize that the Constitution of these States, United into a Union, is a CONTRACT by and between the STATES of this Union. Yes, the PEOPLE are involved because the contract was made by and on behalf of the People, represented by the STATES.
The Preamble of the Constitution reads: “WE, THE PEOPLE of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquillity, provide for the common defense, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.”
In order to better understand the Preamble, we must review some history leading up to its declaration. We see that the People wanted to form a “MORE PERFECT” Union. More Perfect from WHAT? From the Union originally formed under the ARTICLES OF CONFEDERATION - obviously! But the original contract (The Articles) were adopted by the States to be PERPETUAL, which means “forever” and they were not to be altered, amended nor repealed! Now we see that the Constitution was lifted from the Articles of Confederation. All provisions of the original contract that were not carried over into the Constitution, had to be enacted into Law by the first and second Continental Congresses. This was done and known as the United States Code. The statute law, along with the Constitution, is known as the organic law of the United States. When we read the Law Text, The U.S. Constitution (annotated), U.S. Code, we see the statement that the origin of the Articles of Confederation is the HOLY BIBLE! Then the BIBLE is the source of the CONSTITUTION. Without the Bible, we have NO CONSTITUTION and NO LAW in the land.
As we move in review of history prior to the adoption of the Constitution, we see that the Colonies were separate SOVEREIGN Republics. This same status remained when the Colonies became States of the Union. The Governors of the STATES existed before we had a UNITED States of America. The Governors were AND STILL REMAIN as Chief Law Enforcement Officers of the States. They had MILITARY power as Commander-in-Chief of their State Militia BEFORE the United States (federal government) was formed and this military power REMAINS to this day with the GOVERNORS of the respective States. The President of the UNITED States (federal government) was given the TITLE of Commander-in-Chief of the Army and the Navy, by the Constitution. Let us take note that this is a TITLE ONLY, not a RANK. In other words, the President of the United States has NO MILITARY RANK. The purpose of giving him the TITLE was to retain CIVILIAN control over the military and as such, the President is a CIVILIAN. He has no power to declare Martial Law at any place at any time. ONLY A GOVERNOR OF A STATE may declare Martial Law! He is a MILITARY OFFICER of his State as the Commander-in-Chief of his STATE MILITIA!
Well, you say, “I didn’t know this.” It seems that the Governors of the States and past Presidents, as well as the present President, didn’t know it either. BUT NOW THEY KNOW! WE JUST TOLD THEM!
Again we will move in review of history prior to the adoption of the Constitution but this time we will go to a point prior to the Articles of Confederation. We will return to the DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE. “When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the Powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature AND OF NATURE’S GOD entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation. - We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men (Adamites - Ed.) are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed. That whenever any Form of government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shown, that mankind (Adam’s kind) are disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security. Such has been the patient sufferance of these Colonies; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former Systems of government. The history of the present King of Great Britain is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute Tyranny over these States. To prove this, let facts be submitted to a candid world.”
With the above Declaration in mind, let us review the FACTS that are before us this day in the year of Jesus Christ, 1971:
The Congress of the United States has dissolved representative government by its legislative abolishment of the “rights of the people” secured in the 9th and 10th Amendment - by its acceptance of and its submission to the United Nations Charter, all in violation of each Congressman’s Oath of Office and all in violation of the contract by and between the States (the Constitution). See Section 1001, Title 18, U.S. Code.
The Congress of the United States has unlawfully delegated its mandated powers to other branches of the federal government and to non-government agents.
The Congress has unlawfully taxed the people of the States of this Union for the support of alien and foreign governments, when in fact, there is no power granted to the Congress by the Constitution to do so. This is a usurpation of power in violation of the 9th and 10th Amendments specifically and the contract between the States and its agent. (The Constitution).
The Congress has unlawfully delegated its power granted and mandated by the Constitution, to coin Money, regulate the Value thereof, and of foreign Coin, and fix the Standard of Weights and Measures. By the unlawful Federal Reserve Act of 1913, claimed to be enacted by Congress assembled, when in fact no quorum existed in the Congress to enact said unlawful legislation - the mandated power of Congress was delivered to a privately-owned Corporation known as the “Federal Reserve System”.
The Congress has unlawfully enacted legislation to establish a Communist-inspired “GRADUATED” Income Tax upon the individual citizens of the States, which purports to deprive the citizens of their God-given rights retained by the People under the Amendments to the constitution known as the “Bill of Rights”. Said legislation, known as Title 26, U.S.C. (Internal Revenue Code) is not only in violation of Article I, Section 8, Clause 3 of the Constitution which requires that all Duties, Imposts and Excises shall be UNIFORM throughout the United States but is in direct violation of the entire Constitution and is therefore ultra-vires, unlawful and of no legal effect.
The Congress has unlawfully accepted and implemented WORLD GOVERNMENT as set forth in U.S. State Department document No. 7432 as follows: “To assist in the gradual emergence of a genuine WORLD COMMUNITY, based on cooperation and law, through the establishment and development of such organs as the UNITED NATIONS, the WORLD COURT, the WORLD BANK & MONETARY FUND, and other GLOBAL and REGIONAL institutions; that is, a WORLD COMMUNITY under law.” - the contract between the States of this Union (Constitution) does NOT grant power to the Congress, nor to any other branch of the Federal Government (an agent of the States), to alter or amend our Form of government by any means whatsoever. The Constitution does NOT provide for WORLD GOVERNMENT not for our participation in such form of government. All such Acts of the Congress are ultra-vires, unlawful and not binding upon the States nor the People of this Union.
The Congress has unlawfully delegated its mandated legislative power to other branches of the government by permitting rules and regulations of commissions and bureaus to claim that their acts are law by publication in the Federal Register. These violations of the constitution have been committed under the unlawful “Administrative Procedures Act” of 1946 as well as other Acts of Congress which do NOT comply with Article I, Section I of the contract between the States (Constitution). “ALL legislative powers. . . . .shall be vested in a CONGRESS of the United States which shall consist of a Senate and a House of Representatives.”
The Congress has failed to execute the power of Impeachment granted and mandated by Article I, Section 2 of the Constitution. It has further failed to uphold Article II, Section 4 of the Constitution which says: “The President, Vice President and all civil Officers of the United States, shall be removed from Office on Impeachment for, and conviction of, Treason, Bribery, or other high Crimes and Misdemeanors.” In 1787, while the Constitutional Convention was in session, Warren Hastings, the first Governor General of Bengal, was by the House of commons impeached “of high crimes and misdemeanors.” Hence the same words in our Constitution. As the charges against Hastings were of confiscation of property and oppressiveness in government, the English definition of the words are inferred from the accusation. The managers of the impeachment of President Johnson contended that “an impeachable crime or misdemeanor. . . .may consist of a violation of the constitution, of law, OF AN OFFICIAL OATH, or of duty by an act committed OR OMITTED, or, without violating a positive law, by abuse of discretionary powers from improper motives, or from an improper purpose.” At this point, the Congress is directed to the charges and specifications outlined in this document against the federal Executive and Judiciary.
The Congress has unlawfully abdicated its Constitutionally mandated powers under Article I, Section 8, Clause 11 of the Constitution to declare war. It has unlawfully permitted the Executive Branch of the federal government to expend funds and commit our Armed Forces to combat outside the continental limits of the United States without a declaration of war by the Congress. It has further enacted unlawful legislation without a declaration of national emergency or declaration of war, to require service by the youth of this Republic in violation of Article XIII, Section 1 of the Constitution which reads: “Neither slavery nor involuntary servitude, except as a punishment for crime whereof the party shall have been duly convicted, shall exist within the United States, or any place subject to their jurisdiction.” At this point we might make it clear that we will fight for our country, right or wrong, it is our country - BUT - for us to do so, Congress MUST DECLARE WAR, tell our Military WHO the enemy is and WHERE he is - and then place ALL of the might and resources of this Republic behind the military to WIN said war and WIN NOW! In war, there is no substitute for victory!
The congress has enacted legislation such as “Civil Rights”, Social Security, Acts relative to the Schools and Educational process, Voting by the citizens of the States, unlawful taxation of citizens of the States, unlawful delegation of its mandated powers, and the Congress, by its OMISSION of duty has permitted the Judiciary as well as the Executive branches of government to USURP powers NOT GRANTED to any branch of the Federal government by the Constitution, to the extent that it has become necessary and proper that the descendants of those who made this country great, make reference to the DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE - not to oppose that form of Government given to us by our forefathers, but to oppose those who would subvert it.
Again, with the Declaration of Independence in mind let us review the FACTS that are before us this day.
The Executive Branch of the federal government is now brought into view. This includes past Presidents as well as present. It also includes all officials of the government who function under the supervision of the Executive Branch. Collectively and individually, these have committed (or omitted) the following:
Through treaties and International Agreements, have unlawfully and in violation of their respective oaths of Office, attempted to alter the form of government established under the constitution and the Organic Laws of these United States of America.
Conspired with other officials, bureaus and agencies of the federal government such as the Department of Justice, the Department of Health Education & Welfare, the Department of Defense, the Treasury Department, the Department of State, and Members of Congress, to deprive citizens of these United States and citizens of the respective States of the Union, of their individual RIGHTS which have been guaranteed them under the Constitution of these United States. All of this, in violation of the oath of Office to support and defend the Constitution of the United States WHICH IS TAKEN UPON THE HOLY BIBLE!
Violated Article I, Section 7, Clause 1 of the Constitution by deficit spending in excess of the legal debt ceiling. IN his state of the World address and again in his budget report, the President outlined a full employment economy to be thrust upon the people without new taxes or additional sources of federal income - except by a promise of further deficit spending which brings on the most cruel tax of all - “inflation”. The federal government HAS NO MONEY. The federal Congress, on June 3, 1970, at the President’s request, increased the permanent debt ceiling to 380 billion and the temporary ceiling to 395 billion dollars (?), thus authorizing the Executive branch to sell U.S. Bonds and pledge future tax revenue to that extent. The President asked the INDEPENDENT Federal Reserve System to come up with enough NEW MONEY (?) to achieve his objective. In short, use the primary CAUSE of inflation (printing press money) to combat inflation. The Federal Reserve is NOT an agency of the government. It is a PRIVATE banking monopoly. All of these acts are in violation of the Constitution, specifically Article I, Sections 7 and 8. The President’s Oath is to uphold the Constitution. He is President of the STATES of the Union, not the WORLD! It has been said before, that the policies of the monarch are always those of his creditors.
Since 1950 and the Korean “police action”, the Executive has usurped Military authority not given by the States in their contract known as the Constitution. Without a declaration of national emergency or declaration of war by Congress, the President is Commander-in-Chief of the Army and Navy by TITLE, NOT BY A MILITARY RANK. He is a CIVILIAN and the purpose of the “Title” was to maintain CIVILIAN control over the military. When a President unlawfully declares himself a MILITARY officer under such circumstances, he is in fact, declaring a Military dictatorship over the people and the States of this Republic. An unlawful attempt to alter our government.
The Executive has appointed individuals to positions of authority in our government, who are not qualified to be citizens of the United States and who are not qualified for security clearance under the laws of our government. This is in violation of the Oath of Office.
The Executive has conducted military operations placing the Armed Forces of these United States into combat in areas outside the territorial limits of the United States, without a Declaration of War by the Congress as required by the Constitution. These acts are without lawful authority and are in direct violation of the constitution and the Oath of Office. The executive branch has submitted the military and combat plans of our Armed Forces to the United Nations PRIOR to their being carried out, thereby making it possible for the enemy to be advised of future contemplated military actions. This, although in accord with the United Nations Charter, is giving “aid and comfort to the enemy” and is defined in the Constitution as TREASON!
The Executive, by unlawful treaties and agreements, has attempted to alter our Form of government transferring Sovereign powers to the United Nations, attempting thereby to subject the States and the People of this Republic to an unlawful WORLD GOVERNMENT. All such acts are in violation of the contract by and between the States and are ultra-vires, unlawful and not binding upon the States nor the People of this Republic. Those committing such acts and those supporting them, are domestic enemies of these United States.
The Executive, by implementing unlawful Executive Orders which purport to be legislative Acts, is attempting to unlawfully amend the Constitution of these United States, usurping the powers of the legislature and acting unlawfully and in violation of the Oath of Office and the Constitution itself. Said acts are ultra-vires, unlawful and not binding upon the States nor the People of this Republic.
Again, with the Declaration of Independence in mind let us review more FACTS that are before us today.
The Judiciary of the Federal government is now being viewed. The constitution reads thusly: Article III, Section 1 - “The Judicial Power of the United States, shall be vested in one Supreme Court, and in such inferior Courts as the Congress may from time to time ordain and establish.” Isn’t that interesting! Only the Supreme court is established by the constitution. All others BY CONGRESS! Continuing with Section 1, we read: “The Judges, both of the Supreme and inferior Courts, shall hold their Offices during GOOD BEHAVIOUR, and shall, at stated Times, receive for their Services a Compensation which shall not be diminished during their Continuance in Office. (Why are we told that the Judges are appointed for life?)(Also why do the Judges submit to with-holding of Income Tax from their salary when it shall not be diminished?) As we continue reading Article III of the Constitution, we find that NO-WHERE has the Judiciary (Supreme Court or inferior courts) been granted a power to “legislate”, nor to interpret the law. In reviewing the 10th Amendment we see that if a power is NOT enumerated for a branch of the federal government, then THEY DO NOT HAVE IT! With these constitutional provisions in mind, let us now charge the Judiciary as follows:
The Supreme Court and the inferior courts which have been established by Congress, have issued so-called “Court Orders or decrees”, claiming that such are the “LAW OF THE LAND”. The Supreme Court has enacted rules of Judicial Procedure for the inferior courts, whereas the Constitution does not provide for such power by the Supreme court. Both the inferior courts and the Congress have submitted to this unlawful and unconstitutional act. In many cases, these rules of procedure violate the rights of individuals, denying them “due process of law” and their rights as retained under the Constitution. In fact, these rules constitute an unlawful “dictatorship of the Courts”. An attempt to alter our form of government!
Many members of the judiciary have conspired with officials of bureaus and agencies of the Executive Branch of the Government in the deprivation of Constitutional rights of citizens, employing unlawful and unconstitutional rules of procedure rather than the Constitution as a basis for their rulings.
Many members of the judiciary, by their statements, rulings on cases at law and by their unlawful usurpation of power, have indicated without a doubt that their actions are NOT “good behavior” and that under Article III, Section 1 of the Constitution, should be removed from office. Defiance of and repudiation of the Constitution is NOT “good behavior”.
In conclusion, it is quite clear that the Legislative, the Executive and the Judiciary of the federal government, have, combined with others, attempted to subject this Christian Republic to a jurisdiction of an unlawful World Government, the United Nations, and to a WORLD COURT, all of which are foreign to our Constitution. All have given their assent to acts of “PRETENDED” legislation. All have joined together with the anti-Christ forces to subvert the Constitution and to destroy the freedom and independence of the People of these Christian United States. NO AMERICAN COLONY ever suffered such abuses and crimes as these. Nor will we, from this day on!
Since all appeals to the Federal government have been exhausted and the Governors and Legislatures of the Sovereign States have failed to repudiate the unlawful acts of the agent of the States (the federal government) - it is not only the right, but the duty, of the People to provide a remedy for the long train of abuses and usurpations which have been ignored.
In pursuance of the Constitution of these United States, with specific reference to the 9th and 10th Amendments thereto, the People retained the right of POSSES COMITATUS. In the formation of this Constitutional Republic, the COUNTY was - and remains the seat of power for the People. The county Sheriff is the ONLY LEGAL LAW ENFORCEMENT OFFICER IN THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA! The Sheriff can mobilize all men between the ages of 18 and 45 who are in good health and not in the Federal military service. Others can VOLUNTEER, women included. This body of citizens is the SHERIFF’S POSSE. All of them serve when called by the Sheriff. The title of this body is POSSE COMITATUS. The Sheriff’s Posse is the entire body of these inhabitants, who may be summoned by the Sheriff to assist him in preserving the public peace or in executing any lawful precept that is opposed. To clarify the matter for better understanding, some might say, “What if the local Sheriff does not wish a Posse?” The answer to that is simple. It is not his choice as to whether or not the Posse is organized and exists. It is only his choice as to whether or not he wishes to use it. Some Sheriffs might require convincing, but this is not too difficult a problem when the Posse is made up of good citizens who elect the Sheriff, and for whom he is a servant, not their master.
Since the Christian Church is the body of Christ on this earth and the Church is a PEOPLE, those who descend from Adam and Eve or otherwise known as the Caucasian, Government IS THE BUSINESS OF THE CHURCH - because the PEOPLE are the Church! And government is certainly the business of the People. Further, since the People known today as Christians are the People of the bible and are literal descendants of the God of this nation, Jesus Christ, known by His Name, Christ’s-sons or Christians, we retain the rights that were given by our God, Jesus Christ. One of these rights is to segregate ourselves from other people, any Act of any legislature or ruling of any Court notwithstanding. The Scripture Says:
“Now therefore hearken, O Israel (not the Jews but the Christians of today) unto the statutes and unto the judgments which I teach you, for to do them, that ye may live, and go in and possess the land which Yaveh the God of your fathers giveth you. (The NEW JERUSALEM, the United States of America). For what nation is there so great, who has God so nigh unto them, as Yaveh our God is in all things that we call upon Him for? For Yaveh your God is He that goeth with you, to fight for you against your enemies, to save you. Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers; for what fellowship has righteousness with unrighteousness and what communion has light with darkness? What concord has Christ with the devil or what part has he that believes, with an infidel? What agreement has the temple of God with idols? For ye are the temple of the living God; as God has said, I will dwell in them (Israel, the Christians of today and not the Jews) and walk in them and I will be their God and they shall be My people. Wherefore come out from among them and be ye SEPARATE saith Yaveh, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you and will be a Father unto you and ye shall be My sons and daughters saith Yaveh the Almighty God. (The Name Yaveh is the Hebrew Name of the God of the Universe, the God of Israel. The Name was translated in Greek as Ya-Zeus. Where the Greek Ya-Zeus appears, the English translation shows JESUS!)
We have heard that the Christian Posses of the United States will be formed in as many of the 3,000 Counties as possible. Anyone who opposes these Posses should be considered a “domestic enemy” of the United States. Since we do not have detailed information at this time, this report is information only. All Christians who wish to participate, will most likely be contacted in their local areas as each of the Posses will be local in jurisdiction and effort.
“Let every American, every lover of liberty, every well-wisher to his posterity, swear by the blood of the Revolution never to violate in the least particular the laws of the country, and never to tolerate their violation by others. As the Patriots of ’76 did to the support of the Declaration of Independence, so to the support of the Constitution and Laws let every American pledge his life, his property and his sacred honor. . . . . . .” abraham lincoln

The National Tax Rebellion Committee with address at P.O. Box 666, Clovis, California 93612 advises that new committees are being organized all across the land. They also have a headquarters located at 1843 East Belmont, Fresno, California 93701. The Information packets regarding the unlawful graduated Income Tax and the revolt against paying this tax can be obtained from either of the above addresses. They request a donation of $5.00 to pay for the kit and the mailing costs.
From all that we can gather to report, the National Tax Rebellion Committee will demand of Congress that the Constitution be preserved and that certain prior unconstitutional Acts of Congress be repealed. Briefly, this includes:
All prior Acts of the Congress wherein appropriations have been made for other than the domestic support of the government, must be repealed.
the above repeal includes all Multilateral International Organizations such as the U.N. and its Specialized Agencies, Inter-American Organizations, Foreign Aid, the World Bank along with the Bretton-Woods Agreement Act and all expenditures of the State Department for non-domestic purposes except for retention of Embassies in foreign nations.
Repeal of the Federal Reserve Act with all stock being delivered to the U.S. Treasury. The establishment of a United States Bank, replacing Federal Reserve Notes with U.S. Notes except for those in the hands of Banks. Providing for the commercial operation of Banks with limited interest on loans. The GAO to audit the F.R.S. transferring all assets to the U.S. Treasury.
Repeal of the Gold Reserve Act of 1934 with the Bureau of the Mint and the Interior Dept. arranging for financing to rehabilitate the Mining Industry in the U.S. Placing gold and silver produced in the U.S. on a free market basis. Redeeming U.S. Notes with gold and silver coin to U.S. citizens only with redemption to foreigners in surplus commodities of the U.S. through foreign trade at the option of the U.S. Congress.
Payment of all costs of government by the U.S. Treasury in U.S. Notes expended interest free. Removing the Federal government from all business and commercial enterprises not specifically authorized by the Constitution. - Repeal of the unlawful Social Security Act, replacing it with an Old Age Pension for eligible citizens for a period of 15 years, payable with U.S. Notes. Repeal of all Income Taxes and all Estate & Inheritance Taxes. Repeal of the Federal Deposit Insurance Act, the Export-Import Bank Act, the Federal Home Loan Bank Act, with all assets and functions to be performed by the Treasury under control of the Congress.
Congress does not have much time to do this, as the People are watching. Removal from office is next!
