Be it known to all courts, governments, and other parties, that I jsm, James Stuart Morris, am a natural free-born Sovereign, without subjects. I am neither subject to any entity anywhere, nor is any entity subject to me. My authority for this statement is the same as it is for all free Sovereigns everywhere: the age-old, timeless, and universal respect for the intrinsic rights, property, freedoms, and responsibilities of the Individual, created and gifted by the Creator or the Single Source, as I so believe it now to be.
I voluntarily choose to comply with the Creator's laws. I am not in any earthly jurisdiction, for I am not of subject status.
Consistent with the eternal tradition of natural common law, unless I have harmed or violated someone, or their property, I have commited no crime; and am therefore not subject to any penalty.
Thus, be it known to all, in the nature of UCC 1-207, that I reserve my natural common law right not to be compelled to perform under any contract that I did not enter into knowingly, voluntarily, and intentionally. And furthermore, I do not accept the liability associated with the compelled and pretended "benefit"* of any hidden or unrevealed contract or commercial agreement.
As such, the hidden or unrevealed contracts that supposedly create obligations to perform, for persons of subject status, are inapplicable to me, and are null and void. If I have participated in any of the supposed "benefits"* associated with these hidden contracts, I have done so under duress, for lack of any other practical alternative.
Any such participation does not constitute "acceptance" in contract law, because of the absence of full disclosure of any valid "offer," and voluntary consent without misrepresentation or coercion, under contract law. Without a valid voluntary offer and acceptance, knowingly entered into by both parties, there is no "meeting of the minds," and therefore no valid contract. Any supposed "contract" is therefore void, ab initio .
Typical examples of such compelled and pretended "benefits"* are:
The fact that a birth certificate was granted to me by a local hospital or government agency when I entered this world, is irrelevant to my Sovereignty. No status, high or low, can be assigned to another person through a piece of paper, without the recipient's full knowledge and consent. Therefore, such a piece of paper provides date and place information only. It indicates nothing about jurisdiction, nothing about property ownership, nothing about rights, and nothing about subject status. The only documents that can have any legal meaning, as it concerns my status in society, are those which I have signed as an adult, with full knowledge and consent, free from misrepresentation or coercion of any kind. My birth certificates (warehouse receipts) have been redeemed (accepted for value) in a UCC-1 filing, signed 2000-01-01, received and recorded by Washington State Department of Licensing - UCC on 2000-01-26, Filing Number 2000-026-0186 , and therefore none hold any claim to either my straw-man nor to my natural self.
The use of an identification number from a government agency.
The number normally assigned to persons of subject status, I use exceptionally, under duress, only because of the extreme inconvenience of operating without one in today's marketplace, where it is requested by banks, employers, lenders, and many other government agencies and businesses. My reason for using it is not because I wish to participate in the system, as I don't wish to participate. Let it be known that I use the number assigned to me for information only , if at all.
The use of fiat currency to discharge my debts.
I have used these only because in this country, there is no other widely recognized currency.
The use of a bank account, with my signature on the bank signature card.
If there is any hidden contract behind the bank signature card, my signature thereon gives no validity to it. The signature is only for verification of identity. I can be obligated to fufill no hidden or unrevealed contract whatsoever, due to the absence of full disclosure and voluntary consent.
Likewise, my use of the bank account thereof is due to the absence of a bank not associated with the central bank system. In general, people have been prevented from issuing their own currencies, and such prevention is in violation of the national constitution. Were there an alternative, I would be happy to use it. To not use any bank at all is impossible or very difficult, as everyone knows, in today's marketplace.
Past tax returns filed.
Any tax returns I may have filed in the past, were filed due to the dishonest atmosphere of fear and intimidation created by the tax collector and the local assessors' offices; not because there is any law requiring me to do so. Once I discovered the tax agencies are lying to the public, I have felt it is my responsible duty to society to terminate my voluntary participation. Because such returns were filed under Threat, Duress, and Coercion (TDC), and no two-way contract was ever signed with full disclosure, there is nothing in any past filing of returns that created any valid contract. Therefore, no legal obligation on my part was ever created.
The use of a driver's license.
As a free Sovereign, there is no legal requirement for me to have such a license, for travelling in my car, as technically, the unrevealed legal purpose of driver's licenses is commercial in nature. Since I don't carry passengers or freight for hire, there is no law requiring me to have a license to travel for my own pleasure and that of my family and friends. However, because of the lack of education of police officers on this matter, should I be stopped for any reason and found to be without a license, it is likely I would be harrassed. Therefore under duress, I carry a "license" to avoid extreme inconvenience.
State plates on my car.
Similarly, even though technically, my car does not fit the legal definition of a "motor vehicle", which is used for commercial purposes, nevertheless, I have registered it with the state and carry the state plates on it, because to have any other plates or no plates at all, causes me the risk of police officer harrassment and extreme inconvenience.
Declaration of citizenship.
Any document I may have ever signed, in which I answered "yes" to the question, "Are you a _______________________ citizen?" -- cannot be used to compromise my status as a Sovereign, nor obligate me to perform in any manner. This is because without full written disclosure of the definition and consequences of such supposed "citizenship," provided in a document bearing my signature given freely without misrepresentation or coercion, there can be no legally binding contract. I am a citizen of the Kingdom of God, with no allegiance to any earthly government, neutral to all.
Past voter registration.
Similarly, since no obligation to perform in any manner was ever revealed in print, as part of the requirements for the supposed "privilege" to vote for government officials, any such previous registration on my part cannot be legal evidence of any obligation to perform. Likewise, I have granted NO jurisdiction over me, to any political office.
Use of semantics.
There are some immature people with mental imbalances, such as the craving to dominate over other people, who masquerade as "government." Just because they alter definitions of words in the law books to their supposed advantage, doesn't mean we have to accept those definitions. The fact that they define the words "person," "address," "mail," "resident," "motor vehicle," "driving," "passenger," "employee," "income," and many others, in ways different from the common usage, so as to be associated with a subject or slave status, means nothing in real life.
Because the courts have become entangled in the game of semantics, be it known to all courts and all parties, that if I ever signed any document or spoke any words on record, using words defined by twists in the law books different from the common usage, there can be no effect whatsoever on my Sovereign status in society thereby, nor can there be created any obligation to perform in any manner, by the mere use of such words. Where the meaning in the common dictionary differs from the meaning in the law dictionary, it is the meaning in the common dictionary that prevails, because it is more trustworthy.
*Such compelled and supposed "benefits"* include, but are not limited to, the aforementioned typical examples. My use of such alleged "benefits"* is under duress only, and is with full reservation of all my common law rights. I have waived none of my intrinsic rights and freedoms by my use thereof. Furthermore, my use of such compelled "benifits" may be temporary, until better alternatives become available, practical, and widely recognized.
It is further relevant to this affidavit that any violation of my Rights, Freedom, or Property by the federal government, or any agent thereof, would be an illegal and unlawful excess, clearly outside the limited boundaries of federal jurisdiction. My understanding is that the jurisdiction of the U.S. federal government is defined by Article 1, Section 8, Clause 17 of the U.S. Constitution, quoted as follows:
"The Congress shall have the power . . . To exercise exclusive legislation in all cases whatsoever, over such a district (NOT EXCEEDING TEN MILES SQUARE) as may, by cession of particular states and the acceptance of Congress, become the seat of Government of the United States, [District of Columbia] and to exercise like authority over all places purchased by the consent of the legislature of the state in which the same shall be, for the Erection of Forts, Magazines, Arsenals, dock yards and other needful Buildings; And -- To make all laws which shall be necessary and proper for carrying into Execution the foregoing Powers . . ."
Article IV, Section 3, Clause 2:
"The Congress shall have the Power to dispose of and make all needful Rules and Regulations respecting the Territory or other Property belonging to the United States; and nothing in this Constitution shall be so construed as to Prejudice any claims of the United States, or of any particular State."
The definition of the "United States" being used here, then, is limited to its territories :
1) The District of Columbia
2) Commonwealth of Puerto Rico
3) U.S. Virgin Islands
5) American Samoa
6) Northern Mariana Islands
7) Trust Territory of the Pacific Islands
8) Military bases within the 50 states
9) Federal agencies within the 50 states
It does not include the 50 states themselves , as is confirmed by the following cites:
"We have in our political system a Government of the United States and a government of the several States. Each one of these governments is distinct from the others, and each has citizens of its own who owe it allegiance, and whose rights, within its jurisdiction, it must protect. The same person may be at the same time a citizen of the United States and a Citizen of a State, but his rights of citizenship under one of these governments will be different from those he has under the other." -- Slaughter House Cases United States vs. Cruikshank , 92 U.S. 542 (1875) "THE UNITED STATES GOVERNMENT IS A FOREIGN CORPORATION WITH RESPECT TO A STATE." Volume 20: Corpus Juris Sec. Section 1785: NY re: Merriam 36 N.E. 505 1441 S.Ct.1973, 41 L.Ed.287.
This is further confirmed by the following quote from the Internal Revenue Service:
Federal jurisdiction "includes the District of Columbia, the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands, Guam, and American Samoa." -- Internal Revenue Code Section 312(e)
In legal terminology, the word "includes" means "is limited to" .
When referring to this "District" United States, the Internal Revenue Code uses the term "WITHIN" the United States. When referring to the 50 States, the Internal Revenue Code uses the term "WITHOUT" the United States.
Dozens, perhaps hundreds, of court cases prove that federal jurisdiction is limited to the few federal territory areas above indicated. For example, in two Supreme Court cases, it was decided:
"The laws of Congress in respect to those matters do not extend into the territorial limits of the states, but have force only in the District of Columbia, and other places that are within the exclusive jurisdiction of the national government," -- Caha v. United States , 152 U.S., at 215
"We think a proper examination of this subject will show that the United States never held any municipal sovereignty, jurisdiction, or right of soil in and to the territory, of which Alabama or any of the new States were formed," -- 44 U.S., at 221
"[b]ecause, the United States have no constitutional capacity to exercise municipal jurisdiction, sovereignty, or eminent domain, within the limits of a State or elsewhere, except in the cases in which it is expressly granted," -- 44 U.S., at 223
"Alabama is therefore entitled to the sovereignty and jurisdiction over all the territory within her limits, subject to the common law," -- 44 U.S., at 228, 229; Pollard v. Hagan , 44 U.S. 221, 223, 228, 229
Likewise, Title 18 of the United States Code at section 7 specifies that the "territorial jurisdiction" of the United States extends only outside the boundaries of lands belonging to any of the 50 States.
Therefore, in addition to the fact that no unrevealed federal contract can obligate me to perform in any manner without my fully informed and uncoerced consent, likewise, no federal laws apply to me or have any jurisdiction over me. I hereby affirm that I do not reside or work in any federal territory of the District "United States", and that therefore no U.S. federal government laws have any authority over me.
My use of the United States Postal Service to receive mail is under Threat, Duress and Coersion per Federal Law which asserts that this service must be used rather than private commercial delivery services, and the receipt of mail addressed with two letter capitalized federal zone abbreviations (e.g. "HI") or numeric federal zone designations (Zip Codes, e.g. "96746-8712") does not place me in any federal zone nor federal jurisdiction, for despite repeated pleas to those who send mail to me, they have been brainwashed in compulsory state brainwashing centers ("Public Schools") and insist on cannonicalizing the format of my mailing location into a federal zone format, and in fact this process has been embodied in most computer software making it impossible to receive necessary communications at my mailing location rather than at a federal zone "address". This is further enforced under Threat, Duress and Coersion in that the local Postal Office refuses to deliver to "General Delivery" for longer than 30 days.
Thus, be it known to all, in the nature of UCC 1-207, that I reserve my natural common law right not to be compelled to perform under any contract of adhesion that I did not enter into knowingly, voluntarily, and intentionally. And furthermore, I do not accept the liability associated with the compelled and pretended "benefit"* of any hidden or unrevealed contract or commercial agreement, and specifically I refuse to be included in any federal zone. The location of my dwelling and life are in the de jure Kingdom of Hawai`i per the laws of man and per truth under international law, and in the Kingdom of God in higher truth.
As such, the hidden or unrevealed contracts that supposedly create obligations to perform, for persons of subject status, are inapplicable to me, and are null and void. If I have participated in any the supposed "benefits"* associated with these hidden contracts, I have done so under duress, for lack of any other practical alternative.
REVOCATION OF POWER OF ATTORNEY
Furthermore, I hereby revoke, rescind, and make void ab initio, all powers of attorney, in fact or otherwise, implied in law or otherwise, signed by me or anyone else, as it pertains to the government identification number previously assigned to me, as it pertains to my birth certificate, or any other licenses or certificates issued by any and all government or quasi-governmental entities, due to the use of various elements of fraud by said agencies to attempt to deprive me of my Sovereignty or property.
I hereby waive, cancel, repudiate, and refuse to knowingly accept any alleged "benefit"* or gratuity associated with any of the aforementioned licenses, numbers, or certificates. I do hereby revoke and rescind all powers of attorney, in fact or otherwise, signed by me or otherwise, implied in law or otherwise, with or without my consent or knowledge, as it pertains to any and all property, real or private, corporeal or incorporeal, obtained in the past, present, or future. I am the sole legal owner and possess alloidal title to any and all such property, including but not limited to my physical human body.
I affirm that all the foregoing is true and correct. I affirm that I am of lawful age and am competent to make this Affidavit. I hereby affix my own signature to all the affirmations in this entire document with explicit reservation of all my unalienable rights and my specific common law right not to be bound by any contract or obligation which I have not entered into knowingly, willingly, voluntarily, and without misrepresentation, duress, or coercion.
THE USE OF THE NOTARY BELOW IS FOR IDENTIFICATION, AND SUCH USE DOES NOT GRANT ANY JURISDICTION TO ANYONE.
