Upon This Land II: The Language of Land Ownership

 Previously: A Promised Land Forever

A few years ago McKay Platt gave a talk at a Remnant conference about what it really means to have your language confounded. The name of the talk is "Confusion in the Storm," and he tells a completely different version of the story of the tower of Babel than most of us have heard. 


Here is a snippet of the talk:
One of the earliest stories about language comes from the Bible; the story of Babel. As the Bible tells the story and as I was taught in Mormon Sunday School, everyone on earth went from speaking the same language to many languages all of a sudden. The way I was taught this story doesn't jive at all with what is known about historical linguistics. Languages don't pop into existence fully formed overnight, they morph slowly. 

Chances are you believed this story. The Book of Mormon suggests a very different interpretation to this old story.  

The second sentence of Moroni's title page introduction to the Book of Mormon recalls a time that the Jaredites came from the great tower and refers to the "confounding the language." 

"Confounding the language" is generally thought to be a miraculous event where all people speaking in a different tongue suddenly found themselves speaking unknown languages: Japanese, Swahili, Navajo, and Finnish causing them to scatter into common language groups. The text, however, does not say "suddenly every man was speaking a new language." It was the people not their language who were confounded. The prayer of the brother of Jared was that the Lord "will not confound us that we may not understand our words." 

 Please don't miss the point. First people become confounded and then they cannot understand their own words. That is the basic mechanism that the Book of Mormon teaches that for the confounding of language at the great Tower. It is how the Pure language of the First Fathers became defiled. (Transcript, PP. 1-2) 

To be confounded is to lose the meanings of words in a people's own language. McKay explains that we have even lost the meaning of the word confound itself. He opines that it does not mean to "confuse" as many assume today, but rather that "it's common meaning in prior centuries referred to mixing or blending."

Mixing or blending what? Truth and error

When the meaning of language begins to be lost society can become a breeding ground for tyrants and dictators.

What do I mean?

If you can subtly manipulate language by changing the meaning of certain words and creating other words and phrases that deceive people into entering contractual servitude without their knowledge, then you've created the perfect system of voluntary slavery. Better yet, you've created a culture where people freely enter into contractual slavery while believing that they are free. 

Such a system would give the manipulators of the language access to unlimited amounts of political power. In fact, such a system would create the perfect environment for mass mind control. One psychiatrist described it this way:

... he who dictates and formulates the words and phrases we use, he who is master of the press and radio, is master of the mind. (Joost Meerloo, The Rape of the Mind, p. 45)

It's the perfect ruse. And it has been done right here in the American promised land. The confounding of our English language has resulted in a loss of our rights, our land, and even our religion (through 5013c)... everything that Moroni held sacred and wrote upon the Title of Liberty.

However, this loss of rights is merely an illusion, because, like the Title of Liberty, they have always existed. The State has attempted to enslave you through false contracts, but it is nothing but fraud.  The good news is that you never lost your unalienable rights, including the land that has already been granted to you. Land and rights are a gift from God, which He plans to fully restore in the coming Zion. 

Dear readers, our descent into slavery has been written into our very language. Because of our education in public schools and government accredited universities, we never had a chance at learning the constitutional history of 18th century words. Those words had real meaning, and our progenitors understood them. They knew that after the Revolution they had become freemen, no more subject to the king of England. And they held their land in freehold, beholden to none. 

Before you read the rest of this post, I recommend you read or listen to McKay Platt's talk. Read it here or listen here. It will serve as a great primer for the abyss that you're about to descend into. 

To understand land language we must first define some common terms, and you will find their true meaning, well, not so common.

Legal v. Lawful

In our modern culture, many of us use the words legal and lawful interchangeably, but the truth is that these terms are very different, almost complete opposites. According to the Book of Mormon, there are several types of law--spiritual law, governmental law, religious law (such as the law of Moses), and even "laws" established by Gaddianton robbers. 

Law can be defined as a set of rules prescribed by an authority. It is derived from the Old English word lah, meaning ordinance, regulation, or even a right. From the Old Norse the word was lag, which meant "layer, measure, stroke," or "something laid down, that which is fixed." 

Legal comes from the Latin word legalis, which means "pertaining to law"... and lex, which means "an enactment, precept, regulation, principle, rule, formal proposition for a law, motion, bill, contract, arrangement, contrivance."

During the righteous times of the Nephites governmental law was always based upon the land. And it only punished crime, i.e., aggression committed against another via assault, theft, murder, or breach of contract. 

The Nephites practiced a form of common law that is very similar to what America was founded upon. Its simple terms are laid out in the following verse:
Now, there was no law against a man's belief, for it was strictly contrary to the commandments of God that there should be a law that should bring men onto unequal grounds... But if he murdered, he was punished unto death; and if he robbed, he was also punished; and if he stole, he was also punished; and if he committed adultery, he was also punished; yea, for all this wickedness they were punished, for there was a law that men should be judged according to their crimes. (Alma 16:2, RE)

In another scripture we are told that the Nephites also punished liars and adulterers according to the law. 

Why?

Because committing adultery and lying are false representation and breach of contract. Adultery is a crime against your family, because you are falsely representing your place in the family and violating your marriage contract. In the context of Alma 1:4 (RE), lying has reference to preachers who practiced priestcraft, but in Nephite culture lying could have also meant breach of contract. For instance, if a businessman tries to sell something that is not what he says it is. Or, if a contractor got paid for a job and never finished it. These examples might qualify someone for being punished as liars according to the law. 

The point here is that only crimes involving victims were punished by the Nephites. 

It is also interesting to note that Mormon uses the phrase "unequal grounds" to describe unjust laws. The word ground signifies land. Unequal ground is similar to waves in the ocean, and this begs the question: was Mormon hinting at maritime law? 

Nephi most certainly did when he described the great Whore of all the earth sitting upon the "many waters." Waters in scripture is imagery for masses of people, and the Harlot (Mystery Babylon) sitting upon those waters represents control. That control is manifested in our modern version of maritime law, also known as procedural, administrative, political, corporate, or admiralty law. 

The term legal in our modern society has reference only to rules, codes, ordinances, statutes, or corporate policy, none of which is actual law. These things are the color of law. Color of law is defined as the mere semblance, or appearance of law or right. Often, this appearance of law allows policy makers to act in defiance and violation of actual law. 

In other words, anything defined as legal is merely an illusion. We, as sovereign American citizens, are not subject to anything but common law. Like the Nephites, we should only be punished according to our crimes that involve a victim. Anything else falls into the category of legal.

Have you ever wondered why cops are called police officers? It is because they do not enforce actual law, they enforce corporate policy. An officer is a position in a corporation, one that is superior to you and I, but only in the dead/legal/fictional world. In the real world, a policeman has no authority over anyone, because well, he was not elected by the people. 

In common law history, a constable or sheriff was elected by the people to represent them in apprehending criminals, he was not an officer or a policeman, and he was only supposed to punish actual crime. If he did not do his job correctly or attempted to abuse his power, the people could fire him and elect another in his stead. When was the last time a policeman was voted out of a job? Police chiefs are appointed by the Mayor, not elected. (Even captain Moroni, the chief captain of the Nephites, was elected by the people.)

Have you ever wondered why leaders who hold public office are called politicians? It is because, like the policeman, they do not deal in law but in corporate policy. They occupy an office in the for-profit governmental corporation. They work for that organization and not for you. It has been this way in America since the Organic Act of 1871 when the U.S. government was incorporated. Before that time politicians were known as statesmen. Statesmen deal in common law, not corporate policy. 

Because all cities, states, and municipalities have been incorporated, there is not a single policy they enforce that you as a sovereign are subject to, and this includes all taxes; especially income and property taxes. Furthermore, you are only subject to corporate policy if you consent to be. They have hidden into the language a variety of words that when said in response to certain question/statements make you a consenting partner in a contract.

I'll just use one example. When an officer pulls you over and and asks you if you understand why he did so, he is offering you a contract. When you say the words, "yes, I understand," what you are really saying is that you stand under the authority of the officer and you are consenting to whatever punitive action he is about to slap you with. 

When you show him your driver's license and he asks if the picture on it is you, if you say yes then what you are saying is that you are a dead corporation on a piece of plastic. Once you consent to being a dead corporation then you become subject to maritime law and corporate policy. Just the fact that you applied for and obtained a driver’s license means that you have already consented to be a slave to the State.

(As an aside I'm not suggesting that you get rid of your driver's license and try to become a state national or sovereign citizen. Some people have successfully done this but it takes years of research and a thorough understanding of the law. My purpose here is to merely inform and educate you about things you may have not known about. Someday soon God will make everyone sovereign citizens because He will destroy all the power structures that keep us slaves.)

The image on your driver's license is most definitely not you. You are a flesh and blood man or woman. The image on your license is only an image, and the name on the card is not your real name. It appears in all caps, which, according to Roman military law, means you have no status at all. Your real name is your Christian name, which is a combination of upper and lower case letters. Your Christian name describes the real flesh-and-blood you, the sovereign who only answers to the highest judge in the land, God Himself.

Your name appears in all caps on every legal document they have created for you, including: birth certificates, social security cards, loan documents, bank statements, tax returns, student loans, and even hospital tags. 

In the Roman empire this was known as capitus diminutio, or the loss of a man or woman's civil status in Roman society. If all the letters of the name were capitalized, then you had no status at all. Even the word capital is interesting in this context, in economic terms it simply refers to "those durable produced goods that in turn are used as productive units for further production of goods and services." 

Having a name with all caps literally means that you, my friends, are capital goods. You are the "productive units" that are used to produce other goods and services. In their fictional-corporate-world they own your labor; your labor is the capital good. It is also used as surety at the IMF (International Monetary Fund) for the national debt (the IMF has the original copy of your birth certificate), and it is bought and sold on the stock exchange. That is why you've heard the phrase that if you have good genes you come from "good stock." We are the livestock. We are human capital

Welcome to modern slavery. 

Now, I don't want to veer to far off on the word plays of maritime law, I've already written a fairly comprehensive piece on that subject that you can read here

But there are still a few more terms to define that have to do with the subject of this series. Before we get into these other familiar words there is a deeper aspect to legal and lawful that I need to share with you. I learned these definitions from Ron Gibson, a lawyer (not an attorney), who is an expert on land patents and who teaches seminars on the step-by-step process of how to claim them (more on Ron later). This is how he defines legal and lawful:

Legal: people on the water controlled by service corporations.

Lawful: men and women on the land

Now think about this: you can't move around on the water without assistance. You need some kind of boat or floating device to do so, otherwise you drown. But on the land you can freely move about and do as you please. On the water you are subject to others providing you the service of shipping. In exchange for this service you are granted certain privileges and benefits by the captain of the ship. When you accept those "rights" from the captain you consent to becoming his cargo, which means he can sell or trade you at his leisure. At that point your rights become alienable.  

Are you beginning to grasp the direness of your awful situation? 

You are only free as a flesh-and-blood man or woman on the land. That's it... there is no other way to be free. It is Jesus Christ, and no other being, that grants you that land and freedom. The Book of Mormon testifies of this truth. 

Now let's get one thing straight: rights do not come from government or men. Rights come from God, the Creator. He has endowed you with unalienable (unencumbered) rights and given you the land resting on the crust of the earth. The purpose of its very creation is to be tilled and worked by you, the husbandman. And it was designed to yield an abundance of food and goods. 

Like you, the land is alive, it is bursting with embryonic molecules that are just waiting to spring into commodities. All it needs is your hands to stir up its elements and enzymes.  

Do you realize that if every family were allowed to take ownership of the land freely granted to them by God then it would finally be possible to have "no poor among us"?

Zion requires land ownership. Any conversation about Zion is meaningless without a conversation about land. There has to be a gathering place. There has to be a land of Zion. 

One purpose of Zion is to restore the earth back to the condition that God intended for it when He created it. To do that requires hard work and labor on the land. And the earth will reward those who work it and share that abundance with others. 

Once we learn the basics of sharing and elevating the poor, then God will finally be free to reveal to us an inexhaustible amount of heavenly knowledge, or in other words, "all things." There is surely no limit to the concept of "all." 

It really is that simple. There is nothing mystical or abstract about Zion. It is just freedom, hard work, land, and sharing with and loving others, none of which requires a state, a government, an organized religion, or a corporation. 

We won't need to control each other by forming a state, and we won't need to centralize spiritual knowledge by forming an organized religion. Let people come and believe what they will. Let people come and work their land as they please, without licenses, permits, property taxes, or any other liens or encumbrances. 

Land and freedom are the preparatory requirements for Zion. And we already know all about them. We have three witnesses of the relationship between land and freedom right before us. We have the Old Testament, the Book of Mormon, and the foundational and constitutional history of America. 

Three witnesses that testify of the conditions necessary to establish Zion. 

Before we get further into Ron Gibson (a true servant of God) and his work on land patents, we've got to explore a little more of this language of land ownership as it applied to Americans before the Civil War and the incorporation of the federal government in 1871. 

There is quite a history to be told here, a history of how Americans once claimed their land and how it was subsequently lost.. 

Or was it? 

This Land is Our Land

As many of you know I live in Idaho, and I love it here. There are endless acres of wide open spaces teeming with mountains and wildlife. The Snake River Valley is a vast expanse of farmland and desert, loaded with sagebrush, lava rock, and man-made irrigation systems. Some cartographers have made the claim that if you flatten all the mountains in Idaho it would be bigger than Texas. 

I don't know if that is true.

But when you drive through the open desert plain you can't help but be mesmerized by its pure vastness. When you see wildflowers moving in unison in a gentle mountain breeze, or the tumble weed determinately moving toward the next cattle fence it will lodge itself in, or the majestic elk quietly grazing on an alpine slope... when you hear the comforting lullaby of a mountain stream, or gaze upon the soft red-orange glow of the next sunset over the Rocky Mountains, when you sense that the grove of Aspen trees seem to be one living organism, or behold the view of a seemingly endless range of mountains from the vantage point of a 10K foot-high peak, you can't help but wonder in awe at what God has created for us. 

When you see the tops of the wild grasses in late summer, whipping, bending, almost dancing in the wind, amidst a chorus of millions of others, the mind quiets down, and the realization sets in that God knows and numbers each of those grasses. He knows the flowers, the animals, the trees, even the rocks and the very sands that erode off of them. Not a leaf falls, a stream bubbles, a fish jumps, nor an insect scampers without His knowledge. And if He knows the indescribable detail of all these creations, then of course He knows you, intimately. 

He has given you the land and everything on it. This land is indeed ours. Any child can feel that as they gaze into a forest that is begging for them to explore it. Or a lake that is inviting a refreshing swim. Or a mountain that is beckoning to be climbed. Our connection to the land is written into our very hearts. 

Our American progenitors knew and understood their connection to the land, and fought a war to free themselves from the encumbrances of the king of England. Those encumbrances included taxes, duties, the forced quartering of British troops, and perpetual rents on colonial lands. The king was the only sovereign and owned all the land under the control of the British empire. 

He would allow barons to run the land and charge rents or fees to farmers, but ultimately he was the true landlord. For any reason and and at any time he could change his mind and take the land away from any baron or nobleman. But it was in his best interest to keep the land in productive use so he could collect taxes on those increases. 

The king gifted these lands to the barons and nobles, and those gifts were known as fiefs, which carries the same meaning as feud. According to Blackstone, a feud is described as "an estate in land held of a superior on the condition of rendering him services" (see p. 56 of Ron Gibson's book, What You Need to Know About Land Patents).

Ron explains this concept a little further:
It [a feud] is also described as an inheritable right to the use and occupation of lands, held on condition of rendering services to the lord or proprietor, who himself retains the ownership of the lands, {Blacks Law Dictionary, 4th Edition, p. 748 (1968.} Thus, the people had land they occupied, devised, inherited, alienated, or disposed of as they saw fit, so long as they remained in favor with the King. {F.L. Ganshof, Feudalism, p. 113 (1967)}. (What You Need to Know About Land Patents, p. 56)

This system was known as feudal tenure. It was essentially a pyramid scheme in land disbursement. The baron who received the initial land gift from the king was free to impart, or subdivide, his land to other vassals. A vassal is defined as “a person who held land from a feudal lord and received protection in exchange for homage and allegiance; a bondman or slave, a subordinate or dependent."

The feudal lords answered directly to the king and they were called "tenants." Fiefs who worked the land under them paid fees to the feudal lords in exchange for protection and the right to use the land. This privilege was inheritable as long as they remained under the favor of the lord. Similarly, the baron or nobleman enjoyed the same privilege under the king as long as they remained in his favor. The entire system was a hierarchical chain of command where a lord or vassal could lose everything on the whims of a superior. 

The size of the estates of the fiefs or vassals under the feudal lords widely varied just as they do today. Some lived on large estates and others on little acreage. The fiefs were reminiscent of today's middle class. They paid homage to the lords, who in return paid homage to the king. At the bottom of the pyramid were the serfs or villains. 

The word villain originally meant a person who had no rights. The Old English definition of villain was a "base or low-born rustic," in Old French it meant "peasant, farmer, commoner, churl, yokel."

Villains were employed by the fiefs as low wage workers. Ron explains that they "were recognized as nothing more than real property." Like many today that live in slums and are on the streets, they eked out a miserable existence in a constant struggle for survival. To put this in a modern perspective, those who work for wages from an employer labor three months out of the year just to pay their federal and state income taxes. The middle class who own more land and make "profits" instead of wages, still have to pay tribute to modern fiefs to retain the privilege of working their lands or businesses. This tribute is known today as property tax, corporate income tax and capital gains tax. 

Modern fiefs are incorporated governments such as cities, municipalities, counties, and states. These are fictional entities to which we all pay fees. The modern word fee is a variant of the word fief. Its original meaning can be traced to the Old English word feoh, which means, and be prepared to be shocked:

...livestock, cattle; movable property; possessions in livestock, goods or money; riches, wealth; money as a means of exchange or payment. (Online Etymology Dictionary)

You pay fees to incorporated entities because you are nothing more than human cattle, or chattel. We live in a modern system of chattel slavery... in which we, the slaves, believe that we are free. 

The entire system has been flipped upon its head. 

The power to govern is a right inherent in the people, not kings or magistrates. Read these words from the Declaration of Independence and let them sink in:

... 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...

We the People are the sovereigns, not a government that was created by us, which means that We the People, not the government, are the true owners of the land.

What Jefferson is describing is common law based upon the Bible. The origins of common law can be traced back to 11th century England, before William the Conqueror introduced the feudal system. When England was conquered by this tyrant in 1066 A.D., all land was commandeered by the king. Prior to that time, all lands in England were allodial, meaning, "owing to no one, nor to any lord or superior." 

After close to two centuries under the new feudal system, a group of 25 barons, who had studied the history of the land ownership of their ancestors, pressured King John to restore some of the rights they had lost. The result was the Magna Carta of 1215, a document that became the basis for common law. 

Under Magna Carta the barons would retain some of their rights and powers over their lands, but would still recognize the king as the "lord paramount." According to Ron Gibson, several sections of the charter gave: 

...the most powerful barons letters of patent... with the single goal of protecting the 'landowner' and helping him retain possession of the land, acquired in the service of the King, from unjust seizures or improper debts. The barons attempted these goals with the intention of securing property to pass to their heirs. (Land Patents, p. 72)

But it was short lived. King John died in 1216 A.D., just one year after signing the Magna Carta. The document was forgotten and the feudal system remained in force. Those humble Gentiles who came to America in the early 1600s were looking for two things: religious freedom and the right to own unencumbered land. However, the king still owned the territory in the colonies, where "American versions of barons sought to retain large tracts of land" (Ibid, p. 73).

According to Ron, the American feudal system operated as follows:

... the feudal barons in the colonies could dictate who farmed their land, how their land was to be divided, and to a certain extent to whom the land should pass. But, just as the original barons discovered, this power was premised in part of the performance of duties for the king. (Ibid, p. 73) 

The American Revolution was not fought just over taxes, it was fought for the right to own unencumbered land. This part of American history has been whitewashed and erased. The Establishment does NOT want you to know this, because if Americans wake up to this fact, the entire system of maritime law falls on its face.

After winning the war and securing those lands away from the king, "the un-appropriated lands... passed, not to the people of the colony or state within those limits they were situated, but to the whole people... (p. 74).

We the People, or the "whole people" as Ron opines, had the right to distribute those lands as they saw fit, "as joint tenants in the sovereignty." The way they chose to distribute the land was written into the U.S. Constitution. There was an office established in the newly formed government called the General Land Office, which issued Land Patents to those who applied for them. The land was not for sale. It was free.

The portion of the U.S. Constitution dealing with land disposal is Article IV, Section 3, Clause 2:

The Congress shall have 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 Congress was the direct representatives of the sovereign people, who gave the government the power in the first place. It was them who decided how to distribute the land, at least that is how it was supposed to go. It worked for a while, and between the time of the Revolution and the Civil War Americans enjoyed pure allodial title to their lands.  

Government was a contract between sovereigns to protect each other in their rights, nothing more. It soon became corrupted and taken over by Gaddiantons, some of which were early Founding Fathers like Alexander Hamilton, I wrote about that here

But the idea of government was, as Jefferson stated, "to secure these Rights" that were already granted by God. Land was a big part of that equation according to this 1863 court case:

The American people, before developing a properly functioning stable government, developed a stable system of land ownership, whereby the people owned their land absolutely and in a manner similar to the king in common-law England. (Wallace v. Harmstead, 44 Pa. 492 (1863), referenced in Land Patents, p. 76) 

These humble Gentiles had studied the Bible and had an understanding of the importance of the land that God had given to the Israelites. In fact, the republic set up by our Founder's was reminiscent of the republic set up by Moses. 

Much of the U.S. Constitution was based upon the book of Deuteronomy. That book of scripture was a constitution given to the Israelites just before they were finally allowed to possess and occupy the promised land. I don't have the space to get into the specifics but if you want to learn more about it I highly recommend this article written by Daniel J. Elazar

The Israelite constitution in Deuteronomy is reminiscent of the Book of Mormon decrees upon the promised land. There was a covenant offered that granted the Israelites the land with certain stipulations. These are repeated all throughout the book of Deuteronomy. Here is just one example:

Now therefore listen, O Israel, unto the statutes and judgments which I teach you, in order to do them, that you may live, and go in and possess the land which the Lord God of your fathers give you. You shall not add unto the word which I command you, neither shall you diminish anything from it, that you may keep the commandments of the Lord your God which I command you. (Deuteronomy 2:1, RE) 

The statutes and judgements referenced here are the ins and outs of the law of the land; the common law that God commanded the Israelites to base their nation on. It was a system of judges not unlike the reign of the judges set up by Mosiah. In an earlier post I pointed out that the names Moses and Mosiah share the same meaning. It bears repeating here: 

Do you think it is a coincidence that Moses and Mosiah have the same first three letters in their names? Well I looked up what the word mos means in Latin and this is what I found. The "Latin word mos comes from Proto-Indo-European *m-et-", and it means precept, law, quality, nature mode, fashion, conduct, behavior, character, humor, self-will, caprice, manner, custom, way, usage, practice, and habit. What do all these words have in common? Self-government. (The Constitution of No Authority)

Now, notice that the pronouncement in Deuteronomy above proscribes the Israelites from adding to or diminishing from the law given to them. You will notice the same language in this revelation given to Joseph Smith referencing the U.S. Constitution: 

And now verily I say unto you concerning the laws of the land, it is my will that my people should observe to do all things whatsoever I command them, and that law of the land which is constitutional, supporting the principles of freedom in maintaining rights and privileges belonging to all mankind, is justifiable before me; therefore, I, the Lord, justify you and your brethren of my church in befriending that law which is the constitutional law of the land. And as pertaining to the law of man, whatever is more or less than this comes of evil. I, the Lord your God, make you free; therefore you are free indeed, and the law also makes you free. (T&C 98:2, RE, emphasis added)

So here we have two witnesses of the law of the land given in scripture. The Book of Mormon is the third witness with its many references to the promised land of America and the decrees upon it. This began with the brother of Jared, who is the first post-diluvian to be led to America. Notice the language, it is similar to what God told the Israelites in Deuteronomy:

And the Lord would not suffer that they should stop beyond the sea in the wilderness, but he would that they should come forth even unto the land of promise, which was choice above all other lands, which the Lord God had preserved for a righteous people. And he had sworn in his wrath unto the brother of Jared that whoso should possess this land of promise, from that time henceforth and for ever should serve him, the true and only God, or they should be swept off when the fulness of his wrath should come upon them. (Ether 1:6, RE, emphasis added)

Did you catch the phrase "from that time henceforth and for ever"? That means that when Zion eventually comes, the same promises and decrees will remain upon this land. We will be under the same obligations as the Jaredites, the Nephites, and the Gentiles who possessed this land before us. 

When God says forever, He means it, and part of those promises entail gifting us the land. That means allodial title with no encumbrances by any governmental body or organization. And it means that every individual family will be granted a portion of land, for free, without any obligation to pay any property taxes on it. Our only sovereign landlord will be God Himself, who will require that you voluntarily share your abundance with the poor.  

In Part III, I'm going to go deeper into Ron Gibson's books and the history of land patents, but before I end this post there are still a few more terms to define, and I think that you'll be surprised to learn that these words you are very familiar with DO NOT mean what you thought they did.

Words that Destroy Rights

In our modern society, all words that have to do with property or real estate have nothing to do with rights and everything to do with equitable interest. In other words, everything is for sale, and everything is alienable. And the money we use to buy and sell the land that God has already given us has no value. It is play money, an illusion, and has only the appearance of value.

Let's start with the basics: real estate is NOT land. Real estate comprises everything that is built on or permanently affixed to the land. All forms of title (except allodial title) to land or real estate in our modern society only convey equitable interest and not sovereign ownership. According to Ron, the word equity is supposed to mean "justice as administered according to fairness," however, it is more often used today as a term to measure how much the price of homes and other commodities have risen since we purchased them.

Home equity is therefore an allusion. The increased "value" of your home has been artificially created by those who really own it. You, as a person (persona) with a diminished status, do not own anything. In fact, your body is also owned by those who own your home. To them you are a corporation, which Ron defines as "an artificial person or legal entity." As such an entity you cannot own anything independent of the incorporated State. You cannot convey ownership or transfer title without their permission. 

First of all, when you purchase a home with a loan from a bank you are incurring a mortgage. A mortgage is defined by Ron as "the lending of monies for the purchase of property by a creditor in exchange for the payment of a debt." A creditor doesn't actually lend you anything because fiat currency is not real, it has no value outside of the fictional world. The word mortgage comes from the Old French word morgage, or mort gaige, which literally means "dead pledge." 

According to Ron, "all land held not in allodial title has been hypothecated to the Federal Reserve Bank, as collateral against a federal debt that cannot be paid." The word hypothecate is a verb and means "to pledge (property) to another as security without transferring possession of title; mortgage." 

So what exactly is a mortgage, or dead pledge? For starters it is NOT a loan. A bank has no authority to loan you a single penny, and the fact that it claims to do so is a fraud. When you apply (beg) for a home loan and you get approved you are issued a promissory note, which we think is a promise to pay. But a promissory note is just a legal instrument that the government uses to draw money on your social security account, which is worth untold millions or in some cases billions of dollars. 

Yes, your value as a slave asset to the powers that be is based upon your projected future labor output throughout your life. Some are worth more than others. That money belongs to you, but because you're a slave, the government has stolen it. 

According to Ron, when the promissory note has been created, it sits for three days and then one of two things happen: one, it is cashed by the bank and given to the title company to pay off the seller of the home, or two it is digitized and monetized, rated by Dun and Bradstreet, and sold to multiple buyers, which can potentially number in the thousands.

The money for the mortgage does not come from a bank, it comes from the IMF, straight out of your social security account. It was yours to begin with. It is used to discharge a debt to a seller who didn't own the property to a buyer (you) who will never own the property. The IMF profits off of your money and then makes you pay it back to a bank with interest. A bank that never risked one penny to give you the loan. 

When someone defaults on their mortgage and goes into foreclosure the bank evicts them from the property. But this is actually an illegal act by the bank, because only the "owner" of the mortgage can file for foreclosure. In most cases, it is impossible to hunt down who owns your mortgage, especially if there are multiple partners. The bank is not the owner of the mortgage and is committing fraud when it attempts to evict a tenant. 

See the following video where Ron talks about these concepts, the mortgage stuff begins at the 30-minute mark:



And the IMF (International Monetary Fund) is an agency of the United Nations, the main organization that has shut off large percentages of all Western lands in the U.S.  

We live in the most sophisticated system of slavery that has even been concocted. And to make matters worse, the government (the king) also owns all the land. They stole the land from the people and are using it as collateral against our national debt. A debt owed to us, the people themselves. In Part III I will go further into the history of how that land was stolen from us. 

So, the government has taken two things that God has freely given you: the right to own the land and the right to own your own labor. Is this not the true definition of usury, an abomination proscribed by God in the Old Testament? We know the definition of usury as to charge excessive or exorbitant interest on money lent. But it comes from the Latin word usus which means to enjoy or use. It literally means to use another human being. 

Another word for that is slavery. 

Now let's take it a step further. Let's say you actually pay your mortgage off. You labor for thirty years to satisfy the lien against your home. A lien that was made up out of nothing (dead pledge). To reward you for this achievement the bank will issue you a warranty deed, which you think means that you own a free and clear title to your home. But little did you know that warranty deeds do not convey title, they only convey equitable interest. 

According to Ron, a deed is a trust instrument, which falls under the category of negotiable instruments. The Negotiable Instruments Act was passed in 1881, just ten years after the United States federal government was incorporated (by the way, Ron defines "federal" as corporate). The Negotiable Instruments Act lays out the rules of transferring payment via the use of promissory notes, cheques, and bills of exchange. 

The problem is these rules are based upon maritime or corporate law. Corporate law only deals with fictitious persons, not flesh and blood men and women. One of the corporate concepts laid out in the Negotiable Instruments Act and later in the Uniform Commercial Code is something called suretyship. When a fictitious person boards the surety ship they have left land and entered the sea. Surety is defined as follows:
A party who signs a negotiable instrument for the purpose of incurring liability on the instrument without being a direct beneficiary of the value given for the instrument. 

Through contract we have all agreed to being surety for the national debt, a debt owed to us, the very slaves that perform the productive labor that keeps the machine going. Most of us have no idea we have consented to this contract. The only real asset that we can pledge as surety is our future labor, which means we are at best indentured servants and at worst full-on slaves. 

A mortgage is nothing but a 30-year contract to pledge our labor as surety for the national debt, because the money "lent" to us by a bank has no real value. You cannot pay a bill with dollar bills. Your FRN (Federal Reserve Note) dollars will not satisfy any debt, this currency will only discharge the debt to another person (and it has been this way since 1933).  

At the other end of that tunnel is the warranty deed, the certificate we receive when we "pay off" the mortgage. But in the real world no gold or silver (gold and silver is still the only lawful money according to the Constitution) was exchanged, so you paid off literally nothing.

The warranty deed will only convey or transfer equitable interest, meaning that you merely have an interest in the fake value of the property. This means that the possession of a warranty deed will NEVER make you the owner of the property, but merely an interested party, tenant, or renter. 

According to Ron:

...if the deed is recorded at the County Recorders office, then the property or real estate is the trust property of the State... A "Warranty Deed" or other types of deeds does pass an interest on the land, (Not Title) admits consideration, bargain, and sells and conveys the appurtenances and warrants the performance of the a/the contract. (Land Patents, p. 34)

A warranty deed is NOT a title. 

Can you see why God included the account of the Title of Liberty in the Book of Mormon? He is trying to tell you something. He is granting you real (allodial) title to the promised land without encumbrances from other men. The only stipulations on the land are laid out in scripture and are decreed by Him, the only Landlord we answer to.

Another definition of deed is "act or transaction," and another definition of title is "a person's rank." Do you see the difference? A deed means you can be acted upon, a title means that you are the actor. A title makes you a king or a queen. Kings and queens are sovereign and answer to no one but God. 

The Book of Mormon describes sovereigns as those who desire to be accountable for their own "sins and iniquities." Unless you own your body, your land, and your property, you cannot be a steward and be accountable. Being accountable is the true definition of moral agency. Do you see how Satan has destroyed agency in our modern world? 

This post is getting long, and there is so much more to cover. But before I end I want to clarify a few more terms. 

Before the Civil War Americans were not known as voters, they were known as electors. A registered voter casts a vote in a private booth, an elector casts his vote in public. An election is only lawful if it is settled via public vote. We have not had a true election in this nation since 1860. Lincoln was the last president to be elected. All subsequent presidents have been appointed, just like police chiefs are appointed. This is why it is laughable that we argue over election fraud because it is all been fraud since 1860. And remember, fraud vitiates everything. 

The Book of Mormon teaches us about public voting, it refers to it as "the voice of the people." A voice is something that is heard. No one hears our voice when we vote in a private booth, just like no one hears a tree that falls down in uninhabited woods. Here is an example of how boisterous elections were in Nephite society:

And it came to pass that the people assembled themselves throughout all the land, every man according to his mind, whether it were for or against Amlici, in separate bodies, having much dispute and wonderful contentions one with another. And thus they did assemble themselves together to cast in their voices concerning the matter... (Alma 1:9, RE, emphasis added)

They did not cast in their votes, they cast in their voices. Do you see the difference? Our American progenitors did the same. They used their voices to elect government officials. 

But wait, weren't women discriminated against because they were not allowed to vote? No, a woman, the queen of her household, cast in her voice along with her husband. The two of them were one flesh, and as such they cast in one voice. Just like the Father and the Mother spoke in one voice when they declared that They created man in Their own image and likeness. Mankind has reference to both men and women.  

Do you see how we have flipped everything around on its head? 

Before we move on there is one more thing to clarify regarding modern voting. When we register to vote we are in fact declaring ourselves as commodities of the State. The word register comes from the old English word registrar, which literally meant an accounting of the king's fleet of naval ships. It was an accounting of the king's property. When we register to do anything in our society we are declaring ourselves as property of the State. It is a contract that we have to apply for. And the word apply means to beg or grovel at the feet of a superior (think about that next time you're filling out an application for some service from the State). 

The last word we need to define before closing is sovereignty. There is a lot of confusion surrounding that word. We know it as one who holds "supreme authority" in a geographical area, like a king or a prince. In a republic, the people are supposed to be joint sovereigns, holding all power in common. 

But what does it really mean? 

Sovereignty is a condition of the Elohim, the family of Gods who create the ever-expanding universe. Our God is Jesus Christ, and He enjoys absolute sovereignty over us and the earth He created. This is why He is called the King of kings. He will assume that sovereign condition of King when He returns at His second coming. 

Sovereignty therefore, has more to do with creative powers than authority over governments. In fact, the law of sovereignty is that one can only have jurisdiction over that which one creates. This definition comes from Ron Gibson's book, who further elucidates on the concept as follows:

Sovereignty, and thus the right of property, resides in the people. There is a natural order of things in the universe. Our Creator created man. Man formed or established the state (often incorrectly "the government") for the protection of himself and his property. Everything in the natural order of things is subservient to the being who created it. There can be no exceptions. In these United States, both the state and federal entities were created by the People. The People themselves retained "sovereignty" under the true Sovereign, our Creator, even though they delegated some of their power to their creatures for the purpose of protecting their rights. (Land Patents, p. 109)  

Sovereignty is a facet of the law of creation. If you create something you become the sovereign over it. The Luciferians who run this world have found a way around this law, it is called fiction. They simply "create" a fictional world with fictional persons who use fictional money who live in a fictional sea. They build fictional ships to carry the fictional persons around in the fictional sea, such as the citizen-ship, the friend-ship, the sportsman-ship, the statesman-ship, the bipartisan-ship, and on and on and on. 

They get the fictional persons to board the fictional ships by offering them a contract: "we will take you here if you board our ship, but you have to consent to our corporate rules." 

There is another unwritten law in the universe that says that you can give up your sovereignty if you consent to do so. Lucifer loves this law because this is how he can get you to give up your agency. He loves to make a deal with you, so he uses language to trick you into entering into contract with the fictional world. But the entire system is based upon fraud, and once you wake up and unplug yourself from the Matrix, you become free. Once you realize that you are a creative being that came from the bosom of the living God of Heaven, you can simply tell Lucifer that you reject his contracts and his fictional world. You can then regain your status as a sovereign being. 

It is all an illusion. But let's face it. Slavery is comfortable. Many people enjoy its carnal security. They don't want to think for themselves or take responsibility for their actions. They are not interested in being moral agents unto themselves. They want someone else to do it for them. And hence, they choose slavery. 

The Book of Mormon also testifies to this fact.

King Mosiah, another one of God's servants, who, like Moses, taught his people to be independent, used a word we are familiar with when he was describing to his people the conditions that bring God's judgments on society. 

That word was iniquity

Do we really know what it means? In scripture it is often used in conjunction with the word sin, but it does not mean the same thing. Sin is missing the mark, it simply means that we have shot at a target and missed the bullseye. To repent of sin we simply notch another arrow and ask God to help us hit the target. It is very personal, and the only way to overcome it is to turn and face God, acknowledging our foolishness and weaknesses before Him, and imploring Him to apply the atoning blood of Jesus Christ to our souls.  

So what is iniquity? According to the online etymology dictionary it means "hostility, malevolence..., an unfavorable situation..., unequalness, unevenness..., unfavorableness, unfairness, injustice..."

In other words, inequality

Iniquity therefore is a societal ill. It is present when there is any inequality or injustice that creeps into the law. King Mosiah also described it as people not taking responsibility for their own actions and letting the government (the king) take accountability for them. Here is what Mosiah said to his people:

And if the time cometh that the voice of the people doth choose iniquity, then is the time that the judgments of God will come upon you. Yea, then is the time he will visit you with great destruction, even as he has hitherto visited this land...

And I commanded you to do these things [appoint judges], that ye have no king, that if these people commit sins and iniquities, they shall be answered upon their own heads. For behold, I say unto you, the sins of many people have been caused by the iniquities of their kings; therefore their iniquities are answered upon the heads of their kings. (Mosiah 13:7, RE, emphasis added)

Did you catch that? Kings, i.e., governments, cause people to commit iniquity because of unjust laws. People embrace and follow the laws without researching them or finding out if they are in fact just. They blindly follow and then jeer and sneer at law "breakers" who stand up to tyranny. In our modern society words like tax protester, tax evader, or sovereign citizen have become pejoratives, as if those who take part in these activities are criminals. Yet the real criminals are the Gaddiantons in government who enacted the unjust laws in the first place. 

Now, in case we missed Mosiah's point, in the next breath he explains to his people exactly what he is talking about so there can be no mistaking. He uses the word unequality, or, as we say it today, inequality, or inequity. He is trying to tell you what iniquity really means. He is a Moses type fulfilling his duty to teach his people, and us, what it really means to be free and independent. Read his words carefully:

And now I desire that this unequality should be no more in this land, especially among this my people. But I desire that this land be a land of liberty, and every man may enjoy his rights and privileges alike, so long as the Lord sees fit that we may live and inherit the land... (Mosiah 13:8, RE)

Liberty, rights and privileges, iniquity and unequality... are all based upon the land. Notice that Mosiah mentioned land twice in the verse above. It is because of iniquity that our land has been taken away from us. This has created a situation where we have lost our rights and privileges and where there is a giant wedge between the rich and the poor.

In our modern society, only the upper-middle and wealthy classes can afford to buy land (now incorrectly labeled as "real estate"), while the poor live in ghettos and slums. Land was never supposed to be for sale. It was a gift from God to all His people. If the poor were allowed to settle their God-given land they could easily grow their own food, and wouldn't be dependent on government welfare programs for subsistence. 

The middle and upper classes are not much better off. They are still slaves, because if they do not pay their rents on their lands, homes, vehicles, labor, and profits, the king [government] will take away everything they have and throw them in prison. 

We have all embraced laws that are causing us to commit iniquity. And that iniquity is ripening. In April of 2024, the other half of the giant X over America will be manifested to us in the next American solar eclipse. In my opinion, this signals the beginning of the sweeping off warned of in the Book of Mormon. 

We need to ask ourselves the following question: has the time come when the voice of our people have chosen iniquity? 

We have lost our land, we have lost our Constitutional rights, and we live in a military dictatorship in which our unelected, de facto president can pass any law he wishes by signing an executive order. Our justice system serves only the government and its Gaddiantons, and we have become mere persons of diminished status in society. Our laws have become fiction, and through our consent we have chosen to be slaves in a fictitious system. 

God does not want to destroy us, but real justice must prevail. He must restore the law of the land that makes men and women free. He must restore the right of land ownership to the people, especially the poor. 

Mosiah explained one more critically important concept. He gave us the true definition of equality. Equality does not mean that everyone is forced to be equal through socialism/wokism. Equality, according to Mosiah, means that "every man should have an equal chance throughout all the land." 

He used the word land yet again. It is all based upon the land. How in the world can men and women have equal chances to prosper if they are not allowed to own the land that God has given them?  

Mosiah's use of the word chance means that we have to do the work ourselves. We don't get to live off of the spoils of others that the government has stolen from them. God gives us the land and we go to work on it, and some people work harder and smarter than others. Those who produce more are asked by God to voluntarily share their abundance with those who produce less. 

This is the formula for Zion. And Zion can't happen without land. 

I want to end on a somewhat positive note. Although we face impending destruction as a nation, we should rejoice in the fact that God desires to make us free. In the coming months and years we must all make a choice: will we rise up and become freemen, or will be bow down to the New World Order masters who want to round us up and imprison us in smart-city concentration camps?

Remember, Nephi said that the global elites will eventually destroy themselves, and Jacob gave us the clue to surviving the destruction. We must believe in Christ, which is more than to say we believe, it is to do the works of a Christian. We must not cast out and kill the prophets that God sends among us, and we must not build up and support secret combinations. In third Nephi, those who were destroyed engaged in both of the sins and iniquities described above. Furthermore, God said that He would protect His saints who are the elect according to the covenant

God has given us all the secrets for surviving the sweeping off of the greatest nation on earth. Will you heed the scriptures and become like the Nephites of old who survived and were visited by the Savior? Or will you face destruction with the rest of the fictional slaves? 

The choice is yours... 

Stay tuned for Part III, where I'll get more into Land Patents and the history of how the government has taken our land away. 

In the meantime here are a few other pieces I wrote that have to do with this subject:
