What Kind of Assembly

By Anna Von Reitz

Some patriots point to the fact that there were Christian assemblies functioning as elements of the government that existed prior to the Revolution and try to make a case for thinking that Christian assemblies are what are referenced with respect to our lawful government. This is not true.

Our Founders made a very decided choice when constructing our government and they very purposefully did not create a theocracy of any kind.

They wanted to avoid the kind of religious oppression that they and their ancestors experienced in Europe and they knew that in order to secure freedom of religion for themselves, they would have to guarantee freedom of religion for everyone else.

The Separation of Church and State was adopted, and religion was (hopefully forever) admitted to be a private matter.

This wise decision on their part and the creation of secular State Assemblies to run the government of this country, is what keeps radical Muslim and Jewish groups at bay and prevents the kind of religious strife that consumes other countries to this day.

So our State Assemblies are not Christian assemblies and not meant to be. Our State Assemblies are secular in nature, and everyone of every creed, color, and ethnicity is welcome to participate.

Another important point about our State Assemblies, is that they are not State-of-State “Assemblies”.

Along with the other semantic deceits that have crept into popular use is the misuse of the word “Assembly” to describe State-of-State organizations composed of U.S. Citizens or even “citizens of the United States”.

These organizations are properly called “societies” or “associations” —- but the pernicious mislabeling of these groups has led to no end of confusion and continued attempts by U.S. Citizens and Municipal citizens of the United States to form “assemblies”.

State Assemblies are formed by the American People claiming their singular allegiance to their State of the Union.

Any group of American Persons owing allegiance to the British Monarch or the Pope, is not an assembly by definition, and everyone concerned needs to be fully aware of that fact.

This is why actual State Assemblies are at such pains to be sure that all members complete their paperwork and declarations and record the same, so that the honor and nature of the State Assembly is unsullied and their authority is unquestionable with regard to the land and soil of this country.

Any one who wishes to retain any vestige of allegiance to the British Monarch or the Pope is foreclosed from joining the State Assembly and operating as a State Citizen. Our Forefathers separated the jurisdictions to prevent conflicts of interest and we maintain that separation for the same reasons.

Finally, let it be noted throughout that while our Public Government is Secular and Non-Sectarian, our British and Papal Subcontractors have adopted structures opposed to our government.

The British Territorial Government is a democracy.

The Papist Municipal Government is a theocracy.

And our actual government is neither.

So, when you join an actual State Assembly as a State Citizen, be prepared to chuck all other affiliations and allegiances at the door. Realize that you are not part of any democracy or a theocracy of any kind anymore; you are instead one of the living progeny, one of the People of this country, living in a republican State of the Union.

Actual State Assembly = republican State of the Union = American People = Jural Assemblies.

Subcontracting British Territorial Government = Democracy = U.S. Citizens = Jural Societies and Associations.

Subcontracting Municipal Government = Theocracy = “citizens of the United States” = Jural Commissions and Councils.

When our actual State Assemblies encounter would-be members who don’t (1) knowingly and willingly produce their proper Declarations or (2) fail to publicly record the same or (3) persist in speaking and acting in terms of Federal or Municipal code (which is all foreign law to us), or (4) follow a pattern of trying to use the Assembly for their personal grievances or (5) cause disruption to the good order and function and credibility and honor of the Assembly —– our Assemblies are encouraged to educate such people if possible, and to, if necessary, ban them from participation.

Having the right to participate in a State Assembly is based upon acceptance of the grave public responsibility involved. This requires a thorough understanding of exactly which level of government the actual State Assembly occupies and the capacity in which the State Assembly acts.
