I believe that land issues are among the most important issues that we face right now as a nation. Without the land we are limited in our resources.
All land in America is legally owned by the U.S. Government with the exception of the lands in Texas, which is owned by Texas –the lone star state. Just look at the land titles, and note that they call you “TENANTS” and that makes you a renter, not an owner. It is generally thought that the land office for America’s land titles is in Virginia. In 1871 when they Incorporated America and rewrote our Constitution, the civil war was over and everything was in chaos ~this was the beginning of America’s demise.
All states were required to give to the U.S. INC. their land titles, but Texas had rescinded from the Union and when they returned they refused to give up their titles.
The Act of 1871 is an illegal act because the Constitution does not authorize the Congress to Incorporate any part of America nor to change our form of government. This Act of 1871 being illegal, also makes everything that follows it illegal, especially the huge debt that the U.S. Inc. has created in our name. Think of it like this, I steal your identity and then go to the bank and take out a loan, does this make you liable for that loan? Not at all. We the People of the United States of America can not be held legally responsible for the U.S. Inc. debt either. The list of atrocities committed by U.S. Inc. in our name is very long.
We the People need to gain control of our country and then bring the persons who have/are doing this to us, to justice. The Congress, Senate, and the Supreme Court are all guilty of treason because they did not tell us about the treason that was being perpetuated against us. They can not claim not to know about this, as ignorance is no excuse.
Think about it. Where did the land within the United States of America come from?
It came from: England, France, Spain, Mexico, Russia, Hawaii, and from the original native Americans. How did the United States acquire the land? By purchase; like with Manhattan Island, the Louisiana Purchase, and Alaska; By war power; like with Hawaii and much of the original native American lands; By Treaty; like the Northwest Territories Treaty, The Guadeloupe Hidalgo Treaty; and By Treaty as the end of war; like the Revolutionary War for independence from England.
The end result –regardless of how the land was acquired – a Treaty was ultimately designed whereby the land was resolved and reserved for the proper possession and individual ownership of the people of the United States of America. Security in land rights was, and is, found within the Treaty.
Once land was acquired in the country it was held by the United States until someone proved their claim to it. Once the land was properly claimed and filed, the General Land Office certified that the surveys were paid for. According to the various land acts of Congress, the land was then made patent under the signature and seal of the President of the United States of America.
When a State enters the Union of the United States of America, an Enabling Act is agreed to. The Enabling Act requires that all of the unappropriated (unpatented) lands be forever granted to the Union for its disposition. For example, here is an “irrevocable ordinance” from Colorado’s Enabling Act:
“That the people inhabiting said territory do agree and declare that they forever disclaim all right and title to the unappropriated public lands lying within said territory, and that the same shall be and remain at the sole and entire disposition of the United States.”
Without such transfer of control over the right and title to the land, there would be no effective authority in a land patent sealed under the signature of the President. For example, with few exceptions, U.S. of A. land patents have no authority in the Republic of Texas, because Texas never ceded its lands to the United States. Once the land is placed in trust under the sole disposition of the United States Government, it stands there until someone makes a proper claim for it, because the Constitution forbids the United States from owning it, they must grant it to the people, the ones that prove their proper claim to it; that is when the land is granted to the proper claimant and that grant is made patent under the hand and seal of the President.
The net effect of these Enabling Acts in relation to state taxes and state statutes/codes:
‘After exclusive jurisdiction over lands within a State have been ceded to the United States, private property location thereon is not subject to taxation by the State, nor can state statutes enacted subsequent to the transfer have any operation therein.’
Surplus Trading Company v. Cook, Western Union Telegraph Co. v. Chilies, Arlington Hotel v. Fant, Pacific Coast Dairy v. Department of Agriculture –these were all U.S. Supreme Court cases.
