“The degree of liberty or tyranny in any government is, it follows, in large degree a reflection of the relative determination of the subjects to be free and their willingness and ability to resist efforts to enslave them.” -Einstein

LEGAL “the undoing of God’s Law.” 1893 Dictionary of Arts and Sciences, Encyclopedia Britannica; a dictionary of arts, sciences and general literature. The R. S. Peale 9th 1893. God’s Law is also known as “Natural Law,” and Natural Law is the foundation for “Commercial Law,” wherein, “the Truth bounds all contracts.”
Private Enterprise. Cultivating the soil, manufacturing articles for sale, dealing in merchandise, and the pursuit of numerous and various activities which enlist individual energy. Dodge v Mission Tp. (CA8 Kan) 107 F 827. In the language of the ultraconservative, something undefiled by governmental regulation or participation. As used in a provision of a State Constitution FORBIDDING the STATE to be interested in any “private corporate enterprise,” The term has been held not merely to forbid the state to become interested in private enterprise carried on by individuals and corporations but also to Prohibit the State from itself Engaging in Private Enterprises ordinarily undertaken by private promoters.

Liberty & Property True, society cannot realize the illusory concept of the individual’s absolute independence. Freedom is to be found only in the sphere in which Government does not interfere. Liberty is always freedom from the Government.
Zoning categories Residential; Commercial (stores); Manufacturing (industrial); Agriculture. The zoning laws prevent the use of housing zones for stores, commercial zones for manufacturing, etc. Generally, single-family homes may be built in any zone; however, the reverse is not true. The courts will not uphold arbitrary zoning restrictions that tend to create a monopoly.
Spot zoning allows the zoning of individual parcels that are not in conformance with the general area. Spot zoning is often the result of political influence. Spot zoning that is arbitrary and discriminatory will not be upheld by California courts. ‘The court of appeals affirmed the trial court, pointing out that spot zoning is one of the zoning categories that California courts typically hold as invalid and unreasonable.’ Ross v City of Yorba Linda (1991).
Nonconforming use Zoning is not retroactive. These nonconforming uses are generally allowed to continue if they were legal when started. In Humboldt they just have to be huge to insure the most Tax revenue, thus squeezing the small farmer, who has lived here for eons and is a part of the community and culture, out of business.
Conditional use (TAX) permit or special-use permit, is a change in the zoning. It is not granted because of owner hardship but because allowing the use in the area is considered to be in the best interest of the community. An example would be to allow warehouses on an area that was designated for dock use and ship repair.
Contract is a meeting of the minds and performance. Consent, capacity, consideration, and a lawful object. ‘Consent’ -if fraud, duress, menace or undue influence is used in obtaining the party’s consent to a contract, it is VOIDABLE. ‘Lawful object’ -the contract must have a lawful purpose; that is to say, the subject or object of the agreement must not be in violation of the law or contrary to good morals.
Taxes can lawfully be imposed on the governed by their consent. Adding “Essential Necessities” to ½% Tax Measure Z ‘Humboldt Safety’ is semantic deceit that effectively changed the needed 2/3 vote, to a mere majority. It passed with a 55.41% majority. Roughly $15 million was extorted this first year. Corporate governmental services can label Taxes a permit, or a license, or a fee, BUT, it’s still a Tax. “Taxing profit is tantamount to taxing success.”
Fraud exists when a person misrepresents a material fact which he knows is not true, with the intent to induce the other person to enter a contract. Collusion is an agreement between two persons to defraud another of his rights.
RIGHT TO ASSERT STANDING
Hale v. Henkel, 201 U.S. 43, 74, 26 S.Ct. 370, 50 L.Ed. 652 (1906) The individual may stand upon his constitutional rights as a citizen. He is entitled to carry on his own business in his own way. His power to contract is unlimited. He owes no duty to the state or to his neighbors to divulge his business, or to open his doors to an investigation, so far as it may tend to incriminate him. He owes no such duty to the state, since he receives nothing therefrom, beyond the protection of his life and property. His rights are such as existed by the law of the land long antecedent to the organization of the state, and can only be taken from him by due process of law, and in accordance with the Constitution. Among his rights are a refusal to incriminate himself, and the immunity of himself and his property from arrest or seizure except under a warrant of law. He owes nothing to the public so long as he does not trespass upon their rights. On the other hand, the corporation is a creature of the state. It is presumed to be incorporated for the benefit of the public. It receives certain special privileges and franchises, and holds them subject to the laws of the state and the limitations of its charter. Its powers are limited by law. It can make no contract not authorized by its charter. Its rights to act as a corporation are only preserved to it so long as it obeys the laws of its creation. There is a reserved right in the legislature to investigate its contracts and find out whether it has exceeded its power. aff’d. Wilson v. United States, 221 U.S. 361, 31 S.Ct. 538, 55 L.Ed. 771 (1911).
Commerce (1537) social intercourse, interchange of ideas, opinions or sentiment. The exchange or buying and selling of commodities on a large scale involving transportation from place to place.
Commodity (15c) 1) an economic good as: a) a product of agriculture or mining. b) an article of commerce when delivered for ship-ment.
Corporate laws completely strip sovereigns of their God-given unalienable rights.
Unalienable rights are given to you by your creator. Civil rights are offered to you by Congress.
Cretin (1779) a stupid, vulgar or insensitive person.
Crime (14c) 1: an act or the commission of an act that is forbidden or the omission of a duty that is commanded by public law and that makes the offender liable to punishment by that law; esp : a gross violation of law 2 : a grave offense esp. against morality.
Crime against humanity (1945) : atrocity (as extermination or enslavement) that is directed esp. against an entire population or part of a population on specious grounds and without regard to individual guilt or responsibility even on such grounds.
The government operates at the pleasure of the people, for services and contracts that are better served under the unity of weights and measures, roadways and other conveyances where uniformity is necessary for dealing in commerce. It is for these reasons that government is not to delve into the private sector and compete against private business as they have an uneven balance with the power to tax and condemn.
“You cannot buy the revolution. You cannot make the revolution. You can only be the revolution. It is in your spirit, or it is nowhere.” -Ursula K. Le Guin, The Dispossessed
THE FIRST AMERICAN REVOLUTION
The first American Revolution did not start with “the shot heard round the world” on the morning of April 19, 1775. When British Regulars fired upon a small group of hastily assembled patriots on the Lexington Green, they were attempting to regain control of a colony they had already lost. The real Revolution, the transfer of political authority to the American patriots, occurred the previous summer when thousands upon thousands of farmers and artisans seized power from every Crown-appointed official in Massachusetts outside of Boston.
Starting in August 1774, each time a court was slated to meet under British authority in some Massachusetts town, great numbers of angry citizens made sure that it did not.
At Great Barrington, fifteen hundred patriots filled the courthouse to prevent the judges from entering. At Worcester, judges were made to read their recantations thirty times over, hats in hand, as they passed through 4,622 militiamen lined up along Maine Street. So, too, at Springfield, where, “in a sandy, sultry place, exposed to the sun,” once important officials sweated under the burden of their heavy black suits.
The functionaries of British rule cowered and collapsed, no match for the collective force of patriotic farmers. According to an eyewitness,
The people of each town being drawn into separate companies marched with
staves & musik. The trumpets sounding, drums beating, fifes playing and Colours
flying, struck the passions of the soul into a proper tone, and inspired martial courage
The governor’s councilors, once elected but now appointed directly by the Crown, were also forced to resign. Thomas Oliver, lieutenant-governor of Massachusetts and a councilor as well, ceded to a crowd of four thousand assembled around his home in Cambridge.
Timothy Paine of Worcester was visited by two thousand men who demanded his resignation. He told a committee he would comply, but his word would not suffice – the people wanted it in writing. Even that was not enough: the crowd demanded that he come out of his house while a representative read his resignation aloud. Again Paine complied, and again the people wanted more: he would have to read his resignation himself, with his hat off, several times as he passed through the ranks. Nothing else would do.
Through it all, the revolutionaries engaged in participatory democracy, which far outreached the intentions of the so-called “Founding Fathers.” They gathered under no special leaders. Their ad hoc representatives, such as the five men elected to talk with Timothy Paine, operated according to instructions approved by the assembled crowd and reported back immediately to the body as whole.
Even the nighttime mobs (and there were many) maintained a democratic aspect. In Braintree, two hundred men gathered on a Sunday at around 8:00 P.M. to remove some gunpowder from the powder house and to make the local sheriff burn two warrants he was attempting to deliver. Successful in their missions, they wanted to celebrate with a loud “Huzzah.” But should they disturb the Sabbath? “They called a vote,” wrote Abigail Adams, who observed the affair, and “it being Sunday evening it passed in the negative.”
By early October 1774, more than six months before the red dawn at Lexington, all Crown-appointed officials had been forced to disavow British authority or flee to Boston, which was still under military protection. “The Flames of Sedition,” wrote Governor Thomas Gage, had “spread universally throughout the Country beyond Conception.” The British had lost all control of the Massachusetts countryside, and they would never get it back.
Scholars differ widely on how to define “Revolution,” but a good starting point, firmly-rooted in common usage, can be found in the Random House Webster’ college Dictionary (1927): “a complete and forcible overthrow and replacement of an established government or political system by the people governed.”
So in the late summer and early fall of 1774, the people of rural Massachusetts completely and forcibly overthrew the established government and began to set up their own; this was the first American Revolution. While a group of renowned lawyers, merchants, and slave-owning planters were meeting as a Continental Congress in Philadelphia to consider whether or not they should challenge British rule, the plain farmers and artisans of Massachusetts guarding their liberties jealously and voting at every turn, wrested control from the most powerful empire on earth. ~From ‘Common Law Handbook For Juror’s, Sheriff’s, Bailiff’s, And Justices.’

The media has provided us with lots of disinformation. The default presumption has moved increasingly toward a lack of accountability. We maintain these sort of popular fictions about how authority works; and then there’s the reality . . . authority doesn’t exist in nature.
The reality is about the untold story. The unknown story. It’s a big shift. The question then is, How fortified is the press to be responsible? (It doesn’t have to be; they’re subsidized by the fact that the media is rich because it is an oligopoly). At this late date to rail against it is a waste of time, given that the form itself is on a path to extinction. The media is clueless about its audience (and country). The real problem with newspapers is groupthink. This is the problem with American society more broadly — it’s just a masturbatorium, filled with people who think exactly the same, who are from the same backgrounds, who have the same assumptions about everything. You get a much less interesting product when you have that. You also get a lot of fearful people, and a lot of people who are too dumb to go into finance. They just become unwilling to take any risk at all. When was the last time you saw anybody in the press write a piece that challenged the assumptions of their neighbors? (beside Forest Queen v the wrongdoers in T.S). Instead the reporters run out and find that thing that they believe in their heads to be true. We see it all the time. They’re just living out their own stereotypes.
We need our stories reflected through our lens too. We need our perspective, our lives reflected as they truly are –without Big Daddy. The reasons people give for being reluctant about media diversity – strikes me as antithetical to what journalism is. Gorging on the over-reporting coverage of MJ/TAX and Measure Z/TAX doesn’t actually mean coming to terms with it. The machine is not made to understand things. The machine is not made to understand the world of an individual. You can see the machine stumbling when we have three different dates as a cut-off date to comply. The media is failing. Now it’s reached a full boil, where you suddenly can’t ignore the failure. You can’t keep ignoring this thing – the lunatic fringe. The idea of a journalist measuring a story’s importance by the scale of the stage on which it occurs, rather than by the depth of meaning it reveals, is the reason they keep getting it wrong – they’re guided by the idea of trends.
A lot of times repetitive narratives, or lazy narratives, or devices like he-said-she-said, are substitutes for real knowledge. The people don’t notice because it conforms to their view of the world. If reporters think, “I don’t want to impose a story that those guys are insane, so I’m going to ‘spin’ it.” Now you’ve erased the possibility that what you think of as wacky and serious coexist, that the deliverance of the other side and the strategic political thinking coexist. And that’s sort of dangerous, right? That stuff is going to simmer, simmer, simmer, because you can’t see it. But it hurts on every level.
The last six or seven months have been really just a display of exploitation. I think there’s very little of self-awareness in the media, and that the Pinocchios don’t have a clue about anything other than themselves. At some point the media should say, “These are not good people.” They’re handicapping themselves by playing by a set of rules that no thinking person is playing anymore. And if they continue to cede that ground, their influence will continue to be diminished. Because of the lies, the deception, and the fraud; the Supes., Planning Dept., Ag., Water Board, Property rights group, the tax collector, Sheriff slash Coroner, District A., and the judicial whores – all of the corporate God worshippers –should be called out.
“I know that you can cover the same stories with a gee-whiz attitude, or leading with your uncertainties and your limitations. If you want to make the judgment that people don’t want to be hit up-front with uncertainties and limitations, that people want to be spoon-fed black-and-white and certainties, even when it doesn’t exist, so be it, but I think that you’re making a terrible and a harmful judgment.”
-Gary Schwitzer, publisher of Health News Review
“I think there’s a trap that the media fall into — and I think the New York Times is particularly guilty of this — which is being beholden to State Department narratives. The State Department is not a neutral party. The State Department is a political actor, in relationship to Russia and in relationship to Ukraine. Reporters often default to thinking of their government as the sort of ultimate authority.”
-Masha Gessen, freelance journalist and author of eight books.
“When you work at a corporation, being controversial or offending and alienating people is the worst possible thing you can do. You’re supposed to kind of please the power structure that exists. If you’re a corporation, the last thing you want is your media division alienating government officials. If you look at what are probably the two greatest failures of the American elite class in the past, say, 15 years, it would be the invasion of Iraq based on utterly erroneous pretenses that led to disaster on every last level; and the other would be the 2008 financial crisis that wasn’t foreseen and our economic geniuses failed to control, that led to incredible suffering. And the media played this critical role in both, because they’re the ones who failed to investigate any of these things and continue to hold up these people as authority figures, and so faith in every institution, every elite institution has been eroded, including and maybe especially the media, and once you destroy faith in elite institutions, people become very vulnerable to appeals that say, ‘I am outside of this structure, and I want to wage war on it and attack it, and I’m condemning it as corrupt.’”
-Glenn Greenwald, co-founding editor of The Intercept
“Diversify . . . It’s hard to imagine the Black Lives Matter movement without the power of the internet to both bear witness to the consequences of an unequal justice system (usually in the form of videos) and to empower people to combine their voices and demand change. So it’s not just about giving new voices the power to go around the old media gatekeepers, but increasing the total power of the media to do its job as the fourth estate and hold government accountable.”
-Arianna Huffington, Huffington Post
“It is no measure of health to be well adjusted to a profoundly sick society.” -Krishnamurti
“Fascism, communism and national socialism all share in common the explicit premise that the individual must subordinate himself to society’s needs, or as Hitler would phrase it: ‘Society’s needs come before the individual needs.’ ” -A. E. Samaan
The collision of theory with that of reality is instantaneous and painful. Move away from the false balance, toward saying what’s true and not true. There’s a process called ‘walking the black cat.’ If something happens that is a surprise, then we’ll say, “Okay. We know this happened on this date. When could we have – when should we have – seen it earlier?”
Look within yourself and know that you are FREE! Take back your personal power. Take back that power in the area of taxes. You may determine that the best and most moral action for you is to just say ‘no’ to lying politicians and bureaucrats. Just say ‘yes’ to your personal power and individual sovereignty.
