After nearly a year of investigations and relying on undercover informants, the ITCCS has established that at least two Canadian senators, a former cabinet minister in the Harper government and three senior church officials are actively engaged in trafficking children for sexual and sacrificial purposes in the Ottawa-Montreal area.
The ITCCS has also learned that these same accused men are complicit in the 2014 murder of Ottawa police inspector Kal Ghadban, who was investigating the disappearance of children at the hands of the accused; and that key ITCCS investigators in Canada, including Rev. Kevin Annett, are also being targeted for elimination by them.
The six accused men are Senators Larry Campbell and Patrick Brazeau, former Harper cabinet minister Denis Lebel, Quebec Catholic Cardinal Gerald Lacroix, and Anglican Bishops Fred Hiltz and Bob Bennett.
The full details of the exhaustive investigation by a special ITCCS team were shared this past weekend with the ITCCS Central Council during its closed gathering near Montreal. In response, the Council has placed Rev. Kevin Annett and other Canadian investigators under a protective quarantine, and announced plans to convene a new common law court in Canada in the new year to indict and prosecute the six accused men.
The Council will be issuing a full public statement to the global media this week, along with excerpts from the Investigative Report.
A Council spokesman said today,
“All of these accused men have been under investigation for some time. Senator Campbell has been named by police sources in Vancouver as a major suspect in the disappearance of aboriginal women at the notorious Pickton farm. Senator Brazeau has already pleaded guilty in a Quebec court to charges of sexual assault with a deadly weapon and drug trafficking. Denis Lebel, his friend Cardinal Lacroix, and Bishops Hiltz and Bennett have all been named by government and church insiders as active participants in the Ninth Circle ritual killing of children, at secret catholic church facilities in Montreal and Rome. We will be issuing indictments against all of these men, based on sworn testimony.”
Kevin Annett will be issuing his own televised statement to the public to accompany the ITCCS media release.

Illusion is the most tenacious trait in humanity. History teaches but it has no pupils.
- Antonio Gramsci
Two millenia ago, the emperors of the Chin dynasty developed the earliest known type of crowd control. An especially hated minister of the government would periodically be thrown to the mob and ripped to pieces, thereby satiating the restlessness and rage of the people while keeping Imperial power safely intact.
This system was later perfected into something we call voting.
I can’t say I was surprised yesterday when a majority Liberal government was appointed over the ashes of one of the most hated political regimes in Canadian history. That’s how the game works, after all: the old tag-team operation of manufactured change designed to convince the mob that it’s really achieved something by bringing in the new guy.
Like those similarly deposed rulers named “Pope” Benedict and President George Bush junior, Prime Minister Stephen Harper increasingly and expertly played his role of irredeemable villain in order to draw upon himself the hatred of a majority of the electorate, allowing his attractive, smiling Liberal replacement to be acclaimed and loved by the crowd simply for looking nicer. This kind of puppet show worked admirably for those other Villains’ appointed successors, President Obama and “Pope Francis”; and now it’s worked equally well for Justin Trudeau, that paltry reincarnation of his wife beating and child molesting father Pierre.
Meanwhile, the election game concluded, the Empire will carry on, for now: the mob “democratically” satiated, the Corporatocracy preserved.
Any Canadian who has the semblance of a political memory must find the entire thing more than repulsive, especially if we remember how the same apparent changing of the guard happened not so long ago after an equally despised Tory Prime Minister, Brian Mulroney, saw his party wiped out and reduced to two seats in Parliament on the wave of the same kind of Liberal landslide. Then, after years of the same kind of mob-ruled corruption, the Tories under Stephen Harper took over again with the same promising of goodness.
And so on.
I’ve always hated ping pong. It seems so mindless and repetitive – just like Canadian voting patterns. Strait jacketed by a two party bi-polarism, Canadians exhibit the cyclical behavior pattern of an untreated manic depressive, feverishly handing total power first to one palliative and then to another, and never learning a thing in the process. The farce is almost like American politics, except it’s a hell of a lot more boring north of the border.
Like mashed potatoes without the gravy, to quote Canuckophobe Billy Bob Thornton.
I don’t imagine any of this reality will register with the smug electorate who think they did something on October 19, even when their momentarily shiny and new Prime Minister stands up in Parliament and with all the other neophyte Pigs at the Trough takes his oath of loyalty not to those who elected him or to a Constitution, but to a senile pederast in London. But surely it’s time for those of us who call ourselves awakened to do something more than gripe about the tragic-comedy called Canada, Ltd.
Blasted out of my own accommodation to Canadiana by what I discovered up close about the masses of little corpses upon which this nation is built, I have called for a Republic for years now: not as a nice idea but as a moral and lawful necessity. It’s not a new call: MacKenzie, Papineau, my ancestor Philip Annett and lots of other folks tried unsuccessfully to create such a Republic in arms in 1837. But history and our own recent efforts show us the truth that regardless of what opinion polls will tell you, Canadians aren’t ready for self-government – including the ones who say they are.
Simply put, they lack the courage.
I’ve met and worked with a lot of smart, militant and good-hearted Canadians over the decades, but I know very few courageous ones. Many of the paper members of our fledgling Republic of Kanata movement are experts in common law court procedure and how to wangle yourself out of paying personal income taxes. Some of them even tepidly challenge the system as one man shows and become internet celebrities. But the valor and the consistent will that breaks down every obstacle and forces a revolutionary movement into being is rarely to be found in Canada.
We can, and do, blame our upbringing for this, of course. Who of us in Canadian schools didn’t have pumped into our vulnerable little brains the recurring refrain that we are not free citizens, but “loyal subjects” of someone calling herself a Queen? The hilariously accurate scene from the comedy “Canadian Bacon”, in which every Canuck in a crowd keeps saying “Sorry!” to the rowdy American who keeps slamming into all of them, tells it all, in a way. Canadian “niceness” is in reality just veiled over cowardice.
During the critical years from 2005 to 2008 when a few of us forced our home grown Genocide into mainstream consciousness, I couldn’t find many other Canadians to occupy churches with us. It was mostly aboriginals who did so, and a host of them paid for their courage with their lives. White Canada hung back and watched our actions in trepidation – especially the “progressives”. Still to this day, the idea that we, the people, have the power to nullify criminal institutions, convene our own courts and take back our country is one that frightens most Canadians – including those in our Kanata network.
In that sense, it’s perhaps small wonder that the recent October 19 election witnessed one of the biggest voter turnouts in Canadian history, if you believe the corporate media. “Change” for Canadians still means timidly handing over their authority to somebody else – even to unaccountable servants of a foreign criminal power, and to the real rulers like Power Corporation and the Bronfman and Desmarais families.
Nevertheless, as Sun Tzu reminds us, change and uncertainty is the only constant in the universe. There is a new spirit in the land, even here in Canada: but it can only be detected close up.
So, in closing, some words from the wise: when you see that spirit becoming embodied and emerging in your own neighborhood – in closed down crown courts and reclaimed property, in the citizen arrests of child rapists and criminally convicted church and state officials, and even in new Peoples’ Assemblies of local self-governance – be sure not to act like a Canadian. Don’t draw the curtains, or run for help to see if it’s all “legal”. Instead, have the fortitude to forget who you think you are and stand with us, and risk everything for our one improbable chance at liberty.

Written from free territory in the Republic of Kanata
A Call to all Canadians issued by the Provisional Council of the Republic of Kanata
October 1, 2015
(to be distributed at polling stations and generally to all voters)
On October 19, you will be asked to use a ballot to sign away your sovereign authority to an unaccountable and criminal foreign ruler: the so-called Queen of England. Your rulers call this “democracy”. We call it slavery – and an act of treason.
Every Member of Parliament you elect will take an Oath of Allegiance not to you or to the laws of Canada, but to “Queen Elizabeth the Second and all of her descendants”. Rather than accountable representatives, you will be electing servants of a “crown” that is guilty of centuries of genocide, theft and fraud against the peoples of Canada. Why hand over your power to such a tyranny?
Canadians are awakening to this crime. Nearly sixty percent of you want to end all ties with the British crown and establish a sovereign Republic in Canada. Last January 15, patriots across our country acted on this majority mandate and established a legal framework for such a Republic. You can now live under the freedom and jurisdiction of this Republic, and help bring about a new, truly democratic society under the Common Law.
By refusing to vote on October 19 and withholding your taxes to the unaccountable puppet government in Ottawa, you are declaring your refusal to live any longer under a corrupt foreign power. But we must do more than disestablish the old tyranny. Across Canada, the new Republic is being built on the ground according to the will of We, the People, who are the source of all law and government.
The police, judges and civil servants of Canada are now being asked publicly to disavow their allegiance to the criminal “Crown” and its laws, and swear loyalty to the People of Canada and their rising new Republic. And a Constitutional Convention to establish the first Republican Congress and its laws will be convened in the near future as a working alternative to the criminal regime in Ottawa.
Help us create a future of justice and freedom for all of our people and for your children. Take the Pledge of Citizenship to the Republic of Kanata, join your local Republican Peoples’ Assembly, and reclaim all that has been taken from us.

Voter au Canada, un acte de trahison : l’heure est venue de se réapproprier le pays !
Un appel à tous les Canadiens émis par le Conseil provisoire de la République du Kanata
Le 1er octobre 2015
Le 19 octobre prochain, vous serez appelés à remplir un bulletin de vote et ainsi remettre votre autorité souveraine à une dirigeante étrangère criminelle et irresponsable : celle qu’il est convenu d’appeler la Reine d’Angleterre. Vos dirigeants appellent ça l’exercice de la « démocratie ». Nous appelons cela de l’esclavage, et un acte de trahison.
Chaque député que vous élirez devra jurer fidélité non à vous et aux lois du Canada, mais à « Sa Majesté la Reine Elizabeth II, reine du Canada, et à tous ses héritiers et successeurs ».[...] Au lieu de représentants responsables, vous élirez les serviteurs d’une « Couronne » coupable de siècles de génocide, de vol et de fraude envers les peuples du Canada. Pourquoi alors remettre votre pouvoir à un tel régime tyrannique ?
Les Canadiens prennent de plus en plus conscience de ces crimes. Près de soixante pour cent d’entre vous désirez couper tout lien avec la couronne britannique et établir une république souveraine au Canada. Le 15 janvier dernier, des patriotes d’un bout à l’autre de notre pays ont agi sur ce mandat d’une majorité et établi un cadre légal établissant une telle république. Vous pouvez dorénavant vivre librement selon l’autorité de cette république, et contribuer à former une société nouvelle et véritablement démocratique selon les préceptes de la common law (droit commun).
En refusant de voter le 19 octobre prochain, et en retenant vos impôts versés au gouvernement pantin irresponsable qui loge à Ottawa, vous signifiez votre refus de continuer à vivre sous la férule d’un pouvoir étranger corrompu. Mais nous devons faire plus que démanteler l’ancien régime tyrannique. Partout au Canada s’érige la nouvelle République, sur le terrain, par notre volonté à Nous, le Peuple, qui sommes source de toute loi et de tout gouvernement.
On demande à la police, aux juges et aux serviteurs de l’État canadien de désavouer publiquement leur allégeance envers la « Couronne » criminelle et ses lois, et de jurer fidélité au Peuple du Canada et à sa nouvelle République montante. Une Convention constitutionnelle visant à établir le premier Congrès républicain et les lois y afférentes sera convoquée dans un proche avenir afin de proposer une solution de remplacement à l’actuel régime criminel installé à Ottawa.
Aidez-nous à créer un avenir de justice et de liberté pour toutes nos nations et les générations futures. Prêtez serment de citoyenneté à la République du Kanata et joignez-vous à votre Assemblée républicaine populaire locale afin de reprendre tout ce qui nous été enlevé. Pour de plus amples renseignements, visitez www.kanatarepublic.ca ou contactez-nous par courriel à firstname.lastname@example.org .

A Pre-Election Wake up Call by Kevin D. Annett
September 29, 2015
When I was barely fifteen years old I was nearly expelled from school after I loudly urged the other kids at University Hill Secondary to not pay their student council fees. It was my first overtly political act.
What prompted my call was that I had just learned to my outrage that our ostensibly “democratically elected” student council was in fact governed by an adult “supervisor”, the school’s Vice-Principal, who had to approve any of its decisions, and who could summarily dismiss the entire council if he so chose.
Welcome to Canada.
None of my fellow students back then seemed especially comfortable with self-government, any more than do most Canadians today. My fifteen year old self was called nasty names and told to stop rocking the boat when he impudently suggested that those we elect should be accountable to us, and not to an omnipotent father figure. For adolescents, and the Canadian electorate, prefer to defer to some august “supervisor” with the power to overrule their wishes, whether that shadow ruler be a Vice-Principal or a Governor-General. After all, every Member of Parliament we elect takes their Oath of True Allegiance and obligation not to We, the People, or to a Constitution, but to “Queen Elizabeth the Second and all of her descendants”.
In any responsible system of government, handing over one’s authority to unaccountable servants of a foreign ruler is normally considered an act of sedition. But such crime is the law here in Canada: a ritualized loss of sovereignty we like to call federal elections. And once again, we’re all set to repeat this treasonous farce on October 19.
Now, I don’t particularly care what shade of political opinion we choose to sell out our nation with next month, whether that be Tory Blue, Liberal Red, NDP Orange or Groovy Green. These politicians, like our high school puppet student government, all play the same deceitful game. And none of them who you elect on October 19 will represent or be answerable to you one bit. Just like at my old high school, our “democratically elected” politicians can be dismissed at any time by just one guy: in Canada’s case, a colonial fossil called the Governor General, whose official title is “the Queen’s representative and official Head of State”.
Forty five years ago when I dared to suggest that we refuse to fund a lie posing as democracy, I experienced my first taste of public rebuke and banning. None of my fellow high schoolers wanted to even look my way after I spoke my heresy. Whether then or now, slaves never like to have their chains pointed out to them. But adolescents and Canadians all have to grow up eventually; and the first act of maturity is to see things as they are, and not as we’ve been told they are.
The old codger who actually ran our student council all those years ago was a stumbling fart named Arthur Lower, who seemed harmless enough, despite his tendency to fall asleep during council meetings. But if Art had have been caught and tried for raping some kid or stuffing a body in a garbage dump somewhere, I’d like to hope that committing such a felony would have disqualified him from being our student council’s “head of state”.
Sadly, no such simple logic or justice applies here in Canada. For as it turns out, an equally tottering figurehead named Lizzie Windsor who is the CEO of our nation is in fact a convicted felon, duly prosecuted by an international court. On October 10, 1964 while in Kamloops, British Columbia, “Queen” Elizabeth kidnapped ten aboriginal children who were never seen again; and she also approved the murderous residential schools genocide that killed another 50,000 or more children. But still that royal criminal sits on her throne, and is deferred to and sanctioned by every elector, politician, cop and judge in Canada.
Does that sound right to you?
You know, it’s not every day that any Johnny and Susie Canuck can commit both treason and the aiding and abetting of a convicted criminal simply by marking an “x” on a ballot. We are, after all, allotted only about ten such scratches of “democracy” in a lifetime. Taking responsibility for one’s self, and one’s own nation, seems to be an onerous burden for many Canadians, who generally prefer to leave weighty matters of state and politics to child rapists, psychopathic lawyers and real estate speculators. And so while surrendering our sovereignty to yet another criminal in high office is not an especially un-Canadian thing to do, it is really becoming all too banal, and unjustified.
However, we can all do something different, believe it or not. We can actually take back our nation.
In his book The Prince, Niccolo Machiavelli warned those of us who contemplate creating a new order of things that we will only succeed if we are armed, and if necessary we force the people to believe in the new way. Unarmed prophets, Machiavelli says, will always fail, for they must rely on the constant good will of the people, who are by nature fickle and easily turned. I’ve learned that hard lesson many times over. And so even now, when a new Republic is being envisioned and established to replace the old regime of Canada, the fickle crowd waits, and hesitates, even when nearly 60% of them believe that the crowned head of Britain must indeed fall in the dust.
Back at University Hill Secondary school, things finally did change for our body politic. Two years after I called for an end to our puppet student government, we achieved precisely that. Without waiting for anybody’s approval we established instead our own weekly Students’ Assembly, consisting of anyone who wanted to attend, debate and vote on any matter in the school. For the first time, we experienced self-government and the breath of liberty, but only because we had created it for ourselves.
What adolescents can do, even Canadians can attempt. Our new Republic will be won from the ground up, by establishing and maintaining such popular Peoples’ Assemblies that will draft and enforce the laws and Constitution of our new society. And so instead of voting away your liberty to a corrupt foreign tyranny on October 19, shut down or shun the voting stations and convene your own local Assembly that will elect delegates to a national Republican Congress.
That kind of direct sovereign action will be our answer to all of the puppets and the tyrants. It’s called genuine democracy. It’s called the Republic of Kanata. And it beats slavery, every time.

On September 22, the world’s oldest lie and its greatest crime is coming to the heartland of America. The aim of this power is to enlist Americans in its plan to establish a single tyranny over humanity: not a one world government, but a global corporatocracy of one master and many slaves. The mask worn by this power is the Church of Rome and its ruler, Jorge Bergoglio.
A Special Communique concerning the papal visit to the USA
27 August, 2015
Brussels and New York
The ITCCS and its American affiliates will be conducting public protests and spiritual convergences in Washington DC, New York City and Philadelphia between September 23 – 27, 2015 during the visit of Pope Francis, Jorge Bergoglio, to the USA.
These actions will be designed to continually confront the Pope throughout his state visit, and to share with the public and media the evidence of his proven crimes against humanity, including his complicity in the trafficking and disappearance of children.
An itinerary of these actions follows.
“By canonizing a mass murderer of California Indians the very first day he’s in America, Francis is showing the world that he stands in the genocidal tradition of his church, despite all his talk of reform” said one of the New York City organizers of the protests.
“The Pope can’t deny that he’s personally implicated in the selling of Argentine children during the dictatorship there. We have the witnesses. And we’ll be outside the United Nations, and the United States Congress, and wherever this child trafficker shows his hypocritical face”.
The ITCCS is also working with spiritual elders from many communities to hold exorcism rituals and prayer vigils during the papal visit, outside the catholic services he will be conducting. More details of these ceremonies will be forthcoming.
ITCCS officers will also attempt to serve a standing international Common Law Citizen Arrest warrant on Jorge Bergoglio while he is in America, and will request police assistance in their action.

Whoever grasps and holds onto the essential energy (shih) of a situation will control the outcome of any battle and the fate of any opponent, no matter how powerful they are. – Sun Tzu, The Art of War
Men always begin revolutions with their eyes fixed on the past. – Frederich Engels
What is nothing has been chosen to bring to nothing all the things that are. – 1 Corinthians 1:28
Imagine for a moment the present global tyranny not simply as a visible system of corporatism, violence and corruption, but as a vast energy transfer, sucking the wealth, vitality and life from billions of people and the biosphere itself into one massive machine. Call that machine whatever you like; its nature and behavior is geared towards a single purpose, and that is the absorption of life into itself. It is one enormous feeder, and we are its morsels.
To first understand this simple truth equips us inwardly to stop this insatiable complex and our participation in it, far better than can mere political analysis. But understanding alone does not free us to act.
All interactions in our universe involve an essential energy that guides the movement of every particle, and determines every outcome. Sun Tzu called this energy “shih”; Plato saw it as a pre-existing essence behind the mask of appearances. Some like to call it God. Regardless of its nomenclature, this Source that binds our reality is like a mighty river that can either sweep us along helplessly, or be utilized by us to alter reality. Every ruler understands this simple fact, even while the rest of us have been trained not to grasp it, and thereby are kept eyeless in a harness held by a few.
Those who understand and utilize this “shih” are able to control the thoughts and actions of the multitudes of humanity only as long as the latter are devoid of their own access to shih. The primary means of stripping humanity of attaining its normally inherent shih power is by using fear and trauma based conditioning at a very young age to cause people to habitually surrender and defer at every level to some “higher” external power, and thereby transfer their own particle of shih to that power.
Such an unending energy transfer from the many to the few is the basis of all elite rule in our world. And yet such a system is inherently unstable, since following Natural Law, the nature of shih as with any energy system is to disseminate equally and be held in common, and not privately: a fact that invalidates as contrary to the natural order all individual rule, whether by kings, presidents, popes or corporate oligarchies.
We know from our own experience that the loss of shih from the many to the few is not simply unnatural and disharmonious; it is so constant and systemic that it cannot be resisted by individual effort alone, since our individuality has been conditioned to operate habitually rather than consciously. We think like we eat – automatically – and therefore without shih. For instance, when faced with political repression by the government, our first reflex is to surrender our shih once again to them by “pressuring” them to give us justice through ritualized protest and petitioning, relying on their courts and government.
We do not seem capable of shifting our attention away from the existing “authorities” simply because we have no working experience of self-government: of what our own shih actually is. And thus like any lost child, we cannot try to change our world without continually deferring to the “powers that be”, whether that be a sympathetic judge, or a “progressive” politician, or even a spiritual adviser. Our imprinted slavery makes it impossible for us to collectively reclaim ourselves, and our world.
Erasing a conditioned imprint may begin within the individual, but it is not manifested individualistically; for collectivity is the nature of universal shih, which binds all phenomena in a “mutual garment of destiny and interconnectedness”.
In any successful revolution, the personal awakening of individuals inexorably causes a collective ripple effect in many other hearts and minds that generates a new kind of “group shih”: one that is unalterably opposed to the shih of the rulers. This new energy system is a living and working counter-culture that draws energy and power away from the rulers and their system, and returns it to the multitude of people, provided the latter can hold onto it as a group by retaining their own new and separate identity.
The very nature and purpose of our struggle today is to achieve precisely such a new energy transfer, and allow all of humanity to reclaim their natural shih and the collective liberty that it bestows. This purpose must continually guide our thoughts, words and deeds.
Applying Shih Knowledge to our Present Situation
The Chinese general Sun Tzu, writing thousands of years ago, had the best practical understanding of how such an awareness of the essential energy behind reality can and must be used in concrete struggles, especially in war and politics. “Nothing is permanent in life except conflict and change” he wrote in his Art of War. “One either masters the shih of one’s opponent or is mastered by it.”
If we set aside our western philosophical bias that dualistically separates matter from spirit, we recognize that Sun Tzu is accurately describing the dance that occurs in any conflict with an adversary. As he writes,
“Enemies, like all opposites, are mutually dependent on one another, being part of a greater unity and purpose. Thus, enemies are defeated not by their destruction but by their absorption into that greater whole.”
In short, we can win any engagement not by outnumbering or crushing an opponent, but by re-directing his own essential energy into the outcome we desire. This fact is of obvious relevance to us, since as a small movement we face what appears to be overwhelming odds.
A classic example of how a small force can triumph over a huge adversary is found from our own campaign in Canada to indict church and state for Genocide. That campaign, consisting of a few dozen of us in three cities, successfully forced Canada and its churches to respond on our terms by admitting their crime and helping to commence their own dissolution. For by acceding to the new reality we had presented, the old matrix called “Christian Canada” surrendered to us its shih by responding on our terms. This surrender helped to energize our agenda of disestablishing Crown and Church: a process that is continuing now to unfold. This new power alignment is crumbling Canada and laying the basis for a new shih arrangement that we call the Republic of Kanata.
What achieved this victory were not our numbers but our strategic position, our visible persistence, and our ability to out maneuver and re-direct the shih of the system, armed as we were with an undeniable truth and evidence that kept both church and state constantly fearful and on the defensive.
Similarly but even more stunning is the other, greater victory that flowed from this first one: namely, the blow against the Vatican in Rome, and our historic deposing of Pope Benedict in February 2013 by our public conviction of him and other top catholic officials for the same genocide.
This successful mastering by us of a hugely more powerful opponent’s shih happened because our small movement deliberately used a strategy of guerrilla warfare, which is summed up by Sun Tzu thus:
First, when I am few and my enemy is many, I can use the few to strike the many because those whom I battle are restricted, being larger and more unwieldy. Their strength thereby becomes their weakness.
Second, do not respond to the ground your enemy has prepared for you, but instead, shape their ground. Then they have no alternative but to be led by you, as if it was their own idea.
Third, hide the time of battle from an enemy, and make what he loves and defends your first objective. By aiming at and seizing what the enemy holds dear, their greater strength and plans are rendered useless, and they must stop and respond on your terms, no matter how small are your forces.
Thus, on March 17, 2008 during Palm Sunday services, two of our action groups occupied without warning the largest catholic cathedrals in Vancouver and Toronto, making headlines across Canada with our demand that the genocidal churches be prosecuted and forced to return the remains of the Indian children they killed. We also announced that we were commencing an international court action to charge Canada with genocide.
Less than a month later, the government announced for the first time an “inquiry” into the missing residential school children. This led directly to the official Parliamentary “apology” just three months later, in July 2008, and the subsequent official admission by Ottawa that genocide did indeed occur in Canada at the cost of thousands of dead children.
By striking unexpectedly at the Achilles’ heel of the main instigator of genocide – behind its own lines, amidst its most “sacred” ritual – we not only shocked and frightened the enemy but created the field of battle and forced our opponent in its fear to respond on our terms. Since then, no-one in Canada has dared anymore to deny that children were killed in the residential schools, and that it was indeed genocide. In this way, just a few of us reshaped the national narrative; or, in Sun Tzu’s words, we mastered the shih of an enormous adversary and re-directed it on our terms.
Similarly, the shock wave that deposed Pope Benedict has continued to spread, forcing four other resignations by top Vatican officers named in our common law court indictments, and compelling an enormous and desperate public relations effort by the present “pope” to shore up Rome’s collapsing credibility. What is this but living proof of the ability of a small force to absorb the shih of the biggest and oldest enemy imaginable: the Vatican Incorporated?
Compare these stunning victories by a handful of people with the negligible results of many thousands of protestors standing outside government buildings and waving placards, and thereby surrendering their collective shih to their adversary. For the unstated message of any group of protestors to some external power is clearly this: “We acknowledge your authority; you have the power, not us. All we ask is that you change things for us.” This is not change on the terms of the people, but accommodation to elite rule, regardless of the outcome.
Such impotence called protest, like voting or “going through the courts”, is in truth the clearest example of the energy-sucking nature of the machine that relies on such controlled “opposition” to feed its own shih.
In reality, no such diminishing of peoples’ own shih is ever required for change to occur. For the ability for any sized group to capture the shih of the government and any corporate regime has been proven in practice. In energetic terms, this constitutes a reclaiming of power in order to re-balance shih, whose nature is to disseminate and be shared equally. This approach is the only sure means of changing the nature of power, and thereby bringing down tyranny. And yet as we noted, understanding this truth does not automatically make it happen, for the simple fact that we are all a part of what it is we oppose.
The Symbiotic Nature of Shih
It is often remarked – usually as a justification for not getting involved in a radical movement – that “All revolutions just end up replacing one tyrant with another”. From a distance, history seems to bear this out.
The moments where masses of people shake off their chains and govern themselves directly and consciously seem to be episodic and brief; most of the time, the “masses” appear to be like a passive herd led around by some elite or another. But this appearance is in fact illusory; people’s acquiescence to a regime is not the same thing as them actively supporting it. People will act to change things only when they can see and feel that there exists a working alternative to the status quo: that is, only when they are able to recognize and establish a new collective shih. But why does this not seem to happen very often? What is the bulwark that holds people back?
These questions can only be answered in practice by knowing first the symbiotic and interdependent nature of all power and its shih.
Just as darkness and light depend on one another and are aspects of the same phenomenon, so too are opponents in any war or political change. Even the Biblical “war in heaven” was fought between two types of angels, Lucifer in fact meaning a “being of light”. Any struggle is ultimately a dance between the same entity wearing different masks. Just as shih, like water, always seeks the lowest and most common ground, so does any conflict: conscious or not, both sides search for a new symbiosis by which both can survive and prosper.
For this reason, it is impossible for any group of citizens to establish a new society within the framework and institutions of the old regime, since all of their thoughts and hopes are conditioned by it. As Frederich Engels observed so accurately following the aborted European insurrections of 1848, “Men always begin revolutions with their eyes fixed on the past.” And the Italian rebel Giuseppe Garibaldi, who briefly overturned the papacy in 1870, wrote, “One cannot secure the support of the people by calling for an overthrow of society, but instead by assuring them that their security will be preserved by the changes we envision.”
Not surprisingly, such “pragmatic”, backward-looking approaches of power-seeking rebels created no new society, and in fact ended up duplicating the regimes they fought. Nineteenth century European radicals had not read Sun Tzu; nor, for that matter, have most of today’s erstwhile rebels.
To establish a new collective shih, we must not resist or combat the old regime but absorb its own shih, as we did with Canada and the Vatican. And yet in practice, old habits of thought and deference prevent even the best of us from doing so consistently on our own.
I continually experience this within all of the groups I work with. While holding to the vision of a new independent Republic based on common law, our best people will still insist on going into the lawless “crown” or de facto courts to remedy the latest injustice done against them. They cannot simply turn away from the old regime. Their psychological and energetic dependence on what is familiar runs far deeper within them than they understand, because one’s position within the collective symbiosis is largely invisible to the untrained mind. In short, we are all part of a bigger and hidden “group mind” – the Bible calls it our Angel – that can only be nullified by another collective.
What this means in practice is that, regardless of anyone’s degree of personal “awareness”, everyone seems to be waiting in trepidation for something or someone else to make the final break and bring in a new regime. Until then, people tend to accommodate, and worry about how to “protect” themselves and others within the present system. It is therefore hardly surprising that our membership within the Republic and common law movement has remained largely a passive one, with their eyes and feet mired in the past, waiting for someone else’s leadership.
The only remedy for this immobility is provided collectively through the creation of another group identity and system into which we can draw people out of the status quo; and, by that moment when a critical mass is reached and not only consciousness but the capacity to act differently emerges among many people. This emergence is always unpredictable, but when it occurs, a huge shift across society happens almost overnight, as history amply demonstrates. And then the new shih alignment can become an actuality.
In many ways, all that we do today is a preparation for the opportunities created by the moment in time, that upcoming window of action, when a new and free society can come into being from the ground up. To quote Sun Tzu again,
Operations must always be geared to the rapid seizure and exploitation of the key moment of opportunity created in battle, which can never be predicted. The prime purpose of operational commanders is to recognize and act decisively upon such fleeting moments.
The operational commanders, in our case, are the on-the-ground local organizers whose job it is to build the movement in their communities by empowering wider numbers with the idea and reality that they can govern themselves according to a new and higher law, completely separate from the existing institutions. To use an example from American history, local militia across New England were closing down crown courts, burning mortgage deeds and defending the people and their land against British troops, long before the first shots were fired at Lexington and Concord. And only such an already conscious and active populace could have made the Revolution.
In that regard, our convening of the Peoples’ Assemblies is an expression of this long struggle to establish a new collective shih, because it puts flesh on the idea that fundamental change lies only in our own hands.
The Peoples’ Assemblies
The Revolution may have been affected first in the hearts and minds of the People, but it took shape in our Constitutional Conventions, where the People learned how to hold and wield power for themselves. – John Adams, 1791
The Commons of England assembled in Parliament declare that the people under God are the origin of all just power, and have the supreme authority of the nation. Whatsoever is enacted and declared law by the Commons alone has the force of law, and all the people are included thereby, with or without the consent of the king. – An Act to Establish the High Court of Justice, House of Commons, London, January 4, 1649
Under this Proclamation, all lawful authority now resides in the People gathered in an elected Congress and other governmental bodies established by the People under Common Law. – A Public Proclamation abolishing Crown Authority in Canada, January 15, 2015
Our course of action is clear if the words above become part of our very thought and fiber, and gather those of us so united by this vision into permanent legislative Assemblies where we covenant to establish a new form of law and government. Such an action, replicated in many communities across Kanata and the world, will constitute the real emergence of our Republic as it sets down its roots among the people. And then the real battle will begin.
Let us be very clear that by creating such a new authority alongside the old one – by drawing the shih of the old regime into our own sphere – we are entering into a state of civil war, both politically and spiritually. We are drawing a line and separating ourselves unalterably from the past by actively disestablishing the thing called Canada and crown law. The firmer our resolve and the more people we draw into our new Republic, the more peaceful will be this transition.
We can only undertake this monumental step collectively, through a new legal and political framework embodied in the Peoples’ Assemblies; for as legislative bodies, it is the Assemblies that can lawfully establish the Republican common law courts and create the laws that are the skeleton of our new society.
The People are the source of all law, government and sovereign authority. This foundational Republican principle means that any group of people who covenant together under an Oath can formulate, debate and pass laws which are binding on themselves and are enforceable, and subject to no other authority except that to which they agree. The Peoples’ Assemblies, once lawfully convened, are therefore wholly legitimate legislatures that are part of a new Republic. And one of the essential tasks of the Assemblies is to not only establish such a new local jurisdiction and shih, but to elect delegates to a national Congress of the Republic.
People, especially Canadians, have to relearn freedom by beginning to actually practice it, and reclaiming their own shih autonomy. The Assemblies provide a sure way for them to do so, as matters of community concern are discussed and resolved directly by the People in what are practical schools in self-government. When people feel the power of taking all matters into their own hands, and passing and enforcing laws in their own name, the Republic will become real as the old regime crumbles.
We began by observing how the present global tyranny is an energy sucking parasite whose ultimate consequence will be the eradication of life as we know it on mother earth. Our purpose, of shattering that entity and restoring natural law and life to our world, cannot be achieved without recognizing and winning back the essential energy that is drained from us through our participation in this global machinery of death. Our every thought and action must therefore be geared towards regaining this shih energy by establishing new courts, assemblies and communities utterly separate from the old institutions, to allow people to leave them once and for all.
Those of you readers who will be “more than hearers of the word, but doers as well”, are like a sharp point of a spear constantly poised for battle. You will create the first wedge through which many others will follow, provided that you remain sharp, clear and consistent. Because you will form the blueprint of a new society, what you do today and tomorrow is of sacred importance for the future of our people. If you waver or backslide, there will be no such future.
“For you have been set apart to bind the kings of the earth, and bring to judgement the nobles, and to bring to nothing their pride and power. This is the task given to the righteous remnant, so that all may know the truth and stand within the justice of God” – Psalm 149, and cited at the trial of King Charles by the High Court of Justice of the People in Parliament, January 1649

Punishment is now unfashionable. We prefer a meaningless collective guilt to a meaningful individual responsibility. - Thomas Szasz
The federal government conducted experiments on First Nations children in residential schools … One of the schools was located in Port Alberni. – Southam News Service, April 26, 2000
She was slightly older than me, but we would have been in the same grade in United Church Sunday school class, which we both attended as children. Every worship day, I wore a proper suit and tie and clutched my white offering envelope in which a single Canadian dollar would help fill the coffers of what the United Church still calls its “Mission and Service Fund”. But Vicky Sepass wore a shabby grey uniform and had nothing to put in the plate on Sundays, for she herself was the offering.
Church life for me began in Westworth United Church in a leafy Winnipeg suburb known as River Heights; but for Vicky, it began and ended within the dank walls of the Port Alberni Indian residential school. She died there sometime during March in the year 1965, when she and I were both nine years old.
I helped pay for her murder.
It may have taken a month for Vicky Sepass to starve to death in the special isolation ward where she was held without food and studied by military doctors as she wasted away. It was all part of an experiment to test human endurance to torture and trauma, arranged through an agreement between the United Church of Canada and the Defense Research Board in Ottawa. Test subjects were routinely raped, beaten and starved to death, and their responses and mental alacrity were carefully noted.
“They always raped me when they had me strapped down. Always. I got it every day like clockwork” remembers Kenny Quatell, who survived the same experiment at the United Church-run Nanaimo Indian Hospital.
The little white offering envelopes are still clutched every Sunday morning by the next young crop of unwitting killers. It’s still business as usual for the Mission and Service Fund, since of course the United Church got away with all of its atrocities, and made itself feel good and smug in the process. Normally, funds used for criminal purposes would be seized by the courts. But this is Canada, and the killers are still in charge.
After decades of battling this beast, and not changing it, I’ve realized what many “social activists” sense but rarely acknowledge: that we cannot bring down something that we ourselves are a part of. Rarely do we put ourselves in the equation of systemic evil, for the enemy, and the “real” problem, is always something and someone other than ourselves.
As for Vicky Sepass and all those other children who will die tomorrow at the hands of unaccountable power, they remain more than anything a legion of searching, implacable eyes, and an enormous and enduring question mark, directed at each one of us: but especially at all the slumbering United Church members who today keep funding the filth and its lies with a sweet hymn on their lips.
A public television network in the western United States has begun to regularly broadcast to several million viewers the video material of the common law – Republica of Kanata movement.
Here is the latest posting, now on youtube:
“We are elated over this” commented Colin Sullivan, the secretary of the Provisional Council for the Republic.
“We urge people everywhere to pressure their local public television networks to re-broadcast this material along with the work of the ITCCS and our common law affiliates.”
