Reflection: In Times like These

True Happiness in Times like These: The Lesson from my Fallen Uncle

by Kevin D. Annett

 Written on the 70th anniversary of his death for another

 

Sub.Lt. Robert I.L. Annett (author’s uncle), front row, third from right (killed in action)

He comprehends his trust, and to the same keeps faithful with a singleness of aim;

And therefore does not stoop, nor lie in wait for wealth, or honours, or for worldly state, or mild concerns of ordinary life;

But who, if he be called upon to face some awful moment to which Heaven has joined great issues, good or bad for human kind, Is happy as a Lover; and attired with sudden brightness, like a Man inspired.

He to whom neither shape of danger can dismay, nor thought of tender happiness betray; Who, not content that former worth stand fast, looks forward, persevering to the last.

Or if he must fall to sleep without his fame, and leave a dead unprofitable name, finds comfort in himself and in his cause;

And, while the mortal mist is gathering, draws His breath in confidence of Heaven’s applause:

This is the happy Warrior; this is he whom every Man in arms should wish to be.

- “The Happy Warrior” by William Wordsworth, 1770-1850

…….

My father is the only one in the faded photograph who still draws breath.

He was a boy of fifteen when the family photo was taken: the day before his eldest brother Bob left forever to serve as the youngest officer on the doomed Canadian destroyer HMCS Athabaskan.

My younger father stares soberly into the camera, bearing the same troubled look as every other member of his family, save one: nineteen year old Bob himself, whose easy and gentle smile seems untouched by the war that waits to engulf him.

One of the sailors who survived the Germans’ torpedoing of the Athabaskan seven decades ago this evening, on April 29, 1944, described, later, how Bob wore the same confident radiance in the dark and icy waters of the English Channel as men died about him. He recalls how Bob tried leading the ship’s survivors in song to keep their spirits and them alive, as the ship sank and the waters burned with diesel oil.

And in the midst of the carnage, Bob actually gave up his life jacket to a wounded man.

Last week, I held the old Annett family photograph in my hands as my Dad sipped his scotch and remembered his last memory of brother Bob.

“He could have spent his embarkation leave in town, whooping it up, or seeing his fiancee Elaine. But instead he drove out to see me, his kid brother, and he roused me out of bed and wrestled with me and cheered me up. He was that kind of a guy”.

I gazed at the snapshot and said,

“From the looks of all of you, it’s like you all knew he was going to die”

Dad nodded, and replied softly, and unashamedly awed,

“And look at his smile”

To those accustomed to the sluggish death we like to call peace time, the highest concern one can bestow on another is the admonition to “Be safe”. Even my closest friends tell me that all the time, as if safeguarding one’s own life is some kind of bottom line. It wasn’t for my Uncle Bob, nor is it for anyone like him who discovers the secret of life.

The same people who puzzle over how Bob is the only one smiling in that final photograph are the same ones who comment with regret that Bob died because he gave away his life jacket, as if it would have been possible for him to do anything else when faced with another man drowning from his wounds.

The desperate selfishness of “everyday” life spares us the chance to be fully human that is thrust so starkly upon on us by war. And so far too many of us go away sad and troubled by the actions of shining lights like my Uncle Bob, never understanding the drama: like the crowd who encountered Jesus on his cross and saw only bloodshed.

How habitually do we struggle to shore up the unsalvageable – our own mortal life – and refuse to live for that one moment when we find our real purpose in life by giving up our life entirely for what is right and necessary.

Perhaps Bob was so radiant in that final family photograph because he knew that his own special moment was approaching; and knowing his own measure and loving what he saw, he knew he would not fail. As for the others in the picture, how could their sadness be anything but their knowledge that they could not share in Bob’s moment?

We do not live in a time of peace, as much as we pretend we do. The war in which we are all now immersed, like all wars, is rapidly clarifying everything with the same simple truth, and choice, given to my Uncle Bob in the cold waters: If we do not act, others will die.

The particular happiness of true warriors is that they can devote every moment to the service of that deed, which is after all, the essential thing. And for those who shrink back from such necessary action, there is no remedy, and no ultimate happiness.

That is why I can’t understand or give consideration any longer to the multitudes of “concerned” but immobilized people who shrink back from doing what is necessary to save not only the lives of children, but our lands and our liberties, now, amidst this final war being waged against humanity by a global machinery of death.

At desperate moments like this, hope does come to us, but always at a great cost.

What does awaken us are living examples of a true man, or woman, who show that we are not measured by our capacity to “Be safe”, but rather, to be True, regardless of the cost.

That is the secret of Bob’s smile, and of my own: a reflection of the special opportunity granted to every human being, which no tyrant can rob from us, and no cataclysm can undo.

Will you seize that noble chance?

Republic to be Proclaimed in Canada, January 1-4, 2015

A Special Communique from The Provisional Council of The Republic of Kanata (Winnipeg)

October 22, 2014

 

Dear fellow lovers of liberty,

A great awakening is shaking our nation, as more people realize that “Canada” and its criminal sponsors and their laws are null and void. This growing awareness about the need for a Republic of Kanata has swelled our membership to over three hundred men and women in every region of “Canada”. And to accommodate and prepare these members and their delegates, our Council has had to move the date of the Republic’s founding Constitutional Convention in Winnipeg to January 1-4, 2015.

Pre-Convention material will be mailed to all of you before then, including copies of the new draft Proclamation of Independence, and Kanata’s proposed Constitution.

Our new Republic is as strong and real as each of us make it. That’s why local organizing committees for the Republic are active in the five main regions of “Canada”, uniting, educating and mobilizing the people to take back and reclaim their country within the ranks of the Republican movement.

These committees are based in Vancouver, Calgary, Toronto, Montreal and Halifax. If you have not been connected with your local Republic organizers yet, please notify us immediately at republicofkanata@gmail.com . Also watch our website at www.republicofkanata.com .

Our work now focuses on educating people about our vision and principles, and launching direct actions to reclaim our land and its laws. In this regard, a small handbook and youtube posting is being prepared, entitled “Five Ways you Can Build the Republic of Kanata”. These ways include taking the Public Oath to the Republic, issuing Stand Down or Revocation Orders to all “crown” officials, refusing to pay taxes to the criminal state known as Canada, and organizing public Reclamations of so called “crown land” that has been stolen from the people.

As we take back our country and create working alternatives to the collapsing status quo, many more people will join us. The point is to start the process, now.

Monthly updates will follow. Spread the word, and Long live the Republic!

“He’ll never get out of here”: Common Law activist Dean Clifford adopted as International Prisoner of Conscience after his year long incarceration without charges or trial in a Canadian prison

Breaking ITCCS News, October 10, 2014 (Brussels)

Dean Clifford, Canadian Political Prisoner

Brussels, October 10, 2014

The ITCCS Directorate today adopted Canadian common law activist Dean Clifford as an International Prisoner of Conscience and began campaigning for his immediate release from “barbaric police state conditions”. The ITCCS will be presenting a formal petition of Habeas Corpus to Canadian courts to secure his release.

Clifford was arrested without a warrant or charges in November, 2013 while giving a public talk on common law rights. Since then, he has been confined incommunicado in a Brandon, Manitoba prison, where he has been routinely denied the right to appear in court, file petitions or seek Habeas Corpus relief.

This week, a sheriff at the prison told Clifford’s wife,

Dean will never get out of here”.

Clifford has been a prominent common law educator for years in Canada, challenging the arbitrary unlawfulness of Canadian law and the “crown” court system. He is also a supporter of the ITCCS and the common law court movement.

Everything indicates that Dean Clifford is being deliberately targeted and persecuted by the Canadian government and made a public example of for his exposure of the illegality of the crown courts” said ITCCS North American Field Secretary Kevin Annett today.

Simply for demanding the proof that he’s obligated under Natural Law to pay taxes or obey arbitrary statutes, Dean has been locked away without a fair trial for a year, family members are denied access to him, and his basic Habeas Corpus rights and due process have been thrown right out the window. None of us is safe if they can do this to one honest man. Dean’s persecution as a political prisoner is showing us why we need to stand down all crown authority and create a new nation here.”

On behalf of the ITCCS, Annett announced that a common law court is being convened in Brandon this month to bring charges against those responsible for Dean’s unlawful incarceration. He also disclosed that a nation wide campaign to release Dean Clifford will commence this week, including public protests and occupations by ITCCS and common law activists across Canada. 

ITCCS Central is asking all of its affiliates in nineteen countries to stage similar actions outside and inside Canadian consulates and businesses around the world on behalf of Dean Clifford and the common law.

For information how you can assist, contact itccscentral@gmail.com , or republicofkanata@gmail.com .

This Statement is endorsed by the Provisional Council for the Republic of Kanata in Winnipeg.

Possible ITCCS source in Ottawa police dies suddenly after “incident”: “Ndrangheta may be clearing house” – Brussels

Ottawa:

Staff Sergeant Kal Ghadban, head of the human trafficking unit of the Ottawa police and a possible supporter of the recent ITCCS “take down” of a Ninth Circle cult ritual in Montreal, died suddenly last Sunday at the Elgin street police station. Ottawa police are claiming he took his own life after suffering “serious injuries” following an “incident”, but have released no evidence of the circumstances around his death.

Ghadban was a married man with three children, with no history of depression or mental illness. He was rated by senior Ottawa police as an “impeccable and trustworthy policeman”.

The ITCCS central office has confirmed today that members of the Ottawa police did cooperate with their counterparts in Montreal in providing intelligence and logistical support to the ITCCS Direct Action “Alpha Unit” on August 15, when the Unit disrupted a planned ritual sacrifice by the catholic Ninth Circle cult at a wealthy home in Outremount.
“We are not free at this time to confirm whether Sergeant Ghadban was a direct part of our effort but it is safe to say that he knew of our actions and did nothing to impede them” said the Commander of the Alpha team today from Brussels.

“Personally, I think Ghadban’s death was a killing and it proves that Ndrangheta may be clearing house.”

The criminal syndicate Ndrangheta, based in Italy and tied closely to the Vatican, provides children for sacrificial rituals and human trafficking networks across the world. It has been named in a recent common law court case brought by the ITCCS against Pope Francis and other convicted felons.

The ITCCS central office is conducting a thorough investigation of Sergeant Ghadban’s death and will be issuing its own report, as part of the ongoing shut down of child trafficking and sacrificial murder.

European Police join ITCCS take down of Ndrangheta, Vatican, Cargill and other child killers

A Breaking Interview with Kevin Annett, September 27, 2014:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SJ_JChovG9M&feature=youtu.be

VANCOUVER, BC – In an Exopolitics TV interview with Alfred Lambremont Webre, Kevin Annett, Field Secretary of the International Tribunal into Crimes of Church and State (ITCCS) discussed European police raids this week that freed thirty children from traffickers. The raids were based in part on evidence provided by ITCCS and its recent common law court cases.

Police in at least three European nations are now working directly with the ITCCS to track worldwide child trafficking networks that feed children directly into Ninth circle Satanic sacrifices by Popes and Vatican officials, the British, Dutch and Belgian monarchies and high government officials, and Satanic corporations such as Cargill Corporation, and to make further arrests.

Kevin Annett also gave updates about the Vatican’s protection of Archbishop Jozef Wesolowski, a Ninth Circle cult participant who has been accused of sexually abusing boys he met on the street while serving in the Dominican Republic.

Republic of Kanata and Republic of England

Kevin Annett announced new dates for the the Republic of Kanata convention scheduled for January 1-4, 2015 in Winnipeg, and the Republic of England Convention, scheduled for May 1, 2015 in London.

European police arrest more than 1000 criminals using ITCCS evidence of Ndrangheta and catholic child trafficking

Brussels:

The ITCCS central office has confirmed today that some of the police raids that have freed thirty children from traffickers were based on evidence provided by ITCCS and its recent common law court cases. Police in at least three European nations are now working directly with the ITCCS to track child trafficking networks and make further arrests. A complete report will be issued later this week.

New Attacks and other consequences of our exposure of child murder by European elites

A Breaking Update from ITCCS Central: September 15, 2014
Brussels:

Our global network is advised that some of our key front line workers are facing new threats and attacks this week following our publicizing of the exclusive testimony of Anne Marie van Blijenburgh, regarding child sacrificial practices of European royalty and other elites. (see www.itccs.org, September 10)

Two of our Belgian researchers were picked up and interrogated on September 11 by the police, and detained without charges for over a day. They were repeatedly asked by the police for information about the identity of our Tribunal officers and the movements of our North American Field Secretary Kevin Annett.

Kevin Annett himself is now under close protection after experiencing what appears to be an attempted assassination of him in Canada that occurred last Saturday, September 13. The car he was using had its brake lines cut and he narrowly avoided a major, lethal accident on a highway in British Columbia.

This attack confirms a report we received last month that an assassination order against Kevin has been issued by Ndrangheta, the criminal syndicate named in our postings that provides children for the Ninth Circle catholic sacrificial rituals.

Kevin and our Office regret the cancellation of his scheduled meetings with some of our common law and Republic chapters in Canada resulting from this recent attack. We assure all of our groups that Kevin will resume his meetings with all of you during the coming fortnight, as he will with the Irish, German, British and other chapters that are awaiting Kevin’s scheduled arrival in Europe in early October.

These attacks are simply more proof of the success we are having in exposing child killers in high places. Stay tuned for more updates.

Update interview: British Crown stopped in their effort to arrest Kevin Annett; new ITCCS offensive against corporate backers of child trafficking

VIDEO-Kevin Annett: British Crown & Ireland attempt arrest to stop ITCCS action on 800 sacrificed babies, and more

VANCOUVER, BC , August 30, 2014 –

In an ExopoliticsTV interview with Alfred Lambremont Webre, Kevin Annett stated today that the British Crown issued an extradition order to the Government of Ireland to arrest him while he was to have been in Ireland working on the ITCCS investigation of the 800 babies ritually sacrificed and murdered at Tuam, Ireland. This extradition was in fact motivated to stop the ITCCS action to prosecute guilty parties in the Tuam baby sacrifices, including the reigning Cardinal of Ireland, Sean Brady, and to prevent further ITCCS investigation and enforcement of its verdicts against Popes Francis Bergoglio and Benedict Ratzinger for Ninth Circle Satanic child sacrifice.

Kevin Annett, who plans to return to Brussels and Germany for further ITCCS operations, stated that it appears that the planned arrest actions have now actually strengthened ITCCS operations world wide, with the appointment of Field Secretaries in Western Europe, Australia and Asia, and North America, and a world-wide membership of 800 involved in Common Law Court and Common Law Sheriff Enforcement and Investigative activities.

ITCCS Actions against Satanic Corporate Sector

Kevin Annett discussed ITCCS actions that are now planned against corporate defendants that were implicated in the disruption of an August 15, 2014 planned Satanic sacrifice in Montreal by ITCCS Direct Action Units. These defendants include Cargill Corporation, where Satanic rituals has been held in corporate headquarters according to participants who have come forward. Cargill is “is now the largest privately held corporation in the United States in terms of revenue.

Republic of Kanata

Kevin Annett also discussed the Republic of Kanata convention in Saskatchewan, Oct. 27 – 31, 2014.

Impending ​Irish ​Arrest and Extradition of Kevin Annett on verge of Tuam Killing​s​ Inquiry:

An Urgent Bulletin from the International Tribunal into Crimes of Church and State (ITCCS) and its Direct Action Unit in Ireland

August 28, 2014

Dublin
​​
The Irish government has agreed to extradite Kevin Annett to England to face imprisonment when he arrives in Ireland this weekend, according to information obtained through our sources in Ireland’s national police, the Garda​i.​

The same sources indicate that Kevin’s arrest and transportation to a “special administrative prison” in London has been ordered in response to the plan by him and our Brussels-based Common Law Court to open an independent inquiry into the apparent sacrificial murder of children at Tuam, Ireland, commencing on Monday, September 1. These killings have been linked to the catholic-run Ninth Circle cult that includes popes, cardinals and members of the British royal family and Church of England.

In response to this new attack, Kevin Annett has agreed to reschedule his September travel itinerary to temporarily avoid Ireland and any country under so-called “crown of England” jurisdiction, and to accept additional security protection. However, the independent inquiry into the Tuam mass graves and ritual murders in Ireland will proceed ​as scheduled ​
under the auspices of the Common Law court being established in Galway, as part of the September 1 commencement of our Permanent Inquiry into Child Trafficking and Ritual Sacrifice.

For more information on the Inquiry and the Galway common law court case into the Tuam killings, contact itccscentral@gmail.com .

Report from the Joint Consultation of the Directorate of the International Tribunal into Crimes of Church and State (ITCCS) and the Common Law Court of Justice Held in Brussels and New York City August 20-24, 2014

Issued to all Common Law Court groups and their affiliates, including the Provisional Council for the Republic of Kanata and the Covenanted Congregationalists

Overview and Synopsis

The Tribunal and Court Directorate, its staff officers and Field Secretaries met in Brussels and New York this past week to review its work and plan the coming year’s actions.

With the successful prosecution of its second litigation against top church and state officials for crimes against humanity (www.itccs.org 19 July, 2014), the Court has established a Permanent Commission of Inquiry into Child Trafficking and Ritual Sacrifice that will convene on September 1, 2014. All affiliates are urged to work actively with the Commission to continue the prosecution of culpable individuals and institutions.

The attempted arrests of convicted felons Jorge Bergoglio (aka “Pope Francis”), Adolfo Pachon and Justin Welby, and the successful disruption of their Ninth Circle sacrificial ritual in Montreal, Canada on August 15, has compelled the upcoming resignation or removal of Bergoglio: the second deposing of a pope indicted by our Court since February, 2013.

The August 15 disruption has yielded hard evidence of the Ninth Circle sacrifices and their participants: evidence which is presently being analyzed by our Court and will be published as part of our ongoing Commission into ritual sacrifice. The Montreal cult member who has agreed to work with our Court has already identified the locations and dates of other upcoming rituals, which will be targeted and disrupted by our Direct Action Units, and their participants arrested and held for prosecution.

Since February 2013, and building on these successful convictions and actions, affiliated common law courts and common law education groups have been established now in nine countries: Canada, the USA, Ireland, England, Belgium, Holland, Germany, New Zealand and Australia, under the coordination of three Field Secretaries: Kevin Annett (North America), George Dufort (Western Europe) and Cameron Mottus (Asia and Australia-New Zealand). Over 800 people are now active in these local groups.

These courts have commenced the indictment of government, church and corporate officials in their respective countries for human rights violations, mortgage fraud, criminal conspiracy, child trafficking and murder, and betrayal of their oaths of public office. Some of the more successful common law groups, such as in Coventry, England, have gathered hundreds of people in conferences and public actions.

In the USA, where over one third of our volunteers are based in 31 states, five serving county sheriffs and their deputies are active with us in establishing and safeguarding common law courts.

In Canada and England, nation-wide movements have been established under our auspices to depose and replace “crown” law and authority, through the creation of Constitutional Republics that can serve as the lawful basis for common law courts. The Republic of Kanata will be lawfully proclaimed in Winnipeg, Canada on October 31, 2014, after a delegated Convention adopts a new Constitution for the nation. A similar development is expected in England and Australia during 2015.

It has been noted by our Field Secretaries that most of the local groups are absorbed in the details of organizing courts and are missing the broader vision and basis for the courts themselves. In particular, the majority of our local common law groups in Canada, England and Australia-New Zealand have failed to grasp that without such a replacement of so-called “crown” jurisdiction by a Republican constitution and nation, there can be no lawful basis for de jure common law courts in their respective countries.

It is therefore ordered that every common law group in these “commonwealth” countries affiliate and link their work to the Republican movements, and to the practical effort to bring about constitutional Republics to replace the law and authority of the “crown”, including by participating in the constitutional Republican conventions.

In this regard, a brief organizational report from the Provisional Council for the Republic of Kanata is included, below.

Finally, it is noted and welcomed that alongside the political deposing of the criminal body known as the “Crown of England” has emerged a synonymous movement to spiritually depose the Vatican and corporate Christendom. This movement has coalesced under the general banner of Covenanted Congregationalism, or The Covenanters, which is seeking to rally Christians under a new allegiance separate from the crimes and perversions of the church of Rome and its affiliates. Our Tribunal is working actively with this movement, which is based in the USA, Canada and England. (see the American movement at www.covenantedcommunity.org)

New Directions and Procedures

The disappearance and assumed murder of one of our Court’s key investigators on July 3, the harassment and arrest by Belgian authorities of politicians sympathetic to our work such as Belgian M.P. Laurent Louis, and an apparent “kill order” issued against Kevin Annett and other key Court officials by the Ndrangheta criminal syndicate, have compelled new procedures.

Kevin Annett, a prominent public spokesman for our movement, will be travelling across Europe during September, but according to a new, tightened security protocol. Henceforth Kevin will travel accompanied by a party of trained security personnel, media groups and advisers, and will conduct only by-invitation gatherings with the core organizers in each region and country. His itinerary will include Ireland, England, France, Belgium, Holland, Germany and Italy. Invitations and requests for Kevin must be addressed only to and approved by the central ITCCS office at itccscentral@gmail.com .

The Central Command of our movement will continue to operate anonymously and independently of all of our public sections. Media interviews will not be granted by any member of the Directorate or the Court. Our acting Field Secretaries will have the sole authority to speak publicly on behalf of the entire movement, with the approval of the Directorate.

The key evidence that convicted all of the felons in both of our Common Law trials, and the evidence gathered by our August 15 “take down” of the Montreal sacrificial ritual, will be available in a screened form no later than September 15, 2014. Copies of this evidence can be obtained through the Central Office, with the approval of the Directorate.

Finally, a central operational fund has been established by the Tribunal to pay for the travel and daily costs of our Field Secretaries and the most active local groups. Requests for such funding along with a detailed budget may be submitted to itccscentral@gmail.com .

In closing, the daily organizational work of every local group must now be systematized under the direction of one local Convenor who is a liaison with the central office or the appropriate Field Secretary. The Convenor must issue a monthly report to us and involve all local members in joint weekly public actions and organizational meetings.

It is the task of the Convenor to ensure that our work to stop crimes by murderous institutions becomes continual and effective in local communities. Only the most dedicated and clear minded man or woman can fulfil this key operational command role in our movement.

May all of our members and activists take their own initiatives and audaciously prosecute criminals of church and state, and their corporate allies, in the months ahead. The world is watching us.
