The worst thing to come out of all this is that Bernie Saunders threw away the best chance in the last century to launch a progressive third party in America. We still need to do that, with or without him. -Saunders delegate to the Democratic National Convention, July 27, 2016

I do not want you to follow me or anyone else; if you are looking for a Moses to lead you out of this capitalist wilderness, you will stay right where you are. I would not lead you into the promised land if I could, because if I led you in, some one else would lead you out. You must use your heads as well as your hands, and get yourself out of your present condition. - Eugene Debs, Socialist Party of America Presidential Candidate, 1908

…………………

Pundits high and low have already whipped out their political scalpels to dissect the perhaps not unexpected collapse of Senator Bernie Saunders and his more naïve followers into the entrails of the Democratic Party. Such an operation is not only premature but misdiagnosed, for it dwells on a figurehead and not a phenomena.

Forget about Bernie Saunders. What compelled him to betray the hopes of thirteen million progressive Americans is anybody’s guess, and no doubt will be critiqued to death for years by internet commentators who would rather talk than act. What matters to us is what those thirteen million men and women represent, and the future they may embody.

Nothing like those millions has emerged in America since the Populist movement of the early 20th century, when farmers and laborers directly challenged the two big money parties and the financial oligarchs that run them. One of the peoples’ champions of that time, a railway worker from Indiana named Eugene Debs, declared that their movement embodied a fight for the very soul of America. Today’s progressive movement is of the same revolutionary promise because of its potential to unite all marginalized Americans in a massive cross-party force to wrest the nation back from a war-making corporate elite, and to redefine America in the process.

Understand that we are not talking about a new electoral machine but a revolutionary movement to not only reclaim America but transform its very spirit and substance into the free egalitarian society envisioned by the Founders. And like all true revolutions, this one has already been born first in the hearts and minds of the people, to paraphrase John Adams. It has arisen from out of the depths of a great misery and discontent that is sweeping the nation.

The corporate oligarchy’s two political arms – the Democratic and Republican parties – are doing their best to capture that discontent and define it in terms that will serve the Corporatocracy that has replaced the American Republic. It can be argued that Bernie Saunders performed precisely such a service by capturing and channeling some of that popular outrage back into the Democrats.

Regardless, no amount of back room political intrigue can derail a discontent so huge, provided that it finds its own mind, voice and leadership. And therein lies the challenge.

As that keen observer of Americans, Alexis de Tocqueville, observed in his work Democracy in America,

Americans are constantly excited by two conflicting passions; they want to be led, and they wish to remain free: they strive to satisfy them both at once. They devise a sole, tutelary, and all-powerful form of government, but elected by the people. They combine the principle of centralization and that of popular sovereignty, and console themselves for being in bondage by the reflection that they have chosen their own guardians. By this system the American people shake off their state of dependence just long enough to select their master, and then relapse into it again. Yet he who consents to obey others, who submits his will, and even his thoughts, to their control, how can he pretend that he wishes to be free?”

A people reared to look to authority figures, to live and think vicariously through political “leaders” who are controlled invisibly and beyond their reach, are functional slaves. Regardless of the militancy of their words or program, they are unable to acquire their own outlook and power short of a profound shock that snaps their umbilical chord to the system. Bernie Saunders’ abject surrender to the Democratic Establishment provided such a shock to at least some of his followers, who are searching now for a third party alternative. And yet most of the millions who looked to Saunders to usher in a new America still seem like a gaggle of confused and directionless chickens, if their public remarks mean anything.

Growing up is never an easy thing to do, especially in a culture like ours that instills fear and infantile dependency into all of us from day one. And yet the unquenchable discontent of many Americans remains, and yearns to find its own mature power and expression not defined by the nation’s stale unipolar politics. To do so, their new American revolution must seek out and drink from the source of its vitality: that heart which Alexis de Tocqueville described in 1832:

I sought for the greatness and genius of America in her commodious harbors and her ample rivers – and it was not there . . . in her rich mines and her vast world commerce – and it was not there . . . in her democratic Congress and her matchless Constitution – and it was not there. Not until I went into the churches of America and heard her pulpits aflame with righteousness did I understand the secret of her genius and power. America is great because she is good, and if America ever ceases to be good, she will cease to be great.”

Rarely is personal and civic virtue a topic in mainstream political discourse, nor is it seen as a necessary preliminary to liberty, as John Adams and other Founders continually stressed. But the truth is that without a moral awakening and the recovery of goodness within and among us, broader social change, let alone revolution, is unimaginable. It was such a revival known as the evangelical Great Awakening of the 1740′s and ’50′s that formed the hearts of the people who made the American Revolution. Then or now, against the brutality of a system gone mad with greed and violence, the sons and daughters of liberty are armed first and foremost by their capacity for goodness: for compassion, a love of what is true, and a refusal to dwell alongside evil and allow oppression and wrong to strike at any one of us.

These virtues form the basis of the program of our new American Revolution, which is rooted in the Natural Law and its three great maxims: No-one is subject to another, no-one has any right to more than another, and none shall do harm to another. When translated politically, these maxims give rise to three corresponding aims of Liberty, Equality and Peace.

By Liberty, we mean nothing less than the restoration of the constitutional Republic of the United States of America and the common law upon which it rests: a Republic in which every man and woman is sovereign and subject to nothing but the common law. To reclaim the Republic, we must disestablish the rule-by-fiat corporate tyranny that runs the government and the courts behind the mask of an American flag.

By Equality, we mean the de-corporatizing of America and an end to the rule of the “one percent”. The financial oligarchy who rule the nation must be as thoroughly dethroned as was King George III, and the wealth of the nation returned to all the people.

And by Peace, we mean the de-militarizing of America and the returning of power to the people through their own citizen militias and courts. An end, in short, to the military-industrial complex and its distortion of America into a permanent war economy and society.

A movement that pursues these goals to the end will win the allegiance of that great unspoken mass of discontented and sidelined Americans, and wrench a broad swath of poor and working people away from the clutches of Republicans and Democrats alike. Such a new alignment around a truly revolutionary third party in America will begin to break the corporate stranglehold and ignite the same flame that defeated the biggest Empire in the world in 1783.

For those who doubt this dream and call it an unwinnable battle, I draw their memories back to 1776 and a remnant few hundred patriot soldiers at Valley Forge, Pennsylvania, caught in a winter as deep as our own. Amidst their own defeatism and despair, a poor immigrant named Thomas Paine proclaimed to them these words that carried forward their spirits and the American revolution to final victory:

Where others see now only risk, I see opportunity. But those who expect to reap the blessings of freedom must undergo the labor of supporting it. I love the man that can smile in trouble, gather strength from distress, and grow brave from endurance. ‘Tis the business of small minds to shrink from conflict, but he whose heart is firm, whose conscience approves his conduct, will pursue his principles unto death. We have it in our power to begin the world over again.”

Let us search for America in the virtue that rests in the hearts of its people, and the liberty that reaches out from there to claim back the nation that was stolen. Let us begin.

The Purpose and Nature of our Struggle by Kevin D. Annett

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.

Conclusions

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

The Republic of Kanata and its Common Law: The Facts

Ten Basic Questions and Answers

republic of kanata
  1. What is the Republic of Kanata?

A sovereign nation of many nations that have broken free from the British monarchy and its tyrannical system of “crown law”.

Kanata is convened under a public Proclamation of January 15, 2015 that establishes it as a constitutional republic under the common law. The Republic has over 1,000 founding signatories but reflects the wishes of nearly 60% of Canadians, who when polled in 2013 favored an end to all ties with the British monarchy.

The Republic of Kanata is also the fulfillment of the aspirations of the first patriots who attempted unsuccessfully to create such a Canadian Republic in 1837. “Kanata” is an Iroquois word meaning “our communal village”.

 

  1. Is the Republic of Kanata an actual lawful government?

Yes. Its founding Constitution disestablished the political authority of the British crown in Canada and replaced it with a sovereign nation consisting of free, self governing people. The legal legitimacy and jurisdiction of the Republic was created by an Act of Supremacy in its first General Congress, which established a High Court of Justice to administer the common law everywhere in the new nation. The authority of all former agents and officials of the crown was formally revoked by this Act.

   3. How does the new Republic affect my life?

Freedom from Debt Slavery: You are now freed from all of your former debts, mortgages and taxes, which were declared legally null and void by the Constitution of the Republic. Any attempt by agents of the old regime of “Canada” to collect such debts or coerce you are now illegal acts, and the perpetrators can be arrested by Republican sheriffs and tried for treason by the common law courts of the new Republic. All banks, credit and money supply are now under the control of the people.

No income tax: Abolished under the new Constitution.

Prosperity: You are eligible to receive up to two hundred hectares of land formerly held by the so called “crown”, as well as a guaranteed annual income from the wealth formerly hoarded by the crown agencies and their super-rich corporate partners.

Justice: You now have direct control over the law and the courts of the land by electing their judges, juries and sheriffs.

Direct Democracy: If you are sixteen years or older, you can now vote in elections every two years to the General Congress and every year to local governing bodies. You can also now recall any elected or non elected public official, judge or sheriff who has violated their oath of office or lost the confidence of the people.

  1. What is the common law?

The basis of all legitimate government and authority. It is inherent in all men and women and establishes them as unconditionally free, self governing and sovereign people whose life and liberty cannot be subverted by any power.

The common law is superior to and outweighs all government statutes and other legal systems such as church “canon law” and so-called “admiralty law” employed by governments to rule arbitrarily. “The common law is common sense written by God in the hearts of the people” (Justice Edward Coke, 1628)

  1. Are common law courts legal and valid?

Yes. Their authority and legitimacy as upholders of the rights of the people is recognized by the United States Supreme Court as well as Canadian “crown” courts, which are descended from the English common law tradition. That tradition recognizes that the people themselves are the best guarantors of their own freedom; and that therefore, the law is upheld and defined by citizen juries and enforced by local county sheriffs beholden to the people and not a central government.

  1. Who is Kevin Annett and what is his role in the Republic?

Kevin is a leader of the common law and Republic movement, and of the International Tribunal into Crimes of Church and State (ITCCS). He serves as a special adviser in common law to the Republican government and works actively with many victims of crimes against humanity, in Kanata and around the world. He is also the Convener of District One (West Coast) in the Republic.

Kevin is also a Nobel Peace Prize Nominee and award winning author and human rights figure. Born and bred on the prairies and west coast, Kevin is the former United Church minister who first exposed and documented genocide by church and crown in the Indian schools.

  1. How do I go about joining the Republic and getting involved?

The Republic of Kanata is a fact: as of January 15, 2015, you live within its common law jurisdiction anywhere on the territory of the former “Dominion of Canada”. However, you can declare your formal citizenship within the Republic by taking a Pledge to the Republican constitution and receiving official identification as a member of the Republic, including a passport and citizenship papers. You can also take an oath of office as a sheriff or other public official, and become involved in your local branch and District, by contacting republicofkanata@gmail.com .

  1. Do indigenous nations have to be a part of the new Republic?

No. If any genuine indigenous nation decides unanimously not to be affiliated with the Republic, they may legally secede and establish their own separate nation within the general Federation of the Republic. However, the indigenous nation may not create laws or practices that violate the Constitution and common law of the Republic. If the indigenous nation remains within the Republic, they will have guaranteed representation in a separate Chamber of Indigenous Nations within the General Congress.

  1. Am I at risk under the new Republic?

There are risks involved in any freedom movement. But the law and the people are with us, and more police are coming over to our jurisdiction every day alongside our growing network of sworn common law sheriffs.

Your liberty and security will be guaranteed the more you make the Republic a reality by your own refusal to participate in the old system called “crown law” and “Canada”. Turn away from the old and reclaim the land, the law and the future, for all of us.

  1. What do I do next?

    • Take the pledge to the Republic

    • Join your nearest Republican branch and help educate and mobilize your family and neighbors for the Republic

    • Stop paying taxes and mortgage payments, and issue our Revocation Order to all government and corporate agencies and agents

    • Receive training as a common law sheriff or peace officer

    • Defend your fellow members of the Republic

Historic Common Law Grand Jury to convene January 15, 2015

Breaking Historic Joint Communique from the Office of the Central ITCCS Directorate and the Republic of Kanata

The International Tribunal into Crimes of Church and State (ITCCS)

Avenue des Nerviens , Belgium 1040 Bruxelles

December 17, 2014

Vancouver targeted for new criminal investigation:

Historic Common Law Grand Jury will investigate murders, child trafficking and “black ops” by Ndrangheta-Vatican, under Republic’s jurisdiction

Directorate reaffirms its support for Kevin Annett

Brussels:

Decades of unsolved murders, disappearances and systemic child trafficking will be the subject of the first Common Law Grand Jury ever convened in Canada, commencing January 15, 2015.

Established by the Republic of Kanata’s new constitutional jurisdiction which will be invoked on January 1, a High Court of Justice will launch the Grand Jury inquiry that will “definitely lead to indictments and convictions of some of the top child killers in Canada and the world”, according to a spokeswoman for the ITCCS Central Directorate.

Among the issues to be investigated by the Common Law Grand Jury are:

  • the Pacific Rim child trafficking and “snuff film” industry, and its ties to the Canadian, Thai and Chinese governments

  • Catholic and Ndrangheta Ninth Circle sacrificial practices among west coast indigenous people, and the unsolved disappearance of over two hundred aboriginal women in British Columbia

  • the regime of “institutionalized pedophilia” and child killing operating among church, police, business and judicial leaders in the so-called “Twelve Mile Club” and the Vancouver Club

  • the unsolved murder of six aboriginal ITCCS activists in Vancouver between 2009 and 2014

  • ongoing “black ops” attacks against ITCCS leaders including Kevin Annett by Ndrangheta-paid operatives in Vancouver

ITCCS Central Directorate officers, and observers from police agencies in the United States and Europe, will assist the Grand Jury, which will operate under the protection of sworn common law sheriffs authorized by the Republic of Kanata.

In conjunction with its inquiry, the ITCCS Central Diretorate will sponsor a media event and documentary film known as “Unrelenting: Twenty Years in Pursuit of the Assassins”, to commence on January 23, 2015: the 20th anniversary of the firing without cause of Rev. Kevin Annett by the United Church of Canada.

This whole massive inquiry into genocide and child murder really began on that day, as it led to everything that we’ve achieved so far” commented Kevin Annett today from an undisclosed location.

The world needs to be constantly reminded of what we’ve achieved and how the reign of terror against our children by church, state and the Mob has never stopped”.

In related news, the ITCCS Central Directorate in Brussels released the following addendum statement today,

In light of recent assaults on the work and character of our North American Field Secretary Kevin Annett, the Directorate wishes to publicly reaffirm its unqualified support for and confidence in Rev. Annett. Such attacks on him by paid operatives and their dupes are a sign of the effectiveness of Kevin’s work and the sterling quality of his own integrity and courage.

Our Directorate has made it a priority to investigate more deeply these attacks when its officers are in Vancouver in the new year, based on startling new evidence given to our office regarding the source of these attacks.”

Further information will be released shortly.

Dear Mr. Webre,

Recent actions by you and your associates, as well as disturbing evidence brought to our attention, have caused the ITCCS Central Directorate to lose confidence in your motives and objectivity in relation to both the work of our Tribunal and its courts, and our North American Field Secretary Kevin Annett.

Accordingly, the Directorate advises you to have legal representation present when two of our officers will meet with you in Vancouver in mid January, as part of the Grand Jury being convened by us, which is described herein.

The new and upcoming public disclosures of our work that will be issued by our Directorate will occur at the public media conference on January 23, 2015 described herein. We decline any private media interviews with you or your associates.

Sincerely,

Marie Bouchard on behalf of the Central Directorate
