Constellations in the Heavens

“Recognize what is in your sight, and that which is hidden from you will become plain to you.  For there is nothing hidden which will not become manifest.”
            Jesus, The Gospel of Thomas

Hello again world; welcome to my Eighth blog; the 8th in my educational series to you!

"The truth will set you free, but first it will make you miserable".
James Garfield 1831-1881, 20th U.S. President

The Beginning of The Hidden Mysteries Revealed

I wish to emphasize a point that while some items will resolve themselves within the bible as you read the chapters and verses, that is, the bible deciphers itself, you will NEVER, EVER, solve many of the larger questionable and puzzling items without venturing outside the bible itself, meaning, you must have some understanding of the numerous scientific fields of study to gain a “gestalt,” an organized whole that is perceived as more than the sum of its parts.

By reading a variety of the science information, at some point in time, this gestalt starts to manifest itself within the sphere of your knowledge, when suddenly, you can start to observe the string connections between the sciences, the bible, and a host of other disciplines.   The reason the bible will not decipher itself entirely is because of the human nature [error factor] involved in putting together the bible, while at the same time, for various reasons and surely not “inspired,” leaving out many other texts that should have been included in the compilation of the bible, but weren’t for religious, political, social, economic reasons and more.  Without this external source of knowledge, one will forever been held captive in a loop of circular reasoning, never to understand the depth, breadth and scope of the verses offered before us.

So now, let us take a look at some verses to introduce Job, and then on to Ezekiel.

Genesis 1: 14: “and God said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, for seasons, and for days, and years:”

Psalm 147: 4:  “He telleth the number of the stars; he calleth them all by their names.”

Psalm 19: 1-4: “The heavens declare the glory of God and the firmament sheweth his handiwork.  Day unto day uttereth speech, and night unto night sheweth knowledge.    [There is] no speech or language, [where] their voice is not heard.  Their line is gone out through all the earth, and their words to the end of the world.  In them has he set a tabernacle for the sun.”  King James Version

Wow, did you just read all of that!  There is abundant information bring revealed to us in just those six verses alone!  The stars are to be signs [symbols] for us to interpret.  He has named all the stars in the heavens.  The lights [stars] in the heaven to be for signs for us, to denote seasons, and to count the days and years!  That “He” has numbered all the stars, and all have been given names! Who is “He?”  Is it god, God, GOD, or is it what I would name “ONE WHO HAS NO NAME?”  I will write more about this in a future blog. 

Having declared that the heavens reveal God’s glory, the Psalmist informs us that the heavens declare a message in a language that is understood by ALL peoples.  Night unto night sheweth knowledge; what is it that we see at night when we gaze up at the sky? Stars and constellations, of course!  And of course, the speech rendered is not the spoken word, but observation.  And during the day, the people spoke of it and what they gleaned from their observations.  As well, is not the starry evenings lined throughout the world for everyone to observe?  Lastly, in them [stars] he has set them as a temple for the sun. What could that be except the science of astronomy! 

These starry worlds of stars in fact do show the handiwork, but explain little about the “glory of God.”  How then can the stars be made to speak, in a language everyone understands?  The answer is very evident.  Pictures, or symbols speak in all dialects, a universal language to all peoples everywhere.  Somewhere in the earliest ages of human existence or most likely before the existence of humanity on earth, the visible stars were named.  Someone, thoroughly knowledgeable with the laws of astronomy, who has been out there in the cosmos, arranged certain stars, based upon their location, into groups, for our little corner of the Milky Way Galaxy.  Those names and groupings were at the same time included in certain figures, natural or imaginary, but intensely symbolic and significant.  Today we know them as the Constellations. 

What is truly remarkable is that these stars and constellation names were the same around the globe without any difference.  If we examine the records of the ancient nations of the world we find the Sumerian, Chinese, Akkadian, Chaldean, Hindi, Egyptian, Assyrian, Babylonian, Medes, Persians, Greek, and Roman astronomers recognized, over a distant time period, the same “zodiacal signs,” both as to the meaning of their names and their order!  How could this be if we all spoke different languages and cultures didn’t even know of other cultures existing for thousands of years?  There has never been a record in history, a cultural argument as to the names of the stars and constellations!  This would suggest their zodiacs were but copies of an even older zodiac, and because we find such universal agreement on the constellations, it is evident that the patterns were fixed according to some well-developed ancient religion, presumably Sumerian, or an older more ancient culture.

Before I get into describing what it was that Ezekiel saw in his vision, I first need to set the groundwork by looking at the story of Job and encounter with God.  If you research the Book of Job, you will find that no theologian or historian has ever been able to place Job’s ordeal in a relevant ancient period of time as there is no historical reference point to cite within the text.  As a clue, it appears that everybody was getting along [sons of God, God, GOD, Satan, Job] at the time, so Job’s story must therefore have occurred before the “fall?” of Satan, and thus, must have been a pre-flood event.

Years ago, I read a book, authored by Dr. B.G. Sidarth titled “Celestial Keys to the Vedas,” a book wherein the author, an astronomer and current director of the B.M. Birla Science Center in India, was explaining how he arrived at deciphering many of India’s holy books such as The Upanishads, The Puranas, The Dhammapada, the Rig Vedas, The Bhagavad Gita, etc.  As I was reading his analysis, I suddenly felt as if I had just experienced the biggest ‘AHA’ moment of my life!  I had found a key to decipher Christian biblical text.

As Siddarth, a spiritual person in search of the meaning of life, explained his analysis, in translating the poetry of the Indian holy books it suddenly dawned upon him that the written poetry appeared to be metaphors and allegories in describing celestial or astronomical events, the stars, the constellations, and with it some of India’s historical events.  Armed with this new enlightenment, I went back to some of the Old and New Testament books to see if I could also superimpose the metaphor concept, and to my great surprise, I could apply the same!  Now, my discovery may not in fact be new or original in dealing with the Christian bible and Judaic Torah, but I have never seen or heard of any similar analysis.  Having explained my approach to you in applying the metaphor concept, I will now proceed to decipher some of the deeply symbolic messages in the Old and New Testament.

When I read the bible [authorized King James Version], I scrutinize what is being said, who is doing the saying, and then analyze why certain words are used, and many times, have to look up the actual meanings of these words.  While the bible in English is translated from both the Hebrew and Greek, in fact, the Hebrew and Greek translations are taken from much older languages that predate both these languages.  You have the Sanskrit language, the Egyptian language, the Chaldean language, the Akkadian language, and finally Sumerian language, this oldest language, which is estimated to be at least 6,000 years old.  It is well known by linguistic scholars that the Sumerian language is the mother of all Semitic languages, which includes Hebrew. There is one older language that predates all of the aforementioned languages, however, no expert linguist has been able to decipher this language to date.  What is missing is a sort of Rosetta stone that will provide linguists with the essential keys necessary to decipher this mysterious language.  Also, I refrain from using any of the contemporary bibles as their translations into easy-to-read English loses much of it’s meaning from the Authorized King James Version.

I am selecting the following starting point, a quote from The Book of Job to set the tone, two scientific fields of study that will emerge from these verses, and the powerful messages that are being conveyed to us readers to consider and investigate.   [Note: please note that the words in parenthesis from biblical passages are words added in by the translators.] Job, the righteous guy that he is, has endured much suffering with trials and tribulations, but is now getting his butt blistered by God verbally, because Job is now angry with God questioning all of the suffering he has had to endure to test his faith, and starts to question God why. 

God then starts to chastise Job and commences a long discourse on “who dares to question the authority of God!”[By the way, in Job 1:6, who are the “sons of God” that presented themselves before the Lord, and that Satan, was also among them?  If you look in the margins of your bible, the term Satan is translated by the translators to mean adversary, which is NOT necessarily evil. Adversary just means “ equal or opponent.”  Further down in verse 8, when the Lord is offering Job as an example, why does the Lord [Lord also has many different meaning] say that Job fears God, instead of “ loves” God? This reminds me of God sparing Abraham’s son, Isaac from being sacrificed on the alter, when told by God to stop because NOW he knew that Abraham feared God.  Again, why is not love mentioned?

 In Job 39:9, God mentions a Unicorn!  If you look in the margin, the translators state it is a rhinoceros.  Why? Because we just can’t believe that there is such a thing as a Unicorn because we have never seen one!  But if God said it was a Unicorn, then it must of have been a Unicorn, not a rhinoceros.  Or perhaps God doesn’t know the difference between a Unicorn and a rhinoceros? If God can name all the stars, I think God knows a Unicorn when he sees one!] 

Do you see why I state that we read over these passages, but never stop to think about what is being stated?  That which the eyes see, the ears hear, the mind believes, and that is our major problem as our mind is continually deceived and trained to accept what is only perceived through the visible light spectrum, and our dogmatic belief system!  All these biblical passages just scream to be investigated! 

Back to my original message, though, so let’s take a look at Job 38:31-33, as I have underlined the key terms in these verses.

Amos 5:8 Seek him that maketh the seven stars [Pleiades] and Orion…”

Job 38:31-33:  “Canst though bind the sweet influences of the Pleiades, or loose the bands of Orion? Canst though bring forth Mazzaroth in his season? Or canst thou guide Arcturus with his sons? Knowest though the ordinances of heaven?  Canst though set the dominion thereof in the earth?”

God is making a declaration to Job, and to us, and in these four short passages, is giving us much to consider!  Why is God referencing star clusters like the Pleiades and the Belt of Orion?  What is Mazzaroth?  What are the ordinances of heaven?  What is the “setting of dominion in the earth?”  We have just been given much to ponder, and yet, when we read this, we just gloss over it, never to fathom the depth of the message being conveyed to us.  Our [Stanford PhD] teacher once told us that when God makes a comment, we are supposed to LISTEN, as a very important point is being made for us to research and understand.  GOD does not waste words and everything written is supposed to be understood, and not glossed over!  This is how investigative research commences, with puzzling comments such as rendered above that should draw you to search.

The first question asked is: What is the “sweet influences of the Pleiades?”  The Pleiades is a star cluster located near the constellation of Taurus the Bull and is visible to the naked eye, depending upon atmospheric conditions.  Generally, one has to look away to view the cluster with ones peripheral vision.  The Pleiades is called the “Seven Sisters” because seven stars is what can normally be seen by one peripheral vision, but I have looked at this cluster through 10/50 binoculars and have observed many, many brilliant blue hot stars in the background, and it is one magnificent sight to behold.  The constellation Pleiades is located in the neck of another important constellation, Taurus the Bull, and the word Pleiades means “the congregation of the judges” or “rulers.”  Who are these judges and rulers?  The brightest star in this cluster is “Al Cyone,” which is in Arabic, and means “the center.”  The center of what?  All this I will leave for another blog, folks.

So what is so special about these stars and what of the ‘sweet influences’ noted in the bible passage?

In a book titled “Infinite Mind: Science of the Human Vibrations of Consciousness” authored by Dr. Valerie Hunt, a professor of Neurophysiology and Psychology at U.C.L.A., Hunt conducted experiments in what is called the “Mu” room, simulating the effects of electromagnetic effects simulating those discharged by the hot blue stars known as the Pleiades Cluster.”  The Mu room is a shielded room located in the physics department at UCLA, where the natural electromagnetic energy of the air can be altered without changing the level of gravitational force or the oxygen content.  Using instruments inside the room, physicists could alter the quantities as well as the specific frequencies of the electromagnetic field.

The results of the experiments were nothing less than startling and most revealing.  When volunteers in the experiment were exposed to higher levels of electromagnetic energy beyond the norm encountered on earth such as what is generated by magnetar stars like the Pleiades, the subjects’ physical balance vastly improved to the point where the volunteers could easily stand on one foot, even on tiptoes, or lean to previously impossible angles without falling.  Somehow, their motor coordination had greatly improved.  In addition, the subjects reported that their cognition became clearer and as well, experienced an expansion of their consciousness with enhanced emotional well-being and excitement.  More staggering were the implications of rapid and permanent healing of neuromuscular disturbances and degeneration such as cerebral palsy, multiple sclerosis, and Lou Gehrig’s disease.  Likewise, emotional disturbances, sensory confusion and learning handicaps did greatly diminish if not disappear.  The “sweet influences of the Pleiades!  How could simple ancient people know of these “sweet influences” of the Pleiades cluster?  Or was it that GOD, or someone, has been there and knows of the benefits of this star cluster?  The book is a great read, cites a number of scientific studies, and is recommended if you would be interested for your own intellectual growth.

What about the Bands of Orion?  What is so important with the Bands of Orion? To answer this, we must combine this symbol with the final two questions to be asked and answered, below.  Briefly though, Orion is the most brilliant of all the constellations.  The constellation figure is that of a great hunter with a mighty club in his right hand shown in the act of striking.  In his left hand he holds the skin of a slain lion.  His left foot is in the act of crushing the head of the enemy.  He wears a brilliant starry girdle from which hangs a mighty sword.  The hilt of the sword is in the form of the head of a body of a lamb.  In Greek and Roman mythology, the figure Orion was the center of many legends concerning the hero-god who lived and died on earth, but even then he had been no ordinary man.  He was a giant in stature and courage; a great hunter who had the power to walk unharmed over the waters of the earth.

The names of the stars in this sign are quite fascinating and warrant more elaboration.  The brightest star is named “Betelgeuz” and means “the coming of the branch.”  The next star in brilliancy (in the left foot of the figure constellation) is “Rigel” and means “the foot that crusheth.”  The lifted foot in the very act of crushing the head of the enemy thus illustrates the name.  Another star (one of the three in the belt) is called “Al Nitch” meaning “the wounded one.  In his left breast shines a bright star named “Bellatrix” which means “swiftly coming” or “suddenly destroying.” Other star-names, in Arabic relate to this prince.  The star named “Al Giauza’ means “the branch:” the star “Al Gebor” means “the mighty:” the star “Al Mirzaim” means “the ruler;” the star “Al Nagjed” means “the prince:” the star “Niphla” in Chaldean means “the might,” and the star “Nux” in Hebrew means “the strong.”  Why are there so many meanings attached to the stars?  The answer is because the ancient were in fact relating a story to the people of the earth in the future of the glory of “the one with no name” that created everything.  I will cover more about this in a future blog as well.

The next question asked is about the Mazzaroth?  [This is the focal point of this entire treatise, and if you gain nothing else from this writing, know that the zodiac constellations plays an extremely significant part in deciphering many of the hidden messages in the Bible.]  As I stated in my prior blog, first there was the science, and then came the astrology!  If you research the word, Mazzaroth, for it’s meaning, you will find that it states “the 12 signs” and it may even be stated so in the margins of your bible.  But what are the 12 signs?  Well, if you lived in the Near East around the Mesopotamia area, you would be looking up in the sky viewing the stars in the evening, and what is it that one observes in the evening sky?  You would observe the Constellations, but not just any Constellation because there were 36 in all at the time of the ancient cultures, but 12 main constellations around the earth’s ecliptic.  Why these 12?  Because these 12 constellations are all located on the ecliptic, between the Earths equator and 30th parallel line, where all the ancient cultures were located in Mesopotamia.  And what is the ecliptic?  It is the apparent solar path through the star constellations that our earth “travels” as it orbits around the sun. 

In actuality, there are 13 constellations around the ecliptic, however only 12 were used by ancient cultures to record time [Astro-archeology or Archeo-astronomy] and historic events.  These 12 constellations would be seen from both the northern and southern hemispheres of the globe.  As far as the remaining 24 constellations, there are 12 more constellations north of the 30th parallel earth line, and 12 more constellations south of the equator.  The primary 12 constellations were located between the equator and the 30th parallel line and were used by ancient cultures in recording history.  Today many more constellations have been named and you can find all of them in astronomy books, however, the MAIN constellations to focus on are the 12 constellations on the ecliptic.  Each constellation has specific representations, however, I will only focus on the main 12 constellations for now, all named after the “Congregation of the Gods” as noted in Psalms 81:1.

In tracing the names of the Constellations, one has to go all the way back to the Sumerian era at least 6,000 years ago and longer.  The Sumerian culture was quite advanced and they wrote their history down in over 50,000 tablets and copper scrolls noting their law, government, business contracts, commerce, science, medicine, mathematics, and so forth.  Thousands of tablets are still in the process of being translated by scholars, and many of the scrolls can be found in museums around the globe.  As we are beginning to find out, the Sumerian peoples were accomplished mathematicians, engineers, artists, economists, and had a well developed legal system, medicine and business commerce.  At the minimum, Sumerian astronomers can be credited for the ancient and present names of the Constellations.  The Sumerian culture seemed to vanish over night; much of their knowledge was passed down to Egypt around 3,000 BC, towards the end of the fourth millennium BC. 

Returning to the 12 Constellations, imagine viewing the earth below, viewing the earth during procession [wobble] and noticing where one of the constellations runs tangent to the ecliptic path of the sun.  This picture below shows the summer solstice, as the northern hemisphere is titled greatly to the right, or toward the sun.  When the Spring and Fall Equinox is achieved, the zodiac is aligned perfectly with the equator of the earth, and both day and night are equal in length of time, thus the term “equinox,” or equal.

The names of the 12 main constellations are: [SUMERIAN first, then English].  Please also see the last page for a pictorial depiction of the Zodiac.

  1. GU.AN.AN [heavenly bull], Taurus
  2. MASH.TAB.BA [twins], Gemini
  3. DUB [pincers, tongs], Unicorn, then Crab, Cancer
  4. UR.GULA [lion], Leo
  5. AB.SIN [her father was SIN], The Maiden, Virgo
  6. ZI.BA.AN.NA [heavenly fate], Scales of Libra
  7. CIR.TAB [which claws or cuts], Eagle, then later, Scorpion
  8. PA.BIL [defender], The archer, Sagittarius
  9. SHUR.MASH [goat-fish], Capricorn
  10. GU [lord of the waters], The Water Bearer, Aquarius
  11. SIM.MAH [fishes], Pisces
  12. KU.MAL [field dweller], The Ram, Aries

The next question asked is of “Arcturus with his sons?”  What the heck does this mean?  In astronomy, the star Arcturus is the brightest star in the Bootes Constellation, consisting of 54 stars, with the star being of the first magnitude, meaning it is very bright at night.  In history, the ancient Egyptians called the star “Smat” which means “one who rules, subdues, and governs.  The Greeks, not fully recognizing the meaning of this sign, called it a ploughman and gave it the name of “Bootes.”  The fallacy of this interpretation is apparent from the fact that the so-called plough, they depict, and the man, are set in opposite directions.  However, the Greeks were not consistent to their idea of a ploughman for they also called this man, “Arcturus,” the watcher, guardian, or keeper of “Arktos” (the adjoining constellation), his sons?  In all the ancient zodiacs, we find Arktos representing “the flock, the sheepfold,” thus showing Bootes is not a ploughman, but the guardian and keeper of the sheepfold.

The Hebrew meaning of the name of this constellation is “the coming.”  The sickle in his hand represents him as a reaper.  There is a wealth of meaning in the names of the stars making up this constellation figure.  Arcturus, the bright star in the figure’s left knee, is mentioned in Job 9:9.  It means “He cometh.”  The star “Alkaturop” (in the spear or rod in the figure of the constellation) means “the branch, treading under my foot.”  But who or what is it that is coming?  That is for another blog, along with the meaning of the star in Sumerian!

The next question is really the final two sentences regarding the Ordinance of heaven and setting the dominion over the earth.  Obviously, man could not exercise any control over the movements of the constellations, but had to wait for each sign to appear in the order of its season.  This is what is called the “procession of the equinoxes,” the orbital movement of not just the earth, but our solar system through the 12 constellations which takes approximately 25,980 years or 72 years for one arc degree to pass.  In practice though, the ancients used astronomical citing from the Sphinx in Egypt to announce on the first day of Spring Equinox just before sunrise, which constellation was rising.  Some constellations are actually much larger than others, and while modern science uses an average of 72 years for one arc degree, in fact, the actual citing was dominant in ancient times in announcing the new ruler-ship of a new God as soon as the new constellation was in view.   There is one more wrinkle to this topic, having to do with the speeding up of the procession of the constellations, but I will save this for another blog.
So where is the starting point to observe the passing of these constellations?  The answer is: the great pyramid of Egypt, Cheops, and specifically, the Sphinx, which sits on the 30th parallel, facing directly eastward observing the dawning of the sun every day.  Why the pyramids in Egypt?  Because that specific area is the exact center of the landmass on earth, and the great pyramids are physically laid out in the constellation form of the Band of Orion!  That in itself is a great message for all of us to understand, that the pyramids followed the exact layout of the Band of Orion of nearly 10,500 BC, with the Nile River perfectly aligning itself on the horizon with the spiral arm of the galaxy, as though it is a continuation.  Another most interest fact is how the Great Pyramid Cheops is laid out with its four corners facing exactly to the four cardinal points, that is, compass north, south, east and west, verified today through modern astronomists.  How could such primitive people first understand the importance of Orion, or know of the exact cardinal points on earth!  And when was the appropriate time to view the movement of the constellations to record time and historical events?  On the first day of the ancient year; the day of the Spring Equinox just before sunrise, around March 18 through the 23rd, depending upon the year to observe which constellation was in place just before sunrise.

The Spring Equinox is on the first day of Spring and Autumnal Equinox is the first day of Fall, when the Earth’s axis is neither leaning toward the sun nor away, so that night and day are of equal length, 12 hours each.  The exact point of equinox is that split second when a line drawn from the Sun to the Earth intersects the Earth’s axis at exactly a 90-degree angle.  At that moment, the Sun is overhead on the equator and both poles are half-light and half-dark.  For this year, 2010, the Spring Equinox falls on March 20th at 10:32 AM, daylight savings time.  All of the ancient cultures recognized that the Spring Equinox introduced the New Year on the first day of equinox.  It wasn’t until centuries later that the New Year was changed to January 1, established during the Egyptian dynasties, denoting when the Star Sirius, lay directly overhead Egypt at midnight.

In the books, “The Message of The Sphinx: A Quest for the Hidden Legacy of Mankind,” by Robert Bauval and Graham Hancock, and “The Orion Mystery,” by Robert Bauval and Adrian Gilbert, they did extensive research on the relationship between the Great Pyramids of Egypt, Band of Orion, and the Constellations.  In both books, the authors noted using computer-aided software modeling in astronomy, and were able to perform a computer regression and plot the location of the constellations back to approximately 12,500 years ago [10,500 BC] when the spiral arm of the Milky Way Galaxy and the three stars of Orion’s Belt at meridian transit was precisely matched by the course of the Nile river and the pattern of the three great Pyramids on the ground, observed directly from the Sphinx.  I recommend both books as a great read for all the scientific [astronomical and mathematical] information provided within the books.

It is a matter of contentious debate as to the age of the pyramids and the Sphinx, but certainly they are much older than the age claimed by the Egyptian government of approximately 2,500 BC.  For the Egyptian government to claim otherwise would immediately dismantle Egypt’s contributing claim to the progress of civilization, which historian openly admit that the knowledge of man extends well beyond Egyptian history.  To admit that an older civilization(s) was responsible for their national monuments would remove Egypt from any major consideration of their contribution to man.  But the archeological evidence is there, and supported by other scientific and geological investigation and proven evidence of the significant rain and flood damage to the pyramids and Sphinx.  There has been absolutely no catastrophic flood or rain damage within the past 4,500 years, so how would the Sphinx account for visible flood damage, unless if the monument was far older than claimed.

To make all of this really interesting, if you ever visit Washington DC, you will observe many, many monuments, statues, paintings, stele’s, depicted throughout many federal government buildings!  Why? Because when Washington DC was first laid out, the founders’ of these united States of America were Freemasons, and left their mark upon the capital with a great amount of Masonic symbolism, primarily dealing with the constellations, stars, GOD, and the first Masonic Temple in Washington DC. Furthermore, many of our Presidents were in fact 33 degree Masons, as was FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover, and many other central political figures.  This I will save for a future blog. 

Now that I have introduced and verified the science disciplines of Astronomy and Astro-Archeology and their relationship to the biblical verses, I am now ready to reveal what it was exactly that the Prophet Ezekiel saw in his vision, as well as what the Apostle John saw in his vision in the Book of Revelation.  Why is all of this symbolism so important!  Because The “One who has no name” DEEMED it important enough to fill the Bible with many astronomical symbolic passages for us to consider and investigate!  All of this symbolism is crucial in understanding the history of man on this planet earth, and the recorded time frame for our existence here, as noted in the “signs” of the heavens.

To reiterate, if you gain nothing else from this blog, it is that when GOD mentions something, GOD is telling you something specific, and we are to hone in on this for investigation!  GOD does not waste words upon us!  Astronomy is significantly important for us to understand, and is the key to unlocking many of the important symbolic verses laden throughout the bible!

All of this in my next blog, folks, so please, continue to search, search, search, and ye shall find the truth!

I leave you below with this beautiful woodcut by Albrecht Durer, exhibiting the constellations in the northern hemisphere, first exhibited in 1515 in Nurnberg, Germany.  Study it well in preparation for my next blog on Ezekiel and John!

Blessing to us all

Seek and Ye Shall Find the Truth

“Recognize what is in your sight, and that which is hidden from you will become plain to you.  For there is nothing hidden which will not become manifest.”
            Jesus, The Gospel of Thomas

Hello again world; welcome to my seventh blog; the 7th in my educational series to you!

"The truth will set you free, but first it will make you miserable".
James Garfield 1831-1881, 20th U.S. President

What I now write I do so because “to he that much is given, much is expected.”  Wealth can be defined in many ways, and while not financially wealthy, my wife and I have been blessed with much knowledge over the years, and it is our responsibility to spread this knowledge to everyone.  But while we may take the people to the well, we can’t make them drink of the water, so it will be up to each of you to decide.  And while I was first going to write a book about my knowledge to make money, I am of the belief that all truth should be made free to everyone without any financial charge.

I am doing a change of pace with this blog from my prior blogs, folks.  While I am intrigued by politics and economics that have gripped the globe through man-made manipulated crisis, my first love is theology and my search for truth.  My deepest passion is learning the truth of things, the truth about GOD, the existence of GOD, and the meaning behind existence.  Notice that I didn’t say, god, or God, but GOD, and there is a difference in substance and meaning to them all. [I refer you to Psalm 82:1, Psalm 82:6, and John 10:34-35 for the different spellings of the word god] Do you see how we observe, and yet do not see? See how we gloss over things as we read, and never notice any differences? In future blogs I will point out what each means by introducing linguistics and translations from older and more ancient languages.  Ah yes, truth; you will find it in the strangest of places, and much of the time, it is hidden right in front of us, but we cannot see it for your blindness created by a rigid, institutionally indoctrinated teaching that has been instilled in al of us from childhood onward.

In writing this new series, while writing on the bible, I am going to incorporate such topics as: astronomy, astrophysics, linguistics, quantum physics, Astro-archeology, DNA-Genetics, molecular biology, botany, geography, climate-change, mathematics, Freemasonry, Pharmacology, Hebrew Peshar Method of writing, the hypothetical Q document from which the gospels are copied from, fables and fairy tales, astrology, and many other disciplines.  Yes astrology, because quite to the contrary of what you hear or have learned in the past that astronomy evolved out of astrology as the reverse is truth: that first there was the science of astronomy, and much later came astrology as scientific teaching ended with the sudden end of Sumerian civilization around 3,500 BC. 

I also include Freemasonry since their ‘secret’ concepts and teachings are based upon their belief of one GOD or Architect, who is responsible for the creation of all, but is taught, in a cryptic form of teaching for their initiated.  Consider it similar to the comment in the New Testament “he that has an ear, let him hear,” a cryptic statement by Jesus for only the initiated to understand, and not for the masses.  It was clear from that comment and many other statements and versus, that there was a deeper message being conveyed to his [Jesus] initiated and not to the masses.  Masonic teaching is similar and is allegorical in nature and while the surface teaching conveys a principle, there is a deeper hidden underlying message being conveyed to the initiated, but may not be understood at the moment due to the novice stance of the person. There will be many startling revelations that will come out of these new series of blogs. 

Fables and fairy tale stories as well?  Yes, Alice in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass, Little Red Riding Hood, Santa Clause or St. Nicholas, the Christmas tree, the Maypole tree, Gnomes and much more; these tales are more than just stores, and are entirely symbolic, allegorical and represent deeper meaning into the nature of reality, based upon stories written in the Old and New Testament.  I will also write of the Koran, and it’s beginnings, not in 700 AD but around 500 BC, along with the origin of it’s symbol, the crescent moon and star. The word, the logos, the symbol?  Letters, words are in fact logos as the Greeks put it, and are nothing more than symbols that we have learned to use into a speakable language.  And yet, we fail to see the many symbols placed in front of us, because we are not taught to decipher information placed in front of us.

When people read the bible, it is my observation that very few people actually read the bible with any thought. People tend to generally read it from an emotive perspective and not intellectually, accepting all versus and statements as complete truth.  I suppose that’s fine, if you are only seeking solace and comfort from life’s hardships, but one is depriving his or her selves of the richness of the information provided.  Generally, people don’t really understand their religion or faith, whether based in Judaism, Christianity, Islam, Buddhism, Zoroastrianism, the names of gods such as Ahura Mazda, their origin meanings, etc., and how they all started, and why. Traditionalists or fundamentalists in each faith generally don’t look for the inconsistencies in the biblical or religious story lines and the many inherent clues that are given to you to question and look at.  As well, almost no one understands the deep symbolism involved in all religions, or how symbols have been adopted and incorporated into their faiths from other religions, which have nothing to do with their faith. 

As we read the bible, we SHOULD BE QUESTIONING chapters and versus that just seem strange or contradict one another, or uses terms that we should be researching to investigate the meaning of these terms used. But in fact, we don’t as we just take what we read to be literal, which it is not.  Why do we have in Gen 1:28 when Adam and Eve are told to REPLENISH the earth?  In Gen 9:1 God has just blessed Noah and his sons and again tells them to REPLENISH the earth.  Just how many times does man have to replenish the earth?  If you look up the meaning of the word ‘replenish’ it means to “restore or to put back to it’s original state.”  Does this mean in Gen 1:28 than man existed before this particular creation in Gen 1:28?  Was there a prior creation of man?  Just how many prior creations of man were there?  What about the story of the creation of man in Genesis Chapter 1:26-31 on the sixth day and God rested on the 7th day, but then in Genesis Chapter 2:5, after the creation of all, there was not a man to till the ground?  What about the very first two verses in Gen 1:1-2 that in the beginning God created the heaven and the earth, but then in verse two, the earth is without form and void.  God created the earth formless and void?  If we look at Jeremiah 4:23, he uses the exact words that the earth was formless and void, but this is verse is noting something in the dim past of unrecorded history.  Was the earth created and then re-created for man?  Then if you compare Isaiah 14:17, again there is an apparent destruction before recorded history.  Did God have to recreate everything again, and again, and again?  There are many, many such statements that just beg the question to be asked!

Clearly, the bible is inferring that there have been several creations of man; each at a different time and this is where we need archeology and Astro-archeology to research these comments.

Symbols, symbols, symbols!  What about all the symbols used in the different religions around the globe?  If you watched Dan Brown’s book turned into a movie, The DaVinci Code, at the beginning you see fictional Professor Robert Langdon presenting a lecture in symbolism to a group of people in Paris, and when symbols are presented to the audience and are asked about the symbols, each participant incorrectly comments on the origin of each symbol.  Langdon then goes on to demonstrate that symbols are in fact for more ancient than we believe, and that many of those symbols have been incorporated in all of the religions of today, having lost their original meanings, but do not mean what is being presented to us today.

I am a doubting Thomas, and this is not negative.  It just means that I question things and by doing this, I have uncovered many falsehoods, just as I have previously written regarding our legal system, federal reserve, taxation, etc.  It is the doubting Thomas’s that push the envelope: to search and reveal hidden truths that we all need to know, which has been hidden from us, deliberately. 

My interest in existentialism came at a very early age, though I didn’t know what to call it then.  Around 10 years of age, I started asking a lot of questions which my mother or anyone else couldn’t answer regarding the existence of GOD.  It wasn’t until my late teens when I started questioning established Church dogma, and when confronting church officials with questions, I was told that such matters were too complex for humans and should be left to GOD.  I left my childhood faith, bounced around between different faiths over the coming years, finding each denomination I questioned lacking in intellectual investigation, relying solely on church based dogma teachings, and not real investigative research. Eventually, I lost my faith, but it took a special person we met in Southern California, a University trained PhD to get me back on track.  Later, my Graduate University teachings also helped to restore my belief in GOD, based upon science and other disciplines, and not church dogma.

It wasn’t until my early 30’s when I accidentally stumbled across this special person, a brilliant Stanford University trained PhD in Education when I once again continued my investigative search.  This person, our [wife and me] teacher as I will refer to from time to time, taught us how to research, how to question, and gave us an entirely different perspective on investigative approaches, utilizing research methods across many disciplines in arriving at answers. Later, while attending graduate school, I began to study Astro-physics, Quantum Mechanics, Buddhism, and other religions, which opened our eyes from a secular viewpoint, that there is much empirical evidence in front of us to prove the existence of GOD, yet we cannot see.

The regaining of my faith in the one GOD was a result of my research in the sciences and other disciplines, and now armed with scientific evidence, and a new way of approaching my research in existentialism, came to the realization how much the public had not been properly informed in their respective religions.  Our original teacher has since passed away, and my wife and I owe him a debt of gratitude for his teaching, and have ever since, guided us to new heights in our investigative work.

And as you will discover through my blogs series, there are far greater mysteries that remain dormant awaiting your investigation in discovering and fathoming ultimate truth.  As you will discover, the preponderance of evidence is so overwhelming that terms such as faith will not be needed.  I will show you the Word, the Logos, the Symbol within the Bible, Torah, Koran, how it is intertwined, and I will bring in secular teachings from many disciplines to reveal the nature of existence, and also why there has been so much violence in the past between these three "desert religions."

We must come to understand how and why our Bible was compiled together at the Council of Nicea in 325 AD, convened by the Roman Emperor Constantine I, and discover why so many other books were left out of the created bible.  What role did Constantine play at this council and what were his motives in consolidating the numerous churches of that time period?  What was the purpose of the second council of Nicea in 787 AD convened by Empress Irene, who was then acting as regent for her son, Emperor Constantine VI?  Were these councils so spiritually motivated, or were political and social objectives being met to consolidate perceived power and authority over the people.

What about the all the other synods and councils that took place over the past two millennia?  Were all of these gatherings inspired by GOD, or were these meeting again to condemn, consolidate, eliminate controversial passages, texts, for the purpose seeking more and more power over the people?

Be prepared for twists and turns that may lead you to make early conclusions, and I would ask that you try and not do that, but to look at the evidence first! 

Nothing is what it appears to be, folks!

Now let me tantalize you a bit for now to set the stage for future blogs, a small sample albeit, and I will solve one small mystery for you having to do with one of the sons of Noah, Ham.  [I solved this mystery in December of 1987 while enjoy the Christmas Holiday in Nurnberg, Germany] Recall that Ham was punished and banished for having “seen the nakedness of his father.”  We have been taught through our biblical teachings that God punished Ham for having seen Noah naked.  That’s a very harsh punishment for just having seen his father naked! 

Now lets go back to the original verses in the King James Version, Gen 9:22-23 “And Ham, the father of Canaan, saw the nakedness of his father, and told his two brethren without. And Shem and Japheth took a garment, and laid it upon both their shoulders, and went backward, and covered the nakedness of their father; and their faces were backward, and they saw not their father’s nakedness.” So Ham was punished harshly for just seeing his father naked?  The answer is no.

Let’s go to Leviticus 18 where the Lord is laying down the rules for how we are supposed to live, regarding the uncovering of one’s nakedness.  After you read the first seven verses in this chapter, which lays the groundwork for understanding of the seeing the nakedness of people, then go to verse 8 which then states “The nakedness of thy father’s wife shalt though not uncover: it is thy father’s nakedness.”  After this verse, we then move on to Leviticus 20:11 where the verse states “And the man that lieth with his father’s wife have uncovered his father’s nakedness: both of them shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them.”  And therein lies the answer to the harsh punishment to Ham: Ham had raped his mother, having sexual intercourse with her and thus seeing the nakedness of his father, Noah.  Ham then bragged to his two brothers of what he had done, who then immediately went to their mother’s aid.  When Noah awoke from his drunkenness, he knew immediately what Ham had done as his wife had been beside him sleeping in the tent next to Noah.

That is now, one mystery solved.

In the next blog, I shall decipher and explain some strange passages in Job and their relationship to the science disciplines, which will then lead to the meaning and definition of the age, and ages, exactly what they mean, and what some of those symbols that Ezekiel saw in a vision mean.  Below is a picture revealing what Ezekiel saw in his vision of the Cherubims, and we shall decipher the meaning of the creatures, because it is all related to "those that have an eye, let him see."  What does the wheel within a wheel mean?  What does the creature with the face of a man, a lion, a bull, and an eagle represent?  In my next blog...

In the meantime, keep reading and understanding, for to the one that searches for truth, he shall find it.  There are many, many, many mysterious verses and passages that when investigated, will lead you to start understand the truth of it all.

Blessings to all of us!

Citizens, citizens, Citizens, citizens

“Recognize what is in your sight, and that which is hidden from you will become plain to you.  For there is nothing hidden which will not become manifest.”
            Jesus, The Gospel of Thomas

Hello again world; welcome to my Sixth blog; the sixth in my educational series to you!

"The truth will set you free, but first it will make you miserable".
James Garfield 1831-1881, 20th U.S. President

For this blog, I am writing about the differences in citizenship as NOTED in the law; United States Supreme Court decisions, as well as a host of other court cases, and what has been legislated in various US Title Codes.  Since, in my last blog I commented that there are at least three different United States, it only follows that there are different citizenships, which shall be proven below.

Let’s begin with the natural person born in the 50 states, better known as the American Citizen [NOT US citizen], governed by the Constitution of these united States of America.  I have chosen to call it the sovereignty of the American born people, and the states, which are Republics!

Sovereignty of the People & States

Starting with a US Supreme Court decision in 1884 below, the court stated that inherent sovereignty lies with the PEOPLE, and NOT the government!

Julliard v. Greenman, 110 U.S. 421 (1884), Supreme Court Justice Field:  There is no such thing as a power of inherent sovereignty in the government of the United States…In this country sovereignty resides in the people,  and Congress can exercise no power which they have not, by their Constitution entrusted to it.  All else is withheld.

In 1974, the following federal court case specifically noted the differences in government between Europe and America, further commenting that sovereignty remains with the people, and not the government.

Glass v. The Sloop Betsy; 3Dall 6 (1974):  In Europe, the executive is almost synonymous with the sovereign power of a State; and generally includes legislative and judicial authority…Such is the condition of power in that quarter of the world, where it is too commonly acquired by force or fraud, or both, and seldom by compact (ratified Constitution).  In America, however, the case is widely different.  Our government is funded upon compact.  Sovereignty was, and is, in the people.

In the US Supreme court decision in 1837, noted that the states of the union are separate and independent sovereign nations from the federal government.

New York v. Miln, 36 U.S. 102 (1837):  The state governments, in their separate powers and independent sovereignties, in their reserved powers, are just as much beyond the jurisdiction and control of the National Government as the National Government in its sovereignty is beyond the control and jurisdiction of state governments.
            a State has the same undeniable and unlimited jurisdiction over all persons and things within its territorial limits, as any foreign nation…

In the US Supreme court decision below, the court confirmed the sovereignty of the American people, and noted the distinction between the subjects of England, and our American sovereign Citizens.

United States v. Lee, 106 U.S. 196, at 208:  “Under our system the people, who are there [in England] called subjects, are here the sovereign…Their rights, whether collective or individual, are not bound to give way to a sentiment of loyalty to the person of a monarch.  The citizen [in America] knows no person, however near to those in power, or however powerful himself to whom he need yield which the law secures to him…”

Please read the decisions of the following court cases below, again testifying to the sovereignty of the American born Citizen.

Chisholm. Ex’r. v. Georgia 1 L.ed (2Dall) 415, 472:  “Here [in America] sovereignty rests with the People.

Chisholm v. Georgia, 2 Dall. 419, 458:  “The law subscribes to the king [in America, the People] the attribute of sovereignty; he is sovereign and independent within his own dominion; and owes no kind of subjection to any other potentate upon earth.  Hence, it is, that no suit or action can be brought against the king, even in civil matters; because no court can have jurisdiction over him; for all jurisdiction implies supremacy of power.”

Dred Scott v. Sandford, 60 U.S. 393, 19 How. 577:  “The words ‘People of the United States’ and ‘Citizens’ are synonymous terms, and mean the same thing.  They both describe the political body who, according to our republican institutions, form the sovereignty…They are what we familiarly call the ‘sovereign people,’ and every Citizen is one of this people, and a constituent member of the sovereignty…”

Please not in the above case that our form of government is a REPUBLIC!

Lansing v. Smith (1829) 4 Wend. 9, 20:  “People of a State are entitled to all rights which formerly belonged to the King by his prerogative.”

(The word ‘Prerogative’ means, “Exclusive right; a distinctively superior advantage.”)

Hancock v. Terry Elkhorn Mining Co., Inc., Ky., 503 S.W. 2d 710. Ky Const. §4 Commonwealth Ex Rel.  Hancock v. Paxton. Ky..516 S.W. 2d pg 867 [2] CI 3,:  “It is true that at [English] common law the duty of the Attorney General was to represent the King, he being the embodiment of the state.  But under the democratic form of government now prevailing the People are King so the Attorney General’s duties are to that Sovereign rather than to the machinery of government.”

Afroyim v. Rusk, 387 U.S. 253 (1967):  “In the United States the people are sovereign and the government cannot sever its relationship to the people by taking away their Citizenship.”

The People vs. Herkimer 15 Am Dec 379, 4 Cowen (N.Y. 345, 348 (1825)):  “The People, or the Sovereign are not bound by general words in statutes, restrictive of prerogative right, title or interest, unless expressly named.  Acts of limitation do not bind the King nor the People.  The People have been ceded all the Rights of the King, the former Sovereign…It is maxim of the common law that when an act of parliament is made for the public good, the advancement of religion and justice, and to prevent injury and wrong, the king shall be bound by such an act, though not named; but when a statute is general, and any prerogative right, title or interest would be divested or taken from the King (or the People) in such case he shall not be bound.”

Hale vs. Henkle 201 U.S. 43 at 74:  “the individual may stand upon his Constitutional rights as a Citizen.  He is entitled to carry on his private business in his own way.  His power to contract is unlimited.  He owes no duty to the state or to his neighbors to divulge his business or to open his doors to investigation…He owes no duty to the State, since he receives nothing there from, beyond the protection of his life and property.  His rights are such as existed by the Law of the Land, long antecedent to the organization of the State, and can only be taken from him by due process of the law and in accordance with the Constitution.  He owes nothing to the public so long as he does not trespass upon their rights.”

The Siren vs. U.S. 74 U.S. 152:  “It is the doctrine of the common law, that the Sovereign cannot be sued in his own court without his consent.”

Julliard v. Greenman, 110 U.S. 421:  “There is no such thing as a power of inherent Sovereignty in the government of the United States.  In this country sovereignty resides in the People, and Congress can exercise no power which they have not, by their Constitution entrusted to it:  All else is withheld.

Harcourt v. Gaillard, 25 U.S. (12 Wheat, 523, 526, 527):  “Each [state] declared itself sovereign and independent, according to the limits of its territory…The soil and sovereignty within their acknowledged limits were as much theirs at the Declaration of Independence as at this very hour.

Blair v. Ridgely, 97 D. 218, 249, S.P., People v. Coleman, 60 D. 581:  “Prior to the adoption of the federal Constitution, states possessed unlimited and unrestricted sovereignty and retained the same ever afterward.  Upon entering the Union they retained all their original power and sovereignty, except such as was surrendered to the federal government or they were expressly prohibited from exercising by the United States Constitution.”

Yick Wo vs. Hopkins and Woo Lee vs. Hopins, 118 U.S. 356:  Sovereignty itself is, of course, not subject to law for it is the author and source of law:”  “…While sovereign powers are delegated to the agencies of government, sovereignty itself remains with the People, by whom and for whom, all government exists and act.”

Billings v. Hall, 7 CA. 1:  “Under our form of government, the legislature is NOT supreme.  It is only one of the organs of that ABSOLUTE SOVEREIGNTY which resides in the whole body of the PEOPLE; like other bodies of the government, it can only exercise such powers as have been delegated to it, and when it steps beyond that boundary, it acts…are utterly VOID.”

Glass v. The Sloop Betsy, 3 Dall 6:  “In Europe, the executive is synonymous with the sovereign power of a state…where it is too commonly acquired by force or fraud, or both…In America, however the case is widely different.  Our government is founded upon a compact.  Sovereignty was, and is, in the people.”

Please make a note below: the term “person” as reflected in Title 1, and Title 26 Federal Income, does NOT include the sovereign [you, a natural person].  So what is a person?  A business, as defined in Title 26 and as such, fall under the jurisdiction of Title 26, to be taxed.  Recall in prior blogs that I mentioned that the IRS was allowed by the Congress to create it’s own language and unique definitions, called the “Peshar” method, in order to mislead the people.

1 USC §1, n 12, United States vs. Fox, 94 U.S. 315:  “Since in common usage, the term ‘person’ does not include the sovereign, statutes not employing the phrase are ordinarily construed to exclude it.”

California, Title I, Article I, §100:  “The sovereignty of the State resides in the people thereof.”

Redfield v. Fisher, 292 Oregon 814, 817:  “The individual, unlike the corporation, cannot be taxed for the mere privilege of existing.  The Corporation is an artificial entity which owes its existence and charter power to the state, but the individual’s right to live and own property are natural rights for the enjoyment of which an excise cannot be imposed.”

Colonial Pipeline Co. v. Triagle, 421 U.S. 100 (1975):  “…Income tax statutes apply only to state created creatures know as Corporations no matter whether, state, local or federal.”

United States v. Morris, 125 F. Rept. 325, 331:  “Citizens under our Constitution and laws mean free inhabitants [not subjects]…Every citizen and freeman is endowed with certain rights and privileges, to enjoy which no written law or statute is required.  These are fundamental or natural rights, recognized among all free people…That the right to…accept employment as a laborer for hire as a fundamental right is inherent in every free citizen, and is undisputable…”

Lynch v. Household Finance Corp., 405 U.S. 538. (1970):  “…The right to enjoy property without unlawful deprivation, is…a ‘personal’ right, whether the ‘property’ in question is a welfare check, a home, or a savings account.  In fact a fundamental interdependence exists between the person’s right to liberty and the personal right in property.  Neither could have meaning without the other.

So now we come to the 14th Amendment citizen as legislated by the Congress, separate and distinct from the American born Citizen.  Notice that American born natural people are capitalized with a large “C” while the naturalized citizen is not.

The 14th Amendment citizen

Prior to the 14th Amendment of 1868, residents of the Possessions and Territories “belonging to” the [District] United States, defined in the 2nd previously Hooven definition, had no citizenship.  In law, they were referred to as “inhabitants.”  Also, the newly freed slaves were born without citizenship and were not citizens.  In the same manner that a child who is born in the 50 states to “naturalized” citizens, becomes a “natural born” Citizen, black Americans born after the 14th Amendment was ratified were “natural born” Citizens of the state in which they were born.  The 14th Amendment’s use of the word “person” has also been extended by the courts to include [limited to] corporations, which are “juristic” persons.  The 14th Amendment (which was illegally ratified by many states at gunpoint) gave these in habitants and persons a new class of citizenship that did not exist prior to the 14th Amendment, referred to as “citizens of the United states subject to the jurisdiction thereof” or “citizens of the United states subject to its jurisdiction.”  In other words, 14th amendment citizens are slaves, subject to income tax since they are not natural persons, but “juristic” persons.”  American born citizens are NOT “subject to the jurisdiction thereof,” and are therefore not persons, but natural persons.

Amendment 14:  All persons born or naturalized in the United States and subject to the jurisdiction thereof are citizens of the United States and of the state wherein they reside.  No State shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty or property without due process of the law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction to equal protection of the laws.”

The phrase, “subject to the jurisdiction thereof” means completely subject to.  That is, those persons born in Territories over which the United States is exclusively sovereign (as limited by Const. Art. I, Sec. 8, Cl. 17).

In reference to the 14th Amendment the 1884 Supreme Court stated: Again, please make not that the United States mentioned here is not the sovereign 50 states, but the federal legislated United States of: Guam, Puerto Rico, Virgin Islands, American Samoa.

In the 1884 Supreme Court case below, the court affirmed that naturalized citizens are “subject” to the jurisdiction, and are there slaves!

Elk v. Wilkins, 112 U.S. 94, 101, 102 (1884):  The persons declared to be citizens are “all persons born or naturalized in the United States and subject to the jurisdiction thereof.”  The evident meaning of these last words is, not merely subject in some respect or degree to the jurisdiction of the United States, but completely subject…”

Blacks Law dictionary, 6th Edition defines “subject to,” as follows:

Subject to:  “Liable, subordinate, subservient, inferior…”

Compare with this:

Sovereign:  Having supreme, rank, authority, independent power…indisputable…being above all others…having dominion, power, authority…rightful status of independence and prerogative…greatest in degree.”

The natural born citizens of the 50 states already had sovereign Citizenship, as is evidenced in, Article II, §1, Cl. 5 of our original Constitution:  No Person except a natural born Citizen or a Citizen of the United States…”

United States v. Wong Kim Ark, 169 U.S. 649, 687, 688:  “…The 14th Amendment is throughout affirmative and declaratory, intended to ally doubts and to settle controversies which had arisen, and not to impose any new restrictions upon citizenship.”

Slaughter House Cases, 16 Wall. 36, 72, 73, 74 (1873):  [Prior to the 14th Amendment]…”it had been said by eminent judges that no man was a citizen of the United States except as he was a citizen of one of the States composing the Union.  Those, therefore, who were born and always resided in the District of Columbia or in the Territories, though within the United States, were not citizens…[After the 14th Amendment]…”the distinction between citizenship of the United states and citizenship of a state is clearly recognized.  Not only may a man be a citizen of the United States without being a citizen of a state [i.e., born in the District of Columbia], but an important element is necessary to make the former [a citizen of the United States] the latter [a citizen of the state].  He must reside in the state to make him a citizen of it, but it is only necessary that he should be born or naturalized in the United States to become a citizen of the [United States] Union...”

Van Valkenburg v. Brown, 43 Cal 43, 47 (1872):  No white person born within the limits of the United States and subject to their jurisdiction…or born without those limits, and subsequently naturalized under their laws, owes his status of citizenship to the recent amendments to the Federal Constitution.  The purpose of the 14th Amendment…was to confer the status of citizenship upon a numerous class of persons domiciled within the limits of the United States who could not be brought within the operation of the naturalization laws because native born, and whose birth, though native, at the same time left them without citizenship.  Such persons were not white persons, but in the main were of African blood, who had been held in slavery in this country…

Because the Sovereigns were born as Citizens, the 14th Amendment could not and did not pertain to them.  They did not need citizenship granted as they were “natural bornpreamble Citizens rather than citizens created by legislation.  Their rights were endowed by God and unalienable.

Perkins v. Elg, 99 F. 2d 408, 410 (1938):  When the Constitution was adopted, the people of the United States were the citizens of the several states for whom and for whose posterity the government was established.”

Because the 14th Amendment federal government citizenship was the result of a grant from the legislature, United States citizens, subject to its jurisdiction were “granted” legislative civil rights as opposed to “endowed” unalienable Rights.

82 CA 369, 375, 255 P 760:  “A ‘civil right’ is considered a right given and protected by laws, and a person’s enjoyment thereof is regulated entirely by the law that creates it.” This means that by legislation, the Congress can strip away your rights as they are not endowed under the Constitution!

This recent 1993 Federal Court ruling in Denver, Colorado below clearly differentiates state citizen’s unalienable rights from the privileges and immunities of the 14th Amendment citizen of the federal government:

Jones v. Temmer, 829 F. Supp. 1226:  The privileges and immunities clause of the 14th Amendment protects very few rights because it neither incorporates the Bill of Rights nor protects all rights of individual citizens. (See Slaughter House cases, 83 U.S. (16 Wall.) 36, 21 L. Ed. 394. (1873). Instead this provision protects only those rights peculiar to being a citizen of the federal government:  It does not protect those rights which relate to state citizenship.”

The Internal Revenue Service has mislead us into believing that Citizens of the 50 states are the subjects of Title 26, Subtitle A, §1 of the Internal Revenue Code, which imposes a non-apportioned graduated individual Income Tax on “citizens.”  Which “citizen” is defined in the 1st Code of Federal Regulations, which interprets and implements the Internal Revenue Code?

Please note that CFR stand for “Code of Federal Regulations.”

26 CFR §1.1-1(c):  who is a citizen:  Every person born or naturalized in the United States and subject to its jurisdiction is a citizen.

3A AM Jur 1420, Aliens and Citizens:  “A Person is born subject to the jurisdiction of the United States, for purposes of acquiring citizenship at birth, if this birth occurs in a territory over which the United States is sovereign…”

The citizen of the [District] United States, subject to its jurisdiction, is taxed on his or her income, both within and without the [District] United States.  However, 26 IRC §911(a)(1)(2), as of March 31, 2007, creates an exclusion from gross income of up to $80,000 per year [§911(b)(2)(A) of such foreign earned income (income earned in the 50 states, unless if working for any government agency).  There is also an exclusion for total housing costs, not to exceed 16% of the salary (without regard to the $80,000 limit for bona fide residents of foreign countries or sister states).  Such citizens must make separate elections to receive the foreign earned income exclusions and the housing exclusion.  Foreign earned income does not include earned income from U.S. Government sources or income earned by federal Government employees.  A naturalized citizen can sever their “subject” U.S. citizen status by becoming a naturalized Citizen of the state where they live.  The proper form for non-government income earned outside [without the U.S] of the [District] United States is the 2555 (Foreign Earned Income Form.

Disclaimer Disclaimer Disclaimer!

First, this blog you have just read is not an excuse for YOU to NOT file your Federal and State Income Tax every year!  Unless you know Federal and State Income Tax laws thoroughly [and you don’t] and have a great defense attorney, File your returns, pay your taxes every year, and just know that you will have to be satisfied knowing the truth, and that your government is lacking in communicating to the public the truth.  Truthfully, very few lawyers know of this, and those that do, are those who win their legal cases before the U.S. Supreme Court!  This blog is for your education!

Know that the U.S. Congress serves two masters: the 50 Republics [Sovereign Countries] known as the united States of America [U.S. Supreme Court case Hooven v. Evatt, 324 U.S. 674] covered under the Constitution, and the Federal Government seated in Washington D.C., a foreign country!  Two very different animals, however, presented to the public as one, and therein adds to more deliberate confusion.  Like I said, I can’t cover it all down in one simple blog, but I will cover this over many future blog.

I will change the pace in my next blog and cover something entirely different.  I trust however, that you can see that all is not what it appears to be to the casual observer.  It matters not who you elect to the White House or in Congress; all serve the same master and are here to deceive and control you.  There are great deceptions wherever you may look, in every industry; nothing is what it appears to be!  Until then, keep reading…
