Basic Lesson into your Strawman 

          Your straw man (Strawman) is an artificial person created by the corporate government at the of your birth, the inscription of an ALL-CAPITAL LETTERS NAME on your birth certificate/document, which is a document of title and a negotiable instrument. Your lawful, Christian name of birthright was replaced with a legal, corporate name of deceit and fraud. Your name in upper and lower case letters (Jane Mary Doe) has been answering when the legal person, your name in ALL-CAPTIAL LETTERS (JANE MARY DOE), is addressed, and therefore the two have been recognized as being one and the same. When, you Jane Mary Doe, the lawful being distinguish yourself as another party than the legal person, the two will be separated. Legally, since your birth your artificial person, has been considered a slave or indentured servant to the various federal, provincial and municipal governments via your STATE-issued, STATE-created birth certificate in the name of your all-caps person. Your birth certificate was issued so that  the issuer could claim "exclusive" title to the legal person created. This was further compounded when you voluntarily obtained a driver's license and a SSN (Social Security Number). The state even owns your personal and private life through your STATE-issued marriage license/certificate issued in the all-caps names. You have had no rights in birth, marriage, nor will you have them even in death unless you re-capture your straw man. (The names on tombstones in cemeteries are in all-caps.) The STATE holds the title to your legal person it created via your birth certificate, until Jane Mary Doe, the rightful owner, the holder in due course of the instrument, that is yourself, reclaims/redeems it.


          On April 5, 1933, then President Franklin Delano Roosevelt, under Executive Order, issued April 5, 1933, declared: "All persons are required to deliver on or before May 1, 1933 all Gold Coin, Gold Bullion, & Gold Certificates now owned by them to a Federal Reserve Bank, branch or agency, or to any member bank of the Federal Reserve System."

James A. Farley, Postmaster General at that time, required each postmaster in the country to post a copy of the Executive Order in a conspicuous place within each branch of the Post Office. On the bottom of the posting was the following:



$10,000 fine or 10 years imprisonment, or both, as provided in Section 9 of the order.


          Section 9 of the order reads as follows: "Whosoever willfully violates any provisions of this Executive Order or of these regulations or of any rule, regulation or license issued thereunder may be fined not more than $10,000, or if a natural person, may be imprisoned for not more than 10 years, or both; & any officer, director or agency of any corporation who knowingly participates in any such violation may be punished by a like fine, imprisonment, or both.

NOTE: Stated within a written document received September 17, 1997, from the U.S. Department of Justice, Office of Legal Counsel, Office of the Deputy Assistant Attorney General, Richard L. Shiffin, in response to a FOIA, was the following: "A fact that is frequently overlooked is that Executive Orders & proclamations of the President normally have no direct effect upon private persons or their property, & instead, normally constitute only directives or instructions to officers or employees of the Federal Government. The exception is those cases in which the President is expressly authorized or required by laws enacted by the Congress to issue an Executive order or proclamation dealing with the legal rights or obligations of members of the public. Such as issuance of Selective Service Regulations, establishment of boards to investigate certain labor disputes, & establishment of quotas or fees with respect to certain imports into this country."

Note: it seems rather obvious that President Franklin D. Roosevelt was not "expressly authorized or required" to "issue an Executive Order or proclamation" demanding the public (private) to relinquish their privately held gold.

          The order (proclamation) issued by Roosevelt was an undisciplined act of treason. Two months after the Executive Order, on June 5, 1933, the Senate & House of Representatives, 73d Congress, 1st session, at 4:30 p.m. approve House Joint Resolution (HJR) 192: Joint Resolution To Suspend The Gold Standard & Abrogate The Gold Clause, Joint resolution to assure uniform value to the coins & currencies of the United States.

HJR-192 states, in part, that "Every provision contained in or made with respect to any obligation which purports to give the oblige a right to require payment in gold or a particular kind of coin or currency, or in any amount of money of the United States measured thereby, is declared to be against public policy, & no such provision shall be contained in or made with respect to any obligation hereafter incurred. Every obligation, heretofore or hereafter incurred, whether or not any such provisions is contained therein or made with respect thereto, shall be discharged upon payment, dollar for dollar, in any such coin or currency which at the time of payment is legal tender for public & private debts."

          HJR-192 goes on to state: "As used in this resolution, the term 'obligation'means an obligation (including every obligation of & to the United States, excepting currency) payable in money of the United States; & the term 'coin or currency' means coin or currency of the United States, including Federal Reserve notes & circulating notes of Federal Reserve banks & national banking associations."

HJR-192 superseded Public Law (what passes as law today is only "color of law"), replacing it with public policy. This eliminated our ability to PAY our debts, allowing only for their DISCHARGE. When we use any commercial paper (checks, drafts, warrants, federal reserve notes, etc.), & accept it as money, we simply pass the unpaid debt attached to the paper on to others, by way of our purchases & transactions. This unpaid debt, under public policy, now carries a public liability for its collection. In other words, all debt is now public.

          The United States government, in order to provide necessary goods & services, created a commercial bond (promissory note), by pledging the property, labor, life & body of its citizens, as payment for the debt (bankruptcy). This commercial bond made chattel (property) out of every man, woman & child in the United States. We became nothing more than "human resources" & collateral for the debt. This was without our knowledge &/or our consent. How? It was done through the filing (registration) of our birth certificates!

          The United States government -actually the elected & appointed administrators of government -took (& still do, to this day) certified copies of all our birth certificates & placed them in the United States Department of Commerce ... as registered securities. These securities, each of which carries an estimated $1,000,000 (one million) dollar value, have been (& still are) circulated around the world as collateral for loans, entries on the asset side of ledgers, etc., just like any other security. There's just one problem, we didn't authorize it.

          The United States is a District of Columbia corporation. In Volume 20: Corpus Juris Sec. § 1785 we find "The United States government is a foreign corporation with respect to a State" (see: NY re: Merriam 36 N.E. 505 1441 S. 0.1973, 14 L. Ed. 287). Since a corporation is a fictitious "person" (it can not speak, see, touch, smell, etc.), it can not, by itself, function in the real world. It needs a conduit, a transmitting utility, a liaison of some sort, to "connect" the fictional person, & fictional world in which it exists, to the real world.

LIVING people, exist in a real world, not a fictional, virtual world. But government does exist in a fictional world, & can only deal directly with other fictional or virtual persons, agencies, states, etc.. In order for a fictional person to deal with real people there must be a connection, a liaison, & a go-between. This can be something as simple as a contract. When both "persons," the real & the fictional, agree to the terms of a contract, there is a connection, intercourse, dealings, there is a communication, an exchange. There is business! But there is another way for fictional government to deal with the real man & woman: through the use of a representative, a liaison, & the go-between. Who is this go-between, this liaison that connects fictional government to real men & women? It's a government created shadow, a fictional man or woman ... with the same name as ours.

This PERSON was created by using our birth certificates as the MCO (manufacturer's certificate of origin) & the state in which we were born as the "port of entry". This gave fictional government a fictional PERSON with whom to deal directly. This PERSON is a straw man (strawman).

STRAMINEUS HOMO: Latin: A man of straw, one of no substance, put forward as bail or surety. This definition comes from Black's Law Dictionary, 6th. Edition, page 1421. Following the definition of STRAMINEUS HOMO in Black's we find the next word, straw man (Strawman). STRAWMAN: A front, a third party who is put up in name only to take part in a transaction. Nominal party to a transaction; one who acts as an agent for another for the purposes of taking title to real property & executing whatever documents & instruments the principal may direct. Person who purchases property for another to conceal identity of real purchaser or to accomplish some purpose otherwise not allowed.

          Webster's Ninth New Collegiate Dictionary defines the term "strawman" as: 1: a weak or imaginary opposition set up only to be easily confuted 2: a person set up to serve as a cover for a usually questionable transaction. The straw man (Strawman) can be summed up as an imaginary, passive stand-in for the real participant; a front; a blind; a person regarded as a nonentity. The straw man (Strawman) is a "shadow", a go-between. For quite some time a rather large number of people in this country have known that a man or woman's name, written in ALL CAPS, or last name first, does not identify real, living people. Taking this one step further, the rules of grammar for the English language have no provisions for the abbreviation of people's names, i.e. initials are not to be used. As an example, John Adam Smith is correct. ANYTHING else is not correct. Not Smith, John Adam or Smith, John A. or J. Smith or J. A. Smith or JOHN ADAM SMITH or SMITH, JOHN or any other variation. NOTHING, other than John Adam Smith identifies the real, living man. All other appellations identify either a deceased man or a fictitious man: such as a corporation or a STRAW MAN (STRAWMAN).

(See this video and consider both sides of the presentation: The "Straw Man" Fallacy)

          Over the years government, through its "public" school system, has managed to pull the wool over our eyes & keep US ignorant of some very important facts. Because all facets of the media (print, radio, television) have an ever-increasing influence in our lives, & because media is controlled (with the issuance of licenses, etc.) by government & its agencies, we have slowly & systematically been led to believe that any form/appellation of our names is, in fact, still us: as long as the spelling is correct. WRONG!

We were never told, with full & open disclosure, what our government officials were planning to do & why. We were never told that government (the United States) was a corporation, a fictitious "person". We were never told that government had quietly, almost secretly, created a shadow, a STRAW MAN (STRAWMAN) for each & every AMERICAN, so that government could not only "control" the people, but also raise an almost unlimited amount of revenue - so it could continue not just to exist, but to GROW. We were never told that when government deals with the STRAW MAN (STRAWMAN) it is not dealing with real, living, men & women. We were never told, openly & clearly with full disclosure of all the facts, that since June 5, 1933, we have been unable to pay our debts. We were never told that we had been pledged (& our children, & their children, & their children, & on & on) as collateral, mere chattel, for the debt created by government officials who committed treason in doing so. We were never told that they quietly & cleverly changed the rules, even the game itself, & that the world we perceive as real is in fact fictional -& it's all for their benefit. We were never told that the STRAW MAN (STRAWMAN) -a fictional person, a creature of the state -is subject to all the codes, statutes, rules, regulations,ordinances, etc. decreed by government, but that WE, the real man & woman, are not. We were never told we were being treated as property, as slaves (albeit comfortably for some), while living in the land of the free -& that we could, easily, walk away from the fraud.




          There's something else you should know: Everything, since June 1933, operates in COMMERCE! Commerce is based on agreement, contract. Government has an implied agreement with the straw man (Strawman) (government's creation) & the straw man (Strawman) is subject to government rule, as we illustrated above. But when we, the real flesh & blood man & woman, step into their "process" we become the "surety" for the fictional straw man (Strawman). Reality & fiction are reversed. We then become liable for the debts, liabilities & obligations of the straw man (Strawman), relinquishing our real (protected) character as we stand up for the fictional straw man (Strawman).

          So that we can once again place the straw man (Strawman) in the fictional world & ourselves in the real world (with all our "shields" in place against fictional government) we must send a nonnegotiable (private) "Charge Back" & a nonnegotiable "Bill of Exchange" to the United States Secretary of Treasury, along with a copy of our birth certificate, the evidence, the MCO, of the straw man (Strawman). By doing this we discharge our portion of the public debt, releasing US, the real man, from the debts, liabilities & obligations of the straw man (Strawman). Those debts, liabilities & obligations exist in the fictional commercial world of "book entries", on computers &/or in paper ledgers. It is a world of "digits" & "notes", not of money & substance. Property of the real man once again becomes tax exempt & free from levy, as it must be in accord with HJR-192.

          Sending the nonnegotiable Charge Back & Bill of Exchange accesses our Treasury Direct Account (TDA). What is our TDA? Let's go to Title 26 USC & take a look at section 163(h)(3)(B)(ii), $1,000,000 limitation: "The aggregate amount treated as acquisition indebtedness for any period shall not exceed $1,000,000 ($500,000 in the case of a married individual filing a separate return)."

This $1,000,000 (one million) account is for the straw man (Strawman), the fictional "person" with the name in all caps &/or last name first. It is there for the purpose of making book entries, to move figures, "digits" from one side of ledgers to the other. Without constant movement a shark will die & quite ironically, like the shark, there must also be constant movement in commerce, or it too will die. Figures, digits, the entries in ledgers must move from asset side to debit side & back again, or commerce dies. No movement, no commerce.

          The fictional person of government can only function in a fictional commercial world, one where there is no real money, only fictional funds ... mere entries, figures, & digits.

A presentment from fictional government -from traffic citation to criminal charges -is a negative, commercial "claim" against the straw man (Strawman). This "claim" takes place in the commercial, fictional world of government. "Digits" move from one side of your straw man (Strawman) account to the other, or to a different account. This is today's commerce.

In the past we have addressed these "claims" by fighting them in court, with one "legal process" or another, & failed. We have played the futile, legalistic, dog-&-pony show -a very clever distraction -while the commerce game played on.

          But what if we refused to play dog-&-pony, & played the commerce game instead? What if we learned how to control the flow & movement of entries, figures, & digits, for our own benefit? Is that possible? And if so, how? How can the real man in the real world, function in the fictional world in which the commerce game exists?

There are TWO of you.

Do you realize that there are TWO of you? There's a Man, Jaro Henry Smith, and then there's a statutory PERSON, JARO HENRY SMITH. And which you are AT THE MOMENT, depends on what you are doing.

So if you're using some benefits of the corporate STATE, then you're the statutory person JARO HENRY SMITH because you're doing something under the JURISDICTION of the STATE. BUT if you're doing something BY RIGHT, then you're a Man Jaro Henry Smith, who's protected by the organic Constitution.

Remember, in US it is generally recognized that you can be a citizen of more than one nation. So it follows that you can be BOTH, a federal US citizen, as well as sovereign State/USA Citizen. Which one applies depends on what you're doing at the moment, whether it's under the jurisdiction of the federal STATE or under jurisdiction of the state of the Union.

Most people don't realize this, especially in court, since they always charge you as the statutory person. For example, if you bought your car with Federal Reserve Notes, you ONLY have a legal title to that car, while the State has the equitable title, so you are subject to State's Vehicle Code, as the statutory person NAME.

But if you bought that car with LAWFUL MONEY, like US coins, then you have a FULL title to that car (legal+equitable), so you are NOT subject to the Vehicle Code, because you're NOT using State benefit when operating that car on public roads.

So they should not charge you with any VC violation, but if they do, you can deny EVERYTHING, because whatever happened, happened OUTSIDE of their jurisdiction. I.e. it wasn't JARO who did what they allege, but it was Jaro who did that. In other words, they can't attach to you the statutory person JARO, if what happened was outside of their jurisdiction, UNLESS you volunteer.

So you might ask the judge "Sir, are you asking JARO the defendant, or Jaro the man?" And if he says the defendant, then you can tell him that nothing in those allegations is true, because JARO the defendant was NOT even present at the alleged violation, because it was outside of the State's jurisdiction where only Jaro the man was present. So if they want to charge Jaro the man, they can file common law charges and present a verified complaint of the injured person.

It's kinda like having a health club membership; you're ONLY subject to the club's rules when you're on its PRIVATE property or using club's equipment. Outside of that, club's rules DON'T APPLY. And being a federal US citizen is a PRIVATE citizenship of District of Columbia, which doesn't apply unless you're using benefits of MUNICIPAL CORPORATIONS.


Oh, and since you can't change the statutory jurisdiction that the statutory PERSON/defendant is being charged under, your claim as a Man, needs to be done under a COUNTER-CLAIM. I.e. "I a man claim that the STATE has no jurisdiction over my PRIVATE property which was bought with lawful money US coins..."

Gotta realize that while under statutory jurisdiction they CAN'T see Jaro the man, conversely under common law jurisdiction, they can't see the artificial person JARO. So you gotta bring the counter-claim as a man, under common law. And the only way to do that, is if you have an equitable claim.

In other words, under statutory jurisdiction (Public Policy), the court doesn't care what the man did or didn't do, just what happened in commerce, which is the ONLY place where the artificial person JARO, exists. Which means that under common (Public) law, the court doesn't care what happened in commerce, just what the man Jaro did in the real world.

So under statutory jurisdiction, one wouldn't be lying if he said that he even weren't at the place of the Code violation, because the statutory person JARO was NOT there, since there only was the man there, using his PRIVATE property which he bought with lawful money US coins. Just remember, when you appear generally by admitting to be the defendant, you're no longer a man Jaro, just a statutory person JARO.

 And only the man Jaro has constitutional/unalienable rights.

So you first gotta have an EQUITABLE claim, such as a car bought with US coins,and then you can challenge the court's jurisdiction BASED ON that equitable claim, OR make a COUNTER-CLAIM.

Oh and I believe that the reason why courts have been ignoring State Citizenship/sui juris claims in the past, is because people didn't have an equitable claim to back it up. They just can't recognize someone who's operating in commerce, as a sovereign.



Your birth documentation should be straightforward and transparent, however it soon becomes the most complex and secretive paper trail imaginable. This alone suggests a long history of corruption. The process involves a maze of secret Trusts and various parts of legislation, focused on claiming your Estate.

When you are born (given life), a “Record of Live Birth” is created as evidence of your Life. The New Zealand equivalent is a “Notification of Birth for Registration”. It is your Affidavit of Life, with details that identify your living standing. It records your given name as a unique “Title”, i.e. John, to your Estate. (Your Estate is the “land”, or property, of your mind, body, and soul, and all the physical and intellectual property that derives from your living energy, including your in-born unalienable rights.) Your Mother’s autograph establishes the origin of your Estate (an Estate must come before a Trust). In Common Law (the Law of the “Land”), your Mother and the State are automatically Trustees in an “expressed” Sovereign Trust with you as the Beneficiary. You are the holder in “expectancy” of your Estate, which will descend to you as of right when you attain the “age of majority” (20), unless …

Soon, your parents are told that you “must” be registered. They are under no such lawful obligation, but the State is insistent for reasons undisclosed. According to Ecclesiastical Law an Estate can only be held in Trust by a man. But your Mother was asked for her maiden name, constituting “Maternity”. [MATERNITY. It is either legitimate or natural. The former is the condition of the mother who has given birth to legitimate children, while the latter is the condition of her who has given birth to illegitimate children. Maternity is always certain, while the paternity (q.v.) is only presumed. – Bouvier’s Law Dictionary, 1856 Ed.] Therefore, all naturally born children are illegitimate (bastards) with uncertain fatherhood, having no paternal holder of their Estate. When registering, an “Informant” (unknowingly) makes an accusation as to your illegitimacy. [INFORMANT. A person who informs or prefers an accusation against another. – Black’s Law Dictionary, 2nd Ed.] The Status of Children Act 1969, 2. says ‘For the purposes of this Act marriage includes a void marriage’. So you are legally a bastard without rights. [BASTARD. 4. Considered as nullius filius, a bastard has no inheritable blood in him, and therefore no estate can descend to him. – Bouvier’s Law Dictionary, 1856 Ed.] Moreover, your “given name” (Title) is recorded in the “still-born” column. [A stillborn child is one … incapable of living … if they do not in fact survive so long as to rebut this presumption of law, they cannot inherit. – Black’s Law Dictionary, 2nd Ed.] The State can now legally claim your Estate, making you a “Ward of the State” in an “estates for life” Foreign Situs Trust. [ESTATE. 9.-2. The estates for life created by operation of law are … 4th. Jointure. … The estate for life is somewhat similar to the usufruct of the civil law. – Bouvier’s Law Dictionary, 1856 Ed.] “Jointure” (joinder) is similar to “usufruct” (right to derive income from property of another).

The Record of Live Birth is used to issue a Birth Certificate Bond, certifying that a property “Title” is registered as a Security. It is like a Warehouse Receipt for the baby, the delivered goods. [WAREHOUSE RECEIPT. A warehouse receipt, which is considered a document of title, may be a negotiable instrument used for financing with inventory as security. – Black’s Law Dictionary, 7th Edition]. At the same time, your “given name” and family name have been registered as a tradename. Only corporations have a “last name”. A legal “person” has been issued by the State as a franchise child of the parent corporation.

The Bond is sold to the World Bank (Bank for International Settlements, created in 1931 by the Vatican) as Settlor of the Trust. Your value to society is calculated using actuarial tables. Your Bond becomes a registered Security, which the Treasury uses as Surety for Treasury securities such as Treasury Bonds, Notes and Bills.

So you have been monetized. The people truly are the “Credit of the Nation”. However, in the corrupted system, the people’s credit is effectively “human capital”, or “livestock”.

Although the State can seize the baby as a “Ward of the State” if the State’s “investment” is threatened, its greatest value is realized from the “matured” working adult. The perpetrators of this deception know that you could one day discover the truth and invoke your Power of Attorney from the age of 18. Property Law Act 2007, Section 22.(1) ‘Person between 18 and 20 years may do certain things, … (c) accept appointment, or act, as an attorney, 22.(2) … has the same effect as if the person were 20 years old.’ In short, you can attain the age of majority (20) by declaring your own Power of Attorney from the age of 18. But if they can somehow “kill” you off, again, legally speaking, they can continue to hold your “deceased Estate” Titles: real property (lands), personal property (life), and spiritual property (soul).

When you reach full legal age under the Admiralty Maritime jurisdiction, which is the “Law of the Sea”, you become eligible to “register” your Estate as a “vessel” navigating on the “sea of commerce” with you as the Master (Mr/Mrs/Ms). Your “vessel” will have a legal “person” NAME such as MR JOHN DOE, and as the Master you will be the liable “owner”, while the State retains the “legal title” with the “powers of management” as the Registrar.

You will probably “voluntarily” forfeit your Estate. You may start work and register as a “taxpayer”, or you may enroll as a “voter” on a voting register. If you decide not to register, you have “gone to sea”, and if you are missing for seven years you are declared legally dead. The same process is applied to ships and mariners lost at sea. To avoid court proceedings, the Cestui Que Vie Act 1666, simply declared that everyone is dead after an absence of seven years, unless they return to claim their Estate. After seven years, you “died” without a will “Intestate”, so someone is appointed to manage your Estate/Trust. The Public Trust applies to the Family Court to manage your Estate under the ‘Protection of Personal and Property Rights Act 1988, Section 11. Form PPPR 6 Application for order to administer property’.

Under the first Sovereign Trust established by your Mother, you are the “holder in due course” of your Estate, and a future Creditor. As a private man/woman, you are the Executor/Beneficiary of your Common Law Estate Trust, and all oath-bound officials are your Public Trustees. But under the new Foreign Situs Trust, the State gains the “legal title” (right of possession) to your Estate, while the legal “person” only has the “equitable title” (right of use). The legal “person”, as a creation of the indebted State, is also a Debtor. Any man/woman who mistakenly takes responsibility for the legal “person” NAME and its debts steps into the role of the State as the liable Trustee. The State has turned the tables on you.

The People, by registration (legalisation), are employed by the State as debtors for a private banking cartel, which is upheld by a private Bar Association Guild (Law Society). While “acting” in the legal fiction “role” of your corporatised NAME, you will receive endless presentments (bills), which that employee of the State, the legal “person” (Strawman) is obliged to settle.

But the theft of your Estate is based on false presumptions that cannot be proven in fact. The fundamental flaw is that in order for a Birth Certificate to be issued, a man or woman must first have been born on the land. Plainly, you are not really dead, so you are still the living “holder in due course” of YOUR Estate Title. Under the Cestui Que Vie Act 1666, IV ‘If the supposed dead Man proves to be alive, then the Title is revested.’

Remember that only you have a “birthday” on which you were born into the world from your Mother. Whereas the artificial legal“person” has a “date of birth” on which it was registered by the Registrar. These two events usually have different dates! (see your Registration Print-out)

Maxim of Law: “He who fails to assert his rights has none”.


*** Provided tools for one to see what your corporate government is doing to you and how they took your Birth Certificate, the Title to your fiction! I hope you gain some knowledge and understanding!***
