Top 10 Chains that Bind Us – How the Crown Rules the World

Subject: How the Crown Rules the World


There are two Crowns operant in England, one being Queen Elizabeth II.

Although extremely wealthy, the Queen functions largely in a ceremonial capacity and serves to deflect attention away from the other Crown, who issues her marching orders through their control of the English Parliament.

This other Crown is comprised of a committee of 12 banks headed by the Bank of England (House of Rothschild). They rule the world from the 677-acre, independent sovereign state know as The City of London, or simply 'The City.'

The City is not a part of England, just as Washington, D.C. is not a part of the USA.

The City is referred to as the wealthiest square mile on earth and is presided over by a Lord Mayor who is appointed annually.

When the Queen wishes to conduct business within the City, she is met by the Lord Mayor at Temple (Templar) Bar where she requests permission to enter this private, sovereign state. She then proceeds into the City walking several paces behind the Mayor.

Her entourage may not be clothed in anything other than service uniforms.

In the nineteenth century, 90% of the world's trade was carried by British ships controlled by the Crown. The other 10% of ships had to pay commissions to the Crown simply for the privilege of using the world's oceans.

The Crown reaped billions in profits while operating under the protection of the British armed forces. This was not British commerceor British wealth, but the Crown's commerce and the Crown's wealth.

As of 1850, author Frederick Morton estimated the Rothschild fortune to be in excess of $10 billion [today, the combined wealth of the banking dynasties is $300 trillion]. Today, the bonded indebtedness of the world is held by the Crown.

The aforementioned Temple Bar is the juristic arm of the Crown and holds an exclusive monopoly on global legal fraud through their Bar Association franchises. The Temple Bar is comprised of four Inns of Court. They are; the Middle Temple, Inner Temple, Lincoln's Inn, and Gray's Inn. The entry point to these closed secret societies is only to be found when one is called to their Bar.

The Bar attorneys in the United States owe their allegiance and pledge their oaths to the Crown. All Bar Associations throughout the world are signatories and franchises to the International Bar Association located at the Inns of Court of the Crown Temple.

The Inner Temple holds the legal system franchise by license that bleeds Canada and Great Britain white, while the Middle Temple has license to steal from America.

To have the Declaration of Independence recognized internationally, Middle Templar King George III agreed in the Treaty of Paris of 1783 to establish the legal Crown entity of the incorporated United States, referred to internally as the Crown Temple States (Colonies). States spelled with a capital letter 'S' denotes a legal entity of the Crown.

At least five Templar Bar Attorneys under solemn oath to the Crown, signed the American Declaration of Independence. This means that both parties were agents of the Crown. There is no lawful effect when a party signs as both the first and second parties. The American Declaration was simply an internal memo circulating among private members of the Crown.

Most Americans believe that they own their own land, but they have merely purchased real estate by contract. Upon fulfillment of the contract, control of the land is transferred by Warranty Deed. The Warranty Deed is only a 'color of title.' Color of Title is a semblance or appearance of title, but not title in fact or in law. The Warranty Deed cannot stand against the Land Patent.

The Crown was granted Land Patents in North America by the King of England. Colonials rebelled at the usurious Crown taxes, and thus the Declaration of Independence was created to distract and pacify the poplulace.

Another ruse used to hoodwink natural persons is by enfranchisement. Those cards in your wallet bearing your name spelled in all capital letters means that you have been enfranchised and have the status of a corporation. A 'juristic personality' has been created, and you have entered into multi-variant unilateral agreements that place you in an equity relationship with the Crown.

These invisible contracts include, birth certificates, citizenship records, employment agreements, driver's licenses and bank accounts. It is perhaps helpful to note here that contracts do not now, nor have they ever had to be stated in writing in order to be enforceable by American judges. If it is written down, it is merely a written statement of the contract.

Tax protestors and (the coming) draft resistors trying to renounce the parts of these contracts that they now disagree with will not profit by resorting to tort law (fairness) arguments as justification. Judges will reject these lines of defense as they have no bearing on contract law jurisprudence. Tort law governs grievances where no contract law is in effect.

These private agreements/contracts that bind us will always overrule the broad general clauses of the Constitution and Bill of Rights (the Constitution being essentially a renamed enactment of English common law). The Bill of Rights is viewed by the Crown as a 'bill of benefits,' conferred on us by them in anticipation of reciprocity (taxes).

Protestors and resistors will also lose their cases by boasting of citizenship status. Citizenship is another equity agreement that we have with the Crown. And this is the very juristic contract that Federal judges will use to incarcerate them. In the words of former Supreme Court Justice Felix Frankfurter, "Equity is brutal, but we are merely enforcing agreements." The balance of Title 42, section 1981 of the Civil Rights Code states that, "…citizens shall be subject to like punishment, pains, penalties, taxes, licenses, and exactions of every kind".

What we view as citizenship, the Crown views as a juristic enrichment instrumentality. It also should be borne in mind that even cursory circulation or commercial use of Federal Reserve Notes effects an attachment of liability for the payment of the Crown's debt to the FED. This is measured by your taxable income.

And to facilitate future asset-stripping, the end of the 14th amendment includes a state of debt hypothecation of the United States, wherein all enfranchised persons (that's you) can be held personally liable for the Crown's debt.

The Crown views our participation in these contracts of commercial equity as being voluntary and that any gain accrued is taxable, as the gain wouldn't have been possible were in not for the Crown. They view the system of interstate banks as their own property. Any profit or gain experienced by anyone with a bank account (or loan, mortgage or credit card) carries with it – as an operation of law – the identical same full force and effect as if the Crown itself had created the gain.

Bank accounts fall outside the umbrella of Fourth Amendment protection because a commercial contract is in effect and the Bill of Rights cannot be held to interfere with the execution of commercial contracts. The Crown also views bank account records as their own private property, pursuant to the bank contract that each of us signed and that none of us ever read.

The rare individual who actually reads the bank contract will find that they agreed to be bound by Title 26 and under section 7202 agreed not to disseminate any fraudulent tax advice. This written contract with the Crown also acknow-ledges that bank notes are taxable instruments of commerce.

When we initially opened a bank account, another juristic personality was created. It is this personality (income and assets) that IRS agents are excising back to the Crown through taxation.

A lot of ink is being spilled currently over Social Security.

Possession of a Social Security Number is known in the Crown's lex as 'conclusive evidence' of our having accepted federal commercial benefits. This is another example of an equity relationship with the Crown. Presenting one's Social Security Number to an employer seals our status as taxpayers, and gives rise to liability for a reciprocal quid pro quo payment of taxes to the Crown.

Through the Social Security Number we are accepting future retirement endowment benefits. Social Security is a strange animal. If you die, your spouse gets nothing, but rather, what would have gone to you is divided (forfeited) among other premium payers who haven't yet died.

But the Crown views failure to reciprocate in any of these equity attachments as an act of defilement and will proceed against us with all due prejudice.

For a person to escape the tentacles of the Crown octopus, a thoroughgoing study of American jurisprudence is required. One would have to be deemed a 'stranger to the public trust’ and forfeit all enfranchisement benefits and close all bank accounts, among other things.

Citizenship would have to be made null and forfeit and the status of 'denizen' enacted. If there are any persons extant who have passed through this fire, the publisher would certainly appreciate hearing from them.



Our History lesson begins in 1066 in jolly ol’ England… And remember, this article is just a quantum leap to you doing your own research…

Prior to the year 1066 the people of England held Allodial title to their land. Not even the king could take their from them land for not paying a tithe. William the Conquer came in 1066 and stole the King’s Title and took control of the land of the people.

Between William I, 1066, to King John, 1199, England was in dire straits and bankrupt.

The King invoked the Law of Mortmain, the "dead man’s hand", so people couldn’t pass their land on when they died to the church or anyone else without his, the King’s, permission and his cut (modern day probate?).

Without the Law of Mortmain the King would lose the land that he controlled. The Vatican didn’t like that because the King owed the Vatican a lot of English pounds.1

King John refused to accept the Vatican’s representative, Stephen Langton, whom Pope Innocent III appointed to rule England (religiously or in fact?)2

In 1208 England was placed under Papal interdict. (Interdict means a prohibition.)

King John was excommunicated and in order to regain his stature with the Pope he returned his title to England and Ireland, as a vassal to the Pope, and swore loyalty in submission to him.

King John accepted Langton as the Archbishop of Canterbury and offered a vassal’s bond of fealty and homage to the Pope. Two months later, in July of 1213, King John was absolved of excommunica-tion, at Winchester, by the returned Archbishop Langton, of Canterbury.

On October 3, 1213, by treaty, King John, ratified the transfer of his kingdoms to the Pope, who, as Vicar of Christ, claimed ownership of everything and everyone on earth, as a Christian tradition.

Question 1. Where in the Bible did Jesus give any man this kind of power over all men and the land? He didn’t. He did not create a religion nor did he create the office of Pope.

Question 2. Can a third party break a contract between you and another person under duress..? No. Don’t those of you who are forced into a contract reserve all your rights under modern UCC 1-308, and claim UCC 1-103?

The contract (Treaty of 1213) was between two parties. The King of England and the Vatican Pope.

Now the Barons of England, not wanting to be slaves anymore, took to the sword and forced King John to sign the Magna Charta. So when they created the Magna Charta, the Barons violated the principles of natural law, having no force and effect upon the Treaty of 1213, a contract between two parties.

So the party contracting with the King, Pope Innocent III, declared the Magna Charta "… unlawful and unjust as it is base and shameful… whereby the Apostolic See is brought into contempt, the Royal Prerogative diminished, the English outraged, and the whole enterprise of the Crusade greatly imperiled." — Quoted from G.R.C. Davis: Magna Charta. Trustee of the British Museum. London. 1965.

The Pope, in order to introduce strife in England and Ireland that would help him, used Jesus teachings to his advantage that are verified in the Gospels by two of His Apostles.

So Levy the son of Alphaeus (Mark 2:14; Luke 5:27) – alias Matthew – cites Jesus at Matthew 10:34-36 and Luke 12:49, 51-3. Nothing reveals the antithesis of government and religion more clearly than these facts.

Question 3. What did the contract of 1213 A.D. create? A TRUST. Only the two parties, the King’s heirs and the Pope, can break the contract, for a Trust/Contract cannot be broken as long as there are heirs to both sides of the contract.

Now we know who controlled the Kings of England and the whole land of the world, for we have the Pope claiming the Western Hemisphere and Europe, for the Western Roman Church.

The Holy See of Antioch [the Eastern Orthodox church] ruled in the east, and the Holy See of Alexandria ruled in the west, so there was a conflict.3

Then the King’s explorers came to America and claimed dominion over the land by deceiving and killing the native American Indians.

The King fundtioned under the treaty of 1213 and everything was going well until the 1770’s when a small group of rogues called the "Founding Fathers" decided that they wanted the benefits but not the tax obligations of the King. They – being esquires and professionally educated men – must have known that they were still under the Pope’s control.

Their lies and fraud would now affect the American colonies and the people who lived on the land. The people who fought in the American Revolution were unaware that the treaty of 1213 still ruled, despite their belief that the Magna Charta was a viable work.4

The Declaration of Rights of 1689 stated the Rights of the British subjects in England, and at the end of this declaration, Section III stated "…that should any of the Rights just mentioned be in violation of the HOLY ALLIANCE (1213 Treaty), …it is as if this Declaration was never written".

Therefore, the English Declaration didn’t fly. So what makes you think the 1774 Declaration of Rights in this British Colony would work. Weren’t these people doing the same thing to King George, as the Barons did in 1215 to King John?

A contract is a contract. Look at Article 1, Section 10, Clause 1 of the U.S. Constitution. Can anyone obligate anyone to a contract? Did the "founding fathers" form a contract between two parties who still have heirs living today?

Question 4. How important is the "ultimate benefactor", the Pope, The HOLY SEE, in the scheme of things today? Move through history till modern times and pull Public Law 88-244, following Public Law 88-243 – the institution of the law-merchants Uniform Commercial Code. Are you shocked that the Pope is listed in this Public Law?

Doesn’t the United States have an ambassador in the Vatican? Why? Is it not a government like all other nations such as France, Japan, Spain or Brazil? The Vatican runs the world, it controls the British Crown. Is it any wonder they separate man’s Church and government? They don’t talk about the Lord Almighty’s Church (government) do they.5

Organized churches ("church organizations") are given special tax privileges because the Vatican dictates to the sixty United States trustees through the trust document, the U.S. Constitution created by the 1783 treaty in Paris, that ended the Revolutionary Way, between the King, frontman for the Vatican, and Adams, Hartly, Laurens, and Franklin who were operating for the King, and not for the people of America.

Look at Article VI of the Constitution for the United States for your answer as stated in the "New History of America".6

We are still under the Pope who rules over all nations as he declared he did back in 1213. The 1783 Treaty of Paris said in the opening statement quoted exactly as it appears in olde English; "It having pleased the Divine Providence to dispose the hearts of the Most Serene and Most Potent Prince, George the Third, by the grace of God, King of the Great Britain, France and Ireland, Defender, of the Faith , Duke of Brunswick and Laurenberg, Arch-Treasurer and PRINCE ELECTOR OF THE HOLY ROMAN EMPIRE, & C. AND OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, …"(Emphasis added in caps).

Did you catch the last few words? This is from a King (man) who can supposedly make no claim over the United States of America because he was defeated. The King claims God gave him the almighty power to say that no man can ever own property because it, "goes against the tenets of his church, the Vatican/Holy Roman Empire, because the King is the "Elector of the Holy Roman Empire’"

What about the secret Treaty of Verona, made the 22nd of November, 1822, which shows the power of the Pope and the Vatican’s interest in the US Republic.

Here is part of The Secret Treaty of Verona. "The undersigned specially authorized to make some additions to the treaty of the Holy Alliance, after having exchanged their respective credentials, have agreed as follows:

ARTICLE I. The high contracting powers being convinced that the system of representative government is equally as incompatible with the monarchical principles as the maxim of the sovereignty of the people with the divine right, engage mutually, in the most solemn manner to use all their efforts to put an end to the system of representative governments, in what ever country it may exist in Europe, and to prevent its being introduced in those countries where it is not yet known.

ARTICLE 2. As it cannot be doubted that the liberty of the press is the most powerful means used by the pretended supporters of the rights of nations to the detriment of those of princes, the high contracting parties promise reciprocally to adopt all proper measures to suppress it, not only in their own state but also in the rest of Europe.

ARTICLE 3. Convinced that the principles of religion contribute most powerfully to keep nations in the state of passive obedience which they owe to their princes, the high contracting parties declare it to be their intention to sustain in their respective states, those measures which the clergy may adopt with the aim of ameliorating their own interests, so intimately connected with the preservation of the authority of the princes; and the contracting powers join in offering their thanks to the Pope for what he has already done for them, and solicit his constant cooperation in their views of submitting the nations."

Do we have a false God before us and worship him and his church instead of the real Lord, Jesus and his government. The divine right of kings exists in the U.S. President and every Governor of the states in corporate Union. Let me go on record and say that the Lord gave me the same right as the Pope claims was given to him. Am I not a Steward upon the land of the Lord as a mere sojourner, the same as the Pope? Are not you also a Steward upon the land?

Did the Lord make a covenant with Adam and Eve to subdue the earth and reign over the animals and to populate the earth? Doesn’t that contract still exist? And doesn’t it exist with you also? And can we not, as true believers in that contract, dump all the nation’s (man’s) laws in the ocean and reclaim our rightful place on this earth under the Natural Law of our Lord to thwart the contract between King John and the Pope that appears to defeat the original contract the Lord made with mankind?

Yes, let us go back to the original contract and destroy the Vatican’s control over everybody. Before 1066 the Pope did not claim all the land, for the people claimed the land and didn’t pay taxes on it to anybody. Didn’t the Lord say to the people after coming out of Egypt, "why do you want a king when you have me and my contract?"

Which Lord do you want to live under, a Pope, a King, a President, Governors, Senators, Representatives, or a real Lord called Jesus Christ. "Christians" are ridiculed and put down because they correctly read the Word of the Lord and could defeat even the best the Pope has to throw at them.

The King James version of the Bible is just that. A version concocted by the King under the guidance of the Pope in order to hide the truth. I was taught by the church, which is government controlled per the treaty of 1213 as reiterated in the 1783 Treaty between The Pope’s Elector, King John and the First President of the United States, Sam Huntington and Charles Thompson, Secretary.

I read the passage, when Jesus was on the cross, from a very old manuscript that said, "Forgive them NOT, for they know what they do."

This is different than what most people believe he said, "Forgive them for they know not what they do." [I could think of better examples of the alteration and twisting of scripture but this point is valid; scripture has been altered ] When men write, transcribe, translate, update, and copy over thousands of years they sometimes alter the interpretation, and insert their own meanings. You can see this in just the 200 years that our country became separated from England, but still remains a colony, under a different compact and the use of clever words.

Allodial title and Eminent domain:

Why and where did "eminent domain" begin? Right after the King’s government was formed here in America. Eminent domain replaced the English Law of Mortmain, and when government wanted your land they claimed "eminent domain" to destroy that to which people think they have title. Title only existed in America when the King granted the use of the land to the likes of William Penn. But it could be taken at any time.

Are you or were your great, great, great grandfathers ever free to hold land that could never be taken away? Ask some of today’s farmers and see how many lost their farms to the government that belonged to their past family, when none of the land went back to the 1789 era.

Read Revelations. A common Protestant practice is to call the book "Revelations" when its actually "Revelation" or more correctly the "Revelation of St John the Divine" (there’s that divine word again! – he was not the John who was the friend of Jesus – that’s another John).

The usage of that plurarized name comes from hearing too many Protestant preachers mispronounce the book’s name… The book is technically not of Christian origin. Its a first century Jewish text in the genre of the Jewish Apocalyptic writings of the time, of which there were many.

Rome had a habit of vacuuming up cultures it conquered and appropriated their writings, gods, and art. For example Rome imported the Greek gods and renamed them. Judea was sacked by Romans and the temple was desecrated with pigs blood and destroyed. To Jews at the time it seemed the end of the world, it was certainly the end of their world as they knew it. They sought deliverance from God. It almost didn’t make it into the Bible canon, probably because of its thinly veiled references to Rome. Catholic Priests don’t refer to it much.

Who is the "Harlot" in Revelations?

Does the Vatican come close with a mortal calling himself the "vicar" of Christ?

Here is the definition of vicar in Webster’s 1828 American Dictionary of the English Language.

Vicar: "In a general sense, a person deputed or authorized to perform the functions of another; a substitute in office."

The Pope PRETENDS to be vicar of Jesus Christ on earth.

Pretend; To hold out as a false appearance; to offer something feigned instead of that which is real; To exhibit as a cover for something hidden.

The Pope has something to hide. He is no more powerful than you or I am. You. The King is no more powerful than You. The American President and Governor’s are no more powerful than You. You allow THEM to run your lives …WHY?

You cannot fight the Pope or the King on their contract even though you are affected by that contract. You must go elsewhere for relief. Remember the first contract in history, God with Adam and Eve?

You were a part of it as an heir and it’s your saving grace. Why do you think the "courts of common law" are despised and Government and States are taking action to stop them? See where the power lies when this happens? The President, the Governors, and Congress of the United States, and the Legislatures of the several states, are only following orders, delegated to the 60 United States Trustees, who always show up in bankruptcy mostly generated by the IRS. This is a starting point.

What do Trustees administer? A trust. The Constitution is a public trust. It was created by the 1783 Treaty of Paris. It is not a private man’s contract/trust. Only those entering into the contract are UNDER the trust and are bound by its Constitution.

Look up the definition of "under" in words and phrases of a good dictionary such as Webster’s 1828 at Vol. II, 101.

I am not "under" the corporate trust (constitution) drafted in secrecy by the King and his corporate esquires, miscalled "Founding Fathers" who were controlled by the Treaty of 1213, whereby the Vatican ruled over all. The Constitution does not apply to me, nor to you, nor will it ever.

However, some of the representatives of the states, in 1776, realized that the Constitution was a commercial contract among the Founding Fathers to protect their financial interests in the Americas and in Europe.

The Articles of the Bill of Rights were designed to keep corporate citizens of the United States who are bound by the Constitution/contract from encroaching upon my natural Law Rights.

With this in mind you might now see where the IRS gets its purported power that makes you liable to the IRS, since you claim to be UNDER their constitution; but they will never admit it; because only a few know this real reason; and they are not about to tell their agents this fact.

The same goes for any license issued to you by the corporate States. Yet you always fall back into their trap by claiming citizenship of the United States AND THE STATES.

No! You are not a citizen of the corporate or organic State if you want to be free. You cannot claim it is your constitution and remain free. You cannot claim represent-atives in the legislatures and remain free.

How about your estate? State and Estate come from the same contract. Webster’s 1828 Dictionary defines it thusly;

ESTATE, n. 1. In a general sense, fixedness; a condition; now generally written and pronounced state. 6. The general interest of business or government; hence a political body; a commonwealth; a republic.

In this sense we use State. We are holding the "estate" of the King called our estate. Belong to a body politic and you are a slave. A "republic" is a fraud, for you belong to the estate of the King which makes you a law-merchant holding the King’s land, as his trustee, land that he holds in trust for the Vatican.

The States are the "estate" of the Vatican/King Cabal, with the money changers along for the ride. A Consortium including the Congress, the President, and the Governors, et al.

Once you realize the truth and let go of all that you were taught in the government scgiiks, and by the preachers, you are no longer a drowning man grasping at lies to stay afloat.

Do you wondered now why you are ignored in the courts while pleading case law and their constitution for relief?



[1] (WHY?). Because the Pope claimed all lands as the vicar of Christ and the king owed money from the Vatican that was to be collected by the Church of England. The church reduced their parishioners to mere serfdom. When they died the church got the property and the King, in order to preserve what property he had instituted the law of Mortmain. This prevented the people from willing the land to the Pope. When the pope got wind of this he excommunicated the King.

[2] This is a fact that is documented in the English documents of History at the Leeds Library.

[3] The conflict between each of the Holy Sees, one controlling the western front (America) and the other controlling the China side with the dividing line somewhere in Spain and France through Germany. The Pope is the figurehead, remember, and the best way to explain it is that Congress is Alexandria and the Senate is Antioch.

[4] (Why doesn’t the Magna Charta hold more force and effect than a later contract between the king and the Pope? Because the Pope decreed it null and void as it would break the contract he had initiated with the King. The Magna Charta was a contract breaker by third parties and that is a no-no in any law. Besides, the Pope owned England and how could the Barons take the land that the King pledged to the Pope, let alone all the surfs that the Pope still controlled through the church of England? He can’t and so the Magna Charta was declared Void. Now the Pope, through the front man, The King, could create the other contracts called treaties, and no one is the wiser. Remember, the Pope was being controlled by his creditor, The Rothschilds to whom the Pope was indebted.

[5] Why? The "church" of GOD is ‘Government of GOD and man created all these religions and made churches for them. They, man, cannot allow the Government of the Lord "Church upon this rock" to get in the way of the government of men.

[6] "New History of America" by The Informer. You can read this for yourself in American Council of Christian Laymen: How Red Is The Federal Council of Churches, Madison, Wisconsin, 1949. Now you may better understand James Montgomery’s latest as to why all the declarations, Magna Charta, etc. have no effect.

See: James Montgomery’s "British Colony III" on the Internet. To further prove that the declared rights were also at the mercy of any previous charters or grants from the king of England, read section 25 of the 1776 North Carolina Constitution, Declaration of Rights which states; "And provided further, that nothing herein contained shall affect the titles or possessions of individuals holding or claiming under the laws heretofore in force, or grants heretofore made by the late King George II, or his predecessors, or the late lords proprietors, or any of them."

One Response to “Top 10 Chains that Bind Us – How the Crown Rules the World”

  1. Sue says:

    The story is missing one vital element. When John created the Concession of England and Ireland to the Pope, he wrote –
    “…do offer and freely concede to God and His holy apostles Peter and Paul and to our mother the holy Roman church, and to our lord pope Innocent and to his Catholic successors, the whole kingdom of England and the whole kingdom Ireland…”

    He gave England and Ireland back to God. Does not matter that he included the apostles, the Roman church and the Pope – he was the king and gave the kingdom back to the Creator. Does the Pope have the authority to over-ride God and claim what was given to Him? I think not.
