The sentence: “Sections 81-131 of this chapter show the territorial composition of districts and divisions by counties as of January 1, 1945,” is an invitation to the reader to use his or her visual power to see (“show”) the territorial composition of what will be presented in those Sections (81-131) as groups of counties.
The sentence: “Sections 81-131 of this chapter show the territorial composition of districts and divisions by counties as of January 1, 1945,” does exactly what it says. The totality of Sections 81-131 shows the reader the territorial composition of any district or division that will be identified by county or counties in any one section.
The sentence: “Sections 81-131 of this chapter show the territorial composition of districts and divisions by counties as of January 1, 1945,” must be considered and accounted for because it is part of the law. Nothing in written law can be ignored or eliminated without changing the whole law.
If a person cannot understand and explain the sentence: “Sections 81-131 of this chapter show the territorial composition of districts and divisions by counties as of January 1, 1945,” that person does not know and cannot explain what the law means.

These are the first two pages of an 11page lesson on the Constitution. Students get this lesson and many others when they enroll.
COLOR OF LAW
COLORING the CONSTITUTION
THE CONSTITUTION IN LIVING COLOR
No one will dispute this fact: This Constitution was written in a secret Constitutional Convention. No attempt was ever made to discover all the secrets of the Constitution until now. The Constitutional Coloring Book will allow you to see what has been hidden within the Constitution for more than 220 years. The application of a little color will magically draw out every secret that has been buried in this venerable document. The truth will finally come out—drawn out by you.
Here are just a few secrets that will be revealed to you:
· There are no less than 5 Presidents in the Constitution.
· The President Elect has never taken the proper oath to the Office of President.
· No President has ever taken an oath to support the written Constitution.
· The President elected by the Electors appoints the President of the United States.
· George Washington established the precedent of appointing himself to be President of the United States.
· The Commander in Chief in this Constitution is not the President of the United States.
· The Chief Justice is not a Judicial Officer.
· The legislative power of Congress is limited Washington, D. C., federal territory and the possessions of the United States of America.
· The United States Supreme Court is not a Judicial Court.
· Washington, D. C. and Puerto Rico are considered to be States of the Union.
All you know about the Constitution is what you have been told and what you have been told is all wrong. Government is broken and can’t be fixed because no one knows what the government law that put it together really is. We can all agree that unconstitutional laws are void—what can be done with an unconstitutional Constitution?
George Washington appointed himself President of the United States by taking the oath of Office of President of the United States. In that oath Washington promised to “preserve, protect and defend” the Constitution of the United States. George Washington presided over the Constitutional Convention, so we can be sure that he knew “preserve, protect and defend” does not mean “to support.” The Article VI oath “to support this Constitution” means to adopt “this Constitution,” and no President of the United States or member of Congress has ever taken an oath “to support this Constitution.” An unconstitutional Constitution is a constitution that is not “this Constitution.”
The Constitution of the United States is an inventory of the territory and other property belonging to the United States of America. The Constitution of the United States is simply an unconstitutional Constitution, because it is not “this Constitution.”
Your ability to read is all that will survive a year after you end your formal education. Unless you have been trained to be a mathematician, scientist or engineer, how you think will depend on what you see and what you listen to. George Washington made it impossible for most people to see the Office of President, Office of President of the United States and President of the United States of America as three different Offices. All education in America perpetuates the melding of the Presidents into one man and as a consequence written law has been perverted into what the judiciary says it is.
Because you have learned to read the way government wants you to read, the folklore of the Constitution persists as written slogans. The phrase: “the supreme Law of the Land” is repeated everywhere until the Constitution is believed to be the law above all law everywhere. The Constitution, as black letter law, is the supreme law for government and the land government can govern but it isn’t law for people and the land they own. The Constitution binds the States of the Union, but it isn’t the law for the President of the United States and the Congress, because not one person in government has ever sworn an oath “to support this Constitution,” as required in Article VI of the Constitution.
Written law must be reserved for the exclusive use of government, so it is written with substantial limitations as to persons and most important—territory. Government makes written laws for those who consent to be governed. The government secret? You don’t have to consent to be governed. You can govern yourself—you can preside over your own life and be your own President.
Reading in black and white and being told what you have read is over. The Constitution is about to get a color makeover and you are going to apply the colors.
You are, now, going to learn how to read and understand the correct and original intent of the Constitution by the application of a little living color. The most important fact you will learn about the Constitution is that it is not about you nor is it about any place where you will likely live.
The Constitution adds some embellishments to two existing governments: First, a government for the Land of the inhabitants and settlers of the Northwest Territory and any future federal territory and Second, an expansion of the government of the States under the Articles of Confederation.
Al Capone was indicted for various tax crimes in 1931 in the Eastern Division of the Northern District of Illinois. Al Capone’s attorneys could have beat that case if they had known what I am teaching in these posts and my law school.
Today Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich is facing pending charges in the same court. Rod Blagojevich can beat the feds with the following facts:
The Sixth Amendment to this Constitution for the United States of America states fundamental law that the United States Government must follow even though this Constitution has not been adopted by the President and Congress of the United States.
In all criminal prosecutions, the accused shall enjoy the right to a speedy and public trial, by an impartial jury of the State and district wherein the crime shall have been committed, which district shall have been previously ascertained by law, and to be informed of the nature and cause of the accusation; to be confronted with the witnesses against him; to have compulsory process for obtaining witnesses in his favor, and to have the assistance of counsel for his defence. Sixth Amendment
The President of the United States and the Congress of the United States follow the Sixth Amendment to a degree, but they refuse to follow it to show that neither the President nor Congress have sworn an oath “to support this Constitution.”
While the Sixth Amendment clearly applies to “all criminal prosecutions,” jury trials are frequently denied where imprisonment may be for less than six months.
In all felonies the Sixth Amendment must be followed, however, attorneys are so incompetent that they neglect to use the most obvious safeguards of the amendment.
The Sixth Amendment requires, “an impartial jury of the State and district wherein the crime shall have been committed, which district shall have been previously ascertained by law.”
This is where the most important sentence in federal law comes in: “Sections 81-131 of this chapter show the territorial composition of districts and divisions by counties as of January 1, 1945.” This sentence satisfies the Sixth Amendment requirement of a district previously ascertained by law. Sections 81-131 are comprised of Alaska and Hawaii, 48 States, Puerto Rico and Washington, D. C. The district and divisions must be the government land found within the counties.
The date January 1, 1945, is and will always be previous to any current indictment date and fixes Alaska and Hawaii as Territories, government owned.
The alleged crime must have been committed within the district and the grand and petit jurors must also be “of the State and district wherein the crime shall have been committed.”
The Supreme administrative and legislative Court agrees that statute law requires every person charged by a federal indictment opportunities to inspect the jury records to determine if they satisfy the requirements of federal law and the Sixth Amendment.
An unqualified right of a litigant to inspect jury lists held required not only by the plain text of the provisions of the Jury Selection and Service Act of 1968, 28 U.S.C. 1867 (f), allowing the parties in a case “to inspect” such lists at all reasonable times during the “preparation” of a motion challenging compliance with jury selection procedures, but also by the Act’s overall purpose of insuring “grand and petit juries selected at random from a fair cross section of the community, 28 U.S.C. 1861.” 420 U.S. 28 (1975)
I am offering anyone who can get the electronic media to do a story on this Sixth Amendment defense a free year of tuition in my law school.

State of Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich will fight, fight, fight until he takes his last breath. I have been helping him by posting the problems that all written law crimes pose.
Written law is always limited to a certain territory, which must be identified in that written law. The most important sentence in federal law is: “Sections 81-131 of this chapter show the territorial composition of districts and divisions by counties as of January 1, 1945.” I have devoted a post to that sentence, so anyone who wants more on that can become a student or buy the CD book, What Happened to Justice? Why You Can’t Get Justice in Federal Courts and What to Do About It, which is available from www.sedm.org
The United States district courts are limited to the government territory located within the counties that make up the districts and divisions. Any indictment brought against Rod Blagojevich would have to be brought within the district where the alleged crimes were committed. Congress can only make laws for the United States and as the reader will note the United States is not everything found between the Pacific and Atlantic and Canada and Mexico. For the beginner who is confused between the United States and the United States of America, both the complaint and any indictment must be brought by the United States of America, as plaintiff.
Now that Governor Blagojevich has vowed to fight to his last breath, we can use his defense as a lesson for everyone battling written law. To prepare for the coming lessons, read and understand everything posted

The recent admission of negligence by federal Securities and Exchange Commission Chairman Christopher Cox of negligence in overseeing the activities of Bernard Madoff provides just the most recent evidence of that government is broken beyond repair.
The SEC was created by President of the United States Franklin Delano Roosevelt to protect investors from being cheated by the companies whose stock was to be regulated by the SEC.
Regulatory bodies like the SEC are part of the military government headed by the President of the United States. I teach that the United States Government has grown pursuant to the authority claimed by the President of the United States to administer the territory and other property belonging to the United States of America.
George Washington, the first President of the United States, broke the Government of the United States, in favor of the United States Government, he and insiders in the Congress would create legislatively. The military take over of the government under the Articles of Confederation was necessary, so he could collect taxes for the Congress of the United States.
Washington broke the civilian government by taking the oath of Office of President of the United States instead of the oath of office to the Office of President.
Washington was elected to the Office of President on February 4, 1789, but he took the oath of Office to the Office of President of the United States on April 30, 1789, the exact date Washington broke the government under the Articles of Confederation. All current written laws are being made under the authority of a military commander. The President of the United States is Commander in Chief pursuant to statutory authority created by Congress. The U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission is a result of the exercise of that military authority.
The Ponzi scheme created by Bernard Madoff will not be the biggest ever that distinction will go the United States Government.

Yesterday, December 15, 2008, the Presidential Electors met in their respective states and in the District of Columbia to record their votes for the Presidential candidates the U.S. voters voted for on November 4.th
Prior to the voting by the Electors, the official popular State vote for President of the United States and Vice President were set out in Certificates of Ascertainment and they were sent to Congress.
The Certificates of Vote record the votes of the Electors and what a tale they tell. These Certificates authenticated by the Governor of each State certify electoral votes for President of the United States of America, President of the United States or a combination of the two. A student should collect all 51 Certificates of Vote and determine who won what Office. In time, all the necessary documentation will be available at the National Archives:
Those who like to sue the government should look into this fertile field of presidential litigation.
If we are to have a President of the United States of America to exercise the executive power, he or she has to be picked someway. The Presidential Electors is as good a method as any. We should, however, forget the fantasy that the whole thing is a democracy it is not.
George Washington forever turned the President of the United States into a military dictatorship that is finally unraveling.

The State of Illinois legislature is embarking on impeachment proceedings against Governor Rod Blagojevich based on the following Article of the State’s Constitution:
ARTICLE IV – THE LEGISLATURE, SECTION 14. IMPEACHMENT
The House of Representatives has the sole power to conduct legislative investigations to determine the existence of cause for impeachment and, by the vote of a majority of the members elected, to impeach Executive and Judicial officers. Impeachments shall be tried by the Senate. When sitting for that purpose, Senators shall be upon oath, or affirmation, to do justice according to law. If the Governor is tried, the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court shall preside. No person shall be convicted without the concurrence of two-thirds of the Senators elected. Judgment shall not extend beyond removal from office and disqualification to hold any public office of this State. An impeached officer, whether convicted or acquitted, shall be liable to prosecution, trial, judgment and punishment according to law.
State of Illinois impeachment appears to be taken from Article I Section 3 Clause 6 and 7:
The Senate shall have the sole Power to try all Impeachments. When sitting for that Purpose, they shall be on Oath or Affirmation. When the President of the United States is tried, the Chief Justice shall preside: And no Person shall be convicted without the concurrence of two thirds of the Members present.
Judgment in Cases of Impeachment shall not extend further than to removal from Office, and disqualification to hold and enjoy any Office of honor, Trust or Profit under the United States: but the Party convicted shall nevertheless be liable and subject to Indictment, Trial, Judgment and Punishment, according to law.
I teach that impeachment pursuant to Article I of the Constitution of the United States is different from an Article II impeachment under the Constitution for the United States of America.
Current events in the State of Illinois politics will confirm that my teaching that there are two different forms of impeachment. Today in a press conference Speaker of the State of Illinois confirmed that there are no standards to follow in impeachment of the governor.
I teach that one of the big distinctions between the Office of President of the United States and the Office of President is the absolute power in the legislature to remove the person in the Office of President of the United States. The Governor of the State of Illinois holds an Office comparable to that of the Office of President of the United States.
Governor Rod Blagojevich can’t be charged with a crime because no qualified grand or petit (trial) jurors can be found in Illinois. He can be impeached for any reason or no reason at all.

Being a domiciliary of the State of California is a requirement for a trial juror in Section 203 of the State of California Code of Civil Procedure.
The 4th Edition of Black’s Law Dictionary was published the year I started law school, 1968. That dictionary defines “domiciliary” as pertaining to domicile; relating to one’s domicile or existing, created at, or connected with domicile. The same dictionary defines “domicile” as “that place where a man has his true, fixed and permanent home.”
Black’s Law Dictionary does not provide a definition for the State of California. Any regular dictionary will define “State” as particular politically organized body of people usually occupying a definite territory. We know the State of California’s only territory is what is owned by the United States of America. Is “your” State one that requires domiciliaries or some other kind of inhabitant of government land? The State of Illinois requires jurors to be citizens of the United States of America. What a great way for Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich to beat the feds and the State of Illinois–challenge every State juror on citizenship and every federal juror on residence within the Northern District.
The founding document of the United States of America is the Articles of Confederation. It is the second Organic Law of the United States of America and if you check it out involved no transfer of any territory.
A few years ago I figured out that I didn’t live in the State of California and that I was born in Arizona and not the State of Arizona. Based on that I was able to register as an elector rather than as a voter. Shortly after I became an elector, I received a questionaire to be a juror. I answered that I was not a U.S. citizen or a resident of Los Angeles County.
After I voted I received a letter telling me that I was going to be investigated for voting without citizenship. I stopped voting after that and a couple of years ago I stopped receiving sample ballots.
The county sheriff may be the only common law officer we need, so we hardly need an election to pick one.

Thinking is a great opportunity to learn, so learning to think like a lawyer is a great opportunity to learn the law.
Everyone is thinking about the Presidency, but those thoughts have little to do with provable facts. In this exercise, we start with the fact that George Washington was the first President of the United States, or was he?
First, how do we establish that George Washington was the first President of the United States? We can get unanimous, if not universal agreement, that George Washington was a living person between the years 1732 and 1799. The President of the United States is mentioned in this Constitution along with a reference to the Office of President of the United States. The Constitution for the United States of America was presented to the Continental Gongress on September 17, 1787.
A president is a person who presides. Could George Washington be a President of the United States based on the foregoing facts? We can say that it would be possible, but we would need more facts to be sure.
Based on the facts presented in this post and on other facts in website, I have concluded that George Washington was the first person to take the oath of Office of President of the United States and he was the first President of the United States. We cannot prove he was the first President of the United States of America or that he was qualified to hold the Office of President.
I started to learn to think like a lawyer in 1968 when I started law school, but it took me 30 years of practice to be able to teach the process. I would like to know, from you, how am I doing? Are you starting to think like a lawyer?

Scooter Libby may have had the only fair jury trial of recent memory. He was found guilty and part of the sentence was commuted by President of the United States George W. Bush. Scooter Libby was tried in the one place in America where plenty of lawful federal jurors can be found.
I hope that you have learned that the English common law is the law in 49 of the states and that law is not in a written form. Though the common law has been the subject of many books it is ultimately found written on every human heart. This is where every common law juror finds the law to be applied to the case.
It should be obvious why written law must be the appropriate law for State government, but is totally inappropriate for the people who live in a state. It may be politically incorrect, but it is true that only God can make the laws for a free people.
I have shown in other posts how the phrase “United States” has come to mean the assets belonging to the United States of America. The President of the United States takes an oath to “protect, preserve and defend the Constitution of the United States,” which means that the President of the United States is to be a protector of property rather than a defender of the people and their rights.
Few people know that the written Constitution is referred to as “this Constitution” and the assets of the United States of America are referred to as “the Constitution of the United States.” This Constitution in Article IV Section 3 provides for the admission by the Congress of new States into this Union, so that the President of the United States can administer the property of the United States in the States of this Union, which includes the State of Illinois. Over time government territory and other property in the States of the Union has shrunk to an insignificant amount.
The system known to us as the United States Government can function reasonably well, until the proper administration of criminal justice is contemplated. The honest execution of justice requires lawful jurors and that is where there is a complete breakdown in the State of Illinois.
The mismatching of the common law, the state, the State and written law makes it impossible to have an honest and fair trial for Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich or anyone else, by jury, anywhere in America.
