Watch the video below for a short and easy to understand explanation of what the Strawman Is.
Read the quote below!
Essentially, House's quote illuminates the multiple "needs" for imposing Legal Person's status upon us by the Elite. The 'Strawman', also known as the Legal Person or Natural Person is the idea that a Fictitious Legal Entity, called a PERSON, exists for purposes of Law and Commerce. Person and People are very different things. The definition of person never mentions a living sentient man or woman. The closest reference in law dictionaries that you will find to that of a man or woman is "human being."
Legalese is a secret language invented to trick you. It uses English words but attaches secret meanings to those words with the sole intention of stopping you believing that what they are saying to you has nothing to do with the normal meaning in the English language. Their purpose is to FOOL you!
The legal meaning of "person" is not a living, breathing man. It does not exist in reality, but only in fiction. By legal definition, a "person" is an abstract entity, a creation of the mind, such as a corporation, partnership, or trust. "Person" ("persona")="mask". The state, as a corporate abstraction, cannot create real people, but can create the mask they wear, and tax, regulate, and control that creation (mask/person). A "Person" can be whatever government defines it to mean. In this world words are arbitrarily defined and changed at will. Today black can be white, the law of the sea can be the law of the land, private can be "public", foreign can be "domestic"; tomorrow they could be re-defined. An exception is that a "person" can never be a real, living man.
A "person" is a contractual office-holder in a changeable abstraction called "government." Unfortunately, legal force is attached to legal definitions. As a part of government, a "person" is subject to all the whims, machinations, and statutes of the government that defines the term.
The word "person" includes individuals, children, firms, associations, joint adventures, partnerships, estates, trusts, business trusts, syndicates, fiduciaries, corporations, and all other groups or combinations.
The word "person" in legal terminology is perceived as a general word which normally includes in its scope a variety of entities other than human beings. See e.g. 1 U.S.C. sec 1. Church of Scientology v. U.S. Dept. of Justice (1979) 612F.2d 417, 425.
As found in Black's Law Dictionary, Sixth Edition, page 1142
PERSON: In general usage, a human being (i.e. natural person), though by statute term may include labor organizations, partnerships, associations, corporations, legal representatives, trustees, trustees in bankruptcy, or receivers. See e.g. National labor Relations Act, § 2(1), 29 U.S.C.A. § 152; Uniform Partnership Act, § 2.
A person is defined here as various legal entities (ie. a corporation, association, city, partnership, etc.), a human being, an individual, or a natural person. The simplest term to understand is that of any legal entity, such as a corporation. Every legal entity is created by the state itself and under the exclusive authority of the state that created it. Quick look into Title 26 U.S.C. §7343 [Definition of the term "Person"]: The term "person" as used in this chapter [chapter 75] includes an officer or employee of a corporation, or a member or employee of a partnership, who as such officer, employee, or member is under a duty to perform the act in respect of which the violation occurs. Did you get that? The term "person" is defined as "an officer or employee of a corporation, or a member or employee of a partnership". Did you see the words man" or woman"?
At first, this seems like double-talk, but it's not. An individual is a single legal entity as opposed to a corporate entity (made of members who comprise a singular group). None-the-less, a legal entity is simply a legal entity. In reality, the definitions are telling us that an individual is a legal entity, a fiction of "law", with the same legal structure and authority as a corporation, but with only one singular "member". If a flesh and blood man appears before a court answering that he is an individual, he has agreed and stated that he is a legal entity. Also, a look into Title 5 U.S.C. §552a(a)(2) or (a)(13) which shows an ‘individual’ [as legally defined] to be a ‘public officer’ or ‘federal personnel’.
From this definition, there is the distinction that a natural person is not a person created by state law (a legal entity). A natural person is defined here as a human being. Although a human being is not defined as a corporation, both are defined as being a person.
Legal personality (also artificial personality, juridical personality, legal entity and juristic personality) is the characteristic of a non-living entity regarded by law to have the status of personhood.
This PERSON is similar to a Company or Corporation in that it exists as a construct of the imagination - it has no real body, and no soul to save, but for legal purposes, carries similar rights and attributes to that of a Human Man or Woman.
A PERSON has two attributes, a NAME and a Birth Date, both of which are hearsay. Our primary Legal Person, or "ID Card" consists of Birth Date, Eye color, Hair color, Height, Weight, and now Fingerprints and Retina-scans, as if that's all we are. Nowhere on an ID Card are your Soul, or your Personality, or your Hopes, Dreams or Capacity to Love ever mentioned. The legal term "natural person" is still a PERSON, so do not be fooled! When it comes to statutes, codes and regulations, you'll never see any mention of a man or a woman.
When a child is born in the United States (and now all over the world) a birth certificate is registered with the Bureau of Vital Statistics in the State of Birth. The key word here is "registered" as in registered in international commerce. A child then become the surety, whose energy is due at some future date. When the birth certificate is registered in the U.S Department of Commerce, the Department of Treasury issues a bond on the birth certificate ($1,000,000) and the bond is sold at some securities exchange and perhaps bought by the Federal Reserve Bank, which then uses it as collateral in order to issue Federal Reserve Notes or some other form of "debt obligation" (see 18 USC 511). (Obtaining a birth certificate is not required under common law.)
A bond is then held in trust for the Federal Reserve at the Depository Trust Corp. At 55 Water Street in New York, about two blocks down the street from the FED. It is a high rise office building and the sign out front reads "the tower of power". When the birth certificate is issued, a separate legal entity is created, The separate entity, or alter ego (ALL CAPTIAL LETTER NAME) is the "straw man" (See Black's Law 6th edition dictionary) and it is the "accomodation party" of the Uniform commercial code 3-415.
Those all-capital letters do not represent the flesh and blood "Jack Smith” who was born to 'Momma Smith'. Those all cap letters represent the CORPORATE SURROGATE of Jack Smith known as "the strawman" that is REPRESENTING the flesh and blood Jack Smith in the CORPORATE COURT SYSTEM that has replaced Common Law courts, which the government doesn't want you to know about or think had ever existed.
The "name" is credit (see Black's 6th "accommodation party".) Therefore the right (or the use) has been separated from the title or deed.) The "Strawman" holds the title ( he belongs to the government's client who bought the title) and the real live you, flesh and blood man or woman has only naked possessions with the limited "right" to use the things. Maybe that is why our civil rights suits get dismissed out of court on Civil Rule 12(b)(6) motions. This deals with the "failure to state a title upon which relief can be granted." A claim is another word for "title". We have "failed to state upon which relief can be granted". We do not own the "title" to our own bodies anymore. When the straw man (you) violate some rule or statue (for instance a traffic ticket), the flesh and blood, the real you has to appear at the arraignment and admit the straw man's name (credit), and the "energy" surety is due and payable (fine) by the flesh and blood mwn who is in use of the straw man. This is why it is so important to "voluntarily give" your name to the magistrate (court). The defendant is the straw man. The real you, the flesh and blood you is the "offender". Go into a court room and fail to admit to your "NAME" and see how frustrated the Judge gets. The only way they can continue is to create the joinder between you and the NAME. You are not your NAME. And they only have jurisdiction over the NAME.
When you are given a birth certificate an entirely separate legal entity was created. This is called the "strawman". Of course this was done without your knowledge or consent as you were just an infant at the time. Your parents also had no idea their biological property would be used as security to back the fiat paper currency of our nation. The strawman is a fictitious legal entity, created with the hope that when you grew up, you would be fooled into believing that the strawman is actually you. Thus you'd be liable for all of the imaginary costs and liabilities attached to the strawman by these con-artists. It is shown in the ALL CAPITAL letter name displayed on the birth certificate, social security number, driver's license, tax forms, utility bills, and even credit card bills.
"Ignorance of the law is no excuse," is the excuse they use to purport this scheme upon the American people. However, this scheme exists in many other countries, proving just how far spread this deception goes. It comes down to wordplay, also known as legalese. Common words we use every day actually have an entirely different meaning when it comes to law. Yet, because we aren't privy to the knowledge of the "law society", we are so easily duped, via fraud and coercion, into being a part of the scheme. A part of the machine.
When anything is registered with the state, ownership is waived and all you are left with is a title, or a certificate. (i.e, the certificate of live birth, the title to your vehicle.) The registering of a baby's birth actually passes "ownership" of the baby to the government and that allows the State to take the child away from the parents if they ever want to do that. This applies until the child reaches the 'age of maturity' set by the current legal statutes. Doing that is not "lawful" but after the birth has been registered, it is "legal" and there is a world of difference between those two terms, a difference which it is very important that you come to understand clearly. Another way the State can gain ownership of a child is via the Marriage License. With this, the government becomes the principal in a contract involving the three of you, and gain an asset, which is then in the control of the government, the product of that marriage; the biological property; the children.
In Admiralty Law, Vessels documented by registration under the laws of the United States are entitled to privileges and subject to the obligations prescribed by the laws of the United States for merchant vessels.
To start out with, your parents due to their prior birth registration were already considered being registered documented vessels/mentally incompetent wards of the State, being under the guardianship of the State, who by legal marriage, where the State is a third party to the marriage contract, had an offspring/ward which they brought into this world by delivery, the act by which the res, the subject matter of a trust, or substance thereof was placed within the actual or constructive possession or control of another in the delivery room of the maternity ward of the hospital, the port of entry for vessels/wards.
Then they asked your mother for your legal name in Upper Lower case which consists of one Christian name and one surname which is the name on the RECORD OF LIVE BIRTH written in upper and lowercase letters. What your mother was not told is that she delivered you to an agent/licensed doctor of the State, in a federally funded hospital, an act by which the res, the subject matter of a trust or substance thereof, was placed within the actual or constructive possession or control of another, the State, for which in equity they created a Certificate of Live Birth with the all CAPITAL LETTERS and recorded that warehouse receipt in the commercial registry as cargo under transportation.
The hospital documented your birth with the legal name Title in a distinctive style or appellation, Upper Lower case, the name by which anything is known, and because under trust law whenever title or money is transferred, a trust is created by operation of law, representing you, for which they created a CERTIFICATE OF LIVE BIRTH in all CAPITAL LETTERS, which was filed with the local Registrar and registered with the State, via Certificate of registry, in commercial maritime law which is a certificate of registration of a vessel according to the registry acts, for the purpose of giving him/her a national character i.e. U.S. citizen born in a federal zone, hospital zip code, in the judicial district in which the birthing of the vessel occurred identified by the filing with, for example the "Florida State Department of Health", Office of Vital Statistics within 5 days after your delivery, and then sent to Washington, D.C., for which the hospital receives a check for that vessel.
Then the local registrar issued your parents a copy of the warehouse receipt for the cargo, the CERTIFICATE OF BIRTH from the State of Florida in all CAPITAL LETTERS, representing a vessel/ward of the State representing the abandonment of your title by registration. The State of Florida the Creator/Trustor then created a Cestui que trust (constructive trust) behind your back after the fact, and placed a value on it, based on actuarial estimates of your future labor/human resource. Then they issued a Bond against the trust’s asset, a certificate of indebtedness and funded the bond through the IMF based on your future earnings from your labor as the contributing beneficiary, which is a trust asset, and set up a Federal Reserve account for the same.
If you have an older-style Birth Certificate, look on the Reverse side of it, to see 3 points of interest.
1) A 6-10 digit Number that you have never used in your life.
2) The words "Revenue Receipt" on the left side of this number.
3) The words "For Treasury Purposes Only" on the right side of the number.
So now the IMF has a beneficial interest in and out of the trust estate, the legal title is now vested with the "State of Florida", and held by the Alien Property Custodian in Washington, D.C.; equitable title copy of CERTIFICATE OF BIRTH held by you representing equity/labor; the Governor acting as the managing fiduciary trustee; the Secretary of State Registrar acting as fiduciary trustee until you turn of legal age; and you acting as fiduciary trustee for the trust with duties and obligations once you turn of legal age, and the Secretary of Treasury in charge of the Federal Reserve account.
That ward/vessel is a now a Vessel of the United States, documented by registration under the laws of the United States and subject to its laws and jurisdiction, and the Title goes to the Alien Property Custodian in Washington, D.C. In a maritime in rem action, jurisdiction over the person of the "defendant", the vessel, is premised upon the presence of the vessel within the district in which the court sits. The only vessel they have jurisdiction over is the trust, that is evidenced by the CERTIFICATE OF LIVE BIRTH, establishing the three points of jurisdiction NAME, SOCIAL SECURITY NUMBER and DATE OF BIRTH, the Federal Reserve account under the supervision of the Secretary of the Treasury who is also the managing trustee for the Social Security Administration and governor for the IMF.
Up until you turned of legal age to work, the deputy Registrar on behalf of the Registrar/Secretary of State, or the Registrar/Secretary of State whichever signed the CERTIFICATE OF LIVE BIRTH has been the fiduciary trustee for that trust created behind your back and securitized where the government owns it in part and you own it in part. Meaning the Registrar had the fiduciary duty and obligation for that Trust up until you started your first job. That is why the State can take the child away from the parents, because it is the duty and obligation of the fiduciary trustee as guardian, to look after the ward, and make sure he or she is taken care of properly.
This first Legal Person attached to you, is known as a "NATIONAL CITIZEN" which later becomes synonymous with being a "Government Employee", when you SUBMIT (give in) an APPLICATION (to beg) for REGISTRATION (to sign over your rights) to become a SINner, (by signing up for the Fraud called Social Insurance or Social Security).
You then receive your Employee ID # (also known as a SIN #) which creates another Person called a "TAXPAYER". This means you consent to the Income Tax Act, and now makes you liable for the Income Tax, in exchange for the "Benefits" of being a Government Employee.
When you filled out the Application Form SS-5 for a Social Security Card, the Registrar turned over the duty and obligation of the fiduciary trustee over to you, because he did not want to be responsible as fiduciary for anything you do in commerce using that SS Card/number. You then became the contributing beneficiary and fiduciary trustee for that trust with the duties and obligations for filing and paying the licensing taxes, registration taxes, and taxes on profits, gains and income generated for the trust once it starts to operate in commerce with a Social Security Card/number on all commercial transactions, because you on behalf of the beneficial owner "the trust”, which is resident within a territory occupied by military forces with which the United States is at war, or a resident outside the United States, for which you are considered an enemy doing business with a license and tax identifying number for the purposes "of trade” effectively connected with the conduct of a trade or business within said territory for which you are granted a license under the authority of the President pursuant to the Trading with the Enemy Act, as an enemy in order to trade, or attempt to trade with the enemy for the beneficial owner the "trust”, and as the fiduciary trustee paying, satisfying, compromising, or giving security for the payment or satisfaction of any debt or obligation, and for drawing, accepting, paying, presenting for acceptance or payment, or indorsing any negotiable instrument or chose in action on behalf of the trust.
"A corporation is a citizen, resident, or inhabitant of the state or country by or under the laws of which it was created, and that of state of country only." [19 Corpus Juris Secundumn (C.J.S), Corporations 886]
So how does someone become a "person" and subject to regulation by state statutes and laws ?
There is only one way. You must ask the state for permission to volunteer to become a state person. You must volunteer because the U.S. Constitution forbids the state from compelling you into slavery. This is found in the 13th and 14th Amendments.
13th Amendment Section 1. Neither slavery nor involuntary servitude, except as a punishment for crime, whereof the party shall have been duly convicted, shall exist within the United States, or any place subject to their jurisdiction.14th Amendment Section 1. 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 law, nor deny any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.
The 14th Amendment created "citizenship" for artificial entities called "persons", i.e corporate government fictions and franchisees. With subtle treachery, the 14th Amendment states: "All persons born or naturalized in the United States..." A real human being cannot be "born or naturalized" in a fiction. Only artificial entities - "persons" - can be "born or naturalized" in an abstraction such as the "United States". People proclaiming themselves "persons" are compelled to perform to whatever rules are attached to the term. One who says: "I am a citizen of the United States" is legally stating: "I am not a real, living, sentient being, but an imaginary creation of the minds of other men who are fully entitled to tax, regulate, control, and destroy me through my identification with a fiction that is their creation and property." Citizenship of the UNITED STATES, which is a corporation (thus making you an employee) is an entirely different subject.
"Many of the modern civilians have narrowed the Import of the term 'person' as meaning physical or natural person. They define a person thus: 'homoe, cure statu sue censlderatus;, a human being, invested with the condition of status., And, In this definition, they use the term status in a restricted sense, as including only those conditions which comprise rights and as excluded conditions which are purely onerous and burthensome, or which consist of duties merely. According to this definition, human beings who have no rights are not persons, but things, being classified with other things which have no rights residing in themselves, but are merely the subjects of rights residing in others. Such, in the Roman law, down to the age of the Antonles, was the position of a slave." Professor John Austin, Austins Jur., Vol 1, 358.
You become a state created statutory "person" by taking up residency with the state and stepping into the office of "person." You must hold an "office" within the state government in order for that state government to regulate and control you. First comes the legislatively created office, then comes their control. If you do not have an office in state government, the legislature's control over you would also be prohibited by the Declaration of Rights section, usually found to be either Section I or II, of the State Constitution.
The most common office held in a state is therefore the office known as "person." ("taxpayer" "resident" "U.S Citizen" etc) Your state legislature created this office as a way to control people. It is an office most people occupy without even knowing that they are doing so. The legislature cannot lawfully control you because you are a flesh and blood human being.
God alone created you and by Right of creation, He alone can control you. It is the nature of law, that what one creates, one controls. This natural law is the force that binds a creature to its creator. God created us and we are, therefore, subject to His laws, whether or not we acknowledge Him as our Creator.
The way the state gets around God's law and thereby controls the people is by creating only an office, and not a real human. (The Strawman). This office is titled as "person" and then the legislature claims that you are filling that office. Legislators erroneously now think that they can make laws that also control men. They create entire bodies of laws - motor vehicle code, building code, compulsory education laws, and so on. They still cannot control men or women, but they can now control the office they created. And look who is sitting in that office -- YOU.
Then they create government departments to administer regulations to these offices. ("driver', "taxpayer" etc). With in these administrative departments of state government are hundreds of other state created offices. They have created the office of "person." The state creates many other offices such as police officer, prosecutor, judge etc. and everyone understands this concept. However, what most people fail to recognize and understand is the most common state office of all, the office of "person." Anyone filling one of these state offices is subject to regulation by their creator, the state legislature. Through the state created office of "person," the state gains its authority (jurisdiction) to regulate, control and judge you, the real human. What they have done is apply the natural law principle, "what one creates, one controls. "A look in Webster's dictionary reveals the origin of the word "person." It literally means "the mask an actor wears."
The legislature creates the office of "person" which is a mask. They cannot create real people, but they can create the "office" of "person," which is merely a mask, and then they persuade a flesh and blood human being to put on that mask by offering a fictitious privilege, such as a drivers license. Now the legislature has gained complete control over both the mask and the actor behind the mask. A resident is another state office holder.
The reason all state residents hold an office is so the state can control everything. It wants to create every single office so that all areas of your life are under the complete control of the state. Each office has prescribed duties and responsibilities and all these offices are regulated and governed by the state. If you read the fine print when you apply for a state license or privilege you will see that you must sign a declaration that you are in fact a "resident" of that state.
"Person" is a subset of resident. Judge is a subset of resident. Legislator and police officer are subsets of resident. If you hold any office in the state, you are a resident and subject to all legislative decrees in the form of statutes.
They will always say that we are free men. But they will never tell you that the legislatively created offices that you are occupying are not free. They will say, "All men are free," because that is a true statement.
What they do not say is, that holding any state office binds free men into slavery for the state. They are ever ready to trick you into accepting the state office of "person," and once you are filling that office, you cease to be free men. You become regulated creatures, called persons, totally created by the legislature. You will hear "free men" mentioned all the time, but you will never hear about "free persons."
Why aren't Sovereigns subject to the state's charges? Because of the concept of office. The state is attempting to prosecute only a particular office known as "person." If you are not in that state created office of "person," the state statutes simply do not apply to you. This is common sense, for example, if you are not in the state of Texas, then Texas laws do not apply to you. For the state to control someone, they have to first create the office. Then they must coerce a warm-blooded creature to come fill that office. They want you to fill that office.
Here is the often expressed understanding from the United States Supreme Court, that "in common usage, the term "person" does not include the Sovereign, statutes employing the person are ordinarily construed to exclude the Sovereign." Wilson v. Omaha Tribe, 442 U.S. 653, 667 (1979) (quoting United States v. Cooper Corp., 312 U.S. 600, 604 (1941)). See also United States v. Mine Workers, 330 U.S. 258, 275 (1947).
The Strawman/Legal Person is thus the Evidence of your Signature (an oath) and Consent to Obey a set of Acts or Statutes, usually located on paper contract, or in a card form with your signature. For example. You sign for a "Drivers License" to create a Legal Person called a "DRIVER", and have consented to follow the Traffic Safety/Motor Vehicle Acts of your state or province. You sign up for a "Bank Account" to create a Legal Person called an "ACCOUNT HOLDER", usually providing your SIN/SSN # as part of your "Identification" which consents to allowing access to your bank account by court order to pay your Income Taxes by force! You sign up for "Voter Registration" to create Legal Person called a "VOTER", which gets to vote for new Employee's and Presidents/Prime Ministers for the Corporation your PERSON resides in, and thus consent to the actions of your representative and their party, even if it means going to war against an innocent foreign country, or proroguing their own Parliament illegally! There are literally dozens, if not hundreds of different PERSONS you can be holding, but none of them are YOU.
PERSONS must RESIDE within another Legal Entity, they cannot "Live" anywhere - that is why you are asked if you are a Resident of CANADA or the UNITED STATES. Authorities are not asking you, the Living Man or Woman if you Live in the Country, they are asking if your Legal Person RESIDES (has the right to do business/work) within their Corporation. We have to know what words mean when people claiming authority try to use Legal words to control us. Legal dictionaries are different than regular dictionaries, because Legal words carry Weight in Law, and are often defined completely differently within various Acts, Statutes and Legal dictionaries. It is literally another language, which is why they call it Legalese.
Definition of STRAMINEUS HOMO
L. Lat. A man of straw, one of no substance, put forward as bail or surety.
It all starts with your Birth Certificate. That is when the theft took place by the Bankers. The government decided to enslave us, as collateral for the bankers, with the birth certificate. As soon as you are born, the birth certificate is altered. What they did with your name, was change the Upper case, lower case spelling of the name, which is the human being, into an ALL-CAPITAL letter name. The capitalized version, or STRAWMAN, became the slave. It became the collateral to pay for the interest to the bankers.
(Incidentally, before the 1900's, people USED to write the evidence of a birth in their Family Bible.)
The government made us believe that the Capitlized aritificial name is in fact us, when it is not us. It is a CORPORATE entity. They need this version to work with, and it is a total deception, to the highest degree. The theft of your name begins at birth, and is carried throughout your entire life. You are a tax slave from birth til death. Just look at the Birth Certificate, passport, citizen card (social security card), or the driver's license, you will see on there that it is not your property and belongs to the government. Any time you recieve a bill it will be addressed to the ALL CAPITAL letter name.
Capitonym: A capitonym is a word that changes its meaning (and sometimes pronunciation) when it is capitalized, and usually applies to capitalization due to proper nouns or eponyms.
Proper Noun: A proper noun or proper name is a noun representing a unique entity. As distinguished from a common noun. In English and most other languages that use Latin-derived alphabets (Latin script), proper nouns are usually capitalized. The name may also be referred to as a CODE NAME or Military name: A code name or cryptonym is a word or name used clandestinely to refer to another name or word. Code names are often used for military purposes, or in espionage. They may also be used in industry to protect secret projects.
You can thus conclude that the CAPITLIZED version of your name refers to the CORPORATE ENTITY.
