This post is from Judge Anna –
It is apparent that a lot of people are confused about the name change issue.
All you are doing is a perfectly routine adult name change. Nothing fancy. Nothing hard. No arcane procedures. No Voo-Doo. Nothing. Just a plain old name change in state magistrate level court.
You are changing the “style” of your name from all capital letters like this: JOHN MICHAEL DOE to upper and lower case form like this: John Michael Doe.
Why are you doing this? The only explanation to the court is that you want your name to be expressed in its grammatically correct form. JOHN MICHAEL DOE is not a proper name in English. Period.
There isn’t a judge on the planet competent to argue otherwise.
In fact, if he or she attempts to argue it, you pull out your sturdy copy of The Chicago Manual of Style, 16th Edition, turn to Foreign Languages, Section 11:1147 and the description of Glossa and American Sign Language. Put that under their nose and tell them to take a deep sniff of the corruption.
So — what are you doing besides choosing to use proper grammar?
You are taking the first step to reverse a fraud that is now 75 years in the making.
Your name styled in upper and lower case like this: John Michael Doe —- is your Trade Name. Your parents chose your first and second name and gave it to you as a gift and the surname (last name) you inherited from your family. It is your property and you are its Holder in Due Course on the land jurisdiction of the United States.
However, back in 1933, Franklin Delano Roosevelt and his Administration committed fraud and treason against you and your government and pulled off the biggest con job ever. Roosevelt was “President” of a bankrupt corporation operating as the United States of America, Inc. The Governors operating under him were operating “state franchises” of this same corporation—- the State of Ohio, Inc., the State of Michigan, Inc. and so on.
So FDR went to his franchisees and together they hatched a plan. They would simply and secretively redefine your honest Trade Name as the identically styled name of a Foreign Situs Trust.
Foreign Situs Trusts are named using the same conventions as your Trade Name. Just looking at them without other reference, the Trade Name “John Michael Doe” looks the same as the Foreign Situs Trust name “John Michael Doe”.
So Roosevelt and his cronies created millions of Foreign Situs Trusts named after living Americans and claimed that those Foreign Situs Trusts were all “franchises” of the bankrupt parent corporation standing as “sureties” for its debts.
In this way a deliberate confusion was created—a Grand Con based on deceptively and identically similar names.
Your good Trade Name on the land jurisdiction appeared to be the name of a Foreign Situs Trust operating instead in the international jurisdiction of the sea. Under this false pretense your Name and Estate were pulled into the bankruptcy of the United States of America, Inc. as a presumed surety and franchise of this bankrupt parent corporation.
Once that bankruptcy was over, your Trade Name was still confused with the name of their “discharged” Foreign Situs Trust and still left drifting around in the foreign international jurisdiction of the sea—-though no longer subject to any clams from creditors.
So? What do you need to do? You need to beat feet for your home port and re-flag the Ship of State.
Changing your name from the ACCOUNT to the Proper English signals the fact that you are alive. Accepting, Acknowledging, and Re-Conveying it as your Trade Name to the land jurisdiction precludes any idea that your estate or your state of the Union is “abandoned property”.
Get going and do it now. As soon as you have your name change decree, draft your “Deed of Acknowledgement, Acceptance, and Re-conveyance Without Consideration” and record it with the local Land Recorder’s Office.
It’s no big deal. Simply a statement such as— “Today, (the effective date of the name change decree) I have received back my Trade Name and I do acknowledge, accept, and re-convey it to Lawful Jurisdiction on the land and soil of its birth and return it to its native domicile known as the (wisconsin, ohio, texas, etc.) state and do place this Deed upon the Public Record in token of my action.”
Sign, date, record.
Then take a certified copy of this recorded Deed and make a simple “Notice of Deed” as a cover sheet and return it back to the Court.
Again, it’s just a one-liner: I, John Michael Doe, have acknowledged and accepted and re-conveyed my Trade Name as shown by the certified copy of the enclosed recorded Deed returned to the case file.
Have the Clerk sign a copy of the Notice, date stamped, received. Take that and record it as an “Extension” to the Deed of Acknowledgement, Acceptance, and Re-Conveyance Without Consideration.
You now have your own name back under your control on the land jurisdiction and nobody can say otherwise.
One of the Red Flags we encountered was that nobody had to show any ID in order to change their name. No Birth Certificates. No DLs. No Passports. Nothing. You could, apparently, adopt anyone’s name. I could have claimed to be Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis and I don’t think that judge would have cared.
The same is true of the ACCOUNT sign-language NAME. When we checked Doing Business Names none of our ACCOUNTS were claimed, either. So, having returned our Trade Name officially to our possession and to our lawful jurisdiction after decades of abuse, the next job is to seize control of the ACCOUNT NAMES.
Sooner or later, with enough complaints and enough awareness, this will have to be done en masse via political action instead of individual court and recording processes. Until then, the surreptitious fraud and pillaging and mischaracterization and false claims of “abandonment” continue. You now have a pathway pioneered and cleared for you to reclaim your natural estate and to return your identity to your own control and to your natural jurisdiction on the land.
Don’t wait. Do it now. It isn’t difficult. It costs between $100 and $150 in most states. Recording fees might be another $150. But once it’s done, you have your Good Name back in your control and you are standing on the land and nobody can say otherwise.
This is the foundation needed to reclaim the ACCOUNTS and all else that is yours— your claim to be the General Executor of your own Estate.
