My Comment on the T-ROH Warrant
Okay, first of all, let’s make sure that everyone knows what a warrant and a court are. Then we will look at T-ROH’s jurisdiction or lack thereof with respect to me and others named by these madmen.
warrant. 1) n. an order (writ) of a court which directs a law enforcement officer (usually a sheriff) to arrest and bring a person before the judge, such as a person who is charged with a crime, convicted of a crime but failed to appear for sentencing, owes a fine or is in contempt of court.
Legal Definition of “court”:
Court: n. A court is a tribunal, often as a government institution, with the authority to adjudicate legal disputes between parties and carry out the administration of justice in civil, criminal, and administrative matters in accordance with the rule of law. … The place where a court sits is known as a venue.
Lawful Definition of “court”:
Court: n. any tribunal within a judicial system. Under English common law and in some states it was a court which heard only lawsuits in which damages were sought, as distinguished from a court of equity which could grant special remedies.
Quote my friend, Mark Emery, Founder of The Lighthouse Law Club:
Learn about ‘lawful’ courts and how to hold your own court. Court is not a ‘place’ it’s an assembly of qualified jurors convened in any location by the plaintiff and the defendant under the security of the Sheriff. https://vimeo.com/248990751
In fact and in truth, a court is the assemblage of people creating the court. It is not a building or place (that’s merely the venue). And as you can see above, a court may be engaged in settling “legal” disputes or “lawful” disputes.
As a result, a warrant may be a “writ” issued by a lawful court, or it may be an “order” issued by a legal court.
And in any case, in order for a warrant to have any validity, the “person” – either the Natural Person addressed by a lawful court, or the legal fiction PERSON addressed by a legal court—has to be in the jurisdiction of that court.
As I do not subscribe to T-ROH and am not a citizen of T-ROH and long ago severed any association with T-ROH whatsoever (I checked out their spiel along with RuSA and all the other wannabe organizations and found them wanting for the reasons already discussed.) nothing that they say or do has any jurisdiction related to me.
In fact, their “warrant” has as much authority as a similar “warrant” issued by the Ladies’ Sewing Circle and Terrorist Society of Columbus, Ohio. The Campus Police at Georgia State have more actual authority than T-ROH.
So am I worried? Of course, I am worried. These people are nutcases, dangerously unbalanced and irrational and out ramming around South America, presumably acting as a nutcase magnet for similarly inclined persons. That is something to worry about for sure and has been reported to Homeland Security.
All that said —
This recent fashion for private organizations issuing “Warrants” for “Arrest” of other people was started by Kevin Annett and his International Tribunal for Crimes of Church and State, which as usual, Copycat Livingway has adopted as something he thinks he can do, too.
If anyone acts on such “Warrants” and kidnaps people who belong to other countries and other jurisdictions of the law, they are likely to: (a) be fired upon and (b) be prosecuted as criminals.
We have extradition treaties with some other countries that allow for prisoner exchanges and settlement of criminal charges in foreign jurisdictions, but not with T-ROH, which with any luck will simply fade away as another ill-conceived foreign organization built on sand.
