YOU ARE THE
COMMANDER IN CHIEF
by Ed Rivera
Forget Obama, Clinton, Edwards, McClain,
Romney, Huckabee and the others, wouldn’t you like to preside over your own
life? Of course you would, but the
President of the United States is also the Commander in Chief and how can you
compete with the President of the United States that’s also the Commander in
Chief? Their power comes from the
federal Constitution; you, however, are
endowed by the Creator with unalienable Rights. Knowing how the system works makes you
Commander in Chief of your own life.
When this Declaration of Independence is published on the Internet as
your personal web site, you can begin to live your life as a free person.
Today no one will argue with the idea that
the present President of the United States is opposed to individual freedom in
favor of the government over which he
has control. Take drugs, for
example. Several States won’t prosecute
those who use marijuana medicinally.
The President of the United States insists that federal laws
criminalizing medicinal marijuana be applied in States that permit it as a
medicine. There is a clear conflict in
laws here. The people of several States
have decided that certain users of marijuana are not to be prosecuted for drug
use, but the federal government says that use is a violation of federal
law. The freedom of the people is
clearly being infringed. The title of
this report suggests a solution to the problem.
The President of the United States and not the President of the United
States of America is the Commander in Chief of the Army and Navy of the United
States. Yes, there are at least three
Presidents in the Constitution, but the Constitution is limited to federal
territory that has nothing to do with you and your life. You preside over your life and the Presidents
in the Constitution have their duties, which have nothing to do with you.
Where can these Presidents be found? In order of appearance the President of the
United States of America, President and President of the United States are found
in Article II of the Constitution for the United States of America. George Washington was elected President and
publicly took the oath of Office to be President of the United States in
Philadelphia, Pennsylvania on April 30, 1789.
Washington did not take the oath of office mandated by Article VI for all
executive officers of the United States.
There are two Constitutions: “this
Constitution” and the Constitution of the United States. The Constitution referred to in the
Constitution as “this Constitution” is, of course, a written constitution
referred to in the Preamble as “this Constitution for the United States of
America.” The Constitution of the United
States is obviously not this Constitution.
George Washington, as presiding officer over the secret Constitutional
Convention, was fully aware of the difference.
The Constitution was created in secret so the member who created it
thought it would be implemented in a certain way. These members believed that the Constitution
would become, upon ratification, something that its first President would never
want it to be. Washington knew all
during the convention proceedings that he would be unanimously elected to be the
first President. Completion of the
Constitution of the United States would fall to George Washington and
Congress. Washington never permitted the
Office of the President of the United States of America to emerge and he and
Congress refused to ordain and establish a true national court system.
George Washington was Commander in Chief of
the Continental Army during the American Revolution and he continued in that
position after he was elected President under the Constitution for the United
States of America. That Constitution
vests the executive power in a President of the United States of America and the
power over the military in the President of the United States. So few people have actually read the
Constitution that it is not widely known that the President of the United States
of America must take an oath to support that Constitution and the President of
the United States must take an oath to preserve, protect and defend the
Constitution of the United States. It is
historical fact that George Washington set the precedent of taking the one oath
to preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States and
completely ignoring the oath to support the Constitution. There is no record that any President has
ever sworn or affirmed an oath to support the Constitution for the United States
of America. George Washington, as the
first President is responsible today for the corruption that exists in all
George Washington was guilty of the most
heinous conspiracy the one that is never discovered until it has corrupted most
of the world’s governments. This one
qualifies as undiscovered because you are reading about it more than two hundred
years after it was pulled off. It has
remained undetected for so long because it was brilliantly hatched and
flawlessly executed. The Constitution
that everyone thinks is the Constitution is felt unfinished and unused. The country has never had a President of the
United States of America and no real judicial court with a real judge has ever
dispensed real law anywhere in America.
These facts are proven here using the Constitution and the Judiciary Act
of 1789. Sure the country has gotten
this far, but what could have been accomplished without the deceit and trickery
that have been an integral part of government from the ratification of the
Constitution by nine States to the addition of 37.
The United States is a federal government
because it is a Union of States under a central government, which can tax and
legislate for the States that have not be formally admitted into the Union, but
are nonetheless part of the Confederacy.
These States are separate and distinct from the states where the people
of the state are domiciled. The English
common law is the exclusive law in 49 of these 50 states. In Louisiana, French civil law is the
equivalent of English common law. The
written law or statutory law is the law for government. In the 50 States “[t]his Constitution, and
the Laws of the United States which shall be made in Pursuance thereof; and all
Treaties made, or which shall be made, under the Authority of the United States,
shall be the supreme Law of the Land.”
The land referred to in Article VI Clause 2 of the Constitution is the
land subject to the exclusive legislative power of the Congress of the United
States, also known as federal territory.
All that land created a real estate problem
for the Confederacy called the United States of America, because it had no
delegated power in the Articles of Confederation to make all the laws, rules and
regulations necessary to manage such huge territory. The Northwest Ordinance of 1787 provided a
temporary solution to the land management problem, but there was a general
clamor in and outside federal territory for more laws and more government. A few well-known and well connected
politicians took advantage of the cry for more laws by sponsoring the convention
that ultimately produced the Constitution.
The United States of America is not the
federal government. The United States of
America is a confederacy formed by the Articles of Confederation, which was
created to establish a perpetual Union to defeat the British in war. After the British were beaten and a peace was
made, a new Union was formed of the original thirteen States and the territory
abandoned by the British. Confederate
States are equal to each other, so a Union of equal States creates no authority
to create legislation for the member States to obey.
