Garbage Masquerading As History

   It is not just the 1619 Project.  I received this email:

Did you ever wonder why you need a special privilege to carry a concealed weapon when the 2nd amendment claims to give you  the right?

i posed this question to a retired ATF agent who had something like 30 years of service, he had no answer.

The only explanation i can come up with is the Cestui Que Vie Act concept of King John, 1666, that after London burned down he declared everyone in the British Kingdom to be "lost at sea" and in order to reclaim your land and inheritance one had to come forward and declare that they were found to be "living", competent to handle their own affairs and of majority age.

If you were paying attention in Western Civ, you should remember that King John reigned in the 12th and 13th centuries.  The great barons forced him to sign Magna Carta in 1215.  There is no need to identify him as John I; he was such a disastrous king that no later monarch has even considered John as a regnal name. 

The Cestui Que Vie Act 1666 provided relief for tenants of landowners whose life could not be established and were presumed dead if overseas at least seven years. 

That seems to be a major law change that took place and has carried forward to present day law.

My question to the ATF agent, "why do you need a permit from the government when you have a right granted to the people by the 2nd amendment" may be answered by the general state of affairs that have developed since 1871 where a new civil government was formed, a corporation that relied on the 14th amendment (said by some to have not been properly ratified)  define a new slave class where all the people of the US were presumed to be US citizens and somehow connected with Washington DC and no longer people of the land and heirs to the Constitution and Bill of Rights. The corporation is bankrupt and "we the people" are security for the debt. Woodrow Wilson signed the Federal Reserve Act in 1913 and we have been slaves to the banking cartel ever since.

i seem to be rambling but just trying to highlight what comes to mind about our national situation and some of that that has lead us to this point of  history. i don't claim to be a scholar. LOL 

Good thing, too. The only place that I can find this Cestui Que Vie Act nonsense is on Facebook, which seems to have replaced ardent but wrong conspiracy theory pamphlets of the 1960s. 


  1. And in 1666, there was no "British Kingdom". England and Scotland were separate countries, with their own parliaments, armies, and laws until the Act of Union in 1707.

    One great danger today is that as "established" embraces nonsense like "1619", its general credibility is destroyed, opening the door to garbage like this.

    Another is that the assimilation of the entire intellectual class by the left means there is no scholarly leadership on the right. This vacuum gets filled by cranks, fools, and frauds.

  2. Speaking of the ATF, I hate to focus on a person's appearance, but Chipman looks like a parodist's drawing of a Concentration Camp Guard.

  3. And in other news, the gold fringe on the flags in the various courthouses in the United States is a sign and symbol that they are not legitimate courts of law for Americans who consider themselves to be citizens of one of the many states and not the Federal Government.
    Or something of the sort. There's a lot of handwavium involved in reaching that conclusion. Or there are several places in the flow chart that say, "Here a miracle occurs."

  4. This is boilerplate for Sovereign Citizens. It only gets deeper from here. I heard it all the time when I worked in a city jail.

    I have a (half) joking theory about Sovereigns. The original Sovereign was a schizophrenic fellow in a county lockup somewhere. He was very charismatic and his delusions held enough internal logic to convince several of the "low information voters" near his cell. From there, the Sovereign Citizen went viral in the criminal information network.
