This page will be for various future blog entries about CAFR’s and the intent and motive of government.
Thank you so much for your series Waking Up: To The Corporation Nation! I stayed up till 1:45 to watch it in its entirety.
I’ve been a follower and supporter of Walter Burien for over a year now, and have spread his word. I’ve already emailed friends and colleagues about your series. The word must get out. Concerning that, my brother Dan Hanley is an internationally recognized whistleblower in the airline industry. He and Walter discussed issues of mutual concern by phone several months ago. Fleur de Lis Film Studios is about to launch a TV series called “Whistleblowers: The Untold Story”: see http://www.airline-whistleblowers.org/New_Standard_2.html. I suggested Dan contact the producers of that series to include Walter’s story, but he said he was up to his butt in his own concerns (per the following). What about you contacting them? H-m-m-m, as I clicked on Fleur de Lis’ URL link on the above webpage to post here, I was sent to a page that says “Forbidden: You don’t have permission to access / on this server.” How interesting!
In any event, if you wish to speak with Dan I can put you in contact with him. His neck is way out on the line. He just did the following a few days ago:
November 20, 2010 Letter to Departments of
Transportation and Justice – Manslaughter?
I write to your good offices today regarding grave matters concerning suppression of airline employee whistleblowers, which I herein accuse the guilty parties of alleged manslaughter of passengers and aircrew members as a result of said activity. I have evidence and witnesses who will support these serious allegations involving commercial airline senior-level managers, government officials of the Department of Transportation, and certain members of the Air Line Pilots Association, the union representing over 50,000 airline pilots on the North American continent.
The scam in all its tentacles has gotten too big to go unexposed. I feel certain that the vampire with its fangs in our veins is about to see the light of the rising sun.
All the best,

Excellent job on The Corporation Nation movie. I just stumbled on it last night and watched it. You are one of the voices of the people that we need to get our country back. I thank you so much for all your work to put this out to the masses. I have a little blog that I started a few days ago, and I just posted the website for others to go see it. With your permission, I’d like to add your name to the growing list of brave souls who dares to tell people the truth. Please stop by and share with us sometime at http://leakbabyleak.wordpress.com/
The OneDollarDVDProject now carries this fine video on a DVD for a dollar or two.
We’d like to link you on our site.
I just finished watching the 20 videos. Thank you so much. It clearly explains the situation. I am sending links to everyone I know. People need to wake up!
Great video! I thought I was very knowledgable but you have opened my eyes farther than I thought it could ever be opened? This is truly earth shattering stuff. Unfortunately it has also made me seriously reflect on whether I have been going down the wrong path with my pro-constitution agendas, Ron Paul and even Alex Jones. Your last segment regarding the CAFR from the Federal Reserve was truly eye opening. You have my promise to get this out to as many people as I can convince to watch it. I think for this to go truly viral you will need to come up with a shorter version that somehow condenses the first two hours into 30 minutes but keep the entire segment on the Federal Reserve? When will your second edition be available for viewing?

Could you please comment on this article I ran across today while searching for the definition of “Federal Corporation”
For an entity to become a corporation under federal law,
there must be an Act of Congress creating that corporation.
There are no Acts of Congress expressly incorporating
either the “United States” or the “United States of America”…. (continued)

I have had dealings with this gentleman before, and have kept his sights up because I think he has good information. The long article can be read elsewhere, so as to not clog up these comments.
My response would be this: We can argue semantics all day, but then we would never get anywhere or solve anything. The reality of the situation is that my municipality is a corporation, and has the name corporation in its title. It is listed as a private company on corporate sights. What more do I need to say?
As for the Federal Government, is was actually incorporated in 1801, and the Act of 1871 just made the three districts of Washington D.C. into one district. Washington D.C is not one of the 50 United States. It is its own country (incorporated) just as the City of London and the Vatican are not part of England and Italy proper.
Bottom line… government as an incorporated entity is much worse than any other form of corporation. Why? Because government makes the laws and rules under which government operates. There is no governing body for government. The king does not pass laws that would hurt its kingdom. They can pass their own laws and then operate completely outside of those laws, while we the people must fight the government within its laws.
So ponder this all you want, or get over this distraction and do something about it. I hope you will choose the latter choice. Act locally, not Federally.
Here are a couple of blog entries I wrote on this subject, for more clarification… They are referenced so that you can do your own research.
Remember, the CAFR is the issue here, and this government wealth and its obfuscation from the people should never be trumped by semantic arguments about things that we have no power to change. Take back your local venues, and work up to the state level. Federal Government has no power except by consent.
I am not trying to sound repetative but I would hope you please bear with me and answer some additional questions I have regarding this subject from your perspective.
1. “As for the Federal Government, is was actually incorporated in 1801, and the Act of 1871 just made the three districts of Washington D.C. into one district. ”
Was this done by an act of Congress? I cannot seem to find anything from 1801. Could you please point me to your source?
2. Is there any difference in “Government or Federal Corporation” versus private corporations? What would be an acceptable solution if by some magic we could eliminate these corporations? Obviously there has to be some sort of organization that could handle national, state and municiple management.
3. It seems to me that the real issue here is as you say, “the lack of accountability” and the dishonesty of the current leadership in these institutions.
Unfortunately I cannot seem to get over this sense of hopelessness and utter lack of caring that most Americans display nowadays. To make things even worse you do not know who to trust for honest assements of what needs to be taken care of. The current ruling class has done a wonderful job of spreading misinformation to the point where it takes a full time job to research all the current sources of information on the internet and the mainstream media.
A perfect example is this very website. I thought I had it figured out and now that I have encountered your site and I am almost back to square one becuse you have presented some compelling information regarding sources I had thought were reliable…
1) see my blog about the 1801 incorporation here: http://realitybloger.wordpress.com/2010/12/18/the-united-states-a-corporation/
2) Government should idealistically be representatives of the people, not corporate officers engaged in business activities. Private (like Fortune 500) corporations are only viable if they are making a profit for their shareholders. A government has no shareholders per say, but is incorporated just the same. This information was just forwarded to me from Walter Burien, and is perfect to answer this question:
“The legal status of municipal corporations was first settled by the U.S. Supreme Court, in the 1819 decision Board of Trustees of Dartmouth College v. Woodward. Here the Court “invented a legal distinction between corporations chartered by states. Ruling that a charter granted to private citizens for personal interests is not a conveyance of privilege from the sovereign (which now meant the People and not the king) to the incorporators, but rather a contract between the state and the incorporators, the Court argued that the state could not change, limit or revoke the charter once issued. To do so would be to violate the Contracts Clause (Article 1, Section 10) of the U.S. Constitution, John Marshall’s court argued . . . Henceforth, private business corporations would have an increasing share in American sovereignty. Business corporations gained legal independence from state legislatures as a result of the Dartmouth College case. But this ruling played-out quite differently in terms of public corporations, like municipalities . . . Municipal corporations have no incorporators other than the legislature itself, claimed the court. Neither the people living within the jurisdiction of the municipality, nor the local governing officials were recognized as the legal recipients of a charter from the state. In fact, residents living within a municipal jurisdiction were deemed to be mere “tenants” of the municipality. Therefore, although the state legislature could not presume to govern the actions and behavior of a business corporation, once chartered, the state could unilaterally change municipal boundaries, revoke or impose local laws, or even dissolve the municipality unilaterally, according to this long-standing theory of corporate law. It is supported by precedent that has little opportunity to gather dust as it is regularly pulled from the shelves by corporate attorneys and state judges who argue for the sanctity of a legal tradition that denies the fundamental right of people to govern themselves in the places where they live.”

Walter’s Tax Retirement Team would be set up to ensure accountability in government, by the law voted on by the people (real law, not corporate legality).
3) Accountability can only be obtained through complete transparency, the most important goal we can strive for. Only then can the trail of money and corruption be followed, and justice served. I understand your feeling of dread, and yet we must have empathy for dumbed down America, as we all start out in the same place. You must wake them up, using all of the materials at your disposal, including this documentary. It is unique in that the majority of it is taken right from government documents (cafr’s), taking the guess work out of the equation. You can pull up these reports for yourself online, of go directly to your local government office and demand a copy for yourself. It is law that they must be given out. There is way too much dis-info out there, and I pride myself on not being part of that deception.
My goal is to de-program people from the “patriot movement” which I believe is 80% cointelpro, controlled opposition. And the biggest hurdle to waking people up is to de-program them from the mythological belief in the constitution. It has no authority, it is not contractual, you cannot use it in court to defend yourself, it is the basis of eminent domain, and it has countless flaws that people just don’t want to acknowledge. Not to mention the “founding father’s” who were “anti-federalist” wrote in their personal journals how much they despised the document and how they were all but forced to concede to a federal government.
Believe your eyes… the CAFR is the most important document in government.

I read his work with great interest but then when I followed up with furthur research I found a lot of research that makes his credentials very suspect. He is however a superb legal writer. I also looked into many of the references he quotes in his various publications and they do seem to check out. Unfortunately since he is definately not a lawyer his research tends to get debunked by others with official titles. This gets back to my earlier comments regarding not knowing which sources to trust anymore. Everytime you think you have found someone with credible research there is someone else out there debunking it.
Have you read any of the work by Edwin Vieira? He is definately a person with impeccable credentials, but I think you have expressed some doubt whether the US Constitution is all that it’s cracked up to be? It is very obvious that our current representatives in government certainly don’t seem to respect it one bit!
I highly respect Mr Viera.
Mr. Mitchell I believe has the best of intentions, but has a stubborn streak that is incurable, and a proudness that makes it difficult to change thought processes once a belief is reached. The semantics of this argument do not matter, again, because the government corporation is the one making the very laws that govern itself. What more do we need to know than that?
WELL DONE CLINT!

It would be great if you could put together a review of the Wisconsin situation that activists there could use in their current struggle. I’m sure that you know that the governor there is requiring workers to make up a deficit that he himself created through a tax cut… Though based on your work that isn’t entirely relevant.
Thanks for your work,
I am doing just that. Hope to have a short video out soon.
What do you think of Ellen Brown’s explanations on why the CAFR monies can’t be used?
“Taking Back the Money Power: How Hidden Pools of Government Money Could Help Save the Economy”
They seem kind of weak to me, but I’d love to hear your take on what she says.
Warm regards and much gratitude,
There are several answers here, but lets focus on the most important (in my opinion).
Who’s money is it? Is it the taxpaying public’s money, or is it the government’s money? Is there a difference between the two?
This is a private corporation acting as a government, that is not representing the will or need of the people.
Transfers out of these funds happen all of the time. And a CODE is not statutory law, but presumed law. This means that it requires the consent of the governed.
Therefore, as long as we the governed stay silent and don’t demand that the state release our money, we are consenting to this hoarding of our money by what we laughably call our representative government!
More on consent here: http://realitybloger.wordpress.com/2010/12/08/consent-why-the-irs-domestic-and-homeland-security-have-no-lawful-power/
And here is Walter Burien’s response to Ellen Brown and her love of the idea of state banks…
Fact: if the people want the law on their side, they must create new laws that will be on their side. This is done by people creating initiatives and propositions and then having the whole state vote on it, not by calling, emailing, and facebooking your so-called representative congressmen, who are EMPLOYEES OF THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT.
People are the power, if they’d just get off of their collective arses!
To add my two cents to what Walter is so astutely stating in his response, let me just say this:
If, as the money power government, if I wanted to end the Federal Reserve in order to take my financial rape and takeover of America and the World to the next level… I would get the people to rally behind my controlled opposition (Ron Paul, Alex Jones, End The Fed, etc…) and do the work for me. I would put all of the blame on the Fed and slip out the back door with all of my wealth while the people celebrate their false victory over the evil Federal Reserve Banking system, the central bank. But in reality, the people have just been looted and robbed in a way that they can’t even come close to comprehending, and the money changers change in name only. Now I, as the international money changer government, I can bring in the the new world banking system established through the U.N. and the IMF, using a congruent collaboration of all international currencies (special drawing rights) as the new “dollar”. The “New World Order” that Walter refers to would now be in place more so than ever before.
Understanding that the dollar is backed by the people, not an intrinsic object or metal, means that the dollar is nothing but DEBT. It is evidence of debt. And we trade it amongst ourselves as if it is gold. It is not. It is a paper weapon so powerful that it has purchased the whole corporate structure of the world. And if the dollar becomes (purposefully) worthless and the economy (purposefully) collapses, the government and the money-changer’s that control it will still own everything you see, all corporations, all land, and you the people. The government hedges is dollars like you wouldn’t believe! The CAFR’s show trillions of dollars invested in foreign currency hedge funds controlled by government. If the dollar goes bye-bye, the government is holding mass amounts of wealth in every international currency. It cannot help but to get ahead!!! You and your production value are “chattel”, and are the collateral for the good faith and credit of the United States Government. The dollar even has our Social Security numbers on them! You can find all of this listed in U.S.CODE.
Government is the banks. Whether it be state banks or a central bank, they are still government run.
Not understanding government ownership of these banks is like not understanding addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division before trying to master calculus.
So there it is…
Thanks for your question. And peace to you.
Thank you for your response. I posted it on the CAFR thread at the Gold-Silver.US forum. There is also another stickied thread for your Corporation Nation documentary:
I have had great success in the past years dealing with the fraud that takes place and here in Idaho we have the solution for jurisdiction and how each state can follow our process and challenge all policy, fees and mandates by both the STATE AND FED….. we are looking for more individuals so we can take this across the US and regain our republic form of government. The true enemy of the constitution is POLITICAL CORRECTNESS which the CORPORATE DEMOCRACY “de facto” forces down each individuals right to be free!
