The Law of the Flag: an International Law, which is recognized by every nation of the planet, is defined
as …a rule to the effect that a vessel is a part of the territory of the nation whose flag, she flies. The term
is used to designate the right under which a ship owner, who sends his vessel into a foreign port, gives
notice by his flag to all who enter into contracts with the ship master that he intends the Law of that Flag
to regulate those contracts, and that they must either submit to its operation or not contract with him or his
agent at all." (Ruhstrat v. People, 57 NE 41).
Registration: When you "register" yourself, you "record formally and exactly... in a list or the like," with
a Registrar. A "registrar" is "an officer who has the custody and charge of keeping of a registry or
register." What really is a "registry?" "Generally, a 'registry' applies to vessels in foreign commerce......”
When we register ourselves, we have recreated ourselves as vessels in foreign commerce.
Flag: Everything moving in commerce is a vessel: space ships, satellites, sea-going ships, planes, busses,
automobiles, the mails, persons and believe it or not - contracts. Just as a ship must fly a flag to designate
its nationality/laws of contract, your paperwork needs to display a flag in order to establish who you are
and what law you will use to contract.
Stamp: All vessels charge a freight fee to deliver their cargo. Likewise we must pay a freight fee as the
authority to deliver our cargo, i.e.: the paperwork we send needs to have a stamp on it. The paper is the
vessel, the words are the cargo, the flag designates the law and the stamp shows that we have paid the fee
to deliver our cargo. Place the colored flag in the upper left hand corner as you are looking at the page
(the Bonnie Blue is what I use) and place a dollar stamp in the upper right hand corner. Write your
autograph over the stamp to cancel it thus making you the postmaster. Whatever flag you choose to use,
remember not to use a gold-fringed flag as that is under their jurisdiction and not your common law
Registered: Use registered mail to identify your vessel. This places your document/vessel into
international law and gives it recognition in international commerce. This is another assertion that you are
in fact foreign to the jurisdiction they are trying to place you under. This number now becomes the case
number for any and all paperwork related to the first document sent.
Jolly Roger: If you come upon a flag that is not recognized in international law, it is a pirate flag.
Anything attached to a Title 4 USC 1, 2 Flag (i.e.: gold fringe) mutilates the Flag and under Title 4 USC 3
carries a one-year prison term. The gold fringe is an added color and represents "color of law" when
placed upon the Title 4 USC Flag. The fringe is a mutilation; it suspends the Constitution and establishes
"color of law." The gold-fringed flag that utilizes color of law and portends to be the American flag is
NOT the American flag of peace. It is a pirate flag and it is your warning as to whom/what you are about
to do business with. Army Regulation 260-10 states that the gold fringe may be used only on regimental
"colors," the President's flag, for a military courts martial and for the flags used at military recruiting
Courts: The flag in court is the court's advertisement of the laws governing their contracts. If you do not
wish to contract with these courts, then jurisdiction must be challenged. In order to correctly challenge
jurisdiction you must remember [Girty vs. Logan, 6 Bush KY 8] which states: "It is an elementary rule of
pleading, that a plea to the jurisdiction is a tacit admission that the court has a right to judge in the case
and is a waiver to all exception to the jurisdiction." Which means that if you plea - you have waived your
rights to challenge jurisdiction. And when the judge attempts to enter a plea for you and says that the state
statutes allow him to do so, tell him NO, that he cannot practice law from the bench and that he is not
your attorney and you do not give him permission to act on your behalf! Read the "Courts By Contract"
section in this manual for further information.
