From the March 2002 Idaho Observer:
PETITION FOR REDRESS OF GRIEVANCES
This appeal is directed to the President of the United States of America, the Vice President, the Speaker of the House, the United States Senate and House of Representatives; demanding that our constitutional republic, the United States of America, be restored to its proper, organic, form.
The Constitution for the United States of America is a document that has allowed and protected a freedom greater than ever before has been experienced in the history of mankind. It evolved from the wisdom and inspiration of former ages with a collection of usages more perfect than any human wisdom could at once have framed. It has arisen out of social wants and been adapted to the necessities of actual practice. Being a reflection of knowledge from the time of the Roman Empire to the era of the Mangna Carta in 1215. Many people lost their lives for its creation.
On July 4, 1776, Congress signed the unanimous Declaration of the thirteen united States of America. They declared that whenever any form of government becomes destructive of the ends to the Peoples' unalienable rights of Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness, that it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and that when a Long train of abuses and usurpations pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government.
The first paragraph of the Declaration of independence states, when in the course of human events it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bonds which connected them with another..a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.
This appeal is to address that respect to the opinions of mankind and impels us to declare the causes of our grievances.
The history, not of King George III, but of secret powers and institutions that have seized control of our constitutional republic, the United States of America, a sovereign nation-state, is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute Tyranny, a New World Order, over these States. We are no longer a government of the People, by the People, for the People but are today a government of the elite corporation, by the elite corporation, for the elite corporation.
These secret powers and institutions influence Congress, and legislation, through special interest groups, for their benefit and the design to establish world government, being comprised of the owners of the Federal Reserve System, the International Monetary Fund, the Bank for International Settlements, the United Nations, the Council on Foreign Relations. the Trilateral Commission, the Royal Institute for International Affairs, the Club of Rome, various secret societies and the international banking community.
To prove this, let facts be submitted to a candid world.
On February 21, 1871, the Forty First Congress passed an act, through their influence, entitled An Act to Provide a Government for the District of Columbia, which transferred the United States of America, the Republic, into a corporate entity entitled the UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, in capital letters, having no jurisdiction outside the District of Columbia. This Act was perfected without constitutional authority.
On February 25, 1913, the 16th Amendment to the Constitution was, through their influence, signed into law, which allows Congress power to lay and collect taxes on income. This amendment was fraudulently ratified by less than two thirds vote of the States, violating the Constitution.
On December 23, 1913, the delegated authority of Congress to be responsible for the national currency was, through their influence, illicitly, unconstitutionally and treasonously surrendered to the private Federal Reserve Corporation, whose class A stockholders are various international bankers. Nowhere does the Constitution allow for a private institution to issue our currency and charge interest for it.
They created the depression of the 1930s by intentionally shorting the money supply in the national money markets and forced the UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, the Corporation, into bankruptcy in 1933, placing foreign agents as trustee-creditors of the Corporation.
They influenced the People, and Congress, to adopt the United Nations Charter, a world governing body, without constitutional authority.
They influenced the passage of the North American Free Trade Agreement, allowing unfair trade practices that benefit the elite corporations along with furthering American industrial flight to foreign countries with cheap labor.
They influenced the imposition of federal mandates on every local and state entity in the nation through binding federal funding, nullifying the protection of the 10th Amendment and States rights along with our most fundamental concept of government that allows power to the People.
They influenced the creation of a two-tier accounting structure of all local, state and federal agencies that deliberately conceals from the people excessive amounts of investment funds not shown in annual budget statements, but that are hidden in the Comprehensive Annual Financial Reports.
They have, through their influence and under the pretense of emergency -- which they themselves created -- erected a multitude of new offices to harass our People, and eat out their substance, along with expanded search and seizure laws that further erode our constitutional rights.
They have subjected us to a jurisdiction foreign to our constitution (admiralty rather than common law), taking away our charters, abolishing our most valuable laws, and altering fundamentally the forms of our government, forcing our assent to their acts of pretended legislation.
They have made judges dependent on their will alone, for the tenure of their offices, and the amount and payment of their salaries.
They have deprived us in many cases of the benefits of trial by jury, dictating what law must be considered in trial, or through intimidation and threats of extreme sentences.
They have protected their own, by mock trials, from punishment for wrongs which they should commit on the Inhabitants of these States.
They have established control of every significant news source in America, depriving the People of unbiased and truthful reporting.
They have manipulated the American People to favor the candidate of their choosing through control of the syndicated media.
They have manipulated world markets, allowing themselves unfair advantage over their competitors while enhancing avenues to plunder and/or extort a nation's natural resources.
They have forced the American People, through their influence, to underwrite the financial blunders of politicians and elite corporate interests.
They have influenced the introduction of environmental laws that over-regulate small business enterprises to the point they cannot be competitive with elite corporations.
They have influenced and allowed secret research projects, affecting the physical and mental health of the People across the nation.
They had advance knowledge and allowed the attacks to occur on Pearl Harbor, the ocean liner Lusitania, the Oklahoma City Federal Building, and the World Trade Center.
They have involved America in foreign wars, without a declaration of war, for the protection of elite corporate interests and their profits.
They have financed both sides of every significant war in recent history, advancing the design for world government.
SUMMARY: Through the knowing or unknowing complicity of their Agents (local, state and federal officials) they have completely debauched the monetary system, destroyed the lives and livelihoods of millions of people, aided and abetted the enemies of America and human freedom in general, declared war on the American People and their posterity, incited rebellion and anarchy within the de jure society, taken false oaths, entered into seditious foreign agreements, pacts, confederations, treaties and alliances, and under a pretense of emergency, formed and established a multitude of offices of alien allegiance to perpetuate their plunder, conquest and subjugation of what was once considered the last great hope of human freedom to ultimately establish a New World Order.
By continuing to administer this perfidy, acting for a foreign power, treason is being committed against not only the Constitution, but against truth, rightness and the real Sovereigns of the nation, the People themselves.
