‘Sovereign Citizen’ With History of Bogus Lawsuits Shot Dead by Ohio Deputies
March 28, 2014
An armed, 65-year-old, self-described “sovereign citizen” was fatally shot in the head this week during what’s being described as a gunfight with local sheriff’s deputies in a suburb of Cleveland.
Israel Rondon’s death came after a 5-year legal battle he waged in a fruitless attempt to convince various courts of his belief that government agencies and laws have no control over so-called sovereign citizens – or a freeman, as he liked to call himself.
As numerous other law enforcement encounters with activists in the United States have shown, the seemingly harmless paperwork filings favored by antigovernment sovereigns can escalate into deadly violence very quickly. Seven law enforcement officers have been killed in the United States since 2000 by members of the sovereign citizens movement, which has been deemed a “domestic terrorist” movement by the FBI.
When six deputies went to Rondon’s residence in Middleburg Heights, Ohio, on Tuesday to arrest him for probation violation, “he came after the deputies with a rifle and opened fire,” the Cleveland Plain Dealer reported in Thursday’s editions.
NewsChannel5 reporters noted that every corner of Rondon’s home and its foundation was spray-painted with words and numbers from U.S. code: “Title 18 1581-241 USC”. That particular code – dealing with slavery, peonage, and forced labor – is frequently cited by sovereign citizens, who believe that such citations release them from obligations as citizens of the United States, including paying their taxes or obeying traffic codes.
A preliminary investigation by the Ohio Bureau of Criminal Investigation found that two deputies fired shots, at least one of which struck Rondon in the head, the newspaper reported. No deputies were injured.
Like so many sovereign citizens who believe they don’t need a driver’s license to operate a vehicle, Rondon’s first encounter with the law came during a traffic stop on Sept. 9, 2009, according to the Cleveland newspaper.
During that stop, a deputy found a loaded .38 caliber handgun under the car seat and a large military-style knife attached to Rondon’s belt. He pleaded no contest to resulting weapons charges in summit County Common Pleas Court, and got two years probation.
But then, the newspaper reported, Rondon filed an appeal, claiming Ohio’s concealed handgun law was unconstitutional because it doesn’t contain provisions to waive fees for indigent persons. His appeal was tossed when judges ruled his constitutional challenge of the law came too late, only after he entered his plea.
In November 2011, a warrant for Rondon’s arrest was issued when he failed to show up for a court hearing.
Middleburg Heights Police Lt. Kevin Hoover initially wasn’t aware of that warrant on Feb. 8, 2012, when he encountered Rondon while responding to a report that people were illegally shooting deer. When the police officer later went to Rondon's home to arrest him on the warrant, Rondon resisted, striking Hoover, the newspaper reported.
Rondon subsequently was charged with assaulting a police officer and carrying concealed weapons in Cuyahoga County Common Pleas Court, court records show.
Acting as his own attorney, he was sentenced to two years of probation after pleading no contest to those charges in September 2012.
In April 2013, when Rondon was cited in Berea Municipal Court with misdemeanor zoning and building code violations, he responded, as sovereign citizens frequently do, with lengthy handwritten motions questioning the court's jurisdiction.
While those cases were unfolding, Rondon filed eight lawsuits in U.S. District Court seeking millions in damages from various government officials, agencies and banks. Those kinds of filings have come to be known as “paper terrorism,” an antigovernment tactic that has clogged many courts with legal filings that countless judges have found are nonsensical and without legal basis.
All eight of Rondon’s suits were dismissed within week by judges who held that the suits “were difficult to understand and lacked factual evidence,” the Cleveland newspaper reported. But those rejections didn’t stop Rondon.
In January 2012, he filed three more lawsuits against three banks, the Federal Reserve Bank of Cleveland, the governor of Ohio and the state Legislature. He accused the assorted defendants of violating the federal Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations (RICO) Act.
Rondon said in his filing that he was bringing the suits because the defendants had attempted to “humiliate, diminish and negation of authority [sic] from which sovereign citizen without political lien or venue takes severe injury.” Less than a month later his suits were dismissed as baseless.
Rondon was back in court again on Jan. 3, 2013, that time accusing the Social Security Administration of withholding payments to him while he was in jail. That suit was dismissed a month later by a judge who ruled it “lacks plausibility.”
Rondon filed three more lawsuits on Aug. 2, 2013, naming as defendants the District Court, the Middleburg Heights Building Department and the Social Security Administration. The newspaper account says all three suits were dismissed by Oct. 16.
Judge John R. Adams wrote that Rondon’s suits were “rambling and incoherent” and his contention that he had been denied due process by the courts was “devoid of any factual support for such assertions.”

Israel’s hugely controversial “nation-state” law, explained
Supporters call Israel’s new Jewish nation-state law a “defining moment.” Critics say it’s “apartheid.”

JERUSALEM — Israel passed a controversial new “nation-state law” last week that’s sparking both celebration and fierce debate over the very nature of Israel itself.
The law does three big things:
- It states that “the right to exercise national self-determination” in Israel is “unique to the Jewish people.”
- It establishes Hebrew as Israel’s official language, and downgrades Arabic — a language widely spoken by Arab Israelis — to a “special status.”
- It establishes “Jewish settlement as a national value” and mandates that the state “will labor to encourage and promote its establishment and development.”
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s far-right government backed the legislation and was overjoyed at the law’s passing. Netanyahu lauded the law as “a defining moment in the history of the state” — a phrase that was splashed across the front pages of Israel Hayom, the country’s most-read newspaper, which is often described as Netanyahu’s Fox News for its favorable coverage of his government.
But for Israeli Arabs, who make up one-fifth of Israel’s 9 million citizens, the new law was a slap in the face. When the law passed, Arab parliamentary members ripped up copies of the bill and shouted, “Apartheid,” on the floor of the Knesset (Israel’s parliament).
Ayman Odeh, the leader of a coalition of primarily Arab parties currently in the opposition, said in a statement that Israel had “passed a law of Jewish supremacy and told us that we will always be second-class citizens.”
Palestinians, liberal American Jews, and many Israelis on the left also denounced the law as racist and undemocratic. Yohanan Plesner, the head of the nonpartisan Jerusalem-based Israel Democracy Institute, called the new law “jingoistic and divisive” and an “unnecessary embarrassment to Israel.”
But at the core of the new law is a deep, existential debate that Israelis have grappled with almost since the country’s founding: Can Israel be both a “Jewish state” that protects and celebrates Jewish identity, and a liberal democracy that protects the rights of all minorities, including non-Jews?
The new law is about longstanding disputes over borders and identity
Founded in 1948 in the wake of the Holocaust, Israel has long struggled with its self-identification as both a Western-style democracy that affords equal rights to all citizens regardless of race or religion and a country envisioned as a refuge for Jews.
Waves of Jewish immigrants from Arab countries as well as from Russia and Eastern Europe, South America, and Ethiopia have kept Israel’s Jewish population growing. Under Israel’s law of return, any Jew can easily become an Israeli citizen.
But during Israel’s war for independence, which Palestinians call the nakba, or catastrophe, 700,000 Palestinians were expelled or fled their homes. Today, their descendants remain refugees, and many still live in urban, slumlike refugee camps across the Middle East. Palestinians who remained in Israel in 1948 were offered citizenship and now make up 21 percent of the population.
In the decades since its founding, Israel has fought several wars with its Arab neighbors, and battled Palestinian uprisings and terror attacks.
Today, Arab Israelis have a different legal status from the 350,000 Palestinians who live under Israeli occupation in East Jerusalem, the 2.5 million who live in the Palestinian Authority-administered West Bank, and the 1.9 million who live in the blockaded Gaza Strip under the rule of Hamas, which the US and several other Western countries have designated a terrorist organization.
Those populations of Palestinians are technically stateless. This means that, for instance, Palestinians in East Jerusalem can’t vote in Israeli national elections or obtain Israeli passports, among other restrictions. For Palestinians in the West Bank and Gaza, it means that major parts of their lives are controlled by Israel — a country they have no direct voice in.
Arab Israelis, on the other hand, are citizens of Israel and therefore, at least in theory, have access to the same passports, elections, education, health care, infrastructure, and security as Jewish Israelis.
But while they certainly enjoy more rights than Palestinians in East Jerusalem, who in turn have it better than Palestinians in the West Bank, who have it far better than Palestinians in Gaza, Arab Israelis say that since the state’s founding, in practice they have not been afforded the same rights as Jewish Israelis. This is one reason why many Arab Israelis refer to themselves as Palestinians with Israeli citizenship.
The Association for Civil Rights in Israel, an Israeli human rights organization, has documented entrenched discrimination and socioeconomic differences in “land, urban planning, housing, infrastructure, economic development, and education.” More than half the poor families in Israel are Arab, and Arab municipalities are the poorest in Israel, according to ACRI.
What’s more, ACRI says that Arab Israelis are treated with “hostility and mistrust” and that “large sections of the Israeli public [view] the Arab minority as both a fifth column and a demographic threat.”
For Arab Israelis, then, the new nation-state law is merely the culmination of years of institutional discrimination. Only now the discrimination is officially enshrined in Israel’s basic law — the country’s constitutional equivalent.
Here’s what the new law actually says
It’s worth breaking down the three parts of the law and examining each one individually to get a better sense of what the law actually says, and what it all means:
1) “The right to exercise national self-determination in the State of Israel is unique to the Jewish people.”
This declaration doesn’t just say that Israel is the historic homeland of Jews, which is a core part of Zionist ideology and the argument for the Jewish state’s existence in what’s now Israel.
Instead, this goes further to unequivocally state that Jews — and only Jews — have the exclusive right to “self-determination” within Israel.
In other words, only Jews have the right to determine what kind of state and society they live under. Which means that by default, non-Jews — such as Palestinian citizens of Israel, some of whom are Muslim and some of whom are Christian — don’t have that same right.
Supporters of this declaration say that Jews have the right to a place of their own just like other people have, and that enshrining this principle in the law is necessary to ensure that Israel remains under Jewish control.
Critics, on the other hand, say this measure is undemocratic and essentially enshrines two separate classes of citizens: Jews, and everyone else. Some even liken it to the strict racial segregation in South Africa under apartheid, in which the indigenous black African population was ruled by a colonial regime based on white supremacy.
2) “Hebrew is the language of the state,” while the Arabic language “has a special status in the state.”For 70 years, both Hebrew and Arabic were designated as official languages in Israel. This law just changed that.
Arabic is widely spoken by Palestinians in Israel, as well as by some Jewish Israelis with roots in Arab countries. Yet the assumption in Israel has long been that you need to know Hebrew to get a good education and job, and to be able to interact with official government bureaucracies, which largely conduct business only in Hebrew.
Arabic’s “special status” under the new law ensures that some things, like road signs, will remain in both languages.
But Arab Israelis say that stripping Arabic of its official status is meant to erase their identities and histories. They also say it will put them at an economic disadvantage, because Hebrew is often not taught well in schools in Arab Israeli communities.
3) The law mandates that the “state views Jewish settlement as a national value and will labor to encourage and promote its establishment and development,” without specifying where.This clause, interestingly, has angered both the law’s supporters and its opponents. The former say it doesn’t go far enough because it doesn’t specify Jewish settlements in the West Bank.
This is a fundamental issue for many religious and religious nationalist Israelis. They argue that the West Bank is part of Israel, both because Israel captured the land in 1967 and because it’s part of the biblical Holy Land. And since it belongs to Israel, the argument goes, Jewish Israelis are free to build settlements — small enclaves — in the West Bank.
Most of the international community, as well as Palestinians and more than a few Israelis, disagree. They say that the West Bank belongs to a future Palestinian state, and that Israel has been illegally occupying it since it seized the territory in 1967. As such, Jewish settlements in the West Bank are illegal under international law.
So by not specifically mentioning the West Bank, this provision in the new law walks a fine line, enshrining “Jewish settlement as a national value” without explicitly saying where those settlements might be.
Even so, opponents of this measure say it’s damaging not just with respect to West Bank settlements but also for Arab Israelis, as the law appears to create a legal right to separate Arabs from living in Jewish communities.
Supporters of the law say this is what a strong Jewish state looks like
The nation-state bill passed on July 19 with a vote of 62 to 55, after years of political debate (the law was first proposed in 2011).
Netanyahu was ecstatic.
“Today we made it law: This is our nation, language, and flag,” he said in a statement. “In recent years there have been some who have attempted to put this in doubt, to undercut the core of our being.”
In an age of hyperpopulism, where identity politics has made a resurgence as the liberal democracies of the post-World War II order face fundamental challenges from within, the nation-state law is a perfect power play for Netanyahu’s kind of nationalism — even if its actual application remains unclear.
But it’s the sentiment, rather than the specifics, that’s attracted much of the public’s attention.
Niran Dishin, a secular 24-year-old electrician and construction worker in southern Israel, told me he supports Netanyahu and the law, though he admitted that he didn’t really know the details of the legislation, as they didn’t directly impact him.
Like most Jewish Israelis, Dishin served in the Israeli Army for his compulsory duty, which he said has shaped his outlook and disenchantment about peace talks with Arabs. He is “proudly” Mizrachi, a term used to describe Jews who came from Arab countries and who have historically been marginalized by the Ashkenazi, or Eastern European, founders of Israel. Today, Mizrachim are a core Netanyahu voting bloc.
Dishin described Israel as both Jewish and democratic — but in his view of democracy, non-Jews, including Arab citizens, need to meet certain conditions to be given the same rights as him.
“This is a place of Jews,” Dishin said, citing the Bible. “I’m not saying that non-Jews can’t live here. But it’s a Jewish country. One who wants to get rights like every Jew has to give something to the country … has to prove himself.”
The new law reflects a deeper political shift in Israel and abroad
Some supporters of Israel have dismissed criticism of the nation-state law as just another opportunity to bash the country while bigger abuses happen elsewhere. But others see it as an indication that the Jewish state, and the values it claims to represent, are fundamentally shifting.
Netanyahu has aligned himself with illiberal leaders like Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin, and has even established relations with Saudi Arabia’s Crown Prince Mohammed Bin Salman.
And just hours before the nation-state law was passed, Netanyahu met with Hungary’s far-right Prime Minister Viktor Orbán in Israel. The two have bonded over their shared loathing of anything connected to the liberal, Jewish, Hungarian-born financier George Soros, as well as their shared anti-refugee views.
But Orbán and his government have also been accused of anti-Semitism over some of the language and images used in their attacks on Soros and Orbán’s praise of Hungarian Nazi collaborators. Netanyahu, though, has publicly painted a different picture of Orbán, calling him a “true friend of Israel” who has pledged to combat anti-Semitism and support Netanyahu’s brand of nationalism.
Internally, Netanyahu’s government has also restricted the space for political criticism, such as promoting laws that make it harder to fund human rights groups and forbidding groups that criticize the military or occupation of Palestinian land from speaking in schools.
In this context, the nation-state law has shone a light on the deep polarization in Israeli politics and society over the future direction of the country.
This divide was perfectly captured in a pair of images.
After the law’s passage, a lawmaker who supported it snapped a congratulatory selfie of himself, Netanyahu, and other colleagues. Yedioth Ahronoth, Israel’s second-leading newspaper, put it on the front page with the caption, “The selfie of the nation.”
A cartoonist from another paper, however, depicted the selfie instead as a scene from George Orwell’s Animal Farm, with Netanyahu and others drawn as pigs standing above the iconic phrase, “All animals are equal but some are more equal than others.”
Below we see in ISRAEL they are saying the same thing we say here in US------only a few are now EXTREMELY RICH after ROBBER BARON NETANYAHU sent all wealth to those very few TRIBE OF JUDAH-----and this says that this concentration of wealth in ISRAEL was worse than anywhere in the world.
So, our 99% of WE THE ISRAELIS are feeling the same way about those global banking 1% TRIBE OF JUDAH as we are.
'Much of Israel’s wealth is concentrated among a few families that own newspapers, banks and leading companies'.
'A 2009 Bank of Israel report found that Israel has among the highest such concentration of wealth in the Western world and that much of it was familial. The concentration of wealth could become problematic for the country, the report said'.
Here in US this ROBBER BARON few decades of sacking and looting was done by both global banking 1%---TRIBE OF JUDAH and KNIGHTS OF MALTA.
Israeli wealthy class grows, transforming a country
By Dina Kraft June 15, 2010 7:27 pm
HERZLIYA PITUACH, Israel (JTA) — Some of the wealthiest Israelis live on Galei Tchelet Street in this coastal town on a narrow road that seems to groan under the weight of its many mansions.
Rooftops and balconies of the grand homes peek out from beyond the walls covered in oleander and bougainvillea and the security gates that surround them, an eclectic mix of boxy white modern structures and sprawling Tuscan-style villas perched on a bluff overlooking the Mediterranean.
That such streets and tony neighborhoods exist in Tel Aviv suburbs such as the one in Herzliya Pituach, Kfar Shmaryahu and others — along with the new wave of luxury residential skyscrapers in Tel Aviv itself — attest to the new level of wealth bring achieved by a small but growing pool of Israelis.
Money, much of it fueled by Israel’s technology boom, is transforming a country once considered a bastion of socialist, even Spartan values.
“There is a real race on here now to make money,” said Amir Kurz, a writer for the business magazine Calcalist.
“If we once thought we lived the life of a socialist country, today everyone wants to study business and earn big,” Kurz told JTA. “Once the Israeli role models were figures from the army or cultural scene. Today it is businesspeople, the allure of joining the ranks of the wealthy. The goal is to be among those lucky few who, for example, are part of the high-tech boom and cashed in.”
Wealth watching has become something of a national sport in the last decade.
The Marker, Haaretz’s financial section, now publishes an annual magazine detailing the fortunes of the 500 richest people in Israel. The magazine estimates the accumulated wealth of this elite group at $75 billion. Israel’s overall gross domestic product is about $194 billion.
Between 2005 and 2007, Israel produced more millionaires per capita than any other country, although the rate has since slowed. The 2009 Merrill Lynch World Wealth report found that Israel now has 5,900 people with at least $1 million in liquid financial assets.
Israel never truly was the egalitarian utopia envisioned by its founders. But for most of its history, Israelis tended to earn and live modestly, and there was a sense of camaraderie in the country based on the perception that people lived basically on the same playing field, said Tal Shavit, head of the finance department at the College of Management in Rishon Le-Zion.
Now, however, there is a class of Israelis for whom horse farms, private jets, pool parties, vacation homes in Italy and yachting are a part of life.
Israel’s acceptance in May into the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development — the OECD, a European-based forum of top developed economies and democracies — represented a milestone in the country’s economic development.
At the same time, however, Israel has one of the highest rich-poor gaps in the developed world, with poverty rates exceeding 20 percent. Of Western countries, only the United States has higher poverty levels.
Research from the Adva Institute of Policy Research, an Israeli think tank that focuses on social policy, has shown that higher income groups have been the main beneficiaries of Israel’s economic growth, but not the middle and lower income groups.
“Israel is getting wealthier, but there is also much more poverty and crime,” Shavit said.
“I think we are slowly becoming more like America, for good and bad. But unlike America, we are in a daily crisis for survival, and so perhaps we are not ready to be like everybody else. A large socioeconomic divide weakens us as a society. What has helped us until now to be resilient as a nation was our sense of solidarity. Today there is a growing ethos of the individual before society, and once it was the other way around.”
Much of Israel’s wealth is concentrated among a few families that own newspapers, banks and leading companies. The wealthiest 16 families own 20 percent of the top 500 companies in Israel, according to a recent Israel Channel 10 report.
Nochi Dankner, for example, is the CEO of the cellular phone giant Cellcom, the Israeli insurance giant Clal and a major Israeli supermarket chain, Supersol.
“When we Israelis go out in the morning, there is no chance we will not, throughout the course of the day, put money in Yochi Dankner’s pocket,” said Kurz, the financial journalist.
Sheri Arison, Israel’s richest woman with $3.4 billion in net worth, inherited two of the largest companies in Israel, Bank Hapoalim and the construction company Shikun & Binui. She recently paid $4.3 million for a 2,045 square-foot apartment along the Tel Aviv beach, according to the business daily Globes. At $2,100 per square foot, it was one of the most expensive residential real estate deals in Israeli history.
Gil Shwed, founder and chairman of Check Point, the first company to market firewall products for securing computers, is an example of Israel’s new moneyed class; he is worth some $650 million.
Another Israeli who made millions in high tech is Avi Naor, a former CEO of Amdocs, one of Israel’s most successful high-tech ventures. Today he devotes his time to charity, focusing his efforts on improving road safety in Israel. Naor founded the organization Or Yarok (Hebrew for “green light”) after his teenage son was killed in a traffic accident.
Naor’s work is an example of the philanthropy that some among Israel’s new wealthy class have taken on in recent years.
Despite Israelis’ fascination and even pride in the growing ranks of the wealthy, there is also some resentment, as seen in calls to cap executive salaries. Tapping into that, a Knesset bill co-sponsored by Likud and Labor lawmakers was introduced this spring that seeks to keep CEO salaries at no more than 50 times the salary of the lowest-paid employee in the company.
Top managers can earn as much as $523,000 a month, compared to the $1,440 monthly income earned by the average Israeli, according to the Adva Institute.
“Israel now worships the golden calf of the free market: privatization and sink-or-swim competition,” Yossi Melman, a senior writer for Israel’s daily Haaretz, wrote in a blog for the Washington Post.
The government and analysts like Melman have concerns that so much wealth concentrated in the hands of so few gives the few too much political influence and is unhealthy for the Israeli economy.
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has said that one of his administration’s priorities is trying to fight the concentration of wealth.
A 2009 Bank of Israel report found that Israel has among the highest such concentration of wealth in the Western world and that much of it was familial. The concentration of wealth could become problematic for the country, the report said.
“That could have ramifications for the stability of the financial system and for economic activity,” the report said, “because both the control and ownership of the firms, and their performance and effect on the public’s well-being, depend on the nature of relationships within the families, and the strategies and tastes (and whims) of a few people.”
We will start our discussion on SOVEREIGN CITIZEN public policy by looking at ISRAEL and its 99% of WE THE ISRAELI citizens black, white, and brown citizens. We discuss often ZIONISM and how it is defined differently by different population groups. We shared that after WW2 and creation of STATE OF ISRAEL in LEVANT many RABBIS were against this stating it was SECULAR in goals----those goals being IMPERIALISM ---counter to what REAL JEWISH religious tenets enshrine. When we look at US SOVEREIGN CITIZENS and look at these same movement around the world we see the sovereign citizens are always the 99% being killed by these global banking 1% WORLD BANK structures.
This is current example of RABBIS protesting global banking 1% TRIBE OF JUDAH----these same protests were happening back in 1940s when STATE OF ISRAEL was created by TRIBE OF JUDAH KNIGHTS OF MALTA after WW 2. Those RABBIS back then KNEW freemasonry and secularism would KILL REAL JEWISH RELIGION. This is exactly what we are shouting today happening to our US CHRISTIAN religions.
Any protest movement getting space in national FAKE NEWS media can make one question if these this may be global banking 5% FAKE civil unrest----but we know JEWISH RABBIS were protesting in 1940s as this group is protesting today.
STATE OF ISRAEL UNDER NETANYAHU OPERATED ROBBER BARON FEW DECADES JUST AS CLINTON/BUSH/OBAMA DID IN US AND ALL THAT MONEY ENDED IN THE HANDS OF GLOBAL BANKING 1% OLD WORLD KINGS KNIGHTS OF MALTA TRIBE OF JUDAH-----that is .00014 % of people.
Israel’s hugely controversial "nation-state" law, explained
Supporters call Israel’s new Jewish nation-state law a "defining moment."…'
So, today in Israel the 99% of WE THE ISRAELI citizens are hit as hard with being brought down in wealth and assets as our US 99% WE THE PEOPLE.
THERE ARE NO HATERS WITH OUR 99% ---WHETHER IN US OR ISRAEL----PEOPLE ARE MAD AT THOSE 5% FREEMASON/GREEK PLAYERS HELPING GLOBAL BANKING 1% SACK AND LOOT RAPE AND PILLAGE THEIR SOVEREIGN NATION.
As we say often there is NOTHING RELIGIOUS about global banking 1% TRIBE OF JUDAH KNIGHTS OF MALTA-----they are simply 1000BC wealthy banking families.
Rebel Rabbis: Anti-Zionist Jews Against Israel
•Sep 7, 2016
VICE embeds with the London branch of the Neturei Karta, a group of controversial Ultra Orthodox Jews who campaign against Zionism and for the immediate dismantling of the state of Israel. Because of their unusual views, and support of people like ex-Iranian president Ahmadinejad and groups like the Hungarian far right Jobbik party, other Jewish people often label them as extremists. Reporter Milène Larsson goes behind the closed doors of this secretive community to understand why this Jewish group's anti-Israel sentiment has led them to join Palestinians protesting Israeli occupation and burn Israeli flags.
This week we want go back to the original definition of SOVEREIGN CITIZEN in THE AMERICAS as our 99% WE THE NATIVE AMERICAN citizens were declaring themselves as SOVEREIGN against global banking 1% OLD WORLD KINGS sending in what are today 99% WHITE SOVEREIGN CITIZENS as settlers.
So, our NATIVE citizens are the earliest of SOVEREIGN CITIZEN groups labeled as TERRORISTS ------today losing even that TRIBAL LAND.
'Are Native Americans Dual Citizens? (with pictures)
Native Americans are American citizens, however the U.S. government does not recognize their tribes as having separate sovereignity. Native American reservations, such as land in the Navajo tribal reservations, is considered to be held in trust by the U.S. government. Native Americans were not officially granted US citizenship until 1924.
Native Americans Sovereign Citizens -
Below we see what was discussed as LOST TRIBES OF ISRAEL----AND MOORISH claims to being SOVEREIGN CITIZENS----NATIVE AMERICANS and creating their brand of SOVEREIGN CITIZENS' MOVEMENT. So, now in US we have BLACK, WHITE, AND BROWN SOVEREIGN CITIZENS' MOVEMENTS-----all pretending to HATE each other when we are pretty sure they are all 5% freemason/Greek civil unrest civil war PLAYERS.

'More Native Americans Sovereign Citizens
What is Tribal Sovereignty? - Native American, American ...
From the U.S. viewpoint, tribes do not exist as truly sovereign and independent nations. Because of this disconnect about what tribal sovereignty means, there are those non-Natives that feel Native Americans are “super citizens” or have special rights that they themselves do not have. This could not be further from the truth'.
All this definition of SOVEREIGN CITIZENS is coming from the SOUTHERN POVERTY CENTER-----in the south attitudes towards poverty is far different then with REAL LEFT SOCIAL PROGRESSIVE LIBERALS.
So, today we have HOME-GROWN TERRORISTS as sovereign citizens being black, white, and brown citizens.
‘Sovereigns’ in Black
August 24, 2011
Members of ‘Moorish’ groups and other black Americans are taking up the ideas of the radical ‘sovereign citizens’ movement
On March 29, John McGauley, county recorder for Allen County, Ind., came home to find a disturbing message on his answering machine.
“Mr. McGauley, this is Jabbar Gaines-El. I’m calling about your article about the Moorish Americans,” it said. “I just wanted to let you know that if you ever have any problem with members of the Moorish Nation, you can call me.”
As it happens, McGauley, whose county encompasses the city of Fort Wayne, was having trouble with members of the “Moorish Nation.”
Starting in December 2010, nearly a dozen black men had come into his office and recorded bogus documents purporting to change their names, grant themselves “power of attorney general” over themselves, and proclaim their “Unalienable and Substantive Rights to Be, to Enjoy, and to Act, distinct in my aboriginal customs and culture; and determining my own political, social, and economic status of the state.”
McGauley was not thrilled to learn that their leader, who calls himself “Sheik” Jabbar Gaines-El, had uncovered his home number. “I got a very distinct impression from the phone call that they wanted me to know that they know where I live,” he told the Intelligence Report. “I’ve never wanted to own a gun in my life, but the phone call I got made me think about it for a second.”
Jabbar Gaines-El carries a “Nationality and Right to Travel” card that includes a “Tax Immune Number.”
The situation never turned violent, but McGauley’s gut sense that something was amiss was correct. Gaines-El, who politely declined the Report’s request for comment, is a 38-year-old Indiana native whose real name is Jabbar C. Gaines. He’s one of a growing number of black Americans who, as members of outlandishly named “nations” or as individuals, subscribe to an antigovernment philosophy so extreme that some of its techniques, though nonviolent, have earned the moniker “paper terrorism.” Communicating through social media and learning from an ever-expanding network of websites and online forums, they perplex and often harass law enforcement officials, courts, and local governments across the country.
What may be even stranger about Gaines and his black Fort Wayne cohorts is that the “sovereign citizens” ideology to which they adhere — a conspiratorial belief system that argues that most Americans are not subject to most tax and criminal laws promulgated by the government — was originally thoroughly anti-black. But its racist roots have been virtually forgotten by increasing numbers of black Americans who have melded it with selective interpretations of the teachings of pioneer black nationalist Noble Drew Ali, who founded the exclusively black Moorish Science Temple of America (MSTA) almost 100 years ago.
The core ideas of the sovereign citizens movement originated in the racist and anti-Semitic Posse Comitatus group, which roiled the Midwest in the 1970s and 1980s and believed that the county sheriff is the highest legitimate law enforcement authority. Posse ideologues argued, in effect, that God gave America to the white man and therefore the government cannot abridge most rights of whites unless they submit to a “contract” with that government. But black people were only made citizens by the 14th Amendment, they argued, meaning that they have permanently contracted with the government and therefore must obey all its dictates.
The movement of sovereign citizens — most of whom are clearly unaware of the ideology’s racist roots — has grown extremely rapidly in the last two or three years. And, while black Americans remain a relatively small fraction of the estimated 300,000 sovereign citizens nationwide, it seems clear that their numbers are growing. In the last year, more and more black sovereigns, including several arrested in Georgia and elsewhere for using bogus documents to try to steal houses, have been implementing the movement’s basic ideas and techniques, which have spread into a number of radical black nationalist groups.
That convergence may not be entirely surprising, given that the MSTA’s Noble Drew Ali taught that black “Moors” were America’s original inhabitants and are therefore entitled to self-governing, nation-within-a-nation status. (Many American black nationalist groups refer mistakenly to the people of northern Africa as black; in fact, the Moors were a mix of Arabs, Berbers and black people.) Today, black nationalists who see themselves as Moors and white sovereign citizens both believe they have key rights that pre-date by eons the present government.
In practice, the conduct of “Moors” can be nearly identical to that of their white counterparts in the sovereign citizen movement.
The weapon of choice for both is paper. A simple traffic violation or pet-licensing case can provoke dozens of court filings containing hundreds of pages of pseudo-legal nonsense. These fake documents typically are written in nonsensical language that is all but incomprehensible to non-sovereigns.
“The first five or six or eight times we saw these guys, they were belligerent, they were hard to get along with,” McGauley recalled. “They came in here and immediately said, ‘We aren’t subject to these rules.’ They’re standing there at the counter lecturing my staff on their independence from the recording statutes and the fees that go along with them, and basically saying, ‘We aren’t governed by the laws of Indiana.’”
They refused to pay the fees associated with filing the documents, McGauley said, and seemed unconcerned when he explained that their name-change and other documents had no legal validity.
But McGauley’s alarm bells really went off when he learned that at least one Moor had used his “Power of Attorney General” document to open a bank account and pass a number of bad checks. Concerned that the others would use similar bogus papers to commit fraud, he contacted law enforcement and the local media.
Soon afterward, the Fort Wayne Journal Gazette published an article describing what the Moors were doing and warning locals to be on alert for official-looking documents that seemed “off.” The article quoted McGauley extensively. Two days later, he found Gaines’ message on his answering machine.
A few weeks after that, Frost Illustrated, a weekly newspaper aimed at black readers in Fort Wayne, turned over its front page to Gaines, who accused McGauley of racism and excoriated him for “spewing” what Gaines characterized as “negative propaganda.”
“It is my contention there exists a conspiracy within the local halls of government to deliver ‘smear’ tactics against the Moorish Republic with the aim and attempts to discourage unregistered Moors … from declaring their true and authentic nationality,” Gaines wrote in an editorial laced with sovereign theory.
Roots of the Moors
The Moorish Science Temple of America was founded in Newark, N.J., in 1913 by Timothy Drew, a North Carolina native who changed his name to Noble Drew Ali and proclaimed himself a prophet. Drew Ali taught that the earth’s original single continent, called Amexem, was inhabited entirely by Moors. A massive earthquake split the continent and created the Atlantic Ocean, leaving those in what became the Americas as that continent’s first inhabitants, long before the arrival of the ancestors of American Indians.
God eventually sent European colonists to enslave the Moors as punishment for their forgetting their history and ways, Drew Ali said. The only way for black Americans to regain their heritage, he preached, was to “proclaim their nationality and their Divine Creed … and know that they are not Negroes, Colored Folks, Black People or Ethiopians, because these names were given to slaves by slave holders.” Instead, MSTA members were given cards and passports identifying them as Moorish Americans.
Unlike the white-dominated sovereign citizen movement today, however, MSTA was explicitly not antigovernment. Asserting their noble Moorish heritage was supposed to enable blacks to gain the government’s recognition and respect as full citizens rather than second-class descendants of slaves. Drew Ali exhorted young MSTA members to “see the duty and wisdom of at all times upholding … obedience to law, respect and loyalty to government,” and “not to use any assertion against the American flag.”
Many white sovereign citizens today also carry fake IDs proclaiming themselves members of imaginary nations, but these are supposed to show that they are outside U.S. jurisdiction and therefore not subject to codes, statutes or courts.
The MSTA fragmented rapidly after Drew Ali’s death in 1929, but his call for reclaiming a proud heritage has captured the imagination of tens of thousands of black Americans — including Jabbar Gaines-El and his fellow travelers in Fort Wayne. They, like those in many MSTA offshoots and other black nationalist and black Muslim groups, took to adding suffixes like “Ali,” “El,” “Dey,” “Bey,” and “Al,” to their last names.
Today, the head of MSTA is none too happy to see its prophet’s words used to encourage antigovernment activity.
MSTA’s grand sheik, Brother R. Jones Bey, is arbiter of orthodoxy for the movement’s members. He believes the behavior of groups like Gaines’ is utterly out of line with the prophet’s teachings.
“We do not follow ‘sovereignty.’ The prophet never talked about that,” he told the Intelligence Report. “Our organization has been misunderstood by people who see the value of our religion but don’t want to conform,” he said. “They are not members of our organization.
I don’t know what they’re doing, because they’re misrepresenting the Moorish Science Temple of America.”
Jones Bey said that the proliferation of non-members claiming ties to the MSTA and Noble Drew Ali and imbued with sovereign ideas came to his attention about a year ago. MSTA immediately added to its website a note stating that it does not endorse sovereign ideas or behavior. “We are citizens of the United States of America, and we want to make our contribution to the United States of America, not tear it down,” Jones Bey said.
That’s not how Gaines-El sees it. He predicates his argument that Moors are not U.S. citizens on the U.S. Supreme Court’s 1857 Dred Scott ruling, which described black people as “beings of an inferior order, and altogether unfit to associate with the white race, either in social or political relations, and so far inferior that they had no rights which the white man was bound to respect.”

World Citizen / Global Granny
Posted on October 22, 2018 by elspethc
Having a great time at the Block Island Peace Project, and doing online research, I discover that my self appointed name of world citizen is in fact already something that is possible. I am going to get myself a World Passport – from the World Service Authority which is validated by the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, and is reported to have sometimes worked for exit and entry to various countries. Click here to read the rationale: You too can be a World Citizen- in fact, you are one already, you just have not got your passport yet.
Although I believe the UDHR is one of the best documents ever produced [better even than the US constitution and that one is pretty good too] I am of course not convinced that the World Passport will be a very useful acquisition, even though Einstein apparently said it was a great idea. And even though these great documents are regrettably too often ignored rather than heeded. Getting the passport seems to be mainly rich celebrities feeling progressive, and thus supporting the over 10 million stateless people in the world today. UNCHR says the number of displaced people and refugees has never been greater. It is in fact shocking, so the use of the World Passport is really that if I get one, it enables someone stateless to get at least something that says who they are. [I hope. It is worth it for that alone, as not being very rich, I have to work out what charities to support with my tiny donations.]
One thing leads to another and I remembered that in 2009 – that was 9 years ago – I wrote a poem about being a global granny. 2009 was the one and only time my grandchildren happened to be in the same place – it was their grandfather’s 70th birthday celebration. So, here is the poem, and the photo of Rory, Fiona, Ali, Louis and Ruby, the Crawford cousins – together. The chinese branch have since commuted between China and New Zealand, as readers of this blog know. This year they have finally left China and are settled in Palmerston North… I think…
21st Century Global Grandmother
Once upon a time
one could arrange
for good or ill.
Make some choice
of future in-law family.
introduce some girls
known to one
to one’s sons.
Hoist by one’s own encouragement
celebration of diversity,
to live life to the full.
Sons make their own choices
expectations and reality diverge
Twenty-first century grannyhood
Third son has not given me the title.
I wait to hear if he ever will.
Second, age fifteen, went to America.
Not then, but there,
he found his independent glorious girl
and founded his dynasty.
upfront, in your face,
all three american:
My beautiful granddaughters
Teach me assertiveness.
My first born travelled east,
teaching English as a foreign language.
Fell in love with China
and all things chinese
including Xin Yan,
bright swallow bird
offering her admiration
engaging his happiness,
and less predictably,
producing non-identical twins
The unintentional consequence
being, unlike in America,
my vocal capacity
for in-law communication
faster than lettuce in a hotpot.
Defeated under an onslaught of difficulties
later in life.
Xin yan and my son
both speak good chinglish
and my chinese is better
than the other grandparents’
but nevertheless my voice
is a trigger for laughter
undermining already shaky
diction and well-meant advice.
And sometimes, regrettably,
a trigger for tears
as I mind what happens too much.
I also suspect
in defence of a daughter
who should now belong
to her husband’s family,
but being western, that family
Me, myself, alone in China,
neglected to claim
the expected authority.
Which is confusing.
I am the most important
granny, the Father’s mother.
My helpful co-granny
is only mother’s mother
A lesser role.
This reversal of american experience
upset learned grannyhood.
In america mother’s mother
is offered a natural due.
Father’s mother respected
though vote of confidence.
has to be earned.
Helpfully, I remembered my mother
our occasional clashes,
and how much I came to love
the thoughtful regard of my own mother-in-law
the other granny to my
crash course mothering.
The rule is let them learn somehow
without much bothering.
Except that twins defy the rules
while everyone learns.
To have both sons and twins
wins the lottery of parenthood
Present and future fortune,
Immediate elevation of all grandparents
to very superior status.
Mixed parentage apparently doubles the luck
Strangers point to my pushchair.
I learn to understand chinese,
unwhispered awestruck voices,
nainai hun xue shuang bao tai
“that’s her, the western granny,
grandmother of the mixed blood twins”.
Some dilemmas of grandparenthood
are shared in either place
though stretched even more by the
deciding to move to New Zealand
which is even further away.
How long to stay,
how much to help,
Let them find their own way.
Balance with one’s own life
Feel the distance daily.
I am a travelling granny.
Always separated from someone,
family or friend.
I decide on separations
made regularly and often
in child sized remembrance.
The bewilderment of language
and culture shocks
both sides of the world
are transcended by excited welcome.
Armswinging hugs from
already bilingual boys
who know which granny they are talking to
and girls old enough to email
when I am not there
and come to my place for sleepovers
when I am.
Twenty first century
brings newness every day.
Experience beyond imagining
joins age, grey aches and pains,
joy, gratitude, good fortune.
As long as I can, I will be:
A global grandmother.
They have all grown up, the girls more likely to be playing soccer instead of Disney. I found some more recent photos. Wish they might be together again one day. Until then, I travel, the families have work and school, too many commitments.

This Baltimore neighborhood has built an informal home camera network to fight crime. Police say it’s working.
By Jessica Anderson
Baltimore Sun |
Oct 21, 2019 | 5:00 AM
Arch McKown and his wife were out walking their dog one evening this summer when they came across a neighbor who told them he had recently been attacked by two young boys.
The man recalled how the boys threw rocks and food containers at him, and that he unsuccessfully tried chasing them down. He called police.
McKown, the Patterson Park Neighborhood Association safety chair, went home and pulled footage from his own security cameras. There it was: video of the boys fleeing. He recognized one by his shoes.
McKown’s devices are part of a broad, informal network of about 500 home cameras operating around Patterson Park. Neighbors regularly share images from their Amazon Ring, Nest or other home cameras that have become increasingly common and capture activity on porches, stoops and alleyways. The residents compare images of package thieves, carjackers, street robbers and burglars.
In some cases, the group has been able to track a criminal’s path through the neighborhood, McKown said. Neighbors’ observations have sometimes contributed to arrests. In other instances, neighbors have worked to intervene with young culprits without involving police.
As burglaries plummet around Patterson Park, police say the community watch has helped.
Neighbors often see the same faces and see patterns, McKown said.
“We realized pretty quickly that a lot of theft and crime was committed by repeat actors, so you can start to see trends," said McKown, who works in biotech sales.
“It empowers the neighborhood. Anytime we can have the video cameras is definitely a bonus for my detectives.”
McKown said more then 200 people participate, and some houses have multiple cameras for about 500 total throughout the neighborhoods around Patterson Park.
In 2017 he and others from the community association began piecing together images using social media, information from police and crime data from the city’s Open Baltimore website. Now, when they receive information about an incident, McKown reaches out to neighbors with cameras, asking them to check their devices and whether they are willing to send footage.
“You can kind of overlay where the crimes are happening,” he said.
McKown estimated that in the past two years the network has contributed to solving dozens of cases and connected potential suspects to additional cases.
Arch McKown, safety chair of the Patterson Park Neighborhood Association, speaks at his home about a network of residents with security cameras that have helped identify people perpetrating crimes in the neighborhood.“Tangentially, it’s hundreds of cases,” McKown said.
Capt. Brian Hopkins of the Southeast District said the community has played a role in solving and preventing burglary and package theft cases.
“There’s definitely been a positive movement forward," he said. "It’s definitely been a help ... but I also think it’s a deterrent.”
Across the Southeast District, police data shows larceny is down 8% while burglaries are up 4% this year compared with the same time last year. However, McKown and Hopkins said that burglaries in neighborhoods surrounding Patterson Park are down to about half of what they were at the same time last year.
“It empowers the neighborhood,” Hopkins said. “Anytime we can have the video cameras is definitely a bonus for my detectives."
McKown said that in some cases, residents prefer to deal with one another instead of police. He said the participation is voluntary, meaning only residents have access and can choose to retrieve images from their own cameras and share it with neighbors or police.
Other Baltimore neighborhoods are embarking on similar projects, part of a nationwide surge. Earlier this year, the Northwest Faith-Based Community Partnership received a $15,000 grant to build a network of private surveillance cameras with the help of Amazon’s Ring.
But such government-backed programs concern civil liberties advocates, who worry about who will have access to any tapes, and how long they will be preserved. Locally, Baltimore officials continue to debate using a surveillance plane, which would allow detectives to track individuals and follow up using street-level cameras from the CitiWatch system.
The American Civil Liberties Union has said individuals have a right to record on their property. When people collect footage, they decide whether to share it with law enforcement, which is less concerning, the privacy advocates have said.
ACLU officials did not respond to requests for comment for this article.
McKown stresses the neighborhoods — and the participants in the group — are diverse, and that the alleged perpetrators come from both the city and its suburbs. McKown said the effort is about community members looking out for one another. “It’s not at all a vigilante thing,” he said. He also emphasized that the group’s remedies don’t necessarily include police.
Desiree Peterkin, 40, an educator who has lived in the neighborhood for 14 years, said she is proactive in the community association and sees value in neighbors swapping information.
“As with the rest of the neighborhood, we keep each other informed of suspicious activity,” she said. Peterkin, who is African American, is aware of the concerns of stereotyping minorities — “I’ve been on the receiving end of people feeling uncomfortable. I am very cognizant of stereotyping" — but she believes in the information-sharing approach.
The communication led to her recovering her expensive Fuji Gran Fondo road bike after it had been stolen from her car.
“It’s important to get to know your neighbors," she said. “I don’t think a lot of neighborhoods are like ours.”
If other blocks were as close-knit, it would create a safer community, she said.
In 2018 the neighborhood experienced a rash of carjackings and robberies, with the attackers stealing car keys as they robbed locals on the streets. Jeeps were a particularly big target.
“People were really on edge,” McKown recalled.
Members began looking at police reports, pulling their own footage and identifying patterns. Together the network figured out where the carjacking crew stashed its cars, and passed that information on to police. About a dozen people were charged, including teenager Dawnta Harris, McKown said.
Weeks later, Harris — while on home confinement for the carjackings — was arrested and charged with running over and killing Baltimore County Police Officer Amy Caprio, who was struck while responding to a burglary call at a Perry Hall home.
The Jeep Wrangler driven by Harris and three other teens had been stolen from one of McKown’s neighbors, whose home was burglarized. During the burglary, the thief stole a spare car key that had been stored in a dresser.
McKown said many of the younger kids who are involved in crimes often lack basic needs, and the neighborhood tries to help.
“They need direction, they need structure. The parents have whatever challenges they have," McKown said. In some cases, when a child is identified, McKown said, he will walk down to the house and talk to the parents.
"I ask, “How can I help you? That’s what I start with,” he said. Sometimes that leads to neighbors mentoring the kids; other times it might be directed to more concrete activities, he said.
He said the community association also works with Banner Neighborhoods, a nonprofit that takes at-risk, lower-income kids and involves them in after-school sports and other activities.
“A lot of our kids are hopeless. Their idols are the local drug dealers," said Waverly Carter, who served as a coach at Banner. "We provide another alternative to help them see their full potential.”
After McKown identified the 9-year-old boy who threw a rock at his neighbor’s arm, McKown offered to hold a mediation between the neighbor and the boys, and their parents.
“I was pretty furious," the neighbor said. He asked not to be identified citing safety concerns. He said he told the boys, “What you did hurt me. What you did is wrong and you have to understand what impact it has on people.”
The neighbor said one kid did seem moved, though the other didn’t seem to listen.
“I just hope that they hear something,” he said. The neighbor said he’s seen the kids since the July incident but hasn’t had any problems, and has said hello to them.
McKown said it’s not just the cameras that’s benefiting the community — it’s the attitude of residents who want to see positive changes.
“It’s about building a stronger social fabric,” he said.
