The Common Law 

"Much More Powerful than a mere Traffic Ticket!"  

The common law can be described as; law not initially set down in writing, unlike statutes or constitutions (which are derived from the legislative branch of government). Common laws received their binding power and the force of law, by long immemorial usage, and by their universal reception. Common law predates written law. Much of the foundation of common law is derived from biblical teachings, like the Ten Commandments. Common law is the underlying foundation of our Constitution and the principles of law used by our judicial system today. Common law is the law of the land!

Who is common law intended for? The answer is; flesh & blood men and women, or sovereigns. The purpose for legislative law or administrative law, which includes all codes and regulations, are to regulate the actions and behavior of artificial entities, such as corporations, associations, organizations and political & governmental bodies, not flesh and blood people.


Sovereign or Slave ...which one are you? 

As sovereign you are not subject to any law besides that of common law. I realize that this idea is totally foreign to most of you, as we have been erroneously taught all of our lives that we are subject to laws passed by the legislature or those in the lesser bodies of government. In United States Supreme Court decision of  Yick Wo v. Hopkins 118 U.S. 356 in 1886 the Supreme Court agreed with the fact that flesh and blood people are sovereigns in their own right, not subject to legislative or administrative law. This United States Supreme Court decision was handed down before our legal system became nearly as corrupt as it is today in America. 

The case of Yick Wo v. Hopkins takes place in the late 1800's and is about Yick Wo, an immigrant Chinese laundry owner in San Francisco who was fined and then jailed for failure to obey a local ordinance passed by the San Francisco Board of Supervisors requiring all laundry owners to relocate laundries housed in wooden structures to brick or stone structures or to close down their businesses. The case is most often cited as a civil rights case because the all white San Francisco Board of Supervisors and Sheriff Hopkins selectively enforced the newly passed ordinance along racial lines.

The white laundry owned laundries were mostly housed in brick or stone structures, and the few white owned laundries located in wooden structures were all given a free pass, while not one of the immigrant Chinese laundry owners were exempted from the ordinance. Most of the immigrant Chinese laundry owners were poor and could not afford to relocate their laundries to brick or stone structures. The Chinese laundry owners, like Yick Wo who continued to operate their laundries located in wooden structures in defiance of the order were fined and then jailed when they didn't pay their fines.

On August 24, 1885, Yick Wo petitioned the supreme court of California for the writ of habeas corpus, claiming he was illegally deprived of his personal liberty by the defendant Sheriff Hopkins, the sheriff of San Francisco County.

Justice Matthews states in the U. S. Supreme Court decision in favor of Yick Wo: "Sovereignty itself is, of course, not subject to law, for it is the author and source of law; but in our system, while sovereign powers are delegated to the agencies of government, sovereignty itself remains with the people, by whom and for whom all government exists and acts."

Justice Matthews makes a very profound statement in the case of Yick Wo v. Hopkins; clearly stating that we (you and I) are 'sovereigns', not subject to law. Justice Matthews did not just dream up the concept that we are sovereigns and as a sovereign we are not subject to law. Of course not, he had very sound bases for his profound proclamation, which was based upon his knowledge and belief that God created man and decreed man to be a sovereign. Justice Matthews also based his opinion upon the knowledge and belief that our nation's founding fathers strongly held this same belief and incorporated it into the fabric of our constitution.

Justice Matthews reminds us; while, yes it is true that our government has sovereignty delegated to it by the people, the people are the creators of the government and of the administrative law and we the creators or sovereigns are not subject to the law as its creators.

Remember and teach your children well that you and they are the true sovereigns. Your place is above government and never beneath the feet of government. God is the Sovereign Creator of our universe, we serve God and never does God serve His creation; man. Man is the sovereign of his domain and created government to serve him within his domain. An axiom of truth decrees that; the creator never serves his creation. Ask yourself who is serving whom today? How did it get to this point? The true responsibility and blame lies with us and all Americans who preceded us following the Civil War.

Will you be the master or will you continue to be the slave? The choice of slave has already been made for you and your children unless you have the will and courage to change it
