State citizenship restored
Before the 14th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution (USC), there was only one form of citizen: a State citizen, meaning a citizen of one of the States. Citizenship, back then, was a States matter and did not pertain to the national government, each individual State setting its own standards for citizenship. The 14th Amendment changed that, creating a new form of national citizen, beholden to and empowered by the national government, known as a United States citizen. Over time, all State citizenship has been swallowed up by national citizenship, so that Americans no longer claim to be, or think of themselves, as citizens of any particular State, but as citizens of the whole nation. When an American tries to assert the former form of citizenship, which was a superior form, they are often labeled as crackpots.
Under the New Articles of Confederation (NAC), there is no national government, therefore there can be no national citizenship. The NAC reverts to the former form, putting all citizenship matters back into the hands of the States. Thus, there is no such thing as a Confederate citizen, or a citizen of the Confederacy, under the NAC, only citizens of a particular State of the Confederacy. The inferior form of United States citizen is abolished and only the superior form of State citizen remains. The NAC does this because the inferior “United States citizenship” confers only revocable privileges, whereas the superior State citizenship confers rights, privileges and also, perhaps, even duties and responsibilities. As the NAC is like an unabridged Bill of Rights, the restoration of citizen rights is part of its objective, therefore the concept of a national citizen must be done away, replaced by the former form of State citizen.
Four types and two categories of citizens
The NAC provides for four types of State citizenship and two State citizenship categories: jus soli, jus sanguinis via manus, jus matrimonii via manus, and jus polis. The first two fall into the natural-born category, while the last two fall into the naturalized category. The NAC details only part of the rights of citizens, even that part that deals in federal matters, and it distinguishes between the two categories, one being a superior form of citizenship (natural-born), possessing greater rights, privileges, duties and responsibilities, and the other being inferior (naturalized), possessing lesser rights, etc. Exactly what all these rights, privileges, duties and responsibilities are, for each of the four types of citizens, is not given by the NAC, for these are State matters, each State making such determinations for its particular citizens. This restores yet another right, even a State right, for it is the right of each State to “set in order” its own citizens. It is not right for one State to dictate to another State what its citizens can or cannot do, yet under the USC, this is exactly what happens by having the national government destroy all State citizenship rights and then dictate citizenship terms to all the people of the several States, making them, in essence, serfs, and not citizens.
Article XII. Section 1. A person born within the jurisdictional boundaries of any State of this Confederacy shall be a natural-born citizen of the State in which he or she was born.
It does not matter whether one or both of your parents are citizens or residents of any State or not, if you are born within the confines of the Confederacy, we claim you as ours. Thus, the NAC welcomes and provides for so-called “anchor babies.” What it does not provide for, though, is free education, free medical services, free food or free anything else. Having a child born here does not make it easier to support the child, nor easier for the parents to become residents or citizens. All it does is confer American, natural-born citizenship upon the child. In other words, this is a jurisdictional issue which confers a right, or a claim to a right. If you have a child born on our land, that child becomes our citizen. This is jus soli, the right of the soil.
Jus sanguinis via manus
The right of blood (jus sanguinis) is conferred via the jurisdiction of manus:
Article XII. Section 1. Men who are natural-born citizens of any State shall have power to confer natural-born citizenship upon any of their children who are born abroad while living with their father, by issuing a writ of citizenship, which writ shall be certified by the State of which the father is a citizen, which certified writ shall be binding and valid in the eyes of the law.
The jurisdiction of manus has concrete bounds, thus, the NAC specifies, “while living with their father.” In effect, this is merely jus soli applied to the jurisdictional boundaries of a natural-born, American man’s household. It does not matter that the man’s household is located in another part of the world, outside of the boundaries of the States of the American Confederacy. He, as a natural-born citizen of one of the American States, becomes an agent of the State, through the application of his manus in the conferral of citizenship, as if his house and lands were upon American lands, even though located abroad. As he himself possesses natural-born citizenship, he has what it takes to confer the same. The application of his manus, then, empowers him to make the conferral.
Manus is not mentioned in this section, because it does not need to be. The NAC previously declared:
Article III. Section 2. …every man alone shall bear rule in his own house; …every man shall have power to set his house in order, having his children and house in subjection to him alone with all gravity, even as unto a king, according to the bounds and conditions of his law, …that every man shall set in order his family…
Having children in subjection to their father alone is another way of saying they are “in his power.” In other words, this section declares that a man’s manus extends to his children. Manus being a kingly power, every father has power to confer citizenship, but not necessarily authority to do so. The NAC, then, authorizes American fathers, not American mothers, for only the fathers have power (manus) to confer, the children being in his power alone.
Seed and soil
The NAC takes the ancient view of man as seed sower and of woman as soil; and when a man sows his seed in soil, the seed is still his. Ownership of the seed does not transfer to the soil, neither when it is sown, nor when some of that seed germinates in the soil and grows into a plant (a child); the plant life came from the seed, not the soil, therefore all children belong to men. This revives the ancient concept of “children of men” and does away with the modern misconception that soil can own the plants that grow in it (“children of women.”) The seed and soil are again separated and distinguished by the NAC, and the plants growing in the land are said to come from and belong to the parent seed, not the parent soil. The NAC, then, restores male reproductive rights, putting all children back into the father’s power (his manus,) as it was anciently.
Additionally, the restoration of manus revives the concept of a valid claim upon any foreign seed that is sown in soil possessed (owned) by him. Manus puts the soil in the sower’s power, so that he not only has claim on his seed, but also on the soil. Both, then, become his, making him, essentially, a landowner. Just as a man who owns a piece of land has a valid claim upon all of the plants growing in it, being able to claim them as his own possession, so the husband of a wife, married with manus, has claim on all germinated seed that she bares. She is in his power, thus he “owns” the land and has exclusive right to sow his seed in her. But should foreign seed be sown in her, he, as the landowner, has first claim on that seed, also, and it becomes his child should it germinate and grow into a plant. The foreign seed sower loses all claim to his seed because he sowed in someone else’s land.
Jus soli is based upon this very concept, that if you produce a plant (have a child) on our land, then that child is our citizen. We claim the seed which is sown here, by citizens and foreigners alike. As American land is owned by Americans, the children born upon that land are likewise Americans, or have claim to being Americans. In like manner, as a manus-married woman is in her husband’s power (the feminine soil is his,) the children she bares have a claim to his citizenship status. The NAC authorizes a man to use his power (manus) to confer natural-born citizenship upon his children, born by his manus-married wife (who is the soil in his power,) while living with their father abroad, because these children have a valid claim upon his natural-born citizenship status. Likewise, the manus-married wife also has a valid claim upon his citizenship status, but as she is not born into this citizenship claim, she cannot receive natural-born citizenship, but must be naturalized by her husband’s decree.
These are all very ancient understandings codified and restored by the NAC, through the restoration of manus.
Jus matrimonii via manus
Article XII. Section 2. Men who are natural-born citizens of any State, that marry wives by right, with manus, shall have power to confer naturalized citizenship upon their wives, provided a wife first passes an English proficiency test and enters into a covenant to obey, honor and sustain the laws of the State of which her husband is a resident, both of which shall be administered by the State of which her husband is a resident; and such men shall naturalize their wives by issuing a writ of citizenship, which writ shall be certified by the State of which her husband is a resident, which certified writ shall be binding and valid in the eyes of the law.
Again the power of manus is used by the NAC to confer citizenship, this time upon a wife. None of these things, though, are automatic. The man has power to confer citizenship upon his children born abroad while living with him, and also upon his wife, but it is his prerogative whether to do so or not. As a father-king with manus, he has judicial power and authority, therefore, he alone must judge whether it is in the best interest of all parties (including the interests of his State) to confer State citizenship upon those of his house. He is not constrained by the NAC in any way to do so.
Article XII. Section 3. Three natural-born upstanding citizens of no small reputation, who are residents of the same city, town, village or municipality as a resident foreigner, who are well acquainted with the foreigner and can attest to the good character of the same, shall have power to petition for citizenship in his or her behalf, and put his or her name down on an election ballot of that city, town, village or municipality, so that the citizens thereof may give their voice for or against granting citizenship to said foreigner; and should the voice come in favor, the resident foreigner shall be empowered to take an English proficiency test, administered by his or her State of residence, and when the test has been passed, the foreigner shall have power to enter into a covenant, administered by the same State, to obey, honor and sustain the laws of said State, to be numbered as a naturalized citizen of said State, to renounce allegiance to the foreigner’s country of origin, to keep the peace and support the cause of liberty in the land, and to call him or herself an American; and after these ceremonies, said State shall issue a certificate of naturalized citizenship to the foreigner, which shall be valid and binding in the eyes of the law.
Jus polis is not a real term. I made it up. I combined the Latin jus with the Greek polis, to come up with a concept of “right of the city (or citizens.”) Essentially, this is the right of the citizens of a city to confer naturalized citizenship upon a city resident. Our word for citizen actually comes from the word city:
Middle English citizein, from Anglo-French citezein, alteration of citeien, from cité city
First Known Use: 14th century
Once again the NAC takes us back to an ancient time, even to the Greek city-states, using ancient forms to confer citizenship.
The effect of these three citizenship sections
It is my understanding and belief that the NAC will cause a mass exodus from all countries to America. These sections will allow all those who come here to quite easily become American citizens and thus to fully participate in our American way of life, either by birth, by manus, or by election. Many people in the world will alter their affairs accordingly, so that they can take full advantage of these new American citizenship laws. The end result is that America’s numbers are going to swell, not with illegal immigration, but with legal immigration and legal residency. American men will have their options increased considerably, taking wives and residency here in America, or abroad. It won’t matter much, as their wives and children can all be given citizenship and thus obtain the full benefits offered by American society.
In particular, foreign-bride manus marriage will sky-rocket, for foreign women will opt enter into it, that they can become fully Americanized by their husbands, which will nullify the current decline. In other words, the historic practice of American men to take foreign brides because of their more submissive cultural conditioning, compared to feminist American women who refuse to submit to a man’s authority, has all but evaporated, due to these same foreign women coming to America, learning of these “womanus” laws, becoming feminist-ized, and then divorcing and destroying their families and marriages to their American men, through the corrupt “womanus” laws and courts. All the cultural conditioning in the world cannot control the nature of women in a “womanus” environment. But manus will change that condition, due to the ever present danger of manus divorce, which potentially leaves a woman who wants out with absolutely nothing—no resources, no children (for they are “children of men”) and no masculine protection—which potential condition the female of our species simply cannot deal with, causing her to submit in order to retain these benefits. In other words, the “damsel in distress” foreigner will remain a “damsel in distress” in manus marriage, and submit to her husband, cutting down divorce statistics almost entirely and almost overnight.
The effect of these foreign bride marriages with manus will likewise cause a change among American women, who, feeling left out, will alter their ways and turn from their fighting feminist ways, choosing to enter into manus marriage, too, for being married in manus will be seen as better than not being married, at all. This will cause American men to see the world as their oyster, for all the world’s females will want to be married to an American man and will revert to their submissive state, completely undoing all these years of feminist conditioning. In other words, the War Between The Sexes, initiated by the feminists and conspirators, will suddenly come to an end, caused by the women of our nation, and all other nations, surrendering.
Genetic biodiversity, then, will explode in this country. When you take the women of all nations and bring them together into one nation, and marry them to the men of that nation, something magical happens. No other nation on the earth will be like America. We call ourselves the melting pot, but we haven’t seen nothing, yet. The NAC will cause a genetic upgrade in Americans that they simply will not be expecting, thinking that the NAC is merely a political law and will not affect them genetically.
This genetic explosion, on the marriage front, will be matched on the foreign resident front, as men come here from other countries, become citizens by election, and take American wives. The current practice of illegal immigrants coming here to have babies, the so-called anchor babies, to obtain benefits or to make an easier transition to citizenship, will end. People will come here legally for the freedoms and liberties and opportunities America offers, to become citizens and residents, to work and prosper in the land, to improve their lives and the lives of their children, and contribute to the great American society, not to suckle the government teats, for their will be no more governments teats from which to suckle. The NAC gets rid of the national teats and gives Americans the nullification power to get rid of all those State teats, effectively taking away the carrots.
Not only will American society, on American soil, change dynamically before everyone’s very eyes, as if the hand of God were suddenly starting to bless them in ways they had never imagined, but also Americans will alter world societies, as American men and women take their children to other countries, acting as a sort of leavening for the entire world, spreading around the spirit of freedom that is found here, abroad. This will be infectious and all will take immediate notice.
In short, these and other sections of the NAC will vastly alter American and world conditions.
Passports, yes, but not required
Article XII. Section 4. Congress shall issue a certificate to any natural-born or naturalized citizen of any State, who requests it, which shall certify that the same is a United States citizen, and which shall state the name and resident address of the citizen, and bear the signature of the citizen, and the seal of the united States in Congress assembled, which shall be a shackled and chained hand whose bonds are being broken apart by a pair of hands wielding a hammer and a chisel, or some other seal image, which Congress shall have power to determine, by law, but such certificates shall not bear the bearer’s image, nor any other information about the bearer, save the name and address and signature of the same; and such certificates shall request to all to whom it may concern to permit the bearer to pass through international borders without delay or hindrance and, in case of need, to give all lawful aid and protection. No natural-born or naturalized citizen of any State shall be required to bear such certificates, or any other identifying documents or effects, to leave the jurisdictional boundaries of these United States, nor to enter them.
Notice, in particular, the seal description: “and the seal of the united States in Congress assembled, which shall be a shackled and chained hand whose bonds are being broken apart by a pair of hands wielding a hammer and a chisel,” which seal image is in keeping with the general theme of liberty that permeates the NAC. This section, obviously, is aimed at the conspirators, who wish to have everyone biometrically scanned and implanted and chipped and documented, like a bunch of cattle.
Congress to control passage of people; States, passage of goods
Article XII. Section 5. The united States in Congress assembled shall have power to prohibit all non-citizens, who are not also the people of any of the States, from entering through the international land and sea borders of the Confederacy, and through all the air travel points of entry, for any reason whatsoever, excepting only race, culture, skin color, sex, age, disability, religion, creed, and physical characteristics. Any and all such prohibitions shall be enforceable by the watchmen established by Congress at the international borders, according to law.
Article XII. Section 6. Any State that has one or more international points of entry, or an international land or sea border, shall have power to restrict, according to law, imported goods brought through such entry points and borders, by any person, excepting personal weapons.
Notice, again, that although the States can restrict goods, they can’t restrict personal weapons. These passages are going to weaponize America and cause nightmares in the conspirators. Notice, also, that Congress is restricted from controlling commerce. The “commerce clause” of the USC has opened up the floodgates of big, intrusive government, drowning the American people in a sea of regulations and restrictions. That won’t happen again under the NAC. Commerce control goes back to the States, thank you very much; and Congress, you just get to control the passage of people at our borders. The effect of these sections will be enormous, as the American economy will lurch forward like a charging bull finally released from its bonds.
Citizenship and immigration are, understandably, important to all Americans, many of whom are from foreign countries, or whose ancestors are from foreign countries. It is to be expected that Article XII of the NAC will be a major talking point. It is also expected that virtually all Americans will recognize the superiority and wisdom of the NAC’s immigration and citizenship policy in comparison to the national government policy under the USC, which has created a breeding ground for illegal immigration activity. Also, the stifling of the economy, had under the USC, will cease under the NAC. All of this continues to show that on every front, the NAC keeps coming out the winner.
Feel free to disagree on any point mentioned in this post. Bring your strongest reasons against the NAC and let’s have an open debate. And for those who like the NAC and want to install it as the Supreme Law of the land, here is my advice and prediction (and also see this comment, and this comment and this comment) :
A continual strategy of debate will install the NAC in this country and I challenge anyone to prove me wrong. I say that Americans will jump at the chance to debate the NAC and to show that the Constitution is better, but, according to the rules of the debate, they will have to read the NAC first, and once read, they will be hard pressed to defend the Constitution. Thus, everyone who hears, or watches, or reads, or participates in, a NAC debate, will become convinced that the NAC is what this country needs.
