No Court of the United States issued the Court Opinions sent to you. The Constitutional Court of the Confederate States of America issued these opinions and they are for the main benefit of C.S.A. Registered Citizens, but also for regular folks in the South. The Constitutional Court has no jurisdiction over the United States or any other foreign nation, but does have jurisdiction over the Constitution of the CSA 1861. Conversely, the courts of the United States have no jurisdiction over the Constitutional Court of the Confederate States of America. Read about the Constitutional Court at www.CSAgov.org . What or who gave the Constitutional Court this authority to draw up its Court Opinions?
This question is more completely answered below on the summary of Constitutional Conventions, etc. because the authority was given to the Constitutional Court by the Citizens of the Confederacy via a series of Constitutional Conventions of such Citizens.
However, the Federal Courts of the United States had very questionable jurisdiction over the States prior to Lincoln (1789-1860).. After the secession of the Confederate States, the Federal (U. S.) Courts had no Jurisdiction and No power to enforce their dictates. As the war was finally lost by the CSA, Federal Union military occupation became a reality and still is a reality. However, raw power of an unlawful occupation does not gain jurisdiction and the U. S. Courts and Congress totally lack any Jurisdiction of the territory and property of the Confederate States of America. The U.S. and their robot supporters may try to claim that the many elections held since 1865 have granted them jurisdiction. Not so, since the satellite States that were set up in the South by the Federal Union were completely involuntary on the part of the Confederate Citizens as was their supposed rejoining of the Union and the new Constitution the Yankee appointees gave them. The fruits of a poisonous tree are usually also poisonous from a legal point of view, thus even today, the States in the South are mere satellites of Washington, D.C. and no real jurisdiction has been gained by the exercise of time and additional elections of mainly Washington appointees.What or who gave Authority to Create the Constitutional Court. The authority to create the Constitutional Court is a fundamental question often asked. The short answer is that the authority was that of the people in a Constitutional Convention delegates from 8 States. The authority of a Constitutional Convention is granted by the Declaration of Independence 1776 to wit:
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.
Authority of men. Where do men in a group get their authority to meet in a Constitutional Convention and have jurisdiction (dominion) to do so? That authority is granted by GOD THE FATHER! See the authority in the King James Old Testament:
GEN 1:2 And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.
The grant of “dominion” was the ultimate grant of jurisdiction by the LORD as the Creating King of the Universe to “man”. He tempered this grant with restrictions found in the Ten Commandments so that one man would not execute unrighteous and involuntary dominion over another man.
Our forefathers, notably Adam, Seth, Enoch, Noah, Abraham, Moses, Thomas Jefferson, Thomas McKean, Patrick Henry and Jefferson Davis, all under the obedience to the LORD and His Son Jesus Christ, as shown to us in the Bible have established the rights of man and the jurisdiction thereof to govern themselves and their posterity along with their neighbors for their freedom and happiness as well as their reasonable welfare and security. We follow in this line of jurisdiction and rights of government by and for free men. We have not come to force any knee to bow, but to work together in a partnership of government for which we have contracted together to restore. Those not contracted with us are, of course, not bound in any way in this effort nor do they bear any responsibility for the administration of the Government of the Confederate States of America as now partially restored. Yet the door of invitation is open to those Constitutionally qualified who are willing to contract with us for Registered C.S.A. Citizenship.
NOTE: A Constitutional Convention held by a certain group of people has jurisdiction for that group of people, but not necessarily for another group of different opinions and goals. But through a representative republican form of government, the will of the people as a whole is established by their ratification of their Constitutions and authority is shown below:CONSTITUTION OF THE CONFEDERATE STATE OF TEXAS 1861
ARTICLE I., SECTION 1. All political power is inherent in the people, and all free governments are founded on their authority, and instituted for their benefit�� and they have at all times the inalienable right to alter, reform or abolish their form of government, in such manner as they may think expedient; and, therefore, no government or authority can exist or exercise power within the State of Texas, without the consent of the people thereof previously given; nor after that consent be withdrawn.
CONSTITUTION OF THE CONFEDERATE STATE OF FLORIDA 1861
That the great and essential principles of liberty and free government may be recognized and established, we declare: ARTICLE 1, Section 1. That all freemen, when they form a social compact, are equal, and have certain inherent and indefeasible rights, among which are those of enjoying and defending life and liberty; of acquiring, possessing, and protecting property and reputation; and of pursuing their own happiness.
ARTICLE 1, Section 2. That all political power is inherent in the people, and all free governments are founded on their authority, and established for their benefit, and therefore, they have at all times an inalienable and indefeasible right to alter or abolish their form of government, in such manner as they may deem expedient.
CONSTITUTION OF THE STATE OF TEXAS 2006
ARTICLE 1, Sec. 2. INHERENT POLITICAL POWER; REPUBLICAN FORM OF GOVERNMENT. All political power is inherent in the people, and all free governments are founded on their authority, and instituted for their benefit. The faith of the people of Texas stands pledged to the preservation of a republican form of government, and, subject to this limitation only, they have at all times the inalienable right to alter, reform or abolish their government in such manner as they may think expedient.
To explain in greater detail this fundamental area of questions by applicants we list the following:
In March of 2000 A.D. we had our first Constitution Convention in Texas as the Southern Party in New Braunfels. We soon had several other Constitutional Conventions aimed at truly doing something Confederate and not just something political. The Federation of States was established on July 4, 2000 between the State Chairmen of Texas and Arkansas.
The next Constitutional Convention in the summer of 2000 A.D. in Birmingham, Alabama where Mississippi and Florida joined in. At a Continental Convention in Jackson, Mississippi the summer of 2001, seven States participated as delegates and the Constitutional Court was created for the purpose of preparing updates for the 1861 CSA Constitution to be presented to the Senate of the yet to be resurrected CSA Government. The Court is authorized to have 3 – 9 Justices who were Chairmen, Registrars or Governors of the various States) with original jurisdiction over the CSA Constitution and the meaning of the passages therein. The various States elect these Justices who serve until their State service is over. The Court was also given the responsibility to lead the way into the resurrection of the Government by developing and initiating plans for that purpose also called the Restoration. Once the re-staffing occurs the Supreme Court Justices will be selected, sworn in and seated, but the Justices thereof will not serve beyond 17 years (Not for life) and the even after the organization of the CSA Supreme Court, the Constitutional Court will maintain original jurisdiction over the CSA Constitution.

Nathan Jesse Blue Forrest was elected as Chief Justice. He is the great great grandson of Nathan Bedford Forrest.* * *
On November 1, 2004, the Constitutional Court Ordered the Restoration of the governments of the Confederate States of America by the Creation of the Office of Registration, as a Committee of the Court, to be headed by Vance J. Beaudreau for the purpose of producing a Confederacy wide Voter�s Registration Drive to enlist C.S.A. Registered Citizens for the purpose of the Restoration of the Government of the Confederate States of America.
The same day, the Constitutional Court Ordered the Creation of the (CIB) Confederate Intelligence Bureau as a Committee of the Court, to be headed by J. R. Griffen, as Director.On September 8, 2005, the Constitutional Court Ordered the Creation of the C.S.A. Council as a voting committee made up on Registrars serving under the Office of Registration in order to establish policy Confederacy wide and to serve as a check on the Treasury in regards to funds to be authorized for expenses.On March 4, 2006, the Constitutional Court Ordered the re-staffing of the Treasury Department of the Confederate States of America pursuant to Act 25 passed by the C.S.A. Congress on February 21, 1861 and Ordered the establishment of a Debenture program authorizing a new issue of $300,000.00, #11200 series, of 36 month Debentures be established by the Treasury Department for sale only to C.S.A. Registered Citizens in accordance with
Act # 134 passed by the Confederate Congress on May 16, 1861.Note: First is the enlistment of C.S.A. Registered Citizens. Next is each Confederate State to hold Constitutional Conventions to re-staff the key dormant government offices and elect delegates for the planned National Constitutional Convention of Confederate States. This third step shall be to re-establish the C.S.A. Constitution of 1861. Then the State Delegates will be sworn in as Senators establishing the Legislative Branch and they will elect a President and Vice President forming the Executive Branch of Government.
We understand that the Courts are not to legislate as that is the job of the Legislature. It is agreed that Courts, including Supreme Courts, are not to legislate. However the Courts have and do legislate in the Federal Union using the fraud of building upon case law. Case law shall be banned in the Courts of the Confederacy and each case must be decided anew on the merits, evidence and law at the time by a true jury of peers. It is not the job for the Legislature of the United States to legislate anything in or for the territory of the Confederate States of America or involving Confederate Citizens living therein except perhaps a peace treaty. They otherwise lack jurisdiction.
The Constitutional Court is not legislating in preparing updating propositions for the Constitution of the Confederate States of America of 1861. Such proposals shall be presented to the Senate at the National Convention for their consideration for certification for the ratification process or for rejection or change. That is the job of the Legislature. Also, the Constitutional Court is not legislation when it appoints Court Committees to carry out certain functions of the Court or of the government previously approved in general by the Confederate Congress of 1861-1865 during the interim phase of re-staffing or in polling the C.S.A. Council for policy matters or for an interim oversight of the Treasury.
Note: The CSA Constitution of 1861 authorizes a Supreme Court. But, due to the war, time did not allow the nomination of Justices and the court never got organized, leaving the State Courts to carry the burden. In the future the CSA certainly shall organize its Supreme Court, but that Court will have only supportive jurisdiction over the Constitution of the C.S.A. since the Constitutional Court (the justices of which shall be by election by the C.S.A. Governors Council) and not the President nor the Congress. This is a new check and balance against centralization.
Court Committees. The Constitutional Court is operating an interim national government during the re-staffing restoration phase of this effort. Court Committees are not to legislate, but may enforce prior legislation or work to determine proposals for the legislature once it has been re-staffed. Most Court Committees will be dissolved once a cabinet is established in the Executive Branch and at least a Senate is seated. At that time, the Constitutional Court will retire from active direction and become simply the repository and guardian of the Constitution of the Confederate States of America and shall have jurisdiction to define the meaning of certain phrases if the questions should arise in a lower court.
However, the Constitutional Court will not actually try cases once the Supreme Court is seated along with a few inferior appellate circuits to solve interstate cases which are not otherwise handled by special tribunals of three State Supreme Court Justices worked out by the States with interstate questions. The Justices of the Constitutional Court shall themselves be Governors of States and are elected to serve on the Court by the Council of Governors which, at present, is the C.S.A. Council made up of State Chairmen, Registrars or Governors and eventually only Governors as the C.S.A. Council becomes 100% Governors instead of Registrars.
What does their (U.S.) Congress say about our Court�s Opinion? We are not aware that the Congress of the United States has said anything about the Opinions of the Constitutional Court concerning their lack of jurisdiction in the confederacy. We don�t expect them to agree nor do we care at this juncture. It is not yet time.
U.S. Congress today is Executive Branch Congress. When the several States seceded from the Union, it became impossible for the U. S. Congress to achieve a Constitutional Quorum, thus all they could do was adjourn which does not require a Quorum and they Adjourned, Sine Di which means without a date for their return. They were locked out from accomplishing anything without a quorum. Lincoln ordered them back into a special session and ordered them to adjust the quorum accordingly, a Constitutional Change done without ratification. Thus, the returning Congress were no longer a Constitutional Legislature, but an Executive Branch Congress. Nothing has changed to correct this loss of that separation of power. No wonder Congress does what the Administration wants while appearing to argue over the details.
The C.S.A. is not interested in overthrowing the Government of the U.S. or the Corporation thereof. We are not interested in invading, attacking or conquering any State of the U.S. or for that matter any other country like Canada, Mexico, or Cuba. We are only interested in that Territory that was claimed by the CSA 1861-1865 which includes much territory that was not yet partitioned as States at that time. We do claim most of that old territory and re-staffing the existing governmental offices of those Confederate States and Territories for liberation from occupation does not constitute an attack upon the United States (Federal Union), but is our right to be free from foreign occupation. We believe this can be done without bloodshed; there was certainly more than enough of that 145 – 140 years ago. We hope and plan for friendship with the United States as good trading neighbors.
Secession. The various States and Territories who seceded from the Union in 1860-1861 need not do that again since they have already seceded and have never themselves un-seceded nor did they voluntarily re-join the Union after 1865. If some Northern State decides to secede from the Union in our time and does so, then they could apply to our Congress once it is re-staffed for C.S.A. Statehood and that would not be an attack upon the United States because such seceding State would have severed their ties with the Federal Union on their own and without our involvement. Vermont is trying to secede now, but most of us would not care to accept them as a State of the Confederacy and the same goes for Alaska and Hawaii for geographic as well as governmental philosophies of the people in those states.
Jurisdiction. Legally, the United States has no jurisdiction in the Confederacy over our territory or our people and they know it. The people of the South have dominion (Jurisdiction) over their homes and territory. But the Federal Union doesn’t care and ignores issue since they substitute raw power of guns, bayonets, handcuffs, their kangaroo courts and their prisons for their lack of jurisdiction. And since we have no peace treaty with them, a legal state of war technically still exists. The attack upon the Davidians in Waco, Texas by the Federal Union was an indication of the continuation of that executive order state of war of Lincoln �s Acclamation (Declaration).
What about Competing Governmental options for the South? Were this a mere political election option it would be expected to have other groups claiming to be the political movement of the South vying to run the government of the United States. In other words, if those other groups of Southern Heritage Confederates, including some Northerners, were offering a political party such as, for example, Confederacy of Southern States, and offering a slate of candidates in U. S. elections according to Federal Union laws, then that could be deemed acceptable. But, would not such an effort patronize the hopelessly corrupt system of the United States, which is considered by many to be a collapsing Empire, be futile? The American Party of George Wallace was a classic but failed attempt to repair the body politic Dixie style.
However, understanding that legally the Federal Union is still technically at war with the Confederate States of America whose government refused to surrender and who is still legally in existence and in interim operation today built upon the Constitution of the CSA of 1861 and the Statutes of the CSA Congress, it seems to us to be a treasonous step for a group to attempt to dislodge the true government of our Confederate Nation and turn their backs on the 200,000 Confederate veterans who were killed and well over 500,000 who were injured and disabled defending our State�s Rights Nation. To end the further re-staffing Restoration of the Confederate States of America and offer another top down centralized government to the South would be to turn our backs on the dream of our forefathers for a State�s Rights Confederacy of the United States of America and then later of the Confederate States of America.
Disregarding the opinions of Yankee antagonists, how is it not treason for people in the South who consider themselves to be Confederates, to involve themselves in seditionist movements against the restoration of their own beloved CSA Nation and government? It has been observed that such other groups have aims which are not really Confederate or State�s Rights in nature, but are rather Monarchal, as sort of a Corporatist/Socialist Centralized State from the top down with Southern heritage and even some racist overtones.
There are those who plead that we unite with these other groups to gain liberation using our combined power and then settle our internal differences. Ah, but we see the results of such thinking from the cold war with the U.S.S.R. who we should have fought rather than being allies with them. We see the results of such perversion of purpose to gain our goals of liberation by appeasement wherein the end justifies the means. We see the unhealthy combination of subversion that would result with such appeasement and perversion that would ultimately destroy us and the dream of our forefathers of 1776. We would gain for ourselves anarchy and a situation not unlike Palestine today (between Hamas and the Fatah Party) which would open the door for easy conquest of our disunified Nation by the banksters of the world and their armies.
More to the point, a struggle existed early in the history of the United States (1776-1781) between the Loyalists (to the King) and the Franklin/McKean/Jeffersonians seeking independence which then became, after 1781, a struggle between Federal Centralists (including former Loyalists and Tories) of Alexander Hamilton�s vintage and the Jeffersonian (anti-federalists) independence minded men seeking representative republics bound together in a Confederacy.
The Lincoln war of aggression against the CSA was classic Centralist Unionists versus Jeffersonian State�s Rights/Constitutional anti-Federalism. Karl Marx and Frederick Engels heavily supported Lincoln against the Confederacy. During reconstruction we found that the classic Unionist Yankees were really semi-monarchal centralists trying to stamp out the remaining vestiges of Confederate anti-federalists and that is still the battle today with the Federal Reserve and the Bank of England backing the Unionists of the Federal Union.
Suppose we were able to gain liberation from the Federal Union only to find ourselves establishing, perhaps in Birmingham or Montgomery, nearly the same thing as exists in Washington, D.C. only with a Southern fling. Are any of you willing to settle for that? Is that not jumping out of the frying pan into the fire, thereby failing to achieve real freedom and State�s Rights for our posterity? Stick with the real thing, the true government anti-federalist State�s Rights government of the Confederate States of America. Learn more about Constitutional Convention authority under which we have authority to re-staff as we are doing.
We would rather simply let history take its course with the defunct United States and live and spend more time with our families rather than to spend our time, money, sweat and maybe blood in an effort to create another Washington, D.C. type government simply with a Southern style to it, but based upon top down centralization which is not Confederate at all.
As a final note on this, we have cooperated with several groups of Confederate minded organizations and have invited them and their members to become C.S.A. Registered Citizens so that they can vote and be a major part of the resurrection of a more completely re-staffed government of the Confederate States of America. Several such groups have done this and are in virtual control in their respective States, to our delight. In their own State�s Constitutional Conventions they will be able to largely shape their State Confederate government and its officers. In this fashion, we welcome assistance from other groups seeking the same type of government as we are.
Dictatorship. This is the hallmark of any dictatorship, and in the case of the Federal Union, they are a Fascistic (corporatist) government with strong dosages of Socialism for the people and the illusion that they are a Democracy (mobocracy), but we know that the so-called “Democracy” is ruled by a dictatorship of the Proletariat behind the thrown of the Executive Branch and the Executive Branch Congress and Supreme Court.
Revolution of Abraham Lincoln. Really, the Federal Union, established out of the Marxist assisted Revolution of Abraham Lincoln, is a National Socialist government absent the racial purity aspects and absent any anti-Jewish aspects and the only racial hatred that is allowed is against the White European Americans who are now a minority. (Lincoln was a strong supporter of Karl Marx in 1848 and supported his attempt to overthrow the German government.) To sum it up, the U. S. is a government of the corporations, by the corporations and for the corporations with socialism to control the people who think they elect the government and believe they have a constitution. The hapless American people have only privileges allowed by U.S.A. CORP. as controlled by the Bank of England. Ever notice has the Declaration of Independence of 1776 fit so well against the Federal Union today? The same British system of control is in effect via U.S.A. CORP.
Hitler. A man desiring C.S.A. Citizenship called from Fargo, N. Dakota (A Yankee Territory and now a Yankee State). This fellow mentioned that he had read in Mein Kampf some years ago that Hitler had attacked the provincial governments in Germany stripping them of their local control and power and centralizing that power in Berlin. Nazism is diametrically opposed to a Confederacy of State Republics being top down control rather than bottom up from the people in a State Republic.
The Fargo, N. Dakota applicant will have to come in by virtue of his residency for at least 6 months in the South. As long as the Fargo guy lives outside of the Confederacy he will have no place to vote as a citizen, but should he move to a Confederate State or Territory he msut then advise us of his new address and he will be able to vote in that State or Territory.
About words. Federalism in the late 1700′s was the idea of a loose union of Sovereign State Republics or Commonwealths that maintained most of their State’s rights. To the Hamiltonians, however, it meant Centralization at the expense of State’s Rights, a typical political trick to claim to be for something to fool the populous only to betray them later. Today Federalism essentially equals Centralization in meaning and just the opposite of the position of Thomas Jefferson. When one thinks of Federalism today they think of the Federal government and its abuse of power.
National CSA Headquarters? That is a matter to be decided by the Senate of the C.S.A. I oppose Richmond as being too close to Washington, D.C. and being too far geographically from much of the territory of the Confederacy. Montgomery, Alabama was historically involved in the initial creation of the Confederate States of America out of a 7 State Constitutional Convention of States who had issued documents of secession which included Texas. But Birmingham, Alabama or Jackson, Mississippi or even Memphis, Tennessee would be contenders and better choices geographically as being more centrally located. Our National Constitutional Convention will be in Southaven, Mississippi and is projected for sometime in 2008 providing we have at least 7 States that have held their State Constitutional Conventions (of C.S.A. Registered Citizens voting with their portion of the Gideon number set as a quorum present).
Work for the Restoration of the CSA via the Voter�s Registration Drive to enlist new C.S.A. Registered Citizens to participate in the upcoming State Constitutional Conventions. This is from the bottom up and not from the top down organization in true Confederate fashion.
