UPDATE, Sunday, July 15: The Southern Poverty Law Center, which tracks extremist organizations in the United States, has a lengthy article about how the Republic for the united States of America is “plagued by criminality.” That includes tax evasion, FBI domestic terrorism investigations, and deadly clashes with law enforcement.
ORIGINAL POST: In case you missed the news yesterday, Randi Shannon, the Republican who was challenging incumbent Democratic state Sen. Liz Mathis in Linn County, has dropped out of the race in order to — what else? — accept a position as a senator of the Republic for Iowa.
In her drop-out letter, Shannon explained, “I have become aware of the existence of the Original Republic for The United States of America,” of which the Republic for Iowa is a part (read the letter in full at the end of this post). She went on:
“We the People” re-inhabited our lawful de jure (de jur- “by right of lawful establishment”) government on March 30th, 2010. This is The Republic founded in 1787 and then abandoned during The Civil War in the 1860s.
It was then replaced in 1871 by the UNITED STATES CORPORATION. (de facto-without law). This Unlawful Corporate Democracy, established by the forty-first congress, has been acting as though it is the “official government” which clearly it is not! In point of fact, it is the reason why “We the People” Instead of Experiencing Freedom and Prosperity, suffer under the weight of Oppressive Statutes and an Out of Control, Monstrous National Debt which is Robbing Us and All Future Generations of Americans of Our Treasure and Our Legacy for which Our Founding Fathers’ so Valiantly Fought and Died.
And Remember This! Where the de jure Republic of The United States of America exists the de facto UNITED STATES CORPORATION, having no standing, must go away!
Find that confusing? This guy will clear things up for you:
Shannon thanked those who supported her bid for the state Senate seat, among them her “fellow Ron Paul for President Supporters, My Fellow Members of Liberty, My Friends who home school as did I,” and “the many Pro-Life Members who have been so supportive of my candidacy over these past few months.”
According to what she told Marion Patch, Shannon will be one of two senators of the Republic for Iowa, serving alongside four House members, one judge, and an unspecified number of “American rangers” who police the Republic. As Shannon explained, the rangers have the constitutional authority to make Iowa police comply with their demands. “I do believe that they would listen” to the rangers, she told Patch, “because they know the law.”
Her opponent Mathis, a former TV news anchor, was elected last November in a special election for Senate District 18. If Mathis had lost that high-stakes race, the Democrats’ 26-24 majority in the Senate would have been tied, allowing Republicans to push ahead with legislative initiatives like a gay marriage ban that Democrats have been blocking (Republicans control the House and, of course, governor’s office). But Mathis defeated Republican Cindi Golding by a comfortable 56 to 44 percent.
Because of redistricting, Mathis is running for reelection in the more favorable Senate District 34. So, as Republicans scramble to find a new challenger, Mathis must be feeling pretty good about her prospects right now.
