Admiralty Law (1845)


Understanding Admiralty Law

Understanding law and the words of the law are two things that this planet has water and Earth or water and land. Consequently, there are two forms of law, law of the land and a law of the water. Law of the land means just that, it's law of the land and that is opposed to the law of the Seas or the law of the water. Law of the land is a law of that culture that lives on that land. That's why the law of the land is different in every country. However, there is a higher law that dominates the world. It's called The Law of the water or the law of the high seas. The law of water is also referred to as the law of money. It doesn't matter what color you are or where you live, money is money. Anytime you do any kind of banking, you are now under the law of the water; maritime admiralty.

If you go back in ancient history when all of this began back in the land of Canaan, the Canaanites were Phoenician. In the ancient Phoenician language Cana meant Merchant Banker. The very word Merchant comes from "mer" for the sea or for the water, as in "mer"maid or as in "mer"chant.

The difference between the laws of the sea and land

Here's the difference between the law of the land and the law of the sea. The law of the sea is the law of banking. The law of the land is the law of the customs of the people living on that land.

The Statue of Liberty must be put in water. It could not be put on American land. It had to be put in the harbor because it is not the Statue of Freedom, it is the Statue of Liberty. Liberty is what a sailor gets when he pulls into port on his ship; he gets liberty he does not get freedom.

Play of Words

Why is it that you have to go to court? You play basketball on a court, don't you? What's the goal in playing basketball? To put the ball in the other guy's court. That's essentially what the prosecutor and defense do. They throw the ball back into each other's court. The court is nothing more than a ballgame. The judge wears a black robe and therefore is the referee. He doesn't care which side wins or loses because he's going to get paid anyway.

This where the "play of words" comes in that I have always told you about. I'm going to give you a few examples here.

We are told that the judge rules from the "bench." The word bench means a bank in Latin. Therefore the judge rules for the bank. Where do you find banks? You find banks on either side of a river. They are called river banks and what does a river bank do? It controls the flow of "current"(cy). Your money is "current"(cy) because it is the cash flow.

Another example of a play on words is all ships are considered female; airships, rocket ships and sailing ships. There's a very good reason why they are all referred to as female. Maritime admiralty banking law says all ships are female because they are carrying items of and for money and this puts them under admiralty/maritime law. 

Admiralty and Ships

Admiralty is where we get the word Admiral such as Admiral of the Navy. When a ship pulls into harbor it parks at the dock and it ties off of the dock. The captain has to provide the Port Authorities a certificate of manifest because yesterday the ship was not here and today it is. Therefore it has manifested. All of those items came off of a ship which sits in the water and is, therefore, admiralty maritime products and every ship has a captain. The word Captain comes from a Latin word called "capital." So the captain represents the money that is on board his ship. So when a ship is moored to the pier, it is at its "berth." She sits in her berth. This holds true all over the world. 

Admiralty and your birth

Now when you were born your mother's water broke. When your mother's water broke you came out. This is why you have to have a "birth" certificate. It is the equivalent to a certificate of manifest because you are an admiralty maritime product under international law. Your mother delivered you. For example, this is why when you order a refrigerator they "ship" it to you or they will "deliver" it. You were in your "delivery" room. Your mother was delivering a product. Under admiralty/maritime law, you came down your mother's birth "canal."

Sometimes, while a ship is at its "berth," and being unloaded a product might break just like sometimes a mother might give "birth" to a stillborn. If this happens and that means you've lost money on that one and therefore you need a death certificate. If you lose product on the pier it is signed by the "Dock." If you have a stillborn, it is signed by the "Doc"(tor). The "Doc"(tor) signs your birth and your death certificate just like the Port Authorities do for a ship.

All of these words and terms are admiralty Maritime banking laws. Therefore if you understand lawyers, judges, courts, and government, they are all under International Maritime admiralty law. All religions all churches in the world operate under the maritime law. This is why churches are divided into denominations like 20s, 50s, and 100s. Because churches are nothing more the product of Maritime admiralty banking. 

Yellow fringe on our nation's flag

First, the appearance of our flag is defined in Title 4 sec. 1. U.S.C..

"The flag of the United States shall be thirteen horizontal stripes, alternate red and white; and the union of the flag shall be forty-eight stars, white in a blue field."

(Note - of course when new states are admitted new stars are added.)

A footnote was added on page 1113 of the same section which says:

"Placing of fringe on the national flag, the dimensions of the flag, and arrangement of the stars are matters of detail not controlled by statute, but within the discretion of the President as Commander-In-Chief of the Army and Navy." - 1925, 34 Op.Atty.Gen. 483.

The president as the military commander can add a yellow fringe to our flag. When would this be done? During a time of war. Why? A flag with a fringe is an ensign, a military flag. Read the following.

"Pursuant to U.S.C. Chapter 1, 2, and 3; Executive Order No. 10834, August 21, 1959, 24 F.R. 6865, a military flag is a flag that resembles the regular flag of the United States, except that it has a YELLOW FRINGE, bordered on three sides. The President of the United States designates this deviation from the regular flag, by executive order, and in his capacity as COMMANDER-IN-CHIEF of the Armed forces."

"Pursuant to the "Law of the Flag", a military flag does result in jurisdictional implication when flown. "Under what is called international law, the law of the flag, a shipowner who sends his vessel into a foreign port gives notice by his flag to all who enter into contracts with the shipmaster that he intends the law of the flag to regulate those contracts with the shipmaster that he either submit to its operation or not contract with him or his agent at all." - Ruhstrat v. People, 57 N.E. 41, 45, 185 ILL. 133, 49 LRA 181, 76 AM.

When you walk into a court and see this flag you are put on notice that you are in an Admiralty Court and that the king is in control. Also, if there is a king the people are no longer sovereign. Admiralty law is for the sea, maritime law governs contracts between parties that trade over the sea. Well, that's what our forefathers intended. However, in 1845 Congress passed an act saying Admiralty law could come on land. The bill may be traced in Cong. Globe, 28th Cong., 2d. Sess. 43, 320, 328, 337, 345(1844-45), no opposition to the Act is reported.

It was up to the Supreme Court to stop Congress and say NO! The Constitution did not give you that power, nor was it intended. But no, the courts began a long train of abuses.

Court Cases

The Great Force

In 1845 Congress passed an act saying Admiralty law could come on land. The bill may be traced in Cong. Globe, 28th Cong., 2d. Sess. 43, 320, 328, 337, 345(1844-45), no opposition to the Act is reported. Congress held a committee on this subject in 1850 and they said:

"The committee also alluded to "the great force" of "the great constitutional question as to the power of Congress to extend maritime jurisdiction beyond the ground occupied by it at the adoption of the Constitution...." 

- Ibid. H.R. Rep. No. 72 31st Cong., 1st Sess. 2 (1850)

So Began a Long Train of Abuses

"This power is as extensive upon land as upon water. The Constitution makes no distinction in that respect. And if the admiralty jurisdiction, in matters of contract and tort which the courts of the United States may lawfully exercise on the high seas, can be extended to the lakes under the power to regulate commerce, it can with the same propriety and upon the same construction, be extended to contracts and torts on land when the commerce is between different States. And it may embrace also the vehicles and persons engaged in carrying it on (my note - remember what the law of the flag said when you receive benefits from the king.) It would be in the power of Congress to confer admiralty jurisdiction upon its courts, over the cars engaged in transporting passengers or merchandise from one State to another, and over the persons engaged in conducting them, and deny to the parties the trial by jury. Now the judicial power in cases of admiralty and maritime jurisdiction, has never been supposed to extend to contracts made on land and to be executed on land. But if the power of regulating commerce can be made the foundation of jurisdiction in its courts, and a new and extended admiralty jurisdiction beyond its heretofore known and admitted limits, may be created on water under that authority, the same reason would justify the same exercise of power on land." 

- Propeller Genessee Chief et al. v. Fitzhugh et al. 12 How. 443 (U.S. 1851)

John Adams on his State's Constitution

"Next to revenue (taxes) itself, the late extensions of the jurisdiction of the admiralty are our greatest grievance. The American Courts of Admiralty seem to be forming by degrees into a system that is to overturn our Constitution and to deprive us of our best inheritance, the laws of the land. It would be thought in England a dangerous innovation if the trial, of any matter on land was given to the admiralty." 

- Jackson v. Magnolia, 20 How. 296 315, 342 (U.S. 1852) 

"...[T]he United States may acquire territory by conquest or by treaty, and may govern it through the exercise of the power of Congress conferred by Section 3 of Article IV of the Constitution..." "In exercising this power, Congress is not subject to the same constitutional limitations, as when it is legislating for the United States. ...And in general the guaranties of the Constitution, save as they are limitations upon the exercise of executive and legislative power when exerted for or over our insular possessions, extend to them only as Congress, in the exercise of its legislative power over territory belonging to the United States, has made those guarantees applicable." 

- Hooven & Allison & Co. vs Evatt, 324 U.S. 652 (1945) 

"I take leave to say that if the principles thus announced should ever receive the sanction of a majority of this court, a radical and mischievous change in our system of government will be the result. We will, in that event, pass from the era of constitutional liberty guarded and protected by a written constitution into an era of legislative absolutism."

"It will be an evil day for American liberty if the theory of a government outside of the supreme law of the land finds lodgment in our constitutional jurisprudence. No higher duty rests upon this court than to exert its full authority to prevent all violation of the principles of the constitution." 

- Downes vs Bidwell, 182 U.S. 244 (1901)

"It is only with the extent of powers possessed by the district courts, acting as instance courts of admiralty, we are dealing. The Act of 1789 gives the entire constitutional power to determine " all civil causes of admiralty and maritime jurisdiction," leaving the courts to ascertain its limits, as cases may arise."
