CASE 036 - US Corporation 1868
First: There was the Trust, it had no named Title but within its own first paragraph it named itself the, "Constitution for the United States of America". Remember this document is a Trust document; It created a Trust called the "United States of America". This document was accepted and signed by all of the Conventioneers. The signed Trust document (Constitution) created a government. There was nobody sitting in the seats of that government, and there wouldn't be until such time as the individual States ratified the Constitution and the Conventioneers appointed people into the offices.
Second: The Trust was sent out for ratification of the individual States.
Third: The individual States declined for a conditional reason which when resolved would make the Trust acceptable.
Fourth: The Constitutional Convention again sat and generated the Bill of Rights (a set of supreme laws that limit government). The wording of the Bill recognized it as "Articles in addition to, and Amendment of the Constitution of the United States of America". Presupposing that the Constitution [Trust] already exists. The Constitution was a trust document that created a republican form of government in trust of, by, and for the people. Note: They did not regenerate the Constitution it was already signed and accepted by each of the State's representatives as the Trust that it is.
Fifth: The individual States were given the Constitution as before along with the new "Bill of Rights" and all accepted and ratified the documents.
Sixth: With the ratification of the Trust and its "Bill of Rights", the government was accepted as formed, in trust, yet still, there were no officers in the seats of the government. [It's very important for us to notice this status of the government.**]
Seventh The Constitutional Convention again sat to perform their final acts as the Creator of the Trust. They appointed officials to sit in the primary seats of the newly formed Constitutional Republic and serve until an election was held.
Eighth: Those officials now appointed could not take office until they each individually first swore an Oath of Office stating they would uphold the, Constitution of the United States of America. Again please note the name used in the Bill of Rights and now used for this "contract" by Oath to uphold the: Constitution of the United States of America, not, "for the united", but "of the United". Note: It's important to note here that we are indeed talking about two different documents. The First, the, Constitution for the United States of America, is a Trust and the Second, the, Constitution of the United States of America, is a contract between the officers of government and the beneficiaries of the Trust.
After the Constitution was in place, and elections were held ratifying George Washington as President things went fairly well until the Civil War. By 1868 the war was over and the government had a gigantic problem. Until that time Congressmen were equally, collectively and severably liable for the acts of government. It was much like a General Partnership. In the wake of the war martial law was necessarily enforced in the South and carpetbaggers were sent down to "help adjust property ownership problems" after the war. Many great atrocities were performed. Vulnerability to lawsuit was unbearable. It was considered that, in the interest of better handling the business interests and needs of government, the government should form a corporation.
US Corp. 1868
The United States of America's Congress formed a private corporation named, "The District of Columbia" (US Corp. 1868) in, The District of Columbia Organic Act of 1871. The purpose of this corporation was to carry out the business needs of the government under the martial law aftermath of the Civil War. It trademarked the names: "United States Government", "United States", "U.S.", "U.S.A.", "USA", and "America". The corporation was not well received by the people and by the end of 1873, it was nearly defunct. The corporation was reorganized in 1878 along with its trademarks. Corp. USA began issuing bonds to cover the expenses of running government. They continued to issue these bonds until by 1912 there were more bonds due than there was money in the Treasury to pay for the bonds. Seven very powerful families had been buying up the bonds and in 1912 they demanded their timely redemption. When Corp. U.S. couldn't come up with the money due, its owner was obligated to pay. The Treasury of the United States of America did not have sufficient funds to cover the bonds either and to satisfy the obligations the seven families seized the Treasury with all of its possessions. By 1913 there was still no money for operating the government/corporation, and if Corp. U.S. didn't do something the people would revolt against them, so Corp. U.S. went to those seven very powerful families and asked if they could borrow money from them. The the federal reserve was set up - read CASES 001 - The banking system
