NLA and the Sovereign Citizen Movement

"All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing." -- Edmund Burke

NLA was founded on Christian principles. Through much research we discovered that in fact most of our founding fathers were pious Godly men practicing the principles of the Bible. We also discovered that Common Law was established about 1450BC by God Himself and blessed ancient Israel (Interpreted in the Bible as the Son of God, Exodus 4: 22-23) with His law. As William Penn put it "Men must be governed by God or they will be ruled by tyrants." It was Thomas Jefferson who rediscovered the roots of Common Law and a government ruled by God through Gods People. From that discovery we have the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution for the United States of America and the Bill of Rights which are common law documents. Our founders were in one accord on this issue and it was upon this foundation that America was built.

Our research that proves these facts can be found in the following books, to name a few: The Real Thomas Jefferson by Andrew M. Allison, The Real George Washington by Jay A Parry and Andrew M. Allison, The Real Benjamin Franklin by Andrew M. Allison, 5000 Year Leap by W. Cleon Skousen, The Making of America by W. Cleon Skousen (these books can be found at, Excellence of the Common Law by Brent Winters (found at, and the Holy Bible by God the Creator and Governor of the universe.

With this knowledge and the principles of Honor, Justice and Mercy and by God’s mercy NLA was formed declaring that "Only the People can Save America" and teaching that We the People have lost our way and we need to rediscover that way through education and the guidance of His Word and His mercy. Thomas Jefferson said: "If a People expect to be ignorant and free they expect what never was and never will be".

Holding the aforesaid principles and teachings, coupled with the determination of the “powers that be” it is no surprise to We the People of NLA that we would be assaulted and great efforts would be taken to subvert our cause and say all manner of evil against us (Matthew 5:10-12). Therefore we pay no heed and stand on our reputation, our work, our words and time will prove us. Therefore we hold the position that Jefferson took which is to ignore the verbal assaults. For, responding to their lies and half-truths only serves as a platform for their embellishment.

The mission and purpose of National Liberty Alliance is to provide an on line National Venue where the People can organize, communicate, and learn the “science of government by consent” to take back our Republic at the grassroots level. NLA is assisting grassroots to organize County Committees of Safety (COS) with a well-defined in-process plan to take back control of our judicial and political process; as well as returning a real education to our children who are presently being indoctrinated in socialism. For more information on COS, go to

As the swamp is drained and power removed from the deep-state a vacuum will occur and if We the People do not educate ourselves and fill these positions of power our servants will, and it will only be a matter of time before we find ourselves back under tyranny again. President Trump said; “In America, the people govern, the people rule, and the people are sovereign. I was elected not to take power, but to give power to the American people, where it belongs;”

While it is true that President Trump is doing an amazing job dismantling the evil works of the Deep State and its New World Order steering it, this is not a time to return to complacency because “Only We the People can save our Republic.” Without the support of the People behind President Trump he cannot be successful. Furthermore we cannot have “Liberty and Justice for All” without having a “Government by Consent” and that requires the sacrifice of some of our time and money. As Thomas Jefferson said; “if a People expect to be ignorant and free they expect what never was and never will be”… and, "we in America do not have government by the majority. We have government by the majority who participate."

NLA is determined to restore the people to sovereignty through knowledge, and only then will they be armed with the virtue to take political and judicial power. The people have it in their power to disarm and defeat the enemy of Liberty both foreign and domestic if they only understood the “Common Law” and know how to exercise “Government by Consent.”

We the People need to take political power, without the politicking, away from the Republican and Democratic parties. We realize that most People think this is impossible. But, let me assure you that it is possible, if you are interested on how, start by watching the video on NLA’s front page titled, “Seminar on Government by Consent” recorded on 12-18-2021” and then read our Instructional Handbooks found under the “Committee of Safety” tab and join our “Weekly Call.”

We also need to take control of our courts by understanding Common Law and through that understanding we will be empowered to take back our courts and put judges back under the “Chains of the Constitution.”

But, to successfully apply political and judicial power, we must proceed with a sense of honor, justice, and mercy which is synonymous with virtue. And to get virtue, we need to have a relationship with our Creator. If everyone exercised these principles, America could shake off the chains of tyranny, reinstate our Republic, and bring down the “New World Order,” literally overnight! This is the only way to save the nation. Without power we are powerless!!!

We are Non Partisan - A partisan person is “one who is blindly or unreasonably devoted to party positions.” Therefore a partisan cannot possibly serve the constitution. George Washington warned us against political parties. He said, “They only succeed in pitting one group against another.” Political parties must go if we are going to save our Republic.

The cause of the grassroots movement is the awakening to our constitutional crisis, for it to be engaged in partisan politics would further serve the demise of our constitutional republic. The genius of the progressive movement is its exploitation of partisan politics, which they created, to subvert our constitutions. Grassroots groups are natural and spontaneous whose primary objective is to reinstate the constitution, to be partisan would be counterproductive.

Traditional power structures are orchestrated and designed to harness grassroots movements “they must always be suspect” and will be proven corrupt if they are partisan - divisive – and take control of choosing candidates. Grassroots are founded local, control is local and most events are local. To collaborate with distant groups is necessary for unity but if events become dictated by a national organization, you are no longer grassroots! The county COS “Committee of Correspondence” will unite the counties within a state or unite the states in order to collaborate on state and national issues. NLA will “never” dictate to the COS. NLA is only a facilitator for education, organization, communication, and council! United we stand divided we fall!

The Sovereign Citizen Movement

NLA does not endorse or entertain the “Sovereign Citizen Movement” strategies such as “bills of exchange,” “redeeming and/or discharging through trust accounts;” nor do we involve ourselves with “contracts,” “commercial liens” and the “exchanging of an oath of office for a value.” We do not encourage or teach people to “write declarations,” “drive without driver's licenses,” “revoke their voters application,” “revoke their birth certificate” or their “social security numbers.”

We do not support the State Jural Assemblies which are recruiting people who have been poisoned by the aforesaid strategies. They are a collection of quasi-shadow state governments that essentially advocate the overthrowing of the United States Federal and States governments. They believe that our Constitution needs to be rewritten. They are made up of “self-appointed judges” “self-appointed Post Master Generals,” “self-appointed marshals,” “self-appointed governors.” They also claim to be working with “international courts.”

18 USC §2385 - Advocating overthrow of Government – Whoever knowingly or willfully advocates, abets, advises, or teaches the duty, necessity, desirability, or propriety of overthrowing or destroying the government of the United States or the government of any State, Territory, District or Possession thereof,

18 USC §2384 - Seditious conspiracy - If two or more persons in any State or Territory, or in any place subject to the jurisdiction of the United States, conspire to overthrow, put down, or to destroy by force the Government of the United States, or to levy war against them, or to oppose by force the authority thereof, or by force to prevent, hinder, or delay the execution of any law of the United States, or by force to seize, take, or possess any property of the United States contrary to the authority thereof, they shall each be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than twenty years, or both.

The forces driving the quasi-shadow government movement are pied pipers who are either agent provocateurs or just useful idiots who speak of a new federation and writing another constitution and thereby are putting many good liberty-minded People, who are desperately seeking a solution to save America, in jeopardy.

There are many people on the internet teaching the aforesaid and many following them are finding themselves in trouble with the law and some in jail.  I personally know of about a half a dozen People who ended up in jail and at least one of them died in jail because they had health issues and did not receive proper care in federal prison. Trying to remove yourself from their polluted system and at the same time trying to profit through “bills of exchange,” “redeeming and/or discharging through trust accounts;” “commercial liens” and “exchanging of an oath of office for a value” is only angering these tyrants and putting yourself on their “terrorist watch list.” And by executing these strategies they become them, because these actions deny them “due process.” Even pirates are offered due process, for when a pirates ship is seized “in rem” they are given 30 days to dispute the seizure, of course they don’t take advantage of the offer of due process because they might find themselves on the end of a short rope.

Some are teaching people to put their finger prints using red ink by their signature in the documents that are being files, which somehow makes their documents official, go figure! Why would anyone want to poke these lawless bureaucrats in the eye and give them your prints thus, making it easy to identify you! These people are taught the prints are a common law way things are done, this is not true. It was the English that first began using fingerprints in 1858, when British magistrate William Herschel observed the Indian custom of inking hands or fingers alongside signatures on contracts. He experimented with hand-prints, but soon realized that only fingers were needed after concluding that a person’s fingerprints do not change over time. Herschel developed the technique further and began the practice of fingerprinting criminals as an administrative tool, without realizing that it could be used to catch criminals. And if you find yourself in court to defend your actions and you think that by clicking your-heals and declaring your declaration that somehow you will be transported into a court of justice and released, you are sadly mistaken.

The BAR teaches Bar Attorneys and the Bar Judges that they had the authority to abrogate the Common Law via the repugnant “Rules Enabling Act” of 1934. It has been my experience that ALL BAR judges and attorneys in an act of high treason have been unwittingly brainwashed to resist the Common Law and replace it with civil law. These statutes created a statutory prison that stifles the spirit of man and legislates man’s behavior thereby the government assumes the character of God.

“The civil lawyer by his tradition and training tends to treat statutes as though they proceed from the gods because bred into civil law systems is the demand that he not look behind the language of the statute in coming to their decision, the Code is supreme; which is to say that legislators are supreme. Adherence to the Code is, by custom, practically blind.”

These BAR attorneys have been indoctrinated to believe that the Common Law has been abrogated and that God’s Law, a/k/a Common Law is no longer applicable. Thereby unwittingly bringing People under the will of tyrants; they have been trained that courts must punish through incarceration all who offend their ten thousand commandments that Justinian brought up from the pit of Babylon.  Justinian’s Code is a code of outlaw focusing all on the will of the state. See chapter 26 - American BAR Association for more information.

Civil law changes with the times, serve agendas, serve governments, demoralize men and are incapable of mercy. Whereas, God’s laws are the same yesterday, today and tomorrow, they serve God, they serve man, they benefit both victim and wrongdoer, they provide for repentance, they consider mercy, build morals and save souls. Whereas, with unconstitutional legislated laws where the facts of a case and intent of the accused is superseded by statutes where one size fits all and can never serve justice. It serves the status quo in order to control the behavior of man so tyrants can rule over them.

It is true that in acts of high treason, under legislation such as the Patriot Act and the creation of the Department of Homeland Security, and many other unlawful acts going back to the “Organic Act of 1871.” We the Sovereign People are under attack by our very own elected and appointed servants. Our very way of life is in jeopardy because of the ignorance of the meaning of words. And most importantly because the People lost the knowledge of self-government and the science of Law without which there can be “No Liberty.”

In treasonous acts and lies the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) Intelligence Report,[1] proclaiming to be the nation’s preeminent periodical monitoring the so called radical right in the United States, is fueling all government agencies and police departments into believing that anyone that uses specific words like militia, sovereign, oath keepers, constitution, patriots and even founding fathers, to name just a few, are armed, radicals and dangerous cop killers, whose names are put on the terrorist watch list. This agitation often causes police to over-react with excessive force and on a few occasions respond by SWAT when these words are used at traffic stops.

Much of the over-reaction that fuels the police comes from that spews forth the lies of the Southern Poverty Law Center to unsuspecting law-enforcement agencies and departments. The SPLC is an arm of the BAR whose purpose is to excite violence by federal agents and police upon We the Sovereign People who are trying to make sense of our out of control federal judiciary and be free.

The fact of the matter is “In United States, sovereignty resides in people. The Congress cannot invoke the sovereign power of the People to override their will...”[2]It will be admitted on all hands that with the exception of the powers granted to the states and the federal government through the Constitutions, the people of the several states are unconditionally sovereign within their respective states.”[3]Supreme sovereignty is in the people - No authority can, on any pretense whatsoever, be exercised over the citizens of this state, but such as is or shall be derived from and granted by the people of this state.[4]Sovereignty itself is, of course, not subject to law, for it is the author and source of law; but in our system, while sovereign powers are delegated to the agencies of government, sovereignty itself remains with the people, by whom and for whom all government exists and acts And the law is the definition and limitation of power…”[5]

Steps Individuals May Take to Declare Their Sovereignty

To declare one’s status as a sovereign citizen, an individual usually takes specific steps to renounce his/her US citizenship. Once these steps have been completed, sovereign citizens believe they will be exempt from civil law and taxes. • An individual must first file documents with the Secretary of State declaring his/her sovereignty. • Documents which are filed to denounce US citizenship include an Act of State, UCC-1, copy of Birth Certificate, and a Social Security Card. Once the receiving office files the documents, an Apostille[6] is generated acknowledging the documents have been correctly filed. Once the sovereign citizen receives the Apostille, they view this as the USG acknowledging their newly acquired sovereign status.

The problem is that the sovereign citizen solution does not work. It accomplishes nothing! The strategy NLA employs is to expose the fraud in court. There is absolutely no problem with our government, its structure and processes. The problem is that unprincipled men have seized control of our government through cover means. They are a worldwide criminal enterprise that has been working behind the scenes for longer than the United States has existed. The world has reached its boiling point and things are about to get dicey.

The only solution to lawlessness is the LAW! Devolution is in play and we are exposing their fraud in the courts by making a record of their felonies and acts of treason. It does not matter if they ignore and bury our pleadings; the record is made and documented in numerous places. And when the Republic is restored the Law will prevail. Meanwhile some judges are intimidated by the truth in our pleadings against the judiciary and sometimes we accomplish a little justice.

Meanwhile the key to success is in educating the People in “Common Law.” Liberty, Justice, and Truth are found in the Law and when enough People receive the Law then it will be restored. Devolution just provides us with the opportunity. And as the People return to “God’s Law” He will bless our endeavor and champion our cause. For God promised that if His People would humble themselves and turn from wickedness he will hear from Heaven and restore the land. Have faith rest in His Law and remember we don’t have government by the majority; we have government by the majority that participates, be a part of the good fight join us right here at

Taking ownership of your birth certificatate and recording your LAND AIR WATER (LAW) docs at the county isnt enough, you have to go through the UCC process. Once I have completed this (hopefully before 2023) I can then post more. I have done AVR and DS processes and they only get you so far. The Gov by consent course here is excellent for learning common law to show up sui juris when necessary. a word to the wise... you cant be a sovereign and a Citizen, Person, or Resident. its an oxymron. One is defined as free the others as a slave of the city. That phrase will also trigger the FBI on you. Better to use "State National" or in my case Californian. Regards, Bryan Tomeo aka SovereignT

An act passed by Congress in 1934 that gave the Supreme Court the power to make rules of procedure and evidence for federal courts as long as they did not “abridge, enlarge, or modify any substantive right.”
What is the substantive-meaning in the legal-ese? Sub- below, stand-Standing, right-privilege.
Therefore the law is for the use by the commercial-relationships bourn of the privilege.

John , 
  Many thanks for the information that you have shared here tody , however there are still a few things that are very unclear . First off how do we halt the theft of our "NAMES/ STRAWMAN" I have done some checking and know for a fact that this is taking place , ( i have 750 countries or foreign peoples trading my ALL CAPS NAME ) being a combat vet this is very disturbing to me , no one should be making money off of my name and I would like it stopped ? Secondly this devolution I have tried to stay on top of as well as those that are living thought deceased and have just this week passed heard the new constitution that was written on 7-4-2020 and its all good but here in my town the corruption knows no bounds and they are running rough shod over all of us and show no signs of letting up or giving a rip . how do we remove these people ? Voting is not going to make these tyrants just give up power they have too much invested to not fight for it and I fear there will be much blood shed , sadly that may be what it takes & they are blood thirsty . I am 1st and foremost a patriot volunteered twice to go to combat and I care not to see it again . Do not want to see my fellow patriots & neighnbors be forced to learn just how "war is hell " for it truly is . I have just completed the administrators course as well as all the others and purchsed your book and will continue to do what I must but it is hard to have faith in a sytem that has wronged us our entire lives thus far I will war if need be just as the millions of like minded vets in our beautiful country because enuff is enuff ! thanks Kenith (Doc) Preston
