BREAKING: “WHY THE SECRETARY OF THE TREASURY HAD TO RESIGN.”
What we have here is a clear and concise path of action by our elected and civil servants (you know, the ones WE employ). Below you ill find a long read by a true American who has dedicated his life, freedom, and fortune to try to continue the ideals this country was founded upon. What he has received for his efforts has been abuse, unlawful activities, intimidation, and emotional trauma. Read and save this information – I doubt his writings will be “allowed” to stay on the net for much longer.
After digesting the story, you will see why the Secretary had to resign; he was NOT following orders.
You are NOT allowed to detach the battery cables.
You are NOT allowed to question the deceptive practices of the financial/money cabal.
You must submit to the new order of things – global domination and the prison planet it has constructed.
OR, so they think... I believe something else is happening; a GREAT awakening.
THE clock is ticking; what will it take to get the masses to awaken? Your freedom is expensive, and the price for keeping it comes down to hard work, education (more hard work), and the longing for a better tomorrow. This is a small price to pay considering the alternatives.
An Investigative Report

To: All who dear the U.S. Constitution of our Republic May 26, 2003
Re: UCC/Redemption Process
May 21, 2003 shortly after 8 AM my wife paged me on the office
intercom where we live and told me FBI agents were in our neighbor's
driveway looking over into our back yard. The fact is that there was
one IRS CID agent and eleven FBI agents in position around the
property. They terrorized my wife and son in law at gunpoint at the
front door ordering them out of the house even though IRS CID
Michael Hunter knew months before when he and his supervisor
interviewed me there were no guns on the property. Also, at that
previous meeting I made it clear that all of the information I had
was available to him. However, at that time when I offered to show
certain evidence and files to him and his supervisor he refused to
look at the documentation in my files.
Then for the next four hours they searched and "secured" the house,
property and my office seizing most of the files from my office as
well as computers and other documents. Christopher Langerth, the
lead FBI agent from San Francisco and Michael Hunter, the IRS CID
agent from Eugene, Oregon "interviewed" me for over two hours. They
revealed that their reason in doing all this was that they believe I
have violated USC Title 18, Section 514. No formal charges had been
filed. No court of law had been convened. No jury was presented with
any evidence. No jury of my peers had rendered any verdict.
The alleged "authority" of these two men and their anonymous
associates to conduct this "search and seizure" was a copy of an
unsigned paper they alleged was a "Search Warrant" stamped with a
magistrates name and not attached to any supporting documents though
it appeared to have been attached to some other papers at some prior
time. "Attachment A" referenced on the unsigned paper "copy" alleged
to be a "SEARCH WARRANT ON WRITTEN AFFIDAVIT was not presented, but
two pages of alleged items they were to search and seize were handed
to me as "Attachment B" not attached to the unsigned copy.
Mr. Langerth and Mr. Hunter made it abundantly clear to me that I
was to never have anything to do with a Bill of Exchange in the
future. The implication is clear. Though I have not been charged
with any crime. Though I have not been convicted in a court of law
by a jury of my peers. They have determined that I am guilty of
violating a United State Code. This determination made by a man who
works for the IRS, an "agency" that has been declared by the U.S.
Justice Department to NOT be an agency of the U.S. Government! See
DIVERSIFIED METAL PRODUCTS vs. T-BOW COMPANY TRUST, IRS et al.
Michael Hunter and Christopher Langerth have concluded I am guilty
and they have taken most of the documents I had in my possession to
prove my innocence.
Just what is all this furor about?
I am quite familiar with a number of widely divergent views held by
proponents and antagonists in what is commonly known
as "UCC/Redemption." The following report addresses some of the key
issues in contention between the various factions and looks at the
facts revealed by a number of sources for this information, i.e.
1. Is a birth certificate in itself an instrument, a promissory note
or other negotiable instrument of commercial value?
2. Is the birth certificate on record at a county and/or with a
state a contract giving the state and ultimately the federal
government control over all commercial aspects of the individual
3. Does the filing of a Uniform Commercial Code (UCC) Financing
Statement, Addendum and/or Change Statement/Amendment encompass all
commercial, civil and even criminal activity?
4. Does following the steps of the "UCC/Redemption Process" result
in getting some value through the Federal Government without any
value being given in return?; and
5. Is the "UCC Redemption Process" simply a ruse or trick that will
only result in subsequent retaliation by government agencies against
those who file and participate in this process?
Most attorneys view the UCC from the perspective of litigation and
adjudication. However, the UCC is legislated (Administrative Law)
that codifies the rules for all commercial transactions between
countries, states and individuals. The courts acknowledge they do
not have the authority or jurisdiction to amend, alter or nullify
any of the Articles of the UCC. They can only consider "gray areas"
such as: Who holds the priority position? The party that filed the
UCC first or the one who perfected first? The courts have addressed
and determine in specific situations what can be considered
a "fixture" as it relates to real property under the UCC.
When one files a UCC form and it is recorded by a state's UCC
office, that filing becomes a legal document of public record
identifying the filer as the Secured Party. Hence no court can
lawfully rule on the fact or existence of the filing itself. That
filing is a legal fact. The employees of the UCC Department in each
state are fiduciaries required to follow specific rules and
procedures. If a UCC filing meets the specifications of those rules
and procedures the document is to be recorded. There are minor
variations in the UCC subsections from state to state and even
country to country, but the bulk of the commercial rules and
procedures are universal and uniform. Hence the designation Uniform
UCC filing offices are located in each state of the union, in each
of the territories and protectorates of the U.S. as well as in many
foreign countries. Filing a UCC form is an administrative action
that, when accepted and recorded by the UCC office, is stamped with
a file number, date, hour and even minute of filing. The UCC
Financing Statement (UCC-1) details a Secured Party's status in any
commercial transaction according to the Articles of the UCC as well
as various section of the United States Code dealing
with "Property." Once a Secured party's UCC form has been filed it
is a fact in public record that there is a secured, vested interest
therein holding a superior claim and all other parties at interest
who file thereafter must acknowledge, accept and respect the Secured
Party's superior and prior position. Any changes filed thereafter by
the Secured Party can be accomplished by filing an Amendment (UCC-3)
referencing the original UCC filing. However, the facts are clear.
The UCC deals with secured, vested interest and/or possession, never
title. Title is another subject altogether.
1. Is the Birth Certificate itself a commercial instrument, a
Promissory Note or other negotiable instrument of value?
The answer is an emphatic NO! However, the authorization to prepare
a Certificate of Live Birth is given in the form of an application
signed by the parents and/or the doctor that is in form and
substance a commercial contract. A local or state birth certificate
is simply evidence that a commercial contact has been entered into
making the newborn a ward of the "state." Within two weeks and three
days the Certificate of Live Birth based on that application is
delivered and filed in Washington, D.C. Furthermore, it is a bonded
instrument. On the back of the document is a letter (A-N) followed
by eight numbers. More recently issued Social Security Cards have a
similar bond serial number stamped on the back.
Is the Birth Certificate itself, originally prepared in the county
of birth, a contract giving the state control over all aspects of
the individual represented thereon?
Again the answer is NO. A birth certificate is not a contract and
has no value in and of itself except as evidence that a Certificate
of Live Birth does exist. That Certificate is on file in the
official records in Washington, D.C. and stands as incontrovertible
evidence that there is a living, breathing man or woman whose
existence has been registered with the state and with certain
federal agencies. Records of foreign born are on file with a
Certificate of Naturalization, Citizenship or other document
authorizing their residence here. Public agencies designate the name
on the document as a "person." The value placed on the Certificate
of Live Birth is based on the ability of the "state" to tax the
future assets of that "Debtor." A bond is taken out by the
Department of the Treasury and a bond # is stamped on the back of
the Certificate of Live Birth. Printouts of some Individual Master
Files (IMF) reveal that bond to be about $650,000. One IRS Master
File I saw lists an IRS Treasury Bond in the amount of $742,500 that
the individual requester knew nothing about. However, all the profit
generated by this investment between the birth and the death of the
living, breathing man or woman is kept by the "state."
1933 was a pivotal year for the United States government and the
American people. History reveals that it took only 20 years after
1913, the year the Federal Reserve Act was "approved" by Congress
for the United States (Corporate) to slip into debt and insolvency.
The International Bankers served Notice of this fact on the
government. Between January and July of 1933 the Roosevelt
Administration and Congress responded. Exactly how all this was
orchestrated is too lengthy to be addressed here, but this fact is
clear – since then the birth or naturalization record for every U.S.
Citizen is on file in the official records in Washington, D.C. and
the property and assets of every living U.S. Citizen is pledged as
collateral for the National Debt. Information I have received from
various government agencies indicates the filed Certificate of Live
Birth documents themselves have specific instructions printed on the
back stipulating by whom, to whom and in what time frame the
document is to be created and delivered. First to the County Health
Commissioner, followed by the Secretary of State and finally the
Department of Commerce though the files are not maintained in their
offices. Within two weeks and three days each Certificate of Live
Birth is to be filed in D.C. Evidence reveals that there is even a
Federal Children Department established by the Shepherd/Townsend Act
of 1922 under the Department of Commerce that appears to be involved
in this process in some way.
I have seen IMFs that list commercial activity in the $billions
assigned to individuals making around $50,000 per year! The
government is using their name and assets to trade in drugs, crude
oil and other commodities. This is just another example in evidence
that all property, real and personal of every living American, is
committed by Congress to back the National Debt. In 1933 Congress
turned over control of all the post offices in D.C. to the Secretary
of the Treasury. Why? That is how the money comes in especially
around April 15! Read the 1933 Congressional record you will realize
that the office of the Secretary of the Treasury is actually the
keeper in the financial office of the United States (Corporate) to
control the flow of all income to the U.S. so that the Creditor, the
bankers who own the Federal Reserve, will receive their money. The
salary of the Secretary, John W. Snow, is paid by the International
Monetary Fund. "He who pays the piper calls the tune."
According to government sources well over twenty-five million UCC
financing statements have been filed with UCC offices in many
states. Corresponding commercial paperwork has been sent to the
Secretary of the Treasury. These facts have been compiled through
information obtained from the CID of the IRS, FBI, Secret Service,
Justice Department, the Department of the Treasury and the Secretary
of State. By their own admission not one properly filed UCC form has
been rejected or criminally prosecuted.
However, the revised UCC Articles, especially IX (effective July 1,
2001) imply that the UCC Financing Statement of the Secured Party
applicant must be filed in the birth state or UCC Region. That
recorded filing must then be included with a Charge-Back Instruction
Notice, a 1040 ES form and a birth certificate with the Secretary of
the Treasury. The Secretary is the other Party at Interest. Thirdly,
the Secured Party needs to file a UCC Financing Statement and
Addendum with the UCC office in the "resident" state to protect
Employees at the Department of the Treasury and the Analysis and
Control Division of the IRS where the files are kept make it clear
the birth certificate has no commercial value. However, government
agents acknowledge that the Certificates of Live Birth do exist and
are on file. Some have even admitted that the Application for the
Birth Certificate does have commercial value based on the ability of
government to tax the future earnings of the person represented by
those documents. However, the applications are not on file in D.C.
Research indicates they may well be either in Puerto Rico or
The states, protectorates and D.C. have formed a National UCC
Administration. They have partitioned the United States into six UCC
Regions. If one UCC office within that region is not willing to
accept for filing a properly worded UCC Financing Statement another
UCC in that region will. One can record a regional filing in a UCC
region state that is the same as filing in their birth state. If one
is born outside the U.S., but is authorized to live here and hold a
Social Security Card, they can file the UCC form in the state or
region where they resided when they received such authorization.
Specifically, research reveals that the UCC and other required
paperwork filed with the birth state or region is logged in at the
mailroom – 1500 Pennsylvania NW, Washington, D.C. This is the
address of legal service for the Secretary of the Treasury.
According to LaTanya Y. Wilson all UCC and Bill of Exchange
documents are routed to the IRS – Room 1120, 1111 Constitution Ave -
NW, Washington, D.C. 20224 under the administration of Felix Zech.
This is the Analysis and Control Division of the IRS. These
documents are scrutinized by the Secret Service, the FBI and Justice
Department. Dolores Douglas at the Analysis and Control Division has
stated that these are designated as "UCC Contract Trusts."
The UCC Contract Trusts are distinct and separate from Direct
Treasury Accounts used exclusively for trading in Treasury Bonds
that are administered by the Bureau of Public Debt. I have learned
that many of the UCC and Bill of Exchange documents received at 1500
Pennsylvania Ave NW are misdirected to the BPD. One major error is
that many filers reference a Treasury Direct or Direct Treasury
account in their documents.
At the Analysis and Control Division of the IRS Building in D.C. UCC
Contract Trusts are processed and the paperwork is then routed to
one of two IRS Centers. For east of the Mississippi they are routed
to Cincinnati, Ohio. West of the River they are sent to Fresno,
California. I have since learned that Notices discharging IRS claims
east of the Mississippi are also to be sent to Joseph Kehoe –
CSB/SPF of the IRS in D.C. West of the River they are to be sent to
Gary Sterr – WRM/SPF – Seattle, Washington.
Current reports indicate the UCC files and paperwork is scrutinized
by the Secret Service, the Justice Department, FBI, routed to the
CID, then to the IRS Technical Support Division (TSD) in the state
from where the Secured Party initiated the discharge. A December
2002 memo from LaTanya Wilson notes that copies of these documents
are also forwarded to Jeanean West at the Department of Justice, Tax
Division in D.C.
Here are some important details regarding the administration and
function of the TSD:
Almost every financial institution connected with the Federal
Reserve System has in its register or has contracted access to an
IRS account known as a Treasury Tax and Loan account (TTL).
The TTL account in each financial institution is administered from
the TSD office located in most state offices of the IRS. As a result
of IRS internal reorganization the Technical Support Manager (TSM)
in each State Divisional Office of the IRS has been assigned the
authority formerly assigned to the District Director.
When a "NOTICE of Levy/Lien" is presented to any financial
institution by the IRS (usually by fax) the financial institution
usually responds routinely with a by making a simple entry in their
computer transferring the asset from the depositor's account to the
IRS TTL account. THE ASSET DOES NOT PHYSICALLY LEAVE THEIR OFFICE. A
few financial institutions do not have TTL accounts. They place a 21
day hold on the funds and then forward the amount demanded directly
to the IRS.
When a "Release of Levy/Lien" is issued by the IRS the financial
institution makes an entry in the computer and transfers funds from
the TTL account to the depositor's account if applicable. A properly
prepared and filed UCC form on file with the bank can be an
administrative preventative action a Secured Party can take to
document prior, superior claim to those assets on deposit. See
United Tobacco Warehouse vs. Wells (1973) and Diversified Metal
Products vs. T-Bow Company Trust, IRS, et al (1993). Some banks will
not accept UCC documents. Deposit the funds in a financial
institution that will.
Discharging claims in the public sector and with the IRS through the
UCC Contract Trust can be accomplished by the Secured Party with
presentment of Bonded Registered Bill of Exchange directly to the
Secretary of the Treasury. When an assessment (claim) is made by the
IRS, a federal or state taxing agency, the claim can be
stamped "Accepted For Value" by the Secured Party and sent via
Certified (or Registered) Mail to the Secretary of the Treasury for
discharge. This action is documented and authorized through Public
Policy HJR-192, Title IV, Sec. 401 of the Federal Reserve Act, the
Supreme Court's confirmation in Guaranty Trust of New York vs.
Henwood, et al (1939) and Public Law 73-10. Such action is further
confirmed in USC Title XII, Title XXVIII, Sec. 1641, 3002 and the
Foreign Sovereign Immunity Act.
Regarding the alleged commercial value of the birth certificate the
following facts are clear:
*Hundreds of thousands birth certificates referenced in UCC
Financing Statements have been filed and stamped by numerous state
UCC filing offices. Under the revised Article (Chapter) IX of the
UCC (July 1, 2001) such filers had until June 30, 2002 to re file
the UCC-1 with their birth state. By referencing their original
filing they could protect the earlier filing date that, then, would
be filed with the Secretary of the Treasury. Failure to do so,
however, by July 1, 2002 would result in losing their original
filing date and their status as the Secured Party with the Secretary
of the Treasury.
*The Department of the Treasury acknowledges that UCC filings by
millions of Secured Parties have been routed to the Analysis and
Control Division of the IRS in D.C. Not one, to my knowledge has
been criminally prosecuted. We have been told that many are in limbo
because the files are not complete.
*Thousands of discharge documents have been presented to the
Secretary of the Treasury, routed to the Analysis and Control
Division of the IRS for processing and not one has been criminally
All of the foregoing reveals that those who have properly filed UCC
documents in the Redemption Process have not committed any crime
according to the Department of the Treasury, the Secret Service, the
Department of Justice and the IRS.
Does the filing of UCC Financing statements and Change/Amendments
encompass all commercial, civil and even criminal actions?
According to numerous government sources all commercial transactions
in the U.S. and many other countries come under the Legislated
(Administrative) Law known as the Uniform Commercial Code. These
transactions all become "bonded" when they are processed through the
Federal Reserve System and/or the Department of the Treasury. The
courts do claim jurisdiction for commercial transactions that appear
criminal. The UCC Articles themselves are Administrative Law and not
subject to the jurisdiction of the courts and litigation.
Over the past number of years I have had contact with those who have
stated they have received proof from Department of Commerce
documents that their Certificates of Live Birth are being used as
commercial instruments. A detailed investigation by Carl Erickson
has revealed some startling facts in this regard.
When the Application and Certificate of Live Birth arrives at the
Department of the Treasury in Washington, D.C. the Certificate is
bonded, an account is set up with what we know as the Social
Security Number, funds are borrowed. The paper credit is invested in
stocks and bonds. According to the Bureau of Engraving even Federal
Reserve Notes are printed bearing the Bond Number that is assigned
to and stamped on the back of each Certificate of Live Birth. The
Bond Number consists of a letter (A-N0 followed by eight numbers. A
similar combination is now routinely printed on the back of Social
Security Cards. The fact is that the very existence of every living,
breathing man or woman in the several states is bonded and used for
the commercial activities of the United States (Corporate) now in
Those who properly file in their birth state or UCC Region establish
the distinct and separate identity of the Secured Party apart from
the Debtor (Strawman). Presenting that filing along with the
Instruction Order (Chargeback), the IRS 1040 ES form, the AFV
stamped birth certificate notifies the Secretary of the Treasury
that the Secured Party is now established with a prior, superior
claim on all assets and liabilities of the Debtor. The liabilities
can then be presented to the Secretary for processing and discharge
through the UCC Contract Trust.
An increasing number of states now accept the UCC Financing
Statement and Addendum. To my knowledge not one state has prosecuted
any such filing as unlawful, illegal or criminal. Many states are
still digesting the revised UCC Code (July 1, 2001) and many
counties still do not have provision for perfecting the UCC filing
under Article 9-333(a) as a Possessory Lien. The inclusion of 9-333
(a) is the first time a form of lien by name has been included in
Is following the Redemption Process simply an attempt to get
something for nothing through the Secretary of the Treasury?
In June 1933 the International Bankers, owners of the Federal
Reserve, essentially took control of all private and real property
with the consent of Congress and Executive Orders of the President.
Establishing status as the Secured Party for the entity represented
by the Certificate of Live Birth does not constitute
getting "something for nothing." These procedures set up by the
government were put in place so that the Secured Party could reclaim
a part of what is rightfully theirs under the U.S. Constitution.
Congress made provision beginning in the early 1900s for every minor
to reinstate their status as an American under the U.S. Constitution
when they became of age. You were a minor when the original contract
(Application) was entered into by your parents. These provisions
were scattered throughout various legislative acts, joint
resolutions and executive orders, many in 1933, as well as in the
Congressional Record based on Public Policy HJR-192, codified in
Public Law 73-10 and confirmed by the U.S. Supreme Court in 1939.
See Guarantee Trust of New York v. Henwood, et al (FN3). By these
placement actions the Administration and Congress basically kept the
details obscured so no one could readily avail himself of such
remedy. Very few were even aware such procedures existed until
fairly recently. The UCC filing with the birth/UCC Regional, the
Secretary of the Treasury and resident state is an essential part of
the Redemption Process. The IMF through their representative, the
Secretary of the Treasury, with the use of the Federal Reserve and
collection activity of the IRS virtually controls all assets of
every U.S. Citizen. With the UCC/Redemption the Secured Party
establishes the right to begin reversing that absolute control over
the Debtor (Strawman). The Secured Party establishes level ground
with the Secretary of the Treasury taking back a measure of control
of those assets.
However, UCC filings, properly prepared and correctly filed, go much
further in protecting the property and interests of the Secured
Party. Such filings can clearly secure legal vested interest control
of the Secured Party without the complex jurisdiction of the courts
and apart from the arena of controversy.
Is the Redemption Process (Plan) simply a "get rich quick" ruse or
trick that will only result in retaliation by the government against
those who follow it?
The Secured Party under the UCC/Redemption Process does not hold the
actual Application for a Certificate of Live Birth. Therefore, the
process can only be used as an "Accepted For Value" response to a
commercial claim. A written, contracted, acknowledged claim received
by the Debtor (Strawman) can be Accepted For Value by the Secured
Party and discharged when properly presented through the Secretary
of the Treasury to the UCC Contract Trust on file with the Analysis
and Control Division of the IRS. Unfortunately, many have attempted
to circumvent or distort this fact only to find law enforcement and
the courts more than willing to enforce and adjudicate. IRS-CID and
FBI are often quick to use their intimidation and threat to
unlawfully discourage what the courts of law only should handle.
Employees at the Department of the Treasury make it clear they do
not accept or act upon faxed orders, telephoned or wired
instructions. Hard copy, original in-signature forms and documents
must be presented via Certified (or registered) mail as filed with
both the state and the Secretary of the Treasury. In 2002, before
his resignation, Mr. Paul H. O'Neill made it clear to a Senator from
Arkansas that when he is aware of and receives Bill of Exchange
documents, he holds them, thus honoring them.
The IRS has recently increased its unlawful use of threats and
intimidation with the help of the FBI to discourage and stop the
presentment of all Bill of Exchange documents by the Secured party
to the Secretary. However, properly prepared and presented
negotiable instruments from a legitimate Secured Party can be
lawfully and legally processed through local financial institutions
by the claimant through the Secretary of the Treasury and ledgered
by the financial institution through the Treasury Tax and Loan (TTL)
account. However, certain employees at the Department of the
Treasury persist in misrouting many of the documents presented by a
Secured Party to the Secretary of the Treasury by labeling them as
Treasury Securities (which they are not) then sending them to the
Bureau of Public Debt instead of to the Analysis and Control
Division of the IRS and the UCC Contract Trust.
As far as I have been able to determine discharge of claims in the
public sector, federal and state, initiated by the IRS are
discharged with a simple ledger entry and computer transfer for
credit and debit through the IRS Technical Support Division. Further
confirmation regarding this process has come from the Special
Procedure Handling Offices of the IRS.
For the Secured Party the Uniform Commercial Code, executed
correctly, levels the field of commerce to a great degree. We
continue to gain more knowledge and understanding in spite of
stonewalling, being fed misinformation and even being the target of
threats and blackmail. "You shall know the truth and the truth will
set you free." Remember, our Consumer Advocate ministry operates
entirely as a charitable service totally dependent on donations and
prayers. Both are deeply appreciated at this time.
