PDF  Menu - State of Alaska "BAR Association Membership Cards" and "Licenses to Practice Law"

There has been an opening for replacement "Judges" of the "Courts" for the "State of Alaska."  A demand (request) has been made upon the "Alaska Judicial Council," the "Alaska BAR Association," and with "Governor, Bill Walker," to produce the "Licenses" to "Practice Law" of those "Judicial Candidates" which is a requirement of them to possess by the "Constitution" and "Statutes" for the "State of Alaska."  There has been no corporation in the production of "photo copies" of those "Licenses."  The "BAR Association Membership Cards" are not "Licenses to Practice Law."

PDF   Menu - "Epperly's vs. Potter & Cribley" 

This is a "Case in Controversy" that is before "The Superior Court, First Judicial District, at Juneau Alaska" wherein questions of law involving the authority for a "State" of the "Union" and its municipal corporations to assess "Ad Valorem Property Taxes" upon those "Estates" of the "Tracts" of land that were conveyed out of "United States Homestead Land Patents," especially when one or more of those "Estates" is in ownership of the government of "The United States of America."

Did you know that all "Deeds" that convey "Real Estate" are all founded upon "Land Patents" that have been issued by a "State" of the "Union" or by the government of "The United States of America."  All "rights," "priveleges," and "immunities" comes from the "Land Patents," not from "Real Estate Deeds."

This is an excellent video on explaining the nature of "Legal Fiction Names" and how your government is using fraud and deception to gain ownership over your body and possessions.

PDF   The Anti-Government Movement Guidebook  

There is a movement afoot in this country today that is made up of disaffected and often dispossessed Americans who are seeking a better way through a wholesale return to their view of the past.  This movement has been called many things: the antigovernment movement, the sovereignty movement, and the common law courts movement.  Regardless of the name attached to the beliefs and the people who follow them, one common denominator exists: a feeling of despair, rooted in personal and pecuniary loss, and manifested in a new, defiant mistrust and spite for the ways of the current government.  This guide focuses on the ways in which followers of these movements impact the operation of our state court systems.

PDF   Citizen's Rule Book (Duty of the Jury)    

The purpose of this booklet is to revive, as Jefferson put it, “The Ancient Principles.” It is not designed to promote lawlessness or a return to the jungle. The “Ancient Principles” refer to the Ten Commandments and the Common Law. The Common Law is, in simple terms, just plain common sense and has its roots in the Ten Commandments.

PDF   Woe Unto You Lawyers  

A lusty, gusty attack on "The Law" as a curious, antiquated institution which, through outworn procedures, technical jargon and queer mummery, enables a group of medicine-men to dominate our social and political lives and our business, to their own gain.

The BAR Card

What do you know of the BAR Association?  This short article exposé's the BAR for its criminal acts and how it is destroying the rights of the People and their Constitutional government.


Plea in Abatements respond to the majority of imperial powers paperwork - head on.  When written and served properly, they have been very successful at stopping imperial suits - before they get started.  Plea in Abatements have the force and effect of an indictment and/or a civil case or suit.  When a Defendant does not answer a Plea in Abatement, a Default (properly written and served) becomes Res Judicata, (i.e., final judgment has been made.). 

When properly served with Default, they are a Public Record of wrong doing, and as such, can be used by the abating Demandant (the one who serves the Abatement) in further actions against imperial powers fiduciaries (agents, bureaucrats, judges, etc.), such as Trespass on Case.

Mortgage Fraud

The Great Banking Deception

In order for any contract to be valid, there must be 'full disclosure,' 'good faith,' 'valuable consideration,' and 'clean hands.'  Here is what the banks advertise: "Come to our bank. We have money to loan."  Is this really what happens?

Mortgage Fraud 

When you entered into a loan contract with a bank, you signed a note or contract promising to pay the bank back, and you agreed to provide collateral that the bank could seize if you did not repay the loan. This contract supposedly qualified you to receive the bank's money. But did the bank provide 'full disclosure' of all of the terms of this agreement? Read and decide for yourself if the bank was acting in 'good faith', that you received 'valuable consideration', and that your 'signature' on that agreement is valid.

Vattel - Law of Nations

National law is more a moral than a legal science. Law is a rule of action prescribed by competent authority. Moreover, all Law implies some sanction to enforce it. Now National law is that which defines and regulates the social duties of Nation to Nation. Where then is the authority that prescribes such duties, and where the sanction that enforces them?  To find these we must go back to the individual Man, and see whether such duties appertain to him; by what authority, and with what sanctions.

"Barefoot's World" is an Internet website that has many interesting Articles which I would like to encourage you to visit.  This Article of Admiralty Law is very well written and it explains why we no longer own our home or have any Courts of Law that is founded upon the Common Law.  This is a must read Article.

PDF   Conversation With A Marriage License Bureau  

This is a very interesting transcript of an interview with an employee of a State Marriage License Bureau.  This conversation exposes the Marriage License as a Contract that cannot be broken with the State and grants the State absolute authority over your family and your property.

Commercial Liens

The commercial lien, which is authorized both by the common law and by Title 15 of the United States Code (USC), is reportedly the same lien the IRS uses to take Americans' homes and cars.  However, some pro se litigants do not depend upon Title 15, but upon the common law of negotiable instruments (a.k.a. Commercial Law).

As such, it's almost impossible to remove a commercial lien without the approval of the individual claimant who filed the lien.  Although a commercial lien can be challenged by a court at common law or by a 7th Amendment jury trial, it does not require a court process or a court judgment for its establishment, validity, or execution.  Therefore, it appears that the courts may not be able to simply extinguish this lien on their own discretion (or on motion from the lien debtors) without the voluntary approval of the person who filed the lien.

Traditionally, these liens can only be removed by the voluntary decision of the person who filed the lien, by the decision of a constitutional jury trial at common law, or by waiting 99 or 100 years.  Since the common law has been smothered in the U.S.A., all judges are essentially powerless to overcome the liens.

Memorandum of Law on the Name  (HTML Format)

PDF   Memorandum of Law on the Name  (Acrobat PDF Format) 

Many people are involved in diligent research concerning the use of all capital letters for proper names, e.g., JOHN PAUL JONES as a substitute for John Paul Jones in all court documents, driver's licenses, bank accounts, birth certificates, etc..  Is the use of all capital letters to designate a name some special English grammar rule or style?  Is it a contemporary American style of English?  Is the use of this form of capitalization recognized by educational authorities?  Is this an official judicial or U.S. government rule and/or style of grammar?  Why do attorneys, court clerks, prosecutors judges, insurance companies, banks, credit card companies, utility companies, etc. always use all capital letters when writing a proper name?

The UCC Connection

This is a slightly condensed, casually paraphrased transcript of tapes of a seminar given in 1990 by Howard Freeman.  It was prepared to make available the knowledge and experience of Mr. Freeman in his search for an accessible and understandable explanation of the confusing state of the government and the courts.  It should be helpful to those who may have difficulty learning from such lectures, or those who want to develop a deeper understanding of this information without having to listen to three or four hours of recorded material.

Devvy Kidd's Power Page   [Outside Page Link]

Here is a Power Page that is loaded with information.  Mrs. Devvy Kidd has been a guest on more than 1,000 radio shows and countless personal speaking appearances.  Devvy ran for Congress in 1994 & 1996.  She has a 90-minute video titled, "What Congress and the Media Won't Tell You."  Mrs. Devvy Kidd is also the author of four other published books dealing with construction financing and government systems.

Hiding Behind the BAR

In the U.S., they're collectively called everything from "attorney" to "lawyer" to "counselor."  Are these terms truly equivalent, or has the identity of one been mistaken for another?  What exactly is a "Licensed BAR Attorney?"  This credential accompanies every legal paper produced by attorneys - along with a State Bar License number.  As we are about to show you, an "attorney" is not a "lawyer," yet the average American improperly interchanges these words as if they represent the same occupation, and the average American attorney unduly accepts the honor to be called "lawyer" when he is not.

Trial by Jury

LYSANDER SPOONER tells us that for more than six hundred years - that is, since Magna Carta, in 1215 - there has been no clearer principle of English or American constitutional law, than that, in criminal cases, it is not only the right and duty of juries to judge what are the facts, what is the law, and what was the moral intent of the accused; but that it is also their right, and their primary and paramount duty, to judge of the justice of the law, and to hold all laws invalid, that are, in their opinion, unjust or oppressive, and all persons guiltless in violating, or resisting the execution of, such laws.  This is the full essay on Trial by Jury at common law that was written by Lysander Spooner in the year of 1852.

The United States government became the conqueror and all states in the Union were thus reformed as Franchisees of the Federal Corporation.  The key to when the states became Federal Franchisees is related to the date when such states enacted the Field Code in law.

PDF   "State Powers" under Article X of the Bill of Rights

PDF   "The Unconstitutional 14th Amendment" and "The Committee of States"

Over the years, members or our State Legislatures have introduced "Resolutions" against the U.S. Congress and the President of the United States for trespassing upon the "reserved powers" of the States as protected by Article X of the Bill of Rights to the U.S. Constitution.  The only problem with these "Resolutions" is that Article X of the Bill of Rights only applies to the original thirteen States that brought the "United States" into existence under the Articles of Confederation, not to the States that were brought into the Union under "Statehood Acts" of the Congress of the United States.

These PDF File "Articles" will surprise you about the "Powers" exercised by States that were brought into the Union under "Statehood Acts" of the Congress of the United States.  These "Articles" also shows how the People may bring the "Representatives" of the U.S. Congress and the "Officers" of the Executive and Judicial Branches of the United States government back under the authority of the United States Constitution.

Legal System v. Law System

Their trade is deceit.  There is a difference between 'lawful' and 'legal'.  "Lawful" contemplates the 'spirit of the law' and is embodied in the moral and ethical consideration of rendering unto each man his due.  "Legal" is the 'form of the law' and merely means that it is written down someplace.  It is quite possible for something to be "legal" and still be totally unlawful.  This is a excellent study of the present day courts of the United States.

Modern Robber Barons

Robber baron is defined in Webster’s as an American capitalist of the latter part of the 19th century who became wealthy through exploitation (as of natural resources, governmental influence, or low wage scales).  Today we have a new class of these robber barons which are called "corporations."

A corporation is a legal fiction; it doesn’t exist.  Yes, it exists materially, but it is enshrouded in a blanket of deceit called “corporate veil.  The “United States” is a corporation for remuneration (for profit), and so are all the States, federal and otherwise, and all of their counties, parishes, cities, towns, and other subdivisions.  Under the Clearfield Doctrine, derived from the 1943 Supreme Court Decision in Clearfield Trust, et al. vs. United States, (328 U.S. 363, 318), the court ruled, in essence, that when a government reduces itself to a corporate status, it becomes merely another corporation, having no more nor less standing than all other corporations.  The good town in which we live, shop, and support, therefore, belongs to we the people materially, but we are “governed” by the new breed or robber baron as defined above.

The Mark of the Beast

We are living in a period of time where nearly everyone in the world has been assigned a number.  Every Nation that has a national debt is required by their multinational creditors to track taxpayers' income.  As you will soon find out, treaties with multinational authorities require the United States and other governments to issue Social Security numbers.  This treatise is well documented, not only from the perspective of the Holy Bible, but by the laws and court cases of the United States.  Be sure to study the "Appendixes" for the law as it applies to the United States.

An IRS Attorney's Opinion

The Truth as I see it   [Outside Page Link]

Both concurrently exist today. The corporate system has been gaining predominance in the last 70 years.  Many Sovereigns have contracted with the corporate system unknowingly, unintentionally, and or without full disclosure.  Which one do you want for yourself and your posterity?  Once you know the difference, you may have to make a decision for yourself, your family, and your posterity.  That decision may require changes in how you do things.  You may have to undo what has been done and make your Sovereign status known.  This is not taught in government schools, because they do not want you to know this.  They want power and control over the masses they call "Human Resources."

PDF  U.S. Supreme Court Says "No License Necessary To Drive Automobile On Public Roads"

A Listing of Court Cases

“The right of a citizen to travel upon the public highways and to transport his property thereon, by horse drawn carriage, wagon, or automobile, is not a mere privilege which may be permitted or prohibited at will, but a common right which he has under his right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. Under this constitutional guaranty one may, therefore, under normal conditions, travel at his inclination along the public highways or in public places, and while conducting himself in an orderly and decent manner, neither interfering with nor disturbing another’s rights, he will be protected, not only in his person, but in his safe conduct.”  

Legal Briefs on "The Right To Travel"

Can the state require you to obtain a drivers' license or insurance to operate a vehicle on the public right-of-ways?  The answer may be found in two "Legal Briefs' on your right to travel.

PDF   Court Jurisdiction Challenged - Right To Drive Car 

An individual was given a traffic citation for driving a car without a driver license.  He wrote a letter to the Court challenging jurisdiction and followed up the letter with his appearance in the Courtroom.  He did not cross the "Bar" (railing seperating the audience from the judge's bench) nor did he sit at the Defendant's table, but standing within the audience, he informed the Judge that the Court had no jurisdiction over him and he was waiting for a written letter stating Court's asserted jurisdictional authority and then he walked out of the Courtroom.  Several years have passed since his visit to the Court and he is still driving without a driver license.  His identity has been removed from the letter for privacy purposes.

PDF   The Posse Comitatus Act and the United States Army   

Anytime the use of U.S. Armed Forces in support of civil authorities is considered, government and military leaders, pundits, and citizens reflexively turn to the Posse Comitatus Act for guidance.  Since 9/11, the U.S. Armed Forces face an increased likelihood that they will be called on to participate in actions typically viewed as civil matters.  Many have also called for an increased role for the U.S. Armed Forces in responding to natural disasters.  Though many constitutional provisions, laws, and legal rulings govern this question, in the minds of many, the Posse Comitatus Act has prominence.  Most individuals think they know what the Posse Comitatus Act allows and disallows; most of them are wrong.

The Becraft Briefs   [Outside Page Link]

The briefs and other legal materials which you find here are those which cover subjects which Attorney Larry Becraft believe are of interest to the concerned American.  In reference to the "federal jurisdiction" materials, Mr. Becraft first read tons of cases dealing with the issue and then compiled summaries of them; from that, Mr. Becraft composed the brief utilizing only a small number of the researched cases.  The money issue is one of his favorites, and he drafted the brief which appears here back in the early 80's.  The brief regarding Fifth Amendment protection for personal financial records has its origins back in the early 80's and over time, whenever he ran across a case which should be included, he simply inserted the cite.  The remaining briefs cover several different topics.

Who Is Running America?

Under the doctrine of Parens Patriae, "Government As Parent," as a result of the manipulated bankruptcy of the United States of America in 1930, all the assets of the American people, their person, and of our country itself are held by the Depository Trust Corporation at 55 Water Street, NY, NY, secured by UCC Commercial Liens, which are then monetized as "debt money" by the Federal Reserve.  It may interest you to know that under the umbrella of the Depository Trust Corporation lies the Federal Reserve Corporation and the American Bar Association, the legal arm of the banking interests.

Liberty - Your Right To Make A Living

Part 1. COURT PROCEDURE/ DUE PROCESS      The methodology used by the federal courts and the Department of Justice to prevent any legal challenge to the income tax from being brought before the court in income tax cases is presented. The method, in violation of our most basic constitutional right, has consistently been held to void any claim of jurisdiction in cases where the plaintiff is other than the Internal Revenue Service.

Part 2. LIBERTY---THE RIGHT TO MAKE A LIVING       A citizen's Right to Liberty secured by the Constitution has been repeatedly adjudicated to include the right to pursue a livelihood, and such fundamental constitutional rights are not suitable objects for taxation.

Part 3. SPRINGER, POLLOCK, 16th AMENDMENT       The three items consistently claimed to adjudicate/authorize a tax on wages and salaries are reviewed and it is concluded they have been misrepresented for decades in what appears to be blatant fraud. The income tax imposed on an individual's wages or salary is a bald faced sham without any claim to acceptable legal adjudication.

Part 4. MOTION TO DISMISS §7203 INDICTMENT       A generic motion to dismiss for failure to state a cause of action in a willful failure to file case is based on the legal issues in Part 1. Reference books are identified for edification.

Part 5. HABEAS CORPUS/ CORUM NOBIS       The motion in Part 4 is reworked and expanded into an academic post conviction relief for a willful failure to file conviction. Reference material and procedural guidelines are offered.

Part 6. CORAM NOBIS       Is there any way to challenge a conviction on a willful failure to file charge after completion of sentence to remove probation requirements/restrictions, eliminate payment of court imposed fines, restore voting rights and gun ownership, remove a public stigma, improve employment and credit potential, etc.?  Using the legal issues of Part 1 and the analysis of Parts 4 and 5, the answer appears to be ‘Yes’ and without any filing fee involved.
