Fringe On The U.S. Flag What Does It Mean?

Admiralty Courts in Colorado?


Patriots are subjected to much ridicule when they object to [Admiralty flag] the flag that appears in every government office and courtroom in the land. That flag is the United States flag... with one seemingly minor cosmetic difference - a knotted golden fringe on three sides.

Government officials and judges adamantly refuse requests to remove the gold fringed flag and replace it with the constitutional flag of the United States as defined in 4 U.S.C. Section 1,2, and 3 - which has NO fringe.

Why should anyone be concerned about this apparently innocent decorative feature? What difference does it make?

The difference is that the flag that is displayed is legal notice, to all who enter, of the type of law that holds jurisdiction. The constitutional United States flag signifies common law jurisdiction.

The gold fringed United States flag is the Admiralty or War flag which denotes Admiralty or martial law.

Hogwash, you say? Is there no Admiralty Court claiming jurisdiction in America except in matters that occur on the high seas? Think again! Just as the founders of this country railed against the King for extending Admiralty law to the lands of the Colonies, so are those few patriots who have paid attention to the corruption of our legal system, raising a hue and a cry over the current usurpers of jurisprudence.

Wed. May 22, 1996 Legal Notices Section

The legal notices here displayed concern property seized by Federal agents as booty under Admiralty law. Notice is required so that anyone who might have an interest in the property seized has opportunity to seek to protect his interest.

One would not be wise to attempt this, though. Most likely, any excuse will be used to allege that the party claiming interest in the property was a party to the alleged offense that resulted in the original seizure.

The allegation is enough to justify the taking of property - under Admiralty law guilt is presumed. The claimant might well lose other property not yet in the hands of these landgoing pirates, even though no actual conviction of any offense is ever entered. Check your local paper's legal notices. Look into the cases cited and see if any conviction occurs - or if any charges were even filed - against the persons whose property was seized.

Colorado is a long ways from the ocean. Admiralty law is farther still from the common law recognized under Federal and State constitutions.

You decide... are these patriots kooks? Or have we been blind to the tyranny that is even now upon us?

Admiralty and Maritime, Military Law

The Law of Pirates, The Law of the "Other United States" the corporation.....

The Territorial (District) United States operates under absolutist "Military and Maritime Law. Originally, this law was only applicable on the open seas and waterways, but it was brought inland for the subject citizens of the Possessions, Territories and ceded lands Belonging to the United States.

According to U.S. Code. Title 18 7. Admiraty Jurisdiction is applicable to the following areas:

1. The High Seas
2. Any American Ship
3. Any lands reserved or aquired for the use of the United States, and under the exclusive or concurrent jurisdiction thereof, or any place purchased or otherwise aquired by the United States by consent of the legislature of the state......

The following information is taken from 34 Opin Atty Gen, pg 34 (Opinions of the Attorney General) under the catagory of "The President," the flag is discussed as follows:

"The only statute now in force which defines the flag or regulates its design is the Act of April 4, 1818, Chapter 34 (3 Stat, 415), reenacted as sections 1791 and 1792 if of the revised statutes of the United States. Section 1791 provides that, " the flag of the United States shall be thirteen horizontal stripes, alternate red and white, and the union of the flag shall be thirty-seven stars, white in blue field."

Section 1792 provides that "on the admission of a new State into the union one star shall be added to the union of the flag., and such addition shall take effect on the fourth day of July then next succeeding such admission."

Note that there is no statutory authority for the "yellow fringe around the flag."

The use of such a fringe is prescribed in current Army regulations, No. 260-10 The yellow fringed flag is therefore , a "Military Flag".

Under the Admiraty Law of Flags (12 C.J.S. 12), a ship owner gives notice, by his flag, to all who enter that he intends that the law of the flag will regulate. The person entering into agreements therein , must either submit to the law of that flag or not contract..If your've ever left a courtroom feeling that you had been to a court martial rather than a court of law this is the reason...Don't be deceived by the pretty yellow fringe, it is your warning that you have submitted yourself to the rule of the master, and are under the juridiction of that flag. If you enter a courtroom and enter a plea in the presence of a military flag, you have acquiesced (consented without protest) to the federal military jurisdiction. It is your warning that you are leaving the majority of your fundamental rights, as protected by the Constitutional at the door.

"It is an elementary rule of pleading, that a plea to the juridiction is.. a tactic admission that the court has a right to judge in the case, and is a waiver to all exceptions to the jurisdiction."......Court case (Girty v. Logan, 6 Bush Ky. 8)

Always challenge the jurisdiction of a court. These courts rule on "Public Policy" rather than the Law, and can only decide whether or not proper legislative procedures were adhered to......

"Democracy is two wolves and a lamb voting on what to have for lunch. Liberty is a well-armed lamb contesting the vote." Benjamin Franklin, 1759

"For in a Republic, who is 'the country?' Is it the Government, which is for the moment in the saddle? Why, the Government is merely a servant - merely a temporary servant; it cannot be its prerogative to determine what is right and what is wrong and decide who is a patriot and who isn't. Its function is to obey orders, not originate them." - Mark Twain
