Anyone who has ever driven – sic for “sat in traffic” – in New York City would agree that speed is not a problem here. Quite the opposite, in fact: thanks to Our Rulers’ incompetence when it comes to building and managing roads, the Big Apple’s big jams are as legendary as Charley Rangel’s corruption.
That would explain why New York’s potentates are slowing the flow even further. Yes! Idling at the intersection while the light changes from red to green 14 times is insufficient torture for serfs: Mayor Mike “the Nanny” Bloomberg and his execrable “Transportation Commissioner,” Janette Sadik-Khan, want us waiting as those demented Christmas trees flash 25 or 30 times so we all know who’s boss. This while the leeches glide about town in the limos we buy them after “police escorts” clear the streets of mere taxpayers.
No matter: our dictatorial dimwits are foisting “slow zones” on a City that is one gigantic “slow zone.” Or, as the mainstream media puts it, “The city is expanding its campaign to stop speeding drivers cruising through the streets of the five boroughs.” Oh, right: as if we could speed. Ergo, the limit of 30 mph – yep, you read that right: 30 measly miles per hour. Politicians run for re-election faster than that. Tell me, does 30 mph meet anyone’s definition of speeding other than Nanny’s? – will shrink to 20 mph. Ha! Drivers caught in the endless snarl that is New York City wish they could zoom along at 20 mph. Meanwhile, lest the serfs rebel against their betters’ stupidity, the risibly misnamed “speed bump” will also bedevil these zones.
“Slow zones send a strong message to drivers that our neighborhoods are not shortcuts and speeding on our streets is really a matter of life and death,” Saddam Hussein-sorry, Sadik-Khan opined. Saddam has targeted 13 localities for her “strong message”; does she maintain a home in all of them, or is she merely a reflexive socialist when she speaks of them as “ours”? By which, of course, she really means they’re “hers.” But don’t take my word on her power-lust. Instead, listen to an expert on the topic, one whose own hunger for authority has him trying to decree what movies we watch while his cameras watch us: “Dov Hikind, a New York State assemblyman … said of Sadik-Khan[,] ‘Listen, the commissioner enjoys having the freedom [sic] she has. At night she dreams of these things, and the next day she does them’…” No wonder New York’s avenues are a nightmare.
Our Rulers force us to waste more time behind the wheel with the same excuse they cite whenever they impose their whims: to protect us. Saddam steadfastly repeats that mantra even as her subjects denounce her department for distorting and exaggerating statistics. She alleges that “a pedestrian hit by a car going 40 m.p.h. had only a 30 percent chance to survive. Those struck by a car at 30 m.p.h., she said, survive 80 percent of the time. At 20 m.p.h., the figure climbs to about 95 percent.” I am unable to confirm these “facts” anywhere: as far as Google is concerned, Saddam pulled them out of the air. (“Transportation for America” supposedly posts a chart showing “Pedestrian survival rate by vehicle speed,” but its figures differ considerably from Saddam’s. In any event, I failed to find said chart on T4A’s website. And even if I had unearthed it, T4A is hardly an unbiased, scholarly source: it lobbies for “housing, business, environmental, public health, transportation, equitable development and other” special interests; its “vision” encompasses “less need to drive.”) No matter: advertisements of Saddam’s claims sprinkle the City on our dime, indoctrinating victims to shrug at her tyranny.
The “slow zones” come atop another of Saddam’s preferences: bike lanes. About six years ago, her department began reconfiguring streets, swiping an entire lane of scarce asphalt from drivers and awarding it to cyclists – though there are far fewer of the latter and they’re far less taxed, too. In a City where neighborliness is as rare as competent bureaucrats, this further segregates citizens into the groups Progressives adore, then pits them against each other: bikers vs. drivers vs. pedestrians. Or, as a writer for New York Magazine explains, “…in crowded New York, space, and convenience, is finite. Any alteration is an exercise in redistribution—to give to Column A, you have to take away from Column B.” Actually, when Leviathan controls the resource under “alteration,” that’s true everywhere, not just in “crowded New York.” You’ll never read of a shortage of restaurants or cars or computers because the private (albeit regulated) market supplies them – so far. But New York Magazine emphasizes the moral behind every move Saddam, Bloomberg, and Our other Rulers make: “We are going to have to learn to accept a decrease, however minuscule, in our individual freedoms.” Oh, indeed. And it ain’t so minuscule.
Bike lanes and slow zones may content Saddam but not her führer. Mayor “Nanny” Bloomberg also craves “speed cameras…” And “he’s furious that the state Legislature won’t give him the green light” – so furious he’s plumbed new depths of hypocrisy and double standards. Quoth the totalitarian who considers it his business how much soda we drink, the quantity and quality of the fat we eat, and where we smoke, “The first argument is it’s not [the state’s] business, it should be the business of the city.” Yo, Nanny: you listening to yourself?
Apparently not, for he obliviously continued, “The city should be in charge of its own destiny.” Yeah, Nanny, we empathize. We want to be in charge of our own destinies, too, rather than ceding them to you. But when we suggested last month that in one such tiny area, the amount of soda we imbibe, we should decide for ourselves, you responded, “[I]f government’s purpose isn’t to improve the health and longevity of its citizens, I don’t know what its purpose is.” Call me crazily consistent, but that implies you ought to kowtow to Albany’s orders as obediently as you expect us to kowtow to yours.
Then came the clincher. Here Nanny exceeded even his own record for illogic, profound distortion, mendacity and incoherence: “That’s why we had the revolution in 1776,” he pontificated. “There’s no difference why should the city not be in charge of its own destiny…”
Now you know the reason farmers died at Lexington and Concord, Nathan Hale hanged, the Signers pledged their “lives, fortunes, and sacred honor,” militiamen risked everything to defy the government at Saratoga, and Continental volunteers starved at Valley Forge: so that Nanny Bloomberg could rob drivers more outrageously than he already does.
Act of 1871
Act of 1871
1871, February 21: Congress Passes an Act to Provide a Government for
the District of Columbia, also known as the Act of 1871.
With no constitutional authority to do so, Congress creates a separate form of
government for the District of Columbia, a ten mile square parcel of land (see,
Acts of the Forty-first Congress,” Section 34, Session III, chapters 61 and 62).
The act — passed when the country was weakened and financially depleted in
the aftermath of the Civil War — was a strategic move by foreign interests
(international bankers) who were intent upon gaining a stranglehold on the
coffers and neck of America. Congress cut a deal with the international bankers
(specifically Rothschilds of London) to incur a DEBT to said bankers. Because
the bankers were not about to lend money to a floundering nation without
serious stipulations, they devised a way to get their foot in the door of the
The Act of 1871 formed a corporation called THE UNITED STATES. The
corporation, OWNED by foreign interests, moved in and shoved the original
Constitution into a dustbin. With the Act of 1871, the organic Constitution was
defaced — in effect vandalized and sabotage — when the title was capitalized
and the word “for” was changed to “of” in the title.
THE CONSTITUTION OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA is the constitution of
the incorporated UNITED STATES OF AMERICA. It operates in an economic
capacity and has been used to fool the People into thinking it governs the
Republic. It does is not! Capitalization is NOT insignificant when one is referring
to a legal document. This seemingly “minor” alteration has had a major impact
on every subsequent generation of Americans. What Congress did by passing
the Act of 1871 was create an entirely new document, a constitution for the
government of the District of Columbia, an INCORPORATED government. This

Act of 1871
newly altered Constitution was not intended to benefit the Republic. It benefits
only the corporation of the UNITED STATES OF AMERICA and operates entirely
outside the original (organic) Constitution.
Instead of having absolute and unalienable rights guaranteed under the organic
Constitution, we the people now have “relative” rights or privileges. One
example is the Sovereign’s right to travel, which has now been transformed
(under corporate government policy) into a “privilege” that requires citizens to
be licensed. (Passports) By passing the Act of 1871, Congress committed
TREASON against the People who were Sovereign under the grants and decrees
of the Declaration of Independence and the organic Constitution. [Information

FOUNDATION of all the treason since committed by government officials.]
Dove: The following is an expansion and further explanation of the above (an
adaptation of Lisa’s work, done with her permission), which you may want to
read for your own edification. Whereas my Chapter 9 is a time-map of the major
Headlines and Landmines of the 200-years-plus history of America, each
subsequent chapter goes into particular details. This section is from Chapter 18,
“The Tale of Two Governments, which overall addresses the difference between
a democracy and a republic as well as the fact of a federal government and a
shadow government practicing under the guise of The Corporation. I’m sure Lisa
won’t mind your using what you need in order to make whatever point you wish
to make in the moment. . . . C.
The United States Isn’t a Country; It’s a Corporation! In preparation for stealing
America, the puppets of Britain’s banking cabal had already created a second
government, a Shadow Government designed to manage what the common
herd believed was a democracy, but what really was an incorporated UNITED
STATES. Together this chimera, this two-headed monster, disallowed the
common herd all rights of sui juris. [you, in your sovereignty]
Congress, with no authority to do so, created a separate form of government for
the District of Columbia, a ten-mile square parcel of land. WHY and HOW did
they do so? First, Lisa Guliani of Babel Magazine, reminds us that the Civil War
was, in fact, “little more than a calculated front with fancy footwork by
backroom players.” Then she adds: “It was also a strategic maneuver by British
and European interests (international bankers) intent on gaining a stranglehold
on the coffers of America. And, because Congress knew our country was in dire
financial straits, certain members of Congress cut a deal with the international
bankers (in those days, the Rothschilds of London were dipping their fingers into
everyone’s pie). . . . . There you have the WHY, why members of Congress
permitted the international bankers to gain further control of America. . . . . .
“Then, by passing the Act of 1871, Congress formed a corporation known as

Act of 1871
THE UNITED STATES. This corporation, owned by foreign interests, shoved the
organic version of the Constitution aside by changing the word ‘for’ to ‘of’ in the
title. Let me explain: the original Constitution drafted by the Founding Fathers
read: ‘The Constitution for the united states of America.’ [note that neither the
words 'united' nor 'states' began with capital letters] But the CONSTITUTION OF
THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA’ is a corporate constitution, which is
absolutely NOT the same document you think it is. First of all, it ended all our
rights of sovereignty [sui juris]. So you now have the HOW, how the
international bankers got their hands on THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA.”
To fully understand how our rights of sovereignty were ended, you must know
the full meaning of sovereign: “Chief or highest, supreme power, superior in
position to all others; independent of and unlimited by others; possessing or
entitled to; original and independent authority or jurisdiction.” (Webster).
In short, our government, which was created by and for us as sovereigns — free
citizens deemed to have the highest authority in the land – was stolen from us,
along with our rights. Keep in mind that, according to the original Constitution,
only We the People are sovereign. Government is not sovereign. The Declaration
of Independence say, “…government is subject to the consent of the governed.”
That’s us — the sovereigns. When did you last feet like a sovereign? As Lisa
“It doesn’t take a rocket scientist or a constitutional historian to figure out that
the U.S. Government has NOT been subject to the consent of the governed
since long before you or I were born. Rather, the governed are subject to the
whim and greed of the corporation, which has stretched its tentacles beyond the
ten-mile-square parcel of land known as the District of Columbia. In fact, it has
invaded every state of the Republic. Mind you, the corporation has NO
jurisdiction beyond the District of Columbia. You just think it does. “You see,
you are ‘presumed’ to know the law, which is very weird since We the People
are taught NOTHING about the law in school. We memorize obscure facts and
phrases here and there, like the Preamble, which says, ‘We the
People…establish this Constitution for the United States of America.’ But our
teachers only gloss over the Bill of Rights. Our schools (controlled by the
corporate government) don’t delve into the Constitution at depth. After all, the
corporation was established to indoctrinate and ‘dumb-down’ the masses, not to
teach anything of value or importance. Certainly, no one mentioned that
America was sold-out to foreign interests, that we were beneficiaries of the debt
incurred by Congress, or that we were in debt to the international bankers. Yet,
for generations, Americans have had the bulk of their earnings confiscated to
pay a massive debt that they did not incur. There’s an endless stream of things
the People aren’t told. And, now that you are being told, how do you feel about
being made the recipient of a debt without your knowledge or consent? “After
passage of the Act of 1871 Congress set a series of subtle and overt deceptions
into motion, deceptions in the form of decisions that were meant to sell us down
the river. Over time, the Republic took it on the chin until it was knocked down
and counted out by a technical KO [knock out]. With the surrender of the
people’s gold in 1933, the ‘common herd’ was handed over to illegitimate law.

Act of 1871
(I’ll bet you weren’t taught THAT in school.)
“Our corporate form of governance is based on Roman Civil Law and Admiralty,
or Maritime, Law, which is also known as the ‘Divine Right of Kings’ and the
‘Law of the Seas’ — another fact of American history not taught in our schools.
Actually, Roman Civil Law was fully established in the colonies before our nation
began, and then became managed by private international law. In other words,
the government — the government created for the District of Columbia via the
Act of 1871 – operates solely under Private International Law, not Common
Law, which was the foundation of our Constitutional Republic. “This fact has
impacted all Americans in concrete ways. For instance, although Private
International Law is technically only applicable within the District of Columbia,
and NOT in the other states of the Union, the arms of the Corporation of the
UNITED STATES are called ‘departments’ — i.e., the Justice Department, the
Treasury Department. And those departments affect everyone, no matter where
(in what state) they live. Guess what? Each department belongs to the
corporation — to the UNITED STATES.
“Refer to any UNITED STATES CODE (USC). Note the capitalization; this is
evidence of a corporation, not a Republic. For example, In Title 28 3002 (15)
(A) (B) (C), it is unequivocally stated that the UNITED STATES is a corporation.
Translation: the corporation is NOT a separate and distinct entity; it is not
disconnected from the government; it IS the government — your government.
This is extremely important! I refer to it as the ‘corporate EMPIRE of the UNITED
STATES,’ which operates under Roman Civil Law outside the original
Constitution. How do you like being ruled by a corporation? You say you’ll ask
your Congressperson about this? HA!! “Congress is fully aware of this deception.
So it’s time that you, too, become aware of the deception. What this great
deception means is that the members of Congress do NOT work for us, for you
and me. They work for the Corporation, for the UNITED STATES. No wonder we
can’t get them to do anything on our behalf, or meet or demands, or answer our
“Technically, legally, or any other way you want to look at the matter, the
corporate government of the UNITED STATES has no jurisdiction or authority in
ANY State of the Union (the Republic) beyond the District of Columbia. Let that
tidbit sink in, then ask yourself, could this deception have occurred without full
knowledge and complicity of the Congress? Do you think it happened by
accident? If you do, you’re deceiving yourself.
“There are no accidents, no coincidences. Face the facts and confront the truth.
Remember, you are presumed to know the law. THEY know you don’t know the
law or, for that matter, your history. Why? Because no concerted effort was
ever made to teach or otherwise inform you. As a Sovereign, you are entitled to
full disclosure of all facts. As a slave, you are entitled to nothing other than
what the corporation decides to ‘give’ you.
“Remember also that ‘Ignorance of the law is no excuse.’ It’s your responsibility
and obligation to learn the law and know how it applies to you. No wonder the

Act of 1871
corporation counted on the fact that most people are too indifferent,
unconcerned, distracted, or lazy to learn what they need to know to survive
within the system. We have been conditioned to let the government do our
thinking for us. Now’s the time to turn that around if we intend to help save our
Republic and ourselves — before it’s too late.
“As an instrument of the international bankers, the UNITED STATES owns you
from birth to death. It also holds ownership of all your assets, of your property,
even of your children. Think long and hard about all the bills taxes, fines, and
licenses you have paid for or purchased. Yes, they had you by the pockets. If
you don’t believe it, read the 14th Amendment. See how ‘free’ you really are.
Ignorance of the facts led to your silence. Silence is construed as consent;
consent to be beneficiaries of a debt you did not incur. As a Sovereign People
we have been deceived for hundreds of years; we think we are free, but in truth
we are servants of the corporation.
“Congress committed treason against the People in 1871. Honest men could
have corrected the fraud and treason. But apparently there weren’t enough
honest men to counteract the lust for money and power. We lost more freedom
than we will ever know, thanks to corporate infiltration of our so-called
‘government.’ “Do you think that any soldier who died in any of our many wars
would have fought if he or she had known the truth? Do you think one person
would have laid down his/her life for a corporation? How long will we remain
silent? How long will we perpetuate the MYTH that we are free? When will we
stand together as One Sovereign People? When will we take back what has been
as stolen from the us?
“If the People of America had known to what extent their trust was betrayed,
how long would it have taken for a real revolution to occur? What we now need
is a Revolution in THOUGHT. We need to change our thinking, then we can
change our world. Our children deserve their rightful legacy — the liberty our
ancestors fought to preserve, the legacy of a Sovereign and Fully Free People.”

The District of Columbia Organic Act of 1871 aka “An Act to provide a Government for the District of Columbia (41st Congress, 3d Sess., ch. 62, 16 Stat. 419, enacted 1871-02-21) is an Act of Congress, which revoked the individual charters of the City of Washington, the City of Georgetown, and the County of Washington and created a new city government for the entire District of Columbia. The legislation effectively merged what had been separate municipalities within the federal territory into a single entity. It is for this reason that the city, while legally named the District of Columbia, is still commonly known as Washington, D.C. However, this act was abolished in 1874, and while the name did not change, the territorial Governor was replaced with a three-member Board of Commissioners appointed by the President. This system existed until 1974 when the District of Columbia Home Rule Act allowed for District residents to elect their own mayor.
