COLOR OF LAW
COLORING the CONSTITUTION
THE CONSTITUTION IN LIVING COLOR
No one will dispute this fact: This Constitution was written in a secret Constitutional Convention. No attempt was ever made to discover all the secrets of the Constitution until now. The Constitutional Coloring Book will allow you to see what has been hidden within the Constitution for more than 220 years. The application of a little color will magically draw out every secret that has been buried in this venerable document. The truth will finally come out—drawn out by you.
Here are just a few secrets that will be revealed to you:
All you know about the Constitution is what you have been told and what you have been told is all wrong. Government is broken and can’t be fixed because no one knows what the government law that put it together really is. We can all agree that unconstitutional laws are void—what can be done with an unconstitutional Constitution?
George Washington appointed himself President of the United States by taking the oath of Office of President of the United States. In that oath Washington promised to "preserve, protect and defend" the Constitution of the United States. George Washington presided over the Constitutional Convention, so we can be sure that he knew "preserve, protect and defend" does not mean "to support." The Article VI oath "to support this Constitution" means to adopt "this Constitution," and no President of the United States or member of Congress has ever taken an oath "to support this Constitution." An unconstitutional Constitution is a constitution that is not "this Constitution."
The Constitution of the United States is an inventory of the territory and other property belonging to the United States of America. The Constitution of the United States is simply an unconstitutional Constitution, because it is not "this Constitution."
Your ability to read is all that will survive a year after you end your formal education. Unless you have been trained to be a mathematician, scientist or engineer, how you think will depend on what you see and what you listen to. George Washington made it impossible for most people to see the Office of President, Office of President of the United States and President of the United States of America as three different Offices. All education in America perpetuates the melding of the Presidents into one man and as a consequence written law has been perverted into what the judiciary says it is.
Because you have learned to read the way government wants you to read, the folklore of the Constitution persists as written slogans. The phrase: "the supreme Law of the Land" is repeated everywhere until the Constitution is believed to be the law above all law everywhere. The Constitution, as black letter law, is the supreme law for government and the land government can govern but it isn't law for people and the land they own. The Constitution binds the States of the Union, but it isn't the law for the President of the United States and the Congress, because not one person in government has ever sworn an oath "to support this Constitution," as required in Article VI of the Constitution.
Written law must be reserved for the exclusive use of government, so it is written with substantial limitations as to persons and most important—territory. Government makes written laws for those who consent to be governed. The government secret? You don’t have to consent to be governed. You can govern yourself—you can preside over your own life and be your own President.
Reading in black and white and being told what you have read is over. The Constitution is about to get a color makeover and you are going to apply the colors.
You are, now, going to learn how to read and understand the correct and original intent of the Constitution by the application of a little living color. The most important fact you will learn about the Constitution is that it is not about you nor is it about any place where you will likely live.
The Constitution adds some embellishments to two existing governments: First, a government for the Land of the inhabitants and settlers of the Northwest Territory and any future federal territory and Second, an expansion of the government of the States under the Articles of Confederation.
What are the United States the President of the United States is President of? When the Conventions of nine States established the written Constitution, it bound the States ratifying to the Constitution, but it would take an oath to bind the Officers. George Washington and his cohorts found a way to avoid that obligation.
The government of the federal territory has been underway as a property management system. This is the President of the United States’ Administration. He is administering the territory and other property belonging to the United States of America. He is charged with oversight duties involving the Bills enacted by Congress so we know that both the President of the United States and the Congress of the United States are involved in the administration of the territory and other assets belong to the United States of America. The President of the United States is an appointive Officer who serves at the pleasure of the Congress of the United States. The person who holds the Office of President appoints the President of the United States.
The Confederacy of the United States of America was initiated in 1777 and fully ratified on March 1, 1781, when Maryland became the thirteenth State of that Union.
Neither government should be capable of governing a person like you, who is neither an inhabitant or settler on federal territory nor are you a State of the "more perfect Union." Millions have volunteered to be governed as inhabitants and settlers in federal territory though they lived elsewhere.
Through the miracle of public education and media propaganda the Constitution has been contorted and contrived as the salvation of freedom here and abroad. That fraud has gone on too long. Internet access will allow you check and re-check every important detail of the coup d' etat of American government by a few rich white men led by George Washington. You will re-create the blueprint for that government made in secret 220 years ago and you will make it your own by coloring it according to the colors you pick. You can pick your first three colors by coloring these words: Legislative, Executive and Judicial any color of your choice. We will call these colors: The Myth of The Separation of Powers Palette.
Before you dismiss the Constitutional Coloring Book as childish, understand that within a few minutes we will prove the President of the United States to be a legislative Officer and the Chief Justice to be a non-judicial Officer. As the first President, George Washington chose himself to be President of the United States, by taking the oath in Article II Section 1 Clause 8. You’ll miss all that and more, if you drop out of my constitutional law school now.
You can use anything you want to color your Constitution; you can even use your computer. You just want to make sure you can always see the words of the Constitution through the colors you picked. Once you learn to color "this Constitution" yours, you will never be tricked by government again, and you will always be free.
We begin with the Preamble to this Constitution:
We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.
Be vigilant, the Constitution was written in secret by lawyers. Whenever lawyers get together someone loses something. Whenever a lot of lawyers meet in secret a lot of people are going to be losers. On September 17, 1787 the date the Constitution was submitted to the States, for approval by at least nine State Convention, the only "United States" were the ones that had been joined together to form the Confederacy known as the United States of America and the States of the Northwest Territory.
The "People of the United States" were in the beginning America’s politicians and would include only those eligible to vote. This is not an auspicious beginning for a government of a free people, but as you will learn it was not meant to be a transparent government and has never become one. Real people have been rightly suspicious of the Congress of the United States from the beginning. Coloring the Constitution will reveal its contradictions only knowledge of all the Organic Laws of the United States of America will explain them. The Organic Laws that precede the Constitution of September 17, 1787 are: the Declaration of Independence, the Articles of Confederation and the Northwest Ordinance of July 13, 1787.
The President of the United States will be shown to be a legislative and administrative Officer for the Congress of the United States and the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of the United States, who must preside at the impeachment of the President of the United States will be shown to be without judicial power. The President of the United States is to be the executive officer of a place where Congress will rule by the exclusive power of legislation. The United States is a place where the President of the United States secretly serves at the pleasure of the Congress of the United States, because there is no set term of office for him. Residence in the executive mansion, the White House, serves a limitation on the term of the President of the United States. When a new President Elect takes the oath of Office to be President of the United States and chief administrator for Congress he pushes the old President of the United States out of the White House.
The phrase "We the People of the United States" will be known for the company it keeps. It tells the exact truth and the unwary are drawn into its magical spell of being everything and almost nothing. At one time the United States was everything the thirteen original States were not. The Constitution created the House of Representatives, so that the people of the original thirteen States could elect Representatives who would make laws for places like the Northwest Territory. The people of the United States in the Northwest Territory could also vote for Representatives, who could debate in Congress but not vote.
"We the People" is the subject of the sentence called the Preamble, which serves as an introduction and title. The "W" in "We" is capitalized because it begins the sentence. The "P" in "People" is capitalized to show that these "People of the United States" are not the "one People" of the Declaration of Independence, who are unique because they had been relieved of any Political Bands which have connected them with another." "The People of the United States" once were of the "one People" who were unconnected to the British Crown and were then politically re-connected to the Articles of Confederation and the confederacy known as the United States of America. Such a connection could not be made by ordinary people, as the United States of America was a confederacy of independent State governments.
The "People of the United States" are the few special people organized in an effort "to form a more perfect Union" consisting of the first 13 political States and the Northwest Territory divided into Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, Michigan and a part of Minnesota, destined to become States of the Confederacy some time in the future. The "People of the United States" are the people politically connected to the new Union and are identified as Citizens of the United States in "this Constitution."
Every time special middle of a sentence capitalization is used in the Constitution it signifies a special use of the word capitalized. We will use this same kind of capitalization in the Constitution Coloring Book for all the important words taken from the engrossed Constitution for the United States of America.
We will also note the absence of capitalization of the word "people" in the Bill of Rights to further your understanding of the Preamble "People" as Citizens, electors, aspirants for public Office and actual Office holders. Color the "People of the United States," Citizens, Electors and Office holders the same color. The people of the states are the inhabitants of the Articles of Confederation and Constitution. Color the people and inhabitants free of government. Color them the same color.
The non-political people of the states, the inhabitants of the Articles of Confederation, were aware that Congress had power to make laws and taxation for the People of the Northwest Territory, because the territorial government had no authority to tax. Article IV of the Northwest Ordinance of July 13, 1787 states that the inhabitants and settlers of the Northwest Territory shall be subject to pay part of the federal debt and a proportional part of the expenses of government. The inhabitants of the states of the Confederacy feared the Federalists would take control of the federal government and assert power over the states. They wanted to be certain Congress would not try to make laws for them, so they demanded a Bill of Rights. What the people got were rights that could only be asserted outside of federal territory. The people had underestimated Congress and its legislative accomplices, the President of the United States and Chief Justices appointed by him. Within a short time, Congress would enact excise taxes on carriages and distilled alcohol. Congress had no authority to tax outside federal territory. The tax on carriages made no reference any geographical territory. The excise tax on the distillation of alcohol only applied within the United States.
Though not officially part of the Constitution, the Preamble is very important because it explains that this Constitution is for the United States of America. The phrase, "We the People of the United States" identifies those persons in the States and Northwest Territory who are to participate in the government created by the Constitution. Before the 14th and 15th Amendments only Electors could vote these were the Citizens of the States. The "United States" was the name of the new Union of federal territory and the original thirteen States of the Confederacy. Citizens in federal territory could vote, but they could not elect Representatives who could vote in Congress.
The Northwest Ordinance of 1787 is part of the Organic Law of the United States of America. That Ordinance established the power of the United States in Congress assembled to make laws and impose taxation within federal territory like the Northwest Territory. The special People of the Preamble are the People of the States who are going to participate in the establishment of a government for the Northwest Territory by voting for the ratification of the Constitution for the United States of America. The People of the Northwest Territory who are to be governed by a territorial government and the Congress of the United States are also part of "We the People."
The most important secret kept hidden in "legislative Powers herein granted" can only be applied within the United States, which is all the territory like the Northwest Territory. The People of the federal territory had rights based upon a compact made with the original thirteen States of the Articles of Confederation. Those rights were contained in the Northwest Ordinance of July 13, 1787:
It is hereby ordained and declared by the authority aforesaid, That the following articles shall be considered as articles of compact between the original States and the people and States in the said territory and forever remain unalterable, unless by common consent, to wit:
There followed 6 Articles listing the rights of the People of the United States in the Northwest Territory. Those rights ranged from religious freedom, the abolition of slavery and most important that at least three States were to be formed from the Northwest Territory. All the rights and the promises of Statehood were the subject of the compact made between the States of the United States of America and the People of the United States in the Northwest Territory. As admission into the Confederacy known as the United States of America, was the subject of the compact within the Northwest Ordinance, the Constitution for the United States of America was to prohibit entry into any other Confederation. The Northwest Ordinance of July 13, 1787 made the entire Territory part of the Confederacy.
Go to Article I Section 10 and Article VI and color the word: "Confederation," a color that will denote the Union of federal States. The Articles of Confederation created the United States of America, so claims that the Articles have been repealed or replaced are totally in error. Article I Section 10 prohibits the territorial Union States from entering into any new Confederation. When the Northwest Ordinance of July 13, 1787 was enacted the States that were to be formed from that territory were made part of the Confederacy. Admission of a territorial State was not an automatic admission into the Confederacy. A new State was admitted into the Confederacy when its State Legislature selected two Senators and those Senators were accepted by the Senate. The new Union is called the "United States," but there is no permanent power or authority in that name. Every House of Representatives lasts only two years, while the Senate is in continual session under the Articles of Confederation.
The People of the Preamble are different from the "people" of the Bill of Rights. The people of the Bill of Rights are the people of the original thirteen states. These people had unalienable rights, everything sought by the People of the Preamble, but they thought they needed the protection of the Bill of Rights. The first ten amendments to the Constitution were supposed to keep Congress from making laws for the people. That has not happened, so The Constitutional Coloring Book was created to teach the secrets of the Constitution. The Congress of the United States makes laws for the Government of the United States and the federal territory and pretends that those laws apply outside the government and federal territory.
Color the "We the People of the United States" in the earth color of your choice to help you remember that the "People" come from the federal territory known as "United States" that is part of America. The earth colored "United States" is not the political "United States." Confusing the two will keep you from understanding the "Constitution for the United States of America" and the "Constitution of the United States." It is the People of the political United States that form the State Conventions that ratify the Constitution. Go to Article II Section 1 Clause 7 and color "the Constitution of the United States," the same earth color as "We the People of the United States."
Color "this Constitution for the United States of America" blue to represent the "United States" as a political thought. "This Constitution for the United States of America" is the one you will be coloring. "This Constitution" was created in secret, so that the government could tell the people what the Constitution meant. We will have to color it, so we can get it back to how it started its existence. Color "this Constitution" blue and the other Constitution of the United States an earth color, so you will remember that "the Constitution of the United States" is not "this Constitution."
The "United States" and the "United States of America" have different meanings, as you will discover, by coloring "this Constitution for the United States of America." You may use any color you like to represent the non-material United States, but you can't use that color for anything else. As you color the words in the Constitution, you will be able to color the "United States" every time it appears.
All legislative Powers herein granted shall be vested in a Congress of the United States, which shall consist of a Senate and a House of Representatives.
COLOR THE PRESIDENT AND CHIEF JUSTICE IN A LEGISLATIVE HUE
The names given to the Offices found in the Constitution are only labels. These are the Presidents of Article I in order of their appearance:
It is appropriate that these Presidents appear in Article I of this Constitution for the United States of America. Article I begins, "All legislative Powers herein granted shall be vested in a Congress of the United States, which shall consist of a Senate and House of Representatives." The Constitution requires that every Bill passed by Congress be presented to the President of the United States for his approval or return together with his objections. The Constitution specifically names the President of the United States and not the President of the United States of America or the President as the Officer who has the power to approve or to demand reconsideration in accordance with his objections. Color the President of the United States and the Office of the President of the United States legislative.
Just as soon as you are sure that the Officers you find are Article I Legislative Officers, color them with the legislative color you have picked.
Color the members of Congress with the color you have picked to represent the lawmakers. Senators and Representatives will be the same color.
It should be easy to say that the President of the United States, Vice President of the United States and Chief Justice of the United States are all Officers of the legislative branch because that is where they are found. It is not easy to say the President and Vice President of the United States and the Chief Justice are legislative officers because that is not what is taught in every school.
The first President, George Washington, was elected President by the Article II Presidential Electors. When you color the Office of President in Article II you will color that one Office of President with an executive color you have picked. You cannot color an Office of President of the United States of America because there is no such Office mentioned anywhere in the Constitution. The first sentence of Article II vests executive Power in a President of the United States of America. The second sentence refers to the occupant of the Office and not to any Office of President of the United States of America. The second sentence makes clear that the election of President would also elect the President of the United States of America. You can use your computer’s search function to find the Office of President of the United States in Article I and Article II and the Office of President in Article II. The President of the United States gets a legislative hue and the Office of President gets an executive tint.
Although he was properly elected President, George Washington chose not to take the oath as President of the United States of America or President, because his election was too early. Washington was elected February 4, 1789, before anyone in America could satisfy the 14 years residency within the United States requirement. Of course, this was all a subterfuge. Washington had no intention of taking the Article VI oath "to support this Constitution." The plan had always been to take over the government by creating one from scratch using the legislative power.
The Constitution grants the President power to name Ambassadors, public Ministers, Consuls, "Judges of the supreme Court and all other Officers of the United States, whose Appointments are not herein otherwise provided for." The Office of President of the United States is one of the Offices "whose Appointments are not herein otherwise provided for."
He shall have Power, by and with the Advice and Consent of the Senate, to make Treaties, provided two thirds of the Senators present concur; and he shall nominate, and by and with the Advice and Consent of the Senate, shall appoint Ambassadors, other public Ministers and Consuls, Judges of the supreme Court, and all other Officers of the United States, whose Appointments are not herein otherwise provided for, and which shall be established by Law; but the Congress may by Law vest the Appointment of such inferior Officers, as they think proper, in the President alone, in the Courts of Law, or in the Heads of Departments.
The advice and consent of Senate is a condition to any appointment by the President. Washington said nothing to no one. He took the oath of Office of President of the United States as if was the actual oath of Office of President. Remarkably, not one person has ever questioned the process. George Washington took command as President of the United States and Congress began to build a statutory government around the legislative President of the United States set the precedent for every President elected by the Electors to claim the Office of President of the United States by taking the oath in Article II Section 1 Clause 8:
"I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the Office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my Ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States."
An oath is a solemn appeal to God to witness one’s determination to tell the truth or keep a promise or the words of the promise itself. The oath of Office of the President of the United States is his promise to do his duty. Color the legislative duties of the President of the United States in Article I. History records that George Washington took the oath to faithfully execute the Office of President of the United States on April 30, 1789 by placing his left hand on a Bible and adding "So Help Me God" to the oath. Do you see new duties in the oath? If you do, what kind of duties are they: legislative, executive, or judicial? Does placing the oath of the President of the United States in Article II cause confusion? What color are you going to make the oath of the President of the United States?
A basic principle of American government is the separation-of-powers doctrine. Before the Revolutionary War, George III held all three government powers and he ruled America. The duties of all the Officers in Article I are legislative, so the persons who occupy them can have no other duties.
Since Washington, no President has agreed to be President or President of the United States of America by taking the Article VI oath to support this Constitution.
Article I Section 7 Clause 2: Every Bill which shall have passed the House of Representatives and the Senate, shall, before it becomes a Law, be presented to the President of the United States; If he approve he shall sign it, but if not he shall return it, with his Objections to that House in which it shall have originated, who shall enter the Objections at large on their Journal, and proceed to reconsider it.
More evidence that the President of the United States is a legislative Officer is found in Article I Section 7 Clause 3:
"Every Order, Resolution, or Vote to which the Concurrence of the Senate and House of Representatives may be necessary (except on a question of Adjournment) shall be presented to the President of the United States; and before the Same shall take Effect, shall be approved by him, or being disapproved by him, shall be repassed by two thirds of the Senate and House of Representatives, according to the Rules and Limitations prescribed in the Case of a Bill."
Again, it is the President of the United States who is to be presented with "every Order, Resolution, or Vote for his approval or disapproval. The other Presidents of the Constitution are not given these legislative duties. Color this President of the United States the same color as the Senators and Members of the House of Representatives.
Article I Section 3 Clause 4 makes the Vice President of the United States President of the Senate who can vote to break a tie. The next clause confirms the Vice President to be a legislative officer of the Senate: "The Senate shall chuse their other Officers and also a President pro tempore, in the Absence of the Vice President, or when he shall exercise the Office of President of the United States." The Vice President of the United States being a legislative member of the Senate makes the Office of President of the United States legislative.
The President of the United States is referred to as the President only once, in Article I Section 7 Clause 2:
If any Bill shall not be returned by the President within ten Days (Sundays excepted) after it shall have been presented to him, the Same shall be a Law, in like Manner as if he had signed it, unless the Congress by their Adjournment prevent its Return, in which Case it shall not be a Law.
The only President, who is part of the legislative branch and who is granted legislative powers is the President of the United States. Color the President of the United States legislative.
Impeachment is the legislative process that can result in the removal from Office any Officer of the government from his or her Office. The Power of Impeachment is the authority to accuse an Office holder of misconduct. No specific misconduct is required by Article I:
Article I Section 2 Clause 5: "The House of Representative shall chuse their Speaker and other Officers; and shall have the sole Power of Impeachment."
If an Office holder is accused of some official misconduct and does not resign that Office, the Senate will act like judges and try the impeachment.
Article I Section 3 Clause 6: "The Senate shall have the sole Power to try all Impeachments. When sitting for that Purpose, they shall be on Oath or Affirmation. When the President of the United States is tried, the Chief Justice shall preside: And no Person shall be convicted without the Concurrence of two thirds of the Members present.
CHIEF JUSTICE OF THE UNITED STATES
The only duty imposed on the Chief Justice in the Constitution is the obligation to preside over the impeachment of the President of the United States. The duty to preside at the trial of the impeachment of the President of the United States is a non-judicial duty, according to Article I Section 3 Clause 7:
Judgment in Cases of Impeachment shall not extend further than to removal from Office, and disqualification to hold and enjoy any Office of honor, Trust or Profit under the United States: but the Party convicted shall nevertheless be liable and subject to Indictment, Trial, Judgment and Punishment, according to Law.
The Chief Justice is charged with a non-judicial duty and a title that excludes the Office holder from the class of persons who might be qualified for judicial Office, Judges. A Chief Justice is not a Judge, therefore, color the Chief Justice legislative.
