Did You Marry the god of the State?
Excerpted from Satanic Counterfeits 2nd ed, ©2009 David Deschesne
A marriage license is a three-party contract between the man, woman, and the State known as an adhesion contract. An adhesion contract is one which is extremely one-sided, grossly favoring the State. From weakness in bargaining position, ignorance, or indifference, couples are willing to enter into the marriage transaction controlled by this lopsided legal document.
When a couple applies for a license from the State to marry, they are actually asking for permission to engage in the “unlawful” activity of marriage (License - a revocable permission to commit some act that would otherwise be unlawful - Black’s Law 7th ed). Because the State can regulate that which it licenses, by entering into a State-sanctioned franchise (marriage) as a married couple, a couple forfeits their rights to a private, sovereign marriage and any ownership/control of their children or property; as a result of the marriage license. Child Protective Services receives its full power and authority to seize children via the marriage license under the ancient legal doctrine of parens patriae. When a State-licensed married couple has a child, the Birth Certificate is the document the State uses to claim ownership of the child under its marriage contract. State ownership remains as long as that child lives, even after the age of 21. If you have a birth certificate, the State owns you, too.
Couples married under a state-sanctioned marriage license also give up 1/3 of their property to the state. Should one person die, the government, through the inheritance tax, will demand the surviving party to “buy them out” - usually a 28- 35% tax. Marriage licenses were never required prior to the early 1900s, also known as the “Devolutionary Period.” The only requirement for a legitimate marriage then was that the couple be married by an official minister of God, and place their intentions to marry in a public place, such as a church, parish, or town meeting house for all to see. That notice was then to be filed with the county clerk. No license, or certificate required.
History of Marriage in Maine
When Maine was first formed as a state in 1821, the act of marriage was much simpler and less evasive than it is today. There was no licensing scheme, no Child Protective Services, and, while the State did prohibit those types of marriages denounced in the Holy Bible, there was otherwise very little state interference. Town clerks merely certified a public notice of the marriage was duly placed prior to the event, then ministers and justices of the peace submitted a list of all married couples to the Clerk every April for all marriages of the preceding twelve months. The Clerk then logged the marriages into the public record, they never issued a license to marry and for almost 100 years, logged marriages without licenses.1
original marriage laws were similar in nature to ancient Roman civil law, where the government’s only interest in marriage was the fact that it was announced publicly. The ancient Roman government issued no certificates and played little part in the initial marriage agreement.2
Today, States have declared marriage to be an illegal, regulatable enterprise, much like fishing, hunting, and selling cars. All who wish to be married must be licensed before the State will acknowledge them as so.
Black’s Law Dictionary, 5th ed. (West, 1979) defines “Marriage License” as a “License or permission granted by public authority to persons who intend to intermarry.” Black’s 5th refers the term “intermarry” to “miscegenation” which it goes on to define as “mixture of races; marriage between persons of different races, as between a white person and Negro.”
This reference to licensing of intermarried couples has its roots in the Reconstruction Period of 1864-1880. During that time, the newly-freed black slaves were prohibited from marrying their white counterpart unless permission was granted to do so from the State government.
Twenty years after the publication of Black’s 5th ed., Black’s Law 7th edition (West, 1999) completely eliminates the phrase “intermarry” from its definition of Marriage License.
Even though weddings are conducted in a church setting with a providential backdrop, almost all pastors and preachers marry a couple with authority vested in them by the State, rather than God and make that proclamation at the end of every ceremony.3
The marriage license is a permission granted by the State to commit the “unlawful” act of marriage, in direct conflict with the U.S. Supreme Court’s definition of liberty. In 1923, the Supreme Court defined liberty as, among other things, “...the ability to freely marry, establish a home, and bring up children.”4
Today, couples are tricked into thinking they need a license to do those “unlawful” acts. That which the State licenses it can thereby regulate. The license is then converted into a certificate after the marriage takes place.5 A certificate is “a paper establishing an ownership claim.”6
The state of Maine transformed the passive act of the clerk certifying publication of marriage intentions to the active act of granting permission via the certificate in 1909 when the clerk was then authorized to hold the certificate for five days after intentions were filed with him and the marriage could ensue only after the certificate was issued.7 The withholding of a certificate was then a de-facto license. One of the main reasons the marriage certificate changed its character was the fact that the Panic of 1907 had just taken place and Senator Nelson Aldrich had been appointed to head the National Monetary Commission to ensure such panics never took place again. Senator Aldrich’s plan was ultimately realized in the Federal Reserve System of debt-based money we all suffer under today. Because the money system proposed was debt-based, the state and federal governments needed to have certificated property which produced wealth that they could pledge as collateral for notes in the upcoming debt money system. In 1903 only a few states had adopted a marriage license scheme.8 By 1935, all states required licenses except Maryland, which soon followed shortly thereafter.9
Child Protective Services
A certificate for a married couple is commercial paper that can be used to pledge the future expenditure of labor of the married couple against the State’s borrowed money is only half the equation. By entering into a State-sanctioned franchise (marriage) as a married couple, a couple forfeits their rights to a private, sovereign marriage and any ultimate control of their children or marriage-related property; as a result of the marriage license. Child Protective Services receives its full power and authority to seize children via the marriage license under the ancient legal doctrine of parens patriae. According to Black’s Law, 5th ed.; “The origins of the doctrine parens patriae and the law can be traced to medieval and late medieval English chancery courts where it played an important roll in maintaining the structure of feudalism. The King had a royal prerogative to act as guardian to persons with legal disabilities such as infants, idiots, and lunatics. Chancery, as an agent of the monarch, had a duty to maintain the orderly transfer of feudal duties from one generation to another and to insure that there would be someone available to perform these duties and the concept of parens patriae was usually invoked in connection with problems of property or guardianship.”
In today’s world, the Department of Health & Human Services functions as the Chancery, or agent of the monarch - which is the State - in orderly transferring the feudal duties of labor to generate a tax base to future generations. That tax base is known as the “full faith and credit” of the American people and is pledged against every bond (a state bond issue is a loan) the people or their representatives vote to approve.
When a State-licensed married couple has a child, the Birth Certificate is the document the State uses to claim ownership of the child under its marriage contract. State ownership remains as long as that child lives, even after the age of 21. If you have a birth certificate, the State owns you, too. Birth certificates, marriage certificates, and automobile Certificates of Title are just some of the commercial paper the State government uses to collateralize their debts to the banks for all of their bond issues. These certificates are serial numbered so the banks can more easily track them and all conform to the rules of negotiable instruments as outlined in the Uniform Commercial Code.10
The items included on a warehouse receipt, as described at §7-202 of the Uniform Commercial Code, the law governing commercial paper and transactions, which parallel a birth or marriage certificate are:
-the location of the warehouse where the goods are stored...(residence)
-the date of issue of the receipt.....("Date issued")
-the consecutive number of the receipt...(found on back or front of the certificate, usually in red numbers)
-a description of the goods or of the packages containing them...(name, sex, date of birth, etc.)
-the signature of the warehouseman, which may be made by his authorized agent...(municipal clerk or state registrar's signature)
Birth/marriage certificates now appear to at least qualify as "warehouse receipts" under the Uniform Commercial Code. A warehouse receipt, which is considered a document of title, may be a negotiable instrument and is often used for financing with inventory as security.11
Since the U.S. went bankrupt in 1933, all new money has to be borrowed into existence. All states started issuing serial-numbered, certificated “warehouse receipts” for births and marriages in order to pledge us as collateral against those loans and municipal bonds taken out with the Federal Reserve's banks. The “Full faith and Credit” of the American people is said to be that which backs the nation's debt. That simply means the American people's ability to labor and pay back that debt. In order to catalog its laborers, the government needed an efficient, methodical system of tracking its property to that end. Humans today are looked upon merely as resources - “human resources,” that is.
Licensed married couples have, in effect, been pledged as chattel to the banks for the State’s and Federal Government’s debts. They are the ones who gave Child Protective Services permission to steal their children. Since the State can regulate that which it licenses, Child Protective Services has mushroomed into a money-making machine by snatching kids and receiving millions of federal dollars for them. In most cases, Child Protective Services has no interest in reuniting families because by keeping the family unit off balance, under constant worry and financial drain, the people of a state are more easily controlled, taxed and herded like sheep by the governmental power. A State which has strong, responsible families with good morals, an understanding of right and wrong, and the time to focus on solutions to State abuses would never be able to get away with the massive confiscatory taxation and licensing schemes perpetrated against the citizenry today.
Child Protective services receives its authority to kidnap children from the child’s parents the moment a marriage license was applied for and granted. The child is placed in a guardian/ward relationship with the state where the parents function merely as “custodians.” That custodial relationship may be terminated by the authorizing state agency whenever it declares the child is not being raised according to the standards established by the State. The Maine CPS can sue the parents on behalf of the child based on Rule 17 (a) of the Maine Rules of Civil Procedure which states, in part; “An executor, administrator, guardian, bailee, trustee of an express trust, a party with whom or in whose name a contract has been made for the benefit of another, or a party authorized by statute may sue in that person’s own name without joining the party for whose benefit the action is brought.”
So, Maine (as with any other State of their licensed married couples) can sue on behalf of the child without using the child’s name because the parents gave them guardianship over their child with the marriage license making the State an “administrator” of the marriage. None of the States had a Child Protective Services protecting our children for at least the first 140 years of their existence, because assault on a child was already illegal and dealt with by the County Sheriff. If a child needed to be removed to a safer environment, he was brought to one of many privately funded homes which had to compete for money from the private sector. This competition forced the homes to maintain extremely high standards and, due to the limitation of funds, resolving family problems and reuniting the child with his family was of primary importance - unlike today’s State-administered system of bureaucratic red tape and drugging programs that will damage a child for the rest of his or her life and ultimately alienate them from their family.
Marriage licenses were never required prior to the early 1900s, also known as the “Devolutionary Period.” The only requirement for a legitimate marriage was that the couple be married by an official minister of God, and place their intentions to marry in a public place, such as a church, parish, or town meeting house for all to see. Then, a ceremony would be held in front of at least two witnesses on the date indicated on the public notice. That notice was then to be filed with the county clerk. No license, or certificate was required. In that respect, the couple gave notice, got married, then went to the government to let them know of the fact. Nowadays, they have been taught to go to government first, ask for permission to marry, then after license has been granted, get married.
However, Maine still authorizes those in the Quaker communities and similar religious organizations to marry according to their own rules, without a marriage license, and simply record the act of marriage with the town clerk.
All couples considering marriage should decide in advance if they wish to form a union under God, or under man. Now that the facts regarding man’s plan have been established, a couple can make a more educated decision.
