Invasion of the Admiral… the law of the King’s afterbirth.

Prehistoric man observed that the birth of every child was followed by the “birth” of a placenta.  Eventually, magical properties were attributed to this afterbirth.  Men began to believe that what was done to their placenta, would soon happen to them.  Men, for example, would bury the placenta of a male child on a battlefield so he would grow to be a good warrior; they would place the placenta of a female child on a hearth to make her a good food preparer.

Men took special care to secure the safety of their afterbirth, lest harm came to them.  Naturally, some men specialized in this service, such as witch doctors, medicine men, wizards and priests.  Such is the basis for the development of the concept of man’s soul.

This hullabaloo about man’s afterbirth provides the basis for something else.  Early in man’s history, the nostrum was developed that the well being of society depended on the health and happiness of its leader – whether known as witch doctor or medicine man, wizard or priest, king or emperor.  If he became sick, wounded or sad, women would go barren of child, the hunt would fail, or rains would not come in their season; simple-minded men simply could not conceive life on this planet without a well-fed and well-pleased magician, or whatever.  Accordingly, since a man’s well being depended on the safety of his afterbirth, the king’s afterbirth was the most precious of all.  Men easily saw that, to defend the king’s afterbirth, would assure abundant crops, fertile women and cattle, a successful hunt, victory in war, and a thousand other facts necessary for life to go on.[1]

Thus, men fashioned a staff with a small platform on its top; and on this platform, the king’s afterbirth was fastened.  This became known as the king’s standard: it led men to the battlefield where they fought furiously to defend it; for, they knew what consequences would follow if the king’s afterbirth were lost, injured or destroyed.[2]

Sometimes, the king’s birth string, or umbilical cord, would be substituted for his placenta.  Eventually, when his birth string became brittle – or to increase its security, different colored ribbons were substituted for his birth strings.  And, these ribbons, in time, became sheets of cloth.  So, here we have the birth of the military standard – or flag.

Naturally, a code of action evolved relative to this flag; which goes by many names today – such as law of the conqueror, belligerant, admiral, and several others. Where it prevails, it takes only a few days, or years, for it to acquire the peace of a graveyard.

This leads to a question, ‘Should we rely on the king’s afterbirth for protection of our rights, liberty and property… or due process of law?’

This brings another question, ‘Why should anyone care about the Admiral’s encroachment upon the land?’

There is very good reason: During all of English history, the crown and privilege holders always used admiralty jurisdiction to assess and collect coercive taxes.

American Founders restricted this jurisdiction to the “high seas” and “acts of war”. Their newly created government had no authority to collect coercive taxes within the states of the union.

It took American useless and criminal classes 70 years to breach this barrier, and begin assessing and seizing taxes within the states. It was done without an Article v amendment. This means that every federal internal tax since the Civil war has been assessed and collected without constitutional authority.

It also means that all who have been victimized by such taxes have a constitutonal basis to recover taxes wrongly taken – plus damages, according to ancient custom.
