BECAUSE THEY DO NOT WORK FOR THE PEOPLE!

“Thus, a nation becomes divided into two very distinct parts, a docile sub-nation (great silent majority) and a political sub-nation. The political sub-nation [corporate government] remains attached to the docile sub-nation [the public], tolerates it, and leaches its substance until it grows strong enough to detach itself and then devour its parent.”
Most folks know that their city is incorporated. Even government employees do not deny this reality. However, most folks don’t know that their county and state governments are also corporations. In fact all government agencies are corporations as well. This is easy to verify by looking them up on Dun and Bradstreet.com.
The employees of all of these government entities gloss over this fact however, claiming they have to be a corporation to do business. The problem is that they can’t generate profit for their own corporation and be public servants at the same time. Conflicts of interest become the norm, not the exception, and the people lose representation, which is exactly what has happened. Eventually the people figure out that they are being fleeced.
The following demonstrates how government-corporations serve their own corporation first and foremost . . . at the expense of the general public. These government-corporations have essentially become parasites on the people they claim to serve.
1) CAFR accounts
Comprehensive Annual Financial Report accounts are common with corporate-government entities. These somewhat hidden accounts are often referred to as rainy day funds. The public has no control over the size of these funds or the way they can be used. Meanwhile many corporate-governments continue to pass their own ‘rules’ (statutes) and tax levies to increase their revenue stream.
2) Decide their own salaries
In most instances the corporate-government determines how much its employees are paid. They can also decide to create new jobs for their own institutions. As with all corporations, government corporations have adopted the “growth” paradigm.
3) Unlimited ability to create rules, fines and fees
When cities pass statutes (rules) that levy fees and fines, the general public is coerced into paying more for services they never requested. And, most municipal corporate charters do not include a limit on the number of new rules that can be created. These new rules don’t necessarily serve the best interests of the community. This rule making power encourages corruption as well. Rules and policies are established all of the time that benefit large corporations over small locally owned businesses.
4) Accept ‘political agenda’ grants (bribes)
The corporate-government also has the ability to sign contracts and accept money from the fourth (unconstitutional) branch of the federal government: the 450 agencies now listed on the Federal Register under the ‘administrative’ function of the Executive Branch. All of these so-called agencies are also for-profit corporations listed on Dun and Bradstreet.
A great example is the bogus CO2 global warming scam. Climate actions plans are being implemented throughout our country via federal grants. The American people were never consulted or asked to weigh in on this bankster driven “cap and trade scheme”, even though 31,000 independent American scientists (see The Global Warming Petition) have done their best to expose that there is no such thing as CO2 climate change. The fourth branch of the US government (corporation) is funding massive changes to our economy and lifestyles via the corporate-government-agency network.
Another good example is the establishment of “fusion centers” and militarized police forces. After 911, state, county and local governments took grants for the construction of a police state. The money was accepted and programs were instituted without any questioning of the ‘official’ 911 story which has been exposed as false for many years. See: youtube – Building 7 – Gone in 7
5) Eminent Domain
Corporate-governments claim the authority of “eminent domain”. They decide, without permission from the public, to acquire property from homeowners and sell it to commercial enterprises. Many times these profit driven actions are done to benefit friends and/or campaign contributors.
6) The two minute rule
The two minute rule is another great example of a non-representative corporate-government. Anyone who has attended local city council, county commissioner or school board meetings was most likely told that there would be time for public comment during the meeting. Commonly the public is told to hold their comments to two minutes due to “time constraints”. While the public attendees are allowed to speak for two minutes, they cannot get answers to any legitimate questions. The current structure does not allow the city council, the county commissioners or the school board members to engage in public discussions. This structure allows them to keep the details of their policies, motivations, and funding sources away from public scrutiny.
7) Sell-out contracts
Corporate-government employees can enter into contracts that actually harm the community and its population. The mayor and city council members in one Indiana town signed a contract to permit garbage from Chicago to be dumped in their community. The public was never consulted regarding the establishment of a new land fill in their backyard and yet they were forced to live with it.
8) Hire their own propagandists
Way too many government ‘entities’ hire their own public relations people. This allows these corporations to control what the public is told about their shady deals and put a spin on their clandestine activities to keep the public confused and uniformed.
9) Get free legal council
Each corporate government has access to attorney services. Their employees don’t have to pay for legal council out of their own pockets. This makes it much easier to protect themselves from liability when they engage in what the public would consider “wrong doing” or unlawful endeavors.
10) Use the Delphi Technique of manipulation
These corporate governments are prone to manipulating the people via the Delphi Technique. Facilitators are used at “public comment” events to present new policies and/or programs. However, the outcomes are generally pre-determined and open public discussion is avoided at all cost. Tough questions from the attendees are silenced.
11) City Manager and other city employees adopt policies independent of the elected City Council
As these corporate governments can write their own corporate charters they can make their own rules as to their chain of command. The public is not asked to vote on the terms of these charters.
12) Little or no liability (or remorse) for the harm their policies cause
Bad government policies can and do cause significant losses to local businesses. The people do not vote on these policies and the corporate-government is rarely required to reimburse the business men and women for the financial harm these policies cause.
13) Outsources jobs
The public has no input regarding the outsourcing of government jobs to out of state or multi-national corporations. When this occurs, more locals lose their jobs and the public has little or no ability to control the bad service and high costs they are then forced to live with.
14) Police are now hired guns for government-corporations
Law enforcement employees have become nothing more than ‘statute’ enforcers. Since 911, city and county governments across the country have accepted money from the criminals in Washington to build a ‘police state’. While the people expect them to protect and serve them, in actuality the police protect and serve the corporate governments FROM the people. And most are willing participants in the government’s latest obsession of surveilling the general population.
15) Codes, rules, and ordinances are written for “persons”
As these government ‘entities’ are corporations, which are dead legal fictions, they cannot do business with living men and women. According to the ancient laws of Hammurabi, only equals can contract, which only makes sense. People cannot contract with squirrels and living men and women cannot contract with the dead. Cornell University Law School’s Legal Information Institute defines a person as follows: “Legal person refers to a non-human entity that is treated as a person for limited legal purposes–corporations, for example.”
Per this definition, if you can read and understand this post, you are not a person.
What we have now is a counterfeit government doing business. Corporations CANNOT be governments as they are not real. They are just words on a piece of paper in a safe somewhere.
How can this travesty be turned around? Corporate-government employees need to do the following ASAP:
a) Download, burn to DVD and share “Why Can’t Chuck Get his Business Off the Ground”
b) Stop accepting grant/bribes
c) Pass no new rules, ordinances, regulations especially those based on bogus science like CO2 global warming.
d) Review the rules that they have already passed and start revoking those that punish local entrepreneurs-businesses or are completely unreasonable
e) Stop signing contracts that the public doesn’t vote on
f) Prohibit attorneys from writing laws designed to generate more income for their profession
g) When taking advice from attorneys on behalf of the CITY CORPORATION, make them put their advice in writing and sign it, so you can hold them accountable for the bad advice they keep on giving you.
h) Stop implementing Agenda 21 programs including “complete streets”.
i) Understand and avoid ‘conflicts of interests’, which have become rampant throughout the system
These steps won’t completely fix the problem, but they will get us moving in the right direction.

“In order to promulgate and enforce Criminal Laws to govern the SOVEREIGN public, government must be SOVEREIGN too, which is an accepted RULE of LAW derived from the, Ancient Law of Kings. Corporations are not and can never be SOVEREIGN. They are not real, they are a fiction and only exist on paper.”
Here is a sample notice for municipal employees regarding statutes and codes.
