Members of the Guardians of the Free Republics (GOTFR), a group dedicated to restoring the Constitutional sovereignty of individual states by reclaiming their rights as “Free American Republics”, issued warrants on March 29, 2010 to the governors of all fifty U.S. states.
In the warrant, a purported copy of which was obtained exclusively by Big 3 News, GOTFR members make a distinction between the incorporated States of the United States Federal Corporation, and fifty free republics of the United States of America, which they claim is provided for in the Constitution of 1787.
(Big 3 News has not been able to independently confirm the authenticity of the warrant document which we received from a viewer via email. On Saturday, April 3, we contacted one of the signatories to the document, Dr. Sam Kennedy, as well as the domain registrant of the group’s website, Clive Boustred, to request an interview and a copy of the governors’ letters. As of press time, we have not received a reply.)
The document calls upon the governors to void, or terminate, the fifty (50) political subdivisions of the United States Federal Corporation, and return to the free republics form of government whereby each republic’s existing Constitution would be sovereign.
Upon receiving the warrants, the governors are “free to resign within three days…to be replaced by the man or woman next in line to occupy such office.”
Any governor who chooses to accept the office of governor of “a de jure (in principle) state republic” instead of the “de facto” (in practice) office of Governor of their respective State corporation would be required to take the following oath:
“I, (name), do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support, preserve, defend and protect the Constitution of the (name of state, e.g. “New York” not the “State of New York”) republic and the Constitution for the United States of America republic, circa 1787, and that I will perform and fulfill all of the duties of the office of governor of this republic faithfully and impartially to the best of my ability and understanding, as a sacred action able blood-oath contract with the People of the (e.g. “New York” not the “State of New York”) republic, so help me God.”
Authorities from the FBI and the Department of Homeland Security on Friday sent out an intelligence note to law enforcement officials alerting them to the communication sent by GOTFR.
More than 30 governors from across the country publicly acknowledged receipt of the warrants, but did not discuss specific details other than they were called on to resign or be replaced.
“Quite frankly, I feel very well protected. I don’t feel personally threatened,” Ohio Governor Ted Strickland said in a recent interview with CNN. ”But I do think it ‘s sad that in our nation today we would have these kind of threats. You never know when some wrong-thinking person or some hate-filled group will carry out actions that could be harmful to individuals.”
Strickland called the warrants an 80-page “manifesto” that was allegedly mailed from Virginia. The FBI has said that while there was no specific threat linked to the letters, “”law enforcement should be aware that this could be interpreted as a justification for violence or other criminal actions.”
The warrant contains a number of orders to the governors, including:
The orders go on to ask for official state seals and other official communication to be replaced with the republic language.
The group’s designation of the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) as an “unlawful collection arm for the Federal Reserve System” is based on their belief that the free American republics have been under military occupation since 1861. That was the year the timeline for the Civil War began.
In addition, on April 19, 1933, Franklin D. Roosevelt is believed by some citizens to have violated Section 10, No. 1 of the United States Constitution when he removed the financial foundations from under the country. This was the date gold was no longer the currency of choice for payment of debts, and was replaced by the silver certificate and the Federal Reserve note.
“Various unlawful States of National Emergency having been declared and perpetuated without interruption since 1933 such that ‘freedoms and governmental procedures guaranteed by the Constitution have, in varying degrees, been abridged by laws brought into force by states of national emergency.”
The warrant references a report published by the 93rd Congress on November 19, 1973, called “Report of the Special Committee on the Termination of the National Emergency – United States Senate”.
National Emergency Powers are special powers made available to the President of the United States and may be exercised “in the event that the nation is threatened by crisis, exigency, or emergency circumstances,” according to a Congressional Research Service Report for Congress.
The Guardians of the Free American Republics contend that these so-called executive powers which are delegated to the President but should be reserved for Congress, “affect the lives of American citizens in a host of all-encompassing manners…to rule the country without reference to normal Constitutional processes.”
