Are You A Sovereign Citizen?

Governments never stop trying to find ways to cast legitimate dissenters in a negative light. In the 1990s when as the globalists began to play their hand in earnest (e.g. NAFTA, Waco, Ruby Ridge, etc.), anyone who spoke out against the international corridor highway system (NAFTA and CAFTA), was opposed to job-sucking free trade agreements and was opposed to the regionalization of the US into the North American Union was labeled as a “conspiracy theorist.” Anyone who saw a conspiracy in anything, any person, or any event, was labeled as being mentally ill.

In the last decade, the term conspiracy theorist began to give way to certain patriotic traits which no legitimate government should have had a concern with. Only this time, if one opposed anything that the government did, the person was labeled a domestic terrorist.

Most aware citizens will have no trouble remembering the upsetting contents of the MIAC Report which served to declare an individual a domestic terrorist if they supported Ron Paul, demanded the government follow the Constitution, was pro-Second Amendment, was a Libertarian, a Constitutionalist, a returning veteran or was opposed in any form to the Federal Reserve. Subsequently, the alternative, and truthful media, roundly criticized this anti-American document and slowly, but surely, the MIAC report faded from public view as it lost legitimacy.

The MIAC Report, Gone But Not Forgotten 

The newest globalist trick to quell dissent and subsequently violate the rights of legitimate government protesters is to hide under the guise of being labeled “THE SOVEREIGN CITIZEN.” Under no circumstances should an American identify themselves as a sovereign citizen. To do so, could have very dire consequences.

The term “sovereign citizen” is deceptive because in political discussions about who has the power in society, the term gets used quite often. For example, if the people are the sovereign, then the people have power over the government. If on the other hand, the government has power over the citizenry, it could be accurately said that the government is the sovereign. Yet, again, my strong advice to all Americans is to avoid using the term all together and in the following paragraphs, I detail why.

The Stacy Lynne Case 

Stacy Lynne is the beleaguered mother of a nine-year-old boy, who had her little boy stolen by a corrupt judge, Julie Kunce Fields, in retaliation for Stacy’s anti-Agenda 21 public presentations which were serving to slow down the ICLEI invasion of Fort Collins, Colorado. For her trouble, Stacy, without so much of an allegation of wrongdoing, lost total custody of her son was given to the biological father who, by all accounts, previously showed little interest in being a father to Jaden. The judge is a former consultant to the IMF and the World Bank. Field is a globalist and this was her first judgeship. She was brought in to silence Stacy by stealing her child in order to derail her anti-Agenda 21 activities. You can read about this heinous case here. The only negative that Field has ever written or said about Stacy is that Stacy Lynne is a sovereign citizen. This legal declaration first took place on December 21, 2011, the day Stacy lost custody of Jaden. Stacy read the court order, which severed her custodial rights to We Are Change Colorado, as Stacy noted that Field had declared her to be a “sovereign citizen.”

I have watched the video of this several times and I am still confused about what constitutes a sovereign citizen. At least I was confused until I recently read a police magazine which goes out to every police department in America in which they addressed what exactly constitutes a sovereign citizen.

The New Domestic Terrorist: A Sovereign Citizen 

As it turns out, labeling someone as a “sovereign citizen” is the 2013 version of the discredited MIAC Report which labeled Ron Paul supporters, Second Amendment advocates, returning veterans and people who support the Constitution as domestic terrorists.

The strategy is simple: if one criticizes the government in any form they can be labeled a sovereign citizen. And if the government can label one a sovereign citizen, then that citizen has no rights and ostensibly, the government can do what they will with that citizen.

This anti-dissident strategy takes America one step away from full implementation of disappearing American protesters under the NDAA for sovereign citizens. This is a very slippery slope and the government and its police agencies are fully committed to this strategy.

What Exactly Is A Sovereign Citizen? 

As one traces the origin of the term sovereign citizen, in its contemporary vernacular, the term gained its roots in a shoot-out following a routine traffic stop in Arkansas as it turned into an violent confrontation between police and a father-son pair of so-called “sovereign citizens.” According to the corporate-controlled media, this event, which occurred on July 1, 2010, ”brought attention to a secretive and dangerous subculture which believes American laws don’t apply to them.”

The federal government was quick to seize on this opportunity and bootstrap the term to any group that the federal government feels would oppose any of its policies. In short, if you do not like some aspect of government, you are now one the new domestic terrorists and should be subject to governmental control outside the bounds of constitutional protections.

Police Magazine, provide the first real comprehensive definition of what constitutes a sovereign citizen as they note that the crimes committed by sovereigns often include relatively minor offenses such as the manufacture of fraudulent license plates, registration cards, or currency (e.g. use of gold coins). So, in the first part of this definition, sovereign citizens are defined as essentially petty criminals. Wait a minute, we were told under the Bush administration that we had to give up our civil liberties so the government could protect us from terribly dangerous terrorists. Sorry DHS, I just don’t see how a petty criminal constitutes a national security threat. Further, the magazine stated that all of these people should be considered to be armed and dangerous and that the calling in of a SWAT team during routine traffic stops might not be an overreaction to the threat posed by sovereigns.

The police can further identify a dangerous sovereign individual if they complain about mortgage fraud, or banking fraud. Police Magazine notes that the tactics employed by “sovereigns” are not always violent. I had to read that last statement twice as I try and determine what is the extreme danger to society. The case in point here, would be Stacy Lynne’s opposition to Agenda 21 policies in Fort Collins, Colorado. The police are also cautioned to be on the lookout for words like “Indigenous,” “Sovereign,” “Diplomatic,” “Exempt,” or “Private Property” displayed on the personalized license plates.

Police officers are advised that Sovereigns will engage in willful terrorism because they may actually video-record their interactions with law enforcement officers. To the contrary, the courts have upheld citizens’ right to video the police. Police can expect to be further intimidated as some of these encounters are live-streamed via the Internet and watched by local like-minded sovereigns, and this could pose a threat a possible threat to police safety. So if one has a YouTube channel, they might be a sovereign citizen. Police are also cautioned to be aware of certain dangerous key words that sovereigns are likely to use such as “oath of office”, “traveling in a private capacity”, “domicile” and the “14th Amendment.”

“Sovereign citizen groups, with few exceptions and despite their differences, will choose to unite against their one common enemy: the government and its agents.” I thought our Founding Fathers encouraged future generations to oppose all forms tyranny emanating from the government. What did Jefferson say? Something like resistance to tyranny is obedience to God.


One would be wise to avoid being labeled with the new domestic terrorist term, sovereign citizen. Carried out to its extreme, as in the case of Stacy Lynne, a sovereign citizen is not something that one wants to be labeled as the term is bootstrapping all legitimate concerns about the government and virtually criminalizing dissent and protest. And with the NDAA hanging over American heads, admitting to being a sovereign citizen could be a very bad idea.

    To all who read this report, please read The Greatest Story Never Told by Albert Lynn Barcroft.
    This book will explain what, how and why your liberty was stolen from you with your consent.
    The article is not totally accurate. While the actions of the corrupt “officals” may be. Do not give up your freedom.

    That’s why you need to always have a rifle with a folding stock, loaded with the best steel core ammo with you at all times. When they move on you they will pick a time when you are most vulnerable. Show them you are not vulnerable at all.

    The shooting incident in Ark. was just across the MS. River from me. The two sovereign citizens murdered two pol ice officers in COLD BLOOD. They were stopped for a traffic offense when the 16 years old son of the man that was driving stepped out of the mini van and started shooting. The traffic stop was routine up until the kid started shooting a full automatic AK 47. This was not a petty offense! They fled the crime scene and were stopped in a Walmart parking lot west of the crime scene. They started shooting wildly without any regards to the safety of non enforcement that were nearby. The hero was a wildlife officer named Mike that rammed the van and stopped them from fleeing again. Two very fine men and law enforcement officers were murdered for no reason other that these two sub-humans thought the laws did not apply to them! They got what they deserved!

    When the bill of rights and constitution was being written by our founding fathers,do you see the word ‘citizen’ written any where,or do you see the word “the people” ,singular or plural.Be aware of government tricks folks,there is three different types of languages in the English language,Slang,Formal,and Legal.Legal language is totally different than formal,especially in court.I assure you,if you go to court as a ‘sovereign citizen’ you’re subject to their jurisdiction,if you remain in your sovereign capacity as ‘one of the people’ you’re under god’s law.Common law is the supreme law of the land,when in a court of record the tribunal is independent of the magistrate.The most important thing to point out folks,in order for their be a crime,there must be an injury,a victim,or contract,remember that.

    Dissent will cost you.

  • Baaah! Baaah! I was surprised to hear from the sheeple here. If you’re going to let fear of the government control you, what the heck are you doing here? I find the honesty refreshing. A sovereign citizen IS an enemy of the State. Know which side you’re on.

    • SKIP

      And the state, aka da gubmint, is the enemy of all free thinking citizens John, when the crocodile comes it will eat you as readily as a “sovereign citizen” How much federal income tax do you pay? How much of it goes to support parasites, our enemies, congressional perks (aka enemies) senate perks (aka enemies) muslim countries that hate us (as if any like us) think carefully before you answer, there will be a test later.

  • What neither this article or the government hate propaganda states clearly is that the people that consume the sovereign citizen ideology are well-meaning patriots who unfortunately don’t understand that you cannot fight legal battles in “the King’s Court” and expect them to play by your rules. The arcane legal theories of the sovereign movement are simply ignored by the government court systems; they proceed to impose their penalties on you regardless.

    If you are wealthy, and can afford to make a hobby of battling the government on their terms, then more power to you! But there are better things you could be doing with your money. If you are NOT wealthy, if you live from paycheck to paycheck, don’t play legal games with your wealth & liberty – especially your liberty!! You should be prepping: Get what you need for the rough times that you KNOW are coming!

    One last word about ‘sovereign citizens’. I say this as a state commander of militia. I have known some genuinely nice people, good people who are sov’s. They have a sincere interest in the law, and in applying law to MAKE themselves and the rest of us free. Their energies are wasted on failed legal theories and individual ‘cases’. They SHOULD be organizing into Jural Societies, to create a new justice system in America where the law is SIMPLE & PLAIN that any dolt can understand without having to hire a $500 an hour empty suit!! Jural Societies, Citizen Grand Juries, are the constitutional path to restoring the REPUBLIC with the 4th Continental Congress and the militias of the states. There’s your three separate but equal branches!

    However, the present ideology of the sovereign citizen movement is rooted in selfish motives rather than civic virtue. It is attracting crackpots and tin-foil-hatters. As a whole, as evidenced by some of the notable incidents mentioned in this article, the sovereign movement is creating MASSIVE damage to the credibility and the legitimacy of the patriot movement, and to the efforts of the Continental Congress & militias!!! So either they get on board with the program or they just freaking stop. Join, or get out of our way!

    It would be wonderful if all these aspiring legal eagles would agree to become part of a Continental Jural Society, partnered with the Continental Congress, and work with them and the militias. We need sharp minds! Follow the example of Dr. Edwin Vieira, J.D., who is the personification of legal scholarship in the patriot movement! Most of all, we need to put an end to the bull$#it drama with fake driver’s licenses, plates, bogus liens, ill-timed confrontations with the corrupt system!

    What is needed now is organization and planning – you know the revolution is coming. People are ready to put an end to tyranny and infringements on their essential liberties!! Prepare To Take America Back is the launchpad for this effort – their Facebook group page is: and the community page is at

    But bookmark THIS page, which is being set up soon. – This will be the main portal and hopefully up soon, barring any interference from the jackbooted thugs! will be the hub for several efforts;
    ** Prepare To Take America Back Volunteers; the grassroots organizing group. This ain’t your hockey momma’s tea party. This is the no-compromise, in-the-tyrant’s face, modern sons and daughters of Liberty!
    ** The United American Militia Advisory Council; a national ‘Committee of Safety’ providing the de-jure militias of the states voluntary standards for the operation of constitutional militia units. The Council also acts in an advisory & assistance capacity to help militias achieve best practices, grow their roster, and better interact with the public so everyone knows what the proper role and mission of the militia is. And since all Americans are automatically members of the unorganized militia at large, we all should know what we need to do to preserve liberty, in an organized way, so would be tyrants cannot subjugate us.
    ** The Fourth Continental Congress; delegates are needed so that a quorum can be achieved, so the 4CC can pick up where the Third Continental Congress left off several years ago. The 4CC will put the tyrants on notice, just as we did in 1776. They also have the responsibility of providing representative civilian oversight, commissioning officers of the militia and confirming the empaneling of Citizen Grand Juries. They will use the PTTAB website as a launching point for their organization.
