One and three quarter centuries ago, a farmer and blacksmith named Philip Annett left the home he had built for his family in the forests of Upper Canada, armed with the only family rifle. Philip walked twenty miles in the snow to join other patriots, who together marched in arms to York, the capital, to overthrow the corrupt clique of crown judges, bishops and bankers who ran the country for their own profit.
Philip Annett was my great great great grandfather.
Like so many rebels and dreamers, Philip and his friends failed. The sovereign Republic on our soil envisioned by William Lyon McKenzie, Louis Papineau and the other patriots of 1837 did not come to pass. Their little army was attacked and dispersed, the leaders were hanged or deported, but Philip made it home to pass on to his children, and to me, the dream of liberty in a country frozen into a colonial tyranny.
Nearly two centuries later, the same clique of criminals still runs Canada: a Family Compact of offshore bankers, unaccountable judges and crooked politicians who soak our country and its people dry in the interest of that false and murderous entity called the crown of England and its funders. And so the time has come to complete the vision of our ancestors and take back our country from these murderous parasites, by establishing the Sovereign Republic of Kanata.
Today, we are better armed to establish that Republic, both in Canada and in England, now that the crown of England and its sponsor, the Church of Rome, have been lawfully convicted of crimes against humanity, and their authority has been disestablished. So-called crown and canon law are inoperative now, and therefore every judge, cleric, police officer, politician and soldier has been ordered to stand down from their office and oath of allegiance to the criminal cabal in London and in Rome, and to the convicted child killer known as Elizabeth Windsor and her murderous associates in the papacy.
We the People are the source of all sovereignty, all law, and all authority: and so we the people can establish once more the Republic of Equals that existed here in Canada among our different nations, when Europeans first encountered the indigenous peoples.
That Republic was enshrined in the Two Row Wampum treaty, signed between our indigenous and European ancestors. This treaty predated all so-called crown treaties, and established all people under the one great law of peace and equality that places the land and its wealth in common, for the good of all. We invoke this tradition as we gather to convene the constitution for a federated Republic of Kanata.
We also stand upon the common law of England that centuries ago outlawed the British monarchy, and established the People, not popes, kings or queens, as the lawful rulers of England and its commonwealth.
In the spring of 1649, the people in Parliament abolished the office of the British crown and made it a crime for any person to assume the title of king or queen of England. They did so with these words:
The Commons of England assembled in Parliament declare that the people under God are the origin of all just power … and have the supreme authority of the nation. Whatsoever is enacted and declared law by the Commons has the force of law, and all the people are included thereby, with or without the consent of the king.
– An Act to Establish the High Court of Justice, House of Commons, London, January 4, 1649
It has been found by experience that the office of a monarch in this nation holding such power in any single person is unnecessary, burdensome, and dangerous to the liberty, safety, and public interest of the people … Be it therefore an Act ordained by the present Parliament, that the office of a king or other monarch in this nation shall not henceforth reside in or be exercised by any one single person and that monarchy be dispensed with in its entirety, as the chief threat to the people’s well being.
– An Act Abolishing the Office of King, House of Commons, London, March 17, 1649
The fact that a military coup restored English monarchs to power in 1660 does not negate the standing authority of these laws of the English republic: the crown may be a de facto power but it is not a lawful or a legitimate one, neither historically nor lawfully: nor is it legitimate under the laws of God. For the rule of a single ruler over a people is blasphemy and idolatry, according to natural law, which places all people as one family of equals under the one God.
As the Biblical prophet Hosea declares,
“They have set up a King, says the Lord, but not by me: they have made princes, and I knew it not; from their gold and silver they have made idols, therefore for all these things, they shall be destroyed.”
Our common law traditions grant we the people the power to judge kings and popes, and all unlawful rulers, and bring them down from their false authority. As it is written in Psalm 149, which was invoked at the trial of King Charles 1 in 1649,
“Let God’s people be joyful in glory; let the high Judgements of the Lord be in their mouths, and God’s sword be in their hands, to execute justice against the rulers, and to bind their kings in chains, and their nobles with fetters of iron, so that they may execute upon them the judgement that is from God. This is the honour given to God’s people.”
Our disestablishing of the English crown and its sponsor in Rome, and our invoking of the Republic of Kanata under common law, is therefore a just and a lawful act, required and demanded under the laws of God and of man. It is in this spirit and with this authority that we are acting, in unison with common law patriots in England who are creating the same Republic in their land.
Our people and our nation are in grave danger today. We are caught in the jaws of an unaccountable police state posing as a democracy, with the blood of countless children on its hands. Our lands and resources are being bled dry for the profit of foreigners, our skies and soil and waters are being poisoned, and the existing courts do nothing to stop it, for they are corrupt private bodies serving the rich and denying justice to we the people. We must act now if there is to be a future for any of our children.
Patriots across Canada are gathering in Winnipeg on October 27, 2014 to win this future for all of us, at a convention to establish the Constitution for a Republic of Kanata, and to officially proclaim our sovereign independence from the crown of England and its corporate agents. But in every province and on many indigenous territories, the work to create that Republic has already begun: for our new nation is coming about: not through words, but by the active reclaiming of our lands and our laws by We the People.
That work begins with each one of you. So I ask you first to join with me in taking the following public and solemn Oath:
As a freeborn man/woman, I (your name), do hereby solemnly swear my allegiance to the sovereign Republic of Kanata, its laws and its Constitution, and I swear to actively establish and defend the Republic. I hereby and forever cast aside all of my previous personal or political allegiances and legal obligations to the crown of England and the Church of Rome, and to any other foreign power.
I take this Oath freely and unconditionally, without coercion, reservation or ulterior motive, according to my conscience and capacity as a free born man/woman. I pledge to stand in solidarity with and to defend all those who swear this Oath.
The existing laws and authority of Canada, and their officers, are now null and void, and have no authority over you. As citizens of the new Republic, you have the authority to establish your own common law courts where the real criminals can be tried and sentenced.
You have the right to take back what you and your family need to survive from the common treasury of our world that is given to all people to share and hold in common. And you have the obligation to stop paying taxes to the fraudulent criminal body known as the government of Canada and its puppet masters in London and Rome.
As free citizens of the Republic, join your local common law court, established under the Republic’s authority; join the local branch of the Republic, and share our program with your friends and families, and administer the Oath to them; and finally, come as a delegate to our constitutional convention between October 27-31 in Winnipeg.
Copies of our Program, the draft Constitution, the Oath and our citizenship identity cards can all be obtained through our central office by writing to email@example.com .
I stand today in the spirit and the faith of my great great great grandfather Philip Annett, and of all those who have struggled and died in bring about liberty in our land.
Let Kanata be what it was meant to be: a place of true liberty, equality and justice. I ask all of you to join us in establishing through our own actions the sovereign Republic of Kanata, invoking the authority and power of the divine law, and asking for the guidance and protection of every good soul and power, on earth and in heaven.
