Puttin’ on the Writs! National Liberty Alliance Files Mandamus Documents


For those not aware, John Darash and his teams at the ‘National Liberty Alliance’ have been writing and issuing the documentation necessary to free us from the corruption and illegal tyranny of the dark cabal—the imposters posing as our ‘government’.

The “writ mandamus” documents have now been issued, and there are many of them to cover various aspects of the current “illegal” system.

I love this part:

This document is not for interpretation by BAR attorneys; “Laws are made for men of ordinary understanding and should, therefore, be construed by the ordinary rules of common sense. Their meaning is not to be sought for in metaphysical subtleties which may make anything mean everything or nothing at pleasure.” – Thomas Jefferson to William Johnson, 1823 ME 15:450. All respondents took an oath to uphold and protect the Constitution and therefore should understand these documents; if not learn or resign your post.

I’ve discussed this before but if you’re not aware, the ORIGINAL 13th Amendment to the US Constitution—before it was slipped out by the corrupt parties—stated that no one of “nobility” or individuals of title were to be part of the government. That referred at that time to those such as “esquire”, which were barristers, solicitors, lawyers, attorneys at law.

We know why that was intended to be part of the Constitution, and why it was removed. Most of the US government we interact with are lawyers, and they are responsible for drafting up documents, bills and laws that only they can understand and are far too large for our representatives to want to read in full, and they use a language that has an entirely different meaning than we lay people were taught.

They have corrupted the system, and we didn’t realize it. But now we know, and the illegalities of government are being addressed.

They pass laws to control us; we are playing by their rules. We’re taking them down legally—and peacefully, and this just may be our saving grace.

The corrupt courts are being served, and now the Common Law Grand Juries are in place to take the criminals to task—thanks to people like John Darash and his teams who have put years of work into this and seem to have pulled a rabbit out of a hat. I don’t know how they did this in the short time they’ve had. They must eat, sleep and breathe this stuff.

It’s incredible what they have accomplished, and I heartily applaud them for their dedication. The People of the Republic of the United States owe them a debt of gratitude. I trust other countries are following suit.

Legal documents have never been interesting for most of us to read (by design), but I think you’ll find these vastly different from what you might expect. They speak our language. Here’s a sample:

                                              LIBERTY RISING

The purpose of this Mandamus is to expose foreign and domestic tyrants posing as Americans that have infiltrated our government at all levels in a concerted effort to overthrow the fifty governments of the united 40 States by seizing their seat of power our Federal City a/k/a Washington DC. Thereby these tyrants have covertly erected a system which has conscripted vast human and material resources into the building of a tightly knit, highly efficient machine that combines military, diplomatic, intelligence, economic, scientific, political operations and through courts of fiction, contrary to the authority by which they claim, Article I Section 8 clauses 17 and 18, prevent the execution of the Law of the Land resulting in the enslaving of the 45 sovereign People of America;

I find this terribly exciting. We’re puttin’ on the writs!

Here is an excerpt from the writ mandamus for “Subversion”.

On June 6, 2015 We the People filed Writ Mandamus concerning subversion revealing Jade Helm, a Trojan-horse to take America, and exposing foreign and domestic tyrants, posing as Americans, who have infiltrated our government at all levels in a concerted effort to overthrow the fifty governments of the united States. These tyrants have seized their seat of power (our Federal City a/k/a Washington DC) and thereby have covertly erected a system which has conscripted vast human and material resources into the building of a tightly knit, highly efficient machine that combines military, diplomatic, intelligence, economic, scientific, political operations; through courts of fiction, contrary to the authority by which they claim (Article I Section 8 Clauses 17 and 18), prevent the execution of the Law of the Land resulting in the enslaving of the sovereign People of America;

“Now is the time to pay attention, take a stand and prevent these tyrants from building their dark cities. Become empowered. Read the Writs because we must “educate and inform the whole mass of the people… They are the only sure reliance for the preservation of our liberty.” Thomas Jefferson; and then join NLA as we take this battle to the courts and our federal city.”

If you can do nothing else, I heartily encourage you to take part in this battle. Take their advice and read the writs. It’s your duty as an American citizen of the Republic, and it’s truly interesting reading. Share them!

One of our readers is deeply involved in the NLA and shared a link to an upcoming interview segment. Looking forward very much to listening on Saturday.  ~ BP

James Gilliland interviews my partner and I on his “As You Wish” radio show Saturday night 6/13/15 8pm PST and it is all about what to do and what is being done by National Liberty Alliance. NLA is making huge strides and the fraudulent court system is freaked. The Joint Chiefs of Staff have “The Unified Common Law Grand Jury” mandamus documents on Jade Helm as well.

5/22/2015 ~ Whole West coast moved over 48 hours, Oregon Earthquake near Erupting Volcano ~ Dutchsinse

Over the past 48 hours the whole of the West coast of the United States has moved on at least a 4.0 magnitude level or greater.

Currently, another mid-4.0 magnitude (4.2 M) earthquake has struck the West coast, off the shores of Oregon, near the Axial undersea volcano (which is currently erupting).

This is a huge development to see, please pay close attention to the regional seismic activity over the next week (currently May 22 2015).

48 hours 4.0m and greater earthquakes may 22 2015


This new West coast earthquake activity is expected, but unwelcome.

See the earthquake forecast for the West coast of the United States here (issued May 21 2015):


This new West coast earthquake unrest began with a 4.2M at the border of Alaska and British Colombia Canada (as expected).

The Alaska activity was shortly followed by a new swarm of earthquakes at the Salton Sea Volcanic buttes (located in Southern California).

The Southern California volcanic earthquake swarm was shortly followed by a 4.1M event in Napa Vallay / Gorda Escarpment zone near San Francisco, CA.

All the aforementioned activity has now been followed by a 4.2 magnitude earthquake off the shores of Oregon.  These events all point towards Vancouver Island BC as a “silent zone” to watch, along with Washington State.

Worthy to note, this Oregon earthquake occurred very close to the location of a new underwater volcano which was detected along the Axial Seamount, which is located due West of the Oregon Coast.



Also, keep in mind the oil pipeline rupture along the West coast of California near Los Angeles, and the flurry of dormant volcanoes which have shown movement along the states of California, Oregon, and Washington state…. all these events signs of building pressure in the region.

Worthy to note the large steam plume event which occurred across the state of Nevada for the past 3 days.  Captured by tatoott1009, seen in this video here:


Information on the Oregon 4.2 magnitude earthquake from the USGS:

Magnitude / uncertainty 4.2 mb± 0.1
Location / uncertainty 43.470°N 127.052°W± 5.7 km
Depth / uncertainty 10.0 km± 2.0
Origin Time 2015-05-22 07:40:46.480 UTC
Number of Stations
Number of Phases 98
Minimum Distance 230.99 km (2.08°)
Travel Time Residual 1.05 sec
Azimuthal Gap 176°
FE Region Off the coast of Oregon (30)




After a flurry of West coast earthquake activity yesterday going into this morning (May 22), now an extremely rare 5.4M earthquake has struck South Nevada.

Additionally, a new swarm of earthquakes is now developing at the South Nevada epicenter.

nevada earthquake may 22 2015

The location in Nevada appears to be an ancient dormant volcanic butte. The nearby dormant volcano is surely the culprit for this 5.4M earthquake today.

Search the coordinates, then look at the cliff sides to the East of the epicenter, you will see the old basalt flows, and the higher dome of the butte.

37.296°N 114.703°W

If you search the coordinates you will also come to find that there is an abandoned Copper mine (“Cherokee Copper mine”) located VERY close to the earthquake epicenter.

copper mine earthquake may 22 2015


A west coast earthquake watch was issued yesterday. We have been watching the multiple dormant volcanoes show movement in the region, along with this 5.4 magnitude in Nevada.

Over the past week, the Markagunt volcanic plateau moved in South Utah, and now this dormant volcanic butte (unnamed) shows activity in South Nevada.



Is This A Sign of Increased Energy Affecting The Earth? Global Earthquake and Volcanic Activity Spiked Last Week

(Stillness in the Storm) There has been a considerable increase in seismic activity, especially around the Pacific Plate. There could be several reasons for this activity. If insider Corey GoodETxSG‘s data is accurate, the Cabal still has Earthquake and Geoengineering (chemtrail) technology. This could be partially the reason why.

Related: WMD’s Targeting West Coast | Corey GoodETxSG

There is also the solar shift which is taking place according to many, Daniel and several Reciprocal Systems theory researchers being of particular note. The sun in these models undergoes quantum leaps in brightness, getting hotter and brighter with time. This is in contrast to the present day theory of stellar death, where a star has a limited amount of fuel to work with and slowly burns out over time.

If the RS interpretation is correct, it means the Earth will be moved further out into the solar system, along with all the other planets, in a type of stellar reorientation. The other interesting concept proffered by RS is that the Earth itself has a star fragment at its core, like all the other major bodies in the solar system, which goes through ‘solar flare’s’ resulting in the condensing of various materials from time-space, which make up the planet as a whole. This corresponds well with expanding Earth data, which is a far more accurate explanation of the seismic activity. As the solar shift progresses, the stellar core fragments are energized in an entrainment synchronization process. This means that there will be more seismic activity, and likely a core expansion once the event occurs. The earth will literally get larger, as it has been for some time.

Here is a video of the expanding earth. The dating system offered in RS theory is different in scale, but the same measurements used to create this animation are applicable.

Dan Winter,  and world-renowned German biophysicist Dieter Broers both discuss the effect of increased solar energy on consciousness with a high degree of precision.

All of this data suggests that an energetic quantum leap, the so called ascension, is highly likely given the available evidence.

This also resonates within the Law of One and various other works all taking of a major shift in consciousness and reality itself. The film solar revolution describes the science behind this as well.

David Wilcock and Corey have also shared that a certain faction of the Secret Space Program, Solar Warden, has aligned with a race known as the Blue Avians, or the ‘Sphere Being’s’. This is a highly advanced race who came here as part of their way of helping humanity heal from something they did deep in our past.

The Law of One describes them as the Brothers and Sisters of Sorrow, who came to earth approximately 8,500 years ago eventually creating the pyramids 6,500 years ago, and staying here creating other structures for another 1,500 years. Their teachings were distorted and lead to even more darkness due to misuse at the hands of the Cabal in that time. As a result they have an opportunity to help the transition which is now occurring, and in doing so ‘heal their karmic debt’.

David Wilcock shared in his recent talk, that his sources have disclosed this energetic shift, or quantum leap in the sun, could occur as early as fall 2016. Whether or not this is actually the case of course is unknown, but according to Daniel, part of the geoengineering plan of the Cabal is to dampen the more coherent and intensified energies entering the Earth from our Sun. The data offered above lends credence to this notion, and if it holds true, we should see more indications like what Dutchsinse is offering below.

There has been a sharp increase in earthquakes, in regions normally not active, as well as an increased level of volcanic eruptions. This could be caused by Fracking or other artificial means, or could be part of the influx of energies we would normally expect to see as the Sun reaches a maximum.

If all this is accurate then we have nothing to fear as it’s all part of the grand plan of progressive evolution.

May 2, 2015

An extremely rare 4.0 magnitude (4.2 revised upwards) earthquake has struck Southern Michigan.
rare michigan earthquake may 5 2015a
The fault zone in Michigan is directly related to (and influenced by) the New Madrid Seismic Zone (NMSZ).
As you can see in this graphic released by the Indiana Geological Survey, the two seismic zones are adjacent to one another.  When one area is displaced, it puts pressure upon the other location.
We were watching for a 4.0M earthquake to strike Southeast Canada into New York / Pennsylvania — now the area nearby is hit with a 4.2M earthquake.
This is close enough for me to consider this a direct hit in the forecast.
The New Madrid had just experienced a borderline 3.0M earthquake less than 24 hours BEFORE this 4.0M in Michigan.
The New Madrid earthquake yesterday led me to make a new warning post for the area.
Quote the midwest / New Madrid / Wabash Valley forecast from 13 hours BEFORE this 4.0M struck:
california cluster craton earthquakes may 1 2015
May 1, 2015:  “2.9M earthquake along the New Madrid seismic zone.
As expected pressure is now beginning to transfer Eastward along the edge of the craton due to the pressure this past week on the South and Western portions of the plate.
Notice the 2.9M earthquakes flanking both sides of the Oklahoma fracking operations.
Colorado fracking 2.9M… swarm of fracking earthquakes in Oklahoma.. and then a “natural” 2.9M translates eastward at the nearest “weak point / release point” for the pressure.
The “natural” pressure transfer earthquakes should begin to show along the New Madrid to East coast over the next several days.”
Now, May 2 2015, the area between the New Madrid and South Quebec is hit with a 4.0M event.

Michigan Shaken By 4.2-Magnitude Earthquake

Posted: 05/02/2015 1:36 pm EDT
Residents of southwestern Michigan were unexpectedly shaken by a 4.2-magnitude earthquake Saturday, according to the U.S. Geological Survey.

The first reports of the earthquake were circulated on social media around 12:30 p.m. EDT Saturday.

Shortly thereafter, the U.S. Geological Survey confirmed that the 4.0-magnitude earthquake hit nine miles southeast of Kalamazoo at 12:23 p.m. The earthquake’s magnitude was later upgraded to 4.2.

 According to Detroit’s WWJ News, it was one of the strongest earthquakes ever experienced in Michigan. Geophysicist John Bellini told local radio station WHTC that the quake could be felt as far away as northern Indiana and Ohio.
There have been no reported injuries.

Southern Quebec Canada is reporting a 2.7 magnitude earthquake which was just added to the USGS feeds.
In addition, Michigan has now experienced the largest earthquake in State history (since at least 1946). Measuring 4.2 magnitude, this rare event was felt across multiple states, including Indiana, Ohio, and North into Canada.
The additional listed Quebec 2.7 magnitude earthquake is worthy to note in light of its location to the other events which transpired over the past 24 hours.
This graphic below shows the past 24 hours of 2.5M+ earthquakes in the United States.  No doubt the two equidistantly spaced earthquakes FLANKING each side of the Michigan 4.2M event are related to the overall craton edge movement.
michigan earthquake craton may 2 2015
We were expecting the area of Southern Quebec to show movement.  It would appear this earthquake activity in Quebec hit as part of this 4.2M Michigan event.
Regardless of which order of events occurred, BOTH earthquakes reside upon the general “edge” of the North American Craton.
In this graphic below, the past 7 days of Earthquake activity revels, undeniably, that the whole of the North American plate was displaced this past week (up to May 2, 2015 5pm CDT).

MINIMUM DISTANCE 168.31 km (1.51°)
FE REGION Southern Quebec, Canada (447)
The forecast for Quebec was two fold, one general warning in the most recent public earthquake forecast update [Major Global Unrest video above].
The second more specific warning was issued via Text to my readers, and to the general public as well:
Quote the midwest / New Madrid / Wabash Valley forecast from 13 hours BEFORE the 4.0M in Michigan struck:
california cluster craton earthquakes may 1 2015
May 1, 2015: “2.9M earthquake along the New Madrid seismic zone.
As expected pressure is now beginning to transfer Eastward along the edge of the craton due to the pressure this past week on the South and Western portions of the plate.
Notice the 2.9M earthquakes flanking both sides of the Oklahoma fracking operations.

The “natural” pressure transfer earthquakes should begin to show along the New Madrid to East coast over the next several days.”
Now, May 2 2015, a full day after warning the area for 4.0M+ movement — the area between the New Madrid and South Quebec is hit with a 4.0M event in Michigan, and a 2.7M strikes Southern Quebec.

4/25/2015 — North Japan ALERT — Land RISES 50 feet (1000 feet long) OVERNIGHT

UPDATE – NHK report was typed (by them) wrong? Says 300 meters HEIGHT in the NHK article. Other articles say 15 meters high. It looks taller than 40 feet… hmm.. some reports saying 10 meters WIDE.. other reports saying 30 meters WIDE… hmm..

Regardless of the difference in footage, ANY footage moving upwards in Japan is worthy of note. Normally the crust moves in millimeters and inches.. not meters and feet!

Full website post with screenshots and the original story from Japanese main stream media:


In my 5 years of covering events online, covering all major earthquakes, we have NEVER seen a 1 day rise of 1,000 feet (300meters) of anything.. worthy to note !


A massive sudden (1 day) rise of land from the sea has occurred along the coast of Hokkaido Japan.

Major global earthquake activity is taking place, and serious crustal movement is obviously underway in the region around North Japan.

The new land began rising from the sea yesterday morning (April 24, 2015) with just a 1 meter rise (3 feet), then began rising rapidly, the event is still ongoing as of April 25th into 26th 2015.

The new land mass has now risen over 50 feet and 300 meters long (near 1,000 feet), and near 10 meters wide (30 feet)! Not ‘small’ by any means, and a very rare occurrence to top it off.

This is being attributed to crustal movement in the area.

Texas “officials” DENY fracking causes earthquakes = EPIC SCIENCE FAIL

Published on Jan 28, 2015

UPDATE 230pm CST January 28, 2015: About 2 hours after releasing this video response to the Texas Railroad Commission, who is actively denying fracking causes earthquakes………. a rather rare KANSAS earthquake just occurred 300 feet away from the nearest frack well in South Central Kansas.

Screenshot proof here: Texas Railroad Commission, time to commission a new propaganda director!

Full post below:



Prepare yourselves for a point by point rebuttal to the Texas Railroad Commission “Staff Seismologists” who are denying fracking causes earthquakes.

Literally, Texas “officials” are denying that fracking causes earthquakes, incorrectly saying that the “press” is generating fears of earthquakes, also further incorrectly saying that there is no evidence (other than anecdotal) which supports the fracking earthquake claims.

Here is their full denial article:


Meanwhile, here in reality, the USGS has fully confirmed fracking induced earthquakes:

Several posts linked below with USGS official links on induced seismicity — Texas Railroad Commission, the days of denial are over.


Here is my most recent earthquake update / forecast post from the main dutchsinse website:



Cornell professor of seismology confirms fracking induced earthquakes are a reality, and are growing in size, and expanding across larger areas.


Several posts done by myself with worthwhile official USGS links worth checking:

Kansas Geologic Survey links fracking to earthquakes:



Oklahoma Geologic Survey links fracking to earthquakes:


Arkansas government BANS new injection wells, and links fracking to earthquakes:

2nd CME, Fiji M7.1 EARTHQUAKE ~ 11/1/14

Contrary to BP’s narrative, even though it’s a turbulent ride the suns energy is VERY beneficial to the shift. It’s activating our DNA codes and helping Earth to purge, cleanse and clear all the negative energy’s coming from the collective as we purge our “stuff”, and the sun’s activity is helping clear density stored within Gaia over the last epoch. The best way to integrate this energy is to take frequent grounding breaks throughout the day to remain centered and focused. The Earth is doing the best she can to move us through the shift with minimal injury, loss of life and damage to infrastructure.

12.0 Earthquake Anomaly Off West Coast of Africa!

Note: Unless this was a clearing, cleansing energetic event of some sort…this anomaly goes in the X Files for future reference, clarity and hindsight on events to come. At this time with limited data to work with, it’s hard to say what happened…

Six Critically Injured, 120 Treated At Napa Hospital Following 6.0 Earthquake

Posted: 08/24/2014 11:14

NAPA, Calif. (AP) — The largest earthquake to hit the San Francisco Bay Area in 25 years sent scores of people to hospitals, ignited fires, damaged multiple historic buildings and knocked out power to tens of thousands in California’s wine country on Sunday.

The 6.0-magnitude earthquake that struck at 3:20 a.m. about 6 miles from the city of Napa ruptured water mains and gas lines, left two adults and a child critically injured, upended bottles and casks at some of Napa Valley’s famed wineries and sent residents running out of their homes in the darkness.

At an afternoon press conference, officials at Napa’s Queen of the Valley hospital said that 120 individuals had been treated, with six patients injured critically.

Dazed residents too fearful of aftershocks to go back to bed wandered at dawn through Napa’s historic downtown, where the quake had shorn a 10-foot chunk of bricks and concrete from the corner of an old county courthouse. Bolder-sized pieces of rubble littered the lawn and street in front of the building and the hole left behind allowed a view of the offices inside.

College student Eduardo Rivera, 20, said the home he shares with six relatives shook so violently that he kept getting knocked back into his bed as he tried to flee.

“When I woke up, my mom was screaming, and the sound from the earthquake was greater than my mom’s screams,” Rivera said.

While inspecting the shattered glass at her husband’s storefront office in downtown Napa, Chris Malloy, 45, described calling for her two children in the dark as the quake rumbled under the family’s home, throwing heavy pieces of furniture 3 or 4 feet and breaking them.

“It was shaking and I was crawling on my hands and knees in the dark, looking for them,” she said, wearing flip flops on feet left bloodied from crawling through broken glass.

President Barack Obama was briefed on the earthquake, the White House said. Federal officials also have been in touch with state and local emergency responders. Gov. Jerry Brown declared a state of emergency for southern Napa County, directing state agencies to respond with equipment and personnel.

Napa Fire Department Operations Chief John Callanan said the city has exhausted its own resources trying to extinguish six fires, some in places with broken water mains; transporting injured residents; searching homes for anyone who might be trapped; and answering calls about gas leaks and downed power lines.

Two of the fires happened at mobile home parks, including one where four homes were destroyed and two others damaged, Callanan said.

The earthquake sent 120 people to Queen of the Valley Medical Center in Napa, where officials set up a triage tent to handle the influx. Most had cuts, bumps and bruises received either in the quake, when they tried to flee their homes or while cleaning up, hospital CEO Walt Mickens said. Three people were admitted with broken bones and two for heart attacks.

The child in critical condition was struck by part of a fireplace and had to be airlifted to a specialty hospital for a neurological evaluation, Callanan said.

The earthquake is the largest to shake the Bay Area since the magnitude-6.9 Loma Prieta quake in 1989, the USGS said. That temblor struck the area on Oct. 17, 1989, during a World Series game between the San Francisco Giants and the Oakland Athletics, collapsing part of the Bay Bridge roadway and killing more than 60 people, most when an Oakland freeway fell.

Sunday’s quake was felt widely throughout the region. People reported feeling it more than 200 miles south of Napa and as far east as the Nevada border. Amtrak suspended its train service through the Bay Area so tracks could be inspected.

Napa City Manager Mike Parness said at an afternoon news conference that 15 to 16 buildings were no longer inhabitable, and there was only limited access to numerous other structures, mostly ones with broken windows. Officials say they are still assessing buildings in the area.

In Napa, at least three historic buildings were damaged, including the county courthouse, and at least two downtown commercial buildings have been severely damaged. A Red Cross evacuation center was set up at a high school, and crews were assessing damage to homes, bridges and roadways.

“There’s collapses, fires,” said Napa Fire Capt. Doug Bridewell, standing in front of large pieces of masonry that broke loose from a turn of the century office building where a fire had just been extinguished. “That’s the worst shaking I’ve ever been in.”

Bridewell said he had to climb over fallen furniture in his own home to check on his family before reporting to duty.

The shaking emptied cabinets in homes and store shelves, set off car alarms and had residents of neighboring Sonoma County running out of their houses and talking about damage inside their homes.

Pacific Gas and Electric spokesman J.D. Guidi said close to 30,000 lost power right after the quake hit, but the number was down just under 19,000, most of them in Napa. He says crews are working to make repairs, but it’s unclear when electricity would be restored.

The depth of the earthquake was just less than 7 miles, and numerous small aftershocks have occurred, the USGS said.

“A quake of that size in a populated area is of course widely felt throughout that region,” said Randy Baldwin, a geophysicist with the U.S. Geological Survey in Golden, Colorado.

California Highway Patrol Officer Kevin Bartlett said cracks and damage to pavement closed the westbound Interstate 80 connector to westbound State Route 37 in Vallejo and westbound State Route 37 at the Sonoma off ramp. He says there haven’t been reports of injuries or people stranded in their cars, but there are numerous flat tires from motorists driving over damaged roads.
