In June 1861 Unionists of northwestern Virginia held a convention in Wheeling at which the ‘Restored Government of Virgina’ was established as a rival to the secessionist government at Richmond.

Francis Harrison Pierpont was made governor of the ‘Restored Government.’

From that the legislature of THIS government gave Virginia’s consent to the creation of a NEW state, which by LEGAL FICTION was admitted into the Union as West Virginia late in 1862.

The ‘Restored Government’ under Pierpont then moved to Alexandria. From 1863 to the end of the war, this straw government, within the Union lines, was maintained as the government of Virginia.

In 1864 the Pierpont government called a convention which drafted a constitution abolishing slavery and disfranchising Confederate, civil, and military officers.

In May 1865 the Pierpont government moved to Richmond and immidiately the legislature provided that the next elected legislature could act as a convention and repeal the disfranchising features of the Constitution of 1864!

I think he was referring to the Monroe Doctrine of 1810 timeframe. I've read that Jefferson and Adams were warned by the French of imminent Jesuit infiltration into the country, and advised President Monroe to write it so as to keep them out.

Yes, thanks for this deep legal analysis. On a much more surface level, this trafficking of humans is going on in California right under our noses. I once was an environmental activist (and a Democrat) and this man came to me and to another activist to ask us to help stop the trafficking of children by Child Protective Services. You see the same people we were standing for in all those ovations and were pretending to care about open space, etc. were also deep into the business of taking away people's children, many ended up as sex slaves. I don't think that all officials in the government were into slavery but there is a group within the Democratic Party (now, maybe at one time Republican) that is doing this. Shortly after that I left the Democratic Party and the environmental movement because I saw the dirty way the funding happened. Open space for us and total grief for people who were losing their children. Now. I see it so clearly, who they are. DISGUSTING!!

The American States Assembly is a great resource to start learning about this stuff....https://tasa.americanstatenationals.org/

It’s mind blowing how they have kept us in the dark so long. Once you start learning the reality of how things actually work it all starts to make sense and becomes self evident. I respect what Paul James and many others are doing to set us free. At the same time I’m not sure if reseating our vacated government is feasible. I say this be because we are dealing with a criminal mafia with the most powerful military in the world backing it up. I don’t see them giving up all the power and the money they are stealing from us very easily.

Thanks, Reinette, for tackling yet another important issue and sharing it with us. Boy, your soul had big plans in this lifetime. :) I have a friend going through this process and when she tells me about it it seems so daunting. At least I have an original birth certificate with my name in lower case as well as the doctor's signature. Evidently, that's important and some people are finding it challenging to get theirs from their place of birth.

I am shocked that I now am at 70, just being awakened to this. I also want to slap myself to see if I am dreaming, "California Dreaming" regarding having lived outside the US most of my life, in a District of foreign origins!!! Totally blown away and I can see it now in black and white. Amazing info, huge red pill! Thanks so much Reinette~Sharon
