Meagan Castle, spokeswoman for Governor Bill Ritter, confirms that her boss has received a threatening letter that's been turned over to the FBI. But that's all she's saying -- and FBI spokesman Dave Joly isn't offering any additional information until an afternoon press conference being piggy-backed on a media gathering to discuss the search for Kayleah Wilson, a missing twelve-year-old girl from Greeley.
Meanwhile, reports about other governors of either political party receiving similar notes are continuing to pop up. According to the Associated Press, the missives are from a group called Guardians of the Free Republics, which wants to "restore America" by, among other things, having govs resign their positions within three days. Otherwise, they'll be removed.
The Guardians of the Free Republics web page does indeed feature a "Restore America" plan. Here's how it's described:
The Restore America Plan
The Restore America Plan is a bold achievable strategy for behind-the-scenes peaceful reconstruction of the de jure institutions of government without controversy, violence or civil war. After consultation with high ranking members of the United States armed forces, the Plan is in the process of assembling the Guardians of the Free Republics and reinhabiting the De jure Grand Juries to:
* Restore and reinhabit the de jure institutions of lawful government. * Terminate illicit corporations posing as legitimate governments, in particular the territorial jurisdiction United States Federal Corporation (corp. ref. 28 U.S.C. 3002) posing as the de jure United States of America. * Terminate all presumed powers of attorney to such corporations. * End the foreclosure nightmare (for borrowing against one's own credit). * End tax prosecutions for resisting the transfer of private wealth to foreign banking cartels such as I.R.S. (former Puerto Rico Bureau of Taxation). * End street assaults against the sovereign People for failing to exhibit a State-issued confession of subject-class citizenship. * End all prosecutions which lack an injured party. * End admiralty prosecutions for kidnapping and other heinous crimes against mankind as "commercial crimes" against the corporate State under a contrived corporate color-of-law venue (corp. ref. 27 C.F.R. 72.11). * Terminate the intrusion of corporations posing as the state into every aspect of the People's lives. * End the use of covert contracts such as Form 1040, car registrations, birth certificate applications, and bank signature cards which confess the signer to be a legal fiction subject of the United States Federal Corporation ("U.S. person") that has waved his/her rights in favor of state-issued privileges. * End the use of deeds which classify the People as "tenants" on their own land, thereby transferring control to incorporated County registrars and tax assessors. * End the perversion of marriage into a commercial system of state-issued privileges through the so-called "marriage license" whereby incorporated "courts" presume the "right" to trespass on families and kidnap children. * End the hijacking of automobile ownership through DMV registrations which covertly exchange the divine rights of travel and ownership for the state-issued "privileges" of "driving" and "title." * In place of all of the above, substitute sovereign identification, diplomatic immunity and sovereign passports to facilitate safe passage throughout the world free from corporate State molestation and terror. * Restore the People's money and wealth from the banking institutions, war profiteers, and international loan sharks. * Instantly vest all mortgages, auto loans and personal business loans "issued" by members of the Fed. The state shall hold no paper on, or debts against, the sovereign People, directly or through its agencies and licensed banking institutions. * Instantly end all non-consensual and unlawful taxation including all taxes on the sacred rights of labor and privacy. * Empower and inspire the sovereign People to righteousness through such renewed abundance. * Issue orders to the military and police powers to enforce the Peoples' divine rights of birth. * Reabsorb all de facto actors into lawful de jure capacity. * End the perverse act of requiring the People to pray to "courts" as is now required under corporate rules and traditions. * Restore the de jure judicial institutions including the district court of the United States and the one supreme Court. * Quietly mirror the strategies of 1933 thereby using their (our) institutions, military and public officials to undo eighty years of subterfuge without provoking alarm, controversy or armed conflict. * Return the military and law enforcement institutions to proper and lawful de jure sovereign authority from the clutches of corporate actors. * Forgive all corporate actors who repent for their State-sponsored crimes against mankind. Remove the recidivists from office. * Do all of the above, and more, peacefully, discreetly, quietly and honorably, behind the scenes, without public proclamations or provocative actions against a general public that is mostly unaware of the hijacking of their free de jure American republics, and their hapless media.
