I am in the midst of reading a book called "Tales From the Time Loop", by David Icke. In it he speaks of the US Court system being operated under the UCC (Uniform Commercial Code), which is also known as British Maritime (Military) Law.
On the US Flag, Icke reveals that when said flag has a GOLD FRINGE, it is indeed a LEGAL symbol stating that the aforementioned court is sitting under British Maritime Law and the UCC.
Therefore NOT sitting under COMMON or CONSTITUTIONAL Law!
He states that under the Admiralty Law of Flags, a flag displayed indicates the law under which an entity is regulated.
So, if you appear in acourt with a gold fringed flag your constitutional rights are suspended in lieu of the UCC and BML!
Unfortuanately LEGALese is not one of my strong points.
Does anyone have any insight they might be able to share with me, as I literally have just read this and have not the faculties to read through LEGAL texts and research. Laws are worded in very complex terms and I admit I do not grasp law codes just by browsing them!
This seems HUUUUUUUUGGGGGGE 2 me.
A BIIIIIIIIIGGG deal!

I have bookmarked those two links for later reading having just skimmed over them briefly before this posting. Thanks for the links.
I have several of those publications from the Federal Reserve banks including the one mentioned
Modern money mechanics.
This one as I recall was originally published by the Federal Reserve Bank of New York. Also I have " The National Debt" and Keys to the Gold Vault, Money in Colonial New England...also by various Fed Reserve Banks.
Very intresting publications.
The Federal Reserve Banks used to publish a catalogue which you can request by mail and they will send them to you. They used to be free. You then begin ordering thier publications from this catalogue which is obviously how I acquirred mine. Some of them are quite intresting and telling.
I have read several books on this subjet area going back to Tupper Saucys book Miracle on Main Street..published back in the late 1970s as i recall.
I am aware of the fiat money system also fractional reserves and also have read JOhn Maynard Keynes book Economic Consequences of the peace about the Versailles Treaty and inflation after WW!.
I am not a big John Maynard Keynes fan ..more of a Adam Smith ,Austrian School of Economics fan...but I am aware of some of what Keynes speaks about in his books.
Ironic that he made his millions on inflation and then wrote books against it.
Thanks for your post and the links,
According to the United States Constitution, Article 3, Section 2, Clause 1: "The judicial Power shall extend to all Cases, in Law and Equity, arising under this Constitution, the Laws of the United States, and Treaties made, or which shall be made, under their Authority; to all Cases affecting Ambassadors, other public Ministers and Consuls; to all Cases of Admiralty and Maritime Jurisdiction; to Controversies to which the United States shall be a Party; to Controversies between two or more States; between a State and Citizens of another State; between Citizens of different States, between Citizens of the same State claiming Lands under Grants of different States, and between a State, or the Citizens thereof, and foreign States, Citizens or Subjects".
What is Admiralty: "The name of a jurisdiction which takes cognizance of suits or actions which arise in consequence of acts done upon or relating to the sea; or, in other words, of all transactions and proceedings relative to commerce and navigation, and to damages or injuries upon the sea. In the great maritime nations of Europe, the term 'admiralty jurisdiction,' is, uniformly applied to courts exercising jurisdiction over maritime contracts and concerns. It is as familiarly known among the jurists of Scotland, France, Holland and Spain, as of England, and applied to their own courts, possessing substantially the same jurisdiction as the English Admiralty had in the reign of Edward III.
The Constitution of the United States has delegated to the courts of the national government cognizance 'of all cases of admiralty and maritime jurisdiction;' and the act of September 24, 1789, has given the district court 'cognizance of all civil causes of admiralty and maritime jurisdiction,' including all seizures under laws of imposts, navigation or trade of the United States, where the seizures are made on waters navigable from the sea, by vessels of ten or more tons burden, within their respective districts, as well as upon the high seas"

Actually, StellarX, if you have seen any of my Op/Ed's, I think we are nearing a Police State. In fact, it is something which worries me however this thread is focusing on the wrong thing in my views and this only allows more harm to be done.

Do you know at what point the colonists adopted this that they found so objectionable, for their own courts?
Or are you implying the colonists never gained independence and Colonial rule has always ruled USA?
Had to go to traffic court last week...
Saw the fringe...
Chose a respectable demeanor instead of challenging the judge with my knowledge...
Not gonna lie...
But it would have been cool if I started grandstanding like Stephen Colbert, and exposed the travesties...
But I had enough fines to pay!

The Internet contains many sites that claim that the fringe indicates martial law or that the Constitution does not apply in that area. These are entirely unfounded (usually citing Executive Order 10834 and inventing text that is not part of the order) and should be dismissed as urban legends.
"the Flag is trimmed on three sides with Fringe of Gold, 2 1/2 inches wide," and that, "such flags are flown indoors, ONLY in military courtrooms." And that the Gold Fringed Flag is not to be carried by anyone except units of the United States Army, and the United States Army division associations."
