(1 Corinthians 12:12) For as the body is one, and hath many members, and all the members of that one body, being many, are one body: so also is Christ.

(1 Corinthians 12:18) But now hath God set the members every one of them in the body, as it hath pleased him.

(1 Corinthians 12:20) But now are they many members, yet but one body.

(1 Corinthians 12:22) Nay, much more those members of the body, which seem to be more feeble, are necessary:

(1 Corinthians 12:23) And those members of the body, which we think to be less honourable, upon these we bestow more abundant honour; and our uncomely parts have more abundant comeliness.

(1 Corinthians 12:25) That there should be no schism in the body; but that the members should have the same care one for another.

(1 Corinthians 12:26) And whether one member suffer, all the members suffer with it; or one member be honoured, all the members rejoice with it.

(1 Corinthians 12:27) Now ye are the body of Christ, and members in particular.”

The Requestor of help consents, and understands and agrees that all of the Host and workers action and information are given through a good faith effort to help and support; and Requestor accepts this help without recourse to the Host and without recourse to the workers.

The current FRNs or FRENs USD dollar bills are not lawful gold or silver coin money which is the only money considered lawful in the original Constitution for the United States of America, so the current money in gereral circulation is without recognition as a lawful money by the Original Constitutions. Article. I., Section. 10. “No State shall enter into any Treaty, Alliance, or Confederation; grant Letters of Marque and Reprisal; coin Money; emit Bills of Credit; make any Thing but gold and silver Coin a Tender in Payment of Debts; pass any Bill of Attainder, ex post facto Law, or Law impairing the Obligation of Contracts, or grant any Title of Nobility.”

In the United States of America after the Original state and federal constitutions which do recognize unalienable rights, men put in place constitutions and statutes that do not fully recognize God Given Unalienable Rights that cannot be taken away by men but can only be taken away by God since men did not give the rights but God gave the rights. The Maxim of Law is, “Whose right it is to institute, his right it is to abrogate.”

Considering that the use of the current federal reserve notes (FERNs) may be construed as a step towards, or full, agreement to accepting mere benefit privileges granted by men through their constitutions and statutes that they have created and put in place not recognizing God Given Unalienable Rights but recognizing only man given benefits privileges which can be taken away by men, therefore, the Host denies willing participation in the use of FRNs/FERNs USD dollar bills. The Maxims of Law are; “Favors from government often carry with them an enhanced measure of regulation;” “Any one may renounce a law introduced for his own benefit;” “No one is obliged to accept a benefit against his consent;” “A privilege is, as it were, a private law.”

The use of these substandard de facto dollars is by mere submission without consent because the Host finds no viable alternative of lawful coin money in general circulation. The Maxim of Law is, “Every consent involves a submission; but a mere submission does not necessarily involve consent.” Also, the Host has found it impossible to find lawful coin money put out in general circulation by the government for the public to use, and therefore, the Host cannot use lawful coin gold or silver money put out by the state governments for general use in buying and selling and tender in payment of debts to his knowledge. The Maxim of Law is, “The law compels no one to do anything which is useless or impossible.”

Therefore, the patron Requestor of help consents, understands and agrees with the Host and workers that he or she and the Host do not waive or surrender their unalienable rights by the use of the current federal reserve note (FRNS/FERNs) dollar bills, nor does anyone participating in this contract give up their rights by the use of FERNs and/or related credit and debt instruments/transactions. All involved in this contract agree and consent to retain their God Given Unalienable Rights which cannot be taken away by men and agree to not waive or surrender these Rights with regards to this contract without exception.

The Requestor of help consents, understands and agrees with the Host concerning the value and cost of the goods and chattel-services charged as a result of this agreement. The Host of the website retains his God-Given constitutional recognizable rights to money of inherent value, which in the United states of America of original jurisdiction is silver coin by lawful weight or gold coin both minting by the states. Since their is no such lawful money in general circulation and the states are in violation of this constitutional requirement and the Host knows of no viable alternative whereby he can trade his labor for money of constitutional lawful value, therefore the current federal reserve note “debt instrument” dollars, a.k.a. US dollars, by mere submission without consent he does accept in settlement “Without Prejudice,” and he uses the same for making payments and awards, “Without Prejudice,” and without waiving his right to pay or receive payment in gold or silver coin per the Constitutional mandate of the Constitutions for the United States of America of original jurisdiction. Although it is not fair and just to the current people of the United states of America to have money in general circulation that is 20 to 30 times less in value than silver coin of lawful weight at the time of the writing of the Constitution of the United States of original jurisdiction, yet the current “debt instrument” federal reserve note dollars, a.k.a. US dollars in general circulation are in use in this agreement and contract of bill of sale for settlement in trading or paying money for labor due to the principles of equal protection under the laws and the common law maxims of law on impossibility, including but not limited to:

“What is good and equal, is the law of laws.”

“Unequal things ought not to be joined.” [2 Corinthians 6:14]

“The law requires nothing impossible.”

“The law compels no one to do anything which is useless or impossible.”

“No one is bound to do what is impossible.”

“Impossibility excuses the law.”

“Many men know many things, no one knows everything.”

“He is clear of blame who knows, but cannot prevent.”

To the Host’s knowledge it is impossible for the Host to keep things equal without using the instruments that are currently in general circulation, nor is it possible for all people to pay lawful money on this contract-agreement at this moment in time to the Host’s knowledge.

Therefore to the Host knowledge since constitutional coin money of gold or silver is not in general circulation but only private FRNs (Federal Resever Notes) money is being used, the Host still retains and all parties retain full God-Given rights, and use the FRN dollars without prejudice to their rights because there is no viable alternative to the Hosts or parties’ knowledge that can be used fairly to buy an sell within this circumstance.

The Requestor of help consents, understands and agrees with the Host and workers that “Watson Lord & Watson” is a Christian establishment within the First Amendment provision, “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.”

Contract for Bill of Sale:

This contract of bill of sale is entered into by the man, Guy Te Watson, hereinafter Host, and the the Requestor of help, one of the people of the United States of America, whether man or woman, hereinafter called “people,” making payment for membership into the Watson Lord and Watson – Guy Te Watson – desktoprevealer.net – help-to-stop-foreclosure.net and/or other websites or Watson Lord and Watson non-attorney Peoples Advocacy Fellowship Group providing Next Friend, Private Attorney General, and Jailhouse Lawyer type help membership. Whereas the Host is contracting to sell to people one non-corporate membership for the sum certain of one or more coin specie dollar of silver of The United States of America of A.D 1921 vintage along with or for other consideration, including the current US dollars in general circulation in the United states of America. The meeting of the minds for said contract between the Host and the people, culminates on “the day” of the peoples act of making payment for said membership “2009 A.D.” or “other current year A.D.” upon the delivery by the people of said coin specie dollar of silver or other said consideration, i.e. US dollars, in settlement to the Host. The Host and the people agree that the law that governs this use agreement contract and bill of sale is The Holy Bible, King James Authorized Version and the Constitution for The United States of America with the amendments of 1791 A.D., the Bill of Rights attached thereto and the Constitution of the people of New York of 1777 A.D. with the enumeration of the peoples rights by ratification in 1788 A.D. in union with said “The United States of America” as one of the several states thereto and the laws made in pursuance thereof and that the said law governs the unalienable rights, privileges, immunities, liberties and duties securing thereby the Host and the people. The people agree to hold the Host harmless concerning their future use or conduct as relating to said membership and the information the member gains or uses. The Host and the people agree that each man or woman shall possess one original electronic or hard copy of this use agreement and contract of bill of sale. Therefore, pursuant to the foregoing “Watson Lord and Watson non-attorney Peoples Advocacy Fellowship Group” stipulations, irrevocable conditions and limitations the Host hereby transfers and assigns all rights and title and corresponding duties and obligations related to the due diligence of the use of said membership to the people. Said transfers and assigns is made pursuant to the “Holy Bible” and the 9th, 2nd, and 4th Articles of Amendment of the Bill of Rights to said Constitution for the united States of America, notwithstanding any other place, plane, space, time or law form whatsoever, without exception.

The people consent, understand and agree with the Host that the execution of this “Watson Lord and Watson non-attorney Peoples Advocacy Fellowship Group” contract and Contract of Bill of Sale is a voluntary action by the Host and the people making payment, upon the soil of the North American Continent or any other continent on the face of the earth and on the land of the great state of New York a republic; and the execution is with the understanding that the following Maxim of Law is in effect, “It is immaterial whether a man gives his assent by words or by acts and deeds,” and therefore the Host’s actions to provide this “Watson Lord and Watson Non-attorney Peoples Advocacy Fellowship Group” membership and “Contract of Bill of Sale” and “Limited Power Of Attorney Contract” and the peoples actions making payment to obtain membership, or any other affirmative action in relation to receiving help is equivalent to making and autographing this whole three part Contract by their own hand in their own handwriting.

The Requestor of help consents, understands and agrees with the Host and workers, after reading and reviewing Watson Lord and Watson materials and websites and any other materials I have researched I believe the “Watson Lord and Watson non-attorney Peoples Advocacy Fellowship Group” methods can help me accomplish my goals concerning matters at or in law, but I understand there are no guarantees. I understand that in a dispute like mine the Host of Watson Lord and Watson can only promise a good faith effort to help me and it would be unlawful to make me any guarantees of success since the Host cannot guarantee or predict the performance of the others involved in this action like the creditor agents, attorneys or the judges that may hear the issues and dispute.

The Requestor of help consents, understands, and agrees with the Host and workers I have sought and obtained counsel if needed to understand any provisions of this contract and affirm that I understand and agree to all the terms and conditions of this contract without exception. This contract supersedes and previous contracts in or between the people herein contracting. This contract is the full extent of the agreement and consent and assent between Guy Te Watson and the Requestor. This contract encompasses the heights, depths, width, length, breath, and bounds of their meeting of the minds and understanding.

The Requestor of help consents, understands, and agrees with the Host that the Host acknowledges and agrees to the acceptance of this contract when providing any type of service for the Requestor or if the Host goes without contacting the Requestor within three days to state that the Requestor’s contract and request for help has been denied or cancelled for any reason. In addition, the Requestor of help consents, understands, and agrees with the Host that the Requestor or Host may cancel this contract at any time for any reason with 30 days notice.

The Requestor of help consents, understands, and agrees with the Host and workers that I cannot bring Guy Te Watson, Watson Lord & Watson or his associates and affiliates into a dispute or an action outside of this contract.

Relevant Case Cites and Maxims of Law:

Private Attorney General:

Ex rel.: for the people of the united States defined:”… But it is the manner of enforcement which gives Title 42 U.S.C. 1983 its unique importance, for the enforcement is placed in the hands of the people,” Each citizen, “acts as a private attorney general who takes on the mantle of the sovereign, guarding for all of us the individual liberties enunciated in the constitution.” Section 1983 represents a balancing feature in our governmental structure where by individual citizens are encouraged to police those who are charged in policing us all. Thus, it is of special importance that suits brought under the statute be resolved by a determination of truth. Wood v. Breier, 54 F.B.D. 7,(1972)

The Obligations of Contract:

United States Constitution, Article l, Section 10:

“No State shall ……. make any…… Law impairing the Obligation of Contracts, or grant any Title of Nobility.”

The Maxims of Law are:

Consent makes the law. A contract is a law between the parties, which can acquire force only by consent.

Consent makes the law: the terms of a contract, lawful in its purpose, constitute the law as between the parties.

To him consenting, no injury is done.

He who consents cannot receive an injury.

Consent removes or obviates a mistake.

One who wills a thing to be or to be done cannot complain of that thing as an injury.

The agreement of the parties makes the law of the contract.

The contract makes the law.

Agreements give the law to the contract.

The agreement of the parties overcomes or prevails against the law.

Advice, unless fraudulent, does not create an obligation.

He who approves cannot reject.

Agreement takes the place of the law: the express understanding of parties supercedes such understanding as the law would imply.

Manner and agreement overrule the law.

Next Friend:

The preparation of petitions must never be considered the exclusive prerogative of the lawyer. Laymen—– should be allowed to act as “next friend” to any person in the preparation of any paper or document or claim, so long as he does not hold himself out as practicing law or as being a member of the Bar. The cooperation and help of laymen, as well as of lawyers, is necessary if the right of reasonable access to the courts is to be available to the indigent among us. Johnson v. Avery, Commissioner of Correction, et al., 393 U.S. 483, 498.

Due process requires that a defendant be tried only if he is competent to assist in his own defense. US v. Hinton, 218 F3d 910 (8th Cir. 2000)

One inseparable aspect of the “liberty” and sovereignty is the freedom to engage in litigation in association for the advancement of a particular group or class beliefs and ideas; this is assured by the Due Process Clause of the Fifth and Fourteenth Amendments:

Gitlow v. New York, 268 U.S. 652, 666

Palko v. Connecticut, 302 U.S. 319, 324

Cantwell v. Connecticut, 310 U.S. 296, 303

Staub v. City of Baxley, 355 U.S. 313, 321

De Jonge v. Oregon, 299 U.S. 353, 364

Sovereignty:

Afroyim v. Rusk, 387 U.S. 253 (1967).

“In the United States the People are sovereign and the government cannot sever its relationship to the People by taking away their citizenship.”

MERRION ET AL., DBA MERRION & BAYLESS, ET AL. v. JICARILLA APACHE TRIBE ET AL. 1982.SCT.394 , 455 U.S. 130, 102 S. Ct. 894, 71 L. Ed. 2d 21, 50 U.S.L.W. 4169 pp. 144-148

(b) … To presume that a sovereign forever waives the right to exercise one of its powers unless it expressly reserves the right to exercise that power in a commercial agreement turns the concept of sovereignty on its head. Pp. 144-148.

Lansing v. Smith, 4 Wendell 9, 20 (1829)

“The People of a State are entitled to all rights which formerly belonged to the King by his prerogative.”

Julliard v. Greenman, 110 U.S. 421. (1884)

Congress can exercise no power which they (the people) have not, by their Constitution entrusted to it: All else is withheld.

Yick Wo v. Hopkins & Woo Lee v. Hopkins, 118 U.S. 356. (1886)

“While sovereign powers [i.e. “ownership powers”] are delegated to agencies of the government, sovereignty itself remains with the People, by whom and for whom all government exists and acts.”

Keeper:
One that takes care of and often is legally responsible for something (a keeper of the property).
