The Organic Act of 1871 was the Act that sold us down the river and replaced our de jure government with a corporation. What nobody ever bothered to tell you was that the "Federal government" ONLY has jurisdiction in DC.
Some notes I took from the Organic Act:
"Nor shall the legislative assembly have power to establish any bank of circulation, nor to authorize any company or individual to issue notes for circulation as money and currency" [end of section 17] - *cough cough* Federal Reserve Act, anyone?
"That the legislative power of the District shall extend to all rightful subjects of legislation within said District" [section 18 beginning] - in other words, the government only has jurisdiction within DC.
"That the said legislative assembly shall not have the power...to tax the property of the United States" [section 20] - implies that DC and the United States are separate entities? Also only gives power to tax property within DC.
"That the property of that portion of the District not included in the corporations of Washington and Georgetown..." [section 21 beginning] 'Nuff said.
Section 22 calls both Georgetown and Washington "corporations", multiple times. I'm too lazy to type out the whole section though.
Section 25 implies DC courts can only enforce DC laws.
Section 28 is so mindblowing, I'm going to type the whole thing out here: "That the said legislative assembly shall have power to create by general law, modify, repeal, or amend, within said District, corporations aggregate for religious, charitable, educational, industrial, or commercial purposes, and to define their powers and liabilities; Provided, That the powers of corporations so created shall be limited to the District of Columbia
." THIS is the evidence proving that our "government" only has jurisdiction in DC.
Section 40 again calls Washington and Georgetown corporations (in the beginning) .
"And upon the repeal of the charters of the cities of Washington and Georgetown, the District of Columbia be, and is hereby declared, the successor of said corporations" [section 41]
Sure, some people might argue that by "corporation" they mean "municipal corporation", ie "An incorporated political subdivision of a state that is composed of the citizens of a designated geographic area and which performs certain state functions on a local level and possesses such powers as are conferred upon it by the state.
), but I don't buy that. With legal terms being as precise as they are, there's no way they would make such a huge "mistake". Oops, looks like we accidentally made a corporation that rules the nation instead of a capital for the US government...oh well. NO, it was intentional.
