But welcome to Quatloos, Ragnar. What happened to your "ok"? Lost in the flood?
You will find a little history in some of the cases cited above. However, all of this relates to an almost incomprehensible theory that goes like this:
The US became bankrupt in the 1930's
The debt it owed, largely to the English monarch, was then collateralized by the labor of all Americans; each American has a corporate or straw entity, represented by the name in capital letters. Each American -- who has a social security number -- is in this system, and has a secret account at the Treasury representing his or her accumulated value. That account can sometimes be accessed and has been but the successes have been concealed. The knowledgeable can reject the corporate entity represented by the all-caps spelling. Only the straw entity is subject to the jurisdiction of the federal (or perhaps any) court because courts are corporate-created entities by the corporate US and corporate states and corporate municpalities and therefore a lawsuit with all caps names does not reach the natural, living human. All lawyers are part of this because all lawyers are licensed by the BAR, or the British Accredited Registry, which ties to the liens held on all of us by the Queen of England.
I don't understand any of this, but look at sovereignty arguments and redemption arguments. Perhaps you will get it better than I do.
Also, don't forget, that Erie RR v. Tomkins abolished the common law in federal courts. That 30's diversity case ties in somehow.
The layers within layers of conspiracy, etc., is just too hard to follow and the logic is clearly lacking.
Somehow, this also all ties into the Federal Reserve, international banking, the Jews, the Illuminati, the Communits, etc., etc. Pick your particular paranoid and racist delusion.
