HJR-192, Grace & Public Policy, payment or disharge of debts, ect.

I don't really have a question except to ask if these sites are "correct" in what they say, and if so, what does it mean?

http://www.worldnewsstand.net/history/HJR192.htm

http://www.worldnewsstand.net/history/pay_debts.htm

Here are some related questions for those without the time to read those sites:

Quote:
QUESTION #1: Who do you suppose took possession of the treasury of the State of Pa. on June 5, 1933, -- the moment HJR-192 made it impossible for the State of Pennsylvania to pay its debts? QUESTION #2: Land titles being allodial in Pennsylvania, what was the State Assembly's authority and jurisdiction to pledge these allodiums to the Federal Reserve as security for loan contracts from the Federal Government? QUESTION #3: If the individual citizens of Pennsylvania were indeed "sovereign" under the Common Law -- What was the authority and jurisdiction of the State Assembly to pledge their labor to the Federal Reserve pool?
And just to inform you of what people are trying to do with this supposed rubble is this: http://www.the7thfire.com/Politics%2...Card-Debt.html

Short answer: No.

Those sites look typical of those who describe some some sort of what they believe to be a legislative inconsistency to make a claim that people can get out of paying debts and taxes. I'm sure someone will be along shortly with cites debunking their specific claims, but the upshot is that there is no magic way to get out of paying your debts or taxes.

Except for the gold fringe on the American flag thing. God help us if too many people find out about that one; the government could collapse.
