Covenant of Alaska,
a Free and Independent Nation=State
Brought forth in convention, begun at the village of Wasilla, Alaska, on the fifth day of October, two thousand and nineteen, A.D., this Covenant for a free and independent Nation=State creates a perpetual trust which shall administer public holdings through duty-bound and bonded officers.
The land shall be called: Alaska, a Free and Independent Nation=State. This expressed trust shall be called: Covenant of Alaska, a Free and Independent Nation=State. All ministerial duties set forth herein, or in the future created hereunder, shall be executed under this Covenant.
We the settlors of the territory known as Alaska, in assembly met, at Wasilla, Alaska on Saturday the fifth day of October in the year of our Lord two thousand and nineteen, the thirty fifth de jure state, the second state post second millennium A.D. having the right of admission into the General Government, as a member of the Union, consistent with the original foundational documents including the Constitution for the united States of America, on an equal footing with the original states in order to establish Justice, promote the welfare, and secure the blessings of freedom to ourselves and our posterity; do ordain and establish the following Covenant-form of Government, and do mutually agree with each other to form ourselves into a free and independent Nation=State, by the name of Alaska, a Free and Independent Nation=State.
All powers possessed by man flow from the Almighty, to create or to destroy. In this, all men are equal, to exercise such powers individually, or through delegation to surrogates, to protect and enjoy life, freedom, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. It is for that purpose that men institute forms of political covenant, to express the bounds of surrogate power which may be employed, and to construct a framework to secure both non-particular and particular rights. This covenant is written for those purposes, and more, to instruct a people held in bondage how the mechanisms and devices which have enslaved them operate.
Truth is the author of freedom, so also, without truth, freedom is impossible. To facilitate the acquisition of truth, scripture is given us, and to all people, to instruct us in conduct which might either eventuate in bondage or freedom. And scripture of all stripes is founded upon revelation of the Almighty expressed through common law. In the furtherance of individual liberty in law, common law forbids the bearing of false witness, the debasement of money, the practice of unfixed weights and measures, the practice of usury, and the enforcement of private indentures exceeding seven years.
As such, no political state should enforce any contract, or impose any penalty, arising out of a claim which is based upon a witness to these abominations, penalty for infamy up to indenture for life, excepted.
We, therefore, acknowledge that freedom can be exercised only through the seeking of truth, the intent to live in harmony, and the free expression of life through the enjoyment of both private and public property.
Men and women assemble in common accord to extend their powers by delegation of authority. In so doing, each is not diminished, nor does each surrender any powers to a position of fealty, whether to a living being or to a fictional entity. Man and woman each remain sovereign, and the trust structure created by covenant, along with its titles of possession, which are held by fiduciaries under bond, are in a position of vassalage and fealty to the people.
We recognize two forms of law: common law, and its antithesis, civil law. We reserve to ourselves common law, the form of law offering freedom, as we express our claim to particular rights, and reserve all other rights unexpressed. We also authorize the creation of a bailment specifying certain duties ascribed to fiduciaries in a position of fealty to the people under civil law, who shall administer certain public accounts.
No ruler has ever been the source of a nation’s wealth. Thus, all rulers, by the principles of equity, are fiduciaries of a constructive trust in which the property held by such ruler, or ruling entity, belongs to the people, and not to the ruler, nor to his, her or its oligarchy.
When it is apparent to the people that their fiduciaries have acted outside their position of trust, regardless of compact, or constitutional expression, it is incumbent upon the people to change their form of governance, strip the trustees of their charges, offices, and property, and punish them for both their belligerence and their crimes. This covenant is offered to set right that which was twisted by attorney agents of a foreign power who have acted to impose a form of law which is alien to this land and to a free people.
It is beyond absurd to suppose that the founders of the Constitution for these united States, and by extension, the Constitution of Alaska, intended to bring with them the same form of despotism from which they suffered in Europe, and from which they ventured to seek a new land; and even if they did, it would have worked an intentional fraud upon the inhabitants of this land, who sought freedom rather than vassalage, and would never have given their assent had they known what form of government was actually offered to them, and the inevitable condition of absolute servitude it would eventually produce. We, armed with knowledge, will not make that same mistake.
Let us now correct those mistakes. If there be any thing in this document which does not accomplish freedom for the people, let it be amended by the jurists, and let all the people be jurists if they desire. But, in no wise shall any amendment work to diminish the rights of the people, nor subject them to peonage.
We the people of Alaska, a Free and Independent Nation=State, grateful to the Almighty for the organic law and the blessings of liberty, do ordain and establish this Covenant to secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity; to provide for the operation of law; to secure the absolute right of private property; to administer public property for the equal benefit of all; to bind public servants to certain fiduciary duties; to render punishment for breaches of duty; and to organize and establish public courts.
No alliance, contract, compact, covenant, ordinance, law, treaty, rule or agreement shall be made contrary to these Covenant purposes. Alaska, a Free and Independent Nation=State shall not enter into any relationship, such as a partnership, in which another entity can make an obligation binding upon Alaska, a Free and Independent Nation=State or its people. Alaska, a Free and Independent Nation=State has absolute jurisdiction over all corporations and municipalities foreign and domestic, within Alaska’s metes and bounds.
Section 1. The geographic bounds within which public ministers have a duty to administer public property and to operate law under this Covenant shall be described by metes and bounds, and through the use of Global Position Satellite by longitude and latitude, as soon as is practicable, which shall be recorded in the Journal of the House of Statesmen.
Section 2. General description: Alaska, a Free and Independent Nation=State, shall be enriched and secured by the administration of this public trust known as the Covenant of Alaska, a Free and Independent Nation=State, which shall have specified ministers who exercise delegated authority as designated herein, within these territorial bounds:
Commencing from the southern-most point of the island called Prince of Wales Island, which point lies in the parallel of 54 degrees 40 minutes north latitude, and between the 131st and the 133rd degree of west longitude (meridian of Greenwich) said line shall ascend to the north along the channel called Portland channel, as far as the point of the continent where it strikes the 56th degree of north latitude; from this last mentioned point, the line of demarcation shall follow the summit of the mountains situated parallel to the coast as far as the point of intersection of the 141st degree of west longitude and finally from the said point of intersection, sai d meridian line of the 141st degree, in its prolongation as far as the frozen ocean, and from the center of the Earth to the farthest reaches of the galaxy.
With reference to the line of demarcation laid down in the preceding article, it is understood that the island known as Prince of Wales Island belongs wholly to Alaska, a Free and Independent Nation=State.
The remainder of the Covenant will be posted at a later time.
