    I don't understand the argument being made about the Oath, it seems to only focus on the final section of the Article, and ignores the preceding paragraphs, which make it clear, at least in my mind, that the Oath must be made within 10 days of taking office, i.e. at the date (or within 10 days) of appointment, and not upon request.

    The poor fella also seems to be entirely unaware that most, if not all, of what are considered our natural rights - which I believe from previous posts he may be referring to as common law, in the sense that they are common to us as man, and not the actual common law - derived from Judicial Decisions, and it is by virtue of the Courts recognition of such rights that such have the force of Law within our society.

    Its common knowledge that natural rights exist independent of positive law, but 'knowledge of' and 'enforcement of' are entirely different concepts. I can't see what it is hoped to achieve by declaring the obvious (i.e. I am a man) as a defence to Society's obligation/right to protect the natural rights of all members of society.

    It might serve his interests more to have a read of Hobbes 'Leviathan'.

    All of this because a guy wants to get off a speeding fine.

    These Freeman lads just make me laugh. They're entirely clueless.

    not entirely clueless . misguided? yes
    seeing the 300% increase in incaracarations for petty matters and debts since 2007 somone has to make a stand before the private prisons arrive
    and it trebles again imo.....

    This guy wasn't taking a stand. He was trying to get out of a speeding fine with some nonsense that he read on the internet most likely.

    I have no time for these messers. And why do they talk like that? "Bobby of the family Sludds" - do they want to be in Lord of the Rings?

    Anyway he had to admit he was wrong before they let him go. I know he probably thinks he 'beat the system' now but really he just looks like a bit of a fool. Perhaps he'll be able to brag about it on his Bebo page with his other Free Man friends later but I'd say he'll still wind up paying the fine.

    There's a thread in conspiracy theories on the freeman stuff

    http://www.boards.ie/vbulletin/showthread.php?t=2056176197&page=56
    its quite simple really, you seem to believe that Freemen want to live in a world without ANY Laws, thats simply not the case, as you have pointed out a Freeman is bound by the LAWS of the country he resides in, in this Case BUNREACHT NA hÉIREANN

    however thats All a Freeman is bound by, now can you show me where it says in the Constitution that the Long Mile Road is a 40K zone??

    Rob Menard from Canada was up until recently selling idiotic advice, I and others have virtually eliminated him from the internet as his arguments have been destroyed, he just posts on his facebook page now, he sold Lance Thatcher legal advice for $800 dollars which got poor lance in all sorts of trouble

    I have some questions on the freeman stuff, could someone answer them?

    So what these freeman websites do is to put up a load of stuff with some true facts in it, then manipulate the content to make it look that these laws can't be applied to the people. Am i getting this right?

    Have they ever won a case in court by using this 'produce your oath' type stuff?

    and do the gardai have to give you some pledge/oath if you ask them to, when they approach you? and do the have to state the reason for their questioning/arrest of a person?

    They will say that they're not manipulating you, they are showing you the truth. Unfortunately they are not telling you the truth. What they say is false. I won't call it a lie as that implies that they know they are telling you a falsehood but what they are saying is absolutely incorrect.
    batistuta9 wrote: »

    No. Never. They will say otherwise but again they are wrong/lying/tell porkies. They will link you to blurry videos of someone trying it but they never show you the actual outcome of the case. Usually it's text telling you how he won to the sound of the Garda/Police Officer removing the freeman from Court and holding him in contempt before the Court deals with him later.

    The Gardai do not have to give you any oath or pledge. That's complete nonsense. Nor does a judge or anyone else for that matter. Gardai do have to tell you why they are arresting you and under what power but that is a duty wholly unconnected to any false notion of "dealing with honor" that Freemen espouse.

    Just wondering...if this guy has a bank account/passport in the name of Bobby Sludds but still claims that he is not Bobby Sludds could he be done for identity theft or have his bank account frozen until the real Bobby Sludds takes ownership of it? Similarly Derry above. If he is on the dole I assume he is claiming it using the name on his birth cert and not in the form Derry of the family... If he ended up in court and refused to acknowledge the name he was summoned under could he have all his benefits stopped?


    If the car he was in is registered to him and he has it registered as bobby sludds and not bobby of the family sludds then he could potentially be done for giving a false declaration of ownership perhaps?
    just a thought...

    and what exactly happens now? has he been let off?

    Mr. Sludds is charged with a number of motoring offences including driving without insurance, licence or NCT and failing to stop his vehicle after being asked to do so by a garda at The Ballagh on April 28, 2010.

    Serious enough charges.... this is going to end in tears, Mr Sludds tears.

    - No matter which way it goes, freemen will call it a victory.

    - Freeman preachers, rarely practise what they preach and have very little evidence to show that their 'stuff' works.

    - Even if a garda or judge carries his oath around with them I don't see how that could affect the outcomes of their dealings with gardaí or judges.

    - The freeman belief system is a paradox in itself. The very people they complain of having problems with, could easily turn it around and use freeman nonsense against the freeman.

    No, he still has to appear before the DC on Road Traffic charges. Not sure when/where though.

    Exactly, just play them at their own game, create a scenario where they have their very own freeman community and use all their own arguments against them by becoming a freeman in their society.
    Watch them squirm as the realisation occasionaly hits them.

    Slightly off topic but another freeman is up in court tomorrow.

    Apparently he was arrested by ten gardaí and there is a special sitting in Waterford just for him. Surely he must have committed some serious offences if true???

    That sitting was this morning (Tuesday 30/8) and not tomorrow (Wednesday 31/8) and would have been just the regular vacation sitting at Waterford District Court, so nothing special tbh

    There are some schools of thought that say the Name such as MR JOE BLOGGS or similar is a commercial Incorporated name .
    That leads to the idea that using the name Joe of the family Bloggs or similar will remove the commercial incorporated link from the name .
    This comes from the fact that when a baby is born there is a birth certificate issued which registers the birth of the baby JOE BLOGGS
    The parents sign the birth certificate and as result hand over ownership of the baby to the state similar to when a ship is registered the registered ship is now owned by the state .The baby is then licensed by the state to be brought up by the parents if they remain suitable .If the parents err don't educate the child by sending it to school or abuse it the the state will take the the child away ( seeing as they own the baby they can take it away. It often why the state would rarely interfere in traveller families in the past as they did not own those kids as they didn't take out birth certificates)
    Because the baby is owned by the state the state have insured that the child has got a commercial Incorporated title attached to it . This incorporated title is the name of the baby in capitals MR JOE BLOGGS or MISS JANE BLOGGS. ( Check your driving licence it in capitals MR JOE BLOGGS )
    As the court system is commercial court contract law corporation A has dispute with corporation B the judge can only be a judge when he has two corporations in dispute to judge
    Humans cant be normally in commercial courts only corporations unless the human is stupid and say yes I am MR JOE BLOGGS.
    If the Human say yes my name is MR JOPE BLOGGS he turns himself from a human into a person . A corporation can be classed as person so therefore a person can be a corporation. Anyway the way all the dim wits fall into the trap going into courts is saying my name is MR. JOE BLOGGS etc. .
    So the trick is not to say your name in court and therefore there isn't two corporations in the court room so the case cant continue.
    However it is as best as more expert people in TNS ( tir na soir ,land of the free ) www.tnsradio.ning.com) that admitting to any name such as JOE of the Family BLOGGS will allow them to conjoin the name to make JOE BLOGGS and convert the person into a corporation
    As a result TNS cant recommend that solution . However other freeman movements suggest different .
    Hope that helps you but if not look at TNS and see the info and decide for yourself.

    Freeman theology is like chinese whispers. It changes daily.

    I did some research on it. Mainly, it seems to come from the US, where it could actually work. The idea behind it is good and valid. The application, in general, falls flat on it's face.

    I watched a Youtube video from someone (according to links) is highly respected in the Freeman world. His take on the name issue - it doesn't matter a damn what you call yourself. Joe Bloggs, Joe of the Family Bloggs, Joe, son of bob, of the family bloggs, etc ... all mean the exact same thing. What you call yourself, is what you call yourself, aside from which, it's actually the name given to you by your own parents. :rolleyes:

    The idea behind freeman is to do no harm and be indebted to no man. By that reasoning, a freeman should not be claiming social welfare, shouldn't be using medical cards, shouldn't accept a state pension, etc.

    While this can certainly work in the US, it's not what the "freeman" group of Ireland take from it. They want social welfare, medical cards, state pensions, etc, but just don't want to abide by the laws they don't agree with.

    Some of them charged for classes in their theology in the States.
    And a few even went so far as to set up a kinda paramilitary operation.

    Unfortunately I have heard of some of them having public meetings under the guise of "Debt Management Advice" recently. To me its dangerous as it can result in people acting in an outrageous manner, out of sheer desperation perhaps, but believing that they are within the law.

    In this case, a supermarket owner placed someone acting on behalf of AIB under "citizens arrest" for trespassing (she was taking over his premises on behalf of the Reciever). He was doing so while "live on the air" with that TNS radio crowd.
