Who are really the ones committing crimes? Keep these handy. Consider who they apply to and when.

Federal criminal statutes:

18 U.S.C. – Federal Criminal Code sections of interest to Americans:

If you know of felonies being committed and fail to report them YOU can go to jail. Did you know that? Do you want your country back? So why aren’t you reporting crimes when government agents exceed authority and break the law? Too many Americans are going to jail for laws and under charges the government technically prove apply to the American citizen (but they are good at getting Americans to volunteer for submission to them). Therefore, learn and consider how to file criminal complaints, if you witness the commission of a felony. If it’s the DOJ and the Attorney General committing the felony, the law clearly requires you to report it as a possible crime to other government authority. So, if a government collection agency takes money that isn’t owed, or demands a penny more that is actually owed, ask yourself what crimes are being committed? Who has the duty to the American public – they do?
