Sovereign Citizens who genuinely try stuff like this should be deported to their own country on sight.

/yes, I know that would mean being pushed out to sea on a raft
//and denied re-entry into this hostile nation that they wish no part of
///or you know, improve the mental healthcare standards so they get the help they obviously need

"Lamont Butler, aka Lamont Maurice L, claimed the mansion for himself. He even provided documents provided by the so-called Moorish National Republic to back it up," the CBS report said.

What a big dummy.

It's probably a good thing that they aren't trying this shiat in Kansas. It would not go well for them.

How is anything about this not illegal?  At the very least fraud, or attempted theft.

People who do try this crap need to end up with their heads on spikes as a warning to others.

I'm following two court cases here from these folks. A married couple that started sending these "Moorish Republic" documents to every public official they could after the wife was pulled over for speeding in a school zone. She did not cooperate, funnily enough.

According to them, they now own all public buildings in the city. The official owe them $10 trillion - each.

If they tried taking over houses here, they'd be shot.

The Southern Poverty Law Center identifies the Moorish Sovereign Citizens as an extremist group, saying members, "...believe their status as members of a sovereign nation imparts immunity from federal, state and local authorities."

"Their group believes that they own all of the land between Alaska and Argentina and all the islands in between. Unfortunately, Edmonds falls between that land," said McClure.


An African-American extremist group believes it owns two continents, therefore displacing the native groups and all other current residents.  Who wins this round of the intersectional olympics?

They 'took over' homes that had an open house.  As such it is a lot harder to charge them with trespassing.

Hard to claim fraud when the 'documents' they show make no claim to be USA legal documents.   Also can't arrest my niece for printing out "Official Juliette's Deed of Ownership" for her barbie doll house".

Basically, they walk a fine line between doing what's legal and what is expected.

But foolish people may believe their docs are real etc., causing problems.

The proper way to deal with this is to pass a law that refusing to recognize the US government's legal right to govern is grounds for deportation.

But then we have the issue of convincing another country to take these idiots.

Came across this training guide on how to handle sovereign citizens (including Moorish) by some motor vehicle administrators association. It's pretty good.

Claiming to be a sovereign citizen then talking about Constitutional Rights makes no sense.  But logic was never one of their strong points.

Um...

Members of the Moorish sovereigns, called Moors, have come into conflict with federal and state authorities over their refusal to obey laws and government regulations. Recently, Moorish sovereign citizens have engaged in violent confrontations with law enforcement. They have also been known to retaliate against government authorities through financial means - a process called "paper terrorism." Moorish sovereigns espouse an interpretation of sovereign doctrine that African Americans constitute an elite class within American society with special rights and privileges that convey on them a sovereign immunity placing them beyond federal and state authority.

They leave when asked.  So far not a crime.

There you go.
They will be given plenty of warnings, before getting slaps on the wrist, and cops will bend over backwards to let them keep doing what they do.

I thought I read somewhere that a smaller percentage oof gun owners own more than one gun. Meaning that if there ae 500 guns and 100 gun owners, 20 percent own 75 percent of the guns.

Yeah add in criminal trespass, in some cases B&E, could probably add destruction of property and a bunch of tiny little things like they would do if it was a minority. I am sure using false documents is a crime somehow, someone needs to shoot one or two of them.

I never heard of the Maryland one, most of the people like this live out in the western part of the state or the eastern shore, maybe a bunch in the area of Waldorf.

They claim all the land between Alaska and Argentina, but only try to pull this shiat in the rich neighborhoods of Oregon? I wonder why...

When they successfully prove their claim in Buenos Aires or Mexico City, we might give them a hearing. Until then, GTFO.
