The Diplomatic and Consular Immunity Booklet is Not Discussing US Nationals



Thank you to Presley for drawing my attention to Diplomatic and Consular Immunity: Guidance for Law Enforcement and Judicial Authorities, which refers to privileges and immunities for diplomats. Here is a sign.  The US National operates in the realm of Rights/Duties, not privileges and “you owe me” kind of duty to the State.

In this text, we learn that we may search the Diplomatic Relation Act (22 U. S. C. 254) and the International Organizations Immunities Act (22 U. S. C. 2881) to seek possible information documented on US Nationals who are international to the Fourteenth Amendment and Congress’ legalese.

Unfortunately, this document does not discuss US Nationals who are non-residents and are foreign to the Fourteenth Amendment and the bondservant-making of those who are legal residents in the United States.  On page 9, the nationals that are mentioned here refer to nationals of countries in general, not to the US National.  Examples are, “…are nationals of the sending country,” and “…its own nationals, legal permanent residents.”  They clearly define this national. 

On page 12, the national mentioned here is the US Citizen who works as consular for a diplomat to the USA.  Again, this national is referred to as a “legal permanent resident.”  US Nationals are lawful non-resident aliens.  Again, “…provided they are not US nationals,” under “Bilateral Agreements” is referring to US Citizens.

However, one nice weapon we have gained from this booklet is learned in the first footnote.  “[The officers’] responsibility is to assume that the appropriate degree of immunity is afforded once the person concerned has been precisely identified.”  This means those police working the Long Beach airport "beat" should not have ignored me when I was trying to identify myself.  They did not want to “precisely identify” me through my paperwork, my affidavit on file with their police chief, nor with a call to  their station to have the Pass System read my passport card.

Another interesting lesson was that the Department of State does issue identification cards with information that is readily available to be read by an officer on the spot if the Department of State recognizes that person as a diplomat. It seems they purposely do not identify the US National because there is no open card given to them.

I have three files to look through: the two mentioned above and the tax information.  All is not lost.  We may find more supportive documents, yet.  But so far, US Nationals are not mentioned here within this document.

Here are my comments.

This is information for US Citizens who may not be aware that they are US Citizens because the greedy IRS wants its money from them.  Some U.S. citizens, born in the United States to foreign parents or born outside the United States to U.S. citizen parents, may be unaware of their status as U.S. citizens or the consequences of such status. By law, U.S. citizens, regardless of whether they live in the United States or abroad, are required to report and pay to the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) all applicable taxes on their worldwide income, including on their income from foreign financial assets.

I saw nothing that pertains to what is called the US National.  We are not expatriating.  On one side of the coin is US Citizen.  On the other is US National (not including the Samoans and such who are only non-citizen Nationals). We are simply sending a clear message to the Department of State that we do not identify as bondservants under a de facto Fourteenth Amendment.

7/5/2022 added that national, here, too is meaning “a person from” a place, but we may manipulate it and use it for our sake as US Nationals for two reasons: 1) agents of the government may be speaking to non-citizen nationals and to US Nationals and 2) there is no definition of this national such as “resident” and talk of driver’s license, etc.

"(21)

The term “national” means a person owing permanent allegiance to a state.

(22)

The term “national of the United States” means (A) a citizen of the United States, or (B) a person who, though not a citizen of the United States, owes permanent allegiance to the United States."

 

7/7/2022 added National here is US National and non-citizen national. See after "II Petitioner is an Alien" if you don't want to read the whole case like I just did.
