What you are about to read below shows a genuine
movement of voters within Washington State that have legally voted to
create their own new county, entitled "Freedom County." Such actions have the
Washington Legislature up in arms over whether such county now really exists.
The resulting conflict has driven researchers to dig into the archives of
Washington, D.C. and Washington State to find that Constitutionally, the current
Legislature does not exist, and that all law passed since 1889 are not
laws. This will prove to be an interesting story to follow in the unfolding of
The People v. The Legislature.
A Tale Of Two
Freedom County And the Trail of Two
Compiled by Hari Heath,

We all know government isn't what it is
supposed to be. .... If the power to tax, is the power to destroy, then the
power to regulate is the power to devastate. The administrative agents
in the "State of Washington" provide ample evidence of
such destruction and devastation.
Fed up with taxation and regulation by
unaccountable agents of the administrative corporation known as the STATE
OF WASHINGTON, the people in what is now known as
Freedom County Washington have done something
Over 13,000 Freedom county citizens withdrew
their consent to be governed by Snohomish County on April 23,
1995. Freedom County has about 60,000 people living in it and
Snohomish County retained several hundred thousand citizens after the new
Under the provisions of the 1889 Washington
Constitution in Article I Sec. 1 "all political power is inherent in the
people, governments derive their just powers from the consent of
the governed and are established to protect and maintain
individual rights." Article I Sec. 29 provides, "that the provisions of
this constitution are mandatory, unless by express words they
are declared to be otherwise." Article XI Sec. 3 provides
that counties may only be created by petition of a majority of
the voters living in the area, and the change cannot leave the
old county with fewer then 4000 people, and the new county can have no
less then 2000 people. Article XI Sec. 4 mandates that "the legislature
SHALL establish a system of County government, which SHALL be
throughout the State. The Secretary of State certified
the Freedom County petitioners had more than a majority of the voters
signatures, around 72%. The legislature acted by omission to deny the
people government to which they consent. So the People by the "Law of
Necessity" and the reserved power under Article II Sec. 1, enacted
legislation independent of the legislature to correct the legislatures
unconstitutional omission of duty.
Freedom County is establishing its government
and at this point asserting limited jurisdiction
over private property rights, land use, zoning and planning. Professional
politicians of course do not want the people to realize that the power
really belongs to the people and not the professional
On October 23rd the Freedom County organizers
met in Arlington Washington at the Rome Restaurant to take their
official Oaths of Office for the newest county in Washington State. An
update of developments with the new county was explained by Freedom County
Commissioner, Thom Satterlee. The new interim Sheriff, Fnu Lnu, Auditor,
Bob Westphal, and Coroner, Duane Felix became officers of the new
county while 60-80 people, plus reporters for radio, TV and print media
overflowed the meeting room.
After the brief ceremony, a few questions were
fielded. One questioner was Daniel Anderson, a City Councilman of
Arlington, formerly in Snohomish County but now made part of
Freedom County, who wore a shirt with "Freedom County" in a red
circle with a line through it. He was trying to attack the credibility of
the new county, but Commissioner Satterlee answered each point of his
questions, which gave Commissioner Satterlee the forum to crystallize just
what Freedom county and its officials have done, are doing and can
Commissioner Satterlee did very well, as
Councilman Anderson did not appear to know much of what he was talking
about, except as he had read about it in the Everett Herald paper that
morning. It seemed that his status of Councilman was threatened by
this new uninvited County holding a meeting in His town. Mr.
Anderson swore that he knew and loved the Constitutions, but he
couldn't answer simple questions about them. He made a rather quick
In the spirit of Freedom a new county, with
consent from the governed, has become a lawful reality. But now it begins
to get interesting. As Snohomish County, and the news media claim
that Freedom County does not lawfully exist, recent
discoveries present an entirely new question. Which "State" is this
new County in?
An Interesting Thing Happened on the way
to the Archives.
A legal research team has uncovered ample
evidence that the "1889" State Constitution published in the State's
Publication, the Revised Code of Washington (RCW), may be the
wrong constitution! Researchers found a different constitution in
the State Archives. No small detail, when you consider that
the Constitution is the basis for the existence of
According to the State Archivist, a lawful
constitution created in Walla Walla, was voted on and accepted by the
people of Washington Territory on November 5th 1878, and was
lawfully submitted to Congress as the Constitution of the
Washington republic as it applied to Congress for membership in the
union (Art IV Sections 3 and 4 - U.S. Const.). A review of
the Congressional Record confirmed that the 1878 constitution is
in fact the one submitted to Congress for membership in the
union. This 1878 Constitution was published by the Senate of the
United States of America as the Constitution of the Washington
that applied for membership in the union, and was subsequently
admitted as the 42nd member of the United States through the Enabling Act
upon execution of the directions of the act by President Benjamin
Will the Real Constitution please Stand Up?
Problem with the 1889 Constitution has now surfaced from another source -
the archives in Washington D.C. Several people have requested, and finally
received a certified copy of the Constitution of the State of Washington
that is on record as being the official Constitution for the acceptance of
Washington into the Union. It is NOT the Constitution for 1889.
The research team has copies of Congressional
documents which unequivocally state that the "legislature" of a state and
any actions of the "legislature are held in abeyance as having
NO force and effect of law, until that state's constitution is
presented to and published by Congress and subsequently the state
is accepted into the union of states. It now appears that Only
the Walla Walla 1878 constitution meets all of these criteria! And
what legislative actions are therefore void? Anything passed by
a government formed under the "so-called" 1889 Constitution, i.e.,
laws of the STATE OF WASHINGTON.
The evidence regarding the 2 Constitutions has
been published in the Pierce county records, Auditor's file
