Purported Clerk of Court forecloses absent a Note or prope r Oath of Office
Check your State statutes to see what applies when a public officer doesn't take/have the prescribed oath. For example, in North Carolina it's General Statute § 14-229:
Acting as officer before qualifying as such.
If any officer shall enter on the duties of his office before he executes and delivers to the authority entitled to receive the same the bonds required by law, and qualifies by taking and subscribing and filing in the proper office the oath of office prescribed, he shall be guilty of a Class 1 misdemeanor and shall be ejected from his office. (Code, s. 79; Rev., s. 3565; C.S., s. 4383; 1999-408, s. 2.)

- This is a pretty good one since they have declared it a crime to not take
the oath. However, at least for those in other states, be aware that in
some states, Arkansas is one, even though there is a requirement to take an
oath, the courts in Arkansas have found that the failure to take the oath or
to qualify in other ways, does NOT invalidate any actions taken by that
person while performing the duties of that office. They are declared de
facto officers and all acts performed in accordance with the duties of that
office are valid.
In states where the courts have found this to be true, there
is no point in any public officer taking the oath of office. Why subject
yourself to the possibility of being charged with violating your oath of
office when you legally operate in the office without it? I havent looked
into any other states, but I wouldnt be surprised to see the same in many

they still don't take it. I cannot quote off the top of my head, but
one of the founding fathers is reputed to have said, paraphrased, that
people will take as much as they can before they break and rebel against
the foolishness. Popeye used to say, "that's all I can stands; I can't
stands no more!" So let's get this straight, from the beginning, oaths
were required to transform the mere neighbor into the superior officer.
Then a judge said, "Nah! Why worry about it?" and from then on, the
people that used to be known as impersonators had tons of legal
competition? I don't think so because it would be "unconstitutional" to
disregard a constitutional requirement. Judges cannot amend the
constitution, state or federal, that way. But people may waive rights
and fail to object timely in the Initial Moment Of Confrontation (do you
see the whites of their eyes yet?) (Be ready to object timely every
moment of every day with anyone.) Fail to do it, and the record might
prove it, that you failed to do it. Make all the record the
constitution requires, and those who don't have little to fall back on
except that willingness to suffer violations of rights without objection
that people seem to have adopted as the new political correctness.
I get a real kick out of, "Yeah, we used to have to do it; then the
court said we don't, and we of course go along with that because we are
snookered into waiving our right to conduct our own "one supreme" court
and allowing professional BAR attorneys to interplead and insinuate
themselves into our affairs without objection, because, after all,
nobody ever told us to do differently, and since we hardly know what it
is to experience the rights of a Tom Jefferson, can we be blamed for
letting that right slip away from us??"
I love hearing how, "the bad judge did this; the bad judge did that" and
I wonder, "how did the disqualification proceedings go down?" "Huh?
Disqualification proceedings? What are they?" They're where you call a
spade a spade and a fraud a fraud, even though it might hurt some
feelings and make people mad at you and cause the pizza to get cold
before it can be consumed as planned. But most people waive all rights
if asked to do so in a stern but compassionate voice by a self-righteous
authority figure of any stripe, and there are a large percentage of
humans who think that they should affect the actions of the rest of us.
Some use law as an excuse to do it and obviously, some do it no matter
what the law says, as long as "the judge" says they can. Many times I
have heard, "tell it to the judge". Now I plan to make it known that if
not immediately released I will be expecting to tell it to him within
the hour, mileage and transportation permitting. Then I will be on
another fun hunt for the Big Bux. I will be on the hunt for a qualified
individual acting as an accessory and co-conspirator to the fine
specimen already in my clutches (mutual citizens' arrest, with my
charges usually exceeding theirs). Now, they know this. How often do
you think I have IMOCs anymore? If I have one, it is an accident like
stepping on a rattlesnake. But I know that rattlesnakes do not always
bite. Some like novel situations. I have several people "on the
inside" who are able to rattle for me so that I am not stepped on. You
do NOT want to tread on me, as I was left for dead and have nothing to
lose. My remaining time "is ALL GOOD" as they say. "Bring it on!" as
Bush said. But I got a phone call: "all we want is peace". I said, "me
too!" and things have been groovy ever since, except for that one time
when they arrived in force not knowing whose place they were invading,
and I disqualified them on the spot with NO rebuttal or later hostile
actions. And this was long enough ago to know the issue is dead. So
my current personal belief is, "we get the government we deserve." And
there are all sorts of "realities" out there. Today I heard about a
lady who gave her 15-year-old granddaughter a $5 gold piece. The girl
opened a bank account with it, balance: $5. The kind bank who accepted
the coin at face value (and the teller who most likely took it home) was
Fell's Wargo. How can you stop weird stuff like that, or anything?!
All you can do is rule yourself, and not others. You don't need to wait
for anyone to join you. They won�t. So you have to stand up for
yourself, and do it ASAP, in the IMOC. Try it; you'll like it (after
the initial shock wears off)(shock that it actually is TRUE!). But fail
to act timely; waive rights and then try to recover them, and I expect a
"Your mileage may vary", as they say. I say I deserve everything Tom
Jefferson had in the way of rights of Englishmen.

act, and withhold cooperation. Even REAL judges can be disqualified!!
That's why the laws for doing it are there! But who REALLY reads law
books to learn these things but nerds on specialty e-mail study groups
and lists like this one? I'm the only one on my block to know this
stuff! Big block too, about 1/2 mile on a side.

to be required to be able to be invalidated by one man, or a few men,
without regard to the will of the people expressed through the
legislature that wrote what used to be the law? I have a feeling that
nobody really objected timely in whatever case is being used as the
excuse for the constitutional amendment "de facto". (Hahahaha!)

Look up the methods of amending constitutions where you live. You won't
find that method listed. But people will permit an awful lot before
they stand up and fight back. Most won't even fight verbally.

taking of the oath that transforms the mere neighbor into the officer
with powers of the office. Otherwise, what does? 6 out of 10 believe
he is the officer, so democracy wins? NBC and CBS announced he was the
officer, so he must be? He received the paycheck of the officer and
cashed it? That must be it then! So now how do we identify
impersonators? The public records used to do it are sabotaged. You
know what? THE GAME IS OVER, PEOPLE!!! When the Berlin Wall came down
and the Soviet Union tyranny faded into history, many KGB employees
showed up for work the next day and wanted instructions for further
action. Flash forward to America today...the empire is mortally wounded
and dying a slow death. The fraud has become systemic.
Prepare to take care of yourself.
