Four Types of American Nationals

There are four types of American Nationals recognized under federal law.

1) Stautory "nationals and citizens of the "United States"***{2} at birth" (statutory "U.S.**{2} citizen")

  • A CIVIL status because it uses the word "citizen" and is therfore tied to a geographical place.
  • A statutory privileged staus defined and found in 8 U.S.C. Sec 1401, in the implementing regulations of the Internal Revenue Code at 26 C.F.R. Sec. 1.1-1(c), and in most other federal statutes.
  • Born in the federal zone. Must inhabit the District of Columbia and the territories and possesions of the United States identified in Title 48 of the U.S. Code. (See also 26 U.S.C. Sec. 7701(a)(9), (a)(10) and 8 U.S.C. Sec. 1101(a)(36) and 4 U.S.C. Sec 110(d) and 20 C.F.R. Chap. 11 Subpart B 422.103(b)(2)(2))
  • Subject to the "police power" of the federal government and all "acts of Congress".
  • Treated as a citizen of the municiple government of the District of Columbia. (See 26 U.S.C. Sec. 7701(a)(39)) (Municiple - Instance Court of Admiralty!)
  • Have No common law rights, because there is no federal common law. (See Jones v. Mayer, 392 U.S. 409 (1798))
  • Also called "federal U.S. citizens".
  • Owe allegience to the GOVERNMENT of the United States**{2} and NOT the PEOPLE of the States of the Union, who are called United States***{3}.

2) Stautory "nationals but not citizens of the "United States"***{2} at birth" (where "United States" or "U.S." means the federal United States)

  • A CIVIL status because it uses the word "citizen" and is therfore tied to a geographical place.
  • Defined in 8 U.S.C. Sec. 1101(a)(22)(B) and 8 U.S.C. Sec. 1452.
  • Born anywhere in American Samoa or Swain Island.
  • May not participate politically in federal elections or as federal jurists.
  • Owe allegience to the GOVERNMENT of the United States**{2} and NOT the PEOPLE of the States if the Union, who are called United States***{3}.

3) Stautory "national of the "United States"***{2}"

  • A POLITICAL status not tied to a geogrphical place. Allegience can exist independent of geography.
  • Defined under federal law pursuant to 8 U.S.C. Sec. 1101(a)(22).
  • Includes STATUTORY "citizens of the United States**{2}" defined in 8 U.S.C. 1101(a)(22)(A).
  • Includes "a person who, though not a citizen of the United States[**{2}], owes permanent allegience to the United States**{2}" defined in 8 U.S.C. 1101(a)(22)(B). The use of the term "person" is suspicious as only living men and woman, human biengs can owe allegience and not created fictions of Congress called "persons", all of whom are offices in the government. If it means a CONSTITUTIONAL "person" then it is OK, because all constitutional "persons" are living men and woman, human beings.

4) "nationals of the "United States"***{3}", "State nationals", or "nationals of the United States of America"

  • A POLITICAL status not tied to a geogrphical place. Allegience can exist independent of geography.
  • Defined under federal law pursuant to 8 U.S.C. Sec. 1101(a)(21), under Law of Nations, under state laws, and under U.S.A. Constitution.
  • Is equivalent to the term "state citizen" or "american citizen", "the people", a 14th Ammendent "citizen of the United States".
  • In general, born in any one of the several states of the Union but not in a federal terrirtory, possesion, or the District of Columnbia. Not domiciled in the federal zone.
  • Not subject to the "police power" of the federal government of most "acts of Congress".
  • Owes allegience to the sovereign people, collectively and indivudually, within the body politic of the constitutional state republic residing in.
  • May serve as a state jurist or grand jurist involving only parties with his/her same citizenship and domestic status..
  • May vote in state elections.
  • At this time, all "state Nationals" are also a "USA National". But not all "USA Nationals" are a "state National". (Example: a USA national not residing nor domicled in a state of the Union)
  • Is a living man or woman whose unalienable nantural rights are recognized, secured, and protected by his/her state constitution against state actions and against federal intrusion by the Constitution of the United States of America.
