Maxims of Law
   
   Throughout the history of Western civilization there have existed    certain principles of law which have become established as rules or  "maxims" of law.   Maxims have prevailed for centuries & accepted  as being true for a particular situation.  Sir Edward Coke said:
            "A Maxim is so called because its dignity is chiefest, and its
            authority the most certain, and because universally approved by all."
   Maxims are frequently used in law texts and court decisions.
This book contains over 1600 maxims which are listed under 105    subject headings. The book also contains over 300 Latin words   and phrases commonly used in law and their English meaning.
   This is an excellent reference guide for anyone one who wants to    use the law, or have a better understanding of legal principles.

A Treatise on Arrest and False Imprisonment
Whenever one is deprived of their liberty it is called an "imprisonment."   When this deprivation is done unlawfully it is a "false imprisonment."  For   over 1000 years the Common Law had a settled law and procedure by which   one can be deprived of his liberty. This law and procedure is part of due   process and as such cannot be changed by legislative statute.  This book   proves that most arrests today are "false imprisonments." Contents include:
  • Definition of False Imprisonment, Damages, and Liberty.
  • Arrest without Warrant -- Such arrest are allowed only in case of known felony or breach of peace, not misdemeanor violations.
  • Breach of the Peace and Felony Arrests -- What constitutes the acts.
  • Defenses to an Unlawful Arrest -- Arguments that police can and cannot raise to justify an arrest.
  • The Use of a Warrant -- The criteria for a lawful warrant.
  • Bringing the Arrested Person before a Magistrate -- If this is not done immediately, the arrest is unlawful.
  • Distortions of Fundamental Law -- How the law on the subjects of  due process, resisting arrest, booking, and handcuffing are distorted or not properly followed.

THE  LAW
        This famous treatise on the law was written by the French   economist, statesmen and author Frederic Bastiat in 1850. It was   written and published as a pamphlet to combat the rising tide of   socialism which was spreading throughout Europe at that time (the Communist Manifesto was written in 1848).  Mr. Bastiat   analyzes the humanistic concepts &  harmful results of socialism, and shows what the law really is and how it benefits society.
         The Law was once used as a text book to explain the   principles of law, justice, politics and economics. It is as timely   today as it was in 1850, because the same socialist-communist   ideas and plans that were adopted in France are now sweeping   America, and are again trying to supplant the true law.

The Unconstitutionality of the 14th Amendment
 
Practically all of the distortions in law and reversals of original  American principles that exist today are due to the legal interpretation of the 14th Amendment.  This booklet explains various reasons why  the most used Amendment today was never constitutionally enacted  and adopted as part of the U.S. Constitution.   Points out the various  acts of subversion and corruption committed by Congress in 1866-68.

The Authority of Law
 
Throughout history all laws enacted, from the laws of God to edits   of kings and councils, have been prefaced by an enacting clause,   which is necessary to give a law its authority, identity and validity.
Most "law" today exists by way of various codes or revised   statutes, which fail to use this required enacting authority.  This   makes these statutory works invalid, and they thus have no force   and effect as law.
Due to this all criminal prosecutions, both State and Federal, are   groundless, and courts are without subject matter jurisdiction to   render judgment. Here is legal proof that the U.S. Code and State   Codes or Revised Statutes are not law, and that they are not   binding upon citizens.
