CHARTER – A grant made by the sovereign either to the whole people or to a portion of them, securing to them the enjoyment of certain rights. Of the former kind is the late charter of France, which extended to the whole country; the charters which were granted to the different American colonies by the British government were charters of the latter species. 1 Story, Const. L. 161; 1 Bl. Com. 108 Encycl. Amer. Charte Constitutionelle.

2. A charter differs from a CONSTITUTION in this; the former is granted by the sovereign, while the latter is established by the people themselves. Both are the fundamental law of the land.

3. This term is susceptible of another signification. During the Middle Ages almost every document was called carta, charta, or chartula. In this sense the term is nearly synonymous with deed. Co. Litt. 6; 1 Co. 1; Moor. Cas. 687.

4. The act of the legislature creating a corporation is called its charter. Vide 3 Bro. Civ. and Adm. Law, 188; Dane’s Ab. h. t.

The Chartered “UNITED STATES” Constitution Act, 1867 /the State of Texas 1876/THE STATE OF TEXAS 1996”

Law of Contracts and the 1871 Municipal UNITED STATES Corp.

FORTY FIRST CONGRESS SESSION III; CHAPTER 62, 1871; CHAP. LXII An act to provide a Government for the District of Columbia.

In 1871 Congress exercised this power by legislating the organization of a municipal corporation to run the day to day affairs of the District of Columbia, the seat of government.  The proper name of this municipal corporation is UNITED STATES. Congress adopted the text of the federal constitution as the constitution or charter of this municipal corporation.

Section 28  And be it further enacted, That the said legislative assembly shall have the power to create by general law, modify, repeal, or amend, within said District, corporations aggregate for religious, charitable, educational, industrial, or commercial purposes, and to define their powers and liabilities: Provided, That the powers of corporations so created shall be limited to the District of Columbia.

NOTE: The Corporate UNITED STATES has no Jurisdiction outside of the Washington, D.C. Ten miles square as the last sentence reads above:

The 1845, 1866, 1869, 1876, 1996 State of Texas Charters are documents that government created as a deception during the period of time that a document from a United States foreign government was, with due pomp and ceremony, brought to this country and deceptively and criminally adopted as our so called Constitution.

Since the Texian people had nothing to do with these documents, they are nothing to us.  It is at best deception and at worst treason for which those behind these deceptions should be dealt with as Traitors. I personally believe that they should all be incarcerated for life and I believe you would agree if you truly realized the number of lives that have been lost as a result of their activities and understood how this was accomplished through the use of, and with the utmost violations of, the document called the organic 1836 Constitution for the republic of Texas (The only certified Constitution of Texas) and the unlawful transfer of the Texian People’s government money creation responsibilities there under, to the privately owned banks.

Since we the people were granted all rights by our creator, then the government is in no position to grant us rights, we already have them all. The only thing government can do is eradicate our rights and they do it one at a time, so we will not notice.  Every legal law with color that is passed by government is evidence of just one or more of our rights being transferred to them.  Soon, if we are not already there, we will have absolutely no rights to exercise of our own free-will. I hope you will start thinking and reply to me by citing a free will right that you feel we still have.

Below are historical quotes from documentations I, Ed Brannum, Texian National, found throughout Texas history; documents so stating which are Constitutions and which were actually Charters.

“The 1845 charter was the only one of the five Texas state constitutions to assign to the legislature the appointment of the treasurer, comptroller of public accounts, and district attorneys, but this was changed by an amendment ratified in 1850.”

“The Eighth Legislature (1859-61), called into special session by Governor Sam Houston, authorized retroactively the Secession Convention whose ordinance of secession from the United States was approved by the voters on February 23, 1861 Three to one for secession and the State of Texas joined the Confederacy soon thereafter. To conform to the new order, the Secession Convention adopted amendments to the 1845 charter, which as amended, is customarily referred to as the Constitution of 1861

Note; (under the republic of Texas it is called a constitution 1861); After the Civil War the United States in 1865 declared that the Texian people’s secession vote in 1861 was null and void and placed Texas under the War reconstruction act 1866 (Military Law) which the 5th Army is still in effect today.

“Following cessation of armed hostilities, a new constitution, also in the form of amendments incorporated in the 1845 charter, was drafted in 1866 by a convention elected under presidential Reconstruction..qv

“Following ratification of the new charter by the voters in 1866, the Eleventh Legislature (1866-67) met from August 6 to November 12, during which time, among other actions, it rejected the Fourteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution and refused to consider the Thirteenth. After the Congress turned down the new constitution in 1867, no legislative sessions were held until 1870.”

“The Constitution of 1869,qv drafted by convention and adopted by the voters under congressional Reconstruction, retained many of the legislative provisions from earlier charters but added several that were destined for a very short life, of which the two most significant were annual legislative sessions and six-year terms for senators, one third of whom were to be elected every biennium. Also new were the removal of the disqualification of clerics, the fixed size of both houses (ninety for the House and thirty for the Senate), and, for senators, a lower age requirement to twenty-five. Durational residence qualifications for senators and representatives were restored to their 1845 levels.”

“The Constitution of 1876qv restored the traditional biennial regular sessions and four-year overlapping senatorial terms and continued the ten-year apportionment periods of the 1866 and 1869 charters and the five-year residence requirement for senators from 1866.”

“Similar to the 1845 charter, representatives were to be elected from equally populated districts “as nearly as may be.””

“The Texas statehood constitution, the Constitution of 1845,qv established a governmental structure that with modifications and supplementation has been carried forward in all subsequent charters.”

NOTE: It appears in some places there are double statements such as above. It states the 1845 is a Constitution then follows with stating it and all subsequent Constitutions are actually Charters.

Bless God for the Land of Texas;

By Ed: Brannum

Texian American Sovereign

That is the question and the following is my opinion only.

In my opinion when a United States of America person or Texan person references the topic of “Church  and State” we need to understand what that phrase means. First of all, our forefathers knew the difference and only meant to state that ordained ministers and preachers could not hold a government position because they had accepted a higher calling and, second, people did not want their government forming a government run church. It had nothing to do with the buildings that most consider as Churches.

In reading the definition below you will see that the Church is neither a building or property but the people that makeup the body of Christ congregating as one or more united congregations.

Therefore, if you have a government that promotes the  “Separation of Church from State” you are separating the government from the people. This is the trap into which the people and the once-a-week Christians have fallen.   Therefore, the UNITED STATES is imploding  because the corporate Government has for many years removed God from its foundation.

In order for any free Republic to survive, the people ( the Church) must be able to control  their government. This has always been done by way of constitutions.  However, after all the so-called government entities became corporations, their constitutions were by-passed, slowly taking control and the people’s God given unalienable rights given away.

George Washington said it best; “Government is like a fire, useful in the fireplace, but if it gets out of its place, it will consume everything you own”.

This is what is happening in the Corporate UNITED STATES and its sub-divisions, STATE OF STATES, at this very moment. All the people’s freedoms are slowly being abolished including our freedom to worship.

I declare that the republic of Texas will only survive as long as we Texians stand strong behind our constitution and require all government entity members to only conduct business standing first, under the one and only Almighty God the Creator and second, always under the Texian people’s authority and not allowing dictatorial persons to take control and create a “Separation of Church and State” which equals “Divide and Conquer.”

I find no reference requiring “Separation of Church and State” in any republic of Texas documents. There is a constitutional reference that ministers cannot hold a government office and that is to prevent the Government from forming a Government run non-Christian church as is presently done in countries in the Middle East, Asia and other areas.

Webster’s Revised Unabridged Dictionary 1828

Displaying 1 result(s) from the 1828 edition:


  1. A house consecrated to the worship of God, among Christians; the Lords house. This seems to be the original meaning of the word. The Greek, to call out or call together, denotes an assembly or collection. But, Lord, a term applied by the early Christians to Jesus Christ; and the house in which they worshipped was named from the title. So church goods, bona ecclesiastica; the Lords day, dies dominica.
  2. The collective body of Christians, or of those who profess to believe in Christ, and acknowledge him to be the Savior of mankind. In this sense, the church is sometimes called the Catholic or Universal Church.
  3. A particular number of christens, united under one form of ecclesiastical government, in one creed, and using the same ritual and ceremonies; as the English church; the Gallican church; the Presbyterian church; the Romish church; the Greek church.
  4. The followers of Christ in a particular city or province; as the church of Ephesus, or of Antioch.
  5. The Disciples of Christ assembled for worship in a particular place, as in a private house. Col. 4.
  6. The worshipers of Jehovah or the true God, before the advent of Christ; as the Jewish church.
  7. The body of clergy, or ecclesiastics, in distinction from the laity. Hence, ecclesiastical authority.
  8. An assembly of sacred rulers convened in Christ’s name to execute his laws.

In re-searching the one book of Islam religion it appears to me that it does not allow for freedom of religion as is done in the several Holy Bibles, which gives me freedom of choice to believe or not believe. The republic of Texas is all about truth and freedoms for the people given their inalienable rights inherited by covenant from our Almighty God the one Creator and our organic Declaration of Rights.

Therefore I, as a Texian and officer, cannot comply with the said religion above or any secret society’s religious orders that abolish the Texian people’s rights  causing them to lose freedom of choice.  When hidden agendas are applied by any dictatorial type social compact, such movements by anyone attempting to inject such religions into our republic of Texas government by way of elections or appointments must be prevented unless the people amend the constitution as is.

Those Baltic republics were recognized as restored to their original sovereign status 50 years later, by an international tribunal. Texas is unique […]
