Lawful: That which is created by the People under Common Law, to uphold “right and wrong” and “justice”, and containing the precepts of Common Law: To live honourably, to hurt nobody, to render to everyone his/her due. Case Law. Trial by Jury. De jure. The Law of the Land.
Legal: That which is created by government Legislation for the purpose of governing Legal Persons of every artificial kind. The rules and regulations of Statutory Acts, forming contracts by consent. Having the “colour of law”. Commercial. De facto. The Law of the Sea.
The following explanatory is by Judge Anna Von Reitz:
The Law of the Land in the Western World is based on the Mosaic Law of the Bible, which is common to Judaism, Christianity, and Islam. The Ten Commandments are the basis of the Law of the Land, which in this country is American Common Law. The Constitution is also formed under Common Law and is called the “Law of the Land” by the Federal Government to distinguish it as the “law” that they must obey when dealing with us, the people of the United States, and our unincorporated states on the land known as the States of America.
Justices, popularly called “judges” in our Common Law Courts are NOT members of any Bar Association, do not hold any titles of nobility, and serve as either Magistrates (as when a Justice of the Peace performs a marriage) or Members of the Court (as when they pronounce the sentence required by the Trial Jury).
Common Law Justices aka “Judges” do not instruct juries in the sense of telling them what to do or in the sense of interpreting the Law — that is the job of the juries — justices serve as a resource if juries have questions about court procedures and that sort of thing, but they do not interfere with or direct or seek to influence the juries in their determinations. Common Law Justices take their instructions from juries, both Grand Juries and Trial Juries.
The Law of the Sea is international in nature and is based on the Law Merchant derived from the Code of Hammurabi (Maritime “Commercial” Law) and the Law of the Sea (Admiralty) which derived from the Satanic Law of Sumeria and the Phoenicians — the source of the word “phony”. This is the “legal” system of the sea jurisdiction as opposed to the “lawful” system of the land. As you might expect, the Law of the Sea is based on deceit, as it derives from the worship of the Father of All Lies.
The judges in these courts are either business administrators or acting as priests of the Crown Temple. They are required to be Bar Association attorneys by the rules of their Jural Societies called Bar Associations and have taken Oaths of Nullification, known as the Kol Nidre, which according to the underlying religion of the Sea allows them to void any agreement they make, break their word with impunity and act deceitfully (commit fraud) without consequence. These characters “simulate” judicial proceedings so as to — in their own words in the Federal Code of Civil Procedure — give an “appearance” of justice. These judges use juries as props in a play, and basically bully and “direct” juries to deliver whatever outcome the judge wants.
Law of the Land = Our Father, Law of the Sea = Lucifer.
There is also the Law of the Air, which is global in jurisdiction, and ecumenical. It has only three laws: keep the peace, do no harm, treat others as you would like to be treated yourself. If you obey these Laws of the Air, you automatically fulfill all other laws and stand above any other form of law.
