Kevin Annett is the Energizer bunny of online con-artists. This site has helped expose Annett’s fake discovery of a mass grave at an Indian residential school, his abuse of residential school survivors, how he forged the signature of a dead woman, how he lied about filing a case in Canadian federal court, and dozens of his other foibles. Yet, somehow, Annett has still been able to recruit new followers (albeit, not very bright ones).
If you’re ever looking for an example of how the Internet is full of gullible idiots- Kevin is your man. He’s moved on from abusing indigenous people, and has now ‘officially’ dissolved the Canadian state; indicted the Pope, Prime Minister, and a couple of RCMP officers; and single-handedly issued warrants for their arrest! And, as his latest video shows us (see above picture) he broadcasts his delusions of grandeur directly to us- while sitting on the throne of someone’s toilet!
But let’s get more serious for a moment, and ask an important question- is Annett’s “International Common Law Court” in Brussels real? If you’ve been following Annett’s antics for long now, the answer will surely amuse…
Understanding Annett’s “Common Law” Court:
The basis of Annett’s latest fraud is an ‘organization’ he calls the International Tribunal For Crimes Against Church and State (ITCCS). It’s a grandly named group (of one) whose primary interface with the world is a poorly configured WordPress blog that uses a picture of a church surrounded by police crime scene tape. Check out the site, if your IQ is over 75, it won’t take you long to realize it’s a bad joke.
According to Annett, the ITCCS have setup an “International Common Law Court of Justice” in Brussels, Belgium. The image above is a copy of one of the court’s declarations- in this case, Annett is giving the order to his followers that it’s their duties to invade churches, arrest clergy, and confiscate their assets. A couple of people have tried this already- one nearly got arrested, the other was placed in a mental hospital for observation.
Kids, don’t try this at home.
The key to understanding the fraudulence of Annett’s court comes by deconstructing his use of the phrase “common law”- it’s a real laugh riot, and something already explained on this site back in August, 2012:
“There are two primary types of law- Common Law & Statute Law. Common law refers to the laws that are more or less “that’s the way it has always been done.” Common law relies upon the body of history and prior cases to establish what the rules are, one of the reasons lawyers study past cases so much. Statute law refers to the laws that have been passed by the legislature and have been written down and ‘codified’ for use.
Annett says he is conducting a criminal case, Criminal Law is codified into Statute Law, and is not related to Common Law. So, Annett says his tribunals are not”mock trials” but they are, but virtue of the fact that tribunals are (in Canada) creatures of statute only. So, basically, what Annett is saying here, is circular nonsense.”
Okay, so it’s clear now that Annett doesn’t have a clue about what he’s talking about- but wait, there’s more!
The concept of common law is derived from English Law, a system that was spread far and wide back in the days of the British Empire; most Commonwealth countries still use common law today. If you’re the observant type, you’ve probably already noticed the problem here. Annett’s claims his court is based in Belgium- a country that’s never been part of the Commonwealth, nor a subject of the British monarchy. Belgium’s legal system is based on Napoleonic Code, they don’t use common law. So, basically, Annett’s claim of creating a common law court in Belgium is a poorly executed farce.
But, if your IQ is over 75, you’ve already figured that out by now- all it takes is one look at Annett broadcasting videos sitting on his throne…
