Jim’s Daily Rant. Emergency - Part I. How Far Can You Go To Protect Yourself?

There are several types or areas of law: Common, Admiralty, Administrative, Criminal, Tort, etc. You don’t have to understand any of those terms except one: Common Law. That is the most basic level of all laws, the root of the bush.

It derives its name from the Common use or practice of understanding the law of the land. It comes from hundreds of years of court rulings explaining what our interpretation of a law is so we can predict future outcomes in that area.

Under Maritime, Administrative or Criminal law, a sign might say “Walk, Don’t Run”. Therefore if we run we have to pull out the wallet in the process. It’s pretty straight forward. But deeper down, it still is hinged on it’s root, Common law. So let’s look at a couple of Emergency cases under Common Law, shall we?

My favorite case is Cordas Taxi.


I am going to give you the facts the way the 1945 era Judge wrote them. A gentleman suddenly appeared in the back seat of a taxi with a group of men chasing behind the fare shouting “He just robbed our business, stop him!” The fare then pointed a “most persuasive pistol” at the driver’s head and demanded “Drive!”. After a block of the parade commotion, the Driver opened the door and exited, in search of a new cab with a less colorful fare. The cab jumped a curb striking a woman pushing a baby carriage, who seeks damages from the driver, personally.

Issue: How should a Reasonable Man act in an Emergency?

This is what I called the Emergency Reasonable Man Rule. In an emergency, one is not required to follow the “Reasonable Man rule”, because in an emergency, there is never a “reasonable man” around. We each determine the emergency and dangers differently so we cannot be held to a standard.

Ruling: The driver was not liable for damages.


The second case is the Sailboat Case?


A pleasure sail-boater was cruising the lake. An unforecasted storm suddenly sprang up without much visual warning. Fearing for himself and boat, he moored at the nearest wharf, with signage “Private Property, No Trespassing.”

Issue: Did the Sailor create or contribute to the emergency himself?

Could he have been more observant, started seeking shelter ten minutes earlier ending at another shelter, or strengthened his boat better for such a storm?


The Sailor did not trespass. His boat was not in disrepair; he did not create the crisis but rather reacted to it


The Bottom Line Folks:


The bottom line in this global collapse we are in is this. We did not create it. We cannot escape from it. But our own governments give us the weather report of “Clear weather ahead.”

Therefore, the Corporate government, if it survives, cannot come back and say “You should have known better that the VAX was poison.”

This leaves the field wide open to protect your family, based on your interpretation of the probable dangers ahead. This is especially true if we believe they are trying to kill us.

Possibilities of our Reaction & Preparation can be to violate current government laws, such as “No Running.” or "your company payroll taxes must be deposited by Wednesday." You now have the duty to violate these rules, to your benefit, in order to protect yourself.
