  1. Hello, the strawman is a name given by people to the trust when they don’t fully understand Trust Law. It is a Trust, this story is correct in that there are two trusts. One Christian the other Satanic. or in commercial terms one credit and one debit. The trick is the surname. This is a bastardisation of the bible from the story of Adam and Eve. The surname is the Serpent name or surety Name. If you decide to volunteer to hold this Name you are agreeing to be the trustee of the debt account produced by the Corporate Authority, in this case NEW SOUTH WALES POLICE SERVICE Australian business number 43 408 613 180.The Police in our state actually use four business names these are NSW POLICE FORCE, NSW POLICE SERVICE,NSW POLICE DEPARTMENT and NSW POLICE. They never actually use these names on court document to avoid liability in court. They opt for police which is neither registered or a proper noun. This brings me to my point. Your Birth certificate has upon it two entities. You and differentiate these by the two languages and two dates of birth. First let me introduce the Glossa. A Glossa is a foreign word requiring translation. So you think you can read English? well if you will notice on your Birth Certificate the all capitals Surname. This is not how the New Oxford Manual of Style (how to write English) defines a Name which is a Proper Noun. A Proper Noun is written in English with one capital letter at the start and the rest in lower case. So what is all capitals. As far as our research has shown it is American Sign Language. This is the written component of Sign Language. To use a glossa (all capitals) is unlawful in Australia under section 136.1 of the criminal Code Act 1995 (Commonwealth). So how do they do it. Well they rely on the fact that it looks like English and the general public can’t actually read. A Maxim is “He who enters the court corrects the false Name.” So unless you go in kicking and screaming you agree, you also agree by holding a Drivers license with a Glossa Surname upon it.

    • Firstly, seven traffic offences and the bystanders act as if this person is innocent, come on people.

      In response to Rohan’s rant, a “glossa” isn’t a foreign word needing translation, nor is it ALL CAPITALS which brings me to the criminal code that you probably should have read before claiming it’s unlawful to use ALL CAPITALS (did I just break the law?) because it’s not.

      We have rules and regulation on our roads simply because some people (like the man in the video) won’t take responsibility for their own actions, they feel the right to do what they please, when and how without regard for others.
      If people respected others and took more responsibility we wouldn’t need strict rules, if we want to act like children then we’ll be treated like children.

      We’re all in this together, riding along on the same rock, let’s start acting like it.

  2. Andrew, you are right on some points, probably wrong on others. Yes, road safety is important for everyone concerned. Rohan’s alleged rant (about ALL CAPS) is presently being tested in the Australian court system and might have an outcome by the end of March 2016. I am as interested as anyone else on the final say in the upper case ‘glossa’ theory.

  3. Then be honest and admit that your wild theories have been tested repeatedly, and not once successful in a court. Not once, nada, zero, never. Stop lying to people and leading them to certain failure.
