Over the years, I have observed
"marketeers" (pronounced like "mouseketeers" of Mickey Mouse fame)
and several paralegals make lots of wild and baseless claims about
lawyers: "they take a secret oath" and "they have allegiance to
the English monarchy" or "they are part of the BAR, the British
Accreditation Registry". Once they make these comments, they then
start hawking their wares: "Here, buy this corporate sole and it
will free you," or "let me sell you this ticket to exit the
'system' -- all you have to do is 'recapture' your straw man!!!" I
have detected that the market price for a "corp sole" is usually 4
grand. But of course if that is too "rich for your blood", there
are cheaper products that get rid of your 14th Amendment
I address the above and other issues elsewhere.
Here, I state as follows:
1. To become a lawyer, I did not and neither did any other lawyer
take any secret oath. Lawyers take an oath to support and defend
state constitutions and that of the United States. When I was
sworn, I did it on the front steps of the Alabama Supreme Court,
in front of God, my parents and everybody else.
2. To become a lawyer, I was not required to have allegiance to
anything British, whether the King, the Queen, or the alleged BAR,
the British Accreditation Registry. In fact, I have no allegiance
to anything that is not American and this is the condition of
perhaps 99.99% of American lawyers. The only exceptions are those
lawyers who for some reason might also be a member of some British
bar association, but I have never met such a lawyer.
3. An organization named British Accreditation Registry does not
exist, and such contention is nothing but the fabrication of the
above mentioned marketeers. I have challenged the proponents of
this wild idea to offer any proof of the existence of this
allegedly sinister organization and they have offered none. The
simple fact of the matter is that those asserting this BAR
contention are unmitigated liars. They have no reservation about
making fraudulent statements, so be very careful when you buy any
of their "legal products."
I have asked several lawyers and a law student
to provide to me their opinion about the flaky BAR argument and
their comments appear below.

Not only did I take no oath to any British
Accreditation Registry, I will meet anyone who says otherwise in
the streets of downtown Stuart and fight over it!
Here is the oath

Concerning your excellent refutation of the British Accreditation
Registry fantasy, and your request for other lawyers to assist you
in refuting the "BAR" argument, I lend my support.
I don't know what I can add to your meticulous refutation of the
Experientially, however, I was once discharged by a client who
fell prey to promoters of the BAR lie. Attorney-client
privilege and confidentiality prohibit me from saying much more
than the advice given to my client by these hucksters could be
published under the title “What to do and when to do it if you
want to go to jail and serve the greatest possible term of
incarceration, while at the same time waiving all possible grounds
for appeal.” As an attorney, I could not have developed a more
comprehensive and effective course of conduct for my client to
follow if he had hired me to maximize the certainty, length, and
severity of his incarceration and also to guarantee any appeal
filed would be denied. Their advice didn’t miss a thing in
accomplishing these ends.
I am a member of the California Bar and took the oath
by California law
. I did not take any secret oath. I am not
a member of the British Accreditation Registry, which is the
figment of somebody's imagination.
I applaud your time and effort spent exposing the factual and
legal lunacy of the BAR and other arguments on your website.

When I became an attorney, I took the oath
by California law
. I did not take any secret oath, and I
certainly did not become a member of the British Accreditation
Registry. Only recently have I heard anything about this
non-existent entity named British Accreditation Registry, which is
the fabrication of some fertile minds.
