Brent Winters

Attorney & Counselor at Law

Brent Allan Winters grew up on a farm north of Moonshine, Illinois; served as diver, U.S. Navy Mobile Diving Unit 1 and aboard carrier USS Coral Sea; worked as a geologist and mine operator; and ran for U.S. Congress. Brent has briefed cases in the United States Supreme Court, argued before the jury and appellate courts (both State and Federal), has represented clients in foreign countries, and clerked for a state appellate court judge. Our common-law way of life and thought, says Brent, is not only the lifeblood and backbone of our U.S. Declaration of '76 and Constitution, but is also the object of zeal that delivered our country to nationhood and remains the fellowship that defines Americans to the world.

The purpose of this site is to advance the first principles of the only remedy for the lawlessness now seen, namely, the true law, found in two volumes: our common law (a slice of the unwritten laws of nature) and our Bible (the written laws of Nature's God). The observations and works on this site are those of Brent Allan Winters.

Inn Church maintains this website.

The only remedy for lawlessness is true law.

Hi Roger,

Haven't talked in a while and I wanted to say hi and reiterate how much I get from your program. The cast of characters you have accumulated has come a long way. Mike Gaddy is a great addition to the program, I really enjoy learning real history. Brent Winters is just something special. The way that man explains things and brings his stories in to explain the meanings is something I wish I had found long ago. Please keep up what you are doing, as it is much appreciated.

Mr. Winters,

I found you while listening to Roger Sayles Radio Ranch program. It's been 2 yr's or more, and I always look forward to Friday Tasmanian word discussions. Your clear and unwavering faith and understanding of scripture and law, and your style (if i may) are invaluable to a wealth of knowledge not heard by the masses! In closing, ...losing your campaign for Congress was the best thing to happen for a lot of souls standing in the wilderness.

—Sincerely, T.E. from Alaska

Mr. Winters,

I listen to you all the time on the Radio Ranch with Roger. I don't know if I have ever listened to any one with more knowledge on the Bible and the way it should be interpreted as you. Or a man with more knowledge of True Law. You are extremely well spoken and a joy to listen to. 

—Kevin, location undisclosed


I was listening to Brent Winters solo shows. The discourse between the two of you brings out a passion in him that I don't get when he is solo. Your discussions always enlighten . . . It's like you wind up the rubber band and he takes off (and you get a rest). He's the dynamite—your the fuse. Light him up and Sssheeeewwwww, off he goes. The two of you blend so well and the vast amount of knowledge between you is extraordinary. Please do consider membership for archives. I would gladly pay for it.

A Common Lawyer Comments 

—Brent Allan Winters—

Our Constitution arranges the bones forming our government in the language of the common law. Without the common law, our Constitution sleeps—a bone-dry and dispirited skeleton of lifeless words. Keep our common law and it will keep your freedoms. —Brent Allan Winters

Common law is not a list of laws but a way of life and mind, recognizing that man at his best is still only man—at best. Accordingly, it seeks not the scholastic's utopian fantasy through a code of legal precision but rather the doable-ness of fair play by following due process to uncover the driving reality of facts. —Brent Allan Winters

Common law protects relationships. Our common law is understood according to relationships—creditor-debtor, promisor-promisee, trustor-trustee, bailor-bailee, vendor-vendee, husband-wife & etc. Accordingly in common-law trials, the threshold question must be to identify the relationship between the parties: landowner-trespasser, landowner-invitee, leaseholder-landlord, dual agency (partnership) or single agency, bailor-bailee, trustee-beneficiary & etc. By contrast, civil law organizes its codes according to subject—contract law, tort law, property law, family law & etc.

Our common law (law of the land) seeks foremost to protect relationships through due process, also called fair play.

By contrast, the civil law (law of the city) seeks foremost to justify the will of the state, set forth in commands called legislation (statutes) and regulation. —Brent Allan Winters

That the quest for facts is the driving force of our common law distinguishing it from the rest of the world's city (civil) law cannot be over-stressed.

Once this question of fact (relationship) is discerned, the law to be applied is clear and all the Jury need to decide are the remaining facts of the case: What happened? How'd it happen? Why'd it happen? When'd it happen? Where'd it happen? Who done it? Who's at fault? —Brent Allan Winters.

By contrast, the will of the state is the driving force of the civil law. In civil-law countries—these countries now covering almost the entire globe—the controlling question is, what does the state by its code command? In a common-law country such as ours, the troublesome problem confronting the court and jury, says Stryker, is not so much what the law is, as what happened. Did he steal? Did he assault? Did he commit arson? Did he kill, and under what circumstances? —Brent Allan Winters

Because our Constitution neither requires, nor commands, anything of the people of the United States but only of public employees, office-holders, and other dependents go government, it is neither legislation nor statutes but an excellent expression—in a long tradition of expressions—of the ancient principles of common-law government. —Brent Allan Winters

MAGNA CARTA—800th Anniversary

—Brent Allan Winters—

Eight hundred years ago this year, the year 1215, Stephen Langton wrote Magna Carta in a moment's notice of war, King John signed it at the points of swords, and the Roman pope outlawed both Magna Carta and its drafter Steven Langton—because it is contrary to the civil-canon law of Rome.

Stephen Langton, King John, and that Roman pope are now gone. Magna Carta, however, lives on.

Magna Carta was rendered up from the sharpest adversity, a foundation of our common-law way of life. And since its signing, Magna Carta—as now also our United States Constitution—has been hacked, amended, cussed, misconstrued, and even chucked into the dustbin of history. Powerful men have read its eulogy, put it into a coffin, dug its grave, and formed its funeral procession. But somehow the intended corpse has refused to stay put, and understandably so, because its principles are timeless.

Magna Carta in a Nutshell

Magna Carta begins—and ends—by declaring the Church in England free from all other powers, both foreign (Rome's pope) and domestic (England's Crown). It next follows with detailed protection of widows and orphans—a constant theme of the Bible. Then it limits the power of the banker's cabals of usury and bars the national government (the English Crown) from direct, personal tax-collection power over individuals; forbidding tax collectors, for instance, from taking a man's draught animals and tools necessary for him to feed his family or to satisfy a claimed tax obligation—also the Bible's first principle. It then follows with guarantees of due process (timely notice, a meaningful opportunity to be heard, and consent) before being taxed and trial by a jury of one's peers (neighbors).

And above all, Magna Carta affirms the required consent of the common-law jury of one's peers before the power of government may be used to take a man's life, liberty, or property—thus echoing the jury principle of both the Older and the Newer Testaments. Indeed, our own United States Constitution's limits for government are strikingly alike to Magna Carta's—not only in general principles but also in particulars.

Reasons for Magna Carta = Reasons for U.S. Constitution

The reasons Englishmen insisted upon Magna Carta are even more curious for their strong likeness to the reasons Americans now insist upon the courses of our common law: oppression of Islamic law, enslavement to usurious debt, and plundering of our valuable land by foreign powers.

Consider these facts:

First, King John, forced signer of Magna Carta, had promised the Islamic Sultan of Morocco that he would decree all England Islamic if the Sultan would loan him all the money he needed to fight the landholders of England, thus allowing Islamic law to replace England's common

Second, King John had borrowed money from phariseeism's cabalistic moneylenders of England at outlandish interest rates of between 43 1/3 and 86 2/3 percent, per year, thus enslaving all England's landholders and descendants in never-ending debt—from the richest old Thane in the county to the lowest serf chained to the field.

Third, King John granted all of England's land to Rome's pope as the pope's personal fief, thus allowing the pope to collect the lion's share of taxes on all the produce of England's land.

Simply put, King John had sold his own countrymen—high-born and low—down river into the three-fold tyranny of that ancient, yet ever-threatening, antagonist of freedom called Babylonianism:

(1) Babylon's law of the city (in this case, Islamic law), instead of God's law of the land (called our common law);

(2) Enslavement of the country by bondage to usurers (called phariseeistic moneylenders, bankers), instead of freedom from debt;

(3) Income taxation by demand of a foreign power (in this case the Vatican), instead of taxation by consent of the country.

Bottom line: King John had sold his own country into slavery of Islam's lawlessness, bankers' usury, and popery's  taxation—the same three evils Americans now face.

Maga Carta Passes the Reliability Test

Without question, Magna Carta is a solid stepping stone—well-placed in a long line of stepping stones—of that common law which our Declaration of '76 calls the law of Nature unwritten in creation, meant to be observed and recognized, but always to be tested against that second grand volume of God's revelation of His will, which our Declaration of '76 calls the laws of Nature's God written in our Bible. As such, Magna Carta did that which our own Constitution of the United States also did: it sought not to establish anything new, but rather, to reach back, capture, re-established, and strengthened that which is old, namely, the laws of nature called the common law of the land. And this common law, says U.S. Supreme Court Justice James Wilson, is cleaner and more sensitive to individual rights of liberty, respecting life and property, than is the law of the city.

John Wycliffe accords, calling the law of the city "evil menes law," such as the civil law of Islam, of Rome, and of usurers. But these laws of Nature, observable in the nature of things, in life, and in relationships are—as our common law and Declaration of '76 both put it—consonant with the laws of
Nature's God written in our Bible. And this consonance stands to reason: Magna Carta's drafter Stephen Langton was not only the foremost Old-Testament commentator of his day but also provider of our Bible's present chapter divisions.

Thus does Magna Carta reflect our Bible's leading principles. Accordingly, it is said that Magna Carta not only remains in force but always will remain in force because it recognizes and affirms timeless principles, which, even though unwritten, are, nevertheless seeable—indeed obvious—in the nature of things; and further, are consonant with the laws of nature's God called the Bible.

The Big Paper Called Magna Carta Demands Our Response

Though King John signed Magna Carta in the year 1215, followed by Wycliffe having planted the seeds of how to enjoy its liberty, Magna Carta stayed asleep and unused until about the year 1529. 

Parliament, had not met for seven years due to the despotic rule of the butcher's son of Ipswitch—the Roman papist called cardinal Wolsey. Then on 3 November of 1529, Henry VIII. called Parliament together. The times were ripe. This meeting released God's pent-up gumption-breath from Englishmen into the theretofore dead letter and dry bones of Magna Carta, quickening its words, raising from ground the law of the land. From that time forward, Magna Carta had behind it driving force—volts for its amps—; the United States of America is one of its chief results.   

To be sure, Magna Carta's first principles are best understood in light of the threats Englishmen faced at that time of its drafting. But the same three threats of those times that drove Stephen Langton to draft Magna Carta, again rear their ugly heads: false law of Islam, enslavement to banker's usurious debt, and—to force payment the interest on that unlawful debt—, taxation of income. But further, the remedy to all such lawlessness remains, now as then, true law.

Thus must each American seek in his family, locally, and at every point, first, to purge the false law of Islam with our Declaration of '76's two-volume set of laws, the laws of nature learned from creation and the laws of nature's God learned from our Bible; second, to purge the banker's cabalistic monopoly of usury with the revival of real money, gold and silver coin; and third, to purge unlawful taxation with State and national legislation overturning the income tax.
