A police officer and a police dog allegedly were assaulted Thursday during a confrontation at the home of a purported “sovereign citizen” in the Columbus suburb of Westerville in central Ohio, 10TV.com is reporting.

Westerville is situated in Franklin and Delaware counties

The station reported that Gabriel Carnelian Pace, the purported “sovereign,” was wanted on traffic charges and allegedly not making child-support payments. He was arrested after the skirmish, as was his wife, April Dawn Pace. April Pace later was released.

“Rek,” a police canine, allegedly suffered an injury below the eye while Gabriel Pace was resisting arrest, the station reported. It was not immediately clear if the officer was injured.

A document that appears online at a website styled DivineProvince.org describes an individual known as “gabriel carnelian of the house of pace,” purportedly the “Living Beneficiary of The GABRIEL CARNELIAN PACE ESTATE.”

An apparent caption on the document is styled a “Complaint of Breach of Trust by Original Writ.” It purports to name as “Respondent” the state of Ohio at 70 N. Union Street, Delaware, Ohio. That’s the address of the Delaware Municipal Court. The document appears to be dated Jan. 4, 2013, and includes the purported signatures of “gabriel carnelian” and “April dawn.”

A second document at the same site is styled “Final Order” and describes “Gabriel Carnelian Pace” as “a commercial vessel, an official carriage registered under the universal post office and authorized to transport the official post and sacred cargo beyond the sea.” This document, also dated Jan. 4, purports to present the official seal of the “Postmaster General” of the “Divine Province.”

  1. Will the idiocy ever cease?

  2. The “Final Order” document is a real hoot. It is signed by a “Jaemes McBride, Postmaster General NA Divine Province”. Google has this person being referred to in the same subject as our old friend David Icke.
    On the David Icke forum:
    Post #2 has a story from 2010 (or there abouts)

    COLUMBUS, Ohio — They call themselves sovereign citizens, U.S. residents who declare themselves above state and federal laws. Many don’t register children’s births, carry driver’s licenses or recognize the court system.

    Another on which mentions favourites of the fruit cake fraternity “The Bilderbergers”, “Nesara” an the “One World Order”:

  3. Tony H: The “Final Order” document is a real hoot. It is signed by a “Jaemes McBride, Postmaster General NA Divine Province”.

    Thanks for this, Tony. Seems “Jaemes McBride” also is a figure in the bizarre RoboVault case in Fort Lauderdale.


    Here is a snippet from a DivineProvince document attributed to McBride:


    “By the extra ordinary commissioned authority and power vested in me, as the trustee, protector and keeper of the most extraordinary Seal of Saint Peter, hereafter affixed by mine hand as the hand of the “One Holy”, authorized by Pope Benedict XVI and the Vatican to act in the capacity as the postmaster general NA, and the one supreme Court of Chancery, in the name of Pope Benedict XVI, the Vatican and the “One Holy”, do hereby command:

    “Respondent(s) shall immediately cease and desist any/all actions against the alleged Defendants in the matters herein until such time as the Charges of Breach of Trust are resolved;”


    It is addressed to the judge in the RoboVault case and is slugged: “Vault Court Order.”

  4. Yes, I am still waiting for these aliens to return and negate all debts. NESARA was something some ASD cult members believed in; just goes to show that crazy people do breed. There are too many examples to list here, but they need to be dealt with and soon.

  5. Tony H: “Nesara”

    See screen shot (redactions by PP Blog) of ASD figure Kenneth Wayne Leaming’s reference to NESARA in a court filing docketed Feb. 6, 2013, four days ago.


    Some “sovereigns” have advanced a theory that the United States passed secret NESARA legislation in the 1990s and that the President signed it into law in anticipation of the visit by a race of reptilian aliens.

    In the earliest days of the ASD case, some of the ASDers made NESARA citations in forum posts. How any of it applied to a Ponzi case was far from clear, but some of the early ASD apologists could twist anything into a conspiracy theory.

    One of the early theories was that the U.S. government took the $80 million seized in the ASD case an invested it in a fund in Europe. It was claimed that the investment returned $1 billion or more and that the profits were used to fund black ops.


  6. Test.


  7. Quick note: A reader tonight reported that the URL for this story was throwing a server error when clicked. I performed some tests and saw the same error in the IE and Chrome browsers, but not in Firefox. The error affected the ability of readers with those browsers to call up most of the stories on the front page of the PP Blog by clicking on the headline links.

    In any event, it looks as though a glitch of some sort occurred at least briefly this evening. I performed some maintenance, and it appears as though the problem is corrected.

    I do not believe the problem was related to this story in any way.


  8. It was them pesky lizard aliens, I tell you!!!

  9. Patrick, how do you know he is a so-called “Sovereign Citizen”? From where did you ascertain that information? Or is it just hearsay?

    For your info, the term “Sovereign Citizen” is an oxymoron (i.e., two conflicting terms). You cannot be sovereign and a citizen at the same time, but you probably didn’t even consider that, did you?

    Only the most ignorant elements of the media have a tendency to use such a term. And the root word in “ignorant” is “ignore,” fyi.

    Get a life!

  10. And the root word in “ignorant” is “ignore,” fyi.

    And yet here you are babbling like a moron.

  11. AFreeMan: And the root word in “ignorant” is “ignore,” fyi.


    ignorant (adj.) Look up ignorant at Dictionary.com
    late 14c., from Old French ignorant (14c.), from Latin ignorantia, from ignorantem (nominative ignorans), present participle of ignorare “not to know, to be unacquainted; mistake, misunderstand; take no notice of, pay no attention to,” from assimilated form of in- “not, opposite of” (see in- (1)) + Old Latin gnarus “aware, acquainted with” (cognates: Classical Latin noscere “to know,” notus “known”), from Proto-Latin suffixed form *gno-ro-, related to gnoscere “to know” (see know).

    Form influenced by Latin ignotus “unknown.” Also see uncouth. Colloquial sense of “ill-mannered” first attested 1886. As a noun meaning “ignorant person” from mid-15c.
