Post-Snowden, post-Wiki-leaks, in an era when a former top US Intelligence advisor recommends the wholesale reversal of the secrecy paradigm in the name of “open-source” intelligence (giving up the trillion-dollar covert industry in favor of basing policy on what everyone can find and see) — in this bewildering time the “spinners” of the world are gradually waking up to the fact that the best spin is the transparent absence of heavy-handed spin (or even light-handed spin), in favor of the disorienting practice of open-hearted candor.
Yet still one wants to tell one’s story — which will inevitably be a kind of “spin,” markedly different from the story being advanced by the opposition. However, in this time of deep cynicism toward both mainstream and “alternative” media, those in the freedom movement have learned to have their spin-detectors set to maximum. Those who have set the dial to “paralyzed nihilism” will, of course, find liars and pretenders everywhere, and true-hearted freedom workers nowhere.
With that preamble done, I am here to tell you the open-heartedly candid story of the creation of The Arbitration Court of International Justice (ACIJ), and its supporting campaign, Justice4Humanity.
Or, as Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid famously put it, “Whoare those guys?”
Recognizing the Facts through the Fog
The core of the story is simple: Certain individuals (fortuitously placed and trained to do something about it) saw that massive human suffering and ever-increasing trampling of essential human rights are largely due to systematic violation of international human rights law by what may loosely be termed “corrupt oligarchic and/or plutocratic forces.” They saw that these forces work their will through governments, covert operations, private groups, and financial institutions; that they manipulate public opinion through illegal propaganda via media conglomerates owned by these same forces — all in the service of an agenda which is blatantly self-serving and hostile to the welfare and freedom of humanity. The plutocratic creation and control of the central banking system are clearly the key to their power — requiring a virtual financial revolution to defeat the implementation of their agenda.
And these individuals recognized that existing international courts were inherently limited (to some extent, by design), and had proven themselves entirely unequal to the task of effectively protecting humanity from these systemic violations.
Some of the codified international laws which go unenforced include the following:

A quick scan of these violations will bring dozens of instances to mind for well-informed persons which exemplify how the corrupt plutocracy runs rough-shod over human rights as a daily business of maintaining control.
Knowing the inescapable truth that only an alliance of nations under the rule of law based on shared human values could possibly accomplish the enormous task of reversing this bleak downward slide, the men and women of Justice4Humanity set about to see what they could contribute to such a movement, knowing that many thousands of others shared the same realizations, and were also struggling for a viable solution.
The Unused Back Door of International Human Rights Law
To begin with, the creation of an international court of justice possessing effective jurisdiction has hitherto only been accomplished by lengthy negotiations between nations — indeed by a process that was “inter-national.” In this case, a major new legal institution was created by a handful of committed human rights advocates, international judges, and lawyers — with the significant factor that the institution derives its legitimacy from decades of existing agreements between nations, relying on provisions of international law that had simply never before been utilized.
The authority and the jurisdiction are therefore “statutory” — triggered by fulfillment of existing international statutes, binding on all U.N. member nations. The law is clear. The licenses are real. The standards of due process required are in place. This part of the story is straightforward.
The human story behind the creation of the court, however, is more complex. Anthropologist Margaret Mead famously advised us to “never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has.” This is certainly true of the ACIJ.
Reality Check – Why Should We Trust These Guys?
While it’s true that the Law is not about personalities, and that the ACIJ is designed to be a permanent institution of social justice for the people, the documented reality is that infiltration, disinformation, and “controlled opposition” are common tools by which meaningful change has long been blocked. Personalities and would-be saviors have been paraded, celebrated, debunked and vilified, leaving the people emotionally exhausted and hopeless. Caution is well-advised.
Some who once had hope may now suffer from semi-permanent jaded cynicism. This project is not addressed to them. To those who believe that justice is possible, that human freedom is possible, and who are willing to accept responsibility to take action (rather than waiting around for the Big Rescue and the Magic Currency Reset) I will simply offer suggestions about how to tell the disinformation agents and agitators from genuine and effective human rights advocates:
You are reading an article which was created by an alliance of genuine human rights advocates working in the Middle East, California, the UK, India, and the US East Coast. Justice4Humanityis made up of passionately committed volunteers who believe the human family’s best hope for peace and freedom is for a global alliance to peacefully enforce international human rights law.
Impunity must end. If impunity ends, many grievous violations will be greatly lessened. Suffering will be greatly lessened. Freedom will be enhanced. Hidden systems of oppression will be disabled. It will not be easy and it will not happen overnight. But we believe it is the only way.
Right. Sounds good. And again, “who are those guys?”
I’ll tell you in a moment. First, one more important caveat:
Ahem, Ahem, Ad Hominem
Courts of law are not about personalities. International institutions designed to last centuries and anchored in binding agreements between nearly all the sovereign nations of the world do not rise or fall based on the virtues or flaws of the comparative handful of men and women who labored to bring them about.
Or, as the humble founders of the Twelve Step Recovery movement put it, “principles before personalities.”
The first point of attack for opponents who wish to distract people from the principles which threaten their wrongdoing is to search out and expose the personal flaws, scandals, or even the mildly unsavory details from the earlier years of the messengers or advocates of those threatening principles. They then proceed to parade these supposedly fatal flaws in sensational fashion, as demonstrated by the now well-known and blatant use of tabloid press by the Rupert Murdoch media conglomerate to selectively punish politicians who dared to oppose its power. This is known as the “logical fallacy” of ad hominem rebuttal — an attack on the person rather than on the principles in question.
If no such flaws or scandals can be found, they can be (and frequently are) cunningly created, as we shall see. It is documented that US and UK counter-intelligence forces devote considerable resources to the defamation and career destruction of political dissidents. The only reasonable option under such circumstances is to preemptively expose the exposers, and tell the unvarnished truth (as Lincoln didn’t actually say), “warts and all.”
Thus, the best offense being a total absence of defense (in the new transparent paradigm), I will now proceed to expose and share the virtues, flaws and supposed scandals of the key movers behind the campaign for the independent ACIJ — but only in the course of telling the essential story with no distracting tangents.
Daring to Name It — A Prominent US Intelligence Expert Expects “Revolution”
In the late summer of 2013, in the course of free-lance journalistic work, I began a series of Skype conversations with an American-born international judge who was working in Egypt. Our conversations focused on the inadequacy of the current international justice system to uphold human rights and national sovereignty.
Credible evidence exists to convince many intelligent observers that a behind the scenes war has been raging in recent years between what is generally termed “the Cabal” and an alliance of benevolent forces in the military and intelligence communities of various nations which had recognized the corrupt nature and appalling agenda of the plutocratic elite. An end-game appears to be underway, in which the stakes are enormous. Exposure of the actual history and nature of the Cabal would mean (in the best case scenario) disgrace, poverty, and prison for some of the world’s most eminent families. Their best option to prevent such defeat remains the one they have resorted to for centuries: create chaos and upheaval, and then impose an ever more restrictive “order” on the chaos they themselves had triggered.
At this writing, the danger of worldwide global financial collapse is being trumpeted even by corrupt mainstream media. The only questions remaining would seem to hinge on timing and control: when does it happen? And who controls the end-game and reset? Does the Cabal emerge triumphant, having imposed draconian control in the wake of global financial chaos? Or will the Alliance acquire the strength to step in at a key moment, asserting the essential human values of cooperation and the rule of law to give mankind a fresh start?
Meanwhile, the aforementioned former US Intelligence Advisor, Robert Steele, has recently observed that classic conditions which are precursors to revolution are now present in the United States and Britain. But what kind of revolution might unfold? If revolution and financial collapse are in fact imminent, will the human family unify in cooperation under international law, or descend into chaos and war?
Even mainstream media outlets such as The Huffington Post are now daring to articulate the need for a peaceful revolution, as when prominent spiritual leader and best-selling author Marianne Williamson wrote in an op-ed in December of 2014:
“Our democracy is dying…It’s time to say it: we need a peaceful revolution in America. In the words of President John F. Kennedy, “Those who make peaceful revolution impossible make violent revolution inevitable.” The American people have simply got to stand up now…”
It has become apparent that only a global alliance operating under international law with the broad consent of the world community can ultimately bring to justice the corrupt plutocratic faction which has come to dominate and control the nominally democratic governments of NATO (and their formidable military forces) to further their agenda.
So long as these corrupt factions retain control via the fiat currency system in the network of central banks, so long as they manipulate a façade of democracy to use the NATO military forces to violate national sovereignty — so long, in other words, as they enjoy impunity from their massive violations of international law — so long will the implementation of their agenda of greed and oppression gain momentum.
Restoring Human Rights and the Rule of Law
But what international court can possibly take on these forces? What venue can be trusted? And even if lawful judgments against human rights violators are made, on what basis can enforcement take place? The use of military might to further the goals of the moneyed elite is among the oldest and bloodiest tragedies known to mankind. The banking families who control the G7 are hardly likely to surrender meekly and peacefully.
What court of law can possibly hope to impact the hard geopolitical realities? I refer you again to the words of Margaret Mead regarding the history of small groups of thoughtful committed citizens who changed the world. This is the story of one such group.
Enter Prince Judge Matthew of Thebes
You may look him up under that name on LinkedIn, where his profile is very detailed as to accomplishments, but limited (as is typical for the professional usage of LinkedIn) as to personal information. Given his fifteen years of service to the Russian Federation as a veteran national security lawyer, his careful online profile which respects the confidentiality of others is understandable — federal law enforcement agents are not in the habit of broadcasting their personal information all over the internet.
But now we are sharing the story of how the first legitimate international court of human rights “for the people” came into being. And since the alliance of human rights advocates who have collaborated to found the ACIJ have asked Prince Matthew to be a spokesman for the Court, he has consented to a greater level of transparency in this article.
(Note: Prince Judge Matthew is not an adjudicating judge of the ACIJ Court itself, but is an independent judge accredited for other governmental and international Courts. As a temporary part-time volunteer supporting ACIJ, he has agreed to be an external spokesman.)
Prince, Archaeologist, Judge, Veteran Federal Agent, Genius-level High-Functioning Autistic, and Grand Master of the Knights Templar
Let’s begin with the title. The status of “Prince” is legitimately used by recognized descendants of royal houses (both ruling and deposed), and by those who have been ennobled by the fons honorum (literally, “source of honor”) powers traditionally vested in recognized kings under customary international law. Prince Matthew’s status was earned for merit, officially bestowed by fons honorum of HRH King David of Mann, of the Independent Kingdom of Mann (a non-ruling royal house legalized and recognized by Queen Elizabeth II), the direct descendant of the original founder and first Royal Patron of the 12th century Knights Templar (as proven by official genealogy records of the Anglican Church). This was granted in 2013, as a necessary part of installing Matthew as the Grand Master of the direct continuation of the original Templar Order, because such Orders traditionally have a “Prince Grand Master” (e.g., the Sovereign Military Order of Malta).
The remarkable story of the restoration of the Sovereign Magistral Order of the Temple of Solomon (as it is properly called) is a tale unto itself, which is given in detail on the Order’s Web Page“Restoration” . (As of 2015, the Templar Order signed a treaty of full independence with the Kingdom of Mann, so it is not dependent on nor influenced by any other sovereign entity.)
As to the designation ‘of Thebes’ which follows his name, this correctly follows chivalric rules of nobility titles, by which the person must have established a knightly commandery or monastery in the place for which they hold the designation. Prince Matthew founded a Templar Commandery in Luxor, which is ancient Thebes, where he regularly pursues archaeology, restoring the full authentic heritage of the Templar Order. I would later learn that the modern Templar Order encourages a revival of the ancient concept of nobility as being a responsibility of greater service to humanity rather than a badge of bloodline superiority. A Templar nobility title turns out to be recognition of service and a call to greater service, all based on egalitarian meritocracy.
NOTE: Those who have read recent historically inaccurate accounts which misidentify the Templars as “an earlier version of the Cabal” may wish to know that the historical record demonstrates that theinfamous 1307 persecution of the Templars was ordered by King Phillip IV of France, a brutal tyrant whom historians identify as the founder of the modern centralized authoritarian state. Then as now, the Templars were Human Rights champions —they were instrumental in the creation of the Magna Carta (the first civil rights and foundation of individual freedom in the West) — and were inter-faith mystics who shared sacred knowledge with their Muslim enemies.
The reality is that the ideals of Chivalry have been making a quiet comeback for the last thirty years (thank you, George Lucas, for the Jedi Knights). Service to humanity, reverence for women, communion with the Divine Source, willingness to defend the oppressed and combat evil, a commitment to a disciplined moral life — these are the ideals of the thousands of “knights and dames” in genuine chivalric movements worldwide.
The ACIJ is not a Templar project. But there are Templar knights and dames who have chosen Human Rights as their mission and are supporting this effort.
Judge whether they are for real by the unequivocally humanitarian tangible work which they contribute. “By their fruits ye shall know them.”
When I was introduced to Prince Matthew in Indonesia in the spring of 2013, he had volunteered legal expertise to a human rights group there out of a desire to further the anti-globalist, pro-national sovereignty cause. I learned that Matthew was an international judge who had worked with the ‘old-school’ mentors of President Vladimir Putin, and assisted the Russian Presidential Administration in cleaning up the Russian mafia in the years following the resignation of Boris Yeltsin.
My contact then mentioned in passing, “Oh yeah, he’s also the Grand Master of the Knights Templar.”
I did not follow up that intriguing item for many months. In the course of my research, I had heard rumors that some lineal remnant of the Templars had survived and was active in the alliance against the Western banking elite. I had learned to disregard rumors. We needed expert help on international law.
This led to several lengthy Skype conversations between me and Prince Matthew, exploring these issues. We quickly discovered a remarkable affinity on multiple fronts, from the political to the esoteric, and became collaborators in several projects. We decided to do an article on the viability of a new kind of international human rights court, exposing the flaws of the current global courts, and proposing an alternative.
Yes, reader, the candor thing again — he is now a close friend. I have collaborated with Prince Matthew since then on multiple projects related to human rights advocacy and interfaith harmony.
Over the course of many months, the following facts emerged about this remarkable man:
It is this last fact which, in part, prompts this article. Prince Matthew would really much rather remain behind the scenes, and let the institution he helped to bring into being represent itself by its own authority and impact. A man does not generally choose to live alone on the edge of the desert engaged in high-level research out of a desire to be a famous freedom-fighter (nor do veteran federal agents usually splash their personal histories all over Facebook).......
And while his high-functioning Asperger’s autism is virtually undetectable in ordinary conversation (as he enjoys a high degree of normal “affect,” with a razor wit and a gleeful laugh), he has warned this writer not to expect finesse in people skills from him, much less an ability to “schmooze” in society. “On one level, Michael, I’m just a Rainman who’s learned to put on a show…”
This is a very private man.
By sheer force of will, he has overcome extraordinary challenges to carve out a unique niche, freely contributing accomplishments which would proudly fill out the resumes of a dozen lesser men. As a Templar Knight he has done this quietly, in keeping with the Order’s ancient motto, Non nobis, Domine, sed Nomine tuo da gloriam (not unto us, O Lord, but to Thy Name be the glory).
But because searchable traces remain on the internet of the documented criminal defamation efforts led by a US Army counter-intelligence officer, we must set the record straight, so that those who have cause to fear the impact of an effective international court of human rights will not be able use the deception of ad hominemattack, which is the last refuge of the morally corrupt and intellectually destitute.
When it comes to systematic violation of human rights, Prince Judge Matthew of Thebes can speak from personal experience.
From New York to Moscow to Thebes: the Making of a Dissident American Prince
My relationship to Matthew began with him being in the position of a mentor. My job was to absorb and distill the information he shared, and produce useful, anti-globalist articles on human rights law to be disseminated on the web. I would learn his life story only gradually. One feature of autistic brain-function is the ability to follow a logical thread down an endless trail of consequences and potentialities with an exhaustive focus which leaves ordinary brains in the dust. While this can result in a dizzying amount of information being imparted in a single conversation, it seldom leaves room for ordinary small talk or personal tangents. Perceiving his preference for privacy, I learned to keep to the subject at hand.
As an inveterate storyteller and tangent-enthusiast
