AMERICA, IT'S YOUR WAKE-UP CALL!
ALL RIGHT, I LIED. I told you all in my announcement of this event that I was going to present you with 850 pieces of concrete evidence that the average American has been wearing the rube suit at the carnival for decades of fleecing at the hands of corrupt public officials. But I'm not going to do that.
Instead, I'm going to present 853 pieces of concrete evidence, 'cause since I announced this event last week, a few more have arrived!
On June 13, 2012 I was released from two years in captivity after a conviction on charges of allegedly not believing that earnings like mine weren't "wages" and subject to the tax. That conviction was engineered in order to make YOU question the veracity of what I teach about the tax.
However, two days prior to my release the same people that told my jury that everybody knows that all earnings are subject to the tax, and that I couldn't possibly believe anything to the contrary (and who didn't dare let the jury see the actual definitions of the "wages" I said I hadn't received), agreed for the many thousandth time with exactly what I teach about the tax. As has gone on without interruption for the ten years since I first explained the tax, the United States Treasury agreed with a CtC-educated claimant and returned every penny withheld from him during 2011-- the third such victory for the rule of law won by Mark Lovely over the last few years:
The feds are still dunning Mark for an alleged balance outstanding from his pre-CtC-educated-filing days. But they can't help but acknowledge his educated filings, like this one in which it is agreed that all $7,209.00 withheld from his earnings during 2011 amounted to an "overpayment" because his earnings don't qualify as the "wages" against which such withholding can be properly carried out, and in regard to which a tax would actually be owed.
Acknowledgements like this latest one for Mark went on continuously while I sat in durance vile, lending an especially rank edge to the stink of corruption attending my imprisonment. I love that those victories happened, of course, and congratulate all who won them. But I can't help but note the special irony of these particular government admissions...
Anyway, Mark just remembered last week that he hadn't sent me this victory to post, so now I'm able to share it with you and use it to make the point of this special post (which I'll get to in a minute). Well done, Mark!
Three weeks ago, Joseph Davis won his first victory as an American fully-educated about the truth of the tax:
You can see the filing that produced this victory here, and determine that it is fully in accordance with what is taught in CtC about the nature and application of the tax. You are also encouraged to take note of the fact that like Mark's victory above, Joseph's is one obviously involving very pointed IRS awareness and attention (but more on that in a minute...). Well done, Joseph!
Just eight days ago, Bill Harding won his eighth victory for the rule of law (six others of which are posted on the losthorizons.com victory pages, with one not yet posted). This one is from Michigan for 2012:
Like those of Mark and Joseph above, and all the tens of thousands of other victories won over the last ten years, Bill's latest victory was secured by his using Treasury Department-published forms just as they are meant to be used, on which Bill declares that while he did indeed earn and receive money during the year, it wasn't connected with the specialized kind of activities to which the income tax applies.
Now let me get to the point:
I've got to interrupt this crossover to "the point" with more victories for the rule of law (and our 854th and 855th piece of this kind of posted evidence of the liberating truth about the tax). CtC-educated American grown-up Joseph Harrison just shared his first and second such victories.
Regarding the first of these victories, Joseph had neglected to rebut a 1099-C alleging a taxable gain to him as a result of forgiveness of a debt by a federal institution in the course of its "trade or business". The IRS told him a tax was therefore due and owing (along with other adverse consequences):
Joseph responded with these, declaring that the debt that was forgiven had nothing to do with any "trade or business". The IRS agreed, without a fuss:
During the same period that the docs in this little 2011 kerfuffle were going back and forth, Joseph was invoking the law and reclaiming what had been errantly withheld from his earnings as "federal income, Social Security and Medicare taxes" under the presumption that those earnings were a consequence of Joseph's conduct of taxable activities. Joseph corrected the mis-impression with forms specified by the US Treasury for this purpose-- forms 1040 and 4852 (see Joseph's here)-- and promptly received IRS agreement with his conclusions:
A Treasury check also arrived:
Annoyingly, although Joseph is doubtless pleased to have gotten some of his property returned so far, this check is only for all of what was withheld as nominal "federal income tax". Not yet returned is what was withheld from him as Social Security and Medicare taxes. See Joseph's filing to see what is missing.
Social Security and Medicare taxes ("income" taxes like any others, despite having their own special names and being technically "surtaxes") only arise under the law in concert with the receipt of "wages". Both Joseph and the IRS agree that none of those were received, so the government's failure to return the amounts withheld as such is inexplicable and indefensible, (and as a practical matter, means that Joseph will be put to some very undeserved trouble seeing to it that he is made whole).
So, while nonetheless a nice victory so far, Joseph's 2012 claim remains a victory-in-progress. It is, however, one in which the major elements were accomplished just last week, and that nicely lets me return to "the point":
IT'S BEEN TEN YEARS, FOR PETE'S SAKE!! WAKE UP AND SMELL THESE WONDERFUL ROSES!!
Ten years ago, when I secured the first complete refund of everything "income-tax"-related, precisely as and in the manner CtC said I would, I was disappointed but not surprised to hear from many people who were willing to look at that victory but who wouldn't go to the trouble to read the book, "This has to be a glitch! Let's see what's going on with this a few years from now!"
Ten years now...
So here's how it is: Only a drooling moron or a corrupt scoundrel would argue now that CtC is not correct and complete. There's no legitimate question on this point.
It's true that after (or sometimes before) doing what the law requires some corrupt officials in some tax agencies still try now and then to browbeat some unfortunate educated filers into reversing themselves, or try to exploit convoluted legalisms and a distracted and ill-educated judiciary to punish educated claimants with bogus penalties which are obviously invalid. BUT EVEN THESE SPORADIC, PETULANT ASSAULTS ARE JUST EFFORTS TO DISCOURAGE MORE CLAIMS THE AGENCIES CANNOT LAWFULLY DISPUTE OR REFUSE!
Wake up the rational part of your brain! If the tax agencies or governments for which they work could dispute or refuse these claims, NONE OF THEM WOULD EVER BE HONORED. For ten years now there's been what amounts to a CtC division at the IRS desperately trying to come up with ways to suppress this knowledge and suppress you from spreading it and teaching it. And for ten years now, CtC-educated claimants have been securing their victories in invoking and upholding the law.
Think about this: Even I, for all the intense attention I've suffered from the enemies of the truth all these years, have still never been assessed a tax contrary to the testimony on any of my original CtC-educated filings. The last certificates of assessment I have to show you are from a few years ago, but nonetheless post-date years of adverse IRS and government attention, and nothing has changed since.
So wake up... and get up. Those of you who know the truth and are still sitting on your hands, and those who have gone quiet, are doing the devil's work. It is the liars' hope that you will do just that-- sit on your hands or go quiet. THAT WAY THEY GET WHAT THEY WANT-- continued success in misapplying the tax, while you fall deeper under the paralyzing spell of fear and doubt and distraction and doubletalk.
Those of you who DON'T already know the truth and are being invited to wake up will never get there, and will rot in the Matrix for the rest of your lives-- and condemn your kids to the same sordid, shameful fate-- if you don't take in what I am telling you here like a deep mug of strong coffee. Here's your wake-up call, people. Heed it and get yourselves free.
One committed CtC Warrior sent me these wise words just a few days ago, as though he knew I was preparing this commentary and admonition. I'll let them close this commentary, because they are simply perfect. Drink these words in and let them replace the paralyzing Kool-Aid of fears and fantasies.
We CAN have the blessings of liberty and the rule of law in our time, if each one of us acknowledges the truth about the tax, and realizes that:
“The wishbone will never replace the backbone.
Until one is committed, there is hesitancy, the chance to draw back, always ineffectiveness.
Concerning all acts of initiative (and creation), there is one elementary truth, the ignorance of which kills countless ideas and splendid plans: that the moment one definitely commits one-self, then providence moves too. All sorts of things occur to help one that would never otherwise have occurred. A whole stream of events issues from the decision, raising in one's favor all manner of unforeseen incidents and meetings and material assistance, which no man could have dreamed would have come his way.
Whatever you can do or dream you can, begin it. Boldness has genius, power and magic in it. Begin it now.
It had long since come to my attention that people of accomplishment rarely sat back and let things happen to them. They went out and happened to things.
Once you make a decision, the universe conspires to make it happen.”
-Ralph Waldo Emerson
