"The preservation of a free government requires, not merely that the metes and bounds which separate each department of power be invariably maintained, but more especially that neither of them be suffered to overleap the great barrier which defends the rights of the people. The rulers who are guilty of such encroachment exceed the commission from which they derive their authority, and are TYRANTS. The people who submit to it are governed by laws made neither by themselves nor by an authority derived from them and are slaves….."

An Exposé Of Judicial And Executive Fraud In Administration Of The Income Tax

The truth, the lies, the reasons and the cover-up.

Introduction

OVER RECENT DECADES, state and federal tax agencies, with the occasional assistance of some courts, have engaged in a massive subterfuge for the purpose of successfully misapplying the income tax on an enormous scale. The scheme has many facets, some more subtle and challenging to demonstrate or take in than others.

One of the simplest facets of the scheme to demonstrate is a systematic falsification of Supreme Court jurisprudence on the subject of the income tax itself, and of the taxing clauses of the United States Constitution generally. This falsification involves outright lying-- even in official documents and proceedings-- about what has been expressly held by the high court on these subjects.

Understand, “falsification” as used here doesn't mean “misinterpretation”. The falsifications considered here involve actually ascribing to the court declarations which it not only did not make, but which it expressly rejected as false.

These falsifications have been created because what the Supreme Court DOES rule regarding the tax is inconvenient to modern government's desire for massive revenue, and they are used as pretexts for assuming authority to administer the income tax in ways contrary to its actual nature, for the benefit of government treasuries and those who control them.

THE PRESENTATION BELOW WILL SHOW what the Supreme Court actually says about the nature and authority for the income tax. Also shown will be examples of the falsifications of these holdings by both the U.S. Internal Revenue Service and a couple of federal courts; the reason these falsifications are so important to the revenue-hungry government; and a brief introduction to the cover-up that has been underway during the near decade-and-a-half since the subterfuge was first discovered and revealed.

Please read all that follows carefully and completely.

The Truth

IN 1916, THE US SUPREME COURT laid out the meaning and effect of the 16th Amendment in a unanimous ruling in the case of Brushaber v. Union Pacific R. Co., 240 U.S. 1 (1916). The Brushaber ruling, which remains the undisturbed law today, unambiguously confines the income tax to the objects and administrative rules of an indirect excise tax only.

The Brushaber court holds that the sole purpose and effect of the 16th amendment is to undo and overrule its conclusion in Pollock v. Farmer's Loan & Trust, 158 U.S. 601 (1895) that a tax on otherwise excise-qualified dividends and rent became a property tax in those particular applications. The Pollock court had reasoned that the linkage of dividends and rent to their personal property sources-- the stock from which dividends are derived, and the real estate from which rent is derived-- transformed the income excise on those gains into a property tax on the sources, which therefore required apportionment in its imposition.

The 16th Amendment, says the Brushaber court, severs (prohibits) the “source” linkage imagined by the Pollock court. This overruling of Pollock allows the by-then 51-year-old income tax to be revived and to resume application as the excise tax it always has been.

THE BRUSHABER COURT VERY EXPRESSLY RULES that the 16th Amendment does NOT...

A Fine, Shiny Little Nugget Found In Passing

Hardly a cork-popper, certainly, but still...

WHILE BROWSING AN OLD EDITION of Black's Law Dictionary last week I happened upon this interesting entry:

     EMPLOYEE: This word "is from the French, but has become naturalized in our language. Strictly and etymologically, it means 'a person employed,' but, in practice in the French language, it ordinarily is used to signify a person in some official employment, and as generally used with us, though perhaps not confined to any official employment, it is understood to mean some permanent employment or position." 2 Lans. 453. See, also, 75 N. Y. 41; 111 Ind. 324, 12 N. E. Rep. 501.

     This word is more extensive than "clerk" or "officer." It signifies any one in place, or having charge or using a function, as well as one in office. 3 Ct. Cl. 260.

OF COURSE, THE STATUTORY DEFINITION of "employee" provided in tax law at 26 U.S.C. § 3401(c) is the controlling definition of that term as used for purposes of "wage"-related issues.* But it can hardly be disputed that selection of the word to be so defined for use in labeling government workers and office-holders will have been guided by the meanings of available choices. As shown above, contrary to ordinary knowledge and common usage the word "employee" was understood in its formal usage to have more or less the same meaning it ended up with as a term in the law.

Gotta love these little jewels scattered here and there throughout the landscape of the historical record...

*The 3401(c) definition actually covers any meaning of "employee" as used in relation to both 3401(a) "wages" and 3121(a) "wages". As the Supreme Court put it in Rowan Cos. v. United States, 452 US 247 (1981), “The plain language and legislative histories of the relevant statutes indicate that Congress intended for its definition of “wages” to be interpreted in the same manner for FICA and FUTA as for income-tax withholding.”

Daft And Despicable Deniers

What the hell is wrong with these people?!

CAN YOU EVEN IMAGINE how abysmally stupid someone would have to be to continue to doubt or deny that CtC has revealed the actual, complete and insurmountable truth about the income tax in light of the overwhelming mountain of legal, practical and logical evidence to the contrary? (Not to mention the 200,000 "admissions against interest" by the IRS and dozens of state tax agencies over the last 14 years...)

Plainly any such denier must either be abysmally stupid or be an abysmally corrupt government official or other person who sees him or herself as benefitting from the lies about the tax by which America has suffered for 75 years now. Isn't this true?

I HOPE NOBODY OUT THERE is tolerating a single CtC denier anywhere within the "tax honesty" or "activist" communities. Such people (and they are out there, flogging their pet tin-foil-hat theories) are the millstone around the neck of the rest of us, keeping the truth about the tax from getting the audience it needs in order to bring about the transformation of the American landscape which it is uniquely capable of doing.

Nor should anyone be tolerating denial, either implicit or explicit, by any lawyer, accountant, journalist, judge, elected official or bureaucrat. "Denial" by any of these types is collusion and corruption, or rank cowardice at best.

MORE, DENIAL OF THE OBVIOUS AND STATE-RESTRAINING TRUTH ABOUT THE TAX might have a sinister aspect, as well. The State, whose growth and power are made possible by the lies about the tax which the deniers enable, is the mechanism by which some exercise control over others through the application (or credible threat) of violence.

The bulked-up State, in short, is the means by which some rule others. The larger the State, the more successfully it rules, and the more easily it can brush aside or overpower Constitutionally-based objections to its edicts, exploitations and abuses.

I don't personally imagine a long-running, deliberate and closely-controlled effort to subjugate the American people. I discuss this in the "Interlude" portion of CtC, as many of you will recall, where I argue instead that the only large-scale and long-running "conspiracy" in America is a soft one-- a coincidental conspiracy of interests.

In my view America suffers from Adam Smith's "invisible hand" in reverse: the evil effect of many individuals unwisely entrusted with too much power who, in using it to look out for their own interests individually, work a massive harm to society.

But the growth of the State unquestionably serves to create the tool by which deliberate subjugation could be accomplished. Indeed, the overgrown State made uniquely possible by the misapplication of the income tax is the ONLY means by which the American people could be subjugated.

And who knows? Maybe I'm wrong in my view, and those seeing a darker picture are right.

Warrior Rick Van Camp recently shared with me a few words from that darker perspective which ends with a key point that is just as cogent whether you see Leviathan growing among us for the one reason or the other:

In 1913 Woodrow Wilson stated: “Since I entered politics, I have chiefly had men’s views confided to me privately. Some of the biggest men in the United States, in the Field of commerce and manufacture, are afraid of something. They know that there is a power somewhere so organized, so subtle, so watchful, so interlocked, so complete, so pervasive, that they better not speak above their breath when they speak in condemnation of it.”

And this continues today. When opportunistic liars like Al Gore can make hundreds of millions from outright lies and manipulation of Science while producing a "carbon footprint" of at least 100 people, when a treasonous dog like Obama can plot the overthrow of an elected President in Public and get away with it without a whimper from the so-called Press, or the Congress; when tens of millions of "Americans" can vote for a continuation of nanny-state entitlements while allowing their children to be indoctrinated by those who would continue them as children, when a once-proud and independent people submit reflexively to a militarized State army of (now armed) bureaucratic functionaries who grope their women and young daughters in airports and soon bus and train stations, invade their homes on the slightest pretext (more than 50,000 SWAT raids last year) and terrorize, injure and sometimes murder innocents...

That organized, subtle and watchful power is HERE, among us, and in your face. And YOU pay for it.

YOU PAY FOR IT. That's the big point.

If you're a CtC denier, it doesn't matter whether what's going on is grayish or pitch-black-- either way, YOU'RE PAYING FOR IT.

I don't mean, "You're paying the price, sweetie". I mean YOU ARE PERSONALLY FINANCING WHAT IS BEING DONE TO YOU AND TO YOUR CHILDREN AND TO THIS WONDERFUL COUNTRY. And you're doing so voluntarily, and in most cases, simply because you refuse to learn or accept what CtC has revealed. In a word, you're daft.

And as for "official" and "professional" CtC deniers, you're the ones keeping the lie going to which the daft succumb. There's a word for that, too. Despicable.

"It is impossible to calculate the moral mischief, if I may so express it, that mental lying has produced in society. When a man has so far corrupted and prostituted the chastity of his mind as to subscribe his professional belief to things he does not believe he has prepared himself for the commission of every other crime."

-Thomas Paine

***

LITTLE BIT OF A P. S. on this article: I have to cut a pass to a lot of folks out there not yet embracing CtC and acting on its revelations to help transform America. I'm talking about the huge majority of folks who have never heard of any of this, or who have only seen the lies and smears and pretenses of "official" resistance to CtC (such as is discussed here and here).

These folks are out there effectively serving as weight on the deniers' side of the scale-- and also financing the Beast-- because I haven't been able to get my videos or other liberation information to your Uncle Jerry (or Aunt Sally, or Junior, or your buddy Sam, or whoever). I haven't been able to because I DON'T KNOW THESE PEOPLE, and have no contact info, and wouldn't know the best way to speak to them, anyway.

YOU have to speak to these folks, and introduce and share the material. Think about it. When was the last time you forwarded one of my videos around to everyone in your address book?

Do you not do it because you don't think your family, friends and acquaintances would be interested? You're wrong. Last autumn 62,979,879 Americans voted for Donald Trump in the hope that he would restore the republic. Plenty of people are interested in freedom and the rule of law.

In a minute you're going to watch Arron Reeves' wonderful video on his awakening to the truth about the tax, and what that means to him. Are you going to share it as widely as the next Kardashian video will get shared? I hope so

It is because that DOESN'T get done that "official" deniers get away with it. I want you to think about that.

Do you want to get to where you don't have to file claims for the return of your property at all, because it never got diverted in the first place? That will happen the moment that my videos get a million viewings in a few weeks like some do, instead of struggling for a year or more to reach a few thousand. It won't happen before that.

The "official" deniers can control a slow burning fire. Our fire has to get vigorous, and only you can make that happen.

Constitutional Taxation: An In-Depth Study

What is, what isn't, what cannot be, and why.

SCHOLAR BRIAN D. SWANSON has produced an excellent in-depth analysis of the Constitutional tax provisions and Supreme Court jurisprudence regarding same. Find this fine and timely work here.

I recommend this paper to all. In fact, I recommend sharing it with your favorite HR person, CPA, tax attorney and your family as a worthy and worthwhile accompaniment to The Fascinating Truth About The 16th Amendment.

“Although all men are born free, slavery has been the general lot of the human race. Ignorant--they have been cheated; asleep--they have been surprised; divided--the yoke has been forced upon them. But what is the lesson?…the people ought to be enlightened, to be awakened, to be united, that after establishing a government they should watch over it....It is universally admitted that a well-instructed people alone can be permanently free.”

If you work in the private sector, stop falsely swearing that your private-sector earnings are federal “income”1.  Perjury is a crime.  Exercise the law’s provision for protecting your private-sector earnings from the 154-year-old2 indirect excise known as the federal income tax.  Rebut fraudulent allegations made by your payers regarding the legal nature of your work and the earnings derived therefrom, so that you pay only your fair share.  Join the hundreds of thousands of honest, law-abiding Americans who have been doing so for more than a decade.  Learn how for free at losthorizons.com.

2—The income tax in the United States was first instituted into law on July 1, 1862, during Lincoln’s presidency under the excise laws of the United States.   The preamble to the 1939 Internal Revenue Code traces its roots to this original income tax law.

Trolls Against The Truth: A Dis-Information Campaign

UNLESS YOU'VE LOOKED, you can have no idea of the volume, intensity and mendacity deployed in the government's efforts to discourage Americans from learning what is revealed in CtC. It's truly astonishing.

A lot of folks are aware of the show-trial events in which my wife and I have received state-engineered public beatings meant to scare people away from the truth about the "ignorance tax" scam. But many are unaware of the overall campaign. This is a shame, really, because a focused propaganda effort like this one is a very powerful acknowledgement of the significance of CtC's revelations.

While the majority of Americans do not yet know how CtC protects them from the vampire state, the vampire itself certainly does. Dis-information campaigns like this one make that very clear.

 

FORMER CBS REPORTER SHERYL ATKISSON describes some aspects of this sort of dis-information campaign in the following video. Despite the annoying preliminary 15 seconds or so of advertising, her presentation is very much worth watching:

((H/T to Greg Belcher for finding and forwarding this great presentation.)

Losthorizons.com is one of those websites specifically-targeted by the corrupt interests at Wikipedia described by Atkisson. The behind-the-scenes folks at that site won't allow links on their pages to anything posted at losthorizons.com, nor even just text corrections of misinformation in their pages about the income tax.

That's the least of it. Click here for some specific discussion of the enormous scare campaign that's been actively spreading false information in hope of discouraging legitimate media attention, as well as men and women simply seeking the truth about the tax and liberty from the scourge of the "ignorance tax".

PLEASE GIVE SOME SERIOUS THOUGHT to the fact that YOU being secure in your own freedom rests on others learning the truth as well, and recognize that it falls to you to help overcome the dis-information campaign. Post and share your videos; share your victories; help silence the agents-provocateur and distraction-injectors whose nonsense is discussed and debunked here; and widely (and frankly, impatiently) share this page, this page and this page, challenging everyone in your address book to disconnect the phone and the TV for an afternoon and get educated.

Doing these things will be what makes it happen, Cap'n.

Well done, Derek!

WANTED! Your Article!!

Sharpen those quills, people!

MY FRIENDS, THIS NEWSLETTER NEEDS your creativity, your clear thinking, and your expressive energy! In short, this newsletter needs your journalism!

I know that writing for public consumption isn't everyone's cup of tea. But those who CAN string a few words together can importantly serve the educated, activist community by writing and submitting thoughtful, well-researched and persuasive articles on certain topics for posting on these pages.

Here are several topics for which submissions are desired:

  • Why the media is silent about the astonishing 13-years-and-counting history of government acknowledgements of the accuracy of CtC's revelations and its simultaneous efforts to keep Americans from knowing about those revelations.

  • Why educating more Americans about the true history and actual provisions of the income tax is the most important thing that anyone seeking to restrain the state and restore the republic can do today.

  • Why "tax honesty gurus" stay mum about CtC and its unprecedented accomplishments in freeing people from improper application of the tax.

  • Why hunkering down in every-man-for-himself silence in the face of statist and fascist assaults on the rule of law leads to greater harm than what is hunkered-down against; that is, how fearful behavior just strengthens the thing feared.

  • How much better it is to encourage (and practice) bravery, honesty and openness than to counsel (and succumb to) fear, lies and concealment.

Articles should be 1500 words or less, with working titles and author's name at the beginning. Composition should strive for two and three sentence paragraphs organized in the form of a theme paper. Intend to persuade and inspire, not browbeat. Format should be either .doc or .odt. All submissions selected for posting may be subject to editing.

Submit to the regular (non-encrypted) address found here, as an attachment to an email.

BTW, CtC Warrior Greg Sutton has just had a good educational/inspirational article published here.

Why Aren't People Suing?

 

In Passing... Three cheers for Russia, which has stepped up to join Iran in aid of its long-time ally Syria against the noxious "Islamic State" nutcases that have sprung up like toadstools in the wake of the destabilization of the Middle East by the noxious neocon nutcases running Washington for the last 15 years.

 

More Educated Americans Testify, Showing Why The Deep State Fears CtC

"If the taxpayers of this country ever discovered that we operate on 98% bluff, the entire system will collapse."

-Reported remark by an internal revenue service officer to Sen. Henry E. Bellmon (R. Okla.) on April 15, 1971.

 

"The Tax Code represents the genius of legal fiction...  The IRS has never really known why people pay the income tax... The IRS encourages voluntary compliance, through FEAR."

-Jack Warren Wade Jr., former IRS officer in charge of the IRS Nationwide Revenue Officer Training Program, in his book ‘When You Owe The IRS’

CtC-EDUCATED, AMERICAN HERITAGE-LOVING grown-up Joe Black shares his testimony here. Tom Romin shares his testimony here. Greg Sutton shares his here. Enjoy Robert Harvey's testimony here. Joe's, Tom's and Greg's and Robert's words, like those of others that can be found here, are solid examples of why the Deep State fears CtC.

It's this simple: If you study CtC you will know the truth about the tax. Further, you will know that you know the truth, beyond any doubt.

ONLY CtC will give you that certainty, because CtC is exclusively and uniquely complete and correct, as can be seen by any of thousands of different acknowledgements of every possible kind, from this to this to this to this.

Most telling, in its own way, is the government robotically resorting for years now to the strawman of falsely ascribing to CtC the ridiculous arguments that "wages are not income" and that only federal, state and local government workers are subject to the tax. This false ascription is then used as the basis for claiming the book is "false and frivolous"-- a lame and transparent dodge begging the question of why the state won't acknowledge what the book REALLY says and then attempt to dispute THAT.

Once you know the truth revealed in CtC, acting in accordance with that truth WILL liberate you from being an ignorance tax serf. This, the deep state fears mightily.

FURTHER, ACTING IN ACCORDANCE WITH THAT deeply-known truth can NEVER legitimately qualify as any kind of a "tax crime", or for any penalties or fines. This is not only because what CtC teaches about the law and the tax is technically and legally correct, but also because all tax crimes are crimes of "intent" and all penalties rest for their legitimacy on "intent".

An educated filing in sincere accordance with what is known and believed to be true and correct cannot be lawfully treated as invalid, criminal or subject to penalty. Any effort by the state to claim otherwise is inherently corrupt.

Nor can any accurate and truthful filing be overcome by any lawful means, which is why the state is so focused on forcing Doreen to declare that she doesn't believe what CtC teaches, with the openly-declared hope that her doing so would discourage other Americans from acting on what they also believe.

LIKE HENRY BELLMON WAS TOLD, the "ignorance tax" scheme relies on bluff-- pretending that the truth is what the government suggests that it is (despite what the law and the courts and every other authority have actually been saying about it for 150 years). And like Jack Warren Wade, Jr. says, the scheme relies on fear-- doing everything possible to make people afraid to act on their scheme-shattering knowledge of the truth.

In short, the "ignorance tax" scheme can only survive if Americans can be bluffed into not seeking out the truth, and if those who learn that truth can be discouraged from acting on that truth.

But those who know the truth, and know they know the truth, cannot not act.

Acting on the truth is a moral imperative, as well as a legal imperative.

The undaunted actions of those who know the truth are "calls" against the bluff. Each "call" ratchets-up the spread of the truth exponentially and forces state acknowledgement of that truth, one way or another; and each such acknowledgment takes America one step closer to freedom from the 75-year state-unleashing, people-restraining "ignorance tax" scheme.

And THAT's why the deep state fears CtC.

"Be the change you want to see in the world."

A New Policy

I HAVE DONE MY BEST to lead this country to liberty from the mis-applied income tax. I have labored hard. I've shed a lot of sweat, a fair bit of blood and more than a few tears. But I seem to be pretty poor at that kind of work.

When I have asked all of you for what I firmly believe is a necessary resource to move the ball downfield and give all of us the best chance at justice and an end to the assault on the rule of law-- simple testimonial videos requiring nothing from any of you but the phone in your pocket and three minutes of speaking from the heart-- I have had only a handful of people answer my call.

I CAN'T KEEP GOING THIS WAY. I have to be able to turn my attention away from writing new persuasive or skepticism-addressing articles week after week, and toward research, analysis and educational presentations that will benefit everyone already in this community. I need time to do some suing, and to bring together the resources and talent toward that end.

As said, it is my firm belief that your testimonial videos are the resource that I need to make big things happen, and they are unquestionably the thing I need to allow me to turn my attention away from trying to get horses to drink at the waterhole to which I have led them. Your words, in your great numbers and all in your own different ways, will do that better than anything I write possibly could.

And yet, you are not providing them. This, despite my having been asking you for them for many years now.

Therefore, with enormous reluctance, I am making portions of this website restricted access only. People have been urging me to do this for years now, telling me I should impose a charge to access my work-product, so as to enable me to keep producing.

I have never been inclined to charge fees for access. I ask for donations, and will continue to do that, and if they do not come, then I will conclude that my work is of no value to anyone, and I will close shop.

But I now WILL charge a special something for access to some key portions of that work-- testimonial videos, as discussed, described and demonstrated here.

SELECTED PAGES CONSTITUTING primarily "legal resources" pages now require passwords for access, and to get a password, I need your video. Similarly, if an email comes my way asking for guidance or assistance, it had best have a video attached, if I don't already have yours posted.

I hate to play it this way, but I want to win.

I'll tell you a story from when I was coaching my kids in soccer. Both of my kids at a certain age in their careers had run into a wall common to all but the very exceptional. They had gotten to be pretty good, and they wanted to enjoy the benefits of their hard work. But the arrival of this interest coincided with a new self-consciousness which made them reluctant to risk failing and looking foolish. So, they were hanging back from seizing the main chance when it appeared, and driving for the goal.

My solution was to post on the wall of our dining room a couple of simple points about self-discipline, the chief of which is this: You can't score a goal if you don't take a shot.

That's how it is here, too. If you don't stand up, you are laying down, and you'll never score that goal.

Here is what my kids live by now, in their own version of that lesson. I hear it from them all the time as they excel (accompanied by the sound of a father's breast swelling with pride): Go hard, or go home.

You, too. Go hard, or go home. Send those videos.

Do I ask for a lot? I want your victories to post, your financial support, your efforts at spreading the word, and your beautiful faces and inspiring words, too. It IS a lot.

But I'll let Thomas Paine explain:

"Tyranny, like hell, is not easily conquered; yet we have this consolation with us, that the harder the conflict, the more glorious the triumph. What we obtain too cheaply, we esteem too lightly. Heaven knows how to put a proper price on its goods; and it would be strange indeed, if so celestial an article as freedom should not be highly rated.”

Fear nothing but God.

What Makes YOU A Warrior For The Truth?

We each have our reasons, and our story. It's time, and it's needed, for you to share yours with the world.

 

"The day we see truth and do not speak is the day we begin to die."

-Martin Luther King, Jr.

What does it for you?

Is it simply because no moral and upstanding person has any choice when it comes to telling the truth over his or her signature, whether on tax forms or anywhere else?

 

Is it recognition of the critical importance of the rule of law, and the knowledge that if everybody leaves its caretaking to someone else, it will soon be lost to us completely?

 

Is it the money?

 

Maybe it's just simple respect for your own rights as a human being, who is not and cannot be not involuntarily subordinated to others?

 

Maybe it's just simple respect for your general civic responsibility to be the grown-up and enforce frugality and restraint on a big, powerful creature of our own devising which otherwise is like a badly-raised teenage boy given whiskey and car keys and let loose on the road to wreak havoc?

 

Or is it, perhaps, a more acute anxiety that if our bonfire of a state isn't damped, and quickly, it'll soon burn down the house around us all?

 

What IS it that firms up your jaw and stiffens your resolve?

 

It's time to take off the bushel and share your light!

 

I would like you to think about what it is that motivates you for a few moments (or all day, if you like), and then send me your thoughts. I want to put YOUR reasons to work inspiring folks who don't yet understand what this is all about.

 

In this day and age, the most effective way for you to share your thinking for the benefit of others is to video-record yourself talking about how you feel, and explaining what inspires and motivates YOU.

 

All you need is a webcam or cell-phone equipped with a camera. If you don't have, or know how to use, one of these, have a friend help.

 

If needed, write a little script for yourself. Better, though, to just speak extemporaneously, after spending a little time sorting out your thoughts and getting down into your heart. Perhaps make it a video of someone in your family, or a close friend, interviewing you.

 

Keep yourself to no more than 2 or 3 minutes, and keep in mind that the purpose is not to educate, but to INSPIRE, ENCOURAGE and ENERGIZE. Your video will be one of many to be shared.

 

You needn't feel any obligation to be profound, and you shouldn't try to explain anything about the law, other than to say that you have read it and you know it's on your side. You just need to be sincere, and uplifting. Your object is to make your audience want to have what you have, and to be where you are in your heart.

 

Keep in mind that you're speaking to an audience that doesn't yet know ANYTHING about the subject, and whose first reaction is, "This must be illegal; this must be dangerous; this is too good to be true." You want to pull that audience right past such things, and straight to a focus on truth, morality, and our American heritage of liberty and the rule of law.

 

Remember: INSPIRE, ENCOURAGE, ENERGIZE.

 

Speak about rights. Speak about morality, and the obligation of a grown-up and responsible person to speak the truth and to enforce the Constitution. Speak about everyone's duty to give to God what is God's, always, and to Caesar only what is really Caesar's. Speak of your obligation to respect yourself, and to look out for the current and future well-being of your children and your fellow citizens. Speak of CtC, and what its information has done for your understanding and resolve. Show the book.

 

If you have had victories, describe them. Better still, show them, if possible.

 

Be clear about just what you accomplished: EVERYTHING back-- Social Security, Medicare and all; a "notice of deficiency" closing notice; an on-paper agreement or acknowledgment that your earnings weren't subject to the tax and everything withheld or paid-in was an "overpayment"; a transcript showing all $0s; or whatever happened.

 

When you speak of state victories, name the state. If you had to overcome balkiness from a tax agency before winning any victory, describe that, too!

 

If you're in a battle now, speak of your resolve to uphold the law, come what may. If you haven't yet begun to act, speak of your decision to do so, and your plans.

 

Remember, your purpose is to INSPIRE, ENCOURAGE and ENERGIZE.

 

If you're dealing with ongoing balkiness, describe that, too, if you wish-- but be sure to explain why you're not discouraged, and why you are not standing down, not slinking back into the barn, and not choosing to endorse the lies.

 

Mention what you do for a living, whether you're a doctor, homemaker, lawyer, trucker, IT guy or gal, or a retiree or student. Help people understand that the company of grown-up activist Americans they are being invited to join cuts across all demographics and all interests-- with the common denominator being respect for the law and love of the principles on which this great country was founded.

 

This is your chance to get a LOT accomplished.

 

We've all had frustrating occasions of trying to explain all this to a friend, neighbor, family member or co-worker, only to pile up against the wall of a mind not yet ready to listen and learn. Here is your chance to address a self-selected audience of folks who have themselves decided that it's time for them to begin paying attention, and have clicked on your testimonial for exactly that reason.

 

Further, think about this: You want judges, bureaucrats, CPAs, lawyers, the HR people where you work, your pastors, your neighbors and everyone else to acknowledge the truth about the tax openly and straightforwardly. How and why would these folks do this if YOU won't?

You want these folks to learn the truth. Why would they even recognize that there is a truth to be learned if you won't attest to having learned it yourself? You've got to stand up, face forward and chin up and tell these folks that you have studied and checked and verified and seen the evidence and seen the government evasions and you know that the tax is not the capitation that the beneficiary government wants everyone to think it is but a benign, but strictly limited thing, and that they need to study and learn that, too.

Again, if you have victories to show, that's nice, and powerful, too. But you don't have to have victories to display in order to declare your knowledge of what the law says. I've never flown around the world, but I've seen the evidence and considered the arguments, and I'm not hesitant to declare it a sphere...

Even those of you who haven't yet studied CtC have surely read this short document, and have verified everything in it for yourself. You should therefore be declaring its veracity and its message, loud and proud. Again, if you won't say it, how can you hope that others will ever even bother to look at the facts?

Be the change you want to see in the world, or there won't be any change.

So, please make and send those videos right away! You can share them with me via a cloud-based drive space like OneDrive.Live.com or GoogleDrive, or mail DVDs to me at 232 Oriole St., Commerce Twp., Michigan 48382, or even email to me if each file is no more than 20 megs (and you can break a video up if need be-- I can reassemble them). Render as .mpg or mp4, if possible; if not, send them how you have them and I'll make them work.

 

Remember, the restoration of institutional respect for individual rights and the rule of law depends on enough individuals insisting upon it. Do your part to let those starting to rub the sleep from their eyes know that there is a community already waiting for their fellowship with open arms and open hearts and shining spirits.

 

See how some of your fellow warriors for the truth have done their parts in videos sent over the years, many of which are posted here.

 

"Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it's the only thing that ever has."

The Crime of the Misapplied Income Tax

from

Was Grandpa Really a Moron?

Critical Inquiries for a New American Century

 

Bob’s Bicycles

or

Getting Free Of The "Income" Tax Scheme Is As Easy As Falling Off A Bike

 

 

 

To get an idea of how today's "income" tax scheme works, try this little exercise:

 

Think of the federal government as a guy named Bob, who lives down the street from you in a town that is really big on bicycles. Bikes get used for commuting, deliveries, shopping, etc.. In fact, other than walking, bicycles are the exclusive form of transportation in your town.

Your neighbor Bob has a by-the-mile bicycle-renting business-- "Bob's Bicycles". Bob's Bicycles is far and away the biggest business in town.

Part of Bob’s success is because he does a lot of contract business. However, Bob doesn't just get paid by riders who have signed an agreement with him, or even just those using Bob's bikes. Bob gets something every time anybody in town does any riding at all, through an odd combination of circumstances that took many years to come together.

 

Here's how it happened...

 

Bob's Bicycles was launched long ago by the great grandfather of the present Bob (Bob IV). Great Grandpa Bob started out not only with a main location for his contract business-- he also had the bright idea of setting up spots around town where he parked some of his bikes for use by the more occasional rider, on an "honor system". Anyone could take and use one of these bikes, but they were expected to keep track of their mileage, and send Bob a "1040 Mileage Ridden/Rent Due Form" (and the appropriate rent), periodically. The initial design of the form was like this:

 

I, ______________, rode a Bob's Bicycle a total of _____ miles this year.

At Bob's rental rate of $.15 per mile, I owe Bob $______

 

I said that Great Grandpa Bob planned to deal with these occasional riders on the "honor system", and that's true. But he liked his money, too, and didn't want to miss anything that was due him. So, after setting up the "self-serve" locations, Great Grandpa Bob went around handing out "W-2, 1099 or K-1 Rider Reporting Forms" to every other business in town. The forms-- accompanied by notices that if Bob didn't get his rent from someone riding a bicycle in connection with any business, he would sue the company involved-- said:

You Can’t Fight Well When You Don’t Know What You’re Fighting About

If you are having an argument with the IRS or any other tax agency,

  • You are NOT being presumed to have made “corporate profit”.

  • You are NOT being alleged to have received “foreign income”.

  • You are NOT entangled in an invisible “adhesion contract”.

  • You are NOT being obligated by a law whose subject is never identified.

You are being targeted because REAL EVIDENCE exists that YOU PERSONALLY HAD “INCOME” to which the revenue laws apply-- even though that evidence is almost certainly incorrect, and CAN be corrected.

If each person receiving this newsletter each week distributed as few as 100 of any of the great outreach tools featured here to co-workers, friends, neighbors and family members (or just strangers on the street, in the mall, etc...), we could have SEVERAL MILLION new Americans suddenly introduced to the liberating truth about the tax!

 

Just like that! In one week!

 

C'mon, people, let's roll on this!

A Few Tips For Making Best Use Of This WebSite

 

USE THE SITE MAP!!!

 

USE THE SITE SEARCH!!!

 

When directed to a page by topic or link, read everything.

 

I know that this can mean the investment of a lot of time, attention and effort, but although some may imagine otherwise, I don't write as much as I do because I can't think of any other way to spend my time...

 

Furthermore, when you encounter a hyperlink within, or associated with, the text you are reading, follow it!

 

It is pretty common these days for web-based material to be littered with hyperlinks. Sometimes the purpose is to provide definitions or examples, in order to ensure that folks reading the original material aren't presented with a word or reference which they don't understand. Sometimes the links lead to illustrations pertinent to the original text.

 

It is common-- and perfectly understandable-- for folks who are confident that they are familiar with language or references within the main text they are reading to get in the habit of skipping over included links. I do it all the time, myself!

 

However, I very rarely include links for definitional or explanatory purposes; and when I DO make a link out of text in one page it is generally to another self-contained page, rather than merely illustrative material. These other pages contain material the clear understanding of which I deem highly important for the proper and complete understanding of the original page. (Links to CtC, the Victories pages, CtC Warriors and so on are obvious exceptions to this general rule. On the other hand, a link to the victory Highlights or 'Every Which Way But Loose' pages, which might seem like such exceptions, are not. The special selection of victories on those pages, and the filed docs and tax-agency correspondences included therewith, themselves constitute highly instructive material which merits careful attention. Thus care needs to be taken in all cases.)

 

Please make a habit of clicking on all provided links and at least looking briefly to ensure that the linked page is one with which you are completely familiar from another study session.

 

Finally, please keep in mind that, annoying though it may seem at first blush (but not, I trust, upon reflection), I constantly tweak material already posted. Obviously this doesn't mean that every page is in flux at all times, but it does mean that if you are directed to a page that IS familiar, it's worthwhile to read it through again if it's been a while since your last having done so.
