"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….."

The Fifteenth Upgraded Edition of CtC Is Now Available!

BTW, a word of caution to everyone-- copies of CtC sold anywhere except from the link above may not be current editions (which is now the fifteenth). CHECK, and if you can't get that assurance from the seller, don't buy. I do upgrades in EVERY edition. As many printings as a copy is below the fifteenth is as many upgrades behind it is.

The Babel Curse

As long as the "tax honesty" community continues to embrace, or even just tolerate, a cacophony of unharmonious notions, the path to victory will continue to elude far too many good folks.

SO, THE STORY GOES LIKE THIS: Back in the day, humans were getting confident in themselves. They decided to build a tower to the heavens in a city called Babel.

But Yaweh didn't like the idea, so He cursed the builders with an affliction of a multiplicity of languages. Each began speaking a different tongue from the others. Unable to work as one coordinated host, the would-be tower-builders saw their ambitious project fail.

NOW, THE STATE state ain't no god. But those who run it want it to be treated as God, with all within its reach made subject, if only by hook or by crook, to its every demand.

The key to that kind of power is control over the wealth of every man (either directly or through credible, behavior-influencing threat). To the degree that you control a man's sustenance, or the choices he must make in order to maximize and secure that sustenance, you control his will.

Knowing this path to power, the progressives who have had control of the State during its supernatural ascendancy since the the early 1940s concocted the "ignorance tax" scheme. This is a scheme under which the actually benign and highly-desirable income tax is subverted to an evil purpose.

The actual object of the income tax is the return to the public purse of a portion of the private profits enjoyed by some as a benefit of federal privileges. Under the "ignorance tax" subversion the income tax is made into an attack on the liberty and property rights of people who make no use of such gainful privileges, and whose activities are not actually subject to the tax. Under this scheme the tax reaches nearly everyone and nearly every economic act, while the income tax as actually written does not.

So, the "ignorance tax" is the dream-scheme of the progressives who control the State. It delivers to them control over Americans' choices and behaviors in ways both gross and perniciously subtle, and at the same time causes a vast river of snaffled wealth to flow into their hands for the financing of their every pet project and for taking good care of themselves and their friends.

BUT THERE'S A PROBLEM with this progressivist dream-scheme, of course. It IS just a scheme. And about 14 years ago it got unraveled and laid bare to any who would look, in 'Cracking the Code- The Fascinating Truth About Taxation In America' (CtC). That's the good news.

Unfortunately for the rest of us, there's bad news, too. The operators of the State are crafty enough to learn from the best (even if they are very selective about what lessons they take in...).

Upon becoming aware of CtC, and even while beginning a so-far 14 years of steadily acknowledging its accuracy in the most practical and concrete terms possible, the State's operators quickly did all that they could to conceal CtC from the eyes of the very large "tax honesty" community. The last thing they wanted was that very large community coalescing around the real truth about the tax and beginning to act both knowledgeably and monolithically. This would be the end of the "ignorance tax" scheme and the restoration of the republic which they hate and have been doing all they could to destroy for the last 75 years.

The concealment effort consisted of a series of deliberate misrepresentations of CtC's unique and accurate revelations. Those revelations were made to seem just re-lipsticked versions of various old and errant notions long cluttering the landscape to those who never carefully studied the book for themselves.

CtC was variously misrepresented by trolls and more importantly by government officials as just making hoary mistaken "tax honesty" arguments such as that "wages are not income" or "only government workers are subject to the tax" (as shown here, for example). Or as saying that "the tax only applies in "federal areas"", or as promoting the filing of re-labeled Irwin Schiff "zero returns".

Some of these misrepresentations were made at a very high level (as in this example). They allowed both the trolls and the handful of corrupt government officials willing to participate in the scam to pretend to disparage or dispute the book for the misinformation of the larger public.

At the same time, and more the focus of the effort, this misrepresentation campaign kept the 30-60 million-strong "tax honesty" community from studying what CtC actually says, due to imagining it to say only something they've all seen before (and to no benefit). This effect was exacerbated by "gurus" trying to make money or cred peddling their pet theories about the tax, and therefore necessarily steering their marks away from CtC.

Initially, these misrepresentation efforts were clumsy and collapsed of their own heavy-handed weight. As time went on they became more sophisticated and much darker, as well. (The history of the campaign as a whole can be seen here, for those who are interested.)

ALL IN ALL, THE "IGNORANCE TAX" SCHEMER'S disinformation campaign successfully invoked the Babel Curse upon the "tax honesty" community. CtC's accurate and endlessly-proven revelations are, for many in that community, just another unintelligible voice.

We could be an army building not a tower, but a bridge back to our Constitutionally-limited republic by shrinking the State down to its intended and original small, efficient and humble-servant status.. Instead, those in the "tax honesty" community are still scattered and hieing-off down forty-seven different paths-- forty-six of which lead nowhere except off the real field of battle and into the discouraging thickets.

IIt's such a shame. I hope I last long enough to see the people shrug-off this State-laid curse and begin marching as one, to the benefit of all.

“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.”

The Delusional Style In American Politics-- Redux

Last week's "Obamacare-Lite" reform debacle is a great case-in-point on behalf of this commentary. Please re-read with that example in mind.

A LOT OF INTERESTING QUIRKS in the American political psyche were highlighted during the last year and a half of presidential campaigning. The one most interesting to me is the widely-held notion that it's possible to have a big, rich and activist state which, despite these attributes, nonetheless humbly respects and protects individual rights and subordinates itself to the rule of law.

Accompanying this peculiar notion of a humble and respectful superstate is another silly idea-- that Americans can persistently send large amounts of money to Washington and their local statehouse and yet simultaneously be rescued from having to do so by people from Washington and their local statehouses. Both of these crazy ideas are expressions of the Delusional Style of American Politics.

Last week's "repeal Obamacare" debacle should prove to all that no remedy for Leviathan will be found in the political process. Even just this one recent statist offense-- a takeover of the healthcare market not fully in place until only two years ago and which is widely despised and considered a harmful wreck by Democrat and Republican voters alike-- is so invulnerable to a political remedy that a "reform" was the best the political process could muster, and even that half-assed effort failed.

I BELIEVE DELUSIONAL EXPECTATIONS of a humble Leviathan and saintly office-holders are the result of a relentless campaign by every political hack of the last 119 years to misconstrue the concept of "American Exceptionalism". Under the misconstruction, America-- or the American structure of government-- is imagined to be inherently incapable of elevating scoundrels, incompetents and outright criminals to office, or, at a minimum, is imagined to be self-correcting should this have happened by means of the same mechanisms that allowed the problem to arise in the first place.

But this is crazy-talk. Incumbents in high office have enjoyed re-election odds of over 90% for decades, with only few and slight occasional dips down to the upper 80s for the House and little more volatility for the Senate. The bureaucrats that actually interpret and administer policy are in office for life, as are the judges and justices that write and re-write and interpret and enforce whatever they fancy as the law./p>

Under no circumstances does the American structure contain meaningful self-correcting mechanisms by way of the political process. Quite the contrary, in fact.

Like any other, the American political process tends to cement into place the status quo generally. Also like most any other, the American political process tends to steadily raise the bar of political-class bad behavior which will be punished-- or even remarked at all-- by their fellows, who conveniently reserve unto themselves the power of punishment.

AGAIN, THE VIEW THAT AMERICAN EXCEPTIONALISM LIES in our political structure, which somehow can be counted on to produce good rulers or at least discipline the bad ones, is the source of delusion. In fact, that delusional notion is nearly the precise opposite of the truth.

American exceptionalism actually lies in the fact that key areas of power and decision-making are Constitutionally-withheld from our governmental organs and those who find their way into office, no matter how good or bad they may be. As Jefferson said, explaining this point, "Let no more be heard of confidence in [any officeholder], but bind him down from mischief by the chains of the Constitution."

Areas from which politicians and their cronies and appointees are kept by the chains of the Constitution are left to states (themselves bound down by their own Constitutions), and, more broadly and more importantly, to the rule of individual Americans. The Founders understood that individual Americans, and ONLY individual Americans, would, in exercising their power on behalf of their own self-interest in each such area, further the well-being of all in a natural "invisible hand" ripple-effect dynamic of sobriety and prosperity as first (or at least, most famously) spelled out by Adam Smith in his 1776 masterwork, 'The Wealth of Nations'.

Chief among the areas of power withheld from unreliable office-holders is the disposal of the wealth of individual citizens. The Constitution is carefully designed to prevent the state-- that is, the organ embodying the aggregate will of the majority-- from exercising control over any individual's wealth or means of acquiring wealth.

The Founders well understood that control over the means by which a man satisfies his wants is control over his will-- which is to say, despotism. Our federal and state Constitutions proscribe all means by which governments and those who run them can exercise despotism.

Thus we have the great rules of federal taxation by which any and all capitations and other direct taxes (click here to see what this means-- it's not what you think) are confined to application by the mechanism of apportionment. Only indirect taxes (click here to see what this means-- it's not what you think), which by their nature leave regulation of their burden in the hands of the individual (click here to see what this means-- it's not what you think), can be applied without this insulating device.

IT IS THESE CONTROLLING PROVISIONS RELATED TO TAXATION, along with other strict limits on government power and authority, that make America exceptional. It is not our political structure; rather, it is what we keep from being vulnerable to the products of our political structure.

RReliance on the political process, and hoping that White Knights will be produced thereby who will save us from the corruption and criminality of the last products of the political process, is just the usual delusional stupidity that has plagued and paralyzed mankind since the first naif hoped the new king would have lesser appetites than the one just departed. Only the exceptional withholding of power from any and all office-holders will do the trick.

Thinking Outside The Box About Those Evil Rooskies

I WANT TO PROPOSE A NOTION that will sound weird, and even heretical, at first. But please, walk with me for a little while, friends, and let's see where we end up.

Here's the notion: Americans need a strong, independent Russia.

I know, shock! We can see how a strong, independent Russia might not be automatically bad for us, but good for us?

Well, give me a chance here and I'll do my best to lay this out.

THERE ARE TWO FUNDAMENTAL PRINCIPLES I'm going to invoke as guidance down this path. First, there's the one well-stated in Acton's famous maxim that power corrupts, and absolute power corrupts absolutely. The second ground on which my notion rests is a little less lofty of expression but just as valid-- a fish rots from the head down.

SSo, Power. Corruption. Here?! 'Fraid so, Snow White.

And the equally unfortunate reality is that when the Washington DC-based organization we call the United States is unchecked by any meaningful countervailing power in its exercise of influence and coercion, it is very powerful, and therefore very corrupt-- even approaching a state of absolute corruption.

NOW, THE CORRUPTION TAKES HOLD FIRST in the executive branch. That's where foreign policy authority is concentrated and where the corrupting power is therefore wielded.

But the executive branch is naturally very influential on the rest of the governmental structure. And as in our number two principle, the fish rots from the head down, with the corruption eventually infecting all of government.

Worse, the executive branch is also the part of the state which interacts most with the American people ((through, for instance, the DoJ, HHS, DoE, EPA, IRS, and all the rest of the "alphabet agencies). It thus has a huge influence on society as a whole, making America in general at risk of infection with the corruption to a greater or lesser degree.

A LOOK AT THE EVIDENCE OF RECENT AMERICAN HISTORY bears out my premise. Today's very high but previously unknown degree of interaction between the federal executive branch and the people took hold only during the last 75 years. Over most of the preceding 140 years or so of our history most Americans had no contact of any kind with any federal official except the mailman.

That high degree of obnoxious and imposed executive interaction with the American citizenry resulted from the corrupt abrogation by Congress of its Constitutionally-intended and naturally-restraining primacy in the government structure over that seven-and-a-half decades. This abrogation by Congress and accretion of power in the executive coincides with the United States growing into an 800-lb sole superpower beginning at the end of World War II.

 

Let's parse this out for clarity. We see the executive branch grow in power in foreign affairs over the last 75 years (and thus increasingly corrupt, per Acton's maxim) as countervailing powers-- of which Russia had been the most effective-- declined.

During that same period Congress becomes increasingly corrupt, abrogating its Constitutional responsibilities about as fast as it receives the corrupt executive demands that they be surrendered. Simultaneously, American society grows increasingly corrupt, as evidenced by the tolerance with which this progressive Congressional corruption is met.

(The "Cold War" is not the cause of the growth of the state during this period-- it was simply a pretext for the increasing exercise of executive foreign-policy authority during 42 of these years. The state grew in order to fuel that exercise.

The proof of this point is simple and decisive. The Soviet Union collapsed into dust in 1989 and yet the growth of the United States (the federal apparatus) continued without pause, justified by new and ever-more inventive foreign-policy pretexts.)

Projecting forward, assuming everything goes on as it has gone, and the United States executive branch becomes ruler of the world. Enormous power-- nominally only in the sphere of external affairs, as now, but leading to equally enormous corruption and aggrandizement and militarism, along with all the attendant evils that these impose domestically.

Is it not clear that this is a bad thing? The ruler of the world does what it wishes, and laws don't stop it. Its power and influence erodes courage and honor in all others, including the Congress and courts which are meant to keep it in check and bound down to the Constitution. All others in various positions of authority become its sycophants. Individual liberty is soon a fading memory, as is the protection of the law.

Not a pretty picture. Also, not a picture too far out of focus to today's discerning eye.

SO, WHAT CAN KEEP THIS DYSTOPIA from being everyone's future? Well, the best solution is the Founders' most relied-upon Constitutional-enforcement mechanism-- individual regulation of the resources by which those in control of the state apparatus can seek to fulfill their lusts for power.

But at the same time (or in the meantime) the presence of a countervailing foreign power on the world stage-- not a superior one, mind you, but just one strong enough to prompt an overall civility of character rather than arrogance-- might not be amiss. Russia is not only the sole candidate that could fit this bill, but it is a good candidate overall.

Notwithstanding state propaganda to the contrary intended to justify the accretion of ever-more power to the executive, Russia is not at all aggressive. It hasn't been for nearly thirty years.

Further, whether we deliberately show it the respect this proposal would require or not, Russia is, in fact, armed with more than 7,000 nuclear weapons, along with a big supply of biological weapons, chemical weapons and a big military apparatus. We have no choice but to either respect it out of prudence or do so out of necessity, and might as well make the good-neighbor choice rather than the crabbed one of paranoid hostility.

At the same time, America is similarly armed for bear (no pun intended). We do not need to suppress or oppress our neighbors (so to speak) in order to be secure from the only kind of threats at which such suppression or oppression are aimed. We don't need to encircle Russia with bases or alliances, or bump it aggressively every time we pass in the hallways, in order to be very sure it will not attack us.

In short, we have nothing to lose by a good-neighbor policy toward Russia. And as Americans who will otherwise find ourselves the ever-more enserfed subjects of a a lumbering behemoth of a government whose girth spills over from its center of growth in foreign lands onto these fruited plains, we instead have a great deal to lose by a "bad-neighbor" policy of eroding Russia's utility as a counterweight to that behemoth.

NOW, OF COURSE I'M JUST SPITBALLIN' here. And I'm sure that some will be unable to accommodate any world-view in which the dominance of Washington, DC's denizens over all else is not seen as the naturally most desirable state of affairs.

But let me remind those folks that what I'm proposing here is nothing more than what George Washington advised America in his farewell address:

"...nothing is more essential, than that permanent, inveterate antipathies against particular Nations, and passionate attachments for others, should be excluded; and that, in place of them, just and amicable feelings towards all should be cultivated. The Nation, which indulges towards another an habitual hatred, or an habitual fondness, is in some degree a slave. It is a slave to its animosity or to its affection, either of which is sufficient to lead it astray from its duty and its interest. Antipathy in one nation against another disposes each more readily to offer insult and injury, to lay hold of slight causes of umbrage, and to be haughty and intractable, when accidental or trifling occasions of dispute occur. Hence frequent collisions, obstinate, envenomed, and bloody contests. The Nation, prompted by ill-will and resentment, sometimes impels to war the Government, contrary to the best calculations of policy. The Government sometimes participates in the national propensity, and adopts through passion what reason would reject; at other times, it makes the animosity of the nation subservient to projects of hostility instigated by pride, ambition, and other sinister and pernicious motives. The peace often, sometimes perhaps the liberty, of Nations has been the victim."

Thomas Jefferson advised us to the same effect in his first inaugural address, counseling honest friendship with all nations, entangling alliances with none.

John Quincy Adams, in his July 4, 1821 address on foreign policy, put it most plainly (and poetically):

"America, with the same voice which spoke herself into existence as a nation, proclaimed to mankind the inextinguishable rights of human nature, and the only lawful foundations of government. America, in the assembly of nations, since her admission among them, has invariably, though often fruitlessly, held forth to them the hand of honest friendship, of equal freedom, of generous reciprocity. She has uniformly spoken among them, though often to heedless and often to disdainful ears, the language of equal liberty, equal justice, and equal rights. She has, in the lapse of nearly half a century, without a single exception, respected the independence of other nations, while asserting and maintaining her own. She has abstained from interference in the concerns of others, even when the conflict has been for principles to which she clings, as to the last vital drop that visits the heart. She has seen that probably for centuries to come, all the contests of that Aceldama, the European World, will be contests between inveterate power, and emerging right.

"Wherever the standard of freedom and independence has been or shall be unfurled, there will her heart, her benedictions and her prayers be. But she goes not abroad in search of monsters to destroy. She is the well-wisher to the freedom and independence of all. She is the champion and vindicator only of her own. She will recommend the general cause, by the countenance of her voice, and the benignant sympathy of her example.

"She well knows that by once enlisting under other banners than her own, were they even the banners of foreign independence, she would involve herself, beyond the power of extrication, in all the wars of interest and intrigue, of individual avarice, envy, and ambition, which assume the colors and usurp the standard of freedom. The fundamental maxims of her policy would insensibly change from liberty to force. The frontlet upon her brows would no longer beam with the ineffable splendor of freedom and independence; but in its stead would soon be substituted an imperial diadem, flashing in false and tarnished lustre the murky radiance of dominion and power. She might become the dictatress of the world: she would be no longer the ruler of her own spirit."

And in his 1960 farewell address, Dwight D. Eisenhower, a president who knew just what was going on in exactly the particular policy question of which I speak today, warned us,

"Th[e] conjunction of an immense military establishment and a large arms industry is new in the American experience. The total influence – economic, political, even spiritual – is felt in every city, every Statehouse, every office of the Federal government. We recognize the imperative need for this development. Yet we must not fail to comprehend its grave implications. Our toil, resources and livelihood are all involved; so is the very structure of our society.

"In the councils of government, we must guard against the acquisition of unwarranted influence, whether sought or unsought, by the military-industrial complex. The potential for the disastrous rise of misplaced power exists and will persist."

We'd be in pretty good company adopting a policy of simple, honest friendship with Russia, and the less arrogant demeanor that such a policy would impose on the United States.

Something to think about, that's all.

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.

An Excellent New Video About The Government Effort To Suppress CtC Has Hit YouTube!

DEREK CUSHMAN HAS POSTED a powerful presentation on government lies, propaganda and misinformation about CtC designed to discourage more Americans from reading the book and getting free of the misadministration of the tax:

You can also find this film on YouTube at hhttps://youtu.be/V3_MViZDvo0 and on Vimeo at https://vimeo.com/175424277.

Watch it and share it, folks. This film will help a lot of people who have been taken in by the lies understand how they've been manipulated, and prompt a proper desire to learn the truth about the tax.

Well done, Derek!

P.S. If there were a thousand videos out there debunking government lies and encouraging Americans to learn the truth like this one does, the "ignorance tax" scheme would collapse in a month. So, where's yours?

Please share this info with others in your own address book so it gets around-- obviously those suffering the ill effects of this defect in Comodo won't be able to see it here themselves until they go into their firewall settings and manually whitelist losthorizons.com.

ALSO!!! Please go to the trouble of sharing the email you got alerting you to this new newsletter posting with as many people as possible.

Over the course of time the ISP I use (Yahoo) is periodically put on "spam" blacklists. If I do a sending of newsletter announcements during such an interval, my address can get tagged that way, too, and my email can then end up disappearing into spam folders in the email systems of what are actually newsletter subscribers. Unless told to look for them and whitelist mail from @losthorizons.com, some of these folks won't ever know that this has happened.

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."

-Mohandas Gandhi

A New Policy

II 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, because...

Right now, having just been forced to deliver my beloved bride to a prison camp, I'm bleeding pretty heavily. And yet, when I have asked all of you for what I firmly believe is a necessary resource to move the ball downfield and give my darling wife (and all the rest 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, even despite my having been asking you for them for many years now (I renewed my entreaties as a front-page item just lately, in response to the media skepticism over what has been done to Doreen, but I first posted my request for these something along the lines of eight years ago...).

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 do so. 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.

STARTING TODAY, SELECTED PAGES CONSTITUTING primarily "legal resources" pages will 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 spreading the word, and your beautiful faces and inspiring words, too. It IS a lot.

But I'll let Frederick Douglas explain:

"Those who profess to favor freedom and yet depreciate agitation…want crops without plowing up the ground, they want rain without thunder and lightening. They want the ocean without the awful roar of its many waters…. Power concedes nothing without a demand. It never did and it never will."

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.

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.

"Those who will not reason, are bigots, those who cannot, are fools, and those who dare not, are slaves."
