"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….."

No one can guarantee success in all they do in life. But anyone can guarantee that they DESERVE success in anything they do.

So, Here We Are At "Declaration Day"...

A "wake-up" call for today's real American men and women.

DECLARATION DAY.

That is,

  • "NO MORE PARALYSIS Day"

  • "NO MORE DENIAL Day"

  • "NO MORE, "I DON'T DARE..." Day"

  • "NO MORE, "THE BAD MEN WILL NOTICE ME SO I'D BETTER NOT!" Day"

  • "NO MORE, "I'LL WAIT FOR SOMEONE ELSE TO GO FIRST..." Day"

In short, here we are at,

  • "GET OFF YOUR ASS Day"

  • "GET LOUD AND PROUD AND UN-COWED Day"

I'm talking about,

  • "DON'T STOP 'TIL YOU'VE GOT LIBERTY AND THE RULE OF LAW Day"

  • "FACE THE FACTS Day"

  • "NO TIME TO RELAX Day"...

MORE THAN ANYTHING, here we are at "PUT ASIDE DELUSIONS Day" That's what the original "Declaration day" was all about. It was the day the American colonists finally acknowledged that the people they had been entreating to respect their rights actually didn't want them to have their rights.

It was the day the American colonists finally acknowledged that the government operatives they had been petitioning and politicking and lobbying and arguing with weren't misled or mistaken or suffering from misunderstanding, needing only to have things explained a bit better, or argued a bit more authoritatively. Instead, as the colonists realized and finally admitted by way of the Declaration, those operatives were their competitors. Those operatives were the colonists' opponents. Efforts to persuade them were pointless-- they admitted to no limits on their power and had no interest in curbing its abuse, which was being practiced for their benefit.

IT WAS HARD for the colonists to reach that epiphany about their government. Because states exercise power (and partly also because they maintain an elaborate apologia dedicated to justifying that exercise as being for the good of the citizenry, or at least the way things must or are supposed to be), they come to be viewed as virtual parents in the hind-brains of those subject to that power. It is very hard for people to recognize and acknowledge that actual Mom and Dad are bad people. It is nearly as hard for people to recognize that the state under the influence of which they have been raised is corrupt and malicious.

But of course, sometimes Mom and Dad are indeed bad, and states usually are. And while Mom and Dad can and often do become remorseful, and proceed to reform and redemption, states are institutionally-incapable of remorse. The only remedy against a bad state is taking away its power. Eventually, after wasting all that time and effort on petitioning, politicking, lobbying and arguing, the American colonists admitted this truth on Declaration Day and said, "No more talking-- it's time for walking!"

Bless them for abandoning their child-like view of the state and becoming grown-ups at last.

IT REMAINS TO BE SEEN if we modern Americans are equally deserving of blessings. We should be up to the task; after all, we have a much easier row to hoe than the colonists did.

While we, too, must adopt a grown-up understanding of the true character of the dangerous servant against which we have been wisely warned, our state is already bound down by the written law, thanks to the blood and sacrifices of our ancestors. All we have to do is recognize that the state is constantly struggling to escape any limitations placed upon it by that law, and to suppress and marginalize anyone revealing its bad behavior and anything showing how it can be put back into its chains.

Particularly, we have to recognize that the biggest and most important limitation put upon the state concerns its ability to take resources from individual citizens for its own use. It's this simple-- the one who controls the disposition of property is the one in charge.

Because it is so important, for decades the United States has been engaged in the cultivation and exploitation of myths about what limitations are placed upon it in regard to resource acquisition. Sadly, for most of those decades most Americans have fallen for the fictions.

Chief among these state-serving, people-harming myths is the truly absurd proposition that our grandparents amended the Constitution in 1913 to authorize the state's exploitation of their resources at its will, in defiance and rejection of the previous tax-limiting Constitutional rules under which the American people had become the freest and most prosperous in the history of the world.

THIS IS A MYTH! It never happened, and even the premier organs of the state itself have said so endlessly-- but quietly, so as to preserve the on-the-books harmony of the law while allowing the state (and its clients and cronies) to ruthlessly exploit anyone who doesn't know to look and remains in ignorance.

See the proof that this is a myth at losthorizons.com/The16th.htm. Read the 1916 Cornell and Harvard Law Review articles on the Supreme Court's unanimous conclusions about the Sixteenth Amendment. See what Department of Treasury experts admit about the income tax. See what the Supreme Court continues to say about the amendment and the tax over the decades. Learn the real history of the tax and its antecedents.

See what the tax really falls upon and how it really works in application (and how and why it may have been misapplied to you in the past). See what those who have learned the long-obscured truth about the income tax have been accomplishing since that truth was revealed in 2003.

Then go here and see how the state has been struggling to keep you from knowing any of this.

After you take these two enlightening little excursions, recognize that every single person or institution that would lose prestige, power or profits by acknowledging the truth about the tax can be expected to lie about the subject if queried, as will every interest that sees itself benefitting from the existence of a mammoth state (which might even include those who make their living complaining about the mammoth state, or the supposed evils of the income tax). Every one of these are today's equivalents of the invested promoters and defenders of the "divine right of kings" myth that kept people enthralled and exploited in the colonists' time.

But also recognize that now knowing the truth, the power is in your hands. The responsibility is, too.

Rise to deserve the blessings of posterity.

Make this year's "Declaration Day" real by making it a personal Declaration Day-- a day of resolution to act on behalf of liberty and the rule of law.

"Like a muddied stream or a polluted fountain is the righteous man who gives way before the wicked."

-Proverbs 25:26

 

"I am only one, but I am one. I cannot do everything, but I can do something. What I can do, I should do and, with the help of God, I will do."

-Everett Hale

 

"Power concedes nothing without a demand. It never did and it never will. Find out just what any people will quietly submit to and you have the exact measure of the injustice and wrong which will be imposed on them, and these will continue till they have been resisted with either words or blows, or with both. The limits of tyrants are prescribed by the endurance of those whom they suppress."

Real Victories To Celebrate On Declaration Day!

True American heroes strengthen our shared rule of law as we all renew our resolution to the principles of the Founders' liberty Revolution.

TODAY (July 2) BEING THE ACTUAL DECLARATION RATIFICATION DATE, and the Fourth of July on which we celebrate the Declaration of Independence being this week as well, I'm very happy to share the great victories linked below. These concrete expressions of dedication to the Founders' plan for America are the only fireworks going off in the country today which accurately symbolize what we're supposed to memorialize and honor at this time each year.

The Lost Horizons Bulletin Board

THE LONG STACK OF LINKS BELOW connect to more than a thousand examples of the hundreds of thousands of complete income tax refunds and zero liability admissions being continuously secured from the federal and 38 state and local governments since 2003 by readers of 'Cracking the Code- The Fascinating Truth About Taxation In America'-- Social security and Medicare taxes included. These victories for the rule of law range in size from the very small to well over $100K.

As you'll see in the documentation at the bottom of this page, every one of these refunds has been thoroughly vetted by the government before being issued, and all have issued even while the government has striven mightily to suppress the knowledge of the law by which these claims are made.

CLICK ON ANY LINK to visit the page on which you'll find the announced victory of the liberating truth over state-encouraged misunderstanding. There are typically twenty or more posted on each page, so you may have to scroll to find the one you're looking for.

Watch for links in any text associated with a check or notice-- many of these victors have provided their complete filing for posting, as well. About two thirds of the way down this list you will find audio and video testimonials from a few of these good folks, as well.

THE HONOR ROLL

Real victories for the rule of law and the restoration of the Constitutionally-limited republic by real American grown-ups who know that if you're not standing up, then you're standing down.

EACH OF THE WONDERFUL VICTORIES at which you have just looked, and each of the hundreds of thousands of others of which they are examples, constitutes another critical step toward the restoration of the Founders republic and the true rule of law.

In the aggregate, these victories are also incontrovertible proof that CtC really and truly has revealed a long-running government scheme to systematically misapply the benign and thoroughly-limited income tax-- from which anyone who wishes it can be freed-- and that anyone who disputes this fact, no matter who or what they may be, is a moron, or a liar, or both.

BTW: Don't you wish your victories were proudly posted, too?!

It's easy. Stand up on behalf of the law, and then share the evidence.

That's all there is to it!

Donald Trump Has Handed The CtC Community A HUGE Opportunity

However, urgent immediate action is required. Please don't let this gift slip away, people!!!

ON TUESDAY, JULY 3, Donald Trump leaked his "short list" of nominees to replace retiring justice Anthony Kennedy. On the list is Raymond Kethledge, who is distinguished from the rest of the pack by having revealed himself on paper as an oath-breaker and a clever, committed enemy of the Constitution.

In March of 2016, Kethledge spat squarely on the First Amendment-secured right to freedom of speech and the Fifth Amendment-secured right to due process. Kethledge did this by affirming, with the most corrupt and contorted rationalizations, Doreen Hendrickson's engineered conviction on an unprecedented charge of criminal contempt of court for refusing to make court-ordered sworn declarations that she believes in the truth of government-dictated, government-serving, false testimony.

KETHLEDGE'S RULING IN DOREEN'S APPEAL was obviously in defiance of what may be the most well-settled law in American jurisprudential history. Just in the last five weeks alone, the Supreme Court has twice held squarely wrong what Kethledge contrived to approve in a lickspittle service to the "ignorance tax" scheme that Doreen's husband has laid bare and is steadily disintegrating into a dust-heap, with the help of tens of thousands of brave, law-respecting activists across the country.

For instance, in the ruling last month in Masterpiece Cake Shop, Justice Thomas says,

“[O]ne important manifestation of the principle of free speech is that one who chooses to speak may also decide ‘what not to say’ ” and “tailor” the content of his message as he sees fit. Id., at 573 (quoting Pacific Gas & Elec. Co. v. Public Util. Comm’n of Cal. , 475 U. S. 1, 16 (1986) (plurality opinion)). This rule “applies not only to expressions of value, opinion, or endorsement, but equally to statements of fact the speaker would rather avoid.” Hurley, supra, at 573. And it “makes no difference” whether the government is regulating the “creati[on], distributi[on], or consum[ption]” of the speech. Brown v. Entertainment Merchants Assn. , 564 U. S. 786, 792, n. 1 (2011).

...

The Colorado Court of Appeals also erred by suggesting that Phillips could simply post a disclaimer, disassociating Masterpiece from any support for same-sex marriage. Again, this argument would justify any law compelling speech. And again, this Court has rejected it. We have described similar arguments as “beg[ging] the core question.” Tornillo, supra, at 256. Because the government cannot compel speech, it also cannot “require speakers to affirm in one breath that which they deny in the next.” Pacific Gas & Elec., 475 U. S., at 16; see also id. at 15, n. 11 (citing PruneYard, 447 U. S., at 99 (Powell, J., concurring in part and concurring in judgment)). States cannot put individuals to the choice of “be[ing] compelled to affirm someone else’s belief” or “be[ing] forced to speak when [they] would prefer to remain silent.” Id., at 99.

Masterpiece Cakeshop, Ltd. v. Colorado Civil Rights Comm’n, 584 U. S. ____ (2018) (Emphasis added.)

In the same month (that is, just two weeks ago), the Supreme Court again states this endlessly-upheld black-letter law:

The California Legislature included in its official history the congratulatory statement that the Act was part of California’s legacy of “forward thinking.”App. 38–39.But it is not forward thinking to force individuals to “be an instrument for fostering public adherence to an ideological point of view [they] fin[d] unacceptable.” Wooley v. Maynard , 430 U. S. 705, 715 (1977). It is forward thinking to begin by reading the First Amendment as ratified in 1791; to understand the history of authoritarian government as the Founders then knew it; to confirm that history since then shows how relentless authoritarian regimes are in their attempts to stifle free speech; and to carry those lessons onward as we seek to preserve and teach the necessity of freedom of speech for the generations to come. Governments must not be allowed to force persons to express a message contrary to their deepest convictions. Freedom of speech secures freedom of thought and belief.

National Institute Of Family And Life Advocates, dba Nifla, et al. V. Becerra, Attorney General Of California, et al, No. 16-1140 (2018) (Concurring opinion) (Emphasis added.)

Not only does Kethledge display contempt for speech rights and due process, but he is willing to make utterly absurd arguments in defiance of Congress, as well. Unable to defend the orders made to Doreen as lawful, Kethledge simply rules that the lawfulness of an order is not relevant to a contempt charge, even though Congress plainly says otherwise:

A court of the United States shall have power to punish by fine or imprisonment, or both, at its discretion, such contempt of its authority, and none other, as--

(3) Disobedience or resistance to its lawful writ, process, order, rule, decree, or command.

18 U.S.C. 401(3) (Emphasis added.)

Despite the unmistakable language of the statute (and directly contrary rulings of his own circuit), Kethledge says that "lawful" is not an element in a contempt charge. He rules that someone can be convicted of this charge even for resisting an unlawful order, that "lawfulness" needn't be proven, and that a jury instruction reading: "It is not a defense to the crime of contempt that the court order that the defendant is accused of violating was unlawful or unconstitutional." is valid.

You can read a detailed discussion of these corrupt acts, and their legal and practical effects and implications, here. A link will also be found there to the petition to the Supreme Court concerning Kethledge's ruling in which his contempt for the settled law is spelled out.

Frankly, no one in his or her right mind would want this creature as judge of a potato-sack race, much less on the US Supreme Court for the rest of his life.

SO, WHY IS CONSIDERATION OF RAYMOND KETHLEDGE for the Supreme Court a gift to the CtC community? It's simple.

Interest in the contest for the next Supreme Court justice is intense and universal. EVERYONE takes an interest. EVERYONE will be interested in anything aired about any nominee or "short list" candidate.

Because wide swathes of the American public will be interested in whatever is revealed about Kethledge, wide swathes of Americans who would never learn the truth about the income tax (due to not knowing that there is actually something to learn) will expose themselves to it anyway. They will do so in the course of taking in Kethledge's defilement of his office and his contempt for the First and Fifth Amendments and for Congress (not to mention for the most rudimentary principles of justice and government limited by law).

IN SHORT, by putting Raymond Kethledge on his "short list", Donald Trump has provided us with a unique, very-narrow-window opportunity. It is an opportunity to introduce a whole lot of otherwise unreachable people to the liberating truth about the income tax revealed in CtC.

Trump has also provided the American people with a very rare opportunity to punish a completely corrupt federal judge. This is something a lot of folks completely outside the CtC community have dreamt about for decades, every one of whom will enthusiastically magnify our own efforts to put Kethledge's crimes-- and the CtC truth they were committed to suppress-- on the front page.

HERE IS WHAT NEEDS TO BE DONE, and needs to be done RIGHT AWAY: Tweet, Gab, Facebook and forum post incessantly, creatively and passionately directing people to http://losthorizons.com/A/MurderInCincinnati.htm. For variety, direct people to http://losthorizons.com/DoreenFlyer.pdf. Download to your own device the images here, here, here, here and here and use them to illustrate your tweets, gabs and posts.

Re-tweet, re-post, "like" and share all my posts on this subject. Do the same for everyone else's.

Flog everyone you know in the community into action. Don't imagine that they will have seen this post. Sadly, many in the CtC community are very remiss about reading newsletter posts-- even special ones like this. I probably can't reach them. You maybe can, and need to do so RIGHT AWAY, with the sense of urgency and enthusiasm for the opportunity which I am attempting to communicate to you here.

Keep efforts to explain what was done by Kethledge (or to Doreen, or why) to a minimum-- let my posts do that. Your job is to get people to those posts.

BE A DAMN HURRICANE until Kethledge is dropped from consideration. The window in which we can make use of this unique opportunity won't last past that point, and its like may never come again. This community must seize this opportunity with both hands, and our teeth, as well.

Those who don't dig in at times like this don't deserve to win.

A Pair Of Old And Useful Windows On Current Events In The Middle East

Reaching into the past for information thwarts the agenda of present-day "fake news" mongers.

IT HAS ALWAYS BEEN MY EXPERIENCE that one of the best ways to shield oneself from the effects of propaganda is to look to sources of information from before an issue became someone's cause, or before the spin war began, or became sophisticated, or became self-referential and self-sustaining. Early information is unspun and far more likely to be accurate.

In that vein, I would like to share two older documents regarding places and people in the Middle East, in the hope that they might help support clear thinking about the present-day situation insulated from what has long been a ferocious disinformation campaign attempting to gain control over the future by exercising control over what people are to believe true about the past. What value these docs may have will be up to each reader.

THE FIRST DOCUMENT I'M OFFERING is a transcription I have done of an excerpt from a Geography text by the prolific, very widely-read and very well-respected historian journalist and polymath Hendrik Willem van Loon written in 1932 and describing the population distribution and general demographic character of what was then Palestine and is now Israel. Find it here.

The other doc presenting an historical perspective on the same subject is a declassified CIA "Information Report" on Israel and the Arab states from March 18, 1949. I downloaded the report in 2008, but, interestingly, have been unable to find it on the CIA website during revisits in more recent years.

The quality of the doc, which is apparently a scan of an ancient type-written report, is abysmal. Nonetheless, it can be made out with some effort.

The document contains interesting revelations about very early events after the 1948 violation by Jewish settlers of the United Nations Partition Plan for Palestine which had been designed pursuant to Great Britain's 1917 Balfour Declaration concerning the establishment of a national home for the Jewish people in a part thereof (which contained the specification that "nothing shall be done which may prejudice the civil and religious rights of existing non-Jewish communities"). They are worth the trouble. Find that report here.

FINALLY, I HAVE LONG ENCOURAGED the reading of a very well-written and comprehensive history of 20th-Century Middle-East events written for the Cato Institute by Sheldon Richman (a man as sound on this subject as he is unsound on the subject of the income tax) which can be found here. I recommend it again, after the other two documents have been taken in.

Students of the subject might also be interested in the comments here and here.

"Section 83" Nonsense

*****

The Entire Legal And Practical Truth About The Income Tax In Three Short Sentences

Focus on these simple points and you can teach anyone the truth about the tax.

1. The income tax is an excise.

2. Excise taxes are taxes on the gainful exercise of privileges.

3. You probably didn't earn your money by exercising any taxable privilege (or earned very little that way).

Inarguable (and nowhere disputed) proof of the first two statements above can be found concisely spelled-out in this little 7-page document. Whether the third is true for any particular person can be determined by consulting this guide to understanding "income-taxable privilege".

WHAT'S LEFT IS MERELY THAT many American governments-- which are compelled to acknowledge the three facts above when invoked by someone who has read this book and therefore knows how to do so, as indisputably proven here, here and here-- don't want American citizens to know these three facts, or how to invoke them. This is proven here and here.

And that's the whole of the rubber-hitting-the-road legal and practical truth about the tax! All that's left out is how to put this information into effect against the scheme that has exploited widespread ignorance about it for the last 80 years. For that, direct your student to CtC.

The Smiling and Earnest Afterword

FOLKS, WHAT I'VE JUST SAID HERE is, of course, merely another rendering of what I have taught many times in many ways. YOU REALLY SHOULD ALL BE TEACHING IT, TOO! This stuff isn't hard, and the authorities invoked in demonstrating its accuracy and truth are readily-available for verification and are indisputable.

Teach it to everyone you know. If they pooh-pooh it that's fine. You will have planted a seed. Walk away with a smile and try again with the next person. Some soil is immediately fertile, some needs time to soften up before the seed works its way in and takes root.

AT THE SAME TIME that you teach those you know personally, send this short, 7-page brief to every lawyer, law professor, and law student that whose contact information you can find. Send it to every CPA you can find, and every judge, every tax agency worker and every HR department worker.

Send this article to every journalist, reporter, editor and pundit you can reach.

Never forget that these are all Americans, too, just like you. They are just ignorant, not stupid, and for the most part, not evil, either. Some of them will look and learn.

The NOT-Smiling But Still Very Earnest Afterword

ONE OTHER THING NEEDS TO BE SAID. The obvious implication of the historical and legal FACTS (not theories) presented above is that should anyone acting in conflict with these facts-- be it a revenue department worker, a government attorney, a legislator, a judge or a tax-return filer-- that person would be committing a crime.

To construe (or administer) the tax in any way contrary to what is presented above is to participate in the imposition of an unapportioned capitation. Unapportioned capitations are expressly prohibited by the Constitution.

Thus, the crimes committed by anyone construing or administering, or enabling the construction or administration of the income tax in any way contrary to what is presented above are not only statutory violations of one kind or another. In every case these crimes amount to subversion of the Constitution, as well.

Such crimes are not academic. This isn't a game, and what's going when the income tax is misconstrued or mis-administered isn't the reflection of a mere disagreement.

Misconstruction and mis-adminstration of the income tax, in defiance and subversion of the Constitutional prohibition on unapportioned capitations, is a coup being attempted against the American people. It's serious as a heart attack, and should be taken that way.

"As nightfall does not come at once, neither does oppression. In both instances, there's a twilight where everything remains seemingly unchanged, and it is in such twilight that we must be aware of change in the air, however slight, lest we become unwitting victims of the darkness."/p>

"Tax Honesty" BS Is What Had Doreen In Prison

...just as much as does official corruption.

IN MID-SPRING I wrote about "Judge Anna" And Bat-Sh*t Crazy "Birth Certificate" Drivel. In a subsequent newsletter I had need to post an article about a seemingly viral infection of the community based on nonsense about HR1, more distribution of which continues despite my debunk.

Over the years I have posted dozens of debunks of dozens of similar packages of nonsense, as can be seen here. These debunks are thorough and dispositive. Continued promotion of any of them can only be seen as the deliberate sowing of disinformation and discord.

These endless injections of distracting and misleading gibberish (whether obvious gibberish or subtler gibberish that actually gives a surface impression of harmonizing with, or even supplementing the truth about the tax) serve-- either deliberately or mindlessly-- to keep the community out of focus and disunited in purpose. Thus, this community is rendered a blunt instrument at best, where a razor-sharp stake for the vampire's breast is needed.

Thus, the weight brought to bear on that stake, whatever the condition of its point, is light when it ought to be-- and needs to be-- crushingly heavy.

IN LIGHT OF ALL THAT I want to say something really brief and really heart-felt: Just as much as the corruption of certain despicable government "officials", my beloved bride suffered imprisonment in 2015, 2016 and 2018 because of the promoters and purveyors of the kind of horseshit of which I speak.

If not for those dis-unifying distractions, the truth about the tax-- fifteen years now in circulation and with an endless mountain of evidence and authority behind it-- would have won the day over the "ignorance tax" schemers long ago. We would likely even have restored the republic overall, by now.

Either way, it is beyond question that in an America in which the truth revealed in CtC were as widely known as it would be without these hindering distractions, no federal court could have accomplished the crimes needed to put my Doreen in prison.

Nor would anybody else be facing any resistance or official misbehavior in regard to the tax, for that matter.

SO, HERE IT IS, BALDLY, as I feel compelled to say it today: Are you a purveyor of supposed income-tax-relevant material that does not appear in my work? Then you are a purveyor of poison, and you are my enemy.

Now, THIS Is What I'm NOT Talking About!!

A simple way for everyone to get a lot done, fast, that no one is doing.

SO, MONTHS AGO I posted the following on this page (and it has remained here ever since):

IF EVERY STATE GROUP (or anyone else) were to devote some time and effort to scheduling and hosting presentations of this video to CPA and legal firms, a whole lot of good could be done in a very short order.

The requirements are simple. Book an hour with the chosen firm, with the understanding that all professional staff will be assembled for the presentation. A thoughtful introduction should make this inexpensive and easy.

Explain that all you are asking for is an opportunity to show a video in which some facts about the income tax are revealed on the basis of which tens of thousands of Americans have recovered $billions from the IRS and three dozen state tax agencies over the course of more than 14 years now, by way of a quarter of a million claims made with the tax agencies, and even in the face of agency resistance of several different kinds.

SOME FIRMS MAY SHOO YOU AWAY, certainly. But some will not.

Arrive at the appointed hour in a group, dressed business casual or better and groomed for church. Have your most articulate, persuasive speaker take the lead, but all be alert and attentive, sending out a calm, confident and positive vibe.

Understand and communicate with your demeanor that you are not there to debate anything. Rather, you are there to show these folks things they don't know, and need to know.

Bring a big monitor, speakers and a laptop with which you can access the video. Rehearse and be able to make your connections and be up and running in moments with no fuss.

Play the video. Hand out printed copies of this document to everyone in attendance. Thank your audience for their time and attention, and take your leave.

When out of sight, clap each other on the back for an important job well done and head out for your next appointment (or to a nice group meal to celebrate, compare notes and plan your next activist outing).

NOW, I DON'T THINK ANYONE CAN SAY that this program is too difficult. And I can't imagine that anyone would argue that there is no chance of some serious good being done if any given individual or group in a "tax profession" saw that video and read that document.

But I haven't heard from ONE person that has undertaken to do this.

II hear from all of you all the time telling me about how hard it is to get through to the people you try to introduce to CtC's liberating, republic-restoring revelations. So I go to the trouble of writing wake-up paper after wake-up paper.

I even do a power-point of a seriously-revealing, seriously comprehensive but still short and accessible compilation and arrange to be filmed presenting it, so that YOU will have it as a tool for the kind of activism I explain in the simplest, most "Insert tab "A" into slot "B"..." fashion. And what happens?

Nothing.

It's a shame. You can't score the goal if you don't take the shot, my friends.

A Wise Warrior On What's Really At Stake

*****

DON DON LA VIGNE, a long-time warrior and real American grown-up, shares a nice and inspiring testimonial on what CtC has done for him for over nine years now:

"Like a muddied stream or a polluted fountain is the righteous man who gives way before the wicked."

See Who's Really Been Lying About The Tax

*****

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 historical, legal, practical and logical evidence to the contrary? (Not to mention the outright lies and even ludicrous hoaxes the executive and some corrupt members of the judiciary have been caught at in desperate efforts to conceal the truth...)

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 definitely 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 are discussed here, here, here and here).

These folks effectively serve as weight on the deniers' side of the scale-- and also finance the Beast-- because I haven't been able to get my videos or other liberation information to them. I'm talking about your Uncle Jerry (or Aunt Sally, or Junior, or your buddy Sam, or whoever).

I haven't been able to get my liberating information to these folks because I DON'T KNOW THEM. I have no contact info, and I wouldn't know the best way to speak to them, even if I did.

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. In 2016 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 aIn 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.

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 https://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?

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.

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 Don La Vigne shares his testimony here. Tom Romin shares his testimony here. Greg Sutton shares his here. Enjoy Robert Harvey's testimony here. Don'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.

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.

Dress "business casual". Be well-groomed.

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.

"It does not take a majority to prevail... but rather an irate, tireless minority, keen on setting brushfires of freedom in the minds of men."

The Crime of the Misapplied Income Tax

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.
