"There are two distinct classes of men...those who pay taxes and those who receive and live upon taxes."

- Thomas Paine

C'mon! CtC can't be right! You're crazy!

If CtC were actually right,

it would mean the government's been concealing and denying the truth for years on end,

and everybody knows THAT would never happen...

(Edward Snowden, come home! It was all just a bad dream; there really is No Such Agency!)

 

 

Do you know someone truly steeped in the Kool-Aid?

 

 I mean someone who finds it easier to believe that the far-better-educated, far-more-suspicious-of-government Americans of a hundred years ago were complete morons who granted authority to the state to take whatever it wished from themselves and their posterity than to imagine that they themselves simply misunderstand the true nature of the income tax? Even while knowing that their beliefs about the tax are derived entirely from the representations of those who profit from those beliefs (like tax bureaucrats and "tax professionals")?

 

Do you know someone like that? Shake them awake with the latest (fifteenth) edition of CtC!

A Great And Important Perspective On Voting

...and on how it feels to secure your claim to your own earnings.

BRANDON IS SO RIGHT, right? Action at the voting booth, proper though it surely is, isn't even close to enough.

We've all been through a lifetime of trying to rein in Leviathan at the voting booth only to see relentless growth in the beast and relentless diminishment of freedom and power for us. It is obvious that, whether from institutional corruption, the capture of the electoral process by one or a couple of symbiotic factions, or from some other reason, balloting is NOT going to restore the republic or secure our rights.

The only thing that is going to restore the republic is the action of concerned Americans who understand that we do NOT live in a democracy, and we do NOT have to resign ourselves to going to hell in whatever is today's most popular handcart (and destroying whoever or whatever unfortunately lies in our path as we do so). Instead, we are each under a duty-- to ourselves and our beloved country-- to disassociate ourselves from hell-bound handcarts.

CtC-EDUCATED AMERICANS are thus not content to simply elect a new captain and crew from among those promising new deck-chair arrangements on the titanic ship of state. That monstrous Leviathan of a ship, made up of millions of individual ships whose owners had been fooled into aggregation of their fortune and fate with those of the hive, is already steaming full speed ahead into a looming iceberg.

CtC-educated Americans are grown-ups. They have carefully studied the law of the sea. They know their rights (and doubtless some have noted the interesting coincidence that the historic Titanic hit the iceberg on... April 15).

Like Brandon, CtC-educated American men and women are disengaging their personal ships from the careening conglomerate to which they had let themselves be lashed and to the forward progress of which their own engine's output had been diverted. They are turning aside onto safer courses, while simultaneously bleeding the otherwise unstoppable behemoth of its destructive momentum.

And they do so with the approval of the law, thanks to the wisdom of the Founders and Framers who structured the United States Constitution so as to provide for just that remedy against just this kind of anticipated peril.

Well-spoken words, Brandon.

***

P. S. Here's how Yael Sauzedde expressed the same general thought a bit more whimsically about ten years ago when the iceberg was a bit further off:

***

P. P. S. SHARE ALL THIS WIDELY, people! You'll find there are a lot of folks out there for whom the tax issue per se may not be compelling, but for whom the disastrous course of the country-- and the fact they they have been unnecessarily financing its progress-- will mean a great deal indeed.

Anytime you encounter anyone complaining about United States behavior, either at home or abroad, ask them why, then, are they financing that behavior? Recognize each such moment as a teaching and activating opportunity.

NOTE: I'm running a little test. Please let me know if you see these words.

The Always Delightfully Sardonic John Prine Shares A Little Perspective

Illuminating anniversaries of this week:

October 16- In 1775, Portland, Maine is burned by the British.  In 1781, the Continental Army captures Yorktown, Virginia.  In 1793, Marie Antoinette is guillotined.  In 1875, Brigham Young University is founded in Provo, Utah.  In 1964, China conducts its first successful nuclear weapon test.  In 1969, George Hennard entered a restaurant in Luby, Texas, and killed 23 patrons and wounded another 20 before committing suicide.  The incident led to the adoption by the Texas legislature of the "shall issue" principle in regard to CCW applications, a reversal of the policy blamed for the fact that no one in the restaurant but Hennard had a weapon that day.

It's Time To Share Some More Victories!

...which are the way actual American heroes actually take charge of their servant government.

IN THE BI-ANNUAL POLITICAL CIRCUS which culminates in the first week or so of every other November, those who desperately want no change whatever in the status quo earnestly urge Americans to embrace the delusion that the way to accomplish desperately-needed change in the status quo is by voting. This effort has been largely successful over the last eight decades, I'm sorry to say.

That 80 years of successful snookering coincides with the life of the "ignorance tax" scheme. This is no coincidence.

The "ignorance tax" fiction that Leviathan has authority to fund itself by the seizure of some (or all!) of everything earned by anyone in America (or even outside America if earned by an American)-- is designed to drive from American understanding the ACTUAL solution to a problematic Leviathan-related status-quo. That actual solution is the defunding of the oversized beast-- shrinking it to a size no larger than needed for its actual Constitutional functions-- by individual attention to self-interest in harmony with the Constitutional limitations on the federal power to tax.

HAPPILY, FIFTEEN YEARS AGO the "ignorance tax" scheme began to crumble with the publication of CtC. Since then tens of thousands of awakened Americans have been implementing the real solution to Leviathan, many of whom have been celebrated on these pages over the years. Here are a few more of these heroes, to whom it can really be said: "Thank you for your service!"

Carmen Parks

HERE IS CARMEN'S MOST RECENT victory on behalf of the rule of law-- a complete federal refund of what was withheld from her in 2015, after an IRS pretense of not having received her return back in 2016 and the re-filing of the same return two years later:

No interest paid on this belated refund, based, no doubt on the argument that the claim was only filed this past July... Here is Carmen's return (note the date) and here is her husband Ray's note explaining this unusual sequence of events.

Ken & Joyce Wells

KEN & JOYCE HAVE ALSO JUST RECEIVED A 2015 REFUND-- this one from the state of Oregon:

This refund DOES have interest included, since the state does not dispute its responsibility for the delay:

Unfortunately, though prompt in sending the scans above, Ken and Joyce have not yet sent scans of the associated docs (please, everyone-- read and take very seriously the posts at this link!).

Piotr & Stephanie

PIOTR & STEPHANIE SHARE TWO VICTORIES this week-- complete refunds from California and the feds of everything withheld in 2017:

Most of Piotr & Stephanie's economic activity involves credit-card transactions in which no withholding takes place, but meaning that part of their filing comprises rebuttal of a 1099-K, something we've not seen much of so far, and in which some other might take an interest. See the California filing here, and the federal filing here.

Derek Cushman

DEREK'S LATEST VICTORY IS A COMPLETE REFUND of everything withheld from him and given to the feds in 2017-- nearly every penny of which is withheld as Social Security and Medicare tax:

Derek's federal victory for 2017 also includes interest, because the feds spent a bit of time verifying Derek's claim with this identity challenge before issuing the complete refund.

SO, WELL DONE, Carmen, Ken & Joyce, Piotr & Stephanie and Derek!

GOTTA LOVE ALL THESE HEROES!! They are tuck-pointing the tattered brickwork in the rule of law on which we all rely to shield us from arbitrary power, and draining the swamp at the same time. Hats off to them all!!

And these good Americans are not alone, of course. Their victories join those of the tens of thousands of other awakened and activated Americans represented here. Each constitutes another critical step toward the restoration of the Founders republic and the true rule of law.

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!

***

NOTE: YOU can be among heroes like these, and get yourself sharpened up to the cutting edge of new developments in the battle of truth against pretenses and illusions, too. Be in Bakersfield, California this coming November 10!

Illuminating anniversaries of this week:

October 17- In 1781, British General Cornwallis offers his surrender to the Continental Army at Yorktown, Virginia.  In 1814, beer vats in a brewery in London, England, burst, flooding the streets with more than 323,000 gallons of beer.  There are nine casualties-- 8 by drowning, and one by alcohol poisoning.  In 1907, the first commercial transatlantic wireless service commences.  In 1931, Al Capone is convicted of "income" tax evasion.  In 1956, the first commercial nuclear power station opens in Cumbria, England.  In 1979, the U.S. Department of Education is created.

If you pay attention to the news and train yourself to apply these perspectives, you will see a dozen things of which you can make use in awakening other Americans to the virtues of having the income tax correctly administered. Please, for my sake, for your own sake, for the sake of your children and their future, make that use.

A VERY IMPORTANT NOTE FOR EVERYONE!!!

DUE TO CHRONIC AND ESCALATING interferences by ISPs (or others) which have made newsletter emails an extremely time-consuming and increasingly unreliable announcement mechanism, I have transitioned to alternative announcement methods. These include:

  • Twitter (click here to follow me and receive the announcement posts-- set for push notifications);

  • Facebook (click here to "like" the losthorizons page and receive the announcement posts);

  • GAB (click here to follow me and receive the announcement posts).

If you choose one of these social media options (or use them in addition to other means, as I wish you would), PLEASE get the full value out of them by diligently "liking" and "retweeting" or "sharing" or "reposting" my posts! That will significantly improve their visibility to others, and very much help the cause!!

  • My RSS feed:

(Members of the state CtC Warrior forums in AZ, CA, CO, FL, GA, IL, MI, MN, MO, NE, NY, NC, OH, OR, PA, SC, TX, UT, VA, WA or WI, will continue to get the regular announcements if the membership is set to receive email updates.)

NOTE: I will still not be engaging in correspondence by any of these alternative, social media means-- those wishing to correspond should continue to use email for this purpose.

NOTE II: PLEASE help ensure that others in the CtC community know about this change in newsletter delivery!!

The craziness of the neo-con nutcases in Washington is starting to generate its predictable blowback, but on a much more dangerous scale than in the recent past.

Based on relentless hostile rhetoric and steady efforts at military encirclement the Russian Federation Armed Forces Command has concluded that the United States intends to launch a pre-emptive nuclear attack on Russia. While this perception continues to be fed, the risk of a prophylactic Russian first strike exists and grows more perilous.

The persistent, recently-escalated, plainly unfounded and deliberately provocative saber-rattling against Iran-- a long-time close ally and buffer-state of Russia's, the destabilization or regime-change within which would be another substantial threat factor-- has magnified the intensity of the peril.

So, more than ever...

Regarding Trolleries

(Deceitful efforts to discourage Americans from learning the truth about the "income tax")

 

 

FFOR ALL THE YEARS SINCE 2003 when CtC was first published, the government has engaged in a concerted effort to frighten people away from its truths. This effort involves official government websites and press releases touting an occasional court ruling that appears to be at odds with some CtC-revelation (but without details sufficient to expose the real substance of the ruling)-- and sometimes even more mendacious behavior.

Are the presentations and resources offered on this site and in my other work of any value to you?

Tim Kendrick has posted a video on YouTube regarding donations. I didn't know what to do about it to begin with; I don't do what I do intending for anyone to feel obligated in any way.

But of course, no one IS obligated. I will continue to make my work freely-available here, and in my books for only the cost of a cheap paperback.

Thus, even though I post it here below, Tim's very thoughtful personal resolution and encouragement to others is just an invitation for consideration by those who may not be conscious of the fact that I can't do what I do without support. No one is to feel any pressure from it; if it moves anyone to act let it be solely because it seems right.

Why Does The Government Lie About 'Cracking the Code'?

This video can also be found on YouTube at https://youtu.be/hgzzYl-eeUI.

Here are links to the two pages to which viewers are directed at the end of the film: The Crime of the Century and The Truth About The 16th Amendment.

The other two mentioned in the film are this one (the "bulletin board" stack of 1,200 or so posted refunds and other victories in knowledgably applying the law; and this one (the collection of resisted claims and the outcomes of those little battles).

PLEASE be a real activist about sending this link to every single person in your address book, and about sharing it through facebook, reddit, twitter, and any other distribution channel with which you are familiar. Send it to every journalist you can. It's time to really make something happen.

Accompany your emails and posts with with a strong admonishment to watch the film through, and that doing so will show the viewer an individual-empowering, state-restraining truth about the income tax which the government has been trying to keep hidden from view for 75 years and which that person really needs to know. w.

BY THE WAY, as is impossible to miss, I have neither the skills nor the tools to make even moderately good films. This is simply not my forte. Anyone able to do better is encouraged to talk to me about that.

As is ALSO impossible to miss, though-- even in my amateur production-- reader video testimonials have GREAT POWER. Send me yours.

October 20- In 1803, the U.S. Senate ratifies the Louisiana Purchase.  In 1947, the House Un-American Activities Committee begins its investigation of communist infiltration of Hollywood.  In 1955, 'The Return Of The King', the last book in Tolkien's 'Lord Of The Rings' trilogy, is published.  In 1973, the "Saturday Night Massacre" takes place, with Richard Nixon firing Attorney General Elliot Richardson and Deputy Attorney General William Ruckelshaus after they refuse to fire Watergate prosecutor Archibald Cox, who is finally fired by Robert Bork.  In 2011, Moammar Ghaddafi was killed as part of a United States coup intended to thwart Chinese investments and development of oil interests in Libya, as well Ghaddafi's move toward eliminating the US dollar as the sole currency accepted for oil sales.

  

Are You Having Trouble Spreading The Word?

SKEPTICISM (SOMETIMES INVOKED BY FEAR) IS TO BE EXPECTED when you're trying to explain to someone that everything they've been encouraged their whole lives to believe about something as entrenched and significant as the income tax is basically nonsense. So here's a way to help cut through the resistance:

Ask your listener how he or she would react if you were to show an announcement from the Commissioner of Internal Revenue admitting that the tax doesn't apply to the earnings of most Americans and is misapplied most of the time because people don't understand how it works? Or how about if you showed a ruling from the Supreme Court saying the same?

Now you just have to explain that you're going to show exactly those things-- but because the state really doesn't want people to know this, these things haven't been said quite as forthrightly as we would all wish. It's going to take a bit more work to take these admissions in than is sufficient for just reading a press release. But it'll be worth the effort...

The Best Government Money Can Buy

by Philip Giraldi

Very few Americans know who Sheldon Adelson is and fewer still appreciate that, as America’s leading political donor, when he speaks the Republican Party listens. By virtue of his largesse, he has been able to direct GOP policy in the Middle East in favor of Israel, which might well be regarded as his true home while the United States exists more as a faithful friend that can be produced at intervals whenever Israel finds itself in need of a bit of cash or political cover.

Adelson’s recent successes in translating his political donations into policy favorable to Israel have included shifting the US Embassy to Jerusalem, cutting aid to Palestinians, ending the Iranian nuclear monitoring agreement and closing the Palestine Liberation Organization’s diplomatic office in Washington. All those Trump Administration measures were reportedly worked out privately by Adelson speaking directly with the president.

Adelson’s activities in buying politicians reflect what he believes, he reportedly having said that “there’s no such thing as a Palestinian.” Nor does his world view include much concern for the country that has sheltered him and made him wealthy. He served in the US Army in World War 2 and has said that he regrets having done so, as he would rather have worn an Israeli army uniform. He also expressed his desire that his son might become an Israeli Army sniper.

Adelson benefits from his exceptional access to the White House to the detriment of actual American interests. A New York Times article “Sheldon Adelson Sees a Lot to Like in Trump’s Washington,” states that he “enjoys a direct line to the president” and meets the president monthly “in private in-person meetings and phone conversations.” He has been delighted with the openly expressed threats emanating from the Administration’s key foreign and national security policy spokesmen regarding Iran. He would like to see the United States go to war with the Iranians to destroy their government and bring about some kind of regime change, and, judging from recent developments, he just might get what he seeks, which could easily have catastrophic consequences for the entire region and beyond.

I hope you read all of Giraldi's article. It's very good, as they so often are.

Understand that the political manipulation Giraldi discusses takes place because the United States (that is, the federal government apparatus) has lots of other people's money with which to finance favors in exchange for campaign contributions. See this for some drill-down on that ugly little dynamic.

The solution, of course, is simple: People have to act to remove the resources by which power is exercised in order to thwart the evil-- or merely venal-- ambitions of those exercising the power. People have to reclaim those resources for themselves in order to become capable of undoing what the ill-exercise of power has already put harmfully in place.

In short, We the People have to do as the Founders meant for us to do, and stop fueling Washington's bad behavior. We must make ourselves once again strong-- at its expense-- just as it has made itself strong at our expense over the last 80 years!

Aren't you REALLY, REALLY glad YOU'VE had the fortitude and clarity of vision to do that?

Now ask yourself this: Have I really done all that I can to urge everyone I know to also stand up and act in the only way that will really bring about change in my lifetime?

EVEN AS ARDENT A STATIST as Abraham Lincoln, in announcing his willingness to burn the Southern states to the ground in order to keep them paying the tariff for the benefit of Northern interests in his first inaugural address on March 4, 1861, paid at least lip service to the Founders design of leaving control over the fuel available to feed the fires Washington wants to light in the hands of the individual citizenry when he said, "Doing this I deem to be only a simple duty on my part; and I shall perform it, unless my rightful masters, the American people, shall withhold the requisite means..."

About The Author

Pete Hendrickson is possibly the most effective lawyer in history, even while never having set foot in a law school, nor ever being a card-carrying member of "the bar". He is the first American in history to secure a complete refund of Social Security and Medicare ‘contributions’ withheld from his earnings (along with all other property taken for federal taxes); further, since 2003 students of his legal analyses and arguments in ‘Cracking the Code- The Fascinating Truth About Taxation In America’’ (CtC), and its sequel, 'Was Grandpa Really a Moron?' have been routinely retaining and recovering billions of dollars which otherwise-- wrongly, but as a matter of course-- would have gone to federal or state government treasuries. This despite concerted efforts by government to suppress his work, and in some cases vigorously oppose the claims by his students.

Hendrickson is also a widely-read essayist on matters of politics, public policy and law; many of these works are collected in his second book, ‘Upholding the Law And Other Observations’. He is a member of Mensa; an award-winning artist; and has paid his dues as a youth soccer coach. He is a long-time political activist as well, and has served as co-chair and platform convention delegate of Michigan’s largest county Libertarian Party organization; as a consultant to the National Right to Work Foundation and Citizens for a Sound Economy; as a member of the Heartland Institute; and as a member of the International Society for Individual Liberty. He is a frequent radio-show guest on stations across the country.

Hendrickson's business career has included nearly a decade-and-a-half at the leading edge of the renewable-energy industry, both as Director of Purchasing and Materials Management and member of the R&D board at Starpak Energy Systems, the mid-west's then-largest solar heating and energy-recovery-and re-utilization company; and as founder and president of AFJ Inc., a high-efficiency lighting design, manufacture and installation firm.

Beginning in the mid-1990s and continuing for the twelve years before his present full-time focus on the restoration of the rule of law in America, Hendrickson directed purchasing activities for the $84 million-a-year multi-family-housing division of the Farmington Hills, Michigan branch of Edward Rose and Sons, with responsibility for 18,000+ apartments, direct supervision of 35 technicians and agents, and incidental authority over several hundred divisional workers. He also ran the division's 10 cable television earth-station and distribution systems in four states, and designed and administered the company's website.

On rather the other end of the spectrum, amidst these more mundane pursuits Hendrickson co-founded and was the primary creative force behind a small board- and card-game company that enjoyed a modest success for several years.

Hendrickson makes his home in southeast Michigan, with his wife and two children. He is currently working on his next book.
