"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 (thirteenth) edition of CtC!

 

 

I'm delighted when anyone wishes to share what I have posted here with others! Sharing this page is an important means of moving toward the restoration of the rule of law-- PLEASE DO IT!! But I'd appreciate your doing so by directing your friends here themselves, rather than by copying and emailing the material.

You can't understand the present if you don't understand the past...

Illuminating anniversaries of this week:

April 18- In 1775, Paul Revere makes his midnight ride to rouse the American militia.  In 1783, the fighting in the war for American independence comes to an end.  In 1906, an earthquake and consequent fire destroys much of San Francisco.  Unhindered by FEMA or other officious and corrupt interference from Washington, the city is quickly rebuilt.  In 1923, Yankee Stadium opens.  In 1946, the League of Nations is dissolved.

Anniversaries of interest for each day of this week will be found throughout the newsletter below.

 

"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 REAL Wielders Of America's Shield

As always, the truth has fiction beat hollow-- meet our first victor of the new year and all those he joins

LAST WEEK I POSTED MY EXCITED AND DELIGHTED REVIEW of the new film, 'Captain America: The Winter Soldier', a wonderful security-state smack-down and basic-principles-of-law uplift. This is the tale of a fictional American hero who responds to data-mining, signature-strikes, mass-surveillance and the law-defying government officers behind them as the evils that they are-- by destroying the corrupt institutions facilitating their nauseating, inherently un-American offenses against liberty and the rule of law.

This week I'm even MORE excited and delighted to review the NON-fiction tales of REAL American heroes who really HAVE stood up to say "NO!" to corruption in government.

These real American heroes learned the truth about the state's very favorite and most lucrative myth, by which vast amounts of power and wealth have been snookered out of the hands of the people and into the hands of those pulling the state's levers since the 1940s (power and wealth by which the data-mining, signature-striking, mass-surveilling and much, much more are made possible). These outstanding men and women stand tall.

For each of these American grown-ups, one, or ten, or a hundred fewer bricks are available for the prison-cell wall being built around us all. For each occasion on which these folks uphold the rule of law against its defilers, America's proper foundation is restored and strengthened. They are the "brave" from the song, and they're making the "free" part real again.

These heroes sometimes act in the very face of a snarling, angry and resistant bureaucracy. All of them act with the knowledge that as much as the entire edifice of state authority does not and cannot dispute the lawfulness of their actions, the 800-lb. gorilla that past apathy and ignorance has allowed the state to become really dislikes their heroic upholding of the law.

JOINING THE RANKS OF THESE OUTSTANDING AMERCIAN GROWN-UP MEN AND WOMEN TODAY is the first CtC warrior to share a victory over year 2013. Ross filed early, and just a couple days ago received (a typically post-dated) acknowledgement from the feds that his normal non-privileged earnings do not qualify as "income" and are not subject to the tax.

There IS a modest glitch-- Ross made the mistake discussed here. The government appears to have chosen to exploit the error by hanging on to Ross's Social security and Medicare withholdings for the moment, even while agreeing that Ross didn't engage in the activity that cause such taxes to arise. I'm sure that'll be dealt with in due course, such as took place in this very similar incident from a few years ago.

Ross's filing, and his immediate response to the government's shabby ploy regarding the FICA amounts, can be seen here. Ross, you are most welcome to the Honor Roll!

I'M GOING TO FOLLOW IN A MOMENT WITH THE HONOR ROLL ITSELF-- the list of the truly remarkable handful of these heroes who have had the courage and generosity to share with me, for sharing with the world, their victories on behalf of the rule of law. But I want to precede that list with an admonition.

One of the points I observed about the wonderful model of heroism in 'Captain America: The Winter Soldier' is how Steve Rogers' simple moral clarity cuts through the mud of legalisms, pretexts and rationalizations by which the corruption he condemns is defended.

Minds weakened by a lifetime of state-worship conditioning let themselves be bullied into making room for that mud. The mud gets elevated to the status of "counter-argument" in those minds, as though whether or not the government is obliged to obey the Constitution is open for debate, or whether or not Constitutional limits are subject to "interpretation" by appointees of the very government actors on which they are imposed to accommodate what government actors want to do.

Rogers, true to his heroic role, isn't compromised by the self-defeating habit of paying respect to such sophistries. He knows they can be deemed wrong on their faces simply because they support the violation of principles known to be right.

Nick Fury, head of the 'Strategic Homeland Intervention, Enforcement, and Logistics Division' proudly tells Rogers that his spy satellite capability is so good that it can read the DNA of terrorists before they step out of their spider-holes, and allows them to be Hellfire-bug-splatted before causing any harm. Rogers has an instant, confident, raised-eyebrow rebuke: "I thought the punishment usually came AFTER the crime..."

Later, when an angry Fury admonishes Rogers to get with the program, Rogers wastes no time on internal debate of what he already knows to be wrong: "Don't count on it." is his flat and immediate reply.

I want to ask each and every one of you reading these words to apply the same clean and simple intellectual and spiritual muscularity here. I want you to push out the mud.

YOU SEE, FOR ABOUT 100 YEARS, THERE HAS BEEN A CAMPAIGN UNDERWAY to spin public understanding of the impetus behind the Sixteenth Amendment and the meaning and effect of the amendment itself. The spin has thrown a lot of mud into a lot of minds.

For instance, we have been invited all our lives to imagine that the Sixteenth Amendment repealed (or "modified") the apportionment clauses controlling capitations and other direct taxes in Article 1, sections 2 and 9 of the US Constitution. Renderings of the text of the Constitution will often have a note associated with the apportionment clauses that reads something like this "(...but see the Sixteenth Amendment)". The reader is intended to conclude that the Sixteenth Amendment has a "but" effect on those clauses.

In fact, NOT ONE WORD of the amendment actually says anything of the sort. The Supreme Court REPEATEDLY (and unanimously, in its most focused, comprehensive and heavily-cited dispositive ruling on the subject) says the amendment does no such thing-- and even that it CANNOT do any such thing. The Treasury Department says the amendment does no such thing. NO authority actually says the amendment does any such thing, and THEY ALL say it does not.

But you've been invited to imagine the contrary. That invitation has been made to you so many times that it has left mud in your mind, and when you are challenged to speak or share the truth about the tax, the mud obscures the clarity of your understanding, saps your confidence and intimidates you into restraint, equivocation or even paralysis and silence.

ANOTHER KIND OF MUD IS THE VARIETY GENERATED BY TROLLISH AGENTS-PROVOCATEUR, who actively inject cognitive pot-holes into the minds of the vulnerable. These folks chiefly peddle two kinds of obscurants.

One of these troll-muds consists of the fact that government beneficiaries of the mythology about the tax have occasionally resisted or defied the truth over the ten years since CtC first laid it out and revealed itself as the antidote to the myths. The idea here is to exploit your life-long conditioning to respect people in government offices and by default to imagine them to be honest and honorable.

The hope is that the "trust" conditioning has such a full-nelson on your brain that you will doubt what you see with your own eyes (the words of the law, the words of the Supreme Court, and the government's endlessly-repeated concrete actions).

The hope is that you are of such a weak mind that you will say to yourself, "Well, I've studied all the evidence and it's undisputable. But some attorneys at the DOJ and a couple of judges didn't hesitate to attack Pete (albeit with the use of some odd and illegal dodges), and are attacking his wife (albeit with the use of some odd and illegal dodges)and the IRS occasionally resists some folks acting to reclaim their property (albeit with the use of some odd and illegal dodges, dozens of which, interestingly, have a documented history of collapsing when all is said and done). So I guess what I just saw with my own eyes isn't really true."

THE OTHER KIND OF TROLL-MUD consists of distracting nonsense purporting to be "alternate theories" about the nature or mechanics of the tax. These false notions are injected into circulation in the CtC community and among those on the edge of becoming CtC-educated in order to undermine your confidence and your ability to successfully spread the liberating truth.

Years ago I was naive about these injections of infection. I imagined that most of them were just sincere misunderstandings born of the interaction of not-so-great research skills and the complexities of the tax law.

My view of this began to change when I encountered a blatant fabrication deployed to support one of these "competing theories", as discussed here. As the years went by, I began to note the persistent reappearance of the same ridiculous, plainly incorrect and long-since rebutted notions about the tax in regular cycles, as though someone has marked on his calendar certain scheduled dates on which to send out an email with the "31 Facts About The Income Tax" or something touting "Redemption Theory" or "1099-OID".

Every now and then something new will appear (or at least, something new to me). Just last week I saw an email boost for what I suppose would want to be called the "Section 83" argument-- a ludicrous effort to distract the community arguing, it would seem, that the key to understanding (and being liberated from) the tax lies in 26 USC § 83. Somehow those contriving this one overlooked the fact that section 83 didn't even get added to the body of tax law until 1969, and is actually only about how compensation in the form of stock is to be evaluated when measuring the amount of taxable activity it represents.

Also last week (this stuff has a tendency to flood the net with special abandon at this time of year) I saw a big (unsigned) item explaining that the income tax isn't actually an excise. Instead (we are told), the tax is actually a tariff on foreign-related gains. This assertion is based on the fact that... wait for it... the Brushaber court refers to its case as an effort to enjoin the Union Pacific R.R. from "complying with the income tax provisions of the tariff act of October 1913". Wow.

This "tariff" argument also deploys some casual misrepresentation (and related misconstruction) of some Supreme Court rulings; some strained discussion of the use of the term "duty" in early income tax enactments (with a disregard-- or ignorance-- of the fact that in 1866 Congress specified that its use of the term was to be understood to just mean "tax"); and a good deal more.

 As I mentioned above, at one time I would have ascribed these errors (and the many others not mentioned here) to a meeting of poor research skills with the daunting complexity of the tax law. But the entire truth about the tax was laid bare in CtC more than ten years ago. That ten years has seen thousands and thousands of government admissions of its correctness-- all unprecedented in American history, and of the most unambiguous, deep-evidentiary character.

More, CtC's body of documentation and historical evidence and authority has continuously been growing ever since. It is impossible to continue to believe these erroneous notions to be sincere mistakes.

On the contrary, all of these servings of mud must be deliberate, and those serving them out government actors. At best, the "delivery-men" are useful idiots after the fashion of those recruited and exploited by the FBI to participate in phony "domestic terrorist" incidents and keep the masses scared and the funding-pot boiling-- mushrooms given bogus stuff to deploy as unknowing tools in service to a government project.

In addition to the anonymous e-mailers, there are the "permanently emplaced" radiators of this sort of troll-mud. These include sites like "Family Guardian" (also known as "SEDM"), "Freedom Law School" "Truth Attack" and the recently discovered "Weiss Associates", among many others. Unless these folks are so stubbornly blind that they have to be hit with a brick to recognize that CtC is "it", and that the only thing needed now is 100% solidarity and steadfastness, they are government operatives or tools. In any event, they have nothing to offer but mud.

The long and the short of it is that if you encounter tax-related material by email or on the web which doesn't advise you to read CtC as pretty-much the first thing (or DO get that advice but then subsequently encounter anything in conflict with, or additional to, what you have seen in CtC or 'Was Grandpa Really a Moron?'), you're dealing with a knowing or unknowing government-scam-serving affair meant to throw mud in your eyes.

FINALLY, THERE IS THE MUD OF FEAR. This is the mud that basically comes from inside. It whispers, "It doesn't matter what's right and what's not-- doing what the government wishes you wouldn't risks trouble! Stand down..."

I have very little to say about this last kind of mud, and even if I wanted to try I couldn't improve on the words of Sam Adams that have always been the "Last Word" on this newsletter page since its inception, or those of Thomas Jefferson that are the very last thing on this webpage. I will leave commentary on the mud of fear to those worthy gentlemen.

SO, ALL THIS DIRTY TALK WAS PRELUDE TO ONE SIMPLE POINT: Heroes arise from within ordinary people once the mud of fear and doubt are washed away. Today we're going to honor a bunch of these "ordinary" heroes-- America's real-life anti-S.H.I.E.L.D.. These are the real-life wielders of the shield the Founders designed for just these times in the hope that good folks like these would still grace the land.

I hope all of you will join me in honoring these men and women. I also hope that you'll share my hope that come the end of this year's season of truth or lies, there are a whole lot more heroes whose names can be proudly added to this list.

If you've shaken off all the mud and DO share that hope, I ask you to join me in one big project right now, today-- as soon as you have read this, and while a few days remain before "tax day": SEND THIS LINK TO EVERYONE IN YOUR ADDRESS BOOK.

Preface the link with a note doing your best job to get your addressee to read the linked page through. Maybe you'll want to include the list below, active and in its entirety, to capture your correspondents' attention. Maybe include some of the little testimonials here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here and here, or this film. Do anything you think will help.

The math is simple and compelling. If every one of you suppresses your shyness and does this little thing as well as you possibly can (and why not? What you'll be telling your friends, family, colleagues and whatever is nothing but the truth, and a very important truth) a minimum of ONE MILLION of your fellow Americans will be given a chance to become heroes too.

This country needs all its heroes. Be one, and help make more.

NOTE: These are but a few of tens of thousands of such refunds being secured from the federal and 38 state and local governments continuously since 2003 by readers of 'Cracking the Code- The Fascinating Truth About Taxation In America' who act on their complete knowledge of the true nature of the income tax.

NOTE II: Remember that these victories in enforcing our fundamental law have been flowing without interruption...

...since the beginning of intense IRS efforts to suppress CtC in 2003;

...since the DOJ itself was compelled to move for dismissals of multiple IRS efforts to attack CtC as "promoting false or fraudulent tax schemes" in different courts across the country in 2004 and 2005;

...since a carefully-inaccurate description of a typical CtC-educated filing was listed as #1 on the IRS "Dirty Dozen" list in 2006 (reappearing again as #5 in 2007 and #10 in 2009). Interestingly, in 2008 the Sixth Circuit Court Of Appeals excused this and similar efforts to mislead, declaring that the government can't be prohibited from "SUGGESTING [that CtC] promotes false or fraudulent tax schemes"... (emphasis added);

...since the launching of the hokey and contrived IRS PR-campaign "lawsuit" against my wife and me in 2006, ostensibly seeking to recover refunds made to us several years ago-- which even the United States Treasury Department acknowledges were, and remain, perfectly proper-- by means of an unprecedented court order commanding us to replace previously-made sworn testimony with words dictated by the government declaring our earnings to be of a taxable variety and to only speak government-approved words in the future;

...since the IRS launched a vicious assault on me personally in 2008 in a desperate, deeply corrupt effort to cow the educated into paralysis and frighten the ignorant away from the liberating truth, so as to continue successfully bleeding both into penury and subjugation;

...and since a criminal action was brought against my wife alleging non-compliance with DOJ-requested court orders assuming control of her speech of so obviously-illegal and indefensible a character that the government resorted to a jury instruction for her trial barring consideration of the lawfulness or Constitutionality of the orders: "It is not a defense to the crime of contempt that the court order was unlawful or unconstitutional"  in deciding whether she could be found to have violated an actual legal duty when resisting them.

DON'T MISS THE MESSAGE! This history-- both the decade+ of non-stop concrete concessions by governments all across the land, and the decade+ non-stop effort to suppress CtC by any means necessary-- exists because CtC IS the potent mechanism to restrain the rogue state that I have told you it is. The state knows this very well, even if the deaf, dumb and blind media does not.

YOU need to recognize this, and recognize how uniquely important it is for the preservation of your liberty for you to get this word out, and to stand and act like a real American hero!!

Look at every other "activist" thing on which you spend your time. Ask yourself if any even remotely meets this same standard of hard evidence concerning its significance. Then push them all aside and focus your energy on the one "patriot's task" that has so thoroughly proven its worth.

 

By the way, click here to see a couple score fully-documented instances in which the tax agency involved tried hard to resist issuing those refunds to educated claimants, the progress and outcomes of which nicely illustrate who's got the law on their side and who doesn't.

 

But, hey! Don't forget the "official position" on the matter:

 The teacher asked, "Why aren't you a fan of Big Government?"

April 19- Dateline: Boston.

Massachusetts Governor Condemns Armed Extremists

Guard units seeking to confiscate a cache of recently banned assault weapons were ambushed on April 19 by the elements of a paramilitary extremist faction.  Military and law-enforcement sources estimate that 72 were killed and more than 200 injured before government forces were compelled to withdraw.

Speaking after the clash, the Massachusetts governor declared that the extremist faction, which was made up of local citizens, has links to the radical right wing tax protest movement.  The Governor blamed the extremists for recent incidents of vandalism directed against internal revenue offices.  The governor described the group's organizers as criminals, and issued an executive order authorizing the summary arrest of any individual who has interfered with the government's efforts to secure law and order.

The military raid on the extremist arsenal followed widespread refusal by the local citizenry to turn over recently outlawed assault weapons.

The governor issued a ban on military style weapons and ammunition earlier in the week.  This decision followed a meeting earlier this month between government and military leaders at which the governor authorized forcible confiscation of illegal arms.  One government official, speaking on condition of anonymity, pointed out that none of these people would have been killed had the extremists obeyed the law and turned over their weapons.  Government troops initially succeeded in confiscating a large supply of outlawed weapons and ammunition elsewhere in the state.

 However, troops attempting to seize arms and ammunition in Lexington met with resistance from heavily armed extremists who had been tipped off regarding the government's plan.  During an intense standoff in Lexington's town park, National Guard Colonel Francis Smith, commander of the government operation, ordered the armed group to surrender their weapons and return to their homes.

The impasse was broken by a single shot, which was reportedly fired by one of the right wing extremists.  Eight civilians were killed in the ensuing exchange.

Ironically, the local citizenry blamed the government forces rather than the extremists for the civilian deaths.  Before order could be restored, armed citizens from surrounding areas had descended upon the guard units.  Col.  Smith, finding his forces over matched by the armed mob, ordered a retreat.

The governor has called upon citizens to support the state and national joint task force in its effort to restore law and order.  The governor also demanded the surrender of those responsible for planning and leading the attack against government troops.  Samuel Adams, Paul Revere, and John Hancock, who have been identified as the ring leaders of the extremist faction, remain at large.

 

 Also on this date:  In 1933, FDR announces the abandonment of the gold standard.  In 1961, the Bay of Pigs invasion effort is defeated.  In 1993, the Clinton administration firebombs a community in Waco, Texas, killing 81 American men, women and children.  In 1995, the Alfred P. Murrah federal building in Oklahoma City is partly destroyed by explosives.  In 2011, Fidel Castro resigns after 45 years in office as head of Cuba's Communist Party Central Committee.  In 2013, Tamerlan Tsarenev, alleged Boston Marathon bomber, is said to have been killed in a shoot-out with police. Some reason exists to be uncertain of the truth of this story.

 

Real Americans don't accommodate fog, lies and a sliding scale of adherence to the rule of law. Real American men and women stand up for the truth and the law, come what may, knowing that it is only by setting the bar at the top and enforcing it, come what may, that liberties are secured.

 

"Heaven knows how to put a proper price upon its goods; and it would be strange indeed if so celestial an article as freedom should not be highly rated."

How Cops Are SUPPOSED To Behave

Remember when cops were public servants?

LAST WEEK I POSTED A VIDEO made by some good Americans refusing to comply with a plainly illegal "show your ID" traffic interdiction in Tennessee (at the end of this article). Today I want to share another video-- this one staged, but offering a fine and very pointed contrast to the first.

This new film is a model of how a law-respecting cop behaves in dealing with motorists in America (albeit, one rather more talkative than many). I'll post a link below the film by which you can automatically invite your friends to see this one, too.

THIS WEEK'S RECOMMENDED READING:

Someone Teach John Kerry About History!

There's a reason why Putin makes Kerry and the president look clownish: He understands the history others forget

by Patrick L. Smith

Many Americans flinch from the latest turn in the Ukraine crisis now that Vladimir Putin has taken control of it. It was the same in Syria last autumn, you will recall. The Western powers whip themselves into a dither, and the Russian president then makes some simple, galvanizing move that puts everything on a different course.

In Syria, Putin and Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov jumped on an offer Secretary of State John Kerry made but never intended to: Within two days of Kerry’s much-noted press conference in London last autumn, Moscow had Bashar al-Assad surrendering his chemical weapons stockpile. The U.S. threat of a missile strike melted, and Putin had wrested the initiative in the Syria crisis from Washington’s grip.

Same again now in Ukraine. Just as the Obama administration and its European allies reached high decibels last weekend, Putin telephoned Obama in Riyadh and said approximately, “My people need to talk to your people now.” Kerry and Lavrov have been negotiating ever since, the American declaring that there is no solution in Ukraine but a political solution.

Some readers will think I glorify the Russian leader and denigrate the Americans as if on autopilot. This is not it. Putin is a gifted statesman: I stand by this observation. He brings an understanding of history to his foreign relations. And in his dealings with Washington he exposes the very old American habit of refusing history any place in the understanding of anything — which is to say the habit of making nearly every mistake it is possible to make. This is why I like watching Putin.

WHAT THE HELL IS WRONG WITH YOU??!!

 

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..."

This And That

A question about TurboTax; Lies about Crimea; The REAL "Equal Pay" problem; more...

A QUESTION FOR THE COMMUNITY: Does anyone know how TurboTax responds to educated input? When CtC revelations first spread across the country, some newly-educated folks already had this software, and I heard from a few that educated input would result in respectful, appropriate output. If you put in $0 "wages" and $xxxx.xx withheld, the program would produce a suitable 4852, for instance, just as would any honest, competent CPA or H&R Block worker.

I have been told that this proper output has been disabled in recent versions of TurboTax. So I wonder what DOES the program do in response to educated inputs? Produce an error message? Tell you to call the IRS for some browbeating? Surreptitiously use your computer to alert the nearest "Fusion Center" that "one of those folks" is living at 123 Elm Street? Disable itself?

If anyone knows, I'd like to, too. Please post the answer in the "Comments" section on this page!

 *****

CtC WARRIOR ROB TERRY has produced a nice graphic riffing off 'The Criminal Rites Of Spring':

How sure are you?

This is definitely suitable for sharing-- get the image here.

 

THE ONGOING TIRESOME PROPAGANDA ABOUT RUSSIA AND CRIMEA prompts me to make this observation: If Russia had actually engaged in any kind of "take-over" or even just had coercively-imposed or improperly-administered the annexation referendum leading to Crimea re-joining Russia, Crimea would be awash in violence right now. Crimeans are men and women just like we are, and they would not be quietly taken over; even if just a minority felt themselves the victims of an illegitimate process that minority would be in the streets.

There is NOTHING of the sort going on in Crimea. Every word by anyone claiming, suggesting or implying a Russian crime in regard to the annexation is simply lying in service to some evil agenda. Don't be fooled, and don't tolerate the bs.

*****

ENOUGH ABOUT "EQUAL PAY FOR WOMEN" ALREADY! Everyone not as dumb as a box of rocks knows that women already get paid the same as men for actually doing the same work. The most basic laws of economics-- which is a hard science in areas like this-- make it impossible to have it otherwise. So that's a non-issue.

But this non-issue brings to mind a REAL disparity issue: The need for equal pay for competent people! Right now, as has been the case for many years, the swarm of incompetents in Washington, DC and state capitals-- known to be so based on their failure to actually solve any of the problems they claim to be there to fix-- are paid far more than their competent private-sector counterparts.

According the Bureau of Labor Statistics' December, 2013 compensation comparison of state and local government workforces to the private sector, the trough-snufflers average a whopping $42.89 per hour versus a meager $29.63 for the folks who pay them. The differential between federal workers and their nominal bosses is even greater.

Amusingly (considering the refusal of the same folks to acknowledge experiential and longevity considerations when engaging in demagoguery on the fictional "women's pay gap), defenders of this situation argue that government workers are often more educated than their private-sector counterparts! Think about this. It is an argument that someone who, as part of an institutional workforce, handles responsibilities overall less well than his or her counterparts should still be paid more due to holding an advanced academic credential while doing the underperforming!

Bottom line: I think we should replace the debate about the fictional "equal pay for women problem" with a focus on the very real problem of equal pay for the productive (that is, the private) sector.

DO YOU KNOW WHY THE LIBERATING TRUTH ABOUT THE INCOME TAX is spreading so slowly, and not being taken up and trumpeted by the alt-media (at least)? Do you know why that truth is not a big presence in public consciousness, supporting you in your conversations on the subject with your friends, family, co-workers, bosses and professional service-providers?

The reason is that very often when someone first hears about that truth, the next thing he or she does is go to the internet and "google" CtC or me. What comes up in greatest number or most prominence can strongly influence whether that person moves forward or backward, and unfortunately, what often comes up most strongly are DOJ and troll posts rich with disparaging and misleading propaganda about either subject. The reason this is so is because YOU are not posting contrary material rebutting the lies and misrepresentations.

If we are all going to get the benefit of this liberating truth, I cannot be the only voice correcting the record on the internet about "what the courts have REALLY ruled" in regard to CtC. I can't be the only one debunking the efforts to disparage CtC by misrepresentations of the kangaroo-court assaults on me.

Whether the truth wins out here involves a battle of pens, not swords. YOU HAVE TO BE IN THIS BATTLE, or it may not be won for years. On the other hand, if you DO get into this battle and get thoughtful posts up all over the internet designed to address the specific problem I describe here, it can be won very quickly indeed. Please do your part.

It's YOUR LAW, People-- But Only If YOU Insist It Be Respected

Here's a way to do that, and a proper occasion:

Dear [Editor, Mom, Journalist, Buddy, Pastor, Colleague...]

I never thought I would see the day in this country when I could be ordered to sign my name to words dictated by the United States government, not to mention words I believe to be false. I've seen this sort of thing on TV where American hostages are giving testimonials with ski-masked, armed captors ensuring that the Americans spoke the words that would spare their lives.

With considerable dismay, I now see our judiciary employing the same tactics that terrorists impose on their victims. Doreen Hendrickson has been ordered to perjure herself, that is to sign her name to documents that say things the government wants said, even though she believe these things to be false.

Seven years ago, Federal Judge Nancy Edmunds (ED Michigan) ordered Doreen to make this false testimony, and to declare that it is her own testimony. Three-and-a-half  years later Edmunds added a requirement that the fact that the testimony is coerced and not Doreen's own be concealed (as asked of her by the IRS and DOJ).

Doreen now faces trial on charges of criminal contempt of court for resisting these plainly illegal orders. This is not the first trial, though-- it is the second government shot at Doreen.

The trial judge in Doreen's first trial last October actually ordered the jury to disregard the unconstitutionality of the orders Doreen is accused of "criminally resisting" (at the request of the team of attorneys from Washington flown in to prosecute her). Doreen, completely a legal amateur in every way, took on the government's conviction-by-any-means-necessary specialists all by herself. Still, the government could not get the jury to convict.

Despite the huge effort put on by the team of three DOJ attorneys during the four-day trial, at least some members of the jury recognized that the law and the facts are entirely on Doreen's side. But the government desperately wants this conviction. It views the preservation of certain key myths about the income tax to be at stake, and so it is coming back at Doreen again.

Let me be clear. Doreen is not being put through this for refusing to testify. She HAS already testified. The government just doesn't like what she said, and is trying to coerce her into saying things more to its interests. (Can you say: suborning perjury? How about: raw, banana-republic-level corruption?)

Though the testimony involved is on tax returns, this fact is not relevant. The only relevant issue is that a federal judge has completely overstepped her authority.

No one in this country can legally compel custom testimony...Not on a tax form...Not on a contract... NOT ON ANYTHING!!!

Please help to uphold the principles on which this country was founded. Today, it's Doreen and a tax form. Tomorrow...

Please join me in taking serious notice of this precipitous descent into Stalinism in an America already dangerously far down the road to complete lawlessness and barbarism.

Read the document that follows. Some of the material will be easy, some will call for a little more effort, but all will be crystal clear, even the legal briefs linked at the end.

Remember, in this country, the law is YOUR law, and the only ones who can enforce it against government operatives who take liberties with the rules are the rest of us. They can't be relied upon to police themselves, as what you are about to read will make obvious.

Sincerely Yours,

Where Are All The Journalists? Where Is Your Outrage?

We haven't ever before had a trial for heresy in America, but one is on the docket now...

BACK IN WHAT WE ALL LIKE TO THINK OF AS A DISTANT PAST, the ways of which are universally viewed with derision, contempt and condemnation as both simple-minded and barbaric, people were sometimes accused of "heresy". The crime was the profession of a belief which "the authorities" wished to go unspoken.

The fictional pretext for criminalizing heresy was that the heretic really knew better than what she errantly professed, because the officially-approved beliefs are presumed to be unmistakable established truths. They wouldn't be the "officially-approved" beliefs otherwise, don't you see, and anyone too dense to recognize them like everyone else has done must know them to be such truths anyway, because of that "official approval".

A heretic could therefore be properly punished for lying and properly made to declare instead what the authorities knew she really knew to be true. Further, the crime wasn't just an individual perjury; a heretic's continued profession of her errant beliefs, and her failure to recant and instead profess the favored view, would infect the minds of others with her seditious beliefs.

Perhaps the best known victim of this tyrannical practice was Galileo Galilei. Galileo was accused of heresy for declaring his belief that the Earth revolved around the Sun, contrary to the official view at the time.

Sorry to say, Galileo recanted his perfectly correct conclusions and was spared being burned at the stake. (He was sentenced to house arrest for the rest of his life anyway, for having lied in the first place as proven by his recantation, and as warning against the next person who might be tempted to publicly declare a belief contrary to the "official" one that everybody knows to be true, the right to do so having been something else Galileo had asserted as part of his "heresy").

Popular resistance to this manifestly improper rationalization for the exercise of state power against an individual was overcome with the sly claim that it was all about saving the souls of the accused, since heresies were purportedly rejections of God. This was combined with the unspoken but obvious threat that anyone who objected too strongly to the assault on any "heretic" could be readily tarred as being a heretic himself, and would become the next in line for the attention of the inquisitor.

The real goal, of course, was the suppression of information, conclusions and beliefs which threatened to take hold in the minds of others and undermine the status quo. Those in power understand that the reason things are the way they are, with themselves on top, is because of the way things are. They strive mightily to prevent change-- especially change in the perceptions of those capable of taking away their power.

***

A "TRIAL" FOR HERESY WAS SOMETIMES KNOWN AS an "auto de fe"-- an "act of faith". Once the relevant tribunal (the "inquisitor", generally) had determined that the charged expression qualified as heresy, the accused would be given a chance to recant her disfavored belief and declare her adherence to a position the powers-that-be found more to their liking. If stubborn, the accused would be tortured for a while to help her remember that deep down inside she knew the truth of the favored view and the error of her own (or that deep down, she really didn't believe her professed view at all).

If an accused heretic were to recant (under the influence, or anticipatory fear, of the torture or other penalties of continued contumaciousness), she might still be punished, but not so badly as otherwise. If she did not, things would be the worse for her...

Barbaric and simple-minded, right? Thing of the past, yes?

Indeed, this kind of thing is expressly prohibited in America by virtue of the First Amendment guarantee of freedom of expression and conscience, isn't it?

NOT ANYMORE.

This very day Doreen Hendrickson faces a charge of heresy. Doreen has been charged with criminal contempt of court for refusing to recant a belief about a matter of law which she has repeatedly declared under oath, and to replace it with a contrary statement declaring that she believes something the government would prefer her to say.*

Doreen was ordered to declare this government-dictated "belief" over her sworn signature attesting that it is her own belief. She was also ordered to lie about the fact that the recantation and contrary, government-dictated declaration are by command of the court, so as to perfect the appearance that these are things done of her own accord and truly reflect what she herself really believes to be true and correct.

What's more, the "belief" that Doreen was ordered to declare is that her earnings qualify for the "income tax". Plainly, this is something either objectively true or not, irrespective of Doreen Hendrickson's beliefs, meaning that the order can have no legitimate practical or legal purpose.

Further, Doreen is ordered to declare this "belief" on her own tax form, the legal effect of which is to authorize the government to impose a tax on those earnings. The government has been unable to assess a tax on these earnings, even over the course of the 11 years that have passed since some of them were received-- because, in fact, her earnings do NOT qualify for the tax, as this history, and the very fact that the government is trying to force Doreen to agree that they do, should make clear to anyone old enough to be out of kindergarten.

Thus, the coerced lies ordered by the government and the court assault not only the very core of liberty-- freedom of speech and conscience. They also assault the principle of "due process" as well, under which no one can be forced to declare agreement with a legal adversary's view of the facts.

More, these corrupt orders don't simply serve the state's corrupt political interest overtly declared in the court's order, which explained itself as intended to discourage others who "imitate" Doreen and "file false tax returns"-- returns which, in their tens of thousands over a full decade now and even when striven mightily against, the government has been unable to overcome by any legal means and which are plainly NOT "false", like the educated amended return that produced this complete refund-- with interest-- for Henry and Kathleen:

 

No, these corrupt orders have the added dimension of serving the direct and immediate financial interest of those in control of the state, as well, because that's really what this is all about.

I THINK EVERY RATIONAL AMERICAN CAN AGREE that it's one thing for the state to tell someone that she must declare what she believes, and it's rather another for the state to tell someone WHAT she must declare she believes. The one is mere "discovery". The other is rankest tyranny.

Doreen's trial ended in a hung jury, thanks to her good fortune in ending up with one or more real Americans being among those into whose hands this case was put. But if everyone's right to freedom of speech and conscience is to still be preserved when the government comes back at her again next summer, we all need to make some noise about this assault, and keep on making it.

“Liberty is meaningless where the right to utter one’s thoughts and opinions has ceased to exist. That, of all rights, is the dread of tyrants. It is the right which they first of all strike down. They know its power. Thrones, dominions, principalities, and powers, founded in injustice and wrong, are sure to tremble, if men are allowed to reason…”

-Frederick Douglass

What Do The People Do About The Rogue State??

The most important question facing Americans today

I HAD THIS QUESTION POSED TO ME BY AN EMAIL CORRESPONDENT the other day. I guess this just shows how poor a job I've done at communicating, because I have been trying to shout the answer to this one from the rooftops for a long time.

That answer is simple: The People impose restraint on the rogue state by choosing-- one by one-- to cease voluntarily turning control over their resources to the state, and choosing instead to retain control over those resources. This is done by refusing-- one by one-- to engage in "income tax" excisable activities (and refusing to blindly or fearfully allow their activities to be treated or taken as excisable activities upon which the tax arises, when they really are not).

The refusal of individual Americans to voluntarily engage in excisable activities forces the state to resort to highly-politically-accountable, highly-politically-vulnerable alternatives revenue sources. These include options like direct, apportioned taxes (which will not be tolerated by the people or approved by Congress at $multi-trillion annual volumes), and/or increased revenue tariffs (which can raise amounts adequate for legitimate state needs, but are very self-regulating, since consumers naturally choose domestic product alternatives when higher tariffs raise the prices of imports beyond a certain point).

This solution is precisely the one intended and provided for by the Founders-- who didn't impose the taxation rules in the US Constitution just so they could admire their handwriting. They put those rules in place in direct anticipation of state behavior of the sort with which we are now plagued.

 As even so odious a character as Hamilton pointed out in Federalist #21:

“Imposts, excises, and, in general, all duties upon articles of consumption, may be compared to a fluid, which will, in time, find its level with the means of paying them. The amount to be contributed by each citizen will in a degree be at his own option, and can be regulated by an attention to his resources. ...If duties are too high, they lessen the consumption; the collection is eluded; and the product to the treasury is not so great as when they are confined within proper and moderate bounds. This forms a complete barrier against any material oppression of the citizens by taxes of this class, and is itself a natural limitation of the power of imposing them.”

What we've got today is simply the direct (and perfectly predictable) consequences of NOT adhering to the Founders' plan. As Frederick Douglass trenchantly observed,

“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."

We've got plenty of injustice and wrong these days. But our fix to the problem was bought for us with blood a few hundred years ago.

All we have to do is stop playing along with the rogue state's false (and rather embarrassingly crude) paradigm  concerning who owns what, and what powers to tax have really been granted. As soon as enough of us quit endorsing that nonsense, it's all good

Tom has been writing and sending a series of short wake-up and educational essays to friends and family, one by one, for some time. When Tom told me about this, I asked him to compile the pieces and let me post them for everyone to enjoy and share with their own people. Tom, good guy and warrior for the truth that he is, was perfectly agreeable.

Here is the compilation in printable .pdf format. I hope everyone will indeed share it widely.

If You're Not Standing Up, Then You're Standing Down

...and "standing down" means "going down"...

 

MY FRIENDS, IT IS MY SINCERE BELIEF that this community of activists has been encouraged, inspired, enlightened and expanded over the years by the steady posting here of your ongoing victories on behalf of the rule of law. Certainly, it has been my pride and my joy to help you share with the world your honorable testament to the liberating truth about the tax, widespread knowledge of which is so critical to the well-being of ourselves, our children, and our beloved America.

 

However, unless YOU send those victories I can't post them. Unless YOU stand up, your courage and commitment can't inspire anyone.

 

YOU WILL RECALL THAT FOR THE LAST YEAR OR SO I've been telling you that we are in a transformational moment. Look around at what is going on today and recognize the truth of what I say.

 

More than half the American population views government as a threat. As mainstream a publication as Forbes magazine is posting articles about massive DHS ammunition and armored vehicle purchases. Denunciations of the NSA violations are features in every major MSM organ.

 

Even before Edward Snowden's documentation of particular crimes being committed against the American people the LA Times, NY Times, Washington Times and other mainstream organs were editorializing about Leviathan having grown too big, and gotten dangerously out-of-hand (see stories at each of the preceding links). In the Spring Rand Paul's filibuster denouncing the lawlessness of Mordor-on-the-Potomac prompted a major buzz across the country, and in July Justin Amash shocked Washington by very nearly defunding a huge portion of the illegal surveillance state's crimes.

 

Concurrently, this CtC community has been winning legal victories and refunds which are ever-more significant and telling. Consider, for instance, the victories which have qualified for the EWWBL collection. Every one of these is an especially illuminating acknowledgement of the truth about the tax, and now include a very significant two-time victory in a federal district court.

 

Things are happening!

 

HOW IT ALL SHAKES OUT is still up for grabs, though. This is not the time for either complacency or paralysis, because both of those don't amount to "doing nothing"-- instead they amount to "standing down". And standing down means conceding the fight, letting all these eleventh-hour sparks of light burn out unnurtured and the moment be a transformation for the worse.

 

This is not the time for standing down. This is the time for a FULL-COURT PRESS.

 

This is the time for educated American grown-ups to stand up tall and firm, pulling others to their feet by their very gravity. This is the time for leading the way.

 

STAND UP! SEND THOSE VICTORIES-- the new ones, and those of the last few years as well. Click here to learn how. Even if you don't have checks to scan, send your testimonials. Learn how to do that here.

April 24- In 1184 BC, the people of Troy are fooled by avarice into being the means of their own undoing.  Presented with a magnificent giant wooden statue of a horse, the Trojans bring it within their city's walls.  When night falls, Greek warriors hidden within the statue slip out and open the gates of their enemy's stronghold, allowing their fellows who waited outside to pour in and conquer formerly impregnable Troy.  In 1800, President John Adams signs legislation appropriating $5,000 to establish a library of "such books as may be necessary for the use of Congress".  Now occupying three large buildings holding well over 32 million books and counting-- none of which circulate to the public, and the vast, vast majority of which never have been used by any Congressman and never will be-- and with an annual budget of over $600 million and a staff of more than 3,600, the Library of Congress is a fine example of a cancerous federal boondoggle...  In 1916, the phase of the Irish rebellion known as "The Easter Risings" begins.  In 1970, China puts its first satellite into orbit.  In 1990, the Hubble Space telescope is launched into orbit; and Gruinard Island, Scotland, the test site of weaponized anthrax by the British government during World War II, is declared safe after 48 years of quarantine.

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.
