"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….."

Friends, Please Be With Me On April 9 (Updated)

BE WITH ME IN DETROIT at 12:00 PM on Thursday, April 9 when a federal judge is scheduled to finish her part in an unprecedented, now-more-than-eleven-year-old campaign to suppress a book which is feared and loathed by the lawless state. (This is a change in time just announced Friday.)

On that date, federal judge Victoria Roberts is scheduled to sentence my wife, Doreen, based on a crudely-engineered guilty verdict on a charge of criminal contempt of court. Doreen is to be punished for refusing to repudiate her own freely-made, previous testimony and falsely swear to contrary beliefs concerning facts relevant to a legal contest brought against her by the government, as she was ordered to do at the government's request by another judge eight years ago.

The matter is this simple: Doreen had freely completed U.S. income tax forms in the manner provided for by law, just like everyone else does every year. As called-for on those forms, and as everyone else does every year, Doreen declared those of her receipts she believes qualified for the tax.

Unlike what ever has happened to anyone ever before or since in the history of the United States, the government, which didn't like Doreen's declarations, sued Doreen on its claimed (though never formally-asserted) belief that other of her earnings also qualified for the tax and asked a federal district court judge to order her, on pain of imprisonment, to change her forms and swear that she agrees with the government's claims.

Doreen was not charged with failure to file, perjury, filing false forms, fraud, evasion, or anything. She was just ordered to bark like the government's trained dog, repudiate her own claims and endorse the government's version of the facts in its legal action against her, or get slapped around a bit if she refused.

DISTURBINGLY, THIS UNPRECEDENTED JUDICIAL and executive assault on speech, conscience and due process rights has had practically no objective, non-DOJ-press-release media attention even as it has dragged on now for nearly two years, and through two trials.

I think this paucity of media attention is a testament to the extremity of the government crime being committed here. That crime is so bizarre and indefensible that no one not already familiar with the backstory-- even those who are supposed to be cynical, hard-bitten members of an adversarial, watch-dog press-- can imagine that what I have just described can possibly be true.

I'm betting that most folks not already familiar with this story glance at any related copy that hits their desk or screen and mis-read it as saying that Doreen was ordered to file tax returns. These folks cognitively hiccup right over the fact that she was actually ordered to file returns replacing those to which she had already (freely) sworn, using government-dictated words expressing things she doesn't believe to be true which she is ordered to falsely swear to be her own.

And everyone's GOT to be somehow not noticing the icing on this "cake"-- that Doreen was ordered to CONCEAL the fact that the returns she was told to sign were not actually her own. Even those who could mumble their way past the significance of the first-ever ordering of false testimony in American history would have to stop and say, "WHAT??!!" at the "hide the evidence" command from a federal judge at the DOJ's request.

SO, I RELY ON YOU TO SPREAD THE WORD about April 9, and to be here showing the enemies of the rule of law that their corrupt efforts to intimidate you into silent abandonment of your rights by violating Doreen's have not worked and will not work. There will be a free seminar the next day, Friday, April 10, to which all those attending the sentencing will be invited.

Information on available area accommodations can be found here. The hearing will be at the Theodore Levin Federal Courthouse

UPDATE 3/24/15: A petition has been begun on Doreen's behalf. You can sign it here.


P. S. EVERY TIME I WRITE on this subject I am struck by some aspect of the affair that hadn't caught my attention before. This time, I became conscious of the fact that no book or body of information has ever been subjected to the suppression efforts to which CtC has been subjected throughout American history.

For instance, just as no one has ever been ordered by an American court to testify with words dictated by the government-- or has ever faced punishment for insisting that she does not believe something the government wants her forced to say she does-- so no book has ever before been systematically misrepresented as to its content by the government (as shown here and here).

Nor has any book ever had its content made the subject of a judicial ruling as in this case, when judge Nancy Edmunds formally declared her "finding" that CtC makes the arguments falsely ascribed to it by DOJ attorney Robert Metcalfe.

Think about it. What other book has ever had a federal court make a ruling declaring what it (supposedly) says?

Ask yourself why the government would ask for such a thing, and co-opt a judge into doing it. Now ask your family, your friends, your neighbor and the editor of your hometown newspaper or your favorite blogger.

This judicial-book-content-ruling is unprecedented, even without considering the manifest and deliberate falseness of that judicial declaration, and the government's own steady, contradictory acknowledgements of what the book REALLY DOES say-- and how correct it is-- on tens of thousands of occasions over more than eleven years now.

History is being made here. Everyone really should be paying attention.

Please, people. Participate in these efforts. They WILL NOT BE FRUITFUL IF YOU DON'T DO YOUR PART. If you DO do your part they might be fruitful, and can you imagine the benefit if folks with Greenwald and Poitras's journalistic reach actually came to understand the legal shenanigans involved in the "ignorance tax" scam and began to help expose them?

My Exciting New Screen-Play Idea

I HAVE AN IDEA FOR A MOVIE SCRIPT... It's a "triumph over dystopia" action drama about a once free and prosperous society in a federation of states under a pretty-narrowly drawn Constitutional rule book which has allowed a powerful centralized state to take root.

As in all such stories, sociopathic elements of the society have gravitated to offices and positions of influence and patronage in the powerful central state. The sociopaths use their positions to live off the labor of the rest of society.

 THE COLLAPSE THAT SETS THE STAGE FOR THE STORY came about through corruption. After a long, long period of phenomenally-successful implementation during which the society became enormously rich (and thus dangerously complacent and off-guard), a brilliantly-conceived key restraining mechanism on the small, closely-controlled central government-- prohibition of any kind of self-sustaining, state-imposed structure of taxation on the citizens-- had been successfully driven from popular understanding by a sustained campaign of dis-information by a corrupt intellectual community allied with the afore-mentioned political-class sociopaths.

 Once this initial conspiracy began to enjoy some success, a constituency of symbiotic interests in legal and accounting professions joined in the effort. The influence of this cabal was steadily supplemented by the central-state operators' use of portions of the wealth increasing flowing into their hands to buy additional support from various special-interest clients.

By the time of my story setting, the central state routinely engages in mass surveillance of the entire national population (and indeed, of much of the world), reading and copying mail, recording everyone's movements through millions of cameras placed throughout public spaces, listening to phone calls. Political dissent and the watch-dog functions of the media are suppressed through co-option of leadership, and the nagging suspicion in everyone's mind that the state inevitably has collected things about him or her that would be best left out of the light of day.

It has become the practice of the state to seize property from the citizenry simply upon unproven accusations under a program I'm (tentatively) calling "civil asset forfeiture). A mountain of edicts by state bureaucracies-- too many to be known by anyone-- are treated as criminal statutes applying to the general population by a corrupt law enforcement and judicial apparatus, so as to make any citizen potentially vulnerable to "legal" assault by the state at all times.

The state has established its supervision of virtually all financial activities within the country. It manipulates the money supply to the benefit of its clients and has imposed a small but steady hidden tax on the entire population for nearly a hundred years.

The state maintains a near constant state of war with (or more realistically, upon) some other peoples or countries, using the pretext of that circumstance to justify or rationalize many of these other offenses against the peoples' peace, rights and well-being, and especially to justify the ongoing massive tax-extractions. Periodically, state operators stage "terrorist" incidents at home by manipulating deeply-marginalized mentally-weak targets into participating in theatrical crimes in order to keep the population off-balance and enable denunciation of those questioning the perpetual war scam

All of these lawless usurpations and despotic practices are made possible by the central-state operators' access to massive amounts of wealth.

So, that's the fictional dystopian setting for my movie. Pretty far-fetched, I know, but hey, if you want to sell popcorn these days, you've got to use your imagination...

INTO THIS SCENARIO COME the heroes of the story-- a widely-varying collection of citizens from all walks of life, linked by a common, deeply-felt understanding of "first principles" and solid self-respect-- which means integrity, courage and intellectual honesty. These men and women (and not only a few kids) have cultivated their abilities to think clearly, study deeply and act decisively.

As the story commences, the truth about that key despot-restraining design element hard-wired into the central state's Constitutional structure which the operators of the what is now Leviathan have striven over the decades to bury beyond recovery has recently been unearthed. Over the course of a few short years, the knowledge has been disseminated throughout the at-first very small community of heroes.

One by one, each of our heroes has begun throwing their "off-switches" and disconnecting from Leviathan's feeding apparatus. Simultaneously, each has moved high-throttle into focused efforts to spread this critically-important information as far and wide as possible throughout the rest of the population...

SO, THAT'S THE BACKGROUND OF MY PICTURE, and I'm not going to say any more about it, now. I'd hate to spoil the movie for anybody before they get a chance to see it in the theatre.

But if anyone out there is in the business and wants to produce the next blockbuster in the triumph-over-dystopia genre-- which for some reason is very hot these days-- give me a call. We'll sell some popcorn.

Three Strangely Persistent Errors

I WAS ASTONISHED TO HAVE FORWARDED TO ME earlier this week a link to a webpage ("nontaxpayer.net/Art_4.3.2_tax.html") on which it is argued, in all apparent seriousness, that the income tax began in 1913. A whole lot of subordinate nonsense is then derived from this first bit, in a typical exponential snowball of "garbage out" once garbage has gone in.

How can this be? Is it possible that there are people with a serious interest in the subject of the tax who haven't seen the unambiguous data on its origin and continuity first presented in CtC and considerably expanded upon at http://losthorizons.com/Documents/The16th.htm?

IF SO, I HAVE TO WONDER if you all understand the fact that as long as this one error is allowed to persist, the "ignorance tax"-scam will remain robust and remain a plague upon YOU. That is, I have to wonder if all of you understand that the only thing that will rid you of the "ignorance tax"-scam-- with all its inconveniences, indignities, threats and offenses in its administration and all the harmful products of policy and practice that it facilitates-- is your effort at driving this one error into oblivion.

I'm dead serious. It is not necessary that you educate anyone about the overall truth about the tax. Just make sure everyone gets this one thing right, and your work is done, because the rest of the overall body of misunderstanding about the tax cannot survive the correction of this one key error.

WHEN YOU HAVE TO INTEGRATE INTO YOUR PICTURE the fact that today's tax began 51 years before the 16th Amendment and was repeatedly sustained as Constitutional during that period except for one quirky interruption based on a very narrow issue which was explicitly and exclusively addressed by the amendment, the nature of the tax, the nature of what qualifies as the "income" to which it applies, and the limited meaning and effect of the 16th Amendment-- are unavoidably wrenched into focus. This is why the ONLY thing YOU need to do to rid this great country of this pernicious scourge and all its ill effects is to respond to every expression of the "1913 origin" error with scorn, derision, denunciation and correction by insisting that the purveyor of the error read this document and its hyperlink-indicated exhibits.

It's really and truly that simple, people. When you see the "1913 origin" error in the academy, on blogs, in chatrooms, and in news stories (of which you will see MANY in the next few weeks), stridently denounce it and insist relentlessly that the truth be acknowledged. Do this one thing and do it diligently, and we win.


ANOTHER ERROR THAT REAPPEARS over and over within the "tax honesty" community is the notion that having an assigned Social Security number creates a state of privilege or in some other fashion validates the application of the tax to one's activities or gains.

These errant notions often involve discussion of "trusts" in some fashion or another. I've seen, for instance, an argument that by having or using the number one adopts the role of a trustee and that by doing so one's non-"trustee" activities-- like working at one's regular job-- are somehow inexplicably transformed into the taxable exercise of a privilege.

Or it is argued that because one is (according to this notion) a "trustee", the payments one "administers" are reduced by a tax arising from YOUR status, inexplicable in light of the fact that according to this theory, as a matter of law the payments belong to someone else (either the flesh-and-blood you or the artificial "all upper case name" you, but either way, a distinct legal "person" from the trustee). There are many variations of these themes; all rest not only on liberties taken with logic, but also on fundamental misunderstanding of Social Security.

LIKE ALL ERRORS, THESE ILL-FORMED "TRUST" AND SSN notions get between good people and learning the actual liberating truth, and so over the years I've written much to debunk them. There now being a batch of these distracting absurdities re-circulated by the enemies of the truth in order to do that "getting between" (as always happens during the season of lies and truth each year), I offer the following discussions as inoculations against infection:

The Effect Of A Social Security Number

A Little More On Social Security Numbers And The Income Tax

(You know, you can get a copy of 'Was Grandpa Really A Moron?' and have all of these great studies always at your fingertips...)


FINALLY, I was sent a document recently in which a truly pernicious little mental microbe was nesting. This was the notion that by "arguing statutes", one brings oneself within the "jurisdiction of the statutory structure" (where one otherwise hadn't been).

It's hard to imagine a more paralyzing, sidelining proposition. It's also hard to imagine one more wrong.

STATUTES ARE NOT TRAPS for the unwary. Statutes are the scope and conditions of permitted or required action imposed on those created by statute.

Your citation of statutes no more "pulls you into their clutches" than does your pointing out to a store owner who wants you to leave early that his sign shows him open for another half-hour. At the same time, to NOT cite statutes when dealing with statutory creatures is like arguing the store owner is obliged to let you continue to shop because it's just not reasonable (in your opinion) that he close before sundown.

STATUTES LAY DOWN THE PROTOCOLS to which artificial entities and their agents must conform and by which they are limited. Statutes say what can or must be done given certain facts or circumstances.

Of course, if one is interacting with a statutory entity-- by one's own initiation or that of another-- that entity will presume by default that the situation involves the specialized facts or circumstance in which it can or must act... When one is a hammer, everything one encounters will be seen as a nail.

This default behavior may be where the errant notion arises that using statutes draws one into a "statutory jurisdiction". The fact that upon interacting with a statutory entity one is initially (and often stubbornly) treated as being within its scope of action in one or other ways is mistaken for evidence that one has somehow PUT one's self into that scope.

The reality, though, is that if one has occasion to interact with a statutory entity it is simply because such presumptions are being made about facts and circumstances. The only extrication is to point out the limits and particulars of what facts and circumstances DO allow the entity to act (and that yours are otherwise), or that the scope of permitted action is other than what is being done, and so forth-- all of which means "arguing the statutes".

In this regard, the artificial entity is like a stupid or willful robot. It is programmed to seize and hold anyone whose name is Smith, but will overlook the limit unless reminded. Having been grabbed by the robot, the target, however obnoxious the imposition, must show the robot it is only allowed to hold Smith, and that the target's name is Jones.

IN ARGUING THE STATUTES, THEN, one is not arguing oneself INTO the statutory structure. On the contrary, one is thereby arguing oneself OUT of the statutory structure.

But refusing to argue the statutes is to do nothing, in the eyes of the robot, which will therefore hold on.

Arguing that robots should not be wandering around seizing and holding people is fine in the political and policy arena. But when one is in a robot's hands, one must speak robot, and invoke the program.

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.

Everyone's failure to step up and fulfill this simple request is really getting to me, now...

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

-Martin Luther King, Jr.

What does it for you?

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


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


Is it the money?


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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




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.


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!


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.


So, please make and send those videos right away! 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 here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here and here.


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

-Margaret Mead

The Crime of the Misapplied Income Tax/a>



Was Grandpa Really a Moron?

Critical Inquiries for a New American Century


Bob’s Bicycles


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.

Spread The Truth




A Few Tips For Making Best Use Of This WebSite






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.
