"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….."

Why Doreen Is Being Assaulted By The State

It's all about who's going to spend your neighbor's money. Your neighbor? Or someone like Hillary Clinton?

I WONDER HOW MANY FOLKS HAVE REALLY THOUGHT ABOUT WHY state operators are so persistent in trying to make Doreen say that she believes her earnings in 2002 and 2003 (and mine) were of the taxable variety even though they know (and have steadily admitted) that those earnings don't qualify? How many have thought about it enough to realize that it's not because the state can't stand to be defied (how ever much that arrogance IS a general pathology of states)?

Instead, the purpose behind this assault is the concealment from the public of facts about the income tax by which tens of thousands of Americans have already recovered $billions taken from them as taxes in the same way everyone else's are, but which were discovered by these now-educated Americans to never have been owed. Most other Americans would discover the same if this information became widely known.

IF THAT INFORMATION ABOUT THE TAX BECAME WIDELY KNOWN, literally $trillions of dollars would, overnight, stop shifting each year away from the people who earn it and into the control of federal and state government office-holders. America would be transformed.

The change wouldn't make the wealth go away, of course, or make it unavailable to the general economy. It would simply mean that all that wealth would no longer be deployed into the general economy in service to wasteful, counter-productive, short-term-thinking-based political decisions made by folks spending other people's money while trying to feather their own nests and those of their friends and supporters, or impose some ideological agenda on other people.

Instead all that wealth would still be deployed into the general economy, but in service to the sort of sensible, efficient and productive (or at least, harmless) allocation decisions made by people spending and investing what has been produced by the sweat of their own brow. Instead that wealth would be spent by people who act as peaceable and cooperative members of society rather than arrogant overlords backed by violence of the sort trying to force Doreen into affirming their claim to her money through threats of imprisonment if she fails to accede to those demands.

SO, DO THINK ABOUT WHY DOREEN IS BEING ASSAULTED, and then ask yourself and your friends and acquaintances some other questions. Ask, for instance, "Who would you rather was spending your neighbor's hard-earned money? Your neighbor? Or Archer-Daniels-Midland?

Your neighbor? Or the NSA?

Your neighbor? Or Raytheon?

 Your neighbor? Or Hillary Clinton?"

Ask those questions of everyone you can. I think you'll find that a lot of folks, thinking about things in that light, will start to realize why the Founders so carefully designed the limits on the taxing authority they built into the Constitution, and why it is so important that they learn about them and begin to stand up for them as the CtC community does.

Every such realization would be good for Doreen. In fact, every such realization would be good for America.

"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."

Would You Do It?


More Good Folks Stand Up For The Liberating Truth!

I surely do love the smell of Americanism in the morning!

BRENDAN TRAINOR STANDS UP to share good words and encouragement with every American yet to learn the liberating and empowering truth about the income tax:


GEORGIA JOHN SHARES A NICE VICTORY-- a complete recovery by an amended return of everything withheld and given over to Georgia in 2012, plus interest calculated for the three years the money sat where it didn't really belong:

Here is the filing that produced this victory.


AND AMERICAN GROWN-UP RALPH ROMANO shares his CtC testimony, and his frustration with the shamefully-silent "alt media" and the opportunity that keeps passing America by as a result:


SO, HERE'S SOMETHING I'VE GOT TO ASK: Where's YOUR video? Let me point something out to you about this.

You want judges, bureaucrats, CPAs, lawyers, the HR people where you work, your pastors, your neighbors and everyone else to acknowledge the truth about the tax openly and straightforwardly. How and why would these folks do this if YOU won't?

You want these folks to learn the truth. Why would they even recognize that there is a truth to be learned if you won't attest to having learned it yourself? You've got to stand up, face forward and chin up and tell these folks that you have studied and checked and verified and seen the evidence and seen the government evasions and you know that the tax is not the capitation that the beneficiary government wants everyone to think it is but a benign, but strictly limited thing, and that they need to study and learn that, too.

If you have victories to show, that's nice, and powerful, too. But you don't have to have victories to display in order to declare your knowledge of what the law says. I've never flown around the world, but I've seen the evidence and considered the arguments, and I'm not hesitant to declare it a sphere...

Even those of you who haven't yet studied CtC have surely read this short document, and have verified everything in it for yourself. You should therefore be declaring its veracity and its message, loud and proud. Again, if you won't say it, how can you hope that others will ever even bother to look at the facts?

Be the change you want to see in the world, or there won't be any change.

Finally: Fear nothing but God. And God demands from you truth and the courage to speak the truth. As Martin Luther King Jr. said, "The day we see truth and do not speak is the day we begin to die."

Once Again, It's Time To Decide How You're Going To School Your Kids

I'D REALLY LIKE EVERY PARENT OF SCHOOL-AGE CHILDREN OUT THERE to choose to keep their kids out of government conditioning centers this year. I want you to instead choose the loving, healthy and far more educationally-sound environment of your own home.

In the hope of successfully encouraging that choice, which I know is daunting to some, I have added a new page to my 'Homeschool' folder. This new page gives a snapshot of the experiences of my own kids (and of me and Doreen) during our years enjoying this wonderful and successful process.

In particular, this new page has a focus on debunking the "no socialization" myth by which some folks are misled about the homeschooling experience. Find the page here, and please, please give some serious thought to taking direct responsibility for what is going to be put into your child's head this year.


BTW, Teresa Mull has a new and useful "Townhall" article posted with some homeschool academic-performance data and links for further exploration. Find it here. My main homeschool page can be found here.

"A slave is one who waits for someone to come and free him."

-Ezra Pound


Greg Sutton Takes On The Academy

Our liberty rests on the correction of widely-held misunderstandings of the law everywhere they are harbored

WANT TO BE PERMANENTLY FREE? Want to be spared the need to rebut ill-informed erroneous allegations about the taxable character of your earnings, and not have to put up with friends and family rolling their eyes and giving you brain-dead, ignorant eye-rolls and intonations of, "That can't be right!" and serfish advice like, "You can't fight City Hall"?

In addition to the approach for consciousness-raising discussed in the lead article above, consciousness-raising in the intellectual community is also a virtuous path toward the deep-sixing of the "ignorance tax" scheme and the consequent restoration of the republic.

That path is the simplest in the world. All it takes is a little engagement in the academic/intellectual world, setting straight folks who aren't even aware that they are off base when talking about the income tax, and who generally will welcome being corrected.

Once the intellectual community is no longer echoing the mythology that supports the "ignorance tax", that tax scheme will collapse. That's when America wins back the freedom and prosperity the Founders bequeathed to us, and which prevailed for 140 years before understanding of the truth about the income tax was overwhelmed by a wave of misinformation in the middle part of the 20th Century.

GREG SUTTON HAS STEPPED UP and done a little path-clearing. Greg routinely seeks out folks in the academic community who write on the subject of the tax in order to ensure, as the opportunity presents itself, that what gets said (and read by others) is the truth and not the lies. Where possible, Greg drives out the serpents and leaves pots of gold in their place. In battle mode, Greg is a cross between St. Patrick and a high-powered leprechaun.

In his latest effort, Greg has acted to set straight Chris Edwards of the Foundation for Economic Education-- and all of Edwards' readers, now and into the future-- on the real history and nature of the "income" tax. Edwards has posted a worthwhile article, 'The Tax Army Is Three Times Larger than the US Army', but one which unfortunately perpetuates, and more deeply embeds, myths about the "income" tax. Taking advantage of the opportunity to comment routinely available where punditry like Edwards' appears, Greg gently corrects and instructs:

The article is written under the erroneous presumption that the income tax is a direct tax a la the 16th amendment. The first income tax was imposed in 1862. It was an excise and enforced as such. Once an excise always an excise. See Brushaber v U.P.R.R.

The subject matter of an excise is privilege. In the case of the federal income excise tax the subject of the tax is specifically federal privilege, measured by the income that the exercised privilege produces.

The purpose of the 16th Amendment was to overturn the Pollock decision of 1895 which had excluded otherwise excisable income if its source was from property. This ruling had exempted the income of the very Robber Baron class that Congress was specifically attempting to reach with the tax. That being the enormous profits that were being realized from the renting of vast swaths of property adjacent to the tracks granted by Congress to the railroads as one of the perks for constructing them.

The amendment eliminated this court created exemption, returning the tax to its former all inclusive form, 'from whatever source derived'.

During this same time period the German educated intellectuals, for example, Professor E.R.A. Seligman from Columbia U., were utilizing the popularity of intellectual journals to ply their Bismarckian socialism propaganda called Progressivism. This big, aggressive government ideology must necessarily employ direct taxes to fund it.

To these socialist's the income tax was, again necessarily, a direct tax on all that comes in for everyone. In their thinking it is the people that are privileged. They exist in civilized society because of government and the intellectual class that directs its policies. Everyone must pay their fair share for this beneficence.

This is all in opposition to the well established Classical Liberal ideology of property rights and limited government. One reason government stays limited is because it relies on indirect taxation, such as the income excise, to fund itself, avoiding the nationalist tendencies that the economic self-interest created by a direct tax generates.

Seligman and his ilk were spreading dangerous propaganda which was misrepresenting many of the privilege taxes then in use, including the income tax. When the SCOTUS took the bundle of suits known as Brushaber it did so to quell the dangerous lie spread by Seligman, et. al., that the 16th Amendment authorized a direct tax without apportionment.

 The resumption of the tax in 1913, after the ratification of the 16th Amendment, and properly enforced with a much lower exemption threshold, still affected only about 10% of the population. In fact from 1914 to 1940 less than 10%, on average, were affected by the tax.

These statistics show that the tax was not being enforced as a direct tax without apportionment. But with the universal misrepresentation and misapplication of Social Security, the creation of the 1939 IRC as a restatement of existing law, the adoption of the direct tax model for public finance in nearly all institutions of higher learning, the near complete takeover of education by government, the economic, ideological and emotional rigors of WWII, and a propaganda campaign utilizing the talents of Walt Disney, the percentage of the population filing tax returns would jump to over 90% by 1945.

The authority trotted out to fuel this outrageous increase in taxpayers was that the 16th amendment gave Congress authority to tax incomes directly without apportionment. This blatant and audacious resurrection of a lie previously refuted by the SCOTUS demonstrates how confident our corrupt overseers were (and are) in their ability to control the thinking, for our own good, of course, of the American people.

So to make a long story shorter: To dramatically lower the compliance costs of the income tax merely requires that those responsible for its self-assessment and reporting do so with the new found understanding that the income tax is an excise or privilege tax and is enforced as such. Until that time we will be stuck with big, intrusive, over-funded government. Learn more at losthorizons.com.

GREG'S EFFORTS ARE SOME OF THE REAL HAMMER-BLOWS that will restore the republic. I urge everyone reading these words to help by posting follow up comments supporting Greg's post (click here to access the article and the "comments" section); and by seeking out every opportunity to follow in Greg's footsteps with corrective comments and interjections everywhere else that error is holding sway.

Share your efforts with me and I'll share them with the CtC community so that Greg and others can help support YOUR efforts, in turn. It's as simple as this, folks-- the badness is utterly dependent on the preservation of the lies. All that is needed is to take the bushels off our candles, each and every one of us, and drive out the darkness with our light.

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

-Proverbs 25:26

A Fine Victory In Missouri Over 10-Year-Old Liability Allegations

...and a nice boost for the rule of law in America!

I RECEIVED A HEART-WARMING EMAIL THE OTHER DAY sharing a nice victory in using accurate understanding of the income tax to fix some decade-old erroneous allegations that were threatening the well-being of a good American woman. Here's the story:

On May 19, 2016, Missouri was pursuing proposed tax liabilities against S. Y.. The liabilities were related to alleged taxable real estate sales transactions in 2006 totaling $135,500.00, which had been reported to the state DOR by the IRS:

The MDOR had calculated taxes, penalties and interest due of more than $10K in 2009 and had filed a lien for that amount in 2010:



Having recently found CtC (and the Missouri CtC Warriors), however, S. found that she was no longer a deer caught in the headlights, as are so many Americans unfortunate enough to not yet know the truth about the tax.  Quite the contrary; S. was a veritable ninja warrior for the rule of law.

Mindful of the fact that there is no obligation to confine oneself to tax-agency-issued forms, as long as the right information and declarations are made, as explained here, S. crafted a combined Missouri return and educated multi-faceted rebuttal instrument and fired it off to the MDOR.

Just four weeks later, S. was writing this email:

"I just checked my PO Box a lil while ago.  And I had these awaiting me!!!! Am so happy< I thought before reading the information in CtC and joining this awesome group I would have to hire a very good CPA/Attorney to get them off my back.  However, Praise God, I found CTC.  Thank You!!!"

Here's what showed up in S.'s mailbox:




WELL STRUCK, S.! The rule of law is more secure today and the People have regained a bit of their power, thanks to you!!

P. S. S.'s victory joins those of the tens of thousands of other awakened and activated Americans represented here. They are each another 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!

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

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

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

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

Well done, Derek!

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

A Fine, Illustrative Victory

The latest of the 200,000+ government repudiations of the falsehoods Doreen is being ordered to say she believes...


Jaime Mondestin

JAIME HAS SECURED ONE OF THOSE FEDERAL VICTORIES that are especially illustrative of the truth uniquely revealed in CtC. Jaime's refund is of everything withheld from him during 2015 in connection with the income tax, of course, as is the typical experience of CtC-educated filers. But in Jaime's case the only thing that had been withheld were amounts purportedly owed as Social Security and Medicare taxes. Here is Jaime's refund check:

And here is the filing that produced it, complete with the new Form 8965 by which the "Obamacare mandate" is addressed in an educated manner.

THE REASONS FOR THE SIGNIFICANCE of this refund being entirely of FICA withholdings are twofold. One of these reasons is that prior to the appearance of CtC such withholdings had NEVER been recovered and were (and sometimes still are) described by tax agency flacks as not refundable under any circumstances. A refund like Jaime's, of nothing BUT such withholdings, emphasizes that CtC has put a truly myth-shattering knowledge into the hands of its students.

The other reason for the significance of Jaime's FICA-only refund is that one of the foolish cognitive sticking-points keeping a large number of folks in the "tax honesty" community from understanding the tax overall and recognizing that liberty from its misapplication is within their grasp if they would only reach out to CtC and take it up is the idea that FICA taxes are "employment" taxes and that means not "income" taxes. Jaime's filing and refund plainly demonstrates that this is a completely mistaken notion much more quickly and dramatically than can be done by reading CtC and learning why and how this is so.

To put it in simple terms, a picture is worth a thousand words, and Jaime paints a bright picture here.

I WANT TO POINT OUT TWO ADDITIONAL FEATURES of Jaime's filing/claim. First, there is Jaime's thoughtful answer to "question 10" on the Form 4852 he submitted in lieu of the incorrect W-2 produced by the payer which had done the errant withholding of amounts now returned to him by the United States. That question asks what steps Jaime took to secure a W-2 or a corrected W-2 from the errant payer, to which Jaime replies, "None, withhelds are correct."

This is notable in that Jaime has recognized the true nature of the instrument on which he is making this statement-- not a supplication, but a declaration. Jaime is saying he doesn't need a "corrected W-2" (a W-2c), because the data that matters on the original, for his purposes-- the amounts withheld, which he is claiming back-- is already correct; while his declaration as to the amount of "wages" paid is itself sufficient and proper rebuttal and correction of the bad information on the W-2, which the government already has. There's a good and comprehending attitude reflected in Jaime's short answer to question #10.

The other thing worth noting is Jaime's very explicit declaration on that same Form 4852 below the question lines. Jaime lays out with careful and painstaking clarity, and importantly, while avoiding argumentation, just what is to be understood by the tax agency processing his claim.

In my view this sort of declaration is in no way necessary. As we all know, the years have witnessed scores of thousands of similarly-CtC-educated claims which lack such explanations and yet go through the gauntlet of tax agency skepticism and come out the other side with the requested check attached. (1099 rebuttals are somewhat different though, as discussed here.)

Nonetheless, a number of folks have made these declarations with their educated returns (usually as "cover letters"), and I like to see them now and then. These explanations make unmistakable that the processing tax agency was under no misunderstandings when it cut that check you see above. Like the refund being of nothing but FICA (which Jaime very pointedly remarks on in his explanation), claims with this extra degree of "impossible to misunderstand" have the best chance of penetrating the thick walls of CtC-truth-denial by which many Americans continue to be afflicted.

MY SINCEREST CONGRATULATIONS TO JAIME, and my thanks, as well, for his sense of responsibility and respect for the law. This good man is among the true Americans on which the Founders' plan for a Constitutionally-limited republic dedicated to the preservation of individual liberty relies.

I hope I'm adding YOUR name to the ranks of these heroes soon.


P. S. You'll have noted my subheading at the beginning of this post: "The latest of the 200,000+ government repudiations of the falsehoods Doreen is being ordered to say she believes..." I wonder how many of you are aware that Doreen has been ordered to make the false testimony after being released or go back to prison, as a special condition of her "supervised release"? Doesn't that make you wonder why that false testimony is SO important to the law-defiers?

Or rather, shouldn't that make non-CtC-educated folks in the media wonder why it is so important that this one person fill out a tax form saying what the government would like to see upon it? After all, throughout the entire history of the income tax the government has managed to administer the tax without ever once needing this done before. Shouldn't any journalist with half-a-brain be struck with curiosity as to what is different in this case?

Hint: The perpetuation of the "ignorance tax" scheme relies on Americans continuing to buy into the myths that guide their mistaken self-imposition of the tax. Doreen has prominently said, "I don't believe..." and the "ignorance tax" schemers are prominently helpless in the face of that knowledgeable and meaningfully-made declaration.

Doreen is the little boy pointing out the Emperor's nakedness. The empire is desperate to make her change her tune before more good folks are awakened by Doreen and other red-pill-activated Americans and the whole scheme collapses back to its previous modest size, under which America was the freest and most prosperous place the world had ever known.

Maybe you all can bring this to the attention of these fog-enveloped, troll-controlled journalists. (Somehow my emails don't appear to reach many of them...)

A Michigan Version Of The "Watching The Watchmen" Amendment Has Been Proposed


Did you know…

 …The US may be the only country in the world where people must commit perjury in order to owe and pay ‘God’s things to Caesar’?

If you work in the private sector, stop falsely swearing that your private-sector earnings are federal “income”1.  Perjury is a crime.  Exercise the law’s provision for protecting your private-sector earnings from the 154-year-old2 indirect excise known as the federal income tax.  Rebut fraudulent allegations made by your payers regarding the legal nature of your work and the earnings derived therefrom, so that you pay only your fair share.  Join the hundreds of thousands of honest, law-abiding Americans who have been doing so for more than a decade.  Learn how for free at losthorizons.com.

1--“We must reject… …the broad contention submitted in behalf of the government that all receipts—everything that comes in—are income…”.

United States Supreme Court, So. Pacific v. Lowe, 247 U.S. 330, (1918)

2—The income tax in the United States was first instituted into law on July 1, 1862, during Lincoln’s presidency under the excise laws of the United States.   The preamble to the 1939 Internal Revenue Code traces its roots to this original income tax law.

Have I Ever Mentioned That The Revelations Of CtC Are Targeted By Trolls?

FORMER CBS REPORTER SHERYL ATKISSON describes how this kind of dis-information campaign is done. Despite the annoying preliminary 15 seconds or so of advertising, this video of her presentation is very much worth watching:

(H/T to Greg Belcher for finding and forwarding this great presentation.)

Losthorizons.com is one of those websites specifically-targeted by the corrupt interests at Wikipedia described by Atkisson. The behind-the-scenes folks at that site won't allow links on their pages to anything posted at losthorizons.com, nor even just text corrections of misinformation in their pages about the income tax.

That's the least of it. Click here for some specific discussion of the enormous campaign that's been actively spreading false information in hope of discouraging legitimate media attention, as well as men and women simply seeking the truth about the tax and liberty from the scourge of the "ignorance tax".

PLEASE GIVE SOME SERIOUS THOUGHT to the fact that YOU being secure in your own freedom rests on others learning the truth as well, and recognize that it falls to you to help overcome the dis-information campaign. Post and share your videos; share your victories; help silence the agents-provocateur and distraction-injectors whose nonsense is discussed and debunked here; and widely (and frankly, impatiently) share this page, this page and this page, challenging everyone in your address book to disconnect the phone and the TV for an afternoon and get educated.

Doing these things will be what makes it happen, Cap'n.

WANTED! Your Article!!

Sharpen those pens, people!

MY FRIENDS, THIS NEWSLETTER NEEDS your creativity, your clear thinking, and your expressive energy! In short, this newsletter needs your journalism!

I know that writing for public consumption isn't everyone's cup of tea. But those who CAN string a few words together can importantly serve the educated, activist community by writing and submitting thoughtful, well-researched and persuasive articles on certain topics for posting on these pages.

Here are several topics for which submissions are desired:

  • Why the media is silent about the astonishing 12-year history of government acknowledgements of the accuracy of CtC's revelations and its simultaneous efforts to keep Americans from knowing about those revelations.

  • Why educating more Americans about the true history and actual provisions of the income tax is the most important thing that anyone seeking to restrain the state and restore the republic can do today.

  • Why "tax honesty gurus" stay mum about CtC and its unprecedented accomplishments in freeing people from improper application of the tax.

  • Why hunkering down in every-man-for-himself silence in the face of statist and fascist assaults on the rule of law leads to greater harm than what is hunkered-down against; that is, how fearful behavior just strengthens the thing feared.

  • How much better it is to encourage (and practice) bravery, honesty and openness than to counsel (and succumb to) fear, lies and concealment.

Articles should be 1500 words or less, with working titles and author's name at the beginning. Composition should strive for two and three sentence paragraphs organized in the form of a theme paper. Intend to persuade and inspire, not browbeat. Format should be either .doc or .odt. All submissions selected for posting may be subject to editing.

BTW, CtC Warrior Greg Sutton has just had a good educational/inspirational article published here.

Why Aren't People Suing?

SO, I WONDER HOW MANY FOLKS have thought about the fact that the First Amendment prohibits even a bogus "frivolous return penalty" threat, such as the customized "3176C" notices that a few educated filers have received over the years (see here, here and here for some examples)? After all, a "frivolous penalty" threat amounts to a threat by the government to punish someone for saying what the government wishes they would not say (or for not saying what the government wishes they would say).

Even when the threat is entirely reliant on the timidity and cooperation of the target for its effect or an outright hoax, the object of the exercise is to control the target's speech. Thus even when technically toothless it remains a gross violation of the Constitution and the victim's rights.

The threat is also intended to influence the target into at least withdrawing a claim to the refund of withheld or paid-in property, which would then default to government ownership (and really, the threat is meant to coerce an active endorsement of a government claim to the property, giving the appearance that the government's taking control of that property is proper and beyond legal challenge). Thus, these "frivolous penalty" threats are doubly criminal.

AFTER ALL, PROHIBITING INHERENTLY CORRUPT exercises of state power of precisely this sort is the reason we have a "freedom of speech" element in the First Amendment. Americans can't be made to say things for the government's benefit, nor punished for saying things the government finds inconvenient or at its expense-- this is perhaps the most thoroughly-settled aspect of Constitutional law there is. See a nice summary of Supreme Court case-law on this point in sections A., B. and C. of this paper.

Plainly, there is no exception to the amendment's provision whereby the government can simply argue, "We can punish you until you say what we want you to say, either directly or by being silent in the face of the allegations of others, as long as we call your expressions "frivolous", or exercise the coercion in the context of taxation..."

I think people subjected to this rights violation should be furious and in a suing mood, don't you?

(BTW, as an interesting side note, consider the limiting factor built in to the legitimate application of the 'frivolous return penalty" provisions, confining their application to those who are speaking not for themselves, and not as sovereign individuals in their own capacity, but on behalf of someone else, and as a legal duty, not an elective act:

26 USC § 6671 - Rule for application of assessable penalties

 (b) Person defined The term “person”, as used in this subchapter, includes an officer or employee of a corporation, or a member or employee of a partnership, who as such officer, employee, or member is under a duty to perform the act in respect of which the violation occurs.

The relevant speech of those within this specialized sub-class of "person" can perhaps be deemed outside the First Amendment's ambit. By this mechanism the "frivolous return penalty" is harmonized with the Constitution.

By the same token, the First Amendment prohibition of government speech-violations against undistinguished persons means that the sub-class defined at 26 USSC § 6671 must necessarily be confined to those described in that definition, per CtC scholarship. If that sub-class were not so confined, but deemed to extend to any kind of persons other than those circumscribed by a "limited-expansion-only" construction of the definition, the "frivolous penalty" would be unconstitutional.)

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

-Proverbs 25:26

In Passing... Three cheers for Russia, which has stepped up to join Iran in aid of its long-time ally Syria against the noxious "Islamic State" nutcases that have sprung up like toadstools in the wake of the destabilization of the Middle East by the noxious neocon nutcases running Washington for the last 15 years.

More Educated Americans Testify, Showing Why The Deep State Fears CtC

"If the taxpayers of this country ever discovered that we operate on 98% bluff, the entire system will collapse."

-Reported remark by an internal revenue service officer to Sen. Henry E. Bellmon (R. Okla.) on April 15, 1971.


"The Tax Code represents the genius of legal fiction...  The IRS has never really known why people pay the income tax... The IRS encourages voluntary compliance, through FEAR."

-Jack Warren Wade Jr., former IRS officer in charge of the IRS Nationwide Revenue Officer Training Program, in his book ‘When You Owe The IRS’

CtC-EDUCATED, AMERICAN HERITAGE-LOVING grown-up Joe Black shares his testimony here. Tom Romin shares his testimony here. Greg Sutton shares his here. Enjoy Robert Harvey's testimony here. Tom's and Greg's and Robert's words, like those of others here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here and here, and all those whose evidence has been shared here, are solid examples of why the Deep State fears CtC.

It's this simple: If you study CtC you will know the truth about the tax. Further, you will know that you know the truth, beyond any doubt.

ONLY CtC will give you that certainty, because CtC is exclusively and uniquely complete and correct, as can be seen by any of thousands of different acknowledgements of every possible kind, from this to this to this to this.

Most telling, in its own way, is the government robotically resorting for years now to the strawman of falsely ascribing to CtC the ridiculous arguments that "wages are not income" and that only federal, state and local government workers are subject to the tax. This false ascription is then used as the basis for claiming the book is "false and frivolous"-- a lame and transparent dodge begging the question of why the state won't acknowledge what the book REALLY says and then attempt to dispute THAT.

Once you know the truth revealed in CtC, acting in accordance with that truth WILL liberate you from being an ignorance tax serf. This, the deep state fears mightily.

FURTHER, ACTING IN ACCORDANCE WITH THAT deeply-known truth can NEVER legitimately qualify as any kind of a "tax crime", or for any penalties or fines. This is not only because what CtC teaches about the law and the tax is technically and legally correct, but also because all tax crimes are crimes of "intent" and all penalties rest for their legitimacy on "intent".

An educated filing in sincere accordance with what is known and believed to be true and correct cannot be lawfully treated as invalid, criminal or subject to penalty. Any effort by the state to claim otherwise is inherently corrupt.

Nor can any accurate and truthful filing be overcome by any lawful means, which is why the state is so focused on forcing Doreen to declare that she doesn't believe what CtC teaches, with the openly-declared hope that her doing so would discourage other Americans from acting on what they also believe.

LIKE HENRY BELLMON WAS TOLD, the "ignorance tax" scheme relies on bluff-- pretending that the truth is what the government suggests that it is (despite what the law and the courts and every other authority have actually been saying about it for 150 years). And like Jack Warren Wade, Jr. says, the scheme relies on fear-- doing everything possible to make people afraid to act on their scheme-shattering knowledge of the truth.

In short, the "ignorance tax" scheme can only survive if Americans can be bluffed into not seeking out the truth, and if those who learn that truth can be discouraged from acting on that truth.

But those who know the truth, and know they know the truth, cannot not act.

Acting on the truth is a moral imperative, as well as a legal imperative.

The undaunted actions of those who know the truth are "calls" against the bluff. Each "call" ratchets-up the spread of the truth exponentially and forces state acknowledgement of that truth, one way or another; and each such acknowledgment takes America one step closer to freedom from the 75-year state-unleashing, people-restraining "ignorance tax" scheme.

And THAT's why the deep state fears CtC.

"Be the change you want to see in the world."

A New Policy

I HAVE DONE MY BEST to lead this country to liberty from the mis-applied income tax. I have labored hard. I've shed a lot of sweat, a fair bit of blood and more than a few tears. But I seem to be pretty poor at that kind of work, because...

Right now, having just been forced to deliver my beloved bride to a prison camp, I'm bleeding pretty heavily. And yet, when I have asked all of you for what I firmly believe is a necessary resource to move the ball downfield and give my darling wife (and all the rest of us) the best chance at justice and an end to the assault on the rule of law-- simple testimonial videos requiring nothing from any of you but the phone in your pocket and three minutes of speaking from the heart-- I have had only a handful of people answer my call.

I CAN'T KEEP GOING THIS WAY. I have to be able to turn my attention away from writing new persuasive or skepticism-addressing articles week after week, and toward research, analysis and educational presentations that will benefit everyone already in this community. I need time to do some suing, and to bring together the resources and talent toward that end.

As said, it is my firm belief that your testimonial videos are the resource that I need to make big things happen, and they are unquestionably the thing I need to allow me to turn my attention away from trying to get horses to drink at the waterhole to which I have led them. Your words, in your great numbers and all in your own different ways, will do that better than anything I write possibly could.

And yet, you are not providing them, even despite my having been asking you for them for many years now (I renewed my entreaties as a front-page item just lately, in response to the media skepticism over what has been done to Doreen, but I first posted my request for these something along the lines of eight years ago...).

Therefore, with enormous reluctance, I am making portions of this website restricted access only. People have been urging me to do this for years now, telling me I should impose a charge to access my work-product, so as to enable me to keep producing. I have never been inclined to do so. I ask for donations, and will continue to do that, and if they do not come, then I will conclude that my work is of no value to anyone, and I will close shop.

But I now WILL charge a special something for access to some key portions of that work-- testimonial videos, as discussed, described and demonstrated here.

STARTING TODAY, SELECTED PAGES CONSTITUTING primarily "legal resources" pages will require passwords for access, and to get a password, I need your video. Similarly, if an email comes my way asking for guidance or assistance, it had best have a video attached, if I don't already have yours posted.

I hate to play it this way, but I want to win.

I'll tell you a story from when I was coaching my kids in soccer. Both of my kids at a certain age in their careers had run into a wall common to all but the very exceptional. They had gotten to be pretty good, and they wanted to enjoy the benefits of their hard work. But the arrival of this interest coincided with a new self-consciousness which made them reluctant to risk failing and looking foolish. So, they were hanging back from seizing the main chance when it appeared, and driving for the goal.

My solution was to post on the wall of our dining room a couple of simple points about self-discipline, the chief of which is this: You can't score a goal if you don't take a shot.

That's how it is here, too. If you don't stand up, you are laying down, and you'll never score that goal.

Here is what my kids live by now, in their own version of that lesson. I hear it from them all the time as they excel (accompanied by the sound of a father's breast swelling with pride): Go hard, or go home.

You, too. Go hard, or go home. Send those videos.

Do I ask for a lot? I want your victories to post, your financial support, your efforts spreading the word, and your beautiful faces and inspiring words, too. It IS a lot.

But I'll let Frederick Douglas explain:

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

Fear nothing but God.

What Makes YOU A Warrior For The Truth?

We each have our reasons, and our story. It's time, and it's needed, for you to share yours with the world.


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

-Martin Luther King, Jr.

What does it for you?

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


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


Is it the money?


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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




Speak about rights. Speak about morality, and the obligation of a grown-up and responsible person to speak the truth and to enforce the Constitution. Speak about everyone's duty to give to God what is God's, always, and to Caesar only what is really Caesar's. Speak of your obligation to respect yourself, and to look out for the current and future well-being of your children and your fellow citizens. Speak of CtC, and what its information has done for your understanding and resolve. Show the book.


If you have had victories, describe them. Better still, show them, if possible.


Be clear about just what you accomplished: EVERYTHING back-- Social Security, Medicare and all; a "notice of deficiency" closing notice; an on-paper agreement or acknowledgment that your earnings weren't subject to the tax and everything withheld or paid-in was an "overpayment"; a transcript showing all $0s; or whatever happened.


When you speak of state victories, name the state. If you had to overcome balkiness from a tax agency before winning any victory, describe that, too!


If you're in a battle now, speak of your resolve to uphold the law, come what may. If you haven't yet begun to act, speak of your decision to do so, and your plans.


Remember, your purpose is to INSPIRE, ENCOURAGE and ENERGIZE.


If you're dealing with ongoing balkiness, describe that, too, if you wish-- but be sure to explain why you're not discouraged, and why you are not standing down, not slinking back into the barn, and not choosing to endorse the lies.


Mention what you do for a living, whether you're a doctor, homemaker, lawyer, trucker, IT guy or gal, or a retiree or student. Help people understand that the company of grown-up activist Americans they are being invited to join cuts across all demographics and all interests-- with the common denominator being respect for the law and love of the principles on which this great country was founded.


This is your chance to get a LOT accomplished.


We've all had frustrating occasions of trying to explain all this to a friend, neighbor, family member or co-worker, only to pile up against the wall of a mind not yet ready to listen and learn. Here is your chance to address a self-selected audience of folks who have themselves decided that it's time for them to begin paying attention, and have clicked on your testimonial for exactly that reason.


Further, think about this: You want judges, bureaucrats, CPAs, lawyers, the HR people where you work, your pastors, your neighbors and everyone else to acknowledge the truth about the tax openly and straightforwardly. How and why would these folks do this if YOU won't?

You want these folks to learn the truth. Why would they even recognize that there is a truth to be learned if you won't attest to having learned it yourself? You've got to stand up, face forward and chin up and tell these folks that you have studied and checked and verified and seen the evidence and seen the government evasions and you know that the tax is not the capitation that the beneficiary government wants everyone to think it is but a benign, but strictly limited thing, and that they need to study and learn that, too.

Again, if you have victories to show, that's nice, and powerful, too. But you don't have to have victories to display in order to declare your knowledge of what the law says. I've never flown around the world, but I've seen the evidence and considered the arguments, and I'm not hesitant to declare it a sphere...

Even those of you who haven't yet studied CtC have surely read this short document, and have verified everything in it for yourself. You should therefore be declaring its veracity and its message, loud and proud. Again, if you won't say it, how can you hope that others will ever even bother to look at the facts?

Be the change you want to see in the world, or there won't be any change.

So, please make and send those videos right away! You can share them with me via a cloud-based drive space like OneDrive.Live.com or GoogleDrive, or mail DVDs to me at 232 Oriole St., Commerce Twp., Michigan 48382, or even email to me if each file is no more than 20 megs (and you can break a video up if need be-- I can reassemble them). Render as .mpg or mp4, if possible; if not, send them how you have them and I'll make them work.


Remember, the restoration of institutional respect for individual rights and the rule of law depends on enough individuals insisting upon it. Do your part to let those starting to rub the sleep from their eyes know that there is a community already waiting for their fellowship with open arms and open hearts and shining spirits.


See how some of your fellow warriors for the truth have done their parts in videos sent over the years: Forrest Anderson, Brian Harriss, Joe Black, Jeremy Lee, Guy Placencio, Joe H., Robert Harvey, Kennard van Camp, Greg Sutton, Paul Eberle, Tim Kendrick, Christine Schrock, Brady Ness, Barry Sullivan, Brian Farmer, Greg Belcher, Patrick Hart and Ryan Latila, Abbott Morgan, Val Smithson, Sandor Bors, Erik Segelstrom, The Mystery Woman, Matt Zelina, Ralph Romano, Rod Schimdt, Tom Romin, Glenn H., Ms. B., Paul Smith, Patrick Mooney, Derek Cushman, Brendan Trainor and John Arthur.

The Crime of the Misapplied Income Tax


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.)/p>


Please make a habit of clicking on all provided links and at least looking briefly to ensure that the linked page is one with which you are completely familiar from another study session.


Finally, please keep in mind that, annoying though it may seem at first blush (but not, I trust, upon reflection), I constantly tweak material already posted. Obviously this doesn't mean that every page is in flux at all times, but it does mean that if you are directed to a page that IS familiar, it's worthwhile to read it through again if it's been a while since your last having done so.

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

-George Gordon (Lord) Byron
