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

Illuminating anniversaries of this week:

June 29- In 1767, the British Parliament passes the "Townshend Acts", imposing taxes on many common items imported into the American colonies, shifting the payment of public officials from local communities to the British government (out of the new tax revenue), and reaffirming the use of "writs of assistance"-- general warrants used by tax agents to conduct "fishing expedition" searches without probable cause.  These measures prompted extreme reactions and resistance by the colonists, and contributed significantly to the development of revolutionary sentiment.  In 1956, the U.S. Interstate Highway System is born.  In 2006, the United States Supreme Court rules in Hamdan v. Rumsfeld that the Bush administration's plans to try Guantanamo Bay prisoners in military tribunal Star-Chamber proceedings violates both U.S. and international law.

How Stupid Do They Think We Are?- Part II

Pretty stupid indeed, it would seem, as the renewed C19 panic-mongering continues...

BY THE END OF THIS PAST JANUARY, AT LEAST, millions of Americans had been exposed to C19. As I have observed in relevant part elsewhere (on April 13):

"Social distancing" did nothing. At least, as far as stemming any spread of infection is concerned. [Same with masks.]

Long before the "six feet away" stuff [or masks] had become a 24/7 shamanistic drumbeat on every mainstream media outlet, Covid-19, purportedly even-more virulent than the flu, must have spread at least as far as had that more mundane, somehow not panic-inducing disease during the same time. Here is what that means:

By March 14 the US CDC estimated 38,000,000 to 54,000,000 cases of flu since October, 2019-- just in the USA. The vast majority of those cases began during the same period that Covid-19 had reportedly been active at that point.

Thus, by March 16-- BEFORE the "shelter in place" martial law impositions that sprang up like evil liberty, prosperity, and rule-of-law-destroying toadstools-- it can confidently be concluded that far more than 36 - 51 million Americans had already been infected with Covid-19.

Understand, during the three month period prior to March 16, fully a billion people flew on airplanes from everywhere to everywhere-- including tens of millions to all points in the USA from places like Wuhan, Italy, EVERYWHERE. Eventually there was a limited restriction on entry of travelers from Wuhan put in place, but it didn't go into effect until January 31, only imposed a 14-day quarantine, and didn't apply to US citizens or residents.

The next one (limiting entry from travelers from Iran) wasn't until February 29. A few more concerning travel from certain places in Europe only went into effect March 14 (and another concerning Brazil took effect in late May).

Plainly, late March "shelter in place", "social distancing" and "masking" edicts and other associated martial law impositions did nothing to mitigate whatever threat "the pandemic" presented. THEY WERE ALL TOO LATE TO KEEP THAT THREAT FROM BEING FULLY REALIZED.

So, with 36 - 51 million C19 cases going by March 16 (again, the day before the "shelter in place" nonsense began)-- the bulk of them having run their dire course during the three prior months-- how many deaths from C19 purportedly occurred during that period in the USA?

97.

Yes, just 97.

Look at the following table from the CDC's National Center for Health Statistics (the first column, with the figures in bold, is the only one that counts here):

36 - 51 million cases-- which is to say, 36 - 51 million Americans infected with the disease-- and only 97 deaths (and pretty much all of those in nursing homes, involving very old victims afflicted with co-morbidities). Hardly a horror-fest.

Want to dispute my infection-rate analysis? Fine. Go for it.

'Cause here's the thing: 97 dead isn't even a significant case fatality rate, and isn't justification for edicts concerning "shelter in place", "social distancing", "masking" or any other panicky citizen behavior or draconian governmental response if my numbers are off by an order of magnitude. Even at the lower end, that'd only be a death rate of .0027%!

NOW, AM I MAKING THIS CLEAR ENOUGH? We had three months of raging, totally-unchecked C19 infection on a massive scale in America, which produced only 97 deaths. Plainly, THIS IS NOT A VERY DANGEROUS DISEASE.

Numbers of declared C-19 deaths went up starting in Mid-March-- despite no meaningful change in long-since-enormous infection rates. This happened for two intermingled reasons.

First, the CDC issued instructions to the medical profession to count practically everything but blunt-force trauma deaths as "C19 deaths"-- first on March 4 and then reiterated on March 24 to overcome stubborn professional resistance to the bullshit directive (highlighting on both those docs is mine).

The second, related factor bumping up declared C19 deaths starting in Mid March has been the scandalous-- in fact, heinously-criminal-- adoption of deadly and deceptive practices in what came to be called "hot-spots", such as New York, New Jersey, Massachusetts, Illinois, Pennsylvania and Michigan, a handful of states which by themselves ended up producing more than 60% of all declared deaths from C19 as of June 27, 2020.

One of these outrageous, declared-C19-death-producing practices involves mingling sick, briefly-hospitalized elderly patients carrying whatever sent them to the hospital in the first place (which was always assumed to be C19) plus whatever they picked up while there with highly-vulnerable, often co-morbidity-afflicted populations in nursing homes. This practice allowed most of the subsequent routine deaths among the affected nursing home populations to be presumptively classified as C19 deaths (per the CDC guidelines discussed above), and probably increased the death rate at the same time.

Fully 42% of all allegedly C19 deaths in the USA have been from among nursing home populations.

More heinous still has been what some might call the murder-- or at least negligent homicide-- of assumed C19-infected patients in "hot spot" hospitals by misguided or outright irresponsible "treatments" known by medical staff and administrators alike to be death sentences. These particularly include the heavy sedation of the victim, followed by the installation of a "ventilator" by which the victim's lungs are likely to become irreparably damaged over time, leading to death.

However, this "treatment" also leads to a massive subsidy, with the hospital which declares a patient to have C19 getting a, $8,000 Medicare premium over one diagnosed as having the normal coronavirus (the flu), and then an additional $26,000 if that patient is put on a ventilator. Talk about perverse incentives-- and that's just how things played out.

As latitude for classifying patients as C19 victims came on line per the "relaxed" CDC guidelines discussed above, the number of patents admitted with symptoms which could mean nothing but the common flu-- a disease which the CDC believes had infected 38 - 54 million Americans by mid-March, remember-- but who were automatically declared to have C19, even when tests said they did not, skyrocketed.

As the available supply of ventilators rose dramatically in late March, the death rate from declaredly C19 patients on whom they were immediately inflicted rose dramatically, too.*

Unsurprisingly (all this considered), from the point in mid-to-late-March in which all this came together we watched a total death rate of only 97-- over three months combined-- zoom up to 97 declared C19 deaths every hour-and-a-quarter.

It is on the basis of that palpably-fraudulent high-velocity death rate that illegal "shelter in place", "stand by and watch your business crumble", "social distancing", "masking" and "massive inflationary 'bailouts' and subsidies" were imposed upon the better part of America. It is on the media-fanned panicky dread of the same fictional death threat for "too-hasty re-openings" or as a "second wave" that the same lunatic behaviors are being urged upon America once again.

But in light of the actual facts, who cares if there is a "second wave"? Is the insignificant threat of this mild disease worth the continuing destruction of your business, your job, your dignity and liberty, by way of your persistent surrender to these illegal edicts?

"Shelter in place", "social distancing", "masking" and other "lockdown" measures have saved you from nothing. They have merely tested the waters as to how far into self-destructive madness Americans can be driven by a cabal of corrupt politicians and presstitutes at the behest of the 1% who took advantage of the cover to loot the American economy of at least $2 trillion.

IN FACT, IF ANYTHING, "shelter in place", "social distancing" and "masking" have cost all of us a great deal than just the raw economic, cultural and legal devastation they have delivered. A GREAT deal more.

Let's start down this path with some background. Did you know that these notions are the product of a child's science fair project? I'm serious.

In 2006, 14-year-old Laura Glass decided to create a computer model of how contagion spread as her project for the Intel International Science and Engineering Fair in 2006. Her model reasonably showed that shutting down schools in which large numbers of kids were concentrated in close quarters 6-8 hours five days a week would slow the spread of any contagious agent which had appeared in the community-- something for which a computer model was hardly necessary...

But it happened that George W. Bush was all geeked about epidemic preparedness at the time, having recently read a book on the subject, and Laura's dad was a connected guy. He presented little Laura's model to a couple of the folks W. had tasked with contingency planning and after a bit of this and that, "social distancing" and "shut downs" became official federal prescriptions. (You can get more on the story here.)

THIS'D ALL BE A PRETTY CUTE TALE if the policy built on 14-year-old Laura's digital-age version of a papier-mâché volcano hadn't recently served as the rationale for $trillions in deficit spending and inflation... Let's not forget the loss of 20 million jobs, too, and the ruination of tens of thousands of small businesses and the meaningful rule of law.

(And all of that is just in the US. Little Laura's model was applied elsewhere, as well-- severing all manner of supply-chains and trade connections, the ultimate harm from which has yet to be seen.)

But wait; there's much, much more...

In addition to all the aforementioned very bad things, the "official prescription" for coping with a pandemic also damages the immune systems of everyone-- even those who do their best to NOT participate. First of all, social isolation severely damages the immune system on a deeply fundamental level, prompting system shutdowns and resource redirection which makes the victims highly vulnerable to-- viruses, in particular.

Secondly, immune systems need external input-- germs-- from the environment, including other people, in order to stay healthy and strong. Isolation severely weakens those systems and renders people dangerously vulnerable to sickness from any and every coronavirus out there (and there are MANY), as well as every other pathogen.

This second point about immune systems presents an irony, in a way. The sheep following little Laura's prescription are encouraged to pressure grown-ups by shaming them as "endangering others" due to not wearing the masks, etc..

The "endangering others" thing isn't true as regards wearing masks and staying at home-- if you have a mask and gloves on you're not going to catch anything from me whether I'm wearing them or not. But the "endangering others" IS true of those who isolate themselves by those behaviors, and who therefore fail to contribute to the health of other people's immune systems.

Both points about immune systems present yet another unfunny irony: If we see an unusual or unusually-serious disease eruption after "re-opening", whether of C19 or otherwise, it will be because the panicky "shutdowns" have destroyed so many immune systems.

FURTHER, THE "PRESCRIPTION" PRODUCES social pathologies such as suicides, domestic violence, addictions, and a hardening of government's police-state mentality. It is also a petri dish for the cultivation of fake news needed to keep people cooperating despite their powerful instinctive recognition of the "prescription" as hideously harmful-- much more than the threat against which it is intended to defend.

The "prescription" also keeps those who are sick out of care while their illness grows stronger and more dangerous as they "self-quarantine" before seeking help. And those needing care for other medical issues-- cancer treatments, surgeries, and so forth-- are simply made to wait, and to suffer the consequences.

In the end, the "prescription" emanating from little Laura Glass's science fair computer model is likely to kill more Americans** than even the number falsely declared to be C19 fatalities.

IT'S A SIMPLE DEFECT OF ALL hubristic reliance on computer models for policy. The model can't account for what is not anticipated and coded into the program by someone with extremely in-depth knowledge of each factor involved, and how all such factors interact. Such a god-like knowledge is possessed by no human being or team of human beings, where anything other than mere physical properties are concerned.

Plus, even taking a meaningful stab at comprehensive model programming involving variables and variables of the variables is enormously hard work. It's like playing five-dimensional chess in your head and being obliged to work through the whole game to its conclusion, and using only your most honest guesses of what the other guy would do to counter your moves.

As I model the question, computer modelers simply don't attempt this achingly hard and frankly impossible task. Instead, they just spend their time on a persuasive presentation, hoping that their target audience is either too simple-minded to perceive the omissions or has its own interest in a, "just do this and everything will be great" approach.

But everything will NOT be great under little Laura's science fair model, and already is very, very UN-great. Are you going to buy into it again, in response to the new dire reports of "rising numbers of cases" and "too rapid re-openings" and a "second wave"?

All of those things are bullshit.

Rising numbers of cases mean NOTHING. We had millions and millions of cases throughout December, January, February and March with a death count of 97.

The vast majority of all the subsequently reported deaths are not actually C19 deaths. Instead, they are deaths from other causes (many preventable, others not) which have simply been called C19 deaths.

In many cases this mislabeling has possibly been done for money. It seems certain that much of the mislabeling has been contrived in an effort to defend and validate initial professional incompetence and insane policy prescriptions.

I'M GOING TO CLOSE WITH A "FOR INSTANCE" OBSERVATION concerning that initial professional incompetence which should serve well as my final point on why everything associated with the "official prescription" blossoming like a toadstool from little Laura's own computer model should be flushed down the toilet, followed by a vigorous shower (from my "Other Voices" column of May 25, 2020):

Let me give you a very pointed example of why no politician or "expert" should be trusted with control over your decisions and your well-being or that of those dependent on you:

Neil Ferguson is the Imperial College, London, epidemiologist on whose predictions and computer models were adopted and relied upon for justification by Tony Fauci and Donald Trump and everyone else in the command-and-control-you infrastructure. Ferguson predicted 2,200,000 dead in America and 500,000 dead in Britain from C19 if his mitigation policy prescriptions were not followed.

However...

At the time Ferguson made those predictions and they were bought into (or seized upon) by those who then presumed to take control of your movements, purchases, assembly, access to healthcare, etc., his record included predicting:

  • 50,000 dead from "Mad Cow Disease" in Britain in 2002. Fewer than 200 have actually died;

  • 200,000,000 dead worldwide from H5N1 in 2005. So far, it is merely a suspected factor in 455 deaths;

  • 65,000 dead in the UK alone from swine flu, and millions globally, in 2009. The actual death toll in the UK to date is 457, with 18,449 WHO "confirmed" fatalities worldwide.

It was this guy, with this vaudevillian record whose warnings were seized upon as justification for destroying your business, and generating a panic by virtue of which an effort will be made to compel you to install a tracking app on your phone (and punish you for not having it with you and active at all times) and injecting you with a vaccine likely accompanied by a digital ID implant by the sole virtue of which you will be allowed to go out in public, get on an airplane, train or bus, operate a business (including a school or a church), and so on.

Further, it was this guy whose record of abject failures in predicting anything (and who was recently caught ignoring his own "social distancing" recommendations) you were never told about, by Donald Trump or Anthony Fauci or anyone else.

Those people aren't your friends and they aren't your servants. They are your competitors, if not your predators.

AMERICA MUST GROW UP, and that means ending reliance on the good-will and competence of public officials. They have neither. That external, delusional "White Knight" reliance must be replaced with self-reliance, and the downsizing of the state.

We need to shrink the state from today's perception-controlling and society-dominating Leviathan-size back down to Constitutionally-intended size, a dimension which can be derived from looking at the size at which we maintained all our American governments, combined-- federal, state and local-- for about our first 140 years. That responsive and safe governmental size was so lean as to consume less than 10% of GDP on average-- and yet Americans during that time became the most prosperous society in the history of the world, while America remained a real Land of the Free.

Can you imagine what a difference it would make today to shrink Washington down to less than a fifth of its current size and influence? And to shrink the state governments down by 50% or so?

Well, don't just close your eyes and dreamily smile at the thought. Get up and make it happen.

Spread the knowledge you already have about the true nature of the income tax. The simplest way to do this is to share this little document with everyone you can, in every way that you can.

"It is not the function of our Government to keep the citizen from falling into error; it is the function of the citizen to keep the Government from falling into error."

-United States Supreme Court Justice Robert H. Jackson

*Although I haven't stats with which to prove this out, it is my bet that the majority of flu-like symptoms admittances automatically classified as C19 patients and put on ventilators took place in large urban-area hospitals where funding is tighter, a $34,000 premium per bed is more of an incentive, and the population being served is more likely to be minority. If I'm right, this may help explain the apparent imbalance of supposedly C19 deaths among certain ethnic populations. See the very powerful film here for more on this subject.

**There is an erroneous reference and link in this otherwise pretty good recital to an article claiming that HCQ has been found to increase the death rate from C19. This was the declared conclusion of an almost immediately retracted false-data study published in the Lancet.

All governments are run by liars and nothing they say should be believed."

-I. F. Stone

Russia Paying Taliban To Thwart The "Peace Deal"? Not Likely.

Let's apply the ancient wisdom of, "Cui bono?"...

IT'S BEEN BREATHLESSLY REPORTED this past weekend that unnamed sources in the "intelligence community" have asserted that Russia offered bounties to Taliban fighters in Afghanistan to target American soldiers during the peace talks meant to end the US struggle in that particular Asian quicksand. No evidence to support the assertions has apparently been offered or asked for.

I can't say this isn't true, from any personal knowledge; and I can't say it couldn't be true. either. Anything is possible, and however much Vladimir Putin has proven himself a world statesman of great stature over the last twenty years, US provocations have been relentless and serious enough to test the character of a saint, much less that of someone responsible for looking out for the interests of his country.

BUT IT SEEMS TO ME THAT SUCH AN ACT BY RUSSIA would entail considerable downside potential for very little upside. On the other hand, Raytheon and Lockheed-Martin and others of their ilk have a very big downside looming in the prospect of a US withdrawal from the 20-year ordnance-burn gravy-train, and a very big upside on the table both in keeping that withdrawal from happening and in fomenting (or perpetuating) hostility against Russia. The same could be said for any others with an interest in keeping the US encirclement of Iran in place, such as Israel, which certainly would not shrink from a false-flag operation to accomplish that end.

Indeed, the US "intelligence community" itself-- also not one to eschew staging a false-flag event-- has a definite interest in smearing Russia, as a best-defense-is-a-strong-offense play while its past several years of "Russiagate" fabrications continue to suffer scrutiny. This would be a variation on the Clinton campaign re-direct of attention off the damning content of the DNC emails released by WikiLeaks in 2016 and onto the fictional offense of a Russian "hack" to acquire them.

JUST MY THOUGHTS SO FAR, with little to go on, admittedly, except a bit of common sense. Do with them what you will.

This final thought, though: If there really WAS a hostile Russian effort to thwart the peace talks, it would be a reflection of Russia's sound recognition that US en-mirement in Afghanistan has been pointlessly bleeding America for the last two decades (to Russia's relative benefit). We should take heed of that wisdom, regardless of the manner in which it is expressed, and bring those troops home asap.

Still Timely: Not Letting This "Crisis" Go To Waste...

...an important action item opportunity.

FRIENDS, THE BIT OF EASING of the despotic measures to which most of the country has been subjected this spring should not be allowed to bleed off the head of steam you probably had been developing. The offenses happened, and they're far from over. Stay hot.

And while you are all warmed up, and while others, if they're smart, are just as hot, I'd like you to send an email (and Facebook post, or whatever) with the following content to everyone you can (with a request that they pass it along, in turn):

[Name], over the last several months you've watched as over-fed state power has been used to literally destroy classical Western civilization and impose a new despotic paradigm. No dissent or debate permitted-- no permission or agreement sought.

YOU KNOW where this will end up if the arrogant state power being used to make this happen isn't radically diminished in size, influence, resources and popular support, and exposed as an opportunistic exploiter of legal ignorance (an ignorance which it has been nurturing in the average mind for decades).

Those things having not yet happened, you should be quaking in your boots-- and you probably are.

Isn't it time-- and past time-- for you to begin helping to make those desperately-needed defensive changes take place? There is only one way these things can happen short of a who-knows-what we'll-end-up-with explosion of violence. I'm going to show it to you.

Read this little two-page document. Click on the links at the end.

When you're done with that reading, you'll know what to do next.

BTW, REMEMBER, ALSO, THAT EVERY AMERICAN has lately been given a stark lesson in the fact that government officials at all levels will lie to you and violate the law without batting an eye. They will do so any time it serves their agenda, and you don't call them out for it.

If you know anyone who has been persisting in denial on the truth about the income tax, you know such nonsense is usually be grounded in some version or another of, "That can't be true..." or "They would never do something like that...". Now's the time to put a pin in that delusional bubble.

As the C19 hoax has starkly shown, "that" certainly CAN be true, and they certainly WOULD do something like that.

Use this evidence in all your outreach efforts.

Regarding Trolleries

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

 

 

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

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

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

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

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

How To Be A Leader In The CtC Community

It's simple:

KNOW THE TRUTH ABOUT THE TAX IN DETAIL

LEAD BY EXAMPLE

KNOW WHERE TO FIND THE RESOURCES

BE FAMILIAR WITH THE SCAMS, THE MISUNDERSTANDINGS, AND THE TROLL-POLLUTION

TAKE CHARGE IN YOUR STATE FORUM, HELPING EVERYONE TO THINK CLEARLY AND STAY ON TOPIC

All-in-all, just be the sort of person for others that you would go to yourself for trustworthy leadership.

Leadership is a challenge. But it's not complicated, and you can do it.

Are You Having Trouble Spreading The Word??

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

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

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

The "Deadly" HCQ Publishing Scandal

How the world's top medical journals were cynically exploited by Big Pharma.

by Elizabeth Woodworth

SUMMARY

A publishing scandal recently erupted around the use of the anti-malarial drug hydroxychloroquine (HCQ) to treat Covid 19. It is also known as quinine and chloroquine, and is on the WHO list of essential medicines.

The bark of the South American quina-quina tree has been used to treat malaria for 400 years. Quinine, a generic drug costing pennies a dose, is available for purchase online. In rare cases it can cause dizziness and irregular heartbeat.

In late May, 2020, The Lancet published a four-author study claiming that HCQ used in hospitals to treat Covid-19 had been shown conclusively to be a hazard for heart death. The data allegedly covered 96,000 patients in 671 hospitals on six continents.

After the article had spent 13 days in the headlines, dogged by scientific objections, three of the authors retracted it on June 5.

Meanwhile, during an expert closed-door meeting leaked May 24 in France, The Lancet and NEJM editors explained how financially powerful pharmaceutical players were “criminally” corrupting medical science to advance their interests.

Afterword

THE BOGUS LANCET ARTICLE whose corrupt origins Woodworth exposes is the same one discussed in the ** footnote in my lead article in this newsletter. By way of that footnote I identify the Lancet article assertions as the only significant misinformation of which I am aware in the comprehensive BBC piece I reference for its discussion of the likely fatalities and other harms to be expected from "lockdown" measures.

Notably, although the Lancet article has been retracted in disgrace, the BBC article, and the article to which that one links in which the assertions made in the disgraced and retracted Lancet are described, say nothing of the retraction. As a result, the Lancet misinformation continues to do its evil work unimpeded, to the delight of every criminal benefiting from the persistence of the C19 panic, of which there are many.

 The fact is, large swaths of the "political class" fearing blowback for the lawless and deeply unwise policies of the last several months, the "1%" whose giant businesses are capitalizing on the current absence-- and perhaps permanent disappearance-- of Mom & Pop competitors, the "Big Pharma" looking to make a killing selling new C19-related drugs and vaccines, whose machinations Woodworth exposes, and the stockholders of those latter two interests all want the C19 panic to continue. They are joined by those in the medical community who like being called heroes more than they value scrupulous integrity, and every MSM organ who, or which, has spent the entirety of the year fanning the panic with 24/7 hobgoblin-mongering, "lockdown" government PSAs, and smarmy, "We're all in this together" kumbaya crap meant to soothe the imprisoned masses into quiescence while their businesses, jobs, rights and rule of law disintegrated before their eyes.

Every one of these private interests would take a hit, big or small, were it to become unambiguously acknowledged and widely known that the HCQ/Z-Pack/Zinc treatment works, as has been being thoroughly demonstrated in actual valid trials and extremely widespread deployment worldwide (except in the USA) since at least mid-March (or late January if one goes back to the Chinese papers published on the subject then, or even back to the 2005 research showing the efficacy of chloroquine against SARS-CoV).

You, of course, would benefit hugely from the truth about the HCQ treatment being honestly aired. But that won't happen while Leviathan, of which all the interests mentioned above are clients, remains large enough to keep control of the narrative.

The solution, of course, is simple. It just requires you to act, and to VIGOROUSLY encourage others to do so as well.

Here is your tool with which to strike the root. Swing away.

A Little Extra

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..."

Lawyers: It's Way Past Time For You All To Queue Up!

[Y]ou really need to familiarize yourself with Pete Hendrickson's absolutely magnificent work at his website and in his book(s). He has, brilliantly and lucidly, "cracked the code" regarding the federal income EXCISE tax(es)."

-Mark C. Phillips, JD

 

"...I find your work fascinatingly simple to understand."

-Jerry Arnowitz, JD

 

"Your book is a masterpiece!"

-Michael Carver, JD

 

"Received your book yesterday. Started reading at 11 PM, finished at 4 AM." "I have 16 feet (literally 16' 4.5") of documents supporting just about everything in your book." "Your book should be required reading for every lawyer before being admitted to any Bar." "I hope you sell a million of them."

-John O'Neil Green, JD

 

“Thanks again for your efforts, Pete. They mean an awful lot to a lot of people.” “…as an attorney, I am humbled by your knowledge and ability in navigating the law. THANK YOU for your hard work and sacrifice.”

-Eric Smithers, JD

 

"I am an attorney and want to give a testimonial to your book, which I find to be compelling. I am exercising these rights for myself and my adult children. I'm even considering making this my new avenue of law practice."

-Nancy "Ana" Garner, JD

Learn what these colleagues already know, then step forward and become part of a coordinated, mutually-supportive squadron focused on developing strategy and deploying the law in courtrooms across the country. There's a lot of suing that needs doing right now.

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

 

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

 

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

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 and suppressing the truth for years on end, and everybody knows THAT would never happen...

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.
