The Big Con

A few words about the most rewarding lie ever told by a corrupt and well-connected cabal.

BY DESIGN, THE INCOME TAX IS AN EXCISE laid exclusively on the use of federal property or prerogatives (privileges) to make private profits. The tax compels a return to the public purse of a portion of those private benefits, with the amount of tax due measured by the dollar value of the profits produced.

"The income tax... ...is an excise tax with respect to certain activities and privileges which is measured by reference to the income which they produce. The income is not the subject of the tax; it is the basis for determining the amount of tax.”

Treasury Department legislative draftsman F. Morse Hubbard, quoted in testimony to Congress in 1943

The benign and enlightened principle of the income tax made it widely popular when it was widely understood. Indeed, the American people actually amended the federal Constitution in 1913 to allow the resumption of the tax after the Supreme Court erected a road-block to its administration in 1895.

That judicial road-block had been put in place at the urging of the public-resources profiteers by a court filled during a period in which much of the federal government was under the influence of corrupt national railroad interests and their bought members of Congress, all of whom were among the targets of the tax. (See background on that interesting story here.)

Those profiteers were faced with a populist Cleveland administration determined to check or mitigate the inherent corruption involved in their public-resource exploitation and balance the books, so to speak, by recapturing some of the pelf.

Obviously, the threatened diminishment of private profits was less than pleasing to those subject to the tax. But just as obviously, those well-enough connected with the halls of power to be using public stuff to make private benefits are also, by the same token, well-enough connected to influence public policy, and in 1895, the Supreme Court came to the profiteers' rescue.

The people were not pleased, however, and the push toward overruling the court promptly got under way. In 1913, the adoption of the 16th Amendment deep-sixed the Supreme Court's corrupt 1895 judicial dodge (in which the mechanism by which profits were realized-- characterized as their "source"-- was used to treat any associated tax as a property tax).

As a later Supreme Court put it in analyzing the purpose and effect of the amendment:

"[T]he provisions of the Sixteenth Amendment conferred no new power of taxation, but simply prohibited the previous complete and plenary power of income taxation possessed by Congress from the beginning from being taken out of the category of indirect taxation to which it inherently belonged, and being placed in the category of direct taxation subject to apportionment by a consideration of the sources from which the income was derived -- that is, by testing the tax not by what it was, a tax on income, but by a mistaken theory deduced from the origin or source of the income taxed.”

Stanton v. Baltic Mining Co., 240 U.S. 103 (1916)

Now the American people were pleased, but the well-connected profiteers were not. Plan A having been thwarted, the profiteers turned to Plan B, the Big Con.

HERE'S HOW IT WORKS: As the 16th Amendment and the resumption of the income tax approached, those anticipating once again becoming "taxpayers" (who understood that Congress meant to reduce tariffs and rely more heavily on the income tax for general revenue) launched a disinformation campaign. The plan was to mis-educate the American public into a belief that "income" in tax law simply means "what comes in"-- that is, includes the gains enjoyed by anyone engaged in any economic activity, rather than only activities involving the use of public (specifically, federal) property and prerogatives.

The campaign worked hard to conceal the legal character of the tax as an excise (a fact which reveals the true nature of the "income" actually subject to the tax). Instead, it promoted the fiction that the 16th Amendment provided for a direct (non-excise) tax which was simply excused from the "apportionment" requirement imposed on such taxes by the Constitution.

The well-connected profiteers' campaign sought to instill the belief that every American was subject to the tax in the same way as are the profiteers themselves. At the same time a corresponding bureaucratic structure to support this fiction was being created.

By establishing the myth that the tax applies to all economic activity-- even that of the working-class majority-- the well-connected profiteers knew they could count on downward pressure on the tax rates to which their privilege-produced profits would be subject. At the same time the distribution of the overall revenue-burden relied-upon from the tax over a much larger pool of "contributors" diminishes upward pressure on those rates while at the same time diminishing the intensity of collection efforts in the face of well-connected efforts to resist or evade.

And lo, and behold, the profiteers' campaign worked swimmingly! By the mid-1940s, 90% of an American public which previously, throughout the entire 80 years of the tax's existence had filed income tax returns at an annual average rate of less than 9%, was signing sworn statements on 1040s declaring their entirely unprivileged earnings to be "income" by which the tax was to be measured, and paying huge amounts to the United States and State and local treasuries.

The well-connected con artists weren't quite as well off vis-a-vis the tax as they had been after their first exercise of influence in the 1895, but they were MUCH better off than they would be without the con.

SO, SINCE THE EARLY 1940s most Americans have been victims of the Big Con. The truth has been out there for anyone to find, but as the saying goes, "You don't know what you don't know", and as a result, few have even thought to look.

The price for that ignorance, forgivable though it may be, is enormous.

The exploitation of federal privilege has been massive. The corruption inherent in efforts to protect the resulting gains as described above has become deeply-rooted.

At the same time, the federal and union state governments (which have been granted a piece of the federal "income" pie) have grown like Topsy and where once representing a combined burden on GDP of only around 10% of GDP combined now tip the scales at 50% or more. Both are attended with all the pathologies typical to such grotesque obesity.

The average American is forced into a state of permanent cognitive dissonance in regard to the plain words of the Constitution, the law, and all other authorities in regard to the income tax pre-Big Con-campaign, and representations made today in service to, and by victims of, the campaign.

And then, of course, there is all the money extracted from ignorant American men and women which is not actually owed as tax and which goes from serving their interests and purposes to serving the interests and purposes of the well-connected and their political cronies and clients... (Get a sense of what's at stake in this regard by seeing what is recovered by those who learn the truth.)

The Big Con and all its effects is a scandal!

Well, really it's not... (which is a scandal in itself).

But it should be, and if enough folks knew the truth, it would be.

Spread that truth. Share this little document robustly, with encouragement to all recipients to read it through, and to follow the links at the end.

We can sort this out-- it will just take a little counter-campaign.

"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’

Regarding Last Week's "Presidential Debate", South Park Pandemic Special, And Outstanding Ruling By The Michigan Supreme Court

I made it about halfway through the first before turning it off in disgust... The other two things are a different story.

The Debate

ANYBODY WATCH THAT NATIONAL EMBARRASSMENT called a "presidential debate" the other night? You should be interested in this video. It offers a few words from the other party and candidates on every ballot across the country-- the one which the Democan and Republicrat management didn't dare have on stage with Trump and Biden.

Granted, the video is more geared to the spirit than the brain. But being awake to the possibilities is a critically-necessary step on the road to recovery from cynical resignation to having a corrupt 8,000 lb. gorilla rampaging through your life.

Give it a viewing:

***

The Pandemic Special

ALSO LAST WEEK WE HAD a little treat from Trey Parker and Matt Stone: The South Park Pandemic Special'. I hope everyone had a chance to see it, and if you did not, hunt it down! (WARNING: if you're not familiar with South Park, be ready for extreme vulgarity.)

Parker and Stone do good work here. Not the death of a thousand cuts I'd have liked even more, but a good skewering of the C19 insanity nonetheless.

SPOILER ALERT: My one critique of the story is in the not-quite-fair portrayal of Trump as the guy burying evidence of the truth and solutions to the paralyzing misconceptions of the affair by which the state has seized power. I'm no fan of Trump, and he hasn't done much to remedy that sort of corruption, but really, it has been state governors and those standing to gain financially and philosophically from the panic that are the culprits in despotically wreaking destruction on people's lives and liberties and flogging the false narratives keeping this hobgoblin alive.

FIND THE SHOW, shed your chin-diaper, and sit close by friends and family for an hour of varyingly funny and disturbing edutainment. When you're done, think back to Stan's wisdom about what needs to be done and who needs to do it.

Any single man must judge for himself whether circumstances warrant obedience or resistance to the commands of the civil magistrate; we are all qualified, entitled, and morally obliged to evaluate the conduct of our rulers. This political judgment, moreover, is not simply or primarily a right, but like self-preservation, a duty to God. As such it is a judgment that men cannot part with according to the God of Nature. It is the first and foremost of our inalienable rights without which we can preserve no other"

-John Locke

The Supreme Court Ruling

LAST WEEK ENDED ON A REAL HIGH NOTE with the Michigan Supreme Court issuing an opinion in response to a certified question from a federal court upholding the position of the Michigan Liberty Key (and of all the other state Liberty Keys found in the same post, btw). The court ruled unanimously that all "executive orders" of Governor Gretchen Whitmer issued since April 30 are void, and by a majority that the Emergency Powers of Governor Act of 1945, under the purported auspices of which all those orders had been issued, is unconstitutional-- for exactly the reasons given in the Liberty Key.

The only thing marring this overall outstanding outcome is purely cosmetic; it is the despicable partisan corruption of three Democrat members of the court who somehow insist that the language of Article IV, § 1 and Article III, § 2 of the Michigan Constitution: "[T]the legislative power of the State of Michigan is vested in a senate and a house of representatives" and, "No person exercising powers of one branch shall exercise powers properly belonging to another branch", doesn't mean what it plainly says.

I hope the people of Michigan get the message here: Your businesses and livelihoods and well-being and dignity have all been destroyed this year by a bunch of ILLEGAL ORDERS from Gretchen Whitmer and Co. The same is true across the country-- different villains, but the same offenses.

Everyone harmed by these illegal orders-- as described above, and through the loss of loved ones to suicide and alcoholism and other pathologies attendant upon isolation and oppression-- should be storming the statehouses, figuratively, if not literally.

SINCE THE RULING there has been much wailing and gnashing of teeth in the state capital and elsewhere among those finding themselves to benefit or get satisfaction from the ongoing state of panic and habits and displays of submission to arbitrary authority encouraged by mask-wearing orders and the like. There have also been expressions of defiance and denial.

Some of Whitmer's supporters have promoted the notion that the ruling of the Supreme Court doesn't have any effect for 21 days, during which a motion for rehearing can be filed. Since such a motion would seek rehearing before the same court that just definitively ruled, none is likely to be attempted, and any that was would surely fail. Since unconstitutional orders do not become void upon being ruled so, but are from their inception, those orders are as effectively dead right now as they would be 21 days from now, or during the pendency of any rehearing proceedings.

Indeed, the Supreme Court, in its ruling, says it plainly: "[T]he executive orders issued by the Governor in response to the COVID-19 pandemic now lack any basis under Michigan law." Opinion, p.3 (Emphasis added.)

Whitmer fellow traveler and Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel just this morning tried another approach at dodging the reality of the Supreme Court ruling and clinging to her cabal's delusions. Nessel made the absurd defiant announcement that while citations and punishments for "violations" of Whitmer's illegal orders will no longer be issued, punishments for "violations" committed prior to the Supreme Court ruling will continue to be pursued and imposed.

One almost (but not quite) must feel sorry for Nessel. This risible expression of lunacy suggests that she is unfit for her office even on merely a lack of academic credentials, considering the legal facts:

The General rule is that an unconstitutional statute, though having the form and name of law is in reality no law, but is wholly void, and ineffective for any purpose; since unconstitutionality dates from the time of it's enactment and not merely from the date of the decision so branding it. An unconstitutional law, in legal contemplation, is as inoperative as if it had never been passed. Such a statute leaves the question that it purports to settle just as it would be had the statute not been enacted.

No repeal of an enactment is necessary, since an unconstitutional law is void. The general principles follow that it imposes no duties, confers no rights, creates no office, bestows no power or authority on anyone, affords no protection, and justifies no acts performed under it.

16 Am Jur 2d, Sec 256

ANOTHER RESPONSE by the thwarted Covidiot crowd has been a sudden issuance of local public health department duplicates of Whitmer's illegal orders. But of course, these identical efforts by local executive branch officials fall to the exact reasoning by which those of "The Big Gretch" (as she is amusingly known by those in her law-defying gang) have been found void.

(Further, my study of the omnibus don't-think-anything-is-going-to-change directive issued by my own county Health Officer indicates that not only is it void for the reasons given above, even if that were not so it exceeds the plain authority granted in the act she invokes in the attempt. Apparently the hope is that the average citizen won't know how to read a statute.)

Doubtless more such nonsense will follow; hopefully the average Michigan citizen-- those who hadn't already been doing so-- will pay the nonsense no mind and will stand up and resume the life of the Brave and the Free without further ado.

I urge everyone to share this post as widely as possible and as quickly as possible.

Let's Have A Show Of Hands...

It's time for a pop quiz!!

I'M KIDDING ABOUT THE POP QUIZ (but those wanting to try their hand can find the Quiz Page here). I'm serious about the "show of hands" thing, though.

What I want to know is how many of you actually did something with the information I shared with you in the 'Shame The Devil' article in last Monday's Mid-Edition Update. I hope it's quite a few of you, but I'd like to know either way.

I worry that folks are not understanding that it is the fiction of "massive fatalities from C19" that is perpetuating the ongoing erosion of our liberties, our livelihoods, and our rule of law. It is purely because lots of Americans believe that C19 has killed 200,000+ of their fellows (and could get them, or their loved ones next, anytime) that masks and "social distancing" and denial of access to institutions and offices, and suppression of political gatherings, and all the other tyrannies and ruinations great and small are being tolerated and even defended by the fearful.

Thus, the singular solution to all the destruction is the widespread distribution of the fact that C19 has NOT been a ravaging plague against which any measure should be accepted, at whatever cost. The proof of that is presented in that article of last week (and in greater depth in this piece, btw).

Again, if you want the madness and destruction of liberty and prosperity to stop, you MUST show people that they are being scammed by the panic-mongers. Nothing else will do it.

ONLY ONCE PEOPLE ARE FREE OF THE FEAR will their brains resume working and they will again become able to see that the only real "crisis" we face is the threat of continuing harm from those intent on perpetuating and exploiting the pretense that we face a public health crisis.

Only once they are free of the fear will people be able to recognize the disastrous threat of the precedent being created that anyone alleged to be a potential threat to others comes under the righteous pre-emptive control of the state. Only once free of the fear will people be able to think about where that path leads, or where it ends.

Only once they are free of the fear will people be able to remember that the good health of Liberty and the rule of law are FAR more important to our well-being than avoiding any virus, no matter how ravenous.

Free people of that fear.

Give them the facts about the fatality figures.

You need make no arguments about why the lying is being done about those figures, or anything else, and shouldn't even bother trying. Just take away the panic from the false fatality figures.

Once you've fixed the false narrative about great numbers of deaths, people will again start thinking about the other things on their own. By the same token, until that fear is gone, nothing else will penetrate, no matter how vigorously you point it out.

So, take away that fear!

And understand, YOU have to do this. No one else will.

Not Letting This "Crisis" Go To Waste...

...an important action item opportunity.

FRIENDS, THE SPORADIC BITS OF EASING of the despotic measures to which most of the country has been subjected this year 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...

Will The Pandemic Panic Card Win In 2020?

by James Bovard

"People want to be safe," Joe Biden repeatedly declared in Tuesday night’s debate. The 2020 presidential race could turn into a referendum on whether vastly increasing government power can provide “freedom from fear.” This has been a recurring theme in recent American history that consistently brings out the worst in both politicians and voters.

The 2020 presidential campaign thus far has plenty of unpleasant parallels to 9/11 and the 2004 election. The terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001 were the biggest intelligence failure by U.S. government agencies since Pearl Harbor. The Central Intelligence Agency and the Federal Bureau of Investigation ignored bushels of evidence of an international conspiracy and a bucket of warnings that Arabs with terrorist connections were receiving pilot training inside the U.S. Yet, after the attacks terrified the nation, polls speedily showed a doubling in the percentage of Americans who trusted government to “do the right thing.” The media fanned this blind faith as if it was the high road to public safety. President George W. Bush exploited that credulity to seize far more power and to deceive the nation into war against Iraq.

While Bush is now being lionized by the establishment media (thanks to his criticisms of Trump), few people recall that he ran the most fear-mongering presidential reelection campaign in modern American history. Bush 2004 campaign ads showed firemen carrying a flag-draped corpse from the rubble at Ground Zero in New York and a pack of wolves coming to attack home viewers as an announcer warned that “weakness attracts those who are waiting to do America harm.” One commentator suggested that the ad hinted that voters would be eaten by wolves if John Kerry won.

Just before 2004 Election Day a senior GOP strategist told the New York Daily News that “anything that makes people nervous about their personal safety helps Bush.” People who saw terrorism as the biggest issue in the 2004 election voted for Bush by a 6 to 1 margin. Moises Naim, editor of Foreign Policy, observed that the Bush campaign was “using the fear factor almost exclusively. This is a highly researched decision with all the tools of public opinion management. It’s nothing but a reflection that it works.”

Like the federal failures preceding the 9/11 attacks, the Covid pandemic was far more damaging because of testing and other blunders by the Centers for Disease Control and Food and Drug Administration. The World Health Organization spurred disastrous policies by forecasting a mortality that was 50 times higher than the rate the U.S. experienced. The pointless, punitive lockdowns imposed by governors and mayors disrupted hundreds of millions of American lives while doing little or nothing to curb the spread of the virus to seven million Americans. In the same way that Bush lionized federal agencies after 9/11 despite their failures to prevent the attacks, Biden and his media allies are pushing for blind faith in “data and science” – regardless of the debacles we have seen this year.

One epidemiologist suggests that Covid-19 should actually be called SARS-NoV-3. Biden and the Democratic Party are seeking power by asking voters to hold Trump personally responsible for more than 200,000 Americans dying from the pandemic. In his public comments, Biden has repeatedly wildly exaggerated the death toll, publicly asserting that millions of Americans have been killed by Covid-19. It is difficult to know if Biden was intentionally misleading audiences or was momentarily clueless.

Afterword

OK, SO THIS 'OTHER VOICE' is just an reiteration of what I've been saying on these pages, the Mid-Edition Updates, and elsewhere since March. Generally I like to offer articles in this space that add new information or perspectives which advance and contribute to arguments, rather than simple echoes and emphases of what has already been said, but really, the "pandemic" insanity is so hugely and uniquely dangerous that exceptions in that regard are appropriate.

Further, I am disquieted by the sense that too many folks aren't taking the danger of the "pandemic" panic-attack seriously-- or don't recognize it. At the risk of unpleasant stridency: THIS ATTACK IS HUGELY DANGEROUS!!!

This pandemic panic-attack is insidious in its intellectual rationale and its ability to mobilize on its behalf the instinctive fear-factor and its hind-brain reflexive responses. Those hind-brain responses shut down cognition and generate a lemming-like mindless acceptance-- and even support-- for whatever the reptilian brains of would-be tyrants care to offer as safety measures, however false or unneeded, and however destructive of liberty and permanently-erosive of the rule of law they may be.

The peril to the American way of life from this pandemic panic-attack is greater than anything anyone alive has ever faced. Too few seem to understand this.

Too many Americans are running screaming for the closet in fear of C19, when all should be running screaming in anger, torches and pitchforks in hand, toward those pushing the panic.

THIS COMMUNITY NEEDS TO GET OUT and GET LOUD debunking and denouncing the false narrative of a deadly viral peril. Until that pretense has been stripped of its potency, all America-- even all of Western Civilization-- is at risk of collapse. The ratchet-up of state power and the ratchet-down of individual autonomy on the table from this particular kind of hobgoblin assault is unlike any other.

In particular (and to get this afterword back on track with the theme of the article to which it relates), it needs to be made as clear as possible to all candidates and pollsters and media that fear of C19 is NOT an issue for you as a voter or as an American, and that any candidate or party that treats it as such will be denied your support and your vote.

We need to make C19 hobgoblin-flogging the hot potato issue that every candidate, party and talking head tries to be the fastest to drop.

Staying silent about this means becoming a permanent victim of the panic-attack agenda. Don't do it.

IN ADDITION TO DENOUNCING the pandemic panic-mongering, btw, spread the means by which the Leviathan state, which will otherwise be used to enforce the evils of the attack, can and must be shrunk to a more harmless size. Even if the current hobgoblin effort fails, there will always be a next one. The only real security from such despotic assaults is to keep the enforcement mechanism upon which they all rely small and relatively insufficient for the task.

Here is the introduction document by which anyone can learn the critical importance, the promise and the unstoppable character of the "shrinking Leviathan" solution.

I wish that you would at least share them with others, even if you cannot see why you should bother.

Let your recipient make his or her OWN mind up on whether the sharing was worthwhile. You might end up pleasantly surprised-- people grow under the right conditions, and these are now very much the right conditions.

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.
