Thinking Of Getting "Vaccinated"?
Watch a quick 15-minute video
by someone who knows whereof he speaks
before you rollup that sleeve.
PLEASE LISTEN TO A FEW SENSIBLE WORDS about
the "vaccines" being pushed hard
on everyone (which are delivered by an expert-- in the
entertaining sarcasm and moving emotion):
Now, just to summarize the key
A "vaccine" that doesn't
prompt antibody production and render
one incapable of becoming infected (and
thus incapable of transmitting) is not a
vaccine at all;
ubiquitously-flogged "vaccines" are
complete unknowns as to their safety and
efficacy; and, in fact,
they are entirely incapable
of being legitimately declared safe and
effective since they have yet to
complete a single phase of meaningful
trial at any level-- especially
including long-term or late-onset
ALTHOUGH A VERY DARK THOUGHT
INDEED, in light of the foregoing, one has
to at least glancingly wonder if the
protracted C19 scheme is not just what it
looks like. Maybe it's not just a
destabilization contrivance facilitating a
coup d'état while diverting a huge amount of
public wealth into private pockets by way of
government-bought and government-promoted
Perhaps the C19 scheme is also
a deeper and darker project, by which
another interest of those acting to seize
control of America and break down her
individual liberty and rule-of-law engines
of prosperity on behalf of "climate change"
fantasies-- under the label "The
Great Reset"-- is meant to be realized.
That other interest is in
a reduced human footprint on Earth.
Maybe the "experimental
vaccine" being pushed on everyone around the
world on the basis of the
manifestly-ridiculous desperate need
to fight off what is at most just the
threat-equivalent of any routine-- and even
notably mild-- strain of influenza will, in
fact, have the intended effect of some
number of premature deaths (as we are
already seeing), and also that of
diminishing or even eliminating fertility in
its victims, at some point after it is
Seems like quite a stretch, I
know, and I'm not laying down a marker,
here. I'm just following the breadcrumbs.
After all, when you look at
the actual facts of, and related to, the
"dire virus" narrative, it's perfectly
clear that quelling COVID-19 is not, itself,
a rational justification for a massive
drumbeat on behalf of even a
thoroughly-proven efficacious and real
vaccine, much less for mass injections of an
unproven, admittedly non-vaccinating
biological agent. Since quelling the mild
threat of C19 is not a credible real reason
for the "vaccine" push (and since the
"vaccine" offers no benefit to the
destabilization agenda), there has to be
some other interest being served.
Maybe it's just the money, of
course. But the big voices pushing the
project don't really need the money, or
don't even really stand to make any of it
(as in the case of the MSM)....
Anyway, again, I'm just
spitballin' and channeling a bit of the
Philip K. Dick on which I burned some time
in my youth. In time, I'm sure I'll be shown
to be completely paranoid.
There is no safety for honest
men but by believing all possible evil of

THIS VIDEO PROJECTS THE PROGRESS of a nuclear exchange between Russia and

be, as well as sobering and instructive. My only
criticisms are, first of all, that it fails to
account for the imbalance that will now be present
in any such exchange due to
the new Russian
Secondly, the video fails to account
for China's contribution to the exchange against the
US, which is a virtual certainty. China knows that
if Russia goes, and the US survives, it goes soon
after. So, that will not be allowed to happen.

Important guest observations
and commentary with an important afterword
by Yours Truly
The Mainstream Bubble
by Ralf Arnold, translated by
At the beginning of
the already memorable year 2020, a term
forced its way into public and private
consciousness, which should increasingly
determine and overshadow all of our lives:
The “novel corona virus”, also called
SARS-CoV-2. The name was officially
announced by the WHO on February 11th. After
that everything happened in quick
At first I saw the
pictures of Chinese people with masks only
in the Tagesschau (the flagship evening news
program by ARD, one of the two main public
broadcasters in Germany; S.R.), which was
not an unusual sight, but soon corona also
reached our newsroom.
On the day when the
first suspected corona case surfaced in our
region, I was urged by our news chief to use
it as a “lead story”, i.e. as the first
report in the next news program.
At that time I was
already extremely skeptical and found it
excessive to use a mere suspected case as
the lead story. However, I couldn’t escape
the general excitement around me and put the
message on “one”. But a bad feeling remained
and that should intensify massively over the
next few weeks.
A dynamic set in
that seemed unstoppable.
More and more
suspected cases, then confirmed corona
cases, at some point the first death in
Germany, some time later the first in our
region. And more and more I noticed that not
only colleagues, but also people in my
private environment let themselves be
infected by a vague fear and even panic.
Not that I
dismissed the deaths, the so-called “corona
deaths”, but didn’t we have many deaths in
every flu epidemic, especially among the
elderly? I checked our archives and found
that we had only a handful of reports in
three months during the 2018 flu epidemic.
More than 25,000 people are said to have
died of the flu at that time.
The now famous
Johns Hopkins University dashboard was
quickly featured on all television and
online news. The so-called “new infections”
were simply accumulated on this. It became
clear to me that the graph with the
constantly rising curve contained more
psychological effects rather than factual
information. In this way the curve could
never sink again, in the best case it would
stay horizontal. But that didn’t seem to
Part of the basic
training of a journalist is that he never
reports figures without meaningful
reference. He must always provide
comparisons, references and
proportionalities so that the viewer /
listener / reader can contextualise the
information. I stuck to it for many years,
and it seemed a matter of course for other
journalists too. However, I saw this basic
principle practically vanish into thin air
in the first weeks of the pandemic. Absolute
numbers, always only absolute numbers,
without any meaningful reference.
To this day, people
like to say that the USA is the country most
severely affected by corona, with mere
reference to the absolute numbers of
infections and deaths, regardless of the
size of the population, to which the numbers
are rarely put in relation.
RALF ARNOLD GIVES A GREAT ANALYSIS of
the perverse chorus-like behavior of a mainstream
media that has, in regard to the C19 narrative, utterly lost all connection with the
principles of actual journalism, nicely summarized
by Arnold's quote of journalist Hanns-Joachim
You can recognize a good
journalist by the fact that he does not make
common cause with anything, not even with a
good cause; that he is everywhere, but
doesn’t belong anywhere.
And as Arnold points out, the
same dynamics of the C19
propaganda-and-hysteria-mongering-fest which he
explains and recites for us in detail can be seen at
work in many prior instances of media-driven mania.
These include flash-in-the-pan frenzies like
day-care-Satanism-and-child-abuse lunacy of
the late 1980s as well as sustained distortions of public policy and popular culture,
like "Russiagate" and its subsequent
spin-offs, or the endless lies about, and
resultant hostility toward, Iran.
A very worthwhile lesson,
My one critique is Arnold's
failure to focus on the degree to which the
media behavior in the case of C19 hysteria,
at least (if not others, such as the
9/11/Iraq invasion/etc. affair), was a
result of manipulation by deep state actors,
a la "Operation
Mockingbird" or its kin (including
similar projects undertaken by private
interests). Perhaps this is due to media
consolidation in Germany-- and therefore the
ease with which media is manipulated-- being
less than is true here in America since the
Clinton administration, and less a matter of
note for folks like Arnold.
That one caveat aside, Arnold
has done the world a great service with his
analysis. Everyone who read his piece
through will be well-defended against the
eyewash that will continue to be served up
to the credulous and naive.
Everyone who has read through
Arnold's piece will also be well-equipped to
counteract the effect of the eyewash upon
others, and I hope everyone steps up to that
BUT WAIT, THERE'S MORE! AT THE SAME TIME THAT YOU
BATTLE THE C19 propaganda, don't neglect the overall
solution to the abuse of state power against
your liberties. That overall solution just requires
behaving like a grown-up and using the
Leviathan-shrinking solution put in place
by America's Founders in anticipation of
just the sort of corrupt manipulation of
public perceptions that reigns
Implemented on a sufficient
scale, that solution shrinks the state and renders
those in control of the gnarly thing incapable of
doing great harm, regardless of the
weaknesses of the political class.
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.
When I have asked all of you for what I
firmly believe is a necessary resource to move the ball
downfield and give all 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. This,
despite my having been asking you for them for many

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
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 at spreading
the word, and your beautiful faces and inspiring words,
too. It IS a lot.
But it's not too much. I'll let Thomas Paine explain:
"Tyranny, like hell, is not easily conquered;
yet we have this consolation with us, that the harder
the conflict, the more glorious the triumph. What we
obtain too cheaply, we esteem too lightly. Heaven knows
how to put a proper price on its goods; and it would
be strange indeed, if so celestial an article as freedom
should not be highly rated.”
We each have our reasons, and our story.
It's time, and it's needed, for you to share yours with

"The day we see truth and do not speak

-Martin Luther King, Jr.

Is it simply because no moral and upstanding

own rights as a human being, who is not and cannot be

Maybe it's just simple respect for your

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?

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

It's time to take off the bushel and

I would like you to think about what it
is that motivates you for a few moments (or all day,

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

you feel, and explaining what inspires and motivates

Dress "business casual". Be well-groomed.
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. If you need to go
longer to really say your piece, go for it (but long
or short I may edit if something strikes me as
wandering or off-key or unacceptable).
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.
Don't talk to ME, or to others in the
CtC-educated community. Make remarks that are suited
to the NON-CtC-educated community, and at the same
time, be mindful 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.
Remember: INSPIRE, ENCOURAGE, ENERGIZE.
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--
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. Don't get
into details-- your audience is going to have no
idea what a "LTR3176" is, and you will NOT be
capable of explaining it adequately. This is an
subject area concerning which you should speak from
the heart, not the head.
If you haven't
yet begun to act, share the reasons for your decision to do so, and
Remember, your purpose is to INSPIRE, ENCOURAGE
Watch your own video after you
record it and ask yourself: Putting yourself
in the place of someone completely immersed
in "the matrix"-- oblivious to any notions
that you might have been a victim of an
"ignorance tax", and comfortable with the
status quo-- would the video you just made
encourage you to push aside your comforting
illusions and learn the liberating truth? If
not, try again.
Identify yourself. Anonymity is for criminals and self-doubters, not
warriors. Naming yourself is a requirement, and your
name will appear as a subtitle on the video when I
prepare it for posting, in any event.
Mention what you do for a living, whether
you're a doctor, homemaker, lawyer, trucker, IT guy
or gal, 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, 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.

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 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
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:
rode a Bob's Bicycle a total of _____ miles
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:

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 Warriors and so on are obvious exceptions to this general
rule. On the other hand, a link to the victory
Highlights or 'Every
Which Way But Loose' pages, which might seem like such exceptions,
are not. The special selection of victories on those pages, and
the filed docs and tax-agency correspondences included therewith,
themselves constitute highly instructive material which merits careful
attention. Thus care needs to be taken in all cases.)
Please make a habit of clicking on all provided links and at least
looking briefly to ensure that the linked page is one with which
you are completely familiar from another study session.
Finally, please keep in mind that, annoying though it may seem at
first blush (but not, I trust, upon reflection), I constantly tweak
material already posted. Obviously this doesn't mean that every
page is in flux at all times, but it does mean that if you are directed
to a page that IS familiar, it's worthwhile to read it through again
if it's been a while since your last having done so.

“When principles that run against your
deepest convictions begin to win the day, then battle
is your calling, and peace has become sin; you must,
at the price of dearest peace, lay your convictions
bare before friend and enemy, with all the fire of your
"Power concedes nothing without a demand.
It never did and it never will. Find out just what any
people will quietly submit to and you have the exact
measure of the injustice and wrong which will be imposed
on them, and these will continue till they have been
resisted with either words or blows, or with both. The
limits of tyrants are prescribed by the endurance of
those whom they suppress."

"Never must thou take up a false cry, or join hands
with the guilty by giving false witness in their favor. Never must
thou follow with the crowd in doing wrong, or be swayed by many
voices so as to give false judgment; even pity for the poor must
not sway thee when judgment is to be given."
