Even though other things continue to demand attention, it is "tax time" again,
March 1- In 1781, the Continental Congress adopts the Articles
of Confederation. This day in 1803 is designated as that of Ohio's admission to
the union as the 17th of the several states, but the actual congressional action
on the admission didn't take place until August 7, 1953. In 1815, Napoleon
Bonaparte returns to France after escaping his imprisonment on Elba. In 1867,
Nebraska is admitted to the union as the 37th of the several states (36th,
really-- see the Ohio entry above). In 1872, Yellowstone becomes the first
United States park. In 1912, Albert Berry makes the first parachute jump from
an aircraft in flight. In 1932, the son of aviator Charles Lindbergh is
kidnapped. In 1941, the first FM radio station in America begins broadcasting
(WSM-FM in Nashville, Tennessee). In 1954, Puerto Rican nationalists open fire
on United States representatives from the visitor's gallery during a session of
Congress, wounding five. In 1966, the Soviet Venera 3 space craft becomes the
first to land (by crashing) on the surface of another planet. In 1971, the
Weather Underground sets off a bomb in a men's room in the U.S. Capitol
building. In 1974, seven suspects are charged with conspiracy to obstruct
justice in connection with the Watergate break-in. In 2014, eight assailants
armed with knives massacred 29 people and left another 140 wounded in an attack
in the Chinese city of Kumming. Predictable calls for strengthened "knife
control" laws echoed throughout statist lairs across America.

CtC-Educated Americans Continue To Uphold The
Rule Of Law!
...and continue to shrink the ever-more rogue, ever-more
dangerous Leviathan state.
AS ALL OF YOU WILL BE VERY CONSCIOUS, for the last year I
have been focused almost exclusively on the raging fires of the C19
pretense, including (among others):
absurd contrivances meant to give this relatively insignificant
virus the appearance of a dire threat before which all else must
illegal "remediation" edicts by which Kool-Aid-drinking
Americans are made perpetually off-balance, distracted and blind to
the totalitarianism to which they are being acclimated;
the crass and possibly sinister exploitation of an
engineered demand for "vaccines"
against the ridiculously overblown problem;
the recent election fraud for the accomplishment of
which the C19 pretenses were leveraged and by which a buffoonish and
president who is nonetheless un-co-opted into this particular
was replaced with one entirely co-opted into these pretenses
and the agendas they serve; and
the extremely sinister aggregation of most
wide-reach media into monolithic agency on behalf of the narratives
supporting all of the above and active suppression of competing or
contradictory views, no matter how well-grounded.
These intense barrages of propaganda and corruption have
opened hemorrhages by which America is being bled-out before our eyes.
The stakes in our management of these assaults are as high
as they can be. Allowed to continue, the proposition that "official"
declaration of a public health crisis can legitimize any one or all of
the already-issued infringements or diktats regarding travel, commerce,
assembly, equipage, bodily integrity, dissent, or any looming in the
future will mean the utter ruin of the great American experiment in recognizing individual sovereignty as
the only proper political principle upon which legitimate government can
HOWEVER, AS MUCH AS THE AFOREMENTIONED ASSAULTS remain the
most immediate concern upon which American attention should be focused,
it's also "tax time". That coincidence brings into better view one of
the key opportunities ready at hand for all Americans wanting to stand
up on behalf of the rule of law and, at a minimum, stop paying for the
assaults to which they and their way of life are being subjected.
I speak, of course, of every Americans' opportunity to
properly invoke the law regarding the income tax and retain all of their
earnings or recover money taken from them under the fictional (and
frankly, ridiculous) notion that their grandparents inexplicably
sold themselves and their descendants into tax serfdom in 1913.
As used to be my frequent practice until more pressing
matters pushed it aside, today we're going to celebrate another batch of
good American men and women doing exactly that important work, and enjoy
the evidence of their accomplishments.
LET'S START WITH Ryan MacCubbin. Over the
last few months Ryan has added to his previous victories with another
three complete refunds of everything taken from his earnings and given
over to New Mexico under his workplace's mistaken notion that Ryan's
activities were taxable. Here are Ryan's latest victories in standing up
for the rule of law, in the order secured:
Kevin Dacey has also been standing up for
the law, and shares his victory securing a complete refund of everything
taken from him and given over to Uncle Sam during 2019-- Social
security, Medicare and all--, plus interest:
WE'RE GOING TO FINISH today's accolades with two rather
victories for the rule of law. First there is the victory five weeks or
so ago by Andrew MacTaggart over Pennsylvania's claim
that Andrew owed taxes on his 2019 earnings.
The story begins with Andrew's 2019 Pennsylvania filing,
which can be seen
here. You will note that Andrew had had nothing withheld and given
to the state, and so claimed no refund, but did rebut claims by those
for whom he worked in 2019 that he had been paid $77K+ in tax-relevant
"wages" and self-assessed accordingly: $0. You will also note that
unlike the typical educated filing Andrew precedes his return with a
very explicit statement, and even had his express rebuttal of the
erroneous characterization of his earnings sworn and notarized.
These unusual (and, truth be told, unnecessary) steps are
reflective of the fact that in past years, Andrew had been met with
seriously balky and games-playing bureaucrats at the Pennsylvania Dept.
of Revenue. Forewarned is forearmed.
Indeed, as expected, after a long delay under the pretense
of the "C19 crisis", the PADOR responded to Andrew's filing with a
"Personal Income Tax Billing Notice" asserting a tax due (with penalty)
Andrew was ready with what can only be described as a
stone unturned" Biblical-grade riot-act recital. This recital
(for which note #5
in the 'FOR ALL FILERS' Note & Tips checklist should be borne in mind) was
intended to make unmistakable to the doubtless shocked bureaucrat
receiving it that Andrew was gimlet-eyed and utterly empty of all
patience with agency nonsense. (One thing that had characterized the
dodges to which the agency had resorted before was a studied difficulty
in understanding Andrew's statements, leading to a suspicion that the
only way to ensure that no cracks existed through which the agency might
feel it could slip was to say everything.)
Silence reigned for a while after Ander's October 30, 2020
response to the PADOR's first shot at browbeating him into throwing up
his hands with its unsupported and presumptive assertions. Then on
December 29, 2020, the agency took a second shot, upping the ante with
the claim this time of an actual "assessment" (and a slight uptick in
the "penalty" amount):
Andrew now has his first completed Pennsylvania victory to
accompany his several federal victories. WELL DONE, ANDREW!!
FINALLY, THERE IS THE victory-in-progress of
David and Valerie Denning.
David and Valerie have many victories posted on these pages, none of
which have been problems for these good folks. This time, though, the
folks processing their federal return for 2019 decided to play games.
David and Valerie's filing-- a typical
affair, showing no "income" received, no tax due, accordingly-- and a
total of $14,455.00 withheld in error and hereby reclaimed. Here is the
bizarre and plainly corrupt IRS response David and Valerie received this
A proper admission of no tax owed, so WELL DONE, DAVID &
VALERIE! But an outrageous pretense that nothing had been withheld and
therefore nothing was due to be refunded to David and Valerie! (See
the whole notice here.)
Where do they get these people? Under rocks?
David and Valerie promptly shot out
response. It is to be expected that their property will be returned
without too much further delay, and with appropriate interest, but I
think it will be a long time before their view of federal bureaucracies
ALL-IN-ALL, HATS VERY MUCH OFF to Ryan, Kevin, David,
Andrew and David & Valerie! These great victories join those of the tens
of thousands of other awakened and activated Americans represented
Each constitutes another critical step toward the restoration of
Founders republic and the true rule of law.

creative self in sending and "selling" these links. Do memes; make

can make use in awakening other Americans to the virtues of having
the income tax correctly administered. Please, for my sake, for your
own sake, for the sake of your children and their future, make that

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.
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
Use this evidence in all your
"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
(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
CtC-revelation (but without details sufficient to expose the
real substance of the ruling)--
and sometimes even more mendacious behavior.

resources offered on this site and in my other work of any value to you?
Tim Kendrick has posted
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.
All-in-all, just be the sort of person for others
that you would go to yourself for trustworthy leadership.

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
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...

Why I Believe That Covid Derangement Syndrome Is
by Donald J. Boudreaux
Over the past two weeks I’ve received emails urging me
to tamp down my criticism of restrictions imposed in the name of fighting
Covid-19. Most of the correspondents are polite, sincere, and even warm. Each,
however, is convinced that I underestimate the threat that Covid poses to
humanity. Each correspondent hopes that I come to take this threat much more
What follows here is part of my response to
each of these correspondents. This essay isn’t meant to change their
minds but, instead, to better explain why I hold the position that I do
toward Covid, as well as toward the public’s and governments’ responses
to Covid. For the record, I understand that different individuals have
different risk preferences. I genuinely respect these differences.
I understand also that different individuals
even have different perceptions of reality. As with the understanding of
reality achieved by blindfolded persons each touching a different part
of the elephant, reality isn’t revealed to everyone in the same way. Yet
I’m sufficiently old-fashioned to believe that there is an objective
reality, and that it’s the duty of everyone who comments publicly on
that reality to do his or her best to understand it as well as possible,
despite the inaccessibility of perfect understanding.
I believe also that, while the range of
legitimate differences in this understanding is wide, this range isn’t
unlimited. Some understandings are so detached from reality as to be
illegitimate – as in, not to be taken seriously. It is for each reader
to judge for himself or herself if my understanding of reality, as I
express it here (and elsewhere), falls within or outside of the
Below is a list of some of the facts, as I
understand them, about Covid-19, as well as about the reaction to this
disease. Although some of these facts are more firmly established than
are others, I believe that each of the facts detailed below is
legitimate, and that my interpretations of them are plausible.
Further, I believe that my understanding
justifies my relative lack of anxiety about Covid’s likely impact on me
personally and about its impact on humanity. And I believe that the
facts as I understand them warrant my description of the media’s, the
public’s, and governments’ reactions to Covid as being hysterically
The Overestimated Dangers of Covid and
Underestimated Dangers of Lockdowns
Otherwise, Boudreaux's observations and complaints are spot
on and valuable with only one further caveat. Certainly the C19
panic-buy-in IS a Kool-Aid-drunkard affair. But more importantly, it is
an ENGINEERED affair.
The misrepresentations of C19 by the MSM and "official"
voices is not carelessness, as Boudreaux generously suggests. It is
deliberate, as the overall
record, connecting all the dots, makes clear. It needs to be
recognized as such, so that the responsible parties can be fingered and
denounced, and deprived of all credibility, trust and honor.
This denunciation must extend, by the way, to ALL subjects.
Once you have established that a "journalist" or "expert" or politician
has lied to you, nothing said by that person-- or the institution on
behalf of which he speaks-- should be ever again taken as anything but
another piece of dangerous propaganda.
IN ADDITION to the benefit of that "fool me once, shame on
you, fool me twice..." permanent-suspicion outcome of recognizing Covid
Derangement Syndrome (CDS) and its true nature, there is another
benefit. Becoming aware that the "official" and "mainstream" voices have
been lying can also equip us with the simple bit of important wisdom
that independent experts are ALWAYS more trustworthy than "experts"
whose agendas are in line to be funded or whose pockets are in line to
be filled by the widespread adoption of the notions they are pushing.
Boudreaux's touch on the subject of The Great Barrington
Declaration gets toward this point (see
the declaration and some comments here). The huge number of experts
who are signatories to the Declaration are not going to be funded on the
basis of their statements, nor will they acquire power over you, while
those whose assertions they contradict expect both of these gains if
their narratives are accepted. Which of the two groups are more credible
as speakers of the truth is obvious, and offers a lesson ("Cui bono?")
that should never be forgotten or overlooked.
SO, HERE'S THE OTHER THING... In addition to recognizing
the reality of CDS and its implications, I will continue to remind everyone
that a key defense for the people against despotism under any pretext or
by any mechanism is the power
individual Americans have over the purse from which all bad state
behavior is financed.
That defense was put in place by the Founders in
anticipation of just the sort of corruption that reigns today. They
knew that if you can control the amount of damage that can be done by
bad actors, society can survive the inevitable presence within its ranks
of naïfs and fools.

final flag. In 1929, Charles Curtis becomes the first Native-American
vice-president of the United States; and in 1933 Frances Perkins becomes the
first female cabinet secretary (Secretary of Labor). In 2018, a likely
false-flag attribution of poisoning is committed by the British government

that ye were our countrymen."
