Exposing The Vaccine Hustle

The facts plainly show the relative irrelevance of even real C19 vaccines (should anyone come up with one) and the truth behind the exploitative "vaccine rollout".

LET'S START WITH how vaccines work-- it's pretty simple and very common-sense. No rocket science involved.

When an alien organism such as a virus invades a person, that person's immune system detects the invasion, analyzes the organism, and designs and produces a cure-- antibodies-- with which it destroys the invader. The cure design goes on file in the system's hard drive and that person has become immune to that alien organism (or any other of closely-similar nature).

The immunized person is incapable of becoming infected or contagious with the targeted pathogen, because every representative of that organism which finds its way into the body is killed by immediately-produced, custom-equipped antibodies cranked out by the incomprehensibly sophisticated biochemical factory of a human body.

At least, this is what happens if the immune system has time enough to do its work.

Sometimes immune systems are compromised (either directly due to long periods of isolation from other people, or indirectly due to the impact on all systems of a dangerous pre-existing condition, such as obesity, COPD, and so forth). Some invading organisms are highly aggressive. In these cases incursion, entrenchment and multiplication can take place too quickly for the immune system to do its work; the person is either successfully treated with an externally-administered "cure" that inhibits the invader long enough for the immune system to catch up and do its job, or dies.

Diseases thought of as inherently dangerous or deadly (meaning serious threats to otherwise healthy people if not treatable with an effective externally-administered cure) are so due to being of the fast-moving sort (with "fast" being a relative term, btw, meaning "faster than the typical immune system can mount its successful defense, due either to the invader's subtlety or its very rapid replication"). Such diseases, left untreated, will kill a significant number of the people they infect.

The real problem with such aggressive invasive diseases, then, is one of timing (assuming a normal healthy immune system). Such diseases don't give the immune system enough time to do its necessary analysis and design before the person is too thoroughly or pervasively infected for antibodies to either be successfully produced or deployed. This is the problem solved by vaccines.

VACCINES ARE PRE-EMPTIVE PROMPTS to the immune system to undertake its analysis and design tasks BEFORE an aggressive, overwhelming invasion by the dangerous pathogen. The prompting is done by introducing into the body a reduced-threat representative of the targeted pathogen-- one which is weakened or even dead, or is introduced into an inhospitable area.

The controlled introduction inhibits aggressive replication of the pathogen while the immune system does its analysis and put its custom-defense design on file. Once that design is on file, the threat from that pathogen is over, then and into the future. The needed antibodies will be immediately produced should the pathogen invade, denying it any chance to gain a foothold.

Vaccines simply buy their recipients a little time, allowing those recipients to become immune just as if they had fought off an invading pathogen without the help. Everyone immunized by a vaccine becomes incapable of being infected or contagious by the targeted pathogen-- just like people who achieved immunity by fighting off an inadvertent infection, with or without externally-administered treatments of some kind.

The protection will last some period between five years and lifetime. Short-span protection (the five-year+ variety) will be extended every time one is exposed to the same (or a very similar) pathogen during its pendency, at which the design-file is pulled into RAM, antibodies are produced, and the "retain in memory" timer is thereby reset.

SO, HERE IS THE POINT of this recital:

Every single person who has been exposed to C19 (the pathogen of interest right now) IS IMMUNE. That person is incapable of becoming infected, and incapable of carrying or transmitting live virus.

Since C19 is basically a version of last year's seasonal flu, tracking the same dates and vectors as any other such virus, we know that 35 to 50 million Americans were outright infected by mid-March of 2020. We can reasonably project that if half of what has been endlessly-claimed about the contagiousness and persistence of C19 is true, pretty nearly all of the other 280 million+ ended up thoroughly exposed to the virus during that same period or over the subsequent months (even if with only asymptomatic and very brief viral incursion before successful immune response).

Again, all of these folks (the vast majority of the American population) have become immune. None of these people need a vaccine.

It is because this is and has been true that the purported C19 death toll-- which certain interests have wanted to be big and scary for corrupt financial and political purposes-- has had to be inflated by 1,000% or more through inclusion of purely speculative "with COVID" listings at CDC direction since mid-March of last year. It is because this widespread immunity is and has been true that every routinely-expected heart disease death for the last 11-and-a-half months has disappeared from the normal numbers for such deaths and been attributed to the C19 total instead.

It is because this widespread immunity is and has been true that the only "support" available for panic-fanning claims of ever-more "cases" across the country has been fraudulent high-cycle PCR tests (the exploitation of which is now being revealingly wound down).

WE DON'T NEED A "VACCINE ROLLOUT", and we certainly don't need "vaccine passports". Those behind the vaccine push know these things very well.

In fact, the "vaccine push" is really just an effort by certain parties to cash-in on the C19 scam during its sunset months. It also serves as a pretense by which dictatorial edicts and those behind them will be credited with slaying the dire virus.

That sunset will likely go by quickly, so as to keep big numbers of the already-restive peasantry from reaching the point of ripping off the masks-- in every sense of the expression-- and digging deeply and skeptically-enough to uncover the truth about this massive, ruinous, deadly fraud that has been practiced upon them. Not every aspect of the scam will fade away, however.

As much of the "new normal" as the people will still tolerate now will be retained without interruption. That infection will be leveraged in the imposition of more, at a slower pace, going forward. There WILL be a strong lobby for vaccine passports, notionally-based on the persistent Kool-Aid-fed demands of some to be assured that they are not coming into contact with possibly sick people.

Those Jonestowners could simply be told by participating businesses and bureaucrats, "Hey, if you are so worried about getting sick, go get vaccinated yourself... And if you don't think that's good enough to solve your problem, then you have no reason to demand that someone else display proof of having undertaken a violation of their personal integrity to get what you plainly believe to be an ineffective treatment." But they won't be.

Whether that push succeeds and we end up with the passports (which will be for everything, buying and selling, travel, entertainment, everything) will hinge on how many have already gotten the jab by the time the rest rise up to forcefully say, "NO!" So, don't wait too long...

We don't need a "vaccine rollout". What we need is a renewal of common-sense rollout, and a renewal-of-liberty rollout.

And some prosecutions of the perps.

With Sleepy Joe Nodding Out, Kamala Harris's Awkward Citizenship Problem Becomes Acute

...and no one should let the Obama "Birther" business function as a pre-emptive poison pill for this very real legal issue.

MORE THAN TWELVE YEARS AGO the issue of the "citizenship" qualification for high office in the United States got kicked around ad nauseam in regard to Barack Obama, who was argued by some (Hillary Clinton campaign people, to begin with, it would seem) to be unqualified due to having purportedly been born in Kenya, the country of his father. That issue in Obama's case was always murky, at best, since his mother was, after all, a native-born American and Obama's claim of having been born in Hawaii was never dispositively disputed despite Herculean efforts by some of his political opponents.

I  mention the murky and quirky "citizenship" attack on Obama from way back when in order to clear the air before getting to the crystal-clear citizenship problem of Kamala Harris. In a perfectly natural reflex, anyone seeing the issue of citizenship qualification for office raised will assume that a mere rerun of the Obama attack is being fielded, and isn't likely to read on. But in fact, the two cases are as different as night and day, and the matter of qualification for office is very serious, so don't turn away, please.

Read the legal analysis through (reproduced, combined and slightly updated below from its original appearance on these pages here and here). If then you wish to deem the matter not worthy of further attention, so be it, but not before gaining an understanding of the argument, please.

The Issue Of Kamala Harris's Eligibility For Office

I'VE RECENTLY SEEN CLAIMS that Kamala Harris, while born in the USA, is the child of non-citizens in America merely on student visas. If so, then she is not qualified to be vice-president, or even senator, for that matter.

We'll begin with an analysis of the "birthright citizenship" notion itself. Then we'll apply what has been shown to the specifics of Kamala Harris' birth circumstances.

A CHILD OF NON-CITIZEN PARENTS does not acquire citizenship simply by being born on American soil-- myths about so-called "birthright citizenship" notwithstanding. The law on this is perfectly clear and unambiguous, and the pretense to the contrary relies entirely upon the glossing-over of inconvenient and contradictory words in the Fourteenth Amendment.

In this case, the phrase "or naturalized" is the one conveniently disregarded, as though its presence has no impact on the meaning of the citizenship clause. But that phrase-- which translates as, "or granted citizenship"-- is actually the key to the meaning of the clause (or, at least, the key to untangling misrepresentation or misunderstanding of the clause).

Here is the complete language of the amendment, in relevant part:

"Section 1. All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the state wherein they reside."

So, let's insert the translation of "naturalized", which will make immediately obvious that this amendment clause is not intended to grant citizenship to anyone in any normal sense of the term:

"All persons born or granted citizenship in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the state wherein they reside."

Obviously this language contemplates and concerns persons already possessed of citizenship by normal procedures-- either through birth to citizen parents, or having been granted it through naturalization.

As this more complete rendering of the language helps clarify, the purpose of the provision is not the granting of United States citizenship. Instead its purpose is the granting of state citizenship to those who are already United States citizens.

A LOOK AT THE 14th AMENDMENT'S CONTEXT AND HISTORY makes this yet more clear, revealing that those for whom this clause was designed are the persons naturalized by the Civil Rights Act of 1866. That group consists of former slaves.

Expressly EXCLUDED from that group is anyone "subject to any foreign power". This includes anyone born with allegiance to any other country by virtue of his or her parents' foreign citizenship-- such as every baby that is the object of today's "birthright citizenship" misunderstanding.

("Subject to the jurisdiction thereof" is the 14th Amendment's restatement by other words of the Civil Rights Act's earlier phrase, "not subject to any foreign power". It was perhaps restated thusly in order to pre-empt exceptions based on a claimant's argument that his parents are somehow not foreign allegiant. Per the new version of the language in the 14th Amendment, that negative, even if true, wouldn't be good enough to allow a slip under the wire.)

THE REASON FOR THE 14th AMENDMENT "CITIZENSHIP" PROVISION, very briefly, is that after the slave population was emancipated following the War to Suppress Southern Independence, many states (North and South) refused to treat freed slaves as citizens. The refusal found expression particularly in the denial of voting rights.

This denial of voting rights to the freed slaves created a conundrum for the North. The Northern state bloc faced the prospect of increased Southern strength in Congress due to the entire former slave population now being counted in full (rather than at 3/5 each) for purposes of determining the number of representatives in each state's delegation. But with the freed slaves unable to vote, the interests represented by the stronger Southern delegations would likely remain just as hostile to the Northern agenda as ever they had been, simply with more power in their hands.

The solution was the 14th Amendment, compelling every state to treat all United States citizens living within their borders as citizens of the states, as well. The expectation was that this compelled citizenship would convey unabridged voting rights.

Even so, the optimistic expectation of proper state behavior was back-stopped. Recognizing that even state citizenship might not be enough to safeguard the Northern purpose against the acts of what are, after all, sovereign states (and were still thought of in that way, at that point), the following fail-safe language-- which nicely underscores the real and limited purpose of the "citizenship clause" in Section 1-- was also included in the amendment:

Section 2. Representatives shall be apportioned among the several States according to their respective numbers, counting the whole number of persons in each State, excluding Indians not taxed. But when the right to vote at any election for the choice of electors for President and Vice President of the United States, Representatives in Congress, the Executive and Judicial officers of a State, or the members of the Legislature thereof, is denied to any of the male inhabitants of such State, being twenty-one years of age, and citizens of the United States, or in any way abridged, except for participation in rebellion, or other crime, the basis of representation therein shall be reduced in the proportion which the number of such male citizens shall bear to the whole number of male citizens twenty-one years of age in such State.

A GREAT DEAL MORE COULD BE SAID about the 14th Amendment overall. If I ever am able to be done with my advocacy for truth regarding the income tax and can move on to finishing the analysis of the Constitution with which I have been noodling for a number of years now, I'll say it.

For now, though, suffice it to say that Section 1 of the amendment in no way mandates the granting of citizenship-- either union-state or United States-- to any child of foreign parents who happens to be born on American soil.

Even the construction of the amendment's "citizenship" clause by the US Supreme Court in United States v. Wong Kim Ark (169 US 649, 1898), which did (mistakenly) find its way to affirming a 14th Amendment-based citizenship-by-birth claim of a man born to Chinese national parents who were long-time legal residents in the United States, does not avail advocates of "birthright citizenship" for the children of non-resident (or illegal) aliens. In fact, Wong defeats the advocates' argument.

In that case, the court only found for Wong because of the status of those parents as being in the United States by permission, and under terms by which they were allegiant to the United States during their time in the country. It was during that period of allegiance and jurisdictional submission that their son was born.

The Wong majority, as part of the exhaustive explanation of its opinion, quotes Justice Joseph Story in Inglis v. Sailors' Snug Harbor (1833), 3 Pet. 99. There, Justice Story, referring to Calvin's Case, Blackstone's Commentaries, and Doe v. Jones, explains the basic principle from which the Wong court proceeds in finding that a child of legal residents can acquire citizenship by birth:

"Nothing is better settled at the common law than the doctrine that the children, even of aliens, born in a country while the parents are resident there under the protection of the government and owing a temporary allegiance thereto, are subjects by birth." 3 Pet. 164. (Emphasis added.)

The Wong court subsequently extends the legal residence distinction directly to its case at hand:

Chinese persons, born out of the United States, remaining subjects of the Emperor of China, and not having become citizens of the United States, are entitled to the protection of, and owe allegiance to, the United States so long as they are permitted by the United States to reside here, and are [thus] "subject to the jurisdiction thereof" in the same sense as all other aliens residing in the United States. Yick Wo v. Hopkins (1886), 118 U.S. 356; Law Ow Bew v. United States 144 U.S. 47, 61, 62; Fong Yue Ting v. United States (1893), 149 U.S. 698, 724; Lem Moon Sing v. United States (1893), 158 U.S. 538, 547; Wong Wing v. United States (1896), 163 U.S. 228, 238. (Emphasis added.)

In the end this distinction is directly rested upon in the narrow ruling of the Wong court:

The evident intention, and the necessary effect, of the submission of this case to the decision of the court upon the facts agreed by the parties were to present for determination the single question stated at the beginning of this opinion, namely, whether a child born in the United States, of parent of Chinese descent, who, at the time of his birth, are subjects of the Emperor of China, but have a permanent domicil and residence in the United States, and are there carrying on business, and are not employed in any diplomatic or official capacity under the Emperor of China, becomes at the time of his birth a citizen of the United States. For the reasons above stated, this court is of opinion that the question must be answered in the affirmative.

United States v. Wong Kim Ark (169 US 649, 1898) (Emphasis added.)

Plainly, the children born to non-resident aliens are in no way beneficiaries of even the Wong court's expansive and mistaken construction of the 14th Amendment's "citizenship clause". Indeed, the express resort by the court to the legal residence of the parents in finding for Wong is the exclusion of all those not enjoying the same distinction of circumstance, and thus a left-handed ruling by the Supreme Court to the effect that the children of non-residents are not entitled to any such "birthright citizenship".

(It is also worth observing-- for the sake of good scholarship-- that while much in common and ancient law might have once weighed on the side of "birthright citizenship" on grounds outside the provisions of the 14th Amendment, the very adoption of that amendment with its explicit purposes and provisions on the subject has arguably now settled the question in the negative.)

AS NOTED IN THE PRECEDING ANALYSIS, the Wong Kim Ark ruling by the Supreme Court in 1898 which is relied-upon by advocates of the mistaken "birthright citizenship" as supporting their notions, is wrongly decided. The court in that case failed to recognize the distinction between United States and state citizenship that is the heart of the 14th Amendment provision in question-- perhaps due to poor briefing by the litigants in the case.

But even if Wong were soundly decided, it would not avail Harris in her claim, if indeed her parents were merely in America on student visas at the time of Harris' birth.

The Wong court reached its conclusions in Wong's favor based solely on the legal residency of Wong's parents, who were found by the court to have been "permitted by the United States to reside here" and to, in fact, have "permanent domicil and residence in the United States". The court reasoned that in seeking and establishing legal residency Wong's parents had affirmatively and deliberately relinquished their former allegiances and become allegiant to the USA, thus-- and only thus-- bringing them under the relevant provisions of the 14th Amendment.

If Harris's parents were in the country merely on visas, as I understand to be the case, this would not meet the standard laid down by the Wong court.

"Resident" is a condition of specific legal meaning, as stated here, in Bouvier's Law Dictionary, 1856:

RESIDENT, persons. A person coming into a place with intention to establish his domicil or permanent residence, and who in consequence actually remains there. Time is not so essential as the intent, executed by making or beginning an actual establishment, though it be abandoned in a longer, or shorter period. See 6 Hall's Law Journ. 68; 3 Hagg. Eccl. R. 373; 20 John. 211 2 Pet. Ad. R. 450; 2 Scamm. R. 377.

Obtaining or being in the country by virtue of a student visa is merely visiting on a deliberately and declared temporary basis, and not for purposes of, or with permission to, establish permanent residency. Entry into a country on a student visa involves no relinquishment of prior national allegiance and replacement of it with allegiance to the USA either affirmatively and deliberately or even casually and by accident, and being here on such a visa does not constitute legal residence.

In fact, particular legal steps must be taken by student visa holders in order to convert their status to one with the potential for lawful residence of the sort on which the Wong court rested its decision. See this for some professional discussion of the subject.

In sum, even if it were not incorrect overall in its finding of a "birthright citizenship" right on behalf of Wong Kim Ark (as it is), on its terms the Wong ruling offers nothing on behalf of Kamala Harris' claims. If the student visas thing is sound, Harris should be removed from office (and I suppose consideration should be given to examining Senate votes during the time she had been seated in that body against the possibility that the outcomes of some of the squeakers should be reversed...).

***

BONUS ITEM-- Here is a little something everyone might want to encourage as a new law for the state in which they live (with appropriate addition on penalty, and so forth), for reasons that will be obvious to some:

ANY PERSON OR PERSONS HOLDING A POSITION of trust and honor found to have knowingly withheld, suppressed or obscured information from the public for lack of which an untimely death or disability results shall be guilty of a felony.

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.

The Real Reason For The Attack On Dr. Seuss

Geisel's work is not racist-- the idea is a deliberate lie. In fact, Geisel's work is powerfully anti-racist. But it is also powerfully anti-socialist, anti-military-industrial-complex, anti-conformist and pro-liberty.

LAST WEEK WE WERE TREATED to the latest (or one of the many latest) examples of apparent "woke" insanity with the announcement that Dr. Seuss (Ted Geisel) was being chucked down the memory hole. It seems the good doctor has been found to have larded his children's books with racism.

Who would've ever imagined that! Hugely popular during the formative years of those born in the Western World from 1940 or so onward, Seuss's work-- whatever its message-- was plainly influential. Those influenced thereby marched and politicked on behalf of the civil rights movements of the 1960s and beyond (and intermarried at ever-increasing rates, and welcomed increasing diversity in entertainment and neighborhoods and displayed the opposite of racism in every other possible way).

You'd have thought that if Seuss were communicating racism the exact opposite would have happened...

THE FACT IS, THE DR. SEUSS CATALOG has been one of the most influential ANTI-racist forces in recent history. But it is also one of the most influential anti-bullshit forces in recent history. For example, Seuss's book The Sneetches is powerfully anti-racist. But it is also powerfully anti-racism-hustle, and THAT'S why the "woke" community and its managers don't like it.

Seuss's other books draw fire for the same reasons. Leaving aside the content-free Hop on Pop, Red Fish, Blue Fish and 'The Cat in the Hat introduction-to-reading fare, Seuss delivers trenchant analyses and debunks of socialism, militarism, and authoritarianism through his books, with a concision of wit and wisdom second to none.

Again, being oriented toward, and accessible by, a very young audience (and being initially presented to that young audience by loving parents in what is, for every child, among the very best times of each day), Seuss's valuable lessons have more traction and durability than most any other ideological offering. Even the best efforts of government school teachers to push social justice claptrap into the mind of a kid who cut his or her teeth on Thidwick, the Big-Hearted Moose are going to find it a tough slog.

Likewise, the national-security state pretexts relied upon by the war-mongers and their armament clients will always lose in a voter well-versed in The Butter Battle Book. Officious authoritah stands naked in the town square to eyes that have soaked up Bartholomew Cubbins and the Oobleck (or many other titles); and pressures to conform are trampled flat beneath the heavy feet of Who-hearing Horton.

I PUT MY MONEY WHERE MY MOUTH IS on this subject, so to speak: the afore-mentioned Seuss titles have been on my homeschool recommended reading list since its inception. That alone should tell you that the "woke" fear of these books has nothing to do with racism and rests squarely on that cults blind hatred and fear of reason and the individual liberty to which well-instructed and unfettered reason inevitably leads.

So, uncancel Dr. Seuss.

Swamp his publisher in orders for his books. Get them for yourself if you don't already have them, and for gifting to every parent of young children that you know, and for bookshelf in every venue in which young readers might be found.

That project alone will do more to advance the cause of liberty than all the rallying and voting and phone calls to congresscritters than you will ever do in your lifetime, combined.

The Entire Legal And Practical Truth About The Income Tax In Three Short Sentences

Focus on these simple points and you can teach anyone the truth about the tax.

1. The income tax is an excise.

2. Excise taxes are taxes on the gainful exercise of privileges.

3. You probably didn't earn your money by exercising any taxable privilege (or earned very little that way).

Inarguable (and nowhere disputed) proof of the first two statements above can be found concisely spelled-out in this little 7-page document. Whether the third is true for any particular person can be determined by consulting this guide to understanding "income-taxable privilege".

Daft And Despicable Deniers

What the hell is wrong with these people?!

CAN YOU EVEN IMAGINE how abysmally stupid someone would have to be to continue to doubt or deny that CtC has revealed the actual, complete and insurmountable truth about the income tax in light of the overwhelming mountain of historical, legal, practical and logical evidence to the contrary? (Not to mention the outright lies and even ludicrous hoaxes the executive and some corrupt members of the judiciary have been caught at in desperate efforts to conceal the truth...)

Plainly any such denier must either be abysmally stupid or be an abysmally corrupt government official or other person who sees him or herself as benefitting from the lies about the tax by which America has suffered for 75 years now. Isn't this true?

Important guest observations and commentary with an important afterword by Yours Truly

 

The Decline of the West: American Education Surrenders to 'Equity'

by Philip Giraldi

Public education in the United States, if measured by results, has been producing graduates that are less competent in language skills and dramatically less well taught in the sciences and mathematics since 1964, when Scholastic Aptitude Test scores peaked. The decline in science and math skills has accelerated in the past decade according to rankings of American students compared to their peers overseas. A recent assessment, from 2015, placed the U.S. at 38th out of 71 countries in math and 24th in science. Among the 35 members of the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development OECD), the United States came in at 30th in math and 19th in science. Those poor results must be placed in a context of American taxpayers spending more money per student than any other country in the world, so the availability of resources is not necessarily a factor in most school districts.

Much of the decline is due to technical advances that level the playing field for teachers worldwide, but one must also consider changing perceptions of the role of education in a social context. In the United States in particular, political and cultural unrest certainly have been relevant factors. But all of that said and considered, the U.S. is now confronting a reassessment of values that will likely alter forever traditional education and will also make American students even more non-competitive with their foreign peers.

Many schools in the United States have ceased issuing grades that have any meaning, or they have dropped grading altogether, which means there is no way to judge progress or achievement. National test scores for evaluating possible college entry are on the way out almost everywhere as they are increasingly being condemned as “racist” in terms of how they assess learning based solely on the fact that blacks do less well on them than Asians and whites. This has all been part of an agenda that is being pushed that will search for and eliminate any taint of racism in the public space. It has also meant the destruction or removal of numerous historic monuments and an avoidance of any honest discussion of American history. San Francisco schools are, for example, notoriously spending more than $1 million to change the names of 44 schools that honor individuals who have been examined under the “racism and oppression” microscope and found wanting. They include George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Abraham Lincoln, and Paul Revere.

The new world order for education is built around the concept of “equity,” sometimes described as using the public education system to “ensure equitable outcomes.” But the concept itself is deeply flawed as the pursuit of equity means treating all American unequally to guarantee that everyone that comes out of the schools is the same and has learned the same things. That is, of course, ridiculous and it penalizes the good student to make sure that the bad student is somehow pushed through the system and winds up with the same piece of paper.

And the quality overall of public education will sharply decline. One might reasonably observe that imposition of a totalitarian style “equity” regime based on race will inevitably drive many of the academically better prepared students out of the system. Many of the better teachers will also move to the private academies that will spring up due to parental and student demand. Others will stop teaching altogether when confronted by political correctness at a level that prior to 2020 would have seemed unimaginable. The actual quality of education will suffer for everyone involved.

All of that has been bad enough, but the clincher is that this transformation is taking place all over the United States with the encouragement of federal, state and local governments and once the new regime is established it will be difficult or even impossible to go back to a system where learning is actually a discipline that sometimes requires hard work and dedication. In many school districts, the actual process of change is also being put on the back of the taxpayer. In one Virginia county the local school board spent $422,500 on a consultant to apply so-called Critical Race Theory (CRT) to a new program of instruction that will be mandatory for all employees and will serve as the framework for teaching the students. When schools eventually reopen, all kindergarteners, for example, will be taught “social justice” in a course designed by the controversial Southern Poverty Law Center and “diversity training” will be integrated in all other grade levels. Teaching reading, writing and arithmetic will take a back seat to “social justice.”

Afterword

GIRALDI POINTS OUR ATTENTION to a truly pernicious dynamic at work in places throughout America that is not only fraught with danger for the overall well-being of our nation, but imposes a tragic injustice on our children. Where it has been understood in every schoolhouse and in the dreams of every budding scientist or athlete that hard work and focus generate accomplishments and accolades, the socialist dementia of "equity" teaches that hard work is for suckers.

This trend of "equity" considerations (which is to say, this assault on meritocracy) is part of an overall effort to destroy Western civilization by those to whose agendas its underlying principles of individual sovereignty and the rule of law are a hindrance. It should be opposed strenuously-- which means you and I must be at every school board meeting voicing opposition, and taking positions within the structures if need be.

A PARELLEL (AND MORE POWERFUL) DEFENSE against the erosion of our civilization by way of the schools is to remove children from those schools. This can be done easily by the simple expedient of spreading and acting on the truth about the income tax.

That truth frees parents from the need for both to be in the workforce in order to bring in enough to support the household, freeing one to become the educator of the children. See this for a bit more.

Take charge, people, or someone else will take charge of you.

A New Policy

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

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 years now.

Therefore, with enormous reluctance, I am making portions of this website restricted access only. People have been urging me to do this for years now, telling me I should impose a charge to access my work-product, so as to enable me to keep producing.

I have never been inclined to charge fees for access. I ask for donations, and will continue to do that, and if they do not come, then I will conclude that my work is of no value to anyone, and I will close shop.

But I now WILL charge a special something for access to some key portions of that work.

Opening selected pages on LHC comprising higher level legal resources now requires the submission of qualifying testimonial videos, as discussed, described and demonstrated here. The videos must be accompanied by scans of a recent educated filing along with responsive documents from the IRS, whether in the form of a check, a notice identifying and reflecting the filed return, or "return" and "account" transcripts for the year for which the return was filed. Names must be shown in full.

Similarly, if an email comes my way asking for guidance or assistance, I had better already have your video posted.

I HATE TO PLAY IT THIS WAY. But I want to win.

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

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

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

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

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

Do I ask for a lot? I want your victories to post, your financial support, your efforts 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.”

Fear nothing but God.

What Makes YOU A Warrior For The Truth?

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

P.S. READ EVERYTHING THAT FOLLOWS, CAREFULLY AND THOROUGHLY!!

 

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

-Martin Luther King, Jr.

What does it for you?

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

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

Is it the money?

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

All you need is a webcam or cell-phone equipped with a camera. If you don't have, or know how to use, one of these, have a friend help. (And if you use a cell-phone, please have the orientation horizontal, not vertical-- that is, so that the screen of the phone on which you are watching yourself while taping looks like a TV or movie screen.)

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

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 your plans.

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

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 CtC 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.

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

BTW: An encouraging and inspiring video will earn you access to the restricted pages on losthorizons.com and membership in the National Forum if you have also sent me a recent educated federal filing and IRS response (or relevant "return" or "account" transcript). I will be the judge of whether your submissions qualify for access, but if you do your best you should do fine.

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

See how some of your fellow warriors for the truth have done their parts in videos sent over the years, many of which are posted here.

"It does not take a majority to prevail... but rather an irate, tireless minority, keen on setting brushfires of freedom in the minds of men."

Was Grandpa Really A Moron?

Critical Inquiries for a New American Century

Bob’s Bicycles

or

Getting Free Of The "Income" Tax Scheme Is As Easy As Falling Off A Bike

To get an idea of how today's "income" tax scheme works, try this little exercise:

Think of the federal government as a guy named Bob, who lives down the street from you in a town that is really big on bicycles. Bikes get used for commuting, deliveries, shopping, etc.. In fact, other than walking, bicycles are the exclusive form of transportation in your town.

Your neighbor Bob has a by-the-mile bicycle-renting business-- "Bob's Bicycles". Bob's Bicycles is far and away the biggest business in town.

Part of Bob’s success is because he does a lot of contract business. However, Bob doesn't just get paid by riders who have signed an agreement with him, or even just those using Bob's bikes. Bob gets something every time anybody in town does any riding at all, through an odd combination of circumstances that took many years to come together.

Here's how it happened...

Bob's Bicycles was launched long ago by the great grandfather of the present Bob (Bob IV). Great Grandpa Bob started out not only with a main location for his contract business-- he also had the bright idea of setting up spots around town where he parked some of his bikes for use by the more occasional rider, on an "honor system". Anyone could take and use one of these bikes, but they were expected to keep track of their mileage, and send Bob a "1040 Mileage Ridden/Rent Due Form" (and the appropriate rent), periodically. The initial design of the form was like this:

I, ______________, rode a Bob's Bicycle a total of _____ miles this year.

At Bob's rental rate of $.15 per mile, I owe Bob $______

I said that Great Grandpa Bob planned to deal with these occasional riders on the "honor system", and that's true. But he liked his money, too, and didn't want to miss anything that was due him. So, after setting up the "self-serve" locations, Great Grandpa Bob went around handing out "W-2, 1099 or K-1 Rider Reporting Forms" to every other business in town. The forms-- accompanied by notices that if Bob didn't get his rent from someone riding a bicycle in connection with any business, he would sue the company involved-- said:

You Can’t Fight Well When You Don’t Know What You’re Fighting About

If you are having an argument with the IRS or any other tax agency,

  • You are NOT being presumed to have made “corporate profit”.

  • You are NOT being alleged to have received “foreign income”.

  • You are NOT entangled in an invisible “adhesion contract”.

  • You are NOT being obligated by a law whose subject is never identified.

You are being targeted because REAL EVIDENCE exists that YOU PERSONALLY HAD “INCOME” to which the revenue laws apply-- even though that evidence is almost certainly incorrect, and CAN be corrected.

A Few Tips For Making Best Use Of This WebSite

USE THE SITE MAP!!!

USE THE SITE SEARCH!!!

When directed to a page by topic or link, read everything.

I know that this can mean the investment of a lot of time, attention and effort, but although some may imagine otherwise, I don't write as much as I do because I can't think of any other way to spend my time...

Furthermore, when you encounter a hyperlink within, or associated with, the text you are reading, follow it!

It is pretty common these days for web-based material to be littered with hyperlinks. Sometimes the purpose is to provide definitions or examples, in order to ensure that folks reading the original material aren't presented with a word or reference which they don't understand. Sometimes the links lead to illustrations pertinent to the original text.

It is common-- and perfectly understandable-- for folks who are confident that they are familiar with language or references within the main text they are reading to get in the habit of skipping over included links. I do it all the time, myself!

However, I very rarely include links for definitional or explanatory purposes; and when I DO make a link out of text in one page it is generally to another self-contained page, rather than merely illustrative material. These other pages contain material the clear understanding of which I deem highly important for the proper and complete understanding of the original page. (Links to CtC, the Victories pages, CtC Warriors and so on are obvious exceptions to this general rule. On the other hand, a link to the victory Highlights or 'Every Which Way But Loose' pages, which might seem like such exceptions, are not. The special selection of victories on those pages, and the filed docs and tax-agency correspondences included therewith, themselves constitute highly instructive material which merits careful attention. Thus care needs to be taken in all cases.)

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.

Illuminating anniversaries of this week:

March 9- In 1776, Adam Smith publishes 'The Wealth of Nations'.  In 1841, the United States Supreme Court rules in the Amistad case that the enslavement of the Africans who had gained control of the ship on which they were being transported was illegal.  In 1916, Mexican General Pancho Villa attacks a detachment of the 13th United States Cavalry Regiment in Columbus, New Mexico.  In 1933, FDR sends an "Emergency Banking Act" (largely drafted by the Hoover administration) to Congress, which is passed and signed into law that same day.  Disturbingly similar to the current "bailout" programs, it set the stage for the prolongation (and deepening) of the Great Depression for another 12 years (when a hands-off approach and the restoration of sound, precious-metal-backed currency would have seen the economy recovering on its own within 18 months to two years).  In 1945, the Allies begin fire-bombing Tokyo in a campaign that kills 100,000-- the vast majority of whom are civilians.  In 1959, "Barbie" hits the toy shelves.

-Proverbs 25:26

 

"A nation of sheep begets a government of wolves."

Illuminating anniversaries of this week:

March 11- In 1708, Queen Anne of Great Britain vetoes the "Scottish Militia Bill" for fear the militia thus authorized would be unreliable in its subservience to the crown.  It is the last time that a British monarch has exercised the veto power against an act of Parliament.  In 1918, the first confirmed cases of the "Spanish Flu" pandemic are observed in Queens, New York.  Over the next two years, somewhere between 20 million and 100 million will die from the disease worldwide-- mostly young adults, due to an idiosyncrasy of the strain's effect on its host.  In 1985, Mikhail Gorbachev assumes power in the Soviet Union.  In 1990, Patricio Aylwin is sworn in as the first democratically-elected president of Chile since 1970.  In 1993, Janet Reno, who rose to prosecutorial prominence by imprisoning lots of people in Florida on manifestly fictitious child-molestation charges, and later went on to slaughter children and their parents in Waco, Texas, is confirmed as United States Attorney General by the U.S. Senate.

Assessing The Damage From The Misapplication Of The Income Tax

Man, are young Americans getting ripped off...!

"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."

-Frederick Douglass

Illuminating anniversaries of this week:

March 12- In 1912, the American Girl Guides organization (later "Girl Scouts of the USA") is founded.  In 1930, Gandhi begins leading marchers on a 200-mile trek to the sea to begin making salt from seawater in defiance of a British revenue-generating legal monopoly on the substance.  In 1947, President Harry Truman proclaims his "containment of communism" doctrine to Congress, a major step into the Cold War.  In 1993, North Korea announces its withdrawal from the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty.  In 2011, a reactor at the Fukishima Daiikai Nuclear Power Plant in Japan melts and explodes.
