So, Yesterday Was "Declaration
Did you do it?
DECLARATION DAY. That is,
"NO MORE PARALYSIS Day"
"NO MORE DENIAL Day"
"NO MORE, "I DON'T DARE..." Day"
"NO MORE, "THE BAD MEN WILL NOTICE ME SO I'D
BETTER NOT!" Day"
"NO MORE, "I'LL WAIT FOR SOMEONE ELSE TO GO
In short, here we are at,
"GET OFF YOUR ASS Day"
"GET LOUD AND PROUD AND UN-COWED Day"
I'm talking about,
"DON'T STOP 'TIL YOU'VE GOT LIBERTY AND THE RULE
OF LAW Day"
"FACE THE FACTS Day"
"NO TIME TO RELAX Day"...
More than anything, we've just had "PUT ASIDE DELUSIONS
Day" That's what the original "Declaration day" was all about. It
was the day the American colonists finally acknowledged that the
people they had been entreating to respect their rights actually
didn't want them to have their rights.
It was the day the American colonists finally
acknowledged that the government operatives they had been petitioning and
politicking and lobbying and arguing with weren't misled or mistaken
or suffering from misunderstanding, needing only to have things
explained a bit better, or argued a bit more authoritatively.
Instead, as the colonists realized and finally admitted by way of
the Declaration, those operatives were their competitors.
Those operatives were the colonists' opponents. Efforts to
persuade them were pointless-- they admitted to no limits on their
power and had no interest in curbing its abuse, which was being
practiced for their benefit.
IT WAS HARD for the colonists to reach that
epiphany about their government. Because states exercise power (and partly also because
they maintain an elaborate apologia dedicated to justifying that
exercise as being for the good of the citizenry, or at least the way
things must or are supposed to be), they come to be viewed as
virtual parents in the hind-brains of those subject to that power.
It is very hard for people to recognize and acknowledge that actual
Mom and Dad are bad people. It is nearly as hard for people to
recognize that the state under the influence of which they have been
raised is corrupt and malicious.
But of course, sometimes Mom and Dad are indeed bad,
and states usually are. And while Mom and Dad can and often do
become remorseful, and proceed to reform and redemption, states are
institutionally-incapable of remorse. The only remedy against a bad
state is taking away its power. Eventually, after wasting all that
time and effort on petitioning, politicking, lobbying and arguing,
the American colonists admitted this truth on Declaration Day and
said, "No more talking-- it's time for walking!"
Bless them for
abandoning their child-like view of the state and becoming grown-ups
IT REMAINS TO BE SEEN if we modern Americans are
equally deserving of blessings. We should be up to the task; after
all, we have a much easier row to hoe than the colonists did.
While we, too, must adopt a grown-up understanding
of the true character of the dangerous servant against which we have
been wisely warned, our state is already bound down by the written
law, thanks to the blood and sacrifices of our ancestors. All we
have to do is recognize that the state is constantly struggling to
escape any limitations placed upon it by that law, and to suppress
and marginalize anyone revealing its bad behavior and anything
showing how it can be put back into its chains.
Particularly, we have to recognize that the biggest
and most important limitation put upon the state concerns its
ability to take resources from individual citizens for its own use.
It's this simple-- the one who controls the disposition of property
is the one in charge.
Because it is so important, for decades the United
States has been engaged in the cultivation and exploitation of myths
about what limitations are placed upon it in regard to resource
acquisition. Sadly, for most of those decades most Americans have
fallen for the fictions.
Chief among these state-serving, people-harming
myths is the truly absurd proposition that our grandparents amended
the Constitution in 1913 to authorize the state's exploitation of
their resources at its will, in defiance and rejection of the
previous tax-limiting Constitutional rules under which the American
become the freest and most prosperous in the history of the
THIS IS A MYTH! It never happened, and even
the premier organs of the state itself have said so endlessly-- but
quietly, so as to preserve the on-the-books harmony of the law while
allowing the state (and its clients and cronies) to ruthlessly
exploit anyone who doesn't know to look and remains in ignorance.
See the proof that this is a myth at
losthorizons.com/The16th.htm. Read the 1916
Cornell and Harvard Law Review articles on the Supreme Court's
unanimous conclusions about the Sixteenth Amendment. See what
Department of Treasury experts admit about the income tax. See what the
Supreme Court continues to say about the amendment and the tax over
the decades. Learn the real history of the tax and its antecedents.
See what the tax really falls upon and how it really
works in application (and how and why it may have been misapplied to
you in the past). See what those who have learned the long-obscured
truth about the income tax have been accomplishing since that truth
was revealed in 2003.
here and see how
the state has been struggling to keep you from knowing any of this.
After you take these two enlightening little excursions,
recognize that every single person or
institution that would lose prestige, power or profits by
acknowledging the truth about the tax can be expected to lie about
the subject if queried, as will every interest that sees itself
benefitting from the existence of a mammoth state (which might even
include those who make their living complaining about the mammoth
state, or the supposed evils of the income tax). Every one of these
are today's equivalents of the invested promoters and defenders of
the "divine right of kings" myth that kept people enthralled and
exploited in the colonists' time.
But also recognize that now knowing the truth, the
power is in your hands. The responsibility is, too.
Rise to deserve the blessings of posterity.

More Victories In Upholding The Law And
Defunding The Increasingly Rogue State
Hurray for the heroes!
LET'S START with two great new testimonial videos:
NOW, ON TO NEWLY-SHARED RECENT VICTORIES:
SCOTT (CREATOR OF THE "HOW
YOU BECOME LIABLE..." QUIZ) JUST SECURED a refund for 2018,
with penalty and interest abatement, plus interest paid to Scott, by way
of an amended federal return with which he corrected the omission in his
original filing of a 1099 rebuttal:
Not a big amount of money, but a big victory for the rule
of law. Here is the
filing involved; and
here is the notice of refund and abatements. (BTW, Scott's was the
first educational tax-truth quiz to appear on the internet-- many years
ago, soon after
CtC was first published. It was so well-conceived a notion that it
inspired me to follow on with a series of additional illuminating
which you can find here.)
IN ADDITION TO THE fine video Adam shared a few days ago
(above), he has also just shared a February victory reclaiming
everything withheld from him and given over to the feds during 2018:
Here is the
filing that produced this victory. As can be seen in the CP49, the better part
of the entire $6,011.95 overpayment acknowledged by the IRS was devoted
to retirement of an allegedly-outstanding liability from 2016.
Nonetheless, the agency has agreed that Adam had no tax liability for
2018, and was entitled to the return of everything withheld from his
earnings. Further, the diversion of a portion of the refund-- done
pursuant to 26
U.S.C. § 6402(a)-- was to Adam's benefit.
All told, this is a solid victory, even though Adam only
ended up with a portion of the withheld money back in his pocket.
TIMOTHY SHARES a federal victory-- issued the same day as
Scott Olmsted's and, also like Scott's, with interest-- but with the
bulk of the refunded money diverted to an allegedly-outstanding
liability, as in Adam's case, above:
The IRS also expressly acknowledged that Timothy had
done nothing taxable in 2016, and owed no tax for that year:
And all of this was done after
a lame IRS attempt
to pretend that Timothy's filing had not substantiated the amounts
withheld from him (and by implication, that it had not received
documentation of those withholdings from the company that paid Timothy
and withheld the money) of the sort
So, you'd think all this was a nice, particularly-emphatic
victory, right? Well, it is that, but...
Despite its admissions of no taxable activity conducted,
and no tax owed, the IRS has obnoxiously subjected Timothy to one of its
occasional efforts to illegally hang on to what was withheld as FICA
taxes. This, even while admitting that Timothy did nothing upon which such
taxes can arise (since the admission that Timothy had received no Chapter 24 "wages" and thus
was entitled to the return of the $2,844.54 withheld under the terms of
is also an
admission that he received no Chapter 21 "wages"), and even
expressly required by law to return those withholdings under
As seen in Timothy's filing, the actual amount withheld and
due back is $7,239.70 (plus interest). As seen on the excerpted portion
of page 2 of the CP16 Timothy received, the IRS is simply lying about
this. Timothy has begun considering his options for addressing this
agency corruption, and we wish him justice.
SO, HATS OFF to Scott and Adam and Timothy and Jack! Their
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.
Don't you wish your victories were proudly posted, too?
You can't throw a stone blindfolded anymore without hitting
five things that richly deserve it...
A RECENT EDITION of the Detroit News contained the
assertion by John E. Johnson Jr., the interim Executive Director of
Michigan's Department of Civil Rights, that "COVID-19 had a disparate
impact on people of color." Johnson even goes so far as to say that "no
one disputes that" ridiculous assertion.
As can be gathered, I dispute that "disparate impact"
Here's the simple rebuttal: Absent biological evidence to the
contrary (of which none is on offer), there is no basis for saying that
people of color are inherently more susceptible to illness and bad
outcomes from the COVID-19 virus. What IS true, however, is that fat
people, and smokers, and people who have compromised their respiratory
and cardio health in other ways, are more susceptible to illness and bad
outcomes from the COVID-19 virus.
Similarly, people more inclined to compromise their immune
systems by embrace of the insane "masking" and "social distancing"
advice from what every grown-up should long-since have recognized as
fundamentally agenda-driven and corrupt voices in the MSM and government
officialdom are consequently more likely to suffer dire outcomes from
That a disparate percentage of people of color might be
compromised in these ways is very possible-- but that's on them. The
disparate outcomes from the prevalence of these complicating factors are
not related in any way whatever to the color of skin. These disparate
outcomes are, rather, related to the content of character.
A MAN WAS CROWNED 'MISS NEVADA' last week, in another
prostration of America at the feet of militant "transgender"
delusion-boosters. The rationale appears to be that the superficial
appearance of being a woman is sufficient qualification.
In light of the new standards, I think the next beauty
pageant should include entrants who are simply drag queens, or even,
maybe, animatronic women built to look the part and programmed to
view themselves as women. Both look the part, and both are just as
much women as the fellow given the Miss Nevada crown.
Or, hey, let's go right to the heart of the neuroses. Let's
invite to the competition that psycho in 'Silence of the Lambs'. You
remember. The guy who was sewing pieces of skin together to make himself a "woman-suit".
Like other "transwomen", he felt that his "true" gender was female;
he just had a different approach to making it "real" than "Miss" Nevada.
MORE IN THE "TRANSGENDER" LUNACY category: Real female
athletes will be made to compete against men in the Olympic games later
this month-- delusional men, granted,
but physical men, nonetheless.
Unless the real women all refuse, and boycott the games, of course,
as they should.
Real women should boycott as a matter of principle (both as
athletes and as fans). The athletes should do so also because otherwise
they will compete in grossly unfair pretend contests with largely
Men and women are different. It's a fact. And everyone
knows it, whether they admit it or not.
Consider this: Boys and men pretending to be girls and
women have been muscling their way into female athletic competitions
everywhere they can (and stealing victories, trophies, and benefits from
real girls and women). But nowhere do we see girls and women who now
pretend to be boys and men trying to compete in male athletics...
IT IS INCREASINGLY CLEAR that the Deep State orchestrated
the political theater elements of the events of January 6 at the
Capital. See the reporting on this from Revolver News
This is rather an important subject, don't you think? I
wonder why we've seen so little in the MSM about this... lol.
SPEAKING OF THE DEEP STATE, it appears that Tucker Carlson
has been targeted for illegal hacks and surveillance. See
discussion by Matt Walsh, in which he parses out the acknowledgement-by-dodgy-denial
of the NSA-- aspects of which will be very familiar to any educated
filer who has ever had to deal with a balky tax agency...
It's like the experience of every parent trying to get
straight answers from a pimply adolescent about some escapade of
delinquency. Of course, unlike a bureaucrat or a teenager trying to sow
confusion, the government illegally spying on a journalist is serious as
a heart attack...
We should all be viewing the matter in that light, and
raising some hell about it.

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

(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.

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.

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...

How government and media use the phrase to suppress
by James Bovard
“National Strategy for Countering Domestic Terrorism” report last week
declared that “enhancing faith in American democracy” requires “finding ways to
counter the influence and impact of dangerous conspiracy theories.” In recent
decades, conspiracy theories have multiplied almost as fast as government lies
and cover-ups. While many allegations have been ludicrously far-fetched, the
political establishment and media routinely attach the “conspiracy theory” label
to any challenge to their dominance.
to Cass Sunstein, Harvard Law professor and Obama’s regulatory czar,
a conspiracy theory is “an effort to explain some event or practice by
reference to the machinations of powerful people, who have also managed
to conceal their role.” Reasonable citizens are supposed to presume that
government creates trillions of pages of new secrets each year for their
own good, not to hide anything from the public.
In the early 1960s, conspiracy theories were
practically a non-issue because 75 percent of Americans trusted the
federal government. Such credulity did not survive the assassination of
John F. Kennedy. Seven days after Kennedy was shot on November 22, 1963,
President Lyndon Johnson created a commission (later known as the Warren
Commission) to suppress controversy about the killing. Johnson and FBI
chief J. Edgar Hoover browbeat the commission members into speedily
issuing a report rubberstamping the “crazed lone gunman” version of the
assassination. House Minority Leader Gerald Ford, a member of the
commission, revised the final staff report to change the location of
where the bullet entered Kennedy’s body, thereby salvaging Hoover’s
so-called “magic bullet” theory. After the Warren Commission findings
were ridiculed as a whitewash, Johnson ordered the FBI to conduct
wiretaps on the report’s critics. To protect the official story, the
commission sealed key records for 75 years. Truth would out only after
all the people involved in any coverup had gotten their pensions and
The controversy surrounding the Warren
Commission spurred the CIA to formally attack the notion of conspiracy
theories. In a 1967 alert to its overseas stations and bases, the CIA
declared that the fact that almost half of Americans did not believe
Oswald acted alone “is a matter of concern to the U.S. government,
including our organization” and endangers “the whole reputation of the
American government.” The memo instructed recipients to “employ
propaganda assets” and exploit “friendly elite contacts (especially
politicians and editors), pointing out… parts of the conspiracy talk
appear to be deliberately generated by Communist propagandists.” The
ultimate proof of the government’s innocence: “Conspiracy on the large
scale often suggested would be impossible to conceal in the United
However, the CIA did conceal a wide range of
assassinations and foreign coups it conducted until congressional
investigations in the mid-1970s blew the whistle. The New York Times,
exposed the CIA memo in 1977, noted that the CIA “mustered its
propaganda machinery to support an issue of far more concern to
Americans, and to the C.I.A. itself, than to citizens of other
countries.” According to historian Lance deHaven-Smith,
author of Conspiracy Theory in America,, “The CIA’s campaign to
popularize the term ‘conspiracy theory’ and make conspiracy belief a
target of ridicule and hostility must be credited…with being one of the
most successful propaganda initiatives of all time.” (In 2014, the
CIA released a heavily-redacted report
admitting that it had been “complicit” in a JFK “cover-up” by
withholding “incendiary” information from the Warren Commission.)
The Johnson administration also sought to
portray critics of its Vietnam War policies as conspiracy nuts, at least
when they were not portraying them as communist stooges. During 1968
Senate hearings on the Gulf of Tonkin incident, Defense Secretary Robert
McNamara denounced the “monstrous insinuations” that the U.S. had sought
to provoke a North Vietnamese attack and
declared that it is “inconceivable that anyone even remotely
familiar with our society and system of government could suspect the
existence of a conspiracy” to take the nation to war on false pretenses.
Three years later, the disclosure of the Pentagon Papers demolished the
credibility of McNamara and other top Johnson administration officials
who indeed dragged America into the Vietnam War on false pretenses.
Condemnations of conspiracy theories became a
hallmark of the Clinton administration. In 1995, President Bill Clinton
claimed that people who believed government threatened their
constitutional right were deranged ingrates: “If you say that Government
is in a conspiracy to take your freedom away, you are just plain wrong….
How dare you call yourselves patriots and heroes!” The same year, the
White House compiled a fevered 331-page report entitled “Communication
Stream of Conspiracy Commerce,” attacking magazines, think tanks,
and others that had criticized President Clinton. In the following
years, many of the organizations condemned in the White House report
were targeted for IRS audits, including the Heritage Foundation and the
American Spectator magazine and almost a dozen individual high-profile
Clinton accusers, including Paula Jones and Gennifer Flowers. Despite
Clinton’s protestations that he posed no threat to freedom, even the
ACLU admitted in 1998 that the Clinton administration had “engaged in
surreptitious surveillance, such as wiretapping, on a far greater scale
than ever before… The Administration is using scare tactics to acquire
vast new powers to spy on all Americans.”
JIM BOVARD'S FINAL POINT about the need for Americans to keep their
B.S. radars on high alert is good advice, indeed. The efforts to manipulate our
perceptions are ceaseless, and sometimes very subtle.
In today's world, such perception-controlling manipulations
are far more dangerous than ever before. The mainstream media-- once
consisting of many independent organizations in competition with each
other and with chops to be earned by challenging and exposing the
state-- is now entirely in the hands of large commercial enterprises
which are all crony capitalists deeply invested in the state. The
interest and focus of these organizations is now the shoring up of state
At the same time, the population is largely trained to rely
on equally-compromised commercial "social media" sources for what
purports to be "alternative" information and perspectives, but which are
heavily controlled as to what information and views are permitted to
THE FACT IS, in the dark times in which Americans now find
themselves, institutional corruption is near-universal, and much of that
corruption is devoted to keeping us from perceiving the rot and its
threat to our liberty and our well-being. We are surrounded by
conspiracies, with one of the most vigorous of the bunch being the
conspiracy to conceal and protect from meaningful public attention and
understanding all the others while their participants and beneficiaries
loot the middle class and eviscerate our founding principles of
individual sovereignty and
the real rule of law.
The fact is, the state, erected originally to secure the
rights of each of us against all invasions, has become the weapon used
to accomplish such invasions. It is increasingly bent to the fastening
in place of our permanent subjugation to the interests which have gained
control of state power.
Efforts at reform and renewal of the state's proper role
are proving fruitless. Indeed, at this point most Americans stand like
deer in the headlights as their world is torn down around them, without
a single coherent notion as to how to stop the destruction.
We are trained to rely on political parties, the press, and
the mechanisms of the state itself as defenses against the assault we
face. All are co-opted or hollowed-out, and all betray us.
NONETHELESS, AS GRIM as our circumstances have become,
there IS a solution. It is the power of the state that is being used to
destroy liberty. Drastically shrinking that power will amount to a hard
slap on the "reset" button, by which the 800 lb. gorilla currently
having its way with us all on behalf of its handlers resumes its
original and intended stature as a helpful chimp-- healthy and fit for
purpose, but small and incapable of broadly-harmful despotisms in the
face of a necessarily more self-reliant and socially-cohesive citizenry.
Happily, the Founders prepared against the need for just

rightful masters, the American people, shall withhold the requisite
