The COVID-19 - Election Fraud Connection

A lot of folks are letting themselves be spun into perpetual ineffectiveness against the coup by failing to recognize the "pandemic" as a contrivance in service to that crime against democracy.

SO, IT HAS RECENTLY BEEN REVEALED that the "kidnap plot" targeting Michigan governor Gretchen Whitmer, of which much was made last October smearing Donald Trump as the supposedly responsible party, was actually a false flag affair concocted by the FBI and clearly for the benefit of the Biden campaign. (See more about that in the 'Other Voices' feature of this newsletter.) As such, that Deep State pretense, and all the exploitation of the fiction by the MSM, amounts to a kind of election fraud.

Likewise, the suppression of the Hunter Biden laptop story by "big tech" prior to the election (and the cooperation of the MSM in that suppression) with false assertions that the story was "Russian disinformation"-- after nearly a year of the FBI keeping the story under wraps before the New York Post got ahold of the information in October and attempted to get it out to what would clearly be a very interested electorate (see the reporting here)-- was a form of election fraud.

The intimidation of election certification officials with threats of violence, such as happened in Michigan (see here and here for some examples)-- which were given menacing substance by the calculated refusal of city governments to enforce the law against violent Democrat-supporting rioters during the summer-- was a form of election fraud.

In short, "election fraud" is not confined in its meaning to the falsifying of votes. In its broader sense, "election fraud" includes any deliberate interference with free, informed and independent decision-making by the electorate, such as through fraudulent ascription of responsibility for a domestic terrorist plot to one candidate, keeping real information that is likely to diminish support for another candidate hidden, and securing election certification through threats.

But these are not the only examples of this sort of election fraud in the 2020 vote.

“The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary.”

-H.L. Mencken

 

"You never want a serious crisis to go to waste. And what I mean by that is an opportunity to do things that you think you could not do before."

-Rahm Emanuel, Chief of Staff to Barack Obama

IN EARLY 2020, a long-game set-up of Donald Trump began with the mainstream media waxing ever-more hyperbolic about the purported threat of COVID-19 (C19). Trump, predictably, reacted without great urgency.

Frankly, though I generally have little good to say about Donald Trump, his restrained response to what was ridiculously trumpeted as "the Black Death come again" was admirable. I have no idea how well-equipped the Trump team may have been with insight into the long record of grossly over-blown pandemic mortality projections by the likes of Neil Ferguson, the Imperial College prognosticator of millions of deaths on whom the MSM depended for its frothy warnings, but hindsight reveals that the White House take on the situation was far more appropriate than the hysterical lockdown responses adopted and encouraged by Democrats and their media allies.

Nonetheless, as the panic-mongering gained traction with the public, Trump, and many Republican governors and legislators taking similarly measured (or, at least, calmer) positions in response were successfully portrayed by the media as irresponsibly disengaged. Democrats-- and in particular, the Joe Biden campaign-- were portrayed by the same plainly co-opted (or co-conspiring) media as the side taking the allegedly existential threat of C19 seriously, and championing policies which would save everyone's lives (in contrast to the Trump Republicans, whose policies would kill us all).

A major element of these characterizations was the persistent beating of the hysteria drums over C19 in the media and from certain officials, fortified and buttressed by big-tech suppression of any well-informed and well-credentialed voices which might nurture calmer and wiser perspectives on the nature and severity of the threat.

"When the people pushing you down a particular path work hard to keep you from hearing other views on the proper course, you can be sure you're getting a bum steer..."

All of those calmer and wiser voices have since proven to have been correct, and have quietly been acknowledged as such even by organs of the hysteria like the CDC and WHO (see here and here, for example).

TAKEN AS A WHOLE, it becomes apparent that C19 was fraudulently made into a major hobgoblin to accomplish a dramatic distortion of the vote in 2020 by falsely coloring Donald Trump and Republicans generally as those to whom another term in office could not be safely entrusted. Anyone who followed the course of the campaigns throughout 2020 observed this dynamic play out.

Joe Biden hid in his basement and invariably "masked up" whenever on camera or at one of his largely empty campaign events. Trump enjoyed huge crowds while consistently and prominently eschewing expressions of fear-- both monolithically denounced by the MSM which, with its partners in big tech, kept expert opinions supportive of Trump's behavior out of public view.

Even with the C19 fraud and the other broad-form fraud mentioned above, it still appears that a great deal of outright false voting proved necessary to overcome Trump's greater popularity (or more accurately, perhaps, the greater disdain of the Biden ticket).

But even while those more mundane crimes need to be brought to the light of day, and all the forensic auditing that is going on right now-- or is soon to begin-- in select counties around the country is extremely important, we must not forget the C19 fraud itself. The fact is, that one is still in play.

Every ongoing anxiety about the virus being harbored in any American breast is a stumbling block in front of someone who otherwise might be waking up to the national ruination that is the Biden agenda. Everyone persisting in fear is unable to perceive reality with objective eyes.

MY MESSAGE, then, is that all who deem the preservation of liberty and the rule of law to be important should be doing all that can be done to dismiss the C19 hobgoblin from the minds of their fellow citizens. For some of you, this means dismissing the fear from your own minds, I know. But it needs to be done.

Btw, none of this is about Donald Trump. And just as it is important that fear of C19 be banished from American consciousness, so, too, must be the making of opposition to Biden about devotion to Donald Trump.

Just as allowing fear of C19 to persist helps shield the Biden wrecking ball from proper consideration by the eyes of many Americans, so, too, does the notion that criticism of Biden comes from adulation for Donald Trump. Trump deserves no adulation-- he is no saint, and is merely somewhat less of a sinner than Hillary Clinton and Joe Biden (or less broadly dangerous a sinner, anyway).

Keep this about election integrity, period, just as it properly is. Frankly, if the majority of a properly-informed electorate had actually wanted Joe Biden as president, I would just hold my nose and quiet my voice.

It is not because of any love for Donald Trump, but only because no majority of a properly-informed electorate chose Biden that I raise my voice now. The same should be true for you, and you really should be raising that voice, in a very big way.

"Like a muddied stream or a polluted fountain is the righteous man who gives way before the wicked."

"I am only one, but I am one. I cannot do everything, but I can do something. What I can do, I should do and, with the help of God, I will do."

"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."

More CtC-Educated Victories For The Rule Of Law

...from the true Americans who are standing up and starving down the Beast-- this week including a nice FRP victory!

LES & PATRICIA V. have stood up like real adults and proper spiritual heirs of the Founders. Les & Patricia have reclaimed everything withheld from them during 2020 against the possibility that they had engaged in taxable activities and given over to the feds-- Social security taxes, Medicare taxes, and all. A quietly-law-abiding IRS issued that refund with only minimal delay, adding in an appropriate and statutorily-specified amount of interest:

Here is the filing that produced this victory on behalf of the Founders' and Framers' design by which the People retain direct, individual control over a state which is legitimate in its actions only when serving to secure the personal rights and liberties of Les and Patricia and every other individual American.

***

DAN BENHAM, a man once misled by errant "tax honesty" theorists to the point of criminal charges and imprisonment, but who found CtC and for years now has watched while the refunds he claims of federal withholdings have been zeroing-out the restitution ordered by the sentencing court in his case (as discussed and documented here), has secured a complete refund from New York of everything withheld from him and given over to the state during 2020:

 Here is the filing with which Dan secured this victory. As a side note of no great significance but with a bit of pleasing uplift to offer, I must observe that Dan had overlooked actually specifying on his return that he wanted the overpayment refunded. The thoughtful state of New York had Dan's back:

***

KEITH BLACKBURN, a professional big-rig driver, has also secured a complete refund of everything withheld from him and given over to Uncle Sam against the mistaken notion that his economic activities were of the federally-taxable variety-- plus interest to make him whole for the IRS delay in returning his money:

 

Here is the return that secured Keith's debut victory on behalf of the rule of law.

***

FINALLY, CALIFORNIA WARRIOR ADI C. has secured a nice victory over a typically-spurious "frivolous return penalty" assertion by the California Franchise Tax Board. Here is the notice Adi received informing him of the FTB "determination":

Here is Adi's well-educated, standing-my-ground response.

And here is the outcome:

SO, HATS OFF to Les & Patricia, Dan, Keith and Adi! Their great victories join those of the tens of thousands of other awakened and activated Americans represented here. Each constitutes another critical step toward the restoration of the Founders republic and the true rule of law.

Don't you wish your victories were proudly posted, too?

It's easy. Stand up on behalf of the law, and then share the evidence.

That's all there is to it!

BTW, DON'T YOU WISH YOUR INSPIRING BEING-THE-STORM VIDEO was posted, too, like those you can enjoy here? This is easy to do, and very important (plus it can get you some great LHC swag!). See (and carefully read in their entirety) these guidelines and encouragements.

Remember, it's all about upholding the law, and that is YOUR responsibility. Awakening others to this high and honorable duty is the best way to make it happen.

Brief Comments On Selected Subjects In The News

...because something really needs to be said...

THE CDC AND A SELECTION OF its fellow travelers have now-- to some extent explicitly and to some extent implicitly-- admitted that the "vaccines" are not fit for purpose, yielding no reliable immunity from being sickened by C19 and hence becoming a carrier/spreader of the virus.

Btw, to the extent that this failure of function is attributed to the arising of "variants", keep this in mind: IF the vaccine is/was "97% effective" against the original virus (as we had been assured), it can only NOT be just as effective against any variant if that variant lacks the "spike protein" at which the "vaccines" are singularly targeted. (And any variant lacking the spike protein is essentially harmless.) As I said last week in regard to "variants" ("Delta" or otherwise): Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me.

IN "TESTIMONY" BEFORE THE House committee purportedly investigating the events of January 6 at the Capitol building, black Capitol Police officer Harry Dunn claimed (assumedly under oath) that part of the crowd on hand that day to encourage a fair hearing of election fraud evidence prior to voting on certification of the November 2020 election results chanted angrily at him, with repeated use of the "n" word, after learning that he had voted for Joe Biden. I'm not prepared to directly accuse Mr. Dunne of perjury, but I am very skeptical of this claim.

It is easy to see why a claim like Dunn's would serve the interests of the Democrats who brought him in to address the committee, who would thus have a reason to encourage false testimony.

No evidence of any Trump supporters ever doing the same to any other of the millions of black voters who backed Biden has ever appeared or even been alleged.

The people Dunn smeared with his assertion were/are ardent supporters of black candidates and officeholders such as John James, Tim Scott and Ben Carson, and are avid fans of black pundits Candace Owens, Larry Elder, Thomas Sowell and the late Walter Williams.

Many of the Trump supporters on hand at the Capitol on January 6 are themselves black.

Dunn's story is simply not credible, without serious evidence in support, and this conclusion is emphasized by the fact that were Dunn's claims true, there would be video able to prove it. Every square foot of the Capitol and its environs is surveilled 24 hours a day by cameras, with an aggregated 14,000 hours of video just from January 6 alone currently sitting in official hands. A great deal more video was recorded privately that day.

If what Dunn claims is true, there would be video, and we would already have seen it. Video of Trump supporters chanting the "n" word at a black cop would be so beneficial to the absurd Democrat narrative alleging that Biden opponents are "white supremacists" that we would all be long since sick of endless replays on CNN, MSNBC, NBC and so forth.

That we have NOT seen such video is strong evidence that Dunn is lying, and was deliberately brought in the committee hearing in order to air the lies. Again, this is not an accusation, and I certainly could be wrong... You decide.

I'VE HAD THIS NOTION SINCE last Friday when the Olympics began: Next time, American athletes should participate as representatives of the home states, rather than of the USA. This would be just as legitimate as athletes of the European Union competing in the names of their home countries, and would remind Americans that the USA is actually a federation of independent countries, not a single big country divided into 50 provinces, as often appears to be imagined in Washington.

Btw, I'll also take this opportunity to air a long-running complaint about Olympic coverage on television-- the omission from that coverage of pretty much all events in which no American is expected to do well. I want to see the athletics, not participate in a jingoistic flag-waving rally. I want to see judo, and table tennis, and shooting sports, and trampoline. I DON'T want to see five hours in prime-time of beach volleyball.

Maybe I'm the only one who feels this way. But I doubt it... Perhaps if we all write to NBC and complain, something will be done. But, I'm sorry to say, I doubt that, too.

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

...an important action item opportunity.

FRIENDS, THE SPORADIC BITS OF EASING of the despotic measures to which most of the country has been subjected this year should not be allowed to bleed off the head of steam you probably had been developing. The offenses happened, and they're far from over. Stay hot.

And while you are all warmed up, and while others, if they're smart, are just as hot, I'd like you to send an email (and Facebook post, or whatever) with the following content to everyone you can (with a request that they pass it along, in turn):

[Name], over the last several months you've watched as over-fed state power has been used to literally destroy classical Western civilization and impose a new despotic paradigm. No dissent or debate permitted-- no permission or agreement sought.

YOU KNOW where this will end up if the arrogant state power being used to make this happen isn't radically diminished in size, influence, resources and popular support, and exposed as an opportunistic exploiter of legal ignorance (an ignorance which it has been nurturing in the average mind for decades).

Those things having not yet happened, you should be quaking in your boots-- and you probably are.

Isn't it time-- and past time-- for you to begin helping to make those desperately-needed defensive changes take place? There is only one way these things can happen short of a who-knows-what we'll-end-up-with explosion of violence. I'm going to show it to you.

Read this little two-page document. Click on the links at the end.

When you're done with that reading, you'll know what to do next.

BTW, REMEMBER, ALSO, THAT EVERY AMERICAN has lately been given a stark lesson in the fact that government officials at all levels will lie to you and violate the law without batting an eye. They will do so any time it serves their agenda, and you don't call them out for it.

If you know anyone who has been persisting in denial on the truth about the income tax, you know such nonsense is usually be grounded in some version or another of, "That can't be true..." or "They would never do something like that...". Now's the time to put a pin in that delusional bubble.

As the C19 hoax has starkly shown, "that" certainly CAN be true, and they certainly WOULD do something like that.

Use this evidence in all your outreach efforts.

Regarding Trolleries

(Deceitful efforts to discourage Americans from learning the truth about the "income tax")

 

 

FOR ALL THE YEARS SINCE 2003 when CtC was first published, the government has engaged in a concerted effort to frighten people away from its truths. This effort involves official government websites and press releases touting an occasional court ruling that appears to be at odds with some CtC-revelation (but without details sufficient to expose the real substance of the ruling)-- and sometimes even more mendacious behavior.

Are You Having Trouble Spreading The Word?

SKEPTICISM (SOMETIMES INVOKED BY FEAR) IS TO BE EXPECTED when you're trying to explain to someone that everything they've been encouraged their whole lives to believe about something as entrenched and significant as the income tax is basically nonsense. So here's a way to help cut through the resistance:

Ask your listener how he or she would react if you were to show an announcement from the Commissioner of Internal Revenue admitting that the tax doesn't apply to the earnings of most Americans and is misapplied most of the time because people don't understand how it works? Or how about if you showed a ruling from the Supreme Court saying the same?

Now you just have to explain that you're going to show exactly those things-- but because the state really doesn't want people to know this, these things haven't been said quite as forthrightly as we would all wish. It's going to take a bit more work to take these admissions in than is sufficient for just reading a press release. But it'll be worth the effort...

The FBI Is Orchestrating Its Own Terrorism Plots

Questioning the FBI's role in 1/6 was maligned by corporate media as deranged. But only ignorance about the FBI or a desire to deceive could produce such a reaction.

by Glenn Greenwald

The narrative that domestic anti-government extremism is the greatest threat to U.S. national security — the official position of the U.S. security state and the Biden administration — received its most potent boost in October 2020, less than one month before the 2020 presidential election. That was when the F.B.I. and Michigan state officials announced the arrest of thirteen people on terrorism, conspiracy and weapons charges, with six of them accused of participating in a plot to kidnap Michigan’s Democratic Governor Gretchen Whitmer, who had been a particular target of criticism from President Trump for her advocacy for harsh COVID lockdown measures.

The headlines that followed were dramatic and fear-inducing: “F.B.I. Says Michigan Anti-Government Group Plotted to Kidnap Gov. Gretchen Whitmer,” announced The New York Times. That same night, ABC News began its broadcast this way: "Tonight, we take you into a hidden world, a place authorities say gave birth to a violent domestic terror plot in Michigan — foiled by the FBI.”

Democrats and liberal journalists instantly seized on this storyline to spin a pre-election theme that was as extreme as it was predictable. Gov. Whitmer herself blamed Trump, claiming that the plotters “heard the president’s words not as a rebuke but as a rallying cry — as a call to action.” Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) claimed that “the president is a deranged lunatic and he’s inspired white supremacists to violence, the latest of which was a plot to kidnap Gov. Whitmer,” adding: “these groups have attempted to KILL many of us in recent years. They are following Trump’s lead.” Vox’s paid television-watcher and video-manipulator, Aaron Rupar, drew this inference: “Trump hasn't commended the FBI for breaking up Whitmer kidnapping/murder plot because as always he doesn't want to denounce his base.” Michael Moore called for Trump's arrest for having incited the kidnapping plot against Gov. Whitmer. One viral tweet from a popular Democratic Party activist similarly declared: “Trump should be arrested for this plot to kidnap Governor Whitmer. There’s no doubt he inspired this terrorism.”

New York Governor Andrew Cuomo instantly declared it to be a terrorist attack on America: “We must condemn and call out the cowardly plot against Governor Whitmer for what it is: Domestic terrorism.” MSNBC's social media star Kyle Griffin cast it as a coup attempt: “The FBI thwarted what they described as a plot to violently overthrow the government and kidnap Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer.” CNN's Jim Sciutto pronounced it “deeply alarming.”

A lengthy CNN article — dressed up as an investigative exposé that was little more than stenography of FBI messaging disseminated from behind a shield of anonymity — purported in the headline to take the reader “Inside the plot to kidnap Gov. Whitmer.” It claimed that it all began when angry discussions about COVID restrictions “spiraled into a terrorism plot, officials say, with Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer the target of a kidnapping scheme.” CNN heralded the FBI's use of informants and agents to break up the plot but depicted them as nothing more than passive bystanders reporting what the domestic terrorists were plotting:

The Watchmen had been flagged to the FBI in March, and one of its members was now an informant. That informant, others on the inside, as well as undercover operatives and recordings, allowed the bureau to monitor what was happening from then on.

The article never once hinted at let alone described the highly active role of these informants and agents themselves in encouraging and designing the plot. Instead, it depicted these anti-government activists as leading one another — on their own — to commit what CNN called “treason in a quaint town.” The more honest headline for this CNN article would have been: “Inside the FBI's tale of the plot to kidnap Gov. Whitmer.” But since CNN never questions the FBI — they employ their top agents and operatives once they leave the bureau in order to disseminate their propaganda — this is what the country got from The Most Trusted Name in News:

Afterword

AS USUAL, GLENN GREENWALD is incisive and informative. What a blessing that he has managed to free himself from the straitjacket of the thoroughly-corrupted Intercept and resume his former and long-time role as a real journalist!

I have nothing to add to, or about, the content of Greenwald's article (save only to observe that as usual, Glenn is too much the gentleman, and strikes his blows against the perps he exposes too gently). But no one reading the material can be missing the story, so Greenwald's professional restraint does no harm.

WHAT I WILL SAY is that Americans need to take in the implications of the consistent rogue behavior of the FBI (and other "establishment" and "official" malefactors) and face the fact that only the dramatic diminishment of the power and footprint of these criminals can shield the rest of us from their evil.

Happily, the Founders prepared against this precise need, knowing that all governments inevitably lurch toward the accretion of power unto themselves and the corruption which accompanies all accretions of state power. They put into place a solution ready to the hand of individual Americans, entirely bypassing all supervision or approval of the state.

The only requirements to implement that solution are eyes with which to see the problem, reasoning with which to recognize the truth and rightness of the solution, and courage, confidence and clarity of mind enough to pull the trigger in the face of the natural and predictable effort of the targeted rogue state to discourage doing so.

Learn about the Founder's solution at this link. Then help others do so, as well.

Time is running out.

EVEN AS ARDENT A STATIST as Abraham Lincoln, in announcing his willingness to burn the Southern states to the ground in order to keep them paying the tariff for the benefit of Northern interests in his first inaugural address on March 4, 1861, paid at least lip service to the Founders design of leaving control over the fuel available to feed the fires Washington wants to light in the hands of the individual citizenry when he said, "Doing this I deem to be only a simple duty on my part; and I shall perform it, unless my rightful masters, the American people, shall withhold the requisite means..."

Lawyers: It's Way Past Time For You All To Queue Up!

[Y]ou really need to familiarize yourself with Pete Hendrickson's absolutely magnificent work at his website and in his book(s). He has, brilliantly and lucidly, "cracked the code" regarding the federal income EXCISE tax(es)."

-Mark C. Phillips, JD

 

"...I find your work fascinatingly simple to understand."

-Jerry Arnowitz, JD

 

"Your book is a masterpiece!"

-Michael Carver, JD

 

"Received your book yesterday. Started reading at 11 PM, finished at 4 AM." "I have 16 feet (literally 16' 4.5") of documents supporting just about everything in your book." "Your book should be required reading for every lawyer before being admitted to any Bar." "I hope you sell a million of them."

-John O'Neil Green, JD

 

“Thanks again for your efforts, Pete. They mean an awful lot to a lot of people.” “…as an attorney, I am humbled by your knowledge and ability in navigating the law. THANK YOU for your hard work and sacrifice.”

-Eric Smithers, JD

 

"I am an attorney and want to give a testimonial to your book, which I find to be compelling. I am exercising these rights for myself and my adult children. I'm even considering making this my new avenue of law practice."

-Nancy "Ana" Garner, JD

Learn what these colleagues already know, then step forward and become part of a coordinated, mutually-supportive squadron focused on developing strategy and deploying the law in courtrooms across the country. There's a lot of suing that needs doing right now.

Do you know someone truly steeped in the Kool-Aid?

 

I mean someone who finds it easier to believe that the far-better-educated, far-more-suspicious-of-government Americans of a hundred years ago were complete morons who granted authority to the state to take whatever it wished from themselves and their posterity than to imagine that they themselves simply misunderstand the true nature of the income tax? Even while knowing that their beliefs about the tax are derived entirely from the representations of those who profit from those beliefs (like tax bureaucrats and "tax professionals")?

 

Do you know someone like that? Shake them awake with the latest (sixteenth) edition of CtC!

C'mon! CtC can't be right! You're crazy!

If CtC were actually right, it would mean the government's been concealing and denying and suppressing the truth for years on end, and everybody knows THAT would never happen...

PRO TIP: If I were the IRS and I wanted to discourage people from rebutting allegations that they had done things I can tax, and wanted to keep them from successfully reclaiming withheld or paid-in money, I would salt the "tax honesty" community with passionate-seeming "legal researchers" who would warn anyone whose ear they captured that filing a 1040 is a bad idea for one reason or another...

About The Author

Pete Hendrickson is possibly the most effective lawyer in history, even while never having set foot in a law school, nor ever being a card-carrying member of "the bar". He is the first American in history to secure a complete refund of Social Security and Medicare ‘contributions’ withheld from his earnings (along with all other property taken for federal taxes); further, since 2003 students of his legal analyses and arguments in ‘Cracking the Code- The Fascinating Truth About Taxation In America’’ (CtC), and its sequel, 'Was Grandpa Really a Moron?' have been routinely retaining and recovering billions of dollars which otherwise-- wrongly, but as a matter of course-- would have gone to federal or state government treasuries. This despite concerted efforts by government to suppress his work, and in some cases vigorously oppose the claims by his students.

Hendrickson is also a widely-read essayist on matters of politics, public policy and law; many of these works are collected in his second book, ‘Upholding the Law And Other Observations’. He is a member of Mensa; an award-winning artist; and has paid his dues as a youth soccer coach. He is a long-time political activist as well, and has served as co-chair and platform convention delegate of Michigan’s largest county Libertarian Party organization; as a consultant to the National Right to Work Foundation and Citizens for a Sound Economy; as a member of the Heartland Institute; and as a member of the International Society for Individual Liberty. He is a frequent radio-show guest on stations across the country.

Hendrickson's business career has included nearly a decade-and-a-half at the leading edge of the renewable-energy industry, both as Director of Purchasing and Materials Management and member of the R&D board at Starpak Energy Systems, the mid-west's then-largest solar heating and energy-recovery-and re-utilization company; and as founder and president of AFJ Inc., a high-efficiency lighting design, manufacture and installation firm.

Beginning in the mid-1990s and continuing for the twelve years before his present full-time focus on the restoration of the rule of law in America, Hendrickson directed purchasing activities for the $84 million-a-year multi-family-housing division of the Farmington Hills, Michigan branch of Edward Rose and Sons, with responsibility for 18,000+ apartments, direct supervision of 35 technicians and agents, and incidental authority over several hundred divisional workers. He also ran the division's 10 cable television earth-station and distribution systems in four states, and designed and administered the company's website.

On rather the other end of the spectrum, amidst these more mundane pursuits Hendrickson co-founded and was the primary creative force behind a small board- and card-game company that enjoyed a modest success for several years.

Hendrickson makes his home in southeast Michigan, with his wife and two children. He is currently working on his next book.
