-Thomas Paine

 

You can't understand the present if you don't understand the past...

Illuminating anniversaries of this week:

August 16- In 1780, the British defeat the revolutionary Americans at Camden, South Carolina.  In 1841, John Tyler vetoes a bill attempting to re-establish the Second Bank of the United States (which had been de-funded 8 years prior by Andrew Jackson).  Hamiltonians rioted, but to no avail.  In 1954, the 3.5-million-word IRC of 1954 replaces the far more transparent 1939 version as the official prima facie evidence of the underlying revenue laws of the United States.  In 1955, yours truly is born (alright, not such a significant anniversary, but what the heck...).  In 1977, Elvis Presley dies from a drug overdose.  In 2010, China becomes the world's second-largest economy.

 

Anniversaries of interest for each day of this week will be found throughout the newsletter below.

HEY, People! Please don't just read what I post here (or anywhere), and nod your head sagely or approvingly and then move on to other things. I don't post in order to affirm your sense of things. I post in order to equip you with perspectives and arguments with which to educate others, and in the expectation that you will forward my posts to other people (or direct them to those posts). PLEASE do those things.

We won't win by YOU knowing what I present. We will win by LOTS OF OTHERS knowing what I present.

A Quiver-Full Of Common Sense

...offered in the hope of equipping an army of dissenters to the COVID death-cult with the simple facts and clear thinking necessary to beat back the insanity.

MY FAMILY HAS JUST had a run-in with C19 (confirmed by multiple tests* and consultations with our primary-care physicians). With staggered start dates over the last two weeks, we each experienced six or seven unpleasant days of fatigue, congestion, coughing, and a few other mild symptoms which varied amongst us.

We are all reasonably fit and healthy-of-diet and lifestyle, and we addressed the onset of illness with nothing but daily multivitamins supplemented with 50 mgs of zinc and 1,100 mgs of vitamin C each day of the affliction. The sinus infection I developed early on (and for which I ended up prescribed Azithromycin on the eighth day after the C19 onset) was the only thing requiring any special treatment.

All five of us are now fully and robustly immunized against the virus, much more effectively than would have been possible from the "vaccines" currently being pushed (more on that will follow below).

I think it's important to point out that Doreen and I are 66. Although the dangers posed by C19 are vanishingly small for any age group, Doreen and I are in a group waved in front of everyone as those for the protection of whom everyone else should be compelled to get injections. Our actual mild and brief unpleasantness once infected by the dread disease should be instructive as a response to the fear-mongers and vaccine-mandate-boosters.

(Still haven't got my sense of smell back, though-- and that IS a big problem. I'm married to a great cook, and I do miss enjoying those wonderful aromas which waft into my office from Doreen's kitchen every day...)

*The tests mean little to nothing, of course. They are completely unreliable as to both their detection of any infection of any kind, and as to what pathogen they might detect-- infirmities highlighted by the recent announcement by the CDC that over the last season fatalities ascribed to the flu have dropped from the normal many tens of thousands to fewer than 1,000-- with all deaths from illnesses with flu-like characteristics plainly being ascribed to C19 instead.

Nonetheless, the deployment of these tests in our cases establish that whatever we had contracted, it was the infection people are being told they must fear under the label 'COVID-19'. Clearly, that fear-mongering is vastly overblown.

***

IT HAS OCCURRED TO ME that the C19 hobgoblin attack (that is, the gross exaggeration of whatever medical threat existed over the last 18 months) is a fine model of the crime of falsely shouting "Fire!" in a crowded theater. As in the latter case, the perps in the C19 panic-mongering should be held fully liable for the evil consequences thereof.

I hope that individual prosecutors in jurisdictions throughout the land soon begin bringing charges against every panic-monger in government and the media-- especially those who suppressed contrary information which would have countered the ruinous panic-- for the suicides, economic losses, drug addictions, harms to children, and all the other resultant damage.

 ***

A WORD TO THOSE WRITING on the "vaccine" and/or "vaccine" mandate issues: Stop including the expression "experimental" in your oppositional arguments or declarations. It's use suggests that if the C19 "vaccines" receive full approval, you will then be okay with them and/or the mandates, and others should be, too. At the least, making "experimental" a part of your refusal expression carelessly imbues "officialdom" and its approvals with a completely undeserved and dangerous mantle of virtue and significance.

It is enough to point out that the "vaccine" is unnecessary, since almost everyone experiences nothing more than mild sickness before naturally establishing robust, actual immunity from further infections.

(Btw, isn't it curious that the best the "vaccines" are said to do is prevent a "vaccinated" person from experiencing a severe case of the disease? How would that possibly be determined, since the vast majority of people suffer nothing but a mild sickness from an infection anyway-- if even that?

What's more, "breakout" infections are happening regularly now-- so much so that the CDC is trying to keep them from being reported. Between that inconvenient fact and the "vaccine" claiming nothing but infection outcomes no different than happen without it, it would appear that these hugely-expensive, sometimes adverse reaction-producing "vaccines" actually do nothing beneficial at all.

Btw, II: Isn't it interesting that nothing is ever said of the extreme rarity of naturally-immune people becoming re-infected? I wonder why that is?)

***

HERE'S ANOTHER CURIOUSITY: Why do we not yet have a real vaccine for C19-- that is, a vaccine consisting of dead or weakened C19 virus, along the safe and effective lines of all other vaccines since the term "vaccine" was coined with the invention of the smallpox inoculation? Though I do not pretend to know the minds of everyone unwilling to get injected with the substances currently flogged under the C19 "vaccine" label, I think I can safely say that the objections of many would not apply to an actual vaccine.

What's more, such a vaccine would actually convey the same level of immunity as is acquired by those who overcome an infection-- that is, a REAL immunity, not a half-assed, "reduced severity" claim with vulnerability to "breakthrough" re-infections.

The very fact that such a real vaccine has not been rolled-out (or is even in development) is strong evidence that there is an agenda behind the relentless push for mRNA "vaccine" injections other than protecting folks against C19.

LIKEWISE, THE STUDIED FAILURE of the C19 panic crowd to acknowledge and incorporate into all discourse and policy recommendations the fact of extremely-widespread naturally-acquired immunity throughout the American population is strong evidence that achieving immunity is NOT the agenda.

That is, every person who has had a bout with the illness is fully-quipped with antibodies of even superior quality and durability to any achieved by the "vaccines" being flogged. Such individuals, in their scores of millions, should be fully accounted for in calculations of "herd immunity" goals and all policy prescriptions regarding access to spaces (such as workplaces, public facilities, and so forth).

Instead, we see a concerted effort to pretend these folks don't exist, even to the point of advocacy of the heinous crime of unnecessary medical treatment (i.e., the "vaccination" of these already-immunized people). As though the goal of "vaccinating" everyone has nothing whatever to do with ensuring protection from C19...

***

SOMEHOW IT NEEDS TO BE SAID YET AGAIN that since anyone with any valid, credible fear of getting the virus can get "vaccinated" and make themselves safe from the exhalations of others, there is no rational basis for any clamor by anyone for anyone else to be compelled or coerced to get the "vaccine", or shunned or shamed for not doing so, even in the name of others. Further, since even those who have been "vaccinated" can still catch and spread the virus, making someone get "vaccinated" protects no one else from anything.

It's shocking how many folks are willing to display their utter stupidity by making that clamor and revealing that they do not understand these simple points!

Such clamorers should be responded-to with those exact sentences:

Since anyone with any valid, credible fear of getting the virus can get "vaccinated" and make themselves safe from the exhalations of others, there is no rational basis for any clamor by anyone for anyone else to be compelled or coerced to get the "vaccine", or shunned or shamed for not doing so, even in the name of others. Further, since even those who have been "vaccinated" can still catch and spread the virus, making someone get "vaccinated" protects no one else from anything.

This should be accompanied with scorn-dripping commentary on how stupid one must be to not get this.

THERE IS AN ONGOING EFFORT TO CENSOR INFORMATION AND VOICES competing with the "official" line in such areas of public discourse as concern public health facts, reasoning and policy; election integrity; police conduct; cultural matters such as sexuality; "transgender" child abuse and so forth. Primarily the suppression is imposed by social media operators, but with increasing control or direction of the effort by government units, now famously making recommendations to the social media companies as to which speech to censor.

This censorship, especially now having crossed the line into becoming a government program, is utterly unacceptable. Indeed, it is a proper cause for forceful response, if not immediately amendable to reversal by other means.

The object of such censorship is to impose the dictatorship of a "technocracy", in which only state-approved "expert" views are permitted visibility, and you are denied the means by which to dispute what may very well be complete falsehoods deployed in furtherance of private or ill-conceived agendas.

The matter is this simple: Without unhindered access to information from all sources and perspectives, unfiltered through any gatekeeper or curator, the sovereign individuals in whom all authority in this country resides-- us-- cannot competently select, instruct or correct our representatives and other elected and appointed agents, all of whom are entrusted with offices for the sole purpose of working OUR will.

***

I HOPE EVERY SINGLE AMERICAN with any kind of opportunity to speak-- be it via a Twitter account, or Facebook, or Gab, or by letter to the editor, or whatever-- will raise his or her voice demanding that the Biden administration abandon its grotesque, abusive, vindictive pursuit of Julian Assange for his courageous work exposing to the American public the secret and illegal behavior of its supposedly subordinate government.

In the absence of such widespread protest thus far, the effort to extradite Assange for a show trial in a Virginia federal court on "espionage" charges continues, despite the case against him having always been legally bogus, and lately having suffered the blow of its key witness admitting that all his adverse testimony against Assange was fabricated.

Freeing Julian Assange would be righteous for nothing more than ending the moral bleed-out occasioned by the abuse to which this good man has been subjected in our name, of course. But there's more.

Think about the revelations of hidden facts related to the C19 hobgoblin and the manner in which it has been fabricated, nurtured and exploited over the last 20 months which might come to light if Assange and his organization get back into service to the world! Think, for instance, about that batch of Fauci emails that got released in response to a FOIA request-- but without any of the massive redactions...

***

WITH AUSTRALIANS IN VARIOUS CITIES and districts being subjected to outright martial law conditions in the name of the C19 hobgoblin with no plausible rationale and with no end in sight, I have to wonder how long it will be before angry groups of citizens begin emerging from their homes and neighborhoods and confronting those presently keeping them imprisoned. Not long at all, one would hope...

HAVE THOSE CLUTCHING THEIR PEARLS so vehemently over the purported hazards of allowing kids into schools without masks ever considered this: In 2019, and EVERY YEAR PRIOR, these children-- any one of whom could have been carrying the flu-- attended school with nary a mask in sight.

Indeed, in all those prior years, decade after decade, masks never made an appearance even in the most fevered dreams of the most fervent Chicken Little on any school board, despite the flu being comparably contagious to C19 (see the stats in the first portion of the comprehensive post on C19 here), and being much more dangerous to children.

And yet, during all those decades life went on-- more healthfully and wholesomely by far than the version of it suffered by kids made to wear masks and to behave as though they are one wrong breath away from a horrible death when in the company of others.

What barbarian, animal-brained thugs are these fearful and fear-mongering hysterics who demand such outlandish and pointless sacrifices from little children!

SPEAKING OF BARBARISM, another point widely overlooked in these arguments over making kids wear masks is the indisputable fact that masking will severely degrade the health of the immune systems in these children. Indeed, I suspect it can be safely said that a masks-in-school policy will guarantee illnesses arising in the affected children (even if exclusively other illnesses than C19, such as the much more dangerous flu).

In fact, it seems certain that mask policies will lead to sickness manifesting in children-- including sickness which is very difficult to symptomatically distinguish from what is labeled C19. This is such an obvious certainty that one has to wonder whether promoting such illness isn't the idea.

What better to keep the richly-exploited panic alive than the proposition that it has become capable of infecting children as it has previously been incapable of doing? (A tiny number of Americans under the age of 19 have been deemed victims of C19 since early 2020, but in nearly all cases, these children were already suffering life-threatening disease of other kinds before being found to also have acquired C19 in their systems.)

Nothing tugs the heartstrings and invites denunciation of the uncooperative like the assertion that what is being asked is for the sake of "the children".

Of course, the real lesson from all that is that those of us on the side of rationality and common sense should be denouncing those who insist that "the children" should degrade their immune systems and become vulnerable to disease by wearing masks and "distancing" themselves from the robust immune support that only comes from close contact with others...

***

I'M GOING TO WRAP UP THIS recital of arguing points with one final thought which I believe trumps all the death-cult lunacies, or should, in any American-- or just grown-up human being-- truly worthy of those labels (and with credit to Jonesy, my excellent cowboy friend from Wyoming, who, back in March of 2020 when the madness was just beginning, reminded me of these powerful words by C.S. Lewis from a 1948 essay, 'On Living in an Atomic Age'). Slide down into these cool and invigorating waters and let the wisdom soak in (substituting "coronavirus" for "atomic bomb" where found):

"In one way we think a great deal too much of the atomic bomb. “How are we to live in an atomic age?” I am tempted to reply: “Why, as you would have lived in the sixteenth century when the plague visited London almost every year, or as you would have lived in a Viking age when raiders from Scandinavia might land and cut your throat any night; or indeed, as you are already living in an age of cancer, an age of syphilis, an age of paralysis, an age of air raids, an age of railway accidents, an age of motor accidents.

"In other words, do not let us begin by exaggerating the novelty of our situation. Believe me, dear sir or madam, you and all whom you love were already sentenced to death before the atomic bomb was invented: and quite a high percentage of us were going to die in unpleasant ways. We had, indeed, one very great advantage over our ancestors; anesthetics; but we have that still. It is perfectly ridiculous to go about whimpering and drawing long faces because the scientists have added one more chance of painful and premature death to a world which already bristled with such chances and in which death itself was not a chance at all, but a certainty.

"This is the first point to be made: and the first action to be taken is to pull ourselves together. If we are all going to be destroyed by an atomic bomb, let that bomb when it comes find us doing sensible and human things; praying, working, teaching, reading, listening to music, bathing the children, playing tennis, chatting to our friends over a pint and a game of darts, not huddled together like frightened sheep and thinking about bombs. They may break our bodies (a microbe can do that) but they need not dominate our minds."

Now, isn't that so much better a perspective on a disease survived by 99.97% of everyone who contracts it than the utter insanity of those who pretend that everything must change in response to it?

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

-Proverbs 25:26

 

"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."

-Everett Hale

 

"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."

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.

"It is not the function of our Government to keep the citizen from falling into error; it is the function of the citizen to keep the Government from falling into error."

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 the presentations and resources offered on this site and in my other work of any value to you?

Tim Kendrick has posted a video 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.

How To Be A Leader In The CtC Community

It's simple:

KNOW THE TRUTH ABOUT THE TAX IN DETAIL

LEAD BY EXAMPLE

KNOW WHERE TO FIND THE RESOURCES

BE FAMILIAR WITH THE SCAMS, THE MISUNDERSTANDINGS, AND THE TROLL-POLLUTION

TAKE CHARGE IN YOUR STATE FORUM, HELPING EVERYONE TO THINK CLEARLY AND STAY ON TOPIC

All-in-all, just be the sort of person for others that you would go to yourself for trustworthy leadership.

Leadership is a challenge. But it's not complicated, and you can do it.

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...

We Will Not Comply: A Campaign Against Medical Tyranny

by Brandon Smith

I have been feverishly writing lately on covid mandates and vaccine passports issues, and I’m sure most readers understand why – We are currently at the cusp of a great conflict against the powers that be; people who are exploiting the (mostly manufactured) covid crisis for unprecedented political and economic control. And when I say “manufactured”, I mean that there is no crisis, no need for mandates, no need for lockdowns and no need for vaccine passports.

We are dealing with a virus that around 99.7% of people will easily survive according to the medical establishment’s own studies and stats as well as numerous independent studies, yet, for some reason we are being bombarded with fear mongering from the media and from governments.

Why is the only solution being suggested to the general public involve us giving up all of our freedoms and medical autonomy? Why is 99.7% of the population supposed to lock down, mask up and submit to an experimental mRNA vaccine with no long term testing data to prove its safety? Why don’t the 0.26% of people that are truly at risk of dying from the virus simply take precautions or stay home while the rest of us get on with normal life? Hell, I would be fine with contributing to a fund to help support the 0.26% at risk, to help their families and help with their medical bills.

The Federal Reserve and other central banks burned trillions of dollars in stimulus measures and PPP loans to keep businesses from going completely bankrupt, and to keep jobless “non-essential” workers from starving during the initial shutdowns. But, we could have simply kept the economy going this entire time and paid a fraction of that cost helping the tiny minority of people that would actually suffer from the illness.

Yes, that’s right, I’ll say it again and again because I STILL to this day see the media and misinformed covid cultists continually claim the death rate of covid is much higher. It is not. The median Infection Fatality rate of covid is ONLY 0.26%. This is a FACT. This is the science according the vast majority of medical studies out there on the IFR. Let me repeat: The entire world is being locked down and told we have to give up our inherent human liberties because 0.26% of the population might get more than sniffles and brain fog from a covid infection. Why?

Well, that’s easy; because the covid response and restrictions have nothing to do with public health and everything to do with public control.

Afterword

"AND THEN, WE MUST FOLLOW THROUGH ON OUR PROMISE." So ends Brandon Smith's excellent essay, and indeed, that's what we must do.

This C19 hobgoblin-flogging has already gone well past tolerable. As it ramps up into another wave, with rapidly-growing censorship of challenging voices and widespread "vaccine passport" impositions in cities and businesses, those of us not inclined to drink the Kool-Aid, chant the chants and wear the death-cult masks must stand up, and quickly, while we still can.

I am reminded of Patrick Henry's 'Give Me Liberty' speech:

They tell us, sir, that we are weak; unable to cope with so formidable an adversary. But when shall we be stronger?

Will it be the next week, or the next year? Will it be when we are totally disarmed, and when a British guard shall be stationed in every house?

Shall we gather strength by irresolution and inaction? Shall we acquire the means of effectual resistance by lying supinely on our backs and hugging the delusive phantom of hope, until our enemies shall have bound us hand and foot?

Sir, we are not weak if we make a proper use of those means which the God of nature hath placed in our power. The millions of people, armed in the holy cause of liberty, and in such a country as that which we possess, are invincible by any force which our enemy can send against us.

Besides, sir, we shall not fight our battles alone. There is a just God who presides over the destinies of nations, and who will raise up friends to fight our battles for us.

The battle, sir, is not to the strong alone; it is to the vigilant, the active, the brave.

Besides, sir, we have no election. If we were base enough to desire it, it is now too late to retire from the contest. There is no retreat but in submission and slavery!

Our chains are forged! Their clanking may be heard on the plains of Boston! The war is inevitable--and let it come! I repeat it, sir, let it come.

As Henry says, "Shall we acquire the means of effectual resistance by lying supinely on our backs and hugging the delusive phantom of hope until our enemies have bound us hand and foot?" I think not.

The biggest mistake anyone could make right now is to fail to recognize that liberty and the rule of law are under a vicious assault RIGHT NOW. This can be known from a proper assessment of the insignificance of the actual threat from C19, even if one is blind to all other indicators.

Organized enemies of liberty have infested positions of power and influence throughout the Western world and are actively driving fear-addled masses toward a point of imposing technocratic totalitarianism upon themselves and the rest of us.

AMERICANS WHO TREASURE INDIVIDUAL LIBERTY need to face the uncomfortable fact that only the dramatic diminishment of the power and footprint of government-- the chief tool of subjugation used by those with designs upon the rest of us-- can begin to stop the atrocities. It is the giant centralized federal power structure that has eclipsed and prevented the vigorous, free exchange of information and analysis which would otherwise have equipped everyone to quickly recognize the true nature and scope of the "pandemic" and sensibly address it on an individual basis and without sacrificing our liberties and the rule of law. (See more on that here.)

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.

A Little Extra

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...

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.
