New victories in enforcing the rule of law-- including a nice win over a typically-bogus IRS Notice
FOR SOME TIME NOW my focus has been on the deconstruction
of the American Experiment under the pretext of the
"everything-is-different-now" media-made hoax of a dire pandemic from
which there is no safety except in abject subordination to the notions
and decrees of those running the state. I've been only occasionally
posting victories on the tax front for celebration by the community.
That easing of focus on the "tax" aspect of the
and the shift of attention to the "rule of law" part has no real
downside. 18 unbroken years of victories and the sporadic deployment of
lame pretenses of tax agency resistance to the
truth over the same 18 years have made the continuing presentation of
more examples of either one unnecessary for the proving of any point.
BUT STILL, while the immediate threat of the C19 coup to
all our well-being is of more immediate import, the happy victories by
CtC warriors on
the tax front offer great opportunities for uplift in otherwise pretty
dark times. So, let's enjoy a bunch of those victories this week, and
take our hats off to the heroes!
We'll start with...
MATTEA BITTNER, excellent daughter of the excellent parents
Kiki Bittner and husband (see videos
here), has secured a complete
refund from the feds of everything withheld from her against the
possibility that any of her economic activities were taxable-- with
BRIAN FARMER has
secured a nice victory reclaiming everything withheld from him and given
over to Ohio during 2020:
Here is the
return producing this victory (with Brian's 4852s attached to show
the withheld amounts, although they were not included with the filing,
nor was the requested 'Schedule of Ohio Withholding', a new provision
which Brian overlooked).
BTW, Brian says that the reason the amount on this refund
check is slightly smaller than the amount claimed on his return is due
to Ohio not being able to grasp his explanation that $30 of what had
been withheld from him during the year had mistakenly been sent to an
inapplicable local tax jurisdiction by the withholder after flagging the
return over the discrepancy. The state recalculated the claim omitting
the $30 (but adding interest to the amount of withholding it
acknowledged due to the processing delay).
TIMOTHY BELL shares his three latest victories, starting
with his complete refund from the feds of all withholding during 2020,
Then there are these two from Virginia, the first for 2019:
this return, plus interest (but with $476 held back by the state
against Timothy's 2020 Virginia claim, which the state had been holding
back on awaiting his submission of the federal acknowledgment only just
GABRIELLA CARDENAS, excellent granddaughter of the
excellent David & Valerie Denning, shares her debut victory-- a complete
refund from the feds of everything claimed of what was withheld from her in 2020, plus
Here is the return by which Gabriella achieved this win.
(The careful eye familiar with the special provisions regarding COVID
Relief Package unemployment in 2020 will note some mistakes made in
computing this one, and there's an error in the amount of withholding
reported here, too. But according to my fairly careful eye,
after the mistakes are all rectified Gabriella will have another $396
coming back to her-- plus interest, which will be posted at that time.)
Piotr & Stephanie Bondaryk
NOW LET'S ENJOY THE NICE VICTORY LAST MONTH by Piotr
and Stephanie Bondaryk over a spurious IRS "Notice of Deficiency"
alleging a big tax and penalties liability concerning 2017. As will be
seen, when Pitor and Stephanie confidently and resolutely stood their
ground, the bogus allegations melted away.
The story began when the Bondaryks received this CP2000
"Proposed Changes" notice alleging shortfalls in their 2017 return--
which had already been accepted, processed, and refunded in full (as
can be seen on this page):
The delay letter was followed, a bit past the 60 days for
which the agency had asked, with
another letter. This one declared that "the information we have
received was not sufficient for us to change our determination [on the
basis of which the "change" proposal had been made]", and went on to
tell Piotr and Stephanie to expect a "Statutory Notice of Deficiency"
within 3 or 4 weeks. 11 days later, that notice arrived:
Confident in their
knowledge of the tax and the law-- and resolute in their respect for the
latter, even in the face of its "official" enemies-- on April 15, 2020,
Piotr and Stephanie again expressed
their dispute with the now more-formalized false allegations of
liabilities by which the IRS hoped to reverse its original and
inconvenient loss of revenue to the couple's proper claim of refund.
Months went by, until August 20 of 2020, when the IRS sent
its next letter. This one
acknowledged receipt of the Bondaryk's last response to the paper
assault, warned them that the now-long-since expired deadline for
petitioning Tax Court was not extended by their response, and told the
couple that the agency needed another 60 days to ruminate on its
conundrum of having targeted its nonsense at well-educated real
Americans who simply would not back down.
Piotr and Stephanie promptly slapped the agency sharply,
with this. Two months later the
IRS replied-- but not to Piotr and Stephanie's most recent broadside.
This latest agency letter
purported to reply once again to the April 15 response Piotr and
Stephanie had made to the "Notice of Deficiency", but this time
specifically challenging the rebuttal of a payor's "wage" allegations
which is included in the couple's return.
Piotr and Stephanie replied to that challenge of their
"wage" rebuttal on February 3, 2021, with
restatement/clarification of their return testimony. The next thing
to arrive from the IRS was a double-down on the scare notices:
However... when a few more months had gone by WITHOUT
"payment [being] received immediately", the tax agency threw in the
towel. On June 10, 2021, it sent this
letter acknowledging Piotr and Stephanie's February 3 response and
saying, "we need 90 days" to "process all your information". About 9
weeks later came this surrender notice:
CONGRATULATIONS to Piotr and Stephanie! They've stood tall
for the rule of law, in the snarling face of a junk-yard dog.
And while we're in the congratulatory mode for this good
couple, let's mention two additional complete refunds Piotr & Stephanie
have secured which have not been previously posted-- federal and
California for 2018:

A Few Comments-- Nuclear And Otherwise-- On
Selected Current Events
Just the low-hanging fruit, you understand-- Fauci's outing
as responsible for C19's development; Biden's fascist mandate; the Texas
abortion law; and a few other topics-- including a look at my recent
antibody test results. There are
only so many hours in the day, after all.
ANTHONY FAUCI has been outed even further as a major perp
in the creation of C19 this week (by docs secured through a FOIA suit by
here). Right out of the gate, useful Republican idiots and Fauci's "plandemic"
co-conspirators are trying to make China the villain responsible for the
origin of C19
and give Fauci and other US malfeasants a pass. Don't let this happen.
Likewise, even where the issue of identifying the culpable
parties is left out of the calculus, those trying to spin the origin
question are trying hard to keep the spectrum of possibilities confined
to natural animal human transmission or a lab leak. Don't let this
spectrum get locked into place. Another possibility remains
that the virus-- whether found as is or enhanced with gain-of-function
manipulation in the lab-- was deliberately introduced into human
Consider: The sort of folks of whom we are speaking have--
in your lifetime-- sent and/or plumped for the sending of thousands of
American men (and even some women) to their deaths, and scores of
thousands into lifetimes of disability. These things have been done in
furtherance of missions to kill at least hundreds of thousands of
non-Americans in Korea, Viet Nam, Iraq, Afghanistan, Somalia, Libya,
Syria, and more.
These same folks financed and facilitated the killing of
more in Yemen, Ukraine, Georgia, Iran, and many other places. And all of
this has been done simply in service to the perpetrator's ideological or
commercial interests. Why on earth would you imagine that such folks
would stick at seeing to the killing of a bunch of strangers in order to
make the world more to their liking (a change they may even tell their
egomaniacal and sociopathic selves would be for everyone's benefit-- at
least, the benefit of those who would be left alive when the dust
"There is no safety for honest men but by believing all
possible evil of evil men."
Let's not forget, as well, that preparations were
apparently made for the exploitation of the "pandemic" well before C19
officially appeared on the scene. There was the notorious "Event 201",
for instance (discussed
here, in the context of a push for "vaccine passports" in Europe
dating back to 2018). There was the networking (or better, web-spinning)
groundwork on behalf of "The
Great Reset". There were the preliminary legal actions put in place
by Democratic operatives prior to C19's official appearance which were
designed to capitalize on an apparently presciently anticipated
unprecedented massive interest in mail-in ballots, as discussed and
documented here and
Now, all of this may have just been a series of remarkable
coincidences, of course. But maybe not, too. Re-read Burke's admonition,
above, and keep your mind, and the spectrum of public discourse, wide
SPEAKING OF THE REVELATIONS of Anthony Fauci's culpability
in the yelling of "pandemic" in a crowded theater, I find it a
suspicious coincidence that within days of The Intercept's
dangerously attention-focusing exposé being published that the
Sundowner-in-Chief (h/t to Matt Taibi for the bon mot)
announced the immensely-distracting proposition of "vaccine" mandates.
Maybe I'm just overly cynical...
Of course, that "vaccine mandate" deserves a few focused words
Let's start with a very brief recap of why there is no
credible rationale for pushing the "vaccine", each point of
which also establishes the illegality of coerced medical treatments in
There are several effective treatments for C19--
specifically, hydroxychloroquine/azithromycin/zinc (see
here and in another topic item below). Both have been
thoroughly-proven in widespread application throughout the world
(including in the USA) over the last 18 months. That
"vaccine"-mongers have conspired to suppress knowledge of these
treatments in the general population and have prevented the FDA from
"approving" them for use in C19 cases doesn't change the facts one
Because there are effective treatments available, in
addition to there being no rationale for endless pushing of the
"vaccines" on the disinterested, there is also no valid compelling
government interest that could make legal the extraordinary and
extremely liberty-violating "remedy" of coerced injections of
biochemical agents into anyone.
Further, it is now well-established that the "vaccines"
don't prevent anyone from becoming infected and don't prevent any
such infected person from transmitting the virus (see
this and this).
Thus, no credible government interest (in "public health" or
otherwise) can be served by forcing them on anyone.
Conversely, if it is argued-- for the sake of
face-saving, and despite the evidence to the contrary-- that the
"vaccines" DO prevent a recipient from becoming infected, then no
compelling interest can be argued for making anyone be injected for
the protection of anyone else. If the "vaccines" offer that kind of
protection, then that other person can become protected by simply
taking the injection him- or herself. The fears of one person, who
can act unilaterally to protect him-or herself, can't justify an
invasion of someone else's rights.
LET'S ALSO TALK about those fears of C19. Unlike smallpox
(the disease involved in the Jacobson v. Massachusetts case to
which many enthused about violating the rights of millions of people in
order to quell their own delusional fears), which has an infection
fatality rate (IFR) of 30%, C19 has an IFR
which averages only
around 0.15% according to the official numbers.
(What's more, even that tiny 0.15% figure is derived
in large part from cases in which none of the readily available,
perfectly safe and thoroughly effective treatments for the disease were
administered to the patients. Further, that 0.15% necessarily fails to account for
some number of unnoticed-- and thus unreported-- asymptomatic infections which render
it even smaller still, albeit to an unknowable degree.)
By itself, that tiny <0.15% threat figure fails to rise
anywhere near a number capable of rationally justifying the invasion of
a single person's body, much less the bodies of millions of Americans. This is especially so
in light of the risks of
adverse effects from the "vaccines" against which the virus threat
must be weighed.
The "vaccine" risks might be small, when measured as a
percentage of all doses administered. But in the consideration of even
just a slight risk of death or permanent disability from the "vaccines"
versus the vanishingly-small risk of death from the virus it is
reasonable to end up favoring the virus, particularly when the
"vaccines" don't actually prevent infection, and don't reliably prevent
death from an infection.
(Indeed, it is unknown what, if anything, is accomplished
by the "vaccines", which are only claimed to lessen the chances of
severe disease. Since the vast majority of infected people don't suffer
severe disease to begin with-- with many never even noticing an
infection as their bodies fight it off and establish robust and durable
natural immunity-- it is hard to know how the purported benefits of the
"vaccines" can have conclusively been determined...)
But even the <0.15% IFR figure overstates the real threat
from the virus, which can actually be further qualified downward for
most people by additional factors.
For instance, other than those of people already over the
average ages of mortality, almost all the fatalities involved in that
<0.15% IFR for C19 occur because of exacerbating conditions which are
themselves already fatal threats to their victims (see
this). In regard to
those exacerbating conditions (comorbidities), ANY respiratory illness,
even so little as the common cold, is as likely to cause death as is an
infection with C19.
Those victims making up the <0.15% IFR for C19 who don't fall
into the categories described above serve even more poorly to justify
"vaccine" mandates. Those in that cohort have inflicted fatal
vulnerability upon themselves, through their own bad behaviors,
such as by becoming obese or profoundly unhealthy in other ways. The
solution to such problems is obviously the responsibility of those who
have engaged in the self-harm, and the peril they have
brought upon themselves is hardly a proper cause for
violating the rights and bodily integrity of others.
OKAY, ALL OF THE FOREGOING POINTS stand on their own as
legal strikes against Biden's fascist "vaccine" mandates. In particular
they each stand strongly against any attempt to rely on the
deeply-flawed Jacobson ruling in its defense.
But there are other strikes against this proposed crime
which, although more challenging to the modern, deeply-conditioned
typical American perspective, offer correspondingly greater benefits for
being aired and argued. And right now may be the singular time in which
that airing and arguing has its best chance of dramatic success due to
the viscerally-glaring impropriety of Biden's plan.
You see, Biden and his co-conspirators rely for the
mandate's legal authority on an "Emergency temporary standards"
provision of the Occupational Safety and Health Act (as amended). It can
be observed, of course, that requiring individuals to accept the
irreversible injection of an unwanted biochemical concoction or face
economic ruin, or requiring business owners to impose such a requirement
or be economically ruined themselves can hardly qualify under a
"temporary remedy" provision. But that's just the least of the problems
with this OSHA reliance.
The fact is, OSHA is grounded in the Constitutional
delegation of authority to "regulate commerce among the several states"
(provided in the Commerce Clause). That delegation has been treated by
the courts as conveying virtually unlimited Congressional authority over
anything NOT actually involved or engaged in commerce among the several
states but which Congress creatively pretends to have an "effect" on
such commerce (the regulation of which is therefore-- goes the
pretense-- an element of regulating such commerce).
But that expansive treatment of the "commerce" regulatory
authority has only taken place since 1937, when FDR threatened to pack
the Supreme Court unless it began seeing things in this bent way. That
is because it is an invalid construction.
Prior to the court-packing threat and SCOTUS's craven
prostration, 150 years of American lawmaking and jurisprudence had seen
not a glimmer of any such manifestly unconstitutional pretense about the
Commerce Clause. And no surprise, considering its obvious inherent
disharmony with myriad actual provisions of the Constitution.
To help cement this point, let me share with you a portion
of a post from a few years ago in which I quote a Supreme Court ruling
from 1936 which sternly decimates that expansive "interpretation" of the
Commerce Clause authority so institutionalized today, and upon which
Biden's "vaccine" mandate relies:
U.S. Supreme Court Carter v. Carter Coal Co.,
298 U.S. 238 (1936)
CERTIORARI TO THE CIRCUIT COURT OF APPEALS FOR
THE SIXTH CIRCUIT
1. A stockholder may maintain a bill to enjoin
the corporation and its directors from submitting to legislative
exactions and regulations which are unconstitutional and would
seriously injure the business of the corporation. P. 298 U. S.
2. Where irreparable injury from
unconstitutional legislation is certain and imminent, suit for
an injunction need not be deferred until injury has been
actually inflicted. P. 298 U. S. 287.
3. [A 176-word description of the "Bituminous
Coal Conservation Act of 1935"-- the legislative scheme being
struck down-- which I am omitting due to its lengthy irrelevance
to my point here.]
(1) That a so-called excise tax, imposed by the
Act, of 15% of the sale price or market value at the mine of all
bituminous coal produced in the country, subject to a draw-back
of 13 1/2% allowed to those producers who submit to the
price-fixing and labor, provisions of the Act, is not a tax, but
a penalty to coerce submission, and cannot be upheld as an
expression of the taxing power.
(2) The provisions of the Act looking to the
control of the wages, hours, and working conditions of the
miners engaged in the production of coal, and seeking to
guarantee their right of collective bargaining in these matters,
are beyond the powers of Congress, because --
(a) The Constitution grants to Congress no
general power to regulate for the promotion of the general
(b) The power expressly granted Congress to
regulate interstate commerce does not include the power to
control the conditions in which coal is produced before it
becomes an article of commerce.
(c) The effect on interstate commerce in the coal
of labor conditions involved in its production, including
disputes and strikes over wages, etc., is an indirect effect.
(3) Since a mine owner, by refusing to accept
the regulatory provisions, would incur a prohibitive tax and be
deprived, by other provisions of the Act, of the right to sell
coal to the United States or to any of its contractors for use
in performing their contracts, the regulations are, in fact,
compulsory. In view of this compulsion, provisions of the Act
seeking to authorize part of the producers and miners to fix
hours for the entire industry, and part of the producers and
miners in the districts to fix minimum wages in their districts,
are legislative delegation in its most obnoxious form, and
clearly violate the Fifth Amendment.
(4) The price-fixing provisions are not
separable from the provisions concerning labor, and therefore
cannot stand independently. They are so related to and dependent
upon the labor provisions, as conditions, considerations or
compensations, as to make it clearly probable that, the latter
being held bad, the former would not have been passed.
(5) The constitutionality of the price-fixing
provisions is not considered.
4. Whether the end sought to be attained by an
Act of Congress is legitimate is wholly a matter of
constitutional power, and not at all of legislative discretion.
Beneficent aims, however great or well directed, can never serve
in lieu of power.
5. To a constitutional end, many ways are open;
but to an end not within the terms of the Constitution, all ways
6. The proposition, often advanced and as often
discredited, that the power of the federal government inherently
extends to all purposes affecting the Nation as a whole with
which the States severally cannot deal, or deal adequately, and
the related notion that Congress, entirely apart from those
powers delegated by the Constitution, may enact laws to promote
the general welfare, have always been definitely rejected by
7. Those who framed and those who adopted the
Constitution meant to carve from the general mass of legislative
powers then possessed by the States only such portions as it was
thought wise to confer upon the federal government, and, in
order that there should be no uncertainty as to what was taken
and what was left, the national powers of legislation were not
aggregated, but enumerated -- with the result that what was not
embraced by the enumeration remained vested in the States
without change or impairment.
8. The States, in respect of all powers reserved
to them, are supreme. And since every addition to the national
legislative power to some extent detracts from or invades the
power of the States, it is of vital moment that, in order to
preserve the fixed balance intended by the Constitution, the
powers of the general government be not so extended as to
embrace any not within the express terms of the several grants
or the implications necessarily to be drawn therefrom.
9. The general government possesses no inherent
power over the internal affairs of the States, and emphatically
not with regard to legislation.
10. The determination of the Framers Convention
and the ratifying conventions to preserve complete and
unimpaired state self-government in all matters not committed to
the national government is one of the plainest facts in the
history of their deliberations. Adherence to that determination
is incumbent equally upon the federal government and the States.
State powers can neither be appropriated, on the one hand, nor
abdicated, on the other.
11. If the federal government once begins taking
over the powers of the States, the States may be so despoiled of
their powers, or -- what may amount to the same thing -- be so
relieved of the responsibilities which the possession of the
powers necessarily enjoins, as to reduce them to little more
than geographical divisions of the national domain.
12. The Constitution is a law -- the supreme law
of the land. Judicial tribunals are required to apply the law to
the facts in every case properly brought before them, and, in so
doing, they are bound to give effect to this supreme law as
against any mere statute conflicting with it.
13. In the discharge of that duty, the opinion
of the lawmakers that a statute passed by them is valid must be
given great weight; but their opinion, or the court's opinion,
that the statute will prove greatly or generally beneficial is
wholly irrelevant to the inquiry.
14. As used in the commerce clause of the
Constitution, the term "commerce" is the equivalent of
intercourse for the purposes of trade, and includes
transportation, purchase, sale and exchange of commodities
between citizens of the different States. The power to regulate
commerce embraces the instruments by which commerce is carried
15. Production and manufacture of commodities
are not commerce, even when done with intent to sell or
transport the commodities out of the State.
16. The possibility or even certainty of the
exportation of a product or an article from a State does not put
it in interstate commerce before it has begun to move from the
State. To hold otherwise would be to nationalize all industries.
17. One who produces or manufactures a
commodity, subsequently sold and shipped by him in interstate
commerce, whether such sale and shipment were originally
intended or not, has engaged in two distinct and separate
activities. So far as he produces or manufactures it, his
business is purely local. So far as he sells or ships it, or
contracts to do so, to customers in another State, he engages in
interstate commerce. In respect of the former, he is subject to
regulation by the State; in respect of the latter, to regulation
only by the federal government. Production is not commerce, but
a step in preparation for commerce.
18. The incidents leading up to and culminating
in the mining of coal -- the employment of men, the fixing of
their wages, hours of labor and working conditions, the
bargaining in respect of these things -- each and all constitute
intercourse for the purposes of production, not of trade.
Commerce in the coal is not brought into being by force of these
purely local activities, but by negotiations, agreements and
circumstances entirely apart from production. Mining brings the
subject matter of commerce into existence; commerce disposes of
19. To say that an activity or condition has a
"direct" effect upon commerce implies that it operates
proximately -- not mediately, remotely, or collaterally -- to
produce the effect, without the presence of any efficient
intervening agency or condition.
20. The distinction between a direct and an
indirect effect upon interstate commerce is independent of the
magnitude of the effect or of its cause.
21. The evils which come to interstate commerce
from struggles between employer and employees over the matter of
wages, working conditions, the right of collective bargaining,
etc., and the resulting strikes, curtailment and irregularity of
production and effect on prices, however extensive such evils
may be, affect interstate commerce in a secondary and indirect
way; they are local evils over which the federal government has
no legislative control.
22. The want of power in the federal government
is the same whether the wages, hours of service, and working
conditions and the bargaining about them, are related to
production before interstate commerce has begun, or to sale and
distribution after it has ended. Schechter Poultry Corp. v.
United States, 295 U. S. 495.
23. A declaration in a statute that invalidity
of any of its provisions shall not affect the others reverses
the presumption of inseparability, but it does not alter the
rule that, if one of two mutually dependent parts be
unconstitutional, the other cannot be upheld.
That sounds like it was written in a different
country, doesn't it?
That's the "originalist" take on the Constitution,
and how it was understood and enforced (with only occasional
stumbles) from 1789-- really, from the adoption of the Articles
of Confederation in 1781-- until the late 1930s. But after
decades of Kool-Aid expressly and insidiously concocted to erode
this original (and frankly, obvious) understanding of the
Constitution, and treat the "United States" referenced in
federal statutes as being the all-inclusive, all-powerful thing
the Supreme Court says above that it is not, we are now a long
way down the path into foreign parts.
So, I imagine my point is now obvious-- Biden HAS no actual
authority under OSHA for his "vaccine" mandate. A vigorous resistance by
all good-hearted Americans to this pernicious assault on our liberties
and the very concept of a rational rule of law should help today's
Supreme Court-- equipped with a lately-rare collection of enough
justices likely to see these legal issues correctly, and to recognize
the significance and fleeting character of the window of opportunity
before them, might result in a proper decision there on the "mandate"
thing, with long coattails of virtue trailing behind it.
HOWEVER... in my very sober and seriously-offered opinion,
no one should wait on, or rely on, any ruling from any court as the
measure of the proper response to this "mandate" outrage. Biden and his
handlers have taken a step too far, and whether a court says so or not,
it cannot be tolerated.
I will leave it to each reader to find his or her way to
the implications of that viewpoint.
I will also share the observations by the now very
serious-minded satirist J.P. Sears in the video below, which go nicely
to the point. And I will BEG you all to share
the post above (the link is https://losthorizons.com/N/162.htm#2)
with EVERYONE you can.
I know lots of folks have been posting lots of things
responding to Biden's attack, many rich with apt dudgeon and strong and
sometimes well-reasoned words. But though it pains me to say it myself,
none will be as useful to the cause as what I have said here.
“The freemen of America did not wait till usurped power had
strengthened itself by exercise, and entangled the question in
precedents. They saw all the consequences in the principle, and they
avoided the consequences by denying the principle.”
Even after the hammer-drop above, there are still a few
things to say on some other related and not-so-related topics, so...
H/T TO PAUL CRAIG ROBERTS for posting this graphic (with
the apt comment, "I suppose Fauci will say Ivermectin only works for
Remember, a big part of the plandemic is the pretense that
there are no treatments for C19, so you will conclude that your only
choices are death or the "vaccine"-- and compliance with lawless
autocratic decrees. The object is the gain of power for some, and for
others of money... and, of course, to get a so-called "vaccine" into
your body for as yet unknown reasons.
Everyone involved in the fear-mongering, the lies about
treatments and the seizures of power-- and all the death and destruction
that resulted-- should face strict accountability.

Maybe seeing that will help encourage people to carefully read and
diligently share the rest of my posts on the subject of C19, starting
with the broad overview
IMAGINING THAT SOME may be interested (since most have
likely never seen one of these, and they may soon become important in
some circumstances), here is an image of my recent C19 antibody test,
taken about four weeks after my infection became apparent,
as discussed here:
BTW, after hanging on 'til the end of August, the sinus
infection that annoyingly accompanied my C19 event faded away. My sense of smell is
slowly returning now, too, thank goodness.
FINALLY, LET'S SHIFT ATTENTION to the Texas anti-abortion
bill that has lately been causing a stir in certain quarters. I will
first say, "Well done, Texas!" For the moment the law appears to be
having its intended effect, and some number of children are alive today
who wouldn't have been without this very creatively-designed solution to
the noxious practice.
That said, it must be recognized that every possible
equally-creative legal assault will be made on the new law. Until all of
those assaults have run their course, the durability of the law will be
very much in question.
With adverse challenge outcomes possible from what are,
after all, likely to be hostile courts, and in order to equip other
state legislatures with another very solid, very difficult to attack
alternative approach to curing the abortion epidemic, I offer the
argument from principle and the practical implementation outline to be

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

better had the state been small, or if Americans kept their money

If you pay attention to the news and train yourself to
apply these perspectives, you will see a dozen things of which you
can make use in awakening other Americans to the virtues of having
the income tax correctly administered. Please, for my sake, for your
own sake, for the sake of your children and their future, make that

Not Letting This "Crisis" Go To Waste...
...an important action item opportunity.
FRIENDS, THE SPORADIC BITS OF EASING of the despotic measures to
which most of the country has been subjected this year should not be
allowed to bleed off the head of steam you probably had been developing.
The offenses happened, and they're far from over. Stay hot.
And while you are all warmed up, and while others, if
they're smart, are just as hot, I'd like you to send an email (and
Facebook post, or whatever) with the following content to everyone you
can (with a request that they pass it along, in turn):
[Name], over the last several months you've
watched as over-fed state power has been used to literally destroy
classical Western civilization and impose a new despotic paradigm. No
dissent or debate permitted-- no permission or agreement sought.
YOU KNOW where this will end up if the arrogant
state power being used to make this happen isn't radically diminished in
size, influence, resources and popular support, and exposed as an
opportunistic exploiter of legal ignorance (an ignorance which it has
been nurturing in the average mind for decades).
Those things having not yet happened, you
should be quaking in your boots-- and you probably are.
Isn't it time-- and past time-- for you to
begin helping to make those desperately-needed defensive changes take
place? There is only one way these things can happen short of a
who-knows-what we'll-end-up-with explosion of violence. I'm going to
show it to you.
When you're done with that reading, you'll know
what to do next.
BTW, REMEMBER, ALSO, THAT EVERY AMERICAN has lately been given a stark lesson in the fact
that government officials at all levels will lie to you and violate the
law without batting an eye. They will do so any time it serves their agenda, and
you don't call them out for it.
If you know anyone who has been persisting in denial on the
truth about the income tax, you know such nonsense is usually be
grounded in some version or another of, "That can't be true..." or "They
would never do something like that...". Now's the time to put a pin in
that delusional bubble.
As the C19 hoax has starkly shown, "that" certainly CAN be true, and they
certainly WOULD do something
Use this evidence in all your
"It is not the function of our Government to keep the
citizen from falling into error; it is the function of the citizen to
keep the Government from falling into error."
-United States Supreme Court Justice Robert H. Jackson
(Deceitful efforts to discourage Americans from
learning the truth about the "income tax")
FOR ALL THE YEARS SINCE 2003 when
CtC was first published, the government has engaged in a
concerted effort to frighten people away from its truths. This
effort involves official government websites and press releases
touting an occasional court ruling that appears to be at odds
CtC-revelation (but without details sufficient to expose the
real substance of the ruling)--
and sometimes even more mendacious behavior.
Are the presentations and
resources offered on this site and in my other work of any value to you?
Tim Kendrick has posted
on YouTube regarding donations. I didn't know what to do about
it to begin with; I don't do what I do intending for anyone to
feel obligated in any way.
But of course, no one IS obligated. I will continue
to make my work freely-available here, and in my books for only
the cost of a cheap paperback.
Thus, even though I post it here below, Tim's very
thoughtful personal resolution and encouragement to others is
just an invitation for consideration by those who may not be
conscious of the fact that I can't do what I do without support.
No one is to feel any pressure from it; if it moves anyone to
act let it be solely because it seems right.
All-in-all, just be the sort of person for others
that you would go to yourself for trustworthy leadership.
Leadership is a challenge. But it's not
complicated, and you can do it.
Are You Having Trouble Spreading The
SKEPTICISM (SOMETIMES INVOKED BY FEAR) IS TO BE
EXPECTED when you're trying to explain to someone that
everything they've been encouraged their whole lives to
believe about something as entrenched and significant as the
income tax is basically nonsense. So here's a way to help
cut through the resistance:
Ask your listener how he or she would react if
you were to show an announcement from the Commissioner of
Internal Revenue admitting that the tax doesn't apply to the
earnings of most Americans and is misapplied most of the
time because people don't understand how it works? Or how
about if you showed a ruling from the Supreme Court saying
Now you just have to explain that
you're going to show exactly those things-- but because
the state really doesn't want people to know this, these
things haven't been said quite as forthrightly as we would
all wish. It's going to take a bit more work to take these
admissions in than is sufficient for just reading a press
release. But it'll be worth the effort...

You must travel down one of two – A or B – railroad
tracks, but you can choose between A and B. If you choose to travel down track A
you must remain on that track until its end. You’ll have, if you choose track A,
to the best of your knowledge as you start your journey a 60 percent chance of
reaching a destination that’s spectacularly wonderful and a 40 percent chance of
reaching a destination that’s hellishly awful. If you instead choose to travel
down track B and to remain on track B for its entire length, you’ll have, to the
best of your knowledge as you start your journey, a 40 percent chance of
reaching a destination that’s spectacularly wonderful and a 60 percent chance of
reaching a destination that’s hellishly awful. But unlike with track A, if you
choose track B you’ll have an opportunity during your journey to switch to track
C. If you start on track B and then switch to track C, your journey down track C
will deposit you, with 100 percent certainty, in a place that’s merely pretty
good – neither an earthly paradise nor an earthly hell; just an earthly place
that’s merely pretty good.
Before you choose between traveling down tracks
A or B, you’re told that, regardless of which set of tracks you choose,
from the moment you start your journey you’ll gather ever more
information about which specific destination you are headed toward.
Down which of these two sets of tracks will you
choose to begin your journey?
If you’re someone who relishes risk-taking, you
might choose track A with its higher chance of depositing you in a
veritable earthly paradise. But if you’re even remotely averse to risk,
you’ll almost certainly choose to start your journey on track B. The
opportunity afforded by track B (unlike track A) to switch mid-journey
to another track – to track C – allows you to act on valuable
information that you’ll learn as you journey forth.
I’m quite confident (although I can’t prove)
that most human beings would choose to begin their journey on track B
rather than on track A. It’s desirable to retain the ability to adjust
course as we learn more about just where we are heading on our current
course. Indeed, I think it’s not too much to describe people who would
choose to start their journey on track A rather than on track B as
THIS ARTICLE WAS PUBLISHED two weeks ago. When writing it Don
Boudreaux will not have known about last week's confirmatory revelations of US
officials' involvement in developing the C19 virus. Nor will he have known of
the "vaccine" mandate of whoever is pulling Joe Biden's strings. But by virtue
of the latter, in particular (and of the former insofar as it has been being
covered up), Boudreaux's premise has been impressively borne out in just the
events of one short week.
Of course, the last 16 months have offered endless other
examples of Boudreaux's insight, as well. Indeed, I proposed a similar
doubling-down thesis all
the way back in April of 2020 (and then
again in May) as the
official data-fudging began to get ever-more creative in an effort to
keep the panic alive in the face of growing popular skepticism and
The one thing Boudreaux's otherwise typically-excellent
article lacks is the prescription for the cure--
as to how to generate a break in the tracks down which our train is
careening at every greater speed.
Happily, there is such a cure. It's a challenge in several
ways, due mostly to the current control of information exchange by
supporters of the totalitarian train in Big Tech and the MSM, and by the
conditioned resistance to certain long-hidden facts and understanding on
the part of even many in alt-media. But those genuinely interested in
pulling on that emergency brake line should keep reading.
Everyone else can go back to sleep now. As Samuel Adams
once said, "May your chains rest lightly upon you, and may posterity
forget that ye were our countrymen."
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 avail us now. Nothing else will do.
It is the giant centralized federal
power structure-- and to a lesser (but just as dedicated and pernicious)
degree those of individual state governments-- that have 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.)
Remediation efforts undertaken in the political arena and
in the courts are virtuous, and merit our enthusiastic support and
participation. But all such efforts will look to
the existing political and legal structure for their implementation. In
the current climate, in which the established structures are so heavily
compromised and corrupted, such reliance is more a naive hope than a
Our efforts must focus on striking at the taproot of the
HAPPILY, AMERICA'S 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.

Lincoln, in announcing his willingness to burn the Southern states to the ground in order to

service to the Founders design of leaving control over the fuel
