As lunatics in Washington and many statehouses attack the civilization that made
us prosperous and free,
March 28- In 193, Roman Emperor Publius
Helvius Pertinax is assassinated by his Praetorian Guards, who then auction the
throne to the highest bidder (Senator Didius Julianus). In 1834, the United
States Senate censures President Andrew Jackson for de-funding the Second Bank
of the United States (a central bank equipped to emit notes and extend credit,
somewhat anticipating the current Federal Reserve, and responsible, during its
20-year existence, for a massive real-estate price bubble and collapse). After
the demise of the bank, the United States experienced virtually zero inflation
until the Fed was instituted (with the exception of the period during the War
Between The States, when the Lincoln administration issued its fiat
"greenbacks"). In 1939, fascist Francisco Franco takes Madrid in the Spanish
Civil War. In 1979, the worst nuclear power plant accident in American history
occurs at the Three Mile Island reactor in Pennsylvania. No one is hurt and no

It's Time To Celebrate More
...over the pernicious influence and effect of
legal and historical
fictions by which the long-running and now dire statist assault
on liberty and the rule of law has been facilitated. Plus, a few
important words on "gender fluidity" and the Jackson SCOTUS
WE'RE IN A VERY DANGEROUS TIME right now. Those in
possession of political power are allied with a
newly-arisen group of private interests able to
control the perceptions and discourse of a huge
swath of the national population. This has never
before been true in the way it is now.
In the past, media organs were vastly more diverse.
Nearly everybody read a newspaper and many, if not
newspapers were independent. Even in the mainstream
media, journalists competed with each other in
digging up challenges to the dominant perspective or
narrative, especially if that narrative was that of
any powerful institution or commercial interest, and
most especially if that institution was the state or
the interest had a political dimension.
businesses were less likely to be consolidated, and the atmosphere generated by their
influence was less reflexively conformist and less
able to be threatened and controlled by
narrow-interest grievance industries. No one relied
for their "news" and "facts" on addictive so-called
social media in which public discourse and the
popular picture of reality are "curated" and controlled
with outright censorship on a massive scale.
A MAJOR COMPONENT in the destruction of America's
liberal order has been the embedding of false
the nature of the income tax into public
perception. These false notions about the tax
engender and support false notions about the
Constitutional relationship of citizen and state--
which, conversely, are impossible to
sustain when the tax is understood.
Not only is the
fiction about the income tax a generator and
sustainer of faulty and hugely harmful perceptions
leading to a servile and helpless population, but
its exploitation produces a river of wealth flowing
from the citizenry into the hands of office-holders
who use it to steadily eat away at everything that
has made this country great.
Because of the overwhelming significance of the
issue, those going to the trouble to learn the truth
about the tax, and refusing to play along with the
lies, are today's true American heroes. Much else
competes for our attention these days, but I want to
devote some time in this newsletter to celebrating
recent victories by these upstanding and
outstanding men and women.
Eddie & Kathryne Ann Yarbrough
THREE WEEKS AGO, Eddie and Kathryne Ann secured a
complete refund, plus (apparently) interest, of what had been
improperly withheld from them and given over to
Uncle Sam against the possibility of their earnings
during 2019 being subject to the income tax-- Social security tax, Medicare tax, and all. Here is
the deposit record of the refund:
IN THE VIDEO BELOW Dave shares not only
his practical victories, but also the most important
kind of victory, and the one that necessarily
precedes all others-- the resolution to learn the
truth and then rise to act upon it:
Well done, Dave!
KEITH HAS JUST SECURED a complete refund from
Louisiana of everything withheld from him and given
to the state during 2020:
MARY AND ABEL HAVE joined the ranks of the warriors
actually doing something to shrink the Leviathan
state back down to its Constitutional,
liberty-harmonious dimensions. Let Mary tell you all
Well done, Mary and Abel!
ROSS HAS SECURED a complete refund from
Massachusetts of everything previously paid in
regard to 2020 by the filing of an educated amending
return. Here is the refund:
RODNEY PEREZ brings a proper gravity to the subject
of the truth and the tax. Listen carefully to his
Well done, Rodney!
MICHAEL HAS SECURED an IRS admission that he owed no
tax on his 2018 earnings, and an acknowledgement
that he is owed a refund of the better part of what
was withheld from him:
Here is the filing by which this admission was
secured-- but as is shown in that filing (and on the
refund notice above), the actual amount withheld, to
every penny of which Michael is entitled, is
$74,116.00, not the $59,588.00 admitted by the IRS.
Michael is being targeted with a scam occasionally
deployed in the hope that the intended victim will
be unfamiliar with the law and imagine that for some
reason the tax agency gets to keep FICA withholdings
even while admitting that nothing was done by which
such liabilities can have arisen (as is more fully
Michael will still have to go to some effort to be
made completely whole in this matter. But with the
admission of no taxable activity in hand, he's
already off to a great start.
Well done, Michael!
JEFF DELIVERS AN UPBEAT intro to what he has learned
from his study of CtC, and encouragement to every
American man and woman to learn the same and get in
Well done, Jeff!
David & Valerie Denning
Valerie Denning have racked up their sixth
victory in the last several years-- this one from
the feds for 2020. Like Michael Sullivan's, above,
this victory for David & Valerie includes an effort
by the feds to gull the couple into settling for
Here is the refund notice:
As seen in
the filing related to this victory-in-progress,
David and Valerie actually have $14,897.00 coming back
to them, but the IRS is pretending that nothing was
withheld from them in FICA taxes (or that somehow a
liability for those taxes arose even while agreeing
that no overall income tax liability arose). Like
Michael Sullivan, David and Valerie will have to
stay on the field with this one a bit longer, but
also like Michael, they already have the key
admission in their hands.
Well done, David and Valerie!
LONG-TIME OBSERVER of the "tax honesty" community
Roe Price found his way to the truth and wants to
tell everyone that story:
Well done, Roe!
Mike & Angi Gangestad
MIKE AND ANGI'S VICTORY being shared today varies
from the others above in that it was secured in
2021, rather than 2022. But I include it
nonetheless, and am very happy to do so, because
since their first victory in 2017, these two good
folks have been in the trenches fighting the good
fight against a really balky IRS.
The long wait has likely been because
while also doing non-privileged work,
Mike is a
licensed federal firearms dealer, and that fact has
somehow complicated the agency reaction to (or
ability to understand) the couple's educated filings
in the past. As will be seen in the refund notices
below, that complication still hinders complete and
proper satisfaction of Mike and Angi's claim. The
acknowledged overpayment and refund for 2020--
made in response to this filing-- has been
diverted toward liability allegations from previous
years in which the IRS just couldn't or wouldn't
But the acknowledgement of the truth finally made
now speaks volumes, and shows that the ice has
cracked wide open in Mike and Angi's story. It
couldn't have happened to more deserving people.
Well done, Mike and Angi!
BOB WEBB shares victories and critically-important
vigor in this short and very-much-to-the-point
video. Catch his excellent energy and share it
around in turn:
Well done, Bob!
I AM ALSO HAPPY TO SHARE TODAY the latest
contribution to the cause by the always outstanding Jeremy Lee.
Jeremy has followed in the footsteps of the serious
activists in Georgia, Colorado and Ohio (reported
here), hiring billboard space in multiple
locations in Kentucky to get the word out during
this "tax season", as shown in this example in
Jeremy will be switching over to a new image
Nice work, and this is a great way to get a LOT
accomplished for mere pennies-- many thousands of
views each week for as little as $30, all locations
combined, and with no commitment.
WELL DONE, JEREMY!
SO, HATS VERY MUCH OFF to Eddie &
Kathryne Ann, Dave, Keith, Mary & Abel, Ross,
Rodney, Michael, Roe, David & Valerie, Jeff, Mike &
Angi, Bob, and Jeremy! The great victories
join those of the tens of thousands of other
awakened and activated Americans represented
here, and constitute more critical steps toward
the restoration of
the Founders republic and the true rule of law.

STAYING IN THAT SAME "gender fluidity" vein,
and in a more serious tone, I want to share some
comments about a virtuous effort by Tennessee
senator Marsha Blackburn to defend reality against
the leftist effort to corrupt it with gender-related
During the confirmation hearings for Joe
Biden's Supreme Court nominee, Ketanji Brown
Jackson, Blackburn asked Jackson to define "woman".
Jackson said she could not do so, and then repeated
herself, adding that she is not a biologist.
Jackson's claimed inability was not, of
course, because she doesn't know the definition (an
adult human female). Rather, she recognized the
question as a trap, meant to oblige her to
contradict the "gender fluidity" lunacy embraced by
those to whom she is beholden. Had she answered the
question, every Democrat whose votes she needs would
have felt him- or her-self on dangerous ground with
constituents. Hence, the ludicrous, deceitful dodge.
AS I SAID, BLACKBURN'S QUESTION was
virtuous. But she could and should have
followed up for the kill, despite Jackson's
evasion. Had Blackburn been better prepared, her
next questions would have been,
"Judge Jackson, what do you think
Congress has meant by the word woman when it has
used it in the many places "woman" or "women" appear
"Judge Jackson, if you can't (or
won't) define "woman", doesn't this mean that when
you are dealing judicially with a statute in which
the word "woman" or "women" is employed by Congress
you simply assign it, whether consciously or
unconsciously, whatever meaning suits you--
which is to say, whatever meaning supports your
consciously or unconsciously
(I think the answer to the second of
these follow-up questions is plain, and Jackson's
confirmation proceedings should switch to an
OF COURSE BLACKBURN DIDN'T follow up
with these questions, and from what I saw, neither
did any one else. Ted Cruz did take a brief shot at
picking the ball back up after Blackburn let it
drop, but apparently without a clear notion of the
real heart of the issue, which is a very simple and
straightforward matter of respecting original intent
versus legislating from the bench.

senators can quickly point them to these
observations, or forward this post to others who can

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 under the mantle of
COVID-19 mitigation 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], since March of 2020 you've
watched as over-fed state power has been used to literally destroy
classical Western civilization and impose a new despotic paradigm. No
dissent or debate permitted-- no permission or agreement sought.
YOU KNOW where this will end up if the arrogant
state power being used to make this happen isn't radically diminished in
size, influence, resources and popular support, and exposed as an
opportunistic exploiter of legal ignorance (an ignorance which it has
been nurturing in the average mind for decades).
Those things having not yet happened, you
should be quaking in your boots-- and you probably are.
Isn't it time-- and past time-- for you to
begin helping to make those desperately-needed defensive changes take
place? There is only one way these things can happen short of a
who-knows-what we'll-end-up-with explosion of violence. I'm going to
show it to you.
When you're done with that reading, you'll know
what to do next.
BTW, REMEMBER, ALSO, THAT EVERY AMERICAN has lately been given a stark lesson in the fact
that government officials at all levels will lie to you and violate the
law without batting an eye. They will do so any time it serves their agenda, and
you don't call them out for it.
If you know anyone who has been persisting in denial on the
truth about the income tax, you know such nonsense is usually be
grounded in some version or another of, "That can't be true..." or "They
would never do something like that...". Now's the time to put a pin in
that delusional bubble.
As the C19 hoax has starkly shown, "that" certainly CAN be true, and they
certainly WOULD do something

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

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

But of course, no one IS obligated. I will continue

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.

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...

The US Press Again Becomes A Conduit For Pro-War
by Ted Galen Carpenter
American journalists have a long, ignoble history of
being willing conduits for pro-war propaganda. Usually, that behavior is in
service to a military crusade that Washington has launched or wants to initiate.
At times, though, such a betrayal of journalistic integrity occurs on behalf of
a foreign country that both U.S. political leaders and news media elites have
adopted as a favorite cause. We are currently witnessing the latter phenomenon
with respect to news coverage of the Russia-Ukraine war.
The dominant media narrative is that the US
government (and all Americans) must "stand with Ukraine" in the latter's
resistance to Russian aggression. The identification with Ukraine's
cause is now nearly total, and it is infused with arrogant
righteousness. Noticeably missing is any sense, once so powerful in US
foreign policy and general discourse, that America's interests often are-- and should be-- distinct from the interests and objectives of any
The emotionalism and shallowness is most
evident with the television coverage of the conflict. American viewers
are inundated with images of exploding shells from the invading Russian
forces, sights of desperate, tearful refugees (mostly women and
children) fleeing the invaders, and shots of other determined Ukrainian
civilians arming themselves to defend their country. Television is a
visual medium that always tries to evoke emotions among viewers, but
that element has become truly over-the-top regarding treatment of the
Ukraine war. Providing a deluge of images showing traumatized civilian
refugees adds little to anyone's understanding of the roots of the
conflict, its underlying issues, or its likely outcome.
Indeed, prominent media outlets have been
guilty of circulating transparently crude Ukrainian propaganda. Some of
the material they've telecast turned out to be fake. A widely circulated
image of a Ukrainian girl verbally confronting Russian troops actually
was that of a
Palestinian girl confronting Israeli troops. 2015's Miss Ukraine
was not taking up arms against the Russian invaders, despite a
well-covered photo op. A closer examination of the image showed that she
was brandishing an Airsoft gun. Some images of aerial combat footage of
Ukrainian pilots battling Russian aggressors
were from video games.
There also has been an array of more subtle, but decidedly deceptive,
accounts that US press outlets distributed. The supposed martyrs of
Snake Island, who allegedly were blown to smithereens after defying and
cursing a Russian warship, turned out to be
very much alive.
The American news media dutifully reported a Ukrainian military account
in early March that it had severely damaged, if not sunk, the Russian
patrol ship Vasiliy Bykov in the Black Sea. The episode was supposedly a
major victory, because the vessel was one of Russia's newest warships.
The credibility of Kyiv's claim took a major hit on March 16, though,
when the Vasily Bykov sailed,
apparently unharmed, into the port of Sevastopol in Crimea.
In light of such problems with accounts
regarding the war, American journalists should at least be cautious
about reflexively repeating Ukrainian government allegations. For
example, Kyiv has repeatedly asserted that Russian forces deliberately
target residential areas in their shelling campaigns, and the US media
echo those claims. Perhaps the allegations are true, but the
generally accepted figures with respect to Ukrainian civilian fatalities
(726, as of March 17) do not seem consistent with wholly
indiscriminate assaults. Journalists should at least view Kyiv's
accusations with some skepticism, yet there is scant evidence of
"There is no safety for honest men but by believing all
possible evil of evil men."
IT IS ASTONISHING how seamless was the pivot of the
monolithic MSM/officialdom narrative chorus from 24/7 COVID propaganda
to 24/7 Ukraine: pure as the driven snow victim/Russia: blackhearted,
wholly-unprovoked Hitlerian aggressor. Lockstep in talking points of
total bs on the former subject has become lockstep in talking points of
total bs on the latter, with no ramp-up time required.
Nothing could more clearly illustrate
and emphasize the fact that these outlets, both in
the government and in the media, get scripts and
marching orders from the same source, and all simply
do what they're told. If dissenting or skeptical or
even merely cautious voices are to be found within
any of them, no such voice is permitted air-time.
Nothing could more clearly
illustrate and emphasize the fact that what these
outlets are saying is false. The truth is never a
plain matter of black and white; and no two
observers of events see them exactly the same. When
something is presented in Manichean terms, it is
falsely presented; and when multiple alleged
observers of events appear to see them through the
same eyes, they are parroting someone else's message
and simply pretending it is their own.
In the case of the events in Ukraine,
the false messages seem plainly designed to distract
America while resistance to distortions of the rule
of law in the name of COVID mitigation loses steam
and we all acclimate to the new (drastically-worse)
normal, and to ramp us up to tolerance for another
large-scale uptick in power and wealth for the deep
state, spin-control on the matter of US bio-weapon
research and development in Ukraine, and the push
into the memory-hole of corruption played out in
Ukraine by Joe Biden and members of his family, and
others in power and influence during the Obama
A side interest is the perpetuation of
deeply-mistaken notions about Russia and Vladimir
Putin manufactured by the Hillary Clinton campaign
and others for the furtherance of various political
here for an accurate picture of what is really
going on in Ukraine, and why.
AMERICANS SHOULDN'T HAVE TO worry about
separating truth from lies out of the mouths of
government officials and their coopted media flacks
and hacks. Certainly we shouldn't have to push our
way through a din of propaganda and deal with its
pernicious influence on those vulnerable to its
blandishments and incitements, and the political
And we don't have to do so.
There will, of course, always be
hysteria-prone people. And the well-practiced operatives of the state will
always think up new hob-goblins by which hysteria
can be invoked, exploited and manipulated. But we

relative harmlessness, as long as we act NOW,
while liberty and

You see, the Founders and Framers thought
this one through...
Those wise and well-educated men-- knowing,
as they did, that all governments inevitably lurch
toward the accretion of power unto themselves and
the corruption which accompanies all accretions of
state power-- pre-emptively put into place a solution.
That solution is baked into the Constitutional cake
and ready to the hand of individual Americans,
entirely bypassing all supervision or approval of
The only requirements to implement that solution are eyes

some of the artificial "New Deal" props like the CCC program were cut back), but
