Illuminating anniversaries of this week:

April 11- In 1775, the last execution for witchcraft in Germany is carried out.  In 1876, the American Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks is established.  In 1951, Harry Truman relieves Douglas MacArthur of command in Korea for insubordination.  In 1970, Apollo 13 is launched.  In 2002, an attempted coup fails to oust Hugo Chavez of Venezuela. In 2021, fugitive Daunte Wright is shot while resisting arrest on an outstanding warrant after a traffic stop by a police officer who claimed to have mistakenly used her firearm instead of her Taser. Wright's history of violent crime (and the fact that he was resisting arrest) are suppressed by the media, and the shooting is used as a pretext for widespread rioting over supposed systemic police department racism.

Narrative Management

The American people are awash in spin-- so thoroughly and so relentlessly that the response to the latest output of the propaganda machine is often reflexive, Pavlovian buy-in-- a profoundly unhealthy thing. Let's look closely and correctively at two of the current storylines, concerning events in Ukraine and in the 2020 election. As a bonus, we'll wrap up with a few words correcting misperceptions of FRPs, the favorite IRS gimmick in its efforts to discourage inconvenient refund claims.

The Russian Action In Ukraine Is An Intervention, And Brings To Mind The Alamo

TWO THINGS HAVE BEEN CONSISTENTLY OMITTED from reporting in the West on the Russian Special Military Operation (SMO) which began in February, closely preceded by Russia's formal recognition of the Republics of Donetsk and Luhansk. Both are highly dangerous to the Manichean propaganda flood with which the West has been steadily inundated for the last six weeks.

The first omitted fact is that both of these former provinces of Ukraine had seceded in the face of a relentless, murderous offensive against their populations by the usurping "government" in Kiev after the US-engineered coup in 2014 which overthrew the legitimately-elected government of Viktor Yanukovych-- an aggression which had continued for eight long years. See the reporting on all this by an American journalist who has been living in the Donbass for the last eight years:

Also see this related, important, and well-sourced reporting on the Crimea "annexation", which the usurper government in Kiev vowed to undo-- by any means necessary and in defiance of the Crimean people's wishes-- in a 'National Security and Defense Council' decree issued March 24, 2021.

The second thing omitted from the hypnotic Ukraine Good, Russia Bad narrative is that in the weeks preceding the Russian SMO, the Nazi thugs in Kiev (most intensely represented in their malicious character by the so-called "Azov Battalion", headquartered in Mariupol) had amassed 150,000 troops on the eastern border of Ukraine facing the breakaway region, in preparation for a genocidal "ethnic cleansing" attack-- the imminence of which prompted the Russian actions. In fact, on February 18, six days prior to the commencement of the Russian SMO, 1,400 artillery strikes from the western Ukraine Nazis rocked Donetsk and Luhansk.

Instructively, the behavior of the coup-installed western Ukraine Nazis is much like that of 1836 Mexico in response to the independence movement of Texas. Likewise (and also instructively), Russia's response to the independence aspirations of the newly-minted Donetsk and Luhansk Republics is much as America's was to the actions of the Texans (and to the oppressions of the Mexican government in trying to crush the Texans' assertion of independence).

AS THIS VERY SIGNIFICANT MOMENT in the history of liberty continues to unfold, strive to keep in your own mind and that of others the foregoing very important backstory. At the same time recognize that, just as we all have had that very important backstory kept from us by Western governments and their media presstitutes, so, too, we are being fed falsehoods about "Russian atrocities" in Ukraine and everything else going on there, by the most accomplished dog-waggers in the history of the world.

Recognize that the reason Russian media is now being rigidly censored here in America is so that you won't hear or see anything about the subject that doesn't suit the narrative of those who plotted and conducted the coup in 2014 (and have long been using Ukraine as an opportunity for graft, evasion of the Biological Weapons Convention, and as a goad to prompt Russia into a widely-destabilizing military action in the name of which further restrictions on the liberties and prosperity of Western populations can be imposed and those fastened in place under the pretext of the "pandemic" can solidify while pushed off the front burner of public consciousness. (Kit Knightly shares a few cogent thoughts on this last point here.)

Keep all of this firmly in mind. And for goodness sake, awaken to the seriousness of this situation!

Everyone of you should be furiously spreading the word about CtC so there's a chance that the lunatic Leviathan state at whose feet all this can be laid might get defunded and shrunk down to relative harmlessness before it's too late.

There's a very good reason the Founders structured the Constitution so that one thing shielded from the impulses of an ignorant majority is the extent to which you can be legally compelled to finance those impulses. Don't spurn their wisdom.

Your only defense against "official" and collective insanity and irresponsibility and nihilism is keeping the state too poor for the commission of great harms, as discussed here. Use that defense!!

SHARE THIS FILE LIKE CRAZY!!

IN LIGHT OF THE SERIOUSNESS of the Ukraine agitprop to which we are being subjected (and the "pandemic" agitprop it has replaced, for the moment), I'm a bit reluctant to share even pretty good material on both that is "tainted" with humor. That characteristic risks taking the edge off what should and must be a very narrow-eyed resolve to denounce the propaganda and remove everyone responsible from all positions of trust and honor.

But because I really want everyone to enjoy this clever and well-produced satire, and because satire and derision are actually powerful weapons against official improprieties, I'm going to share it anyway. I'll rely on that preamble to ensure that everyone resumes a proper demeanor as soon as their smiles have begun to fade...

The Election-Rigging Whitmer Kidnapping Fable Hits A Brick Wall

WE'VE JUST BEEN TREATED TO A PLEASING OUTCOME in the federal trial of a handful of folks incited into being patsies of a clever plot to attack Donald Trump in the autumn of 2020 prior to the election. In the plot, a dozen men from Michigan and a few other states let themselves be enveloped by a roughly equal number of FBI agents (both the card-carrying kind and the less formal variety) who promoted the idea of kidnapping and trying Michigan governor Gretchen Whitmer over her extreme and manifestly illegal dictatorial edicts under the mantle of the C19 pandemic.

It was clear from the get-go that the alleged kidnapping plot was an election-rigging scheme by which the supposed radical opposition to Whitmer was presented as an example of Trump's mindset and that of his supporters-- and just one of a number of seriously bent and corrupt schemes in which Whitmer was apparently prepared to participate. This past Friday a jury in western Michigan hearing a federal case against four of the defendants agreed.

After 15 days of trial which included testimony from two defendants who had secured plea deals based on promises to testify against the others, and five days of deliberations, the jury acquitted two of the defendants and deadlocked on the other two. (A trial on state charges against three of the other alleged co-conspirators is set for September in Jackson County, Michigan, but in light of this outcome in the federal trial, we'll see if that actually happens when the time comes...)

IN ADDITION TO HIGHLIGHTING the true character of the "kidnapping plot", this trial conclusion provides a nice excuse for a bit of general complaint about the unrelenting bs about fraud in the 2020 election endlessly issuing forth from the guilty parties in media and the Democratic party. As the Whitmer kidnapping pretense illustrates, rigging of that election was conducted as a systematic black-op by large, deeply-entrenched public and private institutions.

Another telling illustration of the fraud was, of course, the treatment of the Hunter Biden laptop story, which was suppressed and falsely smeared as "Russian disinformation" to help ensure Donald Trump's defeat. That story-- if honestly-reported, as it still has never been, even by media outlets reluctantly and selectively admitting the authenticity of the laptops damning contents-- includes much evidence of Joe Biden's corruption, in which Hunter Biden was simply participating as a monetizing agent, it would appear.

In addition to the suppression of damning evidence of Biden corruption, the false narrative management of the Hunter Biden laptop story by Big Tech, the MSM and the Deep State simultaneously served to tar Donald Trump with the charge of introducing a false attack on Biden. Worse, continued the smear, he had done so in collusion, or as the beneficiary of, the evil Russkies which had (so the larger narrative goes) been interfering with our elections and governance for years.

Notably, the suppression of the laptop story was conducted by, among others, Mark Zuckerberg, now famous for having spent hundreds of millions taking control of the election process in key states in order to skew the results in favor of Joe Biden.

THE POINT HERE, OF COURSE, is that in fact, the 2020 election WAS the focus of massive fraud. There was undoubtedly a great deal of direct ballot fraud in one form or another, such as the variety explained (and illustrated) here.

There were also systematic assaults on the integrity of the process of the kind shown here, in which ballots for Joe Biden were counted, and recounted and recounted, etc., with every repeat fraudulently adding to Biden's totals. Much additional evidence of illegal and/or improper activity on Joe Biden's behalf has been steadily unearthed over the time since the election.

The clumsiness with which some of that evidence was presented in the media and in courtrooms in the hurly-burly of the immediate aftermath of the events and while the clock was ticking toward deadlines for certification provided opportunities for the same partisan interests in Big Tech, the MSM and the Deep State responsible for the frauds to "pooh-pooh" and purport to "debunk" the impertinent allegations against "the most secure election in history". But that failure to persuasively present the evidence against the headwind generated by these well-positioned oppositional forces in no way diminishes the veracity and significance of that evidence.

And, of course, it must be recognized that "fact checks" of such evidence conducted by the very parties against whom the evidence stands are more than unreliable-- they can be assumed to be outright frauds themselves.

All told, the invalidity of Joe Biden's election is plain and clear. Likewise, the behavior or attitudes of those who have taken issue with the election outcome-- as declared by the same Big Tech, MSM and Deep State actors shown to have engaged in the election-rigging-- is hardly a proper object of scorn or acrimony. Rather, it is a bright light of faithfulness to the rule of law and the principles upon which America is founded, and under the careful preservation of which she will exclusively survive and prosper as she is meant to do.

And Now For Something Completely Different...

FINALLY, ON AN EXCLUSIVELY CtC-RELATED NOTE, in light of the usual excess vigor of the IRS during "tax-time" I have to reiterate something I've pointed out a number of times before, but which a lot of folks seem to have trouble integrating this into their view of the forest: the "frivolous" of the Frivolous Return Penalty (FRP) codified at 26 U.S.C. 6702 is a term of art. It has nothing to do with an assertion of a return's "frivolousness" in any other context, whether in tax court or elsewhere.

Further, a 6702-related assertion of "frivolous" against an actual CtC-educated return has nothing to do with the validity or processing of the return's self-assessment or refund claim. The fact that an opportunistic assertion of a "frivolous return penalty" has been made is irrelevant to any assertion of "deficiency" or any balkiness or delay in honoring a claim made by way of such return.

I guess it's just a tricky concept. It's also a prime example of the kind of semantic-gaming by which the "ignorance tax" is successfully accomplished despite having zero basis in the law, and obviously so, when studied to any meaningful degree. So, I certainly don't fault anyone for being misled.

ALL THE FOREGOING SAID, the solution to (and prophylactic against) the danger of misunderstanding FRPs is owning all the information to be found at this link (and the pages linked therefrom). Everyone should acquire that ownership, in the understanding that abuse of the FRP is the #1 ploy to which the IRS resorts in its effort to discourage the filing of (to the agency, highly-mission-inconvenient) educated tax returns-- and also the #1 most easily-shown-and-understood evidence of the agency's lack of any legitimate basis for opposition to such filings.

This community should be using this evidence widely in the larger community.

I am mystified that there aren't a thousand videos on YouTube and Rumble and Brighteon and GAB exposing and explaining what is shown here and elsewhere among the resources at the link above (and also, for that matter, what is shown here, and here, and here, to pick a few more veins rich in "wake-up" potential). I have provided all the parts for constructing such outreach and educational tools. Why is no one using them?

Do you not all understand that getting stuff like that out there is to YOUR benefit?!

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.

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

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

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

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

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

Use this evidence in all your outreach efforts.

Regarding Trolleries

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

 

 

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

Are 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.

Are You Having Trouble Spreading The Word?

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

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

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

The Magic Kingdom Is Coming For Your Kids

Disney's goal, backed by hundreds of billions of dollars and foisted on a captive market, is the goal of all social progressivism: the erasure of sacred boundaries.

by Declan Leary

This past Monday, March 28, Governor Ron DeSantis of Florida signed into law H.B. 1557, Parental Rights in Education. The measure, which prohibits employees of the state’s public schools from teaching children in third grade and below about sexuality and gender ideology in the classroom, has sparked controversy. Critics of the bill, while insisting that no instruction about such matters is given to begin with and therefore need not be outlawed, frantically predicted that the prohibition will have disastrous consequences.

In the not-at-all-hysterical framing of Chasten Buttigieg, “This will kill kids.” Imagine the tidal wave of suicides that will certainly ensue now that some left-wing midwit with a B.A. in psychology cannot tell other people’s six-year-olds about habitual male-on-male sodomy. What if some poor kid’s second-grade teacher never gets to tell him that boys can actually be girls if they feel like girls—that he, despite all contrary indications, might even be a girl himself? Who could possibly survive such deprivation? Who, if not taxpayer-funded educators, will teach the youth of America the ins and outs of queerness?

Disney, thank heavens, has stepped into the breach. The children’s entertainment behemoth—after a round condemnation from some more radical employees for failure to oppose the Florida bill enthusiastically enough—has been running round-the-clock damage control. Statements have been issued condemning the bill, criticizing the governor, and reaffirming the $200-billion company’s absolute commitment to its LGBTQIA employees. Though late to the game, Disney has become by far the loudest institutional voice against Florida’s anti-grooming bill, and earned the scorn of conservatives for it.

So, at the Bulwark, Charlie Sykes frets “that the entrepreneurs of culture war have grown tired of ginning up indignation about ‘Drag Queen Story Hour,’ CRT, and the cancellation of Dr. Seuss. And so they have found a bright new shiny object of outrage, that bastion of moral decadence and wokeness, the Walt Disney Company.”

I am not sure decadence can have bastions, but if “bastion of moral decadence” is not an oxymoron, then surely it applies to Disney as well as it could apply to anything.

Sykes quotes Tucker Carlson, “tak[ing] time out from his Putin-fluffing”: “They have a sexual agenda for six-year-old children. You’d think that’s illegal in some way. It’s certainly immoral. It’s creepy as hell. And yet they are the country’s leading purveyor of children’s programming. That’s a problem, no?” [Emphasis in original.]

The editor of the Bulwark does not bother to explain why he (presumably) disagrees. Carlson’s casting of “a sexual agenda for six-year-old children” as “immoral”, “creepy”, and “a problem” is presented without comment—to Sykes, it seems, such characterization is self-evidently absurd.

The fact that Carlson is obviously correct does not seem to bother him. I hope, for his sake, that Charlie Sykes would agree that a global megacorporation using its stranglehold on the children’s and family markets to sell left-wing sexual ideology to kids in their formative years is, in fact, a problem. I’ll give him the benefit of the doubt and assume he just doesn’t believe it’s happening.

But this is hardly a more defensible position. Christopher Rufo, a conservative activist who rose to prominence reporting on critical race theory in schools and elsewhere, has Disney’s rainbow militants dead to rights. In one video posted to Rufo’s Twitter, a production coordinator named Allen March boasts of “exploring queer stories” in work on a show called Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur. March worries that, because it may not be obvious that a cartoon character is gay or trans, these characters must be given “stories where they can, like, be their whole selves”—that is, stories that center and highlight their sexual proclivities on a children’s show.

Afterword

"There is no safety for honest men but by believing all possible evil of evil men."

-Edmund Burke

WE'VE ALL SPILLED A LOT OF PIXELS on the subject of "narratives" these past two years. The C19 propaganda was the catalyst for our great awakening to the increasingly mature practice of perception management by which the Western world has been victimized. This was followed by the "no evidence of foul play in the 2020 election" storyline (and the related "insurrection" labeling for dissent from that narrative). Now we have the "Russia is an unprovoked aggressor; Ukraine is an innocent victim" fable being laid down thick and fast, and there are literally dozens of branches growing off all of the foregoing storylines.

But there's one still very active narrative that preceded all those mentioned above, and which, after a bit of an early struggle many years ago, has largely gone unchallenged since. This is the fable that people are born "queer", and that therefore the only proper policy regarding all things related to "queerness" is that of accommodation.

The Disney Company reaction to the Parental Rights law just enacted in Florida is grounded in this genetic queerness storyline, as is the arguing position of all of its opponents, nicely summarized and exemplified in Chasten Buttigieg's, "This will kill kids" nonsense quoted by Declan Leary in his excellent piece above. The spin is that since kids are born "in the wrong bodies" and with sexual dispositions predetermined and immutable, and so forth, any institutional demeanor which is not both friendly and affirming of these supposed characteristics is necessarily hostile and discriminatory against the affected children.

It is by this formulation, too, that concealment from the parents of the supposedly emergent queerness of their children in school is justified-- if those parents don't already know and support/affirm/further that emergence, they are hostile to the very nature of their own kids, and inherently abusive.

It is also by this formulation that arguments are made for medical and psychological mutilation of kids so as to prevent inconvenient physiological interferences (i.e., puberty) with the flowering of their true identities as women weirdly born into male bodies and vice versa.

ALL THIS IS ABSURD-- indeed grossly corrupt, if not outright demented. Children are neither born queer, nor in the wrong bodies.

This simple truth is easily shown by the rapidly increasing percentages of people self-identifying as queer with a drop in the age of the surveyed groups. Only 2% of Baby Boomers self-identify as queer. 15.9% of Gen Zs do so.

Plainly, "queerness" is a mental state being inculcated in vulnerable populations, rather than being genetically inherent (since were the latter true, the numbers would be roughly the same across all age groups, in a time like ours in which "coming out" has been not only tolerated but vigorously encouraged and even celebrated for decades, and that without even getting to the transmission problem of supposed "gay" genes regardless of the stats).

Kids are NOT born queer. Instead, they are vulnerable targets for groomers intent on cementing in place the institutional accommodation of their often neurotic and psychotic lifestyle choices by creating an ever-larger cohort of fellow travelers.

The only kids arriving at school expressing "queerness" are those taught to do so at home by irresponsible, if not abusive, parents, and the only ones at any risk of self-harm are those sufficiently bent in their vulnerable minds by this alien pressure to feel or act out "gender dysphoria" (either in the "trans" or the "gay" versions) so as to have become dangerously unstable and fragile.

At the same time, the cohort of the queerness enthusiasts already infesting the schools (an infestation which appears to be disturbingly well-advanced) is eager to spread its illness and wants free rein to make the attempt with all children made available to them, and without the inconveniences of possible adverse parental oversight.

THIS IS NOT TO SAY that I take issue with the sexual practices or self-mutilations of consenting adults, who certainly have the right to harbor and nurture in themselves whatever distorted views of reality they prefer, even unto outright unhinged mental illness. I may find such things distasteful or even horrifying, but if you're an adult, well, you be you, right?

(I do draw the line at absurd and socially dangerous pretenses of men being-- or being capable of becoming-- women, or women being really men.)

However, libertarian acceptance of the right of adults to live queerly is not acceptance of the grooming by such adults of children--even by their own parents, and especially not by school workers.

The Florida Parental Rights bill is a good thing and should be replicated in every state. Those railing against it should be denounced and ostracized by all decent Americans.

In particular (to stick to the immediate context in which these remarks are made) the Disney Company should be recognized as a pustule on the body politic, and shunned in every respect by everyone. Frankly, that company has been a cultural vampire for decades.

Now the full measure of its corruption has been exposed to the sunlight, and as with any vampire it should begin to melt away-- and will, if we all now turn our backs on the fetid thing and walk away.

FINALLY, IT IS WORTH OBSERVING that just as The Disney Company's evil has been brought to light by this Parental Rights bill, so to should the inherent dangers of sending children to government schools now be clear to everyone. "Queerness" is not the only delusion or pathology about which school personnel are enthusiastic, and in the promulgation of which your children are seen as targets of opportunity. There are MANY, MANY more, and all are being pushed hard and fast.

Do the right thing, as inconvenient as it may seem until you have tried it: Homeschool your children!!

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.

Are you ready for a challenge that'll put some real meaning behind all the effort you went through to get your credentials? Send me an email.

Are You Ready For More Power?

"Peter Hendrickson has done it again! 'Upholding The Law' does for individual liberties what 'Cracking the Code' did for tax law compliance: exposes the reader to the unalienable truth!"

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.
