June 6- In 1889, fire destroys all of
downtown Seattle. The city is promptly rebuilt, entirely without supervision or
assistance from FEMA. In 1925, the Chrysler Corporation is founded. In 1932,
the first federal gasoline tax is imposed. In 1933, the first drive-in theater
opens, in Camden, New Jersey. In 1933, the U.S. Securities and Exchange
Commission is established. In 1966, civil rights activist James Meredith is
shot. In 1968, Robert Kennedy dies of the gunshot wound received the previous
day. In 2005, the United States Supreme Court issues the lawless and barbaric "Raich
v. Gonzales" decision.

How Many Times Does This
Have To Be Said...
...before people who claim to fear the
madness and corruption in Washington open their eyes
to the singular solution lying before them and
actually do something?
Paul's amendment was defeated, of
course-- providing emphasis to the importance of
individual Americans being made aware of the
liberating, state-restraining truth about the income
tax by which so much government
corruption and other mischief-- at both the federal
and state levels-- are made possible. See
this for a quick and easily-shareable summary of
how that all works, and how widespread knowledge of
the legal realities of the income tax would fix
these dire problems.
After sending that linked piece, 'On
Shrinking Leviathan', as far and wide as
possible, join me in celebrating some recent
additions to the
hundreds of thousands of victories
real American heroes acting to shut
down the lunacy and corruption since 2003. These
good folks, who have simply, but courageously, stood
up and withdrawn their support for it all after
learning of their right to do so, and how to do so,
are liberty's true superstars:
Gerry & Vicki
GERRY & VICKI HAVE SECURED a complete
refund of everything taken from their earnings and
given over to New Mexico during 2021, having
determined and shown that none of those earnings
were the result of taxable activities:
RICK & ANN share their complete refund
from Oregon of everything withheld during 2021:
...secured by way of
this filing, with the pleasant addition note
that their original claim was adjusted upward from
$309.00 by the state with the addition of a credit
Rick & Ann had overlooked.
I'm going to take this opportunity to
also share Rick & Ann's 2020 Oregon victory (which
is slightly less than it should have been, due,
apparently, to a mistake made in reporting the very
confusing COVID "unemployment" giveaways during that
year, but still all but $48 of the total amount
withheld, and which is related to the credit Rick &
Ann received in the 2021 refund shown above,
according to the notice given):
IT IS MY GREAT PLEASURE to be able to
post a series of victories won all at once by
truth-warrior Jeff Giraldi. Jeff began his
CtC-educated journey back in 2014, making his
first proper federal filing for 2013 in March of
that year, followed in September by an amended
return for 2011. Unfortunately, a few mistakes were
made with each of these initial filings, and Jeff
found himself targeted by some IRS bad behavior,
then, and over subsequent years, including
the imposition of some bogus (and toothless)
penalties and a refusal to acknowledge Jeff's
Last summer, however, and again this
past February, the ice dam against which Jeff had
patiently pushed the whole time finally cracked. In
July, 2021, Jeff suddenly received flat
acknowledgements that he had done nothing taxable
under the income tax laws in 2014, 2018, and 2019;
in February, 2022, he got that notice for 2020:
As seen, Jeff's refunds have all been
diverted against hoax "frivolous return penalties"
allegedly arising due to his 2011 and 2013 filings
(but not so seriously alleged as to have led to any
of them being pursued over all the years since those
filings until this little due-process-less on-paper
charade could be performed, by which the burden of
going to court is shifted to Jeff...). Nonetheless,
each and every one of these surrenders is a critical
admission by the IRS of
the fundamental truth about the tax and how it
applied (or didn't, in fact) to Jeff's earnings.
Jeff still has some work to do in order
to be made whole for these years, but he is now
freshly energized and equipped. At the same time,
Jeff's time in the rough before pushing his through
to the fairway emphasizes the liberating truth for
the benefit of everyone else, and should be used

CtC-educated American Tony Scaccia. Tony offers a thoughtful but pointed
perspective nicely tuned with simple good sense and
proper self-respect, seasoned with a light dose of
WELL DONE, EVERYONE!
HATS VERY MUCH OFF to Gerry & Vicki,
Rick & Ann, Ryan, Michael, Jeff and Tony! Their 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.
Their great activism and outreach drive everything
...and have their right to them
expressly secured by the US Constitution.
FRANKLY, THE PARENTS BEING PREVENTED
from rushing to the aid of their children in Robb
Elementary School the week before last, as we all saw
afterwards in horrifying cell-phone videos, should
have shot or clubbed their way through the cops who
stood in their path. Every cop who participated in
that blockade should be tried as an accessory to
murder, having effectively helped the killer proceed
with his crimes unimpeded.
Those are harsh words. But children are
dead who needn't be, and as a consequence of a
grossly-corrupt distortion of the proper purpose and
legitimate authority of government.
Unsurprisingly, the assisted murders of
those children and school staff in Uvalde, Texas,
are now being exploited by despicable enemies of the
rule of law in an effort to further leverage the
widespread misunderstanding of the proper purpose
and legitimate authority of government that
contributed to last week's tragedy. The object is to
use the Uvalde shootings as a justification for a
renewed assault on the Second Amendment.
Let me offer a few points that might
help rein in this madness...
I'LL START WITH THE FACT that Constitutions-- federal or state--
are not entrusted for their implementation,
interpretation or enforcement to officials elected
or appointed to the offices they authorize. Indeed,
it is quite the opposite.
The Second Amendment to the US
Constitution (and corresponding provisions in state
Constitutions), for instance, says that the right of the people to
keep and bears arms shall not be infringed. There is
no allowance within the provision for legislative or
judicial (much less executive) determination of what
this means and how, and to what degree, the
proscription of infringement is to be honored.
There CAN'T BE any such allowance, nor
can one be assumed or implied. The amendment's
proscription, after all, is AGAINST government
Constitutions are the law LAID UPON
government officials. They are not merely directives as to
what government officials should do or should refrain from
"In questions of power, let no more be
heard of confidence in man, but bind him down from
mischief by the chains of the constitution."
Those officials, singly or en masse,
have no more authority or latitude to determine the
scope of their prescriptions or proscriptions than
a guy wanting to break into houses has to determine the scope of the burglary laws
established by his community.
After all, if government officials,
singly or en masse, could determine the meaning of
"infringe" or "keep" or "bear" or "arms" or "the
people", then the right secured by the Second
Amendment would be meaningless.
I guarantee that if I am given the
latitude to define any one of those terms, I can
strip Americans of that right. And after
implementing the consequence of that change, I could
then strip Americans of all other rights,
unconcerned about resistance.
SO, THE HECTORING DEMENTIA PATIENT in
the Oval Office can prattle on about "rights not
being absolute". But the rest of us have to say,
"Sorry, Joe. Wrong, as usual."
As regards the United States (and any
other government entity whose establishing
Constitution has a Second Amendment equivalent), the
right to keep and bear arms IS absolute, because
each such government is prohibited from infringing
it, full stop.
There are no exceptions provided.
Arms kept and borne by individuals are
simply outside the scope of legitimate governmental
interest or authority-- and again, not merely
because no such authority is delegated in the
Constitution. Arms kept and borne by the people are
also entirely outside the purview of government
because any exercise of such authority, even if
creatively or corruptly rationalized, or reliant on
some craft such as regulating the manufacture or
marketing of arms, is EXPRESSLY PROHIBITED.
That's really all that need be said, to
a people accustomed to respecting the law.
But of course, Americans are multiple
generations away from respecting the law. Further,
the grinding assault on Western Civilization and our
own American history that has been going on for the
past decade under the name of identity (read:
grievance) politics has been steadily and very
deliberately aggravating disrespect for the law
among those inclined that way and enervating those
who would be its defenders.
So, let's continue with a study of of
the reasons the Second Amendment was required by the
Founders in order for the Constitution, by sole
authority of which any office can be exercised by
Joe Biden and everyone in his administration, or in
Congress, or presiding over any federal courtroom,
to be ratified.
We'll also parse out the detailed
meaning of the words used in constructing the
amendment, and their context, making clear beyond
dispute exactly what right the amendment secures.
Read it all. It's not long, and it is a
diamond-mine for those meaning to stand up in
effective defense of our Second Amendment rights.
Understand this, too: The people on
whom YOU will be relying to argue this matter out in
the media and in Congress and in the courts DO NOT
KNOW what you are about to learn. You might expect
the contrary, considering their positions, but you'd
be wrong. Some may know a bit what follows, or sort
of know a bit, but none will have the whole picture,
with all the bases covered, except those who have
read the piece directly, themselves.
See to it that all those people, and
everyone else, knows it all.

A Few Words About The Second
"A nation of sheep will beget a
government of wolves."
-Edward R. Murrow
"A well-regulated militia being
necessary to the security of a free State, the right
of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be
-United States Constitution
Let's begin with the plain and
straightforward intent of those who wrote and
adopted the amendment, and then some observations by
a few other specialists:
"The strongest reason for the people to
retain the right to keep and bear arms is, as a last
resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in
"The Constitution shall never be
construed... to prevent the people of the United
States who are peaceable citizens from keeping their
"Americans have the right and advantage
of being armed—unlike the citizens of other
countries whose governments are afraid to trust the
people with arms."
"God grants liberty only to those who
love it, and are always ready to guard and defend
"[The right to keep and bear arms] may
be considered as the true palladium of liberty ....
The right of self defence is the first law of
nature: in most governments it has been the study of
rulers to confine this right within the narrowest
limits possible. Wherever standing armies are kept
up, and the right of the people to keep and bear
arms is, under any colour or pretext whatsoever,
prohibited, liberty, if not already annihilated, is
on the brink of destruction. In England, the people
have been disarmed, generally, under the specious
pretext of preserving the game: a never failing lure
to bring over the landed aristocracy to support any
measure, under that mask, though calculated for very
different purposes. True it is, their bill of rights
seems at first view to counteract this policy: but
the right of bearing arms is confined to
protestants, and the words suitable to their
condition and degree, have been interpreted to
authorize the prohibition of keeping a gun or other
engine for the destruction of game, to any farmer,
or inferior tradesman, or other person not qualified
to kill game. So that not one man in five hundred
can keep a gun in his house without being subject to
"The congress of the United States
possesses no power to regulate, or interfere with
the domestic concerns, or police of any state: it
belongs not to them to establish any rules
respecting the rights of property; nor will the
constitution permit any prohibition of arms to the
-Saint George Tucker, close friend of
Thomas Jefferson and Justice of the Virginia Supreme
Court, in his edition of 'Blackstone's
Commentaries On The Law' (1803)
"The next amendment is: 'A well
regulated militia being necessary to the security of
a free state, the right of the people to keep and
bear arms shall not be infringed.'
of this article will scarcely be doubted by any
persons, who have duly reflected upon the subject.
The militia is the natural defence of a free country
against sudden foreign invasions, domestic
insurrections, and domestic usurpations of power by
rulers. It is against sound policy for a free people
to keep up large military establishments and
standing armies in time of peace, both from the
enormous expenses, with which they are attended, and
the facile means, which they afford to ambitious and
unprincipled rulers, to subvert the government, or
trample upon the rights of the people. The right of
the citizens to keep and bear arms has justly been
considered, as the palladium of the liberties of a
republic; since it offers a strong moral check
against the usurpation and arbitrary power of rulers
[meaning that they are on notice that bad behavior
will be punished -PH]; and will generally, even if
these are successful in the first instance, enable
the people to resist and triumph over them."
-United States Supreme Court Justice
Joseph Story, in 'Commentaries
On The Constitution Of The United States'
"The [second] amendment, like most
other provisions in the Constitution, has a history.
It was adopted with some modification and
enlargement from the English Bill of Rights of 1688,
where it stood as a protest against arbitrary action
of the overturned dynasty in disarming the people,
and as a pledge of the new rulers that this
tyrannical action should cease. The right declared
was meant to be a strong moral check against the
usurpation and arbitrary power of rulers, and as a
necessary and efficient means of regaining rights
when temporarily overturned by usurpation."
Right is General. -- It may be supposed from the
phraseology of this provision that the right to keep
and bear arms was only guaranteed to the militia;
but this would be an interpretation not warranted by
the intent. The militia, as has been elsewhere
explained, consists of those persons who, under the
law, are liable to the performance of military duty,
and are officered and enrolled for service when
called upon. But the law may make provision for the
enrollment of all who are fit to perform military
duty, or of a small number only, or it may wholly
omit to make any provision at all; and if the right
were limited to those enrolled, the purpose of this
guaranty might be defeated altogether by the action
or neglect to act of the government it was meant to
hold in check. The meaning of the provision,
undoubtedly is, that the people, from whom the
militia must be taken, shall have the right to keep
and bear arms, and they need no permission or
regulation of law for the purpose, but this enables
the government to have a well regulated militia; for
to bear arms implies something more than the mere
keeping; it implies the learning to handle and use
them in a way that makes those who keep them ready
for their efficient use; in other words, it implies
the right to meet for voluntary discipline in arms,
observing in doing so the laws of public order."
-Thomas Cooley, Justice of The
Michigan Supreme Court, in 'Principles
Of Constitutional Law' (1880)
The prospect of tyranny may not grab
the headlines the way vivid stories of gun crime
routinely do. But few saw the Third Reich coming
until it was too late. The Second Amendment is a
doomsday provision, one designed for those
exceptionally rare circumstances where all other
rights have failed — where the government refuses to
stand for reelection and silences those who protest;
where courts have lost the courage to oppose, or can
find no one to enforce their decrees. However
improbable these contingencies may seem today,
facing them unprepared is a mistake a free people
get to make only once.
-Federal appellate Judge Alex Kozinski
in the 2003 case of Silveira vs. Lockyer.
Now let's analyze the amendment (and
arguments intended to eviscerate it) logically:
Those behind the effort to effect the
diminishment of our rights by shamelessly exploiting
the murders of those whom lunatic liberalism has
left disarmed and helpless against the occasional
madness that erupts in every society (and which
does not confine itself in its violence to firearms,
btw), and who would deploy the force of government
to do so-- however draped with the trappings of
legislative process in enacting the infringements
they are expressly prohibited from enacting-- are
exactly those against whom the Second Amendment is
Further, courtesy and the assumption of
good intentions in those who, by their very words
and deeds prove no such assumption is sound are
misplaced and dangerous:
"It is proper to take alarm at the
first experiment on our liberties. We hold this
prudent jealousy to be the first duty of Citizens
and one of the noblest characteristics of the late
Revolution. The free men 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

by believing all possible evil of evil men."

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
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.

that you would go to yourself for trustworthy leadership.

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...

Yes, that’s right, just as
the survivors of The Simulated Apocalyptic Plague of
2020-2021 were crawling up out of their Covid
bunkers and starting to “build the world back
better,” another biblical pestilence has apparently
been unleashed on humanity!
This time it’s the dreaded
monkeypox, a viral zoonotic disease endemic to
central and western Africa that circulates among
giant pouched rats, squirrels, dormice, and other
rodents and has been infecting humans for centuries,
or millennia. Monkeypox causes fever, headaches,
muscle aches, and sometimes fluid-filled blisters,
tends to resolve in two to four weeks, and thus
poses absolutely zero threat to human civilization
The corporate media do not
want to alarm us, but it is their duty as
professional journalists to report that THE
MONKEYPOX IS SPREADING LIKE WILDFIRE! OVER 100 CASES
OF MONKEYPOX have been confirmed in countries
throughout the world! MONKEYPOX TASKFORCES are being
convened! Close-up photos of NASTY-LOOKING MONKEYPOX
LESIONS are being disseminated! The President of the
United States says “EVERYBODY SHOULD BE CONCERNED!”
Here in the capital of New
Normal Germany, Karl Lauterbach, who, despite
wasting hundreds of millions of Euros on superfluous
“vaccines,” attempting to compulsorily “vaccinate”
every man, woman, and child in the country, and
otherwise behaving like a fascist lunatic, remains
the official Minister of Health, is excitedly
hopping up and down and hooting like a Siamang
“recommendations for isolation and quarantine,” and
other “monkeypox containment measures.”
As Yogi Berra famously put
it, “it’s like déjà vu all over again.”
Except that it isn’t … or
it probably isn’t. Before I could even finish this
column, the United GloboCap Ministries of Truth
started dialing down the monkeypox panic. It appears
they’re going with “it’s a gay pandemic,” or an
“LGBTQ pandemic,” or an “LGBTQIA+ pandemic,” or
whatever the official acronym is by the time I click
the “publish” button, and making other noises to the
effect that it might not be absolutely necessary
this time to order a full-scale global lockdown,
release the drones and robotic dogs, inject
everybody with experimental drugs, and start
viciously persecuting “monkeypox deniers.”
You didn’t really believe
they were launching a shot-by-shot remake of Covid,
did you? The showrunners at GloboCap may be
preternaturally evil, but they aren’t stupid. Only
the most hopelessly brainwashed New Normals would go
along with another “apocalyptic pandemic” before the
current one has even been officially cancelled. No,
unfortunately, odds are, we’re just getting a
preview of what “life” is going to be like in
the New Normal Reich, where the masses will be
perpetually menaced by an inexhaustible assortment

The New Normal was never
about Covid specifically. It was always about
implementing a new “reality” —
a pathologized-totalitarian “reality,” not so
much ruled as discreetly “guided” by unaccountable,
supranational, non-governmental governing entities,
global corporations, and assorted billionaires — in
which Covid, or monkeypox, or kangaroopox, or any
other viral zoonotic disease, or any climate-related
or economic development, or aberrant ideological or
behavioral tendency, could be used as a pretext to
foment another outbreak of mindless mass hysteria
and impose additional restrictions on society.
That new “reality” has been
implemented … perhaps not as firmly as originally
intended, but implemented nonetheless. We are being
conditioned to accept this new “reality,” as we were
conditioned to accept the War on Terror “reality,”
to pointlessly remove our footwear at the airport,
place our liquids in travel-size containers, submit
to groping by “security staff,” and otherwise live
in a state of constant low-level fear of a
“terrorist attack,” as we are now being conditioned
to wear masks where we are told, submit to mandatory
“vaccination,” and live in constant low-level fear
of the next purportedly deadly pathogen.
Sadly, most of us will
accept this conditioning, and adapt to the “minor
inconveniences” that are being imposed on us at
every turn. After all, what difference does it
really make if we have to wear a little mask on an
airplane, or on public transport, or at the doctor’s
office? And is it really such a breach of our
fundamental rights to freedom of speech, freedom of
movement, association, privacy, and basic bodily
autonomy if we have to allow governments and global
corporations to censor our political opinions,
prevent us from traveling, forbid us to protest, and
force us to submit to invasive medical treatments in
order to hold a job? We got used to taking off our
shoes at the airport and watching the “security
staff” fondle our kids’ genitals, and invading and
bombing other countries and murdering whole families
with drones, didn’t we? Surely, we’ll get used to
Or … OK, I won’t, and
neither will you, probably, but the majority of the
masses will. They just demonstrated that pretty
clearly, didn’t they? As they demonstrated it during
the Global War on Terror. As they demonstrated it
during the Cold War. As they demonstrated it … oh,
"There is no safety for honest men but by believing all
possible evil of evil men."
AS USUAL, HOPKINS lays out horrifying truths with a deft
and delicate touch. Maybe a little too little stridency, sometimes, but
he always puts a bright light where it needs to be.
I have little (really nothing) to add
to Hopkins' sketch of the problem-- so let me just
go straight to the take-away and the solution: As
said as plainly as I am able to say it in both of
the two other new articles in this newsletter,
above, IT IS TIME FOR AMERICANS TO STOP ACQUIESCING
TO THE EROSION OF OUR LIBERTY AND THE
PROPER RULE OF LAW.
This IS what each person is doing if he
or she is not actively and openly and loudly saying
"NO!" and raising a din to alert others of their
right, and their duty, to do the same. Most are
doing neither, even most in the
CtC community, I am very sorry to say (think of
how long it's been, for instance, since you posted a
comment on an article appearing on these pages and
helped create a buzz and draw more eyes...).
The stark and terrible fact is that our
civilization is being overthrown, right now.
That is, right now, while we watch (or
don't watch, having been sucked into distractions),
America's (and Western Civilization's) core and
critically-important values, of individual,
autonomous liberty with strictly limited government
bound down by written-- and respected--
Constitutions which we have ourselves ordained, are
being ripped from our grasp and trampled into the

right now. The battle is already raging, and the bad
guys are leveraging the fact that most of the good
guys are paying no attention, or have been so
hollowed-out as to be unable to gin up the gumption
to defend their own interests (and those of their
What is happening is a tragedy, both
because what we are letting slip away is so
beautiful, so good, and so rare, and because all we need to do
to reverse the erosion, and successfully defend that
beautiful, good and rare treasure is one simple
thing, acting entirely as individuals with no
agreement from any institutional authority. That one
simple thing will function as a catalyst, compelling
the beneficial reorganization of our whole societal
and political structure as a natural and inevitable
You can see a sketch of that process
and its outcomes-- which, remember, we have already
implemented in America, and maintained for better
than half our time as a nation, so this is not
pie-in-the-sky but a thoroughly proven thing--

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

a plainly-marked Navy intelligence ship flying a U.S. flag deep in international
waters, was strafed and torpedoed by Israeli warplanes and ships for more than
an hour, killing 34 crewmembers and wounding 171. Israel claims the attack was
a case of mistaken identity, and Admiral John McCain Jr. (father of the late
U.S. Senator McCain) convened a 10-day investigation of the incident within a
week of its occurrence, which endorsed this explanation and declared the matter
closed. However, internal White House documents indicate that the Johnson
administration knew better. Johnson himself ordered that no rescue ships were
to be dispatched from the carrier group closest to the stricken ship during the
attack. The survivors have been demanding a new investigation for years without
