-Thomas Paine

 

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

Illuminating anniversaries of this week:

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.

Friends, join me at 8:30 PM EDST tonight on the radio with Willie Shields at WVLT.com. We'll be talking about the FBI/Democrat false flag "plot to kidnap Gretchen Whitmer" and related matters.

"It does not take a majority to prevail... but rather an irate, tireless minority, keen on setting brushfires of freedom in the minds of men."

-Samuel Adams

HEY, People!

Please don't just read what I post here (or anywhere), and nod your head sagely or approvingly and then move on to other things. I don't post in order to affirm your sense of things. I post in order to equip you with perspectives and arguments with which to educate others, and in the expectation that you will forward my posts to other people (or direct them to those posts). PLEASE do those things, especially in recognition of the fact that my posts are heavily suppressed. They will NOT get out if you don't get them out.

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

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?

LAST WEEK SENATOR RAND PAUL proposed a perfectly sensible-- indeed, obviously appropriate-- amendment to a $40 billion giveaway to Ukraine, which would have required oversight and accountability regarding the disposition of what is, after all, OUR money. Among other things, such oversight might expose how much of the giveaway is sent back in "campaign contributions" and other forms to the pockets of those voting for the handout.

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 won by 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 Langwell

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:

Here is the filing that secured this return of Gerry & Vicki's property.

***

Ryan MacCubbin

WE'LL START BY MEETING RYAN through this excellent testimonial video he has just shared, in which, among other things, Ryan shows us many of his victories up to that point:

As luck would have it, Ryan's complete refund of 2021 withholdings from New Mexico arrived in his mailbox just after his submission of this great video:

This latest victory for Ryan was secured by way of this filing; his others are documented among those posted here.

***

Rick & Ann Cunningham

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):

Here is that 2020 filing.

Michael Z. Johnson

MICHAEL SHARES his latest victory in reclaiming property from California:

Here is the related filing.

Jeff Giraldi

IT IS MY GREAT PLEASURE to be able to post a series of victories won all at once by longtime 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 claims.

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:

The filings to which these notices apply can be seen here, here, here and here.

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 accordingly.

Anthony Scaccia

WE'LL CLOSE THIS CELEBRATION OF HEROES with a great video by 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 appropriate attitude.

Enjoy!

***

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 forward.

Btw, YOUR victories could be posted, too!

It's easy. Stand up on behalf of the law, and then share the evidence.

That's all there is to it!

YOUR inspiring being-the-storm video could be posted, too! This is easy to do, and very important (plus it can get you some great LHC swag!). See (and carefully read in their entirety) these guidelines and encouragements.

Remember, it's all about upholding the law, and that is YOUR responsibility. Awakening others to this high and honorable duty is the best way to make it happen.

"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

 

"The Tax Code represents the genius of legal fiction... The IRS has never really known why people pay the income tax... The IRS encourages voluntary compliance, through FEAR."

-Jack Warren Wade Jr., former IRS officer in charge of the IRS Nationwide Revenue Officer Training Program, in his book 'When You Owe The IRS'

Why Americans Need Weapons Of War

...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.

If successful, this pernicious effort will eventually accomplish a tragedy of far greater scope, as the ghosts of a few 100 million disarmed victims of government murder during the 20th century will attest.

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 officials.

Constitutions are the law LAID UPON government officials. They are not merely directives as to what government officials should do or should refrain from doing.

"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."

-Thomas Jefferson

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.

There will be a link to the essay that follows at the end of this excerpt (which you must click on yourself to read the rest of the material, and which you can send around to others, with a suitable introduction and persuasive admonition to READ IT ALL). There is a permalink to this article in its entirety-- what is above and below-- at the very end of this post.

A Few Words About The Second Amendment

"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 infringed."

-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 Government."

-Thomas Jefferson

 

"The Constitution shall never be construed... to prevent the people of the United States who are peaceable citizens from keeping their own arms."

-Samuel Adams

 

"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."

-James Madison

 

"God grants liberty only to those who love it, and are always ready to guard and defend it."

-Daniel Webster

 

"[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 a penalty.

"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 people;..."

-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.'

"The importance 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' (1833)

 

"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."

"The 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:

Continue with the very important remainder of the essay...

***

NOW, DID YOU READ IT ALL? Good!

Here are some parting thoughts:

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 provided.

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 principle."

-James Madison

 

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

-Edmund Burke

Finally,

"Resistance to tyranny is obedience to God"

-Thomas Jefferson

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.

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

Regarding Trolleries

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

 

 

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

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

Tim Kendrick has posted a video on YouTube regarding donations. I didn't know what to do about it to begin with; I don't do what I do intending for anyone to feel obligated in any way.

But of course, no one IS obligated. I will continue to make my work freely-available here, and in my books for only the cost of a cheap paperback.

Thus, even though I post it here below, Tim's very thoughtful personal resolution and encouragement to others is just an invitation for consideration by those who may not be conscious of the fact that I can't do what I do without support. No one is to feel any pressure from it; if it moves anyone to act let it be solely because it seems right.

How To Be A Leader In The CtC Community

It's simple:

KNOW THE TRUTH ABOUT THE TAX IN DETAIL

LEAD BY EXAMPLE

KNOW WHERE TO FIND THE RESOURCES

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

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

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

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

Are You Having Trouble Spreading The Word?

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

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

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

Monkeypaxmania

by CJ Hopkins

Lock yourselves down inside your homes! Break out the masks and prophylactic face-shields! Switch off what’s left of your critical faculties and prepare yourselves to “follow the Science!”

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 generally.

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!”

The WHO is calling it “a multi-country monkeypox outbreak!” Belgium has introduced a mandatory quarantine. The CDC has gone to “Alert Level 2!” “Enhanced precautions” are recommended! In New York City, the nexus of probably the most paranoid, mask-wearing, quadruple-“vaccinated” New Normal fanatics on the face of the planet, the Department of Health is instructing everyone to wear the masks they are already wearing to protect them from both Covid and monkeypox, and smallpox, and largepox, and airborne cancer, and God knows what other horrors might be out there!

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 gibbon about “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 of exotic pathogens and interchangeable pseudo-pathological threats.

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 this.

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, never mind.

Afterword

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

-Edmund Burke

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 dust.

We have to act, or kiss it all goodbye, 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 kids).

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 process.

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-- in the presentation here. Read it, think about it, share it.

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..."

[Y]ou really need to familiarize yourself with Pete Hendrickson's absolutely magnificent work at his website and in his book(s). He has, brilliantly and lucidly, "cracked the code" regarding the federal income EXCISE tax(es)."

-Mark C. Phillips, JD

 

"...I find your work fascinatingly simple to understand."

-Jerry Arnowitz, JD

 

"Your book is a masterpiece!"

-Michael Carver, JD

 

"Received your book yesterday. Started reading at 11 PM, finished at 4 AM." "I have 16 feet (literally 16' 4.5") of documents supporting just about everything in your book." "Your book should be required reading for every lawyer before being admitted to any Bar." "I hope you sell a million of them."

-John O'Neil Green, JD

 

�Thanks again for your efforts, Pete. They mean an awful lot to a lot of people.� ��as an attorney, I am humbled by your knowledge and ability in navigating the law. THANK YOU for your hard work and sacrifice.�

-Eric Smithers, JD

 

"I am an attorney and want to give a testimonial to your book, which I find to be compelling. I am exercising these rights for myself and my adult children. I'm even considering making this my new avenue of law practice."

-Nancy "Ana" Garner, JD

Learn what these colleagues already know, then step forward and become part of a coordinated, mutually-supportive squadron focused on developing strategy and deploying the law in courtrooms across the country. There's a lot of suing that needs doing right now.

Do you know someone truly steeped in the Kool-Aid?

 

I mean someone who finds it easier to believe that the far-better-educated, far-more-suspicious-of-government Americans of a hundred years ago were complete morons who granted authority to the state to take whatever it wished from themselves and their posterity than to imagine that they themselves simply misunderstand the true nature of the income tax? Even while knowing that their beliefs about the tax are derived entirely from the representations of those who profit from those beliefs (like tax bureaucrats and "tax professionals")?

 

Do you know someone like that? Shake them awake with the latest (sixteenth) edition of CtC!

C'mon! CtC can't be right! You're crazy!

If CtC were actually right, it would mean the government's been concealing and denying and suppressing the truth for years on end, and everybody knows THAT would never happen...

June 12- In 1775, British general Thomas Gage declares martial law in Massachusetts, and calls on all rebels to give up their firearms.  Amnesty is promised to all who will do so, with the exception of Samuel Adams and John Hancock, who are to be summarily hanged if apprehended.  The Americans (all still technically British subjects) tell the government to go pound sand.  In 1776, the Virginia Convention of Delegates unanimously adopts the Virginia Declaration of Rights.  In 1963, civil rights activist Medgar Evers is shot.  In 1964, Nelson Mandela is sentenced to life in prison for sabotage in South Africa.

Last Word

"If ye love wealth greater than liberty, the tranquility of servitude greater than the animating contest for freedom, go home from us in peace. We seek not your counsel, nor your arms. Crouch down and lick the hand that feeds you. May your chains set lightly upon you; and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen."

-Samuel Adams, Architect of the first American Revolution

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.
