About Oil-- A High-Utility Renewable Energy Resource

I WONDER, DOES EVERYBODY REALIZE that oil is a renewable resource? Despite the childish association of oil with dinosaurs (dinosaur juice, right?), oil is a product of any and all organic material that has simply been processed by heat and pressure for a sufficient amount of time. Every day in the present another ancient day's contribution of organic material crosses the threshold into oil, constantly renewing/increasing the supply.

Further, oil is a product of-- indeed, a concentration of-- solar power. It is by solar energy that the organics which become oil are generated and sustained in the first place. By the same token, when those products of past solar energy accumulation are consumed by the burning of the oil they have become, the carbon that is released (as carbon dioxide) contributes to the production of more organic material, by way of the plants it feeds and the animals that feed on those plants.

I claim no expertise in regard to these matters, and I'm sure that my little sketch above is very much overly simplistic in the eyes of anyone who can claim such expertise. Disputes or corrections from such experts are welcome.

But I think my summary is essentially correct, and that in this time of frothy and ruinous political assault on our long-standing, well-established and reliable existing energy infrastructure these facts need to be firmly in the minds of anyone involved in energy (and environmental) policy (which should be all of us)...

Sharing Good Words About What I Will Unabashedly Call A Medical Miracle

BACK IN MARCH of this year, I took several weeks off from writing this newsletter while I recovered from a medical procedure. The issue was a very badly torn (inner) biceps tendon.

The tear resulted from the wear caused by decades of weight-lifting combined with the ill effect of one sloppy lift for a curl session, followed by a year of just pushing through the pain without laying off the weights long enough for any healing to take place. (It likely never would have taken place no matter how much of a holiday I took, adult tendons normally having very poor blood flow and being therefore notoriously hard to heal).

When I finally faced the fact that the internet-informed physical therapy exercises I was deploying and the shoulder stabilizing braces I had begun wearing were just not doing any good last November, I went to my GP and was referred to an orthopedist. This fellow did some tests and scanned with ultrasound, ultimately announcing that the tendon was so far gone that he couldn't even find it with the scope.

I was sent for an MRI, which I had at the beginning of December. The scan revealed a 2 cm. tear in a rotator cuff ligament and confirmed the massive damage to the biceps tendon.

The recommendation by the orthopedist upon reviewing the images was that I undergo arthroscopic surgery for the rotator cuff tear and let him snip what was left of the tendon ("It won't be a total disaster... After all, you'll still have the outer tendon connecting that biceps muscle to your shoulder, right?").

I would, I was told, end up with no pain from the torn tendon and a repaired rotator cuff, but even after 6 months to a year of convalescence with my arm in a sling for a great deal of that time I would never again be able to lift more than twenty pounds overhead. And, of course, I would never be able to properly use my right biceps henceforth.

Crippled for the rest of my life, in other words-- just as has been the outcome, to a greater or lesser degree, for many people similarly injured over the years.

 WELL, I DEMURRED, and left the orthopedist's office with the declared intention of seeking a second opinion. But I had little hope and was feeling pretty devastated. Like my GP, the orthopedist had pointed out that I was, after all, 66 years old, and the body, especially those well-worked tendons, has been through a lot and lacks the recovery capacity it might have mustered in a situation like this 30 years ago. I couldn't argue against any of that...

However, I am by nature of problem-solver rather than a problem-wallower. And I am an optimist.

The discussion of recovery capacity issues led me to begin thinking about stem cells. I hit the net, looking for information.

I quickly found that stem cell treatments are widely available for various particular purposes. Hugely expensive, and not covered by insurance (being too new, it seems-- or for other reasons, as will be discussed anon...).

I ALSO LEARNED of another, stem-cell-related procedure, of which I had not previously been aware: Platelet-rich-plasma therapy (PRP). Also not covered by insurance, but much less expensive, and particularly suited to tendon injuries, I was told.

Very interested, I reviewed all that I could find on the subject, which included strong endorsement from the NIH based on aggregated independent clinical research review. Testimonials from doctors and patients were readily found.

The explanations of the process-- which is still relatively new-- have no tinge of snake-oil salesmanship, They are, instead, notable for a certain humility and sense of anticipation, reminding me of how I felt in the early 'oughts when the first CtC-educated victories began to mount in numbers and the increasingly-disturbed IRS began to respond with nothing but evasions and suppression.

My in-depth study led me to settle on the version of the preparation and procedure offered by Regenexx. The information offered was persuasive, testimonials were strong and compelling, and frankly, the attitude and demeanor of the staffer to whom I spoke when calling the nearest participating clinic (an hour-and-a-half drive from home) to get a live take on it all (something on which I put a lot of significance) was very reassuring and confirmational.

SO, I MADE THE DRIVE, got evaluated with motion and stress-tests, had my MRI scans and X-rays studied, and had a thorough ultrasound examination. I was told candidly that PRP could do nothing for my rotator cuff tear, due to the damage being located under bone and not accessible for ultrasound-- a key factor in the procedure, by which the required injections are guided.

But as I had already known, the rotator cuff issue was minor to the point of insignificance. I have not been substantially hindered by that tear at all, and have simply had to be more careful about form than was previously necessary when doing my lifting. The problem was the torn biceps tendon, which was found by the Regenexx doctor with the ultrasound, but looked like an overstretched rubberband-- thin, elongated, and with a huge oval hole running its length where the solid center should be. Happily, this could be addressed by PRP.

I scheduled the procedure, and on March 9, with Doreen along to drive me home afterward, returned to the Toledo clinic for the requisite blood-draw, centrifuging and concentration of platelets, and injection of the resulting concentrate. Here's how that goes:

The PRP gets injected into the sheath enclosing the tendon. This additional material pumped into that space generates a ferocious amount of pain, which lasts for three or four days, during which the arm must remain immobile in order to give the injection punctures time to seal up and ensure that the PRP stays where it is needed.

For the next two weeks absolute immobility of the arm is no longer required, but it must be kept as still as possible, and always down, with no unnecessary use and no loading. Over the third and fourth week more and more movement is ok, and by the fifth week gentle transition into normal behavior is encouraged.

In my case, being the impatient fellow that I am, I went ahead with a very light session with the weights early in the third week. One can't afford to lose ground at my age, and my shoulder was feeling great. I had no pain during the workout, but the whole area felt pretty lit up the next day, and for several more afterward (although this was also, to a similar degree, true of my other shoulder-- probably in both cases being as much due to the three weeks+ of inactivity).

About ten days after that light workout I had my first follow-up visit with the doctor. We looked at ultrasound imaging again, and happily, the tendon was still sealed with the PRP in place. The tendon also still looked just as it had before the injection, but this was expected.

The PRP itself is not a repair material. Rather, its presence invokes the body's healing mechanisms to its location, setting into motion the repairs which will take place gradually over the course of anything from three months to a full year.

Time would have to pass before anything really notable could happen. But I was encouraged to carry on with my workouts, using pain as the guide to the levels of load-- if a particular move hurt, reduce the load or change the form or move to something else. And so I did.

On June 8 I had my next follow-up visit at the clinic. For several weeks prior to that point I had resumed regular workouts using the same loads and intensity with which I had been working prior to the injections in March-- which means, lifting pretty much unhindered in every regard except in the avoidance of fully supinated biceps curls. I was completely pain-free at all times, working out or not.

When the ultrasound was deployed, it was enormously pleasing-- exciting, really-- to see that the overstretched and hollow rubberband has already been replaced by a solid cable of tendon-- not yet as dense as it will become, but plainly getting there quickly. Whoo-hoo!!

BASED ON ALL THE STUDY I HAD DONE after getting the original diagnosis from the "I'll just snip it..." conventional orthopedist, regrowth of a tendon such as I am now enjoying is almost unknown-- in the world of conventional orthopedics. That world really has no solution to this sort of fairly common injury, just mitigation techniques.

PRP, on the other hand, is a problem-solver. Based on my own experience, I think that by comparison to conventional practices, the relatively new PRP therapy qualifies as a minor medical miracle (or a major one, for those in need). I am very pleased to be able to share the news about this advanced treatment and hope that anyone suffering from any tendon issues consults with a practitioner.

This includes anyone with rotator cuff injuries-- as I said above, my particular rotator cuff issue could not be addressed with the PRP therapy, but only because of the location of my tear, under bone. Others may not encounter this impediment. Knee and ankle injuries are also areas of focus for PRP applications.

AS I MENTIONED EARLIER, PRP is not yet deemed standard-of-care treatment, and is not covered as a remedy by health insurance. Certainly the relative newness of the therapy (with PRP first being named in the 1970s and not being experimented with in tendon repair until much later) is a factor.

However, the cynic in me suspects that the more significant issue is the degree to which PRP therapy threatens to dislodge a well-established and lucrative orthopedics industry from a major portion of its perch, with all the attendant support industries that get wet beaks from every operation. My procedure-- conducted in the office-- took a total of 45 minutes, from the initial blood draw to the injection of the PRP concentrate and my departure for home.

The cost of the procedure was $1,200. While I didn't price out the alternatives, my guess is that any version of the possible arthroscopic surgeries that I might have ended up undergoing to arrive at the ultimately unsatisfying end results promised by the conventional orthopedist I initially consulted would have generated bills aggregating in the tens of thousands of dollars.

It is also my guess that the "standard of care" decision-making in this area, with which PRP now stands as a simple, low-cost and more effective competitor, rests in large part, at least, on the views of those who stand to capture a good chunk of those tens of thousands. I hope that everyone who can do so seeks out the PRP solution, both because of its obvious therapeutic benefits and in order to shift the standard-of-care structure away from hugely expensive conventional treatments (for which we all pay, in one way or another) to the more effective and dramatically less expensive PRP alternative.

The Grotesque And Unconscionable Abuse Of World Hero Julian Assange Continues

THE DESPICABLE BRITISH GOVERNMENT DECIDED LAST WEEK to continue the torment of Julian Assange for his exposure of US and UK war crimes and general corruption by approving his extradition to face bogus charges in a US star chamber. I reiterate my plea for anyone who has the ear (or email address) of Julian's legal team to direct those good folks to my analysis of the charges in this case, and the roadmap to defeating them in court (if a valid defense is recognized or respected by what will be a deeply corrupt court).

Please, anyone and everyone, help with this effort to whatever extent you can. The enormously-corrupt assault on Assange is a dagger over the heart of meaningful journalism regarding United States respect for the law (or lack thereof). If this assault isn't defeated, any hope of real self-government in America evaporates, as reliable knowledge of the activities of the state will no longer be available to the citizens who are supposed to be in charge of those activities, and whose blood and treasure are expended to pay for them all.

Life Imitating Art...

...or something like that...

WHENEVER I THINK OF THE PATHETIC CHILDREN distorted from their natural and healthy body-mind integration into unnatural and unhealthy disintegration by monsters in the home or the social or institutional environment, resulting in "queerness" of either the conventional or (especially) the relatively-recently-added "trans" variety, a representative image comes into my head. That image is of the broken and unnaturally-reconfigured toys from the 1995 movie 'Toy Story'.

In light of the Disney Company's recently outed and directly-stated goal of being one such social monster, it is ironic that the company itself, in an earlier persona, prefigured the plague of mental disease to the spreading of which it would later deliberately aspire in a particularly memorable and well-tuned fashion.

HERE'S ANOTHER IMAGE that I think is useful for representing the pathology of "queer" disintegration-- the "woman suit" being sewn together from skin taken from the victims of Buffalo Bill in 'Silence of the Lambs':

The suit is Bill's effort to reconfigure his outward appearance in conformity to what his diseased mind imagines to be its "real" and "proper" nature. Sound familiar?

Today, life for a growing list of victims has been made to imitate this horrific "art". While Buffalo Bill's psychosis was just a shocking element central to a gripping crime novel of the 1980s, today the mutilation of children to satisfy the same deeply disturbed notions of "gender dysphoria" is a commonplace.

Girls around the country (as well as elsewhere in the world) are groomed into "wanting" (and submitting to) the lopping off of their healthy breasts and other extreme, irreversible harms for the purpose of "rectifying" an encouraged discomfort with their natural, healthily-integrated selves. Boys are groomed into "wanting" (and submitting to) the same mutilations and chemical abuses.

It is a plague of mind-boggling insanity.

THOSE ALREADY FALLEN PREY to the socially-engendered plague of gender confusion, who are made less uncomfortable in their illness by its normalization, have succeeded in heavily stigmatizing observations like these, I know. But healthy Americans cannot, in good conscience, leave that stigmatization unlaid, and allow these 'Brave New World' degenerations of our common culture to continue unchecked.

Denounce this madness, and all those who defend and encourage it.

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.

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...

Going To War For Globalism

Davos elites would rather push for war with Russia than admit that the multi-polar order has arrived.

by Dominic Sansone

This year’s premier gathering of world elites, the 2022 Davos World Economic Forum, concluded May 26. Topics of discussion included the climate crisis, global epidemic concerns, continued efforts to grow the prominence of ESG investing, and looming food shortages. One issue, however, far and away dominated the entire conference: the Russo-Ukrainian war and its centrality to the future of the international system.

“This war is really a turning point of history, and it will reshape our political and our economic landscape in the coming years,” stated WEF Founder Klaus Schwab.

“[Russian President Vladimir] Putin wants a return to a world order in which strength dictates what is right—in which freedom, determination and sovereignty are not for everyone,” German leader Olaf Scholz told Davos attendees. “We cannot allow Putin to win this war.”

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky’s call for “maximum sanctions,” a stipend for Kyiv of at least $5 billion per month, and the total expulsion of all Russian forces from Ukrainian territory brought the crowd to its feet.

Favorite target of conservative ire George Soros issued a call to arms for the champions of an international “open society.” In order to save civilization, the world community must “mobilize all our resources” in order to “defeat Putin as soon as possible.” Even climate change would have to take a back seat to the fight against Russia.

The ongoing war in Ukraine is undoubtedly horrific, and everyone of goodwill wants to see an end to the bloodshed as soon as possible. The committed focus on defeating Putin by those at Davos, however, is about more than virtue-signaling or moral posturing. It is even about more than leveraging the crisis to accelerate their goal of usurping power from national governments in isolated fields, like energy.

Rather, the real issue at stake in Ukraine is whether the future of international relations will involve the continued expansion of a transatlantic one-world government, or complete its transition back to a system predicated on the balance of power. War in Ukraine presents the global community with its most significant inflection point of the post-Cold War era. In this instance, Schwab’s analysis is entirely correct. Putin’s invasion of his neighbor has threatened to affirm not only that the national interest still dictates world affairs, but that it can also still be secured by force.

For the West, accepting that a peace settlement will require certain land concessions and security guarantees would equate to an admission that the balance of power is once again the central operating principle of international relations. It would also be definitive confirmation that the “multi-polar” order dreaded by globalists has definitively arrived. Conversely, however, Russia could fail to secure its gains in Ukraine due to regime change or escalated Western intervention. The ability to destroy the Putin administration through economic strangulation, militarily supplying its enemies, and fomenting civil unrest would subsequently establish the opposite principle: the concept of a sphere of influence would show itself defunct. An individual nation-state actor, despite being a hindrance, will have been proven incapable of permanently forestalling the continued expansion and consolidation of a transatlantic-based one-world governance system.

Short of major Western escalation, which would likely precipitate large-scale war, the latter will not happen. Putin will achieve his goals: at least part, if not the majority, of the Donbas region will remain autonomous, and will potentially even join the Russian federation; Crimea will continue to be controlled by Moscow; and Ukraine will not be a member of the E.U. anytime soon, let alone NATO. That caveat about Western escalation should not be easily dismissed, however. The hostile language ubiquitous at the WEF would require Western involvement significantly beyond its current level, and can’t be discounted as mere rhetoric.

Davos is the most accurate physical representation of the phrase “the powers that be” in our current age. What its high-powered attendees say is indicative of more than just their personal beliefs; often, as their beliefs go, so goes international policy. Such is the nature of having control over a civilization’s institutions, national resources, and financial capital.

Despite all evidence that Putin is a rational actor, the Ukraine crisis is exclusively filtered through a simplistic moral prism of good vs. evil. Countenancing the Russian president as a pragmatic international actor would be another inherent admission that the world has returned to a balance-of-power system. Instead, Putin has become in the elite imagination a caricature of opposition to one-world unity, the Voldemort to our Harry Potter. As a result, the path to escalation has been paved in the hearts and minds of Western audiences.

That is not to say that the sympathy of any particular individual for the suffering of Ukrainians is inauthentic, or that those individuals do not actually want a speedy resolution to the conflict. It is only to say that these elites see the emergence of their envisioned better world as threatened. The ways proposed at the WEF may often be misguided, but the goals are not necessarily malicious. And therein lies their danger.

The Davos mindset is not only dangerous because its proponents want to centralize power in their own hands and create a one-world technocracy of rule-by-expert; it is dangerous because they genuinely believe that all of that is for your own good, and that they know better than you what is in your best interest. Subsequently, they are also willing to make sacrifices for their goals on your behalf, whether you agree or not.

At the same time, the Davos set aggregates the negative externalities of a given operation or policy into borderless, boundless phenomena like climate change or “equity.” The inevitable blurring of the line between “social” and “science” that takes place when viewing externalities at such a scale makes it difficult to concretely measure an operation’s impact on any particular community, or even to define the community in question.

A NICE, THOUGHTFUL AND DETAILED OBSERVATION by Dominic Sansone, to which everyone should pay attention. The primary message, in my mind, is that no one should let any agenda of the "Davos crowd" have any influence or even recognition in American policy or politics.

Indeed, attendance at meetings of the "Davos crowd" or the like should be prohibited to anyone entrusted with a position of trust and honor in the USA. The interests of globalists are inherently at odds with those of America, whose fundamental operating principles are the minimizing and decentralization of state power and the maximizing of individual liberty through the securing of natural, unalienable rights. Both are antithetical to any form of "globalization".

But as Sansone observes, the Biden hobgoblin-floggers and Ukraine grifters are working the Davos agenda, inevitably at the expense of American interests. This needs hardly be explained in any detail. The supply shortages of gas and food and much else-- all artificially aggravated in service to the "climate change" hobgoblin-- bring this assault on Americans into sharp focus for everyone suffering from them (even while those upper-class adherents of the Davos agenda "new world order" notice none of these ill effects at all).

I doubt that we will soon manage-- either as a matter of law or in practice-- to keep American politicians and those who influence politicians from sharing or even pursuing world government ambitions. However, we CAN deny those politicians the resources needed to effect their alien agenda of disempowering American citizens and subordinating them to globalism.

One simple act by each individual American will do the trick, and it needs no approval or 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 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..."

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.

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...

Heller', the US Supreme Court admits for the first time in decades that the Second Amendment prohibits interference with Americans' possession and ownership of firearms by the federal government (although in a decision made quirky and somewhat misleading in its character by the fact that in this case the federal government involvement was in its persona as a municipal authority, rather than more broadly).

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."

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.
