"There are two distinct classes of men...those who pay taxes and those who receive and live upon taxes."

-Thomas Paine

 

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

Illuminating anniversaries of this week:

July 4- In 1776, the Declaration of Independence is formally adopted by the Second Continental Congress.  In 1826, Thomas Jefferson and John Adams both pass from among us.  In 1845, Henry David Thoreau begins his two-year sojourn at Walden Pond.  In 1862, Lewis Carroll spins a yarn for Alice Liddell.  In 1934, the engineering for an atomic bomb is patented by Leo Szilard.  In 1946, 48 years after the United States claimed ownership of the Philippines and crushed resistance to its occupation at the cost of a million dead Filipinos, the country is granted independence.

 

Anniversaries of interest for each day of this week will be found throughout the newsletter below.

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.

It's Declaration Day

...and this is not mere rhetoric.

AS LONG-TIME READERS OF THESE PAGES are aware, it is my tradition at this time of the year (and often at the beginning of a new year) to post the admittedly rather oratorical observations and admonitions related to Declaration Day which follow. What I fear that too few understand is that these stirring words are not offered as entertainment. Nor are they a theatrical pose.

Similarly, these observations and admonitions that follow are not offered in order to inspire noble thoughts and day dreams with which to occupy one's mind while grilling Fourth of July burgers and dogs, or while watching firework displays.

They are, rather, meant to inspire serious recognition of unsettling truths about our current American situation and trajectory and resolute corrective action.

They are, rather, meant to remind us that those firework displays are reenactments of deadly-serious battles that had to be fought, and real sacrifices that had to be made, in order to bless this land and those fortunate enough to live in it with liberty and the rule of law, and that those blessings do not sustain themselves. Instead, those blessings must be defended and nourished and celebrated every day-- still by battles and sacrifices-- in order to preserve them in the face of constant, sophisticated attack by their enemies.

SO, ON THIS FOURTH OF JULY, whether seeing them for the first time or the twentieth, please read the words that follow with all the foregoing in mind. Recognize that right now, more than at any time in our American history, the precious and fragile gifts of liberty and the rule of law bequeathed to us at enormous expense by our noble ancestors are on the very edge of extinction, and it is right now that they must be upheld and defended, by YOU.

Recognize, too, that mere political action-- always the easy pretended solution-- will not suffice. As Josef Stalin reportedly remarked while fastening in place his iron tyranny of a Russian people misled into complacency and cooperation by faith in their ideological exceptionalism and the virtues of their institutions, "I don't care who votes, as long as I get to count the votes."*

Today's American version of incipient fascism has that same sly smirk about voting now in the mix, but also strong streaks of it's close cousin, "I don't care who gets to write the laws, as long as I get to decide what they mean and how to enforce them," coupled with an unprecedented and perilous control of public perception and dialogue by those same enemies of our American heritage.

If we want real freedom-- the kind embodying the principles laid out in the Declaration of Independence-- to survive for ourselves and our children, we all need to starve the rampaging beast that despises those principles and which is sustained by our individual timidity in the face of its self-serving and lawless demands.

Now, let's get to those (hopefully) stirring and inspiring words:

DECLARATION DAY. That is,

  • "NO MORE PARALYSIS Day"

  • "NO MORE DENIAL Day"

  • "NO MORE, "I DON'T DARE..." Day"

  • "NO MORE, "THE BAD MEN WILL NOTICE ME SO I'D BETTER NOT!" Day"

  • "NO MORE, "I'LL WAIT FOR SOMEONE ELSE TO GO FIRST..." Day"

In short, here we are at,

  • "GET OFF YOUR ASS Day"

  • "GET LOUD AND PROUD AND UN-COWED Day"

I'm talking about,

  • "DON'T STOP 'TIL YOU'VE GOT LIBERTY AND THE RULE OF LAW Day"

  • "FACE THE FACTS Day"

  • "NO TIME TO RELAX Day"...

More than anything, we've just had "PUT ASIDE DELUSIONS Day" That's what the original "Declaration day" was all about. It was the day the American colonists finally acknowledged that the people they had been entreating to respect their rights actually didn't want them to have their rights.

It was the day the American colonists finally acknowledged that the government operatives they had been petitioning and politicking and lobbying and arguing with weren't misled or mistaken or suffering from misunderstanding, needing only to have things explained a bit better, or argued a bit more authoritatively. Instead, as the colonists realized and finally admitted by way of the Declaration, those operatives were their competitors. Those operatives were the colonists' opponents. Efforts to persuade them were pointless-- they admitted to no limits on their power and had no interest in curbing its abuse, which was being practiced for their benefit.

IT WAS HARD for the colonists to reach that epiphany about their government. Because states exercise power (and partly also because they maintain an elaborate apologia dedicated to justifying that exercise as being for the good of the citizenry, or at least the way things must or are supposed to be), they come to be viewed as virtual parents in the hind-brains of those subject to that power. It is very hard for people to recognize and acknowledge that actual Mom and Dad are bad people. It is nearly as hard for people to recognize that the state under the influence of which they have been raised is corrupt and malicious.

But of course, sometimes Mom and Dad are indeed bad, and states usually are. And while Mom and Dad can and often do become remorseful, and proceed to reform and redemption, states are institutionally-incapable of remorse. The only remedy against a bad state is taking away its power. Eventually, after wasting all that time and effort on petitioning, politicking, lobbying and arguing, the American colonists admitted this truth on Declaration Day and said, "No more talking-- it's time for walking!"

Bless them for abandoning their child-like view of the state and becoming grown-ups at last.

IT REMAINS TO BE SEEN if we modern Americans are equally deserving of blessings. We should be up to the task; after all, we have a much easier row to hoe than the colonists did.

While we, too, must adopt a grown-up understanding of the true character of the dangerous servant against which we have been wisely warned, our state is already bound down by the written law, thanks to the blood and sacrifices of our ancestors. All we have to do is recognize that the state is constantly struggling to escape any limitations placed upon it by that law, and to suppress and marginalize anyone revealing its bad behavior and anything showing how it can be put back into its chains.

Particularly, we have to recognize that the biggest and most important limitation put upon the state concerns its ability to take resources from individual citizens for its own use. It's this simple-- the one who controls the disposition of property is the one in charge.

Because it is so important, for decades the United States has been engaged in the cultivation and exploitation of myths about what limitations are placed upon it in regard to resource acquisition. Sadly, for most of those decades most Americans have fallen for the fictions.

Chief among these state-serving, people-harming myths is the truly absurd proposition that our grandparents amended the Constitution in 1913 to authorize the state's exploitation of their resources at its will, in defiance and rejection of the previous tax-limiting Constitutional rules under which the American people had become the freest and most prosperous in the history of the world.

THIS IS A MYTH! It never happened, and even the premier organs of the state itself have said so endlessly-- but quietly, so as to preserve the on-the-books harmony of the law while allowing the state (and its clients and cronies) to ruthlessly exploit anyone who doesn't know to look and remains in ignorance.

See the proof that this is a myth, here. Read the 1916 Cornell and Harvard Law Review articles on the Supreme Court's unanimous conclusions about the Sixteenth Amendment. See what Department of Treasury experts admit about the income tax. See what the Supreme Court continues to say about the amendment and the tax over the decades. Learn the real history of the tax and its antecedents.

See what the tax really falls upon and how it really works in application (and how and why it may have been misapplied to you in the past). See what those who have learned the long-obscured truth about the income tax have been accomplishing since that truth was revealed in 2003.

Then go here and see how the state has been struggling to keep you from knowing any of this.

After you take these two enlightening little excursions, recognize that every single person or institution that would lose prestige, power or profits by acknowledging the truth about the tax can be expected to lie about the subject if queried. So will every interest that sees itself benefitting from the existence of a mammoth state (which might even include those who make their living complaining about the mammoth state, or the supposed evils of the income tax).

Every one of these persons and interests are today's equivalents of the invested promoters and defenders of the "divine right of kings" myth that kept people enthralled and exploited in the colonists' time.

But also recognize that because you now know the truth, the power is in your hands. The responsibility is, too.

Rise to deserve the blessings secured by America's Founders for their posterity.

Make this year's "Declaration Day" real by making it-- retroactively, if necessary-- a personal Declaration Day-- a day of resolution to act on behalf of liberty and the rule of law.

"Like a muddied stream or a polluted fountain is the righteous man who gives way before the wicked."

-Proverbs 25:26

 

"I am only one, but I am one. I cannot do everything, but I can do something. What I can do, I should do and, with the help of God, I will do."

-Everett Hale

 

"Power concedes nothing without a demand. It never did and it never will. Find out just what any people will quietly submit to and you have the exact measure of the injustice and wrong which will be imposed on them, and these will continue till they have been resisted with either words or blows, or with both. The limits of tyrants are prescribed by the endurance of those whom they suppress."

-Frederick Douglass

 

"A nation of sheep begets a government of wolves."

-Edward R. Murrow

 

"Be the change you want to see in the world."

-Mohandas Gandhi

 

*Before the last of the generation of Russians alive when Stalin purportedly made that remark had left the stage, the Russian people threw off the tyranny cemented in place for sixty years by the Georgian monster and his successors by simply saying beginning to say "No!" to the state, one by one, sometimes loudly and sometimes quietly.

I've long wondered if this inconvenient example of the power of "No!" underlies the relentless and increasingly strident demonization of Russia in certain quarters ever since its liberating transformation in the last years of the 20th Century...

A Couple Of Quick Comments On Current Topics Of Interest

...specifically, the anti-American character of EVs, and the illegality of punishing refusal to use "preferred pronouns".

LAST EDITION, I OPENED THE NEWSLETTER with a few words about the renewable nature of so-called "fossil fuels". This was prompted as a rebuttal for some of the misconceptions by which the adoption of electric vehicles (EVs) is being encouraged (along with even more insidious techniques such as artificially raising the price of gasoline by restricting the supply through executive actions such as shutting down pipelines and withholding drilling permits).

There's another point to make about the EV push: This technology involves a centralization-dynamic antithetical to liberty and the principles around which our American Constitutional and social structures are designed, and by which Americans became the most prosperous and most free people in world history (prior to the abandonment of the gold standard in monetary policy and the growth of the welfare/warfare state in the mid-20th Century).

OUR AMERICAN SYSTEM is designed to be, and remain, decentralized in every possible respect. The Founders and Framers were very conscious of the fact that centralization (also known as "consolidation") creates dangerous imbalances of power both in the marketplace and in politics and public institutions. They sought to ensure that everyone was equipped with the greatest possible ability to act agilely and independently in both realms.

Electric vehicles represent a dramatic move away from maximally-decentralized personal mobility, a fact illustrated by the devotion of $7.5bn from Biden's so-called "infrastructure" bill to the construction of 500,000 electric vehicle charging stations. Every one such station will be not only government-funded (and controlled in some respect), but will be supplied from quasi-governmental public utilities, inherently centralized and subject to easy imposition of fiats from the state in every respect.

Contrast that to the wholly-independent and self-financed retail gasoline industry, whose product availability is in the hands of individual, autonomous and enterprising entrepreneurs rather than bureaucrats and political interests.

(And just for fun, imagine the poor driver who runs out of juice on a dark country road a few miles short of the next charging station, and must drag an enormous battery, or thousands of feet of cable-- rather than a 7 lb. can of gasoline-- back to the car in order to get it to the station for a fill-up.)

ON A RELATED NOTE (and as the temperature in my neck of the woods heads for the 90s yet again), I have to wonder if the onset of "global warming" is really the right time to transition the generation of electrical power upon which effective air-conditioning depends to inherently unreliable sources like solar and wind...

BTW, see this piece by Donald W. Miller Jr., MD for a very accessible sketch of the real history and causes of "global warming".

HERE'S A CHALLENGE FOR EVERYONE: Explain to me the legal or moral difference between compelling a pretense of belief, or restraint from expressing disbelief, in a "transgender identity"-- such as by the use of "preferred pronouns", for instance-- and compelling a pretense of belief, or restraint from expressing disbelief, in "transubstantiation" (or any other religious or ideological dogma).

I can't see any difference, and I think by virtue of that fact any discrimination or other adverse consequence imposed on anyone for refusal to make such expressions or exercise such restraint in regard to the "transgendered" and the like in any workplace which is subject to state or federal civil rights laws is actionable.

Let the lawsuits begin!

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 fraudulent 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.

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...

How Sex Became Gender

The modern denial of biology undermines an essential part of the human story.

by Robert Lynch

Jim Gaffigan has this joke about a scientist who mistakes the male seahorse for the female and then stubbornly refuses to admit his mistake after learning that the one he’d called the male is pregnant. It’s a funny bit, but it hinges on a common misunderstanding that sex designations are arbitrary.

The biological definition of males and females is entirely based on the size of the sex cells, called gametes, that they produce. Males produce the smaller gametes and females produce the larger ones. When scientists discover a new sexually reproducing species, gamete size is how they determine the sexes. In humans, males release between 200 and 500 million tiny sperm in each ejaculation while females have a lifetime supply of around 400, much larger, eggs.

This initial asymmetry in gamete size may not seem like a big deal, but it leads to a whole cascade of evolutionary effects that result in diverging paths for each sex, which we call sexual selection. If male and female bothers you, call them little and big, but regardless of what you call them, this foundational cell-sized difference in gamete size has profound effects on both evolution and behavior.

Sexual reproduction that involves the union of gametes of different sizes is called anisogamy, and it sets the stage for phenotypic differences between males and females. Robert Trivers laid down the basic argument, which he later described in biblical terms (“the scales fell from my eyes”), in one of the most cited papers in biology, when he wrote “What governs the operation of sexual selection is the relative parental investment of the sexes in their offspring.” This fundamental insight provides the framework for understanding the emergence of sex differences across all sexually reproducing species.

Because male animals can produce millions of sperm cells quickly and cheaply, the main factor limiting male reproductive success is their ability to attract females, whereas the primary limiting factor for females, who, in humans, spend an additional nine months carrying the baby, is access to resources. The most reproductively successful men (e.g., Genghis Khan is likely to have had more than 16 million direct male descendants) can invest little and let the chips fall where they may, while the most successful women are restricted by the length of pregnancy.

By replacing “female” with “the sex that invests more in its offspring,” however, we can extract Trivers’s general argument, and one of the most falsifiable predictions in all of biology—the sex that invests more in its offspring will be more selective when choosing a mate, and the sex that invests less will compete over access to mates. Find a single species where the sex that invests less in offspring is choosier, and the entire theory is disproved. The brilliance of this insight is that it explains both the general rule and all of the exceptions. Because of the initial disparity in investment, females will usually be more selective in choosing mates. Trivers explained something that had puzzled evolutionary biologists ever since Darwin and also explained why the male seahorse, which really does get pregnant, is choosier, and the female seahorse is bigger.

The assertion that male and female is an arbitrary classification is false on every level. Not only does it confuse primary sexual characteristics (i.e., the reproductive organs) which are unambiguously male or female at birth 99.8 percent of the time with secondary sexual characteristics (e.g., more hair on the faces of men or larger breasts in women), it ignores the very definition of biological sex. Although much has been made of the fact that sex differences in body size, ornamental features, hormonal profiles, behavior, and lots of other traits vary widely across species, that these differences are minimal or non-existent in some species, or that a small percentage of individuals, due to disorders of development, possess an anomalous mix of female and male traits, none of it undermines or challenges this basic distinction. Sex is binary. There is no third sex.

Afterword

"Those who can make you believe absurdities can make you commit atrocities."

-Voltaire

ROBERT LYNCH HAS FURNISHED US with a great refresher on the simple realities of biology, a scientific discipline currently under sustained attack by the sort of demented, nihilistic forces once remarked upon in a popular film of a few years back as simply wanting to watch the world burn. I share my own sense of these monsters in this article from last edition.

Some illuminating observations about the technical and social dynamics by which the contagion of these delusional enemies of reality is spread can be found in this excellent piece by Jared Eckert. An excellent and importantly-disquieting sense of the depth of the depravity involved in these attacks can be had by way of Matt Walsh's recent film, 'What is a Woman' (97% audience enthusiasm on Rotten Tomatoes).

AS I ALLUDED-TO ABOVE, "transgender" insanity is threatening the health and integrity of biology as a science. This results primarily from the huge and alternative-eclipsing footprint of tax-funded government grants to research and educational institutions which reward only "research" and "scholarly" output consistent with the ascendant political agenda.

That is, either see that your "research" and "scholarship" supports the "trans" contrivances (and other politically-correct positions), or say goodbye to funding.

The corrosive effect of this dynamic on the quality (or even basic validity) of the affected body of work and the discipline in which it dominates is obvious. And all fields of study are potentially subject to this ruinous effect-- think "climate science", for example, or epidemiology for a couple of examples. How about law?

The threat of which we speak arises from one simple factor-- the enormous resources handed over to the federal government which can be turned into oppressive weapons taking politically-driven control of information and inquiry, with the result being an ignorant or misinformed population, vulnerable to manipulation, and an increasingly incompetent technical sector being relied upon by all consumers-- public and private-- of what is supposed to be the best possible understanding of reality.

There is an answer, of course-- take from the state the resources by which independent research and scholarship are corroded and twisted to political ends. Starve the eight-hundred pound gorilla currently skewing research efforts into demented snark-hunts by which nonsense is "supported" down to its Constitutional dimensions by which no federal money is devoted to research grants at all, and let the true and unfettered spirit of inquiry rule, as it used to do for the most part throughout the first 150 years or so of American history.

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 learn all about this solution in this little two-page paper. 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.

Are You Ready For More Power?

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

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

 

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

 

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

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

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

PRO TIP: If I were the IRS and I wanted to discourage people from rebutting allegations that they had done things I can tax, and wanted to keep them from successfully reclaiming withheld or paid-in money, I would salt the "tax honesty" community with passionate-seeming "legal researchers" who would warn anyone whose ear they captured that filing a 1040 is a bad idea for one reason or another...

Illuminating Anniversaries of this week:

July 7- In 1863, The Union institutes a draft during the War Between The States-- exemptions are available for $100.  In 1898, Hawaii is annexed by the United States.  In 2005 four explosions occur in the British mass-transit system, duplicating in remarkably precise detail the storyline of a "training exercise" against possible "terrorism" being conducted in exactly the same locations at exactly the same times.  The event briefly raises Prime Minister Tony Blair's abysmal approval rating to it's highest point in two years, before it drops again back into the low 30s.

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.
