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.

What A REAL "Existential Threat" Looks Like

A picture is worth a thousand words...but only if it's being seen.

MANY OF THOSE READING THIS PAGE arrive at the articles directly by way of the links provided in the notification emails, forum posts and GAB posts I send out announcing each fresh newsletter. Those same folks often will not ever make it to the actual top of the page where each edition begins with a graphic I think relevant to current events at the time of publication.

Because of the dynamic thus described, and because I see no evidence of any appropriate uptick in efforts by those already CtC-educated to enlighten others to the individual-empowering, state-restraining truth about the income tax, it occurs to me that folks arriving here from the posted notifications have missed the rather important opening graphic that has been featured for a number of months now:

This conclusion troubles me considerably.

FOR FIVE MONTHS NOW, resources yielded to the nutcases by victims of the "ignorance tax" have facilitated the insanely reckless escalation of provocations of a very robustly nuclear-equipped Russia. More specifically and relevantly, a Russia which possesses a very distinct, and even dramatic-- but also very temporary-- technological advantage in warhead delivery by way of its hypersonic missile systems (and is thus prone to a "use it or lose it" calculation under appropriate circumstances).

This escalation of hostile behavior-- on the military front, by way of weapons and intel supplied to the neo-Nazi, coup-installed regime in Kiev; on the propaganda front, by way of the relentless one-sided and almost entirely false information spin from the mockingbird media; on the economic front by way of cringe-worthily-hypocritical (and backfiring) "sanctions"; and on the diplomatic-political? front by encouraging provocations from others-- is relentlessly and substantially raising the temperature of the pot in which the Russian frog sits. When that frog decides it must jump out, it will do so by substantially raising the temperature of the United States (and elsewhere).

Allowing these grossly corrupt and hypocritical false-narrative-fueled provocations to continue is madness of the most serious sort, from which Americans are already suffering considerable adverse consequences (both insofar as the Ukraine situation is used to excuse the implementation of the "Green New Deal" and other bad and destructive policies and by way of of real disruptions to world trade, most notably in fertilizer and other agricultural inputs and products). Waiting in the wings is the risk of annihilation.

This madness is a true existential threat, and it is facilitated by the ignorant acquiescence of American men and women who are simply unaware that the law allows them to withhold their support and reduce the nutcases to gasping for air.

Please, everyone, get vocal and vigorous. SEND THIS SIMPLE WAKE-UP CALL AROUND LIKE YOUR LIFE DEPENDS ON IT.

Because it very well might.

"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

A Showcase Of Today's Republican Political Spectrum

...and a window into one of the very important contests in this upcoming mid-term election.

EVERY UPCOMING MID-TERM ELECTION CONTEST is important. But the top-of-the-ticket state-office contests in Michigan are particularly so.

Like only a few others, Michigan is a large-population swing state. It was one of five particularly targeted for massive vote fraud in the 2020 election (as shown in the powerful documentary exposé, '2000 Mules', among other compelling bodies of evidence, none of which-- contrary to the propagandistic spin of Democrats and fellow-travelling voices in the media, have ever been examined in any court proceeding).

This November, Governor Gretchen Whitmer, Attorney General Dana Nessel and Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson will all face challengers. Whitmer is famous for having jumped early, hard and persistently on the "total lockdown" bandwagon, despite being prohibited from doing so by Michigan's Constitution. She even continued with the same measures and policies after Michigan's Supreme Court expressly held her to be in violation of the Constitution.

Whitmer is also famous for having seeded Michigan nursing homes with persons infected with respiratory diseases, resulting in a so-far-still-unknown number of deaths self-servingly attributed to COVID-19.

Dana Nessel is most recently famous for having declared that every public elementary school should suffer drag-queen events. She also played her part in the COVID-coup, supporting Whitmer's manifestly invalid "work-around" of the Michigan Supreme Court ruling on her COVID measures of simply having the same prohibited edicts issued by Whitmer's subordinate public-health director and threatening and otherwise harassing everyone seeking to gather and present evidence of the widespread vote fraud conducted in Democrat-stronghold precincts.

Jocelyn Benson is famous for having illegally instructed city clerks throughout Michigan to disregard voter signature-verification requirements required by Michigan law, as found in March, 2021 by the Michigan Court of Claims.

In short, Whitmer, Nessel and Benson are very bad people, and all need to be replaced.

THE REPUBLICAN CHOICES to replace Dana Nessel and Jocelyn Benson have already been determined, by state party vote in convention. The challenger to Gretchen Whitmer will be determined in the August 2nd primary. Current ballot choices are Ryan Kelley, Garret Soldano, Kevin Rinke, Tudor Dixon and Ralph Rebandt.

Each of these gubernatorial prospects have participated in several debates. Unfortunately, these debates have been only regionally broadcast, and with little advance notice and limited opportunity to be viewed live either in person or via a streaming service.

I'm guessing many Michigan readers have missed the debates and would like the opportunity to get a good feel for the pluses and minuses of each of these candidates, especially in the sense of how each would faithfully represent a principled constituency and how each would fare in upcoming debates with Whitmer. Accordingly, I have located, and posted below, YouTube videos of debates conducted June 30th and July 6th (in the latter of which Ralph Rebandt does not appear due to poll numbers too low to qualify).

Those in other states might still find these debates of interest, and I recommend them to everyone. In this field of candidates we have representation of a wide spectrum of Republican political demeanors, from the DeVos-family-supported Tudor Dixon through the multi-millionaire Kevin Rinke to the accused January 6 attendee and anti-lockdown, anti election-fraud firebrand Ryan Kelley.

Enjoy!

June 30th

July 6th

Btw, additional debates prior to the primary will be held July 20th and 27th.

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."

-United States Supreme Court Justice Robert H. Jackson

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...

Congress Showers The Pentagon With Cash While Americans Pinch Pennies

Lawmakers this week will rubber stamp a bill authorizing tens of billions more to the Defense Department that it didn’t even ask for.

by Ben Freeman and Faezeh Fathizadeh

Gas prices are at an all-time high. Rent prices have set records for the last 13 months straight. Inflation is increasing so sharply that even the cost of basic utilities has risen by nearly 30 percent in the last 12 months. There are growing fears that the economy is poised to fall into recession.

What is Congress doing as a growing chorus of Americans think these and other economic issues are the most important problems facing the nation today? They’re planning to give military contractors the biggest payday they’ve ever seen.

This week, at a time when Americans are fighting to keep roofs over their heads and feed their families, Congress’s plan is to authorize a record-setting $838.8 billion in spending, not to the American people, but to the Pentagon. As happens nearly every year, more than half of this sum will likely go to Pentagon contractors, whose CEOs make tens-of-millions of dollars while telling their shareholders that war and rising global tensions are good for business.

Yet this week Congress is on track to give the Pentagon $37 billion more than the military even asked for. Instead of funding pork-barrel projects across the country -— such as the Littoral Combat Ship, known in U.S. Navy circles as the “little crappy ship” that reportedly can’t travel half its maximum speed without cracking its hull — Congress could use this money to pay for a variety of things Americans desperately need right now, like school lunches, affordable housing, and utility assistance programs.

Even just lowering taxes by $37 billion or giving this money directly to the American people could put more than $100 in the pocket of every single American at a time when they desperately need it.

Not only would spending in such ways benefit the individuals and communities that receive them, it would also help revitalize the U.S. economy — and make it more equitable to boot. As has been well documented, defense spending is one of the least economically productive ways the government can spend its money. Spending on education, health care, and lowering taxes, for example, have all been shown to create more — and higher paying — jobs.

In addition to the economic costs of funneling ever more money into the Pentagon, contractors that win the lion’s share of the Pentagon pie have left less and less money for the actual members of the U.S. military. Our troops and their families are now facing the same problems of affordable housing and inflation that plague the rest of the nation, all while doing their part to defend the country. As our colleague, Tevah Gevelber, documented in Responsible Statecraft last month, increases in rents and inflation have forced many military families to move further and further away from bases and, in some cases, to live paycheck to paycheck.

With military families and other hard-working Americans struggling to make ends meet, why is Congress poised to give government contractors the biggest taxpayer-funded payday they’ve ever received? In short, Pentagon contractors invest heavily in efforts to get more taxpayer money. They have spread their influence and money around to lobbyists, PR firms, and think tanks to ensure that a rising defense budget lifts all boats … inside the Beltway.

The defense sector is also one of the top spenders on campaign contributions to members of Congress, particularly to those lawmakers with the greatest sway over the defense budget. In fact, members of the House Armed Services Committee who last month approved the defense bill the House will vote on this week have already received more than $3.25 million in campaign contributions from defense contractors in just the current election cycle, according to campaign finance data compiled by OpenSecrets.

Afterword

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

-Voltaire

I NEED HARDLY POINT OUT that it is largely the insane bellicosity toward Russia-- rationalized by the pretext of Russia's (entirely expected and intended) response to the very deliberate and sustained provocations made against her by US activities in Ukraine since late 2013-- that fuels the current excesses in the Pentagon's budget. As noted in the lead article today, that insane bellicosity is not only mendaciously grounded and sustained, but also carries the risk of truly dire consequences far beyond the mere decades-old fleecing of the American people.

Also as noted in the lead article of this edition, the threats and harms of which we speak arise from one simple factor-- the enormous resources handed over to the federal government. Those resources pay for all of Washington's bad behavior, and also finance the politically-driven control of information and inquiry, resulting in a largely ignorant or misinformed population, vulnerable to manipulation.

There is an answer, of course-- withhold from the state the resources by which these evils are accomplished. Starve the eight-hundred pound gorilla back down to the more-or-less safe and tolerable size that allowed Americans to become the most prosperous and free people the world has ever seen, before the wealth thus produced began to be bled away to fuel the growth of Leviathan with the successful imposition of the ignorance tax scheme in the early 1940s.

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..."

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...

Notes And Tips For Educated Filers

Illuminating Anniversaries of this week:

July 20- In 1903, Ford Motor Co. ships its first car.  In 1945, Congress ratifies the Bretton Woods agreement, making the U.S. dollar (still redeemable on demand in gold for foreign holders at $35 to the ounce) the reserve currency of the modern world.  In 2003, two bombs explode outside a tax office in Nice, France.  In 2012, a gunman opens fire in a theater in Aurora, Colorado during a showing of 'The Dark Knight Rises', killing 12 and injuring 58.  The theater chosen was the only one in the area with a posted policy prohibiting weapons, thereby ensuring that unlike people in other theaters in the area, several of which were closer to the gunman's home, and were showing the same film, the victims of the attack would be unable to defend themselves. (The gunman entered through an emergency exit, thus evading the detection of his weapons.)  In 2015, The United States abandoned its 50-year-long campaign to oust the government of Fidel Castro from Cuba by embargo, a policy which trampled on the rights of Americans and impoverished generations of Cubans, all for nothing (actually, not quite for nothing-- the policy prevented the kind of engagement between Cubans and Americans that would have prompted organic change within Cuba and almost certainly helped perpetuate the Castro regime for many more years then it would have otherwise lasted).

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 22- In 1937, the Senate votes down FDR's scheme to add more justices to the U.S. Supreme Court in order to start getting favorable rulings on New Deal legislation after having his socialist programs ruled unconstitutional over and over.  (Roosevelt soon replaced enough retiring justices with his own men to start getting more congenial readings of the "living Constitution" anyway...)  In 2011, a terrorist bombing of government offices and shooting attack on schoolchildren is committed in Norway by a man apparently filled with a mindless hatred of Muslims.

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.
