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.

A "Right To Abortion" Is NOT A "Right To Kill An Unborn Child" (Or Fetus, Or Whatever Label You Prefer...)

Strange to hear, I know, but a legal fact, nonetheless.

THROUGHOUT THE DECADES SINCE THE ROE V. WADE DECISION, the two sides which squared off over the issue of abortion became so rigid with emotional and political investment in their positions that a very key aspect of the matter-- the real legal meaning of abortion, and its implications-- has fallen into the cracks. It never should have done so, but especially now, with Roe undone, and battles arising in various states over whether their Constitutions secure a "right to abortion", this very important matter belongs center stage in our conversation.

The fact is, "abortion" (as it relates to a pregnancy) just means, "end the pregnancy". By no means does it also, or inherently, or even at all mean, "end the life of the unborn child".

A "right to abortion", even if "found" in a state Constitution or enacted by a legislature, is a right to cease carrying a child in the womb-- thus, ending the pregnancy, period. But just as your right to expel a trespasser from your front lawn doesn't equate to a right to summarily execute that trespasser (even if doing so would be the most convenient solution for you), so, too, a right to expel an unwanted child from the womb is not a right to do so violently, much less fatally.

A woman may have a right to terminate a pregnancy. But she has no right to terminate a baby (whether born or unborn).

CHECK ANY STATE LAW AT ISSUE and check any judicial ruling at issue by which Constitutional "rights to abortions" are found. See how they're worded.

If an explicit "right" to kill the unwanted child is not articulated, but only a "right to abort", then that law or ruling does not even purport to legalize killing a baby (or fetus, or whatever).

If, on the other hand, a "right" to kill an unwanted child is explicitly articulated (as unlikely as I think that is), the monster responsible should be immediately impeached and ejected from civilized society, of course.

But more to the point, that law or ruling should promptly be challenged on the basis of such language, because if not necessitated by life-threatening physical threat to the mother (in which case no law or judicial support is relevant or needed), such a killing is plainly indefensible and cannot be a "right". Additionally, the principles of law require that a solution to any valid claim of one party (a right to be free of an unwanted pregnancy) which has an adverse impact on any other person (here, the baby, as well as, in many cases, the father) must be made as minimal in its impact as possible.

NOW, I KNOW THIS ALL WILL STRIKE MANY as facetious. After all, we all know that what is meant to be communicated (or not denied) by the phrase "right to abortion" in the various laws and rulings in which it appears is that it's okay for a mother to deliberately kill an unborn baby. (And we all know that as a practical matter, even gently removing a baby from the womb before a certain point in a pregnancy will inevitably result in its death).

But again, unless "it's okay for a mother to deliberately kill an unborn baby" is explicitly said, it is NOT what the law or ruling permits (even if it DOES permit the inevitably fatal removal of a child from a womb early in a pregnancy).

And if anybody wants to contest the assertion, they should be made to expressly say that deliberately killing the child is what they are after, and that a "right" to do so is how the phrase "right to abortion" is to be understood. I don't think too many will stoop to such an expression, or be able to successfully defend it.

FINALLY, LET ME URGE EVERYONE TO take these observations very seriously. The abortion issue is a big deal, and remains one even after the Dodd ruling by the Supreme Court. It is also going to be a factor in the upcoming mid-term elections.

Send this article (permalinked here) to every candidate running for office this autumn, and all incumbents not already shown to be bereft of honesty on this subject or contemptuous of the rule of law. Send it to every honest city, county and state prosecutor and judge, and to every pro-life organization and journalist.

The bad guys have enjoyed control of the debate, by controlling the terms of the debate, for far too long. That must and can be changed.

In every debate or ad in which this matter arises or is addressed, the good guys and the good cause could benefit from a relentless pointing out that a "right to an abortion" is NOT a "right to kill an unborn child". Likewise, the good guys and the good cause could benefit from relentlessly requiring opponents or adverse interviewers to replace their euphemistic "right to choose" or "right to an abortion" with "right to kill an unborn child", if that's what they really mean.

On the other hand, the good guys and the good cause could benefit very much from inducing those on the other side to declare their understanding of abortion to NOT include a "right" to deliberately kill a child.

Spread this article around. Help make these good things happen.

(An earlier version of this argument, discussing in some depth how its widespread adoption would play out, can be found-- and shared-- at this link.)

***

WHILE WE'RE ON THE SUBJECT of abortion, I'd like to briefly remind everyone (or point out to those too young to remember America before Roe) that the absence of abortion availability produces solid social benefits.

In the absence of abortion availability, unmarried women are strongly incentivized to chastity before marriage and, because of the other powerful incentive in play, to therefore comport themselves so as to be attractive prospects for marital consideration by marriage-worthy men. This means developing and displaying all forms of good character and all the socially-positive aspects thereof, including being a loving spouse, cultivating instincts, habits and practices of protection, loyalty and self-sacrifice on behalf of her family, and supporting public policies based on a long view into the future, rather than those grounded in selfish and immediate gratifications.

Men are compelled to chastity before marriage, and, because of the other powerful incentive in play, to therefore comport themselves so as to be viable prospects for marital consideration by marriage-worthy women. This means developing and displaying all forms of good character and all the socially-positive aspects thereof, including being a loving spouse, cultivating instincts, habits and practices of protection, loyalty and self-sacrifice on behalf of his family, and supporting public policies based on a long view into the future, rather than those grounded in selfish and immediate gratifications.

Infidelity bears a much greater risk of exposure, and so, is discouraged, or if not, is conducted with strict care to avoid conception. The result is either less infidelity or fewer unintended children-- both are positive outcomes.

None of this is to say that an absence of institutionalized abortion results in an automatic heaven on earth, of course. But while with or without institutionalized abortion much bad will remain in the world, in its absence the benefits of which I speak are added to the mix, to one degree or another.

America, I think, sorely needs those benefits.

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

-Proverbs 25:26

Let's Celebrate Some Victories By The Good Guys!

...and push back some of the darkness.

ONE OF THE MOST IMPORTANT ASPECTS of the system of government established by America's Founders and Framers is its discipline over the federal government's access to resources. This discipline is imposed in large part by two key factors relating to each of the classes of taxation permitted under the US Constitution.

One of those factors is that all capitations and other direct taxes are made very politically-sensitive in their imposition (and effectively restricted to no more than can be borne by the poorest states) via the apportionment mechanism. The other disciplining factor is that all other permitted taxes are indirect imposts, excises and duties. Such taxes are subject to the control of individual citizens, each of whom decides how much engagement in excise-taxable activity will be undertaken, if any (a discipline that extends to the several states, insofar as they participate in income taxation).

As Hamilton put it in Federalist 21:

"Imposts, excises, and, in general, all duties upon articles of consumption, may be compared to a fluid, which will, in time, find its level with the means of paying them. The amount to be contributed by each citizen will in a degree be at his own option, and can be regulated by an attention to his resources."

It is by virtue of this disciplinary structure that the United States can be kept secure on the sovereign people's leash-- bound down from mischief, as Jefferson put it, by the chains of the Constitution. Today, we're going to celebrate a new batch of American patriots who are doing this critically-important work.

Danny Price

DANNY, SON OF THE EXCELLENT Roe Price, shares his debut victories today, by which he reclaims everything withheld from him and turned over to Missouri on the mistaken and rebutted notion that Danny's economic activities during 2019, 2020 and 2021 had been of a taxable character (with a little interest added on to the 2021 refund):

2019 (secured by way of this filing)

2020 (secured by way of this filing)

...and 2021 (secured by way of this filing)

WELL DONE, DANNY!

***

Ryan Price

RYAN PRICE, DANNY'S BROTHER, also shares a debut victory in enforcing the law on his servant government:

Here is the filing that secured this refund victory (to which interest has been added due to the refund being slow to issue).

WELL DONE, RYAN!

***

Bob Ciforelli

BOB SHARES A FINE NEW victory recovering everything taken from him and given over to Maine during 2020, by way of this filing:

WELL DONE, BOB!

***

Tyler & Amizero O'Donnell

TYLER & AMIZERO SHARE DEBUT VICTORIES today. These victories were secured a month apart, in May and June of 2022, despite one being for 2018 and the other for 2021. Here is the 2021 victory, from North Carolina, secured by way of this filing:

And here is the victory for 2018, from New York and secured with this filing, which the state very courteously increased due to noticing and adjusting for something Tyler & Amizero had overlooked when doing their filing, as shown in these adjustment notice documents:

WELL DONE, TYLER & AMIZERO!

***

Joel & Valerie Bliss

JOEL & VALERIE ALSO SHARE A DEBUT VICTORY in upholding the law today, this one from the feds, returning everything withheld during 2020, plus interest, on this filing:

WELL DONE, JOEL & VALERIE!

***

WELL DONE, EVERYONE!

HATS VERY MUCH OFF to Danny, Ryan, Bob, Tyler & Amizero, and Joel & Valerie! Their great victories join those of the tens of thousands of other awakened and activated Americans represented here, and constitute more critical steps toward the restoration of the Founders republic and the true rule of law. Their great activism and outreach drive everything forward.

Btw, YOUR victories could be posted, too!

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

That's all there is to it!

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

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

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

-United States Supreme Court Justice Robert H. Jackson

 

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

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.

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...

White Slaves And Other Inconvenient Historical Facts

by Matt Walsh

 

 

...now proceed to the afterword below...

 

Afterword

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

-Voltaire

MATT WALSH DOES A GREAT JOB summarizing the historical reality about slavery as a world-wide, and thousands-of-years-pervasive institution. And he does so for the right reason, having recognized the pernicious character and effects of endless and deepening race-hustling and guilt-mongering that has long-since eaten away much of what was once American harmony and tranquility.

It may be hard for younger Americans, and those with poor memories, to realize just how much has been lost to the deliberate, nihilistic and corrosive bile spewed upon us all over the last ten years or so by way of utterly dishonest and agenda-driven propaganda like "The 1619 Project" and every purveyor of "Critical Race Theory" infesting our schools and other public and even private institutions. The damage is vast and deep and deadly.

Corrective efforts like those undertaken by Walsh in the video above are welcome and important.

Indeed, I began this year's newsletters with an "Other Voices" sharing commentary by George Will on the subject of the "1619" attack. I follow Will's comments up in my "Afterword" with excerpts from the 1962 Encyclopedia Brittanica laying out the inconvenient truth that the African slave trade exploited by those bringing slaves to the Americas in the 17th and 18th centuries involved Africans enslaved by other Africans, who were then sold to traders who brought them here (and elsewhere). I recommend a look at those authoritative sources-- find Will's article and my afterword with the Brittanica articles here.

The truth is, America is the hero of the slavery story. America was conceived and established under principles inherently antithetical to slavery. Those principles worked (coincidentally with similar concurrent but uncoordinated efforts by Great Britain, another major white European ancestry power) over the course of a mere few decades to bring about the collapse of slavery not only in America itself but throughout the better part of the world where previously it had been ensconced for all of recorded history and doubtless deep into unrecorded history.

THE PROBLEM OF SLAVERY TODAY is in the pervasive disinformation on the subject churned out by malefactors as described above and deployed as a weapon against American stability. This assault is accomplished by exploiting the consolidation of impressionable young minds into government schools where propaganda can be delivered and embedded wholesale and without hindrance, and by exploiting the capture of mainstream media organs by the state, which uses those media organs for the same ends against the adult population.

It should go without saying that among other responses, mature and well-meaning Americans should cease to volunteer the resources by which these destructive propagandistic efforts are made possible. It is, I do not hesitate to say, the civic duty of all good Americans to do so.

Instead, we need to starve the eight-hundred pound Leviathan state which is being manipulated against us 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...

Illuminating anniversaries of this week:

August 16- In 1780, the British defeat the revolutionary Americans at Camden, South Carolina.  In 1841, John Tyler vetoes a bill attempting to re-establish the Second Bank of the United States (which had been de-funded 8 years prior by Andrew Jackson).  Hamiltonians rioted, but to no avail.  In 1954, the 3.5-million-word IRC of 1954 replaces the far more transparent 1939 version as the official prima facie evidence of the underlying revenue laws of the United States.  In 1955, yours truly is born (alright, not such a significant anniversary, but what the heck...).  In 1977, Elvis Presley dies from a drug overdose.  In 2010, China becomes the world's second-largest economy.

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...

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.
