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.

Cognitive Inoculations Against Selected Misunderstandings, Misinformation And Madness

...on subjects including the draining of the Strategic Petroleum Reserve, "frivolous return penalty" fog, prison reform policies, spin-polling, sending Mitch McConnell packing, "domestic terrorism", immigration, and more.

AMERICA'S STRATEGIC PETROLEUM RESERVE doesn't exist to moderate gasoline pump prices, especially not in order to temporarily obscure rises in prices reflecting (invariably-government-caused) inflation until a mid-term election is safely rigged. The Strategic Petroleum Reserve exists in order to ensure that an immediate and secure supply of oil is on hand with which to fuel American tanks, mobile artillery, troop transports, fighter jets, battleships and bombers-- and to reliably maintain and deploy the infrastructure needed to build and equip more of the same-- in the event of war.

The Democrats in control in Washington, however, having grievously wounded the American economy over the last two years (and with much more damage waiting in the wings), have drained more than 165 million barrels from the reserve in order to conceal increases in the price of gas caused by their policies. This has dropped the reserve to its lowest level since 1984.

I'm not a particularly "hawkish" guy, but in light of the simultaneous, deliberate and ongoing destruction of American oil-production infrastructure, this crass political ploy by the Democrats is singularly irresponsible, and those who ARE "hawkish", or even just prudent, ought to be raising the roof and proposing articles of impeachment, right now.

"FRIVOLOUS RETURN PENALTIES" DON'T HINGE on whether a filer is or is not an "employee", or earned "wages", or anything of the sort. Briefly summarized, the relevant issues (which might also be called the "material facts") in a "Frivolous Return Penalty" assertion/contest are three:

1. Whether the penalty is asserted against an actual filed return (or purported return)-- rather than, for instance, a copy of a return sent to the agency as evidence of a previous filing;

2. Whether a targeted return lacks information sufficient for judging the substantial correctness of its self-assessment (as in missing numbers in places relevant places to the computation of the self-assessment) or contains information calling into question the substantial correctness of that self-assessment (as in having elements within it which contradict the self-assessment computation), and, IF either of these are true, bears evidence that such lack or such contradiction arises from the filer's embrace of a "position" listed on the Secretary of the Treasury's official list of penalty-qualified "frivolous positions" or from an intent to impede or delay the proper administration of the tax laws; and

3. Whether the penalty has been properly approved pursuant to 26 U.S.C. § 6751(b).

(BTW, let me make clear something misunderstood by many folks: There is no inherent legal relationship between a FRP assertion and the validity of a return. FRP assertions concern a special definition of "frivolous" meant to equip the IRS to extract a financial penalty whether a return is valid and the refund or other claims thereon are correct or not. For a return to be "frivolous" in the context of a FRP does not make it frivolous-- which, outside of the FRP context, means "without a basis in law"-- for purposes of processing or in regard to claims and declarations made thereon.)

For more on this subject, see this post. Then see this page-- along with linked pages therein.

***

"PRISON REFORM" IS A REFLECTION of a political impulse to deny or conceal that some people are simply sociopathic and predatory due to immersion in a defective subculture-- acknowledgement of which shines a harsh light on the relevant subculture; and to deny or conceal the embarrassing failure of prior political acts by those in power (or their fellow-travelling predecessors) such as those that have produced a tragic number of fatherless and often drug-addled Americans from the ranks of whom the predators emerge.

***

POLL RESULTS PUBLISHED WITHOUT including for inspection the complete questions asked and the complete details of the people surveyed must be assumed to be deceptive. Any pollster can arrive at push-propaganda-serving results by manipulating the survey sample or carefully designed questions to either steer or compel poll-takers to spinnable choices.

***

REPUBLICANS CAN DRAMATICALLY IMPROVE THEIR CHANCES of a "red wave" if their candidates uniformly tell Mitch McConnell and his ilk to shut up and go home, while coming out in lockstep opposition to one further dollar or word in support of Ukraine-- a dangerous, destabilizing, falsehood-grounded and morally-suspect project behind which no one in the vast majority of the American electorate stands.

Russia rescuing the ethnic Russian populations of the Donbas from Ukrainian neo-nazis is not our problem (if it is a problem at all). Nor do we have any valid stake in the well-being or security of the very belligerent beneficiaries of the 2014 Ukrainian coup currently occupying Kiev.

Besides we have need of all our resources here at home, and we especially need a restoration of stability in the world. Shoveling arms and money into Kiev just perpetuates a wide-reaching turmoil that would have otherwise ended months ago-- and with many fewer lives lost.

***

IT ISN'T RACISM to criticize or reject a film treatment, based on an older original story, into which "diversity" has been injected contrary to the original content. Such criticism is not of the thespians involved, nor of the idea of such "diverse" persons being suited to roles in film.

Rather, such criticism is of the contempt being shown by the creators of the new, adulterated work for the author or other original-work-creator whose work they have distorted in service to their own political agenda.

***

HAVE YOU EVER HEARD IT SAID that the definition of government is the entity with a monopoly on the use of force in a given area? Do you realize that this definition does not apply in America? No government entity has such a monopoly here.

By virtue of the Second Amendment (and corresponding provisions in state Constitutions), the People, constituting militias-- whether organized or not, and whether collectively or individually-- retain the Constitutionally-recognized authority to use force, including against governments themselves. See the details here.

***

WE ARE LATELY TOLD WITH GREAT PASSION that Americans who distrust the government are the biggest terror threat. This is said without any evidence of any related terrorist activity. So what can this mean?

It is simply this: Americans who distrust the government reveal and make known to the wider public the crimes and unauthorized, illegitimate acts of the government. This exposure raises a threat to the government in the form of a general anger and possible impulse amongst the American people at large to punish the malefactors.

It is that rising threat of punitive remediation that is deemed terrorist by those perps, much as members of more ordinary organized crime might view the FBI as a terrorist threat (when that agency is faithfully sticking to its mandate, anyway).

Likewise, the bleating by favored mentally-ill "communities" (i.e., the various subgroups of LGBTQ-whatever) that certain speech is violence. This bleating is an expression of the fact that by making known the despicable behavior of some of these folks (such as the grooming and chemical or surgical destruction of healthy, functional body parts of children, and their subjection to identity confusion and stress), speakers increase the likelihood that at some point someone (which is to say, the larger and saner society) is going to step up and forcibly halt the abuses and possibly punish the abusers.

I'D LIKE TO VISIT THE HOMES of all those who snidely criticize the very-politically-astute moves by Ron DeSantis and Greg Abbott to transfer foreign invaders from the states those gentlemen serve-- and where the invaders are not wanted-- to other states whose officials have encouraged and facilitated the invasion (but have avoided personal experience of its effects). These commentators take the positions that national borders are somehow illegitimate, and that characterizing those who cross them into a country of which they are not a citizen without permission to do so as "invaders" is wrong and bad.

So, I'd like to visit the homes of these folks. I'd set up my barbeque in their front yards-- or maybe their living rooms; and take a nice swim in their pools. Their pantry would become my pantry, and anyplace at all in their houses would be my bathroom.

After all, "borders" are a no-no, right?

Somehow I don't think these purists will keep singing that tune when it's THEIR borders being violated...

I urge all these smug and hypocritical pseudo-intellectuals to learn why immigration control is not only legal but wise, by reading this consideration of the issue. (And I hope they don't miss the legal analysis of the "birthright citizenship" fraud to which a link is provided at the end of that immigration article...)

DeSantis/Paul 2024!

THE OBJECT OF ALL the Democrat effort to stigmatize, if not criminalize, those questioning the legitimacy of the declared outcomes of the 2020 election is simple and deeply corrupt. That object is the discouragement of skeptical scrutiny of those outcomes because they cannot stand up to such scrutiny.

Any Republican who doesn't understand and acknowledge this obvious fact is too naive or too gutless to be worthy of his or her office.

***

THE US CONSTITUTION DOESN'T DELEGATE a separate power to "provide for the common Defence and general Welfare of the United States" in Article I, Section 8, cl. 1. Those words are rhetoric reflecting the Framers' view that the enumerated powers they delegate in subsequent clauses would conduce to the common defense and general welfare of the states, for the carrying out of which the power to tax is the one thing delegated in Article I, Section 8, cl. 1.

Were it otherwise, and were "providing for the common Defence and general Welfare" a grant of power on its own, no further enumerated powers would be needed. And yet, there they are...

The simple fact is, delegating any power to tax to the federal government was a very sensitive and contentious issue. Some explanatory words (along with the strict and hobbling limits on that power embedded at Article 1, Section 2, cl. 3; Section 8, cl. 1; and Section 9, cl. 4) were deemed politically prudent in order to help secure adoption of the replacement of the Articles of Confederation, within which the federal government had been wholly denied any taxing power.

BTW, THE POWER TO REGULATE COMMERCE delegated in Article I. Section 8, cl. 4 is expansively misrepresented in much the same way as is the explanatory note in cl.1. That power is to regulate commerce-- the generic manner and mechanisms by which goods and services cross borders-- not to regulate the nature and characteristics and volume and minutiae of those goods and services themselves. It is, by its straightforward words, the power to regulate commerce, not the power to regulate what is in commerce. Learn more about this here.

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."

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...

Global Uprising

by Chuck Baldwin

In my column last week, I reported on the mass protests going on in Europe over their governments’ dismal, yea, catastrophic leadership regarding the sanctions against Russia that are strangling their economies and making life a living hell. The column last week specifically reported on the mass protests going on in the Czech Republic.

But the mass protests going on in the Czech Republic are also taking place all over Western Europe—and the mainstream media is totally ignoring them.

From DailyFetched.com:

Citizens across the globe are rapidly rising up against their government’s failed leadership and globalist policies wreaking havoc on the economy; all the while vast amounts of the establishment media remain silent.

Tens of thousands of people openly reject the globalist ethos, which has resulted in soaring living costs and skyrocketing energy prices.

The protests are both direct in message and scope – the globalist idiocy must end.

In Indonesia, for example, thousands turned out en masse in some of the country’s biggest cities earlier this week, demanding their “government reverse its first subsidized fuel price increase in eight years amid soaring inflation.”

“Protests took place in and around the capital, Jakarta, and in the cities of Surabaya, Makassar, Kendari, Aceh, and Yogyakarta, among a series of demonstrations led by students and labour groups that police say could draw big crowds this week.”

“Thousands of police were deployed across Jakarta, many guarding petrol stations, fearing they could become targets of mounting anger over a price increase that unions say will hurt workers and the urban poor the most.”

Meanwhile in Italy, Italians gathered in the streets of Naples to protest against the nation’s rising energy costs.

Angry citizens were filmed burning their energy bills while chanting phrases such as “We don’t pay the bills!” and “Now it will be chaos!”

“We don’t want [soaring bills] anymore!” protestors also shouted.

Italians now face a brutal winter after European sanctions pelted Moscow with sanctions, one of their biggest gas importers, as the country races towards “green energy.”

Chile also so [sic] mass protests as citizens rejected a newly proposed, left-wing constitution providing the government with more control over the country’s citizenry.

Other countries like New Zealand and Germany [and The Netherlands and Great Britain and others] have also experienced protests against their governments as the uprising continues.

Sadly, in the United States the vast majority of resistance to the burgeoning Great Reset of the globalist elite has decided to vest all of its energy into reelecting Donald Trump. This is a huge mistake!

Afterword

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

-Voltaire

CHUCK BALDWIN TOUCHES ON several important points in this lengthy article, and I hope everyone reads the whole thing. One of those important points is that Americans need to get on their feet and in the street. As Mao famously and quite correctly observed, "Political power flows out of the barrel of a gun". There is no other kind.

We in America have long been accustomed to a generally orderly and respectful exercise of politics by the peaceable mechanisms of our established institutions. But we have enjoyed that tranquility, and the complacency it engenders, only because for several generations no one has risen to seriously menace the status quo-- until now.

Right now a well-organized, well-funded cabal seeking to destroy individual liberty, free markets, and the Constitutional chains that still hinder the unrestrained use of state power to crush dissent is diligently in motion. We see it in every claim of "emergency" power, every monolithic hymn-book chant by what was once an independent and watchdog media, every new revelation of western-culture-eroding indoctrination of our children in schools, every attack on our history, both by condemnation and by revisionism.

We see it in every act of violence (riots, flash mobs, looting, and assaults) across the country which are being excused, enabled and encouraged by an institutionally-ordered stand-down of those we have hired and paid to suppress such violence. We see it in every push for the centralization of more and more power in the state, under the mantle of any of a now rapid-fire series of hobgoblins.

Our great country is being systematically destabilized and drained of resolve on behalf of its infinitely-precious founding principles and their hard-won implementations. As Baldwin notes, the same assault is underway throughout the Western world.

We see all this. And yet, we naively imagine that somehow this massive, well-organized attack is going to fade away with the next election. It's not.

This massive, well-organized attack is not going to fade away until a whole lot of liberty-and-rule-of-law-cherishing people get up and show in no uncertain terms that they are not going to stand for the destruction or sidelining of the culture and principles their ancestors shed blood to establish.

ANOTHER OF BALDWIN'S IMPORTANT POINTS is that Donald Trump, for all his virtue in defending the nation from a Hillary Clinton presidency, is NOT a white knight who will make everything right. Frankly, no one could play that role, and no one will.

But, like Baldwin observes, the deluded notion that Trump is America's savior has distracted and drained energy and productive effort from too many generally right-thinking Americans for years now.

In fact, the obsessive focus on Donald Trump by many Republicans is the best thing the Democrats have going for them. Their six-year investment in demonizing Trump-- as vile and false a project as it was-- has long paid dividends by hampering Republican efforts to corral cross-over Democrats and significant numbers of independents.

Those crossovers and right-leaning independents are there, of course, and Republicans do get votes from some of them. But they would get those votes based on policy alone (when they embrace virtuous policy), not because of throwing the name Trump into play.

On the other hand, throwing the name Trump into play dissuades many possible cross-overs and independents, due to that successful demonization. In short, making Trump the focus of Republican political ambitions has no upside, and has definite downside, however unfair the reason.

Trump is both a dog-track rabbit to which too many Republicans reflexively turn their attention at the expense of more useful interests, and an albatross around the neck of the Republican party overall. He needs to recede into quiet and dignified retirement.

(All that practical reasoning aside, Trump also was no great president, having all the flaws Baldwin recites, and more. It can be said that much that he might have done right during his time in office was thwarted by the "Russiagate" fraud and the other relentless attacks on him during those four years, and that is true enough. But as shown in this short list of critical opportunities foregone-- to which much could be added-- that excuse is insufficient.)

FINALLY, BALDWIN ALSO makes good points about the Ukraine scheme by which America-- and the whole western world-- are being destabilized and bankrupted, and which is being made the excuse for much of the "Great Reset" initiatives under the pretense of that war being responsible for diminishing energy and agricultural capacity, among other things. And all that with an ever-growing risk of nuclear destruction as well.

I've addressed this issue in some detail in the opening article to this newsletter (and the linked articles therein), and so will leave things there, save only to point to an excellent recent article on this topic by Philip Giraldi, the observations in which nicely illustrate the deep-state-contrived character of the Ukraine situation.

ALL-IN-ALL, the excellent points of Chuck Baldwin's article serve to underscore the importance of American citizen action-- of a clear and hard-eyed variety. More broadly, those points serve to really bring home to everyone paying attention the urgency of the American people taking control of the overall situation here and using their Constitutionally-hard-wired power to shrink the Leviathan state in which the deep state thrives 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 Leviathan's explosive and ruinous growth with the successful implementation 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...

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...

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.
